One Way to Get Back On Your Unicorn When You Fall Off

One Way to Get Back On Your Unicorn When You Fall Off

This used to be my morning.

I woke up and rolled over to grab my cell phone. I checked my emails. I mindlessly scrolled through my Facebook feed. Eventually I rolled out of bed and made my way to my computer. I would start working right away still in a sleepy fog. I would half ass work all morning. I would realize what time it was and jump up while in a major computer haze, run around my house like a maniac trying to get everything together for lunch, brush my teeth (because I forgot to earlier,) pee (holy moly I had to go so bad,) realize I don’t have time to shower, make lunch or walk into town to meet my husband for lunch so I drive and buy lunch and I stink.

I totally fell off my unicorn!

Sound familiar in your own personal way?

I started a morning routine and it shifted my morning in a major way. I decided I was going to party!

10 Practical Ways to Raise Your Positive Vibrations

newsletter

mindbodygreen

Every thought or feeling has a vibration that can be measured. The reason you want to raise these vibrations is to become high enough to connect to the power of intention. That place is the sweet spot where you feel joy and happiness, and your dream life will become your reality.
Perhaps Dr. Wayne Dryer put it best in his bookThe Power of Intention: “What you may fail to see inside is a result of how you choose to process everything and everyone in your world. You project onto the world what you see inside, and you fail to project into the world what you fail to see inside. If you knew that you were an expression of the universal spirit of intention, that’s what you’d see. You’d raise your energy level beyond any possibility of encumbrances to your connection to the power of intention. It is only discord acting within your own feelings that will ever deprive you of every good thing that life holds for you! If you understand this simple observation, you’ll curb interferences to intention.”
Wayne, you are awesome and you raise some wonderful points.

Follow Your Intuition or Get Bitch Slapped

I was thinking about what to write my blog about this week when I decided to take a moment to be silent. I took a moment to listen to my intuition and it said to write about intuition.  My intuition told me to write about intuition. It’s so self-centered always wanting to talk about itself. Haha!

I am going to share with you two stories. One where I followed my intuition and one where I didn’t.

Story One: I Tried to Catch the Flu

I went to college and majored in dance. I loved to dance and I spent a lot of time auditioning for companies and shows. My heart and soul wanted to perform. I was doing pretty well, but I didn’t have health insurance and I never knew exactly how I was going to pay my rent. I got the opportunity to teach dance at a public school. My intuition was screaming, “Nooooooooooooooooo!” My parents, friends and family were screaming, “Yeeeeeeeesssssssss! Everyone kept telling me how lucky I was and what a great opportunity it was. I was offered a salaried job with really great health benefits. I heard a million reasons from other people as to why I “should” take this job…so I did totally ignoring my intuition.

I was grateful to have a job and on paper it seemed awesome. In reality I had 35 kids in a tiny room trying to teach them to dance. If one of the kids in my class seemed really sick, I would get close to them so I would get sick too. When I was driving there I would fantasize getting into a car accident so i wouldn’t have to go. One day I hurt my back really bad and the doctor said I couldn’t go to work and I actually yelled, “Woohoo” in his office. I was excited about being hurt because I wouldn’t have to go to work. Those were signs from my intuition. My intuition was like, “Lady…you better start listening to me!” Those voices couldn’t be silenced and they were getting louder and louder.

I wish I could tell you I quit that job on my own, but I didn’t. I was going to, but then they eliminated my position which was such a blessing. I thought, “Heck yeah Universe! Thank you!” I received unemployment for a year and during that year I really found myself and started on a journey where I listened to my intuition most of the time.

Story Two: My Intuition Knew What My Domain Name Should Be

I have owned a lot of domain names. Yummyday.com, taraleighweathers.com, rockoutwithyoursoulout.com, taraleighlove.com, hothealthylove.com and others that I can’t remember. I have always wanted my domain name to be taraleighlovesyou.com for years and I would always listen to other people instead of my intuition. They would tell me  I should have a domain name that is shorter, taraleighlovesyou is cheesy or no one will remember that domain name so at the last minute I would chicken out and change it to something else. With the other domain names I never felt proud of my name. It felt like a dress that is really cute on the hanger, but when I put it on it just didn’t fit right. I really don’t like it when my clothes don’t fit right so eventually I had to listen. The day I purchased taraleighlovesyou.com is the day my business changed. It became so authentic. Everything else fell into place. My peeps came to me because the people I want to work with love that taraleighlovesyou is my domain name. Maybe they think it’s cheesy…but they love cheesy! If you don’t like cheesy things then you probably don’t like me either. I am the queen of the cheese.

You Are Invited to My Phishy Garden Joy Party

newsletter sign up

This morning my friend Cora told me that she was having a conversation with God/the Universe and asked him what to do.  She was feeling very low on energy and he simply said.  You need to have more fun and hang out with your friends.  He also said that she needed to talk to me.  I also have conversations with God/the Universe in the morning and this morning I asked him how I could help people to have more fun in their lives and he simply said, “Dance with them.”  I immediately asked him to dance with me and we had a lot of fun dancing to Carly Rae Jepson’s “Call Me Maybe” while I made my bed.

After I got dressed and went downstairs I felt called to make a video for you all.  I knew I wanted to dance with you to “Garden Party” from Phish NYE at Madison Square Garden.  Watch the video to find out why I picked that song.  So…if you want to have some fun today, dance with me 🙂  I would be honored <3
