Hearts for Hounds Dog Rescue

Happy Holidays!

One of my favorite sayings is “Giving is the new getting.” It’s so true! When we give of the heart, our vibrations raise immensely affecting everything and everyone around us- and that is priceless!

Join me this year in my efforts to raise money for my favorite Long Beach Dog Rescue Organization, Hearts for Hounds. Your donation will go toward the care and placement of the many sweet dogs that Hearts for Hounds rescues every year.

I have personally adopted two dogs, Stella and Gus, from Hearts for Hounds and love the organization, the people who run it and the reason why it exists. This shelter is run with love.

Please make a donation today. No amount is too small and every amount is greatly appreciated.

I will be gathering funds until January 1, 2011 and then presenting Hearts for Hounds with a check on behalf of all of us.

Thank you for your love and money=)

For more information about Hearts for Hounds and to see photos of the many precious dogs available for adoption, visit their website: HeartsForHounds.com
ps. Their donation button doesn’t work on the site, otherwise I’d use that=)

Now Available: Energy Healing for Pets


I am happy to announce a new service for your animal friends: Energy Healing for Pets!

Energy Healing for Pets is a gentle, non-invasive way to assist all animals in healing physical illness, fear, anxiety, and even behavioral issues. Other benefits include restored balance, bringing about an improved state of health, the ability to accelerate the healing process as well as keeping your animal friend calm, at rest and peaceful during stressful situations.

These healing energies work at the cellular level thereby releasing the vibrations that hold the pattern of disease and collective past trauma.

Each session for your pet is $55 and lasts from 20 – 30 minutes. For your pet’s comfort, I can travel to you. Remote healing is also an option and recommended in emergency situations.

Your pet’s health and happiness are just an energy shift away!

Run Your Own Race

As the avid entrepreneur that I am, I study marketing techniques constantly. The age-old advice has always been to “crush, eliminate, destroy and out-do” your competition. I’ve come to realize years ago that if I’m focusing my attention on my “competition” and “crushing them,” and since “energy flows where attention goes,” then I’m not allowing energy toward the growth of my own business. Rather, I’m expending my precious time and energy on other people and not myself.

This reminds me of my first grade teacher, Mrs. Miller, who was always reminding us to “mind your own business.” What GREAT advice! Okay, I will, and I urge you to do the same. Here’s why:  Competition is an illusion.

Competition is the imagined phantom of people who are stuck in scarcity thinking. Lack mentality creates fear. Fear creates imaginary monsters. Competition is one of those monsters.

See, if you are truly living authentically and your business is a reflection of your authenticity, then by undisputable Universal Law, you will attract your ideal clients. If you are running your own race and keeping your focus on being your excellent self and providing excellent service, then the power of your focus and intention will outshine and override any and all lack-based fears. In fact, you’ll be so busy improving and expanding your game to be of even greater service, that you won’t have the time, energy or inclination to consider your “competition,” for lack of a better word.

Why do you think horses wear blinders in races? Think about it. Horses are trained to only look ahead to see where they are going. If they did not wear blinders, they would be distracted by the other horses and probably run right into each other. That would prove to be quite chaotic and potentially deadly.

I offer that the same happens with us. If we are focused on everything that is going on around us and comparing ourselves to others, we lose sight of ourselves, our goals and objectives. We must put on our blinders to keep our distractions at bay and focus on what is in front of us—the next step, and ultimately the illusive finish line.

This is where meditation and visualization come into play. I suggest daily meditation (I love walking meditation) before you start your workday, so that you are a clear channel for your business. Inspirations, ideas and insights will flow to you. Visualize what you want your business to look like: Who are you serving? Where are you going, traveling to, speaking with? What kind of money are you making? What does expansion look like?

The only race you have is with yourself. Are you living authentically? Is your business in alignment with your core values? Are you open to spiritual guidance and expansion? Are you always seeking to improve your services and to offer tremendous value? This is your race, honey.

Put your blinders on and give your attention to YOU and your business and watch the momentum grow. Your business is like a fingerprint: one of a kind. Even though you may offer similar products or services, nobody can deliver what you can because there is only ONE you. How can anyone compete with that?

The Grounding Room

Zelda Fitzgerald

Back in my college days, as an English major, I adored the rogue American writers who exiled to Paris – Ralph Waldo Emerson, Mark Twain, Henry James, Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, E. E. Cummings and their many creative, freedom-loving friends. I especially loved F. Scott Fitzgerald. In fact, I dated a fellow English major and our nicknames among our hardly-ever-sober social crowd were F. Scott and Zelda – after  F. Scott Fitzgerald and his “crazy” wife.

It is believed that Zelda was Fitzgerald’s inspiration for my all time favorite literary heroine, Nicole Diver, of Tender Is The Night. In the story, Nicole and her husband Dick live a glamorously decadent lifestyle, wrought with fabulous dinner parties, many colorful players and ever-flowing alcohol. On occasion, Nicole would become emotionally overcome, mainly by anxiety, and would hide out in her bathroom, sometimes sobbing, other times thrashing about. I’d venture to guess that she even slept it off in there a few times.

I remember feeling really validated by Nicole’s bathroom behavior when I first read Tender Is The Night. Since childhood, retreating to the bathroom was my escape from the insanity around me. Over the years, I’ve spent hours locked away in various bathrooms melting down, calming down, crying, sobbing, temper-tantruming, contemplating and cursing the world. I would call this “Going Nicole.”

As I continue on my spiritual path, the drama has quieted, but I still need to retreat to the ladies room on a regular basis to ground myself. It’s the one quiet place where I can be still, tune everything out and take a few minutes to communicate with myself – my higher self – to check in, feel what’s rattled me, acknowledge it, receive the message it is offering me, give thanks, clear it, breathe and continue my day peacefully. I always take the time to ground myself, so that I don’t unravel later or contaminate others with my spun-out energy. Grounding, clearing, untangling… whatever you want to call it, is good for you and everybody around you! It is essential for living a psychic life.

I encourage everyone to have a Grounding Room and use it regularly, so that you don’t find yourself Going Nicole!

Your Psychic Senses

We are all born psychic and we all have our own psychic strengths, whether it’s clairvoyance, (clear seeing) clairsentience (clear feeling), clairaudience (clear hearing) or claircognizance (clear knowing). Many people experience all four psychic senses; however, it is common that one sense is more dominant than the others.

Which is your strongest psychic sense?

Clairvoyance: Clear seeing. This is when psychic messages come through as visions or images on the screen of your mind. These images can be still or moving, occurring when your eyes are either opened or closed, while awake, daydreaming or asleep.

Clairsentience: Clear feeling. Many times people refer to having “gut” feelings, sensation in their spleens and even experience the physical pain of others. Clairsentients are very sensitive to other people’s energies and emotions. Psychic messages are felt in the body.

Clairaudience: Clear hearing. Messages are received through voices, music or other sounds in clairaudients. These sounds usually occur internally – in the mind, in the form of thoughts. For most clairaudients, messages come through to them in their own voices. At times, messages may be heard physically with the ears and originate from an external source.

Claircognizance: Clear knowing. This occurs when information, an idea, concept or thought comes to mind and has the feeling of importance. The knowledge received often flashes suddenly into mind seemingly out of nowhere. Knowing who is on the phone, for example, before answering it or knowing personal things about people you just meet is claircognizance.

Once you determine your strongest psychic sense, you can begin developing it… much more on that to come!

Watch for magic,
Charlene
