LIGHTEN UP with Jo

 

BLOG

I am guided to write blogs purely to share with others.  I have lead a ‘seekers’ life of looking for something without consciously knowing what I was looking for and then just trying to figure it out as I go. If any words I share, resonate and light up another person, then my job is done.

After reading the blog, you might like to explore an Akashic Records Reading for yourself or your loved ones, to delve deeper into your path and learn what you need to be doing next, what to be aware of and discover the secrets in store for your future.

There comes a time to say “what the fudge” and follow the heart instead of the head! 

Being a very logical person all of my life, I have learned to, and relied upon, using my smarts to ensure I had a job with enough money to support myself - put food on the table, warm...

THE LIGHTHOUSE

I have an image in my mind of a magnificent lighthouse that stands on the edge of the ocean on a beautiful island somewhere on the globe. This is a very special lighthouse. I have created the lighthouse from my life lessons, my life experiences and inform...

Definition:  The action or fact of moving along in a steady, continuous stream

Q:  What has been the biggest surprise in my first year of living in a foreign country? 

A:  How hard it has been spending all day every day with my beloved husband!

Now don’t get me wrong, I love my husband and I love spending time with him BUT, all day every day?...

I wasn’t aware that I wasn’t aware!

Before you delete and move on with your day, allow me to briefly share with you why the word Awareness (knowledge or perception of a situation or fact) is my buzz word.

To keep it simple, ‘I don’t know what I don’t know’.  Meaning, if...

Nike coined the ultimate phrase Just Do It, which says it all for me!

I love the phrase as it cuts through the ‘over thinking’, the ‘doubt’’, the ‘fear’ and the ‘stall tactic’ processes that a person can go through when trying to decide or action something.  If one has...

When I was young, I thought those who meditated were either hippies (earthy vegetarians) or Gurus (disciplined monks) and they were either seeking spiritual enlightenment or hiding from society.  I am neither hippy nor guru but cannot imagine my life now without medita...
