Too many times we worry more about what we put into our mouths that our bodies must digest and don't worry half as much about the purity of what comes out of our mouths. In silence we gain understanding and wisdom. In right speech and action from the heart, we send out waves of empowerment. An old Jewish proverb says, “Because we have 2 ears and 1 mouth, we should listen twice as much as we speak”.
Listen and speak from your heart, for the heart never lies. Our minds get cluttered and hooked by the Ego. The heart is home of Spirit and truth, when it recognizes wisdom, it lights up. When the mind becomes attached to misunderstandings, the words spoken become muddy and creates a discomfort and clenching of the stomach. Listen closely to your intuition, to the heart of the matter. Let your words uplift, instruct and empower. It is the heart that knows the truth and radiates light.
The book of changes or I-ching teaches that the superior person is careful with his words, knowing that he is reflected in them. It also teaches, only through daily self-renewal of character can you continue at the height of your powers. The wisdom in the I-ching on becoming a superior person instructs that qualities of humility, good manners and the willingness to look within oneself to find error will insure supreme happiness and success.
All ancient spiritual texts speak of guarding the tongue and listening with intent focus on all levels. For the Spirit of man absorbs and projects intention on a feeling level, intellectual level and spiritual level. Spend time in quiet reflection daily. Remember that in nature, words are not needed to communicate the perfection and beauty of all that exists. The sounds of nature are pure, powerful and reverberate throughout all of the Universe without language ever being used.

There are no coincidences in life. Things happen for a reason. It's the meaning we take from events that creates the impact on us. This week has had a huge impact on me and others. Are you one of those people?
For weeks, the energy has been strange, isolating and confusing. Plans, desires and dreams have made their way into our conscious mind, begging for attention. As we put focused energy to those intentions, we move into making them reality. And then comes the red light that says, “stop, it's not time yet.” Mind ride right? Yea, I know. I've been there too.
I lost my voice on Sunday due to recovering from a respiratory virus. My throat hasn't been in pain and yet I have no sound coming out. It's forced me into STOP mode. I can't work, I can't answer calls, I've had to get creative with clients in doing readings via phone/chat combinations. I've received several emails and messages from those struggling with this energy.
Let me assure you, you aren't ALONE. You are not meant to self destruct, be suspended in animation or put through some weird test of failure. Like me, you are being given a pause. Time to reflect, time to face nagging, unconscious self doubts and fears. These things must be looked at, faced and overcome for the next leg of your journey to be powerful and authentic.
Sure there may be people around you that are no phased, untouched and unaware of the energy you are wrestling with. It doesn't mean SQUAT. It means you are leaving something behind before making your way to bigger things, broader horizons.
March has 2 eclipses that are already bringing things into focus that need your attention. It's time to face these things head on. You will either adjust your perception of these things or people and find peace, or you will leave them behind in a gut wrenching way. The choice is yours.
That red light is getting ready to turn green, are you ready to hit the gas? Are you ready to explode into the future and have your dreams made manifest? That is what this energy is asking.
Due to the strong nature of struggle, I've knocked my sale rates down again. I won't be taking calls again until the weekend, but if you schedule now, you will get in on the Eclipse Sale. Book here.
As I recover my voice, know that I am praying for your success in these trying times. Much Love, Bernadette

I'm Up, Down and All Around
by Bernadette Dickinson
Sounds like the start of some killer lyrics to me.... truth is, it's life and sometimes life is full of ups and downs. Have you been feeling like the energy is a bit bi-polar. Like the constellations need some mood stabilizers? One minute you feel happy, the next you are in a puddle on the floor questioning your very existence.
It's a mad, mad world. (QUE SONG Below)
You're not alone! Everyone is experiencing this energy in their own way.
Being sensitive to energy makes it a little tougher than for those who are numb or asleep. You're not helpless though. You can do things to protect your energy and also to recognize when it's just energy and has nothing to do with you. (I'm not saying you're not important) What I'm trying to say is that the ego likes us to personalize energy and make it be about something. HUGE MISTAKE!
The best way to handle funky energies is to just observe them, DON'T ABSORB them. Don't find reasons for the energy. Just allow it and watch it, don't react to it.
I'm doing a BLAB (it's a livestream video app) at 10am Pac today on protecting your energy. I hope you'll join in the discussion and chat. Go here Blab.im/bvision
In the meantime, be a duck, let it all roll off your back.
Much Love & Blessings,
Success in life is defined differently by each of us. What defines success for me is very different than what defines success to most people. If you want to grow, evolve and move beyond your current reality, you must be open. Being open and vulnerable means you are willing to admit there are things you just don't know. You must be willing to admit you have things to learn and that you have room to grow. The fact is, in order to improve yourself, you must take 100% responsibility for what shows up in your life.
YOU ARE COACHABLE IF:
You want more out of life
You are grateful for what you do have but you are striving for more. You are willing to do whatever it takes to experience more love, more compassion and more joy, not just for yourself, but others. You recognize there are patterns that repeat in your relationships, career and life. You know that nothing is static, that everything must change and grow, including you.
You are committed to being the best version of you
You are conscious that you have experienced some set backs in life and love but you want to forgive. You don't want to be stuck in the past or filled with regret for things you haven't done. You really do know that there are things you can improve in the way of reactions and judgments. You aren't concerned with gaining others approval but you want to leave your mark on the world. You want to be known for being kind, loving, compassionate.
YOU ARE NOT COACHABLE IF:
You think you have it all figured out
Regardless of how many people you alienate you believe you don't have a problem. You like to blame others for anything you experience that is uncomfortable. You are only concerned with your own success, well being and appearance. You have to have your own way even if your way doesn't work. You will not allow for opposing viewpoints. Coaching won't work for you because you believe you are already the best you can be.
You have no interest in changing
Sure you've lost relationships, clients, jobs and friends but you really believe it's them and not you that needs to change. Your life is littered with broken relationships and chaos. You leave behind you a wake of destruction for others but you are left unscathed so what's there to be concerned about. The only thing you want to change is your bank account balance and how much vacation time you can take. As long as you don't see the harm in your behavior, you are not coachable.
While this is just a short list, the questions are easy enough to help you identify whether you are open to being coached. It's important to recognize if you are really open to change. If you are, the right coach will appear, one that resonates to you. When that person shows up, be grateful, be open, be willing and be committed.

Everything that has happened in my life has led to this moment. It's led to my current understanding, desires and preferences. Whether I have perceived it as good or bad, happy or sad, matters not. With each event that produced an imprint on my soul, I have grown. Even though I may not have understood the impact of those events, they were necessary for clarity of purpose, desire and intention.
Throughout the Universe there is so much I don't know but aim to discover. It will take much probing to answer the mysteries of life I find myself wanting to understand. Only through deliberate choices, intentions and experiences will I scratch the surface.
I don't know much in the vastness of life, but I know who I've been and who I'm becoming. In any given moment I shift my self expression and project to the world a different version of myself. What's most important to me is that in each projection, the energy of acceptance, compassion and love is felt by those I interact with. It's also important that in some way I offer a doorway to the other, that leads to the search of infinite possibilities.
In a world that feels all too finite but is in reality infinite, the dance of discovery is full. We each get to choose which part of this world we want to explore, understand and experience. Beyond what you or I think is possible, lies a field of infinite possibility. That infinite field is where imagination reigns supreme. To tap into it we must be willing to go beyond the constraints of our limiting beliefs and fear.
Within the field of infinite possibilities lay the realization of your deepest desires. Experiences that will bring you into alignment with your true Self or true nature. Your true Self has no limits, no boundaries, no restrictions and knows no fear. At one level or another we are each on a journey to discover the truth and to access infinite possibilities.
The journey to understanding begins in your mind and your ability to reach beyond current circumstances. It's a journey that will unleash answers and even more complex questions. It's an exciting, exhilarating quest, that can only be found within. As you get more conscious of your thoughts, emotions, desires, your imagination will open paths of exploration you never knew existed. Those paths lead to the alignment you seek.
Ready for the journey? Go within and begin to explore your imagination, intuition and you will find the field of infinite possibilities is real. Once you accept the realness, you will begin to experience solutions and synchronicities that guide you directly to your heart's desires.
Enjoy the ride!

Facing the shadows
By Bernadette Dickinson
2016 is a year of purification, clearing and facing the inner shadows. In order to succeed this year we must purge all the old trash and unconscious programs we are walking with. It’s a time of crisis if you are not willing to face the shadows.
Shadows are the fears, beliefs and programs that were unconsciously accepted from childhood, that continued on. In order to thrive as a Spiritual being and evolve to a higher level of understanding we must face the very things that are holding us back.
The only way to go beyond your shadows is to shine a light on them. You can’t hide from them, ignore them hoping they will just go away. Ignoring the inner shadows will only serve to give them power. You gain power when you face them. When you dig deep and find your fears, beliefs and programs that are false, you are able to discharge all mental, emotional and even physical energy tied to them.
Planetary energy is set to intensify this need to find out what is hiding under the surface of your consciousness. The more you avoid facing it, the more chaos ensues in your life. The purpose is to give you the wisdom and knowledge of what is lurking in the shadows. Once you identify the hidden blocks and limitations within, you will be able to move beyond them and dump the trash they’ve created in your life.
We will never stop growing, learning, evolving. The more you take on the role of being the detective in your own life, looking for the hidden information, the easier your life will become. Some may try and tell you that it is better to ignore the shadows. If you do, it only serves to suppress them and you are inadvertently allowing the shadows energy to build. Avoidance and denial is a pointless endeavor. In order to clear, purify and purge, it’s absolutely necessary to face your fears head on.
If you are ready, don't go it alone, CHECK OUT THE CHARMED LIFE COURSE it's all you need to do the deep inner work to release all fear, limiting beliefs and unconscious programs.

Have you ever had an experience where you get super upset, angry or triggered and just explode? It could be a torrent of anxiety, tears or yelling. Eventually you run out of steam and feel completely exhausted. Sometimes it happens after an argument with your partner, family or even at work. Then, the next thing you know you collapse in a heap.
“The morning after”, you wake up feeling completely, energetically, emotionally, spent. Your eyes are puffy, your sad and lack all motivation, energy and just feel like going back to bed. That is what I refer to as an “emotional hangover”. It's a feeling of grief, and it's usually accompanied by a feeling of regret.
The emotional hangover typically happens because during those explosive episodes, you lose your connection to Higher Self and Source. For a moment, you've bought into the illusion of separation and entered into “fight or flight” mode. The good news is, it's temporary. The hangover will pass and you will regain that foothold you had on your path to ascension, wisdom and understanding.
One of the signs of growth is that you have very few triggers, very few unconscious reactions. The more you've worked through your issues, the less you need to react, defend and justify yourself to others. The current planetary energy is set up to assist us in seeing where we still have shadows or inner work to do. As we face those shadows, we become more awake, more connected and things flow very easily.
Mercury is moving forward, while it gains momentum you may experience some periods of emotion. Those around you may even be feeling the “emotional hangover” from the retrograde. Go easy, step lightly and be grateful for the shadows that emerged through the Mercury Retrograde period.
Blessings, Bernadette Dickinson
