I finally finished my Wholistic Vision Board. I can’t wait to create a few more!! I couldn’t fit everything on this one of course! lol ❤ ❤
Vision boards are a great way to meditate on what’s true. Images translate what 1000 words can’t. Though I chose to use positive affirmations, precepts, and happy stuff I wanted to include more images than words. I am an advocate of these!!

I thought I’d design with much passion, color, and PoP since the winter always gifts me with feelings of power and inspiration unlike any other time of the year, and I wish that these were the only things the winter brings for me since I am a winter soul, but this time of the year also brings out some deep unpleasantness, some unease, some sadness, due to shedding old spiritual skin. It makes perfect sense, given that the wisdom from our ancestors teach that winter is time of inner reflection, connecting with our truest state of being, and letting go of what no longer serves us.
In my view we don’t live in the most emotionally healthy, or supportive society here in the western world, and so because of this revelation first from The Most High, and confirmation from resources that I am blessed to have come across I’ve found this newfound journey to getting in touch with my true feeling very exhausting, and I now see how much I have detached myself from them in winters past because subconsciously I just didn’t feel like doing the work of recognizing, truly feeling, and accepting them. Closing doors, and changing light bulbs spiritually is WORK. It is easier to act like a robot, and just walk around pretending to be unaffected by things (both pleasant and unpleasant). I now know it’s ok to feel what I feel, to be intuitive, and to accept my imperfect, complex self COMPLETELY. It is ok to detach from what doesn’t serve me, and thus doesn’t assist me in serving. Saying no to some things, which frees me to say yes to what’s best. This means shifting, shifting, and more shifting. Life won’t be easy, and it won’t be familiar. I’ve never done this before so I am going to make mistakes, and I’m going to lose, and I’m going to gain. I want to remain true to who I am and move forward creating a better world for my spirit to be free as God intended. After all nothing is hidden, we just think we can hide. Society has taught us to try and hide, because it’s “easier” for us to assimilate that way and not “bother” one another, and keep to “business” at hand. The only business I have is being in tune with myself and my Creator.
I know I’ve done myself a great disservice by not trusting my own inner nudges when things didn’t feel right for me, and I have often waited for some additional reason to be happy than just being happy and doing what brings me pure bliss & joy. In the name of “waiting on God to show me” I’ve waited in vain. I no longer hold myself hostage in a shame and fear based belief system thinking I’m doing God a favor, by giving into my own fears and insecurities. I still deal with abandonment issues, and I know this is the root of this tree. It has taken 31 years to grow so I have lots of work to do but I am committed to myself. Even if I am wrong, I can ask for forgiveness. God is the same today, yesterday and forever. He never intended for me to ignore and neglect myself. If nothing else I’m clear that it is for my mental, physical and spiritual health to FEEL. This is what my God-given senses were created to do. I have a right to own what I feel. No more self guilt trips for feeling, whether that’s bliss or the depression. God lights my path, and when I fall He is always there to pick me back up not to sit me in a far-off place and judge me but to hold me, dust me off, reveal to me another lesson to share, and reassure me of the depths of divine love. I am connecting with my inner ambience because I am FREE to be ME. 💝

For some reason God keeps revealing, and has to keep reminding me in one way or another that I’m a carrier of information, but I need to practice consistently delivering that information to the correct recipient: GOD. For my own health and wellness. I am a human sponge. And just like any sponge I have a capacity- I’m still a human.. just a human and a sponge 🙂 I’m sometimes negligent of prayer..yup.
Prayer and meditation both have plenty spiritual, and physical benefits. In addition, both alleviate my heart and mind from the heaviness of bearing False burdens. False burden bearing doesn’t necessarily mean bearing a burden that isn’t real…the burden is real, but isn’t OURS to keep. We have to give it to God.
Sooo, for the next 5 days -during my HeartSync I’ll be committing myself to more prayer. No mapping, no pre-planing, no guidelines, or rules to follow. Just simply delivering what I pick up. 🙂 a.k.a. prayer & or interceding. I hope you care to join in. If so, e-mail me at email@example.com and let’s talk about our experiences.

I love the freedom that communion brings. Enmeshment is restrictive, it tangles, confuses, traps and restricts whereas communion allows for intimacy, time, choice, space, and individuality, which all breed PEACE & HARMONY.
Overcoming enmeshment isn’t easy. I fight every day to maintain the level of freedom I’ve gained in this part of my life, and create avenues for more freedom. I just want to share some things I’ve implemented. Above all, without being honest with me, I couldn’t have gotten to this place.
1. I no longer have a best friend(s), I have sisters and brothers. Overcoming co-dependency.. The whole hierarchy system triggers a seemingly automatic “above the law” or “exception to the rules” way of relating in me, which has had very little to do with the person, and everything to do with my faulty belief system about accountability, mutuality, and boundaries. Taking the time to discover myself has helped me to be realistic about who’s compatible with today’s Alysia, and who isn’t. Only I can decide that. I love all of my sisters and brothers equally, and that’s enough for me. No bests and worsts! lol there’s so much freedom in that. I am working on being the best for myself for the first time in my life. We are attracted to what we BELIEVE is good, healthy and normal, and deserving on both conscious and sub-conscious levels. My new healthy and normal is Respect, Fun, Honesty and Accountability= true LOVE to me.
2. B O U N D A R I E S: I remember days spending countless hours talking, texting, or e-mailing with others (this was before I realized the importance prioritizing my personal space) Plus, I was kinda afraid of space then, because it meant I’d have to deal with me. It is my life purpose to encourage, and to give words of wisdom, and knowledge, BUT it’s not for the TAKING. God gave me the gift to use it wisely, and how I see fit. Guilt for not “helping” is not a move of God. False burden-bearing is not healthy. I would be unbelievably drained afterwards, but in the name of “help” I would forget about my first duty, which is to honor the temple God gave me, which includes taking care of ME, filling my spirit, guarding my heart, resting my mind, and choosing wisely what I put my mouth on. Nowadays I DON’T give unsolicited advice, and I selectively give advice that I’m asked for, and peace HATH FLOODED MY soul! lol Keeping my mouth shut really brings so much peace. Just because I have an answer doesn’t mean I should give it. Always use wisdom or people will drain you. You will drain yourself if you don’t protect yourself.
3. GOD FIRST: I put this at the bottom because it is the foundation on which all the above stands. Yahweh first out of love, and joy and fullness in all that YAH is and ever will be. Not because I fear He will leave me or because I have to work for love and approval. Castrated from purpose = Castrated from life. My purpose is to manifest God. Literally. LIVE. MOVE. And BE. IN HIM! = Fulfillment
There’s truly an art to allowing things to be: whether this means allowing yourself to be, or allowing things in your life to be. One has to be before one can become. In my voyage I’ve learned everything uncomfortable isn’t an emergency. Some things have a natural way of orbiting in and out of my mini-universe. This doesn’t mean desiring change, but doing nothing; it does mean taking the time to decide what I can and should change immediately, then eventually, and what needs to be left to God and fate. (And not disordering this out of hurt, fear and pride.) It takes a lot to accept that most things are ushered in or out naturally. Personal growth is very sacred, strategic, and its timing is very uncertain. The only thing I see that is certain is the beauty of renewal, and my commitment to being present in it. I’m reflecting on the occasions where I tried to skip steps, only to accomplish nothing, and then I would wonder why I was actually in the same place I started. I’m becoming more conscious of the truth that life isn’t avoidable. The key is being patient with my personal evolution. Well, just thought I’d share. 🙂
