All and all, I have really been enjoying these classes and discussions. I have had a few struggles the last month and time conflicts, but I am excited to take more online courses while I can, as well as the classes in person. Alice is a wonderful source of energy and information. I love learning how to create more happiness and overall peace in life. I love learning how to understand this life a bit more everyday. It is so great that all of the in person classes are available on Facebook, because it gives the opportunity to see them even if I cant make the class. Although, I know that it is much different and more effective when you can participate in person.
Thank you so much for everything you all do! I am so happy this program is available for me and everyone else it is benefiting!
This month I went to “The Astrological Heat of the Summer Invites you to Slow Down.” Although I didn’t have a personalized Natal Chart, it was super helpful to understand the meaning of “planets being in retrograde.” I was able to look at my own life and really think about the different ways that each planet slowing down, is having an effect in my life and telling me to reevaluate those aspects of my life. I’ve been learning a lot lately about the importance of slowing down, so that you can listen, learn, and understand the best ways to move forward, especially once life starts moving fast again; you want to make sure you are moving on the right path, with the right tools and mindset.
I also attended “understanding Divination and the Mystical.” This class was really interesting. I loved hearing about Alice’s experiences with Channeling. I also really appreciated her perspective that so many mystical practices are open for anybody to learn, it is just a matter of believing and practicing the art. As more people are becoming open to Metaphysics and Holistic Healing, it is exciting to me that more people will be open minded to these practices. It inspires me to continue to practice my gifts and continue to study and understand the different available mystical practices and ways of healing and connecting with the Universe, Spirits, and ourselves. I also really resonated with Alice as she spoke about her own questioning of people’s psychic and mystical practices; with the idea that we all have to understand the things people tell us with a grain of salt, while ultimately being the masters of our own ship.
This month I watched the “Finding Your Life’s Purpose” workshop on the Facebook page. I thoroughly enjoyed getting a new perspective on discovering your life’s purpose. It was really helpful how Alice explained how our Purpose can be small and unique to us; how it can be multi-dimensional and changing. I like how she had us ask a bunch of different questions to ourselves to begin to discover how we may already be living our Life’s Purpose as well as where we might want to explore more opportunities to discover and become more aligned with our purpose. I loved loved loved how she said at the end to “Stop searching and asking ourselves what we are supposed to be doing.” I feel like we often get so lost and frustrated when we consistently question ourselves and convince ourselves that we are not doing what we are supposed to. It is difficult sometimes because we do often base our purpose on what others have told us to do, or even what we may have told ourselves at some point in our life, not remembering that we change throughout life. But if we are constantly searching we are actually forcing an agenda, we are not allowing ourselves to be open to the Universe and listening to the signs and opportunities that are be given to us, and we will keep searching and never finding. I am now trying to see how and where I am already in my life’s purpose and how I can improve the many dimensions of this purpose! Yay!
I also watched “Busting Loose from the Money Game” workshop on Facebook. This was a marvelous class. I enjoyed being reminded to always express appreciation for everything including bills, taxes, the opportunity to contribute and support yourself, to support the world. I liked the idea of changing the energy of what you are paying for. “What you appreciate, appreciates.” I had never thought about how Tarah said your imagination is limited because it is your human mind, so when you let it go, unimaginable things happen. This is such a fantastic way of looking at our limitless self and infinite possibilities. The process she taught to reclaim our power over our creations and illusions was great! I am going to try this right away. I am really beginning to understand how we give our power away and how we create things we want and don’t want in our lives, so we have to practice changing our perspective, letting go to allow our Higher Self to guide, and reclaiming our power.
This month online I took “Avoid Distractions 101.” What a great weight lifted off of my shoulders to break down my to do list. I was able to see what were the things I want to do, should do, and not worry about. Then from there I was able to write down what I would get out of accomplishing the “should” task as well as what I will happen if I don’t. This brought some awesome perspective as well as some reality to the things I should be doing. It gave me more of a sense of wanting to do these things because I can actually see the benefit. It also took the worry out of my head and onto the paper. Somehow it made my to do list seem a bit less overwhelming and more realistic. The idea of closing the day affirming our accomplishments and appreciating our productivity is wonderful. I do catch myself always feeling under accomplished and then feeling the drag the next day of having to do the millions of things that are actually impossible to all accomplish in the timeline that I have set up anyway. Also, I love the idea of changing your perspective to see that we are always doing the things that we want to do, so we are still being productive to where our life is guiding us, even if our mind may be telling us something different.
I also took “Boost your Self Esteem 101” This class helped me to think about my strengths and weaknesses and learn to appreciate who I am. It reminded me to try and not compare myself to others because in reality we have no idea how anyone else’s life truly is. It helped me to remember that I need to make myself a priority, see my worth, and that I need to take action on the things I want out of this life. I really liked the idea about looking at the things that we may not like about ourselves from a different perspective to try and discover what we can learn from these things. I love to appreciate my quirks and see how they help to create the person I am and the vibration I bring to this world. It is so important to keep control over the reality that we create for ourselves starting from our mind.
And finally, I took the “Feng Shui 101” class online. I loved this class. I realized that unknowingly I already use a lot of Feng Shui concepts in my life. I have noticed that I love to remove clutter from my life, my room, my house. I grew up with a family that is always saving and hoarding things that we “might need” or that have “sentimental value.” I notice all of the energy associated with objects that I have. I love the idea of keeping only things around you that you love; especially since I am moving and this is a perfect time to get rid of things. I will definitely be using this way of thinking as I go through my things and decided what to keep and what to give away. What we hang on our wall is something that I have payed attention to, but not to the point of thinking how it may be channeling our energy to possibly feel less productive, or lonely, stressed, etc. Thinking about Feng Shui as more of a way of life of balance and tuning into the energies around you. I would love to learn more about this topic!
Overall, I had a wonderful and super insightful month of August with Happiness U. It’s been a real pleasure getting to know Alice more and listen to all of the amazing experiences she has had and fascinating perspective she puts on life and discovering happiness. The guest speakers are great! I’ve also had such a fun time getting to know the fellow members. This community is inspiring and uplifting and I look forward to meeting more people and taking more classes!
As always, Thank you so much for this program and everything you are all doing!
This month was a whirlwind, and I am so happy I had the support of Happiness U to keep me on top of everything. I started off the month a bit lonely and heartbroken; this man and his daughter (both of who I fell in love with) moved off island in a complicated situation. The first weekend of September I got hit by a car riding my bike to work. I ended up having to file an official complaint to the police commission about the officer who handled the accident. My bike broke, and I’ve been in physical therapy, and holistic therapy for the last month for my neck, back, shoulders. Our Landlords told us we had to vacate the property so they can renovate. So, the end of the month was filled with me helping my roommates get rid of all the stuff in the house, while also counseling them through moving to new places, and off island. I also had to move myself and my stuff. I had to let go of so many things because I came to live in a tiny room with my cousin until the end of the year. I quit my restaurant job at the end of the month, and have decided to leave that industry behind as I move forward in my career. I am still at Scarlet on the weekends, but focusing on my studies and finding work/internships in my new field. I mean I can go on, but woe is NOT me!! Not at all! I accept challenges and I’ve learned to appreciate change. I am learning to always be grateful for all things in my life, the good and the bad, and to always look for the best things that are coming out of my situations. I’ve begun practicing some healing and counseling work this month and that has been amazing! I’ve had to practice consistent meditation this month to help keep me calm and motivated.
1. This month I attended “Superhero Unmasked 2.0” I am absolutely amazed how Alice has been able to create this personality test / identity chart on her own. I think the more ways for us to learn about ourselves and why we are the way we are, the better. It’s awesome to be able to see the differences in people, so we are not always trying to be like everyone else. I am a “Resourceful Creator” water + wood. I think this hits me on the nose! I liked how Alice pointed out that depending on where we are in our life, we might be vibrating in different Superhero Archetypes. I can totally see this being the case. I actually had a question about this class:
Is there a normal variance in totals for each archetype? For example, my highest archetype (1) scored 54 points and my lowest archetype (5) scored 42. So, between all archetypes there is a 12 point variance. Is that a lot, a little, avg.? Is there any relevance in this?
I absolutely loved this class, and I really loved the scholarship meeting afterward. Alice never ceases to amaze me with her life stories and experiences. I really appreciate her, her journey, these classes, and this community more and more everyday.
My month was so busy, and then the only weekend I was free to attend class all weekend, there were no classes… of course! haha
2. This month on Facebook Live I watched “Tune Into You Divine Spirit.” I really enjoyed learning a bit more about tarot cards. I never knew about mixing stacks as well as the reasoning behind the number of cards you pull and the different intentions behind questions. I also watched “Past Life Regression” with Dalybeth reasoner. This class was fantastic. I liked the idea of realizing that we chose this life and lessons we needed to learn. Also, the idea that we have 3 chances at death, and in some way also choose which of those times to pass. This class added some great new perspective to my life. I also watched “Avoiding Distractions.” Wow, was this class helpful for me this month. I had so much going on, and it helped me to focus my attention, while also giving myself a break. And lastly, I watched “5 Critical Belief Hacks” with Bill Finlay. Loved this class. I am continuously understanding now that we have so much more control of our lives and our vibration than we believe we do. One of the hardest things for me to do is not “give reality to things I am resisting.” This class reminded me how important it is to do this (or not do this). I was reminded to keep believing in myself and trust my path, and be thankful for the journey.
3. This month online I took “Get Unstuck 101.” This class was perfect to help me through my move. It helped me to separate myself from things I don’t need in my life that may be holding me back. It helped me to decide to quit my job so that I can focus on what really is important to me right now: my studies and my new career direction. I love how Alice always reminds us that we are always doing what we want to be doing, so we should pay attention to that, and also, give ourselves a break sometimes from so much judgement. I’ve been trying to remove the word should from my vocabulary and this course was another reminder to look at my life now and what I want and like to be doing, rather than what I think I should be doing based off of past ideas. Even with my relationships, this class helped. It reminded me not to get stuck giving in to something that is not right for my path right now.
I also took “Clutter Clearing Plan 101.” Oh man was this class sooooo helpful for me. I was really inspired to trash, recycle, give away, and sell all the things in my old house. When I moved, I got rid of so many things, but the house I moved into is so tiny. There is no room for anything unnecessary. The plan in this class really helped me to go through my things and get rid of all things I don’t need, as well as help organize the house for the other people living here. I’ve organized everything and I feel so much better about this new space I am living in. I was very anxious about moving here, but I am feeling great now. I’ve never thought about the connections between which rooms in our house affect which parts of our life. It is great to know that! My mind feels so much lighter and better when there is not clutter around me. I’ve grown up in an immigrant family, who saves everything “just in case.” But, learning to declutter has been life changing for me. So, I loved the extra tips in this class!
Thank you so much every day for everything you all are doing!
