The Heart Whisper Card Reading for December was for me both powerful and in so in sync with my Focus on Abundance challenge that starts this week. Here is the reading on the cards and the energy as I felt the energies,
I wake up full of gratitude, I meditate, draw an oracle card, write in my journal and all’s well. I have planned my day the night before and I am full of smiles. The world looks bright, my vibes are high and the day goes well.
I know my friends and others see me as a very positive person.
There are other days when I start out feeling overwhelmed with everything I have to do, worried about one thing or another, and feel like just going back to bed and pulling the covers over.
Or the day starts well and then goes pear-shaped.
Even for very positive people, life is rarely smooth all the way, all the time.
As the old song made famous by the divine Ella Fitzgerald goes, “into each life some rain must fall”.
How can we be expected to stay positive at times like that?
I believe we have a choice, to either let the trials and setbacks get us down and keep us down, or to deal with them consciously and deliberately so we keep them in perspective.
Remembering that, as Ella Fitzgerald sings in that song, “some day the sun’s gonna shine”.
The trick is to stay positive till that day when the sun shines.
But before we can stay positive, we have to get positive.
As Tony Robbins says, we have to change our state. He also says we can do that, if we want to, “in a heartbeat”.
We need to decide that telling ourselves we are too sad, too worried, too overwhelmed to change straight away is not an option.
Let’s make being positive, and grateful, and happy, our natural state.
So what can we do to raise our vibes and stay positive through the tough times?
And what’s this about being able to do that in a heartbeat?
Here is a simple, 5 step process.
Step 1: Say aloud (maybe not so loud if you are in a public place!) I know I have the power to change my state now: in the face of all my challenges I choose to be positive.
Step 2: Ask yourself “What don’t I want in my life right now?” and list the things you don’t’ want (for example, financial stress, unhappy relationship, illness…).
Step 3: Ask yourself “So What DO I want?” and alongside each thing you don’t like, list what you do want (for example, financial freedom, happy relationship, abundant good health…).
Step 4: Focus on the list of what you do want (Step 3), decide that’s where you want your attention to be, and press your Reset button.
Step 5: Then do or plan something you know will keep your positive vibes up – call a cheerful friend, treat yourself to a long bath, write in your journal about all the things you are grateful for in your life.
And whenever you feel your positive vibes are dropping and you are heading into negative vibe territory, reach for that Reset button and change your state – in a heartbeat!
In the Focus on Abundance Free 5 Day Challenge I will be expanding on what I have shared here and going to more detail about how to create and maintain positive vibe.
Here we are coming up to the end of another year and the beginning of a new one.
Thinking about that a couple of weeks ago I realised I wanted to do everything I could to make 2017 truly a year of abundance, especially for my business.
Not that I haven’t experienced abundance in many ways this year, but a lot of that abundance has been in terms of learning and not as much as I would like in terms of financial profitability.
So I decided to really focus on abundance and to challenge myself to get ready for that in a systematic way.
And because I get much more enjoyment and traction out of doing challenges with others than just solo, and I like fast challenges and i find with 15 minute daily exercises I get things done (30 day challenges exhaust me!), I created the Focus on Abundance 5 Day Challenge, to start Monday December 5.
The content for the challenge came from a survey in my Facebook group and on my page and discovering that many of us had the same struggles.
The Focus on Abundance FREE 5 Day Challenge will help you – and me – get the clarity, focus and momentum for us to create our wildly abundant 2017.
Every day we will look at a specific aspect of the challenge. I’ll send an email on the day, with a theme and an exercise you can do in15 minutes or less, then I’ll be doing a live training on Facebook Live, with Q&A. That will be recorded and available for 24 hours afterwards – so if you can’t make the live session you will be able to watch the recording.
There is also a private Facebook Group where you’ll be able to ask me questions and get support from me and other participants.
So what are the specific areas we’ll be working on?
We’ll start by helping you get very clear on your intention for what you are going to focus on for abundance in 2017.
Out of all the possibilities what’s the one area where you most want to see abundance in your life and or your business?
It might be relationships
it might be health
it might be business
it might be money
it might be personal growth
it might be spirituality
it might be fun and recreation
it might be contribution
Then we get down to the nitty gritty of what’s holding you back and how to deal with that. I call them abundance blocks – and one of the main culprits there is often (always?) our limiting beliefs. I have a foolproof, works-every-time exercise to help you deal with those!
Next I am going to take you through an exercise to help you refocus whenever you lose focus and get off track.
Finally, on the fifth day we bring it all together and we create a powerful vision for your wildly abundant year.
I’ll be with you every step of the way, with daily training and and live Facebook sessions and Q& A and a private Facebook group which will include others taking the challenge, so we can all support one another on this journey.
How does that sound?
Does it look like a good way to go?
Does it feel right for where you are right now and where you want to be in 2017?
This month’s reading speaks volumes to me as I have been boldly finalising my rebranding.
These were the words I wrote after I drew these cards and so I had the title for this blog post.
This is your time to shine, to get out of your limiting box that stops you shining. Yes that takes courage and when you do listen to those whispers of your heart.
You allow all fear to drop away and that inner glow that comes from within will shine forth. The gratitude flows and your heart says thank you, thank you, thank you, and hugs you. Feeling so joyful that your own daily gratitude will open those doors to abundance that, you deserve and desire.
Then in the Heart Whisperer Community Kim wrote in response to the cards I shared :
I see these cards as a road map or guide book to find the proper path to lead me where my Life’s Journey wants to take me. Courage and boldness have come together to convince me that my Journey is not about how others judge me. My Journey must be guided by self love and self confidence. I must stop along the way to meet new people and gain new knowledge. I must step forward and help those in need, and be wise enough not to pass judgement on those who do not understand or accept me.When I find the proper path, and achieve these goals, I will be rewarded with inner peace, good friends, many stories to tell, and the continuing gift of laughter and love.
Here is the reading with a meditation to bring in the energy of November ( 8 mins)
Do You Have A Dream You Are Hiding From The World?
In April 2016 I created my big business dream and I wrote about it here.
Since then I have worked hard to make that vision my reality.
About a month ago I came to believe that the problem was that I was not focussed on my money goals for my business. I was reading Get Rich Bitch, Lucky Bitch and we were discussing the book in our mastermind. So I changed my focus and did all the exercises about money. I already tracked all expenses and have a daily tracker for recording my daily abundance. I then started writing out 5 big goals every day with a money value on each one. This raised my vibes for a while.
Last week, I became aware that my motivation had dropped and the passion was missing. I was floundering and then overwhelm sets in along with it’s friends procrastination and self-sabotage!
Something Had to Change
Walking on the beach I said to Des that I felt I had lost sight of my big vision. I was feeling upset and frustrated. I had put so much work into this and felt I was on the path forward. Now I felt I had hit a brick wall.
Des suggested another way of looking at this. He shared with me a concept he had learned from the late coach Thomas Leonard. This is called “creating a vacuum to pull you forward”. The idea adapts the principle from physics that “nature abhors a vacuum”. You use this as a metaphor, focussing on your vision and clearing the space between you and your vision. In other words, Des said: “That mental space that you create is a “vacuum” and because nature doesn’t like (“abhors”) a vacuum your vision will pull you towards it”.
Doing this you stop struggling, striving and pushing.
This requires mental and emotional discipline, especially for those of us who have been taught that we have to work hard and sometimes struggle to achieve what we desire. This brings in the area that I coach on of allowing. I have all the tools 🙂
This idea of creating a vacuum to pull me towards my big vision was a fresh insight. I was even able to visualise this. I am a Vision Board Coach, I have all my Law of Attraction Tools but I had put clutter or even blocks between me and my big vision. So the next thing I had to do was to identify that clutter, those abundance blocks, and clear the space.
Taking My Vision Off The Shelf
I had to take my big vision down from the shelf and do some serious refreshing of the picture of that vision. Here is where I started First I printed out my big business dream that has become my vision:
My biggest dream is to complete my book,Lucky To Be Alive, be speaking to thousands, make that millions online and around the world, with my Heart Whisper Paintings as my backdrop. Sharing my story of saving my life through really learning to love myself and showing others how to do the same through listening to the whispers of their heart and living their heart’s desire This will create ripples of change and bring more love and more peace to the world.
I then pasted this along with my dialysis download that birthed the Heart Whisper:
It’s all about love Suzie. You will be healed when you see and feel only love for you first, then you will be all that you have to love and to give. When it is totally anchored in inner peace and that feeling of pure joy that allows the awakening that is already you to emerge. That’s the inspiration, that’s the ripple effect. ~ Suzie 27/7/11
This is where I write down my 5 goals each morning and work on my abundance blocks. So I see it and read it daily.
I draw a Heart Whisper card, sometime 3 and ask for guidance on what can I do today that will draw me closer to my vision. I record the cards in my journal and write a message that flows from my heart.
Then I meditate on the guidance from my heart/angels/guides. I ask, not one os my strong points 🙂
Here is a meditation just for you that I recorded live in the Heart Whisper Circle that takes you on a journey to declutter your vision.
I do then write out my goals. More as an intention that states: I am in the process of attracting 4 new ideal clients this month over saying I have 4 new ideal clients this month.
Funny how what I teach my clients I sometimes forgot to do myself. We so often teach and share what we need to learn.
This helps me have clarity and allows me to step up into those big Suzie boots. I have a message to share and leaving it sitting on the shelf will not get my story Lucky to Be Alive written, or fulfil my big dream
You are so beautiful Suzie and I love coming to your blog. It lifts me up and refreshes me each time. Your art and inspiring words always touch me. Today’s in particular was moving for me I am on that journey of complete self-acceptance and self-love.
Thank you for your burst of joy in my mailbox. I give thanks for your posts that always brighten my heart
Suzie, you bring so much sparkle and joy to the world…you are my role model for vibrant living
I did the September Heart Whisper reading where the energy for September is Happiness and the cards for the month Passion, Knowing and Yes. I then did a beautiful meditation to anchor in the energy for September. You can listen here
Then I hit a a few blocks as the day progressed. This was not what I had visioned for my day. By 4pm I was wondering where all my positive vibes had gone? Right out the window!
1. Be content with what you have, rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you. —Lao Tzu
2. Whatever we are waiting for – peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance – it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart. – Sarah Ban Breathnach
3.True abundance isn’t based on our net worth, it’s based on our self-worth.” – Gabrielle Bernstein
7. Your most precious, valued possessions and your greatest powers are invisible and intangible. No one can take them. You, and you alone, can give them. You will receive abundance for your giving. —W. Clement Stone
What is you Favorite Abundance quote?
Share in the comments and I may use them in one of my abundance movies.
I decided last week after being interviewed by Heather Bestel, the founder of The Happiness Garden where I am the guest expert on Law of Attraction and Abundance for the month. Heather has interviewed me and says this :
Suzie has been using the magic of manifesting and principles of Law of Attraction in her own life for many years. Most recently on her amazing healing journey. It’s five years this month that Suzie turned a life threatening illness into her most powerful challenge to date and not only lived to tell the tale, but is now helping others on their own wellness journey.
I witnessed her inspiring recovery and have invited her to share her story with us in this interview.
Members of the Garden are focussing on Abundance this month and I feel honored to have been asked to develop a Law of Attraction workshop just for the Happiness Gardeners as well as to be interviewed and share my story.
I then thought , let’s do Abundance in August here on the blog and in The Heart Whisper Circle. I will share more about this during the week
I then made a video at my abundance place the beach, that I followed with the August Heart Whisper Monthly Reading.
[Tweet ” Embrace your path with love and you will find the gift your heart knows is within.]
The cards that I drew spoke to my heart and I trust they resonate for you too.
Would you like to have more abundance flowing into all areas of your life?
YES! I hear you answer 🙂
I know I am always looking for different ways to allow my life to flow into a bigger river of abundance. When I more abundance flowing I can make a bigger difference to my life and the world. For more years than I remember I have wanted to make the world a better place and now seems more important a time than any for creating more love and peace.
I am also aware how easy it is to block my own abundance and stop the flow, without often being conscious of doing so!
So where do we start. I always start with gratitude and the quotes I first wrote many years ago:
When you start you day in gratitude you then start to be more aware of the abundance you are surrounded with, is what i find works for me.
Recently I noticed that this is not the same for many other people.
Each morning I walk on the beach and I am immediately open to the abundance that I am greeted with:
the rising sun
the color of the water and the sky
the patterns that the cloud make in the sky
the changing patterns of the sand
the white of the waves
and so much more.
As I walk I see people pass me by with their heads down,, their eyes focussed on the square foot of sand that is immediately in front of them. They are not taking in the the beauty of their surroundings. The abundance of nature in all it’s richness. We can all do that in some ways.
We get worried about what we lack, what we don’t have and that takes out attention away from the abundance we already have. That includes just being alive!
7 Uplifting Inspirations to Attract Abundance Now!
So you can tap into your abundance and allow more to flow I have made a movie with a PDF and some other goodies so you can be reminded each day of the abundance you do have and ways to attract more. Here is the link to get it: One subscriber has said:
Here is the reading I have just done for July for you. ( 5 mins) Its a time for reflection at this midway time of the year. Look back on the intentions you set maybe back in January and as are you listening to and following your heart?
I have been asked this question maybe 6 times this week as I shared my card each day in Instagram and Facebook. Then on Wednesday Des came down and took my cards off my desk. He was talking about my business in his mastermind group and shared the cards, people wanted to know where to get them!
Like a lot of creative people I love the process of making things that delight others and me, but sometimes I move onto the next project without doing the selling bit.
I then looked at my website and realised although I have a shop link the cards where are ,there is no prominent link on key pages of my site not in a prominent place, I wasn’t making it easy. I have a mantra
Well that maybe is being fulfilled as I share them but my intention is for people to be having the joy of owning them . So what’s going on? I used to have a very successful handpainted textile business that I built a $80,000 business back in the 1990’s.
Today I drew the Strength card and the message spoke to me loud and clear. It is time to step out from the shadows and dance and share these products that do inspire and uplift and create ripples of change.
The feedback I get from the people who already own their sets of the cards moves me inspires me and confirms my mission to bring more love to the world through inspiring and uplifting.
This message I received last week brought tears to my eyes.
OH MY GOODNESS!!!!! I GOT A PARCEL AND IT’S FROM YOU!!!!!!! Sorry, I couldn’t wait until my birthday I was so excited, so I opened it :))))) Thank you so much for my beautiful card and present.

The Heart Whisper Oracle card reading sets the focus for June. Starting with the Play card that keeps coming up for me. This is both about taking timeout to play and also bringing the love of play into out life and businesses. This can lead to being and feeling and having more abundance and joyin you life.
Then we come to the “fly” card that jumped out of the deck as I started to shuffle. If you look back to the May reading you will see this was the third card in May. This cardit oversees the daily activities reminding us to keep our dreams in front of us, to step uo and shine and share so you too can be the change that creates ripples of change.
Oh, Play is so important! Suzie Cheel and I are both former Early Childhood educators and we know that play is the most important growth work of the growing child! But its vital necessity does not stop with childhood. Sadly, we are educated out of play and think we are “too old to”! It does take a Bold adult to step forth and Play and to once again Flow with this new growth! Thank you so much, Suzie, for this lovely reading!
