Welcome to the Unlimited Newsletter...
You never know what each day will bring. Last month on my birthday, my sister-in-law went into labour - 3 weeks early!
My beautiful baby niece, Samantha, was born on my birthday. An unexpected, and amazing gift!
I love how most days start out the same, but we never know what surprises each day will have in store for us. I believe we indirectly have the power to open ourselves up to the 'magic' of the world when we can shift our energy to be more positive. What we put out, comes back to us.
This month in the Unlimited Newsletter, I discuss how we can impact our energy. Most of us go through the day and rarely think of the energy we put out into the world. But when we are aware of this factor, we can shift in big ways!
Enjoy the ride!

What Energy Are You Putting Out Into The World?
Most people give very little thought to the energy they project into the world. Yet, this energy has the power to motivate and inspire others or it can hurt and disappoint those around you. We are constantly putting our vibes out there. If you don't believe me, try this simple exercise. Greet someone with positive energy. Smile at them and give them your full attention. Show them you care. Now, watch their response. How does this differ from the response you receive from people when you speak to them in a hurried, serious manner?
I recently had an A-ha moment about my energy that took place while I was sitting in a lawn chair at the sidelines of a soccer field, watching my 5-year old. I was sitting a few feet away from another parent beside me, legs crossed and very focused, serious face with clenched jaw muscles, watching my girl. It struck me in that moment that if you were to have taken the Carey-Ann from 10 years ago and transplanted her here beside me, the energy would have been very different. I would have been more open, talkative and energetic. My facial expressions would have been more animated and happy. My body language would have definitely been more relaxed. But, what happens over time is that our energy becomes a product of our life's experiences. Read more
