What are you thinking about, when you’re just walking around, throughout your day? Say it’s a Sunday and you get to be home from your normal days of rushing around, working, what will you do? Hmmm, it’s been a while since you had a moment to do nothing and everything at the same time. And then there it goes, suddenly. Your imagination, your ramped thoughts go forward and backwards, double time. Where are they going? Are you even paying attention? Are you following your thoughts or are your thoughts following you? What’s the difference? Well, the difference is, that when we are following our thoughts that means we are letting them lead our path and when our thoughts are following us, that means ‘we’ are leading them.
How is your path looking? How are you feeling? Pay attention to your mood. Are you fussing and worrying about all the things that need to be done? Do you feel a sense of anxiety? Are you wandering around your home looking at all the things that you wish to change? Finding yourself annoyed with your co-experiencers or other surroundings? If any of this rings true, you are ‘not’ leading your thoughts! Stop, and take a breath. Re-focus your intentions. What is it that you actually want? Change your perception of your current situation to one that makes you feel good and APPRECIATE what you are finding in front of you! Yes, this takes some work and it may seem like more work than the opposite of just aimlessly running around in a negative cloud, seeing the down side of everything, but you will not change a single thing to positive if you continue to do this! Work your mind a little, pretend it is just a game, a game that you really want to win and win big! So, pay attention and start taking the lead, now, while you are living! I found myself fretting at the beginning of my Sunday and it took me a while to realize what I was doing, by how I was feeling. I was looking at myself and my surrounding s in a negative light, and I pinched that thought off and decided to start with a major search on all the things that I was taking for granted and concentrate on ways to appreciate those things and then it snowballed to more things and people and experiences to feel positive about. Suddenly life was not overwhelming and the things that were so annoying a minute ago, were not so important to zone my attention in on. It took a little work, yes, but I want to have a life that is full of as many positive and loving experiences as I can make possible, so… my life is good and a little work goes a loooonnnggg way! Until next time, best wishes and positive energy to you…..
Well, we all know how I like to keep things simple. Simplicity makes our minds run clearer and therefore we can prioritize our beloved desires with greater strength and intent. I wanted to remind ourselves about how our words affect our outcomes in life experiences. Sometimes we get carried away with negative wording in our discussions with others or even just ourselves. Each word is made up of energy and that energy is set lose to latch on to our beings and change our molecular structure. So the next time the horrible negative word slips right out of your, I am sure, well intended mind… catch it! Catch it and replace it with a word or words that will leave an intelligent and positive energetic mark on ourselves and those around us (or even those that are not physically around us – if the words were intended or about that person.) This practice is very important if you are looking to change your reality to something desired and positive. Words change everything, so change your words if you need to. And do not be afraid to apologize to your loved ones and any others around you when you loose control of your tongue, because we can reverse those negative shaped molecules to positive ones with a kind and loving filled apology, and it also teaches those around us how to take control and be empowered, therefore creating a wonderful atmosphere for all! Good luck and positive energy to all…. Until next time…
When you are driving down the road and you see a small muddy turtle slowly crossing the bumpy and quite long gravel road. In your mind you wonder, does he even know that in a matter of moments a huge alien vehicle will come zooming by, completely unaware of his little body swaying leg by leg toward the pond on the other side and well.. you know the completion of this sentence. Living in the country, this scenario happens all the time, so my children and I have made it a mission to try to save every turtle that we can from such destruction. Why? Because that is just what you do when you have a car full of small children and have witnessed the enlightened joy in their souls after such an event! So, we stop, my oldest jumps out (after mommy had deemed it safe), runs to the little (or sometimes big) sweet creature and lifts it to safety, just in time I might add because it never fails that a car or two has had to stop and also witness this beautiful, yet simple display of child-like love and appreciation for life. After he jumps back in the car, all of the kids full of excitement and new positive energy, we talk about it for a moment or two and off we go to our original destination!
This is one of life’s awesome little moments that was created to be appreciated and therefore raise our vibrations to a higher level. Do not forget to keep your eyes and hearts open for such experiences in your daily lives! Until next time…..
Can you believe that I just made myself feel guilty about something that hadn’t even happened yet, or that may even happen? I just made a whole scenario up in my mind that left me with a feeling of guilt. The experience never actually happened at least not yet, but I already made it up and it left me feeling guilty. I find that simply amazing. I totally just judged myself in the worst way. There is absolutely no reason that I should be feeling this way. How funny is that? We do it all the time. Worry about something that we made up in our heads. Something that we are assuming. It is a total feeling of powerlessness. And all we need to do is change our mind-set. Change it to believe that we need not feel those feelings, that situation is not even happening, I can’t make it any more simple, that which is going on your head, is not really happening, you made it up! so why not just change your mind-set and think of something ‘good’? Hello……. This is what I say to myself when I catch myself doing this. Funny huh? Just a little something to chew on and think about.. Have a great night. Until next time……
I have a homework assignment for all of you today!
And it goes something like this…….
Find one person in your memory bank that when you think of that person it brings you a feeling of anger, annoyance, sadness, helplessness, guilt, or makes you want to just plain blow chunks (lol), and as this individual’s image materializes in you mind, FORGIVE THEM! Forgive them for what ever experience they made in their lives that had such an impact on YOU. And then I want you to take a big deep breath and FORGIVE YOURSELF. Forgive yourself for allowing another to enter your energy field and leave those negative vibrations attached to your being. After you have verbally and mentally spoken the words of forgiveness, allowing a feeling of release to overcome you, say the next few words over and over again until you are exhausted…….. “I love you and I love myself”
This is a wonderful exercise to utilize whenever you are feeling down and congested. Have a wonderful and positive day! Until next time…
When you are scurrying around, your insides filled with anxiety, your mind filled with pictures and moments that involve another, and while the wheels are turning and your body is reacting, you suddenly stop. You stop and actually realize that you are allowing your self to follow each thought filled lead to another matching thought and another, and you have put yourself in a state of worry-filled emotions over something that doesn’t even involve you. You understand that you are letting your ego lead you, lead you to actually worry about what another person is going to think or may be thinking at that very moment and because you know that we make up in our minds what another may be feeling or thinking (because we do NOT know), you suddenly just STOP. You release your imaginary hook that another has put on you and take a big fresh gulp of air, a smile rounds your beautiful face, your anxiety falls away, you look around at what it is that you are doing and start to pay attention to your surroundings, grounding yourself in the moment. You feel an intoxicating sense of self-love.
When you take an extremely hot shower, the steam filling the air all around you, your body in a warm meditative state, as your blood pressure drops and your body gets heavy, the moment arises to make a choice to continue this grand self indulging experience or stop it before you pass out from the marvelous heat, when just out of no where, the curtain peels open slightly and allows a wonderful, cooling breeze to enter, gently flowing across your glistening face, relieving you of any discomfort. You take a deep, refreshing breath in and enjoy the magnificent Yin and Yang of cool air and hot water.
Ahhh…… now that’s really awesome.
Enjoy your moment and take time to notice all your blessings.
