Just another ‘great’ to appreciate!

There are so so so many things that we do, are, and experience that we fail to appreciate! I am for sure a glass is half full kinda girl, however even being so, I can find myself in a state of gloom. And I will also find myself in a huge state of irritation when my oldest cheerfully reminds me to “Think positive, mom! Change your energy and be happy so that you can attract happier stuff, mom!” It’s like he is reading my heart which is screaming the very same thing at me. The irritation is not really at him of course, it is at me for feeling negative in the very first place. Also, it then brings me great (and I mean great) relief and joy to realize that he is actually listening to me when I try to teach him how to make his life path a joy filled one! And that is an awesome gift as a parent. Following such far and few between episodes, I relax and cheer up as I do change my mind-set and move on to higher energy fields, and gather, once again, another ‘thing’ to appreciate!

So, today… I appreciate being a parent. Sometimes it is quite exhausting, but moments like above, it is a radiant blessing to watch our little ones grow and blossom into strong individuals. We spend our days in small panics, worrying if they will turn out okay. Will they listen to us when we tell them to not do harmful things to themselves and to be smart and patient??? Who knows. However, I do know that worry only brings on situations that will make me worry, so I choose to think of all the wonderful and amazing experiences that they will have throughout their journeys. I am ever so grateful to be a parent (even those times when my husband and I can not find a babysitter, ha ha.) Teaching is an honor and we as parents are ‘teachers’! Lead by example.

Until next time….. Love and Joy to all……

Almost time to be an adult again!…..almost.

It has been such a nice summer! Drinking, playing with friends, child-like activities spread throughout my weeks….. ahhh….. what a life! Realizing that in just 2 weeks my beautiful children will have to return to their normal fall through spring school activities makes me feel a tad sad. Not “I think I am going to cry” sad, but more of the “wow, I really enjoyed the last few months and it’s time for change” kind of sad. I will miss the relaxed schedules and bare feet. And I will for sure miss being able to say “Sure we can stay up and have another drink, we don’t have to be any where in the morning!” Just like when I was a kid.

So, what makes this summer different then past summers, as an adult? Well, I am pretty sure it has everything to do with embracing my personal power of life control mind-set. Another words, using what I have learned to take control and enjoy my moments no matter what they may be! I have found the secret to happiness! It involves relaxing my mind, body and spirit to a level of LOVE. It involves realizing that I need not take on the worries of others and just go with what feels “good and right” even if it’s just for that moment! Did I let some things GO? yes, I sure did. Like a couple of jobs that were making me feel anxiety. I let go blogging for a few weeks at a time (and NOT feel bad about it), there was also another computer job project that I was trying to do just for the sake of money, it was really stressing me out, so let it go – I did! I switched up priorities to ones that made more sense for me and gave me a feeling of “fun” (and calm stomach!) Therefore my summer has felt more child-like, more FUN! Did a few things get pushed aside like house work or yard work? For sure, however, it’s still there and had I pushed too hard to be all and do all, I wouldn’t be writing this right now. It will all get done (and I didn’t lose any friends over the lack of finished projects either!) The kids will be at school for most of the day soon, and I will feel comfortable completing the unfinished whatever… We don’t have anyone to impress but our selves. And as long as we love and respect our decisions, more impressive situations will occur! Trying to LIVE IN THE MOMENT is the way of a child. It’s a feeling of freedom and joy. It makes your path clearer and your experiences fuller! Live like a child today, you will be happy that you did!!  Best wishes always… until next time….

From the Heart,

Annoyed with being Annoyed?

When we feel annoyed it is our source energies way of telling us that we are experiencing a negative thought. People often push this one under the rug because it happens so very often and with little energy. How many times a day are you truly annoyed? Ten, twenty, a hundred? What is happening is that in that moment we are finding our surrounding environment and the  co-experiencers to be that which we do not want or desire. We want them or it, to change so that we will no longer be annoyed. However, the universal laws do not work that way. We need to find peace inside of us in order to experience a peaceful environment!

Being annoyed is probably one of the most experienced feelings that we humans have. How annoying, right? ha, ha… Well, only you can change that and I have to say, if you want the little annoyances to go away, you will need to recognize when that feeling is erupting from your inner body and catch it quick! Know that your source energy you is trying to warn you that you are closing your desired manifestation door. That is where all of your goodies are hiding and waiting for you to RELAX, so that it all can be delivered to you!

Another words, please just RELAX and understand that each moment is attracted by you and your other co-experiencers, so that you and they, may learn from it. Do you want this experience?

Also, I have really been working on how to handle my own little annoyances with a lighter heart. Let me give you an example: I hate or should I say really do not enjoy… letting my 200 pound American Mastiff in the house when the yard has experienced rain or other moisture. Why? Because I have to wipe his enormous paws! Now he isn’t any real trouble, he just stands there and lets me do it, but for some reason I will put it off as long as possible and then find myself arguing with him and spatting off negative comments the whole time! Does that seem fair to my dog? No. So I have vowed to take a different approach. When he needs to come in, I will force myself (it will not take long before it will become 2nd nature) to think pleasant and loving thoughts about him and understand that he doesn’t enjoy the process either, yet he stands there, patiently, waiting for me to finish and allow him to run through the house, the least I can do is respect him!

This process is also called compassion. I (you) do not have to love what is happening or agree with what is making you annoyed, just have a bit of compassion for each experience and you will find that your vibration will rise and your door will remain (or become) open!! Good Luck and be proud of yourself for all your efforts, each and every day!

Smiles to all,

Shana
