Take a different view….

There is always a different angle to view each experience! However we tend to find this most difficult when we are going through one that we do not like. Try this the next time it happens to you……….

Pay attention and ‘feel’ the emotions that you are going through so that you can really ‘know’ what it feels like to experience such an event or process. Quickly use your mind to calm yourself down, you can do this many different ways. I like to use plan old logic. I separate myself from the experience and step back from the storm and use what I have learned to relax. “What advise would I give someone else in this same situation?” and then I give myself the same advise. I ‘get over’ it! I then follow with concentrating on a solution and only a solution. I try my best not to look back. You need to cut off your mental connection to this unwanted situation so that you won’t attract more and more thoughts that resemble the unwanted situation and cause negative manifestations! Once you have come up with a plan/solution, take small baby steps if needed, of action to produce the wanted results of this experience. You have now changed your energy path from negative to positive! You are taking charge of your own personal situation and taking your POWER back!

The reason that I asked you to “feel” those feelings in the beginning was for future purpose. Why? Because it is important for us as souls that are here on earth to learn and grow, to be able to have compassion for all others and when we have experienced a specific experience that someone else may be going through, we will then have the TRUE ability to be compassionate! After we have an unwanted experience we need to disconnect/disengage from it emotionally so that we do  not manifest it again. We need to be able to talk with others and have, what is called, a disconnected compassion. That way we can understand what others are experiencing, yet not manifest it (again) for ourselves!

You can now VIEW your negative experience differently. See this experience as a lesson and a gift of learned compassion to possibly be utilized in the future!

Good Luck. Until next time….. (I will try to discuss this disconnect issue more in the next few postings. Positive energy to you all….)

A different way to ‘look’ at it…

I ‘love’ people. Most of the time if you listen to others they will say the opposite. But not me. I ‘love’ people. Good or not so good, people are so interesting to experience experiences with. Therefor, I enjoy all interactions with others because I always “learn” from them. It could be bad and/or “good”, either way, it is always interesting. So….. grow a little today and no matter good or bad (your perception), enjoy your experience!

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……

The not so secret, secret to abundance…

The secret is quite easy, really! Just appreciate what you have today!

What have you appreciated today?

Go ahead, make a list of all the wonderful things and experiences in your life! Having a hard time? Look away for a moment. What do you see going on around you? There is always someone having a more difficult experience in life! Only glance at them long enough to make a quick mental note then switch your mind gears back to yourself. Now… what do you have to appreciate about your own journey? Practice looking at the beauty that is within your world! The better you get at this, the more abundance will follow!

Just walkin’ around…

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…..

What’s with your EGO??

Many people get very confused when it comes to the word ‘ego’. Why is that? Well, mostly because we have turned the ego into something that is bad. And why did we, as the lovely humans that we are, turn it into something that is frowned upon? Because we do that to most everything! So sad….. Any how, the ego is our basic earthly connection. Our beautiful souls had to connect with something once we entered our shells. And that connect is to our egos. Our egos help us to stay grounded while we are here experiencing all the delicious avenues of life! It also likes to argue and play tricks on our source energy connect. How? Well… all those things in life that you spend time judging, like yourself (The whole “I am not good enough”  bit, that’s your ego.) When you judge the actions of another, that is your ego stepping up to the plate to take a swing. When you are making an internal decision that something is right or something is wrong, that’s the ‘ole ego kicking in.

The ego remembers all the past experiences and knows all the future desires and it uses all that information to keep us on our toes! While your source energy is also all-knowing, the source energy knows much more then your ego would ever admit! Your source energy knows the ‘whole’ truth,  the truths that are behind closed doors. And all your true source energy knows, is LOVE! Your sly ego, also knows love, however, it really likes to have fun with you and loves to push out big helpings of self-doubt and your ego really, really enjoys taking the lead. So, one might say it is kind of like the angel and the devil on our little shoulders. But then you say, “well, the ego is ‘bad’ then, right?” Nope! the ego is needed for our earthly experiences. With out the ego we wouldn’t be able to learn and grow. We would not be able to make decisions on whether we want to experience something again or not experience something again. Our egos make life interesting and different.

We came here to experience diversity and to spiritually grow. If we only know love, which is what our internal source energy knows, how are we able to come ‘down’ in order to know that we like to come ‘up’?

What our goals here should be, is to let our source energy be the leader and the ego be the man in the back, the follower!!! And that, my friend, is what we all struggle with! So, the next time something nasty comes to the front of your mind, understand and remember…. it’s that ego of yours and ask it to take a back seat while you pull up your source energy and let it drive!! I will talk more in regards to this and the like, soon. I will also touch on distinct examples in regards to our wonderful ego and how it sometimes takes the lead and how easy it is to spiral down when it does (of course, I will continue with how to also, make it relax so that you can fulfill your grandest desires.) Until, next time…

Part II… of talking.

I wanted to discuss more on how talking about the things that are bothering us only manifests more of those things that are bothering us. However, many of us out there have a strong belief system in place. (These systems were incorporated into our minds long ago either from past lives or our parents or even those people around us that we seem to allow to infuse their own made up beliefs into our thought patterns, and these beliefs are called ‘false premises.’) When we have a strong belief system in place, we tend to, therefore lean toward the belief that there is  a ‘right’ and a ‘wrong’! But really there is only EXPERIENCES and we are not here to judge. Not ourselves, and certainly not others. So, where does that leave us? Well…. that doesn’t leave us anywhere, but LEADS us to or on, a path of choice.

Everyday we have a choice in regards to how we want to perceive any and all situations! If there are no right and wrongs, then we are left with only a decision to be made and that decision is…. “Do I want to keep experiencing this experience or do I want to eliminate this experience from my life path?” Yes, than keep talking about it and love it up with everyone!!! No, than stop right where you are and work on having thoughts that bring the opposite feelings into your body! Talk about a solution to your problem! How can we fix this? What can we do to give ourselves the opposite experience? Do not talk with everyone you know in regards to how bad it is! Talk with everyone you know about how to change it to something positive and wonderful, no matter what ‘it’ may be!

We have to understand that just because someone else lives by a certain belief or rule, it does not mean that it is RIGHT, it just means that it is what they have ‘chosen’ to believe is right. And hey, if there are no right or wrongs, where does that leave them??? It leaves them experiencing what they have chosen to experience in a way that they have chosen to perceive that experience.

It is time to change your belief system, if your belief system is not working for YOU!

Remember….. A belief is just a thought that we keep thinking over and over again, until we make it true.  I will discuss more on this subject next time and I want to go over what an actual EGO is, in the spiritual sense. I hope that this is helping some of you to take charge and change that which you would like to change on your life paths. My heart is with you all, in your endeavours to make positive changes and live the lives that you so desire! Until next time…

From the heart, always,
