Hmmmm….

I have been so very, very busy lately that I haven’t had time to write as often as I normally like. Ahhh, summer. Children home demanding attention and the house looks like a huge frat party was held all night. Many jobs still to do, however, life is good, filled with energy and emotions and that is what ‘life’ is. That’s why we are here. So, on to the next moment in time……..

Today I wanted to mention how sometimes we forget to DREAM. We get so caught up in the stress of the moment that we simply put off what it is that we ‘want’, for what we are now having. Does this make sense? I know how important it is to live in the time of the now, however if we are doing that in a negative sense, we do not take time for growth. We become stagnant…. and muddy. Our thoughts are not clear and therefore we do not get any clear results. So where is the balance of not giving up on the things (dreams) that we want to accomplish (with family, friends and materials) and living in the moment? Because we need to live in the moment to appreciate what we have given ourselves so far and still see movement and growth for our future experiences.

We have to be careful to really expect what ever it is that we ‘want’ and not just want and hope for it from a place that says “I don’t have it but I really want it” because when we do this, it keeps it away from us. When we want something so very intensely and feel the feelings of ‘lack’, we end up just creating that same image out there to the universe – the feelings of ‘lack’. If we want something, whether it is a relationship or material item, we have to look forward to it and admire those around us whom already have it. (Oh, the green-eyed monster is the worse!! I will talk about that in my next post.)

Okay, so balance is key, as usual. Keep your dreams close and refresh them regularly, but at the same time enjoy your ‘now’ moments with gratitude and love. Keep intentions clear and positive with high energy and before you know it, YOUR DREAMS ‘ARE’ YOUR ‘NOW’ MOMENTS, ALL THE TIME! Until next time…

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…..

A day in the life of a deliberate creater…

Hhmmm…. What to say…. being a writer, it is always great when your mind goes blank (when you want to write something) but it practically screams when I need to meditate – go figure.

Well, I wanted to start writing yesterday, however due to the fact that it was the first day that I had made the decision to change my blog up( for the time being, ) I totally sabatogged myself! All day long I kept thinking of things that I wanted to write about in my posting at the end of the day. So, I kind of missed out on a lot of moments to actually write about in regards to the law of attraction. I did however, in the midst of getting my 3 wonderful yet hurried children ready for school (7am), run up the stairs and pull my muscle in my left calf! And knew right away that my body/soul connect was yelling at me “Slow Down, Woman!” Therefore, after I got all my children off to school, I cancelled my fitness classes and rested for the day. I happily made some new friends on wordpress and enjoyed the sounds from my new alarm clock, it’s one of those that makes ocean sounds and other like sounds (highly suggest getting one!) Anyway, my day was kind of ‘flat’ so nothing exciting happened, and my leg feels a little bit better today (I was able to teach my hip-hop class, yah.) That brings me to today. It started out normal and okay, but I had a feeling of mute sadness around and through me, so I had to do a lot of positive personal coaching, moment by moment. I hate when I have to do this because it is quite exhausting, but I know in the long run it is worth it. It got me through the day, which was a good thing because, while nothing major happened in my personal reality, I watched it happen to others, left and right! One of them happened to my boss who found out that her man is and has been, cheating on her with what seems to be, more than one girl. He was not being very smart and left his phone in her room (not a good idea if you have pretty pictures of half naked women on it and messages that are obscene – hopefully he learns something tonight when she bashes the hell out of him..) I was the first one on the scene of the “Oh my god he’s cheating on me and I can’t breath right now..” She was all red and so hurt and pissed and every other fair emotion that I would only imagine would run through the body of such an experience. And I wanted with every fiber of my being to sit her down and give her sound advise and help coach her through this horrible experience, but…… I could only tell her how sorry I was and give that face of compassion. I know that she has to live ‘it’ herself because she’s the one who attracted this and it is quite a soul lesson for her (I had to keep closing my lips and silently tell myself to let that need to help her, go.) She needs to learn how to detach and love herself (there is so much self pity, hate, & guilt) and there was nothing I could do to help her learn her lesson, other than hold her hand and wish her peace. We will have to see tomorrow if she did indeed have the cops show up – that’s what she said, not me! I will let you know the outcome.

So, then I had to think of all the wonderful things that I am grateful for and I of course called my husband to tell him how much I love him. I always do that when I hear/see bad relationship stories. My husband and I are on the same page (or at least in the same chapter.) Unfortunetly, he was also having a similar experience in regards to being stabbed in the back by a few friends or should I say former friends. I also had to pull the compassion card and let him ride it out. That was my journey for the day – “helping people by not helping them!” It has made me a stronger person to let go and let others live out what they need to, although I can help those who ‘ask’ for help, because that is when help is needed and useful. Today I was not asked but did the best I could to silently give love to those in need and do my best to lead by peaceful example, (but, boy was it hard especially when someone you love is hurting and spouting out about how they want revenge – a lot of that going on – and you ‘know’ that it is only going to hurt ‘them’ and bite them back sooner or later, but again it’s their journeys, I am just here with them to ‘co’ experience.) My love to all of you out there today having experiences like these….

Until next time (and I am sure I will slowly have more deliberate creative experiences to write about as soon as I stop thinking about writing about them, ha, ha, ha…) Smiles and positive vibrations to you all…

From the heart,

Affirmation pick of the day! -Work-

“My workplace is a peace-filled zone that brings me great fulfillment.”


*What is an affirmation? It is a self-loving, self-strengthening, purposeful life-improving quote that one needs to say and repeat throughout the day(s) to lead them to manifest their grandest and sometimes, simplest divine desires. Use this affirmation and the ones to follow in the future, to help you get or stay connected to your divine source. By saying and repeating these quotes, your mind will connect with the words and then the words will connect with your heart and the positive energy (words are also energy) will then become your beautiful reality!
