letting go

at times i just need to let it all out, all the negativity i’m thinking and feeling so that i can get to a place of feeling gratitude. letting all the negativity out, let it pour out if me in what form it needs, so that i can get it out of me. to free my mind, to free my heart. and to open to gratitude, to open to love, to allow all that i want to come to me.

sometimes i think that i suppress the negativity and hold it in, rather than feel it and let it go. and letting it go is what needs to be done in order to allow the good in. to allow love and abundance in. to grow and expand and become who i want to be, to do what i want to do, to experience what i want to experience.

is there something that you’ve been holding onto that you need to let go? is there something that you want that you don’t have? is there something you need to let go to allow that?

let it go, live your truth!

 

imagination

with your imagination, you can build the picture of what you want. you can create the vision for the life that you want to live. with your imagination, you can clarify who you want to be, what you want to do and what you want to experience.

imagination activates your power. the power you have within yourself to create the life that you want to live. Napoleon Hill wrote, “… imagination is the most marvelous, miraculous, inconceivably powerful force the world has ever known.”

with your imagination you can imagine all the infinite possibilities that exist for your experiences and life journey. Wayne Dyer said, “An infinite of forests lies dormant within the dreams of one acorn.”

what is inside of you? have you dreamed and imagined the life that you want to live? there is so much that you can be and do.

live your truth!

feeling habits

have you ever noticed certain feelings you have when you are doing certain activities. feelings that you have for a certain thing that you do. you can be feeling a different polar feeling, then you begin this or that activity and it triggers your feelings to shift and you don’t quite know why. are your feelings a habit for this activity?

I realized some of my feelings for some activities were habits. I had been feeling a positive energy and began a new activity and my energy changed. I didn’t want it to change, I didn’t expect it to change, but there I was feeling blah and not the positive energy I had been feeling earlier. why? the activity that I was doing wasn’t a blah activity.

I decided that I can choose to be happy and positive energy.  I’m not sure where this blah feeling came from but I was willing and ready to kick it back out the way it had come and be back to feeling positive energy.

what other feelings are feeling habits that I have? I am happy and grateful to be aware of this. I am happy and grateful to choose feeling happy and positive energy.

what feeling habits do you have? choose happy, choose to feel positive energy.

live your truth!

connected

who are you connected to? what are you connected to?

I like to be connected to myself. I like to be connected to my inner being, and being connected to my inner wisdom. I like to be aware of what I want and what is most important to me.

I like to be connected to those I love and are most important to me. I like to share and experience life with them. I like to enjoy deep rich conversations and new experiences with those I love.

I like to be connected to nature. I like to feel the flow of the water, I like to feel Earth’s energy flow up through me from the ground. I like to enjoy the awe and wonder of all the beauty that nature is.

I like to be connected to the Universe God. I like to be connected to all that is. I like to feel love, joy, gratitude, abundance and freedom!

I like to be connected to others. I like to learn, grow and expand from others. I like to empower and encourage others to live their truth. I like to be curious and connect with many unique people and see their authentic beauty in their being and doing.

what are you connected to in this moment? who are you connected to in this moment?

live your truth!

eager

I’m an eternally expanding Being, and I’m doing great where I am, and I’m so eager about what’s coming!

I am always becoming, I am always creating. Today I am more than I was yesterday, tomorrow I am more than I am today. I am a person that enjoys becoming more and doing more. I enjoy being who I want to be and I enjoy doing what I want to do.

There are many moments that I forget I’m connected to my inner being and I forget this. When I have forgotten I am not living in present moment awareness, I am not connected to what is most important to me. I am not feeling love and gratitude.

Then I remember – I’m pulled back into the moment and reconnected with my inner being, I become re-aware that I’m doing great where I am. I feel the love and gratitude for who I was, who I am, and who I’m becoming.

I realize the person I’ve grown into, being who I want to be, doing what I want to do and experiencing what I want to experience. I am happy and grateful for the expansion of my being and my life.

I am happy and grateful for who I am now in the moment, and I am happy, grateful and excited for who I yet want to become, what I want to do and what I want to experience. I am eager to experience all of life’s moments!

In what ways have you grown and expanded?

Are You happy and grateful for your now moments?

What are you eager for?

judging to gratitude

I realized that I am judging myself throughout the day with many small, automatic, subconscious thoughts.

Thoughts about my routine daily behaviors and actions. My random thoughts that are more limiting than allowing. Thoughts that are so normal to me that I don’t usually take notice of them.

dsc05857

I am happy and grateful to be aware of these thoughts.

I can change these thoughts to gratitude when I realize them. I am happy that I have realized I am having these judging thoughts so that I can  change them.

Judging thoughts are limiting. If the thought is from learned responses that are negative or negative self talk, the thoughts are limiting you having what you want.

Are you aware of your random thoughts as you go through the routine of your day?

Are any of your thoughts negative and judging?

What thoughts do you want to change from judging to gratitude?

Live Your Truth!

enjoy the journey

do you ever get caught up in want, want want?

i know that i do. i want to be more, i want to do more, i want to experience more.

it is good to want. wanting to be more, wanting bigger, wanting more leads to growth and expansion. growth and expansion to be more and experience more of what you want is good.

i get too focused on wanting sometimes, and forget to celebrate. i get so caught up in the wanting that i don’t see where i am. i am not living in the present moment. i am not enjoying the journey.

DSCN3604

it is good to be aware of where you currently are now, in the now moment. who are you being that you were not a year ago? what are doing that you were not doing a month ago? what are you experiencing that you were not experiencing last week?

celebrate where you are now! you are more than you were yesterday, last week, last month and last year. we get focused on our new want, want, want that we forget where we started from, how we have grown and expanded. when we connect the growth, we become aware of who we are in the NOW moment. we are able to enjoy our journey and not get lost in the want, want, want. celebrate your growth and expansion. celebrate who you are and who you want to be.

“We are always becoming, we are always creating. Today I am more that I was yesterday and tomorrow I am more than I am today.”

allow your want, want, want to enjoy growth and expansion. celebrate your growth feeling joy, gratitude and love in the NOW moment and enjoy your journey!

live your truth!

 

 

going around in circles

Values are the foundation for living happy successful lives.

You deserve happiness, abundance and health. The key to your happiness is you. When you know your values, and live your life by your values, you are a happier and healthier person. Often people live their lives without knowing their values and they make decisions based on other people’s expectations. When people make decisions this way they aren’t living the life they are meant to live! They are unhappy and live a life of lack, of wanting more in one or more areas of their lives.

I used to live my life without knowing my values. I wasn’t living my truth. I wasn’t being the me that I wanted to be, I wasn’t doing what I wanted to do, and I wasn’t living how I wanted to live.

Have you ever been in a canoe on a windy day, and paddling just didn’t seem to get you anywhere? I’ve been in a canoe on a windy day, and my paddling wasn’t getting me anywhere. The canoe would go this way and that way. I was facing the wrong direction. I tried to correct my direction by turning the canoe. I was going in a new direction but it still wasn’t the direction that I wanted to go. I was going around in circles and not getting anywhere.

This is how my life felt when I wasn’t living by my values. I made decisions based on what was expected of me, or what I thought was expected of me. I didn’t have my values clearly defined and written down. I didn’t have significant goals for myself in all areas of my life.

It was like the canoe going in all different directions but the direction that I wanted it to. I was going around in circles in my life.

When I was in the canoe on that windy day, it was a challenge for me to get the canoe going in the right direction without making some major changes. I had to trim the canoe, to find a better balance from where to paddle. I turned myself around in the canoe so that I paddled backward to move forward. After struggling, I found my balance and was able to move in the direction that I wanted to more easily and steadily.

My balance was off in my life as well. I was unhappy and unhealthy.

I gradually realized that I wasn’t living by my values, and what my values meant to me. I read a book, ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People’ by Stephen Covey. I clarified my values, I wrote my values down along with what the value meant to me. I set significant goals in all areas of my life.

I found my balance and started growing in the direction that I wanted to go. I started being who I wanted to be, doing what I wanted to do and living how I wanted to live!

I took responsibility for my life. I am happy and harmonious with my mind at peace with my heart.

Values are a belief that is meaningful to you. Values are priorities that tell you how to spend your time, right here, right now. Stephen Covey says, “(values) are the source of our passions in life, and they help us determine where we focus our energies.”

When you know your values and what they mean to you; creating goals and making decisions are easier. Your values are your guidance system.

And like finding the balance in a canoe on a windy day, knowing your values is like finding your balance for your life. You choose to live by your values, and living by your values creates your happy and harmonious life.

Live Your Truth!

what do you really want?

have you ever been frustrated because a situation was not going how you want it to go?

you know, you are with a group of people, and it’s just not going the way that you want it to go. i mean, everybody should know that it’s supposed to happen exactly in this one way, your way. how could there be any other way than the way that you want it? and your just getting annoyed and frustrated because it’s not what you want. people aren’t acting according to what you want!

i have these moments. oh boy, i can get so frustrated that my body is tight and tense and i just want to scream and make it happen my way, and there just isn’t any way for me to do that!

DSC04299

I have learned, by some wonderful grace, to step back and look at the bigger picture. i will ask myself, “what do i really want?”

i am able to realize that the situation that i am trying to control is a small piece of the whole adventure of life, and although it may be something that should get done, in the whole picture of life – it’s not what’s most important!

my shoulders relax, my breathe deepens, and i am open to gratitude! i become grateful for this moment, in this moment i am connected to what i want, and what i want is to enjoy my life journey filled with amazing deep rich relationships. and that is what’s happening!

what do you really want?

live your truth!

good failure

i am determined to learn and grow from my failures.

failure if you allow it is a teacher. a stepping stone along your journey.

failure if you allow it gives new energy and enthusiasm to create what you want. it gives renewed determination and a burning desire to succeed!

I will be using my recent failures to build a stronger foundation.

what have you recently failed at?

what are you scared of doing because you don’t want to fail?

img104

experiencing life fully means taking risk. stepping out of your comfort zone and allowing yourself the opportunity to fail.

failures are a good teacher. failures are a good motivator. without failure, life journeys would not be as exciting.

take the risk! failing is not failing, failing is an exciting step of growth along your journey!

live your truth!
