i and myself

who is “i”? who is “myself”?

i was listening the other day and had some awareness to the pieces of me.

have you ever said to yourself, “i was listening to myself”, “i saw myself”, “i thought to myself” or “i found myself.”

i had never wondered who the “i” of me is, and who the “myself” of me is. i started thinking about the pieces of me differently. i am me, and i like to connect to my inner being. is the myself of me my inner being, and the i of me my thinking mind?

what is the difference between my inner being and my thinking mind?

my inner being is a deep wisdom, truth, energy, source. my inner being knows, believes and trusts. my inner being is calm, serene, positive, and love.

my thinking mind is random thoughts generated from past experience, the now moment, and the future that i want to create. my thinking mind can be positive, negative and everything in between. my thinking mind imagines and wonders “what if”. my thinking mind can get carried away about what isn’t true and become anxious.

having two pieces of me, which me am i the most of? which me do i want to be the most of?

if i am being the “i” of me in my thinking mind, i easily get lost in the daily routines and expectations and live life like a roller coaster.

if i am being the “myself”  of me in my inner being, i am connected to my deepest and truest part of me and live life like i’m flowing with the river.

what part of you are you the most of?

live your truth!

 

rejuvenate your energy

i needed some time away. i was being run by this commitment and this activity, responsibility after responsibility seemed to have a hold of my life and i didn’t have time for myself.

everything that i was doing, everything that seemed to have taken over my life are all things that i have chosen, they are (maybe not as much as when i first began) important to me. but, all of them combined overtook my life that i wasn’t living life, life was living me.

my energy was draining and i wasn’t able to give myself what i needed to keep my energy where i needed it to be and where i wanted it to be. i wasn’t doing activities that were for me; my body, mind and spirit. i wasn’t giving what i wanted to give to what i was doing. i needed to give me myself and rejuvenate my energy.

i needed to get away so that i could re-connect to myself. get in touch with what i want, and what’s important to me. and then to sit still and let my mind quiet.

one day. one day to connect to myself, quiet my mind, slow down, and let the sounds of nature rejuvenate my energy. let nature surround me with the flow of life. energy flowing back into my life. excitement and enthusiasm for the life i want to create flowing in my thoughts again.

i love and enjoy as much time as possible to give to myself in this way and many other smaller and bigger ways. it’s amazing what we can give to ourselves and do for our wellbeing in a small amount of time.

we all need to care for and love ourselves. we need to be able to rejuvenate and keep our energy high. when we care for ourselves, we give to ourselves, and we give to others in our lives fully.

how do you give to yourself? what keeps your energy high? how do you rejuvenate?

take time and give to yourself. give to yourself in the small ways and give to yourself in the big ways. if you need to take time away because you have given and taken too much energy from yourself, do that. you will return with energy, excitement and enthusiasm to live and create life, being a part of all that you choose with happiness and gratitude.

rejuvenate your energy!

live your truth!

time for myself

how do you prioritize yourself? are you doing that?

i’m reclaiming myself for myself. not that i don’t want to be giving to others and doing for others, that is something important to me. but my choices have led me to a time right now that i’ve filled my days with tasks and responsibilities that are pushing aside the relaxing and restoring things that i do for me. my energy is low and my enthusiasm is low. i’ve become disconnected from myself.

so, i’m reclaiming me, and it’s not as easy as it would seem. all the choices i have been making that have filled my days are important things to me, but they are draining me right now instead of filling me. i need to add more to my day that is filling me up, giving me positive energy. and then the positive energy can be given, given and shared with others.

i am reconnecting with myself. listening to my body. connecting to my dreams and desires with visualizing. getting myself out in nature.

what have you been giving to yourself? do you need to reclaim any part of yourself and give time back to you? time to relax and restore? what fills you up? what gives you energy?

 

 

 

present

where am i? and where do i want to go?

there are many wants i have. many dreams and desires. i have many desires achieved now that i am living and experiencing. i have desires that are growing and expanding. i have dreams and desires that are experienced in little ways, and wanted in big ways. i have dreams and desires creating the vision of the life that i want to live.

in all these wants of mine, the biggest desire now is to be present. be present for myself, be present for those i am sharing the moment with.

i want to be aware of the experience, enjoying the experience. i want to be connected to my inner being and connected to who i may be with. i want to be me, free of masks. i want to enjoy others for their being, no expectations and no judging, connecting to their being.

present. being. connected. life. love.

where am i? present!

where am i going? being present in the next moment!

live your truth!

create your life

how much of life do i and should i base off of my feelings? and thoughts? what should i listen to when i am making choices for the moment and the life that i want to live?

trust my instincts, my intuition, and let my inner being guide me.

go to my center and connect to myself where I am whole and complete. from this space, this is the space that i can trust. this is the space in me that knows what i want. it is this space that doesn’t judge and doesn’t expect.

from this inner being space i am guided to live the life that i want to live. a life of happiness and wellbeing. a life of my own journey and adventures. a life of fulfillment.

how do i know i am connected to my center, my inner being and not listening to my feelings and thoughts, but being guided by my true inner being?

i feel a calm, loving, positive energy when i am connected to my center, my inner being. being connected to my center i am free from overwhelm and stress. connected to my center i am free from judging and free from expecting.

connected to my center i trust myself that i am guiding myself to creating and experiencing the life that i want. from my center i feel love in all that i do, i feel love in the ebbs and flows that are my experiences of my life journey.

mid-life what?

my mind was wandering around what it is that i want to experience in life. i’m ready for a big change, something more, something more fulfilling, something purpose filled.

a mid-life transformation. i would call these questions and the changes that i want to make a mid-life transformation. or maybe with how fast our world changes today, i can label it a transformation, clean and simple.

transformation, a time that you really connect to who you are and live your truth being who you want to be, doing what you want to do and experiencing what you want to experience.

  • who do you want to be?
  • what do you want to do?
  • what do you want to experience?

a time when you are digging deep and connecting to your inner most dreams and desires. a time that you find your purpose and passion for living your life.

a time of finding what your internal compass is. what are you values? what’s most important to you? do you let your values and what’s most important to you guide you?

what experiences do you want to have?

why do you want to have that experience?

how do you want to feel in that experience?

is that what you are living?

is that what you are choosing?

life changes. life changes slow, life changes fast. have you changed with life? are you doing what you want to do and experience? are you living your truth?

what do you want?

what are you most wanting right now?

what are you doing to have that experience in your life?

who do you need to be to have what you want?

what actions do you need to take to be ready for what you want?

wants are good in our life. when we have a want with desire we are likely to achieve experiencing the want in our lives.

wanting is different than feeling lack. wanting is connecting to our desire and feeling how we want to feel having attained it.

lack is feeling let down, anxious, stressed or overwhelmed.

wanting is feeling calm, creative, grateful, happy and love to experience what you want soon.

wants can be big or small. it does not matter the size, it matters how you connect to your want and what you are feeling.

when you feel positive; love, joy and gratitude you will have what you want before you realize that you have it.

what do you most want right now? how will you feel having that want fulfilled?

live your truth!

laughter

i am so happy and grateful i tripped on my skirt.

crazy, maybe.

tripping on my skirt allowed me to share a moment of laughter with a total stranger, but more importantly with myself. it was laughter that was needed in my life at that moment.

i was not in a high energy mood, i wasn’t in a positive mood. and that small amount of laughter, and a smile exchanged with a total stranger was all that i needed to start feeling the positive and to start connecting to the high energy and live my day with enthusiasm and excitement.

thank you universe for giving me the laughter and the smile i needed right then to get my day flowing in the positive again!

what moments, not usually thought in the positive, are you grateful for?

live your truth!

connected

we are all connected. we are connected to the universe, the whole. we are connected to our inner being, our higher power, our spirit. we are connected to nature. we are connected to all that is.

what do you feel connected to?

do you feel connected to the universe? to all that is?

do you feel connected to your inner being? your higher self? your spirit?

do you feel connected to nature?

do you feel connected to others?

pexels-photo.jpg

what do you do to connect?

out in nature i feel connected to the whole, to the universe, to all that is.

through journaling and meditation i am able to feel connected to my inner being, my higher self, my spirit. quieting my mind i am able to connect to my inner being.

when i’m connected i feel positive high energy. i feel abundance. i feel love, i feel joy. i feel energy enthusiasm and excitement. i feel gratitude. i feel love flowing through me and to me.

how do you feel when connected to your inner being? how do you feel when connected to nature? how do you feel when connected to the universe, to all that is?

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.

sunrise

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!
