river of life

i like to think of my life as a flowing river. all the different currents are my dreams and desires creating my life journey.

the middle currents are faster and free flowing. the currents are the goals and desires that are grounded and centered in your core being.

the currents along the edges are slower having to feel the way and learn while moving along the river. the currents are dreams and desires for experiencing life fully and fulfilling your being.

sometimes there are obstacles, rocks and logs that block the flow of the currents. the obstacles slow the current down and need to be removed or navigated around for the current to continue it’s journey down the river.

what obstacles are in your river? what are you doing to remove them and get around the obstacle?

what does your river look like right now? rivers are constantly moving and changing. the currents are constantly moving and changing.

what are the dreams and desires in the currents of your river? what is the life journey all of your currents are creating in your river of life?

live your truth!

what would your day be like?

how would you feel?

imagine what you want, let your mind explore all that could possibly be.

imagining allows you to clarify what you want.

your desire grows and expands as you dream.

what do you desire?

what are you dreaming about?

live your truth!

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!

love is?

thinking about love and what i want. thinking about what i’ve learned about love is giving and not worrying about getting. love is about the act of loving without expecting anything in return.

what does that look like?

how does that fit in with all that i want to experience and share in relationships?

a desire for a relationship, a choice to be in a relationship, then loving…

is that all there is to love?

sunshine heartis there expectation in choice? or you love yourself first, which would be in the choices you make. positive choices, choices for what you desire and what’s most important to you. the choice, it is two in one to love without expectation. choose to love without expectation. and choose to be in a relationship. and keep choosing, keep choosing to love without expectation and keeping choosing the relationships you want.

then sharing and experiencing love in a relationship. and this part is the act of love without expectation. sharing and experiencing life together in a relationship that you want. don’t expect life and love to come from the relationship, share and experience life and love in the relationship.

if you love yourself first in choosing what you desire and what’s most important to you, then when loving another you will be getting what you want. in the ups and downs and ebbs and flows of life and experiences, you will be sharing and experiencing in relationship. loving yourself is giving to yourself, loving yourself is giving to relationship and loving the other, giving to relationship and loving the other is loving yourself.

i choose my relationships. i give to my relationships and love the other. i am happy and grateful for my relationships! now… now, i am going to practice loving without expectation.

live your truth!

dreams and goals

live your life pursuing your dreams and goals, by your values and beliefs.

“The only person who succeeds is the person who is progressively realizing a worthy ideal. He’s the person who says, “I’m going to become this…” and begins working towards that goal.” ~Earl Nightingale

I want you to live a happy and successful life.

  • what makes you happy?
  • what does success mean to you?
  • what is most important to you?
  • how do you want to live your life?

Have you taken time to think about yourself? Do you know your values? What makes you happy? What do you want to do? What do you want to experience? What do you want to give?

In life, we are responsible for ourselves. You are the only person to make yourself happy.

Live Your Truth!

choice

what choices are you making?

are you choosing what’s most important to you? or are you choosing what’s easiest? or maybe you are choosing instant gratification.

choosing what’s most important to you, being in alignment with your values, your dreams and desires is the best choice to make.

the right choice doesn’t always happen, it isn’t always easy.

i don’t always have the deep burning desire and enthusiasm needed that I make every choice in alignment with who i am and what’s most important to me.

that’s okay, the ups and downs, the ebbs and flows – that’s part of life, part of growth. experiencing a low we are able to be aware of the high, to be aware of what we really want. and feeling the gap of where we are and where we want to go allows for growth.

continual growth is making repeated choices again and again for doing what’s most important to you. if you make a choice not in alignment with that, okay, move on, and your next choice can be in alignment with what’s most important to you.

choose! 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!

I would like to be…

Imagine that you are a child and the whole universe is open and yielding to what you want to be and what you want to do.

What would you like to be? What would you like to do?

Are you doing what your child self wants you to?

If not, why not?

I know that you will have many excuses, I have many excuses. But, let’s put them aside. Let’s kick our limiting beliefs out the door and open to all possibility and all opportunity.

What are your dreams and desires? What do you want to be when you grow up?

Identify what you want. Determine what you need to get you there.

You are never too __________, and there are no obstacles too big.

If you want it, you can be it! You can do it!

What small action can you take today to be who you want to be? and to do what you want to do?

Live Your Truth!

enthusiasm

enthusiasm!

a burning desire to have what you want to have; being who you want to be, doing what you want to do, and experiencing what you want to experience.

enthusiasm!

a high energy being connected to what you want, and what’s most important to you.

enthusiasm!

the image, the vision, in your mind for what you desire.

to keep a fire burning, the fire needs to be fed. to keep enthusiasm, a burning desire for what you want, you feed your mind positive thoughts and images for what you are desiring. you feed your mind positive new ideas and knowledge from books, audios, movies, and people that connect you to what you desire. feed your mind positive stimuli to spark thinking about your desire and building and clarifying your desire in your mind.

keeping your desire in your mind everyday by thinking about, and especially growing it through action is what keeps your desire at the top of your mind and to-do list so the busyness of day-to-day life doesn’t push your desire aside and down your list to-do.

I know that if I’m not keeping my enthusiasm high, then I’m not as involved in being who I want to be, doing what I want to do and experiencing what I want to experience as much as I want to be. Affirmations, imagining and studying keep my desires in my mind and keep me growing and taking actions to live my desires, to create and live the life that I want to live.

what’s most important to you, what’s your burning desire? is what you want in your mind and at the top of your list.

what’s most important to you?

do you feel enthusiastic when you think about your desire? do you feel positive high energy?

live your truth!

 

expectations

what are you expecting?

what you expect is what you allow.

are you expecting what you want? or are you expecting an old result from past experiences or unfulfilled wants? what are some of your natural thinking expectations you have from learned thinking habits?

  • I’m undeserving
  • it takes hard work
  • it takes too much time
  • it takes too much money
  • it’s only for other people, not for me
  • it comes with getting older

these are your paradigms, thoughts and actions that you don’t think about and just do or think, because they are part of your habitual thinking.

I am financially comfortable; my family and I have what we need, we enjoy activities, we enjoy vacations every year, I have some debts I would like to have been able to pay in total rather than monthly, we have just enough money or the right amount of money comes to us right when we need it, to get the things we judge to be most important and what we need the most.

but, I want to be financially free. I want my family and I to enjoy what we want, when we want it, I don’t want to have to plan to save because I don’t have the money for matching dressers in a bedroom, a new computer with more speed, a vacation to some place new, or attending seminars of my favorite mentors.

these are all things that we do now, but they require planning and sacrificing in other areas for us to do the thing we choose.

why?

it’s because I’m not allowing. I have old thought habits that are guiding my expectations, not the thoughts of expecting enjoying my new desires.

these old thought habits are coming from my experiences growing up and thought habits passed to me from the people I was surrounded by growing up.

awareness to old thought habits is going to allow for the change and replacing the old thought habits with the new expectation thoughts of what you really want to experience.

to get your desired expectation, you need to change or replace your paradigm with a new one. affirmations are good to use for giving your mind your desired expectation to think about. visualizing your desired expectation and connecting to it emotionally is good to get your mind thinking about your desired expectation.

are your thoughts for expecting what you desire?
