stop your thoughts

what are your dominant thoughts throughout the day?

are your thoughts positive for what you want, grateful for the now moment, or negative?

when your thoughts are negative – feeling the lack of what you want, wandering aimlessly about things that are not true and will not happen, angry or overwhelmed – what do you do to stop your thoughts?

do you think about what you do want?

do you think about what you can be grateful for in the now moment?

do you journal, go for a walk, meditate?

do you say out loud “stop!” to interrupt the thought and pick a new one?

when you realize that your thoughts are negative, choose one of the above to stop those thoughts and focus on something positive.

what will you practice this week?

a simple life

i’d like to live a simple life. but i make life not simple.

there are many wants that i want and it’s a challenge for me to find the balance between healthy wanting and lacking wanting. lacking want leads me to feeling overwhelmed.

when i think of simple it’s not really a simple life that i want.

what i really want is to experience and feel all those things that are important to me.

the question is then, what is important to me?

the next question, am i doing what’s important to me?

someday’s yes, someday’s no.

on someday’s no, i ask myself, what’s important to me? what do i want?

and then, my life goes back to being a little simpler. not because it’s a simpler life, because it’s the life that i want to live. and living the life that i want to live is being connected to me.

being connected to me, that feels good, positive, simple – even when it’s not. that is the energy of being connected.

what’s important to you?

what do you want?

are you doing what’s important to you?

are you connected to you?

live your truth!

intuition

something that i want to develop more is my intuition.

recognizing my intuition and listening to it, following it.

how does intuition show up in your life?

in my life it’s the little nudges, i should grab … i should call… i might want this…

when do you listen to your intuition? when don’t you listen to your intuition?

on this journey of expanding my awareness to intuition one of the triggers that is sometimes true for me when i’m not listening to my intuition is that i’m choosing a “should” instead of a “want”.

i’ve noticed that when i’ve chosen not to follow my intuition i was second guessing myself, pushing myself to do something that didn’t feel comfortable.

how does it feel when you are listening to your intuition? and when you’re not?

i felt anxious, like i had done something wrong and had to defend my decision when i didn’t listen to my intuition.

when i listen to my intuition i feel positively challenged, and that i was flowing with the river of life and connected to my inner being.

what does your intuition tell you?

live your truth!

life is easy

life is easy.

life is easy? can it be? life is filled with challenges and obstacles. life is filled with wants, and more wants. i’m sure that you can give me a list of wants that you have right now, and you can tell me how they all seem to be just out of your grasp.

wants out of your grasp create feelings of overwhelm as you think about the lack of what you want, giving you stress, anxiety and fear.

how much do you truly want this want? how often do you think of this want? are your thoughts positive or negative? yes, there is a difference in wants. you have positive feeling wants and you have negative feeling wants.

a negative feeling want, can be a positive feeling want. if you are thinking about the want and feeling the lack of it, it is a negative feeling want, you are doing more to push the want away than to bring it closer to you.

when you are feeling negatively towards your wants you see all the challenges and obstacles. you see these as blocks and allow them to slow you down or to stop you in the pursuit of your want.

a positive feeling want is a want that you think about with positive desire, feeling happy and grateful that you choose to create the want in your life. feeling connected, high energy, enthusiasm and excitement for how you will feel when you have this want.

when you are connected to your wants positively, life is easy. when you are thinking positively about your wants you open yourself to opportunities to create what you want. energy is flowing to you and through you. you are inspired to take action.

i imagine that you can look back at the wants that you have had in your life and tell me about some that were negative feeling and took a long time to get the want. i also imagine that you can tell me about positive feeling wants you now enjoy that came to you easily.

what do you want now? is it a negative feeling want or a positive feeling want?

choose to think positively about what you want. connect to how you will feel living with this want and let the positive feelings give you energy, enthusiasm and excitement to create what you want.

tell me how life is easy for a positive feeling want in your life.

live your truth!

 

what do you want to create?

i am going to challenge myself to be grateful – more than i ever have. to be a positive energy that is felt when i am with others. to feel gratitude and be grateful throughout the entire day; grateful, happy and positive for all things big and small throughout my day.

i want to create a habit of gratitude in my activities, in my thoughts, in my being, in my doing. when my thoughts are negative i want to think about what is most important, what i want to create, and what i am grateful for.

i am judging of myself often in many areas of my life. there is a lot i want and i am grateful for that awareness so i can choose what i want to create. but i judge myself when i’m not being or doing what i want and when i don’t make the choices to create the life i want to live.

what will happen if i am grateful for this awareness, grateful for my experience, grateful for learning and growth, grateful for opportunity, and stop judging? what will happen if i am grateful for my being, my doing and my experiencing and stop judging because i know that i am growing and will not be, do and experience perfectly?  that i will make mistakes, bad choices, choices that aren’t creating what i want but giving me instant gratification. sometimes that’s okay, sometimes it’s truly not what i want and then i judge myself.

let go the judging. feel gratitude and choose to think about what’s most important to me, what i want, what i want to create.

i am choosing to be positive and grateful. i want a positive energy creating what i want for myself and for others. there is a lot of good in my life and it’s easy to be grateful for it. there is a lot of challenge in my life and it is easy to feel overwhelmed. i am going to be aware. i am going to think about what i want, what i can do to create what i want. i am going to ask myself, “what do i want to create?”

what do you want to create?

live you truth!

choose positive

positive. choose positive. choose to think about what you want. choose what’s most important to you.

i was thinking about questions i ask myself, and wondering what should i ask myself when making decisions and a new question came to me, “what do i want to create?”

“will this create what I want? is this creating what i want?”

there is a lot that i want. i know that i can have it, create it and experience it. i don’t know how, and i don’t have to know how. i will do what i can from here, and i will grow and create.

what do you want to create? are you choosing to create what you want? are you creating what you want?

live 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!

too positive?

are you living your life too positive?

when you live your life positively; you look for the positive in ALL of life

  • the good in people (you know it’s there)
  • the positive outcome in a bad situation or event
  • the lesson that you are learning
  • the experience that you are gaining

you blind yourself to the negative that you DO need to see, to open to awareness and take action on.

you view the bad and negative as a challenge, as a period of growth – which is good – if that growth is in alignment with who you are.

even when you like change and are welcome to change, if you are only looking for the positive; you do not readily see the right and positive choices, the right and positive path to the changes that need to be made.

you start traveling, or drifting, off course through the wrong choices and changes down the wrong path, giving and pouring your positive energies into these changes.

then slowly, or suddenly, realizing that you are not following the path meant for you, you are not doing what makes you happy. you are not doing what’s most important to you.

are you blinding yourself to negative that would be an awareness to you for a different change?

are you blinding yourself with a false positive and not living your truth?

live your truth!

laughter

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

crazy, maybe.

img104

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!

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!
