Color Your World!

Your Universe is all about energy. When you are synchronized with the energy around you, you truly FEEL better.  That’s why understanding the Moon transits are so important as they color our world with a different energy as Moon dances through her monthly cycle.

I’ll be packing this morning getting ready for a three day run to the city and leave shortly after writing this blog.  When I understand Moon energy while I’m away, it is easy to decide on what clothes to take.  I learned a long time ago that if I would wear the colors of the Moon sign shifting through the heavens, I simply feel a whole lot better.  That’s the mind-body-spirit-emotion connection.  For example today, the Moon is in Leo so if I wear red, then I will be synchronized with that Leo fire energy.  However, tomorrow the Moon shifts to Virgo, so some shade of green is more appropriate.  Simple.  I pack two colors then.

Last year I tried to be efficient with packing for the 2 weeks we were away on holidays.  I took only my two favorite colors of pink and blue.  It was a disastrous experiment that I will never repeat.  I felt uneasy many days, for no good reason other than the colors, I was wearing were not in synchronization with the Moon’s glow.  This year, I know at the very least, I have to have colors that go with fire, earth, air and water.

I’m hearing some of you nay sayers, telling me I’ve totally lost my mind marbles.  Most of you are men.  So you especially need to listen up and learn.  People are ultra sensitive to color when they don’t even know it.  Psychologists have known this for years.  Whole businesses have developed around the color industry as a result.  Here’s what we know to be true. 

Just wearing a color next to the skin changes a person’s demeanor.  Having someone sit on a specific color, changes their behavior.  For example, most fast food restaurants have brightly painted reds and oranges on the walls and on their seats.  Why?  Well people get antsy with red and orange so they won’t stay in the restaurant very long.  That helps turn over customers more quickly.   Most modern day prisons have learned to use pink walls where the prisoners are likely to congregate the most.  Why? Because pink literally softens people and calms them down. They become less aggressive.  So real men can wear pink!

My hubby and I are high energy people shimmering with red fiery energy.  I have colored our entire house to be in different shades of blues, greens and purples.  Why?  So that when we are home we are totally in calm, relaxation mode.  Reds, oranges and yellows just turn us on and spins us around so that we are zooming with our thoughts and with our actions.  I won’t even allow red orange or yellow flowers in the house!  If I have to be extra assertive, I wear red.  Watch out for those Red Hat Society ladies!

Now you ask me and I tell you it has to do with energy.  Each color vibrates with a different frequency.  Each color is attached to your chi energy or your chakra energy.  Even by carrying crystals in your pocket with the color of the day will help you be on your way to being in synchronization with the Moon energy.  Men, your shirts and ties will do it for you!  For heaven’s sake watch out for the color of your underwear!

Now that you understand people’s psychological underpinnings, Color your world with the Moon’s flow.  You’ll be happier when you do!  Oh yah … Moments of Color Joy!

Reflection Questions! 

  1.  Do a one month Lunar Cycle test and see how the Moon shift in color affects your behavior and feelings.

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to wear colors in synchronization with the energy flow of today. 

When you’re ‘happy for no reason,’

you bring happiness to your everyday experiences

rather than try to extract happiness from them.

It’s not that your life always looks perfect –

it’s that however it looks, you’ll still be happy!”

4 Ways to Tell New NOW Stories

Is there a secret to moving your life forward in a more positive direction?  Do you choose to tell New Now life stories?  Are you still telling old stories? People who stay mired in the past tell old stories, five year old stories, ten year old stories, twenty year old stories.  Nonetheless, they are mired in the past.  They do not realize they are new people every day.  There is new energy around them literally every day.   Our bodies totally regenerate every 7 years.  However the Moon shifts every two days bringing us new emotional energy every two days.   Please confine yourself to telling two day old stories!  Then at least you are synchronized with your own personal emotional shifts

 

It boggles my mind to find that so many people live in the achievements of their past.  That tells me they do not feel successful in moving forward with today. Instead they remained bogged down or mired in the muck of yesterday’s story.  Hello … that’s old news for your life.   How about the glorious achievements of today?  Every day your life should be filled with New NOW stories that you can share with others.  The Law of Energy Attraction and quantum physics tells us that what we focus on is what we manifest for our lives.  If you are focused on yesterday’s story, you will never move forward with today’s story or your life story for tomorrow. 

 

Yah but how do you change yourself to do this?  Here are 4 strategies to begin telling your today’s stories. 

 

  1. Examine your day and find a humorous story about your actions.
  2. Find something that touched you emotionally today.
  3. Reframe your day looking for something positive that happened to you.
  4. Decide you have angels in your everyday life.  Who was your angel today?

 

Reflection Questions! 

  1. Are you telling New NOW stories for your life?
  2. Is your energy focused on the positive experiences of your life? 

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to focus on telling today’s positive Life Story.

 

“If you think you have a problem,

accept that your belief systems (thoughts),
are giving you trouble, not the world.”

8 Pieces to Positive Pie Consciousness

We invite into our lives what we are thinking about.  That’s the Law of Attraction in action.  So if you are thinking positive things, you attract them.  Yah but how do you prevent yourself from going down to the shadow side of yourself where dark thoughts lurk and negative thoughts bubble up?  Create a Positive Pie for yourself!

 

The Positive Pie is a Tool or Strategy to help you on your journey to shifting your thinking.  A friend taught me this some time ago as something she had read.  I’m sorry I don’t know the original source.  It certainly has helped me to reframe loads of stuff!

 

Step 1:  Draw 2 circles with a small circle in the middle and the larger circle outside … like a pie only a circle in the middle.

 

Step 2:  In the inner circle put the FEELING you want to manifest in your life. 

 

Step 3:  In the outer circle, divide it up into 8 pieces of the pie.  Depending on what I’m doing, I’ve created a template for an 8 piece pie.  I label each of the pieces 1 to 8. 

 

Step 4:  I then write in each piece where I already have that feeling I want to have pervade my life.  For me, feelings of contentedness and joy in being on my path was a huge destination.  That went in the smaller centre circle of my pie.

 

Step 5:  In each of the outer pieces I then jotted down WHEN, WHERE I already experience that feeling or that energy.  Whenever negative thoughts crept in, I grab my pie and read where in 8 different places I already know I have that positive energy.  It literally waters down the negative feeling since you KNOW you already are doing it. 

 

Step 6:  I then tell myself to STOP thinking in the negative and again reread where I already have this manifest in my life. 

 

Step 7:  It is when we focus our energy on the positive that we will bring more of the positive into our lives.  So I ensure that this feeling is something I have on my monthly vision board.

 

Step 8:  Reread affirmations you create for yourself around this feeling starting with the words, “I Intend”.  The word “intend” resonates at a higher energy frequency.

 

Step 9:  As much as is feasible or possible, tie your intentions to the energy of the day.  I write about the energy generated from both the movements of the Sun and the Moon on my astrology blog. 

 

Here’s a picture of your Positive Pie!  Mercury is retrograde and I’ve been trying to get the picture to insert for over half an hour.  You’ll have to go to my media for the picture, as I simply do not have any more time to devote to blog writing this morning.

 

Laugh-a-Flow with the Universe!

Let’s increase the Love and vibrant energy of the planet!

Hugs and love from the Universe.

Victims, Soul Vampires & Quicksand

Don’t get caught up in the emotional quicksand of people who choose to remain victims.  They are trying to suck you in and indeed are soul vampires.

A number of years ago I had a dream that clearly pointed out to me one person who had taken up huge chunks of my time.  I was trying to “rescue her” when she simply refused to do any work on herself.  The dream helped me to understand that.  It seems I’m a slow learner, as I had to go through every season of the year before I learned my lesson. 

Here it is.

I was walking through my favorite forest one fine spring day and heard a call for help.  I quickly walked along the animal highway until I came to a nearby pool.  On the edge of the pool there was a wonderful woman floundering and yelling for help.  She was mired in the quicksand that I knew was in only one tiny part of the pond.  I reached down with my hands and pulled her out.  I explained the quicksand was only at that one small part of the pool.  She could avoid it by going into the pool at any other spot.

 

I was walking through my favorite forest one fine summer day and heard a call for help.  I quickly walked along the animal highway until I came to a nearby pool.  On the edge of the pool there was a lovely lady floundering and yelling for help.  She was mired in the quicksand that I knew was in only one tiny part of the pond.  I gave her the tools of branches so she could pull herself out.  I explained the quicksand was only at that one small part of the pool.  She could avoid it by going into the pool at any other spot.

 

I was walking through my favorite forest one fine autumn day and heard a call for help.  I quickly walked along the animal highway until I came to a nearby pool.  On the edge of the pool there was the same adult woman floundering and yelling for help.  She was mired in the quicksand that I knew was in only one tiny part of the pond.  I taught her to use the tools of branches so she could pull herself out and avoid going near the quicksand.  I explained the quicksand was only at that one small part of the pool.  She could avoid it by going into the pool at any other spot.

 

I was walking through my favorite forest one fine winter day and heard a call for help.  I quickly walked along the animal highway until I came to a nearby pool.  On the edge of the pool there was the same silly woman floundering and yelling for help.  She was mired in the quicksand that I knew was in only one tiny part of the pond.  She was cold, she was frightened as she had not learned to go near the quicksand.  I told her to learn her lessons and walked away.  I didn’t feel I needed to go round the yearly circle rescuing  a person who truly did not want to be rescued because she refused to use her own knowingness and skills.

Reflection Questions:

1.  Are you a rescuer?

2.  Are you a victim?

3.  Why did you choose either of those roles in life?

4.  How are you going to choose to change?

Be wary of the energy you are putting out there.  Are you attracting angels to your world or soul vampires?

Spirituality Rule of 3 Coincidences

Green lights are on!  In the Law of Energy Attraction, there is a rule to help guide us.  That Rule is when three coincidental events happen that appear related, pay attention!  This directs us to the next thing we should be doing. 

 

First Event:  Recently a friend gifted me of some things his son, an ESL teacher, sent from China. I like them primarily because they are made of blue and silk. 

 

Second Event:  A friend send me some information on how Tai Chi is related to astrology which I’m passionate about.   

 

Third Event:  My hubby gave me two lovely balls in a padded wooden box painted with a Sun and a Moon.  They have very distinct ring tones to them. 

 

This all happened over the course of a two week span.  I felt strongly that I needed to check into what these mysterious balls were.  Why would they be in our remote northern part of Canada?  I found out they are called Chinese Medicine Balls.  When I delved further into the historical background, I was led to investigating Tai Chi. 

 

Conclusion:  I’m supposed to start doing Tai Chi for my health.  I’m grateful to the Universal Force which led me to pertinent websites that will help guide me in the study of the philosophy of Tai Chi.  For you yoga folks and alternative energy folks, this is definitely tied in Kundalini and Zero Point Energy.  Any of you who might have helpful information, I would be grateful for it!

 

Reflection Questions! 

  1. What are three events that appear as coincidences in your life?
  2. What conclusion can you draw from these coincidences to the direction on your roadmap of life?

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to do Tai Chi exercises every day.  I intend to continue my research and studies into the mind-body-spirit-emotion connection. 

 

You cannot change anything in your life with intention alone,

which can become a watered-down, occasional hope

that you’ll get to tomorrow.

Intention without action is useless.”

Love Yourself Bridge Strategies

It’s time for you to remove your mask.  You know what I mean!  It’s the mask you put on when you leave your home.  It’s the mask you put on every time you interact with another human being.  It’s the mask you have chosen to paint over the real you.   My question is, do you remember who the real you is?

 

Here’s what I know to be true.  God doesn’t make any junk (Ethel Waters).  So the true inner you is an angel of light and beauty.  Therefore you are the star of your soul’s parade.  It’s time for you to let your own personal light shine through that mask you have been wearing. 

 

So it’s time to strip away your mask and rediscover who the true you is.  I’m asking you to re-discover yourself to become the self actualizing person you came to this earth to become.  It’s time for you to go into Your Sacred Safe Place deep inside yourself and figure out your cornerstone belief system.  How can you do that?  Look to your mind-body-spirit-emotion connection

 

Find out what brings you happiness and joy in each of those cornerstones that form the foundation of who you came to be this lifetime.  Once you cross the bridge into being your true self, you get to strip away all the chaos from your life.  You are on your true path to manifesting the real you!  Your energy will connect with others who are vibrating with the same type of energy you are vibrating with.  Angels will come into your life out of seemingly nowhere.  Ah, doesn’t that feel better? 

 

Bridge your fear.  Step out of your fear shadow.  Step into the sunlight.  Let your personal light shine.  Love yourself.  Be yourself Yes you can … strip away those masks! Cross your bridge from fear to love and become the person you intend to be!

 

Reflection Questions!  Use one to four adjectives to describe each part of your fundamental self.

  1. My body is _____
  2. My mind is _____
  3. My soul is _____
  4. My main emotion is joy and happiness.

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to live a life I deserve.  I am living a life of joy and happiness. 

 

To be nobody but yourself

in a world which is doing its best day and night

to make you everybody else,

means to fight the hardest battle

which any human being can fight, and

never stop fighting.

(e.e. cummings)

Water for Life July 25

Water for Life!  All living beings on the planet require water to live.  Yin-Yang; water on the outside equals emotions on the inside.  Water represents our deepest emotions according to many dream analysts and psychologists including Jung and Freud.  When we work to preserve and protect water in our world, we also are preserving the health of our own emotions.  Each of us has a responsibility to do what we can, since we are all related and connected.

 

Water for Life Global Ceremony

Water for Life Global Ceremony

 One of the things you can do is during your own meditation on July 25, 2009 join voices around the globe praying for health of water on this planet.  Raise your own health vibration and the vibration of the planet! (thanks to Mira for the picture from her blog!)  See this website for additional information on Dr. Masaru Emoto’s Mission in Life http://www.thank-water.net/english/main.htm.  What an angel he is!

 

 

 One drop of water represents a spiral.  For those of you interested in sacred geometry, you know how important that is.  Either we spiral up spiritually and emotionally, or we spiral down.  Your prayers and meditation help not only yourself, but also everyone else around you.  That is one of the ancient spiritual laws.  It now is being espoused by those in quantum physics.  Spiral up towards global consciousness!

 

Come and sip from Life’s Nectar.  Pluto shift is here.  Change is here.  Transformation is here.  Yes you can! Break open your egg shell and shift towards your new found freedom!  Help make this earth a Sacred Safe Place for all.

 

Reflection Questions! 

  1. What is one ACTion you can do to help heal water? 
  2. What is one ACTion to help heal your emotions?

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to have an attitude of gratitude every time I see a body of water. I AM grateful for the healthy water I drink.

Hope Heals Stepping Stones

I frequently hear how Hope heals much of what ails us.  The old song “High Hopes” that we learned as kids attests to that.  But does it?  I believe Hope is merely the first stepping stone to making a choice to spiral upward with your life.

 

According to Dr. David Hawkins research, Hope resonates with an energy factor of 310.  Affirmations resonate lower than that with 200.  So the first stepping stone needs to be an affirmation.  The second stepping stone after saying the affirmation is that of Hope.  Actually Hope, Intentions and staying Optimistic all resonate with a factor of 310.  So all three of these stepping stones are closely linked together.

 

In order to spiral up, one has to move to the next level of Acceptance, Forgiving and Harmony.  These feelings vibrate with a 350 level.  They would be the next stepping stones.  In this way you can transform yourself to choosing a Meaningful Wisdom direction through Reason and Understanding.  Each of those words vibrate with a 400 level. 

 

When one has a revelation about a situation and can see the situation through the eyes of Love and Reverence, one vibrates at a 500 level.  This is the next stepping stone.

 

However, to truly arrive at a point of Joy or Serenity, one has to feel Complete within oneself.  Then you are vibrating at a 540 level.  You feel at ONE with the world.  You are able to meditate and know you are connected with all things on this planet.  Since you are part of the hologram that makes up the ONE, you truly love all people and events and things that help keep this earth together. 

 

It is when you have that understanding that We Are All Related, you will find your illumination and will be filled with Peace towards all beings.  Then, and only then, will you have reached your destination of resonating at a 600 level.

 

Reflection Questions! 

  1. At what level are you at least 50% of your awake time?
  2. How can you choose to move consciously to the next level of stepping stones?
  3. When do you think would be a great time to begin?
  4. Take the first step towards having Peace in your life!

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to fill my personal world with peace.

4 Steps to Create Your Joy

We truly should work and play in things that bring us joy and passion to our lives.  I believe the reason we have dis-ease in our lives is simply because we do not allow ourselves to experience more of the things we love.  Or dis-ease enters because we are emotionally focused on negative feelings instead of focusing on positive feelings of people and things which we are passionate about. 

 

Simplistic? Perhaps.  However, understand truly the universe is all about energy.  If you choose not to empower yourself and engage in more positive energy, then that is your choice, not only for today, but also it resonates with your future.  So wouldn’t today, when the Sun is in Cancer and the Moon is in Pluto be a terrific day to begin focusing on the very things that you are passionate about?  Today with a Grand water trine to Jupiter, Neptune and Chiron is the time of expansion in the areas that will help to heal your soul, your spirit, your body and your mind

 

What are you passionate about?

What are you passionate about?

I was saddened when I heard a friend say he has waited for his retirement to indulge his passion of playing the saxophone.  He couldn’t make a living at his music passion, so he joined the military.  He’s about to be shipped to Afghanistan and has one more year to retirement.  Will he ever allow himself to enjoy?  I was saddened by a farmer’s wife who told me they have saved and waited all their lives to travel and enjoy life.  They have worked very hard for their golden years.  Now in their 70’s, their health does not permit them to do the things they always dreamed of doing.  Why wait?

 

You and Joy today?  Yes!  Have a butterfly transformation!  Open the box around your heart and let your joy fly freely around you.  Don’t you owe it to yourself?  Here’s your road map and 4 Steps to Create Your Joy today!

 

Reflection Questions! 

  1. What are four positive feelings you want to manifest in your life?
  2. When do you normally feel those same feelings? Reflect on who, what is in your life that helps you to have those feelings.
  3. How can you re-create those feelings of joy and passion today?
  4. Will you create Moments of Joy for yourself everyday?

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to create Moments of Joy in my life today.  I intend to focus on things that I am passionate about.

Yes I can!

Yes I can!

Intentions Faster than Speed of Light

Do you wonder at the Law of Attraction and how it works?  Do you wonder why affirmations and intentions work? Do you wonder why the power of prayer works?  It all has to do with the Mind-Body-Spirit connection which is faster than the speed of light! 

 

A few years ago, I set out to investigate the science about something I had heard. I had listened to a whale researcher talk about something that puzzles the whale scientists.  It puzzled them how the same type of whales AROUND THE WORLD all head back to their original homes on EXACTLY the same day.  How could that possibly be?  How could the whales be communicating with one another to say “it’s time to head home from their winter birthing grounds” ?  The scientists who are extreme specialists in their fields of whale biology do not know. 

 

Quantum physics has the research and the answers.  Quantum physics is the study of tiny, wee particles that are in each cell of every living body.  That means plant, animal and human living cells.  According to several of the scientific articles I have read, including scientist, Gregg Braden, it seems that every plant cell in the same species is connected telepathically to every other plant cell of the same species.  It is a holographic universe after all.  When an experiment is done on the single plant, other plants of the same species register the exact same results, even though they are separated by thousands of miles.  In other words, the plant that is being experimented upon is telepathically telling all its brothers and sisters what is happening in an instant play-by-play.  The lack of time lag is mystifying the scientists.

 

Similarly, when you FEEL something your feelings are telepathically going out to all other humans on the planet.  The feelings are the key to all this for both plants, animals and humans I believe.  When we have a strong feeling it is the trigger point for the entire species. 

 

Therefore, when you are praying for a specific person, all those who choose to prayerful people, feel that prayer at the nano-cellular level and instantly also are praying for that person.  Hence Miracles Happen!  Doctors can’t explain it.  However the research clearly shows that people who are prayed for generally tend to get better quicker.

 

Not only that, but the research clearly shows that if less than 1% of people have a consciousness about something, then there is a change that occurs.  For example, 1% of a city were brought together to pray for less violence in that city.  The statistic evidence showed that while they were in a state of prayer, there were fewer violent crimes committed, fewer crimes generally committed, etc.  A few hours afterwards things returned to normal for that city.  However it did show the power of consciousness when applied to a specific thing, could change the outcome.

 

So what do you pray for?  What are you intending?  This tells me that my daily conscious intentions for myself and the people I love work at the sub-microscopic nano-cellular level.  While I cannot change anyone else’s behavior, I can influence them simply by holding a strong feeling in my heart. They will feel that feeling as well.   But the people I’m intending that feeling for still have to choose to act on that feeling that will come over them.  I have no control over that.  We each have the freedom to make choices and act on our own behalf. 

 

So monitor your feelings carefully.  Reframe the negative feelings to positive ones for a healthier mind-body-spirit connection for yourself, for the people you love and for other human beings.

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to monitor my feelings carefully.  I intend to reframe every negative feeling so I can find the positive lesson in the situation.

Joy is Creating Your Reality

We create our own world and our own reality.  The Law of Energy Attraction, Quantum Physics and current psychological research is all proving that.    If you don’t like your reality, then start the work on changing it!  Empower Yourself!  I write about the timing of events so that you can be more in control of your personal universe.  I truly want to share the gift of changing the consciousness of this planet to being the peaceful Sacred Place I want in my life. 

 

So therefore, the things you currently live with, you have attracted into your life.  If you are full of fear, then the very things you fear come into your life, giving you the opportunity to address your fears.  Once you face them, you no longer have to worry about that fear any more.  Otherwise the thing you fear the most will keep on coming back until you address it.  Pluto shift.  Deal with your fear and transform yourself!

 

I’ve been working on creating my own Heaven on Earth for some time now.  I still have a way to go to paint the picture of what it is that truly makes me happy.  What brings me joy?  What do I want out of life?  It is only then that I can create my own unique Sacred Safe Place.  Be an angel to yourself and start creating your Heaven on Earth Today!

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to be full of joyful energy today.  I intend to consciously create Moments of Joy in my life today.    

 

Turn your face to the sun,

and the shadows fall behind you.

“Each man is the architect of his own fate”

Pluto Shift and Crystal Healing Hearts

There is a shift in universal energy that all people are feeling.  Many are struggling with this shift in energy as their personal worlds and professional worlds are torn apart.  Astrologers will tell you it is primarily caused by Pluto entering Capricorn.  A new world is being born.  Pluto, god of the underworld is forcing all of us to face some of our deep rooted fears.  With some people the roof of the volcano is blowing off overnight.  In some cases they are losing secure jobs, homes, and their families seemingly in the blink of an eye.  In other cases the lava flow seeps slowly down through the things they value in their lives.  However when they look back over the past few months, the inevitable question is “what on earth happened to me?”   

 

There is a “secret” way to deal with this wisely and effectively.  Face your fear and flow with the energy.  Choose to do the inner transforming work on yourself.  The Pluto shift is demanding that you change things in your life that no longer hold true for you.  When you focus on fear energy or the things you worry about the most, then those situations will be brought into your life to give you the opportunity to grow.  Like a phoenix, you too will rise up from the ashes of your life a “richer”, and happier person. 

 

This can happen only if you allow yourself to let go of the things that no longer resonate in your own personal energy field.  In other words, get rid of your garbage collecting attitude.  Get rid of the garbage people who drag you down.  Time to take out the trash!  Once you clear your emotional house of the garbage, you can be changed.  Perhaps this is your opportunity to allow yourself to say “no” to certain things you have never liked, but were too afraid to address.  Perhaps this is your opportunity to  let negative people slip out of your life.  It is when you create space in your personal life by getting rid of the negative that you allow the positive to enter.  It’s in your power.  It’s in your control.  It totally is up to you.  What do you choose for your life?  Shift willingly and begin to grow towards the light energy!

 

Many people I deal with in spiritual counseling have asked for growth strategies to help them flow and move beyond their fears. One of the best and simplest I know of is changing the energy around you by carrying a Gratitude Rock.   I carry crystal rocks in the shape of a heart as my “gratitude rock” in my pocket all the time.  Usually these are amethyst or quart since that is what resonates with me.  Find what resonates with you.  It doesn’t have to be crystal.  Instead it can be a pebble that “speaks” to you when you are walking on one of your favorite paths through your Life’s Journey.

 

By carrying the Gratitude Rock with you, every time you touch it, stop for a brief moment and give thanks for the people and things you are grateful for in your life.  It is by focusing on the good things in our lives that we change the energy around ourselves.  It is by bringing to the conscious level that we are grateful that we attract more of those good things into our lives.  No it is not magic, it’s simply changing the energy around you from negative to positive.  When you touch the rock, use it as a visual reminder to choose the high road.  Use it as a reminder to get your ego out of the way and go with the flow.  Use it as a reminder to choose what is right for your soul.  Use it as a reminder that you are blessed with many wonderful things happening in your life.  By focusing on being grateful, the Universe brings you more things to be grateful for. 

 

My crystal rocks have all been cleansed and are surrounded with healing prayers of several healers.  Many people are brought to me who need emotional healing.  I generally give them one of these heart shaped crystals to carry with them the help remind them to shift their feelings and emotions.  Conscious shift has to happen before it can become a habit.  It takes 40 days to clear away old habitual thinking.  It takes another 40 days to create a new habitual way of thinking.  You truly will shift more quickly if you do this every day.  You also will shift more quickly if you begin this during the two weeks of the New Moon phase since that is the time of new growth.  The Full Moon phase is prime time for eradicating the garbage.  Full Moon is the ending of things. 

 

The Pluto shift is all about shifting our consciousness so that you can be the best person you came to this earth to be.  A revolution is happening.  Transformation and change is all around us.  Can you change?  Yes you can!  Be grateful.  Say a prayer of thanks. Let the Gratitude Rock help this to become part of your moment by moment life experience.  Believe in the magical energy of your world.  Many blessings!

ADHD, Behavior Problems & Plants

Kids and adults with ADHD or other jittery focus problems can be helped by plants.  As a specialist with severe behaviorial kids, I searched for any ways I could find to help the kids manage their own “out-of-control” behaviors.  You see their brain wiring differs from the regular population.  The kids know it, but often adults are not aware of this. 

 

In the last school I worked in before I retired, we had a small greenhouse. I taught my staff to help the kids to take control of their behaviors through various behavior modification techniques. I found that when a child was agitated for whatever reason, if a staff member took that child to the green house, they would soon calm down.  We had mats on the floor and it seemed that if the child could sit on the mat, or lay on the mat, the child would calm down much more quickly. In essence they were being closer to the earth.

 

We then could discuss where that specific problem started and how the child could monitor their own body reaction to what sometimes was an emotional trigger.  Sometimes, it was because they had eaten too much sugar or junk food.  Other times it was due to something someone said to them on the play ground.  In other words, we were trying to have the child understand their triggers, understand their body signals and begin to take control of their own reactions.  We gave the kids life skills for managing their own behavior.

 

The bottom line is, when a person is agitated, there is something in plants that helps to calm them down.  Can I explain what that something is?  Is there research to support it?  Good questions.  I’m not sure there is conclusive research.  However, I have found with extreme behavioral teens, when they are in extreme anger mode, if they have the opportunity to “hug a tree” for 5 minutes, they calm down immensely.  Ten years later, some of my teens are now adults and tell me they still use this technique to help them.  I also have talked to Greenhouse owners who tell me of how mothers will come in with kids who are crying or screaming even.  Within a very few minutes, the kids calm down. The mothers will calm down and all is a much better quality of life in their world.

 

Similarly, taking a walk outside in a garden or going to a campground which has lots of trees and natural life calms people down.  Why do you enjoy taking holidays to either the mountains, the ocean or a park?  These can be Your sacred Safe Places on earth. The positive energy of green growing things cannot be denied.  Sometimes I believe the angels and fairies must live among the plants!  Read the Secret Life of Plants, or one of the books about Scotland’s Findhorn Community and you will be amazed!

 

Affirmations and Intentions: 

I intend to take a walk in nature to renew and refresh my spirit.

Magical Mother’s Day Angels!

Celebrate the feminine side of you!  Each of us needs a safe person to talk to.  That’s the Mother archetype.  Mothering is something we all do, whether we are men or women.  We provide a Sacred Safe Place to others where they can come and whisper or weep about their pain.  Sometimes they come and we are just silent with them.  That’s okay for that is what they need at that moment in time. 

 

I want to thank each and every one of you for allowing your feminine side to come through to the people you treasure in your life.  We all have a very basic need of belonging to a tribe. We all NEED just one person who truly does care about our well being and who does not judge us.  You allow us to just be our true selves. You accept that it’s okay for “I AM me”.   

Friends are Pot of Gold

Friends are Pot of Gold

 

 I know those of you who visit my blog are just those kinds of people. I’m grateful you are on this earth and in our world.  Blessings to you all!  May you ride a magic carpet, sliding down rainbows to find the pot of gold at the bottom.  That true pot of gold is someone who accepts us for who we truly are!

 

A special Happy Mother’s Day to Jo who is grandmother to many she has adopted and my non judgmental mother!   Hooray Mum, this is your special day …  I’m so proud of you in your empowerment of yourself!  You are a role model for all of us who are blessed to know you. 

 

 

A mother understands what a child does not say.

Water for Life Angels

 

Water for Life Angel

Water for Life Angel

 

 

Water for Life Angels.  They are the watchdogs over our water droplets.  Each droplet of water forms together with other rain water droplets to make our stream, lakes and rivers.  Each water droplet joins with its friends and flows eventually into our oceans.  That’s called the water cycle that joins up with the Living Earth cycle.

 

 

 

 

There are those who walk among us who are water angels on every continent.  Every country has its water angels.  Your community has water angels. They are the people who try their utmost to ensure you have a clean drinking supply.  Without clean water, people get sick and don’t live a quality of life. These folks take care of your local water supply trying to ensure it as clean as possible.  These people help keep our web of life alive.   

 

 

 

Gaia heart beat

Gaia heart beat

 Water is a fundamental need for all living things on this planet.  Food is a fundamental need.  Air is a fundamental need. Without these fundamental needs, all living things on this planet cease to exist.

 

 

 

 

 

 

You are an angel!

You are an angel!

 

Water angels get a halo I believe.  I’m privileged to sit on a committee of water angels.  These folks care enough about your water supply to give freely of their volunteer time trying to ensure the watershed we oversee remains healthy.  They jealously guard the health of the streams, rivers and lake that make up this watershed.  In our area, they represent 30 different groups from CEOs of large companies, to non-profit interest groups to scientists to local politicians.  However, just as important as the decision makers, is the person who is minding the water “store”.  That person is the one who is doing the water testing and works at water treatment plants. 

 

 

 

 

If you know anyone who is working for your water health, the health of your family, and the water health of our planet, give them a big hug and a halo of thanks.  They have a very important job to do for all living things on our planet.  If you are one of them, then thank you for the work you choose to do. I’m grateful you walk among us.

 

 

Now here’s some food for thought.  Just as these folks preserve water for life, there are those angels who are watering your spiritual life.  They are helping to raise your global consciousness.  Give them a hug too!

 

 

Reflection Questions! 

  1. What can you do locally to preserve water quality?
  2. What can you do to ensure your local water supply is healthy?
  3. Who are you going to thank for making sure your family’s water health is ensured?
  4. Have you thanked your glass of water for being healthy?  See www.hado.net  

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to thank a water angel today.

Real Earth Day

Today is the Real Earth Day with the Sun and Moon in Taurus, the “Mother-Earth” of the zodiac.  I am passionate about doing what I can to preserve the healthiness of our planet in my small piece of this sacred space.  We who live here have an obligation to demand that our governments, our industry and people who live in our town and home do what they can to make our sacred place a healthy one.  The wise ones say that what decisions we make today affect 7 generations. 

 

 

At the very least plan on planting a tree this spring!  Trees are the lungs of our planet.

 

 

Reflection Questions! 

1.      What decisions are you going to make for your Sacred Place, Mother Earth? 

2.     What are four NEW things you can make as a habit to clean up your little piece of this earth?

3.     Who can you influence to keep our sacred planet clean and healthy for your children and grandchildren?

4.     What can you do to respect your water consumption?

 

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to walk lightly on Planet Earth.  I intend to influence my family and my friends in making a light carbon footprint.  I intend to plant 24 trees. I intend to make respecting the earth part of my daily spiritual journey

Nature’s Spring Love Songs

Spring Peepers Sing a Song of Joy!  In New Brunswick, they call them spring peepers.  Where I live in Alberta they are merely called spring frogs.  A polished “peep” is what they sing and I love it!  One spring peeper can be heard but barely, above the beauty of the joyous tinkling water sound.  But thousands literally make the very air reverberate with their lovely chorus.  These peepers emerge from the frogs’ eggs that lie deep within the depths of the muck of the streams during the winter.  In the spring, they hatch and emerge as tiny wee frogs with hearts that sing as beautifully as Susan DoyleI have a dream” of a new life!  (What a magnificent voice that wonderful woman has.  She is a reminder that true beauty lies below the surface of our consciousness.)  That’s a spiritual awakening and a global rise in consciousness for all of us.  Yes, Rebirth time is here!

 

 

The first sign of spring is the creek running over the beaver dams that fill my pond or slough.  That’s a sure sign that the thaw is finally here. The only time we hear the water rushing at the farm is this delightful water running sound in the spring.  It seems to sing and shout the joys of rebirth.  We all are awakening from a long winter’s nap where we cocoon here in the north.  This winter annual cocooning gives us time to regenerate our spirits.  We emerge like the water ready to embrace a rebirth and a new life.  Death and rebirth issues are all around us.  The spring signs are a hint of the marvelous rebirth.

 

 

Another early sign of spring in these parts are the pussy willows emerging from their buds.  Soft, gentle and waving gaily from the tree tops, the pussy willows reach towards the lovely sunlight.  Sometimes they are fooled on a warm winter’s day when some early bird willows pop out.  But in the true spring, the woods around the pond are alive with the smells and softness of several types of willow.  Their smells later will permeate the air.  The willow twigs I sometimes burn in our wood stove just to have the unique scent. 

 

 

We are on the migratory route for all kinds of birds.  So the sky if filled right now with sky streams of ducks and Canada Geese honking their way north again.  The bald eagles began appearing a couple of weeks ago.  Soon, very soon, I hope, my beloved swallows will twitter and begin dive bombing the dogs on our farm.  Every year I buy another cedar bird house so their population will grow and they will invite new friends to return with them.  These are natural bug killers and that is yet another reason why I love and support swallows.  Yes, spring is on its way. 

 

 

Happiness and Joy.  Rebirth. The very earth sings, dances and smells different.  It’s a new world.  It’s a cosmic new life.  It’s the time of your annual rebirth too.  It’s part of our natural earth cycle for all living things in the web of life. 

 

 

However, let’s tie this into astrology.  The real spring in your birth chart begins with the month you were born.   Each season is comprised of 3 months according to Suskin’s astrology book, Cycles of Life.  Start charting your own seasons and understand your chart more effectively. 

 

 

Reflection Questions!

1. What are four signs of spring in your part of the world?  

2.  How are you rebirthing yourself to be a new and improved YOU model?

3.  In what parts of your life do you need sing to the world about your talents?

4.  In what parts of your life do you need to reach up to the light and grow in your spiritual consciousness?

 

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to read enlightening books every day.  I intend to grow and stretch my heart, body, mind and spirit. 

 

 

Whatever your life’s pursuit — art, poetry, sculpture, music,

whatever your occupation may be –

you can be as spiritual as clergy,

always living a life of praise.

Angel Dimes of Hope

angels surround us

angels surround us

We all have angels in our lives.  Angels who have passed over to the other side often leave signs that their energy is still around us.  Indeed, while their physical bodies may be gone, their spirit lives on.  While there are many signs, the Dimes of Hope are one of those signs.

 

 

 

 

 

A friend of mine did not believe in heaven.  “There is one life on this earth and that was it.  We return to dust”, she told me years ago.  Then her mother, whom she adored, died.  All of a sudden dimes were showing up in the weirdest places.  For example one day when I was visiting her, she wiped off the kitchen table and then sat down to enjoy a cup of coffee.  A dime showed up on the just-wiped off table where she put her coffee mug. 

 

 

Apparently this grandmother used to stash dimes in her piggy bank.  When her grandchildren came to visit, she was always giving them dimes to buy themselves some penny candy or other little treat.  Grandma would take out a bunch of dimes to purchase those treats.  Her twelve children and many grandchildren associated dimes with Grandmother.  So it is natural that Grandmother would reach out to her family from life beyond this earth to reassure them that she was okay.  Her daughter became a believer of life after death.

 

 

The other day, another friend spotted a dime when I was with her.  She had recently moved and was stressed about the move to a new town and a new job.  Coincidentally she kept finding these dimes all around her new location.  She told me these dimes were being sent by her mother to reassure her it would be okay.  She said this was an old Irish belief system.

 

 

It is important to remember that when people we love die, they are just on the other side of the doorway.  Perhaps we can’t see them and perhaps we can.  My sensitive sister sees our father frequently when she needs to ask his advice on something.  This has reassured her immensely.  I don’t see people who have passed over, but I frequently will hear their voice with wise words whispering in my head.  I find it strange as I will catch glimpses of my animal friends who have moved to another world, but I don’t get to see people.  Other people will have them come in their dreams and appear as if they are very real and can be touched.  However the angels come to visit you, they are real and their message is clear.  There is life beyond this earthly life.   

 

Reflection Questions! 

  1. Do you see angels who have passed over?
  2. Do you hear angels who have died?
  3. Do you dream of people who have left this earth?
  4. Do you smell the people’s unique smell when they are gone?

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to being open to the angel messages.

 

 

If we had no winter,

the spring would not be so pleasant;

if we did not sometimes taste of adversity,

prosperity would not be so welcome.

(Anne Bradstreet)

4 Ways to Change Fear of Life

Living life fully is a process. It’s called living your life on purpose.  Living your life and dealing with fear is also a process.  What is coincidental is they have the same steps to success, if you choose to live a life on purpose.  Each day of our lives we have angel people coming to lend us a hang up to the next stage.  It is our choice whether we choose to become self actualized people or choosing to remain bundled up in fear.

 

Cocoon stage one

Cocoon stage one

 

You see it is all about our willingness to change, grow and transform ourselves.  So the first step is the cocoon stage.  We have spun that cocoon filled with excuses like our genetics or our childhood environment.  Fear becomes our cocoon. We blame and feel shame about so many things in our lives.  Those and other scary feelings about life generate fear.  Lots of people choose to stay stuck in their cocoons all their lives.  They choose to remain in the winter time of their lives.  I call them the living dead.  People like this are so scared of everything that they truly are not alive. They are emotional stuck and their response to everything is child like.  Many of our bullies remain stuck at this stage all their lives.  They never grow unless they are willing to face their fears. Fear walks with them every step of their life’s journey so they put on their bully face hoping that people won’t see how insecure they are.  Their Emotional IQ is that of a young child.

 

 

 

caterpillar stage two

caterpillar stage two

 An angel comes calling.   Step two Some people are ready for soul growth.  They decide they truly do want to live life.   So they face their fears and come out of the sheltering cocoon they have built for themselves.  However they don’t want to venture too far and like a caterpillar walk around the edge of their leaf all their lives. While they have faced some fears, they still vibrate with the energy of fear.  They remain in the place of emotionally blaming others or thinking negatively.  So they too remain in the springtime stage of their Emotional IQ.  They truly never grow emotionally.   Many remain stuck at a teenage or late spring stage of their lives.   

 

 

 

Monarch butterfly stage 3

Monarch butterfly stage 3

 

An angel comes calling.  Step three.  They are ready to venture off that leaf with more soul growth.  They have chosen to do the work on themselves.  They have dived deeply into their emotional well and healed themselves.  Instead of blame, they look to the lessons they learned from their honorable adversaries. They have a new broader cocoon that reaches out to the universe and Creator or God or a higher power.

 

 

 

They understand they have to continually feed their souls from the sweet nectar of positive life experiences.  They surround themselves with people who are choosing to move forward.   They surround themselves with books, people, events which are positive and vibrate at a higher level.  They turn their backs on anything that vibrates with negative energy and choose to reframe.  They identify the good life lessons in every situation.    They embrace the summertime of life and grow emotionally through all their life’s journey.  They are fully expressing their Emotional IQ.

 

Egg - stage 4

Egg - stage 4

An angel comes calling.  Step four Fall Phase These people are fully prepared for the final stage.  They understand Life is a Journey and know their soul’s wisdom is never lost.  They understand that physical death is the beginning of new life and new transition.  So they embrace the egg laying stage of their lives.  They transform since they have lived a life filled with joy and purpose.  They choose to be an angel to many.  Nature life’s cycle begins again!

 

 

 

Reflection Questions! 

  1. What stage of growth are you in?
  2. List at least 4 positive feelings you choose to manifest in your life.
  3. What are some events you can create to manifest more of that positive energy?
  4. Is your inner circle of friends filled with people who live those 4 feelings?

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to focus my attention on my 4 positive feelings.  I intent to grow and change every day.  I move forward in a direction that brings me happiness and Moments of Joy.  I live my life filled with positive purpose.

Love Life, Love Water

Water is life on Planet Earth.  We truly need to understand the value of water in our lives.  We also need to honor water on our planet.  We truly need to love the water that goes into our bodies.  You see approximately 85% of our body is made up of water.  Is that a coincidence that Planet Earth has approximately 85% of her body being made up of water?  I don’t think there is any such thing as coincidence in the design of our higher power, by whatever name you choose to call her or him. 

 

Dr. Emoto was the first scientist to understand the power of telling water we drink that we love it.  The wise ancient ones knew this. When we honor water, the crystals in the water virtually change and the water is better for our bodies.  So Dr. Emoto is raising global consciousness by taking his message around the world to honor our lakes, our rivers, our oceans as well as the water we drink.  http://www.hado.net/

When you understand the power of your positive words through Dr. Emoto’s research, you also understand the energy and power of your words on the people you love.  Begin with yourself and the self talk in your head.  If you do not love yourself, how can you possibly love anyone else?

 

Then understand as well the power of your emotions and feelings when you choose to cook meals for your family.  Only serve them food cooked with love.  If you are upset or angry or any other negative emotions when you are preparing a meal, you truly are changing the energy of the food your family is eating.  That also is one of the reasons why home cooked meals are best.  You are thinking of your family and how you can best feed their bodies.  Frankly I believe the reason there is an increase in dis-ease around the world is because we are not honoring both the water and the food we take into our bodies.  By eating junk food, fast foods and restaurant foods we are not filling our bodies with love energy.  Simplify your life and cook more meals at home. Be an angel to your family and cook with Love!

 

I also believe the next “gold” standard around the world will be good drinking water.  Start purifying your food and the water you drink by saying a prayer of thanks and a prayer of gratitude before you put it into your body.

According to Dr. David Hawkins, when you think, feel and say the word “Love” sincerely from your heart, you are vibrating at a 500 level.  Our ordinary state of being is at a 200 and negative words in our minds, our hearts and thoughts vibrate below a 200.  Hello!  Make the energy connection.  Change your thoughts, change your feelings and act on vibrating at a higher level today!

 

Reflection Questions! 

  1. When was the last time you told food you were grateful?
  2.  When was the last time you told water you love it?
  3. What percentage of time are you thinking positive thoughts when you are talking to people you love?
  4. How frequently are you using the word “Love” spoken from your heart? 

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to tell water and food that I love it.

4 Lessons Live Life with No Regrets

Honor yourself. Honor your intuition. Honor your feelings. When you choose to live life honoring your feelings, you choose to live life with no regrets. 

 

Many years ago, I lived a life full of hidden emotions.  I didn’t want anyone to know how I felt and learned to adopt a poker face so that no one could read my emotions.  I was the person everyone else turned to with their raw emotions and their problems.  I was unable to share my own.  After all, I was supposed to be the strong one for everyone else.  How wrong I was.  I did not honor my own feelings! 

 

As a result of keeping myself tightly bound up in my cocoon of emotional protection, neither the bad feelings nor the good feelings could leak out into the outer world.  What lessons I had to learn!  Along came an angel friend who gently guided me to the loving world of Leo Buscaglia when she gave me his book Love.  There were several lessons for me to learn.  You see, others perceive me as striding forward confidently throughout life.  Inside myself, I was a quivering mass of jello fears, shaking that someone might discover the truth of who I truly was.  As a result I lived with plenty of regrets at not telling people in person how I honestly felt about them.  Oh I wanted to, but I was so afraid of their reaction.  I held back and stayed in my fear cocoon.

 

So here are the four main lessons I learned from Leo Buscaglia that may helped me on my journey. 

 

4 Lessons to Live a Loving Life

 

  1. Love myself enough to honor my feelings.
  2. When I care for someone, to tell them I care for them. 
  3. When I need a reassuring hug, hug someone else so we both feel great!
  4. Tell everyone you care about specifically what they mean to your world.

 

The last one is kinda like the warm fuzzies.  If someone has done something that gives me the warm fuzzies, I tell them I appreciate them for doing ___.  They feel good.  I feel good.  Win-win energy to go around!  My wise father used to say “You catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar.”  Fortunately I learned those lessons well decades ago.  When people have left the earth to become angels, I know in my heart I have told them exactly what they have meant to me.  I live life with no regrets.

 

That’s how you feed your own energy and that’s how you help to feed others positive energy.  We all need to be needed.  We all need to be appreciated.  We all need to hear that others are grateful for something we have done for them.  Therefore we need to let others know when we are grateful.  Allow yourself to experience the joy in life you so richly deserve.  You see this grows your happiness and joy bubble of bliss!  So be an angel to someone in your world every day!

 

Reflection Questions! 

  1.  Did you smile at yourself in the mirror today?
  2. Tell yourself at least four ways you already experience joy and happiness in your life.
  3. Who needs to hear that you love and appreciate them?
  4. Who in your world needs a hug?

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to honor my feelings.  I intend to live a life with no regrets.

 

To love others, you must first love yourself ….

You can only give to others

what you have given to yourself.

(Leo Buscaglia)

 

Take a chance on Life’s Dance!

Live a life with No regrets!

 

Let’s increase the Love and vibrant energy of the planet!

Hugs and love from the Universe.

Fear & Eagle Egg Parenting

Eagles soar

Eagles soar

Soar with the eagles or scratch around with the chickens on the ground.  It’s scary flying into the unknown and new beginnings.  It could be a new job, a new house, a new career or a new location.  It’s always scary to step into the unknown.  That is a normal human reaction to anything new.  While we may be thrilled and exhilarated, underneath is the drumbeat of fear.  We all feel this fundamental fear.    We are stepping out of the Sacred Safe Place we have created. 

 

 

 

New Beginning

New Beginning

My friend is starting out on a new business venture.  The seeds or egg of this idea was hatched some months ago.  She has to leave all she has known all her life behind and travel thousands of miles to begin a totally new life for her.  She is terrified.  Hooray!  That is perfectly normal!  Here is the note that I wrote to her.  

 

 

  

 

Leaders Food

Leaders Food

We are so proud of how far you have chosen to come to date.  I feel like we are eagle parents hatching an egg with you!  We are fussing more and worrying more about you than we have done over any of our other “kids”.  But then you see, that is love.  We love you enough to want to see you emerge from that egg, strengthen you wings and fly on your own when you are ready.  Until that time, like great bird parents, you will be under our eagle eye.  

 

 

 

Come to the edge.

We can’t, we are afraid.

Come to the edge.

We can’t, we will fall.

And they came to the edge.

And he pushed them.

And they flew.

(Guillaume Apollinaire)

 

Sometimes as family, friends, extended family or partners we truly have to understand that fear is a normal response.   If you reframe the fear and treatempower them with the confidence to grow.  Then and only then will they be able to fly with the confidence of an eagle!  Help empower people you love to change the energy around them

! 

 

Reflection Questions! 

  1.  Who needs my support to take that first step out of their comfortable nest?
  2. How can I help them to understand their fear is a normal feeling.
  3. Where can I show them love and confidence instead?
  4. Do you fly with the eagles or walk around with the chickens? 

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to fly with success in all my adventures.  I intend to soar with my ideals and ideas.  I intend to have the courage of a fearless eagle.

 

If you think you can or

if you think you can’t,

You’re right.

(Henry Ford)

 

Dance and take a chance on life!

Rules Who Needs Them?

 

What’s the answer to that question?   I know someone who carries an imaginary backpack.  It’s filled with phantom books the size of the phone books you get in any major city.  Each of those books is filled with rules for every situation in the universe.  What a heavy load for this person to carry!

 

 

It amazes me that this person invents a rule for every situation he comes upon.  Now perhaps it’s because he’s Virgo Moon.  Perhaps it’s because he has a retrograde Mercury.  Whatever the reason, before he takes any action or says anything, he mentally goes flipping through all these imaginary books to find out what the rule is in this particular situation.  So if you meet him and he is hesitating to answer you, or is slow to respond, understand that he mentally is flipping through all these rule books frantically looking for the answer on how to proceed in this situation you are discussing

 

 

Why this amazes me is that I have invented my own rules for living since I was 2 years of age.  I never look to anyone else’s rule, but determine what single rule I choose to live by.  I have to look myself in the mirror every day.  So I have to live with my own conscience.  

 

So my rule always is,

“Will I be able to live with the outcome of this situation

tomorrow or

a week from now or

a year from now, or

for the rest of my life?

 

 

From my second year of teaching until I retired I gave this poem to every group of teens I worked with.  Teenagers as they feel their way through life are opposed to rules and restrictions of any kind.  These words led to some great discussions about why SOME rules are necessary.  It may help some of you out with the people in your household.

 

Rules by Rod McKuen in Watch for the Wind

 

I wish the rules for everything

Were printed in the daily paper,

Spelled out on billboards 10 feet high

Or taught to us in school.

Reading, writing and arithmetic and RULES

Not needed to pass the course

But to get us through

Our allotted time here.

 

Reflection Questions! 

  1.  What rule book do you follow?
  2. What is your main rule in life?
  3. What rules are not necessary?
  4. Why do we have rules of any kind?

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to follow my own rules in life, harming no person and seeking harmony.

What Tribe do you Belong to?

 A 30 year old man died last night by his own hand.  It doesn’t matter how he chose to commit suicide.    He lived only for his drugs and partying.  Did he discover that his friends made through drugs and alcohol were shallow friendships?  We will never know.  He had no sense of purpose for the last decade of his life.  He had no true sense of belonging. 

 

Self actualize!

Self actualize!

A sense of belonging is a human fundamental emotional need.  We all have a need to feel needed by someone else, even if it is one single person.  That person validates us and makes us feel special.  We can then go forward with living a life on purpose. 

 

 

 

I am sad that this young man choose this route.  I have worked extensively with teens who did not complete suicide.  In all cases but one we were able to give them a sense of belonging to the tribe or to greater community.  But you see it ultimately is not up to any one of us to establish that sense of belonging for others.  They have to choose to belong to the tribe themselves.  They have to feel needed.

 

I am sad for this young man’s family whom I personally know.  They will live the rest of their lives questioning where they went wrong.  They didn’t do anything wrong.  It was his choice.  At any moment he could have chosen a different path, but he never took the multitude of opportunities that came his way. 

 

Love life!

Love life!

Frankly, I get angry at people who complete suicide.  They truly are the ultimate in being selfish.  They are not up to the challenge of grabbing onto the roller coaster ride of life.  They leave behind a legacy of guilt and tears in the people they supposedly love.  I have heard far too often from friends and family of suiciders.  Years later, the ones left behind feel guilty at not having done something. 

 

 

 

Hear this message loud and clear.  There is nothing you could have done.  It is a personal choice to opt out of life.  They have chosen to be the walking dead to begin with.  They have not truly been alive for some time.  That totally is their choice. Their choice is a permanent fix to a temporary problem.  The person who opts out of life by suicide usually does not want help.  The help is everywhere today.  They are too selfish to get it.  They fear more than they love life or love themselves. 

 

 

Reflection Questions! 

  1.  What tribes to do you belong to?
  2. What purpose do you have for living your life?
  3. How do you give to your community?
  4. What are at least four things you want to accomplish yet?

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to be grateful for living a life on purpose.

4 Ways to Face Your Fear Drag-ons

Fear is a drag-on our emotions.  Fear holds us back from achieving our true potential in life.  There are really only two emotions in this world:  fear and love.  They are at opposite poles and all other emotions fall between the fear or negative emotion and love, the positive emotion.

 

 

Sleeping Drag-on

Sleeping Drag-on

 

 

Who knows what will trigger our fear?  Sometimes these fears are huge drag-ons.  Little tiny things will trigger them to come our way.  Frequently we give our startled response and act in anger.  Is it really anger you are feeling or do you fear something that has become your drag-on?  Is it really pain you are feeling or has your sleeping drag-on awakened?

 

 

 

 

 You see, people who truly love us, support us emotionally. What happens in our lives truly matters to them. They want our happiness and our joy. They are part of our Love Journey. When we leave them we feel positive, upbeat and good about ourselves.  They help give us a sense of belonging.  They help us to look in the mirror of life and reaffirm that we are just fine the way we are.  That’s what love does.

 

 

Friends as Drag-ons

Friends as Drag-ons

Other times they appear as friendly drag-ons.  Those are people we thought were friends, only they bring out these negative feelings in us.  They leave us feeling drained, uninspired and negative.  I call them our soul-sucking drag-ons.  They certainly don’t love us. 

They are doing everything they can to steal our personal power by showering us with their negative energy.

 

 

 

4 Ways to Slay Your Drag-ons

 

Slay your drag-ons  So I’m suggesting you start slaying your Fear drag-ons. Start with the one that haunts you the most.  That drag-on is impacting your life the most, so let’s get rid of it first.   First drag it up to your conscious level.  Second ask yourself what is the worst possible thing that can happen if you deal with it head on?  Third, rehearse in your mind how you want the scene the go the next time you have to face that particular drag-on.  Fourth, how do you want to feel once you are finished slaying your worst drag-on?  I hope you will say, “I Love myself for facing my fear”.  It’s the only way you will ever find Your Sacred Safe Place in your heart and your soul.

 

 

 

Cross Rainbow Bridge

 

Cross that bridge to loving yourself.  You see, if you love yourself enough, you will choose to slay your drag-ons.  Your drag-on feelings are holding you back from reaching your true potential in life.  You did not come here to fear life.  You came here to love yourself enough to embrace life.  When you face your drag-ons by crossing that bridge, you will have abundant love and beauty surrounding you wherever you go.  So what is holding you back from loving the most important person on the planet … YOU!

 

 

Reflection Questions! 

  1. What is your main fear?
  2. What is the virgin moment of when that fear started?
  3. What is the worst possible thing to happen to you if you confront that fear?
  4. How will you feel if that fear no longer rules your personal world?

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to face my fears.  I am the drag-on slayer.  I intend to walk my world in love.  I love me!

 

 

Man has a pretty static picture of the world,

Accidentally or forcibly imprinted upon him

By means of chains of conditioned associations.

Man believes him imprint board is reality.

Bullies are Sociopaths & Psychopaths

Bullies in the Hood?  Bullies in your office?  Bullies in your family? Take back your Sacred Space.  Take back your Neighborhood! Use your mind-body-spirit connection to rid your world of these toxic bugs.  They are like pesky mosquitoes everywhere.  Visualize them as being a pesky mosquito and “slap” them mentally, emotionally and spiritually.    

 

 

I have worked with some pretty mean bullies in my lifetime.  The psychological literature shows that bullies are frequently our bosses.  They are found in every family.  They are found in every political party.  They are found in every neighborhood.  They are found in every club and organization.

 

 

Let me explain what their behavior means in psychological terms.  According to the DSMIV, they are officially one of two names either sociopaths or psychopaths.  They exhibit psychopathological behavior.  Yes, I know, you thought those were the people in jail who committed some unspeakable crime.  They too are sociopaths who have committed a crime they got caught for.  There are also sociopaths who frequently are white color workers or like I said, they live and breathe everywhere.  They clearly exhibit the same types of emotional and behavioral patterns that have put the others behind bars.  Like prisoners, they are prisoners within their own skin because of their choices. Some we call psychic vampires or soul vampires.  We totally feel drained when we are in their presence.  I have written about that earlier in this blog.

 

 

 

Nobody has every liked them since they were kids.  They are totally insecure.  Let me explain.  All of us want attention when we are children.  If we can’t get it in a positive way, then we become poorly behaved and get that attention in a negative way.  Take a look at any adorable 2 year old.  If they don’t get loving attention, they start screaming just so that someone will pay attention to them and their emotions.  So a bully is self-created by their own choice of how to act!

 

 

When it goes on for a long time, they learn the only way they can get attention from their peers is through bullying and intimidation.  They use manipulation to get others to bend to their will.  They use this energy of fear tactics because it is the only way they have any personal power.  The other way they get power is to get into a position of authority.  Then what absolute horrors they bring to all our lives. 

 

 

So what can we do about it?  One strategy I have already told you about.  Visualize and don’t run away.  Face them head on.  You see bullies do not like to be confronted.  They don’t know what to do if someone isn’t screaming or shouting back.  If you remain calm, cool and collected, they are totally unsure of themselves.  They feed off fear energy. 

 

 

Conversely, another more powerful strategy  is you can be an angel, but a firm angel.  First do the visualization so that you are changing the energy around you.  You’ll be giggling inside at least.  Then surround yourself with a golden colored cocoon so their negative energy won’t hurt you.  Next send them loving energy.  Wrap them tightly in warm soothing hugs and send them love energy.  That’s truly what they crave.  But you see, they do not love themselves.  If a person does not love themselves, they are incapable of ever loving anyone else.  We have to surround them in a multisensory way with love energy.  If you are an angel of light, you will do what you can to help this impoverished soul.  They are in such emotional pain. 

 

 

Personally, I feel sorry for the choices they have made for themselves during their life’s journey.  At any moment in time, these bullies can choose to change their own energy.  They too can choose to begin loving themselves.  This in turn will help them to loving others in a healthy way.  Be an angel.  Help them to change their energy if you are a healer and they want to change their energy.  These bullies are truly in their own personal self-created hell. 

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to teach others to change their attitudes when they are ready to love themselves.

 

 

Let’s increase the Love and vibrant energy of the planet!

Hugs and love from the Universe.

Love Your Extended Family

My extended family are angels in my life.  Each one is a precious gem whom I have carefully chosen for one reason or another.  I love each one and they have helped grow that love immensely over time.  Some of these angel jewels have been in my life for decades.  Others have come in more recently.  Each one has helped my heart to grow bigger.  Each has helped my heart to vibrate stronger with the golden love they give back to me.   

 

 

I was cleaning out the debris and deleting some of the people who are on my friends list who have been inactive for over 90 days.  In other words, they no longer can access me so easily.  I thought, ah, if life were only that easy to delete some of our garbage family members.  You know what?  It is that simple!  Interestingly I heard from three of my extended family members lamenting about their bio-family yesterday.  That’s not surprising given the double water energy of the Pisces Sun and Pisces Moon.  So here’s my response to one of them whom I dearly love. 

 

 

Out of sight, out of mind, out of my life! … Delete and hit the delete button in your heart!  You see, people like your sister just are so into themselves that they don’t really give a damn about you and others.  Yet look at all the others that you care about.  Those folks sincerely return your feelings back to you full circle. The ones you choose to have part of your extended family are the ones who truly care about your well being.  They care about what happens in your world.

 

 

So not only did I delete people from blog world, but also I went in and deleted people from my “family” email whom I never hear from, either verbally or in person, or through email.  They are unworthy of my love and my attention because they are apathetic about life.  Their energy must be very low vibrationally.  They certainly no longer vibrate in my world. Excuse me, but why flog a dead horse?

 

 

I want people who choose to live and who choose to love whole heartedly in my world.  I want people in my world who choose to live their lives on purpose.  They dedicate themselves to growing and evolving. They choose to make the world a better place for all of us to be. I want people in my world who truly do contribute love to the world and who sincerely care.  I choose to surround myself with people who vibrate at a higher energy level of truly loving in their hearts.   Their actions and their deliberate communication efforts show that what I do and what happens to me, matters in their hearts.

 

 

Hence my extended family have moved into my inner circle of caring and loving.  They have become my chosen sisters and brothers . in my web of life  They are the ones I will expend my energy on.  They are the ones who bring chats of happiness and joy to my heart.  These are the people to whom I will send my golden trinkets and treasures of my memories of day-to-day life.  These are the people I choose to share the rest of my life with.  These are the people who sincerely do care whether I live, whether I breathe, whether I thrive or not. 

 

 

Now I have to tell you I was born into a deeply Christian family.  So now you know the rest of the story as well.  Nope, I have no great love for those who grace the church doors professing to be so pure in their Christian hearts.  Their actions totally belie their churchy words on Sundays.  I suspect the same holds true for every other religion, so religion has little to do with it.  Instead I view these “no-lifers” biological family members as being cancerous energy in my heart and in my soul.  So I just used the available Pluto energy and burned them out of my life and heart forever.  

 

 

So my dear extended family member, just hit the delete button in your heart.  Instead of yearning for people from the past who are not worthy of your heart energy, hit delete!  Look to the people who love you NOW and embrace their energy whole heartedly.  Your life, your love, your heart and your soul are worthy of you surrounding yourself totally with love and loving people.  They are the ones you have been looking for approval from all your life.  They are the ones who will move forward into a loving future with you.  Allow yourself to love in the NOW.   Choose those who will love you for all your soul’s being in their future.  I love you and am grateful you are in my life, my angel.

 

Let’s increase the Love and vibrant energy of the planet!

Hugs and love from the Universe.

 

Love Your ZENN again!

So you want a smog free city or town this summer?  You have to do some talking about ZENN and the hybrids.  It truly will begin with you chatting up a storm with your family and friends.  Recently I received an email from a friend along with a powerpoint on electric cars that were built 10 years ago.  I’m not sure about the factual information on this powerpoint, but it asks the question why we are not moving this technology forward when we know it will help with the famous carbon capture problem we are having around the globe.  Here’s my response to my friend that I felt might be of interest to the rest of you.

 

The oil and gas lobby is certainly very strong in both Canada and the USA.  The regulatory powers in Ottawa were simply not allowing the Zenn electric car or any other electric vehicle much opportunity to move forward in Canada.  Yet ZENN vehicles were sold in several other countries around the world.  My blog is read by hundreds of folks whom I hope will tell two friends and discuss it further.  Then hopefully they will move things forward with their votes the next time round.  We need to hear the discussion buzz of electric AND hybrid car possibilities in the very coffee shops and bars all over our great country.  It is ONE way we can move towards smog free cities and countries. 

I have written about the ZENN on at least three other occasions.  I know there have been other cars created by other countries.  This is the only one in Canada that is being made.   

 

What we hear from the politicians is the electric cars can’t keep up with the flow of traffic and are unsafe.  In actual fact oil and gas fund lots of political people and are a strong lobby group.  Oil and gas are one of the major driving economic forces in our country.  So guess what.  When we should have had electric cars now running in the 85% population base of our cities 10 years ago, they are still not there.  When our politicians should be spending their government dollars on government vehicles that are totally run by electricity, they still aren’t doing it.  If we had made this move 10 years ago when the auto people were doing this, our world would be a much healthier place to live today. 

 

Thank God for BC which has passed legislation and now is the only province in Canada to allow electric cars such as the ZENN on the roads.  Due to political pressure, ONT is considering allowing the electric car.  Yes, we have to continue voting in politicians and parties that have a very green agenda in every province as well as federally. 

 

All I can say is thank God we have Barack Obama who will insist that every piece of legislation will be attached to green energy in some format.  He’s the only one with the clout who can insist this will happen in North America.  Stephen Harper has done a complete about face on green thinking as a result of trying to be in the good books with the USA.  However, he still doesn’t get it that you can tie economics into green power where everyone comes out the winner.  He certainly did NOT listen to Canadians who tried to tell him that with their green vote on the last election.  Instead Harper said that economics superceded green and environmental concerns.  Hello!  They are tied together, but Harper simply is unable to think outside his little box in his head.

 

Hopefully in the next 10 years we all will have cleaner air to breathe as a result of Obama’s influence in Canada as well as all North America and Mexico.  Thank God for NAFTA.  We had the technology 10 years ago.  We had electric cars on the road 10 years ago.  We could rent them 10 years ago.  My question is why are all our government cars not either hybrids or ZENN cars?  Our politicians should be leading the way by their example.  Our politicians have let us down for the past decade.  You can change this by demanding hybrid cars and particularly our Canadian made ZENN. 

 

I just received this information from my cousin Curtis who has a hybrid.  Thanks for the hybrid links! He is being given some grief about people with blinders on about hybrids.  When I asked why, here is part of his response.   It has to do with disposal of the spent batteries and how much extra manufacturing there is for the hybrids

However this seems to be positive  http://www.treehugger.com/files/2005/06/should_we_be_wo_1.php

Then there is this : http://www.hybrid-cars-information.com/hybrid-cars-manufacturing-impact/

One Million Acts of Green

Biodiesel, fuel cells, solar power, geothermal power, geothermal heat, wind power.  These are all major movers towards finding solutions to our world-wide dependence on oil and gas.

 

Last night our neighbor came over to discuss his latest research in exploring biodiesel.  He is pumped.  He is excited.  He is passionate.  He’s in the agri-business and sees biodiesel as one possibility of getting rid of excess waste of grains he can’t sell due to spoilage.  He talked of the possibilities of creating fuel from wood chips to algae.   Old hay in the fields?  It can be used to make fuel. 

 

Some of this discussion came from my concern about food products being sold to create biodiesel instead of feed the people around the world.  Last year there was a huge outcry around the world because our food prices had increased substantially.  That friends was due to speculation on the commodities markets around the world.  It was not due to the supply of food grains.  The farmers can’t sell their grain products for what it cost them to produce even.  Farmers in Canada have a surplus of food product for this very reason he explained.  So my friends the problem is laid at the door of Wall Street and stock markets around the world if you are paying more for food where you live. 

 

Frankly, the price of gas has decreased immensely here.  Our food prices were sent soaring to reflect high gas prices.  Those food prices have never come down with the decline in gas costs.

 

One Million Acts of Green is a hit with Canadians!  We saw the interview with George  Stroumboulopoulos the other night on the news.  George says the two things that are most easily achieved is

  1.  Turn your lights off when you are not using them
  2. Change your light bulbs to energy efficient ones.

 

Go to their website to find out all kinds of ideas of how you can green your environment and take the Million Acts of Green Challenge.  http://green.cbc.ca  

 

Are you from another country? How about getting your major media to issue the challenge to create a greener sacred space in your province, state or country?  It only takes ONE person to get the green ball rolling rapidly. We only have one earth and we all need to be a part of the solution, since we have all been a part of the problem.  Here’s another website I subscribe to for information and solutions! http://noimpactman.typepad.com/blog

 

Reflection Questions!

  1.  What are 4 things you can do to make your home environment a greener place?
  2. Are these practical solutions?
  3. Are these achievable?
  4. Can you and your family make them a habit?

 

Affirmations and Intentions:  I intend to change one habit today.  I intend to make this a greener world.  I intend to honor the environment in which I personally live.

Spirituality Light and Dark

Winter is wonderful! It reminds me that our spiritual journey must be made up of both light and dark in order for us to grow. Those are polarity points. While we may think we want extreme light and goodness in our lives, we only get there through experiencing some of the darker moments. We need to go into the depths of the dark emotional life experiences to do our inner work.

 

So do not fear those dark times in your life. Embrace them for they will help you to grow emotionally. Some call these Vision Quests. It is when we overcome the Dark Night of the Soul that we grow. We face our fears and learn to move forward. One step at a time. One fear at a time. Deal with it and continually spiral upward and forward! Nature gives us the blueprint for living. Winter time and the darker time of our lives is a time for cocooning and thinking about why we are here, where did we come from, what is our purpose, what is our next step”.

 

While we may think it is dark outside, there is moon reflection and star light to help guide our paths during the dark of night. In winter we have the added reflection of the moon off the snow. We are never truly alone because God or Creator or your higher power, or the Universe sends us these lovely beams of light to befriend us and light our way. If we look up to the heavens, we see the stars reflecting all the light of the world that is available to us. It is a reminder to us to look to the beauty of the natural light and the beauty of our Higher Power. If we look down, we see the light reflected as diamonds in the sparkling snowflakes. Each of us is a diamond when we choose to reflect the light of the Universe. It is a choice that you can make for your life. Yes we can! Frankly we are not meant to live in fear. Instead we are given these points of God’s light to show S/he always has a Sacred Safe Place for us to go to. That safe place can be in your heart if you will allow it to happen.

Reflection Questions! 1. What is your main purpose or goal at this point in your life? 2. Are you one the correct path for you? Or are you continually running into road blocks? 3. What is your primary feeling about your day? If it is not positive, then you are not on your sacred path. In other words do you have more light or more dark in your life? 4. Where does spirituality fit into your life?

 

Affirmations and Intentions: I intend to focus on my spirituality so that it becomes as natural to my life as breathing.

Green Recycle Your Electronics & Computers

Help keep this earth The Sacred Safe Place for all of us.  Most of you know that we recently had to replace Zeus, our workhorse computer and printer.  What do you do with the old one?  Take it to a landfill?  Throw it out in the garbage?  No and no.  Coincidentally, I received this email below requesting a link to one of our business websites.  Hooray, the universe provided my answer!

 

I’m an avid recycler and promoter of all things that will help keep our lovely planet a better place to live for each of us.  This email is reprinted with permission here.  Since I now have an old computer and printer that no longer work for me, I’m thrilled to see such a place exists. 

 

I am writing from www.era.ca , The Electronic Recycling Association. We are a non profit organization that donates and recycles computers and electronics. We are trying to gain more exposure, and are asking if your organization and website could post a link to us? We will gladly place your logo and link to your website on our website’s link section as well.

 

We are The Electronic Recycling Association @ www.era.ca , Located in

  1. If possible please check this out for yourself. Then get your local municipality or city to recycle computers and other electronics to this nonprofit agency.
  2. Please post this same email on your blog or contact them to link to their website.  They appear to be just getting their website going, so be patient.

 

I’m in the process of revamping 3 of our websites and plan to include this organization in my list of links.  As well, I intend to write a letter to my local municipal government asking them to let people know about this through their newsletters and links.  I also will write a letter to our local newspaper editor asking people to do the same thing.  Newspapers love to get letters to the editor.  Lastly, I’m going to forward this to people on my email list so they will be aware of what they can do to take their replaced electronics and computers to heaven.  We need to do what we can to help create a better place for all.  Besides, this company refurbishes electronics and gives them away to groups that cannot afford such luxuries.  What a grand idea!  For those of you living in other countries, please see what is available in your country and post it on your blog.  Why wait until Earth Day to do something that is helpful to this sacred place we call home?

 

Peanut Product Recall

Peanut butter is a staple in our house.  My Sherpa and I both love it (with bananas and chocolate is best for me, with jam is best for hubby).  I was appalled that my mother who is with the Golden Girls in Florida had not heard of this recall, since she too eats peanut butter daily.  So for those of you who also are in the habit of feeding peanut products to your kids, please see the list.  Thankful the peanut butter we generally eat is not on this list.

Hawaii Goes Green – Alternative Energies

Eons ago, wise elders have said that when we use the heat beneath our feet plus the heat from the Sun, and the power of the wind, we will be okay.  To me that translates into geothermal, solar and wind power. The time has come for the world to wake up to using renewable alternative energies for their electrical costs plus their heating and cooling costs. 

For those who follow my blog regularly, you know that both my hubby and I took the training a year ago to be geothermal installers.  We took the beginners course and have a long way to go before we feel we confidently know what we are doing.  I was totally thrilled with what I learned about this amazing alternative energy just due to it’s high efficiency rating compared to other alternative energies.  The initial outlay is costly, but if one looks to the 5 to 10 year turn around, that upfront cost is paid back many times over with the reduction in ongoing costs of heating or air conditioning.  That’s why many governments are now insisting that most new government buildings include geothermal.  This is being done in both Canada and the UK.  I was totally thrilled to find out that Kona island in Hawaii is using geothermal to provide 25% of its electricity needs.  Neither Tom nor I understood how this was possible until we saw these websites of geothermal that is happening just a few miles from here.

http://geothermal.marin.org/index.html

http://www.punageothermalventure.com/

 

 

I was delighted to find that the entire state of Hawaii has a mandate to have electricity totally generated by alternative energy by 2020.  Currently they import 7 billion dollars worth per year of imported oil just to produce electricity alone.  This year they open a massive solar cell farm and a wind generating farm. 

http://www.silobreaker.com/DocumentReader.aspx?Item=5_945128196

 

Germany had the foresight to do this close to 2 decades ago and they are almost there.  Too bad our federal and provincial governments didn’t have as much political will.  See the comparison between what Germany and what Canada is doing here.  http://windpathfilms.com/blog/2008/11/alternative-energy-canada-needs-to.html I was saddened to learn that a Canadian could not make a living in Canada with solar energy.  He moved his business to Germany and is now thriving.

 

 

Please educate your politicians whom you voted into office.  The time is now to take action.  If we had done this 20 years ago all of our countries would be in the enviable position that Germany is in regarding heating and cooling.  It takes the will of the people plus the political will.  Then just make it happen a little bit each year.  Hawaii is doing it.  China is beginning to do it.  Is your country doing it?

 

 

In my greatest dreams someone will come up with a way that a KISS small earth-solar system will be installed at every person’s home around the globe.  Imagine the dream … free heat, cooling and electricity from the sun, earth and wind!

 

 

Please collectively put this on your Full Moon Vision Boards.

We the people can make this happen! Yes we can!

Dance in the Full Cancer Moonlight!

Love Relationship Suitcase

What are you packing in your life suitcase?  Who are you choosing to pack around with you?  Empower yourself!  You get to choose what those suitcases contain.  What colors of clothes do you want?  What size do you want? Have you recently changed your preferred colors or sizes?  Do you want to change the shoes you are taking?

 

 

Similarly, the people we have in our inner circle are those we pack with us in life.  Periodically we should check to see who we are packing in our suitcases of Life.  If your energy size has changed, then perhaps you can choose to only take along people who are more positive.  Perhaps you can choose to take along people who help you on the Life Path you are on right now.  Take a look at your past.  Are you still packing people from your past?  Perhaps it’s time to get a smaller suitcase and not pack them around anymore!

 

 

You see we are getting ready for a much needed vacation.  Last night a friend called and demanded to know why I have not called her recently in her hour of needing to hear about her latest lament.  Frankly, she has all the skills to deal with her issues.  Rather than use the skills and do the work for herself, she wants someone else to carry her and do her work for her.  Like many people who seem to prefer to live from negative crisis to crisis, she tries to be very demanding of my time.  So I decided not to pack her in my suitcase anymore.  I turned her problems back over to her to solve a couple of years ago.  It’s time for her to carry her own stuff. So now I call once a month to check in, instead of several times a week.

 

 

Is it easy to change the energy when we love different people in our lives?  NO!  It’s something I certainly struggle with.  Tough Love is never fun.  I need to be needed. But in this particular case, I love her enough to want her to empower herself and trust in her own decision making.  I love her enough to want her to pay attention to her own intuition and interpret her own dreams.  She needs to pay attention to her own coincidences, patterns and cycles of life.  All those signposts help to empower her in the direction on her Map of Life.  It’s time for her to be the lovely soul she came to this earth to be.  She needs to choose to live her life on her purpose and her intentions.  I love her enough to have her do the work on herself and to carry her own Life’s suitcase.  I love her enough for her to begin reading her own Map.

 

 

When your own energy has changed and you are choosing a more positive growth path for yourself, often you will find the old luggage still wants to hang around.  However, they no longer fit in your suitcase.  You’ve changed your colors into vibrant growth colors.  You are a different more pleasing energy size.  Very gently remove the old clothing from your luggage and give them to God and the universe to take care of.  If you are on a significant growth path, they will only weight you down.  Honey, even your Sherpa guide couldn’t possibly carry them all. 

Reflection Questions

1.  Where are you choosing to focus your passion and energy? 

2.  What is in your baggage or luggage?  Can you downsize?

3. Are you packing others, or packing yourself and your soul’s growth?

4.  Which 4 people are you going to put in your suitcase to accompany you on your Journey?

 

 

Affirmation:  I intend to pack my suitcase with people who are growth oriented.  I choose to spend my time on positive people who are actively moving forward.

Empower yourself!

Use the Law of Attraction, your vision board and

attract positive people into your life.

Now isn’t that a wonderful notion in motion

for your Life Map and Your Life suitcase?

4 Seasons of Love

There are 4 seasons to our Love and relationships.  I’m referring to loving yourself, loving your family, loving your friends and loving your partner.  I’m convinced that 4 seasons cycle holds true in many different areas of our lives.  I believe we were giving the 4 seasons as a blueprint for those cycles that we can detect in our lives.  Think about this and apply it to yourself!  This can assist in your cycle of transformation and change which those who seek continual growth go through.

 

So if I’m truly engaged and active and upbeat, there will be a time in my life when my rhythm has to be the valley where I go deep inside and am quiet.  That gives me the balance. That does not mean I have lost the thing I am passionate about.  It means I have to experience the quietness of that passion to take it to a new level. 

 

 

In the spring of the year, all seeds are bursting forth with newness and growth and vivid color.  The smell is different.  The colors are different.  All the senses are alert and alive.  Similarly, our passion for someone or something we love has to have seeds that burst forth.  During the newness or the beginnings of that love, our senses are like those of the springtime.

 

In the summer, the colors change.  They grow deeper as the flowers mature.  Much of the plants energy goes into creating these flowers and this beauty to attract the birds and the bees which help pollinate the plant.  Similarly in our relationships, we put a lot of energy into the love we have for another during the summer of that relationship.  We explore ideas together, we do things together, we spend a lot of time watering and feeding one another’s soul. 

 

In the fall the rhythm of life changes.  We no longer need the bright colors to attract birds and bees.  The fruit is developing nicely.  This is similar to love energy.  It has been pollinated and is maturing.  It will be sustained if we have nurtured it, weeded out the stuff that doesn’t work for us both and fed the relationship with good topsoil of conversations and experiences. Our relationship has ripened and matured by a level of truth, honesty, trust and understanding.

 

In the winter, we tend to be quieter in our relationship.  It’s not hibernating, but is sustained under that lovely snowy blanket of white that holds everything we hold dear together.  That snowy blanket is woven through the love fabric of emotions that continue to water our love through both good times and others.  So sometimes we get a total new dusting of snow and at other times we get slush.  So what, our blanket of love is woven tightly enough to endure.  If we are very wise, we are planning together for the next phase or cycle of our lives.  We are deepening our relationship.  While this appears to be a quiet time, in fact life is teeming underneath the white mask we present to the outer world.  This is a time of introspection and quiet rhythms of day to day normal life with our partner or with our friends.  They accept us as we are.

 

We need the quietness of winter where everything is sleeping before we can burst forth with a new spring growth!  It comes full circle once again.  Wise ones will tell you that you need to continually work at your relationship to sustain it, to make it a perennial plant.  I want to suggest you look at having 4 seasons in your love relationship!

 

Reflection Questions Love Quiz:  Examine your relationships and friendships pattern. 

  1. What do you typically do in the spring of any relationship?
  2. List 4 words to describe your actions in the summer phase of relationships.
  3. List 4 words to describe your behavior in the fall or autumn of relationships.
  4. In what season is your relationship with yourself, with your friends, with your honey?

Affirmation:  I intend to allow myself my natural cycle of relationships!

Instead of looking for love, give it;

constantly renew it in yourself and

you will always feel its presence within you.

It will always be there smiling at you,

gazing on you kindly.

Passion & Sacred Places

I truly believe we have to rediscover what our passions in life are.  It is only by knowing what your passion is that you can understand what makes you happy.  It is by knowing what your passion is that you can understand what brings you joy.  It is by understanding yourself, your passions, your happiness and your joy that you can follow the trail to your bliss.  Passion, happiness, joy, bliss are all sacred places within your soul.  You can visit there any time and feel at peace within yourself.  How on earth can you possibly achieve your potential, your talents and your gifts you came to share this time around if you have never discovered them?

 

 

I am dumbfounded when people cannot tell me even one thing that they are passionate about.  My challenge to you is to discover 4 things you are passionate about in 2009.  You see my goal is to create a sacred place on this planet.  If you are living in your personal world with passion and deliberate intent to be happier, to be more at peace within yourself, you create a better world not only for yourself, but for each living being on the planet.  When you are happy, the entire earth sings because of the vibes you give off.  That’s the law of physics at the nano level.

 

Choose the way and the tribe of the peaceful warrior.  Resolve to “fight”  for unity and peace in your home.  Peacefully resolve all conflict that is in your personal world.  Show others around you how to be at peace within themselves.  Be an angel and be a role model to others around you.  These are my wishes for you, your family and those you love in 2009.

10,000 Hours or How to Succeed in 3-5 years

 

Your destiny

Your destiny

 

 Today is the New Moon in Capricorn.  That means our thoughts will turn to success and what makes one have power in one’s job or career.  All it takes is 10,000 hours of dedication to whatever your career is.  You can master anything through sheer hard work.  You have to willing to empower yourself and be willing to put in the time and concentration.

 

Don’t give up.  Our 7 year old grandson said wisely to his grandfather, “We never give up in our family, do we?”  Now no one has ever said anything to this little guy.  But through his astute observation, he noticed that all the adults in our family work hard at whatever task they do.  This has become his mantra actually.  Don’t give up.   You see months after he was born, he had severe whooping cough for some time.  His vocal cords were damaged through all his coughing.  It is only after working closely with a speech pathologist for the past two years, that this little guy can speak clearly enough that we can understand him.  It is through his motivation to want to be clearly heard and understood that he doesn’t give up.

 

 

 

 

 

Your Life is in your own efforts.

Your Life is in your own efforts.

 

 

The research shows that it is not IQ that leads to success.  It is not opportunity or the family you were born into.  Instead,  dedication, motivation and determination or hard work that are the main factors leading to success.  We create our own opportunities by those main factors.  So empower yourself beginning today.  Set your goal.  Focus on your goal.  Don’t give up.  Your life is in your own hands!  10,000 hours of Deliberate Practice that’s all it takes according to Ericsson (1993).

You can manifest what you want in your life.  Add to your new Moon Vision Board the words, grit and determination!  Yes We Can!

 

 

 

Reflection Questions

1.  In what area do I want to be known to successful?

2.  Am I willing to devote the time to be successful?

3.  What skills to I have to acquire to become a success in this field?

4.  Am I willing to sacrifice other areas of my life to be successful?

 

 

Affirmation:  I intend to focus on my one main goal for 10,000 hours until I feel successful!  I intend to focus on my one main goal for the next 3 – 5 years!

 

The difference between great people

and everyone else

is that great people create their lives actively,

while everyone else is created by their lives,

passively waiting to see where life takes them next.

The difference between the two

is the difference between living fully and just existing.”

(Michael E. Gerber)

True Beauty Reflection

Angel in the Light

Angel in the Light

Reflect on the beauty that is truly within your heart.  You are wonderful and beautiful just as you are!

 

Many blessings to my angel friend WendyLane who shares her artwork with all of us!

Gratitude Rocks!

Angels Watch over You

Angels Watch over You

 

 Angels and Gratitude Rocks! Carry a small pebble in your pocket to remind you to be grateful today.  Every time you put your hand in your pocket, say a little prayer of gratitude for someone or something in your life.  I give gratitude rocks to people I care about in my life so they too will remember how important being grateful is.  Any type of rock or pebble will do.  Amethyst is the rock of healing energy and I tend to give amethyst to lots of people who need some type of healing in their lives.

 

 

 

 

The Law of Energy Attraction suggests that what we are grateful in our life keeps on showing up.  When we choose not to be glad or acknowledge the things we desire in our lives, then we make the choose to have them disappear from our lives. 

 

I find more and more that I refuse to give gifts to people who do not express gratitude.  I’m not going to waste my precious time and energy if they are unable to say at least a “thank you!”  Instead, I give them a lesson in gratitude printed on a business card and a gratitude rock.  When they are astonished at the lack of gifting, and choose to ask the question, I tell them they have to learn to be grateful for all the blessings they have in their lives.  It is the best life-long gift I can give them.  I have done this with my grandchildren who are in their 20’s as well as with others.  I usually only have to do it one time to teach the children that to be grateful and thankful is an important part of our  life’s journey. 

 

Be an angel and teach this valuable energy gift lesson to them!  Oh and if they don’t ask, then don’t tell.  They are not ready for the lesson yet.  But don’t give them anything either.  They are not grateful for what you do for them.  So don’t do it!  Set up boundaries for the people who are supposed to respect you.  If they don’t respect you, then why do you think they deserve anything?  Because society says?  Because your family says? I don’t think so!  Give a donation to charity instead where your gift will be respectfully and warmly received.

 

 

Reflection Questions

  1. Who are you grateful for?
  2. What are your grateful for?
  3. How do you express your gratitude?
  4. When do you express your gratefulness?

 

Affirmation:  I intend to keep a list of all the blessings in my life.  I am grateful for you taking the time to read this blog!

 

 

If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “thank you,”

that would suffice.

Nature’s Love Poems 2

Nature sings a Love Poem at every season of the year. We are so blessed by the gifts we receive from nature.  If we watch carefully, we learn all the Life Lessons we need to succeed.  Those gifts from nature are part of our roadmap through life.

 

Winter brings the gift of White Light.  In the country where I live there is only natural light at night.  It is never truly dark since the white snow reflects light once your eyes adjust.  Similarly, sometimes when it seems to be very dark in our emotional lives, all we have to do is open our hearts and feelings to the white light of our higher power.  We are never alone if we believe and have faith that there is a higher power.  I don’t care whether you call that higher power Buddah, Allah, God, Creator or any other name.  There is but ONE higher power.  When one examines the major religions of the world, fundamentally they all preach the same message.  That is a message of Love and caring for our fellow human being. 

 

Winter brings the gift of slowing down the earth’s rhythms.  It is a time to go inside and to reflect.  It is a time to take life easier.  It is a time to simplify.  Winter is a time of Soul renewal in preparation for the rebirth that will awaken us in the spring.  Before we can have that rebirth, we must reflect, learn our lessons from the past year and grow from them.  Winter is very necessary on our soul’s journey.  Wintertime is the time to raise our consciousness.

 

Winter Fairy

 Enjoy the magic of winter.  Believe in the magic of the little spirits that come whispering on the wind and into your hearts.  Be grateful for those inspirations that we call intuition!  Bless everything you have in your life by being grateful.  That increases the positive energy around you!  That’s the Law of Attraction.  Since winter is wonderful reflection time, then empower yourself!

 

 

 

If you want to increase good things in your life, remember to be grateful for what you already have.  Say a little prayer several times a day, just between you and your higher power.  By focussing on the positive energy in your life, you bring more positive energy into your life.  So watch what you feel in your heart and what you think even!

 

I’m delighted you came for a visit. Remember to give Green environmentally gifts year round! Enjoy!

we catch at least a glimpse of the joy

The biggest tournament of the year was about to happen and I called her into my office and told her she was not allowed to go.  She was devastated and of course went to her parents lamenting the fact that this was to be her last basketball game in that K-9 school and she was not allowed to attend.  Her mother was one of my favorite staff members.  Her father walked me “down the aisle” when we got married 5 years ago.  So I’m very close to the family.  This girl is like looking myself in the mirror at the same age since she is also a Taurus and born 2 days after me.  

New Beginnings

New Beginnings

The egg is a seed.  To me a seed stands for new beginnings of some kind.  In my last year of teaching and being school administrator, bullying was a real issue. The 14 year old star of our girls’ basketball team was being a bully.  Her coach complained about her behavior at practice.  Her teammates tearfully came to me for counseling when her comments ripped them to shreds emotionally. 

 

 

 

 

 

However, she had become a bully not only to her teammates and to her coach, but also to other kids in the school.  Understand this is a gal who is beautiful, smart and a leader.  But she had become full of herself and was arrogant.  I knew that somehow I had to nip this behavior in the bud or she would be horrid as an adult. 

 

Needless to say, her father called me at home that night saying his daughter was just sobbing her heart out and Daddy wanted to fix it for his eldest child.  I listened and told him I would deal with her in the morning, but made no promises.  On my 45 minute drive to school I prayed to God to give me a solution since it was beyond me.  Instantly the answer came to have the girl go and buy a dozen eggs before I did a counseling session with her on this issue. 

 

When she brought me the eggs, I had her write the names of each of her team mates on the each egg.  Then I had her write her coach’s’ and the names of her two sisters.  So now each egg had a name on it.  She picked up each egg in turn and told that person how she truly felt about them and what she cherished about them.

I then had her take each egg, one at a time and put it on the floor and stomp on it.  When she was through with all 12 eggs, I told her she had to pick up each individual egg and yolk and return it just the way she found it.  Of course this is impossible. 

 

 

I then told her that is what she does with each person she belittles and puts down.  She breaks their spirit with her words.  They are never returned whole in the same state at which she found them.  It mixes them up and they are shattered.  I asked her how she felt towards each of these people whom I know she loves.  When she told me she was devastated by her behavior, I then had her clean up her yellow yolky mess.  She then had to go and find each person whose name was on an egg and apologize to them for her behavior. She was to tell them how much she valued their friendship and how much she loved them.  Here was the condition.  If they accepted her apology with grace and forgiveness, she got to go to the tournament.  She was not to tell her friends that.  She was crying, I was crying for the soul of this young chick. 

 

It was a lesson well learned.  Yes, she got to go to the tournament.  When she went to high school, she became a phenomenal leader, with compassion and understanding.  Today, I’ve very proud of the young adult woman she has turned out to be.  She is a leader in her small community.  She is a valuable contributing member to her peers.  She even likes herself now and no longer feels the need to bully. 

 

 

You see, bullies are the most insecure people in the world.  When we confront them, it takes away their power.  If there is a bully in your life today, take the seed of this idea.  Create a new beginning for yourself and for your life.  Confront your fear and do not let them run over you.  Be an angel for your sake and theirs and confront them with their behavior.

 

Sometimes we have to use the seeds of tough love to have the result of a lovely caring and compassionate person.  Did I know how this was going to turn out?  Not at all.  But God gave me a clear message and I trusted that message.

 

Take the first step in faith.

You don’t have to see the whole staircase,

just take the first step.

(Martin Luther King Jr.)

Joy & Happiness Quiz

Happiness and Joy is the best therapy there is in life.  The best alternative energy to helping yourself to heal any wound is to create Moments of Joy in your life.  You simply do the following process preferably on a walk in nature:

  1. Breathe deeply inside right down to your toes.
  2. Have a sensory experience.  What do you smell, taste, see, feel, hear?
  3. Give yourself 5 minutes of calm, deep breathing.  Focus only on your breathing and your sensory experience.
  4. What 4 simple things bring you Moments of Joy?

A year ago I began taking at least 4 Moments of Joy breaks a day.  I work long 12 – 16 hour work days juggling diverse things for the businesses my husband and I run.  By interspersing those Moments of Joy throughout my work day, I easily am able to stay focused on what I have to do.  So I choose specific times of my day and no matter what else is happening, the world outside ceases to exist.  I instead go inside to my World of Joy.  It’s the pause that refreshes your spirit.  It’s the pause that makes life worth living.  It’s the pause that brings you deliberate planning of happiness in your life, every single day.  I have found that by doing this, I’m more apt to focus on the positive events of my day.  I have also found that the more difficult events are dealt with in a much better way.  I used the Law of Attraction and affirmations to help me bring this energy into my life.

Moment of Joy Reflection Questions

1.  What 4 simple pleasures bring me joy?

2.  What smells, tastes, sights, sounds, touches makes me feel happy?

3.  Where can I find some “me pampering” time today for 5 minutes of joy?

4.  One a scale of 1-10 how well do I love myself?  5 = average, 10 is top of the scale.

We are ALL Related

The world is a small place.  We are ONE people when you consider the big picture.  We know there is a higher power.  We all love the same important things in life: our children, our families, our country.   We all bleed red blood. We all live in the same neighborhood called Earth. 

 

We are linked through recycling the air we breathe and the water we drink.  We are linked to all people and all living beings on this marvelous planet.  We are linked to all who have lived before us.  Imagine it!  We are breathing the same air and drinking the same water as Einstein and Shakespeare!  We are all related in one family.  We are ONE!

 

Since we are 95% alike in what we truly want from life.  We can solve all problems through the common thread that runs through all of us.  We are raising our global consciousness.

 

Think green to preserve our Earth neighborhood.  YES WE CAN!

 

Angels Surround Us.  We call them fantastic friends around the globe!

8 Pieces to Positive Pie Consciousness Strategy

We invite into our lives what we are thinking about.  That’s the Law of Attraction in action.  So if you are thinking positive things, you attract them.  Yah but how do you prevent yourself from going down to the shadow side of yourself where dark thoughts lurk and negative thoughts bubble up?  Create a Positive Pie for yourself!

 

The Positive Pie is a Tool or Strategy to help you on your journey to shifting your thinking.  A friend taught me this some time ago as something she had read.  I’m sorry I don’t know the original source.  It certainly has helped me to reframe loads of stuff!

 

Step 1:  Draw 2 circles with a small circle in the middle and the larger circle outside … like a pie only a circle in the middle.

 

Step 2:  In the inner circle put the FEELING you want to manifest in your life. 

 

Step 3:  In the outer circle, divide it up into 8 pieces of the pie.  Depending on what I’m doing, I’ve created a template for an 8 piece pie.  I label each of the pieces 1 to 8. 

 

Step 4:  I then write in each piece where I already have that feeling I want to have pervade my life.  For me, feelings of contentedness and joy in being on my path was a huge destination.  That went in the smaller centre circle of my pie.

 

Step 5:  In each of the outer pieces I then jotted down WHEN, WHERE I already experience that feeling or that energy.  Whenever negative thoughts crept in, I grab my pie and read where in 8 different places I already know I have that positive energy.  It literally waters down the negative feeling since you KNOW you already are doing it. 

 

Step 6:  I then tell myself to STOP thinking in the negative and again reread where I already have this manifest in my life. 

 

Step 7:  It is when we focus our energy on the positive that we will bring more of the positive into our lives.  So I ensure that this feeling is something I have on my monthly vision board.

 

Step 8:  Reread affirmations you create for yourself around this feeling starting with the words, “I Intend”.  The word “intend” resonates at a higher energy frequency.

 

Step 9:  As much as is feasible or possible, tie your intentions to the energy of the day.  I write about the energy generated from both the movements of the Sun and the Moon on my astrology blog.

Hugs and love from the Universe.
