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)

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.

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

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.

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

 

 

www.Ojolie.com has generously given us her Earth Day gift.  I’m grateful for angel Ojolie’s  artistic talents that she willingly shares with us. Please see the card at

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.

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

Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Montreal, Canada.

  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.
