With a great group of people gathering weekly to share insights and make a small positive difference in the world! Love these guys!!
One thing that I find myself doing on a daily basis, sometimes hourly basis…sometimes minute by minute, is choosing to Live. That’s with a capital “L”. It’s so easy to move through my day, weeks, month going through the motions of life rather than really living them.
What do I mean by that?
I mean: When my husband stops me in the hallway for a hug and and a kiss, I stop myself, both physically and mentally, bringing myself into that moment and being fully Present. I get to experience him/us in a way I could not had I continued on with the thoughts and the forward momentum of my day. I get to appreciate that moment we shared, which is then stored as a memory in every cell of my body…a memory of Love.
I mean: When I’m doing various tasks throughout the day, paying attention to where my thoughts are, where my attention lies. Focusing on enjoyment of the process of life in that moment. If it’s something I usually find tedious or don’t like doing, easing into an energetic space of gratitude for simply being physically able to do it. Simple, isn’t it?
I mean: When faced with challenges which would potentially cause emotional pain, stepping into a Loving space where I am willing to walk through the fear, the unknown, with the overarching energy that all is always well and I have the ability to shift myself into a better feeling place any time I desire to, and that if I have created a situation which feels less than good, I can create something that feels better too.
We are NEVER victims of our circumstances. We have created them, along with the Universe, for a purpose sometimes greater than what we may presently comprehend or feel. Setting judgement of those circumstances aside and simply Loving eases everything. Awareness of our participation in the creation and of our power to create something better. Willingness to move forward in Love. Patience for the better-feeling situation we are intending to manifest. Faith that it will. Compassion for ourselves and others. Understanding our Miraculous, Spiritual nature and how, as Creative beings, we get to design the life we desire then Lovingly going about designing it from that moment forward. This is Life!
Love to you all! xox
Please forgive me.
I Love you.
Look to this day,
For it is life,
The very life of life.
In it’s brief course lie all
The realities and verities of existence,
The bliss of growth,
The splendor of action
The glory of power—
For yesterday is but a dream,
And tomorrow is only a vision,
But today, well lived,
Makes every yesterday a dream
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day.
Love to you all!
It’s okay to take a few minutes to close your eyes and just breathe so you won’t say something you don’t want to say. It’s okay to feel like you want to say something you don’t want to say. It’s okay not to beat yourself up. You are divine. You are perfect just the way you are, in every moment of every day.
It’s okay to feel sadness coming up from your core and not be able to stop yourself from the tears that follow. Cry. Cry a lot if that’s what you need. Then, wipe your eyes and blow your nose and remind yourself you are Loved beyond measure and you are powerful beyond measure and you have the ability to create anything and everything you desire.
It’s okay that all your plans and dreams are not manifesting yet. Focus on how you feel right now and create the feeling of dreams manifested. Then, do the next inspired thing, without resistance. That may mean taking out the trash or cleaning the toilets. Whatever it is, be in the moment with gratitude. Have fun. You are the director of the show.
It’s okay to feel any way you feel. If something feels “bad” then shift your focus or your perspective or change your thought about it. Change how you feel about it.
It’s ok to be strong. It’s ok to be weak. It’s okay to be everything you are in any given moment.
It’s okay to be YOU!
Much Love!! oxoo
We’ve all heard the saying “There are no guarantees in life.” Dying while in labor with my daughter was the last thing I expected to happen that morning. I had the expectation of a safe delivery, but that expectation was not met. I had all these plans for my life afterward, but those plans changed, and in a big way.
This virus has no consideration for the outline you have of your life. It is here, and may not be going anywhere. Consider that for a moment. A virus that we know little about, one there is no vaccine or at this point, no medications to treat, may be a continuous threat for the foreseeable future. Our lives have been fundamentally altered in one foul swoop, leaving many reeling, wondering how they are going to manage themselves now.
Our personal and professional lives, in some cases, have been turned upside down. From the cashier at any store in America to the physician (or physician assistant in my case ;), the financial impact of this pandemic is significant, for some irreversibly damaging to their lively hood.
But, I ask you, is this a “bad” thing?
We are here to expand in awareness of who we are. We are here to connect with ourselves in a fundamental way so we may then better connect with one another. It is through our connections that we grow and become Who We Are. Sometimes things need to be shaken up in a big way for this to happen. No matter the source of this virus, whether you believe the scientists or the conspiracy theorists, its here. My question is, what are you going to do with the time you have on this earth, right now? Are you going to continue on in the same way as before? My guess is the world won’t let you. None of us are going to be able to, and that’s a good thing.
Focusing on what we have gained from this virus being present at this time in our lives, rather than what it has taken, completely turns our experience around. We go from the perception of loss to one of gain. We have gained time either alone, or with family. We have gained time to consider where we are in our lives and where we’ve always wanted to be. What is your hearts desire? What do you want to do that you haven’t done yet because fear has kept you from it?
Now. Now is the time to make the changes that will allow for greater growth and spiritual expansion. Fighting the changes, lamenting about how life will never be the same, keeps you stuck in the old when all your soul wants is to let the new rush in.
Say “YES” to your life and your life will step up to meet you. Every. Single. Time.
Much Love to you !! xox
