What Are You Talking About?

Your Thoughts and Energy are a Package Deal

Have you ever noticed that what you consistently think and/or talk about is what keeps showing up in your life?  Chances are it’s the negative aspect that you probably notice the most because it’s what you don’t want.  Positive occurrences are most times thought of as luck and not the manifestation of your thoughts, even when they are positive.

Depending upon which energetic field your thoughts and conversations fall under (positive or negative), you can expect it will all become a self-actualizing prophecy for you because your thoughts and energy are a package deal.  What you think and talk about is what you will create, so be very wary of which energy you are feeding.

I think we all notice the result of negative thinking more because it’s an aggravation to have it show up in your life, so you stress about it, talk with others about how bothered you are by it.

Pay attention dear one, you are now feeding it!

I think everyone has had the bad day, the bad week, the bad month, hopefully not so much the bad year but all of this is the creation of your thoughts.  It’s hard to change the process around from talking about the things that you don’t want especially when they are upsetting to you.  It’s a natural thing to want to discuss, deal and discard the things that have either hurt or hindered you from moving in the direction you want to see yourself going.

By becoming aware of how those thoughts and conversations are influencing what you see develop day after day in your life you will understand how important it is to curb anything negative.  No matter how hard it is at the beginning to change that habit, that addiction to processing, the changes you see develop as a result will be inspiration enough to continue on.  Day by day it becomes easier to let those irritations not weave their way back in and you will see a new habit evolve, a healthier way of life that leads you to the things you want and the things that are meant for you.

Are you seeing the light?  That’s really what it’s like, the positive aspects of life bring a lightness to your life because you are allowing the weight, the heaviness of the negativity to be lifted from you and in reality all you’ve done is allowed your soul its freedom.  The soul, your inner spirit seeks purpose, connection, and an environment that inspires and cultivates your higher calling.  Imagine a place where all things are possible, this is it!

Why do we not embrace it?  Simply because it is the ego that keeps you immersed in a negative, fear based state, all for the sake of controlling you from believing that you can access this place, this state, this happiness.

ego-soul

I’ve always heard that comparison and it had been difficult for me to recognize/differenciate the two (ego & spirit), I didn’t feel like there was any power struggle actually going on, at least nothing that I could easily identify.  When the ego is trying to control though I’ve learned to recognize how it affects me physically and emotionally which shows up like stress, anxiety, a general feeling of disarray in my thoughts which is ultimately resistance between the two opposing sides.

I think how it presents itself is different in everyone.  We are all unique so it makes sense that it’s not a one-size-fits-all kind of answer or solution, it’s just a matter of raising your own awareness.  It’s not like being able to see the difference between colors of black and white but that is how opposing these two really are.

Ego (the brain) wants to rule because it knows, it knows better, it knows all and who’s going to argue, it’s gotten you this far hasn’t it?  Egotistical tells you how great you are, how much you deserve and where you should be.

Spirit (the soul) doesn’t want to rule anything, it wants to give you free will, to choose what your heart desires, to choose what nourishes and feeds your inner glory.  That’s it.

My four steps to counteracting my ego when I notice physical or emotional changes in my thoughts and energy are awareness, choice, acceptance and faith.

Awareness:  Learn to recognize how your external world affects your internal thoughts and energy, what triggers the negative and what cultivates the positive.

Choice:  You always have a choice!  The reasons you choose to tell yourself as to why you can’t do or change something is always prompted by the ego.  Choose to shut it out.  Choose to find greater understanding and awareness, it will show up because once you’ve made that choice you are now open to those answers.

Acceptance:  It’s not always easy to accept the things you cannot change but accepting that you don’t know everything all the time, that maybe some things you’re not supposed to change, sometimes you’re supposed to adapt.  Maybe the Universe has a different plan!

Faith:  When you fall into a dark place sometimes it’s hard to have faith, this is where I think acceptance is linked.  Everything happens for a reason, even things you don’t understand, the bad things too and how could there possibly be a reason for them?  The understanding comes later, sometimes years later but I think it occurs when you’ve made that shift, embraced that which you don’t understand but made it through the storm anyway.

These “Lessons of the Tao” which I became aware of, with great thanks to Dr. Wayne Dyer (1941-2015), help to keep things in perspective for me;

  • Change your thoughts and your life will change
  • There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way
  • You accomplish much by trying less
  • Trust in others to know what’s best for themselves
  • Live without attachment and be generous
  • When you have a choice to be right or to be kind, always pick kind
  • Rather than looking for miracles, see everything as a miracle in your life

Change the Way You Look at Things

The Things you Look at Change!

I know I’ve written about this very topic before but sometimes reminders are necessary, especially for me. When you get too involved in an emotion you end up creating the outcome of least desire whether you realize it or not. Law of attraction says what you think about most is what grows, so even if it’s something you don’t want when you give it more of your energy you end up keeping it alive and feeding it which helps it continue to grow and be a daily part of your life.

I do this at times and even though I realize I am feeding the wrong emotion and desired outcome sometimes it’s hard to turn it off. When you have an issue that weighs on your mind I think it’s natural to think about it more than needed and sometimes overthink it which brings about more of what you don’t want.

Do you ever end up over-analyzing, over-thinking, over-obsessing about all the wrong things only to realize in the end that your worry seemed to magnify your issues more than anything else? Does all that you were worrying about ever manifest the way you envision it? Most of the time it ends up being useless worrying that has caused the extra stress, usually everything works out ok and the thing that was stressing you out the most was you.if-you-change-the-way-you-look-at-things-wayne-dyer

It’s so important for me and you (if you get stuck like this) to change the way you are looking at things because I can guarantee you every time I’ve done that it’s actually changed the way things are. Not for any other reason than the fact that I’ve removed the energy I’m giving to what I don’t want and putting it in the direction of what is better for me.

Get out of your own way by changing the way you are looking at things so that your life can start to fall into the places it’s meant to be. When you do this you will be amazed at how things change, it allows the things that were of such bother to you to drop in importance reducing what you don’t want and increasing the more positive aspects of your life so they can flourish as they are supposed to.

I know this sounds like it’s not really possible, especially if you have some huge issues going on but really when you take away the energy and time you put into the things you don’t want they start to diminish, maybe not immediately but over time (and I don’t mean years). In addition to the outward effect when you remove your energy from what you don’t want, you start to feel lighter and happier because not only was your energy feeding that negativity but it was draining you as well.

Freeing up the space of positive possibilities attracts more of the options you desire because as you move into a better space of thought you become more aligned with the Universe and your personal power and that is the energy you want to feed and grow.

It is only when you are in alignment with all things positive that your life will start to gravitate in the direction you desire. Learning to be aware of your thoughts and feelings so you can identify when you step onto the path of negative thinking will be a strong ally on your road of life and one you shouldn’t do without.

Always remember YOU are in control on what you think and what you feel, you can change both whenever you want simply by shifting what you are giving energy to with your focus. You can change anything aspect of your life you want simply by deciding to and at any moment. The questions you have to ask yourself are;

  • Are you willing to walk away from the darkness that hides your negative moments?

and

  • Are you ready to step into the light that catapults you to your positive life?

If you’ve truthfully, deep down in your soul answered yes to both than you’ve taken the first simple step, the decision. That’s usually the hardest part to address because while everyone wants to be happy, not all are ready to accept it without skepticism or questions.

It’s a charmed life, be open, ready and grateful to live it?

more life to live

Follow Your Vision

What You See Is What You Get!

What you think about most is what you are embracing and implanting into your subconscious and conscious mind whether you realize it or not. The key to cultivating positive experiences in your life is to begin cultivating them with your thoughts.

Your self-talk is important, you must first believe in yourself, you must have faith that the Universe has a plan for you and then allow that plan to manifest knowing it is for the betterment of your higher self.

follow your dreams

Having a clear vision of what you expect to see manifest in your life is the ace in your pocket. My vision has always been clear to me, sure there are some alterations along the way that change the course at times but I never get so far off that I lose sight of my vision. There are times when my vision changes in perspective, sometimes life’s joys and/or upsets change the view but I believe that these changes are meant to be, they are meant to shape you so you fit into the Universe’s plan for you.

What you See is What You Get:  I think it is important to really allow this thought to sink in.

You can tell yourself what you want to see but if you really don’t believe it yourself then you can forget about seeing it manifest in your life. It’s not just about saying the words, it’s about taking the actions making what you see start to take a form. You must know that feeling when you begin taking action of any task, you start to see it take shape and before you know it you’re half way to completion. That feeling is inspiration, followed by momentum to see it through and what follows are the rewards of success for your accomplishment. This is the format that exists in everything, it is purely passion, passion to move in desired direction, passion to power through the rough patches, passion to pursue that which you know you can attain and passion to succeed. You must know you that you can do anything you put your heart and mind into.

Sometimes getting to the other side of success can feel overwhelming, sometimes enough to make you question your abilities and/or goals:

  • What do I do now?
  • How do I maintain?
  • Have I reached my potential?

Here’s what you do:

  • Enjoy it
  • Relax a little
  • Marinate the next ideas of change you desire

There’s always another mountain to climb, there’s always another challenge ahead and there is never a dull moment because inspiration is always available. Don’t paint yourself into a corner and say there’s no way out, there is always a way out, you will find your best answers within your imagination.

Imagination is not just for kids, the only reason kids access is more is because they aren’t jaded, they are uninhibited and unwilling to accept that there is something they can’t do or try.

I think a lot of us limit our vision because life itself seen through the eyes of negativity is clouded but when you change that view and realize that there are no limits I think you would be amazed at what you can accomplish!

I Imagine!

Manifesting Your Future

You have to start somewhere, and your imagination is full of all the ideas you really want but may believe aren’t available to you, but they are!

Don’t cut your ideas off simply because you feel they aren’t options, honestly if they are imagined ideas then they aren’t currently happening, right? So what’s the worst that can happen if you entertain those ideas, they don’t occur? So then you’re still right where you are, but…….what if they do happen? How great would that be? There is not a downside as far as I see and you just might get what you want.

So what would you imagine? I know when I imagine things I want to see manifest in my life they are never limited and always seem like a magical gift. I think that you need to have big ideas and big dreams because when you are in your imagination you are allowing your highest self the chance to have a voice. With all that life has going on for each of you through difficulty or success that often quells the voice of your highest self, especially during the more challenging times. I believe that happens not because you aren’t honoring or loving yourself but because some experiences take more of you with them. All experiences change you, either for the better or the worse, they may place you in a holding pattern until you decide which of those paths to take.

If you were back in the days of childhood what would your inner voice say then? What would you imagine? As kids we have all sorts of dreams, imaginations that have no limits and just because you’ve aged doesn’t mean that the opportunities are lost. Why not allow that inner child of yours to have a little input in your adult mind, just for a few moments. Try it!

I Imagine! What’s there in your thoughts of imagination? I can tell you there are many things I’ve imagined to occur that I’ve written down and forgotten. I’ve been doing a lot of cleaning out as of late and come across a few of them, only to realize that most of them (if not all) have been fulfilled. I’ve found that while it’s great to have a focus, a determination of all that you want to see manifest in your life and keep it in your thoughts consistently. It’s also important to put it out into the Universe like a balloon sailing in the sky, it’s important to let it go and gain its own momentum and life force. It’s not that I’ve forgotten these parts of my imagination but I put it out there, let it go and lived my life going in the direction of that life force and the Universe responded, not because I was especially deserving but because I did the work, I believed and I let it go. Everything will happen as it’s supposed and when it’s supposed to but you need to trust in it and have faith.

Try it out, allow your imagination the opportunity to have a voice, write down the things you want to see happen in your life, the most important thing to be aware of is that anything of negative intention will NEVER manifest the way you want. Anything in your imagination comes from a place of light and positivity, anything negative comes from the ego, not your imagination.

If you want to see something positive manifest from your imagination, it needs to come from a place of good intention, intention that brings only positive outward effects to all those around you. Believe in it, let it go and trust that it will gain its own life force and that the Universe will fulfill it in your life!

The Power of the Positive Mind

Will Change Your Life!

The power of the positive mind can achieve and/or change anything when the belief that there can be no other outcome is fully embraced.

If I have a vision of the outcome I see/seek it is quite difficult for anyone to sway my thinking from that outcome and believe me I’ve had others try, they want to be the voice of reason for the purpose of preventing me from feeling so let down when it doesn’t happen. Has this ever happened to you?

You are the one that decides which side of the light you intend to stand for, belief or disbelief and the key to igniting your belief lies within your subconscious.

  • Where do you really see the outcome to your experience going?
  • Do you hope and believe for the best but subconsciously expect that it won’t go that way?

The answers to those questions have to resonate within your soul without external influence and no matter what you may say out loud to try to convince yourself otherwise, your inner voice always knows the truth. If your subconscious mind does not believe, your conscious mind does not stand a chance.

every thought we think

My daughter was born 3 ½ months premature and weighed 1 lb, 7 oz, she didn’t look much bigger than a pound of butter. I understand the doctors have to make you aware of all the possible outcomes and right away it was 50/50 chance that she survive 12 hours, the next day it was the same chances that she survive the next 24 hours, and then 48. Following that were the possible outcomes of life challenges ahead and there were still challenges that would present while she was in the hospital but even though there were bumps along that road I knew in my subconscious that my belief was true. She was coming home and I could envision it easily, for me there was no other outcome and there wasn’t. She’s 15 now and has some challenges but she’s here and we have a lot more time ahead of us to change even more outcomes ahead.

I firmly believe that my unwavering positive thoughts toward her coming home had been the trailblazer for affecting this outcome. It’s the Law of Attraction, what you think about expands, your thoughts are manifested into your reality simply because there is no room for any other outcome! You must believe! It’s not just that I thought it and it became the reality, I made room for it and I continued on with my plans for her expectant arrival home.

I could have easily focused on the reasons as to why she was born premature and let those be the dominant thoughts in my mind, place blame and say “why her, why me”, but how exactly is that going to help my daughter? Not at all!

She needed as much positive energy and thoughts as I could give her and “what if” didn’t matter anymore because here we were, going forward, seeking to change how things were going to turn out was the only option, going back was not. There was no way I was just going to accept something without even taking a shot at trying to change it especially with the beliefs I felt so deeply.

There was another woman across from me in the hospital that also had a premature baby and I noticed something one day that re-affirmed my thoughts about my energy as well as others and how we can easily affect others with it. While I was in the Neonatal nursery one day I saw and said hello when she arrived, she went over to sit with her baby as all the mothers would do. The situation and environment is not easy because your maternal instincts are to protect and nurture your babies but you can’t because they are too tiny and need the doctors.

I hadn’t heard any of the monitors go off for her baby until she arrived, she was rubbing his tiny head and crying (which is understandable, it is a difficult situation) but later on she said she’d heard me talking to someone in the hospital room we shared and asked how I could be so positive given the situation. What I realized from her question was that she wasn’t able to feel the positive thoughts, she wasn’t able to see ahead and realize there was no other than a positive outcome and was therefore transmitting that energy into her baby’s energy causing him to stress.

Babies don’t know but they feel and even though pre-teens, teens and adults can recognize or understand it a little better we are still susceptible to absorbing the energy others are transmitting.

Energy is very real and very powerful and when used wisely can be a positive force in any experience.

If you want to effectively change an outcome you have to put all your energy into it and if you have half your energy in the past it’s of no use to you because you can’t change it, all you can do is move forward and see the outcome you want happen.

I think many of us do not realize how much power lies within us to effect change in our lives, through behaviour, attitude, thoughts and actions. Think about something that you excel at whether it is work, sports or play and when you are “in that zone” you are tapped into the Universe and all its positive power and since you are excelling it’s quite likely that you are in a state of oneness and peace with your inner core.

So let’s use sports as an example because as an eternal athlete at heart I can better articulate my point. I think any sport whether it is single player or a team requires you to be able to see the picture moves ahead to effect the outcome you want whether it is sinking that putt or the tic-tac-toe team play moves to put the puck in the net.

I realize not every single shot works in that same way because of course then there would be no competition and the games would be boring. Everything cannot perfectly fall into place every time and the reason it doesn’t is because not everyone believes in their subconscious that there is no other outcome, sometimes the negative thoughts get in and mess things up. If you are going to put up any walls in your mind and in your life, put them up against the negative.

The positive mind has no room available for anything other than positive thoughts and positive thoughts produce positive outcomes. If you want to effectively change and/or re-direct your life you must believe in your thoughts, yourself and the only outcome you are interested in seeing.

Keep your subconscious in check……….there is no other outcome!

Do I Know You?

I Think We’ve Been Disconnected

Not all relationships are meant to stand the tests of time, some are a mere passing on the road of life, some are to assist with lessons and some are the lessons. Learning to understand and differenciate the two is a life lesson in itself, honestly I think the difficult stuff is there to keep us humbled so we don’t get egos that are wildly overgrown.

its sad

It’s sad when people you know become people you knew, sometimes others don’t realize you’re a lifer or you don’t realize they are a lesson.

Your path was in place long before you arrived and you navigate without knowing the plans ahead not just because you are in search of the answers but in search of your best life, which I refer to as the charmed life.

If you are influenced with a positive mindset then you are chasing your dreams, looking to create and cultivate positive change that enhances the lives of everyone you touch.

If you are influenced with a negative mindset then you are expecting your dreams to chase you, believing positive change won’t happen and not wanting to do the work.

Both of these mindsets influence and/or affect your relationships and the conversations within those relationships. It takes authenticity to build and maintain relationships and only one moment of disrespect to hurt them. Left unaddressed that dent in the armor of the relationship can cause distance and from distance comes disconnection and disassociation.different paths

Your path is meant for you, some people will stay and travel on it with you because their path is running parallel to yours, maybe you each have something to offer, inspire or motivate the other. These are spiritual agreements and those choices were made consciously prior to your arrivals. Challenges arise when forks in the road present themselves, decisions are required and your free will is granted, depending on the spiritual agreements with those on the parallel paths this may be where a disconnection occurs, not that there is some sort of ending but rather another beginning that only you have chosen to take. Sometimes you meet up again much farther ahead because the two paths cross again and depending on the disconnection, maybe you pick back up where you left off or maybe you don’t. I have more in-depth thoughts about those that come into your life on a previous blog “In Your Life for a Reason, Season or a Lifetime”.

The experiences you have when off the beaten path are needed to build inner strength, wisdom and courage for the next leg of your journey. There are sometimes hills to climb and storms that need to pass but eventually the sun comes out again.

Every once in a while you see a signpost on your path, a déjà vu of sorts, that reminds you of past relations and experiences. These signposts have been strategically placed, maybe a similar experience is ahead on your path that requires your awareness so you can be prepared.

The sum of all your experiences continue to shape who you are daily, if you allow the negative to live in your energy you can expect that nothing will go your way until you shift it.

What Have You Done For You Lately?

Living your Dreams?

At the end of the day you have to ask yourself, have I done all that I need to go in the direction I seek? You get out of life what you put into it, nobody is going to get their dreams served to them on a platter, if you want it, you have to put in the effort.

In order to live the life you dream of having you have to take the steps and by steps I don’t mean just saying it out loud, your actions are needed to reinforce the dream. You can’t just sit back and think to yourself “well I stated my intentions, I’ve done my part” but if that were enough then why is everyone else working so hard to achieve their goals? It’s because that’s what you have to do, anything worth having is definitely worth working for!

This applies to all aspects of life, not just your career, any area that you want to manifest abundance in requires your vested interest.

Abundance:  a large amount of something : an abundant amount of something

When you understand that abundance in any area of your life exists because you’ve tuned into it, made room for it and welcomed it in then you will find that same abundant life continues to grow and becomes more and more abundant. You cannot be tuned into abundance without having the basis of gratitude energetically operating in your state of being and it is through gratitude that abundance is cultivated.

A positive mindset is the key to any manifestation in life that you desire and “oh the places you will go” when you believe and see how it works, sometimes it can even seem surreal.

If you are not there it’s not because there are too many obstacles in your way, it’s because you’ve made room for there to be obstacles and you’ve told yourself that they are too big for you to get around. The only reason life goes in a negative direction is because your mindset is also feeling negative, like attracts like. If you feel you don’t deserve to be happy, the “Law of Attraction” responds and gives you more of what you’re thinking “I don’t deserve to be happy”, maybe time to change that tape for the positive!

You have to get out of your own way to allow good things to happen for you, you can’t allow any negative thoughts to impede you from your goal. If the negative finds an opening it will try to sift its way into your thoughts, recognizing and evicting it in that moment is your defense, use it well and a lot if you have to.

Too many times we allow others to define us but we are not defined by them or their thoughts, we are defined by our words and subsequent actions or inactions. How or what someone else feels or says about you doesn’t define who you are, it defines who they are and is very good insight into how they feel about themselves.

You have your own personal power at your disposal at any time to help you attain your dreams, think of it like global warming but instead it’s known as universal power and unlike global warming it’s a positive thing that we all have the ability to tap into.

Once you are “in the zone” there isn’t anything you can’t achieve. I’m sure you’ve had one of those days where “you know, you rock” and get everything that you wanted done and then some, days like these provide us with our own personal rewards of achievement for doing well and you should be proud of yourself.

It is that wave length that lets you know you are plugged in so take advantage of those days when they happen, use them to tackle fears you might not otherwise do on an off day because once you find the way to build on that momentum you will find that momentum comes along a lot more often.

The bottom line is if you want something go after it:

  • don’t defeat yourself before even trying
  • don’t convince yourself you can’t do it
  • don’t see any other outcome other than success

When you think, believe and see what you want as the outcome, there is no room for any other outcome other than that which you see and no other outcome will occur. When you allow and make room for what you see and feed it with positive thoughts the “Law of Attraction” responds and gives you more of what you’re thinking “I will see what I believe will occur”!

anything you want, you can attain
