Monday Morning Motivation
When one door closes another one opens. Unfortunately sometimes people spend so much time trying to get back in the same door they miss the opportunity another door can present. Stop knocking on the door that closed, stop struggling to pull it open again, stop looking longingly at it! Let it go!
There are many doors and opportunities just for you. Focus on the possibility a new door will bring you. Focus on what you want to find behind the door. Focus on getting ready for the new experiences the next door will bring. The Universe closed that old door so you could find the door that is meant for you. Have faith and keep moving forward. Your door is waiting for you!
I lost a friend this weekend that took his own life. As I wrote his eulogy it reminded me of my favorite uncle who went into deep depression after he retired years ago and of George Bailey from my favorite movie “It’s A Wonderful Life”. These men were wonderful men, loved by everyone that knew them. It makes me so sad to think that they had no idea how much they were loved. They had no idea of how important they were or the role they played in the lives they touched.
Do you know how much you are loved? Do you know the role you have played in so many lives? Do you know how precious you are to the the Creative Intelligence that I call God/Divine? Let me remind you that you are Loved, that you matter, that you make a difference. We all have been given this precious gift of Life to walk each other home to ourselves. Do something this week to embrace this truth and help another remember the truth about themselves. It really is a wonderful life!
There is no one in the world quite like you. You may look like others in your family; you may have similar interests as others; you may share some beliefs with others; you may have similar gifts or strengths as others and you may share wisdom with some great teachers but you are the only You. You are one of a kind. You are a unique expression of the Divine.
Come to appreciate your looks, your ideas, your interests, your beliefs, your strengths and your gifts. Embrace everything that makes you you! Stand out. Be strong. Be brave. Walk tall. Speak your truth. Share your gifts. Share your wisdom. Share the wonderful, exquisite expression of the Divine that is you with the world!
If you can see what it is you want you can have it. See if in your mind’s eye, see it as clearly as you can with as much detail as you can. You also have to feel it, you have to believe it and you have to take steps daily to move towards it.
Feel it with enough emotion to move your body into action. It is done to you as you believe so believe with every fiber of your being. Take one step at a time in the direction of your goal, learn and grow with every step and you will know which steps to take next to make you dream a reality.
As 2019 comes to a close and we begin a new year, a new decade think about what the last decade has brought you; the memories, the lessons, the love. What have you learned? How have you grown? Who and how have you loved? What memories have you made? What have you accomplished? Whose lives have you touched?
Think about what you would like to experience in the new decade. What would you like the next year and the next decade to look like? What would you like to accomplish in your health, your relationships, your career, your spirituality, and in the development of your consciousness? In these last days of 2019 take time to reflect on what has gone before and plan for what is yet to be.
The Universe is listening to you and feeling your vibration. It responds to your vibration by bringing experiences of the same vibration to you. If you want to experience specific things do these 3 things. First ask; put it out to the Universe with a pure heart. It is done to you as you believe so the second thing is to believe with every fiber of your being; believe that it is already done. Next fill your mind, heart and body with joyful expectation and open your arms to receive.
There is Magic in the Season, Magic in the Universe, Magic in the Air, Magic in You. Allow it to come to you, through you, from you and multiply all around you. Let it raise your vibration and raise the vibration of the Collective Consciousness. Ask, believe & receive the Magic of the Universe!
Being raised in a family of 9 children and being in the middle of 5 boys I used to think that surrender was a bad word. It was certainly something I wouldn’t do but I have learned that surrender is the bravest thing to do. To let go of the ego and surrender to what the Universe has in store for you takes courage, it takes having faith in something more.
Surrender to the highest part of you, surrender to the Light within, surrender to your heart’s deepest desires, your soul’s yearning for itself and surrender to the gifts the Universe has bestowed upon you. Surrender to the Creative Intelligence that was in the beginning is now and ever shall be world without end. Let it be your guide and watch your life unfold in magical ways.
Your mind, your heart, your light; the things within you not outside you are things that matter. The vibration of these things bring you the experiences in your life. These are the things that bring you heaven on earth and opportunities to learn and grow from. These are the things that are worth your time and your money.
Invest on the inside by feeding your mind, your heart and your light. Feed your mind by reading inspirational, creative, educational material; feed your heart by reaching out and touching someone, by listening to someone, by being there for someone; feed your light by meditating. You can make a difference in your life and in the life of others when you invest on the inside.
You have within you a Unique Light that will lead the way, a Light that will cast out the darkness, a Light that can bring peace and wholeness to you and to the world. Be still so you can See the Light, Feel the Light and Be the Light always!
During this month that celebrates the return of Light let your Light shine bright for all to see. You need it, your family needs it, you friends need it and during these dark times the world desperately needs it now!
You are always immersed and surrounded in Divine Love. It is what you are made of; it is who you are; it is what we all are at our core; it is in everything and everyone; it is the Creative Intelligence that swirls throughout the Universe; it is the Force that was in the beginning is now and ever shall be.
Take time to connect with the Love that you are; let it flow through you, fill you up and surround you in a bubble of Unconditional Love & Radiant Light. Let that Love & Light comfort you, heal you, strengthen you and guide you. Give thanks and know you are always held in the arms of Love.
I love the month of November because in the United States we celebrate Thanksgiving. I love that there is a day designated for being grateful. A day where millions of people from all different walks of life, different backgrounds, different religions, different views of the world are all giving thanks for the blessings in their life. It is one of my favorite days.
It’s easy to be grateful for the big things but it’s important to be grateful for the little things as well. We sometimes take the little things for granted but if we were to no longer have them our life could change tremendously. This week give thanks for the little things in your life, the things that you sometimes take for granted. You may discover those little things are actually some of the most important things in your life.
Seasons change, tides change. life changes. It surprises us; sometimes sweetly and sometimes not so much. It can bring us joy or sorrow, and light or darkness. Life is forever changing; we are forever changing, moving into more of who we are meant to be.
Time moves quickly; days become weeks then months and turn into years before we know it. As we age the years fly by. Our children become parents and our grandchildren seem to grow even faster than our children did. Through all the years, through all the trials and tribulations Love remains. Love can expand, Love can enlighten, Love can conquer, Love can comfort. We may loose our parents, our family or friends but Love remains.
This is your life, your story, your song, your dreams… Make the most of each moment in your day. Be still, ask great questions, listen to the wisdom of the Universe, follow the guidance, be fierce and take actions that move you in the direction of your dreams.
When you look at anyone today try to see who they really are at their core. Try to see the light in their eyes, the joy in their smile, the love in their heart, the wisdom in their mind, the creativity of their imagination, the abundance that flows through them, the perfection of their soul.
Try to see who they really are and you just might help them see it in themselves. You just might increase your awareness of those same things in yourself. You just might make a brighter day for someone and for yourself. You just might make the world a little more beautiful!
A gentle touch, a sincere smile, a kind word, a listening ear, a thoughtful act..all of these things and more express Love. You may not know what someone is going through, you may not know their story but know Love can make a difference. Love can heal a broken heart. Love can touch a soul. Love can fix a wound. Love can erase sadness. Love can comfort one in need. Love can move mountains. Love can change your world and change our planet. Let love flow from you in all that you think, do and say this week!
Love is the way, love is the answer, love is who you are!
In order to reach your full potential you must keep expanding your comfort zone. To expand your comfort zone you must reach, stretch and grow. Try something you have always wanted to do. Try something you have never done before. Do something that excites you or do something that scares you.
Your body does the same thing physiology wise whether you are excited or afraid; the heart races, the sympathetic nervous system increases activity, and the brain begins to signal the increased production of hormones. When you are excited or afraid your emotions become more powerful. The only difference between the two is in your brain. The next time you try something that scares you tell yourself you are EXCITED and dare to reach for the stars. You are of course, made of stardust!
The Divine, the Universe, God, Source, (whatever name you use), is only Love. It only knows Love. It only speaks Love. It only shares Love. Love is the core of what it is and the core of who you are. It only says I Love You!
The Universe is for you, always moving you into more of who you are meant to be. It does not judge you, it does not punish you, it does not wish you harm. It does reflect back to you whatever you are vibrating. Raise your vibration to the energy of Love, surrender your life to the energy of Love and watch miracles shower you with Love.
Today is the first day of autumn here and change is happening. The days are shorter, the nights are cooler, the air is fresher and the colors of the leaves are beginning to change into vibrant shades of red, orange, yellow, pink and gold. It is my favorite time of year!
With all the changes happening in nature we often find changes happening in our own life. School is back in session for many. For some it is the first day of school, whether it’s preschool or college it is a major change for a family. For others it is the first day of work or a new job; a major step in life. It’s also a time for many weddings which will bring on significant changes for a couple. Whatever changes are happening in your life remember change symbolizes growth. If you are changing you are growing and that’s a good thing. Keep growing!
The clouds, the storms, the darkness, all of it is meant to help you reach higher, meant to help you grow. All of it designed to help you remember who you really are: a precious child of the Divine! It may not always feel like it but remember the sun shines behind the clouds, there is calm after the storm, and there is light to cast out the darkness.
Remember to look for the sun, the golden nuggets of wisdom hidden in the storms. Remember to remain calm when things are spinning all around you. Remember to let your Light shine as bright as possible to help you (and others) make your way out of the darkness. Remember to rise above the clouds no matter what.
The quality of your life is directly related to the quality of your questions. We ask questions every day; become aware of the conversation you have with yourself. What questions do you ask yourself? Do they empower you or do they diminish you? Your brain is like a computer if you ask it a question it will search for the answer. Great questions will lead to great answers which will lead to a great quality of life.
Ask questions that bring answers to empower you not diminish you. Questions like; Why doesn’t anyone love me? How come I never have enough money? Why can’t I lose weight? are dis-empowering, they diminish you. You don’t want your brain searching for those answers. On the other hand questions like: What am I grateful for? How can I let more love flow through me today? How can I make my body stronger and healthier today? What can I do today that will take me to the next level? are all questions that will bring answers to take you higher. Ask yourself questions every day that will make you ponder, expand your vision, help you discover something, take positive action or awaken you and you will have a great quality of life.
Today is a new day filled with endless possibilities! Yesterday’s thinking brought you to today but yesterday is over. Today is a new day, a new opportunity to begin a new life. Fill your day with new thoughts, new beliefs, and new actions that will take you to a higher level. As you bring these into each new day you will see your life begin to shift. Believe this shift will bring better days. Believe that today and every day will be brighter.
Gratitude is so important. It is the first step to receiving more. Far too often people focus on what they don’t have. They focus on what is missing in their life and focus on what they lack. Whatever you focus on you get more of so be careful what you focus on.
Spend this week paying attention to what you focus on. Spend time paying attention to all the things you can be grateful for. The simple things that happen every day; a kind word, a friendly smile, a thoughtful gesture. Look around you and notice the beauty of the day. Notice the wonder of the world around you and the wonder of your own being. Give thanks for the miracle of your body, the miracle of the Universe. Give thanks for everything, even the little things we sometimes take for granted.
There is a strength of character to you that you haven’t fully realized yet. There is a depth of love within you that you haven’t tapped into yet. There is a precious gift that only you can give that you haven’t even unwrapped yet. There is something that you are to share with the world that you haven’t touched upon yet. There is a greatness to you that you haven’t discovered yet. Discover your greatness!
Discover the love. Discover the gift. Discover the greatness that lies within. Share all of it with the world. Your greatness is needed in the world now more than ever!
There may be times in your life when you feel confused about something. You may not know which way to turn, which path to take, what to do. This confusion is often because your heart and your head are not aligned. Your heart tells you to do one thing but your head says do something else. This can certainly cause confusion, leave you feeling stressed and stuck.
To gain clarity and clear up the confusion align your heart and your head. To do this you must quiet the mind chatter and the emotions. You must go into the silence of your own being. You have an internal guidance system that knows which way to go. Be patient and be still for as long as it takes for the answer to reveal itself. The answer will come for your soul knows the way. Trust that still small voice and surrender to the Divine guidance for it will align your heart and your head. It will bring clarity, relieve stress and help you move into more.
Nothing in life has meaning except the meaning we give it. We are making it all up. We decide if something is positive or negative; good or bad; valuable or worthless. We decide if an experience is something that we can learn and grow from or if something has wounded us beyond repair. We decide!
Whenever I find myself in an undesirable situation I ask myself “What meaning am I giving this event?” I ask myself “How can I learn and grow from this?” I know that I am giving meaning to each event in my life. The meaning is based on my beliefs which I can change if they do not serve my highest good. What beliefs and meanings do you give the events in your life?
Sometimes we can get bogged down on the physical demands of the day or get caught up going through the motions of the day. There are so many details to take care of, so many things on the to-do list that require attention. The world seems to draw you into the illusion that it is finite, that you are finite, that you are limited.
Take time this week to remind yourself that you are an infinite being. You are made of stardust, you have unlimited possibilities. You are Light, you are Love. You are an intricate part of tapestry we call Life. You are a pure expression of the Divine. Remember, you are a glorious manifestation of the Most High right here, right now!
Reach for the stars, reach for your heart’s desires, reach for your dreams. As you reach you expand your comfort zone, you learn, you grow, you become more of who you are meant to be. As you reach for the stars you align with the Magic of the Universe.
There is Magic in the sky, Magic in the Universe, Magic in following your heart’s deepest desire. Reach for the sky and be among the stars. Reach for the sky and Expect Miracles!
We were visiting family and friends over the weekend with our new puppy, Baxter, and he showed us that angels can show up in many forms. One of our friends has seizures and our puppy seemed to intuitively know this. Our friend had a seizure and Baxter followed him to the bathroom when it was over then continued to follow him for the rest of the evening giving him much appreciated love and attention. It was such a sweet thing to witness.
Be open to the sweet surprises and magical moments where angels gently let you know they are here. They often show up when you need it most and when you least expect it. They show up in a variety of ways and let you know you are loved beyond measure through the good times and the not so good times, through the joy and the sorrow. May angels grace your life every day this week!
Pay attention to the messages the Universe is sending you. Those messages may be hidden so you have to take time to stop, look and listen. Stop the business of the day and stop the noise in your mind through meditation. Look within to find your own knowing, look around you for doors to open and synchronicity to appear. Listen to the guidance from your higher self and listen carefully to every whisper from the Universe.
Your soul is trying to express all you are meant to be. The Universe supports you and provides opportunities for that expression. The world needs the full expression of you. Your life deserves 100% of YOU right here, right now!
Life is full of adventures, full of opportunities to learn and grow. Sometimes things run their course and come to an end. Sometimes the lessons are learned and it’s time to move on. Sometimes there is no more to give, no more to share, and no more to receive.
When one door closes another opens. New adventures await you bringing new roads to walk, new courses to take, new people, places and things to enrich your life. Be open to the new opportunities life brings your way. Every ending means there’s a new beginning. Let it begin.
Life often gives us second chances, even third. Chances to choose a different course, to make a new decision, to right a wrong, to appreciate a moment, to walk a different path, to make the best of a tough situation, to take the high road, to raise your vibration, to turn the other cheek, to learn the lesson, to let grace flow through you, to give the gift, to receive with gratitude, to trust in the Universe, to see the good in all things, to love unconditionally, to allow abundance to flow freely, to light the darkness, to let your inner light guide you, to take the trip, to sing the song, to write the book, to dance like no one is watching…
What will you do with your second chance?
One of the things people often forget to do is let go. They declare who they are, they align with Source, they proclaim what they want to the Universe, they put positive thoughts into their mind, they give thanks for it’s manifestation but they forget one important step: they forget to Let Go.
Letting go is the last step in manifestation and the step people often forget. Your job is to get clear on what you want, align your energy with what you desire, align with Source, know it is done in the mind of the Divine then Let Go. Let go and let the Universe work it’s magic.
When you have a decision to make know that you have within you a connection to the Divine that knows all the answers. You are part of the Divine, part of the Source of All That Is. There is no separation, only Oneness. This Creative Intelligence that rules the Universe can answer any question, it can guide you to the highest and best.
Strengthen that connection to Source and know that all the answers you will ever need are available to you. Ask for guidance knowing the answer will be provided then spend time in the silence so you can hear the answer. You are guided and you know just what to do!
We all came into the world with a Light within, we all came into the world with joy, grace, innocence and beauty! We are all glorious manifestations of the Most High. We all were given the potential to fulfill our dreams, to make a difference, to live a joyful, graceful and love filled life. We are all miracles that come from the Source of All That Is.
Remember the love and wonder of being a child. Remember the simple things that brought you joy. Remember the twinkle in your eyes that light up the room. Remember the beauty that filled your life. Remember the innocence of each new day. Remember the grace of you just being you. Remember, You Are Born of Stardust and You Are A Miracle!
The windshield in every car is much larger than the rear view mirror for a reason. You must keep your eye on the road to see where you are going. Focus on the road in front of you, on where you are going not where you have been. If you keep looking backwards you get lost.
The same is true in life. If you focus on your past you can’t see where you are going. You can get lost in the past, lost in the pain, lost in the mistakes you think you made, lost in the memories. Take the lessons from everything on your journey but keep your focus on where you want to go. The best is yet to be!
I saw my first hummingbird of the season today. It was so tiny and so beautiful! It filled me with wonder to think about the journey it had just taken. It flew all the way from Central America or Mexico to my home just outside Boston. During migration a hummingbird, the smallest bird, flies thousands of miles, their heart beats up to 1,260 times a minute, and its wings flap 15 to 80 times a second. They are truly miraculous!
Sometimes it’s the smallest things that fill us with wonder. Take some time this week to notice the little things. Whether it be a tiny bird, a flower, a lady bug, a spider or an ant just take a look at them and really notice them. Think about how they came to be, what their life is like. Think about the story behind them and let them fill you with wonder.
Today is Earth Day! A day dedicated to nurturing the planet that sustains us. Celebrate Mother Earth by doing something to make this glorious planet a better place today!
The Universe supports you, it holds magic and miracles to help you reach your full potential. The Universe provides opportunities, it opens doors, and brings synchronicity. None of this will come to you if you are not listening to the whispers of your soul.
Make sure you spend time in the silence by meditating or praying. Make sure you feed your mind positive, life affirming thoughts. Make sure you do whatever it takes to stop the monkey mind that can sometimes block the flow of Light, Love and Truth. The Universe is always moving into a fuller expression of Life and it will help you move into a fuller expression of who you are meant to be if you stop, look and listen to it’s whispers!
Whatever seeds you plant into the cosmic consciousness will become manifest. We do not question how the plant springs from the soil we only know that if we plant pumpkin seeds, pumpkins will grow. We don’t always know how our desires and dreams will come to be that is the job of the Universe. Our job is to plant the seeds, water them, nurture them, follow the guidance from the Universe, make sure we don’t step on them as they begin to grow and watch our lives grow into the beautiful manifestations they are meant to be.
I love that we have a holiday to celebrate Love. I celebrate Love and live Love always but in February I devote most of the month to messages about Love for Love is the most powerful force in the Universe. Love is the answer to all your questions. Love is the light that casts out the darkness. Love is what you’re made of. Love is where you came from, Love is who you are and Love is where you will return!
The ABCs of living life to the fullest. Let them remind you of who you are and where you want to go. Let them inspire and motivate you into becoming more of who you are meant to be!
Think about your beliefs and if they do not take you higher, if they do not serve your highest and best, if they block the flow of good, the flow of love, joy or peace then let them go. Release any limiting beliefs and remind yourself that you are a child of the Universe. remind yourself that the Universe is always on your side. Adopt beliefs that take you higher; beliefs that allow love, joy and peace to flow through you. Embrace the beliefs that encourage the flow of good in your life and help you to reach your full potential.
It may not always be easy to use your voice but stand tall and be bold enough to use it anyway. It may be difficult to hear the whispers of your heart so be brave enough to go into the silence of your soul often so it is easier to hear. It may seem impossible to live the life you have imagined but be strong enough to fight off the disbelief and do whatever it takes to live the life your soul desires.
Spend time in the silence of your own heart. Ask yourself these questions. Where do you want to go and what do you want to accomplish in the new year? Write down the answers that come to you. Go into the silence again and ask yourself how you can make those things happen. Listen to the whispers of your soul and write them down. Come up with a few things you can do that will take you in the direction of your heart’s yearning. Adjusting your direction by even one degree and can alter the trajectory of your life forever. Adjust accordingly!
Miracles don’t have to be larger than life, they don’t have to be earth shattering, and they don’t have to be life altering. They can come in all shapes and sizes, they can come in all forms and experiences. They often are sweet, simple surprises that can let you know the Universe is on your side. Pay attention to those little miracles, those small moments of synchronicity that grace your life. Appreciate them for the gifts that they are and you’ll find more coming your way!
Two people can have the exact same experience but give that experience very different meanings. Two people brought up in the same house can use how they were brought up as an excuse for a life of misery or as momentum to live the life of their dreams.
How we interpret the events in our life depends on our beliefs or on our model of the world. Is the cup half full or half empty to you? Do you focus on what you have or on what you don’t have? We are the ones that give meaning to the events in our life. We are making everything up as we go. How do you interpret what you experience in life? Does your interpretation serve your growth or limit you? Examine your beliefs, your model of the world and consider seeing things as an opportunity to grow and live the life of your dreams.
Don’t worry about being like everyone else. Don’t worry about what other people may think. Don’t worry about doing what you think you are supposed to do. Let all that go. Just be you!
Your path is yours alone. Walk it tall, walk it proud, walk it the way that only you can. Be the unique expression of the Divine that is you. Be the glorious individual manifestation of the Most High that you are meant to be today and every day!
Your Light, your color, all your layers add to the depth of who you are. They all make you who you are. They add to the beauty of you and they add to the unique expression of Life that is you. The world would not be the same without you. There is only one you! You bring your own special blend of Light and Color to everyone that you meet and to everything that you do. You really are quite spectacular!
It is a reciprocal Universe; what you put out you get back. The Creative Intelligence that rules the Universe can only bring to you what you are broadcasting to it. Your thoughts dictate your beliefs, your behavior and your vibration. Changing your thinking changes your beliefs, your behavior and your energy or vibration which changes what the Universe brings to you, which changes your life. Place positive empowering thoughts into your mind as often as you can and you will change your beliefs, your actions or behaviors and ultimately your life!
You, as you are, right here right now, are exactly as you should be. Everything is in Divine Order. You are in Divine Order! With all your beauty and wonder, with all your flaws and wounds, you are perfectly you for this moment.
Your scars, your pain, and your brilliant imperfections are all leading you into more of who you are meant to be. Becoming You is a journey and an ever evolving process of discovery. Embrace you, all of you! Love you, all of you!
The Creative Intelligence that flows through everything, everyone, everywhere, all the time, is right where you are. This Intelligence, this Presence, this Force connects us to one another. There is no separation, there is only Oneness. One life does indeed affect another. As we raise our own vibration we light the way for others. As we raise our own vibration we can take each other to a higher place. Do something today that will raise your vibration and uplift another.
You came into this life at this time for a reason. There is darkness, there is confusion, there is love and there is hope. The world needs you to remember who you are and that is a glorious manifestation of the Most High. The world needs you to heal your wounds. The world needs you to share you love in all you do. The world needs you to shine your light to help lead the way. The world needs you to wake up to the magnificence that is you. Right now!!
Growth takes patience, nurturing, light, rain and time. Be patient with yourself, sometimes it’s one step forward and two steps back. It’s all good, you’re just becoming more clear about who you are meant to be. Nurture you, self care is important! Nurture the thoughts of what you want to experience, visualize your life as you want it to be with passion and positive energy. Connect with Divine Light and allow that light to inspire you and move you into the direction of your soul’s yearning. Some days are sunny and some days it rains but we need the rain to help us grow. Time heals wounds, time lifts you up, and time teaches you. In time it will all make sense. In time you will grow into the full expression of the Divine you are meant to be!
Your failures aren’t really failures at all. They can teach you important lessons. They can give you new information. They can help you grow. They can help you understand the world. The can give you valuable insights into who you are and who you are meant to be.
Look at the those things you thought were failures in your life. Did you learn something from them? Did you understand the world more from them? Did you grow from them? Did you gain insights into who you are or who you are meant to be? If not face those things you thought were failures and take the lesson or insights and leave the pain. If you can turn them into lessons you won’t have to repeat them.
There is more to you than your physical body, there is more to this Universe than the eye can see. You are an infinite being of light on a journey. You are here to express and experience the Divine which is Love, Joy, Peace, Abundance, Creativity and Wholeness.
There is an Energy around you, an Energy that flows through you, an Energy that flows through everything in Universe. You are part of that Energy that makes the stars shine and the planets spin. Remember; you are a glorious manifestation of the Most High!
We don’t know how many breaths we get to take. We don’t know how many days we get to explore this glorious planet, we don’t know how many beautiful sunrises or sunsets we get to witness, we don’t know how many souls we get to touch with our love, we don’t know how much time we get to walk this path. We only know we have today. We have this day, this precious gift to breath, to explore, to take in the splendor of the sunrises and sunsets, to touch someone with our love, to walk this path and discover ourselves. We have today! Make today count!
We all go through difficult times. We all fall down. We all try and fail. We all have our moments when we feel stuck in the mud. No matter what has gone on before be like the beautiful lotus and rise up out of the mud, They emerge from the murky waters every morning perfectly clean and spectacular. They are not tarnished by the difficult waters. They reach for the light and share their beauty for all the world to see. Begin your day the same way. Don’t let the darkness keep you down. Let your Spirit rise up, reach for the light and let your beautiful soul shine brightly for all the world to see.
You can’t control the Law of Attraction any more than you can control the sun, the moon or the tides but you can control the Law of Vibration. Where is your energy vibrating. Pay attention to your thoughts and emotions, they dictate your vibration. Are your thoughts and emotions positive and ready to receive? If not work on changing them so you can receive all the Universe has in store for you!
Let go of any worry or fear for fear and worry only block you from receiving. Take a deep breath and relax. When you take a deep breath you let the Good of the Universe flow through you. When you relax you allow doors to open and synchronicity to happen. Breathe, relax and let the Universe guide you into more. It’s all in Divine Order!
Some people are wounded, some people are lost, some people are confused, some people are afraid. We don’t always know another’s story. We don’t always know the pain people have endured. We don’t always know the demons that torment them or the agony that haunts them.
The Universe is for you. The Universe is on your side. The Universe supports you. The Universe will open doors and present opportunities to help you uncover the greatness that is you.

Open the doors, seize the opportunities and let the magic lift you higher. The Universe has more in store for you than you know so have faith and listen to the Universe while it speaks to you!
This is your life! It is your chance to create something. Your chance to express something. Your chance to learn and grow. Your chance to make a difference. Your chance to uncover the brilliant expression of the Divine that is you.
No matter what has gone before in your life. No matter what is going on now, Never Give Up. Hang in there. You have come through tough times before. You have learned from every experience. You have grown through the years. You have more knowledge, you have more wisdom, and you have more experiences with every new day.
It may seem like there are mountains to climb but you have taken many steps before and all you have to do is continue to move forward. Continue to take one step at a time. Continue to learn from each experience. Continue to grow from each lesson life teaches you. Continue to climb the mountain.
You have a depth of love that is unlimited within. You have a wealth of wisdom to draw from. You have new opportunities to learn and grow from every day. You got this!
The way out of any struggle or any problem you have is to go within. You have all the answers and all the guidance you need to find your way out of any issue within you right now. To be able to get those answers and the guidance within you have to silence the mind chatter.
You have to silence the mind chatter that says you are not enough, that you can’t do, be or have what you want. You have to release the limiting beliefs you have about you and the world. Meditation can help you do that.
Develop a meditation practice today. Begin with just focusing on your breath. If your mind wanders, that’s okay just go back to your breath. You can start with just 5 or 10 minutes a day then increase as you can. You will have more peace, less stress and you will be guided to move in certain directions. Synchronicity will appear and doors will magically open.
Go within and you will find your way out of the difficulties in your life!
Letting go may be difficult for you, especially if you like to control things, but there are so many things to let go of. Let go of your beliefs about you that do not serve your highest good . Let go of your beliefs about the world that do not take you to a higher place. Let go of thinking your life should be different from what it is right now. Let go of thinking you have to control everything.
Decide what you want to experience in your life then let it go and let the Universe bring it to you. Have faith that Life is unfolding as it should. Trust in the glory and the power of the Divine.

Your dreams, your deepest desires, those secrets you hold onto in the silence of your own mind; they are there for a reason. They are your inner wisdom talking to you. They are your soul reaching out to you. They are the love in your heart singing to you.

If you want to make changes in your life, if you want to create the life of your dreams you must know your why. Why do you want to do what you want to do? Why do you want to be the person you long to be? Why do you want to have the things you want? Why do you want to change your life? Without a compelling why people tend to stay stuck in their old ways. What will move you to take massive action? What will keep you moving in the direction of your dreams no matter what happens to you or no matter what happens all around you? Find your why and you will find your dreams coming true!
We all have history, we all have stories, we all have wounds and we all have beliefs that we got from those things or perhaps beliefs that came from our family, some maybe even passed down through the generations. Examine your beliefs and ask yourself if those beliefs serve your highest good. Do they take you to a higher place? Are they going to help you reach your full potential? If the answer is no, if they do not serve your highest good, then let them go. Thank them for the lessons you have learned, turn them into pure love and release them into the Creative Consciousness.
Keep only the beliefs that take you to a higher place!
We often are so busy taking care of our family, our home, our jobs, our things, etc that we forget about taking care of ourselves. Sometimes we feel guilty or selfish about taking care of ourselves but we must take care of ourselves if we want reach our full potential. We must take care of our needs and fill ourselves up spiritually and emotionally. When we are full emotionally and spiritually we can grow into the all that we are meant to be. When we take care of ourselves we have more to give to the people and things we take care of. Make sure you take the time to take care of yourself today!

Let them inspire you when you are feeling down. Let them motivate you to be all that you are meant to be.
Through all the gains and losses, through all the ups and downs, through all the joys and sorrows remember to flow with Life.

Everybody has a story and often we know nothing or very little about their story. Some people have health challenges, some have career challenges, some have relationship challenges and others may be experiencing life exactly has they had hoped. No matter what the story is we all have one thing in common and that is the fact that we all need love. Keep an open mind when dealing with people and remind yourself that we don’t always know what their story is but we do know that we all need love.

Two people can have the same experience but give it very different meanings. One can see an event as an opportunity to grow while another can see the same experience as an excuse to remain stagnant. Nothing in life has meaning except the meaning we give it. We are making it all up. What meaning do you give the events in your life? Does the meaning empower you or dis-empower you? Do you see everything as an opportunity to grow or do you use things as a reason to stay in the same place? It’s your choice, choose wisely.

The quality of your life is directly related to the quality of your questions. We are always asking questions, often we are not even aware of it. Become aware of the conversation in your own mind. What questions do you ask yourself daily. Do they empower you or do they diminish you? Do you ask “How can I create even more love, abundance and joy in my life” or do you ask “What’s wrong with me?’ or “How come nothing goes right for me?” Your brain is like a computer, if you ask it a question it will search for the answer. Make sure the questions you ask will bring you answers that will empower you not diminish you.
Take time to fill your heart and replenish your spirit. Meditate, pray, give, share, do whatever it is that opens your heart and nourishes your soul. When you are full it automatically spills over into everything that you think, do and say.
