It is so easy to neglect the self, especially if you have never felt valued, loved, protected, nurtured and enough.
BUT—as grown ass adults, it is time to STOP making excuses for why we continue to perpetuate NOT taking care of the self.
This weekend, make sure to take time out to LOVE you. That might mean going to bed an hour early, reading a book, taking a bath, or making yourself some chicken soup. It might mean meditating, journaling, or watching that movie you’ve been meaning to watch, or it might mean finally catching that Yoga class you’ve been meaning to try out.
Inside all of us is a KNOWING.
We know what we need and what we want, but when we are in the habit of IGNORING what we KNOW to be true, our actions follow suit, our life sucks, we feel like crap, and we fall into ruts that grow deeper each passing day.
This weekend make it a point to do something you’ve been meaning to do. FINALLY listen to that KNOWING and HONOR YOU!
Have you known what you wanted...
Love is a choice and a state of being.
Love is an action word as it reflects a nonphysical state that is acted upon by a physical being.
To help us understand what love truly is, it helps to rest one’s mind on the simplicity that abounds in nature.
Today, focus your attention on the beauty of a single flower. Study it. Watch it. Imagine what it feels like to be a single rose or sunflower in a garden of many in a world it does not worry about, unconcerned with what the other sunflowers or roses think.
Do what you can to imagine and connect on a vibrational level to the absolute stillness of that flower.
Just for a few moments, drop your own mind. Drop your thoughts. Drop your worries over your past wounding experiences. Drop your worry and connect to the infinite streams of abundance that is always--and was always about you.
Just for a few moments, become still of mind and milk the experience of love. Milk the feeling of pure acceptance, peace, and stillness that is love.
Life will drag you through the mill, that is for sure.
It is difficult to remember that LIFE is a CLASSROOM and we are here to LEARN all we can before our final physical transformation.
Gratitude is a LIFE GIVING energy and the more grateful we can FEEL in our everyday lives, the LESS we notice B/S.
The more we MILK a sense of WONDER for our MIRACULOUS body, brain, consciousness and connection to all that is, the more we raise our FREQUENCIES and the more we resonate with ABUNDANCE!.
Isn’t it awesome to know that in ANY given moment, we can LEARN TO FLOW OUR FOCUS towards ANY idea or thought and SHIFT our attention from LACK to ABUNDNANCE, and from FEAR to LOVE?
No matter who crappy our day, within us is the POWER to be thankful and GRATEFUL for something and when we CHOOSE of our FREE WILL to CONTROL our stream of consciousness, in that moment, we are MOLDING our FATE.
I think this is something to be TOTALLY GRATEFUL for.
How has GRATITUDE helped improve your life?
It is so easy to forget that within ever cell of our being is the same galactic stuff that makes up the STARS in our sky!
You are LIGHT Dear One!
At your atomic core, you, me, everyone, and everything is LIGHT.
So why is there so much chaos on the playing field of people’s minds?
Why does there seem to be so much fear on our planet?
Why can’t we seem to find the love we seek and instead find unpleasantness no matter how hard we try?
Ahh…Dear Ones…never forget you are both a DIVINE SPIRIT and a HUMAN BEING.
You have come to MASTER the limitations of the survival mechanisms that are the DEFAULT settings of man.
You have come to CHOOSE the LIGHT and to DELIBERATELY mold your CONSCIOUSNESS through the POWER of thought and by way of your DIVINE FREE WILL.
You have come to REALIZE that the mind is both conscious and unconscious at the same time, it is both dead and alive as well.
Dead and alive?
Yes, the mind is programmable and all experiences from childhood have been...
While meditating today, I began envisioning a friend whom I love walking out of the hospital healed, fully recovered, and happy.
Here on Long Island, my family and I know and love a number of those impacted by the Coronavirus. The challenges are real. The emotions are strong and the pull to try and control something I cannot control keeps me on my toes.
Wishing to be a part of the solution rather than the problem, I decided to begin a Prayer Chain for anyone who wishes to offer the names of a loved one they would like me, my family, and those willing to participate to pray for.
Faith has no religion. Faith is a powerful resource fear pisses on when we need it the most.
I believe in unwavering faith and especially when the going gets rough.
I also believe in combined consciousness and in the power of numbers when spirits, hearts, intentions, vibrations, emotions, and desires aligned.
Please feel free to offer...
It can be so HARD to face, but the reality is, not everybody is going to like you, agree with you, validate you, or love you.
When you have grown up feeling like it was your job to make sure everybody else was okay but you—it can be quite the mind-bender when you start to confront the faulty belief that has you unconsciously programmed to believe it is YOUR JOB to get people to like you.
How many of us have been under the illusion that it was the WORST thing in the world to have someone NOT like us?
Crazy, I know!
Turns out—it is TOTALLY acceptable to NOT BE LIKED—and to even be DISLIKED!
It is totally okay to have your neighbor, friend, cousin, and even a significant other NOT agree with you!
It is totally fine to have people NOT like you.
Guess what? Even if people don’t like you, the world continues to spin and the sun still comes out in the morning. To an abused adult...
We all have a miraculous internal guidance system, although many of us have been taught NOT to trust it.
Abused adult children do not always realize how reactive their thinking is or how impulsive their actions can be. For this reason, making sure we ‘think’ before we speak and or ‘do’, is critical.
The amygdala is all about REACTIVITY, anger, survival, fear, abandonment, rejection and shame. Without even thinking, abused adult children can be emotionally triggered and say and do things they would not have done had they known how to or desired to RELAX, MEDITATE, and CONNECT with their HIGHER SELF before reacting to something in their environment.
Think of how many times you have said ‘yes’ when you have meant ‘no’ or how many times you have lashed out, when in hindsight, you had wished you had spoken with LOVE instead of fear, anger, resentment, or shame.
The GREAT NEWS is, we can learn to STOP, LISTEN, THINK, PAUSE, REGROUP, and SOOTHE...
It is really easy to slip down a rabbit hole and forget that we are magnificent extensions of Creator. When we have spent our lives feeling like we are unworthy, it is simple to doubt we are enough. No one would fault anyone who felt sorry for themselves, who had spent a lifetime being abused. How could we? Our brains believe what they have been exposed to. As children, we do not question the rationalizations that show up in our heads that justify why we feel unloved, nor do we have any control over how people love us or don't.
But here is the thing--the universe is a vibrational place and it maintains order by simply lining up like energies with like energies through magnetism.
Why should you care?
You should care because you are a Creator too--and you can shift what you think and in doing so, you shift how you feel, and when you shift how you feel, you shift what you emit, and when you shift what you emit, you shift what you attract, and when you shift what you attract, you shift...
