A One, Two Punch!

hard on oneself

I think one of the biggest challenges people go through is that their too hard on themselves. We beat ourselves up with guilt, shame and other negative emotions. Why do we do this to ourselves? It is because over the years, people have spilled their negative energy on you, their attitudes, their beliefs, their unhealthy self -esteem. Where did they get it? The same way you have been getting it. People have spilled it on them. And on on it goes until you STOP being to hard on yourself.

I should have done it better! I should have passed that test! I shouldn’t have ate that box of chocolates! Some times we screw up, it’s OK! The more we go through this cycle the longer we stay in.

When we learn to love ourselves and embrace our strengths and our weaknesses, we can stop knocking ourselves down and raise up.

We are spiritual beings having this human experience. Being human is to enjoy and celebrate life. To celebrate You! Celebrate being here now! Celebrate all the good things that you’ve done and are continuing to accomplish. Celebrate your lessons in life. Celebrate the little things.

You do not have to try harder, be better, be perfect, or anything other than being YOU!

Your good enough and a child of God! You are a gift, so celebrate that!

Enjoy this video and get inspired to Celebrate Life!


Be A Light

be a light

 

Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate only love can do that.

Martin Luther King

After the attack in Manchester England, another veil of innocence has been revealed. Darkness, sadness and fear tries to creep into our hearts and mind if we allow these senseless acts of violence to penetrate or consciousness. Be the light in spite of what ever and how ever the illusion of hopelessness appears. We are living in times of great turmoil and everything is bubbling up for our healing. All that is inside of us that does not serve us is rising up and out. It is time to take constant vigil of our thoughts, feelings and action. To express them in a healthy way. To invite the shadow side of our subconscious  mind to have a voice and nurture it with compassion and love. To take on the virtues of the divine. To be a light! To shine no matter what. Light and love will prevail. When we confront the darkness with our light, the darkness will give way. The sun always rises the next day.

Life is Like A HeartBeat

February 10, 2016

life is like a heart beatLife is like a heartbeat. We have our ups and downs, our good times and not so good times, our highs and our lows. It is also like the tide, with high tides and low tides. Or it can be likened to the moon with all its fazes as well. There is a rhythm to its beat, and an ebb and flow. When we are balanced and calm we can flow through all the changes of life with ease, but when we allow our emotions to get the better of us, the rhythm becomes more extreme and erratic. These disturbances lead our bodies to get out of sync with the natural rhythm of life itself.   When this occurs, all other systems in your body get effected.

We need the contrast of life to know the difference between each other. We wouldn’t know the light if there was no darkness. What we need to understand is the balance between the two and stay in the dance of the opposites. This is the heartbeat of life.  If we didn’t have this heartbeat we would flat lined ________________________________.

So enjoy all of life’s ups and downs, it is all a part of the rhythm.

 

 

 


A Forgiving Heart

December 22, 2015

forgivenessOne of the hardest lessons, if not the hardest, I had to learn is to forgive. I can still struggle with this lesson from time to time, however, I have learned that the only person that remains wounded is myself if I do not come from a forgiving heart. That pain of holding on to the poison from the venom of hurt, circulates through my veins causing untold misery and anguish.

A forgiving heart allows me to release the person who I believe did me wrong. It frees the space within me to open myself to higher vibrations and tune in to source energy. It is here that greater things become possible.

Jesus on the cross proclaimed “Forgive them, for they know not what they do.”

This is forgiveness.

If people knew better, they would do better. A forgiving heart, will give you the insight to know everything is being worked out for the greater good.

Open your heart to forgiveness and set yourself free.


Finding the Joy in Every Moment

September 25, 2015

Far too many people put off joy for when the circumstances are just right. I hear people say things like, when I’m in the right relationship, then I’ll be happy. Or when I have the right job, or the money, car, education or whatever, then I will allow myself to feel good.  All those things are wonderful, however if we don’t feel joy and happiness now, all those other things will just fill our joy cup temporarily and we will be seeking the next thing to fill the void that is missing from our life. Find the joy in the moment. That is where the magic is. Being happy for no reason other than appreciating life is true happiness. Far too many people worry themselves to death. Worry, only creates anxiety and dis-ease. It never solved any problem and it never will.

There is a story by the Nanticoke Indian Tribe entitled;
The Tale of the two Wolves

One evening, an elderly Cherokee brave told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside of people.

He said, “My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all.

One is evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather:

“Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one that you feed.”

We all have a choice. What are you focusing on? Your energy goes, where your attention flows.  Feed the joy!
