I Lost My Passport!

November 6, 2019

Focus on the outcome not the obstacle.

Last week I was in Germany celebrating my Mom’s 90th Birthday. It was a great celebration and it was a total surprise to her. People came from all corners of the globe. However, it could have turned out to be a bummer for me since I lost my pocketbook with my passport, wallet, money, credit cards, license and all my identification. I left it on the platform train station seat in Frankfurt. I already boarded the train to Munich when I discovered it missing. Yikes!

How on earth I did that, I really couldn’t say. What I do know is that I had to stay focused and sharp if I wanted to get it back. So, I got off at the next station, took a local train back to Frankfurt and after several attempts to locate it, I went to the information booth and someone had found it and brought it there. OMG, I was so relieved. All my things were still in it!

Although I was stressed and anxious, I kept my mind on my bag and saw it in my minds eye back in my possession. Not for a second would I entertain the thought of not getting it back. Focus on the outcome, not the obstacle..

It is so important to keep your mind sharp and focused on the task ahead. When you’re under stress the best thing you can do is take deep breaths in and out, and keep your thoughts focused on the best possible outcome.

Also, the lesson I learned was I am going use a shoulder wrap to keep my passport and important things in, and stay focused and breath! There’s always a lesson to learn!


Peace Out

May 1, 2019

 

Did you ever feel like you have too much on your plate! That you have so much going on that you just don’t know how you’re going to get it all done?

I was on vacation for 10 days and when I returned home, it seems like I can’t catch up to all the things that are on my to do list. Yikes! That feeling of being overwhelmed can creep right into my brain and disturb my peace of mind.

Thank God I meditate, take great care of my health, eat well, dance, walk, breath, read inspirational books, stay connected to positive people and journal. If I didn’t do these practices every day, I would loss it. Really, there is way too much to keep up with. A day at a time or a minute at a time, sometimes. I know if I try to force things to happen, I’m working too hard. That is why staying connected to a higher consciousness, call it God, infinite intelligence or what you want is oh so vital.

 

 

 

 

It took many years to feel this peace but once you establish the habit, wow, it is my savior.

So, if you feel overwhelmed with too many things on your plate. Pause, take a few deep breaths and relax. Then, surrender it all. Let it all go. It will all get done. And if it doesn’t tomorrow is another day. Find your joy in every moment! It’s there if you look for it!

Peace out!


Stressed to Blessed

February 19, 2019

One of the best pieces of advice I ever got was from a horse master. “Its not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it.”

Stress, it is simply unavoidable, right? I mean it seems like every day there is something that can take you on a journey that disrupts your serenity. Just yesterday, I was working on a power point presentation for a client who needed to insert some videos into it. Now I don’t normally do this sort of thing, however, I thought I would help him out. Yikes, it took me on a road to oblivion, but, I did get it done. Then, I came home to find that my older daughter didn’t clean out the garage like she promised. At this point, I needed to take some deep breaths take a walk, and shake of the frustration of the day. Whew, some days are like this.

 

What takes you over the edge? I know when I get stressed, the best thing for me to do is to do something physical to release the tension in my body, because it becomes physiological. In other words, my bodies functions get compromised and it goes into survival mode, changing the way my organs & cells respond.  It does this so fast that if I don’t change my energy, over time, this can become a repetitive pattern causing all sorts of negative reaction to occur.

So, take a walk, go to a yoga class, dance or take a bike ride. Find something that brings joy to your day.Change the energy before it gets locked into your physiology. Go from stressed to blessed, it feels so much better!


Speaking From the Heart

November 15, 2018

The heart is the perfection of the whole organism. Therefore, the principles of the power of perception and the soul’s ability to nourish itself must lie in the heart.

Aristotle, philosopher, and scientist, 384-322 BC

Stress, anxiety, frustration, overwhelm and dis-ease are at an all time high.  Life is moving so fast and change is happening so rapidly that if you don’t have the tools, strategies and techniques to navigate through all the uncertainty you will wind up feeling totally out of balance. Your heart is more than an amazing pump circulating blood throughout your body. We have discovered that it is a brain that sends signals to your head  letting you know when you are out of alignment by increasing your heart beat, raising your blood pressure and downloading stress hormones that flood your body producing all kinds of negative feelings, thoughts and toxins.

 

90-95% of all illnesses are stress related.  That’s HUGE!!! Really, I can feel when I am getting out of my natural rhythm of joy and happiness. I’m sure you can too. Allow your heart to open. Take some deep slow breaths and slow down. Focus on someone you love and you will begin to sense your heart and mind getting into a coherent state. Practice this often. The more you do the more joy and health you will bring into your life.

The destiny of your life is in your hands. We have the power to change the direction of our  lives by every decision we make.  If we want to live in a healthy and harmonious world, then be conscious of the choices you make. Begin by living consciously.

Choose foods that are healthy and support your well being. You will feel better and have more energy through out the day.

Breath. So many people are not aware of how their breath affects every function in their body. By learning a few techniques, you can learn to relax your body and stimulate your mind by breathing in deeply and exhaling smoothly.

Take the pressure off your mind and get a good nights sleep. Sleep is vital to invigorate your mind-body connection. If too many thoughts are racing through your mind at night, relax and let them go.

Changing these three things in your life will greatly enhance your ability to make healthier and empowering choices in your life.

These are simple changes to make, however the impact they will have on your life will radiate out in to the world and raise the vibration of our earth.

 

 

 

 

 


The Way You Do the Thngs You Do

June 9, 2015

Did you know, that the way you do one thing is the way you do everything. How do you wash dishes, or fold laundry? Or what are your daily habits? Do you eat healthy foods and take care of your body? Do you take time to read and nourish your mind? Or do you rush through your life, not paying much attention to any small act? It’s really the small things that add up to the bigger ones. Are you even conscious of your breath? By taking the time and consciously becoming aware of the seemingly little things in your life, everything will improve. The way you do one thing is the way you do everything. Every act, thought, and feeling, that you have effects your being. They may appear, subtle, minute, and not important, however, they become apart of your makeup. Your character is influenced by the accumulation of all the small things. The way you do one thing is the way you do everything. So examine your thoughts, feelings, and actions. Become the observer of your own life. The next time you wash dishes, or make your bed, or cook a meal, consciously become aware of the process and add a dash of love to any and everything you do. You will be amazed at what a difference it will make in your life. Its the little things, add up to the bigger ones. Everything you do matters!the way you do the things you do
