But I Meant Well.

October 24, 2019

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

English proverb

How many times have you heard someone say, but I meant well. As a parent, you always want the best for your children and family right? If you own a business, you always want to make the best decisions for your employees, right? In government, the elected officials always want to do their best for the people, right? In corporations, they want to do and be their best for their stake holders and provide quality products and or service, right?

 

I could go on and on listing ways that we all start out with good intentions, however if you do not fully understand what the impact will be, your intentions will backfire and turn into something that is corrupt, hurtful, harmful, and even dangerous. Your intentions must be grounded in spiritual law and sound wisdom. Every intention must be a conscious choose for the greater good of all. The world is in a state of turmoil and upheaval because of intentions based on greed, and the believe that you and I are separate. Families try to protect themselves or make choices based on

 

ignorance. This can be very harmful, even though your intentions weren’t meant to be. Our intentions must be based in love. They must be for the greater good. Things are in chaos due to the lack of understanding, consciousness, compassion and believing that nature is outside of us.

True good intentions, are paved with a holistic approach. It is the golden rule. What we do to one, we do to all. Your intentions are powerful. Your impact is even more powerful. Find kindness, strength, love, compassion, beauty, and virtues of grace in your heart to open yourself to goodness.

 

Good intentions come from the heart, not from the head.

Being of service and keeping yourself humble will be sure fire way to guard against good intentions turning toward hell. Keep the journey onward and upward.

 

 


Give A Hand Give A Life

June 5, 2019

“Alone we can do so little, but together we can do so much.”

                                                                     Helen Keller

Last August, I got a call from my ex-husband. We communicate once in awhile, usually over something having to do with our grown kids. We have been divorced for over 25 years. It was a friendly parting. In other words we split on good terms. Well, he called me because he needed some help. He was going through some tough financial times and asked if I had any work that he could do in exchange for living quarters for a few months.

Being a master carpenter that he is, I did need a new front porch deck since the old one was rotting. So, I agreed. Now it is June and the deck is finally finished. He did an amazing job.

Why I am posting this is because, we all go through some tough times and need a little help from our friends at times. I’m not suggesting that you invite someone into your home who is abusive or harmful, but we can offer a helping hand to those in need. It goes a long way. I was able to find him some work through a mutual friend and now he is able to get back on his feet.

Don’t get me wrong. It wasn’t easy for me to share my space with him all the time. Sometimes it was damn hard! But I opened my heart to someone in need and I’m so happy I did. If you want more compassion in the world today, you must be the change you want to see. It isn’t always convenient but it is a practice. Where can you open your heart to help someone? We can do so much with a little help from our friends.


Don’t Leave Me Out!

May 22, 2019

 

Are your thoughts and words supporting you and creating a beautiful vision for your future or sabotaging you and keeping you a victim of your past? Words change worlds and make the invisible, visible.

As humans, our need to connect and feel like we belong is more important than anything else. When we don’t feel like we belong, we don’t feel safe, when we don’t feel safe, there is no trust, and when there is no trust, we protect ourselves and shut down.

When we shut down, there is no room for growth, the ability to learn or create. It feels like a pit in your stomach, like an unspoken entity that wants to be heard but you’re too afraid or don’t know how to talk about it.  Our emotions go into overdrive, fear sets in and our nervous system triggers the fight, flight or freeze responds. You’re in pure survival mode. Our amygdala gets hijacked and our brains are up-regulating stress hormones which compromises our immune system, causing dis-ease.

As opposed to when we feel safe, there is a feeling of openness and trust. The energy is completely different. There is a coherence between the heart and the brain which allows for cooperation, sharing, compassion and growth. We are able to navigate the uncertainties of life with faith and courage. When we feel safe and connected, we are building, expanding, developing, celebrating and creating possibilities that we didn’t see before. We fall in love with life!  The hormone oxytocin, the love hormone is oozing from our hearts.  Trust is generated by our pre-frontal cortex or the executive brain. The ladder is generated by our primitive brain, or the limbic brain. This is the shift we need to make so we can evolve from the survival mind-set to the creative mind-set.

Our words and the energy behind them can make someone feel included or excluded.

So, the question now is how do we transform a conversation so we can communicate on a higher level to open up the connections with ourselves and others.

It’s by making the invisible, visible. We must become aware of the feelings that are being triggered inside of us and the chemical cocktails we are either up regulating or down regulating within our bodies through the language of conversations.


Shaken to Awaken

October 4, 2018

“Problems cannot be solved with the same mind set that created them.”

Dr. Albert Einstein

 

You have to be hiding under a rock today not to know what’s going on in the news these days. The turmoil, upheavals, resistance, anger, disruptions, disputes and chaos that is happening environmentally, politically and personally is causing us all to be shaken to awaken.

These are the days of miracles and wonders, these are the days were you must shift to a higher level of thought. Together we can rise above the mindset of limitation, lack, fear and all the old beliefs which you were downloaded with. In order to find love, peace, joy, tranquility, compassion, abundance, respect, reverence and all good things, you must take responsibility for your part in this world.

To navigate through uncertainty, you must have faith and courage that everything is for your higher good. You are being shaken awake. You can no longer deny the dysfunction that is causing so much dis-ease in the world. So I am asking each and everyone of you who is reading this to step out of your old paradigm and awaken to your highest potential, to raise your vibration and join me to make a difference in the world. Together we can shift to a higher vibration!


The New Normal

January 18, 2018

What is the new normal? We hear this term a lot on the news lately. With raging fires out on the West Coast, mud slides, category 5 hurricanes decimating Puerto Rico and other parts of the world and other climate changes, it seems like this new normal is rather bleak. And now we have missile alerts  frightening us into believing we are goners? How are these horrific things impacting how we live?  What is normal anyway?  Do we really just accept this as the new normal?

It seems like everything has become distorted, upside down or backwards. This new normal that we are being confronted with is all about living in a more fear based world. That is not what I would want the new normal to be. Let’s face it, everything changes. Nothing stays the same. Change is the one constant we can count on. However I envision a world that is evolving toward good change, positive change and progress change. We are either constructing or destructing. If we believe that we are helpless and have no power over our thoughts, feelings and action, we will be the victim of these fear based changes. There are many people doing tremendous work toward good things to improve our world. When we stay in faith and have the courage to be the change we want to see in the world we can begin to see the new normal as moving toward peace, compassion, kindness and love.

That diversity can be recognized as a powerful asset rather than a separation to divide. Let’s open our minds and hearts to all. Let’s be the change we want to see in the world.

How do you see yourself being a contributor to the new normal? What can you do to make a positive difference?

If you need some help to find out what your purpose and vision is, lets talk?

 


Be A Light

May 26, 2017

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.

Will You Adapt to a New World?

August 5, 2015

Have you noticed the changes around you lately? Where are the butterflies? I’ve seen less than a hand full. Where are the beneficial insects, like the praying-Mantis and lady bugs, not to mention the bees?  Climate change is happening, although many people still don’t want to acknowledge it. What kind of world will we be living in if we do not make some conscious decisions on how we live our lives?

The divine feminine is a part of our consciousness and earth. She is assisting us to open our hearts and minds and think like the native Indians did. Sustainability, preservation, and compatibility. This will help us adapt to a new world filled with abundance for all. The sacred feminine energy is emerging, assisting us to recognize the integration of all living and sentient beings. The symbol of the Goddess is about balance, healing, and renewal.

So what kind of world do you want to live it? One filled will beauty, love, and compassion, or one of darkness and despair. How will you adapt to a new world?

” The life force of the divine feminine is the spark that will help us ignite a deeper spiritual, technological, and biological transformation. Her sustainability is our survival.”

Gloria Amendola
