Just Be Nice

July 15, 2020

I love Sunday Mornings. There seems to be this extra amount of peacefulness and serenity on Sunday mornings. Maybe it’s just me, but that’s how I feel. This Sunday, I woke up around 5:30 AM  and felt so calm and tranquil. I was sort of in a lucid dream state, mesmerized by a vibration of love, light and angelic beings. It was so sweet. I have a few rituals I do every morning, like journal, meditate, prayer, stretch, feed the cat, feed the birds outside, water the garden and then make a cup of coffee and read something spiritual. Sundays, I take the time to read longer. I am reading John E. Fetzer and the Quest For the New Age. It is fascinating!

So, then I decided that I was going to take my bike to the supermarket to purchase some garlic, which I needed for a recipe I was preparing for that evenings dinner. I got on my bike and headed to the store which was about a mile and a half away. A little way down on my journey, I saw a young man walking in the opposite direction I was heading, we caught each others attention and greeted each other Good Morning. The weather was simply gorgeous! After another block I noticed I forgot my mask! Oh No! I still haven’t got in the habit of bringing it every where. So, I turned back to go home to get it. That’s when I encountered this young man again. He saw me and I mentioned to him that I forgot my mask and have to go home to get it. He said, no, you don’t have to do that. I have an extra one. He was so nice. He gave me a fresh package, not even open.

He insisted I take it. He was so kind. Then he said here I have this pair of socks, again a package not even opened. I said no thank you, that you are so nice but you should give them to someone else. Again he insisted. He said they were meant for me. He was an Angel, sent at the perfect place and the perfect time. I was so happy and grateful for his presence. BTW, he was a Black Man. Which shouldn’t matter, and doesn’t matter to me. The only reason I am mentioning it is because, if one act of violence can stir so much attention and disruption in our world, One act of kindness, can and should create attention for peace, love and compassion. I just didn’t record this act of kindness to broadcast it on the news and social media. However it needs to go viral! I wanted to give him a big hug, but we both knew that wouldn’t be wise during these times, so we bumped fists. Did I attract this soul by my high vibration I was feeling this morning? Was he really an Angel? Was it a coincidence? I don’t know. All I know is that he was nice and nice speaks volumes. The more you can get into alignment with love, light and compassion, the more kindness will spread. What can you do to share kindness? Just be nice!

With Gratitude,

Monica

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.


Shed It and Forget It

January 23, 2019

 

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

My most peaceful time of the day are early mornings. I like to get up before dawn. There is a silent magic in the air and I feel closer to source energy when things are quiet and still. I meditate, journal, pray and stretch my body to release any stiffness from sleep. Once the day gets going, boy it is full throttle. Clients, appointments, calls, setting up programs, talks, meetings, shows and on and on…..

I have learned over the years that the more I cling to the things I want to happen, in my time, I am in for a rude awakening. It only causes me to feel horrible. So my mantra for the New Year is Shed It and Forget It. Surrender, let go, release, shake it off and give it up. The more I do this the lighter I feel. The pressure is off. I take full responsibility to do what I set out to do with love, and my highest intention and leave the rest up to Source.

If you’re feeling stuck, frustrated, confused, angry, guilty, shameful, jealous, resentful, stressed, anxiety, depressed, hurt or any negative emotion, you can begin to let go. There is support for you to do this. Please reach out. Choose to be happy, joyful, abundant, playful, compassionate, hopeful, creative, grateful and all the good emotions that will expand your life in a positive way. One day we will have to let go of it all. We can’t take it with us, so why not shed it now?


From Here to Eternity

June 14, 2018

If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow.

Meditation, mindfulness, silence, and being present in the moment are all about quieting the mind and calming the body. If you have never done this, fifteen minutes of meditation can feel like an eternity.

Being still is something that is uncomfortable and foreign if you never were taught to do this. I know I didn’t grow up with parents that practiced this. We live in a very busy world. It is all about go, go, go and do, do, do. However what ever you want to do, be or have will come to you so much easier when we go within and calm your mind. Everything is created twice, once in the spiritual form and then in the physical.There are so many benefits you will get when you begin making a daily practice out of meditating.

I now meditate for fifteen minutes every day and am so much more peaceful, patient, happier and healthier. The things I desire come to me much more effortlessly too. It is as if the struggle has disappeared and I just allow the universe to met me half way in acquiring what I want.

So, if you are ready to be here now but touch the hands of eternity to manifest what ever you want into your life, begin your daily practice of meditation. If you need help beginning this, I would love to be your guide.
