The Journey of life

1) You have to make YOU happy..if you rely on someone else to do this for you, you are in for big upsets.
2) YOU CANNOT CONTROL OUTSIDE CIRCUMSTANCESdo i need to repeat that?? This is our number one biggest hangup…we want someone to do something for us first or be a certain way, THEN we will be happy…ahhh..be happy first and then notice what people do for you and then appreciate them for it and tell them so….
3) whatever you think about you become…if you continue to think the way you have always thought, you will continue to get, what you have always got…
4) Wether you tell yourself you can or can’t, you are always right…
5) Your thoughts are things, CHOOSE THE GOOD ONES!
6) Tell those around you that you love and appreciate them and tell them in a BIG WAY!! You never know when at a moment either of you could be taken out of this physical world!!

Sometimes in the craziness of life, we just need to stop and take a look at where we are, right now, this moment and be thankful. 
Sometimes that is not an easy thing to do, but i PROMISE, if you take that little bit of info and practice it a little each day, you will see a change, a shift, not only in how you think, but how you feel.
I am not into telling stories, not the kind that are full of oh whoa is me. 
What i will tell you is i have had my moments (months) of dispair, anguish, fear, depression, anxiety. There was the grief counseling and the MDs wanting me to take anti-drepressants, i got on line to find “help” groups etc. What i found was MORE of that…and i didn’t want MORE of that…then the pray, pray, pray….then the LORD JUST TAKE ME NOW!!!
What happened next was the answer, Christmas 2007, i was given the most wonderful gift by my friend Mary. Mary gave me a book and a CD. The book was “Power of Emotions” by Abraham-Hicks and the CD was also by the same authors and about death and dying and grief.
While i was reading the book there was a “lightbulb” moment for me…and it is that you have to be happy and joyful WITHIN yourself first, get there by any means. 
You can not be totally in dispair and in a moment be totally happy. It is a process….take small steps.
I woke up each morning and decided to find something, ANYTHING to make me happy, my partner, my son, my home, my studio ANYTHING!!!
On my way to my studio i would look at the sky and say THANK YOU, one morning i noticed new grass on the side of the road and it was the most amazing green…
i started appreciating where i was, not where i had been and then i could see where i was going.

What happened to me will happen to all of us at some time in our lives and that is to lose someone we love dearly.
I lost one of my best friends, my mom. I now realize that when i was in a place of grief and dispair, i wasn’t in a place of connecting with her on a different level. Now i feel her energy around me and it makes me happy! 
If i could go back and change it all?? YES, i miss her physical hugs the most. Obviously i can not and i KNOW she wants us, her family, to be happy and i am living up to that.
..oh mom, in life AND in physical death, you are still teaching me…THANK YOU!! i appreciate you ALWAYS!!

The Bible reveals “The Secret”… WHAT?

The question in my mind and others is, how do religion and “law of attraction” work together?
“Law of Attraction” IS the basis of ALL religion.
It is the very foundation that our FAITH is based on…BELIEVING in a higher power, BELIEVING in a greater good. That GOOD IS YOU, BELIEVE IN YOU, the higher power, Source, Universe, God work through you, you ARE an extension of God.
Law of Attraction IS a law, just like gravity IS a law, it works all the time, everyday, 365 days a year, 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
The following are pulled from the Bible…BELIEVE it..or not…

For a man thinketh in his heart, so is he…Proverb 23:7

Whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive…Matthew 22:21

Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Mark 11:23

Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Phil. 4:8

Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek and ye shall find; knock and it shall be open unto you. Matthew 7:7

What are you asking for? What do you appreciate? What do you believe? How do you feel? What are you thinking?

You are a creator, you can be a DELIBERATE creator…
Have fun, God has a BIG sense of humor!! Well, that is my opinion and I’m sticking to it!!

What If for the Better

I woke up this morning with this thought, so clear…to me any way.
If you are NOT getting the results you want, how are you looking at it?… are you viewing it from a place of lack? or are looking FORWARD to when you WILL get what you want and you can see yourself there with the very thing(s) in the very space that you have been dreaming about?!
Take a moment and see yourself already there, already driving the new car, living in the new house or YOU just BEING HAPPY…FEEL how it FEELs, FEEL how you FEEL!! Work yourself into a FEEL GOOD place about it!
I know sometimes the thoughts about the lack and “oh whoa is me” creep up, I will tell you that you cannot totally eliminate these thoughts but you CAN OVERRIDE THEM, think something new…think “what if for the better”.
What if I find the better job or opportunity to push me ahead, what if i see my partner, friend, lover, kids, in a different light and they are happy. When you catch yourself playing the what if in the negative, turn it around, catch yourself and think, say or do, the opposite.
Be easy on yourself, changing your thoughts and habits is not always an easy process but when it happens you will FEEL such a shift in your thinking, it IS amazing.
Start where you are, your past does not dictate your future, you are magnificent!
“What if” I’m right?
