This post was inspired by an email I received from a client/friend asking for help. I generally read my emails, respond, give, receive, help, share, as I can. This particular email was so “contrasty” and I felt this come through in response.
This response is about mind set, emotions, being positive, it is not my journey to “fix” any one or any thing, nothing is broken, we are all on a journey of exploration and experience and when we realize that our thoughts, words, actions, become “things” then awesome!!
The email was asking for monies to “fight” a disease. When you “fight” anything it is resistance AND what you resist, persists. (it just keeps hanging around!) I don’t mind giving, and I will not put my energy (money, time etc.) into a “cause” that is contrasty and will only get bigger in me giving it energy in any form.
NOTICE how BIG Dis-Ease has become and you will realize that it is ONLY your attention to “IT” ALLOWS “IT” to grow and become more. I am not saying stop looking for solutions. I am saying stop calling attention to “it”(Insert whatever LACK OF EASE you want here). Concentrate your efforts on Total Wellness, what does THAT look like for any of us? (not a wishing it was better… a BEing in a state of better and better)
When you assume people are afflicted, you see them as BEing not whole. When you look at people, look at them as BEing whole and amazing… hold that space for them in love and see what happens!
A great example is Jesus Christ, looking at ALL with unconditional love… no one broken, no one any better or worst than he. Just amazing human beings having human experiences and as he held you in his gaze of true unconditional love, you are whole. He believed in you. You became that whole well BEing! (If you don’t believe in JC then take a look at modern day folks like the Dali Lama, Ghandi, Mother Theresa)
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE, we ALL can… how do we start? CARE about yourself first, BE an example of goodness, love, understanding, patience, giving AND receiving, sharing AND caring. (unconditional love) When you are the BEST for you, then, you can be the BEST for others!
If you have some dis-ease (lack of ease) ask yourself what is the underlying emotional “thing” that I have stuck (what am I hanging on to?) and how do I clear it? Sounds interesting AND you bring solution to you when you ask.
YOU get to choose whether you are living in a space where wellness, love, happiness and joy abounds or dying from “some thing”.
I am not bashing medicine, I know that the body is capable of amazing healing and wellness. Let the meds be temporary. Choose to check out your emotional mindset and shift into a state of happiness and joy (maybe a splash of forgiveness for yourself and others) and watch what happens. Kudos to those who have gone beyond survivor! Kudos to those who supported, shared and cared while friends and loved ones went through their journey and held space for them to be “well-er”. Let’s Walk for Wellness! Run for Wellness! Let Wellness Abound, LIVE in a state of knowing YOUR WELLNESS and KNOW that You are Well to the Degree You Allow Yourself to BE!

How many of us have said this as some sort of affirmation and/or maybe we said this to ourselves as we chatted with a potential client or boss!? I certainly raise my hand to all of the above. I am also experiencing a different perspective on my value and my perception on being paid. Sometimes our “payment” is not money. Sometimes that payment is in knowledge and experience. Are you starting to see where I am going?
I used to see patterns in how my clients would pay me and now I realize that I created those patterns and was getting exactly what I was looking at and “expecting”. It was not a conscious expectation, it was a comfort in my level of worthiness and confidence, or should I say an uncomfortable comfortableness! I get to make the choices in my life about how and what I get paid and the value that I place on me.(Key word is CHOICE)
I too, am constantly shifting and expanding on an amazing journey of self awareness and I would like you to join me!
I have recently met a gentleman by the name of Soul Dancer (YES, his real name) and he wrote a book titled “Pay Me What I Am Worth”, it IS about all of the above and it is a book of expansion, of getting to know your self worth. I AM on a journey with several other folks, to not only expand our confidence, it is to truly reach out and BE the examples so others can say, Me too, Me too!! I am placing a link to a “Reality Radio” Series. I am coming in on the 4th show, please feel free to listen in, send feedback, if not to me, to Soul.
Remember that “this life is YOUR journey, be happy and confident in where you are and watch where it takes you!”
During the next 7 days, pay close attention to what you say, and how you FEEL when you are speaking. Pay attention to your thoughts, what are you saying when you are “saying” nothing at all (Just thinking).
When you FEEL yourself feeling not good about what you are thinking or you emotionally get caught up in a conversation (in a not pleasant way), make a conscious effort to change, what you are saying AND thinking. Here is an example, as I am writing this, the first thought that entered was “7 Day Challenge”. The word challenge didn’t FEEL so good to me, I didn’t want to make this a difficult thing, I just wanted to make it FUN. So I changed my “challenge” to “Play”, much nicer I think!!
I play at this all the time, take a moment, change a word or two or reword an entire sentence. Get rid of some not so pleasant words you use on a daily basis … I can’t, I won’t, I NEED TO…., soften these up…if you have children, notice what you say to them AND around them, they are absorbing everything!! Here are some other ideas I tossed around. 7 Days of Support (To me this sounds kind of heavy) 7 Days of True Answers (I like this one too AND how many will listen? AAAh, you may have a few epiphanies)
Have fun, keep a little journal of some breakthroughs. I would love to hear of any inspirations, discoveries, whammies, unveiling visions (Pick a word that FEELS good to you!!) Life IS what you make it!! Have FUN!!! “be happy where you are and watch where it takes you”
