Giving and Accepting

It is the season for gift giving.  How gracious are you at receiving?  Can you get comfortable accepting a gift without having a gift in return for the giver?  Can you feel that the gifts you give are good enough?
Look at giving and accepting as if you are looking at yourself in the mirror.  How can you be different and feel even better?

Stay In Action

Reach.  As if for a light switch in the dark.

You just cannot see it now.  

Stay connected to your intuition and stay in action and you will see your dream come true.  It may not arrive just as you imagined, but you will recognize the feeling that you have been longing to experience.

Happiness is a Choice

Choosing happiness requires being aware of your emotions and your thoughts.  There is always a way to ratchet your happiness factor up a notch.
Use a 0-10 scale and evaluate how happy you are in this moment.
Now grab a thought - it can be a memory, it can be something you observe in your present moment, or it can be a visualization of your future.  Fill yourself up with that thought and take your happiness level up a notch.  You can do it!

Release the Shoulds and Choose

Freedom of choice.  It's a global concept.  I'd like you to internalize the concept of freedom of choice today.  Pay attention to your thoughts and decisions.
When do you decide to take an action becasue you think you "should?"

What if chose to another action?  One that was in alignment with your core values?
Choose to please you today and release the burden of "shoulds."

Giving Tuesday

Tuesday, December 2nd is Giving Tuesday.  Rather than consume, how can you give back on this day?

  • Do you owe an old friend a phone call?
  • Can you extend a kindness to a stranger?
  • Can you assume an attitude of gratitude for all that you already have?

Let’s create a global shift in energy together – from consuming, to giving.  We can do it!

“It’s your mind that creates this world.”  The Buddha

Thank You

I begin each day with these two words.  As I open my eyes, I say "thank you."   

As each foot touches the ground, I say "thank" and "you."  Thanks and gratitude carry with them a very high energetic vibration that will set the course for your day.

This is a week to focus upon giving thanks.  

Find new ways to give of yourself.  Be of service to others.  The smallest act of kindness does not go unnoticed by the Universe.
When you give, you will feel great!  Be full of Thanks Giving.

Repetitive Thoughts...

....carry with them a powerful energy.  Key in and notice your thoughts.  Are these thoughts about things or experiences you would like more of?  If not, release the negative thoughts.  Create a new thought pattern by choosing a thought that feels better for you.  You are now tapped into your power.  Make your positive thoughts repetitive.  They have a powerful energy!

It Is Eleven Eleven

Today's date is both a reminder to be grateful to the men and women who have served our nation and protected us, and that we are all one. 

Whenever I see the time, 11:11, I feel as if fairy dust has been sprinkled over me.  

For all the separation I may be experiencing from what I think I can and should do, from those around me, from my higher self - I am then reminded of this endless connection to oneness.  Including oneness with all aspects of myself.

I hope today you too will feel a sprinkling of fairy dust and feel both ever-thankful to others and connected to all.

Living Food

How much  living food do you put into your body each day?  My son argues with me that once the plant is cut from its source, it is no longer living.  But you get the idea. 

Raw plant food has active enzymes and a vibrancy to it that is alive!

When you eat live food, you will feel alive.  Try eating raw, living food without accompanying it with cooked foods, or on an empty stomach.  You will feel your body become electrified!  Try a smoothie of greens, berries, and seeds, or a huge salad.  Bite into a crisp fall apple.  Add living food to your life today!

What Inspires You?

How do you move from inaction to action?  What is your source of inspiration?  Do you find clarity by being out in nature?  Do you have friends that move you and are models for your desires?
I invite you to key-in and open your mind's eye and ears to what uniquely inspires you.
Then, take action.

Let It Go

I have always thought some of the most powerful words are, "Just Do It" as coined by Nike.  When you "just do it", you release fear and worry and step into your life's purpose.  Three more words, made famous by the song from the Disney movie Frozen, are "Let It Go!"
Watch the Video 
When you "let it go" you cut the tethers that bind you to repeating old patterns and free yourself to experience the new and good awaiting you.

Single Task for Superior Results

It is simple, but not easy, to single-task.  Read more about the "hows and whys" behind single-tasking in my new book, Keyed In:  7 Keys To Transform Your Life

For today, choose one task and engage all of your senses.  Ground yourself in the moment by removing your shoes and feeling you feet pressed into the Earth.  Step into action and continually release your thoughts that distract you.

You will feel refreshed and accomplished!

One Body

In my studies at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I learned about Integrative Medicine.  

Integrate - or view as one - Your Body.
When you feel aches and pains or sense your eyesight diminishing, zoom out with your mind's eye and observe your whole body.  Refrain from focusing upon your parts.

How does the part that aches integrate with the whole?
What message does the pain or discomfort have for you?
How is your energy body involved?
What stuck negative emotions are you holding onto that may be contributing to your condition?

Love Your One Body

Are You Counting Your Flaws?

I am going to lean toward "Yes" being your answer.  What if you shifted your consciousness toward counting your blessings?  How would our day unfold differently?                          What you think about, you bring about.
When you are focused upon what you dislike and what frustrates you, you draw more of the same into your experience.

Today, for every self-deprecating thought you notice, find two thoughts of gratitude for yourself.  You are your greatest source of positive change.

Allow Mother Nature to Guide You

What steps can you take to tune out "shoulds" and tune into your authenticity?  Do the autumn leaves turn color because they "should?"  Who would you be if you could shed your shoulds?  How can you mimic nature, just for today?  

Key In, allow, be authentic.

What Happens When You Try?

When you "try" to do something, you leave a gap that is vulnerable to allowing in what you don't want to experience.  Trying leaves room for failing.  It creates an excuse for your action not to manifest into your desired outcome.

Today, choose to intend.  Couple your intention with a visualization of your desired outcome.  Ask yourself, "How will I feel when I have what I want?"  Step into intention and action from this feeling place.

Thank You

Want to join me in my "thank you" practice?  I awake each  morning and say, "Thank you" several times. 
Sometimes I am saying thank you to my body, for arising.  I say thank you to morning, thank you to life.  
I write correspondence to others to say, "thank you." 
Thank you carries with it a powerful energetic vibration.  Saying, "thank you" will make you feel great, will elevate your awareness to the vibration of gratitude, and will enhance the energy of the recipient of your gratitude.  
My son will often ask when writing correspondence, "Mom, is thankyou one word?"  Good question.  They surely pair up together well.

Visualize the Outcome

What you see is what you get.  So why not visualize something that you desire?  There is so much power in seeing something unfold in your mind's eye.  It paves the way for the existence of that something.  We all anticipate the worst case scenario.  Today, see the best possibilities!

Let it Go

I've said it before and it is a mantra worth re-visiting.  Do you ever get hung up on something that went wrong and simply continue to play back the tape of that scene in your mind?  I did this morning.  When I was done ranting and desired to let it go, I still had a difficult time doing so.  Then I relied on a trusty visualization that generally works very well for me. 

I imagine the problem or challenge wrapped inside a helium balloon and then allow it to drift away.  Today, the balloon that came to me was black in color and so weighty that it could barely take off.  I stuck with my visualization and was finally able to release my feelings around the challenge.  Later today, I even laughed about it.
