what’s your journey?

taking action to achieve my goals has been a lot like taking a canoe journey. when paddling a canoe, to move forward you paddle on both sides of the canoe. in life, to achieve your vision, you take action on goals in all areas of your life.

every journey and goal is different; you never know what your challenges will be, or when you will be challenged during your journey. the effort required to paddle, to take action towards your vision and goals can and will change.

our goals are like the ripples in the water from paddling the canoe, one expanding into another, effecting and joining one another.

on my various canoe journeys i’ve had many different experiences. i’ve been able to paddle leisurely. i’ve been faced with a challenge; a light wind, a strong wind, rain, or a change in direction.

in life there are times when your priority and focus will be on one area of your life and you will spend more time on the goals related to that area of your life to grow and achieve your vision. in these moments paddling, or taking actions for your goals, will be slow and steady to keep you moving forward.

on my canoe adventures i have had to change directions to make it to my destination. changing directions in a canoe requires you paddle more on one side of the canoe than the other. i have changed directions and was going into the wind so i needed to use more focused effort and energy. i have moved into a new direction and the wind was less and the paddling was easier because i wasn’t fighting against the wind.

there are times in life that you need to change directions, the goals you have may no longer be leading you to the vision that you have for yourself. in life changing your goals to achieve your vision may require more discipline and focus, or the goal may be easier because you are not fighting against the challenges that you faced going in the wrong direction.

there are times when i’ve been paddling in the right direction but a strong wind challenged me and i put forth a lot of energy and effort. paddling through challenges requires more determination and focus on your final destination in order to arrive to it. i didn’t let the wind stop me from reaching my destination; i’ve had to paddle with stronger and quicker strokes, i’ve had to move closer to shore stop and let the wind calm or the rain pass. i’ve gone with the flow letting the current carry me to rest, refresh and rejuvenate before continuing on my journey. i’ve had to ask for help in paddling, both to stop paddling and to begin paddling.

there are times when taking action on your goals you will have challenges; negative feelings of overwhelm doubt or worry, negative opinions from others, or a change in another area of your life. it is important to keep taking action towards your goals and move through and grow through the challenges you will face.

i have felt overwhelm when trying to achieve my goals. and the overwhelming feeling is accompanied with thoughts of doubt and worry, and questions of “how?” and “am i going to make it through?” at these times i take time to become aware of where i am, where i’ve been focusing my energies and actions. have i been taking action on one area of my life and neglecting another that i am out of balance and need to realign? do i need to let go and go with the flow?

most often when overwhelm tries to get to me it is because i’m not prioritizing my life and i haven’t had balance for too long. not too long ago i was feeling overwhelm and i became aware that it was because i wasn’t putting my health – specifically my physical activity as a priority. i was neglecting my morning exercise; running, yoga strength and stretching. and i know that when i’m not physically active, i’m affected in all areas of my life. it’s like ripples in the water disturbing and merging with the others. i’m not able to do my best, because i’m not physically my best.

it is important while on your journey, taking action to reach your goal, that you enjoy the journey! happiness comes from the experiences on your journey, not from reaching the final destination. reaching your final destination, achieving your goals is a time for celebration. during your journey and at the end of your journey practice being in present moment awareness. and as one journey ends, be ready for a new journey to begin.

enjoy the challenges of your journey!

live your truth!

gratitude in the gap

what do you want?

are you feeling the lack of the want? or are you feeling the awareness and gratitude for the want?

often when we get in the gap we are feeling the lack of what we want. when we feel the lack of what we want our energy is in negative flow.

what do you want? what are you focused on? are you noticing a growing list of what you don’t have? are you feeling overwhelm of what all you need to accomplish this want that you want? is your body tight and tense, shoulders lifting to your ears?

you can feel the gratitude in the gap for three things. the awareness of what you want, the growth you have experienced and the journey of the moment.

what do you want? what are you focused on? are you curious about creating what you want? are you excited to learn and do new things? is your body light and free, muscles loose with flowing movements?

are you noticing what you want and being curious? what can you learn about what you want? what will you discover about what you want? what will you discover about what you want to create? what will you discover about yourself? notice what you can discover and create and be grateful.

are you noticing the growth you have experienced to lead you to this new want? where were you, in this moment right now are you living a past want? as we experience life and grow, we are expanding spiraling upward, creating the life that we want. our wants grow and expand. our old want has grown and expanded to our new want. notice your growth of your want and be grateful.

are you noticing this moment you are living? what are you experiencing? what is the journey you are on? who are you being? what are you doing? what are you creating? this moment is for you to be who you want to be and to do what you want to do. this moment is for you to experience what you want to experience. notice that each moment is part of your journey. there are the moments of your past, there will be moments in your future, right now is the moment of your present. live and experience this moment and be grateful.

what do you want? what is your gap? be grateful in the gap for you have experienced many moments to be in the gap. be grateful in the gap for you are creating your dreams and desires. be grateful in the gap for you are in this moment living and experiencing your life journey.

what is your gratitude in the gap?

live your truth!

river of life

i like to think of my life as a flowing river. all the different currents are my dreams and desires creating my life journey.

the middle currents are faster and free flowing. the currents are the goals and desires that are grounded and centered in your core being.

the currents along the edges are slower having to feel the way and learn while moving along the river. the currents are dreams and desires for experiencing life fully and fulfilling your being.

sometimes there are obstacles, rocks and logs that block the flow of the currents. the obstacles slow the current down and need to be removed or navigated around for the current to continue it’s journey down the river.

what obstacles are in your river? what are you doing to remove them and get around the obstacle?

what does your river look like right now? rivers are constantly moving and changing. the currents are constantly moving and changing.

what are the dreams and desires in the currents of your river? what is the life journey all of your currents are creating in your river of life?

live your truth!

wanting change

i’m not happy with an experience in my journey right now, i want it to change. it is not a change that can be done quickly, it will affect many other areas of my life. i am easily overwhelmed and stressed by small triggers and need to make the change as soon as possible.

i find myself getting overtaken and lost in feelings of worry and doubt, fear of not… not finding the change i need, not acting quickly enough, not making the right choice, not living my truth.

i am so happy and grateful for many things in areas of my life that i want to change, but so often i get caught up and swept away in the wanting of change, wanting something more that i don’t have.

and i wonder if i focused on being grateful for what was good in that area of my life, what then would i create? and how much faster could i create it?

letting go of the worry, doubt and fear. letting go the overwhelm and feeling lack.

allowing gratitude to fill me. gratitude for what is good in this part of my journey. gratitude for what i am learning and experiencing. gratitude for the challenge. gratitude for the growth. gratitude for all the pieces that were (and are) good in this piece of me that it is now time for me to change.

gratitude for growth!

what am i going to create?! it is a new adventure on this journey of my life!

live your truth!

 

journey

Our journey is all our life’s moments. Our growth and expansion to being who we want to be, doing what we want to do, and experiencing what we want to experience. Our journey is little moments and big moments, little experiences and big experiences. It is the ups and downs, the challenges and celebrations of living a life that is continually changing, growing and transforming.

How often are you living in the moment? How often are you aware that this NOW moment is the only moment there is, the only moment that matters?

dsc04446

Awareness of who you are and what you want is what allows you to make the positive choices in the now moment to live and to create the life that you want to live. Awareness that you are responsible for your choices is what allows you to be positive and grateful for what you are living, to enjoy the moment – your life journey.

Live Your Truth!

let go control

I choose to live in present moment awareness and do what is most important. When I choose to live in present moment awareness and do what is most important it creates a serene day with a sense of urgency which is calm and collected, a focused way of living and experiencing the day.

When I am trying to control and do do do, that creates overwhelm.

I can’t control anything but my feelings and choices. I can be aware of what I am choosing and choose to feel positive.

DSCN3604

Letting go control and doing my best, allowing the moment and trusting God, the Universe, is how I want to live. There is so much that I want to do and want to prioritize. I need to be aware that I am not super mom or super woman and I can’t do it all and have it all right now. (still, I really really want it – but I know that the growth and journey to achieving all that I want is so much more!)

So I choose to be and do what is most important in the now moment and living in present moment awareness. I choose to do my best at what is most important at the time. I choose to trust the Universe is creating all that I want.

I can let go and be patient. I can live in faith and trust.

I enjoy the journey in the preset moment.

What control can you let go? What is most important to you in your present moment awareness?

Live Your Truth!

moment to moment

Our life journeys are to live happy. To feel and be love. To grow and expand. Our journeys are living our goals, our dreams and desires. Are you living your goals? Are you living your dreams and desires?

Our journeys are made from all the little moments, moment to moment we live and experience life. The way I have found to live happy, to feel and be love is to play with life. I have many positive habits and routines that have helped me to create the life that I want to live. I have developed them through time, through trial and error of what works for me and what doesn’t work for me. I have an idea for doing to create the want in my life, and I try the idea. If it doesn’t work I modify the idea and try again. I tweak it just so, I play with it, a lot like modeling clay. You play with the idea until you get it right for you. As I look back at the moments I have been overcome with love, joy and gratitude – I had been busy playing with life. I was experiencing life as I played with it. I was playing with life and creating what I wanted that I didn’t fully realize that I had already create a big portion of the life that I wanted to live. Because I had had a new expanded ideas as I played and I started playing with that. That is what living in the moment is, it is ALL of life.

“Humans are experiential and experiences are thoughts in constant creation.
~Rob Rohe

Playing with life is the constant creation of what you want. What makes you happy, what makes you fulfilled. And what makes you happy and what fulfills you will change and grow as you experience new ideas and play with them moment to moment. That is your journey, experiencing life moment to moment – even though we can get caught up in the moment of playing that we momentarily forget to be aware that we are choosing, we are creating.

Oprah Winfrey said, “The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.” Play with your dreams and the ideas that you get that will lead you to your dreams and desires. You will grow and expand. You will live the life that you want to live. You may not realize it, because you have already expanded and grown and are playing with the new idea for your expanded dreams and desires.

“Life is a challenge, meet it! Life is a dream, realize it! Life is a game, play it! Life is love, enjoy it!” ~Sri Sathya Sai Baba

Live Your Truth!

Life’s Journey

How often are you living in the moment? How often are you aware that this NOW moment is the only moment there is, the only moment that matters?

DSCN3604

Awareness of who you are and what you want is what allows you to make the positive choices in the now moment to live and to create the life that you want to live. Awareness that you are responsible for your choices is what allows you to be positive and grateful for what you are living, to enjoy the moment – your life journey.

It is empowering to look to your future and imagine the life that you want to live; who you want to be; what you want to do, and what you want to experience. Making positive choices in the moment knowing that the choice is moving you in the direction that you want to go. Connecting with your inner being, your guidance system is powerful and guides your expansion.

It is good to be aware of what you want – where you want to go, and to be aware of where you were – how much you’ve grown. To be aware in the moment and be grateful for all that you were and for all that you are becoming. It is an awareness that allows you to enjoy the journey, to enjoy the NOW moment knowing that you are always becoming, you are always creating!

Life is lived in the NOW moment. Life is not lived in the past and life is not lived in the future. Enjoy your moments, being grateful for what you have lived and experienced and being grateful for what you are creating and how you are expanding. And in these moments of gratitude, in the NOW moments of life. Feel your heart filled with love and joy. Feel overflowing of happiness and harmony. Feel the calm peace and serenity. Feel the powering energy and enthusiasm that is life.
