gratitude in the past is remembering where you were and where you’ve been
celebrating the growth you have experienced
gratitude in the present for who you are now

gratitude in the future is creating your dreams and desires
connecting to your inner being and what’s most important to you
awareness for who you want to be
what you want to do
what you want to experience
gratitude in the future is gratitude in the present for who you are becoming

how do you use gratitude?
gratitude in the moment
journaling what you are grateful for
gratitude when you wake
gratitude before you sleep
gratitude for the past
gratitude for the future
gratitude for present

balance, no balance, re-balance

life is constant re-balancing
what, or where, do you feel that life isn’t quite working how you want it to?
do you feel that you are off balance, or out of control?
should you even have control?
maybe, what’s needed is to let go and allow

allow what?
what do you want?
what’s most important to you?
what’s important in this moment?
will a certain outcome for this moment, this challenge, this time in your life, have as big of an effect that you are feeling now?
can you let go the overwhelm, control, stress, anxiety and allow life to flow?
let life flow to a new balance

what is balance?
is there ever really balance?
i don’t think there is
we change, we grow, we face new challenges
we always want balance, but with change and growth, we are always re-balancing, there is no – balance
let go what you need to let go, and allow the ebb and flow of life to be your balance

live your truth!

letting go

i love summer and seeing the trees full of their leaves. i like to watch the leaves shining, shimmering as they dance and reflect the sun. i too love the pieces of me, dancing and moving together reflecting the different pieces of me and who i am.

i am not always happy to see the leaves falling, and i resist the thought of summer and fall passing into winter. what am i resisting in my life? what pieces of me am i holding onto that i need to let go to allow for growth?

why do i resist? the trees don’t resist the letting go of their leaves. it is nature. it is natural. it is intended for growth to let go and allow for change.

what do i need to let go? the change of seasons indicates that letting go for being and new growth is needed. i need change for my being and growth too.

it’s not easy to let go some pieces of you, even the pieces you don’t want, they are connected to you, a part of you. i have experienced, letting go allows for growth.

and so i do so again. this time, not so graciously, i put up a fight. i kicked and screamed. i allowed myself to do the kicking and the screaming, i allowed all that energy to flow through me. and when i was done, i let it go.

i let it leave me, i decided that i could feel it and that i didn’t have to hold onto it.

right away i felt lighter. right away i felt freer. right away i felt new positive energy coming in to create and grow in the direction that i want to go.

i was being truer to myself and allowing more of me to be who i want to be, allowing more of me to do what i want to do, and allowing more of me to experience what i want to experience.

it’s interesting to me that as the trees have lost their leaves, i too have lost some pieces of me. i let go what needed to be let go to allow for my being and growth. i let go what i needed to let go to live my truth.

what change do you want? what do you need to let go?

live your truth!

expectations

what are you expecting?

what you expect is what you allow.

are you expecting what you want? or are you expecting an old result from past experiences or unfulfilled wants? what are some of your natural thinking expectations you have from learned thinking habits?

  • I’m undeserving
  • it takes hard work
  • it takes too much time
  • it takes too much money
  • it’s only for other people, not for me
  • it comes with getting older

these are your paradigms, thoughts and actions that you don’t think about and just do or think, because they are part of your habitual thinking.

I am financially comfortable; my family and I have what we need, we enjoy activities, we enjoy vacations every year, I have some debts I would like to have been able to pay in total rather than monthly, we have just enough money or the right amount of money comes to us right when we need it, to get the things we judge to be most important and what we need the most.

but, I want to be financially free. I want my family and I to enjoy what we want, when we want it, I don’t want to have to plan to save because I don’t have the money for matching dressers in a bedroom, a new computer with more speed, a vacation to some place new, or attending seminars of my favorite mentors.

these are all things that we do now, but they require planning and sacrificing in other areas for us to do the thing we choose.

why?

it’s because I’m not allowing. I have old thought habits that are guiding my expectations, not the thoughts of expecting enjoying my new desires.

these old thought habits are coming from my experiences growing up and thought habits passed to me from the people I was surrounded by growing up.

awareness to old thought habits is going to allow for the change and replacing the old thought habits with the new expectation thoughts of what you really want to experience.

to get your desired expectation, you need to change or replace your paradigm with a new one. affirmations are good to use for giving your mind your desired expectation to think about. visualizing your desired expectation and connecting to it emotionally is good to get your mind thinking about your desired expectation.

are your thoughts for expecting what you desire?

live your truth!

challenges

I am grateful for challenges in my life. I know that challenges are growth, that when I have challenges in my life I am becoming more, becoming better and/or getting ready for quantum growth and transformation.

When I’m in the middle of a challenge I’m not always able to be aware of the growth, or aware that I am getting better from the experience.

I can be overwhelmed, anxious, stressed, worried about a challenge in my life and when I am feeling any negative emotions I’m not as easily able to create what it is that I want.

I find that when I’m feeling the negative emotions I’m usually expecting a result that I don’t want, I’m thinking of a negative outcome rather than the positive outcome that I truly want. Sometimes it’s because I’m getting caught up in what the challenge is and not allowing myself to connect to the whole of life. Sometimes it’s because of an old paradigm that I still have. Sometimes it’s because I’ve gotten comfortable in an area of my life and haven’t thought about what it is that I actually want. Sometimes it’s because I’m in an area of my life that is part of my journey that I didn’t know I would experience and so I haven’t thought about what it is that I want.

My thoughts then are expecting negative, expecting what I don’t want. I am so happy and grateful when I am able to realize that I’m expecting something that I don’t want, because then I can change my thoughts and start expecting something that I do want.

It’s not always an easy shift depending on what’s causing the negative expectation, but being aware and being able to start changing my thoughts to what I do want to expect is how I like to live.

What are you expecting? Are you expecting negative or positive? Are you expecting what you truly want? If you aren’t, change your thoughts to expect what you do want!

Live Your Truth!

Imagining

What are you imagining? Do you visualize yourself being who you want to be? Doing what you want to do? Living how you want to live? What does it feel like when you accomplish your dreams and desires? What’s your next desire?

“Everything that you want to create is already there. Your job is to connect yourself to it.“ ~Wayne Dyer

My imagination creates my reality.

I imagine what I want, the best of my dreams and desires. And I allow my imagination to grow and expand my ideas and what I want.

What is your reality? What are you imagining?

Live Your Truth!

accept what is

it is what is is and i’ll do my best and let go the rest.

you do not need to be emotionally attached to the outcome of anything. you can accept that it is not what you want it to be. as soon as you accept that, the negativity and lack and overwhelm drift away.

you still have your wants, wanting more, wanting it to be better than it is, but you do not have the worry and fret, and you don’t have to try to do it all.

for the things that i want, i can do what i can to create them, and, let go the rest. trust that what is, is supposed to be. trust that this moment will lead to the next moment. that each moment is what it is supposed to be and that you will grow and expand and what you want will be.

some of your wants will be exactly what you want, some of your wants you will let go completely because you no longer want it, and some of your wants will be much more and better than you ever imagined they would and could be.

“Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it.” ~Eckhart Tolle

what can you accept today? accept what is, trust that this moment will lead into the next moment exactly as it should.

accepting what is, you let go the negative feelings and allow for the positive feelings. what in this experience can you be grateful for? what is it that you want?

find the gratitude that is in the moment, there is always something when you are willing to look and find it.

imagine and visualize what it is that you want and begin to attract the into your life.

let go, and allow the positive to flow back to you!

live your truth!

Let Go and Allow

How do I let go and let God the Universe lead my life?

What I’m doing doesn’t seem to be working.

I’m growing, I’m definitely more than I was, and I’m very grateful. But – I feel that there’s so much more for me and I’m stuck, going in circles.

I need to live my truth more fully, more truly, go deeper! And I don’t know how to do that.

Maybe it’s not about doing – but about being. Let my being guide my doing!

Have I been doing that or not? Is that aligned with my inner being? connected with my higher self? connected with God the Universe?

Let my being guide my doing!

Are you doing or being?

Live Your Truth!
