Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #87

I’m grateful when God closes doors that are no longer meant for me. I feel a growth spurt coming on. I’m always amazed how this happens in my life. A little chaos gets stirred up to show me doors to close and new doors to open. The transition isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it’s downright painful! What I have learned is it is necessary in order to keep growing and expanding.

I’m a person who is very sensitive to other people’s energy. It’s part of the reason I love speaking so much. I love the feel of energy connecting. I used to think it was only possible in person, but the pandemic taught me no distance matters when energy is connecting and lifting people into the energy of love, abundance, and peace. It’s also true for the energy of fear, lack, and separation, but I definitely don’t want to put my focus there.

I honestly believe that God sends little whispers when energy isn’t aligning. I feel it’s preparing me to close a door and/or open a new one. My body will also give me energy signals. I can be talking to someone and a person says something that makes my stomach tighten up, I know whatever is being said is connecting me to fear, lack, and separation. Then, I can also feel goosebumps as a sign of connecting to Divine energy, the home of authentic joy. I call it the AWE.

I’ve been getting the door closing preparation whispers for a while, and then while I was in my highest energy, I felt the door slam. My body became constricted. I knew in that moment I needed to shut the door to a big source of fear, lack, and separation trying to invade my energy space. In part of the struggle of closing the door, I have to remember the importance of praying for those who are stuck in the energy. In order for me to stay out of their energy, I have to make sure mine is aligned with love, abundance, and peace. I don’t do this perfectly. It takes a lot of reminders. Once I gain distance from their energy, I feel this encouraging feeling and idea after idea start flowing into me. I’m grateful for the door closing. I’m so grateful I keep getting signs on how to align deeper into the energy of love, abundance, and peace.

Today, I commit to being open to the signs leading me to close doors to fear, lack, and separation. If we want to stay in the energy of love, abundance, and peace, we have to pay attention to where our energy slips into fear, lack, and separation. I’m learning to trust my body’s signals on this one. I’m also learning to trust that little voice. The little voice gets clearer the more we align with love, abundance, and peace. Just remember, when doors are closing it can get dark for a little bit. I don’t want to downplay that. It takes a lot of work to stay in love, abundance, and peace when you are also experiencing grief of a door closing. This could be a friendship, a job, a career path, a spiritual path, familial relationships, romantic relationships, etc. It just signifies a time of change, and change isn’t always an easy thing. We have to give ourselves space to feel through it. The feelings can be all over the place for awhile depending on how long you had the door open. It may feel like you are feeling around in the dark while you are getting prepared to open a new door. The door will open when you are ready, but sometimes we have to be in a place of stillness before the door opens. Once again, we are in a chrysalis making the necessary changes to be able to fly. Trust the process.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #86

I’m grateful that when the student is ready, the teacher appears. This is one of my favorite proverbs. I’m a mom who has great relationships with my teenagers. I know most of you will be shocked to hear this, but kids can make some pretty immature and/or bad choices (learning opportunities) sometimes (LOL). I know I did when I was a kid too. If any of my friends are reading this from my middle school and high school years, they know. If I didn’t make the choices I did then, and have the teachers I did, I wouldn’t be where I am now. Those choices gave me tons of opportunities to learn, and I’m STILL learning. That is what this journey is about. Nobody is perfect. We each have a journey that is ours to go through, I recently was shown where I slipped into judgment of others, and am learning to be better.

As a parent now, I keep having to put myself in check. As much as I want to align with love, abundance, and peace, sometimes I’ve seen myself get lost in fear, lack, and separation. I can go there in interactions that trigger me. I can go there when my kids make a big mistake, and when I make mistakes. When I slow down, I see these as a learning opportunities to be responsible and accountable, and get a clearer vision of the energy I’m aligning with by my choices in perspectives and actions.

My son recently had a big learning opportunity. He made a immature choice, or rather a series of immature choices. When he realized how much the choices affected other people and himself, he wanted to fix things. He held himself responsible and accountable. He apologized and wanted to to talk to all the people involved, and show people he learned. To me, this shows me signs of a kid on a good path. Some individuals put an instant label on him (bad kid), oh and me (bad mom). He is going to make choices as a kid that are going to have consequences, just like we do as adults. He learned a lot about trust, respect, judgment, responsibility, and consequences. He learned that some people will judge him permanently on one choice (especially in today’s climate of judgment). He had to learn that he has the choice to believe people’s judgments on him or just keep doing the best he can to make better choices and not go to a place of shame that makes him feel like he’s a bad kid, because he made bad call. I know he feels bad about the choices he made, which is good because it shows that he cares, but I definitely don’t want him to feel like he is a bad kid. Just writing this, I have to make sure I keep this message clear to him. If a child is judged as a “bad kid” for some immature behavior and he believes the message, he will start proving it true to reinforce the message to himself that what other people said was right.

Living from a loving place isn’t always easy. There will be people who judge us and our children. There will be people who operate out of fear, lack, and separation who want to go after us because we don’t think of things the same way they do, because we don’t see the world the same way they do. This is where the teacher appeared for me, after this happened I went to an old place of fear, lack, and separation. In this space, I started to see times I judged other parents. I saw where I judged my kids. I saw areas where I attracted other judgmental people to my life because I was in that energy. I saw where I gave my energy over to gossip, which is just another place for fear, lack, and separation to come in.

Here’s the part I love about this journey, when a bunch of stuff was energetically going down around me, I was in a place where my energy was going up. If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you may have heard me talk about magnets. When we are energetically aligned with people, we feel a magnetic pull towards them. If we aren’t energetically aligned, it’s like flipping over that magnet and there is a resistance. I used to fight this sometimes when I would feel the distance. Now, I thank God for showing me, because it’s this energy that helps me keep my vibes moving in the direction I want to go. If I pray to be surrounded by the energy of love, abundance, and peace, then a bunch of chaos happens to show me who isn’t in that energy, I can pay attention to my energy connections to people. If the energies don’t align, I can walk away in peace. I don’t have to make their energy mine. If I don’t feel love, abundance, and peace when I look at social media, I can change where I look. We have choices to learn from the energy we put out, and what we get back, or be in denial of it and blame someone else. I choose to pay attention when the teachers show up to help direct me to where I want to go.

Today, I commit to learning from the teachers who are presented to me. I’ve noticed that these teachers show up in amazing ways. I was just watching a speaker yesterday who was talking about watching the people you invite to be around you. I needed that little sign post to tell me to pay attention. something I’ve learned about these magnets is that often times both people feel the alignment or the resistance. I usually don’t even have to have a conversation about walking away. I just leave in peace. It’s not my business what they do with their energy in the situation. I’m only accountable and responsible for my energy. It’s funny how I just posted about this yesterday, and needed to use some of it today. Pay attention today, if you read something, hear something, or see something that gives you an opportunity to be a student, look for the teacher. If you are open and ready to learn, you will get a lesson that could help you to align with the energy that you want to be living in.

If you noticed, I used a lot of different words like mistakes, learning opportunities, bad choices, and immature choices. Our language will look different, but pay attention to the effects the words have on your body. If you have a shame trigger around one of these things, go into it and look at where you are holding shame around it. Be gentle on yourself, we aren’t here to be perfect, or judge others because they’re not either. My perspective is we are here to learn and grow from each other. When we can stop judging ourselves and others so harshly, so many more teachers appear in loving and compassionate ways.

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #85

I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve others. Yesterday, I spoke at The Power of One: You Create Your Reality conference. Being able to serve others brings me so much joy. Back in the day, I used to try to find my worth in serving others and would feel depleted, drained, and walked on. It took me a long time to realize that I wasn’t serving out of a place of abundance, I was serving from a place of lack. I lacked self-worth, self-esteem, and a positive self-image. I expected my giving to fill a void within myself—It never did.

When I learned to authentically serve from love, abundance, and peace, my world expanded in the most amazing ways. Today, serving from a loving place is what drives everything I do. It’s why I have both free services and fee based services. It’s just like this series, I knew I needed to do this for me to keep me aligned, but I share it in case someone else may need some help staying in the energy of love, abundance, and peace too. I love that my life has opened up so that I can create all these different paths to help others. I actually set up a Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace Facebook group too. I wanted a place for people to go if they wanted to do the work and also get opportunities to get major discounts on my fee based services. Service to others is a joy, and if it doesn’t feel like a joy, it may be because you need to take a deeper look into figuring out why you are servicing. For the conference, I made a back-up video just in case of technical difficulties. I wanted to share it with you.

Today, I commit to serving others. Since today is day two of the conference, this will be easy for me. Even though I’m done with my speaking part, I will stick around to help people at the conference get the most out of the event. The Remo conference hall is so fun, because it is set up just like an in person conference. I can go from table to table and chat with participants and speakers during the breaks. I feel so blessed to get this opportunity to serve. My well is overflowing.

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #84

I’m grateful for the choice to live an empowered life. In just a few hours after this piece is published, I will be speaking at a virtual conference on the the power of perspective: Are You a Prisoner of Your Perspective or Does it Set You Free? Our beliefs are perspectives of truth. We choose them. Some are formed subconsciously as they are passed from generation to generation and others gathered along the way. When we become accountable and responsible for how we are choosing to live based on our beliefs, we open the door to be set free. When we understand the words of the Serenity Prayer, we gain the power to empower or lives.

When I learned to hold myself accountable and responsible for the things I can change, my focus became on changing me. I changed my perceptions, thoughts, actions, and responses to align with the life I wanted to be living. I live empowered because I know I can’t change anyone else, so the question becomes— what can I do now? How can I best project the energy of love, abundance, and peace to the world. Knowing that I ALWAYS have the power to educate myself, expand my thoughts, and shift with the moment has helped me to pivot during these challenging times. I’m not scared to be me, and that is because I’m aligning with the energy I want to project.

Today, I commit to empowering myself. I hold myself accountable and responsible for the choices I make today. I will represent the energy of love, abundance, and peace in my thoughts, beliefs, actions, and responses to others. I will forgive myself when I stumble and fall. I will not participate in self-abuse emotionally or physically. I will honor, respect, and protect myself, so that I show others how to treat me.

When we give ourselves back the power that is ours—We are free! We understand that when we work on our internal world, our external reality shifts. It truly is a miraculous thing.

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #83

I’m grateful for the AWE moments. AWE moments are those moments that truly MAKE you take a deep conscious breath because whatever it is you are looking at or experiencing takes you to a place of the most authentic joy. It can be from a moment shared with loved ones, nature, animals, friends, strangers, roller coasters, pictures, books, etc. It’s not something giving you this feeling, it’s you truly being at one with the moment and appreciating it that gives you the feeling. You don’t even have to leave your room to feel the AWE. It could be how an author describes something. It can be nature pictures you find online. You could have an AWE moment from watching home videos or a movie. An AWE moment can come from acts of kindness either that we participate in or watch. The beauty of AWE is that it is a place of oneness. When we are in a place of AWE, we are aligned with love, abundance, and peace. We are aligned with the exact moment we are in to experience the miracle of the moment. I’m so grateful for the AWE moments.

Today, I commit being in AWE. Like I said, we don’t have to go anywhere to feel AWE, so even if I have no plan of leaving my house, I can still get there. I can be in AWE from looking at nature photography, watching Ted Talks, seeing beautiful art, reading a meaningful book, or a fiction book with elaborate worlds. I can watch a movie, and the loving exchange between characters can bring me to tears of AWE.

Then, just walking out the door, I can look up at the sky and often will feel AWE when I watch cloud formations, see wildlife, or notice the colors of sunrise or sunset. AWE comes to me when I’m sitting in Zoom meetings and talking about AWE or listening to someone else talk about AWE, which is what recently happened and inspired me to write this piece. There is no excuse for me not have some AWE moments daily! It’s a choice whether to do something that I know will bring me authentic joy or not to. If I’m not willing to commit to being in AWE, I’m moving too fast and missing the gifts that are in front of me. If I do that often enough, I align with fear, lack, and separation instead of love, abundance, and peace. At the moment, I choose to stay in a loving place, because it feels better here. Even my sadness feels better when it’s not aligned with stories of fear, lack, and separation. So, today, I commit to being in AWE, and I will do it again tomorrow.

Today’s post is dedicated to Allen Klein. Thank you for dedicating so much of your life to helping individuals align with joy! His upcoming book is the Awe Factor: How a Little Bit of Wonder Can Make a Big Difference in Your Life.

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #82

I’m grateful for the good things money can do! Way too many of us have a bad relationship with money. Then we wonder why we don’t have any, very little, or just not enough. Our energy around money will lead us to fear, lack, and separation or love, abundance, and peace. It all comes down to the stories we tell ourselves about money and the people who have it. If someone is attached to fear, lack, and separation they can make a lot of money doing things that aren’t good for the common good, and they will never feel like they have enough, because they are living in lack. People can be attached to that same energy and have nothing, because in their minds all people who have money are evil and hurt others. Well, the fear of being a bad person will keep them from having money, or they will rationalize making money in ways that keep their self-worth believing they are a bad person. To the unhealthy people who believe that no amount of money is enough, they will do things to get it that put their greed before human life, because they are living in lack. It’s a vicious cycle.

Now, if we align with the energy of love, abundance, and peace, we can see the good that money can do and we look to the people who are doing good with the money they have. There are plenty of these people out there. Many of them aren’t flaunting what they are doing, because they ARE doing what they do for the right reasons. Remember, where we put our focus is what we will see more of and what we will create for ourselves. I’m grateful for the good things money can do. I love diving in and researching all the amazing developments that come from people who actually build up their teams to do amazing things in the world.

This doesn’t mean we don’t pay attention when faced with facts, but it means we don’t make it about the money. Healthy people (aligned with love, abundance and peace) will do good things with money, and unhealthy people (aligned with fear, lack, and separation) will make bad choices with money. It’s a human thing, not a money thing.

Today, I commit to working on my relationship with money. One of the ways I work on my relationship with money is to remember that money is just paper, we as humans are what gives money meaning for better or for worse. Really, our relationship with money is about our relationship with ourselves and our own beliefs about money. I can have whatever relationship I want, I don’t have to be imprisoned by beliefs about money that others have had or have been passed down to me. There will be proof that people do bad things with money and there will be proof that people do good things. The questions are:

  • What are my beliefs about money?
  • How do they serve me?
  • Do I feel imprisoned by some of these beliefs?
  • Do I care shame, guilt, or fear around money?
  • Do I feel like I’m always in lack of money?What is another way of to look at the beliefs that aren’t serving me (research good things people are doing with money and try to see what their beliefs are)?
  • Who do I want to be?
  • How do I want my relationship with money to look?
  • What do I want to do with money?
  • Why am I doing what I do?
  • What are my priorities?
  • How will I serve others?
  • Why do I want to have more?
  • Do I appreciate what I have now?

When we stop blaming others for our issues with money and start looking at the ideas we hold true, we set ourselves free from the chains that are keeping us held down. This doesn’t mean if we change our beliefs that we will become instant millionaires, but it might mean that we discover that we get what we need and that when we align our energy with love, abundance, and peace—Money has a way of showing up!

I’m grateful I feel worthy of life and love. This wasn’t always true. I went a very long time feeling that I was unworthy of love and life. On the surface, I hid it well. I used to do so much for others to the point where I gave myself away. I talk about the dangers of this in my book, Letters from a Better Me. If we aren’t giving for the right reasons and we are giving to seek worth, WE DON’T HAVE IT! When we do that, our giving depletes us and we feel resentful, which means we are attaching to fear, lack, and separation. It took me a long time to understand that feeling worthy would change everything from my relationships to the way I give.

I’m so grateful I have such great connections with others, but there is NO person outside of myself who holds the key to my worth. Me, being here in this moment right now means, I’m meant to be here and I have a purpose here. As long as I project love, abundance, and peace, that is what will come back to me. There is a reason that I write what I write and do the conferences I do, I want people to take their keys back from anyone they gave them away to. Our perspectives on our worth drive our feeling, thoughts, beliefs, and actions. The beautiful part is that we aren’t stuck anywhere where we don’t want to be internally. Our brains are so powerful, but if we give our power away by putting our worth in someone else’s hands, we tie up our own. I’m grateful I feel worthy of life and love, because the other way of living and feeling was way too painful.

Today, I commit to showing myself I’m worthy of life and love. I show myself I’m worthy by taking care of myself. I don’t neglect myself to prove my worth to others. Writing is one of the ways I take care of myself. Staying in gratitude is a way I take care of myself. Eating foods that my body agrees with is a way I take care of myself. I show myself love by doing the things I would do for the people I love—FOR ME. I give myself quality alone time, even if it is 30 minutes. When we show ourselves we are worthy of life and love, we show others how to treat us. When we show ourselves we aren’t worthy of life and love, we show others how to treat us. If you are getting walked on by others, you had to lie down in front of them for them to be able to do that. When we have a healthy relationship with ourselves, we don’t lie down on the ground to be walked on. We have healthy natural boundaries. We can’t FAKE this! When we fake it, people know it. Our energy gives us away no matter what is coming out of our mouths. This is an inward journey worth taking and it IS the path to empowerment.

COMING UP!

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #80

I’m grateful I can OWN MY insecurities and shame. I just finished watching an episode of Red Table Talks on mom shaming. It made me so grateful for my journey of owning my own insecurities and shame. I learned years ago that we don’t shame or point out the insecurities of others unless we have them ourselves. We can’t shame others if we are not shaming ourselves. One of the greatest tools I learned is to look at myself when I’m judging others. That is why I start my book, where I do. We won’t be able to fix anything we are struggling with if we don’t take a look at ourselves.

When I would blame or shame others, it’s because their behavior was triggering something inside me. This doesn’t mean there isn’t a healthy way to stand up to injustices, it’s the way we do it that says if our own inner shame and/or insecurities are triggered. This is part of the reason I started writing from a loving place is to get clear on communicating with myself and others from a place of love, not my insecurities and shame (which come from attachments to fear, lack, and separation). I’m so grateful that when I catch myself judging others, I start digging deeper, because when I can find my compassion or a perspective that will help me getting to a loving place, I KNOW I won’t take on the very energy that I don’t want to be a part of. I can’t represent peace from a place of hate in my heart.

When I read the book, Loving What Is by Byron Katie, it got me to see others as my mirrors to what was really going on inside of me. It got me to see how I was choosing to view others came from my own perspectives of interpretation. She taught me to look at how my thinking about others got in my way and created blocks in my life. Her book was the catalyst that got me to read other books on codependency and shame. With my formal education in psychology, lifespan development, sociology, and cultural anthropology, got me to see, I was as healthy as the thoughts I projected onto to others, and I was as sick as the the thoughts I would project onto others. This was so essential for my healing after ten years of narcissistic abuse. Owning what I believe about myself gives me the power to change the beliefs that work against me (remember belief is just a perspective a thought that we choose to buy into). If I’m not living the internal life that I want to live in this moment, it’s because I have beliefs (perspectives of truth) keeping my prisoner.

Right now, I have to work on myself on a daily basis to make sure that I’m aligning with love, abundance, and peace. I do slip, and I own my slips. When I take something someone says about me or a group I identify with personally, I have to look at how and why their judgments trigger me, because if I react from the same place their coming from which is fear, lack, and separation, I’m just FUELING that energy out in the world. I keep having to look at myself with honesty, respect my feelings, feel them, and then if I feel called to respond, I do it from a loving place. If you are wondering how I do this, I have the voices of those who have done it before me in my head. I think often about the journey of a butterfly when I’m going through this process. I don’t just get to fly, it takes work to soar without the weight of being a caterpillar. The things that hold us down to struggle for survival, can be transformed into what gives us our wings, IF we choose to sit in our chrysalises to process and transform those perspectives of truth that are keeping us prisoner. Many come from those insecurities and buried shame. The beautiful thing about owning my shame was, once I recognized it and shared it, it had NO power over me. It became an important part of my journey of learning to be and live my life on my terms. I know for me, I can’t live from a loving place if I don’t treat myself that way, and I get little cues on how I’m treating myself by how I treat others, including my kids. They are AMAZING teachers to show me where my insecurities and shame are still hidden. I’m so grateful for the opportunities to see how to become a better me.

Today, I commit to looking at myself when I find myself judging others. I always find this exercise VERY interesting. Part one of my book is filled with letters that are meant to trigger people to see where they hold their judgments. These are many of the situations where I had to look at my own and still do at times. When we focus on what someone else is doing, we aren’t paying attention to the one person’s feelings, thoughts, beliefs, and actions we CAN change. We give our power away when we fall into someone’s else’s energy of fear, lack, and separation. If someone else’s energy takes us down—fear won, lack won and separation won. This isn’t about what other people are doing, it’s about what WE are contributing through our own insecurities and shame (fear, lack, and separation) or our empowerment, which comes from owning what is are and transforming it to create more love, abundance, and peace. Go inward today and take a look at what you see.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

I’m grateful for time. Our relationship with time could be a piece of what is holding us back, or setting us free. Once again, it is all about perspectives being our prisons or our freedoms. When we resist time, we aren’t able to appreciate time. When we are grateful for the time we have, our memories take on a new energy, history takes on new meaning, and our lives become more meaningful. One of the messages hanging on my wall is, “Faith in God includes faith in his timing.” When things are uncomfortable, this one can really challenge us. When we are talking about time we have left with a loved one before they pass, time we are in political and social unrest, time we are in an abusive relationship, time we are at war, time we are in crisis…we often will try to resist what the time we are in is trying to show us. But each moment we are in is important!

Each step we take in this life is a part of our journey. Sometimes what we are learning during our darkest times is what fuels our purpose to serve. Sometimes it’s those last moments with someone that allow us to feel the purest form of love. Time is a gift. When we can remain present to our experiences, we actually get the VALUE of living them. When I find myself being in autopilot, I will do something to shock myself into being present again. Whether it is looking at the clouds, taking conscious breaths, paying attention to nature, playing with my dog, focusing on my kids, etc. I just take action be pay attention to where I am in that exact moment where I lost myself. My time to create, is part of my time for my head to wander. That’s when I appreciate my time to explore perspectives in the world and see where those perspectives take me. Others may judge our time, but as my mom says, “It’s none of your business what other people think about you.” No-one else is walking in our shoes. We get to choose moment to moment how we will experience the time we are given. We are accountable and responsible for how we choose to contribute our time to this life. When we live in gratitude of that, we live an empowered life.

Today, I commit to appreciating my time. Today is not about focusing on the time we don’t have. Let’s focus on the time we do have. Let’s focus on the time we were gifted by waking up this morning. What are we going to do with this gift of time today? How are you going to celebrate this moment? Are you going to read something that inspires you? Will you write a letter to a loved one or stranger? Will you exercise? Will you talk to someone you love? Whatever you choose to do with your day, appreciate the time you have to do it. Even if what you are doing is chores, be grateful that you have the time to do what you are doing. You could also enjoy the day lounging around in pajamas, whatever you do, appreciate being able to do it.

Now, many individuals are in a place of complete stress right now, many are concerned about the unknown future, but just for today, put your mind where your feet are. We have NO control over all the unknown elements of tomorrow, what we can do something about only exists in the moment we are in. Fuel that with love, abundance, and peace and you know you will be contributing to positive change in the world. Time allows you to do that, if you choose to embrace it. When we stay in our light, we guide others to shine brighter.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

I’m grateful when I see CLEAR signs. Throughout the years when I’m struggling to figure something out, I ask God for CLEAR signs to help guide me where I need to go. I’m amazed at some of the crystal clear signs I’ve gotten over the years, and I’m so incredibly grateful. I left the most toxic relationship I ever had based on a VERY clear sign, and because of that sign, I left the relationship from a place of peace within me. I knew it was the right thing to do. I’ve gotten clear signs on taking jobs, moving places, making challenging decisions, and getting the help I needed to live life from a loving place. I’m so grateful, that when I ask for clear signs AND remain open to hear the answers, the message is clear, even if I don’t quite understand it at that timing.

Today, I commit to asking for clear signs. I find that when I ask for clear signs, I seem to see them better when they appear. Lately, I’ve gone to Zoom meetings and heard the exact thing I needed. I’ve gotten opportunities where I needed to read books that were completely inline with what I’m doing. I’ve also had conversations that brought us something I needed to hear. I really know when it’s a sign when I get goosebumps. It’s almost like the Universe is whispering, “Listen.” Once we ask for the clear signs, we have to leave ourselves open to the answer. One of my favorite things to do is write out my question to God. Then go for a walk in nature with either nothing on or some sort of meditation music. I keep the intention of getting a clear answer. Then many times the answer comes on the walk. My favorite is when I see the connections through nature. I wrote some blogs called, Lessons from Nature. You can find them here.
