Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #213

I’m grateful I’m open to see my emotional triggers. When I react in extreme ways that don’t match the situation, I know I’ve been triggered. If something happens and I start playing a story in my head of how I want to tell someone off or a million things that I would love to say, I know I’m emotionally triggered. If something small makes me hide behind my walls, I know I’m emotionally triggered. None of these reactions are about what is happening in the moment. They are about an old story playing about something that isn’t fully healed from my past.

I used to be very unconscious of this and take it out on the person in front of me. I would blame them for how I was feeling. I would give my power away. Now, I see when I’m triggered as an opportunity to heal. Sometimes I catch it after I react, I’m human. I’ve learned to take the space I need to see my trigger clearly. If I reacted to a loved one, I always go back to take responsibility for my reaction and explain how I was feeling and why. This has helped my relationships grow and strengthen.

I feel so blessed to have learned how to process and learn from my emotional triggers. Doing this definitely aligns me with the energy of love, abundance, and peace over fear, lack, and separation. It helps me not be vulnerable to people, groups, organizations, products, or influencers that feed on people NOT recognizing their triggers. When we don’t recognize them, we become prey to people who know how to manipulate them to get us to do what they want. The problem is when we don’t recognize them, we are unconsciously leaking out the energy of fear, lack, and separation. Like attract like, so if someone is looking for that energy, we begin to feel the magnetic force drawing us in. It’s so incredibly dangerous, I much rather take responsibility for what is mine and transform my energy into love, abundance, and peace. The people that are attracted to that energy are the ones I love spending my time with.

Today, I’m committing to take responsibility for my emotional triggers. If the feelings start coming up, I will give myself space to see what they are really about. I will take a deep breath and release it to give me space to step outside of the chaos of the emotional trigger. If I react before I catch myself, I will look at my reaction, take responsibility for it, and then learn from the experience.

Holding myself responsible and accountable for my triggers doesn’t mean I am blaming myself either. Self-blame is just another form of self-abuse which keeps us in the energy of fear, lack, and separation. Taking responsibility for my emotional triggers is about learning from them so that they don’t have power over me and making sure I don’t give myself away by unconsciously sliding into the energy of fear, lack, and separation. When I take responsibility for the energy that is coming out of me, I can do something about it. I can sit with it to learn from it, and when I’m ready, release it through forgiveness. Then, I bring myself back to the energy of love, abundance, and peace.

If you are wondering about the other party involved, I’ve learned that when I can speak clearly from an, “I feel _____________ because____________” without an extreme reaction, the other person is more open to hear what I have to say and the communication tends to be on a healthy level, unless they are an abuser. When I was dealing with an abuser, I found it best when I kept a calm voice, never blamed, and stated how I felt, but it wasn’t about how they responded. It was about me staying in my peace, because I was less appealing to attack if I genuinely remained in my peace. This took a lot of practice, and when I got REALLY good at it, I felt strong enough to leave and I never looked back. I had to interact with him over the years from time to time, but because I don’t react, I stay in my peace, I don’t blame, and I just state facts with no emotional windows for him to sneak through, he has no power of me. Remember, like attracts like. Abusers can only have power if we are in the energy of fear, lack, and separation too. They are not attracted to people who live authentically from the energy of love, abundance, and peace.

All the things I’ve been talking about for the last 213 days are all just steps on the journey. I’m sharing my daily work to stay in the energy of love, abundance, and peace as much as I can. I will slip in and out, but I want to be in more than I’m out. There are so many amazing blessings on this journey, but the key is doing things to stay conscious daily. If you want to come on this journey with me, scroll down and sign up to follow this blog. We can only create more love, abundance, and peace in the world if we are doing the work to stay in that energy as we represent what we stand for out in the world.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #212

I’m grateful for EASY shifts in perspective. Sometimes shifting a perspective aligned with the energy of fear, lack, and separation to love, abundance, and peace can happen in an instant. I can see a quote, read a passage, hear someone speak, or just get a moment of clarity from being in the present moment. I love those shifts. The energy shift is often palpable. I love the shifts where I actually laugh out loud because it hits me so fast. It’s like a little soul cleansing.

Today, I commit to enjoying easy perspective shifts. These shifts can happen multiple times throughout the day. I catch myself in a moment of thinking that is aligned with fear, lack, and separation. Then, I consciously re-direct myself to go from a thought that is not healthy for me to one that is. The more conscious I become of the easy shifts, the more open I am for the bigger ones. I’ve started making it more like a game LOL, because why not? We can’t take ourselves too seriously. I find laughter helps me shift faster.

If you are interested on joining me on this journey make sure you are clear on how you see the energy of fear, lack, and separation. You can go back to Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #210 (Link in the title) to help you determine what perspectives are coming from a place of fear, lack, and separation. Try looking at something small, and laughing at the thought while you see a a perspective that is obviously healthier and aligned with love, abundance, and peace. Try to catch yourself in the thoughts throughout the day. Don’t beat yourself up if you notice that you are catching yourself a lot or that you look back later and see you missed some. Use this as an exercise in awareness. It is meant to be fun. Only take on perspectives that are easy shifts.

The beautiful thing about this exercise is that the more often we do it perspective shifts that didn’t even seem possible start shifting. These are the old beliefs that were passed down from generations keeping us in the energy of fear, lack, and separation. Doing this work is like building a muscle. It takes time, work, and persistence, but if we keep up with it, we get the results that we want. Don’t forget to laugh!

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #211

I’m grateful for the people who show up and the ones that don’t. I used to hold grudges against people who didn’t show up when I thought they should. I would get so angry and feel let down on a regular basis. Living with these resentments kept me aligned with fear, lack, and separation. I chased away good people in my life because my focus was on the people who WEREN’T there, instead of focusing on the ones who were. I’m so thankful that many of those people came back into my life when I aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace.

Here’s what I’ve learned: the people who are supposed to be there, always are. Not always in the way of future sense. I mean, the person or people who are there for us in a moment in time are the ones who are supposed to be there. If that wasn’t the case, the reality of the situation would be different than it was. If someone doesn’t show up that I thought “SHOULD” be there, that is my ego. Who am I to say they should be there? They were meant to be exactly where they were because that is a part of their journey. They weren’t meant to be there for me because they weren’t there—THAT’s the reality!

So many amazing blessings have occurred in my life because of a person not being there, because it made space in my life for the people who were. I trust that when I speak at virtual event, everyone who is supposed to be in that room is who is meant to be there. If a friend tells me that they got tickets and they don’t go or something comes up…it’s because they weren’t supposed to be there, otherwise they would have been there.

People have asked me if I get mad at friends who haven’t read my book. The answer is no. The people who read my book are the people it’s for. If people don’t read my book, the book wasn’t for them, at least right now. If they pick up the book years down the road, well than the book was meant to be a part of their journeys.

I love how it feels to put my energy on the people who do show up, and be grateful for the ones that don’t because if it weren’t for them, I wouldn’t have the space to appreciate the people who are there. People can pop in and out of our lives. I trust if someone is meant to pop in, they will. If they are meant to pop out, they will.

Another beautiful lesson I’ve learned is when I think someone “should” show up and they don’t, I have to look at my expectations of that person. If someone’s actions aren’t aligning with their words or I don’t feel aligned with love, abundance, and peace when I’m with them, I need to ask myself: Do I really want this person to be there? When the answer is no, them not showing up is a blessing that led to self-discovery. That leaves an opening for more people to show up that ARE meant to be there.

Right now my life is filled with all kinds of people who bring different gifts to it. I truly believe they are Godsends. If I get a call from someone who needs a friend and I haven’t talked to them for months or years, I believe if they reach out to me, it’s because I’m the one who is supposed to be there. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be available or they wouldn’t have even thought to reach out to me. There are no grudges—only what is. That is reality.

I’ve discovered that I don’t have to create stories about people showing up or not. I just sit in gratitude for both. I’ve learned from both. I’ve been challenged by both. But through it all, I’m blessed by both.

Today, I commit to appreciating the people who do and don’t show up. Just writing this piece makes me grateful for both. The pandemic created some distance between some friends and brought me closer to others. I’ve met so many new people since this pandemic began, and if other people didn’t go on their own journeys, I wouldn’t have had the space in my life for the ones who are here right now. The people who are in my life right now are EXACTLY the ones I need to be there, until they aren’t. I have regular calls with people and I have people who pop in from time to time.

Here’s something really cool about being in this energy…Just as I was typing the words above, a notification came on my screen. One of my friends who I was thinking of in the very moment, responded to a comment I made on social media. She showed up in perfect timing to deepen my appreciation. I stopped to text her and we shared a moment of connection. This is such an amazing journey. The reason I love being in this energy of appreciating both is because right now my heart is overwhelmed with the energy of love, abundance, and peace. Tears are filling my eyes because I feel so blessed. It’s that beautiful reminder that everything happens in perfect timing.

I love knowing when I’m meant to be there for someone else, because I will be the one who is there. I don’t have to feel bad or guilty for the times I’m not there, because I know the people who were meant to be there were. If the person was alone, I know that was a part of their journey too. I’ve had a lot of beautiful lessons that came when nobody showed up. I take that as a sign I needed the space to connect spiritually. I feel very strongly that if a another person or I don’t show up, it’s because my journey is taking me somewhere else and so is theirs. Why spend time in the energy of fear, lack, and separation over that? I rather stay in the energy of love, abundance, and peace.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #210

I’m grateful for the feeling of release that comes from letting my fear, lack, and separation out on paper. I’ve learned some dangerous patterns in my life as it pertains to feelings. I’ve seen patterns of numbing, avoiding, and suppressing feelings passed down for generations. I’ve seen patterns of shame for feelings and actions that were aligned with the energy of fear, lack, and separation, which only made the energy stronger. I felt so much shame and guilt that I thought people were better off without me, yet I had a smile on my face as I pretended to be okay. It took me a long time to see that living a better life didn’t mean I spoke in shiny happy rainbow colors all the time. Just like everyone else who lives authentically, I have to FEEL THROUGH whatever challenges that come my way.

I have to face myself when I feel feelings that are aligned with fear, lack, and separation. I know the dangers of living in that energy for way too long. I know that pretending the feelings aren’t their only makes the feelings stronger. The people I love get hurt the longer I stay in this energy, because I start leaking the energy out all around me.

The best thing I can do for myself and others is to get my shit down on paper. I need to see the weeds I’ve planted in my internal garden in order to pull them out at the roots. Seeing my shadow on paper isn’t always easy, but there is something magical that happens when I see her on paper, I take away her power to destroy me. I get to exhale and the feel the release of her toxic energy on my body, mind, and soul. Let me make this very clear. We are not evil because we have a shadow, darkness, whatever you want to call it. We are human. The experiencing of feelings and having thoughts that are aligned with fear, lack, and separation isn’t EVIL. It’s a learning opportunity.

We only lose ourselves to our darkness when we refuse to look at it and take responsibility for it. When we blame others for our shadow, we make our shadow bigger and give it more power. The first step to working with our shadows in a healthy way is to recognize them. For me, recognizing mine is about physically seeing her. I do that by allowing myself to write in her voice. I feel such an amazing sense of relief getting her out of my body. It’s amazing the weight I feel when I refuse to look at her and the lessons she has to teach me about the perspectives of truth (beliefs) of mine that are still aligned with fear, lack, and separation.

I know when I feel the release, I’ve done my work. I went deep enough. I’ve seen what I was meant to see in this moment, because letting go of fear, lack, and separation happens in layers. We only get what we are equipped to face. The stronger we get, the more that is revealed. For me, this has happened in a natural progression. Anytime I’ve tried to force being ready for what I’m not ready for, I struggle and still don’t get the answers LOL. I’ve learned to trust the beautiful feeling of release to let me know that I’ve done my work. My physical sign that I’ve reached that point is this need to release a GIANT exhale. I imagine any toxic energy that I was holding onto shaking free and the exhale fully releases the blocked energy spot. AWE…release!

Today, I commit to writing down any feelings of fear, lack, and separation that I want to get out of me. I’m going to let it all come out—no filter! If I’m not willing to see it, I won’t be able to heal it. I will just keep shoving it down and it will get bigger and bigger. I’m not going to show this writing to anyone else, because it’s not for anyone else. This is my stuff. If I need to work on anything I see in what I write, I will ask for the help I need and trust whoever shows up to help me is the person intended to be there on this leg of my journey. If I have trouble knowing what my next step is, I pray. Then, I trust the path that is revealed to me. Sometimes it’s a book, person, Ted Talk, YouTube video, professional, supplement, etc. The path is always revealed as long as I’m willing to let go enough to take a step towards moving into the energy of love, abundance, and peace. Today, I’m just going to focus on getting out of my body.

One important step to this process is to DRINK A LOT OF WATER! While I’m doing this, I visualize the water flushing out the toxic build-up I’m loosening up. I see it as a physical cleansing! If you do this, don’t be surprised if your body physically releases more toxins from your body than normal.

If you would like to join me on this journey, I do have a suggestion to get started. First write down everything you associate with the word FEAR. On another page, write down everything you associate with the word LACK (not enough). Finally, write down everything you associate with the word SEPARATION. This work works for me because I’m clear about what those words mean to me. If I’m not feeling love, I’m in fear. I’m not feeling abundance, I’m in lack. If I’m not in peace, I’m feeling separation.

Here’s a little example of some of the things on my lists:

FEAR

  • Hate
  • Rage
  • Blame
  • The feeling of being frozen
  • Wanting to run
  • Wanting to numb
  • Wanting to avoid feelings
  • Shame
  • Revenge

LACK

  • I don’t have what I need in this moment
  • Happiness is outside of me
  • I don’t have enough
  • Failure
  • There is never enough
  • I don’t want to be where I am
  • I’m not enough
  • Jealousy
  • Envy
  • Shaming
  • Blaming
  • Resentments
  • Should have, would have, could have

Separation

  • Divided
  • Shame
  • Guilt
  • Prejudice
  • I’m better than
  • I’m less than
  • Unlovable
  • Unworthy
  • “ALL”—describing groups of people that create divides of better or worse and good or evil
  • Us vs. them
  • Them vs. us
  • Different—when I categorize myself or situation as different and it makes me feel separate from the whole. When I use it as an excuse to stay in a low energy of being separate.
  • Loneliness
  • Vengeance

Your lists may not look like mine. It’s however you interpret the words for you. If you just use my definitions, the exercise won’t work the same if my definitions don’t fully resonate with your feelings about these words. That’s why it is SO IMPORTANT to know how YOU feel about words when you are doing inner work. If a word is a trigger word, just the word can send us down a spiral of fear, lack, and separation. The key is be be aware. It doesn’t mean someone else is wrong about their interpretations, it just means you have had different experiences that have lead you to different beliefs. As I wrote above, the word different in one way fuels my energy of separation, but used in other ways, it fuels my energy of peace.

I’m grateful for the joy I feel after connecting with others. I don’t mean just spending time with others. I mean REALLY CONNECTING with others. I can be around people and not connect, or I can make the effort to connect to someone else in a way that fully aligns me with the energy of love, abundance, and peace. These connections can be with anyone starting with eye contact and a smile or a long deep intimate conversation with someone I love. They can be through a returned comment, email, text, or note. I connect to a person when I commit to fully sharing a moment with the person. In that moment they get my full attention. Those moments can keep going or quickly end, but the joy lasts for awhile. Sometimes the joy of the connection can go on for days. I have that when I speak to specific people, so I make sure that I keep a reoccurring place in my life for them. I love the feeling of joy, so I try to schedule things in my life that I KNOW will bring joy. So many incredible blessings have come into my life because of my connections with others.

Today, I commit to feeling the joy from connecting with others. I’m going to consciously focus on my connections with others during my exchanges today. It’s date night for me tonight, so it is the perfect time to align myself with the energy of love, abundance, and peace while connecting with my partner. When we are with people for years, like family and loved ones, sometimes we can get into routines and actually get disconnected. It’s important to fuel our relationships with the attention they deserve, so consciously picking times to really focus on each other is important fuel for relationships.

In addition to connecting with the people I love, I’m committed to connecting with people I encounter. I will smile and say hello to my neighbors. I will connect with people who serve me by doing their jobs. I will connect with my readers and followers through my words and time. The more I connect with people, the more I see the human behind the labels. The more I see beyond the labels, the more I’m aligned with love, abundance, and peace. The more I’m aligned with love, abundance, and peace, the more JOY I feel. Connection becomes a superpower.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

I’m grateful for the feeling of accomplishment after making my bed. My most productive days come after making my bed. When I start the day feeling accomplished, I set myself up for success the rest of the day. I’m already in the right head space to produce. I’ve closed the door on my time for sleep and ignited the fire of taking on the day. When my day is over, no matter how much else I did throughout the day, I set myself up for a beautiful transition back into rest. I feel accomplished as I mark the moment by going back into my chrysalis to absorb the lessons of the day and start fresh again tomorrow.

Today, I commit to making my bed and feeling good about it. I haven’t been in the habit of making my bed every single day. Working at home, I sometimes am writing in bed. I definitely notice the difference when I clearly define my lines of rest and productivity. I get so much more done on the days I make my bed and move my work to a different space.

Over twenty years ago I was at a time management program and the presenter talked about the importance of the routine of getting out of bed in the morning. He made clear points on how it sets a person’s productivity for the day. I took to heart much of what he said. Recently, the bed making concept resurfaced and a lightbulb went off as I looked back at the days when I made my bed and the days I didn’t. Conclusion, I need to make my bed!

Today, I’m re-committing to this simple task that makes me feel good instantly. One of the greatest gifts I’ve noticed by doing this is that my energy is aligned with love, abundance, and peace while I’m doing it, afterwards, and when I come back to see it throughout the day. When I pull back the covers at the end of the day, I feel a peace that I don’t feel when I didn’t complete this task.

I love observing how my energy is affected by simple things throughout the day. I have to admit, I was pretty shocked how making the bed affected my energy. Becoming conscious of the things that align my energy with love, abundance, peace or fear, lack, and separation is such an incredible journey of discovery. I have learned so much about myself, others, and humanity as a whole.

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #207

I’m grateful for the feeling of abundance after writing a gratitude list. To live in the energy of abundance is to live in gratitude. The more I focus on gratitude, the more abundance I feel. The more I live in wanting, the more lack I feel. Living in abundance or lack is a choice I make moment to moment. That is why I love my gratitude lists, because when I start writing lists, my mind becomes focused on what I have to be grateful for instead of focusing my energy on all the things I don’t have.There is a trick though…keep reading. Setting goals gives us a vision, but then we have to move into the energy of the moment. What can I do right now to align myself with abundance? If I’m not taking steps right now to shift my energy into a space of receiving, I will stay in the energy that keeps me wanting. A gratitude list is one of the things I can always do in the moment to move me from the energy of lack to the energy of abundance. I love the feeling of abundance!

Today, I commit to focusing on the feeling of abundance while appreciating what I have. I’ve realized that just saying or writing the words isn’t enough. In order for me to engage in the full feeling of abundance, I have to really project my gratitude with my whole heart. I have to feel it fully as I write or speak the words. When I can sit in the full feeling of gratitude, that’s when I feel the ENERGY of Abundance after writing the words.

I will take time to write things I’m listing. That way I give myself the space to FEEL what I’m grateful for. If you want to join along, write a couple things without thinking too much. Then, really focus on what you are writing and notice the difference in the feelings that follow. This is how we authentically align with the energy of love, abundance, and peace. When we master this…we create space for SO MUCH MORE!

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #206

I’m grateful for the love I feel when I treat my body respectfully. This one took me a lot of time to figure out. I went through years of abusing my body with poor choices. I still neglect her from time to time. When I’m showing her the love and respect that she deserves, I feel a love that permeates into everything I say, do, and think. If you have been keeping up with the daily posts, you saw the last two days were about exercise and walking (click for links) for the benefits of how doing them makes me feel. These last two days is what led me here today. As I started treating my body better, I starting feeling the love for my body more clearly. I started noticing all the things my body can do. Treating my body with respect made me want to show it even more love by what I was eating and drinking. This isn’t a forced feeling like a diet. It’s a love feeling. I’m taking care of something that I love.This was just the reminder I needed to make me want to make sure that I’m showing my body respect DAILY!

Today, I commit to respecting my body. As I finished the last sentence, I picked up my water bottle. Drinking water is showing my body respect. My body needs water. When I don’t give her enough water, I’m neglecting her. As I’m writing this post so many thoughts are flowing into my head of things I can do to show my body respect today. Here are some in no particular order:

  • Stretching
  • Walking
  • Core Strengthening exercises
  • Eating healthy
  • Drinking water
  • Dancing
  • Tapping (EFT)—to work through stress
  • Meditating
  • Epsom Salt bath
  • Massage
  • Heating or icepack when needed
  • Supplements
  • Smoothies with added ginger root, cinnamon, and honey
  • Movement breaks throughout the day
  • Not doing things that have a negative effects on my organs/health
  • Chakra work
  • Plenty of sleep

These are just initial thoughts of things I can do. It doesn’t mean I will do them all. I just know the more respect I show my body, the better I feel. The better I feel, the better I treat myself. The better I treat myself, the better I treat others. The better I treat others, the faster the world changes in a positive direction… these are patterns of thoughts and behaviors I can get behind! These are the things that keep me aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace.

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #205

I’m grateful for the peace I feel after walking. No matter if I’m taking a walk in the woods, through the desert, up to the mountains, or around my neighborhood, I feel peace after coming home from a walk. Even if I leave the house fuming with anger, I come back to a place of peace in my heart. Walks for me are grounding. If I’m taking them with a friend, they can help me move through energy of fear, lack, and separation or lift me into higher energies of love, abundance, and peace. If I’m walking alone, I find my center by observing nature around me and being present. When I stop taking daily walks, I start to feel how it affects my head and heart space. When I’m not walking, I don’t give myself the place to process and it’s like my energy doesn’t know where to go.

If the weather doesn’t agree with me walking outside, I use my Simply Fit Exercise Board (link to show you what it is) to simulate the movement, and I watch or listen to something inspiring for the period of time I’m on the board. When I do that, I love the alignment I feel with the energy of love, abundance, and peace. I feel like sometimes I forget that everything happening in our bodies is connected. When I take care of my body, my mind benefits in a multitude of ways. When I take care of my mind, my body benefits in a multitude of ways. When I treat these things as separate, I pay the price in a multitude of different ways. I love knowing that I have a tool that can bring me back to peace whenever I’m ready to do the work.

Today, I commit to appreciating the peace I feel after walking. If I didn’t focus on the peace, I wouldn’t be able to stay in the energy of it very long. I use walking to align myself with the energy of love, abundance, and peace by paying attention. I do my best to stay present when I’m walking. I love looking around at the clouds, trees, flowers, plants, and wildlife. I love observing all the different noises the birds make. Some are actually quite entertaining. I love looking at the colors of the sky and different cloud formations. There are so many amazing things to appreciate. The more appreciate the more aligned I am with the energy of love and abundance. Then as I’m appreciating it all, I feel peace. I know I want to feel more peace so that I can create more peace around me. I have a lot more to offer the world when I’m aligned with love, abundance, and peace.

Today, my plan is to sit in my peace after I walk. That may just be the perfect time to meditate. In that meditation my focus will be on staying in the peace. Just typing the words feels right. We all have stressors. Knowing how we get to our peace is an important step to being able to live our best lives. Remember anything we want to feel from the outside world or expand on in the outside world, we have to live on the inside of us first. We have to know love, abundance, and peace in the deepest parts of ourselves, to feel it and understand it in the outside world. There is no ONE path to get us there. We have to find the path inward that works best for us. Once you begin this journey, door after door begins to open leading you down the path that is right for you. You will also see many doors close behind you as you learned what you were meant to learn.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #204

I’m grateful for the energy I get from exercising. When I started exercising on a regular basis, I realized I had an upswing in energy. I didn’t feel like I was hitting a brick wall around 4 PM. I felt better during dinner and clean-up. I slept better. My stress levels dropped way down, so the energy was a peaceful energy. When I stopped exercising on a regularly basis my energy dropped, mood dropped, and stress levels increased again. I’m grateful I got the reminder of how much exercise helped me in ways not related to losing weight. Exercise is such a positive tool for my physical and mental well-being. I know that when I’m making time to exercise, even if it’s 20 minutes, I’m doing something physical to align my energy with love, abundance, and peace. I’m so grateful for that.

Today, I commit to exercising to feel more energy. Right now, my weight is in the range I’m comfortable with. It’s in these times I need to remember there are other reasons to exercise beyond losing weight. One of those reasons is the increase in GOOD energy. Nervous, stressful, vengeful, angry, and/or chaotic energy is all linked to the energy of fear, lack, and separation. When I don’t take actions steps to take care of my energy, I can easily slip into cycles that will keep me in the chaos. Exercising is one of the ways I like to physically shift my energy into the space of love, abundance, and peace. It took me decades, but I finally found a few exercise programs that work well for me while also getting me the results I want. We each have to find that for ourselves. I pay attention to my energy when I’m working out to see if it’s making me feel better physically and mentally. If it doesn’t, it’s not the right exercise for me. I have friends who do all kinds of different programs. Some I like, and some I don’t. Some I will do for a short time, and others I don’t like from the first time doing it.

Finding the programs that fuels the energy we want to exude is important. I love the feeling of walking in nature, going on my Simply Fit board, and doing the Classical Stretch work out with Miranda Esmonde-White. I will go through times where I do other movement workouts, but I tend to go back to the activities that get my energy where I want it. When we pay attention to our energy, our bodies tell us what they need.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,
