Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #61

I’m grateful for the love that lives within me. I hope you realize how much the love we have within us is a TRUE GIFT. There is no such thing as too caring, loving, compassionate, etc. If this is your language, you are giving your energy to fear, lack, and separation. When we aren’t appreciating the love within us, there is a good chance we are not giving ourselves the love we deserve. In order to project authentic love to the world, we have to first treat ourselves with the love we deserve. We project how we treat ourselves outward. When we live from a place of love, abundance,and peace, we can be grateful for the love that lives within us. We know that what comes back to us is a reflection of that love, and there is nothing more beautiful than seeing that love magnify inward and outward. The difference it makes is transformational. I’m so grateful I’m now able to spot, see, feel, project, and reflect the love that lives within me.

Today, I commit to expressing love inward and outward. Loving actions, here I come! How do we express love inward? If we think about how we show others we love them, we have to do those things for ourselves. It could mean giving ourselves quality time, making a special meal, writing a love note, or going somewhere we want to go. Expressing love to ourselves can look a countless number of ways. It all depends on what’s important to us as individuals. We can’t live according to someone else’s life.

If we feed the energy of love, abundance, and peace, we discover what feels right for our personal lives and are able to express love inwardly and outwardly in a way that feels right for us. The best part about this is when we learn how to express love authentically, we start attracting people, places, and things that reflect it back to us. The outcome will look different for everyone, and that was a critical piece I learned on this journey. I learned to really live MY best life. Others might look at my life and not understand——that’s okay!

I attract and repulse according to the energy I project, which aligns me with the people who are meant to be in my life and repulses the ones who aren’t. This actually makes it much easier to express love, because the people I give it to are the ones who are meant to get it——loved one or stranger doesn’t matter. Being aligned with love, abundance, and peace gives me authentic joy in expressing love.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Did you miss a day? Do you want more?

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #60

I’m grateful for oxygen. I’m grateful for the ability to breathe it in and fill my body with the energy it needs to get through this day. I’m grateful for each moment that I remember that without oxygen, I wouldn’t be here and neither would you. On the hardest days, gratitude for oxygen is the first thing on my list. When I remind myself to be grateful for my most basic needs being met, I can slowly move from the world of outer chaos and find my way back to my breath. We are living in some very challenging times, but it doesn’t mean they aren’t necessary for our growth as humans. Remembering to breathe consciously in awareness of the power of oxygen is a catalyst that starts moving our brain in a different direction. We allow it space to slow down. The more we think and appreciate oxygen, the more conscious we are of our breath which reduces our stress. This helps us to move away from the energy of fear, lack, and separation and into the energy of love, abundance, and peace. Just reading this post you might have notice your attention more on your breath and being right where your feet are in the present moment. That’s the beautiful power of appreciating oxygen. Live abundantly!

Today, I commit to appreciating the oxygen that flows through me. Today, my focus is to look at the amazing power of oxygen. Not just breathing it, but the importance of it for human existence. My focus is on a appreciating the trees that provide it to how it interacts with the blood that runs through my whole body. Did you know that when we are stressed, we may hold our breath? This act actually effects our internal systems and our mental state as a whole since the brain needs oxygen to function properly. The more we hold our breath, the less with function in a healthy way. If we want keep our minds working right and processing thoughts to the best of it’s ability, we need a good flow of oxygen running through us. Notice when you are in the energy of love, abundance, and peace how easy it is to breathe. Now, think a stressful thought, just for a second. Notice what your body does. Did your body contract? Did you hold your breath? Okay, shake that off and let’s go back to being in the energy of love, abundance, and peace where we truly belong.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #59

Today, I’m grateful I have tools to help me through the hard days. As a single parent of two teenagers, I have days when I realize I still have a lot to learn. Even though my degree is in human development and I graduated at the top of my class, it doesn’t mean I’m not going to have challenges applying everything I know. It doesn’t mean that I’m a failure, even if some of my techniques backfire or fail. I can have moments when I realize that I can do better without attacking myself with a bad mother bat. That is what comes from being on this journey of aligning with love, abundance, and peace.

The hard days are still manageable because the self-abuse from living in the energy of fear, lack, and separation are lessened the longer we stay on the journey. The hard days that may have turned into weeks, months, and years get dwindled down to weeks, days, hours, and moments. It is all because of the tools we get along the way with an open and loving mind. So if today is a hard day for you, wrap yourself in beautiful cloak of love, abundance, and peace——now breathe! Don’t forget the tools you have. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other. If you need help with that, take a walk (in nature if you can).

Today, I commit to embracing my challenges with love, abundance, and peace. Just because we do the daily work to live in the energy of love, abundance, and peace doesn’t mean we won’t have hard days and feelings that challenge us. We aren’t made to be perfect humans. This journey is about learning and growing. If we are doing that, we are on the right track. We are going to get challenged. It is what we do with our challenges that matters. People will judge us, but it is how we judge ourselves that will set us free or keep us prisoner. It is our ability to stop blaming ourselves or others, and take action to change what isn’t serving us.

If we take accountability and responsibility for what is ours, we have the ability to change. The second we place blame, we strip ourselves of our power. WHAT can I do? How can I make a difference in this moment? What steps can I take? When we realize we have the tools by embracing love, abundance, and peace——WE THRIVE!

Even on the days when we don’t know which way is up, we can do something. What is it? You know the answer somewhere deep inside of you. Be still and embrace whatever comes. Sometimes the answer will be to take some down time. Other times we may be singled to get up and move. Each step we take will lead us to the next step, and that is all we need to know in the moment.

For those prayer warriors, pray and then keep doing the best you can in each moment. Breathe, meditate, cry, scream, stand-up, write letters, exercise, eat right, walk, run, communicate, vent, walk away, walk towards, or whatever feels right to you in the moment you are in. The more present we can be, the better our tools will work. NOW, is the time we each are given. That is the only moment we have the power to do something about.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

I’m grateful for funny animal videos. Does this seem a little light for the depths we have been going here? Yes, it is. Today is the day we are lightening it up so we can allow more joy to sink in. When we watch fun animal videos are hearts are taken to a very innocent and open form of joy and love. I’m so grateful for the brain breaks where just pure joy can enter. Living in the energy of love, abundance, and peace is also about embracing the joyful moments as much as we can. Sometimes that means finding them for ourselves. When we don’t complicate it, we see that a simple video can give us just the shift we need to move our energy in the right direction. I’m so incredible grateful for access to laughter with just a fe clicks.

Today, I commit to watching funny animal videos to remind me to LAUGH! Don’t complicate this. It literally only takes a small amount of effort to search for some funny animal videos to make you laugh. Pay attention to your body as you are watching them. Laughter is the best medicine for a reason. Let it work for you. I know I could use some more laughter in my life. This is especially helpful if you have anything creating tension in your body. Free your mind for a little bit and let it out. Don’t hold back your laughter. Feel it move through your diaphragm and burst out of your mouth. Enjoy the smile that stretches across your face. I know I will. In this moment, be light. Enjoy the present moment and let everything else melt away for the length of the video. Then shake it out. Let the experience work through your body by letting your energy move through you. Don’t worry, nobody is watching.

Here is one to get you started. I don’t suggest watching this on a full stomach, LOL.

I’m grateful for the deep conversations that give me goosebumps. Have you ever been in a conversation where you get the goosebumps or chills because something resonates to the deepest parts of you? I do! I just had one of those moments during a podcast interview. I was jumping out of my seat with excitement. When I get those goosebumps, it’s a sign that I’m connected to what is being said in such a deep way. I’m so grateful for those beautiful moments.

Today, I commit to having deep meaningful conversations with others. Today, my mission is to find someone I really connect to and get into a conversation that will ignite the best in each other. These are my absolute favorite moments. Connection to others is so important to our well-being. Connecting to others from the place of love, abundance, and peace is a whole different level of connection. The energy becomes palpable.

I’m grateful I’m here with you. Yes, you who are reading these words right now. I’m grateful that what I say and do aligns with the energy you are attracting to you. I’m grateful that the energy of love, abundance, and peace draws you to be with me right now. I wish people could understand the amount I love I feel when I hear that this Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace series is helping them to break out of the rut they’ve been in. I write these posts to keep me in the energy, but I share them in hopes that it can help someone else too. I’m overwhelmed with gratitude that you are here right now. Thank YOU!

Today, I commit to appreciating the people who are on this journey of love, abundance, and peace with me. Have you been following the blog for the last 56 days? Have you been doing the daily work to stay aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace over fear, lack, separation? Do you do your best to rise above the hate? Since I’ve been on this journey, I’ve found more and more people just like me doing their best to contribute to the change they want to see in the world. I’ve had some of the most amazing conversations with people. When the conversation is done, I’m covered with goosebumps. I’m living my purpose. Just having those conversations with likeminded people raises the frequency of the planet. When compassionate people who are committed to emitting peace, not just searching for it outside of themselves, but REALLY living it from the inside out get together——the energy triples. The bigger the group, the more positive change spreads.

I know I’m on the right track when I look around and see so much good even through all the darkness. I find the helpers. I’m attracting people to my life who truly WANT to live in love, abundance, and peace and that journey can only start within. To all the brave and courageous people who are willing to look within and work on those areas where fear, lack, and separation seep out, thank you! I love being on this journey with you. I love that there are other people out there willing to do their best to project peace.

An added thank you to all the people who purchased my book from Amazon Kindle on 9/23/20. Those sales helped Letters from a Better Me move back into the top 100 in two categories. I’m so happy to hear people want to go even deeper on this journey with me. When we live our best lives, we inspire others to do the same.

Today, I’m grateful for each beautiful conversation I get to have with a loved one. I thought this thought when my 15-year old son had come into my room to talk to me. Soon after, my 13-year old daughter came in to join the conversation. Then while were all talking, my oldest friend (since I was 4 years old) called to join our conversation. This amazing series of events made me so incredibly grateful for each time I get to share time and space with a loved one. Just being in this thought puts a huge smile across my face as I think of all the conversations I have in just one day. I’m filled with the energy of love, abundance, and peace. Life is amazing when we appreciate the people who are a part of our everyday lives.

Today, I commit to appreciating conversations with loved ones. We are in a time when checking on the people we love is more important than ever. So many people are struggling to find their footing in all the chaos. When we are in a place of love, abundance, and peace, our intuition is heightened. If you think about a loved one today, call or text them. See if you can schedule a call with someone who you haven’t talked with in a while. Enter the conversation with love, abundance, and peace in your heart. Do your best to stay in that place even if you are talking about challenging topics. If a loved one is filled with fear, lack, and separation, don’t be surprised if they resist your energy. Shine away! Allow your loved one to be where they are without letting it dull your light. Remember to stay in the energy that you want to see more of.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #54

I’m grateful for the ability to question my thoughts. Thankfully, I’ve learned not to believe everything I think. I’ve learned to see the world through perspectives, which allows me so many choices in thinking. It allows me to keep digging deeper into how our minds work. My thinking teaches me SO much about myself and others. I know I’m only ever interpreting others through my own thoughts, so now it can get really interesting when I start thinking thoughts that are blocking and restricting my positive flow of energy. I’ve learned so many techniques to help navigate my thoughts and re-direct them. I’ve even discovered that some of the techniques I use daily helped to re-wire my brain. New thoughts help to create new neural pathways, which could be responsible for finally breaking me free from some long time toxic patterns. There are so many different solutions out there when we keep our mind open to see them. Some will work, and some won’t. Being aware of where our thoughts are through it all will help to guide us to get what we need. There are ALWAYS signs.

Coming from being a suicidal teen to the woman I am today has been an amazing journey. I remember thinking that I would NEVER be able to love myself, be happy, or have a healthy relationship. My thinking used to revolve around not being enough and not doing enough. The spirals those thoughts created got VERY ugly and often scary. Thinking that the world would be better off without me was just the tip of a VERY deep iceberg. If I didn’t learn what I have, I would have stuck to the same patterns that kept me believing the same series of thoughts. When I became aware and took my blinders off, I opened so many amazing doors. That is exactly why the first part of my book, Letters from a Better Me is “Blinders Off“. Without becoming aware of where our thoughts take us, we won’t be able to see our power to change the ones that are holding us back. I’m so grateful for the ability to get out of stinking thinking and embrace the power of mindful thinking.

Today, I commit to be conscious of the thought running through my head. When I can actively see and look at my thoughts, I have the ability to take my blinders off. I love the reminder that thoughts are not facts and don’t believe everything you think. Byron Katie showed me the power of questioning my thinking over ten years ago, and her powerful yet simple messages still play in my head every time I get myself into a thought spiral that isn’t benefiting my life or the lives of others around me. One of the best things I’ve ever done for myself is to decide that I wanted to live my life from a loving place. This decision helped me to question any thinking that goes against me doing just that, but it’s not as easy as writing the words. First, I had to really figure out what my definition of love was and what it meant TO ME to live from that place.

My work over since 2016 has been my journey in committing to this way of life. I do it on my Facebook page, the blog, and in all my work. I get lessons daily from my family, partner, friends, acquaintances, and strangers. I DO NOT live this way perfectly. I need to grow and learn just like every other human on the planet. The way I grow and transform my life is what matters to me. The way I question my thoughts and become more and more open to learn is what keeps me passionate about life. I’ve changed so many of my beliefs in the last fifteen years, and I remain open to keep changing. I try to stay up on the latest brain science because what they are discovering aligns with so much of my work and is the reasons I gave up so many of my old beliefs. Everything changes, grows, and evolves. Don’t keep yourself stagnant by believing thoughts that run like a hamster wheel in your mind. Slow down, take a look at the thoughts, write them down, and question if those thoughts are aligned with the life you WANT to be living. If they aren’t, start digging. I LOVE proving my thoughts wrong when they try to keep me prisoner.

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #53

I’m SO grateful I’m responsible and accountable for my own perspectives of truth (beliefs). Learning this is what gave me my power back. Right now more than ever, I use my power on a daily basis to stay aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace. When my beliefs are aligned with fear, lack, and separation, I can question them and work on ways to re-align them——how AMAZING is that?! I can only do that by truly being responsible and accountable for what beliefs live inside of me. I don’t have to fall for fear agendas, propaganda, and pandering because I know those only lead to more fear, lack, and separation. I know other people’s negativity comes from their perspectives of truth, which come from fear, lack, and separation——just like mine does. Since I know that is not where I want to live, I make sure to find, follow, and support belief systems that strengthen the perspectives of truth that make me feel better about my time on this planet.

When I follow and believe in perspectives of truth that align with love, abundance, and peace, I know in my heart that I’m living and contributing to the best of my human ability. When my perspectives of truth are aligned this way, I can find meaning in the chaos. I can be at peace knowing my soul is safe and that my energy is contributing to the changes I want to see. I am responsible and accountable when I allow my beliefs to contribute to more fear, lack, and separation in the world and within myself too.

I’m not responsible and accountable for what anyone else contributes, I can only ever be an example by what energy I’m contributing. People will feel it and be connected or repulsed by whatever energy I put out. The more I contribute to the energy I want to see more with my beliefs, the more I can help others grow in that energy too——that is one of greatest gifts of aligning with the energy of love, abundance, and peace. It’s contagious!

Today, I commit to being responsible and accountable for ALL of my perspectives of truth (beliefs). The best things we can ever do for ourselves or anyone else is to become responsible and accountable for our own perspectives of truth. It is our responsibility to look at if our beliefs are aligning with fear, lack, and separation or love, abundance, and peace. What is right for us, will not ALWAYS be right for someone else. How I interpret words, people, places, things, situations, and the world is on ME! If I have a negative connection to someone or something, it is my responsibility to look at it and see how my beliefs are aligning with it.

No one can MAKE me believe in anything that aligns with the energy of fear, lack, and separation. Just like, no one can MAKE me believe in anything that aligns with the energy of love, abundance, and peace. I’m ACCOUNTABLE for the choices I make. Being accountable and responsible is choice I’m so incredibly grateful for. We don’t EVER have to give our power away. NO ONE can break us if we don’t give them the power to. I’ve been the victim of sexual and emotional assaults. Those people were aligned with fear, lack, and separation and they wanted me to be aligned with that energy too. For awhile, I was——NOT ANYMORE.

Today, I’m fully responsible and accountable for the energy I contribute to the world through my beliefs, and I will do my best to keep them aligned with love, abundance, and peace DAILY! Living in the energy of love, abundance, and peace isn’t tied to any ONE group, organization, country, religious belief, gender, etc. It is tied to an individual’s energy——That’s IT! When we lump people together out of fear, lack, and separation, we dehumanize them. We may just miss some of the most beautiful gifts of love, abundance, and peace.

SIDE NOTE: Shaming and blaming ourselves for when we do align with fear, lack, and separation keeps us in that energy. Being responsible and accountable has NOTHING to do with shaming or blaming ourselves. When we take responsibility and hold ourselves accountable we are committing to be better in each moment we are given. We feel things all the way through, then release them. We don’t give ourselves excuses, we just keep doing the best we can and learn from our experiences. Doing that shifts us to the energy of love, abundance, and peace. In order to contribute to the energy of peace, we first must be at peace with ourselves. In order to contribute to the energy of abundance, we first must trust we are ALWAYS getting everything we need. In order to contribute to the energy of love, we must feel the love inside of us so that we recognize it when we see and feel it outside of us.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #52

Today, I’m grateful for the times my voice represents love, abundance, and peace.

  • Have you been on this journey with me for the last 52 days?
  • Are you wanting to be a representative of the changes we want to see in the world?
  • Do you want to speak from a place where people can connect to your message?

The beauty of doing the daily work to live in the energy of love, abundance, and peace is that we listen more openly, so we are able to speak in a way that the recipient of our words can understand. When we speak from a place of peace, our intention isn’t to make people see OUR way. We understand that our beliefs are our perspectives. If our energy is aligned with love, abundance, and peace we are being the example of it. There is no force to conform. We don’t call someone names because they don’t feel the way we do. That is living in the energy of fear, lack, and separation. We are seeing a lot of that right now. We are not perfect, don’t expect yourself to be. We can be grateful for the times we do represent the energy of love, abundance, and peace. The more we notice it, the more we will be conscious of our energy during those challenging conversations. I’m so grateful when I can feel the love, abundance, and peace coming out of me. My whole being feels energized!

Today, I commit to being the voice of love, abundance, and peace in ALL my interactions with others. Yesterday, we listened with open ears and today we speak with an open heart. Start your day with a prayer for the strength, courage, and wisdom to communicate from the energy of love, abundance, and peace. Be conscious of the thoughts, feelings, and words that move through you. When dealing with a person who is coming from fear, lack, and separation: Take a deep breath in. Imagine a white light surrounding and protecting you (or angel’s wings) from the other person’s energy. Ask for guidance in how to communicate with this person from a loving and peaceful place. Take your time. If you feel the energy of fear, lack, and separation coming up inside of you, simply breathe and keep the communication to a minimum. Remember if you speak from that place, you are contributing to the energy and making it stronger. Make sure you are only contributing to energy you want to see more of. If you notice your energy has slipped, simply imagine the feelings being wrapped with love. It really does help.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,
