Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #49

Taking action towards living the life of our dreams takes courage. Each step is something to be grateful for. I’m grateful for the courage to take action. I really want anyone who is reading this today to celebrate anytime you’ve taken a step towards your dreams. Even if part of taking a step is reading these posts daily. Aligning our energy with love, abundance, and peace is a GIANT step to living our dream lives, because without being aligned we will sabotage ourselves. When we align with the energy of fear, lack, and separation, we might get rich, but still live in lack, We might see success, but constantly fear losing it all. We might think we made it, then separate ourselves from our moral fiber that makes us a good human. To me, that’s not winning.

I want my success to be completely aligned with what brings out the joy in me and others. I want to know I’m serving my purpose, and that the people who are brought to me are seeking to experience life from a place of love, abundance, and peace. I know that everyday I take action, I have the chance to contribute to a better life for myself and others. If you know me, and are reading this, you might say, “I bet she’s crying right now.” You’d be right. The other day, I read something that really hit me.

I feel a deep love in my heart and tears well up as I touch this sacred and Divine part of myself.

Dr. Judith Pentz, Cleanse Your Body, Reveal Your Soul (p.111)

Have you ever had that feeling? Any time I have the courage to take actions that are aligned with love, abundance, and peace, I feel this in the deepest parts of me. The gratitude I feel for that is overwhelming that my body can’t contain it, which is why cleansing tears run down my face.

Today’s challenge is to take action towards our dreams. I don’t care what your dreams are! Breathe in, align yourself with love, abundance, and peace; release your breath——NOW SHIFT! This energy only serves the best in ourselves and humanity if we do something with it. Be courageous and take action. How do you want to use this energy in your life? What do you want to accomplish? Who do you want to serve? What step can you take today? NOT tomorrow, right now! It doesn’t have to be a huge step, just a step. Then make the same commit the next day to take another step. We can only get there if we are brave enough to keep moving. I’m not separate from you here, I will be taking at least one step today.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #48

I’m grateful for so many health and wellness options. When we start living in the energy of love, abundance, and peace we start attracting health and wellness to us in the most incredible ways and because we are ready to plant the seed, more options appear. Here’s an example, I’ve been on this specific journey now since I went to North Carolina to retreat into the mountains to re-center myself. While I was there, I started eating better, and a friend introduced me to a stretching exercise program that made my body feel better than it has is years. Since I came back from that trip, I started writing in my gratitude journal every day. Then I uncovered a block I had with financial abundance, so I started adding meditations and writing practices to my daily routine. That’s when the idea for this blog series came up to help me keep my thoughts, beliefs, and actions aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace.

Now, this whole time: I’m eating better, exercising, losing weight, writing, and having a positive mindset. A couple days ago, I was asked to fill-in for someone as moderator on an author panel. I got to check out two books loaded with tons of tools and practices using more health and wellness modalities. Interviewing these women was such a treat, and I learned more about some mediation practices that I knew very little about. I even learned about a specific meditation practice that aligns perfectly with the work that I do. It didn’t stop there, We also talked about the importance of nutrition and breaking patterns that aren’t serving us. This is the amazing thing about this journey. When we fully align with it, more ways to take care of ourselves appears. Here’s the best part, I didn’t spend any extra money to do it.

When we start living in the energy of love, abundance, and peace the doors to living healthier and more aligned lives appears. If you have money to spend, someone may tell you about a course, yoga class, Tai Chi class, meditation circle, drum circle, singing bowls, books, meal plans, the list goes on. When we are not aligned with fear, lack, and separation we aren’t fighting against ourselves to get healthy. I’m so grateful there is so much out there when I set my intention on living my healthiest life. Oh and by the way, I did my first pull-up EVER the other day. Yes, my body is healthier and stronger now than it has ever been.

Today’s challenge is to set the intention for a healthy body, mind and soul. Pay attention to how you are guided to take care of yourself. We can let the internet take us to places that will help us feel better, or that will contribute to us feeling worse. If an idea pops into your head to try a different kind of meditation, exercise, mindset practice, mindfulness exercises, etc. Go down that rabbit hole and find your wonderland of the adventure of wellness. Don’t stop there! Keep going! My daily routines have become such an integral part of my day, where I used to convince myself that I didn’t have the time. The truth is when I made the energy of love, abundance, and peace take the lead——time appeared. Enjoy the adventure.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today, I’m grateful for the people who rise above the hate. It’s the people who rise above the hate during our dark days of humanity that inspire the world to shift in a positive direction. We have to shift ourselves away from the energy that keeps us in the cycle on of fear, lack, and separation, which is HATE. When we can rise above that by seeing that it is a choice to accept it or not to, we empower ourselves to shift our energy to love, abundance, and peace. EVERY TIME I watch someone who does this, I feel empowered to do the same. My energy is aligned with their message because love, abundance, and peace is at the core of compassion. Seeing it in the actions of others is such a beautiful blessing.

Today, I’m focusing my attention on the people in my life who rise above the hate. These are people who will not engage in the hate of others because of race, gender identity, political status, religious beliefs, economic status, criminal records, etc. These people don’t hate the people who hate. In their minds, their is no justification for hate.

Do you have people in your life that are the examples of this? Have you read stories of people who were like this? I know I have, and the more I focus my attention on it, the more I see. It reminds me of another great role model from my childhood, Fred Rogers. When we look to the people who are helping (serving from a loving place), it helps us connect to the hope, compassion, love, and kindness within ourselves and in the world.

When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’

Fred Rogers a.k.a. Mr. Rogers

Today, I commit to rise above the hate. Anytime I feel myself beginning to slip, I will “look for the helpers.” I will focus my energy on the ones who had the strength before me to rise above it. The people that despite the hate that confronts them, rose above it. I commit to feeding the energy of love, abundance, and peace within me. The more light I shine from within, the more it will be seen in the world to be that example for the next person. Even in the time it took me to write these words, more and more people who rise above the hate keep coming to mind as far back as the first stories I remember hearing about Jesus. He was my first example of a human choosing to rise above the hate. I also think of women like Maya Angelou whose voice rings in my ears reminding me to rise. Today, let’s rise by taking strength away from the energy of fear, lack, and separation and giving it to the energy of love, abundance, and peace.

“Let no man pull you low enough to hate him.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.

This to shall pass is one of the best mantras I’ve ever learned!!! This isn’t just for the things that we don’t like that are happening, it’s a reminder to pay attention to the good that is in our lives too. This too shall pass, is the understanding that we are not stagnant! Life is not stagnant! We are constantly in flow whether we choose to resist or not, is up to us. When we understand that life is like a river, we can choose to be grateful for the moments we get to celebrate, the ones we get to learn from, and the ones that can challenge us on a much deeper level. Each moment passes with gifts to offer us if we remain open to receive them. Living mindfully gives us space to remember life is movement——A journey.

I know 2020 has been a year of movement beyond what many of us ever thought possible, but it is moving. We can move with it in the energy of love, abundance, and peace or the energy of fear, lack, and separation. Whichever energy we fuel ourselves up in, we make stronger in the next moment. If we choose to live in the energy of fear, lack, and separation, we can be grateful that this too shall pass. In the next moment, or the one after we can choose differently. We are never trapped in an energy that we don’t want, because this too shall pass. Let’s be grateful that every moment we get here passes, so if we don’t want to stay in the same mindset, we don’t HAVE to. That is the beauty of this incredible journey, no matter how many twists and turns, ups and downs, and crossroads we face, this too shall pass.

Today, whether we are celebrating, struggling, and/or completely overwhelmed, SLOW DOWN! Take three long deep breaths in, and three deep breaths out. Repeat with every breath, this too shall pass. Let’s give ourselves the space to appreciate the moments that are joyful, and create space from the moments we are struggling through. Embrace the moment like a mother’s loving arms wrapping around her baby. For those whose relationships with their moms don’t feel loving and/or safe, imagine the most giant angel wings surrounding you in this space. Just breathe——this too shall pass. Remember life is ever-changing and transforming. We choose how we want to live moment to moment. Allow yourself to wrap whatever moment you are in in the energy of love, abundance, and peace. Pay close attention how your energy shifts as you give yourself the space to breathe and accept this moment in time, and with that the moment is over and you are given a new one. What will you do with it.

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #45

Serving humanity from a loving place is one of the biggest blessings to the givers and the receivers. There is something very different about the energy when someone is serving from a loving place. I speak a lot about this in my book. Some people think they are, but really they are serving others from a place of lack, a place of fear. They are trying to find their worth in serving others. When this happens, they put out expectations and when they are not met, they are hurt making them feel worse. This only contributes to more fear, more lack, and more separation. Over time, serving this way depletes them.

When a person is serving from a loving place, you can feel it in their energy. They are shining their light and the receiver feels the warmth. It’s truly beautiful.Think about the service you get in restaurants. Most of us have had people who are serving because they need that pay check, but really don’t want to be serving us. Depending where we are in our own energy, we will feel their energy consciously (making us want to share our light with them to help to brighten theirs) or unconsciously (react with more fear, lack, and separation). Hopefully, most of us have also had the servers who we can feel the positive energy exuding out of them from an authentic place.

We can see this in every facet of life. If a person serves out of fear, including the fear of not being in God’s good graces, the service still comes from fear. It doesn’t have the same effect on the givers or the receivers. It fuel more fear, lack, and separation in the world. Now, those ones who give from a loving place, they are full before they give, and they are full after they give. Those are the people I’m focusing my gratitude on today. It’s their lights that light up the world. Pay attention!!! There are people who serve from a loving place EVERYWHERE!!! You may have to look harder for them at first, but once you put your intention of seeing them, you will. Each one you see, be grateful. Just by doing that, we increase the energy of love, abundance, and peace in the world. If we truly want to change the world, and move out of the cycle of insanity (doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result), we have to put our energy on the change we want to see.

Today’s challenge is to serve humanity from a loving place. This means we are practicing kindness, compassion, empathy, and faith. When we put out the intention that we are committing to serve humanity from a loving place, people will show up to serve. You might get a call from a friend, a text, see something on social media, see someone needing a random act of kindness when you are out, witness something that calls for your service, etc. It could be something as simple as talking to the cashier with kindness and support. In the times we are living in right now, it could be something bigger. Trust the guidance, and serve accordingly. If it is you who are brought to the situation, it’s your opportunity.

We are in need of people who are willing to look past any differences and serve humanity from a loving place. There are so many people caught in struggles beyond their control and they are getting swept up by the energy of fear, lack, and separation. Someone coming in from an authentic place of love, abundance, and peace, might be EXACTLY what they need to help them shift out of that energy. We can only serve from a loving place if it’s authentic. Otherwise, we are serving from a place of fear, lack, and separation. Even the feeling in our bodies is completely different. Even if what you have to give is a prayer or a positive thought—DO IT! Don’t judge the love in your heart, just spread it. Love and fear don’t exist in the same moment. We are either serving one or the other, and it takes us being in our full consciousness to hold onto that love during these trying times. Do the work. If you need help, my book gives tons of tools. No one can do this work for you. It is something you have to consciously decide to do and commit to. All I can tell you is humanity needs you, exactly you. We all have a light to shine, we just have to decide if we are tired of sitting in the dark.

If we want to align with the energy that will make this world better, we have to put our energy in a place that lifts our energy to that level. One of the places I love going for that is searching out compassionate people in the world. I love watching, listening, and reading stories of people rising up to help others in some way. I’m blessed to be surrounded by many compassionate souls, so I watch friends and strangers come together to pray, stand, and support people despite any differences, but through the connection of humanity. It is very easy to get lost in the division, caused by feeding the energy of fear, lack, and separation. I have so much love and respect for the people who rise above it, and listen, speak, and share from the heart, because that is how we feed the energy of love, abundance, and peace.

Today’s challenge is to commit to practicing compassion with ourselves and others. First, we have to start inside. If we are not compassionate to ourselves, we won’t recognize when we are not being compassionate to others, ESPECIALLY those who think differently than we do. First, if you are looking in the mirror and criticizing yourself, STOP! See the beautiful soul that you are. The better you nurture and love yourself, the easier it is to take care of yourself. Abusing ourselves, only keeps us in the energy of fear, lack, and separation. By doing that, we create more of that energy in the world. So if we want more love, abundance, and peace in the world, we have to feel it inside and that all begins with having compassion for ourselves and end the self-abuse. I do know this isn’t a one day challenge, but we have to start somewhere. Why not here? Why not now?

Once we show ourselves compassion, it will be much easier to show compassion to others, because remember just like us, we only ever can share what is inside of us. If a person is filled with the energy of fear, lack, and separation, their perceptions of themselves and others is driven by that. If a person is filled with the energy of love, abundance, and peace, they will look at themselves and others through that lens. Our compassion, can be the light that someone needs to shift their energy to a more loving and peaceful place. Spend time watching how this happens. Search out good Samaritan stories. Pay attention to what happens in your body when you watch them. Now, imagine for one second, you have the power to create that shift in energy. How does that feel inside you? Start with how to make yourself feel that way, then extend that energy out.

I’m SO grateful for the books that have helped to empower my life. When I ask God how to get me out of my own way, I’m usually given signs through books. This is just one of my 5 shelves filled with books that have contributed to my ever expanding mind. Byron Katie, one of my favorite authors says, “There are no knew thoughts.” Most of the books I read align me with the energy of love, abundance, and peace. They may say different things, but what I find is so many of the messages overlap in the most beautiful ways. I feel like we all interpret the world with just enough of a different spin. When we are the writers of these books, how we’ve written them is how we internalize and process the messages. Whatever books the reader resonates with are most aligned with the energy they feed inside of them. What’s interesting to me is when people argue and debate about different ways of viewing the same idea. Someone thinks they are right and the other is wrong, when really, we are all just absorbing information through our own lenses. We might absolutely love a book and see things differently than the author interpreted it. I’ve come to the place that I don’t expect to be 100% aligned with what I read, but what’s important is it helps me to align with the energy that feels best to me.

Today, I commit to reading daily to align my energy with love, abundance, and peace. What book can you ready that will help you align your energy with love, abundance, and peace? Did a book come to your head right as you read the last question? If so, that is the book. If a book didn’t come to your head, write down the question. Take a few deep breaths, and see what comes to you. It may not be this very second. A friend may mention a book out of the blue, or you see an ad, do a search, or someone gives you a book. When it’s the right book, something in your body will tell you. I’m amazed at how this works. Commit to reading just a few pages a day. If you end up reading more, great. If you prefer audiobooks, do it that way. I have over a hundred audiobooks and have listen to some two or more times. I love audiobooks, because I’m not trying to fit something else into my schedule. My favorite times to listen is when I’m walking or driving. Just remember, we want to surround ourselves with the energy we want to see more of. We have to fuel our senses to spot it and absorb it. Reading and/or listening to books that align us with the energy is a great way to do it.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #42

I feel so blessed and grateful I attract the energy I put out into the world, because I know if I don’t like what is coming back to me or where my focus is going, I can change it. My energy being aligned with love, abundance, and peace attracts people to me and/or my work that are aligned or noticing they want to be aligned too. I’m contributing to the collective energy that I want to see more of in the world. I see so many people aligning, questioning, shifting, growing, and expanding. If my energy wasn’t aligned, all I would see is the ongoing chaos created by the same cycles of thinking that come from fear, lack, and separation. I have to make choices daily to project, reflect, and attract, but they are MY choices. I find that incredibly empowering!

Today, I commit to paying close attention to what I’m attracting to me with the energy I’m putting out in the world. When I finally got this lesson, it truly changed the trajectory of my life. I repel and attract according to the energy I’m putting out in the world. Knowing this empowers me to make necessary changes to align my energy with love, abundance, and peace. This doesn’t mean that I don’t have challenges, I do. My perspective on my challenges is what I choose to dig into. If I don’t like where my head is going, I know it’s my job to work on that energy to shift it away from fear, lack, and separation. If I’m stuck in the energy of blame, I’m in a unhealthy cycle that projects, reflects, and attracts more situations and people I can use to strengthen that energy, which comes from fear, lack, and separation. If I choose to project the energy of love, abundance, and peace (we have to have inside us in order to project), I attract people and situations that help me to stay aligned with that. It’s so important to pay attention and notice where our energy is going and what we are attracting with it. When we do, it empowers us to take charge of where our energy goes.

Sending prayers out to all of those who have not discovered their power. When you are ready to embrace the energy of love, abundance, and peace on a daily basis your life WILL change. The reality you see will change.

I’m grateful for life’s storms for these reasons…

  • I’ve learned to be weatherproof
  • I’ve learned to be resilient
  • I’ve learned to be flexible
  • I’ve learned that I can ALWAYS find a silver lining IF I WANT TO
  • I’ve learned that my perspectives define the level of aftermath after the storm clears
  • I’ve learned that this too shall pass.
  • I’ve learned that the sun and moon don’t disappear no matter how hard a storm hits
  • I’ve learned that sometimes storms provide the freshest water and nourishment for the Earth and it’s inhabitants
  • I’ve learned that no matter how dark the sky gets, loud the thunder rumbles, fast the tornado hits, and powerful the hurricane is HUMANITY will rise up.

When I’m caught up in my own storms, I’ve learned to find gratitude to help me re-align my energy. Life is not always going to be pretty. There are many storms that are out of our control. We don’t HAVE to align with love, abundance, and peace in the storm, during, or after the storm—some won’t. Realizing it’s not about what anyone else chooses to do that makes us appreciate the storms, it’s about what energy we choose to feed: love, abundance, and peace or fear, lack, and separation. The choice is ALWAYS ours. How you interpret life’s storms is your business. I will choose to stay in gratitude for all the amazing lessons I learn in this journey of life.

Today, I commit to being open to learn from life’s storms. Being open is the key to shifting belief systems, thoughts, and feelings that no longer serve us. Being open to learn from the chaos that life throws are way is an amazing tool to living a better, happier, and healthier life. When we get stuck in the storm long after it passes, we get trapped in the cycle of fear, lack, and separation. Some people are will stay in the storm no matter how devastating it is (fear). Others feel like we didn’t deserve being in this/that storm (lack). Then there are those who will do everything thing in their power to stay in a place of, “Nobody understands” (separation). The sucky part of this, just like a bad storm collecting like energy, this builds within us and keeps us from seeing the light after the storm. I’ve been here. I’ve embraced that energy of fear, lack, and separation through multiple storms in my life. The path it took me on wasn’t pretty and there was a lot of aftermath. When I truly opened up to see the storms differently. They left less aftermath, and what I found is the areas the storm destroys are the ones I needed to be re-build, because they were not stable. I needed to let go of some of the beliefs that kept me from living in the energy of love, abundance, and peace. Today, when the storms come, I’m open to learn. It all began the day I decided pull lessons from some of aftermath. Just seeing different ways to look at things on paper, really helps us see that we do have choices.

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #40

Today, I’m so grateful and blessed that I have the ability to shift, change, and grow. When I saw the damage that the belief system, “People can’t change” created, I made the decision to start proving it wrong. First, I was blessed with watching someone I love shift, change, and grow immensely. Then, guess what, brain science proved it wrong too. Our brains have the ability to change and shift as we implement new belief systems and practices into our lives. That belief, if people are damaged, they will stay damaged, isn’t true. Now, this doesn’t mean YOU can change anyone else. YOU CAN’T!

People can only change if they want to. It’s an inside job, but here are some of the beautiful things I’ve discover on this journey of shifting, changing, and growing: The way I see others shifts, grows, and changes. If the person’s energy doesn’t align with the new energy I’ve acquired, they either fade out of my life or grow with me (I’m grateful for both). There is no force. I also attract new people (like a magnetic force) who are moving in the same direction as I am. Knowing these new truths has made me even more grateful to choose to shift, change, and grow in the direction of love, abundance, and peace.

The people who are in my life now are AMAZING! Even with all the fear, lack, and separation in the world, the magnetic pull of love, abundance, and peace is strong for the people who are committed to living in this energy.

Today, I commit to honoring my ability to change what no longer works in my life. If something isn’t working in my life, I can choose different ways to look at the situation. When I see that I’m not stuck in my thinking, I allow my feelings about the situation to shift. When I allow my feelings to shift from fear, lack, and separation TO love, abundance, and peace, a whole new set of options and possibilities opens up to shift, change, and grow. When I learned that I never have to be stuck with beliefs that don’t serve the way I want to live, I freed myself to become the best version of me. Not by changing anything outside of me or anybody else’s behavior, but by becoming responsible and accountable for the energy I project. Now, when I go down into fear, lack, and separation, I don’t stay there long AT ALL. I used to live there. Now, I just visit from time to time to learn where I still have work to do.

Today, notice if you have belief systems that are keeping you from living in the energy of love, abundance, and peace. Remember this isn’t saying we won’t have feelings of sadness, loss, fear, anger, etc. It means we wrap our feelings in love instead of numbing, running from them, or projecting them onto others out of fear. It helps me to visualize. Here are some examples:

  • Being wrapped in a protective cocoon/chrysalis so we may develop our wings to fly.
  • Being wrapped in the protection of an angel’s wings
  • Being held by a nurturing mother
  • Being protected and safe to heal in a white healing light

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,
