Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #20

If we believe and expect someone else to do or be something that we are not being the example of ourselves, we are living in fear, lack, and separation. I’ve learned through a lot of VERY hard life lessons that until I started being the life partner I deserved, I was going to take what I wasn’t doing for myself out on any partner I attracted. I also figured out the even HARDER lesson that if I didn’t treat myself with love and respect, I showed others it was okay to do the same. For a very long time, I believed being treated disrespectfully was normal. How I treated myself kept me living in fear, lack, and separation daily. Learning to an AWESOME and AMAZING life partner to myself has made it so much easier to live in love, abundance, and peace daily. I’m so grateful I learned to be the best life partner that I can be on a daily basis. This doesn’t mean I’m perfect, nobody is. It does mean when I slip into the energy of fear, lack, and separation. I treat myself with compassion and respect as I remain accountable and responsible for making the necessary changes to move me back into love, abundance, and peace. Today, I’m very grateful to be my life partner.

Are you ready to commit to being your ideal life partner just for today? This journey is a one moment a time, one step at a time, and one day at a time process. The more present we can be with ourselves, the more capable we are of living in the energy of love, abundance, and peace daily. If you struggle wondering how to be your own ideal partner, take today and write down everything you think your ideal partner is. Now, what are you not doing for yourself that is on that list? I’ve written a lot about this both in my book and in my blogs. Making this list and doing the work to become everything on my list changed my life in the best of ways. I had to see the list to realize how much I wasn’t doing to be the ideal partner to myself. Once I did the work, I attracted a person to me that is a reflection of what I project now, and it is the relationship that is right for me. What I realized is I used to want the fairytale, but what I wanted as a life partner didn’t look like what was actually in the movies at all! Now, I do check-ins with myself to make sure I’m being the best ideal partner that I can be to myself. All my other relationships benefit from me doing this, because I don’t put unrealistic expectations on others when I’m fully aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace. When I’m not, I feel it in my relationships and I know it’s time to check-in again. Be your best date ever today!

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #17

A key factor in aligning our energy with love, abundance, and peace is truly appreciating what we already have. Today, my focus is on the people in my life who show up. I feel the tears welling up as I start to think about how truly blessed I am to have so many amazing people in my life. I have people who have never met me showing up to support me in all kinds of ways, and I’ve been blessed to have opportunities to show up for others. I was supposed to be starting my book tour when things started shutting down and I wasn’t alone. I met so many authors on-line who were in the same boat, so we showed up for each other and it was absolutely beautiful. What could have been a very isolating experience wasn’t, because we came together. We have been celebrating each other ever since. I’ve actually met so many people since the pandemic in Zoom sessions and Facebook groups, people I probably would have never thought to connect to if it weren’t for this pandemic. I’ve gotten closer with family members near and far. I’ve also got to spend time with my two teenagers who were usually running around non-stop before the pandemic gave us this time together. Abundance in my relationships is off the charts, and for that I’m so grateful. I am not taking for granted the love that is extended to me and love I am so grateful to give. I’m so grateful to have a partner who despite how far away he is, he knows how to show up daily. I hope you will join me today celebrating the people who show up for you.

In order to create more abundance around our relationships, we have to show appreciation for the people who are already in our lives. If we don’t appreciate the efforts people make, we can easily start living in the energy of lack by focusing our energy on what people aren’t doing or what we wished they would do. I’ve seen this in my own life and other people’s lives. When we focus our energy around fear, lack, and separations in our relationships, we create and maintain cycles of chaos. Even when I was just beginning to find myself near the end of a toxic relationship, I made sure I to write things I was grateful for because it helped me to keep raising my energy to love, abundance, and peace, which is what gave me my strength to leave and permanently shut the door out of love for myself. I didn’t sink to a level that would take me down to create the same pattern with someone else or go back to him. If we want healthier relationships in our lives, this practice is so important! It’s not about what someone else is doing to us. It’s about the energy we are carrying within us—that is what we are responsible for! When our energy is aligned with love, abundance, and peace that is what we attract to our lives. People who aren’t in that energy may distance themselves, leave, or rise-up to meet our energy, but whatever they do is their business. Being responsible and accountable for what we are putting out into the world is our business.

HATE is HATE. LOVE is LOVE!

I’ve been listening and observing to what is going on in me and the world around me. These are my perspectives on what I’m seeing. Hate, no matter where it is aimed, is still hate. I can see this in every area: race, gender, religion, intimate relationships, familial relationships, workplace, law enforcement, politics, economics, sexual preferences, community, the list goes on. Hate is hate! 

Hate divides, separates, and causes horrible devastation wherever it touches. Hate destroys the person who is feeling it too. Think of the way our bodies respond to hate in just one day. Now, imagine that hate festering inside you for months, decades, and centuries. When we project out hate, it often lands on the people closest to us. Hate destroys relationships, communities, countries, and the environment. 

Love is love. Love opens people’s ability to see a person behind the category or title (including ourselves). Love allows space for connection, compassion, and forgiveness. No group, category, or label own love. Love can be felt by any individual who is willing to be vulnerable enough to look in the mirror and embrace their own beautiful being. Love is the purest light within in our souls. The path to seeing love lies within us, and we only can project out unconditionally (which is the only authentic love) when we see and love ourselves. We have to know love from the inside in order to see and recognize it in someone else. Love is a gift that keeps on giving. We sabotage anything we don’t feel worthy of. We have to know we are WORTHY of love by giving it to ourselves. If we depend on the outside world to give us love, when that love goes wrong it can quickly turn to hate because that love isn’t coming from a solid foundation. Love is solid when it comes from within.

Hate suffocates love. When I see people lost in their hate, I feel for them. I have compassion for them. I pray for them. Their hate doesn’t dampen my love. If I feel like I am taking on their energy, I have to remember that I am responsible and accountable for the energy inside me. If I’m that person projecting hate, I pray for me, and feel compassion for me. If I don’t want hate inside me, I have to do the work to return my energy to love. That can mean:

  • Set healthy boundaries for myself
  • Stop watching, following, and engaging in things that trigger feelings of hate
  • Remove myself from a person’s life if their energy feels dangerous to my well-being
  • Seeking justice by reporting wrong-doing even if it is within a group I am connected with
  • Meditate more to restore my sense of calm
  • Write out my feelings fully to be able to see them and work through them
  • Find a professional or a HEALTHY person/group to talk to who will help me move away from the feelings of hate
  • Remove myself from groups that amplify the energy of hate
  • Find a physical outlet to work through hate and/or rage’s physical hold on my body (swimming, punching bags, trampoline, running, lifting weights, basketball, “Dammit dolls”, punching pillows, martial arts, etc.)
  • Take deep breaths in and fully release them, because we hold our breaths when our energy is tensed up. That is NOT good for our brain or body function.

If my energy is attached to the hate in anyway, it becomes my problem. It is my job to fix whatever is inside of me that is not aligned with how I want to be living. It is my responsibility ALONE to change the energy that is moving through me. My life and the lives of the people I love are going to be affected by the energy I’m carrying around with me.

Even with all I’m aware of, studied, observed and practiced, I’m not perfect. I still have to do the work and be reminded that I’m responsible and accountable for the energy that moves through me. I still have conversations with my kids that involve how they saw something I did or said differently than what was intended. That is within my own home!! Let that serve as a reminder. People will only ever see us through their perspectives of truth (beliefs). We will only ever see others through our perspectives of truth. The question is: How do you want to see yourself and the world around you? Choose perspectives of truth that define how you want to live your life. Love is a CHOICE! Hate is a CHOICE! If someone else chooses to hate, that is on them. I know their is a lot of love in the world. I want to amplify and align with that energy, because that CHOICE feels ABSOLUTELY AWESOME to me.

Unity is in Our Humanity

Sometimes we just need to listen. When we see each other’s humanity, we stop hating what we don’t understand. We tell our stories from our own personal experiences. Each person’s story is important, because they are our truths. When we realize that a person is speaking based on their own personal truths, we understand that we didn’t live their experiences, so we may not have the same truths. It doesn’t make one more or less real than the other person’s truths. Our truths are all perspectives. We make them our reality by believing them. We can’t help others if we first don’t listen to the truths that they are believing about themselves and about others.

When we look deeper, we see beyond the categories and labels. We see the pain, joy, sadness, trauma, happiness, fear, and love within each other.

When we connect there, we unite.

We become vulnerable as the storytellers and as the listeners. We start healing, growing, and expanding. We see that each of us have the ability to change perspectives of truth, beliefs, and thoughts that are no longer working for the life we want for OURSELVES. We can’t change anyone else. We can make choices that will help us live better with ourselves and others. It’s all in how we decide to write and tell our stories.

Successful memoir writers and biographers are masterful at bringing us on a journey of connecting through story. Think of all the stories that have helped you connect to yourself and others. Right now there are so many people offering their stories on Facebook Lives amongst other venues.

I’ve learned so much about where individuals are and how they feel. I sometimes have to look past their rage, because that is the symptom of the pain that is so much deeper. Rage surfaces from unhealed parts of us that become triggered by circumstances, events, others, and even our own self-abuse. I can clearly see if a person’s perspective is from a loving place or a fear-based place. They project whichever one they are living from even when the words are not matching up with the energy they are projecting out.

We don’t have to agree with other people’s actions or views, but if we want UNITY, we have to first see the humanity in each other. Back in 6th century B.C., Greek storyteller Aesop said “United we stand, divided we fall.” We’ve seen and heard these words uttered over and over across categories, titles, genres, and venues. If we want to unite, we can’t just want to see things from our point of view and expect the the rest of the world to fall into place. Unity is in our humanity. It is the ONLY part of us that will experience the same things despite our differences. In our humanity we feel love, fear, joy, hurt, happiness, sadness, encouragement, disappointment, etc. No person’s money, religion, country, politics, race, gender, or sexual preference matter if we connect through what makes us human…LISTEN!

There are so many layers to this. This is just a small piece of a very big UNITED puzzle. But without seeing each other’s humanity, we won’t complete the puzzle. There will continue to be a missing a piece. We will never ALL believe and see the world the same way, so if you depend on that for unity, you will only ever find it in small groups which will keep you divided.

The beauty I’ve found living from a loving place is that I don’t have to agree with people’s beliefs on ANY subject and still see their value. The lessons I’ve learned from other people’s cruelty don’t strip me from seeing their humanity. I see the mentally unhealthy person, and know that it’s not safe or healthy for me to be around them, but I still learn from their story about the dangers of living life through the perspectives of truth that they believe. I see how miserable their perspectives have made them and how it’s hurt their relationships with others. Seeing that person’s humanity helps me to see my own darkness and work on shining light in areas that can easily turn dark if they go unchecked.

If I’m triggered with fear, anger, rage, or hate, I see what parts of me I need to spend time with to heal, so that I don’t project my darkness out to the world and hurt someone else. I don’t ALWAYS do this perfectly, because that is not what the human experience is about. The human experience is about learning. How can I learn if I’m not willing to listen? So, even in my differences with others who want to live from a fear-based place, I still can find a place to unite, grow, and learn. I cannot unite the world, but I can feel united with the world, and I do.

We have arrived at a point in time where we have the ability to listen to people’s stories first hand from all different corners of the world. We have the ability to learn about people’s truths that our different than ours while being safe in our own homes.

If you are looking to try to learn from truths that are different than yours, I suggested doing a meditation first. This helps me to really try to listen to the person’s story and learn from it. I pay close attention to the feelings that are running through me as I listen and see where my thoughts go. I find feelings I’m united in even if they are coming from different perspectives. I listen to hear if their perspective is coming from love or fear. I LOVE when I find people’s stories who are coming from a different way of seeing the world from a loving perspective. Those stories make my soul sing and my heart soar. The love within me expands so much more when I find voices united from loving perspectives. I don’t know if this will be true for you, but when I hear people speaking from fear-based perspectives, I feel so incredibly grateful that I learned a different way of living. Listening to them reminds me of where I once was and how much I’ve grown. Seeing their humanity strengthens my conviction on the way I’ve CHOSEN to live.

I know I need the reminder that unity is in our humanity, because sometimes it’s easy getting stuck in the chaos of what is keeping us divided. When I’m there, it hurts. I feel anxious, disconnected, confused, angry, and sometimes even vengeful if all of that goes unchecked. I know what I need to do to bring me back to peace, and writing these words right now is a part of that process. Thank you for being a part of my journey.

I Can’t Change You, You Can’t Change Me

My beliefs have never been changed by force. Each perspective of truth (belief) I’ve changed in my life has been based on if that belief serves the person I want to be and how I want to serve others. When I was younger, I didn’t consciously see my choice in how I viewed myself and the world around me.

Certain beliefs made me feel tense, angry, and rage-filled. When I would think about the thought/belief, my whole energy shifted and I often would feel sick and depleted. It took me a VERY long time and a whole lot of seeds from other people that got me to see I was making choices in my perspectives that were holding me back and keeping me prisoner.

There were some so deeply imbedded that it took voices from the Holocaust like, Viktor Frankl & Elie Weisel. Along with people like, Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa, Byron Katie, and stories about Jesus and Siddhartha to help me see that I didn’t HAVE to continue to feel this inner world of pain. Those people were just the tip of the iceberg. I’ve talked to millions of people throughout my life. I read thousands of books. Nobody changed me, but I got the seeds and made choices on what to plant in my internal garden.

When I was young, I thought the world was against me. That belief didn’t feel good to me, because I can’t control how anyone else views me. 

What I do have power over is how I view and treat myself and how I treat others.

If I’m believing something that makes me feel like a prisoner of my perspective, I work on changing that. I found that EVERY time I engage in a perspective based out of fear, I feel like I’m a prisoner. Here is an example of another change I made:

I used to feel like a prisoner when other people would judge me based on a category/title they gave me or that I am naturally.

I changed my perspective to the understanding that people are going to judge me from their own perspectives of truth. That has nothing to do with who I AM. I know if someone speaks to me in a category of ALL: all women, all trauma victims, all white women, etc. that person won’t come close to seeing me, a person is only ever looking at me through their own perspectives of truth. If they want to lump me in an ALL category— That is their loss.

I love and respect myself. I take responsibility and accountability for my thoughts, feelings, actions, and reactions.

IN THAT ENERGY, I FEEL FREE. In that freedom, I attract amazing people to my life from different genders, races, cultures, religious followings, political backgrounds, economic statuses, and so much more.The more open I stay, the more I change and grow. Not by force, by choice and action.

Though, no one else changed me, I didn’t change on my own. I got the opportunities to SEE through different perspectives. I got the tools to change. I could only do that by being open to listen to ALL different perspectives to see what fit and what didn’t based on the place I wanted to live from, which is FROM A LOVING PLACE. I’ve disagreed with many of people along the way who tried telling me how I “had to” or “should” think. I know that is part of their journey. I don’t have to make it mine.

I know from my education in science, religion, psychology, spirituality, and personal growth, I can’t project out what I don’t already have inside. If I wanted to live from a loving place, I had to love myself FIRST. I had to experience love from the source of self to even know what I was projecting out to the world. I had to find the voices of leadership through love and not fear.

I can’t make anyone else change, but I will do my best to project the energy that I want to see more of in the world. I will do my best to give the people who want to listen the same opportunities I got. I will listen to the voices of the unheard, and learn and grow from them.

I will keep choosing to do my best to contribute to LOVE in my thoughts, beliefs, actions, and reactions towards myself and others. You do you! I will be here to representing my perspectives of truth FROM A LOVING PLACE.

#MentalHealthAwarenessMonth Consciously Defining Love

#MentalHealthAwarenessMonth

I’ve been watching people throughout this pandemic handle things in much different ways. Some people are stuck in the prisons of their minds. That is one area, I know very well. This month I’ve committed to do a Facebook Live video every week of May to offer some perspectives that will hopefully assist people to tap into the light within them.

Consciously Defining Love

This week’s video is on my absolute favorite subject, LOVE! Defining love was such a vital tool in helping me to set myself free from the prison I was putting myself in. I trust that whoever is supposed to see this video, will.

To anyone feeling unworthy, unlovable, or just plain empty:

I’ve been there. You are not alone and I hope you find comfort in my words.

With Love, Compassion, and Gratitude,

Who Is My Reader?

When I was asked in the marketing meeting about who I wanted to read my book, I thought every woman could get something out of it, since it covers romantic relationships, family, parenting, career, spirituality, addiction, unhealthy belief systems, and all things self. I also thought men could gain a lot of understanding and get a lot from it too, because it would not only give them tools, but help to better communication and empower themselves to make positive change in their lives.

For those who struggle in any unhealthy belief patterns, it gives tools to get out. For those who are healthy, it may help them see how their belief systems help them and give them a better understanding of those who struggle.

The book celebrates authentic empowerment. “Empower Yourself, Change the World!” When we see our own value, we lift others up and don’t tear them down. Authentic empowerment comes from love not fear. It’s about representing what we stand for and not putting our energy into what we are against (VERY IMPORTANT in today’s climate).

The marketing team said I needed to narrow it down to the one reader. Who was the one person I wanted to get through to with my book? I had the picture of the exact person in my mind. I want to get to the woman who is stuck in patterns of abuse, whether it be self-abuse or abuse from others, because self-abuse tends to lead to abuse (mental, emotional, or physical) from either bosses, partners, children, etc. We can accept from others the level of abuse that we give to ourselves.Some unhealthy patterns were passed down so unconsciously that we have to dig down to see them.

The book deals with what belief systems got us into the patterns that get us to act against ourselves in our lives and how to change them. There are so many reasons a person can choose to pick up the book, but if I can help that one person see their value and give them the tools to lift themselves out of living a life they are not passionately in love with, I’ve helped to make the world better.

When we help others see their best selves, it creates an unstoppable ripple effect. I would have never been able to write this book, if I didn’t have every experience I did, read every book that I did, and believe everything that I did. I’m continuously learning how to better myself, and I will until my journey here is done. With that, I’m able to continually give others seeds to help lift them as I get lifted.

At the time of this post, March 3, 2020, it’s been two weeks since Letters from a Better Me has been out and a little over that for the audiobook, and the audiobook is still in the Top 100 for Domestic Partner Abuse (link). My heart feels full knowing that people are getting the seeds I’m giving. I hope they choose to plant them and that they flourish into beautiful flowers. Life is precious, we each deserve to live lives we love.

With Love and Gratitude,

Rachael Wolff

The Art of Making Quality Friends and Keeping Them

The Importance of Friends

Friendships are so important for living a fulfilling life, but if we have the wrong friend/ friend groups they can also lead us down a path that keeps us in dark places. If friendships are formed around addictions, gossip, and constant complaining; we keep ourselves from reaching higher and living better.

I’m often asked about how I stay surrounded by such amazing friends, so I started paying attention and here is a list of ten things I do to make and maintain quality friendships.

10 Ways to Make and Maintain Quality Friendships

  1. GET YOUR MINDSET ALIGNED WITH MAKING NEW FRIENDS— If you tell yourself it’s hard to make new friends, it will be. When we give ourselves this message, our body language will reflect our belief in this message. Instead of attempting to connect or engage, our bodies give a signal that we are closed off. Make sure your mind is open to actually making a new friend.
  2. GET OFF YOUR ELECTRONICS—Engage with the life you are having in the moment. An opportunity for a conversation can start anywhere, but if you aren’t where your feet are, you will miss it.
  3. STOP LOOKING DOWN— Look up and make eye contact with others. You won’t connect with others if you don’t make eye contact. When we look in the eyes of others, sometimes we see ourselves. Those are the people to engage with; one simple comment can turn into a 30-minute conversation and lead to a great friendship. 
  4. CONNECT LOCALLY THROUGH GROUPS AND VOLUNTEERING—Find groups that interest you and/or volunteer with a local cause you support. You will meet plenty of potential friends through your passion for your community.
  5. WALK YOUR NEIGHBOORHOOD—If you live in a good walking area and have the right mindset, you have the opportunity to connect with plenty of people who live right by you. If you have a good conversation, you could ask if they will be here the same time tomorrow. Then it may become a regular thing.  If you don’t live in a good walking community, find a local area where there are opportunities to connect with other people who are walking—Always remember steps 1-3!
  6. INVEST IN YOUR DEVELOPMENT— This will mean something different for everyone; it can be personal, professional, spiritual, financial, educational, and/or physical. If you go places to invest in yourself, you will meet others who are working on the same thing. THOSE ARE YOUR PEOPLE!
  7. SHOW UP IN YOUR KID’S LIVES—If you have kids, show up at events.  Connect with the parents of the kids that they are hanging out with. Some you may want nothing to do with, but others may turn out to be your best friends.
  8. KNOW WHO YOU ARE WITH— We each will have people who are around us who have different strengths. We can’t expect people to be who they are not. If someone makes you laugh, enjoy that quality. If someone is good when your stuck in a storm, let them carry your umbrella. Just don’t expect more from people than where their strengths are. When we allow people to be exactly who they are, we keep old friends too, because we remember why we love them in the first place.
  9. DON’T EXPECT OTHERS TO DO WHAT YOU ARE NOT DOING FOR YOURSELF— When we take care of ourselves, love ourselves, respect ourselves, and show up for ourselves—We attract people to our lives who will treat us the way we deserve. 
  10. KNOW WHEN FRIENDSHIPS ARE UNHEALTHY AND WALK AWAY— Friendships are meant to lift us up. If friendships are making you feel under stress on a regular basis, you do have the option to end relationships that aren’t contributing to you leading your best life. If we feel like the friendship isn’t serving a positive purpose in our lives, we don’t have to stay in them. This doesn’t mean if a friend is struggling, we walk away. It’s being healthy enough to know what is a drain to our energy, and what is being the best friend we can be in someone else’s time of need.

I hope this list helps! Enjoy the journey!

Barnes & Noble Naples, FL

Naples Barnes & Noble is like coming home to me. I’ve spent so many hours in these stacks of books. Tina Wainscott of the Seymour Agency, who is now my agent, and I used to come here when I was going through a very dark time in my life. I would look through books in the sections, where now my book sits. I would let the Universe guide my fingers as I would pull a book from the shelf. Now, I think about how just maybe, a woman struggling to find her worth will do the same thing and come across my book. She will look inside and realize, this is exactly what I’m looking for.

I have purchased so many of the books that got me where I am today from this store. There was no where else I wanted to be on launch day! Tina shows up with beautiful flowers with a Letters from A Better Me sign tucked in, perfect, just perfect! The President of the Seymour Agency pleasantly surprises us for this special moment.

My partner and my kids are by my side. They finally get to see the culmination of everything I’ve been working on. If you have or have ever had teenagers, you probably get the power of a moment like this. For the past two years, they have been listening to me talk about writing, but not seeing the bigger picture of what that means. In this moment, they got to see their mom’s name and book looking back at them.

I got there at 11:30AM, by the time I came down to sign stock copies, there were only two left. Ten more were ordered for the store before I left. On Wednesday, I heard that people were already beginning to reserve the upcoming order. I feel so incredibly blessed to not only have the support of this amazing community, but of Barnes & Noble for making sure people in Naples had a place to go to get their copy!

A Truly AMAZING DAY

Standing in a labyrinth feeling the desert breeze in Sedona, Arizona, I ask myself “Can I write a women’s empowerment book?”

YES!
