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,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #51

I’m grateful for my ability to listen openly. I don’t have the same political, religious, lifestyle, economic, or racial beliefs as ALL my friends. We each vary in our beliefs based on our own perspectives of truth (beliefs) that came from our history up to our present moment. I didn’t know what a gift it was to be able to listen until I watched so many people not listening to each other. I’ve seen the damage that not listening does to the collective. I see the damage it does to relationships with family, friends, loved ones, acquaintances, co-workers, and strangers. I see what judging others according their attachments to fear, lack, and separation does.

When I can listen in alignment with my soul’s energy, which is love, abundance, and peace, I can hear beyond what someone’s words are saying. If someone wants to move out of the energy of fear, lack, and separation, they will. Changing others isn’t my job. My job is to be the example of what I’m representing inside/out, and I can only do that by listening openly. Many people fall into the energy of fear, lack, and separation because they don’t feel heard.

I do my best to listen for the love, abundance, and peace someone is striving to get to, but hasn’t realized is inside of them. I’m grateful I was given this gift, the other option feels way too painful and restricting. When I listen, I learn. I see that all my beliefs are choices just like they are for anyone else. When I listen, I see and hear options of thought that feel like freedom or a prison, then I get to listen to voice inside me and choose.

Today, I commit to listening from the energy of love, abundance, and peace. This is the energy it takes to listen with open ears. When we are listening through the energy of fear, lack, and separation, we are looking for ways to fear more, prove lack, and react in ways to stay separate. We look for what makes us different instead of what makes us the same. When we are in a place of fear, lack, and separation, we can only hear what we agree with and we won’t even consider seeing another way of thinking. We dehumanize the people who are speaking if we disagree with them. You can find proof of this in the comments of most political posts. When we come from a place of love, abundance, and peace, we don’t have to talk down to others like their way of looking at things doesn’t matter. We see the human under their beliefs. We don’t have to agree with them. We actually listen in search of what connects us to each other. That is what the energy of love, abundance, and peace does. When we listen with open ears, we lower the defensive walls between each other and find a space for peace. When there is peace, we are open to shift and change beliefs that no longer serve us.

Pay attention to how it feels inside you when you listen from an open place. While your listening, don’t take a side, just try to figure out where the other person is coming from. Try listening between the lines. See where their beliefs align with fear, lack, and separation and/or love, abundance, and peace. Sometimes when we listen deep enough, and ask the right questions, the person’s energy might shift in a positive direction as they hear themselves speak. The best we can ask for is when someone starts to see themselves clearly.

One of the things I like to remember when I’m talking/listening to people is they are only seeing their reality through a straw-hole, just like I am. We get a very little view of the big picture. Where we focus is what we will see. I can move my straw as much as I want, but I’m only ever going to see that small viewing area. If I want to see more of the picture, I have to move my straw around, I do that by listening openly. Once I move the straw, I decide if that is an area I want to look into more or keep on moving.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Today’s piece is dedicated to Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Her ability to listen helped to open doors in so many ways. Thank you for your service to humanity.

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #47

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.

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #41

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

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #39

The most important person to know we are lovable and worthy is ourselves. If we don’t feel that we are lovable and worthy, we project that energy out into how we VIEW our realities. If someone else thinks we are lovable and worthy, but we don’t, we will come up with all the reasons this isn’t true. We self-abuse, then we try to find reasons the other person is lying to us. We sabotage any amount of affection that is given to us that goes above what we give to ourselves. Now, I go A LOT deeper into this in my book.

This is not a one day process. First, we have to truly see what our blocks are to feeling lovable and worthy. Get in the mirror and let yourself know how lovable and worthy you are exactly how you are in this moment. Feel the abundance of loving yourself and giving yourself the peace of mind knowing you are worthy of this amazing journey.

We are all here for a reason and being EXACTLY who we are is going to contribute to the collective in ways that we will never understand. We were created to be the person we are in this moment, so why not celebrate ourselves? Let’s stop squelching our light. Let’s be grateful for what we bring to the table by being our authentic selves. Our authentic selves lie underneath the energy of fear, lack, and separation that smothers us and keeps us prisoner. Our authentic selves are the essence of love, abundance, and peace that make us shine in our own authentic way!

Today is a good test to see where you stand. Say the statement, “I’m grateful that I am lovable and worthy EXACTLY as I am!” Now, look in the mirror and say it again. Be honest with yourself about what comes up and write it down. Look at any beliefs that come from places of fear, lack, and separation. Now imagine any of those feelings you have for yourself being wrapped in a cocoon of love and compassion. Wrap yourself in the love and support that you would give someone you love.

The person you are deserves your love and support. Whatever you are rejecting, you are projecting that lack out into the world and it is coming back. The only way to stop the cycle is to do the inner work. If you are reading this right now and you love and support yourself exactly as you are—Embrace that! Really feel what that means. It’s a beautiful thing.

Even in our darkest times, if we embrace ourselves with love and support—LOVE WINS! The light within in us is given permission to shine through the darkness and releases us from the heaviness of a feeling. That is how we are able to feel ALL of our feelings in a healthy way without being prisoner of them.

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #38

Sometimes we forget to check on our progress. Anytime our thoughts, feelings, and actions are aligning with the energy of love, abundance, an peace, CELEBRATE with GRATITUDE. Each moment we are making choices in what energy we feed. Those really tough ones are the ones I LOVE to celebrate. When others are wanting to fuel my feelings of fear, lack, and separation, and I CHOOSE love, abundance, and peace—I feel EMPOWERED. I feel like I’ve taken the reigns in that moment and am standing in MY TRUTH. I’m so incredibly grateful!

Today’s challenge actually comes from my book. Writing our own personal mission statement is a way to committing to living in the energy of love, abundance, and peace. Think of companies, especially non-profits aimed at helping others. When someone sees a mission statement, they know what that organization stands for. The best ones won’t say anything that they are against. When we can only talk about the things we are against, we are coming from a place of fear, lack, and separation.

How do you want to serve our planet and humanity from a place of love, abundance, and peace?

What does that look like to you?

Sit down and really figure this out. Once you have it down, write it on a 3×5 card and put it up somewhere you will always look at it. This is your reminder of how you want to be living. When you know this and can see it in front of you, it makes it easier to actually live, make choices, and stay focused on the bigger picture— instead of getting caught up in the chaos around you. Our mission statement brings hope and passion into our thinking, feelings, and actions. If you want to fully commit to living in the energy of love, abundance, and peace—Start now! Write out your mission statement. Notice how writing it and stating it feels inside you. Don’t be surprised when all these little sparks are created, because you are about to light the world up in the best of ways.

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #7

I love making time to appreciate skills I’ve learned. This one puts me in a great mood. Sometimes when we get stuck in the daily grind, we forget to see how far we’ve come with the skills we’ve learned along the way. Appreciate the time you’ve committed to learning skills that have helped you and in turn, others. If you missed the first day explaining this daily aligning project, you can find it here.

There will be times when we experience blocks where our energy fights us to stay in fear, lack, and separation. Many times these are old beliefs that we either are so unconscious of or we know we have them and we are scared to let them go. These blocks may been have presented themselves after a trauma as a way of protecting ourselves. Unfortunately, many of us are taught to numb, ignore, and avoid our feelings. The feelings that created the beliefs or enforced the beliefs are being projected from us whether we are aware of them or not. There is even new science that is saying that trauma can be passed down in our DNA! Old recognized feelings and unhealthy beliefs will come off in how we interpret situations, in our body language, in our immune systems, and they will EXPLODE in our intimate and close relationships. Anything we try to keep down, will re-surface in one way, shape, or form. It is SO IMPORTANT to learn techniques to properly feel through feelings that are creating blocks to aligning with the energy of love, abundance, and peace. What you may discover is you are holding on to beliefs that were passed down from previous generations that no longer serve you. Feelings in themselves aren’t bad, they are necessary for us to see where we are, avoiding them, numbing them, and suppressing them does a disservice. We actually will hurt more people including ourselves when we don’t face what is going on inside of us.

Today’s exercise isn’t a one time thing, it’s important to check in with yourself on a regular basis. It is interesting how our alignment with fear, lack, and separation manifests, I actually just found a buried block of my own recently. I live a very abundant life in many areas, but I seemed to have a financial block. I knew it was there, I knew it was something inside of me creating it, but I had NO clue what it was. It took a few days of praying, meditations, and actually paying attention where the Universe guided my attention for me to hear the message. I was led to a friend of mine who had been doing an abundance course. She listened to me, and started talking about feeling the “weight of debt” and how if we put our energy there, we create more of it. Have you ever heard of Oprah’s Aha-moment? Well this was definitely one of mine.

If you are thinking, how do I know if I have a block? If you feel pulled into fear on a daily basis, there is a block. If you feel like your needs aren’t being met (lack), there is a block. If you feel trapped in chaos or you can’t separate yourself from other’s chaos by taking their chaos personally, there is a block.

We can get very comfortable in the energy of fear, lack, and separation. The first step is becoming aware of when your energy goes there. Pay attention to where you feel this in your body. Try to remember the first time you felt the feeling. You can do things like pray, meditate, talk to trusted friends, read, seek professional help, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) a.k.a. Tapping, etc. What I’m ALWAYS amazed by is when I put my energy into releasing a block, the tools will start showing up. I’m reading two books that I was led to that have great tools for me, and I was also guided to Tapping.com to work through the emotional blocks with EFT, which is AMAZING by the way. Just stay open to where your guidance leads you and COMMIT to the journey. When you set the intention to heal something inside of you without blaming someone else for the problem, YOU will be amazed how much faster you get re-aligned with love, abundance, and peace. My book (down below) helps guide women through some of the most common blocks. I also have the FREE 90-Day A Better Me Series right here on this blog for any gender. If either is what is meant to help you, you will have a feeling about it. The wonderful thing about this journey is when we become more aligned, the messages become clearer and clearer on what to do to help ourselves align even more (I hope you can sense my excitement here).

Living in gratitude is living in abundance over lack. When we take time to focus on gratitude daily, we start noticing more and more to be grateful for. Our energy is aligned with our blessings, and that is what it means to live in abundance. Today’s focus on gratitude is focused in the wonderful world of nature. When we start looking at nature for gratitude, we have an endless supply. If you missed the details of this daily challenge, you can find them here.

You heard me, THREE NEW things, just for you! I’m so excited to hear what people will come up with. Think outside of your own box. The more often you can do this, the more you will open your mind to possibilities. That is when miracles REALLY begin to reveal themselves.

Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace Challenge #1

Wow, 2020 has not turned out like many of us thought it would. That saying, “I plan, God laughs” tends to stick out in my head. I had gotten pretty good at not planning and just holding the energy that things will work out better than any plan in my head. I’m not going to tell you that I haven’t had to sit and think about that one right now, but there is something inside of me that still says, “This is all necessary to take us to a better place.”

I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about how I can serve others in these times. Since, I continue to do the daily work of living life from a loving place, I wanted to share more of that with the people who are ready to move out of the inner chaos. Today on the From A Loving Place Facebook page, I started offering daily challenges to keep our energy in love, abundance, and peace; as opposed to in fear, lack, and separation.

How we behave is a projection of our inner life. Whatever we are projecting out WILL BE reflected back to us. That is enough for me to want to keep my energy aligned with love, abundance, and peace. If we truly want positive changes in the world, we HAVE to be conscious of the energy we are projecting out daily. We cannot be responsible and accountable for anyone else’s poor choices, but we are 100% responsible and accountable for what we put out into the world.

  • If we want the world to be more loving to each other, we have to be the projection of that.
  • If we want to live in abundance, we have to project that through living in daily gratitude.
  • If we want peace, we have to live it inside to be able to project it out.

If you want to start practicing raising your energy so that you can be the projection of love, abundance, and peace, I’ll be here doing it with you. I can tell you from experience, this will help you find solutions you were blocked to see before. It will help you in your causes, intimate relationships, familial relationships, careers, and so much more. Most of all, it will help you not get taken into the darkness of other people’s poor and unhealthy choices. You will be able to spot more love, connection, happiness, and joy in the world. This journey is an inward journey. The only person you can ever change is yourself, but once you commit to lifting your energy you will be amazed in the shifts it creates around you. That’s when we are truly LIVING the change that we want to see.

So if this intrigues you, I highly suggest you start this practice for a minimum of 30 days. The shifts can truly be life altering. You are welcome to leave your replies to the challenges in the comments here, on Facebook, on Twitter, on LinkedIn (wherever you are reading this), or simply in your own personal notebook. I’m leaving my answers on the From A Loving Place Facebook page. Here are today’s challenge questions:

Now, everything I’m saying are MY perspectives of truth. You don’t have to believe anything that you choose not to. These beliefs help me stay responsible and accountable for my own energy without taking what others say personally. If someone offers me new information, I listen. Then I decide if that information will contribute to the internal world I want to be living. I’ve used the example of our internal gardens before. Each of us gets to choose what seeds we want to plant and nurture. We also get to choose when a particular life isn’t working in our garden and we can pull it up from the root, and plant something else. We each get to make those choices for ourselves.

We each have our part to play in this life. We each are called to fight different battles and contribute different things. Please, don’t judge others’ contributions. We are not all meant to be the same. We HAVE to be different and think differently so we can continually expand, grow, and learn.

Embrace YOUR journey!

With Love, Gratitude, and Peace,

Rachael Wolff
