Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #72

I’m grateful for meaningful conversations. I love when I get the chance to have a meaningful conversation with someone. I’ve really been cherishing my connections with people lately. I’ve had more meaningful conversations in the last few months than I can count. My experience of 2020 is many of the people who’s energy aligns with mine want to go much deeper. I’m even seeing this with my kids and at least my daughter’s friends too. It has been an amazing experience seeing how all these conversations unfold. I cherish each chance I get to have these conversations, because they truly align me with the energy of love, abundance, and peace in the most meaningful of ways.

Today, I commit to making time for meaningful conversations. When things are important, we make time for them. I’ve started setting up in person (family and/or social distancing), phone, and video calls with people on a regular basis. My energy soars when I can have meaningful conversations with people because it’s two people (or more) aligned with love, abundance, and peace and that energy together is so powerful. For me, especially right now, it is important to keep connecting. This helps me to keep my energy in the best place possible, even if I’m having a challenging day. All my conversations also keep me inspired to keep writing these daily posts too—double bonus!

I’m grateful for all my new friends. 2020 has brought a lot of twists and turns. We’ve seen tremendous losses, rage, fear, chaos, and sickness inside and out. In the midst of all the divides and separations, new communities starting coming together to support each other. Mine personally started in the writing community. As many of us had just had book releases or were releasing new books during the pandemic, we gathered to support one another. Then my amazing publisher, Mango Publishing put together a Heart Wisdom Panel to help people struggling through these challenging times, facilitated by the fabulous Sherry Richert Belul, who I’ve already written about. The panels brought together authors, editors, and fans to make a community of support. Then, there is the world of coaches hosting free events where the participants get to know each other. I’ve been developing some beautiful friendships there where we get to cheer each other on in our own group now. I’ve enjoyed getting to know people who are far away on video calling, and shared so many AWE-filled moments, laughs, chills, and support. I’m grateful for all these new friendships.

Today, I commit to appreciating the new friends who have come into my life during this pandemic. This post is dedicated to all the amazing people I’ve connected to since March 2020. I feel so tremendously blessed to have got the opportunity to be in each and every one of their lives. 2020 is a year like no other, and how we align our energy with love, abundance, and peace or fear, lack, and separation, makes a difference in how we experience these times. I’m grateful that I chose to connect to others with love. My world feels so much richer for it.

I’m grateful for when the ordinary becomes extraordinary. I love when I look at something and see it’s beauty like I’ve never noticed it before. I remember the day I saw these giant snail shells on the ground. The colors, shapes, dimensions, and sizes put me in a state of awe. When I see a spoonbill crane at one of our lakes, I stand there in awe, no matter how many times I’ve seen them there before. Every time I walk the street I walk almost every day, I see something special. It may be a bird, rock, tree, plant, flower, rabbit, etc. I feel pure joy the more aware I am of how I make the ordinary extraordinary in my day.

Today, I commit to seeing the extraordinary! People often ask me how I move through my stressful moments so fast, this is one of my favorite tools. I simply go for a walk and find the extraordinary. If we want to do something bigger, we can go to an aquarium and feel the awe of all the sea creatures and plant life. We can sit in a park and watch people interacting. Take a bike ride and feel the wind. If we are unable to leave our homes, instead of scrolling through all the news and social media, type in “extraordinary nature images” into your search engine and feel the pure awe of all the photos. We don’t have to keep going back to the things that stress us out in our heads. We can take EXTRAORDINARY breaks to re-align our energy with love, abundance, and peace. When we allow ourselves to feel the AWE, we set the reset button on the hamster wheel of thought running round and round in our minds. Take a deep breath in, and release the breath slowly. Create space to allow an opening for more good to come in.

I have some great news for all my wonderful readers!!!! I will be a part of the iCreate Inc. International Power of One Virtual Conference on Oct 23-24th!

I’m grateful for the breakdown to breakthrough. Every time I think about this concept, I consider the journey of the butterfly. We don’t just get from nothing to flying, there is a process and if we try to avoid the process, we will never be able to fly. Our struggles (the caterpillar) give us essential tools to grow and learn from. We may feel like we are breaking down as we go inward into that period of deep feeling (the chrysalis), but really we are transforming. Now, unlike the butterfly, we are much more complex. So, we can go through the transformation process over and over. We also can stay in our struggles and embrace the art of avoidance (addiction), suppression (inner rage, shame, and disease), and/or victim mentality (living in blame and giving our power away). We can also choose to stay in our chrysalises where we stay so much inside that we don’t apply our tools that we learn from our struggles to the outside world.

When I learned to see the breakdown as a doorway to breakthrough, my life was presented with opportunities to learn, grow, and transform. This concept actually took me from a suicidal teen to an abundant adult. It was a long journey, and I’ve had many lessons to learn along the way. I’m still learning and growing on a daily basis. I’ve moved through multiple transformation processes and my colors get brighter and brighter every time. The process also happens faster and faster. What used to take me down, I now embrace. I remember the girl I was who would go so far down that I thought the best solution would be to die. I was submerged in the energy of fear, lack, and separation. I thought people would be better off without me here (separation). I didn’t feel like I was worthy or lovable (lack). I lived in the constant feeling that I was being punished and life was happening to me, not for me (fear).

When I embraced the breakdown to breakthrough concept, I began to experience love on all kinds of new levels. I started to focus on gratitude, and what I could do (abundance). I figured out that I had been applying a definition of love (unconscious) to my life that wasn’t healthy. Once I started applying the new definition (conscious) inward, I was able to connect to myself, spirit, and others on a whole different level (peace). This process is a big part of why I doing the working in aligning daily with love, abundance, and peace.

Today, I commit to feeling through my challenges to find solutions on the other side. I showed an example of how I’m doing this in Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #68. I was watching how repetitive cycles were affecting me inside, then I made sure to make changes accordingly. It reminded me how important it is to FEEL through the challenges. If I would have went for the glass of wine to take the edge off, I wouldn’t have looked at the cycles I was engaging in like I did, because the wine would have calmed my nerves which is what was giving me the message to change something. I’m not against wine, I just know that if I drink it when I’m getting a signal, I don’t tend to change the behavior that took me to the feeling of NEEDING a glass of wine. If I feel like I NEED a glass of wine, that is actually my signal to go inward and look at how what is going on in the moment is affecting me. I quickly find out that I don’t need a glass of wine, but I need to change a pattern I’ve created to stir up that feeling.

When we see rage acting out in the world, that comes from a lot of suppressed feelings. Suppressed feelings from fear, lack, and separation will find away to project out to our relationships. Usually creating a lot of drama. When we face our feelings and our challenges by allowing ourselves to fully process what is going on inside of us, we free ourselves to find solutions to shift our energy back to a place of love, abundance, and peace. The other day, I drove by a man handcuffed, sitting on the ground, and surrounded by cops. Later, I found out that this man shot his wife multiple times. Suppressed feelings that turn into rage can bring out the darkest parts of us. When we go outward, we can easily fall into blame, which takes away our power to shift out of the energy of fear, lack, and separation. When we go inward, we can see areas where we aren’t serving the energy of love, abundance, and peace within us. We can embrace our feelings and challenges with that energy and create shifts in our behaviors, thoughts, patterns, feelings, and actions that will free us instead of imprison us.

Just for today, when feelings or challenges come up, go inward. Look at if your perceptions of the situation aligned you with fear, lack, and separation. Consider other possibilities of thought that would align you with the energy of love, abundance, and peace. Feel through whatever feelings are coming up. Pay attention to where you feel the feeling in your body. When have you had that feeling before? Embrace that feeling with energy of love, abundance, and peace through your breathing. Get creative and just look at possible solutions in thinking, feeling, and action that could serve you and others better. Just this simple act can help you move through any negative energy that is building up inside of you. Give yourself time, if a feeling triggers YEARS of suppressed feelings, a lot more work will go into helping you release them and come up with solutions. Be patient and kind with yourself. I still have triggers come up that I need to work through. They are learning opportunities. I like to think that they come up to help me go deeper and heal and thrive even more. This perspective helps me see that even if I feel like I’m breaking down in the moment, I’m on my way to the breakthrough. That perspective keeps me feeling empowered, no matter how dark it gets.

Repetition reinforces the circuits in your brain and forms more neural connections so that in your weakest hour, you don’t talk yourself out of greatness.

Dr. Joe Dispenza, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself

I’m so grateful I understand the power of repetition—the good, the bad, and the ugly. My life has blessed me in so many ways. Some of my ugliest experiences helped to guide me on paths to knowledge and understanding of how the human mind works. I’ve learned how repetition keeps us prisoner, and how it sets us free. I love learning. So much of the wisdom I’ve passed on is through thirty plus years of reading and studying this particular area. With tons of new brain research, it’s taken concepts I’ve learned over the years and explained the why behind them. Dr. Joe Dispenza explains why he uses repetition in his book Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself, “Repetition reinforces the circuits in your brain and forms more neural connections so the in you weakest hour, you don’t talk yourself out of greatness.” That’s used like I use it in my “Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace” series. You will hear me repeat things over and over to help myself and readers to slow down and make sure we are aligning with the energy we actually WANT to be aligning with.

Then there is the bad, I opened my eyes to this in a media and society class, where I learned the concept of, “cradle to the grave marketing” amongst other tactics. This is how we are fed repeated messages of we aren’t enough without some material good or service. We aren’t enough unless we invest our money here… Your life would be so much better if… This is why Winnie the Pooh and McDonalds have the same colors. There are no accidents in marketing. Marketing uses psychology to get us to buy products and services. When we showed the media that we loved gossip over news (based on what sold in the market), we transformed news into gossip and facts became less important. People are more likely to believe gossip, because we’ve been trained to live in the energy of fear, lack, and separation. The constant repetition keeps us in the energy fear, lack, and separation if we BLINDLY keep following the cycle. Now, this is bad and we are seeing this explode in 2020. This can become a good thing when we open our eyes to break the cycle by not contributing. When we create new cycles coming from the place of love, abundance, and peace, the repetition opens so many amazing doors.

Now for the ugly. I’m grateful I understand the psychology of the ugly, because I see what happens when people don’t (including my 10 years of abuse). I don’t blame the people who fall victim to the ugly. I don’t even blame the sick individuals who are brought to teach us about the ugly.This doesn’t mean I don’t hold them responsible, but the only person we are responsible and accountable for is ourselves. So if I’ve fallen into a cycle of contributing to their behavior, I need to be responsible and accountable for my choices so that I can change them. When I blame, I take away my power to change the things that keep ME prisoner. This is why it is SO important to be conscious of the powers of repetition. There are humans with mental illnesses such as narcissistic personality disorder (narcissist) and antisocial personality disorder (sociopath), amongst others who aren’t capable of thinking in a way that a healthy mind thinks.

I spent years studying these two disorders, and there are patterns of behavior they use repeatedly to lure in victims and actually get people to turn on the victims of their abuse, only to abuse them more.It is scary just how repetitive and similar the messages are from individual to individual. I’ve read books that quoted the same toxic repetitive messages that were spoon-fed to me. They need people to attach to the cycle of fear, lack, and separation to align with them. Blaming others is one of their favorite tools to get people aligned with them (I write about this in other blogs). With both disorders, they are not able to to be accountable and take personal responsibility. Someone else always made them…

How this one gets ugly is when people are attached to fear, lack, and separation they can become unconsciously apart of the cycle of abuse. This isn’t about where someone else is putting their energy, it’s about where we are CHOOSING to put ours. If we fall into doing the same behaviors we see in the person we don’t like or respect, we are still contributing to the energy that strengthens what a mentally unhealthy individual is trying to do. This happens in individual abusive relationships (romantic, familial, working, acquaintance) and on societal levels. Being AWARE of repetitions that feed the cycles of fear, lack, and separation are essential if we want to break out of that energy, otherwise we become apart of it. If I slip, I can quickly move into gratitude for the awareness of slipping.

Social Media: A Narcissist’s Playground, 5 Ways Narcissist’s Use Social Media, A Warning to Social Media Users, How Researching Narcissist Personality Disorder…, Feel-Good Friday Book Series: Power (You can search the categories of narcissists or abuse to find more)

Today, I commit to looking at the repetitive messages I’m allowing to let influence my energy. If you hear yourself blaming right now, slow down. Blame keeps you in the energy of fear, lack, and separation. If we want to break the cycle of that energy, we have to start with what we are doing and what we are allowing to shift us from the energy of love, abundance, and peace. This is an inside job! The reason I’m writing on this topic right now is because it is something that I am actively working on. The other night when I was watching the news, I got sick to my stomach. The fear, lack, and separation was getting to me. I realized I was contributing to the very energy that I’m trying to make better. This is a BIG PROBLEM. This means I have to change the repetitive messages that I’m allowing to LET influence my energy, because I know I don’t want to make that energy any stronger than it is right now.

We each have to figure out what we want our repetitive messages to look like. Sometimes it takes testing out practices to see what works and what doesn’t. Sometimes we will need to change things up as we change and grow. What I do may not feel or be right for you and vice versa. The beautiful thing is that there are SO many options and resources. As long as you make the commitment to yourself to align with the energy of love, abundance, and peace, the doors to staying in that energy start opening up. If you have read any of my past posts, you will see how that has been working in my life. Here are some of the things I’m doing to stay in the energy that sets ME free at the time of this writing (it will change):

  • Obviously one of the repetitive things I’m doing is writing this series. Even when I slip, it helps get me back on track quickly!
  • Every night before bed, I write a gratitude list for that day. This helps me to make sure I’m in the energy of love, abundance, and peace before I go to sleep.
  • I set up a Spotify playlists to play meditations meant to align me with the energy I want to be in. I can play these throughout the day and when I sleep every night. The repetitive messages are about abundance, love, and peace.
  • I exercise on my Simply Fit Board, walk, and stretch (Classical Stretch on PBS and available on YouTube). This helps me to literally move any stuck energy in my body. BELIEVE me, this is REALLY important!
  • I eat lots of healthy foods. If my body feels good and I feel good about what I’m putting into my body, it’s much easier to align.
  • I read books that I feel help me to stay aligned. I read a lot of psychology, because the knowledge and research helps me to reframe negative thoughts about myself or others. I love neuroscience, quantum physics, religion, self-help, memoirs, and spiritual and personal growth. Pretty much anything that helps me understand myself and others better, I read. I have at least two to three books going at a time. The beautiful thing about this journey is more and more keep showing up in front of me and it truly has been AMAZING!
  • I pray for family, loved ones, and strangers who are lost in the cycle of fear, lack, and separation.
  • To stay out of the negative political energy in the US, I did lots and lots research, then I voted. Now, I need to let it go, because these campaigns feed the energy of fear, lack, and separation, and I just go on the facts, so it doesn’t serve me or my energy to continue to hear any mudslinging on either side from the candidates or the followers. That is contributing to the energy of separation, which only strengthens it’s power. The more I watch, the more I found myself slipping into that energy, so I knew for myself I had to change the repetitive cycle. I’ve done my part by voting, and I stayed aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace, so I feel good about my contribution.

I hope this helps any readers who are struggling with staying aligned. It really is important to stay aware of what messages we are allowing to feed our energy. If we feel the need to drop down to someone else’s negative level, it tends to be we’ve been repetitively feeding the energy of fear, lack, and separation. When we are repetitively feeding the energy of love, abundance, and peace, it feeds into actions that reflect compassion, empathy, and kindness. For me, all my psychology research helps me to stay in a place of compassion and empathy, because I know how it works. If you are struggling with this you can look to the science, or if you are spiritual you can look to the stories of humans like Jesus and how he behaved even in the face of extreme hate. You could also look to our history and find leaders who used love, kindness, and compassion to make great changes. Feed the energy you want to see more of, and make it repetitive.

Today, I’m grateful for the sea. When I begin to feel overwhelmed with the fear, lack, and separation in the world, I know I can focus on the sea to bring me back to peace. I think about all the amazing creatures, plants, and coral. I think about the waves and vastness. I don’t even have to be there, I can look up pictures, videos, or just pull a memory up in my head. There is something so soothing when my mind goes to the sea, and I can hear the waves hit the shore. I feel one with the water running through me. I feel peace. I do not feel alone. The sea offers windows. When I can float in the water, I feel connected to the history of the planet. Things can feel divided in the man-made world, but when I connect to the sea, I feel the awe of gratitude as the water running through me aligns with the love, abundance, and peace of the sea. I feel one with the Divine. I’m so grateful for the sea.

Today, I commit to connecting with the sea. As my fingers touch the keys, I feel the power of the sea running through them. To me, that is what real connection is all about. Just think of that friend who is nowhere close to you, but somehow when they need you, your there. Too often we forget that we are energy. We get little reminders of how connected our energy is to someone else. We can align with love, abundance, and peace or feel overwhelmed with fear, lack, and separation. When we think of a person, and our stomach tights and we get queasy, our energy is connected through fear, lack, and separation. When we think of a person, and our chest feels expansive maybe even goosebumps, we are connecting through love, abundance, and peace. Now, what we need to remember is how to get back to our own peace, and connecting to the sea can help us do just that.

I used to feel like I needed to be able to float in water, whether it be a pool, bathtub, lake, or ocean to connect to my energy. What I realized is, yes, those things made it easier in the beginning, but now I can get myself there without any of it. Just knowing the sea is there allows me to connect with it. You may have even felt it as your reading the words. If you struggle, you can pull up ocean videos, sounds, or pictures on your phone or computer. Just simply lie down and breathe as you imagine yourself floating in the sea. You are just energy—one with the water. Feel the sense of calm and just appreciate your connection to all things. This is another re-centering tool for these turbulent times. Take care of your energy. You might slip into the fear, lack, and separation, I definitely have! The key is knowing your way back to love, abundance, and peace.

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #66

I’m grateful that there are always helpers. Number 65 was dedicated to one of my helpers. It was Sherry who asked me to be the facilitator of the Heart Wisdom Panel on October 7, 2020. The panel has a couple authors sharing wisdom and tools on how to thrive during these challenging times. Talk about helpers! I’ve been the guest a couple times, and I did an emergency fill-in another. She asked me because it’s finally her turn to be a special guest on the panel. As the facilitator, I’m given the books of the authors to glance through (I read them both—Front to back). I already knew Sherry was one of my helpers, but it really made it stand out for me. Now, I found a new helper.

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, my focus is on the other book, Find the Helpers: What 9/11 and Parkland Taught Me about Recovery, Purpose, and Hope by Fred Guttenberg. On day #47, I quoted Fred Rogers famous quote. I had no idea I would be reading this book at this point. Once again, the power of aligning with Love, abundance, and peace creating the door. I talk about helpers, and now I’m presented with more. Reading Fred Guttenberg’s story was such an amazing tribute to all the helpers who showed up for him to help guide him on his mission to create social change after his 14-year old daughter Jaime was murdered in Parkland, FL during a mass shooting. Some may see this as a political book because of his advocacy and political helpers, but if you pick it up, I ask you to put your beliefs aside and LOOK DEEPER. This book is truly about the power of love and how it can ignite a person’s drive to do some amazing things and attract some POWERFUL helpers along the way. I got to see the humanity of each individual that he defined as one of his helpers. The book made me truly grateful for the helpers. Warning, it also made me cry my eyes out to the point my whole face was swollen, but I cherish those tears, because they are tapping into my humanity. I’m always grateful for that.

I find when we are aligned with our purpose, the helpers we need to show up. They might be there when we aren’t aligned, but we might not see them. That’s the tricky part. We have to be open to accept what our helpers are offering. If we are trapped in the energy of fear, lack, and separation, we won’t be open to see our helpers. If a helper is someone you’ve separated yourself from because of politics, religion, gender, country, race, etc…. you are acting against yourself. Be open, you may be very surprised where the helpers come from.

As I become more aligned with every passing day, more helpers show up and I get to help more too. Fred Guttenberg’s book is an amazing tribute to all the helpers who have shown up for him, and in-turn made it possible for him to be the helper to so many. If you are showing up for your life, staying aligned with your purpose, and staying open, you have a long list helpers to be grateful for too. If you are having trouble being aligned, start with being grateful for our everyday helpers. The more you focus your energy on seeing the helpers, the more you will see. Here’s a sample of what I’m talking about:

  • I’m grateful for my family
  • I’m grateful for the first responders
  • I’m grateful for the medical community
  • I’m grateful for the people who serve me
  • I’m grateful for authors
  • I’m grateful for kind and compassionate people
  • I’m grateful for love-minded influencers

Today, I commit to being a helper and appreciating the helpers who cross my path. Here is the loving action we take when we align ourselves with love, abundance, and peace. When we are not prisoners of our fear, lack, and separation we see opportunities to be better helpers and appreciate those who are helping. Just for today, try to put aside the beliefs that separate you from your fellow humans. Just for today, imagine you can do something to create more abundance in kindness, compassion, love, faith, wealth, empathy, connection, and quality time. Just for today, love yourself enough to shine that love onto the world and be a helper.

When we lump people into categories, we don’t see the human behind the fear, lack, and separation that we created. How are we helping when we do that? Fred Guttenberg’s story showed me there are all kinds of unexpected helpers, we have to look beyond the labels and see the humans. When two people recognize each other’s humanity, our differences don’t divide us. We see compromises, solutions, and simply areas where we can agree to disagree. We each bring our own perspectives of truth to the table, we can’t force anyone to change what they believe, but we can question if our perspectives are aligning us with the energy we want to live in. When we do that, we become some of the greatest helpers, because we lead with the heart.

Today’s piece is dedicated to Fred Guttenberg, the loving memory of Jaime Guttenberg, and all the people we’ve lost to acts of hate.

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #65

I’m grateful that there are so many ways to show people they are loved. In preparation for a Zoom panel I’m facilitating, I read Say it Now: 33 Creative Ways to Say I Love You to the Most Important People in Your Life by Sherry Richert Belul. Now, I am blessed to know Sherry, so hearing her voice in my head throughout the book was a special treat. I read the book in a few hours and I’m leaving with so many different and amazing ideas! While I was reading the book, I could think of who I wanted to try different ideas with. Still reading, I start thinking of the book, The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman, and wouldn’t you know it, it’s mentioned in the book. There is something so special when we know how someone best receives love when we are thinking of ways to show them.

Here’s what I love about the magical journey of aligning with love, abundance, and peace: On day #61 I posted about expressing love, then I received a book to read to prepare me for the panel and it’s on different ways to express love. I don’t believe in accidents. I put my energy in the right place and more was presented to me. This happens all the time! It’s funny, because I was trying to think of new and different ways to show the people in my life that I love and appreciate them. I asked and the answers appeared. I’m so incredibly grateful that there are some many different ways to say I love you, and I will start implementing some of these beautiful ideas just in time for the holiday season.

Today, I commit to finding a new creative way to show someone I love them. After reading Say it Now, I feel inspired to start using some of these creative ways to show people I love them. I feel good just thinking about it. This is one of the greatest ways to align with love, abundance, and peace. When we do this, we are taking action to be in the energy of authentic love and joy.

I wanted to start today’s commitment by dedicating today’s piece to the beautiful and loving spirit, Sherry Richert Belul. I’ve been interviewed by her multiple times, which you can see on my home page. She just shines! Just thinking about her makes me smile. Sherry, here is 10 of the many reasons I love You:

  1. I love the way you listen to who is speaking giving them your full attention.
  2. I love the joy you express when someone says something you love.
  3. I love how you are able to show people how deeply you listen by repeating something they said.
  4. I love how you represent the best in humanity.
  5. I love that you share your wisdom with others.
  6. I love your style.
  7. I love the audio messages you send me (they put an instant smile on my face EVERY time).
  8. I love your laugh.
  9. I love how you bring the best out of anyone you are interviewing.

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #64

I’m grateful for cherished moments. Having beautiful moments to look back to is a gift, but doing it in the wrong energy can turn the gift into a prison. If our energy is aligned with love, abundance, and peace. The energy of the moment can ignite us to feel authentic joy. If our energy is aligned with fear, lack, and separation, we can use it as a tool to keep us down by wishing we were somewhere we aren’t (lack). We can also engage our fears of never getting to experience a moment like that again. We can also use the money to separate ourselves from the very people, places, and things that once brought us joy. Life is an ever moving journey. When we can look back and enjoy the memory with love, we align with an energy that will create more moments of love to occur. They may be totally different, but the energy becomes magnified the more we live in that energy. Cherished moments are not just dream vacations. They are walking down the street and seeing a beautiful bloom, sharing a laugh with a friend, snuggling on the couch, doing pull-ups with your kids, being present for a teachable moment, the list goes on. We are in the energy of abundance when we look to these cherished moments with a smile across our faces and our body feels relaxed. If you feel tight or constricted, there is some thought, feeling, or belief attaching to fear, lack, and/or separation. Breathe in and enjoy the walk down the hall of cherished moments. Don’t forget to write them down because it amplifies the energy of abundance.

Today, I commit to tapping into the energy of my cherished moments. I love this exercise. It really puts my mood and energy right. If you want to get the full experience of today’s challenge, grab pen and paper. Take a moment to take three deep cleansing breaths. Close your eyes and tap into a time and place where you felt authentic joy. Be with the energy of that moment. Write down the things you loved about this cherished moment. REALLY get into it. Try to write down feelings and thoughts while trying to describe the energy to the best of your ability. Notice what your mouth is doing. Notice how your throat, stomach, head, arms, legs, feet, and finger are doing. Do you have goosebumps? Do you feel a tingling sensation anywhere? Go into the physical reaction you are having and try to remember another time you felt this energy. Again, document what comes up while being full engaged in the feelings and sensations. When we can ignite our senses, the memories become more vivid and align our energy even more.

When you are ready to move on from this experience end it with a gratitude list. Don’t forget to write down being grateful for the cherished memories. This tells your brain to pull up more of these memories. I find this to be a great tool when I feel my energy slipping into the dark zone. Just writing about this puts me in a better mood instantly. Just remember, your focus is to tap into the energy of love, abundance, and peace. If you feel yourself starting to enter into the energy of fear, lack, and separation, do the work to re-align your thoughts. Accept what comes through, and be grateful to be shown the work you have to do. Doing this helps open doors to learning healthier ways of experiencing the memories. The more open we are to whatever comes our way, the more connected we feel with the journey of life. We learn to start seeing learning opportunities as cherished moments, and when we do that…we learn to live free.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #63

I’m grateful for my sense of smell. Anytime I need to feel more grounded, I can use this sense to help me find space to breathe. I can find smells to enjoy anywhere I go. I’m so grateful for this amazing sense. The simple acts of washing my hands, preparing food, doing laundry, going outside, taking a shower, and smelling a flower can bring me to a place of peace in an instant. I just have to be willing to be present enough to appreciate it.

Today, I commit to appreciating my sense of smell. When I think about what I’ve done so far today, I can tell you if I was in autopilot or present by the smells. I can tell if I’m moving too fast, because I don’t focus on each thing I’m doing. If my head is somewhere else, I won’t remember what I smelled. Being present is where love, abundance, and peace live. The more ways we have to tap into the present moment, the better chance we have at truly aligning our energy. Today, my focus is on being present through my sense of smell. Who’s with me? Let’s commit to enjoying this great feature we were born with. We were given this sense for a reason, let’s enjoy it!

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,
