Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #244

I’m grateful for Divine connections. I love when I meet someone and in one meeting it’s feels like our souls have known each other for eternity. I can even have a virtual exchange with someone via video or simply a comment exchange and know there is a Divine connection. This is the absolute beauty of energy. It knows no space and time. If a person is meant to be in my life, it doesn’t matter how far away they physically are from me, we will connect. There is such peace in that knowing.

Divine connections have played such a HUGE role in my life. Some people have come in for a single conversation and others have stayed in my life for decades. My oldest friend and I met when we were four years old. We have both moved around throughout the years. We went one long stretch without talking in early adulthood, then were brought back together again. I just talked to her the other day. My partner and I met in 5th grade. We never dated earlier on, but BOY did I have a crush in 5th grade. We reconnected via Facebook, but it would be at least another year before we would have an exchange that set everything into motion. We’re now going on seven years. We wouldn’t have been ready for each other a second sooner than the time we got together, which goes back to the topic I talked about a couple days ago—Divine timing. I have so many stories of childhood friends who have come in and out of my life, along with people brought in to teach me some very important lessons about myself. Since the pandemic the Universe opened wide up with virtual Divine connections.

Even the Divine connections that are brought in to teach me some challenging lessons about myself are beautiful blessings. Each person has helped me to strip away all the things that block me from being the person I was born to be. I wouldn’t have the perspectives in life that I do now if all these Divine connections didn’t happen in Divine timing. I believe every thought we have is a prayer to the Universe. Many of those prayers are answered through these Divine connections in Divine timing. If I really want to know the answer, I have to be open enough to hear it. I remember some of the prayers I would say when I was in a verbal, mental, and emotional abusive relationship, but for a long time I wasn’t open enough to see and hear the answers. I was too focused on what I couldn’t change that I wasn’t able to see what I could change. Saying the Serenity Prayer truly helped me be willing to see the Divine connections and how they were working in my life.

Today, I commit to celebrating my Divine connections. Each energy exchange I have with another person is a true blessing. If the energy connection is aligned with fear, lack, and separation, the person shows me how I’m connecting to that energy. If I’m reacting from a place of fear, lack, and separation, that is not the other person’s fault. I have to go within and ask:

  • Why I’m choosing to connect there?
  • What inside of me feels fearful about this exchange?
  • Is a feeling of lack being triggered by this exchange?
  • Why am I feeling separate from this human in front of me?
  • What makes me feel different, better, or less than the person I’m having the exchange with?
  • How is this exchange benefitting anyone in this energy?
  • How do I move my energy back to love, abundance, and peace?
  • What prayer can I say for the person I’m having the exchange with that will help me align my energy with love, abundance, and peace?

One thing I’ve learned to do is thank God for showing me _______________ through the Divine connection I’ve had with a person. A long time ago, I learned to see people as my mirrors. It’s not about what they do or how they act, it’s about how I respond and/or react. I am not responsible and accountable for them, but I am for me. Divine connections don’t just show me what I need to work on, they show me the things I absolutely LOVE about how I choose the view the world and people in it. I have so many amazing loving exchanges that exude love, abundance, and peace. Did you miss the Wisdom panel I just did? All those relationships in the panel were born out of Divine connections. I knew whoever was meant to be there would, just like I know whoever is meant to see it would or will. We have to be drawn into the energy to connect with it. I knew every person that was there that day and I have connections with each of them. The room was filled with such love that I felt it throughout the whole panel, I tapped into the best parts about my humanity from being in that room, at that time, with those women, from the participants to the observers.

The wonderful thing is that since that meeting, multiple new connections have been made to help serve each other. That the amazing thing about seeing the world through this lens, I get to see connection after connection after connection. My heart is so full just at the thought, if you’ve been connecting with me through these posts, you probably know my eyes are full of tears right now. I’m truly overflowing. There are a handful of people who I know read these posts regularly. They comment here, on my Facebook page, or send me personal exchanges via text or email, each of those connections is a Divine connection that I appreciate wholeheartedly. I smile ear to ear anytime I see one of your names pop-up on my screen.

When I became open to see Divine connections, I started seeing them EVERYWHERE! It has helped me understand that others have to take their journeys through this too, whether they see it the way I do or not. If I believe that Divine connections work in my life the way they do, I have to trust they are working in other people’s lives the same way. Believing in Divine Connections aligns me with the energy of love, abundance, and peace which is why I’ve chosen to believe in this perspective of truth. I’m a better friend to others because of this belief too. It has helped me not insist that I know what is best for someone else’s life. I know a person has the Divine connections they are meant to have. If a friend asks, I will share my experience and ask them a lot of questions. These questions are to help them figure out their path. I don’t get attached to if someone does what I suggest or not, because that is not my journey. I know I had to go through excruciatingly tough things to get to where I am now. Me insisting that I know what is best for someone else’s life is my ego, which comes from the energy of fear, lack, and separation. This doesn’t mean I don’t catch myself in this energy if I’m worried about the people that I love, but it doesn’t change the fact that my energy is in fear, lack, and separation. I can’t justify my energy, it is in fear, lack, and separation or love, abundance, and peace. It won’t change until I change my perspectives of thought. Divine connections definitely help to keep me accountable for where my energy is. My kids have so much to offer me with that one. I will talk more about that tomorrow.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #225

I’m grateful I can connect situations in a loving way. We are capable of connecting situations through energy of fear or love. Two people can look at the same situation and see it through a completely different lens. Fear will tap into all the things we haven’t healed from the past and the fears we bought into about the future. When we react to situations from a fear-filled place, we often make someone else our enemy and stir up the blaming and shaming. When I learned that how I connect situations in my head was a choice, it opened me up to be creative in how I WANTED to interpret the situations around me. I found that when I connected situations from a loving place, I was more at peace in my heart. Anytime I bought into the chaos people in fear would spin, I would be miserable.

Connecting things from love or fear doesn’t change the facts of what is happening, just how they will affect our lives in the moment. I know I come up with a lot more solutions when I find connections to situations in a loving way than from a place of fear. Fear just makes me want to go to war and blame people, places, and things. When I connect situations in a loving way, I find the learning opportunities and determine what I can do in this moment to make a situation better. Even if a this moment the situation just gets better between my ears, which means the stories I’m telling myself, that is something I can work with. I know that with my energy aligned with love, abundance, and peace, I will live the best life I can and leave it better for the people around me.

Today, I commit to see the connections in situations FROM A LOVING PLACE. Just like most things you will read in my posts, this is a practice. When I started, I would catch myself making connections out of fear. Then, I would look at the situation and ask myself what I thought it would look like through a loving lens. As I got better at the practice, I would catch myself midway through a fearful thought spinning session and take a deep breath. This showed me I was making progress. It took a long time before my first response was to see the connections in situations from a loving place, and it still doesn’t happen ALL the time.

Sometimes I have to still work my butt off to get myself back to a loving place from a place of fear, but anytime I can make connections, it helps!! One of the ways I do this is to laugh at myself. I think about things I spent time worrying about that came out just the way they were supposed to, not because I spent all that time worrying, but because I just kept living one moment at a time, which is the only way any of us can live. When we focus on doing the best with the moment we have—RIGHT NOW, and stay aligned with love, abundance, and peace, beautiful things can happen. When I can get there, I feel at peace. How do I want to live this moment? My answer, from a loving place. If I want to live from a loving place, I have to process situations through that lens. This doesn’t mean that I’m naive to facts, on the contrary. I just do my best to take out the way I think things SHOULD look, because I know that will skew my view. I take the time to see the humans involved in the situation and put myself in their shoes when I’m trying to figure things out. If I can’t see their humanity, I will only see the situation from a place of fear.

Here are some of the questions I will be considering today:

  • What can I learn?
  • How can I serve?
  • How will I grow?
  • Who is the person involved?
  • Are the people involved aligned with love, abundance, and peace or fear, lack, and separation in the situation being discussed?
  • How do I stay aligned with love while interpreting this situation?
  • How do I stay aligned as I respond to others?
  • How am I connecting this situation in my head (through the lens of fear of love)?
  • How am I connecting this situation in my actions?
  • Is how I’m connecting the situation serving me being the best version of myself?

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #209

I’m grateful for the joy I feel after connecting with others. I don’t mean just spending time with others. I mean REALLY CONNECTING with others. I can be around people and not connect, or I can make the effort to connect to someone else in a way that fully aligns me with the energy of love, abundance, and peace. These connections can be with anyone starting with eye contact and a smile or a long deep intimate conversation with someone I love. They can be through a returned comment, email, text, or note. I connect to a person when I commit to fully sharing a moment with the person. In that moment they get my full attention. Those moments can keep going or quickly end, but the joy lasts for awhile. Sometimes the joy of the connection can go on for days. I have that when I speak to specific people, so I make sure that I keep a reoccurring place in my life for them. I love the feeling of joy, so I try to schedule things in my life that I KNOW will bring joy. So many incredible blessings have come into my life because of my connections with others.

Today, I commit to feeling the joy from connecting with others. I’m going to consciously focus on my connections with others during my exchanges today. It’s date night for me tonight, so it is the perfect time to align myself with the energy of love, abundance, and peace while connecting with my partner. When we are with people for years, like family and loved ones, sometimes we can get into routines and actually get disconnected. It’s important to fuel our relationships with the attention they deserve, so consciously picking times to really focus on each other is important fuel for relationships.

In addition to connecting with the people I love, I’m committed to connecting with people I encounter. I will smile and say hello to my neighbors. I will connect with people who serve me by doing their jobs. I will connect with my readers and followers through my words and time. The more I connect with people, the more I see the human behind the labels. The more I see beyond the labels, the more I’m aligned with love, abundance, and peace. The more I’m aligned with love, abundance, and peace, the more JOY I feel. Connection becomes a superpower.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

I’m grateful for connected moments. The moments I love can be with a person, place, thing, or experience. I just love when I’m fully connected in the energy of love, abundance, and peace. Those are the moments that lift me by just the thought. Swinging on porch swings; laughing with friends; looking into my partner’s eyes; dancing in the car with my daughter; deep conversations while my son drives us around; 80’s dance party with my best friend during a pandemic; AHA moments while listing to someone speak. There are so many moments in time, that I’m grateful for. The thing is that I wouldn’t have recognized any of them if I wasn’t there in the present moment. In order to connect to a moment, we have to be where our feet are. Connected moments only occur when we are fully in them.

With all the upheaval that 2020 has brought, we can easily choose shift our energy to fear, lack, and separation which strips us from the present moment. We may lose time by having our heads everywhere but where we are. What is going to happen in the next hour, day, and week is going to happen based on how we connect to each moment we have, because how a moment effects us is based on how we interpret it. When we allow ourselves to connect to a moment in the energy of love, abundance, and peace, we make the next moment easier to get through, no matter what the moment brings. Being in the energy of love, abundance, and peace connects us to solutions we would have NEVER thought of being lost in the energy of fear, lack, and separation.

This is why I love everything about connected moments. Whether it be with a person who I get to help or that helps me; a moment in nature that makes me think of a solution; or an experience that opens me up to new possibilities. I never know when one of these moments is going to come, so the best I can do is stay in the energy of love, abundance, and peace as much as I can so that I will appreciate it when the moment arrives.

Today, I commit to connect to the moments I’m given. I’ve been having a lot of these connected moments lately. I wanted to put my focus here today, because I have a lot to get done and it’s very easy for me to get ahead of myself and to connect to the moments I’m given. The more I can be here this week, the more I will enjoy the journey of all the doing. If I’m connected, I remember WHY all the doing is important. I’m excited for today!

God, please help me to be open and present in the moments I’m blessed with today. If there is a message I’m supposed to get, let me hear it. If there is love I’m supposed to feel, let me feel it. If there is a lesson I’m supposed to learn, let me learn it. If there is beauty I’m meant to see, let me see it. If there is a fragrance I’m meant to smell, let me smell it. If there is food you want me to taste, let me take the time to appreciate it. If there is a person who could use my support, let me be open to hear, see, and be with them fully present. Thank you, God for making it so.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #141

I’m grateful for instant connections. I love these beautiful relationships! Most of my closest friends came from instant connections. There is something that happens energetically that can’t be explained and as time goes on, we KNOW this person was meant to be in our lives in a very impactful way.

The friendship below started with two 4-year olds hiding on the opposite sides of a rock. The other image comes from an encounter at the end of my driveway over 13 years ago. I’ve had similar experiences happen with friends from school, from my kids’ school, writing my book, and most recently the pandemic. These relationships are instantly rewarding. I light up from a conversation, and it doesn’t matter how I was feeling at the beginning of it. Some of these people I’ve never met in person, we speak on video calls, which I’ve found is just as rewarding (I never thought I would say that). I feel so honored and blessed to have these special relationships in my life.

Today, I commit to enjoying the people I feel connected to from a loving place. We have the ability to connect instantly with people from the energy of love, abundance, and peace OR fear, lack, and separation. If we are connected to someone from a place of fear, lack, and separation, the drama follows. YES, whoever you are thinking about right now, is one of them. This isn’t an attack on that person, it’s simply an energy thing. We have to be putting out the energy in order to attract it back to us. There is NO judgment here, just be aware of when you feel drawn to reach out to the person. Are you looking for a person to bitch with, commiserating with, or gossip with? If so, we are in the energy of fear, lack, and separation when we are pulled to talk to this person. If a relationship comes from a loving place, we are solution oriented. We are willing to look at ourselves of the cause and the solution for the ways we are thinking. We focus on what we can change, and when we vent, it’s quick. The whole conversation doesn’t revolve around it.

I know if someone is drawn to talk to me, they are looking for solutions. They may explain the story going on in their heads, but they have no expectation that I will go down with them. That’s the difference, we are all going to go through hard times, but when we are in a friendship connected from the energy of love, abundance, and peace, we help move each other out of those dark spots. We don’t want or expect a person to come down to our level of pain. We don’t take it out of them when our feelings don’t match, because our underlying energies are still aligned.

The beauty of the people I’ve felt instant connections with is that there is a level of honesty and vulnerability that makes it possible to grow exponentially! This is one of the many reasons I enjoy these relationships SO MUCH! I believe all relationships are God sent, because even the ones entrenched with the energy of fear, lack, and separation, I learned from. The ones that come from love, and I mean the truest form of love (which I’ve talked about many times on this blog), are the ones that make my soul sing. These are the relationships I’ve leaned on throughout the years. These are the relationships that last beyond time and distance. When a person I’m connected to reappears in my life after being dormant for some time, I know they are there for a reason. Usually, it’s because one of us is about to go through a growth spurt (which can be very painful) and the other person will help us through it.

If we want to align with love, abundance, and peace, we want to make sure our relationships are aligning from there. If we fuel relationships that are born from the energy of fear, lack, and separation, we only make that energy stronger within us. I know I need to be conscious of the energy I’m putting into relationships in order to ensure that I’m staying aligned.

I’ve fought my feelings of discomfort plenty of times with people. Those are the ones I try to connect to, but I just don’t. I’m learning more and more to trust that and let them go sooner rather than later, because it never ends pretty when I’m trying to deny my intuition. I like to think of magnets, if I’m meant to align with someone, our magnetic forces pull us together. If I’m not, they push us apart. No judgment, it’s about trusting our own energy and what it’s bringing to our lives. So people can seem like a perfect fit on the outside, but on the inside they are NOT at all.

I will continue to enjoy all my connections that come from a loving place.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Day 56: The Safety of My Self-Love

Dear Universe,

I feel so incredibly safe since I started truly loving myself. I know I’m on this journey doing the best I can. I have to commit to growing and expanding the love within me. I can only do that by uncovering the things that are blocking me from experiencing the full capacity of my love. I can’t put my faith in human interpretations of words. I have to go deeper. I have to find my connections in the loving energy that the words can’t express, but that actions can show. It’s more important for me to grow and expand than shrink and contain.

I’m a big fan of people who live with love as their guiding force; some are Christians, some are Jews, some are Muslims, some are Hindus, some are Buddhists, some are atheists, some are Democrats, some are Republicans, some are Americans, Some have dark skin, some have light skin, some are homosexual, some are heterosexual, some are women, some are men, and I can go on and on. Loving energy cannot be contained into any one path or any one title. When I found the love within myself beyond what I’ve been taught to fear—I found peace, connection, love, hope, and joy.

I will choose paths spiritually, physically, emotionally, mentally, and financially that help me to understand love and how to live my life from a loving place from the inside out. I choose people to guide me on my personal path who teach me how to expand my love, help me accept all of my light and darkness within me, so that I can serve humanity shining my brightest light possible. Any belief (perspective of truth) I choose that keeps me from experiencing love is a belief to be questioned and transformed. I’m embracing the all-encompassing energy of love, which means I need to know how to love and honor myself so that the love is always safe and secure.

The safety of my self-love protects me and keeps my boundaries healthy. I love the journey I’m on. I love getting to learn about the fears I still have and the ones I’ve grown out of. I love that no matter how others treat me; I will love me more and do what is best for my journey. I love me, so I take care of me. I can’t expect someone else to take care of me better than I’m taking care of myself. If someone’s energy isn’t healthy for me to be around, I have to make choices to protect me, not from a place of fear, but from a place of self-care. I want to serve the world with my best foot forward, and I can only do that by putting the oxygen mask on me first. The better I treat myself, the better I can treat the world outside of me.

I’m growing my own beautiful garden within my mind. I’m choosing to nourish this garden with lots of love. I’m choosing to grow and expand this garden through my loving actions towards myself and others. I’m choosing seeds from other’s beautiful gardens that match the loving energy I have inside me. How I maintain my garden is up to me. What plants, trees, and flowers I choose to plant is up to me. What seeds I choose to let go of is up to me. I choose not to let the smothering vines of fear take over my garden. I want to dig them out from the roots. Those roots told me I wasn’t lovable exactly as I am. Those roots said I had no value or worth. Those roots told me to fear what is different. I’m digging these roots up. I’m learning from what happens when I leave these vines unattended. I’m seeing how my self-love keeps these vines from coming back and smuggling all my beautiful species I’ve planted.

I’m worthy of the love I give to myself. I’m worthy of the time I contribute to my self-care. I’m worthy of the nurturing I feed my body, mind, and soul. I am created from Divine Energy, the purest of all lights. I honor the energy that created me by letting my love for myself shine through connecting me to Source energy, the strongest and most beautiful light that lives within me.

Today I’m Grateful

  1. I’m grateful that love cannot be contained within any ONE path
  2. I’m grateful to know my worth so that I can love myself
  3. I’m grateful for each day I get to expand and grow from the love within me
  4. I’m grateful for the opportunities I get to learn from other people’s loving actions
  5. I’m grateful to connect to the light of the Divine through the light shining within me.

 

With Love and Gratitude,

 

A Better Me
