I’m grateful for having people who show up to support me in so many different ways. I know the journeys I take can feel “out there” to some, but that’s because these are not meant to be their journeys—at least not right now. If it resonates, it is. I’m grateful I have people who honor and respect me for whatever journey I choose to go on. Having people who I know accept me for who I am is a true blessing. This past year has brought me some of the most amazing relationships, because the healthier I get, the healthier my relationships are.

A special thank you to the never-ending support of my family, friends, and partner in love along with all my amazing and thoughtful followers of FromALovingPlace.com. I also want to thank anybody who chooses love, abundance, and peace over fear, lack, and separation as much as possible, I appreciate your contribution to the light in the world. I’m even grateful for the people who show me what aligning with fear, lack, and separation makes possible, because it’s a great reminder for me of the importance of staying on the path of love, abundance, and peace.

With SO MUCH Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #243

I’m grateful for Universal messages of love, abundance, and peace. I’ve been reading inspirational books since I was fourteen. There are no new messages. I’ve studied books that go all the way to Gilgamesh translated by Stephen Mitchell, which is one of the oldest stories documented. We’ve been getting amazing guidance on how to live in the energy of love, abundance, and peace since the beginning of story telling. When something resonates inside of us, it’s because the information is already there. It may be covered in dirt and rubble, but it’s there. I’m so grateful for when I get to tap into it. I have to be aligned with love, abundance, and peace to be aligned with the Universal messages that unite us there.

I’ve been meeting all kinds of people lately who are tapped into these messages. I read it in their work, I hear it in our conversations, and I sit and say, “YES, YES, YES!” Life is an amazing journey when we are aligned with the energy we actually want to be living in. Before the Heart Wisdom panel I recently facilitated, I read both author’s books. The panel was on connecting to self, so I was looking for similar messages the books carried. As I was reading the books, I saw how we all say the same types of things. I was reading things I’ve been writing about in these Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace posts, in the book, and in my blog before that. I’ve read the same concepts said in different ways since I was fourteen years old. We all just say it in different ways as it relates to our own experiences, which is why every voice that shares it is so important. We could have read the same concept a 1,000 or more times, but one person says it in a way that feels right for us to absorb. I can write something that really resonates with one person, but doesn’t with another. It doesn’t mean one of us is right and the other is wrong, we are just interpreting information based on what we can absorb in the moment.

It took me three tries before I could read through and absorb the words in Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle, but when Oprah Winfrey did a class on A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle, I got that book instantly. Then I went back and could read Power of Now and connect with the messages. I didn’t have the experiences I needed yet to hear the messages in the way he was laying them out.

Sometimes, I will sense and underlying message of fear, lack, and separation that is buried under someone’s positivity. There messages won’t tend to resonate with me even if they are a best-selling author, unless I’m down in that energy too. Then I find myself aligning to Universal concepts, but not absorbing them, because I’m not aligned with love, abundance, and peace myself.

Today, I commit to appreciating Universal messages of love, abundance, and peace. As I direct my energy towards things and people aligned with love, abundance, and peace, I will appreciate the Universal messages. The messages that defy time and space. One of the messages that always gets me right to the core is, “United we stand, divided we fall.” Peacefully we stand, separate we fall. Same message, different words. Each twist helps me absorb the concepts deeper into my being. Sometimes it’s so wild that two people will write the exact same message at the same time. Both individuals went in to the Universal message pool and came out with the VERY same message word for word. I love seeing these things, it give me faith in the messages.

I also remind myself that there are Universal messages of fear, lack, and separation too. I can hear it our prejudices and judgments of others. We make ourselves separate from each other. I hear it in the desperation of win at all costs thinking that comes from lack. This is why people can be rich and still live in complete lack no matter how much they have. Then there is fear. Fear triggers hate, hate triggers rage, and brings on violence both inward and outward. I’m no better than any other human. I can tap into the Universal messages and become prisoners to my perspectives. If I don’t stay conscious, it can happen at any time. The beauty of what I do is that I’ve learned to recognize it quickly and use my tools to move back into the energy of love, abundance, and peace. The more I see the Universal messages of love, abundance, and peace, the more tools I have to get me out of the energy funks.

Today, I will be focusing on the concepts of love, abundance, and peace and everything that comes from them like joy, hope, faith, connection, unity, awareness, acceptance, forgiveness, surrender, freedom, compassion, and empathy amongst others. Just writing them makes me feel grateful for the many messages that leave such an amazing feeling in my heart.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #231

I’m grateful I believe in attracting and repelling energy. Just like magnets, I believe we attract and repel energy. If our energy aligns with someone else’s, we attract them into our lives in some way, shape, or form. If the energies repel each other, we will feel pushed a part. We move away from them or something comes up that a plan falls through. There is something about the two energies that are creating resistance in the present moment. I’ve learned to REALLY trust both when I’m attracted and when I’m repelled.

Energy doesn’t lie. Our energy is either aligned with love, abundance, and peace or fear, lack, and separation at any given moment in time. We will attract and/or repel people according to where our energy is. Even within those energy fields, where we focus our energy can determine who we will attract and/or repel at any given moment. I’ve seen this work so many times in my life. Even when I was attracting some pretty nasty stuff. It actually helped me become aware of when I was in negative energy field. I touched on this a few days ago, but let’s go deeper.

It took me attracting some pretty unhealthy romantic partners for me to get down deep enough to see that I wasn’t as positive of a person as the surface revealed. Deep down, I was hiding layers of shame, self-hatred, contempt, resentments, envy, and rage. That’s not even tapping into the unhealed trauma. The energy I was putting out was leaking toxic levels of fear, lack, and separation, which is why I attracted partners who were attracted to that energy. The healthier I got, the energies started repelling each other until one of us would left. I’ve never been so grateful for the power of energy in my life!! As I worked through the layers, the energies created more and more distance to the point where there is no emotional charge at all. Neither of the people is anywhere close to my life, but I have no toxic feelings for them. I absolutely trust that my energy is just in a VERY different place.

This doesn’t just happen romantically, that is just the most extreme. I’ve been attracted and repelled in all areas of my life: professional, spiritual, friendships, groups, organizations, loved ones, etc. It’s not about judgment, just how energy aligns. I trust whoever is in or out of my life is there for the exact time they are meant to be. I trust when people cancel plans, circumstances change, groups no longer feel right, and others do. I trust the energy.

When my agent and I were shopping my book, I knew exactly the energy I was looking for in a publisher, and that was the EXACT energy I got when I found Mango Publishing. I absolutely love the team there and I have great relationships with many of the authors, staff, and interns. I heard no and “We’re passing” A LOT before Mango Publishing revealed themselves to us. I trusted that the right person would align with the messages in the book. I wanted someone who saw vision and boy did she!

The deeper my belief gets in energies attracting and repelling each other, the less personal I take it when people don’t like me, what I write, who I am, or what I represent in the world. I trust whoever is meant to be close to me will. I trust whoever is supposed to read my work will. I believe that if it resonates with a person, it’s because our energies are aligned. I’ve picked up best-selling books that repel me. I’ve met best-selling authors who repelled me. They just aren’t meant for me. Those seeds are for someone else. If I’m meant to get something from a person or their work, I will be drawn to them and/or their work. I love picking out books to read this way. It’s one of the reasons I love when sample chapters or free previews are available of books and courses. They help me tap into the energy if the person has a voice that resonates or it doesn’t.

My friend and I read books together and talk about them every week. Years ago, we read a book and I swear the book was so hard for me to get through, but I knew there was a reason I still wanted to finish it. There was one chapter in the book that created a giant shift in my life around the way I prayed. I had to trust that even though the lesson was challenging, I was meant to go through it. My energy kept pulling me there, and I’m so grateful I trusted it. Reading and absorbing that one chapter is one of the best seeds I’ve EVER planted.

Here’s what else I learned about energy attracting and repelling: Just because energy attracts or repels doesn’t mean either person or group is bad or good. It simply means the energies don’t match up. Sometimes it may be because one person is in the energy of fear, lack, and separation and the other person is in the energy of love, abundance, and peace in that instant. It could be that even with the same energy fields, the focus of the energy doesn’t align. The beauty is if we are in a dangerous situation, and we trust the energy, people who are looking to do harm may completely avoid us because the energies don’t align. That part is not for me to judge. What is important to me is that I pay attention! When I notice definite examples of energy attracting and repelling, I thank God. The more I show my gratitude, the more I notice it. AND BONUS… because expressing gratitude keeps me in the energy of abundance. Win-win!

Today, I commit to focusing on the energy I’m attracting and repelling. This takes being completely present. I find that having a clear understanding of the energy fields of love, abundance, and peace and fear, lack, and separation are helpful. The more I understand these two groups, the more clearly I see when I’m attracting and repelling—AND what that means about where my energy is. This tool keeps me responsible and accountable for the energy I’m putting out there. It also helps me to be honest with myself, because energy doesn’t lie. There is no one I can blame or give credit to for my energy being where it is. Can people influence my energy? Only if I allow them to. I’ve given myself excuses a millions of times on giving others blame or credit, but the truth is if I didn’t want to be in an energy field, I wouldn’t be there. I’m the one who has to figure out what will help me get out of it, but nobody can do that part for me. They can nurture and support or attack and push buttons, but they can’t MAKE me shift.

When I want to attract people from the energy of love, abundance, and peace my energy needs to be in the place to see them in front of me or else I will repel them. If I’m not repelling people stuck in the energy of fear, lack, and separation, there is something inside me that is attracting the energy. That just means I have some learning to do as long as I keep my mind open to absorb the lesson.

My judgments of people be good, bad, or evil, really don’t serve me. This doesn’t mean I don’t get myself wrapped up in them sometimes, but they don’t serve me. They actually keep me from being open to see where my energy is aligning. My ego gets involved and I pretend I know better than what the energy is trying to teach me. That’s why today my focus is on just paying attention to the energy I attract and repel and thanking God every time I notice.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #230

I’m grateful I authentically love myself. This took me a VERY long time to get to. I can look in the mirror without self-abusing. I can say no and KNOW that I have healthy boundaries because I love myself. I can love someone else without taking on their feelings of guilt, shame, fear, lack, and separation. I can disagree with someone else and not slide into the energy of fear, lack, and separation. I can do all these things because I authentically love myself. I know that the one person I am responsible and accountable for is me and that I’m going to project out to the world whatever I feel most inside me, I want that to be love.

I didn’t even recognize the definition of love until I was open enough to see that my definition of love was laced with fear, lack, and separation, which is anything but love. Learning how to love myself was an essential piece of being able to live life from a loving place. Loving myself helped me to love others in a way I NEVER knew before. I am able to see people and circumstances in a way that I’ve never been able to see before I knew this love.

I love that I can tell when and when I’m not treating MYSELF with love and respect. When I used to treat myself like I wasn’t worthy of love, respect, time, compassion, and empathy, I would accept others treating me like I wasn’t worthy of it. I would fight for others to love and respect me. I would fight for people to give me their time, compassion, and empathy. I was expecting others to give me what I wasn’t giving myself—that’s not love.

I am who I am, and I love who I am. I choose my reality by the energy I align with to create it. I choose to create my reality with love at the core. I choose to project the love I have for myself out to the world as much as I can. I choose to work through my energy of fear, lack, and separation as it comes up, because it will. I will learn and grow from my shadow, because I love myself enough to embrace all of me both shadow and light.

Today, I commit to showing myself the love I deserve. It’s not enough to say that I love myself. I authentically love myself when I am willing to do the work. My actions speak louder than words. One of the techniques I use is to think about the expectations I have of others to show me they love me. Then, I take that list and can see all the ways I’m neglecting to show myself the love I deserve. I look at my list and anything that I’m expecting someone else to do that I don’t do for myself is what I need to work on to give myself the love I deserve. The more focused I am on what others aren’t doing for me or how they aren’t appreciating what I am doing is how I’ve come to determine when I’m not SHOWING myself enough love. Here’s a sample of how I’ve learned to show myself the love I deserve:

  1. I will show myself the love I deserve by MAKING the time to take care of my needs.
  2. I will show myself the love I deserve by ENJOYING my time with others.
  3. I will show myself the love I deserve by not expecting others to be who they are not.
  4. I will show myself the love I deserve by drinking plenty of water.
  5. I will show myself the love I deserve by taking time to stretch.
  6. I will show myself the love I deserve by giving love to others.
  7. I will show myself the love I deserve by treating myself like a life partner I want to live with.
  8. I will show myself the love I deserve by sitting outside and enjoying the peace and quiet (quality time).
  9. I will show myself the love I deserve by establishing healthy boundaries with others.
  10. I will show myself the love I deserve by serving other from a loving place (not a place to gain worth or get something back).

We all deserve to be the best life partners we can be to ourselves. The healthier the relationship we have with ourselves, the healthier the relationships we have with others.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #229

I’m grateful I became health conscious instead of a health prisoner. Here’s what is funny about us humans. We will often see the truth of something in one area of our lives or someone else’s, but not be able to connect it to other areas or our own lives. We also might see the big picture of how something is true out in the world, and then not be able to reign it enough to see how that means if it is true out there, it is true in the heart too for our individual lives. Health is the perfect example of this for me. I was someone who had health issues for many years, but never connected that my self-abuse, self-contempt, self-hatred, self-neglect, and unhealed traumas. They were pieces to why my body was working against me. I couldn’t connect that if we are made up of energy and the energy I’m putting into my body is toxic, I’m going to attract toxic things to my body. I was a prisoner of my health. My perspectives (thoughts and beliefs) about my health kept me prisoner. I hope you’ve been following along with this series, because if you have you might be having alarm bells go off right now if you’ve been paying attention.

When I was in a toxic relationship, I was having all these issues with my sexual and reproductive organs. I felt physically ill more than I didn’t. My body at one point shut down as it was screaming NO MORE! I was in another toxic relationship where I couldn’t poop at my boyfriend’s house, even if I stayed there for days. My body was literally full of shit, as I was in complete denial to see how toxic the the relationship I was in really was. Another time, I had gained 20 additional pounds and I was in a battle to get it off. I looked at my body with disgust and then busted my ass exercising and starving myself as the weight kept coming on. I couldn’t see that where I was putting my energy was in what I DIDN’T WANT, so I was creating more of it.

As I got mentally, emotionally, and spiritually better, my health started to improve in a natural way. People would tell me that I looked ten years younger. Better than looking younger, my body felt so much better. At 40, a doctor told me my labs were as close to perfect health as he has seen. This was right when I was graduating college and starting to write blogs on FromALovingPlace.com. I had stopped doing the intense workouts and began to find ones that a my body loved, like nature walks and yoga. I didn’t have to be in pain to lose the weight, which was a message I had been told so many times. It’s a perspective that I bought into, and actually caused resistance for me because I don’t like being in pain LOL. I didn’t exercise for a long time because believing in those messages. Remember perspectives are our power or our prison.

This doesn’t mean I don’t have issues, believe me, I have things come up, but they are always there to teach me something. I just have to remain open enough to listen. This is how I stay health conscious instead of being a health prisoner. If I believe that things happen to me and not for me, I’m prisoner. If I believe that things happen for me, not to me, I’m in the power to change, grow, and expand from whatever I’m faced with. Those two beliefs feel very different in the body. They create different energy in the body. If I’m working against my body by being in the energy of fear, lack, and separation, and trying to conquer it—I’m screwing myself! Now, I focus on what I want to see more of with my body, which is love, abundance, and peace and I make health choices from there. Instead of focusing on what my body can’t do or where it isn’t, I focus on what I can do. I’m grateful my body is my vessel of learning and absorbing for this life. My body has so much to teach me, I just have to remain open to listen.

I’m so grateful I learned how to be health conscious, but just like everything else, it takes daily work and daily practice to stay present to what my body is telling me, and just because I hear what my body is telling me, doesn’t mean I always want to listen, but the more I stay aligned with love, abundance, and peace, the more willing I am to do the work. One perspective that has put the passion behind my daily work to live health conscious is that not taking care of my body is a form of self-abuse and self-neglect. Whatever we project out comes back. If I’m projecting out that I accept abuse and neglect, I will get that back in the relationships I attract to my life. Those relationships can be in my career, personal, physical, or spiritual life, depending on where my energy is focused. That gives me the drive to stay aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace DAILY!

Today, I commit to doing the work to stay health conscious. I know where my mind needs to be in order for me to do the best work for my body—aligned with love, abundance, and peace. As I’ve talked about before on Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace, making lists about self-care can be very helpful, because when we really need self-care is when our minds are trapped inside a box of chaos (prison) that is filled with the energy of fear, lack, and separation. The directions are on the outside of the box written in the energy of love, abundance, and peace. That is the energy that frees us from the chaos. Knowing the tools we need to get out of the box before we get into the box, is a sure way of not being stuck in the box for too long. Here are some of the tools that work best to keep me health conscious:

  • Loving myself exactly the way I am
  • Healthy self-talk
  • Taking nature walks
  • Making time for social walks
  • Mediating
  • Tapping (EFT)
  • Doing exercises I enjoy (the Simply Fit Board with weights for me)
  • Making self-care a priority (Shaming ourselves is self-abuse)
  • stretching and conscious movement exercises (This helps me feel areas of my body that are holding onto toxic energy)
  • Being conscious of food and drink choices—paying attention to how they feel processing them and how they effect the health of my organs (overindulging in food, alcohol, drugs, etc is a form of self-abuse)
  • Listening to what my body needs (I only can do this when my mind is in a healthy mindset)
  • Asking/praying for guidance on how to move the blocked energy in my body
  • Being open to seeing the lessons my body is trying to teach me
  • Healing past traumas
  • Aligning with love, abundance, and peace DAILY!
  • Listening to audiobooks that I’m drawn to mental, emotional, and/or spiritual health
  • Reading books and/or articles that I’m drawn to about healthy living
  • Writing

There is no order to this list, and this is my list based on the life lessons I’ve learned. We have to figure out our own lists because not everything that works for me will work for you, and vice versa. Some people need to have a solid practice of specific rituals they do every day, and that is what works for them. Some may need the community of supporters to help to keep them accountable. I’ve needed different things at different times. If going to church every Sunday contributes to your energy of love, abundance, and peace, then that is meant to be on your list. The only suggestion I have for anyone making their own list is really understand the difference in what feeds your energy of fear, lack, and separation and what feeds your energy of love, abundance, and peace. If you put things on your list that link you to the energy of fear, lack, and separation (activities, ideas, practices, thoughts, and/or beliefs that cause you to feel fear, shame, or guilt) you will stay a health prisoner.

One of the perspectives that kept me in the energy of fear, lack, and separation was my negative attachment to the word “should”. If my thoughts go to I should be… or if I’m told you should… I feel it in my body. Sometimes it’s guilt, other times it’s shame, but overall it’s the messages that tap into thoughts and beliefs that are linked into the fear, lack, and separation that lie within me. Part of living consciously is paying attention to how our bodies and minds react when something feels right and when something doesn’t.

If you need more help deciphering, I invite you do go back and read through past Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace posts that guide you through this process (an easy way to scroll through these is at Facebook.com/LettersfromaBetterMe. You can also find a lot of insights in my 90-Day A Better Me Series (it’s free, just tap the name). Specifically for women, I have written the book Letters from a Better Me: How Becoming an Empowered Woman Transforms the World (click title for more information). This process happens in layers, more will always be revealed. Just stay open to the process and please don’t beat yourself up as you learn what works and what doesn’t for you. All that does is keep you in the energy of fear, lack, and separation, and the answers all lie in the energy of love, abundance, and peace.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,
