Quotes That Make My Soul Sing #22

“Forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace.”

Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I never knew how much holding onto resentment affected my inner peace until I started diving into my inner work. As long as I held onto my resentments towards myself or others, I projected chaos. When I started doing forgiveness work by writing letters, burning them, and then handing them over to God, I felt free. This didn’t mean that I didn’t shut plenty of doors, I did. I just no longer shut the door to my heart because of other people’s choices. I also stopped beating myself up over my own learning experiences. It is just as important to forgive myself as it is for me to forgive others if I want to maintain my peace.

Quotes That Make My Soul Sing #16

“I was once why I don’t participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I’ll be there.”

Mother Teresa

This was the third quote I used in Letters from a Better Me because it’s how I recognized the power and importance of representing what I stand for. If I put my energy into what I’m against, I contribute to the very energy that makes that collective energy stronger. When I speak out of rage and revenge, it’s the energy inside of me. If I’m not projecting inner peace, I’m not contributing to peace outside of myself. I’m only accountable and responsible for the energy I’m projecting, so the question becomes: What do I really want to create more of? I work on in my relationships, home community, writing, and interactions on social media.

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #325

I’m grateful I KNOW peace. Peace, just like love and abundance, is only available to experience in the present moment. Right here and right now I’m experiencing peace as I write these words. My focus is with my fingers gliding across the keyboard; my breath is even and steady; my mind is clear; my chest feels expansive; and there is nowhere else I want to be except for right here in this moment. In this moment, I KNOW peace. I can only create peace around me if I live peace within me. I can only project what I carry around inside me. When I live in internal chaos, I project, create, and attract chaos. In this moment, I choose to BE peace.

Today, I commit to BE in the KNOWING of peace. I love the feeling of peace. When I’m out of the present moment, I sometimes forget how easy it is to get back to peace. I’m not talking about sustaining the energy, just BEING in the KNOWING of peace in the next moment I’m given. I sometimes graze over how many peaceful moments I have in a day. Why put energy into moments I don’t feel peaceful? I want to BE in the KNOWING of peace, because whatever I focus on expands. The simply act of clearing the mind is knowing what it means to BE at peace. BEING in the KNOWING of peace doesn’t have to be anymore complicated than being present for a few deep breaths in and out. The more I practice BEING peace, the more peace I will be able to project out to the world.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #205

I’m grateful for the peace I feel after walking. No matter if I’m taking a walk in the woods, through the desert, up to the mountains, or around my neighborhood, I feel peace after coming home from a walk. Even if I leave the house fuming with anger, I come back to a place of peace in my heart. Walks for me are grounding. If I’m taking them with a friend, they can help me move through energy of fear, lack, and separation or lift me into higher energies of love, abundance, and peace. If I’m walking alone, I find my center by observing nature around me and being present. When I stop taking daily walks, I start to feel how it affects my head and heart space. When I’m not walking, I don’t give myself the place to process and it’s like my energy doesn’t know where to go.

If the weather doesn’t agree with me walking outside, I use my Simply Fit Exercise Board (link to show you what it is) to simulate the movement, and I watch or listen to something inspiring for the period of time I’m on the board. When I do that, I love the alignment I feel with the energy of love, abundance, and peace. I feel like sometimes I forget that everything happening in our bodies is connected. When I take care of my body, my mind benefits in a multitude of ways. When I take care of my mind, my body benefits in a multitude of ways. When I treat these things as separate, I pay the price in a multitude of different ways. I love knowing that I have a tool that can bring me back to peace whenever I’m ready to do the work.

Today, I commit to appreciating the peace I feel after walking. If I didn’t focus on the peace, I wouldn’t be able to stay in the energy of it very long. I use walking to align myself with the energy of love, abundance, and peace by paying attention. I do my best to stay present when I’m walking. I love looking around at the clouds, trees, flowers, plants, and wildlife. I love observing all the different noises the birds make. Some are actually quite entertaining. I love looking at the colors of the sky and different cloud formations. There are so many amazing things to appreciate. The more appreciate the more aligned I am with the energy of love and abundance. Then as I’m appreciating it all, I feel peace. I know I want to feel more peace so that I can create more peace around me. I have a lot more to offer the world when I’m aligned with love, abundance, and peace.

Today, my plan is to sit in my peace after I walk. That may just be the perfect time to meditate. In that meditation my focus will be on staying in the peace. Just typing the words feels right. We all have stressors. Knowing how we get to our peace is an important step to being able to live our best lives. Remember anything we want to feel from the outside world or expand on in the outside world, we have to live on the inside of us first. We have to know love, abundance, and peace in the deepest parts of ourselves, to feel it and understand it in the outside world. There is no ONE path to get us there. We have to find the path inward that works best for us. Once you begin this journey, door after door begins to open leading you down the path that is right for you. You will also see many doors close behind you as you learned what you were meant to learn.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #199

I’m grateful there is no ONE right way. When I opened myself up to see in perspectives. I discovered my way is not the ONLY way. Some of you might be thinking, well duh. For me, I needed to REALLY look at this one and not just when it was comfortable to do so. I used to beat myself up for not doing things RIGHT. I realized that sometimes what is more important than doing things RIGHT is making sure my energy is aligned with love, abundance, and peace over fear, lack, and separation. When I remind myself there is no ONE right way, I feel at peace. It takes the pressure off and reminds me to focus on what does matter—Aligning with the energy I want to see more of in the world.

Today, I commit to seeing opportunities to grow in my perspectives. Being aligned with love, abundance, and peace helps me live in the faith that no matter how things turn out, If I’m aligned I do what is RIGHT for the moment I am in. Some other people are going to look at things differently than I do. They need to do what is right for them in the moment they are in. That is not my business to judge that. I can get curious to try to understand where someone else is coming from. If I find myself judging someone, I need to ask myself: Where is my energy aligning? Being open gives me opportunities to grow.

When I’m aligning with fear, lack, and separation I don’t ever feel secure that I’m doing what is RIGHT. I live in a constant questioning and I get very wishy-washy. My thoughts can go towards a revenge mentality, which feels AWEFUL! My stomach gets all tied in knots and I often leave the situation wishing I did or said something other than what I did.

When I’m aligning with love, abundance, and peace I have this inner knowing that the decision I’m making is right in this moment. Here’s the thing though, as long as I’m aligned with love, abundance, and peace I can make a variety of different decisions and the the people around me can make decisions and I still stay centered knowing it will all work out and be okay. The situation can be a challenging one and even if I’m working to figure out what to do, I feel calm and peaceful while taking big breaths to gain clarity.

A game I like to play with myself is to find other ways people handle specific challenges. Instead of thinking of people as right and wrong, I will simply see things in the perspective of they are doing what is right for them in this moment. Then I watch how just thinking that thought affects me. I’m happy to say, every time I do it, I feel fully aligned with the energy of love, abundance and peace.

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #198

I’m grateful for my perspectives that encourage self-care. I know that living life as my healthiest self takes work. Just like it takes work to live as the sickest version of myself. Self-care is an act of love to myself. When I’m taking care of myself, I am a better partner, friend, daughter, mother, sister, and community member. I’ve learned how important it is to give myself the love that I deserve. I don’t expect others to give what I don’t give to myself. Self-care helps me set healthy boundaries with others. My perspectives on self-care are a great reminder that self-care makes me a better human. I’m not as irritable, reactive, worried, or stressed. The people in my life get the best of me and my healthy mindset keeps me stay aligned with love, abundance, and peace for longer time periods. I can feel it when I stop doing what works. I’m so grateful to be able to to know what does work to get me out of any darkness. I just have to choose to take care of myself. Self-care helps me to get out of my own way.

Today, I commit to looking at my perspectives that encourage self-care. Self-care takes commitment. If we want to operate from our healthiest place for the people in our lives, we have to do the work to hold ourselves responsible and accountable for what is going on inside of us. My self-care means I’m going to be more loving, patient, compassionate, kind, empathetic, happy, connected, etc. Self-care is my path to aligning with the energy of of love, abundance, and peace. Like I talked about last week, we have to know love and peace from the inside in order to recognize it in the world around us. We have to live gratitude to know abundance. How much time are we going to give ourselves to ground and center ourselves?

Self-care is not selfish or self-seeking. Self-care is a way that we can be responsible and accountable for the energy we are putting out in the world. If we are not paying attention to that, we can get sucked into the abyss of fear, lack, and separation. That is what is self-seeking. When we are lost in our own abyss, we do more damage to the people around us. We start unconsciously spreading fear, lack, and separation. We become prime targets to believe in conspiracy theories and engage in cult activities. We can only succumb to these things if we aren’t conscious of where we attach to the energies of fear, lack, and separation.

Self-care is about committing to aligning with the energy we want to see more of in the world. We have to live it inside us first before we can amplify this energy around us. These are just some of my perspectives that encourage my self-care. These are the things I tell myself so that I MAKE time! As many of you know, I love writing letters from a better me. These are my commitments to myself. The video below is one of my letters of commitment. You can see the written version if you click on the word here. My book is filled with many of the letters that I used to nurse myself back to a healthy mindsets.

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #196

I’m grateful for my perspectives that bring me hope. Hope is what gives me the vision of a better future. Hope is what encourages me to make better choices today. Hope is my guide to envisioning my goals and dreams of helping more people awaken the best version of themselves. My perspectives of hope are what make me believe that the healthier we are, the more we can create positive change in the world. They also encourage me to keep working at breaking unhealthy patterns in my life so that I can break the chains for future generations.

Now, there is a fine balance of having perspectives of hope, without blinding us to what is happening in the present moment. The trick is not confusing hope with a fairytale. When hope acts as a map to help us align with the energy of love, abundance, and peace, we can open the the doors up for ourselves and go on some amazing journeys. If we use hope with the combination of fear, lack, and separation, we create our own nightmares. Many of us have heard the saying, “Be careful what you wish for.” It’s important to be conscious of what we are hoping for.

It took me a long time to understand how to have hope without attaching to an outcome. I had to learn to let my hope give me signposts while enjoying how the journey unfolds. I realized having hope didn’t have to mean having expectations of how EXACTLY things will turn out. My hope helps me align with the way I want to live in today. My hopes help me question my choices in a constructive way as long as I’m aligning them with the energy of love, abundance, and peace.

Today, I commit to looking at my perspectives that bring me hope. I love all the exercises I’ve been doing this past week. Just thinking of all the perspectives I have that align me with the energy of love, abundance, and peace have helped me to appreciate all the things that work in my life. That in itself ignites even more hope in my soul.

One of my perspectives that brings me great hope is my belief in God contracts. I’ve been thinking about this one a lot lately. This particular hope helps me to keep putting one front in front of my other during the best and worst of times. This one reminds me that I can choose to fulfill my God contract aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace or fear, lack, and separation. I feel like it’s picking out the car I want to travel this journey of life on. I can upgrade or downgrade my car as much as I choose to do so. I love thinking about my perspectives that bring me hope.

I also love listening to other’s hopes that come from the energy of love, abundance, and peace. I can feel my soul light up when someone else is shining theirs next to me. I love that we become like batteries for each other to keep the light shining longer. It truly is a beautiful part of the journey.

What perspectives bring you hope?

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #195

I’m grateful for my perspectives that bring me peace. I used to believe that peace came from outside of me. I had no idea that I would live in the energy of separation until I found inner peace. I didn’t realize that I was feeding the energy of chaos and separation because I was blaming things outside of me for not being peaceful. MY THOUGHTS WEREN’T PEACEFUL! Of course, it was impossible to attract peace to my life. I sabotaged peace because I was attracted to chaos. That’s where my perspectives were aligned.

I’m so grateful I began the journey of going inside to tap into my peace. As I changed my perspectives around peace, I saw more and more opportunities for peace internally and externally. I started attracting friends who emanated peace. I learned what I project out, I get back. This doesn’t mean if I say positive things, positive things will come to me. It means my energy has to be aligned at the core, which is how I treat myself. The more peaceful that energy got, the more peace I brought into my life.

our perspectives can align us with with peace or separation in any moment. Separation breeds chaos. Peace breed unity. I’m so grateful my perspectives align my actions with what I want to create more of in the world on most days. The key once again is simply to be aware of my perspectives of truth and ask myself:

Are my perspectives aligning with the energy I want to create more of? Consciousness is key!

Today, I commit to looking at my perspectives that bring me peace. If I want to make space for peace around me, I have to feel it inside me. The perspectives that bring peace to my life come from the belief (my perspective) that my soul is safe. When I feel safe, I can breathe a long full breath that brings even more peace to me in that moment.

Before I do interviews, I do a meditation. I ask God to give me the words that will help others. My belief is that God will make sure that everything I’m meant to say is. Therefore, I can feel peace knowing it’s all working out exactly the way it’s supposed to. I do a similar prayer before speaking events, sometimes things I had no plan of saying come out, but I still feel peace, because I know it’s what was meant to come out.

When I feel like I’m starting to align with the energy of separation, I step back and take three long deep breaths. My perspective is that when I do that, I move myself from separation to peace. Since that is what I believe, I make space for it to work that way. Again, consciousness is key! We have to know we are in an energy field to move out of it or deeper into it.

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and peace #194

I’m grateful for my perspectives that bring me abundance. Abundance doesn’t just mean financial abundance. Abundance is a very large quantity of anything, so it can include anything we feel like we have an abundance of like love, spirit, friends, successes, etc. Living in abundance is living in gratitude, because we are focused on everything we DO have. It is the opposite of living in lack, the world of not enough.

The perspectives that come from lack can make a person feel desperate and do desperate things to attempt to overcome their feeling of lack. If people are feeling lack, they don’t believe that they have everything they need in this moment.They believe their life would be better if it looked a different way than what they are capable of doing in this very moment. I don’t know anyone who has never felt lack from time to time, but some people are so consumed by it that they will try to win at all costs to overcome it, which includes lying, cheating, and stealing. A person can be financially rich and never live in the energy of abundance. A person can be surrounded by people who love them and never feel an abundance of love. Having things, doesn’t mean we are abundant. Appreciating what we have is what makes us abundant.

The beauty of filling myself with perspectives that bring me abundance is that it makes more room for even more abundance. My smile is taking over my face as I write these words just feeling all the areas my life is abundant. I also get to see where I still have work to do in making room for abundance in other areas. I’m grateful that I’m conscious of my perspectives, because it gives me wonderful room to grow.

Today, I commit to looking at my perspectives that bring abundance into my life. The air fills my lungs with such tremendous gratitude as I focus on my perspectives. I feel like I live in abundance, though many looking onto my life wouldn’t think so because of their interpretations of abundance, but what other people think of our abundance doesn’t matter. The only person’s perspectives around abundance that matter for how I live my life are my own. If I’m comparing my life to someone else’s and don’t feel like I have enough, I’m living in lack. I’ve noticed that abundance is an area I have to really be clear about my perspectives that I’m buying into.

The consumer world wants us to live in lack because that is how they sell products. I pay close attention to my thoughts when I’m thinking about what a person is trying to sell me and how I feel inside listening to their pitch. I can see when my perspectives are falling into the energy of lack. Then, I can write down that perspective and I come up with multiple perspectives that will align my energy with abundance again. I can’t tell you how many times doing this little thing has saved me unnecessary money spent, which in-turn aligned me with more financial abundance. Buying anything from a place of lack, only creates more lack.

Let’s talk body image and living a healthy lifestyle. I used to live in lack around weight loss. I would walk on a treadmill for an hour a day sweating my ass off running, walking uphill, and walking at a fast pace. I was miserable eating the foods and I wasn’t losing weight!!! I lived in the energy of lack when it came to my body and how it looked. Then I started doing the work to love myself exactly as I am. I started looking in the mirror and appreciating everything my body has done for me. Instead of cursing at it, I started thanking it. I started walking outside and listening to inspirational audiobooks and meditations on my walk. I walked at slower pace, enjoyed the scenery, and didn’t think about how many calories I was burning. I started making things I enjoyed eating and because my mind was in a healthier mindset, I started being attracted to healthier foods. My perspectives were aligned with abundance and the only thing that lessened was the pounds on the scale.

Another perspective that I’ve had for a long time is that money shows up. I believe (my perspective) when I’m meant to have something or go somewhere, the money shows up. If the money didn’t come, it’s not a part of my journey having that thing or going that place at this moment in time. This perspective keeps me from being in a place of lack when I don’t get what I want. I have so many more that I will enjoy looking at throughout the day.

What are your perspectives that bring you abundance?

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,
