Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #246

I’m grateful for what does show up. In a nutshell, that is abundance. My energy is focused on the blessings of my day. I’m grateful for everything from the quarters I find in pockets to the many blessings of my amazing relationships. I’m grateful for the people who read my words. I’m grateful for the words I read. I’m grateful for the money I do have. I’m grateful for the opportunities I get to grow into the best version of myself. When I get out of bed, I get to breathe and live. A simple breath can bring me AWE by focusing on the magnitude of what that means.

It is so easy to get lost in the world of lack. That is the energy of “not enough”. Some of the wealthiest and poorest people are stuck in this energy. Here’s the cool thing, some of the poorest and richest people live in the energy of abundance, which is living in gratitude for what does show up. The difference is where a person’s energy is aligning the majority of the time: fear, lack, and separation OR love, abundance, and peace.

I’ve learned that my life flows A LOT better when I’m aligned with love, abundance, and peace. The Divine guidance, Divine connections, and Divine financial abundance show up as needed based on what I’m projecting out to receive back. I learned a long time ago, I can’t fake the energy of abundance, I’m in it or I’m not. I’ve also learned that the shift from lack to abundance can take a matter of seconds if I really focus my energy on being grateful for what does show up. I love how this has worked in my life again and again.

Today, I commit to focusing on what DOES show up in my life. YES, I’m going to spend the day making sure I’m aligned with the energy of what gives me the best outcome, which is love, abundance, and peace. The quickest way I know to move me into this energy is to focus on the things that do show up in my life.

For anyone joining me today, please note, this does not mean we don’t honor our feelings wherever they are. When doing this kind of work, it’s important to name and pay attention to our feelings because they are there trying to show us something. We don’t want to miss that. This is not fake it until we make it. Today is about authentically focusing our energy on what does show up and watching where focusing on that energy takes us throughout the day.

I like to begin from the beginning of the day:

  • Oxygen showed up to supply me with a way to breathe.
  • My heart and blood are working and they are working great, YAY!
  • My limbs all have circulation and are ready to move!
  • My dog shows up with love and cuddles.
  • The warm water shows up to give me a wonderful cleaning.
  • My senses show up so I can feel the water, smell the soaps, hear my audiobook, and taste the water in the shower.
  • Blueberry coffee shows up to make my soul smile as my senses delight.
  • My children wake-up to start a new day.
  • My eyes work, which mean I can read and write to my heart’s content.
  • Divine guidance shows up to give me my assignments for the day.
  • I get to celebrate the love ones I do get to see and talk to today.
  • The money I need to survive is available to me today.
  • I have a safe and loving environment to live in.
  • I see so many wonderful birds to enjoy.
  • I love seeing the beautiful clouds.
  • I doing what I love with my writing and creating.
  • All the people who I’m meant to help today are crossing my path.

The goal is simply acknowledging what does show up for me as often as I can remember. I hold the feeling of gratitude for what shows up in my life moment to moment. Sometimes I get to the amazing feeling of pure AWE that brings me to tears. If challenging feelings come up, I focus my energy on the specific feelings and what messages the feelings are trying to tell me. I might then ask for Divine guidance to help me move through the feelings. As long as I don’t do any numbing activities, I will usually find my guidance in a book, a conversation, or a Divine guided experience that reveals a step to moving through the feelings. By doing this, I contribute to the feeling of AWE by watching what shows up even in the throws of painful feelings. I’ve moved myself through some pretty hard times this way. Avoiding the feelings is contributing to the energy of fear, lack, and separation. Even when I’m in that energy, I’ve learned not to do anything that adds to it if I can stay aware enough in the moment.

I know this practice helps me align with the energy of love, abundance, and peace in a very beautiful way. The more days I can keep the practice going, the more abundance I feel. I’ve had so amazing things happen to me after an extended period of doing this. The key is to stay aware of where my energy is going and see how it expands out to the people around me the more aligned I am. I love being able to spread love so effortlessly. That’s what happens the more aligned we are. This is the begin of BEING the change. Sometimes it’s not about the doing, we have to get to the place where we are authentically BEING so that we can contribute to the world from a loving place.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #211

I’m grateful for the people who show up and the ones that don’t. I used to hold grudges against people who didn’t show up when I thought they should. I would get so angry and feel let down on a regular basis. Living with these resentments kept me aligned with fear, lack, and separation. I chased away good people in my life because my focus was on the people who WEREN’T there, instead of focusing on the ones who were. I’m so thankful that many of those people came back into my life when I aligned with the energy of love, abundance, and peace.

Here’s what I’ve learned: the people who are supposed to be there, always are. Not always in the way of future sense. I mean, the person or people who are there for us in a moment in time are the ones who are supposed to be there. If that wasn’t the case, the reality of the situation would be different than it was. If someone doesn’t show up that I thought “SHOULD” be there, that is my ego. Who am I to say they should be there? They were meant to be exactly where they were because that is a part of their journey. They weren’t meant to be there for me because they weren’t there—THAT’s the reality!

So many amazing blessings have occurred in my life because of a person not being there, because it made space in my life for the people who were. I trust that when I speak at virtual event, everyone who is supposed to be in that room is who is meant to be there. If a friend tells me that they got tickets and they don’t go or something comes up…it’s because they weren’t supposed to be there, otherwise they would have been there.

People have asked me if I get mad at friends who haven’t read my book. The answer is no. The people who read my book are the people it’s for. If people don’t read my book, the book wasn’t for them, at least right now. If they pick up the book years down the road, well than the book was meant to be a part of their journeys.

I love how it feels to put my energy on the people who do show up, and be grateful for the ones that don’t because if it weren’t for them, I wouldn’t have the space to appreciate the people who are there. People can pop in and out of our lives. I trust if someone is meant to pop in, they will. If they are meant to pop out, they will.

Another beautiful lesson I’ve learned is when I think someone “should” show up and they don’t, I have to look at my expectations of that person. If someone’s actions aren’t aligning with their words or I don’t feel aligned with love, abundance, and peace when I’m with them, I need to ask myself: Do I really want this person to be there? When the answer is no, them not showing up is a blessing that led to self-discovery. That leaves an opening for more people to show up that ARE meant to be there.

Right now my life is filled with all kinds of people who bring different gifts to it. I truly believe they are Godsends. If I get a call from someone who needs a friend and I haven’t talked to them for months or years, I believe if they reach out to me, it’s because I’m the one who is supposed to be there. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be available or they wouldn’t have even thought to reach out to me. There are no grudges—only what is. That is reality.

I’ve discovered that I don’t have to create stories about people showing up or not. I just sit in gratitude for both. I’ve learned from both. I’ve been challenged by both. But through it all, I’m blessed by both.

Today, I commit to appreciating the people who do and don’t show up. Just writing this piece makes me grateful for both. The pandemic created some distance between some friends and brought me closer to others. I’ve met so many new people since this pandemic began, and if other people didn’t go on their own journeys, I wouldn’t have had the space in my life for the ones who are here right now. The people who are in my life right now are EXACTLY the ones I need to be there, until they aren’t. I have regular calls with people and I have people who pop in from time to time.

Here’s something really cool about being in this energy…Just as I was typing the words above, a notification came on my screen. One of my friends who I was thinking of in the very moment, responded to a comment I made on social media. She showed up in perfect timing to deepen my appreciation. I stopped to text her and we shared a moment of connection. This is such an amazing journey. The reason I love being in this energy of appreciating both is because right now my heart is overwhelmed with the energy of love, abundance, and peace. Tears are filling my eyes because I feel so blessed. It’s that beautiful reminder that everything happens in perfect timing.

I love knowing when I’m meant to be there for someone else, because I will be the one who is there. I don’t have to feel bad or guilty for the times I’m not there, because I know the people who were meant to be there were. If the person was alone, I know that was a part of their journey too. I’ve had a lot of beautiful lessons that came when nobody showed up. I take that as a sign I needed the space to connect spiritually. I feel very strongly that if a another person or I don’t show up, it’s because my journey is taking me somewhere else and so is theirs. Why spend time in the energy of fear, lack, and separation over that? I rather stay in the energy of love, abundance, and peace.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,
