360 Days of Gratitude (Day 48) What does #Success mean to me?

FaithHMMM…Good question!

Questions like this are so complicated in the world we live in these days.  Some measure #Success…and that’s a good thing.  You need to know where you are going in order to see how far you’ve come.  But something’s can’t be measured…only felt.

You know I have been pondering what to write lately and I’ve been in a bit of a dry spell. It is a challenge…a grateful challenge. I write based on spiritual inspirations…or something that strikes me as interesting.  I have wrote, but nothing that really gave me goose pimples.  Oh well!  At least I tried…ego sometimes stands in the way of actual publishing though.

So back to topic…I’m sure that I’m not the only one asking themselves that question, but what does it mean to me and what would it take to create this “Success” energy everyday.

I guess that intention has a lot to do with that.  #Success doesn’t have to be this grand quest to find the last million dollars on the planet…although if you guys know of that quest…please give me the 411. LOL

#Success can be the little things that happen in the course of your day…you know the little things that matter.  Are you doing them? Did ya even notice? Are you staying mindful about where you are and what you are doing?

What would it take to be completely drunk in the moment and laugh hysterically at something stupid or better yet…make someone else laugh hysterically?  Something happens in my heart when I can do that for someone else!  It becomes alive with passion.  Awe yes passion!!

Passion is #Success on steroids!!!!  I love it when I see the perfect moment through the lens of my camera.  The picture above is one that I almost missed!!!  I was driving 75 miles an hour and wizzed past this beautiful moment.  Baby I turned around for a second look!!!! Passion is always knowing the magic is just around the corner…I love that!!!  I am (after all) always at the right place at the right time…yes that would be me!!!

#Success is…because you decide it to be so! 

Example:  I have been sitting in my garden and enjoying the spring day…trying to write this very blog and down my foot is a wasp.  He can’t fly.  We just had a big rain so maybe he got wet.  I don’t know, but as I watched him walk around my garden

He starts to climb my little ivy plant.  He was going from leaf to leaf and then he got stuck.  He was at the top of one group of leaves, but he didn’t want to be there and he seemed to be frantic.  He kept trying to get to this other group of leaves, but they were out of his reach and no matter what he did, he kept falling off and then ending up in the same place.

I felt so bad for him, but he didn’t!

This tiny little wasp, kept trying and trying!  He fell off and then he got back on again. Finally he found a new way and reached his goal.  I don’t know why he wasn’t able to fly or why he had to be on this particular leaf, but he didn’t stop! All he cared about was the end result. I know this doesn’t seem like much, but I am not the wasp…and neither are you.

But this is what I learned watching this little wasp…The falls are simply part of the journey.

Hmm…something to think about!

THE FALLS ARE SIMPLY PART OF THE JOURNEY!

I guess they are right when they say life is 20% of what happens and 80% perception!  So I ask the question how am I perceiving my life…for that matter how do you perceive your life?

Mr. Wasp…had a journey (at least for that moment) and he didn’t let anything stop him from complete his desire to be on that leaf!  He is a #success!  Task well done!

So what is my passion in this moment?  Remember that passion is #success on steroids.

In this moment it is this blog writing it makes me yearn to write more and do more.  I know that I am infinite…as I am a spiritual being in human form and I agreed to come here to finish my mission to give to the collective and grow us back to love, passion, adventure and absolute knowledge.  That is what I agreed to do and I do it with passion!

I am truly a #success when I try to do more, give more, receive more, laugh more, smile more, kiss more, stay connected to the now and learn more about who I am!!!

I sometimes have to remember that I am powerful beyond measure and my life has a purpose, because I live it that way!  My purpose isn’t always clear, so many of the things I’ve done to help others I am totally oblivious too and yet they had significant meaning to someone else. Sometimes it is just a smile you give to a stranger could change their whole day.  It may have given them hope when they had none…you don’t know!!!!  So in saying that, be mindful!  Stay present and in the moment and do it with love.

Remember that we aren’t privy to everything…yet!

But I will tell you this…Being Human is a #Success.  Being Loving is a #Success.  Being a friend to a stranger is a #Success.

So I write this knowing that one of you needed to hear this message and know that you too are powerful & beautiful beyond measure.  Your life is making a difference. In this moment there is more right with you than there is wrong with you…no matter what is wrong with you!

We all are here for a reason and to make a difference.  To bring more love into your life you just have to expect it and it will be there.

I am grateful to each and everyone of you because you inspire me to be a #Success everyday.  Thank you for helping me putting pen to paper today…this is my journey in this moment!

Today is going to be MY BEST DAY EVER!!!

Today I made someone smile and I am grateful!

Thank you! Thank You!! THANK YOU!!!

360 Days of Gratitude (Day 47) City Girl Made for Country Livin

rainbowToday is and has been My Best Day Ever!!!

I am hanging at a friend’s place while he’s out of town. I’m sitting on the front porch as a rainstorm passes by. The sounds and smells are intoxicating and the show is even more exhilarating. There is actually natural color here. I love all the different shades of green! It is surprising the mixture of fragrances that dance with the rain and mixture together is absolutely inspiring to me in this moment.

My friend’s home is an old house built almost 100 years ago. I love that it wears its age. Beautiful workmanship that reminds me of an old craftsman style house. But she’s old and as beautiful as she is wears her age.

The character is appealing…at least to me! LOL

The land is mostly wild but there are some signs of civilization…in the place where there was a garden there are calla lilies growing wild. They are stunningly beautiful fuchsia and white and I love their smell. It makes me wonder when they were planted. No one has really lived in this place for 20 years. Well not until my friend moved in and I know he didn’t do it!

Heck there is a Wisteria that is over 10 feet tall and it has a trunk that twists and turns. It is a vortex unto itself. I love the smell and the purple & yellow flowers it wears them only once in a season. Wildflowers of every color are everywhere. Not just on this property but everywhere. It is a photographer’s dream.

Out here in the country it is all about the beauty in the simple things of life. In my imagination this is what Heaven is like and I am thrilled. I am in Heaven on Earth.

In the distance there is a pasture with a huge forest in the background. I watch in amazement as the deer come out of the forest one by one and feed on the sweet grass in the field. When I first came to this place I was all excited and clod hopping around trying to get my camera and get a shot, now we know each other. They don’t run away anymore…they check me out and then start eating again. It’s almost like their saying, “Oh it’s you!” LOL I have been accepted by the deer!!!! Yeah baby!

There is no way to describe how that feels!!! It makes me feel complete and connected. Awesome feeling!!! I love it here because I AM ONE WITH MOTHER EARTH & THE UNIVERSE.

On one side, She is so powerful and deadly carving the land with wind, lightening and driving rain and on the other hand she is an artist and creates so much love and abundance through the colors of the rainbow. It is a balance and I am blessed to recognize it and am grateful to do so.

There is a passion that exists out here in the country…a freedom if you will.

Even the most irritating things, like a rainy day are magic in the country. It is almost as if Mother Earth is playing her most brilliant concerto just for me.

How blessed are we all to live on this blue and green dot in the middle of the Universe. We are Divinely Blessed and Supremely Favored to live in paradise.

I love this place and this moment in my life to sit on the front porch in a rain storm and listen to life and the songs of Mother Earth. All is well and I drink it in like a cold drink on a hot sunny day. It quenches the thirst in my soul and I am ecstatic with the unfolding.

Sometimes I wish this moment could last forever, but all things in life must change and we must adapt to whatever the moment brings. 

I read this today…It is part of The Secret by Rhonda Byrne

There is a difference between feeling gratitude and appreciation for something and feeling attachment. Gratitude and appreciation are states of pure love and attachment contains fear of losing what you are attached too. When it comes to something you want in your life gratitude and appreciation attracts more of it into your life while attachment pushes it away.

So to remove the attachment, you must keep shifting your state. Shift your state until you come into alignment with the feeling of gratitude and appreciation. Once you have done this you will find that fear is no longer associated and you become a vibrational match to that which you desire.

Now I know I’m paraphrasing but I hope you get the picture!!! It is all about being in a state of love and appreciating what is in that moment. Release that which does not serve you. It’s blocking your flow chickadees!!!

Remember that when you go with the flow and loving accept all that is…You can manifest a rainbow in a storm too!!!

Living all countrified and stuff in my cute little rainbow vortex

Thank you! Thank You!! THANK YOU!!!

360 Days of Gratitude (Day 44) Living like it matters and it does!

Infinity1I love this!

I’m back for a red hot minute!!!

I have been so busy lately and I am sorry for not keeping in touch, but a girl gets excited when her manifestations start taking off!  It has been a world wind lately.  I finally got off the road for a minute and to be completely honest all I wanted to do was sleep and eat King Cake…so I did! LOL!  What a blast!  I never knew my bed could be so much of a friend…but it is!!!

I am so bless that I have sewn the seeds of my abundance, it has given me so much freedom in my life.  Most of you don’t know it but I work as a PA (Public Adjuster).  I help homeowners & business owners when they need help with their insurance claims.  It is a wonderful profession and if you like helping people it is an awesome way to help people and make a decent living.

 Well the busy season is here and my promise to you is to write at least one blog a week and to do my reading on Sunday.

Today is a rainy day and I find myself in my favorite place…writing.

Now a days I am in the an awesome place and I have more love, light and abundance that I can shake a stick at.  I am grateful for it all!  Sometime though you have to remember where you come from in order to appreciate all that you have…mentally, financially, spiritually.  It is all about living a well balanced life so, if you don’t mind I will share my testimony.  Remember that we all have a story to tell and sometimes they aren’t all pretty…but they need to be told!

Here is some of mine.

I haven’t always been the bright cheery girl that you know today.  It was a journey that brought me here. I have lived, as we all do, with contrast that has molded me and brought me through valleys and plateaus.

Not so long ago my life was a complete mess and I was lost…completely lost with no hope in this world.  I sank into a depression that wouldn’t allow me to breathe so I drank myself into oblivion.  I didn’t want to feel…anything and felt like a complete failure in life.

So at the ripe old age of 44 and living with nothing and no one.  I lived with the fear and wouldn’t allow light into my life.  Everything was a war…that raged from the inside and was reflected back to me on the outside.  I felt absolute guilt from things that happened in my life 30 years before and I bathed in that guilt and said to myself, “This is all you deserve”. Unfortunately I believed that.  I feared everything and everyone.  I was the queen of my own self sabotage!

So here’s a bit of my story and then I will skip to today…

When I was young…I had this amazing gift of sight.  They call it Clairvoyance, but I called it Daydreams.  I would see little things, flashes if you will of the future.  Some were totally awesome and some not so much.  The last vision or daydream that I had came to me in April of 1975.  It was horrifying and scarred the hell out of me because it was about my beloved baby brother Danny.

Danny was the most awesome spirit I had ever known in my short 14 years on this planet.  He was amazing and so accomplished in the short time he was here.  I remember at the age of 2 he could ride a banana seat Schwinn.  We had to hold it up for him to get it going and he was too short to sit on the seat and touch the pedals, but that didn’t stop him.  That little boy rode it perfectly on the first try.  It was funny to watch him…he had no idea what gravity was.  He just did it!  He could do anything he wanted to do and lived his life with NO FEAR!  He tried to do everything and was always in a rush to try something new.  He was in a hurry to live his life, like he knew some secret that no one else knew.

I remember once, my dad came home and Danny was running around the house naked as a jaybird and wearing nothing but a smile.  Daddy said to him, “Get your ass in the bath!”  We were all in the living room and Danny answered him.  He said, “Fuck you old man” and took off out the front door.  LOL We all stood there with mouths gaping wide open in total shock!!!!  Danny was 4 at the time.  OMG was Daddy pissed!

He told me to get his ass back in the house and I ran after him.  To be honest, I was proud of him and his tenacity.  I laughed the whole time I was chasing him down and watching him as his little dingle berries were flapping in the wind.  FREEDOM!  It was hard for me to catch him because I was laughing so hard I almost pee’d my pants.

Finally when I caught him, I told him that you know you have to go back.  He leaned down and picked some yellow dandelions and said that he would give those to Daddy to make up and believe it or not they worked.  He always had a knowing about things. He was an old soul!!!

So back to my “Day Dream”…I remember sitting in the back of the car and we were going to Granny’s house.  I always loved sitting in the back, because no one else liked riding backwards.

It was strange because it took me in like no other daydream before and completely detailed.  I could see my sister (3) her girlfriend Debbie (3) & Danny…he was 5.  We were all so happy and excited because we had this big bag of candy.  We were walking out the door of the store and I could see the parking lot.  I had this brown paper bag full of candy and other items and three kids with me.  I had the girls hold hands and I told Danny to stay by my side.  He was the oldest so I thought he would listen.

As we approached the road I said to the kids, “When I say go, we will run across the road…Okay?”  I looked at the girls to my left and then in a flash Danny took off.  A car was coming and I couldn’t grab him fast enough and he was hit.

This was my Day Dream.  I told my mom, but she told me to stop imagining things that nothing is going to happen to Danny.  One month later he died in the exact same manner.

I remember trying to grab him, but it was as if an energy force was stopping me from moving…everything was in slow motion.  Danny tumbled through the air like a rag doll.  I remember ever time his head hit the pavement.  He flew at least 100 feet tumbling and tumbling and I let out a warrior scream that I know could be heard for  miles.

In that moment, I knocked the girls back and commanded them to stay there as I began to run to Danny. I could see the clerk from the store come out and grab the girls.  All of a sudden, I ran but my feet never touched the ground.  It was as if the Angel that stopped me from saving Danny was flying me to his side.  People across the street that saw it happen told me later that they never saw me move.  I was with the girls one moment and with my brother the next.  They called it teleporting…but I knew it was the angel.

When I reached my baby brother, I gently turned him over and cradled his head.  I could feel that it was crushed.  He opened his eyes for just one moment and said,” I love you…Goodbye”.

Then war cry number 2 and I was screaming for help!  HELP ME!!!!! HELP ME!!!!  HELP MY BROTHER!!!  HE’S HURT BAD HELP ME!!!

I whispered to him, Danny don’t go! Don’t go baby don’t go!!!  I love you baby…don’t leave me!!!

There is so much more to this story.  Especially the part about how I blamed myself for not grabbing him and looking to the right instead of the left first.  But it happened…exactly how it was suppose to and for 30 years I carried that guilt inside of myself and used it as a knife to cut myself.

Needless to say that he is now one of my Guardian Angels.  I sentenced myself to a 30 year sentence and I served it.  That was my choice.  Today I make better choices.  Starting with forgiving myself and releasing it!

This was exactly how Danny’s contract with the Universe was and he knew it.  It was simply his time and I am blessed to have such an awesome brother that loved me then and loves me in this very moment!  He is always with me and loves me with passion.  He knew that his time was short and live it with passion.

He has been my best teacher.  He was mindful about everything he wanted and lived in the moment.  Now I do too!!!

So when I say to you, “Live your life like it matters.” Fucking Do It!  You don’t know what’s around the corner and you don’t know how much life you or your loved ones will be with you!

Live your life with mindfulness.  So many times we just drift off and go somewhere else into the future or the past.  Life is what is!!! Right here, right now-Tuned in, taped in and turned on and you have nothing but this moment…so be in it!  It matters!!!

Check yourself often!  Mindfulness is a practice. Are you sitting with the kids and acting like you are listening but in reality you are checking the score to the game on your phone.  Stop that right now!!!! As long as you are breathing there is more right with you than wrong with you and this moment is precious!  You’ll never have it again.

When you discover what you are and how to live your life like it matters…doors, windows and mystical things start to open for you!!!
Life no matter the circumstances is magical and a learning experience for us all.  There are more ways to love than to you know and I am grateful that I am on this magical path. I am living my life like it matters.  That’s the way my brother lived his life and right here, right now I am living my life the same way too.
It doesn’t really matter what the trauma or drama was or is in your life.  When you live in the NOW all is well and you can face any obstacle.  Life is meant to be fun, but when it’s not…make it fun. Or at the very least make it a learning experience and share your testimony my brothas and sistas!  We are here to serve each other!  We are here to learn…after all this is Earth School. So believe that you too are student and teacher.  Age has nothing to do with knowledge.  After all a 5 year old taught me…although it did take 30 years to master it.
Let my life be a lesson and live your life with passion!

Zero is the clean canvas from which you create your master piece.

So start painting my many Picassos

In dedication to a life well lived…I love you Danny…my best teacher yet. He left this world with the body of a 5 years and the spirit of an Ascended Master ❤

With Much Love & Absolute Compassion

360 Days of Gratitude (Day 41) The “T” in SMART- Timing for Success

Timing for Success

We move toward success when we open our hearts, minds & spirits. We expand the ways that we spend our time which is another milestone on our road to success. Time is our most precious jewel, when you come to realize that…when you live each moment to its fullest, your treasure chest over flows with abundance.

Give yourself the gift of time. Restful time…connecting time…creative time…time to focus and time to play. When you do every day will become timeless. That is the measure of success!

Maya Angelou said that, “All great achievements require time.”

Remember that every moment that we have here on earth is sacred.

T– Is for Time Limits

Set a time to act and a time for results to come to you. Remember that you don’t want to become Time’s slave. In a fully awakened state our days become timeless. You are expanded and free without constraints. It seems bizarre but the road to the timeless is through time. This is only because of how our brains process experience. One event at a time in a straight line. In reality, your True Self is timeless. You are not bound by time. But all living things have a natural rhythm.

When you find your rightful time…everything you need for success unfolds naturally.

In practical terms we are asking that you approach time as something that you can master.

This is the best model that we have heard of that is a tool to that mastery.

There are according to Dr. Daniel Siegel a psychologist said that these are the best ways of spending your time. You should spend each day with each of these ways to utilize your time.

They are…

  • Sleep time
  • Physical time
  • Focus time
  • Time In
  • Time out
  • Play time
  • Connecting time

This gives you a way to master time instead of letting it slip away from you.

When you begin your day, pay attention to all 7 departments of time. Remember that they nurture every aspect of you and your growth

  • Sleep time– Did you get a full night of restful sleep?
  • Physical time– Did you take time to move and let your body be active?
  • Focus time– Where you alone so you could focus on what matters to you?
  • Time in– Did you set aside a few moments for prayer, meditation and self-reflection?
  • Time out– What time did you set aside to just be in the moment resting in you existence?
  • Play time– Did you give yourself time to have fun in a carefree mood?
  • Connecting time– Was there intimate connecting time between you and the ones you love and cherish?

These aren’t just components of a well-planned day, they optimize different areas of the brain which lead to expanded awareness and a sense of fulfillment.

This with the timeframes that you utilize for creating your dreams and the action steps you take, you will guarantee that you are a success. Remember it is all about living a well-rounded life! You must make time for all the aspects of your life and in doing so, you live a life of no regrets.

When you live a well-rounded life it gives you more reasons to be grateful and in turn the Universe will expand your path to success. Living in gratitude for each and every moment of your day is the path!

Thank you for joining me on this journey of discovery and learning to be SMART on our own personal road to success. Remember that it is an interconnected journey and we all have a part in each other’s path. We are one energy, living our lives with love, passion, courage and in search of knowledge!

We are all here to help each other

Use this thought to center you as you go along your day and way…

I allow the flow of time to carry me forward.

Special thanks to Deepak Chopra and Oprah for this path to enlightenment. Please join them on their 21 day Meditation on Success.

360 Days of Gratitude (Day 22) The Power of Belief

Believe in yourself

I AM MY DREAMS

I am so grateful for this powerful day in my life…all my dreams are my reality.

I finally got home yesterday after a world wind of manifestations.  The conference was a complete success and I was blessed by the Universe with absolute kismet.  This is my path and my destiny…my Personal Legend and I am grateful for the unfolding.

This conference taught me so many things about manifestation and going with the flow of life.  I went into this conference with the intention of creating wealth for all that I was with, but especially for myself.  My intention was to meet like-minded people that would help me in creating a workshop that could help people create abundance.  I am a teacher…this is my gift.

I learned that I am loved so much that people are naturally attracted to me and always remember me!!!  Even before the conference began people were coming up to me and telling me how happy they were to see me again.  One lady even said, “Girl I have missed you and your contagious energy!  Now we are going to have some fun!”  What a catalyst of positive energy!  This only confirmed that I am on the right path and that my dreams have already materialized!

I had a conversation with the keynote speaker of the conference, Daymond John of Shark Tank and I asked for his advice in marketing.  He asked me what I am doing and I told I am a Life Coach and putting together a workshop to help people find true balance.  He looked at me, paused and said, “You are going to be very successful!”  I smiled and thanked him for the compliment and took his words to heart for they are a prophesy!  I asked him, “Well how do you know that?”  He answered, “Because you believe in your passion”.  I smiled so big it filled the room! I claimed it and said, “I’m going to be your competition someday!” He smiled in agreement and I left.

From that moment on there was no stopping me! 

In that day, I made over 20 new connections of people that would definitely be interested in doing coaching and learning more about creating more balance, passion, love and abundance in their lives.  I met business people with like mind that would barter services for coaching.  I met people that absolutely inspired me with their stories of their successes that showed me that all I have to do is believe that I already have this.  It already is mine.  All I have to do is carry this energy forward and spread this love where ever I go! Did I mention that I was at a Contractor Conference?

It doesn’t matter where you are…If you have faith and belief in your vision, the Universe will meet you!!!

I have found (for me)  that if I want to create abundance for myself, I need to share it where ever I go.  It is in the giving that we  receive.  When the Universe see’s  that you are most passionate (the highest energy vibration) about giving then the Universe will give you more to give!

If God gives you a vision, He will give you the provision!

We must also remember that in order to give you must receive.  Sometimes that is a hard thing to do unless you have so much love for yourself that you realize that this is the cycle.  It is a Universal truth. Life is not linear it is cyclical.

As the seasons of our lives change so must we.  We need to release that which does not serve us in order to receive the new abundance.  It is in cleaning out our own Spiritual Closet, that we truly find our path and our own potential to our greatness.

We are all here for a purpose.  We are all here to love and be loved.  We are all here to create our own trails that eventually will become the paths of the next generations.  We are all here to show the world how absolutely abundant and connected we truly are.  But most importantly…how we all are together on this beautiful green planet together as One.

Remember that the signs are all around you!  Just open your eyes, take a deep breath and receive their message.  Allow the Light of Love to dance with you through the seasons of your beautiful life.

Believe in yourself!  Make a difference…love, starting with yourself!

Remember all the knowledge and power is already within us NOW

This is going to be the best day ever!  I am Divinely Blessed and Grateful for all my followers! You make my life sing, dance and create!  I am pure potentiality and the possibilities are INFINITE!  Thank You! Thank You! THANK YOU!!!!

SKYRIDR

I leave you with a message from the Universe…

Go way out.

Think beyond your presents dreams,

to the dreams you will have once they’ve already

come true.  And when you can clearly see

how confident you will walk

and how proud you will feel,

start walking and feeling like that today.

360 Days of Gratitude ( Day 20 ) Happy World Love Day

IMG_0316

A dream you dream alone is just a dream. 

A dream you dream together is a reality.

~John Lennon

Happy Valentines Day everyone!!!!  I have decided to rename this day to World Love Day!!! I am so grateful for this day of love, peace, happiness and eternal passion!!!!

I have been getting energized by the music of the late greats Bob Marley and John Lennon.  They are channeling such love and desire for the whole world to feel.  Their desire for love peace and harmony for all of human kind started this whole love fest/new age consciousness that my generation began on.

The songs, “One Love” and “Imagine”, make me just meditate into another plane of existence.

Let’s get together and be alright!!!!  The words are simple, but hold the utmost power…the power of world wide love.  I don’t know why we don’t already have this reality, but it’s coming soon I can feel it and I know that I am willing to do my part to make sure that I leave this world a little better for my daughter and all of our kids.  We are the beauty and the change…we just need to believe.

I BELIEVE! Can I get an AMEN?

Imagine all the people living life in peace!!!!!!  How fantabulous this feels!  I wrap this feeling around me life a warm comfy blanket with pink furry slippers!!!  This is delicious!!!! Comfortable, satisfied, happy, undulating with unbridled passion that stirs my very soul!!!!  I love this feeling…sometimes it makes me feel like I can fly  on the breezes of pure delight!

360 Days of Gratitude (Day 19) The Journey of Frogs

The Path

The path to success leaves clues. It is paved with good intentions…

But we must remember that it is not in the achievement itself , but the journey along the way.

I have found that in my every success there have been failures along the way that have given me clues or choices.  Which way should I traverse this road of desire and what will it take to attain my goal.

I have always done sales through out my life.  What’s that saying, “Where there is a will, there is a way.” I have always found a way, even at a young age.  I remember that as a very young girl I started in my entrepreneurial ways.

When I was 6 years old I received 25 cents per week for allowance.  Back in the 60’s this could buy (believe it or not) a couple of ice creams from the Ice Cream Man. But in the summertime, I wanted more than a couple…I wanted more!  So I asked my mom if I could have more money and she said that was all I could get for allowance, that I would have to live with it.  So I decided that I would have to figure out a way to get more money.

Being the tomboy that I was then and am today I sized up my environment (my neighborhood) to see what I could do.  I couldn’t deliver papers because I was too young or babysit because I was being babysat.  Looking at my neighborhood, I saw all the beautiful gardens and had an epiphany.

There are all these beautiful gardens and they all have bugs!  What can I offer my neighbors to help them with their bugs and it came to me…FROGS! Frogs eat bugs, frogs are free if you find them and catch them…I will sell them frogs!  Don’t laugh!!!!  I did sell them frogs!

So I went out to the pond with a bucket and spent the day catching frogs. I was so excited I caught 10 big ole frogs.  I was muddy and dirty with mud in my pigtails, but I walked door to door to sell my frogs.

I can only imagine how funny it was to my neighbors to see this muddy little girl asking…

…Do you want to buy a frog?  It will eat the bugs in your garden!  It’s only 25 cents.  Each of my 10 frogs were sold that day and I had enough money for the rest of the summer.  Now of course my Mom found out and tried to make me give back the money (which I tried with her by my side) but no one took their quarter back.

Moral to the story…It is better to beg forgiveness than ask permission.

I found out that if I have a dream I have to just go for it and lean into it!

It is through the trial and error that we truly discover what we need to get through to the next level of excellence.

I tell you this silly story to show you how simple it can be and that The Universe will always provide a way, but you must help in the way.

I was clear in my intention!!!!  ICE CREAM MONEY!!!  The epiphany was not me…it was an inspiration.

The definition of inspiration is: a divine influence or action on a person believed to qualify him or her to receive and communicate sacred revelation. In other words…in spirit = Inspiration

So I set a clear intention at the age of 6 and manifested 10 times what I really needed.  Back then $2.50 was like hitting the lottery for a 6 year old.  I trusted my inspiration and didn’t even think about the “what if’s”.  I didn’t even know there was anything to worry about.  I just knew that in my heart that the money was already mine… and it was!

So I am telling you this story to make a point.  If you keep your mind clear and clean out all the mess that clutters your mind you too can manifest like a 6 year old.  Focus and intention are the key ingredients…but ya can’t cook if you have a messy kitchen.

Now you have to ask yourself the big questions…

WHAT DO I WANT?

WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO ACHEIVE IT?

WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE WHEN I HAVE IT IN MY HOT LITTLE HANDS?

WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE THIS FUN AND ENJOY THE RIDE?

Manifestation is part intention and part focus.  In order to focus you must first clean your Spiritual Closet in order to make room for your new intentions.  That is part of the grid work you need to do!  So what is “grid work”?

Grid work is separating the different aspects of your life.  It is taking one aspect at a time like, health, finances, love, creativity, work, family or life style and breaking it down to the ridiculous.  When I say breaking it down to the ridiculous and creating daily achievable goals.

Example: Money

What would it take for me to make $100,000 per year.  Well in the ridiculous we would say…

$100,000/12=$8333.33 per month /4=$2083.33 per week/5=$416.66 per day

WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO MANIFEST $417 PER DAY?

This is a question that we can dive into, because it will depend on what you love doing!!!

FYI…This is based on a 48 week year leaving 4 weeks of…VACATION TIME…HELLO!!!

Now this is a basic formula…the number is up to you but you get the jest of it!!

This is totally do-able if you truly want to manifest it!!!

I mean if a six year old in the sixties can manifest a summertime’s supply of ICE CREAM in one day…

What can you do?

Manifest Monday

I am in the midst of manifestation. 

Today is a day of focus. 

In order for me to do this…I must manifest it, feel it, taste it, imagining it happening, be grateful for it to happen to me and because of it be the example for all those who care to follow in my footsteps and help them along the way. 

It is a calling…a deep seeded desire that sends me into this direction.  I am happiest when I am creating love.  Be it through the written word, a painting, a photo created from the Eye of God.  It could just be that unexpected smile I give to a stranger. 

You never know when you are the messenger of love….but being in a constant state of love keeps you prepared to shine the light of love on yourself and others as well.

In this moment, I am manifesting love…if only for myself it is created and all is well…in this moment.

Acknowledge Yourself

Where will your map take you?

What do I acknowledge about myself today?

I am much stronger than I thought I was…I have the strength to suffer and to learn. I am able to accomplish my goals and to be creative. I am a loving, giving person and I am able to forgive, even when I thought I could not.

I am able to love unconditionally. To give all of myself, as I watch others do the same.
I am my shadow. I am learning that everyday from my shadow. She has gifts I need to be wise. Her fear is my courage. I am now able to see the difference and we help each other.

Do I fear?  Yes…as we all do, but each day I become stronger as we face them together. Do I get angry? Yes! But I recognize this as my shadow…I acknowledge her as myself and I pray to be kinder and gentler.

I am not always perfect, but I am good enough for today.

Am I loveable? Yes! I am that strong shoulder that my friends and family can lean on and depend on in their times of their needs and I know I have that in return.

I know that I am blessed! I see it in every moment, in every miracle, in every right place at the right time…I see angels and God smiling at me!

For all these traits that I possess, for all the missteps I have taken, for all the choices that I have made (good, bad or indifferent), I have created this wonderful map that I call life.

I have lived and continue to live a magical life!

It is a beautiful story and with it are many blessings, many lessons and most importantly many adventures.

We all have a choice, a map, a life that is seen by each and every one of us.

How do you choose to view yours?
