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 40) The R in SMART-Record your Progress

 

“Build this day on a foundation of pleasant thoughts. Never fret at any imperfections that you fear may impede your progress. Remind yourself, as often as necessary, that you are a creature of God and have the power to achieve any dream by lifting up your thoughts. You can fly when you decide that you can. Never consider yourself defeated again. Let the vision in your heart be in your life’s blueprint. Smile!”

Og Mandino

R- Record your Progress- Aligning the Inner with the Outer

When you align your internal & your external realities, as we learned yesterday, you open the door for you to become even wider and to create more possibilities in your life.

Today we are getting tuned in, taped in and totally turned on to the messages from Source. Remember that we are that Divine Spark of Source and within that spark lies all the knowledge that we need to take it to the next level of knowledge and understanding.

When we learn to listen and understand the messages that our true self is telling us, we learn to trust our true self and our intuition. Our intuition guides us to a place where growth happens. That growth is the spark that creates the fire of success.

Listening to your life and your intuition really does create success.

We all enjoy the success when we heed our inner voice and listen to its council. It can be a whisper or a full on AHA moment. When we trust our inner voice it guides us to a place where the magic & growth happens.

Find your silent place where you can naturally hear your inner voice and do it in total serenity & focus. Meditation is the first step in learning about who you are and where you desire to be.

The R in Record your Progress stands for, keeping a record of where you started on your journey.

The P for progress stands for, where you want to go and how you expect to grow every day.

In nature, this is when plants point in the direction of the sun. There is no need for self-awareness as this process is mechanical. Inner growth is the opposite. It is not a mechanical process like losing your baby teeth. Inner growth requires feedback from the self.

When you are evolving every day you can see what messages your True Self is telling you. When you write these messages down and reflect on them, you are recording your everyday events, but truly you are recording a stronger connection with your True Self and your connection to Source.

These are the kind of messages that help you to grow and become stronger. This is when you feel safe and connected with not only yourself but with the Divine within you. This gives you purpose and value to yourself.

You then come to the realization that you are important and your life has value to not only yourself but to the collective. You are now an inspiration to all that know and love you.

Your body then becomes full of energy and vitality. You are fulfilled by just being you. You come to the realization that you love and are loved. You then start to realize when you start to love yourself, you hold love for others and show compassion and empathy for others as well. It starts to dawn on you that this is a school of life that you are learning with everyone. We are your classmates!

When this hit you all of a sudden you feel the presence of Source and it is awe-inspiring. You realize that we are all connected and the majesty of nature fills you with an amazing passion for life.

Remember that we all have these moments of higher consciousness…but few acknowledge their presence. These moment of epiphanies or AHA moments can blow away like the leaves in the wind, so you must be present in the moment to recognize them and the importance they hold in your life.

If you don’t pay attention and value them and make them part of who you are and where you are going you lose the magical part of your existence.

Remember that magic is everywhere if you choose to embrace it.

 Source is ALWAYS trying to get your attention so TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOUR CONNECTION.o

A record of your inner growth is a success as it unfolds in the here and now.

  • Make a plan of where you want to create abundance in your life (Worksheet)
  • Keep a journal of your progress. Remember that it is all about connecting with your inner voice and acknowledging how it feels when you are in the moment. Write it down!
  • Visualize having this growth with you in this moment. How does it feel, taste, smell, and look like?
  • Stay in the moment by focusing on staying centered. Meditate everyday! It is your time with Source and your True Self
  • Change you language. Start focusing on positive statements. You are what you say, so what are you saying about yourself. If it is negative…ask yourself why am I saying this and how can I say it better so that I am happy with my words
  • Record all the things you are grateful for in your progress. Source loves to give you what you are ask for…whatever that may be.
  • Be realistic and yet dream of what it would take to make it better (One day at a time)
  • Ask yourself better questions. Instead of asking the “how” questions, ask “what” questions. Example-How am I ever going to get more money? Ask instead- What would it take to bring more money me and make the process fun? Feel the difference? When you ask “what” questions you are telling your brain, spirit and Source to give you the answer, “how” questions leave feeling victimized and brings lower energies to you.
  • Take your goals to the next level. If you are wanting to make 50K this year, create the goal of 100k. The only thing worse than missing a goal that is too high, is achieving a goal that is too low.
  • Break your goals down to small increments so that you can chart your progress daily. If you want to lose 50lbs, you figure out how long will it take for me to lose 50 lbs and what do I have to do each day to achieve this goal. You then figure all the ingredients it will take to lose this weight.
  • Don’t forget the AHA moments. These are the little things that catch your eye bring you to the epiphany that can change everything. It will happen…It always does! The Universe is always trying to catch your eye and give you more than you can imagine. Stay present and in the moment

Well I hope that this inspires you today!!!! I am grateful for you following me! Please comment! I love hearing inspiration from you to me!!! We are all in this crazy world together and abundance is here for all of us!!!

The worksheet that I am offering at no cost will guide you on what you need to do to allow you to measure your progress. Be specific and use this sheet on one goal at a time. Break it down to small steps so you can measure your progress. There’s nothing better than to check something off your list!!! If you don’t have the worksheet then just request a copy!

A special thanks to Deepak Chopra & Oprah for these wonderful lessons. I am grateful to be in alignment for this fabulous unfolding.

360 Days of Gratitude (Day 39) The “A” in SMART-Alignment

Whoever wants constant success in what they do must change their conduct with the times.

~Machiavelli

A – Agreement with your inner self and those around you.

Aligning inner self with outer reality.

Aligning our self to what matters. When you embrace the inner self with the outer reality, your spirit thrives! When you embrace that alignment you can’t help but thrive and flourish! This is a match between inner and outer reality.

Every success involves being in the right place at the right time to fill a need.

When you start to build your dream, you start by taking the practical steps necessary, but you must be in agreement with your inner self about what is happening around your outer world.

When you feel stressed out or out of alignment your inner self will feel blocked. If your outer self feels something is wrong for you, you feel tension, stress and conflict. Making the two worlds mesh means you have made an agreement.

Pay attention to your gut feeling! It’s is your spirit telling you to pause and listen because that is how you must go back to center and re-chart your course. Realign what you are feeling inside and what you want to materialize around you. It is the true essence of manifestation.

When the inside and the outside are in alignment you are able to, all of a sudden, have clarity and you become stronger in the energy of your creation. Then you become more powerful!! When inner harmony leads to outer harmony your manifestations come to life! Remember that you receive what you reflect and that alignment leads to true success.

This one agreement means more than any other agreement. As you expand your awareness through meditation you will become more tuned in, taped in and totally turned on to your life. As you expand your awareness you become a match to both your inner and outer selves.

Follow these steps and you will always find alignment

  • Make decisions when you feel centered and calm
  • Don’t make decisions when you are in discomfort and feeling distressed
  • Never act when you are feeling uncertain
  • Be patient and breathe through the time until you are centered and feel good about your decision making
  • If others around you feel discomfort & don’t agree, heed this as a warning that you are not in agreement with your outer reality
  • Live with your choices on the inside for a day or two before you tell anyone else
  • Show others that you do need and desire their council and advice
  • Don’t pretend to know everything
  • Seek advice
  • Develop an atmosphere of sharing & mutual support for one another
  • Trust that this agreement is the source of inner & outer harmony

I leave you with this centering thought

My inner and out worlds mesh together perfectly

This was today’s advice from Deepak Chopra and his 21 Day Meditation

Success is what you make it on the inside and the outer world. It is your choice how you live your life.

Create a vision and never let the environment, other people’s beliefs, or the limits of what has been done in the past shape your decisions. Ignore conventional wisdom

~Tony Robbins

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.

~The Universe

Namaste

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!

You may say…”I’m a dreamer…but I’m not the only one!”

I am totally alive and grateful for this day!!! There is so much passion associated with WORLD LOVE DAY! Today is a day to live your passions times Infinity!!!

Live in your passions, dance in your passions, dream and create in your passion, ….

…Be the passion that you want to see in the world!

Today is a day we should all be living in our heart space together as one and as we do, we are all making a difference in creating the peace, love and understanding that we all know as truth. For love is truth.

Remember that we are never alone and that the world and the Universe are conspiring with you to create your wildest dreams come true!

May you live this and each day with passion.  I’ve included some tunes to groove by!!!  These are the artists that are “Playing for Change.”  It is an international group of artists that believe as I do that we can all make a difference.  Remember today is a new day so make a difference and spread love and joy…Start with a smile and watch it roll!!!!

Paying Love Forward

KICK BACK AND CHILL YA’LL

IMAGINE

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.
