During the month of November many of us give thanks for the fun stuff, but do we give thanks for our challenges as well?
Watch the attached video on how to increase your abundance regardless of your current situation.
It’s important to have an “Attitude of Gratitude” no matter what is going on in our lives.
For example, when I was a sign language interpreter, I broke my hand and had to be out of work for over a month.
I went from pity and worry to an “Attitude of Gratitude” and realized how I can be thankful for my hand.
I became appreciative on how easy it was to wash my hair or sign my name. There were so many things I took for granted before my hand was damaged.
In those moments of your life that don’t feel so great, change it to an “Attitude of Gratitude” and be thankful for those harsh moments.
I would love to challenge you to be thankful of 10 situations in your life that did not feel great at the time,...
There has been a lot of tension in our country over the past few months because of the election.
I would like to give you some encouraging words, so we may come together again and feel peace.
I believe in UNITY. This means are all ONE.
We are all connected from the same energy regardless of which country we are from or which culture we are a member.
In order to come to a more peaceful place, we can pray/meditate for the “HIGHEST GOOD FOR ALL.”
This is letting go of the outcome and allowing our Higher Power to make the best decision for all human kind.
Sometimes we don’t like the outcome, but eventually we know it is for our greatest good.
Today, I would love to encourage you to focus on the peace you would like to see in our country and trust that the Universe has our best interests in mind.
Living with guilt can destroy our lives.
Watch the attached video to learn how to let go of guilt and bring joy back into your life.
“The psychology of guilt is rooted in self-judgement.
It is the sense that we have done something wrong.
It is anger turned inward arising when we violate our belief system”
(from the book Life Lessons by Elizabeth Kubler Ross & David Kessler)
It is okay to feel guilty if you know internally you have done something wrong
because it keeps us guided on a better path.
BUT remaining in guilt and staying with the thoughts of I am not worthy is not good for us.
When you do feel guilty, make the commitment to make a different choice the next time and then FORGIVE YOURSELF.
You must move on and out of that negativity, so you can love yourself as others
We were given a soul when we came to this earth to live and love and that same soul will go with us when we die.
This video has a beautiful excerpt from the book Life Lessons by Elizabeth Kubler Ross & David Kessler to help us contemplate who we really are.
“You undoubtedly have faults, but they are not you.
You may have a disease, but you are not your diagnosis.
You may be rich, but you are not your credit rating.
You’re not your resume, your neighborhood, your grades, your mistakes, your body,
your roles or your titles.
All these things are not yours because they are changeable.
There is a part of you that is undefinable and changeless.
Who you are is eternal and that will never change.”
When you consider today, “Who am I?” Contemplate if you are living by your title and your salary, or are you living by your soul and love?
Something to think about.
There is NO FAILURE unless it stops you from continuing forward. When we feel like it is failure, this is actually a message saying, “There is a BETTER way to do this!”
Watch the attached video to learn more and make sure to see it through to the end for a special prayer that will help when making a tough decision of whether to move on.
If something does come up that feels like a failure, be sure to RESPOND and not react.
Reacting is saying or doing something without thinking it through first. When this happens there is often regret because the action cannot be retracted.
Responding is taking a deep breath and talking to your Higher Power to really think through what you would like to say or do.
You get to take as long as you want to respond whether it be 2 seconds, 2 days, 2 weeks or 2 months. You DECIDE.
If you are struggling with your response, you can use the prayer of discernment:
If this dream is for my higher good, increase my passion for it. If this...
Sometimes we have constrictive thoughts, arguments with other people in our heads, or thoughts of fear and negativity that do not serve us.
Those thoughts are limiting us because they aren't taking us to the higher fulfillment of what we can be
How can we find peace?
First, we recognize the body and if it is feeling constrictive and also the thoughts that we do not like.
Next, we become what is called the “observer self”. This is when we step back and look at ourselves as if we are outside of the situation looking in. You detach emotionally as if you are another person watching what is happening.
You say to yourself, “This is not the state I want to be in. I want to have a peaceful state of mind.”
Again, we recognize how our body feels and notice what's happening with our mind. You then decide how you would prefer to feel and change your thoughts.
So today, I want to encourage you to become an “observer...
