Bumps Are Inevitable

Quite some time ago, one of my oldest, but most comfortable pair of jeans got snagged. I must have rubbed up against something sharp unknowingly, which pulled a thread and caused a small snag. It was no big deal really, just one little thread, not even sticking out very far, but I still noticed it. I tried pulling the thread through to the inside of the jeans, so the default wouldn't be visible from the outside. Chances are, no one would have ever noticed it from that point forward. No one except me, that is!

The Finishing Touch of Harmony




A melody can be beautiful on its own and requiring of nothing further to substantiate its value. There is, however, that perfect harmony. It doesn't change the music, but adds tremendous depth and awe that neither alone could inspire. It's the finishing touch on an already complete piece of work. So is the addition of a soul mate to an awakened spirit!

The Ups and Downs of Being Vulnerable

Why is it that so many perceive vulnerability as automatically resulting in a negative or painful outcome? Yes, we all have past pain that sends our conscious minds into protective mode, in a valiant effort to protect us from experiencing pain in the future. Human nature right? We default to control tactics & limiting beliefs to keep us in safe, known waters, so we don't have to experience the discomfort of not knowing, & potentially exposing ourselves to hurting again. All these fear-based behaviors not only dramatically increase our stress & anxiety levels, but they actually prevent us from living vibrant, fulfilling lives!

Living In The Present

April 15, 2013 

Time is a paradox, stretching between a past and a future that have no reality except in our own minds. The idea of time is a convention of thought and language, a social agreement. Here is the deeper truth: We have only this moment. ~ Dan Millman 

We have to learn to live in the moment. I have often heard another quote that says, “To live in the past leads to depression, to live in the future causes anxiety, to live in the moment is bliss.” This is quite true. All we have is now, this very moment in time.

The Cost Of Pleasing Others: Too High A Price For Me!

Written 04/05/2013

I saw the picture below and it spoke to me. Oh that I would have learned this at an earlier age, although in hind sight, those lessons have made me who I am today, and therefore I suppose were necessary! 

I have spent the majority of my life trying to please others in every aspect, for fear I would otherwise be rejected and end up alone. I honestly had no idea who I was, what I truly thought and what my core beliefs were, and I was petrified to explore those depths. What if I was identified as different, far outside the boundaries of normative, rational thinking?

Optimism

Written 11/28/2012

Even when everyone around me is screaming that my ship is sinking, I never give up! I believe that's how Einstein, Bell, Newton, Tesla and many others accomplished what they did. They failed often, but their tenacity and optimism led them to great accomplishments. I choose optimism! 

Love and Light,

Making Right Choices

Posted on 11/9/2012

To make the right choices in life, you have to get in touch with your soul. To do this, you need to experience solitude, which most people are afraid of, because in the silence you hear the truth and know the solutions. - Deepak Chopra

This is a profound truth! One thing I know to be true... it is in these quiet times we find ourselves, our paths and purposes are revealed, and our vibrational frequency is heightened. The more time you spend in this state, the faster you develop spiritually and gain the wisdom and discernment necessary to live your soul purpose.

Lessons From History

Written 8/18/2012

Today on my FB page, I made a post that said, "I have just had the wind knocked out of my sails, but as I always say, this too shall pass and somehow, I will get by and be better for it! The question I have to keep asking is why I am attracting this kind of stuff into my life and what lessons have I not yet learned that need to be understood? Hmmmmm." 

The point in this post was not complaining, or posturing in a woe-is-me frame of mind, playing the victim. The point of the post was reflective and recognizing that there are things I have yet to learn, as  some of these scenarios have happened numerous times.

Speaking Your Heart Is Critical For Health

Written 8/6/2012

Over the last few years, one thing I have seen consistently wreck relationships has been a lack of communication. There are so many different reasons we choose to bottle our feelings and not tell others what we are thinking. Sometimes it’s just flat out pride! Sometimes we are embarrassed that the other party might not agree with our viewpoint. Other times we are afraid of rejection and hurt, if the other person turns away from us based on what has been spoken. So often we just don’t like to create chaos, drama or confrontation, so it can appear so much easier to just hold our tongue and move on.

Letting Go Of Expectation

Written on 8/6/2012

There are so many topics swimming around in my head tonight, I am struggling to determine which to write about. It seems this past week, the lessons have been fast and furious! So much so that I’m still in the process of chewing and digesting all that has transpired. 

This week has been all about LETTING GO! Letting go of the past, letting go of pain, letting go of worry, and tonight, I think I am stopping on the topic of letting go of expectation. 

I found myself very disappointed last night.

Carrying The Weight Of The World... By Choice

Written 8/6/2012

Last night was an interesting night! On many Wednesday’s, I serve as a volunteer Reiki provider at a Caring Center here in Memphis. We provide Reiki treatments to those who are in need that might not otherwise be able to afford getting services from a private practitioner. It’s a wonderful opportunity for me to practice my Reiki and also give back to the community. 

There seemed to be an overall theme last night with many I gave Reiki. There was this strong sense they were very overwhelmed.

Can You Really Be Happy 100% Of The Time?

Written 8/6/2012

I watched a movie called Love Happens the other night, with Aaron Eckhard and Jennifer Anniston! The premise of the movie was basically a man who was one of these high dollar self-help gurus who had lost his wife in a car accident 3 years prior, then wrote a book and started teaching seminars on how to overcome grief and be A-OK with you life! He coached others on moving past their grief and finding their happiness again, which he did in fact seem to be rather good at doing. He was able to remind people of their purpose and their worth, in spite of their loss, and nudge them to begin moving forward again and healing.

Stop Fighting, Acknowledge and Release

Written 8/6/2011

And here’s the deal……..I’m learning it’s ok to have a not so great day! It’s ok to get angry, it’s ok to be sad, it’s ok to be hurt, it’s ok to be ANYTHING. Accepting where we are and not fighting against it is what also allows us to release it. It doesn’t make us week, or negative, or a bad person! Have a bad day? Don’t fight it. I didn’t say to give into it either though and go around on a rampage. Acknowledge it, feel and be ok with it, then let it go and move on with your day!

The Journey From Chaos To Clarity

Written 8/6/2012

We are so much more than the sum of what we appear to be and what we hope to become.There is plan and purpose far beyond what our finite understanding can fathom.Though we long to meet those dreams, we know our failures also have a part in that process.We are intimately aware of who we’ve been in the past, yet we choose to believe and blindly strive for so much more. We grasp for purpose, not just within our own life, but one impacting and touching the lives of others. We search for depth and meaning to understand all the seemingly futile actions we see.

A Daily Dose Of Necessity

Written 12/22/2011

I ran across a quote today that got me thinking. The quote said, “People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing – that's why we recommend it daily. ~ Zig Ziglar” 

This is a much more profound statement than it may seem on the surface. One of the reasons most people fail in changing their lives is they do something for a short period of time and when they don't see the immediate results they expect, THEY STOP! Consistency and persistence are two of the single most important characteristics in succeeding.

Guilt vs. Conviction... Do You Recognize The Difference?

Written 12/19/2011

We are all products of our environment and our upbringing plays an enormous role in how we interpret and respond to situations in our lives, physically, emotionally and spiritually. But what about how we respond to ourselves? Sometimes we can be our own worst enemies waging war in that battlefield of our mind. Guilt and conviction are two areas that are often misinterpreted and can turn into a whipping post of sorts, if we are not able to process through and resolve the issues at hand, as well as recognize the origin of the emotions.

The Victim Mentality

Written 12/12/2011

Have you ever run across people who just seem to constantly be victims? They have the most horrific series of events happen in their lives, none of which they claim any responsibility for, yet day after day there's a new drama at hand that seems to be as devastating as the last. They seem to long to be happy and find a way to change things, yet almost every conversation is a constant barrage of complaining about how life has been utterly unfair to them. Before they are able to recover from the last debilitating scenario, there's a new one afoot, waiting to crash down upon them.

Everyone Has Doubt... Don't They?

Written 12/11/2011

I often wondered how it was possible to stay positive all the time and never have doubts. I would listen to motivational speakers talk, read self-help books, and research all the materials I could find on being positive, yet those pesky doubts were always looming just around the bend. 

What I am learning to recognize is that EVERYONE has negative thoughts. Anyone who says they do not is a liar! The main difference between those of us successfully adopting a positive outlook and the others is that we do not allow those thoughts to remain!

Living In The Present

Written 11/30/2011

One of the most difficult concepts for me to understand when I started this journey was that of living in the present. I never truly understood what that really meant. I mean, I get the whole idea of focusing on the now, but with so much baggage left over from the past and so many things looming in the near future, was it really possible to keep my thoughts focused on the now and not wander into the realm of hurt and anxiety? The answer is YES, it is possible, though it takes proactive intention and being mindful of the circumstances at hand.
