universe“Forward,
we must always
move forward;
otherwise
what will
become of us?”
#MikeNichols

Row, Row, Row Your Boat

(unknown) stream

Translation  …because it is important to remember.

 

“row, row, row your boat”

Keep going.  Consistent commitment focusing on inspirational goals beget progress.

Your responsibility is taking care of your boat (YOU).

“gently down the stream”

Be gentle and kind with yourself and others.  Love.  Love.  Love.

Allow it to be easy.  Go with the flow.  Let go.

“merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily”

Celebrate!  Create!  Dance!  Enjoy!  Flirt!  Fly!  Give!  Have fun!  Jump!  Laugh!  Play!  Share!

“life is but a dream”

The body responds to the brain, and the brain believes as true whatever it thinks, both dreams, and reality.

Everything began as a Dream in The Creator’s Mind.  You have The Creator’s Mind.  Expand.  Grow.  Nourish.  Nurture.  Learn.  Receive.  Stretch.

Dream, dream, dream, and dream on.  Dreams remind You of your Divine Purpose while fertilizing your Soul Seeds.  Dreams are spiritual guides, encouraging, supporting, whispering, “Yes, YOU ARE.  Yes, You can.  Yes, You are amazing, brilliant, gorgeous, and talented.  Yes, your miracle is here.  Yes, You are enough.  Yes, You are worthy.  Yes, You are loveable.  Yes, You are BeLoved.

Row, row, row your boat.

Twinkle, Twinkle SuperStars!

The Power of Transition

Cherish your visions; cherish your ideals; cherish the music that stirs in your heart,
the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts,
for out of them will grow delightful conditions, all heavenly environment;
of these if you but remain true to them, your world will at last be built.
~ James Allen ~

I invite You to claim the next thirty minutes for yourself.  Notify family and roommates that You are on a mini-vacation for the next thirty minutes.  Turn off the phone, the television, and the like.  Breathe deeply, feel your body, and be present.  Be grateful.  Appreciate You.  All is quiet.  All is still.  All is well.  You are abundant, favored, healthy, joyful, prosperous, safe, and well.  Send all your thoughts, every single one, to a tropical island, and let yourself simply be.  Know You are Love(d), wholly and completely, exactly as You here and now.

I move and breathe and have my being in God.
~ Oprah Winfrey ~

Settle in.  Consume a large glass of clean, clear water.  Give yourself a deluxe bath/shower complete with your favorite soaps and lotions.  Wash away your cares, and You sing to yourself.  Slip into your most comfortable lounging clothes.  Breathe.  Keep breathing.  Play soothing music.  Light a scented candle, and enjoy delicious aroma filling your space.  Dim the lights to a festive glow.  Light a fire in the fireplace (or imagine one).  Make your favorite warm beverage, coffee, cocoa, eggnog, tea, and the like.  Slip into a cozy chair.  Wrap yourself in a soft blanket.  Imagine You in your ideal place, your paradise, whether it be a castle, swanky penthouse, a ranch, a rustic cabin in the woods, an exotic private island, and the like.  This is your moment.

        Dorothy: Oh, will you help me? Can you help me?
        Glinda: You don’t need to be helped any longer.
        You’ve always had the power to go back to Kansas.
        Dorothy: I have?
        Scarecrow: Then why didn’t you tell her before?
        Glinda: Because she wouldn’t have believed me. She had to learn it for herself.

~ The Wizard of Oz ~

Today’s message is important because it is especially for You and holds tools to help You successfully move forward.  The wisdom for which You have been yearning is here.  The change You have been desiring is here.  The answer for which You have been praying is here.  That which You have been seeking has been inside You all along and is revealed by your willingness to open the door and listen to the Divine Voice in your heart.  The life You dream of having and who You dream of being are through the door.  Accompany me, and meet your true self, a clever, fabulous, gorgeous, intelligent, powerful person making the world better simply by “being”.  Are You ready?  Here and now is your moment.

Sometimes it’s the smallest decisions that can change your life forever.
~ Keri Russell ~

The universe and the world were created in a very orderly, specific fashion.  Energy was organized into distinct forms governed by specific laws.  Every living being serves a beautiful and specific purpose in the circle of life.  Every atom, every cell, every fiber of life is crucial to the success of the universe as a whole, and every life is important and precious.  You, yes, You, are crucial to the entire universe’s operation and why it is imperative You step up and claim your destiny now.  You are God’s/J’s glorious masterpiece.  You, whether You feel it or not, willing to accept it or not, are divine art.  You simply existing and being contributes to the successful operation of the entire universe.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
~ Marianne Williamson ~

You were created for a special reason, a unique mission implanted as a seed in your heart, a voice defying all logic and reason whispering, “Yes, You are.  Yes, You can.”  Your heart seed is your purpose for being here and contains the blueprint for You to be perfectly, wonderfully, uniquely You.  The key is, like an apple tree growing and an egg gestating, trusting the seed to bloom perfectly.  You are a rare gem with a razzle dazzle only You bring to the world.  Consider yourself a diamond, and, like the diamond, your shine is revealed by extreme pressure.  You may be experiencing some stress; use it to reveal the very best You.

A real decision is measured by the fact that you have taken new action.
You haven’t truly decided if there is no action.
~ Anthony Robbins ~

You have an immediate opportunity to choose how You perceive what is happening in your life, which ultimately determines your destiny.  Does life happen to You or for You?  Are circumstances obstacles or opportunities?  How You view what happens for You determines your choices, emotions, actions, and results.  You can choose to view pressure as an opportunity for growth, an invitation to clear out the old and welcome the new.  You can refine your character.  You can embrace change.  You can establish new habits and a new standard for living.  You can receive blessings and rest in divine favor.  You can step into your dreams and allow them to become reality.  You can be empowered.

My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline,
and do not lose heart when he rebukes you,
because the Lord disciplines the one he loves.
~ Hebrews 12:5-6 ~

You may feel as though You have taken all You can.  You may feel persecuted.  You may wonder where God/J is, and maybe even ask if He has forgotten Your or is punishing You (which is false).  You may ponder how your life got here and feel it is not working even though You have done everything You can.  You may feel it is not going to get better.  You may even feel like giving up.  You my friend, are in an excellent place.  Why?  You are ready.  You are ripe for change.  You are primed for something new.  You are open to receive, and You are willing to let go.  Surrendering is the key to your freedom and catalyst You have been seeking for change.

Beyond sculptures and symphonies, beyond great works and masterpieces,
is the greater, finer art of creating a conscious life. Genius appears everywhere
…and so magnificently in a life well lived.
~ Karla McLaren ~

2011 is a significant year and guiding You to step into a higher, more powerful, simpler consciousness, a space of mind where You recognize your power of creation and live life by design. The following insights may help You find peace, understand more about the macro-picture, and successfully navigate 2011 while preparing yourself for your stellar future.

What is 2011?

1)  2011 is The Year of Enlightenment and Truth.  Love is the only Truth, and everything else is falling away.  The beliefs and memories hidden in the emotional closet and swept under the mental rug are being brought to Light.  The veil of illusion is being torn to reveal Truth.  The Truth is Love, and Love is You.  You are God’s/J’s BeLoved just as You are in this moment.  Relax and be.

2)  You are a new creation.  (“Anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come; the old has gone, the new is here!” ~ 2 Cor. 5:17.)  Be new, and do new.  Old habits, patterns of being, and ways of operating are void.  Today is the dawn of a new era of awareness, creativity, innovation, and simplicity.

3)  You are a clean, fresh canvas.  Old beliefs are disintegrating as people become so exasperated by the status quo that they are willing to experience something new.  Let go of the meaning You have attached to things.  Forget the past, and start from here and now.

4)  Data collection is complete.  Today is an opportunity to integrate knowledge, and discover areas for expansion and growth.  Recognize and welcome possibilities as the origins for miracles.

5)  Students are the new teachers.  Great instructors, like Oprah Winfrey, are moving into new life phases, creating space for other teachers.  World-changers and leaders, like Steve Jobs, are leaving the planet to pave the way for others leaders.

6)  Authenticity is power.  People are discovering their genuine selves.  False identities found in things of the world are eroding and making way for people to recognize themselves as souls with spirits living in bodies.  Everything with which people identify themselves, including: career, finances, health, home, and relationships, is transforming, offering people the opportunity to experience their true identity in God/J as God’s/J’s BeLoved.

7)  Embrace lessons in the temporary and transitional.  This moment, and these circumstances are ripe with education and training preparing for what is to come.

8)  Be your best with what You have and who You are now.  Be happy now.  Choose wisely.  Create empowering beliefs and habits.  Cultivate yourself.  Learn.  Harvest wisdom.  Live fully your best day today as your actions, beliefs, feelings, and thoughts devise the foundation for your future.

9)  Release and surrender.  Miracles happen through a change in perception.  Let go of your ego’s desire to “do it myself” and to be “right”.  God/J has wonderful plans to prosper You when You cooperate and trust His Way, especially when it does not make sense.

10)  Be still and listen.  The collapse of the old world is a faith opportunity to rest in Grace, walk by Faith, and recognize God/J as the sole source of protection and provision.  Heeding and obeying God’s/J’s instructions reveals blessings and allows divine favor to flow.

11)  Ground yourself in God/J.  God/J is aligning all things for good even when it does not appear as such.  He is providing tools that to sustain and prosper You moving forward.  The devil is working tirelessly to coax people into disbelieve God’s/J’s Promises, which is part of the transition in career, finances, health, home, and relationships.  God/J transforms tests into testimonies when You align with Him.

12)  You are the artisan of your destiny.  Words have power.  You bring about what You speak and think about.  Command things not as they are rather as You desire them to be.  Keep claiming your destiny.

13)  Be kind.  Be kind first to yourself by loving yourself, nurturing yourself, and caring for yourself the way You would care for the person You most Love.  You are filling your cup and can share your overflow with others.

The highest form of wisdom is kindness.
~ The Talmud ~

Stand Up for L☮ve

“I am determined to see things differently means

I am willing to see God everywhere.”

~ A Course in Miracles ~

 

Do You ever wonder why some people live like paupers and others like royalty?  Why do some people have seemingly perfect lives while others appear to struggle to make it through the day?  Is it the lottery of life where random selections makes some born winners and others born losers?  Is it a divine choice where God/J predetermines the lives we have in our human bodies?  Are we all puzzle pieces designed to fit intricately together to form a magnificent tapestry?  Perhaps it is a bit of everything.

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience.

We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”

~ Teilhard de Chardin ~

 

What if we choose our path, our purpose, our destiny in this world?  What if we have an executive meeting while still in our spiritual state in which we collaborate with God/J for our journey on earth?  What if, prior to our arrival, we share with God/J our objectives for lessons we would like to learn that can only be experienced through a human body?  What if our demography, physicality, and relationships are all constructed to help us understand that which we most desire to learn?  What if life is happen for us rather than to us?

“Life is simple. Everything happens for you, not to you.

Everything happens at exactly the right moment,

neither too soon nor too late.”

~ Byron Katie ~

 

Many wise spiritual gurus advocate that we do indeed choose our path in our physical body.  We make a series of choices that lead us to earth remembering little, if nothing, of our pre-human existence.  God/J provides us with a direct connection to Him via our conscience, intuition, and prayer, so we can dial in when we would like assistance in making appropriate choices.  God/J is a gentleman and only comes in when we ask for help and otherwise leaves us to our own devices.

“God created the law of free will, and God created the law of cause and effect.

And he himself will not violate the law. We need to be thinking less in terms of what God did

and more in terms of whether or not we are following those laws.”

~ Marianne Williamson ~

I used to believe the theory of “free will” of choosing our lives on this earth was absolutely ridiculous.  Who, after all, would choose to live in a third world country scavenging garbage dumps to feed their children versus living in a mansion with gourmet meals prepared by a personal chef?  Who would choose to be abandoned, addicted, or bullied versus being in loving, nurturing relationships?  Who would choose to struggle to survive versus receiving easily and thriving?   The question of choice marinaded in my mind for years, and the answer gestated until I was mature enough to receive it.

“Perfect love drives out fear.”

~ 1 John 4:18 ~

 

Love.  Love is the answer.  Love is always the answer.  Every situation involving suffering is an opportunity to share Love.  It provides an environment for us to engage our very core, recognizing that essentially we are all the same.  We desire to be heard, to be loved, to matter, and to make a difference in the world.  Those who have less, who experience unspeakable things, those whose lives are unrecognizable after being turned upside down and inside out provide us with the opportunity to give the best of ourselves.  Every person, relationship, and situation is an opportunity to Love with the purest of hearts, giving for the joy of it without asking anything in return.

“Well, in Whoville they say that

the Grinch’s small heart

grew three sizes that day.”

~ Dr. Seuss ~

The time has come for us to graduate and put into action what we know while continuing to grow and learn.  Our greatest teachers, like Oprah Winfrey, are confident that we are ready, that we have the appropriate skills and tools to be our best selves in every circumstance.  The time has come for us to fill ourselves to overflow that we might share our blessings with others.  Time to celebrate all of our God-given gifts and talents and to employ them to their fullest capacity in service to others.  Time to lend our angel wings to those whose wings are still growing.  Time to claim our destinies, make our dreams reality, and live our truest purposes, and in so doing, shine our light even more brightly into the world.  Time to exchange our old stories for The Truth, to trade being victims for being victorious.   The time has come for borders to be dissolved, for differences to be set aside, and for us to join together to raise everyone up.  Time to go where there is only a path and leaving a trail.  Time to use every resource to become our best selves. Time to make mature choices and respond versus react.  Time to flex our spiritual muscles by choosing Love as our only response even when ego desires to indulge in separation instead of unity.  Time to stop talking and start being and doing.  Time to be the change we wish to see in the world.  Time to look into one another’s eyes and see a reflection of ourselves, of God, and of Peace.  Time to trade fear for Love so that Love to is the anthem beating in the heart of every living being on the planet.  Time to stand up for Love.

“To love another person is

to see the face of God.”

~ Victor Hugo ~

I am, in my own life, standing up for Love.  Has it brought with it evil attacks?  Yes Does it bring with it many opportunities for growth?  Yes.  Does it require help?  Always.  It requires, for me, a submission of myself to something I know is greater than I can ever be on my own.  I, on my own, am tempted to respond sarcastically or fight fire with fire.    I have found strength in asking God/J to work through me versus doing it on my own.  God/J is not Who He is so often made out to be.  He so desires for us to know He cherishes each of us individually, that each and everyone one of us is His Favorite.  The majestic blessings He has for us sometimes require wiping the slate clean and starting fresh, which requires a whole lot of faith and trust on our part.  We can be and do more in direct proportion to our willingness to open a space inside ourselves and submit to God’s Will for our life.  He always, always, always has grander dreams for us than we have for ourselves.

 

“Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over,

it became a butterfly.”

~ Anonymous ~

 

Diamonds are created by pressure.  Iron is forged by fire.  Pearls are born from the oysters’ irritations.  Stone is polished by the raging waters.  Miracles are born through Love.  We are made stronger and wiser by our life experiences.  The more massive the circumstance, the more magnificent the forthcoming blessing.  The key is, like the caterpillar, trusting the gestation process.  It may seem like the world as You know it is falling away, which may be so.  It may be that your closest relationships dissolve regardless of anything You do.  It may be that precious things in your life are washed away.  Your automobile, career, clothes, house, and relationships are not who You are, they are things gifted to You on your journey.  Who You are is God’s BeLoved, and nothing can change that fact.  Everything in your life can fall away, and God/J has a plan for your life.  He has a plan and is simply awaiting your permission to begin working in your life.  God/J is Love, and Love always wins, even if it takes some time.  Keep believing, keep dreaming, keep trusting, and keep loving.

“The quickest way to feel better in any circumstance is

to help someone else, and in so doing,

you find your blessing and purpose.”

~ Anonymous ~

I am standing up for Love.  Will You please join me?

The Power of Imperfection

“Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong.
There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right.
To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.”

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~

Do what You can with what You have from where You are now.

Bryan Gaynor, computer science major of Kennesaw State University, Georgia, has a secret love.  Dance.  He also has a not so secret health issue, scoliosis, which influences his dancing.  Bryan is charismatic and instantly endearing with an obvious passion for life, music, and most especially dance.  He knows the secret of success as has collaborates with his body and creates a unique dance style that stirs the hearts of audiences worldwide.

“You’ve taken your physical appearance, your size, and everything else and you’ve used it to your advantage brilliantly.  What else could anyone ask of you.  That was just sensational.  Brilliant!”

~ Nigel Lythgoe, So You Think You Can Dance ~

Bryan Gaynor’s So You Think You Can Dance Audition – “Ain”t No Other Man”, Christina Aguilera

Bryan Gaynor’s So You Think You Can Dance Audition – “Fireflies”, Owl City

Bryan Gaynor & Remote Kontrol

Bryan chooses to believe in the beauty of creation, the power of art, and Love, his love for dance.  Bryan parented an entirely new form of dance because his dance was too much a part of him to let it go.  He made a way and inspires others in the process of doing what he loves.

“Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail”

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~

Taylor Swift is another prime example of someone who has created her own road.  Taylor’s decision early on to become a country star stayed her focus upon her goal transforming every block into a stepping stone.  She shattered the music industry’s illusions by going against everything she was “supposed to be” to succeed.  Taylor channeled her feelings of social outcast into teaching herself guitar and writing songs, developing her trademark candor ultimately catapulting her to international success.  Taylor’s determination to live her passion led her to create an entirely new sound that redefined the music industry worldwide.

What if we listen to our dreams and passions?  What if we allow our talents to lead us?  What if we believe in ourselves?  What if we know we are enough and feel lovable and worthy of every blessing intended for us?  What if we chose to perceive everything a gift of wisdom helping us to live our dreams?  What if we celebrate what is going right and use our strengths to bless one another?  What if we choose to believe life is happening for us?  What if we make a conscious choice to exchange being victimized for being victorious?

I made a life-altering decision this year …to find the blessing and to choose Love and Peace in every situation.  It required something unexpected …for me to be gentle with and kind to myself.  Those who know me would suggest it is an understatement when I say I was harshly self-analytical consistently focusing on what could be improved and how to improve it.  I was in a constant mindset of “not enough” being critical of everything because I believed it was motivating me to grow.  My spirit, one day, grew very weary of feeling as though it simply could never measure up, and it said, “Time to rest.”.  Spirit is our life force and pretty much runs the show.   “Now what,” I asked?  Spirit said, “You are Beloved, so just Be.  Be Love and Be Loved.”

Everything changed in an instant, and I began to see more clearly exactly how loved we are that God/J created an entire universe as our classroom and playground.  We are here to grow and learn, and beauty and strength is found in our imperfections.  My entire paradigm shifted, and everyday has become a gift.  How am I growing?  What am I learning?  Who am I becoming?  I choose to celebrate everyone’s uniqueness and focus on the positive.  I also seek to identify the blessings in everything, which sometimes requires creativity and deeper thought.

I used to think acknowledging one’s strengths was conceited, narcissistic, and self-aggrandizing and was certainly surprised to discover the opposite was true.  There is a difference between touting one’s self from a position of insecurity versus being grounded in peace and true self-love, and it is okay if it sometimes takes the former to get to the later.  Self-Love is fruit from the Tree of Life, which nourishes one to be a blessing to others.

“Oogy: The Dog Only a Family Could Love”, a heartwarming story by Larry Levin, chronicles Oogy’s harrowing tale of barely surviving after being baited for fight dogs.  He was left in a cage for five days without food or water with a hole in his head and other serious wounds.  Oogy eventually connected with an amazing family, who adopted him as one of their own.  Levin pondered, “I’ve often wondered what kept this dog going – this dog, who never knew any human warmth or kindness …and he couldn’t stop kissing us.”  He is an excellent example that imperfection provides a greater opportunity to connect more deeply, heart-to-heart, spirit-to-spirit.  Levin shares, “Oogy is a sign of encouragement because inevitably everyone’s going to go through some horrible stuff in their lives.  You just can’t skip it.  This dog is living proof that you can go through the most obscene experience and come out okay on the other side and find love on the other side.”  Oogy’s story confirms the reality that we are all spiritually connected, beyond the physical, reminding us that, at our core, we are Love.

Larry Levin talks about Oogy

Faith is easy when things go well.  Love is simple when people behave lovingly.  What about when someone or something is imperfect?  Do we give up, walk away, write it off, or do we recognize the opportunity for deeper Love?  Do we celebrate the beauty, strength, and gifts in imperfections?  Choosing Love goes beyond, helping our hearts, minds, and spirits mature.  Love nurtures potential, recognizes possibilities, and is the seed for miracles.  I choose Love.

May You see yourself through the eyes of our brilliant Creator understanding You are a glorious gift and a blessing in the world.  Know your “flaws” are “on purpose”, beautiful to the Creator, and offer You the opportunity to Love yourself more deeply in order to Love others more genuinely.  Imperfections are greater windows through which Love can flow.  May You celebrate the unique and wonderful treasures You bring to the world.  May You courageously be your marvelously authentic self  radiating brilliant light and inspiring others to shine with You.  May joy, Love, and peace fill your heart, mind, soul, and universe.  Know You are cherished, exquisite, and protected.  You are a divine miracle.  You are BeLoved.        ღ

The Power of Words

“Words have the power to destroy or heal.

When words are true and kind, they can change the world.”

~ Buddha ~

Words, words everywhere in what you hear, speak, and think  …and what you drink?!?

Dr. Masaru Emoto’s book, “Hidden Messages in Water” chronicles the effects of words on water.  Dr. Emoto discovered that words affect the formation of water crystals.  Beautiful words create elegant, intricate crystals, and unappealing words form unattractive and misshapen crystals.  Test it yourself by creating an easy home experiment utilizing cooked rice.  (Details on conducting the experiment are included at the end of the video.)   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZDOPQRdxJM

How is Dr. Emoto’s work significant for you?  Water defines over seventy percent of the human body, which means everything that is heard, spoken, or thought creates a vibration in water affecting every single cell in the body.  How?  The human body is a group of atoms vibrating so quickly that it gives the illusion of being a solid mass.  Jefferson Lab estimates the average human body is 7*1027 atoms (7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000) – that is seven billion billion billion atoms.  Wow!  Water’s hydrogen atoms form polar bonds to the oxygen atoms to create a web.  Huh?  Water creates a network that keeps the body’s atoms connected while still allowing them to vibrate in place.

Words are also give great significance in the spiritual realm.  Most religions reference, in on form or another, that the power of the word is crucial to the creative process.  Christianity notes that God created the heavens and the earth with a word.  “God said…”, and it was done.  There was no magic wand, no fairy dust, rather simply words that brought all creating into existence.  What mighty words!   Additionally, the power of the word was bestowed on humans when God created man in His image and likeness, “in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”  That includes You, too!

Why are words so powerful?

Has a friend every called you moments after thoughts of him/her popped into your brain?  Have you thought about a new car, and suddenly you see it everywhere?  Why?  Dr. Joe Dispenza, author of “The Thrones of Divinity”, appearing in What the Bleep, states, “Our human brain processes 400 billion bits of information every second; however, we are only aware of about 2000 of those billions of bits of data.”  How, then, does the brain determine how to filter the data it receives?   Words.  Words that are heard, spoken, and thought create receptors, homing beacons, in the brain, which the brain utilizes as a guide to filter information.  The brain is a dutiful servant and will focus on what its master tells it to.

How do we choose our words?

The selection criteria for the words we choose to hear, speak, and say is belief.  Belief is defined by The Princeton Dictionary as, “any cognitive content held as true”.  Notice it carefully distinguishes, “held as true” versus stating “is true”.  Beliefs exist solely in the mind requiring validation to exist. and the ego is in charge of collecting information to support the belief system.  The ego messages the brain, and the brain creates a filter to collect information to support the beliefs, and, voila!  Words.  (Please see the upcoming blog, “The Power of Belief” for more information on beliefs).

How can the power of words help for me?

Do you know race car drivers are taught to focus on where they’d like their car to go because it keeps them safe?  (Thank You, Tony Robbins, for sharing.)  Focus on where you’re going, not where you’ve been or where you are.  Both faith and the law of attraction highlight claiming what it is you desire.  Why?  It keeps your mind focused on where you’d like to be and ultimately determines where you are going.  Words create vibrations that attract similar words that attract atoms that group together to eventually form something.  The experience your words shape is your choice.  Hear, speak, and think only those things you’d like to manifest in your life, and be patient as your thoughts shape your new reality …and enjoy your daydreams in the meantime.

Still skeptical?  Okay.  Write down a list of ten words – five positive and five negative.  Focus on one word for a few minutes.  Allow it to roll around in your brain and on your tongue.  Think about the meaning that word has for you.  Pay attention to how your body responds.  Are you breathing deeply or shallowly?  Is your posture straight or slouched?  Are you smiling or not?  Your body is automatically responding to the vibration of the meaning you’ve attached to the word.

What if it seems like nothing is happening?

Research has proven the human brain cannot distinguish between something it has actually seen versus something it has imagined.  Images for the brain are incredibly powerful and help determine the words chosen to describe them.  It may help to create a clear picture of what you’d like to experience then focus your thoughts on that picture.  People sometimes experience resistance when there is a subconscious fear or “worth” issues around receiving.  See if you can coax the fear to the surface and shift its focus to what you truly desire because your words will follow.  Fear is simply love confused.  (I’ll include a helpful tip for this in a future blog).  Keep choosing words that affirm abundance, blessing, happiness, health, and wealth in what you hear, speak, and think, and eventually things will shift.  Remember, it’s like exercising – you’re likely to see more positive results as things progress.

It’s important to be very clear about the meaning attached to words, specifically that each person attaches individual meaning to words based on their experience.  Words’ meanings are the ones the individual chooses to give them.  Example: Love is a very powerfully charged word, and most people define love by their first experience of it, which is usually either largely positive or negative.  For some it means unconditional acceptance, and they feel nurtured and cherished when someone says, “I love you.”  For others, love was wrought with expectation and not measuring up, so they feel insecure and inadequate when someone says, “I love you.”  The individual experiences their definition of “love” whenever they hear, speak, or think the word “love”.  Be clear about what your words mean by exploring the meaning you attach them, and decide if that’s a meaning you’d like to keep or redefine.  Sometimes simply attaching a more positive meaning to a word creates wonderful results.

Can words create world peace?

Research documents people with major medical conditions that defied explanation cured themselves simply by saying aloud several times a day, “I’m getting better and better every day in every way”.

Do you ever wonder if society is being brainwashed by all the negative, fear-based advertising and news in the media?  Consider how things would change if media, benefits, concerts, foundations, research centers, walk-a-thons, etc.. began celebrating, honoring, hearing, speaking, and thinking abundance, happiness, health, love, and wealth?  What if it was the Susan G. Komen foundation for Breast Health?  What if October became Breast Health Awareness month?  What if homeless became homebless to focus on them being blessed with homes forthcoming?  What if we eradicated the word “victim” and replaced it instead with “champion”?  How would the world change if everyone speaks the language of Love?

Please share this message with as many people as possible and join me in starting a global movement of celebrating positive words that inspire, heal, and uplift.  Claim your marvelous destiny and what you truly desire – abundance, happiness, health, love, wealth, etc., and you’ll begin to see changes in your life.
