What lies on your path? What shows up as experiences for you to interact with? Where do these come from? How can I get the life I want to live?
Do you ever ask any of those questions? I bet you do, I know I have. What if I told you that every thing, any thing, is possible for you and that the probability is determined by your choice of thought combined with feeling and doing? Have you heard that before?
2015 is a year of living the “Promised Fulfilled” for those of us willing to move down the path of disciplined thought and mastery of our own life creations. This means changing our habits of thoughts. Rather than being tossed to and fro by the realities of others, we stay mind full of only that which we desire the experience of knowing that it’s already ours. When you close your eyes and imagine a thing, an experience, you are there with that very thing, its real, it’s done. When you open your eyes confusion often sets in due to the eyes telling you something different from what you know to be so.
How do we live with the creation before our eyes see it? By following what we KNOW rather than what our eyes see. I teach this process in How To Thrive In A Survival Mindset World, available at Amazon, Audible & ITunes, It’s kindle, print and audio for you. Decide today to change the way you are thinking. It’s not just what you think, it’s how you think. Spend five minutes right now watching that jumbled up chaotic bunch of thinking going on in your head. Use your breathing to slow down the jumbled up thoughts and pick one. Move gently into that thought. When everything scrambles up again that’s ok, take a few deep breaths and move back into that ONE thought. Let that thought guide you to it’s expansion.
Have fun with this process. We’ll talk about it more as we go on. Be sure to listen to my radio broadcasts on the Awakened Radio Network.. you can listen with the TuneIn app on your mobile or go to the website http://www.AwakenedRadio.net
I love happy. I write about happy. I talk about happy. I follow happy. Following the fun assures my happy. How bout you? Are you actually enjoying your life or just making it through from one day to the next? I understand how you feel about working to pay bills, take care of responsibilities, etc. BUT did you know that you can do all those things and enjoy them? It’s attitude and perspective. Just last night a young man asked what I did for “work”, to which I replied that I “play at working”. He told me how lucky I am and I agree. I’m lucky that I realized a few years ago that I can do what I enjoy and actually have money to do the monthly expenses, eat out, travel etc.
He told me that he was out of work and needed to find a job. I asked what he loved doing. After he told me I suggested he start his own business doing just that. Now get this.. he DID NOT jump up and down with joy at the prospect.. rather he began giving me a list of reasons why he CAN NOT do that. OK.
It’s all about your outlook. How are you seeing things? Hint here.. what it looks like “out there” is how you are seeing it in your emotions & beliefs. That’s why it keeps looking like that. Being happy isn’t hard. It doesn’t require any thing or any one to show up and do anything either. It’s a state of mind. It’s a choice.
Follow the fun, decide on happy. No matter what’s going on in your life decide on happy. Watch as new doors open for you bringing even more to celebrate.
You know I’m the Barefoot Guru but did you know I’m also Vaping Granny? I’ll be adding a bit about my vaping fun here on my blog as we go along simple because it’s something I really enjoy. I’m not saying you gotta do it so don’t send me comments about how I shouldn’t be telling people to vape. BUT if you would like to cut back on tobacco or quit smoking it might be of help to you.
I started about 4 years ago with ecigs and wasn’t very impressed. About a 1 1/2 years ago Zoe came home telling me that I needed to go to the store and get a vape pen. Eesh.. what’s that, I asked. We headed out to my favorite tobacco shop and low and behold there were vape pens that were fancy & sparkly with ejuices that were like tobacco, or melons, or coffee, or berries.. just about anything you can imagine.
Well we came home with a vape pen each & a few bottles of juice. That was the beginning. Now we are covered up with those pens, juice and MODS! Want to know more? Stay Tuned. Let’s have some fun! Leave me a comment.. be nice.. you know I love ya!
A lot of us grew up being told it was better to give than to receive. That’s just not totally true. Here’s why. When you give and give and give without knowing how to joyfully receive you run out of something to give. Have you ever felt resentful about how much you give to so many people and how little you seem to get? I bet you have. See, learning to receive with great joy keeps the abundance of all that good stuff flowing into and out and into and out and into your experience. Giving is a powerful way to have more of the great experiences show up in your life IF you are good at receiving as well.
Now I’m not talking about the “gimme gimme free free” mindset where people can never get enough free stuff or are always running from one place to another looking for something free. That’s all about lack, poverty and not valuing yourself or others. What I’m talking about is knowing YOUR worth and valuing both what is given and received. When you accept gifts of all kinds, whether they be actual stuff, compliments, money or kindness you are agreeing with the flow of abundance and inviting more of that into your life and the life of all those you interact with.
Giving for most of us is easy, receiving maybe not so much. Think of being a good receiver like this; your arms and heart are always open and outstretched, embracing life and all it’s gifts with dance and song. Close your eyes for one minute and see you doing that, having that experience. Receiving is about having that experience right now, where you are, even if you don’t physically have it in your hand.
Recently on one of my radio shows I used examples of how I won a few drawings for items I wanted to experience. I didn’t need them, or try to pull them to me. I felt them mine, I experienced having them before my name was chosen. That’s the how of receiving. Give, yes.. give from you abundance.. Receive.. yes.. from the place of knowing that it’s already yours. Play around with this imagination game and let me know how it works for you. I love comments.
WOW another year has come and gone. That was fast! Most of us are thinking about how we want 2015 to line up for us. I know I am thinking in those terms. I’ve started making my list of stuff to do, to experience. A few more books are on the drawing board for the coming year along with a few courses I’m putting together. I’ve added a garden and a move to my list too, along with new furniture and new friends. I love expansion of celebration energy.
I’ve got a few new things going on now for you too. See the picture above? It’s a special special for you. I don’t do autographed books that often but felt the nudge to put all five of these together in one autographed package to aid you in creating your year your way. That’s important. Your way. Not the way someone tells you it should be, but the way you want to experience your very own life. It is your life after all and you have the say so about how it lines up for you. Go to Shift My Beliefs for that great deal. It will open in a new page so you can stay here and take part in something else that awesome! I’m going all out to inspire you to create on purpose.
OK, here is the next Awesome thing I have for you. I have 15 audio copies of I Can Fill This Space With Any Thing I Want Consciously Creating Life. Audible gave them to me for me to give to you. Audible asks that you leave a review after listening and I ask that you practice the principles in the book in the coming year. Now, how do you get a copy? Leave me a comment here. Look where it says, leave a comment, at the end of this post. Once you do that I will be able to email you with the code for the audio book. It’s that easy.
Now honestly, the book is not going to jump up and transform your life. You get to do that. The book is simply a guideline on how to do it with gusto and fun. What are you waiting for? Go ahead and leave a comment. Say, Hey Donna.. I want a copy!
I hope you’ll watch the video as it gives you a good idea of what this blog post is all about. Did you watch it? Good. Now let’s talk about how it works. What did you think / feel while watching the video? Did your head fill up with arguments about how I just don’t understand what you’ve been through?
“Illusions” has a good line about that.. “argue for your limitation and they are yours”. That might not be a totally correct quote, but it’s the heart of the matter. The reason your life continues on and on and on and on is you are arguing for those limits. You don’t like to think about it that way, but that’s how it works.
The more you make excuses, the more you blame, the more you “reason”, the more your life is just a continuation of what you’ve already experienced. YOU are the power making it so.
YOU! ARE! Powerful! There. That’s the truth. What is going on in your head now? What are those emotions telling you? I know it feels hard to change it. After all you’ve been in this rut most, if not all, of your life. Yet I tell you the truth. ONLY you have the power to change anything in your life. You are constantly creating your world of experiences.
The more focused on what is you are the more of that you create. It takes a mind set on new ideas, new images, new beliefs, to bring about something new. Fill up on the desire. All that clap trap about having no desires is what keeps you from them. Let your imagination swirl, dance and delight you with images and emotion of that perfect life you want. See it and only it. Accept that this out here is only a left over shadow of your last creative effort. Note it as that, a shadow, a left over. Give it no more energy that the left overs in your fridge.
Now get busy imagining your life as you want it. Think it, feel it, close your eyes and be there in it. Hold it and only it in your heart. Expect it to form. Celebrate as it does.
Visit Shift My Beliefs let’s work together to get you on the right track for your new life.
Have you ever had one of those moments when for no reason, out of no where, someone just didn’t like you? Recently I had someone Thumb Down one of my videos on YouTube. I just sat there wondering about it for a few minutes. They hadn’t left a comment stating what about it they didn’t like, it was just there. A Thumb Down!
That’s a little thing but a good example to use in this blog post. What do you do when someone doesn’t like you or disagrees with you? Do you get all bent out of shape and strike out in anger or sulk away to lick your wounds?
I accept that not everyone gets me and that’s OK. Honestly I don’t get everyone either. I don’t thumb down videos that I don’t agree with, I just move on to the next one. I do that with conversations, movies, interactions with people too. Nothing to get all tangle dangled up about. Just go on to the next offering OR better yet.. create an experience that is much more to your liking.
That’s what I did with the Thumb Down video. I went to Twitter and asked people to thumb it up for me. Quite a few did and I really appreciate that.
Moral of this story: let all the Thumbs Down in your life be little things that you just laugh about as you move into something you enjoy!
