End of the World or Time to Evolve Already

Have you ever wondered why humanity is trained to be so fearful?  Think about it for a moment.  We fear getting sick, people leaving us, death, being robbed, what others think about us.  Why?  Why do we invest so much energy & time into fearing what might happen?

It’s about control.  Not self control, but the few controlling the masses through the power of fear. Yes, it is a very powerful tool and has worked for thousands of years.  Even the “spiritual” leaders use fear to build up their following.  If you don’t believe me just check out YouTube.

I get tickled when the “spiritual gurus” fall in line with the fear mongering of mainstream religion and politics.  How many times does the messiah have to miss the coming back dead line before people wake up and stop listening? How many times does the earthquake, you know that, BIG ONE, not shatter the country, before we stop listening to the doom day sayers?

What would happen in YOUR life if you focused your attention on living a life of joy and wonder?  Pause for just a moment and let yourself ponder that question.  What would your life be like if instead of living in fear you rather lived in joy and awe?

Are you willing to invest wisely in your life?  You want change?  Then it’s time to do the work.  Deal with the fear, face it, then let it go.  Move into a new mind set of joy and love.  You can.  There is no one more powerful or more loved than you are right this moment. Embrace that!  Live That~

I love you

Love yourself well!

The End of the World Yet Again

A bit of tongue in cheek today.. I just upgraded to Windows 10 and nothing odd happened.  I have not noticed any creepy crawlers around the desk.. LOL

I personally love technology and understand that it can’t do it’s job without “spying” on me a bit.  Oh, well.. I have a choice.. move to a cave or celebrate the wonderful technology all around us. Since I am a creature of comfort, I’ll leave the cave for another.

I really do get a lot of giggles when watching YouTube videos about how they have “proof” of the end of the world.  Don’t we get tired of these self proclaimed profits being WRONG?  Why are they still listened to?  Why do we insist on staying in fear and anger.

That’s the really important question.. why stay stuck in fear & anger?

Look within, acknowledge your own self imposed limits.  Heal.. heal.. heal..







Predetermine your life experiences. Creating as Creator.

You already predetermine your experiences, mostly, though, you are unaware of what you are creating and how.  Pause for a moment and consider all the time spent worrying, dreading, dreaming up and imagining how life is soon going to be for you.  See the power of that?

That’s how it’s done.  I could stop right here as that is the key.

Take that same principle and use it with the ideas of what you really do desire to experience.  Stop worrying your experiences into place, rather, dream your life into place.  It’s that simple.  It might not feel so easy to start with as you haven’t practiced this way of creating often enough for it to feel natural.  Continue practicing.  Imagine what you desire to experience.  Always go there.  When the mind wanders STOP and go into your imagination and create your desires.

Just keep doing that.  Do it over and over again day in and day out.  No matter what is there for you now, interact lightly with it knowing it’s just a shadow.  Keep your mind fixed on your desires and soon you will begin noticing how your experiences start to change.  Stay the course.

Love yourself well!

Pay Attention to Your Thoughts

It’s summer.  It’s hot. It’s humid. That’s how it’s been my whole life here in south Alabama.  In the summer we talk a lot about it being hot & humid.  It also storms a lot here, has a far back as I can remember.

Nothing new about any of that.  You might be wondering why I’m blogging about weather.  I’m actually not.  I just want to get your attention!

How often do we just seem to be stuck on the same conversation?  How often does our life seem to be a rerun of what’s gone before?  There’s a reason for it. We are that reason.  We keep the same movie running in our heads where it shows up as strong emotions, we imagine it over and over again so it must take form.

That’s how we create.  We do it either with full understanding or in our ignorance of not knowing who we are and thereby not  paying attention.

Just for today pay attention to your thoughts, feels and your life.  Do you see how they all reflect one another?  Want a different movie to star in? Create a new movie in your head and stay in that movie and thrill as it becomes your reality!

I love you,

Love yourself well!

Reading by Candle Light

Just the other day the weather siren went off three times. That means a tornado has been spotted. Each time I went to the windows and say no sign of one so I continued about my business.  The winds blew walls of rain from one direction to another.  The trees danced bowing down low to kiss the Earth Mother with their lowest limbs.  It was a beautiful sight.

Then it happened!  The power went off.  Here in Alabama that’s not uncommon during thunderstorms. We tend to get some duzzies in this area and we don’t panick. Generally within a few minutes or a few hours the power is usually restored.

Not this time though.  After a few hours of reading I decided to see what the power company said about it all.  Calling their phone tree I finally got a message that the power would be on by 12:30. Not bad I thought, only a few more minutes of waiting time. A few hours later I called again and got the recorded message that the power would be on by 3:30.  Again, not bad, just a few more hours to go and more reading could take place.

Finally when my tablet reported that it only had 5% battery left I thought I’d call again.  It’s now around 5 in the afternoon.  Just as I was about to call a truck pulled up in my yard. Out jumped my daughter, terrified!  When I got to the door she gave me a huge bear hug and said she loved me.  Seems she had called and texted me many, many times with no response and thought I’d been swept away to OZ!

Once again a phone call was placed and I received the message that power would be restored by 11 PM. Eesh.. this is getting a bit silly, I thought. I really wanted some coffee.  I love coffee. Since all the wood was drenched I couldn’t even make coffee on my fire pit.  After my daughter left I drove to a friend’s house to check on her.  She had candles for the night so after a bit of chatting I went back home.  I lit my candles and pulled out a “real book”. :)

My little tea light candles were not bright enough to read by so I grabbed my battery powered candle and read right till the end of that print book.  It was a good read too.  I did some meditation and soon went off to sleep.  Sometime during the night, (found out later it was 3:45) the power came on and I woke for an instant hearing my fan start up.

Why am I sharing this little story? We are all creating and co creating. Sometimes the creations of others plays about on the edges of our world.  We can fuss, stomp and snort about it or grab a good book, a few candles and enjoy the down time.  That’s what I did.

Count it all joy.. In everything Be Thankful!

I love you.. love yourself well!

Keep That Energy Ball Rolling Along

You are what keeps it going. Whatever it is! You keep it rolling right along. Have you ever noticed how when one or two people in a group start expressing anger more and more people join the party?  Same thing for giving thanks and kindness.  Once we get energy moving it expands and more of it is expressed. That’s why it’s so danged hard to stop the anger and fighting.  Too many people are rolling that energy ball down the road.

Not only do we do this as groups, but individually as well.  As long as you hold onto a train of thought it’s added to with feeling, actions, circumstances, which brings about even more thoughts along the same line.  It builds into forms which leads to even more energy being expanded and created.  We all do it.  We worry, complain, gossip, express our fears and our anger.  The more we do the more we create the very same things we are worrying and complaining about.

Recently I have been watching a group of people who are weary of the ugly words of others.  Some people in this group are expressing their lack of pleasure by stating that they just simply will not be part of it any long.  Others are fussing and cussing about how horrible it all is and poking fingers at the ones causing the problem.  Do you see what’s being created here?  The more people fuss the more the fussing people fuss, so it continues.

A big topic of conversation is how we can change the world.  Leave the world alone and change YOUR world.  You are not in control of the thoughts and actions of others.  You don’t have to play with them, you can move into a new experience at any time.  Change your world.  Choose your thoughts, words, feelings, actions to be in line with how you want to experience your world.

You have ALL the power in your own life and your own creations.  Stay true to your course, flow all the energy into your dreams and desires.  Let others do the same.  Start by loving & respecting yourself.  It all starts there.  Without love for you there will be little love for others.  Loving yourself, honoring yourself overflows into kindness towards others.

This is how we change the world.

I love you!!!

To Thine Own Self Be True

Why do you do, think, believe, as you do? Chances are almost 100% it’s due to outside influence. You are a parrot or what those around you think, believe and do!  I know that’s not the most comfortable statement to accept, but it is, however, true.

We’ve all been trained, for the most part, to react… not to think, experience, engage with new ideas or sights.  Since childhood you’ve known what things are and your whole life experience has been based on that previous knowledge. Rarely do you think about or engage with, anything in a new way.  Only when trying something totally new do you think and experience the situation while paying attention and gaining information in a new way.

Your brain is a recording and retrieving device that constantly brings information to you.  It’s bringing old information too. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not putting down our wonderful brains, I am delighted that I don’t have to relearn basic things each and every day.  BUT when you whole life is a rinse and repeat of previous experience things start getting tricky.

You most likely are one of those people who cry out for change, for different.. yet no matter how hard you try, things remain the same for you, right? Well here is the key to that.  In order to get something new you’ve got to think, feel, do, experience different and that’s hard to do when you are caught up in repetitious living.

Being conscious means you are letting go of the ideas that you’ve had thus far and are knowingly looking at things in a whole new light.  You are willing to release patterns, beliefs and programs that keep you repeating life experiences. Imagine for a moment sitting with a square peg trying to get it to move easily into a round hole.  How long would it take to wear down the sides of the peg?  Would you stay at it long enough to reshape the peg?  Probably not.

The secret here is to look at the task in a new light. Stop repeating the action, move onto a new action or find a way to easily round the sides of the peg.  Take today to rethink your life.  What do you want?  Don’t get stuck in what you feel you need, that just keeps you needy. Define what you want. Now take thoughts and actions in that direction, one step after another.  Release what others have told you and think for yourself. Be free, be happy!

I love you… love yourself well.
