Be Grateful

37586

“No one owes me anything,” is something I have believed for a long time.

They don’t have to buy products from me, they don’t have to be friends with me, they don’t have to take my calls or even like me. I’m not owed anything.

Every single thing in my world is a gift. Every friend I have. Every dollar. Every good day. They are all gifts

Period.

I L O V E looking at life this way because it causes my mind recognize the value of what I have and not take it for granted.  That’s what I’ve been thinking about on my morning adventure, making love to Boulder a little longer before I fly home. (I am so at home in this hippie town)

I have so much, I feel overwhelmed sometimes with all of the good that constantly flows in my direction.

Sometimes it just comes effortlessly, other times not so much, but still it comes.

Good things happen to me and hard things too… but they also have gifts and teaching me things I had not learned yet.

Being grateful for everything, and taking time to list it out in my mind, erase expectations and just SEE WHAT IS puts me in a state of grace with life itself. Could this day get any better?

What Challenges You Changes You

p2

Don’t shy away from pain, lean into it and see what it has to teach you.

We are Divine, infinitely powerful beings with the universe inside of us. If you’re hurting, what’s INSIDE that for your gain.

Life is happening “for” us, not to us.

When things feel hard, it doesn’t mean they aren’t working out, it means there is MORE TO COME.

God Is On My Side

p1

God gave us an earth that was unfinished so we could work with what’s here and in the process know our powers as CREATORS.

I know of nothing else (except parenthood) that shows us how strong, capable and un-bendable we are inside.

Your goals want you as much as you want them.

The universe has your back.

Things are working for your good, even your so called, “set backs.”

Who Do I Want to Be?

whodoiwanttobe

 

We get at least a hundred opportunities in a single day to ask ourselves:

WHO DO I WANT TO BE?

Do I want to be love, abundance, forgiveness, present, Spirit-centered and in Divine flow? (or all kinds of other ways)

Today, we make the choices, and in the days to come — life will show us how we answered.

Know Truth by Living It

Truth

I used to sit and read and study books for hours and hours. I wanted to learn all that I could. Hungry for more knowledge, I asked God to show me how to accelerate my growth.

He led me to build a positive change business helping others heal.

Instead of reading about faith, I had to pull it out if my cells to make things move.

Instead of learning about commitment, I had to draw it out daily, amidst obstacles at times, to build something solid.

Instead of receiving revelation at church, I needed it every single day, every phone call, each interaction, I felt I had to have His guidance to know even the words to speak.

Putting PRINCIPLES into ACTION…helped me to KNOW TRUTH BY LIVING IT.

That kind of knowledge is so different in my spectrum than all the reading I used to do–like night and day. This is LIVING KNOWLEDGE. Moment by moment inspiration.

It’s one thing to “know” a principle, and another when it BECOMES who we are, by doing it so many times, we can’t even remember living another way.

It’s not truth by knowing…

It’s TRUTH by BEING, and BEING happens by IMMERSION.

Change Yourself for a Different Experience

Change Yourself

If you think people owe you something–more love, more money, more appreciation, an apology.

It means you are still outside sourcing important aspects of your life.

One thing I never hear from people who are connected to their own power is the story of how they believe someone owes them something.

They never talk about how they need an apology, a phone call back, or someone slighted them with money.

They are in the driver’s seat. They are connected to their own power and to God. They have so many great things going on, they live in a place where there is not lack.

Because they create so much for themselves, including emotionally, they don’t get “hurt” or perceive shortages from others. If a relationship doesn’t work for them, they simply change THEMSELVES and therefore they make sure they have a different experience.

TRUTH DIVE:

Who are all the people that you feel haven’t given you enough?

What personal power have you given away to them? What are you still “waiting” to be given from another person so that you can be truly happy?

If you tell the truth, Resentment for them will turn into compassion for yourself, when you didn’t know what you were doing.

Stay Steady in Transition

steady in transition

One of the reasons I love the sea, is that it reminds me that everything comes and goes.

Life is always changing. A situation comes today, and by tomorrow it’s over. That was the deal–the way this was set up.

We, eternal beings, would be placed on a planet where everything was constantly in motion. A thousand things a day would come at us–some of them difficult and confusing–but all of them temporary, while we searched for happiness, and survival.

What would we do? How would we respond?

The flow is always coming, and another going at the very same time.

While I sit here in front of the ocean, I have the thought of two years ago when I went through some really hard times. I can’t remember much. The details are so faint in my head now. The one part I can remember, is thinking that I was going to die, the pain was so intense sometimes.

I didn’t die…. [ to my surprise at times]

I just kept living. I couldn’t die, it seemed.

I’d fall into bed exhausted, and the next day would tap on my shoulder and wake me up wanting to me to live it. Day after day, new opportunities came to learn and integrate that learning into my being.

I am so saturated in happiness now, I sit in wonder often at how all this came to be.

As the waves roll in one after another, no end in sight, I am looking for the pattern, trying to pin point how I got from there to here.

I remember that in each life situation that came rolling in, I would look for my own center–Even if it tumbled me, I was looking to grip the ground.

In everything, I asked God to walk me through it.

I let go of blame and anger and looked for the fastest entry point to peace.

I always had to take that exit alone, getting rid of the story of “everyone else,” –what they said, what they thought, what they did — blah, it only weighed me down.
Christ–who is the God of my understanding–WAS my tour guide. It was His voice I looked for; His presence, and I could find it every time I silenced the world and asked him to meet me.

A while ago, someone asked me how I got to be attuned to spiritual things. I have no answer except that I know if you reach for your God a thousand times, a REAL BEING comes to meet you. He is completely alive. His voice sounds a certain way. His Spirit has a resonance. His Light is so familiar. He is not an ethereal fictitious character written with black ink on thousand year old pages. He — is — close, so reachable.

There is no lack of access to Him; all of our separation is lack of desire and discipline in reaching FOR Him.

And that was THE WAY. A true, genuine relationship from one soul to another.
It’s the answer I am looking to give to myself when I wonder how I got from pain to peace.

My own affidavit that God is in our cells, waiting for us to take look into our own DNA.

The more we practice PEACE, the more it becomes who we are. And soon, we get so tall, that a lot of waves roll in that we don’t even notice.

I am not sure what tomorrow will bring. Thankfully, I don’t need to know. There will definitely be more waves.

Yesterday there were four different people who expressed a unhappiness with me for different reasons. There were two phone calls of business emergencies, a total emotional fit from my daughter, and a twelve year old deeply unhappy I said no to him. Plus, I have a load of whites I haven’t washed for three days and I am totally out of underwear now. (That’s probably more than people want to know.)

There is going to be more waves…lol…I know that for sure.

They will come and go.
That’s what waves do.

I will always have the same question in front of me.

How do I want to experience this?
Who do I want TO BE while I am here?

I really do feel, that looking for the CENTER, the Highest response, and direction from the God of my understanding, is the ONLY answer there is ever going to be to these thousands of situations.

And the ONLY ONE required.

A lot of people grieve and others suffer from unmet expectations.
Whatever we’re experiencing, there are so many choices that can make a difference in how we feel.

I Am Honest

8:16

My favorite thing about team calls is not growth numbers or big plans…but the HONESTY.

We have a culture of genuine authenticity where you can talk about where you’re weak or what you’re not good and that’s just what we do. You can share anything. No gossip. There’s no judgment. No backlash. (No one would listen if you tried.)

A celebration in the truth-telling.

So people will actually say in front of everyone… “On a scale of 0-10 with this, I’m a 3.”

I get a thrill when I hear it. Sometimes I’m the one who starts it. I love it because it’s so real, I think.

And because whatever you can SEE, you can IMPROVE, and I feel the progress speeding along all around me.
