On Energy…

Thought 4 Today…Thought 4 LIFE!

On Energy…

We do not create energy, we distribute it, and in the natural sciences, we know that we can transform energy from one type to another. So the will may decide what form the energy is to take, but it cannot nor does it need to create the energy. -Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind

This is what I know.
We have all the energy we need to do and BE everything we are called to do and BE. We have all we need Spiritually to change…and to grow!

Trust and believe…nothing stays the same! Know in your heart, as well as your mind, that whatever troubles appear overwhelming today, they shall pass. It is through faith and knowing, not merely hope, that we transition to where we need to be through whatever challenges and struggles we may face. Know In your heart that when you stop attempting the new, fail to take chances, and refuse to face your fears, you will stagnate. You will no longer evolve into the Divine BEing that YOU are.

Today…I invite YOU to claim your energy! Refuse to become complacent! Keep changing! Keep dreaming! Keep growing! Our Divine energy is always available to us! Of this, I am certain!

BE The Source Within YOU…Now!

Have a Magnificent day…Everyday!
Blessings!

On Dreams…

Thought 4 Today…Thought 4 LIFE!

On Dreams…

“Anything you can dream of is not too great to undertake.”
-Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind

It is often a precarious balancing act… Dreaming, goal setting and meeting, moving, growing… And trying to keep faith and hope for a better tomorrow… All the while staying grounded in the present moment and appreciating the blessings that we have.

However, it is not impossible. Know that the possibilities are infinite and unlimited… With our feet on the ground, And reaching for the stars, we savor each moment!
And dreaming is good… Very good… Or how else may we achieve the impossible, but to believe that the impossible is possible?!

So… Time to put aside any fears and doubts!
Tomorrow offers unimaginable possibility. We can do anything! So long as we set our mindset to believe…to Know…we shall receive!

Today… I invite YOU to create joy and harmony in every waking moment!
Believe in yourSelf! For to do so… Creates endless possibilities!
Of this, I AM certain!

BE  The Source Within YOU…Now!

Have a Magnificent Day… Everyday!
Blessings!

On The Spirit of Livingness…

Thought 4 Today… Thought 4 LIFE!

On The Spirit of Livingness…

“In such degree as we contemplate the
Spirit of Livingness, It becomes manifest.”
-Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind

So… This is what I Know…
That One Power of Spirit acts in me, as me, through me so that I AM a thriving experience and expression of God…of Universe…of the Source Spirit that I AM!

Each and everyone of us is born with a unique Life force that wants to grow into full expression… However, wherever, whenever that might be!  Of this…I AM certain.

When we trust ourSelves… When we contemplate in alignment with that powerful Life force… With that One Power of Spirit… We make our powerful flowering and blossoming more possible… More carefree… And much more joyful!  Love, Prosperity and Abundance are all around us, and abound…so long as we open our Inner Eye to see and receive.

Today… I invite YOU to embrace your wholeness… Just where you are!
Your days will be brighter… Your load will lighten, as you go about the daily adventure of living Life to the fullest through the Light which Lives within You!
Happy day! 🙂

BE The Source Within YOU…Now!

Remember…Have a Magnificent Day… Everyday!

On Baggage…

Thought 4 Today…Thought 4 LIFE!

On Baggage…

“We should also erase the thoughts of yesterday that would rob us of today’s happiness.” -Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind

 

Making  several trips back-and-forth to the East Coast each year…and preparing for my next up and coming travels… I got to thinking…yet, once again…
If we were to put all our emotional baggage in a suitcase, it is likely that it could fill a jumbo jet. In that case… Where would we be headed?
Likely….Nowhere… And fast!

The inhibiting baggage that we carry in life today inhibits our happiness and Well-BEing. To rid ourselves of unhelpful feelings from the past, We must first recognize what baggage we are carrying… And be willing to let it go.
Whether your baggage Fits into one suitcase or not …stuff it all in there… Open the door to the plane in midflight… Figuratively… And throw the suitcase out. Smile as you let it fall into millions of pieces as it plummets to earth.
Who needs it anyway …anymore?!!!

The only baggage you will carry from now on is healthy baggage… Those pleasant, Life-affirming thoughts, experiences, and expressions from the past that soothe and comfort us.
Any other memory is of no use!  Of this…I AM certain!

Today… I invite YOU to rid YourSelf of this excess baggage… That which does not serve to Empower You…And lift the burden of the past from your Life in the present.  Try IT…YOU just might like IT!

BE The Source Within YOU…Now!

Remember…Have a Magnificent day… Everyday!
Blessings!

On Obstacles…

Thought 4 Today…Thought 4 LIFE!On Obstacles…


In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity. -Albert Einstein

So…this is what I know.
With a heightened sense of Self, obstacles can, in many ways, become opportunities. As we recognize our past obstacles, and acknowledge all that we have accomplished as we overcame those obstacles, we are best prepared for today’s present moments, joys and challenges included.
As we travel on this journey called Life, everyone, from one time to another, has experienced obstacles. Perhaps family problems, unsettling economic times, legal challenges, divorce, illness and disease, and even death have served to batter us, at least, emotionally. Yet, somehow, we have managed to whether those bumps in the road. Whatever our particularly brand of coping, now is the time to applaud and appreciate what we have overcome. To realize and declare the obstacles surmounted, and the strength which we have amassed while rising above Life’s inevitable challenges and struggles.
In large measure, obstacles are as big and bright, or as small and dull as we interpret them. However, we always know when we have overcome an obstacle…When we have successfully risen to the challenge that has confronted us.
Today… I invite You to see that proverbial glass as half full…rather than half empty. Today…I invite You to see little hillsides, rather than insurmountable mountains, as you face your fears, and eliminate that word “can’t”.
Yes…acknowledge and reward yourSelf for the unique and empowered being You are! You deserve it. Of this, I am certain!
BE The Source within You…Now!
Have a Magnificent day… Everyday!  
Blessings & Happy Weekend!

On Destiny…

Thought 4 Today…Thought 4 LIFE!

On Destiny…

“Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is the thing to be achieved.” -William Jennings Bryan

 

It can be an intimidating thought that some things in life are inevitable… Out of our control… A matter of faith. Most of us feel safe when we feel in control.

To be out of control… In the sense that you surrender to your destiny while making the wisest choices available…Divine Right Choices… is a step toward finding Peace of Mind. The key is to understand that Peace of Mind comes when we control what we can.… As we have the Faith that our destiny will be fulfilled in Divine Right Time!

We are here to make wise choices based on love  to shape our destiny… And to realize our Life Purpose!

Today I invite…You to surrender… To make wise choices… To have faith…and to follow your heart. For it is then that we Know our Purpose!  Of this…I AM certain!

How Breast cancer Empowered Me!

…On Empowerment Through Breast cancer…

October is Breast cancer Awareness Month.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So…This is what I Know.

There is a lot of fellowship among breast cancer survivors. People tell Breast cancer personal stories, go on Breast cancer walks, and join Breast cancer support groups in order to be closer to other survivors…as well as, Thrivors…that’s Thriving Breast cancer survivor…of which I AM Blessed to BE!!!

Being close to other breast cancer survivors/Thrivors prevents the loneliness many women feel who have had…or have Breast cancer.  And…You can learn a lot about Breast cancer from hearing Breast cancer personal stories.

Please keep this Essential in mind as you read on…in all of Life…

“In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.” — Eleanor Roosevelt

Perhaps…One of the greatest difficulties in Life is facing one’s own mortality. The incidence of Breast cancer, as well as, Living with Breast cancer, and the uncertainty of it’s outcome can be a time of emotional, physical, and Spiritual upheaval in one’s life. It is often said that with great difficulties comes personal growth. This personal growth and strength can also bring a sense of accomplishment: “I made it, I finished my chemotherapy and radiation treatments and I am here to talk about it.” You reflect on what you have learned. I sure did!  The Breast cancer experience brought me to another place that I just had not encountered in “normal” everyday life. It is an experience that stands alone and is set apart from everything else that has ever happened to me.

Often others will say how much they admire you for the strength you showed in coping with Breast cancer. Accept and be proud of not only getting through breast cancer treatments but also for the Wisdom the experience has taught You….has taught us. We are now in a position to give back and it will feel good.  We can choose to Empower others, share what worked for us during our experience and expression of Breast cancer, and offer encouragement to someone who has been newly diagnosed. Empowerment knows that no matter what situation we are in that there is always something positive we can do.

Given choices…No one chooses to grow by facing Life’s difficulties… but this is how Empowerment begins… and together with personal growth we emerge as individuals with Courage, Empowered to BE Our True Self.

Feeling Empowered is subjective… and varies from individual to individual.  But the Universal Truth of Empowerment comes from the knowledge that We have options and control over Our choices… the ability to make those choices… and the responsibility for the choices We make.

Empowerment is that feeling and conviction that comes from having gone through a difficult situation and made it. Capturing our “new normal” is taking that newly Empowered Self… and using IT to form a new and improved YOU.  The way you viewed yourself in the world and how you filled your days prior to having Breast cancer will take on new meaning. Your perspective may not change at all… but for most women living with breast cancer, the experience enriches their Lives and takes Life down a new path.   Finding Empowerment no matter what stage of Breast cancer treatment You are in…regardless of what season of Life You are experiencing… is about using it to create a “new normal” for YourSelf.

As a significant aside, please know that…Women are natural attractors. Yet due to cultural programming, many women have lost their way, and we end up approaching work like a man. The masculine program is all about goal-setting and goal-getting; this rarely works for women in the long-term. Instead, women must fill our cup first with what makes us come alive, and be immersed in a community of support, adventure, and inspiration. And then, we blossom…and attract!

The Dalai Lama said that the world will be saved by Western Women.  I happen to think he was right.

As an Empowerment Coach who has worked closely with women for over a decade, I find that deep-down, women naturally desire to create work that makes a difference in the world. The most important thing we can do is to discover and pursue work we Love. This is essential for our Happiness…for our Health and Well-BEING!

Human nature for many reasons focuses on living. People are busy making plans, setting financial goals, establishing career moves, building a family life, and not dwelling on the end. Often much time is wasted on unimportant things that are valued at that moment or time in your Life. Having Breast cancer brings Your mortality to the forefront. What your beliefs have been before now may be questioned as the reality sets in that our Life on earth is only temporary.

Life is meant to be Lived. You are a unique partner in Life… with Purpose and Meaning to your existence! So… Why not Live it with a participatory viewpoint?  I Truly Believe…It is easier to prioritize the important things, experiences, and people in your Life when you have dealt firsthand with challenging situations…Breast cancer being one of them. You can choose to waste less time or waste more time. Spend less time at non-Purpose and non-Meaning work  and experiences…and more time enjoying Your family and friends, Nature…and that which Truly Makes your Tail Wag.

Here’s yet another Essential to ponder…

While It is only one way of Living…Living with the end in mind is one way to participate in your Life with a Zest, Awareness, and Appreciation that may go unnoticed prior to having Breast cancer. Being diagnosed with Breast cancer is not a gift in itself, but the Wisdom that comes from the experience is a gift that can enrich and fulfill your life.  Trust and Believe…I know…as I often referred to my own diagnosis of Breast cancer as…”Not the best news, but not the worse news either!”

Once we have come face to face with our challenges…the “bad”…the “ugly”…even mortality, then we can Truly Live. In that spirit, Debbie Mazza-Taylor, who lost her five-year experience with Breast cancer just days before her forty-first birthday, wrote this poem:

For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind?

And to melt into the sun.  And what is it to cease breathing, but to free the breath From its restless tides, that it may rise and expand Seeking God unencumbered?

Only when you drink from the river of silence Shall you indeed sing.

And when you have reached the mountaintop Then you shall begin to climb.

And when earth shall claim your limbs, Then shall you truly dance.

My philosophy includes that Life is meant to be Lived with the thought that… Life is not a dress rehearsal — You only have one chance at it….and, yes…The Show must go on!  Of this…I AM certain!

Today…I invite YOU to BE The Source Within You…Now!

On Thinking…

Thought 4 Today…Thought 4 LIFE!

On Thinking …

“Thought is an inner movement, which is largely the result of one’s perception of life and his reaction to it.”
-Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind

So…this is what I Know.

The power of the mind is truly amazing and breathtaking. We have the ability to influence our state of health, well-BEing and feelings through our mind.

Through our thoughts we create chaos or Calm… pain or Joy.

Consider this… Change how you may view both the past and the present… And commit to reframing your future expectations.
Become aware of and stop those negative, judgmental, and toxic thoughts as they creep in to your mind. Instead, choose words that are affirming and supportive about yourself, as well as others.

As we stretch the possibilities… And they are limitless… By enriching our mind with positive, life-affirming thoughts we stimulate our mind to experience and express New and wonderful things.

Today… I invite YOU to feed your mind, just as you would your body, nutritious food. Encourage your mind to stay fit… And in shape! Remember, in matters of the mind, we are the programmer… And our “updates” hold endless possibilities!  Of this I AM certain!

BE The Source Within YOU…Now!

On Magnificence…

“But there is something else very great, it makes the whole coincide, it, magnificent, beyond materials, with continuous hands sweeps and provides for all.” -Walt Whitman

So…This is what I Know.

The Magnificence of who we are is seeking to express ITSELF today. That awesome Presence…Source, Spirit, Universe, God… within us… As us… Through us, is absolutely calling us to become more and more of who we are. As I speak this word now… In this very moment our seeds of greatness are growing and spreading in infinitely and unlimitedly new and creative ways… Those insights of Infinite Mind, Excellence, and Intelligence… all within each and everyone of us.

Right where we are now, God…Infinite Mind…Absolute Truth… Love , Is that which is blessing us beyond our fondest dreams and imagination… Ultimately becoming our Reality. Just as I AM Being asked, You are Being asked to step into the master plan of your Life… Identifying, accepting, experiencing, and expressing all of the Authentic Power within You.

Now is the time for Divine Right Choice… For Divine Right Action. Now is the time to Live the Life we Desire … Rather than a life of default. Of this, I AM certain.

Blessings & Happy Weekend!

On Wisdom…

Thought 4 Today… Thought 4 LIFE!

On Wisdom…
“ Wisdom is your perspective on life, your sense of balance, your understanding of how the various parts and principles apply and relate to each other. It embraces judgment, discernment, comprehension. It is a gestalt or oneness, an integrated wholeness.”-Stephen R. Covey

Yes… Wisdom is your perspective! You own IT… And that’s how you arrive at your sense of Self… Your wholeness, completeness and perfection!

Have you ever been in the spot where friends, although meaning well, are offering you advice… But, it just isn’t right for you. That advice almost always comes from the other person’s idea of what is correct for them. It’s wonderful if that advice happens to be right for you. But if it isn’t right for you it can really get in your way! Of this, I am certain!

Today… I invite YOU to help yourSelf, as well as, others by seeking and offering that help that connects you to your own wisdom.

It is our own wisdom that provides us the fullness and joy of being ourSelf.
