How to Acknowledge What Is, While Also Focusing on How You Would Like it to Be.


It is necessary to acknowledge and deal with on some level, everything that crosses our path in order to move forward toward more of what we wish to experience.  Although we must have acceptance of every situation or thing that exists in our current reality, we get to decide how much of our focus it gets, and how it will shape our lives.  By determining where we want to live in our minds and hearts, just as we decide where we’d like to live in the physical world, we can then respond to the issue from a more neutral state, rather than letting it toss us around by allowing it to gain power over us.  We can create more of what we would like to experience, rather than what we would not.

We choose the reality we create.  If things are showing up that we do not wish to experience, we must accept that for some reason that is where we are right now, either personally or globally.  Once we have accepted this, then we can choose to look for the gifts and teachings we have gained from having been there.  All the while, we can keep our focus on our dreams and desires until our outer reality changes to catch up with the new reality we have planted and watered with our attention and focus.

It is true that sometimes we need to change our environment in order to grow. But sometimes, we need to grow in order to be able to change our environment.

The fastest path from here to where we’d like to be, is to accept reality as it is, in its entirety- but to place our attention on where we wish to live, in our hearts, bodies, and on our earthly domain.





Here’s another inspired writing…


Be willing to see it and feel it bursting out of you.

Fall into it as you would a refreshing pool on a hot summer day.

Joy will catch you, just as the water in the pool, and is waiting to fill you with its magic.  You will feel refreshed and rejuvenated.

Be willing to allow yourself to experience joy.

Ecstatic joy with no holding back.

Exuberant, overwhelming joy, in its purest and deepest form.

Allow it to catch you as you fall back into its splendor- and know yourself as worthy of the abundant excitement you will feel as it soaks into your entire being- mind, body, and spirit.

Know and allow joy- As much as you have known and allowed yourself to feel and re-feel the effects of pain, loss, grief, abuse, and regret.

Let joy be the elixir that washes your soul clean of those past hurts.

Renewal is at hand.

If you only decide to allow joy.

How Do You Trust, When You’ve Been Hurt Before?

How Do You Trust, When You’ve Been Hurt Before?

Let’s take a look at trust for a moment.

It’s great to have it.  It fact, it is a large part of what makes the world go’ round. We need to be able to trust others in order to create a healthy, harmonious, and joyful life for ourselves, as we must co-create with others in order to thrive and survive. Yet there are some people or situations that you shouldn’t trust.

How can you know the difference?

If you become still for a moment and tune into yourself, you will find that your intuition and gut feelings from your higher level self (not the self of your personality or earthly concerns) can assist you.  From this point of stillness and introspection, you can distinguish between what is actually true in the present moment, from what truth you may assign to the present moment based on fear from old wounds and traumas, before you make decisions.  Once you have done this, you will know that you are choosing from the highest truth of the situation, rather than based on your earthly self’s desire to protect you from something that carries a familiarity to a previous person or situation that caused you harm.

If you trust no one, your heart will remain closed and locked, and you will not find yourself open and flowing to all of the possible opportunities and experiences in your life.  For that reason, in order to live a rich and full life, it is important to uncover and apply loving kindness to your past traumas and wounds.  In healing those wounds, you will then find yourself able to approach the world with a healthy discernment and be more open to your life’s experiences.  We do not tend to engage with those people and experiences that we do not trust. Therefore, in order to fully engage in your life and allow everything that is beneficial for you to come in, you must readjust your filter, and allow your energy to continue to flow.

Trust yourself enough to heal.  You can (and will) do this.
