week 23- Soul

Today  people are so caught up in getting ‘likes’ and ‘views’ online that they neglected the elderly and the environment? Would it be that people had a deep sense of void because there were no social norms that promoted altruism and integrity?

In any of these cases, we can reflect on one main point: our level of happiness and satisfaction with life is not as high as it could be.  I have felt that sense of disconnect I just couldn’t figure how to fix it. When we blindly chase an ideal of happiness for ourselves, our society and our own happiness can become depleted as we pursue an image of happiness that society has decided for us.  (river of dreams)

But the truth is, we will never feel truly satisfied by fulfilling these prescribed images of happiness fed to us by popular media and social media.  If we want to find a sustained feeling of deep joy and meaning in our lives, we must change our lifestyles, even if they don’t reflect the values of those around us.

If everyone started to live with the intention to connect to their soul instead of their ego,  levels of joy, peace, and love would begin to increase. The good news is, when we disconnect from our egos and reconnect with our souls, we begin the ripple effect of a larger change.

People will begin to feel your intention and trust you more as you work on this – and you’ll be able to trust yourself more as you base your actions and decisions upon a soul foundation rather than allow your ego to drive you. This can greatly improve your success because you’ll be able to make better decisions quicker and thus you’ll be entrusted with more. When others feel you have everyone’s best interest at heart, they will see you as a leader who inspires others to work with the same ethic. You can become a person who positively impacts other lives through a warm hug, a good discussion, or a meaningful statement.

When we speak from our souls, it means we’ll speak with kindness, acceptance, and curiosity without judgement. We don’t need to seek external validation by allowing our egos to puff up our chests. Instead of using your energy trying to impress or defend yourself, use words that uplift everyone to feel welcome and loved. You’ll find that there is more energy between you and the people around you and it feels safer to open up. When we speak from the soul, we can communicate intuitively with the souls of others, rather than ego-to-ego. This deepens our ability to enjoy the moment and have more meaningful relationships. Move slowly, breathe slowly, and you’ll find your words will also be more measured and meaningful.

Assess Your Major Life Goals
If your goals are ego-based, you’ll only create more distance between the ego and the soul because your actions will only feed your ego.

Many happy people live rather unnoticed lives because they are focused on kindness and being a good person instead of recognition and prestige.

You can start by asking two things,

What does the world need?
What are my natural strengths and interests?

Our time is finite and we might as well live in love and not in fear.

When you’re more of your soul and less of your ego you’ll find you start smiling uncontrollably and people genuinely enjoy your company – you’ll enjoy your own company more, too. When you connect with your soul, especially if you haven’t taken time to do this before, you’ll find an unbreakable positivity and strength that no one, not even yourself, can take from you.

Week 22- To be or not to be

I am fascinated by by strong female leads in movies, always the under dog but become the hero in their lives.

I find, that I have my own style, charm and now my own self directed thoughts of my future.

I think differently therefore I am the new ME.

I love her. She rocks.

The new me

week 21- looking forward to the Silence

Today I feel sheepish. I am one of those people, who looks at their cell phone at a stop light. I am following the other sheep. I believe my own self importance, I mean somebody must need me for something. Right!

I just checked in, and was chatised for not responding to a message immediately from my daughter.   She believes I do not have a life outside of her wants and needs.

Wait a second, I created that by being at her beck and call. My mother is 90 and I must be available incase of an emergency.  So for my silence I am scheduling 3 days , yes I am arranging respite care for me and placing my mom temporarily in a nursing home so I can be alone, no work, no phone, no t.v, no radio…heaven I can hardly wait.

Thank you Master Key

week 20 Choosing Love every day not just Valentine’s Day

In the era of Facebook and Instagram, there’s so much pressure when it comes to pulling out all the stops while popping the question.

Utube videos  where the bride is surprised by a flash mob, as hundreds of people sing in harmony while also performing elaborate choreography. Oh, and it’s all conveniently captured from four different camera angles and spliced together in a film that racks up millions of views and goes viral!

But all of this “high bar” setting can slowly start to set up a false notion of what romance is. So can elaborate weddings and over-the-top honeymoons.

True love isn’t a man who will race through the rain down a crowded city street to passionately embrace his wife, beseeching her to return after a lovers’ quarrel.

Real romance doesn’t come with a hefty price tag or show its affections by emptying a bank account — or worse, by going into deep debt — in order to prove its sincerity.

Undying devotion isn’t flashy, wanting others  to cheer and applaud your showy efforts.

Authentic love isn’t proven by dramatic gestures, expensive rings or attention-getting tactics. Not at all.

It doesn’t claim that love is showy, but steady. It describes true love — the kind which comes from our creator or Universal mind and is in turn shown to others — by asserting that love “… bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

Bear: to properly place under a protective covering

Believe: to be utterly persuaded to be true

Hope: to actively wait for  fulfillment

Endure: to stand your ground, bearing up against hardship

So maybe, true love looks more like this:

It’s the steadfast presence of you, the willingness to stick it out when things get rocky. To demonstrates love when no one else is looking. True love is wholly committed, costing time and effort. It gives with no expectation of recognition or return.

Happy heart day!

Week 19- The better version of me

The struggle to be patient and kind, my emotions are in my control, I can choose to use my case of the grumpy pants(frustration).  But how, R2A2 , yes recognize the rising frustration, stop , change gears(law of substitution) I remember a time my mom was chasing me at the park and I am running and and laughing , I let the memory sit with me and really feel it, I begin to smile.  Why am I frustrated? Well it all boils down to fear, it is like being flattened by a boulder rolling down a mountain.

When my Mom gets it in her mind to walk to the local store, maybe she will forget how to find her way home. Today, she ordered on demand movies because she can’t figure out the remote for the t.v.  Yesterday, she  answered the phone by speaking into the t.v remote.  Somedays there is laughter and just plain silliness other days tears.

Time for reflection, the sits, my thoughts are powerful, the determine how my day will be, my sits will now be in the morning, so I can train my brain on how the future of that day will be, starting with gratefulness to have the opportunity and honor to look after my mom. A shift in perspective. The better version of me is emerging, I cannot cheat the gal in the glass out of the better version of me, I really don’t want heartache and tears, because I didn’t fully engage in thinking my way to giving my mom a better life for the days she has left on this earth.

I am listening to the noise machine, the setting is the crashing of Hawaiian waves, I think of the question “What would the person I intend to be, do next.” The answer, she will  be a better daughter and engage  the wonderful mechanism, my subconscious and train that brain, and she will meet her future self in Kauai this June.
