All Roads Lead To Your Destination

I mention this because, some people are all about using vision boards, pinterest or making a list. It all works, there have been several times I’ve made a list of things that I wanted to create for my house? Neighborhood? and more! All of these have come to pass!

Crazy things like moving a meter in the house, changes in the neighborhood. Magic and the Universe are all around you. With people setting Goals for the New Year! The sky’s the limit. Anything you can imagine, you can create! So stop thinking small! You might want to go to places that make you feel happy and excited. It’s about changing how you feel and how you think! It’s very much like planting seeds! Make sure you keep this in mind. It will make it much more easier for you to bring it forward into your life.

One last thing, you still have to take action. What does that mean? It means you have to participate in your own life. When you get push back from the Universe pay attention. This will usually happen more than once. When that happens, pay attention? Is it trying to warn you that you might not what to put your money in the money market fund or bonds, stock? These are very real scenarios. Life isn’t all about logic!

If it appears that what you’ve put on your list hasn’t come forward yet. Don’t count it out just yet. It might be it’s no longer in alignment with who you are? It might be coming in an unexpected way. Also be open-minded, sometimes things on our list are gifts. Sometimes they will be provided in another way. If you life is in the shit hole, it might be because your about to get bigger and better changes coming into your life.

When you take action, it starts to get things moving. If you’re in a situation where you can’t take action. The situation will resolve itself in some way. You will either be removed from the situation or the other people or situation will be removed. If you’re not able to make a change. Look at your life and see where else your not happy. If by changing that situation, if your able too. It will start a domino effect and other things will start to change as well. These are the easiest ways to start to take back your power in your life.

The gifts can be quite humbling, but its whats needed for you to grow on a personal level. So write out what you’re trying to achieve or where you want to go. The map will be provided in time as you start to put one foot in front of the other on your own personal journey.

Inspiration

If you’re a play write, composer or conductor of an orchestra. Next time you’re searching for inspiration. Check out your local food plants. The machinery will get you to thinking, Some parts sound like a big drum, others of a snare drum. It will take your song writing to a different level.

There are some parts that remind you of an opening movie with the big build up of the drum section. Nature has a lot of songs that haven’t been written yet too. There is music everywhere if you choose to pay attention and listen.

Musicals that are yet unwritten. Music can be found in everyday life. I remember my love birds getting all excited when they heard nature sound on a cd. Especially the part where the other birdies were chirping. They were so cute with their little vocals adding in to the conversation.

Even if you’re not a musician, you will find rhythms and beats all around you.

Are You Good At Receiving?

When did the money or prosperity dry up in your life? Was it when you were a child? Teen? Adult? Did you start to shut it down when you met a person? All of us are born into prosperity. It’s our birthright, the Universe doesn’t pick and choose who to dole that out to. You can be born into a family that isn’t prosperous. When did people start taking away your money. Pay close attention to this question. It has meaning. Money is energy and in this time it is power. It is a form of your personal power.

It’s no accident, that abusers target anything that means personal empowerment for you. This can happen in the family dynamics or personal relationships. Sometimes both. Psychology teaches us that abusers, beat down their victims mentally, physically and emotionally. Spirit has been on me to write this, it was a matter of what exactly to write and how. Many victims leave abusive relationships, be they family or work. It usually comes down to what is the last straw? What line is being crossed and then they will find the will power and strength that they never knew they had.

Sometimes its about having a good therapist on the sidelines to cheer you on. It can finally give you the strength to believe in yourself. When you start to take back your personal power the Universe will start to help you more and more. It will give you bread crumbs at first. If you can listen carefully. The Universe does not shout, it whispers after all you have free will. It will give you subtle nudges. People will give or offer things to you. You just have to be open to receiving. It will also let you know who has agendas and who does not.

Yes, there actually are people in this world who offer things to people with no strings attached. Hard to believe, isn’t it! Just as you give to people who you truly want to give too. This is not about guilt! If you have someone asking for a handout and you don’t want to give to them. DON’T! It’s being true to yourself. This is not about shaming or guilting. Churches are very good at manipulation, they’ve had lots of practice. Don’t let anyone guilt or shame you. Once you take back your personal power, you become stronger as an individual. You become self-confident, you stop listening to gossip that is destructive to another person and yourself. You start to look at what you can create for yourself.

When you start to allow yourself to receive great things start to open up for you. Opportunities, meeting great people and your friends will change; because your starting to grow as a person. The key is to get rid of people who like to tear you down even if their family. Start taking those classes that you’ve always wanted to take. Even if its only baby steps. By changing and growing you bring in new experiences that make you a much better person. It is about balancing the giving and receiving. If you’ve done all that, but your still going through hell. It’s not necessarily karma. It’s about finding out, when you started to shut down your prosperity.

We shut down our prosperity, out of self-preservation sometimes. We might be surrounded by jealous and petty people who get off on picking apart other people. This is true if you always found money or things just always fell into your lap without any effort. When did that start to change for you?

Going Within

There are many of us, who have no clue who we really are? We don’t know how life works for us. What do I mean by that? Well most of us have been surrounded by others and never had a moment to intimately get to know ourselves. If you’re an empath, this can be its own kind of hell. Picking up everyone’s shit. Thinking that your depressed when your picking up on the people who live with you. Having headaches that aren’t yours.

You might have no idea what I’m talking about. Everyone should be required to live by themselves to actually get to know themselves. This means finding out what stuff is really yours and what is not. What stuff is just bleeding off another and dumping onto you. One thing, that I’ve learned is that the things I used to think were mine. Were in fact someone elses. That means facing the dark side of yourself and giving it a great big wet one.

Society, likes to shove all their dogma down our throats as though it is a fact. When really it is a form of control and shaming. A way to make people feel like shit about themselves so they won’t stand up for themselves. Won’t have more self-confidence. Once you intimately get to know yourself. You will never go back.  You learn that those parts, that you’ve been told are un-loveable are really strengths that have yet to be accepted.

When you start to accept all of who you are? You will find that you are finally becoming a whole person. That part of yourself that you wanted to eliminate will stop having its tantrums; when you finally accept it and allow it to play in more healthy ways. Sounds like parenting a child! In a way, it very much is. Reading parenting books might sound crazy but if you want to win this war that will be your best course.

This will help you integrate your shadow side, it will allow you to get to know yourself without judgement. Everyone hates to be judged, the shadow is no different. Schedule time with yourself so that you can start to allow it to heal and play. Think you’re the only one that didn’t get the manual on how the world works for you. Trying to move forward when no doors or window will open up. Many will say it’s all about taking action. If you’ve already taken many actions. Then you might want to examine what area of your life hasn’t had attention for sometime.

This answer might be about getting out in nature. It might be about actually taking time to enjoy live instead of allowing it to pass you by. When was the last time you actually played. Play isn’t only for children. After all that demon that you call your shadow didn’t just come out of no where. It came from being ignored and suppressed because it’s not acceptable. It is part of you whether you like it or not. It will come out less with less drama when it’s allowed to play more.

Play also allows you to move forward when everything else has been tried. Especially when your stuck tight and not knowing what you’re doing wrong. Play can be playing ball, listening to music, playing musical instruments. Writing, drawing or even painting. When we get out of balance our lives can suddenly seem like its hitting the pavement.

Most of us, were never taught what balance is? We only start to realize its out of control, when it starts to take on a life of its own. This is why the key is to get to know yourself so you can try to steer your life in the direction you want it to go.

Trying New Things?

There is nothing wrong with trying new things as long as it’s not triggering anxiety. If you’re trying something way out of your comfort zone. You might want to evaluate if it’s just the learning curve or if there financial risk that’s associated with it.

If you already have the foundation in place that’s one thing. If you don’t have any of the skill sets and its unfamiliar territory. Maybe its time to take a step back and not venture into this venture.

Trying new things should never cause severe anxiety attacks. If it does your not on the right track. Always listen to your inner guidance. It’s there for a reason. New things, should give you excitement or a calmness. These are internal gauges to know if your just spreading your wings a bit.

The advice from many books about, how if you don’t understand something. Don’t invest in it is a very wise one. If your going to try something out of your comfort zone, do it in baby steps. This way with each step you are building your confidence and not jumping off a cliff. There are so many ways we each can grow as a person each day. This growth can come in learning, reading or experiencing something new.

Make a list and mark it one through ten. One being easy or in your personal comfort zone. Ten being a bit of a stretch for you. The tenth one might be broken down into bite size pieces until can accomplish it with ease.

Romance

Our melting pot culture sometimes leaves much to be desired. Especially when it comes to romance; because the US’s is composed of many sub-cultures. There is no standard norms as a culture for Americans. We each bring our sub-culture norms to the table, allowing for many hurts and misunderstandings. Be it table manners? How people raise their children? How we show love and affection. The list is endless.

Men and women, have misunderstandings in general just on how they think and react to situations. Now add the sub-culture to romance and based on their own sub-cultures you can have a variety of expectations. Varying from realistic to expectations from families to romantic partners.

Is it any wonder there is a high divorce rate and lack of satisfaction with relationships in general. Depending on the culture, some people can come off as stand offish. Other’s being interpreted as overly affectionate and depending on societies trends. These cultures can be looked as acceptable or lacking based on the popularity of the trends.

There seems to be so much lack of satisfaction and judgment going on in relationships. It doesn’t seem to matter if its young couples or older couples. There seems to be such a clash of expectations in the courting ritual. It’s almost amazing when the right couples finally find each other.

The perfect romance starts in the brain and when the reality starts to clash. The end of the relationship isn’t far behind. One starts to wonder if the ideal romance isn’t some unrealistic script written off the pages in Hollywood where none of the characters could ever live up those expectations in the real world?

One starts to wonder if it is truly fate that plays a hand in matching up the two people or something else entirely.

Valentine’s Day

The Card companies would make you think that they created this day to be thoughtful to other people. The same for the rest of the retail industry with their spin on it.

Whether your coupled up or not. Be sure to enjoy or own this day just for you. This day is special, because it’s a celebration of taking time for yourself and making this day your own. You get to decide how you will spend it.

Just make sure that you have fun and go the extra mile for yourself. If you have pets it makes it the perfect day to spend sometime just enjoying the time you spend with them and doing nice things for yourself that you might not usually do.

Society seems to think that it some how has the right to make people feel like shit about themselves. When people think about doing something nice for themselves it’s usually accompanied by guilt. This day is not about asking for permission. It’s about just doing things, because you want to and not having to explain or justify your choices!

So take some time to plan or be spontaneous and see how your day unfolds.
