Projects

What projects have you put off because of time or money? Are they secretly bugging you. You can only be in denial for so long. Are you always exhausted and that’s why you haven’t gotten to it. Sometimes, when we take small steps on small projects it starts to get big results. It can be mowing the lawn, cutting back plants that have gotten out of control.

The end goal is to pay attention to what makes you feel lighter or happy. It starts to build the momentum. The feelings of overwhelm, can drain anyone. Once you start to take back some control where ever you can. You will have more energy to get small goals done. So if you have a lot of things that have been bugging you and want to get to many goals. Take a look at which one’s will lead to the end result. It’s sort of like unkinking a chain. So decide if you want to knock out the small goals first to help build your stamina.

If some of those tasks aren’t your cup of tea. If it can be hired out, that might be the best option. You get the feeling of accomplishment without having to exert the energy. If you thrive on DIY stuff more power to you. Don’t have any more DIY projects. See if you can barter with people, can you get so many services for your work?

Stop Chasing Someone Else’s Dream

I had a client who wanted to be wealthy. I asked him what would that look like? Right away he assumed that it had to be the big house or fast cars and lots of money. When he started to think about it, he started to realized that it might look different for each person. He’d never really given it much thought. It was like an abstract thought that you just toss around carelessly.

When we started to nail it down, it was a certain amount of money that would actually make him feel wealthy or successful.  I say this because wealth looks different for each person. I have done parties for people in my mind would be considered wealthy, but next to a billionaire would not. It’s all relative to your personal experience. Actually a couple of these people in this group, tried the Corporate route and found out that it made them miserable. One of those people found that he actually like to teach and coach children. That was what made his soul sing and brought him happiness.

The beautiful part about this group was that even though their friends found happiness in different ways. These friends stayed true to each other. If there was a bridal shower. They might use the friend’s house to have the party, but the friends that could financially afford to pay for the catering did so. No one was using each other. These friends stayed friends because of their friendships not over money.

I think it’s so easy to assume things about people without knowing the facts. I see this with people who are narrow-minded. I say narrow-minded, because not all people who are poor think this way. There is a huge differences in the churches these people go to as well. The churches, temples, (other religious types) that people who have wealth go to support the idea that the highest honor you can show your creator is to be successful and wealthy and that poverty is a sin.

People that go to churches in areas that have high poverty will be very shocked by the statement above. That’s because their churches like to harp on the evils of money and try their very best to keep the people in their community in poverty. This is why the wealthy stay wealthy in their thoughts and deeds. Totally different mind-set. When I was taking my prosperity course, I found this very obvious in the books I was required to read. I was very shocked when it said in black and white that poverty was a sin and that if you were showing proper respect to your creator you should try to be the very best you could be by being happy and successful and wealthy.

Here is where Happy, Successful and Wealthy are open to interpretation. This is not to compare you to someone else. This is to compare you only to yourself. When you chase someone else’s dream, you will never win or be happy. When you chase your own dream, you will find that somethings that you thought would make you happy might not. You then change course til you find out what does make you happy. This is what is known as Success! The wealth thing is open to interpretation, one person might be happy living on 50K a year. Another might need 150K a year and still another 3 Million?

When you actually get a life of your own, you stop caring about other people and how they live. You get clearer about what makes you happy, your goals and dreams and what does success look like to you. You start to make a plan on how to obtain those goals. You start to think about getting a mentor that has succeeded in what you’re trying to accomplish so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.

You get a support group that understands your dreams and doesn’t try to tear you or your dreams down. Mastermind groups are great for this. This is how one begins to make one’s dream a reality! You are not put on this planet to live out someone elses dream either. If you choose to be a martyr then that’s your choice. Life is for living!

Awakening & Doing What I Love

Awakening & Doing What I Love
By Penny Johnson | Published: January 1, 2010

My journey started when I was finally ready to start a master’s program. I knew there would be changes. I’ve had people ask me if I thought they would enjoy taking intuitive classes. I always respond: “If you like your life the way it is, it will definitely change once you start taking intuitive classes. You won’t be the same person that you were.”

Yes, we change and grow, but the relationships that we value might not be there any more. Just because we are changing doesn’t give us the right to make other people change. Especially if they’re happy the way they are.

My day job started to get more and more affected by the economy as it started to spiral out of control. I knew when I started my master’s program that I might not be able to stay in the corporate arena. I was getting closer to completing my classes. I was reading a book for one of my classes on near-death experiences, and suddenly had a person show up at one of the expos to tell me about his near-death experience and how it changed his life. It was so spiritually weird, in a good way.

I was starting another class on manifesting, about energy shifts, and again the synchronicities appeared. I would think about something and it would show up in about three days. I had known that my day job was going away. What I didn’t realize was how bad the economy had begun to get. It’s much easier to be objective if you are living it, rather than only observing it.
When my day job finally bit the dust, I was stunned for about two days — and then I was incredibly happy! If I could have done cartwheels, I think I would have! I felt so light! I had been feeling lighter when I was away from my job, and when I would have to go back, I would feel heavy and anxious.
I am trying to see what will be open to me. I have started to write things that I love to write for myself. I have started to enjoy my solitude, and really enjoy when I make a meal for myself.

Not sure what the future holds? That’s the funny thing about us psychics. Even we go to other psychics, to get a different perspective. I was told that I would be able to do my work full time? We’ll see? I’m almost done with my studies — and boy, am I ready to be done. I have loved the journey to getting here!

I do love doing what I do, and my clients are always so incredible. I am incorporating more healing into my practice and I’m getting very excited about that. I find that it really is true that sometimes we are the teacher and other times the student. It will be incredibly interesting to see where I end up. I know better than to say that I want “x” because I will usually end up with “z.”

You can have your plan, but sometimes that destination has other things to teach you.
