This word is not in my vocabulary

Shame hates it when we reach out and tell our story. It hates having words wrapped around it—it can’t survive being shared. Shame loves secrecy. The most dangerous thing to do after a shaming experience is hide or bury our story. When we bury our story, the shame metastasizes Brene Browne

Confession or maybe the better term is pet peeve - using the word shame loosely! OMG I just refuse, I cannot! In our culture it is used often, someone is telling a story " Oh I was so shame, girl" someone laughs at a joke "Shame" I refuse to use it, just refuse to use the word, its not in my vocabulary! I want it to remain outside of my consciousness whether in a joke or not, it may just be my issues but hey I am owning it!
"Shame" I have seen stop so many actions- I have heard numerous times " I am too shame to do that" said just like that! Huh? What are you "shame" about? I absolutely refuse to use the word! Okay rant over
Shame says something is wrong with me, and hey as India Arie says " I know my creator didn't make no mistakes on me" so I am not or will never be "shame"
End of rant!

Give your body a break

no one else can give you what you have not yet given to yourself.
If you do not have what you crave in life right now, no one else can give it to you. And if you haven’t been able to give it to yourself, then what?
In my experience, what is needed is a new perspective. We must learn to see ourselves and our lives from a different place. Neale Donald Walsh

The body keeps score and it always wins- I heard that today and it resonated with me.  The lady went on to describe that we hold on to things and then the body says "hey, no more" and when it says that the body breaks down through pain, illness or it just stops and shuts down! So in the main, when we let it go the body is free to do what it is supposed to do
And I am referring here to the internal work, because it all starts inside, it is really inside out.

So the thing that you are holding on to, let it go, hell even the tax authorities only "chase" you for a certain time, after they let it go! When you keep the things in it leaves no room for your good to come in, for new things to be attached and find it's way into your life
Let it go, give your body a break!
Try a new thing, have a new thought, make another choice.

Call Forth a New Reality

"calamities" are blessings, not yet understood by the Mind.  Neale Donald Walsh

On my journeys, I make it a priority to pay attention, because lessons come in from everywhere! And with this in mind I want to share that all experiences have value, every single one
What messes us up is our perception and how we want it to look and how we believe things ought to happen. Leave the judgement aside and look for the lesson.

Whatever it is that is now presenting itself as part of your creation, own it, claim it, bless it, be thankful for it. Seek not to condemn it
If there is some aspect you find you do not enjoy, bless it and move on. Choose again
and end the moaning and complaining, do it magnificently, think a new thought, call forth a new reality!

What are your rituals?

Inspiration doesn't turn its back. You do. I did. The only difference between periods of frolicking with inspiration and those empty of it is OUR daily choices. Do you cultivate a warm and inviting lifestyle for inspiration to come into? Do you open the door and invite it in? Do you stay open and connected to your deep sense of self on a daily basis? Maxie McCoy (love her work!)

What are your rituals? What are some of the things that you do daily, consistently which brings about the spark, the connection to your highest self, that fuels the inspiration that lives within you? What are the things that make it into your daily life, consciously? I mean the thing that you do everyday which brings a smile to your face, that ignites the fire within?
You don't have any? Well sisters and brothers, why not? Why would you prefer to not do something consistently which inspires you, motivates you, reaches into your soul? It could be as simple as a walk in the park, a football game on the greens with your friends, a green daily smoothie, candles and a book in the tub, listening to some uplifting music while in the shower, whatever it is
I love to wake up early go onto my porch write in my journal and read something inspirational while eating watermelon and  bananas and share it with the birds who come around now like my own personal friends. I write in my gratitude journal as well, I do it everyday wherever I am it's too bad I can't take my bird friends with me!
Your rituals.....
Figure them out. Commit to them. And connect like you've never connected before to your energy.

Make friends with now

When you are Present, when your attention is fully in the Now, that Presence will flow into and transform what you do. There will be quality and power in it. You are present when what you are doing is not primarily a means to an end (money, prestige, winning) but fulfilling in itself, when
there is joy and aliveness in what you do. And, of course, you cannot be present unless you become friendly with the present moment. That is the basis for effective action, uncontaminated by negativity. Ekhart Tolle

Make friends with now, it is one of my absolute favorite lessons, it translates to me the following
1. Pay attention
2. Be present
3. Accept the reality of the situation in the moment as it is, not as you want, think or believe it ought to be. Acceptance does not mean that you like it, it means you recognize that this is what it is and make peace with that in order to assist you in deciding what is the best way forward
4. Make a decision - change the situation, if you could or leave it, Moaning does nothing to advance me into a place of peace.

I find myself saying it when I am in a bit of a jam! "Make friends with now, sis" and it triggers something, sometimes it may even be a little bit of a cry before action is taken and other times it may be the biggest bellyful of laughter! then its action time
Works for me! Try it and tell me what lessons you can share on your own journey

Ego Lessons

When you become present your life acknowledges your presence. Being present is key to letting the universe know you mean business, ready for abundance and purpose. Living a life of false layers will cover your direct connection to the universe. You might as well wear an invisibility cloak, well if they had such a thing. Unleash your ghost and dance with them darlings. Speak with them truth. Show up. Entirely. Unapologetically. The good and the ugly. The moment you step into your true self is the moment you become Limitless... Author Love Juliet

The ego teaches us that things like credentials,prestige,money and worldly power are more important than love. It counsels that we are separate from others, that we have to compete to get ahead, and that we're not quite good enough the way we are. And by our thinking such things, we perpetuate a world in which they seem true.
Such things such as credentials, prestige,money and worldly power refer to our external selves, and our external selves are not who we are. Once we know this, we escape that world and begin to realize that we are here to love, forgive,serve and heal. "all those fancy titles and things you own says something about you, but they can never be who you are, once you know who you are,you will always always be very fine" Peace

Follow the path in your heart

Talk the way you talk. Think the way you think. Wear your scars. Do what you were called to do, not what you want to do. Follow the path in your heart, not the path that you see many others travel. Tony Gaskins

Today I told someone I have a fake person shield and blocker, the fake ones just approach and bound off the shield, they just cannot come around me and penetrate the shield. She laughed, but I truly believe that I do,  I see them coming and I know the shield will come up and either block them or block me. I may not even know what happened, I may have genuinely like the person but the shield doesn't care, it just works and the person cannot penetrate it no matter what I may try all I might but the person cannot penetrate! The lesson is though is compassion, and to show love to them - from afar.......
Why do we put such unrealistic expectations on ourselves? there is a different in being yourself and being perfect. Who's perfect any ole how? Newsflash! No one!!!

So show up, as you are, open mind, willing spirit, ego in check and see what magic happens
There is nothing to prove
There is nothing to lose
There is no one to impress
There is just you, showing up in all your magnificence that you were born with, all of us, that we have forgotten or never told or just don't know

Discipline - be a disciple for it

It's a matter of discipline - It's all about intent - Neale Donald Walsh

Discipline your mind - think the thoughts that provide you with the life you desire, read the books that provide the information, inspiration, and knowledge, watch the TV with intention rather than to numb yourself from your own real life. 
Discipline your mouth - say what you need to say, the truth, and say it with love. 
Discipline your actions - it may be hard, it's worth it because hard now means getting what you desire later
Discipline your body - what's going in. Eat well- eat for nourishment, feed your body well. Who are you letting in that space? 
Discipline your environment - order - order is the law! order in your mind translates to order in your environment and order in your life. The Universe is orderly, night will not fall during the day and the moon will not shine in the day, the seasons follow each other
Discipline is a word associated with pain and punishment and for that gets a bad wrap. Discipline is such a key quality required for success and without it the journey becomes tougher.
Discipline is the quality that allows you to get up early when you are tired to complete a task, to say no and set boundaries, to focus on your vision and shape your own mind!
Discipline - be a disciple for it

Expect the Unexpected and Handle It

Nothing in our lives can happen to us unless our soul is in agreement to experience it. There are no victims, each of us are responsible for our own creations Sabrina Reur

I was thinking today that my life will be so boring if I knew everything that was going to happen and when! I love surprises, it is confirmed! I love it when unexpected things pop up daily and I get to experience all the feelings that come with them, and not all of the experiences are the happy smiley type, however, I get to see my response, which many times show me where I am and what I am attracting into my space. My response to people and situations is up to me, that much I know, people do what they do based on who they are and their experiences and lessons and so do I and my vibrations attact like people and situations so when I am on a low vibe- continuously, I get a wake up call
So I hit another car,not paying attention because of what? I accepted to to a job that my intuition told me not to do, I was bitching to high heaven and making up excuses to do it goingagainst my gut- for days. I then decided that ok I am not doing it and picked up the phone to call and make apologies for it, as I picked up the phone they called at the same time I thought hmm they must be reading my mind, low and behold they were calling to "make sure that I come today" and blah blah blah I meekly said yes, jumped in the car and bam, destroyed the bumper!
And the best part is the car I was driving is not mine! So pissed I was
Then I said hmmm according to Ms Lauren Hill - consequence is no coincidence
So,here's the lesson - listen to your gut, say no and mean it, say it nicely if you can, raise the vibe and know that you can handle the unexpected!
