Illusions are not Real

Illusion never changed
Into something real
I'm wide awake and I can see
The perfect sky is torn - Natalie Imbruglia

An Illusion  is defined as a false idea or belief. An instance of a wrong or misinterpreted perception. 
A Course in Miracles says illusions are the main reason we make the detour from love into fear- because we make decisions on illusions- false ideas, false beliefs, wrong or misinterpreted perceptions
How many times have I ran off on a tangent believing that either someone is "doing something to me" or "the thing is all wrong and needs to be corrected" based on illusions - oh many many times
I have not made a conscious decision to ask many questions - much to the dismay of others, I want to be clear that I am moving ahead based on the truth rather than on illusions
I haven't mastered the art yet especially with people that I am interested in having a relationship with but I continue to do the work!
Asking questions helps in reducing assumptions, it i…

Rest More

It’s a continual fight that requires some serious daily rituals: hard work, exercise, meditation, reading, writing, and talking with people that love us. 
I came down with the flu this week. There is always a lesson that comes along with me and getting the flu. I know it because it is one of the things I absolutely cannot stand! getting ill. My own belief system is that getting the flu or ill is a manifestation of something that I am not ready, willing or able to deal with and heal I know, I know, it is an extreme position to take, it is truly how I feel The manifestation of the flu and me being unable to move around to me indicates: not taking enough time to rest not paying attention to my eating habits worrying unecessarily about lack - lack of money, lack of time, lack of work bad habits poor health choices
so the lesson is not beating up myself when I do get the flu. Life happens and this situation is feedback to do something different, to change something, rest more, eat better, sleep mor…

I surrender control

I surrender control, fear of control, lack of control, the need to control and all issues related to control at their deepest root and cause, in my mind, heart, life, and in the world.
I declare they be exposed and eliminated under grace.
I surrender attachment to all outcomes that I imagine, demand, fear, require and attempt to control. Iyanla Vanzant
At the beginning of every month I write down what my desired feelings for the month are (usually they are the same, love, contentment, abundance, authenticity, service) then from that I do a check in list which details what are some of the things that I want to come out of those desires (usually they are the same too! I am seeing a pattern here, anyways I digress - get 2 speaking gigs and do my absolute bestest when I am given the opportunity, reduce my debts, and so on)

Lately I have been noticing that these desires are now becoming lists - and I have started getting pretty anxious and sometimes a little under the weather when at the beg…

Feelings Are Guides

You're spending too much time "in your head" these days. How about getting out of your thoughts and into your feelings? You've analyzed it to death. Now it's about moving from your head to your heart. Neale Donald Walsh

Feelings are guides.  A guide shows the way to something or someone or somewhere Your feelings let you know if something hurts, if it feels good, if it is uncomfortable Your head, your mind has its duties but it is never a guide
We analyse a thing to death- sometimes literally overthinking!
We ignore our feelings and tell ourselves it must be or it must not be something else
Your feelings trigger your mind to take action, or not take action then we start overthinking the thing so much that we either move or don't move - total opposite of what we were guided to do why? because many times the feeling is illogical, may times the feeling guides us to doing something that is out of the ordinary, it may guide us to change - and we all know how humans feel about …

THE A IN SELF LOVE

“Like anyone you love, you have to learn to respect yourself and that means becoming a person you’re proud ofone who holds themselves to commitments, shows up when they say they will and takes the needs of others into consideration. Self-love does not mean putting yourself ahead of others without good reason.” Kris Cage


WHAT HAPPENS AFTER YOU HAVE REACHED A POINT OF UNCONDITIONAL SELF LOVE? DOES LIFE JUST RUN SMOOTHLY? IS THERE CONTINUAL BLISS? ARE ALL YOUR PROBLEMS MAGICALLY SOLVED? WELL I WOULD SAY NO UNCONDITIONAL SELF LOVE IS NOT THE ANSWER TO ALL IT REALLY ISN’T UNCONDITIONAL SELF LOVE OFFERS HOPE THE HOPE FOR CONFIDENCE TO DEAL WITH THE CHALLENGES ONE WILL INEVITABLY FACE ON THIS JOURNEY CALLED LIFE DO NOT BE FOOLED INTO THINKING FINDING UNCONDITIONAL SELF LOVE IS THE ULTIMATE FIXER WHAT THIS LOVE DOES IS, IT HOLD YOU ACCOUNTABLE, IT MAKES YOU MORE RESPONSIBLE AND IT LEADS TO MAKING MORE HOPEFUL AND LOVING DECISIONS BOTH FOR YOU AND OTHERS IT DOES NOT GIVE YOU A PASS TO BE A JERK TO OT…

Rise Up

The Universe will not support you in minimizing yourself. Rise Up- Marianne Williamson
I came accross a Facebook Vid yesterday. Awakening One Million. The message resonated with me so much that I stopped dead in my tracks.
The vid said " every thought, every single one you think is a prayer it is a request to the Universe" It demonstrates what you believe about yourself and about your life. Here is the thing- all prayers are answered in some way so when you think, you pray
1. This is hard 2. I can't do this 3. I am alone and I don't have anybody 4. I'm broke 4. I'm tired of this
You pray that pray and it gets answered
How about that?
This is hard is a prayer - it gets answered with yes it is!  How about rephrasing this to I can do this despite the challenge - the answer to the prayer is - yes you can do this
I am broke - the answer is yes you are! thank you

What am I thinking right now? That is a call to the Universe how awesome is that? So much power, so much responsibili…

Do You Have Holiday Rituals?

Get to know yourselves
We spend time looking outside of ourselves to tell us who WE are, Take time to know who you are
Iyanla Vanzant

A very cool lady that I have the previledge of knowing asked me why do I go away and spend time alone over the holidays. The way she asked it I received it with such care and love, there was no judgement attached nor did it felt that she thought I was strange for doing it. For the first time I did not start off answering by being defensive and feeling that I had to justify why I do it.
And what I came up with is - spending time with myself ususally quietly impacts how I live my life that upcoming year, it assists in me getting to know me- what works , what did not work, it gives me time to self correct and self forgive. Christmas time always seemed to me growing up t be such a busy time, lots happening at home, there was always the expectation of paining the house, varnishing the chairs, getting new curtains, people invading the house, cooking. I craved …
