Do You Believe in Friday the 13th?

fridaythe13th

Are you superstitious?  Do you believe in bad omens?  Do you walk around a ladder instead of underneath it?  If a black cat crossed your path, would it bother you?  Do you believe in Friday the 13th and all the hullabaloo about it?  Have you felt like you ever had bad luck on a Friday the 13th?  Do you think you are manifesting it?

I’m really interested in reading what you think so please comment below!

Personally I’m not bothered by Friday the 13th.  I lived in Spain years ago and for Spaniards, it was Tuesday the 13th which was the problem and not Friday, so I guess I’ve simply adopted that way of thinking.

But for those of you who are fear leaving your home today, going to work, traveling, investing or doing anything outside of your comfort zone, you are not alone.  You may have something called…

friggatriskaidekaphobia:  fear of Friday the 13th!

Yes, it’s true.  It’s a real phobia and there are many people who suffer from it.  So I guess I’m asking, are you one of them?  No judgment here, you know I love to connect with you!

Do You Pray?

prayers

“All I know is that when I pray,

coincidences happen;

they don’t happen.”

Who’s Writing Your Life Story?

pen

“When writing the story of your life,

don’t let anyone else hold the pen.” ~ Unknown

You are the author of your own life story.  It is YOU who holds the pen and the key and the power of choice.  For all of those who feel helpless (and I’ve been there) and unable to move forward to do what you want, to get what you deserve and to find peace and happiness in your life ~ now’s your chance to take back your power of the pen in your own life.

When I say, ‘take back your power,’ I am not meaning it in a bad way or a way in which you hurt others around you.  Oh no, far from that.  What I mean is that you take back the power of making your own good choices,  owning your inner strength, doing/being what increases your happiness, facing your responsibility to yourself and to others for whom you are responsible and for simply, lovingly picking up the pen to write your own life story.

You are not a prisoner in this life, but you can very well be your own jailer.

Too often we allow others the power in our lives; we let them make the decisions for how we will live.  Sometimes it’s out of fear or laziness, but carelessly tossing the power of living your life to the best of your ability is a mistake.  However, it is a mistake for which there’s an eraser that can change what happens from this moment forward.  You must be courageous though, you may not act with fear in your heart.  Instead be fearless, be loving, be kind, walk with truth, honesty and integrity.  See your world spherically and not linearly.  Look around at all you can be grateful for and then bless those gifts.  You have the presents of presence today and always.  Now let’s plan a life that you enjoy living.

What makes you happy?  What makes you sad?  What do you wish you could do?  What are your dreams?  What do you not want in your life?  What do you want more of and less of in your amazing life?  These are questions that take time to answer and you need to allow that time to let those questions sink into your mind and body.  Let them settle in a bit and find peace before answering.  Then allow your pen to write the answers down without questioning, without monitoring, without judging.  Let a free flowing pen ink your dreams and desires.  Whatever you see and want, you can achieve if you believe.

So believe that this is your special life.  Don’t throw your power away!  Use it, pick up your pen and write your best life’s story because you can!  This is your life my dears!  Go enjoy it!

Shine On!

The Secret of Success

73167707_

“People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. 

When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success.”
—Norman Vincent Peale

In stretching out of my comfort zone these last few weeks, I’ve found that when I let go of all of the stuff I carry around in my head, you know, those nagging thoughts of negativity, I’m finding that success is coming my way.  I’m becoming less attached the the outcomes and more involved in the taking of baby steps towards my goals!  Are you having the same experiences?

Have  you been stretching these past few weeks with me?  Are you finding that your life is opening up a bit more for the better?  Let me know what’s going on with you!  If I can help in any way, you know I’ve got my hand held out for you!  When I focus on simply stretching out of my comfort zones everyday in whatever shape that takes, I am finding that I am enjoying life more ~ I am having more success ~ I am making more connections with others ~ and in turn, I am able to help others to find their success as well!

Norman Vincent Peale wrote many inspirational books, one being  The Power of Positive Thinking.  Even though this book it was originally published in 1952,  its fundamental truths continue to hold today.

So, on this Happy Monday, I thought I’d start the week off with a bit of success for us all!  I am grateful to Paul Mark Sutherland for today’s quote ~ please click here  to be directed to his blog called Goal Habits.com which is one of my favorites that I read every morning for inspiration!

Today is…

70024452_

Today is a day of completion.  Thy will be done today Lord not mine. 

Miracle follows miracle.  I give thanks for this perfect day. 

Please give me a definite lead.  Let me know if there is anything I need to do.

The above is the set of affirmations which came to me this morning when I hit the snooze button on my alarm clock.  The memorized phrases came unbidden as they often do and as usual, I simply went with the flow, repeating them until the alarm blared again, announcing it was really time to get up!

I’ve spoken about affirmations before in many posts.  If you search Louise Hay or Florence Scovel Shinn on my blog (below I’ve given you a few links!) you’ll find oodles of information in case you’re interested.  For me, affirmations are a way to psychically, emotionally and sometimes perhaps physically, change the channel in my mindset.

I can only speak for myself, but there have been times where my mind repetitively blocks the flow of energy to my body by concentrating on a thought that’s not healthy for me.  So when I realize this, I simply change the channel by introducing another thought, another affirmation.  It’s like dealing with a child who’s attracted to the flame of a candle.  You simply take her hand and lead her to something that’s more interesting so that she forgets about the allure of the flame and changes her focus to something less dangerous and more positive.  As a parent, you probably know what I mean, don’t you?

So I find that my mind sometimes needs a little reset button ~ even a delete button and I’ve learned how to change the channel in order to stay on track.  It’s really quite simple.  I have an arsenal of affirmations which speak to me.  I listed them and can pull up the file as needed.  Of course, I’ve been doing this for awhile now so many of them are already memorized.  It’s like checking the file cabinet in my mind.

Here are a few I use often:

Divine Love floods my consciousness with health and every cell in my body is filled with light.

Money comes to me under grace in perfect ways. 

I give thanks that I am abundantly supported.

I am blessed beyond my wildest dreams.

I give thanks that the life that is mine is filled with love,

laughter, health, wealth and happiness for all.

I am thankful that I am led today where I am most helpful

and I share happiness wherever I go.

I hope this helps you as it has helped me in my life.  What do you do to reset your brain when you’re worried, scared or sad?  Connect with me and let’s share so that we can all benefit!

Happy Thursday to YOU!

Shine On!

Hearing Heartbeats

69132261_

The Art Of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Philipp Sendker

I love how when you allow your life to flow, you receive what you need.  The adage that the teacher comes when the student is ready also comes to mind as the above book came to me recently and I must tell you that I devoured it.  I mean truly ~ I started reading it yesterday and I finished it today!  There are not many times that I am so enthralled with a book that I neglect other things while I feel so compelled to read because it is so special.

A poignant and inspirational love story set in Burma, The Art of Hearing Heartbeats spans the decades between the 1950s and the present. When a successful New York lawyer suddenly disappears without a trace, neither his wife nor his daughter Julia has any idea where he might be…until they find a love letter he wrote many years ago, to a Burmese woman they have never heard of. Intent on solving the mystery and coming to terms with her father’s past, Julia decides to travel to the village where the woman lived. There she uncovers a tale of unimaginable hardship, resilience, and passion that will reaffirm the reader’s belief in the power of love to move mountains. (from Amazon)

On page 244, there came a paragraph which struck a chord in me and perhaps when you read it as well, it may do the same to you.  At times, love is difficult to see in our lives and it takes hearing the heartbeats of our loved ones in order to know that their love exists.  Perhaps you will find solace, love and understanding below as I did.

“Because we see only what we already know.  We project our own capacities `for good as well as evil’ ~ onto the other person.  Then we acknowledge as love primarily those things that correspond to our own image thereof.  We wish to be loved as we ourselves would love.  Any other way makes us uncomfortable.  We respond with doubt and suspicion.  We misinterpret the signs.  We do not understand the language.  We accuse.  We assert that the other person does not love us.  But perhaps he merely loves us in some idiosyncratic way that we fail to recognize.  I hope you will understand what I mean once I have finished my story.”

In the wake of my father’s death and in the healing of my heart as well as watching many friends recently (both in life and blogosphere) deal with the same circumstances, I feel the need to ignite the peace of understanding in our lives ~ hence this post today.   If you are interested, you can click below on the picture of the book and it will bring you to Amazon where you can buy it via kindle or hard cover as you wish.

Keep Loving!

Sunday’s Inspirational Gal

69200079_

This morning, I happened upon the story of an inspiring 16 year old Irish gal who in September of 2012, was awarded the People of the Year Award in Dublin, Ireland.  Her story can be found on her website which I included below ~ as well as many pictures from her FB page which you can find at http://www.nolimbsnolimits.net/ which is her official website!  Joanne was born with a rare physical disability called Total Amelia which means she was born without all four limbs even though there is no medical explanation for this occurrence.  Neither Joanne nor her family have ever allowed this to hold her back.  In fact, she is quite inspiring and I highly recommend that you click on her website above!

Words fail me in telling you her story, so I’ll let Joanne do it on her website.  Please, take a moment today to fill up your spiritual cup with a dose of love, extraordinary human spirit and endless possibility!  The word is not impossible, it’s…

I’m Possible!

Shine On!
