What I Know for Sure

What+I+know+for+Sure+(1)GREAT QUESTION–WHAT I KNOW FOR SURE? 

Oprah has always asked this question in many of her interviews. She then took the idea and turned it into a book (great little read).

I wanted to share some of her great quotes and have you ask yourself…What do you know for sure? It is a question that makes you really go within to seek real answers. If you take the time to truly, honestly answer, it will be a beautiful gift for your life.

“Before I could challenge my fear and begin changing what I believed about myself, I had to admit that, yes, I had always been afraid–and that my fear was a form of slavery.” -Oprah

“So long as you’re still worried about what others think of you, you are owned by them. Only when you require no approval from outside yourself can you own yourself.” -Neale Donald Walsch

“What if you learned to live with it [Fear], to ride its wave to heights you never knew were possible?”  -Oprah

“What I know for sure is this: You are built not to shrink down to less but to blossom into more. To be more splendid. To be more extraordinary. To use every moment to fill yourself up.”  -Oprah

“I’ve learned that the more stressful and chaotic things are on the outside, the calmer you need to get on the inside. It’s the only way you can connect with where your spirit is leading you.”  -Oprah

“What is the truth of your life? It’s your duty to know. In order to find out, know that the truth is that which feels right and good and loving.”  -Oprah

“I prayed to be more resolved about being fully conscious, allowing every experience to bring me closer to the deepest essence of life.”  -Oprah

“I want to be lean and clean for the future, dust off my wings. I know for sure that doing so will make it easier to fly.”  -Oprah

“Let your life awaken in you. Whatever your challenge–let it be an open door to your holiest revelations about yourself, an invitation to your best life.”  -Oprah

 

May your day be filled with deep questions that awaken parts of you that were sleeping. Life is a daily ritual of digging deep within to uncover the valuable essence of your one, precious life.  -Peace, Love and Light to you today.  -H

Sobering 9/11

njdg1tawqxjbq964frl2Many people will never forget where they were or what was going on around them on 9/11. It is so humbling to walk back in your mind and remember how paralyzed our nation was and then how joined it became.

I was living in a tiny, country town, Shelley, Idaho. It was a place of acres and acres of potato fields and very few people. I will never forget how at that time in our nation, it became a place of American flags on every car, people honking and cheering on our local fire engines and public safety, giant flags painted on barns…it was a beautiful thing to see a community join together in such patriotism.

I don’t think anyone will forget the images that kept replaying on the televisions across the country, the sobering stories of everyday heroes, unbelievable stories of survival and the heartbreaking realizations of loss.

Every 9/11 is a mix of emotions and this morning I woke up to an email that informed me of my dear neighbor with six young kids (under the age of 14) who just found out she has breast cancer and its spreading. My heart ached and I immediately ran over to be of service and see what I could do.

Any tragedy is sobering, so I ask of you on this day of 9/11…find those things within your life that you daily take for granted and give thanks. Hold your family a little tighter. Reach out to someone in need. Take something to your local fire department or public servant and say thank you for their service.

We are all in this one life together, so if we can remember this daily, then when any tragedy hits your family, your neighbor, your community, your country, then you will be ready to take on anything TOGETHER.

TOGETHER: Here is something soo interesting: [I posted this years ago, but it has always stayed with me on 9/11–shows how connected we truly are]

Out of the horror of 9/11 some amazing scientific discoveries were made–our satellites positioned thousands of miles above the earth–every 30 minutes the satellites send a signal that tells us how strong the magnetic field of the earth really is. It ebbs and flows each day. On 9/11 there was a huge spike and the researchers had never seen a spike like this before or on both satellites. They were trying to figure out what on earth happened & this led the researchers to understand the collective heart-based response, The human emotion that was outpouring in a particular time of that day. It was so powerful that it coupled with the magnetic field of the earth. It showed how everything is connected to the field. It took a tragedy to understand the connection, but what heartmath is trying to decide is if they can utilize the same connection without tragedy.
Can heart-based coherence bring people together in peace. Heartmath has a coalition has sensors throughout the world trying to decipher human emotions trying to see how to bring about human coherence throughout the world.

May we always seek to have grateful hearts for the world we live in, the relationships we are gifted to share and the love to freely give—always.

Peace, Love and Light to you on this day of 9/11.  -H
