Wow!! Only 7% of what we say is part of our communication. Non verbal communication is the majority of how we communicate. What are you saying with your body language?

True nobility is about being better than you use to be.

“Be faithful to that which exists nowhere else but in yourself.” -French Poet (Wayne Dyer carried this thought with him in his pocket)

We are often addicted to being “BUSY”–we may even put some of our worth in this. We “hideout” in being busy to avoid “FEELING” or dealing with what is really going on inside.

If you knew who walks beside you–on this path that YOU have chose, you could never experience fear or doubt again [taken from Wayne Dyer movie series]

“To worry is to pray from something you really don’t want.” -[Sharon Lechter podcast]

It is a matter of changing your focus to what you do want & to refocus your thought to get rid of the worry.

The word “VICE” is in the word “ADVICE”–it must be there for a reason. It often gives the person on the other end the feeling that you think they don’t know what they are doing. You try to fix and fix with the “ADVICE” since you think you have all the answers.

“Have faith that the world needs what you got.” -Danielle LaPorte

“Your word is your wand. The words you speak create your own destiny.” -Florence Shinn

Abundance is Everywhere!

From a podcast with Jen Louden and Koren M: Jen reminded the listeners that we are animals and there is a part of our brain that when it senses fear or anxiety it goes into the flight or fight mode. She also said–we are prey and we are prayers. It reminded me that no matter what stress or weakness, fear or anxiety comes, we don’t have to be prey, but that we can pray. I like that.

May the path that would serve us best be very CLEAR.

Interesting thought from Martha Beck–She heard a client say “deep rest” when they were expressing feelings of being “depressed” Martha say’s it is a sign of your body and soul that you need nourishment and a deeper level of a deeper rest.

Jonathan Fields ask, “Who can I help today?”  [he was a Lawyer & now Yogi]

Ask yourself, “How has your light been dimmed?” What events (stories) stick with you from your life that seem to dim your divine light? What do you feel in those situations? Why does it still come up for you?? What are your suppose to learn? Why are you immobilized, afraid, stopped, stuck?

“The nuns taught us that there are two ways through life, the one of nature, the other grace.” -Tree of Life

“Make your future dream a present fact by assuming the feeling of the wish fulfilled.” -Neville

“Free will is whether we choose to align with Gods will or not!!” -W Dyer

“No matter what obstacles life gives you. Know you are worthy of love and belonging. No matter what! Life gives us moments of imperfection. We just need to remember and know we are worthy of love and belonging.”  -Brene Brown

A beloved community–What would you bring to the earthly table? What would you bring to nourish the souls of those around you? What richness would be fulfilled? What would you give to enrich their lives?

The crown is in my heart, not on my head. -Shakespeare

“Invitation” vs “Obligation”–there is a different energy when people are there because they want to be.

Post-it commercial states that if you write something down you are 42% more likely to do it.

Hope you find something here to take with you during your day. Life is about getting better each day & when you place something [a quote, a thought, a meaning] within your heart you make it more valuable and more meaningful.

Have a beautiful day.  -H

 

DREAM

dream-quotes-images-1-ce0456eb

January is definitely the month for inspiration, goal setting, reinvention, direction, and no doubt about it…DREAMING.

I think with the New Year comes hidden desires, secrets yearning to break free, new possibilities and a part of you that wants you to wake up and break the bonds of the ordinary.

Here is to DREAMS! I have searched for some good tips and tricks to help you make your wishes come true. Take this to heart & go!

1. Give yourself permission to dream: The only one stopping you from achieving your biggest dreams is you. The secret to accomplishing your biggest dreams is to give yourself permission to dream, to imagine and fantasize about your personal and professional goals–and the lifestyle you would like to have in the future. Think about the places that you would like to travel to and the kind of job that you would like to have. The most successful people start with a dream in mind–a dream of something fascinating and wonderful. You can rest assured that if you can dream it, you can do it.

2. Visualize yourself accomplishing your biggest dreams: It is essential to visualize your biggest dreams because this practice will lead you to create a clear mental picture of what you want to accomplish in life, which helps you set your personal and professional goals.

3. Put your ideas to work:  Use your ideas to define your goals, then prioritize each goal accordingly to accomplish your dreams. Realize that dreams don’t come true overnight while you’re sleeping. It takes time, effort, and patience–and being completely awake and fully engaged. Assign realistic deadlines to your goals and be flexible with yourself.

 

follow-your-dreamsADDITIONAL TIPS

Ask Yourself some good questions: Ask yourself focused and directed questions, such as “What do I need to do to achieve my dreams?” and “What has held me back from having achieved it already?” By asking yourself the right questions, you will be able to come up with the most important answers that you need to make it come true. Be honest with yourself, and ask yourself, “What inside of me is resisting it?” You might find fear, doubt, limiting beliefs, or other mental phenomena that are keeping you stuck. Spend the time discovering what your resistance is, and write it down in your journal. Some say, “Nothing worth having comes easily,” so you’ll have to do the work to find out what’s blocking you. And I’d be more than happy to help you get there, so get in touch with me now.

Choose a dream. It sounds obvious but many people struggle with this. It is tempting to pick the perfect dream and this need for perfection can paralyze you.What you want to remember is that this is not a one time deal. You’ll have many dreams and there is no reason why you can’t fulfill most if not all of them. My advice to you is to just choose one and make that decision now.

Commit to your dream. The only way to commit is by taking action towards your dream every day. So what action do you take? I don’t know but there is someone out there who does. Whatever dream you may have, chances are there is someone out there who has already done it. Your next step after choosing a dream is to find those people who have already done what you want to do and ask them how they do it. Once you’ve learned how to make dreams come true, use that information to create your step-by-step plan. Start with your monthly milestones then your weekly deliverables and then finally breaking those down into your daily tasks. Go. Do. Take the necessary actions.    [taken from life hack.org]

“AND, WHEN YOU WANT SOMETHING, ALL THE UNIVERSE CONSPIRES IN HELPING YOU ACHIEVE IT.”  -Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

Develop a ‘God Consciousness’ TRUST, really trust God, the Spirit of the Universe for the successful outcome to your endeavours. It WILL happen, though not in your time-frame and according exactly to your expectations. But always remember, God’s dreams are far bigger than we could ever imagine ourselves.

I really like this tip because it rings very true for me & reminded me of a great video I received from my sister yesterday. It is a great story that exemplifies this beautifully. Enjoy. You may recognize her—Jo from the show Fixer Upper. Great story.  Check it out  https://vimeo.com/125510141?ref=fb-share

Believe it is already true. Believe the best is yet to come.

What do you want for your LIFE!!

I heard on a podcast recently a great thought that I wanted to share with all of you…it only makes sense, we always ask, “What do you want for Christmas,” “What do you want for your birthday,” “What do you want for your wedding”…I think we should take this questioning and ask ourselves WHAT DO YOU WANT FOR YOUR LIFE!!

I understand this is a very loaded question for many, but if you make it as easy as every other question above, WOW, what our worlds would look like!! We would look at our lives in small questions, close goals, simple things that we wish for our life right now. Think about it, when someone asks you a sincere request for an answer for something you would like, for say, your birthday, you genuinely take a moment and can think of something you would like or wish for.

Now, if you could NOT look at your life like a big, huge puzzle that doesn’t have all the pieces yet and begin to look at it like a wish you would make for a Christmas or birthday present, what a gift that would be for your life.

Think about it right now!! What would you wish for? What little desires would bubble up to the surface?

Okay, so now I am going to give you a couple of ideas to help you realize these hidden wishes…

e2874238fb82244303c9c71a9eda4b5b

Wish upon a star: Tonight, or the next star filled night, I want you to go outside and look up to the sky. I want you to see all the sparkling white lights that are begging you to make a wish. Pick out a few of the brightest looking stars and begin to make wishes. Say them out loud so your heart hears them. Point to them and begin to go within and find those lost gems inside that want to be free. Let your mind wander and find those thoughts and ideas that you are the most drawn to for your life.

Blow

Wishing Cake: One other idea. Go to the grocery store and buy yourself a wishing cake. You could also make your own. It doesn’t have to be big, just big enough to put in a number of candles. Now, take it home and line it with a couple rows of candles. As your light them begin to ponder things you would like to wish into your life. As you begin to think of each wish, say it out loud and blow out a candle.

These ideas should get you seeing and believing in wishing for the things you really want for your life.

Another idea: Make it a family affair and have everyone take turns wishing on stars and candles. It would be fun to hear one anthers wishes, hopes, dreams and help them to realize them for their life.

Yoko Ono had an idea: A Wishing Tree…Write your wish on a piece of paper. Hang the paper on the wishing tree. Ask a friend to do the same. Keep wishing.

Happy wishing. -H
