Words of Wisdom 02/13/2018

Good New Day Beautiful Spirits!

This week’s Words of Wisdom is a quote submitted to me and it sure was right on time!

“Live your life without buts!” ~Olivia Smalls

Ms. Smalls’ quote reminds us that we are more than capable of creating and maintaining a life we truly enjoy.

A meaningful life by our own standards if we simply…

Stop making excuses.

Stop hesitating because of this or that.

Stop being afraid of what happens if this time doesn’t work out.

Stop awaiting support and validation from others.

Stop believing we may not be worthy of the life we want.

Re-write your script! Image result for action

Let’s find out what happens when we…

Stop trying and simply take action…DO!

Be open to changing direction midway if necessary; quitting is NOT an option!

Leave past experiences behind us; this time IS different; we’ve grown so much since then.

Be our very own cheerleader!

Trust ourselves to get it done.

We are worthy of beautiful life experiences. Contrary to what “they” say, life is NOT meant to be difficult.

 

As always, sending you great Love, Peace & Blessings…

On this New Day…

I awakened feeling groggy this morning; discomfort in my head, throat and stomach. I just feel pretty blah but I dragged myself to the job anyway just because I feel like I will miss the day’s pay if I didn’t. I realize this is opposite of honoring myself but I’ve made huge changes recently and I can admit to being concerned about lack of finances. If I don’t feel better I will go home; I’ve already promised myself…
So here is the interesting parts of my morning…
First I walked in to a spider web; why, why why do they insist on spinning webs in walkways? It’s always so finely spun that you don’t know you’re walking in to it until you feel it all over your face! (chuckles) I love spiders though, so I fussed a bit them asked them lovingly to please spin out of the walkway next time. Do you think they were listening? (chuckles)

Secondly, I got into my car and as I look a the windshield, a baby tree frog was sitting there just chillin’. (chuckles) I still can’t figure out how in the world he/she ended up on the windshield; it looks as if he/she was “dropped off”. (chuckles) So I found something in the car to have him jump onto so I could place him in the grass. I did not want to touch him/her because he/she was a baby and I wasn’t sure if I would hurt him/her (my mom calls me Hercules, chuckles). Eventually we worked together and he/she was off and hopping in the grass…

Here are some significant meanings relating to a Frog Spirit Guide:
Transformation
Cleansing
Healing
Rebirth
Renewal
New Life

Yesterday was filled with emotional turbulence, therefore I’m sharing my encounter with the baby frog today simply to show you just how wonderful the Universe truly is. When you ask for help (or in my case something to inspire me), it will be delivered to you (albeit not always in a way you would like for it to appear).

 As always the Universe knew what I needed on this New Day and so my cleansing and healing process has begun. Further confirmation is the itchiness I’m currently experiencing which has always been a sign of emotional release for me.
So…thank you to my Frog Spirit Guide for visiting me on this New Day when I need you most. Thank you for taking time to visit me outside of your regular business hours (frogs are mostly nocturnal). I am grateful for your guidance and beautiful energy.
To you, my Beautiful Spirits, stay focused on the life you are working to create and do not allow anything to deter you. Sure you will hit a few “bumps” in the road but none of those “bumps” are larger than your will to create the life you know you deserve.
Until next time, wishing you all Love, Peace & Blessings…

Inhale…Exhale…

Pain felt so deeply it make your heart stop briefly, your head pound angrily

Love felt so deeply warming your entire being, briefly taking your breath away

Disappointment you feel when someone you love experiences turmoil and there’s nothing you can do to make it stop; one of the worse things you can ever experience…helplessness

People around have no idea what you are processing inside, most don’t care; it’s not as if they can resolve your worries anyway…

Tears refuse to fall; spirit refuses to accept defeat

Something inside of you is fighting the darkness trying to take over; your will is stronger than anything that comes up against it

You can feel this happening inside of you; there are no words to describe it

The internal war is making you stronger and things that angered or saddened you melt away…

After a while your guides help you understand and know what your spirit, heart knows…you are just fine

You smile at this feeling a sense of inner peace spreading within you calming your entire being

In this moment you realize the one you love will be just fine in time; at their own pace and in their own time

Rain begins to fall, you release the chaos allowing yourself to breathe freely once again; rain is always soothing and cleansing

After a while the Sun joins you in the first new moments of the rest of your life…

You can’t look back even if you wanted to; forward progress is the only way

Inhale, Exhale…Inhale, Exhale…Inhale, Exhale…

Saying vs Meaning

Things people say and what they sometimes actually mean, albeit most times unintentionally…

Be strong, be courageous, speak your mind, don’t take crap from anyone…just don’t be this way with me.

Learn to say no and always put your needs first…just don’t be this way with me.

Be all you can be, never stop chasing your dreams…just don’t surpass where I am in my life.

I love and accept you just as you are…just maybe change this or that; just as long as you do things MY way.

Always keep it real no matter what…just as long as what you say or do doesn’t make me uncomfortable.

I’ve always got your back…just as long as someone doesn’t offer me a better deal.

Honor yourself always and pay attention to what you feel…just get over it already and deal with it; life is hard!

Sure you should have others friends that share your interests, I’m not jealous…just as long as when I call for you you come running.

I’m not in competition with you at all, you are my friend…just as long as I don’t see a chance to shine and leave you in the dust!

You are free to do as you please, live your life…just as long as you allow me to control the parts I want to.

There’s no way you can actually make that work…I live my life full of fear, how dare you be brave trying to achieve your goals.

I remember spending so much time seeking approval from various people in my life, yet wondering why it seemed as though I needed to constantly prove myself to have their love. I lost so much of myself at one point, looking in the mirror staring at a stranger. Always trying to please those whose approval I wanted, thought I needed. Always  trying to be the obedient and loyal daughter, employee, girlfriend/wife…

Although I’ve always walked to the beat of my own drum, I craved acceptance from people I loved; at the very least for them to love and accept me same as I felt for them. I realize they all loved me as best as they could. People often don’t realize how their words/actions may adversely affect someone whether intentional or not. Replacing judgement and/or a need to control with mindfulness when connecting with others will go a long way with improving communication within any relationship.

Approval of anyone outside of yourself should never be necessary for your to make your own choices. Honor yourself always by trusting what you feel about a situation/person and make your choice based on this not what someone else may think; no matter who the person is. You are NOT your mother or father, sister or brother… therefore you are not required to make the decisions they would make.

I always hear the term “follow your heart”… it’s usually spoken by people who are successful in their chosen profession, relationships, spiritual, personal self etc. and it used to aggravate me until now…

Now, at this very moment I understand the benefits of following your heart. Your heart is your truest, highest self. It’s the part of you that you’ve pushed away and perhaps buried because of life experienced that were uncomfortable. It’s the part you used to consult before you did anything when you were a child. It’s the part of you that always knows what  and who is best for you. It’s your compass and it’s your guru; the part of you that contains all of the answers you need.

My Dear, the answers you seek, the answers you need are only contained within you, never outside of you. Others can offer tidbits, maybe even a starting point for you but you must go deep within to access the answers that will assist with living the life you were created to live.

Today I don’t rely on what others think or any unsolicited advice they may give unless it resonates with me (which for me means it comes from a higher Source). I don’t wait for approval from anyone before I make a decision about MY life. I don’t allow what people say about me affect who I am. The only person that stands in my way or prevents me from doing anything is me… I am the only challenge I face from time to time; even facing myself is becoming easier each day.

***Cheers to honoring yourself and living the life you know you are meant to live.***

Wishing you all great Love, Peace & Blessings…

As I drove in this evening, the sky appeared as tumultuous as I’ve felt today; we’re usually in sync…
It was dark, stormy looking, bright in some areas and difficult to read what may have been stirring in the clouds. At one point the Sun, as powerful as it is looked as if it was being overpowered by the clouds. Some of the clouds had sharp edges and some were super thick as if about to burst open releasing an amount of water we could never prepare ourselves for. Many of the clouds resembled mountains, bluish-white in appearance making me think of and miss home…
St Ives lighthouse
After feeling as if I was riding waves most of this New Day, unsure of what I was processing within, I finally felt at peace as I gazed at the sky. In this instance I understood that I am never alone. The sky often mirrors my grief, my joy, my chaos… During periods of grief, chaos it storms and as the rain and vibrations from the thunder and lightning cleanse the Earth, my heart, my spirit are also cleansed making way for a clear sky…joy.
I’m known as the girl who walks in between the raindrops because when it rains I seldom use an umbrella, instead I welcome beautiful, healing energy of the rain.
Before leaving this morning I felt a pull in my heart center but it was not painful, more like making room for new beginning (makes sense since New Moon cycle has just completed); I wasn’t worried. At some point this afternoon the pulled became uncomfortable and I knew it wasn’t about new beginning, instead I allowed something meaningless to trouble me. It wasn’t until I met with the Sky that I was able to understand, work through it and release the uncomfortable feeling in my heart center. No storm but the rain came just as I began to release the negative energy.
New beginning is NOT synonymous for “easy process” and often something within you mourns the “old” whether good, bad or indifferent. It’s up to you to be mindful of this and keep moving forward as you embrace your new beginning. I don’t know what lies ahead (our Universe still refuses to provide a map to navigate life LoL) but I refuse to just tread water and stay where I am, I refuse to deny myself opportunities to experience and grow, I refuse to settle for a lesser life and best of all… I refuse to give up on ME!
Keep moving forward Beautiful Spirits!
Sending you Love, Peace & Blessings

I’ve been ridiculed most of this lifetime and now that I am older, I can see there are different sets of rules for people who consider themselves “normal” and people like me who walk our very own unique, individual path.

People who usually dish out crap, certainly don’t appreciate when it’s thrown back to them. LoL People who use the term “oh just get over it already and move on” want empathy when it’s their turn to feel bad or experience something that is NOT so easy to move on from.

I’ve always been fascinated by humans especially how some things are ok for some but not for others…

Here’s the thing…I’m so grateful that I’m no longer the soft-hearted, walk-all-over-me HSP, INFJ/INFP, Empath that I used to be and people are beginning to learn to keep their crap to themselves instead of trying to give it to me. I’m still the HSP, INFJ/INFP, Empath I’ve been created to be however, I will put you in your place if you even think of trying to get at me!

Needless to say, my circle of people has dwindled to almost nothing…which is ok by me because I don’t want to be around people who don’t love and accept me as I am…all of me.

Let today’s spilled thoughts remind you to ALWAYS stand up for yourself! Yes it will feel uncomfortable if you are a newbie at standing up for yourself but trust that…

  1. standing up for yourself…gets easier the more you do it
  2. standing up for yourself…becomes a natural process for you
  3. standing up for yourself…FEELS GREAT

People like to share their crap but it doesn’t mean you have to accept it. Do what feels right to you; honoring yourself always. Now I’m not suggesting that you become aggressive or confrontational but you deserve to honor, support and love yourself completely. Most of all, you do NOT deserve to be handed crap from anyone; no matter who they are!

Oh and…don’t forget to stand up for the those who may not be able to stand up for themselves (i.e.; seniors children, animals…). I mastered standing up for others as a child but sort of just learning to really stand up for myself…flabbergasting isn’t it? LoL

And Hey Beautiful Spirit…You’ve got this! 🙂
