Think About It Thursday: Are You Purposeful?

thewayHow do you spend your day?  Are you aware of where your time goes?  It can be helpful to keep a log from day-to-day.

Are you on target with your purpose?  Do you know your purpose? If you know where you’re headed and know the why for your life, you can make better decisions about how you spend your day.  With the unlimited resources and opportunities we have available to us now, this is really important!

If you haven’t yet, take stock now.  What is important to you?  What do you love? How do you like to serve?   What are you here to do?  Turn that into an affirmation for yourself and use it as a tester.  If you’ve kept a log, reflect back on the activities you’ve taken throughout the day.

When you’re on target, you feel more fulfillment, and that leads to a happier, healthier you!

Much love, many blessings. ❤

Movie Monday: Build Your Dream and Set Your Intention

It’s Movie Monday!  Today I’m freshly back from DreamBuilder Live in Baltimore, sharing about my intentions for the trip and how we can apply them to our everyday lives.

Did You Let Your Heart Sing Today?

ID-100281799

Do you have trouble remembering your day?  Does it all blend together?  Or do you feel a little drained, a little exhausted?  If so, ask yourself: “Did I let my heart sing today?”  A friend told me recently that she had begun prioritizing her time by separating her life into activities that make her heart sing — and those that don’t. (And giving the former the priority!)  What a way to live!

How have you made your choices today?  Have you chosen activities/events that bring you joy?  If you do so, not only do you live your own vibration, but you lift everyone around you.

If you’re feeling a little drained, take a look at what you did to nourish your inner self, to feed those inner desires.  If you’re like I’ve been lately, you may be saying: “Ain’t nobody got time for that!”  But I’m beginning to see that I don’t have time NOT to.  The results of “no fun Teri” are burnout, resentment, restlessness, and an excessive desire for sleep.

So, I’m starting to listen to my inner desires, and I’m starting to nurture myself.  I’m slowly building a yoga habit.  I’m listening and singing to music more.  I let myself watch little clips (penchant for movie trailers).  I’m getting back on track with my disciplines.  I’ve done more Zumba.  I’m visiting with more people.  I’m attending events and participating in things that I’m emotionally drawn to.  And it’s wonderful.

Today I spent a little time at the IONS Conference dream booth with the School of Metaphysics; had a great lesson with one of my students; took a different route to my destination and ended up driving next to a fellow DreamCatchers buddy; stopped by a Metaphysics Fair in Tinley Park and did some yoga. listened to a chakra mini-lecture, bonded with a friend, and got a tarot reading; tasted a yummy creation by Brian and my family from the Healthy Luncheon; met some of my new neighbors who helped Brian install a new car battery; guest participated in my first improv show; and saw Lucy in and outdoor viewing with friends from the Bolingbrook School of Metaphysics.  A wonderful, wonderful day.

And now here I am, listening to the “25 Most Inspiration Songs, drinking some energy tea, and feeling fantastic.

Have you taken a few minutes for yourself today?  Don’t forget to let your soul sing!

What About This Chaos?

ID-1007068

My life became chaotic this past month.  It’s finally calming down now.  I’ve been trying to figure out the meaning behind it all, and the beautiful thing is — there isn’t simply one meaning.  I can look at this craziness from different perspectives.

From one perspective — I created this chaos, and probable because I enjoy it.  My metaphysics teacher told me this, and I agreed with her.  “Create with purpose!” she told me.  “If your life is full of purposeful activity, you will have no need for all of this craziness.”  I am indeed a creator.  I would like my creations to be a little less stressful, indeed. . .

From another view, the universe is trying to teach me some lessons.  Often when I try to micromanage parts of my existence, things completely unravel.  I then question: “Is all of my work for naught?”  Well, yes.  Because the purpose of my existence is not to force my life to fit into a neat little box.  I’m to be a creator! An explorer! A student of life! A spiritual teacher!  It seems the universe is warning me that my priorities are all out of whack.  I’m too focused on my environment, on what is outside of me.  I think I’m finally listening, universe!

So, here I sit, in the calm after the storm, looking out into the horizon.  No matter what storm hits this place, I must keep a cool interior.

Activity!

ID-10044017

Goal + Purpose + ACTIVITY = SUCCESS (from lessons of the School of Metaphysics)

Today I came to the conclusion that I need to take more activity.  In one of my intuitive reports I asked for insight about “tolerance,” and it said to overcome any tendency toward procrastination.  I’m beginning to see it in my work, and I think I’ve always suspected this — I need to keep moving!  If I’m in a rut, get moving!  If I don’t know what to do — get moving!  If I’m feeling down — get moving!  If I’m doing great — keep moving!  Activity, activity, activity.  That’s supposed to be an easy thing for virgos (still have last week’s workshop and lecture on the brain!)  So, it’s time to get on it!

What Energy Are YOU Emitting?

ID-100144459I’m reading Psychic Intelligence: Tune In and Discover the Power of Your Intuition by Terry & Linda Jamison.  The book includes an activity to practice seeing auras and descriptions of what the auras represent.  The aura is your outer energy field, extending beyond your physical body.

Think about what thoughts and emotions you’ve expressed today.  What color is your aura?

Here’s a snippet of each color to get you started:

Red: strength, physical and sexual energy, passion, courage

Orange: opportunity, creativity, organization, adaptability, and caring for others

Yellow: vitality, intellect, prosperity, playfulness, optimism, communication

Green: growth, change, healing, prosperity

Blue: peace, tranquility, healing, caring for others, compassion, verbal communication

Purple: passion, spirituality, psychic power, clairvoyance

White: protection, spirituality, innocence, purity

Brown: stability, grounding, practicality

Silver: Clarity of purpose

Gold: spiritual energy, inspiration

I’m thinking a little red or silver today.  Can’t see it yet.  How about you?

What Do Your Dreams Mean to You?

picjumbo.com_HNCK5412

Do you pay attention to your dreams? Or are they just part of the sleeping experience?  Just another fixture in your day-to-day existence?

What if your dreams actually have messages for you?  Imagine a pile of love letters left unopened.  What might you be missing?

For over 40 years teachers and students at the School of Metaphysics have been studying dreams. We connect dreams to the previous 24 to 48 hours of our life experiences before the dream and dig for the messages that our own dreams are trying to tell us.   We are like detectives peering into our own souls.  After we decipher the dream’s message, we apply the learning to help ourselves, so that we can grow. We believe that life is our schoolroom, and we are here to become the best versions of ourselves.

Your dreams are about you. Every part of the dream – every person, place, and thing in your dream is a part of you. And the messages from your dreams come from you. They come from the inner you, the inner teacher, your inner soul mate.  And that inner teacher is always trying to help you, to mentor you, to give you understandings and truth – if you will listen.

Anyone can interpret his/her own dreams. There’s actually a science to it. And you are your best teacher. You are your best interpreter because your messages come from you!

Would you like to start opening those messages?  You can start at any time.  Get a journal or a notebook and start recording what you remember each morning.  Then start to look for patterns for the symbolism behind it.  Join a dreams Meetup group.  Read books or look on-line.  Take on-line courses through dreamschool.org or in-person through psychology classes or the nearest branch of the School of Metaphysics (www.som.org).  Do you have questions?  You’ve got answers!
