Where Is Your Attention?

UPDATE: Transcript: (Back by popular demand!) ❤

Hello!  I hope you’re having a wonderful day today.  Today my question for you is: “Where is your attention?”  In the School of Metaphysics we like to say: “Your attention is your most precious commodity.”  Because it really IS how you create your life, where you put your attention.

So, I’d like you to think today about the words that you use, particularly when it’s relating to your longings and discontent.  Something that we talk about in the Vision Workshop that I present is: How are you framing your desires?  How are you framing your dreams?  You want to make sure that you choose your words carefully, that you present images to your inner mind that your inner mind will be creating for you, not against you.  So, to illustrate an example of how you have to be careful with your words, I’d like you to right now NOT think about purple elephants.  Ok.  I don’t know if you can imagine purple elephants, but I just love those.  Ok.  The example we use is: “Don’t think about the Statue of Liberty.  Don’t think about her hand raised, don’t think about the harbor, don’t think about the crown, don’t think about the torch in her hand. . . . ” What are you picturing right now?  Exactly what I told you NOT to, right?  Because your inner mind, your subconscious mind — as it is called — does not understand the word “don’t.”  It thinks in pictures, so all of the nouns — all of the things, all of the people, whatever images you’re using — doesn’t matter if you’re using “don’t” — your subconscious mind is receiving those, so you really need to be careful.

So, think about how you’re wording what you want.  You want to create as clear a picture as possible of what you DO want in your life.  Some examples we give in the workshop are: Do you want to “live in financial abundance“? vs. “Getting out of debt.”  Do you want to “move with comfort and ease“?  vs. “wanting no more back pain.”  So, look at the difference there.  You have the focus on abundance, and you have the focus on debt.  Just feel the difference.  You have the focus on comfort, ease, health — and the focus on back pain.  Even though you’re saying “No more back pain.”  Your inner mind is hearing: Oh!  Back pain!  MORE of that!  Do you want to enjoy living life at your ideal weight?  Or lose weight?  A lot of us are talking about losing weight, losing weight, losing weight!  You really want to focus on being healthy, vibrant, strong, ideal weight.  Focus on the positive because that is what you want to feed your mind.  That is what you want to attract and create more of.  And maybe for one of my future videos I’ll go into how I am extremely — up until now I’ve been extremely good at attracting  exactly what I don’t want because I’ve been very good at identifying my discontent.  It’s even more important to identify what you would really love, what you truly desire.  So, think about your desires today.  Choose your words carefully, and create the life you would truly love living.

Much love and blessings to you all.  Have a wonderful day. ❤

Can I See Clearly Now?

ID-10020472I’m reading I Can See Clearly Now by Dr. Wayne Dyer.  It reminds me of one of the exercises I’ve done in my studies, looking back through my life and identifying the learning in my experiences.

Every experience is for learning.  Every experience has the potential to help you grow closer to who you want to be.  Are you taking advantage?  Are you grateful for these gifts?

I’m still not.  I have noticed that I have been more angry lately.  I have been complaining lately.  And I’ve had dreams about eye appointments. I’ve had fuzziness in my vision and in my perception.

Every time I think it’s about them or about you I have taken myself farther from the truth.  I decide what I want to believe.  I decide what I think.  Therefore, I decide what is reality.

Thought is cause.  Change your thoughts, change your attitudes, change your perceptions, change your life.  This is the message I want to internalize.  This is the message I want to share with others.

Elevate Your Thoughts!


I have been told that I am powerful.  I know it to be true.  There is a power within all of us — and we are the creators of our lives!  Sometimes it’s easier to see the power of our negativity than our positive influence.  I’ve had some dark thoughts circulating recently, and I can actually feel the heaviness of them.  I feel them weighing me down.  Sometimes I can feel them darkening a space.  I resolved today to create the perpetual intention of love.  No matter what I’m doing, taking activity, speaking, teaching — whatever! — everything will have love behind it.  One of our activities during the workshop this past weekend was setting a goal of something to give that day, that week, that month, that year, etc.  For each spot, I put: LIGHT!  I’ve been projecting light.  Today I did it a few times throughout the day, to my students, to the world, and to those I knew I’d be interacting with.  It really does work.  It was a beautiful, connected day.

I have some pretty deeply entrenched “negative” thought patterns that I don’t want anymore.  I’m beginning to see the possibilities with optimism, excitement, and expectation. Wonderful things really do come to those who believe!  So, I’m going to catch those worries, those doubts, those FEARS and replace them with trust, faith, and love.

What are you giving this week? ❤

Pride Comes Before the Shame


Today I was thinking about something I learned recently about pride and shame.  It always amazes me how everything is connected.  One of the students from the School of Metaphysics was talking about the emotional doorways when we were eating lunch at the “Your 12 Sacred Relationships” workshop in Countryside.  One of the other students had been talking about leos and pride, and this student spoke about how shame is on the opposite end of pride.  Humility is in the middle.  If someone has an inclination toward pride, this person will also experience shame at some point.  The goal is to return to balance, to be in humility.

Yesterday my hackles were raised.  I became angry.  My thoughts became dark and vengeful and tantrum-like.  This was hard for me as I was experiencing this because I have a lot more knowledge now.   I knew what was going on.  I knew how strong my ego was clinging to pride and to outdated modes of thinking.  I also knew that thought is energy and can be destructive as much as creative.  Have you ever experienced having a dark moment, and then “everything goes wrong”?  This was happening to me, too, and I knew I was attracting it.  Bad traffic.  Bumping my head.  Things not working properly.  I knew at least one of the lessons I had missed.  And I knew it was going to come back.  And I hated this.  And the emotions continued.

It’s not great to go to bed unsettled, unresolved.  But life goes on.  Today is a new day.  I’m better able to reflect.  I have indeed been chipping away at my life lessons.  I will continue.  I am reminded from the workshop yesterday that virgos tend to get intensely focused on individual things and believe the world is ending if things aren’t going right.  So far the world is not ending.  Today is a good day.  I also felt ashamed of some of my reactions yesterday.  And I remembered a good friend who had experienced similar pride and shame.  I now have more compassion for him.  And remembering him, I’m able to move a little better through mine.  This morning I repeated to myself: “I forgive myself.”  “I forgive others.”  “I forgive myself.”  “I forgive others. . . .”  I’m remembering that every part of me IS me.  It is not all of me, but it is an aspect of me, and I may never be my “best” me  — or True Self — all of the time.  And that’s ok.  Life goes on.  More things make sense.  More lessons are learned.  Things always work out.

I Miss This

I miss blogging.  So, here I am.  I’ve felt very overwhelmed lately.  I’ve made some huge changes in my life, and I realized today that I just can’t do it all at once.  Baby steps.  I’ve tried to do too much, and  last week I began to shut down. Thankfully, my body is still supporting me!

I kept having frustrated, angry feelings.  I wanted to blame everyone and everything for the stress I was feeling.  The funny (ironic) thing is that I am the one who creates my own environment.  I am the one with the thoughts who manifested the reality that I face from day-to-day.  So, who was I really upset with?  Clearly, myself!

#3 on my 10 Most Wanted List is faith.  Faith that everything will work out.  My angels continually encourage this.  I saw 1144 today:

(from Joanne Sacred Scribes)

“Angel Number 1144 is a message from your angels that you are to look to new ways to go about getting your work done more efficiently.  Listen to your intuition as your angels are ushering positive energies towards and around you and giving you information about your next steps.

Angel Number 1144 tells you to keep your thoughts positive and optimistic as you undertake an important new role or venture.  Your positive energies, intentions and actions will manifest your expected results. Trust your angels to deliver all that you will need in your endeavours.

Angel Number 1144 encourages you to keep striving ahead, and don’t take ‘no’ for an answer.  You are on the right path so do not let anything deter you.  Expect miraculous answers and solutions to appear as you need them.”

It is a beautiful day today.  Perfect weather. I feel more relaxed.   I’m enjoying the fresh air and a fresh start.  I’m brainstorming some longterm goals.   I will be clear, concise.  I will tier my activities, create my own plan.  The universe is a facilitator, not a dictator!  I will align with my true self and watch the magic enfold!
