Prayer

I’m NOT a “religious” person at all, but last night I sat and prayed to the great spirit(energy) that surrounds us. I voiced many of the negative thoughts that were bombarding me since I’ve removed the numbing from alcohol. I said them all out loud and just sat with them and asked for peace and to feel good. God. Good. I realized that if the peace I’m asking for is FROM Spirit(God) then naturally this energy of peace is already within me. How could it not? There is no exclusion. None. So as I sat still after asking for peace and realizing it’s already within me it was almost like the clouds within we’re starting to break up and bits of peace were starting to shine through. I’m going to starting using prayer as one of my tools. I guess I’m bringing it up to let others know you don’t have to go to a church to pray. You don’t have to believe in the the Bible to pray. You can just pray to the Universe how YOU wish. Hope everyone has a great day and I’ll be surrounding you all with best wishes. Keep 🎸 it! 

Fed Up

Somewhere within this spinning earth resides hope and goodness

As the media machines spits out doom, gloom, and negativity

We know there is more then just that

How did we end up here listening, believing, and clicking on all this SHIT

There is Love

I know it

I feel it

We must not give in to this wave

How do we stop this nonsense

There lies the answer possibly

STOP

Stop buying into it

Stop reading it

Stop subscribing to it

Check out from the media and start giving love instead

Be the example

Why haven’t we figured this out yet

Love Never Fails

It’s the truth, but we choose to believe otherwise

You insulted me

You don’t understand and you are wrong

You are my enemy

I’m a snowflake

I told my kids I wouldn’t bring babies into this current mess

Are we never going to get along

Are we going to continue killing the planet

Many people are checking out

Going minimal

They can no longer buy into this shit that’s be sold to us

We need to stop buying into McMansions, $40,000 vehicles, jobs/investments that go against are morals,…

Somehow we have to go back to the basics

Love

We must give more Love

We must take less of everything else

We spend so much on our military

How much do we spend on Love and Compassion

Everyone is on depression medicine

We need Love prescriptions instead

This country is fighting against itself

Our children are pissed at our actions

They don’t want to grow up and be like us

I don’t want to be like us either

Were we never intended to figure it all out and Change

Are humans not capable of living together peacefully

Even if all our needs are met is it just against our nature

How do we change

Stop

Regroup

Starts with me, I

Somehow my soul tells me love never fails

Reach across the table and hold a strangers hand

Rant done! Maybe us too. Hopefully not.

It could be worse

The other night I was leaving yoga and I saw this​ gentleman​n slowly walking on the sidewalk with a walker. It was dark out, cold, and there was still some snow and ice on the ground. Something just didn’t seem right and I’m finally​ learning to listen to my intuition and ACT.

Me: How’s it going?
Him: Slow.
Me: Is that your car in front of mine?
Him: No.
Me: Where you headed?
Him: My house on Elm.

I asked him if he wanted a ride and he said sure. We get his walker into my back seat and he slowly gets into the passenger seat and I shut the door for him. He looked to be in his mid thirties. We’re driving and I could tell something was wrong as he slowly talked and tried to pronounce his words.

Him: I had a stroke and I’ve been trying to get out and exercise, but didn’t realize how long it took me to get over here. (about a 1/2 mile from his house)
Me: I’m so sorry to hear that you had a stroke.
Him: Yah, this is my second one. (then long pause)… I guess it could be worse.
Me: Speechless.

After I dropped him off, all I could think about was his statement it could be worse. How many times have I done the whole woe is me or created self drama over nothing. Nothing!

I often forget it could be a lot worse.

Roll with the Small stuff and Appreciate and be Grateful for everything you have!

Smiling while wounded

Wounded

I was reading and came across the word

Flash to this I created

In more ways than one

Not all wounds are seen

But indeed they are there and deep

I felt sad revisiting this time

I look and wanted to say I’m sorry

You needed helped in such a bad way

Instead you faked smiles

And life is good

Falling and tumbling inside

…Interesting how the doggies could sense it

Don’t suffer in silence❤️

* These were taken during my divorce back in 2015. Fast forward to two days ago when I saw Elton John on his Goodbye yellow brick road tour. He told a story of how it took him so many years to learn 3 words that would change his life —> I Need Help. Once he admitted it and said it to all to hear LOVE came flooding in. How I wish now that I would of had the courage then to voice those words. Learning as I go.

Dwight goes marbles!

What can you do with one marble?

See the jar on the right? What’s different between that and the Others?

It’s POTENTIAL! It’s me.

At least that’s how I’m rolling with it for my new 2019 ritual.

I got the idea from James Clear in his book called Atomic Habits. James says we as a group love to track and describes by how using marbles as an example we can track the habits we strive for in life. I found the book quite interesting and highly recommended it! I have this make belief world in my head where I’m doing EVERYTHING right and only doing good things – only to awaken after another year and nothing changes. This year I’m going to change all that and roll with James idea and put my own spin on it!

So in my world I start on the left jar with Spirit. For me, it’s all the energy and abundance that surrounds Everything. This spirit supplies the universe with its energy and opportunities of possibilities which is represented in my middle jar. Each soul has the opportunity to dance with this energy of the universe or not. If you choose not Spirit doesn’t care. It will just dance by giving you “NOT”. I for one am tired of not and not growing and expanding to my full beautiful potential. This year I’m the right jar and my job is to dance with the universe and fill it with good habits.

I first started off by writing down all the good themes that I currently think would turn my life around and I could use to make me more accountable.

Next I think about some habits I could use that will guide me in the right direction. For every action I take the universe of possibility smiles and gladly puts a marble in my jar.

For each positive action, I get another marble.

As soon as the universe of possibility transfers a marble, spirit replenishes it just as easy as that.

There is an infinite amount of “marbles” the universe of possibility can contain. All I need to do is ACT and start the dance.

So I put the jars in my living room where I can see them daily just waiting for me to play. I discovered right of the bat though to keep the lids open – it helps with flow.

Every action taken that day toward my themes gets a marble from the universe of possibility put into my jar. Not only do I move it over, but I also write it down.

I’m creating triggers that reinforce my habits.

So at this point you may be asking what about spirit? What replenishes it?

All of us do!

Every morning I empty “my marbles” back into spirit and the dance starts all over again.

Instead of living this make belief world in my head, I’m now creating a wonderful REAL world!

What can you do with one marble?

Change Your Life❤️
