Some will say that they will be happy if only…  They are waiting for what they think would make them happy.  Until then, their happiness is here and there but never constant.

What if I were to tell you that happiness, full on true happiness, is in your life at this moment?  Happiness comes into life when we recognize the happy moments that we have right now. By saying your happiness will come when everything is just perfect in the future, you are creating a vibration that is saying that you will only be happy in the future and in the future it will stay. You are creating a vibration that happiness will come only in the future but each time you think it, you aren’t thinking about happiness in the now, so this can mean the future happiness will elude you. By opening up to happiness now, you will be creating a happy successful future.

Wouldn’t it be better to find happiness now so that the future moments will be in happiness as well?

Where is that happiness right now?  All you have to do is look.  What makes you happy? Nature is an excellent in the moment happiness.  Look at the seasons, the beautiful trees, the colors of the forest, a daisy filled field; just to name a few.  When you head home, and your car is working just fine, this is another moment that you can be happy about. Look around you.  Think of all that you say and all you do. Seek the happy within each moment. Open your heart to finding grateful filled experiences.  Appreciate those around you and those experiences that have joy within them.

You have much to be happy about and that happiness, in the now of the moment, will then help to create that future you are wanting.

Happiness is a state of mind my friend.


beth mccain quotes 778

When you get into the mind and truly believe that every experience you experience is a part of getting you to where you want to be, then that is exactly what will happen.  And how you handle each experience in life, whether it is positive or negative, is the direction your life will head.  Anytime that you have a negative experience, you can either feel powerless and cave in to the negative feelings and thoughts that come into your mind or you can see it as just an experience with a few resistant feeling vibrations that you have a choice in how you handle it all.

Handle it with a positive mindset and heart, then the experience will feel less resistant and take a direction of more positive meaningful vibrations knowing that growth and lessons are coming about to help you to get to where you want to be.

Sometimes the best growth of vibration comes through an experience that seems less than positive, but really, that less than positive experience, is an experience that is needed to clear the air and move you in another direction.   How you breeze through it is the form it will take.

Trust and believe that all of your experiences are essential to getting you to where you want to be and how you deal with them is the direction they will take.

You’ll be just fine.

beth mccain 791

You are what you believe.  Any belief you may have about the world, yourself, others, and the Universe itself; you are creating your own world within yourself. Some believe the same way and some do not. Many can believe in one thought whereas others don’t believe at all.  There is no right way or wrong way in how you believe.  There is no one way to believe. The only Universal law that applies to how you live your life for all is ‘live yourself in any way that you see fit as long as you don’t intentionally harm another mentally or physically.’  This is saying that you can believe, act, think, and feel any way that feels the best for you as long as you don’t intentionally harm another with those thoughts or your actions.

So if you want to believe in something that no one else believes in, then do it.  There is no wrong or right way to live life.  You are experiencing life and that is what is expected of us when we are born.  We are expected to experiencing life through a physical vessel. Our spiritual being is observing, learning, and growing through each and every experience we have.  That is all that is required of us from the Universe.

You can be just like others if you want or you can be completely unique.  It’s your choice in how you life life and no one can take that from you.

time to release

Holding on to anger is one of the ways of keeping life from being positive.  Sure, the anger may be warranted, but when you choose anger, day after day, you are creating a life full of more to be angry about. Your perception of life will be jaded and negative and the anger will just continue to build until you decide to let go of it.

Anger can be a great motivator, but it is when we hold on to that anger that it no longer is about what initially made you angry.  It is up to you to release the anger and get that burden off your shoulders.

Forgiveness of others, of self, and of challenging experiences is a way of letting go of anger or even a negative feeling vibration.

Why hold on to something that feels horrible, negative, and hateful? Take a deep breath in and in the exhale let go of the thoughts of anger. You’ll be able to see life much more clear with a weight taken off your shoulders.

This gives you full rein to create a positive thought and vibration in your life. Breathe out the anger and breathe in the appreciation and love of life. That will create a life full of appreciation and love.


When it comes to others and what they say or do, you don’t have to be affected by them. If they are saying rude things to you or talking behind your back, it is up to you to take care of the situation and then let go of any negative thoughts in regards to who they are or what they do.

If someone is bothering you, it is important to stand up for yourself or at least clear the air.  It is when you experience the same thing over and over again, and keep reacting the same way each time, that creates a negative vibration in your life.

When another is talking about your life and you don’t agree with them, you don’t have to take it personally.  They don’t know about your life; only you do.  They can’t see through your eyes or feel through your feelings; they can only assume what they think of your life by comparing it to their own experiences and more likely than not, their thoughts about your life are construed and wrong.

So why get upset over something they know nothing about?

It is your life and your choice of where your thoughts go. You don’t need to go down the rabbit hole with others unless you choose to. You can choose to remain calm and let go of what they think because they really don’t know what they are talking about.

Now, if you agree with them then you are getting some good suggestions about changing your life.

Don’t go down the rabbit hole unless you choose to…


beth mccain 9989

You make your life what it is so if you are in a mindset or worry or doubt, then worry and doubt will be a part of your life.

If you are frustrated and angry, then frustration and anger will be a part of your life.

Life wasn’t meant to be lived through fear, worry, doubt, frustration, or anger.  Life is meant to be lived, and be present in every single moment, instead of thinking of the past or the future.

What you do with this moment will create your future moments. Even in life challenges you have a choice of the direction to take your thought.

If you are appreciative, then appreciative will be a part of your life.

If you are grateful, then grateful will become a part of your life.

If you are happy and work toward happiness in your every moments, then happiness will be  a part of your life.

If you think positive, talk positive, act positive, then the positive will be a part of your life.

You see?  In every moment you are creating through your thought.  And the direction you take your thought and your feelings, will create your future.

her story 3

There is no law that states that just because you are having a life challenge, that you can’t be positive and happy as you go through it.

You may ask how you can be happy and positive when you are experiencing moments that make you feel nervous or worried or sad.  You remember one phrase that puts it all to rest ‘all is well and will be well no matter what the experience.’

This is saying that no matter what happens, life will continue on and be just fine. This is saying that you trust in the direction the Universe is taking your life and that you know that the challenge you are experiencing is a part of taking you in a direction in your life. This is saying that how you handle the challenge is a part of where it takes you and that the experience will pass.  This is saying that you will deal with it, do your best, yet still appreciate the moments and life focusing on higher positive thoughts.

Be happy in your moments my friend.  That happiness will come back around to you always.


balancing of life

There is more than one path to get to where you want in your life and sometimes, the path you never thought to take, may be the path that will take you right to what you wanted life to be.

Don’t give up.  Trust and know that there are many paths to get you to where you want to be in life. Sometimes those detours can actually bring you to where you want to be.

Focus in on what you want the end result to be and then go with the flow and don’t be afraid to take a road that hasn’t been travelled before.  That road may just lead you to exactly where you want to be.

beth mccain 4453

Many times when we are going through a challenge, we feel like we are not going to get what we envisioned life to be.  It seems as if we have veered off the right track and life is taking steps backwards.  You may feel as if you are taking two steps forward and three steps back, but really you are only seeing a small part of the bigger picture that is your life.

If you could see the big picture, you would find that what you are experiencing is a part of getting you to where you want to be. You’re really not stepping backwards, you are being given a choice of where you take the challenge. If you trust and let it unfold as you create a positive vibration around the challenge, then those steps back will be steps forward.  If you trust that the Universe sees the big picture and knows the best way to get you to where you want to be, then you can just go along with what is happening and keep a positive mindset as you get through the experience.

Remember that you can only see just a small aspect of the bigger picture, but also remember that the big picture that the Universe sees is the big picture of what you envision life to be.  If you can keep a positive mindset, fine tune your thoughts and choices through that positive mindset, even in a negative or resistant feeling experience, then you will be going into the direction of the bigger picture.

Don’t give up my friend. The Universe has your back and knows the best way to get you to where you want to be. The experience you are having is a part of getting you there.  How you think, feel, and react through it all is the direction you will head to. Learn and grow through the experience and know that you are on the right path.



beth mccain 33431

All you have to do is experience life.   That is what the Universe expects from you.  So whether you are multi tasking, have five jobs, have no job, sitting on the couch, out helping others, reading a book,  or anything else, you are experiencing life. If you feel that inner tug of doing more, then that is your spirit telling you what you may want to do to grow and experience even more if you so choose.

You can experience life in any way that you see fit as long as you don’t intentional harm another mentally or physically.  That is the one Universal law about experiencing life.

So do what you love, be who you want to be, and listen to that inner nudge because no matter what you can’t get it wrong.


Just because you may be having a challenge in your life, it doesn’t mean that you have to feel negative.  Life is full of challenges.  It is a part of being human, but we have a choice in how we deal with our challenges. When we deal with them in a positive mindset, then we are choosing a certain path to take while we take care of our challenge.  And the challenge begins to take on a whole different view than before. It no longer is about feeling upset, angry, or sad.  It becomes about appreciating and feeling positive and it begins to feel like it is no longer a challenge, but growth and lessons for the spirit.

Being positive is a choice that you get to make in any experience.



No matter what is happening around you, whether it is chaos or just an agitated feeling, you can find the calm within the ‘storm.’

Take a moment to tell the mind to tell the body to relax your shoulders and your neck.  This gives the mind and the body something to do while you shift focus toward the calm that is within you. We can get tensed up in moments and to be conscious of the body and its tenseness, we can let go of the physical tension through the mind.  The mind understands that we are trying to calm and that one action of relaxing the shoulders and neck, brings a calm over the body.  Sure, you may have to do it again and again, but eventually it will become second nature.

As the mind and body are busy, find your calm within.  Take a deep breath in and let go of any tension in your exhale.  Envision going within and going deeper in thought and feeling.  Get into a calm focused state of mind, body, and spirit and feel the connection to the Universe where there is always calm, always peace.

Sit with the feelings and thoughts for a moment and keep deep breathing in and breathing out going deeper within.

The calm within the storm my friend.  Use it to create balance, calm and harmony.

beth mccain 33431

Think about your day and ask yourself if you think only of what you don’t want to happen or do you think about what you do want to happen.

When you focus on what you don’t want to happen, then that don’t want comes knocking on your door  The more you worry about what ‘might be,’ the more you are creating the very vibration of what you don’t want.

That is the moment to shift your focus from what you don’t want and focus in on what you do want.

Let’s say you have a family reunion coming up and when your mind goes to your family reunion, you think about everyone you don’t get along with.  You focus in on creating ‘what if’ scenarios of what you don’t want.  You will begin to complain and dread the reunion before it has even happened. You are creating the very vibration of what you don’t want to happen.  The more you focus and complain about it, the more you are creating that scenario.

OR you can think of your family reunion coming up and you can consciously shift your mind to what you will enjoy and who you want to see.  You can think of all the best case scenarios and the great memories that will be made.  You are now focusing on the very vibration of what you want to happen.  The more you focus and look forward to it, letting go of any and all ‘don’t wants,’ you will be creating the best case scenario and more often than not, the experience will be a positive one.

Everyone knows what they don’t want so why not know what you do want and appreciate the thought? You’ll be creating some wonderful best case scenario vibrations.



When they say that ‘love is all there is,’ that is the reality.  Any and everything that we say and do always comes back to love in some way. Even the most negative of people are helping you to see and learn about love.  A negative person may show you what the absence of love can feel like, but that too, is a part of learning about love. The contrast of the absence of love, which we call hate, makes many think more about love through the action of what another does through the absence of love.  We can get angry and hate just like the individual who began it all or we can focus in on all the love that comes about through the experience that another has created through helping, caring, kindness, and compassion.  Focus in on loving those you can help…

We can do all we can to make things better and initial frustration and anger can be motivators, but holding on to those emotions can cause the frustration and anger to simmer within. That is the moment to shift to love my friend. Use the anger for good to get things changed so that life is better for many, but then let it go and use passion and inspiration to finish the change you are wanting.

What would happen if you focused in on love in all your moments?  What would happen if instead of just grabbing your cup of coffee when they call your name, you looked at the person who made your coffee and gave them an appreciative word and smile?  What would happen if you saw another having a rough day and you chose to talk with them about it instead of avoiding them? What would happen if you were conscious of love in all you say and do no matter what the experience?

You would be creating a whole lot of love and your own world would reflect just what you sent out.

More love please!

You are the only one responsible for your happiness or unhappiness. There is no one person or thing that can take the blame for you being unhappy.  You may say, “Oh really?  How about that guy I was in love with that broke my heart and left? He is responsible for my unhappiness!”

It can hurt when another leaves.  It can be upsetting when an experience doesn’t go as smoothly as you had hoped. But neither person or thing is to blame. You have a choice whether to be happy. They are not responsible for all of your happiness.  This isn’t to say that it doesn’t hurt to break up or that it isn’t upsetting when something doesn’t go the way we wanted it to, but to put full blame on something or someone, you are giving that person or thing, power over how you are feeling and thinking. Why give them that kind of power over your life?

Take responsibility for your own happiness no matter what you are experiencing. Focus in on all that makes you happy and release any thought or feeling of another having the power to make you feel unhappy.   Take time to be upset if you feel you need to, but do your best not to stay in that upset for too long or else it will take control of your everyday thoughts and feelings.  Give it the proper venting and ‘grieving,’ but then move forward a little each day toward what makes you feel happy.

Happiness is a choice my friend.

balancing of life

Let’s say you are heading into an experience that you know you are not fond of.  Maybe you’re going to a family gathering that isn’t the most fun or maybe it is time to get your car checked out.  And normally when you go into those experiences, you have a less than positive thought and feeling before heading toward it.  It could be from a past experience or you just may not like the environment that you have been put in.

Or maybe you are about to experience something that seems scary so you are anxious.

No matter what the situation or experience, what would happen if you just assumed the best?  No matter if you have experience the family gathering a hundred times and it always turned out less than positive, what would happen if you just expected the best case scenario instead of preparing for the worst?  What if, that nasty little bully of an uncle is just like he has always been but you choose not to play his game.  What if you just said ‘game over’ in your mind and went about your business focusing on enjoying the moments.  You have to be there so why not create a positive mindset.

What would happen if you kept a positive mindset in each and every experience.  So what if it turns out different than you thought; it can be a positive, right?

You get to choose the direction my friend.

beth mccain 779

Each and every day it is important to take the time to find calm and balance. Without balance and calm, we will feel confused and chaotic.

Take a moment to focus in on feeling calm. Tell your mind to tell the body to relax the shoulders and the neck. By doing this, you are giving the mind something to do and the body something to do. This leaves you with a clear open connection to the Universe.  In that open connection you can find calm in any experience.  You can get into the mind of calm and really focus in on the feeling of calm.

Even if you do this for just a few moments you will be taking control of any feelings of negative and anxiety by letting them go and replacing them with the ‘all is well’ thought and feeling.

The more you are in a state of calm and balance, the more life will open up to more of the same.

beth mccain 33431

You deserve a wonderful life.  You are worthy of a wonderful life. This Universe sees all of what you say and do and knows how truly wonderful you are.

Isn’t it time for you to believe it as well?  Take just a moment and really think some positive thoughts about who you are.  This isn’t ego driven in any way.  It is important to have a healthy positive view of who you are as being self empowered is a part of getting you to where you want to be in life.

The vibrations of courage,  feeling worthy, and being confident are all a part of your path of getting you to where you want to be.

Take a moment and talk to yourself as if you were your own best friend. What would your best friend say about you? Really focus in on what is positive about you.

You are worthy of all of what you desire my friend.

You are the only one responsible for what makes you happy. If you think your happiness relies on a certain circumstance or a certain person, then you want to think again.  Sure, certain people can bring happiness to who we are, but they are not responsible for being your reason for happiness.  That is a lot of pressure to put on another and you are giving that person much of your own ‘power’ by thinking they are responsible for your happiness.

Be happy for you. Let your own thoughts and experiences create your happiness.  Let your happiness come from within and not a circumstance or person.  When you make the shift of creating your own happy, you will empower and build your own vibration to a higher vibration of happiness.

beth mccain 33431

When you are feeling unhappy, do you make excuses as to why you are unhappy? Maybe you blame it on the bad traffic or maybe you blame it on your boss’ foul mood, or maybe you blame it on the weather, others, or life itself.

Making excuses only prolongs your unhappiness.  You and only you are responsible for your happiness. No person, place, or thing is causing unhappiness; it is your own thoughts and feelings that are creating being unhappy.

What would happen if you chose to be happy in each moment?  What would happen if you were having a challenge, yet you were able to appreciate the moments?  What would happen if you didn’t blame some one or some thing on you being unhappy.

What if you chose to be happy in all your moments?  You would be happy.

Don’t wait on happiness thinking that you will only find that happiness if you have enough money, or have the perfect soul mate, or have the perfect job.  You can be happy now.  You can enjoy and appreciate now and be even happier when your outcome comes out as you had hoped.

No ifs, ands, or buts; you can be happy without the excuses. Take responsibility for your own happiness.
