We can’t possibly know it all. There are many things in this Universe that are a mystery but just because they are a mystery doesn’t mean that they don’t have meaning or aren’t real.

As humans, we only see a certain amount of colors but there are more colors that we didn’t know even existed. Some animals see those colors that we can’t possibly see, but we know they are there.

Next time you think that your life feels limited or you feel like life is on automatic, remember that there is so much more in the Universe that you can’t possibly see.  It doesn’t make it less real just because you don’t understand its meaning.

Those feelings and thoughts of limited and automatic are what you feel your life may be, but there are many more experiences out there to be lived.  They may be experiences you have never even experienced, but they exist. How about stepping out of the zone of limited and step into the zone of unlimited and unconventional through opening up your mind to the bigger of the Universe.

All you have to do is think about it. Tell yourself that you want unlimited, you want new colors, you want new experiences.  The mystery will fall away and you will unfold new possibilities into your life.

All you have to do is believe and take action.

time to release

Could you go through a whole day without saying or feeling something negative about yourself? Could you love yourself like the Universe loves you?  Could you let go of all the preconceived notions of what is normal or right and just know within that you are ‘just right’ as you are in all you do? Could you not look at another and compare yourself th them whether it be about clothing or physical features in some way?

Could you take just one day and compliment and appreciate yourself in all that you say and do?  Could you take one day to love all of who you are without one critical thought?

You are loved my friend.  Now it is time to take the time to love yourself.  Let go of those thoughts of the critical voice of judgment and shift your focus to the loving voice within who knows and sees you as a perfect spiritual being having a physical experience.

It is in the everyday thoughts that we need to pay attention to if we are wanting to create a more positive and abundant life.

Our mind can go on automatic in the every day of life.  When we have the same kind of day through working, running errands, and doing all the things that we ordinarily do; we start to let our mind go on automatic.  And when the mind goes on automatic, we are at the whim of what the mind thinks whether it is positive or negative.

It is in the ordinary of the day that we need to be conscious of where the mind takes our thoughts.  When we are able to understand that our mind is on automatic, then we can shift our focus to a place that will create a more positive present and future.

Instead of getting caught up in the ordinary of the day, how about shifting focus toward the extraordinary in the ordinary? Like a giggle from a baby or a beautiful sky full of white billowy clouds or a puppy and its enthusiasm as it runs toward you to be hugged.  Everyone has extraordinary moments in every single day.  All you have to do is open your mind and heart and just look. See the day in a whole other way. Seek out the extraordinary and the extraordinary will begin to come into your life.

When in doubt, be aware of your thoughts.  When you see that you are doubting, ask yourself if the doubt is a way of keeping yourself from being disappointed.  When you are in doubt, you are thinking that maybe, just maybe, things won’t work out.  Not only is doubt creating a cloud of doubt around what you are doubting, but it also creates more to doubt in life because what you are thinking creates a direction of where you are going.

When in doubt, first be aware of the doubt.  Then think of what would be the opposite to that doubt.  For example: Let’s say you are waiting for an answer when it comes to a promotion at work. Every time you think of it, you think that you’re probably not going to get it because they just haven’t called yet.  That is the moment to be conscious of the doubting thought.  You have no idea that you’re not getting the promotion; you just doubt because that way, if you don’t get it, you prepared for it.  Now that you know where the thought came from, you can now shift your focus to what you can shift your focus to that makes you feel better.  You just might get that job.  You are good enough for it. You know it is a perfect fit for you.  As you shift focus toward the positive, you are creating a best case scenario that can help your perception to see the positive and that vibration brings more positive into your life. You may get the promotion or not, but if you don’t, you will have something come into your life that is the same or even better because of how you shift your focus.

Inner work is what it takes to change your world. Change your thoughts and you will change your world.

How is your physical surroundings?  Is your home or bedroom full of clutter?  And do you feel cluttered within as well? If you do, the physical act of cleaning clutter in your room or home, is helpful to your inner clutter as well. By organizing and letting go of the old, you are making more room for the new.

Letting go of the old thoughts and beliefs that no longer serve your life and replacing those thoughts with good feeling thought patterns and actions, you will be creating clarity within.  And clarity within is a part of creating the direction of where you go in life.

Clarity can begin within but if you just can’t seem to find it, do a little physical cleaning.  It amazingly will create clarity within as well as in the physical.

With all that goes on in the world, we can begin to wonder if there is more negative than positive.

Or we can remember that everything, yes everything, comes from love.  It is the belief and opinions of others that can create a negative or a positive; just as we can do the same.

How about instead of wondering and worrying about all the negative in the world, we shift focus to find what is positive?  How about we focus on what love there is in the world?

As we shift our focus from the negative to the positive, we shift our focus to love and appreciation. As we experience life through love and appreciation, then you are creating a vibration that is higher than most.  A higher vibration comes from a greater love.  A higher vibration can heal; not only heal others but the world.

The negative is just a way of knowing that we are walking away from love. We are going in another direction.  The negative can help us to realize what we want through what we don’t want.  The negative serves its purpose, but it isn’t necessary to focus on it. Learn from the negative and then move forward in a positive mindset. Let go of the negative and embrace the love and appreciation in the positive.

giving and receiving

You are made up of thoughts, beliefs, and experiences.  You came into this physical world to experience life.  You are a spiritual being who just happened to choose to be physical.

And where you take your mind, your heart, and your thought, truly creates the path of where you go and are going.

And just because someone has experienced it in one way, doesn’t mean you have to experience life in that same exact way. You get to choose where your life goes.

Some live until they’re a hundred while others choose, before they became physical, to live a shorter physical life.  Either way, they’ve experienced a physical life that is whole and complete.

As my dad approaches 90 years old, I think of how fortunate he is to have lived so long and who knows, he could live another 20 years.

And then my sister passed earlier in life.  How fortunate that she got to come to this beautiful world and experience physical life.

Choose life my friend. Choose to enjoy, to appreciate, to love, to be kind, and to be compassionate.  Choose a positive attitude instead of a negative attitude. How we choose our direction can make a difference in how long we will be here…or not.  Since we don’t know exactly how long we have, we should treasure and love every moment, don’t you think?

Life is meant to be lived!

beth mccain quotes 77759

In every moment, you are experiencing life. You are experiencing life through a physical vessel. You are a spiritual being having a physical experience.  This means that you are observing, learn, and growing from your spirit within.  And your spirit within is an eternal lasting being which never dies but just lets go of the physical self when it is time.

Where you are doing exactly as you want in life or you’re working toward what you envision, or not paying attention yet living, you are doing just what you came to here to do…to experience.

Each and every experience brings about awareness to your true self. That awareness sees all the potential, it sees all aspects of the experience, and learns and grows through the observation of the physical.

Next time you wonder if you are truly on the right path, remember that you are on the right path in that moment as that path may be showing you what you don’t want as well as what you want.

Every experience matters whether you recognize it or not. Your spiritual self within recognizes and continues to learn and grow.

Sometimes we can get into such an everyday routine that we can forget to enjoy and appreciate the moments. Our mind can think only about what needs to be done in a day and we get into a routine that is not only routine in the physical, but routine in the mind as well. By forgetting about appreciation and enjoying, we truly aren’t living but just existing.

Isn’t today a great day to become conscious of the joy in the everyday?  To be mindful of what is in your life that you appreciate as you go about the busy of the day?

Do your best to get out of the routine within your mind and see each day as a new opportunity to enjoy and appreciate life.  In the routine of life, you can find the extraordinary in the ordinary, you can appreciate and enjoy what you have in all of your moments, even in the everyday.  Build your positive vibrations in all of your days and moments.

There are times where we can look at all that is happening in the world and wonder how it got to where it is.  We can get caught up in all the negative news and stories.  And that can take our view and begin to feel like the world is truly a bad place with bad people.  This can feel full of sadness, anger, and upset.

We know that there is good and bad in this world. We live in a physical world with others that have different thoughts, beliefs, opinions, and attitudes. This means that many will think that their thoughts and beliefs are the only thing that could be right.  This can cause a strife between those that feel they need to be right no matter what the consequence. Two different thoughts, two different beliefs.  Neither truly right or wrong but they can only see the way they see it.

Where you take your thoughts can change everything. It begins with your own personal thought and what direction you choose to go.  This world is quite amazing and beautiful. What if you took today and shift your focus to what and who is beautiful in your world. When you hear or see a negative story, send that negative a shot of love and balance, deal with it in a balanced calm within, and then let go of the negative story, Then shift your focus to what is beautiful in the day.  Shift your focus to what you can help to change through a positive thought instead of a negative.

There is a big difference between a peace rally and an anti war rally.  Choose kindness over rudeness.  Choose love instead of hate. Choose to see the beautiful in the world as the world changes and transforms.  Negative comes along and create upheaval, but after upheaval, comes positive change.

Focus on the positive, my friend.  You can find the beauty in this world.

Happiness is within your grasp at this very moment. You see, happiness doesn’t depend on how much money you make, it doesn’t depend on if you had a good week or a bad week, and it doesn’t depend on what another says to you.

Happiness has, and always will be, within you. If you aren’t feeling happiness, start with what makes you happy.  That doesn’t mean you think about what doesn’t make you happy in your moments.  You make a focused effort on thinking about what brings happiness to you.  It doesn’t have to be something big.  It can be as small as a joke that you heard or a photo that brought a smile to your face. Those small moments add up to bigger moments when it comes to happiness.

Make an effort to choose happiness today. Keep it in the front of your mind and heart as you experience your day. Shift your focus to seeing, feeling, touching, and hearing what makes you happy. As you focus on happiness, then happiness will open up within you.

Take a moment to focus on your breathing.  As you breathe in, envision breathing in calm, balance, and clarity.  As you exhale, envision breathing out confusion, indecisiveness, worry, and fear.  Keep doing this until you feel that you are feeling a balance within.

Then breathe in the thought ‘all is well and will be well no matter what the experience.’ As you breathe it is feel that calm, that balance, and that clarity.  In your exhale, breath out doubt, fear, and worry leaving you with that ‘all is well’ thought and feeling.

Do this whenever you get the chance. This is a way of creating a positive vibration as you let go of a negative vibration.

Think about how a positive thought can make you feel.  It can bring about enthusiasm, joy, understanding, love, kindness, passion, and compassion.  It brings up all that lifts the spirits, doesn’t it?

Now think about how a negative thought can make you feel. It can bring anger, frustration, sadness, fear, and worry.  It literally makes you feel as if all is lost and at the very least you feel out of sorts and grumpy.

Negative thought can’t be avoided. It just happens, but you have a choice in how you deal with it and how you release it.

You do have to deal with it or else it will still be within you festering, but you can deal with it in a more positive way.

Anger can be used to create change.  If you use it as a catalyst for what you want to change, then it has its purpose.  It is when you hold on to the anger, and no longer use it as a catalyst, that can be the problem. Then you are just building more anger, but if you use it as the catalyst and then build a positive focus of change, then the anger has served you well. That negative has actually turned into a positive.

All you need is a freedom of choice and everyone can think within their mind freely. When you stay conscious of where your mind takes you, and fine tune it along the way, then you will be creating an unfolding of a positive path full of unlimited possibilities.

Words mean nothing until we put feeling to them. Let’s say you say with intense passion, “Life is wonderful!” and you truly mean it, then those words and feeling will create more of life that is wonderful. But if you say, “Life is wonderful!” and you are just saying  the words but don’t really mean it, then you will have come into your life that very vibration of ‘don’t mean it’ and it won’t make life more wonderful.

The Universe knows your genuine vibration. It knows when you fake it, mean it, hate it, or love it.  It sends back to you the same vibration that you send out.  It may come in a different form, but it will still have the feel of where you are in life.

Be genuine, my friend. Do all you can to reach the higher vibrations of love, kindness, and compassion. Reach for the vibrations of wonderful, happy, inspired, and joy.

Life truly is what you make it.  And remember that you can’t fool the Universe into thinking you’re positive.  You have to genuinely be positive.

We all have different thoughts and unique views of life.  And even though they are different, it doesn’t mean that either is right, or wrong; it is what is seen and felt from the different views.   Both can be right…

Take a look at the photo above. In my view, this is a beautiful photo of Spring; the puffy white clouds, the surreal blue sky, and the rolling hills with the flowers in the foreground, bring joy and beauty to my heart and my spirit. It feels ‘right’ to me.

Someone else may look at the photo and see something completely different. They had prefer the desert with its shades of reds, browns, and blacks. They may love the hot weather and the beautiful of rocks.  They may not resonate with the photo above.  Their ‘right’ photo may just be the desert.

Neither of us are right or wrong, are you?  We both have our thoughts and feelings about it.

So what does this mean?  This means that we are living our own life experience through our own thoughts, views, environments, and upbringing. Each of us sees beauty in different ways. We need to respect the beauty of another and know that just because it isn’t your beauty, doesn’t mean it isn’t beautiful to someone.

Yet another moment to create a positive thought of all our unique ways in life.

It doesn’t have to by your way or their way. You can love what you love and respect others for what they love.

Beauty is truly in the eyes of the beholder.

 

beth mccain quotes 777777

Let’s say that you day has been amazing. All has just been going just as you want it to. You are pleased and feeling good. In those moments, you are creating positive vibrations.

Now let’s say you are having one of those days where everything isn’t going as you wanted it to. You’re complaining and grumbling.  In those moments, you are creating negative vibrations.

But what would happen if you were having a grumbling kind of day and you choose to bring your vibration up to a more positive mood? Maybe you had moments to complain about, but instead of complaining you, let go of that feeling and thought, and shifted toward what you appreciate and what brings a smile to your face. When you are sincere in changing your mood, then you are creating positive vibrations once again.  If you are not sincere and are faking it, then the negative vibration still applies because the Universe knows and brings to you in, ‘experience boomerang form’, a vibration like you are putting out to the Universe.

Every moment you have is a moment to create a direction of where your life will go. Do your best not to let the less than positive experiences take you into that negative vibration. Get to feeling better in some way. Strive to deal with any challenges with a positive mindset.

You are the one responsible for life changing…

Life is too short to be worrying or being afraid.  Why not embrace life and appreciate each moment that comes along instead?  You don’t have to worry until you have to worry so enjoy these moments that you have that you can create a positive mindset through.

Take time to enjoy your moments. If you spend your whole life worrying about what comes next, then you will have wasted those moments in worry.

Appreciate and experience life, my friend…

balancing of life

Oh those experiences that get us to feeling chaotic and less than positive.  They sure can bring a vibration down.

When experiencing chaos and overwhelming experiences, it is the perfect time to be conscious of how you are thinking and feeling. We tend to go on automatic when things get a bit crazy, but if you stay conscious of where your thought is going, then that means you are ready for the next step.  And that next step is to reach ‘within’ for balance and centering.

Chaotic experiences are usually full of emotion so your emotion is the first place you want to head to. Ask yourself to get into a calmer state of mind, body, and spirit. Take a few breaths in and a few breaths out while focusing on balance of mind, body, and spirit. In each moment, keep remembering to let go of the chaos through your exhale and inhale the thought of balance.

When you are taking steps to get life into a good place, then remember that by balancing you are taking a step toward a more positive experience by letting go of the chaotic thoughts and feelings and focusing in on balance and calm.

Once you’ve got yourself in a better state of mind, body, and spirit, don’t forget to give yourself a pat on the back of appreciation for knowing how to use one of the mental tools toward balance. Appreciation goes a long way my friend.

This moment, from what you are thinking and feeling, is creating your future. Think about all that you do and say in the day.  Think about all that you think, feel, and react in a day. All those thoughts, feelings, and reactions are creating a whole vibration that goes out into this Universe.  And the Universe then sends a vibration right back to us that represents what we sent out in vibration. It can take any shape, way, or form. And how it comes to you, how you perceive it, and what direction you take, creates your moments of now and the future.

Just think; if you could continually be conscious of where your thought goes and shift it when it is becoming agitated, to a more positive feeling vibration, then you will be sending out positive vibrations and in turn you will receive positive experiences and people in your life.

If a challenge comes up, then do the same. Deal with the experience from a positive mindset instead of a negative mindset.  When thinking of the future, think about what you want in that future and not about what you don’t want. Create best case scenarios instead of worst case scenarios.

Keep at it each and every day. Do what you can to lend the Universe a hand in opening up a positive life experience for you.

Events in your life do not define who you are. If you’ve been given a diagnosis of a medical condition, do your best to take care of it, but you don’t have to own the condition.  You don’t have to make it so important that it takes over your whole life. Give it the attention it needs and then keep enjoying life to the best of your ability.

This is the same for any experience you are having. If you’ve had an experience in the past that you are not proud of, remember that it is just an experience that helped you to become who you are today. It doesn’t define who you are.  It is only an experience.

Some will take on the negative thinking that it is who they are in life.  Really, who you really are, is a spiritual being having a physical experience. You learn and grow in spirit in all that you experience. Experiences of life are tools in helping to guide our spirit but they are not who we are my friend.

So next time you feel as if a single experience or event is who you are, look again.  It is only a part of your life experience. You are still a powerful being of light whose experiences help to guide you…
