Bless the Water

Today is World Water Day and many are getting together all over the world to bless the water on our planet and take steps towards cleaning and restoring the water supply throughout our world.

ALL Water is Sacred.

Take a moment to watch this short video by Dr. Bruce Lipton and see for yourself the energetic connection between water and us. It is vital for our existence. Our blessings and positive thoughts truly make a difference.

On the Equinox, Saturday March 19th at 5pm Pacific, there is a Synchronized Meditation and Water Blessing all around the world. If this speaks to you, please join the meditation.

To learn more about the connection of our thoughts and matter, I highly recommend reading Biology of Belief by Dr. Bruce Lipton.



Choose Positive

Is your cup half full or half empty? Do you spend the majority of your time thinking about what is going wrong in your life or do you see the positive in every situation?

Regardless of our circumstances, we always (yes, always!) have a choice to see the positive side of life. If you aren’t used to doing that, it may take a bit of effort to switch your mind into thinking of the positive but doing so will produce amazing results. It actually re-wires your brains to be more positive!

So, make the choice to see, think and speak about the positive side of every situation. Do it daily, hourly. Look for the good. Really look for it.

Here are a few ways to help us do that is:

  • Start your day saying three things you are grateful for
  • Keep a Gratitude Journal
  • Play uplifting music
  • Watch comedies and movies that make you smile
  • Read books that are inspiring
  • Compliment others, especially those who annoy your
  • Go for a walk in nature and marvel at all the miracles around you
  • Say “I love you” to others… and yourself
  • At the end of the day forgive (others and yourself) and then let it go
  • Before you go to sleep, go over the positive things that happened that day

The choice is yours. What will you choose?

Happiness First, Success Follows

Most of us have spent our lives thinking that we need to be successful first and then we will be happy. Shawn Achor’s entertaining TED Talk proves otherwise.

If this inspires you, consider joining the Happiness First, Success Follows Facebook Group for inspirational ideas. A 21 day journey starts tomorrow, although any day you join would be a good day to start being happy.


10 Tips for a Peaceful Day

A few reminders for all of us:

  1. When you wake up in the morning, thank the Universe for giving you the day ahead. Expect that your day will be wonderful.
  2. Sit in silence before getting out of bed – even 5 to 10 minutes will make a difference. Quiet your mind and simply observe the sounds of your room without judgement.
  3. Walk in nature, even if it’s simply in your neighborhood. Listen to the sounds of nature – the birds chirping, the wind in the trees.
  4. Eat foods that grow from plants and trees; slowly eliminate manufactured food.
  5. Drink plenty of water.
  6. Smile and speak positively to everyone you meet.
  7. Help someone in need.
  8. Get in touch with a friend or loved one.
  9. Forgive someone who hurt you. Make peace with your past so you can move on in peace.
  10. Before you go to sleep, thank the Universe for all the blessings of the day; send love and blessings to everyone.



Timing Our Day Consciously

Taking part in Oprah and Deepak’s 21 Day Meditation Experience Manifesting True Success has given me food for thought. In particular, today I am thinking about how I spend my day.

Too often I feel unsatisfied at the end of the day. Whether it was not having time for fun or not accomplishing something that I had planned to do.

Today’s meditation “Timing For Success” showed how we can look back at our day and feel good about it, if we follow the model for mastering time from psychiatrist, Dr. Daniel Siegel. His work shows the best way to have a healthy brain that supports a person’s well-being. He suggests dividing our time into seven different ways each day.  They are:

  • Sleep time – to get a full night restful sleep
  • Physical time – to move and let your body be active
  • Focus time – to be alone for awhile to concentrate on what matters to you
  • Time in – for meditation, prayer or self-reflection
  • Time Out – for simply resting or existence
  • Play time – for fun in a carefree mood
  • Connecting time – intimate private time between those you love and care for

Deepak goes on to explain that this isn’t just about having a well-planned day.  Each step optimizes different areas of the brain which leads to expanded awareness and a sense of fulfillment.

I like that. It makes sense to me.

We can strive to be masters of our time each day and have a map to help us on our way.


Reflect and Rejoice

January 1 is typically the day that many people make New Years Resolutions.  While that can be a worthy practice, I prefer to do what I call “reflect and rejoice” in early January.

Allow me to explain.

The start of a new year provides us all with the opportunity to change our calendars to a new one. If you are like me, the old calendar will have birthdays, anniversaries and appointments scribbled all over it. Before you recycle that old calendar, take the time to go through each month looking at the various days and the notes written. Reflect on the memories that each one provides and rejoice or give thanks for the experiences they provided.

Whether the past year was happy or sad, each day provided an opportunity for growth physical, mental or spiritual. In the end, it’s all good.

Happy New Year!


Moving On Slowly and Gently

Sometimes life throws a curve ball at us. When it does, it can be hard to find any peace or happiness for a time. Life becomes a struggle.

But there is a way to get out of it. It takes only a moment in time.

Start by observing what you are going through. Don’t try to change it. Don’t act on it. Don’t judge it. Just observe where your thoughts are taking you and what feelings you are having.

Then, slowly and gently, make a conscious effort to look at something else in the room or outside. Pay attention to one item. It could be as simple as looking at a chair or a picture hanging on the wall. Really look at it, as if seeing it for the first time. Look at the tiniest details. Don’t judge it. Just observe.

Then, listen to any sounds that you hear around you. Perhaps it’s a clock ticking, the fridge humming or a bird chirping. Put all your attention on the sound. Again, just observe. Just listen.

Then, take a brief moment to give gratitude to whatever you observed – yourself, something in your home, office or outdoors, the sound.

Do this as often as you like throughout the day. Take only a few seconds to start with, then eventually allow it to expand into longer periods.

Observe the change over time. Be gentle with yourself and know that it’s all good.
