Manifesting Power

Through Your Role

I strongly believe that we all are leaders in our own lives! Do you agree? Do you take a leadership role in your own life for you and your whole being? Simply put it is about taking the time to value who we are and what we have to offer! 

Your love and confidence as well as your intelligence and intuition! Tuning into your power and tapping into your spirit. Basically living your life on your own terms!

To nurture and nourish your whole being! Through building a great relationship and deeper connection with your whole being. By putting perfection and high expectations on the down low. By being the person you are!

Your Mindset

How do you perceive and receive your world and the world around you? 

Ask Yourself . . .

  • Are you serving your best interests?

You need to know the “whys” when it comes to what you need and want as well as crave and desire! Being mindful and fully aware. Tuning into your senses. You also need to know how to release and let go of what is no longer serving your best interests! 

  • Are you stunting your growth in any way?

You matter and are important! If you are willing and open, you are more than capable. You have to open yourself up to the possibilities and opportunities!

  • Are you sticking to your rules when it comes to acting?

Sometimes your mind rules your actions! You may have to throw out the rule book. You may need to let your heart in to play more! 

  • Are you proactive or reactive?

You need to make the time to connect with your whole being! Find that quiet space to center and connect. Reflect and release. Discover the movement and flow to your whole being again! 


Being . . . Creating . . . Living . . .

Your Dimension

You are more than one dimension! You have breadth by learning, developing and growing. You have depth through your experiences. All of what you experience enhances and expands you and your world!

A major part of adding dimension is through building a relationship with yourself!

  • Believing and trusting in yourself.
  • Knowing how you want to be treated to value yourself and your worth.
  • Nurturing and nourishing yourself and your whole being.
  • Answering those “whys” to ask for what you need.
  • Well being through self being; love, kindness, care, compassion, etc.

Your Journey

Remember you are the author in creating your story! You are the navigator in your journey!

It is about learning from the past and being in the present! What do you need? Are you being true to who you are? Be an active participant and show up for you in living your life!

Really strive for a good mindset and a fresh perspective on a daily basis! Love to hear your thoughts, please share.


Natural Movement

What Are You Practicing?

I have been thinking about movement lately, especially forward movement. For instance, why do some movements seem so natural while others seem like you are continuously pushing a boulder up a very steep hill. You either keep pushing or have a boulder coming at you like Indiana Jones in that one movie. Your body and your body language speak volumes!

How and when do you stop pushing and just try and go with the flow? Especially when you are not the go with the flow type. Scheduled versus spontaneity. Learning to navigate or asking someone else for directions. Mind and body working together as one! 


Moving . . .

You have choices, especially to choose what works best for you! Weighing the pros and the cons. To practice, learn and develop. To progress to experience growth and gain life experiences. To find your “whys” in what you need!

To learn more about who you are and how you work! To find your potential as well as your talents and gifts. To discover what matters most. To create and live!

“You have a way to unstick what’s stuck, unblock what’s blocked,
fix what needs fixing, and create what needs creating.
You just need to practice this way a bit, every day, to make it yours.
We’re at a crossroads today, each of us, and all together. It has something to do with what we practice.”~Michael Taylor


Bridging . . .

It matters in how you live your life! That true essence of self and being true to who you are. That love and support. That caring and receiving and giving. It matters in how you care for yourself and others, especially your greatest someones! 

  • To find that inspiration and motivation that drives you.
  • To discover those loves and passions that give you ambition.
  • To be an active and productive being.
  • To achieve and be successful.
  • To be happy and healthy whole, well beings.
  • To living the simpler life.

I have learned that a good majority of things can be doable, changeable, fixable . . . Also, survivable! Creating and recreating. Changing and adapting. Transitioning and transforming. You are in charge to be who you are and to create (i.e. a life, happiness, health, etc.) and live for yourself!

Happiness

Exercise It???

Have you heard of Will Jelbert and his book called The Happiness Animal? Healthy body = healthy eating and healthy exercise. Healthy happiness = healthy exercise. “How we exercise our spirit determines the strength of our happiness.” 

In The Happiness Animal, you are introduced to the five muscles that can be exercised to make your “Happiness Animal” stronger. “What if you could exercise your happiness like you exercise your body?” Why not give it a go!

  1. Tolerance
  2. Kindness
  3. Honesty
  4. Awareness
  5. Courage

Talk about a revelation that just resonates with me! 

I did not know I was working a happiness muscle in being curious. I am a questioner. Searching for answers. Seeking out and striving to learn, grow and experience!

I think we all question and ask ourselves.

  • Who Am I?
  • What Is My Purpose?
  • What Do I Want To Do?

I think we also tune into our emotions, feelings and thoughts.

Do you tune into your emotions, feelings and thoughts?

  • It is important to accept, own and respect your emotions and feelings.
  • It matters to have a voice and express yourself, especially sharing your thoughts, talents, stories, etc.
  • It is okay to be humble and vulnerable.
  • It is good to have humility.

We all need our tribe along with that sense of belonging and being part of a community. That rawness and realness in people who truly are connecting to their emotions, stories and reality. That empowerment to be who you really are from the inside out. That force and energy within you that powers you and has you in control. That strength of acceptance and humanness!

Here’s to Exercising, Especially Our Happiness and Healthiness. Love to Hear Your Thoughts, Please Share.


Golden Glitter

Wandering . . .

Ms. Healthy Diva Life recently wrote a blog post called Feeling Good & A Little Lost. It does feel good to feel good. It is okay to feel lost. Just ease into the wandering, right!

Talking about feeling lost made me think of J.R.R. Tolkien. “All That Is Gold Does Not Glitter” is a poem written by J.R.R. Tolkien for his fantasy novel The Lord of the Rings.

“All that gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king.” ~J.R.R. Tolkien


Glittery . . . Shiny . . .

We all experience that feeling of being lost and at times we may find we lost ourselves too in the process! How do you continue moving forward? How do you get back on track in living your life? This is when you need to take a time out and make time for yourself to do a self check!

Ask Yourself . . .

  • Do you know your “whys” when it comes to what you want?
  • Do you know what you want to do?
  • Do you know what makes you happy?
  • Do you know how to release and let go of what is no longer working best for you?

You wonder and wander! It is perfectly normal and okay to not know where you are going at times in living your life. Tune into your emotions and tap into your feelings to connect to your inner being. Really ask yourself the questions above to determine what truly excites you to move your whole being again! 


Wandering . . .

Focusing inward helps you in being aware of your mind and various energies as well as your heart and physical being too! It is perfectly normal and okay to be all over the place. Take the time to stretch your comfort zone in trying new things. Make mistakes to learn and develop. Gain new experiences to experience growth. Really wander!

Look at what you do have in your life! Appreciate and celebrate it. Be grateful and thankful. Each and everything received and given is a true blessing!

My grandmother talked about patience (which I have very little of – ha!). She talked about . . . In having patience you will find your purpose. Challenges, stresses and struggles will test your patience fully and completely. Throughout that test and the test of your patience will come your plan; your game plan, your next plan, etc. You will get through it and become a stronger person for it!


Making Time to Be!

We all grow by experiencing change! Practice to learn, develop and experience. We all change to transform! Practice to progress. We all go through life transitions! 

Practice . . . maintaining your center of balance, your health and happiness, and feeling good about yourself and where you are at. Be the Captain in steering your life, especially your healthiness and happiness!

Practice . . . self love and self care and compassion, owning and embracing your messy self, and counting your many blessings. The love you have for yourself matters in being there for yourself and your greatest someones! 

Practice . . . sharing, receiving and giving, coming from a place of love, and following your heart and your loves and passions and desires. Really lead with your heart and the rest of you will fall into place and be along for the ride!

Practice . . . that life is not a sprint to the finish line and to take the time to wander, get lost, find your way, and just journey along!

Easy Does It

For 2017

Here we are in May 2017. Did you ease into 2017? Or Was it more like a rush with a hop, skip and jump added in? Continuously remind yourself to keep in simple, okay!

1st – You are your own top priority! Self care is important and not selfish. Taking care of yourself gives you more energy to be there for yourself as well as for others. It matters in being an active and productive being too!

  • Love you for who you are.
  • Give YOU self love and self care.
  • Believe, value and trust yourself.
  • Be your best friend, greatest cheerleader and biggest supporter.

When you come from a place of love in following your heart you experience, grow and transition! Think about your successes and milestones. Think about your missteps and failures. Think about the opportunities and possibilities. What are are you going for and putting yourself out there to be and do?

Be mindful to be inspired, motivated and productive! To find direction, meaning and purpose. To tune into your emotions, feelings and thoughts. Remember to check in with yourself and your whole being too! 

2nd – Your health and wellness is number one and the rest is secondary! Find that health, wellness and happy lifestyle choice that works best for your whole being. Remember to relax and rest as well as release and let go of what is no longer serving you. Your being will thank you for how it feels!

  • Instead of thinking urgency give yourself the freedom to control the speed.
  • Communicate and listen as well as connect and engage you, yourself and your whole being.

Discover the best parts of yourself and find your loves and passions! You need to love you for you and support your own growth. You need to hold firm to your values and appreciate who you really are. You need to create space and set boundaries. The only one that is going to do that for you is YOU! 

Learn how to listen! Tuning and tapping into the inner you. Building and deepening those connections with yourself and your greatest someones. Engaging your mind and heart to be active, experience growth and gain life experiences!

3rd – You are responsible and accountable when it comes to driving your own life! Time is precious as well as limited so use it well. Really tune into what you love to do and make the time to do it. Remind yourself what truly matters to you in living your life!

  • Own your power and create great energy for your whole being.

You find your center as well as that balance between your mind and your heart! You find that focus to drive you and your passions and ambitions. You use your time more efficiently and your energy more effectively. You remain true to who you are by living from within!

You need to believe in your own abilities! You have the knowledge, resources and tools to problem solve and make decisions that are best for you. You have the ability to learn and develop as well experience growth and gain experiences. Really tune into your inner being and what you need, crave, want, and desire!

4th – You need to play, laugh and have fun! Get curious and explore. Discover the NEW! Find the simple and light hearted through your joy, healthiness, happiness, and wellness!

  • What do you dream about?
  • What do you desire?
  • What drives you?

Really connect to your creative self and engage your mind to be free, loose and creative! Expose yourself to the NEW! Take what you know or are learning to the next level. Let go, make mistakes, and really reveal your abilities and capabilities! 

Be in the present moment focused on that task at hand! You can multitask later. Stop to breathe, slow down to pause. Try stilling your being, clearing your mind and connecting to your inner being in your whys, needs and craves!

Manifesting Investing

In Your Whole Being

Do you think of yourself as an investment? I hope you do!

When you truly feel good about yourself, you are less likely to fall for those mind traps and physical challenges you place on yourself! Yes, we all want to look good, especially on the outside and how we present ourselves to others. However, it does not define who you are!

  • What do you do to invest in your whole being, inside and out?
  • How are you worthy to yourself?
  • How do you value yourself, especially in what matters the most to you?

You have to really check in with yourself and your whole being from time to time! To see how you are doing overall. To see if you are using your time and energy efficiently and effectively. To see what you truly need!

  • How do you love yourself and your whole being?

You need to invest in YOU to get a great return on your investment! Taking care of your health and happiness. Doing more of what you love to do. Tuning into those passions and tapping into your creative being. To truly receive and give back to YOU!

  • How do you tap into your power, especially owning it?

Remember it is okay to have those moments where you are not on top of it! You realize it and that is a good first step. Stop and pause to reflect and release. It is okay to embrace it, come to terms with it and keep moving forward one step at a time!

What Do You Do to Add to Your Bank for Abundance In Having a Fulfilling Life? Love to Hear, Please Share!

 


Manifesting Receiving

To Receive, Release & Give

I was in the process of writing a blog post on manifesting receiving when I read an article On Mind Body Green by Dr. Danielle Dowling called How to Manifest Abundance In Your Relationships & Finances. Her words just SPOKE to me. The main reason her words spoke to me is the connection between receiving and releasing!

Dr. Dowling’s number one tip for abundant success is RELEASE in any are of your life! She talks about saying to yourself “I release so that I may receive.”

  • Release resentment (that you haven’t gotten it yet).
  • Release expectation (of what it should look like).
  • Release attachment (to the eventual outcome).

I think about that desire for abundance and how to attract it. I think about that need of getting what you want in your life to live your life.

It is like a teeter totter! On one side release seems simple and easy. On the other side release can be difficult and challenging. I think it comes down to being true to who you are by believing, valuing, loving, and trusting yourself! 

In knowing your essential inner being you can go after what you need, crave, want, and desire! You can find your healthiness and happiness. You can discover your passions and loves. It starts with you and from within you!

It is about building a good foundation for yourself! Practicing to shift, change and transition to develop and grow. Experiencing to live a good, full life. Creating your story as you journey along!

It is about being there and helping yourself connect more deeply to who you are and your world!

Really connecting with your whole being . . .

  • To Communicate
  • To Listen
  • To Interact
  • To Engage

It is about that triple combo in RECEIVING, RELEASING and GIVING! Being open to the possibilities and opportunities. Learning when you need to slow down, step back or even speed up a bit. Being, doing and going for what really matters to you and what you truly love to do!

Ask Yourself and Think About . . .

  • What are you learning and experiencing?
  • How are you developing and growing?
  • How do you tune into and tap into your curiosity and creativity?
  • What stories and memories are you creating along your journey?
  • How are you communicating, interacting, connecting, and engaging with yourself?
  • How are you effectively using your time and energy?

How Are You Manifesting Receiving, Releasing and Giving? Love to Hear, Please Share.


Intuitive Self Care

For Your Whole Well Being

Do you take 5 minutes or even 30 minutes to tune into your intuitive self?

  • To unleash your imagination.
  • To get curious.
  • To do absolutely nothing.

To tune into yourself and tune everything else out!

Being able to listen and act on your intuition is possible and with a little practice soon enough becomes second nature! You learn to believe and trust in yourself, especially in making decisions and choices. You learn to think more clearly and that gives you clarity in tuning into your intuition and coming from a place of love by following your heart. You learn to be one with yourself and tap into what you need, want, desire, and crave!

Does your intuitive self crave creativity and/or exploration? To play, laugh and have fun. Do you integrate creativity throughout your day? To find that inspiration and motivation. Creativity is good for the whole well being; mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. 

Getting creative is like breathing and moving. It promotes self love and self confidence. It cultivates healthiness and happiness. It creates innovation and thinking outside the box. It gives you a mood booster as well as an energy booster!

Some Creative Ideas to Consider Doing

  • Drawing or coloring.
  • Journaling or writing.
  • Singing or playing a musical instrument.
  • Listening to music or dancing.
  • Tuning into the “green spaces” either indoors or outdoors.
  • Gathering inspiration and motivation through various mediums.
  • Tapping into your senses.
  • Wondering and wandering.

DO What MOVES You!!! Spark your curiosity. Make the world come alive around you. Discover the magic that lets your creative being come out to play!

Just imagine how much more aware and awake you can be by tuning into your intuition! How much more you will open yourself up to experience. How much more you will want to slow down the pace to soak it in and savor it. How much more you will be in the present moment and just want to be!

Manifesting Love

Love Sweet Love

We all search and seek out love! How do you manifest love for yourself? How about others, especially your greatest someones?

  • To love and be loved.
  • To give and to receive.
  • To belong and be a part of something.

DSC_0453

How do you open your heart as well as your mind to receive the love you are searching and seeking?

  • Knowing what you want and why.
  • Learning to forgive, especially yourself.
  • Learning how to be open to receive what you want.
  • Learning to release and let go of what is no longer serving you.
  • Stretching . . . experiencing . . . growing . . .

Really think about shifting gears! Coming from a place of love versus fear. Getting the mind and the heart together as one team. Believing, valuing and trusting yourself by being who you are!

Knowing

Do you know what you want and why! What do you want to receive? What do you want to give? A key piece in manifesting is getting clear on exactly what it is you want and the reasoning behind it (aka the why?)!

  • What is your practice? Coming from a place of love in following your heart.
  • What is your focus? Being clear on why you want what you want.
  • What is your passion? Doing more of what you love.
  • What is your purpose? Tuning and tapping into your hopes and wishes as well as your dreams and desires.

DSC_0434

Learning

Learning to forgive and letting go of the guilt in being and doing for YOU! You will start to open up more. You will start to attract more of what you want. In being more open and in attracting more of what you want you will open yourself to the possibilities and opportunities!

What are you opening to? Involve your mind and heart and whole being. Engage your senses and feelings. Imagine and envision. In knowing what it is you want you bring that into your life by manifesting, attracting, going for it, and doing it! 

Practicing and learning to release and let go! Especially of what is no longer working for you or serving your best interest. This is not so easy when you want to be the one in control! Think about how you can be more open to receiving what you want.

  • Being curious and exploring.
  • Adventuring and trying new things.
  • Being flexible in order to shift, transition and just adapt.
  • Learning, developing and experiencing growth.
  • Stretching yourself and your whole being from the inside out.
  • Gaining those life experiences and lifetime memories.
  • Expressing what you want and why!

Experiences Are Part of Your Story

Creating Your Story One Experience, One Moment, One Chapter At A Time

You find your path and define it as you go along. Your path sets you on the course to journey along. Those experiences and those moments become a part of the story you create.


Journeying Along . . .

  • There are times you have to ask for help along the way. This helps you communicate, interact, connect, and engage.
  • There are times you have to ask for directions. This helps you in stopping to process. This helps you in pausing to breathe. This helps you redirect.
  • There are times you have to unpack and regroup; mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. This helps you create space and set boundaries. This also helps you learn how to release and let go of what is no longer working or serving your best interests.


Opening Up . . . Being . . . Letting Go . . .

It can be uncomfortable to open yourself up, however; vulnerability helps you grow and evolve! Being vulnerable is okay and not a weakness or flaw. It can become an essential part of who you are and how you express yourself by living from within your being! Humility goes a long way too.

We all experience the good, the bad, at times the ugly, and everything in between! You can be in control of how you make decisions and choices. You can be in control of how you respond and react. It can serve you or sabotage you and you choose which one it will be! 

Make the time to slow down and be more! All that rushing about. All those excuses about not having the time. Stop the “busyness” – your 20’s turn into your 40’s and your 40’s into your 80’s before your own eyes in hurrying and rushing about to the next and the next and the next!


Sink Your Toes Into the Sand!

Remember . . .

  • MAKE Time For Yourself. Make the space you need for you and your whole well being.
  • DO What You Love. Find the fun and play as well as the joy and happiness.
  • TAKE Note of the Beauty Around You. Practice to progress . . . Be grateful, appreciative and thankful . . . Celebrate more . . .
  • EMBRACE Your Journey. Explore, adventure, travel . . . Communicate and interact as well as engage and connect . . . Learn, experience growth and gain life experiences . . .
