Because I Believe ...........

(Disclaimer: This post will be updated weekly and sometimes daily because it just feels so good to do so, scroll down for the latest entries ......) 

 This is a post that's been sitting in the back of my brain for a couple of days.....

It's just a simple idea about what I believe and I want to update it as much as I can, just add to it as I go, as I live and I hope others will come here and share their lives as well.....

I would really like to know what you believe or as Oprah says, "What do you know for sure?"

As we get older, we still continue to grow and to refine....We change and hopefully we live a life that helps us to become more of ourselves.

Do you feel more comfortable in your skin? I know that since I've been spending time, quieting my mind and meditating, I am and I feel more relaxed. I'm calmer and life is just becoming one of more and more ease......ahhhhhhhhh!

I meditate because I believe that it helps me to live a life of beauty, abundance and one that is full of ease and joy! 10/17/17

Looking up at red maple leaves against a blue sky on a
beautiful  Autumn day in October in the MidWest!

10/19: Because I believe......

that  I can choose to feel love and joy every single day. I can open my mind and feel the love of my creator just by gazing into nature....

The turning of the leaves in October 2017 in the MidWest!

10/20 Because I believe......

We can experience joy each and everyday, no matter what is going on....

Beautiful Trees captured in October 2017. Welcome to Fall!

10/22/2017: Because I believe in the power of free will and we always have the power to choose.

We can either live as if life is heaven or hell! It seems to me that one choice is positively and unequivocally better than the other!

Walking along and I see these beauties on October 21, 2017!

10/23: Because I believe that we all can live in a happy place!

Sandpiper Cranes near my house in what appears to be one of their "happy places."

A little something extra today..........so good, watch video below:

10/27/2017: Ahhhhhhhh........

Because I believe that life is suppose to be fun and lived with ease. Somewhere along the line, this whole adventure becomes convoluted. If only, we'd look more to nature, to little kids or to the voice within..........

Because I believe that earning online can be easy and fun!

There are many ways to earn online and I prefer to make it easily and with as much fun as I can! If you like to browse or surf the net, you might as well make money while you do it......

Remember that abundance is all around us!

Because I Believe that WE are lacking nothing, that there is nothing that we need. We are complete, whole and infinite beings of LIGHT!

All things are possible! Will you believe?

You are the Center of the Universe! Just Believe!

We Must Risk Delight!

A Brief For The Defense 
by Jack Gilbert

Sorrow everywhere. Slaughter everywhere. If babies
are not starving someplace, they are starving
somewhere else. With flies in their nostrils.

But we enjoy our lives because that's what God wants.

Otherwise the mornings before summer dawn would not
be made so fine. The Bengal tiger would not
be fashioned so miraculously well. The poor women
at the fountain are laughing together between
the suffering they have known and the awfulness
in their future, smiling and laughing while somebody
in the village is very sick. There is laughter
every day in the terrible streets of Calcutta,
and the women laugh in the cages of Bombay.
If we deny our happiness, resist our satisfaction,
we lessen the importance of their deprivation.
We must risk delight. We can do without pleasure,
but not delight. Not enjoyment. We must have
the stubbornness to accept our gladness in the ruthless
furnace of this world. To make injustice the only
measure of our attention is to praise the Devil.
If the locomotive of the Lord runs us down,
we should give thanks that the end had magnitude.
We must admit there will be music despite everything.

We stand at the prow again of a small ship
anchored late at night in the tiny port
looking over to the sleeping island: the waterfront
is three shuttered caf├ęs and one naked light burning.
To hear the faint sound of oars in the silence as a rowboat
comes slowly out and then goes back is truly worth
all the years of sorrow that are to come.

Go and Get Inside of Your Vortex!

Inspirational Material by Abraham Hicks

Video by Abraham Hicks Fan (YouTube)

Content by Abraham via Esther Hicks


Your "vortex" as described by Abraham Hicks is the place where you are connected to your Source Energy and/or Being (you may call this God, Universe, Creator). So when the vortex is described, it is all about alignment and your connection to something Higher. When you are in your vortex, you are in alignment with who you really are.  

Great Highlights focusing on the feeling that you can conjure when thinking about, feeling or being in the"vortex" start at 17:35.

"I love the feeling of the vortex.

I like feeling good.

I like knowing my power.

I like feeling clarity.

I like feeling frisky.

I like feeling fun.

I like feeling/doing well.

I like rendez-vousing with good things.

I like having good timing.

I like the feeling of contentment.

I like the feeling of passion.

I love a feeling of satisfaction.

I love a quiet moment."

Remembering and Honoring Louise Hay

The love of the Creator surrounds me, dwells within me, goes before me and smooths the way for me. ~Louise Hay

Before there was "The Secret," there was a company called Hay House, founded by a woman who was thrust quite unexpectedly into a movement that she would lead and come to be associated with for decades. It was called, "positive thinking," "self-help," alternative medicine, quackery, foolishness and many other names with positive and negative connotations.  That woman, was none other than Louise Hay and she basically studied and changed her own life before encouraging all of us that, we indeed, could do the same. We were all, indeed, connected to a higher power, to something bigger and that influence could propel us above any minor ailments, challenges or obstacles that we were currently maximizing, feeling or experiencing. We could and can actually change our lives when we change our thoughts. 

"Several times throughout the day I let go of limited identities and remind myself of who I really am--a Divine, magnificent expression of life, created by a loving and infinite Intelligence." ~Louise Hay

Hay was a visionary. She helped individuals suffering with AIDS, long before it was fashionable or acceptable to do so and shortly thereafter, she became the face and name of a movement that gave hope to the hopeless as well as those who held impoverished minds and spirits.

"One day, I discovered magic. If I could really love myself, really love myself, incredible miracles would occur in my life. " Louise Hay

Many years ago, I read her best-selling book, "You Can Heal Your Life" and I was ever grateful to know that I could control my thought patterns and that anything that I focused on would expand. I also learned that "loving myself" was not vain or selfish but was necessary if I ever wanted to succeed or realize any of my dreams.  Those concepts have forever changed my life. We are indeed masters of our own fates, connected to a Power, a Being and a Knowing that is bigger than anything we can see and one that will lead us through and above anything. 

"My relationship with myself is eternal so I choose to love and accept myself and to talk to myself as I would to a beloved person in my life. ~Louise Hay

If you have never heard of Louise Hay, do yourself a favor and google her, visit the Hay House website or pick up one of her incredible books. You will not be disappointed and will probably feel a little lighter in doing so!

Although she is physically gone, her spirit and her work will live on forever.

Thank you Louise Hay for everything!

Wondering and Wandering

User Friendly Inspiration: Wondering and Wandering

“Far away in the sunshine are my highest inspirations. I may not reach them, but  can look up and see the beauty, believe in them and try to follow where they lead.” 
~Louisa May Alcott

Question, what can we fantasize about achieving in life beyond the ordinary, beyond what we currently see?

It all starts in the imagination, in our minds and it all starts with our thoughts.

What kinds of thoughts are we replaying everyday in our heads?

Are we operating on automatic or are we taking time everyday to consciously focus on those things that actually matter in our lives? It’s makes a difference. 

What do you image in your mind or tell yourself?

Are you complaining? Are you constantly talking about how hard it is to make ends meet and then wonder why this condition keeps showing up in your life?

You are creating it with your powerfully focused attention on that condition.

It is because you image it and remind yourself daily and it is so.

In your mind, do you see things working out or not.

One of my favorite mind mantras is, “Everything always works out for me. I just know that everything always works out for me.” I find these statements to be more effective than the alternative (like "nothing ever works out for me"). Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that I never have issues or challenges pop up but I sure move quicker through them than I have ever did before in my life. I’m sorry, life is too short to dwell in the negative, to give my power to anything that will drag me down to the gutter. I prefer to look and reach up as quickly as possible and connect to source.

There are many ways to connect to source (God, the universe, the creator or any other name that you prefer. Here are a few of my favorites.

1) 15 minute meditation. There are some quick and easy ones available on YouTube or you can choose to sit in a chair and focus on a sound, or a hum (refrigerator, birds outside) that will help you clear your mind and just focus. Sometimes, if I am having trouble of just clearing my mind, I will silently state, “Thank you, thank you, thank you” and it helps to calm and focus me.

2) Prayer. Written (silent) or Affirmed (out loud) always helps you to recognize and acknowledge a Higher Power (as well as help you to reconnect to source).

3) Going for a walk, getting outside in Nature. As the weather breaks, it’s much easier for us in 4 season states to begin to enjoy the blossoming of Spring and revel in the newness of another season (puts our lives and worlds in perspective).

4) Journaling can help you get your thoughts out and allow you to clear your head. Some individuals also use their writing to consult and talk to Source. I like making daily gratitude lists so that I acknowledge all of the expected and unexpected good that comes into my life.

5) Music. Music is a wonderful way to get uplifted and for some a way to connect to Source. I personally love inspirational songs that help me remember that I’m strong, I’m possible and created to soar!

We have been given a powerful gift that we can use for our benefit or detriment. When we choose to use our imagination, we realize that we can leap, create, accomplish any thing that our heart desires. We can begin to see our lives in new and renewed ways. We can see our futures as we have never dreamed them before. We can begin to dwell on these thoughts and create a new life before any one thing changes in our actual physical life but to get to the physical, the stuff, we have to see and believe it in our minds, our imagination. You have to image it and feel it.

What would you like to see or have happen in your life today?

Can you see it? Can you feel what it would be like to have, be or do it?

Is it clear? Write it down. Get into it. Dwell on it. Live it out loud first in your mind. Write down as many of the juicy details as you can. Feel it!

 “The body travels more easily than the mind and until we’ve limbered up our imagination, we continue to think as though we had stayed home.” 
~John Erksine

"May our bodies take us to spaces and places where our minds 
can wander and wonder."
