Archives for the month of: May, 2013

Last night something bad happened.  All the things I have been studying, practicing,and living evaded me. For a moment my ego took over,and negative emotions, and anger surfaced. I was provoked, but I know better. Things almost got ugly. I felt the flight or fight emotion take over and by the grace of god, I had the power to hold back.

Afterwards, I could not sleep.  My heat was pounding and my mind was racing. I spent the time reflecting on what happened. I realized it was a great lesson.  I have read countless books, meditated hundreds of times, and I realized I have a ways to go. I am human and make mistakes. The important thing is to learn from them and not repeat them.

What I realized is that it takes diligence and focus to stay in the moment and call upon inner knowledge and strength rather than react in the heat of the moment. I forgot that I cant expect anyone to treat me with the same love and respect I have for others.  And, it is up to me to control my emotions.

In the morning I continued thinking about the incident and I forgave myself, and the people involved.  They however did not forgive me.  It is not in their nature as they are filled with hate and anger.  This is reality.  I accept it and surrender to what is.  I regret my behavior but learned a lot about myself.

The point I am trying to share is that having the best of intentions to live with love and peace is good, but doing it all the time is another.  When mistakes are made, we should learn from them and not repeat them.  This is easier said than done.

Today my sister sent me this valuable post written by Lori Spanga a well known specialist for communication with animals.  I read it and thought it would be perfect for people who want to live with love and peace.  Thanks Sherri for sending it and Lori for writing it.

If you are still under the false assumption that life on planet earth is difficult,troubling or challenging, then you are living in an old paradigm and it is time to upgrade your operating system!!!

Here are a few ways you can do that easily and harmoniously:

  • Set your intention to continually grow and evolve and be the best, most authentic, loving, joyful, compassionate, caring self you can be ~ with yourself and all others, including all the kingdoms of plant, mineral, animal and the Earth herself.  Practice every day asking yourself how you can love, appreciate, accept and forgive yourself and others in ways which are most harmonious.
  • Spend as much of your time and energy as possible in nature, preferably barefoot, with sincere intention to fully embrace the escalating electromagnetic fields of light and energy that are bombarding our planet. This new energy will assist you and your body to evolve and adapt to faster, higher vibrating frequencies of energy as well as allow the synapses in your brain to absorb new information which was formerly inaccessible before the emerging, escalating energies were readily accesible.
  • Practice healthy, all natural living and eating (for your pets too!) Remember: what you put into your body, be it food, thought, emotion or energy is what you become.
  • Continuously practice releasing ALL of your old belief patterns and old, warn out emotions, resentments, judgements, and other limiting beliefs.  FREE yourself internally of all lower vibrating energies, thoughts, ideas, emotions, beliefs, etc. Your biography becomes your biology! (Thank you, Carolyn Myss!)
  • Fully and completely embrace that YOU are the CREATOR of YOUR LIFE.  100%.  You are NOT a victim and YOU DO HAVE Real and Significant power to improve, change, and upgrade YOUR Life.   Even if you do not know what the best choices for you might be, recognize that there is a pure loving force and consciousness which YOU can tap into and allow it to lead you, guide and support you and love you!
  • It is time to really discover that you CAN DO ANYTHING you place your intention upon and then fill with unconditional love and gratitude for its unfoldment, even before it has shown up in your physical reality.
  • This kind of energy of love and gratitude opens the Portal into that reality and binds you to that reality.   This kind of multi dimensional thinking is what is most required of you at this time to fulfill your greatest wishes, dreams and potential.
  • Learn to see and experience EVERYTHING as if it is happening for YOUR GREATEST good.  Ask to see and understand the GIFT in everything and EVERY experience.
  • Continually upgrade your energy and activate your dormant DNA and RNA and Upgrade Your Operating System with regular and ongoing energy work.  We do this in monthly manifestation & healing circles.  As you match your energy field with the electromagnetic field of Earth, Earth’s rise in frequency will pull you along in Her wake as you entrain your energies to those of Mother Earth.

As you do these things more and more, you will become more and more entrained to the energy of the Ascending Mother Earth, and life will become more and more easy and graceful as you learn to step out of the way and allow Earth to support and assist you.  This is really ONLY a hard time for those who have not aligned with the new Ascending Earth, or those who are just beginning to learn the new ways of operating.  Life is FULL of new, rich potential!!!

All is good and one-derful as we align with the new energies and frequencies of Ascension.

Do not underestimate the significance of this transitional period, where the pardigms of reality overlap! It is time to Ascend to the NEW, Higher and Faster Vibrating Frequencies of Mother Earth, and Step into LIVING YOUR BEST LIFE EVER!

I have been away from my kids for over 9 months and wanted them to know what is in my heart, so I sent them this letter today.  They are 4 and 9 years old.  I love them so.

Dear Hana and Aya,

I wanted to let you know some things about love and life

Love – For me this means the way I feel about the two of you.  It’s the feeling in my heart and soul that says you are the most important things in my life.  It is you and Aya that give my life meaning, joy, happiness, peace, fun, commitment, respect, understanding, compassion, trust, forgiveness,  and so much more.  It is if you are the beautiful light that lives within a rainbow or, like you are the stars that light up the night sky. When I look at your photographs or simply think about you girls, I feel such pride, and joy that it could fill the ocean.

Like – I like ice cream, Mexican food, daddy nachos, walking in nature, looking at beautiful sunsets, pretty landscapes, cold drinks on a hot day, fresh garden salads, and watching good movies.

There is a difference between like and love. I cannot live without love but I can live without like.  Of course I do not want to live without the things I like, but the truth is I can’t enjoy life without you two girls. The feeling of love for you both is so strong and big that it makes wonderful things like ice cream and Mexican food not as important. I hope this makes sense to you. Your mom feels the same way as she loves you girls so very much.  That is what parents do.  They love their children.

Sometimes however the love parents have for each other changes.  Sometimes they fall out of love.  Other times the love changes and becomes something new.  This is what has happened between your mom and me.  Our love has changed.  Your mother wants to change our relationship to be true to her inner feelings.

I respect your mom and truly want her to make her life all that she desires, even if it means we are no longer man and wife. I will always love your mom and am proud of her.  I believe with all my heart we will be friends, and as such will work together to raise you girls will love. Just because the love your mom and I have changes, does not mean the love each of has for you will change.  It will not.  We will both continue to love you girls will all our hearts.  That I can promise.

This time that I have been away has been hard for you.  It has been hard on your mom and myself. But this period will end and soon I will be home.  I cant wait.  I am so excited to see you girls.  There are so many things I want to do with you guys but most of all I just want to be with you. I am very proud of you.

I have changed a lot since I have been gone.  Just like you have grown so have I. Your minds have developed and you have gotten taller.  I on the other hand have grown on the inside in my heart. I think of what I have been through as a great change and rebirth just like a caterpillar turns into a butterfly.  A caterpillar starts as an insect that crawls.  Then nature tells it that it’s time to go into a cacoon and it changes completely. After a time the butterfly comes out of the shell and flaps its wings and takes flight.  It is more beautiful than it was before.

While I am not an insect, I have gone through great changes inside, and once free of this place I will flap my new wings and come home a new and better daddy.  Some of things that you did not like about me are gone.  I am no longer a person that gets angry easily.  I have learned patience, forgiveness, understanding, and the true meaning of love.   I have thought about you girls, a well as your mom, and my family.  I am at peace and living with love in my heart.  The problems that were once here have gone.

I cant wait to show you the new me.  But you will have to look carefully because unlike the butterfly I did not change how I look on the outside, just how I think and feel on the inside.

All my love daddy

One of the best things I can share is how important it is to love yourself.  When you think about it how can you love others if you don’t love yourself. When you truly love yourself you can forgive yourself and others. It sounds simple, perhaps to simple,  but it is real.

Many people think they are loving but they carry around a lot of pain in their hearts and soul. This pain surfaces and causes disharmony in their relationships with themselves, and spouse and can be the cause of divorce, or not being able to find a partner to love.

In order to love yourself look within and acknowledge all that is good and bad. Relish the good, and forgive the bad. Once you do this you do this your spirit will be lighter and love will be ever-present.

When you love yourself it shows in how you act, react, and interact with people.  If you can mirror the love you have for yourself, nature, and other people it will show. As a result will attract love and enable you to find and maintain meaningful relationships.

Love is the most powerful force in the universe.  Harness it and see how your life improves.  I believe you will find your the quality of life improves.

Sometimes my mind is so busy thinking about things that it is hard to turn off, and go to sleep.  To eliminate this problem I have started thinking about all the things I am grateful for.  It takes the focus off all the things going on and puts me in a place of gratitude. As a result I feel fortunate and blessed. It also has a calming effect and allows me to sleep easily.  Try it for yourself and see if you feel peace and love.

Good night everyone and pleasant dreams.

We can control our mood and state of mind by simply thinking of something that makes you happy.

Try this simple exercise. 

Imagine you are stuck in traffic, and your late getting somewhere. Right when there seems to be a change in the flow of cars, from out of the blue some jerk cuts you off and almost causes an accident.  How do you feel?

Now envision yourself sailing on a beautiful yacht.  The wind is gently blowing through your hair and the sun is about to set.  You have a glass of your favorite beverage and your making a toast to the one you love most in the world.  As you clink your glasses, a humpback whale breaches  and then a pod of dolphins start riding the bow wave jumping into air with glee.    How do you feel now?

Keep this little exercise in mind the next time your less than happy and see if you can change your mood, with the power of positive thoughts.

Wishing you all love and peace.

 

Everyone who is alive has a history. Some of it is wonderful and some of it is not.That part is what I consider to be emotional baggage. The memories linger in our heart hidden from the surface, and only arise to when negativity awakens it.  Once activated our ego takes over and we often react or act in ways that do not serve our higher purpose the good of those around us.  It is not that we intend to let pain rule over our mind, it’s just that we can’t seem to stop it.  Or can we?

These memories take up space in our hearts that would be better filled with love. When my room is filled with clutter, I clean it.  I throw away things I don’t need or donate items to shelters, and organizations that provide clothes and other things to people in need.  The point is I remove the things that no longer serve a purpose.  It is also possible to remove the clutter that exists within our hearts.

The idea is to go through your memories and keep the bits that serve you and remove the bits (pain) that don’t.  Emotional baggage can weigh us down, so why not lighten our load? This creates space for love to come in and with it comes peace. Love is light, and as such is not heavy.

Accept the things that happened and forgive yourself and the people or situation that created the pain in the first place.  Once you start evaluating your life, these memories come to light. What I mean is some of the painful memories that became emotional baggage are buried so deep that they won’t surface without full intention, only then can you begin remembering things long forgotten.

Forgiveness, acceptance, compassion, love, faith, and belief serve your higher self, and  anger, hate, frustration, and resentment do not.  Once you make a  conscious choice to live a life filed with love and peace, you will find freedom.  As a result you and all those in contact with you will benefit.

Those of you that are parents can give your children a great gift, and that is to not to let your past pain rise up and pass to the next generation. Children will experience your anger and frustration if you allow your past pain to live on.  You can keep history from repeating itself and it its place fill their hearts with love and peace.

When you smile you are happy.  It not rocket science just common sense. It’s all to easy these days to get caught up in the rat race and forget to smile.  Smiling makes you happy.  So if you have a lot of stuff going on and your wearing a frown, turn it upside down and just like that you change your mood.

There are people that are frustrated, discourteous, rude, selfish, full of hate, and anger. When these people come into my proximity, I used to pick up on their feelings and soon I felt them too.  I did not like the way I felt and decided to manage my feelings.  I realized I could not be responsible for other peoples behavior but I could manage mine.

So I decided that when someone acted in a way that affected my happiness I would change the way I see them as well as hear them.  I envisioned their heads changing shapes into a watermelon, raisin, and even a rat. I changed their voice to into a cartoon character.  Depending on the person I chose the voice  of the teacher from the old Charlie Brown cartoon, or the voice of  the dog in the Scooby Doo cartoon.  As a result nothing these people say bothers me, and I just smile.  My happiness remains, and that helps me live with love and peace.

So I invite you to try this idea, and think of things that make you smile. It just might help you manage your anger too.

I am so thankful and grateful that so many people are reading and liking my blog entries. I started writing to be of service and to inspire people to live with love and peace.  For me it is a way to as the saying goes, “pay it forward”.  I have written about 50 posts and have received positive feedback from many people.  Writing has become part of my routine and I enjoy thinking of ways to share what I have learned that have had a positive impact on the quality of my life and those that I am in contact with. I have learned that the more you give the more you receive.

May you all live with love and peace.
