mind

a morning of gratitude

3:30am. it's early.

i turn the alarm off. i choose to lay in a state of gratitude. i flood my mind with all that i am grateful for.

my bed that gave me comfort throughout the night. these sheets that kept me warm.

the love vibrating from my wife as she peacefully sleeps beside me.

i move closer to cuddle, feeling her wrap her arms around me. i smile. there is nothing more that i like better than a soft embrace, especially in the early morning hours.

i'm thankful for my hearing as i listen to the birds singing their songs - spring is back

i'm drawn to open my eyes, sight - what a gift. thank you, thank you, thank you.

inspiration builds inside me. i feel these colors are speaking directly to me. the sky transforms into a majestic array of beauty. peach hues, strawberry highlights, lilac clouds contrast this lightness. the evening sky a thing of beauty. always changing. always alive. always new. so fresh. so amazing. thank you.

i continue on closing my eyes again. thank you for my dream home. thank you for my life. thank you for this day.

the more i learn, the more engaged i become. i love the expansion that is happening. i can feel myself healing.

taking it a step further, i challenge my mind to consistently repeat, i approve of myself. i started this exercise a few days ago. at first i was struck by the silliness of this. if felt stupid. it felt wrong. why did i need to tell myself that i approve of myself. of course i do. why do i need to say? my ego treading on thin water attempts to freeze the pond of my mind.

i walk in step to my inner intelligence as i choose to recite these powerful four words over and over in my head.

far too long, i neglected to take care of me. i'm done worrying about what i did or didn't do in my past. i'm doing it now.

an ease flows over me.

i release the need to get up, to go to my 9-5 (technically speaking i've got a 7-4) for the next 2.5 hours.

i relax in the presence that i am.

awake. aware. alive.

i trust the process of life. all is well.

letting the voices come out

i couldn't sleep last night. my head was pounding. and it wouldn't quit! and then all i heard were voices. get up. write. this is your time. we are here with you. ok that's kinda freaky, but i'm totally down! i can feel this shift in my body

let go...let go of the fear within you! let it float away. it no longer serves you. you do not need it. you feel ease. an entire weight has been removed from your body.

this is the first time i am writing about these voices i'm hearing. i can sense the voices waking me up. my body says i'm tired but my heart says keep writing. why would i do this? what is it? something is getting released. my fear.

an engineer by training, i'm not satisfied with that path. i do not feel fulfilled. why waste an entire life living the "shoulds" and "supposed to" rules? who made these rules anyway? i'm sick of following everyone else's rules that only help them! listen to us. we will guide you.

let go of the fear and ego. their battle will never end until you let it

over the years i've become attached to this fear and ego driven banter that i now recognize echoing away in my mind. i'm scared of being wrong. i'm afraid of failure. i am pursuing my dreams. i am a creative! i am soulful! i am abundant!

the truth will set you free.
