trust

what do you live for?

begin each day with yourself. your true self. what do you do? do you follow your heart? are you living from a place of fear and lack or from a place of trust and prosperity? 

make today great. it all begins with you. it starts up here - in your minds eye. can you envision life the way you wish it to be? or are you stuck in fear? are you holding yourself back from your deepest desires? are you creating your own blocks to your true success? do you even know what success looks like?

let go of the doubt. let go of the voice inside your head telling you you are not good enough. let go of the chatter. stop living to get approval from others and start living for yourself. connect with this all creative energy. be lifted. we are here for you. 

you are meant to be great. you are a creative spirit. a creative soul with much to share with the world. when are you going to let it out? when are you going to let the truth free? 

it is time to trust again. it is time to free your mind. release any past "knowing" - it no longer serves you. AND do what you feel is right. 

i'm on my journey and loving it. yes there are days, there are weeks and months and even years when i question who i am, what i am doing and what my life is all about anyway. its normal to have these feelings. its normal to have doubt. its normal to be scared. you don't need to do everything perfect. you don't need to be perfect. you are a success just the way you are.

i get up each morning and connect to my source of creation. this daily activity aligns me. it puts into balance again. 

it doesn't take long, it doesn't require any special equipment. it just takes commitment from you.

what will you do today that will put you in the direction of your dreams. leave me a comment below and share with all of us, what you intend to do today,

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.

Trust the process to make it big

Growing up, I was always considered shy and quiet. And I didn't really like it. It made me feel like something was wrong with me. Was I really shy? Do I need to change who I am and behave differently? Or is it okay for me to simply be me? Was I just being attentive and responsive? I always followed the rules, in fact, I rarely broke them. I was a perfectionist at almost everything I did. I wanted to excel; and the only way I knew how to do that was to follow the rules. And there would be rules for everything. If no rules were known, I'd create some in my head to follow.

And I would force myself to do things. Being extremely driven and motivated, which I love these qualities and will never give up, I'd put pressure on myself all the time. Granted this is a great quality, you may even be wondering what's wrong with this approach. But I've discovered something amazing. And it takes no effort at all. Yet most of us don't believe it works. We claim we need to work hard to succeed. Yet, I find when I go inward, when I meditate, when I find myself and listen to my soul, opportunities soar.

I notice when I focus my intentions and actions upon what I want, believe I have it and let it come to me, possibilities appear out of nowhere. Mind you, if you are coming at it from a place of fear or wanting or worry or anger, you are restricting the energy to you. You are not aligned. It takes time and practice to get into and stay in this state of pure awareness. It's a place when I am in complete relaxation. It's a time when goodness flows to me. And it pours in quickly and easily. It's like traveling down a river, as opposed to paddling recklessly upstream.

And it begins with simply observing my surroundings and going inward. This simple exercise has helped me cultivate a life of extreme success.

When I slow down and listen to life, the answers seem to come to me naturally. It truly is remarkable. I find balance and experience inner harmony. It makes me feel so good inside. I know I am living my purpose. And I'm living it with passion, excitement and love!

When I listen to and follow my breathing, I rediscover myself. It gives me time to reflect on my goals and visions. I enjoy writing about my successes and use my imagination to express my dreams. This openings me up to the intentions of what my purpose is. And when I understand my motives, the answers become clear. And I can reach new heights of awareness.

After meditating, I feel alive. Like my soul has been awakened with a spirit of love and abundance. I feel the creative juices flowing.
