The Beginning – 21 Steps to Greatness

Have you ever wanted to write a book and you know you need to share your thoughts and story? Well, that’s been me for the past 7 months. Today, I am sharing with you a few tidbits from my new e-book coming out soon….21 Steps to Greatness. This came as inspiration as I was praying. Now we know that books are the fruits of the labor of experiences in our lives and this has been a fun one to write. I pray it will uplift, enlighten and edify those who feel compelled to pick it up! Here are 2 steps for today….

Step 1 – Make a decision – The energy and power of greatness cannot be experienced or manifested unless we make a decision within ourselves to be great, no matter what the cost. When we have decided whole heartedly within ourselves to live a full life, to be excellent and to surround ourselves with greatness then a shift happens, the universe and God, go out of their way to support, sustain and help us accomplish our goal of actually experiencing our powerful selves….creating a life of experience of Self Actualization. This means we actually get to experience ourselves as love, as strength, as kindness, as driven, as determined and we are putting these into action, instead of being acted upon.

Step 2 – Gratitude- Gratitude is one of the strongest energies, that keeps us grounded, open, centered and happy. Choosing to be grateful and cultivating the spirit of gratitude in any and all circumstances puts us in a place to connect with the Divine. It empowers us to switch our brains and focus to all that is good, instead of all that is not so good. The more gratitude we cultivate in our lives, the more joy and peace we create within ourselves

Go out and be GREAT today! I am!

Going with the Flow

I’m sure we have all heard it and said it before…”Just go with the flow.” This is actually an energetic term from which I would like to expand on.  In a world where we are encountering constant streams of energy, the question becomes….”Which energy do we connect and go with and how do we flow?”

Energy is all around us, everything is energy/matter, the stuff we can feel constantly, but can’t see. Everyone has their own energy, every thought, word and emotion is energy and creates a vibration, just like radio waves. So when we say….go with the flow, what we are really saying is….go with what flows from you naturally, go with the light energy that is guiding you that day, go with what naturally presents itself and brings peace. So much in this world we are acting from a place in our brains that continually plays negative thoughts, or we act from a belief of what we “should do” or trying to create something we were told is the “right way”. This my friends, is death to the spirit in all forms. True authenticity, peace and happiness comes when we connect to the true flow or spirit within us and then let that guide us in our daily lives. True creation of life and peace comes when we begin to act from this place inside and begin to create our thoughts from this place of light, joy, love and goodness and in this begin to partner with God in creating our lives instead of following a programmed response and tape from our heads.

Moving into a space of  living consciously or living in flow is what brings peace and joy. What does it mean to be conscious?  It means to be fully aware, to be make choices consciously, from our heart space where free energy lives. It means to choose our life and letting our soul, along with God be our guide. Be aware at the choices we are making, choosing our lives in the moment, instead of reacting. When we choose to live in flow, we are choosing to let light and truth guide our lives. We are choosing to come from a place of real freedom. When we are living from our heart center, we are free.

So, the next question is….how does one connect the heart and the head so they work together and one is living consciously and in flow? First, you need to give yourself permission to put off all the “have to’s” and “musts” in your life and start giving yourself permission to do the want to’s  and to turn some of the have to’s into wants. In this you move yourself into a space of needing to listen to your heart and striving to connect with it. Meditation is a good first step into starting to connect with your heart.  Each morning put time aside to just be still and connect with your heart space and meditate. When you pray from this space you will feel your connection with the Divine and be working with the same heart and mind, this is how you begin to start conscious living.  By staying connected to your heart space, you stay connected with the Divine.  As you make it a priority throughout the day to keep this connection, you will begin to live more in flow and freedom. Really the saying “practice makes perfect” can be applied here.  The more we practice connecting each day and put our energy in this, the easier it becomes!  I pray for your success in connecting and learning to live in flow. God Bless!
