The Illusion called FEAR

So as I have been sitting quiet and still today, asking myself, “what do you really want to do today?”  The simple answer comes….”write”.  I love to write because I get to see the deepest thoughts in my heart and the wisdom of divine consciousness come through, I learn as I write, I find joy as I write and I am passionate about delivering messages of truth that inspire and truly make a difference.  So thanks for being the audience and thank you for your feedback, I love it!

FEAR has been the subject of my latest webinars as well as my personal journey of understanding and moving through.  I have been ravaged by fear as well as been on the other side with complete faith and love.  I have learned its actually embracing fear and expressing deep gratitude for it , that I have found the greatest peace and stepped into great personal power. See, in love, there is no resistance and it is the resistance that fear creates that we struggle and bow down to, because it is in direct opposition with the deepest part of each one of us: divine light and truth.  Fear knows no bounds, fear is rooted in lies, it’s purpose is to move it’s victim to react, thus giving up the space to truly act. Fear is based on the illusion of what we can only see and tries to knock us off base of what we feel, see and know based on faith. So here’s the deal….if you know that fear is based in lies, therein is one tool to overcoming. I’ve learned when fear rears its ugly head, most of the time it attacts my self worth, striving to create self doubt and so in this I have begun to say…”oh thank you, I can see that I am really honoring myself right now, I must be truly on the best path and I must be being so courageous because you are trying to convince me otherwise.”  Thank you for showing me that I am right where I need to be, thank you for showing up to help me be strong.”  I have found when I actually call the fear out, look at it in the face, acknowledge that I heard it and then express gratitude, it puts me back into power, choosing and acting and it diffuses the power it may have had over me!

Fear is an illusion in the sense that fear is only based in the past, in patterns of the past, in the worst and on a perspective, it does not consider light and truth and definitely does not focus on the now and the Present Conscious of Now. It’s in the now, where true power lies, for when we stay in the now, in the present, we realize that we get to choose, we get to choose something different, that we actually have power over ourselves and our destiny. Fear wants to get us to believe that we dont have control, that we have no choice, that we are shameful, bad, wrong and evil. Complete opposite of the truth. FEAR will bring up things from the past and twist it to look hopeless. When we bring FEAR into the Light of Gratitude, Love and Embrace, the battle is won!  And so my friends…..here is the call:  Kick Fear in the Rear by Embracing it and Thanking it.  Stand in the gift you have been given to choose, step into that power boldly and make a commitment to yourself to let FEAR no more dictate your state of being and consciousness.  Make a commitment to yourself to gain as many tools as possible and use them in exposing this illusion in your life so that you can step into greater freedom one step at a time.  Much love to you….God bless.

Gratitude

Lately I have been reminded over and over the power in gratitude. I’ve definitely seen some dark days and challenges seem to be a constant, especially as of late…. being separated from my husband, doing the single mom thing, moving to a new area, balancing between work and kids….nothing that others cannot relate too. Yet over and over, I see that we have the power to shift a seemingly negative situation into a positive, by simply choosing gratitude.
I was profoundly reminded of this just last week, when I found myself sobbing, as I was driving a long way back home, and had to pull to the side of the road so that I could see and regain some composure. I had been wrestling with a big decision that day and felt so much confusion and hopelessness that I just couldn’t take it anymore. As I sat in my car on the side of the road, i began to plead with God through my sobbing. A few minutes later, I was shocked to see a stranger standing outside my car, at my window, knocking. I rolled down my window, and listened as this young gentleman proceeded to tell me that he had passed by 2 previous cars in need that day and had asked the Lord if he should stop, at which the impressions were “no”, but that when he came upon my car, he felt deeply impressed that he should and that he should share an article with me. To my unbelief it was a talk from Elder Uchtdorf entitled “Grateful in Any Circumstances.” This young man proceeded to tell me that the Lord wanted me to know that He is so aware of me and my circumstances and that all would be well. I sobbed again, thanked him, and he returned to his car.
What I have since come to realize is that God was hearing my cries that day, but I really couldn’t see the blessings or hear the answers until I began to acknowledge and show gratitude for the many blessings I had received already. As I have begun to choose gratitude, I have been humbled as my eyes have been open to the reality of my life.  I am blessed with 4 beautiful children, and they have a father who loves them and strives to take good care of them, and strives to keep a friendship with me. I have so many loving friends and with each new friend  the circle just keeps expanding.  The work I  get to do blesses others in profound ways.  I get to work with friends that are like family and I get to work from home! I am blessed with health, which I did not have, even just a year ago.  I feel closer to my God then ever and see His hand in my life daily.  I have food, water, shelter and love.  I am extremely well taken care of… Gratitude is like magic, it completely changes the way we look and feel about our life situations. Gratitude carries with it the energy of hope, healing and peace. It is a powerful tool against lies and deception. It is a tool that empowers us in any circumstance!  Here is my invitation to you, my friends,….. cultivate an attitude of gratitude!  For sure, I’m trying. God Bless us all in our efforts!gratitude

Focus

I’ve heard the phrase many times “what you focus on, you create”.  I had an interesting experience yesterday with my children….they were just plain awful in their behavior. After they had gone to bed, I sat in my bed and cried because I had spent the night yelling and threatening. They went to bed hurt and I went to bed angry. Now, most parents will say, been there, done that….it’s part of parenthood. I agree, but what is disturbing to me is the thoughts that had been playing on my mind that day that I was not consciously aware of, and that I see now, had a huge impact on my behavior as well as my children’s.
I realize I had been focusing on the lack of money, the inability to pay certain bills at the moment, my desire to pay for lessons for my children, but struggling to decide which ones, then feeling guilty for not being able to do more. Then, my thoughts moved into…”you are such a bad mom, your children are so neglected, they’re not going to grow up to amount to much because you haven’t given them all these opportunities….” What!? If what we focus on becomes our reality and every thought has energy that can be felt and passed on….then no wonder last night was so awful.  I was just creating the reality ” I am a bad mom” and “my children are neglected” and my children were just literally tuning in to that negative energy and reacting.

I know to some that this may seem completely off and cuckoo….but for me it makes sense.  The days that I am calm and positive in my mind and heart, my children are also.  We are powerful beings and everything we think and say has energy and effects us and those around us.  So my encouragement is….stay focused on the positive, speak with the power of love and conviction and stay consciously aware of what is playing on the stage of your mind!  When you begin to recognize that you are letting your mind run rampant with negative thoughts,  say STOP.  Begin to say what you are grateful for and let yourself FEEL gratitude for those things.  Gratitude is powerful positive energy and can change things quickly.  Thinking and saying positive affirmations is another way to keep your mind focused on the positive.  I’ve noticed the more I focus on what’s going well, what I am grateful for and take the time to talk positive to myself, the more at peace I am and the more able I am to create calm in my mind and my life, and that feels GREAT!

What do you do to keep your mind focused on the positive?

Making A Difference

Today I am reflecting on my many blessings and my heart is full of gratitude as I reflect back on where I’ve been and where I am now and the miracles that have come about in just a few short months. As some of you may know, I am just coming out of 15 years of severe depression and anxiety.  This has been quite a journey for me and the Lord has blessed me with many different tools to help along the way.  The one tool that has proven to be the most effective and life changing is my Zeal Wellness.  Yes, it is a fabulous whole food, nutritional supplement that has rocked my world and changed it dramatically for the better.  Where there was no energy, over eating, foggy thinking, low tolerance for any kind of challenge, lack of sleep and complete shut down when having to make more than simple decisions…..there is now a happy, balanced, full of energy, skinnier, completely functioning on a higher level woman!  YAY!  So to say I’m excited about this drink and the company and all its possibilities to help people…..is a complete understatement!

Now, I’m just a lady on a mission and I am standing on this platform and asking for your help.  I have a goal to help 100 people before Christmas! I want to introduce, educate and provide friends, family and strangers an opportunity to get Zeal into their bodies.  As you are reading this, I know there is someone that you each know, if not just yourself, that is in great need of a way to better health and wellness….send them my way.  You may know someone who has lost hope for a brighter future, who financially is struggling and has been for some time, and just needs and wants to be financially free…..send them my way.  You may be someone who as felt that there is a greater purpose for you, you have a burning desire to help people and to see others lives change…..contact me!  If you just want and need to be a part of an amazing group of people that care about you, believe in you and want to see you achieve your greatest aspirations…..call me!  I can not find the words to express my deep sense of gratitude for a loving Father in Heaven who has brought these blessings into my life and provided me with an opportunity to do the same for others.  I  feel so blessed and want to share with others.  Please help me in making a difference!
