I Woke Up With a Bursting Heart!

heart bursting

This morning I was inspired in my sleep to wake up, get up, and to write this blog post. I was so excited I was BURSTING!!! I am one of those people whose mind and heart never stops working. When I get excited about something I feel it bursting out through my heart center and when I feel this sensation I know I must share it.

I truly believe that life is about serving others and making a difference and that is why my dream inspired me to share why I personally love what some people call being in ‘Sales’. I like to call it SALES…. or Sharing Awesome LOVE Everyday with Someone! Call it what you will, it’s the best thing you could ever do or be in as far as I am concerned.

As my acronym states, everyday I get to share awesome love with someone somewhere. I get to offer benefit and improvement to someone’s life and that benefit or improvement may continue to work in that person’s life everyday moving forward.

Whether I am selling a nutritional product, a coaching package, or my recent offering of a hair mineral analysis which tests the hair for heavy metals and mineral imbalances in the body, I am helping to change people’s lives! What’s not to love? How LUCKY am I?

It truly perplexes me why anyone would see the sales with a negative connotation. I fully embrace and am honored that I can perform this role for my fellow teammates here on planet earth. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am pumped, over-joyed and thrilled about it!!!

If I can help to make a difference in someone’s life to feel better, be healthier, understand themselves more, have more Joy, worry less, improve their health, look better, feel better…… etc. etc. etc., of course I would help them. Why wouldn’t I? In fact, I am excited to help people. I want to do more and more and more of that! I get so excited about it, it wakes me up and brings me to the keyboard. ๐Ÿ™‚

I believe if we are alive and breathing here on earth we are in sales. It is our job to serve each other and to make a difference in the lives of others. Do it with Love, do it with Kindness and if you are in the field deemed ‘Sales’ do it with honesty and excitement, and with the intent to make a difference, and you WILL make a difference. Serving others is a gift that we are all born with and it is the gift of life. When we both share this gift and receive this gift we get to experience the magic of it.

Children are the best ‘sales people’ on earth. They are naturals. They get excited about things and they share it. Whether they just found the coolest rock or they want the candy they see on that low lying shelf at the grocery store, they are going to let you know loud and clear. They will show and tell you why they should have it or why that rock is the most exciting rock on planet earth. ๐Ÿ™‚ They naturally share their exuberance and delight.

If you are someone who is reading this and has an offering for the world that you share on a regular basis, I encourage you to get excited about it. Do it with LOVE and with an intent to make a difference and most of all own what you do and be proud of it. It is an HONOR to be able to make a difference in the live’s of others.

My Reflections on Life Coaching

I woke up today at 4 in the morning and had to write down these notes on coaching that came flooding through my soul and flowed onto the paper. I knew then that this was something I needed to share so here we go!

You know when you really get something at a deeper level? It’s like you are really getting it and embracing it like you have never done before? Well that is what is happening to me. I have been a Certified Life Coach for 11 years but recently I have truly been appreciating and embracing all of the gifts that coaching allows me to experience and most importantly to pass along to others.

jumping for joy

life purpose certificate

I cannot express how much joy comes from my chosen line of work! What are some of the things I get to do that fire me up?

Well I get to remind people of their dreams and help them remember what is important to them and for them. It’s so easy to get lost in the functionality of life that we forget or bury our soul’s calling and desires. I get to help people take back their soul’s callings and see clearly what it is that is important to them. WOW!!! How awesome is that?

I get to be the light if darkness is what they see. I can shine my light and bridge the way to more light and laughter and Love in their lives. I get to offer HOPE and shine the way for the path to brighter days. I get to help them cross the bridge to transformation and enlightenment. ๐Ÿ™‚

I get to help them remember their greatness and to never play small.

I get to help people be accountable so that they make sure to live their lives with passion and purpose so that they don’t forget ‘who they are’ or why they came here.ย  I help them to be the beautiful and authentic self that they came here to be. I help them strip away their fears and cast aside their doubts. I help them to become personally empowered and to live with zest and gusto, if that’s what they choose!

I get to help them stay healthy in body, mind and spirit, so that they can execute their earthly mission and be who they were meant to be!

I get to help them add in ‘more’. More of whatever it is they want. More Love, more laughter, more joy, more health, more exercise, more walks, more art, more abundance, more fun times, more success…. just more, more, more of whatever it is that will make their life the one that makes them leave this earth with no regrets!

 

Best of all, I get to be their personal cheer leader. I get to applaud them and celebrate their successes both big and small. In fact there are no small successes. To me as a coach, they are all GREAT successes and we celebrate and rejoice in all of them!

How lucky am I? ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ There is nothing I would rather do! ๐Ÿ™‚

Leaks in Your Self-Talk

clear intentions

Watch for leaks in your self-talk. Take a listen and see if you hear yourself using words like “I think”, “Just”, “I’ll try” “Maybe”, or “I’m sorry” way too often. Although all words have places in our vocabulary and in our daily conversations, sometimes people develop a habit of over using self sabotaging words or statements.

This is especially important to be careful of when dealing with universal laws. When we are wish washy or we are not being clear or direct with our messages, we get results that are wishy-washy and unclear.

For example, if you start most sentences with “I think” as in “I think I am happy”, or “I think I like my job”, or “I think I might like to go on a vacation”, you are being very uncertain and that is what you put out there! One of the keys to manifesting and creating is to be clear and concise. Even if you are unsure of how something might happen, you need to be clear with your intent!

How about this instead? “I love my job!” verses “I think I like my job”. You may not entirely believe this but by declaring it, you will start to love it and be happier and have less stress and more satisfaction etc. This works for anything. What you say and declare you bring about. It’s that simple. Words are more powerful than people realize.

Recently I attended a writing workshop about the power of ‘one’ word. It WAS powerful to see this. One word can make a huge difference. Think of this an ’empty’ room or a ‘spacious’ room? Let that sink in. Huge difference. Now imagine statements and strings of words put together. They can have huge impact.

So in conclusion, I encourage you to choose your words wisely and choose words that are empowering to your self esteem and to your mission or goal. Own your words. My favorite new saying lately is “Not only have I found my voice, but I am owning it”. ๐Ÿ™‚ I think this is very applicable in this scenario of creating, manifesting and bringing more clarity into our lives.

Two Easy Life Hacks!!!!!

bella love is in my home

When the opportunity arose the other day, I snapped this picture , which I consider adorable, to say the least. I was thinking I should use this in a blog post and then got to thinking…ย  every time I look at it my heart swells with gratitude so I will write about gratitude and share some easy hacks I have foundย to add more gratitude into our lives.

Hack #1

Pets! Pets are the easiest, fastest and #1 way to shift one into a frequency of gratitude. When they greet you with unbridled exuberance and are jumping for joy to see you, it’s pretty hard not to feel grateful for their presence. Wouldn’t you agree? ๐Ÿ™‚

My little Bella, who is in this picture, patiently waits for me every morning to do yoga together. Seriously!ย  My yoga usually starts with a short conscious relaxation segment and Bella lies on top of me. When I get to the part that says “touch one hand to your solar plexus and one hand to your heart”, I usually change it to “Touch one hand to your cat and one hand to your heart”. It works for me ha ha. ๐Ÿ™‚ Bella likes it too!

Pets are full of unconditional love and they display it often and well. Gratitude and Love are two matching frequencies and they are really one in the same so the more we can tap into the frequency of gratitude, the more love we let into our lives and the world. And let’s face it, that’s probably a darn good idea isn’t it?

Hack #2

Place things into your space that trigger feelings of well-being and gratitude. The pillow in the top picture says it all. “Love is in my home’. It reminds me every time I see it to remember what is really important to me. It also makes me think of the good friend who gave me this pillow for my 50th birthday. Thinking of her always puts a big smile on my face.

I also use pictures and artwork that make me happy and remind me of the beauty in life, like this one.

When I look at this throughout my day, I am reminded that life is good, that there is beauty when I look for it. Even looking at this picture of my picture brings me Joy! Especially when I see the sun dancing in it… extra Joy Pop!

Here is another example of how I incorporate messages and reminders for gratitude and beauty and joy into life. I have several cups that I like to use with beautiful sayings on them.ย 25009309_367512150377862_4686375542654500864_n

So not only is this cup reminding me to have a great day, but the green smoothie inside will bring joy and gratitude to every cell of my body, especially after it is charged with these empowering words.ย  How awesome is that?

It is important to remember, that EVERYTHING is energy and has a frequency to it.ย  Be sure to put into your environment, things that make you feel good and remind you of all that you have to be grateful for. There is always something to see if you will look. ๐Ÿ™‚

Own Your Magic Button!

pushoncered

When it comes to people affecting our moods, we have more control than we think. In fact, we’ve got the magic. We truly do. It’s all about learning how to harness the power also known as our personal power.

Here is a quote I like from Esther Hicks.

“When it feels to you as if someone is pushing your button, realize that you are the one with a great big button out there that is just begging to be pushed. If you don’t put it out there, no one will push it.”

Let that one sink in! Imagine you are walking around with this big button on your heart that is saying “Push me, push me, and I will react”. It is VERY empowering to know and own the fact that NO-ONE can push our buttons or offend us or anything else, unless we choose to be offended, hurt, etc. We have personal power and responsibility when it comes to these situations.

Sure it’s not easy at times and no-one deserves to be downright abused, but in life and in my coaching practice, I have seen a lot of people suffer needlessly because they have chosen to wear that button and wear it proudly :-). I personally choose to suffer the least amount possible in my life, so I actively keep that big ol push button tucked away and try not to display or use it. There is a saying I have liked for all of my adult life “What other people think of me, is none of my business”. This has helped me to better react in the challenging situations.

I really believe that the first step to change is to actively acknowledge and become consciously aware of how we react and respond to things and outside stimulus provided to us in the game of life. The better we master our reactions, the less we suffer. Sounds good to me. What about you? ๐Ÿ™‚

Miraculous Meditation!!!

Woman in water during pray or meditation

We all mediate whether we realize it or not. Every time we think of something, focus on something, or dwell on something, we are meditating!

Mediation comes from the Latin root โ€œmedโ€ which means โ€œto measureโ€. This is the same root that forms the word medicine! So, when we mediate we are actually performing a miraculous act. The question becomes what is the best form of meditation that ultimately serves us in the highest way?

Put simply we become what we think about. Meditation of any sort has the ability to transform and to heal as does medicine. Whether we are walking and thinking, reflecting while washing our dishes in the sink, or sitting cross legged with palms up and chanting, we are meditating! ๐Ÿ™‚

No matter which form I take, I am very proactive at using my thoughts for my highest good. In fact, I have coined a phrase โ€œI control my thoughts, they donโ€™t control me!โ€ This has served me well and I am very conscious and aware of the thoughts that I am thinking at all times.

We are powerful, powerful creators and we really do have the power. ๐Ÿ˜Š Let us use it wisely.

A Friend in Need

โ€œA friend is someone who is there for you when heโ€™d rather be anywhere elseโ€. Len Wein

This quote made me reflect on how wonderful it is in life to have support and how having a friend when you need one is so comforting. Then I got to thinking what about us? Are we there for ourselves when we need us to be? Do we treat ourselves like a best friend would or could? Or are we wanting to be anywhere else then loving, helping, and supporting ourselves?

Often times we understand the importance of caring for others but when it comes to ourselves it is not as easy.

What if we looked at ourselves as our own best friends? What if we encouraged ourselves and supported ourselves by seeing ourselves as our own best friend?

To my best friend, Me, I love you, I support you, I encourage you and you need to know that I will be here for you always. ๐Ÿ˜Š I may not always make the best choices but I will always hold you in the Love and Light that I know you are.

To all the best friends out there may you be the best you can be to your ME!

Big Leaps

Sometimes in life we have to take big leaps or make big decisions. Maybe itโ€™s a decision regarding taking charge of our health, or ending a relationship, or moving from a place weโ€™ve been at for a long time.

Change is never easy but neither is suffering. Sometimes it helps to understand that the pain of staying where we are, might be greater than where we leap to.
I find things work much easier if I reflect on where I am going to, rather thank looking back at what is or where I am.

Focus on the good feelings that you will experience when you get to that next place. Perhaps itโ€™s freedom, or better health, or ease of movement, or not being treated poorly by yourself or others. When we can get excited about the changes, we make it so much easier to transition.

No matter what, remember that life is a series of ups and downs and no one escapes this, so always be kind to yourself and when you need to, embrace the big leaps and trust in the process.

Be Like Bamboo!

Business person with bamboo

โ€œAs for the future: Iโ€™ll go on believing there is one โ€“ maybe even a happy oneโ€ฆ Whatever it may be, one thing is for sure โ€“ the adventure is not overโ€.  Lauran Bascall

How we choose to see life now makes a huge difference in how we feel about ourselves and our lives. Do you tend to long for the past or the way things were? Or are you the kind of person who is creating your future in your mind?  Or have you mastered living in the present?

Whatever place we are at, it is always easier if we see the future through the eyes of Hope. Knowing that life is a roller coaster of ups and downs makes it interesting to say the least. We all go through struggles, disappointments, grief, etc., but itโ€™s how we adapt that makes the difference.

I heard a Japanese proverb or such that says that โ€œwomen are strong like bambooโ€. This means that they are adaptable and bending as they go through life and all of lifeโ€™s challenges. The more we can be adaptable and bendable the stronger we are. Just thinking of this theory, brings me comfort.

Being like bamboo means we also adapt to where we are now and how we see the future. Knowing we have been like bamboo in the past, means we can be strong in the future too. Let us trust in the adventure and remain like bamboo.
