Real Gratitude

So many people are stating gratitude because, after all, it is "the season." I think that is great, awesome, and I really enjoy reading and hearing all the positive things that are happening. Wouldn't it be great if this was everyone's priority even when it's not "the season" to do so? Real gratitude is an attitude. It is waking up each day realizing you have a whole fresh day ahead of you and being thankful just for that. It doesn't have to be about things or how much money you have (or don't have). When there is an attitude of gratitude, the whole world looks different. Each day after I get up, I look out the window. As I stand there, my thoughts are not about going to work or plan

Real Armor

When I feel weak and vulnerable, there is a part of me that wants to curl up in a ball much like my cat does and just lay there until the feeling passes. It does not happen much these days but occasionally I find myself questioning choices and having momentary lapses of memory of who, what and why I am. I use several methods of armor in my daily life from the moment I awaken each day. The first of these is gratitude. Yes, gratitude is an armor. It protects us from attacks of negativity and lifts our spirit up. As soon as I open my eyes each day, I give gratitude for still being alive to experience another day and for the opportunity to share my light. The more gratitude I show during

Real Dragons

Man has always been fascinated by dragons. Whether they ever existed or were imagined, they are depicted as fierce, unrelenting and consuming anything that gets in their way. It is easy some days to feel that there are dragons everywhere. As energy workers, we are constantly aware of the need to protect ourselves from the negative energies of those we are trying to help, the ones who were drawn to our light in a world of darkness. In my book, TIME Heals, there is a lot of good information given in regards to protecting yourself from others whose energy may try to attach itself to you. There are some very simple things you can do such as holding a crystal which will absorb the negative e

Real Persistence

Persistence is the quality that allows someone to continue doing something or trying to do something even though it is difficult or opposed by other people. What are you persistent about in your life? We all have difficulties but it is in how we deal with those difficulties that determines whether we keep on keeping on or just throw our hands up in frustration or defeat. When we quit, that is a conscious decision to not persist whether it is because we get tired, worn down, or just convince ourselves that it is too hard to continue. When we commit to something, we have every intention to see it through but then things happen, life happens and situations happen. I am not the same person

Real Vision

"If you think you're too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito in the room." This morning as I did my Chi exercise and meditation, for just a moment I was shown a vision of me standing where I was in my small room and then the vision zoomed out to show our beautiful planet Earth and then on out into the galaxy and there I was like a pinpoint compared to all of that. I was unsure at the time what the message was until I sat down to write and asked the angels and guides to speak through me. The quote they showed me hit me like electricity. Okay, I get it now. It's all in perspective. Yes, here I am -- a little speck in the grand scheme of things and that is how I can l

Real Transformation

I am an avid reader and the more books I am currently delving into the happier I am. I have learned that the ability to download almost any book I want with Amazon's "Kindle Unlimited" is maybe not a good thing for me. I think I have enough books now to last me through the next decade. As I was looking for a specific book tonight, I came across one that I was not familiar with but the title jumped out at me and, trust me, this happens a lot! The book is called "Nothing Changes Until You Do." Wow -- now that kind of sums up life, doesn't it although many people have the expectation that others should change for them. Nope, sorry but it does not work that way. I'm not saying there shoul

Real Caring

Today, this moment, I vow to do everything I can to make a difference in someone's life. Do you know how powerful that would be if we could get a wave going like that? What if each person started out their day with the prayer and intent "Today, it is my desire to make a difference even if it is only to one person"? The possibilities are endless as far as blessings given and received. If this were our first thought when waking up each morning, miracles would begin to happen because when the intention is put out there, the universe responds to make it happen. The focus right now is on negative events and, yes, there are some horrific things going on. Can we as individuals do anything othe

Real Joy

Joy -- it's not something you can place your finger on or hold in your hand but you do know that you have it when it is there. You can even measure how much of it you have. Joy does not always present itself as happiness, which is different altogether. Joy is more of a state of being whereas happiness is a feeling. Does happiness affect your joy? You betcha! Can you be joyful without feeling the happiness? You betcha! A lot of people think of their life in terms of the ups and downs, the contrast that is constantly happening. First you are on top of the mountain and then a strong wind comes along and BAM, you are taken tumbling down to the bottom. This yoyo can go on your whole life

Real Problems, Real Solutions

When you go through your list of things you are grateful for, does it include cloudy days? Many of us are thankful for the sunshiny, happy days of our life but we look at cloudy or even rainy days in a different way. Why? Behind the clouds, the sun is still shining. The clouds do not make it disappear, just kind of put it on hold for a bit for a particular time. Sometimes we may exist in a bright sunshiny day but things going on inside of us create clouds where we cannot see the brightness of the sun. This seems to happen around this time of the year for many folks. Dreading the holidays coming because of being alone or not having the money to celebrate or perhaps the memories from pa

Real Release

When we set something or someone free, we can then say “Thanks for the memories” and move forward. Release, sweet release, is the most freeing thing you can do for yourself. When there is a situation, relationship, job, or you fill in the blank in your life that no longer serves your higher and best purpose this lifetime, let it go. Take an inventory of what is important in your life. What do you have in the number one spot? It should be YOU! If you are not taking care of yourself and nurturing yourself, how are you going to benefit anyone else? Then, as you go down that list of important things/people/situations, take note of what you feel when you think of them. Is it a good feelin

Real Change

We mark our age by a certain period of time; i.e., our birthday which signifies the date on which we were born. Some people celebrate this day – many get well wishes and presents. When this day rolls around each year, we acknowledge the meaning and importance of it and our brain understands that it signifies that we are now a “year older.” BUT when that actual day comes, is there something that happens whether it be a feeling or emotion to prove that we have aged? Do we just start thinking like perhaps what a 40-year-old would think or 50 or 60? Most of us can prove our age by a piece of paper called a birth certificate and we are required throughout our lives to give our birth date on

Real Magic

"You can do magic -- you can have anything that you desire." This new moon in Scorpio is magical as Scorpio is the sign of magic. What do you want to magically appear in your life? What has been out of your reach and now with this new energy rolling in you feel you can hang your hat on the moon and grab any star you want and put it in your pocket? I have always heard, if you are going to dream, dream big so why not? Why not have that Mercedes or yacht if that is what you desire? Bringing it down to a more interpersonal level, what is it you want for you? Do you want to speak up more for yourself or apply for that job you never thought you had a chance at before? Do it! Move out of yo

Real Manifestations

My life has this wicked sense of humor at times. I am sitting at my computer laughing out loud and my two cats are, of course, looking at me like I have totally lost my mind because there's no one else around and nothing is making noise in the apartment except me. One of my mentors says "laughter raises the vibration" and this is so very true. I have started and re-started a book called "E-Squared" about three times now. Every time, I make it a little further with the experiments. I was going into it with a better state of mind this time and everything was falling into place. As soon as I put my intention out, whatever I needed to see or hear just appeared like magic. Thus, I flew thro

Real Feelings

"When darkness comes and pain is all around" -- probably everybody has heard this line from the popular song by Simon and Garfunkel. There is so much darkness and pain in our world. If we choose to dwell on the darkness, it can be quite overwhelming, especially if you are an empath like myself. The darkness seems to suck us in. If you have ever fainted, you know the sensation of everything fading out until there is nothing left of the light. That is how it is when you get sucked into the vortex of darkness. There is a helplessness and a hopelessness there. I have been at that very place many times during this lifetime. That is why I can relate to the lyrics of songs such as "Hello da

Real Love

Real love is when your friends surround you and pull you up out of the lower vibrational energies, wipe the tears from your face and allow you to vent for hours. It just doesn't get any more real than that. A friend will tell you to get it out, whatever "it" is, whether it is sadness, rage, anger, helplessness, hopelessness, despair. When you are in the midst of these swirling emotions, you cannot see beyond the darkness. You cannot see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel or if you do see one, you are envisioning that it's the headlight of a train. Sometimes life hands us serious blows. I know because I've been there done that and then did it again and bought the shirt to pr

Real Talk, Real Walk

When is enough enough? Maybe you’ve felt this way at times. Your whole being is screaming at you for replenishment. You go and go and give and give and then boom, your body and soul rebel and say, wait what about me? Sometimes I can go for a couple of days without sleep. I suffer from terrible insomnia and have for years. Sometimes though, my brain decides to just put the brakes on. I feel it coming – it’s like a light switch dimming the lights and sure enough, whatever I’m doing has to be put on hold so the body can refresh. Our spirit is that way too. We push and give and put ourselves out there for others. The blessings keep coming because the more we give to others, the more we

Real Friendship

Osho says, "Never ask, “Who is my real friend?” Ask, “Am I a real friend to somebody?” That is the right question." Oh boy. This month the focus is on keeping it real. So, what exactly is a real friend? In looking at people in my life, I have ones that I consider friends because we interact, socialize, talk. I have "friends" on social media, some of which I interact with every day and although we've never physically met, we have developed a friendship. I also have friends I used to interact with but because of distance, I no longer see them. I talk to some of these friends occasionally, especially if they are on social media. Then, I have friends that I haven't seen in many years and

Real Forgiveness

Yesterday I had the wonderful experience of listening first-hand to a new, not-yet-published ebook by one of my wonderful mentors, Lisa Nichols. The part I came in on while she was recording the book was on relationships. Wow! I cannot recommend this book high enough from just that one chapter! In thinking about relationships – and this is ALL relationships, not just romantic – I have had to do a lot of forgiveness and releasing in my lifetime. Forgiveness is something you do for yourself, not for the one being forgiven. Once you can grasp that, then you are on your way to a more peaceful, happy life. Our next book will be TIME Forgives and this is exactly what we will deal with. How

Be The Real You

In yesterday’s blog message, I shared a definition of keeping it real. When we do this, everything falls into place. However, if we can’t be real with ourselves, we can’t be real with others. So, what does that mean exactly? There are those in our lives who constantly hide from themselves. Maybe you know someone like this. Maybe you have even done this to some extent. You know the scenario. You want to make yourself look better in the eyes of others so maybe you put on a smile that doesn’t reflect how you are feeling inside because you don’t think you can let others see your real emotions. Maybe you are jealous of what others have and so you are constantly trying to “keep up with th

Throat Chakra Tune-up Time

I’m adopting a theme for November: Keep it real. The urban dictionary defines this as “Staying true to yourself, your faith, your life and constantly seeking the truth.” I’ll buy that! For the next month I want to focus on the throat chakra and the third eye chakras. Both are extremely powerful. When our throat chakra is blocked we are faced with not being able to speak our truth. Many times we don’t speak up for ourselves or others. This chakra also needs to be open for energy to flow freely from both the upper (crown and third eye chakras) to the lower chakras and vice versa. If blocked, a bottleneck can occur and a feeling of being stuck, much like food gets stuck in the throat.
