Is it possible to be in such alignment with the universe that life just flows? Is it possible to just let all be and let all go and exist in the now? YES! I am appreciative of the contrast in my life as it pushes me towards what I desire, how I want to be, and with whom and what makes my smile even bigger. Today is every day and Today I feel appreciation for the people that have and still are and will be part of my journey in life. This means everyone that I have, are and will mingle with in some capacity. Thank you for creating such a unique experience for me. The sun has been shining almost every day and I feel it’s warmth shining on my soul. I feel warm fuzzies in each moment. My eyes have shifted lenses and these are ALMOST as good as my BluBlockers!
Sometimes life unravels but somehow it then gets knitted up into fun “wearables”. Perhaps the cat plays with them and they get a little tangled and balled up but it doesn’t mean you throw away that hand made scarf or hat or slipper or blanket just cuz the cat got at it. You play with the cat, put lotion on your feet and put the slippers on cuz they feel good, bundle up when you go outside with your hat and scarf, and hang out on the couch and do nothing under your warm cozy blanket. They are all still functional and they are all probably the coziest and happiest items you own. They have character and purpose and have been created just for you!
It’s crazy how in a split moment we can change focus and change emotion and change perspective and change life in every moment. Did I lose you? Check out the next time you have a not so good feeling and see if you can immediately change focus and turn your thoughts on to something that feels good and give that momentum rather than what was originally coming down the pipeline. Try sending out love vibes instead of negative vibes and see how that resonates in the space you are currently in at the moment. Stop yourself in the middle of any negative contrast and put your thoughts on something that is good in your life and let that be your flow of the moment. You will eventually train your brain to get “to the new place” rather than let the old creepers back in to your moment. You have complete control over where you allow your body and mind to go and sometimes we forget that we are in charge of ourselves.
My new daily outlook to keep moving forward might read something like this… I am living my happiest moments and everything is ok. I accept contrast because I know it is needed to receive some of my desires. I appreciate the oneness that exists and am so thankful I am part of today. I bask in all the minute to minute moments. I am a creative soul, in progress, in this body, and am guiding my self to happy feelings. The universe returns my vibrations with happy people, happy times, happy moments, and happy experiences. I love being loved. I love feeling good about myself. I love being outside and being adventurous. I love learning and experiencing new things. I love music and dance and theater and arts and photos and paintings and everything creative! I love to see creative people and their creative life. I love to people watch and observe the now. I love the feeling of taking care of myself mentally and emotionally and spiritually and physically. I love being with my family and friends. I love meeting new people. I LOVE being around people and places that are opposite of me. I LOVE feeling the hustle and bustle of the city. I LOVE feeling the peace and serenity of the west coast beach life. I LOVE waking up to meditation and brushing the cat and lemon water and the lavender diffuser. I LOVE falling asleep after a hot shower, tea, and meditation music. I LOVE catching up with old friends with whom we never seem to have parted. I LOVE being an entertainer on stage. I LOVE sharing. I love giving. I love receiving. I love the touch of another persons skin. I love to see smiles and laughter. I love when I can laugh at myself. I love color. I love today and today is what counts.
You can shine bright every day. You can be positivity for yourself and other people every day. You can just be you and that shines bright enough to help somebody get by. You never know what is going on with everyone around you. Someone might just be at their tipping point, out of light, then BAM, maybe your light hits them in the most poignant of times. Maybe you just practice being light so the next time you run out of light you are THERE for yourself. Indisputably there for yourself in a time of need that ends up being love and compassion and hope and trust and belief. Instead of doom and gloom we are able to pick up the pieces and use these bright lights to keep going. Instead of being alone we are now surrounded by love. Remember light shines every day. We don't have to remind light to shine. It just does every day. The natural part of us, source, is always connected to this light. YES sometimes the body and mind that we are in needs an extra light to shine so it can get back into alignment with the big light that shines every day.
Sometimes we don’t see or feel the light. No-one can push you into the light and force you to see or feel or enjoy the light. It just is and you have to be ready or go through contrast to understand what light is… yes, it is what it is, and you actually DO have the power to allow the light in and receive the goodness that it brings or you can choose to sit in the shade. I would say do what you want and act like I don’t care but in reality I want you to sit in the sunshine. Why not feel good for everyones sake? When you are not in the sunshine life does not feel good. If you don't feel good, THAT is what you are essentially giving to everyone else. This whole light thing is real. So if you are being anything but love and light, stop, please stop. For the sake of everyone, be love and be the light you are meant to be. Get out of the unhealthy ways and get your stuff together and be the light. Be the light in every situation and circumstance. Not the martyr, but the light. You are not a helper but you are a giver and a receiver. You don't have to go through struggle and pain and tough times to be where you want and with whom you want. You just need to take care of YOU first, then be the light. The light is what you were meant to be. Being the light is the only way to give to others.
Perhaps you are the light but it feels dimmed... perhaps the light is not shining as bright as you hoped... perhaps you start to feel not good about being the light... it's ok.. get quiet and keep going. Meditate if you have to. You CAN be the light from far away. It's always best to be the light because anything else feels not so good. Your true test of alignment is shining the light at every moment even in the times of distrust and hurt. Perhaps you are in a situation or around people or a person that feels not so good. Perhaps this means you still have expansion in the horizon and so do they... contrast is our friend and it always means something is better on the horizon.
I know it might seem hard, but continue to be the light. You can be the light no matter what. It's your choice.
1.) The best feeling and gift I think would be the gift of Freedom. Free to be yourself and Free to live life the way you enjoy best. It is so interesting that we declare freedom yet many of us stay locked up. Locked up in our own minds. Locked up in our own rules and regulations and also abiding by other people's rules and regulations. We live conditionally and by who's standards? who's opinions? and who's perceptions? Who has declared us the judge of ourselves and others? We have. We seek truth YET live our own reality bound up in what some could say our own shackles? We created THIS no one "did this to us". THIS is wonderful. If you are thinking no everything is not all rosy Tami then my answer would be... remember life has contrast to push us towards what we really desire. I see and believe there are so many beautiful things about life, and people, and society, and humanity. This is a great time to be alive and see all that exists so let's enjoy it while we can. When will you ever get the opportunity again to smell flowers, see magnificent artistry, hear fabulous sounds, taste yummy food, touch another persons skin, and feel the sensation of love and passion and desire? I just want to be a sponge and sop up everything around me. I feel like a maniac of life experiences and adventure.
2.) Yes there is propaganda on TV, in Magazines, in Books, in Videos, in Music, etc, BUT we choose to believe what we want and live the way we want. We have already been given the gift of Freedom and some choose not to accept this gift. Life can be fulfilling and prosperous and full of love. It's all how YOU view life. Sure, contrast remains in life BUT that is what we need to push ourselves in the directions we want to go. If there was no contrast then there would be no growth or expansion. Everything is ok and is always working out for us. So it's your choice.. see the good or see the bad.... talk negatively or talk positively... be a re-actor or be a creator... be a follower or be a leader. Point is , there are choices and if you choose the not so good feeling options all the time you will create momentum and life will ALWAYS not feel good. And just as this can be reality, we can also choose the good feeling options all the time and create this momentum so life will will always feel good. So brainwash yourself into happiness. See the good and be the good and see how life changes. Listen to the Internal and let the external come and go. Experience the external but don't hold on to it like it's law or like life can't go on or like you are a victim. Let go of this propaganda and choose to believe the best about yourself and the best about humanity. Earth is NOT going anywhere. The stars and sun and nature is not going anywhere. The sun always rises and the sun always sets. ALWAYS. So why can't we trust in what is and just enjoy?
3.) We truly have the power to be what, where, and who we want no matter what. So why do we get fixed on "the wrongs" and "being right" and "other people's opinions" and "lies and deception" and "having a voice" and "getting attention" and "gossip" and "what we wear and what we drive and what title we have at work" and "what other people think of us" when all we have to do is love ourselves and none of that would really matter. I suppose it could be conversational and another reality tv show but I would rather focus on sunshine and flowers and love.
My newest glimpses at each moment and into the future have now escalated into pure bliss and ease and feel soft and caring and nurturing and bright. I have always lead by example and will continue. So I'm gonna keep my Blublockers on and see the world as a shiny place and see the good in people and see the good in me. To live the opposite would be living a life of rules and regulations and living conditionally. I choose freedom. So yes I am FREE at LAST. I hope you will join me.
