Freedom, is having nothing to lose; and everything to gain…
Life is about evolving. Evolving is about transformation and change. Sometimes life gives you no option but to evolve. Sometimes, you’re brave enough, faithful enough, ‘crazy enough’, wise enough and courageous enough to choose evolution and transformation on your own. When you do, you venture out from your pristine comfort-zone, into the vast unknown. Lots may be uncertain and unfamiliar. What is always, assuredly, constant though – is Divine Guidance. Trust It. Flow with It. Be happy in It. It will have you “live” more authentically, more fully, more magically and more holistically wholesomely, than staying in a predictable, routine, ‘safe’ comfort-zone ever would. …And then, get familiar with It, ‘cos It’s going to call out to you again, and again, and again…
Feel It, Be It…
When you feel it, being it is natural.
When you sprout wings, it becomes your very nature to continually soar ever-higher, ever-freer and ever-expansively…
Your Guaranteed Way Of Harnessing Different Results, Is Simply By Thinking, Feeling, Being And Doing Differently.

GOD BLESS THE RAINDROPS…
I feel raindrops…
Raindrops feel me…
God bless the raindrops!
God bless me!
You, me, the rain, the stars, the moon, the sun, the trees, the seas, the breeze, the birds, the fish, the frogs, the moody geese… We are all One… Made of the same energy, emerged from One Consciousness.
Revel, sometimes, in appreciation and the joy of being kissed by the raindrops, rather than always bolting toward sheltered protection (even though we remain so very appreciative of and thankful for the blessings of comfy sturdy homes, wholesome meals, piped water for hot refreshing showers, electricity, etc.)
…What if… The rain feels you, as much as you feel the rain? ☺️
Feel the blessings of your Divine connectedness with All That Is!
God: My Life-Partner
Am I looking for marriage? Nope.
Am I looking for authentic connection? Yip, definitely!
What happens if I don’t find authentic connection with a man? I still win! I continue happily, blessedly walking my path with God as my Life-Partner, as I’ve always done…
(Do I think that God has authentic Divine connection with a man, in store for me? Yes, for sure!😉)
Let the basis be true connection, first and foremost, and then let marriage follow, if so be it. Then too, let it be rather a “celebration and declaration of the Sacred Union of togetherness, based upon freedom and mutual evolution”, rather than a “contract of stagnant obligations”.
A relationship-basis on a primary want/need for the ‘idea’ of “marriage”, as opposed to a genuine sacred spiritual foundation of heart-mind-body-soul-connection, just isn’t a turn-on for me 💕🌀💚
Blessed to be working with the most amazing, wondrous, beautiful people!
And SO appreciative too!
Find and live your joys in as many ways and in as many moments as you can! Beauty, grace and wonder abounds!
Your power is in your clarity!

Take Care of Yourself
Caring for yourself may be one of the most selfless things you can do for yourself, or for any other. You’re your best when you’re cared for, loved, appreciated and valued. Who better to do this for you than you yourself? Looking externally to others or to circumstances to an extreme extent is inessential. Once you seek, find and express internally with yourself, the external will take care of itself, flowing automatically, naturally…
•Your Primary Connection is With Yourself & The Divine:
Caring for yourself is an intimate dance of connecting with yourself. How you choose to connect with yourself or care for yourself is completely up to you. Do whatever makes you feel good. Do it often and in generous doses.
Connecting with yourself at a spirit / soul level may be your foundation for feeling at your best. Caring for yourself in this case may involve meditation, prayer or communication / communion with the Divine in whatever form this may take for you. Listen to guidance from within and talk to yourself with loving kindness. Grow into yourself with appreciation and gratitude for all that you are and for all that is.
At a different – yet interconnected – level, caring for your physical self plays a significant role in self-care. Nourishing your body with movement / exercise, wholesome delectable foods and water, love, touch, sunshine, relaxation and breathing with greater awareness may be a few of the ways you choose to value your physical self. Trusting your body and listening to it will also enhance your vitality. Be assured that your immaculate body is working for your ultimate health and wellbeing always – be kind and loving toward it. Rest sufficiently.
Exploring and discovering new, varied things – about yourself and about the world – may call out to your mind, body, spirit and heart. Engage in activities that soothe your soul, excite your being, add joy and living to your life and broaden your perspectives! Sing or whistle a tune arising spontaneously from your depths..
Perfection in caring for yourself is all about what’s perfect for you at a specific time and in a specific context. Have fun with it and listen always to your inner-guidance which arises from Source. Dance to your own rhythm.
•Your Secondary Connection is With All Others:
All of Life is connected. You’re always at One with all.
Being in a state of peace, love and connection with yourself will bring to you the gift of all other connections in your life flowing with enhanced ease, freedom, harmony and grace.
You will marvel at fresh connections of synchronicity that present you with increasing opportunities of choice and decision. You will witness your path blossoming into one of undeniable fusion with self, with Source, with all.

It Is What It Is… Or, Is It?
So yeah, things are what they are. That much is true. Not much can be done to change anything. … Is this also true? Naah… Things may indeed be as they are in the current moment, yet you always have a choice to influence the direction and outcome from its current point, forward – don’t you think?
•It Is What It Is:
What it is now is merely a culmination of past thoughts, words, actions, behaviors… All which is currently behind you has led up to this moment in time in your life’s reality. Your situation and experience in this moment of time is precisely what it is – yet, it’s still but a moment in time; and but a moment in the entirety of your life.
Your future lies ahead of you, eagerly anticipating you and your joy. What you choose to do with your now moment, sets the scene for that which unfolds before you.
•Choosing to Influence the Highest Direction and Outcome:
At any given time, and within any situation or experience of it being what it is, you hold a magnificent power of choice.
Are you going to plainly accept a less-than-great situation for what it appears to be?
Or shall you influence it for the highest good of yourself and for the highest good of all? “How?”, you ask? By simply choosing to courageously rise from, for instance, a state of despondency, despair and complacency to a happier state of faith, trust, gratitude, peace and contentment.
You see, by the simple action of choosing different thoughts and feelings about any situation, you play a mighty role in shaping the direction it unfolds in and the outcomes you get to play with.
There’s always magic hidden within anything that seems to be plainly ‘it is what it is’. Discover the magic! Have fun with the magic! Create your world to be a world of yes, it is what it is, yet there’s also so very much more – love, wonder, discovery, joy, growth, abundance, peace!

Opinions and judgments of others’ will always be there. Be they communicated to you directly or indirectly, by a look or an expression, or even by way of you being the subject of some type of formal ‘assessment’, know that these are the perceptions of another human being. Who, after-all, has the authority to decide whether something is ‘acceptable’ / ‘valuable’ / ‘favorable’ / ‘good’ / ‘nice’, ‘of worth’ or not? Not only is this ever-changing and subjective, but it’s also time and context-dependent.
• Opinions & Judgements of Others:
Every individual sees the same thing differently. Every individual feels differently about a specific thing. Every individual takes a different message from a common message communicated.
The interpretation and experience of each person varies. People filter and interpret information based upon their own experiences, beliefs, values, wants, desires and needs.
Therefore, it only makes sense that people will have different opinions of you / a thing. A person’s judgement of something / you is not solely about you, it’s also about the person doing the judging and what’s going on in his / her world.
So, smile and be happy regardless of what another thinks of you / how another views you / the manner in which a person chooses to interpret your communications or actions.
Know in your awareness that each person’s reality is different! And therefore it’s okay for a person to feel toward you the way they do / to think of you the way they do / to take from your message / action precisely what they do.
• Security in Yourself:
Nobody knows you as profoundly as you yourself do. (And if you don’t know yourself as well as you should, then you open yourself up to others’ telling you who you are – which is possibly who they would like you to be).
Your life is unique, based upon your own experiences, choices, values, beliefs, desires and dreams.
Once you know exactly who you are, you’re able to smile and settle into knowing that you’re the ultimate judge in your life, regardless of any other opinion / judgement. There is great power there.
The key is being true to your authentic self. And in being true to your authentic self, you value yourself for all that you are; you love yourself for all that you are; you take joy and pleasure in being, sharing and expressing all that you magnificently are!
It’s a great time to start upgrading your opinion of yourself and passing wholesome, loving, kind, forgiving judgments of yourself, is it not?
You hold a magnificent power within you to influence your world and the world itself. All that’s required is for you to recognize, grasp and carve this capability to suit your intentions and purpose. You will find that the outcomes yielding you maximum happiness, peace and fulfilment are achievable, regardless of what may be going on around you. Listen to your own voice; deliberately guide and steer your results by your own decisions, priorities and focus.
• Voices of Others’ and External Happenings:
Getting caught-up in the chatter and the voices of others’ may be all too easy. This could be a great thing when such voices are in harmony with your own internal voice of wisdom.
Be aware of, and continually actively assess, whether the voices you allow yourself to tune in to are in alignment with your highest good and the outcome(s) you wish to achieve.
Does going with the flow of gloominess, especially during periods of transition or change, for instance, serve your wellbeing in any way? The opinions, judgements and criticisms of others’ will always be there.
You have within you the facility of discernment and reasoning. Choose to embrace, value and exercise it for obtaining the most wholesome harvests in your life!
• Your Voice:
Yes, your internal voice may sometimes seem quieter than the external loud vocalizations of those around you. Yet your internal voice of wisdom is perhaps one of your greatest and most powerful gifts and connections to Source.
It knows you. It’s been with you throughout your life and through all of your life-experiences. It’s gotten you through some pretty trying circumstances and situations.
Trust your internal voice of wisdom and encouragement. Make it one of the primary guiding authorities in your life.
That gentle voice which comes to you in your quietest calmest moments is your thoughts of trust, faith and sunshine. It is the foundational key by which you may deliberately guide and steer your results.
Take your decisions, and establish your priorities and focus from it. The potential for change as you would like it is within you at each and every moment.
Effortlessly and freely choose, moment by moment, to transform any situation or experience for reaping your happiest life.
What is happiness? Where does it come from? How do you get more of it, more of the time? It’s mostly a choice of an attitude and a perspective, while there are several things which you can do on a practical level to boost your happiness. By these 6 simple indulgent actions, you’ll be on your way: 1) Simplify; 2) Do an activity you enjoy; 3) Love your Body; 4) Stimulate your Mind; 5) Merge with Purpose; 6) Celebrate!
Simplify your life by eliminating things and routines which no longer contribute toward your overall wellbeing. Sometimes we hold on to things, behaviors and familiar ways of being and doing simply ‘cos it’s what we know and it’s the way “it’s always been done”, even if it may not optimally serve our current purposes and lifestyle.
The more you de-clutter, the more energy and free-flow you will naturally experience in your life.
Playing is wonderful for your heart, mind, body and spirit.
What this entails to you, how you do it, where or with whom is of no consequence – just make sure that you do it; and that you do it often!
Time is limited, true; you have serious responsibilities, also true. So if you must, schedule time(s) to engage in activities which you enjoy. The power of its renewal-factor upon your energy-levels and enthusiasm will most probably also override the procrastination-factor to engage in those activities you don’t enjoy as much.
Your natural state of life is flow and happiness. Therefore, why not spend as much, or (logically) more, time on activities that truly make your heart sing?
Your body registers and responds superbly to your thoughts, emotions, the foods you nourish it with, the air-temperature and atmospheric pressure, amongst an array of other things.
The sights of your dearest ones or a glorious sunrise, the scent of raindrops freshly spattered upon the earth, the playful chirping of the birds in the trees, the tantalizing dance of flavors upon your tongue, the glorious feel of warm sunshine on your skin, the explosiveness of tender raw orgasm…
Intuitive healing of wounds and of disease, the creation of inflammation to protect your body from further injury, the production of pain to alert you of something not-so-right, the regeneration of cells…
These are but some of the innumerable gifts of your body to you. It works miraculously all on its own, without reminders from anyone and in perfect harmony and unison with what needs to be done moment to moment. It re-balances, heals and restores.
Keep your body happy by luxuriating it in a few simple things: care, nourishment, exercise, ample rest and relaxation. Pay heed to it too when it whispers to you (preferably so that it doesn’t have to reach a stage of having to scream at you to bring your attention to what’s going on).
Your body’s your greatest gift and anchor in this lifetime; guiding you always toward wholesome wellbeing and happiness. Love your body.
A supple and agile mind is the core of your happiness and wellbeing. Your experiences may sometimes be beyond your control; yet the perspectives you decide to choose about your experiences determine your path forward.
An engaged mind with a curiosity about the wonders of life will ensure that you’re always at your peak, regardless of what may come your way.
Remember also to sufficiently rest your mind though.
There’s great joy to be found in engaging purposefully. Your sense of fulfilment will be proportionate to the meaning you attribute to your undertakings.
Happiness gained from purpose fulfilled is of a different quality to happiness gained from activities engaged in solely to quell boredom, to pass time, or to fulfil routine without exactly remembering ‘why’.
Things to be thankful for and appreciative of are many. Embrace them; celebrate them!
They don’t have to be mind-blowing super-successes, or even traditional occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries or the New Year. Neither do ‘celebrations’ have to be elaborate undertakings.
Honor the first rains of the season with a mug of hot-chocolate, celebrating the cozy comfort of your home, for instance.
It’s your awareness of the gifts present all around in your everyday life, coupled with your intention of purposeful gratitude, which will forever guide you toward more meaningful happy celebrations…
Do you long to live and thrive in happiness more often? What’s holding you back? Possibly some of the things which you have in your life, rather than things you don’t have? By assessing your current space and determining your ‘nice’-space / your optimal-space, you have the power to choose whether letting go will feed your happiness.
What sorts of thoughts, feelings, situations and experiences are you predominantly keeping for company these days?
Freedom, lightness, joy, living-in-the-moment? A passion for life? A sense of fulfilment, peace and calm? Love, trust, faith, inner quiet, knowingness and serenity? Are you primarily maintaining these thoughts, feelings and outlooks regardless of the circumstances, situations and experiences which come your way?
Or might you perhaps be leaning primarily toward anxiety, fear, anger, disappointment, sadness, doubt, envy, jealousy? Rejection? Hurt? Pain? Doubt? Uncertainty? Betrayal? Judgement? Worthlessness? Guilt?
Are you perhaps being weighed down by the burden of a secret? Insecurity? Loneliness? Tension? Stress? A need to be perfect? The approval of another? Responsibility that isn’t yours to bear? Being caged in preconceptions? Drama? A mistake made? The past? The future (in your ‘waiting’)?
Your status? Your position? Your title? Your salary?
Are you holding on to a gorgeous pair of shoes that pinch at your little-toe with every step you take? A luxurious coat which you haven’t worn in years ‘cos there hasn’t been a ‘special’ enough occasion to wear it to yet?
With contemplation and an enhanced awareness of the types of thoughts and feelings you predominantly experience, comes your power to choose what type of space you would actually like to be in.
Your thoughts may be random and may also often be based upon subconscious influences, true. Yet it is you who ultimately commands the power and free-will choice of what you hold on to and what you let go of on a conscious level.
By nature’s law, that which you choose to focus on is usually strengthened, while that which you diminish significance toward slackens its power to influence you.
What do you want to strengthen and grow in your life? Your happiness and your freedom? Perhaps your trust and your faith? Peace and calm? If so, that’s where you would do best focusing your attention.
Let the worry and anxiety go; ease up on the doubt (particularly on the self-doubt); and stay clear of the path of being swept up in, or contributing to, chaos and clutter.
Keep in mind that situations and circumstances can change in an instant by factors either within or beyond your control – both whether you choose to hold on to things or whether you choose to let go.
Yet now that you know what benefits your life positively and places you in a ‘nice’-space, it should be easier to let go of those things which don’t; or at least to loosen you attachment to, and the level of significance you attribute to, certain things.
Remember that you choose to hold onto something when it serves a purpose in your life. Only you can determine if the qualities of that purpose and the impact it has upon your life benefits you in the long-term on a human level.
By ‘human level’ I mean that sometimes when you don’t have much / are at rock-bottom, you realize how blessed you are with the simple things which you do have in life. If you lose your job which you placed much significance on, for instance, you come to realize that who you inherently are is not dependent upon the work you did, or upon what others thought of you in your position regardless of how much in others’ esteem you may have been held.
If an illness befalls you, or if you’re involved in an accident and lose a limb; you’re still the same person. Your capabilities may shift, yet your value and your lovability remains. And under such circumstances you may even develop abilities of previously-latent potentials.
Things change. Life changes. The superficial attributions of what society considers to be ‘valuable’ fluctuate from moment to moment, and may even be dependent on what is ‘fashionable’ at a specific time. Your genuine worth and value always remains.
The more often you choose to let go of / reduce the value of non-beneficial elements, the easier it is to do. Your thoughts, attitudes and behaviors sculpt neural pathways in your mind. When you repeat something often enough (for instance, a thought or an action), it becomes easier and easier for your mind to identify with and a pattern is developed. These dominant patterns become your go-to responses in situations.
Why not nurture your go-to-response to being that of letting-go of that which doesn’t impact your life to genuine happiness and joy 😌
Don’t wait on the ‘special’ moments; your every ‘now’ moment is a special moment; choose to make it so, and so will it be 😌
Choose wisely. Let go, breathe, flow free, smile 😌
