Make Love…With Life

Make Love…With Life:

All of life is love. Make love, in every moment, with everything. ❤️💚

Be in love, with Life…with all.

Love is a state of being…If you view love as something to be directed at only a lover/friend/family member/pet, etc. – you’re missing the true essence of love.💚❤️

Dance And Thrive With Each Other:

Dance And Thrive With Each Other:

Your feelings, just like your thoughts, are a choice. You wield power over them, by your chosen perspectives, attention and attitudes.

Complement, co-create, evolve, grow, transform, support, play, dance and thrive together/with each other; or compete with and engage in mind games and power struggles against each other, resultantly dwelling in insecurities due to misaligned perceptions…

It’s simply and solely a matter of what you choose and what you focus upon.

If you feel emasculated, simply by me being me, and by you being you… You have a choice: 1) Step up, empower yourself; or 2) Step out, enjoy yourself.

GOD BLESS THE RAINDROPS…

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

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 💕🌀💚

All You Ever Have To Be Is You

All You Ever Have To Be Is You

Love you. Adore you. Be you.

You’re enough.

Dedicate your energy to the true you. Not to anybody else’s version of you, and most especially not to your version of someone else you believe is ‘better’ than you.

You’re wholly you for a reason.

If you were meant to be anybody else, you’d be them… Do you truly, genuinely wish to be someone else?

If you do, then you simply haven’t yet discovered your own extraordinary magnificence. And all you’d have to do to conceive your splendor, is to pay foremost and ultimate attention to yourself for a while.

You being you, is your purpose.

Be true to your purpose. Live your purpose. Thrive in joy in every moment with your Divinely ordained purpose.

Be simply you.

All Is Perfection

All Is Perfection

Trust that all’s working out for your best and highest, always.

There’s much in the bigger picture of the Divine Plan, which you may not be able to clearly see at any point in time.

Yet all is well. It always will be well.

You’re a magnificent child of the Universe. It’s a given that you’re taken care of, always. You’re loved, supported, deeply cared for…

Most significantly, you’re Divinely Guided in every moment of your life.

Rest, relax and have faith in the knowledge that everything is always working out for your Highest Good – especially when it seems to you, from your limited human perspective, that it isn’t.

In your surrender, trust and faith, you allow Universal energy to work with you, rather than you striving on your own.

All is Perfection.

Surrender, Fly Free To Succeed

Surrender, Fly Free To Succeed

Control may be a positive quality when it comes to discipline, responsibility, focus and accountability, for instance. It may oftentimes be the fuel behind your perseverance and successes in life. Yet, have you ever noticed the difference in the quality of your feelings between achieving a goal:

When you’ve been in a surrendered and trusting state and space

As opposed to:

• When you’ve been in an anxiety-filled, rigid and controlling state and space?

Does there seem to be a distinct difference in the quality of each?

Controlling Your Way To Success:

How does aiming to be in control all of the time, make you feel? Does it relax you? Does it make you feel like you’re conquering the world in an ordered, prepared and sequential way?

Does it stress you out? Does it leave you feeling like you’re living on-edge?

A fact of life is that we cannot control everything. It’s in the nature of things to be changing.

As much as one may succeed at controlling a very large portion of his / her life, one still cannot predict absolutely everything. A reasonably large portion of life is unknown – dependent upon various factors aside from oneself.

What happens then, when you encounter something that’s beyond your control? How do you feel? How do you react? Do you clamor to make sense of things and to restore ‘order’ and ‘control’ as you know it? Or, are you able to easily accept, adapt and go with the flow?

Surrendering Your Way To Success:

There’s great strength and power in intentionally choosing to surrender. It calls for deep trust – in yourself, in the Universe.

Surrender is one of the most amazing gifts you will ever bestow on yourself.

Allowing you to be in the moment, to live fully and wholly, and to experience life from a space and state of freedom, joy and relief – surrender is being at one with Divine Grace.

Living from a place of surrender will ensure that you always succeed – for from such a place of trust and faith, all is and always will be well. You know, for a fact, that you will always be Divinely Guided.

As an added bonus, you – in wisdom – allow yourself the opportunity to live your life in a continual state of ease and bliss, minus having to be perfect or to have all be perfect. Thriving from a feeling-space of ease and bliss will surely attract greater quantities and qualities of the same to you, as you gently perfect the art of surrendering…

Love Yourself, More, Always

Love Yourself, More, Always

When’s a good time to love you? How often do you shower yourself with just as much love as you do your dearly beloved ones? When is it okay, ‘good’ or even ‘acceptable’ to love yourself truly, deeply, genuinely, abundantly?

… Now. In every moment. Always. Your greatest, deepest and most constant love lives and thrives within you. As much as your love is for sharing, caring and healing of others’, your love is also one of your greatest, simplest gifts to you.

Treasure this Love of Divine Source energy which sings, dances and celebrates Life within your soul, within every molecule and cell of your being.

This phenomenal support, strength and caring is permanently with you, for you – and shall remain with you in every moment, through eternity.

In times of feeling lost, alone or not understood, your spirit calls out to you more than ever for you to be there for you – to reach for your Higher Self, your Spirit Self.

Regardless of what may be going on in your life – trust, know and rest assured that love-essence is your blessing, your grace.

Love yourself, more, always…

Take Care of Yourself

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.

Balance, connect and align within; you will assuredly balance, connect and align with All.

It Is What It Is… Or, Is It?

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!

Trust in the Flow

All is in Order. Perfect Order. Flowing with the current in trust, faith and relaxation is possibly one of the kindest, most loving things you can do for yourself. This means flowing always toward your greatest wellbeing and joy, regardless of the circumstances around you / the issues you may be facing. It means finding the best in every situation and flowing with the stream of those thoughts, ideas, feelings and actions that carry you toward the light and the blessings.

• All is in Perfect Order:

Think about it for a moment… How much that happens is out of your control – in your own life, in society, in the world? Lots, right? And yet how much of your life has worked out quite amazingly well for you, notwithstanding all that’s happened and may be happening, would you say?

So long as you continue to choose your thoughts for your highest wellbeing and guide yourself constantly toward reaching for feelings of happiness and peace, all will always be well.

• Finding the Best in Every Situation:

Life is change. One of the constants is your inherent value as a human being.

Whatever may be going on, the potential for its opposite is also there. Duality is a natural part of life.

In every situation which you find challenging, there’s always a solution. It will come to you easiest when you bring into your awareness the possibility of a solution existing. Then simply relax in trust and faith, allowing yourself to be open to receiving.

Life is movement. Going with the flow of the movement is natural, easier and uses immensely less energy than pushing against the flow.

Know that you’re Guided always by Source / God / the Universe. Trust in the flow. Glide along your path in lightness and happiness of being…

Your Ultimate Judge is You!

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 Were Born to Thrive

You Were Born to Thrive

Life is meant to be happy. Feeling a sense of peace, love, wholeness and contentment with yourself and life is natural. Excitement, wonder, carefreeness and enjoyment are vital states of your being. It only looks wonderful, makes sense and feels amazing for you to thrive, and not merely survive, does it not?

Life is Meant to Be Happy:

• Do you believe that it was the Creator’s intention for you to be happy?

…For sure!

• When you feel worry / anxiety / hurt / pain / doubt / insecurity / boredom, can you identify a state that you were in before?

…Was your mood perhaps one of peace / contentment / joy / acceptance / love / excitement?

• What initiated a change in your state?

…Your thoughts, perhaps?

• How do you feel when you allow all less-than-pleasant thoughts to drift away, even in trying situations?

…Don’t you feel free, happy and in control of your life?

• What stops you from choosing this in every possible moment?

…Remember, every situation is multi-dimensional having multiple perspectives; take what is best for you from any situation and move forward with your empowered choice!

It’s Only Natural for You To Thrive:

• The world is abundant with all things you need, want and desire.

• Source / God intended for you to thrive in fulfillment.

• All is well.

• Being happy, having fun and maintaining a state of calm lightness will ensure you’re moving ever deeper into alignment with your purpose(s) and choices.

You Decree Your Destiny

A magnificently amazing potent co-creator with Divine Source is who you are. By your very thoughts, words, intentions, focus and behaviors, you set the scene for the outcomes in your life. Each of these, and each and all of your longings and desires carry with them energy. This energy determines the vibrations you emit, which in turn determines what you attract into your life. The more clear and focused you are, and the more congruent your thoughts, words and behaviors, the greater the influence and impact on your results.

Focus:

Your focus determines where your energy flows. Where your energy flows is a consequence of what you decide to give your attention to and place your awareness on.

It’s a matter of choice.

As you increasingly choose to rid yourself of distractions, interruptions, doubts and insecurities, so you enhance the power of the actualization of your desires by your trust, faith and targeted attention.

Congruency:

Your targeted attention coupled with genuine feelings of ease and belief in your outcome holds the potential of bringing into you the force of untainted alignment.

Alignment, both within yourself and with Source / God / the Universe, is magic in your hands.

Freedom and Joy is Yours

Freedom and Joy is Yours

At your core, you’re free. The essence of who you are is a spirit of joy and freedom. So, freedom is already a part of you, just like joy is. There’s no need to strive for it, search for it, or work toward it. All you have to do is recognize its presence, allow it to be as significant a part of your life as you desire, and enjoy it.

• Freedom:

What are you truly? Are you your career, or your relationship-status? Perhaps a mum, a dad, a sibling, a manager, an employee, a sports(wo)man, a politician, a student, a leader, a man, a woman? Yes, you may be one or more of these; however, minus the labels you’re simply a human being.

In your pure human state, before the labels of what you do, how you’re defined, or what you’ve accumulated through your life, you’re simply a human being. A spirit with a body, doing your best to thrive in a human-conditioned experience.

And in your core immaculate human state, you’re a light free being of love and bliss. You may sometimes tend to think that just as you’ve had to acquire and accrue all in your life, that you also have to endeavor toward freedom or joy.

Yet the absolute glorious beauty is that freedom and joy are both already yours. It’s what was there at the very beginning; it’s what will always remain once all the layers of identity have been peeled away.

Your amazing power lies in being aware of, recognizing and embracing the constant eternal availability of this flexibility and liberty in your life. Bring it into your awareness, truly feel it, and live it in any situation and experience your desire. It’s simply your choice.

• Joy:

L your inherent internal eternal freedom in any situation or experience is integral to knowing that joy is yours.

Freedom of choice is yours. It is you who ultimately determines what you want to make of a situation. You choose how to respond and proceed from any given point.

Your feelings are actually within your control. They arise with your thoughts. Steer and guide your thoughts in a favorable direction in any situation, and you simultaneously successfully shift your emotions.

Your natural state is joy, so you don’t have to chase after it. It’s already with you, within you.

Let go of the worry, the doubt, the anxiety – you will find that all that remains is peace, calm, love and happiness. Flow with its beauty, dance with its energy, laugh with its frivolity – for as long as you fancy.

Maneuver Your Attention to Maximize Your Intention

Allow all things that do not match the state you desire to drift past your awareness. Focus on the joy and fulfilment of accomplishing the outcomes you desire. You, being naturally one with the Universal Creator, are the primary creator in your life.

Your intention is your purpose, your seed, your starting-point, the core of your desire.

Craft your intention. Personalize it. Be sure that it’s what you really want and that it’s what will serve your best overall interests.

Most significantly, allow and encourage yourself to feel the fulfilment, the happiness, the joy, the exhilaration, the peace and the comfort of having your intention / purpose achieved, even while it’s still germinating.

  • Nurture Your Attention:

Nourish your intention and purpose with all of the care and love it needs to flourish, blossom, bloom and thrive.

A plant requires adequate water, sunlight and fertile soil to grow healthily and beautifully. Feed your awareness, your mind, your body and your emotions only with those things that progress your outcome.

  • Prune Your Focus:

Ignore / eliminate those things (thoughts, feelings, doubts, judgements, perceptions) that don’t positively contribute toward the achievement of your outcome. Snip away distractions that may move you out of alignment with your purpose.

Act with your energy and your attention directed and focused on trust, faith and belief in the fulfilment of your desire and the achievement of your purpose.

  • Harvest Your Outcome:

Having aligned your thoughts, feelings, awareness, focus and actions with your desired purpose and intent, relax into welcoming wondrous creations into your life. You’re a powerful creator in your life.

Embracing Freedom

Embracing Freedom

Aaaah, to be happy and free… The lightness and joy of just ‘being’ – a state available to you in every moment. Regardless of where you are, who you’re with, who and what your commitments and responsibilities are toward, how you may be perceived or judged by another, where you’ve come from or what you’ve done, it is you who is ultimately in control of your each and every moment. By the choices of your thoughts, your points of focus and your responses to situations, circumstances and experiences beyond your control, you hold within yourself the power of your freedom.

Your Thoughts:

Your thoughts… oh, the immensity and the elation of the creative power which lies therein! Yes, by your very thoughts you mold your world. Focus on uplifting, happy thoughts in any circumstance, and you naturally set the scene for the unfoldment of your wellbeing. If things could go wrong, they could also go right!

Allow your thoughts to flow in the direction of your inspiration, and experience yourself gravitate toward exhilaration and fulfilment. Similarly, allow any less-than-satisfying thoughts to drift over, across and past your mind… freely, effortlessly…

Your Points of Focus:

Blessings abound. You have total and complete freedom of choice in terms of where you place your attention and what you choose to focus upon.

Remember, what you dedicate your energy toward is what and where your life will move toward. Focusing upon the blessings, opportunities, joys and wholesomeness in any situation will ensure that you’re consistently moving along your highest life-path.

Make the best of the rest, permitting yourself a growth of freedom and a freedom of growth.

Your Responses to Situations, Circumstances and Experiences:

Be a victor over the situations, circumstances and experiences you find yourself within. Take the time you need (even, and perhaps especially, when you feel driven to act immediately).

Respond with action after consideration where possible, having guided your thoughts and points of focus intentionally and in awareness for your greatest good.

Trust that there is perfection to be found in even the most challenging of times. All is in Order. Float free in your knowingness and trust in the Greater Plan of Life.

‘Now’ Is Your Best Time

‘Now’ Is Your Best Time

How often do you find yourself putting-off something that you’d love to do / procrastinating, simply ‘cos a voice in your head whispers to you that all is not yet ideal and that you should wait? Clear priorities and responsible decision-making are a great way to go indeed; so too, there’s wisdom in solidly assessing any situation. Yet, all being situation and context-dependent of course, have you ever considered that ‘now’ may actually be your best time?!

There’s Perfection in Your Now

This moment is your most valuable time. The past is done, the future is variable, now is the time most in your power. Accept your now, maximizing it for your wellbeing and happiness – even if this means contentedly accepting things which are beyond your control. Remember, the sh*t is not going to last for forever. By finding your peace in the now, you set the scene for the unfoldment of your future moments…and so it goes.

There’s fragments of perfection in your now, regardless of what may be going on. Embrace feeling good in the moment, no matter how ‘small’ or large a blessing you may have been granted. Absorbing and appreciating the feeling of an invigorating shower, or the fresh scent of rains upon the earth, or the happy sound of crickets chirping, or the free-flow of energy after a good workout – all magnificent ways of sensing, embracing perfection in your present.

Do what you want to, get active in your now; what will come, will come – let the future be. Be not afraid of what could go wrong; imagine, think and focus upon all the wonderful things that could go right. Wait not on the ‘perfect moment’; make it, create it, for yourself – now and in each moment that you so choose! Gifts and blessings abound for your taking.

Right Now, You’re the Youngest You’ll Ever Again Be

Do you sometimes think, “I’m too old for that!”? Whether it relates to something you’d like to do / experience, or perhaps an item of clothing you know in your heart (and skin) you’d feel fabulous in, or possibly even a long-term relationship that you’d like to change in some way?

Has the ‘age factor’ ever stopped you from doing what you might’ve otherwise done? If so, ponder on this: in this very moment, you’re the youngest you’ll ever again be!

Yes, in this moment, you’re the youngest you’ll ever again be!

And so it goes from this moment to your next, and your next…

So really – do you still think it’s a good idea to wait? Or to not now joyously and bravely do what your spirit sings to you to do?

Stop Waiting, Start Living!

Stop Waiting, Start Living!

Ever consider how much time you spend ‘waiting’ on something or someone? Yet surely what’s going to happen will happen? So why procrastinate with your life in anticipation, doubt, worry, anxiety, uncertainty? Make a wise simple choice: embrace each moment of your life with purpose and focus, living every moment fully and joyfully, doing what brings you happiness! And while you’re ‘living’, those awaited ‘happenings’ will spontaneously transpire.

Embrace Each Moment of Your Life with Purpose:

A moment is but an instant in your life, true. Yet each and every moment adds up. Does waiting and obsessing on an outcome make the awaited happen sooner? Nope. In fact, it possibly makes the time appear more drawn-out and burdensome, prolonging your agony.

Dedicating yourself to happy, fulfilling and purposeful activities, however, will ensure calmness of your being and a natural flow with the Universe. Once you’ve achieved clarity of your outcome, actioned your intentions and done what’s needed to be done, let it go. The rest will follow without any action and stressing on your part.

Continue living your life fully, on purpose and with purpose. There is much loving, experiencing, playing and working to be done in the moment, in now. It requires your presence, your participation, your energy!

You will find that creating and living purposefully is a part of the bigger-picture of joyously and inevitably manifesting that which you may be waiting on.

Embrace Each Moment of Your Life with Focus:

Focus not on what you don’t yet have (the ‘awaited’); focus upon what you do have. Your life is already brimming with blessings and love (it is!). Recognize the blessings for that which they are; savor the fruit in gratitude and appreciation.

You will find that while you’re living from a space of fulfilment and joy in embracing your current abundance, more will flow – naturally, freely, bountifully.

Turn your attention happily and effortlessly toward trust, faith, knowingness. Your attitude of being cheerfully focused on each present moment will stimulate an energy of positivity around and within you.

Consciously decide to live each moment of your life with purpose and focus; be assured that goodness, happiness and fulfilment will ripple and flow. The world is full of goodness and bliss, just ‘waiting’ on your taking 😌

Gifts in Rejection

Gifts in Rejection

The feelings arising from being refused, unaccepted, dismissed or even simply unacknowledged usually make us feel imperfect, unworthy and small. It may even trigger feelings of abandonment. Yet, there are many a gift and blessing to be found in rejection, a few of which include: freedom; self-acceptance; and trusting the flow of life.

Freedom:

In any relationship situation, whether personal or professional, your acceptance or not is usually dependent upon the judgements and perceptions of another human being toward you. I say ‘human being’ ‘cos we often tend to place the value of the person doing the rejecting at a higher level than we value ourselves. Yet yes, he / she too is human.

Equally so, every person / organization has preferences and needs. These are most probably based on their own past experiences, as well as on their current desires and needs. Should you not fit into their plans, accept it with contentment for what it is; in the knowledge and trust that both you and the other party will find a match.

After all, you want to be wanted, needed, valued and loved for all that ‘you’ are, right? If you’re not that fit for somebody, allow them to move on to their fit. Your own fit definitely exists and is more wonderful than you currently imagine. He / she / they will love, accept, value and adore you (mostly) for all that you are, as you are – and you will know it and feel it.

In the interim, embrace the glorious feelings of lightness and abandonment which can blossom and bloom from rejection. A definite positive is that you now know where you stand. Bid farewell to simmering in uncertainty or to waiting on the approval of another.

Focus. On yourself. Create your own path. You may choose to change something learned from your experience, or you may simply move forward with accepting yourself wholly and fully for all of the Spirit-created wonder which you are. The choice and decision is completely yours – to move forward in freedom from this point onward.

Self-Acceptance:

Your rejection by someone is not a reflection of your value or your worth. Neither is it a reflection of your lovability.

Nothing external (mistakes made, shortcomings, foibles) changes the being that you are. Everyone is on a learning path. It’s a continual process of growth and evolution. And regardless of how ‘perfect’ another may seem to be, know that he / she is no more ‘perfect’ than you yourself are. Just as you don’t know their full story, so too, they don’t know your full story.

You’re the writer of your own story. Take the lead, be the lead and script your story your way. Generously include all of the awesomeness and magnificence which is already you!

You’re lovable. You’re so very valuable. Perfectly as you are. Yes, in all of your imperfections and humanness. It’s up to ‘you’ to accept you: in your heart, in your mind, at your core.

Embrace yourself; in joy, in confidence, in love. Shine.

Trusting the Flow:

When rejected, trust that it’s okay. And that it’s most possibly even a part of the Greater Plan for your life, which you cannot clearly see at this moment in time.

Life is about change, this too shall pass.

Hold on to the best in yourself; let all else go.

Flow with the current of the river, allow it to guide and carry you; battle not against it. Surely, in its Greater Natural Wisdom, it will carry you to a space and to a place which is optimally peaceful, happy and fulfilling for you.

When you glance back upon your life later down the line, trust that perfection is what you will see and feel 😌

6 Indulgently Practical Ways to Boost Happiness

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!

  1. Simplify:

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.

  1. Do an activity you enjoy:

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?

  1. Love your body:

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.

  1. Stimulate your Mind:

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.

  1. Merge with Purpose:

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’.

  1. Celebrate:

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…

Wisdom in Letting Go

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.

  • Assess your Current Space:

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?

  • Determine your ‘Nice’-Space:

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.

  • Choose to Let Go:

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 😌

2 Universal Reasons Why Choosing to Be Happy Only Makes Sense

2 Universal facts of life: 1. Upsetting situations will constantly be around; 2. A moment is a moment that cannot be gotten back. Isn’t it therefore most logical a choice to make peace and let go; directing your focus toward your own wellbeing, contentment and happiness in as many moments as possible?

  1. Upsetting situations will constantly be around:

Make peace with it upfront, now, once-and-for-all: there’ll constantly be situations, experiences and people to upset you. Try as you may, you cannot control this; it’s just a (wonderfully cr*ppy!) part of life. 😌

Hehehehe, as an equalizer, sometimes you’re the one in the role of the ‘upsetter’ (the one doing something to result in another being upset) – unintentionally, of course; while someone else is the ‘upsetee’ (upset with you).

Either way, it’s just human nature that things sometimes don’t flow according to your vision or your plan; and you don’t always get your desires, wants and needs met (or sometimes you do, but not to the standards you expect).

So why not simply choose to laugh at the reality of a situation, accept it for what it is, let go and move on as care-freely and as peacefully as possible? After all, it’s almost certain that nobody else (certainly not the person upsetting you) is paying the situation as much attention as you yourself are. Neither is anyone else wasting any energy over it.

Make peace (even if it’s the best kind – just quietly internally with yourself). Let go, move on, be happy!

…Remember to press replay when the next situation rolls around. 😌

  1. A moment is a moment that cannot be gotten back:

You’re driving down a middle-lane of the highway, following all of the road-rules, and with your awareness in peak form. You’re merrily whistling along to your favorite tune and you’re in the flow while you’re maximizing your good feelings before arriving at the office for a crazy day ahead…

You made a conscious decision to be happy, well done! 😌

Then, another driver whizzes by you and honks his horn endlessly, sticking his middle-finger out of his car-window…

Of course, it’s a baffling and upsetting situation to say the least, ‘cos you obviously don’t know where his actions originated from.

How do you react? Do you instantly sign-language him also? Do you give chase? Do you allow the experience to consume you for the remainder of your drive? Do you perhaps vent to colleagues at work (which almost certainly spirals into at least a 20minute complaining-session about the state of the traffic in general)?

Or do you, in all of your wisdom and care for yourself, decide to give the situation the few seconds of attention that it deserves (albeit if only to get over the shock), and move on with the balanced flow of your life again?

Perhaps even wish the seemingly crazy guy well, in your heart and in your mind? After all, who knows what’s going on his life, or what that incident was really about? Or even if it was truly intended to be directed at you?

Challenging situations and experiences – sometimes heart-wrenching, mind-numbing, spirit-sapping and mind-boggling – will come along in life. It’s not like there’s going to be any shortage of cr*ppy moments for you to deal with.

So why choose anything other than peace and calm (if not outright happiness) in each other moment that you’re actually capable of doing so?

A moment spent in being upset, angry, disappointed or fearful is a moment of your life lost. All the moments of your life make up your lifetime. Given a choice, wouldn’t you choose to be in happiness and peace in each moment, rather?

Each moment is your moment. Choose how you feel in every moment. Brighten your thoughts and allow your emotions to automatically lighten.

Let go, choose you, it only makes sense! 😌

3 Valuably Amazing Things that You Already Have to Be Happy

It’s true, happiness is a subjective thing. What makes another happy may not necessarily make you happy. Yet, your happiness is truly not dependent on any other. Your perspective, your attitude and your action-choices are 3 valuably amazing things that you already have to be happy…

  1. Your Perspective

Have you ever noticed how different things look when you’re standing at a point, or even driving from one point to another; as opposed to the way they look when you scan the picture from an aeroplane or from the vantage point of a high building?

This is just a matter of perspective. From one point, your vision is somewhat limited; from the other, your vision is vastly expanded.

When you’re engulfed in a situation or an experience which doesn’t feel good, gently remind yourself that you’re in a limited-perspective space.

Regardless of what’s going on or how much you may be able to see, know that there’s a bigger picture and more at work than you may be aware of at a certain point in time. And even though all you may see is the dark gloomy clouds, the magnificent sun surely is there!

Choose a perspective which brings you peace and happiness. Trust. Surely from this, light will flow.

  1. Your Attitude

Aaaaah yes, the amazing power of your thoughts! Why not choose to use them wisely, for your own maximum wellbeing and happiness?!

It’s not easy to control your thoughts, I agree; particularly when circumstances challenge. Yet, have you ever considered that you don’t have to control them? Let yourself off the hook, breathe deeeep and eeeasy. Allow your thoughts to flow; while you merely direct them toward a happier outlook and chosen outcome for yourself.

Creating more and deeper levels of happiness and contentment in your life doesn’t have to be an instant thing. Embrace it for what it is – a process of gradual, conscious transformation.

With an attitude of happiness, what quality of experiences will follow, do you think?

  1. Your Action-Choices

Seeing things with an expanded awareness (your perspective) and thinking more positively (your attitude) over a sustained period of time, should have the automatic and joyous side-effect of generating different actions.

The action-choices you make are then but the gifts of your evolved perspective and attitude. And when your action-choices change, know for certain that your experiences will change!

How amazingly and wonderfully powerful is it to know for a fact that you already possess the primary things that you need to be happy?! 😌
