When Things Don’t Go as Planned

8 comments

When faced with an undesired situation see the situation as not what you feel it is, but as e new possibility that you will choose it to be.  In doing so you are practicing shifting the experience or what is occurring for you to something else.  Something more uplifting, edifying and more desirable; something you can learn and grow from.

Everything we experience occurs to us in language as we describe the events and feelings, and interpret through language.  Everything can be changed in language by changing the way you speak about the experience, assigning new language to experience to create a new possibility of what is.

Practice creating your life with the language you chose to assign to your experiences.

Be blessed, be beautiful!  Love and Light.  Stay bright!

What is Reality?

9 comments

“What is reality?  Is it what we believe, our faith and the miracles we have experienced?  Is it our intuition or gut feeling?  Some may say reality is only that which is tangible, or that which is physical.  Something is physical when it has: an occupation of space; has some form to it; and can exist in time.  It can be measured in distance, time and form.  Physical elicits things somewhere in time and space.

Some may say reality in the norm, or the law, authorities, anything that is repetitive, predictable, the consensus, what experts say, and/or what is logical.   However, norms, and the laws our governments and countries created all fall under an agreement.  People make agreements of what is right or wrong, healthy or unhealthy, what’s trendy and what’s not, etc., and most agree and call it reality.  The truth is WE LIVE IN A UNIVERSE OF AGREEMENTS.  One agreement is physical and the other is linguistic.  Being human seems to often be a function of agreements and agreements are transformable, thus human beings are transformable.  Entertain the idea that THERE IS NO REALITY INDEPENDENT OF LANGUAGE.  IT ALL ARISES IN LANGUAGE.  Whether reality is physical, an agreement, or spiritual it is all described and understood through language.

With this idea presented, I encourage you to REALIZE THE POWER OF YOUR WORD AND YOUR SPEECH.  Use your language to create the life you want.  To speak your best intentions into existence and act in accordance with your word in be integrity.  Commit to your word.  Your word has much more power than you realize.  Try creating a positive affirmation or mantra and chant that daily, or pick one word and say that word on one tone.  Take a deep breath in say the word as you breath out as long as you can.  Repeat that process.  It will ground you, give you a feeling of lightness, and better align you with the word that you are toning.  Embrace your power in the things you say!

I wish you much love and Light.  Stay bright!”

Follow Your Dreams

4 comments
Sometimes it’s so scary following your dreams. You occasionally catch yourself doubting the dream fulfilling. Even if you don’t doubt and you factually and logistically know your dreams can manifest, you shy away from how great and big your dream can be. Stepping into your higher self and manifesting your dreams can be intimidating. You’re not used to it, maybe you feel like you don’t deserve it. Maybe you feel isolated because most people around you aren’t thinking of life’s unlimited potential or possibilities.  You have to be accountable to yourself which is a discipline, consistency, and effort. Nothing spectacular comes without much effort and determination. Hold on strong. Just as you are about to give up that’s when the breakthrough comes. The doors are opened. You just have to navigate your way through them. Stay encouraged. Stay focused. Stay blessed. Allow and embrace your dreams and success will manifest!  It is done now. Love and light. Stay bright.

Happy Place

13 comments

Hello and welcome you beautiful being.  I wrote a song called “Happy Place” for a  Music Therapy session where the song was used as a tool to de-escalate negative emotions and shift our attention to something that comforts.  My music meditations are always prefaced with a breathing exercise to center ourselves; be more in control and present. There are so many breathing techniques and breathing meditations out there.  The following is one of the many you can do to prepare yourself for this meditation called “Happy Place”.

1.  Change your physiology by elongating the spine while taking a deep breath in. Roll your shoulders back and down.
2.  Stretch your arms to your sides and over your head as you take another deep breath in.
3.  While deeply breathing in and out with this upright posture, roll your neck around, then in the other direction.
4.  Try inhaling then twisting your whole upper body to the right side as you exhale.  With every inhale you elongate the spine, with every exhale you twist even further.  Do this on the other side.

Now that you are more relaxed and loose imagine with detail, using as many senses as possible, what your safe place is. This is the place that makes you feel happy, peaceful, harmonious, loved, or a place of safe escape.  Take as much time as you need to envision this “Happy Place”.  What does it look like, feel like, sound like, and possibly even taste like.  Brighten the colors you see.  Make the images vivid!  Turn up the volume of the sounds.  Escape to this place.

In the even that your mind keeps wondering, or you are distracted, do your best to remain focused on the breath to come back to your center and gain more focused control.  If a thought comes in let it go.  Do not sit with the thought, entertain it, dwell, analyze, or put meaning or attachment to it.  Release it and come back to observing the breath, then transition back on to your “Happy Place”.

Hold this feeling for as long as you can.  You have just re calibrated to a better feeling!

In a 1:1 or group session I would be singing my music mediation “Happy Place” while you are engaged in imaging your happy place.  The music is used to fortifying the mood, feeling, and images conjured up.  It helps set the tone.

Love and Light!”
