Life is Short, Buy the Shoes…..
I am including a couple of photos of me from this weekend. There is no photo shop and no touch-ups…..I have posted this photo because I am proud of myself and I admit, that comes directly from my ego and vanity. You see, today, Wednesday, July 5th, is my birthday and I am 63 years old, wow! That went by fast! About 20 plus years ago, as I was learning that we each create our own reality, I made some decisions for myself. I decided my ‘family history’ of high blood pressure, diabetes, strokes, and heart attacks will not be my reality and would have no affect on me. I decided not to age and that I would take care of my own health, without doctors and all the expensive stuff that goes with that. I put it out there that whatever I would need to be youthful and healthy would come to me. Many who knew me laughed at all my supplements and the different way that I would eat and my desire to exercise. They did not understand that when my body got out of balance, I would just ask, ‘okay, what do I need’ and sure enough, something would show up or catch my eye and that would be the answer. According to some, the right thing to do was go to the doctor, but not me. It’s been 25 years since I have been in a physicians office. I think I’ve got this, it’s simple and easy……..I know alot of you have trouble with simple and easy.
A few years ago I was in my local grocery store. Those of you who know me, know I don’t get out much. I work from home and do some traveling, it’s a good life that I manifested! I look forward to going into town, do my hair, put on make-up and dress in something besides my favorite sweatpants. I was in front of the meat department, looking for the organic grass fed beef, when a gal from the meat department came over to me. She said, “I just want you to know you look absolutely great! You are so lucky to be so slim, tall and beautiful!” I thanked her for the compliment and said “This really isn’t luck, I exercise everyday and eat…….”, she interrupted and said “No you’re just lucky, born that way, I would never be able to look like that, you’re just lucky!” and she walked away. I thought of that interaction as I did my shopping. She did not want to know that exercise, eating right and a pair of 5.5 inch heels, would get her the results she seemed to envy me for. It seemed for her, and maybe for many of you, she just did not want the responsibility of having to do what it took to be the best she could be. For some, it’s easier to play victim and say those of us who do work at it, are just lucky.
I have learned much along this earthly journey, and I would like to share some of those thoughts with you……… I know, now, my way of doing things is different from most people. But, let me say, at 63, I am young, healthy, slim and my life is filled with love and joy….That is not luck. That is intent. That is my choice. That is loving myself, there is no luck involved. It takes effort to stay healthy and young. I do this because it’s fun, I love exercising, I love eating amazing organic food, I love the way I look and feel when I do all these things. I have made these choices, because they make me happy. Anyone of you can make any of these choices. That is what life is all about, choice……..
“The lesson of life is all about choice. You choose your life, your family, your friends, your difficulties, your opportunities. What you do with them is your choice. Suffer, flourish, succumb or overcome, it’s all up to you. What you need to be grateful for is that it is all your choice. You are not at the mercy of any power. Even the most powerful energy in the Universe insists that you choose to have that power work in your life…..”
8 Keys: A Special Delivery Message from the Angels
Choice, when you decide to change your life, perhaps you choose to be more abundant, or healthier, happier….the whole Universe supports what you do!! What you seek in your life, whatever brings you joy and happiness, is always met with an over whelming ‘YES’ from the Universe, always! You are supported in ways you can’t even imagine. Look again at my photo, this manifesting intention stuff really, really works. It is only your belief that it doesn’t, that keeps you from having everything you want
Here are a few more things I have learned along the way……..
‘Focus on yourself first’…….What do you really want? Where does your joy lie? This world tells us that happiness is fleeting and we are at the mercy of forces beyond our control.That may be your god, or spouse or parents or just your own limiting ego beliefs. But if you can go into your heart center and be honest with yourself while thinking ‘what is my joy?’, you will find the fear of opening up will dissipate, because the whole Universe supports and loves you…nothing will be different, until you believe you can have different!!
‘Do not force your will on any situations’…..whatever you may feel about a person or situation, if you feel you must force what you want to happen, you’re on the wrong path. I know it can be difficult because ego will tell you that you are right, especially if it’s your loved ones. But if you really love someone you will let go of your ego and allow that person to have their journey. Even if it means they fall flat on their face. Let them fail. It is not your job to save the world. That was a past life. In this go around, you hold the energy of love and allow each soul to learn their own lessons. The most powerful energy in the Universe is Love. When you surround someone with love, you are using the highest frequency available. So whatever the situation or person, surround them and it in Love. And for heaven sake, quit worrying. If there is something for you to do, you’ll be guided!!
‘When you don’t know what to do, do nothing!’…….You don’t need to be particularly psychic, even though each of us is born psychic, to know when something feels good. Ahhhh, it makes you smile. When something is not so good or feels negative, you get a feeling in the pit of your stomach, then you know to back away. Most of you can figure that out. It’s when you have no feelings, no clue what to do or what direction to go in……then you must do nothing. I know you don’t like that, you want to control things and make things happen. Knock it off. You’ve manifested what you want, and now you must let the Universe put synchronicity into motion. if you don’t know what to do now, you will very soon, and the path to what you want will be simple and easy. Trust me, it can be very inconvenient to jump ahead of divine timing.
‘Everything you focus on you get.’…….. Everything is energy. Your thoughts create your life. If you are not happy, if you believe your life sucks, you are right, it will suck. Whatever your reality is, whatever you believe to be true, is true. It is as simple as that. When I knew my life sucked, it did……when I chose to understand how the Universe worked, I changed my thoughts and my life changed to reflect all is well. Everything I ask for I get. Whatever I need shows up and my life is always filled with love.You see, I know the Universe has my back and I am unlimited. So what are you waiting for…….
‘It’s time to stop being offended’…….It seems many of you are just looking for reasons to be offended. What a waste of your precious energy. And you wonder why your life sucks, you wonder why things don’t go your way….geez! Look at the above paragraph. Misery, complaining, being offended is energy, a very low energy. A very low negative energy. As you self righteously condemn others for offending you, you open the door for move low negative energy into your life. So how’s that working for you???? Now it’s time to ‘focus on yourself’ bring in the love energy and take this lesson to heart…….
if you’re against pornography, then don’t watch it.
If you’re against contraception, don’t use it.
If you’re against abortion, don’t have one.
If you’re against Muslims, don’t become one.
If you’re against gay marriage, don’t have one.
If you’re against unions, don’t join one.
If you’re against universal health care, just keep your distance from doctors and hospitals.
If you’re against gay, lesbian, transgender, then feel free to limit your sexual interest to the 3 billion human beings of the opposite gender.
The 8 Keys, believe, trust, detach, love, humility, forgiveness, gratitude, connection, are the answer to everything. My book, 8 Keys: A Special Delivery Message from the Angels, is my life story and the simplest way to make the spiritual journey. It’s supposed to be simple and easy. We as humans make it all so complicated. When I was told, literally, I needed to write a book, I laughed. The usual ego doubts and interference came on full force. The process from those words to getting published is it’s own story. All I know is, the Angels, Source, Universe, whatever name you may have for the Love energy wrote this book.
That Energy responds to my hearts desire everyday. I have learned not to fear or worry. I know I am always watched over. I have learned how to Be. The first 63 years were so interesting……so now I am all for having fun. I am sure the next hundred will be awesome!!!!
