Everybody’s Plotting to Support Me

“I’ve always been the opposite of paranoid. I operate as if everyone is a part of a plot to enhance my well-being.”—Stan Dale

I have a super power and you might have it, too: I can read other people’s minds.  For example and just last night, my husband walked into the kitchen (where I was working) and headed straight to the refrigerator—without so much as a glance in my direction.

So, I read his mind. When he didn’t acknowledge me sitting in the room, my super power told me that my husband must have a problem with me. I thought to myself, what the heck’s his problem? And suddenly, I had a problem with him.

Never mind that he could’ve been really thirsty, my super powers don’t lie. I had to get to the bottom of it, so I went looking, only to find him in the next room playing with the children. When I walked in, he looked up at me, smiled and said, “Hey, babe.”

It turns out that I don’t have super powers after all! My husband never had a problem with me, and I got mad because I believed a negative story that my imagination told me!

Well, that misconstrued exchange happened with two people in the same room. Now just imagine what can happen in a world of email and social networking. Think about what you tell yourself when you don’t hear back from someone right away—only to realize that they’re only sitting somewhere else, minding their own business.

As it turns out, our thinking minds aren’t always working in our best interests. Sometimes our imaginations trick us with negative stories and predictions.  Have you ever wanted to ask someone something, but stopped yourself because you were sure the answer would be “no.”?

Well, I have officially decided to train my brain in a new direction. I’m taking a cue from Stan Dale’s quote above.  I have determined that there is a conspiracy afoot: the whole world is plotting to support me. You’re doing it right now—as you read this—you’re sending me positive thoughts and well wishes, I just know it! The next person that I ask for help is going to be tickled pink and bend over backwards to work with me. And then, people everywhere are going to start recommending my shop and promoting my blog!

This new conspiracy feels good! Now I can stop clenching to the idea that this all has to work out, because no brain of mine is telling me otherwise. I can relax and enjoy this time in my life. I can realize that I’m doing something that I love every day. I can recognize that I spring out of bed each morning because I can’t wait to get started. I can be grateful, instead of worried, because the world is out there working toward my good right now. So, thank you!

Join the conspiracy on Facebook :) And let’s start the same conspiracy for the good of you!

What’s Important to You Today?

I came across this question last night in reflection, and it reminded me to get back to the simple things that matter most. When I opened my journal, I landed on a page I wrote exactly two years ago with a visualization for success. As I was feeling particularly overrun by life last night, it was perfect timing!

I’m on the verge of another big change–as I was two years ago. At the time, we were about to move from Brussels, Belgium to Culpeper, Virginia and I wrote the visualization for six months into the future. It started with my relationships, covering how my husband, children, and even our old dog handled the transition and what they would come to find and love living back home in the United States. Then, it covered me: what I would accomplish, explore, and discover.

When we were overseas, my husband and I became convinced that we would have to move our family of 6 into a cramped townhouse in Northern Virginia because the cost of living here is so expensive. However, in my visualization, I covered housing next, stating that we were living in a spacious, single family home that had at least four bedrooms. The visualization covered our finances, and made clear that money was always available and never a concern. Finally, I covered extended family and friends, naming how they would receive us and visit often.

In all scenarios, that visualization, or something better, has manifested in my life. I never even realized it had all come into fruition until last night! Yesterday I was feeling overwhelmed, and I knew the best stress relief would be to do another six month visualization and highlight all the wonderful things that would unfold in the coming months. If you’re feeling stressed simply answer the following questions and create a visualization of your own:

In six months,
1. My relationships are … Here you want to describe how your primary relationships are doing. What are the people you care about most experiencing and achieving? Imagine them fulfilling their passions and discovering their best life.

2.  I am … what are you doing, learning, reading, enjoying? Describe all of that here. Are you living up to your potential? Are you fit and active? Do you feel excited about your life?

3. My home is … redecorated, remodeled, moved to another, more fitting location. If something’s not working in your environment, you imagine it better here.

4. My finances … Reach for abundance. Debt is paid down, financial freedom is on the horizon, and out of the blue, you realized another source of income you earn while doing something you love! Get creative here, and imagine yourself prospering at every turn.

5. Your extended family and friends … How do they receive you when they see you? How do you get along with your co-workers? How has your difficult family member become a little easier to get along with? Imagine all the people who make you feel really good and record how more experiences like that will be coming.

Wishing you all the best in love and life ♥

Spiritually Charged, Power Bead Bracelets and Jewelry at the Energy Shop!

Hellllloooo, little blog 🙂 it’s been awhile ♥ and we have some catching up to do.

Last year I published my book, The Rescue You Program, and when 2o1o hit I started this blog with full intentions of writing another. In fact, somewhere among my notebooks there’s one half of my next masterpiece written. I’ll soon be starting a search party for it.

It’s just that, you never know what life has in store for you. The Energy Shop came together for me, practically by itself, and it has taken over the second half of my year. I love that little shop, and I say thanks for the inspiration and talent to keep it running everyday. When I started, I bought a huge supply of white sage smudge sticks, thinking that was going to be the big seller. I figured, I love making jewelry, so I’ll list a few things with the smudge sticks–and maybe, just maybe, someone might buy some of my bracelets.

When all of the bracelets I listed sold out in the first week, I had to make more bracelets! And so it has developed and grown, and I have an amazing 800 and counting sales on Etsy with 100% positive feedback. I’m beyond ecstatic with my home-based business, and I still have a full supply of smudge sticks, if anybody’s interested 🙂

It’s been awhile since I’ve updated this blog, so today I’d like to feature a few of my favorite things from the shop.

 

Blue Chalcedony

 

Even after all this time,
The sun never says to the earth,
“You owe Me.”

Look what happens with A love like that,
It lights the Whole Sky. –Hafiz

This Blue Chalcedony Bracelet represents optimism and is said to bring acceptance of new situations. It opens the mind and improves perception. I love this bracelet for the New Year. Let’s Unleash the Possibilities in 2011!!

 

Colors of the 7 Chakras Bracelet

 

This Colors of the 7 Chakras Bracelet is a customer favorite.  For the Crown Chakra, I’ve used loving Alexandrite. For the 3rd Eye Chakra, spiritually-aware Amethyst. For the Throat Chakra, you have transformational Blue Agate and for the Heart Chakra, protective Green Jade. For the Solar Plexus I used joyful Yellow Topaz. For the Sacral Chakra, cleansing Amber. And finally, for the Base Chakra, I used passionate Red Jade. Combine these stones and these colors for a true alignment.

 

Gemstone Tree of Ambition

 

If you’re not into jewelry, you can use your Feng Shui 9-Square Bagua to position the gemstones in the ideal location of your home or office. This Tree of Ambition is made of Blue Goldstone, an uplifting motivator. And, if you haven’t noticed . . .

The Energy Shop is now organized by intention!  You can find all the items you’re looking for to Improve your Focus and Meditation, Honor your Spirituality and Faith, Channel Healing and Calming energies, Increase Love and Friendship in your Life, Enhance forces of Positivity and Protection, Maintain Health and Wellness, and/or Attract Wealth and Success.

Whatever your best intentions, I wish you a WoNdeRfuL Holiday Season and an abundance of good fortune for the New Year. Until next time, ♥
