I can't remember how many times I had both of my feet on the gas pedal and the brake pedal at the same time. I am going nowhere!! I wanted so badly to release the breaks, but I was so scared to do it. Today I release and let go, and I let a higher power take care of the problem. And before letting go and let 'God,' I also took action: I did everything I could to make my situation better and then gave my problems to the 'Universe' and waited to see what would happen. Almost always, things happened for my highest good. Getting out of my comfort zone, taking action and getting out of my way are some of the best strategies to move forward and create flow in life.
Yesterday I made a huge mistake and watched the news! How horrific I felt afterward! So much fear and I could only hear death and strain and more death! Wow. I don't watch the news, which keeps my energy aligned and gives me peace of mind. Fear should not be a channel to connect with others; it only creates prickly vibes. I wear a mask, keep a distance and stay home as much as I can. And I read the news from different countries. Some countries have a less fear-based approach to the news, which I prefer.
I redecorated my living room on Sunday, making me feel like I am in a different place! I can look out the window now, with a coffee or hot chocolate and be. I am sitting in stillness and I am listening to the outside while watching the lake. I can see Osprey's running for their prey and I see how much ice there is on the lake right now. So beautiful! Nature is my healing and my church. Try it out :)
Every morning is a new day. A new start in our lives with failures and successes from the past neatly packaged in our backpack. This day is new and fresh and there will never be exactly like this day again. The canvas is blank, where we can paint any pictures we desire.
Think of yourself as a painter or artist presented with a multitude of choices, feelings, and possibilities represented by colours and brushes that you pick from your palette. Some are light and clear others are colourful pastels. There are also dark and dingy colours in there. You can choose any colour you want with any size of a brush! You may create bold and brave strokes with your brush using bright colours today or focus on the darker, more gloomy colours. Whatever you do, you made a choice of what colours to use and what design to create. You are a creator and you choose how to experience your day - every day. You bring joy or sorrow into your life by the choices you make. Change the brush and pick another colour if you don’t like what you are creating. See yourself changing the brush and colour to something brighter and more joyful in your mind's eye. The power is in your hands.
