Practice being the love you wish to experience

Hello Friends, As I was meditating this morning on my favorite chapter of scripture in the bible, I received yet another insight about it and thought I'd share. (1 Corinthians 13) Practicing "love" first begins with loving ourselves because if we are all one, then what I do to myself I do to you, and what I do to you I do to myself. (Yes, I meant to write the sentence this way - just read it a few more times and let it sink in:) If I do not love and accept myself, show myself compassion and forgiveness, be [...]

Practice playing the What If game

Hello Friends, Let's add playing the "What If" game to our affirmations and afformations. Oh, no, no, no, we are not going to practice imagining the worst case scenario as people usually do. Instead, we are practicing imagining the best case scenario. Yes folks, we are flipping the script. What If... I am perfect just as I am? Why am I perfect just as I am? I AM perfect just as I am! What If... Everything is always working out for me? Why is everything always working out for me? Everything IS always working out for me! What If... What [...]

Practice changing your mind

Hello Friends, Let's continue on from last week. As you practice freeing your mind from outdated, dysfunctional or toxic thoughts, ideas and beliefs, it's very important to replace them immediately with those that will serve your highest good aka lead you to a more peaceful, joy-filled and fulfilling life experience. Try using affirmations as we've talked about before. Affirmations are positive statements about yourself or your circumstances that can help you challenge and overcome self-sabotaging and negative thoughts.

Practice freeing your mind

Hello Friends, I wanted to take a moment to remember our forefathers and the courage and sacrifice they made which led to us to being able to celebrate Independence Day every 4th of July. They wanted to be free from tyranny, so they changed their minds, followed their hearts, took action, and ta-da: America, land of the free and home of the brave, was born. They left us a superior example of how we can do this everyday in our own lives. Once you attain freedom in your mind from negative or oppressive beliefs, your outside circumstances will rearrange themselves to [...]

Practice letting it be

Hello Friends, I felt moved to once again remind you, and myself, about the futility of resisting the "what is" that disturbs our peace. If you can't change it then let it be and shift your attention onto something that pleases you instead. Remember to practice deep breathing to calm yourself and bring yourself into the present moment. Then say a prayer thanking Heaven for facilitating the solution or meditate on the picture of the desired outcome and practice feelings of joy. I know, I know, sometimes it feels as if things are moving slower than a snail, and we [...]

Practice affirming what you want

Hello Friends, As a follow up from last week, the other thing you can do to get out of a rut is... drum roll please... don't complain and don't explain! Instead, focus on your desires, think about them, talk about them with people who are supportive, do some research on them, remind yourself that you are enough and willing to do what it takes. Rather than moaning and groaning about what did or didn't happen, how hurt and wronged you were, and how it's not fair, ask yourself: What can I learn from this? Then turn your attention to what [...]

Accessing your peace during difficult times

Hello Friends, Often we find ourselves in circumstances that make us feel uncomfortable, frustrated, helpless, inadequate, etc. a.k.a. I can't stand this one more second; this is getting on my last good nerve; or I feel like I want to cry, scream and explode. Fret not my friends. All that's happening is that this particular situation is reminding you of a past event that made you feel the same way. Stop and take a few deep breaths and bring yourself back to the present moment. Really take a look at your surroundings, see and experience them fully. Remind yourself that [...]

Practicing resilience during change

Hello Friends, I'm baaack!!!  I am finally starting to feel settled in Las Vegas and ready to get back to work. It took quite a bit of work and a lot of letting go but the move went smoothly and the drive from NJ to NV was beautiful, and long. Now I can check "road trip" off my list. You can see pictures on my Instagram @mels2cents. This change, this "daring greatly" has stretched me and shown me how strong I really am. Change is not easy and sometimes its not pretty either, but the good news is that we are [...]
