My heart sings today as I got my organic turkey without ordering, I am a bit unprepared at times. Things always work out yet in what appears through a chaotic rhythm. Chaos has order in it as you sit looking long enough. All chaos rebirths to order at some point. I was grateful that my chaotic rhythm synced up to have turkey! It made me shine!
I realized, as most with this "cup half full" attitude, I celebrate the simple things. We gear ourselves up at the smallest of gifts of life going well. Many often save celebration for the big things yet the small ones can ride you through each day. Having an attitude of gratitude and celebration helps me deal with all the mess of life. Life is messy regardless. To have this openness to look for the right in the small, finds a joy spark you can ride.
In the midst of great crisis, something inside of me can see joy. I can radar in on the good that occurs. I was at the grocery store and asked if there was a space for cards. It involved getting manager, blah blah so I just told the girl next time. She loved my card about the podcast and water. She asked to keep it! Another wave of joy came upon me for a good interaction.
My view of the mountains can do it, my favorite songs on the radio, the kindness others offer in a smile, the happy neighbor wave, even my flinging of things that shatter brings me to giggle. We have to reset our radar especially with all the news. No looking for signs of the scary, the fearful and bad. We need to step away and look for the simple goodness of daily events.
I inspire you this holiday to really revel in the simple things. Our lives have been simplified and there is goodness in that. Less of everything has been nice. Less rat race, more true interaction and savoring of what we have. Even reviewing what we want as times have changed. The joy of this simplicity you can ride and spread its deliciousness!
Yes I have many tough, hard, failing times in life too. Far more than I share. Yet my thankfulness for what turns out right supports me tremendously! Preserving the lesson makes the hard have purpose and that will eventually lead me back to gratitude. Really work this word. We all know this. Yet when we interact, create energy and really sink into this wave, life changes immediately. It is a most powerful tool and why we have a day to celebrate!
Have a blessing filled Thanksgiving!

This fall has really been a review of what do I need. We have such news and ideas of fear, lack and uncertainty. In a time as no other, I think to be clear on what I need to feel safe, express myself fully and finding simple joy is paramount!
We all need the security of money. The essence of this really is a security that all will end well and in our favor. Feeling that I have what I need each day to take care of myself in whatever way seems appropriate. The essence of security is that we have enough to thrive. Many at this time are scrambling to manage this with all the shifts. I, too, finding innovative ways to attract what I need. I remind myself the within /without law. If I feel the essence of being supported, taken care of by the world and my own activities working, I can then draw in the opportunities outside myself.
I learned when getting my Masters in Spiritual Science, about feeling the essence of the things you desire. Not thinking them but feeling the accomplishment, like an athlete who visualizes the win. Win in your fantasies! So we conjure the feelings of being content, supported, safe, secure, creative, innovative, loving and on and on. We see our NEEDS getting fulfilled. In fact we are celebrating it.
First you decide what you need. Then feel the essence of it for a practice and watch is come to you. It doesn't just take a second a day. This is a practice in creating the joy of life you want. I have alarms that reset to gratitude and visualization for a few minutes 6 times a day. I stop what is happening if I can, and feel this essence of whatever I am wanting. It naturally turns to gratitude I noticed. Very powerful way to bring in what you desire if it yours to be had.
If we all really refined what we need and the feeling that gives us with our imagination rather than using it for all the doubtful things we envision or worries, we could shift our world. We have spent our lives finding ways to get what we need and so far it has worked. If it shifts or crazy things come along, we adjust and keep going. So far we have made it. We are still alive and breathing. We have successfully weathered some storms. The key I believe is in knowing what you need to be safe, secure and comfortable to be yourself. It sounds simple yet you must keep answering this question through out life.
With the answer and the visualization or feeling of having it sprinkled through your day, you practice that vibration in your body. Most of us don't know what or how that feels. Many have never felt safe in their life. So it is not a one and done deal. It is a journey of embodying what you say you want. Give time to whatever process comes up as you do this and continuing with it. This has been an anchor for me through this time. I am not always so sure what that is being in a new place and creating innovatively. I keep remembering what I want and adjusting it to what I need and what is happening. I make certain I FEEL deeply what the essence, the essential nature of that need is!!
Powerful Practice to try daily!
"Win in Your Fantasies!" JR
I often get reprimanded or criticized for my youthful, childlike nature. I am messy or unordered. I don't do things "right" or efficiently. I have my own topsy survey way to do them. I try new things and find doing things new and fresh are fun and make life more alive. However, to a well ordered, adult as I have been told, I am not grown up in my thinking. I think this is one of my favorite qualities about myself. I love the curious, youthful, wide eyed, innocent way I look at things. I have a very smart side and a very flakey or childlike side for certain.
I find especially now, our youthful whimsical creative way needs to lead us so we can have joy as we do life and to lighten up the field. People feel isolated, annoyed, angry, scared, uncertain and filled with the adult like thinking. I am not saying being alert to what is really going on and having a sense a safety is not foremost. It just doesn't need to be so serious. When I can step away from my problems or issues and see them with curiousity and silliness, it is not so bad, I can find a creative way to walk through it. It is like a brilliance comes from that innocent giggle about it all. Being so lost or so fucked, you have to giggle. Then lightness comes in. Often then so do directions to go.
As we get old it is natural to get more rigid. Arthritis is a disease of criticism in Louse Hays work. In
Tai Chi, it is considered a disease of not moving fluidly thus their exercise is in flow and feeling that, so rigidity is softened. You go, "Oh, this is what flow is like and it is not locked up in opinion and stiff thinking." Getting older we think we know more and indeed we do. We don't have the answers though any more than we did before. We just know to not be so serious, all things pass, calmness and grounding is important. We move slower when we don't know as when we are young we move and move and move. Or at least I did. With age you realize pause is effective.
Now in a new strange world, the ideas of curiosity and wide eyed wonder is a good approach. We know it will all work out somehow. There will be a solution at some point and life is new right now and will be then. We are all more alert and awakened. We are more tuned into our inner self. Maybe that is what it is all about. An awakening of the youthful look at the world that says "Oh my. What can we do to make this better for everyone?" That is expansive and opening. It is good to look to see how we and all can work together at a greater way. Rather than take sides on issues, be open to a third way of listening compassion. Of "Oh well. We don't see eye to eye so lets get to a place where we do." There can always be commonality, we all are breathing if that is the only connect, it is there we do.
To me that was how I felt in youth. I thought the older people didn't get it. I wanted to be part of a better world. In my 20s I was part of a charity for many years and loved that I was making a difference. It felt good to use my energy toward a purpose that helped the world. I did it as an organic grower, a green business and in sharing beauty and health with woman and even water now. I keep looking for a way to add into the world toward a better place. Big or small, it doesn't matter. Joy and participation in giggling and enjoying something is part of lifting the planet.
So I am all for this youthful way. Even if it is annoying with all that comes with it, as I spill things, I drop things, I lose things yet in a bind I have all that is needed. It is an odd way that my character adds to the world. Often teaching others that the coffee maker going all over the counter because I didn't have the lid right isn't the end of the world. I giggling and yes bummed that my coffee will be weak, clean it up and spin it that the counter could of been deep cleaned since it hasn't got its attention lately. The young girl of me that isn't refined or graceful, reminds me nothing is so bad.
Realize that many of us are youth in adult bodies. I would say all are. Especially with survival all around our childlike fears are activated. They too have an innocence as they find their way with their conditions. We all have this youthful, hopeful, curious way at life. I think we are trained to bury it in away as to be more refined as a mature adult. I never quite got it. Maybe others haven't either and the giggle and fun are part of their world often, daily and even hourly. Accepting the fucked up things of life and moving on and through and hopefully together with others is just what is happening.
Honor the youthfulness of yourself and all adults. We don't know any more about this whole mess than we would of before. It is all new, we are part of creating it by our energy so curiously look how to place your energy into all things. We have this reset moment to re-emerge into a strange world with a updated view. We have awakened out of our way that was so we can create a new way. Rather than this or that, we get to a third creative way like a baby of both points of view to a blended one. Youthfulness will help this. Forgetting you know it all and be open in curiousity. This is how this can be changed.
Not all will appreciate you but you will add fun, happy, innocent energy into the world and we all need more of this!
As always, it is important for woman to gather! We fuel when we gather. A magic happens that supports us like no other group. It just is. There is a very important connection that we must cultivate consistently in our lives with each other. We are part of a web that existed before us and will exist long after us between woman. It creates a magic, a youthful charm for us so I encourage this as a huge health practice!!
There are many ways to create tribe with woman. The one I am talking of is the deeper connection we have as woman. The feminine way that in most of the history of the planet, we hung together with the children. We played ands supported each other to nourish as part of our lifestyle.
I recently was asked to start a circle of woman. They were much younger than I, so I felt honored to support them to build a group to empower with. We had our first gather last month at a beautiful farm, Willow Farm in their DoJo for Zen practice. We had so much fun! I forgot the joy I learned from may feminine leaders on the power of woman together. I encouraged all who attended to consider running a circle with their wisdom. I inspired some play with our intuition. We began a magical journey together.
A new friend out here, Brenda Rigley, just published a book called Lady and the Tribe. It is an awesome book on friendship. She goes into some fun detail the dynamics of woman friends. All an inspiration to remind us how powerful we are together. She has a goal to create 1000 new woman tribes. It is the time of Sacred Femininity! I couldn't be more delighted!
So at this odd time in the world, reclaim your power of femininity by gathering with other woman in whatever capacity feels good. We need each other. We run most all things in the world, behind the scenes of course!!. We need to be strong, inspired and supported as this new way of living unfolds. We are the network of support that is just there. Use it. Encourage it. Participate in it. Cultivate woman gathers. It is powerful stuff for us.
IN the end whether we dance, sew, knit, do ritual, sell Silpada jewelry, drink wine, it doesn't matter. That we have a deeper connect, honor our desire for communication and giggle as girls that empowers us. More like a 13 year old slumber party silly that really creates our youthful glow. When that energy is about, you know the Goddess in us is present!
Participate if you can ladies! It is an elixir par excellent!
It has been a harrowing world in many ways. We are ourselves, or surrounded by others, in challenge and the whole health crisis has us disconnected in weird ways. I have found keeping my opinions to myself unless asked is a good strategy currently. Some are born to stand up and hold for a cause and I thank them. I am not one. I like to bring awareness to expanded ways to see things yet in these times none of us as open as before. Being misunderstood, hitting triggers of others, even making choices on what is the right information is different these days.
As I am in a new town with few established connections, I find it more important to observe what is going on. I notice how people feel, what they consider right and stay in the background. I was far more visible in PA. than I am here. I find it to be a good thing as well as an updated version of me. It pays to switch up how you are approaching the world. My mouth and ideas have gotten me in trouble throughout my life. I know I would do well to talk less and listen more. Connection and finding commonality rather than difference important right now!
I do find that the same few things stand the test of all conditions. One is being kind. Offering smiles and simple support through out the day to others known and unknown. Kindness is a great vibe to add to a world in tension. It supports me to feel safe and produces that in others around us. Safety very important to us all. Things feel less safe these days so add into the field of kindness and safety.
I find playing in nature more than ever as a key to health and feeling good. We don't have to worry as much about the "health" conditions and rules of establishments as we inhale clean air. Beautiful colors, changing seasons, fires, pumpkins, fall beauty is just intoxicating. This keeps me feeling passionate and healthy. We find all melts when we are in beauty! Stimulating my senses and enjoying the simple pleasures of nature are inspiring me to hopefullness.
Keep all your connections close. Being in touch with your peps helps no matter how far away they are. I am blessed with angels across the country that reach out to me to see how I am doing. I do the same. It is the wonder of zoom, the phone, face time, whatever you want to use. This connection to a tribe is important when strife is about. Check ins, chats, going out for coffee or walks, all these things remind us that life is good and we are safe and loved.
Move your body to clear out emotions, yours and others. I have not been so active as I was when I was in PA. I had to recover from some adrenal burnout and I have allowed my body to recover. This has been a stretch for me! These days I feel the inspiration to move. My body wants to detox, move the energy, let go of pent up emotions and stress/anxiety energy. Movement is the best way to reset that we often forget. I am not one who does "workouts" but I like to dance, hike, bike, move. I think with the tension high in the world, more movement makes us all feel better. Find ways to feel good in your body! Ways that you feel good are key to clear out energy!
Savoring what good is about! I do find myself really reveling in the simplest of things. The sun shining, the leaves slowly turning, the delicious stew I made. So many small things. A kangen sale. A fun game of pickle ball. Bringing out my favorite winter stuff. Giving away clothes to others as I clear. Sitting quietly with a cup of tea. Always looking for a celebration to have! Very key these days for life is good on many levels if you seek it.
Lastly, I give myself more space than ever. I take my time, listen to my body, rest more and find less intensity nets greater results. I am less reactionary. This helps us all for reaction is such an easy response especially when seems there are sides to every issue. I bite my tounge more and step away. I offer what I can but don't push and dominate like I used too. It doesn't seem like the time to fly forward with great fervor. Yes, get your things done and be dedicated to excellence. Don't push as the old paradigm. It is more of a slow magnetism!
May you find smarter strategies for yourself these days. It is a changing world and the tension is high. We need leaders in collaboration and connecting together. A tall order yet one that only brings in change that is awaiting to come in. It is like a tower moment yet we can add connection, kindness, joy to support a new world where different ideas are welcome to coexist together.
Happy Fall to us all!!
I am in a continual learning about relationships! So far across the country, I am creating new connections and friends constantly. My tribes from the internet are so helpful to me, my peps of life that help me stay connected and cared for. In a new spot, I have had to reach out in all ways to meet people and commune.
It has been interesting for me. It is far different than people who know of or kind of know you or have a connect to someone you know. Out here, all is open and there are no references. I have had to expand in all ways. Relationship to new land, new people, myself in a new way and potential lovers as well. Completion came to my latest romance. It was abrupt. I call all things perfect timing. It didn't feel perfect to end or turn out that way but it did. I take lessons of myself from it and learn how to be better in connection. I reflect on what I was told and how it all went.
Importantly, as a newbie to it all here, there is a time of synchronizing myself to this new world. It takes a lot of my personal energy to feel a foundation is being built. I believe I am caught up in that self or selfishness of creating my world. I don't have as much time to notice and interact wholeheartedly with another in the way many settled can. It is a good thing for me to know. I don't have as much energy for a fulltime relationship as others. It takes a real commitment to learn of your partner and how to interact and bring in happiness. I am not so well tuned into another as I think was necessary. That is a good learning. In not offering my all to that, I am neglecting a key part of relationship. At this moment, building my foundation more important to me I now see.
Realize how much you can give to any relationship. Whether to yourself, another, a project. I think commitment is important. I am not so grounded in myself and new world to offer the commitment that was desired. That created the idea that I am selfish or self centered, not attentive to him and what he needed. I don't want another to feel that way with me! We must participate in both receiving and giving. Know what commitment is needed and works.
I also consider that whatever was going on, my true being wasn't expressed apparently. I was called a taker, selfish, not a go getter, aloof to his feelings, over talking him and not giving space to name a few. I also got the magical world is not real chat. I take this all very seriously. They are not fine traits. I dont want to play that role. For whatever reason, our chemistry didn't show my truth empathic, compassionate nature or high vibe energy. He even said I complained a lot. All unusual things for me to hear. I see we were not a mix then for who wants that kind of partner! Yikes!
I look at myself and see where there is truth to this in my life. I think this is key. Not to take another's experience of us and make it a problem but know the mix wasn't working for him. That is just a preference thing. It makes neither wrong or right. I was not the ball of joy and magic I wanted to be in that situation and hindered his comfort. Ironically, I didn't see it as so bad. That is where my fantasy lies. This all good learning and noticing. I am more self centered at this building place and that is ok.
I have been in many relationships on many levels and have often found great common group with others where you would think there was none. This is a case where I thought there was more but there wasn't. These things happen in relationship and you trust that for yourself or another, what happens is ok. It is meant to be. All relationships are reflections with another. I can thank him for the reflection and interaction and realize where I am not supporting in the best way. This is perfect to learn and not be critical towards myself or him. Just learning of communion and non communion.
I think we all can look at relationships and learn together in less judgement. Less right or wrong perspective but more as a blend or not. He is not wrong in his desires as I am not wrong in my ways. We just don't blend in a way that fueled his mind, body and spirit or mine. A non mix. That is perfect. We find that in relation to many things and it is our choice to speak up and move on. I honor that and him. I am thankful for all the fun, giggle and learning I had. I feel blessed. I feel thankful that he was truthful about how he saw me so I didn't have to try to meld into something. I just wasn't right for him. I honor that he knew that. After all I am a handful of sorts!
I am morphing with the environment and creating all anew. I am not doing it all perfectly either. This is always what is happening. We are doing our best and relationship gives us a meter to see what we offer. Seems I should stick to myself for a minute and set up my foundation a bit more. Then I can offer more to another. I am good with that. I will however miss the fun as I miss so many relations to things lost along the way. It is good to savor and remember the blessings.
Then on we go! To find others or things that we blend with better! More forward and be grateful for a new moment!
These times have very wild implications beyond what I have ever lived. I have always been one to taut prevention, living with the earth, realizing we are creatures of it and investigating old and new ways of health and beauty. I have been an advocate for organic, local and green living to support our communities as well as our well being. Connection to others important as is the joy of living on the planet that I consider the Garden of Eden.
With the illness so prevalent, the different ways to keep health optimal, the restrictions being imposed, I find the things I have always shared more important than ever. I became organic with flowers and food, supported local farms and businesses my whole life, tried to keep my waste to the least and use things with consciousness. Today as things stand, knowing the local food producers and the local healers is important for health and beauty. Living sustainably for health and resources seems smart. Prevention the name of the game! I am not in favor of many of the latest health and wellness claims so I am sharing the ways I think are the best, easy health and happiness options. Despite current conditions I am thriving and want to share ideas of how.
Purchase from local farms and food sources where you can. If we could shift our food distribution to more local sources , less concern for gas, shipping, availability, cyber attacks, all this could support us to still get the necessities. Yes, it is a high goal but moving toward that is a good choice. The food is fresher, healthier and you support your community to have a closer loop. I know out here there are moves in farming and permaculture that in the future could support a more closed loop society as far as food and healing elixirs is concerned. Eating by the seasons is healthful for us and small choices to make these things work in the right direction can help the world in the future so I advocate such. You feel good as well seeing the farms about that you actually get your food from.
Sustainability seems important as well for if there are shifts in distribution, you want to know you have your supplies. That is why the Kangen water is a key to my life. I get the best drinking water no matter what comes out of the tap. Filters and my ionizer create the best molecular hydrogen water that is the number one anti-oxident today. Simply hydrating with the right stuff goes a long way to health and longevity. Acidic bodies are shifted with ionized water as are many health ails all listed in study after study on pub med. Look up ERW, Electrically Reduced Water or Molecular Hydrogen water there.
Chemical free living is another thing that I support. So many have allergies to food, chemicals, pollen in the air, there are so many more pollutants than when I grew up especially in food. Little bits of cancer causing agents in our lotions, laundry soap, personal care products all effect us over time. Long ago I learned personal care products are unregulated and filled with many unhealthy perservatives to be on shelves. Food has many antibiotics, gmo, unhealthy fat replacements, all take a toll on our bodies over the years. Buying local and not factory farming helps as does using safer products.
Our Kangen Water machine offers the most sustainable living I have encountered. I used to purchase safer products from the better grocery stores where they already weeded out high perservatives which worked. However, since I got the Kangen, I have replaced 95% of all personal care, cleaning and house hold products. I save so much money as I clean, do laundry, clear stains, wash veggies, remove makeup, support good teeth, softer skin, healed excema, heal cuts. burns, lost weight, the list is endless. 64 uses at least as we say for these different types of water. It is amazing and I don't run out of things for it is there in my kitchen.
All about me is chemical free. This supports immunity and the innate healing system we are all born with. Give it what it needs, support with healthy choices and your have simple health. Our 2.5pH Hypochlorous Acid is the best sanitizer that exists, 100x more powerful than bleach. Used in hospitals, dentists offices and nursing homes as safe and it is electric salt water. I can disinfect where ever I go with no chemicals. This is powerful especially now.
Go in nature and re-center! With the high stress of the news, riots, protests, illness, lockdown, masks, nature fires and floods, it is healthy to step away. I know of no better way than to go hike, paddle, swim, lay on the grass. We are creatures of nature and considered the animal kingdom. This step away from techno spaces is healing to us on the cellular level, emotional level and to calm the ramble brain. It also brings in our spiritual nature of gratitude and beauty just being outside, receiving of the world. Health and sustainability at its finest by just walking outside.
Stay connected to high vibe communities. What ever that means to you find them. Be in person, online, facetime, zoom, whatever it takes. This is your life line to have inspired, forward moving and thinking others around. I have many great free thinking communities that expand me, inspire me, lift me and create laughter and joy for me daily. This happy attitude is one of the best medicines. I don't subscribe to not being together or touching each other either. I get lots of health treatments of self care that keep me calm, clear and level in these times. Touch and connection a powerful tool in good living.
Work at things that give you joy! I changed my life out here in Colorado and I upgraded to loving all I do. I have always been on some mission to educate and inform and I still am. I investigate the healing arts, the expressive arts and elixirs that serve me to beauty and health and share that with others. It is vital that you love your work and many shifted that in the illness crisis of 2020. I love what I do and I inspire you to find ways to love what you do too. I support others to find this joy as well!
Blessings to us all as we ride through creating a new world out of some really crazy stuff going on. Joy is always around. Be a herald of it! Great love to you all!
I live in the magic of life! It is actually quite simple. You must develop the awareness too. I have issues that are a bit overwhelming at times. I am facing my triggers, out dated beliefs about life and managing crisis out of no where! Yet magic and happiness are attitudes toward life I cultivate through presence.
Blessed I have been to learn from Himalayan Masters and in a strong school of spirituality to give me tools to detach and redirect quickly. It is an awareness that takes practice, learning and expansion. Nothing ever works every time so we all keep learning new ways to adjust to a shifting world. We are on a moving planet so there is no static arrival or landing for very long. We ride the wave of joy when it is here and savor. We equally ride the wave of negativity too. The magic begins when you realize it is a ride. We don't hang at red lights or stop signs. We take the rest or revel in the joy. We know it shifts and keep going on the train.
Magic comes into life as we remember it is always moving. No matter what occurs usually, in 2 weeks you won't remember it much for you'll have more joy or strife that will take the stage. I set myself up knowing all is passing through and by. When you begin here, then a ride, a wave, a period of this or that is inevitable. Once that is your base remembrance, then it becomes how will you ride through?
One of my greatest keys is to find the beauty around me in all circumstances. That resets me into a good moment no matter what is happening. The other day I was feeling down and as I stepped out to my porch and there were 10 gardenia blooms! That surged me into a new state. Suddenly the world had blessing and intoxicating scent. I then reveled in that for as long as I could. All changed in that moment as I allowed the movement to pass into something else. That is how presence supports us to redirect. My mood elevated. Then the world looked differently. Things change through perspective not through the reality changing. Our way we address it changes.
As we learn this way of moving through, magic seems to come in. I find serendipity, synchronicity and coincidence occur when I am moving through things. The mind often wants to keep us in a loop. Not matter what is going on in real time, the mind is stuck at a stop sign creating tale upon tale. When we realize the way out of that is to find the beauty around you, the loop gets disrupted.
It happened to me again this morning. I was in a bit of fear or lack mentality as I drove to the chiropractor. I kept trying to shift on my way yet wasn't doing it completely although I was becoming more neutral. I got there and suddenly an old friend was outside the door. The joy of seeing him, the hug, quick chat and fullness he was feeling just jumped inside of me. I was no longer considering what I had been thinking or feeling all morning. I received of that blessing and suddenly lack had left. it was like a gift of reset beyond myself in magic. The whole small visit brought in so many others ideas, feelings and optimism. There I had allowed the movement to bring me to a new state. It changed me for the day.
I returned home and an opportunity to help another came in which felt empowering. I still have what issues where here in the morning but now I have a more open optimistic attitude and lack is no where to be found. I feel happy about both interactions, continue moving through my day present to what is before me and I am long past that stop sign of thinking.
This is the Magic of Life! Really seeing the beauty, which nature often offers in a moment. Letting that beauty do something inside of me, I take the moment to receive it...... Then the movement, the energy flows you forward on to the next. I allow it to. I don't allow my mind to redirect back. If it does, I try it again and again. The magic will come in and work with you if you look for it. It is the path that brings me into great joy most days even in bad scenes.
I offer this as a way to support you to embody the magic. Embody means not in the mind which is where the red light and stop signs are. You are moving and experiencing all around you from the body and often the mind is not aware as it is in its story. The magic is in the body perception and the letting go of the mind. This easily brings you to new ways and magical happenings. The world is here to support you to become your best! You have to look, be aware, pay attention and know your mind is just a tool and perspective. There are many ways to see and do things. As we say, There are many ways to do the dishes. Open to the world around you! Don't hold onto negativity too long.
This brings is the Magic of Life!

When I randomly heard this word, I think from the Mind Valley owner, Vishen Lakhiani. I was just over the top! I loved it! A blissipline! Dedicated to finding bliss, being bliss, sharing bliss! This was so up my ally! I love words and the vibe of energy they give me and this is a keeper!
Imagine if you had to blissipline rather than discipline?? This was a great shift of both words that I will use to inspire myself! It just changes everything to me! I think words have such power! We interviewed a Story Worker, Sammi, @sammisaysjump, who shared the power of words with us. It was a beautiful remember. This story of blissipline is far more beautiful than discipline for me. Making that my north just feels joyous, right and fun!
Instead of working out with discipline imagine if you worked to find bliss as you moved your body to health? What a different joy and inspiration we would have in physical movement! Imagine if you had blissipline with work? You would create with work and joy as one. Really enjoy your work! Imagine if you had blissipline with your relationships? Making sure that you connected in love and caring. All your relationships supported you forward. Imagine blissipline in all your day? A plan to find bliss and joy in all you engage in? Just delicious! Imagine Blissipline with yourself? You commit to having bliss toward you and all you do!
As I moved to Colorado, I had an opportunity to start over in a new state! I decided an upgrade in all things was to be and so I proceeded. I didn't want to work too much but still make money to have a balanced , luxurious life. I wanted to be sure I had down time, nature time, movement time, connection time, work time and service time. I have accomplished all these by using blissipline! If I get stressed or tripped out, I stop and harbor in. If bliss starts fading, I take the time to find it again. This is the rest that is productive! It has supported me in great ways .
Micro changes is how we add new habits and switch up our programs. This discipline of bliss is an easy micro change that switches things tremendously. I like practical, powerful, easy shifts that can really adjust life to newness and success. Here is one. I hope you all find as good a shift in it as I do!
Committed to BLISSIPLINE! Yep, that's me!

I wish I knew when I was younger that self care was survival! To take care of yourself, needs and desires first, the rule of vitality and longevity among other health benefits. To feel nourished, cared for, supported, beautiful, high vibe, begins with fulfilling your needs to feel safe.
Whatever that is to you, you must provide it for yourself. Others can back you up and support you, but safety is different to us all. Our latest podcast with a girl in recovery from brain injury. hit the nail on the head. Those in chronic pain and all of us, need to feel safe and self sufficient in some way. Know that we care for ourselves by seeking ways to it. Not in monetary terms, but it could include that for we are all different. We know that money guarantees nothing so it is the deeper essence. The security that we can give ourselves what we need. We put ourselves in a safe situation and from there we can flourish. It is survival to feel you can manage what comes.
I do a lot for myself now that I am older and have time too. When I was younger, I was so busy doing that I exhausted myself and wondered how to not be so worn out? The ticket is do less and do what you like. There is always a few things we don't enjoy but safety is the power to be in jobs, neighborhoods, friends, lovers that we like and feel good around. That is our only task. Do the things that make you feel good. Our training told us to do all these other things. Some that make you feel good but many that do not and are "said" this must be done to be ....... blah blah.
My hope for this next generation is that they do take time to understand themselves which takes down time. The pace must be different. You can get the same amount of things done at a slower more focused space. The world doesn't inspire that smell the roses but indeed that is the ticket to energy management and completion of things. Work smart as we call it. We have balance and joy as we do work and hardship. The hardship comes of life and we can be directed enough to balance that with things we love.
I guess that is the wisdom of the late fifties. We are on the back side and do have more time to care for ourselves. We should teach it to teens so they know the law of balance and that they safely create that for themselves. Balance of good and bad, happy and sad, gentle and tough, yin/yang, whatever poles you want to use can be mastered by going for balance so you can rest and create again.
Yes I do a lot for self care now and find it is the right use of money. Massages, facials, chiro and rest is key. These all create rest and rejuvenation. At other times it was other things that inspired oxytocin. We seem not to have time when we are younger yet I remember when we played we had the feeling of rejuvenation. Our culture and lives need to inspire it. It is a wonderful life! You must take moments to enjoy it, savor and rest in it and hold the vibe. It is the elixir to creativity and all other things. It is more valuable than clothes, furniture, art, money, all of it.
Covid gave us all time to balance. We got a moment to realize we like lazy here and there. It is good for our mind, body and soul. Taking care of us, allowing an exhale feels good and allows us to reset and get back in the game. We need to place more value on it rather than considering it selfish and luxurious. We are animals and part of the cycles on this planet. Rest at night and rest when you have worn yourself out is just the right way to operate in health. Knowing what we need and then providing it for ourselves by being or asking another for whatever we need. Learning this oxytocin space of life. My mentor Maria would say, Make love to everything as you move through life.
I am glad I am learning this now and hope to share it with those younger. It is the ticket to less aging, less panic and less illness. Find your safety and then use it as the gift it is. Cultivate feeling safe in the simplest ways for yourself. Feed yourself well, enjoy eating. Move in ways that your body loves and feels good at. Go to bed and really shut down so you can rejuvenate for the next day. Get up and start with filling yourself with whatever could bring in a good day. You know what you need so consider it mandatory and make it be.
Taking care of yourself is the way to survive and feel strong in this world. Cultivate a life that inspires and it will draw you in on the wave. You have to take time to be aware of what that is as it changes. Drop the story of the world for you can see no straight paths exist that work 100% to get some perfect life. This is a creative endeavor where error, crisis, surprise and magic happen throughout. Your never sure what comes next but your can begin each day feeling safe and filled by yourself.
By the ways that work for you. Because you deserve the best life you can dream and you begin with yourself feeling good and capable!
