Fear… Turning it Positive

The Rabbit

A rabbit came to me the other day and has stuck with me until I would write about him.  I was leaving for work one morning and there he was… sitting under our hauling trailer.  I could feel the fear coming off of him and I instantly started talking to him telling him that he’s ok and that I wouldn’t hurt him.  He seemed to be frozen so I headed up to my car and left.  That night, when I got home, he was in the same exact spot!  LOL  Now I know he had to have moved but it was strange that he was in that same exact spot.  So… when an animal comes into our life like that, that isn’t a normal occurrence we have, well I have to stop and take notice.  What is Rabbit’s Energy trying to tell me.

The first thing that I noticed from this rabbit was the amount of fearful energy he was exuding.  It was coming off him in waves.  So I begin to wonder… am I exuding fear?  Am I afraid of something?  Well… to be honest… yes.  We’re all afraid of something.  Sometimes it’s a crippling fear.  Fear can be about so many different things and sometimes we may not even be aware of it because we’ve had a particular focus in our minds that we’ve just gotten used to it.  So let’s dig a little and see if we can figure out where this fear is coming from.

First of all, let’s pin point our obvious fears.  Some typical fears are of bugs, certain types of animals and certain types of activities like flying for instance.  Now let’s dig a little deeper.  Stop and listen to your mind for a minute.  Sit back and just listen to the thoughts running through your head.  This may take a little bit if you’re not used to paying attention to them.  Sometimes… we say very negative things about ourselves and we don’t even realize we’re doing it.  So let’s work on an example.  You’re at work and about to attend a meeting where you need to pitch an idea that will change procedures for your department as well as a couple of others.  This idea, for some, will instantly put up a red flag because they are afraid of speaking in large groups but let’s sit and think about that for a minute… what kind of thoughts run through your mind.  Do they resemble “No one is going to listen to you so I don’t even know why you’re trying.”  “Who are you to suggest such things?”  “You look terrible so no one will want to even look at you.”  “Why should I have to do this… my boss should be doing it.”  These are very harsh and make me cringe even writing them but it wasn’t too long ago that the thoughts running through my head said those very same things.  These types of thoughts don’t only create fears but they also create strong negative energy that sound us and make us physically ill.  Just look around you sometime and pay attention to people as you pass by.  Do they look sad and as if they are beaten up emotionally?  That’s probably because they have these thoughts constantly going through they heads.  Such a sad thing.  But!  We can change that!  Let’s find out how.

How to battle those negative voices in your head
The more and more we say these negative things to ourselves the more we fear things and situations.  So how do we turn that around?  By paying attention to our negative thoughts and turning them around to make them positive.  Let’s try this out with our examples above.  First example: “No one is going to listen to you so I don’t even know why you’re trying.”  Let’s change this to say… “Everyone will listen to me and like my ideas.”  And physically smile when you say it!  You may get resistance.  I know… sounds strange doesn’t it but we’ve conditioned our minds to think negatively so it will try to stay negative.  Just keep trying and eventually those negatives will turn into positives and I guarantee you it will affect you in ways you never could have imagined.  It turned my whole life around.  Let’s try another example.  “Who are you to suggest such things?”  Some people literally feel they have nothing positive to contribute because they feel they are nobodies.  That is so untrue!  We all have something to contribute in this world.  So… let’s turn that into a positive.  “I am an amazing person who has great ideas that people want to hear.”  Don’t forget to smile.  The more you say it, the more you lift your spirits.  Last example and this one, I believe, is most important.  “You look terrible so no one will want to even look at you.”  This one breaks my heart.  I struggled with this one for a long time and you would not believe how many other people feel this every day.  So let’s turn this one around!  This one requires you to stand in front of a mirror.  I know, it’s hard.  Some of you hate the mirror and barely even look in one but we’re going to do this.  Stand in front of a mirror and say these words out loud… “You are beautiful!”  “You are amazing!”  “You are intelligent!”  “Everyone loves you!”  “I Love You!”  Some of you may begin to cry.  I did.  I got teary eyed typing this out because I remember how hard this was for me.  If you don’t that’s ok too.  If you start crying and you can’t talk… then cry it out and start again.  You see, our society teaches us, and sometimes our families, that if we are not the perfect look then we are ugly and not worthy of anything in life.  This is where our fears stem from.  We need to change that and once we do we will begin to feel worthy and have positive thoughts and then send positive energy out into the world.  That’s what changes the world our own positive energy.  The more we put out there the more everyone feels.

It’s funny how one little rabbit brought all this out.  I had no idea where he would take me writing this today and now that I look back at this post I can’t help but love it.  Thank you Rabbit for making me sit down and send this message out to the world.

Love and Light to you Always!

Pick a Card – 4-23-17 ~ Reveal at the Bottom

Pick a Card 4-23-17

Pick a Card!

I will reveal the cards later tonight.

The Reveal is in!

Pick a Card Reveal 4-23-17

Left Card:  Throat Chakra
“I speak my truth and encourage others to speak theirs”
The Throat Chakra is linked to sound, communication, and self-expression.  Its name is Vishuddha and means ‘purification’.  The color associated with it is blue and it is situated at the center base of the neck.  This card is a reminder to engage your heart and mind before speaking.  Your words have great power over your own life as well as the lives of others.

Middle Card:  Sun Goddess
“I celebrate each sunrise and recognize the healing energies of the sun.”
Since the beginning of time, the sun has shone its vibrant, life-giving energy on the Earth.  Acknowledge the vital part the sun plays in the Universe.  Greet the sun with gratitude each morning and give thanks for its warmth and energy.  If you spend most of your day indoors, start putting aside time daily to sit or walk in the sunlight making sure you protect from the harsher rays of the sun.

Right Card:  Crystal Ascension
“I am attuned to the universal wisdom and energy of the crystal kingdom.”
You are being asked to bring crystals and minerals into your personal environment.  Your current environment contains too much artificial energy from material possessions, cell phones, computers and microwaves which causes an imbalance in both your body’s energy field as well as the energy within and around your home and work-space.  Crystals contain the earth’s natural energy fields as well as stored wisdom, which they have accumulated through the centuries of being on this planet.  Intuitively select one or more crystals to carry with you or wear at all times and others to place around your home and work-space.

If you would like please share any comments on your results!  🙂

Embrace the Change

embrace-change-31Embrace Change
Conscious Spirit Oracle Deck by Kim Dreyer
Kim Dreyer’s Website

I move easily and confidently through the changes in my life.”

               “We often become complacent in our lives and resist or are fearful of change.  But change brings new opportunities, friendships, knowledge, and experiences.  This card is reminding you that all things in life change: the seasons, your body, and situations.  By learning to embrace the changes that present themselves in your life and seeking out the positive within these changes, you will realize that change can be exciting.  If you constantly resist change your life will stagnate and you will have little joy and may begin to feel that your life is meaningless.  The Universe presents new opportunities in your life in order for you to grow and fulfill your soul’s purpose.  When change does occur, allow yourself to flow smoothly and easily with it.  Do not force nor resist it.  Divine timing will allow the transitions you need to go through in your life to occur in the correct sequence and at the correct time.  Trust that all will occur when and how it is meant to.”

Kim says it beautifully… embrace the change.  Sometimes change can be so very difficult.  We grasp on to what we know, sometimes not realizing we are holding others back from what their soul needs.  Being a mom I find myself doing that more and more thinking I am protecting my babies.  Well… they aren’t babies anymore mom!  It’s time to let change happen even though every inch of me is screaming… “NO!  It’s your job to protect them!”  Gosh this is so hard but I can’t be the protector anymore.  I have to let my baby birds fly.

So fly baby birds and know that your over-protective mom is always here, ever supporting you, ALWAYS proud of you.  I love you so very much.  It’s time and I realize that now.  No more holding you back.

Love & Light Always

Always your loving Mom.

The Akashic Records… What are they and what’s in them?

300px-Akashic-RecordsAkashic Records
What are they and what is stored within them?
Researched and Written by Carol Gallegos ~ August 5, 2015

The above question, as well as many others, come up when I ponder the idea. How many lives, if you believe in past lives, are stored in these records? All of them? What if this is my first life as a human and I’ve lived many as another type of being… are those stored there too? How can I access them?  Once I have access, how do I know they are mine and not someone else? Yep… lots of questions come up but for now… let’s just deal with the first one… What are the Akashic Records and what is stored within them?

Patience, courage, and deep healing

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis message is dedicated to the Kid (the kitty in the pic who passed away last night)…

The Kid, like most cats, was very patient.  He used that ability to hunt and focus intently, waiting for the right moment to pounce.  He also seemed to be very Continue reading “Patience, courage, and deep healing”

1st Place!

The following photos were taken by me and entered in the county fair.

footprints-1st place-small
I call this photo “Footprints”.  Most people don’t realize that Arizona gets snow.  Well this picture was taken outside my fiance’s front door in Kachina Village right outside Flagstaff, Arizona.  It was taken a few years ago and we were snowed in for a day because of all the snow.  I believe we had 2 or 3 feet of snow.  We had shoveled the snow the night before and woke up to more.  The “Kid”, his kitty, decided to make his mark on the newly fallen snow as seen by his footprints.

 

courthouse-1st place-small
This picture called “Florence Courthouse” is a beauty!  I love the contrast of the building and sky.  The courthouse is the original courthouse of Florence, Arizona.  Everything below this point had scaffolding all around as they were fixing a lot of damage.

 

butterfly-3rd place-small
This one got third place of the five photos I entered.

 

The next two photos were also entered but received no ribbons.  I still love them!  🙂

Yellow Cactus Flower-small
A yellow cactus flower.

This tree is on the top of Mt. Elden in Flagstaff, Arizona.  The winds are so strong there that some of the trees actually grow twisted.  These type of trees are homes to birds such as the bald eagle.

I hope you liked seeing another side of me.  🙂

The Climb…

The Climb…

Do you ever feel like you’re climbing your personal mountain and then all of a sudden you can’t see where you’re going?  It can be a struggle just to do the climb but when you get to a point where everything seems to have disappeared… your purpose seems to have left you and you don’t know where to turn.
