If you want to live the life you came here to live. FEEL into it. Turn off the past. The lessons you learned there are over. Clear that canvas and paint that which you want to see now....

If you want to live the life you came here to live... hmm? Do you know what that life looks like? Do you have any idea what life you came here to live?

The life you have been living until now may not be totally satisfactory, but did you know there were other choices? I didn't get that memo, did you? I didn't come into this world with a list of life options in my little hand. 

This is the journey, is it not, finding out what you want out of the life you have been given? 

I think these are life's burning questions. Why am I here? What am I supposed to be doing? How can I make my life better? How can I make a difference?Inevitably, there are the fortunate few on earth who seem to have this down to a fine art. They look as though they know exactly what they are doing and where they are going. They probably know what life they came here to live. But where on earth did they get that information? It seems to be a hit and miss proposition at best. 

People are always questioning themselves, seeking wisdom from psychics, tarot card readers, clergymen, psychologists etc. forever seeking, trying to find out if they are on the right path; if they are going in the right direction and what they are supposed to be doing.
Doing what feels good for you, seems to be the answer. You will go off in many different directions throughout your life, but eventually, you calm down and settle on the path that fits. Life becomes less of a struggle, as you finally step out in the direction that unites your heart and soul.

Just because you're offended, doesn't mean you're right.

This simple statement really hit home for me today. It's one of those things that you know, probably figured someone else should know, but just never really thought about it. Of course, you believe you are right if you are offended.

I find a lot of the expressions, the over -indulgence in explicit sexual language and/or interaction, violence, as well as the vulgar speech that is acceptable today, to be offensive.

Now, I suppose that a lot of it has to do with my age; and I do know that this is no longer the world of my youth, BUT.....

I am not a delicate little flower, nor (entirely), old school, I have laughed uproariously at many an off-colour joke, but somehow the foul mouths of some of the general population, showing no care or consideration for those within earshot, I find, disrespectful and rude. 

Why is this? We knew how to talk when there were adults anywhere around. There was a special attempt to 'mind our manners' around the elderly, our parents, and any authority figure. Is it just that the modern world needs to express themselves and we were riddled with rules? Is it television, video games, movies? Is it the fact that more mothers are working (out of the home) mothers? Is it that children have rights pertaining to discipline? What has happened to respect and consideration for others?

I am not saying I'm right, but I am entitled to feel offended. I also realize that this is no longer our world, it now belongs to the next generation, and they will make it what they want. Maybe the previous behaviours get voted off the island as each generation passes the torch, but acceptance, tolerance, and respect for others shouldn't be the first to go, should they?

There is something very aligning about not listening to all the chatter in the world. Abraham

Decide that you wanna feel good. And you wanna feel good so much, that you're willing to give up the opinions that don't allow you to feel good about everything.

See your environment as a buffet of many choices and make more deliverate choices about what you think about. Abraham

The less you think of trouble, the less of it you get. Trust that all is well and watch for evidence of it. Abraham

I have this discussion with different friends concerning the news. I deliberately do not tune into to the news, they feel I should be aware of what is going on and keep current. I beg to differ, I do not feel that being baragged by a concentrated outpouring of devastation does one single thing for my health or well-being. I find it to be an insult to my senses and avoid watching at all costs. I am aware that there is turmoil throughout the world, you can't escape what is taking place in this digital world, but I do not need to sit through an hour of my day totally immersed in it.

There is nothing a person can do when on the receiving end of world news, except send love and light to the victims and survivors, and that I do. It doesn't make you more humane to absorb the details, it only creates stress, and continues to 'get life' from everyone discussing it. My opinion is not necessary, nor does it create any workable solutions. Therefore, the nightly news is the section of the buffet that I will skip. I have a calm and quiet life now and I treasure that, so that is how it will stay. 

Trust that all is well and watch for evidence of it.

My brother told me a joke
and I laughed to tears. He
told me the same joke again
and I laughed but not as
hard. He kept repeating the 
joke and I stopped laughing.

Then he said if you can't 
laugh at the same joke over 
and over again, why do you
keep crying over the same
people who hurt you over
and over again?

This is a very thought provoking. Isn't that the way it goes? The hurt seems to remain forever. Even when we think we are over it, we only have to have someone say or do something that reminds of that person, or we run into them on the street,  and we're off on another tangent. 
Why is this?

Laughing is a joyful experience and yet we get bored if the reason for the laughter is repetitive. But do we ever get bored going over and over what he said or what she did? 

Unresolved issues are the problem. Obviously, you have been unable to let go of the feelings associated with that person. It is never easy, but who is it hurting? Is it hurting them? This is highly unlikely, a person that hurts another, whether physically, emotionally, and/or mentally, is not the type of person that cares much about anybody's feelings. 

Is it hurting YOU? Yes, you are the one carrying the burden, you are the one that reacts to reminders of the hurt. Therefore, you are the one that needs to rid yourself of it. Forgive them, this will free you. You are not forgiving what they did, you are forgiving because you refuse to carry the burden any longer. AND forgive yourself for allowing this behaviour to affect you. This is the beginning of the healing.

Each experience in your life was absolutely necessary in order to have gotten you to the next place and the next step up until this very moment.

Dr. Wayne Dyer

None of your time has been wasted, you have never stayed too long, and everything you have seen, done, accomplished or failed to accomplish was part of the plan. Each time you fell in love, and/or welcomed the 'wrong' person into your life, every little detail of your life so far has led you to this moment. You are exactly where you are meant to be at this time. 

All of your experiences were absolutely necessary to propel you forward to NOW.

Never feel that you should have left that situation earlier, or that you shouldn't have done it at all. Of course, you should have done it. How do I know that? Because you did it. You wouldn't have done it if that wasn't what was intended for you. No regrets! Whatever happened, happened. It was necessary for your continued growth. Forgive yourself whenever you feel you took a step in the wrong direction, don't hold onto sadness or disappointment, figure out the lesson and move on. 

You are never in a situation that wasn't designed for you, you are not in the wrong place at the wrong time. That is where you were meant to be. You are on your journey and the path will always take you in the right direction for you. 

Each person's journey is unique, and you walk it alone. Others may enter to assist or distract you, but they have their own course. Don't allow anyone to run your life for you, or tell you how it should be, you are more than capable of handling it yourself.  Just do your own thing and enjoy your life..... 
Live, Love, and Laugh!

Much as you would like to give the blame to the other for what is happening it is your lack of appreciation for self that is responsible for areas of lack in your experience.

There is not one negative thing that is happening for any other reason than you are not appreciating yourself.


Everything that you suffer through, all the negativity that you endure, is a lesson. It is never someone or something else. If you weren't meant to be involved in a certain situation or with a certain person... you wouldn't be. 

You WILL have lessons.  You came here to learn, and therefore, you manifest certain circumstances and people to educate you. Earth is the school of hard knocks!  From illness to a natural disaster, there is a lesson to be learned, and you have put yourself in the position to learn it. This is YOUR life and YOU are the creator. If you need to learn to 'stand up' for yourself, you will create the conditions that enable you to figure out how to do it. Everything happens for a reason, you meet certain people to help you to 'get it.' If you don't 'get it' you will repeat the lesson until you do.

Your entire journey is about self-love, about understanding and appreciating YOU.  Your experiences will lead you in that direction. Don't allow others to run your life for you and always keep your vibration high by being positive. 

"Your work is to tend to your own energy balance, and when you do, YOUR world will come into perfect alignment." Abraham-Hicks

Don't let past relationships and old mistakes ruin your future. Don't let someone or something that didn't make it in your life continue to hurt you. If you do, you're still giving a portion of your life to something that no longer's like letting your happiness slip into a black hole. Learn the lesson, release the pain, and move on. Scars remind us of where we have been, not where we are headed.

Your issues have been accumulating for years and years.  You  have picked up 'stuff' from various sources throughout your journey, in fact, everyone that has touched your life has left their mark. They may have taught you something that will never leave you, they may have caused heartache, or they may have loved you. No matter what the reason, there is always some residue left from significant people in your life. If they hurt you, it is something that will continue to show up in future relationships until you deal with it. You don't want it to ruin every relationship from here on, so don't ignore the hurt, release it.

Learn the lesson, release the pain and move on. 

Remind yourself that healing, releasing, and forgiving doesn't happen overnight so be patient with yourself.  Hanging on to the past will only drag you down and you are here to enjoy your life. Just because it didn't work out with one person does NOT mean you are unlovable, quite the contrary. You have learned a few things, you know what you want now and what you need. This is about you loving yourself and choosing someone that loves you too. Don't settle.

"The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves."

Alan Watts

Everything is within you.... all the answers to all the questions. You have the power to create the life you desire, in whatever form that takes. 

You are enough, just as you are, to fulfill your purpose. 

This life is your mission, what you are here on earth for, and you are fully equipped with everything you need to complete it. All that is required is that you live this life you have been given. 

Every step of your journey is destined, everyone you meet and everything you do. There are no mistakes, all is well. By merely breathing you are working on your mission. You may never know the effect you have on the people of this earth just by being yourself, doing what you do, but an effect you do have. 

It is not necessary for you to be MORE than you already are. There is nothing to achieve beyond YOU, this is your ultimate goal as a spirit inhabiting a human body. 

You came here to learn and perfect. Everyone has 'stuff' to overcome, everyone, not just you. We all feel stuck, sad, lonely, scared at some time in our lives, that is just part of the process. But you are up to it, or you wouldn't be here. This is your life, you are in charge and you have what it takes.

Anything that you are wanting: don't stand in the lack of it and lament that it isn't there and expect it to come to you. 

It cannot.

Find a little piece of it, a little trail of it, a little clue of it - look for something about it, and focus upon that little piece, and by Law of Attraction, watch it grow!


How often do we do that? We want something to happen, and there doesn't appear to be any movement in that direction. No matter what you do, you don't seem to be able to make it happen. It becomes an obsession, a constant nagging thought, always foremost in your mind. How can I make this happen, I am not getting what I want or need? What can I do?

As usual, there is a reason... You are focusing on what you don't have, standing in the lack of it. You are vibrating with the wrong message....LACK. You can't lament, ad infinitum, over whatever is lacking in your life, and expect positive results. It will not happen. LIKE ATTRACTS LIKE... whatever you are focusing on, is what you will receive. 

The Law of Attraction: by focusing on positive or negative thoughts a person brings positive or negative experiences into their life.

Don't focus on what is missing ... picture yourself surrounding by everything you desire.  Find your passion and focus on that. Be aware of all that you have, focus on gratitude. 

Once you determine what it is you want, then you can let it go and allow the Universe to bring it to you. If you want good things in your life, do good things.

Drama does not just walk into your life.
Either you create it, invite it, or associate with it.

Do you have any drama in your life or is everything calm and reasonable? You cannot reason with an unreasonable person, You can only remain calm in a confrontation, or present reasonable alternatives to the drama, but you are talking to a tornado; your words are simply scattered to the wind.                                                    
The Urban Dictionary states - Drama Junkie: One who enjoys drama to the point that they are addicted and usually starts problems because they have nothing better to do with their time.  Drama Queen: Someone who turns something unimportant into a major deal. Someone who blows things way out of proportion whenever they get the chance.

Drama is a life of struggle, chaos, and turmoil; with some over reaction and over acting thrown in for good measure. It usually starts as a way to get attention, but can become a necessity to keep life interesting and exciting. Life simply isn't big enough without the drama. 

Their story is never simple or direct, there is never any resolution to any problem, everything is an emergency, life is always hanging off the end of a cliff. These are obvious signs, but add manipulation, avoidance, assigning blame, denial, lying and you're in the middle of the drama dance. Also, please note the words chosen here are words of the drama dance - Never, Always and you can add, Everyone/everything.

The point of the quote is, the drama is surrounding you for a reason if you are not the one creating it, you probably don't want it in your life.

The way to eliminate it is not to react to it. The response is the trigger. If you have a child, parent or friend that is a drama junkie/queen, it is their issue, not yours.... you need to detach. Sometimes, drugs or alcohol are the reason for the dramatics and other times it is a means of getting whatever they want. Do not respond to the antics, just walk away. It is similar to a temper tantrum, do not give it any credence. You deserve a calm, quiet, peaceful life, and detaching yourself from drama will get you there.

Be confused, it's where you begin
to learn new things. Be broken, it's where you begin to heal. Be frustrated, it's where you start to make more authentic decisions. Be sad, because if we are brave enough we can hear our heart's wisdom through it.

Be whatever you are right now. No more hiding. You are worthy, always.

To live your authentic life you need to be aware of what is going on with you, how you are feeling about everything; whether you are stressed, sad, depressed, lonely, tired or scared.

Acknowledge what is taking place in your life right now. Accept how you feel, if you are sad, go with it. It's true emotion and deserves recognition. It is often hard to admit to feelings for most of us, being vulnerable can be extremely uncomfortable. 

BUT, hiding or stuffing your feelings is never good for you, it's always better to let them rise to the surface and burst forth. It's a process that requires time, patience and compassion to work through. If you are denying your feelings, they will make themselves known, in some way in the future. Pent up feelings will try to get your attention in many ways and often result in illness.

Be true to YOU, if you feel something, take some time to look at it, let the feelings flow, feel them and release them, it's critical to your health and well-being. There is a bonus in doing this, you begin to heal. Don't hide them, at least not from yourself, you are worthy and important. You deserve to feel good.

"Love is not possessiveness; many people think that's what love is" you possess somebody totally. To possess somebody is to destroy all possibility of love."


You don't own your husband or wife, they are not your property. Just because you marry someone does not obligate them to do whatever you want. This is a choice each person makes, to delight and/or please the other, it is not an expectation or obligation. You are not in charge of them, they are a partner in your life, you work through life together. 

Usually, there is a mutual love and respect with the other person in the union, but they are still a separate entity. Marriage may make you a family, but it does not make one person out of the two of you. It's quite presumptuous, isn't it, to think you can control or possess another adult?

If you think of your spouse as a possession, you may be surprised when you have a rebellion on your hands. No person can be considered as property, a chattel, owned or YOURS. This person has chosen to spend their life with you in a harmonious, loving way, and you will surely ruin it if you think of them as your property. That is not love.

Love is unconditional, there are no other requirements, it's freely given from the heart. Love is a gift.

Love is a Rose - Linda Ronstadt
"Love is a rose but you better not pick it
Only grows when it's on the vine
Handful of thorns and you'll know you've missed it
Lose your love when you say the word MINE."

Everyone's experience indicates that everything we are, and everything we do, is simply the movement of existence itself. It's here that we come to the highest realization indicated in all the great spiritual traditions: we do not exist as anything apart from the flow of nature and that flow is an unformed, inexplicable dance accomplishing itself.
Darryl Bailey

We are all one, an essential component of our planet and everything and everyone on it.  We are not separated by race, colour, creed, OR personalities, attitudes, body shape, financial standing, political affiliations. We are not here to judge. Everyone, without exception, is simply seeking love and acceptance.

"Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill and die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life n peace."
John Lennon - Imagine

You cannot really disconnect yourself from the passionate, desirous being that you are. It was with enormous clarity that you came forth into this  body, and that's why when you try to hold your desire down, it keeps coming up....

Your cork will always float unless you are holding it down.


We all have things we want to DO or BE that we have put on hold in order to maintain the lifestyle to which we are currently accustomed. We may have accepted what was expected and established ourselves in a life that is no longer fulfilling or, perhaps never was. Now we find that we have too much invested to stop and acknowledge the nagging part of us that wants more or, at the very least, something different. 

Whatever fragment of you that is not being honoured, will make itself known to you in some way. You can only disconnect from those parts of yourself for so long before you begin to feel the effects of holding back. You have a reason for being here, but by keeping parts of yourself hidden, you won't be open to your destiny. What is it that you are longing for, that you feel you missed out on?

When was the last time you felt passion for something.....anything? It's all there, you haven't lost it, it's still retrievable. Your passion is waiting for you to honour yourself and allow it to, finally, be the top priority.

The greatest act of courage is to be and own all that you are. Without apology, without any excuses and without any masks to cover the truth of who you truly are.

You will never speak to anyone more than you speak to yourself in your head. Be kind to yourself.

Your inner voice is constant, a running commentary on every thought that enters your head. Something that is taking place at this moment, another from last week and an incident from your childhood are all competing for recognition. The 'voices in your head' are very real, and often negative. It's as if you have stored every negative message you ever received or thought about yourself and they are on the repeat cycle in your head. 

Make sure your worst enemy is not living between your own two ears.

Thankfully, you have the ability to choose one thought over the others. When you receive negative messaging, you are able to put a stop to it. It is not true, it is often the worst case scenario, and just causes you stress. Your peace of mind is too important to allow these thoughts to take over your life. 

"It is not what you say our of your mouth that determines your life, it's what you whisper to yourself that has the most power." Robert Kovosaki

"Relentless, repetitive self-talk is what change our self-image." 
Denis Waitley

If you pay attention, you'll become aware of the negative thoughts running through your mind, the ones that cause anxiety. You are not obligated to believe everything you think. Choose what you want to listen to and it could change your life.  Be kind to yourself!! 

The mind replays what the heart can't delete.

Many around you want to point out 'reality' to you. They say "Face the facts. Look at what is" And we say to you, if you are able to see only what is then, by the Law of Attraction, you will create only more of what is. You must be able to put your thoughts beyond what is in order to attract something different or something more.


There will never be a shortage of doubters to point out that an idea probably won't work, or that the way you approach your life is foolish. One of the most significant things you can do for yourself is to stop listening to others' opinions concerning your life. Thank them for their advice and do what you need to do, for you.

No one really knows what's best for you except you, others are talking from their own experiences and fears. If they are telling you to 'take a reality check', you have to know that it is their reality they are talking about, not yours. You know what is best for you, what you want and need, they do not.

If your reality is not the way you want it to be, then change it. If you look around and find that you are lonely, broke and/or depressed, only you can change what is. You deserve more than that. This may be your life at this moment, but don't just assume that this is the only way it can be. Stop erecting barriers that stop you from moving forward. Put your thoughts beyond the little box you are existing in and try being thankful for what you do have. Send up the vibration of gratitude and you will most assuredly attract something more. It's the Law.

Think you can't change the world? Too late you already have...

I think most people find it hard to believe that they are as important as they are to others, and the whole scheme of things. 

You have a position here on earth, you were anticipated at birth and will change more lives than you can imagine, simply by being yourself. You job is to be YOU! That's it. You make a difference, every where you go and in everything you do. You will be an inspiration to some and a warning to others, but a difference you will make. Some people will never be the same because they came in contact with you

Many will be skeptical concerning people noticing their existence, and still others hope that no one will. But you do have an effect; it may be the way you choose to dress, do your hair, the way you talk, or simply that you smiled at them. It may be that random act of kindness, you so graciously kept to yourself, or the way you were impatient with the clerk at the store. Whatever you may have done or said, you were noticed and it had a lasting effect on someone. We all hope it is our positive attributes that are noticed, but either way, the fact is that you do affect change.

Jackie Robinson

“You are here to make a difference, to either improve the world or worsen it. And whether or not you consciously choose to, you will accomplish one or the other.”  Richelle E. Goodrich

Your body is dutifully loyal in giving you feedback on the 
effects of your thoughts and feelings. Essentially, health is a state of mind.

Barbara Marciniak

Your body is the first responder for anything that is going on within. Your system will plug up, break out or down, use any method necessary to give you the message. The body will always tell you that things aren't quite right. Thoughts affect your well-being so completely that illness is often the result of negative thinking. You will always get a small nudge or hint first, perhaps a rash, to alert you that something needs attention. 

If there is something that nags at you or consistently reoccurs, there is a message behind it; anything from arthritis to warts, have something to say. 

(You may want to google 'Heal Your Body' by Louise L. Hay, to get some insight into how your body speaks to you.)

It's simple really.... when you cut your finger, it heals itself, literally YOU heal it. You are fully equipped for repairing your body. Therefore, given that you are able to mend a cut, it stands to reason, that you have the power to heal any bump, lump or illness. It is mind over matter. Your body is meant to function to full capacity at all times. Sometimes it is lifestyle damaged, and that may require some changes, but you have the ability to take care of yourself by eliminating negativity and stress from your life. Find your happy place.

Essentially, health is a state of mind

Trying to change ourselves doesn't work in the long run because we're resisting our own energy. Self-improvement can have temporary results, but lasting transformation occurs only when we honour ourselves as the source of wisdom and compassion.

Pema Chodron

You are who you are, you were made to be this person, you are the only one that can fulfill your position here on this planet. You were not meant to be built like someone you admire and you were not meant to have anything other than what you were given. You are perfect as you are for being YOU.

"Be yourself, everyone else is already taken." Oscar Wilde

I am in no way saying that you shouldn't improve your diet, exercise more, work on overcoming addiction, all the self-destructive 'stuff' that inhibits your true self from emerging, but, mainly you are here to honour who you are. 

You are enough, you are loved and you have all you need to become the best YOU. Don't try to change yourself for anyone or any cause. You are who you are for a reason and you are the only one that fits the profile. 

You are capable of amazing things. Celebrate YOU, wonderful YOU, and don't end your life as a copy. Remember... You don't have to justify your existence to anyone, it was made for you. 

"This above all, to thine own self be true" Shakespeare

Just look at life with more playful eyes,
Don't be serious.
Seriousness becomes like a blindness.
Don't pretend to be a thinker, a philosopher.
Just simply be a human being.
The whole world is showering its joy on you in so many ways, but you are too serious, you cannot open your heart.

"Don't take life too seriously, you'll never get out of it alive anyway." Elbert Hubbard

Just simply be a human being..... 

That is really the only thing you have to do. Seriousness is often a sign of fear, you want to be in control of things, on top of your game, watching your back, making absolutely certain that NO ONE can ever take advantage of you. It's a heavy load to carry, isn't it, worrying about what could happen to you and/or your family all the time? You are creating a deliberate humourlessness reality for yourself and those around you. Life is meant to be joyful.

How does this serious, sober, solemn, somber attitude toward life make you feel? Life is a bitch and then you die? You need more than that to keep you going, life doesn't have to be miserable unless you prefer it that way. It's up to you. 

You can have and be anything you want, it is all there for you, as it is for all of us. You have not deliberately been excluded from the joy in life. By standing guard over your heart, you are not preventing anything bad from happening, you are preventing anything good from entering. Relax the vice grip, open your heart and be prepared to receive!
