Sometimes We Fall

135Sometimes we fall. Sometimes we fall, get up, and fall again. Sometimes we don’t know why, we just know we fell and all that matters is getting back up. In the silence of our minds and the beating of our hearts, we know what we need to do to get back up. Facing ourselves and our truth can be difficult but it can also be powerful beyond measure. Our truth always lies within ~ anything that causes us to fall will always be found in our outer life.

Letting go of your outer life is an essential step toward getting back up because it leaves but one thing ~ it leaves the power within, the all-knowing, the greatest part of who we are. It leaves your Inner Life. Letting go of your outer life means letting go of anything or anyone that causes stress, anxiety, sadness, pain, heartache, dis-ease, imbalance, depression, addictions, anger, hatred, lack or unhappiness. None of these things you will find in your Inner Life.

37Letting go does not necessarily mean getting rid of (unless of course you know you need to). It means turning your focus from your outer life to your Inner Life. It means letting go of all resistance to what is and holding on to the here and now. When you focus yourself into the present moment, allowing yourself to feel and live the fullness of who you truly are, the things causing you to “fall” do not exist because they are not a part of your present moment experience. They are not a part of your Inner Life. Any and all things that cause an imbalance within yourself comes from the past or the future. It is never from the here and now.

41Your Inner Life is the non-physical part of who you are ~ pure, positive, ever-expanding vibrational energy. It is the core and the connection to all that is, all that ever was, and all that will ever be. Your Inner Life is where you will find the purest and truest “form” of love, inner-peace, balance, abundance, well-being, joy and happiness. It is the part of you that will keep you in balance so that you don’t fall again.

So when you start to feel as if you are going to fall again, let go of your outer life, focus inward, and allow your Inner Life take you to where you want to be.

If true and lasting happiness is what you seek, seek first from within. Live, breathe and be your Inner Life. Quiet your mind, focus solely on the present moment and allow the power of your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be ….

Are Your Thoughts Stealing Your Happiness?

“You’d  never invite a thief into your house, so why would you allow thoughts, that steal your joy, to make themselves at home in your mind?” – Unknown 

When I read this quote I had one of those moments when the light turned on and I could see more clearly ….. it really makes you think.  Why do we allow thoughts that steal our joy, happiness and well-being?  If you were told by a doctor that negative thinking is a life threatening disease, would you keep thinking negative thoughts?  No, of course you wouldn’t, but we do.  And what if you were told the cure for this life threatening disease was positive thinking, would you take your dosage as prescribed?  Of course you would, we all would.  So WHY do we insist on robbing ourselves of who we really are and of our own precious life by focusing on the negative?  Life is supposed to be joyful, happy and abundant!

36

Honestly speaking, I do believe negative thinking is a life threatening disease.  It is a disease that slowly and painfully drains the life right out of you.  It takes you to dark places, creates depression, dis-ease and pain, and can very easily turn into destructive behavior patterns.  Once the negativity takes control, we lose control.  Often times we reach for a quick fix to make us feel better, but unfortunately those things are typically pills, street drugs, alcohol or junk food.  We try to rid ourselves of the emotional pain we are experiencing not realizing at the time these solutions are only temporary and will only lead to more problems, pain and negativity. 

37

Why not reach for something natural ~ why not reach for a positive thought, a positive feeling, a good memory, a walk in the park, sitting in the sun, playing in the sand, spending time with loved ones, playing with your pet, watching a funny movie, listening to the kind of music that makes you want to dance, having a picnic, sharing a laugh with a friend ~ There are hundreds of positive things to reach for!  Instead of allowing your thoughts to steal your happiness, choose to replace them with the good in you and around you.  Choose to get back in tune with your Inner Life, where there is no negativity.  Choose to be happy not just because you know you should, but because you know you deserve it!

38

If true and lasting happiness is what you seek, seek first from within.  Live, breathe and be your Inner Life.  Quiet your mind, focus solely on the present moment and allow the power of your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be ….

Love & Light,

Yielding To What Is

03When we yield to the things in our lives that cause us anything but joy and happiness we are giving ourselves the freedom to be truly happy.  Yielding to or giving way to something doesn’t always take it away or change things, it just doesn’t run you over. You may still have to face the unwanted, but instead of it completely knocking you down, you are then able to let it run its course with peace instead of anger.

Yielding to what is isn’t about failure or giving up for that matter.  It is about allowing the natural flow of life and of being in tune with your Inner Life, the greater and more powerful part of who you are.  When you are in tune with your Inner Life being alive and living the life you want comes so much easier than fighting against it.

So I say to you, just yield.  Give way to everything that imprisons you in a negative state of being.  A state of being that keeps you out of tune with your Inner Life and therefore unhappy.  Just yield to all the negative behaviors, feelings and emotions you are holding onto and just let them go.  You are holding on too tight, you are fighting too hard, you are resisting your inner truth.  You are resisting life as it is.  Everything you want, need and desire is right here, right now, all you have to do is just yield and trust all is well.

04“If true and lasting happiness is what you seek, seek first from within.  Live, breathe and be your Inner Life.  Quiet your mind, focus solely on the present moment, and allow the power of your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be.”  – Cindy Ortiz
