Think BIGGER


Dear Self,

I get that your desire is to locate a second job for supplemental income. However, I need for you to think BIGGER. Maybe you’re not able to find the job you seek because it has yet to be created. Use this time to tap into your passion inorder to create a purposeful yet lucrative second income for yourself. Think bigger! Be bolder! And do NOT let money cloud your judgment. If you settle for less than you deserve, you’ll get even less than what you settled for. Hard was never easy and easy will never be hard. Hiya! So exercise your creative juices and believe that this to shall come. And so it freakin is! This is myTRUTHmyCLARITY. 

From,

Self

Fishbowl 


Hey fellow writers! I always wonder how many people actually read these posts? Then I wonder why I do I actually care? I mean my purpose for writing is for me to reflect on my truth my clarity. If my journey inspires others …. great! If not… eh… it is what it is. No shade…. wink. 

Sorry folks, today’s a funky kind of day. Heck I’m just tired and it’s myTRUTHmyCLARITY. Lol. I’ve found myself trying to keep busy in order to avoid the present matters at hand. Sigh…. I’m tired just thinking about it. I keep hearing ‘one day at a time’ but these days are wearing me out! Lol. It’s interesting because I feel this need to ‘keep swimming’ 🏊 but lately I’m feeling more compelled to simply float. I’m doing all this swimming and haven’t a clue which direction I should even be headed in. Round and round I go wondering why I’m chasing my tail. The other day it dawned on me to actually stop swimming and come up for some damn air. Like literally take my head up out of the water! Well damn! Didn’t realize I was actually swimming/exhibiting in a fishbowl of emotions which speaks to why I’ve been suffocating. 

I’m tired friends….and just feel this need to float calmly in the ripples of my emotions. As I lay on my back and look up out of the fishbowl I wonder what’s out there? How do I get myself out of this bowl of emotions. My desire to change goes beyond buying a filter and changing the water. I want more than this bowl…I want to be able to leap out of this bowl and float through the winds of possibility. I want to feel free of all the pain and sorrow. I lay here floating….. feeling to tired to swim. It’s so hard to just be still but know I must if ever I am to restore my fire 🔥 to persevere. I float freely……just being with self and having faith that one day I’ll be restored enough to take the leap of LIFE out of the bowl and into the unknown. This is myTRUTHmyCLARITY. And so it is….I FLOAT. :0)

The TREE of LIFE

LIFE

Life is like a leaf in a tree.

Moved by an invisible force.

Swaying in an undetermined direction.

Eventually resolving back to its original place of stillness.

Life is like the branch of a tree.

Supported by something greater than itself.

Waving around with the hope of being noticed.

Slowly resolving back into its original place of stillness.

Life is stillness

Stillness is peace.

Peace is life.

This is myTRUTHmyCLARITY.

HOW….to feel GREAT every single day!

image

Eight ways to tap into the power of intention and feel great every day:

1) Make meditation a regular practice in your life. You need to take time to get quiet, to go within, and from this silence make conscious contact with the source of intention. You’re already connected to everything that you perceive as missing from your life; go with a realign.

2) Become conscious of the foods you eat. Foods high in alkalinity such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, soy, nonyeast breads and virgin olive oil are high-energy foods and will strengthen you, while highly acidic foods such as flour-based cereals, meats, dairy and sugars lower energy and will weaken you.

3) Retreat from low-energy substance. Alcohol, cigarettes, caffeine, sugar and virtually all artificial drugs, legal or otherwise, lower your body’s energy level and weaken you.

4) Become aware of the energy level of the music you listen to. Some rap music—filled with profanity and messages about killing, for example—is an energy drain, while music that has a more soothing impact on the soul has been proven to be beneficial.

5) Become aware of the energy levels of your home environment. Make your home a nurturing, cheerful and peaceful environment.

6) Reduce your exposure to low-energy commercial television. Children see 12,000 simulated murders on TV before their 14th birthday! Television news puts a heavy emphasis on the bad and the ugly, leaving out the good.

7) Enhance your energy field with photographs. Every photograph contains energy. Carry and display photos taken in moments of happiness, love and receptivity.

8) Become conscious of the energy levels of your acquaintances, friends and extended family. Choose to be in close proximity to those who are empowering, who see the greatness in you, who feel connected to spirit.

ALL OF THE small THINGS

image

ALL OF THE small THINGS

Today marks the beginning of my weekend and I decided against going to The big city which is about an hour and a half away. After driving over two hours to and from work all week…I think I’ll pass. Lol.

I decided to keep it simple today by going to the gym which is a twenty-minute drive away from where I live. Incase you haven’t realized, I reside in a very remote town. Therefore, having a car is necessary and driving a long distance for a small ounce of normalcy is so needed.

In order to make the trip to the gym a little less mundane, I decided to pay closer attention to ‘all the small things’. You know it’s amazing how much a person misses particularly when you are immersed within your routines. We get so caught up and forget to pay attention to the littles details of life that surround us. Often times it’s the small things that remind us that we are alive.

ALL THE small THINGS that caught my attention.

1. The strategically placed date trees that line the highway.

2. The endless supply of water hoses needed to keep the trees alive.

3. The cement highway that maneuvers its way through the desert.

4. Manmade forests planted in the middle of the desert.

5. Speed radars that often inconvenience us but serve a greater purpose…..safety!

6. Sand dune after sand dune. Tons of sand everywhere!

7. Fencing that lines the entire stretch of highway.

8. Railroad track that is being constructed throughout the entire stretch of desert.

9. Birds flying through the air seeking refuge from the baking sun.

10. Desert plants scattered in random locations indicating the abundance of water that is supposedly sitting deep beneath the desert sand.

11. A yellowish, orangey, red like color that encompasses the back drop of all that meets the eye.

12. Construction trucks off in the far desert with an array of building materials surrounding an evident camp site which houses desert workers.

13. A big white pipe that has followed me throughout my entire 20 minute drive to the gym. It shows itself periodically and then dives beneath a sand dune. Then pops back up again waving at me before it circles around the next dune. Before long it disappears deep into the desert looking back at me grinning proudly knowing its purpose and me wondering what exactly that is….

14. A man waving at me, standing in the hot sun hoping I stop to give him a ride. Sigh…..but I don’t! Sorry folks, I live in a foreign country and have found that we all have different levels of comfort. I’ve never been comfortable with picking strangers up on the side of the road. Whats crazy is, you see this often and what they will do is literally throw their bodies out onto the highway. Thinking if they just stretch out a little further, the driver will see them. I veer to the left side of the road in order to avoid hitting the man.

15. A city bus trailing behind me which will surely stop to give him a ride. I feel better now. :0)

16. I notice a peace, contentedness, quietness, stillness, that surrounds me. I turn down Alicia Keys, roll down the window, and allow the wind to circumnavigate its way into my nose and out of my mouth. As it waves goodbye to my lips, it decides to hang out for a minute in the backseat of my car looking for a seatbelt. It finds one, straps itself into the seat and demands I roll the rest of the windows down. I comply, and it smiles while happily waving goodbye to the air conditioning that joined me at the beginning of my journey to the gym. Instantly, we are joined by an abundance of warm air that reminds me of where I am. The hot desert! The wind and its friends (sand and humidity) demand I slow down as they all work together and begin to shake my car from side to side. I release my foot off of the gas pedal and that’s when I really begin to ride with the wind, sand and humidity. Oddly, it felt nice to let go and just coast along the highway. The car stops shaking. The sand settles into it a seat and the humidity is no longer riding on the back of my neck hanging on for dear life. As the car continues to slow down to a complete stop along the side of the road, I realize in that moment I am being taught a lesson. STOP AND BE STILL. THIS IS WHEN YOU TRULY ARE ABLE TO RECOGNIZE ALL OF THE small THINGS.

17. The wind, sand and humidity let themselves out of the car and motion for me to walk over to the side of the desert highway. Together they begin to run in circles creating a small desert twister. I back up not exactly sure what’s happening. As they spin round, and round and round the mini cyclone rises into the warm air high above the hot desert. I call out to my new friends, “wind, sand, humidity!” They disappear behind a cloud that sits all alone in the clear blue sky. I stand there for a moment and ponder all that has happened and realize for the first time in my entire life this is what it feels like to just BE IN THE MOMENT.

I get into my car and make a promise to myself to take time out of everyday to not DO anything and just BE. This is what life is all about folks! ALL THE small THINGS! :0)

Sit down and BE STILL ;0)

Image

Do you ever stop and take in your SURROUNDINGS? Is there ever a moment when the stillness of the EARTH catches your attention? Do you ever find yourself thinking about the greatness of what really IS going on all around you? I’m not talking about things that are viewed through the lens of the ‘huMAN’. I am referring to everything else that exists beyond what we have come to know and understand.

As I was driving to work one morning, the stillness of the earth caught my third eye. How was this possible? Well imagine yourself on an airplane. You’re 30,000 feet up in the sky and traveling over 500 mph. Yet, it doesn’t feel like you’re moving that fast until you hit a bit of turbulence. Suddenly, your attention shifts directly to the movement of the plane because now your senses have heightened!

That morning my senses were heightened by the simultaneous movement of the EARTH around the SUN (as it rose above horizon) and the MOON around the earth as it began to disappear in the distance. I sensed earth moving in that very moment. As I pulled my car over and continued to observe this magical moment, I began feeling so present in that very moment. It was perfect! The moon was disappearing in my front window, the sun was rising in my rearview mirror and there I was observing my SOURCE doing what it does best: NOTHING yet EVERYTHING all at once. There was a serenity that consumed my body and my EGO didn’t know what to do other than run and hide. As the peacefulness moved throughout my body, it was if the sun and moon were adjusting my spiritual frequency. I could feel the energy of both forces pulling on me simultaneously, stripping me of today’s to-do list and life’s challenges. I felt so consciously aware. I felt awake. I felt free. I felt an abundance of peace in that moment and it felt mighty ‘GoOD’!

Why does any of this matter? Well Folks, life can wear you out! Therefore, Inviting stillness into your space helps to minimize the infamous mind chatter. Suddenly, everything will seem so small, so easy. Open your eyes! No, really open your THIRD eye and recognize that you are a space of consciousness/awareness in this world that we call earth. YOU are the observer of what’s being observed. Really take that in….and sit with it. In order for you to be aware of the space in which you inhabit, sit down somewhere, open your mouth, breathe in/out and just be STILL. Sounds easy right? Then what are you waiting for…….? :0)

I am fortunate enough to be greeted with a beautiful sunrise at the beginning of the day and a memorable sunset at the end of the day. These moments are great reminders for me to be STILL, be PRESENT, and to be NOW. I challenge you to go to a park and be with a tree. Or go to the beach and be with the water. Or pull your car over and be with the sun. Or sit in your garden and be with your flowers. Whatever you decide to do, just be sure you are not thinking. Focus on your breathing and the beauty that surrounds you. Your sources voice resides in the silence……and get this you never have to make an appointment with your source.

Give your mind the break it deserves and needs! ALLOW yourself to be still, be present, and be now with what IS and you will begin to invite a new level of TRUTH and CLARITY into your life.

Consider these thoughts organized! :0)
