I start this day as a new slate, a new beginning
I am not my past, nor am I my present
I am more than skin & bone
I am sunkissed skin on a warm day, warm & inviting
I am a walk on a crisp autumn day, breathtakingly beautiful
I am the stars you gaze upon, claming your soul & making you feel at home
I am everywhere, I am everything
For I am love
I’m sure everyone has heard “You grow up to be like your parents”. Most of us say, I will never be like that but then we grow up and we actually do become them. We may notice it in little things that we do, or how we do things. For instance, my mother has always cleaned her sink. As a child and even as a teenager I thought that was so weird, why would you be worried if your sink is clean or not? Now that I own a home, I too clean the sink. I did it a few times without even taking notice but one day I stopped dead in my tracks and thought, oh my I’ve become my mother. I was shocked but then started to laugh, I had always thought this was so weird but here I am doing and enjoying it; thinking to myself this sink has to be spotless.
Now that I have done a week of soul coaching it has brought to my attention some issues that I do that I wasn’t even aware of. This made me think, there are so many things are parents do that we obverse, and view as okay behavior. Even if we learn later that this behavior is not acceptable, we still (more than likely) will repeat it. While doing my lesson for yesterday one of these truths came forward and for the first time I noticed something about myself that I had never seen before. As most of you know I am married, my husband loves me very deeply and I him. I know that he wont leave me, so because I know this there are often times I am mean to him because I know I can be. I know that this is no way to treat someone that you love, and that loves you but for some reason I do it anyways. The reason, I was shown this behavior as a child, I picked it up and thought it was okay and have being doing it ever since. I always thought my actions were beyond this but here I am, seeing the truth. It sucks to know that I am hurting someone I love for nothing. So, I took the steps to change it. Since I am now aware of this, I can be more proactive when I get upset to say to myself “Why am I doing this? Is there a reason behind it? Do I mean it?” I told this to my husband, apologized for being mean and told him to tell me when I’m being mean because often times I don’t know when I am.
We pick up good and bad habits form our parents; we watch everything they do and for the most part what to grow up to be like them. So as you grow and learn be sure you are aware of the person you have become. Make sure that it is your trustiest form of yourself and not the reflection of things you’ve been taught. Brake the pattern, take the steps to rid yourself of the things that do not serve your highest potential.
I was recently in search of a gemstone bracelet that was fashionable but also used the stones I love. I have had gemstone bracelets before but the stones were square and would jab my wrist when I would write. So I looked around at what gemstone bracelets were out on the market. I came across Third Eye Gemstones. I looked at their website and started to read about the company. With every bracelet bought they donate money for 30 days of clean drinking water to someone in need. So I thought “If nothing else at least I will help someone in need.” I browsed for a while at all their selection of bracelets. I finally choose the karma cleanse bracelet. This one has Black Agate, Howlite, and Snowflake Obsidian. I got my bracelet in a large size since I don’t like them tight around my wrist. I have had this bracelet for a month or so now, and I still love it as much as I did when I first got it. I love the fact that its high quality, fashion and you help another in the process.
If anyone of you are looking for a gemstone bracelet I highly suggest you go to thirdeyegemstone.com and check out their selection.
Why do many of us live no life at all? We grow up, go to work at a job (most) of us hate, get married and have kids. We work our lives away for things we are told we should have or that we “need” and then we die. What kind of life is that!?
Working is a important part of life, we need to make money to have anything in this world. However, so many of us have a job for the paycheck. We are not passionate about what we spend so much of our time doing, and for some working at a job you hate can really be soul sucking. Sucking away every little bit of yourself, until you are sick or absolutely measurable. I am one of these people. I worked at a job for three years that was only supposed to be a temp job. I hated the work, it was physical in the summer which killed my physical body. It was mindless and boring but it was easy, and a paycheck. I enjoyed the hours, and that it was part time so I got comfortable and stayed. It was until recently that I decided (with the support of my husband) that enough was enough. I took a huge leap of faith and left my job. I had no idea what I was going to do next to make money but it didn’t matter to me. As soon as I quit I felt a weight had been lifted off my shoulders, and started to feel better. I no longer had to go to a job that did nothing for my spirit that did nothing for me as a person. I focused on recovering from the damage that had been done to my physical body, and getting back to a oneness I had once had. That is when I noticed just how draining it can be to go into a place day in and day out that you hate, doing the same things over and over again. Seeing the same faces of people that you for the most part can’t stand or have no respect for. I have found my focus, and is this blog. My passion for writing has been life long, and my life’s mission is to help others. So why not help help others with my words. I am still blown away that my words inspire others, and help them. I am humbled and in awe by this. I have been through a lot of things in my life and I just hope to help another not make the same mistakes as I did or to simply know that they are not alone, ever.
So my message to all of you, live the life you want for yourself. Spent money on experiences not stuff. The memories you make on new experiences will be more fulfilling than any material item could ever be. Travel, see the world. Let the cultures of others open your eyes and your perspectives. Spend time with the ones you love, and the ones that inspire you. Be kind, be gentle, and above all love yourself. Radiate love through you, so you can spread that to others. Anything that doesn’t bring you joy or happiness doesn’t belong in your life.
Just remember to live simply, and to simply live.
