✨After a Hurricane Comes a Rainbow- Katy Perry🌈

rainbow, mountain, clouds, ordinarymiracleoflife.com

🍀I have been waiting for the PERFECT time to post this story… the PERFECT time is NOW…But, in my own Hurricane, I’ve managed to lose my previously written words and story that I had written months ago!

Why do I want to share today?

1.) 🙏Hardships: Through hardships, I was again gently reminded of how an AMAZING song and the impact of others (whether they know it or not) can help one get through a moment, a day, or a lifetime in a better way!✨🍀

2.) 💐Suicide: Someone VERY close to me recently decided to seriously attempt to take their own life. It had a profound impact on me… Realizing that we need to continue to come together to help those in need. Well knowing that at some point in time, EVERYONE needs help, support, love, and unconditional understanding. Truthfully, prevention is the key, because in my heart, suicide is NOT an option. Everyone has so many gifts to share with this amazing world and others… Sometimes it just takes a little time to discover them. I can assure you that with time, each hardship can teach one very important lessons of life…

3.) 🌈 Move On: Despite our own hardships and storms, we need to constantly discover new ways to help us through with the ultimate challenge of moving on to the greater gifts of life!!!

4.)💫✨ When I write, it helps me refocus and enjoy life in another way… Again! Writing is almost as great as meditation… It helps me re-center my life and my soul.

So, I will try to re-tell my story knowing that I don’t need to say too many words because Katy Perry really says it all in the song, “Fire Works” that I will link!

😢 Bottom line… I was in tears… Crying on the floor in my basement bathroom.

My life I felt was a mess! My house was a mess! I was behind in everything! I was in the middle of a non-stop downward spiral!

Financially… We were losing everything, the economy had hit rock bottom and we part of it! Emotionally, I couldn’t seem to pull myself back together. No matter what I did I continued to get worse and worse!

At this exact moment in time, my daughter walks into the bathroom… I knew I should pull myself together…, but, I couldn’t. It wasn’t in me… No matter what anyone had ever said to me… I couldn’t do it… I didn’t have enough energy… Even for my daughter.

😢I just sat on the ground and cried… And cried… And cried…

Retrospectively, why did I perceive my life to be in such a huge downward spiral… But, really my life was and is amazing. Why couldn’t I see this at that time??? Why was I mentally so weak?

“Mommy, let’s go outside and play,” my daughter responded.

Nope… I couldn’t pull out of it… I sat there and cried and cried.

Suddenly, my young daughter, started to sing “Fireworks” by Katy Perry… Over and over again!

Tears rolled down my eyes… “Yes, I am paper thin… Drifting through the wind!!!”

As she sang it over and over… I realized something so important…

Yes… This is a moment in time that is extremely difficult… But, Yes… I am beautiful, amazing, and a unique “Firework”!!! Ready to learn and grow from hardships… I had to immediately choose to change my mind set.

✨But… “Only I could ignite my own spark!”💫🌈

I suddenly stood up… My daughter walked over to me and wiped the tears from my eyes…

I realized that I had to CHOOSE to be stronger then my own Storm… And CHOOSE to create my own happy and peaceful LIFE!!

✨Most important was for me to learn and grow from my hardships… And, to CHOOSE to be a better person and ENJOY and APPRECIATE the GREATNESS that I already had!!!✨

If I focused on ALL the hardships… My life was Hardships!

✨🍀If I focused on ALL the Great… My life was GREAT!💫✨🍀

It was up to me!!!

🎉And at THIS EXACT Moment in time I decided to make a 360 degree turn and change my life for that day! Realizing that I will always have ups and downs… But knowing that is up to ME to choose how I will respond and ultimately experience my life! 🎉

✨What I have learned is that for each hard time that I am able to get myself back up again… The next time is easier… Easier because I have learned from before and know there are so many different tools to help me! I trust myself and the universe to give me what I need!✨

So, today… I encourage you… With all of my heart💝… To REALLY LISTEN with ALL of your SOUL to Katy Perry’s ABSOLUTE and AMAZING song, “FIREWORKs”!!

Be honest with yourself! I can assure YOU, that YOU are a “FIREWORK” and that YOU should let your FIRE SHINE!!!!

💫YOU ARE PERFECT and AMAZING just the way YOU ARE!!!💫

✨With Much Love and Light to Katy Perry and her ENTIRE crew! Sincerely, thank you for helping me change my life with your work!!!

Fill Your Life With Goodness and Love

Today I was very tired, irritable and really not feeling well. I had worked numerous days in a row and I had a list of “To Dos” at least a mile long. I really was unable to see any down time in the near future and I was a bit frazzled. I really felt frumpy, unhealthy, and unhappy.

What was I to do?

Instead of having a bad day… I made a decision to change the way my day was going!!

“Our job as humans is to hold onto the thoughts of what we want, make it absolutely clear in our minds what we want, and from that we start to invoke one of the greatest laws in the Universe, and that’s the law of attraction. You become what you think about most, but you also attract what you think about most.” –John Assaraf in The Secret

For every negative thought and feeling that came to my mind I gently became aware of it… I observed it… Then, I gently shifted my perspective to a more positive mind set- I consciously made the choice to change. Even if I had absolutely no idea how I could move my mind set from one spectrum to the next… I just had to take the step and believe.

You see, if a negative cycle exists, the only way to stop it is to immediately shift your mind set from negative to more positive. If you keep feeding negativity into this cycle, it keeps perpetuating itself.

Sometimes you just have to “Fake it until you make it!!” Create what you want… Believe it… See it… And with time you will begin to live it!

Be aware that for every End there is a New Beginning!… But, we never know the duration of time it takes to skip from the end to the beginning… It may be 1 second…It may be 1 year! We can not control time, but we can control our mind!… If we choose!!

When you notice negativity, be aware of it… but, gently choose to be love, to send unconditional love and positive thoughts. Notice the negativity starting to soften and ultimately begin to resolve.

Often, negativity or insecurity stems from feelings of lack of love. It’s really simple… Just be love. Without anyone else, you can surround yourself in love, be love, and even send love from your heart anywhere! There is truly unlimited love in this Universe and Everyone has free access to it!

You can count on family and friends for love. But, what if their time is a bit off your time? It is so important to not only receive love from others, but also to be able to give and receive love from yourself at ANY time!

I think many feel a sense of guilt for allowing themselves to feel love, peace, and happiness… It’s almost as though it’s difficult for many to accept that they truly are intended to experience joy and love.

But, I can assure you that we are intended to feel and experience peace, love, joy, and happiness… We really just need to stop and just let it flow into our entire being!!!

“There is a deep truth deep down inside you that has been waiting for you to discover it, and the Truth is this: You deserve all good things life has to offer”. –Rhonda Bryrne author of The Secret.

💫So, today, I really encourage you to say, “This is My Day!” Or… Even as simple as, “This is My Moment!” I have the Power to control my own mind!💫

A wise friend of mine recently told me, “Instead of restricting yourself from what you shouldn’t have, you should consider increasing your thoughts of what you should have and what is good for you!”

Example… “I can’t eat this or that… It’s not good for me.” Change the way you think… “I will eat a little more of this because it is good for me!” With time, you will be spending more time eatting what is good for you and what isn’t good for you will just get less and less because you aren’t giving it as much energy!

Example… “I’m really in a bad mood today and everyone is driving me crazy!” Change to “Just for this moment in time I feel a little down… I don’t have as much energy as usual. I’m going to be gentle with myself while I’m in this space… It will pass. I easily send love and energy to myself. I will enjoy more healthy foods and hydration. I’m sending love to the people I interact with today. I’m going to do something nice for myself and others as simple as a gentle smile.”

Begin to bring more goodness to your life. As you bring more goodness to your life, the bad or negative will slowly begin to dissolve.

It truly amazes me how this works… The more you do it the easier it gets. As you fill up with love and goodness for yourself and others you will be surprised how you experience life!

A gentle shift of your intention can change your life and the life of others!

Begin to think more of what you are grateful for today! Continue to discover the beauty in all… 1% at a time!!— it is there! you will find it!

Shift your thoughts to more goodness… One thought at a time!!

Be very gentle with yourself as well… Some days are much easier than others to focus on the good. Begin your journey with just becoming more and more aware of your thoughts.

“People believe that if we really want to eliminate something, focus on that. How much sense does it make for us to give the particular problem all of the energy, as opposed to focusing on trust, love, living in abundance, education, or peace?”–Lisa Nicholas in The Secret

So, just for today, I made the decision to be of love and happiness… And to shift my thoughts one at a time. By doing this, I ultimately was able to receive the goodness and happiness that the world has to offer.

“Whether you think you can or think you can’t, either way you are right.”
–Henry Ford

“To acquire love… Fill yourself up with it until you become a magnet.”
— Charles Hoanel in The Secret

Enjoy your journey!

Easy Meditation. This Universe– by Singh Kaur

Meditate?

Have you ever heard: “Oh.. everyone should do it! It is so great for you! It has so many benefits! It will change your life!”

So… I sit down, cross my legs, close my eyes and suddenly… I’m meditating and everything is great! My mind calms! I love it! I want more!

Wrong!!! Not for me anyway!

All I remember is everyone telling me how great it is… how it would benefit me!! But in reality, it didn’t seem to benefit me a bit!! I was uncomfortable, thoughts and worries filled my mind! I never wanted to do it again!

Then… one night, I was overwhelmed with worries, thoughts, and responsibilities. I was not enjoying life a bit! I was getting frustrated with my children, my home and my life! I had enough! I asked my husband if he could watch the kids for 15 minutes so I could spend some time alone. As I sat in silence on the floor of my bedroom, I realized that I needed to find another natural way to calm my mind and bring peace and quietness to my heart.

I began searching for songs on my iphone that were relaxing to me. I came across the song, “The Universe” by Singh Kaur… I plugged in my head phones, turned out the lights, laid in bed with my legs uncrossed, and my arms softly along my side. The music began playing.

I quickly noticed thousands of thoughts and tension throughout my entire body. I laid there and thought….”what in the heck am I supposed to do!!?” I guess I should get up and get things done! “No!…. this is my time and I deserve it!” So, I decided to give myself just 15 minutes to relax… let go of everything….just for this brief moment in time!”

I surrendered. I began noticing the beauty of the music. I began noticing my breath. I began to notice tension and calm in different areas of my body. I began noticing thoughts. Tension throughout my body began to soften. I acknowledged my thoughts… but, gave myself permission to let them drift just for this brief moment in time– realizing that I had no intention to solve anything for just 15 minutes! My breath started to become softer and softer, more and more fluid. As I slowly inhaled, I noticed that my breath was starting to calm my entire being. As I exhaled, I noticed tension and worries begin flowing outward— gently, slowly, softly away from me… even more… and even more.

As time passed, the music became more pure, more vibrant, more beautiful, more peaceful. Slowly I noticed the words and how they were intended for all… for me… I noticed myself becoming more and more calm, more and more still. Thoughts began slowing… tension became less… it was almost as I was becoming lighter and lighter…even more and even more…

Suddenly, I opened my eyes and realized what had happened to me. I was at peace. I was calm. It was beautiful. Could this be meditation? 20 minutes had passed. I granted myself permission to close my eyes again and listen to the music again. This time… releasing, relaxing and calming even more.

That night I slept like a baby! I woke in the morning and felt calmer than usual. It was the strangest thing… I still experienced my day and thoughts as usual, but… my baseline of peace, calm, joy and seeing the beauty in all was magnified…by maybe 1%. As time passed, I found myself asking for short periods of time alone…to listen to music, calm my mind, and release worries and tension to the universe. Sometimes I didn’t get anywhere.. and sometimes it became more and more beautiful!

Still to this day…I know a place that I can go that is peaceful, calm, all loving, and ultimately recharges my soul, my life and my spirit!

T.S. Eliot once said, “I said to my soul, be still and wait without hope, for hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love, for love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith, but the faith and the love are all in the waiting. Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought: So darkness shall be light, and the stillness the dancing.”

May you give yourself permission for just 15 minutes! Enjoy!! bmj
