New Outlooks 2016

  Once boundaries are forgotten, your potential is boundless.By Kimberley Dunsmore 

You are more than capable to be the “change”. In this new year step outside your comfort zone, and start each morning with positive intentions. Life is only as good as you make it.
Much Love and Happy New Years!

Pretty Thoughts

Creating your own joy, is about perception, the way you think and feel about the situation you find yourself in.

My favorite saying during difficult times is, “This too shall pass”. 
Even the most heart breaking moments will have a profound positive effect on your life, only if you wade through the emotional turbulence to the full process of healing the pain. 
Try to see the event as an entire rotation of a clock. At the 12 o’clock point is the impact of trauma. This is where the crisis management begins. 

Traveling towards the quarter hour is where, while in the state of shock, you are processing the damage that has occurred and may even forecast misery yet to come. 

Moving through to the half hour mark is where your mind, body, and soul will experience pain. Allow the pain, feel it and experience it. To shut your feelings down will only slow your healing process, causing a festering wound to your soul. This is were many remain, in their feelings. Stuck in feelings such as loss, despair, defeat, unjust, or even the thought of deserving such pain, will set up for long term ramifications. 
Approaching and moving towards the restructuring of your souls state of homeostasis, where joy and happiness can be felt and even become substantial. This last quarter of this journey is where you realize life continues. You are stronger and have the knowledge and experience that you are capable of making it through anything. Embracing faith, love, and compassion will be keep you afloat during truly trying times. 
Talk your feelings out with somebody, a professional can offer you tools and coping mechanisms you are not aware of. My experience with therapy has proved that speaking aloud to an empathic ear can give you insight and a new perspective on life.

I Love You!

Love… I keeping running into this word, sentiment, emotion, act… At this moment, I cannot call to mind any other word/entity that holds such power. Many of the people I am drawn to, to help have many issues revolving around Love. In fact, every one of their root problems start in and of love, or more so the lack of presence love has in their relationships. Whether, perceived or factual, the thought that one has no one to love them brings such pain it causes a ripple effect of devastating proportion. Thus, tainting all relationships including the relationship with self, with pain and discontent.

Love yourself fully, include your flaws (I prefer to call them unique character traits). Set a morning affirmation, something like “I love myself and everyone fully, I receive love fully from self and everyone I love.” Then, end the day with a prayer of gratitude.

Give and Take part 2

By Ameeta Kaul

Note to Readers:
1. If you would like to be taken off my mailing list please let me know and your wish shall be my command with immediate effect.
2. Everything I share comes from my own personal experience. I can only point to things that I have done myself, and were then seen through! Here is how the contemplation on giving and receiving came to rest within me. I remain open to new learning.
————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

In Part 1, this question was raised: Would you like to be on the receiving end of what you give?

What we give may be material or immaterial
What we give may be in kind, word or deed

We don’t simply give what we are giving
We also give how we are giving

We don’t simply give what we are giving
We also give the attitude with which we are giving

We don’ simply give what we are giving
We also withhold what we are withholding

Externally we may be giving one thing
Internally we may be giving its opposite

When we give with our whole being
we receive simultaneously in full measure

Be aware if your giving
separates you from the receiver
Be aware if your giving
comes from pity or disdain

Be aware if your giving
reinforces your position
vis-a-vis the receiver’s
aggrandizing the giving
lessening the receiving

Ask yourself also:
Would you like to be
on the giving end
of what you receive?

Ask yourself also
Could you be
on the giving end
of what you receive?

In receiving
there is gratitude
in giving
there is joy

Each one of us
gives and receives
This is simply
the sacred way of life

As human beings
it is our great good fortune
to be able
to see
to realize
to know
and to be
the one movement
that is both
giving and receiving

Bio of Simone Allison Healer Of The Heart

Hi everyone I’m the lady with the big heart that will love you and encourage you no matter the circumstances. I’m here to empower that beautiful light that we are all born with.

What makes me be able to say this, Is I myself needed to be reminded of how bright that light really is. We are all born with a special gift that some of us needs a little reminder we still have. I will not only encourage you but also help you to understand how beautiful you are in and out. This process is not something that will happen over night. Like anything in this world it takes a lot of LOVE, UNDERSTANDING AND PATIENCE. You’re not going to like the feeling of discomfort, but as we all know with growth comes growing pain. It’s a wonderful feeling to have that pleasure of just being.
