So, You Want to Be of Service

If you are feeling the tug in your heart to be of service, this is wonderful!!

That desire to be of service–no matter your industry or passion–is because there are those in the world that are calling you to serve. That calling is communicated to you through your Inner Being. If you are feeling the desire to serve others in this world, you can count yourself worthy of this great calling.

So, what is your attitude about being of service?

Does it sound like a lot of sacrifices are going to be required of you to serve others?

Will you need to sacrifice things you want as you come into service?

Will it take a lot of your time to serve? Will you need to work day and night?

In considering your service do you feel waves of exhaustion or anxiety just thinking about it?

Is your desire to be of service around volunteering, in a personal mentorship or in your business?

Wherever you choose to provide service, there are a few things you need to know before beginning.

This desire to serve is a heartfelt calling coming through your Inner Being. You are probably an uplifter, teacher, and healer at the core of your being. You have grown to the point that your Inner Being is guiding you into your life of service. But, what does that entail?  

“Service is not about sacrifice. Service is about alignment so that you’ve got something to serve with.”


I love this quote from Abraham-Hicks! It puts my mind at ease and allows me to relax as I focus on my chosen service of being a Spiritual Guide. It let’s me know I’m not alone in my desire to be of service. When I come into alignment with who I really am, I have the support and cooperation of the eternal All-That-Is! I have access to Infinite Intelligence. In my alignment I receive what I need, emotionally and energetically, to support me in serving. I actually have something to give as I serve!

If I am focused on service with the attitude that it will require sacrifice on my part, I am out on the ragged edge all alone. It takes more effort than maybe I have to give. I’m only relying on my knowledge, expertise, and human energies. Service will require sacrifice of my other dreams, time-freedoms, and possibily added financial obligations. In sacrificing my time, I may feel the exhaustion for all the effort–rearranging my schedule, talking with so many people that are needy, talking about their problems, and trying to find solutions for them.

I’m in a self-oriented, egotistical mode. I think I have to perform perfectly. I have to present myself as the expert. I have to have all the answers. I’m self-conscious. I’m tense. If I’m solely relying on my own energy and happen to be off that day, my lower vibration will be felt by my clients. I can’t be depleted and expect to have anything valuable to give.

Service from sacrifice carries so much resistance. It feels that I will be bombarded by energy vampires that are so needy and broken that I must fix. I feel I could get overwhelmed with the huge job facing me. Who will support me? Will I be out there on my own?

Whew! I’m tired just thinking about all that effort!

Now, let’s look at service coming from an attitude of alignment.

When I align first, I’m in the replenishing mode. There is no feeling of sacrifice or effort. There is ease and flow!

I’m leveraging the supernatural power that creates worlds.

I’m open and willing to relax, rest, and renew my spirit-mind-body as I approach my service.

I’m better equipped to set and hold boundaries.

When I’m in alignment I receive messages, inspiration of how I can serve with greater influence and clarity, and impulses about when and how to take action and offer solutions.

I don’t see those I serve as being broken or needing to be fixed.

I can see them clearly through the eyes of Source with Unconditional Love.

No condition has to change before I feel better about my service.

I’m energized when I talk with those I’m serving.

I see them in all their splendor of being an extension of Source Energy.

I can see them in the wholeness of who they really are.

It can actually be quite exhilarating and encouraging to me to know that their great asking has also created a wonderfully delicious solution! And, that we can find it together!

That’s when the fun kicks in!

Their aha moments are so exciting! Witnessing their transformation is so satisfying and fulfilling. That’s something important to celebrate with them. When those we serve find their alignment, we have co-created amazing things in this world. The mass consciousness of All-That-Is has expanded. Everyone and everything has benefitted from our expanded alignment.

We are new people. We are the newest version of our expanded Selves!

How exciting to know that we are participating in the expansion and evolution of All-That-Is!

So, if you’re feeling tired, exhausted, and feel that the energy suckers are draining you, maybe you’ve approached your service from an attitude of sacrifice instead of alignment.

Alignment is the replenishing mode and in that state of being, no one can deplete your energy unless you allow it by coming out of alignment.

What can you do to serve from a place of alignment instead of sacrifice?

Here are a few tips….

  • Daily, spend time meditating and quieting your mind for 15-20 minutes. When you stop thought, you also stop resistant thought. Your vibrational offering will raise into your natural alignment. You will feel good which indicates you are in alignment. Sacrifice is resistant thought and you can know this by the bad feeling it induces!
  • Listen for guidance from your Inner Source for impulses to act or speak–what to do or say and when to do it. When the impulses come, do it, say it!
  • Focus on those you want to serve as whole beings of perfect, pure Light and Love instead of as being broken or someone you need to fix. Look at them for who they really are–extensions of Source Energy.
  • Talk more about their possibilities, solutions, what improvement has been asked for–basically their what and why. What do they want and why do they want it? We always want something because we think we will feel better in the having of it. Feeling good is the basis of every desire!
  • Notice how you’re feeling prior to serving. If you’re feeling anxious, depleted, resentful, worried, a need to be the perfect mentor, or that you have to supply all the answers–please step back and find thoughts that bring YOU relief. Go meditate. Take a nature walk to replenish. You will have nothing to give them if you are in sacrifice mode. Alignment first! Then service!
  • Focus on the goal of aligning first so that you have the capcity to help soothe them into their alignment. You cannot soothe them from a place of not being soothed yourself. If there is tension in you, that vibration will be interpreted by them and it will cause them to put up a barrier. They cannot achieve their alignment if you are not aligned when you engage with them!

People are not looking for you to solve all their problems. They are not looking for you to empower them. They are wanting to discover their own empowerment in finding their solutions with your guidance. That’s what we all came here for. To find our own power within. We came here to experience as much joy as possible. It’s the at the core of our being. Joy is who we all are! We deeply desire to align with our own empowerment and do for ourselves what we came here to do. When we attain alignment, we are in full empowerment and joy-mode!

It may seem that people want you to solve their problems and just hand them the answers, but if you do that you are doing them a great disservice. Your service will never be enough. And, eventually, they will resent you and you will resent them. Trying to fix someone you consider broken is not healthy, nor sustainable.

You cannot please every client or mentee. You may have to ask difficult questions. You may be directed by your intuitition to talk about some really difficult things to bring them to accountability or realization. They may get really mad at you. It’s okay!

Don’t allow their reaction to knock you out of alignment. Maintain your alignment and keep feeling good. Understanding that they may be on the verge of their breakthrough and resisting it!

The words you’re saying don’t teach no matter how inspiring. Only their life experience teaches. Your only job is to make sure you are in alignment as you engage in your service. As they feel your alignment, they may apply the words you’ve offered and find their own joyful alignment. Because one day, they will profusely thank you for being there for them. For holding that space for them, energetically. For believing in them even when they didn’t believe in themselves. For soothing them long enough that they found their Inner Alignment!

You will feel rejuvenated, refreshed, relaxed, and exhilarated. You will feel uplifted and joyful. You will have more energy with that good-feeling alignment that you, too, will see shifts in your own life. Your alignment will benefit every area of your life as well!

This can be the amazing result of approaching our service with an attitude of alignment first!

Remember, those we serve are a mirror to things we may need to shift in our own lives. Especially if we are seeing the essence of the same thing over and over. If we see resistance in them, it may be an area we have resistance in ourselves. We’re all in transformation. We are not above transformation just because we are the ones in service. Let’s apply what we are teaching to our own lives. When I serve and feel resistance, I know I’m preaching to the choir.

As always, it is my great honor and pleasure to be of service to you! It is my hope that you gained insights into how you are approaching your service.

Let’s remember, alignment first, then service! No sacrifice required.

To your joyously aligned service,

Mary Ann Pack

Your Goal? Feel Good!

“If you had one goal, and that was to feel good, you would never again need to hear another word from anyone. You would live successfully and happily and in a way of fulfilling your life’s purpose ever after.” ~Abraham-Hicks

Just imagine! If we could all just make feeling good our number one goal in life, we could live happily-ever-after!

What would feeling good look like to you?

What would your life be like if you felt good  most of the time?

What would you be, do, and have as a result of making feeling good your number one goal?

Let’s talk about what a goal like feeling good looks like.

This is what MY goal to feel good would look like. Maybe some of it will resonate with yours. If not, use my examples as your jumping-off place to create your own vision of what a life of feeling good would look like!

  • I would love life even more! I would experience more joy every single day!
  • Even when sh*t hit the fan, I would appreciate that the contrast I was experiencing was valuable in that I get to choose what I do want because I’m seeing what I don’t want.
  • I can appreciate the moments of feeling bad, because I know my emotional guidance system is working well, indicating the direction I’m heading.
  • I can nip-in-the-bud any doubt or fear because I feel the discomfort of not knowing, thinking, and feeling like my Inner Being.
  • In those doubtful or fearful moments, I can immediately shift my thinking and tell my new feel-good story. The more I tell my good-feeling story, the more I will begin to believe it!
  • Feeling good indicates my alignment with who I really am as an extension of Source Energy.
  • I would feel the harmony of the wholeness of who I am as the physical-me and the spirit-me.
  • I would have amazing things arriving in my life experience on a daily basis.
  • I would feel so satisfied with everything and everyone.
  • Yet, even in my satisfaction, I’d know there would be so much more out there for me to explore. create, and receive!
  • I would have perfect timing. I would meet the right people at the perfect time. I would say the right things. I would be in the right place at the right time which would lead me to something wonderful.
  • I would expect good things to come to me as quickly as I’m ready to receive them.
  • I would let everyone else off the hook, knowing that only I am responsible for feeling good.
  • I would not feel the need to be in control of everyone or every situation around me.
  • I would feel safe, secure, assured, invincible, confident, clear-minded.
  • I would make decisions easily, knowing there is no risk, ever.
  • I would love everyone unconditionally–never demanding a changed behavior from anyone I observe so that I feel better. I would allow them to be who they are.
  • I would have doors and opportunities opening up for me from which to pick and choose.
  • I would have the best relationships, deep and enriching, fun and exciting.
  • I would experience peace and calm in my mind and soul.
  • I would look for everything that pleased me.
  • I would look for more things I wanted to be, do, and have.
  • My finances would be abundant. My bank accounts would reflect my abundant happiness.
  • My health would be fantastic. I would feel really good, physically. I would be strong, flexible, and at my naturally happy weight.
  • I would be living with very little resistance, so my discomfort level would be greatly diminished.
  • My beliefs would change into ones that were for my highest good, that would match my desires, that are calling Life Force through me.
  • I would feel my expansion and growth and be eager for what’s coming next!!

In this listing of what my goal of feeling good would look like, I chose more general statements of good-feeling. It’s imperative for us to get feeling good in general before we move into the specifics of feeling good. This gets our momentum going steadily before we add more specific details.

Once we are feeling really good, that’s when we know we are aligned with our Inner Being (who we really are). In these moments, that’s the time to move into more specific thoughts about what we want.

Don’t get your thoughts about your desires and what you want get out ahead of your alignment of feeling good. If you prematurely address your desires before you’ve created a vibrational environment to receive, you will introduce resistance that will slow down your process of receiving.

Stay focused on what makes you feel good. Notice throughout the day if what you’re thinking feels satisfying or feels unsatisfying. At the moment you feel dissatisfaction, change the subject to something that easily brings you satisfying feelings.

Why does it even matter if we have a goal of feeling good?

Feeling good is a vibrational quality that matches your desires. Everything you want is vibrating at a good-feeling energy level. If you can achieve feeling good most of the time, you will shift your vibrational offering to such that the Universe must yield to you everything you desire. Not all at once, of course. We don’t eat everything we want for a lifetime in one sitting. We don’t breathe in all the air we will need for the rest of our lives.

We receive nourishment and air as we need it–as we’re ready for more. The same goes in the Universe. We get to enjoy blessings all along the way. As we live a life of appreciation and focusing on what’s going right that feels good, we are well on our way to receiving our desires that create a really joyous life experience!

We came into this time-space-reality to experience as much joy as possible. The more you choose the goal to feel good, the more you will experience real joy!

New eBook: Thriving Beyond Autoimmune

Our natural state is that of well-being! I whole-heartedly believe this. Our body’s health condition is dependent upon so many factors. Primarily, though, our body’s health condition has simply responded to the vibration of our thoughts and emotions.

Of course, there are other secondary factors like the environment, our lifestyle choices, our diets, and our genetics. As a whole being–body, mind, spirit–we need to address every area of life to achieve our well-being.

I wrote this ebook to bring you to hope when you feel hopeless. I see you. I hear you. I am with you. I was in a place very much like what you may be experiencing.

This ebook will be a bit different from other books. It is written directly to you–as if I’m speaking with you sitting in my office. This is not a book full of information only. Of course, it contains information but it, also, contains my heart, knowledge, wisdom, and compassion.

I’ve spent the last 26 years researching and learning about wellness. It has been my joy to see others respond to their own transformation in creating a healthy, vibrant life! I hope you enjoy the following excerpt from my ebook!

At the end, I have a complimentary offer for you. Let’s take a peek inside my book!

Support from Our Heavenly Parents

The family photo attached to this post is circa 1961 when I was barely 2 years old. We were on our way to Easter service. My mother was a homemaker and delighted in sewing our clothing. Typically, Momma would make her dress and all of our dresses and even coats to match for these special holidays. My sisters were identical twins who were 2-½ years older than me. Being the baby of the family, I had a lot of input on how I should and shouldn’t behave.

My parents have both passed, as well as, my eldest sister who is standing next to Papa. I, of course, am in the middle of the photo.

I recently had an epiphany about how our non-physical, heavenly parents see us continuing to live our earthly lives. I was always taught that we live one earthly life and after that, the judgment–as if there’s some kind of finality of our lives. We get one chance and then it’s eternal rest or eternal damnation, so we’d better get it right. I was, also, taught that once people die, we can never communicate with them again. And, that they do not have access to see what’s going on in our lives on Earth because it could make them cry and there are no tears in heaven.

I don’t believe that we, on earth, are disconnected from our heavenly family. I believe we come into physical lives and return to Source multiple times. We are eternal beings. Being eternal, I’m thinking it would get really boring to live in pure bliss all of the time without any adventure of experiencing contrast and getting our hands dirty with life experiences over and over.

Deciding to come into our physical bodies was precisely because we wanted to experience the contrast that causes us to ask for improvements and make our preferences known. Creating new things by making choices is required for the expansion of the eternal All-That-Is.

There are certainly too many confirmed records of children remembering who they were in a past life and researchers being able to confirm their previous lives. In a book that I read by a professor, I believe it is the University of Virginia that has thousands of these confirmed cases in a research department. Books have been written about confirmed past lives. So, I believe we come and go as many times as we choose.

I, also, believe that since we are mostly non-physical (eternally spiritual) in nature, even while we are in physical bodies, we have access to All-That-Is. We have access to Infinite Intelligence, which is all those who are with Source Energy in the non-physical realm.

As I was saying, I had an epiphany, recently, and wanted to share it with you. It may resonate with your soul, too. Here’s how that went….

While I drive I make it a practice to focus on things I appreciate. The other day, I was appreciating and thanking the Universe for all that is going right in my world. I was appreciating all the wonderful things happening in my life. Somehow, I got on the subject of my parents. They have both passed.

The thought came to me that parents are no longer disappointed in me. They are no longer scolding me for doing something wrong. Momma is no longer saying, “Oh, Mary Ann!” with such disappointment and worry in her voice because I had just answered her question if I still believed in Jesus in a way that could cause me eternal damnation in her belief system.

I heard, “Oh, Mary Ann!” a lot growing up. It was really difficult for me to conform to all the religious dogma that was held over me. I just didn’t resonate with all those do’s and don’ts. There were just so many! More don’ts than do’s–for sure.

But, no longer. Momma and Papa are not worried about me anymore. They have no disappointment in me. They are happy and in their complete bliss. They are now supporting me and what’s important to me. They are showering me with unconditional love–I don’t have to change to be loveable to them. They are proud of me and what I am doing here.

I understand that Momma and Papa raised me the best they knew how. They raised me with the knowledge they had at the time. Granted, I didn’t make it very easy for them in this life. I came into life with the knowledge that life should be fun. Something they had forgotten along their path. So, it was difficult for them to understand my desire for freedom to do things that felt good to me and to think my own thoughts.

I always likened my life to that of a butterfly being stuffed in a box. I felt stifled and constricted. Feeling this way did not make for a happy child. Being told there were so many things I wasn’t supposed to do or that were a sin, I didn’t understand because they felt good to me.

But, no longer. My parents are happily watching me with great interest in what’s important to me. They are rooting for me in everything I do. They are on my side, supporting me. They understand my new beliefs that are for my highest good. They understand there are no beneficial beliefs that could restrict us in any way. They are freed from religious dogma and only look at me with adoring, unconditional eyes of love. They are encouraging me to live my life in full-out joy!

They, now, understand and encourage my freedom to choose anything that makes me feel good. Gone are their beliefs that we all must live by a certain ancient book’s teachings. They understand and encourage new thoughts that create expansion and evolution.

They are excited for me, being on the leading edge of thought, and creating the life of my dreams! As I create my reality, it’s not just me expanding and evolving–All-That-Is is expanding and evolving–including my heavenly family!

Even my husband, Randy, says he can feel the presence of my Papa with him as he works on building cabinets or other woodworking projects. Papa was a finish carpenter. He was skilled and very talented. He had amazing ways to perform his creative building projects. He created gorgeous pieces of custom furniture, beautiful cabinetry, and home renovations. Randy has always worked with steel. He is proficient at welding. He had never been a wood-worker. So, working with wood has been fun for him as he discovers new ways to make pieces more beautiful. He says he hears Papa giving him ideas to make his woodworking easier. Papa drops hints as for how to make something more beautiful. Randy says he sees Papa’s grin as he experiences those aha moments.

It’s been quite a relief to finally look at who my parents really are. When I stop looking at them as they were in this life full of resistance and restrictions and recognize them in their non-physical state, they are amazingly supportive of us! What a delight to finally see that I’m no longer a disappointment to them. I’m not dying and going to hell because of my beliefs, I actually bring them joy!

It’s a relief to know they are no longer trying to control me or hold me under their thumbs. Trying to make me into something I am not. They are allowing me the freedom to live in my joy–however that shows up for me!

They completely understand the guidance I enjoy with my inner emotional guidance system. They are encouraging me to make feeling good my number one priority and to notice how I feel so I can make changes in my thoughts and beliefs to accomplish that good feeling, consistently.

They know we are not here for service or sacrifice, but for joy. Any service will come through joy. There is no sacrifice but to let go of the past–if that can even be a sacrifice when it is so beneficial. They know we are here to create our own realities and not force our lives into the box of religious conformity. They know we are safe and there is no risk in our choices. They know there are no bad or wrong choices. They know we can’t get it wrong because we will never get it done. We are eternally growing and expanding. They are excited to witness my expansion, because it benefits them, too!

I love knowing they are fully engaged and interested in what’s important to me! They are flowing to me unconditional love, well-being, appreciation, adoration, guidance, and peacefulness. They, now, get to see me fully through the eyes of Source.

If you have been feeling the ache of missing your parents because they have passed, know that you still have access to them. Actually, you have more opportunity to tune into their energy stream because they are non-physically focused and have no restrictions of time-space. If you will stop looking where they are not and look for them where they are as non-physical, eternal light and love beings, you will be able to feel their presence and tap into their wisdom and guidance.

They are not dead. Their body is gone, but they are far from dead. They are eternal beings, just as you are an eternal soul-being. You are connected with them, now, more than ever! 

Our loved ones who have transitioned back to non-physical have no resistance whatsoever. They have released all the resistance they carried through their physical lives. So, if your family members were not necessarily the kindest in the bunch, maybe even abusive, know that all that is gone. That mean family member is now in perfect bliss and perfectly loving. They have returned to who they really are. They are no longer bound by the choices they made in life. They are free to love and adore and appreciate the whole of who you are, too!

I so appreciate this new feeling of support from my non-physical parents and other loved ones. This is another reason I know that All is Well!

It’s None of My Business!

Not too long ago, I made a visual reminder for myself to keep my cork floating. To remind myself how easy life could be if I would keep my hands off what’s none of my business! To practice the ease and flow of an aligned life.

In other words, it’s natural that our cork should float easily downstream to everything we desire. It’s only when we stick our nose where it doesn’t belong, that we drag our cork underwater or try forcing it to go upstream, against the current. When we fight and struggle against any current, we will get nowhere…fast.

But, if we only perform our work of knowing our what and why–focusing on what we want and why we want it–then our cork will gently bob, naturally, along the surface in a fun and exciting ride to our dreams downstream.

Anyway, I took a small jelly jar and put some water in it about half full. Then I dropped a wine cork into the water and fastened the lid. I did this to have a visual aid to remind me the only way my cork will float freely is if I keep my hands off of it!

The minute I touch my cork, it is restricted and will not float freely.

Our cork floating, energetically speaking, is non-resistant thought-vibrations. It’s the time we are happy and relaxed and carefree. It’s when we are aligned with who we really are. It’s when our Inner Source is guiding our steps with ideas for inspired action.

I am a forgetful person. I forget to keep my hands/thoughts out of Source’s business. Source’s job is to tend to the how, when, where, and who of what I want. I know my job is to decide what I want and why.

What I want is pretty easy to decide. Even the why’s are easy–because my priority is to feel really good. I like clarity, fun, adventure, excitement. Because, I like peace and calm, exhilaration, joy, confidence. So, why I want something is easy to determine. I like feeling good and having this or that will feel really good!

So, when is it that I hold my cork under the water?

I hold my cork under the water when I stick my nose into the job of Source. It’s when I think I must micromanage the greatest, wisest, most loving, all-knowing manager! As stated previously, Source’s job is the how, when, where, and who of what I want. It’s Source’s job to manage how it comes, when it comes, where it comes from, and who will bring it.

When I’m looking over the shoulder of Source and can’t see the progress of their work–I get all sideways in the stream. I pull my cork under so fast. As my cork disappears under the water, I can’t breathe!

The longer I hold myself down, the worse I feel. Relief only comes when I let go and my cork naturally bobs back to the surface! Ahh! That’s where I belong.

When I let go of the work that is none of my business–the how, when, where, who–my resistance subsides and my vibration raises. This is the sweet spot of entering the vortex–of my alignment with who I am as an extension of Source Energy.

When I am in alignment, I am in the vicinity of everything I want. My vortex is full of all the good stuff I’ve put there. It’s encoded with my vibrational DNA and waiting for me to prepare my vibrational environment to receive.

When I’m dabbling in things that are none of my business, I’m taking on jobs that are above my pay scale. My sole work is to create a life of joyfulness. I’m definitely not joyful when I’m sticking my nose where it doesn’t belong. It makes me ask questions I have no answers for–which leaves me feeling confused, doubtful, vulnerable, uncertain, and not trusting.

I’m drowning myself by holding down my cork. When I let go and get hands-free, I bob back up to the adventurous ride downstream to everything I desire. Life feels like ease and flow, joy and happiness, smiles and laughter, clarity and openness.

All possibilities are open to me!

It’s all about keeping my nose out of what’s not my business and allow Source full reign of the how, when, where, and who to my creation of what and why!

All is Really, Really Well!

To you joyful, bobbing cork,

Life is a Treasure Hunt!

“All is well with you. Things are going to get better and better and better.

Just don’t rush it.

Don’t push it.

Don’t try to take score.

Don’t try to make it happen.

Just trust that it will happen, and watch for the evidence, for the signs of it happening. Have fun with it.

See yourself on a sort of treasure hunt, where the Universe has buried some treasure and you’re not sure where it is or how great it is, but you sense that it’s there, and just sort of start tippy-toeing through looking for a piece of it here and a piece of it there. And you will discover it.” ~Abraham-Hicks

After meditation, recently, I came across this quote from Abraham-Hicks, my beloved mentor. It inspired the following journal entry. I hope you enjoy it!

I am on a treasure hunt with the Universe! I know the Universe has all kinds of delightful gifts for me. I know they are there because I can feel them.

I feel excited with great anticipation of finding each and every thing! As I expectantly look for signs and clues as to where they are, I get even more excited.

I know they are spectacular things because I’ve put them in my vortex when I ask for my desires. Everytime I make my preferences known, the Universe takes note and prepares that gift just for me!

So, they are everything I want. It’s simply so much fun to keep an eye out for them as the Universe shows them to me one-by-one. I don’t want all of them to show up at once because then it’s game-over. And, I’m definitely not ready for the game to be over!

I want to find pieces of my treasure bit-by-bit. Some small, some huge. A little here, a little there. They are all pieces of my treasure!

The Universe loves to surprise and delight me. I love receiving gifts. The Universe knows exactly what I want, so I  know I’ll get what I really desire. No white elephant gifts or gag gifts that are simply useless. Just everything I want. And, many times, the Universe will throw in extras that I’m not even expecting!!

Life is getting better and better and better!

It’s like giving the Universe my shopping wish-list and knowing everything on my list has been purchased, gift wrapped and tucked into a special hiding place. No one else gets to find my gifts, either.

So, when I see someone else find a gift that may be similar to what I’m wanting–I can rejoice with them because I know that it is not from my treasure trove. They have chosen what gifts to put into their treasure. I can be super happy and excited for them to have their gifts!

It’s so freeing to know that I don’t have to keep score about who’s getting what. There’s always more than enough to go around. There’s never a shortage of similar gifts!!

Everyone’s gifts are theirs, alone. Each gift has the owner’s name imprinted on it. I can’t get theirs and they won’t get mine. There’s never a mix-up or back order.

I’m so satisfied with all the gifts I’ve received so far, and yet, I’m eager for more! This joy is the best part of my treasure and I get to open this gift every day if I want to!

My gift of joy is not hidden away, but laid out in clear sight for me to pick up and open every single day!! The joy is what I came for. The other gifts are bonus treasures!!

Are you opening your gift of joy every day? Just look and you will find it!

Our Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

Every major civilization in history has recognized hemp as #1 on its list of important plants. The ancient Chinese, Indians, Egyptians, Assyrians, Persians, Greeks and Romans all revered hemp as an incomparable source of food and medicine. Now modern science is validating what the ancients all knew — and uncovering exciting new discoveries about hemp and the Endocannabinoid System.


We are hard-wired with a system of cannabinoid receptors throughout our brains and bodies. When these receptors are activated, they enable two-way communication between body systems; something previously thought to be impossible.


So what does it mean to literally have a cannabinoid system inside the body? It means that we were designed to regularly supply our ECS with the nutrients it was designed for, in support of vital communications between the control centers of the body and every other system.

However, due to the governmental regulation of hemp and cannabis over the last 80 years, most humans living today have gone their entire lives without feeding their bodies these raw materials.

Imagine a large orchestra, and the members being made to play their instruments while blindfolded. They can’t see the conductor and they can’t read the music. Sometimes they get it right, but most of the time it’s a mess. This is your body without the nutrients provided by hemp. Bringing the body back into harmony could be as simple as replacing this lost nutrition.

Why No One Has Ever Died from Hemp

There is one place in the body where there is no endocannabinoid system and no cannabinoid receptors – the brain stem. The brain stem is the control center for the heart and breathing. This means that it is not possible for cannabinoids to overwhelm those systems and cause them to shut down. This is why, in more than 4,000 years, no one has ever died from consuming hemp.

endocannabinoid system explained

The original article may be read here:


The endocannabinoid system in our bodies are for the purpose of homeostasis–bringing our bodies back into balance. When we are out of balance we can begin feeling the effects of dis-ease (an uneasiness in the body, an imbalance). Many times, this imbalance is the effect of nutrient deficiencies.

Having been unable to feed our bodies from the hemp plant for the last 80 years in the USA, there are millions of people who may be suffering from deficiency at their cannabinoid receptor sites. The commuication highway has broken down and is in need of repair. If you are suffering any of the following health issues, you may be deficient in cannabinoids provided by the hemp plant that has recently been freed by the Farm Bill.

Here are a few of the health issues that may respond well to the use of cannabinoids (CBD):

  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Inflammatory conditions
  • Insomnia
  • Workout recovery
  • Anxiety
  • Pain, Joint pain
  • Arthritis
  • PTSD
  • Migraines
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Crohn’s
  • Inflammatory Bowel Diseases
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer

When our body’s ECS is offered the proper nutrients from hemp, it may assist our natural restoration of homeostasis. Our body stops fighting itself and balance can be restored easily and quickly.

There are no known toxicity levels for taking cannabinoids from hemp. Because there are no cannabinoid receptors in the brain stem, which controls the heart and breathing, they cannot be adversely affected by the use of hemp.

With zero-to-minute amounts of THC, there is no risk of getting “high” because there is no pyschoactive components (THC) in industrial hemp grown specifically for high CBD and zero-low THC.

Through my office, I provide clients and customers the best CBD Hemp Oil in the industry from Elixinol™.

Choose from many different delivery systems of full-spectrum (whole-plant) hemp:

  • Tinctures
  • Exact delivery pen
  • Drops
  • Liposomes
  • Capsules
  • Skin balms
  • Lip balms
  • Seeds
  • Even pet treats for your furry family member!
  • Coming in January 2019 is their Sativa skincare line!!!

Elixinol’s™ quality and value are second to none!

Elixinol™ uses as much of the plant that is vital, so you can trust that you are receiving a full-spectrum hemp oil, not isolates that so many companies produce. Elixinol’s™ extraction method is a solvent-free Super Critical Fluid Extraction (CO2). In other words, it is a cold process where no heat can damage the oils, nor do they use toxic solvents. This is so important when choosing a hemp oil company.

They also utilize third party laboratory testing to insure that every batch is pure providing certificates of analysis for every batch. Their transparency and integrity are top in the industry.

All of these qualities were important to me as I researched and chose the company to provide hemp oil products for you, my clients and customers! I love that these products are safe for our children, too!

Personally, I use the liquid Respira in GrapeMint orally and by vaping, the capsules, the liposomes, and my favorite is the Hemp Balm for any skin issues. Each delivery system has its benefits. This photo is of a few on display in my office.


If you are wondering if hemp oil could help you, it is best to make an appointment to discuss your holistic coaching plan. Many times, there are other deficiencies in your diet, as well, that can be adjusted before beginning supplementation.

Many of my clients and customers are long-distance so we have our appointments via phone or Zoom and their supplements are shipped to them. My online store is still under construction at the moment, so be sure and watch my website for details.

Be Happy Rather Than Being Right

Recently, I experienced some contrast in a relationship where, initially, I just wanted to be right. I didn’t care how I felt–I WAS RIGHT!! You know the feeling. You observe someone’s behavior and just knew they were wrong and you were right!

Well, I thought about all the facts that I knew and how wrong the other person was for behaving in the manner they chose. I had it all worked out in my head. My thoughts were reeling and so were my emotions!

It came on me one night right after my justification process had really gained momentum, when I awoke from sleep. I had not practiced my usual round of appreciation before going to sleep, because I already had been thinking about the situation before bedtime. So, I was already in that negative momentum of thought.

As I laid there awake, my mind went right to where my thoughts had been. It didn’t feel good–but I was right!! I had all the reasons their behavior was bad. If I’d had someone to talk to in that moment, I’m sure I could find someone to agree with me. I had every justification of how badly it affected me. How it might drive a wedge between us. How it could potentially be hazardous to their health and longevity–which were valid concerns!

Why do we do this to ourselves?!

Why do we insist on being right when being happy would be so much better?

I will admit, I am getting better at letting sh*t go that I really have no control over. Which is, basically, everyone and everything else, except myself!

Anyway, I got up and sat in the living room for a couple of hours. I was still stewing, but I wanted to feel better. I knew this was not the way to handle this situation. Insisting that you are right and they are wrong is rarely is the most beneficial approach! Again, I knew I wanted to feel better. I recognized that what I was doing was just stupid. This attitude stemmed from old, limiting beliefs that didn’t allow for everyone to be their own person and make their own personal choices. Yet, I wanted to soothe my emotions. I wanted to feel better about this person.

I believe we tend to think someone else’s behavior will affect us adversely. We are in a lack-mindset when we enter that realm of thinking. We believe that the Universe can’t really keep us safe. We don’t really believe we create our own reality and have attracted these kinds of situations upon ourselves. We don’t believe we have the infinite resources to back up anything we desire. We believe we have to control the other person’s behavior to protect ourselves. That it’s too risky to trust the Universe with our relationships and let ourselves be the individuals we are in the moment.

I wanted a harmonious relationship. I wanted to be happy when I observed this person and held them as my object of attention. I wanted to feel the unconditional love that I know Source has for each and every one of us–no matter what’s going on. I wanted to feel happy, again!

Practicing what I know about the Law of Attraction, I chose to think some thoughts that brought relief, like:

  • All is really well, here.
  • There’s nothing really serious going on.
  • Source does have my back and is tending to all my desires–even this one.
  • I don’t have to figure this out this red-hot minute.
  • It’s more important that I feel good. That’s what I came into this life for–feeling joy!
  • I didn’t come here intending to teach anyone a lesson or demand others to live in a certain way that only pleases me.
  • I came here with the intention to experience freedom, growth, and joy.
  • Then I went into a list of appreciation about everything I could think of.

Relief came quickly. I went back to bed and slept well until morning.

When I got up, I saw a quote from Abraham-Hicks, “I’d rather be happy than be right.”

They were instructing us on the ways of creating better experiences for ourselves. They consistently teach that how we feel is the most important practice. If we want to feel good most of the time and enjoy a good life, we must make feeling good our number one priority.

We can only feel good by thinking good thoughts that align with our Inner Being of Light and Love–who we really are.

Being right and feeling like sh*t just doesn’t do it for me!

I jotted down that Abraham quote in my calendar that day. I wanted to remind myself that being happy is the most important and is the most beneficial thing I can do for the situation. Being happy is living the example before those observing our lives. It’s the only way to have a good influence on anyone!

Not only will your emotions thank you, so will your body. All that negative tension and stress shuts off our cells’ communication with Source and they cannot receive the well-being they are asking for. If you continue insisting upon being right rather than being happy, your body will begin suffering and will diminish in health. Then you’ll really have something bigger to complain about.

Here are a few tips for improving your thoughts about a similar situation you may have encountered:

  • When contrast appears in your relationships, you know what you don’t want and immediately know what you do want–what improvement you would prefer.
  • Thank your emotional guidance system that is working by indicating which direction you are heading. Feeling bad = heading into more unwanted; feeling good = heading into what you do want.
  • Make a list of things you appreciate about the person you have been observing. When you are away from them (this is key) and can allow yourself to focus on positive aspects of them, write all those down and feel that good feeling about them.
  • If the hurt has too much momentum and you can’t focus on anything positive about it, change the subject! It doesn’t matter the subject, as long as you can find relief!
  • Appreciation and finding positive aspects about anything and anyone is beneficial for every aspect of your life–even this relationship situation.

Why go through the torture of insisting on being right? Stop being offended and allow the other person to be who they are at that moment. No one is here to make you feel better–that’s your inside work. The best thing you can do for youself and anyone else is to choose to be happy–no matter what!!

How do you know if that choice to be happy isn’t the very thing that will settle the situation?

At least, you won’t keep attracting that behavior because you’ve chosen not to give it so much of your attention and energy. It’s amazing what a little happiness will do for living a joyous life!

So, make it a point to choose to be happy rather than being right!
