Push Through Fear?!

“There are those that say, if you do the uncomfortable thing long enough, it will become comfortable. But we are really not encouragers of that. We are encouragers of coming into alignment, and then taking the action. We are encouragers always of getting rid of the fear; we would never want you to keep doing things that you feel fearful about. And maybe the path of least resistance is just not get on the horse. Maybe the path of least resistance is to get on a different horse–but we would never move forward in fear.” ~Abraham-Hicks

So many people believe we need to push through our fears. Whether we are attempting something new in our business, relationships, or even for personal growth. I believe this is a false premise that we need to change.

In a universe governed by Law of Attraction, pushing against anything only attracts more of the same into our experience.

Well-being is our natural state. Fear is resistance, which is an abnormal state of being! When we are in a state of fear about anything it is our indication that we are not aligned with who we really are as extensions of Source Energy. We can know this by how we feel. Fear causes us to feel bad. That bad feeling indicates we are heading in the wrong direction–towards what is unwanted or the lack/absence of what we want.

What is fear, where does it come from, and why do we experience fear?

  • Fear is resistance to what we really do want. We doubt we can really have anything we want to be, do or have. Doubt is always resistance!
  • Fear is resisting the love that is our natural state. When we don’t believe ourselves worthy, we are denying love that is flowing to us non-stop from our Inner Being.
  • Fear says the risk is too great. Fear wants you to weigh all the pros and cons before you move forward. Or, will simply freeze you in place. Yet, alignment with your Inner Source brings complete peace of mind, knowing there is no risk–only adventure and ease and flow as you utilize the leverage and resources of the powerful Universe.
  • Fear causes us to procrastinate. Then we beat up on ourselves for not overcoming this fear and makes us feel weak. That is certainly NOT who we are!
  • Fear exists in our lives when we are not aligned with our Inner Being–who we really are. Our Inner Being is always believing everything good about us–never criticizing us, never worrying about us. When we contradict what our Inner Being believes about us, we begin to fear and that feels like sh*t!.
  • Fear is being under the influence of others’ opinions or outside forces that we cannot (and will never) control. Fear is worrying about what others will think of us and making their opinion greater, more powerful, and valued higher than our own opinion.
  • Fear causes us to take things personally. That is giving away our power to someone who really doesn’t care that much about us anyway! They are worried about their own fears.
  • Fear is what kicks in when we try hard and take action BEFORE we’ve aligned with who we are. We are relying on our efforts of pushing harder, working harder, plowing through, under, over or around. All this effort of action is counterproductive because we’re not aligned. It’s like beating our head against the wall. We don’t get very far, fast!

Why do we continue to live in fear and feeling bad?

Fear and feeling bad become a normal feeling for so many of us–when, in fact, it is abnormal to our true state of being. We become accustomed to the bad-feeling of fear and get really good at coping with it. Yet, we can still feel the discomfort of the discord with who we really are–on the Inside. Anytime we are in fear, our Inner Being believes something totally opposite to what we believe about ourselves when we suffer in fear.

It’s all about how we think. It’s about our perspective. The only thing we ever have complete control over is our thoughts! So, let’s get moving in the direction of what our Inner Being believes, thinks, and feels about us so we can feel better and live in love–without fear!

We are powerful creators. We are invincible. We have the power that creates worlds at our beck and call. There is no risk. Absolutely nothing to fear!

What influence are we under?

Remembering who we are as powerful creators, who came here in this time-space reality to experience as much joy as possible, is where we should reside. We have unlimited access to Infinite Intelligence at every moment, so why do we accept living in a state of abnormalcy? Why would we continue to think in ways that make us feel bad?

If you are one who believes you must push through your fears, I’d like you to consider changing your beliefs to these that will make your fears fade into oblivion.

  • You came here with a triad of intentions: freedom, growth, and joy. There is nothing in those intentions that includes living with fear.
  • Beliefs are simply thoughts we repeat to ourselves. It’s time to change your beliefs about your life and tell a new story.
  • Everything always works out for you! Knowing this helps you relax and listen to your Inner Being’s leading for what to do and when to do it. You’ll receive inspiration and impulses to act when it’s the right time.
  • You are an extension of Source Energy which means you have access to the power that creates worlds! This power does not know or feel fearful in any way.
  • Everything is already in place! You have already laid all the groundwork of asking for your desires. They are waiting for you to get ready to receive.
  • Source Energy has heard all your requests and is tending to the work of putting it together for you! It’s waiting in your vibrational escrow account. Now it’s time for you to feel that joyful vibrational energy of what you want and hold that feeling as long and as often as you can so you’re ready to receive it.
  • Ease and flow comes when we align, first, BEFORE we take action! We must wait until we’ve quieted our minds and listened for inspiration or an impulse to act upon.
  • Alignment first brings the leverage of the power that creates worlds. Source’s got our backs!
  • If rejections come, if bad opinions come from others, it’s not as big a deal because we are secure in who we really are. Others’ opinions don’t matter when we are aligned. We need no one else’s validation to proceed with our inspired action. We know we are clear about what we are doing because we still feel good!

Are you ready to quit putting up with fear and the bad feelings it induces? Are you ready to live fearless and joyful, knowing full-well that you are invincible and powerful?

If you want to live without fear and replace it with self-love, it’s time to accept who you really are. Once you practice feeling good about yourself and get more consistent, you’ll begin to notice that next time you are faced with something new or something unknown, you’ll feel more relaxed, confident, adventurous. That anxiety and panic of fear is lessened or non-existent. You may even turn it into a game so that it becomes something fun!

Connecting Intellect with Emotion

There are times when we know things intellectually but don’t feel we know them emotionally. It feels like a head-heart disconnect.

Many times we feel that we know things intellectually. We know the steps and processes. We know how to do this or that, or why this or that happens. We know this or that resonates with our soul. We know it feels real or rings true to us. It just makes sense to us when we think about the subject or principle we have learned.

We know how to think rationally, but sometimes it doesn’t feel like we know things emotionally. It’s almost like we understand concepts and principles in our head but we can’t seem to get the application into our hearts.

It seems we understand the how-to but don’t get the feeling-of what we are pondering.

I listened recently to a video by my mentor, Abraham-Hicks, and it clarified my understanding which I’d like to share with you. Abraham explained that this belief of being intellectual vs. emotional understanding is bogus. It’s a belief that we picked up along our path. It’s just words that don’t mean anything. It’s just rhetoric that we picked up from others who were not connected to their Source.

Abraham explains that to know something intellectually you must know it emotionally, otherwise there would not be a resonance with it. You don’t resonate intellectually with anything that you have not experienced emotionally. There can be no understanding of something without the feeling of it, first. Remember, we are vibrational being and must connect emotionally with any subject for it to make sense and resonate with our spirit.

We can only understand something intellectually because we have felt it emotionally, first. That’s what made it truth to us. That’s what made it feel like it made sense when we heard it. Emotional connection to something gives us the opportunity to resonate with it intellectually.

We are touched by something emotionally when we hear it before we can believe it intellectually. Words don’t teach, only life experience teaches. Experiencing something emotionally connects it to us intellectually so that we have something to focus our attention upon.

So, when we feel a bit disconnected with our heart as we think about a subject intellectually, we need to focus on what we want and why to receive the clarity that the energetic work provides.

Alignment with Source brings the intellect and emotions together in harmony. Sometimes, we think our intellect gets dry and drags us into resistance before we notice. The passion seems to be lost. There’s no fire anymore.

At the moment we do notice resistance, it’s time to change the subject to get back to a better-feeling place. It’s time to align our energy with that of our Inner Source.

When we align with our Inner Being, spending time in meditation, the passion is reignited. The intellect is fired up! The new ideas begin to flow. Inspiration brings impulses to act. Now, when we think about the subject, our intellect is excited and exhilarated. Our emotions are heightened. We feel the juices flowing! Our emotions and intellect are in harmony and balanced.

If your intellect is feeling a bit dry, if your emotions feel a bit numb, it’s time to reignite your passion by spending time doing the energetic work of connecting to your Inner Being. Your Inner Being knows everything about you and what you want. Your Inner Being is calling you to the wholeness of who you really are–emotionally, as well as, intellectually.

Once you feel the alignment with your Source and can hold that feeling steady for a while, it may be time to revisit the subject you have been intellectualizing and feel the delight of it. Your alignment will ignite your emotions, which will fire up your intellect–which, in turn, excites your emotions further. It’s a never-ending cycle of feeling, thinking, receiving inspired impulses to act, perfect timing, manifesting, to feeling good, to thinking….

Just know that you cannot separate intellect from emotions. They must work together. If it feels like intellect is dry and boring, it is because you need to come back into alignment with your Inner Source. If it feels like old news, it’s because you may not be applying it to a life experience so that it can teach you something new.

Rest assured that when your intellectual knowledge feels disconnected from your emotional knowledge, you can reconnect them harmoniously by aligning with your Inner Source. Focusing on your what and why will always bring you back into alignment. It’s always beneficial and exciting to think about our what and why.  Leave the how, when, where, and who in the capable hands of Source.

Take time to connect with your Inner Being and fall in love with the ideas on which you are focused by harmonizing your intellect and emotions!

Which Comes First…Sowing or Reaping?

While I was on a recent work-cation in the beautiful Boston Mountains of Arkansas, the fall colors were magnificent! We had glorious days of fall sunshine. During the days of cool, rainy weather, I read Dani Johnson’s book, First Steps to Wealth in front of the crackling fire. If you haven’t read it, get it now!* No spoiler alert, but this book will change your life in every area! Wealth is not just about money–it’s about wealth in relationships, time, finances, health, and our spirituality. Dani makes this very clear.

Okay, so that was an “Oh look, squirrel!” moment! Ha!

Anyway, Dani teaches her 12 laws of success. One of them was the Law of Reaping and Sowing–rather than Sowing and Reaping as we’ve always known. I understand that we do reap what we sow. I love that Dani changed it up so that we focus more on what we want, then we can be more precise about what we sow.

It feels to me that sowing and reaping has a bit of resistance in it. Sowing and reaping seems more like the concept of karma. It’s having to watch out what you sow because you may not like what you reap!

By changing it to Reaping and Sowing it feels more intentional, more purposeful, more deliberate. It asks the questions, what do I want to reap? Now, what do I need to sow in order to reap what I want? It compels you to focus more on what you want first, and then, sow specific things to receive your desire with intentionality.

When focusing on what I want to reap, and experience the feeling of having it before it comes, assures that my alignment will urge me to sow good things that match my reaping desire. It gives me the right impulses to sow at the perfect time in perfect ways. It relies more on the energetic work of aligning with what I want (reaping) and then taking action (sowing) after I’m already in alignment with my Inner Source. That order resonates more clearly with my soul.

If we know what we want to reap, we will sow only those seeds that will produce what we desire to reap.

Sowing and reaping is less intentional. It almost feels more like a warning. It’s being under the influence of fear and a need to control the outcome. This holds more resistance.

When we are in alignment with our Inner Source, there is never a feeling of warning or danger that we might get something we don’t want. Source is only focused on what we do want–not what we don’t want. Source is only calling us to what we want. Through our path of least resistance. Through our path of most clarity.

So, how can we focus more upon what we want to reap and sow appropriate seeds?

Here are a few suggestions:

  • Focus on what you do want and why. What benefits are there to having this desire? How will it make you feel? How will it improve your life?
  • Identify these desires as what you want to reap.
  • Now, look for ways to sow the appropriate seed to reap your desired harvest.

Here are a few examples of Reaping and Sowing:

  • You want more money.
    • Sow seeds of generosity. Look for ways to help others monetarily through charities, church, or to individuals you know that would benefit from your gifts.
    • Sow seeds of impact and influence. Offer your business services as you meet people. Expose your business to more people. Befriend people and find out what they need and want. Your business may service their needs and you didn’t even know it.
  • You want better relationships.
    • Sow seeds of friendship. Make it a point to give something to everyone you meet. Whether it’s a smile, hug, compliment or encouraging word.
    • Sow seeds of positive aspects. Focus on a person with whom you have a relationship and make lists of positive aspects about them. Things you admire, love about them, appreciate about them. This clears the path of any resistance on your part that may be holding you apart from a better relationship. Now, the door is open when they’re ready to come to you.
  • You want better health.
    • Sow seeds of self-love. Yep, you have to be selfish enough to care about how you feel. Make feeling good your number one priority.
    • Sow seeds of laughter and good humor. We’ve all heard that laughter is the best medicine. In fact, it is scientifically proven to be true. Even the Bible says that a happy heart does good like a medicine.
    • Sow seeds of self-appreciation. Focus on your body as your partner. Appreciating your body for its service to you throughout this life. Focus on what’s going right in your body. Spend less time complaining about your illness or pain.
    • Sow seeds of compliments. You were complaining about a lot of things long before you were complaining about your health. That complaining trend has created this suffering. Been there, done that, got the medical bills! So, turn your complaining into compliments! Find things to compliment yourself on or compliment others. Your attitude will improve and so will your health! Mine did!!

Do you see how each of these desires of reaping are supported by sowing seeds with intentionality?

You don’t just hope these seeds will produce a desired harvest, you are intentionally planting seeds that do produce your intended harvest. You’ll know if you are sowing the right seeds by how you feel. If you feel good about what you’re sowing, your harvest will be great!

Being Authentic or Justifying Being Mean?

When you hear some folks touting that they are just being authentic, some are using authenticity to justify being mean.

You know those who claim they are just being authentically themselves but the vibe of the conversation just feels more mean-spirited than authentic. You can feel the difference when someone is being authentically who they are or not by the vibrations they give off.

Someone being truly authentic still has a sweet spirit about them. They are kind and loving. They are generally caring and not pushy. You tend to like being around them because of their sweet, calm, uplifting attitude.

Those who claim to be authentic but are using it for an excuse to be mean are not happy, appreciative people. They don’t care how they express themselves or how it could affect another person who is listening. They just want to get their point across–do or die! Usually, it is accompanied by an increasing volume.

They are truly not aligned with their Inner Being–who they really are as pure, positive love-extensions of Source Energy. They are dwelling too long on what they don’t want in another’s  behavior instead of finding positive aspects about them and the situation. They are more influenced by conditions they see, hear, smell, taste, and touch. Rather, they should be more influenced by their Inner Being who loves without demanding a condition to change.

It’s one thing to be authentic and set boundaries and make feeling good your number one priority with a gracefully sweet spirit–but it’s something quite different to blast away at another person when they cross your invisible chip on your shoulder. When you claim to be authentic–it doesn’t give you license to be a bitch. Being mean is as inauthentic as it gets! It’s not who you really are.

What does it mean to be truly authentic in a loving way?

Being authentic is aligning with who you really are which is loving and kind. You can have boundaries and still be sweet. You can truly be authentic and let people know where you stand on any subject in a way that is beneficial to everyone. You can set your boundaries and not shut others off. Yes, we must make feeling good our number one priority but being mean and intentionally cutting someone down in the process is not being authentic. It’s simply being rude.

Of course, some folks will always misunderstand your authenticity. You can express your boundaries in the kindest of ways and others will still get their feelings hurt. We all express the behavior we want from others from our selfish perspective. Our self-centered perspective is all we have. We cannot live from another’s perspective, nor can someone else live from our perspective. That’s why we are individuals. We have our own thoughts, desires, and preferences.

When we blame others for how we feel because we’ve looked to them to make us feel better, we are looking for love in all the wrong places. We are not taking our responsibility to create our own happiness.

Feeling good is always and, only, an inside job. We must let everyone else off the hook.

How do I find my true authentic self and express it with kindness?

If you really want to be authentic, align first with your Inner Being. Ask: What does my Inner Being know, think, and feel about me and this situation? If you’ve spent time building a relationship with your Inner Being, you will receive a truly loving, uplifting answer. You will feel good. You will notice that you feel more loving toward others you have been observing. It could even be possible that there is no need to express your boundaries at that moment. You simply have moved your attention to what feels good about another person or the solution to the situation.

Remember, it’s all about self-perspective. Where are you focusing your attention? What is influencing your perspective? Are you being influenced by your Inner Being or the bad behavior you are observing that you are allowing to make you feel bad?

I’m not saying we don’t need boundaries or let others know where we stand! We don’t need to be doormats. Been there, got the T-shirt!

What I’m saying is that we know what we do want and what we don’t want. We can, also, express what we do want, over expressing what we don’t want. If we focus more on what we don’t want (the behaviors/situations that we perceived as needing boundaries for), anything we say will be filled with utter resistance and received in a hurtful way. It can–or will–blow up in your face! Let the screaming match commence!

There is alway resistance in what we don’t want. We feel we need to set boundaries to protect ourselves. When we look for areas that we feel we need protection in, we are living a life focused with resistance, fear, worry, disempowerment, and vulnerability. When we are in alignment with our Inner Being we are virtually invincible! We are receiving guidance from Within, rather than what’s happening all around us.

When we express more of what we do want, it is from a good-feeling place of authenticity because it matches the vibrational quality of our Inner Being. When we express more of what we don’t want, it is from a bad-feeling place of inauthenticity.

When you can find good-feeling thoughts about it, you know you’re aligned and feeling your authentic self. As you express your boundaries from this aligned state of being, you can cause no real harm to another. Again, you can’t control how they receive it but that’s really none of your business, anyway. Their response is between them and their Inner Being. You simply need to keep your side of the street clean.

Being authentic is expressing boundaries from the standpoint of knowing what you do want. You’re not telling someone what they can’t do anymore because it makes you feel bad. You’re telling someone what you would like, better. You’re expressing your desire for improvement that feels way better.

Here’s examples of inauthentic and mean vs. authentic and loving:

Let’s say you think your partner is being an ass to you. He/she is on your ever-lovin’ last nerve. You feel that you’ll explode if you don’t say something to get him/her to stop what they are doing. Everytime you think about them doing this irritating thing, your emotions go wild! You have to tell them to stop it, right this minute!

Inauthentic and Mean: Because you’re acting like an ass, you’re making me feel bad! I hate what you’re doing to me. When I observe your behavior, I don’t like it one bit! You’re going to have to stop doing what you’re doing, right now, or I won’t let you anywhere near me! (This is usually when the screaming begins and one or the other storms off with feelings hurt or in a rage.)

In the inauthentic example, you’ve said what you came to say. It is truly how you feel in the moment, but what did it accomplish? Anger, mean words, blame, guilt, shaming? A widening gap between partners? Many times, this approach drives such a wedge between people there can be no reconciliation–especially if this is the go-to approach to confrontations. The momentum is too great and the Universe can only obey its own laws to feel the vibration of the moment and match it with more! There is no regard to timing, probably no calm preparation. Just the blast of high emotions. You can never achieve the benefit of improvement when you are in a state of feeling bad. That is a state of resistance and nothing beneficial comes from there. Ever!

Authentic and Loving: I enjoy our time together. There are things about what you do that just pleases me so much. I really want to feel good most of the time and it would really help me feel awesome if you could not do that in my presence. Sometimes, I allow what you’re doing to make me feel bad and I know you’re not the cause of my feeling bad. It’s my perception, it’s what I think about while I observe you doing this thing. I know you love me and want what’s best for me, too. So, I would greatly appreciate it if you would do this instead, as a favor for me. I understand if you don’t want to stop doing this thing that irritates me, but please don’t take offense if I just get up and quietly walk away for a while. I’m just wanting to live a calm, happy, and peaceable life.

In the authentic example, you have already done the vibrational work of aligning with your Inner Being of love and that vibration will be dominant. Hold that good-feeling in a steady place long before you approach anyone about their behavior. When you are not in their company, make it a point to hold them as your object of attention and find all kinds of positive aspects about them that you do like–this is a very important key!

When you are aligned and feeling really good while creating your vibrational environment, you may get the impulse regarding the timing as when to speak to them–even the idea of the words to say. It will be at the right time and in the right way. That is the most effective and beneficial approach.

They may not even know it’s irritating you. From their perspective, they’re just being their authentic self! Oblivious to how it affects you. They may not be aligned with who they really are and have no recourse but to find relief in any way they can–even if it adversely affects someone they love.

Do you realize that Source loves them as much as Source loves you? Source never requires us to change to receive love. There are no favorites for right behavior. Be thankful for the opportunity to see some improvement you would prefer. Contrast caused you to accomplished a new desire of improvement that has never been before! Your Inner Being just became that improvement and you expanded the Universe!

You will only be a good influence when you are connected and aligned with your Inner Being. When you focus on what’s bothering you, you create and attract more of the same. If you really want to be a benefit to yourself and others, it’s time to do the vibrational work of aligning with who you really are. That is the only time you will truly experience the change you want to see. Get happy and stay happy!

What someone else is, or is not doing, is really none of your business. If you see someone behaving improperly, by your estimation, you know what you don’t like. At the same time, you know what improvement you’d prefer. Focus on the improved preference, the solution, the relief. When you can do that and allow the other person do whatever they want AND still be happy, you may become pleasantly surprised that the behavior curbs or diminishes altogether. Or, because you are mostly happy now and attracting mostly happy-feeling-experiences, the person may simply not show up in your space while they are doing the thing that displeases you.

Any way you approach authenticity has a lasting effect. Get to know who you really are and blossom into your authentic, loving, gracious, blessed self no matter what’s going on around you! Speak your truth in love.

We can only be authentically kind as we are tuned-in, tapped-in, and turned-on to who we really are as love-extensions of Source Energy. Then, and only then, can we live a truly authentic life!

Beliefs Must Match Your Desire

Do you have beliefs that are blocking your desires?

We have so many beliefs that are beneficial. We, also, have many beliefs that are blocking our desires. If your desire is not coming, it could be that you have beliefs that are blocking its arrival because these beliefs contain resistance. Beliefs that create feelings of doubt, fears, worry, insecurity, or vulnerability will block your desires.

Some of your beliefs may be of a low vibrational quality that do not match the high vibrational quality of your desires. Beliefs and desires must match, vibrationally. Your beliefs condition your point of attraction. If you have beliefs that feel bad, you’re only going to receive more bad-feeling experiences. You cannot get to where you want to be while your vibrational offering is a low frequency.

Have I picked up beliefs that are no longer for my highest good or that do not serve me any longer?

Of course, we pick up beliefs that don’t feel good when we think about them. They feel restrictive. They feel like we’re boxed-in. They feel constraining. But, we cannot focus on them or even try to explore them because as we look for them, our focused attention will activate them in our now experience where we are creating our lives. These will expand into blocking more of what we want. That is in opposition to everything we want! Thinking about these beliefs feel bad because they are contrary to what our Inner Being believes about us! If a belief feels bad when thinking about it, it is not our Truth!

So, what is the solution?

The solution is to focus on beliefs that really do serve us and are for our highest good. We will know when we’ve achieved these beliefs by how we feel. We will feel really good! These beliefs will feel light-hearted, expansive, and peaceful. These will resonate with our soul with a feeling of joy!

Where do I find these beliefs that will promote my receiving of my desires?

Where do I look for these beneficial beliefs?

Remember, beliefs are only thoughts that we repeat to ourselves. They are thoughts we think over and over until they become what we believe. So, they can easily be tweaked or released so new beliefs can be incorporated by changing our thought-patterns. We should be reaching for the best-feeling thoughts and repeat those to ourselves to become our new beliefs.

To find beneficial beliefs that match our desires, we must look to our Inner Being who completely and unconditionally loves and adores us while tending to our desires!

There are three questions we should ask:

  1. What does my Inner Being know about me and about this situation?
  2. What does my Inner Being think about me and about this situation?
  3. What does my Inner Being feel about me and about this situation?

Since we understand that our Inner Being is always feeling good with no resistance, we must find thoughts about ourselves and about our situations that feel really good without resistance. In this way, we can know we’re in alignment with our Inner Being.

Our Inner Being never, ever, holds any beliefs that could block our desires!

Isn’t that amazing?! Isn’t that great to know?!

Anytime we are feeling resistance of any kind and feel that our desires are being blocked, those beliefs, thoughts and feelings are not coming from our Source!

So, as we find good-feeling thoughts about ourselves and any situation we are facing, we can know and trust that we are in perfect alignment with all of our desires.

Sometime, we are hard-pressed to find anything good about ourselves or our situations. Those bad-feelings of the discord of opposition to our Inner Being is the time we need to go general in our thinking. Think general good-feeling thoughts about what we know, think and feel about ourselves and our situation.

What do I mean by going general?

When we have so much momentum going in a bad-feeling direction, which indicates that we are heading in opposition to what our Inner Being understands, it may be time to think about good-feeling thoughts that are more general in nature and not so specific to a subject.

Here are some examples of general good-feeling thoughts we could think:

  • I love knowing that my Inner Being is tending to all my desires and preparing them for me.
  • I love thinking about my Inner Being gathering all the necessary cooperative components and resources for my desire’s delivery.
  • I love feeling good, resting assured that all is really well and I can confidently leave it in the hands of my loving Inner Being to work out the how, when, where, and who.
  • I know that my Inner Being cares deeply about what’s important to me and is always calling me toward everything I desire.
  • I really like the clarity that feeling good brings to me.
  • I love the feeling of: (list all the wonderful emotional words that feel really good)
    • Fun, clarity, peacefulness, calmness, excitement, exuberance, abundance, ease, flow, perfect timing, acceptance, feeling good, laughter, improvement, relaxation, trusting, confidence, knowing, security, safety, comfort, blessedness, worthiness, love, loved, loving, helpful, adventure, prosperity, wholeness, oneness, expansion, freedom, willingness, receiving, etc.

As you spend more time focusing on good-feeling, general words, you will release resistance and blend perfectly with your Inner Being. In those moments, you have shifted your point of attraction to one of your beliefs matching your desires.

Repeating these kinds of good-feeling thoughts will turn into your beliefs and in this way you will solidify beneficial beliefs that support and enhance your desires. They will begin to match perfectly with your desires, and by law, your desires will begin arriving at the perfect time, in the perfect way. Your Inner Being is ready and waiting for you to keep up to speed and create your vibrational environment for receiving.

Every time you make an intention to focus on general good-feeling thoughts, which become your beliefs, it affects all the specifics of your desires. If you could simply feel good most of the time, you would never have to think specifically of your desires again! The point is to raise your vibrational offering and the Universe must respond in kind, giving you the essence of all that you desire!

Growth Doesn’t Require Pain!

There are those who state that we must go back into our inner child and experience the pain and traumatic feelings to heal our adult lives.

I believe this is a flawed premise!

Here’s why….

Those tremendously painful experiences of our past do not affect our now unless we invite them forward by our focused attention. Our past is old news. It’s over. We are not that person.

With every now experience, we are expanded into new beings that can never go back. We can, however, activate the past in our now by thinking and feeling it’s pain which invites the universe to bring us more. We have already asked for improvements during our painful experience and our Inner Being became the improvement!

You are ever changing. Depending upon your focus, you may indeed feel like you’re reliving the past because you keep creating the same experiences over and over by your thought-patterns. Different places, different faces, same life.

I’ll let you in on a big secret….

Source never, ever looks at our past! Isn’t that good news?! Source sees us fresh and new every moment as the person we have become–now, now, and now. Your Inner Being is already living the improvement you have asked for! So, where are you living?

Discordant feelings are your indicator that you are resisting what you do want—which is to live the improved version of YOU that you’ve already created. You are lagging behind but you can catch up!

The only way for the past to affect us now is to keep feeling those negative emotions of past hurts active, which invites more of it to expand into our now. This is working against everything we want to accomplish in our transformational journey into joyful wholeness and well-being! Which is our natural state, by the way.

The Law of Attraction is a universal premise, that which is like unto itself is drawn—like attracts like. The universe responds to our dominant thought vibrations. Wouldn’t it make sense to think more often about good stuff to receive more good stuff?

If we keep hashing over the past hurts and pains, we are activating it’s vibration into our now–where we are creating our future. The less time we spend on past pain, the less of it we will find in our now and future experiences. Pain diminishes rapidly when it’s not poked with the stick of your thoughts. It’s power reduces and dissipates until the sting of emotional pain is no longer an issue.

If we think it and feel it, we will live it! It’s time to let the past go!

So, what the hell are we supposed to do when we have flashbacks of childhood hurts or painful experiences throughout our lives and can’t stop thinking about them?

I’m glad you asked….

Let’s list 3 steps to activate a better-feeling life experience without reliving past pain.

  1.      Count your blessings! Begin a Journal of Positive Aspects or a Journal of Appreciation and write in it by hand, daily. (This, by far, has healed me the most!) Use positive emotional, feeling words as the universe understands your meaning or feeling, not your words. The more time you spend writing by hand, the longer it is that you maintain that higher vibration and a shift can occur!
  2.      Distract yourself for relief! Change the subject when troubling thoughts come up and you feel negative emotions welling up. Distract yourself with any subject that makes you feel better as you think about it. This soothes your resistance. We do this, not to belittle what we’ve been through, but to redirect our thoughts so as not to reignite the negative emotional vibration back into our creative now. You can’t deactivate an old hurtful energy, but you can activate a new, better-feeling energy to accelerate your well-being.
  3.      Practice appreciating and loving yourself by celebrating your worthiness! Louise Hay was the guru of mirror-work. If you ever want more information buy her books, Mirror Work or You Can Heal Your Life. The point of mirror-work is to rapidly notice how you feel about you. As you practice self-appreciation and self-love, the negative sting will begin to soften and you will begin to believe what you are telling yourself. This is speaking new life into your Being! Your worth and value are your birthright because of who you are as an extension of Source Energy, no matter the lies others may have told you. You can’t be anything less than worthy! Praise yourself and celebrate every little win. Look for things going right and do a little happy-dance! You’re doing better than you are acknowledging. It’s time to celebrate!!

Commit to making these simple processes your practice for 30 days. You will notice a marked improvement in your demeanor and outlook. You’ll notice an improvement in your sleep, energy level and happiness. The past hurts will lessen in intensity and seem less important in your now.

I am not discounting our efforts to heal from our past life experiences. I simply believe the process doesn’t have to be painful to move into well-being!

Moving into well-being and joy should be easy! Our joyous well-being is truly our natural state of being. Feelings of joy is natural. Negative emotions are what is unnatural to who we really are!

If our awesome Source Energy is always flowing unconditional love, appreciation, and well-being to us, do you really think Source would want us to suffer to become whole?

Absolutely, not!

Our suffering is because of our resistance to allow Source’s love, appreciation and well-being from flowing through us! Resistance is exhausting, painful, and completely unnecessary!

Life is supposed to be joyous! We are meant to live happily-ever-after—it’s our birthright. Are you ready to claim yours?

“You look so happy!” The best compliment about your happiness.

“You look so happy!”

To me, this is the best compliment I could ever receive!

In years past, I rarely received this compliment. I was too busy looking for all the bad stuff happening in my world around me and letting everyone else know.

Now that I am a recovering chronic complainer, my world is changing to compliment my new expectations! So, I love receiving compliments that I look happy–because I truly am happy!

How, you may ask, did I change?

I had to come to the place of crisis. Utter breakdown of mind, body and spirit. It became a matter of do or die. That was the turning point in my life! It caused me to look for answers instead of focusing on all my problems. I began searching for solutions. I asked for help. And, the Universe heard my asking for improvement and answered with a resounding, YES!

Initially, I had to start feeling better, physically. So, I marched myself into a health food store and told the owner to fix me. When my healing began so rapidly, I started studying everything I could get my hands on regarding every alternative healing practice I could find–herbals, nutritionals, crystals, energy work, feng shui, dowsing, other belief systems.

That opened the door for me to re-evaluate my belief system. I found that I held so many erroneous beliefs that didn’t resonate with my soul. I just picked them up along my path from influential people. As I began releasing them and choosing to believe that life was good, that I was good, that I was worthy, that life was supposed to be fun, I felt a major shift in my attitude and perspective.

I felt more energy surging through my body. I delighted in beauty all around me that I had previously ignored. I began looking for positive aspects even in the circumstances people would consider “bad” or “wrong.” I decided there was no need for me to stand in judgment of anyone else. Wow! I could let people off the hook for my emotional state of being. Only I chose how I wanted to feel. I really started looking for–and finding–silver linings!

Here’s how it happened for me. Some of this list may resonate with your life experiences.

  • Since I was seeking wellness, I asked for and received natural healing supplements, practices, and techniques.
  • I re-evaluated my beliefs and decided to develop more loving and unlimiting beliefs. I realized beliefs are simply thoughts we keep repeating to ourselves. I decided to repeat new thoughts that felt really good until they became my new belief system!
  • I decided that I wanted to feel good–body, mind, and spirit. My top priority was to feel really good–even great!
  • I started writing down all the good stuff in journals–positive aspects, things that were going right, and things I appreciated. Over and over and over. I still do! And, I always write by hand. It takes more time, so I can savor the good feelings longer, which raises my vibrational offering. Writing good stuff–WIN! Raising my vibrational point of attraction–WIN! Receiving more good stuff to write about–WIN!
  • I made it a point to drastically reduce complaining–this certainly continues to take practice! I’ve noticed the less I complain, the less I find to complain about because I stopped attracting it.
  • I paid attention to how I felt, emotionally. I knew my feelings indicated which direction I was heading–towards wanted or unwanted things.
  • If I felt bad, I changed the subject to something that felt better.
  • If I felt good, I revelled in the joy of it!
  • I started noticing when I focused on happier thoughts, more happy things showed up!
  • My health continued to improve!
  • My face started changing–the stress and anger lines relaxed. Some people started commenting that I was glowing!

A lot of times we know we are making shifts in our lives but wonder if it shows. The first time I was complimented for looking happy, I was in awe. When more compliments came, I knew I was on the right path to becoming whole, balanced, and consistently joyous!

I challenge you to institute some of these practices and see if you don’t become more happy. The Universe is always proving our own truth to us–what we believe, we receive. So, allow the Universe to prove to you that life really is supposed to be fun!

The really cool thing about shifting your mindset to look for happier things, is that it doesn’t have to be about any specific subject! You don’t have to try and get happy about a troubling subject to affect an improvement!

The more consistently you can find any simple, small, pleasurable thing to think about, it affects the big stuff, too! It’s all about the vibration. The longer you stay in a vibrational place of choosing happy thoughts, the more consistently your vibrational point of attraction will affect what you receive in every area of life–your relationships, your health, your wealth, and your spiritually.

If you’d like help with becoming happy, let’s talk soon! Visit http://maryannpack.com or http://reawakenyourjoy.com.

When you’re living in happy appreciation you are in complete alignment with who you really are.

You may even receive a compliment for looking so very happy!

3 Tips to Swap Misery for Feeling Better!

We all want to feel good, right?

So, why are so many of us miserable?

Are you feeling miserable? Does misery seem to stick to you like gum on your shoe?

As a past Queen of Misery, I didn’t know that there was really a choice. I thought you just accepted life as it hit you in the face. Come what may, grit your teeth, and bear it!

Feeling miserable actually felt normal. I believed life was hard, sometimes fun, but always difficult and complicated. And, don’t forget sickly! Since feeling bad was all I could remember, I lived on autopilot. Making decisions by default, thoughts flashing at uncontrolled warp speed, living by difficult beliefs I’d picked up along my path growing up.

I believed life was miserable and the Universe sent me proof of what I believed.

Since studying and integrating the principles* of the Law of Attraction over the last 12+ years, it has given me great insight into my previous life experiences. My attitudes sucked! So, naturally, and by law, the Universe gave me more suckiness in life! I get it now–whatever holds my attention the most is what I receive in return!

Anything we choose to believe becomes our Truth. Beliefs are simply repetitive thoughts. So, anything can become a belief as we repeat it to ourselves and then becomes our personal Truth. If we want to change our lives, we must change our beliefs. In other words, stop thinking the same crappy stuff, over and over, that brings you the same crappy stuff, over and over. Different places, different faces, same life!

Life really can be filled with joyful experiences and fun. It can be satisfying and fulfilling.

When we shift our thinking toward the positive, we will see proof that life is good! If you want a happy ending, create a happy journey!

We are actually built to feel good! Feeling good is our True Nature. It’s who we really are on the Inside. Our Inner Being–that greater, older, eternal, wiser Inside Self/Spirit/Soul–is always feeling good, always looking for positive aspects of everyone and everything, always calling us to become the more we’ve already created!

You must begin feeling better before anything can change. Your attitude must shift into feeling better before any of your better-feeling stuff shows up! Remember, like attracts like. Like vibrations attract each other whether it’s thoughts or feelings attracting what you want or even what you don’t want.

There are ways to start feeling better, now! This moment, you can make the decision to start feeling better. This may sound really far-fetched but it’s true. With a little tweaking of your beliefs, you can begin to feel better…today!

Here are a 3 tips to start shifting your misery up the emotional scale to feeling better:

  1. Notice how you feel throughout the day. Your feelings/emotions indicate the direction you are heading–toward something wanted (feels good) or unwanted (feels bad). When you notice you are feeling good–keep up the good work and keep on that thought pattern! When you notice you are feeling bad–change the subject of your thoughts! If you are new to this, you may want to set up alarms on your phone during waking hours to remind you to be mindful of how you are feeling.
  2. Distraction creates a shift in your vibrational message. Begin thinking, purposefully, upon more pleasing subjects. Distracting your bad-feeling thought pattern is the quickest way to quell that bad feeling and begin feeling better. It’s like the child throwing a tantrum and when you distract them with something else, the tantrum disappears! They become more pleasant in attitude because the distraction was something they liked better. Another example is when you’re having a really bad day and suddenly a friend invites you to a party. Wow! What a mood booster. You get excited and start feeling so much better! Distraction works!
  3. Care about how you feel. Make feeling good your absolute priority. When you truly care about feeling good, you will quickly identify what feels good to you. When you prioritize feeling good and it becomes so important to you, you will start looking for things that feel good when you think about them. You may start saying YES to things you want to do, but NO to things that really don’t feel that good. Set your intention to look for things that please you, that bring a smile to your face. Find positive aspects in everything and everyone around you. There’s always a silver lining if you look for it!

Practicing these tips will lead you to your path of feeling better, which is your path of most allowance. This is the receiving mode where all your good stuff lives, ready to come out and play with you!

The momentum you’ve created by consistently feeling good is a shifted vibrational message to the Universe to bring you more and more of things that make you feel great! Life gets simpler, easier. Life seems to flow and becomes fun!! The better you feel, the better you’ll feel!

That old miserable life seems so distant and foreign to you. Being happy feels natural and normal–as it should! Well-being is our natural state!

*Understanding and accepting these principles of the Law of Attraction will assist you with a purposeful shift in your life:

  • Accept that you are a vibrational being living in a vibrationally governed world.
  • Accept and understand, that which is like unto itself is drawn–like attracts like.
  • Understand that focusing your thought energy on anything–whether wanted or unwanted–will expand it into more.
  • Understand that your thoughts and emotions either feel good or feel bad–no matter the label used to describe the emotion–at the core, they feel good or bad.
  • Understand that when you feel good, your thoughts have been towards wanted subjects.
  • Understand that when you feel bad, your thoughts have been towards unwanted subjects or the absence of what is wanted.
  • Understand that your thoughts and emotions are vibrational messages into the Universe.
  • Accept that the Universe is interpreting your emotional vibrations as a request for more of the same vibrational essence that result in the same kinds of feelings.

Push Through Fear? NO!

A few weeks back I made a journal entry regarding a meme that caught my attention. It said, Push Through Fear! My journal entry is the featured image in this post. 

I was considering all the gurus of business and even of personal development that insist that we must “push through fear.” They tell us that it’s good for us to tackle our fears and push through them, taking massive imperfect action. It’s such a prevalent tenent of business yet it paralyzes people sometimes. Gurus teach that pushing through your fear is the only way to succeed in your business or personal life. That taking risks is what matters the most. Get out there and just do it!

I believe “pushing through fear” to be a flawed premise. Here’s why….

There is no risk or fear in alignment. Period.

What do I mean by alignment? Alignment is simply the balanced harmony with you, the physical being, and YOU, the non-physical, spiritually eternal being of who you really are. These two parts of you must be in harmony to be in alignment. You and YOU must think and feel the same way. This relationship of you and YOU is fully physical and fully eternal. When you think thoughts that feel good, you can know you are in alignment. When you are living in appreciation, you are in alignment. If you ever feel bad in any way, that is your indication that you are not in alignment with the whole of who you are.

Those who teach us to push through our fears are insisting that we continue living in resistance and not alignment. Fear is always a sign of resistance to what we want. We are focusing on the lack of what is wanted instead of what we actually want. Or, we are focusing on business that is not ours to tackle–like the how, when, where and who–which is the business of Source Energy (that Inner YOU who knows everything about what you want and how to get it to you).

Our only business is to focus solely upon our what we want and why. What we want and why it makes us feel good when we get it. We only want something because we think we will feel better by the having of it. So, what do you want and why?

When we dabble in the business of Source–how, when, where, who–we are asking questions we have no answers to and that creates resistance which, in turn, creates a state of fear. Fear is an abnormal state of being because it is in vibrational opposition to our natural state of well-being!

We cannot be in alignment with the whole of who we are with love and appreciation and, at the same time, feel fearful. They are diametrically opposing vibrations.

There is no risk or fear in alignment–we can never get it wrong because we can never get it done. We can always make new preferences and define the details of what we want. We are eternal beings–never endedness of always choosing our preferences from the contrast we live. So, there is really no risk or fear–there is simply choices of preferences. There are a myriad of options from which to choose. We could choose any of them and thrive!

Whatever we decide we want is a calling of Life Force through us upon making any decision. Now, we can make a decision of what we want and then not keep up with our alignment, our vibrational harmony with it. In that lack of alignment, it would feel like fear because we have not kept up with our desire. But, that is simply resistance which creates the feeling of fear. We cannot feel the joy of our desire AND feel fear at the same time. It’s one or the other in a single moment.

In the moment we doubt that it will work out and begin holding those fearful thoughts, it probably won’t work out. At the very least, it will slow our desire way down. Until we regain our alignment, we are in resistance to our desire and will disallow the ease and flow and feelings of safety, security, and confidence to move forward.

Resistance feels like fear that we must push through to have what we want. We are action-based beings. We feel that we must tackle it and wrestle it to the ground and kill it. We must do something! Yet, all we need to do is come back into alignment so that we think the thoughts of our Inner Being about the subject. Care more about how you feel! Your emotions are your vibrational direction indicator. We will always be able to tell if we are or are not in alignment by how we feel.

Upon aligning with our Inner Being by thinking good-feeling thoughts, we can then receive inspired ideas, visions, and impulses to act. When we act upon inspiration we are leveraging the power that creates worlds and it will be easy! It will feel good, not fearful!

Fear is resistance to what our Inner Being knows, thinks and feels about what we want and how to get it, that’s why it feels so bad. We are opposing our Inner Being. Clear up your vibrational resistance and the fear will dissipate. Any inspired action will feel like the next logical step–not something that creates fear.

Care enough about how you feel. Make feeling good your top priority. Do the vibrational work first. Don’t take action until you feel the calm and peace of alignment.

Pushing through fear is doing things the hard way. It’s like banging your head against the wall. You may accomplish moving something around but it will be very painful…and fearful!

We are here to experience as much joy as possible–not push through fear and pain!

Align first, align first, align first!

Wait until you feel the inspiration and then take that next step that feels good. This vibrational stance will leverage the power of the Universe and things will happen with so much more ease. You will not exhaust yourself because there will be no resistance. You will find yourself exhilarated and eager. You’ll feel passion surging through you! This is Life Force surging through your body providing you with well-being!

I’m NOT saying never take action to move yourself and your business forward. That is absolutely NOT what I’m saying. I’m simply promoting alignment first. Action will follow after the inspiration. When you’ve quieted your mind on a daily basis in meditation and make feeling good your priority, you will be amazed at the action steps that unfold before you. You will feel ecstatic to take action on the ideas that you’ve received from your Inner Being. You definitely will not feel fear!

Your Inner Being knows exactly where you are in relation to everything you desire and is sending you signals as to your path of least resistance to get you there. How do you know if you are in alignment with Your Inner Being? Again, by how you feel! You will feel great! Your thoughts will feel amazing when they are in harmony with the thoughts of your Inner Being.

You will never, ever experience fear when you are in alignment with your Inner Being–the whole of who you really are. If you are feel bad in any way as you approach your business or personal development, you are out of alignment. Fear, doubt, and risk are all signs you are thinking the opposite of what your Inner Being knows, thinks and feels about you and your desire.

Align first, listen, and you will receive impulses to act. It may be to call someone, it may be content for your online program, it may be the perfect idea for that lead-page or funnel, it may be to go take a walk or do something that just feels pleasing. Just follow the impulse.

The action-impulse doesn’t always have to be the be-all, end-all action that takes you straight to the big deal or breakthrough. It’s a path! It’s the unfolding of a joyous path. It really is about the joyous journey, not the destination. Be satisfied with where you are now and eager for more. Appreciate that you are on your path and expect more to be revealed to you. Relax and it will come!

The vibrational offering of appreciation and satisfaction will attract to you what you want–it’s law.

Be appreciative of what you are experiencing. Find positive aspects in the things you think you must do to progress your business or personal life. Make them a game. Find all the positive aspects you can as you approach your work. Most of all, get into alignment by caring about feeling good more and more of the time. Feeling good consistently is so important to create stability to take the next step with a joyful attitude and without fear of any kind!

There is NO FEAR in alignment. There is only knowing that All is Well!

NSP Curcumin BP – Product Highlight

CurcuminBP (60 Caps)

Stock No. 238-2

Inflammation is a great health concern for many folks. Between the stresses of life, the Standard American Diet (SAD), our pesticide and chemical laden foods, cleaning products and household furnishings, our bodies endure enormous amounts of inflammation generating contaminants.

The active ingredient of turmeric, curcumin, is a potent anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant. It helps to quiet the overactive inflammatory response in our bodies. It’s benefits reach far into the cells, themselves.

Be sure to look at the end of this post for my CurcuminBP Golden Milk recipe!!

Let’s take a look….


  • Encourages a healthy inflammatory response*
  • Supports your body’s immune, circulatory and glandular systems*
  • Helps safeguard your body at the cellular level*

How It Works:

Strengthen your Body’s daily defenses. This antioxidant-rich turmeric extract promotes a healthy inflammatory response while supporting your body’s immune, circulatory and glandular systems. Formulated for maximum potency, CurcuminBP features black pepper, which studies show enhances bioavailability. Enjoy naturally powerful results with Curcumin BP —your first line of defense for a healthier life. *


Curcumin—obtained from the rhizomes of the yellow curry spice turmeric(Curcuma longa L), curcumin has been safely used for centuries in Indian Ayurvedic medicine. A potent antioxidant, curcumin supports a healthy inflammatory response and may help with weight loss as well as support the skeletal, circulatory, digestive and immune systems.

Black pepper extract—a black pepper fruit extract from the Piper nigrum species, black pepper has been added to enhance curcumin’s naturally poor bioavailability. Black pepper may also aid with some occasional digestive discomfort and has antioxidant properties.

Recommended Use:

Take 2 capsules daily with water.

Coach Mary Ann’s Notes:

According to metaphysics and Ayurvedic medicine, inflammation is excess heat in the body. Emotionally, heat is caused by anger and rage, frustration and a feeling of disempowerment. So, we must look first to our thoughts and how they affect our bodies who are obedient to our vibrations. First and foremost, we affect our bodies by the vibration of our thoughts and feelings.

From a holistic healing approach, if you are suffering with inflammatory illnesses, you may want to look first to your dominant thought patterns as the culprit. Support your body by choosing a more positive outlook on life and begin to look for every little and big thing you can appreciate. Make lists and lists, every day, of things you appreciate and the positive aspects of every event, circumstance and situation in which you find yourself. There is always something to appreciate. When you begin to really start looking, even when it’s only little things, more things will start coming to mind and that feeling of appreciation will gain momentum until you find relief from feeling bad and start to feel really good!

Next, consider using food as your medicine. Nature’s Sunshine Products offers one of the finest curcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric) supplements, because they have blended it with black pepper to increase bioavailability. Since turmeric is naturally not as bioavailable for our bodies’ use, NSP included black pepper into their blend of curcumin to activate the bioavailability and our bodies reap the benefit.

If you suffer with inflammation in your body, consider purchasing CurcuminBP. You may also want to consider making my CurcuminBP Golden Milk recipe for a single serving:

Combination in a sauce pan:

  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1-2 tsp. coconut oil (your preference if you’d like more)
  • local pure honey, to taste
  • Ceylon cinnamon, ground (start with a pinch, add to taste)
  • 3-4 capsules of CurcuminBP (opened and emptied)
  • Put sauce pan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and briskly whisk while simmering for 2-3 minutes. Pour into a mug and enjoy!!
  • The CurcuminBP will not stay blended. It will film on the top, but that really hasn’t bothered me. You can stir it every once in a while as you sip it’s yumminess!
