Still Time for Reflection!

                         Create Space for Personal Power to Increase

Autumn has always been a poignant time for me .Growing up in Newfoundland, summers were short and autumns not dependable: often fleeting and uncertain as the grip of winter often takes over as early as Halloween. Even today as I write you from Alabama, in sunshine, the poignancy remains. A Nat King Cole, “Autumn Leaves” kind of poignancy.

GRATITUDE

There is more to being grateful   than the thanks we give, when we get what we desire. What about the things that did not come our way, by the grace of God.  Because the desire was formed with pride and ego, we could have been crushed and we were spared.

Can you get up in the morning, after no sleep and feed the children, to start the day with gratitude?

Can you be grateful for your confusing fog of not knowing which way to turn, which may be protecting you from stepping too quickly, or going in the wrong direction?

Powerful Questions helped me in my struggles

Laura: Just wanted you to know that your “Powerful Questions” E-Book, has helped me in my struggles to feel better about me and my life.

I keep a copy of it on the arm of my mediation chair. Every morning I allow the book to fall open to the Question that I most need to reflect on that day. If it is the same one as yesterday, that’s ok. I figure that means that I have some more work to do in that arena.

Do you Cling to the Familiar?

Having spent my early years on an island off the coast of Newfoundland, I remember well the ferocity of the Atlantic Ocean beating against the rocky cliffs along the shoreline. Often birds flew into and nestled on the barren ledges, hanging on, with their bodies shivering. Some of the birds nestled in places where they would continue to be battered at the mercy of nature’s fury. There might have been a ‘soft place to fall’ just beyond those ledges; however  they like us, stayed, struggled and shivered in scarcity because it was familiar.

The Wisdom of the Question!

Do you willfully turn away from the asking?

Are you in a “rut,” ignoring the inner pull towards truth and change, while clinging to an illusion of safety and security. All the while; you know  that you  are in a grave act of denial and the  charge connected to this distress will have consequences. We cannot gain freedom by denying or wishing.

For Women Only

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I have had a front row seat, to observe the many ways women sabotage themselves when it comes to having more of what they want/need in intimate relationships.

Manifestation: The Law is Always Working

Why am I getting Muddied Results?

We manifest in our lives whatever we give our attention and energy to or focus on, positive or negative. The Law is always working whether we are consciously directing it or not. The outcome of the Law is influenced by many factors however the following three are important to remember.

Desire is the force which sets energy in motion

Fear is an obstacle by which the current is stopped or completely reversed (turned away from us)

Doubt; at best doubt muddies the waters, Doubt is that place we go to when we have an inner glitch or stopper that delays us due to feeling a lack of worthiness in regards to attaining what we desire.

Is Your Mind Stressing You Out?

(Some tools to get beyond the struggle)

An English poet John Milton said the mind can create for us our own personal heaven or hell.  I know from personal and professional experience that we can use  the mind as a terrible weapon against ourselves, or find in it a loyal ally.  Because we do not control the mind, most of us allow it to control us with it tending to swing back and forth, if not exactly heaven or hell, a lot of time is spent in purgatory.   We have in our life story, experiences of the mind being the ally and the sabotager.
