Make “You” Number One this Year

Make “You” number one this year. It is so easy to focus our time and energy away from ourselves.  Our jobs, caring for family members, etc can be very demanding and stressful. Staying healthy during stressful times is challenging. Stress in and of itself takes its toll on your mind, body and spirit. Disease and physical ailments thrive during times of stress.  

To remain healthy it is important to take time for your self - - away from stressful events. 

Everyone relaxes differently. For some, listening to good music is relaxing. For others enjoying a peaceful tranquil scene is relaxing.  Know what makes you feel good – and honor that.

To remain healthy it is important to nourish your self – with great healthy foods. This does not mean you have to become a vegetarian. Although becoming a vegetarian is not a bad thing. This means feeding your self foods that provide sustainable energy and fuel for cell regeneration. There are many superfoods  out there like EgyptianRenewMoringa  -- which contain a powerhouse of plant based nutrients.  Adding these superfoods to your diet will help you to feel better and deal more efficiently with day to day stress.

You owe it to yourself to experience moments of joy each and every day. You owe it to yourself to eat healthy. You owe it to your self to make “YOU” number one.

Commitment - The Door to Personal Goals

Commitment phobia can interfere with accomplishing your goals or having a satisfying relationship. Some people do not even realize they have commitment issues. Yet the signs can be quite obvious to their associates.

"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in ones favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's couplets: 'Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it! Boldness has genius, magic, and power in it.” --W.H. Murray

Commitment - Choosing to Cross the Finish Line

Whether a commitment made is to
an idea, individual or situation,
it is a long term proposition.

Commitment is opportunity for growth.
It requires tenacity, determination, focus
understanding that the path chosen
may have its share of obstacles.

Sometimes when the going gets rough,
jumping ship may appear to be the best solution.

However, before jumping ship, take time to notice whether the rough waters are merely caused by the natural ebb and flow of the commitment or the result of a change in tide.

Lending a Healing Hand

Several years back my grandmother made her transition.  She lived with one of her daughters. I knew that my grandmother was frail, but still I’d hoped she would stay with us longer. My aunts and mother informed me that a couple of weeks  prior to my grandmothers passing she  slept a lot and started talking to family members who were no longer here. -- People who already made their transitions to the other side.  Her brothers, cousins, aunts, parents etc.   

A few days before she passed I received a call from my aunt saying that my grandmother had been asking for me on a daily basis  for more than a week.  She thought it best that I come over to see her. When I arrived, my grandmother was sleeping. I stood beside the bed and watched her gentle breathing for a moment. Then she slowly opened her eyes and looked at me. I smiled and said, “yes, I am here grandma’.  She smiled back and said, “give me your hands.” When I extended my hands to her she held them firmly in hers and said, “Hands are very important. Always remember that.”  She clutched my hands again, nodded her head and said “There is something very special about hands. Always remember that”. Then she released my hands with a content smile on her face.  I didn’t know what to make of my grandmothers comments. I left feeling that she had shared wisdom that I should definitely reflect on.  I was informed that after my visit with my grandmother she no longer called out my name.   

A couple of days after my visit I woke feeling strange. After getting dressed I set on my bed, knees pulled to my chest and became very still. I felt un emotional and catatonic as if I were not fully present. My eyes were open. I had no desire to speak or think or move. There was nothing on my mind. In fact I truly did not want to think about anything. I just  sat there suspended in time for what turned out to be over two hours. There was a sense of calmness when I finally stood up. I stretched and walked out of the room as of nothing had happened. Suddenly I stopped in my tracks.  I had a strong sense of knowing that my grandmother was no longer here.  I tried to refocus -- but the thought persisted. I received a phone call later on in the day that confirmed that I was correct. 
A healing occurred on the day my grandmother held my hands. There was an exchange of energy that empowered my grandmother to relax, let go of this reality and move forward. The energy exchange has also empowered me on many levels in my journey of self discovery.

Dance to Your Music

It is Amazing
What you can do by simply
Changing your vibration.
Elevation is the key.

Lighten Up!

Fine tune the tone
to which you vibrate and
Dance to the music of your heart!
