ARE YOU TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT YOUR 2011?

January 7, 2011

People often say or think things they may believe are true but, at closer analysis, there’s a deeper truth that lies beneath.

Here are some examples:

Statement: “I didn’t say anything because I didn’t want to hurt her feelings.”

Truth: I didn’t say anything because she might feel or say something that would make me feel uncomfortable. I didn’t want to deal with my feelings or feel helpless because I wouldn’t know what to do.

Statement: “I practice my faith religiously, but those people aren’t living by the true word.”

Truth: I’m being judgmental and not practicing unconditional love. Others have nothing to do with my faith or religion. My attitude is about my insecurity and fear of change and being different.

Statement: We have to save the planet.

Truth: It’s important to be good stewards of the earth. Furthermore, she supports all life on the planet so it makes sense to treat her well. But she’s more than capable of saving herself. She has earthquakes, floods and other means to correct imbalances. It’s our species we’re looking out for when we think we have to rescue her. Grandstanding can also serve politically.

What does this have to do with you telling the truth about your 2011? The following questions may help you clarify deeper truths about your life’s direction.

Questions: What do you really choose your life to be this year? Is it an old program of an outdated dream? Do your resolutions sound good but you don’t really care about them? Are your goals about what you think you should do? Are they habitual or dutiful?

Are you really happy or is it a façade of happiness? Do you feel good about yourself? Are you having fun and enjoying life? Do this year’s goals offer a course correction to living in a more satisfying way?

Or are your goals and resolutions coming from your heart and soul?

What would inspire you to feel gratified with your work? What brings you a deeper sense of purpose? What lights you up when you think about if only I could…

Truth: Your soul knows your ideal goals, and your soul is you.

How can you discover your truth at a soul level?

  1. Think about a question that, when responded to, would elicit answers to offer you clear direction.
  2. Breathe.
  3. Silently ask your question with the intention of getting an answer.
  4. Trust that answers come and in divine right timing.

Sometimes parts of answers come one at a time like puzzle pieces. Sometimes they pop in as a flash of insight in odd moments.

Relax and know that your truth is within, always available to you, and serves as your guiding light for 2011 and beyond.

Happy New Big Dreams

January 1, 2011
Happy Talk is a song from the play and movie South Pacific. It has a catchy tune that I sung as a teenager in my school’s chorus.  
 
Happy talk, keep talking happy talk,
Talk about things you’d like to do,
You gotta have a dream,
if you don’t have a dream,
How you gonna have a dream come true?
 
If you don’t talk happy and you never dream,
Then you’ll never have a dream come true.
 
So, DREAM well.
 
Dream BIG.
 
Dream about what makes your
heart sing.
 
Focus on
what makes you happy,
not what didn’t or doesn’t.
 
Go beyond
talking about what you’d like to do.
 
CHOOSE
YOUR
DREAM.
 
Choosing is one of the
most powerful tools you have
to create the world of your dreams
you invite
invoke
align
your very soul to assist you
to manifest your dreams
when you do.
 
Take action,
even little steps
everyday
towards your dream.
 
Your prayers are always heard –
it’s up to you to dream them up and
trust they arrive in divine right timing.
 
Many blessings to you in
creating a year
of your dreams!
 
I support your choices and
see you receiving them!!!
