Our thoughts have more power than we give credit.

Are your first thoughts upon waking in the morning, positive or negative? Do you start your day with, “Oh, Crap” or “Oh, Yes”? Do you think all sorts of negative things like, “I’m broke, fat, tired and don’t have enough time, energy or brains for the day”? Or do you begin in the light, speaking words that carry affirmative weight?

Positve thoughts are the ground work to our assured actions.

Ever since beginning my days with, “Thank you” and “YES” the path has been much more clear. And when obstacles come my way I am ready to jump into possibility instead of stopping in my tracks.

Monday’s Random Thought: Open August 18, 2014

When a new group of 28 students gathered on Friday evening to be a part of the next Seattle Life Coach Training certification program (www.slctseattle.com) Founder and Director of SLCT, Richard Seaman, asked me to share with the class my greatest gift I bring to them as co-facilitator of the program.

I had to think about that. What is my greatest gift? Then instead of seeking the answer in my head, I connected to my heart.

This is how I strive to live each day as writer, mother, friend, teacher, life coach, wife, daughter, retreat leader, motivational speaker, yoga practicioner and all the other roles in my life that fill my journey with love and joy. Sure I get stuck in my head when I listen to the “critic” in the corners of my mind or the “should” voice creeping up from behind. Then a miracle happens and something reminds me that living from my heart is where I find the light.

My greatest gift I bring to this new class is my openness. To be open is to not allow myself to be boxed in but rather to be willing to dance in the mystery of it all. When I was a student, two years ago at SLCT, I stated my desire to do work in this world that best utilized my gifts. I had no idea I would be asked by Richard Seaman to be a teacher. Looking back, Richard saw a gift in me I wasn’t aware of in that moment. But I was certainly open to the possibility.

When we don’t see our life in a box, defined to one particular way or role we knock down the boundaries and let the light shine in from directions we had no idea were possible. When we are open it may translate into others seeing our gifts before we do.

I know for me, when I get out of my head and connect from within my heart, miracles happen. Doors fly open, walls fall down and light comes in, shinning bright and for this I am grateful. I am full. I am whole. I am open to receive.

Monday’s Random Thought: Born With It August 11, 2014

Our true nature is to be peaceful and happy beings. We are given these gifts before we step out into this world taking our first breath. These gifts are not earned, they are ours, no questions asked.

I believe we soak in outside circumstance and allow that to influence our natural states of peace and happiness. We allow “life” to tweek our nature and absorb all the other stuff. It is a daily choice and often a life long struggle to let the outside stuff, “life”, dictate our way of being.

When life comes your way, how do you want to receive it and are you willing to open your God given gifts of peace and happiness regardless of what comes your way?

Monday’s Random Thought: What Are You Growing? August 4, 2014

Where you put your energy, shit happens.

Focus your time, thoughts, wishes and all of your energy on the stuff that empties, depletes and drains you and guess what? You will get more of just that.

Focus your time, thoughts, prayers, actions, words and energy on that which you already appreciate and desire and guess what? Yep. You will get more of that and then some.

Focus on the good shit, the bad shit, it doesn’t matter, which ever you are focusing on grows. Multiplies. Expands. Happens.

When I focus on the time, money, relationships I don’t have, I get more of that and less of what I desire. As I turn it around and am grateful for what I do have, abundance follows.

Our thoughts and words guide our actions, where will you guide yourself to today? Growth, expansion and abundance await, so what and where will you put your energy?
