For your consideration…..

Say we wake up, we consider our day, we plan to be the best that we can be and off we go. Then the reality of the day hits us. We get bombarded with crabby or angry people, scheduling issues, traffic, sitter problems, work place problems, the news, money problems, family issues etc. And we slowly start to see our good intentions start to slip away.  It seems that we are deflecting negative energy right and left. And the diversion from our intentions start. What is up with that? How do we get back to the positive energy we started out with? How do we keep our best intentions for our growth intact?

Some of you must be having those questions because the message coming through for today are suggestions and tips….little shortcuts….. to help us quickly turn the page on the moment and start a new one back on track.

Here are some ideas to help you deflect and/or turn around that negative energy so you can go on your merry way no worse for wear:

*Breathe….yes, just take in some deep breaths. If you can go somewhere private, even outdoors, fine. But if not, just taking those deep breaths where you stand will help. Breathe in new. Breathe out the garbage.

*Take some time to write down some positive affirmations. Carry them with you on a 3×5 card or in a little notebook in your purse etc. When you feel like something is starting to wear you down, pull them out and read them. Those affirmations should include statements on your power, your perfection, your choices, your life purpose, your goals etc.

*In one of my classes the other night, our teacher mentioned that you can record on some of the new phones like the Androids or IPhone. If you can do that, that is an ideal way to keep positive affirmations with you.

*Whether with a phone, little recorder or just pen and paper, it is good to have things you are grateful for documented for quick reference when you need them. It is a lot harder to fall into a pity party when you are staring  at the Blessings in your life.

*Keep positive reading material around you. Try to always have reading material available so that you can take five and read something uplifting when you need to.

*Have people identified that are upbeat and positive….these are not people who commiserate with you. They are people who are good sounding boards to help your release and let go whether you are in the right or wrong. They do not wade into the misery. They are compassionate but do not take on the issue.

*Ask your angels and guides for “white light” protection. Remember we have Divine help available 24/7. Call on it.

*Keep a little sorting process going throughout your day. Good and HOPEful ideas, feelings and actions keep above or before you. Those same that are not good, throw them beneath you. If you have trouble visualizing this, write them down. Keep what is working in your pocket. Rip up what is not working and throw it in the trash.

It should be noted that all of the above are also good tips to use even when everything is humming along just as we planned.

HOPEfully these are helpful. If you have other tips that work for you, we’d love to hear them. Feel free to email them to the blog and I will put them in a post. Or you can put them on our Facebook blog. We are here for each other. We learn from each other. That is the HOPE.


Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take…….

-Meditate….for as long as you can. Some days will be better than others. The breathing alone is good practice.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths. Again the routine practice of the breathing is good for us. It will make it easier for us when we get into those stressful situations and need to remember to breathe.

-Drink lots of water.

-Start working on some affirmations.

-Cut out or record those quotes that ring true to your authentic self.


What made me smile yesterday……

-Another great day in the classroom.

-I got some great comments and notes from students. Don’t you just love it when they are old enough to articulate but not too old that they hold back?

-My friend, Yvonne, called and she has a great class scheduled for Sunday.

-Wouldn’t it be fun to officiate a wedding? Oh yeah! Thanks, Jackie, for opening that thought process.


Love, Blessings, and Gratitude,
