Published May 13, 2014 by Stuff My Brain Thinks

20140513-050335.jpgI hope all you moms out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day. ¬†I know I did. ¬†The weather was amazing and I was able to put together my vision board. ¬†The vision board that has been carefully constructed with the direction of Colette Baron-Reid. ¬†I am very happy with the way it turned out and of course wanted to share it with you all.


Love…… What else is there?

I haven’t felt much like writing lately. ¬†Life has been amazing. ¬†I have been reading and walking, meditating and preparing to make a new vision board.

As my last post stated I am reading a book called Remembering the Future by Colette Baron-Reid. ¬†I am feel very connected to this author. ¬†She greatly changed my life last year with her book “The Weight-Loss Program for People Who Feel to Much. ¬†I was forever changed through many, many journal writings. ¬†I filled seven books in 2013 alone. ¬†These books are¬†filled with my journey to become a newer happier more peaceful me.

love_me-2387I was able to take a close look at my life and how my choices and thoughts were affecting my body, my happiness, my overall way of life. ¬†I am still over-weight, but I love me. ¬†I truly and forever deeply love myself. ¬†It took a lot to get here, but I made it. ¬†I make mistakes every day but in the end I forgive myself. ¬†I express my love and compassion for myself and move forward. ¬†I know longer taunt myself relentlessly for mistakes and I don’t belittle myself . ¬†I show myself the respect I would give any other person in my path. ¬†Rarely do I even feel guilty. ¬†It may pop up for a second but then I am remember I don’t do “guilt” ¬†it’s a waste of time and serves no purpose, much like worry….. ¬†Both emotions are fruitless.

It has changed me.  I have learned to treat myself with kindness even after over-eating sometimes.  I am amazing, and God has given me another day to do better.  The best apology we can ever give past mistakes is how we live now, and the only way is love.  Love will conquer!  But it has to start with loving ourselves first.  Once that is mastered everything around becomes more peaceful.  Life becomes joyful.

Anyway, I am excited to get my new vision board done this weekend.  Colette described an interesting new outlook on creating and manifesting, using a vision board, since I am a lover of the vision board I am of course very excited to get started.

I will post a picture of it when it is done.

Happy Friday all. ¬†It felt good to write again. ¬†‚ėļ

I Have Been Given a Gift

Published May 5, 2014 by Stuff My Brain Thinks

As I sit and listen to Oprah and Eckhart go over Chapter 7 in A New Earth I realize this chapter was a life changer for me about a year ago.  Without even realizing what I was doing, I began applying this principle to my life.  I learned to feel my emotions and explore them without judgement.  When a challenging situation would arise my emotions would dart through my sacral chakra up into the solar plexus almost simultaneously.  It felt like an electrical shock, a rush of energy that surged from those areas then throughout my entire body at such a rate of speed, it seemed to take me along for the ride whether I wanted to go or not.

imagesI instantly felt doom, like my world, as I knew it, was crumbling.  I remember literally curling up in a ball, almost paralyzed with fear when something unexpected would happen, something I labeled as bad.  It could have been as small as car troubles and often was.  Then at the beginning of 2013 I was introduced to a book called The Weight-loss Program for People Who Feel to Much.  I actually remember saying a prayer asking God to give me the resources I needed to save my life.

Immediately after that prayer I logged into Amazon and this book was right in front of me, front and center. ¬†I knew at the time that it was no accident, this book seemed to be¬†calling out to me, so I purchased it right then, and there. ¬†Needless to say it changed my life, not only by reading it, Colette taught me how to write as a form of therapy. ¬†Colette Baron-Reid taught me how to explore my emotions on a deeper level, she taught me how to recognize that my emotions were in control of me, rather than I, of them. ¬†Over the course of a few months I had made immeasurable¬†changes as far as being in control of my reactions to life’s¬†“little”¬†curve balls. ¬†In fact I began seeing life differently all together.

This seemingly tiny little thing has afforded me a sense of peace that is worth millions. ¬†I learned to surrender to what is. ¬†And by doing so I learned to see the best possible solutions to life’s event. ¬†These solutions would come forward like mini miracles. ¬†The simple act¬†of surrender allows the universe to work it’s magic in my favor. ¬†My greatest lesson from this is that,¬† I do not have the answers. ¬†I cannot possibly create the best outcome to any situation. ¬†In fact the more I get involved the worse the situation seemed to become. ¬†I know this to be true, because I have been practicing it for more than a¬†year now and although I am not perfect, I have not had an emotion take me for a ride in a very long time, and life has become effortless and joyful. ¬†It is the ultimate freedom.

mM-JZX2bsV7fS_woWKQWxZgRecently I was given a book. ¬†This book is also written by Colette. ¬†My sister¬†gifted¬†me the book Remembering the Future. ¬†I had the book for a few days without paying much attention to it. ¬†My son put it on my dresser and there it sat until one day as I was passing by I picked it up to investigate. ¬†The minute I realized the book was written by Colette I knew that this book was passed on to me for a reason. ¬†I couldn’t believe it. ¬†I began reading it right away. I am very excited at the possibilities this book represents.

I will read it from cover to cover and do all of the exercises.  I can feel the importance of this book from deep within my core.  I know that I am going to learn a lot and in turn become more and more at peace.  I have been asking God to help me  and support me in my quest to be healthy and whole from the inside out, and again, I believe He has.  This book is a gift from the cosmos delivered by way of my sister.

How perfect! ‚ô•


Living my Life’s Purpose

Published May 1, 2014 by Stuff My Brain Thinks

Today, since the rain has stopped me from walking, I have decided to do some cooking. ¬†One of my newest, greatest loves. ¬†I’ve also been drawn to re-watch the Super Soul Sunday event with Eckhart Tolle. ¬†Thankfully I had the presence of mind to save this and so many more of Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday’s. ¬†There is a definite sense of peace I get from listening to Eckhart speak. ¬†It is a dream of mine to be able to attend one of his live events.

I am certain that there will come a day that I will have the means to do so. ¬†I write while listening to their conversation. ¬†It is so heart-opening to me. ¬†He speaks of the power of life and how we all have the ability to be in touch with that power through the present moment. ¬† Through Eckhart’s teaching I have learned to enjoy my life by doing what I love, by expanding my love for spirituality, by silencing the mind and living in each moment as it unfolds. ¬†This alone is my life’s practice.

Awakening is my life’s purpose. ¬†It is not only my life’s purpose but my responsibility to the universe. ¬†One awakened mind brings forth the awakening in other’s. ¬†Being that we are all interconnected to one another and all things, it is our ¬†individual duty to¬†take responsibility for the vibration we are transmitting.

A perfect example of this is being in the presence of a happy, laughing child.  A happy child will bring about a feeling of happiness within you, in the same way being in the presence of a person who is angry will bring about a sense of anger within yourself, as well.

Be sure the vibration you are giving out into the world is one of peace and happiness and you will notice that those around you will also be peaceful and happy.  What is in you, will also be in those around you.  Take the time to sense the feeling of your inner state of being throughout and life as you know it will change.

This in short is The Law of Giving and Receiving.

With much Love
