What’s My Vibrational Problem?

Published April 13, 2015 by Stuff My Brain Thinks

I got up this morning feeling all blah and icky.  This is totally unlike me.  I love getting up in the morning.  It doesn’t matter if it’s Monday or Friday.  I love all of the days of the week.  I love going to work, I love coming home and I love everything in between.  I know what you must be thinking.  “oh my gosh, puke, this girl can’t be that happy.”  But the truth is, I am.

So when I wake up feeling anything other than the happiness I normally feel, I immediately take to my journal to write out all the thoughts, and emotions that come up when I inquire; What do I need to know right now?  Why am I feeling vibrationally off this morning?  And what came through the pen were a few different things.

First, I wrote how my secretary, my partner, is on vacation and I will have to be alone and do all the work this week.  Then I wrote that I am just coming off of a weekend where I ate more than I should have.  And finally I wrote how I am two days from starting my period.  Bingo!!  That’s the one.

I knew right away that the PMS was the culprit.  I know how I get just before my period.  I can be grumpy, crave foods I shouldn’t be eating, and have zero energy.  Now that I am aware of the elephant in the room, so to speak, I can take measures to be sure that I stay stress free.  How do I do this?  It’s simple.  I always come back to my breath.

I will be doing many one-minute meditations for the next couple of days.  I read somewhere that it is impossible to become stressed if you a responsible breather.  By that I mean make sure you are getting several deep breaths throughout the day.  The body needs the oxygen and your stress levels will go way down, which incidentally is why we all have belly fat.

That been said I will end this blog post with a few intentions to start my day.  I like to set my intentions and desires for each day as well as those for my future pursuits.  It’s a great practice to get into, since it is from our intentions and desires that creation is born.  So here it goes!

  • I intend on walking to and from work today.  I am going to take the thirty minutes it takes to get there and back to become grounded and centered.  I am going to do a walking meditation.
  • I intend on working at a relaxing pace all the while having plenty of time to complete every task.
  • Finally I intend on doing all of this by being present.  I will be one with the present moment so that I will be open and receptive to the guidance from my spiritual advisers.

What are your intentions and desires for today?

What’s Your Truth?

Published April 4, 2015 by Stuff My Brain Thinks

What is my truth?

My truth is that I don’t know anything for certain except that I love me and love getting to know me.  Have you ever asked yourself, what is your truth?  It’s not as easy as one would think to put it down in black and white.  Knowing my truth has become my passion.

I have become aware that my inner purpose is to awaken to the fact that I am an incredibly interesting being.  Writing and learning about myself has been such an exhilarating project since starting a little over three years ago.  It’s never boring and I always learn something new.  For so long I wanted a hobby.  I was always complaining that I was bored.  Little did I know that I was the hobby I was looking for.

It all started so simply, journal writing, and meditating in the morning.  In the beginning there were a lot of stuff coming to the surface that I would have normally stuffed down with food, cigarettes, alcohol or whatever was there for that day.  But instead of stuffing it down I wrote it down, I wrote and wrote and wrote.  It was like releasing all of this stuff to make way for a more peaceful existence.

Through it all I can happily say that I have pretty much worked through all the garbage of my past, and have become aware enough to see the conditioned patterns that developed because of that garbage.  It was fun to get in there and dig deep when certain emotions would come up or certain destructive patterns would resurface.

I filled many journals, and through that I found that the more I wrote the more joyous I became.  Self-awareness, self-discovery and self-discipline are, in my opinion, in the foundation for a beautifully connected life.

It was, at times, an extremely emotional journey, mostly in the very beginning.  However, it didn’t take long to work through it, once I learned the art of forgiveness.  I know longer wallow in my own misery, and I know longer create misery for those that I love.  I have learned to forgive and have been forgiven.  I finally come from a place of peace and contentment.  I am able to see the universe rising up to meet me.

I am on my way.  I have graduated through the first phase of my journey, clearing the pathway.  With my pathway clear, I am able to enjoy the flow of the universe.  I am able to clearly pick up messages meant especially for me.  I can communicate with my spiritual team whenever I need them.  Life has opened up to me and I am so excited to see what it has in store.  It’s like a really good series that has no ending.

Onward and upward, my friends.

Life is a blessing, and since we are one with life, we are a blessing as well.

Getting the Answers

Published April 2, 2015 by Stuff My Brain Thinks

I love getting validation.  During my journal writing I sometimes like to do something, I call Guided writing.  ThIMG_1832e G is capitalized because the Guided represents messages from my spiritual team.  All of my angels and spirit guides that are helping me move through life in such an effortless way are there for me whenever I need them.

In the picture you will see how after answering my question they gently reminded me that there is no question that I do not have the answer for.  Meaning that everything I need to know is already within me, I simply need to ask.

Anyway, not even a minute later Sonia Choquette, on Hay House Radio mentioned asking your angels and spirit guides questions and writing the answer.  This was just the validation I needed for today!

Every morning I ask; what is my message for the day?   And every day I get that message in such an uplifting way.

Life is certainly sweet.

The world is full of kind people, if you can’t find one, be one.

Thank You, All You Blogsters

Good morning all you amazing blogsters.  I felt compelled to come in and simply offer a good morning to you all, with much love and adoration.  May we all recognize ourselves for what we are and that is giving beings willing to share our lives in the hopes to somehow make a difference to someone, somewhere.

That is the beauty of the internet.  Sometimes we feel really small in the world.  Sometimes we wonder how we can possible make a difference from our tiny little corner of the world.  That is where the internet comes in pretty handy.  We have the ability to lift a person up who we’ve never met.  We have the ability to commit random acts of kindness with our words to anywhere in the world.

Get up right now and take a look in the mirror and really appreciate the goodness you see.  We are all changing the world one person at a time.  That person being ourselves.  Express your love and appreciation for you!  Because you are making a difference just by being you.

It was brought to my attention this weekend that the greatest service any of us can offer the world is that of living a conscious, loving life.  I also learned that I am responsible for the vibration I emit, therefore, I choose to be vibrationally high, emitting only loving, kindness.

Be Blessed and Be a Blessing

Peace is Power

Wow, it has been such a long time since I have blogged.  I have been spending the past three months on a personal journey to expand my spirituality.  I have found such peace and contentedness in my life.  There is something to be said for surrendering yourself to allow life to flow without interference.  It brings about a sense of great peace.  Peace is power.  There is also quite a lot less of me as well.  At Christmas time I had not only gained all the weight back that I had lost but tacked on a little more for good measure.  My life was spiraling out of control at that time.  When I ate it was like a frenzied feeling and right after I felt devastated, like a failure.  It was awful.  

Then, on the morning of January 2nd I believe that I had an awakening of some sort.  I remember waking up that morning, going to the computer and searching for books that would help to to gain some perspective to why it is I do what I do.  I began the search for my true self.  I turned to God and my faith to gain control of my life.  I started reading many books that were designed to help me in this journey of self exploration.  I have never been a reader but let me tell you I now have a deep sincere love for the peace that it offers.  

This morning I had a strong urge to take a moment to update everyone on what I have been up to lately, and since I have been making it a practice to follow my intuition it was a must to take a moment to blog.  I am making a promise to not walk away again.  I will keep in contact.  

Binge Eating

Published January 13, 2012 by Stuff My Brain Thinks

DON’T PANIC I DIDN’T BINGE

LOL

As I was doing my hair this morning, I was thinking that I may have cured my reason to binge eat.  If I can eat a couple of things during the week ie cosmic brownie 😉 and still have a weight loss then I don’t need to binge.

All things I need to remember

When I binge eat it is almost always because I am thinking “I will eat everything I want, then I’ll be good for a couple of weeks”.   I hate binge eating.  I have read a lot about it and from what I read, my risk of having a stroke is much higher after a binge, not to mention the effects it has to have on my organs.  I would hate to die after eating a ton of food.  Then I would be known as the girl who ate herself to death.  That would suck, seriously!

I am going to try to remember that I don’t have to eat everything in two hours.  I can have what I want a couple of times a week and still hit my goal.  That is pretty good news!  Oh and I can fight it.  Yes, it turns me into a miserable biotch but it is possible AND it will pass.  Yeahaaawwww!!  Such wonderful forms of self discovery.
