The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – A Lesson Learned!

I learned a very valuable lesson not to long ago; never sway from your passions!  My passions in life are based on living a peaceful life, while helping others achieve a sense of peace as well.  Whether a sense of peace is found in my blog and social media posts, from the books I have written or from the gift I have as a Reiki Master, my passion in life is to help others find an avenue to bring inspiration and positive choices into their lives.

We all go through tests in our lives; some are there to help us along the right path, but then there are tests to make sure we do not sway from our passionate path in life.

I also believe in sharing my truths, as I believe if I can help just one person a day, then I’m doing what I have set out to do in my life.

Over the years, I’ve been tested in many areas of my life.  One thing I’ve learned is that these tests, if you let them move in and take up residence in your brain, are only there to create havoc and chaos, which then creates a wrath of anxiety.  Every single time, one of these tests show up, I will admit, they check into my brain for a brief moment, but then after reflecting on what is important in my life (my passions), it leaves with a sense of release.  It almost feels as though my Crown Chakra opens up and lets all the havoc and chaos particles float on up and out of my body.

I know that sounds deep, but it is the only way I can explain it.  There were tests I’ve gone through where I’ve kept everything to myself.  Not the best thing for me to do, but like I say, “I am human”.  I’ve felt the signs of negativity these tests have brought to me, so I have learned to cry through them.  A great release for me at times!  I’ve said it before, and I will say it again, “there is nothing wrong with crying”.

This was an awakening for me!  I needed to stay true to my passions within me!  Although, these tests were job opportunities which I was approached with, they just truly weren’t for me.  I had considered them, as I thought it would be an opportunity to again help, but something was telling me it just wasn’t the right thing for me to do.  Intuition at its finest I suppose; I was listening to my gut feeling and staying true to my passions.

My passions pull at my heart!  They are mine!  They fuel me every single day!  They bring me joy!  They bring me peace!

I only hope you all can do the same!  Stay true to who you are and what brings you a sense of passion in your lives!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Love You!

Love – the best 4 letter word you can say!

The word “Love” does not always mean “to fall in love with someone”, but instead I believe Love should start with “falling in love with yourself” first.

You can love so many people, animals, places, food, things, information, and the World itself, but not many people will say, “I love myself” first when asked the question, “what is it that you love?  Who do you love?”

In starting this new year, I decided to start my day off with Affirmations!  You know, the “I Am” process which everyone should do.  That’s just my opinion 😊 I found in starting my day off in a positive way before my feet even hit the floor in the morning, I was loving myself more and more.  I was loving myself from the “inside” which then made my love for the “outside” of myself better.

We are all guilty of being our worst critics, but what about being are greatest supporters?  By supporting yourself and finding the positive in yourself, you in turn starting loving yourself more and more every single day!

I feel it is so very important to Love Yourself!  With so much negativity in the World (which I might add, could all be solved with a good old fashioned “love thy neighbor” workshop), we need to focus on Love.  When you love yourself, you smile more.  When you love yourself, you are more kind to others. When you love yourself, you have a sense of Peace.

There is so much to be grateful for in your life; start by being grateful for yourself!  Start by loving who you are, your thoughts, your dreams, your kindness towards others, and your compassion!  These are just a few areas of your life you can start with, then each day, add one or two more characteristics about yourself that you should and could love.

Share your love for yourself; love is contagious and should be shared!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Let The Sun Shine!

Depending on where you live and depending on the type of weather you experience, this time of year can bring on the “hum drum” sadness.  Cold and snowy weather can cause us to sink into a tiny bit of depression.  We don’t realize just how much we rely on a beautiful sunny day.

This is when I like to harness creative visualization to get me through those days.

It is funny, just how powerful our minds are, when we visualize sunny days, or anything positive for that matter.  Our environment is a reflection of who we are, and especially when weather affects us, it is important to dive into our creative ability to change our environment to help guide us out of the “hum drum” state.

What I like to do, is create a warm destination in my own home.  I will have a nice citrus candle or aromatherapy burner going, I will take a bath filled with tropical senses, and if I happen to be staying home for the day, I will dress as if it is 90 degrees outside – nothing wrong with wearing your flip flops in the house and freeing your feet.  I will turn on some Hawaiian music, and I will even cook a summer dinner.  It works!  I don’t even have to look outside and see the 3 feet of snow; my mind has created a nice sunny day with beautiful flowers.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is something that should be taken seriously; if you find yourself experiencing SAD, then it is important to start with your environment.  Your Home!  Our senses are the way to helping yourself feel better.  From the sense of smell, taste, and hearing.  Give yourself the gift of treating your senses to a burst of sunlight!

Remember, this weather is temporary and we will all get through it!  We will all enjoy the sun that is shining and making us smile soon enough; but for now, there is nothing wrong with creating this atmosphere in your home.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Sharing Memories

In moving into our home, we made a point of going through absolutely, every single bin and box of memories!

In doing so, we found over 100 years of memories!  We found pictures of people we didn’t even know, but we knew we were related too!  We saw resemblances and characteristics in our family photos, which helped us to see and appreciate where we came from.  We always knew these photos existed, but never took the time to truly look deep into these faces.

We began to get to know our ancestry and history more; our roots were beginning to show.

Some pictures brought tears, some brought laughter, and for the most part, these pictures brought big smiles.  Our home became warmer with love and appreciation.  I will admit, this is the first home we have lived in where all of us have felt completely at home.  I’d like to think, by going through all our memories, has contributed to this warm feeling.

In a way, it feels like we are now surrounded by those we have loved and lost; where there was a void, there is now comfort.

Sharing memories in these photos has allowed us to not only feel comfort, but to also start more conversations between us.  We put our phones down and actually talk more about our memories.

We even found my old report cards, that clearly stated, “I needed to start paying more attention in class and to stop socializing so much!”  LOL!!  Little did I know, my social skills would contribute to my blog one day 😉

We have received a cherished gift in going through these pictures!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Watching From The Shadows

Do you ever feel as though, you are watching life from the shadows?  It could be a relationship, friendship, or at work, but your intuition is telling you something about these individuals?  You can’t ask that question, so you just watch from the shadows and wait.

You know what is going on, you know others are aware what is happening, but not one person seems to want to bring it up to you, so you wait from the shadows.  You are waiting in a very dark place.  Your mind is taking over with thoughts that haven’t even happened yet!  Or probably won’t even happen!

Is this person cheating on you?  Has your best friend been talking behind your back?  Are you about to be fired?  All these “gut wrenching” situations, are lingering around in the shadows of your life!  In your mind!

We have all been there and we are not alone in those dark shadows!

Watching from the Shadows, is a waiting game.  Please know that this too, will eventually help you to gain more wisdom.  More tests, brings more gain!  Watching from the Shadows, can be very lonely, can be challenging, but can also be a safe place.  You are living in a form of “meantime” in those shadows.  Keep in mind, this place does not always have to be dark.

Change the color of the shadows!  Paint the shadow a bright color!  Your questions have not been answered yet, so why assume your questions will be answered in a negative way?  Your mind is powerful, allow this time in the shadows to create greatness!  Create and affirm a positive outcome!  This will be your test of strength!  This will be “your” time, when you thought you needed to wait and watch, all you need to do is create and live!

Your intuition is always right; we just need to learn how to listen to what exactly your intuition is trying to tell you in a positive way!

Think positive thoughts while you are watching from the shadows; your mind is powerful!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – I Will Never Forget You!

I Will Never Forget You!

This phrase will be part of your life forever!  We meet people who, in their own way, allow us to learn.  It could have been a negative experience we learn from, but it can also be a positive one.  Regardless, we will never forget the people who come into our lives to help us grow.

If you have experienced a negative person who “made” you grow, after time passes, they have actually “helped” you to grow.  Without them, you could never learn valuable lessons.  I know it seems funny to acknowledge a negative person in your life who has changed you, but without them, you wouldn’t have learned.  I’m not saying, their negative actions were right, but instead, their actions were placed in your path for you to gain wisdom and become who you are today.

There are many people in my life, who I think of every now and then, whom I will never forget.  In fact, there are people in my life who have put me through test after test, and at times, I feel as if I would have liked to have erased them from my life completely, but instead I have learned a very valuable lesson in forgiveness.  I will never forget the challenges they have created for me, the test of trust, loyalty, and strength they put me through, but I’d like to think I came out of these tests better than I was before.  I am more proud of myself because of them.  I love myself more!

I have been through some wonderful experiences in my life and I have much gratitude for everything I’ve been through; the good, the bad, and the ugly situations made me who I am today and who I will continue to be!

I know, “I will never forget you”, will be in my future as well; I will harness every situation I go through in a positive way, knowing I will learn even more, I will love myself more each day, and I will be stronger.  Positive and/or negative situations will bring me more clarity about life and the journey I am on.

I wish you the same clarity, the same love for yourself, and the strength to forgive in order for you to move forward in a positive way!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Kindred Spirits

Kindred Spirits show up when you least expect it!  They could be the opposite sex, younger, older, the same age as you, different nationality, and different religion.  The funny thing is, your Kindred Spirits could be anyone; it is all about your spirit!

Whenever I’ve met a “Kindred Spirit”, I’ve known right away who they were; I could see it in their eyes.  The warmth I felt when meeting my Kindred Spirits, is one of complete comfort.  You have heard the phrase, “I get that warm fuzzy feeling when I see you”, well not always is that said from a potential romantic perspective.  It is said, based on the comfort they are feeling from you.  They feel safe with you!

I’ve had my Kindred Spirits tell me, “I’m just comfortable in your presence”; what a compliment and what a gift to be able to meet a Kindred Spirit who acknowledges your presence.

Kindred Spirits become connected to you;  you may not see them all the time, but when you do, it is the feeling of being at home.  Don’t question “why” you are feeling this way, there is no ulterior motive, this is simply your spirits getting acquainted.

Please don’t read into the emotions you feel when you meet your Kindred Spirit; they are not romantic, they are simply pure comfort from another time.
