Spring Time Vibes- Poppy Super Bloom

Here in California it’s the first day of spring. This can be a symbol of re-growth. A symbol of new beginnings. A time to step outdoors as each day grows a little longer with a little more sunlight. With all the rain we have had this last season; it seems that mother nature is putting on quite the show for us. We can just sit in the silence and ground ourselves with the beauty that is our world.

I know that in some areas of our country there is flooding from too much rain. I pray for all those that are affected by the adverse effects of mother nature. But with this first day of spring let us remember all that is good in the world. All that we can be thankful for. All the blessings that surround us even when we can not see them. Open your eyes and your heart to love one another; to be able to respect each other even if you do not see through the same lens. We were created out of love; let’s spread that joy to others whenever we can. Take a look around you each day with love in your heart and maybe tomorrow will be a better world.

Love and Light,

Jeanine on the Scene

As we come to the end of another year, go back to January, get your calendars out and reflect on the things you have accomplished, the trips you have taken, the weekends spent with friends, family, loved ones. Write down memories of each month. You will be surprised at all that has happened to you in one year and all the great memories you have made. The memories that you have created for a lifetime. The little things, the big things and the in between things. You will be amazed at how much you have done and how far you have gotten in a year.So give thanks, be blessed for this life on earth and love whole hearted, spreading love and joy in the world.

Now get out those 2019 calendars, get organized and start planning for an amazing New Year. The world is at your fingertips, grab it. Re-organize those closets, give away items that no longer serve you to someone who is in need.  Start Fresh.

May 2019 be a year of blessings, gratitude, achievements and please spread love wherever you wander. A smile is worth a Thousand Words.

  1. The first is to ALWAYS chose YOU.  See yourself in your true light and love what you see in the mirror everyday.
  2. Be a servant of love. God created you in your authentic self, to be a servant to spread love in the world.  Use your gifts.
  3. KEEP your GRATITUDE, YOUR FAITH, YOUR ABUNDANCE and journal daily on it.
  4. Be a teacher of love. When you chose this; love will follow you. Replace the thoughts of negative behavior in your mind, chose again and replace it with positive affirmations.
  5. Let go of your fears and ego and be still in your day. Set aside 5 or 10 minutes to sit in silence; to meditate or just be still.  You will be surprised at how this can greatly affect your thoughts and how you feel in your day.

How to find the Positive out of a Bad Day

We all have them right?  Those days that start off without a restful sleep. You toss and turn and your brain WILL NOT SHUT OFF!  You look at the clock and watch the time roll from 12:30, 1:30, 2:30 (OMG will I ever fall asleep).  You finally are able to shut your brain down around 4:30 and the alarm goes off at 6 am.  UGH UGH UGH!!!

From this point on you have set the path for your day, wanting to pull the covers over your head and lose yourself in the sleepy slumber you missed the night before. You begin your day planning for the worst possible outcome. A sluggish day, non production and anxiety; where fear and ego take over and nothing seems to go your way because you have allowed yourself to cultivate the worst picture in your mind. Instead of this picture what would you envision as a perfect day?

So yesterday was one of those days for me.  I have had so many different ideas and projects going in my mind that it was hard for me to shut them off.  I continually analyze and over analyze each scenario. I make notes and more notes and spin and spin and spin.  Anyone else do that?  I went to bed feeling ready for sleep and then I woke up around 12:30 to start the whole process of what if’s, trying desperately to go to sleep.  I turned on my meditation app which usually helps.  I did fall asleep for a 1/2 hour but woke again in the tornado of my mind circling around and around a mix of explanations, advantages, disadvantages.  Well you get the picture; a train wreck! This led to a less than productive day filled with anxiety, depression, fears and just a blah day of self doubt and frustrations.  So I told myself “its ok” chalk this off as a day to just re-group and reflect.  So I stopped all my projects for the day.  I read a book.  I took a walk. I watched some programs on Netflix.  I turned off my brain for the day. I went to bed thanking God for allowing this day, knowing I could reflect on it tomorrow and see what the message truly was for me with a clear mind.

I woke up this morning determined to get myself out of my funk and be productive, to see why I had the day I did as they are all lessons to learn if we open up to receive them.  I went to the gym because exercise helps to clear your mind. There I envisioned what a good day looks like , a balance of organization to achieve my goals.

Once you can see past the issue and understand why your day unfolded as it did, to  receive the resolution, then it all becomes clear. There is a reason for everything that happens in our lives.  There are many different paths to take. If we slow down and breath we can see the possibilities. We can reach the highest good for ourselves, but we have to listen and let go of our ego based fears and adjust because it is life. We have one to live so lets make it GREAT!

So when you find yourself in those sleepless nights that make for a not so productive day know this:  We all have them. Every successful person has good and bad days.  The difference is you can either focus on the bad day or listen and learn from your inner thoughts; to see why or what triggered those thoughts. To do whatever you need to to re-ground yourself, to re-center your mind to trust in yourself, but to also trust in the universe and God; whoever your higher power. They have your back.  You just need to ask, your never alone.  Let yourself off the hook to ask for help to reach your goals.  Choose again, infinite possibilities await you, change your thought.  Wishing you slumber and infinite possibilities.

Love and Light,

Let Freedom Ring

Well hello and Happy 4th of July!!!  I have been back from my fabulous trip for a few weeks now but still my heart longs to be back in Tuscany.  I am a different person than I was before this trip.  I have new goals and ambitions.  I have more love in my heart.  I want to share my visions with others and help those that want to be more or do better for this ever changing world we live in.  So as I sat this morning wondering what I would write about my mind drifted to my freedom and what does it stand for to me.  Freedom is more than just the world I live in, it is a new found freedom I have found in myself.  Its the positive feeling I have when I wake up each morning that I am thankful and grateful.  That I have abundance and love in my life.  That I am FREE to be ME.  The choices I make are mine and mine alone to be a better person, to live my life to the fullest, to love with all that I am and all that I will be, and to always be honest to myself with love and respect and dignity.  What does freedom mean to you?  Please read the lyrics below, really read them and let me know what “Let Freedom Ring” means to you.
Much love and light,

Lyrics
Deep within the heart has always known that there was freedom
Somehow breathed into the very soul of life
The prisoner, the powerless, the slave have always known it
There’s something that keeps reaching for the sky
And even life begins because a baby fights for freedom
And songs we love to sing have freedom’s theme
Some have walked through fire and flood to find a place of freedom
And some faced hell itself for freedom’s dream
Let freedom ring wherever minds know what it means to be in chains
Let freedom ring wherever hearts know pain
Let freedom echo through the lonely streets where prisons have no key
We can be free and we can sing, let freedom ring
God built freedom into every fiber of creation
And He meant for us to all be free and whole
When my Lord bought freedom with the blood of His redemption
His cross stamped pardon on my very soul
I’ll sing it out with every breath, I’ll let the whole world hear it
This hallelujah anthem of the free
That iron bars and heavy chains can never hold us captive
The Son has made us free and free indeed
Let freedom ring down through the ages from a hill called Calvary
Let freedom ring wherever hearts know pain
Let freedom echo through the lonely streets where prisons have no key
You can be free and you can sing let freedom ring
Let freedom echo through the lonely streets where prisons have no key
You can be free and you can sing let freedom ring
You can be free and you can sing, let freedom ring, let freedom ring
