Inspirational, Laurie Rohner, Quotes, Thoughts are energy

Let’s clean up our energy.

I am a big believer in the field of energy always swirling around us, through us, and emitting from us. Thoughts actions and nature makes up part of the field. What is believed in our minds and hearts can manifest in our lives and world – good or bad. In effect bad things do not happen they are created by ourselves or others. There is no random cause and effect. So once I absorbed the thought, idea and wisdom of this new concept  – for me that is – I started receiving different information about how to live differently.

The very first action anyone should do is clean up your thoughts. It is amazing how the people and your life changes. The toxic people tend to start to disappear. In their place comes interesting new wonderful people. I found nature even changed. Birds start to show up around the house which is something I love. Best of all is you feel lighter and better about you.

Second is clean your home. Get rid of all that stuff cluttering your life. It only holds you down. How can you fly under all that weight?

Your Wings Exist Fly
Watercolor Illustration by Laurie Rohner

The next action I do is take a white candle and burn it. I visualize what I envision my life. From that flame I light a white sage smudge stick and walk around my house asking my guide and angels to guide me, protect me and to release all negative energies from my life. I love the smell of sage but opening up some windows helps to move the negative energy out. Be sure to work counterclockwise and smudge all windows doors and each level of your home. End your smudging with thanking your guide and angels, bless the energies a safe and wonderful journey and stub out the sage smudge stick.

Happy cleaning!

Laurie

Business, Inspirational, Laurie Rohner, Quotes, Thoughts are energy

Angry People. Stay calm and keep on walking.

watercolor illustration by Laurie Rohner
Think of a peaceful place and let the anger go.

Let me share a story with you.

Yesterday an email hit my inbox from Etsy. It was for a custom order. I opened the email and found this young women ranting with profanity about how I had sent her a twitter feed and to stop it. Now I admit I don’t know how things work but I do know that this was her issue – not mine. I replied back explaining I had nothing to do with her feed being filled up with my etsy posts – 5 to be exact –  and she was not to contact shop owners through the custom order request. I said I was sorry this happened and wish her a better day. She then shot me another scathing email how she has reported me to twitter – hum don’t understand why – and that she is not the one responsible for this problem. I received 3 more irrational emails from this young lady. I did not reply because this would only feed her irrational rantings. Instead I sent an email to etsy about her with the emails she had sent and I blocked her from my twitter feed. Finally I sent her an email and told her what has happened thus ending her rants.

A few hours have passed, why did this person do this? I pondered that thought and believe that she was attracted in some way to my energy.

Do you think thoughts have energy?

Considering what is happening in my life and the way I was feeling about myself I can understand my part in this story. Though I did not see it in the beginning I have to thank this young women for showing me how my thinking had become negative and self doubting. I had opened the door and allowed that energy in – the door now shut I move on.

There is nothing wrong in protecting yourself against abusive people and reporting them when they act out. This is a consequence of their negative thinking, their thoughts or their mental energy. What is needed is taking responsibility for your part – unwanted yes – learning from this marvelous lesson and letting it go with light and love.

As an artist you are in contact with many different people and I try to accommodate my customers with respect. I give my full focus to the project at hand. Since I feel creative energy is infused into any creative work I am mindful of my thoughts while creating. How can you do your best work if you are at the mercy of negative people and negative thinking? I don’t see how you can. Look at the circumstances and then let the thoughts and people go. Then get back in the studio and create.

Have fun!

By the way if looking for a realtor in the Elkin area give Ellen a call.

Quotes

Do the best you can.

It is all anyone can do, the best they can. I am amazed at the amount people are happy with not doing and when someone calls them out on a mediocre job they are indignant. How dare you! Not me. Or I am doing what everyone else is doing  so why do any more? Do the most. Do the best. Do all you can with not one reward. Do it because you will not do anything halfway. Do it for yourself. There is a great feeling of doing the best you can.

Amaryllis Watercolor by Laurie Rohner

Why am I saying this? After a couple of weeks switching up my web sites, changing around my internet/TV service and still having a house on the market it struck me.  I worked with many people from all around the world (not by choice) and not one person could give me a straight answer. Is it me? Or did the human race become complacent and stop doing their best.

Painted Furniture Nature Box Keepsake by Laurie Rohner

Working for yourself is difficult. Working as an artist/designer/entrepreneur at times daunting, for one person wearing too many hats can be tiring. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I have had to learn web designing marketing and promoting products and myself in a world where texting is more used than the spoken word. You adapt and you work hard at always giving it (your business) your best.  Whatever the business is if you are marketing selling promoting and creating an agreement with someone then YES do your best.
