Today. Today I embrace my intuition.

This year started with a feeling that this was going to be a grand year, full of new exciting profitable projects and selling my studio home. It is November and I still am waiting for someone to buy this home. I am still waiting to sink my teeth into that new exciting project. I am still living in a place called limbo town. With each hour day and month I have grown more anxious and fearful that my timeline won’t be met. I wake every morning with hope seeking for an answer only to flop into the bed at night totally exhausted and stressed. My body aches from the stress and my mind is on its own continuous loop never disengaging making getting a good nights sleep not so possible. Yet today I got up thinking today is different. Today is different because it is today.

Today I stop waiting. Today I start doing. Today I start allowing. Today I stop controlling. Today is new and exciting. Today is the project I have searched for starts to give birth. Today when I fall into bed I will be tired not from stress and dreams unrealized but from working and creating in complete synergy of my life. No restrictions. Today I am co-creating my story.

No more thinking it through or is this being realistic? Being realistic and thinking it through got me to this point and well that did not work out to well for me. Today I embrace my intuition, my soul whispers, the little signs you only see when you stop pretending they are not there. Today my belief in the divine plan exists is my guide. Today it all begins, an epic journey, is today your today?

Quotes

Every night our dreams can bring hope.

Your choices of action may be limited—but your choices of thought are not.

—Abraham

Make it a good thought.

What thought do you hold in your heart every day and night? Is it good? Does it make you feel energized? Hold your thoughts safe today and they will blossom tomorrow good or bad so be careful what it is you focus on.

Quotes

Discovering a new and wonderful part of your self.

Woodland fairy houses by laurierohner.com
Do you believe there is more?

There is not one thing more thrilling than discovering a new and wonderful part of your self. The familiar energy you feel when you meet an old friend again after years apart only to find you start up exactly where you had left off. Or the wild electrified yet peaceful energy of a hike or walk in the woods alone or with a friend, human or animal. For me the energy of nature has made a big play for my attention for some time and it is like an old friend coming back into my life, this time to stay. I am finding little treats gifts from fairies all around.

For the longest of time I have believed in realms that coexists to ours and fairies nymphs sprites and nature spirits travel back and forth. I also believe the bodies we see are not our true selves but the energy propelling us through the Universe trapped inside these vessels most definitely is who we are. Tap into the ancient energy flow that exists within all of us is the uniting thread between all things and between Spirit and Nature.

Fascinated with the realm of fairies, my creating woodland fairy houses is a gift of gratitude back to these wonderful beings many think of as being fantasy. I spend hours making and cutting the branches so they fit together with notches. Building with no plan but the inspiration nature and the energy coming from the branches provides and found items I have collected on my walks. Time disappears for me in the studio and I am blissfully content working.

If you have some time please come and visit my fairy house studio here at Laurie Rohner Studio. Briar, fairy consultant and dear friend. Tucker, my furry companion, and myself hope you enjoy the visit.

I choose to be unstoppable.

inspiring quotes and images for you.

As the sun sets this evening I am listening to a news talk show. What a mixed up world. I could feel the air become stagnant. How many others feel the same? Here is a bit of positive energy coming your way. Focus on what it is in your life you want and do not let anything stop you from getting there. No matter where you are in this big beautiful, sometimes scary, world, you are courageous and unstoppable.

Quotes

Are you allowing abundance to appear in your life?

What better way could anyone spend money than back into the economy which gives more people work? What you call your economy is the exchange of human Energy. And so, think back a few hundred years about what your economy was in this nation. And what has changed? Have more resources been trucked in from other planets? Or have more people, over more time, just identified more things that they desire — and the Nonphysical Energy that is endless and infinite supplies that? We never hear any of you say, “Well, I have been well for so many years, that I’ve decided that I’m going to be sick for a while to allow some other people to be well.” Because you know that whether you’re well or not doesn’t have anything to do with them not getting enough wellness. You’re not using up the wellness and depriving them of it. And it is the same thing with the abundance. People that have managed to find vibrational harmony with abundance, so that it is flowing to them and through them — are not depriving anyone else of that abundance.

—Abraham

I love that image of trucks appearing from other worldly planets bringing more ‘stuff’ because we here want more ‘stuff’. I also have often thought if the economy is shrinking than where is the stuff going? Could it be just a misconception by humans? I am slowly believing that attitude has to change in every person alive. Think of how many us suffer because we think someone else has more and we need to redistribute the wealth and get our fair share. What a ridiculous assumption? We have the precise amount we think we should have. We the individual create that feeling or vibration. Eliminate the need to have more replacing that need with a thought of how would I feel if with no attachment and watch what will happen. What you receive may be so much more than what you thought you needed in the beginning.

Quotes

All that a belief is, is a thought that you keep practicing.

The thought that you think, you think, which attracts to it; so you think it some more, which attracts to it; so you think it some more. In other words, when you have an expectation, you’ve got a dominant thought going on, and Law of Attraction is going to deliver that to you again, and again and again. And you say “The reason that I believe this, is because it is true.” And we say, the reason that you believe it, is because you’ve practiced the thought. All that a belief is, is a thought that you keep practicing.

—Abraham

What is the dominant thought you have about your self? your life? your work? your ability to succeed? Think long and answer truthfully and if the answer does not align to what you want/desire change the thought and belief. This is why affirmations are great because with practice you change your belief.

Quotes

All you ever need is a vibration of Well-being.

As your world or your government, or individuals within your government, make decisions about what is better for you, and as they try to protect you from every possible potential experience, your lives become rather cumbersome, don’t they? All you ever need is a vibration of Well-being.

—Abraham

How can you eat lamb?

I picked up an ad today from my local food store. On the front is a leg of lamb and realized how many years it has been since I ate lamb. Though I agree lamb is sumptuous, I have to ask how can anyone sit down and enjoy a meal with leg of lamb? No lamb or veal because I keep seeing these precious faces looking back at me.

I see raising animals for their milk to make cheeses or their wool for clothing and blankets. So enjoy that leg this holiday and think of that adorable sweet little lamb’s face as you stuff your own.

Finding answers within not outside of your self.

All these questions swirling in my head, looking at my life and being convinced it is all not going my way, not even a bit. Tired of getting up in the morning and by nights end glad to see the day ending. I have felt as if my life was wrong, in limbo, as if I stood just a second off of what reality should be. Caught in a Dr. Who scene or time warp but definitely disconnected from me. Re-connecting has been tricky. Slowly I am answering these questions because the answers are not outside of me, no one can give them to me, but within. Nothing has done this to me, only I have done this to me, which was the first answer. When I discovered all my thinking about my life is wrong than I can switch to all that I can think is right. Things I viewed not working are being illuminated with solutions.

It is horrible to be broken into pieces. The one thing I know, if you stick with it you will discover the answer within you and life will change. All the problems in the world are outside and you can allow them in or not. You can create your world the way you feel, emotionally and logically, your way. That is it. No big message or purpose to discover, think how light you feel now.

Realizing the more I thought my life, closer to the point, me was broken, the greater the strain and guilt I felt because inadvertently I created this life. Just as any habit is hard to break free from this type of thinking may be even more difficult to learn. Implementing daily I find is the only way to correct what has become a lifetime bad habit.

The turning point was a dream. I talked with my wonderful now passed over Mom and she was standing in a field of wildflowers, the scent in the air was her Windsong perfume and there beside her were the boys, two dogs as they had so many times before, waiting for me to greet them. An intense feeling came over me of warmth and love, and in my head I could hear everything being said, like a computer being downloaded with info. Her eyes were a brilliant blue and her hair was wavy and blew in the breeze. I did not want to leave. There was a pop of light and I was back here and Tucker (my dog) snoring gently on the floor. It took several days to sort everything out.

She, my dogs, all those who have lived before me are here and if I would just stop getting in the way I can feel them around me. Since I have worked on grounding and connecting to the energy flows, angels and spirit guides, my energy is up and my creativity is sky rocketing. The biggest problem now is there is not enough of it, time.

Messages from spirit are important and we seem to make little of these signs saying it is in our heads or imagination. The dream was real, making the message important and given for a reason. Listen feel and believe what you feel in your heart because all is heard on the other side, which is one step over.

Something to ponder from my favorite beings Abraham Hicks.

 

You are magnificent beings, in the perfect place at the perfect time, unfolding perfectly, never getting it done, and never getting it wrong. Be more playful about all of it. “Today, no matter where I’m going, no matter what I am doing, and no matter who I’m doing it with — it is my dominant intent to look for that which I’m wanting to see. I’m wanting to find thoughts and words and actions that feel good while I’m finding them. For in doing so, I am, in the moment, practicing the art of allowing all that I’ve been telling the Universe I’m wanting, for all of the days of my existence

—Abraham
