Quotes

Don’t let anything stop you from finding a solution.

Today my monitor for my computer went out. First it works, then it doesn’t. Since I am not a computer savvy person at all not in the least bit and usually end up making things worst I was very upset. This is my life and everything I need to do is on this stupid machine. Anxious annoyed and getting madder by the minute because I did not have the money right now to buy a new monitor. Not only that but have held off upgrading my system till after I moved.

Why?

I knew I had to relax and though I was upset the solution was probably right in front of my face, which it was.

Is it perfect, no. Is it keeping me working and doing what is necessary for my work, oh yes. I have an old relic of a computer that had pictures on it I had meant to copy and load to my newer computer but never got around to doing so. When I was finished I intended to give the old computer to an organization. It is amazing my tardiness is what saved me with this recent dilemma. The old monitor is what I am using now. Not the fabulous LED 22 inch monitor but an old relic and it is fine.

My little fabulous old monitor.

What I am reminded is first how our society is connected in ways we mostly never think twice about. All our work and everything needed to interact with each other is in a machine. When we cannot use it – withdrawal.  Secondly when hit with a problem relax. The problem isn’t going anywhere but the solution needs to be birthed into your consciousness. It took most of my day to see an answer. Just plug in the monitor and see if it works. Wow, it did.

Now the last thing I have to mention is how I view the sites I have changed. I wonder how others see my sites? Is this the way a tablet or laptop sees them?

This is how I see the world Trees Forests Nature and Sunshine.

Path to the Birches Oil on Canvas.

We get so locked into the way we view our own world is this the way everyone sees it? Each of us look through eyes but see differently and I for one love that concept. I know I see the world with the eyes of a slightly a skewed artistic world. Never feel I fit in and like that I don’t. In many ways I feel like the outdated monitor I am looking at right now, old discarded but still has lots of life and usefulness. This little monitor I see now with different eyes. Grateful it is still here to help me see a brighter world.

Don’t stop looking for the solution to a problem, the answer will come.

Quotes

Even spiritual people get mad.

This summer I have squashed down a raging gurgle because honestly if I let it go I wasn’t sure what would happen. Not to the ones in my in my vicinity but to me on that spiritual level. The more I worked at containing and ignoring the more I depleted  my energy and overall good feelings about my self. It is a problem spiritual followers deal with and it is a false problem.

Found on buzzfeed.com

There is absolutely not one thing wrong with getting mad. Today there is too much in this world to be mad about and by thinking peaceful thoughts is not helping anyone including your self. But releasing those mad angry thoughts in a constructive way (whatever is relevant and matches the situation) works to help you and the world as a whole.

My point is good happy thoughts did not save a good man from being beheaded this past week. Good happy thoughts did not squelch the chaos in Missouri either. Sometimes you have to get mad and fight but be sure what it is you are mad about is based in fact not emotion and certainly not rhetoric.

So why am I mad? I am mad at a man playing President. I am mad at the closed-minded attitudes of people lazy to not explore and find the truth of any situation. I am mad at the media for reporting only stories they are allowed to report (not Fox). I am really made at this lazy entitled attitude that seems to be expanding in a country my deceased father wouldn’t even recognize. All the things fought for by the courage and sacrifices of the greatest generations, now but a few with us to carry on the forgotten story, is replaced with a complacency non-engaging generation of the 60’s mentality. I am mad that entrepreneur’s free thinking work hard values are being forced out leaving a huge vacuum of non-thinker, the government will take care of it thinkers. I am mad that a hand shake means nothing. I am mad at Harry Reid for sitting on 380+ bills sent by both parties because Obama says so (playing around President). I am mad.

You can still hold that wonderful quiet gentle energy inside but the world needs people to start speaking out. We need people naming the evil standing strong and more importantly standing up for every single person who stands for the same belief. A belief that though we may live in different cultures different parts of the world says each individual matters. Not one nation but a world needs to unite. Leaders need to lead and not play golf, Mr. Obama.

I was told I should wake up by someone after I posted something. People are agitated. People are confused. People are angry. I get that because it is how I feel.  I handled it by rooting out truth and discovering what is actually happening. It takes an effort on everyone’s part to seek the truth. Knowledge is powerful. Make an effort and seek out your truth, not mine but your own truth.

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

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.

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.

Vermont field of wildflowers and birch trees

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

Is Source vengeful or understanding?

Source never wields vengeance or offers punishment, for Source understands you are valuable; you are worthy; you are blessed. Source understands that you never get it done and you cannot get it wrong, and that even when you stand in a place that currently feels wrong, ultimately you will return to what feels right. You can return now to what feels right with an adjustment of your thought process and an adjustment of your vibration and a changing of your point of attraction and a finally letting in of the Well-Being that is flowing to you always.

—Abraham

I have never believed that God/Creator/Source is vengeful. When you are you become judgmental distrustful and un-loving. This never feels right. Why could anyone ever trust life? This is just my humble vibration of Well-Being, what is yours?

This is how my vibration looks to me when I connect to Source. Image from favim.com

If the goal is joy, this pink peony oil painting is the answer.

The basis of your life is absolute freedom, the goal is joy, and the result of that perfect combination is motion forward, or growth. Your goal is to find objects of attention that let your cork raise.  –Abraham Hicks

When I smell a peony my whole being elevates and wrapped in the sweet light aroma of a the flower, no problems disease troubles are present and I am filled with joy of being. When I painted this bloom I did so as a reminder of the joy. It stirs my senses and tugs at my heart and with that energy I can move forward and out of the vibration that has created discomfort. I can absolutely confirm this painting will not only get your attention but will help you move forward so your cork, too, raises.

Life is your canvas.

Today’s little inspirational thought for you to ponder.  Life is your canvas; no one can paint it but you. Each moment is an invitation to create yourself and the life you’ve imagined. Too often we wait for the “big” occasion or “just the right moment” to celebrate life. Your days are just waiting to be enriched with creative thought, joyful purpose, and inspired meaning.
