Angry People. Stay calm and keep on walking.

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!

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.

Moss greens warm browns and white birch bark glisten in the sunlight as you stand looking at a road traveled less.

I would take this path each day with the boys my Standard Poodles on our daily hikes through my property, a peacefulness serene place to walk. While you gaze at the birches you can almost smell the sweet scent of the ferns drifting by on the warm breeze.

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

I would rather be a superb meteor.

“I would rather be ashes than dust!
I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot.
I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.
The function of man is to live, not to exist.
I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them.
I shall use my time.”
~Jack London

There was a time when I delighted in sitting in a hot tub in New Jersey. One night while relaxing across the night sky shot a ball of fire, a superb meteor a fiery blaze of large spectacular beauty. I can still see it vividly in my mind’s eye.  In all its wonder did the Universe put on a show just for me. I never heard or read anything about a meteor which I thought how could anyone miss it but not one word said or written. Maybe it was a private showing?
