"EVERYONE without exception is very, very special with extraordinary qualities and extraordinary powers. You just may not know it yet. The secret is to be, love and cherish yourself; it is to be your true essence. You are love and light, infinite wisdom and unlimited possibilities. Whatever you ask, you shall receive. You can have, be and do anything you want. You just need to choose what makes you happy in your heart. It is very simple. Remember, you are loved beyond measure for who you are and you are beautiful."

Spring is just around the corner – again J As the season changes from winter to spring, it is about getting ready for “change” and “new adventures” and in order to do that we need to de-clutter all the old to make room for the new. It always starts with our thoughts and beliefs.
So I trust that the words on these pages plant beautiful seeds within you and that you all grow into the beautiful shining stars that YOU ARE. May you always be your authentic self, trusting in magic, following your heart, dreaming BIG, and having fun. Remember, there are no mistakes in life, only lessons. Each day is a brand new day for you to CREATE exactly what you want.
"Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming,
we lose the excitement of possibilities.
Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning."

DECLUTTER YOUR LIFE
De-cluttering your physical space can have an amazingly uplifting effect on your mood. Feng Shui experts claim that buildings and furniture store the memories of events in the form of energy, and that by de-cluttering you can clear the energy of historic traumatic events. Whether or not you put any store in that kind of theory, nobody who has ever de-cluttered a space could deny the positive benefits of increasing the physical space in their environment.
However, physical de-cluttering can also have a cathartic effect on people emotionally. When we let go of things we've been hoarding for a long time, we often let go of emotional memories we've been hanging onto along with them (albeit unconsciously), and so by clearing physical clutter you can clear space in your head and in your heart as well as your home.
Clutter though is not only physical. We can also have mental and emotional clutter blocking the flow of energy in our lives, and clearing this out is guaranteed to help improve our emotional wellbeing. Examples include undone/unfinished tasks; people/activities that drain you of energy; remaining angry at people; busyness - filling up your schedule with activities you feel duty-bound to do, and leaving no time to nourish your soul and refresh your body.
Tips for clearing your physical clutter:
• Go through your stuff and for each item ask yourself Do I love it? Do I need it? Do I use it? If you can answer yes to any of them, it stays. If it's no to all, then it goes.
• Divide everything into four piles: Keep, Recycle, Donate and Dump. As soon as you're done, remove the items that aren't staying straight away and deliver them to their new destination.
Once your big clear out is done, avoid a new build up by clearing out little and often.
Tips for clearing your Mental/Emotional Clutter:
• Stop worrying. There is nothing constructive about worrying - it won't help you avoid the outcome you're worrying about and it'll destroy your ability to enjoy the present. When a worrying thought arises, quash it straight away and sing along with me "Everything's gonna be alright, everything's gonna be alright..." Focus your energy on what you'd like to happen instead.
• Follow through on promises and commitments. When you've said you'll do something but you keep putting it on the long finger, it drains you of energy. If you can't or don't want to see them through, then be upfront about it and withdraw your promise.
• Let go of anger and forgive. When somebody hurts you badly, it's a normal response to feel anger, and to not want to forgive. But anger is bad for your health, both physical and emotional, so it's actually in your interests to let it go and forgive the other person. Forgiving them doesn't mean you have to welcome them back into your life with open arms, it just means letting go of the memory of what they've done to you and the feelings that go with it. Maybe the other person doesn't deserve forgiveness, but don't you deserve to move on and leave the pain behind?
• Say no to people and activities that drag you down. Instead, surround yourself with people who uplift you and do things that make you feel great!
As with your physical clear out, don't make this a once-off project or an irregular purge. Develop clutter free habits in every aspect of your life, and you will enjoy an easier flow through life on a continuous basis.
Life is a process of unfoldment. It is a journey from wherever you were to where you are now, and further, it is a journey from where you are to where you want to be. This creative process of life is what we call "change." Change is just the natural Law of Mind in Action, and therefore we can with our mind, or our thoughts, guide that change.
CHANGE YOUR THINKING……. CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
Every moment of every day we have a choice to think positive thoughts that make us feel good or negative thoughts that make us feel bad. Positive thoughts strengthen us while negative thoughts weaken us. There's even scientific evidence that shows that you are physically stronger while thinking positive thoughts versus negative thoughts. We also know that positive thoughts enhance health, happiness and longevity. When we start paying attention to how we feel in response to our thoughts we'll notice that our emotions are signals that alert us to how we are thinking. Good thoughts lead to good feelings and negative thoughts lead to bad feelings.
The key is to start paying attention to your feelings and thoughts and when you are feeling bad, switch to a thought that feels good. And if you are unsure of as to what positive thoughts you should be thinking, all you have to remember is gratitude and appreciation. Being grateful and appreciative will always make you feel pepped. You may not like your job but you can be thankful you have one. You may have to drive in traffic but thank God you can see while others can't. And while your life may not be where you want it to be you can choose to believe that the future is bright and great things are happening every day. Your thoughts and perception will determine your reality. Try the following action steps this week to be pepped instead of pooped.
1. Take a piece of paper and draw a line down the middle. On the left side make a list of your common negative thoughts.
2. Now, change your perception and replace your negative thought with a positive thought. Write these down on the right side of the paper.
3. This week pay attention to your thoughts and feelings and choose the thoughts that make you feel pepped instead of pooped.
"If you always think what you've always thought,
You will always do what you've always done.
If you always do what you've always done,
You will always get what you've always got.
If you always get what you've always got,
You will always think what you've always thought."
Quantum Physics "Reality"
"Reality" is what we take to be true.
What we take to be true is what we believe.
What we believe is based upon our perceptions.
What we perceive depends on what we look for.
What we look for depends upon what we think.
What we think depends upon what we perceive.
What we perceive determines what we believe.
What we believe determines what we take to be true
What we take to be true is our reality.
So . . . We create our own reality.
“Your mind is your mental workshop. You can build anything you want in it.”
Change is never a random event; it is the logical unfoldment of an intelligent Law that is impersonal. Nor is change negative or positive, it is simply change. As Shakespeare says, "There's nothing either good nor bad but thinking makes it so." If we decide positively on where we are going and head there, we will find what we are seeking.
"Optimists are aware that the cherries of life have pits, but they are prepared to remove them. Their minds do not dwell on the pits, but on the sweetness of the cherries."
Forgive yourself for all that you are, all that you've done, all that you've failed to do, all of your misdeeds, all of your flaws, all of your regrets, all of your resentments, and all of your deep-seated feelings of fear, guilt and shame. A spiritual teacher, Emmet Fox, says, "You must be prepared to forgive yourself, for to refuse to forgive oneself is only spiritual pride."
Self-forgiveness promises us inner peace. Inner peace will guide us to creating a world where there is outer peace. When we allow ourselves to return to the deep peace that already exists inside of us, we can send that peace out to all that we love, all that we have hated, judged or begrudged. Then we can take it a step further by joining together in the most important thought any of us could ever hold -- peace for all of humankind -- peace in all of our homes, cities, and countries and ultimately peace with each other.
When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change!
Expect the best, believe the best, think the best.
Start right now by saying:
"I am receiving an expansion of more prosperity, happiness, good health and joy in my life NOW."
Thoughts expand. Be intentional and conscious with what is moving through your mind.
We receive what we want usually by getting out of the way – SURRENDER, FAITH
