The Power of a DANDELION!

PERSPECTIVE

Do you remember making a wish or gathering a bouquet of flowers?

What is Your Perspective?

Change your Mind, Change your Life.
To See Differently.  — Attitudinal Healing

We can see so much of life differently from what we were taught or have seen.  Below, listen to just a minute of what Jerry and Diane (founders of Attitudinal Healing) have to say:

Fear, Change and LOVE

We have the choice of how we want to see the world.  The good news is that we can learn to let go of our negative perceptions / perspectives and choose to see our lives, people, situations from a fear base to a love base.  In our culture we look at changing / shifting our perspective as “wishy-washy”, as a weakness.  Change can be so challenging for most of us…yet it really is a powerful strength!  To change one’s  perspective of an “Ex” relationship, painful disease, or disrespectful person, for examples, from hurt and anger to acceptance and forgiveness is a huge step…it’s a MIRACLE;  FROM FEAR TO LOVE*.

In this Awesome Attitude blog we are studying a discipline that helps us move from fear to hope / love.  This is a good thing.  It helps us see the positive in all things.  I support you and acknowledge you for you are studying something that helps to keep you happier, smiling, probably healthier and makes you less stressful.

           FEAR     –       (change perception to)     –   LOVE / HOPE       =       MIRACLE

To Do

Here is a very short list of FEAR Base and LOVE Base.  Making the CHOICE between which list is the way we want to live is what we need to do!  Do you think that any annoyance gives you the right to act out?  It takes courage to let go of that perceived right.  Even if you have been taught, or the Fear base has been your habit, at any point in life you can CHOOSE to SEE Situations DIFFERENTLY and live a life with more peace of mind…which we all really want.  We are looking for something to give us more inner peace…even if we are not at the level of totally choosing the Love Base yet.

*FEAR Base                            LOVE Base

  • Anger                                    > Kindness
  • Disrespect                            >Respect
  • Separation / Alone              >Unity / Community
  • Conflict                                  >Harmony
  • Criticism                                >Acceptance
  • Weeds                                    >Flowers
  • Frowns                                  >Smiles

The first step is to be aware of which base your Attitude and actions are in.
The second step is to have the intention to choose to change.
The third step is to pay attention and choose the LOVE base action as often as you can, over and over again until you peel back the layers of fear to the “natural” you, remembering who you really are!

I think it takes courage for us to face our challenges as spiritual people and to shift our perceptions.  I think it takes great courage for us to let go of our grievances and choose differently; to choose LOVE!

THINK LOVE  →  FEEL LOVE  →  ACT LOVE

Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love
–Mother Teresa

Love is the answer no matter the question!Heart__________________________________________________

THE POWER OF CHOOSING LOVE

THE POWER OF CHOOSING LOVE

WE DESERVE LOVE

When you think of love, do you believe you deserve it?  I think a challenge is that some people close themselves off from giving or receiving love.  They have been conditioned by someone or something else that they cannot live the bright light of a loving life…that is NOT the truth.  In that case, they are told “lies” and this blog is here to help change that. 

Conditional love is NOT real love…when someone says or acts like love depends on how you are.  Unconditional love is without expectations and is not dependent on anything; any situation or action.  Now, this is not always easy to do, but it can be one’s goal…and keep being mindful of it; forgive ourselves as we fall short and do better next time.  If someone is conditional with their love and does not have the intention of trying to live an unconditional life, then perhaps it is time to end that relationship in order to live your best life full of love. *

You are a unique and amazing person and there is no one like you.  So, choose love for yourself…just believe it and see how your life opens up to more bliss, less fear and more peace.  Choose to thrive and live with support for your greatest good and highest healing.  Live your dreams and your passion…the richness of LOVE!

I am loved, I am loving, I am lovable.  This is grounded in truth!

 

You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” ― Gautama Buddha

Sunrise

IN THE BEGINNING

Here are more thoughtful words and sage wisdom from Grand, Spiritual Masters throughout ages.  Love has been the major topic for centuries; the basis of our existence…and LOVE NEVER ENDS!

You have always been full of love and always will be.

Love never fails….  When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things….  And now abides faith, hope, LOVE, these three; but the greatest of these is LOVE.
 1 Corinthians 13; Bible

 

One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: That word is love.― Sophocles

Where there is love there is life.Mahatma Gandhi

 

Now let a new perception come to me.
Father, there is a vision which beholds all things as sinless, so that fear has gone, and where it was is love invited in. And love will come wherever it is asked. ― ACIM L#313

Enjoy yourself, spend time with your family and friends and do the things you love. When you’ve fallen in love with what makes you unique and wonderful, then you’ll be truly ready to receive more of what you’re feeling. 

LOVE RELATIONSHIPS

If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours. If they don’t, they never were. ― Kahlil Gibran 

I have used this thought above, numerous times in my life when I have “lost at Love”.  And I came to believe that if the “love” relationship is to be, then I cannot ‘make it happen’ by changing someone else or myself…unless I want to become more loving. 

*It is important to keep one’s values and not give in to unhealthy, unequal, inadequate, conditional and controlling relationships.  They are not really loving…and that is what we all want and deserve…in ANY relationship.

Loving relationship ingredients

ONE DAY AT A TIME

I start each day with prayer and meditation and opening up my energetic field to love, faith and continued hope.  This begins my intention for the day; each day.  To live in the present moment of the day which is when we CHOOSE our thoughts and actions…to choose love

I have found each day can be challenging within myself, with others, and about our country and our world.  When I hear, “What can I do? or There is nothing I can do?”  I believe lifting up our spiritual energy to expand our loving hearts has an amazing effect on all of our lives.  You never know who you impact.

Our egos tell us to be afraid and control situations and people, but the spirit of love whispers in our heart to love and give more…and open to receive.  If each of us lived Choosing LOVE as your daily intention, what a wonderful world this would be. 

Make LOVE your passion each day!

Happy people

Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love
–Mother Teresa

The POWER of a WORD

Inspiration ~ Kindness ~ Connection ~ LOVEI love Smiles

MIRROR, MIRROR; I SEE MY WORD

Happy New Year!  To start the year, I am inviting you to select “Your Power Word(s)” of the week, the month, or the year to inspire and motivate you personally, as you look at your beautiful smile in the mirror each day.  This may help you to get beyond any of your limiting beliefs of not fulfilling your prosperous, happy, awesome life you deserve!

Take time to be divinely guided.

Here are a few suggestions to begin to stir your mind:

  • Bliss, Bliss, Blissful!
  • LOVE; I am Love, I am loving, I am loveable.
  • Inner Peace; I have the Peace of God.
  • Whole and Healthy
  • The Will of God guides me.
  • Awesome Creativity
  • Forgiveness
  • Faith
  • Rejuvenated Attitude
  • I am Beautiful
  • Unity
  • Thankyou / Gratitude
  • Loyalty
  • Courage
  • More….

rocks in water

What is MY word, you might ask?  I really like Bliss, Bliss, Blissful!  That to me covers it all.  Although in my prayer or meditation time, or during some of my daily activities, I may use any of the above words!!!

Q. What is YOUR WORD? Please EMAIL me at sthiem08@att.net. *

WHAT IS THE POWER IN A WORD? 

Some say, “Your Word is your Bond.”  Florence Scovel Shinn says, “Your Word is Your Wand, so man has power to change an unhappy condition by waving over it the wand of his word.”

“Man’s word is his wand filled with magic and power! Florence S. Shinn

Heart in hands2

In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.  ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

Jesus Christ emphasized the power of the word; “By thy words thou shalt be justified and by thy words thou shalt be condemned,” and “death and life are in the power of the tongue.”  And “Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set your free.”

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” ~ Jesus Christ

Fear, doubt, anxiety, anger, resentment pull down the cells of the body, shock the nervous system and are the causes of disease and disaster.  Our thoughts and our words matter in our lives!

WORDS, THOUGHT, PERSPECTIVE

A woman at sea awoke in the morning and heard the fog horns blowing.  A dense fog had settled on the ocean with no apparent signs of clearing.  She immediately spoke the word, “There are no fogs in Divine Mind, so let the fog be lifted!”  I give thanks for the sun! (By Florence S Shinn).

What we think, we become.  All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts, we make the world.  – The Buddha

Many people have been “brainwashed” by untrue words that became untrue thoughts, such as “You are not smart, or beautiful, or talented or you are a dummy; you will never make anything of yourself” or worse.  These statements then live in the mind and can make one’s life unfulfilled, fear based and unhappy.  This person can be very hard on themselves if they continue to believe these limiting falsehoods.

It is a never-ending journey to shape our lives into the positive, uplifting, smiling, brilliant person we really are.  We can begin with reframing the WORDS we use about ourselves and our life and our world.  We can do it with loving support and continual reminders…I use stickee notes with my words on them around my home.  And choose your friends and relationships wisely to support your growing, uplifting journey.

LOVE is the ANSWER no matter the question!

INTRO TO A SMILE – 2019

Happy New Year!
I have an Awesome Surprise for you this Year…
More and more SMILES!

Introducing:

The Power of a SMILE Series…
12 months of Power Thoughts

Inspiration – Kindness – Connection – LOVEI love Smiles

What is the Power in a SMILE?

How do you feel when YOU genuinely smile?

How do you feel when someone genuinely smiles at you?  Did you smile or giggle at the cat and dog smiling?  And their sense of friendship and unity!?

This coming year I want to focus on how SMILES affect our lives and many different situations and how our attitudes effect our ability to SMILE.  First of all, I found some interesting information about SMILES!  (At least I think this is interesting!)

WHAT IS A SMILE?

According to an online Dictionary:  noun; a pleased, kind, or amused facial expression.  And the smile is the “the symbol that was rated with the highest positive emotional content concludes scientist Andrew Newberg, an American neuroscientist. 

 

A smile is formed primarily by flexing the muscles at the sides of the mouth. It is believed it takes about 42 muscles to smile….42!  Who knew?  Some smiles include a contraction of the muscles at the corner of the eyes, an action known as a “Duchenne Smile“.  Wikipedia

Whenever the mouth muscle only is activated and not the eye wrinkles, it’s not actually a genuine smile. Scientists call this the “social” smile.  Like, when someone is in on a parade float for a long time and has to smile all the while.  Or when someone smiles but really is not happy about the situation. 

Can you tell the difference, at times, when one is really happily smiling and when one is “socially” smiling?  Take some time this next week to pay attention to smiles.

THE SCIENCE OF SMILING

What happens to our brain when we smile?

“Smiling stimulates our brain’s reward mechanisms in a way that even chocolate, a well-regarded pleasure-inducer, cannot match.”

choco face childSmiling stimulates the pleasure center of our brain, greatly!

A smile can brighten up someone’s day, maybe a person is facing certain challenges in their lives, and your smile could be the sunshine that they did not know they were looking for.  I was taking a walk lately, on a beautiful day, and a lady was walking toward me, looking down with a frown on her face and I said something to her, smiling, like, “Hello, beautiful day!”  She looked up and gave a ‘half’ smile.  I hope I helped her day. 

“We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.”  
— Mother Teresa *

Smiles:
  • Inspire connection
  • Show LOVE
  • Give comfort
  • Express kindness
  • Create more smiles
  • Support our positive attitudes
  • (I wonder…) create a higher energetic level?

Everyone in the world relates to a smile…they immediately know what it means.

Questions:

  1. Who do you know that has an AWESOME smile? 
  2. What else do smiles do?
  3. What have you noticed about smiles?
