Every day, I made choices about who and what I was and how I felt and thought about who and what I was. Did I even realize I was choosing? Nine times out of ten, no I didn’t… until recently, when I chose to start noticing. I made a conscious decision to reclaim my decisions. I realized I was feasting at the banquet of their consequences, so why should I remain unconscious of making them? I saw myself hoping things would turn out like I wanted or wishing things were different. Totally giving my power of creation away to anyone or anything slightly more focused than myself. Yuck and gross!
This refocus allowed me to really see just how many decisions, creations, I made – or not – each day. I was speechless and sad at how small I saw myself that I wasn’t even willing to step up and claim my own well being through choices. Everything is a choice. EVERYTHING. I now exert MY choices on MY life. I now choose to sleep well and wake up refreshed no matter how many minutes my eyes were closed. I now choose to be dis-ease and pain free. I now choose to honor and respect all of myself. I believe that is the true nature of the phrase I Am. I choose all that I am.
I think this is the most valuable gift you can offer someone – the power of choice. I used to believe I was a progressive mother in teaching my now adult children how to manage life. But I was falling so short in teaching them how to empower themselves through their choices. It is the same for family and friends. It is empowerment through choices instead of rescues and shelter. I overheard a friend explain how yoga becomes easy when you “stack the bones.” The balance is just there. I believe the same is true with choices! Your choices become the bones… and the rest aligns with them. So see with what your choices are aligning!

I received guidance that I should go to the gym for inspiration. Seemed like sound advice and echoed as such. I started my work out on the elliptical glider where I tethered my ears to my phone for a joyful Pandora experience and began gliding along.
I happened to glance up at one of the twelve talking screens to spy the phrase “tweaking plan to fight Isis”. Upon seeing this phrase at the bottom of the screen, my first reaction was to laugh. It tickled me so funny. After I got over my responsive funny and delightful response of “yes, yes the part of the plan that suggests fighting is ready for some major tweaking”; it occurred to me that that may not be the emotional response that CNN was eliciting.
Luckily my exercise high was not going to let me go ponder the darker side of that, but to shed some interesting new light to it instead. This new light that sparkled or glimmered at the peripheries of the screen was a call to action. Whether CNN knows it or not, it just sent out word to all of us energy workers to tweak this plan. We have our wings and powerful connection to the light and the truth. We got this! And we can and we do and we have tweaked the plan. That feels good.
Let’s stay with that for a moment …………………………. and connect to an inspiring love tweak where we all as individuals or groups are heard and our perspectives and views of the world can be honored in peace.
The bigger piece of this experience that I share is a reminder to me and whoever else is to remember that we always have a choice about how we experience or view things, people, or events. We often let the popularly-learned fear-based emotions be the first responders to guide us about how to be with the world. It is time to exercise a stronger love-powered emotion to replace those old emotional muscles. Those old patterns do not serve us and they may even keep the news alive, but we are in a new business not the news business.
This is about being in the “now” where there is no news; as the wise ones say, no news is good news ;-).
To Trinity and beyond…….
Namaste and much love,
