It’s Going To Be A Long Day

Just the very title of this topic sets us up for failure every time. The words we choose define our day. If we see it as going to be a long day or a quick day, then it shall be so.
The days are the same every day, but how they are perceived can change with our circumstances. Whether the day is going perfectly, as perceived, or there are rough waters ahead, our days are defined by our perceptions.
This morning, witnessing a clerk popping Tums at 5 AM at the local gym, Ani Po asks “Tums already?”

To her reply, “yes, it is going to be a long day.”

Ani Po smiles and wishes her well, knowing all that is needed is a moment of self-reflection and a moment to reconnect with the healing vibration of source. When we concentrate our thoughts and feelings with that of Love, we immediately elevate to that which we focus. Love being the highest vibration, opens us for an opportunity for healing.
Believe it or not, in this instance, we can define our whole day. If we wake up at 3 AM with heartburn, indigestion, or the like, it does not mean it has to ruin our day. If we wake up on the wrong side of the bed, we can quickly roll over to the other side. Centering ourselves in that of love, peace and joy, we are left to enjoy this beautiful day. It is that easy.

My choice of start-ups, for the day, is falling to my knees and giving thanks for another wonderful day ahead. Further asking for guidance in that of Love and all of my actions for the day to be that of Love, I start my day on the right foot. Then, no matter what comes my way, I can easily return to my knees (in spirit, not literally..but if you choose to…even better), centering my actions with that of Love.

Unfortunately there are those who see only what they see and remain in a life of misery. This does not make them right or wrong, it merely means they have not found the light. It is my wish that they do…

Stepping into the Canvas with eyes fixed on a great day. No matter what comes our way, no matter what happens around us, we have the ability to focus on having a ‘great day.’ No matter the situation or how bleak it seems, we still have the ability to have a ‘great day.’ Merely a choice…why not choose a good one?! Wishing you a glorious and syncrosensational day!

Rewriting Our Canvas

Have you ever pondered what life would be like if you changed something in your past? Were your actions different prior to a certain time period of your life? This is very common and many people dwell on what they could have done differently. Dwelling in the past, in my own experience (and scientifically proven), we remain in the past. Looking forward to the future, we step freely into a new dimension of change.

We can learn from the past, look to the future, but the reality…there is only Now. We are here because of our past and we stand at the cusp of our future. The path we take next is up to us: in the shadows of the past, towards a brighter future.

Whatever my past has brought or whatever my future holds, is a mere reflection of who I am at this moment. I Am. I Am accepting. Acceptance not just for my fellow-man, but the most important person on this planet…me. I have accepted myself, even as imperfect as I may be…I am still growing. With the shadows of the past behind, my gaze affix towards the source of light.

However, being human, as I reflect back on my past, in hopes of learning and growing, I come to a place of great pain. Pain, not of my own, but pain inflicted onto others. Before I was married, I broke off my engagement…not sure of what I was getting into. Being young…I needed to be sure of what I was about to commit to. That break in time caused great pain for my partner and in fact it caused pain that would continue for the next nineteen years.

That moment built many walls…even though today, at first glance, everything seems perfect, there is still a great wall of protection as to not get hurt again. The human psyche is an amazing tool…it can create great walls of protection…unfortunately we eventually have to take them down so that spirit may flow freely. So, we grow together, chipping away at the wonderful wall built nineteen years ago.

This lesson has many layers to it: the basic cause and effect, where actions have serious consequences and ultimately changed another individuals path; room for healing as we learn from our past and let go of the pain that was endured; opportunity of shining more light as we forgive and move on in acceptance.

As we accept all things, all actions, as great opportunities or great building blocks to who we have become, then all things and all actions have value in their meaning. Even the greatest of pain can bring more Love.

At the first layer of this lesson: If I could take back my actions on that one day in history, it would be this day. Rising to higher consciousness, I know that even this event had its reasons and needed to take place, dissolving the ego and the need to hold onto this event. Exchanging sadness for gladness, I accept my actions and trust all will be good. The difficulty with this example is the pain endured by a loved-one, at my hand.

For me, I shall forgive myself for what I have done, but then look to my loved-one with Loving eyes, knowing that all will be good. Through self-forgiveness, I am free from the pain caused by another, by myself and any thoughts in between. It is human to think about pain inflicted onto another…especially when it is someone near and close.

Whatever the remedy, may it be so in love. As for me…I wear everything on my sleeve and discuss the events, openly, that have either hurt others or the self, allowing for closure and healing to begin.

Stepping into the Canvas without judgment, allowing the painting to just be as it is intended. Seeing through eyes of faith, we see a brighter picture…painted in Love. Nature is God’s Canvas and everything in between, however we see it shall define the brushwork we use. We are the painter, the painted and the painting…with the ability to change the reality of the Canvas. With every step, every stroke of your brush…may it be in Love.
