Theresa’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool) We Are Beacons of Light   Leave a comment

“Shine your light and make a positive impact on the world; there is nothing so honorable as helping improve the lives of others.” – Roy T. Bennett

I am reading the book “The Power of You,” by Chris Michaels. I have just finished the first chapter. The book is about our relationship with the Divine – the spiritual Presence we know by many names: God, Spirit, Creator. What we call “It” doesn’t matter.

We are all Divinely connected. Individual and unique expressions of Life; each with our own gifts and talents, and capacities for loving and giving. This is how we can truly change the world – by following our bliss; our dreams; our goals; and knowing there is a Divine Presence that wants the best for us. We are Its channels.

We add value to the world, and make a difference in the lives of others, by the simple things we do.

I recently sent a small amount of money to an elderly relative who is living on social security, and a small amount of food stamps. It’s something I learned from my father, who always impressed me with his generosity and I now follow in his footsteps, when I feel called and inspired to do so. Not from obligation, but from a place of loving presence.

We are beacons of light. We have the power to love, to heal, to care for and to bless one another, through our words, our actions, and the very essence of who we are.

I received a message from my relative the other day thanking me, and letting know that my contribution made a significant difference to her sense of security and well-being. It was a small gift, but it meant the world to her.

Our acts of kindness don’t have to be financial – they can be whatever we feel guided and inspired to do, moment by moment. And in doing so, we lift the lives of others, and ourselves, and increase the vibrations of love and well-being on our planet.

THIS WEEK’S TNT

What’s one act of kindness you can do today to make a difference in someone’s life?

It can be an act of kindness to someone you know or to a perfect stranger.

Notice how good it feels to contribute to another’s sense of well-being.

Not from obligation, or winning favor, but from a spirit of love and generosity.

And what we give will come back to us in ways we may never fathom. Like a sacred circle.

Try it for a day, a week, a month, a lifetime.

Little by little, our acts of kindness can, and do, make a difference.

It’s all a matter of practice.

If you like, try using the following affirmation from Chapter 11 of

ALPHABET AFFIRMATIONS: TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE AND LOVE YOURSELF

“MY HEART IS OPEN WIDE. I SPREAD KINDNESS EVERYWHERE I GO.

Then let your heart fill with love, and like a soothing balm flowing through you, let the good feelings fill your body.

As always, I would love to hear your comments, and how this week’s TNT works for you.

With love,

Theresa

Theresa’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool) I Am a Center of Peace   Leave a comment

Dear Friends,

Regardless of where we are in our lives, we’re likely to experience times of stress and need some gentle reminders to let go of our angst and re center ourselves.

I created a lovely affirmation as a handout for participants in my stress management workshops.  It’s short and sweet and hope you’ll find it helpful.

1.  Begin by taking a couple of  breaths, letting go of of any tension, as you bring yourself into the present moment.

2.  When you’re ready, take another breath and as you inhale silently repeat the affirmation, “I Am a Center of Peace.” Feel yourself relax as you breathe out any stress or painful sensations.

3.  Continue breathing, silently repeating the affirmation as you let go of any remaining tension. Notice the sense of peace that fills your body, as you feel the sensation to expand from head to toe.

4.  Repeat the process until you feel peaceful and relaxed.

5.  When you’re ready, take a cleansing breath, and return to the room, refreshed.

As an added benfit, you might like to print the photo below*** and hang it where you can see it, as reminder to stop and take a breath.

And for those of you living in the U.S., wishing you a fun and wonderful holiday weekend!

With love,
Theresa

Memorial Day: Creating Future Memories   Leave a comment

Preamble

This weekend, those of us in the U.S. are celebrating Memorial Day; a federal holiday established to pay homage to those who have died serving in the country’s armed forces. I dare to take it a step further, and ask that we view the holiday from another vantage point: let us remember all of our loved ones and the memories that we have and hold dear, and the memories we are in the process of creating.

If you would like a little daily inspiration, visit my Facebook page, where you’ll find tips and tools, inspirational messages, educational articles, and more. (Tip: Click “Like” to receive the posts.)  http://goo.gl/wiQofc

Memorial Day: Creating Future Memories

“When you look back over your life, you should remember not when you failed, not when you went through a divorce, not when your business went down, not when you lost that loved one, not when the boss did you wrong. That’s remembering what you’re supposed to forget…start remembering your successes, your victories, and the times you’ve overcome – that will you to step into new levels of favor.” – Joel Osteen

Our memories can serve us well or can create a mental obstacle course as we recall our past experiences and all of the reasons we can’t have or succeed at what we wish to do.

Remembering our failures (real or imagined) keeps us stuck and can lead to a lifetime of dissatisfaction and depression. Our “failures” don’t define us, they simply remind us that we need to try again or find another strategy that will help us accomplish what we desire to achieve. It all starts with a decision to say “yes” to what we want and the commitment to follow through on the decisions that we make, and in doing so, we are setting a course to create a future we will relish.  Like building muscle, working out once or twice won’t yield results, but a regular exercise program will strengthen and tone your body and have you looking and feeling great. The same holds true for our goals. We must show up and participate in making our dreams come true. The actions you take today will create new memories to inspire you.

Let the past be gone and create future memories based on the successes you achieve today. They can be as simple as “I got out of bed!” “I made that phone call I’ve been avoiding,” or “I got 15-minutes of exercise in today.” Get a journal. Write your accomplishments down. Put them on Post Its and carry them around! Use them to help you remember your triumphs and focus on those instead.

One last tip: if you have a hard time moving forward on your own, as we often do, get support from a friend, a professional, a 12-Step program, a coach, your physician, and the people in your network.

The most important thing is letting go of the memories and thoughts that hold you back from living a life you love. Recall the memories that inspire and affirm you and begin creating new memories based on the actions and decisions you make today.

Here’s to Happy Memories!

As always, I would love to hear your thoughts. Just click on the “Leave a Comment” tab at the top of the page to leave your comments.

With Love,

LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL

“Until you are ready to admit exactly what it is that you want,  you will experience confusion.” – Iyanla Vanzant 

You dreams are made of pure Light – Energy.

 A Substance from which you can create anything your imagination can conceive.

Like a painter, who takes a blank canvas and creates an

image of his or her choosing –

You imagination contains a palette of color from which you consciously

and unconsciously create your life experience.

The brush is your vision.

The design is in your heart and soul.

What do you wish to create?

Don’t like the painting?

Don’t cover the canvas with another layer of paint.

Burn it.

Then paint another, more to your liking.

Affirmation:  Life is Beautiful. I now choose to enjoy it!
