Make this Friday the 13th special.

Celebrate the natural changes unfolding around you today and throughout the weekend. No matter how slight the changes in your part of the world, notice the subtleties, savor them and more importantly, the winds of change within you.

Let go and let things fall into place.

Start by doing something fun! Engage your senses! Wallow in wonderful!

Enjoy!

Woo hoo! It’s Monday

It’s the beginning of a whole new week!  All sorts of possibilities lie ahead for you. Wonderful moments you never expected are waiting  – sweet moments with your children, your friends, your family. Productive moments with colleagues or clients. Proud moments as you tackle and accomplish projects new and old.

Take a new turn this week and start paying more attention to the positive, amazing moments in your past and present, rather than anything else that happens.  Learn how to wallow in the wonderful as you create new inroads for yourself.

away-494355_960_720If you find your yourself merging onto the highway of negativity, instead of mindlessly yielding, why not tap your brakes and

  • ask yourself, “Is this truly how I want to spend my time?”
  • Then take a deep breath, exhale and smile through the crazy,
  • as you remind yourself and savor some of the special and/or awe-inspiring moments you have experienced in the past or that are waiting to be enjoyed in the present.

Psychologist and best-selling author, Richard Hanson, Ph.D.’s notes that rerouting your thoughts and “taking in the good” immediately relaxes you and opens new pathways in your brain.  Daily travel on these positive paths will map out stronger, more direct access to Sunday-drive type routes which, over time, will leave a lasting impression on your brain and in your heart and can help you navigate life from a lighter, gentler perspective.

Please note: I am not asking you to deny the stress, frustration or sadness in your life – I encourage you to identify and admit that you are feeling those feelings, and then to simply take a much-needed detour around the mental pile-ups you create when you place too much emphasis on the bumps and potholes in life. We all do it, but I promise you, taking in the good is a better way to go!

Try it, reset your mental GPS this Monday morning, and see where the new ride takes you.

Note to self

Whatever you put your attention on will grow.

The frustrating, the bad, the ugly.

The amazing, the loving, the kind.

You get to choose.

Your life will respond accordingly.

Same old stories hurt our hearts

Don’t let your stories or your past hold you back or control your future. There are happier, more fulfilling ways to live, I promise. Connect with the feelings they may have brought – fear, sadness, anger, but don’t let the stories define you.

Change your future by letting go of the way you tell the story of your past. Rewrite your history by finding and focusing on the good. It’s scary I know, your stories are a part of who you are, but try it and see what happens. It may be the key to a happier you. It was for me.

“The mirror image of suffering is the truth. Try it. Change the story. Change the course of your entire history. Right now.”


“You want me to lie about my past?” Diana wipes tears from her face with the back of her hand.”


“No, to tell the story a truer way,” says Herself. “Any story can be told infinite ways, dear, but listen to me. Listen well. If a story liberates your soul, believe it. But if a story imprisons you, believe its mirror image.”

~ Diana, Herself: An Allegory of Awakening by Martha Beck

Your starlight destiny

I once saw the sky so filled with stars I could barely contain my joy, I truly thought I might burst! Millions of twinkling, bright lights connected in web-like patterns in the sky, existing on their own with no help from anyone.

Stars

Before seeing them, I could not fathom their existence, not in those quantities, not with such brightness and clarity. But there they were, as they always had been, sky high and magnificent.  Waiting for me to discover them.

Your destiny is like that – unfathomable as yet, but sky high and magnificent.

Trust and enjoy!

Starlight regards,

Patrice
