True Forgiveness

0

Posted by Sallie Justice | Posted in Newsletter | Posted on 19-10-2021

Do you consider yourself friendly? How about helpful? Are you a good communicator?

If so, then you probably have the first level of the Peach Power of Sharing locked in. 

So let’s look a little deeper. What happens when you’re angry with someone for a perceived slight, or you feel hurt, or pushed away?

Are you still friendly, helpful and a good communicator? Or does the grudge you’re carrying suppress those traits?

One of the beautiful strengths inherent in the Power of Sharing is the ability to forgive. This is the aspect of this Power we want to talk about today. If you’ve ever noticed how the little grudges you’re holding on to make you feel less than friendly with others, then you’ve seen how these concepts connect.

Those little grudges can siphon off a lot of your life energy leaving you drained and feeling anything but ‘peachy’. Here are some cues that your Power of Sharing could use some strengthening:

  • You’ve lost good friendships because you couldn’t figure out how to forgive and move forward after something ‘went down’.
  • You find yourself acting fake when you see your boss or that neighbor you had a run-in with, smiling on the outside, but seething on the inside.
  • Sometimes you punish your spouse by not talking to them or withholding love when you’re angry with them…occasionally turning a small disagreement into a full-blown argument.
  • You ‘forgive’ someone because you know you should (it’s the spiritual thing to do) or because you need to in order to get by (like a boss), but in fact you’re stomach is tight or you feel tense or angry whenever you see that person.
  • You’re still processing with your therapists all the anger and resentment you feel about how your family treated you when you were young.
  • You beat yourself up for all the things you think you could’ve done better or differently….how you’ve handled your money, how you’ve treated your health, how you treat your kids, etc.

 
“Unforgiveness is the poison you drink every day
hoping that the other person will die.”

~Debbie Ford

 

What’s a quick and easy way

 

to free up your energy?

 

 

Forgiveness is not about condoning another’s hurtful actions, it’s about allowing the past to be what it was for you, and to choose to not bring your negative feelings and perceptions about it forward any longer.

Otherwise you keep yourself chained to those events or people –
you keep it alive within you – and you carry it with you wherever you go.

It’s a very heavy burden to carry around and you end up
crippling yourself emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically. And the only way to lighten your load is your decision to lay it down and move forward.

 

 Forgive yourself and others and reconnect

 

with your warm and friendly nature.

 

Tap into your Power of Sharing – it will make your life so much easier!

  • You’ll heal old friendships and keep the current ones healthy and happy.
  • You won’t develop ulcers from the unresolved grudges burning inside, and when you see those people you used to have anger toward you’ll feel peace and freedom, and be able to be real with them.
  • You’ll find loving ways to get through those difficult moments with your spouse quickly and without creating unnecessary damage.
  • You won’t forgive someone ‘because you should’. You’ll forgive because it feels better than hanging on to the hurt.
  • Those victim stories of your childhood will transform and the resentment blocking you from having a totally loving relationship with your family will melt away.
  • You’re confidence will go up, the misery will go down, and your health and sleep will improve because you’ll be less judgmental and more accepting of your actions and choices. 
 

Wake up the Power of Sharing

 

in your life this week

 

with the following exercise!

 

1) To help strengthen your Peach connection, take a few drops of Sharing Vibrancy Essence, if you have a bottle. (You can order it HERE!).

2) Next, saturate your thoughts with these affirmations:

I share with others.

I am friendly, helpful and communicate easily.

I enrich other’s lives with my practical advice.

I am forgiving.

3) Who is one person you’ve never been able to forgive? Someone that did something, said something, didn’t do something, didn’t say something, or in some fashion crossed one of your personal boundaries. “No more,” you said. And out of your life they went. (Keep in mind this might even be a part yourself!) But likely, not out of your mind.

4) Here is a little exercise to help this person pass through your mind more easily from here forward:

  • In a quiet uninterrupted moment, bring the person you haven’t forgiven to mind.
  • Where in your body do you notice feeling the most pain or hurt associated with this person? Place your hand on that area.
  • Soothe that area for a while with the warmth of your hand.
  • Assure this area of your body that you will protect and care for it going forward. You will do this by providing it with  feeling experiences of love and empathy. The past was what it was, but from here forward, you agree to choose thoughts about this person that will generate those more positive feelings.
  • Thank your body for carrying this burden for so long, and thank this person for giving you the opportunity to learn how to lighten the load on your mind, body and spirit so that you have more energy for sharing freely with others.

 

Here’s to releasing those

 

grudges and forgiving easily!

What Inspires You?

Posted by Sallie Justice | Posted in Newsletter | Posted on 07-09-2021

Inspired! …juiced, ignited, filled to the brim with a sense of wonderment and magic! Is this you? Maybe not every day or all the time, but would you say you have a general feeling of being ‘lit up’ by life? Kinda like that childlike spark just never left you?

If you do, consider yourself among the fortunate. Life events and circumstances can take a toll on many people’s ability to feel inspired, especially in recent years.

What is it like to live without inspiration?

Boring…

Burned out…

Depressed…

Food is bland…

Conversations are dull…

Relationships are mediocre…

…The sky is always grey…

AKA, you’ve lost connection with the Apricot Power of Inspiration.

  

Who wants that when

 

it’s possible to feel a spring in your step

 

and sparkle in your eye?

 

 

Whatever wakes you up to the wonder of life

 is the key to your inspirational liberation.

When you’re lit up with the Power of Inspiration, you will…

  • Be full of ideas and the passion to take action!
  • Feel enlivened by nature, art, food, movies, and new ideas.
  • Smell the fresh air, savor the yummy food, and feel that spark of aliveness in everything you do.
  • Never settle for the ordinary, and never be bored. You’re alive with sizzle!
  • Let that creativity inside you burst forth, and have fun tweaking all the things that aren’t great in your life – like your relationships – until they’re so fantastic you want to shout from the mountaintops.

Where do you find your sparks of inspiration?

It may be more nuanced or simple than you might think. Here’s a little story we like by Andre Kostelanetz to illustrate this point:

“We found Matisse living in a small house, with a magnificent, sweeping view beyond his vegetable garden. In one room there was a cage with a lot of fluttering birds. The place was covered with paintings, most of them obviously new ones.

I marveled at his production and I asked him, ‘What is your inspiration?’

‘I grow artichokes’, he said.

His eyes smiled at my surprise and he went on to explain: ‘Every morning I go into the garden and watch these plants. I see the play of light and shade on the leaves and I discover new combinations of colors and fantastic patterns. I study them. They inspire me. Then I go back to the studio and paint.”

Of course we like this story because we are gardeners! Right now one of our favorite things is watching the yellow finches eat the seeds from our sunflowers.

What does it for you? What lights you up?

Wake up the Power of Inspiration

 

in your life this week

 

with the following exercise!

 

1) To help strengthen your Apricot connection, take a few drops of Apricot Inspiration Vibrancy Essence, if you have a bottle. (You can order it HERE!).

2) Next, saturate your thoughts with these affirmations:

I am full of wonder.

I am inspired.

I perceive the nuances of life.

I live an inspired life.

 

3) Now, for the possibly not so easy, but fun part. Exploring what lights you up can be difficult at first, especially if you’ve strayed far away from such things. To help orient you in a rather playful way, go to this link and take this QUIZ. You may not relate to all the possible answers, and you may be annoyed by the pop up ads, but give it a go just for fun. It just might help you reconnect with what does genuinely wake up your natural Power of Inspiration.

4) Then find little ways to bring more of that into your life this week…and then maybe every week. Enjoy!

Live inspired!

Accessing Your Wisdom

0

Posted by Sallie Justice | Posted in Newsletter, Spiritual Connection | Posted on 26-08-2021

When the Power of Wisdom is strong and healthy within you, you “get” the spiritual connection behind everything. With this deep sense of the underlying meaning of life events, you can wisely deal with the everyday surface stuff.

But without this Power, you might find yourself in some pretty uncomfortable places. Do any of these familiar to you?

  • You’re so bogged down with job, family responsibilities, financial stress, and challenging world events, you feel like life has lost its true meaning.
  • Your soul feels like its withering and dying of thirst in the desert.
  • You’re sick and tired of suffering in the dark with no real answers.
  • Anxiety and fear are the current dictators of your life.
  • You feel lost and alone in the world, like a child separated from your parents at a carnival.
  • Sometimes you just shake your head and think to yourself, “What is it all about? What’s the point?
  • You wonder, with all the deeply troubling events and situations escalating in the world right now, IS there even a deeper meaning??

What if you didn’t have any visual depth perception, and everything appeared in 2D like on a flat screen? You would bump into things, you wouldn’t be able to catch a ball hurtling toward you, and you definitely couldn’t drive a car. Being low in the Black Gold consciousness is similar – only what you’re lacking is spiritual depth perception.

 

Find the treasures hidden

 

underneath the surface of life.

 

If ever there was a time to access your Black Gold wisdom, it is now. Bumping up against and battling difficult circumstances on the surface of things is one, and very common, way to attempt to deal with what is happening. But that is only marginally satisfying since without a deeper understanding, it is more difficult for your actions to be wise and comprehensive, and to lead to meaningful outcomes.

But if you dive deep, look beyond, search for the meaning and ask the big questions, chances are you will come back from the depths with an understanding that will help you in unexpected and mysterious ways. When your Power of Wisdom is alive and well, you will….

  • Find meaning in all the moments and experiences of your life – whether you’re paying the bills, driving your child around, or sitting in meditation or prayer.
  • Feel your soul singing with the awareness of the spiritual essence that saturates your being.
  • See the underlying meaning behind what happens in your life and feel comforted by the realization that there are no “accidents”.
  • Relax into life, and let yourself be guided by a deeper truth, rather than be distracted by some scary or crazy event appearing on the surface
  • Develop an internal sense of the interconnection of all beings and the vast Universe you live in….which includes you!
  • See your life as a spiritual journey to be lived, and not just a collection of random events that torment you.

Wake up the Power of Wisdom

 

in your life this week

 

with the following exercise!

 

1) To help strengthen your Black Gold connection, take a few drops of Black Gold Wisdom Vibrancy Essence, if you have a bottle. (You can order it HERE!).

2) Next, saturate your thoughts with these affirmations:

 

I love to think.

 

I think deeply and with clarity.

 

I trust and rely on my deep wisdom.

 

I delve into the mysteries of life.

 

3) Now, what is one big question that has been nagging at you lately? Something that you almost beg the Universe to reveal to you to help bring you a deeper understanding, and to guide your way. Something that you hope will ease your sense of confusion and lack of grounding that you may currently feel.

4) Ponder until your question comes clear. Then write it down succinctly, as though it were a koan that you are committed to unraveling.

5) Take this question with you into a chosen quiet time or meditation. (You can actually keep the written version with you at the time.) Commit to holding this question in your consciousness, remaining receptive to any deeper wisdom that may present itself. Have no time table. Have no agenda. Just dive deep and let wisdom speak to you in its own time, and in the words you can ultimately hear most clearly. Watch as your Black Gold nature reveals itself.

 

It’s not so much the answers that draw us.

 

It’s the search that enlivens us.



“…if we thoughtfully proceed, if we recognize with equal sensitivity
 the vision of objective science and the revelations of deep introspection,
 we move from information to insight, knowledge to wisdom….
The best of journeys rarely lead to definitive answers.
They simply lead to more questions.”

Gotham Chopra

~ author of “Walking Wisdom”

Here’s to a deep dive!

Celebrate Your Gifts and Talents

0

Posted by Sallie Justice | Posted in Newsletter | Posted on 12-08-2021

If you travel frequently in the world of social media, you may find yourself wide open to the opinions and critiques of others about who you are and what you’re about. At a minimum, this experience can easily distract you from the natural maturing process of uncovering and living into your innate gifts and talents. At the most, it can be painful and traumatizing to process being unseen, misunderstood or unappreciated.

Do you find yourself making any of these comments to yourself or others as you scroll through your feed?

  • I wish I had thought of a wittier thing to say.
  • I don’t have any accomplishments nearly as impressive as that person.
  • They are so successful. I’ll never be able to make that much money.
  • Of course my friends take the most amazing trips. They deserve it. I’ll never be able to do that.

If that’s your self talk, then let’s get you a dose of the Purple Gold Power of Creativity.

“Creativity!?” you say? “I’m not creative. I don’t hold a candle to all these people posting about their accomplishments!”

First of all, it’s impossible to get through a day as a human being without being creative. And if you know anything at all about the Vibrancy Path, you know that WE know that everyone is uniquely gifted and talented! That’s what the Vibrancy Signature is all about. It spells out in black and white…well, in living color, actually…what’s extra special about you.

Even if you show no signs of being a born Picasso, that seed of creativity lurks deep inside in a very special way unique to you. Creativity comes in many forms, and shines through you in ways you may be overlooking or taking for granted. When you widen your view, you can discover the artist that you really are!

You may be out of touch with your Power of Creativity if you…

  • Took it to heart when your grade school teacher told you that you weren’t artistic.
  • Feel like some people are just born gifted, and that they have something special that you don’t.
  • Are convinced there isn’t a creative bone in your body, simply because your drawings of people are always stick figures.
  • Try to write something only to find that all the words seem to flee, and you’re left staring at the blank screen.
  • Your inner critic has a lot to say, and leaves you feeling empty, unworthy, or just plain down on yourself.

Creativity comes in many “shades and colors.”

 

Notice how it shows up in you!

 

The Power of Creativity is in each of us, regardless of age, gender, background or childhood! As with all the Vibrancy Powers, this is a light frequency, flowing through your body, just awaiting your awareness and channeling.

When you’re connected to the Power of Creativity, you:

  • Know you’re creative no matter what anybody else says, because you can feel it inside just waiting to come out!
  • Realize that creativity takes many forms, and you celebrate the unique way it flows through you.
  • Don’t waste time judging yourself for what you can’t do. Whether through writing, dancing, music, art, speaking, parenting, or how you live your everyday life ~ you connect deeply with your own artistry and it shows.
  • No longer think you’re “less than” those you see posting online. Instead, you enjoy and appreciate the many different ways people express their own gifts and capacities. And you celebrate your own!
  • Open the gates and let those juices flow, knowing that there’s no one “right” way to express the creativity that lies deep inside.

Wake up the Power of Creativity

 

in your life this week

 

with the following exercise!

 

1) To help strengthen your Purple Gold connection, take a few drops of Purple Gold Creativity Vibrancy Essence, if you have a bottle. (You can order it HERE!).

2) Next, saturate your thoughts with these affirmations:

I am special.

I am gifted and talented.

I express my artistic nature.

I nurture the creative gifts in others.

3) If you know your Vibrancy Signature and still have your Color pages, get them out and read back over them. Don’t have your pages any more? Check out this link: Vibrancy Signature Ebook and Your Power Primers. If you don’t have your Vibrancy Signature, no worries. Read on for a brief Purple Gold exercise.

4) Next time you read or see someone that is expressing in a way that you “wish you could,” take these next three steps:

  • Move your body into a totally different position.
  • Then think or say how much you appreciate the gift that person obviously has.
  • Finally, follow up with something you do naturally that others really look to you for, or appreciate in you. Or something you, if you stop and think about it, really appreciate about yourself. Enjoy that thought privately in the space of your own mind and heart. Or write it down in and read it back to yourself to anchor the experience of self appreciation for your own specialness.

We affirm the creativity in you!

Finding the Strength to Be Honest

0

Posted by Sallie Justice | Posted in Newsletter | Posted on 29-07-2021

Let’s face it. Telling the truth has a way of keeping your life uncomplicated, and your conscience clear. But sometimes when the stakes are high, or you are afraid to admit something, you might feel like you lack the strength to be straightforward.

That’s a cue that you may need to bolster your Power of Honesty, the energy inside that is solid as an oak tree when it comes to your words and actions being sincere, direct and trustworthy.

This question of being honest is twofold:

First, what is the truth? What is your truth? That can be a hard one since what seems to be the truth today, can shift a week or a month from now, the more you learn and understand…about yourself, about a situation, about life.

And, two, how do you speak the truth without putting a wedge between you and someone else, without putting others out of your heart? That too is not easy, since truth telling can be pretty bold and uncompromising at times, and can easily tip into the arena of harsh, hurtful and devisive.

By bringing these two elements together, though…truth and love…our chances of bringing more genuine honesty into the world in an impactful way will only increase.

So, what if the Power of Honesty seems to be in short supply in your life? It may look like this:

  • You don’t want to hurt your friend’s feelings so you bend the truth a little, but then feel guilty and confused about which was better, the white lie or the pure truth.
  • You paint yourself into a corner with one little lie, and then feel all the stress of continually covering your back to keep the real truth hidden.
  • You find your own morals slipping when something you really want (like a lot of money) or care about (well being for everyone) is at stake.
  • You feel betrayed in a relationship because someone lied or cheated…then you remember all the early warning signs that this person lacked integrity, and you wonder how you missed them.
  • You cut yourself off from potentially healthy, workable relationships and situations, because you’ve been lied to so many times that you just don’t know who to trust any more.
  • You feel like you’re a bad judge of character because you can never tell if someone is going to act with integrity or turn out to be dishonest, misleading or outright slimy.

Why not let the truth set you free?!

When you’re connected to the Red Power of Honesty, you’ll:

  • Tell your truth with care and confidence, no longer letting fear get in your way of being honest.
  • Sleep well at night, knowing that you haven’t said or done anything dishonest….you’ve been true to yourself.
  • Find that people want to work with you, because they know you’re a straight-shooter.
  • Realize that it isn’t worth the complication, guilt, and hassle to cheat on your taxes, mislead anyone, or bend your morals.
  • Not be so quick to blindly trust others, relying on your inner sense of whether or not people are speaking and acting from truth.
  • Notice when something isn’t adding up in your dealings with other people, and be willing to speak honestly to that

Wake up the Power of Honesty

 

in your life this week

 

with the following exercise!

 

1) To start off on a “Red foot”, if you have a bottle, take a few drops of Red Honesty Vibrancy Essence. (You can order it HERE!).

2) Next, saturate your thoughts with these affirmations:

I tell the truth.

I am strong and honest.

I am a hard worker.

I stand for justice.

3) Now, pick a day…any day…and commit yourself to just noticing every time you aren’t totally honest. In each situation, take note of these three things:

  • what were your thoughts, both leading up to the exchange and right afterward?
  • how did your body feel, and where did you feel it?
  • how did your energy shift or change?

4) Continue to be mindful of this deeper, more subtle experience of those moments when something other than the truth slips into your interactions.

5) And lastly, the next time you clearly notice yourself sidestepping the truth, challenge yourself to find a way to be truthful, yet caring, in that exchange.

Live the truth!

Keeping Your Cool

Posted by Sallie Justice | Posted in Newsletter | Posted on 15-07-2021

Summers can be hot and intense. Have you been too lately? Have you been losing your cool more than you’d like?

Call on Blue Gold with

 

the Power of Patience!

 

Blue Gold energy is full of love and devotion for the people, pets, projects and scenarios that you are most committed to.

Whether it’s your spouse, your children, your staff, your garden, or your latest project at work that you’ve dedicated your care and energy to, this Power can help you stay cool, calm and collected even when things get challenging.

Blue Gold helps you to tenderly accept and tolerate the inevitable delays, interruptions, or struggles that you may encounter along the way as you nurture whomever and whatever you care about. Rather than burn up with frustration, or blow up at others when you hit a bump in the road, the Power of Patience keeps connected to your love and devotion.

 

Here are some things you might notice with

 

the Power of Patience strong and healthy: 

 

  • In relationship with someone you love, it’s easy to slow down and find a rhythm together, instead of just rushing ahead with your own agenda.
  • You don’t mind repeating things many times over for your ultra-inquisitive young child.
  • You show up every morning for your garden, tending to whatever is needed to help it stay healthy, happy and productive, even if there are a million other things you feel you need to be doing. (We personally know this one.)
  • You don’t worry or complain about what you’re missing, when your desk is piled high with all the elements of the latest creative project you’ve devoted yourself to.
  • The extra work that it takes to nurture your new puppy or your aging beloved dog doesn’t phase you.
  • You know that healing yourself doesn’t happen overnight, so you don’t pressure yourself to be better, faster or stronger than you already are on your current path.

Could you use an extra dose of Blue Gold right now?

To wake up the Power of Patience

 

in your life this week, try this:

 

1) First, steep yourself in these Blue Gold affirmations:

I am patient.

I am loving and even-tempered.

I consistently nurture myself and others.

I transform by loving others.

2) Consider something or someone in your life that you’ve been unusually impatient with lately. Contemplate these questions:

  • How committed am I to this person, project or situation, on a scale of 1 – 10, say.
  • If it’s 7 or less, what do I need to do to change that? Recommit? Renegotiate? Be honest with myself, and conclude my commitment?
  • If 8 or more, what would help me reconnect with the passion I have for this person, project or situation so that that is what motivates me, rather than the difficulties?
  • In considering these questions, what one action has become the most obvious one for me to take first?
  • Take that one step, and allow yourself to be more nurturing with yourself and others.

 

Keep cool!

No More Brain Fog

Posted by Sallie Justice | Posted in Newsletter | Posted on 22-06-2021

In a world of endless stimulus and information, do you find your brain just shutting down and going “offline” a lot?

It’s healthy to deliberately take a mental break periodically to refresh yourself. But it can be anywhere from annoying to scary to notice your brain dipping into a fog, forgetting things, or just shutting down all together.

Call on The Power of Concentration!

Green is the energy that bypasses emotion and perception, and goes straight to the facts, the data, and clear logical thinking.

Though we humans are very nuanced and complicated creatures, this Power is very straight-forward, and it’s one we all need to be able to access consistently. It’s hard to succeed at anything if we can’t process information, tap into our knowledge base, or remember important facts.

When you are strong in the Power of Concentration:

  • Your mind is like a steel trap and you easily access your memory bank when you need to.
  • You don’t panic when you want to introduce someone. You get their name the first time, and it sticks.
  • You easily use technology to process all the information you don’t want to, so you have room in your brain to process what you do.
  • Thinking clearly is your new normal. Trivial Pursuit? Jeopardy? Engaging in intelligent conversations? Where you put your keys? No problem!
  • That sharp mind of yours comes up with a system for quickly and efficiently managing your emails, plus all the data and the information that flies across your desk every day.

Wake up the Power of Concentration


in your life this week


with the following exercise!




1) The next time you notice you have brain fog, stop. Bypass any tendency to freak out or judge yourself. Just stop and take a few deep and relaxed breaths.

2) If you have a bottle, take a few drops of Green Concentrate Vibrancy Essence. (You can order it HERE!).

3) Then imagine putting a thinking cap on:

3) Next, saturate your thoughts with these affirmations:

I am smart.

I concentrate easily.

I am efficient and systematic.

I offer logical solutions.

5) Now, still with your imaginary Green Thinking Cap on, trust that you have direct access to all the Brain Waves of the Universe, and tune in. Allow the factoid you need most to settle into your brain. It may take less or more time than you expect, but stay in Green mode by not getting distracted by emotion or perception. Just wait for the download of data that you want to access.

6) When it has arrived, thank and celebrate your brain and it’s amazing capacity to provide you all the data you could ever need!

7) Keep taking your Green Vibrancy Essence and doing the affirmations above regularly to support your brain in being ever more efficient.

Enjoy your smart self!

Does the state of the world overwhelm the part of you that so wants to help…but doesn’t know how? We never tire of the wisdom in this little story that may reassure you:

It’s all too common for people to feel like they have nothing to contribute unless they are wired for massive action. Not so! When you are tapped in the the Blue Topaz Power of Altruism, you understand that all small efforts together become massive action when it comes to lending a supportive hand to the those in need.

Strengthen your connection to Blue Topaz energy, and shift your mindset toward who you are, what you have, and what you naturally can give that is true to your own Vibrancy Signature. Your Vibrancy Signature is an excellent tool for knowing what circumstances and situations will feed you rather than drain you. This all important when committing your valuable time and energy to things that are important to you.

And remember…

I make a difference in the world.

I feel deeply about life.

I know my purpose and have a mission.

2) If you know your Vibrancy Signature Powers, consult each one of them to ask what they enjoy doing that you know will benefit someone somewhere, providing some of the support and care needed and deserved. Write down 1 for each of your 5 Primary Powers.

3) If you don’t know your Vibrancy Signature Powers, write a list of 5 things you already like doing that can be considered beneficial to some member of society (four legged or two) who often gets overlooked.

4) Whether you did #2 or #3, choose just one action from your list  that you can take this week…something you consider to be a contribution to humanity that you can uniquely offer.

6) Take it. That’s your starfish!

Make your mark!

Know Where You’re Headed

“If we keep going in the direction we are headed,

we will end up where we are going.”

~ Chinese Proverb

 

“But… how do I know if where I’m headed is where I should be going??” you ask?

Call on the Emerald Power of Precision to hone in on the best direction…for you! This is the energy that is expert at helping you harness your attention, cut through the non-essentials, and get on with whatever is truly calling to you…rather than going down long winding roads to nowhere. At least nowhere that’s meaningful to you.

Emerald…

  • is intuitive, not getting lost in mental deliberation about this road or that.
  • is logical, able to quickly use the information you have to assess a situation clearly.
  • is not distracted by all the “pretty lights”, all the different directions you could go.
  • pays attention to what’s in front of you. “Is this where I want to keep going?”
  • looks out for and guides you around the possible roadblocks.
  • notices the things that may be tempting you away from what you really want, and alerts you not to blindly follow.
  • and, most importantly, helps you zero in on what matters to you, what is aligned with your aspirations and your values.

Essentially, Emerald helps you get to your desired destination as efficiently as possible. Like your own inner GPS system. Would you like more of that?

 

Wake up the Power of Precision

 

in your life this week

 

with the following quick exercise!

 

1) First, saturate your thoughts with these affirmations:

I see what’s going on.

I am precise.

I communicate my insights tactfully.

I offer accurate direction.

2) Now, what is the very first thing that comes to mind if asked, “What direction have you wanted to head in your life that, for whatever reason, you just haven’t?” Don’t deliberate. Go with your first response.

3) Again, tapping into your best approximation of Emerald precision, write down 3 the first three simplest do-able steps you (in your current circumstances) could take that will head you in that direction.

4) Take the first one. And if that is too much of a stretch for you, imagine yourself taking it several times today. If taking the first step isn’t enough, take the second, and maybe the third. The important thing is to allow the Power of Precision to move you one step closer in what seems like the best “right” direction for you.

And remember!

Enjoy!

3 to 1…Apparently, that’s the magic ratio that will lead you to flourishing in life, rather than languishing.

Many studies have shown that if you want to be truly and deeply joyful, creative, and open, you have to have at least three positive thoughts or feelings for every one negative thought or feeling.

It sounds easy, doesn’t it? Sure, if the Mocha Gold Power of Optimism is flowing freely through your being. But…what if it doesn’t seem to be?

  • What if you’ve succumbed to all the fear in the news?
  • Or what if life has just knocked you around one too many times recently, especially this past year?
  • Maybe you’ve soaked up the negative thought patterns of those around you who focus on all the things that have gone wrong, are horrible now, and/or will be disastrous in the future?

Any one of these scenarios (and more!) can make it hard for you to easily access this inner voice of resilience and positivity. But there is hope! Fill your cells with Mocha Gold energy, and you too can think like an optimist!

 

Bring more of the Power of Optimism

into your life this week

with the following exercise!

 

1) First, saturate your thoughts with these affirmations:

I help myself.

I think positively.

I’m self reliant and resourceful.

I transform by being optimistic.

2) Next, consider one area of your life that you feel cornered by ~ some situation, person, or event that weighs you down in some big or small way.

3) Ask yourself these four simple questions (from Byron Katie’s The Work) about the thought or feeling you have about that topic that causes you to suffer, writing down your responses :

  1. Is it true?
  2. Can you absolutely know that it’s true?
  3. How do you react (what happens) when you believe that thought?
  4. Who would you be without the thought?

Then turn the thought around so you can experience the opposite of what you’ve been believing. Write it down. Read it frequently and let it seep into your system.

4) And keep this in mind in the days to follow:

Walk on the bright side!
