Life’s Internal Survival Tools … So Handy for Today!

I fear change, unless curiosity and anticipation encourage me through a newly opened door of opportunity. I hate what doesn’t agree with me unless my compassion, caring and need to understand takes charge and helps me to greater wisdom.

Reality can definitely seem overwhelming unless/until my imagination takes over and finally, I know sometimes I feel a sense of despair until my hopeful spiritual nature and dreams come forth to guide me to a better place.

Isn’t it a most wonderful thing to know that we (each) have our own internal toolbox of survival tools always available to us. If we remember to use them.

You do … Don’t you?

Be an Encourager. First to yourself and then to others! Thanks for stopping by and have a great new week to come. I wish you well.

Being Powerful

Being powerful without honor & moral values isn’t being strong at all. Rather it’s brawn made up of fear & greed masquerading as same & failing miserably. Bravery with honor and valor on the other hand is a most magnificent thing to behold.” ~Plh

Always true, from the smallest every day bravery to the largest.

 

With much affection, I wish you well.

Prisms of Fear – Yours and Mine!

Ethereal Beauty

When you look at life through lens darkened with shadowy prisms of fear everything can look wrong/bad, even futile; this includes how you view yourself, others and the nature of things happening to and around you.

Therefore, it becomes of great importance for you to know and understand that your fears have no power unless you give them same. Hatred and insecurities are fueled by fear.

And you … well you have much more internal power than you think you do. Time to be aware of this. Let your spirit loose. Be who you were meant to be. Set things up the way you want them … you know, the way that within your glorious heart of hearts and dreams they are meant to be. First in thoughts and then with your actions.

You belong to you. You are the powerhouse that feeds creative energy to your soul. Energy connected to you through Universal love, an ever flowing spiritual currency without end. Let your energy free, love filled and awash with light. The darkness of fear cannot reside here. At least not for long.

Today’s the day to begin to make it so. Be brave and never forget  … your bravery BECOMES you.

I believe in you and wish you well.

Darkness in the Light of Day

In the still of every night

The stars may still be shining bright

But Darkness in the light of day

Makes hard to keep our fears away!

*

I do not know from when to where

Cannot conceive how we can’t care.

What we’ve become to darken ways

darkening all tomorrows days.

*

Where have gone the love and joy

for every single girl and boy.

STOP, stop no more I say

THIS, this is not the way.

Brothers, Sisters are we all

All together or we fall

and fall and fall

and fall and … fall!

The Mote in Humanity’s Eye – Fear!

So how is your ‘attitude footprint’ doing?

We all hear about our individual ‘carbon footprint’ and I am a strong believer that we should cultivate responsible behavior with the use of our precious natural resources.

But just as precious as natural resources are our human resources. Recently I’ve been giving a lot of thought to the ever increasing negative ‘attitude footprints’ we’ve been leaving.

Our daily attitudes are shaped by personal situations aided and abetted by individual emotions and thought processes along with our reactions to current, local and international events as well as social media interactions.

Fear of change, fear of the unknown and fear of things that are different to each of us can easily beget judgments which too often lead to cruelty, rudeness, being mean in thought, word and deed and it appears that today these things are considered, by many, to not just be okay but normal in the everyday of things. Judging others has become prevalent in our society. Honestly, none of us is well equipped to judge others. We each have our weaknesses and shortcomings.

Yet as long as we’ve decided to ignore or be a part of what in our hearts we know to be wrong, our negative “footprint” will continue to grow.

We’re better than this. I know we are. And we can individually improve things by remembering not to judge others and by being thoughtful and considerate most especially to those who share different beliefs and opinions than we do.

May your today be good and your tomorrow even better.

I wish you well,

Love – Empowers Us to Endure (and overcome)

​♡

Love does bless with abiding strength

so deep, so strong, so pure,

nothing overcomes unconditional love

as it gives us the power to endure.” ~Plh

Love is a very small word representing the biggest meaning in the world. There truly isn’t anything stronger or greater than love and when given free reign, it can conquer fear and hate.

Love large, it does a body (and mind and soul) good!” ~Plh

Take care of you and yours.

With sincere affection,

Penny

 

When Your Focus is Fear – Refocus Your Focus

The two greatest emotions we humans experience are love and fear. Offshoots of love being happiness, hope, caring, sharing, giving, gratitude, (and other positive uplifting emotions).

Offshoots of fear are equally obvious: Hate, disdain, greed, avarice, cruelty as well as a couple of additional negatives (stemming from fear) that occur within all of us – worry and guilt.

When you are feeling fear (in any form) for any reason and it’s dominating your emotions and thoughts there is a physical routine you can train yourself to do to help diminish and in some cases remove an overwhelming fear that may be controlling your actions.

To refocus your focus:

  1. Take in a deep breath
  2. Feel yourself breathe in slowly
  3. Now feel yourself breathe out slowly
  4. Once you’re controlling your breathing, breathe from your stomach, low. Breathe the breaths deep from within.
  5. Keep the focus on feeling your breath, don’t let any other thoughts intrude.

Initially it may not be easy, but with practice it becomes so. The tension in your body will begin to melt away as you breathe in positive energy and breathe out the negative energy of fear.

Deep measured breathing also helps clear your mind of clutter – focus is then where it needs to be. You’ll be making better decisions as well as viewing things from a more positive perspective.

I hope your weekend is going well for you and continues to do so.

With much affection,

~Penny
