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,

Go You Softly, Into Night of Day

Go You Softly, Into Night of Day

There are those who despair the day even before it begins!

There are  those who despair the day, even as it ends!

There  are those who despair the day whenever trouble wends!

… And then there will be those who don’t!

.

Those who with quiet strength manage to find a way!

Those who are standing strong, helping others in each new day!

and those, in spite of adversity – by your side do always stay.

So I say to you:

“Go You softly into night of day,

Trust in your heart to guide along the way.

And know that love spreads faster than

the fear of fear ‘can ever can’.”

Your compassion, prayers and hopes are sorely needed now for those suffering and in harms way, both here in the USA and abroad. Care, share, and help as you can.

With much affection,

Love Equals Universal Infinity Or …

When An ‘Event Horizon’ Becomes Reflected Illusion

393cc205913d4a7e951c2b80c750555f

From quantum-ness perspective

The Cosmic thinking be

a black hole is existing

in love’s reality.

But illuminate the equation

and in actuality

There’s no true “Event Horizon”

it simply cannot be.

Those hidden boundaries are

fear’s illusionary things,

while light from life and loving

Infinity it brings.

Far Too Easy

That we exist is a gift. Our life – a most special gift to each of us. We are also a gift to each other. This means all of us – no exceptions.

There are times when it seems, it is far too easy to forget this.

The thing is, in our heart of hearts we know this to be true because in our heart of hearts we do care. The caring part just gets buried sometimes with the noise of living loudly, brashly and might I say perhaps even irrationally until it takes a tragedy or unconscionable behavior for us to come together by reminding us the pureness of love that dwells within our souls.

And it’s always been there. Just waiting for us to remember the worth and value we share as a species. Meaning each and every one of us – no exceptions occur when we stop attempting to judge either ourselves or others.

Wanting to help, correct, repair, improve, change for the better and move forward is not the same as acting from a perspective of judgment. I believe human nature has proven too frequently that our judgemental decisions are often petty acts based on a premise of selfishness, greed, jealousy, fear and/or hate.

A loving heart cannot long support these negative human emotions. The need to be a part of the whole, to care, be involved, make a positive difference is written into the code of our dna.

And thank goodness we do care, we do love, we do conquer hatred and fear. Thank goodness we do overcome adversity of every kind because not only are we better than this but … 

#We Go On

Yes We Do!

Thank you. Have an excellent week. One filled with hope and love.

With great affection,

Overwhelming Life and A Temporary Cure

Sometimes life does seem overwhelming, doesn’t it? Thank goodness for family and friends both near and far and a special thank goodness for love …. and hugs, lots and lots of hugs.

Hugs are known to be an excellent therapeutic medicine for the temporary relief of life’s difficult trials (with no negative side effects – although has been shown to be addictive). ♡

Have a positive and relaxing weekend. One filled with love and hugs.

With sincere affection,

OMG, The Gorilla in the Room

image

I’m an American. Just one person, but I feel as if the “gorilla in the room” has not only grown to gigantic proportions but has taken over intelligent rational minds, many  of whom I never would have expected to belittle themselves by spreading fear and hate (or passively going along) with the use of vularity and bullying tactics.

I am proud to be an American, but am very worried about the direction we Americans are allowing ourselves to be herded towards.

Whether it is apathy, indifference or some other thing it is horrifying and more than a little scary.

I, for one, am hopeful more Americans wake up from this sick unreal “reality show” that so many are currently living with their guidance (dependence) for how to behave directly related to the deceptive and artificial media and social media world.

Just so scary … I mean really!!!!
