I really relate to this. Jane Fonda on Netflix‘s Grace and Frankie… I’ve never watched it before but I guess I will now. I feel the same way. Sometimes all the “work” of staying young and pretty is hard.… More
I love angels. I collect figurines of them, prints and posters of angels, I love being surrounded by angels. One day I saw “Beckon Angels” on a card made by Danielle LaPorte. It spoke to me! I had a black tee shirt made with the words BECKON ANGELS on it in rhinestones! I’ve just always loved the idea of Beckon Angels.
So I put a facebook page up called Beckon Angels. Right now it serves as a place for me to put little inspirational angel notes. I am currently creating these angel notes to be for sale as little angel cards of angelic inspiration! And maybe someday turn that into a book.
It just feels good to think about Angels especially in this really mean-spirited, busy, nasty-at-times world we live in. Angels remind us to slow down, to enjoy life and to remember that we are here to shine and to serve and help others.
It just takes the pressure out of life when I think about Angels and doing good. It’s my little way of giving back. What’s yours?
Love of Angel Love,
I aspire to have a celestial mindset. I feel sometimes like the world is so insane and people are so super busy and disconnected, that the only way out of the messy loneliness and heartbreak is to go within and meditate and pray. I do a lot of praying lately. I’ve been sick with bacterial pneumonia for 4 weeks and then discovered I was dehydrated! So had to work on that for a while too… People are “busy”. I’m not sure what they’re doing that keeps them so busy, but we just don’t connect anymore. So, I decided to be proactive and choose the high road, aspire higher, look for that infamous “road less traveled” and go up there and try to stay there mentally. Not to let the angry voices bring me down. Not to let other peoples controlling and manipulative ways hurt me anymore. I observe a “quiet compliance” to keep myself in my thoughts so that I can figure out the best way to handle all that is going on. I’m being a little vague here because I don’t want to reveal all my personal stuff, but let’s just say things are not rosy… and I need to find myself alone a lot in order to cope.
The Celestial Mindset is the name of my next book. I’m working on it slowly and deliberately. It is not part of the Manifesting Princess series, however, it could be considered a spin-off of it because it is the same “gospel” that the MP preaches! Be kind. Love yourself. Don’t sink to that level. Raise your standards. That kind of thing… I hope to finish this book over the summer and release it in the fall of 2018 but we shall see! ;D
In the meantime, read this blog. I will no doubt be posting things here that will end up in the book. Like what if you’re in a miserable marriage? What do you do? What are the pros and cons of staying or leaving? How do you want to use your time? Is it worth returning to school, would you rather have a different job, relationship and/or a lot more money? Well, who wouldn’t want a lot more money!? But you get my point. We need to DECIDE what kind of life we want and if we are not in that life, HOW do we go about getting it. What steps will we take? What are we willing to DO in order to have that life?
For me, right now it’s all about my health. I’ve been sick all of 2018 and I’m sick of it. So I’m taking back my health with yoga, meditation, prayer and healthier eating. More rest, less stress. Choosing to do things that I like to do just because I like to do them. Releasing my need to be perfect. Releasing my need for the approval of others. Releasing my need of caring what other people say about me because at the end of the day – it’s not their life – it’s my life so what they say DON’T REALLY MATTER now does it? Sticks and Stones.
So please like one of my groups on Facebook… Manifesting Princess, Beckon Angels or Celestial Mindset – and you’ll see tons of positivity and that should help you navigate the very ugly world we live in! It can be really nasty out there. I am grateful that I don’t have to work in it.
Be good to yourself,
I returned to school so that I could get my Master’s in Psychology. One of the reasons is because of the recent awareness that I have BPD or what is commonly called “Borderline Personality Disorder” – this is an emotion regulation issue for people who are emotionally sensitive. If you’ve been invalidated in your childhood and/or in important relationships, and you have trouble regulating your emotions, chances are quite good that you have some level of BPD. Although I am not diagnosing, I am speaking from personal experience. I’ve made a lifetime of chaotic and disastrous mistakes and often wondered what was wrong with me and why I didn’t have those effortless lives that my friends seem to have.
As I work to become more mindful by using yoga and meditation and mindfulness training through DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) I can feel my emotions and central nervous system CALMING down after decades of Trauma and Drama! It feels good to be quiet. It feels good to listen. It feels good to be calm and to feel happiness. These are things that I address in my new book CELESTIAL because it literally is a Celestial Mindset and Attitude to get to the tranquility that I desire and that you might be interested in having as well. I’m sure that I will include this in my life coaching with clients and eventually in psychotherapy with clients someday. Being mindful is key to having a happy life and a calm, centered, focused life.
I wish for all of us a happy life. Read and study positive things and take your power back and own your life. Take the high road. Aspire Higher. Send loving vibes to others instead of hate. Love yourself. Take exquisitely good care of yourself in every way. This is what I focus on personally in my work and books.
With great love,
