post christmas thoughts

I don’t know about you but I find myself reflecting on the past year and how much has changed… and then switching thoughts to the new year. 2011 is going to be an interesting year – I can feel already so many things shifting and changing — and its my choice to navigate the direction!! I am choosing the direction that makes me feel good!
I’m keeping my thoughts in a place of right now … as well as the Bigger Picture. The interesting thing is when I do this — the Bigger Picture is part of my Right Now…which means its actually happening so all I need to do is keep enjoying it and living it to make it keep happening.

My choice to completely change my life has been the best decision I’ve done in a really long time — its giving me new ways to see how I can feel good being me 24/7. This has been the intention for the last 10 years – how can I feel good being me 24/7.

If I Allow my Magic, Feel my Passion, Live my Love in the Present Moment while having Faith in the Bigger Picture, all I need to do is Relax & Enjoy and life manifests all that I need. WOW… I encourage everyone to find their own MPL to AFL to create their own WOW!

This next week is our time to truly appreciate all that we’ve accomplished this year to prepare for new opportunities in 2011!

I love my life

I love my life!!

I am not holding anything back in this moment, right now because I am feeling really good and I love my life!

I don’t always “like” my life … and when I have moments of feeling low energy … I want to be able to remember how good I feel right now because I LOVE MY LIFE!!

To be able to say this – sing this – dance this – feel this is exactly what I have been manifesting for years!!! I want to feel good being me 24/7 and its actually what happens most of the time.

I guess this is what “living in the vortex”, “being connected with your source energy”, “using your intuition in all areas of your life”, “forgiving yourself”, “having gratitude”, “accepting your humanness”, “allowing your Magic”, “feeling your Passion”, “living your Love” will do to your relationship with your reality.

And … I’m not afraid to say out loud, “I love my life!” because I love when others love their life!! There is enough love for all of us to enjoy!!

Its all about LOVE … it really is!!

Trickydame does what she’s most afraid of …

Which of the following do you think it is that I’m doing that I am afraid of?!

1. Pick up a stranded shark, that I saw while walking on the beach Friday night and toss it back in the ocean?!

OR…

2. Live in the present moment and truly allow myself to believe that I am worthy of receiving Love from myself and others?!

If you chose #2 – then you are correct!!! — This is true. what is it that I’m afraid of?!
TO LOVE MY LIFE as FULLY as I possibly can!! I can also say that as in my previous post, some of the “fearful” feelings are actually “excitement” however, as I began to prepare for this show – I wanted to really get to the core of what some of my “limiting beliefs” are that show up in my life and make me a little fearful of some of my dreams – my intentions – my manifestions!!!

HOW CAN I BE AFRAID OF WHAT I AM MANIFESTING!!

I can be afraid because I’m human!!! Duh!! 🙂
(I had to accept this a few years ago and it was a hard realization but it is true -I’m human, flawed perfection!!)

Join me Sunday, 6/13, @7pm est on www.blogtalkradio.com/trickydameLet’s share some of our fears and Release them into the Universe! State them and say Ta Ta!!

Scary or Exciting – let’s wait and see!!

These past few weeks, I’ve been feeling a LOT and I recognize that I’m more excited than fearful. Even when it comes to finding a job to create financial abundance – the feelings I’m experiencing are more “what is it going to be” rather than “it will not happen” … I trust that the right job will be offered to me at the right time.

I also know that it is completely possible for me to earn money as a full time artist — all I need to do is continue to take all of the action I can take for this to happen.

AND some of the action is to WAIT!

When I used to take the bus in NYC – I would often say, the important part about taking the bus is BEING OK WITH THE WAIT! The bus is going to come – it may be late however, there is a bus running and it will appear when it does and I will get to my destination. I am using this thought right now — I made a video today so I could release out loud – MY NEED TO KNOW!!

I know it will happen — I don’t need to know when, how, where, or what … because I know WHY it will happen! Things will happen because All of my needs are ALWAYS taken care of! and this has been true since I made the decision to let go of my apartment and leave NYC. TRUST TRUST TRUST!!

And let go of the old limiting habits of wanting to worry & stress! this does no one any good!!

Seriously — relax & enjoy!!

so today this is the plan — to relax & enjoy!!

Sharing a great DAILY OM I received today — to remind me of what’s exciting in my life!!

Translating Our Feelings
Are You Excited Or Scared?

Often times when trying something new, we feel scared when in actuality we may be excited. Reframe your thoughts.

When new challenges and opportunities show up in our lives, we may
diagnose ourselves as feeling scared when what we really feel is
excited. Often we have not been taught how to welcome the thrill of a
new opportunity, and so we opt to back off, indulging our anxiety
instead of awakening our courage. One way to inspire ourselves to
embrace the opportunities that come our way is to look more deeply into
our feelings and see that butterflies in our stomach or a rapidly
beating heart are not necessarily a sign that we are afraid. Those very
same feelings can be translated as excitement, curiosity, passion, and
even love.

There is nothing wrong with being afraid as long as we do not let it
stop us from doing the things that excite us. Most of us assume that
brave people are fearless, but the truth is that they are simply more
comfortable with fear because they face it on a regular basis. The more
we do this, the more we feel excitement in the face of challenges
rather than anxiety. The more we cultivate our ability to move forward
instead of backing off, the more we trust ourselves to be able to
handle the new opportunity, whether it’s a new job, an exciting move,
or a relationship. When we feel our fear, we can remind ourselves that
maybe we are actually just excited. We can assure ourselves that this
opportunity has come our way because we are meant to take it.

Framing things just a little differently can dramatically shift our
mental state from one of resistance to one of openness. We can practice
this new way of seeing things by saying aloud: I am really excited
about this job interview. I am really looking forward to going on a
date with this amazing person. I am excited to have the opportunity to
do something I have never done before. As we do this, we will feel our
energy shift from fear, which paralyzes, to excitement, which empowers
us to direct all that energy in the service of moving forward, growing,
and learning.

Trickydame on Tybee!

Making a decision to stay on Tybee Island is one of the most interesting decisions I’ve made in a long time!! HOWEVER …

Life is what you make it – Make it Interesting!!

And … this is how I want to live my life! WOW!

I’m learning more and more about how to
ALLOW LIFE
FEEL LIFE
LIVE LIFE
and I’m giving myself TIME! What’s the rush?!

I suppose this is why I was guided to this place — to slow down and listen to my soul. While I listen to my soul, I’m so grateful for the various characters I’m meeting and being able to sit and be with Mother Nature so easily.

I’m also learning how to take ACTION and WAIT! Things happen a little slower here on Tybee Island … and I have to TRUST that as soon as the busy season starts, I will have a job at the local cafe. I trust the process of life and all that I need will always be taken care of. SO FAR SINCE I’VE LEFT NYC this is true!! So just believe it JOANNE!!!

Also … RECOGNIZE what you are accomplishing instead of beating yourself up for what YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH!!

I am constantly inspired and in awe of all of the people who are living their PASSIONS! And I’m constantly reminding myself NOT TO COMPARE myself to them … rather ALLOW MYSELF to be INSPIRED by them…. thus inspiring my OWN PASSIONS TO GROW!

We are all exactly where we need to be! We are all being exactly who we can be! We are all exactly doing what are doing! We are all exactly sure WHY we are who we are!!

SOMETIMES we forget!! (or get distracted!!)

This is why its so important to continue to work on YOUR INTUITION – we are all sixth sensory beings!! So many people are sharing great tools on how to access this power. I’m listening and reading lots to strengthen my own Intuition!
I invite you to listen to Sonia Choquette or David Morelli. These two people are inviting us to TRUST OUR VIBES and ENWAKEN!!!

I’ve always been a big believer in AFFIRMATIONS but in this past week, I’m finding a new understanding of how important they are. And is it any coincidence that the same week I tape all over my little room at the Carbo House all of my daily affirmations from my Louise Hay daily calendar is the same week she launches her new book, “EXPERIENCE YOUR OWN GOOD“!!????

Positive affirmations are solutions that will replace whatever problem you might have. By repeating these affirmations over and over, you’ll be planting new seeds in the fertile soil of your subconscious mind, and they’ll become true for you. Louise Hay

I believe if I continue to trust & use my intuition and believe & say my affirmations — I will feel FREE to Live Fully!!

Interestingly enough — right now I DO feel free to live my life!
WOW!!

angels are with me…

It’s day four since I’ve left the life I knew so well to begin a new chapter in my life. So far it’s been rather easy so I want to express gratitude & appreciation for this! I feel its important for me to stay in touch of the positive things happening instead of allowing thoughts of past worries/fears to take away what is working out.

I can feel the ANGELS all around me offering me strength and support to stay in the present moment — stay connected with Source Energy! If I can keep this as my priority — I trust answers & opportunities will appear.

WHEW …it feels so new to think this way and I need to remember that the shift I am feeling others are so I’m not alone. The next week is going to be interesting – – I am going to do things that are so daring however… the outcome of these daring moves will only bring me new opportunities to share my art.

I am ready to host Manifesting Circles – create Mass Manifesting Mobiles in public spaces – offer Re-Energizing Sessions – sell my art!

Who/What is going to come into my life this week which will give me opportunities to make this happen?! The Not Knowing can also be exciting …. and the excitement feels a lot better than the fear so GUESS WHICH FEELING I’m CHOOSING?!!?!?!?

If I trust my intuition and ASK_BELIEVE_RECEIVE – all that I need will be provided.

So it is!

Afternoon Thought …

Right now …. as I am awakening my soul … purpleskyhundreds upon hundreds of other human beings including YOU are also awakening. Imagine what must be going on in the realms of this planet – positive energy beams must be just popping out all over!! Popping right back down into us – through us – and creating a lot of energy to be absorbed.

We must be gentle with ourselves at this time to give us time to process and receive all of this amazing new energy. As this new energy is introduced to us in our human bodies – the ego which wants to control the body will do whatever it can to keep its controlling interest in the design of our lives …. HOWEVER … it’s losing the power. We are becoming Warriors of the Spirit … more and more of us our arming ourselves with tools & allies to create a more peaceful and abundant planet for all.

So during this time where you might be wanting to cry, scream, pout, hit, give up … just pause. Take a deep breath – feel it?! Yes, you feel the positive energy beams … allow yourself to breathe it in and laugh, sing, dance …or cry scream hit pout …. but don’t GIVE UP! We’ve gotten this far … we can go farther. This is only making us stronger … let’s just be gentle with ourselves.

Relax & Enjoy … allow your magic – feel your passion – live your love.
