A year of believing or the next 361 days

Alrighty folks! Here’s the post. The items stated below will manifest this year; the “how” will be covered in the next post.

This evening we are at 361 days.

I am so excited! My friend Victoria is joining me on this adventure, she is someone who has created quite a wonderful existence for herself.

Two reasons I am doing this now:

The first one: I truly believe without a doubt that these things will happen; I am not in control of the timing, though I am very confident that little seedlings will sprout at the very least in the direction of confirmation and materialization.

The second reason is there are a few items on my list that I used to deem impossible for me to actually attain in this lifetime. I want to share that I can do it, and thus, so can every soul walking this planet. Part of my mantra: there is absolutely no reason to settle for anything less in any way. Life is short, go for the gusto!

Victoria has a similar intention for her it is“Believing In Myself & Making The Mind’s Impossible, Be The Body & Soul’s POSSIBLE!” Manifesting life to the next level, upward!

What both Victoria and I share is that believing is truly a deep sense of knowing and creation happening with easeNo forcing, shoving or jamming pieces of a jigsaw puzzle together. It is the time. As we go about our daily business, we know all may be easily accomplished by participating and taking action in the direction of our goals. It’s connnttttagggioouss!

And to think, I spent SO many years complicating my life, and just as many years simplifying it. “Ease” is a word I remind myself of often, to be in the flow and live from a deep sense of awareness and well being; yup, I’m eas-e (haha!).

I’m aware and respect each individual has a different belief system in terms of how “things come to be”; whether it is through believing, knowing, having faith, prayers, setting intentions or whatever is applicable to each person.

Victoria and I do know what we believe for ourselves isn’t based on wishful thinking, “need”, filling holes, or any other “have to or my life is over philosophy”. We’re both quite happy with our lives right now and if it were to remain as it is in this moment, we’d be okay.

Victoria is the owner of Que Linda Boutique and Que Linda Tu in La Crescenta, CA. She is partners with her Mom who owns Body N’ Soul Studio. Que Linda in English means: “How Beautiful”.  Below, I am providing a succinct description of each item, to be elaborated on in future posts. Here is Victoria’s list:

WEALTH:

a) Monetarily -each of my 4 bank accounts with a balance of $75k+, next year $100k+,  following year 150K+ each.

b) Happiness-wealthy in my daily happiness. My heart & face to have the same smile!

c) Love-abundance of self love, abundance of authentic love from family, friends  & clients/public.

d) Health-my health with enough clean wealthy body, functioning & continued good  maintenance.

e) Branding-Que Linda being abundant in its public recognition. A destination place, a sought out brand & state of being… being abundant & wealthy with good, positive & authentic customers/clients who are willing to do good, positive & spiritual WORK.

f) Soul-Workers-abundant with Soul Workers who set the tone in following & exemplifying what Que Linda is…as a way of Life.

What I believe for me in the next 361 days is everything below comes from love, joy and prosperity:

a) I will be presented with a sound opportunity to publish a book by a recognized publisher.

b) Continuing to grow the love of myself and my life; meeting new people and having new grand, enlightening experiences through all kinds of effortless and joyful travel, near and far.

c) I will be blissfully married to my best friend. (I started to write engaged, it didn’t feel right—this felt right and has been feeling right for quite awhile. And trust me, I couldn’t say this for years without gasping for air or running)

d) My coaching practice will continue to flourish and double in size, only bringing people who I can genuinely help.

e) My other lovely professional joy is at an entertainment company; our first product launches this year, it will be VERY successful beyond all expectations, for everyone employed there and leading to more success with our future products.

f) I believe I will sustain my reputation as authentically “me” in reflecting who I am through any means of personal and public awareness.

Whew…that was AWESOME!! I am excited to have these in the open. I am usually a very private person, so this is a step out of the “comfort” zone and into the unknown!!! Through the rapids, the calm and all that life is to experiences that will be unforgettable, dynamic and life-affirming!! Hope you enjoy the ride!!

Journals-the fun!

Early this morning, I was thinking, which is hard to do when it is “early”. As I was going up and down on the elliptical at the gym about journals. At the same time, I was also reading a book and staring at the ceiling in my “own private Idaho”. I go to the gym at the crack of dawn, so that I am not fully awake to realize that I am actually working out…I really do look forward to this time everyday. It allows me to slowly wake up to life without feeling like I am in a hurry each day. And even better, because I am a self-professed book lover, I use the time to read away!
 

Back to journals though, there are so many reasons to own a journal or three, in fact I think I have “five” separate journals. They all participate in my life in a different way….and to be honest, I don’t write in them everyday. I’d like to do so daily, but sometimes I am just not in the mood. I would rather do what I am in the mood to do, instead of making journal writing a chore. And therefore, some of the journals sit for days, weeks or even months. Sometimes I end up writing on sticky notes or I’ll take a notepad to write one of several things that is on my mind or in my heart. And if no paper is available, I’ll make a note on my phone to be later transferred into one of my journals.

I advise my clients to utilize journals too. Not as a task, but for a variety of reasons. First off, a journal isn’t just a journal. Sure, you can keep a daily record of events in your life from losing a pound to the weather and how it affected your daily run. The reason I have 5 different journals is to capture different elements to my life in a focused manner. Instead of having a mish-mosh of thoughts, feelings, desires and inspiration–I let having separate journals serve the purpose of organization and intention. A journal doesn’t have to be a traditional journal either. One of mine is not a traditional “JOURNAL”; its a sketchbook, which acts as a journal too, whether I am pasting pictures of things I want in my life on its pages or drawing how I feel–my sketchbook is something I cherish.

Another one of my journals (which I ask my clients to also keep) is a manifestation journal. Yup, I write all the things I want to manifest inside of this little book. Big or small things, I feel it has a magical quality, because I believe the words I am writing as the ink flows from my pen to paper. At the beginning of the book, I have my own little statement about its contents. Some people may choose to call it a prayer journal, where they have written their prayers into for them to be answered. Either way–its definitely a high recommendation on my list, because it is a happy little book.

My abundance journal is combined with my gratitude (appreciation) journal. I like to look at what I am fortunate to have in my life and how abundantly I am provided for in terms of appreciation. It gives me a sense of gratitude that I am here and alive, so why not enjoy what I got right now?! Of course, there is always the desire for things I do not have, but I believe they will come in their own time.

My journal of favorite quotes and things I want to remember that I have heard or seen is another goodie! Whenever I see something that catches my eye, read something inspiring or hear something beautiful, I scratch it down in this journal. I don’t know about you, but me….I forget more than I remember if I am left to my own grey matter for retention. Haha!

And lastly, I have the journal that I write in when I am struggling with something. I know that if I cannot speak about it with someone, the next best thing is to write about it. Seems that it gives me a whole new perspective or at the very least, I feel lighter after writing in it–its almost automatic for me as I write, pages get filled up in mere minutes. And then I may keep them for awhile or go in and gently tear them out of the journal. It’s a way to vent at times and for me, I don’t need to revisit those words on the pages. If they are still inside me then they will come up again. I used to hold on to journals for years—then I realized it felt like such a heavy weight, I started tossing them. I had held onto them with the thought, I would want to read them over again to see how far I have come in my own personal growth or to possibly get a better understanding of myself. Instead, like I said, they were more of a heavy weight; a tool I used at a certain time in my life to put all the ugliness I felt inside onto the outside. It is cathartic to write it, but it is even better to let go of it!

There are many more reasons to start a journal. I used to keep journals for all three of my kids when they were growing up–so we could remember the events in their young lives. I have friends who like to keep dream journals, tracking their dreams, looking for symbols and meaning. I have also had a synchronicity journal, one in which I recorded all happenings in m life of synchronicity. For me, having so many journals is great, each has its own home inside of me. I’d love to hear feedback on how you utilize a journal or what a difference a journal has made in your life.
