Optimists Rule The World | MKE Year 3 Week 17

Kindness, unlike Unicorns should not exist merely in our imaginations.

As an empath, thinking of others first isn’t a difficult or challenging task for me. Because my world is always Sunshine and Rainbows, it’s not hard for me to find things to be grateful for, or ways to show my appreciation to the Universe. What I’m learning, however, as I track the evolution of my thoughts – essentially, the evolution of my actual DNA – is that being kind to myself is equally, if not more important.

Be kind, for everyone is fighting a difficult battle.

-Plato

Faith vs. Belief

I’m stuck in this back-and-forth…an endless tennis match of my thoughts, torn between heart and mind – trying to decide if Faith is exclusive to Religion, or not. I don’t believe Faith has anything to do with Religion at all. Or anything not to do with it, for that matter.

Gravity. We don’t need to ‘believe’ in it Perez, for it to play a fairly significant role in our day-to-day lives…right?!!

The difficulty however, is that belief precedes the action…deciding where to place my Faith therefore, is a critical juncture to all success; to my past, present and future successes.

So, where do I want to place my Faith?

We all have equal capacity for Faith, it’s all about what you believe, and where you choose to place that belief.

When I talk about Faith, I’m not referencing Religion…while I haven’t related to Religion in a long time (…been on the short end when ‘Christians’ hide their judgement of others behind the guise of ‘Religion’), however I do relate to God…so now, I am simply…

Spiritually Optimistic…I choose to do good and be good to people, with full Faith that they will do good things – not back – but forward.

I give, wholeheartedly, without the expectation of reciprocity.

The creator doesn’t judge people until they’re at the Pearly Gates…so what makes us think we have the right to do so?

Pearly Gates Landscape

Why do we need to judge people at all? Perhaps judgement is nothing more than a fear of the loss of power? Why can’t we all just get along?

The bottom line is nobody really knows – yet it has been proven that we project our insecurities onto other people by judging them (quietly to ourselves, or verbally to others) in order to deflect our lack of self confidence.

In order to remain on the straight and narrow, I often ask myself?

Am I seeking approval? Perhaps…

…more than that though…am I seeking to avoid disapproval…

My belief is intact. Belief in my strengths, and belief that I can overcome my weaknesses. Belief in my abilities to better the world for myself and for others. My unending, optimistic belief that kindness cures all.

Be kind. Be Gentle.

Constant thoughts of gratitude are a great form of prayer.

Directing my Valkyrie | MKE Year 3 Week 9

As I learn more about who I was born to be…I realize that the things from my childhood which I thought were too jeuvenile or silly were swept aside; those character traits (emotional and physical), which I have consciously eliminated from my daily repertoire…these are in fact the foundation of the true Me…they are the bumpers to my bowling lane! At the risk of sounding like a cheese ball…they complete me.

Things like saying “Have a HAPPY day!” rather than “Have a good day” [the boring, confirmative yet still pleasant and more grown-up version].

The Valkyrie inside me has always been there..now that it’s awake, I can barely contain the majestic-ness of it all. Realigning with the 6 year-old Me has been magical, in every sense of the word. I choose to believe in Magic. And I’m happy about it!

I’m putting the real me on display for the world … to love or not to love…

All of my wild love. All my captivating, intoxicating goodness…designed to fulfill my destiny and act as a beacon towards my life’s truest calling….baring my soul, my secrets, and my strengths to the world with pride and humility and I have gratitude and love in my heart so the Universe will bring back to me more of that which I give.

While I feel more free, I also feel more capable, impactful, and yes…even Happier!!

   

This is me, and I love me. Flaws and imperfections are my signature, not my deficit, and I’ve embraced being different – actually, I wouldn’t want it any other way!! I’m going to be the best…my best…that way I can really change things.

The Universal Test

From time to time, the Universe has been known to throw pain and suffering at me, often at the most inopportune times. Likely geared towards muting my light…to distract me from realizing my full potential…and sadly, I have been an unconscious pawn in this game far too long. By allowing this to continue, I am essentially accepting defeat and everything I’ve ever wanted had seemed just beyond my reach.

Well no more. Now I am adorned with goodness and light and more affluence and favor than many will ever know. I know I am very blessed and highly favored.

They [exactly who are ‘they’, anyways?] and why do we voluntarily give ‘them’ is much power?? Anyways…they comment that it’s always darkest before dawn…and I am proud to say that this has never dissuaded me. I promise myself I will overcome the previous addiction to remaining stuck in this realm of torment and drama.

   

Some people believe the Universe is out to get them…well, what I believe is that the Universe IS out to get you – to get you to learn a new lesson, to get you to make different decisions, to make new mistakes, to evolve.

Pain is no longer my fuel, nor is it my vice. When I’ve got a full plate and my resolve threatens to buckle under the pressure…it is at that very moment – while I contemplate certain defeat…that I will not give in, rather I will harness this energy into my greatness…because is where all the magic lies.

The fork in the road, the Fulcrum point…most would [and usually do] concede – justifying their own excuses, allowing Resistance to flail its treacherous sword; hacking apart the ridge built by the conscious minds.

A select few who have adopted the Master Key principles are able to line the trials and tribulations with an overwhelming sense of the warm and fuzzies, vigilantly ploughing through, taking baby steps and sometimes giant leaps and bounds towards overcoming obstacles and turning adversities into advantages.

Think of it like ‘levelling up’…the game platform represents the Universe, the game represents your life/future/desire…and the arsenal of weapons available to you represents your mental stronghold of positive mental thoughts and attitudes.

Will you answer the call??

When my kids were young, and in reality, quite recently as well, I’d always encourage them to ‘make new mistakes’. Instead of throwing in the towel, I took the addition of another simultaneous ‘super important, stress-enduring, time-sucking emergency and instead became laser-focused on funnelling that negative energy into the never-dying battery pack, without any trace of question or exception, powers my Resolve.

More burden…Bring It!

Another Stressor…I’ve got this.

…the needle in the Haystack…I see you and I’m coming for you. Your time is over because I’m coming for you!

I can be what I will to be. And I empower my Vigilant Guardsman as my Valkyrie.

When I feel an insurmountable amount of pressure, I remind myself of my promise to NEVER, EVER QUIT because I’ve embraced the darkness – for the pattern that holds true despite and inspire of the sands of time is this:

Without fail, it is during my darkest and most challenging times that I have come face-to-face with my Demons; and the Vigilant Watchman ensures that it there they shall lie…strewn upon piles of fear and broken dreams, for all eternity these distractions will no longer direct my course. In the darkness I conquer what no longer serves me, and as the dark recess, the new me emerges, armed with new knowledge and habit, with renewed belief and restored confidence.

According to Norse legend, the Valkyrie were beautiful women who watched over Odin’s army and transported their souls to a safe haven, where they were to await the epic, final battle. Those who were weak or unworthy did not get a second chance, they died and were forgotten.

This analogy resonated with me [as all good analogies do!] because my MKE-infused brain is, in essence, watching over my thoughts and filtering which ones are saved, and which ones are discarded and forgotten about. My brain is my Valkyrie. My Vigilant Guardsman at the Gate.

I refuse to conform. I am free of its control because I now realize – and accept – my power to control this destruction and recognize my competent ability to make different choices, which will affect more positive results.

I greet this day with love in my heart.

Today and every day I am growing stronger and more magnetic.

I am not defined as just ‘one thing’, rather I am everything, all at once. Completely in tune with the Universe. I am perfect, whole, harmonious and complete. And above all else, I am Happy!

I do everything with grace and ease because I embrace it all with love in my heart.

I’m so great-ful that you’ve joined me on this journey…please leave your comments and observations below…they fuel my fire and I’m so appreciative for your time and interaction.

Have a HAPPY day!

Beautiful Silence | MKE Year 3 Week 5

The SIT. Powerful stuff. Taking time to internalize the big questions in your life can have a profound effect. Just sit still and listen. If you don’t know why you’re here…try approaching it from a different angle – why are you here and not somewhere else? Ask different questions. Adopt a fresh perspective.

Listen to your heart. Follow your procrastination. People tell you to ignore it – society tries to beat it out of you…but what if what you do when you avoid doing what you should be doing is the key to your purpose?!!?

I’m not saying that procrastination should become your new compass, however, it is a strong indicator of your preferences…take stock of what activities you default to when you’re avoiding ‘adulting’ [read: what you should be doing as an adult] – for instance, I tend to organize things. Before I learned how to train my mind, I would organize my pantry or under the bathroom sink anytime I needed to make follow-up calls for work. So while I’m still making follow-up calls for my vocation, I’ve put into motion a way to incorporate organizing things into my career.

If you can monetize your preferences and make that your career – then you will understand what it means when people say ‘love what you do and you’ll never work another day in your life’.

Think outside the box will give you a perspective to see things differently when you do that, you can find solutions to common problems. You’ll notice what your default is as long as you remain alert and vigilant and listen attentively. Believe in yourself. Don’t overthink every aspect. Trust the process.

  • Focus on yourself and your truth – following your instinct will guide you back inside.
  • Keep a positive mental state at all times – as much as possible. I tell my kids’ to ‘think happy thoughts’.
  • Personal development. Living on purpose didn’t happen because of what I learned, it’s who I became. Invest in yourself.
  • Turn the radio off – instead, listen to audios in the car…Marianne Williamson…A return to love is one I highly recommend.
  • Follow the leader…emulate those who’ve had success that you want to replicate.

I am so grateful for the life I am living by growing into my best self.

My commitment to the SIT led me to realize the following:

  • My vibration determines my mindset and my mindset determines my vibration.
  • Before entering my office to write real estate contracts, attend meetings or meet a new prospect, I listen to the song Hallelujah, Christmas edition by the Pentatonix.
  • Wearing clothes that I feel comfortable in – I’ve got a power dress…I wear it for every contract. Simple. Black. Professional.
  • An app called Synctuition has helped me block the noise so I could find my inner voice.

Thanks for following my journey?

Love,

Jen
