There is no longer time to waste with such frivolities for our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health will be what will pay the price if we so choose. The body can only follow the direction of the heart and mind and when there is discourse, disease ensues. All, and I do mean all the problems we experience have at their root an emotion cause, every time without exception. The human apparatus is designed to thrive and has miraculous mechanisms in place for maintaining health and harmony but it can only do so if allowed to live in a loving, peaceful and compassionate environment. If the mind is consumed with creating an atmosphere of anger, fear, anxiety and despair the body has no choice but to reflect this. Now more than ever before in history is this becoming evident due to the increase in energetic fields both within us and around us. The speed at which our mental atmosphere translates into physical disease is exponential and this is not going to do anything but gain momentum from here.
We have always had the freedom to choose our thoughts and therefore create healthy, vibrant bodies but many of us have become lost in our programming and have forgotten just how powerful we actually are. It is my quest to help us as many people as possible remember the truth of whom they are and, that they have and always will have, free-will to choose. Taking full and complete responsibility for our thoughts, our health, our actions and our deeds is the path to true happiness, harmony and incredible well-being on all levels. It can seem a little scary at first but once it becomes clear that with responsibility comes empowerment, than the taste of freedom that that brings will inspire and carry us through. We were never meant to be autotons, “Ike Mike look alike,” marching, marching and following, following. We are all unique, brilliant, genius creators who in our own right are here to create our own personal Universes exactly as we choose. That means as each of us remembers that we are of one global family, all made from the same ‘God stuff’ and treats themselves and all others with the love and respect we all deserve…ahhhhh life is and will continue to be exquisite, only on a grander and grander scale.
Your body is your temple and should you wish to enjoy a wonderful healthy body, living a long life full of joy and contribution, well, it’s up to you. Focus your attention on those things that uplift you, that serve others, that bring your heart joy. Decide today to stop feeding the fire of fear by turning off the news and by reading happy stories instead of newspapers full of gloom and doom. Be the conscious chooser and deliberate creator you came forth to be and watch your life bloom in beautiful and extraordinary ways. Give it your best effort for 30 days and prove it to yourself that way you can be a living example of how it feels to be a joyous, healthy, vibrant person. By simply living your life this way you will model happiness to your family and friends who may ask you what you did to have such a life. When we are all actively doing this we will see our entire world transformed…heaven on Erath will finally be our Reality. Happy mind, body and spirit well-being to all…love and joy truly abound.

For several generations humans have been moving further and further away from the truth of their being. This was perfect in that we needed to experience the pain of separation in order to revel in our return to wholeness. Now, with the global shift in full swing, learning to pay attention to our feelings is the fastest way back to our connection to Source. When we can notice that we are feeling any type of negative emotion it is clear guidance that we entertaining thoughts that are in opposition to our Higher Self. The work is to soften those thoughts that pull us out of alignment, to broaden our perspective and do our best to see the situation through the eyes of Source. It is ever so helpful to return over and over again to the truth. Everything that occurs in our lives is ALWAYS for our highest and best without exception…this is the meaning of trust.
It is important to be gentle and patient with ourselves as we navigate a new and healthier path. We will find ourselves slipping back into the old familiar programming and so to gently say, “Oops, there I go again, that is not where I choose to focus my attention any longer,” is a kind and effective technique. Then, let it go and reach for thoughts that feel somewhat better. This can seem tedious in the beginning but in a very short amount of time you will be spending much less time there and much more time unified with Source.
Spend as much time as possible in gratitude, aware of how much good there truly is in the world, in your life and that is available us. Make lists either physically and mentally of all the many blessings you already have, regardless of how large or small. Appreciation and love are two of the fastest avenues into alignment and we are always capable of shifting our perspective if we so choose to do so. Free will and the power of choice are the greatest gifts we were given but we must remain conscious, focused and open in order to enjoy the gifts of peace, harmony and happiness that are our birth right. Living an awakened, focused life is nothing short of miraculous and will thrill you in ways that you could never imagine however, we are the ones who have complete control and taking responsibility for our thoughts, choices and focus creates the path to bliss. As Deepak Chopra teaches, we are pure awareness, pure consciousness and pure bliss when we choose to release ourselves from limiting beliefs and live our lives striving for alignment. May these words sooth you, assist you and bring you closer to your highest self.
Love and joy abound.

I wake up every day and thank God for all the blessings in my life, for another day to be alive and to love and play on this magnificent earth. Are there things I still want? Of course, but I refuse to postpone my joy until they arrive. Life is meant to be LIVED not existed through. Yes, we all get overwhelmed at times, too busy to stop and smell the roses but, let us make it a point to stop often enough, to catch ourselves before it goes on too long. Otherwise, we may wake up one sad day and realize that much of life has pasted us by and we still haven’t had any fun yet…a very sad day in deed.
I am on a quest to laugh more and worry less, to appreciate more and criticize less, to compliment more and belittle less, to look for reasons to smile and turn my attention away from those things that feel bad, to give more and expect to receive less and to love every chance I get even those people who are hard to love. If I spend my days doing these things by bed time my heart is full of joy and gratitude and I can say, “This has been a very good day.” As days such as these add up, life is genuinely sweet, satisfying and truly full.
The only reason anybody ever yearns for anything is because they believe that in the having of it, they will feel good, be happy and/or fulfilled. The truth is that feeling good/happy/fulfilled is an inside job and one that can only be achieved through choosing to be so. Yes, happiness is a choice, a decision and is solely based in one’s perception. Therefore, anyone can be happy anytime anywhere if they make their minds to be.
That’s right, happiness has virtually nothing to do with finances, possessions, power, prestige, intellect or beauty. It is, on the other hand, a state of being we were all born with, a divine and innate awareness. As we grow into adults many of us lose this awareness, we become blinded by the pursuit of happiness mistaken as, an endless endeavor to gather and work for more and more ‘stuff.’ I have known far too many miserable wealthy people to know that money does not buy happiness. Please don’t misunderstand me however, there is absolutely nothing wrong with money and all that it affords but joy, peace and love are far more precious, cost nothing and can only come from within.
So, today IS the first day of the rest of your life and the question is, “Are you going to be happy now or keep putting it off?” I choose to be happy right here and now and I do so through recognizing how blessed I am, to look for ways to give and to remember life is meant to be enjoyed not someday but now. Be gentle with yourself and others and give thanks for all that is already yours…surely there will be even more to appreciate tomorrow. Happy mind, body and spirit fitness to all.

I believe one of the greatest challenges of my life has been this, the quest for consistent, dependable joy and I know I am not alone. Recently I made a discovery about myself that may seem rather unimportant but it is making all the difference in the world for me and just may for you as well. I realized I have control over my perspective and the way I choose to view my world, people, and my circumstances which, IS A VERY BIG DEAL!!! Another cliche that comes to mind is, “Attitude is everything” and yes, it really is EVERYTHING. The real bottom line here is that we are, every single minute of every single day, at choice to think positively/optimistically or negatively/pessimistically. Much, if not the majority of our thinking is habitual/unconscious so, ask yourself, “What habit am I in?” If you feel happy, excited and eager most every day when you wake up and as you move through your day, well, consider yourself an optimist and connected to your Creator. H.P. (Higher Power) is ALWAYS content…”It is good and very good!” Creator knows that everything has purpose and knows everything always works out for the highest and best…always!!! On the other hand, if you wake up wishing you could just stay in bed and pull the covers over your head, I’m afraid you are in the habit of pessimism and you perceive yourself as disconnected from Source, a victim. Becoming aware of how you ‘feel’ the majority of the time is step #1 toward making a change and you are the only one who has the power to improve your outlook. It really is an inside job and sure, you will feel momentary elation upon receiving something ‘out there’ but soon it will fade away and you will return to the carrot chase once again. And why do you? Because somewhere deep within you, you know you are supposed to be happy, you do. It keeps coming up and pushing you to somehow find your way. The bad news is there is nothing ‘out there’ that will permanently make you happy once and for all. The good news is you can choose to be happy where you are right now. Whenever you decide, really make up your mind, that feeling good is more important than absolutely anything else THAN you are on your way. It’s more important than stuff, than being right, than prestige, power and glory. And the craziest part of all is that often all those things will come once you have given up the fight.
You were born innately worthy, connected to the most ingenious, powerful, abundant and benevolent Creator possible which you have excess to any time. So, the ‘real’ revelation is that within each of us is a direct line to everything we have falsely believed needs to come from outside of us and in fact, it can’t. Happiness comes when we choose to believe in a Power greater then ourselves and we allow IT to flow through us, as it does all of its creation, co-creating joyous living. Yes, choosing to see the glass half full is huge but so is KNOWING you are loved, guided and supported with every step you take. Start today to choose to have faith and at first it may be, ‘fake it till you make it’ and that’s perfectly fine. Start by admiring the sunrise, the immense beauty that spring is providing all around you and ask yourself, “How can I not believe that I am supported when all of nature is held season to season…magnificently?” Of course the Creator of all life treasures Its creation and is available to assist it along its way, when ‘allowed’ to do so. We get in our own way by forgetting and choosing to think ‘little me’ has to do, find and make everything happen for myself. Big mistake. When we trust in the Power that create Universes, now we are turbo charged and inspiration comes, the next right step reveals itself and the phone rings at just the right moment and on and on.
The time is now to be happy and when we decide that nothing is more important than the way we feel we are guided toward our dreams. The moment you start to feel badly stop, re-evaluate what you have been focused on because you are being shown that you are heading in a direction Creator would not go. You are either choosing negative thinking or negative action. Stop, breathe and make a different choice. Remember your happiness is depending on you making better choices and changing negative patterns into positive ones. Besides, what is better than feeling good most of the time and YOU are definitely worth the effort. Blessings all around you and may you find your happiness within.
Happy mind, body and spirit fitness to all.
