Monday, March 22, 2010 - Today's Words of Inspiration and Great Giveaways!

Is it a Dream, a Wish or a Goal?

With Spring being a notorious season of renewal and re-birth, it is second only to New Year's Eve for Goal Setting.

With Spring also falling around the time of my birthday, it's doubly a time of setting goals for myself. Sorting through my dreams, wishes and goals to identify what I want to make happen for myself before my next birthday is not the easiest task.

This is something I undertake very carefully and I urge you to do the same. Try to identify between your wishes, (a sort of free-for-all of things you want),  your dreams (the outcome or destination of a wish fulfilled) and your goals (focused and specific targets that if done right, will help manifest your dreams into reality).

I'm working on a complete overhaul in many areas of my life, and I'm starting by setting goals to free myself of negative patterns and thoughts. An action plan to take me from wishes and dreams to a much happier reality, and in turn a much happier me.

What are your goals for Spring? What are you hoping to achieve before the season of re-birth and renewal comes to an end?

Use 'Today's Words of Inspiration' as a breathing meditation to still your mind, quiet your thoughts and bring in positive energy. As you inhale bring in only positive energy by saying in your mind, I breathe in positive energy (or you can say creative energy if that is what you wish to create more of) and as you exhale, Affirm out loud today 'I set meaningful Goals!'

Spend some time each day enjoying focused breathing AND soul guided meditative visualization, in doing so, you can bring about amazing, profound and powerful changes in your life.

Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by universal forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul. Do this at least twice today and see how by taking a moment away from the hectic pace and breathing in positive energy and affirming what you wish to create, your thinking will become different.

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.

NOTE 2: Twitter followers: please remember you must also follow Ascending Butterfly using Google friends connect on the upper right hand side of the page for your entries to be processed. And remember if your profile does not have an email and you don't leave your email in your entry, we will not accept your entry. Make sure your entry or your profile have your email address!

Just a helpful Reminder: How to Follow Using Google Friends Connect:

Please look to the upper right hand side, where the follower pictures are. (Note the number of followers before you start this process)

1) press the follow button - the google pop up wizard will open, this is not an ad and your pop up blocker will not block it

2) tick the option that reads 'follow this blog publicly' once that button is selected, hit follow again - it should now read 'you are now following'

3) if the follower count went up you know you did it succesfully, if your profile has a picture, that picture will be the first one on the left side. If your profile doesn't have one, it should still be searchable on the members list. (Remember, following a blog, does NOT subscribe you to receive emails, you have to subscribe separately to do that, you will not receive emails for following)

Are you getting the dreaded 'Your Entry Can't Be Processed' message when leaving an entry or comment? Before hitting enter, highlight your comment and COPY it. If you get that message after hitting enter and your comment is still there, just ignore the message and hit enter again, then you will get a screen with a captcha code, enter the captcha code, then submit and VOILA. If after you hit the submit button the first time, you get the dreaded message and the comment 'disappeared' no worries, that's why I asked you to copy it in the first step. Paste it back in and submit again. This has worked for me when comment boxes have glitched on me, and I hope it helps you too!

  1. Setting definite goal's can be tricky to a achieve. We sometimes have to fight through all our mental and spritual mess,but the end results are worth the fight! At the end of the battle you not only achieve your goal but you find that you've always been strongh and now you can tap into that strangth!! Good luck and god's speed to you and all your butterflies in there quest!!!!(remember one little step at time.)

  2. The thing is that I set goals that include other people and their interactions with me, so I need to learn how to attain these goals without them but still change my dealings with them as well. Someone once told me that I cant change anyone but myself and that if I change the way I deal with others or how I view them that I will change my relations with them.

  3. Hi Tracy! That is such a good idea. I'm going to think about my goals as well. I want to breathe in the fresh spring air and feel renewed. :)
