Monday, July 20, 2009 - Today's Words of Inspiration and a butterfly giveaway!

Happy Monday!

I hope everyone had a great weekend, and got a chance to spend some time outdoors! It was an exciting weekend to say the least! I'm not going to re-post it all, but I will say as a reminder, please remember to wear BOTH sunblock and bug repellant when spending time outdoors this summer!

We've spent tons of time so far on the personal, so I thought for today we'd switch gears and make today's inspirational meditation about work. Whether you have a job you love, a job you hate or would be happy with either one of the above considering the economy, goal setting is very important! The question from your youth will now be asked of you again - 'So, what do YOU want to be when you grow up?'

Think about it.

No, really think about it. And no quick replies please. No smarty pants answers like 'rich'. What truly makes you feel fulfilled? ahem guys, professionally!

Is there still some dream from childhood floating around your head? Why aren't you doing THAT???? You should be. And take it from me, I was told by many a school guidance counselor that writing was NOT a 'real' career. Yet here I am, and here YOU are.

Are you at a crossroads, personally or professionally? If you are, your heart, soul, spirit (you give it the label) wants not more per se, but something DIFFERENT from where you are now. Spend some time today exploring these two questions. If you keep a journal, write these two questions down and take the time to answer them at some time today when you won't be disturbed. Maybe during your lunch break? Maybe before bed? 1) What do I want to be when 'I Grow Up'? (2) What would I do if money weren't a factor? (play in a rock band, train to be an astronaut?) Don't censor yourself. Write everything that comes into your mind as you ask yourself these questions.

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, say creative if you are experiencing writers block) and as you exhale, Affirm out loud today 'I am free to become who I REALLY want to be'

Let these words put you in a mindset of freedom, joy and relaxation. 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!
