Tell A Different Story for A Different Result

Standard

A friend of mine was upset today because she felt that every time things start to go her way something happens that leaves her feeling helpless, lonely, dejected and abused. I’ve suggested that she work on her boundaries but today something she said really opened me to understand what she really needed on a deeper level. She needed to hear this:

“Tell a different story. Get excited about all of the things that will go right in your future.”

The Law of Attraction will bring you what you focus on.

Are you focusing on all the ways that people have flaked out on you or left you hanging when you needed them the most? Well my love, that is exactly what you will continue to get. How about you try to focus on the amazing new friends that you want in your life. Really get creative. Imagine how fun it will be to connect on many levels. Imagine how open and willing they will be to helping you when you’re down on your luck. Picture them keeping every appointment with you. How are you feeling after that little exercise?

Let’s try work. Are you always focused on the ways that your job leaves you feeling drained, used, abused, lifeless, and angry? Are you constantly complaining about your boss or your co-workers? You’re going to continue to get what you focus on. I can guarantee you that you will continue to feel those same feelings day in and day out if you keep that attitude up. Try this instead:

“My co-workers may be acting out from their ego and not their true loving self. And besides, how they act is their own decision. From now on I’m not going to take it personally. I see myself moving through my work day with ease. Now that I’m not internalizing everyone else’s problems I can interact with them from a true place of freedom. We’re all human anyway. I happen to actually love John’s smile and Sandra is very smart. My team is comprised of really great people. Maybe they’re feeling as tired or hurt or angry as I am.  And maybe this isn’t the job I’m meant to have, but it doesn’t have to be forever. I can start making the changes I need to for myself in order to get out.”

Say what you need to say to put a smile on your face as you’re thinking about it. That’s all you need to know to start manifesting the new path that you wish you were on. And while you’re at, stop focusing on the fact that you’re NOT on the path of your dreams. Focus on how cool it will feel when you realize that you are right where you need to be.

Today’s Meditaiton: “Breathing in I am willing and open to creating a life of joy for myself. Breathing out I release my old story. Breathing in I am happy and positive, breathing out I release negativity.”

Do this for as long as feels comfortable to you. All you need is two minutes to shift your point of attraction and if you do this meditation daily change will manifest itself for you in amazing ways. Open to the love and joy you seek.

With Love,

Kimberly

How A Stranger Helped Me Love Myself

Standard

I believe that  deep within every human being is an essence of pure, perfect, love. We have many names for this: Soul, Holy Spirit, Source Energy, God, Inner Guide. Whatever you want to call it, this ball of radiant love is within us at all times, even in our lowest moments, in our most desperate moments, in our darkest hours. There is love present and available at all times. Take a moment to really let that sink in. You have all of the love that you could ever need and want nestled within your heart at this very moment. This is a life changing realization my loves.

When I began my journey to reconnect with the love within, I struggled. I had a hard time believing that the little light of mine was even still lit. I was so disconnected that I saw myself as empty inside, extinguished. My spiritual support team of friends, mentors, family, and an amazing cognitive-behavioral therapist would all tell me that I “had it”. And I couldn’t see it, I couldn’t feel it. I didn’t believe them and there were many times when I called them on their bull-shit. 

But then, a shift began to happen. My point of attraction pivoted and love started to manifest itself in some incredible ways. . You see, I was so focused on seeking love within myself and so focused on seeing the good in my own heart that, overtime, love and goodness just sort of happened. I got the apartment I so desperately wanted, I found ways to connect with my family which opened me to compassion, I started to ask the toxic people in my life to kindly exit.  It was like moving into a backbend. My heart opened and love poured in and even out. My aha moment came when I was chatting with a stranger on the subway and she told me that I was a beautiful girl, inside and out. Hold the phone!  Here was a person who I made a genuine connection with, I was vulnerable and I dared greatly and she saw the light within. And in that instant I felt pretty alive and lit up on the inside. My soul had reawakened. 

Since I reignited the flame within myself I’ve found it very easy to fall in love with people. I fell in love with the little girl who, to spite her mother, licked her hands after touching a pole on the subway. I fell in love with the homeless man who just wanted a Big Mac, I fell in love with the man playing piano in Grand Central. I could go on and on. Everyday I seek out and find more people to love.

My point is this: If you want to see life and people through the eyes of God, see yourself that way first. Everything is nurtured and can grow with love. You can change your life, you can ignite change in others, you can even help someone to recognize their light and inspire them to serve others. Love can put into motion a string of events that can set you up for greatness. Its powerful stuff.

I encourage you to try this little exercise:  Everyday for the next week take 5 minutes out of your day to think about all of the love you presently have in your life. Really allow yourself to get swept up in the good, warm feelings. Think about your love for your family, your neighborhood, your food, your brain. I promise that this very simple exercise will change your perception and shift your point of attraction. Amazing things will begin to happen.

My Awakening

Standard

I’ve had many mini spiritual awakenings these past few years but none have been as profound as my most recent experience.

I attended a Bodhi meditation class one evening in September and I didn’t really like it at first. I found it difficult to focus and clear my mind, I found the various meditations to be very weird but something amazing happened within me.

After that first class I sat around waiting to meet up with a friend in the city, and suddenly I began to have flashbacks of my childhood. Memories of good, happy moments flashed before me and it was a pleasant surprise. Up until that evening all of my flashbacks of my childhood were full of sorrow, hurt, anguish and despair. I tried to run from them as best as I could. Remembering pleasant and happy times was novel and a little scary but I went with it.

Then I heard a voice from deep within my gut. Some call it intuition others Holy Spirit or Inner Guide. I call my inner knowing my Holy Essence. It spoke to me, very clearly and said,” You are meant to serve others”. This moved me on a very deep level. Since moving to New York City I’ve struggled to figure out what path my life is meant to take. I did a lot of research into career paths and vocations. I went from wanting to be an esthetician, then a model, then a yoga instructor, then a health coach, then a publicist. Finally I settled on Social Media Marketing. But, sometime was not right with this. Every road I tried to take that led to this career was closed for me. So, shortly before I went to my first energy healing Bodhi meditation class I began to pray. I was reading Spirit Junkie by Gabrielle Bernstein and her earnest desire for healing was very inspiring and I wanted the joy that she has. I started to pray for direction and for my place in this world to be revealed to me. I prayed every single morning and evening for about 2 weeks before that class.

“You are meant to serve others.”

I heard the Divine and I did something a little crazy. I took Gabby’s advice from one of her videos on YouTube and I opened myself to this revelation and claimed it. I said to my Holy Essence, “Yes.” And I wrote down on a piece of scrap paper that I claimed my path as a healer and servant. As soon as I finished writing it, I was overcome with emotion and I just sat and cried. I cried for all of the other little girls out there who are living in fear and being abused in one way or another. I cried for myself. I cried for the people who I would meet and help to heal. I cried mostly because I was relieved. That night, I was freed from my fear and my striving. My chasing after a life I was not meant to live. I allowed myself to accept my truth.

And now I’m here. I’m answering my calling: to serve and to heal.

With Love.
