The Day You Find Out Why

When you understand your purpose in the world, you gain POWER, focus, you gain the right to say yes & to say no. You understand that what God has called you to is bigger than you. The bigger picture is WAY WAAAY bigger than you. And when you know that, you have come to the RIGHT place.

The power & resources to do it come from the Source of ALL power, your Heavenly Father. When the disciples walked with Jesus they lacked what we have. Jesus said it would be better for him to go so that the Holy Spirit would come to us. Now the actual Spirit of God lives within us & has created good works for us to do. Before time began, God predestined specific things that ONLY YOU would do! Open up your mind & DREAM BIG. No, I mean BIGGER. Ok, A LOT Bigger. GOD has bigger plans for YOU than you do! Let’s get to it. 

“And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus….For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:6,7,10

As my grandfather lay in a hospital bed last week, I went to see him because I thought it would be my last chance. I was SO thankful to be able to lift his legs to put pillows under his feet, to put vaseline on his cracked lips, & to hold a cup of cold milk for him to drink. I knew in that moment that that was my purpose in life for that day. That I was doing exactly what God wanted me to do. And I was exactly where I wanted to be. I was so happy, even though I knew I might not see him again. As we prayed over him that evening, he said, “Yes” & “Amen” to all of our prayers. It was right in that moment I had my “Why” & knew that God had this all planned out from the beginning. Our beginning & our end. It was all there in God’s sovereign plan. Every minute. 

Now let’s go change the world.

Are You an “Emotional Hoarder?”

It can be hard to let go of negative emotions. Maybe something someone said, a reaction you felt to an event, a weird vibe you got from being around someone else, or something that happened years ago. Something trigged those negative emotions & you won’t let go of them. Some people go their ENTIRE lives hoarding this stuff! This “emotional hoarding” weighs down our thoughts, relationships, businesses, productivity, creativity, & success. Phew! That’s a lot! And For SURE God has something WAY Better for You!!! 

The First Step is: Recognition. “I recognize I am being an emotional hoarder at this moment.

Second Step: Flip. “I think I’d like to release those emotions.”

Third Step: Expand. “What would it feel like to think the opposite?”

Fourth Step: Commit. “Yes that is what I am going to do.”

Fifth Step: No Action. Do not speak of it. Give the negative thoughts of your past none of your emotional, physical, or spiritual energy. Pay NO attention to the emotional hoarding you were accustomed to.

Sixth Step: Replace. “I LOVE meditating on _____” (Instead)

This emotional clearing & releasing will free up an incredible amount of energy in your mind & soul. Sometimes you may need to do this several times a day. It is necessary to simplify your thinking-simplify your emotional load. You must edit & release any thoughts that are not serving you or glorifying God. I have noticed that very productive & joyful people have mastered this releasing. If you want to fire up some major ROCKETS & travel at lighting speed to your dreams & the life you love, then start practicing this emotional release. It’s God’s will for YOU! 

Isaiah 43:18-25 “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. …I provide water in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen, the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise.”

If you are looking for help embracing a BIGGER dream, let’s get you coached! 

Now let’s go change the world.

There’s WAY More!

The Invaluable Lesson I Learned When My Hard Drive Crashed.

The day before Christmas Eve last year, my computer stopped as I was trying to load new software. I was staring at it, telling it to COME ON! But there was a different plan. It did not listen to me. The hard drive crashed.

My “whole life” as a photographer & life coach was on that hard drive. All of my art, my notes, my work. I couldn’t believe it. What happened next was pretty amazing. I CHOSE not to worry about it. It would be 10 days before I could have it checked out. I chose to enjoy every day without my computer & have a great holiday. This mind-shift was like a miracle for me. When the computer specialists got to it in January, they confirmed that everything on it was irretrievable.

I had a huge revelation at this point. I felt like God was telling me that the past didn’t matter...what I had created & saved on my computer didn’t matter because of what God ordained for me to create in the future. It was like, what’s the point of loosing a dollar if you know you are going to make millions? The art & work I had created & saved on the computer was nothing compared to what else God had in store. Then I had this “WOW! WHAT do YOU have for ME to create?!” perspective.

It was as if I had been eating crumbs off the floor but NOW I was sitting at the King’s banquet table ready to chow down! I simply let go of the past so I could accept more. Now I’ve got a new hard drive & I always think, “Ok God! Let’s fill this sucker up!” Now I look DOWN-STREAM for ways God is flowing & wants me to use my gifts. “Where attention goes, energy flows and results show,” (T.Harv Eker). Life is a display of redemption.

“When you finally let go of the past something better comes along!” 

If YOU are looking for a mind-shift, let’s get you coached! 

PS: “When things are falling apart, they’re really falling together.” 

Now let’s go change the world.

We Get What We Want

Sometimes we create the negative, the pushing away of our dreams, because the action, the response, or the people & events that would surround our dreams coming to fruition are scary. So we get what we want most, which is to avoid the anxiety. The anxious thoughts are like little gremlins trying to steal your joy & keep you off track. If we don’t act on the dream we don’t have to worry about what others will think about it, how we will handle the details, the work, or interacting with people we don’t know. This is just more of the fight to climb “upstream.” You are telling God that you are really not ready for it. So you work & think backwards (upstream). And, let’s just be honest, I see a lot of people blaming God for this.

FLIP that around!

Start SAYING YES to every wonderful detail that comes up regarding the dream. Yes I handle it with ease. Yes, MORE please. Yes, I can fly past those gremlins & laugh as I make more money, help more people, & create a beautiful life. Flying downstream.

We have to CHANGE what we REALLY Want and

say YES to that vision every day.

God has a bigger vision for your life than you do. Choose that one! 

LEAN DOWNSTREAM BABY, WOOHOOO!!!

KEEP SAYING YES. 

Now let’s go change the world.

100 Days of Blessings

Saturday, Oct 1, I began my “100 Days of Blessings.” I am actively looking for blessings, thriving, thankfulness, success, & celebrating who we are & what God has given us. I am focusing on appreciating the abundance that surrounds me. I am making notes of the blessings that are in my life. Instead of looking & fighting “upstream,” I am looking forward & excited about what is “downstream.” I began this perspective a while back, but now I am starting the 100 days experiment, ending on “The Day of Epiphany” or “Three Kings’ Day,” January 6, 2012. I’d love for you to join me! Let’s see what we can notice & just how many blessings we have!

I am forgetting what is behind & pressing on to what is ahead. I have some ideas that I’d like to see come to fruition. I have had some anxiety about how those would happen. But I am now trusting the Creator to show me what is Best. He will guide me. I trust Him that I will have the answers at the right time. The solutions & ideas will arrive at just the right moment. I dont need to have everything figured out today, because it will come when I need it. I release the PROCESS & the Outcome. I love what is coming. I am so THANKFUL. GRATEFUL. I dont have to have it all together, I just TRUST the SOURCE of ALL GOOD things.

Prov 2:7 “He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity.”

I trust the owner of that storehouse, the Father of ALL wisdom, the shielder, & the keeper of my integrity. THANK YOU GOD!

So, I am Praying, Asking, Seeking, & Acting. But first just trusting & believing. Counting the blessings that encompass me. 100 days. Comment below, shoot me an email or join me on facebook to share your experiences for “100 Days of Blessings.”

PS: In case you didn’t notice, if you feel the need to rehash the past (fighting the moment by looking upstream), find the negative, or squash somebody’s dream, call somebody else 🙂 Cause I’m BUSY!!! 🙂

PPS: If you are excited & thankful about what God has given you & where you are going, contact me! I’m your gal! We’ve got a lot of great work ahead of us!

It’s gonna be a great ride, so join me &

LEAN DOWNSTREAM BABY, WOOHOOO!!! 

Now let’s go change the world.

There is Enough

Did you know that there is ENOUGH?

Enough joy to go around. Enough resources. Enough. If we live with a mindset of lacking anything, we will believe it & that itself will expand. A mindset of “lacking” is a mindset of resisting. “What you resist persists.”

Let’s flip that & try on this mindset hat for size:

God has given us all good things. We lack nothing. We have set our mind on things above. We think on what is lovely, pure, admirable, right, & noble. We are GRATEFUL that we have been given every blessing under heaven. We are over the moon with JOY that we are seated with Christ in the heavenly realms! (Ephesians 2:6) And therefore we pray “Thy will be done on EARTH as it is in HEAVEN.”

How does THAT feel? This week if you feel like you are lacking ANYTHING, put on this hat instead. But START with GRATITUDE. Gratitude is our jumping off point. If you feel like you cannot take another step in believing what is true, just say what you are grateful for. Do it all day. What you are GRATEFUL for GROWS! Gratitude is like a compass that points your soul & mental energy in the right direction. Now begin to imagine the truly limitless joy that God has for YOU. There is ENOUGH for EVERYONE. Look to God to meet your needs. Surrender all of your desires to Him. But do not stop at surrender. ASK him for GOOD THINGS! He is the creator of all resources. Open up your soul & say Yes Lord! I will receive it!

What if TODAY we ACTUALLY BELIEVE This! “Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” John 14:13

Because REMEMBER JESUS also said, “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” Luke 11:11 & 13

Good News! There is ENOUGH! 

Now let’s go change the world.

Are You a Soldier or a Gardener?

Have you ever wondered how the soldiers fighting the great battles reacted when they found out the war was over? Did they believe it? Or did they keep fighting? How many lives were lost due to some soldiers who could not believe that the battle was over? How long did they continue to fight?

There are movies we play in our minds that are so negative that they sound like we are in a continuous battle. What if you could step in & tell your mind, Hey! That battle is over! The war ended long ago. We won! Now you can do something productive!

What are you giving your energy to that doesn’t deserve it?

Oftentimes we are so busy fighting the bad that we should stop & think, “Am I really called to be a soldier? Or a Gardener?” Figure out how to CULTIVATE the GOOD. That’s what a gardener does. Can you really have the mindset of fighting ALL the time? Of course not, that’s called “burn out.” And it’s not for you. You may have seasons of fighting, but- good news!- it is NOT Every season! “Seek the shalom of the city,” Jeremiah 29:7. How can you contribute to the good instead of giving your energy to fighting the bad?

How much mental energy have you spent on unnecessary negative thoughts? It’s just not working for you. Time to turn this ship around. My rule: “If something isn’t working for you, do the OPPOSITE.”

So here’s your new mindset: You are a Gardener.

What will you do with all that freed up mental energy & time?

You will cultivate the vision that God has put into your heart. You’ll plant more & more seeds. You’ll reap a harvest. You’ll share it with others.

So remember, When you feel the weight of negativity on your shoulders, “Think the Opposite.” Instead of resisting the weight, use the creativity God gave you to envision the BEST. Be a Gardener. 

Now let’s go change the world.
