A Distinct Direction

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on March 13, 2012 by Amy Kay Raymond

Often times we have sort of a hazy idea of where we would like to go in life and what we’d like to do, but sometimes the haze is just so thick and dense we don’t know which way is up. With all of life’s distractions coming at us a zillion miles an hour, it’s no wonder we find ourselves off course every now and then. 

How do we get out of this rut when we find ourselves in this particular scenario? Try asking yourself a few of these power questions to get the ball rolling. Just a few minutes of contemplation will help steer you back to your dreams.

1. What do you want? Seriously. What do you REALLLLLLY want?

2. Truthfully acknowledge the direction you are headed. No judgment, simply acknowledge.

3. Close your eyes, breathe, and see it happening in your mind’s eye. Do this every day for at least 3 minutes. Feel it unfolding just the way you’d like it to. You are the co-creator here, so what do you want to create?

4. What are 1-2 things that you can do today to move towards your desires?

5. If you find yourself making excuses, write them down and then put them in a bowl and burn them to pieces. They are useless to you and don’t serve you in any way.

6. Only FOCUS ON WHAT YOU DO WANT! Don’t talk about all of the stuff you don’t want and don’t hang around others that do that either. This just creates more resistance and pity parties. 

7. Check in: Are your thoughts, words and actions still in alignment with your vision? 

8. Raise your chin, let go of everything that’s happened before this moment and go forth in Confidence. No one can take away your dreams unless you let them. 

9. Do one thing this week that you wouldn’t normally do, just for the FUN of it! It doesn’t have to have anything to do with your dream, but it should be FUN!  

10. Be light about it and go forth in your Joy! It’s about the journey, not the destination. 
 
Sending you cheers as your dreams unfold with Grace – – –

To Love is the Why

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on October 28, 2011 by Amy Kay Raymond

If you are wondering what you can do today to make a difference, think no more.

LOVE.

Why? To LOVE. That’s it.

LOVE is the sole fabulous reason why we’re here on this planet. Despite what the media spouts, or what the ego insists upon, it’s all really very simple. LOVE. It is the most powerful remedy for all that ails on this earth. It doesn’t cost a thing – except the ego, it’s pride – and it actually feeds not only the person receiving the LOVE, but the giver. It is a win-win situation when one submits to feeling good and allows the light to shine in. For then that light is reflected outward in ways that the human mind can not even comprehend or imagine. LOVE is vast, and it never stops giving.

When we choose to LOVE, separation is instantly banished. There is no more righteousness. There is no more greed or taking sides. When we LOVE, we are actually choosing to clean up our soul-full heart-print and eradicate all insinuations that the ego even exists. This is the magic pill that we’ve all been looking for. It’s not outside of ourselves. The answer does not lie in watching the news. That just feeds the ego. The answers are not going to come from electing the “best” politician. For we all have more power within us than any one person we could possibly elect. This radiant, all encompassing goodness is pulsating within us at any given time. We just have to choose it. Ego or LOVE?

Start pooling the LOVE together from within us all and that’s when little droplets of change become massive tidal waves of healing on this plane. Search for similarities in one another vs. differences. Yes! Actively search! Focus on the intended outcome, the well being of the planet and all of it’s inhabitants – and then let the collective consciousness take the pilot’s seat. You don’t have to “do” anything. Simply allow thoughts that feel good and let the power of LOVE wash over your heart daily.

Then go out into the world and spread it around.

Purposeful acts of Loving Big.

THIS is what is going to heal the world.

One heart at a time.

Namaste,

AK

Paradise is a Choice

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on April 12, 2011 by Amy Kay Raymond

Wow! This morning is so phenomenally beautiful. Just another day in Paradise…isn’t it? The birds are singing, the sun is beaming, the Heavenly scents of blooming flowers are wafting through the air and we have infinite resources at our fingertips. Oh, and people are Good. At least that’s what I’m choosing to focus on today. Cuz that just feels Good and brings even more Good stuff our way.

Hey, the fact that we woke up at all is a very telling thing. I’m thinkin’ that means that something higher than ourselves still wants us here. There’s still a Divine Appointment that we’re meant to keep. We’ve still got work to do…or actually, there’s still play time to experience.

If your moment by moment existence is not exactly Heavenly then perhaps today is the day to make a shift towards the reality that you desire. Just doing one thing differently on this gorgeous day could spin you in a whole other direction.

Used to eating a lot of sugar everyday? Choose again. No time for exercise? Choose to make some. Feeling weighed down by an old habit of negative thinking? Choose to see the positive sides of things instead. Break the cycle of the old way of doing things. One little step is all it takes. Afraid to take that class for fear of blah, blah, blah? Just freakin’ sign up already!

When we want something, that something wants you. It is put there – ON PURPOSE – by Spirit. And who the heck are we to dis Spirit? Helllllllooooooo. How our desires fulfill themselves is none of our business! We do not have to know the how. We just have to take a step towards our Joy and see what happens next. Our silent partner has more ways of bringing our Good to us that we even know.  Ahhhhh, what a relief. And yes, we CAN actually trust this. Trust is, after all, a choice.

Hey, here’s a radical thought to think today: The Universe is always conspiring for my Good.

Check in with your sweet self. How does that thought feel?

Or what about this one: I give freely and fearlessly into life and life gives back to me with fabulous INCREASE. (Yeah! Now we’re talkin’!)

Why not think something different today? Spring represents new beginnings, so now is the perfect time.

Well, that’s what I have to say this morning.

Now…I’m off to experience Paradise.

Care to join me?
