Thou Shall Not Play Small

It happened! You know…that instant when something Dawn’s on you    and you slap your palm to your forehead and shout Doh! like Homer Simpson. Mutual of Omaha calls it an “aha” moment. I call it a light bulb moment. Sometimes mine come with a little pang of embarrassment, like this one, because I consider myself to be self-aware. Oh well…I hope to never stop learning and will gladly pay the price of a little pride for a piece of wisdom that can make my life better. Come to think of it, nearly all of these blogs have come from…

Did you see her hair?!

Truth be told, there was a time in my past if I was looking at your hair and thinking it looked great that I was probably thinking mine looked crappy. Or, if I was thinking you were having a bad hair day, I was likely thinking that my ‘do looked awesome. Yes, I was a busy body busy judging…me. You see, what appears to be my judgment of you is actually my judgment of me. Here’s how that works. All thought is thought about ourselves (yes it is!). Everything we think and do is because we think it will make us feel…

No guts, no glory!

The words below were written by Sarah Varcas and are part of her November astrology post called Inside Out Change. Sarah calls herself an Intuitive Astrologer. I think she should change that to Wise Intuitive Astrologer.  Click here to read the entire post for November 2014 on her website: http://astro-awakenings.co.uk/monthly-astro-energy-reports. Against a backdrop of centuries during which the mind has been deified and the spirit increasingly ignored, if we can’t come up with an answer to a problem we can end up feeling hopeless, ineffective, a failure. The ability to apply logic to life and make it better as a…

Miracle #1

This is a picture of one of my treasures. I’m no longer certain of where it came from or when, but as you can see I’ve possessed it for years. I have to admit that when I read these words in the beginning I didn’t like them. Why? Because I didn’t want to let go…it was too frickin’ scary! Letting go meant giving up control and OMG!, that felt like letting a wolf in the house or jumping out of an airplane without a parachute! I would read the words because I had asked for help and this is one of the forms it…

STOP IT!!

I’ve never been sorry for practicing restraint when it comes to eating, drinking and opening my mouth. I don’t do regret very well and that’s what I feel if I overindulge in any of these. In my experience, a full stomach or hangover goes away a lot quicker than the consequences of spewing every word my ego thinks I should. I’ve said it before; if I’m explaining or complaining it’s my ego doing the talking! I learned this phrase from experts at overcoming overindulgence. I wasn’t doing the drinking but I was certainly doing the obsessing about someone who had…

Freeness (it’s the noun variation)

I’m seeing and hearing the word free all over in the media lately. I’ve been using it too, as in ‘Free lifetime membership to MUT Like Me until 10/1/2014’. What I really want to talk about though refers to mental freeness. Unafraid, unambiguous, undisturbed deliberation. “Free” was the answer I gave when my sister asked me a few days ago for one word I use for inspiration. “Freedom from fear and doubt” is on my New Moon wish list this week. (Launching a website is scary!) “Free” is the answer I gave when my other sister asked me what I wanted…
