Suffering or Freedom?

Affirmations:
I choose to free myself by taking responsibility.
I no longer need to complain when I am willing to change.
I free myself to see myself and make beneficial choices.
I change my mind easily and choose for win-win solutions.


Suffering or Freedom?

Are you staying too long?
Are you waiting for someone else to change?
Are you wishing for a miracle?
Are you attached to being right
?

Some believe they have no choice.
Some simply are too depressed to go.
Some are waiting on another to do the work.
Some are simply to stuck to see a way out.

If you believe that suffering is a part of life, you may feel comfortable.
If you are afraid of losing everything you value, you may value the choice to stay.
If you are dependent on the person or the house or job, you may be afraid to let go.
If you just want to complain, criticize and be long-suffering, you may enjoy where you are.

There is no one to blame.
There is no reason to complain.
There is nothing to do, accept.
Get up and leave.

Animals know they are free.
People believe they are trapped.
Animals choose what is good for them.
People choose to stay in familiar stuckness.

Frogs put into a hot pot of water will jump out.
People may make it up to be their karma or destiny.
Frogs put into a cold pot when gradually turned up, will cook to death.
Humans may make it up to be good, until its too late.

When we know we are free, we must take responsibility.
Our responsibility can be to stay to protect and provide for others.
When we know we are free, we can be afraid of taking care of ourselves and making a change.
Taking care of ourselves may be to leave or to stay and stop complaining.

Being grateful can be a simple choice to appreciate what we have and where we are.
Being grateful can be tolerant of behaviors and personalities unlike our own.
Being grateful can be to recognize we have made our own choice and choose to make the best of it.
Being grateful can be to forgive the mistake we have made and to forgive others’ mistakes as well.

Is it time to change your mind or change your choices?
Is it yours to take full responsibility for learning the hard way?
It is your choice to suffer or be free.
It is your choice to take full responsibility.

Loving you,
Betty Lue

Create Your Life!

Affirmations:
I appreciate and care for my creations with love.
I acknowledge my mistakes, forgive and choose again.
I see what is highest and best for me and my well-being.
I honor what I create with my thoughts, words and relationships.


Create Your Life!

We create our life experiences.
We can allow other’s opinions to guide our creations.
We can let fear, defensiveness and self protection create.
We can destroy our lives with fear based jealousy, addiction, apathy or hatred.

Each one makes life choices daily.
To stay or leave?
To eat more or less?
To take good care or stop caring?
To be in charge or victimized.
To be honest or cover up?
To forgive or hold resentment?
To be helpful or hurtful?
To inspire or discourage?
To learn or ignore?

Life is filled with choices to create or destroy.
When we keep it simple, we know we can change our mind.
We know we can change our focus and direction.
We know we can be happy or depressed.

Sure, we can make excuses for everything.
“I can’t do anything because I don’t have…..Money, time, support, strength, enough…..”
We can wish and fantasize that someone will come to save us from ourselves.
We can just give up, stop and settle by numbing ourselves with TV, games, addictions, drugs.

What does it take to create?
Imagine what you really want!
Describe the experience you want to have.
Write down a list of wants.

Look at all the excuses you have made and erase, forgive and delete each one.
Affirm
I can easily create what I want.
I deserve to be happy and only make positive choices for myself.
I now let go of all blocks and made-up excuses and limitations.
I forgive myself for limiting myself, now and always.

When we love, trust and respect ourselves, we create a good life for ourselves.
When we are no longer limiting, judging and or playing needy, we easily create the life we want.
When we are open and willing to free ourselves from false beliefs and limits, we choose again.
When we give our lives to all Good and only Good, we feel empowered to live fully and freely.

Begin where you are, to do what you want to do with joy and gratitude.
Begin to fully give what you want to give with enthusiasm and generosity.
Begin to offer gratitude and peace to yourself and others with love and kindness.
You can have the life your truly want by beginning to day to be happy with yourself.

Live everyday awake and aware with conscience and total responsibility.
When your life no longer serves you as it is, choose again with forgiveness and blessing.
Trust yourself to know what to do next with enthusiasm and gratitude.
Be your best in every circumstance and you will experience the joy of creating.

Loving my creations, especially my relationship with you,
 
Betty Lue

Lost?


Affirmations:
I trust my inner voice and intuition.
I let Love lead the way.
I allow all fear to disappear and I let go and listen within.
I walk in gratitude and see my way to go.


If You Are Lost…..

If you have gone astray, stop and be still.
If you have lost your way, stop and be still.
If you are confused, stop and be still.
If you are conflicted, stop and be still.

There is Wisdom in you that knows.
There is Love in you that cares.
There is Purpose in you that trusts.
There is Light in you that guides.

It is time to listen within.
This is how to begin.
Stop and be silent.
Sit for a while and remember to smile.

Give yourself time to recoup.
Recalibrate where you are.
Think about where you are going.
Get a grip on your Self.

Forgive all missteps.
Drop all your regrets.
Give yourself time .. to realign.
And be still until you “know” which way to go.

Often we sit in judgment.
Sometimes we stop with fear.
We may be still with hurting.
We may cry out in despair.

Always there is Love to guide you.
Still there is Hope in the Light.
When we Forgive the darkness,
We remember and return to the Way.

Life works when we listen within to our own inner knowing.
You are a gift to yourself.
Remember always to love you really well.
We all lose our way and must return on our own.

We may have guides who show up.
We may find those who encourage and remind us when we forget.
We may have comfort in family and friends.
But most of all, we have our True Self.

Consider using your own GPS.
Consider trusting your Higher Self.
Consider letting go of the fear you know.
Be still and listen within.

Loving us all as we travel through life,
Betty Lue

Self-Respect


Affirmations:
I trust my inner knowing and guidance.
I do what works for me.
I live by the laws of forgiveness and love.
I honor my differences and yours.


Honor Your Own Differences.

Do what is right and true for you.
Honor your own wisdom and truth.
Relinquish the need to convince others.
Stop complaining and explaining.

There is no need to convince anyone of what you know is true for you.
There is no need to try to get others to believe what you see and feel and know.
There is no need to get agreement or understanding when you trust yourself.
There is no need to be ‘Right” when believe in what is right for you.

Everyone perceives through their own emotional and historical filters.
Everyone has their own unique healing and learning journey in life.
Everyone is doing the best they know with where they are.
Everyone has their own challenges, mistakes, regrets and inner wisdom.

Opinions are just opinions based on what each one sees and believes to be right.
Facts are just our perception of what we see to be facts, but seen differently by others.
Advice is always given through our own lens of archived knowledge, experience and beliefs.
What is true and right for one is often not true and right for another.

How do we know and own our differences?
When easily influenced by parents, teachers, books and media, we may not have our own “truth”.
When comparing, exploring and seeking for answers, we may choose to try out different ways.
When we do not know what is right and true, what we do is seek the one who seems to know.

Dare, do, listen and be silent.
No need to convince anyone of your choices.
If what you choose works, do it for yourself.
If what you do is right for you, you will know it by how you feel inside.

Abide by your own right way.
Live true to your inner voice.
Honor what feels good and whole.
Be true to the Real and authentic you.

No one to please.
No one to answer to.
Nothing to prove.
So observe what works best for you.

Trusting you to listen to your own conscience and inner guide.
Those who are true to what is right for themselves will succeed.
Blessings for the wisdom that comes from what works.

Time to Forgive Mistakes


Affirmations:
I let go of what I do not want.
I free myself to think what I do want.
I undo what is not unhealthy or true.
I choose only what is highest and best for me.


Our Real Job

Our real job is to forgive our mistakes.
To forgive is to erase what is not what we want to be.
To undo what is not true for us is to erase it with Love.
To learn from mistakes is to recognize what is an error.

Our real job is to let go of thoughts and words which do not create goodness, healing and Love. 
We learned to condemn, punish, criticize, worry and blame  and increased our guilt.
The more guilt, the more fear, the more fear, the less consciousness. 
In other words, guilt tends to create the same mistakes again and still again.

It is not true that feeling guilty produces a positive change in behavior. 
It is true that healing unhealthy, destructive patterns is forgiveness of self and others.
It is true that we all seek forgiveness with love, respect and trust.
It is true that letting go of mistakes and rewarding positive behaviors strengthens health and happiness.

Our real job is to ignore those beliefs and circumstances that we want to eliminate.
Encourage the behaviors and relationships that we desire to increase.
Ignore the behaviors and relationships that we desire to let go and undo.

Forgiveness at its best is remembering only the gifts of goodness and the blessings.
Forgiveness is being willing to give our best as teachers and role models.
Forgiveness is the Love that strengthens conscious, respectful and harmonious living.
Forgiveness is the opportunity to begin again with a fresh start and new choices.
Forgiveness is a gift to ourselves to let go of the pain, the fears, the judgments and the tears.
Forgiveness is giving the love we all want to ourselves and to others.
Forgiveness lays the foundation for making new choices, choosing again.

In the Presence of authentic Unconditional Love, we are more open, creative and willing to give our best.
In the Presence of Real Love, we make healthy choices, based on our desire to love and be loved.
In the Presence of Divine Love, we feel healed and happy, confident and capable of doing our best.
In the Presence of True Love, we feel we will be loved no matter what.

This is the Love that heals.
This is the Love that binds.
This is the Love that creates.
This is the Love that grows.

Our real job is to never quit on Love.
Never withhold our Love.
Never forget to Love.

Loving you,
Betty Lue

The only mistake we ever make is when we forget to Love.
