Sharing Is Caring!

Take Care of Yourself First.

Share your Best with Others.

Appreciate How You Care.


Affirmations:

I take impeccable care of myself and my life.

I give my best to others because I care.

I receive what I give with gratitude and joy.

I show that I care and share my love and respect daily.


Let’s Share Our Best!


Have you learned to share?

3 & 4 year olds learn to share in preschool.

Some adults have never learned to share.

When we focus only on ourselves, we sometimes forget to share.


When we are busy trying to be first, we may not notice the ones left behind.

When we are trying to get all we can, we may not notice the need to give.

When we get attached to our own problems, we may not care about others.

When we are self-involved, we may forget or neglect the call for love in those around us.


Learn to take care of yourself.

Handle your own basic needs.

Start your day in a positive way.

Be respectful and kind to you.


When we have not managed our own basic needs, we have no ability to really care for others.

Some basics you may need to learn.

  • Go to bed and get up at a regular time.
  • Eat the best foods at regular mealtimes.
  • Clean up after yourself in the kitchen.
  • Personal care done daily with self respect.
  • Make your bed and clean your room.
  • Spend money wisely with appreciation.
  • Use you time well for education, information, helpfulness.
  • Give yourself really good rest, good food, good friends, good play and work.
  • Everyday engage in something meaningful, helpful and creative.


When tempted to get lazy in your life, you will see your self esteem, health and happiness go down.

The more we do what is good for us, the more we feel good about ourselves and our wellbeing.

Value yourself and how you live and love and give.

You matter in everything you think and say and do.


Loving you and sharing the best I know,

Betty Lue


The best way to share is to be a good example for others.

Listen to Feelings!


Crying, anger, jealousy, fear, all emotions are forms of communication.

Every emotional expression is communicating. 

Even without words, emotions are communicating.

Are we listening to ourselves and to one another?


When an infant, child or adult cries, they are communicating their needs.

Is anyone listening?

When I see children cry, they need to be heard.

When I watch parents ignore their children’s feelings, I recognize they are not listening.


The primary reason for not listening and responding is guilt and fear.

People feel guilty and afraid to listen, because we unconsciously know we have caused the pain.

When we recognize we have not been loving, accepting, understanding and helpful, we feel guilty.

When we feel guilt, we usually either withhold our love and withdraw or judge and blame the other.


When someone is acting afraid, they need to be heard and reassured.

When someone is feeling guilty and sad, they need to be heard and forgiven.

When someone is responding with jealousy and resentment, they need to be heard and loved.

When someone is hurting and feeling sorry for themselves, they need to be heard, loved and comforted.

When someone is behaving and speaking with anger, they need to be heard, respected and responded to.


When I don’t know what is being communicated under the feelings, I gently ask.

When I listen to words that don’t make sense, I ask what is really upsetting.

When I hear and see someone behaving insanely, I listen for the real reason.

When anyone is upset, hurting, angry, jealous or afraid, they are not feeling safe and off purpose.


Feelings deserve to be heard.

Feelings deserve to be listened to with respect.

Feelings deserve to be interpreted to source the underlying need.

Feelings deserve to be responded to with love, trust and acceptance.


Emotional expression may be exaggerated to get attention.

Emotional behavior may be extreme because of prior buildup of negativity.

Emotional words can be inflammatory to get reactive behavior and distraction.

Emotional interaction can totally detour potential positive healing communication.


Take the time to listen deeply.

Have the kindness to calm the situation.

Pause before reacting with intolerance.

Give your best response with the intention to be helpful.


With emotional needs, the person simply needs our kind, respectful and loving attention.

Let us always give our very best to ourselves and to one another.

We are here to truly helpful to everyone, of all ages and expressions.

Love works, so let it prevail in all situations.

Love is Trust.

I trust you to freely be who you are.


And I thank you.

Yes I thank you

For the love you give to me.

And I thank you .

Yes I thank you 

For the Love that sets us free.

Charley Thweatt song.


Love Is Freeing!


When love is special, we get attached.

When love is freeing, everyone learns.

Love is trusting, not suspicious or restrictive.

Love is open, not closed and limiting.


With human attachment, we often decide only to love when our needs are met.

With human neediness, we choose to love those who take care of us.

With human dependence, we stop loving when we feel hurt or afraid.

When human commitment, we quit on love when others stop loving us.


True Love is our natural state.

When we love, we feel alive and free.

When we are flowing the love within us, we are whole and happy.

When we block or stop or withhold love, we feel unhappy and sick.


Love without attachment is freely shared with all.

Love with trust in ourselves is given naturally and openly.

Love is not sexual or promising to live together forever.

Love is allowing positive energy to flow between us.


I am loving you right now.

My love for you does not end, even if you are not my friend.

My love for you comes from deep inside where only goodness resides.

I love you because Love has no beginning and no end.


Love does not need reasons to love.

Love is the life force, “God Force” that lives within me.

Love is the joy of my being and the desire of my heart.

Love is my reason for being and my gift to be given.


I love you because you are here with me.

I love me because I am here with you.

Together our love can make our dreams come true.

Let us free one another to always and only choose love.


Loving you and me to always be as free and happy as we are created to be!

Betty Lue


Getting Free (By Setting Others Free) by Randall Keller

It is not unusual for us human beings to secretly wish and hope that the people we’re close to don’t become too magnificent. We don’t really want these significant others to be too free or too powerful or too creative or too successful or to dream too wild a dream. We actually prefer that they stay small, “manageable”, non-threatening, tame. After all, we don’t want to be made to feel uncomfortable or inadequate or diminished or challenged by the boldness and joyfulness with which someone else lives his or her life.

But, until we are willing and actively desire that the key people in our lives be totally free and powerful, we cannot be free and powerful ourselves. So, here is an affirmation-prayer that may help us begin freeing others, so that we can begin to free ourselves.

 

I, _____(your name)_____ want you, _____(his or her name)_____, to be the highest, clearest, most powerful expression of God that you can be. I would not limit you in any way, knowing that only as I encourage you to expand, explore and grow, can I myself be free. So I fully support you in being and expressing all that you are.

I want you to go where you feel called to go, to speak and act as you feel guided, and to express yourself in whatever ways seem right. There is nothing I do not want you to do, for I know that all movement is contained within God and always leads us to Him.

I am at peace with whatever decisions and choices you make, no matter how they may seem to affect me. Since I know that God loves and supports me perfectly, I know that however you choose to be with me must be a manifestation of that divine love and support. Because I trust God, I trust you. And because I trust you, I trust myself.

So, be free, be powerful, be unlimited. And know that I, _________, want you, _________, to be the highest, clearest, most powerful expression of God that you can be. I fully support you in being all that you are.

Gift!

Affirmations:

I give the best I have and all is given unto me.

I learn from what I receive how to give better.

I am the real gift as I give the Love I am.

Life is for giving and I Am the Gift!


Tis a Gift to be Given.

Tis a Gift to be Giving.

Tis a Gift to be Receiving.

Tis a Gift to simply Be!


Everything is Gift!


When we come from Gratitude, everything is Gift!

Whether giving or receiving, everything is a gift.

Whether we judge good or bad, everything can be useful.

Whether right or wrong, all we give and receive can be helpful.


We learn to judge to discern and discriminate.

We value judging as a way to tell what is good for us.

We throw away what we can no longer use.

We hang on and save what we judge to be useful and helpful.


As we exercise our own discernment, we strengthen our beliefs.

As we use our judging mind, we see what we treasure and what we discard.

We are learning with all the gifts of life to be at choice.

We are deciding what we want to be and have and do.


Yes, every relationship provides information and education.

Every encounter offers opportunities to stay and speak or not.

Every word we offer can be used as lessons to be learned.

Every interaction is a way of projecting or defending.


We each and all are giving and receiving.

In silence or with words we have gifts we can receive.

With kindness or unkindness we learn how and what we receive.

There are many facets of learning with everything given and received.


Some throw away what is unwanted and unkind.

Some learn from what they receive what is good for them. 

Some learn how to transform unkindness into healing.

Some earn an opportunity to give themselves the experience.


Many make up their mind about good and bad gifts.

Some are curious and want to look inside and learn more.

Some immediately defend, reject and avoid what seems noxious.

A few are curious about what is being asked to be given in return.


It is a gift to keep it simple.

It is a gift to give only what we want to receive.

It is a gift to learn from both giving and receiving.

It is a gift to give consciously.


Thanks for giving always and only the best you have.

Thanks for remembering to always love you first.

Thanks for returning to the sender what is helpful and good for them.

Loving you and me in giving and receiving,

Betty Lue

Delight in the Light!

Affirmations:

I choose to lighten up mind and body.

I feel and know this is my time to be happy and free.

I let go of all heaviness and darkness safely and easily.

My life is truly good for me and those around me. 

 

8:32PM PDT Summer Solstice; Longest Day and Greatest Light


Light, Light and More Light!


What do you see when there is great light?

You see everything you cannot see in the dark.

What you see is what you may not have noticed.

What you see may be what was in the shadows..


If your life is squeaky clean and in order, you feel great.

If you life is messy, dirty and disorderly, you may feel guilty.

When you feel guilty, you may get motivated and clean it up.

But more often folks get mad at everyone or get depressed and withdraw.


So this is a good time to get to work and clean up past leftovers.

This is wonderful time to finish projects and fulfill commitments.

It is a great time to apologize and make amends for neglecting or forgetting.

It is your best time to see where you are going and what you need to get there.


Invite in more light to see even more in yourself and your world.

Ask to see what is needed to be your best self at home and at work.

Clarify what you have left undone, unfinished, unfulfilled and unhappy.

You can use this time to make everything clear and bright and full of light.


Some folks love the light because they feel free and alive.

Some folks hate the light because they see and feel too much.

Some people close their blinds and stay inside because they don't want to look at the mess.

We can all get up, wake up, smell the flowers and fresh air and celebrate the right to be alive.


If this is your right time, use it to its fullest.

Revamp you priorities and plans.

Check in with what brings more joy.

Check out of what depresses and depletes you.

 

Lift yourself up with enthusiasm, fun and celebration.

Honor your body and mind with positive activity.

Own your environment by respecting all you have.

Let go of unneeded stuff, food and unhappy memories.


We can easily let go and lighten up our lives.

We can quickly change and undo old unhealthy habits.

We can do what we have always wanted to do with no regret.

We can claim our right to be whole and happy and free.


Enlighten your mind by releasing the darkness.

Enlighten your body by letting go of the heaviness.

Enlighten your life by undoing what is not good for you.

We ascend together by choosing a higher way in our lives.


Upward and onward.

Betty Lue
