Step Away!

I step away to remember Love.
I trust in the Power of Love.
I remember Love when I still my judging mind.
Love is the answer, whatever the question.

Step Away!

How do you find the Love in the midst of judgment?
How do you trust in Love when you are afraid?
How do you remember the value when you are losing?
How do you learn when you are feeling foolish?

Life has many lessons which cannot be learned without inner peace.
We may be in relationships which hurt.
We may try to love when we are afraid.
We may be angry and cannot even see.

It is time to step away.
Find your center in the quiet.
Create space by being alone.
Take time to listen within.

Some need to live away from their parents.
Some need distance from their partners.
Some think best when separate from others.
Some feel better when they are alone.

What do you need to feel Love?
What do you do to find inner peace?
How do you see things differently?
Is it time to step away to find solace?

Sanctuary offers the opportunity to heal.
Separation gives space to see things differently.
Distance can offer time to forgive.
Releasing the past is key to looking again.

Take space from the problem and it may disappear.
Stop the emotionally bleeding and heal the wound.
Give yourself the sensitivity and respect you deserve.
Be willing to comfort and console yourself to seek the high ground.

There are many ways to resolve conflict.
There are infinite possibilities to heal.
There are numerous choices to make daily.
But always find what brings peace to you.

You know yourself better than anyone.
Give yourself the Love and wisdom you want
Trust in the intuition and guidance of your heart.
Believe in the power of healing prayer and love.

You hold the key to your life fulfillment.
You know what is the calling of your heart.
You can behold your idea life choices.
This is your time to choose what is best for you.

Love yourself well today and everyday in every way.

Love Is Letting Go!

I am grateful for this day and everyday.
Love is the gratitude I share with others and myself.
I see my life as a continuous teacher of Love.
I let go of fear to fully recognize the Gift I Am.

Love Is Letting Go of Fear

This is a time to let go.
Dropping leaves and beliefs to find the meaning in life.
Letting go of the rules and programs, addictions and attachments, discloses what is lasting.
Remembering the goodness and beauty in all things renews our Spirit and our joy.

Autumn is the time when we observe our “thanks” giving and our gratitude.
What are we seeing when we assume things will always be good?
What are we doing when we take for granted what we have?
It is time we look deeply and see what has real meaning for us.

Life transforms itself with coming and going in many phases.
We may not notice how rich and full our life is everyday.
The wakeup call is to be grateful for the comfort and good we have.
We can want for more, but perhaps we have too much to appreciate.

When we seem to lose, we often are awakened to value what is valuable.
When we neglect our gratitude, we may become numb to our joy.
When we sit in our comfort zone, we may take for granted our Good.
While we may grieve letting go, we can awaken to value our lasting treasures.

Love is letting go of fear.
Love is remembering to trust.
Love is allowing the relinquishment of attachment.
Love is trusting in the power of loving, no matter what.

We can talk about love, but do we live in love?
We can focus on getting love, but do we truly give that Love?
Are we attached to “getting what we want” and neglect giving what we have?
Are we addicted to have our every need met from someone, but lazy in our giving to ourselves?

Perhaps this is the time we wait on no one, and align with the One we are.
Perhaps we are waking up to the “grand giver within who is always there to provide and protect.
Perhaps we are called upon to stop our dependency on another and need to find our dependence on Love.
Perhaps there is a connection with the higher power, the God and Good within us, that we must acquire.

Can you encourage the love within you when you are satisfied?
Do you appreciate how much you have and do and are?
Are you assuming what you want will always be available?
Do you trust that life sustains and protects you during trying times?

Let go of lazy and unconscious ways.
Enliven yourself without trial and tribulation.
Encourage your gratitude everyday during good times.
Be willing to live in that Love and Gratitude with Wisdom and Grace.

Life is our teacher.
Love is the lesson.
Joy is our reward.

Loving you,
Betty Lue

What Do You Expect?

The more positive I am, the better life flows.
The more I expect the best, the more I experience Goodness.
The more I forgive my negative expectations, the more happy I am.
I expect the best and forgive the rest.

What Do You Expect?

What you expect, you look for.
What you expect, you encourage.
What you expect, is what you create.
What you expect, will be your reward.

Expect miracles?
Expect disaster?
Expect the worst or the best?
Expect what you don’t want or you do want?

Which way is best for you?
Do you know what you expect will be what you prepare for?
Are you aware that your mind wants to be right?
Do you understand that where you look for good, you tend to find it?

Interesting to contemplate your choices.
Consider where you have learned to have a negative or positive attitude.
Look for what you want and you will find it.
F-E-A-R = False Expectations Appearing Real

Do you look for what you want or prepare for what you don’t want?
Do you seek out explanations and justification for failure or success?
Have you prepared for the life’s problems and challenges?
Are you aware of how much of you is already expecting things to not work?

Is it time you change your mind?
You are the master of your intention.
You can continually seek for Goodness sake.
You can plan for a future of health and positive outcomes.

It is time that we recognize our mind is ours to control.
We are the ones choosing what will be our outcome.
We can turn our lives over to aligning with Good.
We can forgive and clear away our disappointments.

Why not expect the best?
Why not plan for positive outcomes?
Why not encourage the best for you and others?
Why not make the most of what you have and do?

Life is ours to listen within and allow the Good to flow.
We can effect change with our choices and our voice.
We can trust all things will work together for good.
We can appreciate the opportunities to live in Love.

Loving you,
Betty Lue

Just Say “NO”!

I say “No” quickly and easily to all that is hurtful.
I stop all practices that are hurtful to anyone.
I trust myself to protect myself from all harm.
The more I care for myself with respect, the more I care for others respectfully.

Say “NO”!

Are you willing to say “No”?
Do you protect yourself?
Do you speak up for you?
Do you allow yourself to be victimized, bullied and intimidated?

It is time to say “No”
It is time to stop all violent words and behaviors.
It is your responsibility to never allow yourself to be hurt.
It is wrong to let yourself be threatened or abused.

Just say “NO”!
Learn to say “No” to the ways you abuse yourself.
Listen to your words and your thoughts.
Never allow your choices to be hurtful to you.

We must learn to depend on our own courage and wisdom.
We must stop making excuses or justifications.
We must undo the passivity that allows harm.
We must give up our “nice” ways of coping.

We need not abuse another to stop abuse.
We need to learn how to say “no” before anyone gets hurt.
We need to realize it is harmful to allow harm.
We can be the change we want to see.

Stop yourself and others from using abusive language.
Stop yourself from watching violence and abuse.
Stop making excuses for children doing harm.
Stop allowing those around you to do harm to themselves.

There is fear because we allow war, threat, attack and abuse.
Humanity is using threat and attack to stop threat and attack.
When we encourage what we don’t want, we increase what we don’t want.
Our strategy is to increase rather than to stop what we don’t want.

It is essential that we find a better way in our own personal lives.
It is key to eradicate harm by stepping away and saying “NO”!
In our homes we must learn to stop hurting one another with words.
In our work place we must not allow abusive practices.

Individually we can make the change we want to see.
We must end discrimination.
We must not allow excuses.
We must change the culture.

This is our time to end what is hurtful or harmful to anyone or anything.
End what is wrong today.
Say “NO”. 
Trusting you.

5 Signs of Emotional Abuse or Unhealthy Relationships

1.    They are Hyper-Critical or Judgmental Towards You
It is human nature to critique or judge, but in emotionally abusive situations, someone takes it to the next level. This can look like someone is:
    Putting you down in front of others
    Humiliating or embarrassing you
    Using sarcasm or “teasing” or “jokes” to make you feel badly about yourself
    Having an opinion about a lot of what you say, do, or think
    Upset if/when you don’t agree (e.g., how you dress, how you spend your money, who you spend time with, what you are interested in)

2.    They Ignore Boundaries or Invade Your Privacy
We all have the right to our own space. Sometimes it can be tricky to distinguish between the rush and thrill of any new relationship or connection and a violation of     your space because you may feel that you want to spend all of your time with this awesome person. This can look like your partner:
    Wants to move a relationship faster than you are comfortable with either emotionally or physically (e.g. saying “I love you” very quickly and pressuring you to do the same, pushing you to engage in sexual activities, pushing you to move in together)
    Checks your texts messages, email or social media accounts without your permission

3.    They are Possessive and/or Controlling
The abuser may try to restrict your behavior through unreasonable jealousy such as:
    Monitoring your actions
    Constantly calling or texting when you are not around
    Getting upset when you want to spend time by yourself or with family or friends alone
    Isolating you from other people in your life and/or activities you enjoy or work
    Demanding access to your phone, email, or social media accounts

4.    They are Manipulative
An emotionally abusive person may try many things to get you to do what they want or feel badly, such as:
    Withdrawing affection when you’ve done something “wrong”
    Ignoring or excluding you
    Guilt trips
    Making you doubt yourself
    Denying something you know is true

5.    They Often Dismiss You and Your Feelings
The abuser might try to play down your emotions or feelings by:
    Saying you are too sensitive or calling you crazy
    Making fun of your achievements or hopes and dreams
     Refusing to talk about or take responsibility for their actions
     Blaming you or someone else for their actions (it’s never their fault)
     Being indifferent to your feelings

Getting Caught Up!

I forgive myself for being unavailable to help.
I allow my inner guidance to show me how to be truly helpful.
I share my love by seeking to see things differently.
I join in positive prayer to find a better way for the Good.

Contagious Emotions

Are you an “empath”?
Do you get caught up in others’ feelings?
Do you find yourself feeling what others are feeling?
If you find you have their fear and their pain, you are taking on their energy.

What or with whom we associate, we strengthen in ourselves.
What we perceive in others, we will strengthen in ourselves.
We are beings who feel, connect and even long to belong.
When we join with others, we often unconsciously join with them.

If this does harm to you, it may be time to undo this habit.
If this is confusing to you, it may be we need to forgive ourselves.
If you take on others’ energies, we may need to distance ourselves.
We can feel for others to be helpful without needing to live their lives.

There are healers, therapists, family members who feel those they help.
There are friends and whole cultures who take on the energies of others.
As human family we often want to sympathize and empathize for those we know.
It is our way of caring and sharing pain and sorrow, grief and even anger.

What we feel for others may be too strong to handle.
What we feel with others may seem like ours individually.
What we feel in our caring and sharing may be too strong to handle.
What we feel in our desire to feel may be overwhelming and make us sick.

To be truly helpful consider how you want to feel.
To affect positive change, consider what you can do.
To share in the feelings see what you can learn.
To make a difference listen for what you can do.

Caring feelings allows us to have greater understanding.
Being a helper invites us to learn and be more helpful.
When we can feel what is being shared, we can access more resources.
When we more accurately empathize or sympathize, we are more present.

Overwhelming feelings can make it difficult to help effectively.
Being distracted and distressed may limit access to rational choices.
Falling into despair or depression may interfere with spiritual wisdom.
Joining with another’s hopelessness may actually may increase and make it worse.

Consider being the helper by using your own spiritual resources.
Be the one who uplifts, seeks the light and allows hope and faith.
Step away in consciousness to find a better way and see things differently.
Change the channel and be the guide to let go and find a higher outcome.

In our helpfulness we can lead the way to higher ground and shared love and faith.

Love No Matter What!

I never quit on Love.
Love is the key to being happy and healthy.
Love works for me.
I remember Love and return to wholeness.

Love No Matter What!

Staying positive is essential to being happy.
Looking forward is essential to being positive.
Forgiving mistakes and hardship is key to loving.
Releasing judgments is important to feeling good.

When we feel good, we are positive.
When we feel good, we are happy.
When we feel good we look forward.
When we feel good we are loving.

When you have hard times, it is important to be loving.
Be loving to yourself.
Be loving to those around you. 
Be loving to the situation at hand.

Loving can mean being helpful
Loving can mean being grateful.
Loving can mean being gentle.
Loving can mean trusting.

There are many ways to make the situation better.
Our attitude is key to the experience and the outcome.
When we are negative, we narrow our vision.
When we are loving, we open our intuition.

Our inner guidance system will seek a match to our energy.
Choose to love to attract loving energy in all your affairs.
Choose to forgive all negative feelings to clear attracting negative energy.
Choose to undo whatever is fearful, defensive or hurtful to clear attracting the same.

During these challenging times, we are called to remember to Love.
Remember to listen within to the guidance of Love.
Remember to erase negative energies to clear the fear.
Remember to undo what is not helpful or healthful to anyone.

Life is for giving.
We are the gift of Love.
We are here to give and receive Love.
This is the time to give the best you have to all.

Loving you,
Betty Lue

Stay Safe!

I take care of me so I can care for you.
I am safe and provide safety for others.
I trust in my safety as I listen to my inner voice.
I am grateful for opportunity to serve others.

Staying Safe.

Do you keep yourself safe and calm?
Do you provide peace and support for yourself?
Do you know how to be gentle with yourself?
Are you willing to treat yourself with sensitivity and kindness?

With all the natural disasters, let us realize how important our safety is.
Do you know what you need to feel safe?
Do you forget how to be respectful of your needs?
Are you aware of how sensitive your really are?

Observe your situation.
Take care of the people with you.
Be willing to share your information.
Help others with helpful predictions.

Rather than observe of events, be a visionary.
Always see the best.
Look for a future with positive outcomes.
Place your energy on what good can happen.

Remember that when we accept our current state, we are calm and creative.
When we are calm, we are more resilient and can accommodate for what is.
Our safety relies on our defenselessness and trust.
We can be more creative in our solutions when we are open-minded.

With every life challenge, we can learn.
With every difficult event, we can trust.
With every problem, we can find solutions.
With all negative events, we can seek what is positive.

The current wildfires raging in northern California, we have an opportunity to learn.
With the hurricanes, flooding and fires, we can volunteer our resources to give back.
With the challenges to our country and around the world, we can practice hope, faith and charity.
With whatever confronts us personally or collectively, we can be safe.

In our safety, we have the opportunity to serve others.
In our safety, we can share our resources.
In our safety we can offer positive thoughts and prayer.
In our safety we can be calm and at peace.

All things work together for good.
We are here to be truly helpful.
We are here to share our love and trust.
We are here to join together in faith.

Let us love one another and be safe.
Loving you,
Betty Lue
