How Do I Do It?

I appreciate and freely share all the Good I have.
I trust the Good in me and all the Good I see.
Giving expands the Good I have and share.
I am Good and Good begets only Good.

(Three spaces left for Meditation Retreat July 5 & 6, see below on Contribution basis!.)

If you don’t want to know, delete this email.
If you do want to know, ask and I will tell.
If you don’t care what I do, use the energy to care about your life.
If you do care because you want some inspiration, listen well.

How do I live the Good life?
I don’t know how I do it, until I ask the question and listen and observe the answers.
I spend my life living, not analyzing and appreciating until someone asks.
I use my life energy enjoying, being grateful and giving more of what I enjoy.

I think less and appreciate more.
I follow the path of joy and gratitude.
I fill myself with what is enjoyable and valued.
I relinquish, give up, set aside, forgive, erase and undo what is not valuable or not enjoyable.

I focus on appreciating everything I do.
I choose to do what I enjoy and enjoy what I do.
So everything is enjoyable.
My joy and gratitude keep me full and overflowing.

I do not deplete or disable myself with negative talk, unhappy feelings or destructive habits.
I do not judge, fear or complain about “what if’s”, what’s missing, or what could be better.
I spend my life energy on creating, contributing, empowering and appreciating the Good in life.
I choose what is good for you and me and all life on our planet to the best of my knowledge.

I give my ideas, resources and focus to what is Good and calling for Good.
I share my time, energy and money with the causes, people and experiences that create more Good.
I learn from everything and everyone and teach about the Good I am learning and teaching.
I stay awake and aware to the conscious realization of what is working for the Good of all.

In practical terms:
I get up each morning in a home that is beautiful and inspiring, because I have created it so.
I spend the day in relationship with those who are supportive and loving, because I chose it to be so.
I make food, do laundry, pay bills and keep everything in order and harmony, because is prefer it so.
I give my focused time, energy and contributions to those who use what I give for Good with gratitude.

In practical terms;
I do not worry or fear, blame or criticize, feel regret or guilt, because I clean my life up as I go.
I use conscious forgiveness constantly to keep my mind in line with the Good in me and the Good I see.
I step away from regret and needing to get anything from anyone, because it weakens them and me.
I take care of my body and mind and relationships and places I live and work everyday the best I know.

I love the life I create. (When I don’t, I change it immediately for the Good.)
I learn quickly and easily change my mind and my choices as needed.
I prefer to feel Good, so I think Good thoughts, do Good work, speak Good words.
I create the Good I want to see and be and have and share every day in every way.

I give to those who are willing to be responsible for the Gifts they receive.
I give to those who ask and are willing to give back.
I give to those with whom I have clear boundaries of respect and gratitude.
I give to those who are seeking to create Good in their lives.

I am sending you the website for a great place to give money to create more Good in our world.  
Loan as little as $25 to small businesses and individuals all over the world.  
The money is repaid usually within 3-6 months, so you can loan again.
 It is amazing what a few dollars can do in other parts of the world. 
 Check it out.  This is the link to use.....

Loving you for doing only Good for Goodness sake.

Empowering or Disabling?

The more I trust and believe in myself,  the more I trust and believe in others.
I love, trust and respect myself.
I am respectful, responsible and cooperative in all my relationships.
I no longer need others’ approval: I now approve of myself.
I learn from everyone and everything how to be more happy, peaceful and loving.

Are you empowering those you love?
Do you enable others to be dependent and needy?
Are you using others’ neediness to feel your own greatness?
Are you giving in order to get loyalty, indebtedness, dependency, or appreciation?

When parents feel guilt, they try to make up by buying things and saying Yes to every request.
When people feel dependent on having someone to love, they make the relationship co-dependent.
When parents judge their “deprived” childhood, they go overboard in giving their children everything.
When people feel sorry for others who have less, they often weaken them further with thoughtless giving.

Everyone has a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
We all have the right to have a life, to create our own life and to be free to choose how we live.
When we choose for another how to live, we deny them the opportunity to learn from their choices.
Our mistakes may be someone else’s source of enlightenment and self  realization.

It is time to let our children experience their choices and the natural consequences.
It is time to teach our kids being responsible is a source of power and learning.
It is time to stop giving others what they ask for….so they depend on us and stop complaining.
It is time to be responsible for our own mistakes and successes, so we can teach others with integrity.

Be respectful of your self and those around you.
Trust yourself and others to learn without your inter-”fear”-ance.
Believe people will benefit from mistakes, when they experience the natural consequences.
Know you can empower yourself by not asking or pleading for handouts from others.

Let us grow up and become a nation of responsible and mature adults.
Let us demonstrate how good it feels to take care of ourselves.
Let us admit we have been dependent on parents, government, money and “God”.
Let’s be willing to forgive our dependency, learned neediness and complaints.

Seek to be empowered by forgiving apparent mistakes.
Choose to learn from everything and everyone.
Step up with courage and wisdom to choose what is best.
Make your life Good so you can be a living example for Good.

What you do and say to your children and those around you will be believed by your life example.
Show what you have done and learned and achieved as a living example for others to see.
Be happy with yourself and your responsibilities.
Handle every relationship, every project, every expenditure, every gift with  respect and gratitude.

You are here to do Good, to have Good, to create Good and to live with the Goodness in you.
I Am living the Good Life I claim and share with you, 
Betty Lue

Be Responsible for Yourself!

I forgive myself for blaming or playing victim.
I release all fears of being fully responsible.
Being responsible is fun, safe and easy for me.
I am willing to forgive and choose again.
I create my experience and enjoy learning from everything.

Responsibility is a privilege, not a burden.
Being responsible creates freedom of choice.
Responsibility is the joy to those who are respectful and loving.
Being responsible comes easily to those who are treated with respect and gratitude.

When we love ourselves, we are responsible for our lives, finances, relationships and environment.
When we trust ourselves, we will be responsible for our messes and mistakes.
When we believe in ourselves, we easily take responsibility for creating the life we want.
When we know authentic ourselves, we are responsible for our achievements and creations.

Choose with gratitude and wisdom and you will have a fulfilling life of joy and peace.
Choose with criticism and ignorance and you will have a needy life of pain and conflict.
Choose with awareness and learning and you will have a growthful life of curiosity and wonder.
Choose with defensiveness and righteousness and you will have a limited life of separation and need.

We are responsible for our lives and our experiences.
We are responsible for what we think and say and do.
We are responsible for what we give and what we receive.
We are responsible for what we make up and what we believe.

We can choose to learn or to blame.
We can choose to change or get stuck.
We can choose to forgive or to defend.
We can choose to be responsible for ourselves or depend on others.

It serves only fearfulness to play limited, lacking and belittle ourselves.
It serves our loving to appreciate our creativity, abundance and magnificence.
We can cheat ourselves by whining, complaining and playing needy like a child.
Or we can fulfill our ability by affirming, being responsible and recognizing we are capable.

Being responsible is loving and empowering.
Being dependent is fearful and weakening.
Giving is healthy and enlivening.
Taking is unhealthy and disabling.

Consider taking total responsibility for everything.
See how empowering it is to clean up your mistakes.
Notice how good it feels to heal every relationship.
Observe how capable and strong you feel when you handle your own life.

Responsibility does not mean taking the blame.
Responsibility means being able to respond with gratitude.
Responsibility does not mean to be burdened and obligated.
Responsibility does mean we learn from everything as we erase all judgments and respond with Love.

Being responsible is empowering, freeing, renewing and encouraging ourselves to be All We Are.
Able to respond with Love to One and all, 
Betty Lue

Mercury is retrograde again, this time in the emotional sign of Cancer. And when it goes retrograde -- or appears to be moving in reverse through the sky -- miscommunications and hurt feelings can run rampant. But you can do better than just survive this Mercury Retrograde ... you can actually thrive in it!

The key to succeeding during this challenging time is to see things from a different point of view. Then, when you see a challenge coming, you'll be able to turn it into an advantage. The best way to see what's coming from a long way off is to get to a higher vantage point.

Relationships Teach Us

I give and receive love and appreciation in all my relationships.
I treat everyone equally with respect and gratitude.
I forgive myself for any mistake I make and choose again for the best I know.
I easily release my judgments, fears and resentment and choose for loving kindness.

What you give you receive.
How you live is your teaching.
The way you respect and talk to yourself teaches others how to treat you.
You are living your own teaching.

The lessons that come from relationships are a reflection of what you need to learn.
The experiences you have in your relationships you have asked for unconsciously.
Your life is direct feedback for you to know what you are here to heal, learn and teach.
What happens and who we encounter is not accidental and shows us what is needed within.

When we take responsibility for being THE ONE to make the difference, we will be empowered.
When we are respectful and seek to see what is needed rather than blame or defend, we will heal.
When we are cooperative and choose to live in harmony and peace, we will forgive and be kind.
When we are grateful for all learning and teaching opportunities, we will be happy for the work we do.

Relationships show us how to live and love.
Everyone is our teacher.
Every upset is our wakeup call to notice and respond with loving kindness and wisdom.
Every encounter is healing and holy when perceived with a forgiving mind.

When we are afraid, we can step away and ask for help.
When we are critical and judging, we can step away and forgive seeking to find a more helpful way.
When we are conflicted in how to respond, we can step away to listen within for guidance.
When we are angry, we must step away to bring peace to our mind and return to love.

All relationships invite peace and gratitude, forgiveness and Love.
All relationships ask for clear intention, commitment, conscious communication and appreciation.
All relationships are either a call for Love or a gift of Love.
All relationships offer a mirror of what we are healing, learning and serving.

When in doubt, stop and listen within;
What am I to learn from this?
How does this reflect what I am healing in myself?
How can I forgive my thoughts and choose to love instead?

Everyone is doing their best, including you.
Everyone deserves the best, including you.
Everyone desires to heal and be loved, including you.
Everyone wants to succeed, including you.

What can you do to do better?
What can you do to receive the best?
What can you do to heal and be loved?
What can you do to succeed?

No one can do it for us, but we can take full responsibility for ourselves and stop depending on others.
Depend on the Goodness and Love within you to guide your way and empower you to be your best.

We can release the past and do better now.
Betty Lue

Recommendations for All Relationships 
With mates, partners, friends, children, co-workers, etc.

Keep your agreements faithfully.
(Communicate changes honestly and immediately.)

Give more than you expect to receive. 
Do more than your “fair” share.

Receive everything with open appreciation.
Express your thanks sincerely and take nothing for granted.

Live your own life in integrity and on purpose.
Clarify, communicate and live your mission, your path, your principles and values.  

Be responsible for yourself, your work and live your life impeccably. 
Don’t expect others to pick up after you or take care of you.

Stop using, blame, criticism or guilt to control or manipulate.
Stop making demands, threats or using neediness to get your way.

Communicate effectively and respectfully.
Request a time and place and tone of voice that works for both parties.

Be your best self in all circumstances.
Focus always on teaching by example. (and apologize immediately when you forget or neglect.)

Use your time together wisely.
Focus on meaningful, positive and inspiring conversation and activities.

Spend time, money, energy and resources only on what you value and want to increase.
Waste nothing in your relationship.  No arguing, pettiness, emotional dumping or negativity.

As circumstances change, there is a need to re-commit to what works for all participants.
Families need to meet to look at the specific needs of each individual to be at their best.
Couples need to ensure that the relationship is “serving all parties.
Business partners need to return to their original agreement and consider changing roles as needed.

Life requires that we be in relationship.
With respect for ourselves and each other there is open communication.
With responsibility for the quality of our relationships, there is a willingness to seek what works for all.
With cooperation there is encouragement to listen for ways to serve the needs of everyone.
When everyone WINS, the relationships are harmonious, peaceful and enjoyable.

Summer Is Here

I am respectful, responsible and cooperative.
I teach by my example.
I make a difference by living what I value.
I treat children with respect and they respect me in return.
I live, work and play with joy and gratitude.

Kids are home from school.
What do children need?
What do parents want?
How can we do what is best for parents and children?

Children have changed over the years.
Parents have changed.
Education has changed.
Society has changed.

When we are expecting our children to be as we were, we are mistaken.
When we trust kids to be mature in their decisions, we are mistaken.
When we believe children know what is best for them, we are mistaken.
When we expect kids to know the choices they have, we are mistaken.

Children need guidance.
They need good options from which to choose what they prefer.
Children need structure.
They need healthy boundaries, schedules and positive environment.

Parents, caregivers, educators and media are all teaching our kids.
What authority figures think and say are influencing our children.
What adults do is the standard our children see for themselves.
When we are confused, conflicted, stressed, unhappy, or foolish, children learn to be the same.

Children copy adults.
Children play out the behaviors, attitudes, functions and words of “grownups”.
The problem is that more of our “adult” culture is behaving in more immature ways.
When adults are not willing to be Informed and responsible, children are the same.

Where are there responsible and respectful adults?
Where are the healthy boundaries and conscious communication? 
Who is living a good life  with wise decisions, Positive attitudes and loving relationships?
Where do our children experience the way to be responsible, respectful and cooperative?

When parents are sneaky, covert and dishonest, children learn to be.
When parents act lazy, crazy, apathetic, selfish and hurtful, children copy.
When grownups blame, gossip, swear, get drunk, have tantrums and are childish, children do the same.
It is time for all of us to grow up not down, to be responsible not lazy, to be mature not immature.

We need to create our own healthy boundaries, structure, guidance and discipline.
We adults need to become what we want for our kids.
We parents, caregivers, teachers and role models need to clean up our own behavior.
We teach by example not by words or rules.

Let us commit this summer to become more responsible and respectful of everyone.
Let us make agreements that we can be proud of and maintain.
Let us give our families a renewed sense of commitment to what is best for everyone.
Let us teach and learn what works and let go of behaviors that do not work.

We can turn around our selves, our families, our communities and nation by making new choices.
Be the best you can be with everyone, especially your family and all children.
Trusting you can and will do the Right think in all your relationships.
Betty Lue

Parents need to be responsible and then teach your children in positive and respectful ways.
The real teaching is what children see from the adults in their lives.  Children copy the behaviors of those around them.
Parents need to take full responsibility for what they are teaching with their thoughts, words and behavior!

What Runs Your Life?

I know what I want and I go for it!
I love the choices I make.
Making mistakes is a great learning experience.
I easily forgive all mistakes and learn what works.
Letting go and moving on is fun, safe and easy.

Do your worries and fears control your life?
Do you parents or partner make your choices?
Does the government or laws run your life?
Do your emotions or body limitations limit you?

When you look at your life honestly, what do you see?
Who is telling you what to do with your life?
What beliefs are making your decisions for you?
What do you use as an excuse for not being happy?

Are you free?
Are you responsible?
Are you willing to make decisions that are Good for you?
Do you believe you can be whole and happy and free?

When we give up on ourselves, we will feel depressed.
When we give others’ control, we feel restricted.
When we make excuses because we are afraid, we feel stuck.
When we try, but sabotage or quit on ourselves, we feel like failures.

Life is an adventure, learning laboratory and testing ground.
Life offers opportunities for greatness or failure.
Life is filled with chances to explore and discover.
Life is the choice between hope and despair.

Your life is yours. 
You are in control of what you believe.
You are in charge of everything your choose.  (even your choice to not choose.)
You are the captain, navigator, and crew of your own destiny.

You are fooling yourself if you have abdicated power.
You are playing dumb or lazy if you give others the blame or credit.
You are hiding behind your own fears, if you make someone else responsible.
You are the decision-maker and the recipient of your own decisions.

Decide to be responsible.
Choose to be accountable.
Declare you are the chooser.
Live your life everyday with the best you know.

Stay awake to your own experiences.
Credit yourself for the decisions that work.
Forgive the decisions that don’t work.
Relinquish all need to blame, judge, condemn, because it gets you stuck in the same mistake!

Enjoy the freedom of being responsible for everything in your life.
After all, it is your life and you are free to choose as you like!!
Betty Lue

I remember my Holy Purpose.
I see myself whole, good and happy.
I give the best of me freely and easily to all.

The more light, the more we can see what is real.
The more light, the more we know what is false.
The more light, the more we realize what to undo.
The more light, the more we seek to create more Light.

I ask you to look at your thoughts, your words and your behavior.
Are you willing to have the world be created by what you think and say and do?
If this is your reality and creation, are you willing to undo, forgive and erase what you wish not to be?
I invite you to be responsible for all you see.

I am willing to look on a world which is peaceful, free, beautiful and kind.
I am willing to participate with others in ways that are peaceful freeing, beautiful and kind.
I am wiling to create places and spaces that are peaceful, freeing, beautiful and kind.
I am willing to give myself a life that is peaceful, freeing, beautiful and kind.

I am willing to see the light.
I am willing to be the light.
I am willing to live in the light.
I am willing to express with de Light.

When I awaken, I see what can be.
When I awaken, I know I am responsible.
When I awaken, I tell the Highest Truth I know.
When I awaken, I give only the Goodness in me.

I am here to clear the fear.
I am here to step out of ignorance into awareness.
I am here to release the past and live in the present.
I am here to set myself free to fully and joyfully be.

When I see the light, I am renewed.
When my mind is filled with light, I am inspired.
When I live in the light, I am happy.
When I give only delight, I am fulfilled.

Let us not forget or neglect ourselves or each other.
Let us not close the door on remembering the Light within.
Let us not stop seeking the ways that are enlightened.
Let us not live in the unconsciousness of hatred and fear.

Forgive and choose again.
Trusting you to make your life Good for you and all.
Betty Lue

How to do affirmations:
My favorite way to do affirmations is to divide the lined page down the middle.  
The affirmation is written on the left side and your mind chatter or contradictory thought is written on the right side. 
 Then cross off the negative. 
 Write the affirmation again on the left and listen to your mind chatter and write on the right.  
Cross the mind chatter off.  
Continue writing the affirmation 20 time and listen for the resistant thought after each one. 
See below my example and cross off everything that is in pink. 
 I would do it all by hand, so I could cross it off with my pen!! 
 20 times daily for 14 days or until there is no resistance.  
Do no more than three different affirmations at a time. 
 Things may change dramatically, so be prepared to notice big difference.  
Life works when we are willing to do the work.  
Ask me for help if you have trouble finding the affirmations that are most effective for you.
Always choose an affirmation that you resist, because it will help clear away what is blocking your Good.
They will always feel like a lie in the beginning and you may find great resistance to doing them!! Do it anyway!

Affirmations for Conscious Healing  
by Betty Lue Lieber, MFT, Ph.D.
Letting go is fun, safe and easy.
I now easily bless and release all that no longer serves me.
I forgive with ease and let go with gratitude.
Everyone and everything is either giving love or calling for Love.
I am a Love giver.
The more I give Love, the more I have the Love I want.
Light, light, I want more light.
I choose to live with joy and give with gratitude.
I love my life and it loves me.
I have what I want and share the best I have.
Life works for me.
I am the chooser, never a loser.
Everything always works more exquisitely than I can plan.
I am clear, focused and committed.
I consciously communicate exactly what I want.
I trust in my inner knowing, always gentle, loving and true.
I let go of expectations, evaluations and disappointments.
I am creating a world of healing and love one person at a time.
The more I love and respect myself, the more others love and respect me.
The more I love and respect myself, the more I love and respect others.
The more I love and respect myself, the more others love and respect themselves.
I give myself the very best and all are blessed.
I am present, peaceful, awake and aware.
I share only the highest Truth I know and then I let go.
My happiness is contagious.
I replace all worry, fear and doubt with trust, freedom and blessing.
Peace and love and joy heal us All.
My body is a vehicle for learning only Love is Real. 

Useful suggestions for applying the technique of Autosuggestion to the Affirmations
Write each affirmation 10 to 20 times. 
Writing is an extremely powerful technique of autosuggestion.
Work with one or more every day. Good times are just before sleeping, before starting the day and especially whenever you feel at effect.  
They can also be recorded on cassette tape and played back to yourself. 
The best way to do that is by recording each affirmation 5 or 10 times so that you have time to think about them when they are playing.
Make a list of the affirmations that are most meaningful to you.
Put specific names and situations into the affirmations.
Play with the vocabulary in the affirmation--make it personal and meaningful to  yourself.
Say the affirmations to yourself in the first, second and third persons as follows:  
I,  (name), now like myself.  You, (name), now like yourself.   Name, now likes him/herself. 
Feel free to invent new ones.
Continue working with them daily until they become totally integrated into your consciousness.
To dissolve negative mental patterns and free maximum aliveness in your consciousness, write each affirmation in order 10 or 20 times.  
Note the ones that are most meaningful or produce the greatest charge.  
Continue working with these until they go flat.  
When they go flat, you are at total cause and master of the results implied by the affirmations.

You Are A Flower in the Garden of Life

If you would grow to be your best self
Be patient, not demanding
Accepting, not condemning
Nurturing, not withholding
Self-marveling, not belittling
Gently guiding, not pushing & punishing

For you are more sensitive than you know
Mankind is tough as war
Yet delicate as flowers
We can endure agonies
But we open fully only to warmth & light
And our need to grow is fragile as a fragrance
Dispersed by storms of will
To return only when those storms are still

So accept, respect,
Attend your sensitivity

A flower
Cannot be opened
With a hammer

What Gives You Energy?

I only choose what is best for me.
I easily release that which is unhealthy, draining or no longer works.
I support myself with healthy people, places and activities.
I now choose to give and receive only what is truly Good.
I nurture and nourish myself with all Good and only Good.

What feeds you or depletes you depends on what you choose.

You can give your energy away to fear and worry, blame and guilt.
You can give your energy away to neediness and complaints, to defensiveness and justification.
You can feed your self energy with affirmation and appreciation.
You feed yourself with energy from education and inspiration.

We are in charge of depleting our life force or nourishing our life energy.
We are able to change our thoughts, change our words and our responses.
We are able to unlearn bad habits and learn good habits.
We are able to change our relationships, our jobs and our environments.

We human beings can literally change everything in our lives.
So why don’t we simply change the “bad” stuff into “good” stuff.
Why do so many people simply “put up” with the stuff that hurts, drains and kills them?
Why not just find and choose a better way to live?

Some are addicted and attached to the old familiar and comfortable ways.
Some value whatever they have more than what they may prefer.
Some have loyalty to the people and places in which they have invested.
Some simply are too ignorant, lazy or fearful to know or do anything different?

Are you stuck with old habits?
Are you comfortable with what you live with now?
Do you believe this is better than what might lie ahead?
Can you imagine you could have a better life?

When you know you are Good, you give and receive only Good.
When you know you are Abundant, you give and receive Abundantly.
When you know you are loved, you give and receive only Love.
When you know you are Free, you live in freedom and trust.

Life works when we know it works.
Life is forgiving, when we know we are forgiven.
Life is an amazing miracle of Love and Joy, when we are that miracle of Love and Joy.
Life is easily healed and only Good is revealed, when we remember the Truth.

Sometimes people are so caught in blaming on someone or something, they cannot see Truth.
Sometimes people are so busy protecting themselves from harm, that they get stuck in fear.
Sometimes people are so full of their needs and complaints that they block the flow of Good.
Sometimes people are so focused on fixing what is broken that they neglect what is whole.

Our focus expands what we feed with our intention.
Our energy is our fuel to be used to feed the Good.
Our life is our gift to be given to create a goodness, wholeness and beauty.
Our natural state Love, Joy, Abundance and Vitality.

Let us live and love, give and receive the Highest Truths we know.

Thoughts Create

Affirmations for you:
I choose to be truly helpful.
I choose thoughts and words that help and heal.
I forgive and erase all negative habits of guilt and fear.
I forgive everyone and everything for all time, including myself.
My mind automatically erase everything that is not wholly true and loving.

What we believe, we see,
What we think, we manifest.
What we make up, is our reality.
What we focus on, increases in our awareness.

Can you imagine that your thoughts have power?
Do you know that your words create your experience?
Do you understand that your emotions can heal or hurt?
Do you see that your beliefs come true right in front of you?

Are you in control of what you believe and think and say and do?
Do you know that you are in charge of your life, your world, your emotions?
Are you aware that the world is not controlling your life unless you allow it?
Do you get that you can undo what is not true and allow only good to happen to you?

Are you willing to look and erase what you don’t want to see and be?
Are you open to the possibility that you can choose how you live your life?
Are you capable of changing your mind and attitude, your behavior and habits/
Are you ready to become the happy, healthy, creative and successful you? 

Being responsible is not welcome to those who find comfort in being needy.
Being responsible is not a positive for those who have invested in a life of victimization.
Being responsible is not freedom from suffering and pain for those who find solace in depression.
Being responsible is not familiar or easy for those who have learned to be dependent and resentful.

Being able and willing to respond to what is with love is healing.
Being able and willing to make changes is freedom .
Being able and willing to undo what no longer serves is expansive.
Being able and willing to choose consciously is transformative.

When we know we can change all things for Good, we open to learn new ways.
When we know we have the power to undo unconscious behavior, we  are willing to forgive.
When we realize we are in charge of the Good in our lives, we stop the hurtful stuff.
When we cease blaming anyone, including ourselves, we are excited to develop new habits of mind.

We can believe in victimization, restriction and fear, and experience more of the same everyday.
We can believe in sovereignty, freedom and trust and experience more of the same.
We can believe in disaster, disease, and depression and experience these in our world.
We can believe in beauty, wholeness and happiness and experience these in ourselves.

We are choosing the reality we live in and the relationships we have.
We are choosing our thoughts (imagination), words (communication), and behavior (kindness or blame).
We are choosing how we respond to everything and everyone.
We are responsible and able to respond to what seems to be creating it real or undoing its reality.

How you respond determines how long it lasts.
How you respond either sustains or disappears it.
How you respond gives it power to hurt or heal.
How you respond lifts you up or puts you down.

Choose always and only for Good.
Believing in the power in you,

There Is No Medicine

There is not a medicine, herb, ointment or potion that can compare to the power of love and forgiveness for healing the body, emotions, mind and soul.  

Love and forgiveness must be present before true healing can occur.  By consciously choosing love and forgiveness,  we can free ourselves of the blockages commonly known as pain and dis-ease.  

Forgiveness opens the door for love to enter.  When you choose to forgive yourself, you naturally let go of guilt.  You are then free to love yourself and life more fully.  When you find it in your heart to forgive another person, you will naturally let go of resentment and anger.  You are then free to love that person more fully, and will experience greater harmony in all of your relationships.  

This is the basic formula necessary for healing ourselves on an individual level and for healing our world on a global level.
