Stop…. Breathe….. Step Away

Do you want to receive my Parenting Reminders or Relationships Reminders ?
I send these periodically to those who are willing to be conscious and successful in these roles.

I no longer need approval from others. I now approve of myself.
I am highly pleasing to myself in the presence of _________.
I trust and respect myself, therefore I treat others with trust and respect.
The more I respect myself and others, the more they learn to respect me.
I control my emotions by choosing the thoughts I think.
I behave as a responsible and respectful adult with self control and self discipline.

When there is a problem or upset, what works?
When you react with anger, what can you do?
When you make things worse, what is a better strategy?
When you feel out of control, what is effective?

When you feel the problem coming on, stop yourself.
Take a few deep breaths to pause and clear your thoughts.
Step away enough to see the problem without emotion.
When you are able to be neutral, factual and adult, you return.

Our work as adults is to be informed.
Our work is to be able to see and think and speak clearly.
Our work is to be a safe place to understand  and respond with respect.
Our work is to know better and do better.

What is your goal in all situations?
Is your goal to be successful or right?
Is your goal to help or to hinder?
Is your goal to respect or to bully?

If you have learned to use power, you will use threats.
If you have learned manipulation, you will use guilt.
If you have learned to be “nice”, you will use bribes.
If you have learned to be resourceful, you will be tricky. 

Whether dealing with a stranger or family member, you must know your desired outcome.
Without a clear goal, we are tempted to just flounder around trying to get our way.
Without a clear end in mind, you may allow the other to lead the dance.
Without a vision of respect, responsibility and cooperation, you may create more mess.

What brings on anger are feelings of powerlessness, helplessness, fear and confusion.
“When in doubt, have a temper tantrum.”
When in fear, get angry.”
When upset, scare yourself and the other with your rage.”

Childish behavior escalates the problem.
Childish behavior fuels the emotional upset.
Childish behavior uses whatever tactics seem to get attention.
Childish behavior often brings out the worst in the other.

The adult clears themselves before them engage in resolving the issue.
The adult stops their emotional reactions.
The adult takes a pause to clear negative thoughts and harmful emotions.
The adult steps away for the situation to get a new perspective and optimum response.

To be adult is to be wise and open-minded.
To be adult is to be respectful and responsible.
To be adult is to be willing and able.
To be adult is to listen with patience and acceptance.
To be adult is to be safe and non-judging.
To be adult is to want the optimum win/win solution.
To be adult is to care enough to share your desire for what is fair.

Adult Behavior:
Stop emotional reactions.  (Don’t say something hurtful to you or the other.)
Breathe to clear your mind.  (Pause for a few seconds/minutes.  Take a time out!)
Step away to see clearly. (Find a new perspective and goal for win/win solution.)
Listen for your real needs.  ( Listen without judgment or prejudice to what is needed.) 
Set a goal for positive solution. ( Choose to be a safe place for peaceful resolution.)
Learn to appreciate yourself. (Appreciate every learning and successful experience.)

Trusting you to find a Better Way!

Fear and Love

Life is Good and getting better.
I choose to live with loving and peaceful thinking and speaking.
I forgive quickly and receive the blessings instantly.
I learn from everything and everyone ONLY LOVE IS REAL.

Love Is Our Natural State.
Happiness is Our Natural State.
When we are not loving, respectful and kind, some thought has inter-feared!
When we are not happy, we have lost of purpose and love for Self.

When we withhold Love, respect and kindness, we experience fear.
When we are afraid to love, we withhold who we are.
When we are not wholly Being the Love We Are, we feel separate and afraid.
When we are not sharing the Goodness We have, we feel unloving, unkind and unforgiving.

The cycle of fear and withhold of love comes from our judging mind.
When we judge, it is because we are afraid.
When we are afraid, we judge.
Where we are judging and afraid, we get stuck!

When we are stuck, we may experience, stubbornness, sickness, separation and stupidity.
When we are stuck, we may feel confusion, conflict, disconnection and correction.
When we are stuck, we may have faulty beliefs, misperceptions and limited thinking.
When we are stuck, we may be consumed, depleted, obsessive, distracted and demanding. 

Freedom comes with forgiving ourselves.
Freedom is created by undoing our fear.
Freedom is experienced when we erase and release our faulty and limiting thinking.
Freedom comes from choosing only peace.

In peace there is help.
In peace of mind there is openness.
In peace there is strength.
In peace we return to our natural Self.

When we are aware of the value of peace in mind and body and words, we can choose again.
When we know that our crazy and confusing thinking is distracting and destructive, we can stop.
When we learn a better way of being, doing and giving, we will experiment with its effectiveness.
When we understand that peace is essential, to healing, understanding and Love, we will choose peace.

Smiling at how simple it is.
Laughing at us for getting lost in the insanity.
Amazed at how many excuses and defenses we create.
Surprised by how long it seems to take to give it up.

If we only knew the trauma and drama we cause ourselves, perhaps we would stop the pain.
If we only understood how judgments hold everything we judge in place, perhaps we would let go.
If we only recognize how fun, safe and easy life can be by letting go, perhaps we would forgive.
If we only perceive the lesson and the blessing in all things, perhaps we would open to receive the Good.

I prefer to forgive myself quickly and let go of fear.
I prefer to choose peace and allow the understanding to come.
I prefer to stop the insanity and remember only Love.
I prefer to experience a fun, safe and easy life…..
Betty Lue

Let’s Get Real!

I live my life effectively and successfully.
I trust I am where I need to be doing what is mine to do.
My relationships are harmonious, my work is fulfilling and I love myself well.
I live my life and learn with wisdom, ease and grace.

If you have a problem, deal with it.
If you have a pain, handle it.
If you have a conflict, clear it.
If you have a need, fill it.
If you have a question, ask it.
If you want an answer, listen to it.

If you have something taking your time and attention……
Deal with it thoroughly, until it is resolved.

Peace may be the answer.
Love may be the answer.
Faith may be the answer.
Giving may be the answer.
Persistence may be the answer.
Information may be the answer.
Listening within may be the answer.
Changing your attitude may be the answer.
Resting and surrender may be the answer.
Your answer is yours alone!

To quit is to give up on yourself.
To complain drains your energy.
To suffer is not right or fair for you.
To resent makes it linger and get worse.
To feel guilty gets you stuck.
To feel self pity makes you feel lonely and hopeless.

Do something or find someone who will happily do it for you.
Do not quit until you get what you really want.
Ask clearly and stop being so picky that you resent what you get.
Appreciate the answers that come and ask more specifically if you want more.

Life is a search and rescue mission.
You are searching for what you think you have lost.
You are rescuing what you sent on a wild goose chase,
You feel sad when you lose it and ecstatic when you find it.

Life is a get-out-of-bed and go-to-school assignment.
First you have to wakeup, like it or not, and then you need to learn something.
The longer you malinger and play dumb, the longer you stay stuck in the same grade.
Graduation comes when you “GET IT!”

We are responsible for solving our problems.
We are responsible for cleaning up our misses.
We are responsible for healing our relationships glitches.
We are responsible for handling our affairs.

Our life, however we see it, is ours to live, learn, laugh and let go.
The process is the process.
The joy or misery is ours to choose.
Consider being open and willing, grateful and happy.

Loving us, 
Betty Lue

Life Works When You Work Joyfully at Life!

I always have plenty of energy to do what I love.
There is always enough of everything I need to live my life with joy and gratitude.
Life works for me and with me, because I enjoy and appreciate life.
I spend everyday in celebration and appreciation of all that I have and do and give.
I love my life and it loves me.

I am happy because I am grateful.
I am grateful because I am happy.
I am happy I am loving.
I am loving because I am happy.
I am peaceful because I am happy, grateful and loving.

The Good Life does not depend on what you have.
The Good Life depends on what you make with what you have.
The Good Life depends on being happy, grateful and loving.
We can choose to be grateful, happy and loving and have a Good Life.

Sharing the life I choose for myself: (Only read if you want to know!)
Up by 5:30-6AM (without and alarm.)
Bed made, inspiration written and read, health smoothie made from fresh organic fruits and veggies.
Fresh air, sunshine, garden harvesting, walk for gratitude, Loving Reminders written and sent,

Spend last two hours of day with Robert relaxing, reading and/or being inspired/amused.
In bed by 10 or 11PM.

So what do I do that is at the heart of a Good life?
No resistance to what is.
Stay present and focused with each activity.
I allow and enjoy creative solutions.
I trust God and Good in all things.
I live what I teach with no complaints or stories to tell.
I speak only about what matters, because it inspires, teaches or reminds.
I spend time with kids and adults learning what matters to them and facilitating through love.
I encourage everyone, beginning with me, to be consistently peaceful and happy
I use my time, energy and resources consciously for my purpose in being.

My work is to do what has heart and meaning.
My relationships are to be truly helpful.
My money is used to serve the Highest Good as I am guided.

It doesn’t matter what you have as much as how you perceive, believe and utilize what you have.
I have had money and no money.  
I have had a home and no home.
I have had a partner and no partner.
How I live my life is totally free for me to choose.

I choose a life that is happy, grateful and loving.
Betty Lue

This is my life and I do it with joy and love!

Do It Anyway

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered.  
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.  
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies.  Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you.  
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy it all overnight.  
Build anyway.  

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous.  
Be happy anyway.  

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow.  
Do good anyway.  

Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough.  
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.  

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God.  
It was never between you and them anyway.

Love is a Decision I Must Make

I choose for Love.
I make the decision to Love, only Love.
I forgive and Love anyone who forgets to Love.
I remember Love is what we’re here for.

I claim heaven on earth here in me. 
I choose a good life that inspires me everyday in everyway.
I create a life of Beauty, Goodness and Wholeness to be joyfully shared.
And so it is, I affirm and declare, I do the work with joy and gratitude.

Could it be, you really can have the life you want?
Those who choose and do what it takes have everything they want.
If we make our beds, watch our mouths and change our attitude, life works easily.
I learned without any resistance to take care of my home, my words and my mind.

It is never too late to learn.
·     Never too late to change your life.
·     Never too late to change our words and our work ethic.
·     Never too late to have the life we want?

Yes, it requires committed focus, practice and willingness to do whatever it takes.
When we are willing, we can have what we want with all our heart and mind.
It requires clearing and cleaning every thought, word or behavior that interferes.
It requires a steadfast daily practice of what is true and good and healthy.
It requires letting go of the stories and disappointment, wishing and hoping.

It seems we are in a time of a quick fixes and short term gratification.
False Belief: A pill, a prayer, a person, a wish, a class, a book will give us what we want.

Where is the work we need to do? 
Where is the intention for the Highest Good?
Where is the research, the learning, cleaning up mistakes and doing the daily work required?

It seems we are in the age of disposing anything we no longer want.
Easy come, easy go.
If it costs nothing, it must not be valuable.
If it is given to us without working for it, it must not be of real significance.
If things break or get lost, someone will replace them.
If we do not take care of what we have, we can just go get more.

A child explored our home this week and said, “You must be rich.”  
I replied, We are rich in Love and Gratitude.”
We take good care of everything we have and so it lasts.  
We use what we have and make it work for us.
We give what we no longer use to others who have need.  
We keep our home clean and orderly and beautiful.
You can do it too, when you love your self and your life.”

If something is of value to you, be grateful.
Take good care of it while it serves you.
What you serve well, will serve you well.
When you value someone, love and serve them well.

The key may be to not take anything we have for granted.
Honor and respect everything you have.
Take care of everything and make it whole and holy.
If you cannot care well for someone or something, let it go to someone who will care for it well.
Allow all things to be loved and used for Good, by sharing them with someone who will.

Create your life, as if every relationship matters.
Create your home, as if everything your have has value to you.
Create your words, as if everything you say is teaching everyone everywhere.
Create your choices, as if everything you do is literally creating the world you live in.
Because it is!!!

Your life matters.
You are making a difference.
Make it positive, helpful and inspiring.
Betty Lue


There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer;
No disease that enough love will not heal;
No door that enough love will not open;
No gulf that enough love will not bridge;
No wall that enough love will not throw down;
No sin that enough love will not redeem.

 It makes no difference 
  how deeply seated may be the trouble,
How hopeless the outlook,
How muddled the tangle,
How great the mistake. 
A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.

 If only you could love enough, you would be the happiest 
and most powerful being in the world.

Does Anybody Really Care?

I care about taking good care of myself and all my relationships.
I care about taking good care of my home, my workplace, my community and the earth.
I care about speaking and behaving with respect and kindness all the time.
I care about being the best example of conscious living that I know.

Are there values we need to live?
Are there principles to live by?
Are there ethics and mores being learned in school?
Do our leaders, teachers, health providers care?

More importantly, do you care?
What matters to you?
Do your friends and family know you care?
Does anyone really know what you care about?

When people don’t care, they don’t pay attention.
When people don’t care, they don’t show up.
When people don’t care, they don’t share their truth.
When people don’t care, they experience despair, disease and die.

When we don’t care, everything goes to pot. (literally ad figuratively.)
When we don’t care, our children don’t care.
When we don’t care, others copy our example.
When we don’t care, we allow families, jobs, finances and health to fall apart.

When no one cares, we deplete our resources.
When no one cares, we live meaningless lives.
When no one cares, people harm themselves and each other.
When no one cares, we destroy what we have.

Do you care about you, your health, happiness, well-being?
Do you care about what you eat and how it energizes your body?
Do you care about how you live, the cleanliness of your home and care?
Do you care about the things you have, their maintenance and usefulness?

Do you care about your influence on others?
Do you care about how you spend your time and money?
Do you care about what you say and how you behave?
Do you care about your self image and reputation?

Do you care about the world you live in?
Do you care about the resources you use?
Do you care about the food you eat, the killing, pesticides and toxic waste?
Do you care about the trees and skies and seas?

Will we care when it is too late?
Will we care when no one cares for us?
Will we care all is gone or lost or depleted?
Will we care when no one cares for each other?

I care about You and me and Us!
I care about our children.
I care about the earth.
I care about reminding us all to care.

These Loving Reminders, written every morning, as part of my spiritual practice, are sent around the world to thousands since January 1999. I write them from my inner listening, with my Love and Peace.
I care about each one of you, deeply, profoundly, steadfastly, always and forever.
Love never quits. 
Love never dies.
Love prevails through all times.
I trust in Love, the “God” Forces that creates through me, as me.
I trust in the Love, the Goodness, that lives and has its Being in You!
I trust in the Power and Presence of Love that will always Be.
Let us together remember this Love.
Loving you, 
Betty Lue

Origin of Inner Listening

In 1976 it was suggested I sit and do nothing for just five minutes daily by a spiritual mentor/teacher.  I chose 5AM in the morning and immediately saw/felt and heard a vision of a Home of Infinite Love available to all people.  Over the years,  I have co-created many such Centers and Homes with the guidance of Spirit within. The next morning I brought a pad of paper and a pen to sit, and as I was simply breathing, I knew words were coming into my mind and I wrote them down.  When I later read them, I saw they had great spiritual meaning.  As an innocent, trusting and ‘True Believer’, I then quieted myself every morning and began to follow what I heard within.  My life became fun, safe, easy and miraculous in so many ways.  I learned, forgave and grew spiritually daily from every relationships.  This is was the origin of what I call “inner listening” and have taught to hundreds of willing learners over the last 30 years.

The Origin of emailed Loving Reminders
In the winter of 1998, having just moved back to the Bay Area in California, I asked Spirit within what was my purpose and calling.  I was invited to sit at the computer and write down my daily inner listening and send it to those who requested it of me.  Since Dec, 1998 I have  sat at my keyboard, everyday to write exactly what Spirit within guides.  I do not edit, correct spelling and embellish what I hear.  I simply send what is given to me to share with the now thousands around the world.
This is my inner listening given to all who choose to receive them.  Often it gives people what they need, practical spiritual and inspiring reminders, so they need not spend money on  hours of therapy or endless seeking for spiritual answers.  They seem to awaken and remind individuals who are willing and ready to change their lives for the Good of All.  I also have put many of the reminders into three little books, Loving Reminders, Peaceful Reminders and Relationship Reminders.  There are two other books waiting to be published, Healing and Healthy Reminders.  It is my joy to contribute to the healing and awakening of my spiritual family, all humanity.

May be all be benefited and blessed by every good and kind intention of everyone everywhere.
Blessed be. Betty Lue  “True B’Lue”

Remember: The blessings already are and we are now awakening to enjoy them.

Welcome Love in Your Life!

I release my fear of love and being loved.
Loving and being loved is safe, fun and easy.
I now recognize and clear all blocks to giving and receiving Love.
Love opens the way to inner peace, happiness, health and prosperity. 

Love is about enjoying life.
Love is not about buying things to enjoy.

Love is about sharing the Happiness in you.
Love is not about finding someone to make you happy.

Love is about creating beauty around you.
Love is not about getting someone to value your beauty!

Love is about remembering everyone is worth of love.
Love is not about finding the one who attracts you.

Love is about contributing the best you have.
Love is not about getting better and better stuff.

Love is about waking up each day glad to be alive.
Love is not about hoping everything goes OK today.

Love is about giving thanks for the chance to give what you receive.
Love is not about seeing what you get before you share anything.

Love is about using your time, money and resources for good purposes.
Love is not about depleting your time and money for worldly stuff.

Love is about realizing today is the best day of your life.
Love is not about hoping you will have a good. day

Love is about making a difference in the life of all you encounter.
Love is not about trying to get someone to make your day special.

Love is about going to sleep each night feeling happy, fulfilled and in love.
Love is not about dragging your self to bed exhausted, fearful and wishing you had more.

Love is about recognizing you are changing your world one person at a time.
Love is not about wondering if you will ever have someone special in your life.

Love is about sharing a smile, an appreciation, a gift, a creation, an affirmation with love.
Love is not about sharing your pain, displeasure, neediness and negativity to create connection.

Love is about always giving, sharing, caring and do what is fair for one and all.
Love is not about getting, needing, resisting, avoiding or withholding from anyone.

You see Love is natural to those who trust.
Love is the Gift we bring to those who are afraid.
Love is the Chance we have to awaken the sleeping.
Love is the Choice we make when we decide to enjoy life.
Love is the Hope that transforms the lives of the discouraged.
Love is the Trust we have in the unlimited supply.
Love is the Faith there is good always in loving.
Love is Reliance on the Power of Love within.

Let’s Awaken to the Love We Are.
Loving You always, 
Betty Lue

Our Greatest Fear May Be Love!!

Love is freedom and Trust.
Love is letting go of fear.
Love is trusting and choosing the Highest Good.
Love is letting life be as it is.

Are you afraid to Love?
Are you careful about being loving?
Are you cautious about being loved?
Have you learned to love only special ones?

It would appear we have it backwards.
We seem to fear (distrust) almost everyone.
We seem to love only special ones.
We seem to become afraid to lose their love.

If Love is natural, why do we need it?
If we are created as Love, why don’t we be it?
If we are here to Love, what keeps us from sharing it?
If our power and purpose is Love, why do we limit it?

We seem to have learned that love hurts.
And really Love heals.
We seem to believe we lose ourselves in Love.
Really Love is how we find ourselves.

We may have learned to let someone love us, is to allow them to control us.
We may have experienced that Love is fickle and depends on someone’s mood.
We may believe we need to earn love by giving what we may not have.
We may distrust our love will ever be enough to be received and appreciated.

The many definitions and ideas and images of Love have distorted our beliefs.
Whatever we believe tends to be what we seek and create for our selves.
The Love we experience is a product of our thoughts, words and behavior.
The Love we know is often distorted by the stories we have heart and told.

When we know unconditional Love, we know the unlimited, inclusive and creative power of Love.
Love reveals the need for Love and heals by loving.
Love opens the door to safety and trust and gives respite and peace.
Love is the space of remembering and awakening to the Love within>

Love is the place of renewal and new beginnings.
Love offers the natural forgiving essence of learning and giving.
Love is coming home to one’s authentic Self .  
Love is creating all that is good and whole and beautiful.

Love is the space of freedom and trust.
Love is the freedom to choose, to create, to discover.
Love is the trust that all things work together for Good.
Love is the way we live and give with gratitude.

Loving ourselves invites us to learn from every encounter.
Loving ourselves encourages us to trust our inner voice.
Loving ourselves frees us to make the best choice for ourselves.
Loving ourselves opens us to create the best life we know.

While we cannot change, fix or make another be what we want, we can influence ourselves.
While we cannot count on others being, choosing, feeling what we want, we can free them.
While we cannot shape others to choose to be with us, we can love them enough to let them go.
While we cannot make anyone love us, we can let go of our attachment and neediness.

Love may be confusing .
Love may be amusing.
Love may be fearful
Love may be tearful.
But when you love with trust and freedom, it is clear and free with no attachment to specialness.

Loving you in your remembering to Love, 
Betty Lue

What To Do

Useful Affirmations:
I no longer complain or tell discouraging stories. 
I choose to always and only share what is positive, creative and inspiring.
I use words wisely to create exactly what I want or something better.
I immediately erase, delete, forgive and release all that is not good for me.

Dear Betty Lue, “What do I do?
Life is not what I want it to be.
It seems unhappiness is my reality.
How do I create a life that is really good and true?
I want to live and give what is good for me.”

To All of us: 
“The most simple response is:
Every negative thought creates. (Just as much as every positive thought creates.)
When we express anything negative, it creates what we express.
When we are as powerful and strong in our expressions as we truly are, every word will manifest quickly and strongly.”

The choice is to live with what our words say is true……..
Or choose to speak what we want to be true. ( Positive Affirmations about everything.)
It is essential that we stop talking about what seems to be our reality.
Use our thoughts, words and behavior to create a new reality.

It seems difficult as long as we say and think it is “hard”.
It seems impossible, when we believe it is.
It seems like our fate, when we believe in fate.
But when we contemplate living in the now, everything is open, possible and easy.

A change of mind changes our words.
A change of words changes our feelings.
A change of feelings changes our behavior.
A change of words, feelings and behavior changes our lives.

This is a totally inside job.
No one can do it for us.
Life will relentlessly give us what we believe and say is true. 
We must undo any and all thinking, speaking and behaving in negative self defeating ways.

I love you and believe you can do what seems to be endless work.
And it is.  For you are clearing the negatives of humanity for all time.
It is only through eliminating all negatives that we achieve what is beautiful, good and whole for all..

Betty Lue

The power of our thoughts and words is clear.
Whether or not we take responsibility for our creations is dubious.
When we are willing to be responsible, we begin to realize that our negatives cancel positives.
Our past stories create the same stories in our future.
Our focus on fear and doubt can neutralize the power of love and certainty.
We are here to clean up every mess, as we confess our errors to ourselves and others.
Everything outside is a product of what is inside.
We need to create only goodness, beauty and wholeness with our thoughts, words and deeds.

We are learning together how to do better.
Bless us all everyone, Betty Lue
