Choose Peace

I choose my thoughts, feelings and behaviors.
I choose peaceful responses to have more peace.
I live in a peaceful home and work place.
I choose no harm with my thoughts, words or choices.

Choose Peace

If you want Peace, Choose Peace.
If you want Quiet, Be still.
If you want Love, Be Love.
If you want Fun, Safe and Easy, Be Happy, Loving and Peaceful.

Are we ready to understand we create our own experience?
Do we know how we affect others and how they relate to us?
Can we see the ways we teach others to be in our presence?
Perhaps now we can align with our own choice and make it so.

What do you believe about the life you have chosen?
Have you enjoyed conflict and arguing?
Do you like noisy chaotic experiences?
Are you a drama-lover and creator?

Look around you.
What do you see?
What do you hear?
How do you react?

You can change it.
You can see beauty.
You can hear quiet.
You can choose peace.

Peace is an option.
Your mind can seek peace.
Your emotions can be calmed.
Your breathing can be even and quiet.

Some fear peace will bring lethargy.
Some avoid peace and what may happen.
Some define peace as lifeless and empty.
Some recognize peace is healing and renewing.

From the depths of you there is peace.
In the quiet there are answers.
Within the stillness there is wisdom.
Listen within and know you are love.

I can choose peace instead of pain, chaos and conflict.
I choose peace.
I find great love, freedom and wisdom in Peace. 
My single goal is the Peace of God (Goodness).

I value the Good in us all.

Fun, Safe And Easy!

I love to have fun and be happy.
I am at peace when I live safely.
I relax when life flows with ease.
I choose a fun, safe and easy life.

Fun, Safe and Easy Living

The freeway is fun, safe and easy, if you are paying attention.
Life is fun, safe and easy if you are paying attention.
If you are staying on path and on purpose, life is fun, safe and easy.
If you are following your inner guidance system, your life will be better than you imagine.

When there are bumps or obstacles, slow down and pay more attention.
Seek out the safe and easy way.
Trust what your GPS is showing you
Avoid the pitfalls and danger zones.
When you get off track and things become difficult, stop and ask if there is an easier way.
When you lose your trust and confidence, stop and ask for direction.
If you feel in a dangerous situation, seek protection and provision.
We are here to learn to take care of ourselves by what is around us.

The sights and sounds and experiences are showing us.
We can see what works best.
We have warning signs.
With attention, we can see what is fun, safe and easy.

If we want challenge, danger and serious adventures, we can have those as well.
It we are unwilling to change our choices, we can continue to have obstacles.
We can continue to do life our own way and hope for a different result.
But if we want a different outcome, we must learn and choose again.

Are you listening within?
Do you want an easier life?
Are you willing to undo what is not good for you?
Can you learn to let go?

If you do not know it can be better, you might do things the hard way.
If you do not want things to change, you may continue with the same.
If you prefer the challenge and difficulty, you may see the tough choices.
If you have made up your mind to do it your own way, you may never learn.

I suggest you let love guide you.
I know joy can light your way.
I see peace as the ideal outcome.
You can choose what you want.

You can make your life easier.
You can have lots more fun.
You can move in safe ways.
You deserve to have what you want.

Let’s choose wisely and well.
Loving you,
Betty Lue

Prepared for Life

I let love lead the way.
I teach and lead by example.
I live my life as though all thought, words and activities matter.
I know who I am make a positive difference.

Are Kids and Youth Prepared for Life?

Are you prepared to be an adult?
Are you prepared to take care of yourself?
Did you learn how to get a job and maintain a budget?
Are you aware of professional dress, behavior and work relationships?

Somehow it seems few know how to be mature and be responsible.
When parents and grandparent do not know, where will our young people learn?
When kids see and hear disaster, divorces bankruptcies, disease and depression, how will they know?
We must all learn and practice the basics to earn our kids respect and admiration.

Consider the basics and see if you know any better.
When we know better, we can do better.
When our life is not working, we need to learn better.
When we are hiding our mistakes, we forget to get help to improve.

Do you learn from every adversity and challenge?
Are you open to letting someone teach you a better way?
Do you get frustrated or depressed by how hard life seems to be?
Are you willing to do the work to be happy and successful?

Are you a good role model from which others can learn?
Do you appreciate yourself for how hard you work and do better everyday?
Are you an effective parent, partner, employee and friend?
Do you improve your relationships with what you have learned from others?

Is your reaction to problems or people to get angry, upset, hurt, afraid?
Are you willing to learn how to be peaceful, respectful, helpful and kind?
Are you ready to take care of yourself and your family and/or children?
This is our time to step up and do the right thing to live the best way.

Below are some recommendations to teach our youth before they leave home.
Further down are some Recommendations for Adult to practice.
Is it possible that as a society we have become dependent on elders, government, welfare and lawsuits?
Are we ready to take back the power to become independent, hard-working, courageous and prosperous?

We can show our children how to work all day without complaining.
We can demonstrate that we prioritize our family first and put down the technology.
We are resources for learning cooking, cleaning, helping, learning, healing and having fun.
We can show up as the capable, generous and loveable people we are.

We can apologize for our mistakes.
We can look forward to a positive future.
We can be encouraging and resourceful in our parenting.
We can appreciate and enjoy our family life everyday.

We are the future in everyway we live today.
Let’s show up and pay attention to our real job.
We can make a difference in every relationship and situation.
We are here to love ourselves and our families and love life.

I am with you appreciating you and all you can do.

I listen within and I know.
I trust my inner guidance.
My inner knowing guides a fun, safe and easy life.
I encourage all to trust what we know from within.

How Do You Know?

We think we know if we hear it from parents.
We may believe what we read in books or on internet.
We may think we know because the people around us know the same.
We often know what our teachers tell us.

How do you know what is “true” for you?
How do you experiment to learn what is true?
How can you trust what you know or think you know?
How long does what you believe you know stay accurate?

Most of us have some intuition naturally
….Maybe all of us are born with an inner knowing??
Many are born with an inner voice that knows what will keep us safe and happy.
Maybe all of us are born with an inner sense of what is good for us.
Often children learn early to listen to their parents for their safety rules and how to please elders.

When we trust others with our guidance, we often stop paying attention to what “feels” right to us.
We learn to follow what others do and give up our natural inner knowing.
We learn to follow rules, society’s values and keep their peace by doing what others teach us to do.
Consider the possibility that there is an intuition you still have to guide you to know what is good.

Intuition can direct us to avoid harm.
Intuition can teach us who to trust and believe.
Intuition can show us what is best.
Intuition can give us information to share with others.

We usually listen to reason, logic and common practice.
We may lose our ability and trust in our inner listening.
We may abandon our own natural instincts and intuition.
We may abort plans to follow our inner guidance.

Perhaps it is time to stop thinking and start listening within.
We may notice when we “heard” what to do and denied it.
You can begin to develop you psychic, telepathic, or intuitive knowing.
You can practice and watch to see how accurate and helpful it will be.

Life is often simply a remembering or rediscovery of our own knowing.
Our life journey may be more fun, safe and easy when we listen within.
We may discover we can trust our own inner guidance more than others beliefs.
Often we have more accurate responses when we are open and willing to know.

Sit quietly in a special place to still mind and body.
Bring a pad of paper and pen to write down answers or guidance your hear.
Write down the questions or what you prefer to heal.
Wait and listen for whatever comes and write without censoring.

Our intuition will bring happiness, peace and wisdom for you.
Love, trust and freedom work.
Betty Lue

What Is Intuition?
Intuition is the ability to know something directly without analytic reasoning, bridging the gap between the conscious and non-conscious parts of our mind, and also between instinct and reason.
It is our “inner voice,” our gut feeling, that “little something” instinctual from within, which tells us how we feel beneath those layers of logic ... Sometimes it is referred to as gut feeling, sixth sense, innate wisdom, inner sense, instinct, inner voice or inner knowing.

When I listen to my inner guidance system, I often feel called to do or say something without understanding why.  Because I so trust in this inner knowing, I simply allow it to guide my life and the writing you see hear.
I often learn from what I share with you and others in counseling or teaching.
I let go of the need for proof. I trust that the knowing without knowing always gives me more good to share. 
It is from this feeling of openness and trust that I let go and am present with whatever I am given to do or say.

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

Summer Is Here!!

I love novelty and learning.
I enjoy the freedom and joy children bring.
I make myself happy with the changes I make.
I love creating happy possibilities for myself and others.

Summer Is Here

Temperatures in the 100’s.
Kids are out of school.
Lots of light time every AM and PM.
Time for vacations and fun.

What are you going to do?
Keep cool.
Do something new.
Take a trip or adventure somewhere.

We have two or more kids here every week.
  (Grandkids and friends 7-18 yrs old)
It is a time of novelty and shared experiences.
There is time for board games and fun.
Everyone needs a break from work, at home, school and job.

What you do is celebrate how good life is.
The more you share the good times, the better you feel.
The more you share the sad or scary times, the worse you feel.
So use your summer time together sharing what is awesome!

Make plans to go to the ocean, lake or creek somewhere.
Or if no transportation, have fun in the sprinkler or shower.
Find different kinds of rocks and see what colors show up in water.
Check out the variation of leaves and see how many you can discover.

Give yourself a new favorite name for the week or forever.
Write a short story and take pictures or make a movie your cell phone.
Mix and match clothes in crazy ways and enjoy experimenting.
Create a skit switching roles with adults and kids, boys and girls.

We all learn from one another, but we need to listen and observe.
Adults need to stop telling and start asking for kids ideas and advice.
Everyone can learn how to get along with no yelling or arguing.
Our relationship harmony and enjoyment are key to future success.

Summer can provide the best and most practical learning of all.
Having fun is essential to releasing stress.
Enjoying what you do is key to feeling grateful.
Changing your mind when you want better is key to creativity.

Summer is the opportunity to lose weight, gain a friend, learn a new language.
Summer is time to dream of your future, paint, draw, play some music, help someone.
Summer is your time, whether for one day or weekend or the whole summer breatk.
Summer need not be wasted in laziness and over sleeping or watching TV,

Use your time wisely and well.
Enjoying it always,
Betty Lue

Balancing Energies

Life is good and getting better day by day.
I choose to live my life well.
I am free and able to respond with conscious awareness everyday.
I honor my whole self with the Love and Good within me.

(Summer Solstice 9:24PM PDT)

Be Responsible for Your Energy

To be responsible means to respond with love.
Being responsible is freeing.
Being responsible feels safe.
Being responsible is paying attention.

It is our responsibility to take care of ourselves,
The responsible one is most conscious and conscientious.
Being responsible is doing what is best for all concerned.
Being responsible is balancing your energy.

If you are hot, cool off.
If you are upset, calm down.
If you are going to fast, slow down.
If you are going crazy, breathe deep and relax.

When you are over doing, pause and listen for a better way
If you are lethargic and bored, look around for what needs your attention.
Too much of anything is asking for less.
Too little is asking for more.

Notice what you notice.
Observe what is needed.
Respond with kind respect.
Tend to your own energy.

Especially during times of volatility, ensure your own peace.
Of course, when overwhelmed, seek and ask for reliable help.
When you find yourself in a situation you don’t want, leave. (even to the bathroom.)
Remember that you are responsible for your own choices.

Understand that your life is in your hands, so listen deeper to the highest guide.
Your own guidance system needs to get your attention.
Always choose for what is highest and best for all, especially you.
What is best for you will always bring happiness and inner peace.

You can choose today to walk away from unkind and disrespectful behaviors.
Today you can grow up and into the way you want to think and do and say.
You are the key to everything you seek for healing, learning, and choosing for Good.
Life is your gift and the mirror on which you can see what you need to clear and balance.

Make everyday the best day of your life.
When the light is bright, choose again for the best you know.
When you are awake and aware, begin where you are to clean up.
You can balance your energy with love today, because you are responsible and free.

Loving you,
Betty Lue

More Light!

I live with delight when I see what is.
I forgive and wash away thoughts and feelings that block the light.
I choose to live with inspiration, joy and gratitude.
Love and Light guide my way in all things.
Light!  Light!  More Light!

Light is energy.
Light is warmth.
Light is vision.
The more you see, the better.

Open to Light!
Receive the Light!
Enjoy the Light!
Be the Light!

When we can see what is, we can clear and make better.
When we have more light, we shine away what is dark.
When we feel more light, we can let go of the heaviness.
When we are more light, we can share the Good we have.

With our eyes open, we begin to see what in under the chaos and clutter.
When our mind is awake, we can see what is misperceived and needs Love.
When our emotions are free, we feel inspired, capable and happy to give our best.
When our body is filled with light, we recognize we are energized, healthy and alive.

The light comes when we forgive.
The light comes when we love.
The light comes when we bless.
The light comes when we are free.

The more we are grateful, the more we are filled with delight!
The more we enjoy, the more our happiness inspires others.
The more we clear fear, the more our light shines.
The more we let go, the more our love will show.

Consider living with delight.
Consider giving what is real.
Consider caring about everything and everyone.
Consider sharing the light within and all around you.

This is the time of greatest Light.
We can see all that blocks our sight.
As we clear the blocks we see, there is more to clear.
We are here to see what is beneath all the clutter we have accumulated.

Clear the physical clutter and junk.
Undo the emotional fear and resentment.
Release the thoughts of disaster, disease and despair.
Lift your being into the light of goodness, beauty and love.

Be the light and bring DeLight into your life.
Loving you,
Betty Lue

Yin and Yang

Happy Father’s Day
“Time to celebrate what is creative, expressive, inspiring and free.”
“Time to provide and protect what is nurturing, helpful and good.”
Summer Solstice
“Time to live in the Light with Delight”
“ Time to see what is not wanted and let it go easily.”

“Let us balance our lives and be grateful in peace.”
“Let us create the good and nurture it with Love.”

Balance Receptivity and Creativity!

 is the feminine, negative, dark, cool, receptive, quiet and still.
Yang is defined as masculine, positive, light, warmth, creative and expressive.
When there is an imbalance, many symptoms show up.
It is good for all of us to learn to be mindful, to balance our energy excesses and deficiency.

When there is great light, there is more energy.  (Summer Solstice)
We can use this energy to create or destroy.
We can pacify too much energy with more receptivity.
This may be a time to let go of what is not good or healthy.

When there is a need for rest, we need to quiet ourselves and be receptive.
We can use this time to be still and listen within.
We can calm our thoughts and soothe our emotions with gentleness and slowing down.
It is essential to become aware of what we need to balance our energy and our life.

All of us can be overly excited, anxious and stimulated.
All of us can be lethargic, depressed and bored with life.
When every we have an imbalance, we can change our behavior, thoughts and emotions.
There is a call for the right energy at the right time to live within our own needs and desires.

Consider the possibility that what we have labeled as mental illness, may be balanced by choice.
Perhaps we have relied too much on drugs without considering simply lifestyle change.
Changing our mind can change our life energy.
Choosing our way of thinking and feeling can bring balance.

What do you know is out of balance?
Where do you see you have chosen too much of a feeling?
What do you do to get in touch with what your need?
How do you reclaim your own natural cycle of work and rest, play and service, creativity and receptivity

Consider what you can change to benefit you.
Commit to make your life energy more harmonious.
Choose and notice how it feels.
If not best for you, simply let go and choose again.

Are you listening, before you react?
Are you honoring those who provide for you?
Are you still learning, enjoying, creating, valuing?
Do you live daily with love and light in your thoughts, words and activities?

This is your time to balance all that is within you to give and do and be.
Loving you endlessly,
Betty Lue

First reveal and then you can heal!

Recognizing Yin and Yang
Signs of Yin Deficiency (excess of Yang energy)
Anxiety, hyperactivity, frustration, overly controlling, feeling burnt out, anger, aggressiveness, feeling overly competitive, feeling overwhelmed and agitated, overly confident, inability to relax, and overly critical and judgmental. When we cut ourselves off from the Yin/feminine energy we lose our ability to fluidly move and adapt to our circumstances, be receptive to others, and connect with our creative inspiration.  Instead of feeling peaceful and rested throughout our day, we become rigid, agitated and overextended.  There is a feeling of continually needing to keep moving and keep doing.

Signs of Yang Deficiency (excess of Yin energy)
Depression, stagnation, feeling overwhelmed, tired, listless, hopeless, confused, submissive, feeling weak and lifeless, feelings of jealousy, obsessive compulsive thoughts, lack of confidence, and feelings of low self esteem. When we cut ourselves off from our masculine energy, we have a hard time creating the experiences that we want in the world.  We lose sight of our goals, lose inspiration to create the things that we want for ourselves, and can slip into depression and hopelessness.

Energize Your Life!

Love what you have and let it love you.
Enjoy each day with gratitude and appreciation.
Honor your whole Self but relinquishing what is not worthy.
Hold onto nothing and learn from everything.


Do you know how to energize your life?
Stop draining your energy!
Let go of people, place, things and habits that deplete your energy!
Allow life energy to flow through you without limitation or loss.

Do you have more than you can maintain with ease?
When you have more things than you can care for, you will lose energy.
When you have more projects than you can complete, you will be drained.
When you have more people than you can love well, you fill feel loss.

When you keep adding stuff, you simply add to your weight.
When you keep buying more clothes, you will add more burden.
When you keep emotional baggage, you will simply fill up with toxicity.
When you keep doing what doesn't bring lasting joy, you will drain yourself.

Life energy is your source.
Let go of whatever is not yours.
Let go of stuff that is not fulfilling.
Let go of responsibilities that are not loving.

We are here to have and hold what inspires, fulfills and serves.
We are here to enjoy the life we create and undo what no longer works.
We are here to fully and freely breathe in the beauty and relinquish the chaos.
We are here to trust in the letting go process to open the flow of Goodness.

Relinquish the worry, concerns and fears.
Trust in the power of Love and Forgiveness.
Let go of what is not yours and receive the blessings.
Easily clean the closets and storage of your mind, and feel the flow.

Stay light and filled with only the good.
If what you have doesn't love you daily, let it go.
Release what is heavy and breathe in delight.
You are here to create what is good, beautiful and happy.

Take a look at your thoughts and see what is depleting.
Notice how resentful, regret and fearful shut you down.
Observe how all the stuff waiting for you, overwhelms you.
Recognize how much space and time and energy are consumed with unfulfilling stuff.
Give yourself renewed energy by relinquishing what is unhealthy for you.

Life is your canvas on which you can paint chaos, clutter, and confusion.
White it out with clarity, choice and commitment to trust and freedom.
Open the doors and windows and invite in gratitude and delight.
Let go and feel the rush of love and goodness come into your body, mind and Spirit.

I Love loving you and freeing us all together with Joy.
Betty Lue

Doing and Being

Affirmations:  (Find what thoughts bring you peace and use them daily)
I am doing well.
I am happy Being Who I AM.
The more I am happy, the more I do happy things.
I feel grateful and stay in Love.

(Learn to use affirmations daily below)

How Are You Doing?

“How are doing?” is one way of greeting one another.
“How are you being?” Is perhaps more accurate to find the essence.
I am being happy today and I am doing well today.
When we are both happy and well, life feels on purpose.

Perhaps we need to be doing good things.
Perhaps we just need to get the job done.
Perhaps we are doing what is ours to do.
Perhaps doing is how our Being shows.

When we are happy, we do well.
When we do well, we also feel happy.
When life is good and we feel happy, all is well.
See what is true for you.

Happy feels good.
Our natural state is Happiness.
Our natural state is Love.
Our natural state is inner Peace.

What can you DO today to feel happy?
How can you Do what is yours today without complaint?
Are you willing to feel happy even if you are not doing so well?
Can you be at peace and love yourself even when you are not able to DO?

When living with disability or disease that limit your ability to do, can you still love?
When feeling discomfort in your body, are you at peace?
It is known that peace is healing to the body.
It can be see that those who are at peace continue to Love.

Recently I visited my brother who cannot DO because of Parkinson’s Disease in his body.
I know his body has pain and still he is blessing and loving as he is.
I can feel his Peace with what he experiences, because he is accepting.
Can we accept and find peace and even happiness with what is for us?

Doing well with what Is we can find peace.
Using what we have can bring happiness.
Enjoying what life offers is Good.
Recognizing and accepting offers no complaints.

Consider exchanging complaints for gratitude.
Consider choosing thoughts that bless rather than curse.
Consider feeling good rather than bad.
Consider doing what you can and value simply being here.

I appreciate choosing to be happy and doing good with what I have.
Always Loving what I do and feeling Good.
Betty Lue

How to Use Affirmations: 
Affirmations are used to clear unconscious programming that tends to guide our thoughts, feelings and behavior.
Writing, speaking and hearing us say the affirmation aloud clears the false beliefs through our sense of sight, sound and touch.
It is essential that we keep writing and saying the affirmations until there is no longer resistance to the limiting beliefs.
Affirmations are not to be used to develop a new belief, but only useful to clear false limiting programs.
Once there is quict, clarity, no resistance, we are complete.

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 times and listen for the resistant thought after each one.
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!!

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.
