Seek the Good!


Affirmations:
I know I am Good, so I choose only Goodness.
I see in you what is also within me.
When I release what is not true, I see only the Good in me and in you.
I love because it works.


Seek the Good!

See no evil.
Hear no evil.
Speak no evil.
And you will know no evil.

See the Good.
Listen for the Good.
Tell stories of Good news.
And you will always believe in the Good in You!

What you believe you are, you will give to others.
What you see in others, comes from the beliefs in you.
What you listen to in others, comes from what you hear within.
What you believe in and tell comes from what you want to be.

We are all givers of either Goodness or Doom.
We think, feel and repeat stories of Peace or Drama.
We are here creating our experiences with what we say repeatedly.
Listen to your own gifts of Love or fear.

All you give to others, you are giving to yourself.
Whether ill will or good will, what you give is given to you.
Giving and receiving are the same.
Give Goodness and you receive Goodness in the Giving.

Forgive the stories being told of end times and hate, unless you want them to be.
Erase histories of unconsciousness and choose what you really want to see.
Delete words of negativity and choose works for inspiration and faith.
Give your world and yourself a chance to feel Goodness and Grace.

What you focus on, you continue to create.
When you want to build walls of defense and fear, focus on what is wrong.
When you want to build avenues of openness and love, focus on what is right.
We can continue what we have with gratitude and choose again with forgiveness and love.

It takes so little to turn our life around.
Do you look up to possibilities or look down to the ground?
You can plant seeds of goodness, kindness and love.
You can bury the garbage talk, put downs and undo the pain.

Look to the infinite possibilities within you and all that is.
Nurture and nourish wondrous visions of contribution, participation and appreciation.
Be willing and open to receive all you desire and deserve.
Learn to let go of lack, limitation and ill will.

What you seek is what you get.
Live your life with no regret.
Seek only Goodness and watch it grow.
See what you value and love and your will know IT IS YOURS!

Love works all the time.

Forgiving?


Affirmations:
I know who I can be when I set myself free.
I easily erase the limiting stories of the past.
I quickly free myself to fully be my true self.
Letting go of what is not is fun, safe and easy.


Have You Really Forgiven?

Forgiveness is the key to happiness.
Forgiveness offers inner peace.
Forgiveness heals mind and body.
Forgiveness is a gift to ourselves.

Whatever is not Love is always a call for Love.
Forgiveness reminds us to give Love.
When we have forgiven we experience no harm or ill will.
When we forgive we set ourselves free to love again.

Forgiveness allows us to live in the present.
Forgiveness erases the past and sets us free.
Forgiveness returns us to our natural state of Love.
Forgiveness sees and believes in healing ourselves first.

Pause and look within.
This is where we must begin.
Take time to clear all pain and fear and doubt.
See really what you whole life is about.

Are you not here to return to happiness and peace?
Are you not here to see that Love is always within reach?
Are you not here to join with those who Love?
You are the alpha and the omega, in the circle of your Life.

What you think and feel and know will show up everyday.
When you are filled with the pain of the past, it will keep hurting you.
When you are lost in defending against what might happen, you continue to fear what might be.
What might be you bring into your reality with your thoughts and feelings and stories you tell.

Perhaps it is time to tell a different story that you bring into being.
When you learn your choose your own reality. You will tell yourself what you want to be.
To retell what you don’t want to be, your focus creates what you don't want to be.
When you talk about and share what you really want, you will bring it into your reality.

There is so much more than you we allow, because our history keeps on repeating itself.
When you give yourself a new story, one of vision and hope and trust, you will see it come into being.
When you learn to clean our the archived material,  you will have space to create with thoughts and words.
When you wash away the past, you will reach our and build a new life of goodness, wholeness and beauty.

You can forgive just by being willing.
You can begin again just by erasing.
You can start new by believing  you can.
You can close one book and begin another.

You are not stuck, powerless or lost.
You are ready to forgive and release, delete and erase.
Undo what is no longer true.
Begin again with the REAL and WHOLE YOU!

Loving you,
Betty Lue

Helping?


Affirmations:
I am in service to myself and others.
I am here to be truly helpful giving the best I know.
I am always available for the highest good of all.
Life is for giving and I am the gift I have to give.


How Can I Help?

How can I help you, if I don’t know how to help myself?
How can I help, when I don’t have the energy or time?
How can I help, if I don’t know what you want?
How can I help, if I am not listening to what you want?

Folks often try to help because they are fearful or worried.
Some people interfere in others’ lives because they think they are helping.
Some times folks just don’t know any other way to express their love.
Look to see your motive to be helpful and who it really is helping.

When not asked for help, are you interfering?
When help is not wanted, do you think you know best?
When you make others feel guilty, are you really being helpful?
When you expect appreciation or reciprocity, is your help really gift?

Consider how you want to be helped.
Ask if you like to be forced to receive.
Look at how you feel about advice.
When do you feel others are meddling or actually helping.

A barometer for your true intentions may be:
Do you expect appreciation for your help?
Do you feel offended if they decline your help?
Are you waiting for payback when you need help?

Help is not helpful when you give without asking permission.
Help is not helpful if you think you know better than they do.
Help is not helpful if you make them feel inadequate or incapable.
Help is not beneficial if you are doing it for your own needs.

Consider your best help is to see and affirm others doing well.
Consider being helpful is appreciating what people do for themselves.
Consider remembering to ask first: “How can I be helpful?”
Help yourself first, so you are strong and able to give the help that is wanted.

Teach people how to help themselves, so they become independent.
Setting an example is always the best teacher.
Show rather than tell other how to do what they want to learn.
Encourage and affirm everyone to be strong and capable, happy and free.

Helpfulness is true service to others when you give what is valued and affirming to others.
See below the differences between “Helping, Fixing and Serving”

Here to be truly helpful as you serve yourself.

HELPING, FIXING, SERVING
--by Rachel Remen (May 29, 2000)

Service is not the same as helping.
Helping is based on inequality, it's not a relationship between equals. When you help, you use your own strength to help someone with less strength. It's a one up, one down relationship, and people feel this inequality. When we help, we may inadvertently take away more than we give, diminishing the person's sense of self-worth and self-esteem.
Now, when I help I am very aware of my own strength, but we don't serve with our strength, we serve with ourselves. We draw from all our experiences: our wounds serve, our limitations serve, even our darkness serves. The wholeness in us serves the wholeness in the other, and the wholeness in life. Helping incurs debt: when you help someone, they owe you. But service is mutual. When I help I have a feeling of satisfaction, but when I serve I have a feeling of gratitude.
Serving is also different from fixing. We fix broken pipes, we don't fix people. When I set about fixing another person, it's because I see them as broken. Fixing is a form of judgment that separates us from one another; it creates a distance.

So, fundamentally, helping, fixing and serving are ways of seeing life. When you help, you see life as weak; when you fix, you see life as broken; and when you serve, you see life as whole.
When we serve in this way, we understand that this person's suffering is also my suffering, that their joy is also my joy and then the impulse to serve arises naturally - our natural wisdom and compassion presents itself quite simply. A server knows that they're being used and has the willingness to be used in the service of something greater.
We may help or fix many things in our lives, but when we serve, we are always in the service of wholeness.

Stuck, Stagnant or Simply Out of Energy?


Affirmations:
I give myself exactly what I need when I need it.
I trust my choices and always choose the best for me.
I know what I want and I go for it.
What is best for me is always best for others.


When You Run Out of Options, Then What?

What do you do, when there seems to be no options?
Are you awake and aware of where you are?
Do you notice when you are depressed or out of options?
Are you willing to relax and rest or get up and get going?

Sometimes we just need to pause and take inventory.
Sometimes we need to rest and return to our natural state.
Sometimes we need to ask for help, inner and outer.
Sometimes we need to get up and get going again.

Life can be our energizer and inspiration.
We may need to let go of everything that burdens us.
We may need to wash away the past and begin brand new.
We might just want to take a vacation for what has been to see what can be.

Look within at what may be holding you back.
Are there judgments, fears, resentment or guilt?
Do you need to forgive and relinquish the past?
Pause, let go and flush.

Look outside and see what is not working.
Give yourself time to undo what no longer serves you.
Release the habits and addictions that delay or distract you.
Be willing to give yourself a new playing field.

Take inventory of what works and what doesn’t work.
Gracefully and gratefully let go of everything that is not good for you.
Release and bless relationships that limit, depress or exhaust you.
Stop doing what drains you and choose what inspires you.

Duties and obligations, needed jobs and functions can be transformed.
You can change your mind about almost anything.
If you don’t enjoy it, choose to appreciate all you do.
Find what you value about your service to others and yourself.

Where you give value, you will receive value.
What you appreciate, you will receive appreciation.
Where you give generously with joy, you will experience more joy.
You really will receive the energy and attitude which you give.

When stuck or stagnant, ask: “What do I need?”
When tired or fed up, ask yourself and listen to your own inner response.
When you feel done with people and the world of stuff, take time to do as you are guided within.
You actually have the answers within you when you choose to honor what you hear inside.

Trusting you to take impeccable care of you!
