Gift!


Affirmations:
I give the best I have and all is given unto me.
I learn from what I receive how to give better.
I am the real gift as I give the Love I am.
Life is for giving and I Am the Gift!


Tis a Gift to be Given.
Tis a Gift to be Giving.
Tis a Gift to be Receiving.
Tis a Gift to simply Be!

Everything is Gift!

When we come from Gratitude, everything is Gift!
Whether giving or receiving, everything is a gift.
Whether we judge good or bad, everything can be useful.
Whether right or wrong, all we give and receive can be helpful.

We learn to judge to discern and discriminate.
We value judging as a way to tell what is good for us.
We throw away what we can no longer use.
We hang on and save what we judge to be useful and helpful.

As we exercise our own discernment, we strengthen our beliefs.
As we use our judging mind, we see what we treasure and what we discard.
We are learning with all the gifts of life to be at choice.
We are deciding what we want to be and have and do.

Yes, every relationship provides information and education.
Every encounter offers opportunities to stay and speak or not.
Every word we offer can be used as lessons to be learned.
Every interaction is a way of projecting or defending.

We each and all are giving and receiving.
In silence or with words we have gifts we can receive.
With kindness or unkindness we learn how and what we receive.
There are many facets of learning with everything given and received.

Some throw away what is unwanted and unkind.
Some learn from what they receive what is good for them.
Some learn how to transform unkindness into healing.
Some earn an opportunity to give themselves the experience.

Many make up their mind about good and bad gifts.
Some are curious and want to look inside and learn more.
Some immediately defend, reject and avoid what seems noxious.
A few are curious about what is being asked to be given in return.

It is a gift to keep it simple.
It is a gift to give only what we want to receive.
It is a gift to learn from both giving and receiving.
It is a gift to give consciously.

Thanks for giving always and only the best you have.
Thanks for remembering to always love you first.
Thanks for returning to the sender what is helpful and good for them.
Loving you and me in giving and receiving,
Betty Lue

Here I AM


Affirmations:
I am here ever loving you.
I am here free to be and see All I Am.
I am living naturally by being in the Now.
I am giving openly as I am remembering how.


Here I Am.

Where are You?
What are you doing?
Are Your dreams coming true?
How are we living in this world together?

If you were happy everyday, would you share your happiness with others?
If you were in love with your life, would you gladly give your love to all?
If you could see the beauty in reality, would you dance with one and all?
If you could trust and be free, would you live your life in integrity?

We are free, you and me.
We are here to fully be, and enjoy what we have.
We are gifts of Goodness, mercy and loving kindness.
Each one of us can share the Blessings we have.

The restrictions, rules and limitations we have placed upon ourselves.
We can take this time to create and enjoy or complain and victimize ourselves.
We can set ourselves free by recognizing who and where and how we want to be.
Begin right now to ask yourself and write down what you hear.

We have found our right place when we delight in being right here and right now.
When there are moments of frustration at what was or anticipation at what will be, we are not here.
When we long for something better, we can choose again for what already is.
When we wish it had not been, we waste our energies of regret and sorrow for what no longer exists.

Time is an illusion of our creative minds.
Time offers us choices within which to choose what we seek to find.
Time comes and goes as a silent friend making sure we see the beginning and the end.
When there is no time, we see we are always in the same place, right here and now.

Make this moment what you seek to have and be.
Make this time the way you see yourself as happy and as free.
Make this now a time of good and gratitude for what is.
Make this breath a quiet place to love and live as friends.

We are here to find this place of peace
We have come to live in love.
We have joined with all as one.
We are here to see how far we all have come.

Wakeup and see this is where you started.
Awake we know we have always been just as we are now.
With no sleep still in our eyes and brain, we can feel our true heart.
Alas with the sun lighting our way, we realize we have never been apart.

The story and song goes on and on, but always is the same.
We came to join in Love as One, and return to One again.

I am loving you no matter what we claim.

What Is Just Right?


Affirmations:
I want to feel happy and at peace with myself.
I choose to satisfy my real needs and wants.
I am grateful I give myself exactly what is right and best for me.
I love myself for living with moderation in all things.


Too Much for You?

Have you every found yourself uncomfortable with not knowing what is “right” for you
?
Does it seem like “When it rains, it pours”?
Are you caught wanting more but not know if it will be too much?
Moderation is the ‘Goldilocks’ solution.

In all things consider moderation.
There is no need to binge on anything.
Trying to always get more is a sign we feel unsatisfied.
When what we are receiving never seems enough, we probably are not receiving what is of value.

What we value satisfies us.
What is healthy will fulfill us in small doses.
What we keep wanting more, it is always the “wrong” solution.
We need to choose what is simply right and true and healthy for us.

The absence of self love shows up with addictions and excessive cravings.
Excess shopping, eating, gambling, drinking, TV, etc comes from being addicted.
What we really need is deeper than all the habits we may choose.
What we give to ourselves in excess is our desire to feed a deeper need.

Take time to ask, “What does this do for me?”
Give yourself credit for wanting to understand feeling “It is not enough.”
When we have too little, we want more.
When we have too much, we want less.

Too much time on your phone talking and texting?
Too much time shopping and feeling guilty about the debt?
Too much alcohol, pills, smoking and other numbing agents?
Too much gossip, judgment and negative stories?

Anything can become too much.
When you find yourself sick of over doing, stop and ask “What do I really need?”
You may have learned to seek short term gratification.
You may want to just stop the introspection before it hurts.

When you are obsessed with one problem, need or situation, begin to write.
Write what you want, without censoring your answers.  “I want …….”
Make sure you write and think, “I want……
Most people never allow themselves to want what they really want.

How do you want to feel?
Who do you want to be?
What do you want to have?
What do you want to give?

Your real wants will lead you to where you have denied yourself.
Your underlying wants will tell you what you think is missing.
You secret wants will show you where you need to go, do and have next.
Begin to vision and believe, trust and plan what you want for yourself.

I totally appreciate you for listening to and honoring the REAL YOU!

Need Something Positive?


Affirmations:
I vow to always remember Love.
I choose to forgive and return to Love.
I live my life in a way I would want to live forever.
I give my very best to everyone and teach love to everyone.


Need Something Good?

Are there too many reminders of what is not working?
Are you caught in a war of judgments, both good and bad?
Is there too much pain and suffering, violence and hurt?
Are you dealing with negativity at home and work?

What do you do?
How do you respond?
Do you avoid and shut down?
Do you confront and stand up?

Maybe there is a better way.
Maybe you need to take care of you first.
Maybe you must first love yourself.
Now is the time to remind you of everything good, whole and beautiful within you.

Take a look at how you feel about yourself and your life.
Take note of all the high points, times when you felt happy, confident and successful.
Forgive all the times you felt unhappy, scared and unsuccessful.
Be willing to see what you learned from both high points and low points.

Make a comprehensive list of all the good points you value in yourself and your life.
Write and say “I appreciate you ……. For ………….”
Take credit for all the good choices you have made.
Value how much you have learned from your mistakes.

No need to belabor your errors or ignorance.
Stand up and learn from everything with gratitude.
Be willing to quickly and easily learn from every mistaken choice.
Life is for learning and you are an open and willing student, a fast learner.

Start seeing yourself for who you are.
Give yourself credit for all you have created.
Value every good deed and responsible interaction.
Notice  and applaud what works for you!

Where you still feel limited, little or lacking, write it all down and cross it off with “NOT TRUE!”
Write down everyway you feel unlimited, abundant, generous, kind, helpful and honest.
Highlight all Good with Full ownership.
“I have all Good within me and I share it freely with everyone. “

Begin to see goodness, beauty and wholeness everywhere.
Start affirming what is right and true and loving.
Learn to model excellence, enthusiasm and encouragement.
The world needs you and so do I!

You see…..I know you!
Even when you forget, I see your beauty goodness and wholeness.
I affirm what is right and true and loving within you.
I trust together we will model excellence, enthusiasm and encouragement.

The world needs us.
Together we make a mighty difference.

Loving you,
Betty Lue

Listening?


Affirmations:
I listen within and say and do what I know to be true.
I trust in my inner voice that guides me to teach only love.
I listen first and always respond with what is true and whole and loving.
I give love in the way that is most easily received.


Is Anyone Listening?

Strange things are happening everyday.
Children are crying from lack of love.
Elders are sitting alone in the dark.
People are yelling and hurting each other.

Is anyone listening?
Are we so conditioned to pain, we are numb?
Have we gone to sleep on what is wrong?
Are we hoping someone else will fix it for us?

Plenty of wine makes the pain tolerable.
Turn up the music and you cannot hear the cries.
Play enough games and watch more TV and you will not see.
Just walk away and hope and pray it goes away.

Who is there for you?
Who it there for them?
Who is your teacher, helper and friend?
Where do you go to listen and hear?

Can you help someone?
A batch of cookies to a college student.
A thank you note from someone who cares.
A smile and a hug to the elder who is alone.

Listen inside and see what gives inside you.
Do you remember what it feels like to really give from the heart?
Do you hear the voice of innocence asking for simple kindness and love?
Do you know how to respond when you see an unfulfilled need?

Are you caught in comfort and greed, forgetting to give?
Are you afraid to give from worry about the cost to you?
Is it scary to care and share when you see so many needs?
Are you willing to risk a little time and energy, resources and love?

When I listen to you, I know I can make a difference.
When I listen to me, I know there is more to do.
When I listen to our world, I see how we must respond.
When I listen to God and Goodness within, “right” living everyday is key.

When I am quiet and ask: “What Can I Do?”, I know what is mine to be and do and give.
When I listen within to my heart’s desire, It is “Love  and Serve Everyone Well”
When I listen to the Earth, she tells me to “Appreciate all I have and be a good steward.”
When I listen to you, “
I know You, I hear You, I simply Love You!”

Listen and you will know what is Yours to do.
Each one of us can do something.
One drop in the bucket may save a life.
Your little part may give your life back with abundance and joy the reward
!

I love you for living and giving with Love.
