Planting New Seeds for 2014

I plant seeds of joy and gratitude daily.
I choose the life I want and live it well.
I pull the weeds with clear intention and fertilize with gratitude.
My harvest is abundant because I do the work with joy.

Time to prepare the ground and plant new seeds for this year.
All the support and help and healing are here.
Start with fertile ground: open, willing, positive and clear.
Choose the best seed ideas and pictures of health and happiness.

Have you taken time to pull out the weeds of the past?
Have undone your beliefs that Good cannot last?
Have you meditated and contemplated on what you really want?
Have you done the work to set aside your fears to know what you really want to grow?

If you plant your worry along with your ideas, they only grow with limitation and problems.
If you plant past resentment, guilt and blame, your new seeds will not be healthy and whole.
If you have not cultivated the ground with inspiration, you may not harvest the good you seek.
For what you plant with thoughts you hold, positive and negative, will be brought forth.

It is essential that we forgive the past.
It is certain that we must clear our minds.
It is true we need to seek what we want to find.
We need to undo what we do not value.

What we think of, we will see and believe.
What we say, we will manifest and experience.
What we fear also becomes clear, because we think of it.
What we want to grow, must be what we seek to know and have and do.

Take the time to do the work.
What I really want to experience in 2014 is: (20 wants or more) Example below.
I want peace and harmony.
I want to think, speak and act with loving intention.
I want to know the good in me and see the good in you.

Take time to ask and answer:  Examples:
What do I need to clear to have what is for my highest Good?
Forgive the past.
Release my fears.
Stop doubting my self.

Write affirmations: ( Examples below.)
I know what I want and I go for it.
I forgive my doubts and fears.
I believe I can do anything I really want to do.
I now trust myself and free myself to have everything that is Good for me.

Today is the Chinese New Year;
Time to plant seeds for the Year of the Horse….of course!
(See Below some possibilities for the year)
I was born in the year of the horse.
“Animated, active, energetic and independent”

Smiling with love for you and me with all our eccentricities.
All good to balance humanity with all flavors, colors, types and beliefs.
If you loving diversity, you will love it all and see how perfect it all works.
Play your part, Live your truth, follow your belief and honor how you work best.

Loving us all, just the way we are.

Be Successful at Home and Work!

Success Seminar for Entrepreneurs  
This Saturday, Feb. 1 from 10-1PM at Unity Center for Inspired Living in Brentwood, CA 94513
Saturday, March 29 from 10-1PM in Hidden Valley Lake, CA 95467

I am successful in all I do.
I trust myself to learn from every experience.
Everything always works more exquisitely than I can plan.
Life works for me, because I do my work.
I love success and success loves me.

What does it take to be successful?
  • v Define what success really is for you.
  • v Clarify what you really love to be and do.
  • v Unlearn self-sabotaging thoughts and behaviors.
  • v Learn from every mistake without guilt or blame.
  • v Observe how others become successful without comparison or envy.
  • v Contribute, admire and appreciate others’ success.
  • v Give your best to everyone in every encounter, especially to yourself.
  • v Believe in yourself and what you do and make and give.
  • v Keep on giving and living with healthy thoughts, words and behaviors.
  • v Trust that success in not measured with money or approval.
  • v Notice inner measures of success: inner peace and trust, happiness and gratitude.

Some keep doing the same thing and expecting a different result.
Some try getting something for nothing and keep getting nothing.
Some believe that making excuses and blaming others will change results.
Some sabotage their own attempts by quitting too soon or getting stuck.

Failure is a learning experience.
Failing to learn from everything is the mistake too often made.
Allowing failures to disappoint, distract or distress us is a block to success.
Believing we have all the answers limits us in learning quickly and easily.

I learn from those who are open and willing to learn.
The more quickly we change our mistaken ways, the faster we experience success.
Children usually demonstrate the value of flexibility as they keep trying until they succeed.

I learn from those who are happy with their whole life success.
I learn from those who give more of what they love to give.
I learn from those who are inspired and inspiring.
I learn from those who never quit.
I learn from those who are always generous.
I learn from those who are happy and grateful.
I learn from those who seem to trust in good and bad times.
I learn from those who stop all criticism, judgment, guilt and blame.
I learn from those who live true to their values, and stay in integrity.

Are you ready and willing to be successful?
How would success change your life?
What do you imagine success will cost?
What do you believe you need to do, say or think to be successful?

What is the value of success for you?
Who do you know who is successful?
Can you see and appreciate the successes you already have?

If you want to experience more success in your life, answer these questions for you.
Robert and I have experienced success over and over in big and little ways, with relationships, health, finances, creations, homes, start up businesses and more.
Life is meant to be always successful even with what some call failures…

Inspiring you to be successful!

Where Have All the Families Gone?

I now live in healthy relationships.
I treat everyone with trust, respect and appreciation.
I forgive us all for neglecting care of ourselves and our families.
I undo any unhealthy habit of mind or words quickly and easily.
I love to love everyone with the dignity and respect they deserve.

(See menu bar to left for our Success Seminars this month in three locations and on line recording.)

What is a healthy family?
Do parents know how to parent well?
Do we treat our children and elders with respect?
Are we teaching values, ethics and principles ?

Do we live according day to day, without a goal?
Are we guided by media, our associations or a standard that is healthy.
Do we teach our children by our example?
Do we make mature choices and treat ourselves with respect and appreciation?

We must have pictures of wholeness and healthy regard for all people.
We must remember how to sit together and be in positive conversation.
We must learn how to listen to one another with respect and compassion.
We must discipline ourselves to always be our best and give our best.

1.     Families become families because they share common goals.
2.     Families are successful because they are honest and keep confidences.
3.     Families work when everyone does their best to participate and contribute.
4.     Families support one another by committing to what is good for each one.
5.     Families encourage responsibility without using guilt or blame.

If you have never seen a family that discusses things without yelling, how could you know?
If you have never been in a family that prepares and eats meals together, how would you know?
If you have never witnessed a family that does their chores together, how could you know how?
If you have never been a part of a democratic decision-making, how would you know it is possible?

Organizations, businesses, teams, friendships, partnerships and families all can learn.
When we are willing to do better, we will learn better ways to relate.
When we are open to stop doing what does not work, we will be willing to explore what does work.
When we forgive ourselves for pushing our way harder and do what is smarter, we will succeed.

Success is not difficult, when there is no resistance.
Success in family relationships can be achieved by one person.
Success in any relationship requires that one person be willing to make new ways of respectful relating.
Success in every family comes from the willingness to forgive the past and begin again each day.

Where there is safety, people feel loved and valued.
Where there is stability, people feel loved and safe.
Where there is confidentiality, people feel loved and respected.
Where there is open-mindedness, people feel loved and heard.

There is lack of knowledge or experience of safety, stability, confidentiality and open-mindedness.
It is difficult to understand and demonstrate these four qualities, when we have little experience of them.
Healthy relationships are defined by respect, responsibility and co-operation.
Dysfunctional families may be unaware of what these ideals include.

Our culture must learn to build healthy lives, healthy communication, healthy relating.

Willing to teach, inspire and remind us all to practice everyday,

All I Do, I Do For All!

I easily change my thoughts and behavior to the best I know.
I treat everyone with the respect I seek.
I quickly forgive myself for the mistakes I make.
I easily undo what I do not want to reinforce or teach.
I clear my mind and extend only peace and love.

When we give to one, we give to all.
When we love even One, we all loving everyone.
Let us remember to contribute our best.
I know when my life has made a difference in even one life, it has benefitted all

Love every child.
Listen to one child with your heart.
Let one child know you care.
Share your happiness with one child.

No more yelling.
No more shaming and blaming.
No more abusing and confusing.
No more creating fear.

Teach helpfulness.
Show kindness.
Demonstrate responsibility.
Appreciate willingness.

Love every elder.
Take time to listen.
Be willing to lend a hand.
Offer help when asked.

No more belittling.
No more making wrong.
No more dismissing and demeaning.
No more mocking and demanding.

Treat each one with respect.
Listen with compassion.
Accept all the differences.
Be gentle with helpfulness.

Take time to understand.
Stand up for those who cannot do for themselves.
Speak up against bullying within families.
Stop violent words and actions.

We live in a time where violence seems to be freely accepted.
Violent words used on people and heard by infants are leaving their imprint.
Bullying seems to be accepted in families so children learn from parents.
If we cannot stop inappropriate behavior without threats of harm, we have erred.

Let us change ourselves….no more swearing, damning, cursing.
No more threatening ourselves and others.
No more hurtful thoughts, words or behaviors.
No more watching violent words or behavior on TV, movies, or in our families.

I give to you, to myself and my grandkids, the best I know.
I share with you what will change the world to one of kindness and respect.
I trust the change begins with me and all I affirm and choose to see.
When I am at peace and not a source of anger or threat, others learn to treat me with respect.

And so it is, you change the world you see, simply by forgiving and loving yourself and me.
I am loving you and all, one person at a time.
Betty Lue

No more violent behavior in your home or workplace.
No more threatening words or disrespect.
No more yelling or screaming words you regret.
No more damning or cursing the ones you love.
No more ignorant behavior or doing harm.
No more being immature in your treatment of others.

Time to stop and choose again with wisdom and love.
