Mindfulness Empowers

I wake up from mistakes and choose again easily.
I pay attention to what is good for us all.
I relinquish holding grievances and choose gratitude instead.
I attend to my positive and beneficial thoughts.

Focus Your Attention on What You Want!

Are you paying attention to your mind and your thoughts?
Are you focused on what bad might happen or on the good?
Are you defensive or proactive?
Are you closed and stuck or open and flexible?

No matter which direction we place our attention, we create that experience.
So when we are afraid something bad might happen, we experience worry, fear, and sometimes the “bad”.
When you expend energy on lying, cheating, stealing, you will most likely experience the same for  you.
The way we use our mind determines how we think, speak and behave.

We become masters of our mind when we practice mindfulness.
Using forgiveness, affirmations, choices and gratitude are an effective way to train your mind.
What we think is an unconscious or programmed choice until we develop mastery.
The way we allow ourselves to think is a tool we can use to control our life experience.

Consider changing your mind from illness to wellness.
Consider focusing on how much good you have rather than what is wrong.
Delete the negatives and change your mind to focus on the good.
Give praise and gratitude for what is working for you and ignore what is not working.

Believe it or not, we are responsible for our experiences with how we focus our attention.
Our mind is a powerful magnet, a lazer which attracts what we think, see, hear, feel, speak and live.
When we have an experience we no longer want, we can learn to undo and let it go.
We can forgive, erase, delete and undo what we no longer want to be true.

Some questions to ask ourselves is:
What do I want?
What can I do?
What can I choose to have what I want?

Some healthy and clearing responses:
I want something better.
I can forgive myself and learn from my mistakes.
I can choose to apologize for my mistaken thoughts, words and behavior and choose again.

Stop blaming anyone including yourself for your mistakes.
Start appreciating your willingness to learn and forgive.
Open your mind to what is best for you and for others.
Enjoy the opportunity to learn from everyone and everything.

Mistakes are opportunities to learn.
Value them and you will learn and heal and grow.
Make the choice to be willing to let go and choose again.
So focus on the learning and the solutions.

Trusting we are always going forward with our focus on the desired outcome.
Betty Lue

“Life is for learning.
Education leads out of ignorance.
The more we learn, the more we know.
The more we know, the better our resources.
The more  resources, the more choice we have.”
The more choices, the more enjoyable life can be.”

I begin and end my day with gratitude.
I choose an attitude of gratitude and find joy.
I am grateful for myself and my life.
I appreciate my relationships and all I am learning.

Gratitude Heals!

When we are grateful, we remember the wholeness.
When we are grateful, we create even more Good.
When we are grateful, we open our heart and mind.
When we are grateful, we feel and express happiness.

Life is meant to be appreciated and enjoyed.
Relationships are for the purpose of healing.
Everything is an excuse to be in relationship.
When we recognize the healing in our relationships, we are grateful.

It takes consciousness to realize that when we are healed, we are not healed alone.
When we are bumped, nudged and upset, we have become aware of something to heal.
Upsets are revealing the need for healing.
When we take responsibility for healing, we are grateful for the call to heal.

Taking time to heal is our responsibility.
We need not feel angry, guilty or blaming when we are upset.
We need only take responsibility for revealing what needs to be healed in us.
When we acknowledge what needs to be healed, we are grateful.

Be grateful when your buttons are pushed.
Be grateful you have been awakened.
Be grateful you have revealed something to be healed.
Be grateful you can do the healing.

Our choice is to heal the wound.
Our choice is to erase the prejudice.
Our choice is to do the work.
Our choice is to be grateful.

When we do not know what is producing the anxt or pain, we must dig deeper.
When we do not understand the fear and judgment, we must look within.
When we do not get what is hurting us, we must be open and willing.
When we are open and willing, we are respectful, kind and curious.

Look within and you will see and hear and know.
Listen within and you will be guided to healing.
Trust what you recognize and respond with Love.
Free yourself to allow Love to heal all things.

Grateful Love heals.

Greet Everyone with Respect!

I honor each One as the Gift You Are.
I celebrate and appreciate the beauty within  it All.
I am well aware of the blessing to be here alive!
I see the Good in all parts we play in the drama of life.

Treat All with Respect

Let us greet and treat others as we want to be treated.
Let us love each one with the attention and kindness we want.
Let us remember one another with appreciation and value.
Let us begin today seeing ourselves in the way we want to be seen.

It is possible that we have been false witnesses to ourselves and others.
It is likely we have only looked and evaluated the surface of each being.
It is amazing that we neglected to see the magnificence in ourselves and others.
It is incredible that we have missed the best part of our relationship journey.

How have we not seen the beauty within this world?
How have we missed the Goodness and love in so much of what is?
How have we not appreciated the gift in each sharing of talent?
How have we denied our own self-appreciation and worth?

Is it not time to wake up and smell the fragrance and see the beauty?
Is it time to stop denying the miracle of life in which we live?
Are we not ready to simply enjoy and celebrate the awakening of the Sun?
Are we not the ones to shout out our gratitude for the Miracles of Creation?

Look within and you will see the Love waiting for you.
Look out and you will see those waiting for your Love and to Love you in return.
Look down and you will see the Beauty and Bounty of this Earth Home.
Look up and you will see the open space in which to fly free and imagine the infinite.

We are blessed to be here now.
We are challenged to be here now.
We are gifted to be here now.
We are invited to be here now.

Are you ready to enjoy it all?
Are you willing to see it all?
Are you open to be grateful for it all?
Are you allowing yourself to give your Best to it all?

Your life and mine have a way of calling us out of hiding.
We can hear the old “hide and seek” when found, “You Are It!”
It is true you are here to be the One who shows us and touches Home Base.
You can allow yourself to come out of hiding and be willing to be the One.

Begin by greeting yourself each Morning.
Find your True Self and respect your whole Being.
Look beneath the skin and see the Gift within.
Listen closely to your inner guidance system and Love You.

Loving You, because I know You as Myself!

Allow Your True Self To Be!

I am willing to be All I Am.
I uncover my disguise and see as all as whole and Holy.
I Give All to All and discover Who I Am.
I reveal myself when I heal all belief in lack and limitation.

Are You Allowing Your Self To Be?

Are you letting your Self be happy?
Are you seeing your Self as whole?
Are you forgiving your Self for limiting your Self?
Are you willing to fully and freely be Who You Are?

When we are having fun, feeling safe and flowing with what is, we are being our Self!
When we are relinquishing our seriousness and feeling open and willing, we are remembering.
When we are undoing our fear and really being here, we are touching the present moment.
When we are joining with what is with no lack or comparison, we are feeling at home.

Our lives are gifts to us.
When we fully unwrap our gift, we see our authentic Self.
When we freely disclose our Self to one another, we reveal the Essence,
When we are willing to Be All We Are, we realize our Magnificence.

This Authentic Self has been called many names.
We have judged our safety in being Great.
We have feared our exposure to be Love.
We have misunderstand the Source of this Gift.

We have been given a gift of unmeasureable Price.
Yet, we deny our own Value.
We have been bestowed the Greatest Give of Love.
Yet, we have withheld this Love from ourselves and others.

How can it be that we fear our own Worth?
Why would we want to hold back on our Treasure?
How can we not share what has been given?
Why wait for Trust and Freedom to let it all Show?

First receive the Gift of the One We Are.
Accept and appreciate the Joy of receiving.
This Pearl of Self has taken years of refining to shine.
We are here to open up and show the Beauty that lies within.

We are here to show up and pay attention.
We are here to see and share who We Are.
We are here to allow and accept our Beauty.
We are here to realize What We Have Been Given.

Our Whole Life is for Giving.
We are the Gift here to Be received by us.
We are here to share the Gift of Self
We recognize the Gift We Are when we freely Give this Gift.

In our giving the world is blessed.
In our sharing the world is prospered.
In our Self Revelation, we can see Who We are Here to Be.
In our Recognition of Self, we recognize the Gift in EveryOne.

“Peek A Boo”!
I see you!
I recognize You!
You are Love!
Betty Lue

“Our Greatest Fear”

Our greatest fear
is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light,
not our darkness,
that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
“Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, talented and fabulous?”
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that others won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some of us,
it is in everyone,
and as we let our own light shine
we unconsciously give other people permission
to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear
our presence automatically liberates others.
Marianne Williamson, 1992

Vows for Life!

I choose abundant life filled with gratitude and joy.
I give myself to love, trust and freedom to be.
I release all blocks to love.
I shine my light and see the goodness and Love.

Renew Your Vows for Life!

It is time to renew your vows to live.
Time to choose again to be alive.
Time to remember why you came.
Time to realign yourself with your values.

We volunteer to come to live our life fully and freely.
We choose how and where and what we are here to be.
We opt to live to help, to heal, to teach and learn.
We choose to serve our healing and higher purpose.

When we forget in the denseness of the earth, we lose our way.
We may become victims of the world’s confusion, conflict and chaos.
We may neglect the reason for our being, our body and our purpose.
We may even come to think ourselves as meaningless and inadequate.

Our work is to awaken and reclaim our authentic Self and life purpose.
Our work is to return to Love and remember our Holy Purpose.
Our work is to forgive our forgetfulness and neglect and choose again.
Our work is to reclaim our innocence and trust and be All that We Are.

When we realign with our Higher Purpose, we feel alive, alert and enthusiastic.
When we remember to forgive all grievances, we return to our natural state.
When we vow again to live and give abundantly, we find inner peace and happiness.
When we reclaim our Authentic Self, we realize we volunteered for this assignment.

Easter is a sign to remind us to awaken and enjoy what is given.
This Holy Day is an opportunity to see what can be when we remember.
This is a time to renew our vows to be here now with and for all.
And If we do not know the why and where and how, we can ask and listen within.

Life is meant to be a time of revelation and celebration.
Life is a gift of healing and setting ourselves free to be.
Life is an opportunity to uncover our eyes and open our heart.
Life is a constant reminder of what can be when we are free.

Take time to pause and listen to the Truth.
Unravel the meanderings of fear-based learning.
Relinquish the need to understand what is untrue.
Set aside the personality imaginings that are not you.

You are Who You are meant to be.
Within you is everything radiant for all to see.
Around you is the calling to serve with delight.
Your Gift is to free yourself to be All You are.

Live, Love, Laugh and be Happy!
Life offers you the amazing opportunities to create, serve, learn, heal, share, enjoy and laugh.
Life is present for you to amuse and amaze yourself with freedom to choose again and again.
Life is the gift you give yourself to learn and remember Who You Are.
Life is your space for practice and play, to create, affirm and pray.

Renew your vows to listen within to your Authentic Self.
You will remember “Life can be fun, safe and easy.”
Let us Live, Love, Laugh and Be Happy!

Loving you and All as we Awaken in Love and Ascend together.

Give Meaning to Life!

I am here to be truly helpful.
I am here to represent the Love that created me.
I do not have to worry about what to say or do because the Love within me will direct me.
I am content to be wherever Love wishes, knowing Love Is always here within me.
I remember my Holiness. when I let Love teach me to see the Holiness and Divinity in all.
(from  A Course in Miracles)

Affirm What You Believe!

What Does Anything Mean?

What do you believe?
Where do your beliefs come from?
How do you know what is true?
What matters anyway?

So many ideas and stories and imaginings we have heard.
How do we know what is true, and do we really care?
Does it matter to us is if we be right or be happy?
Do we choose to believe the truth that inspires us or deflates us?

I prefer to follow the path of light and delight.
I choose to believe what lifts me up and keeps me inspired.
I let go of what burdens me with heaviness and  I open my heart to happiness.
I trust what is good for me and you and all humanity.

We each choose our own way on this holy day to remember.
I remember the admiration I have for all who choose the healing way.
I recognize the Goodness I feel when I see us hold hands around the world.
I honor the opportunity to do my part in bringing us together in goodness, kindness and love.

Let us feed and clothe and shelter our sisters and brothers.
Let us share the abundance we have with those who are in need.
Let us bring healthcare and healing to those who have been forgotten.
Let us put shoes on the feet and books in the arms of all our children.

Let us remember the song of prayer and forgiveness.
Let us join in singing our love for one another.
Let us take time to give thanks for the blessings of life.
Let us appreciate all we have and give and are each day.

When I give meaning to my life, I see the meaning in all life.
When I live fully and freely, my life matters to me and my world.
When I know my life matters, I do more, I have more, I give more.
There is nothing that prevents me from valuing the life I have.

As we approach Easter this Spring, let us give meaning to our own life.
As we awaken from the tomb of unconsciousness, let us dedicate ourselves to living fully.
As we rise up and step out on our path this time, let us give our best and let the rest fall away.
As we join in participation, let there be a celebration of our wholeness and beauty and love.

We are here to do good, see good, feel good and share the good with all.
Valuing the opportunity to be with you always in Love,
Betty Lue

Going Down or Up?

I learn from the “down’s” and bounce back up.
I choose my destination and keep going until I get there.
I let go of the old ways and renew my self again and again.
I came to experience abundant life and rejoice.

Good Friday is often seen a day of fasting and purification, as a reminder of the Holiness.
Good Friday, sometimes seen as God’s Friday, is a commemoration of the redemption of humanity’s innocence.
Good Friday reminds us that we can choose to practice “forgiveness” of ourselves and others.
No matter our faith or beliefs, we can choose which way we go today and everyday.

Which Way Are You Going?

Stepping into the elevator of life, you choose your direction.
Are you going down?
Or are you going up?
We choose our direction everyday with our thoughts, words and behavior.

Are we living or dying?
Are we lying down or standing up?
Are we crying and feeling sorry for ourselves or smiling and appreciating ourselves?
We can begin again today with a simple change of direction and attitude.

When we wake up in the morning our attitude sets our direction in motion.
When we wake up happy and enthusiastic, we set us up for a positive experience.
Everyone around us feels the vibe and sees our smile and hears our tone.
Those we encounter in person, on the phone and even in our thoughts catch the “up” direction.

When we wake up grouchy, tired or negative, it gets picked up by others.
We are infecting our home and workplace with our dark thoughts and negative interaction.
When we criticize others for what we feel, we are adding to the negative energy.
When we choose our own vibration and attitude, we can turn around what seems down.

We have a choice to go up, go down or stay neutral.
We can stop the elevator and turn the direction around by pushing a button.
We can push others’ “up” and “down” buttons with our intention and unconsciousness.
Perhaps it is time we take responsibility for what we do and say and m how we behave.

Being “up” during difficult times can make everything better and easier and healthier.
Being “down” can spiral ourselves and others down even farther to fear and darkness.
We can literally “make matters worse” with negative talk and hysterical reactions.
We can watch fear-based media and terrorize ourselves by focusing on the ‘down’ direction.

We are adding to our choices for dis-ease & fear or to well-being and love.
We can listen to people who bring us down or up when we talk with them.
We can support upward mobility and clear vision or downward fall and distorted seeing.
When we are emotionally reactive and contracting, we do not respond with enlightened vision.

Everyday we are in a place of choice.
We get up in the morning making a choice to be inspired or depressed.
We look in the mirror of our relationships with appreciation or criticism
We step out into our world with hope or despair.

The elevator of our consciousness is always going up when we are willing to say “yes”!
When we answer the call, we will inspire and be inspired.
We only need to choose to enjoy the abundant life that lives within and around us.
The time has come to forgive the past, open our eyes and see the dawning of light.

Loving our willingness. 
Together let’s say YES to Life!
Betty Lue

I love myself as I am.
I free myself to be the best me I can be.
I trust myself to know what is right and true for me.
I respect and admire myself for doing what is highest and best for me.

Who Are You Copying?

Do you admire someone and follow what they do?
Are you copying what you have heard will be good?
Are you imprinted by those in your family of origin?
Do you believe what you hear from authority figures?

When we do not know what is right for us, we tend to do what we are told.
When we are afraid and resisting those we distrust, we tend to do exactly the opposite.
When we want to be like someone we admire, we tend to copy their behavior and mannerisms.
When we are unaware of those who have come before us, we often repeat their history unconsciously.

Animals and human beings tend to copy others of the same origin and history.
When we become aware, we can choose to continue the behavior or make a change.
When we know what is not right for us, we can conscientiously choose to break the cycle.
When we do not notice, we tend to go along to belong to what is familiar.

Children often take on the identity of their parents in name and behaviors and history.
Children may take on their parents’ emotions and fears, mistakes and self judgments.
Children may repeat their family history unconsciously often as an act of healing and love.
Children will seek to find a better way and make wiser decisions to find a better way.

We are the first generation to take the time and energy to assess what works and doesn’t.
This is the first time people have the opportunity to forgive the past and choose again.
We are the ones who will clear the past and choose for a future that is more awake and aware.
This is our opportunity to support and encourage a healthier happier, more fulfilling way to live.

Stop and look at whom you admire, emulate and desire to be.
Are you taking the time to see who you really are?
Have you begun to discover the gifts and talents you bring?
Are you willing to be true to your own unique way of being?

‘Copying is a form of flattery’, they say.
Copying may be the easiest way to try to live like another.
Copying may reflect your values and how you want to be.
Reflect on you and whether others want to copy you, too.

Do you copy to join with the latest beliefs?
Do you copy to make sure you don’t upset anyone?
Do you copy because you see it as right for you?
Do you copy to be sure you are not noticed or judged?

Set the highest standard you can imagine for yourself.
Give yourself the attention you need to do what is good for you?
Learn the alternatives to always doing the same thing.
Believe you can be unique and live your whole life in integrity.

Life gives us opportunities to discover and find our own ways.
Trust your Self and free your Self to be your Self!
Why not, go for it?

Love you as you are. 
Me too!
Betty Lue

I am hearing once again to listen to my own heart and follow the guidance therein.
I am trusting that what inspires and lifts me with joy is what I am called to do.
I am inviting you to do what is within you and your calling today and everyday.
I am knowing that this is our time to step out with love, freeing ourselves to be.

We are the ones who must  honor our  highest choices with prayer and voice and action.
Choosing a sunrise gathering this year at our Lake House!
With Freedom and Trust I let it all be.
