Remember This

The Daily Prompt – Powerful Suggestion

“What’s the one piece of advice you wish someone had given you a year (or five, or ten…) ago?”

I thought a lot about this question as I stood before the group of middle school kids. What did I need to know at this age? What did I wish someone would have told me? How can I make the biggest difference in their lives in the short time I have in front of them? What is the most important thing for us to always remember?

You are a vibrational being.

Energy and emotions are supposed to flow through you, not stick around forever. They will only stay with you if you talk about, blog about or share them repeatedly.

You are not your thoughts. Your brain is evolutionarily wired to focus on what’s wrong.
No worries, you can change that.

Your mind will hold onto hurts and failures much longer than your successes.
You can change that, too. Cultivate an awareness of your thoughts and
consciously choose to support yourself mentally.
Practice helps.

Your mind is a powerful focusing tool and you will always get
what you spend the most time focusing on. Success or failure.
There will be no wondering “what went wrong,” your focus brought it about.

Science has proven we are vibrational beings.
Western medicine and surgery is not the only way to heal.
Anything only works because we believe it does.
Modern medicine is like using an old Remington typewriter when you’ve got a brand new, lightning fast Mac to work on.
Energy medicine is the cutting edge technology.

You can actually feel the energy behind your emotions physically in your body
and release it to shift a current situation.
When you allow the energy to move, everything changes.

What you feel is more important than what you think.
When you quiet your mind and tune into your body, you get all the answers you need.
Yes, you can do this. Everyone can.

Aligning your energy with what you want
is more powerful than any physical effort you can exert.

Moving forward or acting out of fear or anger will only create
another situation that makes you feel afraid or angry.
Move the energy and everything changes.
It’s all energy and it’s all moving.

Grown ups don’t always handle situations in the best way.
We learn what we learn from whom we learn it. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s not.
Take the good and leave the rest.

Beliefs are just thoughts you keep thinking, over and over and over.
They aren’t always true.
Many of them don’t serve you.

If someone is trying to scare you, they are manipulating you.
Sometimes they mean to, sometimes they’re just scared.

There is no such thing as death.
We are energy.
Energy cannot be created nor destroyed.
It merely changes form.

Your passed loved ones are still around you, all day everyday, personality intact.
They are aware of you and your situation.
They love you and are offering you support and guidance in every moment.
When you tune into that, you can hear, feel, sense, or know whatever you need to know.
Yes, you can do this too. Even you.

There’s nothing to be scared of.
You carry your safety with you.
When you learn to move energy before you take action
you never have to worry about your security.

Be your own biggest cheerleader.
Be so kind and supportive of yourself in the quiet of your own mind.
Sure you want friends and loved ones,
but you can’t get all of your soothing and acceptance from them.
The way you treat yourself in your mind is the way the world will treat you.

I love you.
So many people love you.
The Universe/God/Source Energy/All That Is, loves you.
You’ve been placed on a perfect planet that supports your every need.
Your source loves you so much that you breathe in and out
and your heart beats everyday of your life without you having to think about it.

What more evidence do you need?
Ask me, I’ll give it to you.

My talk with the middle school kids didn’t go exactly like this. I kept it more on the scientific side. I wanted to help them understand on a basic level what their physical body and mind is doing when they find themselves nervous, scared or upset.

Faced with a big, important test, criticism from peers and family or not fitting in can feel terrible in the moment.

But when you know your automatic responses are just that, automatic, you can relax and give yourself the opportunity to feel better and find the perspective that serves you.

You’re never stuck. There is always a solution. And it’s always easier than you think.

I love you so much,

    Oh my gosh, you have found your way into my mind again. It is so funny (I think) that the past two weeks I have struggled with this very question. As I had just passed a year since to very close friends had passed (only 11 days apart) I had blogged some things that I had expressed long ago during my long hair hippie days (as an old guy from my home town use to call me when I would go home on the weekends from college).
    As I was typing those in thinking about my friends and some that I met along the way that very question ran right to the frontal lobe. I wondered what I could have advised myself? My answer. Nothing. I did not need to know anything thing other than what I would be learning. If I had been advised I might have missed out on some wonderful experiences and friends.
    Yet reading your blog today made me once again bring that question to the table. Interesting enough maybe I may have needed to know something. You have a very strong point and I will have to meditate over it later today to see if I change my mind. Thank You for this wonderful insight. And as long as you don’t mind cob-webs you can climb around the gray stuff anytime. LOL. Very nice and I believe I will learn something today.

      I love it, James. I too am a hippie. That’s what my dad calls me. I’ll take it. 🙂

      As I was reading your words I thought about you saying you didn’t need anything and you’d have missed out on some wonderful experiences and friends. I pondered that for a moment and say, yes… I have had wonderful experiences and friends and my life has been great. Certainly not always easy and sometimes terrible but from my perspective now, always great.

      That being said, what might I be doing now had I known what I know now? How much time did I spend in worry or heartache when a simple truth could have soothed and set me free.

      It’s totally cool I didn’t know it then. Every experience I’ve had has brought me to where I am now and I couldn’t be more proud or pleased with myself. 😉
      I’m just so thrilled to know what I know now and be able to share it. I want everyone to know that life can be so easy and we’re all supposed to be happy.

      Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and sharing your perspective.
      Much Love to you, James,

    This is beautiful! It needs to be printed up and framed for people to look at and remind themselves. I’m going to print it our and share it with my kids. I can understand why you might not share it those exact words in a public middle school, but it is some powerful information!


    1. Crystal Nuding

      Thank you, Michelle! I was thinking that myself. 🙂
      I’m honored you’re sharing with your kidlets! That just makes me so happy!
      Have a wonderful day! XO

    Beautifully said Crystal. I’ve been away from the blogging world for a while and have been missing your words of wisdom – finally finished a book I’ve been working on, which goes into the concept of balance and our connection to nature. I think there is a similarity between what you are saying here, being aware of what our “physical body and mind is doing,” not holding onto the past, and what I explored in my book, how we’ve lost our awareness of how the planet operates under a system of balance, so we do too, and thus we’ve lost our connection to nature.


    1. Crystal Nuding

      Thank you, James. That means so much to me. 🙂
      Congratulations on your book! It sounds wonderful. Helping more people understand balance, awareness and our connection to nature is so important. Thank you for doing what you do!
