Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition

We had a flood here on the Blanco River on Halloween night. We went out the next day to see how everything looked. The powerful water that came through the area did some rearranging.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Window

The windows in Guatemala were beautiful. Actually the windows, the architecture, the people the country… all beautiful. The time spent there changed my life and taught me so much about perspective. Our life is exactly how we see it. What perspective are you taking?

Always something beautiful to see.

Always something beautiful to see… have a peek at Lake Atitlan!

Lots of bars… but flowers too!

The detail amazes me! How’d they do that?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning

That beautiful first blush...

That beautiful first blush…

I know it’s January, but like many of my gardening friends my thoughts are never far from Spring. The memory of morning walks in my garden to discover tomatoes beginning to ripen makes my heart skip a beat.

Enjoy your Winter and the experience of going within but know that Spring always comes and the time for our silent seeds to emerge will be here before you know it.

Seeing this being a peaceful season of quiet internal growth for you that culminates in beautiful bounties you didn’t know you could create.

Love and Blessings,
Crystal

New Year, New Rules

Sending health, happiness and prosperity to you!

Sending health, happiness and prosperity to you!

Happy New Year dear friends! Here’s to 2014 being your best year yet!

Do you really truly know what drives you? What compels you to make the decisions you do? I want you to think about the unspoken rules you live by and if they are working for you or against you.

So many of our beliefs(rules), make our lives more difficult than necessary. But, what if they aren’t true? How do you know?

What if there were an easy way to figure it out?

Good news… there is.

Once we take an honest look at the “rules” that govern the way we live our lives we get to consciously decide if they work for us or if maybe they are someone else’s rules we picked up by default and could change with ease.

What unexamined beliefs do you have that silently keep you on the hamster wheel of same stuff, different day? What false beliefs did you pick up in childhood or your early life that don’t allow you to experience the success you see in others?

Good girls don’t. Some folks can, but I can’t. The other shoe is about to drop. I’m not good enough. I don’t have what it takes. You have to work hard to make good money. Our bodies are meant to decline. I don’t know how. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. It’s impossible. I’m not smart enough. Girls wear pink and play with dolls. Boys take out the trash and mow the lawn. Daddy’s don’t stick around. Men are no good. Women are only after your money. Nothing good ever lasts. Expect the worst so you won’t be disappointed. Things never work out for me. I have terrible luck. You can’t find good help around here. All I deal with are liars and cheats. Nobody wants to work anymore. If you want it done right you have to do it yourself. I’m damned if I do and damned if I don’t.

Most of us don’t really believe all of these statements, but too many people don’t realize the energetic feelings behind this false information is quietly and surely shaping your life and experiences.

Do you have a hard time hiring someone only to have them leave a few months after proving a valuable asset to your team or organization? Maybe you are struggling to get pregnant or hoping to find a life partner or career that pays your bills and fulfills your soul. Wouldn’t it be nice to know why it hasn’t worked out thus far and how to get yourself on track to letting it in?

There is a reason you are experiencing the blocks in your life and the right perspective can change everything. Learn how and why you look at life the way you do now and discover just how easy it is to change that.

Buying into the idea that struggle is honorable and hard work has to be painful is definitely old paradigm.

Welcome to 2014! Science has shown us in great detail how this world truly works and it’s a waste of your good life to continue operating from the limited knowledge and understanding of the 1800’s.

Not to worry…. Help is on the way!

Stay tuned in the next few weeks for my new Online Self-Paced Course.

The Energy Element Online Course

This informative and uplifting course will be a great way for you to begin delving into the new paradigm of ease and flow at your convenience at your own pace, in your own home.

You’ll discover the biggest block to your happiness and how to release it. You’ll find out what keeps you from getting that promotion, relationship or new body you’ve been wanting and working so hard for.

You’ll also find out why you’re never satisfied, even when you get what you want and the trick to being happy, no matter what.

I’ll give you all the information, resources and activities you need to get your life moving in a whole new direction. Find out what truly works for you and how to allow yourself to create the life of your dreams rather than re-creating the same limitations, frustrations and irritations that have plagued you for years.

Learn the real rules for living the life you want in 2014. They are not what you think and it’s way easier than what you’ve previously been doing to try and make big changes in your life. Here’s a secret you’ll learn about the rules… you get to make them up. I’ll teach you how.

Take a deep breath and relax. Life is about to get a whole lot easier and way more fun.

I’m here to help.

Don’t Worry, Just Be

Relaxing on the river

Relaxing on the river

“Singin’ don’t worry, about a thing, cause every little thing, is gonna be alright.”

“Three Little Birds” – Bob Marley

It really is.

Don’t worry, everything is always working out for you. That difficult task in front of you. The solution you need but don’t know about. It’s already been done. Someone has already figured it out and knows how to do it. The research has been done and findings published. Easier ways have been discovered and created. Plans have been shared and tweaked to perfectly fit any situation.

It’s that easy. All the information we need is readily available, we just have to know how to find it.

And finding it is much easier than looking for a needle in a haystack. You actually don’t have to build any bridges or tear down any walls to get to it. And you don’t have to travel to far away places to find it. You don’t need airfare, a doctors note, your parents or spouses permission. It’s all right here, you just have to relax.

Our health can be recovered. Our finances can bounce back. Our family can once again(or for the first time) come together in harmony. Our every need can be fulfilled in any moment when we are willing to give up our struggle against and begin looking for what we want.

Everything we require or desire is available to us. If you didn’t already know this… just Google it.

My mom was staying with my son when we were out of town and he was attending a dressy function that required a tie. As I’m the one that always tied his ties, he ask his Grammie for help. She didn’t know how to tie it either, so, what to do?

That’s right, he Googled it.

“How to tie a Windsor knot” and Voilà! a long list of handy dandy videos and info-graphics explaining and giving a examples of how to do it. Done. That was easy! Next.

During the six years I helped run a very successful internet business I never had to reinvent the wheel. Every time a need or desire arose the first question was “how do we make this work?” and then I’d Google it and find more information than you could shake a stick at. Someone has done a review and given you a short list of the top software, sites, tutorials, videos, cameras, cars, web hosts, etc. If I couldn’t find it immediately, I’d say something like, “No worries! Won’t it be nice when I stumble across just the exact right thing we’re looking for?” And inevitably I’d find it.

Everything you need is out there. The answer to your prayer, the solution to your problem, the cure for your disease… all available and closer than you think.

The quickest way to finding what you need is to go within. Take a break from the whirlwind of your physical reality for a moment and just be. Take a few deep breaths now, in through your nose, filling your belly first and then your lungs, hold it for a couple seconds and release. Pull in your belly at the end to completely empty your lungs so you’re getting a full fresh breath every time. (Do that three to ten times whenever you need to relax and find a better perspective.)

Breathe and feel what you feel physically in your body. Listen to what kind of thoughts your mind is generating. Are they hopeful, helpful thoughts or are you singularly focused on the problem and how big and bad it is.

Your focus is creating your reality.

If there is something in your life you don’t like and don’t want, give yourself a moment to acknowledge the feelings of worry, fear, frustration and upset around the situation. Acknowledge your humanity and appreciate the fact that you are not the first person to deal with this issue and there are plenty of people who have made it through using a number of different approaches that you might not know about or understand.

For every question, there is an answer.

For every problem, there is a solution.

For every prescription drug, there is a natural remedy that that drug was derived from or created to replace.

There’s a shoe for every foot and an ass for every seat.

There are buyers for what you are selling that only want to buy from you. There is no competition, except in your mind.

There is nothing you can’t create or allow into your life if you know how the world works and are willing to work within it’s rules. (Your focus creates your reality. Have I said that before?)

For every problem, there IS a solution.

Nothing is impossible. It ain’t over till it’s over and if it isn’t over, you can find another way.

How do you find this way?

Stop reacting.

Let yourself be OK with however you feel right now. Accept your feelings as momentary, passing waves of emotion.

Emotion = Energy in Motion

Discover the power of poise. The next time you are struck by a powerful negative feeling or emotion allow yourself to relax and take three deep breaths. You’ll notice the intensity of the emotion begins to diminish in your body much more quickly than it does when you react out of fear, anger or frustration. As that feeling passes, clarity comes. Your deep emotion subsides and you are able to make better decisions and actually see the situation as the good information it is… a heads-up alert to what you’re creating.

Your emotions are a precise indicator of your focus and thoughts. Notice when you feel bad that you are focusing on lack, limitation, blame, anger, frustration, worry, irritation, etc. When you feel good you’re focused on and thinking about good things in your life, happy times, lovely family members, the great job you did, the many blessings you have or things that please you. This is quite simple and very easy for you to confirm and acknowledge to/for yourself.

I’ll give you a minute…

So you’ll now begin to recognize that what you are thinking about and focusing on, you are creating. Period. Bottom Line. End of Story. Therefore, whatever you are worrying about you are also creating.

But, don’t worry! We’re all human. We came by it honestly. It came by our birth into our families, communities and society that didn’t have the information we have now. They were raised thinking outside circumstances controlled their lives and that’s what we learned. But when you know better, you can do better.

Give yourself a break and practice focusing on your destination. Where do you want to go? What do you want to do? What experiences do you long for? Do you want to experience perfect health? Do you want to get married and have a baby? Do you want to be financially secure and free?

Think about what it is you most want to feel…  happy, loved and loving, satisfied, healthy, engaged, peaceful, excited, free, joyous and abundant? This is how you focus on the end result. The finish line. Not what you think it’s going to take to get you there. But, just being there.

Don’t worry about what it will take to make it happen, just do what’s right in front of you. When you put one foot in front of the other and take care of what you need to take care of, with your focus on the end result, the easier road with all it’s possibilities and solutions will present itself in the most delightful way.

I am holding the vision of your perfect health, happiness, vitality and abundance. It’s available to you in all moments. Relax and receive.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

All my love to you for a joyous and blessed holiday season,

Crystal

Take More Naps

Happy Thursday folks and here’s your public service announcement for today and the rest of your life.

Take More Naps.

This boy knew how to nap.

This boy knew how to nap.

As the holidays speed toward us and we have so much on our plates, it’s important we take care of ourselves physically (and emotionally!) so we don’t get too stressed and overwhelmed by the whole process.

With travel, gifts, meals, parties and events to plan, prepare and coordinate this time of year is notorious for fraying nerves. Carving out time for yourself to rest and revitalize will help everything come together much more smoothly and efficiently.

When we’re asleep, we are completely relaxed. We enjoy relief from whatever troubles we’ve been dealing with. Our minds let go and allow the universe to continue showering us with blessings we might have been denying during our waking time by focusing on problems or how much we still have left to do.

Plan for yourself to take short power-naps or longer whenever you are able and just watch what happens. Before your nap and as you’re going to sleep at night, lightly set your intention to relax and release your worries of the day while gaining clarity on courses of action and setting yourself up for success.

Once you understand the importance of soothing and caring for yourself everything changes. Giving yourself the time to relax between meetings, tasks, parties and planning insures you are bringing the very best of you to each task.

Here’s to good rest and almost effortless holidays!

All My Love and Many Blessings,

Weekly Photo Challenge – Let There Be Light!

While spending time in Italy last summer, during our visit to Castel Gandolfo, we struck out on a hike around Lake Albano. After a stop for a refreshing beverage and sustenance in the form of Arugula, Tomato & Cheese pizza we headed for home.

As we were getting lost and finding our way again, this beautiful scene presented itself.

Castel Gandolfo Sunset

Sunset over Castel Gandolfo, Italy.

The beautiful setting sun and great company made this a must capture moment.

Then of course, came the tunnel that took us back through the mountain to the beautiful home where we were staying. With barely a sidewalk on either side and the maniacal Italian drivers coming from both directions, each trip through the tunnel was an adventure. Thank goodness there were lights!

Always and adventure!

Always an adventure!

Giving Thanks for Peace

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope your day was filled with warmth, good food, good company and loving family of all kinds.

I am thankful for the love of my family and friends, my happiness and the peace in my heart.

Although our lives may never be exactly what we want, things are always shifting and changing. New opportunities and blessings present themselves as surely as we stumble across old challenges.

My deep peace comes from my knowledge of how the world works, my ability to not take everything I think seriously and knowing how to let myself feel what I feel without struggle. I know nothing lasts long if I don’t resist it and saying three magic words can change everything. Yes & Thank you.

It’s relatively simple but can be difficult to accept if we’ve spent our lives…reacting to every situation, blaming others for our unhappiness and misfortune, beating ourselves up for every tiny mistake we think we’ve made or thinking someone was “out to get us.”

I can relate to all of it. That was how I lived for a while. It was all I knew. Reacting to life. Recognizing I had control and learning to exercise that control was difficult and heart-wrenching before I learned the true secret to letting life be easy.

Here’s to living each day, appreciating the wonderful people, circumstances and opportunities that constantly surround us. They are always there, we just sometimes get side-tracked by things that worry and scare us.

“Stuff” is nice but, happiness, health and abundance, the natural by-products of true and lasting peace make life a delicious dream.

This was my favorite coffee cup that I went for every morning at the lake. Our last visit, I got the news that my little friend is no longer with us. I’m so happy I have the pictures!

Here’s to great coffee, unexpected companions and morning conversations!

It’s pretty darn wet and chilly in my part of the world. I’m sending you all the warmth of love and compassion as you get ready to host or travel for Thanksgiving.
