The Dreams are Calling

When you have this thought, idea, dream and it keeps coming up again and again….and again, I would say that is a soul calling.

I have this belief (its mine, you don’t need to hold it),that we each have our own individual soul callings. Things that we are pre-destined to do in order to expand and uplift our planet.  It is in our own growth and expansion that it affects the planet and humanity as a whole. So when you grow, humanity grows.

I have had these soul callings for a long time-

The Ruby Slipper-an upscale resale shop containing dresses, shoes, purses, accessories and cute home accessories.  A place where the fashion forward woman can shop for one of a kind pieces enabling her to express her creative individuality.

Travel and Writing- (I get energy tingles when I write that). Traveling the world, gathering experiences, meeting people, collecting stories–from this, I write my experiences and share the wisdom gained and the self growth achieved.

Retreat Center-A place for healing the mind body and soul. Centered in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, this is a place of peaceful serenity for people to come and enjoy a spa like experience.

I keep thinking I need money to get all these things done (lots of money cuz I like things really really nice), and people to do it with, cuz I don’t like to be tied down to one place.  Are these thoughts blocking me?  Yes.

I am open Universe. Open to however you want things to come. I am working on a 2018 gathering in Hawaii…..selling on Ebay, bringing the Ruby Slipper to life virtually and writing right here.

Whoa! Feeling aligned with my soul calling— LOVIN LIFE!!

The Choice is Mine

If I spent as much time coming up with creative ways of living my life than I do spending time on being upset about outcomes or what I should be doing, I would have more fun.

Thoughts can weigh one down. When we live more in our heads, we are leading life from an over analytic way of living. Constantly circling one thought after another. Most times, thoughts from yesterday trying to sort feelings and emotions.

I get weighed down with thoughts so I tend to keep myself overly busy. That way, I have no time to think, other than what I will be doing and getting ready for the next thing.  I like it in a way. It keeps me in the present moment.

This same coping strategy ends up exhausting me and pushes me to the edge so I have to back off a bit and relax. But, I do see that I have found a balance with it. Like today, I chose to sleep in later, hug myself and pull back from social activities.

But, my mind is racing wondering what I will do next.  Who can I get together with? Should I go up north this weekend?  Should I stay home and read? Should I have a dinner party? Go to a movie? What shall I do?  Maybe just run away for the weekend to someplace secluded.  I always want to run run someplace to get away-from my life, from my thoughts. Somewhere different offers me different perspectives.  A chance to get away from things at home that remind me of the thoughts I have.

In mindfulness, they teach us to stay with our thoughts and feelings.  Pushing them away only leads to them constantly coming back, haunting us, resulting them to come back in negative behavior patterns.

I write a lot about thoughts.  My thoughts have haunted me all my life. Sometimes these were friendly hauntings, many times they were not.

I am not my thoughts. I have a choice in what I think. I have a choice in that I can either waste my time thinking of yesterday or give my mind a job of coming up with creative ways of doing, being, living, loving.

I have a choice.

I am not my thoughts.
