Reminder of a Reminder

Dear Traveling Companions,

It is so nice to hear from my readers. When we
are being tugged in every direction with a million
things demanding our time, I am honored to know
people stop to read my ramblings, and even more,
I feel so grateful to know that they have helped
in some way.

I was sent a sweet acknowledgement email indicating
that a particular quote I included in one recent
issue came at just the right moment to help this
wonderful one out of a pot hole of negativity and
overwhelm. When we train our eyes to see, a miracle
appears… or at least something to sustain us
through the next step.

In response I reminded my fellow traveler that,
“What we focus on expands. Thoughts become things,
so make them good ones!

Negative thoughts and feelings can be very sticky.

Stop for a moment when you can. Right now, perhaps?

Put your hand over your heart and take three deep
breaths, feeling consciously every one. Breath in
the truth of your magnificence before all the untrue
labels took you over. Let this loving sense of who
you really are flow into you from head to toe.

See it transforming all your anxiety and complaints.
Breathe out any attachment to feeling guilty, shameful,
or not enough. Breathe in a willingness to boldly
shine in big and small ways. Breathe out your attachment
to being right. Breathe in the simple joys that surround
you – do you hear a bird?

Smell something delightful? Notice it.

Perhaps only a pin point spot on your elbow feels
glorious amidst all the trouble that surrounds you.
Take that good feeling and double it. Then double it
again… etc. etc. etc.

Now, lean fully in the direction of what you love
and all that is working, giving little attention to
what seems to go wrong.”

So, today I took a dose of my own medicine. I have
been leveled by the flu for several days and still
feel pretty yucky. All the ‘shoulds’ clamor for immediate
attention in my head. Then came my miracle… this
acknowledgement to my reminders.

I read what I wrote and felt better. Thanks goodness
we teach best what we most need to learn.

“No need to be perfect. We already are, even with our

Together we join hands as we learn, remember, and
be who we authentically are in each moment, moment
by moment.

Thanks for the reminder of my reminder!

It came at a perfect time.

In Joy (and with a few aches),
