How to Have A Better Day!

Each morning is an opportunity at life and you can improve how your day goes by how you start it.  So before you check your text messages, e-mail, or turn on the news energize your mental and physical self. Let me show you how.

Quite Time
Even though you have just woke up you need to spend a few minutes doing one if not all of the following.

White Light
Visualize the White Light going through your body and spirit cleansing and recharging.

Meditate.
It is been proven that meditation brings blood pressure down and increases the feeling of well being.

Pray.
If you say nothing else but ‘Thank You’, you have said a great deal in prayer.

Stretch.
Our bodies need a little bit of warming up before we jump out of bed and it’s important to stretch your muscles. Watching an animal when they wake up you will notice that they always take a few moments to stretch. Your muscles will thank you for this.

Hydrate Your Body
When you wake up your body is dehydrated and it’s important to drink a glass of water before you have your morning coffee or tea.  Doing this will help all of your organs as well as cleansing the system.

Feed Your Body
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  You are breaking a fast.  It does not have to be an elaborate meal.  They can be a yogurt, an egg, or protein drink.  The brain does not function without protein and you need it to get your day going right.

Keep a Gratitude Diary
Take a few moments and think about things you are grateful for such as a full night’s rest, the sun shining, whatever you can think of and write about it.  It does not have to be something big to be grateful for.  Being thankful for what you have can make a big difference in how you feel.

Use Affirmations.
It’s important to use an affirmation each day. It can be the same one or different one. It’s important to say it out loud as your subconscious mind absorbs what you are saying. Keep doing this and you will see changes.

Make a To Do List
No one is superman and we face a great many things in each day.  Write down what are the most important things to get accomplished for the day.  Work your way down the list and if you don’t get everything done in one day move it to the next day.

Every night before bed I write out a list of what I need to do for the following day.  Sometimes it’s the most insignificant things that I write down, but those are the things we often overlook.  I always manage to get done what I have on that list.  Many people think about doing this, but never start.  So start today and see your world change.

Many blessings,

Are You Thankful This Thanksgiving?

Gratitude holiday

Have you stopped to think about it?
What DO you have to be thankful for?

Having the Gratitude Attitude
Yes, it might feel great to win the lottery. Money, houses, travel – these are wonderful, but not enough by themselves. You need the right frame of mind to fully enjoy life. You need the attitude of gratitude.

Be Grateful
Life is better when you feel blessed, when you can look around and say “Thank you, Creator.” Religious or not, when you see life as a wonderful gift, your experience is a richer one than any amount of money can provide. Imagine going through life like you’re a child, and every morning is Christmas.

Be thankful that you are able to breathe on your own without the use of the machine. Be thankful that you can get out of bed without assistance. Be thankful that you can walk, talk, and see. There’s so much to be grateful for every day of your life, it’s just changing your attitude.

It’s tempting to think gratitude comes from having what you want. You see yourself giving thanks if you had money, a loving family, and maybe a house on the beach. Still, you know there are ungrateful, unhappy people with these things, and poor people full of gratitude for what little they have. Where does this feeling come from?

Creating Gratitude
Gratitude arises from how you look at things. It is the natural feeling that comes from truly appreciating the people and things in your life. It is also something you can learn.

You’re never too old to start learning how to be grateful.

First, you have to stop and smell the roses. You can’t be thankful for something you don’t notice or enjoy. Roses really do smell great, by the way.

Then, you need to make this appreciative approach to roses and life a habit. There’s no need to ignore the ugliness in the world, but you have to habitually see the beautiful things.

Start writing down every positive thing that happens to you, and all the things you like. I recommend buying a journal just for writing about gratitude. Do this until you start automatically seeing the good things in life. If you’ve ever bought a white car, and started seeing white cars all over, you know how awareness can alter your perception of reality.

To see wonderful things all over, train yourself to look for them.

When you are in the habit of “counting your blessings,” gratitude, and a much richer experience of life is the natural result. The Great Spirit Honors you when you count your blessings. You will find you are receiving more out of life then you ever did before once you develop a gratitude attitude.

I am grateful that you took the time to read this message.

Guardian Angel Day October 02, 2012


It is wonderful to acknowledge our Guardian angels and this tradition has been around for centuries. What is the purpose of this feast day?

• To thank God that He has given each one of us a guardian angel to guide us to good thoughts, works and words and to preserve us from evil.
• To inspire us with gratitude to the protector archangels like Michael, who do us such great good, and to incite us to efforts to render ourselves worthy of their guardianship.
• To be with us at the moment of our deaths, and to guide us to God.

Interestingly, the entire month of October, among other honorees, is devoted to angels. Make it a point to talk to your angel any day this month. Ask that you get to know your angel better. You’ll never have a finer friend!

Dare to Ask

What do you want? What are your desires right now, next month, next year? If you know specifically your goals in life, have the courage to make a plan, and feel comfortable to ask God for what you need to complete your plan, you are a rare person. Most of us are reluctant to put a voice to our goals and ask for help with our plans, because daring to ask is foreign to our nature.

We Have Issues

We must be willing to ask for what we want. The issue in asking is the fear of rejection and disappointment. We fear we do not deserve enough, thin enough, strong enough, or even smart enough to know what we want, so we let our friends and families dictate what is best for us. Bull! If you want more out of life, decide right now to dare to ask, because you deserve miracles!

Do Your Exercises

If you want more out of life, decide right now and ask. Start by asking yourself what is most important to you. Then, start by giving yourself what you want as much as you can. I always suggest to folks that they start with little things, like I want a cup of tea, or a walk in the park, or a bubble bath, and then work up to the big things, like a new car or house. The beauty of this exercise is that the more you dare to ask, and the more you dare to give yourself, the more you discover about yourself.

And, if you’re not sure you want what you think you want, then ask the angels for help in getting clear about what you want…

Dare to ask for what you want… and then dare to ask God and the angels for help! The angels are listening, waiting for your requests so they can swing into action. When you dare to ask, you open yourself up for help from legions of angels – and to miracles!

Ask, for the highest good of all, and it shall be given unto you.

Find out which Archangel was assigned to you the day you were born!! This is fun and very enlightening.

The Whale Who Said “Thank You”

If you read a recent front page story of the SF Chronicle, you would have read about a female humpback whale that had become entangled in a spider web of crab traps and lines. She was weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle to stay afloat. She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body, her tail, her torso, a line tugging in her mouth.

A fisherman spotted her just east of the Farallon Islands (outside the Golden Gate) and radioed an environmental group for help.

Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so bad off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her.

They worked for hours with curved knives and eventually freed her.

When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like joyous circles.

She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, and nudged them, pushed them gently around: she was thanking them. Some said it was the most beautiful experience of their lives.

The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth said her eyes were following him the whole time, and he will never be the same.

May you, and all those you love, be so blessed and fortunate to be surrounded by people who will help you get untangled from the things that are binding you.

And, may you always know the joy of giving and receiving gratitude.
I pass this on to you, my friends, in the same spirit.
