You Have Two Choices

Did you know that you make 35,000 decisions in a day? How you make those decisions matters. You can make each decision from your heart or your mind. From a place of love (your heart) or fear (your mind). Often times we make decisions out of pattern, we do what we’ve done before because it’s easy and we don’t have to think about it. These kinds of decisions are made out of fear. Anything pattern related has to do with the mind (fear). You will always have two choices, love or fear. You get to choose how you make each of your 35,000 decisions every day. If you are deciding what to wear, or what to eat, you’ll always have the same two choices. If you’re making a decision about what route to take to work, or scheduling your day, you will have the same two choices. The same goes for decisions having to do with your career or relationships (friends, family, intimate, work). You can choose to make a decision out of love or you can choose to make a decision out of fear. Two very different forms of energy, with two very different results. Why does it matter how you make your decisions?

Time for Play

The energy for May is full of fun, excitement, and play. I’m referring to the kind of play that comes from your heart, true play. Play that comes from your heart has a pure quality to it. Think back to when you were a child. When you played you simply played to play, you didn’t think, “am I doing this right?” or, “how do I look, is someone watching me?” True play is about being in the moment without thoughts of the mind holding you back. When the mind is involved play can sometimes turn into a competition. The mind can also attach goals to play. When a goal is attached to play it means your mind is focused on the future, your mind isn’t in the present moment. Goals aren’t a bad thing, either is competition. When play is rooted in the mind it’s just a different kind of play.

Focus and Balance

Mercury has been in retrograde since March 22nd, it will go direct on April 15th. When mercury is in retrograde we can feel off and out of balance. During this time old patterns can surface, bringing up negative emotions like anger, sadness, depression, and loneliness. This is why I felt it was important to write about focus this month. If you’ve been feeling off and out of balance, having focus can change your whole way of being. Focus gives you direction and a path to follow. When your mind has something positive to focus on, you will feel better. Your thoughts will be positive and in the moment, and you will feel calm and relaxed. 

Feeling Positive

What does it take for you to feel positive? Is it working at a great job, or having an amazing relationship? Maybe it’s finding the perfect house, or buying the newest phone? Most of us feel positive when everything around us feels stable and life is going just how we think it should. When your life isn’t going as you think it should, your mind will begin to think negative thoughts. You might think to yourself, “What did I ever do to deserve this?”, or “Why is this happening to me?” Soon those negative thoughts will create negative feelings. That effect can spiral you into a negative way of being. If life isn’t going so well outside of you how can you feel positive on the inside? 

Mastering Relationships

Mastering a relationship can be a difficult task. You’re dealing with two separate individuals that most likely have two different opinions and backgrounds. A relationship is a commitment which takes time, patience, and effort. Given the right tools your relationship will offer you great rewards. By implementing and maintaining the basic elements listed below, you’ll be able to create a solid foundation. On this foundation, you can build your relationship into something you’ve always dreamed of.

How To Deal With Change

Change naturally happens this time of year. You may have seen change in your job, relationships, or personal life. Maybe your attitude and how you view certain situations has shifted. Even if you feel your life has been unaffected by change, a close friend or family member may have experienced a great deal of change, which will in turn affect you.
