Tuesday, March 26th, 2013 Focus: I choose love and peace as my constant companions.

I take a deep breath, then breathe out any frustration and anger, and choose lightness and peace. I repeat out loud to myself, “I choose love and peace as my constant companions. I am free.”

I take another deep breath, and as I repeat this affirmation, I feel its power come over me. I feel much lighter. My mouth curls up into a smile. My heart beats joyfully. Yes! I am free!

I can choose my attitude, my mood, my aura. I can choose to lighten up the energy I carry with me, simply by focusing on the thoughts of my choice. “I choose love and peace as my constant companions. I am free!” Yes! Yes! YES!

Sunday, March 24th, 2013 Focus: I have much to offer this world, just as I am, at any given moment in my life.

Think back to a time in your life when you felt like “the odd man out” or when things really weren’t going your way. Do similar feelings of “alienation” or frustration haunt you today?

The good news is that there is a way to completely redefine those experiences. A way to reconnect with the irrefutable truth that shouts out: “You are beautiful!”

Your unique make-up and experiences have shaped you into the person that you are meant to be and continue to become. In fact, you have much to offer this world, just as you are, at any given moment in your life.

Saturday, March 16th, 2013 Focus: I owe myself to make the most of the life I am living, and to live in gratitude.

While it may not be possible to be happy every day, learning to steer the mind towards that direction is still possible. The mind may cause great suffering. But it can also be used to create a beautiful life, once mastered and used properly.

Every single of us has reasons to feel sorry for ourselves. Every one of us has suffered. But life doesn’t owe us anything. We only owe ourselves, to make the most of the life we are living, of the time we have left, and to live in gratitude.

The same view you look at every day, the same life, can become something brand new by focusing on its gifts rather than the negative aspects. Perspective is your own choice, and the best way to shift that perspective is through gratitude, by acknowledging and appreciating the positives.

Sunday, March 10th, 2013 Focus: I choose to turn up my efforts at helping others.

It shouldn’t take a holiday for us to remember to be grateful or a new year to inspire resolutions. I resolve right now — and I do this every morning — to turn up my efforts at helping others. I want many more of the warm, fuzzy moments that come when I know my life has made a difference to someone.

I invite you to take the challenge and turn up your efforts as well. I believe that the world improves one person at a time, but collectively we possess a power that’s much more than the sum of its parts. I believe in helping others help themselves, and I know that in doing so, we improve our own lives as well.

There are many places that need you. In giving of yourself, you’ll find that you’re never again alone. As Martin Luther King, Jr., so aptly put it:

Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve . . . You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.

Saturday, March 9th, 2013 Focus: I choose to fill my life with fun, laughter, and love.

The change that is upon us is one of perception. Our perceptions are being enhanced, our intuitions are awakening, our third eyes are dilating, our hearts are open­ing. It is a change of consciousness, of the way we look at the world, of the world itself appearing fundamentally different to us than it does today.

We are shifting into another dimension and, when the dust settles, life will be akin to the feeling you had when you were young; playing with your neighborhood friends around sunset, and your mother calling out and saying that it was time for you to come inside. You were having so much fun. . . . Then your mother remembered there wasn’t any school tomorrow, so she yelled out from the back door that you and your friends could stay out and play for as long as you like.

Remember that? Having so much fun that you didn’t want it to end — ever? That’s the way life is supposed to be, and that is the feeling the new world offers to us.

Friday, March 1st, 2013 Focus: I am training my mind to be at peace.

If the only time, the only way that we could meditate was when it was perfectly quiet and our body was perfectly comfortable to begin with, we would rarely manage to meditate. And what use would it be to us anyway?

So do what you can. Choose a conducive environment and adopt a conducive posture.

But then accept what you are unable to change or alter, and transform any challenges into something that actually supports you as you train your mind to be at peace with what is.
