Rekindling The Spirit of Love in Christmas

1218162

The true meaning of the holidays is one of joy, love, peace, and happiness. Cultivate a child-like awe and appreciation and have a joyous holiday!  Here’s a call to shift gears and reclaim what should be a time of appreciation, excitement, joy, and peace. Make up your mind that this is going to be your happiest holiday season ever. Your decision to emphasize the positive can reclaim a season that is supposed to bring out the best in us, rather than becoming a stressful time. The truth is that this time of year offers us a wonderful opportunity to rekindle the spirit of love and living life to the fullest.  Here are a few tips to remind yourself.

  • I’ll let the holidays flow, rather than trying to make them fit into a fixed schedule.
  • I’ll remember that people are more important than things.
  • I’ll relax my expectations for myself and others this year.
  • I’m going to live in the present moment and enjoy each activity for itself instead of always thinking about what is ahead of me.
  • I’m going to approach the holidays with a sense of joyful anticipation and wonder, just like I did when I was a child.

This life is a miracle, each and every particle of it, and the holiday season is a celebration of the miraculousness of it all.  Merry Christmas from my home to yours……. Share the joy of the love that fills your heart.

Mastering Today – A Journey To Freedom

Hello, my name is Darlene Robbins and I would like to personally invite you to “Mastering Today”  I live in Fort Walton Beach Florida and I am on what I call a “Journey To Freedom”.  My journey began in 2009 when I began to study The Universal Spiritual Laws, The Law of Attraction and more,  which has enlightened my life so much by recognizing the mind/body connection.  Through the teachings,  I have learned to live in the moment and avoid trying to control people, things or situations that are out of my control.  My goal is to reach others and help them realize this.

We Don’t Have to Forget In Order to Forgive!

To help you move toward forgiveness ask yourself this question.  “Why do I want to feel the way I feel when I think about that person or situation”.  That was a profound question for me.  It made me realize that not forgiving only created suffering for me.  I cannot and will not believe that anybody wants to feel anger, betrayal, vindictiveness, utter heartache, etc.  I began by thinking that if I forgive and let it go than the other person does not get any satisfaction, but the truth is, I learned that we touch others when we can move to a place of forgiveness.  That gentle peace that you give someone else by letting them know you have forgiven them is probably one of the most divine precious gifts that you are able to give someone and it may result in transforming their life for the better.  Which person do you want to be, the angry victim or the divine soul that opened someones heart.  I choose the later.  This does not mean you have to forget the act.  I know for me personally, the mistakes I have made were because I did not know how to cope or ask for help due to shame, guilt and fear and I suspect that is the same place others come from with their mistakes.  Here are some of the best forgiveness quotes I have read, my favorite is the third one by Marianne Williamson.  Let me know which is your favorite.

 “As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in prison.” ―Nelson Mandela

 “Forgive yourself for not knowing what you didn’t know before you learned it.” ―Maya Angelou

 “The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world.” ―Marianne Williamson

“If we really want to love, we must learn how to forgive.” ―Mother Teresa

 “If her past were your past, her pain your pain, her consciousness your consciousness, you would think and act exactly as she does. With this realization comes forgiveness, compassion, and peace.” ―Eckhart Tolle

“Forgiveness is an act of self-love.” ―Don Miguel Ruiz.

 “Forgiveness in no way requires that you trust the one you forgive.” ―Wm. Paul Young

“The spike of defensiveness we feel when someone advises us to ‘forgive and forget’ shows how deep our pain has burrowed. Although the people who advise us to do this may have the best intentions, forgiveness cannot be done on command.” ―Sharon Salzberg

 “Forgiveness is giving up the hope that the past could have been any different.” ―Oprah Winfrey

“The act of forgiveness takes place in our own mind. It really has nothing to do with the other person.” ―Louise Hay

Staying Positive In A Negative Environment

Do you try to start your day by setting an intention to have positive thoughts and emotions, only to encounter rude or negative people in your daily life?  Too often it’s easy to be influenced by the people that surround you. You may start out in a great mood, but quickly find yourself spiraling down because of negativity being tossed your way by others. What can you do about it? First, remember that you don’t have to absorb other people’s moods and attitudes. It is possible to mentally and emotionally step back from them and put up your guard. Before you can do that, however, you need to take a more active role in choosing your own mood and mind-set, if you haven’t already. This involves consciously choosing a positive mind-set to start the day, and repeatedly reinforcing it throughout the day by choosing positive emotions, and using positive self-talk.   When I’m surrounded by negativity I like to remind myself  to have compassion for negative people. While it is unpleasant to be around negative people, it is far more unpleasant to be a negative person. Each of these people are highly troubled. They perceive themselves as victims of hostile life forces beyond their control. They feel helpless and afraid. The most belligerent of them are the most fearful, paranoid actually, despite their outward bluster. Anger is always an expression of fear and perceived vulnerability.  Balance the negative aspects of your life with more powerful positive aspects. If your job is filled with negative influences, it is all the more important that your family life be positive. Cultivate friends with positive attitudes. Join groups that are populated by very positive people.  Remember that you can choose to end any relationship. Everything is a balancing act, we have to weigh the good with the bad, set healthy boundaries and remove ourselves from situations that cause us pain or harm.  Below are some books if you would like to look into this topic further, simply click on the image and explore.  See how I changed my life, read my story.  CLICK HERE LEARN MORE ABOUT MY BOOK.  

Letting Go Of Today

saved_collage_58910d72-54a6-4ea8-b10d-81801ba8723aI like to reflect upon my day each evening.  I try to make time to sit quietly and look back on the day, the good things and the things I could have done better.  I acknowledge them and accept them and then I put them away,  which allows me to start a new day stronger and better by seeing the good and the mistakes that I did.
