Random Thoughts... Allowing the Imagination...

"The greatest gift that you were ever given was the gift of your imagination."

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

Words I just shared with you. And words that I am about to write down on a piece of paper as I start a new page, a new chapter, a new book...

With words, written by hand. and words written from the heart... or maybe better said, words written to the heart.

I am going to use my greatest gift and my greatest power... I am going to use my imagination as I sit down to write my desires, my dreams, my manifestations and my prayers for the coming year. I am going to allow myself to be all the more bold, and all the more courageous with what it is I want to create and live and taste and experience and devour and accomplish and share and give and receive and become...

I am going to allow my imagination to take me on journeys not only on the maps of this world, but on the map of me and my heart and my destiny. I am going to let my imagination take me by the hand and guide me... And I am going to live a beautiful dance between surrendering and allowing life to unfold itself, but in the same breath to believe all the more and strive all the more and become all the more. I believe life waits to see if we have the courage to dance wildly and beautifully on our own before life joins us on the floor and starts to passionately tango and waltz and sway with us.

It was once said, "If you take one step to God, God takes ten steps towards you." And I believe sometimes, that first step is taken when we dare to imagine.

So I am going to imagine beautiful journeys and travels. I am going to imagine love greater than I ever dared believe I could give and be. I am going to imagine how beautiful it feels when I raise the veil of smallness and step into the glory of greatness. I am going to imagine more writing. More writing for myself, more writing for the world. I am going to imagine being published and I am being bold and courageous in even just saying that and allowing myself to speak those words out loud and not delete those words silently. I am going to imagine delighting and embracing more and more of my femininity. I am going to imagine more celebration my femininity. I am going to imagine how lightly and full of grace and ease my days can be lived. I am going to imagine my courage. I am going to imagine how magical it is to allow myself to fall... To fall into love and to fall into the sky and into open fields and fall into place and fall into life.  I am going to imagine my mornings of yoga and meditation and realising when I begin my days holy and sacred and centered, I live my days as such. I am going to imagine the liberty of being fearless. I am going to imagine abundance and how it flows to me and from me like the beautiful lull of the sea. An endless sea. I am going to imagine living in all the more gratitude. I am going to imagine and imagine and imagine... My greatest gift. And my greatest power.

And in writing these words here to you, and in the moment I sit down to write those words by hand and heart to myself, I am carving them in stone. I am bringing them to life and giving them breath. I am manifesting and allowing. I am creating and becoming.

This will be how the one chapter ends and the next chapter begins...

With my greatest gift. With my greatest imagination.

And with thanking you.


Much Loves,

Angela.

Make Mistakes...


"I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You are doing things you have never done before, and more importantly, you are doing something. So that is my wish for you, and all of us. And my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody has ever made before. Do not freeze, do not stop, do not worry that it is not good enough, or it is not perfect, whatever it is. Art, or love, or work or family or life. Whatever it is you are scared of doing, do it. Make your mistakes. Next year and forever and ever."

You Are Free...


"Close the door on old, painful memories. Close the door on old hurts, old self-righteous unforgiveness. You might take an incident in the past where there was pain and hurt, something that is hard for you to forgive or look at. Ask yourself, "How long do I want to hold onto this? How long do I want to suffer because of something that happened in the past?" Now imagine a stream in front of you and take this old experience, this hurt, this pain, and put the whole incident in the stream and see it begin to dissolve and drift away until it disappears. You have the ability to let go. You are free."

You Are Amazing...


"Hey You. Yes you. Stop being unhappy with yourself. You are perfect. Stop wishing you looked like someone else, or wishing people liked you as much as they like someone else. Stop trying to get attention from those who hurt you. Stop hating your body, your face, your personality, your quirks. Love them. Without those things you wouldn't be you. And, why would you want to be anyone else? Be confident with who you are. Smile. It will draw people in. If anyone hates on you because you are happy with yourself, then you stick your middle finger in the air, and say, "Screw it! My happiness will not depend on others anymore.". Life is too short to be perfect. Love your imperfections, they make you, you. And you are amazing."

Random Thoughts...


What is a gift of Love that you can give to yourself?

I believe when we give, we receive the most...

But that is not only the magic that happens when we give to others...

It's also the magic that happens when we give to ourselves.


When we give ourselves time.

And we give ourselves permission... To say yes. To say no.

Or to dare ourselves to dream a little more. And a little bigger.

When we give ourselves appreciation and acknowledgement.

For all we have done, rather left undone.

And for when we give ourselves forgiveness.

Because forgiveness always begins with us.

When we give ourselves courage.

And when we give ourselves the strength to let go.

Or give ourselves the bravery of saying hello.

Because at the end of the day, it's all about Love.

Whatever we do, it's all about Love.

And that too, is what we should give ourselves.


What is a gift of Love that you can give to yourself?

Take a Moment...






Prayer isn't always about falling down on your knees.

It's about taking a moment, and being aware of the moment, in the moment. It's about finding a space of calm. Within. It's like having a conversation with your best friend. Sharing the day, sharing the hopes, sharing the fears. It's that moment when you know you can unveil what's inside, and every word is heard and felt and touched and trusted. And sometimes, prayer is simply listening, as though you are saying, I am here.

Prayer isn't always about falling down on your knees. Maybe it is more about opening your heart.

Take a moment to pray today.

The Paradox of Our Time...

The Paradox of Our Time...

"The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We've conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things.

We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships.

These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose to make a difference or to carry on as though you have never read it...

Remember, to spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.

Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember, to say, "I love you" to your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person might not be there again. Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind."

Living...


How to be a better, happier and healthier human being.

"Never touch anything with half of your heart. Be present, endlessly loving and compassionate towards others. Confront any challenging situation first with a deep breath. Wander. Remember that your own happiness and comfort comes above all things. Before reacting, try understanding. Eat breakfast every morning. Find the faces in the flowers. Remember what is important to you. Treat your body kindly. Be honest. Get to know yourself. Take things at your own pace. Do not be embarrassed to feel, laugh, cry, sing or love. Remember that what is right for someone else may not be what is right for you. And that is okay. Never be ashamed or afraid to ask for help. Do what you love. Remember that you always have a choice. Find joy in what life really is, living."
