OPENING UP TO THE POSSIBILITY OF LOVE ~ Loving our friends is easy, accepting the people we approve of is easy, understanding those who have similar values is easy .. but the greatest gift we ever give ourselves is when we open our hearts to our enemies, when we accept those who make different choices, when we decide we no longer need to control the people we don’t understand and choose to love the person we know inside they really are! ~ ER
Each situation can be improved by …
CHANGING A THOUGHT from despair to hope.
CHANGING WORDS from “I don’t know what to do” to “I’d like to know what to do”.
CHANGING FOCUS from discussing the problems to discovering solutions.
CHANGING ATTITUDES from “life is hard” to “life presents endless opportunities”.
CHANGING BELIEFS from “it’s impossible” to “you never know what might happen”.
CHANGING PHYSICAL POSITION from sitting to standing, inaction to action, clenched muscles to a more relaxed state, breathing shallow to breathing deeper.
CHANGING A CHOICE from one of giving up an addiction to one of taking on better health.
CHANGING LOCATION from being close to what’s activating discomfort to closer to what stimulates peace.
CHANGING A DECISION from letting go the old to allowing in the new.
Change is a natural part of life. Resistance to change is the root cause of emotional suffering, pain and anguish.
I’m growing through the changes, and it’s all good! ~ ER
THE BEST GUIDANCE I’ve Ever RECEIVED … has usually come through events that may “seem” at first like tragedies, problems, trauma and unwanted circumstances.
So instead of fighting it, I surrender, step aside and watch the miracles unfold, as God takes divine care of the things that were never my job to try and control in the first place. ~ ER
Nothing needs to be fixed.
Everything is unfolding perfectly.
I can take it easy now.
Things are always working out for me.
Improvement is natural.
Well-being is natural.
Abundance is natural.
Alignment is natural too.
I can relax in this moment and feel the ease.
I am secure.The universe has my back.
I’m being guided every step of the way.
I’ll feel an impulse when it’s time to act.
I accept my goodness.
I value my worthiness.
I cherish my innate perfection.
I embrace my wholeness.
Source adores me. I adore me.
Peace abounds. Bliss is sublime.
Welcoming in More fun, More freedom, More finances, More flow,
Feeling soothed, comforted and encouraged no matter where I go.
When I connect to the peace inside,
All is truly well in my world.
It’s natural for our bodies to heal, for the grass to grow, for us to feel better after a good nights sleep. It’s natural that we’ll get help when we’re open to receiving it, that the person next to us is also looking for love, that our problems often solve themselves when we relax and trust in the goodness of life.
It’s natural for life to feel good and if it doesn’t feel that way for you yet, find something that gives you relief … getting relief is always a step in the right direction. ~ ER
I HAVE NO NEED TO FIGHT … I would lay down my words peacefully so you can feel better. I have no need to hold grudges … I would place what’s happened in the past and leave it there where it belongs. I have no need to “be right” … inside my soul lies the truth that holds my integrity intact and leaves you the space to discover your own. ~ ER
IT DOESN’T TAKE MUCH … for momentum to swing the other way
a deeper breath,
a lighter thought,
a gentler approach,
a cry for help,
a hearty laugh,
a crazy moment,
a calmed mind,
a soothing word,
a silly smile,
a ridiculous joke,
a different angle,
a relaxed body,
a broader perspective,
a quieter response,
a heartfelt apology,
a moment of connection,
a simple tear.
Gentle change starts here! ~ ER
Expect Good Things To Happen … that everything will work out even better than you thought … that miracles are not only possible, but more than likely … that instead of moving backwards, you are simply moving on … that wonderful delights are on their way to you right now … and that you are about to experience more joy, more freedom, more peace, more bliss, more excitement and more love than ever before.
