“When faced with a decision, choose the path that feeds your soul.” Dorothy Mendoza Row
Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer
It's Election Day in the U.S., so for many of us, "decisions" are at the forefront of our minds today. But, decisions about which leaders to vote for are only a small portion of the decisions that make up our lives. In fact, the small choices we make for ourselves throughout our day can have a great and profound effect on our daily lives. It’s more important than ever that we recognize and know our personal power in creating a life of joy, regardless of the politics at hand.
Who doesn’t want a life filled with more peace and joy? A life that is full of an abundance of health, wealth, and happiness? At our core, we all just want to feel happy and know that we have the freedom to decide for ourselves what that happiness will look like. Regardless of your political stance, this is something almost everyone can agree on. And the best way to get there is by making decisions that feel good for you. In other words, "follow your heart." It may sound cliche, but it's truly the best place to go for guidance when we are faced with tough decisions. When you follow your heart, you reveal who you are to yourself and others. When you listen to the wisdom of your heart, you allow others to see your true nature, and you will always be well served. As a result, your relationships will deepen and you will know that you are loved for who you really are. Your intuition will guide you most lovingly in creating the your most magnificent life. This is the place from which your very best decisions will always be made.
Only you know what is "right" for you, what represents your personal truth, and what brings you joy. Follow your heart to determine the choices that make you feel good and are aligned with your vision for life. Are you taking care of yourself when you make that decision? Are you feeling empowered to speak your truth from a place of love, calm, and wise knowing? Is this decision going to be what’s right for you?
Think with your heart! Remember, you create your life based on how you feel, so feeling lots of love is essential. When you feel love consistently and intensely you create situations and people in your life that offer joyful outcomes. So, if you want to create from new and higher levels of love, you must hold more positive, loving, and joyful thoughts. Just go within and ask for support from your heart. Your Source of Infinite Power, LOVE, resides within and will show you the way. The feeling of love is the power that fuels it all!
Make sure your answer is "YES" to these 3 important questions before proceeding with your decision. Get quiet with yourself, find your calm or meditate by focusing on your heart before you ask. Your mind, body, and soul are asking for quiet time to receive insights and answers. Even a small amount of time devoted to meditation or quiet will reap rewards and bring you great gifts. This doesn’t require any formal training at all. Just close your eyes, put your hand on your heart, breathe love in and breathe love out. Now listen for the answers to these questions as you think about the decision you have made:
1. Am I following my heart?
2. Does it make me feel good and bring peace to my body and calm to my mind?
3. Does making this decision get me closer to my goals and deepest desires, and help me live the life of my dreams?
Learn to make only promises that you want to make and that you can keep. Say "yes" when you have truly discerned that it makes you feel good. Sometimes this can also mean saying "no" to things or to people that take your time and energy. Respect and honor yourself first, as you take your priorities and commitments into consideration. Be sure they are your dreams and not those of others around you. And know that, just as the opportunity you may be graciously saying "no" to isn’t a good fit for you, it will be a great fit for someone else.
Take actions and make commitments because you want to, because they make your heart sing. Do it because you know it will move you toward the life of your dreams. Once you prioritize your decisions and time this way, you will amazingly have more love and energy available for others.
To take yourself to this new level of self-care you may need to create a new perspective. How? Repeat this affirmation frequently:
“Only when I love myself fully and intensely, can I love others more than ever before! I am so grateful for the essence of who I am, and I love my self intensely. I make great decisions that always have a loving outcome for myself and everyone involved!"
This is the path to creating great and wonderful experiences in your life. Now you will also feel the joy of positively impacting others. This is when everyone begins to thrive. It leads to all kinds of wonder as you make decisions that will keep you on the path of creating the life of your dreams.
Have an absolutely magical week full of love, gratitude, and fun, fun, FUN!
