How to Find The Joy In Being A Caregiver

Does caring for others bring you Joy?  Would you like to have more Fun as you Focus on taking Care of someone else?

How do you think doing this would make you feel?  Close your eyes, take a deep breath in and let it out.  Imagine that as you are caring for someone you are allowing yourself to experience more joy.  Does this also make you feel more energized? Would you like to create this feeling more often, especially as you continue caring for others?

“Joy is the holy fire that keeps our purpose warm and our intelligence aglow.” 

~Helen Keller

The most important step you need to take is to value yourself enough to take the time to make finding joy an essential part of your day as you care for others.  It takes a conscious decision and a willingness to practice finding joy in the middle of all the routine tasks that come with your role as a caregiver. The more you do, you will be able to clearly know and have the energy for the tasks that need your immediate attention.

“The path of joy involves valuing yourself 

and monitoring where you put your time.”

~Sanaya Roman

By allowing yourself to experience more joy, no matter what you are doing or who you are with, you will be able to uplift those you are caring for as well.  As the Law of Attraction states, “like attracts like” and “what you focus on expands.” Therefore, your joyful energy and a good sense of humor will pleasantly affect everyone in your world including those you are caring for.

“Joy is increased by spreading it to others.” 

~Robert Murray McCheyne

To help you become successful at applying the Law of Attraction to have more fun and experience more joy, especially as a caregiver, you can use this simple process. 

  • Create a list of at least 3 things that you love to do that make you feel more joyful as a caregiver.  Leave space in between to write more about each item.

  • Below each of these things you listed above, write down why you enjoy doing each one.

  • Then put down how doing each one makes you feel.  Be specific.

  • Now ask yourself what stops you from doing the things you enjoy more often as you care for others.

  • Find a way to easily incorporate doing each one of them in your daily routine. Be creative.

  • Promise yourself to have fun doing them on a regular basis. 

  • Leave time to follow spontaneous inspired action that adapts the way you continue to incorporate doing each one

  • Start a Success Journal and keep track of the results you experience from doing this process.

  • Be open to new ideas and ways to find the joy in being a caregiver.

As you regularly practice doing this process, you will have more fun and find more joy as you continue to care for others.  

“There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.” 

~Khalil Gibran

How to Empower Your Life by Reinventing the White Horse Syndrome!

 

Do you allow yourself to be continuously hurt by others you have somehow idolized?  Have you put them on a pedestal, made into a knight in shining armor or a perfect princess?  Then when they show their unique human side, you become devastated thinking that they aren’t who you thought they were.  You are not alone. It is often referred to as the White Horse Syndrome.  The Urban Dictionary describes this as, “A condition in which a person’s frame of thought in all things romantic is completely dream oriented and not grounded in reality.”

As children growing up, we learned to do this from fairytales and the example of adults in our lives. However, these experiences were there to teach us how to use our imagination and empower us to become the unlimited, deliberate creators we came here to be.  It was never intended for us to give our power away to another human being that we had imagined to be everything we could never become like. By desperately trying to become like them or somehow fit into their life, we end up losing ourselves in the process. The real pain is that we desert our true selves and get lost in a romantic dream that isn’t grounded in reality.

The truth is, No one is here to rescue you from reality or save you from anything, including yourself.  There isn’t anything you need to be rescued from. As you stay grounded and present in each moment, connected to your own Divine Guidance, you are perfectly safe.  You will know everything you need to know to create your Heart’s Desires.

How do you reinvent the White Horse Syndrome?  These six steps will help you to empower your life by staying grounded and connected to your own Dreams.  You will then be able to get back on your own White Horse and tap into the unlimited possibilities you can become and create.

  1. Embrace yourself as Divinely Perfect just as you are.  There is nothing to change or improve.  You are more than enough. Love all parts of yourself for who you are as a human being.  The perceived good and bad are both parts of your path to wholeness. 

  2. Honor your feelings, and allow yourself to feel them.  Denying your feelings will only take you further away from who you truly are.  This can cause you to believe that you aren’t good enough, that there is something wrong with you, or that others have what you are missing.

  3. Embrace others as being Divinely Perfect just as they are.  Allow them to be human beings doing the best they can under their present circumstances, just like you are.  This doesn’t mean you have to like or even approve of every part of their personality, or actions. Just know that who they truly are goes far deeper than they will ever show most people.

  4. See others you admire as Mirrors reflecting all that you already are or have the capacity to become.  You are not them, but you couldn’t see something you like or love about them if you didn’t already possess that same quality or have the capacity to become more like it.  Use that reflection to encourage you to be your own unique version of what you see and appreciate in others. 

  5. Forgive and Let Go of anything anyone does that doesn’t turn out to be the way you thought it should be.  Accept that none of us have the whole picture. Hold onto the vision that somehow everything happens for the highest good of all. 

  6. Put everyone back up on their own white horse, including yourself.  See them as perfect, being Divinely guided to follow their own path and live their true purpose.  We are all doing our best and deserve each other’s compassion, including our own.

When we follow these steps, we are choosing to see the Highest truth for all. We are doing our best to keep riding that White Horse of our own dreams every day.

How to use the Law of Attraction to Continue to Create the Spirit of Christmas Throughout the New Year!

 

Did you think Christmas was over?  Just when you were feeling So Good…!

The feelings Christmas creates never have to end!  They can be the beginning of a wonderful opportunity to continue to share our JOY, LOVE, and PEACE with others and ourselves throughout the New Year.  

During the Christmas season we are often filled with the Spirit of Giving, Receiving, Peace, Love, and Joy. By using the Law of Attraction we can carry that spirit forward into the New Year. 

These six simple processes and techniques can help you Enjoy using the Law of Attraction to continue to create more of that Spirit of Christmas throughout the New Year:

  • Start and end each day with Gratitude.  Create a Gratitude Journal by using a special notebook or paper that feels meaningful to you.  Write down at least 5 things you are grateful for right after you wake up in the morning and right before you go to bed at night.

  • Take at least 5 to 10 minutes to Meditate twice a day.  Every morning after you wake up and every night before you go to bed, take time to meditate by breathing and reconnecting with the Truth of Who You Are as an unlimited spiritual being and powerful creator.

  • Use the Power of your Intention to Pre Pave Your Day for Success.  See it filled with more Peace, Love, Joy, and Abundance every step of the way.  Write down exactly what you want to happen and how you want to feel as you are creating your to-do list at night or before you start your day.

  • Practice Pivoting Your Thoughts to ones that Feel Better.  Develop your ability to be more aware of what you are thinking each moment.  Then find better feeling thoughts to replace the ones that aren’t supporting how you want to feel and what you want to create in your life.

  • Let Go of what you can’t take care of or change and Focus on the Divine Perfection in Everything.  Your perspective and focus are where you begin to create what happens next.  Choose where you want to hold your attention and what you want to believe about Your Future.  As you change your perspective, what you experience and the way you feel about it will also improve.

  • Sincerely ASK for what you Want,  BELIEVE with all of your Heart, and Open up to  RECEIVE with Total Gratitude.  Check out my previous article, Three Simple Things You Need To Do To Get What You Want for Christmas and Throughout the New Year” to help you continue to more easily attract the Desires of your Heart.

Applying any one or all of these Law of Attraction processes and techniques will help you continue to create more JOY, LOVE, PEACE and that Spirit of Christmas throughout the New Year.  I encourage you to follow your own inner guidance and do whatever feels best to you.

As my editor and good friend, Tara Soliz says, “Don’t pack up your joy and put it away with your Christmas decorations”.

Three Simple Things You Need To Do To Get What You Want for Christmas and Throughout the New Year!

Do you remember when you were a child at Christmas?  Did you ever really want a toy, or doll so much that having it and playing with it was all you could think about?  

One Christmas, when I was about 6 years old, I wanted a Beauty Shop Doll I saw at the grocery store so bad that frequently my parents would lose track of me while they were shopping and would always find me spellbound as I was gazing at this same doll on display on the shelf above the apples and carrots in the produce department.  As I focused on her so intently, I imagined how much fun it would be to have and play with her and all the cool stuff that came with her!  

When I asked my parents if I could have her for Christmas, they told me that since my dad was out of work they couldn’t afford to buy me the doll of my dreams.   That didn’t stop me from continuing my imaginary playtime while at the store. Even though they also told me that Santa wasn’t real, I believed that somehow I would receive my Beauty Shop Doll!  

All I did was Sincerely ASK, BELIEVE with all my Heart and on Christmas Eve, I did RECEIVE her!  I was so Totally Grateful!  It was such an incredible experience that I still remember it as if it happened yesterday!

As kids, we understood how the Law of Attraction works, even though we didn’t know what to call it.  After we grew up, we put aside this simple, amazing truth along with our dolls and other toys. I know I did.  

Years later when I was studying to become a Law of Attraction life coach, my husband had to have emergency Open Heart Surgery. At that time, we were both unemployed, didn’t have any savings or medical insurance and couldn’t afford the surgery and medical care he needed to save his life.  Every hour of every day, I was absorbed with thoughts of it all working out. Even though I had been told it wouldn’t and we would have to sell our house and do whatever it took to pay off his medical bills, I Sincerely Asked and Believed with all my Heart that somehow the money would just appear as I followed my own inner guidance.  

After 5 months, my husband was recovering and we Received a letter saying that his hospital bill and doctor bills were all written off!   It was Absolutely Amazing! I was Totally Grateful and it reminded me about what happened that Christmas years ago.  I realized that what worked for me then still works for me now as an adult.   Now I know it is called the Law of Attraction!  

This Christmas Season and throughout the New Year, I encourage you to reconnect with your own inner child and remember that God, Goddess, the Universe, All That Is… still wants to deliver your heart’s desires to you too!  

All you have to do are Three Simple Things:

  •  Sincerely ASK

  •  BELIEVE with all of your Heart

  • Open up to  RECEIVE with Total Gratitude!

HOW THE LAW OF ATTRACTION CAN HELP YOU CREATE MORE INNER PEACE DURING THE HOLIDAYS!!!

 

Is it possible to create more inner peace during the holidays?  Could the Law of Attraction help make it easier than it sounds? 

The Law of Attraction is a Universal Law as real as gravity that affects all of us whether we are aware of it or not.  It simply says that like attracts like.   This means that whatever you focus on expands and you attract more of it.  So as you focus on connecting to that feeling of inner peace, you will continue to create more of that same feeling in each moment.

How do you do this, especially during the holidays when there are so many distractions and other things that consume your attention?

First of all, you will need to discover exactly what inner peace feels like to you.  After you get crystal clear about that feeling, it is simply a matter of choosing to use the power of your intention and focus to help you pave the way to feel how you want to feel more often.  

Here is a quick and easy way to discover what inner peace feels like to you

Gently close your eyes and imagine breathing in the essence of that feeling.  Notice its amazing energy flowing through every cell in your body. Continue breathing in and out as you become so focused on experiencing its essence that you feel like you are becoming it.  In this space, you are connecting with yourself in a way that will create more inner peace. 

Choose one or as many of the 11 possible ways listed below to consciously use the power of your intention to continue to create more of that feeling.  

1. One of the best and easiest things you can do to reconnect with the peace that’s always within you is to breathe deeply in and out, focusing on your breath.  You can do this anywhere, anytime no matter what is going on around you.

2. Give yourself permission to say “no”.  Avoid taking action that is forced or that doesn’t feel right to you in the moment.

3. Say “yes” and take action when it feels right and good, and comes from a place of inspiration instead of intellectual analysis.

4. Consider creating new traditions that carry some of the flavors and best feelings from the past, that work better, feel better and are more appropriate for your present situation.

5. Accept where you are at in the moment.  Be real with yourself. For example, if you have a full-time job, a new baby, a sick child and it’s your turn to have the holiday dinner at your house, suggest going out instead. You need the time, space and energy to handle what’s on your plate right now.

6. Be in the present moment.  When things change, “go with the flow”.  Resistance will only drain your energy, so let go of any past, present or future expectations.

7. Use the power of your intention to remain peaceful and focused on your true purpose in the “center of the storm” or chaos happening all around you.

8. Express your gratitude and feel grateful for all that you have been blessed with each day, hour, and moment.

9. Have fun, enjoy, laugh, relax…!  Leave the dishes, create time to be with family and friends.  Love them and share time together.

10. Take time to be alone to love and take care of yourself too.  Stay true to yourself in whatever way you are inspired to, in each moment.  

      What can you do to relax, refresh and renew yourself?  Here are some ideas to help you:

  • Take a hot bath or shower.

  • Meditate. 

  • Do some Yoga or Qi Gong. 

  • Go for a walk in nature.

  • Get away from the present situation and breathe.

  • Go to the gym or exercise.

  • Listen to your favorite music.

  • Watch a movie.

  • Take a nap.

  • Savor a cup of tea…

11. Use any one or all of these five simple Law of Attraction processes daily to help you feel more at peace.  

  • One of the best processes to help you stay focused on how you want to feel is Segment Intending from the book Ask and It Is Given by Abraham Hicks.  Before you go to sleep, or when you wake up in the morning, think about how amazing you want your day to go each step of the way as you feel how good it feels throughout your whole body.   

  • Keeping a Gratitude Journal and listing at least 5 to 10 things you are grateful for each day will also help keep you more positive and peaceful.  

  • Daily Meditation is essential to maintaining your inner focus throughout the day.  Even 5 minutes a day can change your whole perspective and allow the desires of your heart to flow more easily to you.

  • When life happens and you are in a challenging situation, try asking yourself, Wouldn’t It Be Nice if…?,  another Abraham Hicks process from Ask and It Is Given.   By asking yourself, Wouldn’t it be nice if…? and then completing the question with what you want instead, you will feel better.  It will also help you open up to the options you have available to you to start creating the outcome you want.

  •  After thinking about what you want, you can use another Abraham Hicks process called “Turning It Over To The Manager” to be able to more easily release what you don’t have control over.  By letting go of the situation and allowing whatever is for everyone’s highest good to happen, you will reconnect with your own inner peace.  This frees you to be able to stay grounded where you can more easily feel how you want to feel.

There are an unlimited number of possibilities and ways to consciously use your focus and power of intention, as you also work with the Law of Attraction to create more inner peace.  These are only some suggestions. As you follow your own inspiration and do what feels best to you, you also could discover a few more of your own.

The real secret to creating more inner peace during the holidays is simply choosing to use the Law of Attraction to help you stay true to yourself in the middle of all the holiday distractions and demands on your time. 

You will have everything you need to create more inner peace in each holiday moment once you make a conscious choice to follow your own inner guidance and take the actions you are inspired to take to enjoy your life, especially during the holidays!
