8/1 Soul Quench

Today’s Soul Quench comes from my favorite little online pick me up “Note from the Universe.”

This morning on my way to work I was feeling a little Blah…Blah… I wanted things to happen faster in my life. So I started to internally shout, protest and become dissatisfied with the world around me. During my train commute I tried playing Candy Crush on my phone, hoping it would take my mind off of my despair. Well, that didn’t work! I lost all my lives in 10 minutes (if you never played this game before…you have been warned, it is very addictive!) which angered me even more, so much so that I wanted to throw my phone on the floor and do the Irish River dance on it. Instead of doing that nonsensical act, I took a few deep breaths so I could come back to my core being. I decided to check my email from my phone and thank God that I did. The first email I seen was from Tut… A Note from the Universe. I opened it up and read the below little nugget of inspiration. It was all I needed to bring everything back into perspective. I love when things fall into my lap serendipitously. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

Tut… A Note from the Universe

Dreams come true, that’s what they do. The only variable is when.

For the slow approach: Resist. Attach. Insist. Deny. Stop. Second guess. Whine. Argue. Defend. Protest. Cry. Struggle. And ask others, when you know the answer yourself.

For the quick approach: Visualize. Pretend. Prepare. Dodge. Roll. Serpentine. Do not waiver over intentions, but over methods. Show up, even when nothing happens. And give thanks in advance.

You knew that,
The Universe

Silencing The Little Bitchy Gremlin

imagesCAZI3QR0

Hello fellow Hunters! Often times I find myself looking down the well of self-doubt. It’s not a view of myself I am most proud of but it happens from time to time. For me it usually comes when I finish writing one of my short stories or when I am about to perform on stage.  That is when that nagging little voice speaks the loudest.

The voice I so lovingly dub “THE LITTLE BITCHY GREMLIN!”

Now this gremlin will take his/her horn, hold it up to my ears and  whisper soothing words like, “you suck,” “you will never make it,” “you’re not talented enough,” “you will never attain your goals,” ” you’re too young for this or too old for that.” Oh and my favorite,” put down those Girl Scout Thin Mints or you will start to resemble Borat in a lime green bathing suit”!

Although, my bitchy little gremlin might have a point on the Thin Mint topic, I have learned how to drown out its wicked little banter.

First, neutralize the negative thoughts by infusing them with inspirational words. No, I am not talking about going all Viola Davis from “The Help” chanting (in my best southern accent) You is Kind, You is Smart, You is Important”… Unless that’s what floats your boat. Then have at it. Instead I take a deep breath and repeat the phrase “I choose my happiness, my doubt is based on fear not fact and I release it.”  Then I think of all the things both past and present, that inspires me and made want to become a writer and a dancer…Then I smile!

Lastly, I put on my playlist called “Feel Good Music (sorry no creative name there)” in my iTunes library. These are all the songs that either makes me want to immediately jump up and dance or the words inspire me to keep on moving.

I encourage you to find those few things in life that will keep you revved up and passionate about your journey towards your goals, in other words, capture your own little butterfly.

Here is a sneak peek of my playlist.

1. Summer sun – Koop
2. Closer to my dreams – Goapele
3. Coming Back Around – Pete Simpson
4. Empire State of Mind – Alicia Keys and Jay – Z
5. Breathe – Telepopmusik
6. Journey – Don’t Stop Believing (best karaoke song!)
7. Run the World (Girls) – Beyoncé
8. Love and Happiness – La India (version)
9. Feeling Good – The Quantic Soul Orchestra Feat. Alice Russell
10. Don’t Stop Dancing Girl – Kaskade Feat. Haley

Bonus: Ride to California ~ Paper Tongues (I am obsessed with this song)

A Wonderland of Miracles!

Today’s inspiration and Book recommendation comes from Neale Donald Walsch’s Book “When God Steps in, Miracles Happen”.

In miracle working, you must be prepared to ignore the evidence of your own eyes, you must close up your ears. And you must be out of your mind. If you are in your head, if you are in your mind, you will think your way right out of the miracle. When you perform miracles, you do the unthinkable.

Now, in order to do any of this, you must understand it. You must understand that Reality is not what it seems to be. You must be clear that we live in an Alice in Wonderland world, in which we all live by agreement that what is Real is not real, and that what is Not Real is real. And you must understand that, as in Wonderland, everyone is making it all up. But here’s what they don’t tell you. The one who is the most convincing is the one most likely to have it his own way.
