Positive Attitudes With A Baking Twist

Success

Golden   This short blurb on success is by Travis De Luca.

One of the parts I discuss when presenting talks on success is, “We can only receive into our life what we see ourselves receiving.”  If we are not liking what we see in our life experience it is time to change our perception of self and situations. Life can only mirror back to us what we believe and accept as true about self and our world of experience, whether it is true or not.  Just some basics to think about.

Today’s Positive Thought

Tday Flwrs   Today’s Positive Thought is by Jay.

There are times we need to retreat to our inner cave and realize our worthiness to live a better life in order to release whatever we are holding onto that is keeping us where we are…time to let go of anger, hate, upset, negativity, etc. be it toward ourself or others or a situation-personal and/or professional.  There will be tears and a feeling of relief and perhaps it will be accompanied by sadness as we say goodbye to the old ways that have held us back…a symbolic death and rebirth to a new and more vibrant life.  Where I live it is Spring, and life is expressing itself by the beautiful rebirth of colors in the flowers, trees and in the bright sunny days with a gentle caressing breeze filled with the aroma of life.  Let the beauty of Spring and rebirth fill you and guide you into a new way of living and expressing your life.  Jay

 

Are You Kitchen Brave? Part 1 of 2

  

Are you kitchen brave?  Are you brave enough to be you in the kitchen of life?  Are you willing to walk into the kitchen of your mind to experiment and create your own unique recipe for success, prosperity and overall well-being?  Are you ready to break some eggs and mix things up? If so, continue reading and get ready to bake up some new exciting recipes for life.

We are always creating through our cooking, our baking, our thoughts and beliefs. Life has given each of us a mind and every moment of every day we have a variety of thoughts that shape our character.  Our thoughts, beliefs and concepts are the batter and dough of our life, we are forever taking the formless and giving it form.  From the mixing bowl of thought to the oven of life to solidify our creation.  We live in the kitchen of life, the kitchen of personal creation.

Creating recipes in the kitchen are about learning from what works in a recipe and what does not.  Some of our creations don’t turn out the way we planned and we have to go back to the recipe and make changes learning what will work to bring forth our desired creation.  Life is about learning what works for us and what does not.  From this learning experience we can enhance our life in prosperous and successful ways.

If we are truly interested in making our lives more fulfilling and more reflective of a robust and prosperous life then we must step into the kitchen of our mind and begin to create and bake a new way of manifesting the life we want, no more sitting at the kitchen table with a glass of ice cold milk waiting for the cookies to be set in front of us. It is time to be proactive and get our hands covered in flour and roll out the dough, ready the oven and get ourselves in gear.  Get your apron ‘cause this is gonna be one heck of a baking session. 

Basic ideas/inspiration can be gained from; books, quotes, perhaps a platitude or two, or positive affirmations and informative articles which can begin to stir the creative juices. But until we decide to do something with these inspiring pieces we will only have the warm fuzzies and nothing more. Time to utilize our inborn talents and abilities and make the life we dream of and desire. The time has arrived to take action for our own self-improvement, which in turn will affect the world around us in positive ways. Time to get into the kitchen and create the cookie of your dreams!

Get out the electric mixer, flour, eggs, milk, butter, sugar, vanilla extract, baking powder and baking soda, the basics of the recipe.  We all have the basics at our finger tips; the challenge is what we are going to use to make it our own unique recipe. Are we going to use ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon extract, almond extract, add nuts or poppy seeds?  The combinations are endless and we can create the recipes we desire and if it is not to our liking we can change it up and make it better.  It is merely a batter of mind, no pun intended.  When we have mixed the ingredients together it becomes a batter or dough, to create a cake, a cupcake, a cookie or a jelly roll, perhaps cinnamon buns, the choice is always ours. What do you feel like today?

Opportunities

   The week is alive with opportunities!  

Be observant and take your cues from what is going on around you; from what you hear and see; from the smallest or least to the major events and situations…life is forever giving us a cue to snap up an opportunity to improve our life. 

Remember to keep an open mind and listen to that inner nudge.

Have a week filled with wonderful and unexpected opportunities leaping out at you!

YEAH!!

The Pool

   The pool…a great summer relaxer; a place to cool off, exercise, have weekend get togethers, BBQ’s, clam bakes, and if no one is looking, skinny dipping on a starlit night, but I digress. 

Yet, in order to enjoy the pool we have to prepare it for the summer festivities.  Removing the pool cover and inflated pillows from a green slime environment is not always the best or easiest of chores after a long winter.  It requires hard work and elbow grease to remove the slime, scrub it down with acid, and adding a new coat of paint to really clean and dress up the pool for the new fresh water that we will be filling it with for summer fun.  But all the hard work pays off in the end and soon we put the memory of cleaning behind us and enjoy the benefits of the pool.

Bet you are waiting for the analogy, well here it is.  The pool and cover represent our mind which lays dormant with old ideas, thoughts, beliefs and concepts closed up and covered in a green slime.  In order for a fresh new start one must begin the cleaning up with diligence and purpose for the fresh water, new fluidic thoughts, ideas, and concepts  to give us a new, invigorating, successful life.  Like the pool we remove the scum, drain out the stagnant thoughts, and create a new receptive consciousness to receive our greater good…this means skinny dipping.  What?  Skinny dipping! In other words, stripping off the old and diving into the new water for an invigorating experience and life.  Time to stand naked in the sun (figuratively) and let the rays of life give us new beginnings…time to bloom into who and what we really are…winter is gone, time to spring into summer with that new mental outfit.  You look marvelous, darling!

Life honors us as we honor ourselves.  

We are empowered and given the abilities/talents to be; successful, wealthy, healthy, wise, joyous, and happy.  How much is up to  us.

You were created to experience the highest and best life has to offer, don’t ever doubt or forget it!!

You and everyone else has a purpose.  You give meaning to life just by being and by being and expressing your creative persona you enhance your life experiences which allows you to share with others your good fortune. Life is both give and take, take and give; it is a circle.  Life, the creative intelligence of the universe, desires to give to us in abundance and in order to receive we must be willing to take, receive, through the power of our thoughts and beliefs.  Then, as we receive we give back to the world around us and complete the circle.  Also, another key is increasing our self-worth and self-acceptance…there is a huge difference between knowing our worth and accepting ourselves and ego tripping…a really big no no!

This summer, stay as  positive as possible about yourself, others, situations and events.  Remember to utilize your intuition and act, not react.  

I wish you a wonderful summer experience and a pool filled the invigorating waters of life.

Today’s Positive Thought

   Today’s Positive Thought is by Jay.

As we align our thoughts with what we want, and not what we do not want, we draw to us those circumstances and situations that will appear in our life for our success in living life.

P.S. Remember the want must be a belief, for we only get what we believe.
