Hello my loved ones!!! It has been many months since I have posted and after reflecting on why I haven’t…it comes down to living and doing. Let’s see if I can get these thoughts out into a cohesive blog entry:) The way I see it is that I was getting a lot of my community fix over the years on the internet. Yes, I was getting out and participating in a social life as well, but I was getting a lot of my emotional feedback from talking ‘about’ life instead of mindfully living it. I have been doing so much lately in life that I am so excited to share, but my mind got out of the mode of thinking about how every situation would turn into a post. A lot of what I have been pondering lately has to do with the healing powers of community. Although one could argue that a cyber community could be healing, what I have found is there is the no replacement for real face to face (in the flesh:) community. Now the tricky part for most people comes down to a couple factors….”Do I even crave communtiy? Where would I find community if I wanted one? To find the answers to these questions we go to churches, book clubs, ladies nights, and every other social event that crosses our evite list;) The kinds of community that feed the soul are ones that we build on our own. We are in the right communtiy when we are gently asked to grow. We all need more retreats and tools to bring into our adult life to help us grow to our potential instead of getting comfy with the potential that we have reached. I talk to so many people that haven’t done a thing lately to stretch their limits, challenge their thoughts by trying something new. We think that because we are all grown up that we shouldn’t have to go get more tools that will help us in turn with our friendships, marriages, parenting, and all the things that are challenging us everyday to grow.
We are always putting out an energy that is attracting people into our lives at all time. Take this quote from the current book that I am reading…(The Power)
“If you are feeling enthusiastic, your frequency of enthusiasm will attract enthusiastic people, situations, and events. If you are feeling fearful, your frequency of fear will attract fearful people, situations, and events to you. You are never left in any doubt about the frequency you’re on because your frequency is always exactly whatever you’re feeling! You can change your frequency at any time by changing how you feel, and everything around you will change because you’re on a new frequency.” What have you been feeling lately? Are you in survival mode, or are you living? What is your community reflecting to you?
Isn’t that something to think about:) I have made the mistake of going into groups thinking that that was my new community. I went into Univera feeling at home and then once I got deep into it I couldn’t hush the burning desire for a deeper sense of community. My mistake was thinking that I had to fit into it, instead of using the amazing network to attract my own community (within a community). So I found out that the work isn’t done when you find a great community…you have to consciously connect within that community and make it your own, based on your energy of course. I come from an incredibly strong community and never really was conscious about creating my own. Community happened to me. I was born into this amazing family that continues to be my most loving and healing community (btw…drink every time I say the word community in this post;). But when I moved away from my family I was on the eternal search for groups to cling too. How healing were all those groups…well, most of the time I wasn’t looking for healing, I was looking to have fun. Now that I am on a more mindful path in my life, it is amazing to see what I am attracting. I have always had incredible people in my life and I am so thankful for that!
Here is a pic of the most beautiful community that I was born into. Thank you to every one of you for being in my organic garden and for loving me. “Everything you want to be, do, or have comes from love.” I know that everything that I have, am and do comes from the love that my family has planted in my heart. Gratitude is rushing out of me like the river of Capistrano:) So I would ask all of you…who is it that is in your community? What kind of energy are you putting out there? What are you asking for in life? Is it being delivered but you are missing the blessing because it’s not how you expected to come to you? Go out with a new enthusiasm today and see who you will attract into your beautiful life!
The other night Tiana and I got out there and had an incredible night together where we got to experience first hand the exact level of enthusiasm that we are putting out there! We attracted some of the most enthusiastic people that are wanting to wake up and live life to the fullest. We had a wellness/networking event that we put on together and the process of putting it together was one of the most empowering experiences that I have had in my life. The turn out was amazing and the seed that is planted is growing like it is on steroids. I am so excited for what the future holds and all the people that we will be able to help in creating their own healthy community!
