If-Then

My intention is to publish when I finish. I don't want to allow it to sit. This means it may not be the best edit. :D I am fairly decent at self-editing so I don't think it will be too bad.

The other night I was frustrated again. Routines, schedules, etc. They sound amazing to me. I desire a life where things are done daily to keep up. I desire a life where I set an intention to do something and follow through. I long to be organized. The word looms at me. Many have admired my ability to be organized. Others have seen the truth.

I have a free spirit side to me.

I was asking myself "How can I?" I love that question! This time it was, "How can I have the routines I want and still be true to my wave side?" Wave is a term that comes from Alex Paulos's temperament typing system. (http://paulosrecognition.com/ap/) "The ‘Wave’ dominant type is pre-wired to divert focus and to thrive in the world of possibility and change," quote from the website.

The answer came in the realization of how much negativity I had around the word routine and schedules. Plus the idea I had that only certain types of people can have routines and schedules. This left me with a choice. I could take the time to clear all of the negativity around the words or find another way.

I'm pretty swamped these days with clearing energy. I have had a focus and I didn't feel like clearing these words at this time. This left me looking for another way. The words "good habits" came to mind.

It's funny how that feels so much lighter than the other words. I can see anyone on the planet making good habits. The amount of time to create them may take different amounts of times but any one can create a good habit.

I turned to my trusty friend Google for assistance. I found a tool that I am so excited about that I felt like writing. If-then planning.

Say that my goal, because it is one, is to fold laundry as it comes out each day. I have 5 kids, we do laundry often. What if I don't feel like folding? When planning my goal I will decide what to do in situations like these. Decide what will you do when you don't feel like doing what you want. For me it looks like, "If I don't want to fold, then I will at least sort."

Eventually I will have created a habit of sorting at least. If I find that I rarely actually fold then I can keep working towards that habit by changing my if-then plan. If..., then I will sort as well as fold one child's laundry. Eventually I may get my children to fold their own laundry but for now I am satisfied that they will at least put it away if I fold it for them.

At our house we've taken this idea to other aspects as well. If we don't feel like doing school, then.... If we don't feel like cleaning our room, then.... You can even use it for a diet. If I didn't stay within my calories, then....

Giving yourself a lesser than option allows you to keep progressing towards your goal. It helps you avoid the all or nothing thinking that happens so often. No longer stuck in if I don't do it then why bother in the future. Life happens so let's plan for it and still succeed.

My Mission Statement

As I allow my most recent draft to percolate I thought I'd read through and revise some drafts that have been sitting for a while. This is one of those. :)

For a while I felt a little off purpose and without identity. It was quite ironic considering that I called myself an Identity Specialist. An Identity Specialist helps others get in touch with their true identity and purpose and I was feeling completely disconnected from mine.

I had just read an email that asked some questions to get people thinking about their mission. I have been wondering about mine so the timing was pretty perfect. A mission is a type of purpose. There are a few types of purpose in this world. So I'll refer to mission statement.

This isn't to be confused with a mission like a task. It's not, "Here's your mission if you choose to accept it." A mission statement is at the core of everything we do whether we are aware of it or not. We chose into it before we came to earth.

A mission statement is actually something that can be true of you no matter what you choose to be or do with your life. It is a common thread throughout. It never changes. Years ago I did a process that came to one and I rebelled against it in so many ways. I hear rebelling against it is quite common.

The guy who I learned this from claimed to be a "sword of truth". I came to the conclusion, "I am a warrior of light." Rebelling at the idea of warrior I called myself instead a "bearer of light." I chuckled recently when I heard my aunt say hers was "warrior of light". She, like me, has many gifts in the energy side of life.

One of the questions often asked when looking for purpose is What could you talk about for hours and not get bored? This is always easy for me to answer. This is a great way to discover one aspect of purpose but it isn't our mission statement.

Our mission statement doesn't care what we do or how we do it as long as we are being true to it. If I stop shining light, and fighting for it (yes I have to accept that I am a warrior) then I feel miserable and off purpose. I choose to focus much of my activity around healing. It allows me to assist others in shining light and I definitely experience the battle aspects with this, although I choose to be a peaceful warrior.

My aunt has chosen a more specific focus of battling evil. We aren't doing the same things but we are both being warriors of light. Much light soldiers in an army will have different tasks they are in charge of.

I am a warrior of light, with an emphasis on healing and educating. I love to write on different subjects because I know that it is igniting the light within you.

Do you know what your mission statement is? There are many ways of finding this information. I can't even remember the exact process to find mine. I can tell you this. We have the answers within. We have direct access to all knowledge concerning us. I believe it is as simple as asking and receiving.

Ask: What is my mission statement? If you are used to asking yourself questions like these and getting answers you may hear instantly what it is. Even without being used to it you may hear the answer. If not the answer will come. You may be walking down the street and notice something that triggers a thought and it will come to your awareness that you've been answered. You may hear someone say something. You may find it helpful to write in a journal about it. Whatever your process just know it is perfect for you.

What if you don't receive an answer? Two thoughts come to mind here.

One, you may not be ready to know. Your spirit will only grant access to that information if it is in your highest good to know.

Two, you may be blocking the answer. This could be as simple as trying too hard, holding to tight to the outcome, or fear of receiving.

There is nothing to be afraid of. Once you recognize the answer you can see throughout your life how it will apply. Maybe not at first, like me with the warrior, but eventually you can see. I get my most defensive when I am fighting for what I believe is truth and I have always done so.

What is a Chakra?

I've been writing a book. I'm really excited about this book. The information started coming to me years ago and has just now hit a point where I understood why I was given the information.

When I was sharing on facebook that I was taking on the goal of writing a book on chakras I was asked, "What is a chakra?" I love this question. It gets me thinking in terms of people who may not know what a chakra is. Those people who will likely learn about chakras for the first time from my book.

I found this at this website.
It shows how many see chakras.
The word chakra comes from a Sanskrit word cakra which means wheel or circle. A chakra is an energy center that is often perceived by those who can see energy as a spinning wheel, often as two funnels connected in the middle. They perceive energy spinning in and out of each center creating our earth experiences.

When the chakras are working well we experience positives in our lives. When they are blocked or not functioning correctly we will experience negatives in our lives. This isn't to be confused with everything being perfect but rather when they are working properly it is easier for us to find the positive side of each situation.

There are many chakras throughout our energies. Some major and some minor. Some located on or rather within the physical body and some out of the physical body but within our individual energy systems. Each one has a purpose and a function. One is about connection, another about voice. One will assist us in creating prosperity and another will help us feel safe.

Some of the minor chakras are connected with organs within the body. They assist the organs in working properly. If an organ is not healing there may be a chakra not working right creating some of the problem. One function of chakras help to expel negative energy and bring in positive.

The chakras are conduits our spirits use to operate and function in this physical world. As we heal chakras the spirit gets to have more control of the mortal body and we begin to feel more joy.

I'm really excited about my book. I'm also really excited about the work I am doing. It's especially fun to heal chakras. If you are interested in my work then please check out my service page and send me a message.
