“If you know that all is well, you know all you need to know.”

We just arrived home from Europe late last night with our kiddos after spending most of the summer so far in Switzerland and Paris.

 

Before every flight we take I say a mantra that goes like this, “Our flight is safe, smooth, enjoyable, easy, invigorating, fun, reenergizing, and on time.”

 

I begin saying it a few days before we fly.

 

Now I teach and write about deliberate creation all day every day. And it really works.

 

The Universe delivered yesterday, no doubt, but I still have to say, that every parent who flies with a child is a superhero.

 

The end.

 

Have the best day ever!

 

Namaste!

“My heroes are and were my parents. I can’t see having anyone else as my heroes.”

Michael Jordan

“Keep your thoughts positive, because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive, because your words become your behaviors. Keep your behaviours positive, because your behaviours become your habits. Keep your habits positive, because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive, because your values become your destiny.”

Gandhi

“What you love you empower and what you fear you empower – and what you empower you attract.”

“You are given the gifts of the gods, you create your reality according to you beliefs. Yours is the creative energy that makes your world. There are no limitations to the self except those you believe in.”

Seth

“Thoughts are boomerangs, returning with precision to their source. Choose wisely which ones you throw.”

“By choosing your thoughts, and by selecting which emotional currents you will release and which you will reinforce, you determine the quality of your Light. You determine the effects that you will have upon others, and the nature of the experiences of your life.”

Gary Zukav

“Like attracts like. Whatever the conscious mind thinks and believes the subconscious identically creates.”

Brian Adams

When you say, “I am,” the words that follow are bringing on creation.  You are creating with those powerful words!  The words “I am” are powerful because you are declaring it to be a fact.  You are stating it with an incredible force because you are certain (or the Universe believes so because of the words “I am”), and so right after you say, “I am tired” or “I am sick” or “I am late” or “I am fat” or “I am broke” or “I am depressed,” the Universe delivers.  Immediately.

Watch your words.  Are they creating the life you want?  Are they helping you to be the person you want to be?  Are they a reflection of your authentic self?

 

Have the BEST DAY EVER!

Namaste!

Super-Mom Betsy Parsons:

I expected motherhood to change me.  How could it not?  Everything was new.  But what I didn’t expect was that motherhood would strip me bare – drop me to rock bottom – force me to face that I had lost myself – demand that I pick up the shattered bits of me and piece myself back together.  It was all at once brutal and gratifying.  I am grateful for all of it.  I have learned who I am and how great my support system is.  I learned how absolutely wonderful my husband is, what a fantastic dad he is, and what a loving and supportive family surround us.  It’s not just me who is a super mom.  It’s my husband, my mom and dad, and my mother and father-in-law who make up this super family.  Each one of us plays an important role. Life is a tremendous gift, and we were all starkly reminded of that during the first six weeks of my daughter’s life. We almost lost her.  The first six weeks of her life were spent in the NICU.  She was a full term baby but a very sick one.  After she came home, every milestone was carefully watched.   She thrived.  And I almost missed it because I was worried about what could be wrong.  It was 9 months later when I started to splinter apart.  She was walking and I was cracking – emotions needed to be expressed.  I needed to feel again.  Not surprising, but I hadn’t been taking care of myself.  I was just trying to make it through a minute, then an hour, and a full day.  I wasn’t taking care of myself.  I wasn’t sleeping well.  I was sleepwalking.  I rationalized that all of this was well within a first-time mom response (ha!).   Eventually, I was diagnosed with PTSD and got help.  I began to piece myself back together.  It took another full year for me to hear the stirrings of my voice.  It’s been over two years, and just recently I realized that I am whole again.  I experienced such joy in finding myself.    I had really missed me!  But losing myself and finding an improved version had taken hold – makes me so grateful for the journey.  It has allowed me freedom to be myself, to slow down and enjoy the moments of motherhood, to rely on my family to play significant roles raising my daughter, to trust, and to embrace the unexpected.  It’s often what I need most!  I’m so thankful for my super family – including my husband who is embracing his role as stay-at-home dad!  Collectively, we’re a super team with a super daughter.
