Being positive or negative are habits of thoughts that have a very strong influence on life.

Remez Sasson

“You have powers you never dreamed of. You can do things you never thought you could do. There are no limitations in what you can do except the limitations of your own mind.”

Darwin P. Kingsley

Positive and negative are directions. Which direction do you choose?

Remez Sasson

“Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.”

Groucho Marx

I get up reaaaalllll early in the morning. I got five kids so I wake up early to practice and do cardio and write and run Prana and set my intention for my day and life.

One early morning on Nantucket last summer I’d just finished my yoga practice overlooking the ocean with the sun sprinkling dots of brilliant light across its surface, and I reached into my bike basket to reapply my lip stuff as my kids call it (lip gloss with sunscreen), and I noticed it was almost gone.

In this situation, as in every situation in my life, I had a choice on what to focus:

“Oh, I have to buy more lip gloss.”

Or

“Wow, I’m so blessed to be in a beautiful place like this where i need SPF lip gloss so often that I’ve used almost all of it.”

If I choose the second thought and focus, more thoughts on that vibration are magnetized to me via the law of attraction, such as:

“Hey, this is the lip gloss they gave me for free at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital when I has my abdominal surgery.”

And then:

“Wow, that lip gloss lasted a long time!  Almost the whole summer.”

And:

“I’m so grateful that I had that surgery.”

And:

“My surgery went so well!”

And:

“I feel so great and so much better since Dr. Brooks sewed my rectus abdominis back together.”

And:

“Now I can eat anything without pain!”

And:

“Dr. Brooks rocks.”

And:

“That surgery and recovery was easy and actually kinda fun because everyone was so nice and helpful and i got to experience something totally different and take my Spiritual and Deliberate Creation practices to a whole new level, and if I can do that with ease and joy and gratitude, I can do anything.”

Which thought and focus are you choosing now and what thoughts and events are you therefore magnetizing to yourself?

Namaste!

It is amazing how many hints and guides and intuitions for living come to the sensitive person who has ears to hear what his body is saying.

Super-Mom of the Month
mom of month

Super-mom Kim Cherelli

 

WOW!! Supermom of the month.    I was shocked to say the least when Taylor mentioned she wanted me to be her super mom of the month.  Me?  I never thought there was anything super about me.  I’m as average as average is, nonetheless I was and am honored to be thought of.

 

I met Taylor a year ago during Teacher Training at Prana Power Yoga.  I was instantly drawn to her energy and knew I was in the right place.  I didn’t know why I decided to become a yoga instructor nor did I know what I was getting into.  You see prior to signing up for the 8 week teacher training I think I practiced yoga about a dozen times.  I woke up one day and said “ I think I’d like to be a yoga instructor”  I proceeded to ask my yoga instructor at BSC how one goes about becoming an instructor.  She told me about Prana and here I am a whole year later.  I wasn’t really sure what I was looking for other than the fact I was looking for “something” the something that yoga instructors have.  I’m learning every day and I’m a work in progress but this is a journey and I am excited to see where it takes me.  The teacher training was an emotional and beautiful experience.  As quickly as the thought popped into my head to become a yoga instructor the same happened for my understanding why.  I’m understanding I am where I am suppose to be right now at this moment.  Stress is not as prevalent as before and I’m understanding people a bit better.

 

So, a lil about me.  I’m a single mom of one 18 year old son.  I don’t consider myself any different than the next mother. I never found raising a child difficult because it came naturally to me. .  I raised him simply the way I wanted to be treated.  I always knew I wanted to be a mother. I was 24 when I found out I was pregnant and afraid to tell my mother.  I knew what she would say or better yet the look or her face would tell me how disappointed she was.  Most people know my situation and how my son was the result of an abusive relationship, however I wouldn’t have change a thing.  I had to go through that for my son to be born.  If I didn’t then he wouldn’t have been born and I can’t imagine my life without him.  People congratulate me for being a single mom  my son does too but I don’t think I deserve any special credit.  Putting aside all my heartache and struggles in my life, it’s nothing compared to what some are going through.  I do count my blessings and I feel blessed to have been given this gift of motherhood.  There are those who want children and can’t   I am so very thankful and I can’t say it enough…..It’s truly a blessing.

“where you are at this moment is where you are suppose to be”

Sending love and light to all
