Freedom to Love

I woke up this morning feeling amazing. I did a brief review of my life thus far since I decided to make happiness a priority. When you learn something life-giving you want to shout it onto the rooftops, of whatever rooftops you can find. This morning at exactly 6:50 I opened my eyes at the exact time I was supposed to clock in at work knowing I went to bed after 12 midnight.  I felt my own frequency as my eyes adjusted to the surrounding light. The room was congested and I was only one minute late from signing in but, not a  minute too late. I said my salutations to my co-workers online and sat in silence until the idea of love populated and connected with the beat of my heart.

I dreamt of someone I knew and this person in reality really shifted my heart into very open and unknown territories when I met him. He is tall, intelligent and a very handsome person. We even share a birth sign. The energy that he presents to life is so powerful. It is like his spirit is in perfect alignment with the definition of love. It is really quite overwhelming in a good way. In the dream he and I were defeating a post-apocalyptic world filled with Zombies, floods of water and a multitude of traps which, I thought were harmless buildings. In the end, as if we were in a video game, we defeated the illustrated lost world.

As I said hello to the world of the conscious I accepted a new freedom. Love is Free. It is not attached to a person, place or thing; it is only spiritual. Love in the bible and in other ancient texts is unconditional. Now that I have a better understanding of spirituality I know that who I connect with will vary and it will not have anything to do with fickle behavior. It’s all about the energy baby! I don’t believe I lost anytime in my past because I was ignorant of how life truly manifests words that attach to how we feel because reality and what we see will not always be what we get when we choose to only see with our own eyes. I believe that when we breathe in and out we get the answers we need. There was a time when I was all caught up with this guy. In fact, there were many times when I got caught up in a situation when I invested my feelings into the unknown. I fixated how I felt and attached/tagged that emotion to whomever filled my desires of what I wanted in the opposite sex.

I am definitely not saying that I was a hopeless romantic but, I have always been the definition of the hopeless romantic. I looked for signs and symbols and everything and it all connected my sight to what I felt. The trust I placed on my eyes blinded other possibilities & every time a love interest did not work out I launched death into my future. There was a sickness within me. I was blinded by broken images. This morning I let my soul be free and yielded to the wilderness of my spiritual journey. I am eternally grateful for every message in life my spirit is able to receive. When I tune in to the lullaby of the universe I exemplify the universe.

Light lives in all of us and you will always match your vibration. Now that I no longer trust  my physical sight my spirit is free from confinement. Who I end up with physically has no importance because “the one” is my spiritual match. I don’t want to do this life in repetition just to understand what I know now. There are so many great prospects that I know I connect well with. I carry a very light weight of energy the opposite sex can trust. However; now I know I will connect with my feather weight match. Searching is never a necessity for I will gravitate towards my kindred spirit. I think the adventurous albeit treacherous dream told  me that I already connected with the love of my life and the forces of nature is guiding my physical body toward him.

God created and formed all of my ways before I was born into this world and my recognition of this greatness mapped my entire life from start to finish. I am so grateful that I understand the flow of music. Music helped me to understand my needs in the perfect partner. My nutcracker prince dances to the song of the sugar-plum fairies. My heart flows rhythmically to the masterpiece that it is and connects to a very unique individual. My heart is set and the “He” will be unknown. From this day forward  I see that when “He” appears I will know just as the sun meets the horizon of the earth that “He” is the perfect match for my soul.

Thank you so much for joining me on my daily thoughts. I am grateful for any likes or comments. Please follow my journey of happiness & generously share with the links below.

Frustration, War Against Myself

Lately I have been examining my thought patterns a lot. As you already know, I began my blog for a reason and that was to create ways to be happy. My path is laced with many ups and downs like most people on this earth but, I have a tendency to automatically war against my own happiness. I see this in a lot of people I interact with daily at work when they call in because something is broken and they just want me to resolve any issue they are calling in for. I never feel challenged to come up with a resolution but, when they are frustrated, they begin to push back against my willingness to help them. The next thing that happens, the customer gets more aggressive with their frustrations and like a god they say, “I knew this was going to happen.” As the onslaught to the injury out of the energy they created by prophesying their inevitable doom. How many of us Self-Fulfill a negative prophecy? The war of right and wrong prove our ignorance. No longer will the war against my flesh and blood remain because frustration and confusion are the only outcome.

Frustrations are bad habits that are deeply rooted in the heart of the subconscious. There are a lot of things that bother me. Whenever I have trouble coming up with a topic for my blog, all I can think about is that my mind is empty. When I launch the thought, the genie appears and my mind empties. This aggression comes from the seed of doubt. I fail to look past the emotion and tell myself to lay back because I already know the answer. When I don’t call for peace I then become frustrated. I’ll give a hypothetical scenario that we all can relate to. You have to take this big exam that will make or break your dream. You studied, you know everything and the night before you are confident nothing can wrong, you’ve got this. The next day you sit down and are provided the testing materials but, your brain checks out. You become frustrated and anxious and start doubting yourself. The end game, many people fail. After you receive your score you go over the test and you discover that you knew everything on it. The why in this lesson is important because it will help you to control the elements within your body.

To stop the self-destruction of my negative emotions, I release the energy so it is disconnected from my thoughts. This is a very interesting process because I know that the negative energy has to go somewhere because the negative forces of nature are very powerful and you don’t want to put that energy on someone else. When negative energy is directed onto someone else it spreads like a cancer, it has that much power. So where does this negative go then? You have to understand that positive energy is more powerful than negative, you have an advantage because you have already won the battle. The negative energy should go towards creation. I put my negative energy in every song, poem or blog I write. I place it on my future because physics tells us that negative energy allows time travel and worm holes. You can literally change your life for the better with negative energy.

The power of positive energy kills frustration because you use the positive to direct the negative energy to where it should go. When you allow frustration or anxiety to control you, the right of self-control is stripped away from your spiritual freedom. I am not in the medical field but, since I have been on this spiritual field since birth I feel as if diseases and that includes those of the mind were created by humanity. Every year there is something new a scientist discovers that is wrong with the human body. I chose to accept that my reality lives on spiritual planes on which I control my physical plane, my body. What upsets me is that we give our emotions diseases as if the powers that be are telling us we are out of control of the world we live in and thus, we should sit back and accept that we have no power and must war against ourselves.

I went very heavy on something very basic but, I wanted to explain from the inside out of where frustration, anxiety or any so-called mental issues come from. We don’t need medicine, we need meditation so we can learn how to control the elements within us. Good or bad, the outcome starts within and it is for us that have full control. The root of frustration is negative energy. Once you learn how nature works you can began to direct your paths. I will no longer lose track with my thinking because negative energy has no control over me and this is the same for every person on the planet. Unlearn the ways of the world to find truth.

Thank you so much for joining me. Today, I learned something amazing. When I forget it is because I am frustrated. To redirect my frustrations, so it doesn’t disrupt my achievements, I must take the emotion and redirect the negative into my writing, building myself up or building others up. Now I know why Yoga instructors say Namaste because we all have the divine spark in the heart chakra (the house of emotions). I believe the divine spark carries the weight of the dead and we can allow it to destroy us or use it for our good and for the good of others.

Namaste,

So Mote it Be

Memory holds a cacophony of the sounds of our past. How many impressions are running through your head? I am sitting at work exploring my thoughts while I answer calls and interact with other people. In my background I hear the music of life, the voices of my co-workers. I used to always shut out the sounds around me. I felt they were just noises and those noises always had to power to distract my thought patterns. Distractions can cause you to lose your voice. Distractions kept my ability to process and project my true voice for many years. What do we really claim in life when our thoughts are in alignment with discord? That dope song that you heard on the radio, what were the lyrics? I want to use one song as an example to show just how magic works.

Harry Potter is fictional, right? I always marveled the world of witches and wizards. I thought I would be just like Mildred Hubble from The Worst Witch. I felt I was an ordinary girl who had this secret ancient power to cast spells and create anything my heart desired. And then one day that idea crawled under a rock because someone told me that magic wasn’t real. That desire I though I had disappeared remained in a secret hiding place until the day I unlocked becoming the greatest version of myself. Magic is very real. In fact, words were downloaded into our DNA from the moment we were born. As the Bible states, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God”(John 1:1 NIV). This tells me that our souls are in sync with the words that come out of our mouth because what we say manifest into the universal astral plane. Manifestation begins with the words we say.

“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer” ~Psalms 19:14 (KJV)

I scrolled through my playlist to find a song that would be a superb example and I am proud to say that I’ve banished most of the music I use to listen to. The songs we listen to casts spells daily, directing our subconscious mind, the home of encoded emotions. When a song is introduced to the subconscious it begins to collect the words and then the subconscious stores those words as energy. When the time comes for the energy to be released those collected words can either work for our good or work against us. For example, I used to always love the music of Amy Winehouse. Her sultry voice is very inviting but, most of he music carries the weight of self-destruction. I used to put her records on repeat just so I could learn the lyrics and feel the pain she felt. By reciting the words of her songs my subconscious followed the orders of her message and my life became chaotic without me being aware of what was happening. My life has been every song, movie, TV show, things I learned in school and lies of my worthiness for so long I had no rhyme or reason. While singing Love is a Losing Game, I transformed my thoughts into the melody and my love life aligned with every detail of the lyrics.

The next steps after the emotional discord is the phase of testing and proving. My beliefs traveled to a place of despair and I began to believe that my life was hopeless. This vicious cycle repeated itself  from the childhood and adult years of my life. Blessed is the day I took ownership of the words that form from my heart. I had to want wisdom more than anything. Now I am careful of everything I listen to this is my life experience. I am careful of what I attach my emotions to because it will become my reality. I write my blogs everyday in hopes that I can encourage and provide methods to live my best life now. I have been liberated from years of enslavement and everyday my life transforms into a better and perfect world where peace is the primary theme that I manifest.

A few months ago I considered ending my life. I lost a child, suffered miscarriages, was abused mentally and physically, felt I had no friends, warred against being alone, did not value the purpose of the family I was born into, and my dreams were collecting dust. I am free from the neutron star collision. It is amazing that my transformation began with a thought and a suggestions to create a blog. 50 posts later, I can testify that my life has dramatically  changed for the better. I’ve also been able to trust my instincts because instincts guide us toward purpose. I am free to love without conditions and that unconditional love allows me to see the world through God’s perspective. I no longer doubt myself because I am in control of what my subconscious accepts. If the information I receive leads to expansion, I am all for it. If the information  is negative then I already know, garbage in and garbage out. I create my own steps to manifest the best parts of my being, blogging is one of them.

Thank you very much for reading this entry today. My advice for this week is for you to write out or search using your browser, the lyrics of your favorite song. Catch the flow of the message of the artist and the emotional intent. After understanding the intent ask yourself would you or wouldn’t you want that experience in your reality. The subconscious mind is always ready to carry out the orders you give it and the songs we listen gives the subconscious orders without conscious awareness.

Creation

Every blow to my face has worked for my good
Love is never lost
Who knew I would find it in all creation
Fates a pace in the path of my past memories
I'll take what I'm given and create a masterpiece
Pebbles in puddles and pondered by lost arts
No longer wonder if I can ever go far
Retrace to the beat of a dream in motion
I've discovered new worlds with life bearing oceans
I think of the needs for my soul to proceed
If I really want it all then will I sacrifice my seeds
Life's a Valley with hills and devotion
What really rules my house are the elements from concoctions
I stand tall as the alchemist
Will I take what I own or continue to dismiss
I'm strong in my wizardry
Don't think twice
Create your own future history

I’ve Got a Feeling

"When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionable."

                                                                                                                                  ~Walt Disney

I woke up this morning screaming. I had a dream that I went over my ex's house and he had purchased hermit crabs. The hermit crabs started to rapidly reproduce and they were scattered all over the floor of his home. I didn't fear them so, when my ex asked me to pick up the crabs to put them in their cage  I could not because fear, there were too many. The hermit crabs were out of control and they began crawling up my leg and then the most dreadful thing happened, one crawled into my rear end and there was nothing I could do to get it out of me. Like a jolt of lightening I woke up screaming as I opened my eyes. I could hear some children's program on the television in the fog of my conscious awareness. The sound was so loud and jarring I got up to turn my television off and peace was restored in my kingdom, aka my room. I thought of going back to sleep but, I've already created the idea that once I am up there is no way I can go back to sleep. This idea will stick with me unless I call this daily function to disappear.

I was excited to go down into the quiet kitchen where I can always hear the friendly chirps of the morning birds and write about the very brief but, intense dream I had. The dream was probably only five minutes but, it felt like it transcended time and space. Time has no distance in the world powered by the subconscious being. The same being allowed me to feel the travels of the hermit crabs as the crawled up my legs. Also, I could hear there claws clapping swiftly against the floor like they were a tiny audience applauding and dancing to a melody that only the hermit crabs understood. Finally, when one crab gnawed its way to enter me the dreamy state of my conscious mind checked out to say hello to the world.

The subconscious is wondrous and majestic. I marvel all its ways and because of this I can't turn away from the secrets unlocked for the disposal of my conscious self. I find it fascinating that I was able to feel and hear the songs of the hermit crabs and their symbolic relation of what I think, what I say and what I do in reality. To me, this proves that the subconscious controls the intercepted ideas and relates these interceptions back into our reality. I think therefore I am (Rene Descartes). This is grade-A knowledge which enables us to infinitely create the world we want. It is amazing to reference great artists for inspiration but, know that the universe wants us to discover and love the creative genius we are destined to be in this world

I will harper on the importance of reorganizing the way I think because thoughts become reality. By the power of divine inspiration we become healers and instantly erase fabricated years of the mind controlling world we are born into. What matters most are the thoughts we launch into the world we see. We only see by the power of mind, body and spirit. I really want people to know we are free and we don't have to ever question what will make us happy because you and ONLY YOU can energetically shift all the elements of the universe around you. Trusting in what we see robs us of our birthright to be extremely powerful beings. Never allow lies to slip through the cracks of your belief's. Fortify your beliefs with the knowledge that you are the grand wizard of your life.

I will end this blog with something for you to think about. Walt Disney knew the secrets of the universe. In Fantasia Walt Disney used mickey as his avatar to control the wonders of the universe and by doing so his manifestations were wondrous. You have to be solely committed to understanding how the universe works through mind, body and spirit.  He also allowed viewers who understood the message of the story he told through his art to see how easily it is to manifest disaster when you don't understand the ways of the universe. When thoughts are in one accord you create the most beautiful melody and the world around you becomes the evidence of the things unseen. Now I know without any doubts that from my mouth flows rivers, valleys, lakes, life, art, love, master of the arts, creator of the universe and the list will continue to flow throughout the river of the life I create. If you want to be a billionaire you have to emotionally cast billion dollar ideas and you will certainly create billion dollar experiences. The universe is ours to orchestrate.

The Power of Three

The term as above so below sticks to the place where I keep key phrases tattooed on my heart. When I got up this morning the first thing I saw were these three pictures I have not seen in a very long time. It was pictures of the senior prom I went to with the only boyfriend I had in high school. It was his senior prom, I did not go to mine because my last year of high school I moved back to Philly and went to the only available neighborhood school. The pictures were set up on my keyboard in the shape of a triangle. Through divine inspiration I went downstairs and started to draw triangles with circles in my notebook titled, Book of Positive Aspects. Then I said to myself, blessed be. The cone shaped world we live in describes the geometric perfection of the triangle.

Lately I have been feeling like I unlocked this sacred secret. I’ve embraced my calling because once upon a time I was too afraid of what I know I am called to do in this life. My destiny is in alignment with seeding truth and light to souls who are lost and I recognize this begins with mine own. I came to love all that I touch and once again this all is formed from within. When you know that all of life seen and unseen are perfectly balanced by logic and spirit the internal world can no longer war with demons because perfect balance is your true strength. The perfect balance is the equality of yin and yang. Reason and emotion can flow perfectly from within us when we understand the elements and laws of nature. I’ve parted with old ways that were attached to ignorance and my perish. Life is only a mystery when we don’t recognize that we are responsible for the world outside of us and equally responsible for the world within.
Before I went to bed last night I told myself, “Miya you will write a masterpiece.” I woke up knowing I have within me to create my own Huffington Post. The word “will” used to mean “won’t”. Every time I said “will” I always felt doubt behind it. I know I would waste my time in trying to discover why I did this because the why doesn’t hold any weight in me changing in the now. “Will” to me now holds so much power. “Will” is creation and not my worlds definition of things to come. As the bible states “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth (the physical body) as it is in Heaven” (the spiritual body) (Matthew 6:10 KJV). Will is the immediate action of things to come right now. Just as each letter is formed from this pencil, the will are my thoughts, the action is in my hand and I magically manipulate time and space by creating words that flow using the elements of the energetic connection between the pencil and the paper.

We are all creators The triangle helps me to understand how my mind views and creates my world. When you add the circle in the middle of a triangle you are able to see the cycle of life. The song Circle of Life from Disney’s 1994 movie The Lion King has more meaning to me now. In order to create you must place a marker and declare that the only hemisphere that matters is the network of your mind, body and soul.
The Arch of creation is this:

 
Infinity transfers through time and space in the as above, so below world we create. Infinity is the life force that we call God. “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31) We are designed with and by the presence of God. So, it is us who holds the power to create War and Peace. When you wake children up in the middle of the night confusion is expected by the little ones in the dark until they began to focus. The little ones are guided by the shadow of the sun so, what’s innocent can never be lost.
Thank you so much for reading my blog today. A little wisdom I impart: Life doesn’t quit until you live out your destiny. Destiny is the balance of mind and body and the spirit holds the power of what we do and aligns with who we become. Comment below and share your own wisdom.

Finally fell from cloud 9

 

Daisies

Your footsteps mark the fall back
Graduated never faded so fall back
Mystery in the need to bleed
Took everything you thought in
present day, victories in tall stacks
Never dissipate to legends in small fortunes
Glisten the dream in your heart for legends
Terrified to cry in Krispy Creme leads and all of the organic's too quick for the mathematics, the potion is what we dream
Everyday's about making history
Fear the light cause you know he's listening
Climb the shadows it doesn't matter until the weathers in different oceans
I write 'live' never to shatter
You see my life and you think it's all together
I respect the fight for the place called heaven
And I know you'll never try to hide much when we live the game we see a different side of the spectrum
Feel sunk in for the moment but, I know I've made it out and I own it, love
We want it all for The weekend
or we'll do it for the sake of sin

Memory

Today I imagined that I was driving down a dark road. I couldn’t see anything and the headlights of my car had flickered out. This is what my memory has been like over the past few years. I used to be able to conjure up words from my mouth without delay. As time has passed my memory checks out on me when I need it most. Being a writer and having memory loss does not go hand and hand. I refuse to think that it is due to my age because I am still relatively young, I am in my 30’s. I do have a family history of Alzheimer’s disease but, again I am too young to claim the symptoms that rob the mind of what it knows. Not long ago up until my mid 20’s I had expansive cognitive capabilities. When I write my daily blogs sometimes it can be a struggle to think of my own word play and isn’t so much the use of different words that expand my vocabulary, it is everyday sentence structure which effects my ability to allow complete and coherent sentences to flow through my mouth and from my mind. Beyond aging I believe there are three things that contribute to memory loss. Nutrition, lack of sleep and the polluted environment.

I am a huge conspiracy theorist so, I have beliefs that are alternative to the “facts” we are given. I start with nutrition because I have personally experienced the effects mal-nutrition has on the brain. When I mostly eat raw vegetables and fruits I lose weight and I also think clearly. My vocabulary expands and I have very little issues with remembering what I have to say from one sentence to the next. There were a few times in my life when I decided to go vegan. Being a vegan can be one of the greatest and most rewarded challenges we can take in life. For a few months, even during the holidays, my veganism was not an issue. I knew all mal-nutrition that exists in most of the foods we eat are due to hormone injections and other horrors so, it was easy to turn away from anything that was not good for my mind and body. I jumped back into the saddle of not eating well not because of finances but, I live in a city and most cities are deserted form having options that are healthy. In the city you will more than likely see Chinese food restaurants, corner stores that sell salty bags of chips or surgery sweets, pizza shops, liquor stores and most of the markets lead in selling genetically modified products.

Harvard Health Publications conducted a study on memory loss and nutrition. The facts reported left me astonished. The study discovered that the Mediterranean diet have foods that are high in healthy unsaturated fats which includes, olive oil, fish and nuts. This diet has been linked to lower the rates of dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease and also mild cognitive impairment. When you go into an inner city minority neighborhood healthy foods are slim-pickens. Most of the fruits and vegetables available are heavily sprayed with pesticides and due to lack of demand, the supply of healthy options in lower income communities remains scarce. The people perish due to lack of knowledge (Hosea4:6). My cognitive functions are strongly rooted in where I come from; my environment.

According to brainfacts.org, by using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) researchers were able to see a dramatic difference of brain network activity from a brain that was sleep deprived verses a brain that wasn’t. Several brain networks that control cognitive and behavioral functions were negatively affected. I can achieve my greatest-self daily as long as I get enough snooze time. I am more alert, my mood is optimal and I can make quick decisions that won’t negatively impact my life or those apart of it. I know that when I am deprived of sleep I am more emotional and I cannot think of what I have to say and I start downing my intelligence. Having a job where I am forced to step out of the comfort of silence can make my daily tasks challenging. Sometimes when I explain things to my customers or other people I can forget quite easily the subject we are discussing. On the emotional end, I tear myself down. I say to myself that I am ugly and I start adding a load of negatives. I am stoked that I now know how to turn negatives into positives with my spin around wizardry (positive prospects).

The conspiracy for me begins with the idea that we live in a very corrupt society. We all breathe the same air, or do we? I was reading The New York Times article, How Walking in Nature Changes the Brain. There have been studies that proved that the people who live in urban developments have a higher risk for anxiety, depression and other mental illnesses. On the other side of the picket fence, those who live in communities where nature is as close as their backdoor are less likely to develop mental disorders (Reynolds). These studies were able to show that urban city dwellers were more likely to development mental disorders. I think that the powers that be know this and keep the truth hidden so people who live in the city will attribute their negative environment to lack of motivation and financial disadvantage. By planting more trees on every city block it can improve the emotional dynamic of the neighborhood.

What we remember takes the throne of who we are to the world with and without and memory is important to happiness because of this. This world is be very abrupt to call people stupid based off what they know. I am judged constantly by others and I know this is something I cannot control. I think the powers that be know that these factors create cultures that are lazy and who are ignorant to see life optimistically. To be absent of the spirit is to live life as a mindless drone. I could be completely wrong but, I do know this: We are all born into a world where systems of separation exist. Absent of the ways of the world we are one, there is no difference. Memory is important just so we don’t lose track of how the world works and how we should all operate within the world.

The only price we pay is going through life figuring out what’s real and what’s fake. I thank you for joining me on this journey today.

Mental Exercise at the Wissahickon

On Sunday I drove to my favorite place in the city, Valley Green, to take pictures and to observe my surroundings. To sharpen my linguistics I described every detail of my travels to the park. The road was long and the atmosphere was filled with excitement as I descended into Valley Green. I felt as if I were being transported back in time. I could feel the energy of all of my experiences .I instantly recalled moments I had with my best friend. We used to explore the park and as light and dark go perfectly together we made Valley Green our home away from home. I recalled moments I used to entertain my curiosity with nature. Fear is what took the magic away from this place when I saw a family of raccoons. I‘ve had a fear of raccoons for a very long time and because of my fears the ties I had with nature were temporarily severed. I take full responsibility for the lack and limitations I produced in my past. Now is the time to dwell on abundance and strengthening my mind. Now is the time to exercise the mind in ways that turns opposite of madness.

As soon as I parked and got out of the car I looked behind me and could see indentations of mud holes filled with rain. I looked up at the trees as I stretched and set my mind on the adventure of exploring alone. The atmosphere was heavy with the energy of families, friends, everyday joggers and cyclists. Looking around I saw no difference for, everyone became one. The scenery of the park is always perpetually welcoming. As I walk past cars to get to the main trail I see the Valley Green Inn and its horse stable. After the construction of the turnpike the Inn, which was erected as a hotel in 1850, gave those who wanted to marvel the parks beauty a place to rest and eat. Though I came here to take pictures, I strongly believe my spirit was guided here to learn a valuable lesson in the importance of exercising the mind.

As I mentioned me and my best friend used to come to Valley Green. We imagined we were great explorers like The Goonies or Laura Croft. I decided to take pictures of anything that was the symbolism of our friendship. I walked about a half mile to take pictures of this small waterfall and a historical landmark, the Livezey house. This scenery held a few fond memories that she and I shared. To get to the waterfall you have to walk down decrepit and steep stone steps. The fear of falling mysteriously crept into my head space. That fear made me hesitate a little and I had to decide to dedicate my life to fear or take a chance. This decision I felt connected with everything I am afraid of, be it the opinions of others, being a successful writer, or building new friendships.

Chances are there for the taking so, I took a chance and walked down the broken steps. The staircase was surrounded by foliage. I took a lot of pictures of the waterfall. It was nice to be up close to the water and not have the fear of falling. I am a great swimmer and I am cautious so, unless my dark and wild imagination took over, I knew I would be fine. I had a sense of accomplishment because I chose to be fearless. After I was done I started to think that going up would be the hardest part. I had to exercise positive thought with every step I took going back up. I felt my lungs burning and I was out of breath. I didn’t want to sit down when I reached the top so, I hunched over so I could catch my breath. After that I walked over to a bench so I could rest my leg and describe how I felt and the lesson I learned.

I was instantly liberated from the fear of doing anything that pertained to the solo chase of life. Fear is worth exploring because when you break through the fear you can proudly wave your flag as proof you have conquered. Mind, body and soul need to be constantly exercised. If the mind is free or imprisoned by emotions it can’t comprehend. When the mind is able to manipulate how it feels to spin a negative into a positive, it can weather through internal wars. The discord of negativity will crowd your personal space if you allow it. When you know you are responsible for how you think you have a clear understanding that thought transitions into what people say or do. Our eyes gives us life in cycles frame by frame. The reality you see is based on the preconditions of the mind. When you panic in darkness it is because you trust your eyes too much. Know that you can only adjust what you see by changing how you think.

Let’s all get physical and exercise our minds to seed positive thoughts. The mind is the storehouse of the reflections of our outer world. Be the alchemist and start with the world within. We have all heard the question, “What came first, the chicken or the egg?” I would have to say the egg came first. With the egg I am able to store all of the nutrients possible to create a perfect world. I learn something new every day when I walk in the spirit of happiness. I testify that life does change for the better when you allow love and happiness to be the judge and jury of your thoughts.
