Pretty sparkly things… fireworks that is. I spent the holiday week working too much, enjoying my parents visiting from So. Cal., and having a totally fun 4th/Birthday with Cath, despite the colder weather. My jewelry table has been doubling as brainstorming central for many ventures (thank goodness for laptops)and though the wire, beads and tools are surrounding me, very little jewelry making got done. I did manage to focus on the descriptions for a whole 2 hours.
Have you ever been entrenched in an idea to the point of detriment? I am getting close to that with my focus on positive energy. I know what you are thinking. How can you possibly have too much positive energy? For me lately it’s listening to the slowly diminishing “negative” voice that typically interrupts the positive thoughts. This change alone is quite the interesting experience. Or having the opportunity to watch the visualizations that I focused on in the last week start to come into reality.
If you are struggling with the next step of your plan, looking for the “how”, I can offer you a few stepping stones I have used on my path. Believe me, I’m still refining and working them along the way.
- Write down a plan: sounds way too simple but I’ve found the practice can help focus what you really want. Sometimes this is the most eye opening for me.
- Pull out all the stops: why limit your dreams? Put the BIG idea out there. The Universe has to know what it needs to provide.
- Let yourself enjoy the concept: No one knows the future, so who knows what you are capable of? You can try to talk yourself out of it, but leave that to others. Your energy can be used for good stuff instead.
- Put down some action steps: watch out for the first one, it’s a doosy! If that is your first reaction to even the concept of taking action, try baby steps. You may not win the race, but the path will still be there for you to follow everyday.

I love anyone with a twisted sense of humor. Be sure to give God (the Universe… whatever works for you) a good chuckle and let your plans be known.
