The first thing that runs through your head in the morning is, “I didn’t get enough sleep”. As you get dressed you tell yourself as you look around the house, “There are not enough hours in the day to get all I need done”. As you head out the door and drink your coffee you say, “I need more coffee.” And as you move through your day, the pattern becomes tattooed in your consciousness: “Nothing is enough.”
Bottom line: Too many of us fall into this negative loop of thinking there’s not enough... Time, money, friends, love, you name it.
And it’s a lie.
There IS enough!
You just have to make the conscious choice to get on the frequency of, “There is enough” and “I am enough.”
How do you do this? You do it by focusing on all the leaves on the tree, houses in your city, rocks in the mountains, apples at Whole Foods, stars in the sky and waves in the ocean. Remember, what you focus on grows stronger and there is MORE than enough for everyone!
If you focus on lack of sleep, time and love, your world will reflect it. If you focus on enough time, money and love, your life will begin to reflect that.
As you wake up in the morning, let your mantra be, “I had a great sleep”. As you drink your coffee, say, “That hit the spot”. As you go off to work tell yourself, “I have all the time I need. What a gift!”
Change your message, change your life. As you change what you tell yourself, the world will mirror your thoughts. And yes, there is enough for everyone.

Walking in the most beautiful park in America with my husband, I was discussing how I needed to finish my “F*cked 2 Fixed Up” workbook. My husband quickly retorted, “No one likes to work, so why call it a workbook”? Hmmm, I responded with, “How about a playbook?”
The very next evening while seeing my regular client, I decided to tell myself I was going to “play” rather than “work”. My body immediately responded with a sense of lightness and joy with the thought of “play”. My client also thoroughly enjoyed our session!
So, from this day forward I am choosing to tell my mind “work” is really “play”. Also, if I make work my play, then I don’t work a single day of my life. It is all in my perception!
As the late Wayne Dyer used to say, “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” From this day forward I’m going to allow myself to view “work” as a walk in the park, and watch that playfulness rub off onto my clients.
It is time to lighten up and not take life so gosh darn seriously!

It was another day, steeped in frustration, in the therapist’s cold office with my seven-year-old, feeling helpless and hopeless. He was angry, I was frustrated and simply out of ideas about how to help him.
The therapist mentioned a book that might be helpful titled, “Catch Them Being Good”. I never did buy the book but got the gist, just by the title.
As a student of the Law of Attraction, I got busy focusing on all the great qualities of my son. I caught him being good at every turn. After a few months, I saw his traits I did not care for slowly fall away. The traits I admired and complimented continued to grow and flourish.
This process didn’t happen overnight, but began to take hold with practice and persistence.
Now, I focus on the good in my son, my husband, my friends, my students and my clients. This idea of acknowledging the goodness in people will transform not only their lives but yours as well, faster than most anything else.
Give goodness its due. Give it an honest chance to win the day. Give this phenomenal prescription a try and you may soon find out you can stop seeing a therapist, and your relationships will be filled with more harmony and ease.

Information pours through people daily, with the exact information I need to hear. This morning a fellow customer at Peet’s coffee told me to listen to Matt Kahn on YouTube. Because my intuition told me it was a “hell yes” action, I went home and turned on my computer and watched.
Matt Kahn proceeded to talk about the inflammation of the personality is what creates the ego to go awry. Let me preface this with that Kahn states the personality is a component of the soul (not of the mind) and carries on with you after you pass. Kahn goes on to say that the inflammation of the personality arises when the nervous systems gets out of whack, which then creates an allergic reaction to life.
According to Kahn there are four types of inflammation:
2. VICTIMIZED inflammation is when you feel like you are getting the short end of the stick, or that God is out to get you. The balanced state is called DISCERNMENT where you get to pause and choose a different path.
3. ENTITLED inflammation is where you think everything belongs to you or everyone should serve you. The balanced state is WORTHINESS.
4. NEEDY inflammation is where you feel you need to drain those around you. The balanced is OPENNESS.
According to Kahn inflammation or the allergy decreases when our nervous systems is balanced. By slowing down the breath, connecting with personal insight, worthiness and discernment the inflammation or allergy will cease to exist.
So if your nervous system doesn’t go into overdrive, those inflamed parts of your ego will dissipate. You will find yourself no longer feeling the need to be right, a victim, entitled or needy.
So grateful I wasn’t allergic to the gentleman on my path this morning, because I learned and blogged about inflamed personalities and how it affects the ego. Hope this helped you and wishing you a calm nervous system so you can go out into the world and thrive.
Namaste and feel free to share if you enjoyed it. Thank you!
