Seeing the Light

onefootup-tracynolinbeerman-seeingthelight.jpg

When the sky is dark and stormy, it is hard to remember that the sun always shines.  We know this to be true, but sometimes it feels as if the sun will never come out.

There are moments like that in each of our lives.  As if the dark clouds of our circumstances will never shift and we will never see the light of day.  But, just as the sun always shines behind the stormy sky, our true and shining self is always there, behind the circumstances, calmly awaiting our choice to see the light.

It may feel very real, like we are bound by the dark clouds of our circumstances.  The truth is that we bind ourselves to the dark clouds.  We have choice in every moment.  To shift our thinking and choose to see the light.  Think of the power in that.


Try This:

  • *Breathe baby breathe  Breath is a powerful function.  It is both voluntary and involuntary.  It can be used to energize or it can be used to calm.  However you use it, it will always bring you back to NOW.  To the present moment.
  • *A Grateful Heart  Seek abundance and you shall find it.  Start a gratitude journal.  Make a point every day to find 3 things you are grateful for.  You will begin to see an abundance of beauty in the world when you are looking for it.
  • *Shifting Perception  It is unrealistic to move straight from anger to joy but you can choose to make small shifts in your perception.  You can choose to think:

I AM shifting into peace.  I AM shifting into joy.  I AM shifting into seeing the light.


Slight shifts in our thinking can completely change the trajectory of our lives.  One thought at a time.

Shine Brightly,

Tracy

On BEing

onefootup-tracynolinbeerman-on-being.jpg

Each day I shower.

Each day I imagine.

Each day I shower as the woman I imagine myself BEcoming.

 

I put her on.

I act as if I AM that woman.

The woman I am BEcoming.

 

I see the steam.

I smell the shampoo.

I feel the warm water run down my back like she does.

 

I think.

I plan.

I shower as if I am the future me.

 

I create future memory.

Cells of recognition.

Of how incredibly amazing it feels to be the woman I am 3 years from today.


Try this:

  • Imagine yourself 3 years from today.  Loving your life. 
  • Put it on with your 5 senses.  What do you see, feel, hear, smell, taste?
  • Ask yourself "What step would my future self tell me to take today?"
  • Take that step.

Fun. Flow. Freedom.

Shine Brightly,

Tracy

Winding Up

Old watch As we near the end of the year, the temptation is to wind down, go into hibernation, take a long winter snooze.  To spend these last few weeks getting ready for the holidays and then crashing until February or March.

This year, instead of winding down, I am choosing to Wind Up.

I’ll be:

Winding Up my awareness

Winding Up my goals

Winding Up activity

Winding Up for the mountains I will move in 2017

I am recharging now rather than in January when everyone else is resting.  Gaining momentum now instead of losing steam.  Creating my life now instead of getting started in the New Year.

I’ll be getting really clear about what I want so I can design a year I love.  I’ll be taking note (without judgement) of the lessons learned in 2016.  I’ll be using these notes to guide me in making 2017 my best year yet.  I’ll be asking myself these 3 important questions:

What was I doing?

What worked?

What didn’t?

Time is precious.  What will you do with yours?

I AM creating a life I love.

 

Discover. Empower. Balance.

Be Well,

Tracy

Abundance

dsc_0230-640x427 It is so easy to fall into the appearance of lack.  When we focus on lack, that is exactly what we will see.  We will find every example of what is lacking in our lives and the world.

Lack of money.

Lack of time.

Lack of freedom to do what we truly desire.

It is just as easy to focus on abundance.  In fact, it may be even easier to focus on abundance than on lack.  All we need to do is step out into nature.  There is abundance all around us.

Just the other day my daughter and I were driving through the city and saw literally hundreds of birds sitting on rows of wires above the street.  Each in its own spot.  Chirping to its own tune.  Waiting for some unheard cue to move on to the next set of wires or fortunate tree.

What a blessing.  This thing called life.  It continues regardless of our circumstances.  Grass continues to grow, bunnies continue to multiply, hundreds of birds continue to migrate in unison from north to south each fall and spring.

Try this when you start going down the rabbit hole of lack

Stop.

Take a breath of life.

Be grateful.

Get outside.  Look for the abundance that surrounds you.  Take note of all that you have and you will begin to see more examples of the abundance in your life.

 

Discover. Empower. Balance.

Be Well,

Tracy
