It is Never Too Late To Make Things Right!

We have all gone through painful and devastating experiences; ;loss of a job, a loved on, ended relationship, financial issues, etc. We all have-all of us-from Donald Trump to someone’s grandmother.

And……you can get over it, and you can move on from here and make things right-you can!

If you have wronged someone, make it right-don’t delay, and do not allow fear and/or pride to keep you from facing your responsibilities to the people, places or things that you owe an amends to.

Not taking care of your business can land you in jail-that parking or speeding ticket you are ignoring is going to cost you more than you suspect. The credit card you are ignoring is ruining your credit. The car payments you are not making will result in your car being taken away. Your rent not being paid will result in you not having a home.

Absolutely nothing-not Christmas, Hanukkah, birthday, or what have you is worth the price you are paying right now. The people in your life, your family, will respect you a lot more if you take it easy this holiday season rather than going into lavish amounts of debt to please them. In reality, you are pleasing your ego’s idea of who you are-this is not based in reality-this is fear.

You have the choice in every moment to stop the spiral of financial or emotional debt you have created and set things right. Will it be hard for a while? Yea, it will hurt-a lot! And, you will be reversing an unconscious nightmare that you created one day when you let your ego talk you into a lie.

Stop spending what you don’t have; stop lying to the people that care about you just to impress them; stop kidding yourself into believing that you are different than you are-who and what you are is enough-you don’t need the big show!

Affirmation: The best holiday gift I can give myself and my loved ones is authentic and real. I can be 100% myself without the expensive bells and whistles

Goals:

  • Call her/him and apologize and make things right

  • Take that big expensive thing back to the store and get your money back

  • Use the money from your refund and pay that outstanding bill

  • Be honest with the people in your life and give them gifts that reflect your love and level of income

Tools:

  • Honesty

  • Integrity

  • Your 12-step Sponsor

  • Self-love

  • Self-respect

  • Honest book-keeping

  • calculator

  • bills

  • cash or debit (not credit)

Relaxing and Being Lazy Are Not The Same Thing

We can be so hard on ourselves! You know the truth when it comes right down to it-you really are a worker bee! Those of us that own our own businesses basically work 7 days a week, regardless of what others may think. We spend hours upon hours working out little details, etc. What is really difficult for us is to know when to say when and take a break-yes an entire day!

We track out twitter follows, and our blog follows and worry if we are not doing that one extra thing that everything will fall apart and we won’t have a business.

It is a decision not to give into fear. I have to make that decision every day of my life. Am I “there” yet? No-I’m not. I won’t get there, however, by allowing fear to keep me out of balance.

Yes, there are financial realities-and I am the creator of these. Do I have my life set up in such a way that my basic needs are met no matter what? If I do that, then I create the pace that’s right for me.

I had to learn to take time off when I was a school teacher. I am doing nobody any favours by living in a state of total stress and chaos-least of all the clients I serve. Keeping healthy boundaries around the basics: sleep, rest, food,social time; allows me to stay sane and effective

Affirmation: I know when my work day ends and I honour my down time

Goal: Really organize yourself so that you can be fully present to yourself and your Beloveds

Tools: Calendar, watch, day planner, schedule, peace of mind, integrity, open heart, self-love

Who The Hell Do You Think You Are?!

So here you are, stuck in your stuff-again. Spinning, spinning, spinning-annoyed and ready to go to a different page because even looking at these words is really annoying you!

You are the giver-and you are so proud of it too! You tell anyone who will listen-you are the giver. He/She/They are the addict/problem/your burden, but day-in, day-out, you stay. You sit on your anger because you are so freaking scared!

If you stop being their solution, their caretaker, their parent, then who the hell are you? What are you? Where have you been all this time? Where are you going? What is your purpose in life now?

Pretty scary shit eh? You’ve spent all this time and effort being a good person and where did it get you?

The truth is, entre nous, we both know it was never about them. This has all been a distraction because you are terrified of fulfilling your purpose! You hide behind people, places, and things because, long ago, you surrendered to your ego and believed all the lies your abusers told you. Deep down you know that.

Look, this is a critical time in the Universe. You can stop reading and go back and play the bullshit game some more, convinced you aren’t worth it and keep giving into evil, OR…..

You can just walk away. Pack a bag, get the kids/dog/cat/hamster/goldfish and just go. Find a 12-step meeting-ALANON is a good start.

Pick up all the stuff and just go. Stop reacting, and take responsibility. You created this mess/nightmare/junk and you also have the Power to shift it all and claim your birthright!

How the hell do I know? Ask any of my friends, SuperPerson….You are me a few years ago. Think of me as your Future Self begging you to wake up and take a deep breath and just let go! Let it all go!

Help will find you if you just let go! You are not alone, you never were. yes, they lied to you. Staying and spinning about that is not going to get you a new/better/first job. Go to Starbucks. settle in, and start job hunting-hell, start your own business! Think about all the God-given talents you are now free to make full use of because now you actually must!

Take a deep breath, call your best friend, and get on with it! It is time for you to finally own who the hell you are! You are a God/Goddess in training-own it and act like it! Fake it till you make it!Help and Love and Support are all around-just take responsibility and ask,but get on with it! The Universe needs you-we all need you!

Love and Light to you, SuperPerson!

I can prepare myself for the holidays so that I enjoy them!

It’s that time of year when some of us want to go hide in a cave til March. The noise, the laughter, the repetitive music, the loudness-it can feel like too much-whatever your faith tradition! But, one person cannot make it all go away-nor should you. You have options.

  • Just because your childhood sucked, you don’t have to keep bringing that into the now-accept the past, forgive and move on-I had to do it, you can too!

  • whenever you feel overwhelmed, take 3 deep breathes in and out and calm down-it is a choice-I have to do it too

  • surround yourself with gentleness-spend time with fun and low-key people so you can feel safe, but really enjoy yourself in a calm way

  • Remember what the whole point is-it’s about Light coming into the world- not whether or not you have enough money to buy your Mum/Dad/sibling/nephew/niece/godchild that really cool thing that you think will make them love you more. You are good enough just as you are

  • Spend time walking and moving your body to stay grounded, track your meds and watch your sugar intake.

Affirmation-The holidays are mine to enjoy!

Tools: Schedule, good trusted friends, faith, meds

Goal: Keep it real, keep it grounded, and keep it calm!

I was supposed to write the second instalment on Qabalah and Business, but I am celebrating a milestone today. I am off medication for depression and AD/HD-completely. I gently weaned myself off my meds over a period of several weeks.  I was diagnosed several years ago when I was working my 4th step in ALANON. The medication saved my life-literally. I am not writing this to use words like “cured” and “overcome” because I am not cured of anything, and I am beyond grateful for the medication, and those involved in the making of it.

Like many people, my childhood totally sucked. My family dealt with issues ranging from mental illness to Autism Spectrum, to abuse, to terminal illness. I had LOTS of learning, study and therapy after my mother died when I was 19. I was addicted to drama and chaos-many of us with Autism Spectrum issues are. I didn’t know I was depressed until I took the medication I was prescribed and experienced the difference. It was mind-blowing.

I get really frustrated with those who like to make things simpler or bigger than they are. Each of us is different. Just because I am not taking medication, it doesn’t mean I never really had depression and AD/HD or that I’m deluding myself by not taking medication now.

I did not walk away from the medication without something in its place. I pray, meditate and do rituals I learned through classes with The Modern Mystery School. They have enhanced my ALANON program and helped me stay clean and clear.

Today matters to me because I am able, as never before, to take full responsibility for my life. This is my task as a Coach and Guide for my clients-to lead them to a place where they can do the same-in their own time, in their own way, without judgment.

I am very grateful today, SuperPeople! Very grateful indeed!

 

Love and Light to you!

Believe it or not, it is possible to argue constructively with those you love. You don’t have to keep going around in the same circles, building up resentments and destroying the relationship.

Here is a list of things that really do work, if you use them.



    1. Don’t attack someone’s stated of being; talk about how they act-especially if you are getting into it with a kid.



i.e. “Quit acting like a jerk!” as opposed to “You are SUCH a jerk!”



    1. Speak from the “I”. i.e. “When you do a,b, and c, I feel like this”

    1. Telling someone to stop doing something has the same result as when you tell a kid to stop-it makes it worse. If someone’s personal habit bugs you, you need to ask yourself what is really going on because your reaction is a trigger of something else that’s bugging you. i.e. “WOULD YOU STOP BREATHING SO HARD!”….

    1. Getting into a physical altercation, other than playful sex between consenting, age-appropriate adults, is a bad idea. All this does is give into your ego

    1. Talk about and ask for what you need, don’t lecture the other person on their shortcomings. Their issues are not your beeswax!

    1. Stick with facts, not opinions. You are not the boss of them, nor are you a mind reader.



Anytime you get into a power struggle with anyone, it’s about ego; pure and simple. Walk away, cool down and get your mind set and open your heart.

 

Hang in there, SuperPerson! We all get into it sometimes!

 

Love and Light to you!

Today’s Affirmation

When I Write Neatly, I Stay Ahead of the Game

It may seem like a very simple thing for most people. Those of us with AD/HD and other Autism Spectrum issues, know how difficult it is to organize our thoughts. Many of us are so used to our minds moving faster than our hands for so long, that it has been impossible for us to write down our thoughts, lists or needs. When we slow down, we can do it!

Affirmation: I write slowly as I need to so I can read what I wrote

Goal: Write down important information slowly, and carefully

Tools: Pen and lined paper
