“Only as high as I reach can I grow,
Only as far as I seek can I go,
Only as deep as I look can I see,
Only as much as I dream can I be.”
In preparation for 12-21-12, please answer the following questions:
1. Are you reaching as far as you can for the things you want in your life?
There should be nothing on your “unwilling to do” list. As Mary Kay
Ash once said, “If you shoot for the moon and don’t make it, you will fall
among the stars!”
2. Are your dreams big? Or do you only dream of what you are sure you can achieve?
Dreaming is a muscle just like your bicep. The more you use it, the bigger
it gets. Don’t be afraid to dream big…what if dreaming big is the exact
state of mind it takes to make that dream come true?
3. Are you seeing everything in your life, even those things you consider “not so pleasant” about yourself?
In order to heal it, you have to feel it. And in order to feel it, you have to
be willing to see it. Growth takes depth…look into your life, not just at it.
12-21-12 is not about the end of the world…it is about the end of life as you know it. Those energies that kept fear, evil and darkness alive will be no more. Light now rules the house! Friday is simply one piece of a major shift that has been happening for the last several years. We were created to not just live our life, but to create it. And if you don’t mind me saying, most humans on Mother Earth have created a mess…not just for themselves but for those whose lives they touch as well. Mother Earth will now intervene. She needs to come back to a state of balance in order to support the new way of the light. If you have been living your life honestly, openly and with integrity…you are on the right track. If those three words do not describe how you have chose to live your life so far, you are in for a ride…A ride of your own creation.
Always remember…God does not do anything to you or allow things to happen. The world is about balance. We make a choice; send that choice out into the world and the world responds. Many of our choices over the last several decades have been fueled by individualism, hate, greed and fear. Some souls choose to sacrifice their life this time around to help restore that balance and to teach those of us left much needed lessons. Do not grieve your loss…celebrate their victory! They are true angels walking the earth.
Take time before Friday to reflect on your life and your choices thus far. As the cliché goes…Go to the light!!!
Note: The Journey Back to Self Blog will be taking a break and will resume on Monday, December 31, 2012.

What if you found out today that you only had one week left to live? Looking at your life as it is right now, can you honestly say you could die feeling as if you gave it your all?
Many of us live as if we have all of the time in the world. For your sake, I hope that you do. The truth of the matter is that none of us know when our cards will be up yet we act as if time is of no consequence.
I would like you to take a look at your life and ask yourself the following questions. I warn you; they may be hard to answer.
What would you do if you knew you had…
Now, look at your answers. Do they accurately reflect where you are spending the majority of your time now? If not, why not? And don’t tell me that you have responsibilities, no choice, your husband or wife won’t let you, blah, blah, blah. I’ve heard them all. Whose life is it anyways? This statement is not meant to be harsh or non-compassionate, but I ask you, when are you going to stop making excuses and live your life?
One question I ask myself when I want to whip myself back into reality is:
When I am lying on my death bed, will this matter?
The majority of the things you stress about will not even matter in five years. I know your mind is telling you that they will, but they won’t. Life changes in the blink of an eye and we live in a kind Universe. Everything, and I mean everything, happens to maintain balance, whether you agree with it or not.
Our most Divine gift as humans is the ability to create our own reality. We do that with our thoughts. If you focus on excuses, those excuses will become your reality. What you think about you bring about. It is truly that simple. Sound too good to be true?
What if it isn’t?
