You Are Free!

Do you get that your environment comes in response to your thoughts?  So often people play it backwards and their thoughts come in response to their environment.  That’s why we are quite often wanting to control everything in our world.  The basis of life is freedom; you are so free that you can choose to direct your thought anywhere!  And your freedom will truly come when you learn to exercise the power of your own focus.“  ~Rev. Angela Peregoff

Nothing else needs to be said…now go choose your thoughts wisely!

Do not allow the distractions of your day, your body, and your thoughts to own you. Step outside of the body and observe it as a vehicle that you instruct, a vehicle that transports you through time and space and documents experience. When you have a thought of someone who has passed into spirit, you are with them. When you hold a thought of disease, you start to become it. When you have a thought of limitation, you are gifted it. Where your thoughts are is where you dwell, it is your creational address. This address then becomes your quantified universe and defined field of light. Redefine who you are to yourself and then it will follow as the day follows the night that you will be re-defined in every cell of your body, and level of your life.  Do not be humbled by your own light, for it is grander than you can conceive. That is your Divine Right and your Divine Inheritance. All things belong unto you.“  ~Rev. Angela Peregoff

There was a study done recently on goal-setting.  100 people were asked if they had goals for their life and out of that 100, only 10 people said yes that they had goals.  After following those 10 goal-making individuals, they found that only 2% of them actually went on to achieve their goals.  What was different about that 2%?  Why did they go on to achieve their goals but the other 8 did not?

I travel all over the world and have spoken to many different types of audiences.  I have facilitated lectures to CEO’s all the way to upcoming female leaders in Gambia, Africa that could not read, write or speak English.  One thing I find in common with all of my audiences is that when I ask the question, “Who in here knows what they want?  Who has goals for their life?” I get the deer in the headlights look.  A few stragglers raise their hands (that 2%), but the others act as if I just asked them a question in Swahili.  It still to this day puzzles me as to how any of these individuals make decisions in their life not knowing what they want?

One myth many seem to believe is that life just happens and our job is to respond to life in the appropriate way.  That could not be further from the truth.  That is like saying you are a pinball in a pinball machine getting knocked around this way and that by life and you just have to take it.  I choose to believe something different.  I choose to believe that creating our life the way WE want is a God-given right.  We are the Michael Angelo’s of our lives…we are the creators.

What is different about that 2% who go on to be creators of their lives?

  1. They take the time to define their priorities – what are your top three priorities in your life right now…in order?  Family, career, physical health?  There is no wrong answer.  If you do not know what your priorities are, everything, my friends, becomes a priority!  Priorities shift and change as you change.  Define them today and revisit them often.
  2. Their behaviors match their word – once you have identified your priorities, make sure your behaviors match what you say.  That is called self-integrity.  If I were a fly and followed you around all day long, at the end of the day, I should be able to tell you what your priorities are by watching your behaviors.  If your behaviors are not in line now, make adjustments.
  3. They define very specifically what they want – make a bucket list of things you would like to do, have or accomplish before you “kick the bucket.”  Be as specific as you can (color, place, time).  Do not worry about how what you identified will come to pass, just write it down.  If it pops into your mind, it goes on the paper.
  4. They have a plan of action – take the top 3 items on your bucket list and make a plan of action – dates and all.  Identify what you need to do, piece by piece, to accomplish this goal.  Work backwards from the end point to today.  Have the self-discipline to stick with it.  Ask yourself why you want this goal so bad and if you want it so bad, why haven’t you achieved it yet?  Make a plan of how to overcome these obstacles before they arrive.
  5. They have an undying belief in themselves and see their goal as already accomplished – the old adage of seeing it before you believe it has really thrown a glitch into the thinking of many individuals in achieving their goals.  The true equation of manifesting what you desire is to BELIEVE IT, DO IT, HAVE IT.  You must believe a thing is true first in order to act accordingly. Your believing begins with your thoughts:  your conditioning leads to a thought; every thought leads to a feeling; every feeling leads to an action and this equals your end result.  Change your thinking and change your life (there is a great book with that as the subtitle coming out in 2 weeks!  Stay tuned… J)

Starting today, begin to believe you have the right to life; the right to live that life the way YOU want to.  Go grab a “paintbrush” and start your masterpiece.

“To create the new, first you must imagine it, then you embrace it, and finally love it until the invisible becomes true for you.”
~Rev. Angela Peregoff

I thought the title for my blog today was fitting because it bears two meanings; one, I will be starting the 40 hour trek to my new home in Scottsdale, AZ on Wednesday of this week, moving my whole life as I know it 3000 miles away, and two, this whole weeks focus is on moving…moving your dreams into action, moving and taking care of your body and aligning your soul vision with movement.

We all have a secret dream or vision of what we would like our lives to look like.  Whether it is to live in a certain place, to have a certain career or to be a certain type of person, it is a vision nonetheless.  Many times our vision remains just that…a vision.  We get caught up in the fears and the “what if’s” and never take the steps to allow our vision to manifest.  Our ability to be able to make our vision a reality is part of our self-responsibility.  The whole purpose of our life on Earth is to learn our lessons through life experiences.  If we limit those experiences based on what others think or what our ego considers “safe,” we do ourselves a major injustice.  We allow our vision to die at the hands of the illusion of fear.

Two helpful tools to get you started on turning your vision into a reality is one, to focus 2-3 times a day on the middle of your forehead.  Smack dab in the center of your forehead sits your third eye chakra.  A chakra is an energy center (we have several of them throughout our body but 7 main ones) that allows or blocks energies from entering your psyche and soul body.  Each chakra has a theme and this theme is allowed to manifest in your life if you keep that energy center free and clear of clutter – i.e., negative thoughts and fears.  The third eye chakra has a theme of “seek only truth.”  It is your chakra of “sight “and allows you to see the deeper and spiritual truths about yourself and the world around you.  Visualize a stream of white light from the heavens surrounding your forehead 2-3 times per day.  White light is very powerful and cleanses any area where it is sent.

Secondly, the crystal Iolite is very powerful in helping you move into action toward your vision.  Iolite is the vision stone and has the power to bring joy into your life and clear away any obstacles that are getting in the way of you achieving your ultimate vision.  You can buy crystals at any new age shops where they sell incense and other spiritual items as well as on line.  Sleep with this crystal under your pillow this week and allow your sleeping dreams to assist you with action steps on how to turn your vision into a reality.

There is nothing blocking you from realizing your greatest vision other than yourself.  Once you start to take action, you soon realize that what you feared is not even a reality…it only exists in your mind.
