Building Your Best Life

From WITHIN your HEART, your VISION as your Inner Pathway

You are currently browsing the Building Your Best Life category.

The Weather Report – inspiration is in the forecast.

Each day I am blessed to have the time and opportunity to read my emails… most are inspirational… for I really need the outside perspective that fuels my soul.

As I live in this time of challenge, change and transition every ounce of encouragement is food for my soul.

Today I applaud Mac Anderson of Simple Truths for the new book and lovely poem, movie, DVD and book he has birthed. Learning to Dance in the Rain.

His story is filled with life of miracle upon miracle from what we would probably call hardship… our outside looking in perspective. But from the inside the person whose story he tells doesn’t see it that way.

The truth is it is how we see it that matters, that counts and creates our life experiences.

I invite you to view the short movie as I did… it changed my perspective of today and hopefully all my tomorrows.

What kind of support are you looking for? Each one of always knows where we are and what we feel is missing.

Sarah Breathnach sends us the message “When we choose NOT to focus on what is missing from our lives but ae grateful for the abundance that’s present…we experience heaven on earth.”

I hope you are experiencing heaven on earth.

Your thoughts, questions are appreciated. If I can help you please email me. You can find contact information on the contact page.

Building Your Best Life begins WITHIN

From the very beginning of my own journey of finding my life path, knowing who I am and what I wanted began as a very procosious child. I knew, and still know that my creativity is what fuels my soul.

When I am in environments that are not stimulating I immediately feel drained, down, even depressed. I feel that depression is almost always from environmental conditioning. Either from the physical space itself or the people surrounding who do not honor, acknowledge or appreciate us, the others around them.

I know you know what I mean. You too have had this kind of experiences.

When we are in the company of others who always complain, talk about the politics or religion or even their work, kids or neighbors… something is always wrong.

And BOOMERANG something else happens to both you and them to bring more bad feelings forth. You feel helpless to change the situation or circumstances… STUCK and more stuck.

The ONLY way to change the situation is to separate yourself from the situation. GET OUT. Take off, walk out, take a drive, move – something. WHATEVER it takes.

I know and use the white light, the protective bubble, and other boundaries techniques. I know and use turn it around, think a different thought, send white light, say Thank You for the experience… and each of these are great practices… and in the end I usually still feel ucky… for a time. Refreshed with a bath is usally my best clearing method. Water cleanses best. Try it. You can’t get out of a bath or shower feeling the same way as when you went in.  Breathe deep and blow out the feelings … turn on your favorite music, let is enhance and change the vibration in the space, sing along. You will feel better. I know I do.

Taking the time and space to refresh, to feel, know and see the perfection of the experience, the lessons before you is where the real gift is… FROM WITHIN.

This an other techniques for supporting yourself through the everyday life experiences is what Building Your Best Life is about. You Build it one moment at a time… be here NOW, nowhere else, now here!

Until next time,

I could not have said it better – Best Intentions for Building Your Best Life

I write something almost every day, today I read and found that I could not have said it better. The following is one of the very best ways to implement the core steps in Building Your Best Life.

What do I mean by Building Your Best Life? The very idea that your life may not be serving your best interest or feeling like your ideal dreams may leave you questioning what can I do to improve, to be happier, to love my life.

Daily OM is one of my resources for inspiration. Even as a life strategist and coach I feed my well with inspiration from a number of mentors and models… it is all about perspective. This resources helps me keep my perspective. 

What is your perspective? Is your dreams serving you well? 

Do enjoy the following article from Daily OM.

Outlining Your Intentions
Making a List of What You Want
The universe is aware of both the concrete goals we actively pursue and the nebulous dreams we have not yet begun to refine. Neither our struggles nor the daydreams that inspire us are beyond the range of universal perception. Yet to manifest our aspirations, we not only need to know what it is we generally wish to achieve; we also need to clearly articulate these aims to ourselves and the universe. When we create a list of what we want, citing each item in as much detail as possible, our aspirations take on new substance. What was once a mere wish becomes real and achievable when put into words. As you pour the contents of your heart and soul into your list, your well-defined ambitions become a part of you, and the universe responds to your new determination by placing opportunities related to your objectives in your path.

Whatever the nature of your desires, your list can help you channel your intellectual and emotional power into your efforts to realize them. The list you create should not simply be a record of your individual goals. Rather, it should be a comprehensive, exhaustive catalog of each target you want to reach and your reasons for aiming for them. This may mean that your list will encompass many pages of text, since when you write down and review your ambitions, you empower yourself to more accurately direct your goal-realization efforts. You then also have a framework in place that helps you distinguish success from setbacks. If you keep your list in a convenient spot and review it daily, you will inadvertently reaffirm your conviction to your aspirations, demonstrating to the universe that you are truly devoted to your chosen path while keeping your objectives fresh in your mind. If you have an altar, this would be a great place to keep your list.

As you compose your list, try not to edit or judge what you have written. Some of what you want may seem outlandish when considered in the context of your current circumstances. Whether you are destined to fulfill the items on the unique long-term agenda you create in a year, 10 years, or 20 years, if you are free with your ideas and understand that you may not bring these dreams into the realm of reality for some time, your list will attract the universe’s benevolence even as it energizes and inspires you.

When you are ready to take action, don’t forget that having the support you deserve to help you stay on track and be held accountable is the best way to achieve your desires. Life coaching is my craft, my passion and purpose. Without you to assist, my list is unfulfilled.

A simple comment can bring help into your life journey. Let’s Build Your Best Life together. Where two or more are gathered… magical things happen.

How to be the creator of your hearts desires!

In order to HAVE anything you have to declare, claim and affirm its presence. That means present tense, already here knowingness. That is difficult for most and near impossible for others to even conceive.

 

With each word we speak there is a thought that affirms our beliefs. With each I can’t, I don’t have, you only further affirm that which you don’t have, don’t want… boomerang and you get more of ‘THAT’. Ouch.

 

I have been down this path of both being the magical manifestor and being stuck not having any of the results I have said I want to experience.

 

I have plenty of friend, clients, and money –name it and you will have more of it. … Feel it, mean it, declare it, say it, own it and it will become your reality.

 

Wayne Dyer is one of my favorite teachers, mentors and author.. “you have to name it to claim it”… need I say more. And of course, his latest book, ‘No More Excuses’… We make excuses for our ‘not having’, another profound declaration, and our worst habit. How many do you have?

 

I had plenty. And then I stopped.

 

So, when I GOT IT, I became really clear about the power of my word, and I stopped to get quiet enough to hear my inner voice. I then, and only then, begin to really easily achieve what I say I want to experience.

 

When and if it doesn’t happen you can then see clearly that there is a belief from WITHIN that is blocking your spoken words. That is where the SECRET really lies, in the lies we hold, that you don’t even know that you are holding them as your truth.

 

You will find that with the hubbub of DVD movie “The Secret”, Law of Attraction and the role creating your life there is far more to the story, process and practice of Being the creator of your life.

 

When our lives are filled with chaos, challenge and turmoil, the things that we don’t like, call stress and bring results that are the last thing are ‘wished’ for. It is then time to recognize our deliberate creative role in what ‘we’ have created. Yes, absolutely WE – YOU and I create all this mess – we then push, shove, deny, resist and blame others for our results, situations and circumstances.

 

Let me explain just how simple the evidence is – everywhere in our world.

 

Your world is filled with your most powerful and deadly tool, your word. You say, I ‘never’, I don’t, I can’t, I won’t… you fill in the blank.

 

Only because I too have been guilty of such language and the immediate consequences of such self-talk can I so adamantly share the evidence, unwanted results of such language.

 

How we speak to ourselves and to others is directly reflected in our experiences. What you fear you manifest faster and first, what you complain about brings more of the same, what you affirm with positive I AM and I HAVE statements brings the wanted results; Declare your hearts desires; magnetic Universe – supporting you with the how that comes when we trust! Boomerang!

 

For help in taking the next steps to making the shifts you want to change your results… for personalized life coaching with Veronica, who brings you over 25 years of life strategic planning expertise.

 

If there is anyone who can help you make the changes, easily and effortlessly, it is Veronica. You want support from someone who has traveled the journey so that you can take the shortcuts… she is your go to gal.

What are you are magnet for? Boomerang!

We live in a magnetic Universe… EVERYTHING is energy and the energy we put out is boomeranged right back… CATCH!

ANYTHING and everything that I or you… and I include myself for I too am guilty far more than I’d really like to own up to but I too am human and learning…

KARMA has come alive…

I repeat, ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that you or I regard in any way as less than perfect is a judgement and will, does and absolutely comes back … multiplied.

GET THAT….

The LAW is magnetic. If you want it love it… if not bless it for this too shall pass. It is only a breath, thought… but is it one you want to continue to experience.

You cannot split a magnet there  is positive and negative polarity… if you want positive BE positive; if you are pushing back on anything that is negative response, reaction and creation…

What are we creating?

I know sounds easy to stay positive, love what is… but are we capable of BEING in this joyous state of accepting, gratitude, appreciating, allowing, willing, receptive, loving, honoring, acknowledging. Namaste; are you seeing, feeling and unconditionally loving each moment, person, place or thing… that you/we have brought into our lives.

This is our Planet and we are the DNA, the one energy that is creating everything… our consciousness is the end result, outcome to all that we have and are thinking, believing – and the evidence is before us.

What are we creating?

Think about that one for a while…

Thank you for coming…

I’ll be back again soon.

THE KEY to success – Relationships

The keyword is RELATIONSHIP… without the relationships in our lives we would be ALONE, totally alone. Yet, we are never alone, not here on planet earth -it’s impossible.

How you relate to your SELF, your own knowing of who you are, the real meaning of your existance, the why you are here, as a gift to humankind, as Gods creative expression is your real WHY. God made life and life is who and what you are.

How you find, feel and forever express your unique gift is the purpose of your life.

Nothing happens without VISION – God had an image of what he wanted to create and you are no different. Vision is what is required for you to create your life. How you go about having a clear concise VISION is only achieved from a KNOWING. That KNOWING is only achieved from BEING in touch from WITHIN.

Its no play on words… WITHIN is where you really exist. Unless and until you get up close and personal with you, you will always be looking out there and trust me, it ain’t out there.

You are gifted with an inner voice, your knowing that you are God’s creation, an expression as unique as any snowflake, grain of sand or blossoming flower. Life gives you breath and energy, connection to all that is and yet individually unique.

How you go about KNOWing your true self and your gift is to listen to your HEART. The relationship that you have with God is through your heart. Only when you FEEL and listen to your heart do you really express life.

The one MIND, speaks through your subsconscious mind - and it is your job to understand the messages from the one mind. The trick to the subconscious mind is thatit  is both a recording machine. It is your free choice and power to program this machine. Free Will is expressed as  your DECISIONS and choices. When you want something you have to tell yourself how that want feels. Speaking the language of having the experience is how we bring about the experience.  The power is in the imagination, if you can conceive it you can achieve it.

So, until next time… think about how you are in connection and having a relationship with your heart and your subconscious mind.

Mentors and Mentees – being guided

I love it when I receive great emails with exactly what I would like to say – but they said it so eloquently that all I have to do is share. Today I received such a message.

On the way to success, which path are you taking:

‘The Silver-Platter – handed to you success or

The Inch-by-Inch Path.
At the other end of the spectrum, we have people who feel they must battle and scrape their way to success. Maybe they were told that they don’t deserve success. Maybe their family or friends said:
“Who do you think you are–you think you’re better than us?” It’s almost like these people NEED to show deep battle scars if they succeed. Then they can say “Hey, I paid the worst of prices for where I got!” I guess it’s good that they succeed, but I doubt they’ll ever enjoy their success.’

This is the one I most relate to… yes, I took the inch-by-inch road less traveled, the back roads, the unpaved route…

The Stepping-Stone Path.
It’s for those of us who weren’t handed success on a silver platter. It’s also for those of us who are not trying to make some statement about how many pints of blood we lost on the way to our goals.

This is the path for people who know that success will take some work, but we want to use every common-sense advantage we can along the way.

We’re very interested in becoming successful, but have no interest in making success harder than it needs to be.”

As we continue down the path, chosen and traveled, are you traveling alone or have you found your mentors to help guide the way.

With over thirty years of road trips I have a unique perspective about how to take the journey, where to start, how to proceed, what to share and how to guide. You, yes YOU are the reason I have taken this journey. For being able to help others along the way is my passion and my purpose. You don’t have to do it alone you know.

I am here, with guidance, assistance, listening, supporting and helping pave the way for the road you choose. You will find the support you desire and deserve.

My coaching is personal, still one-on-one and at very affordable prices. In fact, you can choose your own rate. I know that we often need to be flexible and giving especially in times like these.

If you are searching for your way, traveling without a map and want a guide, you have come to the right place.

I am here, for you.
Veronica,
where Building Your Best Life is providing the vision, foundation and structures to build a life that has more meaning and value, the life you truly want to live.

Your comment or email will get my attention and your response that will take you to the levels of success you dream of.

Thank you, until next time… stop, look and listen… the road ahead is open for your journey.

Because I Believe in YOU..

Memories are made of this. I remember that song. Do you?

Today marks some significant memories and reminders in my own life journey.

It marks the most special day in my life that we all cherish… that wedding day. A day of love and celebration of two hearts joined with promise. That dream and promise lasted for a few short years, the union a few more years without the celebration and promise. But the memory of those times remains and reminds me of when my heart was young, vulnerable and pliable.

Today marks the day when as the promises no longer were being celebrated, but were being acknowledged as over. My ex signed the divorce papers on the anniversary date and handed them to me saying Happy Anniversary sweetheart… That memory will always be with me for he had broken my heart and I his. Our promises to each other had not been honored. Our friendship had come to pass.

For ‘this too shall pass.’ Reminders that change is with us, at all times.

Today also marks the birth date of my favorite uncle. My Dad’s brother, Frank Herring, who was one of the most optimistic and fun guys anyone would ever want to meet, much less have as a major influencing factor in my life. Today I am reminded of his birthdate and I take this time to honor him as he passed from this plane last week. Out of the six brothers there is one that remains, the youngest, another great friend and uncle…Jimmy. A generation of brothers that have given and shared every life lesson for faith hope and family first. Salude amore.

We each have dates that are significant milestones along our life journey, reminders of times when we were happy, optimistic and rooted in our dreams. What makes these memories great is that as we work toward future dreams we can use the feelings we once had with purpose, as anchors to fuel the thoughts and feelings of how did it, does it feel to have our dreams come alive and into our lives. What powerful tools we have from within to ignite the fires within our hearts.

What dates, memories and reminders do you have that ignite your dreams?

I am celebrating the passing from my entreprenuerial journey as Rhonee, The Feng Shui Queen into a phase of passage, semi-retired, writing my book and preparing to bring you another special phase for visioning, live design and planning; the construction phase of rebuilding firm foundations, strong structures, powerful tools and tricks of the trade of architecture. Architecture for life, the business of building a better life.

www.BUILDingYourBestLife.com is emerging slowly as I take the time and follow my heart through insight and healing of transformation. You might say recycling the old. Take the parts and pieces from the graveyard of yesteryear and making them new again, in new form. Fashioning new and more creative ways of Being into more pliable and flexible experiences that will fit better and serve more.

Come on along… for the journey… My journey of passion and purpose as Phoenix Rising.

You will also soon find new products and services profiled and announced at www.DesignedLivingSolutions.com real soulutions (no typo) for all that I now bring to you is about the soul journey from WITHIN… where the map is invisible, yet clearly Divine.

Because I Believe in YOU..

Direct from Daily OM…

Hi and welcome back,

I don’t know about you but I have been feeling OFF for a time now. Today I ran away from home… well, even that is one of the hardest words for me to use. I don’t have my own home anymore… this economy thing hits home in more ways than one.

Does a 6 hours on the road constitute a ‘vacation’?

I arrived after my day of cruising through the mountains in SW Idaho, into Oregon, a nice 6 hour round trip, less than a tank of gas and dinner to cap it off. A $30 vacation… today that is as much as I can do… and refreshed, inspired and ready to get back to my writing.

Writing a book and a blog – several in fact… too much so you will see some changes coming.

I could not have said it better or more appropriately. Thank you to Daily OM… could not be more RIGHT ON… it’s not just me.

“Taking a Time Out
You Are Not Crazy
Most of us feel a little crazy from time to time. Periods of high stress can make us feel like we’re losing it, as can being surrounded by people whose values are very different from our own. Losing a significant relationship and moving into a new life situation are other events that can cause us to feel off kilter. Circumstances like these recur in our lives, and they naturally affect our mental stability. The symptoms of our state of mind can range from having no recollection of putting our car keys where we eventually find them, to wondering if we’re seeing things clearly when everyone around us seems to be in denial of what’s going on right in front of their eyes. For most of us, the key to survival at times like these is to step back, take a deep breath, and regain our composure. Then we can decide what course of action to take.

Sometimes a time-out does the trick. We take a day off from whatever is making us feel crazy and, like magic, we feel in our right mind again. Talking to an objective friend can also help. We begin to see what it is about the situation that destabilizes us, and we can make changes from there. At other times, if the situation is particularly sticky, we may need to seek professional help. Meeting with someone who understands the way the human mind reacts to stress, loss, and difficulty can make us feel less alone and more supported. A therapist or a spiritual counselor can give us techniques that help bring us back to a sane state of mind so that we can affect useful changes. They can also mirror our basic goodness, helping us to see that we are actually okay.

The main purpose of the wake-up call that feeling crazy provides is to let us know that something in our lives is out of balance. Confirm for yourself that you are capable of creating a sane and peaceful reality for yourself. Try to remember that most people have felt, at one time or another, that they are losing it. You deserve a life that helps you thrive. Try and take some steps today to help you achieve more balance and a little less crazy.”

I am human too.

A mountain drive was my healing process for today… Mother Nature has a wonderful way of bringing forth the perfect remedy.

Until next time, take care of yourself…
Veronica
