Building Your Best Life

From WITHIN your HEART, your VISION as your Inner Pathway

You are currently browsing the Life choices 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 Best Life begins with me

Hi and welcome back,

This is a statement as much to you as to me.

In my own life – like many of you – change is happening.

In fact, CHANGE is all there is.

Look around you, look within you. Our bodies are the perfect example of eternal change, with each breath, each moment our cellular structures continue to regenerate, to rebuild our bodies. YEAH! a whole new body within one year, some say. I would tend to trust the resources, as they are among the most prominent  health science professionals on the planet.

Look around at the planet, swirling, faster and faster, renewing itself, its cycles, shifts, changes each days weather is different, unique even if only slightly observable to our naked eyes. Even the GPS of each spot on the planet is changing, constantly, growing, shifting, evolving, expanding.

Isn’t that our job, to grow, shift, evolve and expand.

So, let’s face it… change is who, why, and what we are. Being in the now is the key to making the best of the changes, shifts and movement that we experience.

I have relocated back to my HOME state of Colorado. No I wasn’t born here, but it is where I came when I was 20 and have made my HOME, raised my family which is growing, changing again, expanding. With another grand child due this week, another boy, and boy oh boy am I a proud grandma. I missed out on the first year of the current ‘baby’ now 17 months old and he is such a delight, filling my soul with such joy… and there are the girls who live in Florida, who I have only seen 4 times in their now 14 and 9 years. If I could change anything that is definitely one thing I would change. I would see them at least twice a year.

In order to change my own circumstances, which also means addresses, again, I need you. I need to help more people, to give, to serve… for without a client base my work is not work but only fruitless efforts toward a selfish vision, to live my passion and purpose.

As I focus on writing my book I have surrendered to the what is, making the best of where I am, in between stages of my thirty years as a life strategist and an entrepreneur who specializes in how the living environment provides a safe haven, a sanctuary of beauty and nurturing support for each of its occupants.

I often ask “Is your house holding you hostage?” and upon closer examination we, my client and I, discover the causes of what is going on in their lives.

I just had a very fun and exciting conversation this week with a previous client who is currently having difficulty and we examined her four lucky directions. (We each have a power direction, 4 lucky directions,  and 4 unlucky direction that influence our lives.) In the course of a few pictures emailed to me I was immediately able to see the reasons for great shifts that I recommend for her greater good and improved alignment.

I speak of alignment, balance and clarity often. For without these three factors in place, the journey we take is akin to traveling without a map… Ever feel lost, dazed and confused?

If you are experiencing changes that feel inappropriate and not of your choice, for your highest good. There is something you can do about it… You can take action and email me.

You can ask for help and I am more than available and willing to help. And my promise to you is you get to decide the value. What is 45 years of expertise worth to you? What is expert status Feng Shui consulting worth to you?

If you are losing your home and being forced to move, PLEASE do you homework and find the right home, not just another address. Your address really matters, the direction of your front door and your sleeping direction really matter and either create success or chaos. Which do you want to bring forth into your life? Have you had it, more than enough, strife and struggle.

It can be different. It can be another way.

It is up to you, CHOOSE!

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.

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…

WHAT I KNOW FOR SURE

Hi and welcome back,

Over the past few months I have been making every effort to rebuild my business by beginning again, by taking the past and transforming it into my new path, a future of transition and transformation.

Who better to learn from than one who has been there.

I AM THERE!

I too learn and understand that until this process is fully written and experienced into what we might call the end result there is much that is still uncertain.

What I want to share at this time is that in order to better serve you I have to stop serving you here for now, or pretending that you are there to serve. You are not there, not here.

I wish you were, but we both know you can take wishes to the bank and my livelihood is at stake here.

Having lost my home, my father, my daughter and so much more, all that I felt the meaningful things in life my business went too. So, starting all over from scratch with income from only early Social Security… talk about poverty overnight… my worse nightmare came true in a very short period, only a few months to go from The Feng Shui Queen, to dethroned, to homeless.

Now, a couple of years later I am not homeless, but a renter, sharing the home of someone else. Certainly a step up from spending time in my car on the road, searching for where could I go to live that I could afford.

Other circumstances landed me in the Boise Idaho area. Not that I would call this home, I can’t. I don’t have a home. I don’t have a job. I don’t know anyone and those I have met think I am a little left of far right, from another planet. Feng what????

So, for now I am going to FOCUS on my Feng Shui blog, to share what I do know for sure… that bad Feng Shui comes into the lives of even those who know a lot and have helped hundreds change their lives, improve their relationships, careers, even their finances… at the expense of not getting paid for what I give. Well, I am going to continue to give. If I had known what I know now I would not be in this situation.

WHAT I KNOW FOR SURE is that from scratch, from nothing it is very difficult to create anything, much less instill the trust of strangers… who is this person called Rhonee, The Feng Shui Queen?

I invite you to go over to www.TheFengShuiQueen.com and follow the information that has been around for just a few THOUSAND years helping people around the world improve their lives.

No joke… ancient wisdom for modern results… just like the Law of Attraction, no longer a secret…but the wisdom we need now more than ever.

Thank you, see you there… as Building Your Best Life continues its journey into the end result, my own journey back…

Life Style STRATEGIES – for Building Your Best Life

What I now call ‘Building Your Best Life’ is the current results of over 35 years as a life style strategies coaching experience.  Now don’t get the wrong idea. I am not finished, just at the gate, on a new road… and stopping to allow some reflective insights.

 

From the beginning of my career I have brought insights, creativity and solutions to the issues, concerns and problems of others. I always had my own life experiences to use as a foundation, for I always had something that I could take exception with and stew about. Now that brings me to the real insight… It is never helpful to approach life from that end of the scope; A bit like shooting yourself in the foot.

 

Boy, did it take a long time and a very long road to come to that ‘here’s your sign’ experience. If you are not redneck or country fan you may not have a clue what I am talking about but if you do you too are laughing your head off; Funny how life can be funny, after the fact.

 

For some fun and laughter check out… www.You Tube.com and search for Bill Engvall, Travis Tritt, Jeff Foxworthy, Larry, the Cable Guy… and if you don’t find yourself rolling in the aisles there is something really wrong…so call me and I’ll get you help!

 

Now here is another funny…. All this time I thought it was Jeff Foxworthy that did this skit… HERE’S YOUR SIGN…

 

Only through the wisdom of crone can we begin to know that the life manual has been missing and what we thought all along is all of a sudden proven wrong; FALSE…

 

Do you get that? Yes or yes? 

 

Can you remember times where you thought you were RIGHT and nothing or no one would change your mind; absolutely not, never…not in a million years.

 

And now, you can sit back and tell the stories and laugh. Yes, laugh at yourself and the experience of being wrong, but not willing to admit it.

 

And everyone else laughs with you. That’s wisdom.

 

Wisdom is found only when you know that you don’t know… very much.

 

So, let’s today, Easter Sunday, as the beginning of a new thought, that everything can be perfect, just as it is… bless it and learn from the wisdom of having what you have, as creator, creative expression and a miracle.

 

Until next time… Today, NOW is all you have… so make the best of it.

 

Veronica,

a365daylife… one day at a time…

Let’s make it together… your vision, dreams and goals are MY WHY…

Building Your Best Life, Let’s imagine together!

When we want something other than what we have we are invited to imagine.

Einstein gave us his gift of wisdom with  ’imagination’ is more important….

So, let’s imagine together.

What does Building Your Best Life really mean to you?

Sometimes when we imagine we get some of the ideas and details and other times there are areas that remain vague, allowing for expansion of the original thought.

As I continue to Build my own best life, and God knows that it is a work in progress… seems like my childhood home, always under construction.

only a glimse

only a glimse

The vision, plan and drawings are on the board for revision, taking a second look, fine tuning the details, working out the kinks, spit and polish some would say… redlining, the architectural term… and my red pen is moving across the drawings with both ease and grace…

So, until next time… stop and think about what you imagine your desires, those ideas in the making… daydream a little and write it down. For in writing it down it becomes more clear.

Just as I have been advised to read this aloud, to hear what I am saying gives me greater clarity about what it is I want to impart. For if I can’t see clearly the outcome of my efforts on your behalf how can I possibly give you the very best of what I have to give.

Prepared to give you the very best… focused, clear and committed to BE the very best life design coach out here… just for you. Thanks for coming.. The door is open, come on in.

Veronica… go to the contact page and let me know you want to discuss your own personal building project… from imagination, vision to a fully constructed castle.. your very own sanctuary…from WITHIN.

Writing the script for Building Your Best Life

By the numbers – a power play day

Have you ever noticed that the numbers of each day has their own unique power?

Today, the 28th day of January, where January is a 1 and 28 adds also to 1 and our year of 2009 adds to 11, so today is an 1:1:11 

Now what does that mean you might ask… more than anything it is the power of 4 for new beginnings represented by 1.

So, let’s get off to a new start, new beginnings…

Previously we were addressing the subject of writing your eulogy… what did you write down? Let’s go on with this ….

What will they say about you?

Better yet, it is only what you feel about your journey that matters. One of our biggest mistakes is to live our lives for them, through them, and often as them.

How will you be seen by others when they come to celebrate your life?

Where are you in your own experiences?

Through the process of writing down your vision, dreams and intentions,  you are  able to receive a clear Big Picture of how life ‘could’ be. Statistics prove that those who have written down their vision, values, and have clearly defined passion, purpose and goals to achieve in exercises like this are the most likely to be successful in life.

Will your life be experiences BECAUSE I SAID SO? … Literally and figuratively… most likely. So, watch what you ask for… you just might get it.

In fact, you have already and will continue to get what you ask for…

Do you like your results so far?

It is most interesting that once the writing is complete and laid aside, put in a drawer and found years later, few find that they are surprised at the results. Most find that life showed up just like they thought it would and most even better.

How about you? What kind of grade would you give your life experiences?

Is your life a ten?

Just ASK, and it is given. The kind of support you are seeking is seeking you.

It’s your turn… your comment or email with question gets you the personal support of life strategy coaching from over 30 years of helping others achieve knowing who you truly are, defining what it takes to get from here to there… lifes jouney 365 days at a time…starting NOW. Today, what will you do to have the better life you want… and will to ask for help achieving?

Contact information is on the contact page or your comment below will get my attention as well.

Veronica… making a difference one life at a time.
