Building Your Best Life

From WITHIN your HEART, your VISION as your Inner Pathway

You are currently browsing the LIFE DESIGN category.

Stupid is as Stupid Does… Forrest Gump said it best

Well, life IS… certainly a trip…

With the past few months, NO YEARS… of my journey I find that what I thought I knew… and what I know for sure… is that I know nothing for sure. I don’t know JACK!

Why do I say this you may be asking? Well, I ask myself everyday… what do I want? What can I do to feel better? What does my audience want of me?

The answer is clearly nothing… for I have no clients. Only spammers… why bother writing for those who would take and waste my time…

Why take the time to share what wisdom I have to share… for who. I can write in my own journal and keep my thoughts to myself… for who really cares. It is my life.

The intent in having this blog as well as the others is to impart something of value, that I have experienced, learned and hope add value by sharing -

Things in my own life have turned south… really south. The vision I hold or held is so blurred… and meaningless at this time… that I have closed my eyes..

I can’t bear to see…

I have said goodbye to almost everyone and everything that I thought mattered… the price to pay, the pain too great… there are some things that are priceless and others worthless…

Where is the value? I am looking for it – just as you might be.

I am looking within…

So, while I take this journey to find my own best life, to rebuild this house … create a new vision… draw up a new plan…

consider this site UNDER CONSTRUCTION…

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,

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!

Feeling stuck can be your key to opening your heart!

In response to questions that are coming in about feeling stuck. It is not uncommon. The events in our lives are not by accident. They are on purpose, to open us up to the soul journey that is screaming to get out, to be expressed.

Here is my response to such a question about being stuck.

Thanks for being open, for sharing with me.

I know what feeling stuck feels like. So many of us at this particular time are feeling this way. You ar enot alone. But it is personal when we want to have more joy in our lives. The both sides of the coin stuck, yet comfortable and uncomfortable are also very normal. That is the place of comfort with the known and fearful of the unknown.

 Anytime we are in this place, there is something deep within that is asking to come out, to come alive, to reemerge…for our soul knows its path and we are not listening, responding to its urging.

 Let me say, it won’t stop… your soul knows and that is your purpose here on earth…

 to follow that unique inner voice of knowing.

 Nothing shows up in our lives for no reason. Everything, everyone is a messenger.

 So, let’s take a walk through the events that have shown up. Use them as dream messengers…

 Get your journal out and write… write until you have the message very clear.

What have they to tell you? 

Who are the characters?

What do you love about the situation and what do you dislike about it?

 That will identify the love/comfortable and the dislike/uncomfortable aspects being revealed. Both are ways to get up close and personal with both sides of the coin.

 The coin is you… and it is in your loving embrace of this messenger that you will find the key that opens the door to the curiosity… that inner longing that wants out.

 

Thank you for taking the inner path… it is the WAY to heart healing and walking into the light of who you really are.

 

Take one step,… and keep going.

Know that I am here to guide your way.

 Until next time

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.

HOW TO Build IT and so that they will come

How does one BUILD your own field of dreams? You know the movie and the concept. first you have a dream. Where does that dream come from?

We are built to BE creators, designers and creators of our own life. The dreams come from WITHIN, the connection we have to our soul BEING and the passion of its purpose is to nudge us into the knowing that WE are special, a true and authentic gift. The visions we have, our grand designs are what and why we are here. No one else has our uniqueness… there are no others with our fingerprint, our signature – we are in fact the only DESIGN that came in this package, this body, at this time.

By tapping into the inner voices, visions and creative expression that is uniquely you, you come alive with a KNOWING that you must. You know that urge that just won’t let go.

The building your best life process begins with BEING still, quiet enough long enough to hear the voices of your soul. You know when you know, your guidance system, intuition, kicks you in the gut and says YES, now, do this!

The very best way to accomplish this construction process is in the power of 6 little words.

BE HERE NOW, LOVING WHAT IS!

If you can and will come to the place in your peace of mind and honoring of your hearts desires you will know what I mean. Gratitude is the first building block of creativity. Awareness through listening to the small quiet inner voice is the fuel that ignites the soul to say, OK I’m ready, when you are!

The journey is simple, being alive and awake to the moment, loving what you have created already, be CAUSE you have, is the mortor that holds the structure together.

So, what are you BUILDING? Your best life is the demonstration of the casa, castle, home or temple that is YOU.

The journey does not have to be alone… you can have the support you deserve, you can have someone who knows you are special, someone who won’t tell you you are crazy to want what you want. Those who take that path are unwilling to listen to their own hearts, at this time. They don’t know how to love themselves enough to also love you and honor your unique path… the creative expression of God that God sent you and only you to express.

Let’s do it together, leave your comments, ask your questions and let’s do it.

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.

When guidance comes

Hi and welcome,

If you have followed along you have seen that the parts and pieces to this life puzzle are being put together very slowly, in fact, even times when there is no action.

Life does happen that way. We are often not present for all the events that come our way, simply sitting in the bleachers.

It appears to me that when I asked for guidance during these times when it appears that my business appears to be gone… that the angels have taken over the TV remote. Seems every movie I watch has significant examples and answers to the questions I am asking. Subtle yet screaming, ‘are you listening’?

Movie after movie, and I am listen from within, getting the messages… stay the course, and just allow what is going on to be the perfect situation to learn from.

So, take care, write your question down, listen and watch to see what you stop on the next time you have the remote in your hand.

Admitting the Truth… how to build your best life

Hi and welcome,

One of the hardest things in life is coming to terms with failure… you know that step back to reflect, to take stock and to know that this too shall pass.

Since my beginning as an entrepreneur… I have struggled all along the way, where was the next client coming from…. the long spells in between this job and that project.

In 2004 when I lost my home to a mortgage scam… I lost everything I had worked 30 years for… and since I have made every attempt to rebuild, from scratch, from having nothing … and guess what it didn’t work.

Nothing has worked.

The hardest part is admitting that nothing has worked.

I come to the place of letting go.

I write articles for Synchronicity In Your Life, an online magazine and that too has passed. In January I wrote about letting go, and recently I write an extensive ebook taking that concept further… to where I really let go of all my dreams for they have brought more pain than pleasure.

We all know the meaning of INSANITY: Doing the same thingsd expecting different results.

I did things differently and still received the same results… the opposite of my desires… anything but what I want.

So, I let go…

What have I to share? How can I be a life coach when my life is nothing that I would wish upon upon anyone…

Thanks… for the message, for allowing me to accept my what is… a new path will emerge… I know it will… someday when
