Building Your Best Life

From WITHIN your HEART, your VISION as your Inner Pathway

A Ray of HOPE

Today this gift came in and I have to share… It gives me HOPE, something I have not felt in a while.

A Tiny Drop of Water
By: Bob Perks

A tiny drop of water washed away the land and buildings
fell, floating away with other people’s dreams.

Roadways planned and formed by huge machines and men who
sweat and hammer the world into shape were pushed away with
little effort.

People ran and cars clogged highways in an effort to stay
ahead of the possible destruction that tiny drop of water
could cause.

“Wait!” you say. “It was much more than a tiny drop of
water. The streams overflowed and the rivers broke through
their banks, causing a wall of water to destroy those
things.”

Yes, but it was made up of tiny drops of water. Raindrops,
which together wore a path right through my yard with
little effort, made up of one drop, then two, then
thousands, millions… all together they changed the world,
our world.

Can’t you see the significance in that?

I want to change the world. I am tired, worn out from
weeping at the sight of still another death not just on the
field of battle laid out by warriors, but in the streets of
every city, in the fields of the impoverished, desolate
reaches of the world. They are dying in my country and
yours by bullet, by starvation, disease, arrogance,
stupidity and pride.

A tiny drop of water gave me hope.

I am but one drop in the sea of humanity, but like the
rain I can join together with others and wash away the
hatred and pain I anguish over. One drop, then two, then
thousands, millions… all together we can change the
world. Our world.I want to change my life. I am tired of
being in debt. I am worn out from trying to keep pace with
the world. I have tried my very best to get ahead and find
myself falling behind each step of the way.

A tiny drop of water gave me hope.

It fell upon the hillside just behind my house. One single
drop of water joined with others forming a stream.

Like trying one more time. Like doing one more thing. Like
pushing one more inch to reach the goal, the dream I long
to touch and make reality. All my little efforts make big
changes.

The little stream that ran down my driveway, never having
been there before, began as one single drop, until one drop
after another, trying again and again, washed the soil away
and moved the tiny pebble and eventually the rock.

I cannot push away the fear nor change my life overnight,
but if I dedicate myself to one single effort each and
every day, I will see the power of changing little things
to make a big difference.

A tiny drop of water gave me hope.

I am just one drop in the sea of humanity. But I have the
power to change my life and the sacred obligation to move
the world in the right direction.

How?

One drop, then two, then thousands, millions… all
together we change the world, our world.

A tiny drop of water gave me hope.

Today, is another new day, an invitation to feel better.

Today, one of my long time “friends” told me how she really feels about me. I am grateful for her truth. And the saying goes, what someone else thinks of me is none of my business. I now know that the word ‘friend’ has new meaning and one less person I need in my life. Thank you for sharing is all I have to say.

Today, I get to focus on how to live and love who I am… becoming and believing in me.

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.

…”Always true, under all circumstances, throughout history”

The four most profound words, always true, under all circumstances, throughout history, are “this too, shall pass.” According to Brian Tracy, one of my favorites and Eckhart Tolle, these four words are the ANSWER to HOW TO cope with, accept what is happening NOW.

Building Your Best Life is about being able to be happy with who you are, what you want, why you want it and how to achieve it.

What is your IT?

Being able to identify and really know your WHY you want what you want is a major key to being able to achieve your dreams. Being present to the NOW and what is, with complete acceptance is the KEY to being open, receptive and coming into the attractive vibration of your desires. The power of the words you choose to identify what you want really matters.

Defining your vision, with powerful words, images and passionate desire is what makes the difference. Being able to hold that powerful intention is sometimes where our greatest challenges are experienced.

So, when you are faced with any challenges or changes that feels out of place, out of character for your grand vision, stop… and be still with THIS TOO SHALL PASS. Being able to take this position will ground you, allow you to center and refocus on your desires.

I am being reminded each day of the WHAT IS and being with how life feels right now. With so much external challenges, changes and constant influx of ‘the sky is falling’ keeps me on my toes. Learning to be with silence, shutting out the media blitz and taking great care in what kind of conversations, communication and connection I am engaged in is making the biggest difference.

How about you? Are you managing your input, guarding the gates, being mindful of holding the vision that keeps you on track with your own personal journey of living with passion and purpose.

Building Your Best Life is a supportive partnership for holding your vision with you, for you. If you are not clearly defined in your life path vision, that too is one of the major processes of being fully supported in that knowing what holds your heart and keeps you on track.

So, when situations and circumstances come in to pull you aside, off track and questioning your journey, it is time to stop, to listen closely and take the time to go inside, from within, to revitalize your hearts desire.

Remember, the power of your words, what you say is what you get… so affirm your intention, hold your vision, keep mindful of your desires and allow THIS TOO SHALL PASS to be the grounding that will keep you going, on track, and when you want and need support you deserve, reach out and ask for help to keep you going.

Building Your Best Life… What you will receive is one-on-one coaching. I do have the experience of having taken this journey for over thirty years, and I can help you. I have my own personal coaching, connection and communication that helps you be the BEST you can be, and already are.

ask your questions and get the support you want and deserve.
Until next time,
Veronica

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..
