Building Your Best Life

From WITHIN your HEART, your VISION as your Inner Pathway

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.

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.

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.

Because I Believe in YOU..
