show and tell

We’re a quarter of the way through this glorious year, mate!

Remember your big dreams for 2015?

They are worth your attention and discipline!

 

For many of our goals, we need to assemble with groups of like-minded, focused, tenacious souls who simply recognize our greatness and cheer us on.

You and I, we can do that for each other… right here!

 

Here are a few of my beLoved goals for the year:

✘ Publish my book for sale on Amazon

✘ Submit articles to my favorite online magazines like Rebelle Society, The Phoenix Soul, Blackberry A Magazine

✘ Use my TRX once a week

✘ Do scorpion pose

✘ Get THE WANDERING PEBBLE up and filled with art

✘ Make a fitness/wellness video every month!

Expect to see a new VID here every month!

 

So please, join me in fulfilling your passions.

 

What do you want to see come from your vastness of possibility?

 

Tell me.

Then come back through and show me your realized goal!

Life isn’t short. For some, it’s long.

letter to mE

Girl, you have fallen’ into some big ole holes, and I know how much it has hurt you.

I know you can barely breathe down there in your pursuit of “all there is”- down there gasping to create a relationship that validates you, unraveling in a job-change you thought would define you (but is attacking your beliefs about humanity), in the arduous pursuit of sustainable health insurance.

all there is

But you will get another opportunity to choose soon. Really.

In about 5 months you won’t need to keep cranberry juice in the fridge for your vodka and you won’t need to workout twice a day to keep your butt from blowing up because of the chocolate chip cookie dough. 10 years younger me

 

Your angry prayers and creative visualization notebooks will move you to a safer ground.

Don’t stop doing that work!

One thing I learned from you is to state my desired outcome like I know for certain it will happen.

 

Especially when I have no idea how IT will happen, still say IT must.

With no alternative.

 

That worked for you.

Thanks for giving me that.

 

Here’s what I wish to give to you, my 10 year younger mE.  

Stamp these in your belly.

1. Stand with your intuition. When you feel you know, you are correct.  You do.

2. Don’t tell everyone all your detailed feelings.

Explain only when you have established trust.  Folks you can trust will hold your feelings sacred instead of using your life as something casual to talk about.

3. Journal often. Try audio when you’re scared to write.

4. Finish writing ThemKids. It’s really good.  

5. Stop fixing people. Oh God girl, I know it’s your nature, but please stop pushing the fix in your private life.  

It will exhaust you and deplete the enthusiasm you need for your beliefs.

Simply, offer advice if you’re asked, but don’t beg anyone to take it.

6. Respect every woman you see. They are precious. You have so much in common. You do.

7. Protect your spiritual center. Let it expand. It will make you magical.

Life isn’t short for everyone.  For some, it’s long.

Life is precious.
What always amazes me is that we get so many chances to be who we want to be.
Regret isn’t necessary.

You are not going to make a bad decision.

So every time you decide something, be as bold as brass.  It all fits somewhere.

Each year, you’ll see, this life gets more and more meaningful,

and you will learn that sometimes

breaking the conventions and “supposed tos”

is what will bring you the most happiness.

now me. michelle bernard

put your life IN MOTION

Recently, the promises of the Law of Attraction have started to get on my last nerve.

The LoA has become a die-hard STRATEGY taught to get folks to ride the fast train to the acquisition of their goals– to be able to attract new, SHINY, super-sized STUFF like cars, jobs, tight BODs, mates, six-figures…

Recently, I’ve heard tons of folks complaining they’re not seeing their fortunes delivered, all wondering what they’re doing wrong!

 

Nothing.  Except you must add the real work:

TRANSFORMATION of behavior.

BECOME the person you need to be to live the life you desire to live.

 

Way before I was ever introduced to this LoA tool to rev up luck, 

I used plain ole day-dreaming.  

And there was no TRY attached to it.

I just envisioned movies of myself doing my dream.

And more!

I behaved as if my dream was already REAL.

I was the seed, the bud, and the blossom.  

I was seeing, talking, and acting with absolute certainty that my dream was REAL.

 

I wasn’t TRYING to attract it.

I never TRIED to align with it.

I never TRIED anything.

I imagined and then studied what I need to DO

to become what I desired.

I BEHAVED and prepared for it to happen without fail,

and with faith enough to hurdle fear and suffocate the sound of crows.

To be extremely honest, I probably sounded and looked crazy to folks.  I remember people giving me that peculiar look, like “you poor child..”

Now, I believe it’s totally mad-crazy to hatch a nest of excuses why you can’t do the things your heart burns for, and it’s a travesty to imagine awakening 10 years from now in your skin soiled with regret.

Believe, then BEHAVE your way into the life you are worth living.

 

Whatever you are doing right now, shows what you really and truly have FAITH in.

Who are you

Get Back to School

I’m back!

 

Back from Greece.  mykonos, greece

 

Back from Turkey.  grand bazaar

 

Back from summer.

 

Back from creating and revising the my beLOvedBODy fitness programs.

 

Back to school, this life-school.

And me-feels bubbled up with curiosity and desire to learn and experience as much as an existence can.

 

So many of us, including the teachers who had the summer off and the mamas who get extra help with the kids from daytime summer camps, lose their weekly workout and self-care rituals during this time of year.

 

I’ve noticed that this BACK to SCHOOL time either promotes a big-time return to productive weekly habits or a regression away from taking care of personal needs and desires.

 

Let’s return to productive, healthy habits to fulfill our curious souls.  Let’s WAKE UP.

 

We CAN set life-affriming goals EVERY 8 WEEKS!

 

SET 3 PRODUCTIVE LIFE GOALS today.

Here are mine 

1  To expand my imagination, I’m gonna read 2 books per month.

read!

I’ve started THE ALMOST MOON by Alice Sebold of THE LOVELY BONES and DYING TO BE ME by Anita Moorjani this week!

This has been a frickn challenging goal in the past, especially during times when I’m working a lot.

I’m starting small with the 2-book goal.  By January, I hope to make it a 3-book-a-month thang.

 

2  Get stronger and overcome a fitness hurdle.

n-MUHAMMAD-ALI-large570

My goal is to do 2 sets of 5 chin ups two times  per week  AND  to master the HANDSTAND by JANUARY 2015.

 

 

3  CENTER my soul.

be in center

I plan to sit quietly or pray for 10 minutes EVERY DAY.  

I also plan to read my FAV spiritual text – The SCIENCE OF MIND by Ernest Holmes and listen to MICHAEL BERNARD BECKWITH  2 times per week.

 

Please join mE.

Make your goals meaningful.

Explore your curiosities and fears.

 

Make your goals ACHIEVABLE!  Let them be goals that you CAN accomplish given your real-life schedule,

even if it means shifting things around a bit.

goals every 8 weeks

Let’s do it together.

And let mE know

what are your  “big 3”  BACK to SCHOOL goals?
