Gratitudes for 2013 and Manifesting Intentions for 2014

Read to the bottom of this blog post for a list of questions to ask yourself about your accomplishments, successes and gratitudes for 2013 and your manifesting intentions for 2014.

Are you dreaming big enough?

Relationship Healing Mastermind2013 was not a year of huge accomplishments.  In 2012 I had written hundreds of articles, a novel and had received some special accolades for my accomplishments.  But in 2013, my work was more behind the scenes.  I attended Number One Book System and Author 101 University Events and I spoke at You Can Succeed and Superstar Summit on the same stage as Les Brown. At these and many other events I connected with accomplished and aspiring authors, editors, publishers, publicists, speakers, best-selling authors, marketers and celebrities.  It was a year for hunkering down and learning the ropes of the way the world works and the miracle of proper marketing.  And this is the year that I created my new web site, DrEricaGoodstone.com as a central hub to showcase and promote my speaking events, books and seminars.

Love in the Blizzard of Life – Day 30 – FLOW

Love in the Blizzard of Life - Creativity

I have discovered, for myself, that taking on a challenge gets my psychic and physical energy flowing and aligned. In other words, it puts me into the FLOW.  After 30 days of writing blog posts daily, I want to leave you with the most important aspect of any activity in your life.  If you are operating within this system, everything else seems to fall into place.  When you are in the FLOW, life is beautiful, every moment is an adventure to cherish, and every person is a symbol of God’s love.

Young children naturally function within the FLOW of their everyday activities.  When they get involved in an activity, they are totally present until something distracts them and then they become totally involved in a new activity.  When we are in the FLOW, time moves slowly and we are not impatient.  When we are in the FLOW of love, we are happy to allow the love to build, we enjoy the nuances of our shared experience and we express all those other wonderful qualities I have been talking about for 29 days.  When we are in relationship FLOW, each of us feels accepted, understood, appreciated, acknowledged, trusted and desired.  There is no craving or longing for something outside the relationship because we are able to express our full self and feel all of our feelings.

You may have a strong INCENTIVE, INTENTION,  PRESENT MOMENT awareness, DRIVE,  inner ARCHITECT,  PATIENCE, ability to SURRENDER,  COMMITMENT, TRUST, DISCERNMENT, PASSION, DESIRE,  CREATIVITY,  SENSUALITY, SEXUAL EXPRESSION, COMPASSION, and  COMMUNICATION. You PRACTICE relationships skills, you balance TOGETHERNESS and AUTONOMY,  your SENSITIVITY. UNDERSTANDING, RECEPTIVITY, FORGIVENESS, ACCEPTANCE, and EMPATHY may be flourishing.  You may know the PURPOSE for your relationship and your life MISSION. You may even have a sense of MASTERY of your relationships and your life.  If you have developed all of the above skills to an adequate (not perfect) level, then you will easily and often find yourself living in the FLOW, loving your life and loving your relationships.

Today’s question is:  How often and how easily do you find yourself living and loving in the FLOW?

  • Are you able to roll with the punches, take the path of least resistance, and enjoy drifting along within your relationships?
  • Can you set the course, ask for what you want, encourage others to express their needs and then creatively rise above the tide?
  • When you feel a surge of fear, discomfort, emotional uncertainty, disappointment even boredom, can you stay the course, ride the wave, and continue to more forward within your relationships?

Ask yourself NOW: Can I stay in the FLOW when I encounter the ups and downs and ins and outs of loving relationships in my life?

Being in the FLOW is what allows works of art to be created.  Being in the FLOW leads to marriage, business development, and success at all levels of human being.  Relationships are a work of art in progress.  The instrument through which we create this masterpiece is LOVE.   With interest, determination, study and practice we CAN develop all the necessary skills and emotional overtones to build exquisite relationships filled with love.  Are YOU ready to develop MASTERY and get into the FLOW?

Love in the Blizzard of Life – Day 28 – MISSION

Love in the Blizzard of Life - Creativity

Each of us has a MISSION, a goal and intention for our life, that provides for us a sense of value, well-being and importance.  When you know your life MISSION, then it becomes so easy to focus and create your heart’s desire in any area of your life.  All of your energy will be aligned toward achieving and attaining your desired goals.  Life seems to have no intrinsic meaning.  Each of us is born.  Each of us will die.  The meaning we give to our life is determined by us.  We decide upon that meaning.  We choose our own personal MISSION.

You may have a strong INCENTIVE, INTENTION,  PRESENT MOMENT awareness, DRIVE,  inner ARCHITECT,  PATIENCE, ability to SURRENDER,  COMMITMENT, TRUST, DISCERNMENT, PASSION, DESIRE,  CREATIVITY,  SENSUALITY, SEXUAL EXPRESSION, COMPASSION, and  COMMUNICATION. You PRACTICE relationships skills, you balance TOGETHERNESS and AUTONOMY,  your SENSITIVITY. UNDERSTANDING, RECEPTIVITY, FORGIVENESS, ACCEPTANCE, and EMPATHY may be flourishing.  You may know the PURPOSE for your relationship.  But does this relationship support your life MISSION and the legacy you want to leave for those who follow you?

Today’s question is:  Have you determined your own unique life MISSION and have you been living in accordance with what it will take to fulfill your MISSION?

  • Are your current activities and the people you spend time with supportive and aligned with your life MISSION?
  • Do you have an underlying desire to pursue something or someone completely different from your current direction?
  • Are your emotions calm and serene, balanced and at peace, because you KNOW you are following the path that stirs your passion and calls you to take action?

Ask yourself NOW: Have I discovered and am I living according to my own chosen life MISSION?

When the purpose for your business and personal relationships is aligned with your grander vision of your life’s MISSION, all the required tasks and sacrifices, education and stumbling blocks, emotional pain and intermittent struggle, will not deter you from seeking to reach your goals.  When you know your MISSION and are determined to leave your legacy, the universe seems to open its portals and success naturally pursues you.

Relationships are built upon the complexity and interactions among all the different possible qualities, both positive and negative, that we can bring.  Every quality is important, to some degree.  It is really the balance among all the different possibilities that can lead to joy and happiness or sadness and emotional devastation.

Love in the Blizzard of Life – Day 27 – PURPOSE

Love in the Blizzard of Life - Creativity

Do you remember the original PURPOSE for your current business and personal relationships?  Did you begin in a state of neediness, seeing some quality in another person that could get you over some difficulty or struggle?  Have you progressed and are now feeling different yet you are still involved in the same relationships?

Knowing your original PURPOSE and your current PURPOSE for each relationship can result in your having to make some pretty strong decisions.  There may be some relationships that at one time had served you well but currently seem to diminish your passion and drive.  If your PURPOSE is clear, you can easily determine whether you are just in an emotional slump or if this relationship no longer serves you.

Consider the PURPOSE for your relationship.

Today’s question is:  What was the original PURPOSE for your current business or personal relationship and is that original PURPOSE still valid and appropriate?

  • Does the original PURPOSE for your relationship keep you devoted, dedicated and persistently focused on building, growing and achieving success?
  • Do you have a single-minded reason, that your rational mind approves of, to continue your commitment to this relationship?
  • Can you focus on a principle, an idea, a goal or a specific target that keeps you motivated and striving toward  success in this business or personal relationship?

Ask yourself NOW: How strong and clear is my PURPOSE for creating, maintaining and improving my business and personal relationships?

When you are clear about your PURPOSE, your reason, and your unique “WHY” for pursuing, establishing and nurturing specific relationships in your life, you will easily be able to access all of those other valuable emotional qualities.  When you know your PURPOSE, your fear, resistance, worry and apprehension will take a back seat to your determination, drive and persistence. 

Relationships are built upon the complexity and interactions among all the different possible qualities, both positive and negative, that we can bring.  Every quality is important, to some degree.  It is really the balance among all the different possibilities that can lead to joy and happiness or sadness and emotional devastation.

Love in the Blizzard of Life – Day 9 – TRUST

Love in the Blizzard of Life

TRUST is a quality that develops and build over time in any relationship.  Without a basic sense of TRUST, we do not feel safe, secure and loved.  TRUST in the consistency of our own or our partner’s personality, behaviors and attitudes creates the foundation of a lasting relationship.

At this point you may have the following qualities in place: Your INCENTIVE and INTENTION; Your PRESENT MOMENT awareness and DRIVE; Your ARCHITECT Relationship Designer energy; Your ability to SURRENDER,  to have PATIENCE, and to make a lasting COMMITMENT.  At this point, your relationship seems to be on solid ground, able to withstand the ups and downs and difficulties of life.

Today’s question is:  Do you have a deep and abiding TRUST in your partner, your relationship and yourself, the trust that whatever happens will be for the highest good of all?

  • Am I convinced and do I expect that my partner and I are aligned and following similar paths?
  • Do I hope, believe and have faith that we are growing closer and more bonded every day?
  • Can I rely upon, depend upon and believe that my partner will do what is desired, promised and expected?

Ask yourself NOW:  Do I TRUST that my partner and I are each honoring, accepting and appreciating our own self and each other so that our relationship will continue to grow closer and stronger over time?

TRUST involves seeing, expecting and believing that each person is fulfilling their own part of the relationship needs.

Love in the Blizzard of Life – Day 3 – THE PRESENT MOMENT

Love in the Blizzard of Life

The foundation of love is built in the PRESENT MOMENT NOW.  Love exists right now, in this very moment and then again in this next moment.  Love does NOT happen in the past and it does NOT occur in the imagined future.   Loving relationships begin the moment YOU feel and acknowledge the love that is already within you and exists now within others.

At this point you KNOW that you DO have the following (If you have any doubts, click the links and read the previous posts):

You DO have the INCENTIVE to create a loving relationship because you feel motivated, you have a solid reason and you feel encouraged and hopeful.

You DO have the INTENTION to do what it takes to create a loving relationship because your relationship has special meaning for you, it serves a unique purpose, and you have a dream for your life that you believe this relationship can help you to attain.

Today I ask you to reflect upon the way you tend to think, feel, speak and behave in the PRESENT MOMENT.

The question to ask yourself now is:

What can I do NOW to help me feel my INCENTIVE and remember my INTENTION in the PRESENT MOMENT when relationship discords, frustrations, hurts and negative emotions occur?

  • Observe and notice yourself and others in the current moment.  Pay attention to the words spoken and unspoken, the tone of voice, the body language, the attitude and the overt behaviors.
  • Observe and notice how quickly a word, behavior or energetic change can affect both you and the other person.  Do not ignore even the most subtle changes, e.g., a tightening in your stomach, the other person looking away or folding the arms, a change in the tone of voice….
  • Observe and notice those split seconds or longer moments when you or the other person is no longer present, is here but is really there (in the past, with someone else, imagining the future).

Ask Yourself Now:  What can I do NOW to help me feel my INCENTIVE and remember my INTENTION in the  moment when relationship discords, frustrations, hurts and negative emotions occur?

Make a decision NOW to start paying attention to the nuances of the moment to moment interactions you have in each of your relationships.  At first this may feel a bit strange and even daunting to consider.  So don’t stress yourself out about it.  Just pay attention for a few minutes. An easy way to begin is to observe your interactions with someone who is not a close friend or lover, such as the check out person in the supermarket, a brief conversation with one of your neighbors, or the way you respond to a waiter who has not yet delivered your food or beverage.  The goal is to bring love into your PRESENT MOMENT, regardless of what is happening and to leave your past behind and your future where it belongs, in the future.

Allowing yourself to be in the PRESENT MOMENT can literally transform your life one person, one relationship at a time.

Love In The Blizzard of Life – Day 2 – INTENTION

Love in the Blizzard of Life

Relationships usually do not just magically grow and blossom. Even when they begin on a high note and are filled with passionate romance, over time the road may become rocky and negative feelings may occasionally surface. If you have the INCENTIVE and you recall this incentive for being in this relationship when the going gets tough, you are on your way to doing what needs to be done to continue having a fulfilling, lasting and successful relationship. You now are motivated, you have a good, solid reason, and you are encouraged about your ability and the other person’s receptivity to having a great relationship together.

But as the problems arise, which they inevitably do, your original incentive may not be enough. The struggles may seem too difficult, the hurdles too high, and the problems unsolvable. This is when your true, deep and abiding INTENTION shines through. Today I ask you to contemplate your INTENTION. Ask yourself now: “What Is My True Intention For This Relationship? How will I know if my intention is being fulfilled in this relationship?”

1. Your relationship has special meaning for you. You have been seeking a business partner for years and have finally found someone as eager as you with similar goals. You dated for awhile and found this person who has most of your desired qualities. You’ve known this person for a long time and know each other well. To you, this person is the most beautiful or the most intelligent, the most sensitive or the most kind…. of anyone you have known or loved.

2. Your relationship serves a unique purpose. You are finally ready to have children and this wonderful person wants to have children with you. You have certain business strengths and this person’s skills and personality assets complement yours. Your aging relative is wealthy and plans to leave you a large sum on money – or – this person has been kind and loving toward you and you are happy to show your love and provide caring now.

3. You have a plan, a goal, a dream for your life and this relationship can help you to fulfill that dream. You want to become a celebrity and this person is an agent for some superstars. You want to become a professional musician and this person is the best teacher available today. You want to live a lifestyle of comfort and ease and this person is financially very comfortable and shares generously with you.

Ask Yourself Now: DO I INTEND TO CREATE MAGNIFICENT, HEALING, PASSIONATE, JOYFUL AND LOVING RELATIONSHIPS IN 2013?

Check in with yourself. Is there part of you that really wants to create wonderful relationships and another part that says: “It’s too much work. There’s nobody out there worth making all that effort for. What happens if I lose interest…. Check out the intensity and power of your true intentions to do what it takes. Take a deep breath. Sit quietly for a moment. Let go of all your reasons that have stopped you before.

And now, ask yourself again: DO I REALLY INTEND TO CREATE MAGNIFICENT, HEALING, PASSIONATE, JOYFUL AND LOVING RELATIONSHIPS IN 2013?

There is power in INTENTION. Stay tuned for the next powerful word to help you build the solid foundation your relationships have been wanting and needing.

Gratitudes for 2012 and Manifesting Intentions for 2013

Love in the Blizzard of Life

Read to the bottom of this blog post for a list of questions to ask yourself about your accomplishments, successes and gratitudes for 2012 and your manifesting intentions for 2013.  I will begin by sharing my most powerful and self-affirming accomplishment of this year.

2012 has been an incredibly expansive, eye-opening, and growing year for me and for my online business.  I have made great changes, great strides and have widened the scope of my contacts, friendships and networking avenues. I have written hundreds of articles and blogs posts and actually was acknowledged by Ezinearticles.com as 1 of the top 20 showcased authors out of over 400,000 writers.  The response to some of my workshops has been underwhelming and overworking so I stopped, re-evaluated and changed direction.

Then – during the month of November, as part of the Nanowrimo.org challenge (National November Writers Month) – I committed to writing a novel (for the first time in my life) of at least 50,000 words.  By November 25th, I had written over 100,000 words and had actually created my complete novel: Love in the Blizzard of Life.  And, that’s when I discovered that the writing is the easy part.  Writing a book and all the details involved is truly a LABOR OF LOVE – whether you self-publish it and handle all the details yourself or if you outsource and pay others to handle each of the different aspects.

I spent the month of December re-reading every chapter at least twice, editing as I went along.  And the work was still not done.  On Saturday, December 22nd, when the music was blasting Christmas songs about the holiday spirit and everyone everywhere was planning warm and fuzzy family and friend events, on that day I was all alone with my computer for THIRTEEN HOURS STRAIGHT, taking breaks only for meals.  And, I am proud to say that on that day I uploaded the interior of my book into CreateSpace.com and finally, after 11 PM that night, I got a message saying “there are no errors found.”  But that was just the interior, the manuscript of the book.

On Sunday, December 23rd, I attended my morning Infinite Way meditation group and then proceeded to spend another 6 hours re-creating and uploading my cover images (front, back and spine).  On Monday, December 24th, I received a message that there was still an error in the interior and that had to be fixed before the book could be accepted.

Today, December 29th, I received the first actual paper copy of my book – and I must say the cover looks great.  However, the color of the print on the back was difficult to read.  So today, I made another revision – and – as soon as I had completed that, I realized: “Wait a minute.  There is room on the back cover for my logo.  So I need to wait until the latest revision is approved.  Then I can create another revision, add the logo, and voila.  The book is ready to go to Amazon.com.    The web page for my novel will soon be online with a link.  Please let me know if you would like to pre-order a signed copy.

WHAT ARE YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS, SUCCESSES AND GRATITUDES FOR 2012?  If you have not already done this simple exercise, please take the time to do so now.  I did this a few days ago.  It took me a few hours and the end result was amazing.  It gave me such clarity about where I have been , what I have done, and what are my next steps.  Give yourself the time that you would give to a prospective lead, client or customer.  Take the time to reflect upon your past year and anticipate with enthusiasm the future you are in the process of creating NOW.
