Deserving ~ I Am Deserving

  
“When I was little, I picked up a flower and put it in a vase. After a few days, it died. I asked my mom why and she said: “You can’t force a flower to thrive somewhere it doesn’t belong to. And now I have realized that people are like that too.” ॐ – Author Unknown – Retrieved from Sageword Facebook Page

In an effort to turn the course of my thoughts and release the heaviness of emotions I’ve been struggling with recently, I’m writing another therapeutic post to make some space for creativity again.

I’ve been feeling like I’ve been pushed to a fork in the road. I feel like life is calling me to make choices that will determine my future. I wasn’t really planning to do this now. I was hoping to be like everyone else I know and just coast along in life. I was hoping for once what I have would be all I would need. But, life doesn’t work for me that way. Maybe it doesn’t work that way for anyone? Maybe I’m just more open about it and more willing to change and grow.

Part of what brought me to this place is a feeling growing inside of me. A feeling growing inside of me that is saying I deserve more. I deserve more. I deserve to work to the full capacity of my intellect, talent and skills. I deserve to have satisfaction in my daily activities. I deserve to be in a relationship with a man who is capable of giving me all of him. I deserve to have a healthy body. I deserve to have peace in my life, my body and my mind. I deserve more.

You’ll notice that nowhere in that last paragraph did I speak about being rewarded for my efforts. That is because I don’t think that way. I truly give and help people because I enjoy it. I have no ulterior motives.

In recent weeks I’ve been helping someone at work during a transition time. I offered to do it because I knew he needed the help, he’s very appreciative for the help and I enjoyed doing it. I wanted him to see the level of support and service he should be getting. I wanted him to know he deserved more than he was accepting. That is why I helped him. I wanted to show him by example what he deserved. I don’t seek rewards for those efforts. That’s not what I’m about. I don’t expect anything in return from him other than “thank you Linda” which he has said numerous times👍😄

But, in helping him see he deserved more, I saw I deserved more. We are like mirrors to each other. We show each other what we need to see, what’s holding us back, who we can be and what the possibilities are for ourselves. Through him I’m opening myself up to wanting more. I’m diving further down into myself and using our connection to source profound growth and personal evolution. Some connections are deeply spiritual and have the capacity to spark movement in stagnation.

At this time of reflection in my life, I’m also practicing great caution. I’m looking before I leap. I’m considering alternatives. I’m taking my time. There’s no rush. Things may work out for me organically without a lot of effort from me. But, I must be willing now open my eyes to what else is available to me.

A friend gave me some advice the other day. She said, “Linda, I’m going to tell you what I tell my kids. Open your eyes and look. You’ll either find you like what you have and choose to stay where you are or you will find something that’s better for you, something you like better. Look. You’ll know if it’s time to leap. Trust your intuition.” I suppose that’s what I’m doing. I’m looking.

I am looking for more because I now know I deserve more. How do you know you deserve more? It’s when you can no longer accept less…

NOTE
The Music is “Driving” By Will Ackerman
This is absolutely favorite piece of music. I close my eyes and tears well up from from the emotions in the chords. The year after my Sister died I was in a pretty deep depression. The truth is I had an emotional/physical/spiritual breakdown. I didn’t know how to live without her. In some ways, I still don’t. In that challenging part of my life, I relied on music to help me get through the long nights. I found this song on the “Conversations With God” CD. I wore the CD out twice. This song especially brings me great peace. It’s almost like it was telling me it was ok to be sad and cry. And, it’s reassuring me that I am being guided and protected by Angels.

An Open Letter To Satan

2015/01/img_1401.jpg

Dear Satan:
I’m being tested. I now know that. You’ve been testing me. In the last couple of months, You’ve seen to it that every decision I made for myself in the four years was put in jeopardy. You’ve offered me opportunities to go back to who I was in the past. You tried to break me and make me small again.

You made me sad during the Holidays and made me I want a drink. You made me want my old life. I stood strong and made it through without giving in. Fuck you Satan👍

You tried to break my spirit by bringing pain and illness into my body the last two months. Straight up, you almost won on this one. You almost beat the shit out of me on this one. On the brink of despair I prayed to God for strength. The answer came. I remember the things that nourished my mind, body and spirit and make me feel good. I leveled out my emotions with Yoga. I helped my body find balance with QiGong. I slowed my mind down with Meditation. I had a good cry. I spoke honestly with those I love and reached out to people when I was freaking out. I listened to my instincts and sought better medical care out if the area. I took care of myself. While I am still navigating the health issue that started two months ago, I’m stronger and in a better frame of mind. John Wayne said, “Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway.” Guess what Lucifer? I saddled up! Fuck you👍

You brought a former lover back into my life not as temptation of the flesh but as an opportunistic bastard trying to reintroduce an unhealthy relationship I left behind. I took pause and thought about the past. Asked myself if it would be good for me to revisit this relationship. The answer was clear to me. No, no I do not want to go back to the past. I don’t have those feelings for him anymore. He knows that. I wished him well and left what we had in the past. Fuck you Prince Of Darkness. I moved on👍

Satan, Lucifer, Prince of Darkness, this is the face of a woman who will rise up and defeat you every time. Look at the Cross in my Cleavage. That’s right. He will help me defeat you every time. But go ahead! Take your best shot! Go head! Test me👍 I will fight you. I fight for the life I chose four years ago. I will fight for my emotional well being. I will fight for a healthy relationship with the good man I now see in my life. While things are still complicated, he is good for me. Even if he is to be Just a friend, he’s shown me by example what I hope to have in my life. I will fight for that and him – if I need to! Fuck you Satan👍You lose!

But, remember my face. Remember my name. Because I am one strong confident woman who doesn’t give a fuck what people think of me; I will straight up beat your ass ever time. Every.Single.Time👍😄👏

Namaste,
Linda🌹🙏

Ocean Front Dream Home

I am writing this post today to remind myself dreams do come true and I simply must stop putting limits on them.

I grew up “in the neighborhood” in Philly in a family of “city people.” They prefer the concrete to sand. My best friend’s family would bring me on vacation to the Jersey Shore with them every year. And, that’s when I first noticed I felt better with sand between my toes and that I could breathe easier when I could hear and see the ocean.

Last summer I set an intention that I wanted to live in a condo by the beach. On January 16th, I moved into a condo in Atlantic City on the 7th floor of a high-rise. I have a balcony and an ocean view. Yes, the Intention I set for myself last summer came true. 👍👏 I can see the ocean every day.

But it is time for me to raise the stakes in my dreams and dream bigger & bolder😉 My ocean front dream home is still out there. Actually, I think I’ve been watching it be built for the last six months from the windows of my condo👍

The model for a luxury townhouse is being built near me. Below are a few pictures of it. In case you can’t read the banner, some of the amenities include:
🔸ocean views
🔸5 floors, 4 bedrooms & 4 baths
🔸an elevator
🔸master bedroom is one whole floor
🔸fire places & wet bar
🔸two car garage

As I was walking home today, I talked to the sales person. The price is……
$1,590,000!. That’s a little out of my price range. Lol😜

Today I am practicing the Law of a Attraction & I am putting this home on my list for when I sell my first New York Times Best Seller or when I hit the lottery👍🙏

Today I am happy and grateful now that I live in my ocean front dream home✌️😉❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏👏👏👏👏👏

2013 Intentions – Metamorphosis Daily Prompt

Carlo_Maria_Mariani_-_Tutt'Art@_(10)

The Daily Post’s challenge today was Metamorphosis. I use the power of Intentions to change my life. I’ve blossomed by using the power of Intentions. Metamorphosis occurred in my life by choosing my thoughts and actions carefully. So, I am using this post to Monday Morning Quarterback 2013’s intentions and set new 2014 Intentions for my next year’s Metamorphosis. 🙂

Last year on January 2, 2013 I posted a few of my board Life Intentions for the year. I’ve never been one to make New Year’s Resolutions. They seem cliché to me. But, I do believe in using Intentions to change/mold and direct my life. I am a planner; setting goals and Intentions makes sense to me. I believe if you set a goal and make a plan, you can achieve whatever you set your mind to.

Below is the list of Intentions I posted last year. Under each Intention is my “Monday Morning Quarterback” review of how it actually worked out as the year rolled by and a new Intention for 2014.

2013 Physical Health Intention
I will continue to focus on improving my health in all aspects so I can live a full active life. I will continue to make choices that promote health and wellness in my life. This includes continued commitment to fitness with regular exercise five to seven days per week. While I am in the average weight range for my height, I would like to lose an additional 5 to 10 pounds. Since I came this far and lost 80lbs I may as well lose another 5 to 10lbs and get back to my college weight  I will remain committed to being alcohol free. I know if I drink alcohol I will become sick again. I won’t let that happen. I welcome physical health into my life in 2013.

As I started 2013, I was still working on healing my Liver and Stomach which were both damaged by undiagnosed Celiac Disease & Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease with Steatohepatitis. I had one year of being alcohol free under my belt. I was Gluten Free for six months and I was easily maintaining the weight loss as food made me sick so I didn’t eat very much. 

Over the course of the year, my Liver healed completed but my stomach was just getting worse.  I just couldn’t figure it out. I started the summer with six consecutive weeks of a Migraine Headache followed by a month long respiratory infection which was caused by poor air quality and exposure to second-hand smoke. But, I later found out an undiagnosed food allergy to the Flaxseed I was using as a non-gluten Fiber source was the source of most of problems.  Since eliminating Flaxseed my stomach has improved dramatically. It’s improve so much so that I actually gained weight.  The Doctor told me that would happen when my stomach started absorbing nutrition again. Actually he told me it was a welcomed sign. It meant my stomach was working normally again and I was healthy 🙂

2014 Health Intention

I will remain Gluten Free and Alcohol Free.  although I do miss having a glass of wine, I can’t go through all the work it took to heal my Liver again.  I just can’t do it again. The Liver Specialist told me the Liver disease will come out of remission and will be even worse and may even kill me if I gain too much weight or drink alcohol again. So, I’ve accepted that alcohol is my Kryptonite.  Moving on…Now that my stomach is healed and I no longer have multiple nutritional deficiencies from lack of absorption I have to work on finding the right balance food and calories for my health body.  I would like to take off the 10lbs I put back on.  I will use use Yoga and Power Walking as my primary exercises to nourish my body and help me maintain a healthy weight. Also, if you read my blog regularly, you may have noticed I removed the Celiac Disease Infographic.  I did this intentionally. I now believe when you identify yourself with an illness, you open the door to more illness.  In other words,

I am happy and grateful now that I am healthy and I feel good.  I do not identify myself with any illness or disease.

2013 Emotional and Mental Health Intention
I will continue to make strong health choices for myself that focus on taking care of my emotional and mental health. I will make sure to look for ways to manage stress and anxiety. I will continue speak my peace. I will not internalize. I will not bottle everything up inside. I will allow people to help me. I will allow those who love me to take care of me when I need support. I will seek help when I need it. I will say what I need to say. I welcome emotional and mental health into my life in 2013.

I not only set this as an Intention but it became my Manta, my lifestyle.  The greatest improvements in my life occured because I made a commitment to myself to live authethnically. Whatever changes I had to make to live this way, I had to make them. PERIOD.  Not excuses… I’ve always been Bohemian Free Spirited by nature.  I stopped  suppressing that part of me. I stopped comforming with what friends thought I should be. Yes, I lost friends by doing it.  Guess what?  Oh well.  See ya, bye bye. I am over that.  I have my strength back. I am back to being the person I was before I lost myself in a crowd.  I speak my truth. I write my truth. I live my truth.  Yoga has been my mirror to my soul. Through my practice I learned a lot about myself and capabilities.  I’ve laughed and cried on the mat. But, mostly I found peace that I’ve never known within by Meditating. .   I use Mantras every day. Two Mantas I say everyday at some point are “Om Gum Ganapataye Nahama” to remove all obstacle and “Om Arakya Nahama” for freedom from affliction.  I also started to not only embrace but also cultivate my highly intuitive nature and let the messages come through however they need to come through. A good friend of mine is Psychic. She told me recently that my Aura is just beautiful and magnetic.  That made me very happy.

2014 Emotional & Mental Health Intention

I will continue to walk my own path. I will remain authentic in everything I do. I will be genuine  and open.  I will continue to embrace my highly intuitive nature.   I will continue to use Yoga, Mantras, Meditation and prayer to facilitate my spiritual journey. I am happy and grateful now that I am living life as my authentic self.

2013 Financial Health Intention
I will focus my energies to manage money better. It’s been difficult to manage money because of the large medical expenses I’ve had in the last two years. Even with decent insurance I’ve racked up some medical bills for multiple hospital visits. But, I am hoping 2013 will be a year of improvement in my health which will also mean an improvement in discretionary dollars to use for travel or savings. I welcome wealth and abundance into my life in 2013.

This is another area of great improvement for me.  I really focused my energies on smart money managment. My habits helped this. I am not a spender. I am a minimalist. I don’t buy what I don’t need. I only buy things on sale and I hate accumulating stuff.  So, I am not a shopper.  I also don’t drink or smoke. So, that saves me money. And, I don’t have any children. That definitely saves me money. Lastly, I don’t enjoy going away for long periods of time or taking big expensive long vacations.  I just don’t enjoy it.  I live at the beach, I go on Yoga Retreats, I go away to NYC and Philly regularly.  I don’t need much more.  Not saying I won’t travel but it’s not at the top of the list.  By living at the beach and seeing the ocean every day I am vacationing every day. In 2013 I got smart about money and by the end of 2013 it reaped its rewards. 

2014 Financial Health Intention

I am a money magnet. I attracted abundance.  Money comes to easily and effortlessly.  Everything I need want and desire appears before me effortlessly at just the right time.  I have excellent money managment skills 🙂

2013 Spiritual Health Intention
It is vitally important to me to maintain my spiritual well-being. I am committed to nurturing my connection to source strength which only comes from which by practicing Yoga, Meditating, praying, practicing Reiki, offer compassing and empathy to others, but protecting my Karma and the Karma of others. I will live my Mantra of Love, Peace and Happiness. I will remember that change starts with me. I will allow myself to feel unbridled optimism and passion for my life. I will have the courage to do the hard things in life for the right reasons. I will not give up or give in. I will allow the fire in my belly to burn brightly for all to see. I had been using the Law Of Attraction principles for a few years but I reall saw it work and manifest some great stuff in my life in 2013. I also use “thought correction” a lot. If I have a negative thought, immediate change it to something positive. I released all “Victim” mentalities. I am a creator in my life. Life doesn’t just happen to me. I am a creator of my destiny.

This Intention is somewhat related to the Emotional and Mental Health Intention.  By the end of 2013 I saw the return of the fire in my belly. Those who have known me have always known there is fire in my belly. One of my former boyfriends used to call me his “ball of fire”.  But, health issues and an unpleasant breakup caused some anxiety issues for me. You can’t be a ball of fire while being anxious or holding on the past at the same time.  While my heart healed from the unpleasant breakup and that is far in my past it did leave me with some confidence issues and I was still carrying anxiety from the health issues. I lost my confidence. There is no other way to say it.   In 2013 I started challenging myself again on all levels. The comfort zone was unbelievably uncomfortable.  I decided I was not going to let fear or anxiety win. Slowly I felt a rekindling in my soul. By the end of 2013 the FIRE is back in my belly. And, this time around, I know how to keep it burning all by myself.  I am very proud to have healed my mind, body and spirit all on my own, idenpendently, self-sufficiently, authentically, magically on my own.  And, not only working a full time job at the same time but also challenging myself in the workplace as well.  YAY Linda!!!

2014 Spiritual Health Intention

I am happy and grateful now that I live a life of passion. I will keep the fire in my belly burning by kindling it with growth.  I will continue to challenge myself, nuture myself and celebrate my victories.


2013 Relationship Health Intentions
I plan to surround myself with like-minded individuals and with people who are good influences for me. We don’t have to agree on everything. I don’t have to have all the same habits or make the same lifestyle choices. But, we need to hold the same values. I like to learn from people. Teach me something. Mold me, inspire me, encourage me and shape my world.  I will show my love and affection openly for those I love. I will make sure those I love know how I feel. I will continue to believe in LOVE.

In 2013  I started surrounding myself with people who inspired me, encouraged me, challenged me and think like me. I realized I was attracted to people who are positive, driven and motivated. I started observing people who seemed to me to be doing it right. I started emulating their habits and learning from a distance.  2o13 also saw a rekindling of sensual spirtual through a positive mutual attraction.  Nothing makes me happier than when a man inpsires me to write Erotica.  I like having a muse.  😉 We will see what will happen with that. But, I will say it sure has been a lot of fun having a little secret flirtation with someone.

The most important relationship of my life is the one I have with myself.  2013 I began to love myself on all levels. I accepted myself on all levels. I allowed myself to receive – to receive all the goodness I deserved. 

2014 Relationship Health Intention

I will continue to surround myself with good influences who challenge me and encourage my growth. I am good to know. I will maintain an open heart and mind. I am attracted to people who are good for me. I am attracted to people with like energy. I attract health relationships.

BEACH LOVER’S DREAM ANNOUNCEMENT

My final note on this post is an official annoucement that one of my dreams is actually coming true soon.  I grew up in Philly and vacationed at the Jersey Shore for years. I spent the better part of 10 summers sharing group houses in Sea Isle City with friends. In 1994 I moved to Ocean City and lived there for 13 years. I moved to the mainland for a few years. 

As of January 16th I will be living back at the beach.  It was always my dream to buy a Condo with a Ocean view. I didn’t want a big home as I don’t want all the work that comes with owning a big home. I just wanted a condo. Two years ago I started walking four miles a night on the Ventnor/Atlantic City Boardwalks. By the end of last summer I decided that was where I wanted to live.  In the fall of 2013 I started talking realtors that worked in the area.  I was looking at condos in high rises in Chelsea Heights and  Lower Chelsea.  As I never lived in a high rise before, I decided to rent a condo in a high rise with an ocean view for one year instead of buying right away. 

 I started saying my beach lover’s dream Intention “I am happy and grateful now that I live in a condo by the beach” in August. I move into my condo with the ocean view on 1/16/14.  What a way to start the new year.

In 2013 I learned the power of my thoughts and I learned how to harass my personal power to actualize my dreams.

Jump
Take a deep breath
And jump
No time for fear
No time

Your plans are solid
Believe in the best
For your self
Have confidence
In your ability
To make strong
Healthy choices
For yourself
And
Just Jump
Out of the comfort zone
Into a new life
Full of possibilities
And excitement
Jump
Into your life
Free fall
Into exhilaration
Feel alive
Once again
Feel amazingly alive

The Heart’s Intuitive Intelligence (Heart Math)

heartmath1

The Heart’s impact on our life is far greater than just pumping blood and giving us life. There is actually a very strong connection between the heart and the mind.  By learning how to listen to your Heart’s intuitive wisdom we  can harness the power of our hearts to neutralize stress and empower our minds.

In a nutshell, the Heart Math Quick Coherency technique is : 

When a negative thought enters your mind or if you are stressed, focus your energy on the area around your heart. Think of a happy joyful memory or thought, take five deep breaths into your heart. Feel your spirits become uplifted as you think of something that makes you happy and gives you joy. After the five breadths, ask your heart a question. Ask your heart for its wisdom or direction.

I just learned this technique over Thanksgiving weekend so I am still working on it. But, I’ve already noticed some success in reducing anxiety and hearing my heart’s true wisdom.

Here’s the link to website and below is a seven minute video about the practice.

Feel Your Energy

image

Have you ever felt energy between your hands? Have you touched your Prana and physically felt your lifeforce?

I been working on Energy Attunenents lately with Yogi Shanti Desai. I now can feel the energy passing between my hands. When I give a Reiki session, my hands get super hot from the energy passing through me. It feels amazing to actually feel the energy between your hands. I’ve also been working on feeling and recognizing the energy of those around me. Allowing the good in and blocking the negative out.

I met Yogi Desai over ten years ago and recently started studying with him again. I am truly learning how to harness my spiritual energy so I can live my best life. If you would like to read more about Yogi Desai, please visit his website.
http://www.yogishantidesai.com

Experience Energy for yourself. Follow the below simple directions from Yogi Shanti Desai’s book, “Wisdom For Living.”

Sit comfortably with your eyes closed. Interlock your fingers and stretch arms upward feeling the stretch in the back.

Release the hands and observe the gravity bringing the arms down while you remain witness. Do not try to resist or force your arms down.

When the arms come down, feel the energy build up in the palms. When the arms are shoulder height, face your palms towards each other and move them slowly together.

Feel the attraction of the palms towards each other.

Surrender and allow the energy to take over the movements.

When the palms touch each other, rub them and apply palming to face, forehead, head, neck and ears.(p.189-190)

I Open My Hand And Let Go – Poetry

I Opened My Hand And Let Go
By: Linda A. Long
In opening
My hand
I let go
Of everything
I tried
To hold on to
Too tightly
Reminding myself
Where
I was
What
I overcame
Who
I am now
Changed
Forever
By the wave
That swept
Through my life
Innocently
It started
As a ripple
As one
Decision
Lead to another
And pulled
Me down
To the very
Bottom
Of my soul
To find
Authenticity
For the first time
Traveling down this
Rocky road
To peace
“Stop”
My mind
Shouted
“Go back”
My heart pounded
“This is too hard”
My body wept
“I can’t”
A small little voice
Deep within
Proclaimed
“I must”
Asserted
My soul
Not knowing
Exactly what
I was choosing
Only knowing
Life was forcing
Me to start over
I can’t remember
Consciously
Making the choice
I don’t remember
Saying
“Yes”
I can’t reflect
On the exact
Moment
It happened
It happened
Every day
With every
Choice
Letting go
One day
Holding on
The next
Having faith
Meaningful things
In my life
Will remain
Trusting what is
Rightfully mine
Will return
I opened
My hand
And let go
Finally
I see
The very best
Of me
For the
First time
I accept
I am powerful
Confidently
I stand
With tears
In my eyes
Because I
Finally
Set myself
Free
In knowing myself
I let go
By Trusting
Myself more
Than listening
To the advice
Of others
I finally found
My peace
Because
I let go
Of who
I was
And who
They wanted
Me to be
I timidly
Courageously
Started walking
My road
To peace
Through
The valley of
Of self-love
And
To the mountaintop
Of self-acceptance
I found
Happiness
Within
No longer
Needing
Validation or approval
From others
I pinned my
Happiness
To the beat of
My very own
Heart
Simply
Because
I opened
My hand
And let go

I wrote this poem earlier this year. I’ve been thinking about it lately. I’ve been reminding myself to keep my hand open so I don’t hold on too tight; reminding myself that it is only by having open hands can I receive goodness and let love flow through me to others. The open hand is also an open heart. It symbolizes that I am open to receiving; I am open to all things that are good for me.

Are your hands open and ready receive all the goods things you deserve? If not, what can you let go so your hands are open and ready to grab hold of something good when it comes your way?

Remember this basic Law Of Attraction principle.

Ask.Believe.Receive.
Ask the Universe for what you desire. Believe you deserve what you desire. Be ready to Receive what you desire.
Ask.Believe.Receive.
