Exercise Your Imagination

Imagination

In the book “Ask & It Is Given” Esther & Jerry Hicks explains how essential it is to use your imagination.

Imagination according to the dictionary means: the faculty or action of forming new ideas, or images or concepts of external objects not present to the senses.
if you think about it, that is the same definition of Faith. Faith is being sure of the things we hope for and knowing that something is real even if we do not see it (www.biblegateway.com).The way I see it, using our imagination is using our Faith.

According to the book instead of living in the present and worry about what you don’t want, they offer an alternative! Think about what you want! Think about how you want the situation to go. Once you think about it, notice the feeling you have while you are thinking about it. At you smiling? Are you feeling good about the thoughts that are crossing your mind? According to the book, if you think of a specific thought for 17 seconds, other thoughts of like mind will come to play. That 17 minutes will become longer and longer until you are exercising your Faith/Imagination faculty without even noticing it.

Try it! I find myself much happier as I use my Faith/Imagination Faculty to think and feel about how I want to see my life. The BEST part? I am manifesting some GREAT things in my life!

I LOVE Coaching

For the last 30 years of my life I have been struggling with my life as a working mother of 3, a “want to be” perfect wife, daughter, grandmother, house-maker, and keeping the house in perfect order. I have spent so much money on books, trying to find a way to manage it all, and, to “keep my house in order”, that the subject became an obsession.
At the beginning I blamed my children, then my husband, the grandchildren, but at the end, the blame (in my mind) fell on me, the I want to be “perfect wonder woman”.
With the help and guidance of my Life Coach, Coach Arthur, I realized that I can accomplish my dreams, if I organize my time, and let go of unnecessary “stuff” that have no place in our home.
Thank you Coach. Arthur, thank you for your wisdom and your help!
M. S., Secretary – Mother of 3 -Miami, Florida

“While working with Coach Arthur as my coach I have been thoroughly impressed with her ability to bring attention to what is most important. She really listened, gave me excellent ideas, and offered me her sage wisdom to take with me into my accomplishments.
Achieving my goals has been incredibly easy with her support. I mostly appreciate the clear and intelligent distinctions she has made that have allowed me to positively transform the way I’m doing something or how I’m viewing my life. Through her coaching I learned to give myself permission to succeed.
I’m in so much gratitude for what Coach Arthur brought forth in me at a time when I really needed the extra support. She is truly a brilliant star in my world.”
T. D., Life Coach, San Diego, CA

I must admit that in the beginning, I had no idea as to what a life coach was. I assumed that it would be like my uneventful meetings with the psychologist. I did not realize that I would see immediate results after the first session. Coach Arthur guides you step by step towards reaching your aim. Each week, Coach Arthur helped me to set small attainable goals that ultimately led to my success. Having Coach Arthur as my Life Coach is like having my own personal cheerleader rooting me on 24/7.
Y. F., Teacher, Mother – Miami, Florida

I tried Coach Arthur to release my debt and become liquid. Once I had my first session I felt inspired and ready to accomplish my goal. Coach Arthur was very firm in her follow up and held me accountable for my choices. I am still in the process of reaching my goal but I actually see a light at the end of the tunnel and my shopping habit has decreased quite a bit. I expect to be debt free in about a year and I have to thank Coach Arthur for leading me to realize my goal.
G. Z. P., Mother, Insurance Adjuster, Orlando, Florida

Some times you go thru life struggling with an “invisible enemy”, a problem, blaming family members for your “failures”, your spouse, your children. Then a Life Coach steps in, helps you make a few changes, then you realize that the so called “problem”, that has been hunting you for years, is inside of you, IS YOU !
I want to take this opportunity to thank my Life Coach, Ms. Miriam Carlota Arthur for guiding me, for being so patient, for telling me the “reality” in a way that I could see it, for not getting frustrated when I kept making the same mistake day after day, until the light came to me , and her words made me see!
Thank you!
M. S.,Secretary, Miami, Florida

I’m happy to share my experience. Just one session with Coach Arthur and I feel much more focused and relaxed. Because of this, I got a jump-start back into a more productive groove. It’s a good feeling to suddenly see, to become aware of, what the holdup has been. I snapped out of my funk, with Coach Arthur’s help, and I feel more hopeful, positive and happy. Thanks for the freebie, Coach Arthur! It was a pleasure to work with you! I highly recommend you as a life coach.
B., Chemist, Raleigh, North Carolina

My interaction with Coach Arthur was very lasting since she is very easy to talk to, friendly and eager to genuinely help others in need of professional and personal guidelines. I have not met a Life Coach like her before. I also continue to enjoy her correspondence as well as her web site inspirational and meaningful stories which most often relate to our personal lives.
W. J. M., Miami, Florida

Skeptical would have to be the word and the feeling I had when i reached out to Coach Arthur with questions and concerns on a new direction in my life. I had enough questions for myself and wasn’t sure if I had the self esteem to share my “fears with someone else. Coach Arthur got straight to the point and was so on target from Day one that it shocked me that I had so much information about “Me” in one day. I sat still for a moment and when I begin working the process I immediately felt some relief about my new direction in my life. During the remaining time with Coach Arthur I noticed plans that I had been holding on to for quite some time became tangible goals that I was completing or either I had placed them in my path to complete. I could see the forest.

Thoughts are things!

Thoughts are things!

I can’t say enough about the book “Ask and It Is Given” by Esther and Jerry Hicks!

I have read this book twice and the second time has literally opened a whole new world for and to me!

I have learned that if I am continuously mindful of how I am feeling within, I can literally stop myself from thinking thoughts that will serve no purpose in my life.
I learned that feeling my feelings is the easiest way to gauge what I am thinking. If I notice that I am not feeling at peace, calm in a state of well-being, all I have to do is think about what I am thinking about and change my thoughts immediately.

A very important question I have learned to ask myself is:
What is the purpose of having thoughts that will not enhance my life?
The answer to this question is one of the lessons this book has taught me.

An example:
I LOVE thinking of different scenarios where I tell someone how I feel about what I am experiencing or how I feel about what they did to me.
Well, I no longer do that, or should I say, I stop myself from doing that now!
I learned that this thinking process is a total waste of time!
After all, the Bible tells me that the words will come to me exactly when I need them.

Knowing that my feelings are a guiding tool/gauge to control my thoughts is the BEST lesson I have learned thus far in 2014.

If you are interested in knowing how to train your thoughts, by learning how your feelings can teach you the value of the thoughts you are having, email me for a FREE 20 minute Life Coaching session!

Feeling my feelings and guiding my thoughts,

Honor YourSelf!

Honor YourSelf!

Once God places you on a HIGHER LEVEL:

You cannot go back to what you knew before!
You cannot settle for old stuff that is now beneath you!
You cannot regress into an old, low level comfort zone!
The old manner of getting ahead has changed!
The dynamic of your future has been set in high gear!
Your paradigm has shifted upward and onward!
What you use to “rely” on, you can’t rely on that anymore!
The lower rungs on your ladder to success no longer exist!
Don’t cry when old methods don’t work anymore. DRY THOSE TEARS!

Stop looking back!
Stop running backwards!
And, don’t look down!
Come out from under that low place!
Change your behavior, attitude and confidence to match your NEW HIGHER LEVEL!

You are not only on a different level
YOU ARE ON A HIGHER LEVEL!

These were my encouraging WORDS for today, especially after receiving an email with “not so cool” news. When I realized that what I was shooting for was beneath me, I dried my tears.

I’m ABOVE only and not BENEATH! I’m the HEAD AND NOT THE TAIL! – Deuteronomy 28:13

And, the ALTITUDE up here is just fine and dandy!

Be Kind to Yourself!

Be Kind to Yourself!

If you are anything like me whenever you do something wrong you spend lots and lots and lots of time being less than kind to yourself.
If someone else does something that can be considered less than perfect, I seem to be able to say, “no worries!”

However, when I do it, I come out with the entire army for destruction!

Well, that was me before, I am in the process of being kinder and gentler to myself!
Why not?
After all, if GOD made me in HIS Image and Likeness who am I not be Proud, Grateful, and Humble for who GOD created me to be! There is ONLY one me, and I am the ONLY one that can do me effectively!

I challenge everyone reading this post!
Be nicer to yourself, LOVE yourself, but most importantly enjoy being with yourself.
You are the ONLY you you got!

Being kind to Myself,

Ways to avoid loosing it!

Ways to avoid loosing it!

When you know BETTER you do BETTER!
The MOST important job we have as parents does not come with directions. It is no secret that parenting is by far one of the most difficult jobs a parent will encounter. Luckily, nowadays there are may venus and outlets one can utilize to assist with child-rearing!
One of the strategies can be hiring a therapist, looking on line for helpful parenting websites, reading books about parenting or hiring someone like myself, a life coach for parents and teens.
To this end, I am always reading and I found a very interesting article in onetoughjob.org which shared some very interesting strategies for parents who experienced their children pushing their buttons. These are strategies I have recommended to my own clients and they are are worth sharing.

The same child who have brought you joy, love and proud moments can also make you feel as if you are going to loose it, when you experience these moments, there are strategies which will assist in making the situation better or assist in moving forward.
Some strategies to use when you are loosing it:

Forgive Yourself:
If in fact you have lost your temper with your child, please, forgive yourself! That is the first step to fix the problem. Once you have forgiven yourself, then, you can have a conversation with your child and apologize. Verbalize your feelings and admit that you did not handle the situation properly. Believe it or not, this will be a life lesson for your child.

You are not alone:
You are not the first parent who have lost your temper or have worked very hard not to loose your temper. Unfortunately we as a society do not speak about our weakness, but we all have them. You are not the first parent whose child has done something wrong or embarrassing. Do not judge yourself so harshly, Remember, your child is here to go through his/her own journey. Be gently with yourself!

View their actions as a way to communicate:
At times our children do not know how to express their emotions. At times, their actions appear to be bizarre to us, but if you open the lines of communication you will see there is a reason for the behavior. You just need to ask without judgment! Try your BEST to always find out where your child is coming from. Ask a lot of why questions, and be patient enough to wait for the answer.

Seek Support:
There are many parenting groups that will support you through tough times, hiring a Life Coach for parents like myself will also benefit your journey into better parenting. Having someone who can relieve you of your parenting duties while you take a deep breath or go out is also an excellent idea.

Understand your response:
Sometimes it is difficult to stop and count before reacting. Before spanking, yelling, calling your child names, Stop! Stop and think of what is going to happen next. Do a quick self assessment and take a deep breath. Once that angry moment has passed, you will be able to think and speak more clearly. Remember, your intention is NOT to hurt your child’s feelings!

Be on the same page with your Co-Parent:
A child must feel as routines are a way of life. Both parents must demonstrate a united front when it comes to parenting. Your child will see if there are any fragile areas in your parenting and will divide and conquer.

Be consistent:
This is not one of the strategies in the article, but I believe that being consistent will allow you to be a better parent. If you say it, then, you must do it! It is important that your child knows, understands, but most importantly believe that if you say it, you mean it!

Worrying is literally betting against Yourself!

Worrying is literally betting against Yourself!

Worrying is a total waste of emotion!
Regardless if you worry or not, the outcome will be whatever the outcome is going to be.
Your thoughts and your feelings have the power to re-direct your life.

If you are going to think, might as well think of thoughts in your favor. See yourself as GOD sees you, Whole, Healthy and Complete. When you begin a new endeavor, see yourself being successful with it and at it. LOVE Yourself enough to ONLY wish you well! When you have trials and tribulations, think grateful thoughts for the lessons that the situation will bestow upon you!!

Bet on yourself!
LOVE Yourself!
Consider thoughts a seed; plant seeds that will give you the fruit that you are longing for.

Happy Thoughts,
