Listening To Positive Voices

Today’s message: Listening To Positive Voices
****
Last week I created a blog post called Looping Negative Thoughts, it was a blog post about being aware of negative actions like blaming or shaming others and allowing negative thoughts to play like a movie reel loop over and over in the space of our mind. The blog post content stated when this behavior goes unchecked it creates a perfect breeding ground to spiral down into more negativity. You see, our thoughts, or voices in our head are powerful. They are like radio waves sent out to the Universe. If we project out negativity, the Universe replies to our request of negativity by sending more negativity our way.
    It was just three days later after writing that post that I experienced a wonderful synchronicity while sitting at a stoplight in Anoka, MN. As I waited for the light to turn green I felt compelled to look at the car next to me, and there on the side panel of a girl’s car was a fabulously positive bumper sticker with a4 out of 5 voices Friedenfeld simple, inspiring and funny message. It said, “4 out of 5 voices in my head say go for it.” I laughed out loud and said to my Angels, “Thank you! That’s awesome!” This is how the wonderful Universe works. You see, I sent out a positive message which originated in my mind about breaking negative thought patterns. And, the Universe responded by lining everything up behind the scenes so at that exact moment in time I would be at a stoplight, caste my gaze at the car next to me, see the bumper sticker before the light turned green so I could receive a positive message that I was on the right track with the information I was dispensing to others in my blog post a few days before. Phew! In simple terms, I sent out a positive message and I got a positive message right back to me!
Here are two simple simon truth tips for listening to positive thoughts:  
  • Allow only positive thoughts to travel through the space of your mind. Discount and command any negative thought away the moment you notice its entrance by saying, “Be gone!” I allow only positive thoughts here.
  • Allow your heart to guide and lead you, not the mind. It is your sacred heart that holds ancient wisdom, truth, and positivity. It is the truth of the heart that flows positive thoughts and images up into your mind. It is the ego that allows in negativity and fear.

Follow these truths and you begin to experience immediate and positive results.

As mentioned in my book, The Book of Simple Human Truths, we must remain locked in our hearts in order to see all the wonderful miracles that are presented before us.

Experiencing Mini Miracles

Believe With Me, Day Seventy-Seven… Spreading Love and Light Across the Earth, and being on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about kindness too!

Today’s message: Experiencing Mini-Miracles
****
A couple of days ago I had one of those days. Everything felt out of alignment and boy did I know it andAngel Statue Cavalry Cemetery St Peter Friedenfeld feel it. It was the day after the final process of moving from one house to the other that I allowed the mounting work ahead to knock me off center and take me away from my joy. My joy was replaced with the feeling of being completely overwhelmed. I have found for many souls, any time a major move occurs it also creates the environment to release many things that which does not serve the soul any longer. This was true for me and my family too. During this move old patterns, things that didn’t serve our family and life changing events were being brought to the surface and converging. When this occurs, if we don’t remain conscious and centered in our hearts we travel away from the heart and allow ourselves to move with lightning speed into our heads. This can create a downward spiral into negativity.  It is vital at this time to take note and make immediate adjustments to spiral back up into positivity. You will know you have traveled from your heart because your body as a gift gives you warning signals. Here are some examples of what you may experience:
  • Feeling anxious and wiry
  • Frustration
  • Angry
  • Sad
  • Pressure in your ears
  • Heart racing
  • Looping negative thoughts
Your heart is where peace and joy are anchored and I could feel both of them slipping away as the dayAngel at Cavalry Cemetery St Peter Friedenfeld progressed. So a few days later, after making a major impact on getting the house put together I got in my car. “I asked my Angels, which direction should I go?” I heard in my head, “south.” As I sat in my garage I then scanned the map on my iPhone. My eyes immediately landed on the town of St. Peter 60 miles south of Minneapolis. I pulled out of the garage, turned off the radio and drove in silence. With each mile of highway behind me I could feel my energy, joy, and peace returning to me.
    The moment I arrived in St. Peter I asked my Angels once again for guidance and drove up a quiet street which led me to a beautiful cemetery on a hill. I got out of my car and walked through the cemetery. Each time I walk through a cemetery I ask my Angels to send down sparkling love and light from the heavens to send unconditional love to that sacred location. With each footstep I began to feel a little lighter and brighter. I could feel the light I had dimmed within me by traveling away from my heart begin to burn brighter and brighter.
     In the distance I saw the most beautiful Angel statue standing watch over the grave of a beloved. I satAngel Shadow Friedenfeld beneath this enormous Angel and snapped a picture of her looking down at me. I felt myself lock back into my heart at that moment. “I’m back.” I said. And as I looked on the ground before me I saw a miracle that I had not seen until I returned to my heart. It was the exact perfect time of the day for the sun to cast a shadow of the Angel above me to appear on the ground before me. If I had arrived at this location earlier or later in the day I would not have experienced this mini-miracle. A mini-miracle is a gift from the heavens to inspire you and let you know you are never left to wander alone.  As mentioned in my book, The Book of Simple Human Truths, we must remain locked in our hearts in order to see all the wonderful miracles that are presented before us.

Many of life’s wonderful miracles reside in stillness and silence rather than motion and noise.

Looping Negative Thoughts

Believe With Me, Day Sixty-Eight… Spreading Love and Light Across the Earth, and being on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about kindness too!

****
Today’s message: Looping Negative Thoughts
****
Have you ever allowed something negative to take you off track or out of alignment, and away from your joyful state? Today I want to talk about staying on track and preventing looping thoughts. StayingRailroad Tracks Ties Friedenfeld in alignment on or track and remaining in a state of joy is one of the main reasons we are here on this planet. As I speak of in my book, The Book of Simple Human Truths, we know when we have manifested and reached a place of joy, because whatever it is we are doing at that moment, our hearts are singing. We are completely present. We are enjoying ourselves. This state of being means we are in alignment or in a positive vibration location. Alignment means we are on the right track, and a vibration location is an energetic place.

     So for example:  if we are traveling in a train and the tracks are out of alignment, the train will jump the tracks creating a derailment and a boxcar pileup. The same applies to souls. If we are out of alignment with peace and joy, we may embrace the negative, placing us in a negative vibration location. Thus, we may veer off track—our spiritual path—and into a metaphorical ditch. We then can become stuck in this new negative place in our minds plagued with looping thoughts.  Looping thoughts are negative thoughts or fabricated stories we create by filling in the gaps with information that is untrue. If we allow our minds to be in control these thoughts go unchecked and thus begin to play unconsciously in a negative looping pattern in our mind. If this negative pattern continues thoughts can then manifest into actions. We may think everyone is against us. We may begin to create a path of pain in our lives and the lives of others by engaging in drama, blaming others, constantly complaining, and being downright cruel to all souls who cross our path.

Conversely, if the train tracks we are traveling are in alignment, we continue to move ahead straight ahead remaining in a positive vibration location of peace and joy. This state allows all the wonderful things the Universe has to offer us to flow right in.

How to recognize when we are out of alignment with truth and love:

  • Any time we are complaining or blaming
  • Pointing the finger at other souls for their behavior instead of finding ways to improve our own
  • Judging the spiritual path of others
  • Feeling anxious, wiry, and a feeling of shifting away from a joyful state of being
  • Speaking cruel words about yourself or another soul

Simple Simon Returning To Joy Tip:

Get really good at asking yourself this question, “At this moment is my heart singing?” If not, start asking yourself questions to find out why and then, simply switch to another thought or action immediately that will help you get back on track to feeling joyful. Even if it means you must leave a family or work event, or even dinner with friends to return to joy.

Choosing To Walk In The Light

Believe With Me, Day Sixty-Seven… Spreading Love and Light Across the Earth, and being on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about kindness too!

****
Today’s message: Choosing To Walk In The Light
****
It was back in 1997 Ellen DeGeneres announced she was gay in Time magazine. At the time, she was the star of her own successful TV show Ellen. Ellen says,”When I decided to have my character on the show come out, I knew I  I did it for my own truth.” This was her way of staying strong within her core integrity, and doing what was right for her soul. It was a statement to the world of the immense power, inner strength, and the light within her. Ellen is a Guardian of Light and a Guardian stands up for the truth.Candle flame light Friedenfeld
     A record 42 million people tuned in as Ellen DeGeneres sat down with Oprah Winfrey and spoke her truth about coming out publicly. What Ellen experienced after speaking the truth was a campaign of pain or what I call “adult bullying.” We’ve all experienced it and it hurts our heart. Its sole purpose is to inflict pain, fear, negativity, spread untruths, and create an atmosphere of “us against them.” After the program aired religious groups protested her show, Conservative Reverend Jerry Falwell proclaimed her “Ellen DeGenerate,” shortly thereafter, ABC under pressure cancelled Ellen in 1998.

     When a soul decides to walk in the light of love and truth and bring forth their Lightworker energy they begin to shine the light and illuminate “societal shoulds” — which are untruths that a grouping of souls, over time, have come to believe is the truth, yet is not the truth. Lightworkers also hold other souls responsible for untruths, dishonorable, and cruel behavior. Many times holding a soul accountable for untruthful or cruel behavior will bubble up immense fear in others. The reason for this is simple. As featured in my book, The Book of Simple Human Truths, untruths that have been allowed to go unchecked for a very long time grow in negativity, and when they are brought out into the light it demands one of two options: stomp it down with pain and throw it back in the shadows as soon as possible with more fear, or start on the road to creating positive change for the good of all, like Ellen did, by dispensing the truth and choosing to walk in the light regardless of the negativity swirling around her.
****
Recognizing Adult Bullying:
The person who is the initiator of adult bullying creates an atmosphere of dissent by forcing others to see things from only one perspective. The sole purpose for this unkind campaign is to force other souls to choose sides instead of collaboration and community. This is initiated by dispensing untruths, pain, negativity, and creating a vortex of fear to hold other souls back from finding their own truth about a particular soul.
****
Adult Bullying is easily identified. Look for sentences like this…
  • You are either with us or against us.
  • Don’t believe anything she says, just listen to me.
  • He is so stupid.
  • I hate him.
“Peace can only travel across the land when souls begin to realize that we are all sharing this experience on earth, together. Those souls that are the strongest within their core, the Lightworkers of the world do not envision a fight, they choose peaceful resolution and always, always, always choose to walk in the light.”

Doll Planking

Believe With Me, Day Sixty-Five… Spreading Love and Light Across the Earth, and being on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about kindness too!

Today’s message: Doll Planking
****
So I’ve been going to Yoga class … a lot! I caught the Yoga bug. I’ve heard people talk about it, blog about, and have seen all the cute Yoga clothing displayed in retail stores. Yet, even though I have been surrounded by Yoga hype I honestly never understood what all the fuss was about until I tried it myself. I’ve found this truth, each soul can hear wisdom from another, see wisdom demonstrated from another, but sometimes until they experience it for themselves there will still be an element missing that if eliminated, prevents a soul from the complete learning experience. So, back in December 2013, I tried something completely new. I hadn’t been to a “gym” for 20 years, but out of the blue, I decided to join the YMCA. It just felt right. And there, I found a Yoga class that is set to music. This is truly wonderful for it helps me to keep my mind off the fact that I am using muscles that hadn’t been activated since the late 1970’s.
     And, do you know what?  All it took was one class. One time. And, Blam-o! like a bad cold, I caught Ken planking Friedenfeldthe Yoga bug. I now venture joyfully to Yoga about 4-5 times a week. I’m going to say something that might be offensive to some souls reading this blog post…but, I even love to plank! It’s true. Planking, for those of you who may have never been to a Yoga class before is like doing a push up except you stay in a stationary position making sure your belly isn’t drooping while squeezing the muscles in your caboose or rear-end.
     Here’s the message I want to get across today. We can have fun with anything we are doing. I took my new love for Yoga one step further and showed my Granddaughter Hailey what planking looked like when she came over to our house to play Barbies. We had so much fun that I started taking funny pictures of Barbie and Ken planking. This has now morphed into a past-time we created called “Doll Planking.” You can do it too! All you have to do is bring a doll or two where ever you go and set your doll up in a planking pose at each new location.Doll planking Friedenfeld

“Life is all about relationships with family, friends, and those in our community. As we travel throughout our days and consistently work on staying in a state of peaceful and joyful alignment, we remain centered in our hearts and not our heads. From this space of the heart we become the creators of our own stories and enjoyable events.”

Patience is Key

Believe With Me, Day Sixty-Four… Spreading Love and Light Across the Earth, and being on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about kindness too!

****
Today’s message: Patience is Key
****

Did you know that dispensing truthful information in small snippets in a non-judgmental and non-threatening style allows for absorption of wisdom on the soul level? When we are helping someone see Old Fashioned Skeleton Keys Friedenfeldthe way to the truth in any situation, we can guide that soul with patience, ask questions, and plant seeds of knowledge without preaching. A soul must gain wisdom by gathering information in whatever way works best. It is impossible to force wisdom on another, because each person has a choice to determine how and if it will be received. An Illuminator of the truth understands that each person may learn at a different speed and we honor all paths.

Things to keep in mind when teaching others:

  • Patience is key.
  • Guide rather than preach.
  • Plant seeds of truth and knowledge with love.

Here are some teaching-the-truth delivery tips:

Place your hand over your heart when you begin speaking. This movement indicates your intention to become completely present in the conversation and keeps you grounded in the location of love.

Pepper questions throughout the teaching conversation instead of using stand-alone statements. This technique creates dialogue and prevents the person in the learning position from feeling as if you are preaching.

“What if…”

“Consider this…”

“Have you ever thought of it this way?”

Example of out-of-alignment teaching:

“When you lie to someone you are doing wrong by people. It’s so obvious. Can’t you see that?”

Example of in-alignment teaching:

“Consider this for a moment. If you look at the situation and use the Golden Rule, can you understand how you would feel if you found out someone had deceived you by telling a similar untruth?”

(Teachings from The Book of Simple Human Truths by Molly Friedenfeld)

“A soul must gain wisdom by gathering information in whatever way works best. It is impossible to force wisdom on another, because each person has a choice to determine how and if it will be received.”

Creating Mini-Miracles

Believe With Me, Day Sixty-Three… Spreading Love and Light Across the Earth, and being on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about kindness too!

****
Today’s message: Creating Mini-Miracles
****
It was over 2.5 years ago I had a vision of having spiritual workshops on the water. As most of you know by now from reading this blog post or my new book, The Book of Simple Human Truths, I love to take photos to document spiritual occurrences to help others realize and recognize that we are surrounded by wonderful mini-miracles every day. All we have to do is come to trust and know that it is the heart that which tells the eye to see the miracles before us.
Here’s one of my simple mini-miracle stories: 
My beloved Peter and I were visiting with a friend at his cabin on Deer Lake in Wisconsin in July 2011 (see picture to the right). IGuide Chairs Friedenfeld3 loved, loved, loved the scenic and tranquil setting overlooking the lake. I remember the day the inspiration arrived. It traveled straight from my heart and landed in my mind like a morning mist upon the water. I could feel my heart yearning for a similar setting so that I could hold spiritual workshops and retreats and bring people together for inspiration in a setting surrounded by beauty. It was on that day as I cast my gaze on this tranquil setting I had the idea to snap a photo so I could refer back to the picture for inspiration and motivation.
This is called Holding A Positive Vision to create a mini-miracle. As featured in my new book, The Book of Simple Human Truths, when you ground any project or positive intention by starting from the space of your heart you grow heart shaped roots which allows you to bring your dreams and inspiration from the ethers to earth. These inspirations become mini-miracles in your daily life instead of the miracles held thousands of years ago by a select few. We all are powerful souls! We are powerful creators! We can accomplish anything we set our positive hearts and minds to and those inspirations can go onto become daily miracles in our lives.
Here’s one other FUN ending to this story that is just beginning… Not only did we find a perfect lake Chairs on Schmidt Lake Friedenfeld3front location, but just a couple days ago at our local garden store we stumbled across the perfect chairs too! (See our new home July 2013, on the lake picture to the right – the setting for Workshops on the Water). This is just one of the exciting things that happens when you hold a positive vision, ground your project in love and allow the Universe to move things around behind the scenes to make your dreams a reality.
