The Inherent Beauty of Carnelian

Bursting with warm earthly colors, carnelian is a gentle stone that inspires one to identify their unique personal strengths and courage to live life to the fullest. A variant of chalcedony, carnelian is mainly composed of silicon dioxide which is commonly known as quartz. Its color range varies from a pale milky orange to deep rust brown. A reminder of the rising sun, fiery sunsets, autumn leaves and the fertile soil of the earth, carnelian is a symbol of the strength and beauty of our planet.

Carnelian has held a strong presence in the history of the world. It has been found in some of the oldest known jewelry, inlaid into the robes of Pu-Abi, a Sumerian Queen from the third millennium, B.C, among Egyptian tombs, in the breastplate of High Priest Aaron and in many other ancient cultures. One of its most popular uses was by the Romans. They used the stone for cameos, intaglios and as seal rings for imprinting seals with wax on correspondence and documents.

Cool to the touch, carnelian is warming to the soul. Its presence and energetic vibration is calming yet invigorating. Reflective of the stability and nurturing qualities of the earth, it mainly assists one in strengthening their mental focus. Carnelian helps to keep one grounded in the awareness of their thoughts while simultaneously activating a fiery creative energy. The ignition of internal resources creates the inspiration, creativity and courage to discover new ways of viewing life experiences.

Carnelian is a powerful tool to assist one in recognizing resources already present in life. Shifting awareness to discover abundance that is already a part of one’s reality opens the mind to the unlimited possibility of thought. When one fully realizes the transformation that results from refocusing thought, it motivates one to aspire to their highest potential. Viewing life from a new perspective creates the realization that anything is possible. This potentiality inspires the courage and motivation to fully embrace inherent talents that make one unique in this world. Carnelian is effective in assisting one to recognize the inherent beauty of every situation, to view challenges as opportunities and as a catalyst for positive change.

As we learn to deliberately direct focused thought by choosing to see the positive aspects in every experience, we allow feelings of freedom to flow through our BEING. Keeping our awareness on the abundant resources of this planet and our freewill ability to shape our futures through intended thought cultivates feelings of deep love, respect, and appreciation for living. This synergy of thought and emotion are the necessary attractive forces that open the doors to living abundantly.

Carnelian assists us in implementing this message into the totality of our BEING. Each and every one of us has everything we need in order to survive. All we need to do is just open our eyes, broaden our minds and perspectives to see the inherent beauty in all things. We already possess an abundance of resources. The most abundance source is found within, in the form of thoughts, ideas and inspiration.

The earth is overflowing with resources as well. Look to the earth, it nurtures and takes care of us. Set intentions to stay grounded and remain calm, allow well BEING to flow. As carnelian assists us in grounding desired goals into physical manifestation, we can intentionally work with it to create a beautiful life in which we attract life experiences that are according to our deepest passions. From discovering and creating work that you love, to attracting healthy lifestyles and relationships, carnelian brings awareness. Allow it to awaken, nurture, and help you manifest the life you truly desire.

Activate an Abundant Mind Set First Thing in the Morning

I would like to share a simple morning ritual that instantly activates an abundant mind set that serves to attract many wonderful experiences throughout the day. This is just an example which can be replaced by your personal tastes and preferences. It can be tailored to any type of morning ritual as abundance is found in everything!

I love to enjoy a hot cup of coffee in the morning! The anticipation of the smell and taste of it draws me out of bed. Upon waking, I first express my appreciation for life, how happy I am to live the life I am leading and how grateful I am for all that I am surrounded by. I then roll out of bed and move into the kitchen. I open a jar that is filled with coffee beans and deliberately recognize and affirm the abundance contained within that jar. As I grind the coffee beans, I realize that the abundance transforms and multiplies into more abundance. Offering my thanks, I then proceed to fill the coffee pot with water. I marvel as it fills up drop by drop and wonder just how many drops it takes to fill that pot! An abundant amount, that's for sure! I then move into the cabinets, in which there are abundance, to select from an abundant supply of mugs. As the pot brews, I think of all the other things in my life that are in abundance.

This is a wonderful meditation. It always starts my day off on just the right vibe. It feels good to start the morning feeling positive and abundant. Since I began activating abundant thinking into my morning routine, I am continuously amazed at all the wonderful experiences that unfold throughout my day. My days and my life keep getting better and better. I am so thankful for the abundance of resources that surround me in every moment!

Please leave a comment or send me a personal message as to how you can activate abundance into your morning ritual, I would love to hear your thoughts!

Find Abundance in Today's Economy

Feeling abundant in today’s economy may be challenging when a majority of the population, including the media, is filled with negative outlooks regarding the uncertain financial future of the United States. This negative attention and focus can trigger overwhelming feelings that can cause us to feel out of control. It is important to remind ourselves that periods of intense change always create the space for new beginnings and pathways to be formed. This is yet another opportunity for personal growth and self transformation. One unchanging and constant fact is the only thing a person can control is the way he or she personally responds and reacts to events and situations that occur outside of the self. Consciously focusing our thoughts on the positive aspects of every experience, long-term goals and the inner abundance of source will keep one feeling the inherent freedom that is our natural birthright.

To attract abundance, we must first find a way to think and feel abundant in the present moment. Although it does take a certain degree of disciplined effort, mastering this mind set can be EASY and FUN to do. All that is required is a shift of focus. Maintaining focus on the positive aspects in every experience and seeking the inherent beauty in all things will allow us to feel and recognize the abundance of resources already present in our lives. Sounds easy? It is. The following are a few simple tips to assist in shifting your focus to recognize the boundless abundance that you already possess.

  • First things first, reduce your amount of exposure to the media. Limiting the amount of time one listens and watches the news will help to keep focus on what really matters; your positive state of mind and over all feelings of well-being. Although it is important to stay tuned into current events, the more one listens to the programming, the easier it is to focus on it. The news mainly keeps a person tuned in and focused on the negative aspects. Reduce your exposure.

  • Clearly state your intentions. This is a time of change and reform that is creating an abundance of new opportunities. Make use of this time to seek out experiences in life that positively impact you and make you feel good. Deliberate setting of intentions instantly launches thought in a desired direction. Set intentions to prosper, to thrive, and to attract and discover work that inspires passion. Intention setting empowers a person to feel in control of the way they respond to circumstances and incites productive actions. Declaring positive statements lifts one to the belief that achieving fulfillment of their deepest dreams is achievable. This is the necessary fuel that transforms dreams into a reality. Move forward by setting positive intentions.

  • Actively seek out abundance in simple things. Look for and recognize abundance in and around your environment. Abundance is defined as anything in which there is more than enough of. Discovering abundance in the simple things cultivates a master mindset that will ultimately serve to attract more desired experiences of having more than enough. Think abundantly, confirm the abundance already present in your reality, and generate feelings of abundance from within. Remaining disciplined in these actions will allow one to capture the essence of abundance. Experiencing the essence of abundance is the ultimate key to allowing it to flow more freely into one’s life. This is the Law of Attraction in action.

  • Be thankful for all things and experiences that are already present in your reality. An attitude of gratitude expands your focus to embrace all the positive aspects already taking place in your life.

This planet is filled with an abundant amount of resources. The most abundant resource available to each and every one of us is the creative source of our minds from which all thought, idea and inspiration are created. The way we think, feel and choose to perceive the world can open the doors to abundance and attract everything we need in order to survive. The time is NOW! Seek the inherent beauty and positive aspect in every experience. As one maintains this discipline, abundance is already present!

To assist you in cultivating a master mind set of ABUNDANCE, we have created an Intentional Scrapbooking KitTM that is intended to open your eyes to the abundance already present in your life. This project which includes VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS will have you instantly thinking and feeling more abundant in the present moment. CLick HERE to view this kit!

A Resurgence of Hope in America

What a wonderful opportunity to be a part of the resurgence of hope that is sweeping across the planet as a result of Obama’s election! With emotions running high, it does not matter if one was for or against Obama in this presidential election, what matters most is WHAT each and every one of us chooses to place our focus on.

An event that will be recorded in history as a time that shaped our nation and ignited hope across the world, the results of the election is spreading awareness that all dreams are possible. As Obama takes the 2008 election by storm, he brings hope to individuals in every corner of the world.

It is amazing how hope can inspire people to lead better lives, to focus on all the positive aspects that each experience has to offer. Hope is a time of new beginnings, a time to create according to ones highest potential, a time to become more than we ever knew was possible. Hope is the fuel that revives a deep felt joy for living.

As individuals, we can tap into this time of new beginnings to commit to making positive changes through our choices and decisions. The energy that hope brings can lift us above and beyond previous self-limiting thoughts and self-defeating behaviors. Hope creates the belief that says “Yes, I can achieve this!”

Jump into the opportunity that this time brings and set your intentions….declare that you are going to live the life that you have been imagining for yourself right NOW. It is time for you to feel free, to succeed at your goals and obtain what you truly desire in life.

This is a time of unlimited potential and endless possibilities. Let’s intend to keep our focus on all the potential and good the results of this election will bring. Together we can positively unite in hope as a whole, and at the same time apply the hope that we are now feeling to personally renew our zest and joy for living. Discover your strengths and unique talents and incorporate them into your life. When we live and work according to what we love and are good at, we thrive and life becomes easy and free. The most important contribution anyone can give to this world is to work according to their passion.

The most important thing to remember is that one must find a way to keep hope alive in their self first, if others are to follow. Do what you love, seek the positive aspects in every experience, see the beautiful abundance of resources that surround us on this planet, and rise to your highest potential. Be a beacon of hope and light. Light the way so that all may see.
