What’s your ‘Happy’ color? How to find it, if you don’t know…

Most do this naturally, but once you recognize the silent joy, something as simple as a color can bring you…life becomes magically COLORFUL!

Background: I began researching the color pink many years ago. How it increases sells, draws people in, & is an instant magnet. However, this research was to assist small business owners in growing their business, with colors.

Then I opened Livelove and entitled myself a Pinkologost, one who studies pink. At first it was kind of a joke, but as our business evolved, more & more request came in about the connection between color and joy.

That’s when I transitioned the pinkologist to a working title.

How colors can change Everything.

Throughout my research I would interview people who were bold in showing off their favorite color (like me) & those who seemed to be colorless.

I noticed those who had an idea of their favorite color/s seemed to be more at peace. All, had a sense of happiness & joy, which followed them, wherever they went. Those who were unaware of their favorite colors or tones, seemed to mimic the lack of color in their lives. They discussed gloom & doom topics & dismissed the thought that a COLOR could change their attitude.

How to find your color that brightens your life?

1. Become more aware of which ones you are attracted to.

2. When you see a color that draws you in (if possible) touch it, stare at it, & allow your emotions to take over.

3. Now begin to add that color or tone into your life. I use the term tone, as well, because I found that if someone loves blue, they have several blue hues, that make them smile. The same with me…I love one particular pink immensely, but I enjoy all tones of pink.

4. If you enjoy this a great deal, entitle yourself…a blueologist or like me a pinkologist! It means you study the color that brings you joy! (Doesnt that sound like fun?)

You don’t have to spray paint your hair for this to work! Lol!!!! I only do this occasionally, for a good laugh! But the amount of ‘pink’ in this picture does make me Smile.

Go ahead, begin to search for that color that can instantly put a smile on your face or comfort you from all types of harm.

Then begin to embrace and utilize your ‘color’. It becomes similar to a game of hide & seek. You will begin to buy those clothes that you are drawn to and yes you will be amazed at how many are based on your favorite color.

Happy Color Hunting!

If I could give you anything…ANYTHING what would you ask for?

Let’s begin with the old Arabic folklore…A Genie in the bottle! How many times have you been in a spot where that Genie and their three wishes would come in handy? Wishing, praying, hoping for answers to your problems? Now let me ask you…if you received this opportunity would you take it?

You probably just rolled your eyes and thought, “Duh! Teena everyone would take it…you would be a fool not to!

AND YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT!

But what if? What if the government fails, we are all starving, and living in poverty, only focusing on the terrible current circumstances? Would you still use those three wishes?

I guess a better question could be, would you know what to wish for or what you desire most of all? Let’s practice…wave my hands in the air, turn around, sit down say the magical words,”YOU MY FRIEND, BECAUSE YOU’ KNOW’ ME I can grant you this… YOU HAVE THREE WISHES!”

Get ready, set, go…

What? What were your wishes? Hmmm let me guess…I want more dollars. Why? Because I know money can ease my pain and suffering.How? (You might ask) Oh good question!

If I had more money…I could pay my student loans off, my credit cards, property, and my MEDICAL BILLS. Or I can have the surgery I need to feel better ect.

BUT what if I had more than more money? That would be my next wish. Oh I could really ‘change’ things up! That’s why I play the lottery because if I win…my wish coming true will take care of my children, grandchildren and all my friends. And the charities I would give more than the writer of Harry Potter, who is known for giving the most money to charities than anyone on the planet? Wow, I just realized J.K. Rowling ‘could’ have become a forerunner for all Billionaires to follow…Instead of who can earn the most it will be who can give the most!!! Hmmmm I like the way you think J.K.!💖💖💖💖💖💖

Okay so MONEY would definetly be one wish on almost everyone’s list!!! What else would you wish for? Go ahead allow yourself to wish! After all I am not a Genie and this blog is not a magical bottle, you stumbled upon… (a long inhale-exhale) OR IS IT?👀

Shhhh, I can’t tell you all I know and have learned, at this point but I can ALLOW YOU TO TRY IT!!!!👄👅💟💄

Try for only today…to create a wish list! What do you deeply desire? If there were an APP that you could go to and type in…’I wish for _______!’

What would your wish look like, feel like, create for you? Go ahead create your ‘Genie’ in a bottle wish list!

Then come back tomorrow to read the next portion of this story. But promise me this, if you receive something on your list before tomorrow please LET ME KNOW! I will shout you out at the end of my post.

I am so excited for us!!!! Come along with me as I write with one intention…To Show You How to Find, Allow, and Receive your Genie. But let’s leave the bottle empty to become a home for bottom feeders. Let’s enjoy this moment of freedom together!

I am so excited I hope you feel the GOOD VIBRATIONS!!!

Tomorrow’s title…Do you realize how many times you kill your own Genie?

Like the spider in this picture…if you know me, you know I am terrified of spiders, but I felt empowered by my writing session this morning. Therefore, I decided to be this little spiders ‘Genie’ but his fears overcame him. Everytime I attempted to allow him to jump off…he ran the opposite direction! Until he jumped to his own death and drowned in my coffee! Why????? Why do I care? I guess I understood him after attending @The World Tour in Nashville Tn. for Karatbars. The company who is changing the world by allowing the world to choose Abundance (A post for a later date if you have received a personal invitation from me you should feel privileged. IF you haven’t you have my permission to yell at me publicly and I will send you one😉😉!).

If you need some help with those ‘Life Issues’ get in touch with me!! I will do whatever it takes to fulfill my mission…Change the World with One Happy Thought, at a TIME!!!!

You guys can’t even imagine how exciting this journey is!!!!

As always….

Written by: Teena Drake the author, visionary, girl (haha), who loves sharing happy thoughts with you to Co create a better world for us to share and for generations to come to enjoy! After all our universal goal is to Better, isn’t it? And the woman who has ALOT of Gold, oops sorry that was a secret message to all my @Karatbar friends!

If you were trapped in a box what would you do to get out?

I shutter as I write this simple, but earth shattering message. It feels like the sound from a CRASH and then another CRASH, CRASH, with the last being the greatest vibration of them all CRASHHHH echoing through your bones from a vibrating Gong!!!!

Now imagine being trapped in a box still alive, but hearing someone a friendly voice, just steps away from this suffocating box. Tell me, say it out loud while reading this…what would you do? Let it out! What would you do?

I would scream and scream. If I didn’t get their attention I would find a way to…. (You fill in the blank).

The Gong is struck again with a firm hit and steady hold, Gonggggggggg the deep vibration echoes through you! And without a doubt you can answer, “If you were trapped in a box what would you do to get out?”

Are you creating enough vibrations to get out of your imaginary box? Or are you sitting and wishing to get out of the box and so you choose to die in the box.

We need you to vibrate with us in sweet harmony. Why? So you can feel how amazing it is to Livelove & Carry On.

We appreciate you!

Cat Litter & Relationships

How can cat litter and relationships be compared? If you are having trouble in your relationship, at this time, you do not want to miss this message.

Is your partner driving you crazy? Do you wonder why you even try? One thing is for certain if you are struggling…You are living in the Cat Litter Box with generic litter. You know the kind that does not cover up any of the smell and generic toilet paper is more absorbent than this bunch of rocks, you attempted to save a dollar bill on. (Pause…Take a big whiff, inhale, and smell the nasty litter you are using that is ineffective).

Living in the cat litter box with your partner is disgusting. It means that you take a poo, half way cover it up, allow them to do the same, and your smelly dance is never-ending. 

For example: If you are struggling in your relationship say out loud ‘why’ you feel the way you do.

Did you hear your fears from the past come out? Do you realize most of what you said is no different from cat poo in the box? It happens, it will stay there until it is cleaned up, and it smells to high heaven, until it is bagged and disposed of.

Most arguments involve words like: should, could, would, wish, why did you, what if (which is asked due to their or your paradigm= past), how could you and the past continues to take over the future. 

“You are living in the past or holding your significant other to yesterday. Yet expecting them to not return the favor.”

That’s just like standing in a cat litter box taking a poop, your partner doing the same, although it is covered, you keep digging it up, and smelling the disgusting aroma. 

When in reality once the poop is there the choices are inevitable 1. Enjoy the aroma. Or 2. Clean it out by bagging it, tying the top to seal it and disposing of the evidence.

Does this mean it never happened? Come on we all know sh*t happens. But do we want to continue to dig it back up? Is a better question. 

Are you and your partner living in the cat litter together? Worse yet, have you decided to be cheap and using the kind that never gets rid of the smell? 

Recognize what you are doing, decide what or how the significant other could fix your emotions (not that they can, this is only to recognize why you are feeling so irritable with them), and make a good decision for you both.

It is not about the solution, it is about getting out of the disgusting cat liter box!

My greatest hope is you get a little laugh and a lot of relief. You are awesome and worthy of feeling good! 

Sending you LOTS of LOVE!

God loves you.

Living in the past can always be compared to poo. The past happens, but do you want to continue to live then? When you can decide today to feel and smell better? 

Livelove.teena@gmail.com a message for you if you need it. 

Thank you for reading.

When you wake up feeling sad…It is usually because you are focusing on yesterday, instead of what you CAN change…today

What the heck are you? Are you a writer? Speaker? Coach, Author, Educator, or Entertainer? What the heck are you? 

After my last speech at Toastmasters in KC, these and many more questions filled my brain. After someone asked the above questions and, “What are your plans, next?” 

I spent the last 24 hours with a sense of sadness as I allowed myself to reminisce through the past. Did I say something wrong? Maybe I am too much? What am I? Who am I?  What if I can’t make it? What if? Why? Maybe I am not good enough?

NEXT…I woke up this morning allowing the same questions to pound through my head like a bull in a china shop! WHAT AM I DOING? You see I was focusing on what had already been done. 

Finally, I found my manuscript from a coaching session of an elementary student! In the very beginning, I taught her how to find and use a ‘Happy Word’. Then I explained that as long as she was focusing on what she CAN CHANGE and not the past, everything would be fine. For example: She had failed a spelling test and was extremely upset with herself for not studying. I redirected her attention to the fact that the only thing she can change is the next spelling test. Unless of course the teacher would let her re-take the last exam. 

Day after day we would discuss why she was sad or angry. Each time it was something she had already done and couldn’t take back. 

Do you do this? I do! If I allow myself to become engrossed in the past. I become sick to my stomach, don’t eat, and wallow in self pitty. But the truth is you or myself, cannot redo yesterday, we can only improve today. 

My answer to all the questions are YES! I am a writer, speaker, coach, published author, educator, entertainer and…much more.

Just like you, I must feel down on occasion to enjoy the up moments. 

If you are feeling sad, depressed, frustrated or angry today…allow your brain to feel the emotions long enough to remind you, this is NOT THE WAY YOU WANT TO FEEL! 

Now, take your smile back. Find your many titles and wear them with pride. I know it isn’t always easy to let go of the past. Or to forgive those who irritated you. However, I promise if you will hold on…one more minute…find a happy thought and reset your vibration. 

Some ideas on how to quickly reset:

  1. Find your happy word
  2. Play uplifting music
  3. Do the twist in your living room
  4. Jump up and down
  5. Cry, but only for a little while
  6. Ask one friend to remind you of something you have done GOOD! 
  7. Write your life resume
  8. Excercise
  9. Kiss your lover like it could be your last
  10. Or just say happy words until you reset your vibration

Last time I checked no one is perfect. I know I am not, but our imperfections mold us and allow our talents to be illuminated! 

Sometimes giving up feels like it would be easier. But I promise even that phase or process of giving up hurts worse than a reset. So I beg of you if you are reading this post…right now…please know:

YOU ARE WONDERFUL JUST THE WAY YOU ARE! YOU HAVE GIFTS TO SHARE WITH THE WORLD! YOU ARE WORTHY OF BEING LOVED! YOU ARE WORTHY OF BEING HAPPY. FEEL HOW AWESOME YOU ALREADY ARE AND KEEP ON ADDING TITLES TO YOUR LIFE WITH PRIDE.

ONE UNIVERSAL GOAL! We all have it, whether you know it or not…so what is it?

I am so excited to share with you! Please, as you read allow yourself to feel the emotions. See the connection between why you do what you do and the universal goal of life. Allow the message to empower you to create the life you have always wanted. Without further delay…THE ONE & ONLY GOAL all living species share!

Have you ever pondered the ‘meaning’ of life? Have you ever felt like there was no meaning? Maybe you have battled with depression, anger, and frustration, on a regular basis. I have spent the past fifteen months asking this simple question…What is the meaning of life? Each client has assisted me in answering this question. They have allowed me to know their fears, emotions, and most intimate desires!

Finally, the answer has developed. The one universal goal to all living species is…

TO BETTER!

Yes, it is as simple as one word, “BETTER!”

For example: The young mother who is living in poverty, attempting to raise her children to be upstanding citizens has one goal…to be more abundant to create a BETTER life for herself and family. Life will be better!

The unknown musician plays music to feel better or to share with the world a better feeling. Life will be better!

Nurses passionately take care of those in need to feel physically better. Life will be better!

Religions make a promise if you will follow these guidelines, you will have a better life or here after. Life will be better!

People who perform catastrophic events think that performing this act will make them FEEL BETTER.

A wild animal who has been caught will most likely attack, why? To feel better or in this sense he or she is fighting back to ensure safety, which is better than being harmed.

Yes, even the negative events or emotions are a part of the Universal Goal. Because those feelings of resistance are indicators that there is something better.

A person who commits suicide, thinks they will feel better, because they don’t see any way for improvement here on earth.

A tree, what about a tree do they share this goal? Yes, think about the beautiful trees who stretch their roots as far as they can reach, to ensure they can always receive the proper nutrients. To Grow Better!

A military woman or man, does not ‘do’ what he/she does because they LOVE the many hurdles they must jump, but rather to be a part of something better. To protect their country and assist in creating a BETTER LIFE. (Thank you for your service).

What about yourself? Think back about your inner desires, visions, and goals. Why do you have them? Why do you continue to persevere? To feel better. To create a better life for your family. To create a better life for yourself.

What is your meaning to YOUR LIFE? Maybe you want to enjoy abundance of money, love, helping other, friends, adventure, spiritual connection. Maybe you want to share your beliefs to assist another in living a better life. We are all in this together and therefore I ask you to choose to: feel better, do better, improve to a better state. After all…the meaning of life is whatever you want it to be. However the one universal goal, we all share, boils down to one simple word…

BETTER!

If you need a little boost of energy to assist you in living the life you have always dreamed of send us an email…Livelove.teena@gmail.com or Teena.drake@gmail.com

We are now offering the first session/message for free and a flat fee for messages on a ‘need’ be basis. Rather than paying for a coach when you feel so good a little extra help, isn’t necessary.
