Why do we feel guilty for…

Why do we feel guilty for…the tears we weep? Or the feelings we feel? Our flaws? Sensuality? Sexuality? Labels? Titles? Tell me, will someone please, I so beg of you…tell me, WHY DO WE FEEL GUILTY FOR BEING ALIVE? Or HUMAN?

How did we forget? This journey is and always has been a GIFT! A beautiful gift to be explored to FEEL!

FEEL the tears drench your cheeks, almost as to cleanse the soul to illuminate all possible and most pleasant solutions. Embrace your flaws as blessings to explore how strong you really are! Allow the erotic moments to swift you away into the sensual gardens of feeling the physical body. Choose the labels & titles of roles only your heart desires to experience.

If guilt is necessary in your life lessons… feel it, understand it, and release it to move out of your life. To allow you to live this journey as the GIFT it Truly IS!

God Bless!

Suicide Survivor…How Sunshine Messages Evolved

It is now afternoon on December the 7th, 2018. I have done everything to avoid writing this blog post. I mean EVERYTHING from clean the dishes, take a short nap, meditate, I even worked out to STOP this post from being written. However, no matter what…it is what, it is and this heartfelt, deep, writing is much-needed.

Before I write any more, I must ask for your spiritual uplifting thoughts. For me as well as for you. This will be a posting that is like none other, I have ever written, but it is from the depths of my Valleys that I dare to share this story. My intentions are to inspire, encourage, motivate, and uplift you to live a full life. Not a humdrum life, but rather a spirit filled and led life. One of forgiveness, understanding, contribution, and LOVE above all else. If you will do everything in life including speak, teach, and be with LOVE in the center of your intentions, You will always LIVE and KNOW that you are loved, even in the darkest of valleys. For my part in your reality, I love you, I am so sorry, Please Forgive Me and Thank YOU! Thank YOU!

One year ago, I hosted my very first Happy Celebration! I spent the money to have food, a venue, invites, the entire ‘EVENT’ to celebrate the opening of my company Livelove LLC. I had great intentions, but as the flu reports rose and the snow began to blow, we were sure very few people would be venturing out. However, my friends, mom, and one man…did show. Therefore, the show must go on! I gave a shortened version of my speech/ seminar and the man who was ‘just passing thru’ stayed. After he enjoyed some snacks and listened intently he said, “You are on to something! Keep on telling this story. LOOK & SEARCH for people to tell your message to.”

I did not know this man it was our first encounter. He had a sweet spirit and was extremely encouraging. Later on my co-worker explained his circumstances and I dismissed the entire event. 

Until, today! I actually thought of this man two other times, throughout the year. Once was at a local pub, my husband and I visited one time, since we were back in town and the following day. 

You see this man’s words rang through my head the entire year. I would hear his almost appearing to be a plead, he would say, “Don’t quit sending out this message, you are on to something!”

When I mentioned seeing him out and about to my colleague, I was told some very sad news. This man had decided, planned, & completed SUICIDE! I began to weep as soon as I heard! 

Yes, I wept for the loss of another life. I wept for his family, children, and friends. But just as you are reading this and relating it to your own life, I was doing the same! I wept for my life! I wept in gratefulness that I didn’t follow through with my contemplations. During my deepest darkest valleys, I too could have been another statistic. Another lost soul, begging to find a BETTER FEELING. 

I can remember after my accident going to sleep at night and wishing to not wake up only to think the next morning how darn thankful… I did. I still cannot share with you all of my deepest valley times because my strength and new vibrations are focused on shining brighter. However, I can tell you I have been at my lowest…with a plan, process & all. Yet, I am so grateful I am a survivor! If you feel weak, depressed, and alone hold on tight to a happier color, a fun song or even a small compliment. You cannot imagine how many people who really do love you and I promise, “This feeling will PASS!” 

You are important to someone. I PROMISE! This particular man lost hope like so many others I know. And the truth is they themselves did not complete the act out of spite to hurt you, their loved ones. In fact, the complete opposite is true. Many survivors will tell you they did not go through with it because they feared of hurting others. Not the other way around. That means that people who completed the act, simply felt like your life was better off without them. And still, afterwards, they do not want you to feel guilty or avenge their legacy. Instead, finding your own happiness is what they desire most. Ensuring that you NEVER FEEL LESS THAN is their greatest wish. 

Fast Forward from a year ago and today. This year has been a blur to me. It has been full of changes, loopty loops, and flip arounds. As I reflect on 2018 many emotions have occurred, all beneficial. Sunshine Messages came about, close to the time the man I mentioned before, passed away. And today they serve many people. Whether they are struggling with Suicidal thoughts or dealing with other ‘life’ events. Sometimes they serve only to brighten someone’s day. 

Many people ask me what Sunshine Messages are and where they come from and my shortest version of an answer is, “As I lay in the bed day after day, I would pray for easement, understanding, & a brighter day. My heart would feel heavy for fear I was not ‘doing’ anything ‘worthwhile.’ I begged for answers. Why? Why did this happen to me? Why have you forsaken me? Was I so BAD that I must endure such torment and pain? What about him, her, or even them…their wretched ways. Yet they are allowed to carry on? Why? Why me?”

My Answer, “Because you know a better way. You understand the light and how to vanish the fright. Because you agreed to be a messenger of hope, happiness, and LIGHT! Because you were born with this gift and you needed to be reminded. Because you are you and now you see, it is time to let your visions FREE!”

My Response, “SO YOU had to break my leg, allow me to suffer, feel defeated, beaten & broken? I was on my KNEES (which hurt even more)! Begging for answers, yet nothing? My anger rises to the sky! MY QUESTIONS are SHARP and FIERCE! Hey HELLO, HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN ME? I AM ONE OF THE GOOD GALS? I am trying to do as you ask, but dag on how much more can I take?”

My Answer, “Not much more, be still, be patient, & LISTEN. Enjoy each person. Enjoy each moment. Only speak from your heart what your true desires are. BE PATIENT!”

My response, “Still here! Waiting!

Me, “Hello?”

Me, “Are you there?”

Me, “Am I CRAZY?”

My Answer, “Only in a fun way. LOL. You are Sunshine! You are shinning BRIGHT! When you receive the message act. When you question…pause, be still, & listen. Perfection is not the goal, because it is a label. Rather uplifting, spirit-filled, happiness, and JOY now those are the GOALS!” 

FF today, YOUR SUNSHINE MESSAGE, “YOU ARE AMAZING! I am in AWE of YOU! YES, YOU! YOU are just like me, you are chosen to live a life full of joy, laughter, happiness, and love. Ask for what you desire. Live enjoying the blessings no matter how great or small! If you are struggling at this moment…feel the emotion and ask yourself ‘Why do I feel this way?’ I guarantee it is something from the past. Isn’t it time to LET IT GO? Not you or anyone else can reverse the past to assist us with the present! Goodness, everyone would change something if they could, instead think of how you want to feel tomorrow? How do you want to be treated? What does your life look like tonight, tomorrow, or next week? Guess what? That vision will come to fruition. If today is not a good day, hold on tight because tomorrow will be better. Perfect? Define it? If it is unachievable, then by all means, change your vision around until it fits perfectly with you! 

If you are like Teena and many others who are Suicide Survivors, take time to be grateful for this moment. Dwell on all the Beauty in your life that you would have missed had that Valley time ‘got you’. You are beautiful! You are AMAZING! YOU need to SHINE! Share your story. Ask someone if they need a little boost. Send out love for others. And take care of yourself too!

Thank you for allowing me to share this message with you! Sending you relief, awareness, understanding, love & a great deal of laughter. Because life is about having fun & DO NOT FORGET THAT! 

I attended a seminar about the prevention of Suicide a week ago and I learned so much. However, the most important lesson I have learned is, If you are worried about someone…ASK! Ask the question, “Are you okay? Are you suicidal?”

Lesson learned!

& just like that a blessing appears…

As my day became all messed up, YES…MY FAVORITE DAY of the week MONDAY! It began as normal, get up, shower, dress, go to work…you get the idea. Except, I am unlike most people. Monday’s are my FAVORITE DAY OF THE WEEK! Therefore, I never ‘work’ anywhere or do anything on Mondays that would disrupt my beautiful day of the week!

Today, was no different. My schedule had been a bit altered, but I didn’t mind. I decided to proceed forward with a huge smile on my face.

I played Jingle Bell Rocks at least 20 times, as I choreographed our next dance. I practiced and practiced, but something was not right.

Ever had those moments where you felt like bursting into tears & curling up in fetal position, only to feel sorry for yourself? It is a strange emotion.

As the music roared throughout the house, I pressed pause, to answer my mother’s phone call. We chit chatted for a few minutes and then it happened! (My poor mother, sometimes I know she wonders why she even called lol). I burst into tears and rambled out a bunch of silly crud, that was not true. Not towards her, but about me & my selfish moment. She provided encouraging words, as always.

After I hung up, I sent her a text of apology and appreciation. She always listens to me, even when I sound silly! However, mom didn’t reply. Instead I received a number for our friend who is a Cranial Sacroil Therapist. She told me to call her for my honey bunny.

Please let me interrupt this writing to say, when I received the number and name, my first thought was,”Mother, I am the one who needs direction right now! I am the one who was crying and feeling sorry for myself. But okay, if you are more concerned about ERIC 🤨🙄🤔, then I will call her! Maybe it will get my mind off of all this crud that I cant figure out, anyways!”

Yes, I recognize how selfish that sounded, but I needed for you to understand my mentality, at that moment, for you to see the amazing blessing!!!

I read her short text, pushed the blue highlighted number and called our friend. When she answered I was unsure I had the correct number. I continued to explain how Eric had been sick bla bla bla.

She interrupted me and apologized, but she had been sick for TEN WEEKS! She explained everything and right before we hung up…I spoke up.

“Hey, maybe I can help you! I have a bunch of ‘new’ developed skill sets and I think I can help.”

She paused and said, “When? I need you as soon as possible.”

Now at that moment, my mindset did a 360! I was not the same person I was ten minutes ago. I felt alive, ecstatic, wonderful & terrific. My mind was racing to find all the possible strategies to help this well respected healer and our friend.

We set our time and I am off to meditate! With fulfilled intentions. I am so excited!

My Monday is back & just like that a blessing APPEARS!

You see, we all have down, questioning, weak moments. But in those small moments a blessing will appear! If you simply follow your heart.

I had no idea that this woman of many talents would need me. I had no idea that text would change my mindset in a split second. But even in my weakest moment, I trusted.

Have faith my friends! Have faith that what’s best for you will always be! Have faith in YOU! God LOVES YOU! YES, EVEN YOU & ME.

I pray for you to have many blessings appear.

Happy Monday…enjoy the greatest day of the week. Even if it’s for the simplest of reason…which is, YOU WOKE UP!

Ever need a vibrational reset, message Livelove, we got you covered!

Thank you for reading.

How do you know what you want? & how to receive it…

How do you know what you want? By understanding what you love.

Begin with a quick list of what you KNOW, without question, that you love.

For example: Start saying what you love right now…GO

Name your children, family, friends, animated objects, activities, sports, travel, places, ect.

Please do not think about it too much, but rather enjoy and begin to shine brighter the more you list.

(The first time I did this I couldn’t stop. Throughout the day, I would remember more and my list kept growing. It is a fun activity.)

This beginning process is not a task to begin and end, but rather a continual process which grows and grows for you. Similar to a beautiful garden in Hawaii. Although there are specific growing seasons just like everywhere else, the abundance of vegetation growth is amazing and never ending. Therefore, you don’t focus on the lack of. Instead, the beauty of the over abundance & diversity, continues to fill the land of paradise. Same with LOVE.

Next, add to your questioning and list creating. Ask yourself, What do I want?

For example, I want a new car, a baby, a lover, a lifetime partner, joy, happiness, more abundance, more money, a new home, a new career, more friends, to be…

This list is the same as your love one, all you need to do is ramble it off. State your desires and as you continue to add new ones, allow yourself to ask.

Once you have began these two separate, but combined evolving lists, it’s now time to recognize what you have already accomplished with little to no effort.

By asking those two questions & allowing yourself to answer, freely…you have already accomplished:

1. Changing your mindset.

2. Redirected YOUR FOCUS from everyone else to just YOU!

3. Rediscovered many blessings you already have by creating your love list.

4. Recognized that asking for what you desire is due to creating your love list…which in turn creates,’Your Why!’

How do you know what you want?

A. Find what you love.

B. Find your desires.

C. Discover your, Why?

D. Allow your joy to over take you, as you combine the two lists…to understand Your Why.

For example: If you want to be a New York’s Best Seller, that is your desire. Why?

Because in your ‘love list’ you probably said, “I Love to help others.”

And you realize the NY’s Best Seller list will ensure that your writings will reach a wide variety of people.

You see, your why becomes unnecessary, after awhile. Almost like a silent step that you must take, but due to knowing your love & desires, the why step becomes automatic. Therefore, this process evolves into a FEELING activity.

The universe doesn’t care what your desires are. That’s why it is up to you to know what you love & desire. This way YOU are in control of YOUR LIFE and not tending to someone elses.

Have you already began your lists?

Do what you love & love what you do…isn’t this what we all ‘desire’? To be better?

Go for it, make your day, & begin to focus on what you really want! Leave the worries behind you. Focus on your own desires.

You have got this!

Are we tired of this yet? Politics/ Leadership…what is your Why?

Sticky subjects are the worst, but someone has to highlight the obvious because we continue to allow history to repeat itself. So here I go…

Stop using the term ‘Make America Great Again!’ Your ANCESTORS are rolling over in their grave! Using the term ‘AGAIN’ so loosely!

We have come so far…the entire world has come so far! From way back then or whenever these confused leaders are referring to! And NO I am not speaking of one particular leader…to be honest I think we need a reboot, but that’s another post.

Instead of all this nonsense…let’s GRASP HANDS AS A NATION or even A WORLD… United we stand, divide we fall…STAND UP WITH ME! STAND UP TOGETHER!

Not in a furry or with fierceness, but rather out of kindness from your very soul!

Allow your light to shine! If someone differs from you…embrace their thoughts.

If someone is mean to you…lift them up for they are fighting or feeding their own internal beast.

It is time my friends! To stand up!!! Lift each other up…utilize two words, BE KIND!

We can live in harmony!

I know what has happened & yes, I too feel the sting of losing, even more to the hands of those who are lost & without a beautiful vision of the future!

But I can’t hold this message back, ANY LONGER!

It is for you, You, & YOU! From the President of the United States of America to the Queen of England, to all who will read, share & most importantly ACT!

Act out of love, speak your why, find your own how…to illuminate the greatness ALL AROUND YOU!

Wherever, you may be at this time, allow the vibrations of this message to soothe your soul. To soften your heart & change your focus.

Focus on the vision you so desire. All the Kings horses and all the Kings wo/men WILL be able to put together a new, more beautiful, VISION, than ever known to mankind, before!

Idc… what religious background, race, economical status, educational, or nationality you claim to be…This will only work if YOU STAND UP, CLASP HANDS, & BE THE EXAMPLE YOU DESIRE TO SEE IN AMERICA and/or THE WORLD!

Each and everyday make a better decision or choice, than the day before. Allow your words towards others to be kind.

If you falter, regroup & begin again. Remember, we all have greatness within us…it is time to let it out!

What if…tonight’s news only had news based on Acts of Random Kindness? Would you continue to watch?

Take the steps towards EVERYONE’S BETTER…rather than reverting back to an undefined ‘great again’.

Step 1 Look for the good in all people, places, and situations.

Step 2 When you see or feel something you don’t like…refer to step 1.

Step 3 Before you speak or act…PAUSE & ensure your intentions are good and pure.

Step 4 If you slip back into your old ways, refer to Step 1.

Step 5 Know that we are all spiritually in this together. Our 1 universal goal, we all share is BETTER!

Therefore, isn’t it time for you to act, feel, & Enjoy BETTER?

Together we can accomplish BETTER FOR ALL OF MANKIND!

God Bless…this truly is a Sunshine Message.

I am only the messenger, but I am so honored to be just that!

With Greater Love than YOU CAN PHATHOM…I Wish for you Beautiful Blessings!

If you are reading this, know that I am in Awe of you and you are greatly appreciated.

I am shaking in my shoes after that one!

Love, Sunshine!

My daughter’s Sunshine Message (shared with you)

Sunshine Message (created for my daughters & shared with you)

Why would you apply for jobs? If that’s not what you really want? Yes, income or revenue production is key to Living. However, if a place of employment is where you will spend over 75 % of your time, why not LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT?

So how do you find the perfect job, career, employment or Entraprunal experience to ‘apply’ for?

You begin with going back and deciding what you really want and maybe, a little of why you want it, for substance…then create a list of all the wonderful possibilities you can APPLY YOURSELF FOR.

Hmmmm, let me see when applying for J.O.B….ask yourself why would I ‘desire’ to do this? What parts of this will bring me joy & How can I benefit as well as assist others?

Hmmmm, what does bring me joy? Without fear or worries or PLANS OR EVEN WHYS…what brings you true bliss?
This should only take you a few minutes because within seconds you will be like: where is that…or this…or how can I do this or that, because you will remind yourself of JOYFUL practices, you have incorporated into your life, since you were very young.
But how does this help you get a job? It doesn’t! It helps you to find a feeling, terrific LIFESTYLE!

Create the lifestyle vision in your head and do not slow down, do not look back, or frett.

Instead, put your high heels on and let your light shine!

Knowing what and how you want to feel, is all you need and the universe will rearrange to ensure you feel, have, do, and be, whatever you choose! Wow!
