Sometimes in relationships, we find we are going in opposite directions from our friends or loved ones. Try not to get your feathers ruffled, waddle along your own path and detach with love.
It is hard when relationships aren’t going the way we want. Sometimes we realize it is not all it “quacked” up to be. We invest so much of our time and love in people and then wonder what happened when we seem to be moving in a different direction from our loved ones. Try not to take it personally. Sometimes people come into our lives for a season because we have something to learn from each other. When the lesson is learned, the energy to hold the relationship together may not be there. Or maybe, we are supposed to learn that we aren’t supposed to extend ourselves where it isn’t appreciated. Almost always, forcing it will likely cause us to be more frustrated and anxious.
If you find yourself in this situation, always remember that if something is meant to be, it will come back around naturally. Don’t force it. Try to focus on the many other wonderful things and people in your life. There is always someone who will appreciate your positive approach and beautiful spirit. And remind yourself, “you got this!” © August 31, 2014, Nancy Hickman, M.Ed., LLC

I recently made a visit to my mother and took pictures of a fountain near where she was staying. Fountains remind me of God’s endless supply of energy, love and abundance. A fountains continuous flow is an example of how energy can flow to us. When we look at our lives, we have to ask ourselves if the flow is going in the right direction. “Are we accessing God’s endless supply?”
Everything in life is made up of energy and can be scientifically broken down to cells and atoms. Even the air we breath has energy. Those particles all carry a positive and negative charge and attract other particles to them through magnetism. We also attract experiences to us through the same type of magnetism. We emit positive and negative energy through our thoughts and through our emotions. Almost everything we experience can be explained through deep examination of what we emit energetically through our thinking and feelings, though some of it may be on a very deep unconscious level.
In order to attract positive energy, we have to be mindful of the energy we put out. We might be a positive thinker, but we could still be attracting non-beneficial energy and experiences based on our emotional wounds and conditioning. Like attracts like in our universe. If we are wounded, we will attract experiences that cause us to have to deal with those inner wounds. It may even be that we attract the same types of relationships in life, almost as though we feel pulled to repeat the same cycle in different relationships. That is because we have something in our energy that needs healing, clearing and/or reprogramming so that we no longer emit the frequency associated with pain or difficulty.
The first step is to recognize that it is possible to heal and to begin to attract more positive experiences. The second step is recognizing that we may need God’s help in doing that and we may also need the help of other people. Awareness is key to changing how energy flows in our lives and in learning to attract positive experiences. ©July 22, 2014 Nancy Hickman, M.Ed, LLC

This morning in meditation I heard the words, “you know why you are here.” Sometimes we are here in our earthly bodies and we enjoy our experience. At other times, we might feel like we are going through the motions of life without direction or aim. Yet, if we stop and think about it all, we know why we are here. Somewhere in our core, our heart is hearing a call from God to fulfill our purpose. Each and every one of us have a job to complete while we are here but many of us get distracted by life and forget. The chaos around us can pull us off our path until something happens to help us “remember” who we are and what we are about.
Distracting us from our path is easy. We have so many gadgets and so many material goals in life, we can often forget what is really important. If Satan exists, He is there tempting us with “stuff” every moment of our lives. Once we get those “things”, we often look for the bigger and better version. Though we think we are pursing happiness, being distracted takes us further away from our inner peace. How distracted are we? Where do we place our priorities? Do we think of God and what he wants us to do? Do we think of how we can help other people? Do we spend time praying and asking God to bring peace to our world? Do we give back? Is it in our consciousness every day that we have things we can do to help, even if they are small gestures?
Truthfully, we are all here to help and it is apparent that the world really needs it. As a whole, we don’t take very good care of the planet or of each other. There is no shortage of things for us to do to help. We are needed in abundance. When people ask, “What is my purpose?” The answer is to help whatever way we can. It may be a vocation or it just may be our way of life. There isn’t always a defined answer but it can become more defined the more we work toward giving back to God. The more we do, the more the opportunities for helping will open up to us.
Remember, our existence here is about us. It is not about “you”. The more we think of how we can help others, the more we become content with being whoever we are. We begin to develop a new sense of self. We get the benefits of being strongly connected to God and of living a God centered life. We have focus and we know each day is an opportunity to fulfill what we are supposed to do while we are here. We know this already but sometimes we forget. Now is a good time to remember.
Each day ask God to plan your day for you. Ask Him where you can be of help. Then be conscious of the opportunities in front of you. Are you being asked to listen to someone who needs support? Are you being ask to pray for God’s angels to help others? Are you being asked to use your skills to do something greater? Ask and the answers will come. As with most things, it is important to stay in today and do what is put in front of you. The rest will develop naturally as it is intended to be.© May 4, 2014, Nancy Hickman, M.Ed., LLC
