Friday Photo

Today's Friday Photo comes from a beach bluff in Orange County, California - a spot where the sun was warm and the sky and water so blue. Everything felt so beautiful and alive. My last blog talked about the power of the word Namaste, which means honoring the uniqueness and special qualities of someone. There's not many ways to make someone FEEL better than that!

Today's Friday Photo comes from somewhere out in Africa! I saw this quote and just HAD to follow up on last Friday's F.L.Y. While I watched this mother groom and love her little one, I thought about how often we seek this from others, rather than allowing what we already have to come forth from within us. It IS there - practice Genshai and allow yourself to feel your greatness and gifts.........

Today's Friday Photo comes from Pier 39 in San Francisco, CA., famous for the seals that have kicked out the boats and taken over the harbor! These precious guys seemed to strike the perfect pose for my picture and this quote. Loving yourself isn't about being egotistical. It is about appreciating the unique gifts that you have to offer the world. When you take care of yourself, feel good about yourself and are confident in your ability to share these gifts with the rest of the world, well, then you can meaningfully love others because you've learned to F.L.Y..............

Today's Friday Photo comes from Tanzania National Park.  Today I started another hypnosis training course. I was reminded of how scared I was the first time I hypnotized someone. I remember how nervous they were! Today fear never even enters my mind. Whether it's learning a new skill or solving a problem that has been with you for a long time, hardly anything warrants the fear we have.

Today's Friday Photo comes from a late April day in Chanhassen, MN - out my front door where there is supposed to be a sidewalk. I choose to believe and see that it is spring - though Mother Nature has tested my belief with 18 inches of snow. This quote reminds me of the real truth about the familiar "Seeing is believing." - it's backwards! What we believe shapes everything we see. (BTW - when I dug out the snow nearby there were 2 inches of vibrant green budding tulips peaking out!)

Today's Friday Photo comes from Honolulu, Hawaii. You are on your own path, learning lessons and growing in the way that is right for you. You have control only over yourself and your own feelings. You cannot 'fix' the rest of the world, only assist where your help is wanted. Thinking this way develops your own inner peace and you become a role model for others to do the same.

Today's Friday Photo comes from the David Shelnick Elephant Orphanage in Nairobi. This little guy's mom was found butchered and he was left to starve. Saving these babies is no easy feat, yet their rescuers persist against the poachers. Talk about a "can-do" attitude! What have you been telling yourself about what you can and can't do?

Today's Friday Photo comes from a Swedish Archipelago west of Stockholm. The peacefulness of this photograph reflects the inner calm that is possible when you expend energy toward something that holds real purpose for you. Having to do something takes willpower and it weakens with use. Wanting to do something purposeful is easy and joyful. If you are questioning your "Why" on something, perhaps it's time to let that one  sink to the bottom of the lake.......

Today's Friday Photo comes from Broek in Waterland, Netherlands. This is the perfect picture for me this week: I'm ready for spring and hypnosis is all about perspective. All that needs to be said!

Today's Friday Photo comes from Rift Valley, Kenya. I caught this picture of three sleeping elephants that were in a herd of about 35. It didn't last long as the young ones in the group started playing and kicking up the dust. A perfect match with this quote I heard on the radio this morning. Where are you choosing to play today?
