Locked in, Locked out

so I lost my keys and forgot them somewhere else this morning and am wondering what is going on.

Do not lock yourself into anything.  You are free, stop thinking that you are locked in and cannot go freely about your business.

You are not locked out, you are welcome here.

Free to roam

off the sidelines, Senator Kristen Gillebrand

Run for office?

Snafu at bank this morning. Got it worked out. But I over reacted. Actually, no I didn’t. they did not disclose all my options and inconvenienced me and then wouldn’t listen to my side of the story. So I called customer service last night and the guy listened. I still plan on filling out their survey.

Conflict resolution.

Not a victim. I am a child of God with a choice. (Steve Arterburn is quoted as saying that).

Do you remember the Star Wars movies and the great wisdom that came through the little character, Yoda?  One of his great wisdom teachings has stayed with me a long time.

Luke asks the wise one, “How do I know the right decision to make?  Among all the many decisions, how do I know the one that will be with the force?”

Yoda looks at him and says, “You will know through peace and calm. You will know you’re on the right track when you’re not feeling frantic, when you’re not feeling anxious, when you’re not struggling with different parts of yourself. When you get to the right answer and the right decision that is yours, there will be a peace and calm that will come from within you and radiate from you.”

As we make decisions today, may we look for that peace and calm, and turn to it as our compass and as our comfort.

Here’s To Peace and Calm,


willingness is the key

Eagle’s Nest

The mother eagle teaches her little ones to fly by making their nest so uncomfortable that they are forced to leave it and commit themselves to the unknown world of air outside. And just so does our God to us.
— Hannah Whitall Smith

Sometimes, the pressure comes from within us. Sometimes, it’s external. That job folds. The relationship stops working. Alcohol and drugs stop working. What am I going to do?

Oh, I see. God’s teaching me to fly, again.

Thank you, God, for pushing me out of the nest.

found on the ground

I slept in this morning and  went walking. I have health insurance now and so I tracked it in the system that insurance has and I get reward points.

I then went to a meeting and saw someone from the past who looks great and I realized what goes around comes around and that right now I am okay and I can give to others. So that means try to be nice to the widow.  What I am trying to say is that god transcends time and can go to the past where we were hurt and traumatized and heal us.

Prayers For Healing Emotional Wounds

Lord, the pain is so deep that I hardly know how to pray. Please examine my inner being and reveal to me any areas of unresolved emotional pain, resentment or unforgiveness. Touch me I pray with Your love, and begin the precious healing process within, that only You can accomplish.

Flood me with Your healing and wholeness, and if there are areas in my heart that need to be confessed.. or for which I need to repent, I pray that You would bring them to the forefront of my mind and set me free from the bondage of this deep and traumatised hurt.

I know that the Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit and I simply want to rest in Your love and allow Your streams of healing and strength to flood my heart my mind, my body and my soul.

Thank You that You are the divine Physician and the God who heals all our pain. Keep me under the shadow of Your wing and to You be all praise and glory for ever,



Also, God is in the future, so the energy and good we put out now, will return to us.  This is good too about removing trauma from the brain and mind.

Getting rid of the toxins in the system.

I found these on the ground as I went walking:

Head in the clouds, feet on the ground, that is where are fellow travelers are.

Don’t placate to what others think you should be doing or bend to their expectations. I am really trying to get over other people’s opinions.  trying not to judge.

Our schools need a conflict resolution specialist and someone who listens to the disenfranchised.  I may not be that person; I find many times, I detach and lack compassion. I  can give, but not overgive to the point of resentment. that may be selfish but I think it’s healthy. Also, I need help starting my online business; I can’t do it by myself.

VSA light and indicator came on. I freaked out.  But followed directions and now the light is off.

Without VSA, your car will have normal braking and cornering ability, but it will not have VSA traction and stability enhancement. This switch is under the left vent. Press it to turn the Vehicle Stability Assist system on and off. When VSA is off, theVSA Activation Indicator light comes on as a reminder.

just passing through

Billy Graham died. He’s home now. and HIS grace will lead me home.

Graham is once quoted as saying we are just passing through.

So I was supposed to do something but it didn’t work out, but that’s okay, because I was able to make a job interview and it went well.  The day worked out. I made a job interview.

State of flow, appreciation and try not to give energy to sickness or negativity.

making time to do what you enjoy: playing the harp, writing, breathing and looking at the sky.


Ask, and believe you will receive if it’s in your’s and everyone’s best.

There is a specific science for asking for and getting what you want and need in life. Here are five tips to help you get started:

  1. Ask as though you expect to get it. Make your request with confidence and a full expectation that your wish will be granted.
  2. Assume you can. Don’t start with the assumption that you can’t get what you want. Adopt the attitude that all you need to get what you want is to speak up and say that you want it.
  3. Ask someone who can give it to you. If you want a yes, there’s no sense asking a person who is incapable of fulfilling your request. Qualify the person you are talking to before asking.
  4. Be specific. Vague requests produce vague results. Be clear about exactly what you want to ensure you get it. Don’t ask for a raise – ask for $5,000 more a year.
  5. Ask repeatedly. Persistence is a key principle of success. Some people will say no to your requests. Your job is to keep asking until you get a yes.

nuggets and cops

just a few nuggets of wisdom that I received in my inbox this morning and i want to share with you:

the first one is from Mary Morrisey:

Years ago, one of my teachers said four lines that have stayed with me forever.

“Your choices shape your life. You are the artist. Your life is the canvas. Intention is your paintbrush.”

So today as we pick up that which will authorize our life today — that which will create the color, fabric, hue and shape of our lives this day — let us remember that the point of power is in our intention. Intention is our paintbrush.

Here’s To The Artist,

The second one is from Mind Movies:
A wise friend of mine once said:

“Whatever’s missing is what you’re not giving”.

His name is Derek Rydall.

He’s just released a fascinating book on abundance –

And how to create more of it by drawing on ‘unseen assets’ inside you and around you.

One of the most eye-opening ideas in the book is that giving is the key to receiving greater abundance.

More specifically:

  1. Giving To: Share your time, talent, and treasure
  2. Giving Away: Give up what you no longer need/use
  3. Giving Up: Release habits, criticism, complaints, judgment
  4. Giving In: Let go of resistance, give in to what’s emerging
  5. Forgiving: Free yourself and others from emotional debt
  6. Giving to Yourself: Give to you what you seek from others
  7. Giving Thanks: Appreciate all you have

I encourage you to look at each area of your life (health, wealth, career, relationships, spirituality, etc.) and notice what’s missing from each.

Ask yourself – is it love, approval, respect, validation?

Or if it’s something material, ask what it symbolizes for you, what it stands for. For example, money might equal safety, security, power, or worth.

Then actively give these to yourself each day, by asking:

“What would it look like to totally respect/love/approve of myself?” 

Now act on it by following this guidance and attract more abundance starting today ;-

I called the police yesterday on that guy who has been blowing kisses to me in the parking lot. He is married. Why is he flirting with me? What in me is sending out those vibes. Perhaps i need to throw love and validation and practice company manners on my landlady and stop being so friendly and act more professionally.

Played harp this morning: Bird on a wire, Gymnopedie, Greensleeves, and when I get home, I intend to play Fairest Lord Jesus and this part of Divertissement Francaise that I have been practicing.

woof, warp, bang

The essential foundation or base of any structure or organization; from weaving, in which the warp — the threads that run lengthwise — and the woof — the threads that run across — make up the fabric: “TheConstitution and the Declaration of Independence are the warp and woofof the American nation.”  http://www.dictionary.com/browse/warp-and-woof

Gun laws. not thoughts and prayers!

May we help more than we hurt, may we seek to understand more than be understood and may we love more than we judge.

Guided, Provided and Saved (GPS)

Have to believe I am being divinely guided and that if I keep praying and asking God to open the right doors and close the ones that are not for me and to keep me safe and sane.

Provided, I worked and got paid and am still looking at how to start an online coaching and conflict resolution business.

feel loved, secure and provided for first rather than seeking it on the outside.

God is the One who supplies our needs. Our jobs are not our source—God is. So when jobs and investments disappear, we don’t have to feel hopeless because God is not limited. He can provide for us through other means, in ways we may not have imagined or can figure out ahead of time.

Matthew 6:26 reassures us that if God takes care of the birds, we can believe He is going to provide for us, too. Do you believe God can take care of you?

Prayer Starter: God, thank You for being a faithful, trustworthy source and providing all I need. No matter what happens, I rely on You and only You to meet my needs.

We all want resolution and peace and coaching and to have a great life doing what we love: either for a company or as a side hustle that brings in profitability.


7-10 clients paying $1000 for the month= 7,000 to 10,000 a month. Class, integrity, content and outstanding customer service. so people feel safe doing business with me. Give more that you pay for. What can I give, not just about making money.  Satisfaction, knowing I did it for the right reasons.


I talk a good game, but actually doing this is is the struggle.  I’ve got to want to go through with it.

Dr. Henry Cloud:

When we think of confrontation, it brings up mixed feelings and emotions for us. In fact, our minds actually try to protect us from confrontation when it becomes uncomfortable, and we avoid it. However, it’s a necessary part of any relationship that helps us to move forward in our lives.

Sometimes we’re not prepared for confrontation. When you attempt to speak to someone about a problem or an issue, for whatever reason, you go in to break up and you come out engaged! And you’re no closer to resolving the issue. Actually, you’re probably further from it. So, what happened?

Let’s take a look at the mental blocks and the vulnerabilities that keep us from confronting someone.

  • You beat around the bush too much and are not direct as you want to be.
  • You become too angry and argumentative instead of remaining calm and clear.
  • You feel sorry for the other person and lighten up too much.
  • You’re too anxious.
  • You break down and are overwhelmed with the pain of it all.
  • You know exactly what limits you intend to set, and you give in more than you wanted.
  • You allow yourself to get sidetracked into arguments or having to justify what you think or want.
  • You fear the consequences of the confrontation (rejection, disapproval, conflict) so much that it gets in the way of your dealing with the problem.
  • You have some other personal vulnerability that gets in the way.

Most people have made at least one attempt to have the conversation they’ve been avoiding, but something proves to be too much to overcome. So they don’t know what to do. They become stuck, or, worse, get discouraged about ever making things better.

We’re going to look more at that later this week, but now I’ll to turn it over to you guys. In 100 words or less, I want you to answer this: When you confronted someone to resolve a conflict, how did it work in your favor? Send your responses to stories@drcloudteam.com with the subject line “Confrontation,” and as usual, we’ll edit names and stories to maintain your privacy.

Looking forward to hearing from you, as always!
