Percolate Peace

Good Morning from Maine!  #Gratitude 

Welcome to Percolate Daily.

 I hope you follow along with me each day, perhaps even consider using a journal to write your thoughts as we go.  I also would love your comments and I’m sure others would appreciate them too. In my book, Percolate – Let Your Best Self Filter Through, today and for the next several days, we are following along with Percolate Point 9 – Percolate Peace.

Yesterday we talked about Peace meaning many things to people and Peace within starting with acceptance.

Centered peace comes from knowing that you belong and have purpose and meaning in your life and that you exist for a reason.

Peace rests within your heart.  When your heart speaks, it’s very important to tune in and listen.  It’s your own internal guidance system.

JOURNAL

Reflect on this.  What does this mean to you and your life?

Good Morning from Maine!  #Gratitude 

Welcome to Percolate Daily.

 I hope you follow along with me each day, perhaps even consider using a journal to write your thoughts as we go.  I also would love your comments and I’m sure others would appreciate them too.

Today is the official day after the release of my new Hay House book, Percolate – Let Your Best Self Filter Through.  In yesterday’s post, I chatted about how the book has an overall theme of gratitude and then shared some of the messages of the book with listeners on these radio shows:

The Best People We Know

VividLife – The Radiance Factor

Thank you for all the love, support and well wishes for Percolate!

There was a very special moment yesterday when my husband and four children gave me flowers and a card to celebrate the release of the book.  Our oldest son came home from college for the day. We had a day of hugs and smiles, celebration and love.

Love is Everywhere.

Apply Love.

In a conversation about change, love can sometimes be lost in the shuffle.

Apply Love.

In a conversation about change, fear, and doubt…. naysayers may gather.

Apply Love.

When someone around you uses terms like “I can’t” or “That will never happen” or anything negative to you that is a limiting belief…

Apply Love and see the endless possibilities and positive energy. 

Hear Yes.  Hear Love.

Learn to Practice Love, Gratitude and Acceptance for yourself and others around you.

Love.

JOURNAL

Do you love yourself?

Do you value yourself?

What does love mean to you?

When you apply love to a different viewpoint or challenge, do you notice a different outcome?

Ask Why?

Share your knowledge of Love, unlimited reach, possibilities and positive energy.

Are you thinking with your heart?

Are you thinking as a naysayer, with limiting beliefs who blocks change?

What are you percolating to yourself and others around you?

Percolate

Be Loving

Good Morning from Maine!  #Gratitude 

Welcome to Percolate Daily.

 I hope you follow along with me each day, perhaps even consider using a journal to write your thoughts as we go.  I also would love your comments and I’m sure others would appreciate them too. Today is the official release of my new Hay House book, Percolate – Let Your Best Self Filter Through. The book has an overall theme of gratitude, however many who follow me in social media see  my daily gratitude message, “Good Morning from Maine! #Gratitude”.

 Percolate-Gratitude

When we practice Percolating Gratitude, we make choices with our behavior and thinking from moment to moment.

You have a choice to find gratitude and live in gratitude with your attitude, thoughts, actions and all.

One behavior that blocks gratitude is comparing yourself to others or to what others have.

Comparing-is-Gratitude-Blocker-graphic

I use a technique I affectionately call PERCOLATE flipping.  (Yes, flipping.)

This is where we turn negative thoughts & behaviors  into positive, gratitude rich thoughts & behaviors.

Turn negative chatter around.  Flip it and find the positive.

JOURNAL Exercise 1

Write down 5 negative things you catch yourself saying to yourself or out loud.  

Leave room under each statement for two positive statements. Find the gratitude and write down two positive statements.

Example: 

Elizabeth:  “I really wish I didn’t have food allergies.  I hate having food allergies.”

Positive statement 1: I love myself with food allergies.  Yes, the are difficult to manage, but I am grateful for my life and my daily experiences. I am grateful I have survived several allergic reactions.

Positive statement 2: I am grateful for all the wonderful people I have met and lives I have helped save as a result of sharing my story about food allergies. Even though they are difficult to live with, I practice healthy daily food allergy management and live my best life.

Example:

Elizabeth: “Rita’s new car is better than mine. I need a new car.”

Positive statement 1: I love my car. well, mini-van.  The thing is the ultimate-french-fry mobile.  It may have some mileage and some baseball dents and I am incredibly thankful that I have a car to drive, that runs, that has raised & supported my family and provides some comic relief at moments.

Positive statement 2: It’s hard to think about trading our van in as our kids are all teens now and their personalities are still all over the windows where they sit (or sat). One window has stickers from the Disney movie Cars arranged on it.

JOURNAL Exercise 2

Find an even quieter space and read what you have written.  Read it several times.  

Pick one statement and the two positive statements and put them into motion in your life.

You might hang this on your bathroom mirror, carry your journal and reminder, put it in your phone or meditate.

Consider sharing this with someone and ask if they have any additional POSITIVE things to add.

What is your level of gratitude for yourself? Others? The world around you?

Percolate

Be Grateful.

Love, Elizabeth

Good Morning from Maine!  #Percolate

This is the first entry for Percolate Daily.  I hope you follow along with me each day, perhaps even consider using a journal to write your thoughts as we go.  I also welcome your comments and I’m sure others would appreciate them too. In my book, Percolate – Let Your Best Self Filter Through, today, we are following along with Point 1: Allow for Change to Brew.

  PERCOLATE Acceptance.

Percolate-Acceptance-image

When we practice Percolating Acceptance, we make a choice how we view what we can and can’t change. Self-acceptance starts to increase awareness on all levels and, in my opinion, fosters gratitude and love.

JOURNAL

Do you accept yourself?

How do you practice moment-by-moment and mindful self-acceptance?

What bothers you about yourself?

What can you change?

What are a few things you can’t change?

What is your level of gratitude for yourself? Others? The world around you?

Percolate

Be Accepting.

Love, Elizabeth
