With an open heart & mind, i am moving through changes in my life. I got this in my email today & felt that it was important to share as it pertains to the important transformational work that i am doing on my self and my life as i know it.
I know that i am not the same as i once was. But i am getting better as time goes by. I am opening up to the things that bring me joy and excitement. Sometimes transformation comes in increments, and as those increments add up you see the full picture coming into focus and for that i am Most Grateful. It has been a long haul to get to this point of my recovery.
As i came back into the valley yesterday, it began to hail as it had the night before. This time it was sticking. For an instant as i drove i could see the snow coming down in slow motion. I felt like i was in a snow globe, it was so beautiful. It had kept snowing through the night, and we have 6 inches in the back yard this morning.
As for sewing again, i have been getting back into it. It is one of my favorite things that i have always loved to do. One of the last things that i made my daughter many years ago, was a polar fleece custom robe. She has loved it, and it finally has seen better days so i decide to make her a new one. I went to buy fabric and found two that i just could not decide between the two butterfly fabric's one was brown & gold and the other pink and purple. I bought enough fabric of both colors for robes for two of my daughters.
It took me a while to finished both robes but when they were done they were beautiful and both of the girls loved them. My grandson wants one now too. I found out that my youngest grand daughter did not have one. So i found yummy fabric & made one for her too. What fun to create such wonderful presents that will last for years and be so cuddly warm.
My oldest grand daughter who is 7 going on 8 years old, told me her step sister needed a new robe. Remembering how my grandmother had taught me to crochet, knit and sew, i felt that it was something that i needed to pass on to the next generation coming up. Planting seeds and watching them grow. Some gardens take time to flourish. Mine is really starting to do just that.
So Sabrina and i talked about her sisters favorite colors. Then picked out fabric. We washed & dried it, & i showed her how to make a block pattern. We measured it all to be just 4 inches bigger than her, & voila we had it all cut out.
I showed her how to thread the machine, and let her do it several times & to wind our bobbins & off to the races we went.
She pinned it together & sewed it up like a pro. I am so proud of her. She did a great job. Her sister loved it so much she was dancing around & picked Sabrina up & swirled her around too.
Her father loved it so much he wants one also. We have already went & picked out fabric & we will be making that one this week. I think that i will have her & her mother over, and let them both do it together as a group effort.
I have taught many people to sew over the years and it is good to be able to pass it on to my family.
It is awesome to be able to sew again. I still can not do canvas it takes to much strength to hold that fabric and i just don't have it yet.
Little by little i am getting better. It has been a long haul recovering from being crushed at work back in 2005. I did not think that i would ever be able to sew again. I almost sold my machines. But could not part with them. They have always been a source of comfort to me. I love creating and sewing is a good outlet for that need that is in side of me to create.
It is good to be getting back on track with some of the normal things that i love so much.
Many Blessings with Creative Love & Light, Lisa
Excitement in Transformation
Your thoughts will likely come in a tangle of ideas today. A dynamic mood coupled with new found courage can boost your spirits and give you the strength to move beyond the borders of your comfort zone.
As you consider the barrage of concepts that flood your mind, you may feel more aware and vigorous than ever before. Making the most of this intense energy and mental flexibility can be as easy as seeking out opportunities to expand your horizons through interactions and endeavors that are not a regular part of your existence.
If you open yourself to the possibilities today, you will likely discover that your talents and aptitudes are literally boundless in nature.
As we incorporate new activities and individuals into our lives, we discover that there is much we can learn from the transformational experiences that represent an inherent feature of novelty.
Through innovation, whether on our part or on the part of others, we expand our viewpoints to include aspects of the unfamiliar that awaken our curiosity or energize us in some way.
We are stimulated by change and we thrive in environments which we previously had not experienced because we enjoy the resultant challenges.
Boredom can find no foothold in our personal, or professional lives when we invite variables into our existence that provide us with opportunities to test ourselves, and to expand our horizons.
You will feel dynamic and alive today when you embrace all of life’s changes with an open heart, and mind.
We All Are Golden Potential & When We Can Realize that We carry special gifts inside of our hearts that we are uniquely born with.
That is where Our Imaginations & Our Dreams Live Alive~
The Beauty that we want to see in the world...Can Be Created & Manifested from our Hopes, Dreams, & Visions...Creating & Sharing them out into the world.
I am Rising up to the Challenge & Bringing My Gifts Forward!
Loving You For All You Do Seen & Unseen,

I was pondering on the many things that we learned at Rise this year.
I went to my Idea file folder that was neatly put away. I was lead straight to the poems that I read that lead me to:
Ellie Drake's www.braveheartwomen.com link & this Incredible BraveHeart Community that I love so very much.
You see I was looking for Inspiration & Guidance!
I was at my lowest peak believing I still deserved to live. I was searching for Inspiration & I found it in Ellie & her Incredible Lofty Dream~
I Am Alive & Thriving!!! Largely because of the many souls that reached out to me, helping me to keep believing in who I Am, that I Am Important too.
Ellie Is Encouraging Us to BE CREATE COLLABORATE with our hearts & souls intact.
With Pride we go forward helping our selves & each other to succeed with Ease~
With that said here are the two poems that I read right before I joined Ellie & All You Beautiful Women & Unseen Men that Make up BraveHeart Women's Community's.
God ~verses~ science
God is sitting in Heaven when a scientist says to Him,
"God, we don't need you anymore. Science has finally figured out a way to create life out of nothing - in other words, we can now do what you did in the beginning."
"Oh, is that so? Tell Me." replied God.
"Well," says the scientist, "we can take plain dirt & form it into the likeness of you, & breathe life into it, thus creating man."
"Well, that's very interesting... show Me," says God.
So the scientist bends down to the earth & starts to mold the soil into the shape of a man.
"No, no, no..." interrupts God, "CREATE your own dirt."
*************************************** ***************************** Cookie Thief By: Anonymous A woman was waiting at the airport one night, With several long hours before her flight. She hunted for a book in the airport shop, Bought a bag of cookies and found a place to drop.
She was engrossed in her book, but happened to see, That the man beside her, as bold as could be, Grabbed a cookie or two from the bag between, Which she tried to ignore to avoid a scene
She read, munched cookies, and watched the clock, As the gutsy "cookie thief" diminished her stock She was getting more irritated as the minutes ticked by, Thinking, "If I wasn't so nice, I'd blacken his eye!"
With each cookie she took, he took one too. When only one was left, she wondered what he'd do. with a smile on his face and a nervous laugh, He took the last cookie and broke it in half.
He offered her half, and he ate the other. She snatched it from him and thought, "Oh brother, This guy has some nerve, and he's also so rude, Why, he didn't even show any gratitude!"
She had never known when she had been so galled, And sighed with relief when her flight was called. She gathered her belongings and headed for the gate, Refusing to look at the "thieving ingrate".
She boarded the plane and sank in her seat, Then sought her book, which was almost complete. As she reached in her baggage, she gasped with surprise.
There were her bag of cookies in front of her eyes!
"If mine are here," she moaned with despair. "Then the others were his and he tried to share!" Too late to apologize, she realized with grief, That she was the rude one, the ingrate, the thief!!!!
[What lesson did you derive? In my view, the lessons are: (a) We should not be quick to judge others; (b) We should not jump to conclusions; and (3) We often ignore our own faults first, while preoccupying ourselves with others' faults.]
It's Not that every moment of the day has been Joyous for me.
It is far from it at moments when the phone rings, & it is someone, or something pulling for my attention.
I am human & have emotions that interpersonal interactions trigger, responses that sometimes I would not like to experience.
Yet they keep coming one after another, & when I step back & remember..... I have the Oxyrific Ability to Release those feelings... that don't feel good... or need to be summoned up to the surface...
I can Allow a breathe and HAAAAaaaaa~~~~ Release it.
What ever the feeling was...Is now transformed into a delicious moment of Beautiful Feelings From Within Side my Heart Remembering the Incredible Moments That I spent with all my Braveheart Sisters Practicing & Perfecting Our OXYRIFIC ABILITY TOGETHER with OUR Beautiful Leader, Coach, Mentor, Sister Ellie Drake at Rise 11~11~11 this year.
It really is in how I choose to go throughout my day...In charge of what I say, & what I do from a place of Certainty, & Knowing I can do what I came here to do with Ease... I make it so by following the simple breathing techniques that I have learned I feel Comfortable in my own skin following my heart as it leads me throughout my day.
I want to Thank Everyone who has helped support me. I Am Standing Taller, Stronger, Healthier, Happier, Wiser, & more Loving towards Myself & Others on My path each day!
You are in my Heart of Hearts & Remember your Oxyrific Self & To Breath with Ease & Comfort In Your Life Living From Your Heart Knowing That You Are Magnificently Brilliant & Amazing There is only One You In This World on this Planet with the Gifts that you were Born With Share them with the World & Be more, Create more & Collaborate with those that are on the right path to Greatness for that is Your Birthright~
Sometimes if you are quick you can catch a Fairy with her Wings down & she may even flash you a Smile that will melt your heart~
I had the pleasure of meeting this young woman who has so much passion within for what she does. I just had to share her smiling face with you for she smiles from within her heart & soul so bright it lights up the room.
Here Kendra Bench is painting the final touches on one of the Earth House Builders newest additions to their homestead property's, in the down stairs bathroom. It truly is a Magnificent work of Art.
As One of the Owners & Builders is Hanging the final touch of the hand picked mirror in the freshly painted bathroom, I caught a smile reflecting the Joy that is always in Bonnie's Heart of Hearts~ As you head off or stay in this Holiday Season... No matter where you are going, or being with, or what your beliefs are... may this season bring you Love, Joy & Peace Within Your Heart of Hearts~

We are preparing for the celebrations we create & participate in with others that we care about & love.
My littlest granddaughter Bailey & I decorated our Christmas Tree together with one of my closest friend Shirley. Our Theme was Transformation. We found beautiful Butterfly's that spark & shine so beautifully in the lights that are a glow.

It has been almost 4 full weeks tomorrow, that my Son in Law Andrew let us know that his Father Greg, went in to his Dr. for pains in his chest. All the tests were ran & sure enough they felt he needed surgery.
As we all prepared for the what we knew could happen we prayed for Strength and God speed in his total recovery.
In remembering as far back as I could hearing my own Mother's prayers. She would always put us all in God's hands, as I also have been taught that when we do that, We are Trusting in God to do all that he can to help heal the situation.
That is where we are to stay detached from what is too heavy for us to carry, & place our worries, doubt, & fears in his hands.
Trust is a must for this to work.
When we trust and let go the healing can begin.
My children have given up their home to move in with Andrew's parent to help care for him when he comes home from the hospital.
Bailey who is 3 years old, & so far their youngest child, told my husband & I, "Grandma & Grandpa, we are moving into town so that we can take care of Grandpa Greg."
Then she said that "When he is all better we are moving back home to our home." She said it with calm certainty in her voice. Then she gave us both a hug & said can I go paint now.
She knows that she will get to paint, & play where ever she goes knowing that she is loved & that everything is taken care of.
As an adult I know that life moves on for all of us bringing us through many moments that we do not fully understand.
If we stand in our truth of what we have learned, & the strength that we have developed from trusting, that we have been growing through these past test, & tribulations. We can go forward knowing, that as Guy Finley just yesterday told our Braveheart panel,
"We never meet any moment that Isn't part of our understanding."
and he goes on to say,
"If I am present enough I can understand this moment thoroughly enough, & Transcend the part of me that is afraid...instead of empowering it."
Guy also went on to say
"Rather than have a track record that I can call upon in a moment... I would Rather Realize who, & what I am, can not be made afraid...unless I consent to that!
Then I am not building an Idea of myself...I am Liberating Myself Altogether from an Idea that ultimately turns out to be the source of my fear one way or another."
This segment was truly Divine Intervention~ As I have been walking through many things that would have halted me in the past...now only strengthen me on my path knowing that I am a very strong & courageous woman.
I am learning day to day to stay detached from things that are not mine to be afraid of.
I also love the statement "The feel is real the why is a lie." G. Finley~
Just because I feel afraid in that moment, does not mean that I have to fear it. It is an opportunity for Growth & Change.
As I am moving out of my comfort zone with Ease... I do not have to justify it to my mind. The way out is through the situation.
"Things do happen each day that are valuable lessons in Life. In realizing that, nothing can take what is authentically valuable to me away, from my learning to be a strong & courageous human being living this human experience."
I also love what Guy said in this statement,
"I am an Authentic Fearless Human being & Life is Giving me a Gift here."
I am grateful for these segments that are always right here in the moment that I have needed them. To reinforce the life lessons, that I know to be true for me.
When I face the things that I have been afraid of in the past, I know that the only way is to walk through the new ones, with the calm certainty of knowing what is real & what is not.
Thank you Ellie & Guy, Lauren, Alissa & Stacey for such an Enlightening & Encouraging Braveheart TV moments of Empowerment.
If you are being triggered by the fears in your past & missed this segment,
You owe it to yourself to let go of past moments that keep you prisoner in a cycle of resistance to letting go of things that no longer serve you in your life.
A special Thank you for those who have been holding us all in your prayers, as we have been finding the many joyful moments in our lives to be grateful for.
As for Grandpa Greg he is doing much better now after Two open heart surgery's. He is breathing on his own, & will be coming home soon to enjoy the rest of his life, & the Holiday Season that is here and now, the Present that we have been gifted to share with one another.
