Kindness, Gratitude & Other Super Powers

Kindness, Gratitude & Other Super Powers

Lately I’ve been discovering my super powers.  It’s not what you think.  In letting go of the super perfectionism that was a main part of my life, I’ve opened up new doors of greater joy and possibility.

super powersYou see I was making the status quo important, and resenting it.  Kind of pitiful.  After taking a look at the gift I truly be, things are shifting.  Caring and kindness are super powers .  This reality tell you they are a wrongness.  Since working with the tools and processes of Access Conscoiusness(tm), I know these gfits of being are a strongness, not a wrongness.  I do not make myself wrong just because others couldn’t receive that growing up.

Tapping into your Super Powers by the Power of Asking.

Have you heard of “Ask & Ye Shall Receive?”  You can ask questions and then follow your awareness.  I like to ask this question:  “What contribution can I be to humanity today?”  Then I pay attention to the signals that match the energy of the question I am given.  For example,  I was on a walk.  A neighbor gal I am acquainted with has an outstanding yard of roses.  It outshines every other singular looking townhouse on my route.  I had been meaning to let her know I’m grateful for her beautiful yard.  It’s that yearning for love and connection, a feather touch whisper that asks me to reach outs to to others.  I could have let the moment pass me by.  Instead, I asked a question, “I wonder what is possible here.”  A few moments later I got the impression to text her to let her know.  She responded about how that text made her day.  It can be that easy.

Have you been asking for kindness to be in your world?  Kindness with yourself?  Kindness with others?  Whether it’s the feather touch guiding you to get a new 3-5 setting shower head to nurture your body as a busy new mom, say thank you to the pilot getting you to your destination, take your dad out to lunch, or bring flowers to caring masseuse in your community, ask ‘what is possible here?’  Enjoying the elevated joy that acting on these impressions brings is beyond articulating.

The Magic of Happiness and Joy as Super Powers

I recently had the divine experience of receiving a flutter of energy that has been distant in my life. I sensed it is the energy we call happiness. I am aware that, since I was a teenager, I was working so hard in self improvement, that I had the facade of happiness, because I had to prove that all the work I’d put in was indeed working.  At the core of this was a deep feeling of being wrong. I was defending against this feeling by performing all the self improvement work!  I am so grateful for this awareness and taste of a different possibility of energy showing up now.   I ask what I can be and do to expand this energy in my world now.

Something I know with every fibre of my being is this:  Our HAPPINESS can change the world.  That juicy, orgasmic, joyful energy of being is healing and uplifting.  I am willing to have others judge me and be annoyed at me as the girl who ‘vomits rainbows and sunshine.’  And there is no force or ‘have to’ energy to being happier than I’ve never considered.  As Gary Douglas, the founder of Access has said, “what if happiness is just a choice?”

What if you could bust down the doors of this reality?  What if you could change the world with these super powers?


Acts of Kindness Towards Self & Others

Acts of Kindness Towards Others

There is a difference between “look at me, I’m Kind!” kindness” and authentic, being
moved by the spirit kindness.  And when you choose the later, it grows on itself.  My mind has been popping with ways to be kind lately, and it is actually helping me receive even more joy and openness to connect with others.  Sure, it can be a stretch.  Isn’t it nice to know that kindness benefits the giver as much as the receiver?

 When the spirit says, “Move Now, buy that birthday gift for that facebook friend!”  Do it.  There may be a bigger reason than you can perceive in the moment.  Now I don’t have any grand stories to prove it to you…I do know that kindness expands on itself and will bless you 10 fold for each act you do when you are inspired, so don’t hesitate.

Acts of Kindness to yourself

And isn’t it time to be kind to yourself?  Has it been a while since you can remember being kind with money to you?  Is that even a foreign concept?  Well it was for me too.  I’ve recently chosen to unplug the stopper I’d put on enjoying having the things that would elevate me.  Yeah, I probably even went overboard.  But I bought myself some things I’d been desiring but denying myself for ever, like one of the paintings I show in the video above.  I also bought several books on my wish list.  And that’s just for starters!  In what ways are you kind to you?  Thank yourself for that!  In what ways could you choose kindness for yourself?

Kindness Tip

Now, it’s actually FUN to get a hit on something you know another would receive, and then act on it, pronto.  Not because of any expectations or hopes, but just because you can.

Now I want you to ask yourself “I wonder what kindness to enrich my own and other’s lives I can show today?”  Than when something comes to mind, do it.  Let me know what happens.

From Grace Engel:  The more I am kind to me…the harder it becomes 2 judge, 2 hate, 2 be unkind to another.
The more I see me…the more I see YOU…how beautiful YOU are!
What if we could spread more kindness, on the planet, by first being kind to YOU?
Tomorrow, sharing our experiences.. of the Being Kind 2 YOU journey, with the beautiful Victoria Dortzbach!
We documented our experiences, some of them required us stepping outside our comfort zones…but the human connections we formed were astounding, and the ripple effect was phenomenal!
My target for this journey was to connect with others in a way I had never done, or experienced… by first being kind 2 me.
My target was to connect with others from a space of genuine kindness, from a space of vulnerability, and from a space of non-judgment…by first creating this space for me.
My target was to connect with me so I could connect with YOU.
