Creative Projects

I went to this festival last year and I was extremely inspired by all of the creativity around me. There was music, healing arts, flow arts, paintings, glass-blowing. All types of personal creativity. Some people were dressed in costumes and dancing in their own unique way. I will never forget that place and I intend to gather with that community again in October. I have been exploring different creative projects myself. One being this blog Conquer Your Emotions. I transform my experiences into creative writing including metaphors based on my understanding of those experiences and also others perspectives that I have been exposed to. That is why I really enjoy reading different personal development books, because it is like I am peeling back layers of myself through looking at a personal experience or feeling in a different way. This process of shifting my focus on a different perspective allows me to create my own interpretation of whatever it is that is happening. I deeply want to bring the energy I have inside myself to life. I have tons of ideas and projects pop into my mind daily. I have written many of them down. If you are reading this and ever want to bring a creative idea to life through writing, craft, cooking, etc, let me know. I am open to helping other with their creative goals.

I have been making jewelry as Simply Serene Stones on Etsy. You can visit my shop here. https://www.etsy.com/shop/SimplySereneStones?ref=hdr_shop_menu

I am excited to see where this path leads me. I am setting aside all money made for something I am not sure of yet.  I want to also inspire others to support each other by spreading awareness about one another’s talents/crafts. I think we are already creating communities for self-sufficiently and towards a healthier more sustainable future for the coming generations.

I have also planted a garden this year. I am very new to growing my own food, but I figured why not plant a few things and learn along the way. I have planted arugula, spinach, swiss chard, cucumbers, strawberries, and bell peppers. I still have to plant my sunflower seeds. I may pick up a few more things in the coming weeks.

I also want to write a book about some of my deeply personal traumas and struggles to inspire others and help them heal. I feel like it is my duty to give back the same energy I have received myself. Some topics would include: codependency, attachments, addictions, relationships cycles, fear of abandonment, coping with anxiety. I know I am not in a position to write this book yet, because I am still going through some areas of my life, but this book will hopefully be manifested within the next (5) years.

I have set time aside to do things such as coloring, drawing, and watching movies. It has been tough for me to do something for fun lately. I have been so focused on a goal, achievement, becoming, etc. I have to remember to take time to let things flow. That is where music has seriously helped me let loose. I have secret dance sessions in my room a couple times a week. I let all the energy flow out of me and capture it through moving my body.

There are a couple other things I am wanting to work on, but only time will allow me to do all of these things.

Patience. Determination. and i will just keep going after the life of my dreams, because what else is there to do? Fall in line with society standards?

No way. I’m breaking out of that system, one day at a time & one step at a time all while thinking about a future where people won’t have to deal with the stresses we are facing today.

All Thought Is Creative- The Powers Of The Mind

THIS TEXT/VIDEO IS NOT MY ORIGINAL THOUGHTS. I AM WRITING TEXT FROM THE VIDEO BELOW AND INCLUDING MY OPINION AND THOUGHTS ON IT. BE AWARE. I DO NOT WISH TO CLAIM ANY OF THE INFORMATION AS MY OWN. THANKS ❤

I listened to this video like last week I believe. I can’t seem to get the message out of my head, because it is in my opinion accurate and very important. I have been on a journey to find love, peace, and happiness within myself as well as become a positive person. Upon discovering this video, I feel as if I have a greater chance becoming that person, which is a HUGE relief. I just wanted to come back to my notes and share them with the world with hopes that someone else could be has fortunate as I am to have been exposed to this information.

I feel as if the material in this video, I already had floating in my head for sometime. It really helps make those thoughts more believable when hearing someone else speak them. I personally listened to this video twice and plan to read the book that it was based on. I can’t express how much this video has changed my life! Please take some time to listen to it and really understand the message that the speaker is trying to get across. He does such a wonderful job, it is entertaining and quite comical. I think you guys will enjoy this.

Below I have included notes that stood out to me as I listened to this video. 

QUICK NOTES FROM VIDEO:

  • LET GO OF OLD CONCEPTS AND BELIEFS
  • BECOME AWARE OF HOW YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS WORKS
  • BEGINNING OF ALL WISDOM IS REALIZING HOW MUCH YOU DON’T KNOW.
  • YOUR MIND IS IN CONSTANT MOTION AND CONSTANTLY THINKING-ALWAYS ACTIVE
  • YOUR MIND LIMITS YOU, DECEIVES YOU, FOOLS YOU
  • YOUR MIND IS THE GREAT TRICKSTER
  • THINK ABOUT HOW MANY TIMES YOU HAVE WORRIED AND NOTHING HAS HAPPENED
  • YOUR MIND WILL TAKE YOUR GREATEST FEAR AND PROJECT IT ON YOU.
  • OUR MINDS TELL US THAT THINGS ARE GOING TO HAPPEN TO US, WHICH DON’T ALWAYS HAPPEN.
  • WE CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT IT IS OUR OWN MIND TELL US- OUR MIND LIES TO US.
  • WE BEGIN TO DOUBT OUR DOUBTS!
  • A LOT OF USELESS THOUGHTS ARE GOING ON ( FEAR, WORRY, ANXIETY, NEGATIVITY)
  • WE ARE LIVING OUR LIVES THROUGH A MECHANISM THAT LIES TO US- WE HAVE LOST CONTROL-
  • WE GAIN CONTROL WHEN WE AWAKEN.

ELIMINATE NEGATIVES:

  • YOU ARE NOT YOUR MIND
  • KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DESTRUCTIVE AND CONSTRUCTIVE THOUGHTS.

THREE STEPS TO ELIMINATING NEGATIVES:

  1. CUT IT OFF- INSERT NEW THOUGHT TO REPLACE NEGATIVE THOUGHT.
  2. LABEL IT- WHAT IS HAPPENING? IT IS ONLY A NEGATIVE THOUGHT. (DON’T GET CAUGHT UP IN IT)
  3. EXAGGERATE IT – INTO RIDICULOUSNESS –
  4. COUNTERACT THE NEGATIVE WITH THE EXACT OPPOSITE

**NEGATIVES ONLY HAVE POWER OVER YOU IF YOU REACT TO THEM!!**

  • NEGATIVES ARE PSYCHO LEECHES WHOM GET POWER FROM YOU.
  • IF YOU SEIZE TO REACT= NO POWER TO NEGATIVITY
  • ITS YOU VS YOUR MIND!!!
  • BEING AWARE OF THE TRICKSTER-YOUR MIND-
  • YOUR MIND DOESN’T KNOW!

**YOU CAN’T ALWAYS BELIEVE WHAT YOUR OWN MIND TELLS YOU BECAUSE YOUR MIND IS THE GREAT TRICKSTER!**

LAWS OF THE UNIVERSE

  • EVERYTHING IS MADE OF VIBRATIONS OF ENERGY
  • THOUGHTS, EMOTIONS, ETC CONTAIN ENERGY
  • YOU HAVE THE POWER TO MANIFEST.

*EVERYTHING IN OUR LIFE IS MADE UP OF TWO WORLDS*

  • INNER WORLD: THOUGHTS, REACTIONS,BELIEFS
  • OUTER WORLD: CIRCUMSTANCES, SITUATIONS
  • UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INNER AND OUTER
  • WE GET OVERWHELMED WITH THE OUTER WORLD
  • WHAT HAPPENS IN OUTER RUNS AROUND IN INNER, BECOMES CONSCIOUSNESS= NO PERSONAL POWER
  • MOVE PAST REACTION INTO PERSONAL POWER
  • LEARN TO UNDERSTAND THE TWO WORLDS
  • EACH WORLD HAS ITS OWN REALITY
  • HAPPINESS/FEAR DOESN’T EXIST IN OUTER WORLD

*LAW OF CAUSE AND EFFECT

  • EVERYTHING IN OUR UNIVERSE IS GOVERNED BY LAWS
  • YOU ARE THE CAUSE OF THE EVERYTHING HAPPENS TO YOU
  • YOU ARE THE CAUSE OF WHAT IS GOING ON IN YOUR LIFE!
  • EVERY SINGLE EXPERIENCE, ACTIONS, THOUGHT= RESULT IN ENERGY AND VIBRATION- CREATES OUR REALITY-
  • LIFE RESPONDS TO YOU BASED ON YOUR ENERGY AND VIBRATIONS,
  • WE ATTRACT EXPERIENCES TO US.
  • WE PRETEND OUR LIFE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH US.
  • YOUR LIFE IS A REFLECTION OF YOU!!!
