You Are Energy

energyOver time, I have collected a number of quotes. They are excerpts from my books I have written and published. Several of those quotes and their expansions were featured at The Wellness Universe blog. Here is one of them, posted on their site, May 6, 2016:

You Are Energy.
You Have the Undeniable Power to 
Your Life by Your Conscious Behaviour –
Raise Your Energetic Vibrations
by the Way You Conduct Yourself. 

Everything is energy. Your thoughts, words, and acts are energy. The tone of your voice is energy. You, your body, and your feelings are energy. You can elevate your energetic vibrations by elevating your beliefs and thoughts and in how you speak and act.

Beautiful morning.
Blue sky. Green grass.
Happiness, joy.

Sensationalism. Apprehension.
Condemnation. Victimization.
What else? Thoughtlessness.

How did it feel? Did all words evoke the same feelings in you?

When you think, speak, and act,
use the words that are mindful,
that are simple and gentle.

That are full of warmth and don’t feel heavy.
That feel like the hues of bright light that are dewy,
dewy with the promise of a beautiful day.

Words, circumstances, and sights make you feel a certain way. Why? You are a receiver of their energy.

Should you avoid unpleasant events or situations? It is not as much about avoiding the external situations and influences as it is about taking care of your “internal ecosystem”. It is about being mindful of the level and quality of the energy you give off at all times.

Your energetic vibration attracts into your life a match for who and how you are. What circumstances and people do you attract to you? Raise your vibrations and see your reality change.

Happiness Is Not Something Ready Made

img1440034215496“Happiness Is Not Something Ready Made. It Comes From Your Own Actions.”
– Dalai Lama

The above quote inspired me to write an article on happiness. My happiness blog is now hosted by Catherine B. Roy.

Catherine hosts a variety of motivational writers, speakers, coaches, and practitioners who can help you live a life of harmony and success. You can read my blog at Happiness Is not Something Ready Made or continue on this page. Feel free to leave your feedback or comment. 

Choose Happiness Daily

Happiness is a result of your daily choices. Choose happiness. You are a creator; you are the maker of your destiny. That is the law. Your beliefs and thoughts that drive your actions are mirrored in your life. Choose to feel happy with what is at each present moment, thus empowering yourself to let more contentment and happiness flow into your life.

Are You Unhappy with Your Present Situation?

Do not dwell on any unhappy and painful experiences as that is what you will continue to experience. Do not bring your mind toward it. Afford yourself the best thoughts. Accept where you are now and tell yourself that all is being taken care of. Believe that. Even if you cannot see it at the moment, all those are “gifts” and they become a springboard you will take off from toward living an aware, consciously happy life.

Repair That Which Ails You Within, You Are Powerful

If you do not repair all that which ails you within, the damage will be shown without. Regardless of how you feel, with the proper attitudes, you can derive a lot from your life. Change your outlook and viewpoint – it is your power that comes into play and changes your attitudes. Are you unhappy? Renew your thoughts. Renew your actions. Discard the feeling of unhappiness and start fresh. You can move in and out of feelings and moods. Do it. You will be amazed at the power you have. Without changing the circumstances, you will be in another space.

Be Consistent

Be consistent in thinking of positive and happy times. If something pleases you, partake in it. Let the resonance within your heart be your guidance. Consult with your heart; ask, do you like it my heart? Are you sad? Are you joyful? Pleased? Playful? Happy?

You Are Your Own Charge.

You are the concern of yourself. You are the subject of your life. You are your own charge. Do not think that anybody in any way is responsible for your upkeep, your enjoyment, your happiness. Do not expect others to give you that support. Do not expect others to be responsible for you, to look out for you.

Your enthusiasm comes from you. Your exuberance comes from you. Your depression comes from you. Your melodramatics comes from you. It is all about you – no one else needs to feed your physical, emotional and spiritual needs. You are a creator of all that which comes to your life through your care, and you attract those of the same beliefs to you.

Support Yourself

Bring harmony into your life. Bring harmony into your being-ness, into your surroundings. Be pleased with what you have. Make it even prettier. Make it even more interesting. Be pleased with yourself and take time for yourself. Take care of your spirit, mind, and body – consider meditating, going for walks in nature, listening to the soothing music. Please yourself whenever you feel like pleasing yourself – be diligent in the support of yourself.

You Have Began

This is the beginning of your understanding, the beginning of your recognizing the calling of your soul heard through the clamour of the material world. Once you connect, your happiness is always with you. Once you connect, you will always find joy.

Namaste and be well.

The Family Unit or The Family Unity

family 1

I am asking myself how one does maintain an environment of a mutual understanding, and of respect and loving embrace?

I am asking that as right now in my family a situation has evolved – a situation that I believed was on the mend, however, it took on a new turn. As a parent, I want my children to be close to each other, but there are things that can come up in different ways that so easily separate brothers and sisters.

Living From Our Hearts

red rose 2This post has been featured at The Wellness Universe today. You can read it at Today’s Feature Post, and comment there or you can read and comment here, at my site. May you have a glorious day! Helena Kalivoda

Actions that stem purely from the mind are interpretations of reality that is qualified by our opinions. When we rely only on our intellectual impulses, our lives are not as unfurled as if we were first to consult with our hearts.

Living from Our Hearts Is the Most Important Calling of Our Lives

That which is off balance, either lacking or in excess, is the result of our suppressed hearts, our hearts not being a leading force. Bring your heart into all your actions. Put your heart first. Your heart will show you the way.

Examine recent events in your life and determine how much your heart participated. Was it engaged or not? Was it at the forefront or not? Answer honestly and you will discover the way onto the path of self-liberation and unravel the influences of excess or lack of any kind – self-esteem, money, relationships…

Can We Do It?

May we all be winners by consulting our hearts! May we be the ones to start with kindness to ourselves, spreading the kindness to our surroundings. Becoming like a feather, light, but strong to function; smooth, soft, and powerful.

Can we do it? We can, as that is our real nature. See for yourself. How does it feel to be kind? That warm feeling? Oh yes, it is such a warm feeling. All need kindness and love. All yearn for it. All crave it. All need that feeling of belonging. Feeling cocooned by love is the best feeling one can give to oneself.

How Can We Do It?

In all your thoughts and actions, lead with your heart. Your heart never fails you – it is a centre of your intuition, the connector to your Spirit. Your heart’s intelligence is primary. Use it in liaison with and supported by your power of reasoning and intellect.

In regards to your emotions, for instance anger, you can transform intense emotion, subsiding it to a small feeling of discomfort, by using the power of the heart. See for yourself by calming your anger about something that is unavailable to you – send love and kindness from your heart toward the originator of the event that you felt was sprung upon you. Feel your love growing. Once your love reaches the object of your anger, feel the event dissipating. Allow yourself to feel relief and then anger can never be your companion. Use a similar approach with other negative emotions.

Allow Yourself to Observe and Examine Your Feelings

Be aware of your feelings. Examine them for what they are. When you come from your heart, you will modify your feelings. Anger or another negative emotion, is your inability to deal with a presented situation. Your anger is no more than a little bandage for your aching and hurt ego.

So be wise and allow yourself to observe and examine what you feel. Once you understand, you can let go. By applying this approach, you will not be drawn into arguments and fights, verbal or physical. That is the power of love. That is the power of a serene, aware person.

You Have a Seed of All in You

You can be like that any time. You can be like that, as you already have a seed of all in you. Become the director of your emotions and feelings. Then, taking it further, you will change you, and will consciously become the one you have always been – a being of light, living on the planet Earth.

Your Heart vs. Your Mind

Wake Up! Your Heart is Calling.You Are Born with a Fully Open Heart

The heart acts as a connector between your physical and spiritual aspects. You are born with a fully open heart, but your heart may eventually close when it is challenged repeatedly. Your heart, as a pump, will still be well equipped to support the biological life of your body, but the heart that is your divine connection will wait, poised and eager, for you to understand that without a warm, kind and loving heart, you will not be able to fully function at your possible finest in this material world.  [Read more…]

Find Your Inner Calling

Do not always see others as your example, as that can hold you back.

Find your inner calling and follow that.

Follow your heart. Know what draws and invites you. This will put you on the path to freedom from guessing how and what you ought to be. It does not mean your life path will be straightforward; it will have many detours.

Many are looking for their life path and mission. Some believe that it needs to be something big. But the purpose of life is simply to live a joyful, satisfying, and an authentic life, making use of your talents, doing what pleases, satisfies, and fulfils you.

How do you find your inner calling? [Read more…]

What Is Happiness?

DSCN3808 3

I found a rock with a happy face on it. My friend, a geologist, said it should be in a museum. 

Today, as I begin to write this post, I look at my happy rock and feel happy.

But what is happiness? 

Happiness is when we feel light and not heavy. When our soul sings. When we feel thankful for simply being, for our family and friends, for whatever we have and are, thinking of all as precious.

When we are happy with what we have, we cannot be unhappy about that which others would see as missing. We do not see the missing pieces but see all as complete, as whole. [Read more…]

The Road We Travel

road 2I posted a few days ago on Facebook, looking for water kefir grains, and, voilà, my call was answered. Today, I arrived home with a small jar of my prized grains. I drove across the city to get them, and in the process of driving, I unexpectedly gathered several insights:

I prefer to travel by the know-to-me roads. But, alas, something or somebody is not aligned with my expectations. Something is changing the course of my travel. The city is full of detours, roads under construction, protruding manholes, barricades, the traffic signs pointing me in directions I do not want to go.

At the moment of realization that I am not able to follow my route, the parallels started downing on me about my life journey. As the roads with the bumps and  the humps need care and repair, so may certain situations in my life. [Read more…]

More on the Flow


I have been away on vacation for two months. While away, I experienced an ease and flow of me, unencumbered by real or imagined responsibilities calling me to notice them and look after them. Although, I have been home for a couple of weeks, the feelings and impressions remain:

Sun, sand, ocean. Hot air. Cool breeze.
Smiling people, talking with ease.
Swimming, smoothly gliding in the softly caressing me water.
A feeling of expansion, of utter bliss.
No responsibilities.
No time constraints.
No restrictions. No limitations.

Flow from Your Heart

unity heart
Adhere to your heart’s guidance. The heart’s role is to support you not only physically, but also mentally and spiritually. When you make living from your heart your priority, you are in direct connection with the surrounding and your own energies.

How do you know when you are living from your heart? Your heart tells you through your feelings whether or not you are on the right track. It leads you to live by the highest principles of your life: love, respect, compassion, kindness, appreciation, gratitude, an above all, acceptance and non-judgment.

When you flow from your heart you are in harmony and feel the unity with all, as where there is flow, there is no separation. Flow from your heart. You will become aware of all creatures living around you and understand how their lives are intertwined with yours. When there is no separation, you can become a tree’s conscious brother. Your can observe the world through deer’s eyes.

Flow from your heart. Live as a person of heart and soul, who does not see himself as being separate. Flow, feel the unity of all.
