Laughter Is A Positive, Social Interaction…

Laughter Is A Positive, Social Interaction… This weekend I’m visiting my family, and like any other typical family, tensions rise when you all try to get together and share every meal. I’m here to say that the formula is by day three were all ready to run back to our own lives and our familiar ways we are used to. Of course we all have lots of love for each other, but um……..yeah, we are creatures of habit and your cramping my style. Well, we met for dinner at my Brother Mike’s house, because we never learn, and hope for the best and we were hungry. And this is what lead to my post, Laughter Is A Positive, Social Interaction… Because it truly is…. We got on a roll and couldn’t stop laughing for what seemed like most of the evening. All I can say is, it was exactly what we all needed. An amazing release, a beautiful outpour of smiles and bonding through humor. We were in the moment, present and sharing the contagious emotional reaction to the silliest context. It lightened everyones mood and filled the room with lighthearted energy. Everything that seemed tense earlier fell away and I once again regained faith in my beautiful family. Until next time, when we have that false sense that everything will go smooth when we all get together…….and forget about my day three theory, we will walk away from this trip remembering this evening in my brother’s kitchen, and how much fun it is to all get together as a family. Love you all, Gretta A quote….. “I am enough...
Are You Calling In The Prosperity You Deserve?…

Are You Calling In The Prosperity You Deserve?…

Are You Calling In The Prosperity You Deserve?… We feel rather guilty to ask the universe for money, it makes some people feel non-appreciative of what they already have. Theres a definite sense that what we ask from the universe should be world peace and curing hunger. Well, of course that is what we all want, but can we do anything about world peace and people going hungry if we don’t have money? So then I ask you….  Are You Calling In The Prosperity You Deserve?… because only from that standpoint of having, can you truly give. Rethink the guilt trip and ask away! One of my favorite books is by Harv Eker, “Secrets Of The Millionaire Mind” an absolute game changer for me and friends Ive suggested it to. It was when I read that book that I finally dropped the idea that it was wrong to want, ask for and therefore manifest a flow of money into my life. I learned that the reason we don’t have everything we want is because we think we don’t deserve it, or that we have to work so hard to achieve it. Both completely untrue. Do away with these notions and self limiting thoughts that hold you back from all the universe wants to give you. Open to receive all the wealth imaginable. Write down your list of what you will do with it, include everything that will make you live the life you want. Write down what charities are right for you……you will have it and you will create a beautiful flow of energy that will generate joy to...
It’s The Simple Things In Life That Make Us Happy

It’s The Simple Things In Life That Make Us Happy

It’s The Simple Things In Life That Make Us Happy When I was young and going out at night to nightclubs with my friends, my Dad would always say “I don’t know what your looking for out there…..theres nothing out there!” And I never understood what he really meant by that, but as the years roll by, I discover just how correct he was. It’s The Simple Things In Life That Make Us Happy was my fathers message, his words were words of wisdom that I would discover later and now repeat to my own children. No matter how many designer handbags I stuffed my closet with, no matter how many great plans with friends or beautiful homes in a beautiful neighborhood I could achieve could truly create the happiness that comes from recognizing the simple splendor of the sun on your face. A walk in the grass barefoot, the smell of a pine tree in the crisp fall air. True happiness is feeling joy when you are walking over crunchy fall leaves, opening all your windows after it rains to smell the clean earthy air. Losing all thought as you watch the billowing white clouds on a beautiful blue sky, the sound of children uncontrollably laughing. I try to simplify my life and have more of the moments like these that really make life feel like an amazing journey. I no longer look outside of myself for the happiness that I know is available to me in the most simple forms, gifts from the Universe that I have complete gratitude for. Thanks Dad, I think of you as...

Sending Loved Ones Waves Of Positive Energy

Sending Loved Ones Waves Of Positive Energy Don’t let any negative energy pull you down. Allow only positive energy to flow through you and around you. When things feel anxious and stressful, release all the darkness to the universe by only thinking positive. When you know that a loved one is in need of prayers and positive energy…….send it their way with your high thoughts of them. Send blessings through your thoughts that you wish them to have, the thoughts and blessings hold energy that will flow to them and lift their spirits. Worries slow down what we manifest so instead of worrying foe someone, send them love and understanding, compassion and divine guidance. Visualize the outcomes of your family members and friends that may need a boost from the universe, keep that vision in your head and throughout your day affirm ……I send my loved one the blessings of positive thoughts and prayers, through my love for them and not my fear of any negative outcomes. Gretta Quotes from Albert Einstein: “Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.” ~Albert Einstein “Try not to be a man of success, but rather a man of values.” ~Albert Einstein “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” ~Albert Einstein “Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.” ~Albert Einstein “The important thing is to not stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.” ~Albert Einstein This was the best dinner ever from Crossroads Kitchen. My favorite vegan restaurant in LA. It’s not an egg…..its a yellow tomato milanaise....
Don’t Postpone Your Life…..Start Living Now

Don’t Postpone Your Life…..Start Living Now

Don’t Postpone Your Life…..Start Living Now Most of our precious time is spent running around getting the stuff on our checklist checked off. Running in the details of the mundane can leave you feeling unaccomplished and nowhere. Don’t Postpone Your Life…..Start Living Now is about kickstarting your true calling whatever that might be. Experience a life that is both satisfying and fun, fulfilling and personally created by you. What it takes is the triggering off of a crucial decision on your part. The decision that TODAY is that day that you’ve spoke about and thought about for years. Announce it! Talk about it! Breathe it! Drink it! Eat it! Be it!!! “I declare that today I am starting that novel.” “I declare that today I am taking my first hike.” “I declare that today marks the first day of my workout schedule, my first cooking class, a return to my painting schedule.” “The volunteer work I have been putting off.” It takes pushing yourself. It takes changing up the norm and pushing through to a new energy field of being more productive. Complacency will not leave you feeling anything short of bored and disappointed, so what do you have to lose? What is your highest excitement? The thing that keeps coming up while you contemplate that will be what you should go for. You can feel it in your heart, when it truly resonates with you. Serving others might be just what the doctor ordered, as when you do the best version of you is emerging. And by the way the happiest you. Have gratitude for what you have...
