Old school selfie on back to school night

“Hello my name is Ava Blu. What I like about myself is riding horses, knitting, swimming and everybody gives me compliments on my eyes.”

 A reminder that good karma is always around the bend.
Even on the rainiest of days

Keep the good vibes coming, share your good karma moment in the comments for all of us to see. :)

Some inspiration for the weekend

Do you need a little pick me up or perhaps some inspiration for the weekend? I sure do!

Here are a few of the phrases that have been bouncing around in my head that I just had to write down and hang up on my wall.

Dreams are FREE. I think sometimes we forget that or think we don’t have the right to dream really big for what we really want.

If you don’t ask, you don’t receive. You have to speak up for yourself. Know what what you want and ask for it, don’t just settle. How are other’s suppose to know what you’re thinking if you don’t tell them? Most people aren’t mind readers.

Slow and steady wins the race. Do one thing everyday toward your dreams. It can be the littest thing as long as it is moving you in the right direction.

…and for an extra jolt of inspiration today just watch this!! It had me in tears.

Listen while you work

A friend of mine recently turned me on to The Hay House, and boy was I was surprised to find that I was actually familiar with quite a few of their authors and contributors!

So for the past couple of weeks I’ve been running through and listening to all of these amazing motivational speakers who talked at the World Summit. I have yet to go through all 100 talks, but so far a few of my favorites are:

Gabby Bernstein! I actually have 2 of her books that have been sitting on my night stand for months now. I have yet to fully commit to them since they involve “homework”. I think I’m going to put together a small support group to go through them together with me.  And wouldn’t you know it I just recently got a inbox reminder message for this event! I think it might be the universe reaching out to me to tell me to do this!

Marianne Williamson – I was introduced to her through Gabby and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed her talk. I now have a few of her books on order at my local library and sitting in my amazon basket :)

Kris Carr! Love this girl! She has such an incredibly inspiring story and speaks my language.I’m now determined to try out her green juice and green smoothie!! And I have to say that I’m total a junk food junkie and sugar addict. Have been since I was little. Nutrition is the one area in my life that I am slowly starting to learn about and change for the better.

Sonia Choquette- I can’t believe I have only just heard of her. I totally vibed with this lady! I love philosophy of using your 6th sense and intuition to guide you. My goodness I remember each and every time I haven’t followed my intution and boy was I sorry. Sonia’s talk really resonated with me.

Noah St. John - He spoke about affirmations (or as he call them Afformations) But it was much more than that. It was about turning your affirmation in to a a positive charged question? Fooling your mind to stop resisting and start actually believing what you’re saying. All I can say is wow! Why haven’t I tried this before? You can bet I’ll be forming some afformations questions of my own!

Still Crushing on Karma

Can I just tell you I’m still totally Crushing on Karma! I mean how could I not be :) Here are 20 more ways to indulge yourself in the arms of Karma.

  1. Explore- Spend some time in an unfamiliar neighborhood you might just find the perfect coffee shop.
  2. Visit a friends church-  And keep an open mind.
  3. Say it Out Loud! – Instead of just thinking it use your voice. Speak up and be heard.
  4. Truly Listen – When you ask someone a question listen to their response. Don’t worry about what you are going to say next. Truly Listen, they actually might have something interesting to say.
  5. Believe in Something! – Be it miracles, magic or unicorns, everyone needs to have something to believe in.
  6. Let yesterday and tomorrow go – You are HERE right now!
  7. Don’t waste anything.- Be it resources, time or knowledge.
  8. Say “I Love You” to someone you love-  Those 3 words never wear out and there’s no such thing as too much love!
  9. Result-based thinking isn’t the only way – Do something without knowing or caring about the results.
  10. Teach - Share your knowledge with a friend without expecting something in return.
  11. Relax – Sometime you have to put the check-list away and just chill.
  12. It’s never too late - Try out a hobby or activity that you thought you might be too old for.
  13. Accept Criticism with Grace- Take a step back. Take a deep breath. Don’t react, listen instead. Learn from what you can and leave the rest on the floor. Rise above and say Thank You.
  14. When in doubt just be Nice! - Being nice is always better than being mean.
  15. Stop Blaming Yourself – You have the power to change your day just by changing your mind.
  16. Be Still- find a park, sit and close your eyes. 
  17. Make the Time- Make the time to be with your friends and family. Make the time to stop and help someone else. Make time for the little things that matter.
  18. Share a Meal- Cook dinner for a busy family member or friend. When we share a meal it not only provides nourishment for our bodies but also our souls.
  19. Say Hello! - Introduce yourself to that person you always see around town.
  20. Give the gift of reading - Donate those old books collecting dust on your shelf to your Local Library.
