Our Circle of Influence 

How are you influenced?
What is the result of what you read and see and who you hear and hang out with?
What have you taken into your mind and body since coming into this world?
What you believe and how you treat yourself are based on what you have heard and felt and seen.

We are all more sensitive that we know.
We can endure tough times and difficult relationships.
However we grow and blossom to our fullest only with the greatest of love, respect and positive regard.
It is our response ability to give to others the Goodness we want to receive.
It’s our salvation to forgive and heal the past by clearing away the shadows and lingering doubts.
It is our job to undo what is not true of God and the Goodness and Love in which we are created.
Consequently, life is about remembering the positive, affirmative and appreciation we have experienced.
Our bodies are collectors of energies and we must clear them of residual pain and sorry, neglect and fear.
Our psyches attract and attach to what we believe is true about us.
So we have the work of clearing our negative thoughts and limiting beliefs.

Inside each one of us is the influence of our mother and father (or those who played those parts.)
Our mother represents our self image and esteem based on what she thought about us and herself.
Our father represents our confidence in the world and what he thought about himself and about us.
To undo the faulty thinking and projections of our parents onto us, we must forgive their beliefs.

Forgiveness is the initial world I invite most of my clients and students to do to set themselves free.
Our healing requires that we stop projecting our pain and negativity onto others.
Our healing demands that we cease criticizing, blaming, feeling pity or resentment.
Our healing invites us to be the ones to clear the pain and lack of love and limitation for all.

What we live with influences our thinking, our feelings and our behavior.
For parents to blame their children and loved ones for behaving a certain way is futile and foolish.
Parents (People) must correct their own unconscious projection onto their children and others.
Who we live with influences our feelings, our reactions and our thoughts.
For loved ones to blame others for treating us with disrespect or lack of love is silly.
It is we ourselves who must choose to change our thoughts, behaviors and emotional responses.

The more we love and respect ourselves, the more we love and respect others.
The more we love and respect ourselves, the more others love and respect us.
The more we love and respect ourselves, the more others love and respect themselves.
The more we love and respect ourselves, the more others love and respect others.
And thus, we build a family, a community and a world of love and respect.

Are you willing to be the One who clears the world of what is not?
Are you willing to be the One who changes you life?
Are you willing to be the One who demonstrates the Love within?
Are you willing to be the One to change the world you see?

Beginning anew each day with the Goodness and Love I Am,
Betty Lue
