365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 190: Trust Them To Be OK


What do you do when someone you care about is struggling? Maybe they are in the middle of a health crisis or maybe they have an emotional, financial or career challenge.

What do you actually do when you see their suffering? You want to make it all better and take their pain away, right? Especially if this person is your spouse, child, sibling, parent or your best friend, you worry for them day and night and want to fix it for them and have things return to how they were before it all started.

If this sounds familiar, you are not alone. Most people worry, worry, worry and try to make it all better.

But here’s the thing: the more you worry about them the more you weaken them and energetically zap their life force.

Many years ago I learned that the best way to stand by someone when they are facing a challenge is to TRUST that they have what it takes to overcome it; to stand by them with love and offer them a helping hand when they ask for it; to not take on their journey and diminish their strength by worrying.

In my third post of this blog, entitled Ioana’s Journey I shared how I came to this life changing understanding.

When you worry, your energetic message to your loved one is that you do not trust them to find their way, that you do not have confidence in their abilities to raise up to their own challenges and create powerful shifts and transformations in their own lives.

I want you to know that they do have what it takes to overcome everything.

We all have what it takes.




365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 189: Coherence… Let’s Do It Together!


The Institute of HeartMath is an internationally recognized nonprofit research and education organization dedicated to helping people reduce stress, self-regulate emotions and build energy and resilience for healthy, happy lives. HeartMath tools, technology and training teach people to rely on the intelligence of their hearts in concert with their minds at home, school, work and play.

Everything inside us and around us is part of the same energetic mix.

Our individual words, thoughts and actions influence everything around us, regardless of us being aware of this fact or not. Through our day to day actions we can create resonance or dissonance within ourselves, with each other, with Earth and our life on it.

I choose to create resonance and choose it again every day. Many years back I decided that I wanted to teach others about it too.

In order to create resonance in our world, we must first learn about our own internal coherence.

Dr. Rollin McCraty, Institute of HeartMath Research Director  says:

“Coherence is the state when the heart, mind and emotions are in energetic alignment and cooperation. It is a state that builds resiliency – personal energy is accumulated, not wasted – leaving more energy to manifest intentions and harmonious outcomes.”

Come on board!

Choose internal coherence and create resonance all around you.

Are you in?



365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 188: What Do You Talk About?


Sound is a vibration that propagates through air, water and other mediums. I believe that you will agree with this simple statement.

Words propagate through air, through our bodies and through the bodies of the people we speak them to.

What we focus on is what we talk about the most. If we focus on the negative side of things, then our choice of words will reflect that tendency.

If we focus on the positive aspects of our lives or circumstances, on the positive qualities of the people we come in contact with every day, we will choose different words.

Our thoughts have the power to lift us up or bring us down. So do our words.

Choose your thoughts with care and choose your words with care.

Allow your thoughts and your words to enhance your day to day experience and contribute in a positive and uplifting manner to the people you come in contact with.

As you learn to do so, you will start to notice powerful shifts taking place in your life. There will be more kindness, more compassion and more understanding in all your relationship. There will be more ease and flow in all your endeavors, projects and decisions.

What you talk about every day is where your focus goes.

What do you choose?



365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 187: Let’s Talk About Your Words

RUCSANDRA MITREAToday’s post is an invitation to word mindfulness.

What kind of words do you choose in your everyday conversations with your family, friends and coworkers?

Our words have a vibrational frequency, the same way our thoughts have a vibrational frequency and have the power to expand and enhance our energy or to diminish it.

So pay attention to your words: are they darts of negative energy directed towards yourself or others? Do you blurt out hurtful words when you feel hurt? Do you criticize, minimize and belittle yourself and others?

Hurtful words can indeed hurt the people you speak them to, but most importantly, THEY HURT YOU!

As you vibrate at the same level of energy as your unkind thoughts and words, your body’s magnetic field gets weakened and diminished.

Have you noticed that after a fight in which you lashed out through your words in order to make your point, you were left exhausted and depleated?

Your negative words dimished YOU!

As I always say, start by becoming aware. Pay attention for a few days of what words you choose and how you feel when you speak them.
