The Power of a DANDELION!

Do you remember making a wish or gathering a bouquet of flowers?

What is Your Perspective?

Change your Mind, Change your Life.
To See Differently.  — Attitudinal Healing

We can see so much of life differently from what we were taught or have seen.  Below, listen to just a minute of what Jerry and Diane (founders of Attitudinal Healing) have to say:

Fear, Change and LOVE

We have the choice of how we want to see the world.  The good news is that we can learn to let go of our negative perceptions / perspectives and choose to see our lives, people, situations from a fear base to a love base.  In our culture we look at changing / shifting our perspective as “wishy-washy”, as a weakness.  Change can be so challenging for most of us…yet it really is a powerful strength!  To change one’s  perspective of an “Ex” relationship, painful disease, or disrespectful person, for examples, from hurt and anger to acceptance and forgiveness is a huge step…it’s a MIRACLE;  FROM FEAR TO LOVE*.

In this Awesome Attitude blog we are studying a discipline that helps us move from fear to hope / love.  This is a good thing.  It helps us see the positive in all things.  I support you and acknowledge you for you are studying something that helps to keep you happier, smiling, probably healthier and makes you less stressful.

           FEAR     –       (change perception to)     –   LOVE / HOPE       =       MIRACLE

To Do

Here is a very short list of FEAR Base and LOVE Base.  Making the CHOICE between which list is the way we want to live is what we need to do!  Do you think that any annoyance gives you the right to act out?  It takes courage to let go of that perceived right.  Even if you have been taught, or the Fear base has been your habit, at any point in life you can CHOOSE to SEE Situations DIFFERENTLY and live a life with more peace of mind…which we all really want.  We are looking for something to give us more inner peace…even if we are not at the level of totally choosing the Love Base yet.

*FEAR Base                            LOVE Base

  • Anger                                    > Kindness
  • Disrespect                            >Respect
  • Separation / Alone              >Unity / Community
  • Conflict                                  >Harmony
  • Criticism                                >Acceptance
  • Weeds                                    >Flowers
  • Frowns                                  >Smiles

The first step is to be aware of which base your Attitude and actions are in.
The second step is to have the intention to choose to change.
The third step is to pay attention and choose the LOVE base action as often as you can, over and over again until you peel back the layers of fear to the “natural” you, remembering who you really are!

I think it takes courage for us to face our challenges as spiritual people and to shift our perceptions.  I think it takes great courage for us to let go of our grievances and choose differently; to choose LOVE!


Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love
–Mother Teresa

Love is the answer no matter the question!Heart__________________________________________________

butterful-yellow  About the Author:

In the summer of 2018 I started “raising” caterpillars and Butterflies in my backyard (see “Backyard” Blog) and so I learned about the *BUTTERFLY EFFECT: The idea that one butterfly could eventually have a far-reaching ripple effect; the idea that small causes may have large effects in general.

I want my Blog and any place I am, to be a place where I try my best to bring peace, love and smiles; where I have my little positive influence on any person’s attitude and that the world will be a better place.  I used to think if I could help just one person, that would be wonderful. Through these past 25+ years I have been in the presence of so many amazing people to give and receive from.  I am humbled, honored and grateful.
