Heart Whisper Gratitude Challenge Day 13: Letting Go of Fear NOW

heart-whisper-gratitude-challenge-day-13
Today I release all fear
The coulds, the shoulds,the woulds.
The what if this or maybe that?
I release everything
that I have allowed to block me.
I let go and release all
that stops me being present.
This frees me…
I hear my heart whisper
Thank you!

Welcome to Day 13 of The Heart Whisper Gratitude Challenge

“Fear doesn’t exist anywhere except in your mind.  It’s difficult to follow your heart, but it’s a tragedy to let the lies of fear stop you.” – Brene Brown

(If you’re only just catching up with us today go here first to find out what you need to do to get ready or just start at the day you have arrived at. The previous days are listed at the bottom of each post in PINK)

Let Go Of Fear ….NOW

‘The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.’ Franklin D. Roosevelt 

This morning when I was scanning my facebook wall I stopped at the image below, acronyms for fear that a friend had shared. Interesting I thought as I was used to used the more familiar acronym:False Evidence Appearing Real.  Two different meanings for the word that I see as being the opposite of love. will you run or rise?Fear has 2 meanings

As Marianne Williamson says: “Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.”

And her famous words: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure….”

Then it was time to draw the card for the day and when The Let Go of Fear now appeared I felt I had been guided for today’s theme:  Letting go of FEAR. I know we released fear on day 7 and it arose again on Day 11. Looks like I have some more fear to face than I was aware of. Time for some journaling I think.

Fear is one of the things that holds me back and I need to spend more than one day releasing. Let’s make this a day we really let go of the control that often is so strong we can’t see it. So the more grateful we are the easier if becomes to step away from fear and into love.

When we are grateful, we let go of the fear. We open our hearts, allow the love and abundance to flow – Suzie Cheel

Let go of the fear My Prayer: Archangel Michael, please keep me safe and deserving of your guidance. Thank you for clearing me of heavy, toxic, or ego-based thoughts or feelings.

The Message: Archangel Michael says that fear is the only thing thing interfering with your happiness and your plans. he wants to show you how to release any fear, worry or dread so you can feel safe and secure. This card indicates that you are ready to let go of control issues and trust that everything ultimately works out for the best.

Possible specific meanings:

  • You are going in the right direction
  • You deserve all that is good. ( just as we all do)
  • Allow yourself to receive love, support and abundance.
  • You are loveable

Today’s Activities:  

  1. Write down five things you are grateful for today- focus on the love that you are and see yourself stepping into a ring of light, shining and cutting all cords of fear, release then into the universe and feel free.
  2. Count your blessings one by one as you started to on Day 6. 
  3. Use Hoʻoponopono if you need to relax,center yourself  or to be forgiving.

My 5:

  • I am grateful that I am guided daily by the whispers of my heart and I am following them fearlessly
  • I am grateful for my heat pad that soothes my back. (note to self- Greek Dancing might not have been your best move !)
  • I am grateful for the inspiration I am getting each day to share with you here on the blog
  • I am grateful for my love of cooking and the yummy stir fry dinner we had tonight, that Des said was special
  • I feel so blessed each day that  Des surrounds me with so much love and support. One lucky girl.

As Susan Jeffers says : Feel the FEAR and do it anyway!

Day 8: Heart Whisper Gratitude Challenge: Abundance

Day 8: Heart Whisper Gratitude Challenge: Abundance

HeartWhisperDay8

Welcome to Day 8 of The Heart Whisper Gratitude Challenge: It’s raining abundance day

(If you’re only just catching up with us today go here first to find out what you need to do to get ready or just start at the day you have arrived at. The previous days are listed at the bottom of each post in PINK)

When I drew today’s guidance from the angels card out came one of my favorites Shower of Abundance. I thought that was wonderful timing as we move from fear in to abundance and into week two of the challenge. Although the card’s focus is on finance, you can apply the message to any area of your life that you want more abundance in.

Shower of Abundance

Message from the card: “To heal your financial situation, first give us your worries concerning money. We will guide you in order to show you how to create and accept abundance. As we work together, you financial situation will heal as fast as you allow.”

This card maybe is a message that your prayers have been heard and answered. The more you can listen to and follow your heart whispers right now the quicker your finance/ health/ relationships will grow. Follow any guidance you receive as this cold be an answer to your prayers. Abundance can take many forms, be open. Maybe a new opportunity, more time, you may even get clarity on a situation that has had you blocked, maybe even stopped you.

Today’s Activity:  Is to first write down five things you are grateful for today and then count your blessings one by one as you started to on Day 6. Then I have found a beautiful Abundance prayer/meditation ( Just 3 minutes) to delight you- well it did that for me and help you get ready to embrace more abundance into your life through being grateful.

“Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend… when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present — love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure — the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience Heaven on earth.”  –Sarah Ban Breathnach

Until tomorrow keep touching your gratitude rock and counting your blessings and seeing the abundance that you already have.

Thank you  for joining the challenge.  Don’t forget to invite your friends!  The more energy we create, the more fun we will have and the more love and abundance we will bring to the our lives and the world

Day 7: Heart Whisper Gratitude Challenge Releasing Fear

Day 7: Heart Whisper Gratitude Challenge Releasing Fear

heart Whisper Gratitude Challenge Day 7

When we are grateful, we let go of the fear. We open our hearts, allow the love and abundance to flow – Suzie Cheel

Welcome to Day 7 of The Heart Whisper Gratitude Challenge:

(If you’re only just catching up with us today go here first to find out what you need to do to get ready or just start at the day you have arrived at. The previous days are listed at the bottom of each post in PINK)

Today’s guidance from the angels is  Blessings in Disguise appearing today : 

blessings in disguise

 What appears to be a problem is actually part of your answered prayer. You’ll understand the reasons behind your present situation as everything resolves. Trust in heaven’s protection and infinite wisdom to answer your prayer in the best way.”

“The angels sent you this card to help you recognize the blessing in the midst of an apparent challenge. What you’ve appeared to have lost needed to fall away, and will be replaced with something better, Have no fear for your future, but continue praying and following the guidance that comes to you through repetitive feelings,thoughts, visions, and words.”

One door closes, another one opens

The “how” is up to god with respect to the best way to answer prayers

Release the need to control and predict the outcome to this situation

Trust

Today have no fear for the future 

Today’s Activity:  Is to first write down five things you are grateful for today and then count your blessings one by one as you did yesterday. Then take a minute and use the short Yellow Chakra Meditation to release any fears that maybe surfacing. Our yellow chakra determines what we believe about ourselves, it is where we develop our self esteem and become empowered. This is also where our fear factor develops and the one area where so often one can get stopped.

When you are Grateful fear disappears and abundance appears- Anthony Robbins

Until tomorrow keep touching your gratitude rock and counting your blessings and release any fears..

Thank you  for joining the challenge.  Don’t forget to invite your friends!  The more energy we create, the more fun we will have and the more love and abundance we will bring to the our lives and the world

Releasing What’s Holding You Back

Releasing What’s Holding You Back

Your Weekly Heart Whisper

I asked yesterday in Your Weekly Heart Whisper: Do you find that holding on to “stuff”stops you? Maybe even holds you back?

I know on Saturday as I was clearing a mountain of paper and many folders full of courses I felt my heart whisper it’s time to let go.  I felt good as I filled our paper recycling bin many times. I had courses that maybe one day I would revisit, not very likely. Piles of notes that one day might be useful. Yes I am a bit of a hoarder.

I then looked at all my textile art work that I have painted and stitched over many years. I have been holding on for a variety of reasons.

I like to have my art around, problem now I have started painting on paper and canvas, is that I have more shelves full of my art. You can only hang so many pieces on walls. I was also fearful in some ways of letting go of my “treasures”.  I have a new range of small textiles pieces  I keep talking about making.  I see that my holding on has been holding me back.

Watch the video  and see if it triggers any holding onto patterns for you.


So you can see that I have decided to release the scarves, next will be the quilts, yes the ones in the video  background and some others waiting for new walls to grace. Watch this space for more surprises.

I know that wrapping up the scarves and sending them to new owners gives me joy while creating space for me to allow the new to come in.

What I have discovered is that in not letting go we can limit ourselves and fear thinking can railroad us. The “What if syndrome”that can bring with it lack thinking. That stops the abundance flowing  as does lack thinking.  There is a healing process that happens when we let go too.

As I release each scarf I can feel joy in remembering the pleasure that making these scarves gave me and like the heart whisper paintings , the scarf designs came from my heart. I started each one with white fabric and then layered colors, like painting on water color paper. I was never able to copy myself so each piece is unique, you will never see yourself coming around the corner.

BE Courageous ~ Making Change, Making A Difference

BE Courageous ~ Making Change, Making A Difference

be-courageous

It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.  ~ e.e. cummings

BEach Inspiration: BE Courageous 

To be courageous is something that we do to overcomes fear, create a lifestyle change, something we see often see others doing and we are inspired by. Being courageous helps us creates change and make a difference. We often equate courage with bravery and as Nelson Mandela says

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.

Have you been faced with an event in your life where you have been courageous? On my recent healing journey

I know now I have been courageous, I have made many lifestyle changes: my alkaline eating, my quantum healing when I made the choice to stop taking drugs and focus on healing myself. the interviews I did  and videos I made in spite of  my “moon face” appearance, and more.

We all have a choice to change and when we step into the change we often let go of fear and we do make a difference firstly to our own life and so often that creates a ripple effect that touches others and makes a difference.

Recently Dona Donato  from Giggling Gorilla Productions  for contacted me to be one of their expert resources and shared the vision she and Michael Kobert had to bring Living The Courage Vibe  Documentary to the world.

The story stirred my soul. The trailer introduces you to the White family who is committed to living a courageous life. They made a choice to  get off what they saw as living on auto pilot, give up everything for an epic adventure to Find it all!  They believe that living courageously, living dreams and being of service to others – can transform lives!

Allison White the 11 year old special needs daughter whose life began in a Russian orphanage says: be brave and face your fears!

Living the Courage Vibe is an inspirational documentary and epic global journey from the suburbs of Portland to the dunes of the mighty Sahara.  In search of the true meaning of life we follow the bold adventures of an extraordinary family.  Presenting powerful interviews from contemporary thought leaders – this film uncovers secrets that awaken and inspire us to come alive to our dreams and transform ourselves and our communities.

BEach Inspirations: Be Bold

BEach Inspirations: Be Bold

be-bold

Listen to your heart and be bold enough to follow it instead of doing what other people want you to do-Joyce Meyer

When I think of being bold my mother’s words come back to me : “You are so brazen”! Brazen means to be bold and without shame. At the time I was fearless and found it easy to be bold and didn’t think about the shame.

What Changed?

Somewhere along the way I developed what I call the FUD FACTOR

This is not a good look or feel and I doubted my own brilliance, got fearful  and I did begin to get feelings of shame. As I write this, memories of really putting myself out there, stepping out of my comfort zone, and just being me return. Wow so what happened?

Des tells me I got tired and bored. I was running my Suzie Cheel Handpainted textile business and the selling climate changed. I started to look outside myself more and more. I got dazzled by so called “gurus”  I stopped listening to and  following my heart. Following my heart had taken me from safe secure employment as a trainer of Child Care Workers into the Textile Art world. I started spending money with various gurus and looking back today, I know that these”gurus” were not authentic and definitely not coming from their hearts.

I began to see so many people who “I thought” were starring and seemed very successful in what they were doing. Not always so I discovered when I have talked with them, they suffered from being in what I call FUD factor land.

fud-fsctor

Yesterday I feel like I broke free of the FUD Factor by being bold:  I have a fear and do doubt myself in sending out emails asking for help, I also have resisted promoting my friends products as well as my own in solo emails.  Yesterday I sent out an email titled Expect a Miracle to my whole list.

This is one crazy idea- yes expect a miracle!-I was doing QiGong this morning when this idea to ask you all for help flashed across my mind. I have resisted sending out an email just asking you to vote for my book Lucky To Be Alive My Year of Living Positively that will help thousands of people who have life threatening illnesses.
I am a messenger for change and this is the story of how I changed my life and recovered from a near-death experience.

Today is the last day- actually last 6 hours of voting time left and I have 1038 votes.
Now for the craziness- if 700 of you voted and clicked the 5 stars that would make 3500 extra votes and that might just get me across the winning line. Unlikely I know but a girl can wish 🙂

 “Freedom lies in being bold.”  -Robert Frost 

I discovered after I had sent out this email, that I had shared Wayne Dyer’s inspirational image on my facebook page yesterday,synchronicity at work.

i-expect-miracles

Yes miracles do happen and are very freeing and exciting.  One of my fellow Law Of Attraction fellow facilitator Cynthia Manner shared my email on our private group and then Judy Garey took up the challenge inspired by my email. It was exciting and when the contest closed 5 hours later  my book had moved to 6th place with 1193 votes, I then imagined what would have happened if I have chosen to let go of my FUD factor and asked for help from a wider audience earlier! Today I am smiling. I will also receive a prize.

This was a wake up call for me and the best thing was that I didn’t beat up on Suzie. I was excited I had broken though my resistance to sending out emails, yes I do send out my weekly Heart Whisper and that feels great. I do it with  joy as I am giving and the feedback I get is amazing.  I know it is uplifting and inspiring.  Yesterday I also received many email responses to my email.- I love it, keep them coming 🙂 So I found a way by being me, to share and ask in a manner I feel comfortable with.

What was stopping me?

I hate, yes hate long emails, sales letters etc and always feel I have to learn a new way of being. I now know that is not me. Well I knew all along I just lost faith in me and what I was doing and that held me back big time.

 Des said when I shared the email with him : “ Ah the real Suzie is back, you have written from your heart” . You can expect more heart felt messages from me. 

I feet great, I had a wonderful few hours meeting new people and know that when the time comes to market my book I will have a ready and willing team to support me. To top it off I was asked to be one of 21 experts in an up coming tele-summit and be interviewed for a positive change radio show. Yes I will be sending emails out to let you know 🙂 without fear and worry!

Thank you

Be Bold

Being bold
Allows fear to fall away
Uncertainty fades
Doubt dwindles
Your brilliance begins to shine
Feelings of joy and happiness return
Change comes as you make the choice
To listen to you heart.

What will you do to be bold today?

All my love
Namaste,

Suzie Cheel

What We Hold On To Blocks Us. What We Release Frees Us!

What We Hold On To Blocks Us. What We Release Frees Us!

frees-us

It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is powerAlan Cohen

Alex Blackwell from The Bridegmaker has inspired today’s Heart Whisper and this post. Alex’s post  A Simple Path to Cutting Yourself Free touched a chord in me. The opening quote reminded my that holding on can stop one and I thought initially of an instance where I have done this recently. So I decided to take action.

“Free yourself from the burden of  feeling the need to hold on to anything.” ~ Steve Maraboli

The first area (yes there is more than one!) that surfaced for me and that I needed to unblock or cut free  was on the financial front. I had been putting off completing the last year’s accounts. I knew I had put my head in the sand where the accounts and budgeting were concerned. Some wishing and hoping that magically a miracle would take care of everything. No that didn’t happen, the magic fairy with the wand did not appear nor has the lotto win. 🙂

I was recording all our expenses monthly, adding them all up and then doing no analysis or monthly reconciliation. I have been meaning to revise the budget too! I know I have been using my kidney failure, the osteoporosis , my crush fractures and healing journey as the excuse.  My being out of action has limited the cash flow and put strain on the budget. I have still been using my challenges as an excuse.. So there was avoidance at play BIG TIME. This avoidance is costing me in other areas of my life too I have realized as I have been writing this blog post. Back to the accounts 🙂

Well I did take action and cut that block, the accounts are done, at the accountants and I discovered that we had done better than I had thought – that was happy dance time. I then took my journal down to the river and the words for this week’s Heart Whisper just flowed.

weekly Heart Whisper #26

Now I have the accounts unblocked and a plan in place to keep this financial area flowing, I am now looking at other areas that I see myself holding onto  and the first one that came to mind was my book Lucky To Be Alive: My Year of Living Positively which got put on the shelf  during the Love Challenge and I need your help: I have  entered a contest to win a book promotion package Best Seller and Social Media Services and Coaching this would be a real gift to me:  Plus 1st Prize includes our VIP Best Seller Launch and Social Media Promotions for your book. Just what I need to get my message and my book out to the world so it can help others with life threatening and/or near-death experiences regain their health and the joy in their life.  

I would love your vote. just click on the book cover below and click the 5 ☆☆☆☆☆ when you get to the voting page.

Lucky-to-be-alive

The reason I have included my book is because it does costs me in so many ways. Last week my friend Heather from The Happiness Garden told me that I still wasn’t seeing my story as being huge. She reminded me that Des, my previous local doctor and Heather herself have been trying to impress on me for at least the past year that my story is extraordinary. I continually underestimated what I been through, so part of me was questioning whether I really had a story to tell. Like a little voice saying ” what’s the big deal?”. Yet when I tell people about it they make it clear that this is a story that needs to shared and it is a big deal. Here is what Dana Dunn said:

My dear sweet friend Suzie has an amazing story to share with the world. Please join me in voting for her! This is a beautiful story of love and healing! I’ve always called her my Suzie Sunshine because she shines so brightly! Love ya girl!

Vote Here, thank you

Is there an area of you life you could make some cuts or unblock that would free you?

 

namaste, be love

One Word For 2013: Did You Choose From Your Head Or Your Heart?

One Word For 2013: Did You Choose From Your Head Or Your Heart?

2013-words

Are You Satisfied You Choose The Right Word For You?

If so great! Or you maybe like me and have had second thoughts already. My word for 2013 was to be FOCUS and yes you can see it sitting up in the top right-hand corner of the card I made for the New Year.  I have shared it in a couple of facebook groups, with my friends and this morning I shared it in a comment on Mari Smith’s blog post New Year 2013: One-Word Theme of ABUNDANCE and then I was on Nicoles Cody’s post What’s Your Power Word for 2013.

I was sharing my blog reading and my thought on my word FOCUS with Des as we walked on the beach this morning and he stopped me and said this doesn’t seem to be coming from your heart. We had established that I relate focus to work and that wasn’t my preferred mode of being. I want joy.

Des said: Focus doesn’t expand your vision or expand your sense of what’s possible, it closes you in. It is only speaking to your puritan mind that feels it need to be responsible, not speaking to your heart that wants to be extraordinary. It’s a brain word, Focus. You transmute what other people call work into  joyful activity and this becomes a business through alchemy and amazing transmutation.

I then tossed around the following words shine (playing a bigger game), bold and the word that keeps calling me is abundance: financial abundance, time abundance, health abundance, creative abundance and community abundance. My heart knows what I want, you can see it has a prime position on the card above. My head chose focus because I have a tendency to be distracted by BSOS- Bright Shiny Object Syndrome and I know to shine in 2013 I do need to be focused. Now I am thinking Focus though for me is a FUD  based word, (fear, uncertainty and doubt). As Des said:

Focus without passion is useless, it might get you through a day or a week, not through a year

I need a heart word, a word that sets me free to soar. Abundance is that word, it is empowering, it makes heart sing, I can focus on it , meditate on it , write and paint about it and  I can reflect upon it in my daily life. I can now use my word, abundance to plan my year both personally and professionally for 2013. It feels good. Feeling good, having high vibes helps us become deliberate attractors and we then attract our desires.

abundanceWhat is your word or phrase for 2013? 

Will this word transform your life?

Does it make your heart sing?

Please share your word and your thoughts in the comments.

Happy New Year: Dream Big

With gratitude and in abundance always
Namaste

Are You Following Your Heart’s Desire Or Does Fear Stop You?

hearts-desire

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. – H. P. Lovecraftis 

Are you following your heart’s desire or does fear stop you? 

The title for this post came to me in a meditation last week and then as if the universe was in sync, I discovered as I made my tour around the blogosphere,  as I opened my email and then on Facebook others were writing about the same topics- Desires, Dreams and FEAR

How many of you get stopped by FEAR? I know I do!

  • Fear of the unknown
  • Dreaded fear of the what if syndrome
  • Fear of stepping out and moving beyond your comfort zone
  • Fear of change
  • Fear of  not being enough
  • Fear of making a mistake
  • Fear of  waking up
  • Fear of failure
  • Fear of being discovered!  Now that means you do have to come out of hiding 🙂  and I am sure you can add more.

Is Fear an Illusion?

Robin Easton says:The monster called “Fear” has a seemingly very “reasonable” way of tricking us back into our complacency, our inactivity, and even our deadness. However, I’ve found that fear is more often than not an illusion.”

FEAR so often stops us living our dreams, yet when we take that one courageous step forward new ways of being spring forth. It is then we can shine our light and live our dream, our heart’s desire and be the hero or heroine in our own life. I know so often I get stopped by fear of the dreaded what if syndrome. Yet we probably have all seen the acronym  for fear False Evidence Appearing Real and this is what I so often forget. It’s not real it what we think, we just don’t know. this can have us playing small as well as missing I believe much joy not to mention golden opportunities that will pass by.

When we can tap into out heart’s desires and step into our dreams we wake up and begin to shine our light and miracles can happen. We will then experience more feelings of joy and abundance not to mention those of love and empowerment.

How do we overcome our fears? How do we remain fearless?

On my journey around my favorite blogs I discovered a wonderful resource from Tess at The Bold Life :  75 Ways to remain fearless. Just a few if these ways will move you forward. One of my  favorites is no 48: Radiate abundance. Prosperity is a knowing. Think abundant thoughts, make abundant choices, be an abundant person. I know that when you live in and from abundance the way you see yourself and the world will change in a positive way

We need to take action to move out of out fear as  Kathleen Gage said in the email I opened that morning “Oprah didn’t happen upon her success. Nope. She failed a bunch of times and had to deal with the fears that haunted her. She got it wrong long before she got it right. Many people don’t realize that Oprah’s first television debut was a complete failure, but that didn’t hold her back. She rose above seemingly insurmountable odds (and lots of getting it wrong) to become one of the most influential women in history”

Today I feel like I am starting out on a new journey to move out of my comfort zone and shine my light. The past 14 months I have been able to hide behind my illness and my fractures and  really putting myself out there again takes courage and I am listening closely to my heart’s desire, my heart whispers and following my intuition. It feels good and I am happy to be moving forward fearlessly.

Fear is not you enemy it is your compass pointing you to areas you need to grow– Steve Pavlina

Will you take a step forward towards your heart’s desire today?

Angela Artemis says  The Intuition Principle  is the key to finding your purpose, living with passion and joy, and heightening your success. It is that inner voice that directs you in times of need and the unexpected solution to a problem that appears just when you need it.  The Intuition Principle is a book that will empower you.  I have been using my intuition for many years and there are new exercises Angela has introduced me to through the book that will extend my intuitive life.

I had the pleasure of talking with Angela about how and why she developed her intuition, why she wrote the book, how she helped me through giving me a prescription that rekindled my creativity and more. I hope you will find something that touches your heart and inspires you to to either begin to use or extend your intuitive practice.
