I attended the Abraham-Hicks, Well-Being workshop yesterday, the theme I picked up on was how we focus, our perspective. My life has changed for the magnificent between their wisdom, my remembering my own power within and applying what they teach, along with many other teachers, has been life changing.
“It isn’t what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” -Henry David Thoreau
“When you Change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” Dr. Wayne Dyer
I sat next to a very nice gentleman, he had a cold or dry throat and was putting lozenges in his mouth throughout the seminar. After doing so, he was fidgeting with the wrapper. Now, I noticed the sound he was making but I was focused on Abraham. I was able to easily tune him out and listen to the wisdom that resonates within me.
A woman in front of us, heard the wrapper and turned to give him a very cold stare. I was not clear whether he saw this or “got” her non-verbal hint or not.
I got it, I admit I do not like making waves, her cold stare made me feel uncomfortable.
Towards the end of the seminar she turned around and said, “That is very distracting for me, I cannot concentrate (focus) on Abraham.”
He was not aware he was doing it.
I had forgotten he was doing it because it was not in my awareness/focus.
For a moment, I was uncomfortable at her saying something to him.
I tried to soothe myself from the momentary discomfort of her discomfort and then, it hit me.
It was Law of Attraction in Action, right in front of me.
Exactly what Abraham was speaking of, playing out right before my eyes.
As he was leaving, I told him, “You know, I wasn’t fully “aware” you were making noise until she pointed it out to me.”
My focus, attention, perspective was mesmerized by listening to Abraham and how to apply or how I do apply and weave all of their wisdom in my life already.
This is not at all about, me being able to focus better than this lady, hence I wasn’t aware of his noises. It is the fact that as she focused upon the conditions that were not comfortable to her, the condition got bigger (louder). By her feeling the need to tell him about how much he was bothering her, she was trying, did her best to “change” the conditions so she could feel better, rather than focusing upon what she wanted or in a way that was of greater benefit to her. Abraham has said, paraphrasing, “It isn’t the BIG things you think about or focus upon that creates what is unfolding in front of you, it is the little things.” Do you choose to allow conditions to bother you and try to change them OR are you able to focus or perceive things in a way that is pleasing. YOU can control how you focus or perceive. If you try to control another, you will lose. She was able to get him to stop the noise for that moment but, who will be the next person or thing to show up to cause her discomfort?
It was BRILLIANT!

With some of the chaos in the world (which I recognize is minuscule in comparison to the joy and love in our world), especially recent events in a nearby county of San Bernadino, Paris before that, so many focus upon fear, being scared and believing things are going wrong in the world. Certainly, I understand and have compassion for those who undergo stress or tragedy, I desire, I am always able to refocus upon the good in our world.
When you know how to create a life you desire, (focusing in the direction of all you desire, finding joy in the little things life offers so abundantly) not giving “air-time” the what you believe/percieve is going wrong. You recognize you must learn and practice looking and observing life in the direction that is how you desire living. Does that mean everything is always perfect? Absolutely not. I am not perfect but I pray I always choose to focus upon love, peace, ease and any other emotion that is so desirable to me.
I cannot look in that direction of chaos, tragedy or those things that others may want to know for the purpose of being informed any longer without feeling physically ill.
I cannot watch the news without finding myself physically beginning to feel ill.
I appreciate how far I have come and recognize on many different subjects, I have much to learn, release and this, is what life in physical form is all about.
I also recognize, no matter where anyone else is on their journey, All is perfectly well. All is going just right. No judgment, it simply is.
While not everyone else sees things this way, I know for me, there is greater ease than focusing on/in the direction as the majority.
Ease, Peace, Love. Stay in love.
Tonight, when my husband came home from work, he mentioned something terrible happening in Paris. I do not listen to the news and because I am sensitive to the world around me, I tip toe around hearing about things of this nature. I recognize many well-meaning, loving people want to be glued to the television to be informed about what is going on. It is far too easy to get wrapped up in the discomfort that is happening and unless you live nearby, you are probably not able to assist immediately. What if you have the power to assist all involved simply by focusing in a way that truly has power to assist everyone?
My first thoughts I heard powerfully within me is, STAY IN LOVE!
From my perspective, energy flows where attention goes, as one of my favorite mystics, Abraham-Hicks says. Certainly what is happening to those in Paris and the repercussions this will have on family and friends will be great BUT, we all have the ability to hold them in LOVE, focusing upon the Divine aspect in each person involved. Sending love, staying in the energy of love can actually assist our brothers and sisters in Paris.
Fear renders every single one of us powerless.
LOVE, has the ability to HEAL the world. Offer prayers of LOVE, not the energy or thoughts of worry or fear to Paris.
Join me in sending LOVE unto ALL, Tracie
I was fortunate enough to learn early on in Connor’s life, he was reflecting my “inner” tantrums with his “outer” tantrums.
The moment you can recognize, you are upset with someone or something, if you can hold up the mirror and ask yourself, “Why does this person, moment or action, bother me so much?” You will find yourself on the precipice of healing a part of your soul. Those things that continue showing up in your life, do so, so they may be seen (by you) and healed. Sometimes, beloved angels show up in our lives to reflect back and show us where we need to be healed. Often, they are our own children who volunteer for the job.

It is my belief, my awareness, my understanding, my knowing our children are an integral part of this paradigm shift.
Growth is never comfortable as we have witnessed when our ‘typical’ children go through growing pains, add autism or any other so-called disability to the mix and you understand why our children diagnosed with autism often have dis…comfort in many areas.
This is why they are so sensitive to vaccines or often have negative reactions to vaccines or any foreign contaminant within their bodies, like processed foods.
This is why all of their five senses are often amplified on many levels, so much so we are left perplexed as to why they may be screaming when we as their parents or teachers cannot understand why they are having such a difficult time.
As I came into the awareness of this evolution Connor was showing me, as I recognized he was not disordered as I was told, he was simply different, an amplified, purer human being, so much relief came over me it was visible to Connor.
This opened up so much for us to become aware of within this new understanding.
As I began to practice unconditional love within my daily life, I began a magnificent journey that is available to all of us if we are willing to be curious about our children rather than doing our best to change who they are.
The moment you entertain this idea, your perceptual reality will begin to shift immediately.
Often when our children express discomfort or tantrum, we shift into reactionary mode which will often amplify the moment.
Rather than moving forward with your energy, adding to the negative energy, take a deep breath, find the calm within your being, it is there waiting for you to access it.
The more ‘you’ practice this calm space within, the more power you have within you to soothe the moment rather than adding chaos to the moment.
As you begin to master your own calm space, your ability to sense your own energy will become fine-tuned and you can lead your child into that calm state of BEing.

What if becoming a parent isn’t about trying to control another? What if, it isn’t about making your child be and act a certain way? It isn’t about parenting or guiding your children in a way others believe you should parent.
What if parenting from a mindful, balanced, authentic place/space, is an opportunity to really get to know and tune in with our children on deeper levels than any other parenting generation has been privileged to behold?
In doing so, we connect with our innermost BEing, where all knowledge and clarity springs forth for all to see. Experiencing each other, in the most playful, loving ways where defiance becomes nonexistent.
My love, Tracie
For as long as I can remember, seniors, beginning with my great-grandparents, have held a special place in my heart. I work part-time at a residential, senior living community, they are all dear to me, even the sometimes fussy, cranky ones. (We all have good days and bad)
I have met many and given the type of work/play this is, I have observed their physical lives come to an end. For some, a long, slow release, others, very sudden. All hold a very special place in my heart for as many different reasons as there are stars in the heavens.
One day a couple, about my age, came into the community with their young adult son, I recognized the young man and his mother immediately. I’ve seen them in passing at the high school my children attend. Since I have a child with Autism, I recognized immediately, this young man has Autism as well although he is a little bit older than our Connor. I was thrilled to see them and eager to find out who they were visiting.
After a short inquiry, she mentioned she was there to assist her dad in moving things out of her grandmother’s apartment. My heart immediately filled with such love for this woman standing in front of me as if I had always known her. “Do you mean, “Mary Smith”? (not her real name) Yes, she said, that is my grandmother. How had I not met her before? I’ve worked at this place for four years, albeit only part-time. I was amazed this “connection” had not been made before.
“Mary Smith” always made me smile. She was always very well put together, often wearing lovely cardigan sets, matching pants and a low but classy heal, pearls, dressed to the nines. Elegant is the perfect word for her. She would walk by my desk on her way to dinner. I would mention how lovely she looked and she ALWAYS either shook her hips or kicked back a leg while holding onto her walker, leaving me with a smile on my face. I never had the opportunity to speak at length with “Mary Smith” because she was hard of hearing, even with a hearing aid(s) in place. Smiles, kind glances and short saucy exchanges were experienced and always left me smiling.
Seeing her granddaughter and her great-grandson who happens to have Autism, in that moment, I knew this was “Mary” showing me/us she is still with us and all around us. We never made the “Autism” connection while she was alive but she made certain the connection was made nonetheless.
This short and sweet connection left me floating. It left me with a knowing, our beloveds are always with us, guiding us, sharing love with us, acting as the “concierge in the sky”. We only need to open our hearts and minds to see the connection. As the family of my senior friend left the community for the last time, my heart was so full at this lasting connection to “Mary”.
My Love and Appreciation, Tracie
This child is still teaching me and I continue to learn more and more, 3 years later. Every single person who comes into our lives IS here for great purpose whether they are in our lives for a long period of time or short. LOVE, Tracie
We just got back from one of our summer trips, a wonderful road trip to Oregon and we had a blast. It has been several years since we did a road trip, flying is usually our comfort level at this stage of life but we have such fond, sweet memories of ‘road tripping’ when the children were babies and toddlers when that seemed easier to handle on our own rather than on a plane full of other passengers.
Many of you know it is my perspective, our children diagnosed with autism, have the ability to mirror or amplify the environment around them, this is the case with our youngest child Connor as well. I was reminded of this once again, the day before it was time to pack up the car and head home, all of us were tired…

I just arrived home from a wonderful family vacation in Yosemite National Park. Our eldest son took this photo of me just after I had a long interaction with a beautiful butterfly which danced and circled all around me. Rather than being surprised by this fun interaction, it seemed natural to me a butterfly would want to interact with me, I was utterly and completely blissful and content. I had been playing with our family the past week, taking scenic tours, small hikes, star-gazing every night, exquisite!! Enjoying the company of my husband and three teenagers who are incredible individuals in their own right. It seems times, perhaps moments like this, offer me a perspective to see the perfection in all that I live. Depression, despair, JOY, LOVE and Happiness. The good outweighs any and all discomfort I have ever experienced, I have been at the end of a dark tunnel, unable to find the light. All of that has assisted me in carving out more depth to fill in with more JOY, LOVE and HAPPINESS.
Life seems to be calling all of us on many different levels, (none better than another) to take a step forward, to become consciously aware of what we say and repeat (over and over) to ourselves. To clarify what another speaks of in regard to us and make the choice. Is what they say or what they think of us true? YOU get to decide. What another says, thinks or imposes upon you does not automatically become your truth, unless you give it permission. This poem speaks of “she” but men are equally capable (I encourage all) of deciding how they wish to view themselves and create within their own life. We get to create our life experiences and it is a never-ending process. One you can either embrace and learn to choose how to focus and perceive or allow others to make those choices for you.
With Great Appreciation, Tracie
SHE LET GO …. without a thought or a word, she let go.
She let go of the fear.
She let go of the judgements.
She let go of the opinions swarming around her head.
She let go of the committee of indecision within her.
She let go of all the “right” reasons.
Wholly and completely, without hesitation or worry, she just let go.
She didn’t ask for advice.
She didn’t read a book on how to let go.
She just let go.
She let go of all the memories that held her back.
She let go of all the anxiety that kept her from moving forward.
She let go of all the planning and all the calculation, about how to do it just right.
In the space of letting go, she let it all be.
A smile came over her face.
A light breeze blew through her.
And the sun and moon shone forever more.
