Vacation Days are Important

How Important is Vacation to You?

Illuminated Engagements
Vacations are important

There is a new commercial from MasterCard about not taking vacation days.  It points out that most people these days in America aren’t taking all their vacation days –apparently they too busy at work to do so and now their children are suffering as a result.  As one little girl points out, “It’s Paid Vacation Days,” explaining the fact the days are paid. These children want one more day from their parents.  And while the commercial is obviously promoting the use of the MasterCard credit card, the message is real, convincing and really very sad.

Why aren’t more people taking vacations?  According to my stay in corporate world it’s because the work goes on even if they are not there – and when they come back, because they haven’t kept up with the pile of work on their desks daily, there is now a whole boatload to deal with.

People of corporate America probably don’t read this blog – but I’m going to say this anyway – people: this is wrong!  As a member of corporate America for at least 20 years now in one form or fashion – the fact that people don’t take vacation days is just very sad.  The problem lies not with the workers but with management.  Poor management.

The corporate culture in this country has said let’s make profit at the expense of others.  There’s nothing wrong with making money, don’t get me wrong.  Again the problem isn’t the making of money.  It is how we make the money.  Is it honorable?  Or is it greedy?

Universal law says that greed follows greed.  Honor will follow honor.  The law of cause and effect states basically that what comes around goes around.  What these people of greed and dishonor will have is greed and dishonor comes back onto them in some form or fashion.  Whether they wind up divorced, broke, diseased or in jail, the universe will take care of them because the universe reflects back to them what they are putting out.  “Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord”, is the basically the way the Bible puts it.

I’ve witnessed ambulances coming and going at my former place of work, as a result of people working so hard they have heart attacks at their desks, especially around Christmas (year’s end).  Daddy/Mommy isn’t going to be at Christmas this year because they had to meet some impossible year end deadline that the management set is the story told too often.

We all have to learn to become more responsible for our actions and our acts.  We have to plan better and manage better – in all areas of our lives.

I’m going out on a limb with this blog – it’s much harsher than previous blogs.  But if we are going to change – we have to change.  For if nothing changes, nothing changes.

Our behaviors are ruled by our beliefs.  Start checking what you believe and what you don’t.  And if you don’t believe that vacations aren’t right for you because you’ll have too much work at the end of it –do something about that.  Go to management.  Tell them you need help.  Designate others to do the work.
At last resort, go to human resources, your union leader, form a union, protest or find another job.

You are too important to others and your family.  Even the media with its commercials are now pleading for us to change.  Change starts with one person.  Will it be you?   Or will your kids be missing you because you were too busy working to take a vacation?  It’s “paid vacation days” – take it–for your kid’s sake if not your own!

Put Forward Your Positive Thoughts

Illuminated EngagementsOkay, okay– so our last blog was a bit of a downer. Not much positive thoughts there. But stay with us–we’re making a point. Ever since Dec 2012, there have been mixed energies floating around. Now what you do with all those energies–which are really indifferent energies–meaning they are neither good or bad–what you do with these energies and how respond to these energies—is up to you. Do we respond negatively and cry out that the sky is falling? Or do we dismiss the fact that Mercury is retrograde, Saturn is in Aries, and that your cat threw up on the rug again–and simply start looking at life in a more realistic fashion and respond accordingly?

For Mercury could be retrograde, the phone psychic said your love life will never be good and your mom yelled at you–all part of life–but how are you responding to these life occurrences? Are you putting too much emphasis on the little things and not looking at the bigger picture?

For example–you may be employed; many are not. You may have decent car and shelter–many have lost theirs. Yep, times are tough. So now is the time for you to grow a thicker skin, get into a better frame of mind and charge ahead with renewed and reinvigorated energy.

Universal law is going to respond to your dominate thoughts. If these thoughts are negative, of lack and generally down-in-the-mouth–the universe will provide even more of the same to you. Like attracts like.

Sometimes it’s hard to go from sadness to joy–in fact it’s darn near impossible. You can’t do from one extreme emotion to the next. But you can reach for the emotion or feeling that will give you a release and relief from the current situation. This is why we lightworkers are always telling you to go outside for a walk. Exercise releases chemical hormones in your body that naturally let you feel better.

Keep walking and talking–about what you want not what you don’t want. And life will get better. Wherever Mercury happens to be in the heavens.

With Love and Light Always,

Never Give Up Your Dreams!

Dreams
Don’t give up on your dreams! Photo by Blake Cahoon

These are tough times for some – of that there is no doubt—right? I mean the news media tells us every day how bad the economy is—unless its a politician or two or three. So should we give up on our dreams? Our goals? Our passions? Should we let the naysayers kill the spirit that may still hide deep inside us?

The answer, of course my friends, is a resounding NO!

The fact is you make your own reality in this life or any other life you may have. It is part of Universal Law. You can let others decide for you the decisions of your life – your parents, your school and teachers, your government, your religion and your news media – but the ultimate decision whether you listen to any of these external factors or you listen inwards –into your own heart, soul and gut—is your choice.

Don’t give up on your dreams just because of external forces – instead embrace them and fight for them.

Here’s an article that might help you win your battle:

Power of Visualization for Businesses and Life!

Last year I hired a business coach to help rescue my flaying business which was really all over the place and where I wanted it to go? –I didn’t have a clue! My business coach was (and still is) great and as a result of working with her, this new business of mine (Illuminated Engagements) came together very quickly and my other business (Amethyst Moon), which is a sister site to this site got revamped.

One of the things, Maggie Mongan, my business rescue coach emphasizes is the power of visualization –imaging how your business looks and how you want it to look. She recently wrote about this in her weekly blog. These same principals can be applied to us in life. When we ask for something to manifest, we must first imagine what our desire looks like and apply true intent towards this desire. This action will allow the universe to feed our energy into manifestation.

I love what Maggie says in #1 – we must take time to perform this simple action for anything we want to create –whether it is for our business or our personal life. Visualization is a very powerful too.
What points does Maggie point out that ring true for you?
