What is Tonglen, Simply?

Sometimes, I am sure, you wonder where my topics come from.  So do I, but today is all about TONGLEN , simply taking and giving.  That is it simplified.  But there is more to it…Beginning tomorrow with the month of February, my topics for my Empower Excellence “It’s Your Money” LIVE and More on Facebook, which is Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 8:45 LIVE and then available as Facebook feeds it, are Emotions and Money, beginning on February 1 with MONEY RAGE!

And emotions are all about “giving and taking” in whatever order you want to speak of it.  There is always a flip side to any emotion, or feeling.  And that is the secret of TONGLEN.  If you are filled with RAGE about Money, there is pain.  Take in the pain into your noble heart (and your heart is forever noble, forgiving, and loving), breathe, create space, and give back pleasure in some degree, first to yourself and then to others who may be involved in the original RAGE, making it less rage and more peace or calm or whatever will move you forward.  The first step in TONGLEN is to feel good about yourself.  Let the kindness and tenderness from your heart emerge.  The out breath opens up your heart and then your whole being.  This is an awakened heart.  Let the pain be as it is, but…

And then let Optimism begin.  No matter the situation, the feeling, the emotion, you do the best you can at any moment.  So stop the condemnation with money, and other topics, and how you feel about it — good or bad!  When you practice TONGLEN, then other feelings happen:  expansion of your mind, heart, and soul; contrast appears and disappears; an appreciation for how you feel; and you become aligned with your feelings and emotions in a positive way.  This begins OPTIMISM.  And, if others are involved, don’t be pained by their response as you move forward.  Their disreceptive mode is not your responsibility.  This is one place where the favorite mobster phrase “FORGET ABOUT IT” is appropriate.  Begin your own recovery, and you do not recover by remembering the original pain.  MOVE FORWARD in your purpose with your process and keep on walking…

Wealthy Women Transform the World!

Women are very good at creating legacies.  Women GIVE to the degree that 64% of online donations are made by women!  Girls at a young age want to make money because they learn that, if they want something and their parents will not buy it, then they want to have their own money.  Then they can buy what they want.  They are all for an allowance.  This is their first step into financial freedom.  It is an opportunity to care about their financial well-being, and that opportunity is carried with them through life to nurture family, close or not-so-close, with what is the foundation of a family legacy for financial wellness.  Beginning to acquire money at an early age actually helps instill the thought of abundance rather than lack, confidence rather than lack of confidence, optimism rather than pessimism.  And it is never too late to begin to look for the freedom that money brings…especially if you are a woman!

Simplicity, Optimism, and NOW Patience

IMG_854833149154i am always amazed how much patience has to do with money.  And it does.  Today is one of those days as a small business person that I am waiting for money in the mail, money through the internet, and decisions to be made in regards to money.  But I am my own best teacher.  I know that if I busy myself with the things of my business and being out with people networking that all will be fine because I am keeping the pipeline full.  But it is all about patience, and I no longer ask the Universe to help me to be patient because the Universe will keep sending me work to improve my patience.  So I am keeping it simple, and I am optimistic, and in the end I am patient and have learned to
