New Inspiration Line Message: “The Power of Your Holistic Heart”! 215-552-8850

Dear Friends (and Total Complete Strangers)!
 
I have just recorded a new message on my Free, 24-hour Inspiration Line for your enjoy-itude and inspirement…
 
You may listen at 215.552.8850
 
If you called a few days ago you would’ve have heard another message (themed: “Go with the Flow”) which included a further update that I am no longer inviting donations for it, as doing so didn’t create a buzz, and I’m all about the buzz, babykins!
 
In my message today, I say that your holistic heart is your:
 
a) Physical organ
b) Emotional guide
c) Center of wisdom and discernment
 
I also say that my friend O once shared (at a performance art piece at the Black Women’s Arts Festival) that the heart develops BEFORE the brain. This should remind us to put our hearts first in life, and THEN our brains.
 
Lastly, I close with how when we live a heart-based/heart-centered life, we triple our power and effectiveness, have better relationships, and are much happier overall.
 
In between, I share some persunal stuff you can only experience if you call!
 
Thanks for being here. My audience ROCKS!
 
P.S. And special thanks to a reader in Oregon, for the heartfelt advice and encouragement about applying for disability!
 
In (he)art and community,
 
Cassendre

Affirming Abundance: Spend Some Money! (Inspiration Line Update!)

Dear Friends and Total Complete Strangers!

Yesterday morning at 9 I posted the following on Facebook:

New message on my Free, 24-hour Inspiration Line! “Affirming Abundance: Spend Some Money!” (215-552-8850) Written article of the same title and topic coming soon at cassEndrExavier dot wordpress dot com, or cassEndrExavier dot blogspot dot com. (Never let it be said!)
=====================

Here now is that article!

Affirming Abundance: Spend Some Money!

Friday night I went out to dinner with a dear platonic female poet friend, someone whom I haven’t seen in over a year and possibly for as long as 2 years, due to my extremely non-social mental health and other issues at the time…
Afterwards I was headed to where I am now, a sweetie-turned-part-time host/provider of lodge-ational qualities.
I had two travel options, one of which would cut my travel time in half which I would have greatly appreciated as it was getting late, and I was tired and yearned to lie down, rest, and retire for the evening.
Trouble is, it was only Friday, and my SEPTA Zone 1 monthly TransPass would not have covered my ride. I thought of and began planning to fudge my way to a free ride.
I was going to show the conductor my pass, and hope he let my story of mistaking Friday for a weekend slide. I told my dining companion my plan, and I was cheerful about it. Then I recalled that I had in my wallet not one, but two, count ’em, TWO tickets for that ride, purchased a couple of months earlier, in case I needed to use them.
I realized, that well, guess, what sweetie, Ya need to use one now!
So often we are reluctant to spend what we have, and this happens most often when we see our funds or resources start to run low.
Everything we do is done in the spirit of either faith and abundance, or fear and scarcity. I knew that if I kept with my plan of trying to get a free ride I would be affirming fear and scarcity to the universe and I would then attract circumstances that matched that feeling and state of mind. If I didn’t use one of my two tickets, I would be saying in essence, “I don’t have,” and “I can’t afford…” I noticed my feelings behind wanting to not use one of the tickets… I was afraid I would not be able to buy more when I needed them.
Quickly I steered the ship if my mind’s thoughts to the opposite direction…
First I immediatedly decided against trying to get a free ride. I determined to use a ticket, and then I started to notice my feelings there again…. Some of them were fear of an even lower supply, but then I started applying the medicine of gratitude and self-affirmation…
I realized how awesome it was that I had not only been able to provide for myself a monthly TransPass, but that I had easily been able to buy those two tickets. I told myself those were there precisely for my use, and that now I had a need to use them.
I reminded myself that money always comes, and of the importance of keeping the energetic flow of money moving – not letting it become stagnant.
So I invite you to do the same thing:
Keep your flow of abundance moving and going, because then you are attracting more. As it goes it must return, yes?

Here is what to think when you start running low of funds:

1)I am connected to the Divine Source of All abundance and prosperity. This amount of (whatever you have and are monitoring or worried about) is NOT a measure of my worth, my quality of life, nor what is ultimately possible for me. I trust, and all is well.
2)I am grateful for what I have and I know I will both create and attract even more.
3)When I have less, I am still joyful and abundant. I just have less.
4)This resource is here for me to spend and enjoy. I am grateful for this and my spending it completes the circle of my energetic flow. I trust, and all is well.
5)When I spend money, I and my money benefit others. I am thrilled to be able to contribute to the universe’s wellness by sharing what I have!
6)I am prosperous in all ways. Even my troubles are here to bless me, if I seek their lessons, learn, and move on. I become a better persun when I easily accept everything in my life, and make the best and most of it. Sometimes my prosperity shows and sometimes it doesn’t, but I always know it is there. I always know I am a prosperous persun!
7)My heart is full of joy, love, and light. This attracts better things to me, and I am aligned with all of my good!
8)It is my earthly and Divine duty to share what I have. I remember this when my funds are low. “If you have one dollar, you have enough to share.” –mother of pop icon Rhianna, recently awarded honors for her philanthropy

May you always trust in your own abundance and prosperity, regardless of what your wallet, bank account, or kitchen cupboards show.
AFFIRM: I prosper in all good things. I trust, and all is well!

Very best to you,

Cassendre

Inspiration Line Update: Procrastination As Part of Your Project & Progress

Dear Friends!
Greetings and welcome to the written portion of the *Free, 24-hr Cassendre Xavier Inspiration Line (215-552-8850)!
At 8:30am Friday, March 3rd, 2017 I recorded a message about:
Procrastination As Part of Your Project & Progress
Here are my thoughts:
Many of you who are called to my work, which is to inspire, uplift, and entertain, are like me: healers, teachers, writers, artists. You may be an activist, a poet, an actor of any gender, a community leader, a director of a nonprofit organisation that focuses on a lifelong vision of yours… You are on a divine mission and life purpose to make a big change in your region, or in the world.
You want to help other people feel, live, and do better. You want to do those things yourself, and perhaps you share with others your struggle and challenges, and most importantly, how you got or get through those tough times.
People who are here to do big things feel big pain, too. Most of that pain comes from fear of success, fear of failure, fear of being happy, productive, loved. Fear of being healthy.
Maybe you were abused growing up, or maybe you struggle with an addiction (or three)! You don’t know how to love yourself well enough and you don’t know how to feel good for more than three seconds at a time. Maybe you know how to feel good for one whole solid minute, but you’re deathly afraid that proverbial and always present other shoe is going to drop.
One of the ways we act on our fears is by procrastinating. If we procrastinate then we don’t have to think about doing the work we came here to do. Then we don’t have to face success, or be happy, to only then lose those good feelings and circumstances when that other shoe drops.
Well, the goal shouldn’t be to try to stop procrastinating for good. That’ll never happen. We can best manage and reduce procrastinating by radically accepting and then loving our habits.
Watching too many episodes of Judge Judy when you should be finishing your application for that arts grant? Love yourself and accept your procrastination.
Next time you procrastinate, do this:
a)Tell yourself that you are definitely going to finish the project, with or without procrastination. See yourself doing so. Know that it will be done!
b)Remember all the projects you did finish and notice how each one of those successes also contained periods of procrastination!
c)Enjoy the procrastinating task. Watching too much YouTube or hanging on The Facebooks too long? Get up and get yourself a cup of tea, then return to really enjoy and savor that procrastination task. You’ve already told and reassured yourself that you WILL complete the project, and you know you’ll stop procrastinating eventually.
d)Keep focusing on loving yourself. You’re the only you you have, and if it’s too hard to be nice to yourself outright, start practicing by treating yourself as you would a beloved child or other persun in your life you get along with very easily and care for deeply.
Your being gentle with yourself will get you more progress, reach out and positively impact others, and ultimately grow more kindness and peace in the world.
Remember, procrastination IS part of your project, and your overall progress. Embrace it!
In art, inspiration, and community,
Cassendre Xavier
