a strong belief that something will happen or be the case in the future.
a belief that someone will or should achieve something.
one's prospects of inheritance.

Expectation, an idea with anticipation of a certain result, can be very exiting and allow us to feel good about something to come.

Today I heard thunder and saw lightning so I was left with an expectation of rain.  I was very happy in my short wait, where I live it hardly rains. I like the rain and the fact that it cleanses and brings life.  When it rained My expectation was fulfilled and me too for that matter.  It was awesome, I got rained on a little on the way to my truck.  It cooled things off and felt nice.  My expectation fulfilled in a very pleasing manner.

Many of us have expectations for a number of things.  Often when our expectations are met we are fulfilled, happy or elated!! This is normal and healthy.

Sometimes we voice our expectation to another and they in turn let us know whether or not our desire can be met.  That is normal and healthy communication. Communicating our Expectation and then receiving what we wish for can be wonderful. Or even knowing that what we want can not happen is good we can then adjust our expectation to a more feasible or reasonable wish that can be achieved.

At times we have expectations of others that, for some odd reason, we don't communicate.  

These unspoken desires or anticipated outcomes can often be met leaving us feeling good. 
A gamble with our intentions? Our well being?

What if those unmentioned expectations are not met?  Well, that could lead to disappointment, frustration even anger and resentment.  Not very healthy probably not normal but unfortunately socially acceptable.

When we have expectations of others that we neglect to communicate we set our selves up for disappointment and failure.  You know what they say about assuming ass u me "makes an ass of you and me".  Certainly the expecting individual can be left without a desired outcome.

A less than desired outcome can be devastating for some.

If you want something from a friend or loved one and don't let them know how can they satisfy your desire?

Think about this.  How many times have you heard "Well I expected.......".  Did you communicate your need?  Were you disappointed when it wasn't met?

Setting yourself up for failure!  Very good to facilitate a victim consciousness. Probably not healthy or normal.  We need not be victims.
We do need to communicate our expectations for there to be an opportunity of  desired result.

Communication will allow you to never be a victim to expectations not met!!!

We are creating our reality with our thoughts, words and actions.  We are Co-Creators of our life and reality.  We are responsible for our lives.  We can be happy and all of our, reasonable, expectations can be met.  

If you want or need something, no matter what it is, expression of expectation is needed. That is communication and is healthy and normal. 
Please let someone know what you expect so that they can come through for you or at least let you know that they might not be able to and then come to an agreeable outcome for both!

Lovingly ask for what you need!  
When asked for something, lovingly and honestly respond!

I want to feel good!!

Feeling good!!!

For me it isn't an option, I feel good!!  

James Brown said it and I'm feelin' it!!!

As should we all!!

We are here just a short time and should enjoy it, having fun and being happy!  Please, let that be your reality.  Try it you will like it.


Love and respect yourself. Let the things that bring you happiness take a place of priority in your life.

Allow your thoughts, words and actions to be positive, filled with love and create what you want in your life!!

Think in a positive way.

Say positive words.

Make positive actions.

Let these simple things lead you to a state of feeling good!

We are so blessed in this life we have here. Each day we have the opportunity to start over.  Every morning the sun rises and illuminates a new day for us!! We can begin anew and feel good.  It is our option!

It's like a light switch just turn it on or off.

on - off

Positive - Negative

Love - Fear

A simple act, a decision.  Like a switch.  What do you want?

I feel good!

Herbal Medicine

Just a note about what has led up to this moment.

In 1990 I bought a book about herbal medicine and found it fascinating that people could use plants as medicine.  I purchased some herbs and made some tea Don't remember what or why but remember the way it felt very magical.  Soon I was making herbal blends, some of them pretty bad tasting, for friends.  The herbs allowed my friends to recover balance in their state of well being and health.  I thought that it was the greatest thing!! Imagine that making magic happen!!!

A new passion had begun...

Now many years have passed and the passion only grows!!! Magical moments often pass in the use of herbal medicine.  I like making magic..

I have studied and taught in many places in North America, for the last 14 year mostly in Mexico.  One of the things I love about what I do is that the learning never ends.  I am learning every day, still after all these years, with my friends plants and people and especially from the people with whom  I am sharing the herbal medicine / magic.

My experience in Mexico has been such a gift to me, I have shared herbs with people all over the country. 
Treating dis-eases of all types and people from all walks of life.  Many of my "patients" had been told by other practitioners of medicine that there was nothing that could be done to help their condition. Imagine that feeling "I can't be helped with my problem" and then finding someone that says  "Let's see what we can do".
My "teachers" in their desperate situations have taught me so much!  The feeling of helping a desperate person find some relief and get some resemblance of balance back in their life is such a joy for me.  MAGIC!  The gratitude and happiness that I have seen in these cases is so beautiful.   It feeds my passion.

Some times I meet someone and they find out about what I do and they always ask do you have an herb for this or that problem and of course, anyone who knows me will laugh, I tell them "We got Herbs for that!!".  In other occasions I tell them come let's go for a walk and see what the local Pharmacy has to offer.  Upon finding the correct plant, making an offering of tobacco and prayer, gathering the medicine and sending them off home with their remedy then later a call telling me that they feel better. MAGIC!!! It gives one a sense of job satisfaction as well as job security. 

 Life as a Curandero. It gets no better!

So I spend my time traveling here and there helping people and making friends.  

I could be visiting somewhere near you and don't forget "We got herbs for that!"
I will post again soon!!!
