And the Answer Is …

Want to Focus on your life? The Forty Day Plan was BORN for FOCUS.

Day 30 of The Forty Day Plan

I’ve got a question for you. What if you only had five days left to live and money was no object. How would you spend those last five days?

It’s a question that most people can’t answer quickly. I like that it provokes a human to spend time considering what they’d like to experience in this short time we all get on planet earth.

I believe that KNOWING what we’d like to experience is STEP ONE to getting that experience.

Today’s card from Barbara Faison’s, Relax, Listen and Trust Your Inner Guidance card deck is:
I know it’s OKAY not to have ANSWERS right now”.

I pulled this card on day eight (8) of The Forty Day Plan. I’m not surprised that I pulled it today.
That Universe KNOWS what I got going on in life, and I see it in every card that I’ve pulled since I’m been on this Forty Day Journey.

I have a decision to make. It feels difficult. I don’t KNOW RIGHT NOW, and it’s really okay. But check this out. I tried to put myself on a deadline with my answer for today, but lo and behold, they said, wait until Monday.

I know it’s OKAY not to have ANSWERS right now.

I’m going to take my time this weekend and my answer will be what’s right for me. I will trust my universal gut to make the decision that helps me experience the goodness of life.
Questions are essential to getting you to where you want to BE.

Here’s some questions that can help you LIVE LIFE BETTER
What do you want?
Why do you want it?
How will you know when you get it?
What is the FIRST step to getting it?

And it really is OKAY not to have answers right now.


I Feel It

I’m feeling this Forty Day Plan.

Day 29 of The Forty Day Plan

Exhale. Contradiction. Inhale. Forgiveness.

Ya’ll. I take three conscious breaths most every morning and night. I feel my body expanding and contracting. My body likes it, and it brings me to into the current moment.

When I pulled todays card, I instantly thought of Ho’oponopono, which is a Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness.

Today’s card from Barbara’s Faison’s Relax, Listen and Trust Your Inner Guidance card deck is a Listen card:

“My Body Reminds Me to Forgive Myself”.

Barbara’s Faison’s Relax, Listen and Trust Your Inner Guidance card deck .

Forgive Me, Myself and I

Yesterday’s post was about GRACE – and I spoke of some negative character traits of BEING HUMAN and GRACE. So I won’t go into what or why I need to FORGIVE MYSELF.

My body TELLS me WHEN I need to forgive myself. I feel it in like an extra layer of invisible skin. I don’t know about you, but I’m carring enough around already.

What the Hokey Pokey Ho’oponopono?
Ho’oponopono is one of many tools that help me live life better. When my soul feels disturbed, I can say the words –
I’m Sorry, Please Forgive Me, Thank You, I Love You,
and my body to releases tension, and relaxes. I breath deeper and longer and feel the energy of the words in my body.

I don’t need my ego co-signing my behaviors. I will use the many tools I’ve gained to live life better and yes, I will forgive myself as often as I get that “feeling”. Enjoy the music!


Gracefully Yours

I’m Grateful for The Forty Day Plan

Day 28 of The Forty Day Plan

My first memories of GRACE goes something like this:

“God is great, God is good. Let us thank him for our food. By his hand we all are fed. Give us Lord our daily bread”.

As a child I said this “grace” before meals without a thought to the actual meaning of the words. It was something one memorized and said when asked to say grace before breakfast or dinner.

As I grew older, GRACE meant walking with a book on top of your head so that you exhibited good posture.

Forty Days of Focus Training

Amazing Grace
I know you’ve probably guessed that today’s post is about GRACE and you’re right. My card from Barbara Faisons Relax, Listen and Trust Your Inner Guidance card deck is:
” I GIVE myself GRACE”.

The New Age Of GRACE


Allowing others to think, behave, act, look, believe and be different from me in every imaginable way without judgement.
Say what?
It the without judgement part that gets a bit tricky, because you know, I AM HUMAN.

Mirror Mirror on the wall.

When I look back over the crazy things I’ve done in my youth, as a young adult, as an old adult, I KNOW it is BY GRACE that I have all my limbs and peace of mind today.

I give myself GRACE when I behave different from WHAT I KNOW TO BE TRUE FOR ME AND MY LIFE.

I GIVE myself GRACE without hesitation because:
and I know that
I AM MORE than any ridiculous action I take.
I AM MORE than any regretable choice I make.
I AM MORE than the pettiness that gets me riled up.
I AM MORE than any judgements I make about myself and
other HUMANS.

Enjoy one of my favorite artists folks and LIVE LIFE BETTER
Gratefully Yours


Ain’t That Right

The Forty Day Plan can change your life.

Day 27 of The Forty Day Plan

Don’t you just love it when things fall into place?

But what about Murphy’s law. “ If something can go wrong…it will”.

But what about Universal law? You get what you focus on.

Plain old common sense law. What you believe is TRUE.

I believe that EVERY EXPERIENCE is for our personal growth – bad, good and in between. Accepting life as it is and knowing that even when life feels good, that it can feel better keeps me feeling the awe of BEING HERE NOW.


It’s day 27 of The Forty Day Plan and I love the card I pulled today from Barbara Faisons Relax, Listen and Trust Your Inner Guidance card deck.
“The right people and resources show up at just the right time.”

Pulling this card early in the day was just what I needed to boost my energy and to reinforce what I KNOW to BE TRUE. That there is Divine Order in life and that is comforting.

I can think of sooooo many examples of “RIGHT” timing in my life that I’m comfortable WAITING .

I was contacted for a job with an offshore company and was told it would take at least a month, or longer to process the paperwork. So when I didn’t hear from them in two months I wasn’t concerned. When they finally called I found out the position for the initial job offer had been shelved BUT someone left and I was able to fill that position.

It still took a month to get started BUT I believed I had A Job and I did.
I used to live that stupid Murphy’s law and lots of things didn’t work out the way I desired but how could they when I was looking for trouble?

I wouldn’t trade any bad experiences for the way I See, Feel, and Live on Earth today. What’s for me will show up when IT DOES, and it will be RIGHT ON TIME.



Yes and Yes

It’s the Kindness

Day 26 of The Forty Day Plan

Have you noticed the Valentine’s stuff on the shelves. It’s probably been there since Dec 26th, but I really saw it yesterday as I went in search of …hehehe old fashioned hard Christmas candy (I didn’t find any).

But what has that got to do with The Forty Day Plan?

I’m glad you asked. Today I pulled a QUESTION card from

Before I understood life as I do today, on Valentines day I always wanted flowers delivered to my job so my co-workers could see how LOVED I WAS but I never got flowers delivered to the office. Inhale – Exhale.
I’m so glad I don’t need outside validation of my worthiness.
It makes life so much more BETTER.

Now back to the CARD OF THE DAY



Today’s card: How can I be MORE KIND to myself?

I love popcorn like really really bad. I find it almost impossible to leave any popcorn deliciousness in the bowl or bag.

Now I’ve been on Noom for some time, and I really don’t eat popcorn because you know…calories and uncontrolled love of popcorn.

Today though I’m craving CARBS and I found a bag of microwave popcorn in my desk- really it was caught in the space at the top and back …ANYWAY I FOUND popcorn and I popped it, and burnt a lot of it, but I ate the salvageable pieces and I enjoyed it.

Popcorn is my happy place.

How can I be MORE KIND to myself?
By giving myself the things I desire that are in my power and not giving a DA$$&^# about calories, price, or what other humans think.

Today I treated myself kind with one of my favorite treats. But I also gave myself hugs, deep breaths, and loving self talk. Today was a good day.




Relax, Listen and Trust Your Inner Guidance

Day 25 of The Forty Day Plan

Here’s what I’d be doing in this moment if I were not on a Forty Day Plan.

1. Going through my closet sorting out things I don’t wear anymore.
2. Putting holiday decorations up in the attic.
3. Washing a load of clothes.
4. Cooking salmon patties
5. Watching football, doing genealogy research, or yard work.
And this is on my day off from work. Curses on the insane human who came up with a 40 hour work week.

There’s always something to do so it’s easy to put your desires LAST.

It’s day 25 of The Forty Day Plan. If the Universe spare’s my physical life, I will reach day 40, and my FOCUS will be on the NEXT dinner, cleaning, bills to pay, or whatever stuff we do in everyday life.

If today WAS my last day on earth,
I certainly wouldn’t want to spend it doing chores. It is IMPORTANT that I spend MORE TIME ENJOYING LIFE MORE.

Today’s card from Barbara Faison’s Relax, Listen and Trust Your Inner Guidance card deck is a repeat. Again I am being lead to RELAX.
“I Rub my hands together, Place them in my heart space and NOTICE how I feel in my body”.

Have You Noticed?

I pulled this card on day 23 and I have been rubbing and hugging and noticing.
But today, I was up and out early. I led a fitness class. Went to several stores looking for something that I didn’t find. Then went by my nieces to pick up something. Made a couple phone calls on my ride home, then arrived home, ate mindfully (kudo’s to me). Then checked on something for my Mom. THEN I PULLED THIS CARDAGAIN.

Girl, sit your behind down and RELAX

I’m not gonna do most of the things on that LIST today. I don’t feel like it and I will honor my body. When I rub my hands, and place them in my heart space I feel the waves of the ocean coming in and going out with each breath.
I feel connected to the CREATOR OF ALL THINGS that temporarily resides in a meat suit who answers to the name Regenna.

The UNIVERSE notices every single dot of IT’S CREATION and that is AMAZING. I’m grateful to notice when I pull the same card twice. We get signs all the time but it’s the NOTICING of these signs that can HELP US LIVE LIFE BETTER. And so it is. Enjoy this time…and check in with your heart space..OFTEN.



Well Good

Relax, Listen and Trust Your Inner Guidance

Day 24 of The Forty Day Plan

I start and end most days with three conscious breaths, which was introduced to me by Barbara Faison. We’ve been on this journey of growth for a long time and it’s been enlightening, challenging, and rewarding.

When I pulled today’s card this song popped into my heart, so press play and read on.

Today’s card is a TRUST card from Barbara’s Relax, Listen and Trust Your Inner Guidance card deck.

I am SAFE and all is well in my world.

Barbara Faison’s Relax, Listen and Trust You Inner Guidance

Reading those words, and listening to this meditation warms my heart space. And adding deep conscious breathes, umm, umm, umm, feels deliciously calming, and safe.

Today I will focus on only the good things in my world.

And so it is.

Three conscious breaths to ease any tension.



Heart Warming

Something good is working out for me.

Day 23 of The Forty Day Plan

I pulled a RELAX card again and I need to RELAX. Now the old Regenna would be chastising herself for being fussy on a Friday, but I AM HUMAN, and sometimes earth ain’t easy. And today was one of them days.

Relax Already
Today’s card from Barbara Faisons Relax, Listen and Trust Your Inner Guidance Card deck is:
I rub my hands together, place them in my heart space and notice how I feel in my body.
And so I did. I felt warm and comforted. So I did it a couple of times and each time I do it, I feel loved.

The greatest love of all.

Heart Hugs
A heart hug is exactly what my Being craved today and it makes life better. See – it’s that easy to feel better in any moment.

TIP: You don’t have to be in a goofy space to give yourself a hug.

I intend make heart hugs a morning and bedtime routine. It’s the least I can to feel better more of the time.

Pulling this card today was perfect. The Universe has my back, front and is in my heart. Life IS good. And you know that!
Enjoy the song folks – and LIVE LIFE BETTER.


All Smiles

Now if this don’t make you smile…

Day 22 of The Forty Day Plan

I started doing 40 days of Focus on December 16, 2007 at a time in life where I felt lost. I didn’t know what to do next and I felt angry at how my life was going in spite of being “a good person”.

Forty days of focus wasn’t a divine invention of my own, but it was divine intervention in my life. Divine because I was at the right place physically, – my mom’s nursing my broken heart, and emotionally at a place where my heart was soft enough to receive the challenge to pick something and do it for forty days.

I created the The Forty Day Plan after doing 40 days of focus for four years, combining other tools I found that help us LIVE LIFE BETTER. You can read more about here: Here I Go Again

Relax, Listen and Trust Your Inner Guidance Cards by Barbara J Faison

We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same. – Carlos Castaneda.


The card inspiration for today is: I SMILE at MYSELF from Barbara Faisons Relax, Listen and Trust Your Inner Guidance Card deck.

I feel good about the person I AM right now. I feel good that in spite of setbacks, disappoints, upsets, and losses, that I smile often and for no other reason than KNOWING that all of my journey, past, future and PRESENT are about GROWTH.

I smile at myself because I KNOW things are always working out for me.
I smile at myself because I’m Human and even when I don’t know how in the $^%& this @*#& is gonna work out, that my part is to BELIEVE WHAT I KNOW, and let the UNIVERSE do it’s thing.

Enjoy this song…and LIVE LIFE BETTER!


It’s A Turn Off

Day 21 of The Forty Day Plan

When I think about kicking back and relaxing, it never involves turning off my phone.
Now I’m not attached to my phone. I will put it down and walk away mostly because it’s inconvenient to hold when I’m doing life stuff like cleaning, gardening, cooking, etc.

But it is a fact that I never turn off my phone and just tying those words make me go hmmmm and WHY?

Today’s Card: I turn off my device for 15 minutes.

I really wasn’t expecting this card from Barbara Faison’s Relax, Listen and Trust Your Inner Guidance Card deck today. But as usual, it inspires me to take a deeper dive into my relationship with “devices”.

Earlier I said I’m not attached to my phone but when I’m kicked back and relaxing, I usually have the phone close by and I may even engage with it while watching a movie, writing an article, or eating food. And why is that? Am I addicted to my phone?

The Forty Day Plan helps you FOCUS YOUR ATTENTION

I didn’t turn my phone off earlier today but I will do it soon. Today my family member was having surgery a couple of state’s away and I was anxiously waiting for updates and because I told my sister to call me anytime.
Well I got my update. All is well. And Fifteen minutes is not eternity. I will incorporate turning off my phone more often because I don’t like to feel controlled by anything or anybody. And even cell phones need a break.
Fifteen minutes – no phone, no laptop, no TV. Just Me and that feels good.

Enjoy Life Folks
