Let go of Pride

We live in a society which is obsessed with comparison and competition. We see it everywhere around us. Specially now that social media has become a platform where we see the details and events of people’s lives. Which can in some cases create unhealthy comparisons and a level of competition amongst us. We often want to feel better than, smarter than, richer than, prettier than etc…Wanting to have more than others in any way….makes us proud. And having pride in our hearts only brings a higher lever of comparison, unhappiness and lack of peace in our lives.
So, how can we get rid of comparison, competition and pride? We can humbly recognize the moments in which we feel above the rest, the moments in which we criticize, judge or compare others to ourselves or vice versa. Being truthful with ourselves and recognizing those moments in which we feel a level of competition towards others can allow us to see more clearly the things which we truly desire to change. We are in charge of bringing this cleansing into our lives! no one else will do this for us. When we are honest with ourselves and recognize the changes that must be made, we will feel a stronger sense of power to overcome our weaknesses and turn them into strengths in our lives.
The word of God teaches us that we should not covet, that with the same judgment with which we judge others we will also be judged and that we shouldn’t compare ourselves to others because God never compares us to one another. He loves us all the same! He sees us deeper than we can see ourselves and others.
2 Corinthians 10:12 Says:

For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.

Instead of comparing ourselves with others we should focus on making the changes that we would like to bring into our own lives. We should also remember to treat others as we would like to be treated, with more empathy, compassion, kindness, love and understanding. Realizing that we all come form different backgrounds, that no life is exactly the same, that God gave us each our own individual differences. Different talents and strengths to be developed and different things that we’ve had to experience and overcome in our lives and which in turn also make us who we are today.
So, when others mistreat us, offend us, are rude to us or when we notice comparison, competition and pride coming from others towards us. Let’s stop for a moment, take a deep breath and remind ourselves that we don’t know what that soul is experiencing or what they’ve had to go through….If we instead become “soul conscious” and react wisely by creating a spirit of compassion (which is not weakness but wisdom) and letting go of criticism toward that soul. Creating instead within ourselves a desire to accept, guide, love, empower and to help to heal ourselves and that soul as well. <3  We are here to be a positive influence on our own selves as well as for others. By doing this, we will feel the difference of how the way in which we react to the situations or people can change everything around us and inside of us! The choice is ours. We can wisely heal ourselves form comparison, pride and all negativity to then be able to heal and help others as well. 🙂 Having this knowledge makes us responsible for making those changes in our lives. When we create positive energy within ourselves we will radiate that light and positivity to others as well. So when the stimulus comes we will be prepared to reject the negative energies and turn them into positive ones for ourselves and for others. 
At the end of it all, we are all souls that come from the presence of God. We are all His children and coming from His presence, we have the capacity and the potential to overcome those moments of pride, comparison, competition or negativity. We can rise above them and move forward and upwards in the direction that will be for our own good. Remembering tat always trying to please God more than men will bring a higher sense of self esteem and wisdom that will help us to be better able to overcome our challenges and to treat others and ourselves as God would want us to do so. ??
Galatians 1:10

For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

Let’s seek to please God in all that we choose to do daily and to let go of all that is negative in our lives…We can only do this one day at a time. Let’s do our best today! <3
The spiritual goal for the week is to let go of criticism, comparison competition & pride! the goal is to go one entire day without talking about ourselves! 😉 But  to instead give compliments, be sincere with others and create room in our hearts to be selfless, more loving, kind, empathetic etc…Seriously! If any of you can do this for one day, Please write me back and tell me how it goes or what you feel etc! I would love to hear about it 🙂 cause this challenge is a tough one. But i still know we can do it!!! 🙂  When we focus on actually listening to others our hearts will be more open to have more love and empathy towards them…And we begin to realize that there’s no competition but instead we should all be rooting for each other in life and trying to help one another 🙂
The physical goal is to avoid processed foods this week. The more natural the better. Let’s push ourselves to put way the chips and the soda and try to replace those unhealthy foods with something that has a higher nutritional value for our bodies <3 remember, It’s only one day at a time! 🙂 Try just for today <3
Hope to see you guys in class tonight! I wish everyone could be there to feel the way that we feel after class. We make time for it because it makes a big difference in the way that we feel. It’s not just the cardio and the tonight but the combination of everything with meditation has been so renewing!!! Hope you can make it! See you at 7:15 🙂
God bless and have a wonderful uplifting day! ???
Love always,

Refuse the Negative! Be Grateful!

We all have a moments in which we focus on what we lack rather than on what we have. It’s easy for us to take for granted some of the blessings that surround us and at times we may be so used to having them, that we begin to see past them. We forget to see the little things that make our lives so richly blessed.✨ Like our family, friends, our relationship with God, our health, the ability to wake up each new day to see the sun and all of the wonderful creations around us. Sometimes we even forget to be grateful for the everyday things, like having running water, electricity, a bed to sleep on, a roof over our heads, food for ourselves and our families, transportation etc…We are surrounded by so many wonderful gifts that it would take forever to count them all…So, let’s not focus on what we lack but instead focus on how truly blessed we are to have so much in our lives.?

The Greek philosopher Epictetus said;

“He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.” ?

There’s wisdom in being thankful for what we have. There’s wisdom in letting go of what we’re expecting or lacking, and it is wise to live a life with a heart full of gratitude for everything that we’ve had in the past, for everything that we have now and for what which God will bring into our lives in the future.

Thomas S. Monson said;
“We can lift ourselves, and others as well, when we refuse to remain in the realm of negative thought and cultivate within our heart and attitude of gratitude.”?

I love what we can learn from that quote, Refusing to be negative in our lives is something That we all need to work on. Can we go an entire day without being negative? Without complaining or making negative comments about ourselves and others? Let’s make this our goal to refuse to be negative and to push away all that negativity out of our lives…We don’t need it! Instead, let’s replace the negative by filling ourselves with feelings of gratitude constantly. By doing so, we will notice a HUGE difference In the way that we feel!!! ?

Having a grateful heart brings joy and light into our lives which will overpower anything negative. Gratitude will bring more love, which will overpower or destroy feelings of pride, resentment or jealousy towards others. If we are truly grateful, we will have a desire to please God as a way of thanking Him for all of our blessings. And even though we will never be fully able to repay God for all that we have, all that He asks of us is that we are GRATEFUL for all that we have. We will notice that when we are grateful, our hearts will be softened, our words will change and our attitude of having a grateful heart will increase. It will heal our souls and bring peace as we let gratitude take over our hearts. ❤

Alma 7:23 says:
And now I would that ye should be humble, and be submissive and gentle; easy to be entreated; full of patience and long-suffering; being temperate in all things; being diligent in keeping the commandments of God at all times; asking for whatsoever things ye stand in need, both spiritual and temporal; always returning thanks unto God for whatsoever things ye do receive.?
So, let us all be Thankful for the incredible amount of blessings that God continually pours upon us. And with this gratitude to Him, let’s remind ourselves to do our very best to keep gratitude in our hearts daily and to remind others of how much God does for all of us. We can help those in need, by giving some of our material things and also helping them emotionally and spiritually. That our gratitude may be returned to God by our good deeds and that everything that we do will be done with love towards Him and those in our homes, our communities, our countries and around the world. That we may fill ourselves with goodness continually and that we may work to keep that feeling of gratitude inside each one of us internally. ? The choice is always ours, God will continue to bless us and to help us as our gratitude grows. His spirit fill our souls when we are grateful and it will not only lift us spiritually but it will bring more beauty into our lives and into the lives of those around us. 🙂
Our Spiritual goal for the week is: To refuse to be negative! When you notice negativity in your mind or conversations, push it away by thinking about something that you’re GRATEFUL for!!! let’s notice how often we can stop ourselves from thinking about what we’re lacking or from having negative thoughts and instead focusing our minds on all that we are blessed to have.Thanking God daily for all that He is constantly giving us….Because even our breath is a gift. By focusing on this goal for the week we will experience the difference of how cultivating an attitude of gratitude can change our days! 🙂 <3
Our physical goal for the week is: To push ourselves to do something for our physical health. Working out can be hard sometimes, but the truth is that if we don’t push ourselves to do it…nobody else is gonna do that for us. If you want to try to come to class tonight then, make it happen for yourself! don’t let anything else get in your way! just show up and once you’re there, i’ll take care of motivating you to move 😉 We will have awesome music, we’ll burn calories, take some time to tone and at the end we will end with the most relaxing meditation to leave us feeling renewed for the rest of the week. I hope you can make it! and if you bring a friend who has never been, your class is free! But I promise you that these will be the best $5 you will ever spend on yourself…You just have to come see how amazing you’ll feel afterwards. <3
Have a blessed, wonderful and grateful week! ? I’m thankful to have each and every one of you and I hope that you know that I love you and I care about you.If you need a friend or someone to talk to…I’m here for you. Have a Happy thanksgiving!!!
Love always,

Create Peace and Joy

With everything that’s been going on in our country and around the world, it’s easy to let those circumstances affect our mood and our own environment. We see people who are upset, full of anger, frustration, and with a lack of patience and love for others. 🙁

We usually look at society to have an idea of what’s going on around us, yet we forget that society is also made up of the inner feelings and frustrations of others. Unfortunately, we allow society to influence us as well, making us feel the same way that everyone else is feeling. We often forget to just stop for a moment to take a look ?inside ourselves. Instead we are spending too much time looking at outside sources like the news, celebrities, social media etc…And in some cases we let them determine how we should feel. We forget that WE are the ones who ALLOW those things that we see or hear to upset us and affect us. If more of us took the time to be quiet, to turn off the distractions, opinions of others etc…To just take some time to think in peace, letting go of the fear of looking within ourselves and taking a moment to just calm our minds, think and meditate. If we did this daily in our lives for even just 5 minutes! We would be better able to realize which things we must let go of, we would see those things that are not letting us progress and we would realize what is stopping us from feeling more peace an joy in our lives. If we can take a few minutes to do this exercise, it will not only strengthen us internally but we will be better able to see and recognize whats going on within ourselves.

Most of us wake up to read the news and to see what’s going on around the world, from the internet, social media, the news etc. But starting our day like that can affect our emotions from early on in the day and it wont allow us to start our day on a very positive note. Whereas If we were to read or listen to an uplifting message each morning before even looking at the news or social media, our whole day would start out and feel a lot different. And if we took that uplifting message one step further to actually take it in fully by keeping that message with ourselves during our day. To then be able to use what we learned and to actually put it into ACTION and to practice the new wisdom that we have gained. And having learned something uplifting for ourselves, we can then go out and share it with others. By filling ourselves with all that is good and positive we will be better able to spread more of what the world NEEDS right now. Which is an outpouring from us of GOODNESS! Of messages that will help us to be a little more uplifting, positive and to spread all that is good and loving to our friends, family and to the whole world as children of God that we ALL are!?

It’s always good to know what’s happening around the world…But it’s most important to know what’s going on inside our internal world!  Our own world of thoughts, feelings, believes, perception, opinions etc…We must work on taking care of our inner world first!!! On creating and bringing in to my own soul my own peace, on keeping my thoughts clean, my feelings positive towards others and on getting rid of all that is negative etc…When we work on our inner selves, it will not only help us to feel great inside but it will be radiated to our outside world as well. ??

All around the world people want to create peace and bring universal harmony yet most of us are not peaceful within ourselves! We choose to hold on to negative feelings towards others or to say or do things are can hurt others etc…causing our own world to not have peace inside of it. We also fight to have clean air free of pollution, yet we are polluting it with bad thoughts or negative actions or feelings that comes from us towards others :(…These are just some of the things that we can choose to change in ourselves and to have the humility to do so will give us greater strength and power to continue working on ourselves daily.

The most Important work we can do is the work that we do within ourselves! ?Success inside of ourselves is more important than success outside of ourselves. When our energy inside is clean, our thoughts are pure, we are able to be more loving, it becomes easier to let go of things that are negative and that we have been holding onto for a while. We are more forgiving, It helps us to begin to see the good in others and be able to look past our differences. Having a desire to create peace within ourselves, will create happiness from within! not controlled by the negativity of the “outside world” but created and controlled by ourselves internally! always thinking about our our highest purpose, potential and good on this earth.
This helps us to see that we are not dependent on outside sources to make us happy. What happens outside of us doesn’t have to determine what goes on inside of us! It all has to do with the way that we choose to react to those stimulus that are constantly being throw at us. We can choose to let them in and affect us or choose to leave them out! Some people depend on material things to bring them happiness Money $, possessions etc.. Others want recognition or praise to bring them joy. or some say, this or that makes me happy, a movie, a meal, an event etc… Otherwise, if they don’t have those things they’re not happy! 🙁 We don’t need to depend on outside sources that only bring temporary happiness…We can create for ourselves internally lasting happiness and a feeling of peace and joy  that is not determined by any outside stimulus. Not a person, the reactions or opinions of others, the thoughts or anything negative that tries to come inside our world can enter without our permission. We choose what we allow INSIDE and we also determine what comes outside of ourselves. If our inside energy is good, then our outside will also be the same. It all connects and we will feel truly successful within ourselves which will bring Happiness and joy without the need of any material, praise seeking or anything else that the “outside world” says is important! The joy will be internal. And the more we work on ourselves the bigger the difference and the strength that we’ll feel! making us feel comfortable, stable, peaceful, and that our thoughts and actions are in harmony with each other. 🙂

We can create this for ourselves and if we have the desire we have access to receive the help of God for our lives. We can reach out to Him and ask Him for strength to be able to better ourselves and have a more joyful, peaceful life that will not only change our inner world but also the world around us! 🙂  We are here to be a light to the world! To do good for others and to live the best life we can. God will bless us and help us because He loves us! I know that with all my heart ❤

Our spiritual goal is to create peace and joy within ourselves that can not only help us internally but also be radiated to those that surround us.

And or physical goal for the week is to take time to be quiet, to meditate and to exercise to get rid of stress and negativity. <3

I hope that everyone has a peaceful and wonderful day having gratitude for all that we have. Let’s take care of selves from within and notice the difference! 🙂 Tonight in class we will have a wonderful meditation to help us with this!…Hope you can make it not only for the workout but to renew your mind and your spirit to be more positive. Hope to see you there!

Love you all!

Lili ?


How often are we letting our attitudes be determined by others or by the world around us? We often forget that we have the freedom to choose how we will react to every single situation that comes into our lives. The power to CHOOSE comes from within us!!! We decide how we react to the the situations or people around us. Nobody makes us do or feel anything. The choice is always ours and according to what we decide in our minds….so it will be.
Our father in heaven wants us to have a positive attitude. Our minds should be filled with all that is good, uplifting, that brings knowledge wisdom and strength to overcome our daily challenges. There’s enough evil in the world for us to bring that stuff into our lives or to add to it with our negative attitudes. 🙁 Instead, we should have a strong desire within ourselves to fill our lives with all that is good and positive!! ?  We must push away the negativity,  all the evil or anything that makes us feel uneasy or uncomfortable…We are here on this earth not to let those evil things influence us, but to push them away or if possible eliminate them from our lives. Therefore being able to fill our minds, hearts and attitudes with peace, joy, love, forgiveness, wisdom and humility. So that we may RADIATE that light that we have brought into ourselves with others. ☀
Romans 12:2
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
I want to memorize this scripture! This is what feeding our minds with positivity is all about!  It’s about bringing the truth of God into our lives and that we may renew and align our minds with God’s will. I know that He desires for us to be positive, to be able to choose that for ourselves and to be a source of good in the world! To SEE THE GOOD that is around us even during the hardest or darkest times…And specially to remember that we are not alone on this journey. He wants us to know and remember that we have the help of our Savior and our Father in Heaven who both want us to live righteously and to fill our homes, communities, our country and all of our surroundings with good and peace that can only come from having God in our lives. The day will come that all of our hard work will pay off! God is always watching us and is so proud of when we react in a godlike manner to our situations that come into our lives. ?
So, let’s be strong! ?In what God has given us! continuing to learn from the wisdom He provides and from all of the positive things that surround us. At the end of it all, God is the one who will prevail! And our desire is to be close to Him and to be a light like him will be rewarded and we will feel GREAT now and then! ??Let’s Trust in God! Push away the bad, bring in ALL the peace and the Good! Expect the BEST and BE YOUR BEST in the sight if God. ?
Our spiritual goal for the week is to have a positive mental attitude! If at any point we start feeling negative, lets stop ourselves, go outside for a minute, take a few deep breaths, think of the things we are grateful for and choose what is the most beneficial way to react to the situation…I’m working on trying to change my attitude for the next 30 days! 😉 you can join me if you can, so we can see the difference that a good attitude will make. ?
Our physical go for the week is to add some resistance to our exercises. Maybe walking with light weights or using your own body weight for some exercises, will not only strengthen and tone our muscles but it will also help us to prevent osteoporosis. Plus, exercising is one of those things that will help our minds be positive and feel great! 🙂 Let’s aim for at least 30 mins of exercise 3 days this week. 🙂
I hope that you’re able to make it to class tonight at 7!! The goal is to be able to turn off our brains from the every day and all of the distractions and to do something great for ourselves! To be able to exercise, tone, meditate and relax. And to be able to strengthen ourselves not only physically but also emotionally, mentally and spiritually. ?
Love you all! Have a blessed and wonderful day and let’s keep a prayer in our hearts today for our beautiful country [?] and that this election may be in the hands of God and for what He desires. ?
Love always,
Lili ?

Pray Always

Think of the ways in which the enemy stops us from praying. Is it distractions?, Social Media? Internet? ,Tv?, waking up late? other responsibilities?, Or just laziness?…There will always be distractions that try to stop us from praying. That is the enemy’s goal! He wants us to be as far away from God as he can get us to be. He knows that if we have a relationship with God this will weaken his influence in our lives and because he fears those who are close to God, he will try as hard as he can to stop us from building a relationship with God or even just talking to him, period.
If we are able to recognize the ways and tools which the enemy uses to create this separation from us and God, then we must fight against it with a stronger desire to push away the opposition and to do ALL THAT IS IN OUR POWER TO COMMUNICATE WITH GOD OUR FATHER. This will bring strength and peace into our lives and a stronger desire to come closer to God daily. ?
2 Nephi 32:8-9, Says;
And now, my beloved brethren, I perceive that ye ponder still in your hearts; and it grieveth me that I must speak concerning this thing. For if ye would hearken unto the Spirit which teacheth a man to pray, ye would know that ye must pray; for the evil spirit teacheth not a man to pray, but teacheth him that he must not pray.
But behold, I say unto you that ye must pray always, and not faint; that ye must not perform any thing unto the Lord save in the first place ye shall pray unto the Father in the name of Christ, that he will consecrate thy performance unto thee, that thy performance may be for the welfare of thy soul. 
By giving in to the spirit of God which teaches us to pray and to stay close to God. We will notice how different our days will be if we start our day with a prayer. Having that quiet time of communication and mediation with God will allow us to be better able to deal with the stress and different situations that may arise during our day. We will feel differently just by knowing that we started our day with a prayer and we will be able to acknowledge more clearly the hand of God in our lives to protect us, inspire us and take care of us during our day. Our Father in Heaven isn’t just there for when we NEED him! 🙁 I’m know that He loves to hear from us every day! During the good times or the bad times. That we may ask Him to consecrate our performances and everything that we do, from cleaning our house to working or doing all of our activities…That He will allow those things to be for our welfare, for the benefit of our soul, and that all our activities may all be dedicated to Him! ??
Our spiritual goal for the week is to recognize the things or oppositions that are getting in our way from allowing us to talk to our Heavenly Father. To push away the opposition and to make the changes to put God first in our lives. The goal is to pray each morning and to have a prayer in heart during the day as we dedicate our activities to Him and for the benefit of our souls. If you have an experience that teaches you something from this week, I would love to hear it!!! ?
Our physical goal for the week is To take it easy with the Candy! lol 😉 It’s tempting to have so much!…So, our goal is to have good self control this week. Replace the sugar with a fruit or raisins or anything that’s a healthier choice.:) We’ll be proud of our willpower! ??
Tonight at 7 we’re gonna burn calories, tone and mediate to leave us feeling not only physically strong but also emotionally and mentally ready for the rest of our week. I hope you guys can make it and be able to push alway the opposition that gets in the way for us to be able to do something amazing for body, mind and spirit. ??

Hope to see you there! 🙂 Have a blessed and wonderful day and I want you guys to know that I love you and that I pray for you always! I’m so thankful to have each and every one of you in my life. & Thank you so much for reading these little weekly messages! ?✨Hope we can keep them in our hearts and try to do better each week 🙂 ❤️xoxo

Love always,

Lili ?
