Empowering Words to Self

I sometimes post to my FB account (here) and to my Instagram account (here) but I don’t share it here with you.  So, I decided to share with you this, note to myself, because sometimes I tend to forget how POWERFUL I am.

i am

I AM VALUABLE – BRAVE – COURAGEOUS!!!

I’ve written it out on sticky notes and placed one on my fridge, one on my computer, and one on my bathroom mirror so I can see it throughout the day, first thing in the morning when I wake, and last thing at night before going to bed.

Empower yourself with uplifting words – you deserve it!

Blessings

Finding Wonder and Joy in Every Day

When I pull up the shades and this is what I see, it makes my soul sing with joy.

A few days ago I fell and by some divine miracle I didn’t hurt my surgery knee, (from which I’m still not fully recovered,) nor did I  completely kill myself.  I am bruised and still feel the fall, but I’m OK.  It’s been four months since the surgery, and I haven’t been able to really go outside and walk around looking for wonder to photograph.

I started off this year with the word “mindfulness” and as the year progressed two other words attached themselves to me, “joy” and “wonder”.  And so far it’s been a real gift to find joy and wonder in the everyday things.  This morning I pulled up the shade and I was immediately struck by this gorgeous view.   I usually don’t photograph airplanes, nor are there many flying over my house, but there it was, the sky the airplane the trees the colors, I could feel the beauty and the view just hit me, a gift to my senses.

Wonder and joy are all around us, they are in our every day no matter where we are, we can find it if we’re open to it.  I feel joy washing the pots I used to cook my dinner in, I love feeling the warm water run through my fingers.  I feel great joy cleaning my kitchen after dinner, feeling grateful for another end of a day and leaving it clean and ready for the morning.

The most important part to bringing a moment of joy and wonder into our day is to want to.  It’s our choice, we get to decide, we can set our intention to be mindful, and open to see wonder in the things that we do or look at every day.

Do you look for a moment of wonder and joy in your days? Come and join in the fun and share your moment, I’d love to know.

Wonder Joy Blessings

The Universe is Always Responding to Us and Guiding Us

We live in a glorious Universe that is always communicating with us and is always giving us what we ask for.  The thing is that we’re not always aware of this, and whether we know this consciously or not, the Universe is always responding to us.  When we keep ourselves open, believe, have faith in that it will be given to us, and know without a doubt that what we ask for will appear – we will see it.   For me, I don’t always see what is right in front of me (LOL) that’s why when I ask for something, I always ask that the Universe make it so clear that there’ll no mistaking that this is the answer.

I’ve been asking for a book that will open my heart and yesterday while looking at Five Minute Friday on Instagram, an online writing community that I like to follow, I noticed this book on their page that attracted me, so I immediately went to Amazon to check it out.  When I hit enter, the second that it came up, my entire body started to tingle.  That’s not something you can make yourself feel.   And not just a slight tingling, and not just on my left side, where I’ve experienced it before,  but this was a tingling that was in my entire body and it was so strong that there was no way I could miss it.  I stopped what I was doing, closed my eyes, and just sat with this vibration that was electrifying in me.

There is no  doubt in my mind that the Universe guided me to this book, I didn’t even need to read the excerpt to know that there’s something magical and special here and I need to read.

Have you had an experience that was so obvious to you that you couldn’t ignore it?  Please feel free to share, I’d love to know.

Look Into Yourself You already Know

WOW! It’s August already.   Starting August with a reminder that you already have everything you need to know inside of you.  Turn inward ask the answers will come.

There are times when I really question all that I know, and I get stuck in a place where I just don’t believe that I can, or that I am, and what I know.  A couple of days ago when I was writing in my journal, questioning myself, these words came out of me and appeared on the page, and when I read them back to myself, I knew these are the words of my higher-self, my inner Goddess, letting me know that I do know.  I didn’t see it at first but later that evening I had a AHA moment, that revealed the wisdom.  She said…

hello august

deep in your soul you know

you know what you want

you know what you need

you know how it is

you know why you know how you know where and what and who

deep in your soul, you know – you know who YOU are

you know it all

deep in your soul you’re perfect, you’re pure love, you’re magnificent you’re ageless

you’re brilliant

you’re whole

you’re the light of the Universe

deep in your soul you hold forgiveness without judgement

deep in your soul you’re the one

deep in your soul angels are singing your song

deep in your soul – you know!

August Blessings

July A Message from Hummingbird

I love pulling a Tarot or Oracle card on the first of each month and letting it be a guiding energy for the month.  On 7/1 I asked what energy do I need for this month and Hummingbird showed up and OMG absolutely perfect, just what I needed a reminder of.

When Hummingbird shows up it’s a reminder that we need to bring joy into our days, to lighten up, take ourselves out of a rut we may be in.  Hummingbird also reminds us to look at our energy levels and that we need to raise our vibration, a good question to ask ourselves is – are we wasting our energy on worry, fear, on not having enough?  And when this magical bird appears we can expect synchronicities to happen.  Hummingbirds also symbolize healing, agility, playfulness and this is just a few things.

For me, I have a tendency to fall into the place of ‘serious’ and not even realize it.  And right now, as I’m going through this recovery from surgery, let me tell you it’s not hard at all to go day after day and not be aware of that I’m missing the little things that bring great joy into my day.  So for Hummingbird to show up, what a blessing.

So this is my intention for this month, to make myself aware to bring joy into every day. Doesn’t matter what it is, putting my feet up and drinking a cup of tea and feeling the joy in it.   Listening to the birds chirping in the morning.  Or buying myself flowers…Whatever it is, I’ll be bringing joy intentionally to my days even if it is for just a couple of moments.

When we set the intention and become aware, we can find a moment of sweetness in every day.  If you resonate with Hummingbirds message, join me in intentionally bringing a moment of joy into your every day, it will make a difference in your wellbeing.  Let me know what you think, leave a comment, I love to know.

This beautiful card is from the Mystical Shaman Oracle card deck by, Alberto Violloldo, Colette Baron-Reid, & Marcela Lobos.
