What if You Loved YourSelf

What would happen if you started to love yourself, I mean –

r e a l l y   l o v e   y o u r   s e l f  in a way you never have before –

What would happen if you started to believe even for a moment that you are deserving, worthy, magnificent, spectacular and perfect just the way you are. That you are enough, creative, loving, good, the perfect size, have the perfect shape and you don’t need to do anything more to come to that special place of loving yourself.

buddah quote 1

That to love yourself you don’t have to apologize, feel guilty, need permission; give up your own needs to fill someone else’s.

Much too often we put ourselves last on the list, our children come first, the spouse comes first, the job comes first, the friend, family, parents, other obligations, all come first. We worry about being egotistic, conceited, not caring or good enough.  We worry about meeting someone else’s expectations of us and looking good in someone else’s eyes, and… In the end we feel depleted, out of breath, run down, depressed, resentful…

What would happen if you poured real love unto yourself and if you let that love shine in your whole body?  What if your love for yourself would be so great that you couldn’t contain it and you would have to let it pour out of yourself to others?

Imagine what it could be like if you were totally and completely in love with yourself.

If you dared to declare I  L O O O O O O O V E  M E E E E E E E E.

Imagine if you could love everyone else and still love yourself more.

What would happen?

What would your life look like – if you became your own best, best friend.  Had compassion for yourself. What if you decided that you matter, that you’re important, that you are precious?  Embraced yourself, hugged yourself and remembered that you are sacred and honored yourself.

Where on the to do list would you place yourself?

You are magnificent and divine and deserving of your own self love.

What would it be like if – you honored you, if you were your own possession unto yourself.  If you released yourself and let yourself off the hook, put yourself first, loved yourself unconditionally, forgave yourself, only held on to thoughts that uplift you and let go of all the thoughts that don’t.

If you just plain loved yourself – what would happen???

Blessings

Are You Holding Back from Sharing Your Gifts and Talents

We each have something special and extraordinary to share with the world but, some of us even when we know our purpose, are still waiting for that special moment, and perfect time, because we believe that we still don’t know enough.  So we’re waiting for when we will know more, be ready more, be brave more, achieve more… I can tell you that if you think that way, than that special moment may not come.  It took me years to finally step forward, to open up and be strong enough to say – I know enough, that I can do this, I am ready.

quote picasso

We’re always evolving there is always more to know than what you know right now, and the spiral never ends, there are always more doors to open and walk through.  There are always higher levels of consciousness to uncover, and if you want to share your gifts, don’t wait, share them just as you are right now, the world needs to have your gifts.  You’re here for a purpose and you came with your own unique story, gifts and talents.

Your story is important.  Your gifts are important.  Your talents are important.

You don’t need another course, read another book, do another retreat, or wait another minute – all you need is your brave self to step forward and empower you to let go and just do it.  Share your special, spectacular gifts with the world.  And as you do, you will grow, you will evolve, the universe will fill you with more and you will reach higher levels of conscious bliss.

Unwrap your gifts and share them with the world.  You got this!!!

So are you sharing fully your gifts?  If not, what’s holding you back?  What do you think you still need before you can bring your gifts and talents out to the world.  Please share your thoughts in the comments bellow, love to hear from you.

Blessings

Which Oracle is Calling to You

I’m creating a 44 oracle card deck *Magical Journey* and I’m so excited to share with you four of my oracles.  At first I thought they would all follow the same look, but as I’m discovering they each have their own distinct feel, look and vibrancy.

These oracles ask you to enter into your own inner sanctuary. That place where your wisdom lies. Where you can cross over thresholds into wonder. Where the mystery of this universe is waiting for you to unravel it.  So sit still, open your heart, listen and allow yourself to be taken into your inner journey –

Let the oracles speak to you, pick the one that is pulling at you, the words and images are meant to awaken you – reflect on them, recognize them, go beyond the basic meaning of the word that you’re familiar with.  Unravel it’s gifts – it holds magic for you.  You may want to start by looking the word up in the dictionary to refresh your knowledge of it.  Listen within, what feelings arise from this word, are they good, do they evoke fear, don’t stop the feelings let them rise let them guide and show you their energy, their mystery.

Only you can open the doors within…

oracle 1

oracle 3

oracle 2

oracle 5

And in the end I’m not sure if all of these will be a part of my final oracle deck, but for now they seem to and I hope you have fun with them.

I really would love it if you would let me know how the card you chose touched you. What magic did you uncover? How did it guide you?  Please share in the comments below or you can connect with me privately, I’d love to know.

Blessings from the Oracles

April a Month of Inspired Creativity

Last month I decided to challenge myself and create something every day in April.  OK it may not happen every day since I already missed the very first day.  I don’t know why but I totally forgot that yesterday was April 1, even though my son played an April fools joke on me, and yes I fell for it, I still forgot and I didn’t create anything.  But, in my defense, in the morning I was busy getting ready for Easter Sunday with family.  The food was delicious as always, and I had a really great time seeing everyone and I got to meet our new sweet baby girl her name is Layna Rae.  And yes, I can’t believe myself I didn’t take any pictures, but I’ll get one and post at another time.

One reason why I wanted to create something every day in April is because last year I decided to create a 44 card oracle deck “Magical Journey”   It all came to me in one moment, and it’s been a process of love.  I already have several cards which I can’t wait to post and share with you.

day 1

I signed up for a year long course, Soulful Scribe, given by Belle Coeur  Today I got the first email, and the theme for this month’s contemplation is all about “cultivating and nurturing your listening heart.”  While reading I was inspired to create this card – listen to your heart!  It just may wind up being one of my “Magical Journey” oracles.

Not to worry I won’t overload you with my daily creations, but I will update every so often.

If you feel inspired, I’d love it if you will join me. No obligation.  Doesn’t have to be anything big, it could be a picture you were inspired to take that made you feel good.  A quote you read that sparked a feeling in you.  Or something you wrote.  Feel free to post your inspiration here in the comments bellow, love to see it.

Inspired Blessings
