An Invitation for 2019

My intention for 2019… a sweeter life.

This year I’m inviting  all of us to remember that we’re already cherished and loved by the one greatest universal force.

We’re invited to love ourselves without limitations and without guilt and as deeply as we can.

new year

We’re invited to shed the light on who we truly are – magnificent – deserving – worthy – loving – healthy – amazing – resilient… humans having a life here, just one of many.  Experiencing the spectrum of what life can bring us.  Learning to navigate through the rough waters, our fears and the sun-shiny days.

We’re invited to remember that we are more powerful than what we think.  That we can overcome, remove the walls, and reign supreme over our lives.  We are the magic wands of our life. (here)

This is my prayer for 2019, my invitation – to share what I’m inspired to create and what I know about living a sweeter life.  To cherish every moment even those that will have me fall off the wagon and into the pit, and the emotional break down ones, and that I can pull myself out and I can open my heart and be more and give more and receive more.  And that I can, and we all can, shine our light a lot brighter than what we are.

So I invite you to join me on this journey in 2019 and live the invitation of –

a sweeter life.

With gratitude and love – Happy 2019!!! Wishing all health, prosperity, happiness, love, magic and lots of blessings!!!

Mindful Pause – Breathe

As we lose ourselves in the hustle and business of our daily chores – our to do lists, our have to, our work, emails, shopping, our family, exercise, cooking…  As we rush to accomplish it all, we don’t pay attention to our breathing and we mostly take shallow breaths.  And we do it without thinking.  But today, make yourself conscious and become aware of your breathing.

As you go about your day, remember to just – b r e a t h e.

breathe

Pause for a moment, and mindfully take in a long deep breath.  Let it fill your lungs, and breathe all the way down into your belly, bring it in deep, as far in as you can.  Feel it filling your whole body, hold it for a couple of seconds, say thank you in your mind as you fill yourself with this wonderful beautiful air, and breathe out.

Pausing to breathe in mindfully and intentionally will energize you, open your senses, refresh you.  It will calm you and bring you to a more harmonious state within.

B r e a t h e!

Feel free to share your mindful breathe pause.  What did you do to remind yourself?  🙂

A Simple Way to Create a Little Altar

I love creating small altars that I can place around my home, they always fill me with great joy, like this little altar that I’m using as a table scape, that captures the season in a magical way for me.

inspire

You don’t have to spend a lot of money or go all fancy, just collect items that you already have.  Let yourself be guided by your spirit and put together things that are meaningful to you, and feels good to you.

I used a serving platter and put pine cones that I’ve had for a couple of years, some of my crystals, the green branches from the flowers I bought yesterday, three tea candles, something I always have in my home, and the inspiration rock I bought for 99 cents at Hobby Lobby.

Every time I walk by it, I stop and allow it to work its magic and I say thank you, or I’ll say a little blessing.  For me this is a sacred act of self-care, a moment in which I can get lost into and receive the gifts of Spirit.

I hope I’m inspiring you to create your own magical altar and I’d love it if you share it here in the comments.

Daily Mindful Pause

To connect with my inner self, I like to take a daily mindful pause.  I don’t plan this, I just set the intention for it and I open myself to receive the invitation from Spirit and  step into it.

Today my invitation for my mindful pause was this beautiful bouquet I bought at the store.  When I saw it, I was immediately drawn to it, I felt joy and holiday cheer and  couldn’t wait to come home and see what I was moved to create.

mindful pause

I love to lose myself in the mystery of the process.  Every time I’m inside that space of creative energy something happens, there’s a silence that I’m immersed in and I lose complete outer sense and become only aware of the now moment and the unfolding of an idea that through me is coming to life.

Love to hear from you, are you practicing a daily mindful pause, please feel free to share in the comments bellow 🙂

Mindful Pause Blessings

More Magic Every Day

When you become aware of what you need to nourish yourself every day, your life becomes more magical.  Ask yourself…

what do I need to do

to nourish

myself today?

nourish (1)

Maybe just five minutes of quiet time alone

Just a moment of rest or to reflect

A moment to bring yourself back to center

Maybe what you need is a nourishing meal

Drink water to flush your system out

Bring good thoughts to your mind

Stretch – Yoga – Exercise – Take a walk around your neighborhood

Forgive yourself

Praise yourself

Love yourself a little more today

Maybe you need to connect with your passion

Shine your light

Say no to a party you don’t want to attend

Believe in yourself

Have faith

Say yes to your life

Look inside yourself

Bring your awareness inward

Start a journal writing practice

What do you need to do to nourish yourself today?…

Blessings
