Learning to Embrace my Imperfections

I pulled this card today, and I wanted to share it with you because it’s the perfect message right now.  It asks “What can you release to connect to the source of your power?…”  It’s perfect because I’ve been beating myself up over having put my foot in my mouth a couple of days ago, and I’m still feeling bad over it and I need to release that out of me so I can connect with my inner power.  Can’t do it if I’m holding on to my mishap, and putting myself down with negative self talk.

Sometimes I say something, or do something without thinking, it just comes out of me, and later it hits me and I’m like OMG!!! I can’t believe I said that or did that.  When that happens I have a habit of beating myself up and making myself crazy with negative self talk.  I should have known better.  Whatever possessed me?  Why didn’t I stop myself?  I should have…and I’m thinking about how what I said, or did, is perceived by others or how it affected others and what must they think of me, and what can I do now to change it, and…OMG I just can’t believe myself… And the beating up on myself goes on and on…and all it does is make me anxious, stressed out and I feel even worse.

This is part of my growing and honestly, learning to embrace my imperfections has not been easy and I haven’t found that one quick fix yet.  And hey, if you know of one please let me know because I’ll take all the help I can get here.

So here’s the wisdom this card offers – It’s during these times that I have to stop and remind myself that stuff happens and I’m not perfect.  I’m still working on myself and instead of beating myself up, I should ask myself how is this barrage of negative self talk helping? Am I empowering myself right now?  Look at it, learn from it, forgive myself and release it so – I can stand in my power.

If you relate to this message, I’d love to hear from you, feel free to share.

The featured card is from the, Elena Brower Practice You, Daily Awakening Deck.

Every Moment Holds Possibilities

Every moment holds a richness within it that is waiting to be unlocked. A world of new possibilities, of unlimited potential, of opportunities, of miracles and magic. Of feelings yet unknown, of experiences yet to uncover. Of great mysteries to be unveiled.possibilities3

Every moment offers us the possibilities to change our life, to uplift ourselves, to look at what we want to hold on to and what we want to let go of.

Every moment is filled with new choices we can make, a new path we can take, a new project we can start.

In every moment we can nourish our souls, we can decide to…take another step towards our dream. Renew. Change. Become empowered.  Open a new door within.

With every moment we can –

Let go of judgment.

Leave toxic relationships.

Create a new vision for ourselves.

We can –

Dream bigger.

Forgive.

Accept.

Be gentle with our self.

Get curious.

Love.

In every moment lies the opportunity to open to our Great Mother and become the co-creators of our life together with Her.

In every moment lies endless possibilities…

Blessings

Making Real What You Really Really Want

When you have figured out what it is that you really really want…

Pink tulip.jpeg

Than invite commitment into your life and go after your ‘want’ with intention and determination.   Don’t just leave it lay for later or for tomorrow or for when after you read another book, take another class.  For when you will deserve it or lose 50 pounds.  Honor your ‘want’ now.  The more you commit and make the time for what you want, keep it in the front of your mind, see it inside of you, f e e l  it.  The more you think about it, write about it, dream it – the more the universe will put magical things along your way for your ‘want’ to become a reality.

When you really really know what it is that you want and you take action towards it, even small steps (and every step counts), when what you want is for your highest good and that of everyone else, than the entire universe will conspire to bring your ‘want’ into reality.

Red tulip.jpeg

You’ll see words or hear a conversation, or a song that will hold just the right message  that you needed to know right now.  Synchronicities will be abound.  Doors will open in places where you never knew they existed, the universe will arrange that.  The more you bring what you want into view into your mind into your sphere, the more solid your ‘want’ will become the more chance it has of manifesting.  You’re talking it, writing it, thinking it into being a reality and you need to do this without fear and complete trust and faith and belief that it is already so.  Every time you have doubt you’re pushing it away from you and every time you have love and faith and a sense of yes for it you’re bringing it closer to you.

Lots of tulips.jpeg

So yes, find out what it is you really really want and bring it to life, bring it forward.

Give thanks in advance for already having it, envision yourself in it, owning it, being inside of it, deserving it.  Go after it with determination and a willingness and openness to receive your ‘want’ because the magic of it all is that it already exists in the ethereal.  It is already so.  It’s already a part of you – your ‘want’ is just waiting for you to meet up with it.

So what are you doing to meet your ‘want’ into reality?  Let us know, love to hear.  And feel free to share this blog.

Grateful Blessings

Every Day We Can…

Every day is a new day to open our imagination, to invite our creativity, to mesmerize ourselves with the beauty that surrounds us – to be inspired.

Yellow sunflowers.jpeg

Every day is an opportunity to bless the world we live in, to bless someone, to bless ourself.

Every day we stand in the glory of our own majesty and we can open the doorway to the wisdom and the magic and the miracles that surround us, they will show up if we open our heart to them and expect them.

Every day invites us to look, smell, to find, to be our own authentic selves.

Morning sun.jpeg

Every day we stand empowered at the helm of new opportunities.  Everyday we stand at the edge of a new beginning where the world is laid out at our feet waiting for us to pick up our desires, our dreams, our wants, our needs, what we crave.

Orange little flowers.jpeg

Every day we can say YES to the rhythm that wants to unfold.  To our own inner gifts that we’ve been given.  Every day we can stand in the power of our own truth and honor who we came here to be.

Every day we choose how we want , what we want, what we give, what we receive.  Every day we decide fear, love, hate, jealousy, generosity.  We can believe, trust, surrender, forgive, be happy…  Every day we decide if we want to honor our bodies, our mind and our spirit and nourish ourselves with healthy choices.

Every day we can open the gateway and take the first step that starts a new journey.  We can create a new vision, we can invite the mystery in, we can live in grace.

Every day we can empower ourselves, we can know that we are the power of our own imagination – unravel our own self, break down our walls.  Every day we can open up, allow our higher self, follow our own intuition and say YES – YES – to our blessed glorious lives…YES. YES. YES.

What are you saying YES to today?  Leave a comment, share your yes here, love to chat and please feel free to share this post.

Every day blessings

An Afternoon in Downtown El Paso, TX

I had such a great time today with my son and granddaughter, we went to downtown El Paso  to walk around and I was able to take pictures.  I want to learn street photography and so this is my first attempt at it.   I love the downtown area, love the energy, love the look, love the people,  I love to look at all the merchandise out in front of the stores as you walking by and I love the buildings.

The Plaza hotel in downtown El Paso is a true example of Art Deco 1920 style.  It was built for the Hilton Hotel chain.  This was the eight hotel in the Hilton chain and was considered a luxury hotel.

A little modern mixed in with the old.  There are many beautiful more modern buildings around.

Street shot.  It was difficult to take these shots because the streets were crowded today since it’s Sunday and I felt a bit awkward doing it. (need to get used to this)  And now looking at my photos I know what I want to shoot next time.

The Camino Real Hotel opened in 1912 and its lobby was known as “the million-dollar lobby” because of all the gold leaf and pink marble.

I love the art work here on the gates, the store closed, went out of business.

All I heard was Spanish and it really took me back to when I was a child living in Colombia and going to the stores with my mother, and also took me back to the Bronx, she would have loved walking here today.  I felt her with me the whole time.

This caught my eyes.  Our Lady of Guadalupe who came to me in a dream five years ago and is in my heart, and bear, my animal spirit guide, right in front of the entrance to a store.

Mayoreo means wholesale.

Store El paso.jpeg

I couldn’t get a better shot of this poster inside a store window.  El Paso 104 years ago.  It was considered “bustling and dynamic” “with impressive buildings and a thriving business district.”

Old El paso.jpeg

And in the end we enjoyed a fantastic meal at the Pot au Feu Restaurant.  Hummus & Naan, Caesar salad, grilled veggie sandwich, lamb burger and chicken nuggets with french fries.  Delicious.

Of course when I got home I was exhausted and I took a 2 hour nap.

Feel free to share, leave a comment, love to chat with you.

Blessings from El Paso.
