A Message of Hope from the Universe

I was looking through Instagram last week, not really paying any particular attention to anything, I’m still recovering from the surgery and my concentration right now is very minimal, when suddenly these words just jumped out at me and struck me – this too shall pass – Oh WOW!!! I turned off my phone and  I quickly wrote them down so i don’t forget them.  I sat there holding them inside of me, allowing them to linger taking in their meaning and their magick.

These words were exactly what I needed.  I’ve been so caught up in the web of this recovery, that I’m not seeing the light.  Mostly I have no energy and I’m dragging through the days.  In my last blog post (here) I wrote about being deliriously happy because I can drive myself now, and I am but, I’m far from recovered.  This recovery is not a walk in the park, I’m not back to my normal self and I haven’t been able to get back into my daily routine, into a rhythm that supports and uplifts my life every day.  I know it will take time but I wasn’t remembering this when those words screamed out at me.

When we’re going through a rough patch, no matter what it is, a divorce, a recovery, an emotional time, we don’t remember that things will get better, that we will get through this, that we will be ok.  It’s hard to see an end, it’s hard to envision light when in the dark.  But, the truth is that whatever we’re going through, is not going to last forever, it will get better.  We live in a universe that is always changing and moving and so are we, that’s just how it is.  And regardless of anything, as this amazing Universe reminded me, the truth is that no matter what –

this too shall pass.

I’m carrying these words with me, empowered and hopeful with the knowing that I’ll be ok and I’m hoping that it brings you comfort as it does for me – knowing that whatever you’re going through is not forever and will pass.

I’ve Reached a Milestone in My Recovery

OMG I can’t stand it I’m so deliriously happy. YEAHHHH!!!! Freedom!!! I drove myself to Target yesterday for the first time since my surgery and I feel like I have crossed a milestone.  It’s been six weeks and I’m not going to lie to you, this recovery has been kicking my butt.  I’m finally now starting to get back to my awesome self.  I’m still not 100% recovered, I’m released from therapy but I still have a ways to go, and it’s getting easier now.  Walking every day and using the stationary bike is what’s helping me to heal my knee.

And being able to drive myself to the store, well that is just a whole other level of joy – it’s total heaven.

A Little Daily Reminder – Smile

Every day you have the choice of how you nourish yourself.

Here’s one way to nourish your body, mind and spirit – smile.

A smile has an undeniable transformative power, even a fake smile can transform your mood, you will feel an immediate change.

heartsThere are times that I just get caught up in the every day stuff and a smile is the furthest thing from my mind.  But as soon as I put a smile on, everything changes, I feel my face light up, not just my face but my whole-body lights up.  My feelings, my mood, whatever it is, the heaviness lifts out of me and everything changes.

The thing with a smile is that you cannot have a smile on your face and feel angry or sad…just like you cannot have a frown and feel happy.

Today give yourself the gift of a smile. Walk out your front door with a smile on your face, drive your car with a smile on, walk into your work with a smile on.  Text with a smile on your face.  If you have an appointment, bring that smile with you.  Exercise with a smile on.  Have your coffee with a smile on.  Talk on the phone with a smile on, the energy of your smile will come through and the other person will feel it.  Whatever you do today – keep a smile on.

A smile is also contagious, rarely do I look at someone that I pass by in the street, or the supermarket, wherever I may be, with a smile on my face and they don’t smile back.  And the thing about a smile is that you may have greatly affected that person, it may have been just what they needed in that moment, that small bit of a smile that made them feel love and transformed their day.

Try it out, just for today, put a smile on your face and leave it there.  Let yourself feel the happy – smile.

Blessings

Journal Entry – Divine Feminine

These are the words that came to me today when I saw the word “Feminine” for today’s prompt for the May Magick 2019 that I’m participating in.

I didn’t always see myself as feminine and having worth and being special.

I didn’t always honor myself, love myself, create sacred space for me.  I didn’t know about angels and spirit guides and animal spirits, faeries and Gaia.  Or, ritual and prayer.  And I didn’t know about Her.  I didn’t know about the Divine Feminine.

rose2I didn’t know that I can ask for myself, and that it’s ok to receive, give myself permission, and forgive myself.  That I don’t have to feel guilty, or make myself small to let others feel good about themselves.  I didn’t always know that I don’t have to carry shame around with me like a suit of armor, or live from a place of fear.  And I didn’t know that I don’t have to hide myself away, I didn’t always know that there is another way, that I’m allowed to think a different way or that the universe is not against me.

I wasn’t always proud of who I am.  The truth is that I didn’t know who I am.

I didn’t know my own feminine worth, my own beauty, my own desires.  I didn’t have dreams, I didn’t know I was creative, and loving, that I had wisdom and beauty and joy all inside of me just waiting for me to wake up to my own self and unearth out my hidden treasures.

I didn’t always know that I am Divine Mother incarnate.  That She is in me, as me, and through me.  She is me and I am Her.

I didn’t know – I am all that – Divine Feminine!

Reminder-Your Angels are Always With You

When you’re in pain, when you know that you have a heavy long road ahead of you towards your recovery.  When you’re inside that place, when even without wanting to, you fall into that place of depression and despair, it’s easy to forget all that you know about healing, about visualizing, about calling on your angels to help you…

And then, the universe totally surprises you and out of the blue while you’re at the therapy center you look down, and there on the floor amidst weights right in front of you, there on the floor, is a tiny feather, (how did this feather even get in here?) a wink from the universe letting you know it’ll be alright, and you remember what you know to be true – call on us your angels for love, protection, light, guidance, and healing.  You smile inside your heart and you know you’ll be alright.  And you say, thank you for reminding me that you’re always here with me –  Thank you, I love you, love you, love you.

Angel Blessings

Why Get to Know Yourself

The greatest gift that you can give to yourself is to – know yourself – not from the outside in, but from the inside out, that’s how you bloom into harmony with yourself and actually with all of life.

loving harmony (1)

For the last 22 years I’ve been on an awakened spiritual journey and what I can tell you is that from the moment of my conscious awakening all I’ve wanted to do is go deeper and deeper within.  It is from that place within that I’ve gotten to know life, the universe, and me.  And one thing’s for sure, there’s always more, there’s always another door to open and walk through.  There’s always a new path unfolding.  There’s always another layer of illusion to shed. There’s always another level of higher consciousness opening.  A continuous spiral that never ends.

The more I get to know myself, the more I’m able to create balance in my life.  The more I’m able to stick with a healthier daily routine, and get to know me, the true, real naked me, the me who I really am.

The more I get to know myself the more I live in loving harmony with myself in mind, body and soul.

Blessings
