Design Your Own Life Style

“The way you live your days is the way you live your life.” ~ Annie Dillard

Your life is a life style all your own, and you’re the only one designing and creating every single detail in the style that you decide.Tree shadow.jpegLarge

In the light..

You hold the power over all energies – bringing them to light – making them so.Leaf on ground.jpegYou have your own way of seeing things.  You have your own set of beliefs that you have acquired and are holding onto – that dominate, rule and regulate and shape the outcome of each of your thoughts.

Your’e the only one who can have the final say so, you’re the final decision maker.  Even when you think you don’t have a choice, you do, you’re the one making the choice of no choice.  You’re the one holding the magic key to your life and consciously or unconsciously, whether you want to admit it or not, you’re the one creating every single moment.3 cactus.jpegYou have the responsibility for your life and you can either accept that you are the mover and the shaker of your own journey, or you can hide away and just let life pass you by because with or without you – life will pass – life will change – life will move – life doesn’t wait – life is creating it doesn’t stand still.

You’re a miracle and you have the power to reinvent and change the course of your life,  to reach for the stars – to re-design – re-shape – re-structure – to change what you don’t like.

Step into your life, sprinkle some magic and design your own unique life style.

April Energy – Grace

“You can have the other words – chance, luck, coincidence, serendipity. I’ll take grace. I don’t know what it is exactly, but I’ll take it.” ~ Mary Oliver

While I was trying to think about the energy of April the word grace popped into my head and honestly I questioned it.  Grace?  I don’t want grace.  What can I do with grace?  I don’t even really know what it means?  What am I supposed to write about grace?

As I started to accept grace (because it wouldn’t go away) and I allowed it to just be, just holding the word in my heart and in my mind, gave me a feeling of calm, of rest, of stepping aside and allowing a force greater than me to take care of me and somehow I knew that in grace all is well.Orchid purple.jpegI don’t fully know what it means, but maybe grace is asking, let go of all the worries and stress and rest in grace, in the calm and in the knowing that you’re being taken care of. That every thing is unfolding in divine timing.  That being stressed does not solve anything.  That holding on to things doesn’t allow growth and movement – that opening up and allowing grace, amazing things will show up. So even though I don’t fully know what grace means right now, nor why it popped into my head and took such a strong hold of me, I do know that as I let go, allow and accept, as I believe more and trust more – grace – will unfold and reveal herself.  Grace.pngI know that there is a power greater than us and trusting that it is always holding, loving and guiding us is maybe a way of being aligned with grace.Blue flower.jpegAs the month of April unfolds so will grace she will unfold and show the power of her miracles, magic and gifts.Orchid purple2.jpegOrchid blue.jpegSo I’ve come to realize so far, that the energy of Grace is here to remind us that we are never alone, that the gifts of the universe are always in front of us, always gracing us, always unfolding for us.  Revealing the indescribable deliciousness of knowing a deeper truth, all we need to do is accept them, believe, trust, and know that we are loved beyond measure and – allow…  Grace!

What are your thoughts about grace?  Come, leave your comment, I’d love to chat.

Your Inner Miracle Maker

Are you saying yes to your life?

Are you stepping into your power?

Are you living your true possibilities?

Your true natural?

Are you living your life as the miracle that it is?

Have you found your Miracle Maker within?

Geod.jpeg

We each have a Miracle Maker – that inner part of us that is guiding us, and loving us, and offering the fruits of the universe to us

Do you know your Miracle Maker?

Do you have a relationship with Her?

Buddah.jpeg

Your Miracle Maker has always been with you since before you were born

You may dismiss her warnings and think it’s all hogwash

You may wonder why she’s not listening to you and fulfilling your every request, so you may doubt her existence

But, whatever –

Your Miracle Maker is with you

Shining the light inside you

Offering you the gifts that seem way too out there

Seem like impossible to attain

Impossible to believe

Open You up

Listen to your Miracle Maker

Geod3.jpeg

Today I’m sharing with you these words that came to me and out of me in one moment in an ordinary day. You never know when creativity will strike, when your Miracle Maker will summon you and you must obey, you must be still and you must be the instrument through which she can come through. Elizabeth Gilbert writes about this in her book Big Magic. If you let your creative genius go, if you let the moment pass, you will never get it back again.  I know this so well, if you shut down and don’t accept, if you don’t make yourself ready and available, if you are not ready right there in the moment she will leave.

Geod1.jpeg

I’m not sure who or what my Miracle Maker is.  She’s my intuition, my creativity, my higher self, all of these, I don’t know.  But I know she is inside of me, a part of me.  She nudges me, and calls me, and her gifts are many and brilliant and sometimes I’m afraid to show them.  But not today.

Do you know your Miracle Maker?  Leave your thoughts in the comments below, I’d love to chat.

All About Listening + Spring

“Can words describe the fragrance of the very breath of spring?” ~ Neltje Blanchan

I wanted to write about trusting your inner knowing.  I tried all week to write it but I just couldn’t find the right words.  I even tried to decide on the pictures to accompany the words, and that was a struggle too.  I couldn’t get the right picture, the right color, it wasn’t coming naturally and smoothly.  In the end I just couldn’t get it and before I knew it, here I am Sunday afternoon and I’m still trying to force write what isn’t coming.

Isn’t it ironic that while I was trying to write about trusting my inner wisdom, I was actually doing the very opposite.  So instead I let go of forcing and I decided to actually – trust and listen – (LOL) to my inner knowing, and go with what was my original instinct that I had for this week and post some of the gorgeous photos I took while out and about.

Ahhhhhhhh the colors, the smell, the new freshness of Spring!  What beauty it holds.     What precious gifts!…

Is this the most luscious pink, or what?

Trusting in my inner wisdom is not always easy.  Sometimes I’m blinded by that other part of me that lives in the rational realm that always wants to let me know that it knows better and says no, that’s not good enough, or clever enough, and I fall pray to it’s clutches.    I’m working hard at listening to that part of me that knows all, and always has my best interest at heart that is for my highest good and that of all.

So, welcome Spring –

I hope you found as much joy, loveliness and some peaceful moments while reading, and allowed these photos with their brilliant colors to touch your senses, as I did while writing this post.

“The earth laughs in flowers.” ~ Emmerson

As always, you’re invited to share your thoughts, comments, pictures.  Let’s chat.

Wishing you Spring Blessings.

Happy March Full of Possibilities!!!

“There’s joy in the mountains; There’s life in the fountains; Small clouds are sailing, Blue sky prevailing;”        ~ “Written in March” by William Wordsworth

Life is a journey of seasons and March is the season that brings forth possibilities, hope and a renewed sense of wonder and magic.Single flower.jpeg

This morning I pulled up the shade on my window and the first thing I saw were my neighbors trees with blossoming flowers and it hit me – oh wow, Spring is here.

Tree w flowers 1.jpegTree w flowers 2.jpeg

March is the month that opens the doorway to new possibilities.  It’s the month that awakens Mother Earth, can you feel her stirring under your feet with delight?

For me March feels like I’m waking from a long slumber. I can feel a new energy in the air.  It’s time to clean house, to re-examine what I’ve planted into the soul of the universe.  What needs to be weeded out, re-thought, it’s the time to clear away and make room for something better and new.

I feel the possibilities that lie ahead, the movement of change and newness stirring.

Gift yourself the freedom to choose the perfect seeds for your growth.  Pull out the weeds, kick away any stones, break down the walls that are blocking the sun from shining on your soul’s dreams.

Set new intentions that align more with your energies to bring your dreams to life.

ladybug

Now is the time for moving forward in faith.  Focus in.  Move with courage and trust that your seeds are being nourished for the highest good.  Bless them and allow the Universe to grow them.

Feel free to share your intentions, thoughts, your comments in the space below, love to chat.

You Have the Power Within You

You are more powerful than you believe yourself to be, more awesome than you give yourself credit for being, you have no limits in your imagination, your possibilities are endless and your love is infinite.

What a great way to end this month of – self love – than to realize and believe that you are powerful beyond measure, have potential within you that is unlimited, and hold the golden key to endless possibilities within you.

How much better self love can you give yourself than to believe that you are a miracle of the All Mighty that you are here to co-create with the Universal Force who can only happen through you.

joseph-boat

You have been given the complete freedom to create your life as you dream it. You have freedom of thought and freedom of will and freedom of love.   How much or how little you allow yourself of this freedom is totally up to you.  You are the designer, the builder, the lover and the co-creator with Spirit of your own life.  You are in charge and you can live in fear as a victim or you can move beyond the fear and live in glory, a victor.

joseph-horse

As you open up to greater possibilities and believe that you are the co-creator of your life, that you hold the magic wand in your own hands and trust the Higher Power within you, your love for yourself will be greater, and from you – love will overflow into the universe.  You will move from living in the dark to living in the light, and your life will change.

joseph-barn

“The power is within you.  It always has been.  How far are you willing to expand the horizons of your thinking and stir that power awake.” ~ Louise Hay
