How I Set Myself Up for a Successful Outcome

On the 18th I’m scheduled for a knee replacement surgery, I’ll be in the hospital overnight and then I’ll be in a rehab center, I don’t know for how long before I’m able to come home.

I’m not going to lie, yes I am concerned and I am at times flipping out, but at the same time I know that everything will be ok, the surgery will be a success, and I will get through this and will be perfect and happy and grateful that I’m after it all, and everything turned out great.

I’m trying to hold on to my deepest beliefs here, that what we put out into the universe with our thoughts and feelings is what we receive back from the universe.  So  I’m envisioning me after everything, healthy and well and feeling so happy.  Seeing myself walking around my neighborhood, stopping and taking photos.  Thanking our Great Mystery our Divine Mother, my angels and all the celestial beings who are with me helping me and blessing me.  Giving thanks that the surgery was a success and I’m now able to travel.  I’m on a cruise.  I’m climbing mountains YEAH!!! (well maybe the mountains thing will stay in my imagination :), and  I’m feeling extremely happy and giving thanks that I’m healed and well.  I’m blessing and thanking the surgeon and his team, and all the people who helped me.  Thank you – Thank you – Thank you.

crystal

When I decided to bring my rose quartz crystal with me to have its loving energy, I wanted to take a photo for this blog post and the funny thing is that the crystal kept on falling out of my hand and I couldn’t hold on to it to snap a picture.  After about the fifth time I finally got the message, LOL, I was using the wrong background. The minute I realized this, my mothers needlepoint with the Hummingbirds that she made for me years ago came into my mind.  There was more to this than just my crystal. The Hummingbird is bringing the message of hope and jubilation.  Of joy, renewal, healing and more.  And of course my darling mother letting me know she’s with me, watching over me, all will be well.  A sign of hope to take with me.

Life is not always sunshine and flowers and magical fluffy stuff.  With every new age come new challenges.  I’m 72 now and my body is not what it was when I was 20, or 30 or even 60, or last year.  And so, I’m moving with the flow, holding on to my vision of wellness, being grateful, having faith in the process and allowing it to unfold in the way that it’s supposed to – divinely.

A Message from Your Angels

Be conscious of nourishing your joy.

It’s so easy to get lost inside the everyday hustle and to forget your joy.

conscious joy

Reminder alert here –

Nourish your joy every day, don’t let it fall to the wayside and let yourself get caught up in negative thoughts that are not serving you well.  Be conscious of your joy, if you’re not feeling it, stop and ask yourself what are you feeling?  How important is that feeling to you?  If it’s not brining you joy, why are you holding on to it?  Let it go, get conscious and do something that brings you joy, and hold on to that instead.  This can be as simple as taking a break and sitting quietly having a cup of coffee, calling on your angels and asking them to help you feel joy, drawing a doodle for a few minutes, or mindfully affirming that you are joy.  Your body, mind and soul will thank you, and your angels will be dancing all around you.

Your angels want you to know that joy is your gift, and you’re here to feel joy – allow joy to flourish.

Why Give Your Self Praise

It’s real easy to put ourselves down for what we believe we didn’t do right, or perfect enough, or for putting our foot in our mouth…But it’s not often, or maybe never, that we give ourselves a high five for a job well done.  Maybe appreciating ourselves for finishing a goal we set for ourselves, for being brave enough, or for the every day things that we accomplish…We praise everyone else for all sorts of things, oh what you did was great…I knew you could do it…I’m so proud of you…you’re amazing…but we don’t say those kind precious words to our own self.

I was looking through some photos and I’m in awe of how great a photographer I’ve become.  I’ve busted through and gotten over my fear of photographing something in public. I’ve developed a keen eye and an inner sense of looking through the lens and highlighting the beauty in what I’m photographing. I’ve gained perspective for how to position my subject for best effect, and I’ve learned how to edit my photographs…I’ve fallen in love with the camera and seeing my creations bring happiness to others makes me super happy and proud of myself.  So today I’m praising myself for the awesome photographer I’ve become.  I AM AWESOME!!!  YEAH!!!

If you’ve been following me for a while, you can kind of tell that I love flowers.  I find them wherever I go.  These I photographed today at the supermarket.

Giving your self praise will uplift your mood, will make you happy and feel good about yourself, and it’ll help you believe in yourself.  It will empower you, give you self confidence, motivation and inspiration – and guess what?  All that is good for your health.

So how about you?  Be your own best friend.  You deserve kindness from you, you deserve your own praise.   It’s the greatest pick me up and the greatest for your soul.

Are You Following Your Ego or Your Heart

The job of the ego is to protect us and to keep us safe, that means keeping us in the same familiar place, where things are cozy and safe.

It’s taken me a lot of inner work to recognize when I’m being guided from my ego who is constantly telling me that I shouldn’t do this…can’t do that…it’ll be too hard…what’s the point…don’t even bother to start, it won’t work out …you’re not really good enough for this…and I’m still working on this, and I still fall into the ego trap. This is not an overnight success story. 🙂

quote

I believe our ego is a part of who we are and is with us to serve a purpose.  But, when we have those moments of self doubt, we can be mindful, let them show themselves, recognize that those negative, self doubting thoughts are from our ego place, say thank you and let them go.  And with mindfulness drop into our heart.

The heart knows the way.  The heart holds our secrets and treasures for a life filled with joy, purpose and beauty.  When we step into a journey with our heart, we live inspired through creativity, passion, mindfulness, purpose…Our life becomes magical.

Letting myself be guided by the beauty in my heart has opened this amazing, magical universe for me.

How about you?  Are you being guided by the beauty in your heart?  Leave a comment love to hear from you.

Blessings
