Just Some Photos

This week I’m sharing some photos.  Last week I was in Las Vegas visiting with my son, his girl friend and my granddaughter, here are some photos of what we did.

I love all the bling in Las Vegas, and all the shopping 🙂   This is on display going down the escalator in Macy’s, at the Fashion Show shopping mall.

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.
