A Little Beauty for the Heart

Sunday blessings friends.

During this trying time, I like most all of us, am trying to stay calm, be aware of what’s going on, stay home, which I’m actually quite happy to do, since I’m a homebody at heart, and dealing with the situation the best I can.

They say that looking at beautiful things can improve the quality of your life and create happiness within.  I think that we should give ourselves something beautiful to look at every day and especially now, reflect on the beauty around you and nourish your heart.

Yesterday I spent time looking through some of my recent photos I don’t think I’ve shared, and found these that made me feel good, happy and smile.  I think that flowers have that affect on most of us.  A connection with nature that uplifts our spirit.  And strangely enough I feel a connection to the entire universe, a oneness.

I hope these photos brought you a moment of calm, beauty and joy.

Love, prayers and many blessings!

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
