Why Take a Day Off From…

Today I’m just popping in for a quick minute to just invite you to give yourself permission to take a day off – from the world.  That’s what I’m doing and maybe you need to also.

Sometimes I forget that I can’t just give give give, and go go go, I need to also stop, receive and refill.  I need to also give myself time to just rest and replenish, and well…                just do nothing.

It’s a day that I give myself permission to just be.  Like I said I call it my – day off from the world. No work.  No heavy lifting.  No I have to.  I should.  I must.  No anxiety allowed.  (Although I have to admit I was feeling a bit anxious earlier, I’m totally calm now.)  No feeling guilty for taking time out for me to just chill, to just not expect anything of myself.  Just giving myself permission to play in the field without expectations to accomplish anything, or to create anything, or to inspire anyone…or, whatever it is I think I need to be doing.

Stopping to replenishing my mind, body and soul is the greatest gift I can give to my overall well-being.  This is part of my living mindfully and self-care, and sometimes I forget that I need to embrace solitude, empty space, do nothing time – rest.  Today, in my journal writing I was reminded of this practice by my Celestial Beings, thank you.

So, before I go and take a day off from the world, I just wanted to pop in here and share my thoughts with you, I hope that this will encourage you to do the same, if you’re finding yourself in need of some special self-care.

Blessings

An Invitation for 2019

My intention for 2019… a sweeter life.

This year I’m inviting  all of us to remember that we’re already cherished and loved by the one greatest universal force.

We’re invited to love ourselves without limitations and without guilt and as deeply as we can.

new year

We’re invited to shed the light on who we truly are – magnificent – deserving – worthy – loving – healthy – amazing – resilient… humans having a life here, just one of many.  Experiencing the spectrum of what life can bring us.  Learning to navigate through the rough waters, our fears and the sun-shiny days.

We’re invited to remember that we are more powerful than what we think.  That we can overcome, remove the walls, and reign supreme over our lives.  We are the magic wands of our life. (here)

This is my prayer for 2019, my invitation – to share what I’m inspired to create and what I know about living a sweeter life.  To cherish every moment even those that will have me fall off the wagon and into the pit, and the emotional break down ones, and that I can pull myself out and I can open my heart and be more and give more and receive more.  And that I can, and we all can, shine our light a lot brighter than what we are.

So I invite you to join me on this journey in 2019 and live the invitation of –

a sweeter life.

With gratitude and love – Happy 2019!!! Wishing all health, prosperity, happiness, love, magic and lots of blessings!!!

A Simple Way to Create a Little Altar

I love creating small altars that I can place around my home, they always fill me with great joy, like this little altar that I’m using as a table scape, that captures the season in a magical way for me.

inspire

You don’t have to spend a lot of money or go all fancy, just collect items that you already have.  Let yourself be guided by your spirit and put together things that are meaningful to you, and feels good to you.

I used a serving platter and put pine cones that I’ve had for a couple of years, some of my crystals, the green branches from the flowers I bought yesterday, three tea candles, something I always have in my home, and the inspiration rock I bought for 99 cents at Hobby Lobby.

Every time I walk by it, I stop and allow it to work its magic and I say thank you, or I’ll say a little blessing.  For me this is a sacred act of self-care, a moment in which I can get lost into and receive the gifts of Spirit.

I hope I’m inspiring you to create your own magical altar and I’d love it if you share it here in the comments.

Daily Mindful Pause

To connect with my inner self, I like to take a daily mindful pause.  I don’t plan this, I just set the intention for it and I open myself to receive the invitation from Spirit and  step into it.

Today my invitation for my mindful pause was this beautiful bouquet I bought at the store.  When I saw it, I was immediately drawn to it, I felt joy and holiday cheer and  couldn’t wait to come home and see what I was moved to create.

mindful pause

I love to lose myself in the mystery of the process.  Every time I’m inside that space of creative energy something happens, there’s a silence that I’m immersed in and I lose complete outer sense and become only aware of the now moment and the unfolding of an idea that through me is coming to life.

Love to hear from you, are you practicing a daily mindful pause, please feel free to share in the comments bellow 🙂

You Are the Magic Wand of Your Life

Today say YES

YES to your life.

YES to what your soul is calling you.

YES to a new beginning.

YES to your dreams.

You are the magic you’re looking for.

You have the wisdom inside of you.

You hold the power.

magic wand

Opening up to my light and letting it shine, has been the hardest for me.  I had to first get rid of so many obstacles, tear down so many walls, walls that I had built around me for protection.  Climb impossible mountains.  Step out of a lifetime of fear that kept me trapped inside more fear.  And the thing is that it wasn’t really my fear, I hadn’t really experienced it, this was my parents fear handed down to me like a precious heirloom.  They were holocaust survivors, they had lived through unimaginable horrors, they lost everyone they loved and everything they owned, and in order to protect me from the horrors of this world, they filled me with their fear that became imbedded into every cell of me from the moment I was born.

As a young child I didn’t understand the words, but I could feel my mothers emotions, I could feel her pain every day when she spoke of her life in concentration camps.  I could feel her anguish, I felt her tears.  I didn’t know how to deal with these emotions, I didn’t understand the pain I was feeling and I wanted it to stop, I wanted to run away, and so I buried myself away, I hid myself so deep within that I almost didn’t find myself.

The journey may not be easy but every day you have the power to decide, to move out of, to let go of what doesn’t feel good, what doesn’t serve your highest best. To open a new door within and walk through it. To break a habit, to learn something new, to start fresh. You have the power to change a thought, to inspire, encourage and uplift yourself.  To raise your consciousness. To ask why am I holding on to this? To live in light, to give love to you.

You hold the power to nourishing your fears or nourishing your dreams.  Which do you want to give your power to? Because whichever one you give it to, that one will flourish and grow and be your magic.

You have the choice – you are your own magic wand.

I love reading your comments and thoughts, come share your magic in the comment section bellow, we all learn from each other, lets have a conversation.

Magical Blessings
