Empowering Words to Self

I sometimes post to my FB account (here) and to my Instagram account (here) but I don’t share it here with you.  So, I decided to share with you this, note to myself, because sometimes I tend to forget how POWERFUL I am.

i am

I AM VALUABLE – BRAVE – COURAGEOUS!!!

I’ve written it out on sticky notes and placed one on my fridge, one on my computer, and one on my bathroom mirror so I can see it throughout the day, first thing in the morning when I wake, and last thing at night before going to bed.

Empower yourself with uplifting words – you deserve it!

Blessings

You’re a Divine Miracle, Give Yourself a Break!

“You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”  ~Buddha

The relationship you have with yourself is the one that matters the most.

Give yourself a break – you deserve it!  Do one act of loving kindness for yourself today-

Give yourself a break from all the hustle, and the rushing…Set aside the shoulds, the have tos, the need to, the musts…let it all go…

Are you stressed out to the max?  Are you letting anger and fear control you?   Are you overthinking everything?  Let it all go and just be the powerful miracle that you are and – give yourself a break today.

lili5Remember that you’re special – important – extraordinary – amazing – and worthy.  You’re a divine miracle and deserving to receive of all that you have to give.

To love yourself is to love Spirit, there is no separation. You’re one with the Divine.

Bring a loving light into your day and just – give yourself a break today!!!

What one act of kindness can you give yourself today, come and share, I’d love to know.

Blessings

July A Message from Hummingbird

I love pulling a Tarot or Oracle card on the first of each month and letting it be a guiding energy for the month.  On 7/1 I asked what energy do I need for this month and Hummingbird showed up and OMG absolutely perfect, just what I needed a reminder of.

When Hummingbird shows up it’s a reminder that we need to bring joy into our days, to lighten up, take ourselves out of a rut we may be in.  Hummingbird also reminds us to look at our energy levels and that we need to raise our vibration, a good question to ask ourselves is – are we wasting our energy on worry, fear, on not having enough?  And when this magical bird appears we can expect synchronicities to happen.  Hummingbirds also symbolize healing, agility, playfulness and this is just a few things.

For me, I have a tendency to fall into the place of ‘serious’ and not even realize it.  And right now, as I’m going through this recovery from surgery, let me tell you it’s not hard at all to go day after day and not be aware of that I’m missing the little things that bring great joy into my day.  So for Hummingbird to show up, what a blessing.

So this is my intention for this month, to make myself aware to bring joy into every day. Doesn’t matter what it is, putting my feet up and drinking a cup of tea and feeling the joy in it.   Listening to the birds chirping in the morning.  Or buying myself flowers…Whatever it is, I’ll be bringing joy intentionally to my days even if it is for just a couple of moments.

When we set the intention and become aware, we can find a moment of sweetness in every day.  If you resonate with Hummingbirds message, join me in intentionally bringing a moment of joy into your every day, it will make a difference in your wellbeing.  Let me know what you think, leave a comment, I love to know.

This beautiful card is from the Mystical Shaman Oracle card deck by, Alberto Violloldo, Colette Baron-Reid, & Marcela Lobos.

A Message of Hope from the Universe

I was looking through Instagram last week, not really paying any particular attention to anything, I’m still recovering from the surgery and my concentration right now is very minimal, when suddenly these words just jumped out at me and struck me – this too shall pass – Oh WOW!!! I turned off my phone and  I quickly wrote them down so i don’t forget them.  I sat there holding them inside of me, allowing them to linger taking in their meaning and their magick.

These words were exactly what I needed.  I’ve been so caught up in the web of this recovery, that I’m not seeing the light.  Mostly I have no energy and I’m dragging through the days.  In my last blog post (here) I wrote about being deliriously happy because I can drive myself now, and I am but, I’m far from recovered.  This recovery is not a walk in the park, I’m not back to my normal self and I haven’t been able to get back into my daily routine, into a rhythm that supports and uplifts my life every day.  I know it will take time but I wasn’t remembering this when those words screamed out at me.

When we’re going through a rough patch, no matter what it is, a divorce, a recovery, an emotional time, we don’t remember that things will get better, that we will get through this, that we will be ok.  It’s hard to see an end, it’s hard to envision light when in the dark.  But, the truth is that whatever we’re going through, is not going to last forever, it will get better.  We live in a universe that is always changing and moving and so are we, that’s just how it is.  And regardless of anything, as this amazing Universe reminded me, the truth is that no matter what –

this too shall pass.

I’m carrying these words with me, empowered and hopeful with the knowing that I’ll be ok and I’m hoping that it brings you comfort as it does for me – knowing that whatever you’re going through is not forever and will pass.

I’ve Reached a Milestone in My Recovery

OMG I can’t stand it I’m so deliriously happy. YEAHHHH!!!! Freedom!!! I drove myself to Target yesterday for the first time since my surgery and I feel like I have crossed a milestone.  It’s been six weeks and I’m not going to lie to you, this recovery has been kicking my butt.  I’m finally now starting to get back to my awesome self.  I’m still not 100% recovered, I’m released from therapy but I still have a ways to go, and it’s getting easier now.  Walking every day and using the stationary bike is what’s helping me to heal my knee.

And being able to drive myself to the store, well that is just a whole other level of joy – it’s total heaven.

So, I’m sharing some photos I took yesterday, and by the way the peaches are so good right now. 🙂  And it feels soooooo good to be stopping along the way and taking photos.

Look at the color on these cherries.

And here’s a thought for you –

Cherish your health, love your body, nourish your mind every day!!!

Journal Entry – Divine Feminine

These are the words that came to me today when I saw the word “Feminine” for today’s prompt for the May Magick 2019 that I’m participating in.

I didn’t always see myself as feminine and having worth and being special.

I didn’t always honor myself, love myself, create sacred space for me.  I didn’t know about angels and spirit guides and animal spirits, faeries and Gaia.  Or, ritual and prayer.  And I didn’t know about Her.  I didn’t know about the Divine Feminine.

rose2I didn’t know that I can ask for myself, and that it’s ok to receive, give myself permission, and forgive myself.  That I don’t have to feel guilty, or make myself small to let others feel good about themselves.  I didn’t always know that I don’t have to carry shame around with me like a suit of armor, or live from a place of fear.  And I didn’t know that I don’t have to hide myself away, I didn’t always know that there is another way, that I’m allowed to think a different way or that the universe is not against me.

I wasn’t always proud of who I am.  The truth is that I didn’t know who I am.

I didn’t know my own feminine worth, my own beauty, my own desires.  I didn’t have dreams, I didn’t know I was creative, and loving, that I had wisdom and beauty and joy all inside of me just waiting for me to wake up to my own self and unearth out my hidden treasures.

I didn’t always know that I am Divine Mother incarnate.  That She is in me, as me, and through me.  She is me and I am Her.

I didn’t know – I am all that – Divine Feminine!

Blessings
