Why You Should Think Good Thoughts

“As you think thoughts that feel good to you.  You will be in harmony with who you really are.”   ~~Abraham-Hicks

I feel so blessed to have been visited by Abraham-Hicks, in my dream last night.(according to Esther & Jerry Hicks is a group of entities interpreted by Esther, they describe themselves as “a group consciousness from the non-physical dimension”)  The word they brought to me is  “thoughts” I’ve never dreamed of Abraham before, so I’m feeling that this is very special and magical, a message I’m being guided to share.

Abraham is reminding us to pay attention to our thoughts, they are ruling our life, and our well-being.  When our thoughts are not in alignment with our inner divinity, we feel out of sorts because we’re not in harmony with who we truly are.

So, during this season of busy busy, where it’s easy to be overtaken by the outside hustle, being conscious of our own self-care is not a luxury but a necessity.

Part of that self-care are the thoughts that we allow to run rampant in our mind.  Make a conscious effort to pay attention to them, are they thoughts that are creating harmony or discord?  Let go of all thoughts that are creating havoc for you, the ones that are making you feel rushed, stressed, and overwhelmed.  Remember you’re in control of how you feel –

Navigate this season with thoughts that are making you feel calm, in control and filling you with joy.

Changing your thoughts will magically change your days and align you with inner harmony.

Blessed Samhain

I love celebrating the different seasons, and right now I feel a very strong calling towards connecting with Mother Earth and my ancestors through ritual and ceremony.

Giving thanks, honoring and celebrating our ancestors, bringing their spirit forward is a powerful way to connect with the spirits in this world and the otherworld.

With Samhain we mark the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter, opening up a deep season of inner beauty.  I wanted to share with you my altar of celebrating my ancestors and honoring them.

ancestral alter

I have Our Lady of Guadalupe who is with me always. This is a picture of my mother and father, and I am in the picture eating an apple, I was 18 months old here. I don’t have any photos of my family, they were all killed during the holocaust, but I can feel their spirit present here with me. I have an apple on my altar because my mother loved apples and ate one every day. I have a small stone (I stole from the cemetery, but don’t tell anyone) from my fathers grave site. I also have fresh rosemary to remove negativity and bring in Mother Earth.  A white feather I found outside just a few weeks ago, and a few of my crystals.

Last night my beautiful, precious Labradorite fell out of my hand and chipped a piece and I’m feeling so upset.  This was really not planned this way, it just happened that this morning I had a conversation with the beautiful Lori A Andrus, about something unrelated, but knowing her background i just had to ask, she’s a practitioner of crystal Shamanism, an artist, she hosts the Chrystal Shaman Life podcast, and if you haven’t heard it, you must, you can find her over here She told me the stone is supporting me, maybe there’s something I need to let go of and that I should ask for clarity and blessings.  I will be doing a ritual today to ask for clarity and I’m anxious to see what comes forward for me, what messages I will receive.

My altar will probably evolve a bit more, but I hope that, if you are not already creating an ancestral altar, that you are inspired to start one.

I’d love to hear from you, what your practice is and see a picture of your altar, if you wish to share, you can post in the comment section below.

Why Create a Mindful Pause in Your Day

I love to bring a moment of mindful pause into my day, purposefully being aware of what’s around me. Stepping into a moment of pause, is filling me with joy and beauty.

It’s raining here today and when I went out to get the garbage can I noticed how beautiful and vibrant my plants and stones looked all wet from the rain.  It’s as if they’ve been infused with a new energy and beauty. It made my whole body connect with the beauty in front of me.

This was my mindful pause yesterday morning, I noticed the beauty of this tree against the sky, in the parking lot coming out of the store.

tree7Creating a mindful pause and stopping for just a moment to take in the beauty that surrounds you every day, is a great way to let yourself drift into the moment and allow it to fill you with magic, and take you out of the ordinary and into the extraordinary of the everyday. You can make it an intention to mindfully find and admire something every day. A tree, a flower, a bench, a person, the way the sky looks, a child playing, the chirping of the birds, a swing in a park,…it can be anything, a rock on the ground.  But whatever it is for you, make a mindful pause part of your must for the day.  It will create a positive change in the way you feel.

I was going to write about my new word mindfulness, and I will, but today I wanted to share with you, what my word has already started to teach me.  For me, this is a practice I intend on continuing, sprinkling my days with mindful moments, that fill me with magic, joy and love.

Feel free to share in the comments below, your own ‘mindful pause’ of the day, if you have a picture that’ll be great, love to see it.

Why You Need to Start Your Day Mindfully

Begin each day mindfully, deciding how you want your day to unfold and allowing for Spirit.

Take a few minutes and sit in quiet solitude, remove yourself from all drama that doesn’t belong to you, and just allow yourself to breathe. Pay attention to your breath. Allow your heart to open to Spirit, to joy, to self-love and to the wonders this day holds for you.

Believe you deserve. Believe you are worthy. Affirm your belonging.  Call in for magick and miracles to show up.mindfully1Before I leave my house I set my intentions for the day.

I begin with asking Archangel Michael for protection, it’s important to ask for protection from unwanted energies that may not serve your highest good.  I ask my angels, spirit guides, my animal spirit guides, all ascended masters and teachers, my ancestors, all who are with me, to help me to be open and allow for Spirit to move through me and out of me.

If I’m going to work I visualize and affirm that everything in my day will work out perfectly for my highest good and that of everyone else.

I bless all the people that I will be in contact with.

I bless every meeting and visualize it all turning out perfectly.  I say, I love everyone and everyone loves me.

I bless the road I’ll be driving on and everyone else who is also on that road.

I visualize everything I need coming to me easily and magically today.

I didn’t always start my day this way.  First thing I did is turn on the news and filled my mind and body with all the negativity that the news carries.  And from day to day I carried over frustrations, and judgements, which occupied my mind from the minute I woke up.  I was filled with negative thoughts that I held on to, of she said, they said, dramas from previous days of who did what wrong to me, and how dare they and, and, and…

But if you are willing to open your mind to something extraordinary and  step into the energy that surrounds you, if you are willing to elevate your self, if you are willing to manifest a sweeter life…if you are willing…all is possible.

Starting your day mindfully sets the tone for the rest of the day.  It sets you up for success, and for brilliant possibilities.  Throughout the day when you can remember give thanks to Spirit and to your team of assistants from the invisible realm,  for helping you today and for your day unfolding in such perfect bliss.

Do you have a daily morning practice you indulge in? Share it in the comments, love to know.

Blessings for a beautiful day.

Simple Pleasures Can Fill Us With Joy

In the realm of the day to day we can find simple pleasures that fill us with great joy.

On Friday I went to my granddaughter’s school for a grandparents lunch. I sat next to my precious sweetheart who told me all about everything in the school.  Her favorite teacher who sat at our table, her best friend who was a few tables over, well she really has two best friends, and when I took a picture of the first graders singing she asked me why I’m taking a photo since she’s not in it LOL. And when I opened my napkin she showed me how to place my utensils the correct way. And I was gifted with these gorgeous roses.

A joyous memory I will hold forever in my heart.

Grateful for simple pleasures.

Feel free to share a simple pleasure that brought you great joy this past week, in the comments below.  Love to know.

Suspend Your Hold on Your Beliefs

Your beliefs hold the magic key to your life.

It is from this center of beliefs that your life is unfolding.  There are no limits to your being except for how you believe about yourself.  No limits to the love in your heart, no limits to infinite possibilities that lie in waiting for you.  Everything you look at, everything you touch, everything you allow or don’t allow, every reaction and every action you take, is colored and shaped by the beliefs you hold dear for yourself.

If you can suspend your hold on your beliefs, and look at them, one by one, bring them out from the depth of your being, and hold them up in the light and see if they are really yours.  And ask yourself, is this what I really and truly believe?  Or did I pick this up from someone else somewhere along the way, and just held on to it as my own?  It is than that you will begin the journey home to finding – you.

For fifty years I held on to beliefs that weren’t mine, they belonged to others, but I took them from the time I was a small child.  They were placed on me, ingrained into me, handed down to me like precious heirlooms, gifts from those who have lived and earned the right to declare them, and I took them, I believed them to be the gospel truth, about the universe, God, and of how I am.  I took these words and I put them inside of me, and I made them my own. They became embedded into every cell in my body. They became the center of my universe. The place from where all my decisions were made. They became what ruled and regulated and shaped my life.  All of my experiences were filtered through, and colored by, the beliefs that I upheld to and measured everything against.

I was those beliefs.

One day while reading my very first book on spirituality “The Seat of the Soul” I had an awakening, my heart opened up and I knew, I don’t know how I knew, but I knew that there is another way, that maybe everything I’ve held onto as gospel truth, was not the truth for me.  I knew that I can have different thoughts and different ideas and different beliefs from what I had known up to that moment. WOW!!! What a revelation!!! To realize that I can and am allowed to think a different way was amazing to me. And once I started to excavate and to work on my inner self and once I started to be able to change beliefs that I’ve held onto since childhood, my whole life started to transform.

Suddenly everything about me started to open, to expand, to uplift.  Life wasn’t cold and hard and life wasn’t something to fear and God was not what I was brought up to believe.  Suddenly the universe was revealing herself in ways I never had known and I was welcoming all of it, I was hungry, starving for the new that was unfolding.  And I started to let God in, a new God not the God I had feared and didn’t want to have anything to do with.  That God was my parents God, not mine, and I allowed a loving God to reveal God-self to me.

Every time I was able to suspend my hold on a belief that didn’t belong to me, and change it to what I did believe, limitations fell to the way side, possibilities appeared, doors opened where there were none before, it was like a whole new world opened up walls of steel fell off me and I felt freedom from the prison I had enclosed myself into.

When I suspended the hold on the beliefs that didn’t belong to me – I started to find myself.
