August – A Month of Pampering Yourself

There are many ways that we can pamper ourselves.  Take a hot bath with scented oils.  Get a massage.  Take a nap.  Buy ourselves flowers, a gift, take a walk in nature, see a movie with a friend…but we don’t think about pampering ourself with the thoughts that we allow to overtake our mind and body.

Every thought that we have holds either a negative or positive energy that affects our entire selves.  Our thoughts don’t just stay in our mind, they filter through to every cell in our body.  They get embedded in our blood, our skin, our bones.  They get into every nook and crevice.  They park themselves inside of us creating havoc in our bodies if they are negative thoughts.

Every thought dictates our well being.  Every thought heals us or not, makes us feel happy or not, loving or not, angry or not.  Every thought creates a feeling which creates an emotion, which creates our experience, which creates our actions. And with every thought we have every day, we’re living and experiencing our life.

I’m making August a month of mindful pampering for me.  Reminding myself every week of another area I’ve been neglecting.  Life happens and things just get away from me and I have to bring myself back to what’s important for me.  Living everyday mindfully and consciously aware of what thoughts and words I allow into my mind and body.  What I allow to rule, regulate and shape me, helps me to stay more open to what’s important for me, and that is filling myself with loving healing energy and connected with Divine Mother.

What I do is I set my intention to be conscious of negative thoughts I’m holding on to.  It may be something someone said at work, or something that I’m thinking about myself. Words that I’m using to berate myself, thoughts of not being good enough…I stop myself, I thank that thought for being here and I tell it I don’t need it anymore and I change it to a positive thought.  I only hold on to good loving thoughts about myself.  

My trick for reminding myself to only hold on to words and thoughts that are empowering for me, is I place sticky notes around my house to remind myself.  I’ll write on them – be conscious of your thoughts.  I’ll place a sticky note on my bathroom mirror, on my refrigerator, on my computer, on the table where I sit, on the dashboard of my car, anyplace where I will see them throughout the day.   I deserve good thoughts.  This works like magic.

Inner calm, a feeling of peace, living at a higher vibration.  Feeling in harmony with universal forces, manifesting our desires, all of this happens when we remove the negative thoughts that block us, limit us, disempower us, that are influencing our every day living.

So make August a month of pampering yourself with thoughts that uplift and heal!

Open

Open to your inner cravings.

Look at them.

What are they?

Are they pushing you, pulling you, enticing you, calling to you to meet them? To pick them up and create with them?  To let them out?

Are they dancing on the edges of your being?

Are they singing your song?

Open

open

There are inner cravings that I cannot get away from. No matter what I do, they are there.  They are a part of me beckoning at me, calling at me, they are wanting to be heard, to be shown, to be drawn out into the open. I cannot ignore them they don’t leave me alone, they are always there pulling, pushing at me wanting to be let out. To shine in the world.  It doesn’t matter if  I’m not in the mood, or if I’m lazy, or tired, they even wake me from my sleep… they don’t go away they are always right there underneath the surface and I cannot hide from them. I must tend to them, they are like the weeds in my garden they are persistent and insist on coming out, persistent in growing where they want to grow, and I have to make the way.

I’m inside a transformation right now, moving away from the used to be me and opening to a new me.  A me I’m not familiar with, entering a higher level of consciousness a place I walk unsteady in.  I know that I’m unfolding and I have grown into this new place, i can’t not go, I have to, I must. Even though the path in front of me I cannot see, this is the natural progression for my soul.

My life seems to be on hold for a moment while in this transition, while i find my way.  Everything I believe is expanding.  Everything I want to write I haven’t been able to.  The old way is falling away and the new is taking form inside a higher vibration.

I have crossed over the threshold, and armed with trust and faith I’ve taken the first step.  A new consciousness is being birthed in me and I am now present, ready, I allow, I open.

Every Moment Holds Possibilities

Every moment holds a richness within it that is waiting to be unlocked. A world of new possibilities, of unlimited potential, of opportunities, of miracles and magic. Of feelings yet unknown, of experiences yet to uncover. Of great mysteries to be unveiled.possibilities3

Every moment offers us the possibilities to change our life, to uplift ourselves, to look at what we want to hold on to and what we want to let go of.

Every moment is filled with new choices we can make, a new path we can take, a new project we can start.

In every moment we can nourish our souls, we can decide to…take another step towards our dream. Renew. Change. Become empowered.  Open a new door within.

With every moment we can –

Let go of judgment.

Leave toxic relationships.

Create a new vision for ourselves.

We can –

Dream bigger.

Forgive.

Accept.

Be gentle with our self.

Get curious.

Love.

In every moment lies the opportunity to open to our Great Mother and become the co-creators of our life together with Her.

In every moment lies endless possibilities…

Open to the Wild Within

Open to the wild within and touch the wild that is waiting for you. Greet Her with love and look on Her with owe, feel a sense of belonging – you already know Her she’s been with you all of your life and over many other lifetimes since the beginning of your soul.  She’s been with you guiding you and loving you, embracing you in Her compassion. You heard Her, felt Her, followed Her wisdom when you were open enough and trusting enough. She is the wise woman inside you, the Divine Mother; open up to Her, let Her reveal the universe to you. Love yourself in all of Her glory – she’s moving mountains for you.

Know that everything happens in divine timing, if you’re reading this you’re here for a reason, your soul has brought you to here to these words. Listen to yourself.  Open that door to within; the great Divine Goddess is waiting for you to unfold into Her.

Do you trust the wisdom from within you?

Do you have a relationship with yourself?  With your inner wild self?  Do you know who she is?  Do you know She is You? Do you love Her/yourself completely, without judgment, without criticism? Do you accept yourself totally?  Do you say loving words to yourself?

Open up to your own inner being, let the door to your heart open, and be open minded and allow for the process of healing to begin.

You are love, you came from love and you will return to that love. Allow yourself to experience all the love that is waiting to embrace you.

Are You Holding Back from Sharing Your Gifts and Talents

We each have something special and extraordinary to share with the world but, some of us even when we know our purpose, are still waiting for that special moment, and perfect time, because we believe that we still don’t know enough.  So we’re waiting for when we will know more, be ready more, be brave more, achieve more… I can tell you that if you think that way, than that special moment may not come.  It took me years to finally step forward, to open up and be strong enough to say – I know enough, that I can do this, I am ready.

quote picasso

We’re always evolving there is always more to know than what you know right now, and the spiral never ends, there are always more doors to open and walk through.  There are always higher levels of consciousness to uncover, and if you want to share your gifts, don’t wait, share them just as you are right now, the world needs to have your gifts.  You’re here for a purpose and you came with your own unique story, gifts and talents.

Your story is important.  Your gifts are important.  Your talents are important.

You don’t need another course, read another book, do another retreat, or wait another minute – all you need is your brave self to step forward and empower you to let go and just do it.  Share your special, spectacular gifts with the world.  And as you do, you will grow, you will evolve, the universe will fill you with more and you will reach higher levels of conscious bliss.

Unwrap your gifts and share them with the world.  You got this!!!

So are you sharing fully your gifts?  If not, what’s holding you back?  What do you think you still need before you can bring your gifts and talents out to the world.  Please share your thoughts in the comments bellow, love to hear from you.

Blessings

April a Month of Inspired Creativity

Last month I decided to challenge myself and create something every day in April.  OK it may not happen every day since I already missed the very first day.  I don’t know why but I totally forgot that yesterday was April 1, even though my son played an April fools joke on me, and yes I fell for it, I still forgot and I didn’t create anything.  But, in my defense, in the morning I was busy getting ready for Easter Sunday with family.  The food was delicious as always, and I had a really great time seeing everyone and I got to meet our new sweet baby girl her name is Layna Rae.  And yes, I can’t believe myself I didn’t take any pictures, but I’ll get one and post at another time.

One reason why I wanted to create something every day in April is because last year I decided to create a 44 card oracle deck “Magical Journey”   It all came to me in one moment, and it’s been a process of love.  I already have several cards which I can’t wait to post and share with you.

day 1

I signed up for a year long course, Soulful Scribe, given by Belle Coeur  Today I got the first email, and the theme for this month’s contemplation is all about “cultivating and nurturing your listening heart.”  While reading I was inspired to create this card – listen to your heart!  It just may wind up being one of my “Magical Journey” oracles.

Not to worry I won’t overload you with my daily creations, but I will update every so often.

If you feel inspired, I’d love it if you will join me. No obligation.  Doesn’t have to be anything big, it could be a picture you were inspired to take that made you feel good.  A quote you read that sparked a feeling in you.  Or something you wrote.  Feel free to post your inspiration here in the comments bellow, love to see it.

Inspired Blessings
