A Pause in the Day

A simple pause in the day –

tree green2

It’s amazing what a moment of pause, of placing your focus on something else can do for you.  While I was out earlier, I was lost in thought thinking about how limited I am right now in my mobility, how life has a way of slowing you down, when suddenly I noticed the tree with its green leaves against the blue sky and the gorgeous clouds, and everything changed, and gratitude showed up.

Happy day!!!

Blessings

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…

Blessings

What if You Loved YourSelf

What would happen if you started to love yourself, I mean –

r e a l l y   l o v e   y o u r   s e l f  in a way you never have before –

What would happen if you started to believe even for a moment that you are deserving, worthy, magnificent, spectacular and perfect just the way you are. That you are enough, creative, loving, good, the perfect size, have the perfect shape and you don’t need to do anything more to come to that special place of loving yourself.

buddah quote 1

That to love yourself you don’t have to apologize, feel guilty, need permission; give up your own needs to fill someone else’s.

Much too often we put ourselves last on the list, our children come first, the spouse comes first, the job comes first, the friend, family, parents, other obligations, all come first. We worry about being egotistic, conceited, not caring or good enough.  We worry about meeting someone else’s expectations of us and looking good in someone else’s eyes, and… In the end we feel depleted, out of breath, run down, depressed, resentful…

What would happen if you poured real love unto yourself and if you let that love shine in your whole body?  What if your love for yourself would be so great that you couldn’t contain it and you would have to let it pour out of yourself to others?

Imagine what it could be like if you were totally and completely in love with yourself.

If you dared to declare I  L O O O O O O O V E  M E E E E E E E E.

Imagine if you could love everyone else and still love yourself more.

What would happen?

What would your life look like – if you became your own best, best friend.  Had compassion for yourself. What if you decided that you matter, that you’re important, that you are precious?  Embraced yourself, hugged yourself and remembered that you are sacred and honored yourself.

Where on the to do list would you place yourself?

You are magnificent and divine and deserving of your own self love.

What would it be like if – you honored you, if you were your own possession unto yourself.  If you released yourself and let yourself off the hook, put yourself first, loved yourself unconditionally, forgave yourself, only held on to thoughts that uplift you and let go of all the thoughts that don’t.

If you just plain loved yourself – what would happen???

Blessings

Take time each day to be present.

To know what miracles live inside of you.

Take time each day to…

Open your arms up wide and say thank you.

Bow to Mother Earth and thank Her for Her bounty.

Honor and bless the directions, North, West, South, East.

Honor and bless the elements, Water, Air, Wind, Fire.

Honor and Bless your self.

Thank your angels, your spirit guides, animal spirit guides, ascended masters and teachers, your ancestors, all the divine beings who are with you surrounding you with their ultimate love and light.

Which Oracle is Calling to You

I’m creating a 44 oracle card deck *Magical Journey* and I’m so excited to share with you four of my oracles.  At first I thought they would all follow the same look, but as I’m discovering they each have their own distinct feel, look and vibrancy.

These oracles ask you to enter into your own inner sanctuary. That place where your wisdom lies. Where you can cross over thresholds into wonder. Where the mystery of this universe is waiting for you to unravel it.  So sit still, open your heart, listen and allow yourself to be taken into your inner journey –

Let the oracles speak to you, pick the one that is pulling at you, the words and images are meant to awaken you – reflect on them, recognize them, go beyond the basic meaning of the word that you’re familiar with.  Unravel it’s gifts – it holds magic for you.  You may want to start by looking the word up in the dictionary to refresh your knowledge of it.  Listen within, what feelings arise from this word, are they good, do they evoke fear, don’t stop the feelings let them rise let them guide and show you their energy, their mystery.

Only you can open the doors within…

oracle 1

oracle 3

oracle 2

oracle 5

And in the end I’m not sure if all of these will be a part of my final oracle deck, but for now they seem to and I hope you have fun with them.

I really would love it if you would let me know how the card you chose touched you. What magic did you uncover? How did it guide you?  Please share in the comments below or you can connect with me privately, I’d love to know.

Blessings from the Oracles

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
