A Sunday Love Note

Hello everyone,

How are you now a couple of weeks into the new year?  I feel really excited and ready to create new content and move into a new direction.  I’ll be sharing ways to “Love Yourself” and “How to Manifest Your Desires” to live a Sweeter Life.  So psyched!!!  🙂

And talking about self-love, here’s a little Sunday love note reminding you to –

pink flower

Go gently with yourself today.

Ask yourself how you want to feel.  What would make you feel pampered today?

Put away your to-do list and give yourself a little rest, it’s OK to do nothing sometime. 🙂

I was inspired by the lovely Sarah Jensen today, I’m doing a journaling course with her, you can find her over here.

I’d love to hear from you, how are you pampering yourself today?

Blessings

Supercharge Your Day with These 3 Simple Steps.

Hello, Happy New Year!!! I Hope you had a wonderful New Year, mine was a quiet evening at home watching Hallmark movies 🙂

Can you believe it?  This is not just a new year but also a new decade, WOW!  I wanted in my first 2020 blog post, to share with you the one thing that I learned from the past decade that has created magick in my every day, and that’s – the way I start my day.

You know what?  I learned that you do have a say so in how your day unfolds, and you do have a say so in how you are willing to feel.  Every day you have the choice, you can start your day in a way that will uplift you, motivate you, inspire you, support you, fill you with joy…Of course sometimes life just happens, and then you get to decide how you handle it.

supercharge your day

I didn’t always know this.  I used to get up and first thing turn on the TV and listen to the news while everything from the previous day and before, was playing over and over again in my head.  What someone said or did, what was on my to do list, the meeting I didn’t want to go to.  Look at emails and social media. My day was up and running from the first second in the morning.  I felt stressed, overwhelmed and upset, right from the start of the day, and my day mostly followed in that way.

My morning routine now starts very different, no news, no emails, no social media, no thinking of anything that upsets me, that’s my rule.  First thing in the morning is my precious, cherished – time for me.  I am present to me.  I give love to me.  I write in my journal and I set the tone of what I expect today.  And I learned this from Pam Grout, every morning I declare that something wonderful, magical, awesome is happening for me today.  And amazingly, every day something awesome happens.

Here are my three simple steps that will supercharge your day:

1 – Put a smile on your face as soon as you wake. A smile tricks your brain into happiness.

2 – Say three loving words to yourself. I love me.  I am great.  I am divine.  I believe in myself.  I am good.  I am courageous…Say any three words that will make you feel good.  If you can’t say three, then start with one word and go from there.

3 – Declare that you’re having an amazing day today and everything is working out perfect for you. Think of how you want to feel, and envision how the day will unfold.  If you have a meeting scheduled at work, see yourself leaving the meeting smiling and happy because everything went great.

And yes, I know I said 3, but for me journal writing is a non-negotiable super power, so I’m including it.

4 – Write it down. Writing down your intention/vision/feelings packs a lot of power.

So here you have it, my 3 simple steps I do every morning that supercharges my days.

It’s January, in a brand new year and brand new decade. Time to start something new. Make time for you.  Set the tone, place the intention, envision it, feel it, write it, and –

Supercharge your day.

I’d love to hear from you.

Blessings

What a Kind Word Can Do

I don’t think this will be a surprise to anyone, but giving away a kind word is free.  A positive kind word will definitely inspire an inner shift in how we feel.  Just think of how you felt the last time someone gave you a compliment out of the blue, telling you – great job…you look beautiful…I bet that felt pretty good, It most likely lit you up and put a smile on your face.  🙂

kind word

A positive kind word can change someone’s day or even days.  So, let’s dole it out, let’s give it freely from our heart, it’s free, especially now during the holiday season when we’re all so busy rushing about trying to get it all done, and maybe feeling a bit stressed with all that is on our to do lists.  Receiving a kind word can uplift our spirit and create a sense of well-being.  Just a simple – thank you – coming from the heart can touch someone in a special way and transform their day.

And you never know, your kind word may have a ripple effect, that person now may turn around and do the same, and change someone else’s day.

So let’s do it, my kind word for you lovelies is – You are AMAZING!!!

Kindest Blessings

December is all about Being in the Moment

December is all about being in the moment.

Finding that one moment in the day that brings you joy, that slows you down for an instant, that makes you feel the wonder.  That you set aside your to do lists, stop the rushing about and just enjoy – being in the moment – Breathe…

birds30

This is my – in the moment – today.  I opened the shade and WOW!

Every morning I’m blessed with the magnificence of these birds, I say hello my friends, and we greet the day together.  But for some reason this morning it just hit me in a special way.  I stood there staring at them, with a huge smile on my face, just watching them for a moment longer than I usually do.  And it came to me that I’m making December a month of stopping, even if it’s just for a moment, and breathing in the wonder of this amazing Universe.

Join me in making December a month of being in the moment and finding a WOW every day for yourself.  Set the intention for it and it will show itself to you.  You may also want to keep a journal of the WOW you find every day, so at the end of the month you can look at all the wonder moments you had.

I’d love to hear from you, love to know your WOW, feel free to post in the comments every day if you wish.

Have a magnificent December everyone.

Blessings

The Secret of Affirmations

“Affirmations are the beginning point of change.” ~ Louise Hay

I wholeheartedly believe in positive affirmations being transformational.

2affirmI first learned about affirmations from Louise Hay, and to be honest at first I was afraid to say them.  Saying positive, uplifting, encouraging, or healing words to myself felt like something taboo.  I didn’t know it then but, by making that conscious decision to say them, even while I was filled with fear, taboo fear, I was beginning on a journey of healing and changing my life in ways that I couldn’t even imagine because I started to tap into the law of the universe in a positive way.

As I grow my affirmations change to support me where I am at.  I change words, I let go of words, and not a day goes by without me affirming who I am, what I am, and how I am.  To me an affirmation is a declaration that I affirm about myself.  I’m telling the universe, this is the truth of who I am, and what I want, and how I see myself.  And then I believe wholeheartedly in the magick of the affirmation I’m declaring.  This is the big secret behind every affirmation, no affirmation will work if you say it, but don’t believe in it, if you say – money flows to me easily and magically – and inwardly you believe completely the opposite, this will never work, guaranteed it will not.  And of course you have to take action here and do the work, you can’t just sit on your bed and say an affirmation and expect fire works to go off.

Affirmations have helped me to overcome challenging, self sabotaging, negative thoughts.  Realize dreams.  Change negative energy at work.  Help me heal, eliminate stress…they have been transformational.

Magick and miracles have appeared in my life because of affirmations and they can make a difference in your life too.

I’d love to hear from you.

Using the Law of the Universe

The law of the universe states that what you place your focus and attention on will multiply.

Every day place your attention on being grateful, even if what is showing up in front of you may not be in all rational ways anything that you could consider grateful.  If someone cuts you off on the road, just think about it, you’re not hurt, it could have been worse, so be grateful.  I am grateful that I am safe, and let it go.

gratefulness

Or, have you noticed that when something goes wrong and you focus on the wrong only more wrong things follow and than at the end of the day you say, what a day everything went wrong, first this happened and than I got late to the meeting, and… it was just one of those days where everything went wrong.

When something happens and you think about it, and you carry it with you and you’re giving it attention and you’re mad about it, what you’re doing is you’re now in a lower vibration and as you’re holding on to that energy it’s like you’re telling the universe, yes, I want more of this.  And from here more things appear for you to continue in that same low vibration.

So, when something goes not your way, find something about it to be grateful for, or just let it go and say to yourself, everything is working out perfectly for me today.  Thank you universe.

I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Blessings
