A Reminder for Gratitude

Happy Friday friends,

We’re inside a tough time right now, but this too shall pass and we will get through it.

Now more than ever we need to have faith, hope, keep a positive mindset and love in our heart.  And we need to remind ourselves of the bounty that surrounds us and give thanks for all that we have to be grateful for.

I have a rosemary bush that grows outside my house, it was here when I moved in and is still absolutely gorgeous.  I love the scent of rosemary and I love the little purple flowers that show themselves in the Spring.  I love cutting some sprigs and bringing them inside so I can admire their beauty and smell them as I walk by.  It uplifts my spirit and fills me with hope and gratitude.  I am grateful.

I invite you to take a moment to reflect on the good that is around you.  Bring a little sunshine into your home, say thank you, be grateful for today.

And I’d love it if you would share your gratefulness today here with us.

Blessings

A Little Beauty for the Heart

Sunday blessings friends.

During this trying time, I like most all of us, am trying to stay calm, be aware of what’s going on, stay home, which I’m actually quite happy to do, since I’m a homebody at heart, and dealing with the situation the best I can.

They say that looking at beautiful things can improve the quality of your life and create happiness within.  I think that we should give ourselves something beautiful to look at every day and especially now, reflect on the beauty around you and nourish your heart.

Yesterday I spent time looking through some of my recent photos I don’t think I’ve shared, and found these that made me feel good, happy and smile.  I think that flowers have that affect on most of us.  A connection with nature that uplifts our spirit.  And strangely enough I feel a connection to the entire universe, a oneness.

Love, prayers and many blessings!

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.

Blessings

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.
