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.

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.

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.

It’s Spring…YEEEAAAHHH!!

Spring is showing herself, I can feel her in the air, time to let go of the heaviness you’ve been carrying around with you and bring in the fresh.

Bring yourself out of hibernation and step into spring with lightness, leave all the heaviness behind you and open the door to expectations for new growth.

Welcome change, revisit your dreams, keep the ones you still want, let go of the ones you’re not ready for or the ones that are not for you anymore.

quote

Your life is a magical journey; find the joy and magic in the small and ordinary.

Get curious, plant new seeds, and let the magic sprout.

Maybe start a new ritual practice. Doesn’t have to be anything big and heavy. You can repeat an affirmation a few times,

I AM A PART OF AND ONE WITH THE ALL

I AM OPEN TO RECEIVE ALL THE GOOD

I AM PROSPEROUS

I AM OPEN TO RECEIVE MIRACLES TODAY

Just stopping for one minute every day and placing your focus and attention on your self, will create a change in your self that will transform you.

You’re welcome to use my affirmations above or create your own.  Do what feels good for you and if you can come and share with us here in the comment section bellow, love to chat.

Happy Spring Blessings
