Do We Need External Validation

The greatest gift that we can give to ourself is to know ourself and believe in our own self-worth.  I think that’s one of our purposes in this life, to grow within and uncover the layers and layers to get to the core of who we are, believe and know our true authentic selves.

validation

How much do you hold yourself back because you don’t believe in your ability?

Too often we have a great idea but we don’t unfold it because we fear that it’s not good enough.  We fear rejection or criticism, and our ideas and dreams never come to light.  We disempower ourselves and doubt our own self-wroth, we sit and wait for that validation, for someone to come and tell us how wonderful we are, how brilliant our ideas are.  We yearn for that outside confirmation that will give us that go ahead sign, yes you can do it validation, before we dare to go after what we want or share our dreams with the world.   And yes, it’s great when others validate us and affirm our self-worth and tell us how wonderful we are, that’s all good and great, take it, thank them but that should not be what validates us.  Our validation should be from within ourselves, we need to know it in our own hearts, in our bones, that’s where our power comes from, that’s where the magic lies.

We are sacred beings and we are worthy of all that our heart wants and desires.  We’re a star within the cosmos, we each have great value and we each are worthy, just as we are.  We need to not only know that, but embody it, believe it, we are the miracle we’re looking for.

When we know our own self worth we are empowered with our own self validation.

How I Set Myself Up for a Successful Outcome

On the 18th I’m scheduled for a knee replacement surgery, I’ll be in the hospital overnight and then I’ll be in a rehab center, I don’t know for how long before I’m able to come home.

I’m not going to lie, yes I am concerned and I am at times flipping out, but at the same time I know that everything will be ok, the surgery will be a success, and I will get through this and will be perfect and happy and grateful that I’m after it all, and everything turned out great.

I’m trying to hold on to my deepest beliefs here, that what we put out into the universe with our thoughts and feelings is what we receive back from the universe.  So  I’m envisioning me after everything, healthy and well and feeling so happy.  Seeing myself walking around my neighborhood, stopping and taking photos.  Thanking our Great Mystery our Divine Mother, my angels and all the celestial beings who are with me helping me and blessing me.  Giving thanks that the surgery was a success and I’m now able to travel.  I’m on a cruise.  I’m climbing mountains YEAH!!! (well maybe the mountains thing will stay in my imagination :), and  I’m feeling extremely happy and giving thanks that I’m healed and well.  I’m blessing and thanking the surgeon and his team, and all the people who helped me.  Thank you – Thank you – Thank you.

crystal

When I decided to bring my rose quartz crystal with me to have its loving energy, I wanted to take a photo for this blog post and the funny thing is that the crystal kept on falling out of my hand and I couldn’t hold on to it to snap a picture.  After about the fifth time I finally got the message, LOL, I was using the wrong background. The minute I realized this, my mothers needlepoint with the Hummingbirds that she made for me years ago came into my mind.  There was more to this than just my crystal. The Hummingbird is bringing the message of hope and jubilation.  Of joy, renewal, healing and more.  And of course my darling mother letting me know she’s with me, watching over me, all will be well.  A sign of hope to take with me.

Life is not always sunshine and flowers and magical fluffy stuff.  With every new age come new challenges.  I’m 72 now and my body is not what it was when I was 20, or 30 or even 60, or last year.  And so, I’m moving with the flow, holding on to my vision of wellness, being grateful, having faith in the process and allowing it to unfold in the way that it’s supposed to – divinely.

Learning to Embrace my Imperfections

I pulled this card today, and I wanted to share it with you because it’s the perfect message right now.  It asks “What can you release to connect to the source of your power?…”  It’s perfect because I’ve been beating myself up over having put my foot in my mouth a couple of days ago, and I’m still feeling bad over it and I need to release that out of me so I can connect with my inner power.  Can’t do it if I’m holding on to my mishap, and putting myself down with negative self talk.

rose8

Sometimes I say something, or do something without thinking, it just comes out of me, and later it hits me and I’m like OMG!!! I can’t believe I said that or did that.  When that happens I have a habit of beating myself up and making myself crazy with negative self talk.  I should have known better.  Whatever possessed me?  Why didn’t I stop myself?  I should have…and I’m thinking about how what I said, or did, is perceived by others or how it affected others and what must they think of me, and what can I do now to change it, and…OMG I just can’t believe myself… And the beating up on myself goes on and on…and all it does is make me anxious, stressed out and I feel even worse.

This is part of my growing and honestly, learning to embrace my imperfections has not been easy and I haven’t found that one quick fix yet.  And hey, if you know of one please let me know because I’ll take all the help I can get here.

So here’s the wisdom this card offers – It’s during these times that I have to stop and remind myself that stuff happens and I’m not perfect.  I’m still working on myself and instead of beating myself up, I should ask myself how is this barrage of negative self talk helping? Am I empowering myself right now?  Look at it, learn from it, forgive myself and release it so – I can stand in my power.

If you relate to this message, I’d love to hear from you, feel free to share.

An Invitation for 2019

My intention for 2019… a sweeter life.

This year I’m inviting  all of us to remember that we’re already cherished and loved by the one greatest universal force.

We’re invited to love ourselves without limitations and without guilt and as deeply as we can.

new year

We’re invited to shed the light on who we truly are – magnificent – deserving – worthy – loving – healthy – amazing – resilient… humans having a life here, just one of many.  Experiencing the spectrum of what life can bring us.  Learning to navigate through the rough waters, our fears and the sun-shiny days.

We’re invited to remember that we are more powerful than what we think.  That we can overcome, remove the walls, and reign supreme over our lives.  We are the magic wands of our life. (here)

This is my prayer for 2019, my invitation – to share what I’m inspired to create and what I know about living a sweeter life.  To cherish every moment even those that will have me fall off the wagon and into the pit, and the emotional break down ones, and that I can pull myself out and I can open my heart and be more and give more and receive more.  And that I can, and we all can, shine our light a lot brighter than what we are.

So I invite you to join me on this journey in 2019 and live the invitation of –

a sweeter life.

With gratitude and love – Happy 2019!!! Wishing all health, prosperity, happiness, love, magic and lots of blessings!!!
