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.

A Message from Your Angels

Be conscious of nourishing your joy.

It’s so easy to get lost inside the everyday hustle and to forget your joy.

conscious joy

Reminder alert here –

Nourish your joy every day, don’t let it fall to the wayside and let yourself get caught up in negative thoughts that are not serving you well.  Be conscious of your joy, if you’re not feeling it, stop and ask yourself what are you feeling?  How important is that feeling to you?  If it’s not brining you joy, why are you holding on to it?  Let it go, get conscious and do something that brings you joy, and hold on to that instead.  This can be as simple as taking a break and sitting quietly having a cup of coffee, calling on your angels and asking them to help you feel joy, drawing a doodle for a few minutes, or mindfully affirming that you are joy.  Your body, mind and soul will thank you, and your angels will be dancing all around you.

Your angels want you to know that joy is your gift, and you’re here to feel joy – allow joy to flourish.

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!!!

A Simple Way to Create a Little Altar

I love creating small altars that I can place around my home, they always fill me with great joy, like this little altar that I’m using as a table scape, that captures the season in a magical way for me.

inspire

You don’t have to spend a lot of money or go all fancy, just collect items that you already have.  Let yourself be guided by your spirit and put together things that are meaningful to you, and feels good to you.

I used a serving platter and put pine cones that I’ve had for a couple of years, some of my crystals, the green branches from the flowers I bought yesterday, three tea candles, something I always have in my home, and the inspiration rock I bought for 99 cents at Hobby Lobby.

Every time I walk by it, I stop and allow it to work its magic and I say thank you, or I’ll say a little blessing.  For me this is a sacred act of self-care, a moment in which I can get lost into and receive the gifts of Spirit.

I hope I’m inspiring you to create your own magical altar and I’d love it if you share it here in the comments.

I Rise Up

A lifetime habit of putting yourself down and believing you’re not good enough or capable enough, or educated enough, doesn’t end just because you said a mantra, journaled about it, affirmed that you are worthy.  Or because you became more spiritual, are meditating or saying positive affirmations…

i rise up

A lifetime habit of putting yourself down is a work in progress and no matter how far you’ve come, those crazy old I’m not good enough thoughts, I don’t know enough, I don’t measure up, let me not get too big, show off.  I’m not whatever – enough – will when you least expect them to, they will creep back into your consciousness, stop you dead in your tracks, and leave you frozen in time unable to move.  And the thing is that you may not even notice that you’re inside the self doubting yourself roller coaster…

You have to always be conscious of the thoughts that are inside you ruling you.  When you become aware and realize, just stop for a minute, and ask yourself –

Is that really true?  Do I really believe that I’m not good enough? Do I really believe I’m not worthy enough? Or, deserving enough?  Do I really want to make myself less important?  Maybe you want to journal about it and go deeper, there is always another deeper layer, and find out where these thoughts are coming from, or why.  And when the answer rises, say thank you, thank you, thank you, and – rise up!

August – A Month of Pampering Yourself

There are many ways that we can pamper ourselves.  Take a hot bath with scented oils.  Get a massage.  Take a nap.  Buy ourselves flowers, a gift, take a walk in nature, see a movie with a friend…but we don’t think about pampering ourself with the thoughts that we allow to overtake our mind and body.

Every thought that we have holds either a negative or positive energy that affects our entire selves.  Our thoughts don’t just stay in our mind, they filter through to every cell in our body.  They get embedded in our blood, our skin, our bones.  They get into every nook and crevice.  They park themselves inside of us creating havoc in our bodies if they are negative thoughts.

Every thought dictates our well being.  Every thought heals us or not, makes us feel happy or not, loving or not, angry or not.  Every thought creates a feeling which creates an emotion, which creates our experience, which creates our actions. And with every thought we have every day, we’re living and experiencing our life.

I’m making August a month of mindful pampering for me.  Reminding myself every week of another area I’ve been neglecting.  Life happens and things just get away from me and I have to bring myself back to what’s important for me.  Living everyday mindfully and consciously aware of what thoughts and words I allow into my mind and body.  What I allow to rule, regulate and shape me, helps me to stay more open to what’s important for me, and that is filling myself with loving healing energy and connected with Divine Mother.

What I do is I set my intention to be conscious of negative thoughts I’m holding on to.  It may be something someone said at work, or something that I’m thinking about myself. Words that I’m using to berate myself, thoughts of not being good enough…I stop myself, I thank that thought for being here and I tell it I don’t need it anymore and I change it to a positive thought.  I only hold on to good loving thoughts about myself.  

My trick for reminding myself to only hold on to words and thoughts that are empowering for me, is I place sticky notes around my house to remind myself.  I’ll write on them – be conscious of your thoughts.  I’ll place a sticky note on my bathroom mirror, on my refrigerator, on my computer, on the table where I sit, on the dashboard of my car, anyplace where I will see them throughout the day.   I deserve good thoughts.  This works like magic.

Inner calm, a feeling of peace, living at a higher vibration.  Feeling in harmony with universal forces, manifesting our desires, all of this happens when we remove the negative thoughts that block us, limit us, disempower us, that are influencing our every day living.

So make August a month of pampering yourself with thoughts that uplift and heal!

Blessings
