Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) practice caring for me, my body, my mind and my spirit today. The only person that is responsible for my health, my happiness and my harmonious thoughts is me. So I spend time appreciating me today. I look in the mirror as I brush my teeth and I say to me “I Love Me”, “I Respect Me”, “I Trust Me”, “I Value Me”, “I Listen To Me”, I repeat these words or other words that bring me comfort and I feel confident. It is up to me to instill poise, patience, confidence and assertiveness in my heart so that I am able to care for MY needs today. When all my needs are met, then every cell of my being is overflowing with energy to share. The more kindly I speak to me, the more forgiving I am of my flaws, the more I am able to accept everyone else as perfect just as they are. Thank you for accepting yourself as perfect today. Thank you for allowing yourself to blossom today. I Love You. :~)

Today I am grateful for sticking to my twenty minute meditation sessions every morning, since going to see Asrael Zemenick, who reminded me that I would feel more centred daily by meditating each morning, for starting to do some exercises in the early hours of the day, after my meditation so that the first things I do at daybreak are nourishing to my body, mind and spirit, since I am the only person who is capable of caring for me, I make it a priority each day and for knowing that the better I care for me the better I am going to be at caring for my family, friends and clients. Thank you for making yourself a priority today. Thank you for nourishing your whole being today. I Love You. :~)
To love myself daily is my most important job.

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) practice the art of loving what is today. I trust that I am right where I am supposed to be, so that means to me, that I am willing to trust where everybody else is too. This earthly journey is easiest for me to walk when I act as if I am an enlightened spiritual being detached from worldly outcomes. The more I put one foot in front of the other on my path to cheering up the planet knowing that the Universe will lead me to the right people, at the right time allows me to joyously continue to write these affirmations. I embrace my role as the bringer of smiles. I exude kindness by holding doors, volunteering for projects that warm my heart and lending my hands to friends in need. Thank you for exuding kindness today. Thank you for bravely following your heart. I Love You.
Today I am grateful for the growth of my Reflexology/Reiki business, as sharing the healing energy the Universe provides me eases the discomforts of the people who have found me to be trustworthy, gladdens my heart, for one of my clients trying the castor oil nightly belly rub I suggested, where the person massages castor oil into their tummy before going to sleep then puts a hot water bottle or heating pad on and their tummy, which encourages the soothing of the castor oil to seep into their cells creating healing during the night and for the realization that the more I accept life just the way it is with an attitude of gratitude for everything that happens the more I am in the flow of life energy. Thank you for accepting everything in your life today with an open heart. Thank you for sharing your joy with me. I Love You. :~)
Thank you Christy Greenwood for taking this lovely image of me sharing a reflexology session.
I love to share a reflexology/reiki session to relax, rejuvenate and relieve soreness. :~)

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) have a chance today to care for my entire planet by caring for me. The more I am aware of my personal vibration, the emotions I am exuding and the words I am speaking, the better my chance of emitting peace and calmness. I trust the spiritual masters who have come before me when they have said that as I am, so is the world. So today I choose to think before I act or speak so that I am happy with my tone of voice and responses I give in all situations. When I spend a few moments with my thoughts and feelings before I express myself, I am clear headed and able to communicate my emotions in ways that are easy for the person I am speaking with to understand, then being understood I have a better chance of getting my needs met because I have connected with the person’s heart. Thank you for connecting to your heart today. Thank you for expressing your needs calmly. I Love You.
Today I am grateful for men like Adam Olsen who is helping to raise awareness that in a sacred water way called the Saanich Inlet near my home there is an attempt to install a floating Liquid Natural Gas plant and a 600 megawatt generation station to power the whole plant, for the chance I have to be a part of the solution, so I shall volunteer and write a letter to the National Energy Board of Canada to tell them I do not want a LNG plant on the pristine Vancouver Island, BC, and for feeling empowered to spread the message that burning 100% bio-diesel in our car made by the Cowichan Bio-diesel Coop is the funnest way for me to help reduce my carbon foot print, support a local business and take care of my car as bio-diesel is better for my car’s engine as it is for my lungs. We are the change, we wish to see in the world. Thank you for caring for the world around you today as it is our world. Thank you for believing that you are a powerful spiritual being here to love. I Love You. heart emoticon :~)

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) choose to focus on my everlasting spiritual energy today. The energy that animates my body was a gift from the source of all life. The more I focus on how I am connected to every other being the safer I feel. When I allow heartfelt connections to flourish from my heart to the heart of everyone I meet, I feel secure. The more I focus on the similarities of all beings the stronger I feel. I realize that this universe is influenced by my emotions so the more my emotions are grounded in joy, compassion and caring the more my I am aligned with source energy. When I am aligned with the energy of the Universe I feel calm and content, which delights every cell of my body. Thank you for connecting to your heart today. Thank you for bravely opening your mind to your spiritual self. I Love You.
Today I am grateful for my health as I am every day, because I was a witness to my mom’s life long health issues, from being given too many x-rays as a teenager to cure her acne, at only 73 years young she is unable to walk or even stand on her own, for knowing that I am what I eat so I nourish my body with whole food, meat raised in as natural a setting as possible, the cows I eat, eat grass, (we buy our beef from Henry & Jones Grass Fed Beef https://www.facebook.com/HenryJones-Grass-fed-Beef-35253…/…/) the vegetables I eat were nourished by farmers that grow their food with passion in the Cowichan Valley where I live and for how good I feel drinking only water or teas I purchased in bulk from the Community Farm Store or Harmonic Arts as I trust those companies to source out amazing plants for me to consume. Thank you for nourishing your body with whole fresh food today. Thank you for appreciating you today. I appreciate you, I Love YOU! <3 :~)
connecting to source energy is easiest when I close my eyes to the world.

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) embrace the full range of animal emotions that are born within my heart. The more I allow my emotions to flow easily the more alive I feel. When an emotion fills my heart, be it a pain filled or pleasure filled, my goal is to be with the feelings my heart is expressing so that I am able to process the emotions in the moment. When I was 15 years old my father died suddenly and the grief that filled my heart was so big I did not even have the memory of me finding him on the ground unconscious for about a decade after his death. What I learned from that experience is that the only way to heal the grief is to feel the grief. So today I make friends with grief so that at the times when grief comes to my heart I am able to deal with it in a manner that is healthy. Thank you for courageously feeling your grief. Thank you for sharing your emotions with your trusted friends. I Love You. :~)

Today I am grateful for my ability to deal with grief in constructive ways like talking a walk, talking my grief out with trusted friends and just being willing to cry my eyes out for as long as it takes to wash the mourning out of my heart, for the realization that grief is inevitable while I walk this earthly plane, so I do my best to experience the grief in my life with the heart of a wise sage that knows only the body dies but the essence of each person is what lives on forever, as Einstein said “energy only changes forms but can never be destroyed” (which is the first law in thermal dynamics) so I trust in the physics of life that all my relations are now energy beings with no bodies which makes me feel safer and for the time I spent in Alcoholics Anonymous which taught me that talking out my pain and joy is the most fun and connecting way to live. Thank you for sharing all your emotions with a trusted friend. Thank you for bravely feeling your emotions. I Love You. heart emoticon :~)

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) choose to laugh at myself today. When I make a mistake today instead of berating myself in the quiet of my mind, I realize that I am learning something new and that is why I made a mistake, so I offer myself some forgiveness, praise myself for attempting a new venture and patiently clean up the mess I made, then do my best to start the task again once I have taken a deep breathe or two. I remind myself that mistakes are good because they give me job security as I then have a dilemma to solve which makes me smarter and more skilled. The more I focus on the small successes and forget easily the blunders I create, the happier I am. Since being happy is my goal then I have once again succeeded in a small way. Plus every time I am happy I increase my oxytocin that increases my entire well being. Thank you for laughing at yourself today. Thank you for increasing your oxytocin. I Love You.
Today I am grateful for getting to share a Reflexology/Reiki session this morning, the session starts with a foot bath for your feet, next I tenderly dry your feet, then you get on the massage table and I rub your feet, hands and head, finishing off the session with a bit of Reiki, for the clients I have that trust me to offer their bodies, minds and spirits a bit of comfort and relief from Source Energy and for the intuition that comes to me while I in a deep state of meditation during the healing sessions I offer, I feel that I receive something valuable each time I give a healing treatment. Thank you for caring for you today. Thank you for generously sharing your energy today. I Love You. :~)

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) give myself permission to be happy today. I allow myself to think about my needs, wants, dreams and goals. The more I focus on my needs the better I shall be able to care about the needs of the people I share my life with. I have learned that I must fill my heart with gladness before I am able to share the gladness in my heart with anyone. The best way I have found to care for my heart is to listen to it’s whispers, to be open to my heart’s intuitive wisdom and to nourish my heart with food that creates in my heart harmony. The condition of my heart is in my capable and caring hands, so I nurture my heart today and I feel whole. Thank you for creating wholeness in your life today. Thank you for wisely sharing your energy. I Love You.
Today I am grateful for the people who care for my food before I get to buy it, the farmers, the farm hands, the grocery clerks, the store owners, the truck drivers, the sun for shining down on the crops and the rain for nourishing the plants, for realizing that I am in a interdependent relationship with everything, I need the sun, I need the rain, I need shelter, I need to have relationships that nurture my soul, so in understanding that I am in need of many things to thrive, I do my best to share my energy easily and for trusting that when I do my best daily to be of service to all people, places and things that need me in an attitude of gratitude, I am ensuring that the universe looks after my needs in kind. I give out what I want to receive. Thank you for giving out the energy you want to receive back too. Thank you for waking up hopeful. I Love You. :~)
When I share with an open heart everyone wins. :~)
