Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) practice being grateful for everything that happens every moment of the day. I am honest with myself about what is happening in the day and I create a story that brings me comfort about every situation. I believe that my emotional life is the most important part of my life because when I am happy, focused on all I have to be thankful for, my body produces chemicals that heal my physical form and keep it functioning at the highest level possible. There is even scientific evidence that proves happy thoughts make happy bodies. Woo HOO! Thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your friendly and calm self with me.
Today I am grateful for the ability to give and receive love unconditionally, to help all the people who cross my path to feel appreciated and connected, for the ability I have honed, practiced and share daily of being a stand for joy, forgiveness and compassion (my goal is to lighten the load of my earthly companions by listening deeply to their stories, so that they may feel heard) and for my commitment to know that deep in the centre of every human is the Universal energy that lives in all sentient beings of the world. I am blessed to know you. Thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your kind and loving self with me. I LOVE YOU! ♥ :~)

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) bring a positive mental attitude to all I do today. I have read many books that shared with me how beneficial it is to have a happy approach in all I think, feel and do. So I decided to make my life an experiment in happiness. I have read, studied and assimilated books that have fanned my flames of happiness into a huge conflagration that longs to spread to the hearts of my earthly companions. I am honoured to have made this decision as a teenager and that somehow I have stuck to my path even at times I did not know what I was doing. I am blessed in my earthly journey because I believe I am. I am thankful for everything and my heart relaxes. I am alive and I have a chance to make a difference in my life and maybe yours. Thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your kind and curious self with me.
Today I am grateful for the ability to learn, grow and change, for the understanding that I am a work in progress and as soon as I improve in one area of my life there are other issues in my life that arise to be counted and contended with and for the ability to just stop this last Sunday afternoon and take a nap with Robert Cerins I felt totally refreshed and safe when I awoke. I am blessed. Thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your perfect self with me. I LOVE YOU! ♥ :~)
Sayulita Internet Cafe is a wonderful place to check your e-mail in Sayulita, Mexico. Robert loved it so much he commemorated it through his brush strokes! :~) http://www.robertcerins.com

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) am responsible with money. I spend my money wisely and with loving intentions. Money/Abundance is a natural result of providing valuable service to the people of my planet. I share my skills in the healing arts openly and consistently. I love listening to the people in our community seeing how I can best serve their needs. I am a cooperative component in the world, caring, sharing and loving are what I do best. I invest in my emotional, physical and spiritual well being by staying focused on what inspires me to feel great. Feeling good means I am connected to the source of all life. I am living to love. Thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your compassionate and caring self with me.
Today I am grateful for caring for the four horses that live on the property here with us. When I was nine years old my family moved to a 20 acre property and I got to have horses, pigs, chickens, geese, goats, baby cows, dogs, cats and a rabbit. Yesterday when feeding the horses I felt that familiar feeling of some one needing my care for its survival and I realized that caring for animals is where my caring started. I love animals the way the horses smell and boss each other around and the way they care for one another. I am grateful that all the animals I have cared for have taught me, unconditional love, acceptance, and faithfulness. And lastly today I am grateful for my brain that has the power of memory and humour as animals are really funny. Thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your kind and loving self with me. I LOVE YOU! ♥ :~)

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) have but this one life time to share the gifts that have been bestowed upon me by life. I share the gift of love as often and freely as I can. I invest in my innermost self with loving words, phrases and sentences. I repeat, calmness is the most beautiful jewel of wisdom, I repeat, I am safe, I repeat, I think before I act or speak, I repeat, I am one with all life, I repeat, am love and light. I repeat these words with passion, commitment and clarity until I become these words and can be an example of what I want to see in our world. I get to do this with my time as a service to love and light, that which created me and caused my heart to beat when I was just 25 days into existing, before my mom knew I was even inside her. I am hope, light and faith in action. I allow all good to come to me. I am open to receiving, as giving and receiving are one. Thank you for your time.
I am grateful for a wonderful raw food potluck we attended last night we connected with many wonderful friends and I got to fulfill a dream I have had for decades I got to eat Cattails/Bull Rushes and they tasted yummy, for learning how and when to harvest all the parts of cattails and for the opportunity to experience something I had thought about for years I was gratitude dancing all night. I love when things happen that I have dreamed of for years, as that is what inspires me to keep dreaming! Thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your loving and perfect self with me.
This watercolour painting created by my kind and helpful husband Robert Cerins was inspired by the human need to love.

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) imagine the light of love in every person I meet. Some people have a big bright love light and some are like a teeny tiny led light shining on a dark, dark night. When I join any person’s light with mine we both shine brighter. I am honoured to get to share my light with the people of my planet. It is my responsibility, my commitment to my heart to share love every where I go without thought to whether I am getting love back from where I planted it. I am like the old lady that plants trees she will never sit in the shade of I plan on planting seeds of love I see flourish as well as the love I do not see flourish knowing that everyone flourishes at just the right time. The way flowers do some flowers blossom in March, some in April, some in May, and some in December we all blossom right on time. Thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your soft and loving self with me.
Today I am grateful for people asking to join our Happiness Is Healthy group (I do a gratitude dance after each person that asks) and gladly accept their request and make them a member, for all the different languages on my facebook page (I love connecting with the like minded people of our world), and for being a part of the Evergreen School Children and Apple Pie Event yesterday (the children loved painting on the canvases large 50 x 60 inches and small 4 x 6 inches) children are the light of the world at every age from 1 day old to 100 years old. Thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your bright and loving life with me. I LOVE YOU! ♥ :~)
This is an original painting that my husband photographed and then manipulated in Photoshop. I love it! :~)

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) believe that I can effect positive change in the world by being an example of happiness and positive energy. I am here on this planet to see how much joy and service I can render to my fellow humans. I receive joy and feed my soul when I am compassionate to you. I just love that the more I love people the better I feel. I practice loving everyone on this planet and my heart expands just like the Grinch’s did that fateful morning. I love you and I am safe. Thank you for your time! Thank you for sharing your perfect self with me. ♥ :~)
Today I am grateful for all the conscious farmers and food producers that nourish my body Teri Young and her partner (Pablo) Paul Plenti have some yummy greens for sale (in Cowichan Bay call 250-746-1764 to get some greens) they are some of our favourite food growers, for my drive to feed my body the most nourishing food on the planet to spend money on food instead of going to the doctor (I am 47 and a half and I take no medicine as I feel fabulous), and for practicing having a positive and hopeful attitude I love investing time in controlling my attitude as it is truly the only thing I have control over, plus then I am able to be happy. Thank you for sharing your kind and loving self with me. I LOVE YOU! ♥ :~)

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) believe that we can effect change on our planet by connecting to our inner source of love and gratitude. To cultivate my inner sense of love and gratitude (like one would cultivate a garden) I focus on all I have to be grateful for and think, act and grow from a feeling of safety. I am always safe as I am a spiritual being having a human experience. I trust that the most important part of me is unseeable, infinite and immeasurable. I am the best example of kindness and compassion I can muster every moment of every day. I choose to meet myself and you with an open heart and an open mind. Thank you for sharing your beautiful and kind self with me.
Today I am grateful for the chance tomorrow to spread happiness to children at Evergreen School Children and Apple Pie Event in Cobble Hill, BC. (Robert Cerins and I will be hosting a painting booth where we will get the children to say one thing they love about themselves and then we will ask them to think about the quality they most enjoy about themselves while them make a mark or two on a large canvas.) For all the abundance in my life, I feel supported and nourished and for all the beautiful wild life I get to witness while living on Vancouver Island, deer, eagles, toads, ants, mushrooms, crows, seagulls, owls, canadian geese, shrews, (as a friend of ours cat had a shrew in the house yesterday and it needed relocation to the outside world again), racoons, opussums and for all the other animals that live here that I have not seen cougars and bears. I am blessed to live where the animals still live. Thank you for sharing your perfect self with me. I LOVE YOU! ♥ :~)
