Affirmation, Gratitude and Labyrinth

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, have read “that as I think so shall it be” so I have been taking those words to heart and mind so that I create a world of love and gratitude that is shared freely from me to you in the belief I am infusing the Universe with love for everyone to share in, as we are all connected at the heart. I loved that recently I learned that my heart started beating when I was inside my mom’s womb only 25 days old before I even had a brain and so did yours. I am a miracle of life, I am a spiritual being having a human experience and I am exploring the range of human emotions with courage, curiosity and compassion. I believe life is a Labyrinth, that I somewhere know where I am going as well as where I have been (even though I can’t remember like a black out drunk, maybe I drank to much in my past lives and that is why I can not remember exactly where I was? hahahaha) which is why I spend my days in gratitude and faith as I am safely on my path back home as are we all. I love my life. I love my life. I love my life, another mantra that has been repeated in my mind thousands. As I Think So Shall It Be. So I think Happy, Feel Happy and Exude Happy to create the Happiness and Calm I visualize in the world.

Today I am grateful for the tiger lilies that my friend Sharon Dudka gave to me for a home warming two homes ago and I have tended the flowers and watered them over the many months and now I have seven flower buds with one all the way open to life, one just starting and the rest ready to pop any day, (Woo Hoo my thumb is getting greener), for singing with the 100 Voices Choir led by the goddess of song Cari Burdett, we had fun, sounded great and helped celebrate the Canadian Multiculturalism Day (there was free food from many traditions and musicians that were from many countries too) and for visiting with Sarah Wilson while she travels through Canada sharing her gifts of intuition and love with everyone she meets. Thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your kind and cooperative self with me. Thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your caring and open self with me. I Love YOU! ♥ :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Love

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) am a spiritual being having a human experience. Spiritual books from the Bible to Buddha say I am a little part of the larger whole, a wave in the ocean or a gust of wind in the air so today I embrace my connection to the Universal source of all love. I practice loving whether I am taking out the trash or writing these affirmations hugging you or cleaning the floor. My attitude is my most important asset, the only aspect in my life that is completely under the control of my conscious mind. So today I go forth with happiness in my heart, love in my attitude and actions and acceptance in my soul. I have a choice. So today I choose love. I embrace you in all your emotional states, just as I embrace me and all my emotional states. Thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your patient and calm self with me.

Today I am grateful for all the fun I am having spreading the love, focusing on love and embracing love, for actually getting to practice being a loving, caring and compassionate human being, just to see if it is really true that the more love I give out the more love I get back and for patience the quality that allows me to be loving, caring and open knowing that I am depositing my love into the Universal Bank Of Love and that my dividends pay off at just the right moment through out my lifetime. Thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your open and caring self with me. I Love You! ♥ :~)

Today I am grateful for staying connected to my inner voice, my inner dream and my inner strength, for I am responsible for listening to my inner voice and following it’s dictates as best as I am able, for I know when I listen to me I feel content and satisfied and for acknowledging that at the end of the day I am the only person capable of listening to me because no one else can hear the little voice inside my head.

Affirmation, Gratitude and Manifesting

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) am whole and complete just as I am. I spend some time today looking back over my life enjoying that ten years ago I was in the process of manifesting all that I have now. I was repeating affirmations to myself such as I am a caring and loving lady so I know there is a loving and caring man out there for me somewhere so I am going to just keep meeting new men until I find the one that clicks. I am healthy and doing my best to love the people in my life unconditionally so the when I meet the right guy I am great at being a healthy and cooperative partner. I am the person I am looking for. I am blessed to share my life with a man that is ever more loving and compassionate every day. I am love and light here to share my warmth with my human companions. Thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your love and light with me too.

Today I am grateful for waking up once again and having a chance to infuse my world with love, joy and gratitude, for the ability I have to stay focused on my goal of being the change I want to see, where everyone is responsible for their emotional state and actions (I choose to be responsible for my behaviour so that I may be a good example of one who is responsible for my actions) and for all the beautiful smiles on the top of my Happiness Is Health group I appreciate your encouragement and love. Thank you for your time. thank you for sharing your smiles with me. I Love You. ♥ :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and A Wedding

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, am blessed to possess the ability to write, type and communicate my ideas about how loving my life as it is right now is the best way to manifest the life that is mine, awaiting to be discovered by the gift of a courageous heart that loves first, loves unconditionally, loves compassionately and loves acceptingly. I take full responsibility for my future happiness by being gloriously grateful today for everything I have. I am abundance. I am peace. I am the change I want to see in the world. I can experience a deep emotion at any time one arises and just let the emotion pass through me like a bolt of lightening going to ground. I transmute all the emotions that come into my psyche to the emotions of gratitude, acceptance and forgiveness for the best results of a content heart. I wake up and decide today is a good day. I love my life. I love my life. I love my life. One of my favourite mantras. Thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your kindnesses with me.

Today I am grateful for love, yesterday we went to a wedding, it was moving, you could tell these two souls fulfilled each other, the ceremony was filled with laughter, tears, music, the Threshold Choir I sing with sang at the start of the ceremony supporting the bride (as her chorus) as she sang an african lullaby to her husband to be, for the four gongs that Massimo Pintus created at Gaia Tone Instruments that were played at the beginning of the wedding, it was a feast for the ears listening to the sweet resonate tones of the gongs, and for diversity there were people from New Zealand, Jamaica, Sardinia, UK and many provinces of Canada so many accents and styles! I am feeling deep gratitude for the abundance of our world. Thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your perfectly human self with me. I Love You! ♥ :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Giving

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) am grooving on happiness! Since committing my happiness to words daily, my life is getting more fulfilling, more opportunities, more satisfaction and more open. Giving and Receiving are one and the same. I love that the better I am at being happy and positive the better every cell of my body feels! I am what I think, feel and do. So today I repeat friendly kind words, phrases and sentences to myself and others that are intended to bring joy and connection. I listen empathically to myself and others and my world softens. I listen for feelings encoded in the words of people I meet everyday. I deeply respect the sacred stories of each person who crosses my path and I do my best to witness their stories with compassion, acceptance and love. I am responsible for my actions, words, feelings and thoughts. So today I see you as the perfect spiritual being that you are. Thank you for sharing your perfect self with me. Thank you for your time.

Today I am grateful for the aboriginal people of the world the way they see all people connected to the natural world (yesterday Robert Cerinsand I went on a Compassion and Peace walk for our local Cowichan Tribes that have been having a hard time, it was a beautiful event where people of all ages came together to say to one another you matter, are important and worthy.) for the amazingly progressive community I live in the warmlands of Vancouver Island, BC (where we can buy 100% bio-diesel made from used french fry oil and yummy organic local greens for many months of the year) and for the the wisdom of all the grandmothers and grandfathers that have been here before and left us in books, memories and imagery. Thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your kind and caring self with me. I Love You. ♥ :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Potlucks!

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) observe all my emotions with calm compassion. Today I listen to all my emotions as I would my best friend, as my emotions are my guide through the labyrinth of life. All my emotions are important and valid. Once I listen to my emotions then I decide what to do with the emotions that are surging through my cells and neurons, do I respond to my emotions or do I give myself lots of empathy, a few deep breaths and repeat the mantra “Calmness is the most beautiful jewel of wisdom” and watch my emotional body quiet and relax. I am the author of my emotions the student of my soul. Thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your kind and talented self with me.

Today I am grateful for Potlucks where yummy food is eaten, nourishing conversations happen and friendships are renewed or created (I am blessed to live in a community where potlucks are often and comforting), for all the talented people who live in our valley, we have artists, stone masons, builders, jewelry artists, writers, tailors, seamstresses, doll makers, singers, musicians and many, many others, and for the realization that it is true the more love I give out the more love I get back. Thank you for your time. Thank you for sharing your kind and happy self with me. I Love You! ♥ :~)
