Affirmation, Gratitude and Thoughts

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, embrace all my thoughts as my friends. I value my frustrated thoughts, my kind thoughts, my fearful thoughts all my thoughts as my buddies letting me know what is going on for me. I understand that if I am frustrated I need to listen to those thoughts with an open heart and patient ear what is it that need to feel content? I cuddle my fearful thoughts with calmness knowing that this too shall pass what ever emotion I am going through. And most of all I take my thoughts and emotions lightly, listening to them deeply but with the understanding that I am a powerful spiritual being that incarnated for the soul purpose of feeling these emotions, embodying the emotions and most of all acknowledging that I am not these emotions. I am a wave, a particle and atoms joined together in perfectly imperfect harmonious human life powerful and frail all at the same time.
Today I am grateful for my friend Payson Adams we have been sisters by choice for more than 12 years she is one of the most courageous ladies I know and I am blessed to have her in my life (she actually gained shero status in my book today), for Nature knowing how much I would love coffee, tea, chia seeds, chocolate and yams created them before I was even born and that the many ancestors figured out how to make them edible and yummy and for getting to spend Halloween 2012 with some wonderful friends, loved ones and their children as children is what make holidays happy. Have a Bootiful day! Thank you for the moments we spend together. Thank you for sharing your loving and caring heart with me. I Love You. ♥ :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Sauerkraut

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, choose to live like one of the cells of my body. My body contains trillions of cells that all seem to get along, cooperate and co-create me everyday. So I figure that since I am made of trillions of little cooperative beings than it is possible for me to get along with the few billion people that live on this planet with me. So today I go out into the world knowing that deep in my being I am a cooperative being, knowing my survival is dependent of your survival. So today may all beings be comfortable and content so that every part of my being may be able to be comfortable and content. I choose to be comfortable with everything that happens, everything is as it ought to be since I believe that I am exactly where I am supposed to be for my souls growth we must collectively be right where we are supposed to be for humanities evolution. Thank you for your splendid time. Thank you for sharing your perfect self with me. I Love You. ♥ :~)
Today I am grateful for Snoops so that there is some way to find out what is Photoshopped and what is real as Photoshop can create an image that looks like anything and everything, for understanding that before I believe anything on the internet I need to check it out and research as best I can so that I only pass on information that is factual, and for enjoying what is faked on the internet for what it is human creativity at its best. Thank you for your precious time. Thank you for sharing your open heart with me. I Love You. ♥ :~)

We love helping our gut flora with natural fermentation. Raw food rules. :~)


Affirmation, Gratitude and Our VW Van

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, choose to laugh and be lighthearted. Twenty seconds of laughing provides as much of a work out as three minutes of rowing. (The previous information was learned from reading the book The Heart’s Code) I love to laugh and to make others laugh as well. I bring a my sense of humour and loud laugh every where I go. In fact just the other day my mother in law said my laugh is so funny if I just went on stage and laughed then everyone would laugh and that too made me laugh. My sense of humour has gotten me through the many learning experiences that have made up my life. I have learned to take the events of my life as they come and to create a story that is happy and lots of times really funny and makes all my days interesting and delightful. Just like kayaking in the rain with Sarah the other day she said to me you did not complain once and I thought to my self well neither did you Sarah Wilson! I love my life.
Today I am grateful for getting to have dinner with Robert Cerins family and his sister Pipi Tustian’s family last night.  We took our homemade sauerkraut and then for dinner they were having sauerkraut too, for going next to drop off a birthday card to a friend and then getting invited to dinner with their family too and boy it was good, fresh vegetables from their garden and peppers galore, and for waking up this morning to see a picture of me posted by Sarah Wilson of the beginning of our wonderful 2 hour kayak trip (it was empowering to feel strong and healthy enough to paddle a kayak for two hours and have no sore muscles the next day.) Thank you for your precious time. Thank you for sharing your perfect self with me. I Love You! ♥ :~)
Here is a picture of our old VW van that Robert and I spent 9 months traveling in. :~)

Traveling in this van for nine months with my husband Robert when we had just met was a dream vacation and a great way to get to know each other. :~) Love rules!

Affirmation, Gratitude and Feeling Supported

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) today choose to embrace change and promise myself that whatever happens I plan to choose kindness and compassion as a way of living. I live life believing that my attitude effects the outcome of my life, that my attitude is the most important aspect of my life, that by choosing to create a good story from the events of my life I am increasing the probability of creating more satisfying events in my future. I see the good in every heart, the little child just wanting to be loved and appreciated. Appreciation heals the hearts of all beings which is why being grateful is a habit I practice every day.
Today I am grateful for getting to do a energy jump start session yesterday with a friend/client and he said the session was as good as the best one he ever had (I am grateful that I was able to help the numbness in his toes be gone) for getting to go on my first kayak trip with Sarah Wilson and she said I was her best ever kayak student and that I got the paddling thing down fast (Gratitude Dance), and for finally choosing a husband that supports my dreams even going kayaking with a friend (he even made sure I took treats to share), or my singing or my healing practice or the writing of affirmations, I feel supported, heard and loved. Thank you for spending a few moments with me today. Thank you for sharing your emotions and wisdom with me. I Love You.  ♥ :~)

Being warm in winter is a blessing, being warm in our hearts creates happiness is our lives. Another wonderful painting by Robert Cerins Vibrational Artist! :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and A Kayak Trip

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) spend this day in quiet contemplation of being kindness in all of my interactions. I hold the door for strangers at the bank. I smile at everyone just because it feels good to smile. I patiently wait in line at the grocery store and at Thrifty’s I give my points to the person behind me in line and that always brings a smile to the person’s face which is way more fun than collecting the points. I share my good will in many creative ways throughout the day and I feel empowered. I have just one day to live so I choose to live it in happiness and kindness and I sleep well at night.
Today I am grateful for my new used computer, as we have a wonderful computer Guru Brendan Sean Nyhan ( ) who can get us wonderful used Mac Laptop computers that he goes through and repairs then resells them to people like me who need a great computer and want to have a smaller eco footprint and smaller price point, for getting to go on my first kayak trip today with my sister by choice Sarah Wilson she got a Groupon coupon for a kayak trip for two (I was told to wear no cotton and to not drink too much as peeing out of a kayak is not to easy to do I am guessing LOL ) and for Robert Cerins letting me wear his set of wool army pants that almost fits me, just a bit too long and a bit to big but not so big they fall off. I will be quite a site in the kayak in my full set of wool clothing. ( hahahaha Hopefully my paparazzi have the day off hahahaha ) Thank you for your precious time. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and feelings with me. I Love You. ♥ :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and DIY Toothpaste

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) am inspired to open my heart to the full range of human emotions embracing each emotion as valuable and important. As I was growing up I choose to go through life silently wanting to make my mom and dad happy was my most important job. My family was a quiet type of family that would not even say poo with a mouthful. I did not even have the words necessary to grieve my father when he died, as I was only fifteen. Now that I am an adult I realize that the most important person to make happy is me. I have found the best way to create my inner happiness is to express my emotions to my husband and close friends in constructive and creative ways. I share my emotions with the trusted people in my life who understand me and accept me just the way I am. I am nourished by their listening, their attention and their care.
Today I am grateful for Robert Cerins making some of the DIY toothpaste from the recipe that was going around facebook, it rocks, I love it (Robert made it with organic coconut oil, baking soda and organic peppermint oil from Genie In A Bottle (Genie Eugene) my mouth feels clean and soft when I am done brushing my teeth with it and nothing to throw away when we are done just refill the jar), for getting home from work yesterday to the smells of a yummy dinner all cooked and ready to eat (Robert is an amazing chef) and for the dehydrator running next to me heating the office while at the same time creating the yummy smell of fruit drying. I love the fall harvest time. Thank you for the priceless time you spent with me today. Thank you for sharing your wise words and ideas with me. I Love You. ♥ :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Appreciation

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) am excited I have chosen to listen to my heart. The more I learn about my heart and the energy it exudes the more I am interested in taking into consideration all that it shares with me. I embrace the silence required to allow my heart to speak. I believe my intuition comes from my heart and when I listen to my intuition my life flows like a river to the sea easily and freely. I have been blessed to gain trust in my heart by repeatedly doing it’s bidding and being rewarded with bliss each and every time. I embrace the wisdom of my heart as I would my grandmothers advice and I am lightened. My intuitive heart is connected to your intuitive heart and for that I am fortunate. Thank you for incarnating along with me. Thank you for sharing your wonderful stories. I learn from you. )
Today I am grateful for receiving in the mail $20.00 along with a small piece of art that creates in my mind the feeling of being by the ocean with a bonfire at sunset and on the back of the artwork it reads “Hi Stephanie, Many blessings to you. Thank you for being you. Thank you for your commitment to be love and for being in loving service. You are appreciated and loved. You rock, your radiate light and you make a big difference in my life and many others too. Much Love, xoxoxoxoxoxoxo I jumped up and did a super duper Gratitude Dance when I opened that letter because I felt heard and nourished, for the loving soul who took the time to openly and generously share their love back with me and for a man at the rally that shared with me he forwards on the posts I write to friends that are in need of being cheered up. I feel I am accomplishing my goal of cheering up that planet! Gratitude Dance! Thank you for your precious time. Thank you for your loving encouragement and support. I Love You. ♥ :~)
(This is an image of the art that was gifted to me. :~) The first picture I ever took with my laptop camera.)

Being near the ocean opens my being to the beauty of nature. This painting was gifted to me by someone who is inspired by my affirmations. Gratitude Dance! :~)
