Affirmation, Gratitude and Change

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) remind myself that I am enough. When I am sleeping I am doing enough, even if I take a nap in the day I am enough. As I make mistakes I am enough as I repair my mistakes I am enough. I allow myself to soak up my enoughness. As I realize that all dolphins, birds, ants, bears, horses, dogs, cats and all animals only need accomplish eating, sleeping, playing and reproducing to be enough, so just because I exist, I am enough, I am necessary, I am perfect in my imperfections. I am a beloved child of the Universe here to explore my heart, mind and world. I choose to see today as good, that all is happening exactly as it ought to for my best growth and I allow my heart to embrace you everyday.
Today I am grateful for my ability to change any aspect about me I choose to, I quit smoking cigarettes for my 25th birthday present to me, I have changed my diet many times, changed the amount of alcohol I drink as I now have the ability to only have one or two and then actually stop, I have changed my attitude to reflect all I have learned about happiness, self discipline, positive thinking and being of service, for deciding to be a learning machine as I love to read books that inspire my heart to trust in the process of Life, Love and Acceptance, and for trusting that the only part of my existence that I have any say over is me, myself and I so today I go forth on the last day of 2012 with a peaceful heart, open mind and loving life. Thank you for your important time. Thank you for sharing your open heart with me. I Love You. ♥ :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Innocence

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) today choose to take chances, follow my heart and listen to the still small voice inside of me. I am open to change. I have changed my diet and my life improved. I listen to my thoughts and honour all I think about and my courage improves. I speak kind words, phrases and sentences about me and I smile more. I make small changes in my behaviour and I get big results in my life. I honour you where you are and I am at peace, because since I believe that I am right where I am supposed to be for my souls highest growth than you too must be right where you are supposed to be for your souls highest growth and I also believe that all of mankind is right where we are supposed to be for our highest collective selves growth. I trust in the process of life and I am safe. Thank you for precious time. Thank you for sharing your passionate self with me. I Love You. ♥ :~)
Today I am grateful for talking to strangers I in the library, the street, the Community Farm Store, the musical festival and anywhere else people may be even on Facebook, as yesterday we were invited to the most decadent Christmas celebration by a man we met a few years ago in the library with his two sons (it was held yesterday as opposed to Christmas because of all the snow) for getting to start eating at 3:00 in the afternoon and continue eating all the way until about 9:00 pm some of the most delicious, homemade, organic, yummy, filling and fun food ever, the meal started with the appetizers of cheese, homemade crackers, homemade spreads and homemade mayonnaise, for getting to meet another wonderful couple that Robert Cerins enjoyed conversing with the gentleman most of the night and might be making a new friend, and for getting to watch two patient boys opening their presents a day late and the riotous celebration of paper shredding, squealing and pure innocent joy bounding around the room. It was an evening to remember. Thank you for your interest. Thank you for sharing your heart with me. I Love You.

Affirmation, Gratitude and Holidays

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) love the holidays. As getting together with friends, family and on occasion strangers is what the Holidays are all about to me. I love to cook, have conversations about all kinds of subjects from the weather, or talk about death, or babies, or our love lives or how to create joy in our lives, or what is the “right” way (hahahahaha) to make our favourite recipe. To me the holidays are about sharing what we have as a way to practice how I want to live every day of my life, like it is always a time to be generous, to be joyous and to share the love in my heart willingly with everyone. I am blessed to have loved ones, a warm dry bed, a dinner to go to today and another tomorrow.
Today I am grateful for having the perfect man for me in my life Robert Cerins, as I manifested a man that loves to have fun, loves to bring joy to the hearts of others, is loved by children, lover of eating cookies, who helped me bottle the hard cider, was a true helper at my Mom’s on this trip, he made a delicious spaghetti sauce one night while I was making peanut butter cookies, willingly hung out with my step father Don on errands and out to see Don’s plane, even watched a movie or two, not of his taste and for being right that the world was not going to end, Woo Hoo, that there is enough time for me to share the love I have with everyone I meet. Thank you for joining me today. Thank you for sharing your perfect self with me. I Love You. ♥ :~)

I love each heart that beats to the best of my ability and I nurture compassion for all. My goal is to lighten the load of each heart and brighten my smile so that I shine, shine, shine the love of the Universe on the each second of my day. I share my energy willingly and generously on each task at hand and I enjoy each moment whether I am cooking, cleaning, having a conversation with a friend or taking a walk in nature. I practice loving what I do every moment of the day with the knowledge that each moment is sacred, important and fleeting. I breathe in love and exhale calmness. I am the change, I am a powerful spiritual being and I am love.


Today I am grateful for my ability to hear our voices, body language, emotional state, joy, fear, faith, passion, satisfaction and delight, for patiently watching our facial expressions, listening to the tones in every voice and witnessing the vibration each heart emits every moment of every day connects me to the heart beat of life and for my enthusiastic commitment to believing that by maintaining a positive attitude and being kind all good and comes to me in the perfect time.

Today I am grateful for receiving the 8th Annual Spirit Award 2012 from the Cowichan Bio-Diesel Coop (I feel honoured and appreciated by our wonderful Bio-Diesel Coop, we buy the fuel here for our TDI Jetta Station wagon and it feels good to use a waste product, used french fry oil, to fuel our car) for being committed to doing things different once I realize that there is a more sustainable way, I support that way of life, that is why I have been eating organic since 1994 and for believing that through my thoughts, feelings and actions I influence my world, I vote with my dollars for a sustainable environment by purchasing locally grown organic food, thinking before I buy anything and for trusting that just as I am right where I am supposed to be for my highest purpose then I believe all of mankind is exactly where we are supposed to be for our collective highest purpose.

Affirmation, Gratitude and Being Proactive

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) am in awe of how amazing life is. I get to be incarnated in a time of great knowledge. A time where most of the people of our planet can read and hopefully improve their lives by improving their state of mind. To believe that I am a powerful spiritual being that is capable of effecting the environment I live in by staying focused on that which I want to create. I bring an attitude of love to all I do today and feel strong. My purpose is to love, to be love, to exude love and to accept the love you give me with an open heart, in a trusting fashion that gives peace to my soul. I delight in witnessing the love that exists on our planet everyday and I do my best to share love willingly and easily.

Today I am grateful for my ability to change my mind, to be able to learn, grow, and practice new ways of being kind and accepting, new ways of going about my life in a proactive way that bring peace to my soul daily, for getting to experiment with the spiritual ideas that I read about in books like, giving is the same as receiving, patience is free, thinking before I act or speak or remembering to breathe the next time things do not go quite as I planned and for spending time each day being kind to me, when I look in the mirror in the morning I say I Love You to me, I repeat that I am worthy and my purpose is to be the best example of cheeriness I can muster each day. Thank you spending a bit of your day with me. Thank you for sharing what inspires you to love. I Love You. ♥ :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Cleaning

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) want to be an example of kindness today. I want everyone who sees me to feel my love of all humanity. I am one with all beings. I am one with George Bush as well as the Dalai Lama. I am one with the ants and the elephants. I am one with the moon and the stars. I breathe in fear and breathe out faith. I am the one who decides if it is a good day, so I create good in all my days to share and light a smile on my face daily. I believe in the good in each heart and that everyone is going to be kind sometimes I just must be the faithful watcher and then I see the beauty in all hearts. Thank you for precious time. Thank you for sharing your beautiful hearts with me. I Love You.

Today I am grateful for the snow that fell last night as everything is so quiet, white and sparkly right after it snows, for getting home to our life of art, friends, healthy eating and my own bed and for getting to be of service to my family and friends that live in Utah and Parkland WA (as for Christmas I gave my nieces & nephew by choice Ally Collison, Michelle Collison and Tony Collison clean bathrooms for their Christmas presents). Thank you for bring joy to my heart. Thank you for sharing your open mind and heart with me. I Love You. ♥ :~)
