Affirmation, Gratitude and Self Care

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) exercise my emotional muscles as if I was entering the emotional Olympics. My emotional muscles are happiness, patience, compassion, calmness, forgiveness, kindness, acceptance, and my super power unconditional love. I exercise my unconditional love muscles today when I someone’s driving scares me and I send them loving vibrations of calmness. I exercise forgiveness of self when I am late on occasion that I am always exactly where I am supposed to be. I visualize creating smiles on the faces of the readers of my posts and joy in their hearts. I exercise kindness to the planet and my lungs when I burn 100% recycled french fry oil in my TDI Jetta. Today I choose to think before I act or speak, as that is one of my favourite mantras I created for myself to heal and gain self mastery. I imagine radiant white light filling every cell of my body, comforting my soul.

Today I am grateful for getting my electricity bill as I love being able to go to the electric stove in the morning, heat up some water (no fire building required, it’s a miracle) and make coffee all in less than 10 minutes, for getting nine new friends, a new Happiness Is Healthy follower and a bunch of inspiring comments I received for a personalized birthday affirmation written by me to celebrate Dave Conrardy “The Raw Food Trucker” a man who took charge of his health and released more than 100 pounds, and for being able to say no I can’t do something as in my past I remember an AA sponsor telling me no has two letters and yes has three so no ought to be easier to say, I will always remember the look on her face, when she asked me a question she wanted a yes answer to and I said no, she did not look happy that I had learned her lesson. Thank you for your valuable time with me today. Thank you for bravely riding the emotional roller coaster of life today. I Love You. ♥ :~)

Sharing abundance with friends gives my heart reason to live. :~)



Affirmation, Gratitude and Animal Emotions

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, delight in understanding that every warm blooded animal that I have ever met has emotions and that our emotions bond us to our common physical existence. I have seen dogs be guilty of making a mess or eating food off the table. I have been hugged by a horse one night in the field at my mom’s home as I raged at my situation one evening. I have also recently witnessed a horse acting in such a way that it seemed to be grieving, if it were a human, then I found out it’s owner had died earlier that day. I have caressed cuddly cats and been scratched by fearful ones. I have witnessed pigs I grew up with enjoying beer like a teenager as my dad poured the dregs of the keg into their trough. I realize that every animal including me is connected to every other animal with a heart that emits electromagnetic energy as we are all one.

Today I am grateful for two successful events on Thursday we had our second Affirm My Heart Adventure and it was fun we met a new friend, shared a personalized affirmation and received a generous donation of cash for the personalized affirmation, (Gratitude Dance), for creating the first Circle For Being Healing at Inspire Shawnigan, that was inspired by Lewis Mehl-Medrona’s fabulous book The Spirit Of Healing where he states that all communities need a space to be healing for each other, so that is what we are creating at Inspire Shawnigan the last Thursday of the month at 7:00pm and for the feeling that I am on my life’s path when I put myself in the shoes of the other person and write the personalized affirmations to people hoping to connect their powerful minds to their powerful emotional selves. Thank you for being here with me today. Thank you for allowing me to put myself in your shoes for a little while. I Love You. ♥ :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Picking Up Trash

Today’s Affirmtion; I, Stephanie, love being of service to my planet, my fellow humans and to myself. To be of service to my planet I pick up trash, burn 100% Bio-Diesel created from used french fry oil in our TDI Jetta wagon, buy as much local produce as I can and eat organic food to lessen the toxin load on the land, sea and air. To be of service to my fellow humans I give them the room they need to make mistakes, have successes and embrace the perfectly imperfect humans that we all are. I also practice being patient, kind and caring in every human relationship I have so that the people who know me feel safe in my presence knowing that I have their best interest at heart. To be of service to me I nurture every uplifting emotion I have, listen to my heart, act on it’s urgings and share my experience freely knowing that we are all teachers and students simultaneously. I am happiness, love and light incarnated to share myself fully and freely.

 Today I am grateful for being present to my thoughts as they enter my consciousness so that I may evaluate each thought and decide if it is worth thinking when a thought brings a smile to my face, joy to my heart or a sense of service I choose to keep thinking it, for my ability to discern between thoughts that bring me peace, as well as listening to the restless thoughts that are letting me know that somehow my needs are not being met and taking right action to comfort my heart so that my restless thoughts feel heard, calming right down becoming peaceful and for exercising my emotional muscles with each human interaction I encounter today is peaceful, cooperative and compassionate. Thank you for witnessing my journey. Thank you for sharing your emotions with me. I Love You. ♥ :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Coconut Bliss

Today’s Affirmation; I Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) spend this day focused on how to inspire the people of my world to live from their empowered joyful selves. The best way for me to accomplish this is to live from my own joyful heart. I choose to believe that I am capable of effecting my world with my attitude and outlook on life. My world has up and downs, ins and outs and sometimes even sideways however if I look at it as if it is a roller coaster I enjoy the scary times as much as the exciting times. My perception of my world effects my physical world so today I perceive a helpful, loving and supportive world that provides for all my needs 110% and I feel safe. I see everyone I meet as my teacher, friend and relation which increases my sense of safety. I trust everyone to be human and get their needs met in the healthiest way they know how. And I do my best to tread lightly in life for everyone is learning to love.
Today I am grateful for getting to have Coconut Bliss dark chocolate in my coffee this morning as coconut ice cream is one of my favourite treats, for getting to go to the Duncan library today at 3:00pm to share my passion of living life joyfully, I have my handouts ready for the children and parents who come to be more aware of our heart connections and for getting to have happiness enhancing events tomorrow at Inspire Shawnigan one at 3:00pm to 4:30pm and a Circle To Be Healing For One Another at 7:00pm so you can come and receive healing or sharing healing for free with our community. Thank you for joining me here today. Thank you for sharing your stories with me. I Love You. :~) ♥

Affirmation, Gratitude and Coffee Joy

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) choose to act and my fears diminish. I realize that when I make any small step in the direction of my dream I feel empowered. With each word I write I feel my goal of cheering up the planet coming closer to fruition and I feel inspired to love. To have this opportunity to effect the physical world with my words, thoughts, feelings and actions is a dream come true. I value each thought for the powerful seed of manifestation that it is and I plant my thoughts carefully in the soil of my future, focusing on kindness, compassion and service. I do my best to be a generator of love consciously emitting calmness, care and warmheartedness. Which creates in me a feeling of safety, that I am more the the sum of my physical parts. I embrace the wisdom of plants, animals and children and I feel enlightened. I am blessed to have you in my life.
P.S. Here is the joy I found at the bottom of my coffee this morning. 🙂 ♥ :~)

Today I am grateful for the wonderful connections we made during the jam and welcome reception for the Idle No More Walkers for the Protection of Shawnigan Lake the sense of community, empowerment and heartfelt connections was comforting as well as enriching, for the joy that wells in my heart when my friends make healthy life affirming choices that inspire me to think before I act or speak and for the heart felt appreciation I received from one of my Happiness Is Healthy participants, which I allowed to seep into each cell of my body so that I could transmit her appreciation back out to all my clients as she energized my heart, mind and spirit. Thank you for allowing my words a spot in your day. Thank you for sharing your delightful selves with me. I Love You. ♥ :~)


Affirmation, Gratitude and Emotions

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) get calmer the more my outside world gets crazier. I become a generator of calmness that is in the centre of the storm. I am capable of practicing calmness in all situations that arise in my life. My reality is influenced by my emotional state so today I invest my emotions in the grounded and constructive states of love, compassion and kindness. What ever is going on in my world I take the kind and patient road. All situations are made better with patience, acceptance and calmness. I choose to take the highest spiritual road I can visualize every moment of the day, just to see if I get the results of inner peace that the spiritual books say I shall receive for being composed, caring and compassionate. So far in my human opinion the gifts I have gained by accepting the people in my life for who they think they are instead of who I think they could be, brings to me a sense of contentment and tranquility. I see the light in all hearts as precious and the same as the light in my heart.
 Today I am grateful for knowing that my health and diet are intimately related as I have now been off gluten, dairy and eggs for one month and I have only a tiny rash because I ate one soft boiled egg a few days ago so off eggs for good too (the rash is almost gone as it was just one egg), for realizing that sugar and alcohol give my body the same reaction during the night, which is night sweats as last night I totally enjoyed the Moziro’s Chocolates and woke up sweating and for the health, strength and vitality I feel infusing into my body when I have a fresh nettle smoothie for breakfast. I am what I eat, so I choose to be whole, organic and fresh. Thank you for joining me here today. Thank you for being kind today. I Love You. ♥

Affirmation, Gratitude and Service

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) take pride in all I do today. I realize that when my actions are taken with a sense of dignity I enjoy even the most laborious jobs. As I invest my heart in all of my daily tasks I come to realize my jobs are done better and in less time which is a plus. To imagine the people benefiting from my toil brings a smile to my face and gives me a sense of purpose. To enjoy taking out the trash, washing the dishes to give my family a clean surface to eat from or cleaning the washroom and folding the toilet paper into a point hoping who ever uses the washroom feels as if they are on a lovely vacation. I imbue all of my actions with love so I feel connected to source energy. To dance in joy with the broom across the floor keeps me healthy and joyous while cleaning the homes of my clients. I have only one chance to enjoy each moment of my life so I choose to act in love, joy and delight so that my days are sweet.

Today I am grateful for spending time evaluating who I am spending my time with as the people I surround myself with effect all parts of my life and my dreams, for choosing people with the capacity to be responsible for their thoughts, feelings and actions so that I may have healthy conversations that bring awareness and lightness to our interactions and for knowing that any time I spend with people who are unaware of their emotional out bursts that I comfort myself that they are spirits in pain and that I choose to rise to my highest spiritual self and do my best to love them unconditionally as I would someone loving me unconditionally. Thank you for being here today. Thank you for sharing your smart brains with me. I Love You. ♥ :~)
