Affirmation, Gratitude and Laughter

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) choose to laugh at myself today. When I make a mistake today instead of berating myself in the quiet of my mind, I realize that I am learning something new and that is why I made a mistake, so I offer myself some forgiveness, praise myself for attempting a new venture and patiently clean up the mess I made, then do my best to start the task again once I have taken a deep breathe or two. I remind myself that mistakes are good because they give me job security as I then have a dilemma to solve which makes me smarter and more skilled. The more I focus on the small successes and forget easily the blunders I create, the happier I am. Since being happy is my goal then I have once again succeeded in a small way. Plus every time I am happy I increase my oxytocin that increases my entire well being. Thank you for laughing at yourself today. Thank you for increasing your oxytocin. I Love You.

Today I am grateful for getting to share a Reflexology/Reiki session this morning, the session starts with a foot bath for your feet, next I tenderly dry your feet, then you get on the massage table and I rub your feet, hands and head, finishing off the session with a bit of Reiki, for the clients I have that trust me to offer their bodies, minds and spirits a bit of comfort and relief from Source Energy and for the intuition that comes to me while I in a deep state of meditation during the healing sessions I offer, I feel that I receive something valuable each time I give a healing treatment. Thank you for caring for you today. Thank you for generously sharing your energy today. I Love You.  :~)

I have learned that I must fill my heart with gladness before I am able to share the gladness in my heart with anyone.

Affirmation, Gratitude and Deep Listening

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) have an opportunity today to practice the spiritual art of deep listening. This day when I am in conversations I make it a priority to watch the body language of the person speaking, as body language makes up for about 93% of what is being communicated, I watch the facial muscles, the body movements, is the person comfortable or uncomfortable. I listen for the tone of voice the person speaks in to know if they are feeling fear or faith. I want the people speaking to me to feel heard, appreciated and cared for, so I pay attention with my body movements, eye contact and responses. It is up to me to make sure the people I share my life with feel my connection, caring and compassion through my paying attention to their needs. Thank you for paying attention to your needs and the needs of your loved ones. Thank you for being here with me today. I Love You.

Thank you for being helpful to yourself and your loved ones. Thank you for asking to get your needs met compassionately. I Love You.  :~)

I allow my heart to swell so that I am able to see the emotional issues of the people in my life and be empathic to their needs. I realize that the best way for me to be helpful to myself and others is to be open, to listen and to be accepting of where we all are in every moment emotionally, so that I am able to be compassionate in the moment.
