Affirmation, Gratitude and Learning

Here is something new I am doing a vlog five days a week! I am grateful to get to post this video after two days of technical errors. What do you think. Love you lots. ❤
Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) get a chance today to use my time wisely. There are things I am choosing to do right now, that I have been wanting to do my whole life, like play the piano. I am now practicing on my Digital Piano in the morning in the hopes that by this time next year I may be able to play for you. When I take action by exercising, playing the piano or reading a book that inspires me to be more loving, my entire being feels excited, tingly and alive. When I direct myself to do what I really, really, want to do, I focus all my energy at the new task at hand, take a deep breath, leave Netflix OFF, embrace my endeavor with an open mind and heart, then be willing to make all the mistakes it takes, until I am the master of the new skill I am learning. Thank you for joining me for a dose of joy today. Thank you for learning something new today. I Love YOU. :~)

Today I am grateful for having the best dentist on earth Dr. Dustin George as I had broken my temporary crown on Saturday afternoon eating home baked chicken wings at Robert Cerins‘ parents home, then when I got home there was an e-mail from Dustin George asking how my tooth was and I had to tell him I had wreaked his work and he made an appointment to meet me on Sunday Morning at 11:00am to replace my broken temporary crown with a new temporary crown until my gold crown is finished, for getting to make Latvian Rye bread for Robert’s parents as his mom’s shoulder hurts too much for her to make the bread anymore, making the bread made Robert’s dad Bob joyous as he has been eating that bread for 91 and a half years and for getting to be a part of the Nanaimo Professional Craft Fair…/… this weekend starting on Friday at noon on Nov. 4th, so I get to dress up this weekend as a holiday elf. Thank you for your precious time. Thank you for sharing what you are grateful for today. I Love YOU.  :~)

Getting a gold crown is a process where the dentist makes a temporary plastic type cover for the tooth until the Lab Tech creates the gold crown.



Affirmation, Gratitude and Reading

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) love that I have the ability to learn every day because I can read. It is such a gift that I can read the words of thousands of other people who have experiences that I am able to glean some wisdom from than create paradigm shifts in my heart that are long lasting and permanent. In each moment of my life there is an opportunity for me to choose the emotions that bring me the most peace of mind. I am awake. I am aware. I am consciousness incarnated to taste, touch, smell, see, hear and experience everything. It is free to pay attention so I always pay attention to the best of my ability which increases my sense of security. Thank you for enjoying my post today. Thank you for learning something new. I Love YOU.   :~)

I love learning, paying attention and listening with my whole being. :~)

Today I am grateful for getting the recycling all cleaned up today and taken to the recycling centre, it felt so good to get that chore off my, to do list, for feeling way better today than yesterday, after I got my tooth ground off by Dr. Dustin George to get a new gold crown that will protect my tooth hopefully for the next fifty years and for the yummy pots on the stove filled with chicken stock in one pot and chaga & reshi tea in the other pot, nourishing my body with homemade food is my favourite way to sustain my physical body. How do you nourish your body? Thank you for the moments you spent here today. Thank you for nourishing your body temple with whole foods. I Love YOU.   :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Fenugreek

Here is the Vlog #39 Affirmation, Gratitude and Fenugreek that goes with this blog.

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) do my best today in all that I do. When I do my best, the act of knowing I put my heart in my work helps create in my entire body a feeling of contentment. It has become a habit of mine to go the extra mile in all of my activities. When I employ the spiritual principle, being of useful service, I am also employing the habit of going the extra mile which enables me to connect to the spiritual as well as the material world. It is possible for me to get into the flow of abundance when I think only of how I can give or contribute to my world. The more I focus on what I can offer, the more I am living as nature does, always doing her best to be a stunning rose, a majestic mountain, a rolling wave or a new born babe. When I am present in my actions, all my actions bring me presents. Thank you for the moments you were with me here today. Thank you for doing your best today. I Love YOU.  :~)

Today I am grateful for getting to wash windows for 6 hours today, as I got an unexpected call from a friend Darra-Lee Poole who had a real estate client that needed a window washer and that is one of my gifts being a great window washer, so I washed the inside of the windows while it rained and when it cleared off in the afternoon it was time to go do the outside of the windows, for being strong, flexible and brave enough to wash one story windows on the outside of the house on an extension ladder, gratitude dance and for the herb Fenugreek because it is helpful for soothing my female organs, evens out blood sugar, benefits my cardiovascular system, is good for my kidneys and tastes like maple syrup without the sucrose, which is a tasty treat. Thank you for stopping by to see me today. Thank you for finding one aspect of your life to be grateful for today. I Love YOU. :~)

I love that Fenugreek tastes like maple syrup and is really good for me! :~)


Affirmation, Gratitude and JakePetunia

Here is yesterdays Vlog #38 Affirmation Gratitude and Jake Petunia dedicated to my four legged friend.

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) love the feeling that I am connected at the heart with every person on this planet. When each heart starts pumping it is ignited by a force that is still unexplainable and the exact same energy fires every heart whatever the skin, fur or shell is on the outside of the body. Connecting to the life force that starts my heart is what my hope is when I am meditating or offering the reflexology/reiki sessions it is my pleasure to share. It is when doing the distance reiki sessions that it is my joy to witness the spiritual connection shared by us all. How by going into a deep state of meditation, visualizing the person in front of me that I am able, to imagine the client receiving a session, as if the person is right in front of me and the person receives the same relief as if they were actually in front of me. How without the life spark my earthly body would just be a limp noodle. Tonight I have renewed gratitude for the spark that animates my being. Thank you for having a spark inside you tonight. Thank you for caring for and fanning your inner fire.  :~)

When my heart and head agree there is peace in my entire being. :~)

Today I am grateful for getting to go and see my friend Jake Petunia after he transformed back to pure energy and before he was buried, I bravely petted his cold furry body but he did not respond, I poked him like I was a little child hoping he would wake up but he stayed still, for the first time ever, not even his stump of a tail wagged, for the lessons our furry friends teach us about greeting our friends with enthusiasm, enjoying life, savouring the same food every day and even calmly embracing death with a courageous heart and for getting to witness the way my friend Sarah Wilson and her family are grieving their four legged guardian angel, we picked flowers from Jake’s yard for his ceremony and he will be buried with other doggy and kitty friends, at the home of a cherished soul sister of Sarah’s. Thank you for joining me in rejoicing life today. Thank you for grieving your loved ones transformations with a courageous heart. I Love YOU.  :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Pirags

To create in your heart a smile here is the vlog that goes with yesterday’s affirmation and what I am grateful for, may you feel lighter after watching my vlog.

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) am willing to give up being guilty. It feels as if there is a part of me that has in the past needed to be guilty, starting this day forward, when ever I catch myself being guilty I will feel through is this just a habitual feeling from my inner child or is this situation really call for me to be guilty? From this day forward I give myself permission to take care of me from a place of innocence, because it is up to me and me alone to take care of my heart first, then I draw to me people who are capable of caring for themselves and others. I am a Spiritual Being having a Mortal Experience so it is vital that I care for my body temple on a daily basis. I matter. I practice self compassion so that I am a capable of being understanding when my ears hear the stories of the people in my life. I am willing to accept that deep in my core I am innocent. Thank you for your precious time. Thank you for believing in yourself. I Love YOU. :~)
I love this image from The Grief Toolbox

Praying for my innocence to be restored has been helpful on the journey to healing my heart of grief. :~)

Today I am grateful for getting to make Pirags, Cinnamon Buns, and Caraway Buns yesterday with the tutelage of Robert Cerins’ parents Bob and Vija, as a life long friend of Robert’s named James wanted to learn how to make the pirags, so I got Robert’s parents to agree to advise us and I made the pirags with the help of James, Bob, Vija, Jacque, and even Robert Cerins rolled out a bit of dough, it was a terrific day, for getting to eat the food that I helped to create yesterday, the crispy bacony flavour of the Pirags, the yummy cinnamon buns (even though the wheat usually causes me to have eczema, the tastes, texture and tummy satisfaction was worth what ever eczema may appear) and for getting more than 100 images ready to go on to Robert Cerins web site so that for the 3rd Annniversary of Robert Cerins Original Earrings we will be selling a great selection of Robert’s hand painted earrings online which is a dream come true. Thank you for being a part of my day today. Thank you for using your creative talent wisely. I Love YOU.  :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Laughter

Here is my Vlog that goes with today’s affirmation and gratitude my you laugh, feel joy or just think of what you are grateful for while you witness my gratitude.

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) have a chance today to be patient in all situations. When I am standing in line at the grocery store I have a choice to enjoy being in line, to pass the time while in the line, by speaking to the people behind me who are also waiting in the line. Each moment of my life is an opportunity to live lightly, to breathe easily and to connect to the heart of the person nearest to me. At the times I am patient in the moment the moment is a breeze. My time lingering in the line is an opportunity to check in with my heart to see how my heart feels the day is going. Each second of my life is another chance to witness how my life will improve by me being willing to be patient. Then when people recognize that I was patient, I share my little truth that patience is free and I usually cause in the person a small laugh. Thank you for the moments you were here with me today. Thank you for creating some laughter in your life today. I Love You. :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Thinking

Here is yesterdays Vlog #35 Affirmation, Gratitude and Thinking may you feel laughter in your tummy and a smile on your face from watching my vlog. Blessings,

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) spend some time today thinking about, what I think about. My thoughts create the feelings in my body, my feelings create chemicals in my body that can heal me or harm me. It is important for me be conscious of my emotions so that my emotions are under the wise direction of my intuitive heart. When I approach my life as if I am an enlightened spiritual being, it is easier for me to see the similarities in each person, who elicits an emotional response from my heart. At the times when I focus on the similarities in myself and others, my heart stays connected in the situation which increases the chances of a win/win outcome, which is my dream. It is within my power to increase the peace on our planet by being peaceful. Thank you for helping me create a wave of peacefulness today. Thank you for listening to your wise emotions. I Love You.  :~)

When I listen to my emotions I feel connected to my heart, which causes me to feel secure.

Today I am grateful for getting to share my passion for affirmations and self empowerment for a second time in one week to a group of about 10 people who have all immigrated to Canada just like me, at the Cowichan Intercultural Society, it fulfills my goal of cheering up the planet when I get to share the power of affirmations, for us getting in 3,000 new niobium ear wires and 1,000 new niobium jump rings so that Robert and I will be ready for the 5 Christmas Shows we are doing and to get the stores that sell our Original Earrings filled up for all the Holiday shoppers and for getting to be have a booth at the Duncan Farmers Market tomorrow on a Saturday that is supposed to be cloudy and dry, as the last three Saturdays have been really wet. Thank you for being here on earth with me. Thank you for finding something in your life to be grateful for. I Love YOU.  :~)
