Affirmation, Gratitude and Halloween

Today’s Affirmation; I, have a chance today to approve of me. I spend this day encouraging myself by speaking words that create in my heart a feeling of courage. I look into my favourite mirror so that I can see deep into my eyes and say “I Love Me. I am valuable. I am beautiful. I am kind. I am funny. I am an asset to my community. I am a good friend. I am a good listener. I am helpful. I am necessary just like the sunshine. I am the most important person I need to impress. After encouraging myself by looking in the mirror my heart feels full. I have the power to speak kindly to me today. Thank you for being kind to you today. Thank you for being here with me today. I Love YOU. ❤ :~)

Approving of myself is the best gift I can give myself.

Today I am grateful for finding all the paint I need to finish up fixing up the home we are living in right in the shed in the backyard, it is a nice light blue colour too, so no money out of my pocket and using up old paint from 2012 that is being used up instead of being thrown out, for finding this wonderful Halloween Costume in the home I am cleaning, what a great gift from my Halloween Angels and for the beautiful sunny days we are having right now which is helpful as I am washing the outside windows of the home we are staying in today, so they will sparkle.
What are you grateful for today? Thank you for enjoying the small gifts the Universe gives you today. Thank you for spending a bit of your precious time with me. I Love YOU. ❤ :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude & Responding

Today’s Affirmation; I, give myself a chance today to rethink how I respond to the events of my life. My responses to the things that happen every day are what make my life worth living. So today I respond with forethought. I taste my words before I speak them to make sure they are sweet. I want my words to bring comfort to all who hear them. I exercise my emotional muscles so that I am patient in all trying situations. I get to choose how I respond, which is a gift I give myself and everyone in my life. The better I get at responding to the events of the day, instead of reacting to the events of my day, the more confidence I feel filling every cell of my body. I respond with kindness and all is well. Thank you for responding to the events of your life with a kind heart. Thank you for sharing a bit of your day with me. I Love YOU. ❤ :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Good Habits

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert my name here to be open to changing any habit that does not serve me) have the strength to evaluate my habits to see what habits of mine create in me a feeling of wellness. When I discover habits I have that increase my well being I practice repeating those habits so that I am able to enjoy my life. If I happen to find a habit that no longer brings me joy I spend time investigating how to create a new habit that will replace the old habit. Every decision I make is a chance to choose to act in a way that brings joy to my heart. I choose to make healthy habits a part of my life. I feel better when I make healthy choices. Thank you for courageously choosing healthy habits. Thank you for being here on earth with me today. I Love YOU. :~)

Today I am grateful for the stopping of eating cheese which is helping clear my lungs after all the fire smoke we breathed this summer, my lungs need some extra care, for the self discipline I have cultivated in myself so that I am capable of changing any behavior that is not serving me any more, as when I quit sucking my thumb at the age of 13 years old and for trusting that I have the ability to use my energy to follow my dream of becoming an author while at the same time supporting my loved ones. Thank you for listening to your wise heart. Thank you for bravely stepping out of your comfort zone and into the growth zone. I Love YOU. :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Sunrise

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert my name here to value my wise heart and my emotions) was gifted with a heart that sustains my body and connects me to my emotions. My emotions are my powerhouse. My emotions are my friends that communicate important information to me each time I pay attention to the sensations my emotions create in every cell of my being. When my emotions are communicating a feeling of safety and security to me, I take notice of what is happening around me. It is then that I notice I am being listened to or that someone or something is creating in my heart a feeling of being cared for. It is up to me to take responsibility for my happiness. I feel empowered when I am present to the emotions I am exuding each moment of the day. Thank you for listening to your wise emotions. Thank you for sharing a moment of your day with me. I Love YOU. :~)

Today I am grateful for the rain we got on Saturday during the Duncan Farmers Market, there were not as many shoppers at the market but the forest, rivers and animals sure needed the drink of water the rain provided, for the stunning sunrise I am getting to witness right now in Ladysmith, BC, the sunrise is a gift I receive each morning and for taking the steps necessary to get my book to reach an audience worth writing it for, calling bookstores and domestic violence programs to see how I can best be of service.

Affirmation, Gratitude and A Home

Today’s Affirmation; I,_________, (insert my name here to be self confident) have a chance today to increase my self confidence by being my own best friend. When I set a goal to keep my kitchen clean, then I follow through by doing the dishes, each day before I go to bed, then I wake up to a clean kitchen, feeling successful. When I nourish my body with whole foods, at least two or three times a day my body responds with vibrant health and energy. Each time I fuel my being with fresh vegetables (locally grown if possible) my every cell feels renewed. When I make small strides daily to care for my body, mind and spirit, my body, mind and spirit, feel enlivened. I care for my body and my body enables me to enjoy my life. I am a courageous child of the Universe and the Universe is elated when I care for my earthly spacesuit. 

Blessings,

Affirmation, Gratitude and My New Book

Today’s Affirmation is from my new book. Healing My Heart After Domestic Abuse

Affirmation Fifteen

I meditate to connect to the energy source that started my heart beating when I was in the womb. In my mind’s eye there is a clear image of the tiny cells of my body filling with the violet light of compassion and patience.
It is my pleasure to get to expand my conscious mind with the time tested method of quietly sitting alone, breathing deeply focusing on the inner light of love that is my core. My intuition is ignited by the Universe’s violet light, causing in my heart a tingly feeling of safety.
I can increase the amount of love in my life by being loving to me. I approve of me. I enjoy me. I think about the parts of me that I am proud of. I feel the emotions of worthiness wash over me like a spring wind, triggering me to feel bold. It is within my realm of influence, to remind myself of my infinite value over and over again until I feel as confidant as a Guru.
I am a courageous child of the Universe and the Universe exists to fill me with love.
Thank you for being here with me today. Thank you for inspiring me with your presence. I Love YOU! :~)
