Affirmation, Gratitude and Washer Fix

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert my name here to increase my ability to be calm) have a super power to help enable me to be calm which is conscious breathing. Any time my stomach begins to clench or my heart begins to wrench I spend a few moments deep breathing. As I feel the air fill my lungs time and time again I feel my stomach relax and my heart beginning unwind. Wow it really works! When I am able to breathe through my tension I feel empowered. I am capable of self-soothing. The more I practice this time tested method the more liberated I feel. In my heart a feeling of safety grows as I witness myself relaxing at will. Thank you for breathing deeply a few times today. Thank you for believing in your ability to calm yourself. I Love YOU. :~)

Today I am grateful that yesterday Robert Cerins and I repaired our washing machine together as it was leaking water, so we spoke of the issue to Bob Tustian (our talented brother-in-law) and he said there was a lint trap that needed cleaning, so we went to Youtube and found this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWq0xdh8ZIA&t=1s, which helped us fix our washer, we ran a load and it was dry on the floor, Woo Hoo, for making $ 1.81 cents repairing the washer as we found money in the lint trap (which is way better than paying to have it repaired) and for working together calmly, cooperatively and caringly with my amazing husband. Thank you for calmly working together with your family today. Thank you for bravely cooperating with your loved ones today. I Love YOU. :~)

Fixing the washer with my husband was awesome. :~)

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.

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 Our Senses

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert my name here to appreciate my physical body) spend some time today thinking kind thoughts about my body. My physical being loves being appreciated. My tongue allows me to taste all the yummy flavours in the world like beef jerky, watermelon, bison salami and butter.

My body has the ability to offer a kind touch and to also receive a kind touch which fills my body with comfort. My eyes gift me with the experience of the colours of the rainbow as well as my eyes connect me to every person I meet. My heart offers me a way to enjoy all the earthly and spiritual delights.

Today I am grateful for becoming a part of the Collective Space in downtown Duncan yesterday, where I shall be holding space every Tuesday evening in October for people whose lives have been affected by domestic abuse, for doing my exercises this morning so that my core gets stronger and my back stays flexible and for trusting in what I know I need to do to grow my business, as I was getting feedback that maybe it would be better to hold the gatherings in October in my home, but after much thought I realized that it would be the best path for me, to find a space outside my home to hold the Happiness Enhancing classes, so the Collective Space is the place. Thank you for following your gut or listening to your heart. Thank you for standing up for your dreams. I Love YOU. :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Selling Art

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert my name here to enjoy being of useful service) have an opportunity today to enjoy being able to be helpful. Each moment of the day while I am engaged in actions like cooking or cleaning I remember I am caring for grand spiritual beings that incarnated to love. Whether I am cleaning up and cooking for just myself or for my family when I take a moment to actually enjoy washing the dishes, feeling the warm water flow across my skin, feel my muscles flex as I scrub a dirty pan, my powerful mind is capable of helping me make fun out of the most repetitive of tasks. I encourage myself to enjoy my daily duties, by singing while I work, listening to my favourite music while I clean and being grateful that I actually have a warm dry home to clean. I am the keeper of my thoughts, so I think constructive thoughts while I clean and I feel empowered. Thank you for your time. Thank you for speaking kindly to yourself. I Love YOU. :~)
