Affirmation, Gratitude and Change

Vlog # 79 is about learning to enjoy change so that we can be our best selves and what there was to be grateful for in my life to encourage you to be grateful for your life.  I Love YOU.

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert your name here if you choose to change) am open to letting go of any parts of me that are holding me back from being successful. Embracing the faith that encourages me to believe in my dreams, enables me to bravely release my personal blocks to success. The more I visualize my dreams in vivid colour, experiencing what my life would feel like when I achieve my goals, what my life would smell like, when I achieve my goals, the more details about how my ideal life would be, the better, because when I visualize my future life, my Reticular Activating System is on the look out to help me create the dreams and goals that I hold closest to my heart and in my mind. My energy stays lively when I witness my Reticular Activating System enabling me to effect the changes in my mind and heart necessary for me to be disciplined. It is up to me to keep focused on what I do want to create with constructive emotions and a thankful heart. Thank you for sharing a bit of your day with me. Thank you for visualizing your dreams.

It is so cool that there is a part of our brain that helps us focus on what we are wanting to focus on.

Today I am grateful for running a bit low on cash, so that I am able to stay in a state of gratitude even at those times when I would like the mail box to have a check or two waiting for me and the only mail that is in the box, are flyers for store sales, I still do a gratitude dance to let the Universe know, that I still feel abundant in my heart, for being a generator of my emotional state, trusting that when I emit a vibration of grateful abundance the Universe responds with the like energy of grateful abundance and for having a job where I get work from home, so that I am able to meet my needs, like today I took a nap as my night sleep is thrown off track which means it is important for me to adapt so that I am able to be my joyful self. Thank you for the moments you were here with me today. Thank you for listening to your body today. I Love YOU. :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Flow

Vlog #74 is about going with the flow and being grateful for being able to move and exercise.

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert your name here to go with the flow) am open to going with the flow today. The best way I have found to go with the flow is to be appreciative for everything that happens in the day. When I appreciate the events of my day I am choosing to empower myself with a positive frame of reference. It is up to me to trust that everything that happens is happening for my highest good because when I live from that state of mind I feel relaxed and lighthearted. I have the strength to remind myself that I am committed to believing that the Universe I live and love in is supportive, caring and generous. I realize that the best way for me to observe a supportive, caring and generous Universe is for me to be supportive, caring and generous to the people in my life. Thank you for sharing a moment of your day with me. Thank you for appreciate something in your life today. I Love YOU. :~)

When I am able to go with the flow, being appreciative of all that happens, I fee safe.

Today I am grateful for my ability to get up and exercise for the purpose of caring for my body temple, this spacesuit created to perfectly adapt to planet earth, needs certain things to keep running in top form like movement, water, rest and jollification (my newest favourite word LOL LOL LOL) the more I am able to nourish my body with what it needs, the more empowered I feel, for embracing the opportunity to contribute to my own well being by thinking before I act or speak, so that my words soothe every cell of my being and every cell of everyone that crosses my path and for my faith that there is a natural way to heal my thyroid, my perimenopause and my allergies to hydrocarbons, it is up to me to do the research as to what will work for me. Thank you for stopping by to be grateful with me today. Thank you for caring for your perfect earth spacesuit. I Love YOU. :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Fenugreek

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

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kjxk4BnDi8

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. :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Enameling On Glass

Here is my vlog about what there is to be grateful for in my life and an affirmation written by me to help us stay focused on what we can do.  :~)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiz_0yNiu18

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) take time today to appreciate all that I have accomplished so far. I have decided to approve of all of my choices up to this date, as I have at least learned some lessons from each decision my heart made. My soul incarnated to learn, the best way I have found to learn, is to take actions that put me in new situations, that require me to learn new skills, in order to thrive in my new setting. By challenging myself to learn to build a web site, play the piano or manage my mind, I am increasing my chances of becoming a person who can really bring cheer to the planet. My emotional well being is in my capable hands because I am the one who decides what I think about and what I think about helps to create my emotional state. I focus on keeping my mind thinking about what I can do and my emotions focused on an attitude of gratitude then I feel competent. Thank you for joining me in self appreciation today. Thank you for approving of you. I Love You.  :~)

Today I am grateful for my brother Tim Sorensen for taking a photo of a piece of enameling on glass I did in 1990 (with my grandma Ruth Virgil’s mentorship, all the arts supplies came from my grandma’s stash of glass enameling goodies), for the memories that seeing my glass work brought to my heart, my love of affirmations, the smell of the gold luster burning off and whatever else burned up in the firing process, the time I spent sitting in my grandma’s kitchen doing the art, (at the time I created this piece my age was 26) the discussions my grandma and I had while we made art together and the feeling of accomplishment when a finished piece of glass came out of the kiln and for the warm tingle of appreciation that came over my entire body when I saw the image of my art posted by my brother on my facebook page, Gratitude Dance. Thank you for the time you were here today. Thank you for appreciating your work today. I Love YOU.  :~)

an image of a piece of enameling on glass art work created by me Stephanie Cerins on the piece of glass is a butterfly that is light blue, lavender, purple, pink, with a gold outline, then above the butterfly are the words written in gold I Am A Child Of God. I Have Love, Prosperity, Serenity and Health. the artist signed with her intials SLS in the year 1990

Creating this piece of art 26 years ago with a butterfly and an affirmation reminds me of my commitment to cheering up myself and others.

Affirmation, Gratitude and Stormy Weather

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) have a chance today to enjoy the storms of my life as well as the smooth sailing. When I allow my inner spiritual guru to be in charge of my emotions and thoughts it is easy for me to calm. I remember to breathe in slow rhythmic inhalations and exhalations which increases my oxytocin, dopamine and serotonin allowing me to feel composed. My inner spiritual guru knows it is within my powers to bring calmness to every situation I am in because I am a spiritual being having a human experience. At the times when I stay focused on the little child inside of each grown up I meet, it makes accepting their personal idiosyncrasies way easier. The gift of accepting other peoples foibles is that it helps me accept my own foibles easier too. Thank you for being a part of my life. Thank you for accepting yourself today. I Love YOU.  :~)

Witnessing the inner child and inner guru help me live an enjoyable life. :~) Blessings,

Today I am grateful for driving by the Cowichan River on the way home from Duncan, BC today and seeing the river running high and fast with lots of water, then I imagined the salmon and other river creatures gratitude dancing because of all the water, for getting to stay home today from the Duncan Farmers Market and create earrings instead of market them, as it was raining so much and we were a bit concerned that the wind driven rain might ruin some of the cards the earrings are displayed on and for getting to go by Robert Cerins parents home to check up on them, to make sure they are doing good with all this storm talk going on and as usual his parents were doing great with Robert’s father in the kitchen making homemade crab cakes from crab caught about 15 minutes away. Thank you for spending a few moments with me. Thank you for checking in on your loved ones. I Love YOU.  :~)
