Affirmation, Gratitude and Supporting Us

Today’s Affirmation; I, am starting to understand that my thoughts are things. My thoughts are the seeds to my emotions and actions. When I think thoughts that cause me to feel happy I get happy wrinkles. The more happy thoughts I think, the happier the wrinkles on my face get. I make thinking about my thoughts a priority today. I choose my thoughts carefully as my thoughts are creating my wrinkles. I choose to think that I am beautiful. I spending time thinking about the parts of my loved ones that I enjoy. I visualize my needs being met easily and my entire body relaxes and so do my wrinkles. My thoughts can be directed by me. I invest time thinking constructive thoughts and I feel safe. Thank you for guiding your mind to think joyful thoughts. Thank you for spending a bit of your day with me. I Love YOU. :~)

I think joyous thoughts so that my face grows joyous wrinkles. ❤ :~)

Today I am grateful for how the Happiness Enhancing Gathering went last night, everyone that was there said they would be back again next week, Gratitude Dance, we did some deep breathing, we shared from our hearts, we created heart centered personal connections and I wrote a personalized affirmation for each Happiness Enhancer
(a Happiness Enhancer is someone who is choosing to be present to their emotions and has a desire to direct their emotions in positive ways) that attended. We had rooibos tea and Kettle Chips, good conversations and a few laughs.
For getting the kitchen in the home we are living in a bit more organized so that when I walk in the kitchen now, it is sounding hollow or empty and looking organized almost zen, LOL,
And for how excited and alive I felt after the gathering last night we got home at 10:00pm my bed time and I was so energized that I was awake until 11:30 or so with lots of energy. I am still feeling the tingle this morning.
What are you grateful for today? Thank you for spending some of your precious time with me today. Thank you for finding out what makes you tingly in life. I Love YOU. :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Peace

Today’s Affirmation; I, shall do my best to keep my thoughts, feelings and spirit in a calm and peaceful state today. I practice the art of deep breathing to make it possible for me to be present and peaceful in the world. Each moment is an opportunity for me to create a good story about the situation I am in. When I think good thoughts, I feel safer, stronger and more capable. By being present to my thoughts and emotions I am able to be accepting of the behaviour of the people in the world with me. I am a stand for peace because I am peaceful. Thank you for being peaceful today! Thank you for being here on earth with me today. I Love YOU! :~)

Today I am grateful for the article in the Cowichan Valley Voice on page 66, where there is an ad for my Happiness Enhancing Gathering Tuesday October 3, 2017, a short bit about what the Happiness Enhancing session will be like and my first published Happiness Enhancing Affirmation in the Cowichan Valley Voice, Woo Hoo!
For making amends to my mom yesterday on Skype as when I was a teenager my dad died when I was 15 and a half, after that I did what ever I wanted, then there was the time I did not talk to my mom for about 3 to 4 years, so I just told her I was sorry I added to her pile of pain, as my mom has lots of pain in her life, she did not need mine too and that I wished I had done better, she started crying and said thank you and blamed my x-husband and I said that at the end of the day I am responsible for my actions, it was soothing to my core to make amends to my mom.
And for getting to witness my body get stronger when I exercise, observing how a few months ago I could hardly do a few of the exercises that I am now doing reps of 15 and 20 of each one.
What are you grateful for today? Thank you for joining me in being grateful today! Thank you for making amends to someone you love. I Love YOU! :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Enjoyment

Today’s Affirmation; I, spend time thinking about ways to enjoy each moment of the day. When I am cleaning the house I put my favourite music on and rock out as I dust the shelves. When I do the dishes I witness how the warm water feels on my skin and I imagine I am in a hot spring on a warm sunny day. I have smart brains and a powerful imagination. It is up to me to use my mind, in my best interest. I practice thinking thoughts that instill in my heart a sense of confidence. I am patient. I am kind. I am a good listener. I am good organizer. I have a chance to encourage myself every moment of the day. When I encourage me I feel safe. I am a cherished child of the Universe and the Universe is proud of me. :~)

Spending time with a trusted friend, taking a hot bath or just having a moment of silence in the car before leaving for an appointment . I find quiet moments for me and I feel refreshed. :~)

Today I am grateful for my getting to be a part of the Collective Space where I shall be holding the first four sessions of Happiness Enhancing Gatherings on the first four Tuesday’s of October, (event page coming soon) for creating a Wellness Circle where healing practitioners will offer their services to clients on a donation basis, for what ever it is worth to the receiver and for the feeling that organizing these two events and stepping out and sharing my book are causing in me, a feeling of confidence and excitement at the same time. I am feeling tingly and empowered. Thank you for being here on earth with me today. Thank you for sharing your successes with me. 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 nose gives me the ability to smell lilacs in the spring which fills my entire being with joy. My ears share with me the music of people who live to express their joy through song. 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. Thank you for appreciating your physical body. Thank you for listening to your senses. I Love YOU!  ❤  :~)

Listening to my six senses creates in my heart a feeling of well being.

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. :~)

Creating a gathering in this space fills my heart with hope and delight.

Affirmation, Gratitude and Forethought

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert my name here to think about the words I speak) have an opportunity today to think about the words that spill from my lips today. My words can heal the ones I love when I speak with forethought. My words are powerful when I speak from my heart. I speak words that offer encouragement to myself and others, which invokes in my heart a feeling of compassion. As I cheer up the people in my life with my loving words I too am cheered up. Each time I open my mouth I have a chance to speak words that sooth the hearts of everyone who hears my voice. Thank you for thinking about the words you speak. Thank you for speaking kindly to your precious heart. I Love You. ❤ :~)

Today I am grateful for waking up at 4:30 this morning, because I trust that the most important action it is possible for me to take, is to be thankful for everything, for getting 5,000 new earring cards so that we can supply the 40 stores that sell Robert Cerins Original Earrings with new stock and for getting to dream about how I want my future to be, as my imagination is my friend and ally in co-creating my success in my personal and business relationships. Thank you for finding aspects of your life to be grateful for. Thank you for being kind to yourself today. I Love You. ❤ :~)

Gratitude and 2 More Book Stores

Today I am grateful for getting my books into two new book stores, which makes a total of three stores so far on this trip. Gratitude Dance! One book store in Toronto, ON called Another Story Bookshop https://www.facebook.com/anotherstorybookshop/
and one in Ottawa, ON called Singing Pebble http://www.singingpebblebooks.ca/
for the feeling of my dream coming true, of being an author, as one of the shelters I dropped a book off at, on our way east, wanted me to come and speak and so on Wednesday this week, two days ago, one of my dreams came true of getting to share my story to women whose lives have been touched by domestic abuse. I am thrilled to be accomplishing what I was put on this planet to do, that is to write and share stories.

To share what I have learned from the thousands of hours I have read books on the topic of self-help, positive psychology, salesmanship, spirituality and confidence building, then put into practice the ideas the books shared with me to see which ones were really helpful for me.

It seems other people are finding my words inspiring too because yesterday right after my talk I received a call from another shelter that wants me to speak. So hopefully I will hear from them today about when I get to share my story of hope and happiness.

May you have the courage to follow your dreams. Thank you for inspiring me by stopping by my page. I Love YOU.  ❤
