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 Stress

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) have a chance today to use the stress in my life as a tool for my continued growth to be the happiest lady it is possible for me to be. It is exciting for me to realize that the quality of my life is directly effected by my ability to manage the stress that is natural in every life. It is up to me to invest time in learning the best ways for me to manage the daily worries of my heart with logical thoughts, meditation and deep breathing. My journey to self love depends on my ability to manage my emotions in ways that create in my being, much calmness, hope and possibilities. I view the daily mishaps, mistakes that I make and accidents caused by gravity as opportunities to exercise my muscles of forgiveness and acceptance. When other people do things that have a chance to trigger me to upset or self pity I nurture my heart with compassion, giving my emotional five year old heart, much empathy, compassion, kindness and patience so that I am able to comfort myself in the hopes of responding to stressful situations from a place of compassionate responding. Thank you for the moments you were here with me today. Thank you for loving your mistakes today. I Love You.  :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and A Barmah Hat

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) listen to the tones of voice that I hear today, it is important to pay attention to my tone of voice as well. It is vital to me to be calm when I speak so that my voice as well as my vibration is as soothing as possible. In every interaction of my life I have a chance to choose calmness. When I hear discomfort of any kind in the voice of the person speaking to me, I do my best to put myself in their shoes and think of a way to provide reassurance to their heart. The more my attention is focused on what my actions are moment by moment the more grounded I feel. It is in my power to create a centre of calmness just as the eye of a tornado is totally calm by focusing my energy on the here and now. Thank you for the time you were here today. Thank you for listening deeply to every voice you hear today. I Love You.  :~)

Today I am grateful for learning that when I wear my Barmah Hat in my office while I sit at my desk, the hat allows me to work because I can see the screen now, where at other times I had to find some cardboard to put in the window so that I could see the computer screen, for getting to get the two gold fillings put into my mouth today, when the dentist asked if I wanted freezing, I said no as the less of that weird painkilling drug in my system the better and it did not hurt at all when Dr. Dustin George drilled out the temporary fillings, it felt wonderful to feel brave and not have any freezing medicine and for getting to go and see a friend I have not seen for a while, she is always full of stories, great humour and heart felt connection so I am going to have a fun afternoon. Thank you for joining me in appreciating life today. Thank you for connecting with someone you love today. I Love YOU.

Affirmation, Gratitude and My Needs

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) choose to care for me first today. In the past I have put the needs of my partners or parents first however I have learned that is a sure way to burnout and resentment. In the present I shall pay attention to me, my needs and my emotional state. When I am feeling overwhelmed it is ok or even good for me to ask for help so that I feel safe. When I value my needs and emotions I draw to me other people who value their needs and emotions and also my needs and my emotions. The more I value me, the more I listen to my needs and emotions. At the times when I pay attention to my needs and emotions my life flows smoothly and I feel connected to myself and source energy. In the times I get glimpses of being connected to myself and source it inspires me to stay the course of loving me, listening to me and approving of me. Thank you for joining me today. Thank you for valuing yourself today, I value you. I Love YOU.  :~)

Thank you for connecting with me today. Thank you for dancing the next chance you get. I Love You. :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Connection

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) practice the art of listening today, to what is underneath the words, my joy is listening for the emotions in the words so that I am able to connect with the speaker on the deepest emotional level possible. The most important person for me to listen to is me and my emotions so that I am able to respond to the events of my life in a way that pleases me. Responding with awareness to the events and people in my day brings a sense of calmness to my heart and mind allowing me to feel safe. When I listen to the emotions of others my hope is to increase their sense of safety too. Thank you for evolving to your highest self today. Thank you for listening to your emotions today. I Love You. :~)

Today I am grateful for the fun and abundant day we had at the Duncan Farmers Market https://www.facebook.com/DuncanFarmersMarket/?fref=ts yesterday we are blessed to be a part of this market, as we get to see friends and family every week, for my belief that kindness is my strongest ally while walking the world in my human form, as I incarnated to connect to other hearts, kindness helps me accomplish that connection and for trusting that I am right where I am supposed to be at all times even if I am running late, because my being runs on spiritual time, even though that plays havoc in my three dimensional world at times. Thank you for being incarnated today. Thank you for being kind today. I Love You.  :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Praise

Here is the video of me reading today’s affirmation and gratitude.  :~)

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) explore my commitment to self growth today by doing activities that increase the chances of me thriving. I spend time applying the spiritual principle of forgiveness, by first forgiving myself for any and all unkind thoughts I have had about me. Instead of silently berating myself under my breath today I praise my small accomplishments like getting the garbage out on time, finishing my bookkeeping, taking a walk in the forest with my sweet husband or just spending time quietly preparing a healthy meal with an attitude of gratitude. When my thoughts and emotions are constructive I feel creative and aligned. When my thoughts and emotions are aligned all my projects, human connections and actions flow with ease. Thank you for breathing deeply today. Thank you for embracing your innate wisdom today. I Love You.  :~)

That is just so cool to me, how do you feel about that comment? :~)

Today I am grateful for having a sunny day to clean up our home because our landlady put her property on the market, where the home is we live on, so now I get to deep clean our home with the hope that the prospective buyers are excited to see our abode, for having a wonderful landlady who is supportive, compassionate, patient and fun to connect with (here is a link to the property where we live http://tours.imagemaker360.com/Viewer/82.asp?ID=147359) and for my ability to connect to the energy that sparked all hearts through the implementation of meditation, as my friendship with meditation started in 1996 with my introduction to Paramahansa Yogananda from a trusted friend. Thank you for your time today. Thank you for connecting to source energy in your own perfect way today. I Love You.   :~)
