Affirmation, Gratitude and Marketing

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert my name here to love my inner voice, just the way it is) have a chance today to listen to the thoughts that run through my head all day long. My thoughts were shaped by the environment I was raised in, by the experiences I have faced and by how I reacted to each situation every day of my life. Today I listen to my thoughts and the emotions that are entangled with them. Sometimes my thoughts are supportive, kind and caring. Other times my thoughts are frustrated, afraid or embarrassed. I choose to be friend all my thoughts and feelings. When I am aware of my thoughts and feelings it is possible for me to choose how I want to respond in all situations. During the times I am choosing how I respond, I feel empowered. Thank you for empowering yourself today by being aware of your thoughts and emotions. Thank you for spending a few moments of your day here with me. I Love YOU. :~)

Gifting myself time and energy to listen to my thoughts makes everything I do go more smoothly.


Today I am grateful for moving my business plans forward by writing to the Valley Voice putting in an ad to help people who have experienced domestic abuse, heal as October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, (my plan is to hold a weekly gathering starting in Oct. held in my home), for believing that the words written by me, have the ability to help increase the self worth and composure of the people who read my words, so that I am inspired to continue writing and for creating my own teas by buying bulk herbs from #thecommunityfarmstore in Duncan, BC the one in the image below is hibiscus and rose hip tea. Thank you for moving one of your dreams forward today. Thank you for helping me create a more peaceful planet by being peaceful. I Love YOU. :~)

I love Hibiscus & Rose Hip Tea as it is pretty, tasty and full of vitamin C.




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.  :~)

The Cowichan River flowing strong, my heart is full of gratitude that the fish are being nourished by the rains. :~)


Affirmation, Gratitude and A Sore Back

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) promise my body that I will start stretching and exercising five days a week from now on. The past few months have been busy and I let my physical health routine slid so now I am laying in the bed paying the price of not doing what I know is best for me to do. I love when my body feels strong and invigorated. I allow myself the time to exercise. I encourage myself with supportive words that spur me on to care for my sacred body temple. My thoughts are my greatest cheerleaders when I use my thoughts to bolster my resolve I feel motivated. When I feel motivated my body gets on the floor gently elongating my muscles with classic stretching moves. My muscles respond with suppleness and flexibility allowing me to move effortlessly. It empowers my heart that it is in my power to help my body thrive.  Thank you for nurturing your body today, it will thank you with good health.  :~)

Animals teach us to stretch every day, may I have learned my lesson to stretch for my health the way the animals intuitively do. :~)

Today I am grateful for all the backaches I have had before yesterday because yesterday morning I lifted an 18 litre bottle of water the first thing in the morning (something I do all the time lifting the bottle, usually not in the morning) and before I knew it my back was super sore and I spent all of yesterday laying in the bed, (the most frustrating part of the whole event was that I had told myself to go and get the water, the night before as my body is more ready for lifting in the night than in the early morning, but did I listen to me? NO! I waited until morning and am now paying for not listening to my inner voice) for knowing that stretching the muscles in my back when it is sore helps to relieve the soreness so that I am able to walk rigidly around the house and to the car so far today, Gratitude Dance and for Robert Cerins taking care of me yesterday and today while I have been wobbling around the house, laying like a lump in the bed generally being really chilled out all day. Thank you for joining me today. Thank you for listening to your body. I Love YOU.  :~)

Sometimes my body has to remind me to care for it through using the old technique of creating pain so I will soothe myself.
