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. :~)

When I am able to lend a hand with an open heart I feel empowered. :~)

Today I am grateful for the rain, we are staying in Ladysmith dog sitting for our friends Chip Nary and Alexa Grier where it has been raining all morning, Yeah Hoo, for the ability of soap and water to remove the germs and unpleasant odors that exist along side of people and animals and for getting to sell a stunning Chrystalline Vortex Vase made by our talented friend Chip Nary as I was sitting in his home dog sitting, doing some marketing for Original Earrings I heard a knock on the door and by the end of my connection with the lady she bought a vase, while my friend is on vacation with his sweetie Alexa Grier! Thank you for being grateful for something in your life today. Thank you for being here on earth with us today. I Love YOU. :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Kindnesses

Vlog #78 is about being gentle with ourselves so that we can learn how to relax, unwinding the mind and giving comfort to the heart and as always what there was in my life to be grateful for in the hopes of sparking your attitude of gratitude. :~)

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert your name here to practice relaxing) shall be gentle with myself today so that my busy mind has a chance to unwind. This is a good day to focus on letting the angels do their part, as I have done all I can, to make everything happen, it is now my time to breathe, trust and expect everything is going perfectly. The most important action I can take, is to be calm in the situation, visualize the solutions that I want to have happen and to have confidence that whatever the outcome, it is in my best interest. I allow all good to come to me by realizing my self worth. I breathe in abundance and exhale generosity. I inhale abundance and exhale generosity. When I imagine a life filled with plenty, enhanced by the emotions of feeling content, the Universe witnesses my sense of comfort and gives me more to be comfortable about. Thank you for coming by for a dose of cheer. Thank you for feeling comfortable in your life. I Love YOU. :~)

Contentment comes for me, from a practice of being joyous just because it feels good to feel good. :~)

Today I am grateful for having dinner made for Robert and I by Robert Cerins‘ 91 year old dad on Saturday after the Duncan Farmers Market, just as we were packing up our booth, Robert’s mom called and said “Papa made you food to eat, can you come over for a meal?” and we said “yes” and had a baked chicken dinner, gratitude dance, (as we were hungry after a day at the farmers market) for trusting that the money is coming in at the perfect time, all the time, even when I do not see that exact reality in my life, I hold the feeling of abundance in my heart and mind exuding generosity at all times and for the knowledge passed on in books, from the explorers of the heart, that being kind and patient in all situations takes more courage than any other response possible. Thank you for being here with me today. Thank you for being bravely kind today. I Love YOU. :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Heart

Vlog #69 invites us to exude love always and I share an example of what I am grateful for today.

 

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert your name here to exude love always) exercise my heart by being lovingly patient today. Instead of exercising my heart physically today, my goal is to exert my heart by being loving in all situations. I take the situations that arise in my life, that cause me to feel stressed and turn my instant frustrated reaction, into a thought out plan for emitting compassion, patience, friendliness, forgiveness and faith. It is within my power to think before I act or speak, so that my words will be kind first and foremost. I feel empowered when I temper my emotions with my compassionate heart, increasing my self confidence, as with much practice I train myself to be composed. I radiate love from the every cell of my being and I feel safe. Thank you for the bit of time you spent here with me. Thank you for emitting self confidence and kindness. I Love YOU. :~)

This is my goal daily. :~)

Today I am grateful for my favourite fried egg pan which is a low sided cast iron skillet, that is perfectly seasoned, is only used for fried eggs, allowing an exquisitely fried egg to be had each and every time, for learning the trick to keeping my cast iron skillet in impeccable shape, the cleaning technique I apply is to only use a clean cloth with no soap and hot water, just as a grill is cleaned in a professional kitchen there is no soap used, I put a bit of water in the pan, turn the burner on wait a few minutes until the hot water has loosened the food, wipe the pan dry, then oil the pan until it is sparkly clean ready to go again and for how the smell of bacon fills the house with its tantalizing aroma, creating in my heart a feeling of comfort, family and holidays. Thank you for being here with me today. Thank you for allowing your heart to be filled with gratitude 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.  :~)

This is what I endeavor to do every day so that I am capable of emitting love at a moments notice. :~)

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 Sauerkraut

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) have a responsibility to the energy that created me, to use my energy to be an asset to my family, my community and my world.

I have an opportunity today to be kind. I have the ability to slow myself down so that when I speak my words are compassionate.

It is my responsibility to communicate my needs in ways that make it easy for the people in my life to help me, meet my daily requirements.

The best way I have found to share my needs is to take a deep breath, imagine the person being overjoyed to meet my request with an open heart and then speak my words in a tone of voice that is easy to listen to.

Then it is important to me to be able to meet the needs of the people in my life with an attitude of gratitude of being of useful service.

So when I am asked to meet the needs of my loved one, I repeat a silent mantra of gratitude for being needed. Thank you for being here today with me, as I need you. Thank you for meeting your needs in a compassionate way. I Love YOU.  :~)

Today I am grateful for getting my sauerkraut done yesterday evening, when the sauerkraut was finished there was just one head of fresh cabbage left over after 35 pounds of cabbage was what there was when I started, this time the flavour of the sauerkraut is turmeric, cumin, and coriander with poblano and anaheim mild chili peppers, for starting to write affirmations for people who need them again, to bolster their confidence, help them find their inner joy and lead them to their personal well of unconditional love of life and for my sauerkraut stomper that Robert Cerins and his father Robert made for me to pound the love into the sauerkraut and the water out of the sauerkraut (as you can see in the image below that there is cabbage floating in the juice that the salt and pounding released from the cabbage) my stomper is pictured resting on the water bath ring of the crock in this photo. Thank you for stopping by to see me today. Thank you for appreciating someone today. I Love You. :~)

an image of a sauerkraut crock that is full to the top before the weights are added you can see the poblano peppers in between the cabbage, you can see part of the sauerkraut stomper, which is what the cabbage is pounded with to release the water.

This is the sauerkraut I made Sept. 27th 2016. The piece of wood on the water trough of the crock is made of maple my husband Robert Cerins and his father Bob made it for me. Gratitude Dance!

The water you see in the image was released from the cabbage itself through the action of salt and pounding the cabbage in the crock.
