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.

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. ❤ :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and The Reticular Activating System

Vlog #73 Gratitude, Affirmation and The Reticular Activating System stimulate a response of gratitude and explores how to prime our Reticular Activating System.

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert your name here to guide your Reticular Activating System) choose to invest time training my Reticular Activating System by focusing on positive aspects of my life. When I was preparing for the Canadian Citizenship test, part of the training for me, was to keep reminding myself that taking tests is one of my strong suits, reinforcing the idea with the hopes of priming my Reticular Activating System so it would help me to pass the test. It seems to have worked since I got 19 right out of 20 on the test, passing with flying colours. What is a Reticular Activating System you ask? It is the part of our brain stem that filters out what is important to us. The best way to orient my Reticular Activating System is by influencing my mind with constructive thoughts. The more I focus on the parts of my life that bring me joy the more joy my Reticular Activating System finds for me to notice, embrace and enjoy. Thank you for joining my in creating joy in our world. Thank you for priming your Reticular Activating System to notice the Love in your life. I Love YOU. :~)

Today I am grateful for a sunny dry day to set up our booth for the Duncan Farmers Market, we had a great spot right in the Duncan City Square, saw lots of friends, sold a few pairs of earrings and enjoyed the man who plays the accordion, for the many remedies that are available to cure the hot flashes and evening adventures into sleep deprivation, it will be my pleasure to announce with glee when I find the remedy that works for me, LOL LOL LOL and for the feedback it was my delight to receive, that when I connected the amazing Chip Nary from Happy Zak’s Handyman Service with Daphne a new friend, I made at the Duncan Farmers Market, who needs a bunch of help with her home, so when I talked to her today it was awesome to hear Daphne rave about how perfect Chip Nary was to help her with her home repair projects. My heart sings when I connect people who help each other. What makes your heart sing? Thank you for being here with me today. Thank you for exploring an adventure in gratitude today. I Love YOU.   :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Body Love

Vlog #49 Affirmation Gratitude and Joy Ride

Today’s Affirmation; I, _________, (insert your name here if you are willing to love your body) have been blessed with a human body that carries around my powerful spiritual self. Having a Human body is my chance to get to savour, taste, touch, smell, see or hear, to get the opportunity to experience the many sensations my body is capable of, which is why I incarnated. Being on earth where everyday is an opportunity to love myself and everyone else, a little more, is a blessing. I have a responsibility to my spirit to take actions that allow me to grow into my most caring, compassionate self. The more I open my heart to the possibility that I matter, that my thoughts are my assets and my feelings are my allies, the more my intuition speaks loud enough so that I am able to make the bold positive moves, creating the self expression, only possible through belief in myself. I am worthy of my dreams. It is up to me to give myself the gift that is self confidence. Thank you for stopping by to connect in self appreciation. Thank you for believing in yourself. :~)

I love the image I found on this blog. https://delafro.com/…/journey-to-self-love-with-self-care-…/

Today I am grateful for having a bright sunny day after days and days of gray skies, this morning the ground was all covered with diamonds of frost sparkling in the sunshine to provide a stunning morning visual delight, for getting to be a part of Winterfest Craft Fair https://www.facebook.com/WinterFest-Craft-Fair-31756127161…/, where we reconnected with vendors we know and love, entertained the crowd with our holiday inspired outfits and marketed Hand Painted Original Art To Wear created by Robert Cerins and for having a day of rest today where I am making a few earrings, hanging out, eating my own homemade chicken soup and making sure I am gentle with me. Thank you for sharing a part of your day with me. Thank you for finding something to be grateful for today. I Love YOU!   :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Mom’s

Here is the Vlog # 43 created about the affirmation for Mom’s and what I was grateful for yesterday.

https://youtu.be/giEMD7I0MLU

Today’s Affirmation is for all the Mom’s of the world.

I, (a Mom that may need encouragement), trust that my children are the perfect children for me. The beings that choose to be born from my body are here because they knew that I was the perfect Mom for them. It takes a special person who is willing to embrace the emotional, spiritual and physical journey that growing up entails so today I am choosing to be gentle with me as if I were the new born baby. I listen to my every emotion so that I can nourish my inner child with the same amount of energy that I love the children that I released into the world. It is important for my children that I nourish me, so that when I am giving to them it is from a place of fullness and running over with compassion, energy and lightness. I choose to see the endless possibilities my children offer me to unconditionally love myself and them as we flow through life as the divine spiritual being that we all are.
I am a cherished child of Universal Love and Universal Love trusts that I am the perfect Mom for my child’s best chance.

I, Stephanie, know that being a Mom is just one aspect of the amazing ladies that you are. Thank you for embracing yourself as an unconditionally loving Mom. I Love You. :~)

Having a mom who loves me unconditionally is a gift. ❤ :~)

Today I am grateful for our friends James Deptuch and Christine Deptuch coming over to see us, falling in love with an original painting named “The Carousel Of Life” that has been close to Robert Cerins‘ heart for many years (as he painted it and never showed it much, he always keeps some of his favourite paintings), so the two of them choose to invest in the painting and took Robert’s artwork home, Gratitude Dance, for trusting in the Universe that I am exactly where I am supposed to be at all times, especially since the planet where my being landed for this lifetime is a stunning garden of Eden and for acknowledging that my life is a gift of Universal Love given to me freely, for me to use as I choose, so today I am selecting to express this warm fuzzy Love by seeing the love that started each heart beating on the 18th day of life in the eyes of each person who crosses my path. Thank you for allowing me to love you. Thank you for acknowledging the miracle that we all are. I Love YOU. :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Sameness

Here is Vlog #41 where I read the words below, may you find joy, laughter and confidence.

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) choose to direct my attention to everything I have in common with each person I meet. Every person on this planet is 99.9% the same as me, so all people are truly related to me! My heart swells with energy each time I connect with the heart of another human being. So today I make a conscious effort to connect with the hearts of the people who cross my path, by wearing colourful clothing, smiling, being patient when I am standing in line, witnessing every single human soul I meet today as a small child just wanting to be loved, creates in my heart a compassionate perspective from which to go about my day. How do you create compassion in your heart to share? Thank you for savouring the moments of your life today. I Love YOU.  ❤  :~)

The words on the image read Divine Union is a much more sacred dance than we are told. It begins with how we think about each other. The Universe is listening to our every thought. When we first align with divinity through mutual appreciation we allow the Universe in where the mind and ego often close the doors. Appreciation, above all else opens all our channels.

Connecting at the heart with another human is necessary to me to have the fullest human experience possible.

Today I am grateful that my back is on the mend once again, it seems the issue my back is having is related to my menstrual cycle so that is making my life much more interesting and keeping my focus, on keeping up with the self care, of morning exercise as I took two mornings off and my back pain returned, LOL LOL LOL Self Care Rules! For trusting that by paying attention to my body, my emotions, the amount of rest my being is receiving, the choices that fill my grocery cart and the thoughts my mind repeats, that I will be rewarded with continuing good health, just by being present and for acknowledging the successes that have brought me to where I am today, so that more often than not I find my self in a state of appreciation. Thank you for joining me in joy today. Thank you for acknowledging your successes. I Love YOU.

Getting to connect to all the people that come into our booth makes my heart soar with delight. :~)

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.
