Affirmation, Gratitude and Lymphatic Massage

Today’s Affirmation; I, embrace all my emotions as my friend. Today I befriend my anger and resentment. When I listen to my angry and resentful feelings it nourishes my heart. My anger is there to tell me when my boundaries are being crossed. When I feel angry or resentful I pay attention to what I am angry or resentful about. I must care for me if I want to care for others, so that I am giving from a place for fullness. My angry emotions only want to protect me from some perceived trouble. I value all my emotions and I feel calmer. I am worthy. I am lovable. Thank you for spending a bit of your day with me. Thank you for bravely loving all your valuable emotions. I Love YOU. ❤ :~)

Today I am grateful for the group Cowichan Healing Arts as yesterday when I went to the page by accident a lady was asking for a Lymphathic Drainage Massage which I know how to do, so I wrote under her post, I would love to be of service to you, then she called made an appointment, we met today, she just left feeling relaxed, Gratitude Dance for Social Media, for trusting that I am right where I am supposed to be even when that place is in between homes and for allowing myself to believe that I am valuable, important and lovable.

Affirmation, Gratitude and A Home

Today’s Affirmation; I,_________, (insert my name here to be self confident) have a chance today to increase my self confidence by being my own best friend. When I set a goal to keep my kitchen clean, then I follow through by doing the dishes, each day before I go to bed, then I wake up to a clean kitchen, feeling successful. When I nourish my body with whole foods, at least two or three times a day my body responds with vibrant health and energy. Each time I fuel my being with fresh vegetables (locally grown if possible) my every cell feels renewed. When I make small strides daily to care for my body, mind and spirit, my body, mind and spirit, feel enlivened. I care for my body and my body enables me to enjoy my life. I am a courageous child of the Universe and the Universe is elated when I care for my earthly spacesuit. 

Blessings,

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. :~)

Today’s Affirmation; I, _______, (insert your name here if you need encouragement) am willing to believe that I am able to effect my life by how I perceive the events of my life. Today I pretend that I am able to witness my emotions as if they are the emotions of my best friend. When I am able to take a step back from my emotions by inhaling and exhaling at the times I feel my stomach tighten, my jaw clench or my frustration level rise, it allows me to calm my emotional self, look at my feelings with an open mind and a heart encouraging me to seek solutions. The more time I spend listening to my emotions, the more my emotions will be able to guide me, through the ups and downs of life with grace.  My emotional well being is in my capable hands and I promise me to honour, accept and embrace all my emotions as my trusted friends. Thank you for stopping by to connect to your courage today. Thank you for listening to your wise emotional self. I Love YOU.   :~)
