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,

Eating good food increases my chances of feeling good in my body.

Today I am grateful for a place to call home for a while, as we are cleaning up a friends home to prepare it for sale, for getting internet connected yesterday in the home we are caring for as it is going to take some time to sort, organize, declutter and ready the home for sale, for getting to connect with my facebook family/group that I have been missing without a constant internet connection to make possible our daily dose of encouragement. Thank you for encouraging me with your presence. Thank you for creating a safe space for you to thrive in. I Love YOU. :~)

Having a place to call home allows me to feel grounded on earth. :~)

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. :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Ladies Night

Vlog #46 reflects the words written in this blog.  May hearing my passion for self love, encouragement and laughter allow you to look inside for your inner happiness.

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.   :~)

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.  ❤  :~)

an image with a deep purple background, and white words the an image below the words of a ying/yang symbol and two people connect in mind heart and spirit. 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.

A few photos of the Nanaimo Professional Craft Fair where Robert Cerins and I had a booth last weekend. :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Heart

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) practice listening to my heart’s wisdom today. I sit quietly for a few minutes with open ears and open mind to ask my heart what it wants. My heart responds with encouraging feeling of hope and empowerment. My heart feels glad that I am giving it some time to share it’s wisdom with me and I feel safe. The more I listen for the murmurs of my heart the more confidant and calm I become as my being is realizing it’s wholeness. I invest time in listening to my heart and I feel content. My heart is the organ that creates my electromagnetic field that touches the electromagnetic of everyone I meet and is capable of sharing amazing information with my mind when I give my heart the time it needs to share. Thank you for listening to your wise heart today. Thank you for embracing love. I Love YOU.

Affirmation, Gratitude and Clean Water

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) embrace my role as happiness enhancer today by smiling, holding doors and finding ways to be of useful service in my community. The more I think thoughts that make me feel confidant, the more my body language exudes my feeling of self worth and my steps are lighter. Happiness for me is a state of mind, so to increase my happiness, my focus is on all the blessings that are in my life already. I exercise my happiness muscles each time I choose to patiently wait in line by striking up a conversation with a person standing next to me, humming a tune or taking a few deep breathes to increase my ability to be calm. My emotional state is effected by my inside world as well as my outside world, I have some power to manage my inner world with compassion, which in turn shall effect my outer world and yours. Today I look at the world through the lens of compassion and I feel more relaxed. Thank you for being kind to you today. Thank you for enjoying one aspect about yourself today. I do. I Love YOU.  :~)
