Affirmation, Gratitude and Travel

Today’s Affirmation; I,_________, (insert my name here if I like) choose today to nourish my being with organic food with the best nutritional content. So today I shall source out the best places to buy nutritious food so that my body has the best chance of thriving. Farmers markets provide local produce in season, that is fresh and ready to strengthen my bones. In many towns there are Grocery Stores that stock their shelves with the highest quality food available to nurture our bones. I have decided that I am worth the extra money organic food costs. I invest in my future health with healthy food, because I am what I eat. Thank you for nourishing your bones with healthy food. Thank you for investing in your health. I Love YOU. :~)

This is two different health food stores we have stopped in so far. Whole Foods by Taylor Way in Vancouver and Olives Health food store in Function Junction just outside Whistler, BC. :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and A Ferry Ride

Here is today’s Vlog # 32 I recorded today’s video while riding the ferry to Vancouver

Today’s Affirmation; I, Stephanie, (insert your name here if you like) am going into a storm of grief today with an open heart that radiates compassion, empathy, love and acceptance. When I have a friend or loved one who is grieving I do my best to listen to their emotional pain with my entire being. My goal is to allow the person who is in deep grief to be heard, to hold space for the sorrow that they are emitting and to trust that the person is mourning in their own perfect way. My hope is that my whole heart can be present to their discomfort as a wise spiritual being that knows that death is a new beginning, a transformation back to pure possibilities and be a stand that grieving is good for the soul. Thank you for your precious time today. Thank you for allowing your heart the time it needs to grieve. I Love You. :~)

Today I am grateful for getting to the Departure Bay Ferry at 8:00am on the dot, so that we would be on time for our reservation, as we had to be at the ferry booth to pay right on time by 8:00am or we would lose our reservation spot with no refund, for getting to go to West Vancouver this morning to support Robert Cerins life long friend Jack Mants as there is a memorial to celebrate and honour his Jack’s sister Carol, it is a blessing to provide solace for Jack and his family in their time of mourning and for getting to go to some of the stores we supply in Whistler, Ocean Park, Granville Island and maybe some new stores with Original Earrings in the hopes of restocking the stores shelves with a sparkly selection of Holiday Hand Painted Earrings. Thank you for being a part of my day today. Thank you for being kind to yourself first today. I Love YOU.   :~)

Affirmation, Gratitude and Travel

Today’s Affirmation: I, Stephanie, have a chance today to affect all consciousness by being aware of where I focus my attention. I practice focusing on compassion, kindness and love. I trust that while my attention is on what I am able to contribute my heart feels full. I honour my spirit every time I explore my emotional self. I am the only person capable of meeting my needs. I listen to my needy little child that resides in my head, as well as the wise spiritual master that lives in my heart to attain balance while on this earthly plane. I exude peace in the hopes of spreading calmness and compassion in every heart I connect with. Thank you for sharing your love in the perfect way. Thank you for being loving, patient and kind people. I Love You. :~)
