Christmas Magic
December 15, 2021

Since I was a small child, I have always known there was magic, and not just the magic at Christmas time. Children use creative visualization from a place of love and innocence. However, I truly believe that no matter what is going on in the world magic exists in the form of positive intention. Through gratitude, and visualizing your desired outcome, you can create anything you desire.

 

To achieve your desired goal, relax and imagine in your third eye exactly the way you want the outcome. Listening to your inner "self”, you will be guided to take the perfect steps in creating your positive intention. When you do that, through love, all that you aspire will come quickly and in unexpected ways. 💜Blessings c

Holiday Overwhelm
December 11, 2021

Funny how the joy of the holidays has become more about the should and could. I remember a time, when I was younger, when the giving of gifts was more from the heart to show your appreciation to those you love. Christmas, unfortunately, has become commercialized and over the top. So here are a few tips on how to enjoy the season and balance your family obligations, while staying centered.

 

The secret to a less stressful holiday season is recognizing that you have choices. Remind yourself that family traditions are meaningful and not supposed to be a burden. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by too much obligation — whether it be parties, gifts, or preparing food, step back and regroup. Spending the day, or an evening, with family should not be stressful, but fun. Make your own choices and plans and stick to them. Make the best of every gathering. It can be the most wonderful time of year. 💜Blessings c

When manifesting your intentions action shows the Universe that you are serious about creating your intention. This sets a the right frequencies of energy into motion that will allow your desire to manifest in your life. Law of Magnetism states that everything that has happened in your life – the people, things, and opportunities that have come into your life, as well as the circumstances in which you have found yourself – is a result of the energy you put out into the world.  Jack Canfield

Look Inward and Outward
November 24, 2021

Fall is a time of decisions, looking inward and outward, and choosing what to let go of. It may not always feel comfortable, but we must let go or we will get bogged down in our old belief systems from the past. Through the exploration of a consistent self-reflection and inner examination, we become more conscious, authentic, and real. 💜Blessings c

Cultivating a Full Life
November 23, 2021

Fall's breathtaking journey, as the foliage turns from green to red and gold, is a time to cultivate a life filled with health, love, honesty, and integrity. Pursuing all of this involves becoming the divine watcher, or the spiritual witness, to our thoughts.

 

As this profound sense of stillness and truth develops, we begin to understand a deeper space inside ourselves. It then becomes easier to let go of our ego illusions. Being able to move into this internal space of now means "that all is well in our world".  💜Blessings c

Warm Heart
November 18, 2021

When we live in the moment of a warm heart, we can understand that everything rests in the expansive space of our divine loving heart. When we live in the power of love and gratitude we have a divine connection to God. 💜Blessings c

Together We Got This
November 16, 2021

Although we may be apart, we are not alone because we are lightworkers. Tapping into this realm of togetherness is essential for our faith to grow and relationships to thrive. As a spiritual family there’s no separating our individual journeys from each other. We are committed to spiritually working together; our soul's growth is the biggest part of our lightworker mission. It really is quite beautiful. By reaching out to each other, whether in person, on social media, or in our prayers we are one in love and light. 💜Blessings c

Follow Your Inner Guidance

Imagine that there is a powerful presence within you. This presence is totally loving, strong, and wise. It is nurturing, protecting, guiding, and caring for you. It can also be light, joyful, and playful. Take a moment today to tap into this loving presence and trust your inner guidance to show you the way. 💜Blessings c

Higher Consciousness
November 4, 2021

Think of our higher consciousness as what we could do if we believe everything is possible for the highest good.

 

What if each of us choose to sense the bigger picture and believed everything we needed from the divine universe was absolutely attainable?

 

To do that, we must tune into our spirit, divine intentions, and loving aspirations. Then, hold the clear vision, and look past current circumstances as we shift our experience into only creating for our highest good.

 

Ask yourself this question: What do I want to create?

💜Blessings c

but live with the love they left behind.

When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy. Rumi

A New Look at Life
October 27, 2021

Many people move to new locations to change-up their life hoping that the new surroundings will create a completely different experience. However, wherever you go, you are still the same person. Your circumstances will not change because you change locations. Once you are ready to shift intentionally, and identify your own creation, life will change for the better.

 

What if you decided to do the things you love doing, and do them well? What passionate things in life would you choose? Just take a step, any step, to acknowledge your passion and breathe into your creation and you will be happier. 💜Blessings c

Balancing Light and Dark
October 24, 2021

Fall is the season for balancing light and dark, but is also the perfect time for releasing things that have been weighing us down. As Fall approaches, and life slows down, we can practice getting out of the way and let Spirit take charge of our lives in ethereal ways.

 

Being healthy is about creating balance between what you can accomplish authentically, and what you think you want egotistically. This is a wonderful time to break away from old habits of “should’ve” and step into being at peace within the world as it is now. It is about finding harmony in your material and spiritual world. 💜Blessings c

Your Internal Fire
October 21, 2021

The passion that burns in your soul helps to sustain you through difficult times. This fire creates the energy necessary to overcome obstacles and solve problems. It also creates the momentum to take you closer to realizing your dreams.

 

Sometimes the fire that fuels your passion can flicker and burn out. Without a flame to show you the way, you can become discouraged. When the flame is gone, you may begin to feel hopeless and want to give up. When this happens, you will need to find new ways to become re-energized.

 

By doing the following, you can re-ignite the fire inside and become the fuel needed to get you going again. Reflect on  what you to want to create. Consider these intentions as a road map; a blueprint for creating a life that is truly your own; a life filled with happiness and passion.

Blue Skies

Some teachings have evolved positive affirmations beginning with “I am”: “I am well.” “I am happy.” “I am whole.” And they have cautioned us not to say, “I am sick” or “I am tired” or “I am unhealthy.” And we find that these affirmations work, not only because of the power of positive thinking but because the very name I AM itself releases the energy of God. 

 

 Excerpt from Your Divine Blueprint, Elizabeth Clare Prophet

image.jpg

“You are loved just for being who you are, just for existing. You don’t have to do anything to earn it. Your shortcomings, your lack of self-esteem, physical perfection, or social and economic success – none of that matters. No one can take this love away from you, and it will always be here.”   Ram Dass

Fall - A Season of Change
October 13, 2021

Fall is the perfect time to let out your inner child; to explore, to walk, and to play in the red and gold colored leaves. I believe the fall season is a reminder that change is constant in each moment. I ask you; are you ready to uncover the next level of your divine potential, embrace a more conscious you, inspire and cultivate personal growth, and accept trust and tranquility in your everyday life?  💜Blessings c 

Autumn 
September 6, 2021

As you wrap up your bucket list of summer things you did, you can now start checking off your Autumn bucket list. Let’s face it, from the brilliantly colored leaves falling from the trees to the sweet smell of pumpkin spice, there’s a bit of magic when it comes to the fall season.  Whether you are harvesting crops, or seeking to harvest family memories, this ultimate list of fun autumn activities will keep you pleasantly busy.  💜Blessings c

Learning to love and trust ourselves is one of the most powerful ways for us to serve in the world. The love that we give to ourselves is well deserved. If you are reading this, you have worked a long time to evolve and become a good and truly heart-centered person.         

Why do we allow fear to take over our life?

 

With all the fear and uneasiness going on in the world; are we becoming chronically afraid? When our minds and intentions are taken over, by extraneous fear, our life stops. Fear has a way of debilitating us and blocks us from taking positive, or any action to move forward in our life. 

 

At times, fear can seep into our daily life unnoticed and unchecked. Most common types of fear are unnecessary fears. This means that, unlike instinctive fear, these types of fear are mostly a fabrication of our mind, or instilled through past experiences, or experiences outside of us. Unnecessary fear can and must be identified and avoided. They serve no real purpose apart from hindering our actions, goals, and takes away our power.

 

Fear will convince us that nothing we do will ever be enough to feel safe. Feeling safe comes from our faith that we create our own reality, and we don’t have to go through anything. If we do, unfortunately create sometime that is painful, we are powerful enough to get through it unscathed.💜Blessings c

Autumn Equinox

How does the Autumn Equinox (Wednesday, September 22, 2021) affect us? How can we shift from summer to fall, and make the change holistically and with grace?

 

Autumn is the season to retreat. It's your time to focus on your health, especially your skin which has become dehydrated during the summer. Just as leaves fall from the trees, the fall season is the time to let go. Make it a time of transition for your body and the earth.

 

Making small adjustments in your daily routine can benefit you during this seasonal change. Eat foods in season; fruits and veggies that balance your body’s dryness. Increase sleep as your body slows down for fall and winter. Start to wind down about an hour before bedtime by taking a warm bath, or shower, using a dry brush or loofah to defoliate your skin. Anything that makes you feel warm, cozy, and nourished and get a good night’s sleep! 💜Blessings c 

A Well-designed Life
September 19, 2021

To design your life, you need to start where you are. A well-designed life is a life that makes sense. It is a life in which who you are, in what you believe, and what you do, and they all line up together. A well-designed life is a marvelous portfolio of experiences, of adventure, of failures that teach you important lessons, to recognize the hardships that made you stronger and helps you know yourself better.

Everything Exists Already
September 13, 2021

You see, everything exists already.  Every thought you have, every dream you hold, every desire you seek, absolutely all of it already exists. I don’t mean this metaphorically; I mean this quite literally. It’s all here, right beside you. So why can’t you see it; why aren’t you able to experience it? The answer is vibration. 

 

When you understand that everything is made up of energy, and subsequently vibrating at a particular rate or frequency, then you will also understand that the only thing that separates you from anything you cannot perceive is your rate of vibration.  This is in relation to everything you are seeking; like attracts like.  You can only experience what you are in perfect resonance with. We must be persistent and have an unwavering focus on the events and circumstances that are in front of us.  See them happening for your highest good in divine timing.  💜Blessings c

Labor Day 2021
September 4, 2021

We pay tribute on Labor Day to our nation's strength, freedom, and leadership - to the American worker. Thank you for supporting our healthcare workers, first responders, and truck drivers, as well as all the workers who help our lives function successfully. Together, as a nation, we support each other compassionately as we go through our daily lives. Let's focus in gratitude on the success of our nation and the people that are doing their best to make our lives better. 💜Blessings c

Self Care
September 1, 2021

You are a creative vessel, which is why it is so vital to take care of yourself. Self care, and making the time to relax, rest, meditate and nurture self is as important as breathing. Take a moment to check in with your body, mind, and spirit to ask what it needs to be healthy and balanced. What does your creative inner wisdom, or your intuition, tell you what you need do right now? 💜Blessings c

Mother of the Light by Cathleen L. Balfour
August 30, 2021

Mother of the Light, may you reign as a Goddess of Wisdom within my soul.

Be present for me now and in every moment of eternity.

Take my hand and lead me to the Birthing Light of God within me,

for there shall I find my purpose in life revealed.

Mother, greet me at the door, embrace me in your loving countenance and smile gently upon me.

As your lost child, give me assurance that your grace is with me always.

All streams spring from the font of your heart.

Your eyes shine as the blue sea into my heart,

and you forever find me worthy of your love.

In the spirit of this revelation, I offer to reveal myself fully to you,

who is my Divine Feminine being, at all times and in all ways.

Amen.  💜Blessings c

You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.

Beware of Perfection by 
August 25, 2021

I believe being a perfectionist is overwhelming and hurts our self-esteem. I know, when I am writing an article, or sending a newsletter, I expect myself to write perfectly and if I make one mistake the self-judgement starts. I know that being a perfectionist means setting expectations for ourselves that we would never expect of anyone else. We would not be human if we didn't make a mistake once in a while. But the constant pressure we put on ourselves, and the ensuing belief that we will never be able to live up to our own standards, can become a vicious cycle.  So, how do we stop this vicious cycle?

First, accept where you are in this moment. If things start to feel like they’re spiraling out of control, get back in the moment and appreciate and acknowledge where you are now.

Second, acknowledge you are doing your best and that will help you gain confidence in yourself and improve your self-worth.

Third, know that nothing is important enough to ridicule yourself over.

Fourth, set your intention to do your best and silence the inner judge.

 

Most of all, it is important to remember that all humans make mistakes occasionally.💜Blessings c

Frequency of Faith
August 25, 2021

When we hold on to the frequency of faith, we can lift others up and attract goodness in every situation. No matter what is going on around us there are always lessons within every circumstance, even if we can't immediately identify them.

 

When stress, fear, or conflict threatens our peace of mind, remember that we have the power to choose whether or not to engage in this energy. We can be caring and supportive without taking part in this negative-thinking or fear-based behavior. By staying steady in our divine power, we can act as a calming influence.   💜Blessings c

Active Listening Skills
August 19, 2021

Active listening is an important skill that has value when interacting with others.  Practice this skill often and it will become easier for you as you intentionally engage with those around you.  I feel it is important to develop active listening skills and improve your conversational ability and support others in a healthy way.

 

When you find it hard to engage in active listening, consider whether there might be something getting in the way, such as feeling you need to fix things for them or a problem with inattention.   When you listen actively, you are fully engaged and immersed in what the other person is saying. 💜 Blessings c

This summer is a time of continuous change and personal growth and I hope you will all remember to access the wisdom of your innate knowing and listen to its guidance. Remember to feel your personal power and create from love.

 

I honor each of you for finding the courage within to follow a subtle sense of knowing. Stay present in the process of your inner attunement and enjoy the unique living artistry of your true self!

Honoring Divine Intention
August 2, 2021

Honoring our intuitive divine impulses is life-altering and has purposeful intention. Working with the energy of the Sacred Feminine is important in this moment for clear direction and pure insight.

 

Each of us can consciously choose to focus and continue the practice of honoring our innate feminine intuition. By doing so we will become more enlightened and will be a source of great light and healing to all on this planet. May all our hearts be opened and touched by her grace.  💜Blessings c

The Enlightenment  Prayer
July 28, 2021

Today I embrace my inner healing light. I call on the Christ frequency to enter all levels of my being, cleansing me in body, mind, and spirit. I ask the radiant vibration of unconditional love of God/Goddess to heal my heart of all pain and sorrow. I allow all that is for my highest good to return me to my authentic divine self. I reclaim my divinity so that I can share my loving heart with the world. So, it is done. 💜 Blessing c

Light Up Your Life
July 26, 2021

Light from any source, such as the Sun, infrared lights, or sunlamps are healing and beneficial to our body, mind, and spirit. Its illumination is spiritual and divine. Light is the source of goodness and cancels out darkness and is the main source of energy for all living organisms. Light is the essence of life itself. 💜Blessings c

Trust Life's Process
July 17, 2021

Trust life’s process by coming from a heart-centered intuitive consciousness. By connecting with Spirit, you are guided and supported in a conscious creation through discernment. Remember you create life as you go along while tracking your intentions.

 

Have a deep sense of trust in what cannot be seen, acknowledging that proof or evidence is not needed. Let your inner sense of knowing guide you. Simply be in the present to experience it.

The Way of Peace
July 14, 2021

The way of peace is to know our own soul recognizing that we are the infinite co-creator of our life. Life feels out of control when we rely on other people and outside influences.

 

As we all know knowledge is power. Nothing can take our power unless we allow it to. We must be willing to investigate, explore and change what is not working, without reacting from judgement and/or becoming paralyzed. I call that non-action. Then, once we have all the information we can take the proper action to create the desired outcome for the highest good.  💜Blessings c

When Life Throws You for a Loop
July 12, 2021

When life throws you for a loop and you are feeling overwhelmed and in a state of confusion, what do you do?

 

First step outside the situation and look at it as if you are the Director and remember the basics: good nutrition, sleep and, if possible, exercise. By distancing yourself from the frustration you can look for solutions and manage everything else.

 

Prioritize and compartmentalize your work problems and obligations from your personal at-home problems. Try writing the situation down then it is no longer in your head.

 

Don’t cut yourself off. If you are feeling down, it is easy to retreat inside ourselves. Surround yourself with family and friends and remind yourself life goes on. 

💜Blessings c

"Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?

Thou art more lovely and more temperate.

Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,

And summer's lease hath all too short a date.

Sometimes too hot the eye of heaven shines,

And often is his gold complexion dimmed;

And every fair from fair sometime declines,

By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimmed

But thy eternal summer shall not fade

Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,

Nor shall Death brag thou wand'rest in his shade

When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st.

So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,

So long lives this, and this gives life to thee."

"William Shakespeare"

A Healthy Summer

July 5, 2021

One of my favorite things to do in the summer is visit the Liberty Lake Farmer’s Market. Summertime is the best time to add more plant-based foods to your diet, because eating lots of fruit and vegetables can help prevent chronic disease. A diet rich in these foods can lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of heart disease, and lower the risk of eye and digestive problems. Diets enriched with veggies have positive effects upon blood sugar, which can help keep your appetite in check.

 

Get outside, enjoy summer, and support and shop your local farmer’s market for fresh in-season produce. 💜Blessings c

Enlightened 4th of July

July 3, 2021

Each year during the first week of July, a sacred gateway opens up a heightened frequency of pure energy.  During this energetic acceleration between the shining star Sirius, “Spiritual Sun”, and our own Earth’s star “Sun” a portal is created. When connected, through meditation, it will inspire those individuals to spiritually advance in consciousness.

 

Why does star Sirius do that?  The energy of Sirius, shines 23 times stronger than our own Sun. By tapping into this divine portal, you can create anything that you need to be whole. This frequency of pure energy is 23 times more accelerated in divine intention as we are being guided to spiritually awaken. Many indigenous cultures also teach that Sirius was the portal to heaven, and by meditating on the gateway humans will open their hearts to become more enlightened. 

Happy 4th of July. 💜Blessings c

Reflections by Rosie Flower

Follow Your Heart

June 27, 2021

I know we are all trying to do our best in this ever-changing world. Everything is spinning so fast sometimes that we can’t catch our breath. The things that I know for sure, are that we need to follow our hearts and we must make life work for us and not work for life.

In my practice, I teach this concept over and over. Because in my heart I believe it is such a true statement. When we work for life, everything feels out of control, and we are easily exhausted. I know, for me, when I get up every morning I ask Spirit to guide me with intention  that my life will work for me in a peaceful loving way. Life works in miraculous ways if we allow it. Follow your heart

Trapped by Your Ego

June 26, 2021

Does your ego have you trapped in fear? When you are dealing with life’s problems—health issues, financial problems, relationships, or even lesser daily worries, that is when the ego steps in and puts you in a tailspin. How can you avoid this spiritual war with the cruel side of your ego?

 

Don’t give it any more energy than necessary to show you how cruel it can be. No one can torment you more than your own mind. You can “hit pause” and listen to another voice inside … the voice of the Divine Spirit. That voice is the wise one and can take what the mean ego would use to break you and help you begin to heal.

 

Much of what your ego says is a lie. We see our existence and our own experiences through our own lens (our own movie). If you are battling this side of your ego, practice some of the following to take back your power that has been stolen from you.

 

The first thing I do when faced with my own mean little ego is that I ask myself if it’s true. When I realize the egos’, words are lies, I simply tell it to be silent and leave me alone. Don’t be afraid to tell it who’s in charge, act on it, and guard yourself. Because that little ego made of darkness and lies only has power over us when and if we allow it to.

 

Try the following to silence your cruel ego: Ask if it is true; tell your ego to be silent and leave you alone; talk to God/Spirit; meditate and focus on self-care; use positive affirmations; and most importantly love yourself. This is how healing works.

 

And always remember that when you get to the bottom of the truest version that it is not your fault. Sometimes the voice inside you is nothing but that mean little ego.

Connecting to Your Dreams

It is a good time to connect to your dreams and interpret them.

The Way of Love

June 7, 2021

The most sacred path we can take is one of love. When our intention of love comes from the heart, and joins with divine right action, we will manifest more love. When we seek love not just for ourselves, and show compassionate love for all, our needs will be abundantly met. I believe that the path of love is truly abundant.  💜 Blessings c

May you be wrapped safely in the comforting healing energy of Archangel Raphael's wings.

Exploring Self

June 2, 2021

I have lived my life exploring what it means to be spiritually authentic to myself and others. I focus on authenticity especially in the way I live in each moment. I realize what makes me unique and being proud to be just that. I choose not to follow trends or to compare myself to others. I don't let myself  worry about the drama that is swirling around me. Staying centered allows me to be authentically myself. 

💜Blessings c

 

Go With the Flow

May 29, 2021

Today, May 29 at 6:33 p.m. ET, Mercury went retrograde. Mercury retrograde can be an incredibly interesting and even empowering experience if you work with its energy instead of fearing it or working against it.

 

This energy is inspired by the knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and flexible Gemini. The motto for this cycle is just go with the flow. These next few weeks the energy will inspire you to rethink the way you use your mind and remain open to new ideas. That means relinquishing your need for things to go smoothly and according to plan.

 

Easier said than done, I know. This period is the perfect time to time to slow down, reflect on the moment, and reorganize your life. Mercury always rules over communication, the mind and how you process information. 💜Blessings c

 

Get Creative

May 26, 2021

Come up with some ways to bring compassion, kindness, and generosity into your life. By showing compassion you will be fulfilled and connected to others. Being kind to others builds their self-esteem and rewards you. Generosity comes from the heart and is a quality like honesty and patience and is beneficial to both the giver and receiver.   💜Blessings c


Live Life to the Fullest

May 25, 2021

Spend more time today doing things just because you love to do them. Let the joy of life fill you up. By finding your joy you will inspire those around you. 

 

How do you get more enjoyment in your life?  By allowing your inner child to be playful and have fun.  Make each day count.   💜Blessings c

 

She Is

May 24, 2021

She is a breath of power, a pure fusion of glory, a reflection of eternal light, a spotless mirror of goodness. She is one, but she can do all things. She remains herself but renews all things. Each generation she creates profits in the holy ones, for she is more beautiful than the sun or the stars, mightier than the earth itself, and she orders all things well… Wisdom of Solomon

 

My interpretation is that in many religions it is the Goddess that establishes order out of chaos. We enact a part of the cosmic goddess when we, too, make order from the complexity of our lives. Like her, we find the patterns within our activities that reveal our inner purpose to create balance. We can refine each day so that our divine purpose is made clear and then while making positive changes, we embody the cosmic feminine and all her forms. 💜Blessings c

 

Be an Infinite Creator

May 21, 2021

We are infinite direct creators of our thoughts and intentions. In making that statement, we must first claim our creative power. Creating healthfully depends on our level of consciousness in each moment.

 

We must be super attentive to whether we are coming from spirit or superficial energies generated by the lower personality, a yearning for outside approval, or fear of success or failure, and the desire to win at all costs.

 

To be a boundless conscious creator we must practice tapping into our higher heart and the clearest realms of celestial mind and divine energy. This energy is at the highest level of super- consciousness, where all Universal, God, or spirit energy permeates. Once aligned we can create effortlessly and experience the synchronicity self-actualization of all our desires. 💜Blessings c

 

Moody Planet Influence

May 18, 2021

Today is a day to look after ourselves because according to the alignment of the planets, we will not have as much energy as usual. Our forward thinking is likely to feel challenged with much review, and soul searching. When our minds are not burdened by worries, fears, or failure, we can move forward toward new and different perceptions and actions.

 

So today would be a great day to focus on gratitude, journal our thoughts, and take a little timeout from our busy day, re-energize and rest. We can use this energy to move forward with plans for a better future.  💜 Blessings c

Relationships

May 15, 2021

I was pondering these questions this morning. Are there relationships in your life that nurture you and raise your vibration? Who in your life challenges you to explore yourself so that you can become whole? Of all your relationships who inspires you to feel balanced and clear about who you are?

 

What I am asking is that when your energy meets the energy of others, and inspires you, do you feel amazing? It is important to surround yourself with others who vibrate unconditional love and acceptance. By finding someone that you share a spiritual connection with, it will be an effortless true union of divine support. You will be nourished with encouragement and respect throughout this sacred relationship.  

💜Blessings c.

Happy Mother’s Day

May 9, 2021

Mother’s Day is the special time of year when we celebrate our best friend -- be that your mother, grandmothers, aunts, or any other mother figure in your life. It is a day to let each of them know how special you think they are and show your love.

 

Our moms are our superheroes and biggest supporters, but we usually don’t tell them enough how much they’re appreciated. On this special day, tell your mom (or other special ladies) how much they mean to you. 💜Blessings c

Synchronicity

May 7, 2021

We all have the power to bring synchronicity into our lives. Synchronicity is defined as the simultaneous occurrence of events which appear significantly related but have no discernible causal connection.

 

I've yet to find anything as satisfying as being inspired; it's what gives my life meaning. It's a feeling that wants to shout, "This is who I am and why I'm here!”

 

Let yourself magically, symbolically, and metaphorically loosen up and release the boundaries of mundane living. Invite yourself to expand in ways you never dreamed of, tap into your true expansiveness, cultivating an openness to discover the synchronicity that is already inside you. 

💜Blessings c

 

Reclaiming Our Birthright

May 5, 2021

I am guided we are created worthy and it is our divine birthright. We do not have to earn it; it is who we are. What I am implying is that we are all born in God’s grace, his worthiness, and our own innate goodness is already programed in our DNA. This foundation gives us tremendous freedom and inner strength, but we must own it!

 

By honestly reclaiming our innate birthright and working on self-acceptance, and self-forgiveness as we nurture ourselves physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually we will remember our true identity.

 

I genuinely believe that through inner exploration, we can reach true wholeness and develop a loving/kind/balanced friendship with ourselves. We can then be present and accept ourselves unconditionally giving us an abundance of inner peace and strength. By creating a worthy and solid foundation we can begin to love ourselves truly and deeply.  💜Blessings c

 

Attracting Abundance - Higher Consciousness​

May 4, 2021

Embracing and Creating Change Through Soul’s Wisdom – Conscious Manifestation

 

The energy at this time, is the perfect time to develop a higher consciousness to attract the grace-filled abundance of life's empowering opportunities. There is nothing to hold you back if you make small changes in your life and enter in alignment with the wisdom of your soul.

 

The soul is a lifeline, your greatest resource and healer. It has no agendas; it’s there for unconditional support and love. Intend that life flows in alignment with what you manifest. Also, that attracting all that is for your highest good is fun, and that you don’t have to work so hard to get what you want. More importantly your divine essence will shine through and you will feel good about your creation. Practice embodying more love, gratitude, and awareness from a higher-level frequency of creation. Love and abundance are the language of the soul. 

💜Blessings c

 

Cut Yourself Some Slack

April 30, 2021

Inspire self and the divine will inspire you to create magically.  If you cut yourself some slack and stop demanding a perfect performance, life will become much more relaxing. 

 

This doesn’t mean letting everything fall apart. You will get things done, but without the added pressure of perfectionism.  Be gentle with yourself and life will be gentle with you.   💜Blessings c

 

Enlightened Life

April 29, 2021

I know for me my whole focus is to create a more meaningful life, one filled with the sense of purpose, energy and vitality that reflects my true health and well-being. I believe that the mind/body/soul connection reminds each one of our unique talents and inspires us to be in gratitude for who we are as we channel our physical energy into soulful pursuits. By taking this action we will create a more enlightened life.

Pink Super Moon

April 26, 2021

The moon will be a little "pink" tonight.

 

“The first super moon of the year will arrive around 11:33 p.m. ET, according to the Farmers' Almanac."    

 

This pink super moon will be the biggest and brightest moon of the month and will happen tonight, April 26, ushering in a moment of inner reflection.  On the evening of the pink super moon, its gravitational pull will be felt emotionally in many ways. Feelings will be heightened, and all our truths will be revealed. The desire to be our authentic self and clear all that is blocking us will be a true blessing, which is essential to our personal growth. Be prepared to grow and shine!   

💜Blessings c

 

Love Heals

April 23, 2021

I believe when we allow ourselves to be spiritually supported, we can handle our life in a more loving way, which serves the highest divine purpose. By believing in the highest divine purpose our self-love increases so that we can love others as well.

 

I feel love overcomes pain and negativity and opens our hearts and minds to the full experience of  life's mysteries and gifts. As love heals, and powers awaken, we are inspired to show compassion and wisdom (the ability to know what is true and right). Everything we do benefits from divine love. 💜Blessings c

 

Excited About Moving

April 22, 2021

I am excited to share with you that I am completely moved into my new office in the Liberty Lake Portal. Besides my office and therapy room, I will have access to workshop and conference rooms.

 

In the future I am looking forward to having an open house, teaching workshops, giving lectures, and having a Sacred Art Photography Exhibit.

 

This change in surroundings will be an improvement for both my clients and myself, and by doing so everyone will benefit holistically and spiritually.  💜 Blessings c

 

The Walk

April 17, 2021

In what ways are you currently preventing yourself from activating your power to manifest?

 

On your journey, as you walk your path towards your most authentic and sacred self, remember with awareness that you have the ability to manifest the reality that you wish to create. By speaking your intentions, foreseeing the reality, and giving thanks you can fine tune your own frequency. Make it a practice of feeling the energetic vibrations around you and “walk the walk”. 💜 Blessings c  

 

 

Be Free Energetically

April 15, 2021

The energies in the next few days will free us up to create a new energetically inspired way to move through our connection with others and the world.

 

What if we decided to revolutionize our lives physically, financially and/or spiritually? This light energy is the perfect time to develop a better insight into our own character and will help us decide on a clearer path to follow in our everyday lives. We should use this opportunity to understand ourselves better in order to resolve issues that are blocking our energies. 💜 Blessings c

Spiritual and Physical Hygiene

April 10, 2021

 

We all must take the time to recognize the negative clutter, the pain, and the sadness from our body, mind, and spirit! How do we do that? We need to become more aware of, and take inventory of, what we are feeling, sensing, and thinking about. The key is to make life work for us, not to work for our life. So, ask yourself: Who or what are you giving your energy to? What is the significance of the life you are leading? Are you honoring self by taking the time to care about what is happening around and inside you?  💜 Blessings c

 

Spring has Sprung

April 7, 2021

Springtime is the perfect season for positive change and inner growth. Set some positive habits in motion for the remainder of the year. You can fuel your mind and body with rejuvenated energy by embracing the new life of spring.

 

Set new goals and intentions to revive your holistic health habits. Begin your inner spring-cleaning, by focusing on your mindset. Look forward to finishing goals and be proactive.

 

Go outside and enjoy the sunshine. Physical activity is necessary to stimulate positive changes in the body. The fresh air will make you will feel energized and will have a positive effect, opening your mind to new thoughts and ideas.

 

By setting new goals, and being physically active, you can revitalize your holistic habits this spring and feel like your best self. Like flowers blooming, you will also feel inner growth. 💜 Blessings c

 

Higher Guidance

April 6, 2021

As we become more attuned to higher guidance and wisdom, we will understand what we need in each and every moment of our lives. This understanding can release pain and/or symptoms and bring balance into our lives.

 

Only when we are willing to dig deep, surrender and cleanse what no longer serves us, can we create a life that flows seamlessly. This translates into new Christ light and frequency, bringing us joy, hope and blessings. 💜 Blessings, c

Overcoming Resistance

March 29, 2021​

I believe that when moving forward, resistance cannot flourish when gratitude, grace and creativity are present in our conscious minds. It is always easier to trust and be spiritual when life is uncomplicated, and it can be difficult when life is challenging. I am guided that by inviting the higher vibrations of love and light, from the Universe into our lives, divine grace becomes our true path.

A Moment in Time

​March 24, 2021

FIRST DAY of SPRING 2021 

March 20, 2021

The term equinox comes from the Latin word "equinoxium," meaning "equality between day and night", and vernal also comes from Latin and means spring.  The Spring Equinox celebrates the start of renewal which energetically offers signs of a return to normalcy.  Rebirth and renewal are the energies spring represent as they bring more light into our lives. In spring, the world opens up and begins anew. This means it's time for us to come out of our hibernation and inspires us to play, laugh, and celebrate the light. We have been working hard all winter long and are in need of a sunshine break. 

Let us make "rebirthing  into our best selves" the theme of the next three months.

True Connections

March 15, 2021

I feel we live in an amazing world, a bit chaotic but interesting at the same time. However, one thing I know for sure is we are connected on a Soul level with our spiritual family.

 

Recently I was thinking about someone and during a later conversation with them they told me they had shared with a friend their experience of working with me. This is a true connection.

 

I honestly believe that our Divine Souls have pure loving intentions. There is no taking from another on this level, and it is only about sharing a space of love and light.

 

To connect with another person, with the intention of sharing love, means that a Divine miracle is happening. We all are enriched and nourished by what we share on a Soul level. Sharing love has no hidden agenda and therefore nothing is expected from one another. I believe the Soul desires to collaborate, connect and inspire others. By being conscious of our true connections, and understand that they are divine not random, we can embrace each other and flourish.    💜 Blessings, c

 

Heart Chakra -  Anāhata

March 14, 2021

The 4th Chakra, or Heart Chakra in Sanskrit is Anāhata, and in English “unbeaten”. It is located at the lower center of the spine at heart level. Its main color is green, and it is most associated with the air element.

 

The 4th Chakra is all about love and the flow and exchange of emotional sharing between us and others. It serves as our center of love for oneself and others, compassion, empathy, and forgiveness.  If the 4th Chakra becomes blocked, you may find it hard to develop and keep healthy relationships. Practice these simple steps to bring the heart chakra into balance.

 

• Practice gratitude. Journal what you feel grateful for.

• Practice a loving kindness meditation.

• Use rose quartz and other heart opening crystals.

 

When the heart chakra is in healthy alignment you will feel surrounded by love  and joy and connected to the world around you.   

💜 Blessings, c

 

Practicing Self Care

March 11, 2021

Practicing self-care doesn’t have to be difficult or take a lot of time   It is important that each of us devote energy to physical self-care. Taking care of ourselves both physically and mentally is an important part of overall wellness, especially in today's busy world. However, many people view self-care as a luxury, rather than a priority.

 

I believe that self-care is any conscious activity that supports and aids in the process of personal development, including my emotional, physical, and spiritual wellbeing. By living with the intention that each day I matter,  I  then understand that if I am unhealthy the energy that supports me will make me feel off center. By practicing self-compassion and care, I am inspired to live a healthy balanced life. 💜Blessings c

Today, March 8th, is International Women's Day. It is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. Worldwide groups come together to celebrate women's achievements or rally for women's equality.

 

 

The theme for International Women's Day 2021 is “Choose to Challenge”. A challenged world is a conscious world, and from challenge comes change. Purple, green and white are the colors of International Women's Day.

Solar Plexus Chakra - Manipura

March 5, 2021

The Solar Plexus Chakra (third chakra) represents your source of personal power;  helping guide you to your own authentic identity. This is the center of self-esteem, self-discipline, and empowerment. When this energy is flowing naturally and openly you experience an honest perception of who you are.

 

The color yellow helps you stand in your true power. Citrine, Tiger Eye, Yellow Calcite, Golden Quartz, and Pyrite are healing stones that support this chakra.

 

By empowering the solar plexus chakra, we are able to be confident in our individuality.

Path of Harmony 

March 1, 2021

 

Now is the time to follow the path of harmony. You are being asked to let yourself “flow” into a space that you know is true. Ignite your imagination and spontaneously guide yourself to be encompassed in your own natural spiritual rhythm.

 

It is essential to flow with another kindred spirit without losing yourself. Allow the universe to work through you providing direction for peace and happiness. By practicing this, nothing can get in the way of being you. Follow your path and relish the moment. 💜Blessings c

Cheryl you will live in all our hearts forever. See you in my dreams. 💜Blessings c

I choose to believe in me.

As I proceed down my individual path, I will also matter.

I will become healthier, happier and closer to the Divine.

I choose to mature spiritually.

I will consciously and deliberately support and manifest the true desires of my heart.

I will live my life in harmony and listen to my voice.

As I come to know myself better, I will express gratitude for who I am.

I choose to love all, including myself, with compassion, understanding and respect.

I am healthy, strong and balanced...so I can be there for others and live in

a state of grace. Amen

Cycle of Change

February 15, 2021

There is an infinite amount of trans-formative energy moving into our lives...which is the constant cycle of change. This energy can feel a bit uncomfortable if we are not willing to put ourselves first. However, if we pay attention to Self this energy will allow us to create new ideas and live to our highest potential. I believe, "We are our Divine Creation”. The intentions we set forth, form new thoughts and ideas that create the outcome of each moment. When we choose to create from divine guidance; what we generate is shaped from our inner radiance and beauty. Remember life is multi-faceted, and with the right intentions we can find an even greater richness to create a peace-filled life. Let’s move towards achieving our spiritual state of flow by continually working towards an optimum state of health. I am choosing to follow this path myself.💜 Blessings, c

Sacral Chakra

February 9, 2021

Sacral Chakra -Swadisthana

The sacral chakra (known as the second chakra) is located two inches below our belly button and is characterized by the color orange and oversees our emotional body, creativity, sexuality, and individualism. The sacral chakra aligns our circulatory systems, lymphatic and reproductive organs, bladder, kidney, and large intestines. It is about our connection with nature and the biological rhythm of day and night.

 

How to Balance

The mantra sound that corresponds to the sacral chakra of “I Feel Alive” is VAM (“vammmmm”). Crystals that are perfect for supporting the sacral chakra, include amber, citrine, orange calcite, orange aventurine, carnelian, and hematite. Carry these crystals in your pocket or purse to balance and align this chakra  When balanced you will feel creative, productive and joy filled. 💜 Blessings, c 

 

Letting Go

February 7, 2021

 For the next few weeks, it is time to let go of the stories that we have lived. Go into the pain and explore it, and write it, and let it go once and for all. Then, and only then can you activate this new 5th Dimensional consciousness and fall into your divine nature, setting yourself free. 💜 Blessings c

 

Base Chakra

February 4, 2021

Located at the base of the spine, the pelvic floor, and the first three vertebrae, the root chakra is responsible for a sense of safety and security on this physical journey. The word Muladhara breaks down into two Sanskrit words: Mula meaning “root” and Adhara, which means “support” or “base".  The mantra sound that corresponds to the root chakra is LAM.

 

This seventh chakra deals with the physical body and its energies deal with healing and aligning all organs of the body to work in unison. It is important to balance the root chakra to have a solid foundation which energetically supports all the other chakras. Imagine laying a foundation for a building. The root chakra grounds humans to be balanced in their everyday lives. This includes basic needs such as food, water, shelter, peace and safety. It also supports emotional needs such as letting go of fear and being safe in the world.

How to Balance

 

The root chakra’s color is red. Wearing red clothing and accessories can help bring a chakra in balance. Working with crystals such as garnet, red jasper, and black tourmaline will also help open the first chakra.  You can place a stone on the area above the pelvic bone while lying down to align and open the energy flow. Chanting the mantra sound LAM (“lammmmm…”) or toning sounds can also help bring the root chakra back in balance. Sounds create vibrations in the body, and these vibrations help the cells work together in synchronistic harmony.

What an exciting way to begin this year with the Full Wolf Moon on January 28, 2021. This full moon is in Leo.  Go outside tonight and howl at the moon. The full moon will reach its peak tonight at 11:16 pm (Pacific time).

 

The full moon is a time of great power, and the perfect night for a spiritual card reading, as it is a night where energy is in ultimate abundance for creating changes. This moon is a great time to take a snapshot of your life and see where you are and where you need to be going on your personal path.  💜Blessings c

Appreciation of Mother Earth

January 28, 2021

 

Moment by moment, our divine presence is being called to awaken in a healthier, more meaningful way. This call is to awaken our conscious loving heart, our loving light planted in the ground like a seed, nourishing the Earth's grid with unconditional love. With our heads bowed towards the Earth, humble in our appreciation for her, offering the purest potential from our heart to manifest healing for Mother Earth and her inhabitants.  💜Blessing c

A Positive Brain

January 25, 2021

As most of us understand, what we see in the world reflects how we feel inside. Our brains are literally creating our experiences moment by moment.  Scientists say our prefrontal cortex, the newest part of our brains, deals with thoughts and relays information to our mammalian cortex which creates emotions. These emotions inform the brain how we feel and experience love or pain. This is proof that a positive attitude is not just a metaphor, it’s a physiological fact.  Being positive creates joy and happiness.  💜Blessings c

 

 

 

Highest Intention

January 21, 2021

I feel it is time for each of us, me included, to focus on our highest goals. It is the time, through divine intention, to create real transformation as we go through our day-to-day life. I have been shown that we have the infinite options and breathing space to move forward with our plans and activities once again. If are like me, I have lots of energy bursting at the seams and am ready to create positive changes and step into my creative expression of joy.  💜Blessings c

 

 

Hope

January 18, 2021

 

The definition of hope is a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen. We all want to make our lives better in some way. Hope is part of our everyday lives; we all hope for something. It can help us through some difficult times and can improve our lives by motivating us to make things happen.

 

Hope is part of being a human being and helps define us. It is part of our life story we all have running inside our heads.

Bring hope into your life by always looking on the bright side, see challenges as opportunities and always “hope for the best".  💜 Blessings c

Unite and Restore

January 12, 2020

My thoughts about the emotional uneasiness that we have all experienced the past days, weeks, and months have left some of us feeling exhausted and weary. As humans our love, or ego driven fears, influence all humanity’s collective conscious decisions.

 

In order to heal our emotional uneasiness, we must center ourselves in our divine truth. As individuals, by holding the space of love, we can peacefully bring positive changes to the world.

 

Trusting Spirit will help us heal, unite, and restore balance. As we enter Divine grace, we have the power to create a better world. The best way to define the future is to help create it. 💜Blessings c

From the centre where the Will of God is known

Let purpose guide the little wills of men –

The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

From the centre which we call the race of men

Let the Plan of Love and Light work out

And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.

Be proud of who you are and the experiences that have shaped you. No matter what is going on you are powerful enough to get through it. This makes you stronger. Life experiences will challenge you to handle anything that comes your way and inspires you to achieve personal growth. 

 

I believe as we overcome the obstacles that keep us stuck, our hearts open up to receive the divine truth of who we are spiritually.

Slow Down

January 4, 2021

What is within us that prevents us from finding peace in each moment? Why am I still holding on to it; whatever it is.

 

I affirm that I am choosing to release this illusion and be fully present in each moment regardless of outside circumstances.      

 

Slow down my expectations of self!          💜 Blessings c

and believe that whatever it is,

you will be okay.

Happy New Year

December 31, 2020

The last few days I have been reflecting on the close of this past year. I reminded myself that I don't have to be infallible or perfect. I need to be genuine and no matter the circumstances to love myself unconditionally. May this new year bring out the best in you as you stay true to yourself.  💜Blessings c

 

Moments of Insight

December 28, 2020

As we move into the New Year let your divine insights speak to you about all things that affect your life.   As your intuitive conscious mind sharpens and becomes clearer the more you can create harmony within your true self and other light-hearted people who support you on your journey.  💜Blessings c

Coherence of Love

December 8, 2020

In the next few weeks as we connect with friends, family, partners, and neighbors lets focus on the happy moments.  I believe that living in harmony is so important. When we live in the coherence of love, we can find gratitude in every little moment and celebrate the positive. 💜Blessings  c

Brighten Your Holidays

December 4, 2020

Brighten the holiday season by making your health and safety a top priority. Strive to keep you and your loved ones happy, content, and engaged, while celebrating family traditions. Even though we are limited to staying at home make a conscious effort to be centered and in gratitude. 💜Blessings c

 

Being Joyful 

December 3, 2020

True joy comes from appreciating the small things in life. It is a feeling to live with intent and that we give ourselves permission to be joyful. Happiness is achieved when we choose to live and enjoy where we are right now.  Practice joyful intent with each action, with each thought, and with each word.  💜Blessings c

 

Generate Kindness

November 30, 2020

The holiday season is the perfect time to focus on being kind. Start noticing kindness all around you. Start a pleasant conversation with someone, say hello, or just give a wave. Kindness is contagious and little acts of generosity can brighten everyone's day. When we pay kindness forward it comes back to us then-fold.  💜Blessings c

Inner Space

​November 18, 2020

Empowering our inner space involves becoming the watcher, or the witness to our thoughts, and that develops a deeper sense of stillness. Through focus we come to understand this deeper space of goodness within. It becomes easier to let go of "fear" and lets our love-based thoughts guide us. Being able to move into this internal space of now is how we can hold the space of our true nature, which is love.

Spirituality Expression

November 16, 2020

When most of us think of spirituality, we think of something that might be summarized in a picture of looking towards the heavens with folded hands, a soulful expression, and an adoring heart. We think of people reading spiritual books for their inspiration and to some degree for their education and developing greater morality.

 

However, as it turns out, spirituality can be understood as simply the next step of human evolution—the next step of human maturity. This means anything you do that makes you stronger, healthier, more mature, of greater character, wiser, etc. is progress towards spiritual knowledge. Anything that expands your knowledge of the universe and how it works is spiritual knowledge. Anything that helps you determine the best course for your life is spiritual knowledge.  💜Blessings c

A Healthy Habit

November 9, 2020

Create a healthy habit by starting your day chugging warm or hot water which will help cool and heal your digestion. You can also add some ginger, a slice of lemon, or a cinnamon stick; however, the warmth of the water is the best medicine in the morning for your digestion.  

💜Blessings c

 

Answers

November 8, 2020

We all want the answers. Whether it is on a national level (decisions that affect the population), or on a local level (affecting your town or neighborhood), or on a personal level (waiting for a doctor’s report) we want the answers right now.

 

Since that does not always happen the way we want it to, what can we do when we are faced with these challenges. It’s quite simple. Shift your focus, remain positive, stay calm and centered. In the end you will be able to accomplish all that you need to during these disconcerting times.

Weekend Retreat

November 6, 2020

 

Happy Friday! I can’t believe the weekend is here already. I just returned from Quinn’s Hot Springs in Montana where I took a well-rested retreat. It is a place where the mineral hot springs are incredibly healing and soothing for me.

 

I know sometimes as an empath I wish I could switch off my sensitivity; or turn down the volume for one blessed minute. Spending time at the hot springs helps me detach from feeling everything so deeply, at least for a short while. It has taken a long time for me to honor my sensitivity. However, I believe as an empath, and a sensitive soul, I’m going to feel what I feel regardless. It is pointless for me to deny who I am, so instead I do my best to embrace my gifts and my sensitive nature and take care of myself.

 

The stresses of election week are real and can take a toll on an empath’s nervous system. I know I sound like a broken record, but we must stay out of the movie and stay centered in the knowledge that whatever happens is for the highest good of all concerned. We are the healers, the artists, and the dreamers. We must hold the space of love and light for all. This is who we are.

 

When I remember that my sensitivity is a blessing and embrace the gifts of being an empath, I soften and expand into my highest potential; and I know you can to.

An Irish Halloween blessing:

At all Hallow's Tide, may Spirit keep you safe

From goblin and pooka and black-hearted stranger,

From harm of the water and hurt of the fire,

From thorns of the bramble, from all other danger,

From Will O' The Wisp haunting the mire;

From stumbles and tumbles and tricksters to vex you,

May Divine in her mercy, on All Hallows' Eve protect you. 💜Blessings c

Beyond Illusion

October 30, 2020

Today I open my heart wide to receive the grace of God and not be pulled into the fears and illusions that surround me. I ask that all God’s children focus on light and love. In the next few weeks may we all hold the energy for the highest good of all concerned with harm to no one. I see, sense, and feel God’s healing power of peace penetrating into everyone at this momentous time.  So, it is done.   💜Blessings c

 

 

Being Peaceful

October 28, 2020

It is up to us to be peaceful. Life is always filled with distractions; that is a given. We can focus on what is good or what is wrong in any situation. What if we make a commitment to ourselves to not react to every little bump in the road? When we have peace within, we embrace ourselves and each other in grace.  💜Blessings c

 

Shifting Gears

October 27, 2020

In the next few weeks let's keep our chin up and hold the course for goodness. Learn to rise above the chaos as it presents itself.  In doing so, we protect our mental well-being.  Mental well-being is about how we think, feel, and how we cope with the ups and downs in our everyday lives. We must realize that in the end life always has a way of working itself out.  If we stay the course, we will thrive. 💜Blessings c

Mary Magdalene

October 22, 2020

Mary Magdalene’s energy is emerging, and it is bringing the mystical feminine Christ Consciousness to all Lightworkers. She empowers us in the form of feminine spiritual leadership. This leadership is accessible to both men and women in the sacred marriage of Divine Union within each of us. Mary speaks through many of us and the message is always one of love and encouragement. Her teaching is about our unique experience as spirits holding the space of light for all. As humanity stands at a crossroad, during this fragile period, it is time to make the infinite choice of either fear or love. 💜Blessings c

 

Heaven on Earth  

October 18, 2020

We can choose heaven to be our reality right now in this moment now that we have thrown out much of the old negative vibrational patterns and emitted the parts of ourselves that no longer serve us.  We are ready to live our true divine purpose as we integrate and align the higher vibrating reality.  We are moving forward into the new universal creation of heaven on earth. This is what some call the "New Earth". Those of us that are ready will become more fully ingrained within this calmer universal reality. Therefore, creating our heaven on earth. 💜Blessings c

 

Divine Wisdom

October 13, 2020

The Divine Self is always trying to get our attention to remind us of the power, love, and wisdom that draws in higher energies, thoughts, feelings, and situations into our lives.  The Divine Wisdom within us is wise; it knows all that is for our highest good, and is always showing us a better and more joyful way to live our lives. I believe that we can easily turn away from the distractions of the physical world, and restore ourselves into the light, love, and power of this loving energy. 💜Blessings c

Forgiveness

Forgiveness is the most powerful thing you can do for yourself on the spiritual path. If you can’t learn to forgive, you can forget about getting to higher levels of awareness.  Affirm: I forgive everyone, including myself.   Dr. Wayne Dwyer

Magic Exists

October 5, 2020

Since I was a small child, I have always known there was magic. I still truly believe that somehow, somewhere magic exists in the form of positive  intention.  By using creative visualization, from a place of love, you can create anything you desire.  First, you must relax and imagine a desired goal in your mind exactly the way you want it to be. Then, listen to your inner "self" and you will be guided to take the perfect steps in creating your desired outcome. When you do that, through love, all that you aspire will come quickly and in unexpected ways.  💜Blessings c

 

Empowered vs Powerless

October 3, 2020

When we hold on to the belief that life is something that happens to us and all we can do is make the best of it --that is a passive way to not take responsibility for the life we have created. When we give our power to people or things we suffer needlessly.

 

I teach we must take responsibility for how our life is unfolding good or bad. I believe that through positive intentions, we can create life the way we want it to be.  I also teach that if we follow our divine inner guidance, life gets better and better.  

 

What if every day we used a creative visualization seeing life in perfect harmony and balance? 

💜Blessings c

 

Attitude of Gratitude

October 1, 2020​

An attitude of gratitude means that you come from a place of appreciation for life instead of one of negativity.  We always have a choice to be grateful, and give thanks for everything and everyone in our lives. Even on the days when it feels like nothing is going right we can make a conscious effort to express appreciation for what we have right now in this moment.  I believe that gratitude allows us to get rid of the negativity in our lives. Only then, does the Universe listen and respond in a loving and abundant way.   💜Blessings c

Choices

“I believe that we are solely responsible for our choices, and we have to accept the consequences of every deed, word, and thought throughout our lifetime.” —Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

“Autumn’s grain is spring’s seed: paradox surrounds us with ripening wisdom. If we lose hope, remember that Hope has two daughters to support our balancing acts: Anger and Courage. Instead of passive hope, embrace radical willingness. -excerpt by Oak Chezar © Mother Tongue Ink 2019 

Silent Walks

September 20, 2020

“Alone or with others, you can seek clarity within the circle of your deepest purpose, you cross the threshold of the old and open to the mystery calling you to new life.” CLB

 

Today, I will focus more on silence and emptiness. Be quieter than usual. Notice and appreciate other people and my surroundings without having to define them, either mentally or out loud. When I do speak, I will be aware of the intent behind my words.

 

I will take silent walks from time to time with a different focus. I will walk in the moment noticing the space in between the objects, the space that allows everything to be.  I will let the habitual focus on self-relax and dissolve, expanding until I feel “self” as a natural extension of the spirit that flows through all things —simply, slowly, deeply.  💜Blessings c

 

The True Healing Process

September 18, 2020

I believe that the true healing process many of us are undergoing is one of re-aligning oneself to optimal well-being. Through our spiritual wisdom, inspired by self-acceptance and unconditional love, we can then feel the essence of wholeness and be healthy.  As a result we are accessing our innate wisdom, truly feeling our connection to God’s unconditional love.  When we love ourselves, our unique vibration becomes elevated and in doing so, our conscious perceptions of what is good becomes heightened.

 

I call this journey the essential path of empowering self as a conscious creator. Healing is simply another word, or mindset, for creating a conscious positive outcome. We can create these disease conditions for ourselves, whether consciously or unconsciously. We can also re-create new, healthy conditions by re-aligning our energies in positive ways that express a healthier version of self. Through self-knowledge, self- exploration and understanding we choose to participate in our health decisions.  💜Blessings c

Communication

September 10, 2020

How can we healthfully communicate with each other these days when there are so many changes going on in our daily lives.

 

I am guided that we must channel our thoughts in order to have clear communication every moment. This is required from the navigation system of the heart’s wisdom. Let that wisdom lead the way as we navigate through the day. 

 

We all deserve to live life peacefully and enjoy riding the wave of contentment.  💜Blessings c

 

The Divine Feminine in Each of Us

August 4, 2020

She is the energy of nurturing to give us spiritual inspiration. Who is she?

 

She is a strong, powerful, loving, force that lives in everything. She inspires divine trust and to have faith. She patiently observes everything around her creation. Divine Feminine is the one that follows the path of her unique freedom to create from within.

 

We all embody this energy male and female. It is magnetic and allows us to attract everything we want. By simply tapping into her knowing of co-creation and manifestation we can empower our lives.

 

She can be the essence of innocence, purity, strength, intuition, and faith. Simply being allows the universe to support her on the divine journey.

 

Within her light there is no energy of neediness, fear, desperation, or what we know to be lacking, only light-filled creation.

 

When we choose to connect into her energy of receiving, allowing, trusting, serving, and giving, we will make room to breathe, receive, regenerate, and manifest our lives in unconditional light and love.   💜Blessings c​

An Interesting World We Live In

August 28, 2020

What an interesting time we live in and we know this without a doubt that we live in a different world. Think of 2019 in comparison to 2020. How different our reality is when it comes to our everyday lives and humanity as a whole. This shift in conscience is giving everyone the opportunity to choose respect and integrity as we manifest a better life and world. Now is the time for all truths to be revealed and we can choose who or what to believe. Or we can choose to stay neutral holding the space for everyone’s highest good. I pray that all of us see the value of life in a new and conscientious way.  💜Blessings c

 

Time to Take Action

August 27, 2020

Today we may be feeling especially ambitious and ready to break out of our old routines. Astrologically things are beginning to take off and turn a healthy corner. This is a time when we want to get something better going, even if we don’t know the next step or the exact direction we want to take.

 

 

By creating a sacred space that displays/intends what we want will bring it to life. What we focus on expands. One thing we can do is create a vision board. Then, we can place it where we can see it often, reminding us to visualize it as already created and that we are catching up to it in Divine Timing.

 

Use these items to create positive vision board (pictures from magazines, pressed flowers, travel brochures, trinkets) that create a perfect life and world. Have fun with this by adding to and gathering new/additional items to create the vision board. Visualization is a powerful mindful exercise.  💜 Blessings c

Releasing Old Patterns

August 18, 2020

This is a great time to release old patterns and clear the way for a healthier you and intend to move beyond any negative patterns that keep you stuck. Now is the time to change all patterns that no longer serve you, to resonate in spiritual alignment with your divine truth.  Celebrate YOU!

 

Enjoy the rest of summer and the transitional process of being your authentic Self .  💜 Blessings c 

 

Sun Day - Fun Day

August 17, 2020

Yesterday we went to the lake and I relaxed. I realized how much I miss being totally in the moment. For one full day, no schedule, no phones, and no one wanting my time. Lately a proper day off from work seems few and far between even though I create my own schedule.  

 

We all deserve a day away from constant email notifications, appointments, and our bottomless to-do lists. It can seem nearly impossible to find ways to recharge on your day off.  I believe it's vital for you to do something for yourself, while you take time off to recharge your mind and soul. 

 

Rather than being stressed by trying to accomplish everything on your day off, make a commitment to yourself and others and enjoy the little moments in life.  💜Blessings c

NEUTRAL

August 12, 2020

 

These days I find it much easier to acknowledge I have a choice to respond to good or bad at any given moment. This way I am guided to look at everything in my life as a choice, instead of a series of events I have no control over. I do my best to remain neutral and react from that level.  I practice going back to zero-point (neutral) whenever I go into a negative mindset.  The more I practice and train myself to do this the easier it becomes to shift my frequency at will.  When events seem negative, I look at it as an opportunity that inspires me to be at peace.  💜Blessings c

Listening to Our Bodies

August 11, 2020​

 

I believe by raising our consciousness and paying attention to not only our bodies, but all levels (mind and spirit), it can take us to a new threshold of learning about ourselves. Rather than risking an emotional reaction to a situation, the body diverts the conscious reaction into a physical, unconscious one.

 

Paying attention to the subtle physical sensations in our bodies brings us more in touch with the fullness of our response to the world. While we are experiencing the world, at the same time we are witnessing ourselves experiencing the world. Once a sensation is identified, there is a choice to use this self-awareness to understand more deeply and thus respond to the situation with more presence. This is truly about being conscious in the present moment. Physical sensations in the body are clues from the subconscious to pay attention, to listen more carefully, and honor the wisdom of the body.

 

By increasing communication with our bodies, we lessen the split between the mind and body and are available to the wholeness of ourselves. We will then become more intimate with life and will realize our true reactions to the outside world. 💜 Blessing  c

Building Your Resilience Can Make You Stronger

August 7, 2020

I know life can be particularly stressful and the word resilience comes to mind. I believe that we all have a few of these days in our lifetime including everything from everyday challenges to traumatic life-altering events.

 

So, what does it mean to be resilient and how can we become empowered and “bounce back” when we are challenged? Life may not come with a map to guide us through these bumps in the road, but we can usually adapt well to life-changing, stressful situations-in part thanks to our divine resilience. There are many aspects of your life you can control, modify, and grow with. That is the role of resilience.

 

How can you increase your resiliency? Like building a muscle, increasing your resilience takes time and intentionality. Focus on three core components — connection, wellness, and healthy thinking.

Connections

 

Wellness

Take care of your body. Practicing self-care can promote mental and physical health and build your resilience. Live a positive lifestyle – good nutrition, sleep, hydration, and exercise can strengthen your body to adapt to stress. Practice mindfulness by journaling, yoga, and other spiritual practices which help build connections and restore hope.

 

Prioritize relationships. 

Connecting with empathetic and understanding people can remind you that you are not alone during difficulties. Focus on finding trustworthy and compassionate individuals who validate your feelings. Do not isolate yourself. It is important to accept help and support from those who care about you.

 

Healthy Thinking

Keep things in perspective. Do not think the world is out to get you. Adapt a balanced and realistic thinking pattern. How you think can play a significant part in how you feel during a stressful event, but you can change how you interpret and respond to it.

Accept that change is a part of life. It is hard to be positive when life is not going your way. An optimistic outlook empowers you to expect that good things will happen to you. Try visualizing what you want, rather than worrying about what you fear. Along the way, note any subtle ways in which you start to feel better as you deal with difficult situations.

 

The important thing to remember is you can be resilient during these challenging times and you can grow by focusing on the aspects of life’s challenges.  💜 Blessing c

 

Persevere

August 5, 2020

Perseverance is the key to success, and success inevitably arrives for everyone who perseveres. Life presents challenges, but this is part of the learning process, and we learn from our mistakes. 

 

Do you persevere? Or, after meeting rejection or difficulties, do you quit?

 

Test your perseverance quotient by looking at some of the following:

1. I have clear goals.

2. I know my limitations.

3. I rebound from disappointments.

4. I focus and complete projects.

5. I adapt to change.

6. I believe in my creation.

 

Here are some tips for persevering:

• Live in the present. Don’t worry about the past or what might happen. Let go – the more attached you are to something, the greater the fear of losing it.

• Maintain optimism. Expect good things. Keep a journal of positive experiences.

• Clarify your goals. Be clear about what you manifest. Base it on your purpose, needs, and abilities.

• Acknowledge your accomplishments. Judge these against personal standards of self-improvements. Have the courage of your convictions. Don’t change for others or compare yourself to them.

• Care for you mind, body, emotions, and spirit. Schedule quiet times to think and reassess. Practice deep breathing, exercise. get sufficient sleep and eat healthy.

• Focus. Focus on goals daily. At regular intervals, ask yourself whether your activities are moving you forward. 

💜 Blessing c

 

What is Adaptability?

August 3, 2020

I believe that adaptability can be defined as our ability to move peacefully in any direction at any time. This may mean physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually. It is our willingness to let go, flow, learn something new, make mistakes (and not judge ourselves for them) and stay in the moment. However, to do that we must be comfortable in making last minute adjustments or be willing to change our behavior in each unfamiliar situation.

 

Most of us go into a new situation with our minds already made up about what we think is going to happen, or with expectations of how it should be. These thoughts are programmed in us from our past personal experiences, other people’s opinions, or simply mistaken beliefs. Each of us form ideas about what will happen based on these experiences or beliefs, and this usually affects the choices or actions we take.

 

Here are some things you can do right now to increase your ability to adapt. Change your perspective by looking at both sides of an issue. Break the mold by changing your habits and add spontaneity to your daily routine. Travel out of your comfort zone and take risks and face your fears; there is nothing you can't accomplish to become a more empowered self.   💜 Blessing c

 

Expect the Unexpected

August 2, 2020

The full moon rising in Aquarius on August 3, 2020 will be grabbing all the cosmic attention. Everyone’s relationship with their emotions will be more complicated because the moon in Aquarius has a strong need for emotional freedom. Our social lives will take some twists and turns, too. When you are with a group of people, you may will notice them displaying negative emotions such as fear, anger, and jealousy.

 

 

 

The best way to handle this erratic energy is to be open-minded, flexible, and do not react to it. You will then be able to use your heightened instincts and reflexes to your advantage. You will be able to quickly adapt to these unexpected changes and take advantage of the positives that will transpire. 

 

So, it is all about our roles within friendships, social groups, and our communities at large. Use the full moon’s energy to give you clarity, perspective, and a balance of trust within your circle. This way we will be able to keep the collective good in mind as we make decisions about how to move forward. 💜 Blessing c 

 

Listen to Your Intuition

July 29, 2020

Intuition is simply knowing something without knowing exactly how you know it. Connect back to a time that you had a "gut feeling" about something - the job that you knew you shouldn't take, even though it looked good on the surface or the relationship that just felt right for you. That's your intuition talking to you.

 

Benefits: Gut feelings are a wealth of information. Remember, your intuition is never wrong, although your interpretation of it may be incorrect. When your intuition calls to you, trust it. Practice makes perfect when it comes to using your intuition effectively.

 

New Focus: The next time you need to make a decision, check in with your intuition. Experiment with trusting it.  

💜 Blessing c

 

Inspire - A More Joyful Life

July 26, 2020

What if we focused on gratitude each day?  I have learned that some days it is harder to find the good, and other days the good bursts through leaving me with an "all is well" feeling.  I believe that we create our own reality, and how we respond to it is how the world responds back to us "good or bad".  When we stay in the goodness of life, we can be centered, balanced and content.  My gram said, "Busy hands make a peaceful mind". 💜 Blessing c

The spiritual journey is individual, highly personal. It can’t be organized or regulated.  It isn’t true that everyone should follow one path.  Listen to your own truth.  Ram Dass, Spiritual Teacher/Author

 

Morning Meditation

July 24, 2020

Start by bringing your attention upwards into the Universe above all human influence. Your intention will automatically take you to the Divine source of peace and love.  The frequency of God's golden light of true faith is that "All is Well".

 

Breathing in slowly, hold the intention of connecting that loving light with your energy. As the divine light flows down through the crown of your head feel this powerful loving energy strengthening you in body, mind and spirit.  Now allow this light to continue expanding outward, filling every cell of your body while nourishing and healing you.  Stand in the incredible beauty and warmth of the everlasting light of God, saturating your whole being in this 'feel good" moment.  Imagine this powerful, peaceful, loving, presence surrounding you with a protective sphere.  

 

Now bring your attention back to the soles of you feet and feel a connection to the earth. Return back to a conscious state knowing that your energy is flowing perfectly with each breath. When you are ready, open your eyes and you will feel energized for the remainder of the day.    💜 Blessing c

 

Berries - World's Healthiest Foods 

July 17, 2020

Berries are one of my favorite foods. Here are a few reasons why. They are loaded with antioxidants, high in fiber, and help improve blood sugar. They may lower cholesterol levels, provide nutrients and help fight inflammation. Whether we grow our own berries or shop at our local market, berries are fresh in season right now. Enjoy the gifts of summer.  💜 Blessing c

 

Earth Angels

July 15, 2020

 

As Molly Friedenfeld wrote, “Earthly Angels do not allow other souls to dim their light; they just keep shining bright as the sun, for this helps other souls to reconnect with their own light and shine brightly too!” Being an earth angel is not easy, but it is a rewarding path to travel. Shine on!

 

The simple truth is, that at the core level, we are all spiritual beings of light. There are, however; certain souls with empathic characteristics making up what the spirit calls Earth Angels or Light-workers.  💜 Blessing c

 

Taking Responsibility

July 13, 2020

Take responsibility for your thoughts, feelings, words and action. Stop blaming and stop complaining!  Refuse to take other's actions personally. Make yourself happy by living in the present moment. By tapping into your divine intention you will feel confident and stay centered.  💜 Blessing c

Appreciate the Little Things

July 11, 2020

It is a beautiful Saturday morning at our house and my husband, and I are sitting on the deck drinking a perfect cup of coffee. We are chatting and suddenly he points out a little furry bunny sitting in our yard. The joy that bunny brought, in that moment, made my heart burst with appreciation. I know that we are told over and over that it is the little things in life that make it complete. I wonder if we could just sit and appreciate the world around us more often, especially during these busy times, the benefits our bodies, minds, and souls would receive. 

 

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if this became the new normal.   💜 Blessing c

Gifts of Summer

July 10. 2020

I am guided to remind you to remember how blessed you are. You are the one who can make amazing things happen in your life. This will make you feel whole inside, as if you have a brand new lease on life. Appreciate all that has been given (gifted) to you and try not to take anything for granted. Peace and balance create healthy cells and a healthy mind and body, which helps you stay younger.

Peace Within

July 7, 2020

As we ask the Creator to guide us through grace may our lives be filled with blessings and may we find gratitude in each moment. Let's all spread the gifts of appreciation in our lives and our world.

 

Divine Creator… with gratitude I ask for peace…may I see blessings in each moment that I am alive. I bless this body for it is healthy and strong so that I can be a temple for your light to shine. I bless my mind for it helps me remember my purpose to serve your will, for your will is mine. I bless my eyes so that I can see with clarity your vision… for your vision is mine. I bless my ears so that I hear your sacred voice and remember to speak your truth. To live my life through love for only love exists. Today your peace is mine, my heart is quiet, and my mind is still.

Right Mindset

July 3, 2020

Everything happens on a mental level before it manifests on the physical level. This is why it is so important to get your mindset right. You have to believe in yourself no matter what the external circumstances are. Strengthen your vision and have hope that things can get better.  Averstu.com

Overcoming Indecision

July 1, 2020

Do you ever find yourself at a loss when it comes to making decisions.  Whether making decisions big or small they do not have to cause concern or stress in your life.  I believe the fear of making the wrong decision is the reason many people hesitate to make a choice.  If you have labeled yourself as an indecisive person, just change it! 

 

Lack of confidence in making decisions is only a mindset. Step back and  tell yourself you are making choices based on what is for your highest good.  Trust yourself and your own judgement.  You will know you have made the right decision when there is peace in your heart. 💜 Blessing c 

 

Meditation for Health

June 30, 2020

Meditation is an amazing tool to address conditions such as anxiety, stress, physical pain and insomnia.  Find a place to sit comfortably, uninterrupted for about 30 minutes.  The most important part of meditating is breathing. If we breathe slowly our bodies automatically relax. Your only task during meditation is to be aware of your breath.  If your mind wanders bring it back to your breath.  Try this, you will feel the results!

Heal Your Life

Dalai Lama's Influence 

June 26, 2020

 

    "Just one small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day." Dalai Lama

 

The Dalai Lama is one of the most beloved and inspirational figures of the last century, and is the spiritual leader of the Chinese Province of Tibet. The Dalai Lama is a significant leader advocating peace for the Tibetan people's independence.  In my opinion he is one of the world’s great moral leaders.  💜 Blessing c

Our Journey Forward

June 24, 2020

For each of us, there is a specific divine order for our life's journey. The energy in July, is about divine order, not control, and we must trust that through love we are on the right path. I believe that when we release our grip on energies that no longer serve us for our highest good, positive circumstances will come into our world. Then, and only then can we manifest our best life. The peace that comes from letting go of how it should be, and living in trust, is priceless. As we continue in the spiritual truth of releasing who or what, we can find purpose in our lives and complete our journey. 💜 Blessing c

Being a father is the most important thing he can ever do.

Blessings to all the fathers. Happy Father's Day!

Spiritual Healing 

June 21, 2020

I believe that spiritual healing is about finding a connection to something greater than ourselves. It gives us a sense of virtue or a meaning that all is well. God, a higher power, can give us a sense of higher truth, beauty, or sacredness in our everyday life.

 

June 21, 2020 begins the summer solstice which symbolizes the return/ascension to the Great Father Spirit. During this period of summer solstice look for the sacred moments and celebrate life.

Benefits of Mindfulness

June 16, 2020

As we are going through this unprecedented time in our country, and throughout the world, practicing simple and effective ways to ease our minds may make a big difference.

 

You can incorporate “mindfulness” practices into your daily routine by taking five minutes in the morning to meditate or find time after lunch to quiet your mind and focus on your breathing. These routines may have positive health benefits like reducing feelings of loneliness and stress, improving your memory, sleep, and immune system, and increasing compassion for yourself and others.

 

Mindfulness means taking time to pay attention to yourself including your thoughts and feelings.

 

Making Mindfulness a Routine

1. Find 5 to 10 minutes each day and sit quietly and focus on your breath. Turn your phone off so you will not be interrupted. Now notice where your mind goes and how your body is feeling. You just might find that this helps you focus & prioritize your day.

2. Before bed think of the good things that happened that day. Write them down in your journal which can help you recognize the positive, even if you have had a bad day.

3. Search your phone or tablet for “mindfulness apps” that can help you with mindful exercises. These will help you to practice every day and most of them are free.

 

Feeling Lonely? Mindfulness May Help

Mindfulness has been shown to help overcome loneliness. Many adults (especially those age 65 and over) experience moderate to severe loneliness. Loneliness is characterized by a marked difference between someone’s desired companionship and actual relationships. Social isolation and physical distancing may be the cause of loneliness for many people during this time. Loneliness may be challenging--especially in today’s situation. However, by practicing mindfulness your optimism and quality of life may be comforted and that will help reduce loneliness.

Inspiration

June 17, 2020

Have you ever wondered if you have made a substantial difference in someone’s life?

 

This thought has been running through my mind lately. Spiritually we know that compassion and unconditional love is our guiding force and brings us into alignment with the Divine. This may be why we are here on earth; but how do we know we have made a true difference?

 

There is not really a way to measure the impact we can have on another person’s life. I believe that the smallest inspiration can change the course of someone else’s journey. I think there are many moments where we have done just that. 

 

Perhaps the most powerful influence we can have in someone’s life is through healthy relationships. Through these intimate relationships we can influence, inspire, and build each other up to be better, which gives us the opportunity to make a positive impact on each other’s lives.

 

I honestly believe that is how we live our lives in balance and grace and has the greatest influence on others. Take a moment today to make a positive impact on someone you know or don’t know today! Let your light shine. 💜Blessings c

Divine Truth

June 10, 2020

What is Divine Truth?

 

When I think of Divine Truth, I immediately feel that deep within each of us is a space of perfection, beauty, innocence and light that cannot be seen with the physical eyes, but can be experienced with the inner spiritual vision. Connecting with this space, even if briefly, offers us a new way to understand ourselves and everyone else in our lives. It is an invitation to push a ‘reset’ button where we whitewash everything with the light of love and forgiveness, so only light, love and innocence remain.

 

Truth is the place within us that cannot be changed or distorted by anything external. Can you imagine that within us we have a storehouse of infinite energy, vision and bliss. These can never be taken away, and we can access them at any time.

 

Forming a connection to the true self, to me, feels like having an anchor that grounds me in my life, allowing me to be aligned both physically and emotionally.  💜Blessing c 

 

Staying Positive

June 8, 2020

I believe if we stay positive, we will have the energy to weather any storm. There are things we need to know to protect ourselves and those around us, but we do not need to become obsessed with every detail from dawn until bedtime. Here are a few tools to help you stay positive.

 

 

You can limit your media (TV, radio, internet) intake by choosing a single news source and decide how much time you spend with it each day. Then stick to your plan.

 

Look to the past and get hope from your past resilience. It is likely you have endured many major life disruptions (9/11, hurricanes, fires, unemployment, financial loss). You made it through and are stronger for it!

 

Send gifts or cards in the mail. Unexpected gifts, or mail, can be a huge pick-me-up in times of stress. This is especially valuable to those who are isolated.

 

Take advantage of found time. This gives you an opportunity to focus on some things you have previously had no time to do. Read a book, organize drawers/closets, plant flowers or a garden, clean out the garage and donate. It’s liberating!

 

Practice random acts of kindness. Your kindness doesn’t require a monetary outlay. Leave a thank you note for the delivery or mail person or custodian in your office. Think of those who could benefit from your thoughtfulness and generosity. Then act.

 

Take a daily inventory. Close your day with gratitude, and a positive acknowledgement of something you accomplished, learned or are grateful for. 

💜Blessings c

Surrendering to Peace

June 6, 2020

My question is? 

Are we coming from a place of peace or fear? The more we bring our awareness into the present moment, we will see, sense, and feel clarity surrounding us. I call this tapping into our divine awareness, for our highest good and the highest good of all concerned. This is similar to a drop of water in an ocean. If each droplet changes their frequency, the ocean begins to change as well. 💜Blessing c
