Whatever your loss, it’s personal to you. Never feel ashamed about how you feel, or believe that it’s somehow only appropriate to grieve for certain things. If it is the death of someone you love, your pet, your relationship, or any situation is important to you, it’s normal to grieve the loss.
Whatever your grief is there are healthy ways to cope with the pain.
Always allow yourself feel the pain and all the other emotions you are going through. Don’t ignore how to feel or let others tell you how you should feel. Be patient and don’t pressure yourself with expectations. Accept that you need to experience your emotions, pain, and sadness. Remember, you have your own way of healing − all in divine timing.
Take care of yourself. Eat well and exercise. Physical activity is a good way to release tension. Do activities that help you renew yourself like long walks, hot baths, naps, and or being with friends.
Give yourself a break from grief. Remember time will ease your sadness and help you come to terms with your loss, and help you find new meaning. Then you can eventually move on with your life.
Dedicated to my loving sister Debbie...I will miss your courage and determination. 💜 Blessings c

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!

It is about holding the light of love and harmony for all. 💜Blessings c

Three Stages of Empathy
March 14, 2022
Empathy is the ability to recognize emotions and to share perspectives with other people. It's one of the five key components of emotional intelligence, and it helps to build trust and strengthen relationships.
To use empathy effectively, give the person you’re talking to your full attention by listening and asking questions, this will help you fully understand their situation. Set aside your own assumptions, acknowledge their feelings, allow an emotional connection, then suggest a positive action that will inspire them.
Three stages of empathy:
Cognitive empathy is being aware of the emotional state of another person.
Emotional empathy is engaging with and sharing those emotions.
Compassionate empathy involves taking action to support other people. 💜Blessings c

Magic Inspires Hope
February 3, 2022
Can magic inspire hope? Magic, through imagination, makes the impossible seem possible. When you worry and are overwhelmed a little magical thinking goes a long way.
So, is the magic real or not? If not, then what is it? It is the power of hope. It is the voice of hope, in a hopeless situation, that tells you anything is possible. Hope is the single most feeling of intention. Hope helps you to be physically and mentally healthy. It increases the sense of meaning in your life and lets you visualize and then realize your dreams.
Hope is essential to wellness and wholeness; it is not just magical. Nurture the power of hope in your life for a more meaningful and successful life. 💜Blessings c
