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

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

Life should not be measured by the number of breaths you take,
but rather by the number of moments that take your breath away. Pieces of Soul
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.
💜 Blessings, c

A Moment in Time
March 24, 2021
Investing wisely in each moment’s thoughts can change our perception of our daily lives. What we perceive to be our future is based upon what we assign value to in each moment. That is what we can accomplish when we turn our moments into intentional thought choices. 💜 Blessings, c
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.
💜 Blessings, c

"May your troubles be less, and your blessings be more. And nothing but happiness come through your door."
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

International Women's Day
March 8, 2021
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.
International Women's Day is not country, group, nor organization specific. The day belongs to all groups everywhere whose collective efforts are for all who care about human rights". Make it your day and do what you can to truly make a positive difference for women.💜Blessings, c
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.
Transforming My Life
March 3, 2021
Today I am committed to transforming my life. By acknowledging that I am willing to change my old patterns and behaviors I can transform my life for the better. In doing so, I can be more honest with myself. Above all, I will relax, take time, and enjoy the process. I’m ready to jump-start the next phase of my spiritual journey. 💜Blessings c
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
Shout out to everyone who hasn't felt great lately, but gets up
everyday and refuses to quit. Stay Strong!
Just letting my spiritual family know that my sweet younger sister Cheryl transitioned to the Lord on February 20, 2021, at 1:11 p.m. Thank you all for your support and loving prayers. The angels took her home to be with Spirit. I don’t think of her as gone, but as her true journey has just begun and she was loved so much. I believe in my heart that nothing loved is ever lost. Cheryl you will live in all our hearts forever. See you in my dreams. 💜Blessings c

I Believe in Self
February 16, 2021
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 -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
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
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. 💜Blessings c

Full Wolf Moon on January 28, 2021
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
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

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 m

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

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. 💜Blessings c

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

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.

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

Being true to yourself is a personal choice for truth when making choices about how you want to live.

You can live as your genuine natural self being completely honest, sincere, open-minded, and fair. Bottom line use common sense and follow your value system.
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
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.

Are you an optimistic person? Consider adopting the following qualities of optimistic people.
1. They are self-motivated
Optimistic people are self-motivated people. They see everything as an opportunity rather than a problem and are more willing to take action and work for what they want. Self-motivation comes from within. Knowing that your dreams and goals are possible make you feel driven to move forward.
2. They surround themselves with other positive people
Optimistic people surround themselves with other like-minded people. Birds of the same feathers flock together. Therefore, keep an eye on whom you spend the most time with. If you want to be optimistic, be with positive people.
3. They express gratitude
Optimistic people often express gratitude. No matter what happens, they value it, and they feel grateful for it. They acknowledge the fact that they cannot change the situation, but they can change themselves. Gratitude is one of the most life-changing qualities that you can adopt.
4. They are happy and joyful
Optimistic people are happy people. This is because they see things from the bright and positive side, thus, they feel happy and smile a lot. The act of smiling can make you and others feel better. Smile more and make each moment worth living with unlimited possibilities. 💜 Blessings MM

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?

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
“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

“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
“I want to calm down, to rest, to outlive this nonsense.” ― Anne Sexton
When we get too caught up in the busyness of the world, we lose connection with one another – and ourselves.
Your Intentions Towards Others
September 15, 2020
What are your intentions, and can you put into practice a method to achieve good intentions towards others? The answer is yes - by practicing being kind and compassionate. These are words that mean having good intentions toward living beings, including oneself.
This goodwill is present in warmth, friendliness, decency, empathy, generosity, and love. The pure heart leans toward others; it is not neutral or indifferent.
• Being kind and empathic towards oneself is needed to shift your brain into its responsive mode. Only then can your body repair and refuel itself and in turn you will feel happy and peaceful.
• Being decent and friendly toward others builds trust, and likely guarantees good treatment in return. Right now, while we feel increasingly stressed and isolated, and our relationships are often on shaky ground – these acts are not just moral, they are essential.
How can we practice and maintain these intentions in ourselves and in our relationships?
• Know what compassion and kindness feels like in your body, heart, and mind. When you have a sense of warmth and good wishes toward someone how does this feel?
• Realize that these feelings are natural and normal – the news coverage blasts us with words and pictures of that make us think ordinary decency and kindness are not normal.
• Take care of yourself - When your core needs are met, and you do not feel stressed your brain goes into a resting state. Then most people are empathic, compassionate, and kind: in a word, benevolent. 💜Blessings mm
Remembering September 11, 2001
“For me and my family personally, September 11 was a reminder that life is fleeting, impermanent, and uncertain. Therefore, we must make use of every moment and nurture it with affection, tenderness, beauty, creativity, and laughter.” — Deepak Chopra
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
August 7, 2020
For a lot of people, Labor Day means two things: a day off and the end of summer. But why is it called Labor Day? Labor Day is a day set aside to pay tribute to working men and women. It has been celebrated as a national holiday in the United States since 1894.
This Labor Day, Monday September 7, 2020 may be a little different with social distancing and mask-wearing guidelines, but we can still enjoy a backyard bar-b-que, the beach, or the park—the great outdoors.
Have a safe day off and surround yourself with those you are closest to. 💜Blessings mm
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
Each of us is doing the very best we can at this moment. If we knew better, if we had more understanding and awareness, we would do it differently. But since we’re doing our best, we need to applaud ourselves for our efforts.

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
When you forgive you heal, and when you let go you grow. unknown
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.

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

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

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.

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.

Above all, be the heroine in your life, not the victim.

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!

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
