A New Year is What You Make Of It

All New Years have an expectancy vibe within.  Realizing that we each make our life what  it is may be a very important realization for you.  Many will be asked about their New Year’s Resolution.  Yes, resolve, decide, act upon, achieve — to do what?  I think about keeping my home clean and orderly, running smoothly — it is a business of course,  or creating works of art, or sewing and think ahead about the spring flowers and gardening.

But since resolutions are personal,  how about loving yourself just the way you are, and if you really love yourself, relationships become more cherished, and maybe the extra weight from holiday celebrations will fall away.    Will you love yourself enough to be kind, compassionate, helpful to yourself? Stop judging yourself,  be positive in outlook, maybe even forgive yourself.  Start with loving who you are now.  And one day you will feel the truth in  “Today is a beautiful gift of Life.  It is always now, today.”

We are wise to tend to our own self before we can be of help to others.  It is important to take care of oneself especially if we care for others, children or elderly adults.  If you love yourself and your life, you are in a place to help others find this.

May this be a time of love, compassion, tolerance, joy, health and prosperity for you.  From my heart to yours.

 

 

Anniversaries – good for reflection

Anniversaries of all types, birthdays, weddings, births, deaths, first kiss, first date, graduations, etc.; all have emotional content that is good to periodically investigate with introspection – reflection.

Warm remembrances may bring nostalgia and darker times may stir up painful times.  Traumas of all types are stored in the cells of our bodies, and can cause dis-ease.  A good way of dealing with these events is with Eye Motion Desensitization Reframing therapy which will do wonders.  Just remember when removing a stored energy pattern, it is required you visualize golden light energy in its place, or the original pattern will fill the vacuum.

Upon reflecting upon the anniversary of birth, I am thankful for all the people in my life and the gift of another day lived with love in my heart.

 

 

 

Happy to be back

After many days spent with attention to and intention for healing my physical body from a shoulder problem and an ankle and soft tissue foot problem, which some would say is aging, I am back!  Happily so.  One thing about all this is while some aspects were challenging — the pain in my shoulder — from over use — was the worst pain in my memory.  Blogging, typing, emailing, posting all came to a halt. Life became simpler.  So I filled my days with what I could do and was content to ‘not do’ some days.

For those of you that drive, drive, drive to do, to do and to do; it is important to find balance to all the do-ing.  Schedule time in your planner for ‘you’ time and treat it as important as the most important thing you do.  You will find an inner voice that will finally speak, which is different that your mind’s voice running amuck. It is a quiet voice, non judgmental and loving. May you find it, for when you do, you will find who you really are.

So my wish for you is time to stop do-ing and just be.  You will hear birds singing, bees buzzing, the sound of the breeze moving what it touches if you are outside.  Just Be. All we really have is the present moment.  See it, feel it, let it go.  Be in the moment.  Feel more alive! Be alive in each moment.  Be mindful.

 

Ever wonder why?

We always have planted the seeds of what we are experiencing in the present.  Think back to when you believed in yourself, and you were able to do so much.  Or, did you think about yourself with criticism, self doubt, or dislike your body?  Where are you now, dealing with weight issues, health issues, relationship issues?  What we think about, how we think about ourselves is really important.  We are incredibly powerful creatures with the ability to create our experiences and our place in the world.  It takes so little time to connect with another person, to smile, to treat them with care and respect.  Validate the connection with feelings of love and compassion.  One person can change their own world and the world for others.  When one is lifted up, all are lifted up.  It is the law of the universe.

Live mindfully.  Live Lovingly, Live Compassionately, Live with a Grateful Heart!

It is cold and the snow is still here.

Please remember our feathered friends during this time of snow covering and cold temperatures that keep most of us wishing to stay inside. Give them your crusts of bread, seed, nuts, whatever you have to help the birds when they cannot find food because of the snow. Show kindness to others, for the walk you walk you know of, the walk others walk you don’t. So don’t suppose to know what another is thinking, assumptions are an illusion we have about others. If you want to know what is happening with someone else, ask. It is that simple. Doing this can help remove drama from your life. I would suggest a book for you to read if this makes sense to you and you wish to know more. It is “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz. He also has a Facebook page. Peace and Love to all.

My heart’s desire

As the year approaches a close and a new chance to start afresh is ever clearer, find the time to ponder your contribution to an increasingly peaceful, kinder, empathetic self.  Look deep inside and see your worth, your beauty, your astonishing knowledge of how we are all connected, and as one is raised in divine vibration, all are affected.  Take the time to meditate in prayer to find your way to help make this world a far better place than it is today.  Peace be with you, Peace be with you, Peace be with you. It is so, It is so, It is so.

First snow

The first snowfall this season had the world around me looking like a snow globe.  The air that was crisp is now cold, and I have a yearning to withdraw to a place of warmth.  The holidays are not the same since my parents passed away, and why this year seems harder than normal is a mystery.  I just may find solace in my studio.  I will post next when I have a painting to share.  Until then, put finding peace, light, and love on the top of your daily to-do list.
