Gratitude, Joy

True Joy!

joy cardThis year, my spouse Don and I, and our daughter Sivanna, got together with Don’s kids, grandkids and their spouses, great grandkids, and Joyce, the beautiful mother, grandmother, and great grandmother of all of these beautiful people, for an early Christmas celebration.

I feel very grateful to be a part of this extended family and thought I would take a minute to write about my JOY. This card from Don’s two sons and their families sums it up quite well. “Christmas is about believing in miracles and being a blessing, reviving our spirits and celebrating our JOY… Christmas is about remembering all the wonderful things in life, like the people who mean so much to us, people like you.”

 

I thought this was a beautiful card with a beautiful message and it will be treasured. I must mention that they also got us a great present that made me jump for JOY!

A kajak for our new place on the lake. I was so excited about this. 🙂 I can see so much JOY to be had by all as we use this and enjoy the beauty of nature and our beautiful surroundings.

I encourage  all of us to read the words from this greeting card and to believe in Miracles, to be a Blessing and revive our spirits now and always. How do we do this? We do this by celebrating our JOY and by counting our blessings and that includes the people in our lives that Love us and that we Love back. Thank you to our beautiful family for the blessing of being together and celebrating our JOY together this holiday season.

I Woke Up in a Dream

Joy Beach

Today I woke up in a dream, or so it seemed. For most of my adult life I have always held a vision that I would one day have a place either on the ocean, probably Hawaii or on Lake Superior in Canada. I never worried about how it would happen, I just knew it would and that the perfect place would manifest. So today I awoke at my place on Lake Superior that I have had for a few months now, after returning home from my first trip to Hawaii. 😊 How do you like that for comparison? Lol

The trip was wonderful and beautiful and in fact breathtaking but I ended up changing my flight and coming home two days earlier than originally planned. So here I am waking up here on Lake Superior on the very day I should be travelling home, and I am finding myself in complete and utter JOY! I am also in complete clarity. Lake Superior is where I need to be. My heart is with this place here on earth.

Many people have asked me if I regretted leaving Hawaii early and coming home to cold and snow. My response was “No, I love my life and have nothing I am running away from so I am happy at either place”. However, coming home to the snow made me realize how much I do love the seasons. I love the snow. I love the fall, the spring, the summer and the transitions. I love it all! Not to say I won’t travel to warm places and experience new experiences, but for a place to live, I pick here! 😊

I am sitting here in complete and utter Bliss. Here is where I will write my best-selling books, create my blog posts to share with the world and hope I impact lives positively. I will also create online workshops to help people to live in JOY, to manifest their ideal lives, and to teach universal laws that work!

In Hawaii I attended a Soulapalooza Conference with Mike Dooley, from Tut.com, the originator of The Note from the Universe.

It was amazing. I have since registered to also become an “Infinite Possibilities” Certified Trainer which is happening on my birthday in May of 2019. Here I will learn directly from Mike Dooley and Certified Trainers who are actively teaching Infinite Possibilities in schools, homeless shelters, prisons, private coaching practices, business corporations, etc. By the time I complete this I will be prepared to even more so teach people the truth about life’s magic, our power, and the infinite possibilities we’re showered with to live happier lives.

When you tap into the universal tool kit, magic can happen. This morning I am working on my upcoming online workshop called “Tapping into The Universal Powerhouse”, that is there for all of us by the way. So, stay tuned and I hope you will join me as a co-creator in this workshop. I will be launching this as a 1 hour, super impactful and full of gems, that will launch anyone who is ready to work on manifesting their ideal life! It’s going to be so much fun too! I hope you will join me.

I close today, sending you’re the highest of vibes and I hope that you too are ready to get crystal clear on what is important to you and that you are ready to manifest your perfect life that will serve your for your highest good. 😊

The Greatest Gift

own happiness

I saw this quote today and just loved, loved, loved it! It reminded me of a FB post I did yesterday about my daughter in reference to a trip that I on right now. I am in Hawaii for the first time on a bucket list trip. I have always wanted to come here and have finally done so!

Here was the post and picture:

I truly believe the greatest gift we can give one another is our own happiness and along with that, allowing others to have their happiness too!

I think this applies to death too. So often people are so sad for long after a loved one’s passing. I always imagine their loved one saying something like this, from the other side “Stop!!! What are you doing? Be happy. I’m gone but you’re still there….. don’t waste another second in sadness and pain. You still have time left 🙂 I only want for you to be happy!!!!”. Although never easy losing loved ones, I am sure we would all agree they would just want us to be happy.

I leave you with the thought of having an intention to make your happiness a priority so that you can give this gift to those you love and that love you and the world at large!

Peace Hack 101

t pillow

I love this pillow my friend gave me. It says “The secret to having it all is believing you already do”. Now I love that but I change it up a bit to “The secret to having it all is KNOWING you already do”.

I think knowing sounds much more universally confident and sends a clear message that you are at peace with life and in turn life will bring you more peace. I am sure we have all heard the saying along the way “act as if”. This is not to be underestimated in its power. Acting as if and declaring that you ‘know’ and ‘trust’ that things are well, signals more of this in your life. It sounds simple and it is but it works!

I encourage you to try this and see what happens. One of the prayers I use is: “Thank you God/Universe/You Fill in the Blank, for already solving this problem for me and then I let it go! And it works. Try it. It’s a great one.

I close today wishing you all more Peace and Love and all the good stuff that life has to offer.

Joy, Life Coaching

Define who YOU are….

14695368_10207800909396483_2304208567022143608_n

Wow. I saw this quote and I thought there is so much truth to it. Many of us spend a lifetime defining who we are based on beliefs from sources outside of ourselves like comments from others, teachings, religions, chance encounters, media and more. And yet, so many people feel disconnected from ‘who they really are’ or they are very self-critical and hard on themselves. We definitely can be our own worst enemy when defining who we are.

It is my belief that I can re-create myself anew in an given moment. Everyday is a new day to redefine myself. I teach this to my clients also. Nothing, has meaning until we give it meaning. If we want a new life or a new version of how we see ourselves, we have to tell a new story and that story must be based on OUR chosen version of who we say we are, not the external world, forces, and opinions.

We get to be butterflies coming out of the cocoon everyday and every minute. This is the true embodiment of personal empowerment.

What about you? Will you be a butterfly today? Will you allow yourself to be free to be you?

En-JOY!

Joy, Lemons

Decorate Your Life With JOY!

life is a ceremony

This was the start of my beautiful morning. Warm lemon water in a pretty cup, some meditation today (not all days), and then a short yoga session which focused today on appreciating the feet and knees.

Lately I have been ceremoniously enjoying my things and experiences and tying them together. For example when I prepare my morning celery juice I offer it up, pre-juicer, on a nice elongated white plate. There is something extra special doing it that way verses grabbing the celery from the sink and stuffing it in the juicer. 🙂

Here, in this picture, I enjoy my lemon water in a pretty tea cup along with my new favorite lemon water carafe. I find the more special and ceremonious I make my experiences, the deeper I appreciate them. They become sacred in fact.

A client just messaged me about how to prepare lemon water and I mentioned to her that I enjoy slicing my lemons thinly in the cup because it is like a whole bunch of sunshine in my cup. It truly makes me smile to see it. That is an example of infusing more JOY. I like to call all of this “Decorating Your Day with JOY”. 🙂

Update: my client just sent me this! How wonderful!

I hope you too find ways to infuse more JOY into your day and enjoy the little things that you do for you health consistently because they truly do become the BIG things. All things done with JOY are enhanced and extra special too. 🙂

Just Be….

IMG_4520

One of the areas of my life that I am working on is to “Just Be” more often than “Doing”. Sometimes it’s easier than others, but I find I am yearning even more than ever to just be and to enjoy the simple things in life.

I took this picture a couple of years ago at my cottage. I find that I can really get into the groove of relaxing when I am in nature. Nature helps me to connect to my soul and to become one with my essence.

There are many ways to practice the art of being and there is no right or wrong way to do this. Here are some suggestions. Feel free to add to the list:

. A relaxing bath
. Listen to music
. Read a chapter in a good book
. Star gaze
. Moon gaze
. Hug a mug of hot tea with your hands
. Stare out a window
. Light a candle and set an intention when you look at it
. Place some fresh flowers in your space and en-JOY
. Sit on a beach
. Stare at a waterfall
. Stroll in a park
. For some, cooking a meal and connecting with the scents, tastes and love that goes into it

These are a few ideas but there are many ways to connect with our essence. The secret is to set the intention and to make doing so a priority.

Universal Love

sivanna heart pic

This past weekend, my favorite artist, 🙂 my daughter Sivanna who is 12, decided to do some art that entailed using all hearts. I loved the idea! We quickly started to co-create this piece together just as the universe co-creates with us and with our desires and intentions.

In this beautiful piece you can see that all things are connected… the flowers, clouds, sun, butterfly and even a pet! 🙂 And these are all connected through a universal heart and they all are composed of their own hearts.

This beautiful hand-made picture has a profound depth to it. The more we realize that we are all connected, that we are all one, and that what we do affects the whole, the more we will consciously raise the frequency of the planet.

I truly believe that at the end of our lives we will come to understand that at the end of the day Love is all there is, and that the things we spent so much time worrying and fussing over never even mattered in the first place. Wouldn’t it be nice to get to that place now? It’s possible and it’s beautiful. I am personally grateful for this beautiful reminder and encourage all reading this to reflect on the idea of this connectedness and to share this blog post with others…. you will never know the impact it can have.

Beach Glass Heart Eyes :-)

beach glass face.PNG

Today I went for a walk along the beach at my place on Lake Superior. As per usual I picked up any beach glass that I saw as well as any interesting rocks. I often wonder how many rocks I will have 10 years from now? It is just beginning and I am like a kid in absolute joy. I have several collections already.

Today I found two more heart shaped beach glass ones that I used for the eyes in this picture. The thought of them made me reflect on how we see things in life.
Do you see with your eyes but through your heart?

Seeing with our heart involves actively looking for and seeing the beauty in life as well as seeing both the world and its inhabitants with Compassion, Love, and Kindness. And as I always swing back around to…. ourselves. Do you see through your heart and look at your own self with kindness? With Love? With Compassion?

Today and everyday as you go about your daily tasks, please remember to view both the world and yourself with more Love, Kindness and Compassion. When we all do this we raise the collective vibration of Love and Kindness on the planet and we make room for more Beauty and Joy to infiltrate into our experience.

Blessings to all…

Personal Peace

model-2373407

“Until you make peace with who you are, you’ll never be content with what you have”. Doris Mortman

The above is a very powerful quote and is one that is worth paying attention to. Sometimes it takes us an entire lifetime to realize that we came to earth to be exactly who we are. Let’s not wait that long!!!

It becomes very freeing when we realize that we are the ‘gift of who we are’. We are meant to BE ‘who we are’.

This is not to say that we cannot re-define and re-create ourselves anew in any given moment, but I believe, the journey begins where acceptance starts. When we fully embrace who we are and are at peace with who we are, the magic begins. 🙂
The rest of the journey becomes delightful play and co-creation, where we can manifest and delight in the playground of life.
