Two Easy Life Hacks!!!!!

bella love is in my home

When the opportunity arose the other day, I snapped this picture , which I consider adorable, to say the least. I was thinking I should use this in a blog post and then got to thinking…  every time I look at it my heart swells with gratitude so I will write about gratitude and share some easy hacks I have found to add more gratitude into our lives.

Hack #1

Pets! Pets are the easiest, fastest and #1 way to shift one into a frequency of gratitude. When they greet you with unbridled exuberance and are jumping for joy to see you, it’s pretty hard not to feel grateful for their presence. Wouldn’t you agree? πŸ™‚

My little Bella, who is in this picture, patiently waits for me every morning to do yoga together. Seriously!  My yoga usually starts with a short conscious relaxation segment and Bella lies on top of me. When I get to the part that says “touch one hand to your solar plexus and one hand to your heart”, I usually change it to “Touch one hand to your cat and one hand to your heart”. It works for me ha ha. πŸ™‚ Bella likes it too!

Pets are full of unconditional love and they display it often and well. Gratitude and Love are two matching frequencies and they are really one in the same so the more we can tap into the frequency of gratitude, the more love we let into our lives and the world. And let’s face it, that’s probably a darn good idea isn’t it?

Hack #2

Place things into your space that trigger feelings of well-being and gratitude. The pillow in the top picture says it all. “Love is in my home’. It reminds me every time I see it to remember what is really important to me. It also makes me think of the good friend who gave me this pillow for my 50th birthday. Thinking of her always puts a big smile on my face.

I also use pictures and artwork that make me happy and remind me of the beauty in life, like this one.

When I look at this throughout my day, I am reminded that life is good, that there is beauty when I look for it. Even looking at this picture of my picture brings me Joy! Especially when I see the sun dancing in it… extra Joy Pop!

Here is another example of how I incorporate messages and reminders for gratitude and beauty and joy into life. I have several cups that I like to use with beautiful sayings on them. 25009309_367512150377862_4686375542654500864_n

So not only is this cup reminding me to have a great day, but the green smoothie inside will bring joy and gratitude to every cell of my body, especially after it is charged with these empowering words.  How awesome is that?

It is important to remember, that EVERYTHING is energy and has a frequency to it.  Be sure to put into your environment, things that make you feel good and remind you of all that you have to be grateful for. There is always something to see if you will look. πŸ™‚

The Power of Pets

The Power of Pets
There is a video link at the end of this post that sums up the love and loyalty that can happen between a pet and an owner. It also shows how one animal can impact, in a positive way, the lives of many. Animals are pure love and they ignite the love within ourselves. We resonate with this at our very core because this is what we are at our essence, love. Take a minute to watch this video I ran across this morning, as it is quite beautiful and truly shows the power of love and loyalty.

On another note, recently we got a kitten and named her 'Bella'. Bella is about six months old now and is a huge part of the family. This was a picture of her just before we brought her home.

There is something about the energy and love that an animal brings to a home. In fact, last night, my friend Helen dropped by and commented on this. She said something to the effect, “There is just something about walking into a house, especially when there are children present, but missing a pet. It just seems incomplete.” I had to agree because  since acquiring Bella, the combined energies and attention paid to each and every member in the household is truly raising the love vibe in our house. It feels complete!

My 7 year old Sivanna shows Bella kindness, cares for her and is thrilled to show Bella to her friends! We also feel so wonderful that we took Bella in as she was found abandoned with her 2 siblings in the cold bushes of Northwestern Ontario. The good news is they have all since found homes! πŸ™‚ This is thanks to #SandiBoucher, a local author and motivational speaker, who orignaly brought them to town.

Sivanna often mentions the fact about how glad she is that we have Bella, especially since she was found outside. It seems very important to her. As a mother, I am grateful for the teachings she has so gladly received on compassion, caring, and loving other creatures on earth.

Sivanna often also remarks to me about how good it is that I feed our outdoor animal friends such as the birds and the squirrels that come to our house. She explains to me the importance of helping them when it is so cold and their food supply is limited.

We really enjoy watching all the critters share and take turns at the offering. The big black crows have a turn, then the squirrel comes and while he takes to tree to eat his offerings, others birds enjoy.

I love that we can co-exist on our planet with all creatures and truly believe my land is not “my land”, but a place for all of it’s inhabitants to co-exist and enjoy the gift of each other.
