Self Care Sunday – Decisions and Adjustments

My self care is my responsibility. With this in mind, I decided to do a formal check-in on my own holistic wellness this week. In other words, I did few exercises to look at my overall holistic health. I identifed two areas I need to refocus myself and make decisions and adjustments.

First, the work/career area of my life needed to be reset. After taking a step back, I realized the professional limbo and uncertainty I’ve been in my career has been bleeding negativity and inaction into other areas of my life. It all started when I got myself stuck in limbo about six weeks ago after I made a decision but was asked to give them a little bit of time to fix things or work things out. Well, six weeks later there still isn’t clarity and it is now a political hot potato going between managers. I took the opportunity to pull the escape hatch this week. I put an end to my involvement in it. I also noticed I am starting to lose my patience with the situation so I needed to find an exit ramp so I don’t lose my temper inappropriately.

Decisions

Staying in professional limbo was killing my motivation. I am a do-er. Being paralyze hasn’t been good for my emotional well-being the last month and the anxiety was starting to make me depressed and sick. When given the opportunity to step out, I took it. I am returning to old group on April 1st. I have a meeting set up at the end of the week to discuss my new responsibilities. It felt good to take my power back and let go of a situation that was stressing me out. While I am a bit sad, it became clear to me that it was costing me too much to try and working things out. It was time to choose again. I chose again. The bottom line is it was starting to be too hard…it should not be this hard.

Law of attraction

When I get stressed out, sad or anxious, my diet is always the first to suffer😌I hit the sugar and carbs hard ☺️ 😂I start to rely on my comfort foods. Since the beginning of the year, sugar, dairy and carbs have sneaked back into daily meals and have edged out the protein and veggies.

Cheat day meme

I was suspecting that not getting enough protein was actually the source of my muscle and joint pains recently so I used a food diary, www.myfitnesspal.com, to track my food for a month. I realized that I am getting about 20 to 30 grams below the amount of protein I need every day and most of my calories were coming from carbs and dairy. Instead of making any big sweeping dietary changes, I am just going to focus on eating more protein such as Chicken Breasts, Hard Boiled Eggs, Jerky, Protein Shakes, etc. (see below for examples of good sources of protein). Eating more protein will automatically crowd out the calories from the carbs and dairy. Spiritually, Protein is a grounding food and helps to root us energetically. I’ve been feeling like maybe my Root Chakra was a little unstable lately so grounding will help that too.

Protein quotes

ACTION
The action this week is to check-in with your diet. Our dietary needs change as we age. Are you getting the nutrients your body needs?

A quick way to figure out how much protein you should be eating is to multiply your weight by .36. If you would like to see how much of each nutrient you need each day, you can use a food tracker app like www.myfitnesspal.com. It automatically tells you how much you need based upon your height and weight. Another resource is the USDA DRI Calculator for Healthcare Professionals located at https://fnic.nal.usda.gov/fnic/dri-calculator/index.php. The below screen shot is also linked to the site. You just put your information in the form and it will tell you what you need.

Queen Of Pentacles ~ Blue Love Poetry

Queen Of Pentacles Art

Queen Of Pentacles – Blue Love Poetry
Come into
The light
And free
Your truth
Say it out loud
And release
It off your chest
Put it into the air
Give life
And energy
To its divine creation
We will always
Love you
I heard
Whispered in my ear
As I laid in dreamland

The high priestess
Sitting on a throne
Of Sorrow
Called within my heart
She beckoned me
To step forth
Out of darkness
And allow
My deepest
Hope and wishes
My most private desires
To be placed
In front of the
Confident king
As the gift of light
The light of my soul

The Empress
Within me
Commanded me to
Work hard
On righting my soul
To be in perfect
Alignment
With the
Flow of the Universe
She called on me to
Right my soul
To receive the beautiful light
Of love
Shining from a
Blossoming heart
Align myself
And allow a king
To come forward
To a queen

The Queen
Within me
Grew out of sorrow
To embody
Compassion and empathy
Transforming pain
Into strength
She stepped out
Of the shadows
Into the universal light
Of self love
She transformed

My King
Move with me
Through growth and
Transition
Meet me
Down the way
On the road
And transform
With me
Join me down road
Where we will
Meet again
Not as the wounded soldiers
Of our past
But as the
Queen and King
We stepped out
Of the shadows to be
Meet me
Down the way
Take your seat
Next to me
As a King

NOTE
The images of Kings and Queens have been in my head. I’ve had some crazy dreams the last few days too. I do like the mental image of growing into a King and a Queen 👸

Today is my birthday. It’s a weird day. Nothing worked out as I planned it this year. I still took today off from work for a “me” day since I am still a bit stressed out by professional stuff. No matter what choice I make, I will be starting a new job on April 1st – I am just not sure which one it will be 😂😂 This situation is really complicated and involves three different groups now! So much office politics it’s crazy. I am trying to ride the wave and hope for the best. I will say this crazy situation zapped my motivation and I am not really enjoying being in the office these days. Perhaps once things settle down and I know for sure what’s going to happen, I will be re-energized by a new opportunity🤞For now, I am just trying to keep my head above water and not get depressed because no matter what happens — on 4/1/19 I am starting a new job – somewhere 😂😂

Oh, and my official board certification for Holistic Health Practitioner arrived today; this made me happy 😊

AADP

Loving Kindness Prayer💙
May you be safe
May you be healthy
May you be happy
May you be loved

Self Care Sunday – Equanimity

Equanimity

This Self Care Sunday I’ve taken a step back to evaluate why I have been feeling extremely fatigued in recent weeks. This brought me straight to a lesson about Equanimity.

Equanimity is defined as being calm and even tempered. Spiritually it translates into having both mental calmness and clarity and being able to find happiness regardless of circumstance or situation.

Equanimity

I’ve surrendered to my body’s need for rest. I’ve been extremely fatigued lately. It seems like when I am not working, I am resting and sleeping 😴 😂It’s getting old! 😂I’ve always needed a lot of sleep but I am feeling a bit more fatigued than usual in recent weeks.

Well, one reason I am feeling fatigue is due to stress. I’ve been in a stressful situation at work. I’ve been caught in the middle of office politics. While I was handling this pretty good for a few weeks, it has gone on too long. The professional limbo and uncertainty is causing me nothing but anxiety now. It’s making me tired 😴

Another reason I am so exhausted lately is age related. My body is in transition. I haven’t come out the other side of Menopause yet so I am on the hormonal roller coaster. I will be turning 52 on Thursday and I am starting to feel 52 in some ways. I’ve always needed more rest than others so I am trying to be patient and surrender as my body tries to find homeostasis. To be on the safe side, I made all of my annual doctor appointments for the next month just to double check my blood work. However, I am betting it is just stress and the dreaded “change” wearing me out 😴😂

When I left work on Thursday, I felt like a head cold was trying to get a hold on me and on Friday morning I hurt my arm while doing lateral extensions with dumbbells. (OUCH)🤬 This means my body needs me to slow down to heal. I’ve been focusing on getting extra rest and sleep to kill of the impending head cold while I’ve been icing my shoulder. Perhaps it’s ok for me to sleep all day today😴I am not depressed or unhappy just tired and sore and binge watching “Veep” because it’s light and funny 😆 At this moment, equanimity begins with me maintaining a calm mind to help my body release and heal.

Equanimity

Truthfully, I am in such a state of surrender to my body’s need for rest and sleep, I would cancel all of my plans and stay home If I felt like that was the best thing for me to do. It really doesn’t matter. I am not attached one way or another. I just want to do what is best for my body. Actually, this is a great place to be. This is called Equamitity and I’ve spent my entire adult life hoping to achieve this awareness.

Equanimity

ACTION

Can you reflect on Equanimity? Perhaps google it and read up on it a bit. Perhaps see where in your life you can embrace it and embody it? Can you practice non-attachment and find peace regardless of the situations or outcomes?

Peace in our surrender

NOTE So, I’ve had this image of a well in my mind for some reason. I keep picturing reaching in the well and filling up a cup with water. I started thinking what if it was love instead of water in the well? Hmm? What if I AM a well of love? At the same time, I also had the image of my Blue Love in my mind.

Life has certainly been serious lately. I’ve been so preoccupied with personal growth, working on myself and trying to nail down my career path, that there has been no room for fun or flirtation. I miss having fun with Blue Love. I sure would enjoy some quality flirtious fun with my favorite playmate🙏😂😇 Things were simpler in the past. I am thankful for all the blessings and growth I am experiencing now. I know I needed this time for myself to heal and grow but I also miss the time we were close together and could just have fun.

Loving Kindness Prayer💙
May you be safe
May you be healthy
May you be happy
May you be loved

Self Care Sunday ~ Grieving is self care

Rumi 20 years and her death is still my reason. My sister died on March 9, 1999 around 4:30am with me and other family members by her side after two weeks on life support and a battle with a terminal illness. During those two weeks, I sat with her. I talked to her. I read the newspaper to her. But mostly I sat in silent prayer. Honoring the beautiful soul that made such an impact on my life. When it became clear to me that it was end, I made her promises and those promise are still the reasons for my choices today.

I promised her I would live the life I was capable of living. I didn’t live up to that promise for a long time. I promised her I would live up to the beauty she saw within me. I was so blinded by self doubt and bad influences in my life that I couldn’t see myself as beautiful. I also made sure I thanked her. Anything good that is me is there because she loved me and believe in me. I am who I am because that beautiful soul loved me and took care of me since the day I was born.

How exactly do you commemorate the 20th anniversary of the most painful day of your life? I am honoring her by finally living the life I am capable of living. No more playing small. I am making choices that are authentically aligned with my truth now. That’s the only way I can live now. Emotionally, I recognize a need for support so I went out to dinner with friends last night (Friday). It was a beautiful night out. I am going to philly for a day with the family on Sunday. Today, Saturday, I am honoring my body’s need to slow down. I am also allowing myself to feel melancholy for what I lost. I am reflecting and being thankful for how I’ve grown and changed in recent years. I am remembering where I came from with gratitude. I am reaffirming my commitment to embodying love and light as I moved forward in this life. Mostly, I am just missing my sister and wondering how the hell it still hurts so bad after 20 years. The pain of grief never really goes away. You just become desensitized to it. It’s like the chronic knee pain you’ve learned to live with as you get older. I’m still walking but my heart and soul are wounded. So today is a day for me to just allow myself to honor that feeling without pressing myself to be happy or social.

On a positive note, I received wonderful news on Thursday about a career related situation. It looks like the strategic risk I took a few weeks ago is going to work out better that I even imagined. It’s partly official but not totally buttoned up yet. I can’t celebrate yet. The dust should settle in the next week or two. A new beginning will hopefully be on my horizon by the end of March. The best part of this is — even if it does go sideways, I can live with it. I did the right thing for myself and for my Program. If I end up back where I used to work after all of this — well, that must be where I am meant to be. This positive news is helping to keep my spirits balanced on a tough emotional day.

Grief

ACTION
This week’s action is to honor where you are. Feel what you need to feel. Cry if you need to cry. Hit bottom if it’s the only way for you to rise up to the top again. Show yourself some love and compassion today.

What’s My WHY

What’s My Why

As I sit in professional limbo, I know one thing is for sure…I refuse to make an ego-based or an emotional decision✊

The ego and emotions have no place in making a strategic decision that will affect my career in the long term. My ego would jump at a promotion as a trophy while my emotions would pull me back to my old group/job because they feel like home. The key is for me to practice non-attachment to any outcome as I explore options and let things play out a little bit longer. I just need to steady my nerves to do this 😂 Whatever is for my highest good will rise up in my soul once I detach my emotions and ego from decision making process. Everything is always working out for my highest good even if it works out differently than I expected.

Every conversation I’ve had about this just muddied the water for me even more. I was getting myself confused because I never been one to follow external guidance. I now trust my own inner guidance system more for decisions that affect my life. I was in information and emotional overload which was making the choice more complicated.

Feeling conflicted and confused, I jumped into a hot shower last night. As the hot water pounded on my tight neck & shoulder muscles, I asked myself “What’s My WHY?”

My WHY is GROWTH. Growth is my word! I want potential for long term diversified growth opportunities in my future. This decision isn’t just about what I want to do today; it’s about how I want to position myself for long term growth in the future. Getting back to my WHY cleared up all the confusion and uncertainity I was having. The choice became clear! By the end of the night, I was relaxed and felt like the heaviness lifted.

What’s your why

For now, I need to see how the ball I put into motion plays out first; they advised I they should have a decision within two weeks (if not sooner). There are variables at play and I still feel I did the right thing. I just need to wait and see how it plays out. I also have a preferred contingency plan in place. If that goes sideways too, I still have a job to go back to 😂 It’s all good! I am ok with whatever happens because I know I lived and acted in alignment with my truth and I did what is right for the program I am representing. Wherever I end up, is where I am meant to be 😊

Every choice, every decision has a lesson in it. This one is teaching me patience. It’s also teaching me to TRUST to my intuition and use strategic thinking to evaluate choices instead of my ego. I can’t be reactive and emotional with this decision.

After all of that, I slept great last night and had a visitation dream from my deceased sister. She always comes in my dreams when I need reassurance and comfort😇✌️

If you need to make a big decision in your life, try using strategic logic to help you make the decision. Sit with yourself long enough to observe if your ego or emotions are driving your decisions. Can you practice non-attachment? Can you consider strategically aligning your choice with what you want in the future rather than reacting to the demands of your ego or attachments of your emotions? Seems to be working for me 😊✨

PS: I am feeling like a Blue Love Poem is brewing… Stop back Friday for a Blue Love note💙😊✨

Strategy

As Always – I will be including the Loving Kindness Prayer on every post going forward because I believe love can and will triump over evil. Light will prevail over darkness. I believe we need to put LOVE into the Universe. Love each other…

Self Care Sunday – I Know The Way Out

Art tree

In 2011 I walked away from a life, a lifestyle, circle of friends that had a toxic hold over me. It was one of the most stressful times of my life because I was constantly attacked for being different from them and for not conforming to their ideologies. I was under constant pressure to fall in line to the “Group Think”. I was a round peg hanging around with square pegs trying to put myself into square holes with them. Living in that toxic energy everyday where the people surrounding me where trying to keep me small, almost destroyed me and actually made sick…very sick.

Eight years later and after surviving that hard transition I am in a wonderful place in my life. That hard transition led to wonderful inward journey and sparked many positive changes in my life, I am thriving. I am free from the manipulation. My self confidence is back. I am now standing in my authentic my personal power.

As I look back, I can see God wanted me to let go of that life for a long time. God had bigger plans for me than I had for myself…but I kept holding on. I kept holding on because I was afraid of the unknown and perhaps I was a bit gun shy because other changes I made didn’t work out the way I thought they would. The tighter I held on, the worst it got. Then God brought me to my knees in burnout, depression and illness.

Dear Universe

When God forced me to my knees, I finally learned to stayed there a while and rest. I didn’t rally. I didn’t force myself to get back up. I didn’t play nice. I withdrew and checked-in with myself. I prayed and evaluated my options. After taking some time to strategize things, I made a big move…I changed my life, I changed my lifestyle and removed myself from that social circle. It wasn’t an easy time of my life but going through that struggle made me stronger for everything else than has come after it.

It’s been my experience any time God wanted me to make a big change in my life, he made me as uncomfortable as possible. He broke me until I surrendered into the flow of the Universe. He broke me until I trusted him to show me the new path.

Trust me…Not walking away sooner almost killed me and certainly broke my spirit. But the question is… why was I fighting to stay somewhere I was no longer meant to be and possibly no longer truly wanted? Why was I allowing myself to be beaten down? The truth is…I was so stuck in the middle of the storm I couldn’t see I was in a storm. I couldn’t find a way out. It was like being in the middle of hurricane. You think you are ok as long as you don’t venture to far either way but each day I became smaller and part of the fire of my spirit slipped away. I couldn’t believe something better was out there for me because my self confidence was shattered and the judgment of others had me doubting my every move. I allowed the perceptions of the small minded people around me to become my truth. I allowed the “fight” and the victimization to become my story.

I can’t tell you how I finally broke the cycle. I am not sure what rose up in me to finally fight for myself. I don’t know the exact moment I chose myself but I do know…My life is dramatically different and better because I surrendered. I am better because I finally let go. I am better because I made a new life and chose a new path for myself.

This topic has been on my mind the last few days. The current situation I find myself in work is challenging but I am NOT out of my depth. I am well within the capacity of my inner strength and courage. I know I am brave enough to see how it plays out. I am a strategic thinker and risk taker. You bet your butt I have like three contingency plans in place 😂😂✌️ I also secured support to mitigate potential roadblocks. I am using the leverage I have appropriately and respectfully. I am being careful how I speak and which words I use. I am feeling hopeful that It’s going to work out in my favor. I actually saw some positive affects already but I still don’t know what job I will end up in yet 😂 I’ve surrendered…I took a stand for something I believed in and that was the right choice for me. If I lose, I lose. I can live with it. If I lose, God has something else in mind for me. Trust me, I’ve already handicapped the various outcomes 😂✌️This was a very strategic well thought out risk for me to take. Honestly, I would not have taken this kind of risk a few years ago. I would not have had the courage or confidence in myself to believe I could affect a change like this nor would I have the faith to know I will be ok no matter the outcome. When people spend all day telling you are that are you are small, you start to believe them.

Marianne Williamson quote

The other reason I was thinking about this is a friend is in a tough situation and I am concerned about her. Because of the nature of our official relationship I can’t offer to coach her. However, my unofficial observation is it may be time for her to surrender, let go and give herself a new beginning. While I did encourage her to explore other options, I stopped short of saying it was time to surrender because I believe that’s a realization she needs to make herself. I do honestly believe God may be making her uncomfortable because it’s time for her to let go and make a move. The only thing I can really do in this situation is be a supportive nurturing friend to her while she figures this out. As I do care about her very much, I reached out to a mutual friend who I know can help her. I just wanted to be sure he knew I was genuinely concerned. I believe she needs a coach not a savior or a fixer; I know he will do that for her. Hmm, maybe he and I should be Executive Coaching partners and start a business together??? LOL 😘😉 See, I’m always strategizing 🙂

Head’s Up —- Mercury Retrograde starts Tuesday, March 5th and last until March 26th. This can be a time of technical snafus and communication errors. I typically experience mail issues, phone and clock problems, electrical stuff in the house(smoke alarms), calendar mix-ups and computer problems at work. If you need to sign contracts or possibly accept job offers (I hope 🤞), be SUPER careful with words and communications. Thank God my serious work conversations are out of the way. The ball is rolling so hopefully things should be ok. I also remind folks to be careful with facial expressions like eye rolls especially in meetings. This is also a good time to revisit, reflect, rememberances, rekindling and reunions. Reach out to a friend and catch up 😊 Mercury Retrograde doesn’t have to be a time to hide. Just think twice before sending snarky emails and texts and choose your words carefully.

Mercury retrograde meme

ACTION
The Action this week is just to remember we are all in this life together. Look out for one of another. Help people when you can. Give support to those you care about and, if you are called, take a stand for something or someone you believe in.

Final thoughts…

When God drops you to your knees, stay there a while. Take the time to rest, heal and nurture yourself back to wellness. I can’t remember where I heard the below little story but I still love it…

God dropped me to my knees in a hole of depression and anxiety but guess what? I surrendered, let go and now…

I know the way out now… 😊✌️💙

As Always – I will be including the Loving Kindness Prayer on every post going forward because I believe love can and will triump over evil. Light will prevail over darkness. I believe we need to put LOVE into the Universe. Love each other…

Remember to put a little love in the world by saying the Loving Kindness Prayer for someone special. I often like to say it for special people in my life as well for groups such as my family, friends, coworkers and all beings.

Loving Kindness Prayer💙
May you be safe

Self Care Sunday ~ Divine Timing

Pink Himalayan Salt Stone Massage

Self Care has been focused this week on taming stress, anxiety and tension. I celebrated Friday night happy hour at my Chiropractor’s office with an adjustment and a Pink Himalayan Salt Stone Massage. I needed to get tension and stress out of my neck and shoulder muscles. It felt like I was carrying the weight of the world on me and I needed to unload.

Friday quotes

I’ve been seeing the same Massage Therapist for two years. She is also an esthetician and shares an office with my Chiropractor. I grew up with family member owing a day spa so I’ve been on massage tables since I was high school. In my younger years, I would just go about anywhere for a Massage without realizing that receiving a massage is an exchange of energy. It’s essential to be sure the person who is massage your body has good positive energy 💚 In the past, I’ve traveled to spas and getaway weekends with girls friends to get massages and facials. I don’t do that anymore. I prefer to stay with the massage therapist that I know, trust and call a friend. Her style is very nurturing and her energy is balanced and amazing. She is very caring and respectful when she massages my body. I find that comforting and trust-worthy. She knows my body. She understand my concerns. She respects my wishes. When I am laying naked on her table, I am safe. That says a lot. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars in the past at spas for the “spa” experience only to find comfort, safety and trust right in my Chiropractor’s office 15 minutes from home. I now see her every two months for Pink Himalayan Salt Stone Massages which helps with neck and shoulder tension. My TMJ has been way more manageable since I started doing this. It feels good to know I can trust her and totally relax while I am on her table.

Pink Himalayan Salt Benefits

For those not familiar but curious about Pink Himalayan Salt Stone massage, here’s what happens…My therapist heats the stones and dips them in Lavendar infused Coconut Oil before running the stones along muscles in all areas of the body. Her style integrates philosophies of Eastern medicine, Lomi Lomi, Shiatsu, Swedish massage, thermal therapy and salt therapies to create an array of possible benefits: Increase blood circulation, Reduce inflammation, Improve sleep, Induce deep relaxation and Improves overall sense of well-being – plus the hot stones feel amazing and really get the knots out! After the massage I had sushi for dinner and slept great on Friday night. I am always a little tired and very relaxed the day after a massage. I pushed through it Saturday morning and knocked stuff off the “to do” list early in the morning. I felt my body slowing down around noon and decided to retreat to the coziness of my bed Saturday afternoon with my iPad to write this blog post. I love my bedroom. It really is beautiful and comfy 🙂

I also bought a new book on Leadership by General Stanley McCrystal. I prefer to hold a real book in my hands than read on my Kindle so I bought the hard cover book. The brightness of the reading on the Kindle bothers my eyes when I read at night. General McCrystal asserts you don’t need to take Leadership training to be a Leader! I’m a couple of chapters in and I am enjoying it. It’s making me think. It’s not only an exploration of leadership styles, successes and failures it’s also chuck full of history. I’m learning stuff 😂 It’s a thick book so I will probably be reading this all week plus I need to think about stuff after I read it to absorb it 😊Since I plan to take an Executive Coaching course sometime in the future so I can add that service to my Coaching services, I like to read books on Leadership. It also helps me in my full time job too.

Leadership Books: General McCrystal

I trust my body when it tells me it needs comfort and rest. I listen when it tells me it needs to be still instead of “do”. I am going to Philly for the day on Sunday and know I will be driving a lot tomorrow so I am enjoying some downtime before a busy day tomorrow.

I am still in a transition at work. After I rejected an offer last week, my acting Director asked me to give her a little time to strategize an alternative. I was told the other day, they are indeed looking at alternatives for me so the deal isn’t dead yet 🙂 Here’s the thing, I TRUST this Acting Director that I’ve only known for a year — more than I ever trusted other managers I’ve known for ten years. I do truly believe she is on my side but I also know she will do what is best and most ethical for business. I respect that. I can’t ask for more from her. This situation is requiring me to be really patient. It’s hard not knowing how something is going to work out. I second guessed my decision a little earlier in the week until I remembered I knew in my heart and in my gut the job I rejected, the way it was structured, was not right for me. I trusted my intuition and I still feel good about that decision. I see now it’s not really about WHO I work for. I would be fine working in either organization. My intuition has been telling me this transition is about ensuring I am doing work that I find satisfying and fulfilling. It is also about ensuring I am fairly compensated for my level of responsibility and skills. I am TRUSTING my intuition on this one.

My lesson this week has been to TRUST the Universe and believe in Divine Timing. Divine Timing is the spiritual concept that things happen when they are meant to happen. You can’t rush something. Things happen in a sequence for a divine purpose.

I’ve been using these affirmations to keep my thoughts positive.
✨ I trust everything is always working out for my highest good.
✨ I trust my intuition
✨ I trust my body’s wisdom
✨ I have complete trust and faith in the Universe

Divine Timing

ACTION:
The Action for this week is to simply trust and have faith on the Divine Timing in your life. Work on trusting your own intuition. Practice patience and have faith. Consider using affirmations throughout the day to stay positive. You can use the affirmations I list above if you like, or make one for yourself. Remember…Affirmations are positive in nature; they affirm that something is true.

Diving Timing quote

As Always – I will be including the Loving Kindness Prayer on every post going forward because I believe love can and will triump over evil. Light will prevail over darkness. I believe we need to put LOVE into the Universe. Love each other…

Remember to put a little love in the world by saying the Loving Kindness Prayer for someone special. I often like to say it for special people in my life as well for groups such as my family, friends, coworkers and all beings.

Loving Kindness Prayer💙
May you be safe
May you be healthy
May you be happy
May you be loved

I claim love as my vibration for 2019.

Fire Starter ~ Blue Love Poetry
May I
Light your fire
May I
Strike the match
To inspire you
With love, support and encouragement
To grow, expand and create

Won’t you come with me
On this journey
Of growth and
Self-discovery
Will you join me in
Exploring the depths
Of our souls
Will you create
Magic
Through the fire
Of my love for you
Will you
Excavate your truth
Through the warmth
Of my empathetic compassion
Can you reach and stretch
Stretch yourself
Beyond all of your
Imagined limits
To find
The highest good
Through your
Connection to me
Your soul
Was called to
Use my love
As a light
Use my fire
As your energetic force
Use me to inspire you
To break through
The comfortable limits
That restrict you
Use me to inspire you
To find out
How far you can reach

What if you
Were just now
Getting started

What if today
Was a new beginning
For us

What if today
We made a new Soul Contract
To love and help each
As we reach
For our
Highest Good Lives

What if
Today was the time
You were supposed
To breakout
Of darkness into
The brightest expression
Of God’s perfect love
For you
Through me

What if
My soul
Was sent
By your Guides to
Shine the light for you
And help you
Set your vision
On something bigger
Than you could ever image

I ask you
To opened yourself up
To all possibilities
And consider
What could you achieve
If you were limitless

May I
Light your fire
May I
Strike the match
To inspire you
To imagine a life without limits
Can you see it
Can you feel it

May I strike
The match
Of Creation
And Spark the
Fire of our desire
In you

May I be your
Fire Starter
