Leaving my mark for the year
The Week of Sept 9-14
I asked the Mermaids and Dolphins Oracle Cards for messages about the upcoming week. These are the 3 cards that showed up:
Allow Yourself to Receive: "Allow others to give you loving care. Receive without guilt or apologies."
Positive Energy: Surround yourself with positive people and situations, and avoid negativity.
Friendship: Make a play date with one or more friends.
So, with all of the emotional sensitivity and uncertainty in the air right now, combined with so much negativity in the media about world issues, we need to break it down and focus upon ourselves. This is not a selfish task, because your well being is going to allow you to serve others more fully in the end. So it's a win-win! Balance is key, which is where that flow of giving and receiving comes in. So many lightworkers love to give, give, give, and nurture, nurture, nurture, and it almost feels unnatural to have someone do something for us or we feel bad for needing the help or asking for help. Know that you are not alone and you do not have to go through this phase of life alone. Surround yourself with loving people, preferably like minded people because you may be feeling a bit sensitive to those who will otherwise challenge you this week. Take some time to engage in laughter and lighthearted energy with others! Let them help to boost your energy~ I know many of us are used to the role of boosting others energies, but it's okay to need to be on the receiving end. So, keep your chin up, stay focused on the positive and the blessings, and engage in a balance in all of your relationships.
Wishing you the best this week~ oh yes, today's message is also about prosperity so trust that waves of all things good are on their way to you-- they exist inside of you always. Allow them to manifest in your physical reality.
Well, September 1st is here! I was pulling the daily oracle card and had a feeling that September is going to be a power month. It is going to be all about rising above fears and obstacles, being assertive, standing up for what you believe in, and being true to yourself along the way. If your idea of success and power does not involve love, then seek out a new definition of success and power.
It is time to take a hold of the reigns of your life and go for what you desire. Be compassionate with yourself and others. Be gentle with yourself when little bumps in the road occur, but really go for it! Hit the ground running. Take that leap. Make that jump. Trust your inner wisdom-- you DO know what to do. Listen to the voice of your Self-- What do you truly want to do with this one wild and precious life? This life is a gift! Are you fully embracing it?
You will find power in balance. Allow yourself to laugh, play, cry, pray, share, give, receive, and be present. Be kind to you and others.
Endings and beginnings will always be happening, as is the current of life. It's all what you make it! Life is inherently good. You are good. See that spark of creativity in life and fuel it in yourself to let life and love radiate from you! Create! Help others with your gifts and ask for others if you need it.
What does being powerful mean to you?
The energy coming in feels very good. Do not let any chaos around you distract you or make you feel like you need to suffer. You are not a victim. You are not the mistakes you have made. Each day is a new day- and this month has plenty of them for you to get up and try again!!
Have faith. Trust. Seek out the good in yourself and in all situations and people that you cross paths with.
All is well.
I hope you embrace this month and allow love and inspiration to enfold you. Breathe it in. Breathe life in. Take a moment today and every day to just Be. To sit, to listen, to look, to feel, to taste, to hear.
This is your life.
What will you do with your one wild and precious life?
Year of Faith
Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul.
Well the new year is almost 2 months in~ Today's date 02/22 and in angel numbers 222 means "Have faith. Everything’s going to be all right. Don’t worry about anything, as this situation is resolving itself beautifully for everyone involved."
Wow! I how synchronstic :) That number sequence meaning fits with the title that I chose, without realizing that they would have such a similar meaning! Nice one angels :)
I feel that this year really is a year of faith. I know for myself (and others as well, from personal conversations) that, in looking ahead, there is a lot of uncertainty this year. One thing that IS certain, is that there are a lot of changes in store. Personally, I'll be completing my Bachelor of Education in April and really have no idea where I will be moving for employment after that.
With uncertainty can come discomfort and fears, because many of us like to be in control. I think that there are two keys to feeling at peace with what is to come. Firstly, loving one self. This is a huge message for everyone this year. Love yourself first. It's not a selfish act, it's a compassionate act towards yourself. You need to love yourself enough to say goodbye to the old and welcome the new because you will then KNOW that you deserve a better life. You were meant to be extraordinary and you need to have faith in yourself and confidence to move forward. Secondly, faith. Faith in yourself but faith in the Divine, as well. Because not knowing can be comfortable if you trust that the Creator is going to bring you to exactly the right people, at the right place, at the right time. We need to trust that what is unfolding before us is for our highest good. And with self love and faith/trust, we can be co-creators in our existance, because we expect and accept that which IS best for us, and we won't settle. I get so frustrated when I see people settling in life, even though I know it's none of my business-- other than we are One and I wish for all humanity to set their sights high and achieve their very best. Maybe that's the teacher in me meeting up with the spirituality in me? hehe
What have I done towards loving myself more this year? Well I have finally set my determination towards a commitment to a healthier lifestyle. This is a much needed, long procrastinated goal that I finally feel really motivated for. My first step has been changing my eating habits towars making healthier choices. And it's working! Thank God for showing me results, which is keeping me motivated. I am 2 pounds away from having lost 30lbs! yay!!! Lots to go yet, but I'm on my way and two steps ahead of where I was 'yesterday', so it's all good and I'm very happy with myself for these positive changes!!
I'm having faith that doors to job opportunities that are the best for me will open and that I'll recognize them when they do. I have faith that the Divine are shining a healing light on all areas of my life and all areas of my loved ones lives. We all need to realize that a part of loving ourselves, is accepting help from others. Yes, quiet time alone in meditation and centering oneself on peace is so important, but so is accepting help when needed and not feeling like we are alone. We're not alone~ the angels walk with you. Ask them for guidance today.
I have infinite love and gratitude for all who I cross paths with, for I know that they are a piece of a bigger picture. I extend warm gratitude and love to all who come to this website and who assist me in allowing Inspire Love to grow so that I can serve and help those who come to me for
2012~ thanks for the memories!
Well, where did 2012 go? I obviously didn't keep up with my blogging, but that just goes to show how busy the year was!! Soooo many changes & I'm grateful that I'm able to view them with a positive light :)
I find that as December comes to an end, I always end up looking both back and forward. Reviewing the year, I'm feeling so blessed at how far I've come.
I completed my first full year back at university, I was able to move out of an apartment where I lived for 5 years, was placed exactly where I needed to be for my internship, completed that internship, and am now ready to head back to the city to finish my degree. Every one of my siblings left their jobs to move and seek new employment and new homes. We've never rented so many U-hauls in one year! :) All of the moves have been a blessing, I feel.
I have also experienced healing of my heart. I've been able to overcome past hurts that led to insecurities and trust issues. I'm so eternally gratefully to have met a man that taught me that it's safe to open up my heart fully to love again and to break down the walls that prevent me from experiecing love. He is a true treasure & by far my happiest moment of the year was my 30th birthday (something I had actually dreaded for a couple of years)! I'll never forget his surprise visit as he walked through the doors with flowers, a smile, and my heart.
So many events leading up until now feel like little pieces of the puzzle that truly had to fit together to bring us all to where we are today.
It's so much clearer to me now that painful experiences in the past were truly blessings in disguise. I'm much more able to see the lessons in past relationships and experiences. Events that I thought were detours from my path were truly just stepping stones~ necessary ones at that! How can I dislike anything that created the person that I am in this moment? I can definately look back with a smile now.
And hey- the world did not end!! In fact, it feels like it is newly beginning for those who are gaining a more enlightened perspective and awakening into their True Selves.
2013 will definately bring more changes still. As I am reading a post on my FB page about how people would describe the year, it's not lost on me that changes have been very difficult on some people & that there are many struggling with the shifts that are happening. I KNOW that 2013 will bring blessings to all, I just pray that everyone will embrace the ability to recognize them & give thanks. The world needs an attitude shift and it really happens one person at a time.
For me personally, I'll be going back to University and completing my degree in April. Since I don't know what the future holds for me from that point on I'm holding onto faith and trust once again that I'll go exactly where I'm meant to be; including the best location where I can meet the people I need to meet for my highest good and have the experiences that are going to help me to continue to grow into the best version of me.
I Am blessed.
I Am emerging still and I Am ready for what life has to offer me.
I believe the best IS yet to come and that is soooo incredibly exciting~ my heart is filled with joy and I radiate that love to you and hope to inspire a little love in your day.
Thanks for stopping by my website and checking out my blog :)
I'm truly grateful for the people who visit my website and who are a part of my facebook page. The number of people there has been really growing lately and I'm so excited about that! :0) I've had a few different ideas swirling in my mind about what to do next.... contemplating doing video readings or trying to figure out how to create a video meditation....also thinking about reviving an old idea of a 30 day Inspire Love Challenge that includes daily tasks. I'm really curious to see if someone would participate throughout the entire 30 days and if they feel more positive afterwards or whatever it is they feel/experience! :) Even if nobody decides to participate, I'd love to do it for myself! :)
I've always wanted to make my own oracle/guidance cards or inspirational affirmation cards, but I'm not quite sure how? I tried doing home-made ones "back in the day" (aka in 2005) but I'd like something more professional looking. Hmmmm I think I'll ask around and see. :) I'd love to use my photography and then some inspired messages to help people out. Or I could also get out the ol' paintbrush and create some artwork to put on the cards. :0) I looooooove creative projects. I truly believe that being creative and expressing yourself artistically, no matter what level of talent you have, is really healing and great for the soul!
Man, if I could get a job just teaching English and Art, that would be awwwwwesome lol
Another thought crossed my mind this morning-- "I'm ready to be me". What does this mean? Ready to embrace my true self, let my true self shine, love myself unconditionally, treat myself with respect, let people in, let them see parts of me that I've been too shy to reveal before, to be bold, daring, courageous etc.... :) Sounds so simple, but yet people in general seem to have such a hard time listening to their Inner Self and realizing that everything they are looking for outside of themselves exists within ---love, acceptance, compassion, gratitude, playfulness, enchantment, miracles...etc....etc...
Lots of thoughts :0)
It's really interesting doing readings for a wide range of people in a short period of time because there is usually a common theme amongst all people. Right now it seems to be that there is a lot of desires to change career paths. Romance is also highlighted. I'm also seeing the message a lot about balancing....allowing oneself to give AND receive...and placing yourself completely in the present moment and finding joy NOW--not looking back, not depending on future events,, just genuinely being at peace and experiencing joy in the present! :) Of course, also releasing your cares and worries to a higher power. We hold onto so much crap! AH! Why do we do this to ourselves? lol So just let it go! With this full moon coming up, it will be an amazing time for releasing and shedding old parts of ourselves!
:0) What are you waiting for?
Be the Pres
I had to continue my thoughts from my previous post.
Everyone is receiving a real push to make changes to their lives. The Universe really seems to be strongly encouraging everyone to finally surrender and release the past. "Let go of what no longer serves you" whether it is old guilt, fears, shame, resentment, unforgiveness, or negative thought patterns and habits.
I came across a quote from Robert Holden's presentation at last years "I Can Do It" Conference in Toronto that really makes sense to me....
"I am not my past
I am not my heartaches
No single failure is an entire biography
Mistakes are moments, not name plates.
Pain is an experience, not an identity.
That which suffers is not me.
May the truth set me free."
Beautiful. I love this. We are NOT our mistakes. We can not let our experiences belittle us, we must allow them to grow. Somehow we need to find it in ourselves to accept that past, learn from it, allow ourselves to grow, and leave that experience in the past so that we can move foreward. Everyone makes mistakes and too many people beat themselves up for them.
That which suffers is not me.
I Am a piece of the Divine. Perfect, whole, and complete as I was created.
That which suffers is my ego.
And the ego can be a real pain in the butt!! lol
We need to embrace our experiences. Embrace our present and see the positive~ that in truth, all is well. In this moment I am safe. I move forward in peace, knowing that I am not alone, I am being shown the way, and that which I require for my highest good comes to me now.
I breathe out which no longer serves me. I let it go. I open my arms to the new, exciting experiences that are here for me now and that are unfolding before me. :0)
I embrace a new life for myself.
And truly, when you make a decision to do this, magic happens! And you will feel WONDERFUL!
I wish for you the strength and courage and peace of mind th
It is May already! Wow!
This is my first blog posting of the year! lol Time is flying by, so if the old cliche is true, then I must be having fun. :0) I'm actually having the time of my life.
I will paraphrase a quote that really resonates with me right now ~ I may not have gone where I thought I would, but now I know that I have ended up exactly where I was meant to be.
There are moments in my past, as I am sure you can relate, that I felt were a waste of time or just not necessarily, whether it was a painful experience (such as the ending of a relationship), or perhaps exhausting (looong hours of photography work), or just something that seems like a waste of money (like getting a personal loan to try my hand at doing reiki/reflexology/readings for a career, which got me about 2 customers a month lol or getting an Arts Degree in university that I felt was a waste of time/money for many years). Now, I can accept and trust that all of these steps were necessary to get me where I am today. My earlier education experience is going to now benefit me in both experience and pay raises. My photography career will help me to improve literacy and creativity in my future classrooms. And my past business ventures have taught me to look at all of the options and possiblities before proceeding.
Most of all, I am so so grateful that I listened to my heart and went back to university. I can't even regret having waited so long because the people I have met in the past year have been such wonderful additions in my life. Everything has been a blessing in disguise that has now revealed itself. It is so amazing to be around like-minded people. I also know now that my years of experience have helped me to gain the confidence I need to proceed now. And best of all, I have such a blissful feeling in my heart that I truly am exactly where I need to be at this moment in my life.
These feelings I am experiencing I have beleived in long before I experienced them. They are the reason why I try to promote positive thinking and taking chances, following your passions and inspirations, and creating the changes you need in your life to feel fulfilled and enjoy life to the fullest. These are the reasons why I truly love creating this page and spending time and energy on my inspire love facebook page.
It is also so heart warming to receive feedback from people that I cross paths with through my work with Inspire Love. Sometimes I prefer spending time on that fb page rather than my personal one! lol
Today I am sharing meditations from a Louise Hay book that I found. Her wisdom is so inspiring and uplifting and honest that it really touches my heart.
Here is one that I posted this morning....
Wonderful Experiences Now Enter My Life. I am Safe. I Pay Attention to the Good
I know that good resides in every moment and in every place, and that even the worst situation, a bit of goodness can be found. The loss of a job... or a loved one or my health brings me face to face with my biggest fears. It is
normal and natural that I experience these fears. Yet I know that nature abhors a vacuum. When one thing goes, then something else will come to take its place.
So I take a deep breath- or six- and trust that life always takes care of my needs. I am learning to trust. Life loves me and will never let me down. Only that which is for my highest good now occurs."
tis' the season!
Tis' the season to be jolly and joyous! I realize that the holiday season is not the best time of year for everyone, but to me it is my favourite. In particular I love Christmas Eve. It's not the materialistic side of Christmas that I love either-- it's the feeling in the air. I love the enchantment....love.... harmony...peace...overwhelming warm n fuzzies!! :) The music...the twinklin lights...being able to spend time with family--- love love love!
So, I do wish that you and yours can be Blessed with time together, that you get some time away from the hustle bustle of life and work.... and that as you are standing in line at a store to buy lots of presents...to remember those who are less fortunate...
It is such a season for reflection as well, with the end of a year and the beginning of the new one...so many wishes and dreams and expectations...perhaps fears as well as anticipations...
It is a good time to give thanks for the year that has passed and the blessings that are to come.
For those who are travelling-- I wish for you safe travels..let angels guide you.
Sending love and light to you all....
It's a new dawn, Its a new day.
You'll find here some of my thoughts, observations, readings, etc... Feel free to leave comments! :)
