Affirmations to RAISE Your Vibration

In Chapter 5 of my book, Life Is Just Another Class – One Soul’s Journey Through Past Life Regression, I describe my lifetime as a metaphysical teacher. In that life, I taught an interesting meditation class to young children in which we sat in a circle, held hands, and one at at time each student said a positive affirmation or positive, loving thought.

This continuous focus on various positive thoughts raises the vibration of each person. It actually feels like we are floating on a cloud when we finish.

AND THAT FEELS INCREDIBLY AWESOME!

Through this memory, I re-remembered how to teach this meditation class. Here are some of the positive thoughts and affirmations used in my classes. Love and Light to you! xoxoxox

Allow Your Own Inner Light to Guide You

Think of your favorite flower to appreciate the beauty of nature

Feel the calmness on a quiet sunny day
Find a rainbow and live your world of dreams

Love is a symbol of eternity

When we feel love and kindness towards others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace.

There is no harvest for the heart alone.

The seed of love must be eternally re-sown

Falling in love.
Laughing so hard your face hurts.
A special glance.
Getting mail from a friend.
Taking a drive on a pretty road.
Hearing your favorite song on the radio.
Lying in bed listening to the rain outside.
Hot towels fresh out of the dryer.
A bubble bath.
Giggling.
A good conversation.
The beach
Running through sprinklers.
Laughing for absolutely no reason at all.
Having someone tell you that you’re beautiful
Friends.
Waking up and realizing you still have a few hours left to sleep.
Your first kiss
Making new friends

Spending time with old friends
Playing with a new puppy
Sweet dreams
Hot chocolate
Road trips with friends
Swinging on swings.
Making chocolate chip cookies
Having friends send you homemade cookies.
Holding hands with someone you care about.
Running into an old friend

Watching the expression on someone’s face as they open a present from you.
Watching the sunrise.
Getting out of bed every morning and being grateful for another beautiful day.
Knowing that somebody misses you.
Getting a hug from someone you care about deeply.
Knowing you’ve done the right thing, no matter what other people think.

Every moment of your life, including this one, is a fresh start.

People who miraculously come into your life for no apparent reason

The power of a touch

a smile

a kind word

a listening ear

an honest compliment

the smallest act of caring

My sun sets to rise again

Optimism is the foundation of courage

Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can

We can always breathe

Born to love

To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night

A bird flying gracefully across the sky

Raindrops pitter-pattering on the window

The grass swaying in the wind

A field of sunflowers

A rabbit nibbling on some clover

Seeing the first robin of spring

Receiving is allowing others to show their love by giving

Admiring a painting

Finding a lost treasure

Admiring a work of art

Random act of kindness

Arriving at a new destination

A random act of kindness

Achieving a goal, no matter how minute

Love is all we ever need

Heaven is pure bliss

A delicious bowl of ice cream with scrumptious toppings

Finding a feather from your angel

If you have beauty in your heart, the world will open to you, like a flower on a summer’s morning.

Breathing

Meditation

Silence

Greeting the sun

Feeling the sun warm your skin

Knowing that angels are nearby

Feeling the love

Feeling the love from your spirit guides

Getting a message or a sign from the other side

Enjoying the interaction of friends

Feeling unconditional love

I am abundant

Abundance comes to me easily

I am open to receive abundance of any kind

Life is abundant

Cherishing the little things

Enjoying the nature around us

Smelling a fragrant flower

Seeing a bird soar in the blue sky

Watching clouds take on new shapes

Feeling the soft breeze against your skin

Feeling the sand or grass between your toes

Healing Changes in Life

I cannot believe it has been over a year since I have posted a blog. OH DEAR.

But I do know why. I have been undertaking A LOT of changes in my life. I have been metamorphosing.

I have removed myself from a detrimental relationship, moved twice and was in a serious car accident (from which I am still healing). Now, I am in a new home that I love with my two most favorite people, my children. I am working at a job where I can use my skills (and keeps me very busy). I have seriously honed my psychic skills (OMG cool! If you are interested in knowing more, I have updated the Intuitive Healing section of this blog. I seriously LOVE my psychic friends.) And I am making time to paint what I see on the other side. (Here is my recent painting of what The Light looks like to me after death. The Light is way more sparkly, but this is close.) I am especially loving the time I get to teach metaphysics and heal others through past life regression and soul retrieval. I sit here typing as part of my therapy to recover from the serious concussion I have from the car accident.

Life IS getting better every day.

I send my love to you and all those sweet readers who posted questions and comments that I have not had time to give my full attention to until now. I fully appreciate your patience.

Radio Interview with Brad Simkins – Life Is Just Another Class

Tonight, I have the honor of being interviewed by Brad Simkins via the online radio, Awakening Zone. He is always a wonderful host!

The times for the airing on November 4, 2014 are 5pm PDT, 6pm MDT, 7pm CDT, 8EDT.  (Please note that there will be a limited time to listen to this broadcast on Awakening Zone as this online radio will close the site later in December this year.)

Karen Kubicko

As we journey through this class we call life, we encounter many obstacles. These obstacles can be fears, relationships, unfounded phobias,health, and more. It is how we overcome that brings us healing while strengthening our soul. There are many ways on the path to healing. Karen chose past life regression which awakened her to so much more.

Karen believes that life is just another class. Upon remembering several past lives through regressions, she learned that we chose if and when to go into a new life. We chose this life, our bodies, the people in our lives and what to experience. The bonus being that we are not alone – our angels, spirit guides and passed over loved ones are always here for us.

A Tribute to Dr. Masaru Emoto 1943-2014.

His work was so incredible. Thank you Dr. Masaru Emoto for all your photos and words.Masaru Emoto -2014

His photos of proof of how the energy of water is directly related to the words, feelings and even music that is directed to it, is truly amazing. Thank you Masaru.

He gained worldwide acclaim through his groundbreaking research and discovery, that water is deeply connected to our individual and collective consciousness.

He is the author of the best-selling books Messages from Water, The Hidden Messages in Water, The True Power of Water and Love Thyself. He has now also authored two children’s books, The Secret of Water for the children of the world, and The Message from Water children’s version. He was a long-time advocate for peace in relation to water.

We are made up of mostly water. Dr. Emoto’s work proved that water crystals form beautifully when beautiful thoughts, feelings are shown to it. (Even if it had been exposed to harsh chemicals at first) and that if water was exposed to mean words, harsh sounds, etc. the water crystal would be distorted and deformed.

It is so important to know that what we say and think affects us (and everything) on such a deep level.

Always use positive, loving words.

Love to you! xoxox

Constant Reminders that We Are Loved by Angels

The other day, I was having an … hmmm … icky feeling afternoon. We all get this way from time to time. It is normal I am sure. Just when I started to feel this way, I received an email from a woman named Lina. It was an instant notification that she has re-pinned this image of mine on Pinterest.444 - Angels are all around you

Now, if you have read my book or some of my blog posts you may have seen me write about Lena, my spirit guide. So, the name Lina (close enough) peaked my interest. Nothing happens randomly. Everything seems to happen for a reason. So, when I see the name Lena, I know it is a hello from her. In all of my life, I don’t remember seeing the name Lena, ever. Then once I met her through my past life work, her name just started popping up all over the place.

Just like when I was struggling with the decision to go through with a major life change…. I saw the license plate on the back of the car in front of me. I have photos of it from on my phone and my camera. I am still in disbelief that this happened. If you have Doreen Virtue’s book 101 Angels numbers – even the 514 number on the plate has relevant meaning to what was occurring in my life at the time. The meaning is that if you are struggling to make a change in your life, give the questions to your angels for help and guidance. They did. LUV LENA - Hello from Heaven

But I digress. The coolest thing about the moment that Lina re-pinned one of my Pinterest posts, was that she also chose the image I made with the number 444. 444 means that angels are around you supporting you.

The day gets better. A few hours later, a good friend of mine calls to say that they just saw the time of 4:44 just after having to change a tire. They knew they had to call to tell me about it too. A reminder to them and to me at the same time. So cool.

The very next morning, I took my daughter to the store for a few things. The receipt total? $44.44. I could have squealed. I may have. lol. The fun part was – the cashier had heard about numbers having special meanings too.44.44 - angels are all around us supporting us

Our spirit guides want us to know that we are loved by them so incredibly that they take the time to give us physical signs they are here with us. We just have to be open to seeing them.

xoxoxox to you all.

LIFE Is Just Another Class – One Soul’s Journey Through Past Life Regression

I COULD NOT IMAGINE THE DAY.

MY BOOK IS FINALLY READY TO ORDER ON AMAZON!!!

After three+ years of the emotional work in remembering past lives (with all their intricacies) and writing down all that I could (in a coherent way)

Then …

working on building a platform online …

deciding to self-publish after working towards finding a publisher …

realizing that it is a boatload of work to get it self-published … and did it anyway (with some awesome help)

I approved it this morning on Amazon and figured it would take the 3-5 days like the site stated. I could not believe it took only an hour!

I am so excited!!!!!

Now, if I could just figure out the Kindle version set up. It is close… so close.

On Finding Your Children from a Past Life…

I post again to help my daughter’s quest to find more information on her children she remembered in a past life.

We were recently featured on the TV show Ghost Inside My Child on LMN, a Lifetime network. My daughter had remembered a past life in 1945 where she was killed when a B25 plane crashed into the Empire State Building. Remembering healed away her fear of flying.

Here is what we know of who she used to be in a past life:

If you find any further information on Anna or her children, please let us know. Thank you!

Can You Get Lost After Death?

What do you do when somebody dies? What do you do when you have so many around you die? It is not easy. In the last several months, three parents of friends (that I all knew), one baby, one teenager, and someone I considered a sister all passed away.

The hardest part is that even though I know what happens next, it is still hard. Even though I know it is celebration of their return on the other side, it is still hard.

What happens when you die, you ask…

They all recognized that they died. Angels, spirit guides and previously passed over loved ones were right next to each of them, as they have been for all of their lives. Then, a large, loving, golden Light appears to their right. The love just oozes out of this Light. The love just draws you right into it.

Why are insects attracted to a light?

Why are insects attracted to a light?

If you have read any of my blog posts, you know that I have remembered many past lives personally. In fact, I have remembered well over 50 past lives. A few times my spirit guides have said to me that it is really important to go into The Light. The Light is the passageway into Heaven. It is our true nature of our self, our true lives. Earth is the classroom we visit to learn life lessons.

When we forget or do not go into The Light we can get lost. We do not go into The Light for various reasons that can include memory problems before death, feeling unworthy, wanting to stay to watch over loved ones, or if you die a sudden unexpected death you may not realize you died.

I do not (yet) fully understand what it means “to get lost” after death. Maybe we get stuck in a ghostly spiritual sense on the Earth plane where we may forget about the spark of light in our hearts and avoid going into The Light.

When my best friend’s parents both got sick it was hard to watch both of them deteriorate. First her mother died. It was very hard. It is always hard to see someone suffer and die. Interestingly, I saw her spirit in my own living room not long after her death. She told me she was waiting for her husband to come too. I knew inherently that she did not go into The Light. It is hard to explain how I know, but she just seemed heavier, denser somehow than those I have seen who have passed over in through The Light. She felt different.

Nearly one month later, my friend’s dad passed away. It was incredibly hard on my friend. (Listening and being there for her was still not enough to take away her pain.)

A few hours after his death, I sat in my living room in complete disbelief. All of this had transpired so fast. Her parents were both fine just a few months ago.

At that moment, a saw a vision of her dad showing me that he found her mother. He stood to the right of her. He made me aware that he found her so that she would not get lost. I got the impression, that this was part of the reason he felt he needed to go. He showed me how he was firmly grasping her hand to make sure she was safe. The Light, so golden and loving, appeared behind them. As The Light became brighter, they appeared more silhouetted. They turned and looked back to the Earth class and smiled. They turned and looked at each other and smiled more. Then, they looked into The Light and walked into it.

It was the sweetest, most loving thing between two people that I have ever witnessed.

Me, Talking about my Daughter’s Past Life on National TV!!!

What an experience!

Missed it on TV, here is the full episode. Well…. it used to be available. Sadly, now it is not.

It includes two stories. One about my daughter remembering being killed when a B25 bomber crashed into the Empire State Building in 1945. The second, a very interesting story too, about a boy who remembered being in the military and his involvement with the massacre of Native Americans in the U.S.

Watch LMN for Ghost Inside My Child – Season 2 Episode 1 Premiere. Here is the link to LMNs site.

More on the plane crash into the Empire State Building in 1945.

If you read in the comments of this article, viewers are wondering if Anne’s children are still alive. Claire remembered her children as young, around 5-10 years old at the time. She is wondering about them too.

Is there anyone out there that can help us do research? A photo of Anna May Gerlach (born Anna May Silvey circa 1905 in Sag Harbor, NY – parents were Charles and Rose Silvey. Husband deceased – William Gerlach? Can we find out about her two daughters? We only have one name – Joan Mori Gerlach age 11. We would be very appreciative!

Thank you!

My Daughter Shares Her Story on National TV…Children can Heal from Remembering a Past Life

What would you do if your daughter remembered being inside the Empire State Building when a plane crashed into it?There is a plane in the sky...

I listened.
My daughter was remembering a past life.

In preparing for a flight with her for the first time, she was afraid to fly.

So, one evening, using the information I have learned over the years (that kids can spontaneously remember a past life, just by asking them an open-ended question)

I asked her, “What do you think will happen if you fly in a plane?”

She responded with a story of plane crashing into a building in New York City…. I immediately thought of 9-11. I was pregnant with her at the time of that happening.

I am so grateful that I was open to learn about past lives and for all the past life work I have done for me and for others. My learning allowed for her to remember in a safe, open, and loving environment.

We heal for the life we live now. She flew on an airplane a few weeks later.

Life is full of surprises….

A few months ago, I was contacted (via my website and this blog) by the producer of Ghost Inside My Child, a TV show that tells the stories of children who remember a past life.

We are going to be on national television!!!!

See the whole story (in the USA) on Saturday, August 16, 2014 at 9pm EST on LMN, a Lifetime channel (or via online after it airs). It is Season Two, Episode One, the premiere episode for this season’s Ghost Inside My Child.

Being interviewed for the TV show

We’re SOOOOOO excited!!!

Combating Emotional Vampires – Who Sucks Your Energy?

I recently came across this article and felt that I should post it since it was a good follow-up to my recent post: How to Break Bad Relationship Patterns from this Life and Previous Lives

The Heart - in the beginning

Daily OM
Combating Emotional Vampires
by Dr. Judith Orloff

The following is an excerpt from the “Combating Emotional Vampires” on-line course.

Relationships are always an energy exchange. To stay feeling our best, we must ask ourselves: Who gives us energy? Who saps it? It’s important to be surrounded by supportive, heart-centered people who make us feel safe and secure. It’s equally important to pinpoint the emotional vampires, who, whether they intend to or not, leech our energy.

To protect your sensitivity, it’s imperative to name and combat these emotional vampires. They’re everywhere: coworkers, neighbors, family, and friends. In Energy Psychiatry I’ve treated a revolving door of patients who’ve been hard-hit by drainers–truly a mental health epidemic that conventional medicine doesn’t see. I’m horrified by how many of these “emotionally walking wounded” (ordinarily perceptive, intelligent individuals) have become resigned to chronic anxiety or depression. Why the blind spot? Most of us haven’t been educated about draining people or how to emancipate ourselves from their clutches, requisite social skills for everyone desiring freedom. Emotional draining is a touchy subject. We don’t know how to tactfully address our needs without alienating others. The result: We get tongue-tied, or destructively passive. We ignore the SOS from our gut that screams, “Beware!” Or, quaking in our boots, we’re so afraid of the faux pas of appearing “impolite” that w! e become martyrs in lieu of being respectfully assertive. We don’t speak out because we don’t want to be seen as “difficult” or uncaring.

Vampires do more than drain our physical energy. The super-malignant ones can make you believe you’re an unworthy, unlovable wretch who doesn’t deserve better. The subtler species inflict damage that’s more of a slow burn. Smaller digs here and there can make you feel bad about yourself such as, “Dear, I see you’ve put on a few pounds” or “It’s not lady-like to interrupt.” In a flash, they’ve zapped you by prodding areas of shaky self-worth.

The Heart

This is my credo for vampires: Their antics are unacceptable; you must develop a successful plan for coping with them. I deeply believe in the merciful message of The Lord’s Prayer to “forgive people their trespasses,” but I’m also a proponent of preventing the unconscious or mean-spirited from trespassing against us. Taking a stand against draining people is a form of self-care and canny communication that you must practice to give your freedom legs.

What turns someone into an emotional vampire? First, a psychological reason: children often reflexively mimic their parents’ most unflattering traits. A self-absorbed father can turn you into a self-absorbed son. Early modeling has impact. Studies of Holocaust survivors reveal that many became abusive parents themselves. The second explanation involves subtle energy. I’ve observed that childhood trauma–mistreatment, loss, parental alcoholism, illness–can weaken a person’s energy field. This energy leakage may condition those with such early wounds to draw on the vitality of others to compensate; it’s not something most are aware of. Nevertheless, the effects can be extreme. Visualize an octopus-like tendril extending from their energy field and glomming onto yours. Your intuition may register this as sadness, anger, fatigue, or a cloying, squirrelly feeling. The degree of mood change or physical reaction may vary. A vampire’s effects can stun like a sonic blast or make you! slowly wilt. But it’s the rare drainer that sets out to purposely enervate you. The majority act unconsciously, oblivious to being an emotional drain.

Let me tell you the secret of how a vampire operates so you can outsmart one. A vampire goes in for the kill by stirring up your emotions. Pushing your buttons throws you off center, which renders you easier to drain. Of all the emotional types, empaths are often the most devastated. However, certain emotional states increase everyone’s vulnerability. I myself am most susceptible to emotional vampires when I feel desperate, tired, or disempowered. Here are some others:

•Low self-esteem

•Depression

•A victim mentality

•Fear of asserting yourself

•Addiction to people-pleasing

When encountering emotional vampires, see what you can learn too. It’s your choice. You can simply feel tortured, resentful, and impotent. Or, as I try to do, ask yourself, “How can this interchange help me grow?” Every nanosecond of life, good, bad, or indifferent, is a chance to become emotionally freer, enlarge the heart. If we’re to have any hope of breaking war-mongering patterns, we must each play a part. As freedom fighters, strive to view vampires as opportunities to enlist your highest self and not be a sucker for negativity. Then you’ll leave smelling like a rose, even with Major-League Draculas.

How to Break Bad Relationship Patterns from this Life and Previous Lives

Have you ever experienced a relationship that was not working in a positive way or even toxic? Are you looking for the path to healing?Path to Healing

How do you move on from this relationship in a spiritual sense …. ie. How do you break the unseen ties that bind you? Maybe you have not moved on yet, but you are looking for help. Maybe this person was not in a relationship with you, but possibly it was a hurtful, bad event (like molestation or rape) and you want to continue to heal from that.

We are all looking for love and acceptance from someone, but when harsh relationships, memories and emotional events keep resurfacing later in our lives, we are made aware of our need to heal from them.

We need to heal so that we can be whole …. when we are whole, we can bring our whole self into a new, healthy, loving relationship.

Additionally, when a relationship is ending or has ended, it is like a death. We go through the same stages as if someone close to us has died: Denial, Anger, Depression and finally Acceptance.

I firmly believe that forgiveness is always healing, however, I have found several additional ways to also help in the healing process. Please note that forgiveness is not saying that you are okay with what happened, but that you can release the attachment to it and not allow those memories or that person to weigh you down.

Below you will find many different ways to help you heal through whatever connection you have had in a relationship that you would like to release. By doing so, you will feel lighter, freer, more healthy emotionally and spiritually. It is shedding the dark, cloudy energy that formed. It is the releasing of the heavy, pent-up emotions that have been weighing us down – sometime for our entire lifetime or beyond. Use the tool or tools that resonates with you.

Know that it may take years for healing as we are always healing on many levels. By simply acknowledging that you would like to release the attachment to this relationship is the first step to healing. These tools may be your first step. There are many, many ways to heal. These are just a few. It feels like we are chipping away at a large boulder now, but you can do it with a lot of self-work and self-love.

My first suggestion is to ask your angels and spirit guides to send you healing unconditional love. Close your eyes right now and allow it to be so.One Little White Feather from an Angel

 

START WITH THE RELEASING …

 

Release the Patterns of a Past Life

Angelic Prayer from Mhairi at Angel Rainbow

Help provided by Archangel Raziel

Visualize yourself surrounded in rainbow colors.

I call upon Archangel Raziel to help my remember lessons and experiences from my past lives, that have an impact upon my life at this time. Help me to understand and heal from issues that I faced during any of my past lives. Guide me to recognize and release all that no longer serves me in this life, which is connected to a previous existence. I calmly and with love release and heal from all that you show me. Archangel Raziel, thank for this wonderful guidance and allowing me to realize how my past lives have influenced this incarnation.

 

Remember a Past Life

Go straight to the source of why you were attracted to this person in the first place or why you encountered them. By remembering a past life, you can be made aware of being with them before and why. Maybe the experience was similar. Maybe the past life experience explains the relationship. It can be extraordinarily healing on a lot of levels. I have seen a contract I signed to agree to come into this life with a person – all for the learning. Harsh, but I did grow from the experience. We choose all that we have experienced by our own free will.

 

Clear Your Blocks to Your Happiness and Abundance

Here is way to clear any blocks you may have by Joe Vitale. It is from his audio tapes, the Missing Secret:

“Spirit, Superconscience, please locate the origin of my feeling, thoughts of __________________________.
Take each and every level, layer, area and aspect of my being to this origin.
Analyze and resolve it perfectly with God’s truth.
Come through all generations of time and eternity.
Healing every incident and its appendages based on the origin.
Please do it according to God’s will until I am at the present, filled with light and truth, God’s peace and love, forgiveness of myself for my incorrect perceptions, forgiveness of every person, place, circumstances and event which contributed to these feelings, thoughts.
With total forgiveness and unconditional love: I allow every physical, mental, emotional and spiritual problem and inappropriate behavior based on the negative origin recorded in my dna to transform.
I choose _____ (What you want to be) ________________________.
I feel ________ (what you want to feel) ________________________.Heart in Hand-LOVE Thyself

 

Contract/vow Releasement

This is an excerpt from Owen Waters’ book:

“I now renounce and release all vows that I have taken which have outlived their purposes and which now limit my potential for growth. I reclaim my personal freedom and declare such vows renounced and released as of now. I replace old vows with the knowing that I am loved and that I am Love.”

 

Cut the Unseen Cords

There are unseen cords that attach when you meet someone. It is as though they physically attach to you. Some are good attachments and you feel positive and lifted up by the relationship – sometimes even a back and forth energetic exchange. Those are the healthy ones!

But… then there are those who drain us, literally, of our energy and we feel exhausted after talking to or being with them.

A shaman taught me how to detach these cords. Close your eyes and visualize the cords extending from your stomach area (which is via the sacral chakra). Then visualize yourself cutting the cords. In your mind, visualize yourself using a large pair of scissors, a flaming knife, sword or even a chain saw. Whatever makes you happy. Cut them like you mean it. Then, visualize yourself taking back all parts of your energy from their (whoever they may be) portion of the cord. Put your energy back on and in you. Then, send their cord portion back to them. I visualize them burning back to the others … to really cut them off. Offer forgiveness to any person that comes to your mind while you do this. You are not being mean, it is necessary. Then visualize your opening (from where the cords came) being sealed back up with unconditional love.

I have seen this done with people using real tools like a knife (uh, made me very nervous) and learned you can use any physical object like a stone or anything meaningful to you. While doing this physical, in the air, cutting, you can scream out to this person that: ‘you are finished, you are done, you are mad, you are cutting them from you’. It is very healing.

You do not have to sever every cord with every person, some are built on love – like your child or parent. Do this exercise as often as you feel necessary. I did it several times. The shaman said, some can be sticky and it may take a few times to release them completely. Every once in a while, do it again. I did it every day, then once a week, etc. at first. You’ll know what to do intuitively. I rarely feel the need for cord cutting now.

I started to notice that when I felt drained after talking to someone … I had to disconnect. After a while, it becomes obvious who drains you.Love bracelet as a daily reminder we are LOVED

 

Writing

You can write a letter to this person and tell them that you are done, disconnected and finished with the emotional attachment they formed on you. You can then burn it for finality.

 

NOW FOR THE HEALING …

 

EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) Tapping

I offer this affirmation for those who have been traumatized:

Even though terrible things may have happened to me, and my impulse may be to suppress undesirable thoughts, emotions, or bodily sensations, I am loveable and acceptable just as I am. Even though I may feel devalued by traumatic occurrences, I know at my core that I am whole and good, and I now choose to lovingly align myself with that truth.

 

Protect Yourself

Each day or as often as you feel the need, visualize a shield around you. I visualize a golden light. Say, “The golden light surrounds and protects me. No harm can come through my light, only goodness.”

 

Write the Story You Want to Hear

Now, focus on you. Write down how you want your life to be. Write things that only state the positive – use NO negative words/thoughts. For example: Say- ‘Only loving people are in my life’. Don’t say- ‘No mean men in my life’. Say- ‘I know what I want in my life’. Don’t say- ‘I am a lost soul’.

The reason I tell you this is because: the story you tell about you, becomes you. Tell the story you want to have in your life (even if it sounds crazy or outrageous now). Say things like- I have lots of friends who love and respect me. There are nice people everywhere. People do nice things for me every day and I accept them with gratitude. The men or women I meet love and respect me. I am confident in everything I do. I have courage. I am open to receive loving relationships.love wave

 

Be Inspired

Read or listen to the teachings of The Secret (Rhonda Byrnes) (and any of the authors featured) as well as Esther & Jerry Hicks writings on the teachings of Abraham-Hicks and the Law of Attraction. Very cool info.

 

Visualize the New You

Make a vision board – it is a poster collage filled with things you want to see in your life. If you are a visual person, this is a great reminder of what you want out of life. It is fun to do. I add stuff all the time. You can make a paper one with pictures clipped from magazines. The website Pinterest.com is a great place to do this online. Or you can copy pictures and paste them on a document you keep on your computer. The more you look at the vision board, the better. I have a couple. It is a fun reminder of what you want in life. And – when you look at it months later and see that some of the things have come to fruition… well…. life can be fabulous.

Children Can Easily See Angels … more Proof

Today I was going through my daughter’s old drawings and came across one that caught my attention. A lot. I had to share.

My daughters loving spirit

She had drawn an angel and told me that, this was her “Loving spirit (one of 12 or 13) that came to her to make her feel better and filled her heart with LOVE.”

I am so glad I wrote it down as she told me.

Kids say the most interesting things. My daughter certainly did then and still amazes me today. (I love you darling.)

At this point in my life I was not in touch with how angels and spirit guides are always here for us. I am sure I wrote it thinking, “Aw, that’s sweet.” And then did not think about it again. As I read it now, I am sure she was seeing an angel. She drew this when she was only four years old.

You can see for yourself that her drawing has angel wings and a halo of light around a heart above the crown chakra. It looks like they may be singing too.

I showed it to my daughter again. She said, “Look, see they even have a third eye too.”

WOW. She was four and could not only see this, but knew that they filled her heart with love. The amazing part is that this angel was only one of the 12 or 13 that came to her… for her.

Kids are soooo connected with Heaven, that angels, spirit guides and passed over loved ones are easily seen and can be talked to by children.

I obviously dismissed this experience as just an interesting drawing with an interesting description at that time in my life. I had been living for many years without much faith in anything and I know at this point in my life I was just beginning to understand that there is so much more. I now know that we are so incredibly loved by our angels, spirit guides and passed over loved ones it is incomprehensible.

PLEASE remember that all babies and children are so close to having just been in Heaven that seeing angels and being able to talk to them is so easy for them. Please, please, please support them and acknowledge this true God-given ability they all (we all) have so that it stays with them throughout their life. How wonderful to feel supported everyday and to know it.

I know I will be reviewing both my children’s drawings to see what other treasures I can find.

In the meantime, my daughter remembers this experience and offered to redraw this angel. I will post it when she does.

Love to you all,

xoxox

A Declaration of Self Esteem

I was given this …. um … I won’t say, since then you will know my age. I feel 25, so we will go with that. I was given this a very long time ago, way before I truly found myself (my whole self). I was going through a very difficult time in my life at that point.The Garden of Adonis by John Dickson Batten 1887. Angels always watch over us.

I came across this declaration again while organizing paperwork recently, so I thought I would share it with you. I was given many other helpful things that I will soon share.

I am not sure who to acknowledge as the author, since none was given, so I send my thanks out to the one who wrote it.

I send my love out to the woman who gave it to me while I stayed there. I wish I could remember her name.

I can hear the words that Morgana says in the movie Little Mermaid II. She exclaims, “Say it loud. Say it Proud,” to little Melody as Melody turns into a mermaid and becomes her true self.

With heartfelt love to all who read this …. for all the dear, sweet Humans (as my friend, Sheri would say) who share this Earth with me, this is for you to declare.

 

My Declaration of Self Esteem I am ME.

In all the world, there is no one else exactly like ME.

There are persons who have some parts like ME, but no on adds up exactly like ME.

Therefore, everything that comes out  of ME is authentically mine because I alone choose it.

I own everything about ME – my body, including everything it does; my mind, including all its thoughts and ideas; my eyes, including the images of all they behold; my feelings, whatever they may be – anger, joy, frustrations, love, disappointment, excitement; my mouth, and all the words that come out of it, polite, sweet or rough, correct or incorrect; my voice, loud or soft; and all my actions, whether they be to others or to myself. I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears.

I own all my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes.

Because I own all of ME, I can become intimately acquainted with ME.

By so doing I can love ME and be friendly with ME in all my parts. I can then make it possible for all of ME to work in my best interests.

I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle ME, and other aspects that I do not know.

But as long as I am friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously and hopefully look for the solutions to the puzzles and for ways to find out more about ME.

However, I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is ME. This is authentic and represents where I am at that moment in time. When I review later how I looked and sounded, what I said and did, and how I thought and felt, some parts may turn out to be unfitting. I can discard that which is unfitting and keep that which proved fitting, and invent something new for that which I discarded. I can see, hear, feel, think, say and do.

I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive, and to make sense and order of the world of people and things outside of ME.

I own ME, and therefore I can engineer ME.

I am me and I am okay.
