What a crazy week! Much different than the week before…. thank goodness! Life takes a different turn and suddenly we find ourselves in a life we hadn’t even imagined and boy is it getting better!
I am so excited about this week! Spirit shows me a week filled with love, light, magic and surprises!! It’s a great time to be alive!! Oh and Spirit gives us another message about being ourselves and a reminder to let our light shine. We were born to shine as brightly as we can, stop hiding behind the mask and stop worrying about what others might think. LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE!
Today I talk about what holds us back, what has us chained down and releasing those things that bind us and keep us from moving forward on our path. I talk about this SHIFT that we are all experiencing and what to expect. What it’s all about and how to make it through.
Spirit message for today. I felt so urged to deliver this message. I had written down the words “Stop waiting to be happy” last night on a post it note. I kept looking at it today, asking Spirit if it was time to talk about it and all I kept getting was “No, not yet”. Then I found myself a few moments ago feeling pushed to go ahead and do it NOW. There is someone out there that will get this message because of timing more than any other reason. So, I listened to Spirit, verbalized the message and here we are. I hope it reached everyone who needs it!
I began to look at all the memorable moments of my life. I started thinking about all of my relationships and how I always made everyone else a priority. If I wasn’t going to put myself first why would anyone else. I began to think about my life now while I am not in a relationship and why I felt the need to search for someone else to focus on. I looked inside and found that I am truly happy as I am right now and I don’t “need” someone else in my life to be happy.. I am happy. Sharing a life with someone else who is happy would be great but not something that I “NEED”. THIS is a memorable moment!
Life is good if we allow it to be. Often we get in our own way of happiness. We make all the wrong choices for all the wrong reasons. We complicate our lives when it doesn’t need to be complicated. We get in our own way! We need to learn how to listen more closely to our intuition and make better decisions and stop blocking happiness from our own lives.
It’s a very freeing and empowering feelings when you find your own light. When you realize that love, light and happiness has always been inside YOU. There is no need to look to outside sources to make yourself happy or to make your life complete. You are already whole, you are already complete. Just as you are!
Life isn’t about title gained, amount of money your bank account has in it, the car you drive, how many friends you have or anything of such. At the end of our lives all that will matter when you look back is “Were you Happy?”
When you find it hard to follow your own advice. Many times over I have given the advice to others to live their life in a way that makes them happy…. only I have not followed my own advice. I spent my years making others happy … putting my own happiness to the side. As a friend, daughter, wife, mother… I thought that is what I was suppose to do. Times are changing. It’s time to start living for me.
This morning as I sat in the grass, searching for 4 leaf clovers I thought about the search… not just the search for special clovers, but the search in general.
As I searched, I found myself ever so focused on what I was looking for. All other “things” were on the sidelines as I searched for these elusive clovers. I found one, and kept searching. I found another and continued to search. I found 3 then 4 and 5 and 6 and I kept searching. I found that I kept finding 4 leaf clovers until I decided to stop searching.
The same can be said about: Love, Success, Opportunity, Wisdom, Peace, Knowledge, Answers and everything else that one might search for.
You will continue to find what you seek until you decide to stop looking for it.
You may not always be happy with what you find or how you find it… but the choice is always there to keep searching.
The search won’t always be easy, depending on what it is you are looking for. Sometimes you have to dig deep and go below the surface to find it. Sometimes it is right in front of you, but for whatever reason, you just can’t see it. The thing is… you will eventually find it for as long as you don’t give up searching for it.
For me this morning … the answer is 20. I found 20 four leaf clovers this morning before I decided that I had found enough, became happy with what I had found and stopped looking. 🙂
Some people spend their entire lives wishing for magic to happen. Whether it be their knight riding in on a white horse to rescue them from their mundane life or being followed by a magical trail of glitter and sparkles where ever they go, they keep wishing for magic. What they fail to see is the magic that is already there. Yep, right their in their lives every single day. We all have it! Magic isn’t something only a select few get to experience. Magic lives in the lives of all of us if we wish to see it.
Here’s some everyday magic you may have not noticed:
A smile from a stranger
A compliment for no reason at all
Finding something that was once lost
A cuddle from someone you love
A kind gesture
Finding a penny (face up)
Finding a 4 leaf clover 😉
Laughter from a child
Giggles between friends
The song of the birds
The soft scent of honeysuckle floating on a breeze
Feeling good about who you are
Completing a complicated task
Knowing who you are
Being in the moment
Finding your balance (even if only for a moment)
Doing for others
You see these may not seem very magical, but they are. These are just a few of the simple things in everyday life that make us feel good. Imagine for a moment a life without all of these things. Yeah, not so nice huh? Drab and sad to say the least.
Magic isn’t about fairy tales and sparkle, it’s not about a bunch of hocus pocus and making things appear with a twitch of your nose. Magic is about appreciating all parts of life and walking your path with love.
Magic is noticing those things that are mostly unseen, finding an appreciation for all life here on Earth, and harnessing the happiness life offers us.
Most important … Magic is love. Plain and simple .. LOVE. Love yourself, love others, love living. LOVE.
Today is one of those drab Fall days with overcast skies, rain and fog… everything kinda looks all grey and depressing… that is until you take a closer look.
Here’s how most will see this day and how they will feel:
Here’s how I see this day .. can you tell how much better my mood might be?
Even during the rain… there is beauty if only you wish to see it.
What makes you smile?
What makes your heart skip a beat?What is it that makes you glow from the inside out?
What makes you giggle from within?
Personally I’m not complicated.. its all the small things in life that make me happy…
My husbands touch, a breeze, the moon, fireflies, my daughters excitment over life, good friends, a job well done, completed projects, good food, a nice cold drink on a hot day, a warm cup of tea, sleeping in, staying up all night, cuddles, the dog, soft things, flowers, birds, seeing the deer in the field, willow trees, butterflies, kisses, hugs, sunsets, sunrises, dreams, visions, the warm spot in the bed, the cold side of the pillow, nature, fluffy clouds… the list could go on forever!!! Just thought I’d give you a bit of food for thought today …
