Day 10: Heart Whisper Gratitude Challenge: Forgiveness

Day 10: Heart Whisper Gratitude Challenge: Forgiveness

Forgiveness is a form of gratitude ~ Sarah Ban Breathnach Welcome to Day 10 of The Heart Whisper Gratitude Challenge (If you’re only just catching up with us today go here first to find out what you need to do to get ready or just start at the day you have arrived at. The previous days are listed at the bottom of each post in PINK) We are a third of the way through the challenge so I think today’s card is appropriate as it fits brilliantly with today’s gratitude activity. Reward Yourself : Celebrate YOU. Sometime, often really we celebrate others wins, how often do you celebrate you wins? Sometimes we need to forgive first and then celebrate. Be forgiving for being too hard on yourself, feeling you are not enough. You might have missed a day of recording you 5 things Today celebrate you, I know if might be a bit confusing to have forgiveness in with celebration. Self forgiveness is a starting point for healing you. Maybe you find it easy to forgive yourself. I know that over the many years of personal growth work I have discovered that I have had to forgive myself quite often. It is easy to beat up on you, sometimes it becomes something that it might take your partner or friend to point out to you. Des often picks me up on my language when I have done something I know is stupid and then I call myself stupid- not a very smart thing to do! Message from the card: “You now have the opportunity to write the script according to our...
What To Do When The Radical Self-Love Angel Comes Knocking!

What To Do When The Radical Self-Love Angel Comes Knocking!

Does the Universe ever surprise you? Sneak up on you like it’s been watching and waiting? Well it did for me this week. Last Friday I completed my chapter for a book on Self Love and emailed it off. I felt good about what I had written. I then planned to write my weekly blog post, when my body started to ache! So an early night with a lemon, honey, ginger and garlic concoction that usually knocks out bugs for me. Saturday morning the bugs had not left they had multiplied! I now had headaches, sinus pain and a cough. I posted on facebook asking for love and healing and then I rested thinking this would pass in a day or so. The sinus subsided and the headaches left, great I thought. Then I had a crazy sneezing fit and I felt something in my back shift! The coughing increased, the body started to sweat, I couldn’t keep food down and the back pain started. Then there was an OH NO moment! This was not a good feeling. My mind checked in remembering this pain back from last year when I discovered I had crush fractures, and thought maybe I had had another crushed vertabrae I then started doing more mediation and visualizing myself being healed. Well I am good at healing myself! On Monday I wrote the words below for the Monday Heart Whisper and headed to Aweber to put the whisper together. I discovered last week”s Shining Your True Colours, Heart Whisper still waiting to be scheduled, I did thank the universe and put this one aside...
How To Manifest Your Intentions With The New Moon

How To Manifest Your Intentions With The New Moon

Relationships (all relationships) will be tweaked or even let go of. But, again, the most important relationship we have is the one with our self. How are we being asked to step forward? How are we being challenged this week. Look at what triggers you and learn if you could react a new way. Look where you can be your own authority but in a new way. - Louise Edington   I read these words in Louise’s Cosmic Transition Report this week. The new moon today or tomorrow depending where you are in the world is on 4th/5th October.  I decided after sharing in Be Shining:  my full moon ritual and reading the words look at what triggers you that I have been addressing in the EFT course I am currently taking, that I would share what I will be doing to move forward with the energy of this new moon. The new moon is a time for renewal, setting goals, (I prefer to use the word intention ) planting seeds and for reflection. A time of cleansing, releasing and new beginnings.  Time to step up and even shine. Do what you are here to do. Setting goals has not been one of my favorite activities. This week I got out my planner  and felt a resistance to actually scheduling that was very strong, So I put it away. Not a good look as I found myself then in the wonderful state of overwhelm! Then in comes my friend procrastination. All in all not a good look or feel. A good time to manifest a healthier relationship with self! What To...
Color Prescription 4: Green and The Heart Chakra

Color Prescription 4: Green and The Heart Chakra

Working with The Color Green and The Heart  Chakra Green is the color of energy and abundance, of nature, of apples and pears, of limes, of broccoli, kale, spinach, peas and beans, of balance and harmony, of growth and money, of jade and malachite  Green presents in so many shades and hews. As I look out my window I can count at least 20 varying shades and tones of green. Green is the color of the fourth chakra, our heart chakra and love centre.  The heart chakra is related to our ability to love and is a source of compassion, kindness and affection. When our heart chakra is in balance and we are accepting of ourself and others, our self-esteem is healthy and our vibes are high: We Feel Good. This post is part of a Color Prescription series I started over 2 years ago , just before I experienced the autoimmune disease that put me out of action with a total kidney failure. I had painted a series of paintings which you can see in the video and I have added some that I have painted since then. I reflected back on stopping this series at the heart chakra: I did have a draft back in July 2011!  The message that I got back 2 years ago was that this journey for me was all about love, when I fractured my humerus in January 2012, it was in line with my heart chakra, as was my crush fracture. Seem the universe was making sure this time I slowed down enough to get the message! I have had time to look closely...

The world looks bright, my vibes are high and the day goes well. Then there are the days I do all the same as above and there will be one things that throws a spanner in the works…… It might be a letter, a phone call, an email that takes me away from my intention and  I go to do my daily accountability and find little to report on Then there are the days where I just want to climb back under the covers or even just switch off from the world, head to the beach and read a love story or escape novel. So what to do to be positive when a bout of the low vibes rolls in?  Do something that makes you feel good-  I love having a coconut oil lavender bubble bath, lighting candles and playing music  Meditate- right now join the 21 day meditation Oprah and Deepak challenge- the first 5 days have been awesome. it”s about Miraculous Relationships, the first one being with you- the most challenging one I think  Pick up a paintbrush or even a texta and doodle.
