4. SHOW LOVE

12646973_570133436469578_3256600554088877601_n

The perfection affirmation for not only today Valentine’s Day but every day!  Today for me is a day of celebrating love regardless of what your relationships status is. It is also a reminder for me to be love and light in all circumstances of life. I am reading a phenomenal book at the moment called Light is the New Black by Rebecca Campbell. It is about shining your light and being the most authentic version of you and to shine your awesome light in the world.

As I have been reading the book there are lessons that I have already examined and stopped by to have a look. What the difference is this time is that I am not the same person I may have been when I first unravelled the lesson. Life is about learning and loving. To love all the parts of self even when you may feel that there is no reason to. To stand up and show up no matter what they may feel like, for this is truly love.

Today as I sit and write my blog for the day, I also wait for some of my single mates to pick me so we can celebrate love. We are excited to celebrate, to be alive and all that we are. To celebrate each other and to know the love that we have is to witness the most authentic versions of ourselves.  The relationship that we have with ourselves is the most important relationship that we will ever have. I learn more about this each and every day. The way I feel about myself is ultimately that way the universe will respond to me and this is such a valuable lesson to learn.

Whether or not today is about celebrating with a significant other, friends, whoever or whatever it is a timely reminder to show love and be love. It is not just about today but every day. To be love and to live in your light and to come home to your true authentic self for this is when we truly shine.

For me it is the perfect reminder about the relationship that I have with myself especially when the flow of life has its ebbs and flows. We are ALL deserving of unconditional love for ourselves and each other. To be present and light in all that I do and all that I am. To know and feel that – “Whatever the question, love is the answer” [i]  Blessed be and so it is. So it is done. Namaste.

With a sprinkle of fairy dust and may magic follow your day.

HUGE LOVE

[i] Quote – Dr Wayne Dyer

80. I am spirit, light, energy, vibration and love.

10376150_557779081038347_4038509149078117631_n

As the end of the year fast approaches it is an opportune time to reflect and as humans we want to start fresh, create new goals, and take a new direction. This year for me was filled with many life lessons, some were awesome and some were filled with pain and grief. Friendships severed and new ones have blossomed. New jobs have taken place and old ones have ceased. Family members have left our realm and new ones are being born. It is all part of being spirt, light energy vibration colour and love.

When I feel into what the year has been for me it is especially about growth and grief. I never really felt that the two could coincide but they have. What brings great comfort is feeling that our loved are also spirit, light, energy, vibration colour and eternal love. They never really leave; I believe they simply take on another form. They leave us messages and signs and it is what we learn from these experiences that live in our hearts forever and then some.

Our human bodies are simply a vessel in which we travel around from lifetime to lifetime. We are neither our bodies, nor the colour of our skin or the shape or size that our human form takes on. Rather it is what is inside of us that make us who we truly are. On that note what I also remind myself to understand is that we are all the same.  This is particularly important when we have differences with another or when a drama has presented in our lives. We were all born from a being of light, energy, vibration and love. It is what we have been taught along the way that has allowed us to be the beings that exist at this moment.

At times we are ravaged with stress, drama, pain, grief turmoil. The list can go on and on. That is not to say that these feelings cannot exist. Of course they can and they do. Instead it is how they play out in our lives. We can manifest in the turmoil and the angst of the situation, or we can understand that we are all the same and leading to a path where we are able to return home to love.

I have had quite a few situations this year where I have been challenged by drama. It is a work in progress and compassion would have to be my biggest lesson. Sometimes it is the lesson of letting situations and people go and this can be really tough. It is to love yourself enough to know that you are worthy living a life of magnificence and bliss. The bumps and turns along the way make it an interesting read but it is important not to get caught up in the story. I know for me this affirmation is an awesome reminder to truly let go of the drama of the year that I have been hanging onto. It doesn’t mean that the action of another is less painful rather it is understanding that we all learn at different times and you choose how you wish the story to unfold. I am spirit, light, energy, vibration and love. Blessed be and so it is. So it is done. Namaste.

12. I am never stuck, for I can choose new thoughts and new ways of thinking.

10455172_406186302864293_6717735559193658833_n

My auntie passed away a few days ago and my thoughts and world right now is surrounded by her death. My thoughts and feelings change from hour to hour so when I read the affirmation for today I am reflecting about the way I have been feeling. That is not to say that I don’t have the right to feel sad, confused, bewildered, shocked but rather what I focus on can be different. This does not take it away from the grief as I am also comfortable sitting in my sorrow if that is what it needs to be for now. What I don’t want to focus on is her dead body for I know this is not who she is nor is it for any of us who we are.

Since I began my blog almost two years ago there are few tough situations that I have to deal with, death of such a close family member has not been one of them. What I do know is the closeness that it brings and how precious humanity is. My most profound feelings right now is just how much our bodies are just that, yet we work so bloody much on looking good, being plucked, pruned and it the end it doesn’t bloody matter anyway. What we leave is our soul and as far as I am concerned this is what requires the most attention during our lives. The body in which we travel during this lifetime requires so much love and attention from us in the most beautiful of ways and we especially should love every single aspect that it brings cellulite, stretch marks and all. So instead of thinking about seeing my aunt’s dead body and not liking the way that feels for me I can change my thoughts and be grateful for what it did for her during her 76 years of living on this earth. Furthermore it allows me to love my body even more so I am able to do what I desire with freedom and health.

Our thoughts can consume so much of our head space, so if your thoughts are shitty and dull you will only attract more of the same as this is the energy that will be attracted. I am not saying that you just turn it around and you become happy but changing focus, seeing it from another perspective creates new avenues and thoughts patterns to exist. I am never stuck, for I can always choose new thoughts and new ways of thinking. Blessed be and so it is. So it is done. Namaste

2. Life brings me only good and positive experiences

10518993_385748731591820_8239468597708656864_n

This year I am writing from I CAN DO IT 2015 calendar (365 Daily Affirmations) from Louise Hayes. I received it as a farewell gift from an old workplace. Coincidence or not it was through a series of serendipitous events that led me to my first blog that pretty much changed my life forever. Thank you to the beautiful angels that I worked with and hold such a special place in my heart. Their encouragement and love got me through some dark days and I cherish them ever so dearly. So here I go with a fire in my belly to create change with compassion.

I thought I would include the short note from Louise Hay that reads “This year will be different from any other we have lived. Our knowledge and understanding will grow and deepen in new ways. Our capacity for compassion will expand. Our ability to give and receive love will make daily living like heaven on earth. Every New Year brings us the opportunity for a fresh start. In 2015, peace is within our reach as new adventure beckon. Life love us, and will bring us wonders all year long” it follows with a few words about January “This month, I tenderly place my foot on a new pathway. I open my heart, knowing that love guides every decision. All is well”

What I am also mindful of as I write my blog for 2015 is that there are people who are struggling with the emotions of Christmas and New Year. It may not be a time of celebration instead one that stirs emotions of grief and sadness. There is no right or wrong with what we feel it simply is. Our one life is so precious and what we decide to spend our energy and time on is ever so important. It is about creating another way of being to what we knew. For what we knew may not be working for us and is not in alignment with our higher self and universal love. Perhaps we can’t wave a magic wand and be happy but what we can do is focus our energies on others that may not be as fortunate and know that we are truly abundant and blessed. What I also like to remind myself about when I get into my head is to ask myself “if this was my last day on earth would I be OK feeling and doing what is happening right now” If the answer is no, simply change it. As Louise Hay reminds us in her words about January ““This month, I tenderly place my foot on a new pathway” Rewrite your own start to 2015. Life brings me only good and positive experiences. Blessed be and so it is. So it is done. Namaste.

187. Lighten Up

10689750_1500999503506505_19126346804391536_n

Dear angels,

Thank you for helping me lighten up and see the many gifts that are before me. Please help me release any worries, and fill my heart with faith that everything is going exactly to a wonderful Divine plan. I don’t have to know all the behind-the-scenes details of the agenda. I simply need to keep my heart open and joyful, and be willing to receive all the good that you bring to me each day.

Having spent time in Cambodia in a very third world country has taught me so much about gratitude. There are times that I can get caught up with not being where I think I should be. What I do realise is when I tell myself that “I should” I may as well be shitting on myself because to live in “should have” moments have no purpose at all. Rather how I choose to live my life is to know and realise that everything is exactly the way it is meant to be good bad or indifferent. For the last month or so I have felt blocked and my creativity stifled. Hindsight and reflection is awesome and at the time of feeling stuck the answers are not always obvious. What I did understand for me this time was that it was OK to feel blah as long as I didn’t plan on unpacking and living there.

Worry is such a waste of time and energy and is really disempowering. Unfortunately you can’t switch on a magic switch and poof it is gone but rather what is symbolical to me is to connect to my inner source and faith, to know and trust that all will be well and that I am safe and divinely protected. We are filled with so much abundance in our country and we are so privileged to live in a place where so much freedom exists. I am grateful for this each and every day. It is often the most trivial of life’s counterparts that make us so abundant but yet in the midst of our daily chaos and mind we falter to see them. Whilst most of us are complaining about the Christmas rush and being amongst the celebrations there are so many where water, food and clothing is scarce. This is the injustice of the world that saddens my heart but I can immerse myself in the gratitude of all that I have. I wake up in a bed each morning and I am safe, I am comfortable and I am filled with food and water to keep me alive.

So for me this affirmation could not have come at a better or more convenient time because instead of feeling what may be missing in my life I am eternally grateful for all that I am surrounded with. I am about to go to mums and dads for breakfast where I will be filled with love and nurtured. These are the blessings that I am most grateful for. Most importantly my heart is beating. I am willing to receive all the greatness that life offers me now. Blessed be and so it is, so it is done. Namaste.

186. Move through Life Changes

10423824_396066633876260_7195125916706073774_n

My life changes take me in positive new directions. The angels are with me every step of the way, and I am open to receiving their help, guidance, and protection. I am excited about fresh possibilities on my path.

I love change and actually really dislike when my life is the same. If my life is the same it means that there is no growth, no leaps of faith and that I am staying comfortable in my zone. For me when there is no change or shifts I actually feel stifled, my energy is stuck and I feel blah. Not a nice place to be and when I am in this space I know that I am ready and willing to accept change in every way possible.

What I interpret to be normal is that life presents us with hurdles and obstacles that we can perceive as blocks or stepping stones to where we need to be. When I am presented with a situation that ultimately will change my life and the way I live it is not always pleasant, sometimes it is through an action of another that has hurt or caused me pain. What I am open to do in these instances is to go inwards and firstly ask myself where it is my life that I have also played this role. It is not always or easy or pleasant to look within. What I definitely do know is that it is far more empowering to feel this way than to choose to be a victim or martyr to the situation. That is not to disregard that what another person has done is OK in fact to accept the behaviour is abuse to self. Rather what lends itself to change and growth is to learn from what has been presented and to take responsibility for the situation that ultimately has been created by you.

What you have allowed to accept in your life is a part of you where that behaviour may also reside. It is sometimes difficult to look within and to accept the shadow but I know that accepting my shadow is one of the bloody most powerful aspects of growth that I have been able to learn from. There is change that comes from acceptance of self and yes that sometimes can be scary but staying the same is far scarier. F*&k I don’t want to die being the same person I am right now! I want my eulogy to be filled with so much adventure, magic and change for not only myself but for the world.

So for me right now my changes are about acceptance of taking a leap of faith. To create a life where I put myself out there far more than what I ever did, to be the I want to see in the world by being of service to humanity , by not staying small and my saying yes to life!  The changes in my life are experiences of magic and miracles filled with abundance, gratitude and grace. Blessed be and so it is, so it is done. Namaste.

185. Have Patience with yourself

10847802_396889817127275_2138904366784888092_n

I have patience with myself and my progress. I acknowledge and honour how far I’ve come and how much I’ve learned. I give any fears or worries to God and the angels, relaxing in the sure faith that everything is going according to Divine Plan.

The affirmation that I randomly picked today was exactly what I was meant to hear. I must admit I had been beating myself up of late and feeling that I have not done all the things that I had set myself out to do. So when I flicked to the affirmation to today I sat down and breathed a sigh of relief. Instead I felt rather than thought and was really honoured and proud about  all that I have been able to achieve rather than berate myself. It is so bloody easy to be hard on ourselves and yet for some ridiculous reason we don’t easily recognise our successes. Today I stand proud of all of who I am and all that I have achieved so far.

When we lie in bed thinking thoughts that consume our mind we are not thinking of all the beautiful wonderful things that are happening, instead we are riddled with worry about all the things that occurrences that can potentially happen. As I type this out I realise how ridiculously worthless and pointless this is to our self-esteem and most importantly our worth. Why is it that at times we struggle to see our own worth and beauty? There could be a gazillion indoctrinated beliefs about this but ultimately the only person that can change the answer to that is you. For me right now this is the biggest lesson that I am learning. To know and understand that I am worthy of all the great things that are in my life right now and of everything that will be.

This morning I lay in bed for ages before I got myself up. A few times I heard myself saying “come on Sonia it is a beautiful day get up and get out and get stuff done” my body was telling me otherwise so I continued to lie there. Then another voice popped in my head “you are wasting a beautiful morning”, this time I told ego to F*(K off my body was tired and I was listening because I am worthy and deserving of rest. Anyway whose perception is it anyway that resting your body in bed is time wasting?  It was certainly something that I have heard and learnt to be real because this was my perception. When it no longer becomes what I believe I am not wasting time in bed rather I love my body enough to rest and recuperate for all the things that I would like to do.

So in reflection on the affirmation for today it is about acknowledging how far we have come from yesterday. It is not about living in the past but rather to be proud of ALL that has been achieved good bad or indifferent. To celebrate the breakups and heartbreaks as milestones and all the mistakes along the way for it is these situations that truly shape us. I am awesome and perfect just the way I am and everything is working in divine working order right now. Blessed be, so it is, so it is done. Namaste.
