The ancient alchemists were always searching for ways to create gold, cure diseases, and harness eternal life. They were all about the science of making magic.
Today, we discover gold in our deepest relationships, cure ourselves through healing the soul’s wounds, and embrace eternity by seeing the pure, beautiful truth of our essence.
We are the modern-day alchemists. We gave up trying to fit in, because we were born to belong amongst the dreamers and the doers. We shine light on our dark places and banish their shame with our love. We heal our hearts, and we send a ripple of healing to the world around us. We create our own brand of magic every single day, just by being ourselves.
In the midst of any holiday shopping chaos, you are an island of calm. You emit such a beautiful positive energy, people can’t help but feel more relaxed in your presence. You bring out the best in people, just by being your light, bright, wonderful self.
Long lines just give you time to meditate and send love to the world around you. Tired cashiers and weary shoppers give you an opportunity to offer a much needed smile and word of encouragement. Online shopping WiFi delays let you unplug and take a break for yourself. 💖🦋
Try this #mondaymantra to remind you: “I carry Peace, Joy, and Love everywhere I go.”
Wherever you go, there you are… so where are you today? Is your mind detached from your body, is your heart on one side of the world while you’re somewhere else? It’s not that these are “bad” things, but there is another way.
Practice total mindfulness by allowing yourself to be fully present in your immediate surroundings, while simultaneously consciously connecting your spirit to every being. Whoa! The power of it is INTENSE and at first, you will only be able to handle it for a split-second… but I promise you, it’s totally worth it.
I took this photo of a fun directional sign on my trip to Norway earlier this year just because I thought it looked cool. 😎 Today I get to use it as the backdrop for my #mondaymantra and am struck by how TRUE this powerful affirmation is:
“I have come a long way, and I am not done yet. I keep learning, I keep growing, I am stronger every day!”
Sometimes we all need to lovingly remind ourselves of how far we have come, just so we can celebrate where we are starting from TODAY. You can do hard things, Love. You can learn something new. Remember that you are a miracle and that your life is not yet over. Make today AWESOME!
Loving my body is a daily choice, independent of my dress size or the number on a scale.
Taking good care of myself can mean many things: commitment to moving daily, eating foods that nourish and bring joy to my body instead of pain, speaking kindly to and about myself, tuning in to what signals my soul is sending.
This mantra can help you focus on loving your body no matter what size or shape you are currently living in. “I love my body and take good care of her each day.”
How are you choosing to take good care of yourself today?
Blessings are all around us. What are you doing to create space in your life for all of the goodness? Hint: Let Go of whatever is holding you down or holding you back from living your best life. You deserve good things!
Start your mindset off on the shiny path with this mantra: “I make space in my life for good things, great experiences, and amazing people.” Love you!
Today’s mantra is a positive affirmation and powerful reminder that we are ready for the next experience, the next adventure, the next lesson, the next step, whenever it is presented to us.
Even when we feel unprepared. Even when we feel nervous. Even when we feel afraid. Why? Because even when we “fail” at that next whatever, we are still learning, still growing, still awakening to the discovery of who we are and the strength within. That is where the healing happens. That is what we are ready for!
