Mantra Monday 6.19.2017

This weeks Mantra Monday is going to return to the basics.

It’s basic in its simplicity but so freaking hard to master.

We all go through our ups and downs, and let’s be honest, our own worst critic is ourselves. We wouldn’t dream of saying half the things we say to ourselves to our family, friends or even strangers.

We have to be kinder to ourselves and more gracious and soft with our own words, so for the next week, just repeat this affirmation and remind yourself how freaking amazing you are!

Love and Light my radiant sun beams!

Forgiveness is usually easier said than done and it’s even harder when it comes to ourselves. I am here to tell you you can and should forgive yourself for whatever you feel guilty or negatively about. Sometimes the smallest things and the shortest moments can hold so much unnecessary space in our heart that is makes us hard to move forward in our lives.

We are all guilty of sitting in our beds at 1 am and thinking about those moments that happened years ago, those conversations where you wished you would of said or acted differently or moments that you wished never happen…FORGIVE YOURSELF! Literally take this moment and say “I Forgive Myself and Set Myself Free”. Release whatever is holding you back and holding you down and press forward. Accept all the good things coming your way and open yourself to the gifts of the universe.

Thank you Diana at PaperYarnMoon for the absolutely GORGEOUS image (I think this one may be my favorite!).

Mantra Monday 4.17.2017

“Happiness is my Path” and is chose it daily.

This Mantra is an especially powerful one and one we should all apply to our lives.  We all have the right to be happy in our present life times. Happiness is the soul’s way of saying “Yes, do more of this, this is elevating us”.

Keep track of things that are healthy that keep us happy and write it down. Look at it regularly and, not only be grateful for it, but do it more often!

Pick happiness every time!

Thank you Diana at PaperYarnMoon for the love and putting our affirmation into this beautiful image.

Mantra Monday 3.27.2017

Good Morning my Beautiful friends.

Yes, it is Monday already and it means another Mantra Monday. I realize the bulk of my blog posts are Mantra Mondays but why not? These are so much flipping fun!

Today I was listening to a podcast talking about how many of those on a “spiritual path” often actively chose happiness while consciously ignoring what many consider negative feelings thus ignoring a potential life lesson from your soul or even ignoring what could be a serious problem in your current lifetime.

This is my take on it, we all have a choice whether to walk around in a positive mood or a bad mood. I, personally make an effort to focus on the positives in my life BUT (this is a big BUT), I am always aware of what makes me upset, sad, angry and I analyze and think about why something or someone does not vibe with me (or just plain piss me off). I am conscious of it and while we are at it, we need these things we don’t agree with, in our lives. It give us a chance to learn about ourselves and helps us place a marker on our values. How can you do this? Look at what offends you and then ask yourself WHY it offends you. Get uncomfortable, squirm a bit and dig. Its these situations that really define you as an individual and creates clarity into who you truly are.

Digging can bring up some major shit. Hold that piece up, analyze it, smell it (yeah…gross right!), poke around a little, maybe even give it a little taste, then say thank you to it for helping you learn something about yourself and toss it in the potty and flush. Wash you hands! Cleanse yourself, acknowledge how you feel and why and then say to yourself “I deserve Happiness and Love”, because you absolutely do. In this lifetime, at this present moment, you deserve happiness and love, no matter where you have come from or where you are going. That poop you just looked at should not have a hold over how you are feeling. It may have helped shaped who you are today but it does not control you. You are worthy of all the positive experiences that are coming your way. You DESERVE Happiness and Love no matter what!

So, yes, I decide to actively choose happiness and love but I know I have some shit to learn from.

Thank you Diana at PaperYarnMoon for the beautiful artwork. Lets make this your Mantra for the week everyone.

Mantra Monday 3.6.2017

Today’s Mantra Monday plays on last week’s affirmation pretty well : “I release anything that doesn’t serve me” (if you missed last week’s mantra, you can check it out here).

Ask yourself the question “What am I keeping around that does not serve me?” Look around you? Try and spot 3 things in the room right now. I can tell you from where I am sitting, there is a coffee cup that has been sitting here since yesterday, I have a mountain of receipts that I emptied out from my purse this morning just sitting here and I can spot a few empty bottles of essential oils that I will probably never need. And just like that I cleared a little space in my environment. Now, if I am so pressed, I’m sure I can go into my newsfeed on FB and clear out groups and acquaintances that I really don’t need to hold space for. They clog up my feed and really serve more of an unnecessary distraction.

Release it and clear it. Old wounds and memories as well. They help mold us into who we are, but we don’t need to carry this load daily. Meditate over whatever situation you feel you are holding on to so tight and release it. Burning Palo Santo during meditation helps clear up blockages that you hold in your chakras too, so if you have some, give it a try. Repeating this mantra during meditation can also assist your brain to subconsciously work in moving past some of these blockages. This is one reason I love Mala necklaces with 108 beads, they help keep count and allows me to hit that magic number (Why is 108 a magic number? Check out this link for more info).

I hope these past couple of weeks helps you in releasing what no longer serves you.

Thank you Paper Yarn Moon for putting our mantra’s into art.

Mantra Monday 2.27.2017

Good Morning to you all and Happy Monday. As you know, its our Mantra Monday and I cannot wait to share it with you.

This is a great one and one I have been working on this past month and quite possibly the next. It’s all about letting things go that no longer serve me. Its all about quitting cords and ties that are of zero benefit to you and quite possibly even deplete you.

Cutting ties is sometimes easier said than done. Trust me, I am the queen of holding on to things, from clothes that I swear I will fit into by summer, to emails from retailers that have discount codes that I maybe will use later, acquaintances on FB that I really don’t talk to, and I also may be guilty of holding on to a LOT of crystals (but I’m not counting those…you can’t have too many crystals!)

But serisoulsy, do I need to hold on to so many friends on FB? Some even include ex boyfriends that I remained friendly with but literally NEVER talked to, not even the occasional like on the picture. So why do I have these people? Because sometimes I have trouble letting go. Why? I really don’t know. Perhaps it has to do with my childhood and growing up poor. I’m not sure but I do know that it is time to let go. Remove the junk, all the extra that no longer serve me. Get rid of clothes that I no longer wear and the biggest one is to STOP holding space for people that don’t deserve it because it brings down on your own vibrations. We have to remember to love ourselves.

So, what is our Mantra this week? “The more I let go, the better I feel” and boy do you ever. Release all the old that doesn’t serve you and stop holding space for the junk.

One thing you can do for those strong emotional cords that connect you to people you no longer wish to be attached to (trust me, the connection works both ways), imagine a physical cord connecting you and this person and imagine giant scissors cutting these cords and releasing this bond. If you need to physically use your fingers and pretend to cut (I do this), do it! Once you are done, thank the universe AND yourself and take a moment for yourself to replenish. I personally like to take a shower or bath and then have a nice cup of tea, show myself a little love.

As always, thank you Diana over at PaperYarnMoon for the beautiful art work.

 

Mantra Monday 2.20.2017

It’s Monday again (man the week flies when you are running around spreading L-O-V-E)

This week flows right into last weeks mantra and in addition, it I believe it helps remove those blocks of self doubt and low-self esteem. In addition, it aides in opening up our selves for love from others. Whatever you may feel you need in your life, this affirmation is wonderful.

“I am deserving and worthy of Love”, and you absolutely are. We all deserve to be loved AND most importantly to love ourselves, completely and truly. You are perfect and enough just the way you are. Also, if no one has told you today, “I love you!”

Thank you Didi at PaperYarnMoon for the beautiful image.

Mantra Monday 2.13.2017

Beautiful Day to all you Beautiful Souls.

It’s Monday you know for us Monday’s mean “Mantra Monday”. I do love our Mondays.

With Valentine’s Day creeping slowly creeping up on us (enter horror shriek here), I wanted to take a moment to remind ourselves, not only to spread love, but to love ourselves too.

For  many of us, it is so gratifying to send love to those we love, to shower them with gifts, love an affection, but we often times forget about ourselves. We have to remember that if our cups our empty, we cannot fill anothers, so take this week to LOVE yourself. Honor yourself and fill your cup.

Therefore, our mantra for this week is “I honor myself and my needs”.

I encourage you to take all the time you need to make sure your needs are met. Don’t go outside of yourself either by expecting your significant other to buy you flowers, simply go out and buy them yourself. Want a gift, gift it yourself.(Check out our stuff too :-D) . Don’t limit yourself to materials things either, a long bath with essential oils, an few hours with your nose in your book or a whole day dedicated to painting, music, or just simply an entire day of binge watching Netflix. Whatever you feel will fill you up, go do it. You have permission from your higher self and the universe looks forward to it.

Thank you Didi over at PaperYarnMoon for always putting our words into art.


Love and Light always,

Michelle

Mantra Monday 2.6.2017

Good Morning my beautiful souls. As you may have noticed, our Mantra Monday is a bit late this week. **Warning, this blog post is going to get REAL**.

It’s been a pretty hectic week for me personally as I try to balance my home life and business life. I feel sometimes that as I am drowning in laundry, dishes and dog poop (for some reason my doggies have decided to take the living room as their personal toilet) and in between homeschooling my 4 year old (which she is currently practicing writing her letters while I type this) and then somehow remembering to love myself all while showing love to everyone else, sometimes my cup runs dry, so flipping dry. Oh, and did I forget to mention I am working on my official Crystal Reiki Master/Teacher certification. And of course, I worry, I worry how I will be able to get new supplies in when I can’t find the time to post up what I have to sell. Oh yeah, we also moved about a month ago to a new home and you already know the amount of boxes in our home is insane!

Compared to other problems, my shit is easy. I am grateful for the life I live and what I am able to do, but it doesn’t take away that it is tiresome and exhausting at times and that is okay. I always trust that the universe will provide exactly what I need when I need it and this is my affirmation for the week. ” Everything I need comes to me at Exactly the Right Time”.

The universe has definitely blessed me this week with an unexpected financial gift which I am so grateful for and just like that, the supplies that needed to be purchased were ordered. I know its difficult to trust that what you need will be provided for and learning to trust is a challenge in itself but I invite you to give it a try this week and put it out into the universe and ask for exactly what you need.

Now, Ill be off working on some more gooodies while I wait for the dryer and my daughter finishes working on her alphabet.

Thank you Didi over at PaperYarnMoon for our picture this week.

Love and Light always,

Michelle 

 

Mantra Monday 1.30.2017

This week’s Mantra is very special to me and I use it regularly. It’s very simple yet, for me, extremely effective. I have shared it with family and friends and I have yet to hear it hasn’t worked for them. The Affirmation is “I am a Love and Money Magnet”.

As a small business owner, mother, and overall human who lives on this planet, unfortunately, money is very important in order to move forward. I know there always talk on how “money is the root of all evil” or ” money doesn’t buy happiness”…yes, it doesn’t buy happiness but it is, in my opinion, essential. I don’t hate money, I love money and what I can do with money, like help those around me, support my family, continue my business. I feel that if we removed this fear or negativity that comes with financial abundance, we can help remove our own blocks we have with money, thus allowing the universe to let it flow to us more freely. Money is not bad, money helps us achieve our goals. Until we live in a society where I can exchange one of my pieces for a new tire for my car, or my neighbor can exchange tech help for a groceries, then I will positively accept all financial abundance the universe has flowing my way.

And of course, love is always a good thing to have in our lives and I love love. I love people who embrace love and just love everything around them, even the small things. Like, I love the way fresh bread smells, I love the sound of the birds outside my window in the morning, I love they way my husband charges my toothbrush when I forget. I also love those who disagree with me, their opinions and positions allow me to reflect on my own and why I value some things over others.

I invite you to repeat this affirmation daily. Say it every night before going to bed until you fall asleep or use your Mala Necklace to count it out and let me know how it works for you. Believeing and repeating this mantra has brought many blessings into my life and it is hands down, my favorite when it comes to financial abundance.

Thank you Didi over at PaperYarnMoon for always putting our affirmations into a beautiful picture. Feel free to share or save. 

Many Blessings Always.

Namaste.
