knowing when to make shifts

6 Nov

mini shifting — the process of making little changes  in your daily life so you can change the course in your journey.

do you ever sit and really analyze your life? do you dissect it down and wonder why you reached where you are now, how you got on this new path and what it all means? i do this frequently. i am a virgo and a seeker. i have a tendency to analyze the crap out of things. usually to the death of a subject. i enjoy the nuts and bolts of how and why things work, and how to fine tune and get the  most out of every drop of life.

changes in your environment happen every day. changes with the kids,  material possessions, friends, and loved ones. change is needed to bring in a mix to stale energy and to get it flowing again. change really is good if you can be open to it and it’s lessons. my life has changed so much in the past few years that i allow myself now to just sit in it and embrace it with curiosity. what will this bring i ask myself and wait with wonder. sometimes it is painful and having to deal with an ex regarding financial issues, kids and some are joyous like a new relationship and realizing he is your soul mate. these changes are what define us in life. our reactions, our passions, or ability to shift through them.

it makes me think about driving up the california coast in a little sports car. as you turn corners and go around mysteriously beautiful bends you need to shift. change a gear so you can pick up speed or slow down and be a little more cautious.  without shifting you could potentially miss out of some amazing beauty or you could put yourself in a questionable situation.

mini shifting is just simply adjusting your situation and taking action at that time. this concept can be used in any situation in your life.

if you are thinking about becoming organized in your home or office — mini shift your time and spend 20 minutes just picking up the loose items around one room. do the dishes and clean up the counters before bed. clean up your workspace on your desk so you come in the next morning feeling relaxed and on top of things.

this mini shifting concept can be used to organize your thoughts and for making life plans. take a moment and shift with a 10 minute stretch or meditation. imagine yourself letting go of a situation that no longer serves you and you replace it with a thought that makes you happy. all of this shifting daily will change your energy pattern and bring new opportunities, power and energy into your life.

try it — you will see. starting small and making daily positive shifts will produce big results later.

Daily affirmations and inspirations in my house

19 Jul

I have been doing a lot of thinking in the last few days on the topic of young girls and self esteem. I think back to my childhood and my experience as a young girl and how I felt about myself deeply impacted my life now.

I have been blessed with three beautiful daughters. My oldest who is 18 this week from my first marriage and then my other two from my last marriage of 13 years. Each one of them have had unique experiences and I see a huge difference in them due to the relationships with their fathers.

It took me until I was 36 to realize my personal value regardless who was in my life. Many feelings surfaced when my father passed 4 years ago, and I was able to deal with my insecurities as a person, a wife,  a woman, a mother and as an artist.

I feel it is so important to nurture ourselves starting at a young age. Lately my girls and I have been doing a lot of photo taking and dream board building. I also have been writing  inspirational and affirming notes and placing them around the house. You can never tell yourself too many times that you are beautiful and loved.

This is a little note I wrote for myself this last week. +

I am quirky,  individual and beautiful

from the top of my head to the tips of my toes

artistry and self expression run through my veins

I feel the energy of the power I hold inside me

waiting to fly — waiting to soar

my skin glows of radiance

the warmth from my source running through my cells

I am whole — I am enough

I am just the way I am supposed to be

light, energy, and fulfillment
