An Affirmation to Manifest Health, Abundance & Happiness

Christiane Northrup, MD, The Wisdom of MenopauseI found the affirmation below in Christiane Northrup's newly revised book, The Wisdom of Menopause: Creating Physical and Emotional Health During the Change and liked it so much that I wanted to share it with you.

"I am now experiencing perfect health, abundant prosperity, and complete and utter happiness. This is true because the world is full of charming people who now lovingly help me in every way. I am now come into an innumerable company of angels. I am now living a delightful, interesting, and satisfying life of the most widely useful kind. Because of my own increased wealth, health, and happiness, I am now able to help others live a delightful, interesting, and satisfying life of the most widely useful kind. My good--our good--is universal". ~ Catherine Ponder, The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity.

I also just discovered this video from Susannah Conway, author and photographer. She is promoting her blogging class, but what I liked best was her calm way of speaking and her practical advice about how to find your voice online plus info about her own process.

Kathy Crabbe: Guiding Your Creative Soul

Perfection Is ...

As I was snacking on some olives, camembert, blueberries and Belgian ale last night before the eclipse and Full Moon occurred in the wee hours of the morning, my husband I reflected upon what an odd day it had been; we had caught glimpse into people's souls that were previously hidden, as colleagues and even strangers told us the most revealing things about themselves! What a day, so I was reeeaaaalllly looking forward to the upcoming lunar revelations which would be happening while I slept @ 4:30 am pdt.

So, to prepare for the occasion I brushed myself with Oil of Azeztulite under the light of the full moon and blessed my stones in preparation for dreamwork. I chose Azeztulite, a white pearl, and a Lithium Quartz double terminated Crystal (from Kacha Stones) to meditate and dream with by placing them under my pillow.

Azeztulite brought me joy.

Lithium Quartz brought courage.

Pearl brought nurturing.

My hand painted oracle cards also called to me so I pulled a card from my Lefty Oracle deck and sat quietly with it for awhile, not actually looking at the card, but instead holding my hand over it's surface to sense the energy as I asked the universe: "May I open to the mysteries of my soul and accept myself with all my faults and limitations."

Happiness Is...knowing that perfection is RIGHT NOW.

A new surface today - the rough side of my masonite panel, primed and ready with three coats of house primer.

I've been writing and researching alot for the online course I'll be teaching - trying to determine the outcomes of the course. Perhaps my lunar based course is trying to teach me something; to let go of outcomes. Aren't there enough courses out there that beat that into our heads?

How about a course that seeks to awaken us to our passion, our instincts, our inner knowing, our emotions? I know how easy it is to cut oneself off from these ways of being. Society and the media cannot package and sell these qualities - we must spark and grow them on our own or in cahoots with like-minded souls who now, thanks to the internet are much easier to find.

Today I look at my pure white canvas board and I realize how important it is to be true to myself and to express this truth in all I do. Why, you may ask...Because happiness breeds happiness, passion - passion and joy - joy ... I revel in this fertility.

By picking up a pen, a brush (whatever works for you!) we focus our attention, our minds, upon the other, as we let our soul speak. It's truly amazing how we are able to manipulate our own feelings, change track, or get back on track, fall off track - do we even realize how powerful we are?

I can play our song, create you on canvas and then wash it all away....

"Can't fight the fighter, I keep losing ground and I can't hide the hider with you hanging around." From the song "Run For It" by Delerium

As I press myself into it's surface (the masonite) I leave an imprint from my soul to yours.

"Do you believe in dreams? That's how I found you." From the song "Fallen" by Delerium
