Finding Our Way Home

We all get lost, we all lose our perspective, and we all lose our voice at different moments in our lives.  This is a natural occurrence and a blessing in disguise.  For we can not find our way home, home to our true selves, without the instance of actually being lost.  There is divine truth in the saying “you have to lose to know how to win”.  You have to be lost, to find your way home!  I have certainly been lost, but the power of finding myself has far outweighed any trials that I have gone through to get there!  As Thanksgiving approaches, give thanks for being lost!

Thought For The Week….

“the power of finding oneself will far outweigh any trials that you have to go through to get there”

Holding Ourselves Back

Why do we hold ourselves back from everything that we want?  Is it because we don’t think that we deserve it, or have we been told that we can not do it, or are we afraid of failing?  For me, it has been a lifetime of being different and  being told that being different was not a good thing.  The people who love us, want to protect us, but sometimes that protection comes with a price.  Putting limits on ourselves is a habit that we must break free of.  Imagine living a life with no limitations!  What would you do?  Who would you be?  It is time for all of us to realize that there are no limitations in this world and we can be whomever we chose to be.

The Balance Of Giving And Receiving

As The Intuitive Cook, one can assume that I love cooking, and I do.  Though my deeper passion lies with food! Where it comes from, how it is made, and finally, how it is used and consumed.  Food has an energy like all living things and the giving and receiving of this energy is very important.  In life, we know that to receive a gift you must give a gift.  Apply this concept to food and nature.  When we take something from nature, acknowledge it, be thankful, and give something back to it.  Whether you feed the birds, provide shelter, or create a compost pile, balancing the giving and receiving in nature is an extraordinary act of energetic gifting!

Thought For The Week…….

“When we take something from nature, acknowledge it, be thankful, and give something back to it”

Breathing Deep And Being Thankful!

There are times when what is needed is the simple act of breathing deeply and being thankful.  It is quite easy to do  in a moment of happiness or joy, but what about a moment of sadness or anger, can it be done as seamlessly?  Well, the answer should be yes, even more so.  It is when we are sad or angry that are need to be thankful is greatest.  Being thankful focuses your attention on the wonders of your life, the beauty of the people that are around you, and all that you have. God has given us the gift of thankfulness.  Why not accept that gift and bring it to the forefront of your consciousness and allow it to take up residence. Breathing deep and being thankful is an outward sign of abundant inner strength.

What Faith Can Do

Faith in yourself, the divine, and the universe is what you need today.  In a world full of negative people and situations you must have faith that all is well in your world.  Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace.  Have faith that in the long run things will work out in your favor.  Have faith that you are doing the right thing.  Know who you are, be strong in your convictions and watch the heavens open up with help and support.  Faith can move mountains, part seas, and awaken in others an awareness of what is right and wrong.  Watch, with eyes wide open, as the miracles unfold in your life today.

Thought For The Week…

Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace

Asking For Help

To ask for help is a sign of strength, not weakness.  People are often portrayed as someone or something different than who they actually are.  Asking for help is when you get it.  Do not be afraid, even the most spiritual of beings, even if living a physical existence, need help and ask for assistance.  The day to day living of a spiritual life is at most, aw inspiring, and at its least, lonely and overwhelming.  It is what we do at our lowest moments that define us both physically and spiritually.  Ask for help directly, there is no shame, and I promise, you will get a response.

Thought For The Week…..

“It is what we do at our lowest moments that define us both physically and spiritually”

Accepting That Something Is Only Temporary

What you are going through and the job that you are doing is only temporary. Take heart and believe within your heart that this is only a temporary place of being.  Far greater things await you, but there is something to be learned from your experience right now.  Forget what it is that you will be doing, for that is already known. Go with the matter at hand.  Do the work that you must do right now, remembering that all things have their season and your season will come to pass.  Life is to be lived and there is fun to be had, even in your present state of being, abundance abounds.  Accept the temporary assignment with great love and joy!  It will change quite rapidly in the coming days!

Thought For The Week….

In your present state of being, abundance abounds!

Lessons And Moving On!

Move on, move on, move on!  Take your lessons to heart, acknowledge and accept them.  When you do that, life will propel you forward in unexpectedly wonderful ways.  Lessons can be painful, but mostly, when accepted, they are just a simple blip on the radar screen.  We need to notice them, chuckle a bit at their presence, and move on!  Getting past all of life’s lessons is truly what living is all about and discovering the results of those learned lessons is what will bring us a deep sense of joy! Cheers to learning your lessons!

Thought For The Week…..

Life is a series of lessons, once learned and accepted, propel us forward in miraculous ways!

How To Begin Your Day On A Positive Note

You must always remember that each of us has the power to change things in an instant.  To begin your day on a positive note, you must end the previous one on a positive one.  No matter how good or bad a day may or may not be, you can decide how it ends.  Even to say, thank goodness, that was a terrible day and I just do not want to do it again, changes a negative to a positive in a single second. When a day is great and we wish for another, it keeps that positive momentum going.  Remember, that while we sleep, we rest, so shouldn’t you give yourself the chance to dream of every wonderful possibility and bring that positive energy into each  new day?  Beginning your day on a positive note is truly that simple.

Thought For The Week…..

If you end each day on a positive note, then each day will start off on one!

Honoring Our Spirit

How does one honor their spirit?  You honor your spirit by simply listening to it and making a shift in the direction that it is leading you.  Your spirit senses the subtle changes in your moods, your reactions to certain circumstances long before you ever realize them yourself.  Adjustments are made on the spiritual plain and your direction is simply altered to adjust to what is best for you.  By honoring this movement, we honor ourselves and our path becomes clear.

Thought For The Week……

By honoring the movement of spirit, we honor ourselves, and our path becomes clear
