While courage is saying yes, strength is saying no! No, to being someone we are not. No, to doing something that we can not afford. No, to doing something that may hurt someone. No, to accepting the bad behavior of others, even of those closet to us. No, no, no! The strength to say no comes from a source deep within. A source that can be tapped into at any given moment. Strength is standing tall in our convictions when all else is crumbling around us! There is kindness, compassion, and love in saying no! When we say no, we are teaching others how to treat us!

Courage is the ability to do something that frightens you. Pray that you have the courage to do the right thing, the courage to chose joy, and the courage to persist. Pray that you have the courage to live with your own truth and to make it an everyday occurrence. Pray that you have the courage to live with an open heart and be willing to love, to forgive, and to move on. Pray that you have the courage to laugh everyday and the courage to cry when you must. Pray that you have the courage to right any wrongs and the courage to accept the consequences.

It is the Christmas season, the season of Advent. No matter what your beliefs or your stand in regards to God, it is the time that we acknowledge Christ and His birth or, at least, the possibility and hope of His presence. No matter what your belief or your standing, now is a time of light and faith. That is what Christmas is. The coming of light into the world. If you can not bring yourself to look for the light in Christ, then look within yourself. Find the light and faith within you, let it grow deep and have it be a shining star for others to see. Faith takes practice, especially faith in oneself.

People are afraid of being alone. Why is that? You can be in a room full of people, in a marriage, or a friendship and still be alone. Being alone is not the same as being lonely. When we spend time alone it is an opportunity to enjoy our own company. The question then becomes, do we like our own company? It is only when we accept and find joy in who and what we are that the fear of being alone dissolves. Being alone is time well spent. It is a time to sort out, refresh, and reboot ourselves. It is a time to be selfish and self-centered. Imagine that, giving ourselves permission to put our own needs and wants first. A wonderful thought that we need to put into practice!

Food for thought on this beautiful Thanksgiving morning. Thanksgiving is traditionally about giving thanks, but why not dig a little deeper. As you are roasting your turkey or sitting with family and friends, be reflective. Think about last year’s Thanksgiving, where you were, who you were with, and what you were going through. Have things changed, have you moved forward? Have you cried more, or laughed more? Being reflective of the details of your life certainly will put a new spin on things. Are you having the Thanksgiving that you want? If not, change it, the day has only begun! The Thanksgiving that we have is a reflection of who and where we are in our lives.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.
