About missing you! Yes, like an old friend that you have not talked to in a while. I am missing connecting with you here on the blog and I thought you might be missing me too xox. In fact I want to hear more from you more often in the future. I would love to know if you have any questions you would like me to answer? I am collecting question to answer on my Vlog coming soon. Or if you just want to send a thank you letter or love note, suggestions, request. I always love those too! Here is my email addy email@example.com
Age makes little difference when a mother you are, And as you grow older, seems you’re more precious by far;
For your children all love you whatever they do;
You’re forever their mother though they’ve grandchildren too.
They may always live near you, far away roam,
But their thoughts turn often to Mother and home
Though long years have passed since they sat at your knee,
They will always be children in your memory.
You may sometimes be busy with a many a care
Or you may only sit in your favorite chair.
You may no longer have need of your old dusting cap,
And often your hands just rest in your lap.
You’ve given so much in this life you’ve been living,
And as years go by, you still keep on giving.
You give, as in sympathy you shed but a tear;
You give when you smile and call someone ” dear”
It may not seem much, but you help every day-
To chase away shadows that might darken the way;
You help as you sing when others feel blue;
You’ll always be helping by just being you.
So mothers, all mothers, we want each to know
Your children love you though they forget to say so;
And each of us here, as child young or old,
Knows that you’re loved, but you want to be told.
So now we would like to show in some little way
That we think of the oldest as special today;
And because you have lived more years than another, Today, Mom you are my honored Mother!

7. Women are stronger then they think.
8. Pray and listen.

My mom has been my biggest supporter in life. I love her dearly. We laugh all the time. I would not be the woman that I am today without my loving mother. She is my rock, my best friend and my biggest FAN and she loves me unconditional. She is wonderful example of what strong and courageous looks like. Thank you Mom for being my mother! xoxo Feel free to leave advice or comments what you learned from your mom in the comments section. As always we would love to hear from you.
In each and every one of us is a Divine spark. It’s the part of us that is whole, healed, perfect, enough, capable, loving, kind, peaceful, and courageous. Basically at our deepest cellular level we really are magnificence and full of love.
We often don’t recognize that part of ourselves. Instead we tend to beat ourselves up or compare ourselves to others and live in a constant state of fear and anxiety.
When we realize the only thing that is stopping us from our joyful path is ourselves. We can get out of our own way. The Power that created this incredible universe has often been referred to as love. Love is in us all and when we leave this earth we will return to the love.
Because God is love. You see when we realize we are Divine seeds of God. Just saying that is powerful. In fact right now say” I am a Divine seed of God” let that sit within in you. Take a deep breath! You are a Divine seed, child of God!
We actually have amazing Divine power we can tap into anytime we want. We are connected to everything and everyone and the power of love resides in us all. The whole universe is conspiring in our favor! When you realize that you can face and go through anything with a knowing all is well and its going to be alright! God has your back and that life loves you. Life can be abundant and happy and you can be set free from your fear. That is powerful realization. Sit with that for a moment. Wow, God has your back and life loves you! Knowing this you can accomplish anything you put your mind to do!
In each moment we can choose to think a higher and new thoughts and change our perception. A course in miracles calls this change in perception a miracle. I love that! So that makes you a miracle worker. We need to stop putting ourselves down and living small. It’s only when we shine our light and speak our truth that we give others permission to do the same.
You can be set free from the harsh, cold prison in your mind anytime you want. You hold in the key and transcribed on the key is the word love. Love is the way out. When you change your thoughts from fear to love you can change your life. Every thought we think and every word we speak is creating our lives. So remember think and speak consciously and loving. The sacred scriptures say “as a man thinketh in his heart so is he or she” Here are a few tips on how to rock, recognize and cultivate the Divine spark within you.
Change your thinking: Instead of playing the old stories in your mind like (i.e. I am hurt or I am not enough, I am in pain). Start to recognize your thoughts. Ask yourself? Are my thoughts serving me? If they are not! Change your thoughts. A few years ago while doing this work, I started using affirmations and statements of faith to help renew and heal my mind. I noticed I kept unconsciously saying” I am hurt” which is understandable coming from a very dysfunctional home life as a child and then attracting that abuse and dysfunction into my adult life and marriage with my ex-husband. It seemed the more I said I was hurt the more hurt I caused and felt. You see I AM is very powerful statement. We attract what we are not what we want. When I kept saying I AM hurt. The universe kept bringing me hurtful experience. Soon as I changed my thoughts and feelings to a new mantra” I AM loved and I AM healed” my experience started to change and I started to experience and attract more loving and healing experiences into my life. Our mind control our emotions. You can change the whole trajectory of your life by simply making a decision to change your thinking. I encourage you to start today. I believe in you.
Cultivate an attitude of gratitude: When you focus on what you do have instead of what you don’t have you create more room for wonderful things to come into your life. Gratitude is the great life sweetener and is a wonderful centering tool. Some people feel they have nothing to be grateful for. They feel everything is going wrong, they lost their job, their home, their car or their relationship. If you find yourself in that kind of state of mind. Take baby steps, start by being grateful for your breath and for being alive. We can all be thankful for life and the opportunity to start again.
Forgive Often: I love the quote by Mark Twain that so eloquently states that. “Forgiveness is the fragrance the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.” Forgives is also setting yourself free from past and all its hurt and pain. Forgiveness is letting go of the hope that the past could have been any different and moving on with a spirit of love. Some people from your past need to stay in your past. You can forgive them without bringing them into your future. Forgiveness is for setting you free to allow more love to flow in. When you find yourself being the one needing forgiveness from yourself or others. Quickly ask for forgiveness and forgive yourself and release the guilt or shame. Remember no lesson is learned without a few mistakes and nobody is perfect. Be gentle and graceful with yourself. Those that know better do better
You got to feel in order to heal: We need to get in touch with our feelings. It’s not practical to squash our feelings or numb out on drugs, sex, food addictions or dis-ease like anorexia or bulimia. In order to heal we must feel. Let go and work through the self hate, hurt, pain, anger, fear. Allow love to heal you. Love yourself through the pain. Love is something we choose, the same way we choose anger, or hate, or sadness. Find supportive loving communities and friends or even a therapist that will listen to you so you can open up and feel. Set yourself free.
Cultivating, recognizing your Divine spark within is possible. Just always remember to let the past go with all the old stories. Welcome and embrace love to flow in your life. Remember you are seed of God. You have a Divine spark. You can accomplish and do anything you put your mind to do. Live in that expanded thinking. Live in the present moment. Trust the future and that God and life loves you and always remember you are a part of that one love. Everything conspiring is conspiring in your favor. All is well and working together for your highest good. Allow the part of you that is deeply loving, powerful, intuitive and receptive to flow and expand and then live from that place.

You are a Divine Magnificent, Incredible, Brilliant Masterpiece. Never forget it. Feelings of discouragement will pass. Allow yourself to heal and feel your way through it.

This poem is for you if you been feeling a little discouraged during transitional times in your life. Just remember all things working for your highest good. Even when you don’t understand.
Don’t Give Up
When your backs against the wall
Don’t give up
When you feel you can’t move on
Don’t give up
When your would is caving in
Don’t give up
When your heart is crushed by all the weight of the pain or sickness
Don’t give up
Things will turn around be before you know
Don’t give up
Sweet joy will unfold if you
Don’t give up
Infinite love is watching over you
Don’t give up
Your dreams are closer then they seem
Don’t give up
God will lovingly see you through
Don’t give up
-Hold on tight and Don’t Give UP-
