During these holy days...
May you experience moments of inner peace.
May you experience joy in simplicity.
May you experience connection with your essence.
May you have quiet moments for appreciation and reflection.
May you release any judgement that you're feeling towards yourself.
May you release any guilt or blame that you've been carrying around.
May you remember that your Inner Being is always with you.
May you allow yourself to dream about your deepest desires.
May you reconcile (even if it's just in your heart) with those
that you unintentionally hurt and that you felt hurt by.
May you gain clarity about your next step.
May you find comfort in faith that your path is unfolding.
May you kindle and rekindle your inner light
as often as your need so you can feel whole and enough
just as you are.
Tuning into myself.
Not resisting. Not competing.
Inviting clarity, satisfaction, joy.
Blessing the moment.
Trusting the higher power.
Noticing the thoughts I am entertaining.
Noticing when they feel good and inviting more of them.
Noticing when they don't feel good and learning
to let them pass or redirect them.
Everything on the path is the path.
With the twists and turns, life feels rich.
I am choosing alignment...
alignment feels like love,
it feels like satisfaction.
My power is in the now.
Not yesterday, not tomorrow.
I choose love over fear.
Connection over rejection.
Authenticity, Intention, Inspired attitude,
Creativity, Discoveries, Gratitude, Faith.
They support my wellbeing.
Remembering my worth, my place in the cosmic plan.
Here I am...
Alive. Blessing this moment.

I would like to invite you to take a few moments to reflect and look at the beliefs you have about yourself. Perhaps this will require more than just a few moments, since we are talking about ingrained beliefs, but notice what comes up when you answer this question:
Do you feel that you are enough the way you are, or do you feel like you always have to prove something to others in order to feel worthy?
We are conditioned by our environment that we are not good enough the way we are, that we always need to know more, that we need to do more, that we have to perform in a certain way in order to have value.
Isn't it insane to live our lives with this belief?
This feeling of not being enough can spill into our personal relationships and our choice of work/jobs. The pressure that we always need to know what we’re doing next and what we’re doing with our lives can be very limiting to our expression and block us from living in flow.
Sometimes we just have to sit with the unknown. It doesn't mean giving up on our dreams and desires, but simply being open to how it will come about.
We also don't need anyone's approval to feel whole, to feel enough and worthy.
We can choose to see ourselves in our wholeness, and that is a practice. It means that we might need to ignore other people's opinions and perceptions about who we are and what we should be.
This past month I spent many many hours communing with nature - walking on the beach, watching the waves, the birds, smelling the flowers and touching trees. These solo moments in nature allow me to just be, as I observe its perfection and contemplate the sweetness of life. It’s especially helpful when I am going through something challenging and need to feel more balanced and replenished. Nature is medicine.
I encourage you to take a moment for yourself (daily) to affirm and contemplate the idea of being enough and truly give yourself permission to feel it, to remember your essence.
Don't wait for anyone’s validation or understanding of who you are.
The universe adores you but it cannot yield to you differently than how you feel about yourself.
You are enough and you are lovable, just the way you are.
A new poem with a beat ! :-)
May the past be put to rest
I see its gifts, it was not a test
In the present I do my best
I plant (and water) the seeds of what I want to manifest
I can raise my vibration again (and again)
Even and especially when I feel the pain
The contrasts were not in vain
I own how I feel, no one to blame
My inner being knows my path
Sometimes I cry, sometimes I laugh
My emotions are my guiding system
All I have to do is to "listen"
I feel the wind, I feel the grass
I dance and honor my body’s inner compass
I sing with birds, I touch a tree
I'll cast no shadows, we are here to be free
I follow my own rhythm,
Love and joy give me freedom
I shape my reality with my beliefs
Sometimes I attract a storm, sometimes a breeze
It matters the Energy that we vibrate
That's how we create
This world is our playground
We all can make our own sound
I've got nothing to win or to lose
I am here to create my own muse
Happiness and worthiness are my birthright
May we all shine our own inner light.
A flock of birds fly in the sky, in unison they dance to life.
A butterfly flutters by, the present moment is its muse.
You may seek joy in the extraordinary,
But don’t miss it in the ordinary.
Look around and be amused,
Find a reason to feel enthused;
More focus on appreciation
less time given to frustration.
Forgive yourself for your mistakes,
Learn from the experiences for your own sake.
When you feel that life is tasting sour,
Step away and go to happy hour
Or seek delight in a hot shower,
Just don’t give away your inner power.
