new-moon-blessings

The New Moon is a time that promotes growth in all aspects of our lives. It is a powerful time to write our wishes and goals to stimulate new growth in our lives.

Write down all your intentions today. The most important thing to remember is to write with feeling, with intention. Your feelings for your intentions are important. A good day to journal, go within.  Your wants, blessings, needs.  Be very specific. Write that which makes you feel joyful, uplifted, grateful..

Read it aloud to the universe or whoever you would like to read it to ( Masters, Angels, Guardians..)  Later go outdoors and burn it safely giving it all to the universe. Be Grateful for all that You have and Stay happy and Blessed 🙂

Do you want to be right or happy?

“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” ~Lao Tzu

How many of you have often felt: “why can’t my partner listen to me?, she/he would see that I am right.” Isn’t this something a lot of us relate to? We acquire this “I’m right” mentality quite honestly. As we were growing up, we believed that the way things were in our family was the way things were in the world. Our parents were our main models for relationship and marriage. Unfortunately, our partner also formed their beliefs through their family, a different family than the one in which we grew up. Now what do we do? Could there be more than one “right way” to do something? Only after we get older and experience other couples and how they relate, or we begin to work on ourselves, can we even imagine the possibility that there might be something different than what we grew up accepting.

What is more detrimental to happiness than the pursuit of being right … which is to say, being seen as right. For personal proof of this, consider the people you know who are most insistent on their politics, their patterns, their viewpoint, their way… they tend to judge the most, insult the most, complain the most, and suffer the most.

Honestly try this – the next time you KNOW you are right about any situation with a anyone close to you whose viewpoint opposes yours, just try and let go of the need to BE right and give your opinion.

Even when that “I know I am right and he is wrong” feeling fills you,stop yourself from reacting this time.

Think about it – Is there truly a reason to even pursue the feeling? Will resolving the difference really lead to an important benefit, such as preventing accidents, improving health, making or saving money or the like? If so, consciously remind yourself to proceed softly and kindly this time … remind yourself (and tell the other person!) that you are pursuing this discussion gently only to achieve the desired benefit, not to be seen as right.

After this first time of letting go of the need to be right — even and especially if it means the other person will think they’re right – watch what happens. Most probably, Nothing – your world won’t collapse. Things won’t fall to pieces because you didn’t try to prove that your point was right.

Walk your talk and watch people ( in time ) follow suite. They ALSO end up backing off the need to be right, making life all the more pleasant.

Let’s just keep in mind that our blessing in life is The pursuit of happiness

Self esteem – strongest factor for success

Posted on Updated on

The strongest factor for success in all aspects of our lives is self-esteem.

When we develop a strong sense of self worth, we have more faith in all that we do.

We need to believe in ourselves, believe that we are capable of visualising, manifesting, creating all that we want. With a great sense of self-esteem we also feel we deserve it.

Believe You can do it
Believe You deserve it And
Believe You will get it.

Believe in yourself, have the faith, trust yourself..

Decide to be happy now – It is your choice

Posted on Updated on

Simple steps to happiness.

A simple step we need to remember is how much we have and how grateful we should be in life.
Count your blessings. Practicing Gratitude is a wonderful way to achieve happiness. Try and daily write down a few things daily that you have to be grateful for.

Look within. Happiness lies within us – not in the shoes we buy, the home, the car, the clothes etc.. Not in going to a spa, on a holiday.. Living on external stimuli to experience happiness is short-lived. Happiness comes from within us.
“A happy life consists in tranquility of mind.” – Cicero

Remember that happiness is in your control. Don’t give the power away to another to snatch away your happiness.

This is an article on 22 “fun” ways to be happier now 🙂

10 instant tips to be happier now.http://edition.cnn.com/2009/LIVING/personal/08/04/rs.ten.ways.be.happier/index.html?eref=rss_us

Happiness is achievable, for all of us

A Place to share your Gratitude.

Posted on Updated on

We wake up daily with so many things on our minds. So much to do, complete, achieve…
In the process often we lose that connection with ourselves.

We sat often in groups and have chanted and chatted and shared a lot. One morning i thought everybody seems to wake up or at some point during the day seems to get onto either Facebook or some other form of social media to connect with what’s happening in the world.

11008435_10152565176582554_4589072279023125719_n

So I decided to start a group to Thank the Universe for something personal. Why are we so scared to share something so personal and profound – we can share what we do, what we eat, where we eat,what we wear, where we go…
So why not something we are Grateful for too.

We often share our emotions via photographs or links we see. But No! Here we are only allowed to share what we feel, straight from our hearts.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/641898915916480/664840886955616/?notif_t=group_comment

Please do join us in this wonderful group 🙂 It is a closed group But just ask and I will add You on.

Looking forward to a lot of sharing.

With love and GRATITUDE 🙂

Angel Tarot – Horoscope for March

Posted on Updated on

“ Angels love everyone unconditionally. They look past the surface and see the godliness within us all. They focus only on our Divinity and potential, and not on our “faults.” So angels aren’t judgmental, and they only bring love into our lives. You’re safe with the angels, and you can totally trust them. “

MAKE IT HAPPEN – the international women’s day theme.

Every Year, every month, and every day we tell ourselves that we want some changes in our lives.

This Year the Angels are asking You

“Are You ready to make it happen? “

AngelTherapyOracleCards_1

Aries :. Aries, Fresh organic fruits and vegetables give you a boost of high life-force energy, which elevates your spiritual frequency. Your Angels are asking You to honor your body and your Spiritual path by only ingesting high-vibrating foods and beverages. As you eat more of these foods you will experience more clarity and increased sensitivity to energy. Be sure to call upon your Angels if You need any help during this phase of your life.

Action Steps: Lie down or sot in a quiet location and say:
“ Archangel Raphael, I call upon you now. I ask that you adjust my appetite and cravings so they are completely focused on healthful foods and beverages. I am now willing to release any attachments to unhealthful substances. Please guide my dietary choices so they are pure, high vibrating, and filled with Divine life-force energy”

Taurus: The Angels are telling You Dear Taurus to honor and respect your deep sensitivity, as it is a gift to all of us. You are being reassured of the positive qualities within your gift of sensitivity. You are one who will accurately know whether or not a new acquaintance is trustworthy. You need to trust this feeling more often and tap into that energy. You are a peaceful person by nature so call upon the Angels this month to steer You towards peace loving people and keep all others away from You. Surround yourself with gentleness in all areas of your life.

Action Steps: Live plants are of the Angels favourite tools to clear away any physical and emotional toxins. Today put a live potted plant near your bed so that tonight its energy can clear and transmute anything you may have absorbed. Just as plant transforms toxic carbon into breathable carbon, it will also transform fear energy, so you’ll sleep peacefully and wake up refreshed. Take care of this plant and call upon the fairies for help with this.

Gemini: My Dear Gemini. The Angels are asking you to align your actions so that they match your values and inner knowingness of what’s right for You. You have been asking some questions about increasing your happiness and this card comes in response to that. The Angels say that engaging in activities that you feel guilty or ashamed about erode your self-confidence and self-esteem. Conversely, You can feel great about yourself by only doing that which you feel is right. The Angels can help you change or heal relationships so you can bring your entire life into alignment with your inner truth.

Action Step : Lie down and allow your imagination to roam ( like daydreaming ) Instruct your mind, heart and soul to show you a mental movie of your living life at it’s highest and healthiest level. Notice how you feel.
Then say
“Archangel Michael I ask that you help me arrange my life and daily activities so I’m fully immersed and engage in actions that reflect my higher self. Please help me let go of any behaviours, habits, or actions that have given me any guilt or shame in the past.; and replace them with actions I feel good about “

Cancer: You my Dear Cancer friends are getting the same message as our Aries friends. Fresh organic fruits and vegetables give you a boost of high life-force energy, which elevates your spiritual frequency. Your Angels are asking You to honor your body and your Spiritual path by only ingesting high-vibrating foods and beverages. As you eat more of these foods you will experience more clarity and increased sensitivity to energy. Be sure to call upon your Angels if You need any help during this phase of your life.

Action Steps: Lie down or sot in a quiet location and say:
“ Archangel Raphael, I call upon You now. I ask that you adjust my appetite and cravings so they are completely focused on healthful foods and beverages. I am now willing to release any attachments to unhealthful substances. Please guide my dietary choices so they are pure, high vibrating, and filled with Divine life-force energy”

Leo: This card comes to you because the angels want to help you feel comfortable with your spiritual power. Divine power flows through you when you hold the intention to do whatever your heart desires. This is not a personal or ego driven force, so it is safe for you to feel this power. When you intend to use this power in the service of love, you experience harmony in all your activities. So get comfortable and allow this power to steadily and evenly flow through you.

Actions Steps: Tightness in your stomach means that you are experiencing a power struggle; either that someone is trying to control you or you are confused about your own power. The next time you feel this say “Archangel Michael, please help me step into my divine power with grace and gratitude.”
Notice yourself and the situation easing into a win-win solution.

Virgo: It is safe for you to be powerful and take charge of your life in positive days, Dear Virgo. This card has come to You as the angels wish to help you with issues concerning power and control. The fact is that you are powerful, it does not matter whether you feel it or if you if you are afraid of your inner might.
It is absolutely safe for you to use your power in loving ways. The angels will not allow you to abuse it. Just remember that power does not equate aggression; it simply means being completely authentic to yourself and others. You also need to remember that no one is controlling you, or can control you without your permission.

Action Steps: Relax and focus on your solar plexus ( behind your belly button ) and say: Archangel Michael, I call upon You now. Please cut any cords of fear from my solar plexus to anyone whom I’ve given my power away to. Please give me the courage to take responsibility for every aspect of my life”

Libra: Dear Libra, You are highly sensitive to chemicals, additives, processed foods, and energies right now. Respect your sensitivity by avoiding harsh items, situations and relationships. You need to understand your body’s profound sensitivity. You may experience confusion on how to deal with overwhelming situations and try to self medicate or try other substances to shield yourself from harsh energies. This card is asking you to deal with your sensitivities in a healthier way. The angels want to help you detox yourself from chemicals and processed foods. They also want to lead you away from disagreeable situations and relationships, so allow these changes to occur.

Action steps; Relax in a quiet location and say “Archangel Raphael and Michael, please come to me. I ask that you detoxify my mental, energetic and physical body right now” Feel the different sensations in your body and then say: “Thank You Archangels for this assistance. Please help me stay grounded, and shielded with divine love and light”

Scorpio: Dearest Scorpio. Pay attention as your body is receiving accurate messages from the divine. Your angels want you to know that you are receiving divine messages even when you are not noticing them. These are coming from your physical and emotional senses, as your body is extremely sensitive to subtle energies. Sometimes you may not understand your feelings, yet they do have accurate, underlying wisdom. You have received this card as you have asked a question and your body has answered through feelings. You are urged to trust your feelings, and act upon them without delay. Ask your Angels to guide and protect you through your sensations so you can understand these messages more clearly.

Action Steps: Notice any tension in your body. Close your eyes and imagine having a conversation with this tense muscle group. Why are you tense? Listen for the answer which will come as a thought, feeling, words or even a vision. Your body tells you how you are reacting to your job, relationships, friends..
Trust your body’s truthful wisdom!

Sagittarius: Dear Sagittarius, this card indicates that you have a strong connection with one or more ascended masters (Ganesh, Mother Mary, Jesus, and Quan Yin and others), who are helping you with the situation you’ve inquired about. They are powerful teachers and healers who once walked the earth. You don’t have to be a religious person to warrant an ascended masters attention. The only qualification is a sincere and pure desire to work with a deity for the betterment of humanity and the planet. The first ascended master who comes to your thoughts are the beings that are helping you.

Action Steps: Think of the first ascended master that comes to your mind and hold a mental image of his or her painting. Stay quiet and notice any feelings, pressure change, warmth as you tune into their prescence. Send pure love from your heart to the masters and feel the love return hundredfold.

Capricorn: Express yourself Dear Capricorns and awaken your psychic senses through the magical power of music and movement. The angels see the need for creative expression and balance of work and play. Singing and dancing are powerful ways to open your creative channels and feel the freedom of fully expressing yourself. You can boost your self confidence with these activities, realize hidden talents and also gain a greater sense of divinity within yourself. Many women discover their inner goddess through belly dancing or hula dance.

Action steps: Turn down the lights in a room where no one can disturb you and turn on your favorite music. Sway to the music in any way you like. Let your body lead the dance, don’t think about the movements. Sing and enjoy ☺

Aquarius: Cancel, Clear, Delete. Use only positive words and thoughts, as they’re rapidly manifesting into form. Ask the angels to cancel the effects of past negative thinking. Have you been complaining or worrying too much lately? This card indicates that You have been using negative affirmations to describe yourself and your situations. Be more aware of what you say, think and write about yourself. Your past choice of words has blocked you but the moment you choose positive words the barrier is removed. Caffeine, nicotine, sugar are some of the stimulants that cause your mind to race with worry.

Action steps: If you catch yourself saying something negative, stop and sweep your hand at the wrist in order to push the energy of your words away from you. Say cancel, clear, delete to undo these effects.

Pisces: It is absolutely safe for you to see the energy of love in all of its forms, such as angels, auras and visions. You are having visions about your future and are wondering whether these are real or your imagination. You have natural clairvoyant tendencies. The angels assure you that you are having accurate insights. Be aware of all the clairvoyant messages you receive via shapes,colors, dreams, recurring numbers, songs etc. Be aware of signs, symbols, coins, feathers.. these are all messages. Notice and trust all you see with your inner and outer vision.

Action steps: Sit quietly and say “Archange; Raphael and the Angels of Clairvoyance I call upon you now to surround you’re my head with your healing energy. Please clear my third eye of any old fear energies. Entities, or other blocks or intrusions” Inhale and Exhale deeply.

The Metta Prayer – as requested after yesterdays Chanting :)

Posted on Updated on

The Metta Prayer
The Buddha gave a beautiful teaching on the development of lovingkindness called the Metta Sutta (also known as the Karaniya Metta Sutta). I’ve adapted the words of the sutta to formulate them as an aspiration that can be repeated in a prayer-like way.
522534_434327063289308_1043384144_n

In order that I may be skilled in discerning what is good, in order that I may understand the path to peace,
Let me be able, upright, and straightforward, of good speech, gentle, and free from pride;
Let me be contented, easily satisfied, having few duties, living simply, of controlled senses, prudent, without pride and without attachment to nation, race, or other groups.
Let me not do the slightest thing for which the wise might rebuke me. Instead let me think:
“May all beings be well and safe, may they be at ease.
Whatever living beings there may be, whether moving or standing still, without exception, whether large, great, middling, or small, whether tiny or substantial,
Whether seen or unseen, whether living near or far,
Born or unborn; may all beings be happy.
Let none deceive or despise another anywhere. Let none wish harm to another, in anger or in hate.”
Just as a mother would guard her child, her only child, with her own life, even so let me cultivate a boundless mind for all beings in the world.
Let me cultivate a boundless love for all beings in the world, above, below, and across, unhindered, without ill will or enmity.
Standing, walking, seated, or lying down, free from torpor, let me as far as possible fix my attention on this recollection. This, they say, is the divine life right here.
Translated and adapted by Bodhipaksa from the Pali Metta Sutta.
