Love it Up! How to Live Your Highest Standards

IMG_3297 - Copy

Affirmation: I live up to my highest standards with love and joy.

That’s my sister Amber, myself and my best friend Bea (right-to-left) on the Grand Canyon Skywalk, which is on the west rim. It was a long time dream of my mine to walk the Skywalk and so this image is me living up to my “highest” standards with love and joy. We are on a glass bridge 4000 feet above the canyon after all! What you might not be able to see from my calm demeanor and giant smile in this photo is I’m totally freaking out, but it was all worth it.

Today’s affirmation revolves around living up to your own high standards through love and joy. That means you don’t beat up on yourself when you’re not meeting your own standards or someone else’s for that matter. Instead we fill our hearts with joy and unconditional love for ourselves. The more love and joy we shine upon ourselves, the more we are able to meet and often exceed our highest standards.

I wrote today’s affirmation because for the past couple days I’ve had a shooting pain in my shin. According to Louise Hay’s book You Can Heal Your Life the emotional side of this pain comes from, “Breaking down ideals. Shin’s represent the standards of life.” I’ve been focusing on this affirmation since the pain arrived and it seems to be working because its finally starting to go away, so I thought I’d share.

If you don’t already have You Can Heal Your Life I definitely recommend it. It’s one of those books you’ll keep. YOU CAN HEAL YOUR LIFE. Remember you create your life, therefore you can heal your life.

What are your highest standards? Are you living them with love and joy?

Hello Love, it’s me!

Affirmation: Hello Love, it’s me. What is the most loving thing I can do for myself right now? 

Happy Valentines Day from sunny Palm Springs, California! May the light of your being be so full of love today. Whether you are in a relationship or on your own let love flow through you. Be open and receptive. You are loved!

Dr. Wayne Dyer says, “Love is the very essence of your being. Your objective is to ask love within you to make its presence known, to have an awareness of being so full of love that this is what you have to give away. By doing just that, you’ll attract more of what you’re giving away.”

Louise Hay says, “The more love we allow to flow out from us, the more there is within us and the more we receive. It is endless and timeless. Love for ourselves is the power that heals us. Practice as much as you can.”

Enjoy this day where we celebrate love. Be loving to yourself, your partner, your family, your friends and strangers. Make this day of love a day where everyone you encounter feels your love.

With love, light and faerie dust, ✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.✶*¨`*.✫

Finding Vibrational Harmony

Affirmation: No matter where I’m going, what I’m doing, I’m focusing on things that make me feel good.

The image above is definitely something that makes me feel good. Experiencing it is  magical, and something I hold very dear to my heart. I designed that with Anne Elizabeth for Living Fae. We put it up at the Sunset Campout every year put on by the Pacific Sound crew from San Francisco; an event that makes me smile just thinking about it.

I was inspired today by a YouTube video of Abraham Hicks talking about setting your vibrational tone and the importance of finding your vibrational harmony with source. Our vibration is key to creating the life we desire, it is key to our happiness. And when our vibration is aligned with source what we focus on manifests. That’s why it is so key to focus your attention on that which you desire and to be in a state of happiness simultaneously.

When we focus on something it shows up more because we make ourselves more aware of it. Just to give you an example listen to this video and try the exercise with Anthony Robbins.

Each of us is ultimately responsible for our own happiness. We make the choice. We can try and attribute it to outside circumstances or how other people are making us feel, but remember, we are the creators of our lives. We set the vibrational tone. So get in the most amazing, blissful, happy, peaceful, loving vibration you can imagine, and do whatever it takes to get there, because I believe its the most important thing worth living for. Remember the work you do on the inside reflects all around you.

And if something throws you off. It’s OK. It happens. Just give yourself a hug and get back to where you know you need to be.

Now, I’m off to Las Vegas tomorrow. It’s a very spontaneous adventure! I got an email yesterday about the You Can Heal Your Life Conference with Louise Hay in Las Vegas this Saturday, January 21st and decided to buy my ticket. If you’ve been reading my blog since the beginning you’ll remember I mentioned it was the book You Can Create  An Exceptional Life by Louise Hay and Cheryl Richardson that inspired me to start the blog. When I saw it I knew I needed to go, and certainly made me feel good.

Stay tuned!

Entering The Unknown

Affirmation: I trust life. I allow life to reveal itself to me. Life loves me and I love my exceptional life.

I have forever been a planner. A huge dreamer and the biggest planner. I planned everything, because it always gave me a sense of security and accomplishment; especially when I could see those planned out goals come to life.  I had it all planned out. I was going to be married at 27 to Prince Charming, have 2 children, live in California in a big mansion and work for Disney. Somewhere in between there I was going to be Quincy, but as I entered college I decided forensic pathology wasn’t for me.

My plan was perfect. Except now I’m 41, still not married, no kids, but I have more often than not achieved many of my dreams and goals. At 21 I achieved my childhood dream of working for Disney in their International College Program. At 30 I achieved a life long dream of living and working in California, and have for the last 10 years. I grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba so getting my visa and moving to California was a big deal, at least to me. I’ve had the opportunity to produce some exciting projects, meet and make friends with some very talented and successful people. I’ve danced the night away, and watched the sunrise over the ocean and the playa.  I’ve also been able to do some inspiring things that took form without being part of my plan like designing altars and sacred spaces, and writing and publishing my first childrens book The Land Beyond Time and the Faerie Master Spell Guide.

The last 6 months of my life have led me on a journey where I just couldn’t plan ahead though.  I’ve wanted to, but Life has really been leading me.  I think it has been all along, I just didn’t recognize it quite to the level I do now. I’ve really had to let go and put my trust in life. What I realized was that I had been basing my happiness on trust in results. In the past I trusted life if it gave me what I wanted (or thought I wanted), and if it didn’t it bummed me out, rather than just simply appreciating it for what it brings to you in every moment.

After reading You Can Create An Exceptional Life by Louise Hay & Cheryl Richardson I’ve further affirmed my conclusion that it might be best to continue not to plan and see what life has in store.  No Plan To Happiness let’s see where it leads us.

I hope you enjoy following along. I know we’ll create an exceptional life together!
