Goddess Blessings!

I had a very relaxing and rejuvenating summer. The list I posted in June of 40 fun things to do this summer was my inspiration to pick one particular item and dedicate myself to that: learning to play the ukulele! O, what fun. I had no idea how easy it is to play and how versatile it is and what a great, resonating sound can come out of such a tiny instrument. I have always played guitar, so learning to play the chords was fairly easy for me, but I think that a lot more people would play ukulele if they would just give it a try. So, I found this little 5 minute youtube video that teaches you how to play the ukulele, well, in 5 minutes! Check it out, be inspired. Get yourself a ukulele and have fun!

If you follow your highest excitement, more joy and love and excitement are sure to follow. So, have fun this summer. Having fun is the best thing you can do for your health and your entire life.

4 Ways to Create a Bliss Board and More Bliss in Your Life

blissboard

by Luzia Light

“The main event has never been the manifestation; the main event has always been the way you feel moment by moment, because that’s what life is.” ~ Abraham

The word bliss board is sometimes used interchangeably with vision board or dream board, but I like to create a bliss board for a slightly different purpose. Basically, the idea is to collect images, quotes and power words that simply make you feel blissful, that let your heart expand in joy. These images obviously can be part of your goals and dreams but don’t have to be at all. You could collect images of butterflies, seashells and unicorns without the intention of manifesting a unicorn on your front lawn by tomorrow morning.

The purpose of the bliss board is to shift your vibration. An image of a warm blanky by a fireplace may help you imagine sitting there doing nothing but enjoying the warmth and comfort. Or an image of a hammock on the beach may help you to imagine listening to the waves gently rolling along the sand as you relax and drift off into your afternoon nap in the sun. Instead of closing your eyes and imagining that you are in your ‘happy place’, open your eyes and look at your Bliss Board. Colours, food, animals all have the power to stir positive, expanding emotions in your heart and soul. This is what you want to create: positive vibrations of joy. And if you can get into a blissful state even for a short time, your energy will shift and your point of attraction will change. You will automatically attract blissful things, people, events and situations into your life.

Here are some suggestions on how to create a Bliss Board:

1. Pinboard/Posterboard Bliss Board
Collect images and words from magazines, brochures, newspapers, postcards, or google images and print them out. Then pin them on a pinboard or glue them on poster board. Don’t think about manifesting a car, or a house or Italian shoes, think simpler: pick any image that invokes positive feelings.  This basically sidesteps the resistance that often creeps up when we work with vision boards. You may look at the red convertible sports car on your board, but then think: Yeah, right, this is never going to happen! How? How could it even happen? There is just no way…. etc. etc.  When  you simply choose images of landscapes, flowers, paintings etc, there is no resistance, you can just simply sit there and enjoy and let yourself be enveloped by bliss!

Note: as I am writing this, a colibri just visited me on my balcony! This is a perfect example: I just created a bliss board and I’m writing about bliss and then joyful little things like colibris wander (or fly) into my life. (-:

2. Pinterest Bliss Board
Consider creating a Bliss Board on Pinterest. It’s so easy, all you have to do is type the word bliss or joy or happiness and hundreds of images show up for you to choose from. Here is a great example of a Pinterest Bliss Board:

3. Desktop Wallpaper Bliss Board
You could also create a digital collage and make it into your desktop wallpaper. Or simply choose a really beautiful wallpaper for your desktop that creates divine feelings of joy and bliss every time you look at it.

4. Gallery Wall Bliss Board
You could also create a gallery wall in your living room or hallway. Simply collect a bunch of old picture frames, then fill them with beautiful images that make you feel blissfully divine! Consider pictures of your beautiful children or pets, or your last vacation in Puerto Vallarta, things you already own that you absolutely love, anything that makes your heart and soul sing.

Have fun!

Inhale Exhale

inhaleexhale

“Being able to stay centered and calm in difficult or chaotic situations is an essential skill. The more you practice this technique throughout the day, the easier it will be to use when you need a quick centering practice.

The Centering Flow:

Place one hand on the lower abdomen (the second chakra) and one hand at the mid-chest (the heart chakra). Imagine your breath and energy moving back and forth between the two hands with each breath. Focus on the lower abdomen and the heart and give the mind a rest from any concerns. Do this for 10 to 20 breaths.”

Abundance Prayer

divineabundance

Abundance Prayer

From The Light of God that I Am,
From The Love of God that I Am,
From The Power of God that I Am,
From The Heart of God that I Am
,

I Decree

I dwell in the midst of Infinite Abundance.
The Abundance of God is my Infinite Source.
The River of Life never stops flowing.
It flows through me into lavish expression.
Good comes to me through unexpected avenues
and God works in a myriad of ways to bless me.

I now open my mind to receive my good.
Nothing is too good to be true.
Nothing is too wonderful to have happen.
With God as my Source, nothing amazes me.
I Am not burdened by thoughts of past or future.
One is gone. The other is yet to come.

By the power of my belief,
coupled with my purposeful fearless actions
and my deep rapport with God,
my future is created and my abundance made manifest.
I ask and accept that I am lifted in this and every moment
into Higher Truth.

My mind is quiet.
From this day forward I give freely and fearlessly into life
and Life gives back to me with magnificent increase.
Blessings come in expected and unexpected ways.
God provides for me in wondrous ways.
I am indeed grateful.
And I let it be so.

Infusing Your Life with Positivity and Abundance

beachflowers

“We can be single-minded in building [...] wealth by putting as many things into our life as possible that remind us about living abundantly. So, I call that infusing your life with positivity, it’s like at every point in your day you’re being reminded of your goals, you’re being reminded that you are already wealthy and that you’re working everyday towards building more wealth.

A couple of examples, you know, dream boards on your walls, listening to subliminal affirmations about money, get in your car and listen to a CD instead of listening to the radio about, you know, doom and gloom news, not watching the news at night but instead maybe reading a money book; being surrounded by people who are also working on their money mindset, maybe you’re in a mastermind about money, or talking to your mentor, your entrepreneurial friends about money.

That is one way that you can be really single-minded on money and being reminded all the time about money but not being obsessed about it to the point where you are neglecting the other things that are really just as important, if not more important, in your life than building your own financial wealth.”

~ Goddess Denise Duffield-Thomas

“This is a great time to celebrate, to appreciate your blessings, to look for the good in everything. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of growth and abundance – so this is a fortunate Full Moon. Notice the abundance around you. Notice all the things that you do have, because when you focus on those things that you enjoy, that you love, you put your focus there, that’s where they grow. And this Full Moon in Sagittarius is all about growing new seeds, and bringing more joy, more inspiration into your life. Time to learn, grow, see the big picture of your life. With Mercury retrograde as well, this is a great time for research, rejuvenating, relaxing!! Enjoy!!”
