Celebrate the Love You Are

“To love another person is to see the face of God” ~ Les Miserables
February is the month to celebrate love! Though I feel it is to be celebrated daily, it is a wonderful time to reflect and do something special for those we love. I usually buy a special treat for my children and make one of our favorite meals. I will also do something special for myself. Valentines is a  special time to celebrate and let those I love know how much I love them.

I have some self-reflection questions for you this Valentines.  Have you included YOU in your Valentines celebrations”? Will you be doing anything special to celebrate who you are and what you have to give others? When we give to others we are sharing a part of ourselves. Whether we give through a gift, a kind gesture, or share our affection, it is an extension of who we are. We are celebrating and sharing the love we are with others.It is also wonderful to receive from others. The perfect balance of giving and receiving allows us to feel whole and complete. It reminds us of the divine love within us that is eternally connected to God.

Self Criticism and negative thoughts create a barrier to love. Love can’t get in or out.  When we have a deep sense of self love, we can genuinely love those around us completely and without conditions. Self criticism spills over into your relationships like poison. Learning to master your self talk takes lots of practice! As you are persistent with mastering your thoughts by choosing the positive ones, the love that you are will shine brighter!

If you struggle with self criticism here are some steps to help you release them and become free:

1. Write down three negative thoughts that continue to pull you down and block you from giving and receiving more love?
2. Reflect on how long you have had these thoughts. How old were you when you started to believe them? Who did you hear them from?
3. Reflect on how these thoughts make you feel. Write down your feelings on the paper.
4 Ask yourself if the negative feelings are serving you in anyway? Then reflect on how you are being limited buy believing these negative thoughts and feelings.Are you ready to let them go?
5. Write down on a separate piece of paper what positive thoughts you want to choose to believe about yourself, about love, and who you are.
6. Destroy the paper with the negative thoughts. You can burn it, tear it up, or crumble it up and put it in the trash. Allow yourself to be aware of what you feel in your body when you do this.
7. Repeat your positive thoughts out loud ten times. Notice how your body feels when you do this.
8. Repeat this as often as needed to get rid of negative thoughts.

This is one of the most powerful tools I share with my coaching clients to help them break free from self criticism. It has been a powerful tool in my life and allows me to celebrate who I am and express who I am in the world freely. I share this with you because I know you have an infinite amount of love within you. This world needs your love! Those around you need your love! Your love  is powerful and can make this world a better place. It begins with changing YOUR WORLD through loving yourself first. So I  invite you to let go of anything that is in the way of you fully embracing the love that you are. The time is now to celebrate who you are!

Sending my love wrapped in peace and joy!

Blessings,

Questions that Open the Possibilities for Change

I begin my day walking in nature, pondering life, and asking God questions. One of the first questions I ask is, “How can I make a difference in the world?” This is a great way to be open to align myself with my purpose and God’s will. Some of the things we do may be grand and others things may be small. All are essential to benefit humanity. Through small and great things, we can make a positive change that will have a ripple effect on others, including ourselves.

These 10 questions can open up positive loving energy in your life and have a positive effect on those around you. Remember not to let your mind try to figure out the “How?” Let the universe figure out the how. Just open the door to the possibilities of the question you ask.

There are unlimited possibilities of how your day can unfold. Asking questions opens the doors to possibilities. These are just a few examples.  I suggest thinking of some of your own. It is important that you make it personal between you and God. If you will practice asking questions in the morning it will open your heart to the goodness within you, and the goodness in the world.

I suggest asking with real intent, humility, and a desire to serve others.   The best time to ask is first thing in the morning. Then go about your day and allow the opportunity to present itself. Then watch the miracle happen…………

 

1)      “How can I make a difference in the world?”

2)      “How can I show someone I love them today?”

3)      What emotions can I let go of today?

4)      How do I turn my weaknesses into strengths?

5)      Who do I need to forgive?

6)      What am I holding onto that no longer serves me?

7)      How can I enjoy more beauty in my life?

8)      Who can I kiss, hug, and tell I love you today?

9)      How can I share my spiritual gifts today?

10)   How much love can I accept from God today?

 

There is something more that happens than just receiving the answer to these questions. If you allow yourself to be guided you will witness the beauty of spirit unfolding before your eyes. It is a great tool to free your mind and open your heart to what is available to experience through divine power.

It is worth the experience. Give it a try!

Love and light,

How Great is the Morning?

What I feel inspired to share with you, is how I start my morning. The actions that I take in the morning have a huge impact on the rest of the day. I felt it was important I share my experiences, so you could begin to reflect on how you begin your day.

Here are some of the actions I take to get in touch with the essence of my soul. The first thing I do when I open my eyes in the morning is become aware of my feelings, thoughts, and surroundings. I begin my day by acknowledging how comfortable my pillows, sheets, and bed feels against my body. I allow myself to feel supported in my space through the physical elements and through God’s love.  Second, I acknowledge anything I am feeling.  I have discovered that joy is a choice I make every day. The moment I wake up I can choose to be the joy I am or not. If I feel something other than joy I say 10 clearing statements, ask God 10 questions, and say 10 statements of gratitude. Then I picture myself in front of my creator and am open to that experience. When I do this I feel very open, alive, and clear. Then I go into mediation. Meditation brings us into awareness of our essence. When I feel complete I knee beside my bed to show humility and gratitude to my creator.  I usually feel inspired to write in my journal after this.

How do you start your day? Does anything I am sharing with you resonate with you? If you took the time to be still and listen to what you need to start your morning, what would be your answers?  When I consciously choose to be aware of my soul first thing in the morning my day is divinely guided in miraculous ways. Do miracles happen every day? I believe they do, whether we are aware of them or not. Getting in touch with the essence of our soul, we discover we are a miracle and everything is a reflection of God’s joy through us.

Love and light,

Johnna Andrea
