"EVERYONE without exception is very, very special with extraordinary qualities and extraordinary powers. You just may not know it yet. The secret is to be, love and cherish yourself; it is to be your true essence. You are love and light, infinite wisdom and unlimited possibilities. Whatever you ask, you shall receive. You can have, be and do anything you want. You just need to choose what makes you happy in your heart. It is very simple. Remember, you are loved beyond measure for who you are and you are beautiful."

May is the month of new beginnings and blooming. The trees will soon be lush with beautiful green leaves. Flowers of all colors, shapes, aromas and beauty are starting to bud. We are all like flowers… blooming into beautiful beings. Like flowers need rain and nurturing to bloom, remember to nurture yourself. What did you do today to nurture yourself and what will you do tomorrow? Take time for yourself – meditate ~ laugh ~ play ~ spend time with positive friends ~ learn new things, enjoy the outdoors and nature, nurture your body with healthy foods ~ whatever you do, do it with love and gratitude and you will certainly attract more of these good vibrations J

See how nature – trees, flowers, grass – grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence…we need silence to be able to touch souls. – Mother Teresa
"When we look into the heart of a flower, we see clouds, sunshine, minerals, time, the earth, and everything else in the cosmos in it. Without clouds, there could be no rain, and there would be no flower. Without time, the flower could not bloom. In fact, the flower is made entirely of non-flower elements; it has not independent, individual existence.... One thing is made up of all other things. One thing contains the whole cosmos.... A piece of bread contains sunshine.... Without a cloud, the wheat cannot grow. So when you eat the piece of bread, you eat the cloud, you eat the sunshine, you eat the minerals, time, space, everything."
Thich Nhat Hahn
A Newborn's Conversation with God
A baby asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow,
but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"
God said, "Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you."
The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in heaven I don't have
to do anything but sing and smile to be happy."
God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you.
And you will feel your angel's love and be very happy."
Again the small child asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand
when people talk to me if I don't know the language?"
God said, "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words
you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will
teach you how to speak."
"And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"
God said, "Your angel will place your hands together and will teach
you how to pray."
"Who will protect me?"
God said, "Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life."
"But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore."
God said, "Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach
you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you."
At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth
could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, "God, if I am to leave
now, please tell me my angel's name."
God said, You will simply call her, "Mom."
In loving memory of my beloved “Mom” who left this earth to fly with the angels on January 11th, 2011. You are forever in my heart.
Also, a very special acknowledgement to my grandmother, Lena Mosuk (Nanny). Although you have been gone for 22 years, there is not a day that goes by that I do not think of you or hear your words of wisdom and inspiration. Having you in my life has truly inspired me to live with courage, truth and laughter !!! I love you and will never forget you.
The fragrance always remains on the hand that gives the rose. – Gandhi
There is a longing deep inside to emerge as an improved version of yourself, like a butterfly from the cocoon, all shiny, new and free. This is a longing which you can fulfill. It is within your power to emerge from this cocoon of old habits, self-defeating actions, and patterns which seem to have ensnarled and encased you. It is well within your power. You have the power to be what you dream of being, because you are that person already. You are.
First, hold on to the butterfly image and begin to connect deeply to it, to the butterfly that is you. And now, deep within your center, within the very core of yourself, connect with this version of yourself, connect emotionally, deeply. Know this person as yourself. Know that you are already this person. Of course you are. It is you. And the cocoon will drop away as you begin to connect more and more closely with the butterfly.
What does she feel like? How does she act? How would she respond in a given situation? Begin to honor yourself enough to be this butterfly version of yourself. Clear away your fear and doubt and simply dress, eat, exercise, speak, think, and choose as she does.
For you are her. You are this butterfly. This longing is a longing to come home to yourself, to release the old ways of being which no longer serve, to free yourself from the fear and doubt, to flutter your wings in the sunshine of a vibrant life and take flight.
Here is a little Prayer for Today:
Today, I am the very best version of myself.
Today, I emerge from the cocoon fresh and clean and new. I am a butterfly of great beauty. I know my beauty and own it completely.
I am free and able to fly. I am shiny and new and able to do all of the things I have always dreamt of doing.
I choose to be this very best version of myself. I choose to act and speak in this way. I make all of my decisions and choices from the center of this butterfly version of myself, knowing that I am this beautiful, this vibrant, this much a part of the world.
I love myself completely and embrace all that I am. I fly from flower to flower and drink in the nectar of life. I am beauty, joy and a deep peace. I am all that I wish to be, right now. I am.
There is truth in everything. There is truth in every person. There is truth in every situation. There is truth in every lesson. Find your truth. Know your truth. Be your truth,
Spring is a time to realize the truth of the earth. It is ever changing yet remains the same, this is a truth.
What you experienced as the earth of the winter now gives way to the earth of the spring. Spitting forth that which was always there but unseen. Flowers arise from their slumber and grasses grow green with light.
Know that in every inch of barren, frozen soil in your life there are seeds of truth and flowers of knowing. With each lesson there is a stalk growing out of a seed, reaching ever more for the light, growing closer to that which it knows will help it bloom fully. A light that sheds truth on the soul of every one and every thing.
The Light of Love. The Light of Truth. The Light of You.
When you vibrate joy, gratitude, love, and compassion, the energy of the universe and angels can stream with you. It is your birthright to awaken. This is the lifetime to honor your total magnificent, multidimensional Self.
You are invited to make a practice of allowing yourself to still your activity and be quiet for a few minutes several times a day. As you practice and use this simple tool, it will become easier and quicker to reach your state of balance. This allows your body-mind-emotions-spirit to re-align . You are encouraged to listen to the guidance within... to make time for stillness and be receptive to what is being offered.
PASSIONATE ACTION BRINGS FULFILLMENT, JOY AND NEW POSSIBILITIES
You are already perfect... Everyday will reveal more of your perfection into form. All you need to do is to:
Keep watching... expecting... and believing!
Today's Positive Thought
Accepting yourself is the greatest gift you can give to yourself and to the world.
Today's Positive Affirmation
I accept myself, knowing that I am a work in progress. I recognize my potential as I love and honor my shortcomings.
Today's Positive Visualization
In my heart I experience the love that God has for me. I recognize I AM a perfect expression of God's plan. I imagine myself embracing all parts of me with true acceptance. I enjoy the thoughts of my future self as I gently accept who I am today. I forgive myself for the times I failed to live up to my potential. I congratulate myself on the lessons I have learned and the things I have accomplished. I encourage myself to never give up my dreams. I imagine myself going through my day experiencing total and complete acceptance of my life and myself as it is today. I combine these images with the feelings of joy and let them
go, knowing that they will create the good things I am visualizing and thinking.
"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning
all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills
countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence
moves too... Whatever you can do.., begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
Begin it now".
