Find the gift in the lesson.....
Hi Everyone!! Happy Wednesday February 19th!
What a wonderful weekend celebrating LOVE. Everything was wonderful. We have always had FAMILY valentine's day and the three of us have always celebrated together. This year was to be no different. However my son, my only child, who turned twenty two, decided that he wanted to do what he wanted to do and created an upset in our home.
Naturally, my husband and I were very upset and things escalated to where my son went and spent the night outside of the home. He needed to have an experience and we needed space. Of course I cried for a whole day and then when I regained my composure, I created a plan of action.
Instead of sitting in the pain and sadness of his choices and things he has been doing, we decided to regain our power and I created a list of things to do. A plan of action.
Yesterday I made appointments and made contacts to get him the help he needs. You see my son has needs that my husband and I help him with. He is not able to just do what he wants when he wants. He needs a lot of support.
I reached out to my family, friends and tribe to help me. People offered all kinds of love, prayers and healing energy. We received it with open arms.
Today my son got a part time job and we are celebrating life. One day at a time. I have learned presence and being in the moment. Never has it been more important that right now. I am learning not to make things a catastrophe and instead to harness my God given power to create change. To make choices and to take chances. So the lesson here is that there are going to be days where it feels like the end of the world. It really isn't. I am learning to connect to my breath and stop what I am doing to gain clarity. I am learning to ASK for help and be open to receive it.
I was so hurt and so was my husband. However we acknowledged our pain, we stood together, we resolved to make changes and we released the pain to God. We trusted in a solution and that even if we didn't see the solution right away, that my son's spirit chose this life and that he would be supported as well as us.
We were open to miracles, a peaceful resolution and so much healing. I said so many prayers and I surrendered to God and my angels. I cleaned and cleared the house and smudged his room. Everything worked for our highest greatest good and within days we are calm once again. God is so good.
Today's affirmation is this:
I see the gifts within this situation. I am strong enough to get through life's lessons and I am willing to see the gifts in the lessons being presented. I know that God is in control and I rely on Him for His blessings and Grace. And so it is.
If I can be of service with an angel card reading, prayers, house blessing or goddess reading/healing session, please let me know.

Affirmations for the body
via the Queen of Affirmations- Louise Hay
Summer has begun and with it some people worry too much about how they are going to look in that bathing suit. Whether you are truly overweight or just stressing about how you look, it’s time to stop the self-criticism.
It’s important to realize that all of our actions are designed to meet a need. Oftentimes, being overweight is caused by insecurity, self-rejection, and fear of our own feelings, while overeating is usually an attempt to love and nurture ourself with food. The original problem may very well stem from childhood beliefs and choices. Once seen and addressed, these outdated beliefs can be released for new ones that serve us now as complete and perfect adults. Filling our minds with pleasant thoughts is the quickest road to health.
Start today by saying these affirmations and posting them somewhere in your home:
I love my body exactly as it is.
I am my perfect weight.
I am my perfect size.
I eat only when I am truly hungry.
I am drawn only to foods that truly nourish my body.
