Serenity Inside Job Magical Blessings

Serenity is an Inside Job Part 3

Serenity is a way for you to make courageous and wise decisions that will change your life. This was my word for 2017. I have not ever chosen a word to be my word of the year. So, I was not sure how this would show up in my life.

Wise Courage 

Serenity Inside Job Change Chance Transition Transformation Magical Blessings Courage WisdomSo many changes showed up for me. There have been days where my head spins and I wonder where I get off the out of control roller coaster, and then suddenly things calm down. The best attribute for my personal growth was the disallowance of being a peace keeper. Early on in my life, I learned to be given love was through peaceful negations with family members. In truth, this is not the greatest affect for anyone. Therefore, being courageous to walk away from things that did not serve me was one of the bravest and wisest experiences for serenity.

You, too, be courageous to walk way from anything that no longer severs you. If this sounds wonky, think of this as a mission and if the mission went away or feels like it is over; move on. You will be glad that you did.

Clarifying Self-Confidence 

Intuitive and serenity go hand and hand for you. I found a much deeper intuitive connection that lead me to more  self- confidence. We are all here to grow and learn. Even the bravest and most fearless have things that can stop them in their tracks. You need to keep moving, learning and growing. Let go of complacency. Move onward and discover that through clarity your self-confidence arises in a whole new way.

This may require change. It may be an big adjustment. Step back and be gentle with yourself during a time of transition. There is no race. You will not win nor lose; it is all about the wonderful discoveries along the way. Let go of expectations and let yourself grow, learn and courageously shift.

Bringing it to my Soul

Serenity brought me much closer to my soul. Each step and shift adjust my sails and brought me to other destinations unknown. A destination does not have to be a location. This can also be a moment in time. A way for your to traverse the new by letting go of the old.

Let it Go, Let it Flow meditations and resurgence of painting @ my Heart Loft brought so much serene moments  for me. Yes, this brought forth much change; in fact I was in transition all of 2017. Yet, this also brought for one of my greatest dreams to build my dream home. 2018 will bring forth this dream and it all began with calm, courageous change.

I can do it! 

You can do it! 

Let’s do this together!

How to Enjoy a Simply Mind-Blowing Way to Slow Down

How do you begin your day?  Are you checking your calendar right away and through out the day.  Or does your phone chime and remind you that you are mind-blowingly busy? When is the last time that you simply enjoyed a moment to slow down?

Once upon a time, I was that person whose calendar was color coded for each family member.  So, much so that I may have had to schedule moments to take a breath.  I do not know how many times, I would say, Omgosh, I forgot to eat or I need to get this email out; as I typed and shoved food in my face.

Slow down or Pay the Piper

Basically, my body gave me a heads up that I was way too busy.  There would be times where I would look at my calendar and my ego would relish in the fact that I could do more in a day than most in a week.

Who was I kidding?  Me, myself and I.  Did I heed the cancer warning?  For a bit, and then was once again off to internal races.  When I reflect back, I am not even sure who I was in competition with; it may have even been myself.

Mind-Blowing Concept

After years of a traumatic crisis that severed my family; I was left lost, bone tired and the words, I did not wish to hear, let alone connect with floated into my existence.  The denial was immense: adrenal fatigue.


Simply Slow Down 

I had to pay the piper and the piper was not requiting the nonsense.  There were days when getting out of bed was a major accomplishment.  I began to work from home, as a single lady, a lack of work was not an option.  I would piter to my computer, logon and make it through the day.  Then, it was time for a long nap.

The long strideful hikes became slow meandering strolls.  It made me smile when a mature lady and her walker zipped right passed me as if I was standing still.  It was in these moments, that I began to relish, enjoy and savior the slowness that I had succumbed to.

The meta-cognition of a pattern literally ripped from my ego and my soul stepping in to guide me in a new way.

Simple Mind-Blowing Ways to Slow Down

  1. Do Less- You are not in competition with anyone including yourself.  There is plenty of time; even if that time is another day.
  2. Be present- Listen to one to listen; not to answer.  That includes yourself.  Be mindful of what you are doing at each moment; not worrying about the past or the future.
  3. Focus one at a time.  No multi-tasking.  I was the guru of serial multi-tasking.  Focus on one moment, thing, person at a time.
  4. Disconnect- Enjoy a hot bath, walk in nature.  Turn off electronics, phone and sit and enjoy a cup of tea, glass of wine and simple do nothing.
  5. Eat slower; Chew each bite approximately 25 bites.  Savor the nourishment that you are providing your body.
  6. Breathe- Meditate, relax, rest and breath.  When you are racing to the next item on the checklist are you truly breathing.  Slow down, sit and take 3 large inhales and exhales several times a day.  Your emotional, spiritual bodies will love this and this also helps connect these to the mental and physical bodies; all breathing in harmony equals harmonious balance.

Connecting Your Soul Snowflake to You

In last week’s blog How to Make a Soul Snowflake & What Does My Soul Snowflake Mean you were shown the steps with photos and each step.  Connecting with your soul is very important.  It is the effect of how to do this.

Connecting Your Soul Snowflake to You

Connecting Your Soul Snowflake to You

Thanks Clipart Kid

Oftentimes, the connection is something as simple as creating a snowflake.  Divine spirit simply flows in a graceful manner.  Ego causes havoc, stress and a mess.

Snow is pure, tranquil and serene.  The divine essence is connecting with your soul in this manner.  Your soul is pure and harmonious which expounds the deep joy that we feel.  Let’s reflect on the beauty of a quiet, snow setting.  There is a calm beauty to it.

Your soul has this calm beauty.  Deep down you, too are this calm beauty.

Taking Time to Connect With Your Soul

How to make a soul snowflakeIf, you have not already created your own snowflake please do so.

Next, light a candle and sit with your snowflake.

What does it say to you?


Now, use one of the two writing prompts or use both:

  • Every snowflake is unique, I am unique because…
  • The first snowfall…

If you find writing tasking, set a timer for 5 minutes and write, keep the pen moving and allow this to flow to you. There are no worries, and no teacher looking for perfect grammar.  I am teacher of writing, and when it flows from your heart; there is no need to be “perfect.” Your writing in this moment is wonderful for you!
