Afformations vs Affirmations.

Image
Have you ever told yourself “I am” statements?

Did your brain believe you?
Or did it say “YEA RIGHT!”

I have done it so much that my mind is at the well if you say so stage but things still aren’t changing. So I have been reading/listening to a book by Noah St. John called “Afformations”

What is an Afformation? It is a question.
Our brains are made to solve the questions. Did you know that?






I have read the book “AFFORMATIONS” by Noah St John. It was a such an eye opener it was.   We have been asking questions to our brains for a long time. But they are the wrong questions. Why am I such an idiot? Why am I so broke? Why doesn’t anyone love me? etc.....

What do these do in your brain? They make them true. You wanted to know the answer to them.

So lets flip them... Why am I so smart? Why does money flow to me? Why am I so loved?

Doesn’t that feel better?  


I have been making these little Afformations on the text on photo app. It has been a great way to share them and I enjoy how pretty t…

Please, Can We Be Nice and Love One Another......

Image
Friday was a day of rejoicing for some and a day of sadness for others.






I will not take a stand either way on this. I have a VERY STRONG opinion on judging others. God did not put us here to do His job. He put us here to have a relationship with Him and to love others.







We need to remember that words HURT. I hate the poem “Sticks and Stones” because words do hurt. Words can KILL. Let us not hurt others. I have been hurt with the sticks and stones but they are gone. I have carried the words with me forever. I try to turn them off but sometimes they raise there ugliness.

Please!! Think how you would feel if someone said it to you. You don’t have to agree but you don’t have to be so mean to get your OPINION across.







Love can reach so much further then hate. Love covers the pain, fear, etc.. Grace is what we need daily. Let us give grace to those out in the world.

Remember you will be judged as you judge others. I choose to LOVE and let God do what He does so well!

We Judge ourselves hard…

Are You in a Valley?

Image
Are you stuck?

Psalms 23:4 says “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod& your staff, they comfort me.”



Valleys are to be walked in, NOT lived in! Keep walking don’t up.Valleys are where we need light. Shadows are scary, but shadows can’t hurt you. Have you ever noticed how much bigger it is  then the original object.Valleys expose our greatest fears. Did you know once they are exposed they are not as scary because they are exposed to the light. So they aren’t as dark any more.Valleys are where I meet God. Sometimes when things are going well we don’t seek God but when things get hard we run to Him. He helps us out of the valley so we can walk among the clouds.  Sometimes we are put in the valley to help someone else out.

Did you know we weren’t created for the spirit of fear. There are over 365 promises in the Bible over fear. That is a new promise everyday.

To get unstuck try some of these steps.
The motivation for today.  …

Lemon, Oh How I love Lemon.......

Image
Lemon has always been scent that makes me happy. It is like sunshine on a cloudy gray day.
I live in Washington State, I know about cloudy gray days.

We are very lucky right now it is beautiful. A wonderful reason to have a frozen lemonade.

I use lemon oil many different ways. I love it in my smoothies or water but please make sure you are using a brand that is ok to take internally. One that show it has a supplement label.
Why is this important? Because not all essential oils are created equal. They don’t regulate what else they may put in that bottle. As long as what they say it is what it is, is really in it than they are not breaking any laws. Please be safe. It is like the “natural” items. As long as there is one ingredient that is natural they can label it that way....Really??

Mercy

Image
Mercy is something that is freely given, it is not earned.
Mercy is something that you show your neighbor when they did something that upset you but they weren’t trying to hurt you.
Mercy  is something you give to your teenager when they make a mistake that they already have beat themselves up for and you give them a hug and tell them you understand.
Mercy is that scratch your wife accidentally put in the car today and you looked the other way or dry her tears.
Mercy is the homeless person on the corner that you just gave your lunch to or the money to buy it.
 Mercy is what God gives us everyday as we walk on this earth. For the thoughts we think and the words we say and He says, “It is ok child, I forgive you”.
Mercy is a smile to someone who has had a hard day.

May you find mercy while you give it to others today.
God bless.

Being Me....

Image
You are you. Life is to short to worry about being someone else. Please enjoy being you.

I’m enjoying coming into my true self. God didn’t call us to be someone else. He designed us to be who we are. Do we have the right to tell God He doesn’t know what He is doing?








I have always been me because I don’t feel the need to be someone else. I trust that God made me like this and I do the things I do because that is my design.

I have a servants heart and I enjoy serving others but don’t use or abuse me. I do bite if you push or have an I owe you attitude.








God gave me this nurturing heart and I will use it to help you. I have the ability to feel your pain and have empathy for what you are going through.

You are meant to live your outrages life, so go be YOU!
Enjoy your life and have some crazy fun.
Be silly who cares what others think.

Essential Oils in Your Garden.

Image
Did you know you can use essential oils in your garden?

Slugs can destroy your young plants quicker than the slime they leave in their wake. So what oils can you spray around to help keep them out of the garden? Try some White Fir or Cedarwood. Just put a few drops in a spray bottle and spray the area.
Ants If they kept their little bodies outside I really wouldn’t have a problem with them but every year they think they should come check out whats in the big house. I have a friend who used peppermint worked beautifully. I just taught a class and one of the lovely ladies said she used Oregano, She said hasn’t seen anything since. Wow.   Another tip I have heard is just put your empty bottles out there. They swear by it. So, if you don’t know what to do with your empty bottles save them for gardening season. These oils can be found to be helpful. TerrashieldPeppermintCinnamonWhite FirThymeGeraniumCedarwoodLemongrassArborvitae
