As this day comes to an end, I do believe:
1. That I am exactly where I need to be right now.
2. That God and the universe are working with me.
3. People are basically good (don’t believe everything we see and read in the media).
Much love and peace to you friends.
I am glad you are here.
Rest well. Be well.
Ideally, we have sufficiently exercised during the day,
not had too much caffeine or eaten too close to bedtime,
and not have subjected ourselves to violent or overly stimulating movies, news broadcasts, or video games after 6:00 pm…
When it is bedtime we want to think of things that calm us.
It helps to take a hot bath, then slip on something very comfortable.
I love my sleepwear! I have satiny pjs and night gowns, flannel pjs for the cooler nights, and my beloved plush green fleece bathrobe…
When the lights go out, I have several things that I like to think of (depending on my mood).
In no particular order, I like to focus on:
1. The color blue. It is my favorite color and it is very soothing…blue ocean waves, blue flowers, blue sky….
2. My husband John and how much I love him
3. God. When I focus on God I feel safe, loved, and very secure.
4. Focus on my breath and the comfort of my bed, blankets, pillow, and sweet husband next to me.
5. A favorite memory
7. The colors of the rainbow
8. A favorite view from nature (from on top of a a mountain, ocean, in the forest..)
9. This sounds silly but sometimes I drift off to sleep very quickly if I think of something technical such as how to change something on a website.
10. My many blessings
11. A trip or vacation that I am looking forward to.
I like to drift off to sleep with a smile on my face and in my heart knowing that I am loved, safe, and have a great life!
Moonlight is sculpture. ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne
Last night was Hollywood’s night for the stars. Tonight is the night for the moon.
This beautiful evening I offer you a meditation for this full moon night.
In a quiet space, get comfortable. If you can do this meditation outside or in the house with a view of the moon, I highly recommend it.
If you have a good view of the moon, have all other lights out. Bask in the moonlight.
A meditation and moonlight bath begins with you:
Breathing fully in and out.
Again, breathe fully in and then out slowly.
Let the air fill your belly.
Gently let it out.
Sit upright and imagine the top of your head reaching the moon high up in the sky.
You are going to (for a spell), tune into that powerful energy that our full moon has on this beautiful night.
After breathing in and out fully at least five times, sit and be silent.
Just sit. And breathe. Sit as upright as you can.
The gentle warm light of the moon is reaching you and you are are connecting with it.
In your mind, dance with the moonlight a bit.
Think of all the love that went into making you, and
all the love that you emit everyday.
You are pure love.
The moon’s light is softly touching every part of you.
The healing energy knows where you are tired, and where you are hurt.
If there is a particular part of your body that aches, focus in your mind the moon light to that place.
If your are sad or angry, invite the light to come into your heart.
Soft warm glowing love is now healing every part of you that needs healing.
If you wish, you may now open your eyes and click on this link for some beautiful full moon mediation music as you continue to breathe and bask in the gentle loving light of the moon…
Or you may choose to remain silent.
As you bask in this moonlight bath,
consider the tremendous blessing that you are to the world.
The moon recognizes it, and it is shining it’s light on YOU.
You are whole,
as whole as the moon is full tonight…
Have a blessed night!
As day turns to night,
I am quite confident that I will sleep well…
for I am content with how the day went,
I am ready to let it go…
and I Am centered NOW.
I invite all of you to join me!
I Am happy,
I Am peace.
How do I know it?
I am at ease.
My spirit is light,
My heart is pure.
No worries in sight…
No burdens to bear.
Thank you, God.
Thank you, day.
I welcome the night, now, in every way.
Evening, I am ready for you.
Oh, tranquil time of day. ..
In many ways,
It is you I most savor-
because with you I can kick back
take me away!
Sweet are the moments such as:
a first kiss, and
a tender kiss from your spouse of twenty years….
Stolen silent minutes at the end of the day,
and the happy sounds of family members catching up with each other at the dinner table…
Oh, how can moments be any sweeter than when:
One receives an unexpected wink, smile, or hug from another, and
when you receive an unexpected phone call, text, Facebook message, or letter from somebody you love…
How about a beautiful flower
or a particularly delightful bite of Swiss milk chocolate?
Yes, these are sweet.
Sweet moments. Sweet things. Sweet people. Sweet YOU!
As this day ends, I am reminded of all that I have to be thankful for.
I appreciate the chance to make a difference in other people’s lives.
Without a doubt I feel affirmed that peace, acceptance, and love all surrounded with a huge dose of gratitude is where it’s at.
Whatever you are doing right now,
whoever you are with,
whatever you may be feeling…
I wish you a love-filled and peaceful evening.
The day is nearly over and a mellow evening awaits…
It’s time for ambitions and tasks to be set down for a while
so that my brain can take a rest.
I was thankful for the day but now I’m so ready for the night.
I don’t want to think, or
or worry about a thing.
For I am tired tonight…
I gave today what I had to give.
It’s all pretty well spent now,
and now I just want to live
for this moment which
includes a glass of wine,
a lasagna in the oven,
and giggling teenagers in the next room…
I started this day with the affirmation:
I Am limitless
Tonight, before I go to bed, I still feel this way.
We all are limitless (if we believe it).
No matter our past,
our present circumstances,
or the words of people who tend to discourage…
We are limitless.
Whenever we focus on something we create something new.
