Self-acceptance is what happens when you can see past your physical limitations, and allow the light of your spirit to shine through. For this to occur it’s important to accept that you are a spiritual being having a human experience.
Declare “I Am Accepting Myself” and reflect on this quote by Lao Tzu: “Because one believes in oneself, one doesn't try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn't need others' approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.”
Accept that your body is doing its best to carry your light into the world. When your light gets dimmed it’s time to fan the flame with your breath. Inspire means to breathe in, and be filled with spirit. Set a timer on your watch or phone to remind yourself to make this vital connection throughout the day.
Accept your mind as a magnificent tool for the creative process. Use it to create whatever you desire with...
Too much or too little energy creates an imbalance that can either cause anxiety and overwhelm or fatigue and depression. Think of recharging as a way to find the middle ground where you feel a sense of well-being.
Declare “I Am Recharging My Energy” as you reflect on this quote by bestselling author Jim Loehr: “Energy, not time, is the fundamental currency of high performance.”
Geese are known for their determination. They migrate hundreds of miles to get to a warmer climate and abundant resources where they can recharge. Use this kind of determination when it comes to recharging your own energy.
If you feel like you’re on a wild goose chase it’s time to stop chasing after what you want and allow what is yours to come to you. Being receptive brings balance to taking action, and you need both to live in harmony.
When you feel overwhelmed or anxious it means that you have trapped energy that needs to be released. Discharge the...
Life is a gift. What you choose to do with this gift is how you show your appreciation. Being on a path of love leads to creating a beautiful life where you naturally make a positive difference wherever you go.
Declare “I Am Making a Difference” as you reflect on these words from Nelson Mandela: “We can change the world and make it a better place. It is in our hands to make a difference.”
When you’re on a path of love, the future is full of possibilities. Imagine your future self as a strong tree in the distance, deeply rooted into the earth for support. The trunk is your core that is aligned with your higher purpose. Its limbs are your arms that help you reach out and make a difference in the world. Leaves grow abundantly as offerings. Birds land on your branches and represent your dreams coming into form, then taking flight. Allow yourself to be pulled forward by this vision.
You can make a difference in your life by loving...
Your aliveness is nurtured by radical self-care. An empty inner well doesn’t serve anyone because it eventually dries up from overuse. Your aliveness comes from finding your balance and living in harmony.
Declare “I am alive and well” as you reflect on this quote by Howard Thurman: “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
A well that is full has plenty to share and finds itself surrounded by beauty. It’s an inviting place to visit because it’s brimming with aliveness. Fill up your own well today by taking good care of yourself and notice how it naturally spills over and benefits others.
Wellness is an inside job. The image of filling up a well is the perfect metaphor for self-care. Imagine an empty well with nothing left to give as a way of remembering the value of restoring balance.
Self-care is more than a...
Choice comes from a place of love or fear. Wisdom is born out of love, and foolishness is a product of fear. Showing up for love is choosing your true self that already knows how to make wise choices.
Declare “I Am Making Wise Choices” and reflect on this quote by Oprah Winfrey: “I believe every single event in life that happens is an opportunity to choose love over fear."
An owl represents wisdom, intuition and change. When it shows up in your life either in a photo or nature, it’s reminding you to make wise choices by trusting your intuition.
Love chooses to tell the best story about your life by turning challenges into victories. Fear chooses to tell the worst story about everything that’s happened to you by playing the victim. You reclaim your power every time you tell your story from the perspective of love.
Fear has a way of disguising itself as love. Pleasing others might appear to be loving but it often comes at the...
Love animates the body with aliveness, and light informs the mind. When you get out of your own way and allow yourself to receive both of these abundant resources, you experience vitality. A balanced flow of life force moving through your body creates perfect health.
Declare “I Am Creating Perfect Health”and then visualize what that looks like until you get to the feeling.
The peacock represents the qualities of confidence, self-love, balance, and rejuvenation. It’s a reminder to have the confidence to love yourself by creating balance, and experience the rejuvenation you deserve to be healthy.
Health has many contributing factors that range from what you eat to the way you move, sleep, manage stress, and experience pleasure. Your body depends on your mind, so choose wisely. Think of your mind as the cause, and your body as the effect. Ask what your body needs that you haven’t given it, and then provide it.
Disease is an expression...

Life rises up to meet you at your elevation. When you see the world through the lens of love you will create beautiful experiences. From this higher perspective you will live a miraculous life that transcends fear.
Declare “I Am Creating Miracles” and reflect on these words from Voltaire: “All is a miracle. The stupendous order of nature, the revolution of a hundred millions of worlds around a million of stars, the activity of light, the life of all animals, all are grand and perpetual miracles.”
You create a miracle every time you make the shift from fear back to love. When you give love to what you already have, and what you desire, you are at the right frequency for creating miracles.
Your body is a miracle. Consider everything it takes to keep your organs and systems functioning and healing on a daily basis. Give your body the nutritional support it needs to be healthy. If your body needs healing you can use rose...
Happiness is a choice. It cannot be bought or sold, pursued or found because it’s a state of mind. Unhappiness can be transformed by loving yourself enough to break through the blocks that are preventing your well-being.
Declare “I Am Creating Happiness” and reflect on these words by Dale Carnegie: “Happiness doesn’t depend on any external conditions, it is governed by our mental attitude.”
The way you see your body can either strengthen or weaken your happiness. If you focus on what you don’t like about your body you will see more of that and feel sad. Focus on what you love and appreciate to dissolve the block of judgment.
Do you earn a living doing what you love or does it bring you down? Notice how you feel while you’re working to determine if it’s blocking or enhancing your happiness. You can remove the block to feeling good by either changing your career or having a different view of it.
Prosperity arrives on the wings of gratitude. The dragonfly symbolizes a shift from scarcity consciousness to prosperity consciousness. Appreciating what you already have brings more to appreciate.
Declare “I Am Creating Prosperity” and reflect on these words from Wayne Dyer: “When I chased after money, I never had enough. When I got my life on purpose and focused on giving of myself and everything that arrived into my life, then I was prosperous.”
Prosperity is a state of mind. It’s knowing that you are enough, will always have enough because you’re part of an abundant universe. Look for the abundance that is all around you and you’ll be prosperous.
If you happen to see a dragonfly acknowledge it as a sign of prosperity in your life. Express gratitude for the reminder.
Your prosperity benefits others. The more you have, the more you have to share. Use your wealth to enrich the lives of others.
When you shift your...
Just like you wake up in the morning to start a new day, you can wake up one day and start a new life. When the light of your soul illuminates a path to freedom that your ego decides to follow, you will experience heaven on earth.
Declare “I Am Changing My Life” and remember what Thoreau said: “To be awake is to be alive.”
Your ego has beliefs and out of those beliefs habits have been formed. Healthy habits are useful but unhealthy habits are not. Recognize any unhealthy habits you may have so you can have a starting point for change. The best way to change an unhealthy habit is to replace it with a healthy one that provides you with an emotional payoff. For example, if you have the habit of procrastination you could change that to anticipation by rewarding yourself upon completion.
What feeling do you associate with living the life of your dreams? Would you feel happy, excited, passionate, or grateful? Start today by bringing the energy of that...
