Remember when you say thank you to feel it in your heart. When you have a heartfelt response to receiving you create a healthy mindset that takes nothing and no one for granted. This is how you uplift your soul in a big way.

Say thank you to your body for all of the functions it performs for you each and every day without you even having to think about it. Thank your body for being the vehicle for your soul to take this incredible journey through life. Self-care is is a wonderful form of appreciation.
Say thank you when you turn on the faucet and clean water comes pouring out to meet your needs. Say thank you when you flip a switch and the lights come on in your home.

Your left eye is the window to your soul. Your right eye is the window to your ego. When your ego is aligned with your soul all the vivid colors of your authentic self will emerge, and you will become your own soulmate.
“Before you find your soul mate, you must first discover your soul.” ~ Charles F. Glassman
To attract a loving soulmate, become one to yourself first. Listening to your soul and making its desires your top priority is essential to a healthy relationship with yourself. Your ego may protest this shift in consciousness but your soul will thrive on the love and attention.
Your soul knows that you are enough but your ego may have the opposite belief. Choose to have the higher perspective of your soul and you will be the kind of mate that naturally uplifts and inspires from a place of wholeness.
A soulmate will support you in fulfilling your life's purpose. It's important that you know what that is and have faith in your calling. You...
We live in the feeling of our thoughts, and our feelings drive our actions. Self-love is a combination of empowering self-talk and daily self-care. Loving yourself is the way to experience wholeness and inner peace.

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...
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.
