Looking forward to seeing you and sharing some outdoor Reiki by the sea!

Much love,

Feb 2011 Newsletter

Just in time for Valentine's Day, I'm sending out my newsletter to you with much love and joy!
I'm truly inspired this month as I have witnessed the amazing results of my repetitive use of positive affirmations and visualizations. I have believed in using affirmations for so long but haven't put them to full use in a while. I suppose the New Year coming and January being "resolution" month propelled me to make some changes to my lifestyle and my business. I had ideas and plans, but it all came to fruition once I truly concentrated my attention to my goals and really "felt" what the results would be like... before I knew it, I was not only "feeling" the results out in visualization, I was actually living them. Everything came true. I have a good list of affirmations in place, which I review regularly (and tweak as I go). I spend a few minutes everyday visualizing how I would like my day to go, while feeling an enormous sense of gratitude for it. This not only works in attaining goals - it really changes your mood. I have yet to experience a bad day or conflict after doing a morning meditation/visualization.
My favourite affirmation: ALL MY RELATIONSHIPS ARE HARMONIOUS. (and I'm sooooo grateful for this!)


Sending you love, light and ear to ear smiles :) Below are my updates and some information that may be of interest to you.
