Powerful Practices with Your Cuppa Coffee

Dear readers,

Greetings from Indiana! In this post I will happily share some suggestions for practices you can do to supercharge your cuppa coffee (or tea) and thus infuse yourself with positivity and high vibes! ~

~ Before taking that first sip, offer your cuppa to Something Greater than yourself… And then say some prayers or intentions… For example, I offer my cuppa to Hanuman, who is an aspect of Divinity in Hinduism. He represents pure devotion, love, courage, strength, and positive energies. So after offering the coffee, I say an affirmation like, “I am drinking positive energies and thinking positive thoughts.” ~ Try this for yourself, in your own way, and experience the power of your mind!

~ As you take those first few sips (which in my experience are the very best sips in the cup), practice the art of savoring… For just a moment or two, focus all of your mental energies on tasting and experiencing those sips. Imagine you are becoming one with the coffee. ~ You may find that those few moments become your favorite part of the whole day!

~ After savoring the first sips, take a moment to cultivate Gratitude by appreciating everything that has gone into the manifestation of your cuppa coffee. As the coffee beans grew on the trees, there were many elements that sustained and surrounded them such as sunshine, earth, rain, wind, flowers, leaves, trees, birdsong, and starlight… And then the beans were harvested by the work of human hands… And remember to also be grateful for the powerful high vibration energies inherent in those magical beans! ~ This moment of appreciation will send gratitude vibrations out to all the realms, which will come back to you as many beautiful gifts. Watch for their arrival in your life!

If you have been following my blog for a while, then you know that I am a lover of black coffee! Do you like it black also? If not, if you must add something white to your cuppa, please consider a coconut milk creamer… The cows will bless you with their gratitude vibrations! And Holy Coconut Shells, the Organic Coconut Milk Creamer by So Delicious is truly so delicious! Check it out here: Simply 5 Ingredients.

Dear reader, I hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed writing it for you… 🙂

With positivity and high vibes,

Autumn Affirmations

Yesterday began with the usual aches and pains of Fibromyalgia, but after lunch the bright blue sky and cool breezes inspired me to push through fatigue and venture out for a walk in the hood…

Do you ever make yourself do something and then afterwards you feel so glad and so grateful that you did it?

Well that is what happened with yesterday’s walk. The sunshine felt so amazing, and I felt like my whole being opened up to the healing energies available in the green trees all around me…

And then, quite spontaneously, I celebrated the change of seasons by creating the following affirmations for Autumn… Perhaps these will inspire you to make your own affirmations for Autumn! (Or Spring if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere!) ~

~ I choose to let go of worries.

~ I choose to be happy (even when feeling tired and sick).

~ I choose to generate the energy of Love and to send that energy of Love out into the Universe!

StarFire Teja’s StarFire Friday Blessing: May You Harness the Strength of Your Happy Orange Place Inside

 

May you connect with the strength of your roots.

May you feel at home in the ground of your being.

May your weekend be blessed with reminders of your inner resources.

May you harness the strength of your Happy Orange place inside.

 

Dear readers, as I shared in my June 1st post, “Shifting Focus and Starting Fresh,” I am only blogging occasionally this month of June, so that I can focus primarily on writing the next book… Reaching for Orange: Practices, Visualizations, & Blessings to Help You Happy Up Your Life.

This week I have very much enjoyed working on this next book, and one evening during my sitting meditation practice, I heard: “This book, Reaching for Orange, is going to be life-changing and important for many people.” Well, we shall see if that will be true! In any case, I can hardly wait to share this next book with you! In Reaching for Orange you will learn many ways to harness the strength of your Happy Orange place inside.

As I’m writing Reaching for Orange, in my daily life I am doing many of the practices suggested in the book, so what you will read in its pages is infused with my practical understanding of the information.

My current affirmation comes from a recent blog post, “Guided Imagery for Shifting Negative Thoughts”… I have been saying this daily: “I am on the Sunshine Train… God is driving, and all I have to do is relax in my happy seat, and do some writing, and trust that all is heading in the right direction!”

What are you enjoying this week?
What inner strengths are you celebrating?
What affirmations are you saying?

Meditation to Get Beyond Irritation

Do you ever find yourself in a state of complete and utter irritation with everything?

The next time you notice yourself feeling irritated, try this simple meditation practice… Sit in a quiet place and close your eyes. Bring your attention to your breathing. You don’t need to try to make your breathing be a certain way. Simply witness the in-breath and witness the out-breath.

Next add a mantra or affirmation. For example, I think “Om Namah Shivaya” with the in-breath and again with the out-breath. You might want to think “I am Peace” with the in-breath, and “I am Love” with the out-breath… Or you could think “I am Love” with the in-breath and “I am Light” with the out-breath…

Sit and think your mantra or affirmation with the breath until you feel the irritations dissolving. It may take twenty minutes (or longer) to achieve a feeling of peace.

Let me know how it goes!

 

May All Beings Know Deep Peace.
