Word of The Day: Breakthrough

breakthrough-imgWord of The Day:  Breakthrough

Definition – a sudden, dramatic, and important discovery or development; an instance of achieving success in a particular sphere or activity.

When this word was given to me this morning I was immediately filled with a sense of relief.  This is what it feels like to break through walls of your own making.  How do you bust down those walls?  By changing your perception of a belief that no longer serves you.

My example today is marketing for my business.  I use to hate to do it.  It felt like such drudgery in the past.  I would tell myself that nothing that I am doing works, no one is paying attention anyway, and on and on. . .

While recovering from Lyme Disease marketing (posting on Facebook, writing my blog, updating my website, etc.) is the only thing I have had the energy for.  Now that I am feeling better I realize that I am actually having fun doing all those things that I dreaded in the past.  My perception of the task changed and what was once a chore is now something I am excited to do every day.

Where are you seeing breakthroughs in your life today?

Word of The Day: Perception

diamond-500872_640-e1501776596980Word of The Day:  Perception

Definition – a way of regarding, understanding, or interpreting something

The vision I was given today by Guidance was a many-faceted jewel.  Each facet represents a perception of ourselves that we hold dear.  Maybe that perception is “I’m not good enough?”  If we look at ourselves through only one facet of the jewel we are unable to see ourselves clearly.  If we are only looking through one facet we may not even realize we are a jewel at all.   Even if we turn the jewel around and look at it from another angle our perception of ourself is still askew.  It is only when we step back and can see the whole jewel can we see the truth of who we are.  We are magnificent diamonds.  Maybe that diamond is rough cut but it doesn’t change the fact that it is still a beautiful jewel.

Word of The Day: Inhabit

dancerposeWord of The Day:  Inhabit

Definition – (of a person, animal, or group) live in or occupy (a place or environment).

As I was practicing my yoga this morning I was thinking about how much I admired people who fully inhabited their body.  I am not one of those people.  As an empath, I feel everything.  I am very sensitive to pain, mine, and other peoples.  As such, I am not very present in my body.

When I looked up the definition of the word today I was struck by the fact that inhabit is a verb, an action word.  To inhabit one’s body is an active state of being.  I asked Guidance how do I learn to inhabit my body.  I was told to breathe long and deep.  You have to be fully in your body to breathe long and deep.  You just can’t do it otherwise.  That is my practice for today.  Breathe.  Inhale and exhale.  Long and slow.

Word of The Day: Visualization

22225416c3667702fbbbcd55a63e0dfaWord of The Day:  Visualization

Definition – the formation of a mental image of something.  To see an image in your mind to affect change in the material world.

I always knew words held power but not until I started my Word of The Day writing practice did I realize just how much words meant to me.

If you have been reading these posts you know I have been healing from Lyme’s Disease.  One of the powerful tools I have been practicing in this process is visualization.  I have been visualizing the Lyme bacteria in my body as exploding and changing into light.  Sometimes I have been visualizing fire burning them up.  Visualization along with other natural remedies have been working.  I am feeling better every day.  This has been a long journey back to wellness and I have had many ups and downs.  When I am down its hard not to follow my mind into depression.  When I am up the whole world looks bright again.  The mind can either be our friend or our foe.  Which will you choose today?

Word of The Day: Me

Word of The Day: Me

Definition – how we identify ourselves

This is another one of those words that I rejected writing about immediately.  This can’t really be the word They want me to write about?  I shouldn’t put this word out there.  How self-absorbed is that?

The more I meditated on the word the more I realized the perfection of it.  I have been “shoulding” myself a lot lately.  Healing from Lyme’s Disease is an arduous process.   And the energy I do have has to be parceled out carefully.  The time I spend resting has not been very restful because of what I think I “should” be doing instead.

One of the “ahas” I’ve had about the metaphysical meaning of having Lyme’s Disease is this:  Lyme Disease is showing me all the areas in my life I feel powerless.   I feel powerless financially because I don’t have the energy to work.  I feel powerless romantically because I’ve never been able to stay in a relationship for very long.  I feel powerless physically because I am too weak to do much of anything.  And the list goes on. . .

This disease is offering me an opportunity to reclaim my power by deciding to shift my self-talk, my thinking, and my perceptions.  This disease is giving me an opportunity to reclaim my power and to reclaim Me.

Word of The Day: Possibilities

Young plantWord of The Day:  Possibilities

Definition – the state or fact of being likely or possible; likelihood; co-creation

What a magical word!  As soon as I heard it I got a twinkle in my eye and a spring in my step.  I feel like Tigger from the Pooh story bouncing on my tail because life is full of promise.

Once I get the word of the day I look for the definition either online or within.  Once the definition is clear I go to Google and search for an image to match the vibration of the meaning of the word.  Once the image is found I begin to write and don’t always realize how the image fits the definition until I’m deep into it.

This image says to me that all possibilities are a co-creation with God.  There is more to possibilities than just planting the seeds and wishing upon a star.  I have to water this life through my thoughts and my actions before I can harvest my possibilities.

Word of The Day: Stillness

stillness-of-water-terry-cosgraveWord of The Day:  Stillness

Definition – silence; quiet; the absence of motion

This word came to me today while lying in bed.  I am being treated for Lyme Disease and the little critters dying off is hard on the body.  It leaves me exhausted and lethargic and often times in pain.  It is hard to be self-employed and be sick.  There are no paid days off.  So, when I can’t work, I tend to get caught up in anxiety about not being able to work.

I knew I had to find stillness in my mind if I were going to shift out of fear so I began to breathe.  The deeper I breathed the more quiet I became.  A great stillness came over me and I fell back asleep.  I could’t have gotten there without the breath.  When I awoke the fear had dissipated.

Word of The Day: Integration

o-INFINITY-facebookWord of The Day:  Integration

Definition – combine (one thing) with another so that they become a whole.

When I tuned into this word I got an image of an infinity symbol.  We often see ourselves as damaged goods and not as infinite beings.  Our wounds do not make us less than.  If we can integrate our wounds instead of hiding in shame because of them we can begin to see ourselves as whole.

I have been feeling shame because I still grieve the loss of my last relationship.   The shame has me feeling less than whole.  My Guides are telling me that love is never wrong.  They have been inviting me to see myself as whole instead of full of holes.  My intention today is to see wholeness in my sadness.  When I can integrate all parts of me I become whole.  I am Infinite.

Word of The Day: Destiny

600_461306703Word of The Day:  Destiny

Definition- The Divine Plan; the overlaying theme of what we have come to learn or master.

Today’s word comes from an online question from a client.

My Guides gave me this as an explanation for the question “What is my Destiny?”

Your Destiny is a loose blueprint of what you have come to master.  We say loose because you have free will in all choices you make.  Your astrology and your numerology help give structure to this Plan.  This plan wasn’t made for you it was made with you.  You and your Divine Planners made the blueprint for this lifetime you are living now.

My overlying theme or destiny is Trust.  In many of my relationships over my lifetime trust was either violated or abused.  What I have come to learn is that those relationships were a reflection of me not trusting my Higher Power and me not trusting me.  If I can not trust myself I am truly powerless.  I am far from mastering this theme.  I plan on living a good long life though . . . I have time.  😉

Word of The Day: Love

Word of The Day:  Love

Definition – a strong affection, devotion or attachment

I was delighted when this word of the day came to me.  Who doesn’t love Love?

Yet, the more I opened myself to Spirit’s meaning behind this word the more I realized today’s definition was about loving oneself.  It is easy to have an affection for a child or a friend but when I turned that love around onto myself it was no longer easy.   I encourage you to ask yourself these questions?  Do I have a strong affection for myself?  Am I devoted to me?  If the answer is yes, what does that look like?  If the answer is not so much what can you do to change that around?  Get your journal out and write about this.  You may discover more about yourself than you even realize.
