BREATHE ...

"Our minds become magnetized with the dominating thoughts we hold in our minds, and these magnets attract to us the forces, the people, the circumstances of life which harmonize with the nature of our dominating thoughts." ~ Napoleon Hill
I've been working hard, trying to finish up my manuscript, Living La Vida (Lymphoma), as well as re-vamping this blog. Recently, I've become increasingly fatigued. Some of the symtoms that plagued me early on in my diagnosis started to manifest. It's been both frightening and frustrating and fear set in. Yesterday afternoon, I stopped the editing process to rest. I lit some candles and some Nag Champa incense and meditated for a while. I had an epihany of sorts. All of the re-editing and re-designing had forced me to go back "there." I had to relive each moment of pain and every raw emotion as if it were happening all over again. Like a horrible t.v. sitcom. Suddenly, I realized that all of these bad memories were bubbling up at the surface, causing me to feel everything. Opening up old wounds that I had pushed aside. Although I still feel fatigued, my spirit feels much lighter today in this realization. I have two choices. I can either put this manuscript aside and forget about it, or, I can continue pushing through to see to it's completion. I choose the second option. I have a story to tell. Take time to relax and breathe over this long weekend.

Spread Your Light & Love ...

What if we are simply to be beacons for one another? I step up for a stranger one day: maybe a stranger steps up for me the next. That's all life is. Opportunities for our beacons to shine. Everything else is just filler. ~Cash Peters
Here is an affirmation that was written for me by my friend and Reiki Master, Lesa Cicciu that I use every day and I hope you will, too: Tell your body, mind, emotions and spirit to remember wholeness, remember the love that you are and the joy that you share with others - that you continue to share with all of us. Align with and stay focused on the light of love, joy, inner peace, vibrant health, vitality, abundant to overflowing shimmering, radiant light surrounding you, clearing you, healing you, expanding in, around and through you - YOU ARE THE LIGHT! Fill to overflowing with this knowingness for nothing else is true. Nothing else exists. Breathe it in and SO IT IS!
