Nothing goes away until it has taught us what we need to know.

We are approaching the end of the 2016. It’s a good time to reflect.

What is left undone? What do you need to express that you didn’t? Who or what do you need to let go of?  What do you need more of in your life;

woman-snow-and-tiger

  • Simplicity
  • Money
  • Ease
  • Kindness
  • Friendship
  • Forgiveness
  • Happiness
  • Work
  • Good health

It all begins with you. You need spiritual faith to know when to let go. Wisdom for making good choices and the ability to know when to just laugh.

Blessings,

Gina

It isn’t vanity to appreciate yourself, it is a necessity.

french-vintage-womanWhen was the last time you romanced yourself?

  • bought yourself flowers,
  • savored your favorite wine,
  • ate food you loved,
  • made yourself feel truly loved?

It isn’t vanity to appreciate yourself, it is a necessity.

Eat with Gratitude and Pleasure

hot-chocolate-christmasWe live in a fast-paced world of technology and we are inundated with information. We read something on the internet and might assume, that its true. I have listened to the so-called experts for decades, especially regarding health and nutrition. When ever I went against my gut feelings, I felt a loss of my personal power because I believed them instead of myself.

 

Question: What do Louise Hay, Anthony Robbins, Andrew Weil, Deepak Chopra and   

Doreen Virtue have in common?

Answer:   These people are leaders in the field of personal development.

They all eat different diets and it works for them.

We are evolving beings and our requirements for nourishment changes. In the last few years I decided to start eating intuitively because what ever I was doing before was not working for me. Sure, knowledge and information is a good thing but we still get to choose. Let’s face it not even the experts can agree on what constitutes good nutrition.

At times, I still find it challenging to decide what to eat but I know that I am getting better at it because I keep asking myself what will work for me now. I don’t judge myself when I choose something that didn’t feel good after I ate it because I know I did my best. This article isn’t about food but about learning to listen and trust yourself by paying attention to your intuition.

I want to enjoy my food and I don’t want to worry about the food police. As we approach the holiday season there might be a temptation to be a glutton and stuff yourself silly but why? I know that I too must remind myself of the most important of vitamins.

Vitamin G – eat with gratitude

Vitamin L – eat with love

Vitamin P – eat with pleasure

Vitamin R – eat in a relaxed state of being

Vitamin S – eat and drink slowly and savour

Buon Appetito

How can you respect yourself if you’re afraid to be who you are?

Growing up my parents were always worried about what the neighbours thought. They were afraid to say anything that would bring shame to the family.

Was there something special about the people in our neighbourhood that I didn’t know about? Were we the only family who had problems?

Looking back now, I often wonder what heck were my parents thinking?

Today when I catch myself caring about, “what will the neighbours think” I say to myself it’s none of my business what the neighbours think!!

While I am not totally free of what people think about me and caring a little wee bit is ok because there is a potential for growth however I can say this for sure; I care less and less. Its not about being rebellious or controversial its more about really liking who you are.

Life and people don’t always make sense but being honest and true to yourself makes really good sense.

If you can’t accept who you really are how can anyone else?

With respect,

Gina

I never loved another person the way I loved myself.

Socrates – How to Solve a Problem

monk-meditationA note about desire. From Joseph Murphy – The Power of Your Subconscious Mind

 A young man asked Socrates how he could get wisdom. Socrates replied, “come with me.”

 He took the lad to a river, pushed the boy’s head under water, held it there until the boy was gasping for air, then relaxed and released his head. When the boy regained his composure, Socrates asked him, “What did you desire most when you were under water?”

 “I wanted air,” said the boy.

 Socrates said to him, “When you want wisdom as much as you wanted air when you were immersed in the water, you will receive it.” Likewise, when you really have an intense desire to overcome any block in your life, and you come to a clear-cut decision that there is a way out, and that is the course you wish to follow, then victory and triumph are assured.

 Now that is something to think about.

Blessings,

Gina

Activate Your Power

Activate Your Power

Recently I’ve been having a hard time sticking to my morning self-care routine. I’ve had a challenging past year with family, work and my health. This is the time I needed my self-care routine the most yet it’s the easiest time to give up.

During difficult times its easy to eat a little more, skip work outs and meditations. In moderation there is nothing wrong with any of these things however don’t abandon taking good care of yourself especially when you need it the most.

As I was preparing to my write out my morning self-care regime, for the next few weeks a flash of intuition came to me “you must activate your power”.

A stove has the power to cook food but you need to turn on the fuel. Water has the power to quench your thirst, clean your environment and enjoy a wonderful swim in the lake or ocean but all of these things require action.

You have personal power but just like Dorothy and her friends in the classic movie Wizard of Oz you must know that you have the power and you must understand how to use it.

During those times when you are feeling helpless and your life feels stuck like old gum stuck to the bottom of your shoe ask yourself what can I do right now to tune into my personal power?

Do I need a long walk in nature? Can I talk to a good friend? Do I need to seek help from a professional or spiritual advisor? Do I need a nap, meditation, protein, vegetables or a good old fashion cry?

I encourage you to tune into yourself and find ways that nurture and support you. You may not feel it at the time but the Universe loves and supports you.

Read the suggestions listed below and if your heart feels lighter when you read it then it might be worth a try.

Self-Nurturing Actions

-walk in nature

-talk to caring person

-journal your feelings

-yoga or dance

-paint, colour or any type of art

-have a cry and let things out

-hit pillows and yell

-write a letter to the Divine

-exercise of any kind

-read uplifting bookings

-watch funny movies

-eat natural wholefoods

-take a bath and go to sleep

When you tune in to yourself and ask “what do I need in this moment” and then take inspired action, you are tuning into your personal power. In every day lingo you are loving and taking good care of yourself.

The more you take good care of yourself the more you have to share and give to others.

Blessings,

Gina Rizzo

When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy, care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life. ”

Your stuff love it, use it, or release it.

The gift of letting go of clutterRelease and Rejuvenate

I have been organizing my dressers and closets since I was a child, long before organizing became a trend. I find it very therapeutic and it always gives me the feeling of a fresh start.

Your belongings are reflections of you. They contain memories, stories and take up space physically and emotionally. Over-stuffed cabinets, disorganized paperwork, mementos of past relationships, broken and missing jewelry pieces and boxes of childhood toys.

For many the idea of throwing out or donating their “stuff” is difficult. The associations with it keep the memories alive. Sometimes those memories aren’t even good ones. So why keep them?

Clutter and holding on to things can also be a sign to the universe that you don’t believe you’ll have the resources to buy or replace them if needed. Someone out there can use what you’re not using and might really need it.

Holding on to your “just in case” items that you haven’t used in years or decades can promote more lack. Excess clutter can block the energy from flowing in you. There’s literally no room for new energy to come in.

If you live or work in a cluttered environment, ask yourself what’s the payoff? That is something that only you can answer. There is nothing wrong with keeping cherished mementos but don’t let them overtake your space or have you living in the past.

If you feel overwhelmed with the amount of stuff you have, start with one drawer or closet per week. It doesn’t have to go all at once, but you will like the feeling of space and renewal that you want to say goodbye to those unused items.

Blessings,

Gina Rizzo

Deep within each of us is a longing for home. We yearn for a place of comfort where we can be ourselves,
where we can realize our dreams.

Life is simple what we give out we get back

ballonsI love the idea of receiving gifts from the Universe. These can be material things, or the right circumstances, “exquisite timing” or a general sense of ease and flow in your life.

Many individuals find it easier to give than to receive. There seems to be some sort of modesty or discomfort in truly allowing ourselves to receive. Many associate receiving with greed, when in fact they have nothing to do with each other.

Some people believe that if they take too much, there will be nothing left for others. We do not live in a universe where such scarcity is a concern. The universe is constantly renewing its supply because it is the source of unlimited supply.

Every day you are receiving life. The breath you breathe is constantly available. Think about this, when was the last time you stopped to worry, “what if, after this breath, there was no more air to breathe?” It sounds absurd, but we blindly trust that it will be available.

You are not doing anyone any favours when you close yourself off and do not allow yourself to simply receive.

To live in balance is to allow yourself to give and receive in a way that feels natural and comfortable to you.

Whether you are receiving a compliment, a cup of coffee or a stack of cash, don’t shy away. Be grateful for it and say “thank you”. The Universe wants to lavish you with abundance and well-being.

Hugs,

Gina Rizzo

Life is really very simple what we give out we get back.
