CREATE A SOULFUL LIFE THROUGH PLAY, CREATIVITY, AND JOYFUL EXPRESSION WITH THE JOY JOURNAL SERIES

Instagram

  • My angel message for today was so perfect for me as they always are!! I woke up very sleepy 😴 maybe a full moon hangover 🌕 not sure but I just feel a little out of sorts but anyway my card for today was... “When I think I’ve surrendered I surrender more” 
Right away I intuitively felt some restorative yoga would help to surrender even more 😉

Anyone else want to share there divine daily message in the comments?

  • Maybe it’s the beginning of empty nest pushing into a whole new way of being but I am definitely having more fun in life.
.
Taking the time to ask myself what I want in my life, what that looks like and the most important step…taking action even when I am scared or unsure or even if it might be an inconvenience to someone else.
.
My new Moto is.. just start and perfect along the way!
.
As I take the time to ask myself and I mean honestly ask myself from a heart space, what I want in my life and then take the steps to show up for me, for my life and for my dreams, shifts happen pretty quickly.
.
From this new perspective, I can see how it took WAY more energy to resist the changes and the natural rhythms of life but I also know learning this was to a part of the process.
Every morning I put my hand over my heart and repeat .
“I LOVE YOU I HEAR YOU I AM LISTENING”
.
and then the big ticket is…I actually listen!
.
I would love for you to share in the comments your favorite way to listen to the whisper of your soul or maybe you are not yet listening to that whisper but are inspired to make today the day you begin to listen to the whisper of your soul, please share that in the comments as well <3

  • I am so happy to be back in action!  As I said in the last post I am looking forward to sharing daily inspiration and ideas for creative soulful vision journals. 
So here we go 💗💗💗 Over the past few months I have created the perfect morning practice for me.  I have switched a lot of the things I usually did just out of habit and added more of the things I absolutely love into my morning. 
But one thing that always stays the same is my morning divine messages 🙏

Waking up to a message from above is a great way to begin my day.  Especially on those days when I have woken up on “the wrong side of the bed” and definitely need some inspiration.

You know those decks that have the most in depth messages that take 5 mins just to read the whole description in the book, those are the ones I love to use for my morning messages journal.  One card is all I need and from there I form my affirmation for the day based on the message of the card and set my intention for an awesome day! 
As you can see from the picture my morning message journal is sparkly, bright and to me the flower represent internal growth...all the things I love 💗 
The thing I love the most about this journal is that at the beginning of the month I refill the pages with the messages for the month so every morning it’s like I am opening up a gift 💝 straight from above!! How awesome is that!

A fun thing I have started to do is when I am creating my affirmation for my day is to muscle test before and after I say my affirmation to see how much stronger I am after saying my affirmation. “I AM STRONG, ENERGETIC AND PASSIONATE” has been a common affirmation for me over the past few months. 
I would love for you to share in the comments your go to affirmation at the moment 🙏💜 #dailyinspiration #angelmessages #lifevisioning #scrapbooking #journal #creativejournalling #visionboardseries #createyourlifestudio #soulful #soulfulliving #emptynest #emptynesterslife #emptynesting #emptynester #emptynestgoals #emptynestersroadadventure #enjoylife #positiveliving #mindful #mindfulliving
  • Over the past few weeks I have not been feeling very well so I have had a lot of time to journal and one of my favourite prompts that get my creative juices flowing is “If this was my last year...” As you all know I am in the midst of a big healing journey and I personally find with all healing comes personal growth.  What am I unfolding for my life or better yet what is trying to emerge through me? Are two of my favourite questions. This journal is dedicated to those question’s. Inside I will be using some of my favourite tool’s for journaling in some pretty unique ways so I am able to leave notes, share stories, pictures in unique and fun ways for my loved ones about my favourite memories from this year, my view point from our experiences & their part in my unfolding story.

When my parents passed away my sister’s and I loved going through their notes from the past, letters they wrote and other cool stuff they left.  It also left me with so many questions I wished I had asked and I definitely regret not asking them more about their own life experiences. My dream has always been to record my story in a fun journal form for me, my kids & grandkids to look back in and I am excited to begin this journal 🌟💜. And so I begin... “If this was my last year...”

  • Full moon 🌕 +Spring equinox= letting go of the old story and planting seeds to create the new.

For me New moons are usually more emotional then full moons but no matter which moon it is I am all in for working with the moon energy and the natural rhythm & cycles of nature. So last night  when I was doing my clearing and creating meditation & journal 📓 I kind of chuckled at what was coming up as a priority and I wanted to share the story with you as an example of the small things can lead to great joy and unfoldment.

My family is preparing for our trip to Cuba and in all the excitement and planning my husband asked me if I was going to come snorkelling.  I laughed and said well my heart and soul say absolutely so let’s see what my fear says when I am there.  I am terrified of water so it’s a big challenge to do water activity.  As a child I would hide from swim lesson days just because I was so scared. I don’t mind being on the water in a boat but only in smaller bodies of water so oceans 🌊 well that gets my heart racing! 
So in my full moon ritual that was what came up for me to release was my fear of water.  I did some clearing and visualizing me snorkeling and I am going to continue this until my trip.  I know this soulful adventure to Cuba will be amazing but now I love the soulful challenge to let go of this old fear story and awaken into new possibilities.

Stay tuned and I will let you know how it goes 🙏💜

  • My mind knows that it’s the small things you do everyday that makes the largest impact in life.  As I am creating change within my daily schedule I have found it to be a tough & emotional one working through so many long standing patterns and routines. Breaking into a new routine can feel a little like being stuck in a rut in the road and you get out and thrown back in and get out again and thrown back in.  It’s such a roller coaster of emotions.  Being stuck in this rut has felt powerless and frustrating like I would never get out and on the other hand I also felt as the snow began to melt it seems to free my soul and I began craving the creation of my new story so deeply.

Spring is a time to plant the seeds for many things and for me it’s time to plant the metaphorical seeds of what I am creating for my year.  On my walks as I enjoy the sun and feel my soul awakening from the winters rest I begin to plan and feel into my heart... what is it I am wanting to experience this year? 
This process of creating feels just like falling in love with life!  I love those feeling of vision and empowerment of creating and I also struggle breaking out of the old patterns.  Each day I remind myself this is part of the process and I offer myself love and compassion as I get out of the rut and create this new way of being as I shed my old story 💜

Now to begin creating the new story 🙏💜

  • This leg of my life’s journey is all about redesigning my nest from the inside out and aligning my life with my heart.

This year I have committed to finding my mind, body & spirit balance. As a part of finding my mind body & spirit balance I am flooding my body with nutrition, love & joy on all levels both inside and out....

  • One thing I have discovered on this journey is I need more soulful experiences!!! I absolutely love my life, my family, my kids and my dogs but along the way I forgot who I was and what I love.  I became what I thought everyone needed me to be and honest I never even seem to notice. 
Expanding my heart and soul with soulful experiences seems pretty fun, cool and adventurous which I know it is but the hardest part for me is figuring out ways and experiences to do just that especially on a continual basis since I am just discovering what kind of things make my heart sing.  I want to fuel the soulful fire not just once in a while but to embody it each day as it becomes who I am.  I want to get to know who I am and what I love and enjoy this one sacred life for real!!! Today this is my Mount Everest!  Over the past few months I have written different experiences that  I have come across and today I am making a plan to experience them and not just daydream about them! 
My journal page for today is bucket lists which I am making 3 bucket list...

  • Today marks the beginning of the new redesigning your nest journal series.  This series was born from my own desire to redesign my nest and embrace my new life.

Life changing moments most often seem to come out of no where. One day life is rolling along normal until boom in the blink of an eye it all changes.

These moments happen throughout life and every time I aIways Intend to learn with a little more ease and grace next time but then the pain fades and life goes back to normal. My belief is that these moments are awakening me to my new chapter even though it can be painful I am always intrigued to unfold the new chapter.

My latest life changing moment was when the doctor examined the lesion on my arm and felt like it was suspicious so I seen another doctor who confirmed he felt there was reason to be concerned but could not confirm if it was cancerous until the biopsy which his first opening was 4 months from the date to do the biopsy.

That was challenging for me... To read the full article click link in bio🙏
