Friday, December 04, 2009 - Today's Words of Inspiration and FIVE giveaways!

Progress Meter!

How is the countdown to Christmas going? Have you been pacing yourself? Just a little time each day devoted to your preparations?

In 'Casa de Butterfly' our tree is up and gracing the living room with it's shiny lights and special ornaments that bring so many memories to mind each time I see them! There is still so much more to go, the door hasn't been done yet, the stockings have not yet been hung by the chimney with care and there is still a ton of shopping left to do. But I am following my own advice, and pacing myself.

I am filled with excitement this holiday season, and looking forward to both sharing inspiration and receiving it, spending time with friends and family, and preparing the meals that just plain say 'home for the holidays'.

Part of my tradition is watching the Tree Lighting Ceremony from Rockefeller Center in my hometown of New York City! What are some of your favorite holiday traditions?

Remember to not only stop and enjoy the end results of your hard work, but remember to enjoy the process. The process is where the tradition actually originates! What is your favorite way to enjoy the process, is it a tree trimming party, getting together with friends and making cookies or batches of eggnog? (or if any of my fellow Latina friends are reading this, making coquito? or pasteles?)

Use 'Today's Words of Inspiration' as a breathing meditation to still your mind, quiet your thoughts and bring in positive energy. As you inhale bring in only positive energy by saying in your mind, I breathe in positive energy (or you can say creative energy if that is what you wish to create more of) and as you exhale, Affirm out loud today 'I will enjoy the preparation process and time spent with friends and family this weekend.'

Spend some time each day enjoying focused breathing AND soul guided meditative visualization, in doing so, you can bring about amazing, profound and powerful changes in your life.

Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by universal forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul. Do this at least twice today and see how by taking a moment away from the hectic pace and breathing in positive energy and affirming what you wish to create, your thinking will become different.

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.

1) press the follow button - the google pop up wizard will open, this is not an ad and your pop up blocker will not block it

2) tick the option that reads 'follow this blog publicly' once that button is selected, hit follow again - it should now read 'you are now following'

3) if the follower count went up you know you did it succesfully, if your profile has a picture, that picture will be the first one on the left side. If your profile doesn't have one, it should still be searchable on the members list. (Remember, following a blog, does NOT subscribe you to receive emails, you have to subscribe separately to do that, you will not receive emails for following)
