Thursday, March 11, 2010 - Today's Words of Inspiration and Great Giveaways!

Would You Really Say That To A Friend?

Ask yourself this question today, Would you say that to a friend? Before saying anything to yourself ask that question!

Our self talk, the words that play in our heads as we react to people and situations in our day to day to life are very powerful. Somehow those non-verbal words that you never speak aloud, and say only to yourself are even more powerful than those spoken aloud.

Sometimes we are way more critical with ourselves than we are with others. Sometimes we are our own worse enemies, and say meaner things to ourselves than we would ever dream of saying to a friend! Why can't we be as supportive of ourselves as we are to our friends?

Today focus on being as kind to YOURSELF as you are to everyone in your life. If someone drops something would you yell at them? Then don't yell at yourself. If someone forgot something at the store, would the world end? Then don't berate yourself if something on your 'to-do' list goes undone!

Be as supportive of yourself and your own needs and initiatives as you are with everyone else. Making an active point and a concerted effort to do this daily will entirely change your outlook regardless of your circumstances!

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 speak words of kindness toward myself at all times!'

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.

NOTE: Readers have asked us to make entering the contests and giveaways, faster and easier. Your wish is our command! We have moved our 'Today's Butterfly - Featured Site(s) of the day, which is where we host our giveaways, to the upper right hand side of the page. It will be located here from now on to make entering the giveaways faster and easier. Keep the suggestions coming, remember we also have a NING group with real time chat, you can give us your comments and suggestions in REAL time, how cool is that?

NOTE 2: Twitter followers: please remember you must also follow Ascending Butterfly using Google friends connect on the upper right hand side of the page for your entries to be processed. And remember if your profile does not have an email and you don't leave your email in your entry, we will not accept your entry. Make sure your entry or your profile have your email address!

Just a helpful Reminder: How to Follow Using Google Friends Connect:

Please look to the upper right hand side, where the follower pictures are. (Note the number of followers before you start this process)

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)

Are you getting the dreaded 'Your Entry Can't Be Processed' message when leaving an entry or comment? Before hitting enter, highlight your comment and COPY it. If you get that message after hitting enter and your comment is still there, just ignore the message and hit enter again, then you will get a screen with a captcha code, enter the captcha code, then submit and VOILA. If after you hit the submit button the first time, you get the dreaded message and the comment 'disappeared' no worries, that's why I asked you to copy it in the first step. Paste it back in and submit again. This has worked for me when comment boxes have glitched on me, and I hope it helps you too!

  1. Tracy, Another way that I look at things is that I try to envision God with me everywhere I go and when I do that I am less critical of myself and less nasty. I say this because so many people would behave and act differently towards themselves and others if God was constantly in the room with them.

  2. Very True Johnica! A profound reminder indeed!
