Thursday, September 24, 2009 - Today's Words of Inspiration and TWO giveaways!

Hispanic Heritage Month

Each year, from September 15 to October 15, the United States celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month to recognize the economic, cultural, and social contributions of the more than 47 million Latinos residing in the U.S. The dates of Hispanic Heritage Month were selected to include the Independence Day celebrations of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico, and Chile, as well as to incorporate Día de la Raza—a holiday celebrated in Mexico on October 12 observing the colonization, exploration, and multicultural heritage of the Americas.

The National Council of La Raza has a great calendar of events on their website of activities taking place during the celebration HERE.

We sometimes lean on our occupation, culture, socio-economic status or our labels within our family structures to help us identify with who or what we are. At best, it's a mixture of all those things. And as a very proud Latina, I enjoy looking for ways to share community with other Latinos especially during Heritage Month.

Whether you are of Latino Ancestry or not, each and every day is a good day to look internally and figure out what you identify with being. Identify the WHO in who YOU are.

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 identify and unify all the disparate elements that make up who I am into one whole and healed being.'

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.
