Sugar and spice and everything nice

Be a good girl they said.
And so I was.

Always wanting to please and be pleasing.
Kind, nice, sweet and warm.

And while these things are true for me, still it left me with years and years of anxiety….All the repressed emotions. All the repressed feelings causing mayhem and unrest in this one body of mine.

And so now, I feel it all.
All emotinos are welcome here.

Sugar and spice and everything nice and anger and rage and grief and sadness and power and strength and peace. And peace. And peace.

All my emotions are welcome here.

And I welcome you too.

I saught to repress you just as I had been repressed, because I thought that was the right thing and now I say.

All of your emotions are welcome here.

Sugar and spice and everything nice and power and strength and sadness and grief and love and compassion and acceptance and hate.

All move through me now.
All are allowed.

I understand now, that what is allowed eventually moves toward peace.

I let it all flow through me now.

Nothing is repressed.
Nothing is suppressed.

All is allowed.
All is welcome here.

I welcome all of you.

I welcome your sugar and spice and I welcome your anger and resentment and power and strength and love and compassion.

I welcome your depth.
I welcome your range of emotions.

I welcome it all.

And in the depth is where the strength is.
And in the depth is where the power is.

And in the depth is where the genuine lives.

I welcome your genuine expression.
I welcome your moments of grandeur and I welcome your moments of humanness.

I welcome your strengths and I welcome your weaknesses.
I welcome your humility and I welcome your arrogance.

And I welcome my humility and I welcome my arrogance.

We are all learning and growing. Moment by moment, day by day, learning and growing. Rising to the top, sinking to the bottom.

Love, hate. Anguish, despair. Elevated emotions and human conflict. All are welcome here. All are welcome here.

Shame, pride, high, low. Sugar and spice and everything nice and power and strength and confidence and love and compassion and grief and even hate.

Let it all pass through you.
Let it all move through you.

You do not need to act on any of it, but you do need to feel it.

No emotion is banished here.

Step up and be yourself.
Step up and be real.
Step up and be genuine.

Allow your true self to come forward.

When you are feeling taken advantage of, feel it. Don’t repress it because you think life is easier if you don’t feel it.

When you feel resentment, feel it. Allow it. Let it speak to you. Resentment is the barameter telling you something needs to change (either your attitude or circumstance.)

Feel it all.
Allow it all to move through you.

No emotion is banished here.

Everything is welcomed and allowed.

Sugar and spice and everything nice. And power and strength and confidence and joy and grief and sadness and love and frustration.

Let the various weather patterns move through you.

I am a volcano and I am a warm breeze and I am a sunny day and I am a passing storm and I am love and I am kindness and I am sugar and spice and I am warm and I am powerful and I am love and I am strength and I am a warrior and I am afraid and I am ashamed sometimes and I am confident and I am talented and I am gifted and I am weak and I missed the class where they taught you how to do stuff. And I don’t know how to change a tire. And I am strong and I am weak. And I am real. And I am genuine. And I am myself. And I am free. I am free. I am free. I am free to be me in all my glory and all my weakness and all my light and all my love and all my fear and all my anxiety. This human condition thing is hard sometimes. And I am myself.

Sugar and spice and everything nice.

And love and compassion and power and strength and sad and grief and fear and hate and all is welcome here. All is welcome here. All is welcome here.

In this imperfect world, on this imperfect planet hurling through space with no end in sight.

Cultivating Trust

I stumbled upon this affirmation I wrote a few years back. Thought it would be helpful to share during these interesting times.

I trust.

I trust.
I trust.

I let go and I trust the process of life.
I trust that spirit is working with me to manifest what I need.

I trust that spirit is my helper.
I trust that spirit is my partner.

I trust.
I trust.

I trust that powerful guides are by my side.
I trust that I am being guided.
I trust that I live a guided life.

I trust.
I trust.

I trust that there is a spiritual force of life that is always working with me.

I trust.
I trust.

I trust the power of spirit and focus on that power rather than focusing on the size of my problems.

I trust the power of spirit and make that power bigger than my enemies.

I trust.
I trust.

I devote myself to service and I draw in even more powerful assistance.

I devote myself to service and I am surrounded by powerful beings of light.

I let go and I trust the process of life.
I let go and I trust the process of life.

I trust.
I trust.

Take a moment now and immerse yourself in trust. Give yourself permission to remember that powerful beings of light are all around you working with you to manifest what you need. Remember that you are never alone.

When you are tempted to become overwhelmed with your problems, turn instead and focus on the power of spirit.

Focus on the power of spirit within you and the power of spirit all around you. Ask for divine assistance. Focus on the power of spirit and allow the power of spirit to bring you through.

Be sure to couple your trust in spirit with wise decision making and appropriate action.

Be aware of how this impacts the quality of your day.
