Deep Appreciation
"Today I consciously choose to appreciate and experience all of the wonder and joy already present within my life. I see value everywhere, and I have a genuine and heartfelt gratitude for it all. "
Yes, gratitude is powerful. I once tried to keep a gratitude journal, but I just couldn't keep it up. Like most journals I start out with great enthusiasm and then slow down.......If I were to list all that I'm grateful for in my life there simply would not be enough paper.
"Appreciation is the intention to live with gratitude and consciously acknowledge the value and blessings already within and around you. It's the willingness to notice all the good things and wonderful experiences you already have. "
I once said that I would like to meet all the people in the world....Of course I had no idea how I was going to do that. Then it happened. The Internet!!! WW world wide!
So I started to join groups that offered new countries and people. I noticed that people from other countries seemed to compliment me more. They thanked me for my posts and  for sharing my artwork. There was a real appreciation for sharing knowledge. Now that I'm learning yoga, each day before we start we are asked to set an intention for the session. My willingness to do that at a broader value has begun to see results. My intention is to lead with love and acceptance and be elevated to excellence.
Activities for stimulating Deep Appreciation
2. As you go through your day, take note off all the little and big things in your environment that bring you value. From the scent of a flower to your morning coffee or the car that you drive, you have many, many riches in your life. Let yourself stop and acknowledge the ease and pleasure these things bring.
Appreciation and gratitude can not be brushed away so quickly. I am lucky in so many ways, I am thankful for all the things in my life that make my life easier, but, too I have been blessed with amazing people in my life.
Affirmation for Gratitude and Appreciation
"I have so much to be grateful for! Every day I notice these things more and more. I look around and am very satisfied."
I can not offer too much more to this. I believe it, trust it, do it.

Day 20, 28 days to a more magnetic life

Day 20
28 days to a more magnetic life
Sandra Anne Taylor
living in spirit
2014 Transformation of all kinds are happening

"Today I consciously connect with the unlimited power and value of my eternal spirit. I receive guidance, and I listen to may own intuitive voice more and more. "
Here we 20 and all things have let loose!!! First, intuition is magnetic. I think of things and before too long what I have thought come true. This has happened time and time again. Thoughts become things. For the last five years I have been reading and listening to Mike Dooley. If you don't know who he is , I suggest you look him up.
I have always wanted to go on a meditation retreat. Some thirty years ago my brother in-law introduced me to Transcendental Meditation. I have been practising ever since.
Well, just last week I found out about Wanderlust Festivals, yoga and meditation retreat. So, I have signed up for four days. SWEET!!! Love how the Universe works. Moving mountains, people and making a festival for me.....
Sunflower 1 , look up to the sun
"Whether you want to prioritize it or not, your spiritual identity is the greatest source of energetic power in your life. It's your core connection to the love and amazing assistance of the Divine, the well-spring from which all abundance flows. Through this vortex of unlimited energy, you can access all of the wisdom, information, and power that you will ever need."
Yes to all of that. There is something that is called the innate intelligence. It is connected through your brain to your spinal cord. For me right now the brain is the most powerful healer I have going. Working on the physical body for the last 2 years with intense chiropractor manipulations I have moved my one disc back into positions just a little more. While it is not completely there yet, it moved, and I was told it never would. I have started to use binearal beats for everything from nerve repair, sinus infections to being more creative. It has been just one more tool I use to heal myself.
Positive energy is all around us, my intentions are to be open to everything. Learn from everyone, participate fully, encourage and inspire.
Activities for Living in Spirit
this is the one that I connected to
2. Ask for help from the spirit world. When you need guidance, inspiration, or information, take a moment to connect with spirit and ask your question. Notice when and how you get your answers. Keep a notebook and jot down the impressions you get even your dreams may have the answers you seek.
My big guides for help are Arch Angel Raphael and Arch Angel Micheal. Believe me they can handle anything you got.
Affirmations for Living in Spirit
More and more, I am listening to my intuitive voice. Inspiration comes to me in many ways and at unexpected times, bringing all the knowledge, guidance, and information I may need.
So what's cooking for today.
1. cleaning the house, getting ready for my first, Paint n Party party on Saturday.
2. Since I missed yoga this morning, swimming will have to do this afternoon.
3. Prepare new canvas for art workshop tonight.

The Art of Surrender

"Today I'm choosing to surrender any urgency or desperation I may be feeling about my goals. I live in trust and happiness in the present. I release attachment and let go of need."
Well, in fact yes, surrender, I got sick and just could not get up this morning. I have not gotten to go to yoga for almost 3 weeks!!! First, it was my stitches, then the hut had a water flood and closed for the day, and now today just too sick to get up.
I do have an urgency to me right now. I've been working hard on my diet, and made the mistake of getting on that scale!!! To my credit I have lost 9lbs.
When I read this Intention, this is the song that came to me, I have uploaded the lyric so you can read the song. Surrender is not easy for me, not on any level.
"The law of paradoxical intent says that the more desperate you are to achieve a certain goal, the more your energy will push it away, creating the paradox, or opposite of your intention. When urgency and need become your major motivations, you filter your life through the belief that you can't be happy without your goal. this creates a consciousness of misery and emptiness that the Universe resists, and your lack of present joy will make it impossible to attract the goal or the happiness it could bring."
Well okay now!! That was a lot to take in. Urgency and neediness I know will create a self sabotage situation. That I have done and experienced first hand. My goals are long term, losing 100lbs will not happen in the first month of dieting and believe me resistance sometimes is hard. Have I told you that I'm now on the after Bariatric Surgery diet. Bravo to those that have made that a life commitment. So, diet put in place.....goal is one and half years away.....
I have attention neediness!! oh yes its' true, well I made that up, but I think it's still true.  Not sure what to do about that but I did found an article I thought  helpful.
15 things emotionally strong people don't do.
Activities for Surrendering Attachment
2. Change your attitude from desperation to determination. There's a huge energetic difference in these two approaches. take action and move with peaceful resolve. When your specific goal comes to mind, bless it and release it to the Universe, affirming" I choose to live in the energy of a trusting, peaceful heart. As I realise, I attract more."
Moving from one goal to another has been easier for me since I got my 30 day changes board up. It sits behind my computer everyday. Checking things off makes me feel like I'm on track. One of this months goals is to stay off facebook by noon. It's part of that look at me neediness I have. Like me, like me, like me and than comment!!!
Drives me crazy, so this month facebook is limited.
My specific goal is to live a more creative life, not just making artwork, but one that is more peaceful and not stressed.
Look I found another list.....things creative people do!
I will get right on this as soon as I've finished my book, "Pairs", it's about 850 pages so it will take me a little while. Then I will work on being creative. See I surrendered my need to jump in and attach myself to something new,  and I'm waiting for the satisfaction of finishing something else before stating something new. Bravo.
Affirmations for Surrendering Attachment
I live with trust. I know the happiness that I create today will attract more of my desires to me.
It may be that I'm sick, or this day hit a nerve. But, I'm ready for my 28 days to be over!
I do continue with my writing the daily affirmations in my book. I enjoy that. I think life has been magnetic, but I come from a philosophy that says you are the one to make things happen. So I'm in constant networking mode. I belong to too many groups, volunteer to do too much and I'm starting to think I would like to go to things, and not be the one teaching things. I'm soo happy we decided not to open an art studio. But still I'm having classes in my home. So, lots has to change before I surrender to a smaller life.
What's on my list today.
1. Since I didn't get myself up in time to go to yoga, I think I will go swim. Someone told me that to lose weight all had to do was tread water for an hour.
2. Prepare a canvas for art workshop tonight.
3. Reading. the Paris book is huge.....I can only read abut 20-30min before I get antsy to do something else.

Love Fortunes for Valentines

1 Day to Valentine's Day

1 Day to Valentine's Day.....

Other Than You
by Girly

If I could have just one wish,
I would wish to wake up everyday
to the sound of your breath on my neck,
the warmth of your lips on my cheek,
the touch of your fingers on my skin,
and the feel of your heart beating with mine...
Knowing that I could never find that feeling
with anyone other than you.

To Be In The Arms of Love
by Jean Hart
I have been taken,
numbed, dumbed an stunned
into the arms of love,
Would you kindly turn yourself
inside out and twist
your heart just so
to be in the arms of love,
If you would, could you please
remove all logical thought
and expose yourself emotionally
to be in the arms of love.
Buckle up for the ride of love is intense.
You have no idea how steely
you must be
to be in the arms of love.

Love Fortune Cookie,
This is the one, the last one. Let it be the best one of the bunch.
"True happiness is holding the hand of the one you hold dear."
Aha, again how very true it is.
Many blessing to you,
may your heart hold love, joy and good fortune.

Day 18, 28 days to a more magnetic life

Day 18
29 days to a more magnetic life
choice and consequence
Valenties Cross, acrylic, Jean Hart Artwork
"Today I'm becoming acutely aware of the many choices I face. I consider the consequences of every option and pick the one that's best for my energy and my life."
OK , my life has exploded in the last two weeks. Magnetic!!!! Doors are flying open, opportunities are everywhere. Just last week in three days my daughter and I almost opened a art studio, painting party, private lessens...comedy business!!!!!!
Knowing when to say no has not been something I do. It just keep getting bigger and bigger and bigger with each conversation. Luckily, I live with someone with a strong backbone and a son who's got his feet firmly planted in the ground.
Choices and consequences of that could have been grand, or the worst financial disaster ever.
"Whether you realize it or not, you make thousands of choices each day. In fact, if you look closely at your life, you'll realize that you face an energetic choice in every moment. This is true for every type of decision. .....These are really your defining moments. "
The consequences of the choice we were about to make about opening up a art studio was that it was me and my time all day and night, hers 7 days a week.  We are excitable!!! Considering both the real and the energetic time we could spend only came up hours before signing all the paper work. 
Do not overlook the energy of enthusiasm!!!!
It was fun talking, planning and coming up with ideas. But, in truth my energy level is not that strong. I'm still in P/T, adding exercise to my daily life, dieting to get my weight down.
Keep my own art business alive and fresh.
Activities for making wise choices
2. Remember your energetic consequences. Choose ongoing thoughts, actions, and beliefs that promote the kind of energy you want to project. Always bring your consciousness to your cognitive decisions and your life resonance."
There it is" Always bring your consciousness to your cognitive decisions and your life resonance."
Earlier in the year I ask to be given more art work, I said Universe if you bring it to me I will say yes. Boy did she bring me work. I have commissions, restorations, new opportunities, etc. I'm doing things I'm not to sure of how, but I'm researching, and learning and asking experts to help me. It's been amazing. It's okay that this art studio didn't work out, because I have an art studio I work from each day. So much love came to me from this event, so much faith that we could do it. I know more opportunities will come. This was a lesson for us to go just a little slower and not be run by emotions.
Affirmations for making powerful choices
I make healthy choices when it comes to eating, drinking, movement, and sleep. I honor my body and my mind. I decide with awareness, not unconsidered reaction.
I am so thrilled with this little book. It seems that it is spot on with what is going on with me. Sometimes it's almost a day late. Maybe if I were doing it day to day...but my days are filled with doing and practising what I'm reading. Only 9 days left and I can't even imagine what will come my way!!!
What's on my list today:
1. Finish a restoration commission
2. I have a new Love Letter recipient to write to
3. Prepare for art workshop tonight

Everything about Paris
What do Parisians like to eat while strolling down the street?
A. Baguettes
B. Crepes
C. Truffles
D. None of the above
D. none of the above
Parisians consider it impolite for anyone other than children to eat while on the streets, and even children are rarely seen with anything more than an ice cram cone.
I wonder if you can sip coffee while walking?

Day 17, Personal Purpose

Day 17
28 Days to a more magnetic life
Sandra Anne Taylor
Personal Purpose
Jean Hart Artwork  
"Today I'm choosing to live on purpose. I align my decisions and activities with my own personal, professional, and spiritual priorities. I honor my path and my own propose."
Another perfect reading for today. Being on purpose is what I have been doing with my healthy eating for a month.  I told you that I have to lose 100lbs. and when I went to weigh in for my surgery two weeks ago I was so disappointed that I had only lost 3 lbs. But when I had to come back to get my stitches out the scale moved down 9 lbs from when I began. Good new, the lab report came back and no problems. Still have to wait a week before I can go swimming or do yoga.
"Having a specific purpose in your life helps you stay focused and puts you on a more direct path toward your goals. This isn't just about your professional aims. You also have a personal purpose, including things such as your family and hobbies."
My purpose of course has changed many times. Like many people I went to school to study one thing and have ended up doing another. Well, I am on another track. My artwork has been something that has helped to heal me from another injury.  I am always so surprised when I get emails from people who have connected with my artwork and tell me about their own stories. I love it. I love that I have connected with so many people through my artwork, my quotes, or this blog. My artwork has become a strong purpose in my life and I plan to show and help more people with it. I will soon be giving art classes, private classes, donations, and exhibits.
I have grown to understand that my purpose in life is to
,help keep the art alive.
Activities for Living on Purpose
2. As you go through your day, consider how you can tie your different purposes together. Perhaps there are ways that you can bring a more spiritual energy to your professional or personal life. At the very least, you can make it part of your purpose to more loving and compassionate to yourself and others. In doing so, you"ll stimulate the highest energies of Universal love to assist you in every area of your life.
I have brought meditation back into my life, along with the quite time I get in the morning I have added binaral beats to my healing.
Being thankful, gracious, and grateful each day, and loving everyone in my life,  I feel this has helped me to understand my purpose in life. It's love.
Affirmations for a Powerful Purpose
"A happy and hopeful life is my purpose, now and always."
What's on my list for today?
1. Super Bowl
2. Staying solid with my food and exercise chooses
3. Keeping my creativity up and making plans for the new direction my artwork is going.
