Please EXcuse the exCuse’!

How many times in your life have you asked someone to excuse you? How many times have you found yourself making an excuse for yourself or someone else?

Asking to be excused is a polite way of asking to be ‘released’ from a requirement.

A few examples: when you were in school and needed to be excused from class, you brought a note from your parents. Others are when you excuse yourself for bumping into someone or you are trying to get someone’s attention when they are doing something else.

What about the other definitions? The english language  is tricky if it is not your mother tongue but it IS interesting that the same word is used to pardon or release someone (or yourself) from blame as well as to offer a “reason” for something you cannot or choose not to do.

How many times a day do you make an excuse or excuse yourself?

Who or what are you exactly excusing and to whom? Are you somehow justifying  or rationalizing something to yourself in the process? Do you find yourself making excuses for someone else? More importantly are you being truthful when you are asking to be excused or are you simply making an excuse?

When you take ownership of the things you do or say there is no need for an excuse! Ownership means taking responsibility for your actions, words, and choices and how they may have affected someone else or possibly even how the excuses (or excusing yourself) affects your life.

Being polite is not just wonderful, it’s the right thing to do. Of course we try to be polite with each other but it’s a completely different energy when we ‘make excuses’  to assign blame,  or we choose not to take ownership of a decision that we (or someone else) has consciously or unconsciously made.

Oh yes. We not only make excuses for ourselves but we make excuses for others and sometimes we do this to assign blame or avoid the truth. When we make excuses for others we are, at some level, healing them but that, my friends, is a subject for another post.

Take a deep dive into “why”!

Don’t ask why, explore why. Exploring WHY you choose a particular word,  an action (or inaction), or why you made a certain choice leads you to learning more about yourself.

Taking an inner journey to explore the “why” opens the door to forgiveness and change.

What you notice in self-exploration is not to be judged. What you did or didn’t do in the past is probably not how you would handle it now. The important steps to this are to see what you see. Acknowledge what you see. Own what you see. Forgive yourself. Taking ownership has a great deal of freedom that comes along with it.

Every thought, deed or action has a learning experience tied to it. Your awareness and ownership of the choices you make (or made) can lead you on an interesting journey of the soul. You may even find that the choices you made in the past were laid on a foundation of programming built by someone else. If that’s the case, it’s time to build your own house on a foundation of ownership and truth.

This is not about being right or wrong in a situation. It’s about owning your choices and taking responsibility for them. If you make a mistake own it and learn from it. Clear the energy. Clear the guilt. Forgive yourself. Once the light of awareness  illuminates an excuse consider it an opportunity to learn and heal.

So please excuse the excuse! Take ownership of your life and stop making excuses! If you find yourself making excuses for someone else in your life forgive them for their lack of awareness. If you make excuses for yourself, forgive yourself.

YOU have the power to transform your life. You have the power to build a foundation without the need to make excuses. If you don’t want to start now, what’s your excuse? ~Shine Your Light Debbie

Energy Vampires are no Treat! Here are Tricks to deal with them

There are some people in this world who suck the life right out of you! You know the ones I’m talking about. The energy vampires! These are the “friends”, colleagues or family members who demand your attention and don’t respect your time, energy or space.

They test your patience, tax your last nerve and  leave you drained and exhausted when you’re around them. Energy vampires are very real and once they’ve gotten their fangs into you it is not only exhausting but the encounter can literally haunt you for days, months or in some cases even years!

Energy vampires don’t always know they are sucking the life out of you. They walk around like zombies full of negativity, drama and pain which they pass around until someone (who is usually trying to help them) becomes the dumping ground. The more you try to help by giving them advice, giving them your valuable time & energy and  giving them a forum to vent, the more you give away. That’s a lot of giving! Not to sound like Dr. Phil but what are you receiving from this relationship?

Yes, there are energy vampires out there but it is beneficial to look at your part in the relationship. What generally happens is you’ve given them permission to do this. You’ve given up your space to them. You are healing them and allowing solving their problems and their life process to become more important than your own.

When dealing with energy vampires as well as being exhausted, you are probably thinking about them and how to ‘help’ but you can’t solve someone else’s problems or take on their pain. Knowingly, why would you want to? It’s fine to want to help someone but if they can’t “have” the help you are giving and don’t take steps to heal themselves you might want to re-evaluate your relationship with them.

At some point after they’ve sucked the life out of you time and time again your awareness will kick in and you get angry. The funny (not haha funny) thing about an energy vampire is they’ve learned to do what they do much like Armand taught Lestat how to be a vampire in Anne Rice’s Vampire chronicles. In other words, by allowing them to continuously suck you dry, you’ve become a willing participant and they know it!

When dealing with energy vampires you will notice that most everything in the vampire’s life including friends, family and work relationships involve some sort of drama. If it’s not their personal drama they are probably complaining, blaming others or gossiping about someone else.

One reason you get sucked in to someone else’s drama is because you are sensitive to others pain. At some point you probably experienced the same or similar pain and you know how it feels. Take notice that you are most vulnerable when you are happy. It is said that misery loves company and energy vampires tend to bring you down to their level. It should come as no surprise that dealing with energy vampires is not easy.

If you are highly sensitive, have health issues and/or challenges of your own it is important to care for yourself first. Also, unfortunately,  you might have to end the relationship with your vampire friend. It’s never easy to sever a relationship of but sometimes it must be done for your own health and well-being.

Here are a few things to do when there’s an energy vampire on the loose:

  1. Forgive yourself! This is important. You were in a sense ‘sucked in’ to the negative vortex. Now that you recognize what’s happening you can effectively take your course of action.
  2. Forgive them and clear the resistance! Forgiveness is a powerful way to clear energy. Energy vampires have probably been sucking people dry for a very long time and don’t realize it. Forgiving doesn’t mean allowing them to do it. It means forgiving them and sending them on their way.
  3. Set boundaries and own your space! Do this from a non-effort, neutral place. Owning your space is the best way to set boundaries.
  4. Value your loving nature, time & energy! What you have to give has value. Your time & energy has value. Think of it as if it were money. How much would you give to others at the cost of your own needs?
  5. Cut the cords and raise your vibration! If necessary, you may need to end the relationship. No one can take your energy or drag you down without your permission at some level. I know that’s hard to hear but it really is up to you.

It is your right and within your power to say no and stop the energy vampire dead in their tracks! Call back your energy from the takers! Your happy life blood is yours to infuse into YOUR life! Help those who can receive your gifts and move on from those who suck you dry!~Shine Your Light Debbie

A Glimpse: The Divine Gift of Awakening to Your Answers

As we move through our lives living, loving and learning we have “glimpses” of awareness; Glimpses of a bigger picture with infinite possibilities.

The committed spiritual seeker works towards expanding this awareness but everyone, whether awareness is worked on or not, will have momentary glimpses as we are guided by our higher selves towards the answers we seek.

Follow the “glimpse” to find the answer and reveal the bigger picture 

None of us can possibly have ALL the answers and while it would be wonderful to be omniscient and omnipotent, the reality is we don’t even know what we don’t know. We don’t have a clue what we don’t know. Sometimes our questions are merely asking for small part of what we want to know. A small part of a bigger and broader picture.

Think of it this way, if you have explored in great detail only a 4 block radius around your home, you will ask questions based on your experience and understanding of that 4 block radius.  What if your answer lies just outside that 4 block radius and you are given  a momentary glimpse of the path that goes there? Will you follow the path or stay safe within your walls, continually asking the same questions over and over, never following your gift of awareness?

Divine gifts of awareness are “snapshots” of the answer but, more often than not, they do not represent the full answer. When we catch a glimpse, the challenge is to not get stuck thinking we understand more than we do or that we are seeing the full picture. When we open up to asking the right questions based on our glimpse of awareness we are expanding our minds, opening up to greater possibilities and finding our answers as part of the bigger picture.

Our glimpses prompt us to look deeper, point us in the right direction and help us ask the right questions. Our glimpses of awareness are snapshots of love and understanding. The more we see, the more we understand. The more we understand, the more we are able to heal and forgive ourselves and others.

Follow your glimpses of awareness so they lead you to ask the right questions. Follow your glimpses of awareness so they lead you to a place of being open and able to receive more glimpses of awareness. Follow your glimpses to see the bigger picture and find answers to your questions…one glimpse at a time.~Shine Your Light Debbie

Validate Your Higher Self!

Validate your Higher SelfDo you have trouble validating our own spirit? Do you seek others to confirm (validate) what you know in your heart or sense and feel is true? Have you gone to a medium to speak to spirit yet do not acknowledge your own?

Why is it so difficult to validate (confirm) our own spirit as  powerful and capable? We call on the ascended masters or archangels for healing and sometimes forget WE have lifetimes of information. We have the power to heal ourselves, to transform and to create a new reality.

I have noticed that many people place more importance on messages from the “other world” instead of listening to the council that comes directly from their own spirit.  Our higher selves have answers and, if we choose to listen, will give us the very answer we seek.

Often times our answers are right in front of us but until we step out of the chaos and find stillness we cannot acknowledge or accept those answers that come directly from our higher selves. In finding stillness we acknowledge our eternal spirit. In taking time to listen to our own council we find certainty and little by little begin to trust our instincts; Trust our intuition, our inner voice. We learn to trust our “higher self”.

Our higher selves are silently guiding us. They faithfully and consistently guide us to experiences that, if we are open and aware, teach us valuable lessons. Our most challenging and hellish moments offer the greatest lessons if we choose to breathe, find stillness and listen. Through what sometimes feels like “tough love” our higher selves help us heal.

During trying or challenging periods what makes us so uncomfortable is that we are resisting our growth period. It’s possible we are resisting the answer we see or we are in effort attempting to change an outcome. Oddly, there are even times we are simply resisting the healing being offered from the experience.

Validating your higher self is like finally coming home after a long journey! It’s comfortable, full of truth and brings you certainty. Validating your higher self is a breath of fresh air and all you have to do is ACKNOWLEDGE IT! Acknowledging your higher self is acknowledging your eternal spirit. It is acknowledging you are powerful. It acknowledges the wisdom of many lifetimes you have brought with you.

Take a moment to check in with yourself. Is there a question you’ve been asking? Are you looking for a message? If so, find a place of stillness within, acknowledge your spirit. Welcome yourself home and decide to accept whatever answer you receive. Validate your higher self for holding your hand and guiding you on this very human journey.~Shine Your Light Debbie

Angels in the Room!

“My heart is singing for joy this morning! A miracle has happened! The light of understanding has shone upon my little pupil’s mind, and behold, all things are changed!”~Anne Sullivan

Angels among us

Angels Among Us

This photo was captured in a recent women’s leadership meditation workshop I taught on clearing limits. Clearing limits, among other things, allows us to see that which could not previously be seen. In a way you could say it’s about “seeing the light” and that’s just what happened during the workshop.

The healing light you see in the photo is a blessing and healing. Each of these already powerful and successful women took yet another step toward owning their power by being in harmony with their spirit. Each of them cleared limits and opened a new space to “see”. They opened up to new possibilities of collaboration instead of competition by collaborating with their own spirit.

“A Woman in harmony with her spirit is like a river flowing.
She goes where she will without pretense and arrives at her destination
prepared to be herself and only herself ”~Maya Angelou

In order to be an effective leader we must skillfully navigate all our relationships and there is no relationship more important than the one we have with ourselves. Although this was a Women’s Leadership Workshop everyone benefits from being in harmony with their spirit. Everyone benefits from clearing limiting thoughts and expanding creativity. Being in harmony with spirit touches others whether they are aware of it or not.

The angels are here to support you. It’s time to “see the light”. Who knows, you may even receive a blessing that’s captured in a photo when you least expect it! My heart truly is “singing with joy” for “A miracle has happened! The light of understanding has shone upon my little pupil’s mind, and behold, all things are changed!”~Shine Your Light Debbie

It’s a Beautiful Night for a Moon Dance!

full moon“Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.”~Buddha

When the full moon shines it illuminates the earth and sky. What a wonderful reminder to use her gentle energy to heal and replenish! In an all to often harsh world I find that the challenge many people have does not lie in “getting rid of” energy but the forgetting to replenish and return to their natural flow after everything has been released.

Whether scientific or energetic everything has its own balance and the moon affects us just like the sun. The sun is a powerful energy; The moon is a much more gentle energy and we need both in our lives to help us keep in balance and harmony. I think the full moon’s gotten a bit of a bum rap. From movies about werewolves and vampires to the myth that people go a little crazy during a full moon. There are those who cringe or prefer to stay inside and not go out to simply gaze at the beauty of a full moon sky.

Many years ago I went on a women’s camping retreat in Death Valley and we decided to go on a night hike in the Mojave desert. Since the moon was full we didn’t take flashlights. The excitement was palpable as we left our cars and walked into the sand dunes. We stopped to have a ceremony of sorts. There was a gentle breeze blowing thorough the quiet desert and we took time in silent meditation, honored the moon and then as a group of psychic women might do, we started howling and giggling at the bright orb in the sky. It was probably one of the most healing moments I’ve every experienced.

Grounding in the desert under a full moon with desert flowers in bloom has such a peaceful energy about it; That is until you get so absorbed in the beauty and celebration of the moment, you realize you didn’t pay attention to the direction you took while walking IN! Yes, about 20 of us were lost in the desert with only the full moon to light our way. No sign of our cars, the parking lot nothing! Just the endless sand dunes and the light of the moon.

We started walking and trying to find our original trail in but to no avail. The fear lit up, past lives lit up and each person wanted to control the direction we would go. Finally we grounded, cleared the fear, control and female competition (again something that a group of powerful psychic women will do) and allowed our situation to simply BE. Then like the Phoenicians, Greeks and many of our ancient ancestors who traveled to new lands, we navigated back with guidance from the moon.

What probably surprised me the most was how calming and healing the moon’s energy is even though it is a very different from that of the sun. The moon has a quiet way of guiding you back to yourself.  In contrast to the sun, the moon’s shimmery glow gently illuminates the darkness and, if you let it, allows you to open your eyes to that which you haven’t wanted to look at quietly and with little drama. Using the energy and glow of the moon to guide you back “home” brings a sense of serenity and peace within.

When was the last time you howled at the moon?  When was the last time you allowed the moon to guide you? When was the last time you took a few moments to gaze into the sky to admire the moon and stars? When was the last time you did a full moon meditation and used that energy to heal? When was the last time you….“danced by the light of the moon“?~Shine Your Light Debbie

How to Follow YOUR Yellow Brick Road…

Yellowbrickroad

“To ‘know Thyself’ is considered quite an accomplishment.” ~L. Frank Baum, The Marvelous Land of Oz

As a soul each of us has a purpose and our very own yellow brick road.  The road I speak of is not a myth, story or movie yet not unlike the Wizard of Oz, it is the path we walk on this journey we call life.

The path we walk is filled with joyful experiences, challenges, forks in the road and occasional road blocks to help us gain experience. It is the journey of a lifetime! Road blocks, challenges and forks in the road are there to help us heal and come back to ourselves and the path we chose before we took this human body.

We are bound to meet untruths that are deeply hidden within our psyche and some of these we falsely believe to be our own truth. One of the biggest challenges is to find out which of our “beliefs” is really our truth or someone else’s. It is what we believe to be true about ourselves which causes us to make a mountain out of a small stepping stone.  To help you uncover the false beliefs you hold imagine if the scarecrow, tin-man and lion are inside of and a part of you.

You will run into these characters often as you skip down your yellow brick road and you may have noticed that every time you do, you momentarily stop your journey. The scarecrow represents your thoughts and intellect. The tin-man represents your identity and self-worth; And the lion represents your empowered self. The part of you that is certain, brave and courageous.

The Scarecrow (Thoughts and intellect)

“The Scarecrow watched the Woodman while he worked and said to him “I cannot think why this wall is here nor what it is made of.” “Rest you brains and do not worry about the wall,” replied the Woodman, “when we have climbed over it we shall know what is on the other side.”~ L. Frank Baum, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

Think about this character for a moment. He spent his whole life “thinking” he didn’t have a brain and wasn’t smart. He believed this so strongly it became his truth when in reality, it was someone else who once told him he wasn’t smart enough to do anything but scare away crows from the field.  What beliefs do you hold that have kept you stuck in the corn field? Did someone once tell you, you weren’t smart enough or your grades weren’t good enough to carry out and fulfill your dreams? The thing I love about the scarecrow is that he stopped “thinking” and just started walking down the yellow brick road with Dorothy.

He used his intuition to walk beside her with the faith and knowledge that he would find what he was seeking which, in the end, he discovered was already there. What “thoughts” of doubt creep in while you are walking your path? Do you over analyze everything? Are you seeking something which you already have or did someone once rain on your parade and tell you, you weren’t smart enough to accomplish your goals?

The Tin-Man (Identity and self-worth)

No, my head is quite empty,” answered the Woodman; “but once I had brains, and a heart also; so, having tried them both, I should much rather have a heart.”~L. Frank Baum, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

How passionate the Tin-man for wanting a heart! Perhaps he believed he didn’t have one because he felt unworthy because he hadn’t done enough good deeds. Many believe they are un-lovable or at some level feel unworthy. They have difficulty loving themselves or lack passion because they are not recognized or identify self-worth with being loved by another. What do you believe about yourself? Do you love yourself and all that you are? Do you identify with someone else’s picture of what love is or think you don’t have love all around you and inside you? Your ability to love and your self-worth is not defined by your good deeds or giving to others although it’s very noble to do so.

Sometimes the best thing to do is empty your head and allow the love in your heart to grow and grow until it surrounds you like a bubble. What you believe about yourself is what you show others unconsciously. If your belief is that you are separate, you will be separate. If you believe you are not worthy until…(you do this or that) you will spend a lifetime identifying with a very false belief. If you are seeking to find love outside of you, look inside first!

The Lion (Your empowered self)

“True courage is in facing danger when you are afraid…”~L. Frank BaumThe Wonderful Wizard of Oz

Everyone encounters fear on their journey but when you truly believe in yourself and face your fears you have courage and bravery to move past them.  You are stronger than you think! If you believe you will be defeated you certainly will be! If you let fear of failing in the past take over, you’ve just given over all your personal power to the fear. Fear is very real but how much of that fear is based in reality? Are you still afraid to ride a bike because when you first took off the training wheels you fell down and scraped your knee? No! You got back on that bike and continued riding down the road. Each time you face your fears and get back on the bike, so to speak, you empower yourself more and more.

The path to self empowerment is to face your fears and obstacles and overcome them. Do not believe the voice in your head that says you are not strong enough, brave enough or courageous enough for that is the fear speaking. What you believe about your strength is what you give strength to!

Smoothly following your yellow brick road is as much about about knowing yourself and where your beliefs come from as walking the path. What you encounter on your path as an obstacle is something to help you learn more about yourself and just like in the Wizard of Oz you will find that what you thought you didn’t have is already there inside you! Happy Trails!~Shine Your Light Debbie

Meditation: What’s the Purpose & Benefit?

InnerselfHave you ever asked yourself why meditate and turn your attention within? What’s the purpose of quieting the mind, getting grounded and centered? Why meditate at all? Do you use meditation to solve your problems? Why bother meditating when things are going well? What’s the benefit? These are interesting questions to ponder!

Often times I come across people who only meditate when they are going through tough times. Other times I hear from people that they are going through tough times and they can’t meditate. It does surprise me that the simple act of quieting the mind is so difficult when the drama and chaos of life, in other words ‘a growth period’, stops us from doing the very thing that is needed to get through it!

Meditation helps you get through a growth period FASTER!

It allows you to find answers by listening, changes your vibration and gives any energy or problems that you’ve taken on from others to gently fall away. A grounded meditation and release actually gives the energy a place to go. Meditation helps you access your inner sanctuary and is a safe place to get away from the swirling chaos. It’s very much like taking a vacation from your life for a few moments.

Meditation doesn’t solve problems.

You don’t need to “solve” anything! In fact, you are not a problem, your life is not a problem and NOTHING needs solving! You were born into your body to learn and experience exactly what you are learning and experiencing! It would be wonderful if our lives were all perfect with nary a stumbling block but that is not the case. Meditation doesn’t make your life perfect and bring you everything you want. It does however, bring you into present time and might even allow an answer or two to sneak in! Trust me, your problems will still be there when you finish meditating but perhaps they won’t seem as monumental as beforehand.

Meditation creates a sense of peace.

It allows you to change your perspective about what’s going on. Much of the time you will notice that most of the chaos has nothing to do with you personally, however it also allows you to own the part you played…and there is always some part you played. If you find it difficult to quiet down your thoughts, just allow them to float by, acknowledge them and the fact that you have that much going on then bring your attention back to the peace and safety of your inner sanctuary.

Why meditate when things are going well?

When everything is happy and moving along smoothly taking the time to meditate not only helps keep things moving along smoothly but when (not if) you run into a road block you will handle it more easily. It is a great time to dream, create something new and focus on your passion. It is a time to validate all that you are and shine your light even more brightly.  Each time you do this when you are feeling good, your body will remember what it feels like and make it easier to come back to that space other times!

The great thing about meditation is that by changing your vibration and releasing that which isn’t you, you change your life and heal. You change how you view life with its many obstacles AND find answers for how to handle them. You don’t need anyones permission and you may even heal those areas of your life where you feel stuck! Don’t believe me? Goggle it and check out the latest scientific research on the benefits of meditation. Why not start today and create a whole new world?~Shine Your Light Debbie

A Message to Heal Your Heart….

Today’s healing message is about love and healing your heart. All of us have had our hearts hurt at one time or another and it sometimes causes us to retreat and hide. There are those longing for love yet have been so hurt in the past they bury it deeply within the heart. They are no longer able to bare their soul, be who they are and shine from within lest they be hurt again.

Love makes you vulnerable but it is that very love, the love you have in your heart, which has strength beyond measure. Love allows your soul to “crawl out from its hiding place”.  Although we love others and wish to be loved, love is not anything outside of you. Love is within you. You came from love and you ARE love. Your soul IS love!

The best way to heal a sad heart is to find that love within and start loving yourself again. Surround yourself in the love you are. Embrace the love in your heart. Love is never ‘not good enough’. Love is never ‘wrong’. What makes one feel that way is the ego and mind thinking love is outside of you. Love is not a thing to be chased after because it’s already inside you. Love is a vibration that brightens your spirit allows you to shine.

Close your eyes for a moment. Imagine yourself radiating and sitting in the middle of a place of pure love. Breathe in the love that is surrounding you and allow it to transform any pain you feel. Exhale what has now been transformed into love to send love out into the world. If someone has hurt you, allow yourself to bring in the light of forgiveness and imagine them in a bubble of love outside of you then bring your attention back to radiating and surrounding yourself in your own love vibration.

If you are seeking love, you must find it within yourself lest you find yourself in a game of hide and seek. Perhaps it’s not someone else who is “it” in the game. What if the “it” who is seeking is you and what if your soul came out of hiding? Imagine the possibilities of shining instead of hiding. Bare your soul by radiating love! Allow your soul to come out play for awhile!~Shine Your Light Debbie

Set the Energy Lest it Set You!

SeahorseWhen was the last time you woke up in the morning and set your own energy vibration for the day? Yes there are things to do, people to see and responsibilities that must be met but taking the time to set your energy allows you to sail through your day without becoming the effect of the other energies you encounter.

Setting your energy means deciding how you want to be no matter what you have to do. It is about giving yourself the space to be YOU in any situation. When you set your own energy you are shifting the power from those things outside of you to the power you have within you. You are choosing the quality of energy you want to put forth for the day and in doing so, you are choosing the vibration of how you respond as well.

How do you set your energy?

To begin, turn your attention within and quiet your mind. Instead of starting your day with your attention on all those things you must do, check in with yourself. See how YOU are doing. If your energy and attention is on all those things you have to do and how you will do them you are already responding and letting the energy of responsibility set you. Turning your attention within and choosing your vibration shifts the energy and takes the weight of responsibility off your shoulders.

What feels good to you? What quality of energy do you want to experience while going through your day? Imagine what it would be like  to do those things you have to do with ease; Without becoming responsible for being responsible, without resistance and without needing to control it or becoming the effect of the energies. Imagine a day filled with love or enthusiasm or joy or peace or whatever quality of energy you want AND you are able complete your tasks.

Imagination and visualization are powerful tools that can change your day in an instant. If all you can “see” when you look at your day is everything you have to DO and you worry about how you’re going to get it all done you are already in resistance to it! Wouldn’t you rather swim with the tide instead of against it? Swimming with the tide doesn’t mean you’re going along with the program it simply means there are things you have planned in day and you choose to be you and SWIM rather than be tossed about and swept away with the tide.

Take a few moments at the start of each day to set your energy and vibration how YOU want it. All to often we go along with the “program” forgetting that each of us has the power to set our own vibration. Look within and find that vibration that makes you feel good and set the energy of the day that way. There may be challenges, obligations and responsibilities you face but when you set the energy of your day you will face them with grace and ease. Today I’m setting my vibration at love and inner peace. How about you?~Shine Your Light Debbie
