one little word
A single word can be a powerful thing.
It can be the ripple in the pond that changes everything.
It can be sharp and biting or rich and soft and slow.
~ Ali Edwards
Focus - Think about what you want, not what you don't want. Guard your thoughts carefully because they create your experiences. (How very true, I have been thinking lately that I need to focus more on getting myself fit and healthy and stop worrying about why I can't find the time to exercise - so looks like this could be my word)
Playfulness - Fun and play is the Angels' way! They guide you to add fun to your life, and to know that fun is a necessity, not a luxury. (Well yep, we could all do with more fun in our lives - I have always tried to live by the credo "stress less and laugh more", but unfortunately life gets in the way an awful lot of the time)
Harmony - Conflict is resolved in a situation that was troubling you. Know that you deserve this peace and happiness, and accept it graciously. (My star sign is Libra so harmony is very important to me - "Balance" and "Harmony" are a big part of what makes me feel good - so this is looking like my word for the year)
Serenity - You are moving into a time of greater inner peace and tranquility. (Another potential word for 2011 that feels right and is speaking to me)
Divine Guidance - Trust and follow your intuition. It is God and the Angels speaking to you now. (This is interesting - when I follow my intuition things always turn out right - when I don't that's when life goes off course. I know that I have to follow my intuition but sometimes I ignore it - should this be my word for 2011?)
Intention - Your intentions create your experiences. What do you intend to happen? Make sure that your thoughts and feelings reflect your true intentions. (Yet another card telling me to be careful in what I think - should my word be "Intention" or should it be "Positive" as in thinking only positive thoughts and no negative thoughts?)
Body Care - The Angels urge you to care for your physical body. You are asked to eat healthy foods, to excerise regularly, and to avoid toxins. (Well, well, proof yet again that I need to look after my health. I have only used these cards about 1/2 a dozen times in the 4 years I have had them and each time this card comes up! I think I am being told something... and this time I will "Listen". My lifestyle goal for 2011 is to get fit and reduce my weight - so this card has just reinforced that goal! Maybe "Health" should be my word?)
So, what is my word?? Actually my chosen word is "Faith".
"Faith" and "Believe" are the two words that have been coming up a lot lately in most things that I have done, and both words have been in my thoughts for some time. They have over the last 2 days pushed all other words out the way and have become increasingly insistent that they be heard. Even going through the process of the Angel cards is a sign that "Faith" and "Believe" are the words I need to "Listen" to this year. I have chosen Faith over Believe as I feel that ultimately they mean the same things and Faith is the stronger word of the two.
So what do I mean by "Faith"?
To me this word is not just about a faith in God and Angels and their guidance, it is more about me having faith and belief in myself and in what I can do.
I have been thinking over the last few months about who I want to be in the next stage of my life - what sort of 50 year young lady do I want to be. I have this desire to reinvent myself and to have the courage to be the person that I want to be. I think there is a quirky "old" lady hiding inside that wants to come out....
I guess that proves that my "one little word" for 2011 has just "gotta be FAITH"
Til next time,
