Today’s Heart Whisper: Dog lessons for humans from my dog ❤️

Vlog #5:

Dog wisdom: dog lessons for humans from my dog – DOG VIDEO (sweet/funny/touching/inspiring)

Starring….Roxy!!!

There are so many beautiful dog wisdoms and inspiring life lessons my dog taught me.

In creating this video, it was such an emotional journey to look back at the huge collection of photos, videos and memories my dog Roxy and I shared in the last 12 years.

Dogs are truly amazing beings. Loving, loyal, innocent, joyful and the best companions in the world!

I was deeply affected when a friend of Roxy’s passed away on January 25th 2019 (one of my best friend’s dog, Max), and I wanted to create a video that could show the moving bond there is between a dog (my sweet baby Roxy) and her doggy-mom (that would be me).

In memory and honour of Max. Thank you for sharing your beautiful spirit. It lives in our hearts forever. (December 15th 2008 – January 25th 2019)

With love,

Michèle & Roxy 💖💕xo

(Here’s my mom (who’s featured in the video) watching it on my laptop… this moment captured in a photo makes me so happy…sniff… 💖💖💖)

Sunday’s Heart Whisper… Healing the past by loving the present 🌺

Healing takes courage, and we all have courage, even if we have to dig a little to find it.”

Tori Amos

 

The past still lives in us.

Everything that we are now, everything in our lives now, every detail that surrounds us now are clues as to what needs healing whether we are conscious of it or not.

Every moment is a potential opportunity to heal.

We may not be aware of how we resist what needs healing, how we deny it, or how we give it power. We live in its pain by fearing it or by refusing to journey through it to the other side, towards healing.

Yet… healing the past need not be painful.

Within this present moment exists everything we need for healing – within everything that is manifesting physically, within everything that is felt in the heart, and within everything that is whispered by our spirit.

If we can find the courage and willingness to embrace, and yes even love what we discover, letting go of our resistance to seeing and embracing what is, this will have the miraculous effect of also releasing its pain.

Becoming conscious of all that we are now is the key to healing and transformation.

And we become ready to enter into this path of consciousness and self- love by first finding the willingness to be present to all that we are… now.

We are that powerful.

We are that beautiful.

We are that worthy of our greatest love.

Ask yourself in this moment, “Am I willing to love myself exactly as I am right now?”

A single drop of willingness is all we need.

The most microscopic drop of willingness -– the willingness to love and accept ourselves as we are right now – has the power to move the entire Universe and create miraculous healing.

 

In love & light,

Michèle 🌺

Sunday’s Heart Whisper… Awakening to the whispers of inner guidance by choosing love 💖

Inner guidance is heard like soft music in the night by those who have learned to listen.

– Vernon Howard

 

Choosing love

When in doubt, choose love.

           The path towards awakening to the whispers of inner guidance is a path where we consciously choose love. We can find comfort in knowing that we do have the power of choice. When our lives feel chaotic or confusing, or when we are full of fear, we have the power within to infuse our thoughts and decisions with love. By noticing our thoughts, behaviors and actions with mindful-clarity, intention, willingness, and open-heartedness, we can consciously choose a loving path and tap into the infinite well of love within.

            Love is boundless. There are as many ways to experience love as there are experiences to be had. The key lies in recognizing our power of choice when it comes to our experiences of love. This is how we open ourselves up to the whispers of our inner guidance and all of the choices needed – no matter how small – to move us towards the life we love…

            …Towards a life full of love.
