Today’s heart whisper… in the silence of my winter 💙

In the
silence
of my winter

my soul rejoices

in the stillness
of its season

my heart sings

a song
calling me
to my
sacred space

within

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… 💖💖💖)

Today’s Soul Whisper… the Universe is always listening🌟

Simply because the Universe does not seem to be answering our call on our schedule, this does not mean the Universe is not listening.

We must make room for the mysterious and stay open to the lessons we came here to learn.

If we don’t see any outside ‘proof’ that we are supported on the path of our soul-mission, we must ask ourselves if we are not perhaps missing the internal ‘proof’.

In this world of instant gratification and ‘power of attraction’ sound bites, the path to true joy may seem like a most unattractive path… embracing and loving what is might be too big a step.

Yet… the Universe is always listening.

The one certainty is that by continuing to search and yearn for joy or peace outside ourselves, we are re-affirming what is lacking within.

We will never find outside ourselves what is not found within ourselves. This is simply a pursuit ‘out there’ for what is missing ‘in here’.

Find the love and Spirit that is already in you, and the Universe will match your new awareness and consciousness exactly.

Dare to love yourself exactly as you are.

Right now.

You are worth it.

…The Universe is listening…

 

In love & light,

Michèle 🌸

Today’s Heart Whisper… daring to dream ⭐️

Dare To Dream Your Beautiful Dream

How brave we are to dream.
To dream what seems
an impossible dream.

It takes courage to dream.
To believe in our dream.
To listen to our heart.
To hear our soul.
To walk our journey
towards the unknown.

Our dream wants change,
pushes discomfort
and asks for action.

It needs love,
it needs patience
and requires faith.

Faith in ourselves.
Faith in the Universe.
Faith in our vision.
Faith in our heart.
Faith in our soul
and faith in our dream.

We may want to run.
We may want to stop.
We may want to scream
and we may want to quit.

Rest if we must,
but we must never stop.

Never stop believing.
Never give up your dream.

Be daring.
Be brave.
Be you.

And one day,
in a single heartbeat,
your beautiful dream
comes true.
