These past few days I have been feeling the effects of the long winter days and I have been needing some extra tenderness and warmth. As I sat at the ski hill waiting for my son during his lesson, enjoying the warmth of the sun and the quiet moment I had to myself, a young boy of about 4 years old patted me on the should and asked my name. He said his name was Jake and he was there skiing with his dad. We had a bit of a conversation together and just before he left, he reached out and gave me a huge hug.
As everyone watched on and smiled with surprise at this little boy’s action, my heart filled with gratitude. I knew I had been sent a note from the Universe. A note that said, “stay strong, be focused and know there is ALWAYS love”. There was simply no other explanation for this tender moment that Jake had reached out to give. If I hadn’t been open to it, or paying attention, I could have missed it. So today, and every day, I am grateful for knowing how to pay attention. Listening does bring its rewards, just as faith does. The difference lies in choice.
So I challenge you today to Listen, really listen to what Life offers, and recognize these gifts as real! ❤️

Ces derniers temps, je ressentais davantage la lourdeur de l’hiver et je reconnaissant mon besoin de tendresse et de chaleur. Assied au pied de la montagne à attendre mon fils, je profitais du beau soleil et d’un moment de tranquillité lorsqu’un jeune garçon d’environ quatre s’est présenté. Il me raconta qu’il était là avec son papa et me parla pour un court moment de lui et sa journée. Juste avant de quitter, il s’étira et m’offrit un gros câlin.
Les gens autour de nous surprient de cette action, sourient de ce que le petit Jake venait de fair, tandis que mon cœur se remplit de reconnaissance. Je savais que je venais de recevoir une note de l’Univers. Une note qui exprimait, ” soit forte, reste centrée et rappelles-toi qu’il y a TOUJOURS de l’amour!”. Il n’y avait simplement aucune autre explication pour ce tendre moment que Jake avait choisi de m’exprimer. Si je n’avais pas été ouverte ou si je n’avais pas porté attention, j’aurais manqué ce moment magique. Je suis donc reconnaissante de savoir comment écouter et comment porter attention. Il y a des grands bénéfices à l’écoute, tout comme pour la foi. La différence est dans le choix.
Alors je vous lance le défi d’être à l’Écoute aujourd’hui à ce que la Vie vous offre, et de reconnaître ces cadeaux comme réels. ❤️

Do you take time every day to think about your life? Do you reflect on what was good about your day? What could have been better? What you learnt? What you are grateful for?
As I sit here thinking about these questions, I feel blessed. I realize that when I review these questions at the end of my day, I always seem to find at least one thing that was great about my day. I know I always learn something new, even if small and there is ALWAYS something to be grateful for!
Happiness is a state that is created by the things we do, what we say to ourself, what we listen to, the actions we take, the food we eat, the people we choose to surround Yourself with, etc. Happiness is a multitude of little daily choices that, at the end of the day, add up to a sense of contentment.
What choices will you make today?

Prenez-vous le temps à tous les jours pour réfléchir à votre vie? Pensez-vous à ce qui a été bien dans votre journée? Ce qui aurait pu être mieux? Ce que vous avez appris? Pour quoi vous êtes reconnaissant?
Lorsque je suis assied ici à réfléchir à ces questions, je me sens bénie! Je réalise que lorsque je révise ces questions à la fin de ma journée, j’y trouve toujours au moins une bonne chose. Je sais que j’apprends toujours quelque chose de nouveau, même si c’est petit et je sais qu’il y a TOUJOURS une raison d’être reconnaissant!
La joie est un état qui est créé par ce que nous faisons, ce que nous nous disons, ce que nous écoutons, les actions que nous posons, la nourriture que nous ingérons, les gens avec qui nous communiquons, etc. Finalement, la joie de vivre est la compilation de ces multitudes de petits choix que nous prenons chaque jours.
Quels choix allez-vous prendre aujourd’hui?

Have you heard of Bach Flower Remedies?

After my bad ski accident a few weeks ago, I was finding it really hard to enjoy myself. It was a pretty bad fall and I was scared and even though I went back several times, I just couldn’t let go of the fear (negative emotions are funny that way). Regardless if it is fear, anger, hate, sadness, or any other negative emotion, these simple to use plants help to restore balance, mood, emotions and inner states. Mind you, they cannot offer you a quality you don’t already possess or rid you of a persisting problem. As with everything in life, you need to address your issues, apply solutions and set in place good quality habits. If you are having temporary issues however, as we all seem to have at moments, these little drops will help restore the calmness.

Balance is the key ingredient in everything. Even in emotions. If you are creating fear, you are off balance. If you are creating anger, you are off balance. If you are constantly thinking of the same thing, over and over again, positive or negative, you are off balance. The Bach Flower Remedies will help to restore that balance. They are homeopathic remedies, create by Dr Edward Bach. There are only 38 remedies because Dr. Bach believed all situations, even over the decades, always came down to the same issues. For that reason, it is easy enough to learn about the Bach Remedies and to apply them to your everyday life. If you prefer, there are therapist who have the proper training with Bach Flower Remedies and who will be able, not only to guide you, but also to create a unique treatment bottle that will answer to your specific needs.

There are basically two ways to go about creating treatment bottles. You can either go with the positive or the negative. Both should end up giving you the desired outcome. If you are just starting out with Bach Flowers, you can reach out to me to set up an appointment, and it will be my pleasure to assist you via a live or web consultation.

Start by writing down the “emotions” or “state” that seems to be troubling you. The best way to do this is by stating an adjective that corresponds to a particular emotion/state (the negative adjectives). You can also choose to write down an adjective to each particular emotion/state you wish to create and live (the positive adjectives). With this list of adjectives, an experience therapist can easily build you a treatment bottle. You can also study the Flowers yourself and create a treatment bottle on your own given you have the mother tinctures of all the flowers.

I have used these Remedies timeless amount of times not only in assisting clients towards their health & wellness goals, but also in my personal and family life. Bach Flower Remedies are safe and easy to use for just about everyone as well as on your pets and in your garden. In each little bottle, you will find a ray of sunshine and a helping hand towards are happier, healthier you!

Occasionally, it can be difficult to pursue something we are not so good at doing. It can even become maddening! In these moments, though, it is when we are given the chance to shine.
Doing, practicing, accomplishing is not all about the final result, it is also about being alive and well enough to practice it, and recognizing it. The art of living, is enjoying to “do”. I am grateful for being granted the opportunity to practice all that I love every day. Are you?

À l’occasion, il peut être difficile de persévérer a faire quelque chose dont nous ne sommes pas très à l’aise avec. Cela peut même devenir très frustrant! Par contre, c’est dans ces moments qu’on a la chance d’exceller.
Faire, pratiquer et accomplir n’est pas strictement à propos du résultat final, cela nous prouve aussi que nous somme en vie et assez en forme pour le pratiquer et le reconnaître. L’art de vivre est de profiter du “faire”. Je suis reconnaissante d’avoir l’opportunité de pratiquer ce que j’adore à tous les jours. L’êtes-vous?
