An Attitude Of Gratitude 💖

Gratitude is one of the most overlooked tools that we all have access to every day. Cultivating gratitude doesn’t cost any money and it certainly doesn’t take much time, but the benefits are enormous.

Did you know that just by being grateful you can shield yourself from negativity? One study shows that being grateful can instantly make you at least 25% happier, it rewires your brain, eliminates stress, strengthens your relationship with yourself and others and it increases your mental strength. 

Not only that, but God wants to remind you that He wants you to focus on gratitude instead of focusing on the things that don’t seem to be working right in your life. He has promised us this; “And he who receiveth all things with thankfulness shall be made glorious; and the things of this earth shall be added unto him, even an hundred fold, yea, more.” (D&C 78:19) How amazing that God has promised us that as we focus on gratitude, He will bless us with even more than what we have now.

The more we’re able to practice gratitude the more we will invite joy into our lives. And Practicing is the part that will really change our lives. So, how can you make this a part of your daily life? You can start first thing in the morning by thanking God for a new opportunity of having a new day, for your gifts and blessings. You can also have a gratitude journal to help you notice the daily blessings. Throughout the day you can have moments to just breathe and be in that feeling of gratitude. Or you can make it a point during your family dinner to say one thing you’re each thankful for. All of these things will invite joy into your life and the life of your loved ones and it will also add the physical and spiritual benefits of being grateful. 

So, If you’ve been feeling stressed and overwhelmed please take a moment to stop what you’re doing, to have a second to just close our eyes and to take a few deep breaths….Just taking a moment to be thankful for this simple ability to take in a breath is all you need to focus on. With each breath that comes into our body we can experience deeper and deeper feelings of gratitude for all that we have and for all that we’ve received from God. We can allow those breaths to strengthen us and to renew and energize our body, our mind and our spirit. Remember, focus on your blessings. You’re in charge of controlling how you feel and what to focus on. Let it be for your benefit and for your inner peace. 

The goal for this week is to be thankful DAILY ☀️When you start feeling stressed take a moment to count your blessings instead. Think about the simple gift of life. The way your body functions, the fact that you’re able to be on this earth today, that you can breathe, be here and present with everything that surrounds you. The more that you focus on those things the more you’ll bring peace into each moment. The more stress will disappear and you’ll be able to feel peaceful, joyful and instead focused on the abundant blessings that God has given you.

St. John 14: 18 says
I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
One of the ways in which we can feel the comfort of God is by expressing gratitude to Him and by being willing to trust in the promise that He will never leave us comfortless. Gratitude will allow us to open our eyes to see more of the blessings that God has given us and in return It will allow us to strengthen our relationship with Him. To trust Him more and to believe in His will and goodness for our lives. 

This will allow us to stop fearing and instead have more faith in Him and in ourselves. And once we’re able to do that we can then help Him to reach out to others in gratitude to testify of His goodness and to be a light and a blessing to those around us. We have to CHOOSE to live from a place of gratitude. This power is truly renewing and it will affect so many areas of our life. 

The benefits of gratitude not only bring health and mental strength into our lives. It also adds confidence in God and in ourselves that will allow us to have a way more joyful, enjoyable and peaceful life. We will be better able to help ourselves and others on our journey, and it will remind us daily of the love of God. The choice is yours, let gratitude be your blessing today. 

Hope that you can make it to class tonight at 7:00PM! Our goal is to release stress, strengthen our Body and renew our Mind and our Spirit through meditation & relaxation. If you feel like you need it, please motivate yourself to be there and to do something good like this for yourself today. It is a gift that will benefit YOU! You’ll leave feeling amazing and you won’t regret it. Plus, we’ll be able to see each other and to renew our energy together. Invite whoever you want & hope to see you there! ❤️🥰

Our spiritual goal for this week is to keep a gratitude journal or to express our gratitude daily and see how we feel after doing that for one week.

Our physical goal is to cut out the sugary drinks and sugary snacks. At least for one week try drinking more water and lowering the sugar intake and see how you feel. It may be hard at first, but proving to yourself that you can keep this promise to yourself will lift your self esteem and remind you that you can make better changes for your health.



Can’t wait to see you in class tonight at 7pm. 🥹🫶🏼

Feeling Overwhelmed? 💛

I love to spend time daily outside meditating. Even if it’s for just a few minutes, I need to slow my mind and re focus. Sometimes those are the best moments when I can feel God speak to my heart and mind. & I truly treasure those moments of inspiration. I felt something come to me as I thought about overwhelm and I wanted to share it with you.

I felt this incredible peace from the Lord letting me know that the feeling of Overwhelm is closely related to fear. Maybe the fear of not knowing what’s gonna happen? The fear of not being able to accomplish all the things, maybe fear of what the world would think, the opinions of others or the fear of feeling less than. Fear and overwhelm are closely connected. I never thought of that!

What I felt is that feeling overwhelmed, is not a feeling that comes from God. We must recognize that the Lord doesn’t speak to us like that. Those feelings of overwhelm come from what we allow our minds to “chatter or yell” at us. Our minds are so power. They can throw all kinds of thought at us . It’s up to us to learn to practice checking our thoughts often. To be able to see them from a distance, to recognize what the thoughts are telling us and to have the strength to help ourselves to move past the negative thoughts into a thought that is more helpful and that aligns with God.

Some of the things we can ask ourselves are.

▫️Do these thoughts feel true to me?

▫️Are they really true?

▫️How do I feel when I think these thoughts

▫️Do I feel better or worse when I think these thoughts?

▫️Can I resolve this problem?

▫️Is this something I can control?

▫️Would God speak to me this way?

▫️Do these thoughts align with the words of God and what He would tell me about myself and my life?

Truly reflecting on our thoughts and our “overwhelm” can help us to recognize that those thoughts and feelings are not what God would tell us. It’s not the way he would speak to us at all.

We can definitely take time to try to solve a problem, to find a solution to what we’re experiencing. But sometimes we can’t find a solution, and all we feel is all kinds of thoughts piling up on us. It’s during these times when we need to recognize that to just take a moment to stop. 🛑 Silence our minds and take a moment to be with God. Step out in nature or do whatever is necessary for us to have a moment to re-charge ourselves. To try to listen to what our Father in Heaven and Savior would tell us.

Turning our focus away from our problems or negative emotions will allow us to process our emotions in the way that God would want us to. Which is by TRUSTING HIM AND LETTING HIM TAKE THESE THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS FROM US. Truly handing it to Him and being willing to follow the inspiration that He speaks to our hearts and minds about what He would want us to do.

Our Father in Heaven & Jesus Christ want us to trust him instead of feeling overwhelmed.

I can’t imagine Jesus walking around the earth feeling stressed and overwhelmed. Instead I can imagine Him feeling centered, peaceful, focused and most importantly trusting and knowing that each hour is spent according to inspiration that the Father would want him to have. Christ trusted in the Father. So, we should try each hour and each day to trust in Christ and in the Father as well. They both LOVE US! that’s why the Savior gave His life for us! They want us to overcome evil with good! Notice how our thoughts can unfortunately become evil. The more we think the thoughts the more negative talk we project the more feelings of overwhelm that we allow the more frustration, anger, anxiety, impatience stress, and all of those negative thoughts take control over us. ALL OF THOSE ARE FEELINGS THAT ARE NOT OF GOD. 🙁

That is why it’s so important for us to check our thoughts to recognize them and to practice doing this. In class we practice calming our mind each week. We practice checking out thoughts and then turning them to God. Why? Because it’s only by practicing that we get better at it. It’s like exercise for our mind 💪🏼💖 The more that we practice, the better we will be able to handle the negative thoughts that try to take over our minds and hearts.

Instead we want to be able to get to a point where we remind ourselves of the type of God that we serve. Of the type of God that we know. To remind ourselves of ALL OF THE TIMES WHERE WE HAVE SEEN HIS HAND IN OUR LIVES. & to trust Him for what He can teach us during the difficult times as well as to trust Him that He will provide abundantly as we turn to look to Him.

Focusing in Christ is the key. This is the scripture that came to my heart when I was thinking about this. “LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED OR “OVERWHELMED” NEITHER LET IT BE AFRAID.” He also tells us in D&C6:36 “Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not.” & Romans 12:2 He tells us, Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

He will guide us on what to do with each hour. He will inspire us to focus on what we can control. On knowing that we can do and overcome all things through Christ who strengthens us. And on setting goals for ourselves that will allow us to overcome whatever may try to come take over our mind or steal our peace.

As we take time daily to stop and quiet our minds we will be better able to recognize the thoughts that are coming. Sometimes we can even write them down to check and see how true they really sound once they’re written down. Being able to check our thoughts is something that God wants us to learn while we’re on this earth. OUR DIVINE SPIRIT CAN GUIDE OUR MIND TO DIVINE THINKING. So, it’s up to us to stop, breathe, spend some quiet time alone and turn our thoughts to God and allow him to bring us the peace that we need.

Remember to let go of overwhelm or whatever thoughts are disrupting your peace. Take a minute for yourself. Breathe through your thoughts of and invite God to bring your peace and a feeling of calm to allow you to feel his light and his love to cover you completely. Trust in your ability to turn away from the thoughts that don’t help you to instead turn then into thoughts that God would want you to have. Live in the moment. Focus on today. Speak good thoughts to your mind. Give yourself word of affirmations and words to remind you that You are a child of God with divine potential and the ability to focus on the thoughts that God would want you to have. God has a perfect plan for you. Trust that He has you in His hands. He will continue to have you, take care of you and provide for you.

Hope that you can join us tonight to release stress, do something amazing for our physical body and also allow ourselves to help our minds find peace and renew our minds to be strong daughters of God. 💪🏼😌💖

Inner Peace Keeper

With everything going on in our world, and the different challenges that we all face, It’s easy to allow the chaos of it all to increase and cause greater emotional stress, fear and anxiety.

We see that not only is our peace affected, but new research has also shown that our levels of addictions or ways to nimble our emotions is also increasing. Have you noticed that the world as a whole is having a harder time controlling their feelings, thought and emotions? Sadly, we all try to look for ways to “numb” the emotional stress that surrounds us.

We resort to food, our phones, TV, shopping, wanting compliments or validation on social media, we obsess over our physical appearance, use entertainment, substances and many other activities that seem harmless at first, but little by little become the ways in which we buffer our emotions.

Can you see how we’re slowly becoming more and more dependent on outside sources to bring us inner peace? Most of the time we don’t even realize how much we’re allowing those things to control our emotional state, or how we’re “numbing the discomforts” of life which little by little dims our inner peace. The world would rather numb the emotions rather than to ever sit in silence with them. We’re all too afraid to sit and feel things.

This week I want to motivate you and encourage you to push past the discomfort & take a deeper look within yourself. Remember that this will most likely not feel comfortable at first and you may be tempted to grab your phone or turn on the TV, or call a friend to gossip or whatever else we try to do to get out of fully sitting for a moment and just feeling.

The goal is to honestly sit quietly if possible in a peaceful place, and just take a moment to breathe and to feel whatever is going inside. Try to take a moment to bring to your attention the things that you honestly know that you use to “numb” your emotional discomfort. Think about what comes up for you. If possible make a list to check those things. Do you reach for your phone or food or something else when you’re uncomfortable or angry, stressed etc? What are the things you reach for first? Do they bring you peace? Or how do you feel afterwards? These are all questions that we rarely ask ourselves. It it’s important to notice what happens to our inner peace. How do we let us be affected and what do we do to “cope” with the discomfort.

Once you’re able to practice this for a moment. Remember that YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PROTECTING YOUR INNER PEACE. The outside sources or circumstances don’t have to affect you unless you allow it to do so. Taking a moment to feel your emotions and recognizing what you’re making things mean to yourself is so important.

So, take a moment to breathe, to check on your emotions and to change them for the better. I’ll share some tips in class about this tonight. Give yourself love, compassion and be proud of your ability to look inward without the need of outside sources to allow you to check in yourself, feel the emotions and clear the internal chaos to RETURN TO PEACE OFTEN.

Set a goal for yourself this week that you will be your inner peace keeper. Try to allow the quiet moments you have to connect to that higher source of peace and love which comes from God, to help you focus on your internal light and peace instead of what the world wants you to focus on. Your ability to practice this will change everything for you and the way in which you view yourself and your ability to retain your peace Internally will increase. The choice is yours.

Remember that God invites each of us to fully place our trust on HIM. He is the prince of peace, who invites our souls to receive true, long lasting and eternal peace.

John 14:27 Says: “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”❤️ 

God wants us to rely on Him so that we may not be troubled or afraid. Whatever is troubling you today, Whatever is bringing you fear or frustration….Take a moment to sit with those feelings and if possible view them from a distance. Recognizing each emotion and how it presents in your body. For example; “This is anger, my chest or throat feel tight..etc” “O want to release this emotion and allow myself to come to calm” invite peace and breathe into those areas until fully calm. Remember also to allow yourself to speak to God as you release those feelings and allow Him to take it from you. He will remove those emotions and replace your thoughts with What a loving God would tell you. Allowing yourself to invite His peace and love to renew you and to recharge your heart and soul. So, trust Him. That is where the greatest peace can come from. Being at peace with God is lasting & strengthening peace for the soul. ❤️

So, set the goal for yourself to NOTICE what you’re using to buffer your emotions. Take some deep breaths appreciating your awareness, and move forward with focus on inviting greater greater inner peace into your mind, heart and soul today. Make time to strengthen your relationship with God who is the Father of PEACE. He will allow you to be filled hour by hour, one day at a time.

Our Spiritual goal this week is: To gain greater inner peace. To be the KEEPER OF OUR PEACE! The PROTECTOR or our peace and to have the wisdom to know where your peace comes from Lean on your ability to invite inner peace and on receiving that from God instead of leaning on anything else.

Our Physical goals is to exercise at least 2-3 times this week and to give our body more water and healthy nutrient rich foods. ❤️

Hope To see you in class tonight at 7pm. Make this promise to yourself to do this for your Body, Mind and Spirit. This will allow you to release stress, strengthen yourself Physically, emotionally and spiritually. We will also practice how to be the keeper of our peace during a peaceful meditation. Hope that you can make it and feel the difference.



The Power Of Your Thoughts

We may feel that we can’t control our thoughts and emotions sometimes. But the more that we practice taking control of what we think and how we react to things the better we will be able to handle life and it’s ups and downs. This week & tonight in class we will talk about how nothing from the outside can affect us internally UNLESS we allow it to do so. It’s all a chain reaction which begins with the events that we experience and the opportunity that we have to CHOOSE our thoughts & how to react to the situations that happen in our lives.

The equation is:


We have the opportunity to choose how we will respond to everything that we experience. It’s always up to us to decide what we allow to enter our minds. Our reaction will determine the outcome which we will experience. That is why we must always ask ourselves; “Do I want a positive outcome from this negativity situation I’m experiencing? How can this situation strengthen me instead of weakening me? What can I do to react in a way that will bring a positive outcome to my life?”

It’s amazing that we have the power to choose to not allow outside sources to control how we feel internally. We often forget that we have that power which we unfortunately give away to others or to outside sources to control us. It’s as if we hand someone else the “control” of our power. We must remember that it’s a gift and our responsibility to be able to choose what to focus on and how to take control of OUR power. We must learn to want to protect the power that we have to CHOOSE and WITH THAT CHOICE BE ABLE TO REACT OR RESPOND TO EVERY SITUATION IN A POSITIVE MANNER. 

We can focus on making our thoughts stronger, using positive affirmations and to helping ourselves remain internally peaceful and less affected by the outside things that we experience. It takes practice, but the more that we’re able to exercise that choice and power to strengthen our thoughts, the happier we will be and the more in control of ourselves we will feel. The power is there! We just have to choose wether we use it to help us positively or negatively in our lives.

We can change our thoughts. We can train our brain to take a new pathway. With practice, our negative thoughts can change into thoughts that are uplifting, edifying and that bring us strength in the moment when we need it most. If we have a hard time with our thoughts or we feel affected by the outside sources or situations that we experience, we can turn to God to ask Him for help. He can make our minds more peaceful, powerful and positive by becoming more centered or focused on coming to Him. He knows what’s in our hearts, He knows our thoughts, our goals and desires. We just have to trust that He will help us. 

He has said;

Yea, I tell thee, that thou mayest know that there is none else save God that knowest thy thoughts and the intents of thy heart. (D&C 6:16)

He knows the things that we want to work on and to do better on. He knows how we feel more than anyone else! He knows how we can overcome our challenges and difficulties. As we’re willing to listen to Him and to follow what He would like us to do, He will help us to be stronger and to focus our minds on being more Positive & capable of choosing what is best for us. Remind yourself daily and even in this very moment. “God loves ME” He wants to help me! I can feel His love I’m all living things around me. I can go to Him and He will be there for me.” It’s in His nature to want to help because He is good, caring and loving. He has a plan and a purpose for each one of us. We just have to remember that this earth is our school for us to learn to choose all kinds of things. 

Most importantly, I believe that God wants us to learn how to manage thoughts or the things that we allow to remain and grow in our mind. Thoughts turn into emotions ➡️feelings ➡️actions and eventually results. If we want to change our results. We must first begin with our thoughts. 

The things we experience in our lives can either teach us and help us or harm us and make us negative and unhappy. The choice is always ours. The more that we’re able to recognize our power of control, the opportunity to choose to remain in control of ourselves. The more willing we become to stop turning to the world for recognition or advice and instead we will become more willing to turn to God. To listen to the feeling that He’s able to place in our hearts & to be more willing to follow and take the action that will be most beneficial to our mind, heart and soul. As we come to God to ask him to help us with our thoughts, we will become more receptive His love, power, peace and guidance for our lives.

Our strength can’t always come from us. We need divine help in our lives more often than we think. As children of God we have access to that help as we search for it and as we’re willing to listen & follow that higher wisdom. God’s goal is to have strong children on this earth who know their potential, value and power as children of God. Children who know that they have access to the help, love and peace that our Father in Heaven is able to provide. Children of God who feel confident in their ability to choose good thoughts, feelings and actions. We can do this! Lets Trust in His love, believe in Him and in what we can do for ourselves with His divine help. Trust in your own internal power to choose the good for your life. Remember that you’re just a thought away from feeling happy, thankful, peaceful and joyful. 

Our spiritual goal for the week is to be aware of our thoughts and our internal power. To not allow outside sources to affect us internally but instead to remember our potential as children of God and who we can become. Be strong and choose the thoughts that will bring the best outcome for your life.

Our physical goal for the week is to remove one bad item from our diet. It can be soda, sugary drinks, fast food, chips or sugary treats. Just choose one or 2 items to remove that can help your health and strengthen your body.

Hope to see you tonight at 7pm to do something amazing for your BODY, MIND & SPIRIT. We will get rid of stress, strengthen ourselves and have an amazing meditation to remind us of our inner power. 

Don’t forget that God will return the good that we do in our lives and our joy will be even greater in knowing that God is pleased with our thoughts, feelings and our actions. Doing these things will only bring peace, happiness and positivity into our lives. you’re not alone, God is with you and will make you stronger! Do your best TODAY. Just focus on ONE DAY AT A TIME. He will help you. He will guide you and be there to comfort you, strengthen you and fill you with His divine love.
