Dear Wellness Seekers,

Friday Wellness Tip: Create Wonderful Life Today, Why Wait for Christmas? 

To experience the power of now – live in the present moment. The present moment is the most powerful moment of all. It is the only time I can breathe, connect with my body, and feel alive. It is when I am fully present that I can be self-aware and consciously choose how I will behave in nay situation. When my mind is distracted and jumps to concern myself with the future, I may experience fear or worry unnecessarily. Or I may build expectations that can not be realized or disappoint me. Or more troublesome still is that I may react to unexpected stimulus in a way that has a negative impact on the people I care about.

Spanista Friday Wellness Tip Exercise:

The idea is replace emotional fears or needs with mindfulness. Stop what ever you are doing and close your eyes with me. Let’s do this exercise together. Imagine a black board in your mind – ask your self what you are currently feeling and take chalk in hand. Print out the word or phrase. Study it for a moment. Then take na imaginary eraser and wipe it away.

Now print ‘It’s A Wonderful Life Now!’ on the board. Ask for divine inspiration to help visualize the many wonders in your life – list them. Now I breathe in, gently think of the word “in.” As I breathe out, I softly say to myself, “out.” I repeat this cycle for several minutes, and any mind disturbances dissolve.

My gentle breathing relaxes my inner dwelling. I am alive in my breath, I am at ease in my heart. I don’t need to go anywhere else to find peace. Quiet and calm, I experience the peaceful power of the present moment in my body.

At the center of my being is an all-–knowing guide. The divine source with in us contains the ideas and answers I need to create a wonderful life. You actually already have it but are not fully aware of what it is. The job for each of us is to design that life and call on the wisdom of divine guidance to create it in the physical world in this very moment. I do not have to wait for the joys of Christmas – I can live them right now.

With Ritualistic practice of a Spanista, I cherish my capacity to receive inspiration from Spirit, to create and use the power of my thoughts, words, and actions to manifest my good in the world.

After all, why wait until Christmas when you can have that feeling in the current moment.

We deserve to have A Wonderful Life Now!

“It’s A Wonderful Life” is a Turner Classic Movie favorite that runs often this time of year. Or you can get the DVD on It features Jimmy Stewart,  that holds so many heartfelt lessons about life. It is life itself that is what is the most precious gift of all and what we do with it matters very much to those who cross our paths. Live joyfully in the moment and you will have a positive effect on so many.

May Your Self Care Journey To Joy Be Merry & Bright,
