Monday Mantra 121 – There is sunshine in my soul today

There is sunshine in my soul today positive joy quote Monday Mantra 121  via LaWhimsy“There is sunshine in my soul today.”~ LaWhimsy

Some days are simply sunshine days. Days when your soul declares that no matter what is going on, it’s filled with a glowing bright sunshiny joy that radiates forth in all its glory. Sometimes it’s a quieter sort of glow, other days it’s obnoxious in it’s blinding delight. It’s a truly wondrous thing, since it tends to fly in the face of the seemingly mundane sort of lethargically dull pessimism that drifts about and settles into life like particles of dust. Instead of seeing the sparkly motes as they dance and float in the sunlight that streams in the window, those who ignore the sunshine in their souls only see allergens, mess and annoyances. Who wants to live and think like that? I’d much rather be considered a bit loony because I am joyful and beaming my sunshine out into the world than nitpick and complain. I won’t drag others down into a low-vibe state, instead I’ll glow onward in my high-vibe state of being and if others wish to join in I’ll greet them with smiles and share the rays of my sunshine. Would you care to sunbathe your soul along with me?

Word Nerd: Melomania

Word Nerd Header Apr 2016 via LaWhimsymelomania definition Word Nerd via LaWhimsyMelomania is essentially describing someone who has a mania for melody or music. Melomania certainly has it’s obsessive extremes, however, I think that most people have a certain fondness for music. Music, melodies, tones, sounds, each of these has the ability to touch us and move us to our very core. Music reaches into us, plays upon our very souls, and brings about emotional and cognitive responses that can surprise, elate, terrify and amaze us. It can be quite a heady and dramatic experience, hence melomania. Music has the unique ability to bridge human and spiritual experiences and it’s no small wonder that one can develop melomania to one degree or another.

Melomania is one form of mania that I feel can have a positive side, and though silence may be golden, melodies can invoke uniquely beautiful soul responses all their own.

Namaste ~ Ella

Monday Mantra 120 – As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.

As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live Johann Wolfgang von Goethe quote Monday Mantra 120 via LaWhimsy“As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.”~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

You are an incredible being, did you know that? You are filled with all the power you could possibly need and you have the ability to gain access to all of the wisdom, insight, knowledge, and love that will make this life journey of yours amazing. You simply have to trust yourself. Trust that you are here for a reason, for a purpose. Trust that you will not only fulfill this purpose, you will go beyond even your own wildest expectations. While it’s true that you are infinitesimal in the great, grand, glorious scale of things, you are still important, still capable of fantastic and spectacular things. You simply have to trust yourself and trust that the Universe has your back. Maybe you can’t always quite figure that out in a human mentality sense, but it’s very much the truth. There is a reason, a purpose, a destiny, no matter what it may be, for you in this beautiful, multi-faceted thing called life. And it’s a truly breathtaking and phenomenal one. Trust yourself – You’ve got this.
