Monday Mantra 155 – Be a kind human

Be a kind human Ella quote Monday Mantra via LaWhimsyBe a kind human.” ~ LaWhimsy

Be a kind human. Such simple words combined into such a simplistic statement. But, oh, what a glorious, soul-changing, world shifting statement it is. Be a kind human. Just think about it. If we all were to just do our best to be kind – to ourselves, to other humans, to animals, to the planet, how extraordinary would the results be?! It’s awe inspiring to contemplate how divine the energies of the world would be if everyone was just a kind human. Being kind doesn’t mean you are perfect. In fact, by stating that you are a kind human you are implying that you acknowledge your flaws and that you are doing your best. When you are being a kind human you are sharing with the world a friendly, generous, sympathetic, warm-hearted nature and attitude. Who truly doesn’t want to feel that way and be treated that way? It’s also almost depressing to think that kindness is something so many ignore or think they don’t have time or energy for. No time to be kind? No energy to exert kindness? It’s ridiculous. If one just starts by being kind to themselves, the kindness would begin to grow and become as natural as breathing. It’s also terrible that many equate kindness with weakness, when kindness is a strength, no ifs, ands or buts about it. So I urge everyone to Be A Kind Human. It will change your life, life of every single other human you meet, and the world you live in. Just see if it doesn’t!

Word Nerd: Orenda

Word Nerd Header Apr 2016 via LaWhimsyorenda definition Word Nerd via LaWhimsyOrenda is is an Iroquois Indian belief of a spiritual power inherent in people and their environment. Orenda is present, in varying degrees, in all animate and inanimate natural objects as a transmissible spiritual energy capable of being exerted according to the will of its possessor. Orenda is the spiritual force of nature and orenda is the spiritual force by which human accomplishment is attained or accounted for. With orenda one is empowered and able to affect the world around them in positive ways. Orenda is supernatural, divine, extraordinary, and inherent – it’s the power within us (and all living things).

orenda vision digital art collage by Ella of LaWhimsy Pulsing all around us /within our soul the same /this power that consumes us /drives and guides our aim. / Orenda, divine and natural / Orenda, magical and sane / the vibrational energies that feed our heart and brain. /Without this supernatural essence /what would be our gain? / Without this energetic fusion / how would we remain? /Orenda gives us meaning / a power to effect / a way to weave the world with love as well as honor and protect. ~ Ella

I find orenda to be a word that rings true in  my heart and it’s a power I fully believe in and can sense in myself, others, and in nature. How about you?

Namaste ~ Ella

Monday Mantra 154 – You must become unshakable in the belief that you are worthy of a big life

You must become unshakable in the belief that you are worthy of a big life. Kristin Lohr quote Monday Mantra 154 via LaWhimsyYou must become unshakable in the belief that you are worthy of a big life.” ~ Kristin Lohr

Your thoughts have an energy to them that cannot be denied. Your thoughts are what create and make up the foundation of your very being. They are the building blocks of your life and the essence of every action you take for good or for ill. With this kind of power you have the ability to live your life on your terms – no it won’t always go to plan or how you want it or even how you think it should be, however, it can always go in a positive, empowering way. How? By your thoughts. The thing is, if you become unshakable in the belief that you are worthy of a big, positive, joyful life, well then that is exactly what you will have. If you choose instead to believe the world is against you or you can never be happy or fulfilled, that’s what you will get. Beliefs are, at their core, what drive us and create us. The more you base your thoughts and beliefs in the positive, the affirming, the gracious, the self-loving and the self-caring, the more unshakable you will become in acknowledging and believing that you are worthy of a big, loving, beautiful, fulfilling, joyful life. You are worthy of it exactly as you are right now, you have only to believe. Yes, negative thoughts may creep in or even flood in, but if you acknowledge them as such and don’t allow them to fester then they will begin to lose their power and the positive thoughts will gain strength. You can do it, you have it in you to believe in yourself and your worthiness. You are worthy of a big life. Of a bright life. Of a loving life. Of a peaceful life. Of a life overflowing with soul enriching goodness. Yes, You Are ~ Start believing and you really can achieve anything!
