I am unmoved by appearances Affirmation – Florence Scovel-Shinn

Namaste dear Well Wishers,

Artwork The Crown by Sri Devi Affirmation based on the work of Florence Scovel-Shinn

This above affirmation has been helpful when things don’t seem to be working out the way I would like, or as quickly as I would have thought.  The above wording has been tweaked for my own use, the original goes like this:

“I now exercise my fearless faith in three ways:  by thinking, speaking and acting.  I am unmoved by appearances, therefore appearances move.”

Instead of filling our mind with fear based thoughts, keeping the mind pond serene allows other possibilities to flow to us instead, like the perfect ones Divine Intelligence has ready for us.

Try it out, the next time you were expecting something to happen and it hasn’t yet, show your fearless faith that you are unmoved by appearances, and let the appearances move.  Come back and share the details, success stories are so welcome and inspiring to us all!

Here’s some more encouragement in our goals:

Go and be the brightest version of yourself yet!

Kind regards,
Sri Devi ॐ

Happiness Affirmation – Florence Scovel-Shinn

Namaste dear Well Wishers,

Artwork by Sri Devi entitled Joy

Universal Intelligence knows our heart’s desires.  The affirmations in this series are all built on Faith that if we can maintain our poise and calm, not stirring the serene mind pond with drama (that is likely not even our own), solutions that we could never have imagined will come to our aid in perfect and harmonious ways.

It’s a good reminder to Let Go and Let God.  Florence Scovel-Shinn had a clever re-wording of a question to ask her clients, not “What is wrong?” – rather “Who is wrong with you?”.  She then recommended a solid dose of forgiveness and gratitude towards the who.

It goes back to today’s Affirmation, by keeping our poise, God knows our heart’s desires, and staying unmoved by appearances to receive the answer, uncovers new roads directly leading us to prosperous ways.

Wishing abundant joy in all your heart’s desires.

Blessings always, all ways.
Sri Devi ॐ

Alternatively, the artwork Joy is worked in to a Heart to Art Greeting Card to wish someone well in their new job.  It’s inspiration came four years ago when my job of twelve years gifted me with the opportunity to find a new position in the teaching field.  Happily, it did result in an upgrade in many ways, and allows the gifts received in my previous position to blossom and flourish.

And to circle back, this Faith card was inspired from a visit to Krishnamurti‘s garden during a trip to California ten years ago.  It brings great joy knowing that people from around the world send this card out.  I am grateful for the comfort it provides the recipients, knowing that they are not alone in their situation. As my loved one frequently says, not Alone, rather, All One (typed at 3:33 pm – nice numerology!).

The Wisdom of Florence Scovel-Shinn

Namaste dear Well Wishers,

Greeting Card by Sri Devi for Heart to Art Cards

For the next while, as inspiration and time permits, the Well Wishers Group will be sharing some affirmations I’ve been enjoying working with from Florence Scovel-Shinn.  Not being a name familiar to me, I came across it while taking a look at Jen Sincero‘s recommended reading list.  The name stood out and I’m glad that I explored her books.

Since growing our intuition provides a treasure trove of information to aid us in our quest to become the best version of ourselves, the above affirmation, I reckon, is a good place to start.

In an e-mail today from a friend, she mentioned about having put on weight but feeling that it was providing her with protection.  This affirmation came to mind as I was reading her words, and I think that a fine-tuned intuition provides us with divine protection and this is a goal worthy of pursuing.  I happened to send this affirmation to her, and now I’m inspired to send it out to you.

May our intuition grow in leaps and bounds, so that our direct line to Divine guidance is consistently a strong and clear connection.

Blessings always, all ways.
Sri Devi ॐ

New Moon in Pisces Greeting Card by Sri Devi for Heart to Art

Some of the main themes and qualities that Pisces New Moon energy brings and examples of wishes to make can be found here.

Here are some ideas on How to Make New Moon Wishes Part 1, and Part 2.

If you feel inspired, please feel free to share how you invite New Moon energy into your heart and home by leaving a comment with this post.  We could learn from each other by sharing our own experiences.

An interesting tip from reading April Elliott Kent’s wonderful book called Practical Astrology concerns another factor to consider when writing our New Moon wishes, it’s the placement of the New Moon in our birth chart.

For example, this New Moon is at 8˚ Pisces 12′.  This will be positioned in one of the twelves houses of our birth charts and it represents an area in our life that is ready to receive our New Moon wishes.

Depending on the placement some of our wishes could be based on the themes listed below:

1st and 7th Houses:  personal improvement and better relationships.
2nd and 8th Houses:  improved financial conditions.
3rd and 9th Houses: better communication, travel, visitors, knowledge and insight.
4th and 10th Houses:  an improved living situation or career success.
5th and 11th Houses:  creative inspiration, friendships, fun.
6th and 12th Houses:  good health, peace and enlightenment.

If you don’t have a birth chart dear Well Wisher that can be easily remedied!  Just go to Astrodienst’s website www.astro.com.  You will need your birth date, birth place and time of birth.

As we make our wishes this New Moon in Pisces and as new insights arise in the upcoming month, may all y(our) heartfelt dreams come true!

Sunday Blessings through Heart to Art Ocean Life

Namaste dear Well Wishers,
Happy Sunday!

This week, as I sit here with iced jasmine tea, I am reminded of the fact we live in a predominantly Portuguese area, by the non-stop vibrations of a car parade of merrymaking fans celebrating Portugal’s victory at the Euro Cup today.

With slightly less fanfare, but equal pride, I welcome you to the twentieth piece in the Heart to Art collection entitled Ocean Life.

Sell Art Online

Ocean Life artwork was created by Sri Devi with loving thoughts of a water-sign friend in beautiful ocean life colours and movement under the surface.  A meditation on Friendship sending waves of love to the recipients.

Blessings always, all ways!
In Om and Prem,
Sri Devi ॐ
