Secrets

It’s taken me two years to post this. I kept it in draft all this time ignoring it. I now feel it’s a safe space among us bloggers and readers to post. There is nothing to hide.

I was standing at a bus stop holding my face up to the sun thinking about current relations in my life when suddenly I realized just how many events and experiences in my life have been kept a secret! How many relationships held a secret in one way or another. I was standing there just floored by the sudden thought… the pattern just never occurred to me.

Especially men, my fathers violence towards my mother, my suppressed marriage, my first new relationship after ending a 16 year marriage, and finally my new found love and discovering his addiction to alcohol that regrettably took his life 15 years ago.

Secrets kept are not healthy, when secrets are held within they will begin to simmer, then boil and gradually overflow or explode and thats when it becomes dangerous. There is resentment, grudges and hateful feelings not only to the significant other you are keeping the secret about but to your precious self as well. There will be damage. It’s destructive. You can’t stay boxed in holding on to the secret, because to suppress your feelings and not let your feelings be told only turns negative itself and creates a weakness. One way or another you will be affected. The positive side to this cause and effect is if you catch it in time you can rebel and reveal the truth, reconcile in time before there is too much damage done. You can break away from the solitude, it won’t be easy, their will be challenges but in the long run you will be set free!

Set yourself free!

I’m unlocking one more secret….after all secrets of love is not meant to be hidden only celebrated. I have to make a choice. I’m beginning to feel the freedom.

I am strong, I can do this.

I’m here.

What is a Vision Board

What does a Vision Board workshop look like?

To dream is a right, to vision is your right.

The 1st hour we will get together in a friendly, safe, respectful atmosphere and share our aspirations, dreams. family values and our passions. Once we collectively brainstormed and let go to dare to dream, our creative energy will begin to power through! The 2nd hour will involve actively cutting, creating, drawing and or writing out our dreams and aspirations with the tools of beautiful images and photos, slogans, powerful words and craft items such as stickers and miscellaneous artsy supplies. Together in the 3rd hour we will accomplish an empowering piece of work as we assemble them in the order of our likeness, in whatever way or fashion to take home so that it may remind us of our vision. The intentions is to strengthen communication and share a mutual outcome for ourselves and family. In the final hour we will share our findings, our insights and visions with each other for closure. We will walk away feeling the universe has just received our command and begin to feel ready to receive!

Best of all, there will be a sense of completion, this feeling will stir you in the right direction.

Get ready, You will be inspired!

My Mantra

I am powerful, I am peace, I am patient, I am healthy, I make a difference, I am grateful, I trust in you, I trust in me, I choose love, I am love, I am happy.

Thank you for today’s opportunities,

Thank you for this day about to begin and provide me with new and higher insights.

Create your mantra, write it, snip it, glue it, post it so you can look at it daily. May it remind you of want you want, desire, deserve and trust.

Since I made this last vision board for myself, many life changes have happened. I’m now planning my next one. Each time I create, it opens more paths for me to follow or pursue or contemplate. It’s not always an easy road to my new ventures and endeavours but certainly humbling.

Each time I create I feel more and more significant and believe I have a mission to follow my vocation and contribute to helping people and lead myself and others to develop a better world, a better life.

Each vision board I create I wake up to a new perspective. This is the spiritual growth I anticipate. I know now and convinced the universe does have my back! (Thank you Gabriel Bernstein for your recent book). I’m moving forward now with higher insights. A new vision board in the making! A shift is about to happen!

May you feel the universe tug at your spirit and discover your peace and path to enlightenment.

Love eva

Goal Settings

What’s your goal?

Do you have a one year plan, a two or five year plan? Do you know what you want to accomplish today, by the end of the week or month, year?

Creating a vision or an image to focus on is helpful. The vision of your choice reminds you of what you want, what you desire and all your must do. It’s not about materialism, it is about dreams and dreams feel good because they do come true. We want to feel good don’t we? You have every right to your dreams. You have the right to be happy! Believe it!

Do you love someone and want to sustain your love for each other? Do you want realistic windows of opportunities for a better life for you, for your family and future?

What does your vision look like? What colors do you see? What surrounds your vision and who is there? Which words would you use, what do the words mean to you? Do they speak to you, is it meaningful?

It makes you smile, right?

Set your goals, take the time, it’s your time. Collect your images and words and colours. Because not only is it’s your time… it’s your personal vision and only your life to cultivate. Nurture it!

You will be surprised at what comes together.

The photos are of a recent community group. We really didn’t have very much time for our boards but the sharing was beautiful. I encouraged to take their boards home and continue building on it if they felt the need to do so.

Each person shared their passion with stars in their eyes and energy and I can see before my very eyes their power come alive! Let your light shine!

A Dream It Was

Your Sunset

A dream it was…or maybe not

For I was sure….at least…I thought?

Do not despair shall have no fear, this dream of love is truly dear.

It will not fade, it will not run, this love abides, itself the sun!

Deep down within I realize, my love for you so grand a size!

I must be off to tell thou so ” I love you dear! …oh god, please no.

Indeed it was a dream I feared, for now I wake…you’ve disappeared….

By eva aboud

1982 in memory of a friend reunited 26 years later… may you rest in peace.

Thank you for helping me believe in my own power.

I will never give up from believing in the manifestations of good.

You are not Forgotten

You are in my heart mind and soul, you have not gone unforgotten, I carry your memory with me everyday, I think of you always, you were courageous, a soldier, a hero and a messenger to all of us connected to you. I remember you, I remember All of you.

It’s a good memory.

I will continue the fight, for your endeavours live within me and I will do my best to make the world a better place.

Thank you for being in my life. Thank you All for being my friend,

You are not forgotten. Not ever. Not one of you.

Eleven Eleven

img_3544-e1528697712140.jpg

11:11

Each time I see the number eleven eleven on a clock, watch or mobile phone something clicks or shifts at that very moment for me, it feels like some sort of a mystical sync has just taken place.

I imagine the universe made up of this complex machinist like engine, orchestrating our existence in an unimaginable profound way and it navigates reason to an unknown realm or dimension that perpetuates our day to day, minute to minute, second to second livelihood.

It’s loaded with karma and learning lessons, cause and effect and it activates the now, the future and potentially alters the past.

A Devine master plan creating this ripple or dominoes effect yet forever changing, ongoing and unlimited….connecting our spirits to the next now, the next moment constantly shifting.

I wonder if every 12 hours when eleven eleven strikes has any significance to manifesting our thoughts, dreams and desires?

Eleven Eleven… a spiritual, significant and ancient philosophy contemplated through out time.

It’s 11:11, did you feel that?

The Future

Something special about today….felt strong and energized and empowered!

I came across this message and knew right away the power within can indeed manifest change. I feel Change coming on! A dream about to manifest!

How this came about? A quest for justice from the people I connected with today gave me a new inquiry into my spirit and provided an opportunity to re-link to my higher self. The connection provoked a deep contemplation about the innate power of mankind; more so, the power of women and our strength when we work together.

It’s that link that drives me to be better, to inquire, to dig deep and ask myself what more can I do?

What I can do is manifest my dreams to make positive change. Encourage others to the same.

I feel the change, and it starts with me.

My Vision For You

It took me longer than expected to find the words to reflect the value of my work. I wanted it to be as authentic as possible with images and phrases snipped out of magazine that resonates my desires and passion for you to reach a place of awakening.

At one point I overwhelmed myself with snips and I chuckled over my enthusiastic intent to say and deliver the many empowering messages. I did discover however that there was more that met my eye as I searched for those  messages because the activity itself guided me to a realm that impacted me profoundly. I became fixated on an energy that lifted me like a wave and came to a definite conclusion that my life’s work has just begun.

There is more for me to do and offer and grow from and I just can’t wait to discover it all. I am grateful to the stars for guiding me to a place of anticipation and excitement.

I wish the same for you.

Vision Board in the making

img_3054-1

Here I go, getting ready for another Vision Board Workshop

While I gather my supplies together at my kitchen table, I decided to update my own vision board. Yes, I will make one for myself to share with you, one that is more meaningful to me at this point of my life. A refresher!

My Vision……

First I list my values:  what is important to me, what moves me, inspires me? What am I passionate about?  What and who do I love and care about?

I value the strength of my family, the honor of witnessing the growth of a soul in my children, my loyal friends and my long lasting neighbours. I value my work and community; building capacity with families and newcomers.  I value our environment and securing it for a better future. I value you, my readers and hoping my words and insights can help and guide you in some way to a better, hopeful and stronger tomorrow.

I am passionate about empowering women from ages 1 to 100 and I care, truly care about peoples feelings and providing a glimmer of inner strength and power that awaits to be recognized and take hold of. My vision and dreams is to facilitate to the community, empowering vision workshops. This dream fulfills me and drives me to work harder.

But first, I got to get busy-lets see what happens.

Stay tuned!

Eva
