Soul Coaching, Days 3-5 (Air)

I blew my commitment to do my back stretches and one chore Thursday evening, but over the weekend I accomplished:

Friday (3) & Saturday (4)-
Semi-organized my working area (dining room) and my supplies in my bedroom
Cleaned living room
Straightened laundry room
Practiced my breathing

I also painted 3 minis (I focused on Autism and Down Syndrome), and had lunch with my Sis, then later we went and saw the new Oz movie.

Saturday (4)- I observed my thoughts and the things around me, I listed my faults and recognized how they were also my virtues, for example my stubbornness is also my determination. Then I listed my core beliefs, the negative and the positive such as: I'm happier single. I adopted this belief about 7 years ago after ending another abusive relationship and vowed, never again.

Sunday (5)- I evaluated the rooms in my home via the checklist questionnaire, and the objects in them using the "energy up/down" exercise and did an inventory of the rooms and areas needing de-cluttering and/or cleaning. My kitchen needed the most attention, so I spent time working on it.

I spent a few minutes outside enjoying the Spring weather and feeling the breeze on my skin and in my hair, the birds chirping, and the trees whispering. What a beautiful Spring day! The sky is clear and a beautiful blue, and the yard is covered in tiny purple flowers, dandelions, and the yarrow is coming back but hasn't bloomed yet; the leaves sure are pretty though. Unfortunately the little purple flowers didn't show up very well in the photo.

Positiv-ity Art

That's how I described my shop this afternoon, Positiv-ity Art because I like to incorporate messages of inspiration and encouragement into my pieces.  My favorite piece is the Inspirational Flowers, but I also have a soft spot for the breast cancer mini.

Oh, and my shop, Keltik's Kreations, it is finally open for business, YAY! If you look at the right column of this blog you will see my gallery, but by all means, pop in my shop and take a looksie :)

Soul Coaching Day 2 (Air)

Affirmation for the Day
"I honor my commitments to myself and to others."

Be even more aware of the Air around you, like the wind/breeze, the movement of trees, etc, the feel of the Air on your body, the clouds as they drift through the sky, and of course, your breathing.

Commit to Take One Empowering Action Daily
Choose one thing to do on a daily basis and make a "covenant" with yourself to keep your word. The author suggests that you write down your commitment and post it somewhere that you can see throughout the day as a reminder. 

These sort of things are challenging to me because I work full time and by the time I get home, I just want to veg LOL and it doesn't help that by that point in my day, I'm usually in pain and having difficulty moving around so I don't want to do anything, except maybe go to bed! 

My commitment is to take a 5-10 minutes each day after getting home, to do back stretches, even though they may hurt. I've got to keep doing these stretches! Babying my back isn't going to make it stronger.

What Are Your Values in Life?
  1. My family: treasure family time, stay in contact
  2. Attitude: counting my blessings and focusing on the Positive, happiness, healing through creativity
  3. Finances: live simply and watch my spending, feeling safe/secure, paying all bills on time
  4. Work/Career: good work ethics
  5. Spirituality: praying, breathing & meditation
  6. Health: eating semi-healthy, practice moderation, do stretches, daily meds
  7. Compassion
  8. Honesty

What Have You Been Putting Off?
  1. Cleaning house- I'm in pain and I'm lazy therefore I put it off
  2. Organizing- my living space is so small; I have no storage and I have stuff everywhere! How do you organize without storage space? LOL  this is a chore I absolutely dread; I automatically feel overwhelmed!
Again, the author says choose one thing to do TODAY to take action regarding the things I have been putting off. Ugh!  LOL  Alright, today I will do the dishes when I get home, and each day following I will do one chore. This makes TWO commitments, not just one. I'm already cringing LOL! I know, I know... I'm awful.

My Daily Commitments: 

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Soul Coaching Day 1 (Air)

Affirmation of the day: 
"My evaluation of myself is not who I am."

Today's Exercises: 
Take deep breaths throughout the day, visualizing life force energy filling my lungs and body.

The book recommends two journals (1) a process journal, and (2) a joy journal, but being as I didn't make it to the store last night to buy my notebooks, I will begin here.

Assessing Your Life

Process Journal: Where I am right now (health, finances, career, creativity, spirituality) and my intention for the next 28 days.

Health-wise: I'm in a lot of lower back pain, and frustrated at the pain and my current physical limitations, and it's effecting my sleep. It's hard to sleep when you are hurting so bad that every move is torture; I am fighting off depression; I struggle with insomnia; my shoulders and upper back are so tense the muscles are burning; my COPD is mostly controlled.
Financially: I struggle from week to week and worry about the near future.
Career-wise: I work full time and love what I do; I am blessed.
Creativity: my creativity it's flowing like crazy! I began another painting last night (a set of two 7x14 canvases) and I'm real excited with the way it's turning out.
Spirituality: Although I still have faith, my spiritual life has declined. My main focus has been fighting off depression and recovering from the loss of my Mom. I actually turned to my artwork to help with the healing process, and it has done wonders. I am incorporating encouraging spiritual messages into my work and I believe this is also a big plus :)

My intention for the next 28 days: to take time in between work and art to focus on soul work, enjoy the journey, and in the process grow spiritually by connecting with my soul, and to joyfully experience increased flow of Positive in my life! I welcome positive change.

Steps and Leaps & Bridging the Breach

Assessing where I am currently at and where I want to be and determine the steps I need to take in order to bridge that gap: one step, two steps, a hop, or a giant leap; notice the areas where the rift is the greatest.

  • Health-wise- a giant leap! Honestly, I have tried everything and don't know what it is going to take to heal my back. I do the recommended stretches, but it only makes it worse. I've been to the doctor, twice, and she just tells me to do my stretches. I take over the counter anti-inflammatory/pain medication, as well as prescription muscle relaxes and pain medication. I've done (still doing) heat and cold. Any activity triggers episodes of long painful crippling pain and sharp stabbing pain. I'm so frustrated!
  • Self-esteem- a hop. My self-esteem has been a work in progress for years, and I've come a loooong way, and I will continue to improve.
  • Resentment/Bitterness- a gargantuan leap. It has been my choice to hang on to the resentment as a shield for self protection and I realize it is not the healthy choice, but I feel safe in holding onto it; it prevents me from taking further risks with my heart, which in turn prevents further heartbreak, and honestly, I'm not ready to release it yet.
  • Putting others first over my own needs- a hop. I've gotten much better in this area, but I recognize that I could use some more work here.
  • Worry/frustration- a giant leap. I continue to worry about finances; let's face it, these times are scary times! I am am frustrated with  20 yr old who, although he does work part-time, lacks the motivation to find full-time employment to help with the household expenses; some days I am borderline panicked. How do I not worry?  I do use positive affirmations to combat my fears, worries, and frustrations though, so I'm working on it.
  • Fear- gigantic leap. as mentioned above, I have fear pertaining to heartbreak, finances, and sometimes my health.
  • Self motivation- a hop, or two. Depending on the task, I tend to either procrastinate, start and not finish, or I complete the task LOL. In the case of household chores, bleck... I procrastinate big time! When it comes to paying bills, etc... I'm on it!
  • Creativity- I'm on target :)
  • Joy/enthusiasm- a few steps. I fluctuate depending on the situation LOL. I tend to be mostly happy but I am prone to depression.
  • Forgiveness- giant leap. In the case of past relationships, I hold on to the hurt and resentment for protection and motivation to never trust my heart or a man again, and like I said, I'm not ready to release this yet.
  • Peace/Contentment- it comes and goes, so I'm going to say a few steps, to a hop LOL

Assessing Your Physical Environment and Life Questions

Oh good, Yes or No questions LOL

Bedroom: 3/5  Yes

  • I feel safe, protected, and nourished in my bedroom. Y
  • My bedroom is a haven for my soul. Y
  • My dreams are insightful and provide a passageway to my inner realms. N
  • The clothes in my closet reflect who I am and who I desire to become. (um, desire to become? Really? How do clothes reflect your desire of who you want to become????)  N
  • I truly relax and feel safe in my bedroom. Y
  • I sleep well in my bedroom, and when I wake up in the morning I am refreshed. N
  • All of the objects in my bedroom contribute to my joy and balance. N (my room is currently a mess)
Kitchen: 1/4 Yes
  • I feel energized, healthy, and vital in my kitchen. N
  • Food prepped in my kitchen looks and feels healthy and empowering. N (it's good, but not empowering LOL)
  • My soul feels nourished in my kitchen. N (not a kitchen/cooking person)
  • I feel creative and get inspired when I prepare food. Y 
Bathroom: 3/4 Yes
  • The energy in my bathroom feels cleansing and healing. Y 
  • The bathroom is a place where I purify and renew myself. Y
  • I feel comfortable and safe. Y
  • When I look in the mirror, I feel good with what I see. N (self image thing)

Living Room 5/6 Yes

  • My living room is a safe haven for me. Y
  • I love to use al of the objects in this room. Y
  • Friends and family feel great when they are here. IDK
  • My living room is clutter free. Y (mostly)
  • It feels warm and inviting. Y
  • Everything in this room is positive. Y

Dining Room 1/2 Yes

  • It is a pleasant place to eat. Y
  • I cherish and support my body by eating food that empowers my body and spirit. N

General Home 4/6 Yes
  • The front entrance is welcoming and easily accessible. Y
  • I feel energized every time I enter my home. N (sometimes but not always)
  • My home is clean and well cared for. N (not at the moment, but usually)
  • My plants and animals are healthy and cared for. Y (no plants though)
  • The photos in my home are photos of people I love and cherish and who love and cherish me. Y
  • There are very few things that I "put up with" in my home. Y
If my home was an exterior representative of me and my life, what would it say about me?  Ok, firstly, I rent and the place could be prettier as far as exterior paint, etc LOL, it's a boring dull beige and lacks personality of any kind. It doesn't represent me at all, other than it set apart from the road and surrounding apartments. I am a recluse, so that particular description fits. As for the exterior, I will pretend... if it were up to me, it would be white with forest green trim and shutters, green roof tiles, a repaired front patio, and better landscaping, with a concrete or paved parking area vs. the current dirt. The yard currently needs raking, so it could use some cleaning up. It would represent a simple, quiet, recluse...that's me :)

Good gracious, this is long!

My Automobile- I'll keep this short and simple. My truck is currently down and I can't afford to get it fixed, so it is neglected at the moment, and no I do not feel safe in it because it needs work. I am using a loner from my Sis. Yes, I play uplifting music while in it... Rock or Pop

My Work- I love it! I sometimes feel inspired and creative, I do "put up with" some people. I do sometimes feel stressed. The office is a old log cabin that has issues, but it's charming. I often learn something new. I do feel appreciated by my boss, and I feel like I fit in with my co-workers (we have fun).

Life Questions
Where am I currently? See above answers in my process journal.
What does my life purpose seem to be?  To accept life and find peace with it, and to help others do the same.
What would I like my life purpose to be?  I'm pretty satisfied with my previous answer.
What am I passionate about? Equality, honesty, my art work, my family, fighting depression, and nature.
What gives me immense joy? My family, my art work, the beauty and peace of nature.
What is my spiritual source? The Divine
Is my life consistent with my values? Yes
How do other people see me? I've been told I'm strong, loving, artistic, and compassionate.
How do I see myself? An easy-going recluse, loving, compassionate, too generous, artistic, and lazy.
What qualities would I use to describe who I am now? honest, compassionate, sensitive, lazy, artistic, helpful, semi-handy, disorganized, spontaneous.
What qualities would I like to have? I would love to be a bit O.C.D. LOL
What have I been putting off? cleaning and organizing
What do I need to forgive myself and others for? I need to forgive myself for the hurt I caused my family as a child and and unhealthy adult stage. I was not in a healthy frame of mind and made dumb mistakes and hurt others with my behavior. I need to recognize that was the past and I am no longer that person. I need to forgive past relationships (husband/boyfriends) for their abuse and infidelity  they too were not in a healthy frame of mind too set on satisfying their need and wants and too selfish, insecure, and dealing with their own life issues. Is it truly fair to continue to judge them, when knowing that I was once messed up too?
What do I want to do with the remainder of my life? I would love to travel to Ireland, keep moving forward in my pursuit of self-improvement, be in the position to help my family when needed, to spend more time with my family, maybe take a class or two at the community college. 
What is really important to me? My family, financial security, semi-decent health, and to be pain free would be nice!
What are my goals? Just to live simply, the best that I can, and to survive at least semi-comfortably. I'm a simple person; I don't want anything extravagant. 
Have I been blessed with any skills/gifts, and what are they? My artistic ability, and sensitivity.
Am I using these skills? Yes

WHEW! Done :)

A Soul Journey

On March 27 I am embarking on a new journey, a soul journey with Lyn Thurman at, using the book Soul Coaching, 28 Days to Discover Your Authentic Self by Denise Linn. Soul Coaching is a four week program dedicated to connecting with your soul through a cleansing of your mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects of your life using Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. This cleansing will clear out old blockages enabling you to connect to your soul to better hear and receive soul messages! Doesn't that sound awesome?

I'm excited about this new venture and want to share my experience here at Positive Warfare, for this project IS positive warfare and I am expecting wonderful things.

Life is Best to Those Enjoying It

I have been so busy between work and painting that I have not been posting. Of course, being that my son has taken over my computer, makes it difficult too LOL 

Have you ever noticed that when you are in a good mood or doing something you enjoy, life is good, and when we are disgruntled or depressed, life pretty much sucks? Does it not make sense then, that if we change our way of thinking and make it a point to appreciate the little things, we are welcoming joy? I don't know about you, but I want more joy in my life!

 Think about it!  
Now, with that in mind... my new favorite saying is: 

Love Life
Life will Love you back

Testimony: focusing on the positive works!

I am currently a walking breathing testimony that when you focus on the Light in your life, you attract more Light.  Through turning towards my artwork, I have been putting all my focus into creating something positive, and guess what! I am feeling loads better! At least emotionally (I am still struggling with back pain), but hey, that's a HUGE plus! My depression is lifting; all the Positive is scaring the gloomies away J

Little Reminders

Sometimes when life gets us down we need little reminders to help us to take a moment and count our blessings, and to focus on the good in our lives, so when I saw this beautiful jpg image, I thought to myself:
"Perfect! I've got to share this!"  

So today, remember to step outside, take a minute to look up into the sky, breathe the fresh air, take in the sounds of the birds singing, the sun on your face, any nature that might be around you, and just appreciate the little things. Sometimes those little things are the amazing things :)

My First Mixed Media Project

Arts and crafts are great therapy, and I've always enjoyed them.  It's fun, it's relaxing, it feels good, it gives you a sense of accomplishment, and it's a great escape :)  My medium of choice for artwork is either plain old #2 pencil, or watercolor, but when it comes to crafting... anything goes!

In an earlier post I mentioned that I wanted to make a mixed media painting; well, I finally did it, although I didn't use my affirmation as I originally planned, I'm pretty happy with it as my very first mixed media piece.

I began painting a sunflower in watercolor (I usually don't paint flowers because I'm usually disappointed in the outcome LOL), and progressed into painting the background. I got the texture in the center of the sunflower by sprinkling table salt onto the wet paint. I continued with watercolors, slowly adding more color and detail in between drying times, then I started added some scrapbook paper with Mod Podge, and then used a stencil with metallic acrylic paint to add some flare, some lace, ribbon, buttons, stickers, letters/words, and then I painted a dragonfly (my first one ever).

Because I had never painted a dragonfly before, I was too chicken to paint it directly onto the canvas, so I cheated a bit. I painted it on watercolor paper instead, then cut it out and mod podged in place. I was skeptical of my dragonfly ability LOL, but I'm pretty pleased with how he turned out.
the dragonfly :)

 (1) the finished product (2) a close up of some of the details (3) and another close up :)

In various places are the words: joy (upper left corner), courage (left edge), Love Life (above sunflower), and strength (inside the sunflower's center), and of course my signature (botton right), which I had a bit of an issue with so it's a bit sloppy, darn it. Oh well... with time I will improve.

I may not have used my affirmation, but I did throw some positive words in. These particular words were chosen with my current depression in mind. I wanted it to be a reminder to be strong, have courage, choose happy, and love life. Now... where am I going to hang it? I think I know just the spot :)

The Fight

Tonight I want to take a break from my usual positive-type post and write about the struggle and the signs.  I try to stay positive and blog things to reinforce Positive in my life and my thoughts; that's what Positive Warfare is all about, but lately it's gotten really hard. My posts may come across as cheerful, hopeful, or maybe even easy, but the truth is that fighting depression is not easy, but what choice does a person have... wallow in it and let it get worse, letting yourself drown in it? Or fight it every step of the way, even if it seems like it's an uphill battle?  
I say... 
F I G H T!
So I fight, 
and claw, and slip 
I slide down the slippery slope, 
grasping desperately to climb back up 
only to slip again
and again

I have struggled with depression since childhood. I have what they call Reoccurring Chronic Depression that I have learned to fight, and yes I do win...eventually, but it does take time and work. The trick is to keep trying, no matter how much you want to throw in the towel. 

Life goes on, and so must you!

But in mid December I was slammed face first into a wall that I am having difficulty overcoming. Right before Christmas we had to take Mom off of life support. I was the main decision maker as her Power of Attorney  but we all agreed to abide by Mom's wishes, so basically it was a family decision (a decision which she spoke of many times for the past 6-7 years as well as including it in her Will). It was the hardest decision I have ever had to make, and I hope I never ever have to make a decision like that again! 

I know it was what she wanted, and it was the right thing to do, and I was actually doing ok... until her birthday came along in February and gave me another whammy; I never recovered from it. I just can't shake it, and it's tearing me apart! I can't even describe the heartache and the loss that I feel, and the guilt, even knowing it was what she wanted. I replay that day over and over like a broken record, and I go back and forth arguing with myself that we did the right thing, but my heart and my brain are just not on the same page. 

Here it is approaching mid March, and I have finally broke down and decided to get help. It's gone beyond what I can deal with by myself; its caused severe insomnia, anxiety, and mood swings, and back pain... and yes they are all interconnected. It's time for help, and oh, do I hate the idea, but I recognize the warning signs.      

I went to my doctor who diagnosed me with severe depression, anxiety, and surprise surprise... high blood sugar (a new thing for me). The Doc thinks the high blood pressure is the result of the depression and anxiety and it will go away once the others are treated. She wrote me a prescription for an antidepressant/anti-anxiety, and something for high blood pressure, as well as recommended that I see a counselor. 

I was a good patient and got both filled and began my new regime, however it became very obvious very quickly that the antidepressant was going to be a no-go. Nothing unusual there, my body does not respond well to antidepressants. I tried it through the weekend, but there is no way in hell that I can take this medication and work... I was a doped up zombie, listless, weak, I was even uncomfortable attempting to drive, and I had began having problems breathing (a listed side effect). So I stopped the anti-depressant BUT I made an appointment with a counselor for later this week. Yay, me. 

Do you know the warning signs of severe depression; are you able to recognize when you need help?
Prolonged periods of a combination of the below listed symptoms, which nothing seems to help and may even seem to be worsening rather than improving:
Sadness or Unhappiness, Easily Irritated or Frustrated, Loss of Interest, Insomnia or Excessive Sleeping (or both), Changes in Appetite, Agitation/Restlessness, Slowed Thinking or Movements, Indecision, Distract-ability  Decreased Concentration, Forgetfulness,  Fatigue, Worthlessness, Guilt, fixated on the past, frequent thoughts of death or suicide, Crying Spells for no apparent reason, Physical Pain (headaches, back pain, etc). 

And with all that being said, I leave you with this...
Depression can turn very serious, very quick.
Don't risk it, get help!

Nourishing Thoughts

What thoughts have been occupying your mind lately?  Have you been entertaining the "poor me's" or have you been focusing more on the good points of your day? Are you grumbling about budget cuts, and poor weather, or are you counting your blessings?

What kind of seeds are you planting in your garden of well being? Do you really want to harvest the rotten fruits of your negative mind? Take a few minutes each day to give thanks for the good things in your life:

Sure there are budget cuts, but what are the benefits of your workplace: paid holidays, health insurance, good co-workers, paid lunch? Did you laugh today? Do you have a paycheck this week? 

Sure the weather has taken a turn and there will be snow rather than sunshine, but look how beautiful the snowy landscape is! Listen to the peaceful silence. Smell the fresh crispness! There is beauty in every day, just look around you.



and make today a 
GOOD day!

Focus on the Good

Today (Saturday) was a low energy, yecky, blah day. Ever have those days where you feel like all your energy has been siphoned away... yeah that was today, but it is nearing it's end, and ... enough of this blah-ness! I will not allow myself to fall backwards, so I've decided to do something about it NOW. I need some cheering up! I choose HAPPY! I am going through my Pinterest boards while burning some Egyptian Musk incense, and it smells wonderful! Aromatherapy via incense! :)

I AM Happy. I have EVERYTHING I need. I willingly open my heart and my arms and receive all the Good that Life has to offer.  Tonight  I will sleep restfully and peacefully. My body will heal and re-energize as I sleep, so that tomorrow, I will feel Great and full of energy. I will wake up ready to face the day and I will be grateful. Tomorrow will be a wonderful day!

Some humor to make you smile :)

It is normal to have bad days and ho-hum days, but don't let these days bring up old negative ways of thinking. Beating yourself (or life) up keeps you stuck. When you find yourself mumbling insults at yourself (or other people, etc) stop! Instead, reverse your thinking! Find something positive to say instead. Build yourself up, and find something positive to recognize about the person or situation. Here's an affirmation for that:

"I enjoy new ways of thinking. I focus my thoughts and my 
words only on the Good, and in so doing I receive only Good in return."

Arms open, ready to receive!


Essential Oils for Depression and Anxiety

I briefly touched on aromatherapy in a previous post, and I thought I would expand on essential oils a bit more.  Essential oil usage can be as simple as being used on a cotton ball, in an aromatic pendent necklace, a satchel, candles, in the bath, 1-2 drops added to your shampoo and conditioner while showering, in a compress... or you can make your own combination of essential oil blend to be worn or used on the skin.

Blends for topical usage must be used with a carrier oil. Carrier oils are used to dilute essential oils to make them safe for topical application and help protect against skin irritations.

Essential oils are broken up in three categories: Top Note, Middle Note, and Base Note. The recommended blend for depression is the Balancing blend, however I have listed other combinations you might want to try:

2 drops Top Note, 5 drops Middle Note, 3 drops Base Note.  
8 drops Top Note, 1 drop Middle Note, 1 drop Base Note. 
1 drop Top Note, 6 drops Middle Note, 3 drops Base Note
5 drops Top Note, 4 drops Middle Note, 1 drop Base Note

Top Note                                                                    

Grapefruit, Lemongrass, Orange, Basil, Bergamot                                                                      

Middle Note 

Aniseed, Rose, Geranium, Lavender, Marjoram                                          

Base Note

Clove, Neroli, Cinnamon, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Frankincense, Ylang Ylang

Carrier Oils

Corn, Jojoba, Sesame, Coconut, Safflower,  Grape Seed, Sunflower, Apricot, Olive, Rose Hip,  Wheatgerm, Soy, Avocado,  Sweet Almond (not to be confused with bitter almond, which is toxic) Peanut, Passion Fruit  Hazelnut, Macadamia, and Calendula.

How Much?
For the average adult= 10-12 drops of essential oil to every 1 ounce of carrier oil
For children, elders or pregnant women= 5-6 drops essential oil  to every 1 ounce of carrier oil

All oils should be stored in dark tinted bottles (amber or colbalt) with tight caps, and kept in a cool dark place for a longer lifespan. Carrier oils will go rancid after time, whereas essential oils do not.                                                                                                      


(1) Do not use the following if you are pregnant, and/or have sensitive skin, and/ or epilepsy:
Aniseed, Orange, Cinnamon, Rose, Geranium, Marjoram, Ylang Ylang.

The Truth... you deserve all good

There is a truth deep inside of you
that has been waiting for you
to discover it, and that Truth is:

You deserve ALL good things
life has to offer.
You know that, because you
feel awful when you are experiencing
the lack of good things.
All good things ARE your birthright!
You are the creator of YOU, and
the law of attraction is your
magnificent tool to create whatever
you want in your life.

~The Secret by Rhonda Byrne~
