Mocha Angels 365. Day 22.

Cleaning out, not simply cleaning up, your house helps you think more clearly. Too much stuff weighs you down, body, mind, and spirit. Even the simple act of vacuuming makes my space feel lighter. Yes, I have read Marie Kondo’s books and reviewed her Netflix show, “Tidying Up.” Yes, I’m on board the KonMari Method ™ train headed to Tidyville.

It’s more than that to me. Your house/apartment/rented room is your private retreat from the chaotic outside world. At least it should be. The stuff/things/items (and people) in your home should bring you happiness, joy, and contentment. (Things can also be practical. I don’t love my Phillips head screwdrivers, my toothbrush, or my printer paper. However, I’m glad they are there when I need them.) Getting rid of stuff and people in your house who weigh you down is a good thing. Say “thank you” to your things as you release them. And say “thank you” to the space you are creating for the new in your life.

Mocha Angels 365. Day 16.

When you are creating things that are not so right, you can, at any moment, align with your Creator, step into your Divine Self, and say:

Today, I create a wonderful life. The choice is always yours to make.

God is always giving you an opportunity to create a beautiful life. The typical mantra you hear is “life is hard.” We are here to tell you that it does NOT have to be hard. Divine Order is always at work. Simply step into that order to create the life of your dreams.

We look forward to watching you create a beautiful year.

Mocha Angels 365. Day 10.

From The Art of Mindful Living by Thich Nhat Hanh. Audiobook links are below.

Breathing is the essence of Thich Nhat Hanh’s teachings. The technique in the photo is called “In/Out.” We stop thinking so much when we focus on our breath. We all think too much. Our body is present, but our mind is lost in the past or anxious about the future. The first fourteen minutes of The Art of Mindful Living, Part 1 is about this breath. It’s worth a listen.

Mocha Angels 365. Day 1.

Call people to say how much you love them. Pass on the greatest gift: love. Stepping outside of your comfort zone to bless another is one of the most beautiful things you can do.

Share yourself with your loved ones. You may surprise people with your enthusiasm, which may rub off on them. They may turn around and call someone with radiant enthusiasm too!

Mantra:

I create a chain reaction of love and good feelings today.

Mocha Angels 365. Day 364.

Have quiet time today. Encourage your loved ones to do the same. The Eve before the Eve is a good time to reflect on your year. Do not judge yourself so harshly on what was not accomplished. Life is not a race to the finish line. Life is a series of creations on your part. What do you want to create? If you didn’t like what you created this year, then create a different life next year. You are more powerful than you realize.
