“Oh, how I love thee. Let me count the ways.”

Hello BLOOM Followers!

I’m beyond honored to be sharing tips, tricks, and tools I’ve picked up along the way to empowered living.  It’s been an exciting voyage of  highs and  lows, as you can imagine. I’m just like everybody else.  Really, I’m nobody special, but I do have quite a few skills that support an extra-special, extra-ordinary life, and I’m thrilled to share them with you.  

As I look at my own accomplishments, I’m floored at how far I’ve come. Being an author of four books, a teacher of impeccable self-care, and a mentor of personal development for deeper meaning and practical spirituality, each day, I pinch myself as I wake up to this reality.

How do you wake up?  Are you grateful for what you already have? Are you living the life you dream of?  If not, don’t worry.  I promise you, there’s still time.

A favorite saying of mine is, “The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago.  The second best time is now.” Today is your best time to begin living a life you love.  And here’s how.

As most of my students can tell you, we create a magical vision board, learn meditation tools and practice grateful living in a steady daily practice.

It sounds very simple.  With practice it’s the foundation and the springboard of the greatest happiness you can imagine.

But if I was to give you only ONE piece of advice today, it would be to INCREASE YOUR LOVE VIBRATION.

There’s no fast magic pill.  There is, however, clarity, steadiness, and positive, loving truth.  Anything else is just chatter.

Everyone goes at their own pace.  You set your pace.  The wisdom of your body, mind, and spirit are looking for alignment in order to fuel and propel you into your mission and purpose.  So, slow down in order to begin.

Where do you find love?

I’ll let you in on a little secret… it’s only found inside of you.

You are the creator, the giver and the receiver of Love.  And when you connect with this part of you, you’re unstoppable.

In honor of this special month focused on Love, here’s your homework.

Count the ways!  When you wake up in the morning, set your mind on counting the best things about you.

Start looking at yourself with loving eyes and giving yourself the real honest loving truth.  Right this very instant.

If you are serious about upping your vibration and attracting the Love that you seek, look for it right here and now, within yourself.

Write it out.  Writing it down amplifies 10-times the power of love.  Write it and own it.  Ten things you love about you.  Do it every day!

In the field of physics, science shows that what you send out returns to you.  Like a beam of light.  It travels out and reflects back to you.   Let your Love energy shine out from you and watch and see it return to you in loving ways. Don’t be surprised when you discover this newer, lighter, happier, even more loving version of yourself.

Don’t worry.  There’s plenty.  Spread the love.

I want your feedback. Tell me how you do.  I have a treasure trove of tools just waiting for you to discover more on the path to ease and inner peace.   So, please, don’t be shy.  Ask questions so everyone can learn.  Join my mailing list at www.valsgift.com  or reach me directly at omvalerie@gmail.com .

With Love ~ Valerie
