One of my favorite things to do is collect quotes.  Last Saturday in our afternoon class we had our envisioning workshop where we cut out pictures from magazines that were things we wanted to bring into our lives.  We pasted them in a journal that we could look at each day.  I love pictures and quotes and reminders of what is truly important in our lives.  To elevate our consciousness it begins on focusing within and drawing to oneself the beautiful things of the world.  Beautiful thoughts, beautiful people and beautiful surroundings.  Beauty is all around us, but if we don’t have peace we can’t see the beauty.  If we focus on the negative people in our lives we miss out on seeing the beautiful ones that are brought to us.  As I teach each week, I see all the beautiful faces that surround me and it makes me feel so fulfilled that they are a part of my life.  Each week as I hear their stories written and shared in class I feel humbled that I am a part of their beautiful story.

Today in your writing examine the three wisdom quotes below and think on each one and work on shining your inner light, work on releasing the negative and focus on the positive.
