Quotation Inspiration for #HAWMC

This post is part of my 2012 WEGO Health #HAWMC Health Activist Writer's Month Challenge.  Today's prompt ~ Quotation Inspiration. Find a quote that inspires you (either positively or negatively) and free write about it for 15 minutes.

The quote/affirmation that inspires me comes from Shakti Gawain. "Everything is unfolding perfectly." The simple and complex statement is a favorite quotation of mine.  What touches me most about this quote is the idea that when there seems to be no logic or sense to what is happening in my life, no matter what happens, there is a plan and the journey is one to be enjoyed.

When I was first diagnosed with Lupus, it was Louise Hay's "You Can Heal Your Life" that helped me realize that attitude plays an important and vital part in the path of your life, in my case the path is living with Lupus.  I find it incredibly powerful to know that Louise Hay is online and still active in the Wellness community.  Find Louise at and on Twitter @LouiseHay.

As a student at San Francisco State University, I "found" (or discovered) the work of Shakti Gawain!  Her book, "Creative Visualization" is (and has been for over 25 years) an international best seller.  It was while reading Shakti's book "Living in the Light" that I recognized the power of intention and positive self-talk would be essential tools in helping me create my life with Lupus.  "Everything is unfolding perfectly."  The quote captures the prospect of optimism that despite the bumps along the road of life, in the long run we have the power to create and control the life we want.  

It was a magical day when I stopped into The Booksmith on Haight Street in San Francisco and found "Reflections in the Light" Shakti Gawain's book of affirmations.  Each day of the year has a "thought for the day" and affirmation to help guide the reader towards the joy that is right in front of them.  I, for one, often find myself needing the gentle reminder (or "nudge") that Shakti's words provide.  Whether it is "Everything is unfolding perfectly." or another of Shakti's inspiring statements of empowerment, I find comfort, hope and strength from the pages of her books. 

If you are inspired by the quote and want to discover more about Shakti's work, I suggest you explore her website and follow her on Twitter @ShaktiGawainOne ~ I wish you well and hope that you realize no matter how difficult the circumstances may seem, that "Everything is Unfolding Perfectly."

In happiness and hope,
