Give Away: 'Let Nothing Disturb You' & Flower Notecards

It's time for another give away here at Welcoming Spirit. Recently, I came across this really lovely and inspiring set of books called "30 Days with a great spiritual teacher." Just as the series suggests, there are thoughts for thirty days total - an opening thought for your day, and a closing prayer. The first book I found was inspired by the teaching of Teresa of Avila, so it's with excitement that I'm putting that same title up for a Give Away!

Here's an excerpt from the book, one of the "As my day begins" thoughts:
The soul that truly loves God
loves all good,
protects all good,
praises all good,
joins itself to good people,
helps and defends them,
and embraces all the virtues.
It loves only what is truly worth loving.

Along with the book, I'm going to create six of my photo notecards for the winner. The winner will just need to let me know what kinds of flowers or colors they like and I'll custom make them a set of six.

Here's a little sampling of some of the cards I've made recently :)









I'm super excited to pay it forward, after having received a great daily wisdom book from Tabitha at I Chose Bliss when I commented on her 200th post. So, thank you Tabitha! She's an amazing woman with a huge heart, so swing by and see what she's doing at A Five Oh Four Uplifting, too. Her mission of sending goody bags to children and adults in need of an uplifting is truly inspiring.

To enter, just comment below. Tell me about how you calm your mind in the midst of the craziness of this world. There's one prize up for grabs, and its the Let Nothing Disturb You book and six photo notecards (which include envelopes). Only one entry per email/blog name/person please. Entries will be accepted until Friday, June 5th at 11:59pm. A winner will be selected using randomizer.org, and I'll post a screenshot to show the winner's number. You do need to give a valid email address or have a blog so I can contact you and find out where to mail your prize. And, the winner will need to have a mailing address in either the US or Canada.

Yay!! A Pay It Forward!! I love it!
I calm myself through meditation and visualization, which works miracles for me. Four years ago I never would have believed I'd be meditating, but here I am and I'm deeply grateful!

Your cards are amazing and I'll be sending positive vibes to the Universe in hopes of a win. :)

Coming in from SITS to say Hi!

Hi there, I'm here from SITS. I love your blog, it's different from the usual blog! :-) I calm myself with a lot of logical self-talk (sounds weird, I know). I just try to see the big picture and be logical about things :-) Your cards are beautiful!

Great giveaway, Paula! I know from first hand experience that your photo cards are gorgeous. I calm my mind by doing yard work. I enjoy the beauty of nature.

Stopping by from SITS. Great giveaway. I listen to classical music when I am stressed. It always helps me!

Thank you everyone for entering the give away. I've just picked a number, so while you may comment on this post, you will no longer be considered for the give away.

Thanks!
Paula
