Right now someone is thinking of you and smiling.

Even as I type these words certain people have popped into my mind and a smile has spread across my face- some of these people would I hope know that they have that effect on me but others may not- They may not even know me or have met me just a few times- but everyone has the capacity to make an impact and to bring a smile to someone’s face. We are often oblivious to how we matter to others.

One of the things that I think as humans we fall victim to is believing our thoughts and generally the above thought is not one that pops up regularly enough. More likely we have thoughts that totally contradict this one.

But just pay attention to what happens to your posture and the feeling in your body when you believe this thought– the thought that right now at this exact moment – someone is thinking of you so fondly that they are smiling.

Your smiling now too you right? – Your heart feels fuller you may even have straightened up a little.

Okay so let’s take it another stage further- right now I want you to think of a few people one by one that you like or love – don’t overthink it – just allow people’s faces to come to mind and see what happens to your posture – to your face. It’s that smile again isn’t it? I’m smiling at the thought of you all smiling. What a wonderful circle of joy we have just created.

Just by choosing to believe this beautiful thought which I know to be true – we have all instantly raised our vibration. In that increased vibration our body is lighter – our minds are less cluttered, we feel better about who we are – we are closer to the truth of who we are.

We are more important to people than we can ever know – we are loved and cherished- we are admired and respected- we are thought of as funny or clever- kind or compassionate. We are much more liked than our inner critic would ever have us believe.


We are never alone – we are surrounded by love from those on this earth and those not.


Lean into this thought for another few moments – Right now someone is thinking of you and smiling


This means you matter – this means you are loved – this means you being here has had an impact for good. This means you have been seen. Continue to hold that high vibrational thought close to your heart all day and when you can take a few moments to send out the healing power of that high vibrational thought to people in your life.

Maybe even send a text – drop them a note or send them an email. Don’t underestimate the beauty of sharing this with others- and don’t be surprised if you hear from some of them in the next wee while because our vibrational thoughts have reach. People feel what we are thinking- so if you love someone focus on what you love about them – focus on their smile and how it makes you feel and they will feel it from you.

Smiling as I think of you dear barefoot reader.

With so much love until tomorrow.
