Change your life with positive affirmations

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought.  The mind is everything.  What we think, we become.” – Buddha

“Anybody can do anything.” – Me

I have always believed that anyone can do anything.  Just look at this page …

https://www.rio2016.com/en

… Full of people with physical disabilities (paralympians) using the strength in their mind to channel their bodies.  To name a few super humans, William Bayley (Men’s C7 singles event), Hannah Cockroft (Women’s T34 400m final).

Let’s not forget the super humans, Olympians, Usain Bolt (Worlds fastest runner) and Michael Phelps (speedy swimmer).

We then only have to look at this page … https://recordsetter.com/explore … full of super humans trying to set the record for many crazy things, like setting the most rat traps on a tongue in a minute, this is just so crazy.

The Guinness World Records is another place to find some interesting humans.  http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/ gamers completing two day marathons, longest time holding breath voluntarily underwater whilst suspended upside down and many more.

So I think I have proved my point that anyone can do anything!  If all these people can do these things then what is stopping you from doing what you truly want to do?

To change your life with positive affirmations, you need to create a mindset that will allow change to take place.  In my experience you need to first truly believe in every corner of your heart that YOU can change YOUR life.

Fill your heart with gratitude on a daily basis…. Try reading my post on ‘Gratitude’ by clicking on the link.

… Filling your heart with gratitude makes you feel positive as you are reminding your beautiful brain about all the good in your life.

With you, every cloud has a silver lining’…. something someone said to me the other day.

To be continued…. watch this space…

 

 

 

 

There must be more, there must be a way.

I consider myself to be young even though I may have lived half of my life already.  This blessed Life has taught me many things for which I am truly grateful for.  Growing up, my family were never the type to enforce things on me, I was a girl and all ‘good’ girls behaved in a certain way.  I had rules to follow, so I followed them, never really feeling satisfied, useful or even challenged.  Living a passive life where the female of the species cooked, cleaned, smiled, prayed, didn’t drink alcohol or eat meat and held the family together with a fake mask of strength and togetherness.  Well at the time it all seemed fake.

I just needed to get out there into the big wide world and find another version of me that I was happy living in.  I have searched high and low for me, never being satisfied with what I have, ‘there must be more, there must be a way’.

Add commerce to take away the magic!

If you would like to take-a-way the magic of anything, just add a sparkle of commerce.

A stampede of elephants running for safety, or the struggle of a refugee, a huge tidal wave obliterating all life it thrashes, nature and humanity create their own chaos and money and/or greed had to make things a whole load chaotic.

Is there a way to escape without moving?  I believe, Yes!  It takes 4 simple steps:

  1. Uncross every finger, leg, arm or any other part of the body you can cross.
  2. Close your eyelids.
  3. Transfer your mind onto the miracle of your breath.
  4. Breathe naturally.

Do this for 2 seconds, then if you can… 10 seconds, then even a minute!  Keep practising in any moment you can (except driving or any other task which requires you to do the opposite of any of the above steps) to experience a moment of escape.  It’s free!  The more you do this for the better you will feel.

She is so Brilliant!

In the beginning, there was Marianne.  If you are looking for an inspirational kick start in your new venture into the existence of you, may I suggest you start with the gentle, nurturing, eye opening words from Marianne.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.  We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?  Actually, who are you not to be?  You are a child of God.  Your playing small does not serve the world.  There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.  We are all meant to shine, as children do.  We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.  It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.  And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.  As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

From a Return to Love, by Marianne Williamson.

Swigs Swogs and Gogs ….. Part B

It’s divine, the moment, when you are sitting cross legged, back straight and your head covered with a beautiful piece of sheer fabric.  Eyes gently closed and ears wide open to hear the words of Baba Ji.  The fingers of your hand have gently entwined with the weight settled on top of your crossed legs.

Understanding only one word out of every ten, but yet feeling a part of something, being able to plug in and light up and hopefully transmit to your temporary attachment.


Take a slow deep breath in, hold it for a few seconds and gently blow all the tension, stress and worries out of your body.  It became a familiar phrase and an important coping strategy that gave me a way of escaping into another world, my world. Time does not exist, nor noise, just me, reborn every time.
