How to Access the Power of Gratitude

Accessing The Power Of Gratitude

The practice of gratitude as a tool for creating happiness has been mainstream for years. Long-term studies support the effectiveness  and benefits of gratitude practice suggesting that a positive, appreciative attitude contributes to greater success in work, greater health, peak performance in sports and business, a higher sense of well-being, and a faster rate of recovery from surgery. The power of a gratitude practice is substantial.

But while we may acknowledge gratitude’s many benefits, its practice can be difficult to sustain. So many of us are trained to notice what is broken, undone or lacking in our lives. And for gratitude to meet its full healing potential, it needs to become more than just an empty word that is tossed around occasionally. We have to learn a new way of looking at things, a new habit, a whole new outlook on our life. And that can take some time.

That’s why practicing gratitude makes so much sense. When we

practice giving thanks for all we have, instead of complaining about what we lack, we redefining lovegive ourselves the chance to see all of life as an opportunity and a blessing.

Remember that gratitude isn’t a blindly optimistic approach in which the bad things in life are whitewashed or ignored. It’s more a matter of where we put our focus and attention. Pain and injustice exist in this world, but when we focus on the gifts of life, we gain a feeling of well-being. Gratitude balances us and gives us hope.

There are many things to be grateful for: colourful autumn leaves, legs that walk, friends who listen and really hear, chocolate, fresh eggs, warm cosy jackets, ripe tomatoes, clean air, the ability to read, roses, our health, butterflies. What’s on your list?

Some Ways to Practice Gratitude

  • Keep a gratitude journal in which you list things for which you are thankful. You can make daily, weekly or monthly lists. Greater frequency may be better for creating a new habit, but just keeping that journal where you can see it will remind you to think in a grateful way. It helps you to look past the problem in a situation to find the blessing in everything, even if that blessing is a difficult lesson.
  • Make a gratitude collage by drawing or pasting pictures of things for which you are grateful
  • Practice gratitude around the dinner table or make it part of your night time routine
  • Make a game of finding the hidden blessing in a challenging situation
  • When you feel like complaining, make a gratitude list instead. You may be amazed by how much better you feel
  • Notice how gratitude is impacting your life. Write about it, sing about it, express thanks for gratitude
  • Give at least one compliment daily. It can be directed to a person or you could invite someone to share your appreciation of something else – such as “I love how beautiful the autumn leaves are, don’t you?”
  • When you find yourself in a difficult situation instead of getting angry or fearful ask yourself, What can I learn here? How can I grow from this experience? What is there here that I might later look back on and be grateful for?
  • When you’re in a situation that creates negative feelings within you, search for something positive you can focus on instead. For example, instead of “it’s cold and dreary this morning” think of “the fresh crisp morning air clears my head so I can focus better”

How To Access The Power Of Gratitude As your practice develops, an inner shift begins to occur, and you may be delighted to discover how content and hopeful you are feeling. That sense of fulfillment is gratitude at work.

Become The Creator Of Your Dreams

WE CAN CREATE OUR OWN DESTINY AND DREAMS.

You are the divine creation on this earth. You have been given all the power to live the life of your dreams.

Living your dreams is not a coincidence, its a process to align your mind and soul with your action to go on the journey until you reach your destination.  Sounds easy doesn’t it, and it is, if you set your mind to it.

On this journey of life, you will find joy and sorrow, you will find support and obstacles, and you will have achieved success and failure. past can hurt changeBut every time you find happiness or success you will feel great. Most of the time when you come face to face with adversity, you want to run away or blame others for the same, but that is not how to do it, is it?  But you still want to run away, don’t you?

Many people make their parents, partner, family, friends, employer and society responsible, for their failures. While doing so, they don’t take ownership and dump it on someone else. This may give you a moment of satisfaction, that you are not responsible for your failure and that you think someone else is. But is that true satisfaction?  How long does it last?  There are people who spend their lifetime making other people responsible for every misadventure in their lives and project themselves as a victim of destiny.

I am sure that you know at least one person like this or have met one somewhere in your life, would you agree?

If you are doing the same, whether you blame others or situations for all the failures in your life or even just some of them, I have one question for you: “Is it giving you the happiness and the success you desire?”

I bet the answer is NO.

Still, many people do it and it becomes such a habit, that they just keep telling the story of their misery to others again and again.  which just reinstates that ‘negative’ lifestyle for them, one of misery.  Beginning to see the pattern here yet?  Its a cicle of “woe is me….”

IF YOU HAVE EVEN THE TINIEST OF DESIRE TO LIVE WITH HAPPINESS AND SUCCESS THEN YOU MUST TAKE OWNERSHIP AND RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR LIFE. BY EVEN JUST TAKING 100% RESPONSIBILITY FOR EVEN JUST 1% FAILURE IN YOUR LIFE, WILL START TO SHIFT THINGS FOR THE BETER.

blaming othersYou must be thinking “why should I take responsibility for others misdeeds, right?” They are to blame, not me…

Every situation and every person you have in your life are what you have attracted to you. Sometimes you do it consciously and sometimes, unconsciously. But the true transformation happens through your actions, be it possitive or negative.

When you truely understand that you are living like a magnet in this Universe and the Law of Attraction is sending you everythingyou are asking for, you will start to understand that you ARE the Creator of your Dreams….

While taking ownership of all your failure, you may feel like a loser who has made all the mistakes to create this misery, but that’s not the wisdom that I want you to remember.

When I ask you to take 100% responsibility for your life, I want you to see the true wisdom of life and that is:

WHEN YOU ACCEPT THAT YOU ARE THE CREATOR OF YOUR PAIN, MISERY AND FAILURE THEN, AND ONLY THEN, CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE THE ONLY CREATOR OF YOUR SUCCESS, HAPPINESS, AND ABUNDANCE.

By you making others responsible for your failure then unconsciously you wait for their permission and actions to make you happy and successful also.  You are GIVING others permission to ‘control’ your feelings and emotions.  Is this what you want?

Hey, I want to OWN my FEELINGS and EMOTIONS, they are mine!

But when the shift happens and you take 100% responsibility for even just 1% of your failure or mistakes, that’s when you know that you are the 100% creator of your dreams and happiness.  This is when you will truely begin to LIVE life to its fullest…

Now is the time when you stop blaming others and situations, but resolve to start a journey of your own. Now is the time when you must take yourself to a level where you know that you are thearchitect of your dreams.

Manifestation

Take 100% control of your life and become the creator of your dreams.

Once you are living your life where you are in control, you will be amazed at how everything you dream of, starts to manifest and happen.  Little signs will appear guiding you, people will come into your life to teach you lessons or to give you guidance that you need but are not even aware off.  This is when life truely is amazing.  Embrace this life if you are not already doing so.

Live a life of gratitude.  If you wish to find out how to do this, please read my blog on how to “Access the Power of Gratitude” here.

Become one with yourself like yin and yang…   Become one with the universe and grow to your fullest potential.

Yours in love and light

How to Release Attachments to Past Relationships

How to Release Attachments to Past Relationships

We’ve all carried baggage from past relationships at one time or another. Whether it’s from a past love, friendship or even a family member, we carry the baggage from these relationships with us. And it can affect everything we do. Everything.

The problem isn’t actually the baggage itself but how we allow the baggage to define us.  Can we figure out who we are independent of the baggage or has the baggage created who we are?

If the baggage is defining who we are, then we owe to ourselves to release its hold over us. “Just let it go,” they say. But just letting it go is much more difficult task than it sounds. Letting go of something we have been carrying around with us for awhile isn’t something that happens overnight. But it is possible.

Here are some ways to help us begin the process of releasing the hold our baggage has on our lives, the decisions we make and our existing relationships.

HOW TO RELEASE ATTACHMENTS TO PAST RELATIONSHIPS

BE WILLING TO RELEASE THE ATTACHMENT

Why we hold onto baggage is different for everyone. We might use it to shield us from future hurt, we might use it to help propel us into action, or maybe to allow us to feel certain emotions and we might use it to keep us from moving forward.  Any action motivated by the baggage we hold onto is not serving us.

We often want to release the baggage, when in some way it is giving us something we think we need.  We know it isn’t healthy but on some level we keep justifying holding onto it to ourselves. Letting go of the baggage is hard and doesn’t happen overnight, but we have to start with the affirmation that it is what we need to do.

JOURNAL

Relationship BaggageWe should start writing down our thoughts, beliefs and the behaviors that affect our mood. Be honest and just write anything that comes to mind. Create a judgment-free zone where we are able to be real with ourselves. As we continue to write, we will start to notice patterns and triggers. Triggers that we can begin to recognize and change.

Even question in your journal how a behaviour serves you.  If it does not serve you then you know immediately that it is a behaviour that you need to change or let go of.

CHALLENGE THE STORY

We write our life’s story from our perspective. If the story is not contributing positively to our current reality, it is up to us to challenge it. Our story is from our point of view, as it should be. But to begin to let go of the baggage, it is helpful take a step outside of our story and write it from another perspective. Another perspective helps us to release the overwhelming emotion we feel and can help us break the hold it has on us.

FIND THE POSITIVE

Every relationship serves a purpose in our lives, even the bad ones. Our goal should be to find something positive that will help us reframe how we look at the relationship.

Maybe the relationship helped define acceptable behaviors, maybe it helped us become stronger and more resilient, maybe it helped us become more grateful for small moments. We can only begin to let go once we stop focusing on the bad and shift our focus to the silver lining, however small.

The simple thinks like a raindrop sitting on a leaf glimmering in the light, is something to be grateful for and that helps shift our thoughts and mood to one of positivity.  The small little things in life.

TREAT OTHERS WITH KINDNESS

It is easy to treat kind people with kindness but make it a goal to treat everyone with kindness – even those less deserving. This shifts our focus from past bad behaviors to future good ones. When we stop letting the bad behaviors of past relationships determine our future actions, we can begin to let go.

Only by letting go of the bad behaviors do we make room for the new and more serving behaviors.

Negative energy takes a toll on your body. Swap for a grateful heart. Starting each morning with an appreciation or affirming thought puts you a step closer to happy. Swap for practicing forgiveness. Purposefully letting go of the anger and bitterness towards those who have hurt you as well as yourself frees you from the past and resets your heart to love again

VISUALIZE YOUR OWN VERSION OF HAPPY

As we begin to separate ourselves from the baggage it is important to visualize what our happiness without it looks like.

How do we feel and act in our relationships with others. How does our time alone make us feel? How do we make decisions without the baggage as an influence?

Once we have a clear vision of what life is like without our dependence on our baggage, it is easier to make choices with that future in mind.

RELEASE EXPECTATIONS

As we begin to act independent of our baggage, it is important to move forward with expectations. It is our expectations that will keep us tied the Relationship Baggagebehaviors of our past relationships. We often times have expectations, some of which are unrealistic, without even realizing it. That is why journaling is so important. You will become aware of when the baggage is creeping in.

It’s okay to be a little weary of the process. We harbor a great deal of emotion and it can be painful to get through it. If we continue to hold on to it without facing it, it will affect everything we do.  Don’t wait until there is a risk of losing something wonderful to release the baggage.
All of these changes, will assisst you in making a shift from where you are to where you want to be.

Goal Setting | Setting Goals

GOAL SETTING

If you want to achieve anything in life, you have to have a plan to help you get to the end result => your goal!  Goals need to be realistic and attainable so don’t set them too high to start with but put the same energy into them.

Our“consciousness” is the key to wealth, as you achieve one goal, you then set a new higher goal and you keep stretching yourself, growing and learning what consciousness is,goal setting a lifestyle.  You need to connect through you subconsciousness to make that your true consciousness.  I will not go any deeper into this at this point as that is a whole set of training all on its own.   

Believing and telling yourself that there is always enough money for me to live and maintain the lifestyle I desire and have, we ensure that you get it.  As mentioned above there, is more involved to it than this, there is a language you need to understand to bring this about effectively, but this is the jist of how easy it is for us to attain things in our lives.   

Live by design 

We need to design our live through Goal Visualisation, Imagination and Planning. This is where goal setting comes into it.

Goal setting steps :

  1. List what you would like to have and what you would like to be in the next 30 years.
  2. List everything, small and large, places you want to visit, things you want to have experienced, residences ~ dream home, partners, charities that you want to support, people to meet, clothing, new car, list at least 100 things. Now for each goal that you wrote down, write down the reasons why you wrote them down.  The reasons will empower you and give you the passion to achieve your goals.
  3. Get pictures from brochures on magazines, cut them out and stick them in your goal journal.  Refer to it twice-daily, make a collage and put up above your desk (that is where mine is) anything that you can remind yourself of what it is your goals are, and what you wanting to achieve.  Refer to it at least twice a day and envisage the people that you want to have around you when you’re experiencing what it is that you’re visualising in your journal or from your collage.
  4. Read your list and look at your photographs and pictures daily and imagine yourself there, feel it, feel that the heat of the sun if you’re looking at a picture of the beach, feel the crispness of the air if you are snowboarding or snow skiing. Feel the crunch of the snow below your feet, feel the sand on your toes from the beach, smell the food that you looking at to eat and taste it.  Make it as real for you as you possibly can and your mind will begin to believe that’s what you doing now. 
  5. Every day do something small to move you closer to your goals act with purpose and genuine desire don’t ‘hope’, this will happen, “hope” will not get you there, you have to believe in it. You had to have a purpose and you have to be convinced that it’s actually happening now, which is why bringing in all your feelings is so good.   Let me help you through the process, click here now! 
  6. Do everything that you think about for your goals, with gratitude.  Think, speak and act with gratitude.  Be grateful that you already have what you desire as they are already by universal law ~ yours.Make things happen 
  7. Enjoy your fruits.  Enjoy and celebrate your goals when they become a reality. No matter how small celebrate them and make them real for you. Make sure that your journal is portable if you’re using one, write in it every day. Also write your problems down, your sufferings and your feelings, these all help you move to becoming more positive. Write down good ideas and inspirations when you get them especially shortly after meditation waking up in the morning just write everything in your journal. If you don’t have a journal with your photographs, Just journal at your desk where you can see and visualise your collage while you’re writing down your thoughts.

My final advice on what will be, always right in the present tense I am, I am not, eg: I am going to bed.  Co-incidences will start to happen and they will take you along the way, guide you on the path that you will need to take to achieve your success.

Enjoy the journey you never know which direction its coming from!

Please remember, you need to do your goal setting!

Poverty Consciousness | What is Poverty | Get out of Debt

Do you live in a world of poverty consciousness?

Have you ever wondered how poverty consciousness or poverty is created and what you can do to step out of it?

Do you live every day with the fear and the knowledge that you are ‘broke’ and that you won’t have money to pay your bills? Or, do you let it all go and live in the now having the faith that it’ll just take care of itself.

Sometimes it happens that we become overly entangled in the material world and get wrapped up in feeling that we always need more money. This idea of lacking money sends toxic stress chemicals to the brain causing the body to fight or flee for its life.

Debt Causes Toxic Stress

Anytime we repetitively feel that there is not enough of “this or that”, it forms a chemical rut of impoverished thinking in our body-mind which depletes our energy, manifesting vibration, and financial outlook on life. Every time this lacking feeling is regurgitated it creates mini “poverty attacks in the inner world, which eventually manifest into physically lacking finances on the outer world.

The good news is that this entrapped cyclical experience is only here to give you an experience of what you don’t want, so that you are inspired to one day become clearer on what you really DO want! The enlightening secret is that this pattern is easily shifted by simply refocusing your awareness OFF of neediness and ON to feelings of gratitude and appreciation. 

“We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make our world.” ~Buddha

When you put your attention on feelings of acceptance and gratitude for what you do have, you start sending positive expansive feeling based chemicals directly into your brain which are felt throughout your body.

The more frequently these “appreciation chemicals” are produced, the happier you become and the higher your manifesting vibration grows. This vibrational inner shift causes you to physically attract that higher paying job, a huge contract, that wealthy client who loves you, or a sizeable check from that special person in the outer world.

Even though your financial situation may be struggling, impoverished, or absolutely bleak for years, it really does not matter. You can instantly shift into the experience of feeling more abundant and start manifesting abundance! Simply refocus your attention for 24 hours on deep feelings of appreciation and gratitude. Choose to focus on ANYTHING that you can authentically feel deep gratitude for. We live in an abundant conscious Universe. With patience, you will soon begin to see these physical manifestations of abundance come your way.
We need to actively use our past to improve our present the present is the moment of the past, there is no future there is only the now. Click here to join me and let me help you achieve your life change.

Sponsoring thoughts come from our subconscious is when you’re hungry for something internally and a subconscious that’s what drives are fought and to be aware of an correct response and forwards to be positive and not negative otherwise we’ll bring into your life is negativity

As most of our lives make us become what we think about most of the day ensure that your thoughts are conscious and deliberate and that you make sure that there positive and driving in the direction of where your goals are that’s how you will achieve your goals

Did we want to be in the mind first live it, feel it in your mind first, and then you will achieve it

The Bible tells us “Ask and it shall be given”, “Seek and you shall find”.

If you have a desire that is really burning that you want to achieve then you must ‘WILL‘ it to come into manifestation you attend it wholeheartedly, clearly focused, and with certainty to pass this content onto the source and whichever way you know how

Clearing Debt suggestion

Consistent gratitude is the easy track to ending poverty internally and externally. When your abundance is measured by how deeply you FEEL abundant and how often you visit this feeling, then your experience of being rich is truly unstoppable. This is the most direct path to financially magnetizing massive abundance to you in the outer world.

If you are currently living in a mindset of poverty consciousness only you can change that into one of financial abundance so in ending I wish you all the best in living behind your poverty consciousness and moving into a wealth of abundance must your mind control is what happens to you so be mindful of that, think it and believe it, live it daily achieving financial abundance will then come to you!poverty conscious

Go deeper inside. Explore what is beneath those old paradigms that make you struggle more, work harder (and not smarter) to achieve unnecessary stress and make you feel less successful and abundant. There is a much more expansive, empowering belief system available. You can begin to form these new beliefs today by living as if you have already arrived at this abundant life that you love.

Should you need help to change your mind set, just join me and I will gladly work with you to achieve this change.

This is a proven practice that has helped millions of people of the centuries, but you have to truly BELEIVE it to make it happen.

Self-Development Books | Online Life Coaching

So, who reads self-development books?  Seriously, reads them!

I can just hear you all, ‘who has time for reading?’  Yet in today’s times we still need to read.  Not only read, but read books that will help develop our minds and get us motivated with life again.

Self-Development Books

I am an online Life Coach and cannot stress how important it is for us to all keep growing mentally through the years.  It helps to build things like:

  • Self confidence
  • Happiness
  • Personal growth
  • Belief in one’s self
  • Trust
  • Faith
  • Sincerity, and so much more

If you look at the world not only in the present moment, but also in the past, you will notice one thing all leaders and wealthy people have in common, and that is reading self-growth and self-development books.

Here is a short video on this topic.

‘Relaxing’ in front of the TV

Do you spend time ‘relaxing’ in front of the TV, watching reality programs or the news?  Do you realise how depressing and stressful that is for your mind?  Nothing ‘relaxing’ happening there.  Most of what is shown on TV is violence, shootings, home invasions, murders, drugs and much more along along the lines of unpleasantness.

I personally cannot believe how many hours I used to sit in front of the TV, watching all those programs and advertisements, telling me what I ‘HAD to have in my life to be happy…  What a load of BS.  Watching the news about ‘who shot who’, or ‘stabbed who’ or ‘which child was abducted’, seriously that is ‘relaxing’?   Not in my life …

We as humans have become so programmed as to how we should behave that we have given up on the simple pleasures such as reading a book.  Become a better person and pick up a self-development book and read it.  Just to it for 15 minutes a day and you will begin to see a huge change in how you view life!  Now I am not talking some romance novel here, we are talking about books that teach you how to improve your life, self awareness, meditation, how to live in the ‘now’ and much much more….

A list of books I can personally recommend are:

  • Think and Grow Rich ~ Napoleon Hill
  • E-Squared ~ Pam Grout
  • The Alchemist ~ Paulo Coelho
  • A Happy Pocket Full of Money ~David Gikandi
  • 4 Hour Work Week ~ Timothy Ferriss

If you are interested in finding out more ways to improve your life or to change where your life is going, I would love for you to reach out to me by clicking the link below and providing me your email.  I will be in touch.

In closing, being an Online Life Coach and can only recommend that you give Self-Development Books a go.

How to Create a Business Life you Love | Create a Life you Love

How to Create a Business Life you Love | Create a Life you Love 

It is critical to create a life you love and if that includes building a business you love, so be it. It is your birth right, your privilege and your absolute duty to be happy.

For me, heaven knows that every moment is not perfect, but I make conscious choices throughout my days so that when I go to bed each night, I am able to say, “I love my life!” …and mean it too!

I truly believe that many issues people face, from depression – to relationship problems – to energy and focus – to self-worth and self-esteem – to beyond, could be solved with simple “Mind over Matter” and “Self Belief”.

Tony Robbins once said, learn from the people who are ahead of you.

 

Resistant State of Mind

When we are in stressful or frustrating situations, we tend to become really resistant to EVERYTHING in life. This, makes manifesting, creating, and living the life we want to seem like it’s not working or that it’s more difficult than it should be. So, we need to consciously practice being in a state of non-resistance. And then take it one step further, and be in a loving state.

How do you know if you are in a resistant state?

1. If things aren’t flowing
2. If you’re irritable, tense, mad at different people
3. If you’re not happy

Two things that I find really work well for me is reading ‘motivational books and listening to positive affirmational podcasts, help to shift your mind from a ‘resistant state’ to a non-resistant state.  Surround yourself with positive like minded people.

These few actions will most definitely enable you to achieve ~

Create a Life you Love and to Create a Business Life you Love

Negative, Complaining People are Depressing

Negative, Complaining People are Depressing

How come people get into our profession or any other online profession, then love to complain, to moan about ‘broken promises’ and how they lost money?

 

Last time I checked, it’s called being an entrepreneur and risk comes11050824_10153175493487863_5858029272794298184_n with it.

 

If someone doesn’t succeed in ANY business… it’s part of business, not everyone is meant to run a business.

 

You don’t see people who started a coffee shop, restaurant, clothing store, fitness club…or ANYTHING else and end up in front of the camera on the news saying, “Gee…I got ripped off. The clothing industry made me believe that I was going to succeed and I didn’t. It’s their fault.”  But this happens in online businesses.  Bla Bla Bla…  get over it, you are fogging up my brain!  Its draining me.

 

If someone doesn’t make it in network marketing or anything else for that matter, it’s probably because A) they weren’t cut out for it in the first place, or b) they didn’t apply themselves long enough, in an effective manner to produce the result.  It’s very tiring to listen to this negetivity.

 

It really pisses me off to hear people who come into a business, give it two weeks and then say they have been ripped off but THEY are 18519_1580881098836245_4570042020035667230_n - Copyoff to the next organisation!!!  (which needless to say will fail for them as well!!)

 

I for one, far prefer hanging out with people who are positive and encouraging.  I do not tolerate ‘negetivity’ and ‘complaining people’ in my world.   

 

The blame game is a lame game.
