Take a breath this morning
The dog can wait
The dishes will still be there in 5 mins
Write your worries down and put them to one side
It will be ok
You’ve got this
Love to you all x
I thought I would let Wayne do the talking today in a 101 ways. I love everything he has done, but I thought this would be a great start. With Love XWordless Wednesday, with Wayne Dyer. — The Ministry of Loves
Bring your gifts to the world
Everyone has something to offer today
You have a gift
A gift of kindness
A gift of a smile
A gift of listening
A gift of a helping hand
When you look at another human being today ask yourself
How can I help you today?
Just the beginning of my Wayne Dyer sharing. He is, for me, one of the greatest translators of the Tao de ching in modern day. He is compassionate, human, unpretentious, and has a way of making it crystal clear to all, which is surely the whole point. Dimistifying all with his bright, kind and real manner. […]Peace — Inspire Someone Today, Wonderful Wayne Dyer quote. — The Ministry of Loves
Being in the attitude of gratitude.
An instant mood lifter.
Practice as soon you wake and as you close your eyes to sleep.
What are you thankful for right now? Look around your space…
I’m thankful for my beautiful dog laid on the floor next to me, who brings me joy, love and comfort. I’m grateful for the bed I’m sat in it’s soft, warm and comforting and holds me whilst I’m sleeping. I’m grateful that I have a home to live in that shelters me and keeps me warm. I’m thankful for my warm cup of tea. I’m grateful I can hear the birds singing outside my room.
My list can go on, but you get the idea.
It helps to start writing them down, your own private gratitude journal because the physical acts of thinking it, saying it, writing it and seeing it involves more of your senses so affirms it in your subconsciousness.
Give it a go
You can do it
Have a good day x
What do I mean by taking the path of least resistance.
Life is full of making decisions, some small day to day, others life changing.
Some like wanting to start your own business, change jobs, leave relationships, move house, those kind of biggies.
Have you noticed that some things just seem an up hill battle, things get lost in the post, people don’t get back to you so you are chasing, plans fall through, you run out of money, whilst some things just seem to pan out smoothly, everything dropping into place, the right people appear, it happens quickly and that’s the path that’s meant to be, the path you are being guided down, the path of least resistance.
What’s going on for you right now that you feel is just wearing you out, it’s not happening but you keep pushing forward one step but two steps back?
Sometimes it’s just ok to let go of that idea, give yourself time and notice what’s naturally coming your way.
Having arrived home, every breath we take is an expression of our lives purpose
We no longer struggle to win, to gain the approval of others,
To meet expectations others had for us
To acquire, to achieve, this o hoard, or to fulfil someone else view of our Darma
We let go of conflict, certainty, being right, fighting, dominating, vanquishing, and feeling superior, all of this ego stuff looses its power and attraction
Where we arrive home
Where meaning and purpose welcomes us
We are home
from our home is where we begin

Change the way you see things
And the things you see will change

Do you see angel wings? X
Our mind doesn’t know the way
Our heart has already been there
And our soul never left

Talking to my inner peace, my space to take it all in, into my conscious mind
My physical body resting, peaceful in this place
My senses taking in the sounds around
The birds singing
The silence that isn’t silence
Humming in my ears
Whooshing of my heart
Softness of my breath
Clock ticking the fake time away
The now of just being here in this space
Taking notice of the way my physical body feels
The tightness across my lower back
Pressure on my tummy
The ache of my eye
Throbbing of feet
This all in my physical being that in this time I inhabit
Which is an instrument I can use how I will
Thoughts pinging here to there
I can be lead, let it me be guided for the better, learning, feeling
Being guided by an energy, a force that already knows
It is here to guide me
I am here to listen
For it is right
It knows what this ‘being’ is here to do
I just let it be and it will come to my physical thought
It is right
It is all right
The energy has lead me to this point of now
I am guided
I am that
I am now
Staying out of other peoples drama, is my todays thought…..
I have been so guilty of it in the past and am still now but more mindful of it and to stop it in its tracks. I seem to attract myself to people that are ‘drama queens’, always something major going on with there life. If you have been a bit ill with the sniffles, then they have had ‘Arabian Night flu” and the doctors said it was touch and go they nearly died! You know the kind of people I am talking about we all have them in our lives, some are as close as family members, when you think, yes finally they are settled got themselves a nice house job girlfriend…. Oh no what’s happened now… To people we work with, friends etc
I think why I am saying all of this is what has helped me in my ‘I want to feel better’ quest is to distance myself from those people, not get fully hooked in, not join their parade, and start swinging the batons around with them.
It does sound selfish really I know but they are energy zappers, spirit suckers, thought drainers.
- So I step out of the ring
- I let them know I still love them
- I am saving the energy for me
love to you all x
Here it is then a new year, beginning of a new week, new beginnings la de da… how many times have we heard that over this last week, the pressure of it all, thinking ‘shit’ if I don’t start something new today it will be too late, then that’s it I’ve failed before I have even started, now I have to wait till next year…..
And STOP its ok its not too late, it never is, it’s always a good time to start, the only time when it is to late is when we are dead!
I know that does sound a bit morbid but it is true, doing the job I do, I’m seeing them in and seeing them out and all the in between, and one thing I am sure about until you take your last breath there is always time, hope. Now don’t get me wrong I have my days and I am not ashamed to say, well I was but I’m learning to accept them, I have suffered from depression, I still suffer anxiety on a daily basis, panic overwhelming me like a wave of water over taking my head and body and this is what I was talking about in my last post, how do I get over this…over…wrong word, I don’t think I will ever get over, but what I am doing is learning how to manage, learning how not to let it get sunk right in, learning how to let thoughts of self harm, panic, self hate pass through like visitors… nice to see you but it’s always nice to see you go ….
Daily habits, as mentioned in last post,
So if you wanted, for example to be a concert pianist, it does not happen overnight, first you would get the resources, piano, music books, then you would go to someone that already knows how to play the piano, you would get lessons, then you would take on board what they have taught, because they are the person that have already done it, then you would practice what you have been taught until you are familiar with it, trained your muscle memory, then go back to the person that has more knowledge than you and go through the cycle again, you get my drift. Well these steps are the same for everything.
I want to feel better, spoiler alert…. it is not going to happen over night, so I am going to need resources, I am going to need to learn from someone or people that have learnt how to feel better, I am going to need to take on board what they have to say, now for the big one…. PRACTICE what they have suggested, then when I want to learn more and am ready for the next step go back to the people that have learnt more than me and carry on the cycle.
- Expert ….. Oh I hate that word… expert… a drip under pressure!!!! A person that knows more than I do, yes I know, I don’t know everything
- Keep repeating
What I am going to do in the coming year, I am going to share what resources I am and have used, including books, YouTube videos, pinterest and my best resource good old fashioned pen and paper. The people I have gone to that have and help me, whether that is someone I have never met but their writings have inspired me, to the people around in my life. How I practice, how I make time in my busy life of working in the ambulance service and now starting a second job in a mental health hospital, a family, grandchildren, dogs, you know all those time zappers. And how I find the motivation to keep going, what helps me, what stops me sinking into the pit with my dark passenger. And if any of this helps you then great! But if it does not then I am helping someone, I am helping me.
Love to you all x
