Are you controlling your mind, or is it controlling you?

Our minds are so powerful, you might not even know the answer to this question.

We spend much of our days going from one thing to another, daily tasks being fulfilled, starting our day on the mission we intended and when the day is over, sometimes we’ve achieved that mission and other days, not so much. We can end our days tired and worn out, wondering what it’s all about. This is where you’re letting your mind control you. You are letting your thoughts wander, we let our outer world take over our inner selves. We get caught up in life, expectations, demands, deadlines, pressures that we forget actually we have control.

We have the ability to control our lives, control our thoughts, control our destination.

We get to choose HOW we respond to things that are happening in our lives.

When you really think about this, it’s extremely powerful!

The Law of Attraction is always working … therefore whatever you’re thinking about, you are putting out to the Universe and the Universe is delivering those thoughts back to you in situations, circumstances, etc. So, again, if you read the imagination blog post, have a go at playing the imagination game.

Usually, we can take command of our thoughts because we notice our mood isn’t as high as we would like it to be … if you’re feeling this way, ask yourself why you feel this way … but then don’t let yourself dwell on this. I understand it’s not as easy as, ‘snap out of it,’ that’s why thinking in a positive light is something to work on for yourself. Once you start realising your negative thoughts are bringing your emotions down, you will soon be able to adapt these thoughts. The quickest way to turn this around is appreciation. Once you look at life with abundance and fulfilment, you’ll soon wipe out those feelings of lack. So train your mind to come from a place of love and gratitude and watch your world change.

Are you having enough laughter in your life?

In my previous post that I shared on laughter, I shared an article that research had shown how laughter is extremely good for us. Laughter is one of the best forms of releasing built-up anxiety and stress. Often if we’re not in a good place, the last thing we want to do is laugh. However, if we can bring ourselves out of the comfort zone of worrying and bring some lightness into our lives, you will see how laughter can help with lifting your worries.

I love this blog post by Thomas Flindt; he talks about his laughter classes and reasons why we stop laughing as we grow older.

The sound of children laughing is one of the best sounds. I love listening to my daughters playing and something setting them off laughing. Plus, they both have a way of trying to tell me a funny story, but can’t get their words out because the laughter has kicked in, this in itself makes me laugh. I truly appreciate those times and we relish in them together.

In my previous post on laughter you can take part in the therapeutic writing exercise. Ask yourself are you laughing enough? Plus, you’ll find more quotes, tips and advice on bringing more laughter into your life.

So as promised, here’s some awesome quotes to encourage more laughter into your life.

You can even visit my shop and purchase the quotes below … surround yourself with positive and fulfilling thoughts.

Remember, laughter will keep you young. So surround yourself with wonderful quotes that will help lift your spirits and remind you to look on the brighter side of life.

Are you leaving things up to Karma?

When we talk about karma it is often used to refer to ‘negative things’ that have happened. You’ll have heard people referring to Karma in terms of revenge, i.e: ‘They’ll get their karma!’ But Karma isn’t a ‘thing’, imagine it as an energy being transmitted back to you. Whatever you give out, you are receiving back. So think about this quote from Dr. Wayne Dyer,

‘How people treat you is their karma, how you react is yours.’

Therefore, if you feel someone has mistreated you in some way, the worst thing you can do is be full of hatred, anger and wishing them bad karma. You are inevitably wishing it upon yourself. Come from a place of love and simply understand what they put out into the world is what they will receive back. Karma is a loving energy that when embraced will bring to you wonderful loving delights … when we understand this, we come from a place of appreciation and gratitude.

If you’d like to know more about how you can increase your own Karma, you can engage in this therapeutic writing exercise.

If we are feeling mistreated it can sometimes be hard to come from a place of love and forgiveness, so surrounding yourself with reminders to keep hold of a positive attitude will bring good Karma to you.

Below are the Karma quotes featured on my online shop, you can click to print and frame for yourself or family and friends

So remember, it doesn’t matter what others do to you … send them loving good thoughts … karma is always working, make it work for you, not against you.

Are you jumping into your life? Or are you dragging through at snail pace?

Your morning alarm goes off … how do you respond? Snooze five million times until the last second hits you? Jump for joy at your wonderful day ahead? Or somewhere in-between?

My mornings vary between all three. Sometimes I snooze simply because I’ve worked late the night before (if this is the case, whatever my work was involving, blogging, creating workbooks, marketing, writing … whichever, I would have chosen to work late as I would have been thoroughly enjoying what I was doing). So even when I snooze, it’s a nice cosy feeling, it’s not a feeling of, ‘OMG, I CAN’T FACE THE DAY!’ It’s a feeling of, I’m so lucky, I get to grab an extra few minutes kip.

Sometimes life takes over and we forget there’s so much to be excited about. If you don’t feel this, then it’s time to create something to be excited about. Imagine the universe can deliver anything you want … ANYTHING! What would you jump out of bed for? What would really get your juices pumping? What would give you a reason to not press that snooze button, unless you felt lucky enough to just press it, because you can?

If you’d like to know more about how to jump into life and ignore the fear, you can read my blog post here. It also includes quotes, tips and a therapeutic writing exercise to help you take a leap of faith.

If you’d also like to surround yourself with quotes that will remind you to take the jump, you can visit my online shop for downloadable prints.

Live life to the fullest … do what you can with what you have … be grateful for all the opportunities that come your way … jump into the opportunities that serve you! Take the leap and have faith … if you don’t jump you’ll never know how close you were to making your dreams come true.

Imagination is what can bring dreams into reality

If you read my blog posts, or you’ve heard of the Law of Attraction, you’ll probably understand the quote, ‘Your thoughts create your reality …’ and other quotes similar to this. In other words, what we think about, what we muse upon, what we worry about, what we are happy about … the thoughts that dominate our minds the most, are the thoughts that we project out to the universe and these are delivered back to us, with situations and circumstances representing those thoughts.

Have you ever noticed how miserable people always have something to complain about and how happy people see the brighter side of life? It doesn’t mean that happier people don’t have anything to complain about, it simply means they choose to look at the things they are grateful for, therefore, bringing more happiness to them. Once you start noticing this, you will start to monitor your thoughts.

Whether you believe the above or not, why not start having some fun with it. Use your imagination to create something you want in your life. Imagine receiving it; imagine the feeling of receiving it. The universe responds to feelings … it is all about the emotion connected to your thoughts. Ie: the universe reacts to your feelings and emotions. So if you’re feeling sad and down, it can be hard to get yourself out of that rut. It can be hard to imagine feeling good and happy. So the best way to do this, is to imagine something amazing happening in your life. Imagine how you would feel if you got some good news about something you want. Imagine that feeling. The emotion linked to this is very important. Remember being a child and being able to role-play … bring your inner child to the forefront.

If you would like help even further on using your imagination, you can read the previous post here to help you use your imagination to live the life you have dreamed about, includes quotes and a therapeutic writing exercise.
