Do you let your heart or your head rule?

Often we let our heads rule over our hearts. We analysis situations, we judge, we criticise … we overthink.

Once you become more aligned with your spiritual being you will find it easier to follow your heart. Imagine your heart is coming from a place of love, passion & purpose and then imagine your head is coming from a place of fear.

This is a dramatic way to look at life and I understand that it really isn’t that simple, however, if you can simplify it then you’ll see how your life is meant to be full of love. Imagine coming from a place of love and light. Imagine following your heart and knowing that everything will fall into place. By listening to your fear, you are listening to what is known as the ego.

Once you learn to listen to your heart, come from only a place of love, you will feel so fulfilled that your ego won’t be able to push you away from the things you love.

If you’d like to more about listening to your heart & not your ego, you can read the previous blog here on how to live with a grateful & loving heart

This week’s update to my Etsy shop is fabulous heart quotes.

Remember to surround yourself with positivity to keep the negative thoughts away.

Often we think with our heads, we over-analyse, we judge, we criticise and we don’t come from a place of love. So to remind yourself to come from a place of love, surround yourself with positivity. There are plenty of other quotes on my shop to help keep these loving thoughts at the forefront of your mind.

Do you feel stagnant? Do you feel stuck in a rut? 

Life can often do this to us, but it’s only us who can do something about it. It is only us who can push ourselves to grow. Is there something deep inside of you that knows you have more to give to the world? You know there should be more to your life than there is?

Sometimes we need a short sharp push to get us out of our comfort zones. If that isn’t happening, there are no ‘AH-HA’ moments in your life, then you need to be the change. You need to think about what it is you want and make those changes happen. Don’t let the fear of what could go wrong interfere with what could go amazingly right. This life journey is one big learning curve, so pick-up on the lessons and ensure that you grow to live the wonderful life you should be leading.

You can read the previous blog post on, ‘How to personally grow when you’re stuck in a rut’ here. Quotes and a therapeutic writing exercise to help.

As I always say, ‘Small steps count’, put small goals in place to help you achieve your personal growth. To help you, surround yourself with positivity. Covering your walls in inspirational messages is a great way to stay positive.

This week, 7 quotes on growth have been added to my Etsy Shop.

We all have more to give. We can all be learning new ways to grow. Even if you are happy and content with your life, there will be ways you can learn to grow, whether this is spiritually or emotionally, there’s always lessons we can be learning. There’s always a way in which we can grow. If we’re not growing, we are stagnant. Is our job on this physical plane finished? Obviously not, we are still here. We still have some growing to do. So be the seed and continue to blossom.

Do you find it hard to stay focused?

Do you find yourself procrastinating? Do you have lots of things you are juggling and find it hard to prioritise?

Staying focused can be a hard task to achieve if you’ve got 101 things running through your mind. We often have work, family and other commitments to adhere to. However, if you have a goal or a dream you would like to fulfil, it’s important to put steps in place to ensure you achieve your desires. Small steps count. So if it’s only the smallest of steps, baby steps, it’s better than no steps at all. Little by little you will focus on the outcome. If it helps to put small goals in place to achieve your bigger goals, then do this. This most definitely helps with staying focused.

As always you can read my previous post on staying focused, where you can have a go at the therapeutic writing exercise.

Focus on what you have achieved. Focus on the positive aspects of life. Drown out the negativity with your determined focusing.

YOU GOT THIS!

Another way to help you stay focused is to surround yourself with positivity.

You can download and print these 7 Quotes that will help you stay focused. Frame them and place around your home or office.

Sometimes we can become overwhelmed with certain tasks that need fulfilling, but once we focus on what we want, it’s easier to overcome any obstacles or challenges, because we focus on the wonderful outcome. On my own life mission that everyone remains true to themselves and forever positively focused, you can download this free guide and make your own inspirational box.

Do you feel as if you have many dreams but just can’t achieve them?

Do you feel as if your dreams are too big to achieve?

If you feel you can’t achieve your dreams or your dreams are too big, then you are projecting this out to the universe. The universe is then saying, ‘Well if that’s what you think, then so it is.’ So if you were to change your thoughts to know that you CAN achieve your dreams, watch how the universe responds to that. Nothing is too big if you believe. Believe in yourself. Don’t listen to the nay-sayers. If you have a dream, this is your passion, imagine it is your purpose … YOU GOT THIS!

If you’re struggling with this concept, as many of us have and do … try this therapeutic writing exercise to help you understand how following your dreams will make you happier.

If you can’t fulfil your dream for yourself, for whatever reason (if this is the case, you need to read every single one of my blog posts and instil a belief and love in yourself) look at fulfilling it for the greater good. We are here to serve. Once you realise this and understand that we can’t let our ego or other people’s egos get in our way, you will be much happier. Follow your dreams, as you are dreaming for a reason.

Before I show you some awesome products that will help and remind you, you are worthy of following your dreams, check out these downloadable Dream Prints from my Etsy shop

Do you have the courage to pursue your goals?

Do you listen to your ego and not allow yourself to feel the freedom of following your dreams?

You are here for a reason; your passion is your purpose – your purpose is your reason for being.

So have the courage to let go of self-doubts, other people’s doubts and make your life’s purpose, your life mission.

Below I’ve listed some awesome products that can help you find the courage to follow your heart. Before you look through them, why not try out the self-reflective therapeutic creative writing exercise, designed to help you see how courageous you are.

You can be whoever you want to be. You can be the person who trundles through life, whining that it’s unfair because you are not living the life of your dreams, OR you can be the person who courageously took your passion and pursued your life mission with all that you had. No listening to nay-sayers, mood-hoovers and negativity. You can be the person who made it happen.

By choosing the latter, which is the option I insist you have the courage to take, you will see a lift in your energy. This lift is telling you that you’re on the right track. While fulfilling your passion and purpose see how many people are positively affected by you pursuing your goal. By you having the courage to focus on what it is you want from life, you automatically give out positive vibes, these vibes are like a chain reaction, they spread to others and your courage encourages them. Now you may not be able to give up the day job, just yet, but start investing time into your passion. Remember; small steps count. Have the courage to pursue the reason you are here.

Still feel you need a little support? Here are some of my favourite products to help you find your courageous streak.

1. The Courage to Be Creative: How to Believe in Yourself, Your Dreams and Ideas, and Your Creative Career Path

Every time I write about Doreen Virtue’s books, I want to say, ‘This is my favourite’ … all her books are so amazing that I can’t help but be drawn to them all. This particular book truly resonated with me, as being a creative soul that was never encouraged too much as a child, I struggled to conform to the traditional job roles that I was expected to take on. So listening to this, as I did through audible, Doreen Virtue touched my heart and soul. I truly connected with this book and I encourage anyone who is not only creative, but also those who may be at a loss as to what their purpose is, this book will definitely help.

      

2. Courage Is Contagious: And Other Reasons to Be Grateful for Michelle Obama

This book is short but powerful. A collection of stories from people who have met Michelle Obama, and how she is one of the most awesome and courageous women that changed their lives. Michelle Obama is such an inspiration and listening to real-life stories that have impacted others just made me in more awe of her.

      

3. Portable Color Me Fearless: 70 Coloring Templates to Boost Strength and Courage

How could I not include this? I love these therapeutic colouring books that have become ever so popular over the last few years, but ‘Color Me Fearless’ what a name!

4. Notebook Journal – Strong and Courageous

5. ‘There is a superman in all of us we just need the courage to put on the cape’ -superman quote

I absolutely adore this quote. If you are struggling with being courageous, this is a great quote to place in your home, so you can see it daily and be reminded that you are strong enough. I’m all about encouraging our children to believe in themselves, they can be whoever they want to be, they can do whatever they want to do … this quote is perfect for a child’s bedroom. A morning and evening affirmation that will give them belief.


     

6. Muhammad Ali He Who Is Not Courageous Quote – Wall Sticker

Another awesome wall quote that will encourage anyone who reads it. Sometimes we have to be courageous enough to follow our hearts and souls, follow our reason for being, if that means taking some risks, then so be it. However, don’t doubt yourself when you take these risks, you don’t want that doubt being reflected back to you. Believe in yourself. You got this!

      

7. Courageous Heart Crystal Pendant, made with Crystals from Austria

Any jewellery with a meaning is a must for me. This stunning courageous heart crystal pendant is beautiful. Hearts being ‘my thing’, the contrast of the purple and blue colours and the elegant sparkling diamonds, this is simply fabulous. This is a gorgeous piece of jewellery that can be worn all the time, so whenever you’re feeling vulnerable, you can wrap your fingers around the perfected sparkly heart and remember you are strong, you are courageous … again, you got this!!

      

8. Pendant Necklace & Keychain Set – Dog Tag Military Stainless Steel Inspirational Jewelry “Courage Is Not The Absence Of Fear”

These dog tags express the meaning of courage brilliantly. We may have fear but put that aside and have the courage to push yourself forward. Remember what you’ll gain from breaking down those walls of fear. These dog tags can be worn as a pendant, a keychain or attached to a handbag or school bag. Wherever they hang, they are an excellent reminder that you have the courage.

      

9. Willow Tree Courage (Angel) 

Placing ornaments around your home that symbolise certain meanings, is a great way to stay positive. Surrounding yourself with positivity is key to staying positive. I believe this means surrounding your home with positive vibes. Little keepsakes such as this gorgeous angel encourages us to stay focused on our goal. This angel encourages us to have the courage to pursue our dreams.

      

10. Angelstar Angel Worry Stone, Courage

Worry stones are very popular. They are great to carry in your pocket or a bag to encourage you to stay focused and positive. This gorgeous pocket angel is a worry stone that encourages you to be courageous. If you feel you need some help in being courageous, while you are out and about, this little angel is perfect to carry around with you.

      

Fear is one of the things that holds many people back. Fear can grab at your insides and not allow you to move forward. This is your ego talking you out of being great. Have the courage to be amazing. Have the courage to follow your heart. Have the courage to pursue your passion. Remember, your passion is your purpose. Don’t let it slip away.
