Y is for YES

Let’s take Eckhart Tolle’s quote and say ‘yes’ to life. So, stop what you’re doing, (which is reading this post – and I thank and appreciate you for doing so, it means the world to me that you are taking time out to join me, it truly does) but, let’s just take a second to stop reading and say ‘yes’ to life.

Here’s a little exercise; stand-up, have a little jump about, give yourself a little shake, feel the vibrations running through your hands, legs and feet … then punch the air like you’ve just been told the most exciting news ever. When you punch the air, shout ‘YES!’ Repeat this until you feel the vibes in your body lighting up. Keep shouting, ‘YES!’ until you feel it! Until you feel the shift in your mind and soul. Feel the excitement.

Now, if you’re not feeling the ‘YES!’ If you’re feeling more on the ‘NO!’ side of things, let’s look at this. It’s ok to feel as if there are more ‘Nos’ than ‘Yeses’ in your life, but the key is to not dwell on the ‘Nos’ … the key is to turn the ‘Nos’ into ‘Yeses’, turn these ‘Nos’ into opportunities, see the challenges, take the learning and turn these life curveballs into ‘Yeses’.

You see, whatever your thoughts, the universe is mirroring that right back to you. So, if you see these ‘Nos’ ask yourself, why is this happening? What can I take from this experience? What can I learn? What can I do differently? Believe that this, ‘No’ has happened for a reason so that you can get your ‘Yes’. Believe in that ‘Yes’. Sometimes life is a mini roller-coaster (or a humongous gigantic one) whichever we have to say ‘Yes’ and turn up. Even on those days when we feel it is impossible to say, ‘Yes’.

One of the best ways we can turn our ‘Nos’ into ‘Yeses’ is through gratitude. You’ll have heard me say this before and that’s because it’s true. I turned my own life around by focuses on my ‘Yeses’. Many many many moons ago, before I discovered the Law of Attraction, before I started my spiritual path and before I started surrounding myself with positivity, I was the ‘Mood-Hoover’ you’d want to avoid. Now, don’t get me wrong there was much to be ‘mood-hoovering’ about … Jeez, was there ever! However, when I realised I could change my ‘Nos’ into ‘Yeses’ my life changed.

Once I started to turn up and shout, ‘YES!’ Once I sought the ‘Yeses’ I bought more ‘Yeses’ to me. This is one of the reasons I write my blog, because this stuff works! It really works guys! I want you to have the ‘Yeses’ in your life. I’m drawn to write weekly about inspiring you because I truly believe, I had to have my ‘Nos’ so I could turn them around into ‘Yeses’ and then spread the word that the Law of Attraction is always working, and the universe is always responding …  so if we concentrate on our ‘Nos’ we will get more ‘Nos’ – so turn those ‘Nos’ into ‘Yeses’.

Seek the ‘Yeses’ in life. Say ‘Yes’. Turn up. Because YOU GOT THIS

 

In this week’s therapeutic writing exercise let’s think about your present ‘Yeses’

You may still be in the ‘No’ mode at the moment but truly think about things that are good in your life.

Start by writing a gratitude list.

Take a small gratitude list; write down 20 things you appreciate in your life. When you’ve done this list, say each one aloud, then do the exercise at the beginning of this post; punch the sky and shout ‘YES!’ Do this repeatedly, every morning this week.

FEEL THE POWER OF SAYING YES! When you feel your yeses, you’ll receive more!

Love & happiness to you always

X = EX

EX is for EXPRESS

Being a creative person, I love this quote by Kat Von D. I’ve always expressed myself through writing. Even in my younger days, I would write stories to express my feelings about what was happening in my life, especially as a teen. Anyone else, remember those days? Hormones raging, everything in the world seemed against you, restrictions from parents, teachers … I don’t know about you, but my teenage years were just a battlefield! Battlefield of emotions, feelings and trying to understand the world … I had a lot of whys that couldn’t be answered … But to release all that pent-up frustration, I would write.

I would write in my diary, but I always found it easier and more comfortable to write in fictional form. I loved (and still love) creating stories but basing them on real-life events. I love expressing myself through writing. I express myself through writing these blog posts and my fiction. We all have a reason for being here, our reason is our passion … our passion is a way of expressing ourselves.

So ask yourself, how are you expressing yourself? Are you expressing yourself? Are you keeping yourself hidden and feeling trapped because you are not allowing yourself the freedom to express?

Once you start to express yourself through a creative source or other, express to rid yourself of negative demons and then you’ll feel more love.

If you are expressing yourself from your truth, from your inner being, from your soul, you can’t help but feel more love. Letting go and expressing yourself is allowing yourself to feel free, allowing yourself to enjoy life and be you! Once you are ‘being you’, you’ll feel lighter, you’ll feel more love for yourself. Feeling love for yourself helps to radiate that love onto others. Once you are expressing from a place of love. You’ll feel peace.

This all sounds lovely, I understand, you may think you haven’t got time to express yourself … well, if you are that person thinking this, then you are the person who NEEDS to express themselves the most. Expressing yourself through your inner desires is as good as meditating. Some people feel meditating is sitting, listening to soft music and allowing our thoughts to fade. Unfortunately, this has never worked for me. I have tried, but I find it hard to switch off. I always have some project or idea fighting its way forward. I do, however, find putting on more upbeat music, something that I can dance too or calmer music I can sing to does help to clear my thoughts. Gabrielle Bernstein has some amazing meditation music, advice and tips.

But the best way for me to clear my thoughts is through writing. Pen on paper, not thinking, just writing … hence, another reason I set-up this blog; to show others how to use therapeutic writing to help them reach their goals, dreams and desires. Free writing is a way of expressing yourself without thinking about what you are writing. Simply write. It’s a great way to express yourself and get all those emotions out.

Your thing may not be writing … but you will have a way of expressing yourself … don’t shy away from that. Get out there and get expressing. The world needs you to express. You need you to express yourself.

In this week’s exercise, we are going to put the therapeutic writing to the side … unless that is the way you express yourself.

As I mentioned above, writing may not be your ‘thing’, so this week sit for five minutes and think about what you love.

Ask yourself …

What do I love doing? What makes me feel alive? What makes me feel like I’m talking from my soul? How can I express myself?

Now go and do it … this week, go and express yourself … Remember, YOU GOT THIS!

Remember: Positive messages throughout the day, helps the negative thoughts stay away.

This week’s inspirational word

W IS FOR WILLING


It’s pretty obvious really that if we want something, we must be willing to put the effort in. Nobody can push us if we’re not willing to be pushed. Just like nobody should be able to stop us if we are willing to push ourselves. You may know from my posts that I’m certified in the Law of Attraction … the LOA says, to relax, to not stress, because you bring more stress to you. So sometimes you may be willing to do what it takes to achieve your goals, but you may be stressing yourself with your over-willingness, your panic and your need to succeed. The universe reflects these feelings back to you, which leads to frustration, as you feel no matter how willing you are, you’re on that treadmill and not getting anywhere.

So, your willingness to put the work in must come from a positive approach. Let go of the angst, the worry, the stress … know that the work you are putting in, your willingness to move your life forward will be reflected back to you. The sooner you think positive clear thoughts, believe and just know that all will be okay, the sooner it will be reflected back to you.

Sometimes we stop willing to succeed because of hurdles or barriers, but if your heart is pulling and your soul is telling you this is your purpose, then you must be willing to overcome any situation that may feel as if it’s holding you back. Often things happen because we need to look deeper into ourselves, or we need to look deeper into the situation, is it trying to tell us something. As you’ll know from my other posts, I truly believe everything happens for a reason, so we must be willing to look for the lessons in anything that steps in our way.

If our heart is telling us this is our purpose, this is our reason for being, then we must be willing to follow our hearts, and most importantly we must be willing to trust our journey. Trust that we are on the right path and that we must overcome obstacles to learn and move forward. We must always be willing to see the bigger picture. If you have that urge inside of you, if your heart and soul are telling you to follow your passions, you must be willing to do what it takes to get there. Through love, effort and belief, you will achieve.


In this week’s therapeutic writing exercise think about your willingness to learn

Do you feel as if you’re being held back? Are you focusing on the negatives? Are you losing your faith? If so, this exercise is perfect for you.

Write down, in list form, all the things that you feel are holding you back. All the things that you believe are stopping you from achieving. Now this could be a certain situation that has happened, or something you are focused on … which you should realise, if you’re focused on the barriers, you’re inviting more barriers …

Take one of the barriers and now freewrite about how you feel it has stopped you progressing … yes, I understand this is negative, however, understanding what is actually stopping you will help you see that it is your attitude that is stopping you, not the actual situation.

Ask yourself, (and write down) what have I gained from this situation (there will be something), what have you taken away that can help you develop as a person and with your goal.

To do this exercise, you must be willing to learn. You must be willing to find the reason behind these barriers, what can you gain from them, what can you do to improve your situation. You must be willing to look at the learning experience of anything that gets in your way, because you will be able to take something away that will help you progress and move forward.

Remember: Positive messages throughout the day, helps the negative thoughts stay away.

This week’s inspirational word

V IS FOR VICTORY

We can feel victory in certain areas of our life, but our aim is to feel victorious in all areas of our life. Now, yes, this may mean hard work is needed in certain areas. But read the quote above …

I do love this quote, because if you have the fight in you; if you refuse to give up on your dreams, your soul purpose, you will achieve it. You must believe in yourself. You must believe that victory will be yours. You must take your life and live it to the fullest. You can feel victorious if you are working towards something because every day you will achieve another goal; every day you are a step closer. Every day you must reflect on the victory of your success for that day. A daily victory will lead to a life of victory.

To achieve that victorious feeling, you must believe you can do this. You must have faith in your ability. You must keep striving forward and know that you are going to win. Think about the Law of Attraction, whatever your thoughts you are attracting, you are the creator of your life. If you think you can win, you will … if you think you can’t win, you won’t! You will put the effort in where it’s needed if you want to feel victorious. Putting the effort in tells the universe you are willing to work towards your goals … the universe will respond with opportunities to help move you forward.

Talk positively about your goals, drive yourself forward and speak only about your victories, no matter how small they are. Don’t talk about situations not working. Don’t focus on the things that could go wrong. Think about, talk about and embrace all the wonderful things that will go right. Focus on the end goal and the winning. Focus on the victory. If you focus on victory you will bring that to you, if you focus on defeat you will bring that to you. So it’s important to check your thoughts and embrace the feeling of winning, embrace the feeling of achieving, embrace the feeling that you are victorious.

 

In this week’s therapeutic writing exercise let’s focus on the victories in life

This week’s exercise is to write daily. At the end of each day write about the achievements you have made, what victories can be celebrated. Small steps count and if you are ticking off boxes you are moving forward.

So every day this week write about your victories. If this helps, you can continue this after the week. It’s something you could get into the habit of doing. Sometimes we feel as if we haven’t got anywhere, we have days where we feel that treadmill is just rolling on and we are just walking through life. Life is happening to us, we’re not making it happen for us … once you start to write down your daily wins you’ll be encouraged to achieve more wins. You’ll feel the surge of energy to get out there and make life happen for you. Go and be victorious!

Remember: Positive messages throughout the day, helps the negative thoughts stay away.

This week’s inspirational word

U IS FOR UNIQUE

I love this quote from this awesome film because it’s so true. We are all unique in our own special way. Imagine if we all had the same characters, passions, desires, dreams, goals … wouldn’t the world be a boring place? The one thing we should all aim for is love. This includes following our hearts. In some cases, this means we may be judged, however, this says more about the people doing the judging than it does about you. Who are we to judge anyone else? Who are we to say that we are better than anyone else? When we were born into this world, we were given certain talents, that I like to call gifts. We know what these gifts are by our desire to fulfil certain passions. Our aim, while we are here on this physical plane, is to follow these passions and make a difference in this world, through love and understanding.

Anyone who understands the spirituality of a higher power will understand how we are born into this world as souls presented in the human form; our souls have decided we needed to be here at this particular time. It’s only as we grow, spirituality is drawn away from us, as we have to conform to societal rules. Rules that humans have put in place. Rules that have become a norm. Trust me when I say these rules are of human-doing, not God’s. God only comes from a place of love, with that love, he gave us free will. Unfortunately, that free will hasn’t been used to express the love, that was intended, by many. The judgement of others is not coming from a place of love. It’s important that we realise we are all equal, no-one is better than anyone else, we are all unique in our own way. Many people come from a place of fear because they are scared to show their uniqueness.

Fear is the thing that will hold you back from being the unique individual you were put here to be. Once you can let go of this fear, embrace the love you were born with, you will find your uniqueness and you will thrive forward. You will place your faith in a higher power and you will move forward as the wonderful special individual that you are. Once you realise we all come from the same place, we are all here on one mission only; to spread love and joy, you can’t help but understand how your passion (your gift) links into this mission. Once you are following your passion, once you are doing what you love, you can’t help but feel the joy and you can’t help but spread this further afield. Your passion will always inspire and influence someone else. You will be spreading the love without knowing you are doing it.

So, when you use your uniqueness to spread love, not judging others, not allowing the judgement of others to affect you, you let go of fear. You will understand that we are all special. It comes down to choices … choosing to see the special uniqueness of every individual you come into contact with, choosing to shine as the unique person you were put on this earth to be and choosing to embrace the love that comes with this wonderful outlook on life. Embrace your uniqueness, don’t let anyone take that away from you … and don’t you take it away from anyone else.

In this week’s therapeutic writing exercise let’s write about your uniqueness …

You realise you’re unique, right? You understand you have a magic inside of you that needs to shine, yes?

You must feel this … if you don’t feel it, ask yourself why are you the same as everyone else? Those beliefs, by the way, is just your fear talking, your ego stopping you from expressing the unique and wonderful individual that you are.

In this week’s exercise write about yourself from a 3rd person’s point of view. NOTE:  THIS CANNOT BE NEGATIVE!!! No negativity is allowed in these sessions. Write about yourself as your loved ones see you … all positive … write down all the good qualities people see in you.

Now keep this with you and remind yourself daily, with these notes, about the wonderful, unique person that you are. Read this daily until you believe it, you own it, you are proud of your uniqueness. Read this daily until you feel the love.

Believe in yourself … you got this!

Remember: Positive messages throughout the day, helps the negative thoughts stay away.
