Inspirational Word of the Week: Inspire

This week’s inspirational task …

Ask yourself: How do you Inspire yourself? How do you inspire others?

Inspiring yourself is a great way to stay motivated. If you have goals you want to achieve, keeping yourself inspired is a great way to achieve them. You’ll read on the bottom of my posts, one of my own favourite quotes, ‘Positive messages throughout the day help keep the negative thoughts stay away’. I love reading inspirational quotes, I love reading about inspirational people. People who have achieved their goals and fulfilled their dreams.

If you want to achieve something, a great way to be inspired is to follow and learn from someone who has achieved the same goal. Anything can be achieved if we are motivated enough.

You’ll find when you feel inspired, it’s easier to inspire others.

If you’d like to know more about, how you can become inspiring, you can read the previous blog post hereas with all inspirational words from our A-Z journey it features a therapeutic creative writing exercise.

You can also see the ‘Be Inspiring’ message we are spreading through inspirational clothing, as you never know who needs to see your message.

But firstly, here are a few inspirational quotes …

I love this last quote … if you’ve never had that feeling, if you’ve never inspired someone, your task this week is to think about how and who you could inspire. Be the person who inspires other. Be the person who inspires you.

As always, my mini message to you and why I love inspirational quotes … (I repeat this message on these blogs, as I truly want people to look at the positives in life and focus on the good. By reiterating that here, if it helps at least one person, then this blog is worth it)

I truly hope you get something from my words. When I was at my lowest, I inundated myself with quotes. I even started my own spreadsheet of quotes. I remember updating my spreadsheet while sitting in one of the spare bedrooms of my in-laws’ house, my two-year-old cuddled up to me, while my newborn laid in the crib next to the bed. I remember thinking, I have to stay positive. We have to get through this period of helplessness; lost businesses, family disputes, mental health problems, financial wreckage … it was safe to say, I was so grateful to my in-laws for putting a roof over our heads and food in our mouths, as I’m not sure where we would have ended up. I keep this short, as this part of my life is a novel in itself. But I want you to know, life is full of lessons … it’s up to us to face those challenges, knock down those barriers and keep going. Staying positive is easier said than done when you’re faced with daily struggles, but I trained my brain to only look at the bright side and block out the negative. By doing this, the Universe showed me that I can have all that I dream of and life can be magical, miracles do happen and life can be pretty awesome.

I developed my spreadsheets into daily inspirational quote books. A few years later, when I started my MA in Creative Writing, I totally connected with reflective writing. Hence the reason, I developed therapeutic creative writing exercises on my blog.

Since then, I’ve never given up on inspirational messages. I love them; I wake up to them, I go to sleep with them. I have my own affirmations. I want everyone to know the power of the mind. The power that you have to inspire yourself and others, no matter how much you feel this can’t happen for you. Trust me, from someone who felt the same, it can happen for you. YOU can make it happen. Remember, the Law of Attraction is always working, so if you feel negative things are happening in your world, listen to your thoughts, look for things to be grateful for, look for things to appreciate and watch your world become blessed with miracles and magic.

Inspirational Word of the Week: Habits

This week’s inspirational task …

Ask yourself: How good are your habits?

When we think about habits, we usually automatically think of bad habits, however, if we can create bad habits, then it’s possible to create good habits.

What good habits would you like to have? Exercising? Healthy eating? More organised? Once you start to introduce new good habits into your life, you’ll feel much better. Habits don’t happen overnight, and if you’re trying to break a bad habit, it will take determination and motivation. The best way to break a bad habit is to replace it with a good habit … How?

Well, if you’d like to know more about,

How you can change your bad habits into good habits, you can read the previous blog about habits here, as with all inspirational words from our A-Z journey it features a therapeutic creative writing exercise.

You can also see below the message of changing your habits, we are spreading through inspirational clothing, as you never know who needs to see your message.

But firstly, here are a few inspirational habit quotes to get you thinking …

This week’s positive word

on our A-Z Inspirational Journey …

Z is for

ZING

Zing … what a strange but beautiful word.

Hopefully this post, will help you to find your Zing!

Credit: Victoria J.Brown

If someone asked me to describe what it means to find my zing … I’d use words like, sparkling, vibrancy, exhilarating, tantalising … Does this describe your life?

Don’t worry, most people will say no here! But wouldn’t it be lovely to be one of those people who says, ‘Yes’, my life is full of zing.

I like to be honest in my posts, if you haven’t noticed already … but life is full of challenges. You may have faced something or you are facing something that is a complete upheaval in your life and you read these posts wondering if all this fluffy stuff is true. Trust me when I say, I couldn’t have written a blog that consists of an A-Z Inspirational Journey if I didn’t think it was true.

Life has thrown many many MANY challenges my way! Once I’d learned about the Law of Attraction I realised that it was me holding back on the good in my life. It was me that was attracting the negativity. Sometimes we have to let go of negativity to bring the positive into our lives. Whether that be a situation or a person. It may seem like the hardest thing to do at the time. Look for the signs, ask for help from the Angels and they will guide you.

Finding you zing for life is the reason you are here – your zing is your passion and your purpose. Your passion is what gives you the motivation to drive forward, which will add that extra zing into your life. Just how Emma Watson describes it;

Credit: Like Success

You’ll find when you’ve found your passion and you have that extra zing in your life, that life becomes a journey of little zings. Little zings that are made up of little things. Little things that you may have taken for granted, not learned to appreciate until you find your Zing.

Now, I could talk all day about what your zing is, but you may be wondering how you can go about finding your Zing …

This week’s therapeutic creative writing exercise (and the last of this A-Z’s Inspirational Journey)

HOW TO FIND YOUR ZING:

  • Start by closing your eyes, breathing for 10 minutes or longer if needed. 
  • Imagine, while you’re breathing, your ‘ideal’ life – where are you? Who are you with?
  • In this ‘ideal’ life, imagine your alarm going off on a morning, imagine yourself jumping out of bed and knowing your day is going to be filled with happiness.
  • Imagine, what would give you that happiness? What you would do that would make you happy?
  • Some people may feel nothing … but imagine that you do have a purpose. I believe everyone has a purpose, so it’s sad if you feel you don’t have one. So let’s think about this … What is your passion? What are your hobbies? What makes you tick? There must be something … if you are feeling quite low and you’re unsure of where you’re meant to be, try thinking back to being a child … ‘When I grow-up I want to be a …’ If it’s never too late to change your profession, your goals, your dreams … we change as we get older, we become interested in different things, but what makes us unique is our own special mission. Many people have forgotten their mission, bogged down by finance worries, work pressure, family strains … many people have lost their zing.
  • So write down what you would be doing in your ideal life, when you were younger did you say you wanted to be a nurse? Did you fulfil this dream? If not, what are you doing at the moment? Are you helping others? Are you working in a caring role? Try and look inside yourself and really thing about what makes you tick. When you find it, when you start putting plans in place to pursue it, you will start to find that zing … that calling. The reason you are here.
  • If you’re still struggling, this is great time to do some freestyle writing. Freestyle writing is an awesome way to let go of your emotions and find out what and where our blockages are. What is really happening in our world? Where can we put things back on track to understand where we want to be.

Life has and will continue to throw challenges at you, but as I’ve talked about before all challenges are relative. What we need to do is open our hearts, minds and eyes to what is really happening in our world. Whatever is going on in your world, whatever pressures, struggles, problems, challenges you are facing, once you find your zing: your passion, your purpose, your reason for living … you will work your way through these barriers, in fact, you will bash down these barriers like the flimsy walls that they are, not the concrete jail you feel you are stuck within.

Remember, you deserve to find your zing; your passion, your purpose, your reason for living 🙂

Wishing you love, happiness and fulfilment always

This week’s positive word

on our A-Z Inspirational Journey …

C is for

CHOICES

choices-3

Sometimes we are faced with difficulties in life that we have to either overcome or dwell upon.

But once you understand that life is a journey, and every stop is meant to be, you can choose to embrace the tight bends, the smooth corners, the bumpy roads, the upward hills or the tranquil ride.

If you have read about the Law of Attraction  you’ll understand that a tranquil ride will continue to lead to a tranquil ride, whilst a bumpy rollercoaster ride can continue to lead along the same path, this can depend on how you choose to look at your ride.

If you are experiencing some tight bends and bumpy roads at the moment, depending how you choose to think about these life events, will result in the next part of your journey.

 This may be hard to comprehend if you feel as if you are stuck in some kind of rut or are facing some true life or health difficulities.

Hope you’re enjoying the therapeutic creative writing exercises, here’s this week’s:

HOW TO CHOOSE A BETTER YOU:

Ask yourself these two questions …

  • On a day to day basis do you feel as if you’re plodding through mud?
  • Do you look at other peoples’ lives, envy them and look at the bad in your own life?

If you answered yes to the above questions, here could lie the reasons behind the problems you are experiencing in your life.

choose

Now ask yourself these two questions …

  • Which part of your life do you feel is running quite smoothly? (One rule with this question – you can’t answer ‘nothing’ – find something! There will be something!)
  • When was the last time you did something with LOVE for someone else?

Now write down your thoughts, here you could do some freestyle writing.

Once you’ve done that, read through and highlight which parts are your choice? You should find that most of it is through choice. If not, have another look through, whilst reading think about your thoughts, can you look at things differently? Can you choose your thoughts? Can you choose to look at a situation and see the good in it?

Now start freestyle writing about how life could be, how you wish it could be if you made these changes to your thoughts.

Life is about making choices; to choose to see the good around us or choose to dwell upon which isn’t good. Sometimes we could dislike something so much in our life that it can take over our whole being. For example: how many people HATE their jobs. I don’t like using the would hate. It’s a very strong passionate word that can seep into someone’s bones. There are people who hear their alarm go off on a morning and feel a deep sickly pit at the bottom of their stomach (I know because I was one of them, many many many years ago!). I deeply HATED the jobs I had, I moved from job to job … but every time I moved jobs, I knew I word HATE it! I knew I would hate it because it wasn’t what I wanted to do with my life. I wasn’t fulfilling my dreams by moving from job to job. But as the LOA would tell us, I brought the hate on myself.

If only I’d known that I was simply dreaming of the life I wanted, but not actually doing anything about it and blaming everyone else, circumstance and life in general – I knew what I wanted to do, I knew what I had to do but I would put constant barriers up … excuses!

I chose excuses!

ibo-social-chocices

In my jobs I wasn’t appreciated – but then I didn’t really appreciate anyone else. I was envious of those who laughed their way through the day and got promoted!!! How dare they! How can these people who spent much of their time laughing and chatting keep getting promoted – especially over someone like me who came in early, worked through my lunch hour, took work home with me and was more qualified than most of the office!

How could this keep happening? If only I could travel back to those days and give that younger version of me a shake. Although, I do often think I had to go through those thoughts to understand my thoughts now. I’m grateful for the experiences I’ve endured. I choose now to be the most positive, grateful and loving person possible.

I don’t recognise the younger me … it doesn’t even feel like me. I wish I’d known then what I know now about choosing my response to my situation … so much unhappiness leads to more unhappiness.

It’s as simple as this –

great-attitude-quotes-thoughts-life-choice-best-nice

Credit: quotesgram

Ask yourself two more questions …

  • Do you want to be around someone who has the ability to do a particular job or task, but is deterimental to others, to themselves and to life in general?
  • Do you want to be around someone who may need to learn a few things, but has the determination, enthusiasm and the zest for life to push themselves forward?

Now ask yourself another question …

Who do you CHOOSE to be?

Although it would be great to go back and give the younger version of my selfish self a ‘good old’ talking to, I also understand all my life events have bought me to where I am today. I have had to experience some awful hard times, but I understand now and it all makes perfect sense. Everything happens for a reason, it’s your choice to understand the reason.

Life is simple when you look at it simply! Life is beautiful! We must choose to see the beauty. Once you see the beauty … it all becomes clear.

choices-2

Wishing you love, happiness and fulfilment always

Wealthy Wednesday – Inspiring You!

 WEALTHY WEDNESDAY

This week we look at

Memories of Heaven: Children’s Astounding Recollections of the Time Before They Came to Earth

Dr Wayne W. Dyer and Dee Garnes

wealth-is

What is Wealthy Wednesday?

Wednesday is about helping you build a wealthy mind through inspirational books, articles, videos or other resources that will help you develop your wealth of knowledge.

Wednesday is a good day to understand your feelings. Are you counting the hours down until the weekend? Did you get out of bed this morning and think, ‘I’m nearly half-way through the week’?

We can all continue to develop our wealthy minds, but if you relate to the above, your spiritual wealthiness definitely needs some TLC 🙂

This week’s book is one by Dr Wayne W. Dyer and Dee Garnes

Memories of Heaven:

Children’s Astounding Recollections of the Time Before They Came to Earth

memories-of-heavens

This book was sat on my shelf for quite a while before I actually read it. I would lift it from the bookshelf and then put it back after being distracted by other things.

However, I decided in the summer to take it on holiday. After reading Doreen Virtue’s Miracles of Archangel Gabriel I was drawn to the book … would could children tell us about our time before here?

Well, I wasn’t disappointed with the recollections; it was an amazing and awe-inspiring read. Gripping from the start.

Usually on holiday I listen to audible so I can watch my girls in the pool etc. so having this book as a paperback I wasn’t sure I would have chance to read it, however, once I started, I could not put it down.

My girls are now nine and seven years, and this book bought back memories of their time when they were younger. I remember when Lexi, my eldest, was just two years old and she had an imaginary friend called Lucy. Lucy came everywhere with us, ate with us and even slept with Lexi most nights. Lexi would come up with these stories about Lucy, where she’d been, who her family was etc. I use to think that she had an amazing imagination, and being a writer myself and telling stories from a young age, I didn’t really think anything of it.

One particular day, Lexi asked me to take a photo of her and Lucy, of course, I joined in the fun, like I always did. I snapped a few photos, telling Lexi and (supposedly Lucy) to smile for the photo. Lexi wanted to view the photo on my camera, you can imagine my shock when she said, ‘Where’s Lucy?’ ‘Lucy isn’t on the photo?’ I still get tingles now when I think about that conversation.

After reading this book, I wish I’d been able to read it when my girls were younger, especially when Lexi was communicating with the little girl Lucy. Any parents or grandparents of younger children should definitely read this book. It shows the innocence of our babies and toddlers, their purity before they are moulded into what our society thinks they should be.

There are some bad reviews that say this book repeats itself, but doesn’t that give the children’s stories in this book more validity? If many children are reciting the same kind of stories about the their time before they were born, wouldn’t that mean there is more truth behind these stories? I think so. Whether you believe in afterlife or not, rebirth or Reincarnation, this is still an interesting and inspiring read. It shows there is more to life than our bodies on this earth 🙂

This week’s book is one of Doreen Virtue’s amazing reads.

The Miracles of Archangel Gabriel

archangel-gabriel

 

It was strange how I came across this book. I’ve read many Hay House books, over the years, although I am subscribed to Doreen Virtue’s newsletter, I’d never read any of her books. I’d watched some of her videos, and although I wanted to read her books, there was always something else on my list to read first.

However, this one particular day this book landed in my inbox – FREE! I didn’t download it at first, not because I didn’t want to, but I’d breezed over it, not taking much notice. (I have lots of inspirational, motivational messages coming through daily). But this email arrived again! And I automatically thought, ‘I need to read this’. I do truly believe in angels, but sometimes I need confirmation that I am meant to do certain things, so I may get one sign, but then I’ll look out for another.

This is a very powerful book, so much so that when I was reading it I felt it had been written for me. The unbelievable feeling that I was being protectively watched over while reading the book was so reassuring I didn’t want the book to end.

Are you wondering who Archangel Gabriel is?

Here’s a snapsnot from Doreen Virtue’s website – http://www.angeltherapy.com/archangel-gabriel

Gabriel and Mother Mary work closely together to minister to sensitive children. They guide conceptions, adoptions, pregnancies, births, and the raising of children. Because Gabriel is deeply concerned about children’s welfare, the archangel mentors responsible and loving adults who wish to help the young. If you feel called to work with children in any capacity, please ask Gabriel to help you.Gabriel helps earthly messengers such as teach­ers, counselors, writers, artists, and actors. This arch­angel acts like a Heavenly agent and manager who motivates you to polish your skills. Gabriel then opens the door of opportunity for you to work in your chosen career, and gives you a loving push through it if you hesitate.

It’s strange because we named our youngest daughter Gabriella, who is now 7 years old. Me and hubby were so drawn to the name but I wasn’t actually sure why at the time. I didn’t know of anyone with that name, and it wasn’t one of the popular names at the time. It hadn’t been a name that had been on our ‘girls names list’ for a lifetime. It came to us just before she was born.

At this time it wasn’t that I didn’t believe in Angels, I’d never really thought about it. My dad was an atheist, so although I felt like there was more to us than the ‘ape theory’, it wasn’t something we discussed, as it would be dismissed, laughed at or would even cause an argument because he was so strong-willed and adamant about his own theories and beliefs.

When I gave birth to Gabriella, I didn’t know what I know now about the Law of Attraction or Spiritual Awareness. At that particular time, we were going through a very bad time. A horrendous time. We’d had to move out of our house to live with my in-laws because my hubby’s business was crumbling, money was non-existent, we had insurmountable amount of debt and we were literally ‘just surviving’. Not ‘just living or existing’ – we were holding on for dear life!

I was 7 months pregnant when we had to move in with my in-laws (who are lovely and I was thankful we had them to help us) and our toddler, Lexi, who was 21 months at the time. It was a time that should have been filled with happiness because we were bringing a new life into the world, but it was dampened by so much negativity, pressure and fear.

When I was reading ‘The Miracles of Archangel Gabriel’ I know now he was with me at that awful time. Reading this amazing book was like confirmation that the things I’ve learnt over the years, in terms of how to change my thoughts and lead a better life, was because he was there guiding me. He was trying to get through to me then and I wasn’t really listening, to be honest it took a few years to understand, to listen and follow his guidance.

This book is confirmation for me that Archangel Gabriel is with me always. If I need help from the other angels, he helps me decide which one is needed. For example, Archangel Jophiel recently helped me declutter my house, so I could think straight. A thankful and awesome experience. It’s a wonderful feeling connecting with the angels. As Doreen Virtue will tell you in many of her books, the angels want to help us. It’s so powerful and so rewarding to feel that connection with them.

As I said, this is the first book I’ve read of Doreen Virtue, but I would like to thank her for writing this book. I will be reading more of her books. I’ve already finished a few more, which I’ll review on here over the coming weeks. They all make perfect sense. There is an element of common sense, which those who struggle with the theory of angels or spiritual guidance may find bizarre that common sense could even be mentioned when talking about angels, but trust me once you are in tune … it really is common sense. It makes sense. The world makes sense.

I urge everyone to read this book, whether you believe in angels or not, because this book will relate to many people. There will be things in your life that you believe are coincidences … reading books about angels, especially this book, you may start to realise that you are not alone. Just ask for help … and you will be surprised at how your prayers will be answered.

You can download ‘The Miracles of Archangel Gabriel’ here. I did mention it landed in my inbox for free, which was a bonus for me, and a sign that I needed this book. However, I wouldn’t hesitate to buy this book. It’s worth every penny and more 🙂

A – Z Inspirational Summary

Monday’s Inspirational Blog

Life has been passing me by … in a good way!

My girls have just gone back to school today; my eldest into YR5 and my youngest into YR3!

All I’ve heard, including from myself is …

‘Where on earth is time going?’

Do you feel like this? If the answer is yes, this could be a good thing or a bad thing! I know my life is going ever so quickly because I’m having fun. I was lucky enough to enjoy the summer holidays with my girls, working around them as much as I could, but I did lessen my workload. This isn’t a bad thing, because like today I’m rested, I’m fresh and ready to take the world by storm.

So I thought it would be a perfect time to have an overall inspirational blog 🙂

Last year I put together an A to Z of inspirational blog posts, so I thought this would be the perfect time to bring those together into one.
