Surround Yourself With Imagination Quotes To Help 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.

If you’d like to surround yourself with imagination quotes to remind you to believe in your dreams, you can visit my shop here

 

Play the imagination game … it’s fun! Visualise and manifest the wonderful, amazing life you deserve. Stay positive and use your imagination to bring positive things into your life. Remember to surround yourself with positive messages, as this works as a reminder to keep your thoughts uplifted and your imagination thriving.

Ten Products To Help You Achieve Your Dreams

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

It’s easy for life to take over and we forget about our dreams. We think they are too hard. There are obstacles etc. But if achieving big was easy, wouldn’t everyone be doing it. If you have that calling and that passion, then this is your sign that you need to be following that path. Stay true to yourself … remind yourself with the above products.

Ten Products That Will Help You Be Courageous

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! Let your mind drift to your dreams while you build your strength and courage as you create an array of beautiful colours on these 70 templates. Plus, it’s portable … take it with you wherever you go.

      

4. Notebook Journal – Strong and Courageous 

I’m a notebook lover. Most writers I know are also notebook lovers. If we see a notebook we are drawn too, we can’t help but buy it and stash it with our collection of random, unused notebooks. So I couldn’t resist showing you this beautiful notebook, that displays the awesome words, ‘Be 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, since is some great jewelry, as other you can get online, as these loose diamonds from Jacob Mercari that are also sold online. 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.

Ten Products That Will Help You Count Your Blessings

Do you feel you need help counting your blessings?

Do you wish to be more grateful and appreciate life?

But often feel you’re not sure what you have to be grateful for?

Below I’ve listed some awesome products that can help you, but before you look through them, why not try out the self-reflective therapeutic creative writing exercise, that will help you understand how blessed you truly are.

Plus, check out my ETSY SHOP … download & print some awesome Angel Quotes and many other Inspirational & Quirky Quotes

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When we have challenges in our lives, it can be difficult to look for the good. We feel as if everything we touch, say or do just isn’t right. If you know anything about the Law of Attraction, you’ll understand the more you feel these things the more upheaval and unhappiness you are attracting. So the best way to deal with any negativity is to look for the positive. Once you look for the positive, and there will be something positive about any challenge you are facing (a lesson learnt, a different path taken … you will find something if you look deep enough), you can turn anything around to be grateful for it occurring. Once you feel this gratitude, you will feel blessed. Writing a gratitude list can really help with counting your blessings, don’t forget to have a go at the self-reflective therapeutic writing exercise, this will help you immensely.

As promised, here are some of my favourite products, to help you on this awesome journey of life blessings.

1 The Blessings Jar: A Story About Being Thankful

Many adults often struggle with looking at life with an abundance of gratitude. If you are one of those adults, and you have children, you are influencing their attitude to life more than you probably realise. You are instilling an ungratefulness within them, a learned behaviour that needs to be unlearned so they can live a life of happiness and joy. Teaching them from a young age is a great way to instil positive thinking. Looking for the positive and being thankful for being, will help them lead a calmer life. Facing challenges head-on and looking for the lessons to be learnt, they will live a fuller life. This book is amazing at teaching your children the importance of gratitude.

     

The Smudging and Blessings Book: Inspirational Rituals to Cleanse and Heal

This book is full of rituals that will help cleanse your home and body. It’s a great way to bring some positivity into your life. Get rid of any negative energies.


      

3. Earth Blessings: Using Crystals For Personal Energy Clearing, Earth Healing & Environmental Enhancement

I love crystals. Different crystals can heal specific areas of your life. You may feel you need a certain area of your life to be healed; health, career, home, relationships etc. This book is excellent for helping you bring energy back into that particular area, it not only shows which crystals can help with the blessing of that area, but it offers exercises for 30 earth blessed crystals. You don’t need to be a crystal expert either, this book can help you if you are interested in knowing more about crystal healing.

     

4. Daily Blessings Cards: 44 Divine Guidance Cards and Guidebook

If you’ve read my other posts, you’ll know I’m a huge fan of Doreen Virtue. Doreen Virtue is amazing. Every book, cards, videos etc. she produces is simply inspiring. Her heart and soul goes into all her guidance material. These cards help us to appreciate daily blessings.

      

5. Count Your Blessings Jar Set 

This small blessings jar is simply gorgeous. If you’ve read through my website, downloaded on downloaded the FREE ‘make your own inspirational box’ from my website, you’ll totally understand why I love this. This beautiful ceramic jar comes with 10 kraft paper hearts where you write down what you are grateful for. That would be my only criticism of this product, is that I wish it came with more paper hearts … but the good thing is, you can make your own. You can simply cut out hearts from any kind of paper (colourful, textured or patterned) and make your own beautiful blessed hearts. This is one of those fabulous inspiring products that brings a great start to your day.

     

6. Pocket Jar of Good Luck / Blessings Pick Me Up Inspirational Jar

Again, just like the above jar of blessings, I can’t recommend these two products enough. The above is available in the UK. The below in the US. If you’ve already downloaded the free inspirational quotes guide, which will help you make your own inspirational jar, you’ll understand why I absolutely adore these products. They are both great to give that little bit of a blessed boost to your day. They will help steer negative thoughts into positive thoughts. They are both awesome gifts for yourself or for someone who needs a little bit of positivity and encouragement on feeling blessed.

7. Satya Nag Champa Blessings Incense Sticks – Box 12 Packs

I absolutely love incense. They are one of my favourite quick-fixes to ensuring my home offers a clean and fresh aroma. Incense is used for relaxation purposes in therapy and meditation. It is an aromatic biotic material that releases fragrant smoke when burned. They most definitely have a calming effect that flows throughout my home. I have some preferred incense scents, but my favourite is Jasmine. However, this box of incense releases a nice scent that helps a home feel blessed.

      

8. House Blessing Kits / Sage

Any kit that will bring happiness and peace to my home, I’m there … you should be too. If you feel your home is lacking ‘something’, you’re not sure what, (it could be happiness, peace, positivity) these kits will help to give your space a refresh of positivity that you need. Sage smudging is a traditional, spiritual way to eradicate negative energies. Scientific research actually shows that sage clears bacteria out of the air. This is a great way to give yourself and your home a spiritual clean.

 

9. Glass Blessings Gold Paperweight

How can this beautiful blessing paperweight not be adored? Although it is quite small, the stunning swirls of gold are deliciously divine. The way the light catches and the patterns interlink, this is a perfect tool to use to count your blessings. A reminder of all the things we have to be grateful for.

      

10. ‘May your troubles be less your blessings be more and nothing but happiness comes through your door’ sign

I’m a sign collector … yes, I realise that might sound extremely ‘geekish’ but I’ll own that one. I love signs. My home is full of vinyl inspirational signs across the walls, pictures shouting out positivity and a range of signs that give a boost of motivation or quirkiness. So I couldn’t help but be drawn to this sign about blessing and happiness. This sign is like a small, but very significant, prayer. A prayer that offers happy and joyful blessings upon one’s home. A perfect gift for your own home or as a thoughtful gift for a friend.

      

When you are not feeling very blessed, the above products can help you feel the blessings you need. It’s important to keep yourself motivated continuously. Put things in place that help you achieve goals and dreams. When you achieve these things. Count your blessings daily.

I encourage everyone to do this by surrounding themselves with positivity. The higher your positive vibrations, the higher your energy levels and the higher your spiritual power, the Law of Attraction will bring you more of the good stuff.

‘Positive messages throughout the day, help to keep the negative thoughts away’

Ten Angel Spiritual and Inspirational Books and Products to Help You on Your Journey of Life

Do you feel you need some help in connecting with the angels?

Do you find yourself wondering if they even exist?

Before you read through my favourite products that have helped me connect with the angels, why not try out the therapeutic creative writing exercise, that will help you connect mindfully and peacefully.

Plus, check out my ETSY SHOP … download & print some awesome Angel Quotes and many other Inspirational & Quirky Quotes

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once you start looking out for the signs and making sense of the world we live in, you will feel calmer in knowing that all will be okay. You just have to believe. Once you start truly believing you won’t be scared to ask for help from your angels. They want to help you. They want you to live the best life possible.

As promised, here are some of my favourite products, to help you on this amazing joyful journey.

I’m a huge fan of Doreen Virtue. She writes her books as if she is talking to you personally, as if the angels are talking to you, she glides through her books with such softness, not only does it make the read easy, but knowing the angels are with us makes sense.

So firstly, to get you started on your 2018 inspirational affirmations, I would highly recommend

1. Angel Affirmations 2018 CalendarDoreen Virtue’s, Day to Day Calendar gives powerful messages from the angels. I realise that we are halfway through the year, but this still a fab calender. Catch up on the previous affirmations, or read 2/3 a day … Every day you can be inspired and feel energised by reminding yourself that angels surround us always.

      

2. How to Hear Your Angels, by Doreen Virtue was one of the first books I read about angels. Doreen Virtue gives a detailed account of the Archangels and how we can call for their help at any time. There are great descriptions on which Archangel to call upon for help for whatever situation you are facing. This book shows how the angels can help with any area of our lives and how to ask for their help. This is another book I keep close, for wherever an issue arises that I’m unsure of how to deal with. There is always an angel waiting to help.

      

3. Angels: How to See, Hear and Feel Your Angels, by Kyle Gray. Another of my favourite authors. Kyle was spiritual from a very young age. He uses his special gift to bring divine love to others. He shows people how to connect with angels in the softest of ways, his kind approach, even within his writing will draw you in. He uses little stories to show how asking for help from the angels works and mini exercises to show you how to connect. 

     

 

If you would prefer to listen to the books you can download Amazon’s Audible Membership here.

      

I love audible. I love listening when I’m driving or when I’m walking. I highly recommend signing up for the membership. I listen to novels and motivational books through audible, there’s something about walking in nature and listening to inspirational words.

4. Crystal Angels Oracle Cards: A 44-Card Deck and Guidebook

     

When it comes to understanding that the angels are always with us, this can be difficult at first, as we rush through life at top speeds that we forget to take two minutes to breathe and remember that, in the words of the wonderful late Louise Hay, ‘All is well.’ So I advise you carry an angel or wear an item that reminds you that the angels are with you, always. It will not only relax you in times of stress, but you will become accustomed to feeling spiritual energies around you, always.

5. Silver Sterling Angel Wings Pendant Necklaces 

One of my favourite angel accessories is my own angel wing pendant. If you’d like a magical pendant of your own, I adore this beautiful Cuoka Silver Jewellery is simply stunning, it’s available in the UK. The stunning diamond wing below is available in the USA.

6. Silver Angel Bracelets

Joma Jewellery Bracelet – A Little Angel (UK)

Katie Loxton Bracelet – A Little Guardian Angel (USA)

I love Joma Jewellery, (Katie Loxton Jewellery USA) I have a collection of their bracelets. I love their simple but elegant cards that display meanings of each particular bracelet. So when I saw this beautiful angel wing bracelet, yes, you got it, I knew I had to have it. There’s something about having an angel on your wrist that makes you feel as if they are holding your hand.

7. Angel Crystal Suncatchers for Home or Car
How can you not love these beautiful angel suncatchers? Perfect for your home or car.
 8. Opal Stone Carved Angel, Opalite Pocket Guardian Angel Gemstone Angel Gift, Reiki Healing Crystals Stone, Psychic-Spiritual Gift

Zoom In On Life & Take Away The Positives – A to Z Inspirational Blog; Z is for Zoom with Quotes and Therapeutic Writing

A-Z Inspirational Journey 

This week’s inspirational word

Z IS FOR ZOOM

 

When I started searching for positive Zoom Quotes, I was surprised there was quite so many, in fact, I became so wrapped up in my search, I spent hours nodding away, agreeing with them and forgetting to put them in my posts, so I’ve selected three of my favourites.

So in the words of, Cynthia Lewis, baby steps count. Keep going. The experts, the specialists, the people who you follow, the people who inspire you … this didn’t happen overnight. Being certified in the Law of Attraction, I’m fully aware what we put out there comes back to us. I believe in the magic of miracles, I believe the universe totally has our back. However, I also know that we are put on a certain path to follow a certain passion. But this passion may need training. We need to learn new skills to enhance our talents. So when you see others succeeding … believe you too, will succeed. Those who you look up to once started out at the beginning too. The universe wants you to be successful, so hold onto that feeling and know that if you follow your heart, magic will happen.

Ask yourself, if you were to zoom there? What would you learn along the way?

Sometimes what holds us back is being judged. Being judged by others. We allow this to hold us back. However, don’t believe that those who you follow and admire didn’t have those fears too. They just chose to ignore them. We never really know what is going on in another person’s head. Plus, usually, there isn’t much chance to zoom in and examine other people. We can study their ways, we can learn from them, but we often seek the facts. If you were to zoom in on the ‘nitty gritty’, it actually may make you feel better, because everyone has a story to tell.

Your story may be a story that will help others. I believe things do happen for a reason, I believe we sometimes have to zoom in on our own lives and ask ourselves, what can we learn from this? Even when life slaps us in the face, I believe there is a lesson to learn. The universe is responding to our thoughts, so it’s important we monitor them. So when life throws us a curveball, zoom in and ask why … Could this be part of your story? Will your story help others? If you zoom in on your own life, but embrace the good and focus on the positive, you will soon begin to understand the why!

In this week’s therapeutic writing exercise is to help you zoom in on your life and find what lessons you have learnt or are learning.

This is a free-writing exercise. Think about a situation that has happened that you weren’t entirely happy about. You may be going through a struggling time at the moment. Free-write about this.

Now zoom in on this situation and ask yourself …

  • Why do you think this happened?
  • Where were your thoughts at the time?
  • What can you take from the situation?
  • Can you change it? If not, then look at moving on. If you can’t change something, then look at what you can learn from it.
  • Even if you can change it, ask yourself … what can you learn from it?
  • Zoom in on the positivity you can take from the situation … there will be something!

Love & happiness to you always

Victoria xx

Use Your Imagination To Live The Life You Dream About: A to Z Inspirational Blog; I is for Imagination with Imagination Quotes and Therapeutic Writing

A-Z Inspirational Journey 

This week’s inspirational word

I IS FOR IMAGINATION

We use logic every day. We live our lives logically. That’s the way the world works. That’s what we’ve had brainwashed into us since we realised all the make-believe playing we did as a child was just that, play! It was us using our imagination to create a whole new world. More than likely you were told that imagination is for children. As we grow out of childhood, the play stops. As teenagers, we want to be just that, ‘teenagers’, we don’t want to labelled immature and childish, so as we grow older we stop using our imaginations as much.

We become adults and more often than not, in the daily routine of life, we forget how to use our imagination. We get caught up in chores, tasks and deadlines, we forget to use our inner child to bring to us what we want from life. We might have children and watch them use their imaginations to play, we feel nostalgic and, maybe a little sad, because we think, if only life could be all imagination and play. As adults, we forget this is one of the key ingredients to living a happier more fulfilled life.

Here she goes again, I hear you saying, with her fluffy view on life … I love it if you did say that. I do have a very fluffy view on life. Proudly so. Life is full of joy and happiness. When I think about how wonderful life is, I feel all marshmallowy inside. I’m warmed by the miracles and magic that have happened in my own life and I know that’s why I have to write these blog posts, to get you to understand the fulfilment you can have in your own life, if you simply imagine it.

As I always tell people, I haven’t always been so bubbly and positive … gosh, in my early twenties, I was probably the biggest mood-hoover roaming the earth! But it is amazing what can happen when you start coming from a place of love, gratitude and joy. Amazing things happen.

The Law of Attraction works. It is always working whether you have positive or negative thoughts, it is working and it is delivering back to you those thoughts. So just imagine, if you could imagine something and make it happen!

Have you heard the saying, ‘Fake it, until you make it’? Think about this, while you’re faking it, you’re imagining living the life you want. So whether you want to run your own business, be healthier or have more ‘me-time’ – if you start to imagine these things are happening. They soon will. It sounds simple. If it is that simple, why isn’t this working for everyone?

The thing is, it is working, but people are not believing either in themselves, their ideas, their imagination or all of these things. So the Law of Attraction is working … if you don’t truly believe in this imaginary world then you’re telling the universe it is imaginary. You’re not allowing yourself to be deserving of this imaginery world. Your imagination is so powerful, but a true core belief has to come with it.

The Law of Attraction works simply; what you think about you attract. So use your imagination to attract the life you want … the life you deserve.

Imagine a life full of laughter, joy and happiness … sit back for five minutes and imagine yourself in this state of euphoria.

Now let’s use this week’s therapeutic writing exercise to help you get there;

Simply use the free-writing technique to answer this question; (just write, don’t stop writing until you have poured out onto the paper the life you wish to imagine).

How To Live With A Grateful And Loving Heart When Times Are Hard – A to Z Inspirational Blog; H is for Heart with Heart Quotes and Therapeutic Writing

A-Z Inspirational Journey 

This week’s inspirational word

H IS FOR HEART

‘Love’ is one of my favourite words … once you start living a life of love, rather than, jealousy, anger, hatred etc. you realise how wonderful life can be. So opening up your heart and letting the world in, is the greatest gift you can give yourself.

The best way to open your heart is to look at all the things you have to be grateful for. There is so much in your life that you could be taking for granted; your family, your health, your job … Once you start realising how blessed you are, your heart will naturally sore.

Life, for myself, has not always been easy. There have been devastating family fallouts, to a point I didn’t know how to get out of bed on a morning. Over time I’ve learned to live with the situation, as much as I didn’t want to. I’ve learned to forgive even when the other person is no longer around me. I’ve learned that my heart is strong. My giving heart has allowed me to experience other forms of love from friends who have become my family.

Now don’t get me wrong, at one point in my life I felt so alone. You made have heard the saying, ‘there’s a difference between being alone and being lonely.’ You can be in a crowd with thousands of people and still feel lonely. When you have lost that connection with the outside world, your ability to feel with your heart becomes extremely hard. I remember feeling so angry.  This anger didn’t last a day or a week, it lasted for years. It was like a disease inside of me, I couldn’t seem to get myself out of this ball of fury.

If you know much about the Law of Attraction, you’ll understand when I say I just seem to have more and more things to be angry about. It was at this time that a friend of mine introduced me to ‘The Secret.’ The secret changed my life. Since then I have read and learned so much more about the Law of Attraction, the universe, angels and God. There is an indescribable peace within my soul now. Since I lived my life coming from a place of love and having a generous heart, guess what? Yes … I’ve received more love back than I could ever have imagined possible.

So now, whatever the situation or circumstance that years ago would have had me seething, I give my heart and come from a place of love. This didn’t happen overnight. It did take practice to think with my heart. To practice living my life with all my heart. To come from a place of pure love. If you struggle with this, I always say, start with gratitude. Once you start practising gratitude daily you will automatically start coming from a place of love. Today, I wouldn’t know how to live any other way. Living through love and giving my heart always, is so natural to me now. Now, don’t get me wrong there are times when I get upset, of course there is, but the bounce back time to love, understanding and pure heartfelt gratitude is much quicker. I can turn this negative emotion around in seconds. Wouldn’t you love to be able to do that?

Life is full of wonder. Once you open your heart to this amazing prospect you will understand how your heart can be filled with joy. Having a grateful, giving and non-judgemental heart will open you up to an amazing life of warmth.

There are so many wonderful things happening in life and around us, feeling these precious things with our heart and soul is the most amazing experience. Once you start to live from your heart, from a place of love you will receive more love … your heart will sore.

Try it this week, when someone upsets you, stop and think. Don’t just shout or confront them back. Use your heart to give. Breathe deeply and imagine wrapping your arms around this person and smothering them with love. This doesn’t mean that people can walk all over you. The exact opposite, because once you come from a place of love, once you use your heart to make your life decisions, you will find that some people are no longer in your life. We attract our tribe … meaning you attract those in your life who are similar. So if you see something in someone you don’t like, have a little self-analyse of yourself and your own behaviours. It is time to no longer be a mood-hoover, it’s time be the loving, kind, giving individual you were put on this earth to be.

In week’s therapeutic writing exercise let’s look at gratefulness;

1/ Write a list of all the things you are grateful for in your life. What makes your heart swell? Kids, a cosy home, friends, family etc. Really think about all the good in your life.

2/ Write a list of the things you would like to change, at each point, ask yourself why. Write down what you can do to change it. What is your heart telling you to do?

If you feel these questions are too particular, just write … write about your grateful heart. How can you make your heart more grateful? How can you make your heart swell and sore? What can you do differently? Writing with a loving heart is a great way to start understanding your grateful heart.

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