Taking a long hard look at our reality…

Today, I am at a loss for words… I am sitting here thinking to myself and contemplating ways to grow out of this destruction.

How… How can I best be of service?

How can I make a difference? How can anyone person stand up in the face of danger and destruction, and make a difference?

After reading all the posts and looking at the videos… feeling the pain of each who has lost; I have to remind myself of the lessons learned I learned from the old masters, from religious tales and age-old scriptures – gnostic, dogma, doctrine and more.

“Shiva” known in the Hindu trinity as ‘The Destroyer’ is the one who creates, protects and transforms the Universe.

“Jesus” as the Son of God in Christianity also had to first be ‘destroyed‘ before He could rise up.

Aristotle, Lau Tso, Confucious, Augustine of Hippo, Socrates, Plato, Pythagoras, Kukai, Sun Tzu, Simone de Beauvoir, Allan Watts and so many more that could be mentioned… Even in the Pagan and Occult information; for that fact, other sections in the Christian Bible and the Quran – tells us that destruction is always followed by new growth.

As the phoenix rises from the ashes, a new cycle will always follow when the old one dies down.

As the grass fields are burned to black crips during the dry and cold winter months… after the first rains of spring, the new grass sprouts will change to field back to green again. Because that is what the grass is focused on in the Spring and Summer sessions. To flourish and grow taller and stronger as their roots are now set deeper than the years before.

But when the field did not burn to crips in the Winter months, it takes so much longer for us to see the new green through the old, dead brown-grey mass.

The Human Body and Spirit also abides by the same Laws of Nature. As we grow year after year, by Nature, there are cells and even ideas and thoughts that are shredded left behind and/or gets destroyed. Our Spirit goes through the same metamorphosis, as we grow and develop in our lifetime. Some beliefs and thoughts are retained while others are lost along the way, as they no longer served a purpose to us.

So, here I am sitting today, looking at the destruction – allowing myself to feel the emotions of pain, anguish, sadness, anger, disappointment, and yes, even fear… not just for myself, my family, my friends, my clients and acquaintances, but for both sides of this story. Reminding myself not to become the emotion but just allow me to experience it. Allowing myself to grow and learn from it so that I (and those I guide) can grow from this experience.

It might not seem as much, and in truth, it does not feel like much – but – once the fact and truth of this reality have settled in, after the freaky waves of confusion, fear, worry and even adrenaline has settled; it will be those who can stand as leaders, those who guide others, those who are not doing it for their own glory but for the betterment of their community, those who are not in the spotlight – they will be the ones who will be able to guide others to the love and light; to heal, to grow and to rise again out of the ashes…

So for now, I will allow my tears to flow, I will allow my heart to ache, I will allow my empathic side to experience this current situation… for tomorrow my analytical and logical side will better comprehend what needs to be done, to be able to move forward.

Children of our beloved country, South Africa, for young and old, for all the races and creeds, for all of you out there – my thoughts and prayers are with all!

In Sympathy, Empathy, Love, Gratitude and Grace,

Powerful Prayer to Purify Negative Karma (Guest Post)

Original post: Helen Wolitzer (2018)

How can we purify negative karma? Negativity can make our lives a real burden: we live without truly living, we see the negative side of everything and we do not expect anything good to happen to us. There are a lot of people who are like this: they look for a defect in each quality, a problem in each solution, expects the investment to go wrong, that the relationship goes down the drain.

If you usually think so, then stop it already. Negativity will get you nowhere; see below a powerful prayer to thank for all the good things life has given you so far, and thus you purify negative karma.

PURIFY NEGATIVE KARMA: DO NOT FORGET TO THANK

When we have positive thinking and get rid of negativity, we come to believe more in life and in ourselves, and achievements come closer to us. Therefore, after making the prayer of spiritual cleansing and being able to lead a lighter and more prosperous life, do not forget to thank. Thank God for life, for the positivity and fulfillment of your desires; gratitude will bring more good energies into your life.

“I thank you, O God, for my wonderful family and for all that you have done for us. Thank you, God, for this day when we all wake up healthy. Thank you, God, for your unconditional love for us. Thank you, God, for saving us.

Thank you, God, for the health, protection, balance, and perfection of our body and spirit. Thank you, God, for the harmony, peace, love, and happiness that reaches us. Thank you, God, for the abundance, prosperity, recognition, and for all your provisions in our lives. Thank you, God, for my wonderful guardian angel whom you have entrusted to me. Thank you, God, for being a light and emanating light in your name.

Thank you, God, for improving my faith, for my spiritual evolution, and for using me as an instrument. Thank you, God, for enabling me and making me a destroyer of the deeds of evil. Thank you, God, for making me master what I once had. Thank you, God, for giving me understanding and deliverance from what made me suffer. Thank you for removing negative thoughts from my mind.

I thank you, oh God, for giving me wisdom, courage, and deliverance. Thank you for having good thoughts. Thank you, God, for making me humble and acknowledging my own mistakes. Thank you, God, for making me act properly, and for making me say what is to be said. Thank you for my spiritual, personal, and professional fulfillment.

Thank you, God, for my emotional, affective, and sentimental fulfillment. Thank you for my blessed relationships and for my divine and timely meetings. Thank you, God, for the difficulties you have given me, for I know that through them you have made me evolve and conquer. Thank you for making me competent and responsible in all that I do.

Thank you, God, for all the opportunities you have given me. Thank you for making me recognize and enjoy these opportunities, just as they happen in my life.”

….

NB: Please note that you can replace the “God” word with whatever you prefer to call The Almighty of your beliefs.

Freedom: Tips and Life Hacks…

When it comes to planning out our lives there are a couple of tips and hacks that may assist you a great deal…

(Read to the end and find additional resources to assist you)

Here is an extract from the Day Designer blog with some of these tips and hacks…

Work backwards to prep for the day.

Wake up 15 minutes earlier. What can you do that will help you do that? Go to bed earlier. Prepare for your day the night before by deciding what’s for breakfast, setting out your clothes, and knowing what’s on the agenda. You’ll feel more eager to start your day!

Get started with the small stuff to gain momentum.

When you’re ready to start your day, check a few quick five-minute tasks off your list. This feeling of accomplishment will set you up for a more productive day!

Touch your planner before you touch your phone.

We always love this tip! Leave that phone on the charger until you’ve had some time to yourself and thought through the day ahead.

Review what matters most.

Write down your values, strengths, goals, priorities, and big projects. Review them on regular basis to keep them at the forefront of your brain!

Take breaks.

Taking a break will increase your focus and creativity! Get outside. Go for a walk. Call a friend. Enjoy your coffee without a screen in front of you. Refill your water. Or find something fun on your to-do list, such as shopping for a gift, and build that into your break!

Change your mindset to get back on track.

When you feel defeated, think of something you’re grateful for. When you feel overwhelmed, plan tomorrow. When you feel like quitting, think of the feeling you’re trying to achieve.

You can do this!

#FromZero2Hero – Master Planning and Living an Inspired Life!

Naturally: 12 steps to achieving your dreams

Original Blog: November 20, 2015 by Paulo Coelho

When Joseph Campbell created the expression “follow your blessing,” he was reflecting an idea that seems to be very appropriate right now. In “The Alchemist,” this same idea is called “Personal Legend.”

Alan Cohen, a therapist who lives in Hawaii, is also working on this theme. He says that in his lectures he asks those who are dissatisfied with their work and seventy-five percent of the audience raise their hands. Cohen has created a system of twelve steps to help people to rediscover their “blessing” (he is a follower of Campbell):

#1 Tell yourself the truth…

Draw two columns on a sheet of paper and in the left column write down what you would love to do. Then write down on the other side everything you’re doing without any enthusiasm. Write as if nobody were ever going to read what is there, don’t censure or judge your answers.

#2 Start slowly, but start.

Call your travel agent, look for something that fits your budget; go and see the movie that you’ve been putting off; buy the book that you’ve been wanting to buy. Be generous to yourself and you’ll see that even these small steps will make you feel more alive.

#3 Stop slowly, but stop.

Some things use up all your energy. Do you really need to go that committee meeting? Do you need to help those who do not want to be helped? Does your boss have the right to demand that in addition to your work you have to go to all the same parties that he goes to? When you stop doing what you’re not interested in doing, you’ll realize that you were making more demands of yourself than others were really asking.

#4 Discover your small talents

What do your friends tell you that you do well? What do you do with relish, even if it’s not perfectly well done? These small talents are hidden messages of your large occult talents.

#5 Begin to choose.

If something gives you pleasure, don’t hesitate. If you’re in doubt, close your eyes, imagine that you’ve made decision A and see all that it will bring you. Now do the same with decision B. The decision that makes you feel more connected to life is the right one – even if it’s not the easiest to make.

#6 Don’t base your decisions on financial gain.

The gain will come if you really do it with enthusiasm. The same vase, made by a potter who loves what he does and by a man who hates his job, has a soul. It will be quickly sold (in the first case) or will stay on the shelves (in the second case).

#7 Follow your intuition

The most interesting work is the one where you allow yourself to be creative. Einstein said: “I did not reach my understanding of the Universe using just mathematics.” Descartes, the father of logic, developed his method based on a dream he had.

#8 Don’t be afraid to change your mind

If you put a decision aside and this bothers you, think again about what you chose. Don’t struggle against what gives you pleasure.

#9 Learn how to rest.

One day a week without thinking about work lets the subconscious help you, and many problems (but not all) are solved without any help from reason.

#10 Let things show you a happier path 

If you are struggling too much for something, without any results appearing, be more flexible and follow the paths that life offers. This does not mean giving up the struggle, growing lazy or leaving things in the hands of others – it means understanding that work with love brings us strength, never despair.

#11 Read the signs

This is an individual language joined to intuition that appears at the right moments. Even if the signs point in the opposite direction from what you planned, follow them. Sometimes you can go wrong, but this is the best way to learn this new language.

#12 Finally, take risks! 

The men who have changed the world set out on their paths through an act of faith. Believe in the force of your dreams. God is fair, He wouldn’t put in your heart a desire that couldn’t come true.

So… are you going to take the lead and start your journey today?

Meaning – Coping with Stress by Thriving on Good Changes

Have you ever noticed yourself going to the icebox to get something to eat when you are all upset? You’re not alone there are many people just like you in this world. They are like you wishing they could do something to change that from happing to them but it isn’t going away what you can do to help you to change all of this from happing to you. You have to train yourself to do something different only you can do this.

What causes this to happen to people?

Most of the time this happens is when people are stressed out or being upset. The first thing they want to do is to run to the icebox and eat everything they see in it. Which isn’t healthy for you in the first place. You need to think way down inside your body and figure out what can be done about this habit. There are other ways to go, you just have to figure out what to do about it and do it.

What can one do to learn to redirect me?

Redirecting is hard for most of us to do but it can be done in time. You have to do it over and over again until your brain knows that is what you want it to do instead of going and binging on food. So when you feel you have to eat why not go and pick up a good book and read it. You’re going to have to make yourself do this, but you can do this if you want it bad enough. If you find that reading isn’t what is good for you at a time like this, then you will have to find something that will work for you. Meditation or breathing exercises are good alternatives to redirect to.

What are some things I can do to find what is good for me?

There really isn’t anything good to say about this other than you have to do some things on your own to find out what would be best for you what might be good for you may not be good for someone else. You might want to ask your friends what they do to give you some ideas. They may suggest something like taking a real hot bath or reading a good book. Some of them may find that exercising is a good way to release some of their stress. Pre-recorded Hypnosis or Subliminal therapy sessions and EFT exercises could provide you with release stress and could be done anywhere at any time, where you can take a time out.

There are many things that you may find works for you that don’t work for your friends. You might think that cleaning the house is a good way to get rid of stress that is okay too.

Why is stress so bad for me and why do, I need to get rid of it?

Stress is something that you might want to get rid of as soon as it hit you. Why is this?

This is because stress isn’t good for you or your health. It will cause you many problems if you don’t get rid of it as soon as you can.

Stress can be a cause of heart troubles, high blood pressure, out of control cholesterol, and can cause you to have some form of depression. If this happens then you will have to go to your family doctor and may have to take some kind of medication for it.

Therefore, you are better off if you can learn to control it before this happens. There is a way to do it you just have to have some willpower and set your mind to it and do it. Thrive to make satisfying changes. In the meantime, here is a gift from me to you …

8 Ways Meditation Can Benefit The Mind

Many people choose to meditate to eliminate the stress and emotional upset that life can bring. Having been practised for years, the benefits of meditation have been widely studied. For beginners, and those who thought that meditation was simply about being relaxed, here are 8 ways it can provide a positive impact on the mind.

1. It helps us to be in touch with our emotions

Meditation helps us to focus on the present, which supports our emotional control. While any emotions that we have been resisting can come to the surface during meditation, it can be uncomfortable to deal with in the short term. In the long term, however, we feel more connected to both our own feelings and to others.

Subliminal Messages: Fact or Fiction?

Get ready for a shock, a statement that might blow your mind and send you reeling in disbelief:

Subliminal messages work!

Despite some bad press to the contrary, evidence exists that proves subliminal messages can be an effective way to achieve a range of goals under certain controlled conditions. If you want them to work for you, here’s what you need to know:

  • Not all subliminal message delivery systems are created equally. Make sure you get yours from a reputable supplier who has been in business for a long time and has plenty of satisfied customers.
  • To make subliminal messages work in your favour, you need to be motivated to change. If you have a passionate desire to lose weight, to quit smoking, or to improve your productivity, for example, then subliminal messaging technology will help you achieve your goal.
  • Using subliminal messages to enable you to make changes in your life is not a cop-out. They’re just another tool you have at your disposal to break bad habits and encourage new behaviours.

Here’s another way to look at it. If subliminal messages don’t work, why is there so much information written about them? Why do so many companies provide subliminal audio and video sessions? Surely if those sessions were useless, people would stop buying them and the companies would go out of business. But that’s not what’s been happening.

What Hypnosis Can Do for You

Hypnosis – huh – what is it good for? Absolutely anything.

That might be a slight exaggeration, but the truth is that hypnosis is being used more and more regularly to treat a wide range of conditions. Apart from its well-known benefits to help people quit smoking, lose weight, gain confidence, and a host of other self-help issues, the practice is gaining wider acceptance in the treatment of illness and disease.

One of the problems with hypnosis is the word itself. It’s been hyped to the max in Hollywood movies and the like when in reality hypnosis is nothing like that. Hypnotizing someone by asking them to look into your eyes as you swing a pocket watch back and forth will be about as effective – and as successful – as asking your bank manager for a loan you don’t have to pay back.

3 Reasons Why You Should Meditate…

Remember the phrase no pain, no gain? Here’s a new one to get familiar with: sit back and blossom…

Meditation used to be thought of as a mysterious practice that only specially trained yogis could master. But with some 30 million Americans meditating on a regular basis, including the US Marines and members of the NFL, more and more people are tuning in to its power and potential than ever before.

So what makes meditation so attractive to people from so many different backgrounds and walks of life?
