How many times have you let another driver ruin your day?

How many times have you been on the commute to work or the school run and allowed the actions of another person to put you in a bad mood?

Do you feel ‘slighted’ when you let someone out of a turning and they don’t say thank you?

Does your ‘good deed’ then turn into a feeling of resentment that you let such an inconsiderate, bad mannered person out instead of just going by and leaving them stuck?

What right do we have to feel affronted that they didn’t say thank you?

It is not our God given right that when we do a good deed the other person should show their gratitude?

Who are we to judge?

Gratitude, who rather the showing of gratitude is a man made courtesy. We, as humans, have programmed ourselves to think that if we do something for another then they should show gratitude by saying “thank you”. Yes, I agree, it is something that I feel not enough people do, and as a society we should strive to ‘bring back’ good manners. However, it is not our right! We have no right to expect a show of gratitude from another person. Just because they did not put their hand up as they drove off to say thank you, does not mean that they weren’t grateful.

Also, do we do good deeds to receive thanks and praise? If so then the deed is not so good after all. It is merely a means to us making ourselves feel better, hence we feel slighted when we do not receive the gratification we feel we deserve. Good deeds are for the benefit of the other person, making their lives a little easier or better, not for us to receive an ego boost for being such a ‘good’ person!

If you give with an open heart and expect nothing in return then the universe will reward you. That is reward enough. Do not allow another’s actions to ruin your good intentions. Getting angry by a persons lack of ‘manners’ only results in you having a bad day. Once you allow the resentment of your good actions to seep into your thoughts then you stop noticing the good in everything else around you and instead focus on the perceived mindless, inconsiderate actions of your fellow man.

The supermarket is a classic example of what I’m talking about. How often do we step aside to let someone by with their trolley only for them to walk past without even looking in our direction, let alone being polite enough to say ‘thank you’ or even send a smile our way! We then spend the rest of the visit grumbling to ourselves about the ‘lack of good manners now days’. I bet some of you have even then gone out of your way to obstruct the other persons path when you’ve met them in the next isle, making them wait until you are good and ready to get out of the way??? Come on, we’ve all done it lol.

Here in the UK we are especially fond of manners. Some may say we are even a bit OTT when it comes to having good manners. We get frustrated when we are on holiday at others apparent lack of manners, when in fact they just come from a different country and culture with different traditions and etiquette. They are not being bad mannered, we just perceive them to be because they don’t fit into our ideal behaviour.

I have to admit that in recent times there is definitely a rapid decline in social etiquette and politeness. Everyone seems to be in far too much of a hurry too have time for the simple things in life like please and thank you. Now there is an expectation that it is our right to be let out of turnings or into a lane on the motorway. We think people should get out of our way in the supermarket isle. What right do they have to block our path? What happened to common courtesy and living harmoniously with one another?

I guess that the only way to change things is to lead by example. Carry on with your good deeds, give generously, but give without expectation. Give for the sake of giving and making another person happy. This act in itself is thanks enough.

Image result for doing a good deed quote

So the next time you let someone out while driving along or move aside in the supermarket isle, don’t feel despondent or resentful if the other person doesn’t show appreciation, just go about your business knowing that your small act of gratitude will come back to you when you need it most. The universe is always listening and responding to our actions.

25b6f4ea2434e4dba408ba82a68cbdf4

One final thought. We never know the lives or circumstances of another, therefore we cannot judge their actions. We also don’t know how much our small act of kindness may have changed their whole day. Think instead of giving as a small act of love and your heart will be filled with joy and you will be eternally rich.

Love and happiness

Law of attraction · Law of Compensation · Manifesting · Spirituality

Are you pushing money away?

Have you ever wondered why the Law of Attraction doesn’t seem to be working for you? Why you are still struggling with your bills and never seem to have enough money?

If you answered yes, then let me ask you some more questions.

How do you think, talk and act when it comes to money?

Are you constantly thinking about how much things cost and telling yourself you can’t afford them?

Do you avoid certain shops because you think you can’t afford what’s for sale inside?

Are you watching the letterbox waiting for the ‘dreaded’ post to come and bring you more bills?

Yes?

Then you need to stop that right now!

By thinking, and acting, this way all you are doing is inviting more lack into your life! That’s right. You’re sitting at home sending out lovely little invites to the universe for all the horrible things you don’t really want in your life!

It’s like inviting your worst enemy to your birthday party, complaining that you had a horrible time because they were so mean to you all night and then inviting then to your next party!

Consider this, if you change your mindset and start to look at money differently what’s the worst that can happen? Your life stays the same and nothing changes? But seriously, that’s not going to happen! Things will change. you will change. Your life will change. Maybe not in a…..’OMG I won a gazillion, trillion pound on the lottery’ type way, but it will definitely change for the better.

The law of attraction sends back to you what you think about, what you talk about and what you feel. The law of attraction doesn’t know you don’t want more debt or more bills, all it knows is that you keep sending out signals of lack and it just sends you more of the same back. The Universe is thinking…….

“Hey this girl/guy must be really happy with the way things are for them. They can’t stop putting in requests for struggle. Well, let’s send her/him more of what they want!”

You can see where I’m going with this.

To get more money flowing into your life you have to think more abundantly!

Below are some pointers to help you on your way:

  1. STOP THINKING ABOUT LACK! Thinking this way only serves to attract more things into your life that cause feelings of lack or not having enough. Instead focus on feelings of abundance and having more than enough.
  2. STOP TALKING ABOUT NOT HAVING ENOUGH! Everything we talk about increases the vibration we send out to the universe. When we talk about lack we are literally putting in a verbal order for more of the same. It’s like going up to the drive-through and asking for “more debt please!” ER, NO!
  3. START THINKING ABOUT MONEY IN A POSITIVE WAY. When you think about money, think about it in terms of having more than enough to go round. Think about it as if you can buy whatever you want, whenever you want. Think of money as something that you don’t need to worry about and something that is ever flowing effortlessly into your life.
  4. SAY “I CAN AFFORD TO BUY WHATEVER I WANT”. When you see something you like, say to yourself “I can afford that.” Don’t question it, just know that you can have anything you desire.
  5. YOU DESERVE IT! Get it into your head that you deserve to live a prosperous and abundant life. It’s nothing to be ashamed of and it’s nothing more than you deserve.
  6. IT’S MINE ALREADY. You must believe that you can have anything you want. You must believe you have it already. Having thoughts and feelings that it is not here yet will only attract more not having it yet. You must think, and feel, like it’s already here and the universe will conspire to ensure it comes.
  7. HAVE GRATITUDE FOR WHAT YOU ALREADY HAVE. This is so important! To attract more into your life you must show gratitude for what you already have. If you look at what you have with feelings of it not being enough then you will never have enough. I saw this on one of my apps today and thought you might like it.

“Observe a person’s car and you will learn something about it’s owner. The cars that are sparkling clean are evidence that their owners appreciate them. The cars that are very dirty and messy are not being appreciated. One person is attracting even better cars, the other is attracting lesser cars. Appreciation for the things you have is using the law of attraction intelligently.”

  1. GIVE GENEROUSLY. Give what you can. Be it your time, your services, give love & appreciation, give your unwanted items to charity, even if you just put £1 in a charity collection or give it to a homeless person or busker it starts the flow of money.
  2. ALWAYS GIVE MORE IN TERMS OF VALUE than another can give you and you will always be rewarded. For example; I sold my daughters old bike today. It was in very good condition and a very good bike. I sold it for a very small price, much less than it was worth, but it was enough for me and what I wanted the money for. The lady who bought the bike, however, bought it for her daughter. The bike will last her many years and means that she can join with her family in regular bike rides and outings that she has struggled with up until now as her old bike was not suitable. Therefore I gave more in terms of value than I received in money. I know the universe will reward me.

The sooner you change your mindset, the sooner your financial situation will change. I know it’s hard to change the way you have been programmed to think but it is possible and the power is in your hands. You can start today to change your life for the better. The more you think of money in terms of abundance, the more money will flow effortlessly into your life and the more you will have to continue to think this way.

Say affirmations:

“I have more than enough money.”

“I love money and money loves me.”

“Everything I need comes to me easily and effortlessly.”

“Every day I am more and more abundant.”

“I attract more money every day.”

“I have more than enough to go around.”

Try it for yourself. Not only will you feel better about your current situation because you will be focusing on the things you have in your life already that you are grateful for but you will notice the universal shift as your circumstances begin to change.

Try making notes every time money comes into your life. You will be surprised at how quickly it all mounts up when you really start to take notice. If you get a money off voucher at the supermarket or find some loose change down the side of the sofa, maybe a friend will treat you to a coffee or you get something ‘buy one get one free’. All these manifestations of money being gifted to you by the universe add up and it’s surprising by how much when you really start to take notice. The more you notice and show gratitude, the more will flow into your life and before you know it money will no longer be something to worry and stress about, it will be something the flows effortlessly into your life in greater and greater quantities each day.

Let me know how you get on.

Love and happiness

Law of attraction · Life Purpose · Spirituality

Time to stop procrastinating and take action!

Whether you believe it or not the universe is always sending us messages and guidance. Whether we choose to follow that guidance is up to us. It is so important that we are aware of the messages being sent to us, they are guiding us on the path to our life purpose.

I am a strong believer in synchronicity and intuition and think it is so important to pay attention to everything that is going on around us. Everything, and I mean everything, happens for a reason. We are either meant to learn something from a situation or person or teach another person a lesson to help them on their own path.

We are being guided constantly to make decisions and take actions that lead to our life purpose. When we fail to see the signs or hear the messages we will continue to be sent more signs and messages until we finally get the hint!

I have been procrastinating a lot recently (a shameful trait of mine I’m afraid to say) and I have been sent many signs to push me in the right direction but I keep ignoring them and making excuses as to why I can’t follow the path I am being guided towards. Mostly through fear. Oh the dreaded fear. The stumbling block of so many of us. I often teach people to ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’, a great book by the wonderful Susan Jeffers, but how often do I ignore my own advice?

Well today I have had another ‘gentle shove’ but this time from myself!

This morning I decided to read my cards. I haven’t done them in a while and just felt the need. I chose my guardian angel cards as they are so beautiful and always fill me with a sense of comfort, even when the messages are not what I was expecting, or wanting, to hear. Below are the three cards I pulled this morning:

I really don’t think the message could be much clearer, do you lol?

This is not the first message I have received, I have been trying to ‘ignore’ the others. Why? Because I am a big scaredy cat! I have very little faith in my own abilities and if I’m honest I am terrified of rejection and ridicule!

There I said it! I’m scared. I’m frightened that the world will take one look at my writing and laugh in my face! “Who does she think she is, trying to be an author?”, “Who would want to read that trash?”. You get the picture. This definitely stems back to childhood and a demon I have not yet slayed. I’m working on it though. Every day I face another fear and walk right up to it, look it in the eye and walk right on by, sticking two fingers up as I go! This is just another hurdle I have to jump.

So because of the cards I have pulled I have decided it is time to stop procrastinating and get my arse in gear!

I have already started my book (some time ago if I’m honest) and have now decided to set aside some time each day to work on it. I have begun to put together some of the ideas I have jotted in various notebooks around my house and have made the choice to commit to my life purpose instead of just showing an interest in it.

I will let you know how the progress is coming along and will continue to keep you updated with my Law of Attraction journey.

I wholeheartedly believe in having a life purpose and in the Law of Attraction. I believe in intuition, synchronicity and divine guidance.

Watch this space……………….

My learning journey. The story so far….

I started this blog to journal my Law of Attraction learning journey. I have learnt so much over the last few months, both about the Laws of the Universe and myself. I believe I still have a long way to go in ‘cracking’ this Law of Attraction malarkey but I am certainly well on my way.

I have learnt that happiness most definitely comes from within. Money, success, adoration, material possessions, none of that can make you truly happy. Sure all these things can help and they do make life a lot more comfortable but they do not make you happy in the literal sense.

“True happiness does not mean that everything is perfect. It means you have decided to look beyond the imperfections.” – Unknown

To find happiness in life we must first look within ourselves and find happiness there. We must learn to love ourselves for who we are, warts and all! Only when we can love ourselves and be happy in our own skin and in our own company can we be truly happy in our lives.

Image result for to be friends with yourself

Never has a truer word been said. We should never look to others to make us happy or feel good about ourselves. In doing so all we are doing is setting ourselves up for disappointment because sooner or later, whether intentionally or unintentionally we will be let down or hurt by the other person and the feelings of neglect, rejection, disappointment, hurt, anger, loneliness and resentment will rear their ugly head. Relying on someone else to increase our energy is no good for us or them. We must learn to build our own energy through inner peace and true connection with God and the Universe.

Finding happiness within sometimes means facing the demons buried in the far reaches of our subconscious minds. The reason we seek material pleasures to make us happy is often due to a feeling of lack somewhere else in our lives. We tend to collect trophies and use them like comfort blankets to protect us from what is the real problem. This has been the hardest part of my learning journey and something I am still working through. I have come such a long way in such a short space of time. I have unearthed demons I did not even know existed anymore they were so far buried. I have begun to find inner peace. I have learnt to connect to God and the universal energy that is all around us. My trouble is staying connected. Not letting negative vibrations enter my energy field. Not letting other people zap my energy and influence my state of mind. It is so easy to slip back into old habits and revert back to old paradigms. It’s a behaviour we have to unlearn. It takes practice and perseverance. It takes courage and strength.  Most importantly it takes belief and faith!

Since I started this journey I have manifested better relationships with my friends and family. I have seen people leave my life who I thought would be in it forever and I have seen the true colours of their soul. I have learnt valuable lessons, which is why those people were sent to me in the first place, I just didn’t see the lesson straight away!

Image result for stop punishing yourself about things in the past

I have learnt that it is OK to love myself. It is also OK not to love myself sometimes as long as I accept that it’s OK, learn from it and move on.

Image result for stop punishing yourself about things in the past

I have learnt that the past is in the past, it is no longer reality, it is merely a memory, a memory that cannot be changed or undone and so it is not worth worrying about. What’s done is done, it’s been and gone, I survived, no-one died, the world did not end, forget about it!

It serves no man to punish himself over things that have passed. 

I have managed to manifest a healthy bank account. I have gone from living in my overdraft to having plenty of money and not having to worry about how I’m going to pay my bills. I’m not saying I’m rolling in money (far from it) but life is certainly a lot more comfortable now then it was six months ago. I don’t worry about money anymore. I have learnt that the more you give the more comes back to you. This goes for everything in life. Money, happiness, love, joy, kindness.

The most important thing I have learnt on my Law of Attraction learning journey is that we are all here to serve God and one another. To fulfil our life purpose and find true happiness we must look within. We must follow the inner guidance of God and the Universe. We must commit our lives to the service of others. Spreading love and joy, happiness and abundance to all who we meet.

Take notice of all the people and circumstances in your life. Watch for the lessons and synchronicities Listen to your intuition.

Find your inner happiness and you will find the source of everything you desire. Your life will overflow with joy and you will be abundant in every way imaginable!

Love and happiness

Make the Choice, to take the Chance, to make the Change!

Some of you may know that I have been off work for a while with a bad back. It’s a problem I’ve had for many years. Usually my back ‘goes’, I rest up for a few days them go back into work and basically just work through the pain. This time, however, I have not been able to do that. I’m not sure if it’s because I am a little older or if I have just done too much damage in the past, not giving my body time to heal but it is certainly taking it’s time this time around!

The positive side to having had so much time off work is that I have really had time to reflect on what is important in life and what triggers my stress and negative energy. I have really noticed that, although I have been in a lot of pain, I have not been stressed out at all. I have not been screaming at my kids in the morning when they take aeons to get ready. I have not been moaning at my husband for not hanging his clothes up and using the floor as a clothes horse. I have not been having palpitations worrying if I have forgotten to do something. I have not been waking up at night because my brain is in overdrive thinking about all the things I have to do tomorrow. In short, I have now realised that I need to change my job, and fast!

All the great speakers and motivational experts say the same thing…….you must take a chance to make a change.

The three ‘C’s’……..

You must make the CHOICE, to take the CHANCE, if you want anything in life to CHANGE!

How many times have we heard this. We know it to be true but when you’re stuck in the rat race of 9 – 5 with a mortgage, bills to pay and kids to feed and clothe it’s not that easy to see a way out. Many of these great experts offer opportunities and programmes you can sign up to or join, most cost money that the likes of you and I don’t have.

Bob Proctor said that you don’t have to know how to do it, you just have to do it.

Below are some pointers to help you on your way:

  • Set your mind on the goal you want to achieve.
  • Think about your reasons for wanting that goal. Is it what you truly want or is it just a five minute wonder?  You need to be 100% committed to the outcome you want to achieve or you will fall at the first hurdle and lose interest.
  • Don think about the ‘How’s’ just focus on the end goal.
  • Don’t give up at the first stumbling block or hurdle.
  • Remember failure is only a lesson in how to do something better.
  • Feel the fear and do it anyway!

Being at home has made me realise that my job, although rewarding on so many levels, is not what I want to be doing with my life. I want to help people, for sure, this is what I do now, but I don’t want to work for ‘The Man’ any more. The ambiguous nature of my job is so frustrating. People making decisions about how I do my job that have no idea how it will affect the people I am supposed to be helping or how difficult it may actually make my job. The caring nature of the job is rapidly being removed and replaced with something clinical and devoid of emotion. I am expected to tuck away my emotions and feelings and perform as a robot without questioning the motives or effect of change. Often, when change happens, it is reversed shortly afterwards because it does not work or fit. To and fro, back and forth, the job is ever evolving, sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse. It’s the lack of consultation or involvement with the ‘staff’ that frustrates me the most. Things could be so much simpler, change could happen more seamlessly and without such disruptive consequences. Change is good and a necessary part of life but consultation and working together is the key to ‘good’ change.

People matter!

In this ever changing world so much is about the pound note, cost, profit margins, budgets. When did money become more important than life?

God did not create this universe for us to wallow in the shadow of currency. We were put here to love and nurture each other and our beautiful planet.

Currency is important, I get that, we have made it that way and until the day comes when we realign ourselves with God and the Universe that is how it must be. But, we all have a choice, we can continue with our mundane 9 – 5 rat race or we can make the choice, to take the chance, to make the change! 

I know I want to help people be the best they can be. Helping others is what I am meant to do. It’s in my bones and the very nature of me. I know that is why I get so frustrated at work. I am restrained by the ‘powers that be’ and the confines of my job. I am unable to help those who need it most and it breaks my heart. Frustration and an ever increasing workload, limited time and resources all result in one unhappy and stressed me!

Time for a change. Time to be brave and take a chance. I know I have a choice. My choice, nobody else’s.

So why does ‘the fear’ keep rearing its ugly head?

Love and happiness

Life Purpose · Spirituality

Purpose

WHAT IS YOUR LIFE PURPOSE?

How often do I ask myself this question. Some days I feel clear about exactly what I am here to do. Others I feel totally lost. Most of the time I just fumble through day to day life with no real direction or sense of purpose.

Without purpose we can still lead happy lives. If we are content to just float from one day to the next, going with the flow. The problem with having no purpose is that there is always, ALWAYS, something missing. We don’t know what it is. But there is always that nagging feeling in the back of our minds that we are missing something.

WE WERE ALL SENT HERE WITH A PURPOSE!

Each and every one of us came into this world with a purpose. Before we were born we knew what we were coming here to do. What our ‘mission’ was. We had a clear plan set out in our heads. Our life purpose is a small part of a bigger picture to create a world of love and peace. Before we are born we know what our part in this ‘world vision’ is. However, as soon as we are born we become unconscious and we forget what we were born to do. It is up to us to wake up and remember our PURPOSE!

It never leaves us. It is always there in our subconscious mind. All we have to do is remember.

HAVE YOU EVER HAD THAT NAGGING FEELING?

Have you ever had that nagging feeling, deep in your gut, that you should be doing something? I distant memory that you can’t quite recall. An intuition to do something or learn something or call someone? That’s your life purpose trying to surface. You are being guided by God or the Universe (whatever you want to call it) to wake up and remember. You are being guided towards the right path.

What we do may seem insignificant in the grand scheme of things but each and every one of us has a small part to play. Each of us has a gift that works perfectly with the next persons to bring into play God’s master plan for His beautiful planet and all the wonderful inhabitants that reside here.

Why does the end of the world have to be some apocalyptic tragedy? Can the end of the world not just be the end of life as we know it. Did God not promise that we would all someday life in a world of love and peace and harmony? A world without war or hate or pain.  Why can it not be about a spiritual awakening?

ASK FOR HELP TO REMEMBER YOUR LIFE PURPOSE

If, like me, you are still unsure of your life purpose ask for Gods/the universe’ guidance. Ask for a sign that you are on the right path. Follow your intuition. Do not ignore those nagging feelings that you should be doing something. Follow your joy for this is a sure sign you are on the path that is right for you.

Take the first step and you will soon see that you are guided to things and people who support your purpose. The more you move along your journey the more confident you will feel and the more you will remember about your pre birth vision and it’s significance in the wider picture of a new ‘world vision’.

I have spoken before about the Celestine Vision and the series of books that were written on this subject. The second book in this series talks more about a ‘world vision’ and how we each play a part in it. Even if the ideas are far fetched and fanciful isn’t it a great idea? How much better would our planet be if we all worked together for the good of humankind and the our planet.

I believe I am slowly waking up to my life purpose. I am learning more each day. I am learning to follow my intuitions and ‘gut feelings’. I am taking notice of my dreams and day dreams. They all have meaning. They are all messages guiding us in the right direction, putting us back on our path when we stray. We can choose to follow that path or ignore it. In the end it will be a matter of having lived a full and satisfying life or getting to the end and feeling that we have missed our chance.

Do you want to get to the end of this short time we have and meet the person you could have been and feel regret that you did not follow instincts? Or do you want to get to the end and feel like you have achieved what you set out to do before you were born?

WHAT IS YOUR LIFE PURPOSE?

Love and happiness
