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

Gratitude · Law of attraction · Manifesting

Manifesting tips & tricks to boost your progress.

For some reason there is an error on this post. It is not displaying properly in the reader. You may have to go directly to my site to view the complete post. Sorry for any inconvenience 😊

I have been dreaming a lot recently about writing this post but, as is the nature of a Virgo, I’ve been procrastinating about it! Mostly because I often lack self confidence, a trait I really need to work on. Anyway, today a fellow blogger ask for some pointers as they were stuck with something they’ve been trying to manifest. I realised that this was another gentle ‘shove’ from the universe not to ignore my dreams and intuition and crack on with writing the post! So here goes………..

Back to basics:

Image result for visualisation

Rule no one when trying to manifest anything is to first visualise what you want. Now visualisation is different for everyone. Some people find it really easy to summon up vivid, clear pictures of exactly what they want as if it’s on a TV screen in their head. Others, myself included, can’t always do this. That doesn’t mean you’re doing it wrong! It simple means you have a different way of visualising. I like to sit quietly, where I won’t be disturbed, close my eyes a try to ‘picture’ what it is I’m trying to manifest. Like I said I don’t get clear pictures in my head, it’s more of a faded water colour floating in the background, but I know it’s there and what it is.

Image result for visualisation

The next step is to connect with your  vision, whether it’s a vivid image or just a blur, now feel it. Feel how you would if you already had it in your life. Feel the excitement, the joy, the love and gratitude. Hold that feeling, let it build inside you. Feel your vibration getting higher and your energy growing. Believe it is yours. You have already manifested it. Feel it. Now, let it go. Release it to the Universe and trust it’s on its way, like an online order if you like. All you have to do now is hold that feeling of gratitude you have and know it’s coming.

If you start to doubt, just sit again with your vision until you get the feeling back again. It is this feeling of gratitude that keeps you on the same vibrational frequency as the thing you are trying to manifest.  By staying on the same frequency you can do nothing else but attract it towards you. It is not only the law of the universe but also the law of physics!

Vision boards: 

Image result for vision boards

Vision boards are so much fun and a great manifesting tool. I like to do a new one every spring to symbolise new beginnings but you can create a vision board any time. You can also add to them or remove things as you go. All you need to create your own vision board is –

  • Craft card or a flattened cardboard box, you could also use an old cork board if you prefer
  • Some magazines and/or pictures you’ve printed off of the internet
  • Glue, tape or pins
  • Coloured pens/pencils
  • Stickers, glitter & anything else you fancy to pretty up your board

All you need to do now is get creative! Find images and quotes that inspire you and represent what it is you want to achieve. Have fun with it. Don’t limit yourself. Look for things you think are impossible, remember this is about manifesting whatever your heart desires not just putting a few pictures down of things you are already likely to achieve. That does not mean however that you can’t add those things to your board it just means you need to think outside the box.

Image result for vision boards

Nothing was ever achieved without someone first thinking it was impossible.

Focus boards:

A focus board is the same as a vision board but instead of being a collection of all different things you want to manifest it focuses on just one thing. Be it a new home or a new job or a new car. Your focus board will be all about this one particular thing. If it’s a new car put the exact colour, the alloys, the interior, words to describe how it feels when you drive it, what it smells like, the engine size………you get the picture.

Remember your vision board should be somewhere you can see it every day. When you look at it it should evoke feelings of excitement at its impending arrival!

Gratitude book:

Image result for gratitude book

My gratitude book is one of my favourite manifesting tools. I write in it every day, normally before bed so I go to bed full of gratitude for the blessings I have received throughout the day. The trick with this is to write in all the things you are grateful for that day, even the tiny things, you’ll be surprised at how much you have to be thankful for. I also write my gratitude intentions, all the things I want to manifest as if I have already received them. See my previous post ‘Get your gratitude on’ for more on this tool.

Image result for gratitude book

Remember that gratitude is the key to the Law of Attraction.

Reiki box:

Image result for reiki box

This one is new to me. You can now get a Reiki box app for you smart phone. You can add and remove intentions as you like then open it daily to send Reiki to your intentions. Intentions are written in the present tense as if they are already here, giving thanks and gratitude. It’s a great little app to keep you focused when on the move. You can also have a Reiki box in your home and write your intentions on a piece of paper. Like I said this one is still new to me and I’m still learning.

I hope you find these tools helpful. Feel free to share some of your own manifesting techniques as we can all do with a helping hand sometimes.

Beautiful planet · Energy · Gratitude

Are you giving your energy away?

prana-energy

Hello again everyone. I have mentioned before, in some of my previous posts, about a book that was introduced to me by a work colleague called the Celestine Prophecy. I have also said that the first time I read the book I didn’t ‘get it’ but I persevered and read it again. The second time I read this book I noticed all sorts of things I did not notice the first time round. I also, finally, ‘got’ what the book was about. To this day it is still one of my favourite books.

Recently I have been thinking about the book a lot and decided that it was a sign that I needed to read it again. I always think it is good to read books more than once as you learn something new every time. I am still reading through the book at the moment but I have discovered that I missed so much before! I am not sure if it is because I am further along on my learning journey with the Universe or that I am more open and receptive to the messages within the book that I have picked up on so much more this time round but boy am I glad I decided to read it again!

In the book it talks about our personal energy fields and how they can be affected by people and things around us. Sometimes we feel ‘high’ and other times ‘low’. The Celestine Vision reinforces the truth that we are all energy, the only difference in what we perceive to be ‘physical things’ is the rate at which the energy vibrates. The book talks about our evolution from the beginning of time to the present day. It talks about our awakening as a society and our yearning to feel more connected with the ‘Life Force’ energy.

I will talk more about this in another post because today I want to talk about our energy field and how we could be subconsciously giving our energy away leaving us feeling weak, drained and inferior. Sometimes, in extreme circumstances, we can give so much of our energy that we become unable to concentrate or verbalise our feelings and thoughts. We become dominated by another person who saps our energy!

Image result for energy draining

Every living being is made up of energy. We need to keep our energy vibration high in order to feel good. In the past we have not been aware of this and have not understood why sometimes we feel strong, confident and exhilarated and other times we feel weak, inferior and exhausted. We have subconsciously entered into a power struggle with each other for one another’s energy in order to make us feel strong again. This is why when we get into an argument with another person we feel we need to dominate them, to win the argument. When we argue we enter into a battle of energy with the loser being left feeling weak and the victor feeling strong. The victor has taken the energy from the loser subconsciously. The same goes when we enter into an argument but come to an understanding or agreement that suits both parties, neither is left feeling weak as neither has taken the energy from the other. This also applies to making someone feel good. We all have that one friend who when we’re around we feel good. This type of person is normally very positive and vibrates at a higher energy level. They give away their energy freely, without even realising they are doing it. When we are around them we ‘top up’ on their positive energy.

The Celestine Vision teaches us that there is a better way. More and more of us are waking up to it. we are learning how to raise our own energy without sapping the life force out of someone else in subconscious power struggles. We are learning that we can increase our energy by connecting with nature (remember, every living thing has its own energy). Eating healthful, organic foods and being thankful for the food we eat enables us to absorb more energy. The fresher and more organic the food the higher the source of energy. Taking time to ‘connect’ to what we eat and savour every mouthful increases our energy intake. Giving thanks for the food we eat is not just a religious ritual it is a way of connecting and showing gratitude for the life force it gives.

Have you ever noticed that when you are in an ancient woodland you feel more energised. You feel connected to the trees around you and the wildlife that resides there. That is because you are connected! Our energy is connected to everything else around us. We are one with everything in the Universe. The more connected we become the higher we vibrate. When we are in a place like this the energy is high and we find it easier to connect. When you are in a city or town where there are fewer trees the energy is lower. This is why some of the most ancient natural places on our planet are considered sacred by some. They are aware of the immense power and energy. Pilgrims flock to such places to meditate and restore their own energy in order to continue with their everyday lives. Some even retreat into nature altogether and turn their backs on our modern society for they are fully awakened to the real purpose of life.

It is believed that we will, someday, transcend our physical bodies and become at one with the infinite Life Force of the Universe. This is the next phase of evolution. We will be at one with each other and everything around us. There will be no poverty or pain, no conflict and wars. We will live in a Utopia of love and peace and harmony. Many religions already speak of this and we, as a society, have taken it that it is something that comes after death. But, there are those who believe it is achievable in life, now.

For now, I am coming to grips with raising my vibration and trying to connect to the infinite Life Force energy. I am working on how I interact with others. How I use my energy to raise their energy without draining my own.

To feel LOVE is the easiest way to raise your energy. Once you are in a state of love it is easier to connect with the energy around you. When your energy is high you are less likely to be susceptible to other people dominating you and draining your energy. You can protect yourself and, with practice, it is possible to alter another’s energy from a state of anger or fear to a state of love.

Image result for energy life force

I know this is all very ‘way out there’ but it is the period in time we are living in and we are all awakening to this understanding. It is new to us all. We have spent the last 1000 years thinking one way, we are not going to wake up to this new understanding over night. It will take time and practice.

The Twelve Laws of the Universe #5

download (1)

Hello again everyone. I hope I find you all well?

I hope you have all had a chance to read the other four posts in this series, if not you can catch up on them using the links at the end of this post. I have had some really positive emails and comments about this series so far and look forward to hearing more from you all.

In today’s post I will be looking at the Law of Relativity and the Law of Polarity. Some of you may already be familiar with these Laws but for those of you who are not let us explore further.

The Law of Relativity

Image result for the law of relativity

The Law of Relativity teaches us to compare our problems to the problems of others. What may appear like a catastrophic event to us, when compared to the problem of another, suddenly pails into insignificance. Things begin to be put into perspective. As my mum always said:

“There is always someone worse off.”

Now I know that sounds harsh, looking for someone who is worse off than you to make yourself feel better, but that is not the meaning of this Law. The point is that no matter how bad a situation seems to you, there will always be someone in a worse situation, thus making your problem seem not so bad after all.

For example; we look at our busy lives and complain that we have little time to socialise or relax, yet when compared to someone in one of the third world countries, for example, you begin to realise how lucky we are in our western society. Everything is relative. In our modern world we have become so obsessed with technology and material possessions, we have lost site of the simple things in life and forgotten how blessed we are to have running water, food in our bellies and a roof over our head. We are not in war torn cities, fearing for our lives, not knowing where our next meal is coming from. Our main concern is that we might lose internet connection for a few minutes!!!

Everything only exists because it is made real by it’s comparison to something else:

  • Light vs dark
  • Hot vs cold
  • Good vs evil
  • Big vs small

It is all relative. It is all about how we relate it to something else.

You may think you don’t have enough money until you compare yourself to someone else. To them you may appear rich as they have far less than you. The Law of Relativity says we should stop comparing ourselves to those who have far more than us because this only serves to make us have feelings of lack. These feelings of lack are sent out into the Universe as vibrations of what we want more of so we will be sent more things to make us feel we don’t have enough (bills, debt etc.)

By comparing ourselves to those less fortunate than us we begin to appreciate how lucky we really are and how blessed our lives are. We begin to be grateful for what we do have, therefore sending out feelings of abundance and gratitude. Our vibrations become positive and the Universe will send us more things to be grateful for, more abundance!

This Law reminds us that what we believe we have is all relative in comparison to someone or something else. We can use it to our advantage or to our disadvantage, depending on our outlook.

There will always be someone who has more than you, someone who can run faster than you, is smarter than you. But in comparison there will always be someone who has less than you, runs slower than you or is not as smart as you. Look at what you have and be thankful. Be positive about your situation. Look for the good in everything.

It’s all about how you look at the world around you!

If you are grateful for what you have now you will always have enough because the Universe will ensure you always have things to be grateful for.

Check out my Friday Share from 05/05/2017 for a little reminder.

The Law of Polarity

Nothing is one sided. There are two sides, or poles, to everything. Everything has an opposite. The difference in between the two extremes is called polarity.

Everything has an opposite.

The Law of Polarity states that opposites are just different manifestations of the same thing.

Sir Isaac Newton said that:

“every action has and equal, and opposite, reaction”

The purpose of the Universe is equilibrium and synchronicity. It is said that love and hate are actually the same emotion. For how can you hate someone you have never truly loved. Only someone you love can stir such emotion in you to cause you to hate them because only the actions of someone you love could hurt you so deeply that the love could turn to hate.

The Law of Polarity enables us to experience life at it’s fullest. Without experiencing one thing how can we appreciate another?

How can you appreciate heat if you have never experienced cold?

How can you appreciate abundance if you have never experienced struggle?

  • Love vs hate
  • Hot vs cold
  • Good vs bad
  • Big vs small
  • Failure vs success

All things work together. Without one you cannot have the other. Therefore, all things, good and bad, success and failure, abundance and austerity must work for the higher good.

All is Love

Sometimes you have to experience adversity to appreciate prosperity, sadness to appreciate joy. The Law is there to teach us. To help us learn and discover.

In every failure we find success

Image result for inventor of lightbulb 10000 fail quote

If Thomas Edison had not failed he would never have invented the light bulb and we’d all be sitting in the dark! If it had not been dark he would never have tried in the first place!

Every situation is only ‘good’or ‘bad’ by how we perceive it. Something you consider to be bad another may think is good. Take a step back, look again, is it as bad as you first thought? Is there a lesson to be learnt?

Every one of us is sent a series of lessons. We must learn from these lessons before we can move forward. If we do not learn then the lesson will keep manifesting in different ways until we learn what is has been sent to teach us.

Look for the positive in EVERY situation!

By looking for the good in all situations we will learn our lessons quicker and progress faster.

The same is true for people. Always look for the good in everyone. Positive thoughts create positive energy and send out good vibrations to the Universe and as we know the Universe then sends back more things to be positive about!

You can see that, as with the other Laws we have looked at, there are strong similarities in these two Laws. The general thread through all the Laws is the same. It is about working with all the Laws to achieve our dreams. At first this sounds daunting but as you learn more about each Law you realise that they are all interconnected and work seamlessly together.Please check out the other posts in this series below:

Gratitude · Law of attraction · Manifesting · Positive

Get your gratitude on!

Image result for thank you

One of the main threads throughout the Laws of the Universe is GRATITUDE. It cannot be stressed enough that the more grateful you are the more things the Universe will send you to be grateful for.

One way to do this is by starting a gratitude book. A gratitude book is something you write in every day to log all the things you are grateful for that day, a bit like a journal. Now, you can go online and buy gratitude books, Rhonda Byrne has a lovely “Secret Gratitude Book” which is the official, authorised companion to the original book (this is not an affiliate link). It is filled with inspiring quotes and affirmations to help you on your journey. There are also some other great gratitude books available online with similar themes and they are all very lovely. However, a gratitude book is for you to write in each day the things you are grateful for and any notebook will do just as good a job. It’s not about spending lots of money on a fancy journal, but, if that is what makes you happy, go for it! There are some lovely notebooks out there, I personally like the selection in The Works. They have some beautiful notebooks, my favourite at the moment is the Alice in Wonderland one and it’s only £2! Mind you, if you’re anything like me, you will already have at least one unused notebook lying around indoors (I do tend to collect these a bit!)

Daily Gratitude’s

Image result for thank you

Once you’ve got your book all you have to do is dedicate five to ten minutes each evening, preferable before going to bed, to write down all the things in your day that you are grateful for. I always start with the date at the top. I head it ‘daily gratitude’s’, then I list everything I am grateful for that day. It can be something as small as your morning coffee or a display of spring flowers on your commute to work, you may have received a ‘random act of kindness’ from a stranger, write down anything and everything. As you start to think about your day and write down all the good that has happened to you, you start to realise how blessed you really are. Your mood will shift and you will be sending out all that positive energy into the Universe with the clear message that you want more things to be grateful for!

Image result for i am grateful

There is always SOMETHING to be grateful for!

There is always, and I mean always, something to be grateful for. Even on our worse days when we get up late, we miss our train or bus, our bosses are horrible to us, our children turn into monsters from another planet and it pours down with rain on our lunch break when it’s been brilliant sunshine the rest of the day while we’ve been locked away in the office, even on those days there is something to be grateful for. You might just have to look a bit harder for it.

Start simple:

  • Thank you for the gift of life
  • Thank you for the rain that waters the flowers in my garden
  • Thank you for my job that enables me to pay my bills
  • Thank you for my healthy body
  • Thank you for my beautiful children
  • Thank you for my dog who wants nothing from me, he just wants to love me and be loved.

You get the idea. Even on the worse day there is something to be grateful for. Remember there is always someone worse off than you who would look upon your day as the best day ever. Become that person ans see the blessings that are all around you. You’ll be surprised how much there is to be grateful for.

Gratitude Intentions

Image result for i am grateful for what is on its way

When I set out to write my daily gratitude’s I also, on the opposite page, write a list of gratitude intentions. Gratitude intentions are things you want to happen, things you want in your life, but you write about them as if they are already there. The Law of Attraction teaches us that in order to manifest our dreams we must first think and act as though we have already received what it is we desire. We must act and feel grateful. Writing you gratitude intentions down next to your daily gratitude’s is a great way of doing this. It reminds you of the things you desire and helps keep them at the forefront of your mind at all times. This enables you to keep sending those signals out to the Universe about what you want to come back to you. Sending out your vibrations from a place of love and gratitude only increases the power of your vibration.

I also like to mark off when I have achieved something that is on my gratitude intention list. When I have reached my goal or received my ‘wish’ I mark it off with the date I received it.

It’s great to look back through your gratitude book and see what you have managed to manifest. Each time you mark something off your belief and faith becomes stronger and so your ability to manifest gets stronger because you are sending out more and more gratitude and positive energy.

My first ever gratitude book was given to me by a dear friend. It’s just a notebook but on the front are pictures of my daughters and the caption:

Daughter are the Wonder Women of our future!

For those of you who don’t know me, I am a closet Wonder Woman fan. Well, maybe not so closet to be fair lol. I have always wanted to be Wonder Woman since I was a little girl and my friend knows this sad fact about me. The notebook was the most heartwarming gift I have ever received and for a long time I didn’t want to write in it. There is also a beautiful verse on the inside cover. I realised that this was the perfect book for my daily gratitude’s and gratitude intentions. I also know that I will never throw it away as it is a reminder, not only of my gratitude lists, but also of my lovely friend, for whom I shall be forever grateful.

9 Ways to raise your vibration

I said in one of my previous posts, The Twelve Laws of the Universe #2 , that I would write a post about raising your vibration or energy. I’ve looked into this a lot during my journey and these are some of the best ones I’ve found that work for me.

GET INTO NATURE 

Image result for nature plants and flowers

There’s nothing like a bit of fresh air to blow off the cobwebs of negative energy and raise your vibration. Also scientists have proved that getting outdoors and being at one with nature can seriously improve you mood and general well being. 

So with the 3 day weekend ahead of you it’s the perfect time to get outdoors and experience the best that Mother Nature has to offer. Feel the energy from the trees and plants around you, connect with it. Feel the sun on you face. Even if it’s a bit chilly, wrap up warm and let the energy flow into you and raise you vibration.

Now, I’m not telling you you have to go hug a tree or anything but if that’s what floats your boat and it gets those vibrations rising and your energy back on track then so be it!

PUT ON SOME MUSIC

Image result for MUSIC

Music is the spice of life! It doesn’t matter what genre of music you’re into it is guaranteed to give you a boost. Whether you choose something chilled, soothing and relaxing that you can lay back to and let the soft tones envelope you, slowly lifting your vibration or you chose something upbeat and funky that you can dance around the room to giving you an instant boost, either choice is definitely going to lift you energy and vibration! You could also grab a hairbrush and get your inner Beyonce on in the shower!

HAVE A LAUGH!

Image result for LAUGHTER

Laughter is a great way to raise your vibration. I like to get together with friends and catch up on all the weird and wonderful things that have happened to them throughout their week. It’s amazing the stories people tell you about what goes on in their work places or home lives. Sometimes, things that seemed so serious at the time when talked about among friends suddenly become hysterically funny. Looking back on something in retrospect can really highlight if you have over reacted to something. Me and my friends often laugh at ourselves and our ‘Mum rages’. You know the ones when the kids are driving you nuts and suddenly the red mist descends and the wild woman of Borneo is unleashed! Usually it’s during the morning rush when time is short and the kids decided they are going in slow motion. You see the clock ticking and old father time running away from you, you slip into ‘what if’ mode…..’what if I miss my train’, ‘what if the kids are late for school’, ‘what if I’m late for work’. Once you’ve drop the kids off on time, caught your train and made it to work on time (as always) and you look back at the mornings events you slowly start to see the funny side. The funny side that your kids saw all along which is why they were sniggering in the back of the car when they thought you weren’t looking!

Another way to get your chuckle on is to watch a funny movie. Not only does the easy comedy lift your spirits but the sheer action of just kicking back on the sofa with a movie starts to lift your energy and raise your vibration.

Some other benefits of laughter:

SHOW SOME GRATITUDE

Look around you and find something to be grateful for. No matter what your circumstances there is ALWAYS, ALWAYS something to be grateful for! 

As you start to look around and ‘count your blessings’ you will automatically start to raise your vibration. Gratitude is one of the fastest ways to let the universe know you are sending out ‘good vibes’. The more you are grateful the more things you will find to be grateful for. and the more your vibration will skyrocket!

SMILE

My mum always told me that it takes less muscles to smile than it does to from. This means smiling = less wrinkles!

ENERGY RAISED RIGHT THERE!!!

Also it has a positive effect on your mood and lowers stress levels resulting in higher energy and vibration.

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS

Showing a complete stranger is a great way to raise your vibration. Not only does it make them feel good, it makes you feel good and sends out a positive message to the Universe.

I try to do as many acts of random kindness a day as I can. It doesn’t have to be a big, elaborate gesture, it can be a simple smile as you pass someone by or letting someone go at a junction. You never know what this will do to their day (you never know they might just be a mum in banshee mode on the school run LOL!)

Today for example I help a lady in the supermarket who was struggling on her own with her shopping. He items were dropping on the floor and she clearly did not have enough hands. I couldn’t do much as I currently have a slipped disc in my back but I did what I could and helped her on her way. As I got in my car I felt my energy rise.

AND BREATHE
