Child in Prayer
As a young child my views on what was good and bad
positive and negative were some what distorted because
of child hood abuse.
Sadly I tended to focus on what we
negative/bad about me and my life,
needless to say
I compared myself to the
prettiest girl and slimmest girl ,
with the happiest families and through comparing
I simply compounded the negative thoughts I had about myself and felt like a failure.
Fast forward many years – I was gifted a book that changed my thinking and my way of looking at the world – The Book was “ Freedom In Exile” The Autobiography of the Dalai Lama. After reading this amazing story, my perspective was changed forever and my quest for a new point of view began. I am forever grateful to the friend who handed me her copy of the book all those years ago.
One of those view points that I aspire to use in my daily life, and the one I come back to when I get off track, is Gratitude. I have truly found that shifting to find something ( and there always is something no matter how small) to be grateful for – it lifts my spirits and my vibration, I feel the heaviness leave my body and I begin to lighten up and as I do that more uplifting thoughts and feelings enter my body, as does the outward experiences, its seems to me as I lift the universe immediately matches me.
I have a habit now if I am feeling frustrated and not seeing the results I want to see in my life, I go for a walk, literally moving the energy, sometimes I dance and I start reciting to myself all that I am grateful for, I usually start with my children and the people that I love in my life, there is so much to give thanx for and it can turn my day around.
Do you place significant importance on gratitude?
I have seen and heard may quoting ( and I was one of them not that long ago)
“Let go of your fears to move forward”.
Whilst I agree that living from fear is not the way forward I believe that focusing
on the fears is not the best solution. What we focus on we attract more of and add
to that the anxiety of what you are fearful of and you are keeping yourself in a
cycle that you don’t want.
As I continue my own inner journey it has become very clear to me that opening up to
my feeling realm and honouring what is in my heart is a way more productive way of
living my life. By focusing on what I want I am automatically letting go of what I am fearful of.
You truly deserve to live a joyous, abundant, loving life – go after what you want it is never too late.
If you focused on what you want – what would you Be, Do, Have?
The decision making process is an important part of the path to success. Some things to consider when making decisions.
* choose who you listen too – eliminated advise from those whose life experience is the opposite to what you want
*.ensure you follow through – it is easy to make grandiose decisions however you must follow through and this can be the step that leads to “ failure” ( i don’t believe in failures just information)
* don’t justify – don’t fall into the trap of justifying your reason to others as they may knock your confidence and allow self doubt to step in, choose who your share with.
* know your why – why have you decided what outcome are you looking for – go for it.
When making decisions there are times when your decisions will make no sense to others, that’s ok, it doesn’t mean your decisions are wrong, make your decision from a place of what you truly want and follow your intention as to the steps you need to take.
Remember not deciding is a decision.
