You have the power to recreate yourself

Always be positive and optimistic that things are working out for you. No matter what’s happening you can shift your attitude and mindset right now and start changing the momentum of your life. But you must believe that good things are coming to you. Life is always trying to guide you. Life is always giving you the challenges that you need to help you learn and grow. So look for the signs. Feel your way. Life is a beautiful journey. It’s not really so much about the goal or the destination. It’s about what you learn about yourself and who you become along the way.

You’re the artist of your own life

All of the data suggests that there is no such thing as luck or coincidence in a universe that we now know is based on energy, vibration and attraction. The universe is always lining up to the vibrational state that you’re offering. It is your thoughts and feelings that are painting and creating the life that you’re living and drawing to you the situations and circumstances that you find yourself in. If you want to live a different life, you’ve got to start painting a different picture. You’ve got to start thinking, feeling and operating differently. If you don’t change, then life will keep dealing the same or similar experiences until you have learnt the lessons that you need to learn to be able to move forward in your life. Every obstacle and every challenge that life throws you is trying to help you to learn and grow and evolve as a person. Don’t resist them. Embrace them.

You are the universe

We are an expression of the universe, a vessel through which the world is looking at and experiencing itself.

Have fun and enjoy the ride

Life isn’t supposed to be so serious. Even if you’re doing something that you’d rather not be doing today, even if you’re going to work, let’s all have fun and enjoy the journey.

You’re moulding your world around you

When you think a thought, more thoughts like it are drawn to you, and more people, situations and experiences that are on a similar wave length. So as you think you’re literally creating your world around you, moulding the people, situations and circumstances that are coming into your life.

Stop beating yourself up.

October 8th, 2018. Stop beating yourself up. Stop repeating negative stories to yourself. Stop putting yourself down and start pulling yourself up.

You have to be your own best friend. You have to treat yourself with love and kindness. You have to start relaxing a little bit more and enjoy this magical journey.

What to do with negative feelings.

October 3rd, 2018. Our feelings and emotions are always going to go up and down like waves in the ocean. We are thinking, feeling and emotional beings. It’s unrealistic to expect that you shouldn’t experience negative emotion, because it’s just not supposed to be that way. However what you can do is become more skilled in your thoughts and emotions, so that when you feel your mood starting to go down hill, you know what to do to ride that wave and encourage yourself back to a calmer and more positive state of mind. In other words, you can become better and being able to recognise negativity building up within you before it gains much momentum, and then be better at talking yourself back to a more positive state.

What I’ve found through my own experience is that it’s all about the way that you think to yourself and how you respond to what’s happening to you. If you change the way you’re thinking about something, the way you feel about it will change to match it. So you really have to learn to be able to catch yourself when you feel your mood starting to slip, and then talk to yourself in a calmer and more positive way.

First of all you have to break the momentum. Go for a walk. Listen to some relaxing music. Meditate. Take a nap. Do whatever you find is the best way for you to switch off for a little bit, and this will begin to break the momentum. Whilst doing this, or after, begin to start softening your thoughts. What I mean by this is begin to think more softly and more generally. Listing in your mind things that you’re grateful for in your life is a great place to start. List things that you appreciate. List positive things about your life right now. Now begin to talk to yourself like a mentor about the situation. Find positives about the situation that is bothering you. Think about it from other angles. What can you learn from it? What can you take from it to make you stronger?

By doing this you will become much more disciplined in how you’re thinking and feeling and responding to the challenges that life is giving you. Over time you will be amazed at how quickly you can dissipate that negative energy, and very quickly talk yourself back to a much calmer and more positive state.

Here are some of my most soothing thoughts.

  1. I know that no matter how bad I think it is, there a still millions of people all over the world that would rather be in my shoes than their own…
  2. Things are never as bad as they first seem. Everything always works itself out in the end…
  3. I know that over thinking and over worrying doesn’t make anyΒ difference, so I’m justΒ going to let it go, relax, and see what happens…
  4. I’m just going to relax my way through this…
  5. I know that I can learn something from this. I know life is giving me the challenges in my life to help me learn and grow…
  6. I know that I have a lot of things in my life to be grateful for in my life…
  7. I’m no longer going to beat myself up. I’m going to start being my own best friend…
  8. It’s okay. I’ll probably feel better in a little bit, so I may as well just relax right now…
  9. I’m proud of myself for how much I’mΒ learning about myself and life…
  10. I love feeling calm, relaxed, and at peace within myself. I love being able to let things go…Β
