190. Enjoy Being Highly Focused

As I easily focus on whatever I choose, I learn rapidly and thoroughly. My mind is nimble and powerful. I am brilliant because I am one with God’s magnificent mind.

Oh funny ol universe!! I randomly selected an affirmation from my book Daily Guidance from your Angels by Doreen Virtue a few days I chose this affirmation and didn’t feel like writing it. Possibly because I wasn’t focussed on what I was doing and as a result remained scattered for the rest of the day. Today the same affirmation appeared to me when I asked the universe\angels what it was that I would be writing about today. Bingo there it was again! About a month ago I was annoyed about Christmas, not because it not a time of year that I enjoy, rather the amount of “stuff” that is consumed during this time and all the hoo haa that is attached to it. In some ways it still holds a heavy place in my heart about how much emphasis we place on one day. Instead what I have come to realise that if this is where I allow my energy to be focused then I will remain bitter and annoyed about Christmas and miss the many miracles that are happening all around me.

What this affirmation and realisation has shown me is that perhaps me on my lonesome can’t change the world but you know what I CAN make a difference. My actions cause a reaction and so forth. There was a profound comment that I heard the other day whilst I was doing a workshop. It went something like this “We don’t have to love each other but at the very least we should be able to be loyal and to trust one another” For me this summed up so much and allowed me to see life from a perspective that I had not come to see before. Christmas time brings about so many emotions for different people and can range from pure bliss and elation to desperation and despair.  We tend to put so much focus on one day of the year and to some degree that is cool. It is cool because for one day people are extra loving and kind and peace is shared. It is what happens after this day is where we are required to still be highly focused on love and peace.

I can choose to be annoyed about all that is consumed at Christmas time or I can become highly focussed on being love and peace with compassionate and in particular to those who may not be a part of my life for whatever reason. For if I continue to resent and repel against another human then this is only what I will attract. Not sure about you but I would much rather be peace and love than resentment and anger. For if this is what I focus not only at Christmas time but each and every day then my mind can only be nimble and powerful. So thank you for the lessons universe in which I continue to learn and grow only with love and peace. I am peace. I am love. I am compassionate. Blessed be and so it is. So it is done. Namaste.

189. Let Go

I ask and the angels for help with everything. Instead of struggling or worrying, I talk to heaven about my fears. I am now willing to release my cares completely and receive peace in change.

Letting Go

Worry, what a waste of time! As humans we tend to spend quite a fair whack of time worrying. Worrying about our loved ones, worrying about our finances, worrying about the weather, worrying about whatever really and we do it so well. We can do it to the point that it makes us sick and stressed and creates an even further downward spiral. Worrying consumes our head space and we don’t have any attention to the present moment because we are spending the rest of the time about what the “what ifs” and the “what could be”.  This is a lesson I am learning all too well and what I have discovered is the more that I fix my attention to what I perceive as “worry” the more it seems to present in my life.

In the last week I have delved into my “stuff” through a course that I am doing. I love to learn and the most amazing learning is of self so I can fully be present to be and do what I came here to do on this earth. My life passion and purpose is to be of service to humanity and to live in love ALL the time. This is all good and well but unless I learn my lessons from the past and feel them with grace and ease then “stuff” will always come up. That is not to say that you do a “course” and wham, bam thank you mam, life is healed and you never have to revisit anything ever again. Rather the contrary. What this means to me is that it is about learning and continuously creating the life that I dream and imagine right now. Inevitably life will come with lumps and bumps but it is also about perspective. We can view them as lumps and bumps or simply the road less travelled in which we learn and grow and truly experience the awesome stuff about life.

I have suffered pain in my life and I have experienced happiness, neither is good or bad it just is. We can’t have light without the dark and this is the magic of life. So when the affirmation today presented me to write about worry this is what I am able to reflect on. That worry is the power we give to a situation. That if we are worrying about it then we are attracting more of it into our lives. So with love in your heart and peace in your thoughts make today and every day the best day of your life. It doesn’t have to be about what you have acquired rather about the amount of love and gratitude you have with each day, each breath you take and making each moment matter. I surrender and let go of what no longer serves me. In return my life is filled with love and infinite possibilities. Blessed be and so it is. So it is done. Namaste.

188. Feed Your Heart

I nurture my heart and am compassionate towards myself. I reassure it gently, promising my intuitive guidance in every relationship. My angels protect me in all ways.

peace

The more I open my heart space and trust the more I know that I am divinely guided by my own heart and intuition. I has set out to write this blog a few days ago and didn’t. Now I feel why. As we all wake to the siege in Sydney, the loss of lives and the absolute terror of the ordeal I am also aware of what some of us may be feeding with our own thoughts and feelings. With such an event occurring so close to Christmas it brings the feelings to even more a forefront. It is beyond devastating but you know what shit like this happens every fuckin day in parts of the world and for most of the time we are oblivious to it! We are so far removed from it that we only remember to pray for peace and harmony when it is our own backyard.

Are we acting from a place of peace and love each and every day of our own lives? Do we speak to our neighbours, are we kind to our ex husbands or wives, do we even speak to our own family members? Yet we expect there to be world peace when we can’t even be peaceful within our own hearts, immediate family and community. This is not about blaming but let’s wake up and take some responsibility as a whole rather than blaming the government, other religions or each other for the devastation and injustice in the world that we live in.

People are dying of world hunger each and every day yet we throw away bucket loads of food. Animals die so we can have beauty products yet we don’t seem to flinch. Families are dying all over the world because of political unrest, yet a man kills a couple of people in Sydney and all hell breaks loose and rightly so. I am in no way shape or form paying any less attention to the lives that will be affected forever because of this, make no mistake it is gut wrenching, rather what my heart is feeling is that this is the level of awareness we should have each and every day of our lives.

What comes to mind as I conclude my blog for today is one of the commandments; irrespective of what religion its association is “Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” This phrase is so simple yet so profound. What I encourage today is to feel what it is that you have to feel but recognise that peace and love is a place where we ought to be coming from each and every time. Yes tell your family you love them and hug your kids a little tighter but more importantly extend a gift of kindness or a random act of love to a complete stranger. Send your enemy, ex-lovers, those who you are in conflict with love for this is where true harmony begins, justice prevails and peace occurs. My world is filled with love. Blessed be and so it is, so it is done. Namaste.

187. Lighten Up

10689750_1500999503506505_19126346804391536_n

Dear angels,

Thank you for helping me lighten up and see the many gifts that are before me. Please help me release any worries, and fill my heart with faith that everything is going exactly to a wonderful Divine plan. I don’t have to know all the behind-the-scenes details of the agenda. I simply need to keep my heart open and joyful, and be willing to receive all the good that you bring to me each day.

Having spent time in Cambodia in a very third world country has taught me so much about gratitude. There are times that I can get caught up with not being where I think I should be. What I do realise is when I tell myself that “I should” I may as well be shitting on myself because to live in “should have” moments have no purpose at all. Rather how I choose to live my life is to know and realise that everything is exactly the way it is meant to be good bad or indifferent. For the last month or so I have felt blocked and my creativity stifled. Hindsight and reflection is awesome and at the time of feeling stuck the answers are not always obvious. What I did understand for me this time was that it was OK to feel blah as long as I didn’t plan on unpacking and living there.

Worry is such a waste of time and energy and is really disempowering. Unfortunately you can’t switch on a magic switch and poof it is gone but rather what is symbolical to me is to connect to my inner source and faith, to know and trust that all will be well and that I am safe and divinely protected. We are filled with so much abundance in our country and we are so privileged to live in a place where so much freedom exists. I am grateful for this each and every day. It is often the most trivial of life’s counterparts that make us so abundant but yet in the midst of our daily chaos and mind we falter to see them. Whilst most of us are complaining about the Christmas rush and being amongst the celebrations there are so many where water, food and clothing is scarce. This is the injustice of the world that saddens my heart but I can immerse myself in the gratitude of all that I have. I wake up in a bed each morning and I am safe, I am comfortable and I am filled with food and water to keep me alive.

So for me this affirmation could not have come at a better or more convenient time because instead of feeling what may be missing in my life I am eternally grateful for all that I am surrounded with. I am about to go to mums and dads for breakfast where I will be filled with love and nurtured. These are the blessings that I am most grateful for. Most importantly my heart is beating. I am willing to receive all the greatness that life offers me now. Blessed be and so it is, so it is done. Namaste.

186. Move through Life Changes

10423824_396066633876260_7195125916706073774_n

My life changes take me in positive new directions. The angels are with me every step of the way, and I am open to receiving their help, guidance, and protection. I am excited about fresh possibilities on my path.

I love change and actually really dislike when my life is the same. If my life is the same it means that there is no growth, no leaps of faith and that I am staying comfortable in my zone. For me when there is no change or shifts I actually feel stifled, my energy is stuck and I feel blah. Not a nice place to be and when I am in this space I know that I am ready and willing to accept change in every way possible.

What I interpret to be normal is that life presents us with hurdles and obstacles that we can perceive as blocks or stepping stones to where we need to be. When I am presented with a situation that ultimately will change my life and the way I live it is not always pleasant, sometimes it is through an action of another that has hurt or caused me pain. What I am open to do in these instances is to go inwards and firstly ask myself where it is my life that I have also played this role. It is not always or easy or pleasant to look within. What I definitely do know is that it is far more empowering to feel this way than to choose to be a victim or martyr to the situation. That is not to disregard that what another person has done is OK in fact to accept the behaviour is abuse to self. Rather what lends itself to change and growth is to learn from what has been presented and to take responsibility for the situation that ultimately has been created by you.

What you have allowed to accept in your life is a part of you where that behaviour may also reside. It is sometimes difficult to look within and to accept the shadow but I know that accepting my shadow is one of the bloody most powerful aspects of growth that I have been able to learn from. There is change that comes from acceptance of self and yes that sometimes can be scary but staying the same is far scarier. F*&k I don’t want to die being the same person I am right now! I want my eulogy to be filled with so much adventure, magic and change for not only myself but for the world.

So for me right now my changes are about acceptance of taking a leap of faith. To create a life where I put myself out there far more than what I ever did, to be the I want to see in the world by being of service to humanity , by not staying small and my saying yes to life!  The changes in my life are experiences of magic and miracles filled with abundance, gratitude and grace. Blessed be and so it is, so it is done. Namaste.

185. Have Patience with yourself

10847802_396889817127275_2138904366784888092_n

I have patience with myself and my progress. I acknowledge and honour how far I’ve come and how much I’ve learned. I give any fears or worries to God and the angels, relaxing in the sure faith that everything is going according to Divine Plan.

The affirmation that I randomly picked today was exactly what I was meant to hear. I must admit I had been beating myself up of late and feeling that I have not done all the things that I had set myself out to do. So when I flicked to the affirmation to today I sat down and breathed a sigh of relief. Instead I felt rather than thought and was really honoured and proud about  all that I have been able to achieve rather than berate myself. It is so bloody easy to be hard on ourselves and yet for some ridiculous reason we don’t easily recognise our successes. Today I stand proud of all of who I am and all that I have achieved so far.

When we lie in bed thinking thoughts that consume our mind we are not thinking of all the beautiful wonderful things that are happening, instead we are riddled with worry about all the things that occurrences that can potentially happen. As I type this out I realise how ridiculously worthless and pointless this is to our self-esteem and most importantly our worth. Why is it that at times we struggle to see our own worth and beauty? There could be a gazillion indoctrinated beliefs about this but ultimately the only person that can change the answer to that is you. For me right now this is the biggest lesson that I am learning. To know and understand that I am worthy of all the great things that are in my life right now and of everything that will be.

This morning I lay in bed for ages before I got myself up. A few times I heard myself saying “come on Sonia it is a beautiful day get up and get out and get stuff done” my body was telling me otherwise so I continued to lie there. Then another voice popped in my head “you are wasting a beautiful morning”, this time I told ego to F*(K off my body was tired and I was listening because I am worthy and deserving of rest. Anyway whose perception is it anyway that resting your body in bed is time wasting?  It was certainly something that I have heard and learnt to be real because this was my perception. When it no longer becomes what I believe I am not wasting time in bed rather I love my body enough to rest and recuperate for all the things that I would like to do.

So in reflection on the affirmation for today it is about acknowledging how far we have come from yesterday. It is not about living in the past but rather to be proud of ALL that has been achieved good bad or indifferent. To celebrate the breakups and heartbreaks as milestones and all the mistakes along the way for it is these situations that truly shape us. I am awesome and perfect just the way I am and everything is working in divine working order right now. Blessed be, so it is, so it is done. Namaste.

174. Trust Yourself

Quotation-William-Steig-life-Meetville-Quotes-323

I trust my gut feelings and listen to my inner wisdom. I take steps back on the messages that I receive. I have faith in myself, knowing that I am continuously guided by the love of God.  

The last six months have taught me to trust myself more than what I have even known in my life and it is such a beautiful thing. There are still times when ego comes in the way and rears its ugly head and likes to f*&K with my mind but only for as long as I allow it. Once I am able to recognise if it is my head or my heart that is speaking to me that I can trust what is going on for me. Moving from my head to my heart has been one of the most liberating tools that I have ever been able to learn in my life. It is so magical and fulfilling. That is not to say that I never get in my head space but you know what it drains the crap out of me now! I have recognised this more so in the last few days more than I ever have and it gave me a headache.

What this also tells me is the situations and people are not worth the drama or the stories that are attached to them. That is not to say that I don’t take responsibility in any part because I do and acknowledge what this means for me. Hindsight is wonderful but has no purpose in life in talking and regurgitating about the “what ifs” or “should haves”. What I recognise is that my gut feelings are there for a reason. It is our compass and how we navigate our way. So having ignored these gut feelings in the past has led me to the situations that I am in today. That is OK because everything is presented at the perfect time.

As life unfolds you learn more which one may say is inevitable. So as I am writing about trusting myself I know that there is such a freedom to simplicity. I feel that in life we analyse, mince it, turn it around until it gives us a headache and drains the crap out of us. The last few days have unveiled another onion layer which plucked itself out of nowhere. None the less the layers unveiling are awesome no matter how crap they may feel at the time. Something eithers feels good or bad, it is easy or hard. The simplicity of such actions allows us the freedom and grace to live the lives that we choose. Why we would do something if it makes us feel bad? Yet time and time again there are so many instances when we put ourselves in situations that do so. So for me knowing that I am in my heart space is about listening and trusting to what I know is truth. I listen and trust my inner wisdom and allow guidance to be heard clearly. Blessed be and so it is. Namaste.
