Manifest what you want

Have you ever noticed how when you think about what you don’t want, what you don’t want seems to happen more often.  When you’re running late, everything seems to be in your way. Or when you think about a certain physical pain and how much you want it to go away, the more you notice the pain.

It’s funny how when you think about what you don’t want, how you keep getting more of what you don’t want.  So switch it around.  Instead of thinking about what you don’t want, start thinking about what you do want. 

When thinking about what you do want, think of it as passionately as you do about things that you don’t want.  See, feel, hear, smell and taste it in your mind’s eye and make it as real as you can make it.  If you need help with it, start to write it down.  Break down what you want one at a time.  What does that look like, what does that feel like, what does that sound like… Make it as real as you can in your mind.

For example, you want a healthy relationship.  What does that relationship look like to you? How does that relationship feel?  See yourself in that relationship.  And to make it as real as you can, feel the gratitude you feel to have such a loving healthy relationship.

Feeling of gratitude is a wonderful tool to help you manifest more of what you do want.

Meditation

Meditation seems to be a new trend that’s going around but practice of meditation has been around for as long as we have been alive.  Meditation is often used to clear the mind and ease many health issues, such as high blood pressure, insomnia, depression, anxiety, and helps with stress reduction, relaxation, clarity, focus and so much more.

There are so many forms of meditation and you may find it hard to figure out how to meditate or what it’s supposed to feel like.  But there is really no right way or wrong way to meditate. 

I started offering guided group meditation because I knew how hard it was for some people to learn to meditate on their own.  So for those that want to receive the benefits of meditation, a guided meditation is a great way to start.  Beginners as well as those that have practiced meditation for many years can benefit from guided meditations.

Guided meditation feels like someone is reading you a bedtime story.  You just have to relax and use your imagination as you are guided through the process.      

For those that have a hard time meditating on their own, you can try this easy breathing technique, which will help you to relax so you can gain focus and clarity.  

It’s best to take your time and bring your attention to your breathing, and just notice yourself breathing in and breathing out and how that feels.  Breathing is such a normal, natural way to allow ourselves to relax.  

Each time you exhale, exhale slowly.  With each exhale imagine, out flows all your cares, all your worries, and stress, tension, problems, in fact imagine that with each exhale, out flows anything that is inconsistent with your total best health. 

And with each inhale flows clean refreshing oxygen.  Feel the oxygen flowing into the lungs to be picked up by the bloodstream to flow throughout the circulatory system, to every cell of your body. Feel the oxygen bringing sustenance, healing, cleansing, and relaxation to every cell of the body. 

And anytime you wish to go deeper, you may take a deep breath and go deeper.  Taking deep breaths is something we can do anytime, anytime we want to feel centered and relaxed. Anytime we feel stressed out, anxious, irritable, or any number of emotions. All we need to do is take a few deep breaths and allow ourselves to become centered and relaxed.  

You mind will slow down with each breath and you will be able to let go of the daily stresses. Try this every day, even if it’s only for 5 minutes.  You will see each time you practice the breathing technique, it will become easier and easier for to you.

Loss & Grief

For all those who are grieving...

Birth and death is part of life and no matter your culture or religious believes, we all go through a grieving process and have a feeling of sadness and loss when we lose a loved one.

This universe is energy.  You can replace the word energy to whatever word resonates best with you, God, higher power, energy frequency, realms…  We are all one and woven from the same celestial fabric of life. 

We are brought into this life in our human bodies but there is more to us then the physical flesh. Our flesh may perish but our spirit, energy or essence never dies. 

If energy never dies, it is proof that your loved one’s presence is still very much with you, they have just changed form.

This awareness gives you peace in knowing your loved one is fine and happy. You know that their loving wish is for you to be as happy as they are now.

Every time you think of your loved one, you can think of loving, positive memories, pleasant times, fun times laughing together.

This is what life's all about, creating happy, memorable moments that live on.  Talking about your loved one will be pleasant and makes you feel close to them.  This will help you in your healing process when you lose a loved one.

Feeling so grateful and honored to have had this person in your life, realize the difference they made in your life and everyone else they touched.  And you too have this greatness!

This understanding makes you remember how important you are to the loved ones that are still in this realm; they love and need you very much.

Remember, we are all here for a purpose.  Life is a gift!  Honor your life and look for ways to make a difference, just as your loved one did for you.
