It’s Time…

Wearing a golden yellow dress today has got me feeling uplifted and in tune with myself on a different level. It’s the little things. It’s amazing the power and impact that colour has on your health and wellbeing. Have you ever thought about that? I feel divine!

This brings me to write about today’s musings which is all about our energy.

Energy is really simple. We complicate what it is, by giving it labels, by trying to define it and by categorising it as something that is perceived to be almost somewhat tangible. The truth is, energy is simply experienced, felt and shared. 

Have you ever walked into a room and felt that something was not right in that space? Have you ever met someone for the first time and they made you feel like you have known them forever? Have you ever leaped out of bed knowing in your heart that it is going to be an amazing day? Have you ever felt that the time is right for you to start or learn something new and unknown to you? I believe that you always know the truth by the way it feels. Always!

Your energy is truly contagious. The energy in every single being (whether it is animate or inanimate) is truly contagious. 

This is why it is so important to stay connected to yourself. It is important to stay connected because this helps keep you in check and helps you vibrate at a higher level of frequency, attracting more of what you actually want in your life. Who can deny you of all the joy that is waiting to present itself to you? 

Energy flows where your attention goes they say. So… it’s time to…

Stretch your thinking

Broaden your horizons

Expand your mind

Open your heart

Free your spirit

Raise your vibration

Amplify your energy

Your energy defines you. It all starts with you. It all ends with you. It is omnipresent. It is omnipotent. It is omniscient. Just like the universe! 

How blessed are you?

Stay blessed.

Our Love

I like to keep things simple at the best and worst of times. It is the little things that really matter the most. I’ve learned that life has its own plans, timing and way of ‘happening’. Sometimes this perspective forces me to take the backseat and allow things to happen in its own time and place and in the universe’s terms, not mine.

There is only so much we can control in life. Sometimes we have to let go and let love take over. And it is true that it is hard to fully let go. We love having things and situations to happen in our own way and time. We expect so much out of life and people and situations. Expectations can also drive us mad. Expectations can be harmful to our health and stress levels.

So it’s time to stop. It’s time to breathe. It’s time to let go. It’s time to let love.

Love yourself most importantly. Love the people you treasure the most in your life. Love your job(s) and passions. Love your dreams and work on them, one step at a time even. Love the uncertainty of life and what blessings it may gift to you. Love your solitude and the wisdom that it brings.    

Our love can change the world. We are all just walking each other home.

Stay blessed.

There’s a Blessing

There’s a blessing in every lesson. No matter where you are in life, what you are experiencing right now, who you are having to deal with, when you are about to make a life-changing decision, or why certain situations are happening the way that they are, remember that there is a blessing in every single lesson.

Although I think I have only seen and experienced half of what my life span may perhaps be, I feel like I have been through enough to learn and believe that there is certainly a reason for why everything in life happens the way that it does. It is also important to remember that every time something does not go your way, your life is not doomed but in fact is being beautifully redirected to something far better and more meaningful than what you had planned or imagined for yourself. Trust in this. Trust in timing. Trust in the process. Be patient. And let life flow in divine timing!

Today, I am thankful for all the lessons. I am thankful for all the blessings. I am thankful for all the things that I wanted and couldn’t have. I am thankful for the things that did not go my way. I am thankful for all the rejections. I am thankful for all the hurt and pain I have endured. I am thankful for all the bad decisions I have made. I am thankful for the past. Because without what I have been through, I wouldn’t be who I am today. And I have grown. A lot. And I am truly grateful for that.

Stay blessed. 

What Matters Most

Everything is matter. But have you thought about what matter matters most to you?

Is it your job? Is it your relationship? Is it your family? Is it your car? Is it your house? Is it your money? I could go on building this list of all that matters to you and it may even be never ending.

Today, it occurred to me that I am just a witness. A witness of all that is. A witness of all that surrounds me. A witness of all that I experience. A witness to people, places and objects. We are all eternal witnesses of all that is transient. The only constant is change.

This is so grounding to me you see. Because it puts everything into perspective. Nothing we have or own is ever truly ours, although we’d like to think and believe otherwise. Everything is temporary and ever changing.

So enjoy the experience! Enjoy what matters to you in this moment. Appreciate all that is. Be forever grateful for all that was. And be present, because that is where the power truly lies!

It’s important to acknowledge that we are the matter that matters the most. Because that is all we ever truly have, in every moment, until the end of time.

Stay blessed.

Never Give Up

That’s right. Never give up! The opportunities are abundant. Stay focused.

Do you have big dreams that you want to see materialise? Are you taking actionable steps to reach them? Are your intentions aligned to you achieving them? Have you got your goals written down and stored somewhere special that resonates with you? Are you moving forward, or moving at all?

These are some questions that came to mind just now when I thought about my own dreams, about what I want to achieve and about where I am in life.

You see, I’ve always been a high achiever (like most of you!) and this personality trait comes with its own pluses and minuses. The ‘pluses’ include being a go-getter at heart, always driven, committed, itching to continuously learn and grow and constantly wanting to move on because what I have isn’t simply enough, I want more… all the time.

Now to the ‘minuses’… well I beat myself up a lot when things don’t go the way I want them to, I constantly put pressure on myself to exceed my own expectations and others’ expectations, I don’t deal well with failure, I fear failure, I am constantly looking for what’s ‘new and better’, the desires are endless, I am rarely ever settled, I constantly question my own progress and performance, sometimes things are just not good enough and I am left unsatisfied with the circumstances of certain situations.

Now, to be honest I feel like I’ve focused more on the negatives than the positives. But my drive to excel and to keep growing is far greater than anything else that I desire in life.

This is just a reminder to myself really (and you if you’re reading this too), that it’s never too late. The truth is, life is a demanding journey, especially as you grow older and wiser. There’s never a reason that is justified to give up on what you really want. Stay focused. Keep trying. Be humble. Learn lots. Believe in yourself. Enjoy newness. Rise strong. Celebrate the good. Keep it real. Explore the unknown. And create magic with the power of the source that lies within you! *Insert fist pump here*.

Never give up!

That’s all I felt compelled to write for today.

Stay blessed. 

Your Best Work

It’s good to stay grounded and remember that we are always doing the best that we can in every single moment. This present moment awareness also empowers us to perform better and to operate from a place of inspiration, passion and for our highest good.

Upon my own reflections, I’ve learned recently that your best work happens when…

⁃ You are aligned with your purpose

⁃ You have clarity through action (even taking those baby steps)

⁃ You turn fear into faith

⁃ You are accountable

⁃ You channel abundance instead of competitiveness

⁃ You stay true to yourself and your values

⁃ You adapt with change instead of resisting it

⁃ You challenge yourself

⁃ You are creative

⁃ Your actions speak louder than words

⁃ Your communication is clear and authentic

⁃ You continue to stay focused

⁃ You show up not show off

⁃ You learn from your mistakes

⁃ You turn failures into wisdom

⁃ You are not afraid to take chances

⁃ You are honest

⁃ You are patient with yourself and the process

⁃ You stay open to possibilities instead of limiting yourself to your own expectations and beliefs

⁃ You follow your inner guidance

⁃ You stay committed to your vision(s)

⁃ You embrace learning

⁃ You stay present

⁃ You are humble

⁃ You are grateful

⁃ You inject love into everything you do

⁃ You act with grace

Be the best version of yourself, in every moment. Not for others, but purely for yourself.

Stay blessed.

What’s Blocking You?

Right now, in this moment, what is blocking you from having what you want? What is blocking you from having what you would like? What is blocking you from the possibility of realising your dreams, your full potential, acquiring your desires and being the absolute best version of yourself?

The amount of work that we channel and invest in ourselves dictates our level of progress and how far we go in life. Time doesn’t stop for us. In every moment, we experience change. In every moment, we evolve. In every moment we have the power to realise and materialise our desires and dreams!

So what is it? Honestly. What is blocking you right now? Is it fear? Is it resistance? Is it negative emotion? Is it the unknown? Is it uncertainty? Is it past experiences? Write it down. Write it all down. Set aside some time to reflect on this.

Remember to check in with yourself regularly. We sometimes get so caught up with life and the day to day that we forget to stop and check in.

Transform your fear into faith. Transform your resistance to taking action. Transform your uncertainty to clarity. Transform the unknown to possibilities. And most of all, work on transforming yourself. The true power and grace lies within you. It all starts with you. That’s all for today.

Stay blessed.

What I’ve Learned About People

It’s Monday. Every Monday matters.

It’s a new day. There’s plenty to learn. The opportunities are abundant. And in every moment lies new possibilities.

This excites me. This fuels me. This inspired me to write. Just now. So I am.

So… I have something to share with you. I have had the opportunity to meet a lot of new people recently. A lot. And it’s been a real blessing to have these opportunities to meet.

Living in this current technological era, connections are made easily available and are literally at our fingertips. This is true right? It’s just a matter of taking your time to connect with the right people, at the right time and that vibe with you for your highest good.

I have learned some significant lessons recently about people. And I’d like to share them with you as a reminder… just in case you have forgotten.

I’ve learned that…

  • People are different, every single person is different
  • People have their own needs and expectations
  • People have their personal intentions and are out to fulfill those for themselves
  • People are inspired by various aspects of life including things, places, situations, experiences and each other
  • People have their very own beliefs, and will usually stand by them
  • People fear, some fear a lot
  • People have desires, some are never ending
  • People need to be loved and cared for, that’s usually their highest need other than the essentials like food, water and etc.
  • People have feelings, and sometimes feelings are hard to read and can change over time
  • People learn, grow and change in every moment
  • People have the capacity to be compassionate
  • People like to give and receive
  • People are sometimes complex, sometimes simple, sometimes lost and trying to navigate their way in the right direction
  • People are wise
  • People have so much to share, most don’t even realise this
  • People communicate in so many different ways
  • People are sensitive
  • People like to judge
  • People remember, some remember everything and others remember little
  • People are wired differently
  • People have different values
  • People make mistakes, some big and some small
  • People are doing the best that they can
  • People need people

So why have I listed the above? Well, to remind myself about what I’ve learned recently really. I’m not here to tell you anything you don’t know. I’m here to remind you.

To be honest, life grounds me every time I think about what I have learned recently and these learnings and realisations dictate the way I treat and interact with others. It keeps me present. It keeps me true. It keeps me real.

Because of my recent encounters, I’ve learned to be more caring. I’ve learned to be more sensitive. I’ve learned to gauge feelings and sentiments with care. I’ve learned to respect others for who they are and what they believe in. I’ve learned to forgive. I’ve learned to let people be themselves and not how I want them to be or expect them to be. I’ve learned to be open. I’ve learned to better communicate. I’ve learned to accept. I’ve learned not to expect. I’ve learned that every single person is doing the best that they possibly can in that moment. I’ve learned so much about why people need people.

The next time you connect with someone, I encourage you to think about some of the above lessons that I’ve learned. And apply it to your own encounters and situations. It may in fact influence, change or determine the way you connect with them, keeping in mind some of these truths.

Our stories are nothing without people. People teach us so much, a wealth of information is built when you bring a group or even a couple of people together. Simply through sharing.

What will you share next? Who will you share it with? How will this improve your quality of life?

I am keen to know your thoughts.

Stay blessed.

Guided by a Beating Heart

We are all human. We make mistakes. We beat ourselves up. We live and learn. We sometimes fail. We often fall. We have fears. We experience sadness. We lack motivation. We think we are lost. We break promises. We are not perfect. Not now, not ever. We will never be perfect. Perfection doesn’t exist.

What keeps us connected to ourselves is our hearts. Our feelings. Our capacity to feel is infinite. We know the truth by the way it feels. Whatever that ‘it’ maybe.

Some days are rough. We feel disconnected. We experience the rawness. We are wounded. We can see the scars and the sight ain’t that pretty. We question everything. We fear the unknown. These days are difficult. Not only challenging, but also uncertain. So how do we feel connected again?

Well, let’s start by taking a moment. A moment to feel present. A moment to see where we are. A moment to check in on how we are. A moment to observe what is happening around us. A moment to focus on our breath. We are guided by our beating hearts. Because in every heartbeat, in every moment, life changes and evolves. This realisation is powerful. This realisation dictates how we move forward. This realisation is the truth. This brings us back to the present. It brings us back to ourselves. It brings us back to our power.

The simplicity of our existence is something that we don’t ponder about often enough. Everything is simple. Truly simple. However, we are so carried away with what is happening in our lives and wanting to control circumstances that we forget to stay connected with simplicity and as a result life gets complicated.

We don’t know where the journey is going to go or where this journey will end. What we do know is that there is light. There is possibility. There is change. There is the next moment. The next heartbeat. And with that life continues. We are constantly guided by our beating hearts. And grace. Keep soldiering forward. One heartbeat at a time. Let’s walk each other home.

Stay blessed.
