energy follows attention...
Better life coaching & counseling will inspire, encourage & entice you toward designing the life that you want to create for yourself. When you make positive change in your own life, the lives around you are also transformed & uplifted. You teach best by example. Personal development & expansion are contagious. Taking responsibility for yourself, for your own emotions, choices & actions will empower & liberate you & shift you to a more confident, sure footed & stronger place.
If you have been playing the blame game, you have been making yourself a victim & giving away your power. Blaming is popular, it is also limiting & stifling. It cuts us off from our true potential & keeps us feeling weak & powerless. It gives others power over you, by making them responsible for how you feel... & no body is responsible for how you feel, except you. This is your life & your journey. You have the choice, the ability & the power to manage & master your own emotions & when you do, you are set free. Welcome to the leaping off point, the place of no return.
When you are no longer fixed in some idea & belief of how things & people are supposed to be, you liberate yourself. You become an agent for change, no longer a victim of circumstance. As long as you make others' responsible for your feelings, you are like a puppet, allowing them to pull your strings. Look for the best in them always, then get on with cultivating your own life. It is never too late to make a new plan & shift gently & with ease toward a better life, toward your dreams & your own personal goals. There are many 'ordinary' people in this world, doing extraordinary things. If you are seeking positive change in your life, wanting to shift from 'victim' to 'victor', if you feel the need for a confidence boost, or would like to develop more honest & authentic relationships, personal coaching may be exactly what you are looking for. It is really good to know that the problems we face today, may well hold within them, our richest opportunities.

Yes, energy follows attention, thoughts become things...
what you think about hardens into the facts of your life.
This is powerful stuff when you "Get it"
...& "Getting it" will change your life beyond measure.
Think about it.
It is such a simple law, some call it law of attraction,
Simple & obvious really, when one looks through clear eyes with clean untainted vision. Mostly though, our vision is neither clear, nor untainted.
We have been alive long enough to be contaminated by all manner of influences, ideas & beliefs from out there! We have been trained away from our natural intuitive selves & led to believe what we were told by all those well meaning (& sometimes not so well meaning) others.
What is a belief? It is simply an idea that has become solid in ones mind & become 'truth'. It may well, (hopefully) in due course transform into a different idea & or belief (truth) as one moves through life, expands ones horizons & grows in awareness, after all, it was not that long ago that we believed absolutely, that the world was flat!
This shift is often what occurs as the years fly by & we reach what is commonly known as the midlife crisis. In one oriental language the word crisis is written as two brush strokes, one meaning loss or danger, the other, opportunity.
There is no loss, not really. There is only ever change & once the dust settles, there is always a pony in there somewhere.
The law of attraction, as obviously obvious as it is, is missed by the majority of us. It is sort of opposite to how we have come to understand life on earth.
It has, at it's core, the fundamental principles of letting go,
of allowing life to live itself out through you, rather than trying, efforting & attempting to control life & life situations.
We tend in our societies, to hang on, to cling, covet, grasp & come from a shaky footing of fear & insecurity.
We were born with wide eyes, alive, engaging, curious & knowing. We knew we were meant to be here & never questioned our existence & belonging.
Some say we have to lose ourselves to find ourselves, & yes,
it seems to be the way.
I have heard it said that there are three states along the evolutionary path;
They have been named the three stages of the fool;
The fool who does not know & he does not know that he does not know
The fool who thinks he knows & really, he does not know
The fool who does not know & he knows he does not know
Innocence is beautiful, yet vulnerable, perhaps it is that vulnerability that we see as beauty. That same vulnerability is what gets layered over with the tough, defensive & crusty exterior of arrogance. Such softness & sensitivity as that which we are, deep inside, must be protected from the ravages of other fools one meets along the path toward sure footed enlightenment, (for those that awaken) ...where one stumbles into the vivid & deeply life changing realization that nothing & no one can really hurt you, no one can take away your real treasure, no one can take away from you that which you truly are.
Thanks for taking some quality time for yourself & reading this blog...

"Everything was impossible until somebody did it"
Sunday, 6 July 2014
Observing your breath is quite peaceful, it is one of the ways you can learn to relax.
When life gets challenging, as it does, & will, take time to sit quietly & simply watch your breathing. Even when we are not in the least bit conscious or mindful of our breathing, (most of the time for many of us) we breathe. Blood pumps through our veins, our heart continues to beat & our finger nails grow without us having to pay them any attention whatsoever. We are given this gift of life & kept alive by default!
Setting aside 15 minutes a day to sit quietly and bring your awareness to your breath will change your life. It is rare for most of us to spend time in quiet contemplation of anything & until we do, we will not be tuning in to our own inner thoughts, feelings & promptings. Many of us fear being quiet & alone much more than we embrace it. Our lives are filled with so many distractions & activities that this rushing around & distracting ourselves has become 'normal' & we do not know how to sit quietly on our own.
Taking even a little time for yourself each day, (again, 15 minutes is really good) to breathe, relax, spend some time in nature, sitting under a tree, watching the clouds sail across the sky or spending time near the ocean & breathing the fresh, clean air deeply into your lungs. These are perfect ways to get grounded & remind yourself of what it is that we really came here for.
Every day, preferably in the morning, (& you can do this anywhere) write a list of positive aspects, things you appreciate, keep it simple, quiet yourself & see what springs to mind. Once you begin, you'll be suprised, you will find many, many things that are so easy to appreciate; the air that we breathe, the warmth of the sun, a clear night sky or a small bird who comes to visit our garden or window sill.
Even in times of grief & loss we can find appreciation somewhere, perhaps that whomever or whatever we are missing was once here as a gift & a blessing in our lives.
Writing about positive aspects in this way, listing a few simple things that are easy to embrace & enjoy, such as the gift of just being alive, our eyes & ears, or the love we feel for a pet cat or dog will bring more things to appreciate, I promise. Try it & watch what happens. When you focus on what makes you feel good & especially when you write about these things, you will manifest more of makes you feel good...because energy follows attention.
