Monday Mantra:: It’s Safe To Ask For What I Want

Monday Mantra I Safe to ask for what I want

Oh this one haunts me. It’s a little something I’ve been working on for so many years and just when I think i’ve got it all sorted, another shade pops up for me to work through. But i’ve noticed that it’s also a common theme through a number of my clients at the moment too.

The thing to remember with this mantra is simple. If you don’t ask, you don’t get.

Now, it’s not always easy to shift this when we’ve had so many years of practice of not asking for what we want. But it can be shifted. Begin with asking yourself: What do I want?

Then, start with asking the universe for what you want.

Then, with small items like “I would like Mango Chicken Salad for dinner, can we have that tonight?”. (it seems really little but this is actually really big because

1. You’re identifying what you want AND
2. you’re asking for what you want.

So practice this today with cups of tea or coffee, practice with dinners and work your way up to the big stuff. When you get to the big stuff, have a look at this Monday Mantra and remind yourself that “It’s safe to ask for what I want.”

Monday Mantra:: I Am Open To Fun Opportunities

Monday Mantra I Am Open To Fun Opportunities

Okay, so this mantra is all about being open. This one in particular is about being open to fun opportunities. I want new opportunities the year but I want them to be FUN!

My personal word for the year is Fun. It’s all about infusing fun into life. What’s your word for the year?

In order to infuse fun into life, I’ve realised (thanks to a 12 month year ahead oracle reading I did for myself) that I’m great at setting intentions but when it comes to being open and allowing myself to receive, I need more practice.

With the Monday Mantra above, use the beginning and then insert your own word of the year or intention. Here are some examples:

I am Open To Joyous Opportunities

I am Open To Radiant Opportunities

I am Open to Opportunities to Soar

I am Open to New Opportunities

What kinds of opportunities are you looking to invite into your life in 2015?

Monday Mantra:: I Trust in my Abilities

Monday-Mantra I trust in my abilities

It’s so very easy to get caught up in what you don’t know, in what you could know and what you think you should know that sometimes you forget how much you actually know. Just because it’s not in the same context of someone else’s knowledge, it doesn’t mean you’re not smart or intelligent. It simply means that you know it in another way or you’re intelligent in another way that others aren’t as switched on around. Never underestimate what you do know and although it’s easy to forget sometimes, don’t compare yourself to others because, like every other person on the planet, they too are probably concerned about their knowledge and comparing themselves to you too.

Trust in your own abilities, whatever they may be. You’re an intelligent person and people are intelligent on many and varied levels for a very good reason. Share your knowledge.

Monday Mantra:: I Take Time When It’s Needed

Monday-Mantra-I-take-time-when-its-needed

I used this Mantra in two different ways this weekend – It’s perfectly okay to take time when it is needed.

Mantra Version 1
There was an incident in which I and a colleague needed to take time to care for someone who was quite unwell. This person was so unwell in fact, we almost called them an ambulance. The lesson was not only about taking time with the simple things, like ensuring someone is okay, sitting with them until their loved one arrives, even if it’s in silence, offering company in the midst of a scary situation for them but also in the not so calm times when a space needs to be ‘held’ for someone who needs to get their stuff off their chest or to feel safe to let tears come if they need to.

Mantra Version 2
After a very long week of training (9:30-6:30 every day) and being unwell for most of those days, I had decided that because I had committed to sitting in on some training as an assistant, that I needed to be there. Yes, it was very lucky I was there on the first day, given Mantra Version 1, however, when I woke up on Sunday, I knew I should be staying at home. My body had reached it’s point of “over-tired”. By lunch time, I felt so very unwell and needed to go home shortly afterward. I decided it was okay to take the time off because:

1. I needed it and
2. Walking the walk – showing others that it’s actually okay to say “I really need some time for me and my body, to relax this afternoon” It’s all well and good to tell the people around you to take time out and relax but we need to avoid burn-out ourselves by taking our own advice and looking after ourselves. In looking after ourselves, we are in a much better position to look after others.

Where in your life could you take a little time when it’s needed this week? Perhaps in the morning, to cuddle up with the cat while you enjoy your morning coffee, perhaps leaving work a little early to play the kids before they go bed, maybe juts actually taking your lunch break, your full allocated lunch break?

Monday Mantra:: I Listen to my Body

Monday-Matnra-Listen-Body-KinesiologyYour body is always talking to you.

I’m tired, I’m Hungry, I’m uncomfortable (all of course are on both the physical and metaphysical levels).

Here’s how I listened to my body yesterday: I did nothing except the grocery shopping.

I laid on the couch all day. I had a very long week, I was exhausted and “off colour” all week. Out for dinner two nights, late clients all week, an interview and numerous clients. Now, i had the choice for the two nights out to dinner. I could have said no but I chose to ignore my body. Then after a very late night Saturday night with a friend’s black tie wedding (which was a whole lot of fun but oh so long to get ready for as a woman going to a black tie event), my body was saying “STOP”. So instead of my usual Groceries, cooking meals for the week, including lunches, I laid on the couch and after a good 10 hours sleep last night, I feel pretty good today.

Now, if I had of listened to my body and said no to a few things during the week, chances are that I would not be behind for the week already with cooking but I would have enjoyed my Sunday a bit more too.

What is your body trying to tell you? Are you listening? or are you ignoring its signs and signals?

If it’s tiredness, take a break.
If it’s an unusual symptom and you’re worried, go to the doctor.
If it’s a sick feeling after certain foods, try to remove those foods.
If it’s a an uncomfortable feeling in a certain place, listen to that and investigate what exactly might be causing it.

Your body is always talking to you!

Monday Mantra:: Everything Is Wow!

Monday-Mantra-Wow

Today’s monday mantra is courtesy of a 18 month old boy. We babysat him for the first time this weekend and his favourite word at the moment is ‘wow’.

Everything is wow to this young man. He sees the magic in everyday things. A bowl of pasta is “wow”, blinds on the windows are “wow”, the staircase is “wow” and even a book creates a resounding “wow”. It’s beautiful to watch the eyes light up and hear the exasperation and intensity of the wow at all of these seemingly average things.

This week, I challenge you to look at everyday items and situations through new eyes. With a sense of wonder, a sense of magic. Because we often forget that the simple things are often the things we take for granted.

When you catch the train to work this week, think wow.
When you eat your cheese toastie for lunch, think wow.
When you get back to your home, partner, children or pets, think wow.

The more you look for the wow, the more you find the wow, the more you’ll see and feel the wow.
