Monday Mantra:: I Make New Moment Resolutions

Monday Mantra New Moment Resolutions

I heard this term in some Abraham Hicks audio recently and it has stuck with me since. At this time of year especially we begin looking into the year that is about to transition into the next and then we hastily begin making new year resolutions before the old year is out.

Besides the lack of real consideration behind them, there is something a little lacking in the “expected” response to the age old question “What’s Your New Year Resolution?”. There are the usual types like Travel destinations, lose weight and get fit as well as the visit more, travel more, do more, be more etc. There are a few things that suddenly have clicked for me at the mere mention of the New Moment Resolution.

  1. The definition of the word Resolution.
  2. The Lack of meaning in them and
  3. The insistence that we wait until the new year to begin


The Definition

Some people have missed the definition of a resolution. These are definitions as taken from thefreedictionary.com:

  1. The state or quality of being resolute; firm determination: faced the situation with resolution.
  2. firm decision to do something: made a resolution to get more exercise.
  3. course of action determined or decided on: His resolution is to get up early.
  4. The act of solving or explaining a problem or puzzle.

Often our “resolutions” are made in haste and only ever skim the surface of what we’re really striving for. “Lose weight” for example is too loose and open to interpretation and at the mercy of life happening around us.

What we could say is this: I’ll make small changes through out the year to improve my opinion of myself and my body image. It speaks more to the humanity in us. The fact is that often when we make a new year resolution, we don’t sit down and work out how we’re going to make it happen, we don’t project plan it working out all the possible things that could go wrong and working out how we can mitigate that risk. The fact is that we start off well meaning and when life or work get busy or complicated, it often falls out the window and we fall off the wagon so to speak. Making small changes means we get to appreciate small wins. Which builds our confidence. And this builds momentum. It also allows us to focus on our own sense of self, not someone else’s idea of what we should or should not be doing for ourselves.

Remember that a Resolution needs to be a decision for a course of action that fills you with determination and solves a particular “problem”.

Meaning
What does it mean to you if you say your resolution is to travel around the country more? If you were doing this already, how would it make you feel? What would it bring to your life and your experience?

If you’re revolution is to lose weight, then when you arrive at your goal weight or at your fitness goal, how will you feel? How will you feel about yourself? What qualities will it install in you? what do you gain emotionally, spiritually, mentally, physically from achieving it?

Make your resolution meaningful for you. Include those meaningful feelings in your resolution.

Waiting for the New Year
Why wait? Why not begin now? Right now? If it’s important to you, it shouldn’t be something that waits for the new year. Why not work out what your resolution is, define it, give it meaning for you and then begin strategising? There is no time like the present and if it’s that important to us, then we owe it to ourselves to begin. Not next year, not next week and certainly not tomorrow. Begin it now.

Aks yourself: What will it take to achieve my resolution? Who do I need on my side for this? What do I need? How much time will it take given my current circumstances (time, family, work etc). How much do I want it? On a scale of 0 – 10 (o being not important at all to 10 being my number one priority for me this year) what importance is it to you? Do need any other help for this (Personal Trainer, Business Coach, Nutritionist or perhaps a Travel Agent)?

Write it down. Get a nice piece of paper and a marker or pen and write your resolution out like an affirmation. If you physically write it out, it seeps into your subconscious more easily. Write it and write it often.

Make a new moments resolution and get planning right now so that even if you don’t officially begin until the new year, you’ll be all set up and ready to hit the ground running from week one.

3 Key Secrets To Seeing Magic

Universe Has My Back Dana Atkin Energy Healing

I’m going to let you in on a little secret or three on what it takes to see magic in your everyday life. The truth is actually very simple it’s just that in our grown up world, we are taught to be realistic, to question everything and to be serious about life and look for the big things.

Secret Number 3 to seeing magic: Know that magic isn’t always big or flashy.

Children are the best at seeing magic in everyday things. I was thinking recently of a beautiful little girl (about 4 years old) who was the daughter of a colleague many years ago who came in to visit her dad at the office. She was asking about the work my other colleague and I were doing and we were just generally having a chat when the conversation dwindled and there was a pause. The little girl looked down at her feet quietly then suddenly looked up with this ‘Eureka!’ facial expression followed by the words “I’ve got an idea – Let’s Dance!” and she proceeded to dance right there in the middle of the office. It was just magical to watch this little girl have the best idea ever and then proceed to go for it regardless of where she was or who was watching.

Secret Number 2 to seeing magic: Trust that there is magic.

Young children are the best at seeing magic in things and people because they haven’t been conditioned out of it yet. They trust that there’s magic out there and trust is met with proof by the universe.

What if we were to peel back some of that conditioning we adults have built up? What if we were to look at things and instead of claim “oh – what a coincidence” or “I had this chance encounter” or “Funny, I was just thinking about that person” or “how unusual” we could instead say “Wow, now that’s pretty magical”.

Secret Number 1 to seeing magic:  look for the magic.

If I didn’t keep my eye out for magic each day, I wouldn’t see it. And if I didn’t look out for it, the universe wouldn’t be able to show me magic either.

If I wasn’t trusting that there was magic out there for me, and I was too busy awaiting a neon sign, not looking at the details of everyday life, then I would have missed some magic recently in the form of crows.

Crows for me represent Universal Law (or the Law of Attraction / Universe Generally). I sat down in a local park recently to do a 7minute visualisation for my Throat Chakra. When I chose the seat, there was a crow wandering around in front of it and I thought that was a pretty good sign. So I sat, closed my eyes and completed my visualisation. When I opened my eyes, stretched and stood up, behind me were another 13 crows and 2 sitting in the trees above me calling out to the world. THIS was a magical sign. It was telling me that if I call out to the universe (hello throat Chakra), to the world, that it will respond. If I wasn’t trusting that there was magic out there, if I wasn’t knowing that simple things can be magical and if I wasn’t looking out for magic in my life then I would not have taken the above photograph and I would probably not be writing this article for you right now.

Keep an eye out for magic and trust it’s there because as soon as you do this, the universe will conspire to show you it’s true.

Have a magical week…

Monday Mantra:: I Choose to Read The Signs

Monday Mantra I Choose To Read The Signs

Most people are unaware of the signs that surround them all day, every day. The universe is always trying to get out attention. Sometimes, it’s simply to say “hey, I’ve got your back” and sometimes it’s more of a “If you keep focusing on this, I’ll keep sending it your way” or even a “This is something you need to be aware of”.

The form of signs is many and varied. They come to you in numbers, colours, shapes, animals, words and songs. The possibilities are endless. What characterises them as signs is their repetitiveness and consistency.

For example:

Last week, on my into work, I had a small spider in the car. When I go into work, there 3 on my desk and when I got home, there was one on the lounge room floor. Because there were so many in such quick succession, all in the one day, I saw it as a sign and did some research on Spiders as animal totems.

The week prior, I was finding feathers in random places, including one placed on my car windscreen even though it had been parked in a garage all day.

I’m currently seeing the number sequence 808, EVERYWHERE! which is all about the manifestation of all that I need being supplied to be in abundance. (see Doreen Virtue’s Angel Numbers App for more information).

I had last week, two separate people who do not know one another mention Teal Swan and Blessing their food in their own unique ways that felt right for them. These were not coincidences. For me, this is clear guidance from the universe telling me how to proceed.

What signs have you been getting recently? How have you chosen to follow those signs? How do you read your signs?

By reading the signs, we get a sense of interconnectedness with all of life and the universe, it makes us feel uplifted and as a result, we naturally attract a happier, more uplifting day into our lives.

Today, choose to read the signs.

Monday Mantra:: How Does It Get Better Than This?

Monday Mantra How Does It Get Better Than This

We’ve all been stuck in a rut, stuck in a day, week, month or year where it feels like nothing changes and all we get is one not-so-great day after another. It’s not easy to pull yourself out of these cycles but with a few little tweaks, it can be done slowly but surely.

This monday mantra will assist and it works three-fold:

  1. How does it get better than this – not the word “HOW”. This is the first key. It says, I know it gets better than this so how does it get better than this?
  2. This mantra shifts you away from “urgh, why does this always happen?” to more of an “okay, that happened, how does it get better than this?”. It prompts you to take action and actually think about a way you can make it better and then it also ignites part 3.
  3. It asks this question of the universe too, each and every time you think it or say it. Knowing that the universe is always responding in some way, shape or form then this mantra may just become one of your new best friend. it’s about reinforcing the positive, that there is something better, so show me how it gets better than this.

You’ll find that initially, when you ask the question “How does it get better than this?” it will still feel like it comes from a place of frustration but the more you use it, the better it feels and the more things begin to turn out better than expected until eventually, it’s like you’re playing a game with the universe that says “Hey – that was awesome, now how does it get better than this?” and it feels exciting and thrilling and it’s a whole lot of fun too.

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 Choose to See Beyond What Is

Monday Mantra I Choose To See Beyond What Is

It’s so easy sometimes to get caught up in your current situation. We focus on how it doesn’t meet our needs or wants, we focus on how it makes us feel in this less than ideal circumstance. But when it comes to actuating change, seeing beyond what is, is the key.

We get what we focus on. Focussing on chaos will show you more chaos, focusing on lack of space, will show you lack of space, focussing on a smooth running office will show you a smooth running office and focussing on all the money you do have, will show you more and more money. It works both in the negative and the positive. So, by choosing to see beyond what is (currently) and choosing to see all the fabulous positive things that you’d like for your future, you can begin to shift your current circumstance.

Yes, you may have less space than you would like, or you may currently have some health concerns but being able to see beyond these will help propel you forward into a future you desire. See yourself in a large, open space. See yourself in perfect health, out and about doing what you love. If you can see yourself doing these things, then it’s possible to get there.

The next trick is to feel it. Really feel what it feels like to be in that wide, open space. Imagine what it feels like in eery cell of your being. Imagine what it smells like, what it sounds like. The more detail you can add, the better.

This also works like the good ‘ol Gratitude effect. Listing all the things you like or can be grateful for about your current experience or situation can begin the shift in your thoughts and feelings which will make looking for the ideal future easier and more effective. The less attached we are to our current situation, the more free we are to invite our ideal situation in.

What in that circumstance can you be grateful for? (write them down and look at them often throughout the day).

If you could see beyond where that situation is at the moment, where would you like to see it evolve to?

What’s the ideal outcome for you?

Monday Mantra:: I Choose a Better Feeling Thought

Monday-Mantra-better-feeling-thought

I have a new fun habit I’m trying out. Every morning I listen to some Law of Attraction (LOA) videos. It just helps me to get in the happy space before I set out into the world for my day-to-day activities.

This little piece of information is inherent in the LOA process. Choose a better feeling thought.

As I’ve mentioned so many times before, we always have a choice so why not choose a better feeling thought too? For example:

I don’t really like my job, I’m annoyed at myself for choosing a job I really don’t like.
try
I love the money that comes in from this job
or
I appreciate having the money that this job pays me
and then
I chose this job for a very good reason at the time

The idea is to slowly make your way back to the positive feelings. We do this slowly so that the mind and body don’t resist it with doubt. It’s like coaxing your thought patterns into positivity with small, believable, truthful thoughts that gradually turn the thoughts away from the negative and move them towards the positive.

Give it a try. Lather, rinse repeat: I choose a better a feeling thought.
