Monday Mantra:: I Trust That I Am Enough

Monday Mantra I Trust That I Am Enough

It’s funny how we as humans fall into this trap of needing to prove ourselves. We work extra hours, we fret when we haven’t crossed anything off of our to do list (even when we’ve been running around doing things all day that relate to the “to do’s”) and we beat ourselves up if something doesn’t go to plan.

I think perhaps that this is because on some level, we’re trying to prove to everyone else around us that we’re good enough to be doing that job or to be in that relationship. But there’s no point in proving this to others if we don’t believe it ourselves. Often, we want to prove it to others because deep down, we feel like we’re not good enough (regardless of how good we actually are).

Sometimes, this pattern plays out even if we’re single or unemployed. If we think we’re not good enough, then the universe and other people will reflect that belief back to us.

Here’s the thing though. We are all good enough. If we weren’t good enough, we wouldn’t be in that job or in that relationship so we are good enough. If you’re single, think about all the compliments you’ve received from friends, family and ex-partners – these are all more than good enough qualities to bring into a new relationship. If you’re currently unemployed, look at all the qualities and skills you’ve got listed on your resume. You put them there for a reason, usually because you feel like they are your skills and qualities – these are your “more than good enough” skills and attributes.

I’m not saying that there’s never room for improvement but improvement needs a strong foundation to launch off of. Today, begin by trusting that the work you do, the love you give, the support you offer, the knowledge you have and that you are indeed enough.

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:: I Choose to Invest in My Trust Fund

Monday Mantra I Choose To Invest In My Trust Fund

This Monday Mantra is influenced by a story that Caroline Myss tells of a woman and her husband. (I cannot remember the exact story, so I’ll give you the basic idea using what I can remember of the story).

The gentleman was looking at their bank account and was concerned because according to their statement, they had nothing there. $0. All their savings were gone and there was literally no money left in their account. When he mentioned this to his wife, she said “Well, what about the trust fund?”. To which he replied that it had indeed all appeared to be gone. The wife then said “No, lets make some deposits into our TRUST fund. Let’s send out some positive thoughts and prayer and trust that this will all work out fine.” And it did. A few days later, all their money was returned into their accounts. It had been a bank error all along.

The point is that sometimes, we can be so busy looking at the problem, over and over again until it becomes the dominating thought and eventually all the things that surround us are viewed from our pessimistic scope. But the moment we begin to start depositing and investing into our trust fund, trusting that everything will work out in the right timing for everyone involved is exactly when we begin to see the return on our investment.

So, today make an effort to invest in your trust fund. You do this with today’s mantra as a beginning point. If you’re a creative or you just like the idea, create a jar for your trust fund. Instead of putting gratitude notes in, put in reasons why you trust that everything will work out fine. You could put in “I know that everything will work out fine because I’m getting signs from the universe that it will” or “I know everything will work out fine because it did last time” etc etc. Make it something meaningful for you.

Choose to invest in your trust fund.

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 to Listen to My Inner Voice

Monday Mantra I Choose To Listen to my inner voice

This one is not an easy one for some. It’s not even an easy one for those who are well versed in listening to their inner voice. We tend to get off track and follow what others think and profess to be the “truth” or fact or the best way forward.

When comes to our inner voice (i.e.; Intuition, Inner Guide or Higher Self, Gut Instinct etc) we tend to allow other people to override it with their opinions because we worry that we might be wrong, that might be perceived as being “away with the fairies” or that because there seems to be no logic to it, we haven’t agonised over the decision enough, that the answer cannot be that simple.

The thing is that the more we trust and follow this inner voice, the more it will guide us.

I come across so many people who are easily swayed by the opinions of those around them. I am also quick to get my clients to tap into what works for them, not what I think they should be doing or what is right for them. The only person who knows what is right for them is themselves. The only person who knows what’s right for you, is you.

So the next time you feel like you’re being pulled in many directions by the opinions of others, consider getting in touch with your Inner Voice and see what the best answer for you really is. Sit still, in a quiet space with your eyes closed, take a few deep breaths in and out and ask for guidance on the best way forward. It may come as a feeling, it may come as an instant thought of the best way forward or it may come later in the day or week as a series of signs (words, numbers, themes of conversation, “coincidences” etc).

Choose to listen to your inner voice.

Monday Mantra:: I Choose To See The Best in Myself

Monday Mantra I Choose To See The Best In Myself I have a great number of clients who are completely oblivious to their fabulous qualities. Qualities like generous, like calm, like decisive, qualities like actually being willing to try new things (including new modalities). They all say things like “I shouldn’t have done that” or “I should have chosen to do this” or “that was a bad decision”. The truth is that we are all human. We all makes choices for ourselves with the information we have on hand at any given point in time. We cannot presume to know what each choice will give us or take from us.

What we do have a choice over, is how we see ourselves and how we talk to ourselves about these decisions. Instead of saying “I shouldn’t have chosen to do that, that was a stupid choice”, think about it more carefully. Did you do the right thing at the time with the information you had? and if not, look at why you chose it – maybe you were at a point where you were willing to try anything to get healthy again (that’s an honourable place to be – some people just give up, you chose to keep trying).

All we need to do sometimes is take step back and look at the situation from another perspective. It’s okay to make decisions that lead you down the garden path, you’re human (as we all are) but how you choose to see the path, how you choose to talk to yourself about that choice will make all the difference to what you find at the end of your path. Today, lets begin by choosing to see the best in ourselves. The best in our decisions, the best in our body, the best in our intellect and the best in our qualities. This will have a flow on effect in your life, your body and those around you.

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 Align Myself and My Life with My Dreams

Monday-Mantra-Alignment

So 2015 is very near. Like many people, I have begun to determine what I want from 2015. There are a few items that have been on my “to do” list for the last 12 months and there are others that have sprung to mind only very recently and I’m working on packaging them all up together to create an amazing 2015.

The best way to get clear about what you want from 2015 is simply to grab a blank piece of paper & pen, a whiteboard & marker or a new, fresh Word document and begin typing. It doesn’t matter if it seems trivial, if you want it, write it. It doesn’t matter of it seems too far fetched, if you want it, write it down. Write out all the things you want, the places you want to see, the people you want to meet, the money you want to attract, the books you want to read, list it all.

Of these, which are the most important to you?

When you think about these, is there anything that might get in your way? (Your “What if’s”)

When you think about these, what else comes to mind about how you can achieve it?

Write your most important items out and put them somewhere you’ll see them often. This will act as a reminder of what’s important to you in 2015. If something is going to draw you further away from these important things, then feel free to say “no” to the offer, request or invitation. If something is going to draw you closer to your important things, then shout “Yes!” to any request, invitation or offer that will draw you closer to your most important items for 2015.

Align yourself and your life with your dreams and you’ll find it much more smoother sailing.

Monday Mantra:: I Choose to Feel Good

Monday-Mantra-i-choose-to-feel-good

I find myself getting worked up at having to run here and there throughout November and December. I sometimes get frustrated at feeling like I am never home, feeling like people take advantage of the holiday season and use it for an excuse to drink and fill our calendars with social events we can’t fit into our schedules. When I’m at my peak of frustration though, it’s usually about then that I “give up” and just go with the flow and enjoy whichever social occasion I’m at. But to be honest, that “giving up” is not what it seems to be. It’s actually a choice to feel good about the situation and a choice I could have made much earlier on in the piece.

The Human Super Power of Choice is one which gets forgotten way too quickly and way too easily.

Everyone has the power to choose. What to wear today, which way to go to work, what to have for lunch etc. We also have the power to choose what kind of life we want, what career we would like and how we respond to what life sends our way.

So, that means that you can choose to feel good while holiday shopping and you can choose to feel good while heading out to yet another holiday gathering. You can choose to not attend all of the social events. You can choose to attend them all. You can choose to do only the fun things if you wish. Change your holiday Have To’s into some Holiday Choose To’s today and see what difference it makes to your holiday season.
