Monday Mantra:: I Choose to Use Positive Language

Today’s Monday Mantra is a pretty important one. It seems simple and it seems like it wouldn’t really be life changing but I can guarantee you that it is in fact life changing.

Here’s the thing. Your body remembers the last word you use. So imagine that all day, every day when someone asks you how you are, you say “Not bad”. Your body remembers the “bad” and each time you say it, you reinforce that word into your body’s cellular system. The same goes for when someone says “thank you” – a lot of people tend to use the term “No worries” or “no problem”. Your body remembers “Problem” or “Worries”. Be aware too that the people you say these phrases to also hear these words and it can be energy draining for them too.

Personally, as a practitioner, I hear these terms all day every day from clients and I am constantly rephrasing them for my clients  so that it helps them to build their energy up and reminds them to use more positive language and it helps me to not be drained by the words they use.

Consider phrases that get thrown around these days like:

– Fully sick
– That’s so depressing
– Does my head in
– Such a pain in the neck
– etc etc etc

Consider how these literally might effect your energy and your body. Lots of people use affirmations to boost their energy and manifest their desires. The phrases above, when used often become just like affirmations. So choose your phrases wisely.

So here’s a little fun exercise to do this week to start training yourself (and those around you) into some positive language habits.

– Instead of saying “Not bad” when someone asks you how you are, try “good” or “less than great”

– Instead of saying “No worries” or “No problems”, try “It’s a pleasure” (my personal favourite) or “you’re welcome”.

Then, take notice of how you feel at the end of the day after using these new terms and see if you can further enhance it by finding some new phrases for other common sayings you use that might be less than fabulous.

As always, download and save to your desktop or phone or print it and pin it somewhere you’ll see it. When you see it, say it. And if you know someone who would also benefit from this mantra, share it.

Unexpected Treasures

if you choose to look for them, treasures can be found

if you choose to look for them, treasures can be found

On my way into work today, I saw a weed growing from a crack in the pathway.

Not long after that, I saw a crow eating bugs not from the ground or in flight, but from a side view mirror of a parked car and then again at the train station, birds were hunting the crevices of the platforms for food.

What came to mind was this simple little statement:

In the crevices of industry, treasures can be found

That is, if you choose to adapt to your surroundings and the circumstances presented, however unnatural they may feel or be, there can be treasures – if you choose to seek them out.

Happy treasure hunting…

 

 

 

choose to follow your dream

How often do we say “yes” to things that people ask us to do? I say “yes” all too often and then wonder why I haven’t had the time to do what I want to do.

A friend of mine said to me the other day that in order to get to where you want to be, you need be sure that you’re taking yourself and your dreams as seriously as you take everyone else’s dreams. And that’s a pretty big ask for some people (including myself). This friend of mine then progressed with the notion that you need to put your end goal or dream “out there”, write it down, create a vision board, put a charm on a bracelet, whatever it is that reminds you of what your dream is.  Next, write out the steps you need to take in order to achieve your dream. Then, when someone asks you to do something for them, think of your dream, look at your vision board and ask yourself:

1. Will doing this bring me closer to my dream or

 

2. Will doing this take me further away from my dream?

 

Being aware of what brings you closer (or further away from) your dream, gives you power of choice. You can actively choose to do the things that draw your dream closer, rather than sabotaging it before you’ve even started. Knowing that your dreams are just as important as anyone else’s is something which, once realised, gives you the power to make your dreams come to fruition.

 

 

 

 

Following on fr…

Following on from my last post, I have set some wheels in motion.  By no means have I completed any of the items on my list however, it is already having an effect on my business.  Since my last post, I have acquired 3 new clients.  I think it’s vitally important to show the universe that you’re serious about your business and that you’re willing to put in what is required to warrant the trust that all is as it should be before the rush of clientele comes your way, particularly in a health care setting. 

Now I’m keen to look at what else I need to do and what potential positive outcome for my business and my clients can it provide. Reminds me of one of my favorite quotes: 

“Who looks outside dreams. Who looks inside awakens.” – Carl Jung 

Happy awakenings….
