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.

As always, download and save this Monday Mantra Image 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, please share it.


Dana, this is the universe speaking



A few things have come to my attention recently which appears to be a culmination of some work I’ve been doing on myself around my abilities to see dead people.  Some time ago, this was happening quite often. I’ve got stories of a business owner who still watches over the family business and priest I knew when I was a little child who came to say he’d passed on, almost to the day. That said, as quickly as it started happening,they seemed to quite suddenly disappear again.

Fast Forward to 3 or 4 months ago when I started working on getting them back. I’ve had a number of Kinesiology balances around this, particularly the fear surrounding it and have done a lot of research on ways to develop this skill, and ways to help alleviate the fear that sometimes creeps in around it.


Last week, I was going about my morning walk when out the corner of my eye popped a young boy with a yellow cap, hiding behind a tree. And when I turned my head to look, he was gone.  Familiar with this sort of happening, I walked around the tree to see no one. There was no one there.  They’re back! But how do I get them to stay for a chat? I only ever get to see them for split second at a time…



And as if that wasn’t enough, the other day, my man suggested I watch a TED talk about meditation (you can see it here: 10 Mindful Minutes). And it somehow ignited a thought that at those moments when I’ve seen these spirits, or had a prophetic dream that it has always felt “it just is” or “in the now” and that this was perhaps the best way to get to a point where I could chat with these visitors.


Today, I happened across an article about neuroscience research into mediums and what happens in the mind while communicating with the dead. What I got from this article was essentially that people’s minds were not focussed on any one thing, but on nothing in particular at all, no imagery, no memory, no emotion, they were in the moment. And then this afternoon, a beautiful elderly neighbor of mine was asking me about televisions. “I’d normally ask my son but he’s passed away now” she said with tears in her eyes. It’s moments like that I wish I had already mastered this skill. But in that moment, I realised that not only am I meant to master it, I’m meant to do more with it and that by sending all of these little signs or pieces of information the universe is telling me that now is the time to do so. And who am I to argue with the universe?!
