Do you know Gratitude makes us joyful?  Practicing gratitude can become a daily practice.   This can take place by having a gratitude journal or saying out loud what you are grateful for, in life.  These small gestures help in extraordinary ways and open our eyes to what is happening around us.  This helps you slow down and stop to think of small blesses from the Universe. 

Whenever you are angry or in pain shift your thinking to being grateful for anything this really changes your perspective.  This shifts your thinking and you will notice your moods changes.   You will even notice small things that you can easily pass you by and help you appreciate the little things in life.

Practicing gratitude has helped me in many ways, I have seen small blessings in everything and been able to shift my thinking with time. Whenever I may see myself in a rut and can’t seem to shake myself out of a funk. Changing my thoughts to the smallest blessing brings such a joy my brain automatically changes and I always find light at the end of the tunnel.

So, when one of those daunting moments come upon you shift your thinking and think of one thing to be grateful for in life. You will see the ultimate difference in your mood and thinking pattern.

Much love everyone.

Every day is a new beginning. If we are seeking new beginnings look around you and see the small new beginnings to be able to really appreciate the big ones.

There is a new beginning when you wake up in the morning and open your eyes. You see another day, you have a new beginning. You step out of your bed and stretch that is a new beginning and you are heading to face another day.

When we head to our day activities every step is a new beginning this new day is not going to be the same as yesterday. Although it may feel the same but it is not the same at all. Every breath we take is a new beginning in a small way it shows us we have to appreciate life as it is for us.

The sun shines again or it rains or snows again but it is a new day and that call you get is not the same as yesterday. It is something different every day there is something new to look forward to in life. Appreciate these small treasure so we do not ever feel stuck, you may want to travel and see the world but the Universe can be showing you. The world is inside of you and you have to appreciate everything surrounding you.

A old leaf falls off a tree and a new one spings up and we do not see this because we are caught up. We do not see the changes around us with our own lives the small ones that eventually turns into big life changes and we ask ourselves where the time went. It is because we are always living ahead in our minds. If we center ourselves and stay still for just a few minutes instead of constantly going we would realize the beauty surrounding us and realize the change we want to see has to begin with us.

So, next time you say I am ready for a new beginning. Remember every day is a new beginning so do not get so caught up looking at the big changes and truly appreciate the small changes in every day moments. You will realize you already begun the process of this new beginning this morning.

Thoughts create Reality

What you think, you can manifest towards your life. Thoughts and words go hand in hand and can bring forth your reality. They say what you say and believe is what brings forth in your day to day life. That is why you have to be so careful what you say inwardly and outwardly.

Young children thinking can be affected from a very young age. Which can have an effect on their lives with the way they see things from a young age.

There is so much violence happening around the globe and children and teenagers are involved, and many are asking themselves why. Well, the answer lies in what we let our little ones view and take in from young. What is being put in their subconscious mind from an early age?

I can tell you a lot of cartoons and movies have a lot of violence and graphical images, that are being put in a young one mind from the age of 3. Many are giving there kids video games and having them unsupervised with their internet and tv time. Some children are even more tech-savvy than their own parents which are even scarier.

Whatever they are being shown on their devices they are putting into their subconscious minds. That, unfortunately, leaves an effect on them for a lifetime.

When positive alignment is placed around someone, to view or put in their minds. They will transform their thinking to positive thoughts only and bring forth positive thinking, words, and actions. Our subconscious mind is where our deepest thoughts lie and some thoughts go way back. This leads to our conscious mind and it eventually brings forth in our day to day lives.

There is a quote from Jesus Christ which states ask and it will be given, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you.

Our thoughts go the same way with our actions, when we think of our lives and envision our future we must think positive. This is because we are asking the Universe for assistance, seek with all your mind and heart. When you are seeking for an outcome you are searching for results and when you bring positive alignment to it, you already envision a healthy outcome.

Knock and the door will be opened, always keep your thoughts on the positive side of a request or situation. This is because you have asked the Universe for assistance and it will help you, once you believe with all your heart and mind.

Your mind is a powerful tool and you need to find ways to keep it on a positive aspect. Every day find 5 positive affirmations and say it daily, this can help when negativity creeps in and it always does. You will see the difference in situations when it doesn’t go your way.

Always choose different thoughts and your actions will fall in line.

There is another saying that I have heard once or twice before by many motivational speakers. Fake it until you make it. This switches your brain to have you thinking, you have already reached your goal. The Universe will fall in align and help you align your thoughts to your belief with time.

Expect a positive outcome and it will come. Expect luck and it will come. What we determine, is what comes forth in our lives.

Take 5 minutes a day to visualize your success, breath deeply when you are doing this meditation. Close your eyes and focus on the goal being acquired. This will help when you become stressed or when negativity begins to creep inside.

Try to remember positive moments when you acquired your goal. This will help with getting the feel, taste and smell you had at the time. Use this feeling when envisioning your future goals and see how it affects your thoughts when under high pressure.

When you envision the success, it will be brought forth in your day to day life. Tell the Universe exactly what you want and leave it all in the higher force hands to deal with, you have already started your process or done your part. When you let go and not continually dwelling on it, you are putting out that you are expecting this to come forth in your favor.

Happiness is a state of mind, so always be happy. Happiness is no means to an end of problems. It is something that you mindfully let happen to you.

Winners are always happy even when their world can be tumbling down. Nothing in life is permanent and we can always change circumstances but it always begins with your thoughts, towards everything.

Never let outside influences affect you, and how you see yourself. You can control circumstances and make them into opportunities and the Universe will bless you.

Failure is never a failure, it’s another chance and a new beginning of another book or chapter.

Most importantly, always practice living in the present. You can envision the future, but you must always make happiness a habit.

Much love everyone.

Anything is possible once you put your faith in God. He is always there to guide and protect you when you feel like no one is around. He is the one who lifts you up when you are down and he is the one who is always around.

God is the one who was always around from the start. He is creation, life and lives in everyone heart. God is creation and he is the one who is Universal.

He lives in all of us and when we die, he leaves with us. He created us and we are one because of his love for us. Many question the existence of God but doesn’t realize God is all around. Each and every moment of our lives is for God.

Anything is possible for him, if you believe in his love, Universal Love. Positive mindset is not always easy and that is the time we have to put all our focus and eyes on something more. Always look at the bigger picture when in doubt and see the difference in the outcome.

God gave us a mind and our mind helps us manifest what we want in our lives. Our thoughts can be helpful or destructive depending on how we preserve our direction in our lives. Our mind is designed to help us foster and cultivate what we bring forth in our lives and assist in the impossible to the possible.

Our thoughts become our actions and this is why when we keep our mind focus on the bigger picture at difficult times, this can help us see a clearer vision of our lives. The Universe, our conscious and subconscious mind are all linked together and helps us cultivate the impossible to the possible,in our day to day lives.

Much love everyone.

 “ The law of attraction states that whatever you focus on, think about, read about, and talk about intensely, you’re going to attract more of into your life.” – Jack Canfield.

I am successful

I am capable

I am worthy of all the good in my life

I create win-win relationships

I am proficient in my abilities

I am powerful

I deserve success

We must affirm these and many more every morning. It is the stepping stones of our lives, it is what brings us to the next place and the next level.

The universe is created for us to manifest our goals into the world. We have to think of it, to achieve it and embrace it.

There is a saying the harder the battle is, the sweeter the victory would be for us. Whatever it is we want to achieve, it will be a difficult road and may even feel overwhelming at times. Those are the moments we have to feel it and embrace it because we are getting closer to our breakthrough.

Each morning we must take ownership of our lives, write down that goal, find a way and test yourself. Take that extra step, envision yourself reaching that goal, feel the victory and embrace it. You will reach that peak moment, once you show up and make the sacrifice and take a bold step every day.

Watch your movements, how you take each step and be consistent with yourself each morning and show up. Create the life you envision for your self, know your mission and you will know what will drive you.

Create your life your mission and never make it about your position. Each day look at yourself in the mirror and remember your mission and push for that vision. We all have it, I know deep in your heart you know you want more in your life.

Always know the way to what you are doing in this life and with every movement. Ask yourself why am I doing this? Be mission-driven, make your life mission-driven and you will see the difference every morning.

Whatever it is you want in life remember to ask yourself. Why do you want it? Be clear about what you want. Write down your goals daily for what you want to achieve. Feel every moment of your life because its only one you have left. Be a good receiver on everything and be grateful for small blessings.

Make every action with what you want to expect in life. Create that destiny you envision. See abundance in everything and always be consistent. If you see it, believe it, envision it every morning, you will reach that goal in this life. The universe is always on your side.

“Nothing can dim the light that shines from within.” Maya Angelou

Be the light that is missing from this world. The light that so many need and want, bring light to those around you and you will attract the same into your life.

Move with mindfulness and see how the world changes around you. Let your light shine and never let anyone dim this out within you. Never let this world take away the joy, unconditional love or peace that you carry within you, you never know whose life you can be impacting.

Our world is in darkness and many have lost hope. It is the few that have the light within and hope that can take out the darkness around us. Aspire to be the light the world need. Where ever you go be the light you need to be, in the work place, the bar, a taxi or rushing for that appointment. Be the light, let your light shine inside you, so the world outside can see.

There have been many inspirational persons who have walked among us and let their light shine. Many have left a great impact and left us with many teachings and examples to follow.

Now it is our time to let our light shine and follow our light within each of us. Let the light within you always shine so everyone will embrace your light and you can grow and help others who maybe struggling to find their light.

“Your mind is everything. What you think you become. ” – Buddha

Our thoughts is a powerful tool that can direct our life and determine if we can become a product of greatness or negativity.

We must always make it our task to protect our energies around us and surround ourselves with people and situations that will fill your cup. Never let the bitterness of this world get the better of you as, each of us have a individual right to harvest greatness and send out positive vibes to the universe.

I believe and have learned what you think you become as many successful and spiritual leaders have taught. To stay on a level head of peace and tranquility we must not engage in gossip, negative conversations or partake in any sort of news that may switch your energy.

We live in a angry world if you really continually look at the negative side but if you stop and look and see the beauty in this world you would be amazed. There are many great leaders, motivators and situations happening around us daily that makes many smile. A simple moment as a birth of child, a team winning a football match or a teenager helping a elderly woman crossing the road are moments that take your breath away. These are the simple moments that make a huge difference in many lives.

Let excellence be your brand and to cultivate this you have to think of greatness and surround yourself with greatness. Watch your peers, your conversations , even your eating habits all these routines have a effect on your mental and spiritual health. Make a list daily of what you are thankful for, if you are having a hard time thinking of anything just remember you have life, and that’s a second chance to make a change.

Let us look deep within ourselves to find our true purpose and find the passion that burns within us to reach our highest self. If you haven’t found your passion push to reach a goal. List a goal and persuade it with your fullest. If you fail you are getting closer to your ultimate goal and greatest potential. You will find that passion and that flame .

Always put God first, that higher source,that ultimate help. He will guide you with your energies, passion, flame and purpose. Always be thankful and grateful this will aid in protecting your energies and thinking.

Remember greatness is the goal and always think of the ultimate goal. Never dwell in what you do not have and always put your mind on your vision, your future and reaching that target. What you think, you become and we should all think I am greatness.

Our world is created in a way that each of us have powers to embrace each moment in our lives. Each day is a new beginning but there is always that extra tingle in everyone when a year ends. Many tend to reflect and look into their lives. I myself begin to reflect on everything in my life and set out my intentions for the year ahead.

There are a few steps I practice every now and then,to help me start a new month, chapter or year. I will share with you these steps that I have tried and succeeded with to embrace my journey in this life.

Making a list of tasks I am inspired to take on. You can set this out for the year, each new month, a new chapter in your life or even a weekly task list. These “to do lists” is not your regular list of items to take on. It is a list of tasks that is leading to a particular goal or aim in life.

Make a list of tasks that you are unsure about and leave it in the universe hands. Writing has helped with setting out my intentions, I am unsure about and seeing what the universe has to offer with these intentions. It is a wait and see game when you do a task and leave the rest all to the universe, you can see wonders, once you believe.

See the world with fresh eyes. I love doing this, from time to time. Every time I get bored with a activity or I find myself in a routine which by the way I hate. I always take it like its the first time, get the excitement into the routine. Your mind is a wonderful gift and when something seems new ,you play this game every now and then. You will see a change in the outlook and outcome of any given situation.

Reflect. Yes I said that one, think back even when you don’t want to. Don’t do this only once a year , try doing this every now and then. Whenever you feel stuck. Think back. Whenever you feel like you failed. Think back. Whatever it may be just look back and you will see progress. Just remember you made it this far, you can go even further.

Set small intentions. We all have those big intentions but we forget those small intentions. For instance if you plan to have a home cook meal more often, just coming home to start that pot is a good step. You made progress with your healthy lifestyle, if your big intention for the year is to eat healthy.

Each action has a effect and we all have something we want to see change or improve for 2019. These are a few tips I would share with you. Hope you try them and embrace each moment this universe has to offer.
