The Gift Of Being Present.

The Gift Of Being Present.

Picture the perfect deserted island with pure white sand sliding between your toes as you walk peacefully. It is plentiful with all that you need to nourish yourself. The sun shines brightly and shelter abounds allowing fresh breeze to maintain a comfortable temperature. You have no worries in the world, no meeting to rush to, no traffic to contest and no financial responsibilities. Your mood is one of complete joy and relaxation, the ultimate emotional cocktail.

Now look away from this writing and what is it you see? Just the objects. Yes objects of this reality right now. Which one is your favourite? Why? It makes you feel good right? It is part of your reality. Thank the Universe that it is yours.

Look at your partner, your child or children, or if alone, think of someone you adore.

Breathe in the beautiful feeling that they exude. This is your reality. Thank the Universe that they are in your life.

Sit quietly and hold your other hand. Feel it slowly and discover the shape of your palm, the dip before you connect to your fingers, the lines, the creases, the softness or roughness. Sit quieter still and feel the energy in your hands. Your life source, your own enchanting essential self vibrating gently with energy. How incredible that you can touch and sense so much through your finger tips. This is you. Thank the Universe for all of your senses for they allow you experience all of the obvious and subtle beauty that crosses your path each moment.

Make yourself a promise that tomorrow you will notice three ultimate sensory experiences.

It might mean really smelling the delicious coffee before it reaches your lips. Truly smelling it. It could be poignantly noticing the soft fur of your pet as you give it a morning cuddle. Perhaps it will be breathing in the sea air and honestly noticing the freshness it delivers to the insides of your nostrils.

There are many more wonderful experiences that you will discover if only you will allow yourself to be present. You do not need to go on holidays to that picture perfect tranquil island to enjoy life. No it is in the moments that you truly allow yourself the gift of being present that will shape your everyday into something magnificent. It costs you nothing and yet rewards you endlessly.

Your Path To Success.

Your Path To Success.

There are paths walked by many and yet not always appropriate for all. Some will diverge, put heads together and concoct the new and different life experiences that they will live during this lifetime and that others can choose to live.

It is not to say that one path is better than another. Simply they are different. From this difference arises more choice and an increase in possibilities. Ideas are given testing grounds and for those whom these paths or even lifestyles resonate with, they will be naturally drawn. For those who do not resonate, they may try to or use their minds and wills to follow the same path but their heart’s will become heavier.

If this is your experience right now perhaps it is time to explore what paths are on offer. Allow yourself to discover the one that excites you. Follow it, trust in the change and know that if it is moving your core and making you feel alive then it is in alignment with your desires.

Perchance, should more of the paths you see not stir a significant interest then it could be timely for you to be the pioneer and charter your own new terrain. It could be a place, a project, a role, a way of solving a challenge that no-one else has knowledge of.

Take courage when undertaking new projects, significant life changes, start ups or implementing your visions, for they are not limited to you and your life. Through you, these initiatives will always contribute to wider humanity, communities, families and most often, your own family. Often times, to live your own life fully, this stepping forth into a not-yet-known experience really is your only choice.

You know that you feel the desire, the pull of this calling, so allow yourself to be the servant of this direction.

You do not need to push, not unless you “believe” that you have to push! Focus on the desire and then allow the flow. The secret here is to notice all of the small gifts along the way for they are here to remind you that yes, this feels good, my desires are becoming realities and the Universe is delivering.

You are all creative for you all create your reality.

Whether it is a reality that fills your soul and heart with joy or one that disappoints, come back to you and survey the beliefs you have. What are your default thoughts that you entertain? What are the opinions you have of yourself and do they support you or undermine you?

Keep choosing. Choose the positivity, choose love, choose possibility, choose to believe in magic and so it will all be yours.

Set your self the small task of checking in with your thoughts for one hour each day. Simply notice what they are. Do not indulge your thoughts and avoid judging yourself for having them. Ok, now what areas or what thoughts or opinions would you like to tweak? How can you transform these to better reflect the happiness, success, or even love that you desire?

Put this into practice. If you tell yourself for example, that your brother is more successful and really has the business brain in the family and you don’t, shift this into a higher more self serving gear. “My brother is so clever at business and how wonderful that I can tap into his knowledge and experience AND add my talent and skill for relating so well to people/customers!” How much better do you feel when you read this?

Eliminate any of the competitive thoughts or comparisons with others. You are you. We all have our unique set of gifts, talents, passions and experiences. Focus on this. All of the other stuff is simply time-wasting static that diverts you from your true course. Do an inventory of all your skills, talents, capabilities, experience and list what gives you ultimate pleasure. This is very important, for when we come from pure desire, we always succeed.

If we are only focusing on money then that’s all you get, money. If you are focusing on all of the joys of success, then guess what? This will be your experience: a joyful exciting journey and success that truly reflects a rich happiness.

You can have it all. Anyone who told you that you cannot, didn’t have it all.

Make your decision today to choose to live a fulfilling and successful life on every level and take note of all of the signs that this is your reality now. Gratitude will only ever bring you closer to your wildest dreams.
