Daily steps to conscious awakening

Daily steps to conscious awakening

Being human is a mix of conscious and unconscious behaviors that are nurtured and are part of nature. What if I told you that we are far greater than what you have told you are capable of. As a society we have been programmed with sets of rules that we have been told to abide by. Rules and laws created by the government, macro and micro levels, as we grow our brains become limited in what we can and can’t do and by so doing we shut off. We have forgotten to be joyous of the little things, we can no longer see the beauty of nature, the tweeting of birds the universe sending us signs and guidance. We are now blinkered to the point where we are operating on auto pilot. I was watching Dr Joe Dispenza’s video  and he explained this disassociation really well. He states that our bodies become so good at performing daily routines that it becomes a habit. We get to the point of automatically responding to situations without engaging the brain. We become immune to the signs from ” source/universe” the synchronicity, serendipity and messages we can receive from the universe have become unnoticed.

Personally I am living daily reminding myself how best to become the best version of myself, not as an act but as a way of life. It’s not easy because we are faced with challenges daily. What I’ve discovered is not that we become immune to life’s challenges, it is how we face and deal with the challenges that will make a difference to our well being. The heart and the brain work hand in hand, you cannot have awakening without the other, they have to sync and become symbiotic in order to elevate oneself. There are a few helpful tips that you can work towards awakening your soul

  • Gratitude is an integral
  • open your heart and soul, having empathy without any sense of judgement toward anyone or anything. you will notice that you will face some challenges, it’s not an easy path however it is exciting
  • you will become averse to negativity, while you are soul cleansing you are detoxing your surroundings. The universe will probably help you with that, those people will probably just disappear from your life!
  • you become hungry for knowledge, to better yourself as you become aware that you are here on earth to serve a purpose. You begin to find your path, if you haven’t already done so!
  • self love, when you love yourself and are content with who you are, you are open to love and respect those around you
  • practice patience whatever situation befalls you, dealing with it consciously with awareness. When you practice patience issues or challenges will become bearable and will only become a minor hurdle.

Conscious awakening is a way of life, integrate these steps into your daily life and your life will become fulfilled. Serendipity, synchronicity and miracles will become more pronounced in your life. I am living day to day trying to incorporate these steps in my life, at times it is a challenge and I am consciously reviewing my actions before I can react. It is baby steps and an ongoing process hoping to become ”a way of life”.

How do you raise your consciousness? What steps do you take daily to live a fulfilling and abundant life?

Synchronicity and consciousness, what’s your perception?

Synchronicity and consciousness, what’s your perception?

We are all connected as humans, to the earth and the universe therefore we will often communicate and given guidance. This is all central to one, some might identify it as God, Source,  Divine or nothing at all depending on your personal belief. I believe we are not solitary in this world (and by world I mean the whole universe, and mind you we are only a speck in the milky way). If you think about it, what we have on earth, the minerals, water and gases – we have components of these and we do need them in order to maintain our health. What we have on earth is replicated under the sea.

The body has electric charges – look at the function of the heart, it has electric charging taking place for it to continue beating, that is one but not all examples. If we have that capability this means we have energy, and what is energy when we relate it to a human being, would you call it your soul. Is that what makes you who you are? So if you think of all the components that makes us as humans plus the soul and energy we produce and possess then it sounds right that we are connected to each other and the universe.

A lot of signs come to us sometimes we just don’t notice it especially when we are closed off and we are not conscious or in other terms widely known ”present”. Many a times we are living in auto pilot mode where we are not aware of the beauty around us. The world is such an amazing place and at times we lose focus and we lack gratitude of this experience. Our world is full of it’s own energy which we can draw from, it’s energy is abundant and infinite and we can use this to ground us when we are feeling unbalanced/unsettled. This is a free resource you do not need to pay a subscription fee its there for the taking! So why are only a few people are aware of this, why are there only a few with the ”awakened consciousness”? We lead busy hectic lives that leave us no time to reflect and have time to communicate with our soul, continuously doing this as a human race has resulted in a closed unconscious soul. We have lost our connection with ”our Source” therefore we are blind to the signs and guidance that is given to us.

Synchronicity and law of attraction are connected, that is my opinion. The reason I think they are is ”we attract what we desire” and by so doing the frequency of which we begin to notice this brings about the synchronicity. I will reiterate, it is my personal opinion and I look forward to hearing other’s opinions. Here is an example that happened on 4th July, small as it might sound. I had been reading about putting thoughts into action and had made a Instagram ”as you think so shall you be”, what we think becomes reality if we put emotion, whether positive or negative. I embarked on my train journey to work and whilst standing in the rush hour packed train a girl had with a black tote bag with the words ” Dream your desires to come true” that made me smile as it resonated with what I’d been reading earlier and for me I thought that is the universe telling me that it’s listening and it will be bring those thoughts towards me. It made me smile even if it might not be significant. It also made me realize that I had had a wave of consciousness, of awareness which I need to be consciously aware and work at it until it becomes part of my lifestyle without purposely practicing it. I am working towards it becoming a part of me not something I have to remember to do.

The past couple of weeks I had to review my attitude towards my children, work colleagues, friends and strangers around me. Firstly I had to stop passing judgement, practice patients (especially behind the wheel) and to realize that we are all connected and everyone deserves love. It has been really exciting and an eye opener to put into place these steps. What good is it, to preach goodness and consciousness when it is not resonated in your life. To be conscious here are a few pointers to head in the right direction

  • be in the moment, be present in your surroundings, absorb and articulate the detail around you
  • be healthy – a healthy mind needs a healthy body, when you eat healthily you become aware of the goodness of nourishing foods that feed your body, mind,  and soul
  • having a sense of purpose, we were created to serve on this earth, each and everyone of us has a purpose. When you become mindful and aware of who you are you will find your purpose.
  • conscious awareness – become unbiased towards everyone and everything around you. I have noticed my patience when i’m driving has improved my view of people, and have become to accept that everyone is where there are supposed to be at that time, whether they are driving at snail pace.
  • you will start resonating and connecting with like minded people who are on the same path as you

As I’m finishing off this blog post, I’ve been listening to Dr Joe Dispenza, Gregg Braden and Bruce Lipton on YouTube and they are discussing becoming conscious, when we choose to make changes to our lives,  the vibration levels that opens up the door to your subconscious this enabled by 0.1 Hz signal between your heart and your brain (heart brain harmony) talk about synchronicity.

Holistic approach to arthritic pain

Holistic approach to arthritic pain

Pain is not something we love to experience, It stops us from enjoying the simple things in life, let alone going on about our daily lives. The last few weeks have been challenging for my father as he was recently diagnosed as having arthritis causing troublesome pain and discomfort. Arthritis is a condition that affects joints causing stiffness, swelling decreasing the use of limbs, there are two types of this condition – rheumatoid and osteoarthritis.

  • Rheumatoid arthritis is auto immune, meaning, your immune system is attacking the cells lining your joints.
  • Osteoarthritis usually prevalent in over 50’s can be due to severely damaged joints or damaged by a previous existing conditions

To relieve the pain he was prescribed codeine, which is beneficial in suppressing pain and reducing discomfort however it has it’s limitations.

  • it could lead to mental and or physical dependence
  • pain killers are known to cause constipation

In conclusion, long term use of codeine is not advisable therefore we should explore other options that we can utilize so the condition can become manageable. I suggested trying a holistic approach, my dad is not really one who has used oils or understands the benefits but he was willing to try anything to relieve the pain. I concocted a portion which he has been using for the last week. I needed to make an oil that will promote pain relief, relaxation and a sense of calm.

I made the massage oil using the following oils for their benefits, I used a 30ml dropper bottle mixed the lavender and bergamot in the sweet almond oil. Inverted gently and hey presto! It has such an amazing fragrance too. Ensure you use amber colored bottle as it will keep the oil fresh for longer and will protect the contents from UV light.

  • Sweet almond oil (carrier oil I will use to add my essential oils) for its beautiful absorption and high levels of vitamin E, it is also great for relieving muscle ache and pain.
  • Lavender oil is widely known for its use in relieving tension and muscle pain, the fragrance is so relaxing that my dad noticed he has been sleeping better when massaged at night. (I used 6 drops)
  • With it’s citrus sweet smell Bergamot oil is a perfect oil to combine with lavender. Bergamot has anti inflammatory and analgesic properties making it a perfect component for this massage oil. (I used 6 drops).

It’s only been a week but my mum has been massaging this oil on my dad’s arthritic joints and she seems to think it is aiding in the pain management. My dad is never one to try out things he is not aware of, so for him to persist with this for a week can only  mean he is noticing the benefits too, plus he gets to have a free massage from my mum, its  a win win!!!

What other methods have you used to relieve the aches and pains you have experienced?

Does the law of attraction work?

Does the law of attraction work?

”Be careful what you wish for”, the famous saying we all blurt out in our day to day conversations. This saying is so powerful as I associate it with the ”law of attraction”, attracting like for like. What we put out there is what we receive, do you believe in that law, that we are part of the universal matrix of energy and frequencies? The energy that we expend out there we get the same back. We are governed by laws of the universe we live in, what others may term as ”karma”. People often say they find the things they don’t like manifest in their reality quicker than what they truly love. That I find is how our mindset is designed, we are creatures of fear, and let’s remember, fear is an emotion as much as happiness and sadness are. We fear a lot about lack of money, no one loving us, or having a bad day. What if we program our minds to think positively? Do you think then we will attract what we love? We have to be really careful about what we say because when we instill emotion in the things we say those that we say we then attract. The flip side to this is how difficult it is to be positive when you are not in the head space or when your surroundings are not supporting the emotion.

A few years ago i purchased the renowned ”The Secret” book to try and understand how the law of attraction works and to also aid me in shifting my mindset. I began to understand that we can create our own reality and our own heaven. I am from a Christian background and growing up I was taught that when we die we either go to heaven (if we’re good) or we go to hell! I lived my life according to that rule, until I went through some life experiences that led me to searching for ”my truth”. I came to realize that I am my own creator of the reality I want to live in, I can create and enjoy heaven, while I’m still on this earth. To live life to the fullest and live a life of peace, abundance and positivity all governed by the greatest law of all, ”Love”. By living your life to the fullest with love and positivity, everything around you will support a beautiful reality. I have not reached that ultimate state of living, I am a work in progress and living day to day reminding myself that I am a co creator of my reality. What are the steps we need to take in order to lead a fulfilling reality?

Firstly It starts with us, our inner being, the soul within us. Being of a mind that is free from judging, free from negative influences, that’s not to say we are free from life struggles. It is important to recognize how we deal with the hiccups that are thrown our way. I remember how I used to struggle with slow drivers in front of me, that used to annoy me so much I’d be cursing in my car, winding myself up and getting agitated, guess what? The more I got annoyed the more I had slow driver occurrences.After reading and getting to understanding the law of attraction I realized I was actually attracting more of this so I decided to switch my mindset and accepting of the slow drivers, sometimes acting as if I wasn’t noticing them, I slowly started noticing It wasn’t happening as much as it used to before. I became more patient and accepting that the driver in front of me, had as much right to be in that place at that given time.

Believing in your self worth,valuing your being and loving yourself are key to finding your higher self and attracting the things you desire. This is no magic, it is something each and everyone of us is entitled to. Spread your wings and discover your potential and most of all, love yourself more than you’ve ever loved!

 

Change your mindset and discover your purpose!

Change your mindset and discover your purpose!

”Allow your passion to become your purpose and it will one day become a profession”

How many of us have a hobby that they enjoy and keep it as ”just a hobby”. Many a times I have faced a lot of mental blocks, more my own doing than anyone criticizing me. Personally I have suffered with confidence issues arising from childhood when I constantly was berated not to speak up, told that I would amount to not much with my scatterbrain (I do have that quality unfortunately). Growing up in an African family household you were taught to accept things as they came and told to respect the elders and never to question or reply as that was deemed back chatting. I grew up being very safe, afraid to take chances/risks or thinking outside the box.

Fast forward 20 years or so that lack of confidence seeped into my adult life, as much as I was great at my job, relationships be they friendships or romantic ones I was never the one who questioned or spoke up when I was hurting. I accepted matters as they were presented. This was my downfall when I came to separation with a long term partner. I had to accept fault to the breakdown of the relationship because I was never outspoken during the relationship I think I might have been what a lot of people would term ”doormat”. I now believe, if there are issues in any type of relationship, one must voice them and this does not mean harshly or rudely, just voice your feelings and communicate. I am still a work in progress finding my feet and working towards ”self belief”. I am a great adviser however not great when it comes to following my advice.

The past few months I have taken bolder steps to work towards believing that ” I am valuable” and that ”I can do whatever I set my heart on”. I have set up a personal challenge to start working on my passion of holistic living and well being and sharing what  I read/research about. I love the idea of being mindful and aligning my heart soul and spirit. One of my exciting passions is exploring endless possibilities of using natural products on my skin and my hair. If you’re interested take a look at one of my blogs here. Everyday is a learning curve for me and I embrace the people and opportunities coming my way. I am working toward a life where I serve people by doing something I absolutely love and I am slowly discovering we, as human beings, are curious creatures and we all love to share and find information, this is an undying trend. There is so much to discover and share on this planet. What makes us that bit special as human race is we are all different, if we accept and embrace that difference, we learn so much from each other. Ask yourself, what tickles your fancy, what is it you do that brings a smile to your face and makes those neurons dance with joy? I believe, if you can answer that, then my dear friend you have found your passion. Explore your passion and discover what you can do with it to serve the world.

”I’ve no special talent, just passionately curious”…………Albert Einstein.
