#teachme Sounds a little crazy teaching you how to breathe, but for most of us, we have no idea!
You're most likely thinking - what are you talking about? If I wasn't breathing, I wouldn't be living! Yes this is true which we call involuntary breathing and if this didn't happen then yes you would be physically dead - fact!
However most of the time we are breathing shallow and feeling tired, anxious and possibly unwell. But all that can change and it starts with practicing breathing daily and preferably first thing in the morning.
So why and how? Breathing deep into the lungs does wonders for rejuvenating our physical, mental, spiritual and emotional bodies. As we breath deep into the lungs we expand and detox the body, we allow nutrients and oxygen to flow through the body and nourish the organs.
Emotionally its allows you to be less reactive, you feel calmer and set yourself up to be the best version of yourself.
Mentally your mind becomes less busy and focused.
Spiritually it allows you to get in-tune with yourself and opens yourself up to go deeper into the connection with a greater consciousness - God, spirit, universe etc...
How do we do this? Take some time first thing in the morning for yourself - best when there is no one else is awake.
Find a quiet place to sit with your spine straight. Rest your left hand on your thigh, take your right hand on place your thumb on your right nostril, your pointer and middle finger resting on your forehead and ring finger ready to block the left nostril.
With the right nostril blocked, inhale through left nostril for 7 seconds,
exhale right for 7 seconds, inhale right 7 seconds and exhale left 7 seconds, repeat 7 times...
Sit and feel how amazing you feel!
#wisdom Interesting quote! I find that there are a lot people that I talk to that are so concerned with what other people are believing, doing or have and focus all their attention on this instead of focusing on themselves!
Are you guilty of this? I assume that for the most part we all are in some way, and that's ok.. But ask yourself this:
- am I happy and content with where I am currently in my life? - am I content with my relationships, career / job, wealth, health, spirituality?
- do i find myself complaining or talking about other peoples lives good / bad?
- am I in a constant state of fear of what hasn't happened yet, but could happen?
If this sound like you, then it is most likely that you're living high on adrenaline (that doesn't mean you have to be buzzing all the time, it can be the opposite!), and you're too exhausted to even educate working on yourself - exercise, meditate, eat healthy foods, so you find yourself reaching for foods that do not nourish you mentally, emotionally, physically or spiritually.
You have no time or energy to build your career or business and it get's left to be put on the "I'll do that tomorrow list" but never get's done!
You have no time or energy to give to your relationship or create one if you're single! Intimacy become a thing of the past...
And to think ALL of this is because you're so focused on what others are doing instead of focusing on the person you want to be, the things you want to have, and the things you want to do!
For the most part when we do this, it's because we are feeling a sense of unworthiness and feel deep down that we could never be like that person or we are looking at the bad that someone else has in a way to make us feel ok about our not so good parts... This has to stop as we are all perfectly imperfect just like you!
Ignore the things in life that have absolutely nothing and I mean NOTHING to do with your own journey in life... Catch yourself thinking and saying and then gently say to yourself - "it's ok, you are good enough and you are safe...Guide me in the right direction to finding more love, success and abundance"... And trust in the process....
#teachme Do you desire to attract material things into your life? Do you feel though at times the material things are not manifesting?
And now you're wondering if this 'attraction' stuff really works?
I'm here to tell you this... It really does work, however there is something deeper going on around attraction that's not really spoken about.
Material and Spiritual are the same thing! Sounds crazy right? Now let me explain... For the most part, when we desire material things, we are often feeling lack in our lives and feel that when we reach that material goal then our lives will miraculously change! You think that you'll be liked by more people, that your relationships will be better, that you'll be fitter, sexier, richer etc... This is not true!
See the Universe / God or whomever understands that if you desire more, you have to be able to handle what you've got now and be 100% ok with that - finding gratitude in your lack, in your scarcity, in your pain and suffering... You get it?
Most people seek spirituality because they feel as if something is missing in their life. Because they've been seeking fulfillment in all the wrong places! However when they get that everything they desire they have it already, then material 'things' start to show up!
Ask yourself this: The material goals that you desire, are they your own or for someone else? Do you desire a big house to have family gatherings or to impress your friends?
#motivalionalmindset How many are afraid to start something due to fear of failure? And once you acknowledge this, it's the thing that keeps holding you back in life instead of propelling you forward.
Fear can be your greatest enemy or your greatest motivation...
But make the choice... Fear is a natural part of life and will always offer you a chance to grow and evolve and expand - if you choose to see it that way!
Failure does not mean you've failed! It's your feedback mechanism to ask - how can I do that better or show me a better way! So many great people out there have failed over and over and knew that this was the path to success! Fail fast!
Ask yourself if where you are today is where you want to be in 1, 3, or 5 years from now? So what's really holding you back?
"Feel the Fear and do it anyway"
#throwback Who remembers going to a drive in cinema? It was years since I'd been to one. A few years back I went to a classic drive in up in North Queensland. It still had it's old school charm... However it was nothing like the scene in Grease! lol
It's crazy how times have changed and how things in our life advance... The drive in cinema was a weekend adventure with the family, or group of friends or a boy friend!
What most do not realize that in order to see a movie back in 'the day' you had to wait for it to come out on the big screen. after that it may be played on the TV as a Midday movie or a Sunday movie.
The video player was invented, the DVD player was invented, satellite TV produced on-demand movies and then TV created more channels! Wow movie time became anytime of the day or night! Then the internet came along which offer viewers the chance to watch movies from all over the globe - mostly by illegally downloaded them (God forbid if you had dial up!). And then.... NETFLIX!! wow what a progression!
I recall some of the favourite movies that my boys loved... Toy Story, Home Alone (loved watching them watch this movie as the laughter was pure bliss), Batman etc.... and then the movies that I've found myself going back too... OMG I'll admit it - Dirty Dancing was a fav!
What';s your favourite movie?
#teachme Who has a plan for their life? Who's been taught that if you do this, you'll get that, however it never happens like that at all!
Because it doesn't happen the way you see it happening does not mean that the outcome will change! I trust there are many of you that use techniques to bring you closer to your desired outcome, yet at times you still feel that there is no way in the world this 'thing' is going to manifest itself!
The problem is right there! You 'FEEL' as if it's not going to happen! It's essential that we start to reprogram our mindset - or consciousness to trust that what we desire will manifest in it's own timing! We get caught up in FEAR - False Evidence Appearing Real, because we are looking at what is in front of our eyes and believing because we have done all this work, yet the outcome is not yet before you!
We live in a quantum reality where there are no limitations other than the limits and expectations you put onto yourself!
Before I explain any further, it's essential that you understand a few important things.
1. Every moment of your life is offering you an opportunity to grow and evolve and become the best version of yourself for you!
2. What it is you desire can often be for all the wrong reasons like - getting a job to impress your parents or partner, driving a fancy car to impress or 'fit' in with your friends, living in a big fancy house so that others will look at you and see you're successful! So are your dreams and desires truly yours?
3. Know that before we get anything in our lives, we must be able to be grateful! Start being grateful every day for the little things - the bank account that is yet to grow, your current car, your body as you look in the mirror, your partner or children or boss that is challenging you... All these things will make way for being grateful for the bigger things that will eventually come to you.
4. Be aware that sometimes the things you 'think' you want, when you get it, you don't want it at all or what you think you want, 99.9% of the time is that you already have it... You just can't see it!
Life does not happen in a straight line... How boring would it be if it did! Life happens with many twist and turn that offer you an opportunity to grow and evolve - if you choose to do so!
Welcome the squiggly lines and be grateful for the! The saying 'Fail Fast' really is about getting you back on track to the desired outcome... The vision you see when you close your eyes...

Let's book a 15 min session and see how you can transform your life so that you're using tools to consciously creating success, abundance and love!
throwback Who was your favourite super hero growing up? Mine was Wonder Woman. My boys ask me all the time that question. I then wonder what it is in her that I like?
I think back and recall there was a TV series (I don't remember it in detail). And if this show may have influenced my love for Wonder Woman. But I guess for the most part, it's what she portrays as a woman!
She was courageous, strong, sensual, sassy, all the things as a little or big girl we desire to be. Or honestly - who you really are!
My son always ask me - what super hero power would you have if you could choose any? He'd sometimes stare at me with crazy eye's if I'd say things like - to be able to heal the world or make people happy... I guess that was not super enough! So I'd have to find another like teleportation...
Now this got me thinking - we all have super powers but we just don't access them or even acknowledge that they are our powers. How do you know what your's are?
Take some timeout to find some stillness. Think a moment about the people you spend time with or the work that you do. What is it that you a fully in your power when you are with them? Is it that as you are sitting and talking when they are in need you just listen. Or do you instantly feel guided in a loving way to offer up an alternative solution to their problem? Do you love it when you're exercising with others? What is it that as you're doing it, makes your heart sing, makes you feel so passionate that you just say "this is why I do what I do"....
This is your super hero power!
Find a way to use it everyday as when you ooze with passion in all that you do, it's creates a ripple affect in the Universe to spread to others...
#wisdom Be careful what you wish for because you might just get it! I recently experienced a situation where I was shown a result that I had desired. Now some would be thinking that this might be a good thing and depending upon the circumstances, yes it may we be!
But for this particular situation, there is a some more growth for me in it in a positive way, and being mindful of my core values and that they are not overlooked (which I trust happens to us all!)...
Now as this situation revealed itself, I started to reflect back on a few things. 1. I recall going back and visualizing this outcome. 2. I recalled times in the situation it was extremely challenging for me and I was showing tendencies that I was not comfortable with.
Of course this made me question again what it is that we truly desire at our core, but may not necessarily want! Conflicting thoughts right?
So stay with me here because this is the wisdom right here!. The Law Of Attraction is working all the time, but not as fast as we desire - or is it? See we are constantly attracting and not always the things we think we want, but we actually attract the things we need in life in order to grow and expand and become the person we need to become in order to be the best versions of ourselves!
So it goes like this: You start meditating daily on the things you desire. You have a vision board you look at daily. And for one hour a day you may "feel" that what you desire is possible and believable and expect it - just like the secret says!
So get this... For the next 23 hours, you for the most part are thinking and feeling fear based negative thoughts and then wondering why the heck this LOA crap isn't working? It is just not in the way you desire because it takes constant reprogramming of your mindset to create new pathways and implement tools to create your reality!
So what did I learn from the above experience? Before you start weaving your magic, consider this: do I really in my core want this or am I attached to the 'idea'? See for the most part, we are attracted to someone or something for the actually idea of them or it and not for the experience itself!
Go over the things you desire and really sit with a sense of - asking why it is that you desire this. Then go deeper and ask what will it bring or change for you. Have a look around you and explore you life as what you'll notice is that what you desire, you already have!
