Law of attraction card reading for the week of 16 October 2017

law of attraction

Welcome to my weekly law of attraction reading. I am using the deck from Esther and Jerry Hicks :

For the week of the 16 October 2017 I pulled the following card:

I can turn a downward spiral upward.

As you focus on the best of what you do have, even if it only is a small part of your experience, the Law of Attraction will now bring you more of the essence of that. And so, you can replace a “downward spiral” with a fast-moving “upward spiral” by simply directing your thoughts more to things you do want.

Inspirational quote of the week – Live your dream

inspirational quote

Hello everyone for this week’s inspirational quote:

The Life I am living now is the life I dreamed about years ago. – Ralph Smart

This quote is so true for me. I am originally from Germany and I felt the urge to move to Australia in 2007. I felt so blessed when I was able to stay with such an amazing homestay family in Waverley, Sydney. Thank you so much for being such a great family and friends. I felt very welcome and integrated from the very first day when I arrived. Blessings to you and your family.

Now I live in Cronulla, in the South of Sydney, just a 5 minutes walk away from the beach. For me, my dreams came true! Yours can become true too. Believe in it, and it will happen if it is meant for you.

Welcome to my weekly law of attraction reading. I am using the deck from Esther and Jerry Hicks :

For the week of the 9 October 2017 I pulled the following card:

I am not in competition for Well-Being.

Competition can serve you if it stimulates your desire, but it can be a disadvantage if it hampers your belief in succeeding. In this unlimited universe, there is no need to compete for Well-Being, for your resources are unlimited. You may perceive a shortage, but it would be of your own making.

Inspirational quote of the week – follow your intuition

inspirational quote

Hello everybody. I hope you are having a wonderful week with lots of miracles.

This week’s quote is:

The small voice deep within is your best friend saying “Hey, it’s been a long time since we’ve talked.” – Ralph Smart

Are you listening to your inner voice and follow your intuition? Have you experienced situations before where you had a gut feeling but decided against it, to notice afterwards that you should have gone with your gut? Yes, I have done that too. Lessons learned. I now always tune into my gut and follow my intuition. If it feels right, I do it; if not, I don’t.

Sometimes people could tell me all reasons why I should do a particular thing, but hey, if I don’t feel it, my answer is NO.

Follow your intuition to achieve your goals and expect the unexpected.

Have a wonderful remaining week. Namaste.

Why are creative people prone to addictions and how to overcome them?

Artist

Hello everyone, Alex here. Today I would like to talk about why creative people are prone to addictions and how to overcome them.

Why are creative people prone to addictions?

Creativity and sensitivity go hand in hand. Sensitive people usually feel overwhelmed a lot and may feel lost about what to do with their emotions.

Sensitive, artistic people can be prone to addictions if they are not expressing their feelings through creativity. Addictive substances and behaviours temporarily numb our emotional pain. We do it even though we know that the pain returns after the numbing effect wear off.

What are the most common type of addictions for creatives?

What kind of dependencies am I talking about? These can be any kind of substance abuse or behaviours, such as drug, alcohol, fast food, sugar, emotional eating disorders and the list goes on, even workaholism, binge-watching TV or social media.

We numb ourselves out to forget what we really want to express. We distract ourselves with nonsense and keep us busy with things which don’t matter, so we don’t need to deal with our emotions. However, the emotions are still there. If we don’t release it, it will make it really painful for us.

How do you overcome your addictions?

If you think about it, when you let your creativity out and express what wants to be released, you naturally heal your emotions and create a lasting outlet for understanding. At the same time, you help to heal others with your art facing similar feelings.

Doesn’t this sound like a better alternative to replace an addiction with being creative?

Ask yourself: What type of addiction do you have? How much time do you spend on facebook or other social media or watch TV shows you don’t even like? Are you addicted to sugar and can’t stop eating desserts, chocolate bars and cookies or are you addicted to alcohol, drugs or smoking?

Notice, what it is for you and ask yourself: What is the positive intention behind doing this? What are you escaping from?

Now, what action can you take, to slowly stop your addictive behaviour? Can you replace, e.g. a glass of wine or beer with some creative work? Give it a go and see how it feels. Once we are in our creative zone, you will realise that you don’t need all these addictive things.

How do creative people deal with manic depression and bipolar?

Did you know that highly creative people can be emotionally unstable? Most of the prominent are that the classic artists, composers, and writers were manic-depressive or bipolar? Bipolar has significant mood swings. Creativity involves going into the depths of despair and afterwards having high energy to express the despair artistically. That means, creative people, get their inspiration from their depression and then when their mood swings to high energy, they have the motivation to be creative and paint, sing or otherwise express their feelings. There is a lot of evidence that creative people go through emotional highs and lows. Studies are showing that creative people are more apt to be bipolar than the general population.

However, you don’t need to be bipolar to be creative. Most of us have a less extent of roller – coaster emotions and are able to function normally when they’re sad or excited.

Observe your negative feelings through a lens of a researcher and study your genuine feelings without being pulled down by them.

Law of attraction card reading for the week of 2 October 2017

Welcome to my weekly law of attraction reading. I am using the deck from Esther and Jerry Hicks :

For the week of the 2 October 2017 I pulled the following card:

My Life is unlimited in every respect.

I recognise that I am unlimited in all facets of my life. I see my financial balance as unlimited, so nothing I am choosing is limited by money. For I know I am a magnet; and I attract whatever level of prosperity, health, and relationships I choose.

Inspirational quote for the week

inspiration

Hello everyone, today’s inspirational quote is:

Whenever you think of someone undesirable, you give them power. Whomever you think of you breathe life into.

This is a great reminder to watch our thoughts. When you are upset about someone, try to sit back, breathe slowly in and out and think of something this person taught you. Maybe it was to stand up for yourself, to believe in yourself or to respect yourself? Whatever it is, write it down, say thank you and forgive that person in your mind. Now, let it go. Stop thinking about it any longer.

You choose who you want to interact with in life. I understand that we are sometimes in a situation where we cannot change anything yet. If that’s the case, remember that you still have a choice. Could you change your reaction to that person or situation?

I leave you with that. Please comment below what helps you when dealing with someone you dislike.

What are some common blocks for creatives and how to overcome them

creativity

Most creative people and artists have some common blocks but why am I talking about this and what are the blocks in particular?

What are the typical blocks for creative people

Creativity always begins with our feelings. A creative person wants to express these feelings using art as an outlet. However, expressing our deepest feelings in public means, we are vulnerable. There is a fear of being criticised for it, which is a problem for a creative person and could be a huge block to pursue their creative passion because of the worry what other people think of them. Each form of art is your own unique expression of yourself. It is simply not possible to create, write a book or song and not be talking about your own experience because we view the world through the lens of our feelings and the past. Your feelings are your muse for your projects.

Another typical block for creative people arises from being too much in your head and trying to think carefully about what to create, instead of trusting the flow and letting the idea come to you. Don’t think, just feel. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It is self-conscious and lousy.

Artistic blocks also occur when we are searching outside ourselves for inspiration if we try to force a successful creative project to appear. These blocks stem from discounting our own beautiful and inspirational natural and normal feelings and experiences.

Others may try to figure out what will succeed in the marketplace. But hey, this is not your authentic self. This comes from a place of lower energy vibration, from a sense of neediness. The question we ask is: “What can I get out of my customers?” The product you create carries lower energy vibration, and it does not come from your heart. That is a taking energy and keeps you away from success and fulfilment. But isn’t that what we are looking for? Fulfillment? Doing what we love doing and getting rewarded for it?

How to overcome these creative blocks

Great question. Instead of trying hard to think and search for ideas outside; search within yourself. Start with your current feelings. How do you feel right now? Are you feeling sad, happy, content or peaceful, melancholic or untangled? Notice your feelings and face them, you then receive inspired ideas to creatively express your feelings in a way that will not just help you but also others who feel the same way.

When creating your art, come from your heart. Ask yourself: “What can I give to my customers?” Giving energy is high vibrational and guarantees you success in the marketplace. There is an old saying about writers: “God gives writers (and other creatives) talent, but if we misuse this talent, it goes away.” This means if you create without inspiration and only for the money, god will take away your talent. This statement is helping us to stay focused on creating art from our heart and a giving place. Of course, you need an income to pay your bills. Unless you are independently wealthy, you will need a job. I will talk about more about how to make money from your art at another time.

This post is not about the “starving artist”, this is just another typical blocks artists have. We all want our creative projects to succeed because the more people purchase your art, the more people receive your healing intention.

I encourage you to fully notice and express your feelings, the higher the vibration of your art will be. Any attempt to hide your feelings will lower the energy vibration.

There are so many more disempowering beliefs blocking creative people from moving forward in what they love doing. I am going to talk about the common theme of addictions for creatives and how you can overcome it next week.

Please comment below, if that resonates with you and what your blockages are. Feel free to ask any questions.

Do you want to discover what your own blockages are and learn how to overcome these, so you can transform your life? Then please book a complimentary Breakthrough session with me here.

Law of attraction card reading for the week of 25 September 2017

law of attraction

Welcome to my weekly law of attraction reading. I am using the deck from Esther and Jerry Hicks :

For the week of the 25 September 2017 I pulled the following card:

“I am selfish enough to want to feel good.”

You cannot perceive life from any perspective other than from that of yourself….Selfishness is the sense of self. Unless you are selfish enough to care about how you feel – and therefore direct your thoughts in such a way that you are allowing a true connection to your INNER BEING – you have nothing to give another anyway. Everyone is selfish. It is not possible to be otherwise.

How to change your perception and create the life you want

inspirational quote

Hi, Alex here, to help you change your perception, to see the order in the chaos and to create the life you want.

But first, why am I talking about changing your perception in the first place?

Good question!

Changing your perception is the secret to creating your own reality. It is not so much about what happens to you but how you perceive it.

So, what is changing your perception?

Almost all of us have gone through some either loss, betrayal, heartbreak, grief, illness, financial distress or any other hardships.

We have two options:

  • One option is to be and stay as a victim; then nothing in your life will change.
  • A second option is to find the order in the chaos and to ask ourselves, what were the lessons we had to learn, act on it and let the past go once and for all.

It is up to you, which way you want to go.

Now, you might ask, well, ok I decided for option 2 but how do I change my perception?

I am not saying it is a lovely task to do, but it will definitely help you to release the past once and for all. There is always something positive in a negative situation.

But how do you deal and release the past without dwelling on it?
a) Make a list of past hurts

What helped me to finally release the past, was to write down everything that bothered me, made me angry, frustrated or even sad. Every single hurt in my past was on the list including the lack of money, love or success. Whatever comes up for you, write it all down. The point is not to roll around in pain again, it just to notice. I know it does not feel nice to capture all the crap from our past. Stay with me, in a few minutes you will feel much better.

b) What are the lessons you learned?

Once you are done, sit back quietly, meditate on it if you like to and ask yourself, what is it I had to learn from all that. Maybe you actually turned your learnings already into actions, but you never noticed it or acknowledged it as such. There is always something you take away for your personal growth. Use a different piece of paper and write down everything that comes to your mind of what you have learned.

I give you a few examples of lessons learnt which might be relevant for you too:

Love yourself
Set your boundaries and
Value yourself.
These were a big one for me. I never valued myself and was giving services away for free. This is giving but not receiving. Energy cannot flow this way, this is not good for the person who gives but also not any good for the individual who received the free service. Setting boundaries was another huge learning for me. I learned to say yes to myself and stop pleasing others.

A lack of money goes back to the same thing; if we don’t value ourselves, we keep spending money on things we don’t need or keep saying yes to underpaid jobs and never ask for a pay rise.

Maybe you will also realise that you had to go through all of the things to find out what your purpose in life is. You might find yourself helping and inspire other people who experience the same thing and need someone like you. There is always a gift presented in the tough things in life if we allow ourselves to see it.

c) Write a thank you letter

Once you have written down a list of the things you learned, write a thank you letter. You might want to do it like this:

Thanks ___________ for letting me experience  ____________. You showed me that I have to _________ (e.g. set my boundaries/ value myself, love myself….) I started to  __________ (e.g. if ‘set my boundaries’ was the learning: to say yes to myself and no to things and people in my life who drain my energy…use examples; if you have not done so, write down the intention to do so. Be specific.)

d) Eliminate the negative list and read out loud your thank you letter

Now you can burn or shredder the negative things you experienced. Make a ritual out of it if you like. Say out loud, that this past situation can now go and leave your energy field.

Now, before you go to bed, breathe in and out slowly, then read out loud the thank you letter. Notice how you feel after this and especially after this night’s sleep. You might have a dream which processes the remaining bits and pieces to be released. Don’t worry about this. This is part of the healing process.

You will feel much lighter after this exercise, you will feel like a huge weight was taken off you.

Changing the perspective and being grateful for the lessons we learned is transforming our lives. We are now open to receive positive high vibrational energy into your field. You will see how things are going to shift. You will be more open to new opportunities.

Remember, some hurt can sit very deep and you might want to read out this thank you letter several times before you can fully see the results in your life.

There is never a loss but a transformation.

What do you do now?

Do you still feel overwhelmed with all this? I can imagine, I have been through this myself, and I wished I had someone who helped me when I needed it. I hear you.

In my health and life coaching practice, I help people like you to transform their lives. If that resonates with you and you would like to have some support to guide you through the process, click here to book a complimentary breakthrough session with me. You will discover what it is stopping you from living the life you want and what to do about it step by step.

Say yes to yourself; each and every one of you deserves the best life on earth.

Comment below if that helped you and what came up for you. How did you feel after doing this exercise?
