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.

Law of attraction card reading for the week of 9 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 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.

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.

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?

Being your creative self – part 2

Following from last week’s post, being your creative self means to show your originality. It also is a way to look within and to bring your shadows into the light.

Have the courage to look within

The chances are that you are also highly emotional as a highly creative individual. A study of 27 art collectors found that they were almost three times more intuitive and emotionally based, compared to the general population.

Most of us may think we are weird to be around and expect social rejection and push people away due to insecurities and sabotage opportunities. We say to ourselves, better not to try, rather than suffer from disappointment.

Now, I have some exciting news for you: if you feel that way, this is a perfect first step to being creative. Have the courage to use your inner life as a canvas for your creations and use your feelings when creating. Even if the feelings might be painful, sit with them compassionately. There is a huge likelihood that there are other people out there who feel exactly the same way and love to see your work. You heal others who feel the way you do.

Art is helping us to look at our shadows so they can be understood and healed. Make your art authentically real and coming from your heart and soul.

Unfortunately, our ego does not want us to face our fearful part of our minds, our shadow side. However, once we are consciously aware of the fears, the ego loses its ability to control us. The ego tries to convince us that it is dangerous to look within and take an honest inventory of our feelings. Our ego tries to tell us that if we think we are a bad person, we are the bad person. In spiritual truth, we are as great as our creator because we are made in the image and likeness of our creator.

It is not easy to look within because there is this deep-seated fear that we don’t like what we may find. There is maybe a fear of finding nothing. This is especially the case if you had to adapt to your life because of an abusive upbringing, which means that you learned to conform, cope and get along. That also means that you forget who you really are and you lose touch with your true self and honest opinions.

However,  once you shine the light within yourself, you find there’s a light shining back at you. You will realise how far you have come and that you learned great lessons and stayed strong through painful experiences and hardships.

creative, creativity, shine in the light, bring out your shadows
Once you shine the light wihin yourself, you find there is a light within shining back at you.

Looking within means that you do whatever it takes for your inspiration. Let your true self and emotions shine through your art. See the divine spark of light in you. Everyone has this light, you just need to be willing to look within to find it. Have compassion for yourself and express this with your creativity.

Don’t cover up dark, painful feelings. The best way to deal with it is to face it and say to it: “Look, you don’t scare me any longer. In fact, you are not even real. You are just a dark cloud trying to cast a shadow over my bright inner light.”

Art connects who you are on the inside to who others are on the inside. Remember what you have felt then, many other people have felt, and what you feel now, many other people feel. When you speak the truth about your feelings through your creations, others recognise this truth within their own selves. It speaks directly to their hearts. Your creativity creates a heart to heart connection with truth and authenticity.

Have the courage to bring your shadows into the light

Facing your feelings even though we are not always proud of them, means to have courage. Everyone has an ego which is competitive and insecure. It’s not whether we go into your egotistical inner child that matters; it’s what we do with it. Use your ego based energy in your creative projects, which helps others to recognise themselves and receive healing through your art.

Studies show that when we reveal our human flaws, other people perceive us as more likeable. It is about getting to know yourself at the deepest level and being vulnerable. This is how you form a loving, trusting bond with yourself. Trust and have confidence in yourself. Have the courage to be yourself.

Law of attraction card reading for the week of 18 September 2017

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

For the week of the 18 September 2017 I pulled the following card:

I cannot create in the experience of another

You cannot create in the experience of another because you cannot think their thoughts…What you can do for them is set the example of joy. Become a Being who thinks only of that which you are wanting, who speaks only of that which you are wanting, and who does only that which you are wanting – and therefore brings forth only joyful emotion.

What a great reminder to only listen to your own intuition, to your own soul. You have inner wisdom. Others have different values and wishes so they won’t be able to answer your question. Trust yourself. You have everything you need inside you.

Have a wonderful week ahead.

Inspirational quote of the week

law of attractoin

Welcome to an inspirational quote of the week:

Half of our lives we spend dreaming about what we want to achieve, the other half we spend worrying if we will ever get there, I live like I already have it.

What a great reminder to stop worrying and to trust the universe. Don’t just dream about your goals but start to action on it. Live your life like you already have achieved your goals. You will see how opportunities will come in, if this is the right path for you. Trust the flow and embrace the journey. Namaste.
