Be Inspired by Camille Lucy 7 Ways to Slow Down and Live Full Today

PMA Added…

Begin your day by feeling grateful. Be grateful for the bed you just slept in, the roof over your head, the carpet or floor under your feet, the running water, the soap, your shower, your toothbrush, your clothes, your shoes, the refrigerator that keeps your food cold, the car that you drive, your job, your friends. Be grateful for the stores that make it so easy to buy the things you need, the restaurants, the utilities, services, and electrical appliances that make your life effortless. Be grateful for the magazines and the books that you read. Be grateful for the chair that you sit on, and the pavement that you walk on. Be grateful for the weather, the sun, the sky, the birds, the trees, the grass, the rain, and the flowers.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! May the joy be with you, Rhonda Byrne The Secret & The Power

Topics: Gratitude, Intention, Kindness, Nature, Practical Exercises

Camille LucyOften times, our days get ahead of us and by the time night falls, we cannot even remember what we did or how the hours passed by so quickly. Here are some ways you can catch yourself from running blindly through your day like a tornado, missing everything, so that you can live fully and with intention.

  1. Set intentions. This may sound silly, but the way in which you wake will determine much of your day. When you open your eyes (before anyone – human or companion animal – notices you are awake), take a few moments to pay attention to your breath. Slow your mind, do not let it race off thinking about your stressors. Set an intention for the day. What do you want to accomplish and how do you want to feel today?
  2. Be grateful. As you are setting your intention, spend an extra moment thinking about all that you are grateful for. Perhaps you may want to jot this down in a “gratitude journal.” According to the Harvard Health Publications, “In positive psychology research, gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness.” Focusing on what is good in your life will sprinkle your day with more happiness!
  3. Get moving. Spend another moment stretching and moving your body. Connect with how you feel, physically and emotionally. Take inventory of your thoughts, and of the signals your body is sending you.
  4. Step outside. According to Marilyn Price-Mitchell, Ph.D. in The Moment of Youth, research suggests that “’nature relatedness has a distinct happiness benefit’ beyond the more generalized benefit of feeling connected to family, friends, and home. Our connection to nature also correlated with most measures of human well-being, indicating it may play an extremely important role in maintaining positive mental health.” Spending some time outdoors before you begin your day will help ground you and improve your overall well-being.
  5. Be mindful. Sure enough, at some point during the day you will be racing around, again. Try to remember to slow down while doing everyday tasks such as walking the dog or washing your hands. The MindfulMinute.org suggests, “The next time you wash your hands, slow down the process by paying attention to the feel of your hands as you turn on and off the faucet. Listen to the sounds of the water flowing through and from the pipes. Feel the soap as you apply it to your hands and smell its aroma. Bring awareness to the movement of your hands and fingers–to the feel of the water as it plays against your hands. To the temperature.” Exercises such as this one will aid you in becoming more present with your day.
  6. Be kind. Kindness is a universal language, and everyone benefits from it. Mark Twain said, “Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” Pay it forward, kindness is contagious and before you know it, one kind act has snowballed into dozens performed by others as a result.
  7. Check in with yourself. Lastly, it is important to check in with yourself to see how you are feeling throughout the day. Acknowledging and accepting your emotions and feelings, whether they be what you consider “good” or “bad” ones, can help you to release the junk that is holding you back and keeping you stuck. It allows you to let go and move forward rather than fester and spiral into a negative or anxious head space.

Peaceful Cup of TeaTry these seven tips out for a while and see how you feel. Implementation into your life – and routine – will help you to remain more present and therefore enjoy (and remember) your day more. As you get comfortable, feel free to improvise and add your own twist to the list! Find what resonates with you and makes you feel good. And do more of that!

7 Paths to the Life of Your Dreams

Sheri FinkIf I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I’d want to pass along to others…

Be your authentic self. Be true to yourself always. Don’t worry what other people will think. March to the beat of your own unique drum and do the things that make you happy. Magical things happen when you’re following your passions, the things that you really love in life.

Surround yourself with people who inspire you. Always seek to be around people who amplify your energy. After interacting with them, you’ll feel uplifted and excited about life. Look for this reaction when considering friends, coaches, business partners, mentors, clients, Mastermind Group members, etc.

Practice blissful thinking. Dream the biggest dream you can and then make it even bigger. Visualize the most amazing life you can imagine… then multiply it by 10! It should be so huge that it simultaneously scares and excites you, inspiring you to really go for it. Don’t play small in life, go for what you really want and deserve.

De-clutter your life. Let go of anyone, anything, any opportunity, event, activity, obligation, etc. that no longer serves you or fits into your vision for your ultimate life. Anything that drains your energy must go. Amazing things will come when you create the space for them in your home, your business, your schedule, and your life. When in doubt, throw it out.

"Figuring out what you want and what will help you become successful in your life is the first step in overcoming your fear of failure." Dr. Steve G. Jones

Trust your intuition/inner voice. We are all equipped with an inner guidance system. Practice getting in touch with your inner self and listen for the whispers of your soul. Sitting in silence and enjoying nature is a great way to deepen your connection with your inner voice. When you receive an intuitive nudge, take inspired action as soon as possible and watch the magic that unfolds before you.

Choose to amplify love, joy, and kindness in the world and trust that it will be reflected back to you. Sometimes it can feel like we’re bombarded by negativity. Break the chain and refuse to be a part of it. Discontinue blaming, complaining, gossiping, and rationalizing. It’s a waste of your energy. Associate with people, places, things, and events that make you feel good and fill you with hope and joy. Champion the people who are making a positive difference in the world. Amplifying the positive will enhance your life and the lives of everyone around you.

Acting from a place of Love is a choice we get to make each dayKeep taking action in the direction of your dreams. It’s normal to feel nervous or scared when trying something new. If you feel pulled to pursue something, honour that feeling and continue taking action toward your goal despite your fears and doubts. You’ll never know until you try.

When you commit to living the life of your dreams, you’ll feel good knowing that you’re working toward a challenge that’s worthy of your efforts. Above all, do what makes you happy and enjoy this exciting journey!

From Rhonda Byrne “The Secret”

How can you make a big dream come true?

You need to have one secret element, and when you have that secret element, nothing will get in your way. That element is an intense desire! You must desire something with all of your heart to manifest it. Often the difference between those who manifest something and those who do not, is the element of desire. When you have a burning desire for something you ignite a fire within you that attracts with an incredible force. The law of attraction is magnetically drawn to that intense fire element in you, and it responds by gathering all universal forces to make your dream come true.

Very often we ask for things because we think our life will be better with those things, but inside of us we do not have an immense desire for those things. When you don’t feel that immense desire within you, you are receiving guidance telling you that this is not something you really want. That is why it is so important to get clear on what it is that you really want with all of your heart, because what you really want with all of your heart is the very desire that you can manifest quickly.

When your heart is on fire with desire you will attract the right things to do, you will find visualizing so easy, and you will find it is effortless to think positive thoughts of your desire. You will attract all the qualities you need, such as strength, courage, belief, persistence, faith, and a powerful will. An intense desire lights up your being, producing a magnetic force that enables the law of attraction to cut through every physical obstacle for you and make your dream come true.

Go for your dreams! Don’t cheat yourself in your life with petty desires because you don’t think you can live your dream. THE DREAM inside you is the one thing that you have the greatest power to create, because you have an immense desire for it. Find the dream inside you – and make it come true!
