You’ve gotta love the Universe

I woke up from the depths of sleep this morning, feeling like the guy who plays Alex on Packed to the Rafters with a very stiff neck, at 7.30am! Unheard of for me to sleep that long can’t remember the last time and I only woke up once during the night at 3am ~ a good side effect of not drinking enough water yesterday.

I could feel the places that I exercised in hydrotherapy yesterday but once I got out of bed and got moving everything was manageable. The right index finger is still swollen and stiff but not quite as sore as it was. So a positive right there. I feel heaps better than this time last week. My new supplements arrived yesterday so today I can completely embrace the new eating regime and program.

Today is my youngest son’s birthday and when my children have birthdays I remember their births and what was happening for me at the time. This baby was conceived after I had my tubes cauterised and then was born 11 weeks premature. As I reflect on his birth I send healing to that young girl, who with 3 children at home had to deal with the very likely chance that this baby would not make it. But make it he did and now today he turns 33. He has two uni degrees, has travelled the world, runs marathons and just recently married his long time love. He did not let his start in life hamper him or hold him back nor define him. He has gone on to grab life with both hands and enjoy it. It was him who showed me that children really do pick their parents, he was determined that he was joining our family whether we wanted it or not! Happy Birthday Matt!!! Thank you for all you have brought to my life, I am so proud of the man you have become, love you to the moon and back.

While I was having breakfast I sorted through yesterday’s mail, when  I opened the newsletter from Australian Bush Flower Essences I laughed, there up the top was a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt, one of my favourite people to quote. “Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art”, there follows photos of 8 ‘wise’ people and a story about graceful ageing. Thank you so much Ian White, what perfect timing and a gentle reminder to make myself up some essences. I asked the Universe for role models and they just keep on appearing in all sorts of places. Such confirmation for me at the moment that what we focus on is what we get.

Behind my computer I have sayings and photos etc. that inspire me, and when I glance up they are absorbed into my subconscious, they are all positive and change regularly. My favourite is a photo of Tigger in a great pose with the saying ‘once in awhile someone amazing comes along, and here I am!’, makes me smile every time I look at it. I love it so much I have written the saying on the mirror in the clinic bathroom.

My daughter and her family are coming to stay for the weekend, the children bring a wonderful new energy to the house, and Rosie loves having them here. So I’m off to attend to a couple of things before they arrive. Have a great weekend ~ I certainly intend to!!

Our body is always talking to us?

Sadly, most of us don’t listen.   Or we only listen when we are brought to our knees.   I admit that even though I have known this for a long time and have been teaching it for the past twenty years I don’t always

Gratitude is an Attitude

A funny story from a long time ago …

When I first heard about gratitude, years and years ago, I thought

that if I was grateful for what I had in that moment that meant I would be stuck there and never have anything better!

And because that was my belief at the time I didn’t carry out the act of gratitude for many many years.

Definitely not a smart move

I was living in Sydney at the time and wanted desperately to move out of the rat race to somewhere quieter that would feed my soul.

Twenty years ago next month the dream I had held onto for so long came to fruition

and we moved to Kiama, the best decision we ever made!

Before that eventuated I had to sit in the situation I was in at the time and have gratitude for all that I had in my life then and there

I had let go of the belief I’d had such a tight grip on that to be grateful in the moment meant I would be stuck there

So not true!

In fact it was the reverse

Once you begin to have gratitude for what you have in your life then more things start to flow to you

The most important thing is to know what it is you wish to manifest in your life

Most people when asked what they want in their life come up blank

We all have a great long list of all the things we don’t want and nothing on the ‘do want’ list

So what happens is we are focused on the ‘don’t want’ and surprise, surprise that’s what keeps on showing up!!

The lesson here is to have gratitude for everything you have in your life now (just look around you) and focus on what you do want in your life.

Gratitude is a powerful manifestation tool.

TIP: if you have a list of what you don’t want it is easy to flip it to what you do want
