Now, you all know the saying"what you focus on grows" or "you get more of what you focus on" so why oh why are some people focusing on fear and negativity. I'm not one for putting my head in the sand though I have unfollowed those who are living in fear to protect myself from their negative behaviour. Now, we also know there is talk about coming out of lockdown, which is a good thing on one level...what may not be a good thing is how we come out of lockdown will be approached. Will we approach it in a measured way or go for it like a mad person and consume everything in our path. I know I'm not the only person to be enjoying the cleaner air, the birdsong, the peace and quiet of the roads and the connections. I hear voices that were rushed and stressed with all they had to do are now relaxed, warm and loving in a way they had not been before. So we'll have choices to make, do we go back to the life we had or will we look to change what is no longer necessary in our lives. I know which choice I'm going to make and that's one for the good of all.
Because it was raining yesterday I drove my son to the supermarket or should I say chauffeured him there while he sat in the back, social distancing even in the car. While I waited for him to finish our shopping I people watched and what I noticed was the glum faces of the people who were out shopping, the single focus to get to where they were going with not even a brief glance to another person. A smile never killed anyone though it can be more infectious than the COVID-19 virus. There's no doubt this is a scary time and for my son and me we've have had our moment of anxiety until we decided fear was stealing our happiness and with that thought, we changed the way we felt about this virus and we've had so much fun together. Neither of us can imagine what it must be life for anyone who is on their own or living in a property with no outside area to sit in. We send our love and blessings to you for a speedy resolution to this virus.
So how about when you are out o share a smile or two, you never know the more of us infecting people with our smiles could give the planet a chance to heal.
Sending love and blessings for your continued good health. Lyn xxx
Taking time out to reflect is so essential to our health and happiness.
When we stay in the drama for longer than is healthy, the damage we do to our bodies and mind will take a longer for us to recover from. On a personal level, I stayed too long in an abusive relationship because of my kind nature not to be weak, when in fact the weakness was that I didn't get rid as soon as the abuse started. My life now is full of love, excitement, new and positive beginnings where I am answerable only to myself. So say YES to this and take a moment to reflect on where you have been and where you are today, what needs to change, how can you make those changes with the highest benefit to all involved?
Let's make 2020 a new beginning on many levels, and if you don't think you can make those changes on your own, ask for help, many good souls are willing to give a helping hand.
Daily meditation is a good starting point and if that's not for you take a few minutes to just sit with no distractions, wait, see what comes up for you, reflect on it, move on and make those changes needed now.
Love, hugs and best wishes from me to you xxx
Are you sitting comfortably in a quiet location where you'll not be disturbed?
Close your eyes and settle with a few breaths focusing on your heart centre. Relax, let your shoulders drop. Enjoy the rhythm of your breath for a moment or two.
Take your focus to your toes. How do they feel? Don't interact with anything you sense, feel or see in your mind's eye, just be aware of anything that comes up for you. Move up to your feet and again just be aware of any sensations that come to you before moving on to your ankles, can you feel any shackles here keeping you stuck? Move on to your lower legs, wait a moment to give your body a chance to talk to you. Move up to your knee's, are they painful, if so where is it you're not supporting yourself, give yourself a moment or two to listen to your body. Move on to your thighs, then your buttocks, can you feel the weight of you sitting on your seat. Moving up to your pelvis is their discomfort here, why are you stopping yourself from moving forward in your life. Move up to your stomach and lower back and pause, now move onto your chest and middle back. Moving on to your shoulders, is there a heaviness here, are you carrying the weight of something on them. Moving down to your upper arms, elbows, forearms, wrists, hands to the tips of your fingertips, pausing at each step to allow your body to speak to you. Then moving up to your throat, how does it feel here, is there a lump in your throat, a blockage, a thickening feeling from unspoken words. Then moving up to your head, listen, is there something here for you to learn. All the time giving thanks to your amazing body for all the support it has offered you throughout your years walking, skipping, running, laughing, feeling joyous and helping you through the many traumas, illnesses and heartaches you have endured as well as the good and great times since your birth. Thank you, thank you, thankyou!
Just for today give yourself 5 minutes of silence. Let everything about you drop away, your past, your future, your problems, your hopes and desires, your expectations, your shoulds. By spending this time in silence, you will reset if only for those 5 minutes your default button back to when you were an innocent child when you didn't have a care in the world. Bliss. Just for 5 minutes, you will be able to turn back your emotional clock. Of course, you can repeat these 5 minutes of silence as often as you wish to gain a better understanding of who you are. Try it. You may be pleasantly surprised at how these 5 minutes of silence help improve your future. With love, Lyn x
There is no such thing as the right or wrong time. When you are ready life will present the right people, doors that were closed to you will open. Your creative mind will jump into action so your inspired thoughts can become your reality. When life needs to be pushed the energy around you will be heavy or sticky, when life is a trial there's something that needs to change so your energy can be free once more, maybe it's to let go of something/someone from your past, could you be holding onto a wrong you felt as a child that is keeping you stuck in past negative energy? Do you have regrets? Remember there is no need to regret anything, the information you had at that time is where you were coming from when you did or said what you did, time and wisdom are here now to help your future you, and without your past, you wouldn't be who you are today.
So let's take a moment to breathe deeply and at the same time give thanks to all past and future events an people who have and will help and support you on your journey into your future.
RECEPTIVITY - This is such an important lesson that I teach it as often as I can. To truly listen to someone is the best gift you can give them. When we listen while formulating a response, we are not actually listening to what is being said. When we listen with all of our being we come from a place of compassion and empathy. When we keep our head busy creating our response while the other person is still talking we miss so much of what is being said, it's the same as writing while listening, the two don't go together, we miss key words, inflexions. Of course, we can listen and write at the same time, we do this all the time, but, do you notice a difference when you don't, when you give 100% of your attention to someone is there a different connection between the two of you, do you "get it" more. Try for today to simply listen to those who talk to you. By remaining in the moment see if you feel any difference at the end of the day. I bet you 'get it' before bed tonight...

THE FOOL ... when people take advantage of you, and you still continue to trust and trust again you are not the fool, you are a pure conscious being who will not be sullied by other peoples dishonest behaviour. Let them be the fool in thinking their behaviour is not being noticed, even if you don't see what they are doing immediately other people will see who they really are before you. Nothing we do goes unnoticed by everyone and certainly not by the universe. A cheap gain only brings a moments pleasure whereas when we work from our heart for everyone's benefit, that moment lives a lifetime. We all have choices, and I know which one I will choose again and again... With love & Blessings, Lyn x
SILENCE ...when we allow our minds to become silent we give our body the space to breathe, our minds to clear and our hearts to open. When we allow our mind to clear we are given an opportunity to connect with our higher selves. When we make a connection to our chosen god we open ourselves up to everything there is the world has to offer. Every vibration from the energies around us are whispering to us, bringing with them every answer to every question, we just have to listen to hear what the vibrations have to say. Are you prepared to listen or are you rushing to the next moment you don't have time to spare for yourself? Step back, switch off, tune in, be at one with the world and yourself then watch for miracles to happen.
With love, Lyn x
Are you always exhausted from overthinking?
When we live in our heads where we constantly think about what is our next task, where do I need to go next, oh, and I still need to pick up the cat food, okay, I'll go pick it up when I go over that way to do some food shopping then I can get back and continue with tonights dinner oh and not to forget all the relationship stuff clogging up our minds day and night, will she/he be the person I expect them to be, will they receive the message I've sent them in the form I wrote it in. Remember they will only receive the message in the way you wrote it if that's how they want to receive it, anything else is an excuse, unless, they ask you to explain in a gentle and kindly way. Love and relationship should always be kindness from the core. What's that saying "If you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all" Hell, over these past few years there's plenty I could have said, time, money, energy all wasted for the benefit of others. I've chosen to keep quiet, so I don't continue to hurt myself, they will know what they have done so what would I gain from lambasting anyone, they would defend themselves with their version and I would continue any hurt I was feeling which could be passed on to innocent friends and family while my mood was affected by the pain I was feeling. So what do we do? We send love by the bucketful to whoever we feel wronged by, we try and see the situation from their point of view, we remain in our core letting our presence be felt throughout our bodies. And when the pain rises we acknowledge it and the lesson it's come to teach us, we don't swallow it and just get on, that's when we block ourselves from moving on with our lives, yes, we welcome the pain and send it thanks so we have a chance to release any blockages we may have created from the situation. So now the question is how do we stop all this from happening in the first place? And the answer is to be in the NOW, centre yourself everyday, even if it's just for a couple of minutes it will help and over time you will notice how much you have changed and when you change those around you will feel your vibration shift and so will they (if they need to improve their vibration to match yours) and if no then they are here to stay.
Live in the NOW sweethearts, it really is the only way.
With love & blessings, Lyn
