Focus

The power of focus is one of the greatest powers we have and when we are aware, it can be directed towards that what is greatest for us.

Our attention is always directed somewhere, however we either choose to direct it where we want to, or it is directed for us. Wherever our attention is directed it is far greater if this is as much a concious choice as possible.

There are many possibilities in life and many perceptions and once we are aware of the power of focus we can have it work for us rather than against us. As what we focus towards is what we will see and experience.

From experiencing the ups and downs of directed and misdirected focus I’ve put together 5 top tips in applying the power of focus in your life. I hope you find them helpful and allow it to work some magic for you.

  1. Focus on what you want – too often we can be led astray either by others, outside forces or our own undisciplined mind and begin to focus on things we do not want. Train your mind to focus on what you want and then you will experience more of this.
  2. Discipline – We have to train our minds to get them to work for us. We can do this through various ways such as  meditation, visualisation, affirmations and more. By doing this we are choosing to direct our mind rather than be easily influenced by outside forces.
  3. Feeling – Our feelings are a great indicator of our dominant focus points. Observe how you feel and redirect your mind where needed and necessary.
  4. Association – Those who we associate with have a powerful influence on our focus. Energy transfers, so choose your company wisely, be around those that you can be positively influenced by and where  you can also have a positive influence.
  5. Diet and exercise – what we put in to our bodies is as important as our minds. The exercise we do will also affect our focus as the body affects the mind and vice versa. Be mindful of both the food you take in and the exercise you do as this will either positively or negatively affect you, the states generated and subsequently the outcomes.

I hope you find the above tips useful especially as we are now approaching the end of lockdown and we can use this as a time to reset and refocus. Make sure it is you who is in charge of it 🙂

Focus on where you want to go

The way to freedom

How do we find true freedom?

This question is one that concerns me for all because it can often mean something different for everyone and then consciously or subconsciously that’s how we end up seeking it. The need or feeling to be free is like an innate drive within us, the great thing is however that it can be fulfilled far easier than we may realise.

So how?

Firstly it’s begins in our minds, this is where all freedom and focus starts, we can actually be in what may be perceived by others as a limiting situation and still feel very free.

So what is most important in our minds is how we are focusing and where it’s coming from;

For example- if our focus is coming from a past painful experience that we are wanting to move away from- this can actually limit us far more than free us. The reason being is that the very act of moving away from something already has a limit tied within it, because it’s linked to pain, although this can be a drive in some way, the fear and pain are still there.

Alternatively when moving towards freedom – you are driven by a cause and in addition having accepted or healed any pain left behind. So even though the pain may initially have drove you it is the cause that than enables you to seek and find the way to freedom both within and out.

Faith is also very important and is really a prerequisite to finding true inner freedom, for without it fear can still be the driver and therefore limiting the way forward.

If we look at some of the great examples, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and Daisaku Ikeda they have all been driven by a great cause, that allowed them to achieve great outcomes and freedom not only for themselves but for many along with them.

We too can follow in their footsteps and have this type of true freedom creating beautiful waves along with us, when we base our lives on such a cause. 🙏

One- mindedness

“Only one-mindedness is without confusion. A separated or divided mind must be confused, it is uncertain by definition. It has to be in conflict because it is out of accord with itself.” – ACIM

If everything is created
Then anything can be recreated,
And as so created,

It is then
That anything is possible,
As it is within, so it is without

Start with the truth,
Only in love
