Mindset

Mindset is everything and the one thing we do have control over. We may be knocked down and have temporary setbacks but we can always choose how to face it and to get back up.

Life can be unfair, yet we decide what to do with what we’re given and where to take it from there.

If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.

Choose to be the hero in the story not the victim.

Whatever life has dealt you, you get to choose how you deal with it.

“If life wants to play, then decide to play it your way. Make it what you can and be the greatest hero in your story. Be the scriptwriter of your life.”

Being Empowered

At certain times in life we can reach a point where we feel powerless; powerless to that which is happening either directly to us or around us.
At these times however real it may feel, this feeling of powerlessness is an illusion.

We always have power

Why?

Because we always have choice – no matter what the situation or circumstance,
We have the most important choice

That of how we show up.

So how can we go from feeing powerless to being empowered

1.) In how we choose to be
2.) In how we choose to focus
3.) In what we choose to do

Ultimately it is the energy we choose to bring to any situation.

And this energy is the most powerful thing that we have – we choose what we bring to any circumstance and through doing so we create a ripple effect. We can choose the effect we wish to create and from here help those around us too.

With us all being energy, we are never powerless, we are creative beings, giving power to that which we choose through our own awareness. We all can make and create a difference within this world, starting with ourselves. We get to choose how, and in doing this we will influence others too.

Whether winter or summer
You still have a choice
Even though it may not feel that way,
You always have power
You always have a voice 💗

The most important thing to realise is our power lies within us, not outside of us. So if ever your feeling powerless, come back to this truth, it’s from here we create change in our lives to begin with. Know that it is always you who decides how you show up today, on what you choose to focus on and on the energy you wish to create for your life and those around you.

As Gandhi so famously stated;

“Be the change you wish to see in the world”

It starts with us. Create from within and stay in charge. 💗

Higher realms

There is no control
only acceptance
Where the deeper self,
The higher self
Chooses focus
And chooses well
On all that serves,
All that is positive
Towards ones growth
In the higher realms 🙏

Warrior strength

IMG_9774-0.JPG

To love and step up
Even when you’ve been hurt
To be more and overcome
When you think you’ve had enough

To be here
To be the strong
Even when you’ve been wronged
This is the way a warrior always fights on

To be stronger
To grow stronger
To love ever more
No matter what may asail you
You always have more

This is how you grow,
This is how you become,
So step up,
With every second; become so much more ❤
~ M. L Adams

All you have learnt

In all, it’s about what have you learnt;
What is it that you hold in your heart,
Do you see in others what they see in you,
Do you see the truth no matter what others do,

Continue to learn, grow and develop;
Holding the gratitude you know is true
Then the love in your heart;
The truth that you see,
In all that you ever have; That is all you will ever need ❤

New Year Possibilities and Beginnings

beginning

Today has been an amazing new years day, looking forward to new goals and beginnings whilst continuing on projects over from last year too. I always love new year because of the energy everyone has with the potential of what we can be and become.

It brings alive the field of possibility in knowing that we can change habits we no longer need and become all we want to be, it’s often just maintaining this energy that can be the challenge.

That’s why I believe its so important to have this focus of what is possible consistently, to always be searching for new ideas and opportunities. To treat every day as if it is a new beginning just as we do at this time,  because really it is. Everyday and every moment is a new beginning and anything is possible when our view expands enough to see all that is available to us.

The only thing that ever limits us is ourselves and our view of what is possible for us to do and when we focus daily on something that we may not have perceived possible, who knows what opportunities will come our way. I was a little disappointed at the end of 2014 that I had not achieved all I would like to have done but at the same time I know I have learnt so much. For all that is important as part of my journey and I achieved and experienced things that I never could have planned.

Most importantly from 2014 I learnt;

  • To always, always trust my intuition
  • The value of true friendship
  • The art of allowing
  • The beauty of acceptance
  • New fields of possibility I never knew
  • That any perceived obstacle can always be transformed in to an opportunity
  • The importance of expressing my truth and passion even more

New learning as well as achievements are all part of our journey of growth and the beauty in life, we never can fully plan everything. We can however be sure that when we go with the flow towards our goals we will be heading in the right direction.

‘The Alchemist’ by Paulo Coelho is a perfect example of this, and in the end it is always about realising our potential and surprising ourselves with possibilities we never knew we could find.

I’m determined even more this year to be open to all new possibilities and opportunities whilst on the journey to achieving my goals which is why this year pubic speaking and any opportunities in this area will be a big part of my goal. Please watch this space for video uploads 🙂   I wish you all the best success and lots of wonderful opportunities on your journey this year too. Happy New Year to you 🙂 Lets make this year amazing.

There is no end, only beginnings,

Every moment, is a new beginning

Letting go of expectations

IMG_8959.JPG

Personal growth and transformation have to be one of the most rewarding parts of our life journey. However one paradox in this is that although goals are important they can sometimes get in the way of our connection with the present moment when we are too focused on an end result. It’s a fine line to cut between not having goals and living in the moment and having goals but still being present.

The difficulty with having no goals at all  is that we can potentially drift unfocused in to things that are of no good or use, such as negative thinking or watching T.V to pass time. However having goals can equally pull us out of the moment when we become too focused on the end or on the expectations that we may have for the goal, or when we expect them to happen.

Goals are great to drive us towards a greater cause and towards growth and continual improvement, but their function, I believe should not be to add so much pressure that it pulls out of now and out of the beauty of being and giving from where we are. When this begins to happen it is the point where we can re-evaluate our goals and whether there intention is working well in our lives or discovering from there what we can do differently.

Ultimately being here and now and giving from this space has to be the most important thing. Any future expectation is irrelevant and unimportant compared to happiness in the now that comes from a place of being and living in flow. This I believe serves ourselves and others more than anything.

With our goals in mind whilst allowing ourselves to be here and now, we will always reach them when the time is right. It is always about the journey, by focusing too much on the destination we miss out on all the beauty on the way. To strive with a goal in mind and to always be enjoying the journey by letting go of expectations then becomes far more loving and fun. ❤

Every journey has value, gifts and lessons,

Lifes for living, live for the journey.

Living at the Cause

357

I’m re- posting this as it was around this time last year and it serves as powerful a reminder right now of the importance of personal power, one of intentionally creating in each moment, every single day.

We all have far more power over our lives than we sometimes realise, it’s just a matter of choosing where our focus goes. A daily practice however always.

Much Love,

Miranda

Living at the Cause.
