The other day I was feeling a little off focus, disconnected and I knew I needed to charge my spiritual battery.
With this acknowledgement where do I go? What do I do?
One of the quickest, easiest ways I have found just to start making myself feel better is Pam Grout’s blog. Easily and effortlessly Pam has the ability to remind me how great this Universe is but on this day with at least 3 posts to catch up on, it felt like Pam was posting just for me. These posts were more profound than a quick shot of happy adrenalin.
Sometimes Pam posts examples of the emails she receives from people thanking her and telling her of the amazing things that have happened to them following reading Pam’s books and acting on the advise and one of them made me think that’s the next step to charge this my physical battery …. get some shape action or in other words reread Pam’s books.
In amongst the blogs and what I reread within a few hours I was reminded by Pam that in our human physicality we ALL, regardless of how phenomenal we think someone is who seems to have it all going on get wrapped up in our 5 senses and let doubt, worry and fear grab us by the delicate areas and shake us around.
This is what led me to the place of realising I needing to take things to a higher level. Something happened to me and I let myself become completely overwhelmed by fear.
What I also realised whilst reading Pam was all the magnificent information that I had highlighted and then completely forgot about. Pam said it herself that even she goes all 5 senses now and again and has to keep working daily to put herself first and remind herself of the power we have at our disposal 24/7. She described it like training a puppy not to pee on your slippers. You have to take it outside and show it all the incredible unlimited magnificence of the Universe it has at it’s disposal.
That’s when it struck me. I need daily reminders to go beyond the 5. It’s not a one time underline and forget situation. If I really want to rock my physical world with joy, happiness and abundance and remember the non-physical assistance I (WE ALL) have at our disposal literally every second of our waking and non-waking time space continuum I need to puppy (toilet) train my brain.
I have a digital journal running on an app I use called Evernote that I can access on any device and syncs to all my other devices so at the start of each day I have made a tick list of things I aim to do that day. I know I can be a little control freak on myself and then probably give myself a mental kicking if I feel I have failed to achieve something so I have created a balance for myself buy accepting that I am not going to tick all the boxes in one day so what doesn’t get ticked gets deleted for that day but I still have a track record of what I have achieved that put me and my personal happiness at the top of the tree.
The ticks are things like read something inspirational for at least 30 minutes, listen to a pod cast, meditate, read my goal cards, yoga, write things I am grateful for.
The list is evolving all the time because if I think of something that maybe beneficial but acknowledge I will probably forget to do it I add it to the list. The other evening I watched a Facebook Live with Anita Moorjani and Anita reminded us that the most important purpose in our lives is to love ourselves and when we think of an opportunity we didn’t take etc we probably berate ourselves but we should love ourselves. I had been thinking a lot what if’s recently but because of Anita’s words I have been loving myself. Not a habit I wanted to get out of so on the list it went.
I was listening to a YouTube video the other day with Bob Proctor ‘You Were Born Rich’ number 4 (amazing) where he discussed writing down what you really want and meditating on it and reading it everyday. I am guilty of doing that ages ago and now forgetting where I wrote it so I wrote a new expanded version and placed it at the top of my daily electronic journal and copied and pasted it in to all the other subsequent days for the months and will transfer it when I get to January 2017 which is already made up as it was one of my tasks to do the other day.
If I have something bespoke to do that day that isn’t on the generic tick list I place it under the heading Actions and these actions are in red. When I have achieved the action I change it to black and at the end of the day for what ever reason I couldn’t get it done and it was still red I just cut and paste it for the next day as a reminder.
I may listen to an interesting Podcast hands free whilst driving but not the next day so delete podcast but I may listen to Bob Proctor whilst shaving my legs and getting dressed instead. I most definitely read something inspirational for at least 30 minutes most days and everything seems to have some beneficial takeaway and I have become far more productive and happier and less fearful from my brain Training. I even wrote 2 chapters in a book I have been writing for a while that hasn’t happened in months so I was buzzing.
I could go on forever with all the other things I feel I have learnt or achieved since creating my list but I’m going now to tick ‘Blog Post’ something else I haven’t done in ages until I put it on the list 🙂
