Twisted Happy Song List – 20/02/2016

Bit of a twist on the Happy List today and instead of 3 Happy Songs today I am replacing them with three video’s that help me or make me feel happy and re-energized and get me back on track and reconnected to the Source.

No. 1 = Louise Hay – ‘I Can Do It – The Power of Affirmations’

I have listened to the video more than any other video on YouTube and the results after I have listened to it are incredible.

No. 2 = Wayne Dyer – The Shift

On the second on January 2015 I bought a ticket to see Wayne Dyer in London on October 1st. If you are a fan or aware of Wayne you will know that he passed away in August 2015. Just over a month before I was due to see him. I was in London when I saw the news and I was getting so excited about being in the same room as his energy I could not process what my eyes were showing me at first. Thankfully there was a Tribute to Wayne that I attended that was hosted by Anita Moorjani and Rob Holden and was a real gift. Talking of gifts. We were given free books that evening and I haven’t read a flesh and blood book since 2011 so I was given mine away as gifts however I hand three left and instinct said “It is time to give yourself a gift” and yesterday I started to read my physical version of “The Power of Intention” and I must say it feels quite nice to actually hold a book and a red pen to underline with rather than a tablet with finger poised to swipe.

If you haven’t watched this film, it is probably one of the best gifts you can ever give yourself.

No. 3 = Marie Forleo interview with Elizabeth Gilbert – How to Live a Creative Life

I had heard of the book and film ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ but I didn’t actually watch the film until after watching this interview but I am glad it worked out this way. When I watched this interview I was inspired to buy Big Magic instantly and write several blog posts as Elizabeth was like cream for my soul.

What is cream for you soul? Maybe some of the above will become ‘Cream for your Soul’.

Enjoy the rest of your day. I Love you ALL.

Stress Makes You Thick

Pollyanna is back

Even Pollyanna had her down days but it was the love of the people that she showed kindness to that helped her back.

It was me showing love to me that brought me back.

Being authentic to myself. Acknowledging I deserve better and standing up for myself despite the consequences is an empowering feeling.

You maybe thinking “Easy for you to say but I need my job, I need to pay the bills, I have a family support.”

So do I but from previous experience of undervaluing myself and the trauma’s that it brings is just not worth it, my health and well-being is far more valuable and (now) believe if I face life from this stand point the Universe will celebrate with me and not forsake me.

I recently re-read something by Bruce Lipton about the effects of stress on the brain. Thankfully I read this in the middle of a really bad stressful state I had allowed myself in to that reminded me to pull myself up by my own boots straps.

My interpretation of Bruce’s words to myself was “Stop it, stress makes you thick”.

The last two days something has brought a massive national delay to our operations. The majority of the people have spent this time moaning and a groaning while I have sat in an oasis of calm and despite all the issues I don’t seem to have been experiencing them as much as anyone else.

Has my positive thought processes allowed the internet energies find their way in to my connection better? I doubt it …. yet?

While one particular colleague was stomping around using foul language and getting themselves in the ‘Thick state’ and they approached me and asked aren’t you stressed?

“No” I replied. “Stress is a choice and if I find myself getting stressed I’ll just change my thought. It only takes 16 seconds”

“16 seconds?”

“Yeah, in 68 seconds you will have really changed your thoughts”

He walked away spouting “You read too much”

Totally unfazed I replied “No, I don’t read enough”.

5 Years ago before really embracing The Law of Attraction I was a mess. A terrified puddle basically. Now when I get stressed at some point I go “how did I let that happen’. It is so infrequent it will rock me.

At 3am I went back to bed buzzing because I couldn’t sleep, came downstairs, repaired two pairs of pants/trousers that I have been meaning to fix for ages, journaled and read some Liz Gilbert – Big Magic. Ended it on a high note in the book and took myself back of to bed feeling – Big Magic.

Happiness is a habit we can cultivate if we keep practicing and keep reading the right books.

I nearly peed myself while I wanted to eat a Sxxt sandwich

Inspiration to blog hits me in varying rates and sometimes its non stop in the most inappropriate moments with no practical time to live stream my thoughts into a physical written word.

Today it hit me whilst driving and I grabbed my laptop the instant I walked through the door.

The content was my previous blog post regarding internet V Universe where I documented about Mike Dooleys example of how the Universe can bring you a desire.

I believe the adage ‘there are no accidents’.

So instead of accidentally I will say ‘I pressed most appropriate button at that point in time’.

The other day I found (at the most appropriate moment) some tutorials on YouTube about MacBooks and I have been hooked ever since. It never dawned on me to look for tutorials before but that was another series of appropriate moments and I try to watch as many as I can when ever I can and I wanted to try out something I learnt so I went on YouTube and just tapped on a window, any window just to try it out but as the words started to play out something struck me.

I am liking the sound of this material I will listen to this. Remember it was a completely random hit, or was it? Well it was on my part but was it so random on the Universes part?

I can’t really articulate or won’t for your sake the whole interview so I have included it before but OMG. The information I heard got me so excited I nearly peed my pants.

I have dreams like we all do and I start but then fear, self-doubts, lack of confidence, perfectionism, anxiety gets in the way and they remain dreams.

What I heard in the content below made me realise that I am not the only one to feel like this and more surprisingly was to hear people who appear fearless have exactly the same feelings I outlined above. It’s normal, it’s not going away so what we need to do is find a work around and for me the information contained in that interview was the work around. I found it so inspiring I actually embraced the thought of eating the Sxxt sandwiches that come with following your dreams and bought the authors book “Big Magic” instantly, thanks to the power of the internet.

PS: Catch the Speech on YouTube that Marie refers to as that will make you want to pee your pants as well.
