Recognizing The Endless Opportunities Life Presents Us — May 8, 2020

Recognizing The Endless Opportunities Life Presents Us

recognising-endless-possibilities

“So many things are possible as long as you don’t know they are impossible.” “Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.” “Turn your obstacles into opportunities and your problems into possibilities.”

This poem was posted in a group I’m in, it speaks about the world which offers many levels to us while revealing our inner selves. There is still 24hours in the day and though a lot of us are currently going racing into work each day, our days are still pretty much brimming over with things to do. For me, life is the same as it has always been if one thing stops, there’s always something else starting.

“I am Called To Live The Abundant Life Not The Exhausted Life, I am Planted To Thrive Not To Survive!” ~Jaachynma N.E. Agu

In the past few weeks, we have discovered that many of the things we thought were impossible are now possible and now more than ever is a perfect the time to invite abundance into our lives, for ourselves and for those around us.

This is a private group for anyone interested in taking this time as an opportunity for expanding their Abundance consciousness. We will be participating in 21 days of guided meditation and activities to go along with the meditations. Please feel free to invite anyone that you feel would be interested in participating.

Together in this space, as a collective, we will be focusing our Attention while setting clear Intention we want to bring into our lives, as well as magnifying what is possible for ourselves, our communities, and for our planet!

Please feel free to join the group and invite anyone you feel may be interested in joining. If you having difficulties accessing the group, please send me a message saying that you’re unable to join.

Staying Sane In A World On The Edge Of Insanity — April 24, 2020

Staying Sane In A World On The Edge Of Insanity

 

Bluebell 2

“When you are joyful, when you say yes to life and have fun and project positivity all around you, you become a sun in the center of every constellation, and people want to be near you.”
~Shannon L. Alder

For the past few weeks, we’ve all be inundated with the Coronavirus. We’ve chatted about it with Family and Friends, we’re still keeping in touch with. I must confess, there have been times I felt myself on that brink of a meltdown, it’s not the staying home part that’s pushing me to the edge. It’s all the paranoia surrounding the pandemic, people are really letting their fear get the most of them. It’s not being able to do something as simple as grocery shopping. It’s the constant battle to remain sane when the world seems to be on the edge of insanity right now.

“It’s easy to complain about your life – how tough it is, how unfair it is, how stressful it is, how everyone else has it much better. But if you step into the life of someone you envy for just a day, you’ll discover that everyone has their own problems, and they’re usually worse than yours. Because your problems are designed specifically for you, with the specific purpose of helping you grow.”
~Kevin Hart –

“Be thankful for everything that happens in your life; it’s all an experience.”
~Roy T. Bennett

Like most of you reading this right now, I’m in lockdown. While I value the time I get to spend with my family, I worry about my family who is not with me and my friends who are currently still working. The hours have melted into days, days into weeks and before you know it weeks will melt into months.  As you transition your lives to accommodate the changes set before you, you should not allow yourself to become overwhelmed by the feeling of fear!  Rather invite that of gratitude!

“Trials in life help us to grow by making us not only better persons than we were before but by making us stronger. The challenge to become a better version of yourself  is not dwelling too long on your trials but rather, Focusing the good that lies ahead”                    ~ Etta D. Richards

I grew up hearing my grandparents and many in their age group speaking about Hurrican Besty,  for them it was one of the worse hurricanes to have passed through the Bahamas during the 60s. They would speak about palm trees being snapped in half, massive flooding resulting in people being trapped in their homes for days. Here in Scotland they speak about Snowstorms and flooding, a few years ago I experienced one of those snowstorms and yes it was pretty bad, it snowed for what felt like forever, schools, businesses were forced to shut. But then it stopped snowing. In all that we’ve experienced many of us have persevered, we made it through because everything comes to an end and in the aftermath, we always look back on the storms, the floods with gratitude that we made it through.
