My top six tips to colour the world around you good

Want some tips to colour the world in and around you good?  Let’s get started.

Now, I am not a fairy. I do not hold a magic wand and walk around enchanting the world. Well, I sort of do.  Over the years I discovered my own ways to be in the world and here they are:

A LIKE AWARENESS

And by that I mean self awareness. I reckon Daniel Goleman’s words will be the best here to describe it:

Self-awareness means the ability to monitor our inner world – our thoughts and feelings

It is only when we take a look at our inner world, see what has been going on there, admit we made a mistake, we hurt somebody, we f*ked up, we said something hurtful, make peace with that and accept it as an indispensable part of our human existance and move on. You no longer need to feed yourself with: I should have done that or I shouldn’t/I could have done it the other way. Personally, I think that being self aware is equal to being an active participator in your life rather than a passive observer.

 Once I began to stop and be conscious and reallign, things started to shift.

 

I no longer was reacting to issues in the same way. I was able to pause, see what was not working for me, I was able to see patterns through which I was sabotaging my life. It definitely paid off.

 

B LIKE BLESSING

Blessings rock. I wholeheartedly recommend to bless everyone you pass, every person you talk to. WHY? the answer is simple: Blessings raise both your vibe and the other person too. I remember walking many times, particularly in the morning and saying : ‘I bless you” to every single person I saw. I blessed a dog, birds, I blessed tha passing cars, a bus driver,  It felt good. If felt warm on my heart. And blessings have really high frequency  thus why not make it your daily thing? I assure it does make you feel great. Try it for a day and see how your day goes. After my morning blessing ritual, I am still buzzing and I am basking in that feeling. Today as my day unfolds I will do the blessings as I go, because:

they freaking rock!

 

C LIKE COMPLIMENT

This is another amazing tool to raise your vibrations and others too. I remember having really hard time accepting compliments. It felt like they never belonged to me.

I felt awkward!

and my very first response was: Who? Me? – no, do not say that. Look at my hair, disaster!  You have lovely shoes – my repsonse was: my mum bought them, I do not really like them. To be honest, I was not even keen on receiving them, forget about giving ones to other people. A huge shift came from Louise Hay books – she was a true gem of promoting self love ( my post here about her rules for loving yourself). I remember when I first started doing mirror work and say things like: You are pretty, You have beautiful eyes, Your smile is lovely, You are the sunshine, you rock Monika.

It felt uncomfortable and bizzare even.

However, with practice it has become easier. I receive and give compliments and the smile I see on other people faces is the greatest reward and I am sure they feel the same way too.

 

D LIKE DREAM

Dream whatever you like and I mean it. Dream daily about your desires like they are alredy in your life. while you do it, start thinking how you feel having the love of your life, how you feel driving your car, how you feel being a writer, how you feel being a singer, how you feel living the life you desire. Dreams when accompanied by emotions manifest easier. Do not forget to take action though. That helps! 🙂

 

E LIKE EASE

I love the word and it was my 2017 word. Hey do you guys have your 2018 word by the way?? No, not yet? Then think about it as it is great have a focus word for the full year. Things are happening amazingly right now for me as I deliberately concentrate on my 2018 word. Now, EASE is my favourite one and I always add it to my day when I dream it or bless it. My mentor Lana is the queen of ease and manifesting and she was the one that instgated that in me even before I joined MYLA.

Wonderful experiences began to appear once I added the feeling of ease to whatever I was doing and I can surely say that 2017 was the year of  ease for me.

Ease is easy.

Wherever you go, whatever you do every day, make sure you add pinch of ease for smoother paths, harmonious relationships, uplifting conversations, great sales, prompt completion of projects. for me it is like adding that extra ingredient to your favourite dish just to make it taste better. Ahhhhh… what a feeling 🙂

F LIKE FLOWER POWER

I love flowers, I mean I simply can not imagine life without them. Flowers make me feel happy, make me smile. Every week, I buy a bunch of them because I feel like it. no occasion. just a wish. It has been my ritual for quite a while . Do you have your favuorite ones? I do and it depends on the season too. Nowadays I go for tulips and daisies. I can not wait for summer and sunflowers. There is something magical when it comes to being surronded by flowers. I feel free. I feel connected. My soul sings. And I guess the feelings of connection and joy I have inside start expanding to the outside world too.

High Five for flower vibes

And you? Do you colour the world good? what are your ways? I would love to know. Comment below and share with friends. Let’s raise the vibartions together.

It is never too late … to start over

I have heard it million, if not gazillion times : “It is too late, I can not do it, if it’s meant for me then it will happen”.  Well I say: It is never ever too late to start over your life.

But hey, I can not simply rewind my life.

Nop, indeed. However, you can easily let go of stuff that does not serve your highest good anymore, you can easily regroup and start charging ahead in the wanted direction. I sometimes sing when I feel like I am going upstream. It is one of the ways that allow me to stop and realign within.  Here is the link to my past article about music as it does make me feel alive and makes me feel like I can do stuff again. Choose your power song and sing “It is too late to do this or that” away. Frozen song fits perfectly into that mood:

Let it go, let it go, can’t hold it back anymore

I often hear from clients and friends: ” I am stuck, I feel like wherever I turn to, I see blocks”. And it feels like you can not figure it out or you feel like you are not good enough and everything around is just bla blah blah. The truth is that you are never stuck, My Dear, you are evolving. The ‘feeling stuck’ thing is just your fear of moving towards what you truly desire. Because I am telling you: YOU ARE GREAT. YOU WERE CREATED GREAT and you can do amazing things if you choose to see your light inside.  On many occasions, we feel stuck because we can not yet see our ability to shine, we turn to dark place and once we are there, we hide. Because it is easier to sit in  the comfort of darkness. At least, it is the darkness we know. And then it takes one little spark to see the light, to see our greatness.  Why do we not want to see our greatness?

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure” – Marianne Williamson

 

We tend to be so hard on ourselves, we fail and we scold ourselves for not doing great. We drag on things we did wrong years ago and thus we carry that energy around us.  That baggage in the form of failure, heartbreaks, negative work experiences, rejections, arguments and the list could go on and on, is truly our treasure as these were merely lessons for us. I get it, at first it is hard enough to see all of that with a positive eye. However, if we allow ourselves to look at those from a different angle, or perhaps allow a mentor, a coach or a good friend to encourage us to stop and ponder for a while what exactly went wrong, why it happened, why we reacted that way etc, only then we can twist all those negative experiences into the ones we would like to have.

 It is never a one stop job.

At least once a year, I will take a piece of paper and do the exercise called Wheel of Life. I bet you have heard about it like many times yet you just either did the exercise half way or simply skipped doing it. And you know what: that is ok as you can do it now. It is never too late.  I do it because I wish to assess where I am in my life to see what is going great for me and what needs more balance or upgrade.  I love the exercise as it clearly shows the areas of your life that could do with some clearing and polishing. And some areas will need a good scrub too. So go ahead grab a piece of paper and draw a fine circle and divide it into the  following:

 

 

Once that is done, simple spend some time over each area and pu a dot on the line in each of them. Imagine each line is a scale 1 to 10 and simply choose the place on the line you feel it is.  The below questions can be helpful:

LOVE       – Do you easily give and receive love? Do you feel loved?

HEALTH – Are you happy with your diet? How fit are you? How often do you exercise?

MONEY  – Are you happy with your current income? Is your money mindset doing fine?

CAREER – Are you going into right direction? Is your job the one?

FUN        –  How much fun is in your life right now? Can you be playful?

FAMILY& FRIENDS – Do you feel supported by friends and family? Do you spend quality time with  them?

PERSONAL GROWTH –  Are you aware of your growth? Do you look for ways to develop yourself?

SPIRITUALITY  –  How connected are you to your inner self?

Finished? Great job! Now join up the dots around the circle. what do you see? Does your circle look balanced? Imagine a bike, and look at your circle. Do you think you could ride your bike on circle like that? That exercise gives you a visual representation of your life right now.  Does it make you feel great and joyful or worried and anxious?

If the first ones, then congratulations. If the latter ones, ask yourself: what area could I work on first and what one action step could I take right now to change it?

We all are moving either upstream or downstream. Learning about yourself is an ongoing process and only those who are willing to look within, assess and take lessons and make new approaches toward them,  can shift mindset so it guides them to flow downstream. The path of ease.  what about you? Have you ever felt stuck? If so, how did you deal with that feeling? What made you move forward? Share some insights below in comments. You never know what benefit and impact it may have on somebody’s else life.

And remember and remind yourself this:

it is never ever too late to start over!
