You will always attract that which you focus on…

... everything under control ...?

... everything under control ...?

Attempting to Control Others Attracts More to Be Controlled…

It is easy to understand how you would come to the conclusion that your path to feeling good is through influencing or controlling the behavior of others. But as you attempt to control them (through influence or coercion), you discover that not only can you not contain them – but your attention to them brings more like them into your experience. You simply cannot get to where you want to be by controlling or eliminating the unwanted.

Preconceived Ideas

Do you have preconceived ideas?
Here is your task: Have a look at the video below and stop at exactly 0:40 min.

If you have really stopped, ask yourself now: What are you thinking about Stacey?

What do you think the judge’s preconceived ideas might be according to Stacey’s look, accent, personality?

And now finish watching the video.

All of our preconceptions are based on our beliefs and values that we’ve adapted from influential people in our life while growing up:  parents, teachers, family members and friends.

We all have preconceived ideas. What matters is whether we just have them, accept them, live with them and judge the world around them according to them or if we question them and allow to be surprised by what is actually happening as opposed to what we expect to happen.

What If… today was your last day?

There has been a song on the radio recently called ‘If today was your last day’ sung by Nickelback which makes me really think: What if today was my last day?

There have been a few deaths of people I knew, friends of people I know… and as sad as it might be it allows serves me as a reminder to live every moment fully.

What would you do, if today was your last day? Continue Reading What If… today was your last day?…

The Power of Gratitude

The Power of Gratitude

~

We can never bring anything to us unless we are grateful for what we have. In fact, if somebody was completely and utterly grateful for everything, they would never have to ask for anything, because it would be given to them before they even asked.

That is the power of Gratitude.

Without you this universe will loose

some poetry, some beauty:

A song will be missed,

a note will be missed,

there will be a gap –

nobody has told you that?

Gender Differences real or imagined?

Gender Differences: Real or Imagined?

Since the release of the latest comedy ‘The Ugly Truth’ the male-female intimate relationship structures are again under observation. Even though it is a comedy revisiting the old and well-known cliché of male and female differences it still leaves couples and singles going home and re-thinking the gender differences.

Here are the film’s quotes: The Ugly Truth about Men:

  1. Stop trying to win a man’s heart. Aim lower.
  2. Men are visual creatures.
  3. If you want a relationship, here is how you get one: It’s called a Stairmaster.
  4. Laugh at whatever a man says.
  5. No man is saying ‘I love you’ without expecting something in return. And by something, it’s not a home-cooked meal.
  6. Women, you have to be two people in order to lure your man: the saint and the sinner, the librarian and the stripper.

Let’s have a look at the truth behind some of the points mentioned above: Continue Reading The Ugly Truth About Men and Women…

Spiritual Awakening Through Illness

Illness as a Way

Illness as a Way

Everyone has had the experience of being sick in their life. Did you get the spiritual awakening and the learnings that were presented to you?

Many of you who are on the path of becoming aware know about the metaphysical causes of illnesses. There are plenty of great books on that topic, among them my favorite from Louise Hay and Lise Bourbeau, which can be an excellent starting point in understanding your dis-ease.

Let’s look at it on a practical level: Take the example of the reoccurring bouts of flu. What are the benefits and potentials for spiritual awakenings in having the flu?

  1. Prioritizing: When your body is weakened by fever and headache you only do what is really important or urgent, like cancelling appointments, calling work to let them know you are not well. You are not wasting time with or worrying about unimportant, trivial matters.
  2. Focus on Health: You become more health conscious, you are mindful of what you eat, drink and what outside influences you expose yourself to.
  3. Speaking the Truth: You might be telling people to stop talking when you’re physically, mentally or emotionally not able to take in more. How often does it happen that you are keeping your mouth shut, when you are well, because you want to be ‘nice’? When you are sick, you are being more honest with yourself and others.
  4. Looking after Self: When you are feeling low, you have to take your own needs seriously. Looking after your body becomes a matter of self-preservation.
  5. Less Ego Fixation: If you are seriously weakened by your illness you will no longer be bothered making a point. It becomes less important to ‘be right’ and more important to ‘be well’.
  6. Sticking with the Essential: When you have throat pain, for example, you are only saying what is really necessary, leaving out all the fluff. Similarly to the previous point you are less attached to being right or being heard and trust that things will sort themselves out.
  7. Allowing Help: This is a great chance for people who find it not so easy to accept help under normal circumstances. When you are ill and cannot do certain tasks, you have to learn to accept and welcome help. For the person helping you it is also much nicer to help you as they won’t hear: ‘Oh no, that’s not necessary, I can do it myself!’

So do you have to get sick to learn those lessons or can you do it while you are well?
