A choice to make – A Journey to Well Being

You get to decide what you hurt about

You get to choose how long you hurt for

 

When you are ready

 

When you desire Wellness and seek it, just a little

 

It will unfold  for you

At a pace you can easily handle

 

You get to experiment

Learn

Understand

Know

What Well Being looks like for you

 

…and the journey will give you great wisdom and clarity…if you let it

 

It is just a decision you make

 

“I want to get well”

“I want to experience what Well Being looks like for me”

“I am going to learn how to be well”

“I am going to find hope”

“I am going to find Beauty and Magic and Joy”

 

Feel your way….

 

And you say it to yourself quite a few times a day

 

 

 

“I want to get well”

“I want to get well”

“I want to get well”

“I want to get well”

“I want to get well”

“I want to get well”

“I want to get well”

 

Feel it get clearer and stronger as you repeat it for a while..as long as You need

Days/Weeks/Months

Who cares how long it is taking

There is only You at Your place in Your journey

You are spectacularly unique and wonderful

Explore yourself

 

 

Seek within

Listen to your self-talk now and again.

Just make a decision to notice it here and there

 

…and then remember  “I’m going to get well” if you notice your thoughts make you feel down

 

Embrace the power of this simple statement “I’m going to get well”

 

Feel it in your bones

In your Soul

 

Expect that your walk to Wellness will take 6 months to 2 years perhaps. Depending upon which aspect of the learning you are focusing upon, when you begin

Where you are starting, in this very personal journey

 

 

Start a conversation with yourself and tell a different story

A story of where you are going

Not where you have been

 

Try another thought, now and then

One that brings a smile perhaps

Change your focus

Look up and outward into the light

Appreciate something, anything, in this moment now

 

Whenever you do that, you look toward your best self

 

And as you seek, the teachers will appear

The perfect one for you

 

Just make a decision

 

“It’s time for me to know what Well Being looks like”

 

“I choose to experience Well Being”

Using your feelings to guide you – A Journey to Well Being

 

Your thoughts create the feelings within you

Not the other way round

 

It is a furphy, a misnomer that keeps you powerless

It is deceptive to say it is the other way round

 

Your thoughts create the feelings within you

 

I am one who walked this path for many years

I know it intimately

In my bones and my soul

This is so

 

What you think is what you feel not the other way round

 

So use the feeling, to show what you are seeking

It will be different at different  times

 

Feeling powerless, seeking empowerment.

Feeling physically can’t/unable, seeking limitlessness.

Feeling blah, seeking health

Feeling tired, seeking vitality

 

Now turn and look in that direction

 

Look to the inner world first

What makes you feel empowered, vital, healthy, unlimited

What can you do, however small that gives you just a little nudge in that direction

 

If you can’t find it in the inner world. Look in the outer

Google beautiful images or fractal Art if you are unable to go outside at this moment

 

 

Better still, go for a walk

This should in your top 5 healing tools. A regular goto place for you to seek your well being

A gift you give yourself

Preferably in an environment that helps you feel calm

landscape

Whatever you prefer

You get to choose

Do what might make your heart sing

 

heart sing

 

There are no excuses  anymore, for not attending to your well being, once you have made the decision to get well

 

You have a choice, keep looking at your victimhood

Keep feeling your  victimhood and that will be your expression of yourself

Or, try to glance in the opposite direction, now and then

When you are having a better day

Or a better moment

You don’t have to try to do it much of the time at first

Take the gentle path Look now and again

Seek a little here or there

Not all at once.

 

Look at how your negative feelings are actually lighting you a path for you. Telling you what to look for, where you are going.

Your inner world, your outer world and the world beyond (your spiritual beliefs)  are all expressions of what your seeking. They are signposts for you.

This is so

Meditation 3 – Music, Mantra and the Breath

quiet the mind

 

Meditation 3 – Putting it together

Music, Mantra and the Breath

 

 

This is a 3 part easy intro to meditation

Please see Meditation 1 and Meditation 2 here first

 

1. Putting it all together

Get comfy, where you will be undisturbed

Start listening to your music

 

2. Develop your full breath

As you breathe in

 Let the belly rise

Let the waist expand outward

The lower ribcage opens

The shoulders lift

 

As you breathe out

 

The shoulders soften

The ribcage closes

The waist retracts

 The belly falls

 Breathe at a rhythm you can comfortably manage

 

3. Start the Well Being mantra

Say it softly in your mind.

As you practise synchronise it with your breathing

 

                In breath

 “Breath more deeply”

                Out breath

 “Go with the flow”

                In breath

 “It’s all easy”

                Out breath

 “Relax, let go”

 

Repeat

 

Work toward doing this mantra 10 times

 

When you start meditating, you will notice your thinking wanders. This is just the natural process of your mind learning how to quiet

 It is normal

Just go with it

 

Whenever you notice you have wandered off….bring your attention back to your breathing and start again

 

If it didn’t come easily to you today – just chill… and try again tomorrow
