You Are a Manifesting Machine, But You Have No Idea.

Maybe you roll your eyes at the idea of manifesting your goals or dreams. Or perhaps you tried it but feel like you didn’t do it “well enough.”

Stop judging the concept and your initial outcomes. Instead, open to your power to create change so that you can manifest your life. Everything on the planet is shifting, so the time is now.

You are a manifesting machine, but you have no idea how powerful you are because you’re not paying attention.

Embrace Your Emotions and Lean Into Change.

A new normal is coming and you can chose to stay stuck in the past and in fear or lean into your emotions and start to make changes for the future, now.

When new challenges and new pain comes our way, old ways of dealing just won’t get the job done. This means new tools, new resources and new ways of thinking are required.

Change isn’t coming, it’s already here. Are you ready to embrace it?

A Changing Social Life = A Changing Life

When we change one thing, we change everything. When we change a big thing in our lives, we transform our lives.

Now that the dust has started to settle and we’re hitting our third week of our extended home-stay, new habits and new normals are getting engrained into our lives and minds.

I’ve noticed a stronger sense of calmness and a stronger sense of “now is the time to make change” this week for sure. How about you?

What You Don’t Want > What You Do Want

Life has changed in a a big way right now, and this isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

If we chose to, we can use this extended home-stay to take a look within, decide what’s working in our lives, what isn’t and start to pivot and make major changes for the better. We can do all of this and use this time as a transformational container or we can continue to distract ourselves and do nothing. The choice is really up to each of us to decide.

You Don’t “Have To” Do Anything

Last week, we introduced the concept of “limiting beliefs” and examined how our thoughts and language ultimately control our potential, actions and performance.

Your language can control you or can free you. The choice is yours, and you always have a choice.

Do you use words such as “have to,” “need to” and “must”? If so, what are you really saying? What are these words telling you about your reality? See, sense and feel this question.

Empathy Fatigue

Are you or someone you know an “empath” or someone who “feels” the mental or emotional state of others? Is it effecting yours or their life, health and happiness while others feel better?

If so, I have a new way of looking at empathy today, one that can change your life, happiness and health.

I want you to move from being empathetic to being compassionate. I’m not suggesting you stop caring and don’t support others, I’m simply suggesting that you start to support other with healthy boundaries for yourself.

The “Sweet Spot”: The Intersection of Happiness and Success.

Most of us have no idea what we want, many of us don’t even know what we don’t want.

We then wonder why we are not happy; we then wonder why we are unfulfilled; we then wonder why we can’t get to where we want to go.

How can we honestly expect to achieve our goals and create our dreams if we haven’t defined our destination?

We wouldn’t do this in business, we wouldn’t do this with a personal trainer, it would be a waste of time and maybe even get someone fired.

But, for some reason, when it comes to our happiness and dreams, we think the rules are different.

They are not.

5 Top Yoga Poses to Build Strength

A weak body can neither get any work done nor has a strong immune system. Eating healthy only solve the problem partially. A regular yoga practice can go a long way in making the body strong and flexible.

Boat Pose

You need a strong core to do the Boat pose and the asana strengthens your core further. Sit on the ground by putting the hands on both the sides of your buttocks. Now sit on the buttock by leaning towards the back and stretch your legs out in the front. Lift your legs up at an angle of 45 degrees to the ground. Keep your spine straight and the lower abdomen flat. Raise your hands up to the knee such that they are parallel to the ground.

The Boat pose tightens and strengthens the core muscles of the abdomen and back as well as hip flexors. It also improves prostate, kidneys, thyroid, and intestine health.

Goddess Pose

The Goddess Pose enhances both strength and stamina. It allows the muscles to be stretched and toned.

Stand in mountain pose, and focus on your breathing. Keep your feet apart and sideways. Bend your knees and lower your hips up to the height of your knees. Keep your arms at shoulder height in the namaskar mudra such that your fingertips are pointing upwards. Maintain this position for 30 seconds. Repeat.

Bridge Pose

This yoga pose stretches the neck, chest, spine, and hips. It boosts blood circulation by strengthening back, buttocks, and hamstrings. The bridge pose reduces stress and depression, and improves lungs, thyroid and abdominal organs’ health. Lie down and bend the knees. Then try raising your buttocks so that your thighs are parallel to the ground. Your body now makes a bridge-like pose. Maintain this pose for 30 seconds or more.

Triangle Pose

The Triangle Pose enhances strength and flexibility by working the legs, hips, muscles around the knee, ankle joints, hamstrings, calves, chest, shoulders, and spine.

Stand straight with your legs apart in a triangular shape. Bend on the right side and try to touch the right foot with right hand while keeping the other one raised upwards. Repeat on the other side.

Plough Pose

The Plough pose stretches the muscles in your lower back and neck. It also facilitates the release of stress and tension.

Lie down facing to the sky. Stretch your arms wide on your sides. Slowly lift your legs overhead and then place them on the back of your head. Lift your back so that your feet can move farther away from your head. Your hands and the stretched shoulder blades will support your upper back.
