Positive Pause – 28th December 2015 – Embrace January!

embrace januaryEmbrace January!

As the dawn of 2016 rises this January 1st, many of us will be shaking off the excess of New Year’s Eve celebrations and the many Christmas parties. This is the time of year when traditionally we begin to expect a lot of ourselves to make changes in our lives.

From this expectation comes pressure and from pressure comes stress and from stress comes nothing but exhaustion and an excess of cortical in your system. The cortisol leaves you drained and decreases your immune system. When we are stressed we are evidently not in a position to create positive change.

This January, take away all the pressure to change, to set goals, to make New Year’s resolutions. When we take the pressure off ourselves we actually achieve more.  You don’t need to change, if you wish to embrace change, find the part of you that already knows how to do this effortlessly and easily. For example, if this year you have set yourself a goal of  getting properly fit, think back to similar positive changes you have made in the past. Imagine yourself already fit, toned and full of energy. Your subconscious will start to manifest the changes from your thoughts and feelings so that, before you know it, you will find yourself going for a run and wanting to do this without any sense of pressure or reliance on will-power.

The power of your imagination is limitless; by tricking your body into already feeling the rewards of being fit, of getting the a new job, of meeting the love of your life, then you will start to create the chemical in your brain that attracts that into your life.

Make 2016 a year of no pressure and an abundance of success in every way.  Embrace January! Embrace positivity!

Positive Pause – 19th October 2015 – Mindflight

Plane in skyThis week, tap into the power of your imagination. Living in the present moment is an incredible technique that helps you to appreciate the wonder of being alive.  However, if your imagination feels like going on a journey, allow it to roam free and see your future.  Allow your mind to visualise your dreams as if they are already true. The beauty of the subconscious mind is that it does not understand the difference between reality and imagination. By closing your eyes and visualising whatever it is that you desire your body and mind will benefit from a sense of accomplishment and success.

In addition to experiencing an incredible moment in your mind, you are laying the seeds that will allow you to realise your dream both in your mind and in reality.  When we use our minds in this way, we automatically look for and act upon opportunities that allow our dreams to become our reality.  This is mindflight.
