4. REMEMBER, IT’S ALL ABOUT BEING IN HARMONY WITH SOURCE.

YOUR THOUGHTS CAN EITHER EMERGE FROM A BEINGNESS THAT’S IN RAPPORT WITH INTENTION OR IN CONTRADICTION WITH IT

This was a lesson that came to me later in life.  I wasted too many years worrying about the things that may or may not go wrong. As a single mum with sole responsibility for two gorgeous sons, and having no choice but to work full-time,  I struggled with guilt at how many hours I didn’t get to spend with my children because of the demanding nature of being a teacher. I should have instead focused on the beautiful quality hours we did spend together and the lovely memories that we made.

When I started to live with more intention in my life and to really get what Wayne meant when he said: “You get what you think about all day long,” more and more of the good things showed up in my life. I stopped the worrying that had become a deeply entrench habit and instead trusted in the Universe to provide the things that were needed. Amazingly, miracles started to show up in my life. The daily stress that I used to live with disappeared and my life became more joyful and the things that I started to focus on started to show up in my life. My sleep improved dramatically as I no longer went to bed worrying about all the things that could go wrong. Instead, I employed one of Wayne’s techniques where I would spend the last five minutes before I went to sleep, placing in my mind all the things I wanted to manifest in my life as well as thinking about all the things that I am grateful for. Wayne called it “marinating in your sleep” and this simple technique really does work!

5. SELF-RESPECT SHOULD BE A NATURAL STATE FOR YOU, JUST AS IT IS FOR THE ANIMAL KINGDOM.

THERE’S NO RACCOON OUT THERE THAT BELIEVES ITSELF UNWORTHY OF WHAT IT INTENDS TO HAVE!

As a former teacher, I sometimes feel sad at how young teenage girls feel the need to sexualize themselves in order to get attention.  Sadly, this is happening at a younger age and the mad world we live in of “selfies” perpetuates an image that is not real. Social media drives this endless pursuit of living a life that is often not real as we try to be “perfect” and showcase to the world, what we think they want to see from us.

If we love who we are in all the acceptance that is possible through the grace of God/Source, then we are able to respect who we are even in those moments of imperfection. As Wayne said: “Stop striving, and instead focus on arriving”.  Live in the moment.  Feel and know that you are a divine human who God/Source created in all of your majestic beauty. If you live your life with authenticity, then self-respect becomes an easy by-product!Stop putting yourself down. Stop criticizing those perceived imperfections and instead love yourself unconditionally as it only in loving oneself that you can truly love another.

6. MEDITATE, NOT MEDICATE!

YOU DON’T NEED ANOTHER DIET, WORKOUT MANUAL OR PERSONAL TRAINER. GO WITHIN, LISTEN TO YOUR BODY AND TREAT IT WITH ALL THE DIGNITY AND LOVE YOUR SELF-RESPECT DEMANDS.

Wayne realized that meditation provides a powerful tool for inner peace as well as self-understanding. It is one of the major tools I teach my clients. I find that when I meditate, I find profound peace and comfort.  I will often do a walking meditation on the beach when I am troubled or perplexed about something and I always find that after the meditation, I have the answer that has eluded me prior to meditation. Meditation provides true healing and clarity and it is something that we can all incorporate easily into our lives.  Strangely, even this blog came about as a result of a meditation on the beach. I wanted to write something more personal and didn’t know where to start and then as I was doing a walking meditation, the suggestion to write about my greatest learnings from my mentor, hit me square in the face and I knew that I wanted to share this with you.Walking meditations can be so powerful! Let go of preconceived ideas that meditation needs to be done a certain way, such as sitting in an upright position.In fact, walking meditations are my favourite type of meditation and one I turn to whenever I feel stuck or in need of inspiration.  Choose a spot in nature that you love.  Allow every step to be enjoyable and rejoice at the wonders of life. It can be something mundane (eg, you might see a weed growing through a crack in the concrete, and be grateful at the miracles of life). As you walk, be joyful and aware that your mind, body and soul walk with you.  Be present to each step and allow each step to bring greater awareness of joy and peace in your life.

It is important to commit to meditations regularly. It is better to do a short two minute meditation daily than a forty minute meditation once per week.  Focus on your breathing and always breath in through your nose. If you are looking an object such as a candle, keep your gaze softly on that object. If you are not using an object, just close your eyes and sit in a comfortable position with your feet flat on the floor. (Longer mediations can be done lying down).  Relax your body and take a number of deep breathes and exhale slowly. Turn your attention to your breathing. Breathe naturally, preferably through the nostrils, without attempting to control your breath, and try to become aware of the sensation of the breath as it enters and leaves the nostrils. This sensation is your object of meditation and you should try to concentrate on it to the exclusion of everything else.

At first, your mind will be very busy, and you might even feel that the meditation is making your mind busier; but in reality you are just becoming more aware of how busy your mind actually is. There will be a great temptation to follow the different thoughts as they arise, but simply acknowledge the thought and then let it go andfocus on the sensation of the breath. Meditation WILL help you to get in touch with your spirituality but please be patient. It won’t happen straight away. Remember, it takes 21 days for a habit to be formed. Meditation is also wonderful to relieve stress as well as bring clarity. I find I get many answers after I have done a meditation, so if there are areas of your life that you are struggling with, then meditate on them. Medical studies have shown that people who meditate, are happier people! They also sleep better, have better heart health due to decreased blood pressure, etc. These are some other benefits of meditation:

  • Improving your memory
  • Enhancing your creativity
  • Drastically improving your ability to think clearly
  • Improved problem solving abilities
  • Decreasing anxiety
  • Reducing irritability and moodiness
  • Enjoying a more positive outlook
