A Thousand Thoughts!!

Things have been quite crazy around here lately.

We moved here from Western Australia just over 2 years and it was a move I was never happy about. Since moving here I've tried to make friends, joined various community groups etc but never settled in.

My husband surprised me and suggested we move back to Western Australia and even cold called companies and got himself an interview. Yesterday we had a medical. We are now waiting for the job offer which he was told would come in the next couple of days.

So, I have had so much going on in my head............and haven't been sleeping well because of it all!!

Everything is dependant on each other ~ can't buy house til job is certain, need settlement to coincide with moving interstate, getting removals quotes (eeekkkkk!!).

I've neglected this blog, Mantra Mondays and my Soul Coaching but come Sunday I am back into it again. (we have my husband's postponed work Christmas weekend away this weekend.)

I will, despite the craziness of decision making allocate some time to myself daily and not feel guilty about it!

This Year's Motto

"Less is More"
I've never had a motto/word for the year so this is another first for me!

I've chose this saying as it relates to many aspects of my life;

* less clutter, more space ~ decluttering

* less stress, more happiness

* less tension, more relaxation

* less anger, more laughter

* less procrastination, more doing

* less doubting, more confidence

* less eating foods that hurt my stomach, more eating healthier foods

* less laziness, more exercise

Day 15 ~ Soul Coaching

I can't believe it's already day 15 of this wonderful journey.

I've just returned from being away for a few days but took my Soul Coaching with me and read through days 11 to 14 and did a couple of activities.

Now, I'm back into it full swing and it's the beginning of fire week.

This is described in the book as;

"Time to awake up the spirit. To do this, move your body. All the submerged emotional baggage that got stirred up in Water Week can now shift out of your energy field with the powerful activation of fire.

This is the week of spiritual purification, facing fears, releasing anger, and taking action."

"This is also the week that many breakthroughs occur. This is also the time to begin to change old, limiting patterns and habits. Routines and habits can lock you into repeating negative cycles in life.

One of the most important ways to change your self is with action. We often hesitate to take actions because of fear - fear of success, fear of failure, or even deep subconscious fears."

Today's level 1 activity is about acknowledging fears so they have less power.

I'm afraid of;

* people laughing at me (lack of confidence)

* swimming in the ocean or in water where I can't see the bottom (imagination gets better of me!)

* noises in the night (imagination at work again)

* large birds!

I can't think of any more fears.

After repeating days' affirmation "I am safe", I definitely feel safer!

I'm away for a couple of days and won't have internet access.

I'll still be working my way through the wonderful Soul Coaching book, it's already packed in my bag!

I'll be catching up on all of your inspirational blogs as soon as I can!

Energy Zappers & Juicers ~ Day 10

As stated in the Soul Coaching book
"An energy zapper is anything that lowers your energy and thus decreases your life force. Often you become so used to living with these zappers that you are not even conscious of their effect on you. Just becoming aware of them will diminish their power."

I am aware of a couple of energy zappers;

* my daughter's father ~ having to talk/deal with him (another 6 years til she's 18!)

* when I say yes instead of no to avoid upsetting someone/hurting their feelings

* doing something I dislike

* shopping (I dislike it!)

"I am moving into harmony with everyone and everything in my universe."
Today's affirmation was difficult; it just didn't ring true for the day (it would've last week when I was relaxed!).

It's well & truly water week!

Day 9 Soul Coaching

Rain gauge on my outdoor sink in our vegie garden area

It's raining, it's pouring.......and it has been since late last night!!

I love rain; it cools the air, waters our gardens, fills up my 2 rainwater tanks, tops up our pool (we lose a lot of water to evaporation in summer), helps the farmers crops and fills the dams which supply our water supplies.

I am so thankful for the rain!!

Today's affirmation from the Soul Coaching book is
"My life experiences have positive, powerful meanings."

I was to think about what meanings I gave to everything that happened to me throughout the day. I tried give positive's something I will continue to work on.

Due to family commitments I didn't get around to the cleaning task for the day so I will do it tomorrow along with that days tasks.

I'm off to have a shower before bed and wash away any negativity!

Turning Points in Your Life ~ Day 8 (Water)

This is the beginning of Water Week and as water traditionally represents emotions it will be interesting to see what happens throughout the week.

Today has been about examining turning/significant points in my life.

I have a few that jump into mind immediately but I'm going to stick with writing them in my journal only.

Today's affirmation in the book is
"I unconditionally accept my feelings....and what I feel is not who I am."

I must admit I haven't been very focused today.......tomorrow is a fresh start!!!

Water wise I have hand watered the garden (I prefer this to using a sprinkler as I enjoy it), swum laps in our backyard pool and washed my hair.

Tomorrow I need to wash away my negativity whilst showering!!

New Year ~ New Outlook

As 2008 ended I began reading inspiring blog posts with wonderful reflections on the year gone by and aspirations for the new year.

I used to write "New Year Resolutions" as then beat myself up mentally for not getting them done.

This new year has me looking at things differently.

I have discovered many wonderful blogs and thank you all for what you write.

This wood carving in the photo below was a Christmas present from my husband and daughter, a great surprise as I'd been admiring it in the shop for a while!!

Today when looking at it I thought of it as a door through which I'm in the process of stepping.

This year I aim to

* look on things more positively

* relax and enjoy more

* listen to my intuition

* learn to love myself &

* create with confidence

Exploring Your Soul Mission ~ Day 7

Day 7 (which was yesterday) was about beginning to explore my soul mission in life by listening for signs, coincidences and synchronicities.

I didn't notice any as I went about my day (shopping, trying to stay cool in the humidity, swimming) but I hope it will come to me as I progress through this book.

The day's affirmation was;
"Who I am is enough"

That doesn't resonate with me as I battle with my thoughts............

What an end to air week though ~ a day of heat and humidity. The air was so thick!!
