Allow yourself to be content exactly as you are.

I have gone through most of my life trying to be like someone else. Never satisfied with who I am and never happy with myself. I always wanted to be thinner, smarter, prettier, accepted, creative and, so much more, always wondering why I was none of those things.
I was never content with myself because I always thought that others were better at everything, and I was not. I would go to seep thinking and sometimes praying to be as pretty, or as thin, or as smart as my peers, and then I would be happy and have everything I needed.

I have found happiness many years ago but was too busy to notice because I kept wanting to be someone I was not.
I didn’t give myself any credit at all but would be upset when others would not give me credit or notice when I did something worth noticing.
It took me a lot of my adult years to discover that I was enough just as I am. I finally realized that I did not see or want to see the potential in myself even when people would compliment me and praise me,
I just refused to hear them and acknowledge what they were saying.

I have learned over the years that the people I always envied grew up thinking and feeling just like I was in my younger days. They were hoping and praying just like I was to be like someone else.

We need to be content exactly as we are to be truly happy, or else we will continue to chase an image of ourselves that will always be out of our reach.
Start loving the little things about yourself and start talking to yourself just like you would be talking to your best friend. After all, you are your true best friend.

Love you all,

The Power Of Words

The Power Of Words

How Words Impact Your Life



‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.’
We could all learn something from this well-known Bible verse. Looking beyond the religious overtones, there is a message to be found in this for everyone. Everything begins with a word.

Words consist of vibration and sound. It is these vibrations that create the very reality that surrounds us. Words are the creator; the creator of our universe, our lives, our reality. Without words, a thought can never become a reality. This is something that we have been taught throughout history, as far back as the Bible, which writes of ‘God’ – whatever that word may mean to you – saying ‘let there be light’ and as a result creating light.

So what can we learn from this? If our words and thoughts are the very tools with which we create our reality, then surely they are our most powerful tool yet? Surely we should only pick the very best words in order to create our very best reality? ~ KATHERINE HURST


The Power Of Words And Affirmations

Our thoughts also impact what we manifest in our lives. But it can be argued that the real power lies in our words. It is our words that provide a bold affirmation of our innermost thoughts. They are a confirmation to the world of how we see others, our lives and ourselves. It is this powerful affirmation that our words provide which enables our thoughts to manifest into a reality. So why do we choose to misuse our most powerful asset?

3 Ways To Use Words

1. Choosing Your Words Wisely

As a society, we have become conditioned to talk about our misfortunes and problems. We take our interpretations of events, people and ourselves and communicate them to the world, bringing them into existence.

So by that admission, when we moan or complain about our lives to others, we are putting those negative words out there to become a reality. When you say something out loud enough times your words become the truth not only in your own mind but in the minds of everyone you are saying them too.

If this is really so, then ask yourself – do you really want to tell yourself and everybody that you know that you are unlucky in love, unsuccessful, miserable, bored or whatever else you have been complaining about? Especially now that you know that it is these exact words that are creating the life that you live?

Begin to choose the words that you speak consciously. Practice improved self-awareness over the words that you use to describe yourself and your life. Negative, powerless words such as ‘can’t’, ‘shouldn’t’, ‘need’, ‘won’t’ should all be avoided. They strip you of your ability to manifest a life that you want to live.

As the creator of your universe, what you say goes. Therefore, next time you catch yourself about to use negative words, regain control and frame your word choices so that they have a much more positive impact on your world.

For example, if you would usually say something such as ‘I am unhealthy and overweight’ then why not turn this into a more positive, constructive statement such as ‘I am in the process of becoming healthier and every day I get closer and closer to my ideal weight’.

Your words are the paint with which you paint your reality. Choose those words wisely and positively to create a reality that is good for you.

2. ‘I Am What I Am'

Affirm who you are, your dreams, your hopes and your successes with two of the most powerful words that a person can ever utter – ‘I am’.

These two small but incredibly powerful words should be considered the most precious words that you have in your entire vocabulary. How we end the sentence ‘I am…’ defines who we are to ourselves and to everybody around us. So, when you say ‘I am…fat/lazy/shy’ or ‘I am…beautiful/confident/successful/happy’ this is the exact truth that you are creating for yourself. It doesn't even matter if there is any truth in the words that you are saying, how you finish those two little words is how you define your reality.

So why not choose a higher expression for yourself? Remind yourself of what you are and what you wish to be by starting each morning with a positive affirmation beginning with those magical words ‘I Am’. 

3. Speak From The Heart

When we complain about our lot in life, speak anxiously or use hateful words, we usually do so from a place of fear. So, the first step that you need to take in order to conquer this is to practice better self-awareness over the words that you are using.

Next time you open your mouth to complain or put yourself or others down, ask yourself:

  1. ‘Why am I about to say this?’
  2. ‘How is this going to serve me or my happiness?’

Ask yourself these two important questions and you will no doubt discover that you are in fact speaking out of fear. This is the fear that you are not good enough, fear that you are in the wrong relationship, the wrong career etc. Most importantly of all, you will realize that by voicing these fears you will be doing nothing for your happiness. Your words can only make you feel worse, manifesting these fears into your life with greater intensity.

So choose your words bravely, consciously and lovingly. Always speak from a place of love; for yourself, for your life and for others. 

Your words equal your world, so use them wisely.

Have a great Monday!!

Making wise decisions


In our modern life, we have more choice than ever before. Does so much choice put each of us in a better position to skillfully make decisions? Do more options create a sense of greater volition? Probably not. Having too many options can actually hamper good decision-making. Generally, the more options we have available, the more we’re likely to choose easy defaults that present themselves. But when we unconsciously choose convenience, we miss an opportunity to practice skillful decision making.

Making wise decisions requires two things: consciously reducing the amount of choice to be made and, importantly, practicing intentional choosing.

Shape your life by simplifying your decisions. Consciously reduce the number of choices you make, and routinize decisions by becoming a minimalist most of the time. For example, determine in advance what you wear and eat during the work week, how and when you exercise, and what you do for other forms of self-care. 
This way, you can better prioritize making other choices, especially challenging ones, while still implementing good decisions around healthy living. Enjoy spontaneity and new experiences when you have the time, energy, and quality of presence to appreciate them!

To reduce the number of decisions you need to make throughout your day, it is helpful to begin your morning with a one-minute reflection on what choices, if any, you want to focus on that day. Be specific if you can. Of course, unexpected and urgent things may come up that need attention. But having clarity approaching your day helps you stay on track. A less cluttered mind helps you to be more responsive to whatever arises that needs your attention and helps you to set limits around it.

Are you more attracted to things than experiences? Notice if a lot of energy is directed toward bright, shiny objects instead of choices that enrich your life. Bright, shiny objects are anything that compels you but is ultimately empty because it doesn’t enrich you. It might be the latest technology apps, fashion trends, ideas, or person du jour. If you find yourself distracted by shiny objects, it may be because you have difficulty making and enacting decisions that would help you experience yourself as authentic and your life as purposeful. Focus within, not outside yourself, to prioritize your choices.

When you practice skillful decision-making, endless options are no longer a distraction or a pull. Instead, you come to perceive options relative to your value-inspired goals and trust your ability to create options and make important decisions.

Practice bringing increased awareness to how you make decisions. Evaluate and learn from the decisions you make. Prioritize those decisions that are in line with your values and aspirations. Live simply, routinizing decisions that are a necessary part of everyday life. Don’t accumulate material things or experiences that require energy to sustain but don’t meaningfully add to your life. Be willing to take risks in your decision-making for the sake of what is most important to you.

Above all, choose wisely as to what you wish to bring into your life.

Be an active participant in the decisions that shape your life in a way that actually reflects what matters most to you. As a result, you will experience yourself as authentic, and your life as purposeful.

Do you know about Frequency??

Do you know about Frequency??

It has been shown that a normal healthy body has a frequency of 62–72 MHz. When the body drops below this frequency, we begin to get into illness and disease states. For example, if our frequency drops to 58 MHz, then we are likely to get a cold or flu.

Essential oils help to raise our frequency which can help with disease, balance our body, and help with emotions.

Having negative 👎 thoughts, eating processed foods, drinking coffee ☕️all can lower our frequency. But we are all human so therefore, using the pure therapeutic oil will help raise our frequency.

Pure therapeutic essential oils range in frequency from 52 to 580 MHz.
Idaho Blue Spruce can only be purchased through Young Living has a frequency of 580MHz .

I love my coffee so I apply Idaho Blue Spruce to my crown (on top of the head) daily!!! 

Give it a try!!!

6 Reasons Why Laughter Is the Best Medicine

Have you ever been in a tense or difficult situation when you suddenly burst into a fit of giggles? Or feel a release or rejuvenated after watching a side-splittingly funny movie?

It turns out there’s some scientific veracity behind the old adage “laughter is the best medicine.”

Laughter activates the body’s natural relaxation response. It’s like internal jogging, providing a good massage to all internal organs while also toning abdominal muscles,says Dr. Gulshan Sethi, head of cardiothoracic surgery at the Tucson Medical Center and faculty at the University of Arizona’s Center for Integrative Medicine.

Perhaps that’s why Deepak Chopra says the healthiest response to life is laughter.

Studies have found that laughter can have healing properties; and it’s contagious. Here are six reasons why you should start laughing today.

Laughter is Contagious

The discovery of mirror neurons—what causes you to smile when someone smiles at you—gives credence to the belief that laughter is contagious.

When you’re feeling down finding friends to laugh with can help your brain trigger its own laughter response and foster closeness, both of which contribute to your sense of well-being. Why do you think that sense of humor is such an important trait when looking for a partner? We like the feeling of shared laughter and our body wants as much of this feeling as possible.

Laughter Reduces the Stress Response

When you laugh there’s a contraction of muscles, which increases blood flow and oxygenation. This stimulates the heart and lungs and triggers the release of endorphins that help you to feel more relaxed both physically and emotionally.

Laughter Boosts Immunity

According to one study done at Indiana State School of nursing, mirthful laughter may increase natural killer cell levels, a type of white blood cell that attacks cancer cells.

Laughter Increases Resilience

Resilience is the ability to see failure as natural progression to success rather than as a negative outcome. People who are resilient are happier and more successful.

The ability to acknowledge mistakes without becoming angry or frustrated plays an important role in developing resilience. Laughing at mistakes allows us to recognize that making errors is a part of being human.

Laughter Combats Depression

Studies support laughter as a great way to get outside the downward spiral to depression. Being unhappy can become a pattern or mindset if we don’t step outside of ourselves occasionally. By being a witness to our situation rather than allowing ourselves to feel the victim we can find the humor in it and see with fresh eyes. Even forced laughter releases a cocktail of hormones, neuropeptides, and dopamine that can start to improve your mood.

Laughter Relieves Pain

People who are laughing don’t experience less pain, however they report being less bothered by the pain they do experience. It’s not about changing pain levels. The amount of pain remains the same, but your perceived pain levels reduce and your belief that you can cope increases. Laughter by itself isn’t the solution but it can help a person overcome discomfort.

Quick Hacks to Bring More Laughter Into Your Life

  • Make humour a priority by reading a funny book, watching a comedy, or listening to your favourite comedian.
  • Share laughter with friends. Spend more time with people who have fun.
  • Practice laughter yoga, which Dr. Sethi practices and teaches on occasion.
  • Remember that life is funny. The ability to laugh at yourself makes you attractive to others and can help relieve your own stress. Focus on finding the laughable moments in your day, and then tell a friend your funny story as a way to increase the power of laughter by sharing.
  • Know what isn’t funny. Laughing at the expense of others isn’t funny. Be discerning about your humor by laughing with—not at—people.
