The Strength to Rise after a Fall

It is not how many times we fall that matters, but rather, how many times we get back up again.

Sometimes it’s a quiet voice at the end of the day saying,
I’ll do more again tomorrow.”

The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”

Persistance

determined

“Remember to follow your heart and go after your dream! There will be people in your life that will tell you that you’re wasting your time. Ignore them. There are things that will happen that will catch you on the blind side and drop you to your knees. Pull yourself together and move past them. Above all, don’t take it personally. It’s called life.

Life is full of disappointments, failures and setbacks. None of those things can permanently stop you. You have the power in you to overcome anything that life throws at you. There is nothing as powerful as a made up mind. Surround yourself with people who remind you that you matter, and support you in the ways that matter most to you. No person, situation, or circumstance can define who you are. Don’t give up, cave in, or stop believing that it’s possible…”

Marilyn Toida

Trust in the Goodness of Life

Lucian Freud. Fine Art. Woman with Eyes closed, 2002.

Trust in the goodness of life. No one event, circumstance, job, or relationship has the power to define who you are, or who you are yet to become. You are stronger than you know. See yourself beyond this situation, moving past this moment and coming out ahead.

Refuse to give in to darkness. You will feel better in time. Believe in your ability to make good things happen again for you. Broaden your thinking. Strengthen your faith. Keep pushing forward, and claim your new destiny.

Gratitude for a New Day

Be grateful for each new day

“If the only prayer you say in your life is ‘thank you,’ that would suffice.”

– Meister Eckhart

Gratitude for a New Day

What is Gratitude? Gratitude is a feeling of thankfulness for the things that you have, the health that you’ve got as well as all the intangible aspects of yourself that you have been freely given. Gratitude notices when life bestows upon us the things that we require to make it through the day, the week, the month.

Upon noticing that these things have flowed into our lives, a grateful man or woman gives thanks for those things. A grateful man or woman is continuously aware of how much he or she has been given. When an individual focuses is on what is good and abundant in their life, more is added to them. When an individual focuses on lack and struggle, that is what they get more of. So training yourself to focus on abundance and being grateful for all of the small mercies of life helps to bring more abundance and greater gifts to you.

Showing gratitude helps to strengthen your relationships with others. It improves your health by reducing your stress, because you’re no longer focusing on what you don’t have and you’re now focusing on what you do have. Plus, it makes you more resilient and able to bounce back faster when life’s knocks get in the way.

How I Overcame Severe Depression by Keeping a Gratitude Diary

Many years ago when I was in my twenties, a relationship that I was in collapsed and my whole world fell apart. I could hardly get out of bed, I was so devastated by it all. The only thing that saved me was what I believe to have been God talking into my mind pleading with me to help myself. I would wake in the morning and lie in bed, dreading the day ahead of me and the thought of dragging myself through it.

Quite audibly I would hear a voice say to me, “Get up and go and write down all the things that you have to be grateful for!” If I didn’t move, if I continued to lie there, the voice would say it again. Only each time I heard it, the voice would be louder. I would hear that same command again and again. It would occur repeatedly until I got up and went to my desk and began writing.

Your List Will Get Longer and Longer

At first my list of things that I was grateful for was about 25 items long. It included my eyes, my ears, my feet and legs that got me around. Also, my hands, my ability to communicate, my intelligence and my health. The list got longer and longer each and every day. By the end of six weeks it was about three A4 pages long, both front and back.

Eventually, the list included things from my past that I’d never really thought to say thank you for. I even became grateful for the things that I had learned from the relationship that had just ended. Despite the pain of it all. Over the course of six weeks I went from severely depressed to fully recovered. All done without the use of anti-depressants, drugs or alcohol. Being grateful healed me.

So, whenever you find yourself feeling down and out, get out a pen and paper and start writing down all the things that you know you need to be grateful for. It will turn your life around, trust me.

The Great Awakening

transformation-of-man

A great awakening is happening throughout humanity this last 50 years. Millions of people are waking up to the fact that we are not just our physical bodies: we are a spiritual being having a human experience. From the early 1940s onwards, a group of souls incarnated on this planet to help rescue the world from where it was headed. Those souls were the predecessors to the Indigo Children. They were literally the soul parents of the children who would later crowd into the planet in a great wave of births in the seventies and eighties. The children born at that time came to push back against the suppression of those whose agenda it was to enslave us all. They were souls who knew that they didn’t answer to anyone, and that the people who were in power on earth did not have authority over them and their lives. Those souls knew that they were sovereign and answered to no man who sought to oppress them… they only answered to their Maker, to themselves, and as long as they harmed nobody, to no-one else.
