Another Year Starts, Last Year Departs

Yes! It’s my birthday today. I’m 24. I’ve been 24 for a while. I haven’t aged since reaching 24. 24 seems to be my magic number. Actually, it isn’t, it’s 4, or maybe 7… and some people say I haven’t aged since reaching either of those years. But hey! Age is just a number, right? If I’m not bothered how old I am, I really think nobody else should be either.

Last year was a bit of a shocker, wasn’t it? Hopefully, this year, things will get better.

One important thing we must take from this is that the years themselves shouldn’t matter… but the days within those years should. Each great day after the next should build up to a fantastic year of memories and experiences. Even if we can’t do anything, go anywhere, see anyone, we can still do things for ourselves within those limitations.

Imagination is key to this… and with imagination absolutely anything is possible. My imagination takes me to places even I couldn’t have dreamed of. So there in itself is proof that out of nothing anything can emerge.

Imagine a year of fabulous anythings. 365 fabulous anythings. 365 ways to Feel Good every single day. Broken down like that, it isn’t such a big task either.

So what if I’m 24 again?! Each new year starts every day anyway, so if we just stop counting and start doing, our time on this planet will be filled with greatness. And imagine that!

Ask your Inner 4-year-old… your Inner 7-year-old… your Inner 24-year-old what would they like to do… and do it! Have fun.

Bring light and laughter into your world, and watch it spread all around. See faces lighten up. Smiles broaden. Even if only through your own mind’s eye, your positivity will alter the Universe permanently.

A brighter today. A better tomorrow – when the new year starts again.

Happy New Year!

Friday Thoughts

Friday Thoughts

It’s been another relaxing week here at the Mansion, and outside in the Wider World. The weather’s been warmish, although, apparently, it is expected to become scorching over the next few days. I don’t mind the sunshine, but I’m not too keen when it becomes too hot.

Especially at night. Hot, sticky nights, where sleep is elusive, and tossing and turning takes on a life of its own. I’m sure it should be introduced into the next Olympics: synchronised tossing and turning; timed tossing and turning; and tossing and turning to music.

For the past few weeks, I’ve been listening to a variety of pieces of music containing binaural beats. These beats and associated theta waves have a way of programming the mind, or rather reprogramming it. They are available in lots of different flavours too! You can turn your eyes blue, if you so desire. Or you can lose weight, become better looking, become more confident, become more creative. I’m sure there are beats available for just about any aspect of life.

I class these as being Metaphysical, in much the same way I class the Universal Law of Attraction and Cosmic Ordering. We have to put something in to get something out: and that something is belief. If we believe it will happen, it will happen.

The brain uses electrical impulses to work, and these beats externally send impulses to the brain through the ears. The thing is, if they work, great. If they don’t work, the music is so relaxing the body and mind is getting the much deserved rest and relaxation it needs.

Since I started losing weight, one thing about me has changed. I have started to take more of an interest in my appearance. For years, I wasn’t bothered how I looked; I was just me and that was that. But now, I’m opening my own book of vanity! I can’t say with confidence I’m 100 per cent vain, but I’m certainly a lot more vain than I once was.

I pluck eyebrows. Only the mile long ones, you understand, the rest can remain unplucked. I have cheekbones. Visible, defined cheekbones which are accented when I smile. I have dimples when I smile. I love smiling now. No longer do I look like my chin is (chins are) dragging along the floor. And I can see definition starting to appear in my jawline. Once the remaining chins have disappeared, I’m sure my chin and jaw will be the stuff of legend!

I’m back in work again, but only in the mornings for now, so that takes some of the stress surrounding that pesky virus away. I’m also in an office on my own, which makes it easier as well. The afternoons give me plenty of hours to rest and relax, although thinking about it, over the next few days the afternoons may be spent catching up with the sleep I missed whilst training for the Olympics at night.

I must check if there’s a binaural track for reducing bags under the eyes. It may be needed if the bags clash with the cheekbones.

I have a bit to do this afternoon, and then I must get back to catching up with some of the blogs I’m missing. I dip into the reader occasionally, and read what’s there, but not everyone is in the reader at that time, hence I’ve missed quite a few.

It’s funny how quickly more time turns into less time. I must claw back some of that time, otherwise I’ll always be trying to catch up.

But, it’s Friday! The weekend! Which is always good!

Feel Good now!

Universal Magic

The Universe listens. The Universe delivers. The Universe complies.

We tap into that power with our thoughts and feelings. We draw everything from that Universal Magic whether we’re conscious of it or not. Most of the time we don’t even notice what the Universe is doing for us, but behind the scenes the Universe is working very hard for us.

We notice coincidences. That’s the Universe’s doing. We’re ‘moved’ to be in the right place at the right time to see the coincidence. If we notice it, that is. The more coincidences we look for the more we see, only we have to be aware otherwise the moment will pass us by.

That awareness is key.

Just by opening up a little, becoming more aware of what is happening around us amplifies the Universal Magic.

Our Universe doesn’t need to be everything in all of existence, although it could be if we wanted it to. Our Universe could be the town where we live, the building we live in, the chair we set in, or even each breath we take in. Just focus on what coincidence you would like to see, and then wait – maybe for not too long – for the Universe to bring it to you.

Sometimes the Universe is subtle. And sometimes the Universe delivers a jaw-dropping whoa! moment. Both delivery methods are fun.

Well, it is magic!
