"When We Get our Glow ON, we CAN Light UP our world!" ~ Bets

Affirmations for Common Excuses, from Dr Wayne Dyer.

I’m a big fan of Dr Wayne Dyer. “Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into.”  Isn't that great to know? :)

In his book, Excuses Begone! How to Change Lifelong, Self-Defeating Thinking Habits, he gives us these positive Affirmations for the 18 Most Commonly Used Excuses we use to prevent ourselves from following our bliss:

1. It will be difficult: I have the ability to accomplish any task I set my mind to with ease and comfort.

2. It’s going to be risky: Being myself involves no risks. It is my ultimate truth, and I live it fearlessly.

3. It will take a long time: I have infinite patience when it comes to fulfilling my destiny.

4. There will be family drama: I would rather be loathed for who I am than loved for who I am not.

5. I don’t deserve it: I am a Divine creation, a piece of God. Therefore, I cannot be undeserving.

6. It’s not my nature: My essential nature is perfect and faultless. It is to this nature that I return.

7. I can’t afford it: I am connected to an unlimited source of abundance.

8. No one will help me: The right circumstances and the right people are already here and will show up on time.

9. It has never happened before: I am willing to attract all that I desire, beginning here and now.

10. I’m not strong enough: I have access to unlimited assistance. My strength comes from my connection to my Source of being.

11. I’m not smart enough: I am a creation of the Divine mind; all is perfect, and I am a genius in my own right.

12. I’m too old (or not old enough): I am an infinite being. The age of my body has no bearing on what I do or who I am.

13. The rules won’t let me: I live my life according to Divine rules.

14. It’s too big: I think only about what I can do now. By thinking small, I accomplish great things.

15. I don’t have the energy: I feel passionately about my life, and this passion fills me with excitement and energy.

16. It’s my personal family history: I live in the present moment by being grateful for all of my life experiences as a child.

17. I’m too busy: As I unclutter my life, I free myself to answer the callings of my soul.

18. I’m too scared: I can accomplish anything I put my mind to, because I know that I am never alone.

"Tune into" your Abundance by consciously affirming the positive, and Get Your Glow On :)

Are You Doing What's 'Right' for You?

I have a friend who is constantly running herself ragged with ‘obligations’.
She's a powerful businesswoman who works long, demanding hours and doesn’t have much personal time.

The amount of responsibility she’s taken on at the office, outside of her job requirements is quite astounding.

And she spends her ‘free’ time rushing from arrangement to arrangement – friends’ children’s birthday parties, engagement parties, christenings, kitchen teas and all the rest.
She’s a stalwart. Always turns up on time, and with a beautiful present that she’s chosen and wrapped herself.

Recently we were both invited to the same wedding.
It was on a farm in the country, two hours away from Cape Town.

Going to the wedding would be an overnight affair.
It sounded like fun, but I wasn’t sure that I wanted to be away for the weekend.
I couldn’t understand why she wanted to go at all.

The groom was her ex-boyfriend. 
He’d left her broken-hearted, to return to his childhood sweetheart whom he was now about to marry.
My friend and the groom had remained close friends and he was insistent that she come to his wedding.
She had hugely mixed feelings about being there, as it was emotionally very hard for her.

She told me she had to “be there for him”, as it was “the right thing to do”.
“The right thing for Who?”, I asked her.

We all have obligations that we need to attend to, but sometimes you have to ask yourself if ‘doing the right thing’ really is the ‘Right Thing’ for You.

Keep Glowing :), While Others Get Their Moan On

We all have them in our lives. People who just can’t wait to Get Their Moan On.
It’s exhausting, draining and worst of all, contagious!

Contagious Negativity.
I can feel it physically happening to me when I’m around negative people.
I can feel the good energy draining right out of me.
Often it becomes so bad that I’ll develop an aversion to being in their company, and make excuse after excuse not to be around them.

Because as sunny as I am, they’ll keep pissing over everything, with their carping, criticising, complaining and self-misery.

Sometimes you can’t avoid having to interact with negative people.
But you can avoid Mood Infection’

The best way to keep Your Glow On, is to keep affirming to yourself inwardly, all you that know in your deepest self to be true.

Wish them a GOOD Day.
And then get away from them as quickly as possible :)

“Never sacrifice your inner integrity to anyone, anytime, anywhere. How true are you to yourself? That is the degree of your contentment.” ~ Vernon Howard

How can you see, if you're not looking?

I live in a flat overlooking the sea. Every time I see whales or dolphins I get so excited. It's wonderful to watch them leaping and swimming by.
When I first moved in here I was chatting to one of the long-time residents who said she'd never seen them.
I told her I'd let her know when I spotted them again.
The next few times I saw them, I rang to tell her and she was delighted.

When I run along the promenade and I see them, I tell all the people I pass to have a look.
No-one walking along the seafront ever sees them, until I point them out.
Then they all get so excited, and stop to watch.

The other day I bumped into the woman from downstairs, as we were both walking out of the building.
"Did you see the whales this morning?",
I asked. 
"There are at least five of them in the bay, right up close to the shore."
"No", she said, sounding disappointed. "You didn't phone me".
"But I thought you would have seen them".
"They've been here for the last few days".
"I haven't been looking", she answered.
"Well, they're right in front of you. Look now",
I said, as we walked outside.

And then she saw them, and got so excited she started pointing them out to other residents who were coming in.
People who live right at the sea and hadn't seen the whales and dolphins who regularly come into the bay.
Because they weren't looking.
“Look and you will find it - what is unsought will go undetected.” ~ Sophocles
If you keep looking for what you want to see, you'll see it  ☺
