Day 4 – Unleash your Inner Money Babe Challenge

I’ve done these lists before so no great revelations today although this list is rather more extensive so a little more insightful.

Task:  Write a list of 25 things you’re grateful for

I usually only write 3-5 things I’m grateful for in one sitting because… well, quite frankly I run out of things to be grateful for! Stretching my gratitude list to 25 items was indeed – a stretch but I have things on my list that I’d completely forgotten about or taken for granted. I’d highly recommend this task:

Bonus:

Over the last 24 hours I’ve been called an ‘inspiration’ three times – yesterday by a client, then by my husband for working my butt off at home and today by a work friend. Funny thing is, I never thought anyone out of the 7 billion people on the planet would ever use that word to describe me.

The biggest bonus today however is that on my way home from work my husband called me and told me he’s been offered a job and starts on Monday!!! WOO HOO! Now this may not be a big deal to some but he’s been out of work for 4 months… so this is massive news for us. It’s a 6 week contract but that’s all good cos good things are coming our way.!

 

Day 3 – Unleash Your Inner Money Babe challenge

Thank god Day 3 is easier than Day 2!!!!

Task: To list the 5 feelings you’ll have when you manifest what you want at the end of the challenge.

Mine are simple:

  • Excited
  • Powerful
  • Strong
  • High – as in buzzing!
  • Unstoppable (I’ve worked out how to make my mind work for me)

I feel really good today and I don’t know if it’s a coincidence or not but this is literally the most productive I have been in years. I feel the high vibes from the ‘manifestation babes’ Facebook group and the level of love in that group is leaving me buzzing.

On a side note, I’m seeing synchronization everywhere!!!  14:14 15.55, 11:11, 16:16 – I’m taking this as a sign from the universe that I’m on the right track.  WOOOO HOOOO!!!!!!!!!

Why minding your own business is good for your health

We’ve recently come across the work of author Byron Katie who shares this remarkably simple yet effective tool on how to be free of anxiety and tension. It’s so simple you’ll be wondering why you haven’t been doing it all this time!

 We’ll leave Katie (as everyone calls her) to explain it in her own words:

 “I can find only three kinds of business in the universe:

 1. Mine

2. Yours

3. Gods  (anything that’s out of my control, your control and everyone else’s control – that’s God’s business).

Much of our stress comes from mentally living out of our own business. When I think, “You need to get a job, I want you to be happy, you should be on time, you need to take better care of yourself” – I am in your business.

When I’m worried about earthquakes, floods, war, or when I will die – I am in God’s business.

 If I am mentally in your business or in God’s business, the effect is separation.

 If you are living your life and I am mentally living your life, who is here living mine? We’re both over there. Being mentally in your business keeps me from being present in my own. I am separate from myself,  wondering why my life doesn’t work.

To think that I know what’s best for anyone else is to be out of my business. Even in the name of love, it is pure arrogance, and the result is tension, anxiety and fear. Do I know what’s right for me? That is my only business. Let me work with that before I try to solve your problems for you.

If you understand the three kinds of business enough to stay in your own business, it could free your life in a way that you can’t even imagine.

 The next time you’re feeling stress or discomfort, ask yourself whose business you’re mentally in, and you may burst out laughing! The question can bring you back to yourself. And you may come to see that you’ve never really been present, that you’ve mentally been living in other people’s.

The time for change has come (no really, I’m serious this time).

Ok, I’m just going to put it out there. Yes, I’ve been here before.

This is clearly not the first time I’ve vowed to turn my life around, to reach my full potential, to exercise that belly fat away, to stop eating crap, to meditate… yeah, you get the picture. Nope, definitely not the first time I’ve been here.

So what’s so different about now I hear you ask?

Well, during my little break away from blogging I’ve managed to set up and run a pretty successful little Hypnotherapy Practice in Harley Street. (I know, I can be impressive at times).

I was updating my website today and adding my most recent reviews and it just dawned on me. Holy shit! I’ve actually helped people change their lives. I mean really change their lives! You should hear some of the pretty cool stuff these people (who are not related to me or paid by me) are saying about me!

Not only that. I had helped most of these people turn their lives around by spending just 90 minutes with them! I shit you not.

I realised today. I have the ‘power’. I know change can happen. I’ve seen it happen. I’ve made it happen – for others. So why the hell aren’t I doing it for myself?

The problem with me (well, one of many) is that I’ve spent my whole life preparing, getting ready – to change. I am a self-help book junkie. I’m literally reading 3 books at a time because I don’t find the answer/ the secret in the first few pages so I get impatient and I’m onto the next book… searching, always searching for that elusive key to unlocking the big mystery on HOW to change my life.

But I know what the secret is. I have the answer (more of that later).

I’ve made a promise to myself today. Today is the day for change.

As I sit here at 1am writing this blog, eating the last Wispa bar in the house with my Green Tea and Ribena… I know that I am FULLY fed up of being me. Of making bullshit promises to myself. Of telling myself “tomorrow I’ll stop/ start”.  Sick. To. Death. Of. It.

I’ve had this uneasy feeling all day. I know that today is the last day for a long while that I’m going to let myself be so disrespectful to myself. So I’ve literally eaten every piece of chocolate in the house (full disclosure: 2 Wispa Bars and 1 chocolate mini roll). I’ve sat here and watched shit on TV all day, like a slob, with my laptop resting on my round inflamed belly. Because this is the last day I’m doing this to myself. For real.

WHY?

Through my work with clients I’ve realised that the most important part of change is having a good enough WHY. If you don’t know why you’re doing it or you’re why isn’t good enough – you may as well sit back down and continue bullshitting yourself. Your WHY has to be strong enough to get you off your arse and moving. To stay motivated. To fight against the old you.

So here’s my WHY:

1. I’m 39 years old and I basically have possibly 3-4 more summers where I could legit get away with wearing a crop top (just once please God). Other than my bloated/fat belly, I’m pretty slim everywhere else. My parents good genes mean I still get mistaken for being in my late 20’s. This isn’t a pipe dream people. I could do it. J-LO rocks it so why the hell not eh?

2. I want to have kids (yeah, I know it’s a little late in the day but Amal Clooney is my age and she’s having twins!). I want a healthy happy baby but bearing in mind my crop top dreams, I gotta get fit so I can bounce back with ease (just like a celeb. LOL)

3. I’m going to a friends wedding at the end of May in France. I want to be at my best (or close to my best). I have time to make a dent and rock a Sophia Vergara style dress. When will I ever have the opportunity to do this again? I want to seize it. To enjoy the moment and enjoy being me.

4. I want to prove to myself what I believe in so strongly. That if you change your thoughts, you can quite literally change your world. I know I have the ‘power’, I’ve seen it working… it’s time to stop studying and time to start doing.

I’ll be back to talk more about HOW I’m going to achieve my WHY shortly… but for now, I need to eat my dinner (yeah, I know it’s 1am – I told you today was my last day of bad habits) and get me to bed for my 7am start.

Hold me accountable people. Seriously. Call me up on bullshit. I need you… and if your time has come. Join me for the ride… good things are heading our way.

If you could change your life in 90 minutes, would you?

In as little as 90 minutes we can help you overcome life long blocks that have been holding you back.

Our client last week attended with a range of issues which included wanting to be more productive, weight control and feeling better about herself.

Within days she is already feeling the benefits of the session and these feelings will continue to grow.

Book your session today! Appointments available via Skype or at Harley Street.

11:11 -Happy Singles Day

Happy singles day!

China have got it right with their consumer holiday ‘Singles Day’ – the world’s biggest online shopping day of the year.

Held on 11 November each year and known in China as “bare sticks holiday”, because of how it looks numerically, Singles Day began as an anti-Valentine’s Day in the 1990s when students started celebrating their singledom.

Love the idea of having an official day to celebrate being single … and discounted shopping always helps! 😆

Priyanka Chopra’s advice on following your dreams

In her first article for LinkedIn, actress Priyanka Chopra talks of the battle within herself to follow her dreams. She describes her thinking process from winning Miss World in 2000 to leaving Bollywood for Hollywood and becoming the first Indian lead of an American TV show.

Priyanka’s secret to success is simple. Throughout her 16 year career, she has always asked herself “what do YOU want?”.

“We all make plans for our lives but most often are too scared or embarrassed about our ambitions to go after it wholeheartedly. And that’s where it all falls apart”

Why wait ’til 1st January to change?

010118

 

It’s official, the year is coming to a end… the Christmas adverts have already started appearing on tv, stores have started stocking everything Christmas related and it’s freezing cold outside! Yep, there’s no escaping the fact that 2016 is on its way out.

This time of year can often be a depressing. You look back over the last 11 months and realise you didn’t accomplish a number of the goals you set out. You’re a year older and you’re heading towards another year of possibly much of the sameness.

No doubt once you’ve digested your Christmas dinner and tired of playing with your new gifts, you’ll start to wonder what lies ahead of you in the coming year.

Will you finally shift those extra pounds?

Will you quit smoking?

Will you be more proactive?

Will you be more confident?

Will you finally overcome your anxiety?

Will you stop procrastinating and start achieving some of your goals?

January 1st is an important date. It signifies all things new. A new year, a new start and a new you! But why wait until January?

Why not start working on these goals now? Imagine if you’re already on your way to losing weight or have quit smoking? You can head towards the new year with a confidence you’ve not had before. A confidence of knowing that this time you’re going to make it because you’ve ahead of the game.

For November only, we’re offering 50% off Skype Hypnotherapy. So wherever you are in the world, you can have a one to one session with a Harley Street Hypnotherapist from the comfort of your own home.

Sessions are booking up fast so call us FREE on 0800 246 1017 to book yours today.

Daily motivation: trade your expectations for appreciation

quotescover-jpg-40

A simple life hack to being happier is to trade your expectations for appreciation. When you expect nothing, you can’t be disappointed. View every encounter with gratitude.

If someone turns up late to meet you, rather than being upset that they’re late. Be grateful that they made it!
