Don’t solve your problems!

Standard

Problems should not be solved

Does that sound weird to you? You probably learned that you should solve problems. So did I. But i changed my thoughts about the “problem solving attitude”.  Solving problems never really worked well.  Okay, I solved some of them but you know what happens: after solving issue A issue B is knocking on your door, and so on.  A never ending problem circle. Do you recognise this? Think back about situations in your life and ask yourself if problems in your life are gone or still present…

Facing challenges

People are very creative, our mind is for sure! When we face challenges in life we start thinking about how to overcome them. We think about several strategies, most people do that. Our mind is working non stop. When thinking of solutions we also focus on the problem/situation itself and what might happen if there is no solution. For example: you face an empty or almost empty bank account. You start thinking what to do to fill it, because bills got to be paid etc.  So you need money asap. Your mind thinks about selling stuff, looking for a job, earning some pennies online, a loan, and so on… Meanwhile you realise you need a miracle. And then fear comes in: what if you will not be able to earn a single dollar… you won’t be able to pay the bills, you have no food on the table, you… (fill in the blank). You start feeling panic, fearfull thoughts arise, your heartbeat rises, you feel very bad! Some people will even start feeling depressed, not knowing what to do. Imagine what this does to your body and your mood!

What you focus on will grow bigger

So you focus on your issue, in our example the empty bank account, but it can be any kind of problem. You don’t feel good, because besides you try to solve the situation, you worry about the outcome. We all do if we act like this.  Your energy is low, your mood fearfull, down, angry, or you experience panic. You start feeling tired because of all the worries you experience. And you can’t stop thinking about them. Instead of taking a break your mind creates more fearful thoughts or weird solutions to “solve” your situation.  Your focus is on the problem, even when you focus on solutions. Solutions are part of the problem! And it grows bigger and bigger, that is what happens when we try to solve situations and problems. Or in other life experiences. It is a Universal Law: the more you focus on something, the more you think about it, the bigger it gets!

Rise above your problems!

Instead of thinking about your situations, issues, problems, etc. and what to do to “solve”  them simply rise above them! Stop putting energy in thoughts and feelings that make you feel bad, sad, fearfull, down, etc. You really don’t want these emotions and thoughts to grow! If you decide to rise above whatever situation you face in life you let it go, you free yourself and chose to feel good, whatever happens. This empties your mind, you will feel relieved even with the empty bank account from our example. Instead of focusing on what to do and being afraid you simply let it go. You refuse to let negative energy in your life, you refuse to feel bad, because those actions won’t help you at all! If you rise above your problems and chose to feel good whatever happens you might be surprised of what will happen.

In a positive state of mind you are open to receive!

Remember what you focus on will grow bigger. Think and feel positive and you will attract solutions for whatever situation on auto-pilot. That is the way the Universe works. You should never worry about situations in life, no matter how challenging they are. Refuse to be overwhelmed, refuse to be a victim of the circumstances. Take back your inner power, rise and rise and rise above all unwanted stuff in life, no matter how big or small the issue is. Step aside and focus on good feelings, take positive actions, accept the problems and situations in your life the way they are and try to learn from them. The Universe will respond in a positive way, believe me, all you need to do is trust in this Universal Law.

 

It takes time and exercise

It takes some exercise to become an expert in not to worry and stop being a problem solver, enjoy the experience, have patience and do your best. Go for it. Don’t be harsh to yourself if you fail. You can’t fail by the way, by being aware of your thoughts, emotions and moodswings,  you are doing a great job! When unwanted feelings, thoughts etc. enter your system simply take a step back, take a deep breath and focus on something completely different. Something that makes YOU feel good.

Your life will start changing for the better. You will experience pleasant surprises, unexpected positive things will come out of the blue! Miracles will happen. That’s what happens if you chose to rise above whatever problem, situation, challenge in life. Try it out, you have nothing to lose.  Start with small things and when you are succesfull take it to the next level. Maybe you have a partner or friend that wants to exercise with you, so you have support of someone like minded. Or share your experiences here on WP, share on Facebook, or your personal website.  Start journaling!

I wish you the best of luck. You can do it, I know you can! Let me know what you think, share your experiences with me in a comment. I love to hear from you!

Podcasting is part of my journey

Standard

Podcasting is one of my big passions in life!

I have a podcast since 5 years or so but these last few years I never uploaded anything. Why? I have no clue to be honest 😉 Just wasn’t interested? Well, I live in the present moment so I don’t go into a deep analysing state of mind!

Deforming existing sounds makes beautiful noise!

What I do is deforming existing sounds. My style is ambient with lots of surprises 😉

When I’m busy editing the sounds and music I’m in the flow. That same creative flow I feel when I’m writing.It makes me glow in the dark! It makes me so happy! So tonight I created a beautiful piece of audio and uploaded it to my podcast page on Podomatic. My intention is to upload much more on a regular base. I love doing it. Tonight I used my laptop, so my voice is present at the start and the end but the quality is not very good. I have a good mic on my PC so I might start creating from there!

It was so much fun to podcast tonight. It’s freshly published. If you like you can listen to it and/or download it for free:

My Podcast freshly published

Don’t forget to like it 😉

I love to hear your opinion dear friends!

Enjoy and I hope the energy will help you, because that is what my so-called “noise” does. Through the energy in the sounds you can experience lots of stuff. Just let it happen! Please share your experiences. I can’t wait to hear from you!

I hope you are all happy and enjoying your weekend!

Namaste and I promise I will blog more, got a lot of stuff to share 🙂

Cheers, Anja

Investing in succes

Standard

Having nothing in my bank account I really took a risk today 😉 I bought an internet course (a Dutch reliable one) that teaches about SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and how to make a tiny website a goldmine. I paid for it with my PayPal account, because there I have some money, I got a great discount as well, 20 euro’s, that is wonderful!

Let’s be honest, freebies are nice, but if you want to  build a business, or in other words: starting to make money online, you need to invest. Not too much and definitely not into scamming sites that yell at you can make 10.000 dollars a month doing nothing…

Doing nothing will result in nothing, point…

Investing isn’t only about putting (a small amount off) money in your project, it’s also about putting energy in it, and dedication! I realise I need to work and I’m very motivated. I have a great feeling about this.

Success

I already can share a great success, one of the subjects in this course is picking the right domain name to make sure you will rank high in big brother Google… I found one, a Dutch domain name with a .com extension (very important!) and 14.800 people searching for this exact words in Google every month! I bought the domain, it’s empty now, I first need to learn more, but wow, a potential of almost 15 thousand (!) people searching for it…

I’ll let you know when the site is online and working, it will be in Dutch, but to give you an impression hehehe….

useful secret to benefit from

The risk I took is low, I have money back guarantee and this guy that sells the course I bought is reliable (I researched him!). The course contains e-books and video’s, the first one is promising already. I reveal a secret that is very valuable to me: you need to research your niche at google ad words first, then find search terms that put traffic to your site (at least 1000 searches a month) and the very most important tip: take over the exact search terms and try if there is a domain name free for you… Just as I did today… don’t think you can make a better domain name, just don’t, take over the search terms exactly, and up you go… register it… a domain name is not expensive!

I will give more tips and tricks as I progress on my course! This is the true Law of Attraction… I am focussing on making money, and here the opportunities come… And the success… But you need to invest a little bit, and I feel blessed I have PayPal, I earned some money online with paid to click programs and they paid me via PayPal. I’m grateful now I did, it won’t make you rich but at least I was able to buy my course… this is spending money that won’t “hurt” so much! Even if it turns out to be a scam (which is not the case for me).

Be carefull though, lots of scams circle around on the world-wide web… if it sounds too good to be true it probably is… calculate what your income would be if you earn 1% of what the advertiser offers, if that sounds like a wonderful way to make extra income then go for it…. Check them out, via google or your social network, etc.

Getting some help for peace of mind

So far for now, tomorrow I have an appointment with a social worker at the dept relief department… might sound weird but I need peace of mind, bills are so high and money overnight is not an option, residual income is, but that is no solution for my situation right now. So for peace of my mind, I go see a counselor and I hope and pray and intent that help is there… it is… I will keep you updated… I hope to reach peace of mind and soul so I can continue working on reaching success!

And who knows, all is possible… i believe in my unlimited possibilities, and I might “fire”  my bailiffs and even give them a huge tip 😉

Untill so far, I love this personal journal like writing… Thanks for reading and if you have a tip or any advice for me I’d love to hear from you. I value your opinion!

Untill next time! 🙂

It starts with baby steps to become great!

Standard

A lot of us, myself included, want to manifest BIG things. We want money, a great car, a beautiful house, or just feeling the freedom, being abundant, etc.

That is my goal, being totally 100% independent, abundant, free, feeling the positive strong vibes all the time and not only a few days a month 🙂

Lots of things have already changed since I started blogging here only 2 weeks ago! It feels like I’ve been here for much longer but it’s really only 2 weeks! Amazing!

So what did change? At first my mindset, my focus. I was driving myself nuts worrying about bills unable to pay for, etc. I was focussing on them too much. Not anymore. They are still there, I’m aware of that, but I changed my focus. It’s that simple. Being worried about them won’t change much and make it worse: the Law of Attraction… My focus is now on wealth, abundance, freedom… and this changed my energy. I feel so much stronger, unbelievable! But true! If it were different I would post a blog about it.

I refuse to be frustrated!

The process of Manifesting won’t be instant, there are exceptions, of course, but let’s be honest: if it were so easy the entire World would be instant millionaire 🙂 It would be so wonderful if every human being on Earth could live in wealth, we all deserve it right!

The big mistake I made, and you probably too 😉 is that we forget about the “small” gifts the Universe offers us every second! Now I ask you to sit down, leave my blog post for a few seconds and look around you… what is it you see?Just After that return over here 😀

What did you see?

Your tv? Your laptop/PC? Your cosy couch? Other furniture? Your dog/cat loving you to eternity? Did you realise that because there is such thing as electricity you can be here right now… And did you spot the fact that water is flowing through the tap? YOU manifested this…. I did too… Did you enjoy you coffee today (or tea?) , I certainly did! And once again: YOU manifested this.

Now I will give you a challenge: intent to manifest something small today or tomorrow, something you already know you can make it… like a cup of coffee, a fresh salad, a walk through the park, reading a few chapters of a book, or…. whatever it is, but make sure it is something you really can do. Be nice to yourself. Don’t set your goal too high!

State out loud (or if you’re shy: write down or whisper): Today I create…. (up to you what it is as long as you’re convinced it is something easy)

Once your intention is manifested enjoy the present moment! Applaud yourself, give yourself a huge compliment, wow… you DID it…

One step at a time

Don’t ask too much of yourself, be gentle with yourself, patient, loving… If you can manifest a cup of coffee try manifesting something a little bit more difficult but still within reach…like enjoying a cheese pancake with friends 😉 Also within reach. Don’t run too fast. You are a student, when you went to highschool I’m sure you didn’t graduate the day after joining… The same counts, in my humble opinion, for the University of the Law of Attraction…

What you focus on will grow. I just read a great article of my follower James, see his article here:

http://beyondthecall.wordpress.com/2012/01/31/get-the-message/

And commented 😉

It takes baby steps, once you master these baby steps you can go further and take a bigger challenge… one step at a time. Be patient with yourself.Allowe yourself TIME… let go off the pressure… it’s not a competition, it’s you walking YOUR path… it’s your journey. I share mine here…

Thanks for reading, I loved the writing, it’s my passion I can tell you that!

Great visualisation tool

Standard

The worldwide web is full of goodies to support you in manifesting the life you want. Like this one, the Secret to You…

In order to attract what you want in life visualisation is a very important part of the manifesting process. The makers of the famous book ‘The Secret’ created a free YouTube to help you on your way. It’s a visualisation tool, use it at least once a day, and watch the positive changes enter your life by miracle! Best of all: it only takes a couple of minutes of your time, so no more excuses you haven’t got the time to do this 😉

I’m in love with it and decided to share it with you. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do! And more important: that it will help you achieving your dreams, goals, etc.

The attitude of gratitude

Standard

One of the things I love about the Universal principle that you can attract all you want in life with a grateful attitude.

No matter what your situation is in life, there is always something (and often much more) to be grateful for.

You might already be rich (share your tips please 😀 ), or a little bit less rich, like the average people, or you situation might be a little bit like my own, having hard times and experiencing struggles, etc. or… there are thousands of different situations, millions maybe. Every situation is unique! Especially if you experience lacks in life, no matter if that’s financial, romantic, health issues, or whatever plays part in your life, it’s very important to look at what you do have in life instead of focussing on what you don’t have.

A grateful mindset is a true blessing. If you focus on all the great things that are present in your life you will start to attract more great things. It is really that simple. Go and try it out. What are you grateful for? Write it down in your journal, do it every day! Welcome all the small and big gifts the Universe offers you. Feel joy for all the good things in your life.

I am for example grateful to live in a wonderful house, to have great pets, to meet beautiful people, to be able to write this blog and inspire other people, to be able to walk, talk, enjoy things…

It starts with the small things, we often forget this. Maybe you find a dime on the street… feel joy if that occurs! Or it might be someone who smiles at you. Or makes you feel happy!

Embrace your life, exclude nothing. If you can master being grateful for all things that make you feel good you’ll create a different mindset and you will start attracting… It starts with thoughts, feelings and actions. Whenever a negative thought of lack in your life pops up, switch to a thought of gratitude. Make a large list of all the things in your life and re-read it as often as you can. Small miracles might occur, because you’re worth it, we all are…

The attitude of gratitude is a great tool on your way to living a happier life, attracting more of what you really want, to feel better and to feel connected to all other human beings. I’m grateful that you took the time to read my post, thank you so much!

The wallet process

Standard

I love to google, twitter, read blogs, etc. about attracting money and wealth. Today I found a very interesting blog post offering a simple process to create an abundant mindset called “the wallet process”.

In this blog post the author, Keith Cook, advises to obtain a 100 dollar bill and keep it on your person at all times. Plus you need to remind yourself often that it’s there. Whenever you walk through the mall or shopping street think of all the stuff you could buy with 100 dollar. Clothes, a nice dinner, or whatever you’d love to buy.

The feeling you have the money already changes your mindset! Your changed vibration will start to attract more money. Keith writes this about it:

if you were to remember your hundred dollars and spend it on the first thing that you notice, you gain the benefit of really feeling your financial well-being only once. But if you mentally spent that hundred dollars 40 or 50 times that day, you gain the feeling advantage of having spent 4 or 5 thousand dollars.

I find this theory very interesting, I’ve never tried it, 100 dollar or in my case 100 euro is a lot of money to me! Still I want to try it! And I think I know a way to do it as I own a credit card 😉 I can obtain that 100 euro bill, just to give it a try, to get into the vibration of abundance, wealth, to empower myself. It could even be fun!

Have you ever tried this? I’d love to hear experiences from people! I’ll keep you posted of my own with the wallet process. It’s an exciting idea! Don’t you think so? I definitely do!
