Mindfulness - Good Energy & New Intentions

Good energy and new intentions... 

Yes, this is the way, but each and every day. I talk here of mindfulness (and this is key to happiness and manifestation). 

Every day I set the tone for my day. I start with positive and powerful affirmations, followed by my gratitude list and my own way of journaling. Sometimes this is just writing and sometimes a more artistic expression. Some days it's as easy as a list of my thoughts, feelings, and emotions. I go with the flow! 

I sometimes find it hard to tune into how I am actually feeling though. Anyone else? I often think of new and different ways to tune into this flow, for example, I sometimes imagine what colour(s) I would be. I sometimes visualise myself as an object, or as a sound or a scent and so on. I then follow this energy. For example, if I see myself as a sponge, I then work out the energy within that - do I need to do extra energy protection right now for example? Or am I absorbing the lower energy of others (in that I am absorbing their lower emotional baggage for example)? Either way, I get in touch with myself daily to deepen myself and go further into my own spiritual development. 

For the fresh energy here as we go forth, rising from the ashes into 2024, I would like to share some of my mindfulness tips and techniques. I hope you find some of them useful and give them a whirl. 

  1. Balance the mind. Imagine a pair of scales in your mind. Imagine that this pair of scales represents your mind. One side logic; one side intuition. Visualise the scales in your mind as perfectly balanced. Both your mind and your emotions must be well-balanced and functioning optimally for you to achieve the happiness, health, and success you really want. By planting this balanced image in your mind, and returning to it when you need to, you can stay focused on what you want to create and make of yourself.
  2. Feed your mind – give it positive brain food. Close your eyes and imagine the top of your head opening up, and then imagine a jug (or similar item of your choice) pouring positive words into your mind. See them falling into your mind. Close your mind and feel these words being absorbed, just as our food is absorbed into our bodies. In your mind’s eye, see these words flowing around your body and being absorbed into your bloodstream. Select words that are relevant to you. For example, if you feel low on energy, perhaps you will pour words such as energy, vibrance, vigour, fizz, sparkle, shine, excitement and so on, into your mind.
  3. Flowing thoughts: allow thoughts to come and go. This is a personal favourite. Find a quiet place (I do this when I am early for the school pick up and am sitting waiting in my car) and close your eyes. See what thoughts and images come into your head. Let them come and go. It’s interesting to observe the kinds of thoughts and images that pop up – they usually have great relevance.

Mindfulness is an approach that is about paying attention, on purpose, in a non-judgemental way. It’s a practice that is scientifically proven to calm down your mind and slow down habitual thinking patterns, those that often lead to insecure, negative thoughts or contribute to a lack of confidence and low self-esteem.

Mindfulness is a practice in loving yourself. Allow yourself to settle into whatever arises for you in this process. When your mind wanders ‘off track’ and you don’t stick to something, that is perfectly fine. As soon as you notice that you’ve wandered from the path, you are present and can invite yourself to start it up again. It really is a process, and much like the way someone catches the words coming out of their mouth and thinks about them before speaking, mindfulness follows a similar pattern. You work to catch your mind from wandering off, and you bring it back on track. This takes time, so be kind to yourself and enjoy the process.

Lots of love (and bringing you more), Hope xoxo
