  • Your perspective will either be your prison or passport

    “Your perspective will either become your prison or your passport. It will either confine you to the way things are, or launch you into the way things are meant to be.”

    Steven Furtick

    What is this quote trying to tell us abut perspective?

    We know perspective is another point of view. The quote shows us the power of our mindset, how we decide to see what is going on.

    When we think of prisons, it evokes feelings of being trapped, deprivation of freedom, a tough environment to thrive in.

    Will you allow your perspective to make you feel as if there is no hope, no value, no purpose? As if you are trapped in your own prison?

    You will feel that you are at the mercy of what is going on. External circumstances that you cannot control.

    That it is happening to you and you are a victim.

    On the other hand, your perspective can be your passport. It will take you places.

    A passport opens up freedom, adventure, vitality!

    When we travel, we undertake personal development and self growth. We open our mind, heart and soul. We see the world in a new way. We expand our knowledge. We broaden our horizon. We thrive in the unknown and embrace ambiguity. We become more confident in ourselves. We reinvent ourselves. We experience unforgettable moments.

    Our mind becomes sharpened.

    As you can see it is a vibrant environment – full of passion and life.

    As we have pondered before, change your thoughts and you change your world.

    How will you choose to view your circumstances?

    Inspirational quotes on perspective

    “The only real prison is fear, and the only real freedom is freedom from fear.”

    Aung San Suu Kyi

    “No one outside ourselves can rule us inwardly. When we know this, we become free.”

    BUDDHA

    “I know but one freedom and that is the freedom of the mind.”

    Antoine de Saint-Exupery

    “There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.”

    Aldous Huxley

    “Perspective is everything when you are experiencing the challenges of life.”

    Joni Eareckson Tada

  • Be a voice not an echo

    Be a voice not an echo. Let us ponder that thought.

    “It only takes one voice, at the right pitch, to start an avalanche.” 

    DIANNA HARDY

    At a young age we are conditioned to be ‘normal’ to follow as everyone else does. The typical life path. Grow up, get a job, grow a career, fall in love, have a family… we are moulded into societal norms.

    Do not be afraid to be your true self.

    Do not be afraid of being different.

    It is what makes you special.

    The origins of ‘be a voice not an echo’ could very well stem from Greek mythology. Zeus was an almighty God of the sky and thunder. He was enamoured by the nymphs on Earth, particularly one by the name of Echo. Echo loved to chat and used her gift of conversation to distract his wife Hera from the affairs he was having. When Hera caught onto this she took away what was most important to Echo, her voice.

    Don’t get caught out in the role of Echo.

    Our voice is a gift. You are a gift.

    You are so valuable.

    You are uniquely you, there is no one else in this world like you.

    Own your power.

    Voice your opinion.

    No, it is not easy, but we have to be brave.

    To have the courage to swim against the stream, to live our life with vitality, with zest, with fire.

    A soul fulfilling life.

    By voicing your opinion, how you feel and what you have to say – it inspires others to do the same.

    By voicing your opinion, you will create and open up discussion and alternative perspectives.

    By voicing your opinion, you create change.

    Be proud of who you are.

    Own it.

    Your voice matters.

    Inspirational quotes on being a voice

    “When you give yourself permission to communicate what matters to you in every situation you will have peace despite rejection or disapproval. Putting a voice to your soul helps you to let go of the negative energy of fear and regret.”

    Shannon L. Alder

    “It only takes one voice, at the right pitch, to start an avalanche.” 

    Dianna Hardy

    “The human voice is the organ of the soul”

    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    We all have a voice. Some a whisper, some a roar. If you can roar, roar for others. If you can only whisper, keep trying. Every roar started small.”    

    M.L. Shanahan

    ““Throughout human history, our greatest leaders and thinkers have used the power of words to transform our emotions, to enlist us in their causes, and to shape the course of destiny. Words can not only create emotions, they create actions. And from our actions flow the results of our lives.”

  • Change your thoughts and change your world

    Change your thoughts and change your world.

    Let’s think deeply on this. What does this mean?

    At times, there are so many thoughts that run through our mind.

    Our thoughts influence our attitude, our perception, our feelings, our behaviour.

    Our thoughts hold energy. A single thought can spark a whirlwind of action.

    The greatest power we have is in being conscious of thoughts. Our internal will. Will we listen to the thoughts? Will we provide a counter thought? Does this thought hold merit?

    With a conscious will, we can use our thoughts like seeds to plant in the garden that is our mind. Over time with love and care, these seeds will prosper, grow and build strong foundations. On this same wavelength, we can consciously choose not to feed thoughts that drain us, that are not helpful.

    Your power and potential begins in being aware of your thoughts. This awareness has limitless potential in elevating your life. It is the start of a beautiful life long journey. Consciousness.

    On the power of our thoughts

    Reality is a projection of your thoughts or the things you habitually think about.

    ~ Stephen Richards

    You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.

    JAMES ALLEN

    Nothing is good or bad, but thinking makes it so.

    WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

    It’s not the situation that’s causing your stress, it’s your thoughts, and you can change that right here and now. You can choose to be peaceful right here and now. Peace is a choice, and it has nothing to do with what other people do or think.

    GERALD G. JAMPOLSKY, MD

    The universe is a cobweb; minds are spiders.

    SWAMI VIVEKANANDA

    Can we control our thoughts?

    We are the masters of our mind. We control our mind.

    Yes we can be triggered. Yes there are external influences. Yes we can be swayed.

    However, no one has the power to put thoughts in our head without our permission. Our mind is the gatekeeper – do we allow this thought? Is this thought of merit? Is it true?

    One tool and resource that I hugely advocate and passionately believe in are affirmations. Affirmations can be used to influence our thoughts is our will and determination..

    They can provide a conscious focus for our power and desire to change.

    The power of our will, the power of our desire.

    Affirmations are powerful statements that we usually repeat to compel us into action or a different state of mind. 

    Equally, they are a conscious statement we make to ourselves. 

    They do indeed help us with a positive, purposeful and growth orientated mindset. 

    in her vitality

    Further information can be found here: The power of affirmations to living soul fulfilling life.

    Given the nature of affirmations – their positivity and power in repetition – they can help increase our mood and focus in our thoughts.

    For example, when I struggle with anxious thoughts, I use affirmations to reframe my thoughts for a positive mindset. I also use affirmations to be calm and accept what is happening.

    In conclusion on changing your thoughts and in turn your world

    The best you can do is think deeply on this and come to a conclusion for yourself. As for what I believe in? Yes, change your thoughts and change your world.

  • 46 Affirmations to radiate self love

    On self love and this guide

    This article will explore the importance of self love and the power it has to transform your life into a soul fulfilling one. It is my hope after reading this you will feel further connected and at peace with your self. The resources within this guide are 46 affirmations to radiate self love. 

    What is self love?

    Self love is how we feel about ourselves. It is linked to our self esteem. It is caring and having regard for your own well-being and happiness. It is how we experience ourselves.

    From my understand of it, self love is:

    ♥ Accepting yourself. Your worthiness. Honouring yourself. Being true to who you are.

    ♥ Authenticity. Knowing that you have flaws and that is okay, being at peace with it.

    ♥ Listening to your needs. Understanding what we want. Choosing ourself without comprising or sacrificing when we truly do not want to do so. This resource may be of help, A guide on how to use love languages. Love languages may be of use to you in understanding yourself better. 

    ♥ Taking care yourself. Your well-being. Nourishing our mind, body and soul.
    “An empty lantern provides no light. Self-care is the fuel that allows your light to shine brightly.”
    – Unknown

    An influential factor in decision making such as the actions we take, the partners we choose for a relationship, the behaviour we accept from ourselves and others.

    How we may feel about a soul mate or best friend in life – channeling that loving energy to ourselves. How we would treat them – with patience, love, respect, kindness and understanding.

    “Love yourself unconditionally, just as you love those closest to you despite their faults.”

    les brown

    ♥ Trusting yourself. Listening to your intuition and gut feelings. Knowing that you always make the best decision for yourself at that time. We know ourselves best. No one can self love for us.

    Quotes that inspire and speak to self love

    “Worthy now. Not if. Not when. We are worthy of love and belonging now. Right this minute. As is.”

    brene brown

    “Self respect, self worth and self love, all start with self. Stop looking outside of yourself for your value.”

    Rob Liano

    “It’s not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and make your happiness a priority. It’s a necessity.”

    mandy hale

    “A healthy self-love means we have no compulsion to justify to ourselves or others why we take vacations, why we sleep late, why we buy new shoes, why we spoil ourselves from time to time. We feel comfortable doing things which add quality and beauty to life.”

    ANDREW MATTHEWS

    “It’s all about falling in love with yourself and sharing that love with someone who appreciates you, rather than looking for love to compensate for a self love deficit.”

    Eartha Kitt
