MBG: Struggling With Willpower? A ‘Spiritual Anchor’ Is The Solution You’ve Been Looking For

A “spiritual anchor” is an object that reminds people of what gives their lives meaning and purpose and consequently why they may want to change their behavior. It’s a talisman that connects to the most powerful neuro-networks in the central nervous system those that influence behaviors. This is because meaning and purpose are strongly related to emotions that “emote movement” toward healthy choices, choices people make because they are associated with what matters most to them.

A Bountiful Moment

The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us. ~Voltaire

Daily Thought: When you look back at past experiences make sure you are focusing on the wins, the overcoming and the achievements. Don’t focus on what should have been, could have been or the what if? Focus on the positive aspects of you and your life will only grow more of the same. Be strong and support the best you to continue to be better and better

Daily Practice: Write yourself a small note of congratulations for all you have accomplished. Write it as if it is to someone you are really proud of and inspired by. Write as many details as possible describing what characteristics you see as impressive and awesome! Now read it back to yourself. Save it and read it over and over and over until you can believe it is you.

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

MNN: How to identify different types of bees

When was the last time you were in your garden, saw a bee, grabbed it and squeezed it? Probably never, right?

Unless you’ve done that, there’s a good chance that if you’ve ever been stung it wasn’t by a bee, said Becky Griffin. And she would know. Griffin teaches classes on bees to children and adults through the Center for Urban Agriculture at the University of Georgia Extension’s Northwest District and is a certified beekeeper in Cherokee County, Georgia

Patheos-Pagan: Lord of the Rings: Lessons to Remember, Lessons to Forget

A couple weeks ago some friends and I gathered for a Lord of the Rings marathon: all three movies back to back to back, complete with second breakfast, elevenes, lunch, dinner, and enough tea and ale to keep all the hobbits happy. It was a fun day – and a long day.

Tales of heroism – particularly from creatures as small and unlikely as hobbits – are popular with everyone

Inner Journey: What do you feed your mind

“I then remembered why I avoid the ‘news,’ if that’s what you want to call it. Our ‘news’ is a misnomer, and it’s more like ‘the ongoing train wreck you can tune in to at any time when you want to divert yourself from your purpose and your happiness… lose your faith in humanity… and go from feeling like things are pretty good to feeling like the world is going to sh*t and why bother going on, I mean really?'”
— Ali Brown

Our beliefs create our reality. If we wish to live happy, healthy lives, it’s vital that we feed our minds healthy, nourishing material. The negative, sensational focus of today’s ‘news’ media hardly serves to enlighten us about the true state of the planet. Let’s open to our limitless potential by keeping our focus firmly on what uplifts us.

“The world is not dying. It’s not falling apart. It’s changing. I personally believe that pessimism is an indulgence, despair an insult to the imagination. There are wonderfully positive things out there.”
— Wade Davis

A Note from the Universe

As if the most accomplished amongst you didn’t have their own piercing doubts, fears, and worries. Didn’t have spells when they believed they were inadequate, lost, and dependent. Hadn’t at times felt downhearted, discouraged, and all alone in the world.

Yet still… you know their names.

Today’s Recipe: Thai Yellow Curry

This curry is by far one of my family’s favourite meals. It’s creamy, savoury, spicy and has a hint of sweetness. This version uses chicken, potatoes and carrots, but you can use any mix of meats and/or vegetables and it’s an absolute delight.

Beliefnet: Peace of Mind Becoming Fully Present

. If you have an unpleasant feeling, a feeling of sadness, fear, worry, or despair, you may think you don’t have the capacity to return home to be in touch with that emotion, to manage and embrace it. You want to run away from it and you have many ways to run away, like magazines, books, music, food, the Internet, or busily strategizing so you won’t be in touch with your body and mind. Mind and body are alienated from each other, and this makes us sick

A Bountiful Moment

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And Today? Today is a gift. That’s why we call it the present. ~Babatunde Olatunji

Daily Thought: Today is a great day! Don’t miss it by ruminating over what has already passed. Don’t let it go by with your focus on what is going to happen tomorrow. Stay present in the moments of the day to experience fully all the beauty and joy it will bring.

Daily Practice: Focus on your day today by staying present and experiencing all the good, fun, and joy that occurs. Listen to the sounds, smell the aromas, feel the temperature, see the people, and experience the emotion of every second of happiness.

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

Patheos-Pagan: When Force Is On The Dot

Many see the card of Force as a representation of strength. In invented stories about this card, the woman with the lion is an archetype of power; not social power, as we reserve that for the Emperor, but power that has to do with character and moral spine.

Fair enough.

Inner Journey: Free to choose

“Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility.”
— Sigmund Freud

In his book Nobody�s Victim, Christopher J. McCullough explains, “In order to live your freedom, you must first accept reality. ‘These are the choices, and given those choices, which do I choose?’ Whether the option you select is pleasant or painful does not alter the fact that, given reality, this is your preference.

“To live your freedom, it is helpful to stop and ask yourself, ‘Why am I doing this?’ and then notice whether, given the options, you are choosing what you really want, or whether you want to choose something else…. Sometimes the exercise of freedom involves naming your poison — all choices may lead to outcomes that are in some way painful. But the real pain is that of feeling powerless — denying your freedom.”

“Freedom is man’s capacity to take a hand in his own development. It is our capacity to mold ourselves.”
— Dr. Rollo May

A Note from the Universe

Your very thoughts are the key. You can do it. Whatever you want, you can have it. Just think it, feel it, and vaguely move towards it. And with persistence, tipping points will be reached, critical mass formed, and the most outlandish serendipities arranged.

The world you now live in was created this very way, and through “thinking” you perpetuate the celebration. You are a nonstop creating machine; a manifesting maestro. You are pure “cause.”

And for now, it’s still virtually a secret: Your very thoughts are the key.

Infinite love,

The Universe

Today’s Recipe: Cucumber Mint Raisin Yogurt Salad

We eat this yogurt salad on the side of most of our Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes, especially ones that include meat or rice. It’s really refreshing and is great as a palate cleanser. It’s really easy to throw together and has fantastic textures.   https://www.thriftyfun.com/Cucumber-Mint-Raisin-Yogurt-Salad.html

Perception

“Life does not consist mainly, or even largely, of facts and happenings. It consists mainly of the storm of thoughts that are forever blowing through one’s mind.” ~-Mark Twain

Isn’t it amazing how we can each see the same thing in an entirely different way? It’s because of our perceptions. Our past experiences help us to formulate some kind of definition to our current experiences. Yet we can change the way we look at things. We can choose a different perspective, see things from someone else’s point of view, or from a higher vantage point. And when we broaden our scope and look at the “big picture” then we can see more clearly what is real.

MBG: Think Small Changes Won’t Help? Here Are 4 That Will Transform Your Mental Health

We’re all familiar with the goals so many of us set to support and improve our physical health, like going to the gym or trying an elimination diet. But what we often fail to address in our quest for improved wellness is our mental and emotional health. Sure, the benefits of addressing our physical wellness may very well spill over into our emotional sphere, but isn’t our mental health important enough to focus on in and of itself?
