#Tuesdaytips…

There is a well known and very much overlooked ‘secret’ that Master Manifestors use continuously. It is a very basic, simple component that sets in motion all that exists in the human world. We all know it is real and absolutely necessary. Yet the vast majority of people do their level best to avoid it.

Without this ‘secret’, all dreams, hopes, wishes and well intentioned goals will remain in a keepsake box stuffed under the bed. The box will be pulled out on rainy afternoons, and its carefully saved articles dusted off and cherished once more. Some time will be spent in pondering potential possibilities, and hopefulness will expire. Great wistfulness will settle over its guardian, and with a tired resolve, the goals, ambitions and really serious potential will be carefully put to rest once more.

The real definition of potential, to put it politely, is ‘worth nothing as it sits right now’. Goals, dreams, wishes, hopes and desire have only potential without the obvious secret that can only lead to manifestation. Not worth a darn right now. There is little so common in the world as latent potential. But add the magic ingredient, and your desires will become manifest before your eyes. Pour a viscous, electric blue liquid into your keepsake box, and it will empty itself into your real world.

This secret, magic ingredient is commonly known as ‘action’. Git’r done, get it on, go, just do it, start, ACTION. This is a billion dollar concept that gifted speakers devote entire seminars to. 😁

All desires must begin their journey into manifestation somewhere. All things already exist, but you must accept them, or go get them. You must actively allow results to happen. Take action, and get what it is you want.

Consider a sated, comfortable diner sitting after dinner at a lavish restaurant buffet. All she wanted to eat waits in shiny serving dishes. She tremendously wishes for a piece of delicious pie, but has none. Magnificent fresh pie is only across the room. Does she really want the pie itself, or is the activity of wanting pie more fun? Which will be more satisfying, wanting the desire, or fulfilling the desire? What will it take to fulfill this dream? In the diner’s case, the monumental undertaking of getting up and taking the pie will satisfy a craving. 🤷‍♀️🏽

Lose the potential, and take the action. Start and the path to success will unfold in front of you as you walk upon it. The pathway will continue as long as you wish to travel, but you must take that first step. Desire all you want, but without actually doing something about it, the reality will never manifest itself in front of you, and remain a wistful keepsake stuffed under the bed in a box.

Take action, start, and your path will reveal itself to you. Action.

Tips For Anxiety Relief…

Sleeping has become one of my greatest struggles. I’ve spent countless nights, tossing and turning, staring at the ceiling with a million thoughts rushing through my head.

Regardless of how tired I was that day, I still find it so difficult to close my eyes and get rid of all those thoughts – my anxiety is just eating me alive.

Is this you? How do you deal with anxiety right before bed???😔

Here are a couple of tips👇🏾

▪️UPLUG: This should be something we all do, I usually put my phone on the charger and turn my back. If you love tv try turning it off and make the room completely dark, this gives you time to relax and get your brain ready to mellow out.!

NO email 💌 checking

NO social media surfing

NO talking to toxic folk before bedtime period…..

▪️LIMIT YOUR NEGATIVE EXPOSURE:

Don’t have an argument with your spouse, children, co-worker, or drama filled friend right before bed. This puts your anxiety on level 10 and sends your blood pressure sky high! Ask yourself can this toxic conversation wait until tomorrow? 🤔Ask yourself is the conversation even worth having right before you get ready to relax…so politely decline their call…believe me their drama will be there tomorrow 🤷‍♀️🏽

▪️LISTEN TO INSPIRATIONAL PODCAST OR READ SOMETHING INSPIRATIONAL:

Find the right podcast for you, I lean more towards spiritual podcast but you can choose what you like. I’m not much of a reader as my eyes are getting bad, but find a good book to curl up with. I like trashy books because it takes my mind far away from here…

▪️WRITE YOUR WORRIES DOWN AND TUCK THEM AWAY:

Y’all know how I feel about journaling, but if you don’t like to write 📝 please try it! Write down everything you know that comes to your mind right before bed, tuck it away in your Bible or desk drawer and leave it there. Now, focus on whatever you want to, I love focusing on my future life…that brings me joy!! I think about my sweet grandbabies and how funny 😄 they are, anything that calms my mind. Those worries will be there tomorrow so enjoy your rest my dear….

I know that anxiety is hard to get rid of and most times it happens right before bed, but you are going to have to figure out how to calm all those anxious thoughts.

Please note that we all have different coping mechanisms, so some of these tips may not work for you but don’t give up.

Sleep 🌙 well my loves….💋
