Wow what enlightening article 🙂
Happy Tuesday Friends.... Life Is Wonderful, yes I do believe that now!!😁 It is so simple and so easy to get what we want that we have a hard time to believe it. We are programmed to do things the hard and difficult way, in order to get what we want. We can not believe that we can get anything without hard labour, sweat and tears, obstacles and misery. This is nothing else but a tough old programmation, a conditioning from our childhood. If you are like me, you were bombarded as a child with expressions from adults about how hard life is and how we have to struggle to get something. We were submitted to a hazardous universe or a God of revenge who could pick us out without any reason to take revenge on us for something we did wrong. We needed to avoid being bad or wrong, but disease could strike us anyway. Sometimes they even said : “It’s again a good one who’s punished, and the bad one take off easily like usual without paying anything!”. We learned that life wasn’t fair. We lived in fear and thought life was a valley of tears, fear, struggle, pain, disease and death? How would it have been if they’ve told us the truth? The truth, nothing but the truth?🤷🏾♀️ That life is easy, wonderful. That miracles happen all the time and that we have the power to make them happen in our own life! That the universe loves us. That there is wealth and health for everyone. That we don’t live in a universe of scarcity but of abundance. That we only have to put the right thoughts in our heads to make these dreams real for us. What would your life have looked like if your parents and teachers would have taught you the truth? You we would have suffered much less! You would not have believed you were less than nothing. You would not have been filled with fear over your ears of getting sick or failing, of being stupid or being not good enough. If you would have known from the beginning that you were a creation of the Creator, that you will always remain, that you will always be around, that you were created for a reason, and when you find this reason you will be happy, what would your life look like now? If you were told that you had talents, unique qualities, that make you a special person, and that you are on earth with the mission to offer these talents to others, where would you be right now and what would you be doing now? Isn’t it nice? The Genius who created this whole thing did really well : we are sent to earth with a mission and to be able to assume our mission we are already fully equiped from the beginning : we are gifted with natural talents and all we have to do is develop our talents and offer them to the world! Simply said, we have to do what we can do easily already and what we are talented for, and than happiness, satisfaction, love, money and everything we want comes flowing our way! It is so beautiful, this concept! All we have to do is to do what we love! And of course we need to stop once for all to think we don’t deserve happiness or wealth or health. All these thoughts are wrong because they go against the principles of creation of the Universe. We are already wonderful! We are already loved! We are already rich! We are already free! We are already intelligent! We are already healthy!🙌🏾💪🏾 Why? Because we were all this before we started our life. It is the way we really are. It is the way we were created, we were born. This is the truth about ourselves. Everything else is “learned” afterwards. The good news is whatever is learned can be un-learned. Every programmation can be changed and replaced by a new program. And again, life is wonderful, because a positive thought is 10,000 times more powerful than a negative thought. So you don’t have to take another 40 years to undo the negative conditioning in your head. One positive thought can counterbalance 10,000 negative ones. Can you imagine? Aren’t we lucky? If you choose to do so, you can rapidly turn around your negative program in your head. Go to the bookstore, buy some books with positive thoughts, put them at every toilet in the house, in the bathroom, in your bedroom, in your living room, and read them whenever you think of it or see them. It doesn’t matter if you read one page after another or if you just open the book as it falls in your hands. The message you will receive will be the right one for you at that very moment. Every morning you start your day by saying thank you to the Universe for your bed, your house, the roof over your head, the people living with your, the water coming out of your tap, the light switching on by a simple gesture of your hand, the food available, the choices you can make that day, the love you received in your life and the love you will receive, the miracles which will happen today and the air you can breath. In your car, listen to CD’s with positive programmation. Listen to them while you make dinner, clean the house or iron your clothes. Surround yourself with positive people and stop nourishing negative social talk. Don’t watch television unless there is some really positive program. There is a lot you can do to take a positive turn in your life. Don’t think you can do nothing. You are responsible for your life now. Make your choice! Know that every thought you think is either one which will weaken you, or one which will make you feel stronger. The choice is yours!
Have an amazing day friends….
Remember you can always reprogram your mind….

— Read on blackhealthmatters.com/2017/05/08/debunking-mental-health-myths/
You can’t pray away depression…good read!
3 years ago I was scared, feeling low, tired, suicidal, and angry when I started this blog! I didn’t know how to blog or write, hell still don’t but I did🤦🏽♀️😉it! I got on there set it up and went for it!
The first blog name was Blackgirldown, because that’s who I was. Down and out with no hope at all, I didn’t see things ever looking up for me, so I begin to write! The grammar was horrible, made tons of mistakes, but I got my point across.
Family and friends who read the blog complained but yet never comforted me, it was my outlet and mines alone.
Along the way I started to find my way and begin to understand the blogging world, now I’m celebrating my 3️⃣ year anniversary.🙌🏾💪🏾
I tell you this story because I know some of you fear starting something new and unfamiliar, unlike most of you, you have me!😉I had no one and went it alone! I’m proud of my new blog because it shows how I’ve grown and learned to start healing. It’s now called Olivia-b-Shepherd.blog after who I am, smart, fierce, recovering, and ready to begin life again!
You too can do this as well, yes you will be scared, yes you will make mistakes, hell yes there will be people are going to criticize you for doing the things they can’t, but do it anyway! 💪🏾
If you need help please reach out and we can do these hard things together, that’s what mentors are for!!!
I’m ready when you are girl…..💞

3 Quick Steps To Practice Mindfulness
Step One: Journal 📔 Your Thoughts
Right down what you are thinking about first thing in the morning how you want your day to go, then again at night to reflect on the day! Don’t let your past creep in, don’t let what happen yesterday creep in…just stay focused on the present day! One day at a time sis…💓
Step Two: TURN OFF YOUR PHONE 📱
Yes Girl, 😳I know….much like me I do all my business from that damn phone, but ask my friends and family…when I put my phone down I do! I don’t answer calls, texts, or emails for about 2-3 hours. During this I nap or just sit and relax, this keeps you focused and calm! The world 🌎 will be fine without you for a couple of hours, your health is most important!
Step Three: LEARN TO MEDITATE🧘🏾♀️
Meditation is the key to mindfulness. It allows us to learn how to be mindful. It is the key to the whole ideal. Without it, it is much more difficult to become mindful in any moment. Sit down, close your eyes, focus on your breath, and just be in the moment.
Mindfulness has been shown to improve overall health, improve our brain functionality, and will enable you to be a calmer, happier, more intentional person. Yes, I know it’s hard to turn our wired brains 🧠 off but I promise just for about 10 minutes you will definitely notice a change.
Be kind to someone who suffers, learn how to help and what not to say!
Have an awesome Friday💚
