Stress

Acceptance might just be the single best thing you can do for your health

Apart from drinking water. Water is magic.. And sleeping, and meditating, walking in nature..

Okay... So are there many single best things but why is acceptance so important to your health and wellbeing?

Firstly,  for life changing tools and tips from all things from self acceptance, to reviving your mojo, to feeling strong and supple, come on over to my newly minted Facebook live in my Limitless Facebook group every Wednesday at 9:30 (Central European Time).

Acceptance is where is all begins. Its like the prequel to forgivenss. If you don't accept what's going on for you, past or present, then you get stuck in judgements and resentments and the stress these emotions have on your body can wreck havoc. and illness can manifest..

"To carry a grudge is like being stung to death by one bee" Anonymous

You can't make good new choices for yourself when you are unaccepting. Accepting doesnt mean condoning or saying it's okay, not at all, so many things are "unacceptable" but accepting allows you to take constructive action or move forward and make your peace.

Unacceptance is like denial which keeps us trapped and in a funk, and acceptance is one part of the recipe for a free, lighter and limitless life.

In accepting people and situations around you, including your stress levels and your crazy boss, it's absolutely essential to accept yourself.

"If you accept and learn not to criticise yourself you will find true health - physically, mentally spiritually" Yogi Bhajan

Studies have shown, one in particular by Harvard Medical school that self acceptance has physical and emotional benefits.

So how do we do it?

We have to accept others, when you accept others you can accept yourself. You will feel light and free. Let that stuff go!

Acceptance exercise.. Just for one day try and notice how you are judging and when you do catch yourself breath deeply and choose to Let it go. You can even say "I let you go".. Then consciously go through your mental list - accept your parents, your boss, your spouse, and people who have hurt you in some way. There might be things you cannot accept, but that's okay, just accept that you arent ready yet. One day you will be and you will feel light and free and alive. You can decide if you its worth doing again tomorrow, no pressure - self accptance all the way. I talk you through it in my live.

We have to take responsibilty that our feelings about people and stuff are our own contruct, and we have a choice feel better about things.

"There is nothing good, nothing bad -thinking makes it so" Yogi Bahjan

How you can Pay It Forward...and 1 min meditation for anxiety.

Hi Lovely,

I mean't to write last week but I had a nasty tummy bug, and then the school holidays and, well, everything got shelved for a while.

My body and my mind needed a bit of downtime and I took it... And now I feel great again. Yay!

I have so many things to tell you about - We had a blast the weekend before last at the official launch of our amazing book The Pay It Forward Series; Notes To My Younger Self. 

I felt like a film star. We all did.

Not only was it awesome to spend some quality time with my mum, cousin and friends and feel their love and support, but it was great, if not a bit overwhelming, to actually meet my co.authors

I had total imposter syndrome and feelings of inadequacy being thrown in with these formidible women and was a bag of nerves. I've been feeling a bit anxious generally lately.

I often get a bit of anxiety from time to time, and have been using my Kundalini Yoga tools to bring me back into my body (check out the 2 minute alternate nostril breathing technique here and below) but everybody was super lovely and I relaxed straight away and felt the compassion and comradarie.  The sisterhood vibe was super high!

It felt like I'd known them all for years. 

Not only were we sharing the pages of the same book, but we had been back to dark places and then brought them into light for everyone to see and black and white. We all knew how that felt. Vulnerable but powerful - and you could feel it. We also had loads of support and a good male presence which put the yang in our yin and it was dynamite.

The energy was so bright and vibrant that it felt like a rocket launch rather than a book launch.

So now its time to read the book and Pay It Forward.

To someone you know or someone you don't.  By telling our stories we can plant the seeds of hope and we can cultivate the growth of inner strength. Here's how you can reach out and let someone know that they are not alone.

1. Buy two books: amazon.co.uk/dp/B07B42YM62
Keep one for yourself, then...

2. Before you give the second book away, use the message box on page 7 to write your own words of hope, wisdom, knowledge and inspiration to the next woman you are going to pay it forward to 🙂

3. Give it to a friend, family member, or even a complete stranger by leaving it on a bus, a train, a park bench, or even on the table in your local cafe.

4. Take a picture of where you left it (or with the person you've given it to) and post it on social media with the words, "I left mine (on the sink of the loo in )" and share it, tagging me in with these hashtags

#womenofcontribution #payitforward #1billionlives

And what happens if the wrong person picks it up?  I don't think there ever a wrong person and it will always find it's way to the right person. The right story will resonate.  I was just chased down the street after leaving it on a bus.. "Hey Madam,  You have forgotten your book".. "Oh Thank you", I said (to not the right person) and left it again, at another spot for another finder.  Maybe the new finder won't need it either...... but her sister/friend/mother/stranger might.  

Check out the alternate nostril breathing 1 minute meditation for anxiety. It really works.

Thank you.
