The MaGic..

I found this article from inspiration2go, it is a very thoughtful writing about the magic of life. When you think that things were not going the way you wanted it to be, have a deeper look into it. You might find that things were done in a reasonable way, as if it's always good for you (even if you don't think so). Have a look at the last four sentences at the end of the article below. Whatever it is that you've been through, there's always a good thing behind a not-so-good thing =) So, be thankful..


The magic of INTENTION

Intention is a way to focus, and bring your mind energy and power to work for you in the physical universe. Your intention can be, to be joyful, to gain clarity, to solve a problem, to bring a new relationship into your life, to be financially independent, etc... The procedure or "how to" intent is not important. You can go within and think about your intention. You can visualize it or meditate on it. Any method that brings your focus and attention to your intention is sufficient.

To reinforce your intention you can create or use a physical representation of that intention (write it on a paper, select a card for it, use a picture, etc.) or you can sing it aloud repeatedly.

The magic of NOURISHING YOURSELF

When you give to yourself, the universe receives the message that you are worthy and as such, begins to treat you in that way, in fact giving you more. The essential ingredient is persistence. Don't give to yourself only once, because it is your birthday. Nourish yourself on a regular basis and the results will be beyond your wildest expectations. Tip: most of us lack physical and emotional nourishment, silence and contact with nature.

The magic of GRATITUDE

The bottle of life is at all times both half full and half empty. We've become accustomed to focusing on the empty half. One of the fundamental universal laws is that you manifest in your life what you're preoccupied with. Thus, the more you concentrate on the empty half, the more of it you create.

Let's conduct an experiment, with the aim to create a different experience. For 24 hours choose to be only grateful. Find reasons to appreciate everything, and experience what miracles occur.

It's a beautiful day - THANK YOU WEATHER.
Dinner wasn't appetizing - HURRAY! - I can maintain my diet.
The kids are healthy - WOW!
I'm stuck in traffic - GREAT! - I have time to organize my nourishment plan.

Some pictures to open up a fresh new week...It's all about LOVE. Love what you eat, love what you're doing, love life, love one another and so on. Enjoy the pictures =)


SquinT

I was browsing on some craft works and stumbled upon this site, SQUINT. It's like falling in love at the very first sight. The main reason why it's so good is because it's so unique. Just like in fashion, you can call each piece of this furniture a couture design. Look at the color..those colors make you happy and smile, right? If the store is located in my country, I definitely will visit the store.

Rich and Poor

Sometimes perception can play a really important role in our thought. I am sure that when two people look at the same thing, they might have different perceptive on that exact same thing. The story below tells us that being rich or being poor depends on how we perceive our live compare to other people's life. Having all the money in the world will not guarantee you to be happy always. Sometimes, all we need is our mind to think that we are rich. Rich in terms of having all the things valuable in live such as family, friends, love and many more. I think that being rich doesn't mean that you have all those material things, being rich for me is to always have happiness and love around me, sharing those moments with family and friends. That's is my version of being rich =)


One day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live.

They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.
On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, "How was the trip?"
"It was great, Dad."

"Did you see how poor people live?" the father asked."Oh yeah," said the son.

"So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?" asked the father.
The son answered:

  • "I saw that we have one dog and they had four.
  • We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end.
  • We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night.
  • Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon.
  • We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight.
  • We have servants who serve us, but they serve others.
  • We buy our food, but they grow theirs.
  • We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them."
The boy's father was speechless.
Then his son added, "Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are."

Isn't perspective a wonderful thing? Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying about what we don't have.

Appreciate every single thing you have!
