Daily Inspiration for the Mind
Want to attract opportunities and positive experiences? Here's a quick meditation trick to magnetize yourself! Breathe in as deeply as you can and forcefully push the air out through your teeth three times to prepare.
Now it's time to shift your perspective so you will attract high vibrations. Close your eyes and see yourself glowing a bright yellow like a human powerplant. See the space around your full of energetic light that creates happiness. Now push that light out easily for thousands and thousands of miles so it can touch everyone in it's path. Now say to yourself, 'I share happiness and love with everyone I meet.' Open your eyes and feel that glow still around you.
When we shift our perspective to giving instead of getting we open the flow of the energy to a much greater extent. We have unlimited love to give and can give it to everyone instead of waiting for it to come to us. This keeps our vibration high and keeps us in a flow of high vibrational living. If you were to focus on what thing that would change your life, this could absolutely be it!
Here's a way to increase your happiness right now! We are going to focus on loving where you are right now. You have so much to be grateful for.
What is in your life right now? A home, food, a job, a friend? Say to yourself, "I love my car, I love my hair, I love my home, I love my clothes." Whatever is in your life that you can be grateful for will help you see how blessed you really are!
Now say, "I love my life, I love my life!" If you don't completely believe yourself, keep saying it and write it down 30 times a day until you've rewritten this belief into your subconscious.
Did you know being too stressed can affect your memories? When you've been anxious, worried or even frantic from having too much on your plate for long periods of time, your body responds by releasing cortisol into your system. Too much of this stress hormone can have a blocking effect on the part of your brain that converts new experiences into memories.
Think about it like this: If your camera was taking blurry family vacation photos, you'd get it fixed or replace it, right? While we can't replace our brains, we can certainly take steps to repair and maintain them. It's easy to get stuck in this cycle of stress, but if you're self-aware enough to see this pattern before it gets out of hand, you can put everything back into balance! The simple act of laughing or losing yourself in music can be a great start to making sure your precious memories are being saved properly!
Did you know that spending just 15 minutes outside every day can improve your mood and decrease anxiety? Fresh air reduces stress and increases those feel-good hormones!
Your skin creates Vitamin D from healthy sun exposure, a vitamin thought to impact the serotonin levels in our brains.
Serotonin regulates your mood, appetite, and sex drive. Scientists have linked lower levels of serotonin to depression. Don't waste your days inside! Find a fun activity to do in the great outdoors, or simply go for a quick walk around the block. Get outside and give your mental health a boost today!
Did you know that smiling alone activates feel-good chemicals in the brain? Smiling and laughing boost serotonin and endorphins in our brains, and surprisingly, also reduces the stress hormone, cortisol.
Share a laugh with a friend. Check out a comedy show. Watch a funny movie. Even, fake it till you make it. Turn that frown upside down! Improve your mental health, appearance, and relationships by smiling a little more. You will feel happier, less stressed, and lead a much more fulfilling life.
Recent research indicates that regular social engagement helps to maintain your mind and your memory with age. Those that frequently socialize with others reportedly live longer and have decreased feelings of loneliness, stress, and anxiety.
Spend more time with the people you love. Surround yourself with a solid support system. Take part in social activities. Join a sports team or group to meet others with similar interests. Don't isolate yourself when you are feeling down. Talk to a friend or a family member. Become mentally strong and engage with the people around you!

It seems we'd give anything for a decent night's rest these days, but we might not be aware of how we sabotage ourselves when it comes to getting enough zzz's!
Do you wait to head to bed until you can't keep your eyes open anymore? Do you slap the snooze button more and more before pulling yourself out of your cozy nest? If this sounds familiar, you might be throwing off your internal body clock. While there is a childlike delight in staying up late, by not keeping a positive P.M. routine, you could be creating a cycle that can make you more tired in the long run.
If you've been having some trouble drifting off to sleep, there are a few little things that can help you prepare for bed - and they don't come in a bottle! Sometimes, the best solution is the simplest! Limiting the amount of food you eat close to bed time, finishing your exercise regime a few hours before you wind down and turning your alarm clock away from you so you can't nervously check it throughout the night are all little tricks that can actually help you catch a few more zzz's.
Sleep is often something we just assume will happen and we take for granted that we'll snooze as soon as our head hits the pillow. If you are having trouble drifitng off though, start eliminating the distractions that are keeping you from getting rest, and you might see some surprising results!

Did you know that watermelon contributes to good body hydration and promotes weight loss?
Watermelon is among the most moisturizing fruits because it’s composed of over 92% water. Water plays a vital role in the elimination of toxins, the regulation of the body, the temperature, the nutrient supply and the oxygenation of cells.
Watermelon should be part of your menu, especially if you want to lose weight. With its great wealth of water, fiber and antioxidants, it will help keep your stomach full for a long time and at the same time contribute to the detoxification of your body.
Did you know that being too hot can keep you from getting enough sleep?
Depending on where we live, our natural inclination is to bundle up for bed, especially in the colder climates. Piling on slippers, popping a hot water bottle under the sheets, and adding an extra cozy blanket or two is par for the course, but it could be preventing you from getting a full night's sleep.
Our body temperature actually starts to fall the closer we get to bedtime, and being cooler helps us to get a better night's rest. If you've been feeling more tired than usual, you might just be too hot through the night! Of course we need to feel comfortable, and that's going to be different for all of us, but experiment and see if it makes a difference!
Daily Inspiration for the Soul

Do you know when your throat feels tight that it is a sign of a blocked throat chakra? Not only that but breakouts and stiff muscles in that area could indicate you need to voice your truth.
If you stand close to someone who needs to speak their mind about something in their life, your throat will often get tight because your energy will pick up on their block. You can gently nudge them to see that it's good to say what their heart feels and it's safe to be transparent.

Do you know where your third eye chakra is? Just as a bird has an internal radar that guides them to migrate, we too have glands in our brain that guide us to safety and the things that will nourish our spirit.
The pineal gland is in front part of your brain close to the forehead and eyebrows. It is sometimes surrounded by nanocrystals which means it's calcified and innactive. When we decalcify it, we can access a movie screen that allows us to see in another dimension beyond time and space.
And you thought you were just a simple human! The third eye is depicted between the eyebrows and you will even be able to feel energy in this center when you meditate and do yoga as it opens. Some people see flashing lights and colors when it opens.
Simple ways to decalify it are with flouride free toothpaste and flouride free water or chanting ONG for 11 minutes a day. Just focussing on this area will start to activate it as well.
Today's Mantra: "My happiness comes from the love I give. The people in my life are extremely loving just like me. The love I give is a force that heals me and others."
