Heal with play !

“The body heals with play, the mind heals with laughter and the spirit heals with joy.”

It wasn’t until it started raining cats and dogs and it went completely dark outside that I realized my son had escaped my attention completely. Suddenly I was aware of the silence inside… No answer when I called him. I looked around in every room, he was nowhere to be found ! Strange, a few minutes ago he was still absorbed in his play…

But then I turned my head and looked outside. There he was in our garden, jumping joyfully up and down on his trampoline completely naked in the pouring rain !

The overprotecting mom in me immediately thought of getting him out of the rain as quickly as possible, but instead of spoiling the fun for him, I decided to observe him for a while.

I have to admit : his energy was contagious ! The whole spectacle made me smile from top to toe aswell.

It made me realize how freely, innocently and joyfully children move through life. It made me realize how often we, adults put an end to this spontaneity.

To what extent are we killers of dreams and are we guilty of destroying the creativity and curiosity of our children ? How many times do we tell them to stop imagining…

How long have you been hiding your own inner child ? How long have you neglected it, avoided it or refused to talk to it ?

What are your excuses for not bringing back some joy in your life ? It’s too late…I’m too old for this…what will the neighbours say ? I’m not supposed to do this, I’m a grown up now…Let’s be serious…

It is programming and conditionning from our childhood that determines so much of how we operate in life and unfortunately we unconsciously project our own restrictions on our children later in life. Because the child within you has been repressed, you will repress your children.

We haven’t healed our own inner child yet and still carry around our own childhood wounds and hurts. All this past pain has consumed our innocence and our ability to look at life with childlike wonder.

Look how easily children connect when they are playing. Look how easily we forget time when we are playing…Playfulness is in our nature ! Joy can nurture us back to life !

How to access your superpowers

“Be imaginative, set no limits, have fun!”

Stan Lee

Stan Lee, father of all contempory superheroes just passed away at age 95. Rest in peace Legend !

How do we access our superpowers? According to Dwayne Johnson aka “The Rock” this is the advice that Stan Lee entrusted him at the beginning of his Hollywood career.

Be imaginitive – use your imagination

Start at the finish ! Think about the end result. Focus on what you want to achieve and then start visualising it. Visualising is using your imagination to the fullest. So make a beautiful, detailed movie in your imagination of how YOU want it !

How to achieve your goals : here are some tips from superhero Deadpool  !

No limits – No restrictions

We judge and criticize ourselves in many ways, we sabotage ourselves by not having confidence in our capabilities, we keep doubting ourselves. With words we give our bodies commands, we call these self-suggestions.

Can you feel how thoughts and words affect your body :

I am a loser… I can’t, it’s too hard, It’s impossible,…

These sentences stop growth, they are limiting and create blockages, they are taught (conditionned) behavior and keep you from achieving your heart’s desires !

I’ll give it a try …

The favorite word of the eternal doubter is trying. Trying is not having faith, trying doesn’t get you anywhere, it gives little or no results, it’s repetitive, it’s a race without end, you keep walking in circles …

I can, I am, I believe I can do anything, I do it, it’s done …

These words stimulate growth and are constructive for our body, it means that we trust our intuition and believe in our unlimited resources.

Have fun – Enjoy the process

Positive feelings are like magnets : they will attract what you want at a much faster rate. You will never achieve lasting results when you miss the fun factor in what you are doing.

Be passionate ! Passion will propel you forward and provide the neccessary fuel for all your endeavours.

Face front true believers !

This man. This legend. When I first broke into Hollywood 17yrs ago, Stan Lee (iconic co creator of Spider Man, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Dr Strange etc) welcomed me with open arms. Always offering sage advice to help build my career. “Be imaginative, set no limits.. have fun”, he said. Dwayne Johnson

The power of imagination

Life is a process of learning, unlearning and relearning.

Remember when they told you : “It’s just your imagination ! Put your dreams away ! You can’t do that !”

Let the words of the greatest convince you of the power of your imagination !

Dating disasters…

Some people need a push at times to propel them into action, some can use a little help now and then when it comes to meeting new people, going on a date for example…

What if your friend goes on a date tonight but she is absolutely terrified ! She’s nervous…She’s afraid that she will stutter or have a total black out ! She has asked your help !

The only advice you can think of is a classic : “Imagine your date naked sweety, that’ll break the ice, that will do it ! ”

It surely gets you focused on something else for a while or it will at least put a smile on your face…but is this advice sufficient to overcome your fears and sense of insecurity ?

0230ceca07853e5582452d40a2f15899

What if your friend says : “Well that’s my problem ! I feel naked the moment I find myself face to face with my date, I feel uncomfortable when they stare at me, I feel vulnerable and I’m afraid ! What can I do about that ?”

Here’s some advice inspired by Mis(s)behave Miranda in case of acute symptoms of insecurity :

Be vulnerable !

Pardon me ? Yes, you heard it very well my dear : your vulnerability might be your biggest asset. No need to hide anything ! You are your authentic you and you are expressing it ! You might aswell inspire and invite your date to do the same… just showing his true self, without any masks !

You are a real, genuine human, displaying your qualities and your flaws…You don’t pretend to be someone else. What you see is what you get…

Be  prepared !

You can’t leave everything to chance…A little preparation might be necessary…Having a plan B in mind, having some subjects in mind to avoid these awkward moments of silence….

Controle freak ? Perfectionist ? I know you tend to get nervous even when you are fully equipped for the job, you might be very passionate, you even might be the very best in what you are doing but you often sabotage yourself because of your anxiety and insecurity. You put a lot of pressure on yourself !

You freak out when things don’t go as planned or when something unexpected happens…You anxiously want to be in control…you are definitely not the one who will improvise when things go wrong…

Know it’s all about balance…Try to be more spontaneous in your interactions with your partner ! Don’t be so tensed. Loosen up !

 

Never focus on the negative !

Do you know someone who attracts weird situations continuously as if Murphy’s law were inspired by them,….they seem to be chased by bad luck constantly…Every doom scenario comes to pass…Disaster is always following their footsteps…

Don’t think too much about the things that can go wrong. Whatever you focus on grows ! Your negative imagery, your doubts and worries will leave you even more insecure. Put some positivity in yourself !

With your thoughts and words you give yourself commands (autosuggestions). If you are unconscious of your negative self-talk, your thoughts will turn into a belief and will start a life of their own. They will play in auto mode in the back of your head, constantly attracting bad vibes…Break the pattern !

Be careful what you wish for and don’t put spells on yourself !

miranda.gif

Ask advice !

You could do a role play with a friend and practise some good oneliners and jokes. You could ask them to interview you about a topic you are interested in or feel extremely excited and confident about !

You can ask them to be there as a support on the sidelines, as your back up in case of emergency…they can bring you back to senses, they can get your fire started, bring some welcome distraction to the party or scare your date away when he’s a creep !

original

“But what if I still make a complete fool out of myself…?”

Face your fears & do it anyway !

Do you really want to know if he’s mister Right…? Face your fears or face the regrets ! See it as a challenge. Be courageous ! Sharpen your senses and go for it !! And if at first you don’t succeed…brush yourself off and try again !

 

Always imagine a good outcome !

I guess I am repeating myself but… Learn to feel it for real baby !!! Focus on the desired outcome : change your vision until it feels good !

Influence your subconscious with the right impressions ! YES, IMPRESS IT ! You must make mental pictures of what you want and REPEAT them diligently but with ease, effortlessly and smoothly…

 

Rehearse your walk and talk and have fun improvising !!!

Phuro! Be inspired!

A little horsepower

“In the beginning was the word and the word was love and love was imagination. When love takes us through the sun-dappled garden of our imagination, no stalking horses can perturb the rainbow in our mind or fade out its bright colors reflecting in the blue sky of our memory.”

Summoning a dragon

This is the story about a boy and his pets, a tiger and a snake. Pets the boy already had since birth, but that he was obliged to separate !

They couldn’t get along, they couldn’t stand each other ! Even being in the same room was painful, so he had them moved, the one far away from the other.

One lived in the eastern side of the castle, the other in the west. The boy had to walk miles each day to feed them and to have a small talk at best !

Snake and tiger often talked bad about each other ! They always gossiped or were trying to belittle one another.

One day the boy had enough of it, he became sick of all their quarrels and fights ! He couldn’t stand their hate anymore, he just wanted to play and laugh !

That day he decided to visit neither tiger nor snake ! A message was send to both, telling the boy’s health was at stake !

9522185171_447c021365

The tiger started nervously walking back and forth on his isle.

“Snakes are sneaky snails !” the tiger said resentfully ! “Snake must have seduced the boy to keep him away from me !”

“She is probably up to no good”, the tiger thought, stroking his beard. “Maybe she’ll try to suffocate the boy !” He became furious and feared…

“The boy is in danger ! It is time for a fight ! I’ll be knocking at the snake’s door and I’ll kill her tonight !

ef5b07eb353aee0690662f2152065738--a-snake-marianne

The snake was rising in suspicion and thought about a plan to murder the tiger too.

“That tiger must think he is smart, believing he can keep me and the boy forever apart ! I’ll teach him a ssserious lesson sssoon, tonight I sssneak out and kill him at full moon”.

Both animals went on a mission to claim back their rightful position !

That night was a thriller, they both met each other somewhere in the middle… There they were… ready for a fight, angry looks on their face, each showing their might !

They were about to grab one another’s head, when they heard a cough coming out of a bed. They stopped their fight and looked dazzled. Next to their battle seemed to be the room where the boy was settled.

They decided to pause a while the fight, just to have a quick look at the boy and then end this matter once and for all tonight !

The boy opened his eyes and was amazed to see them both standing at his bed, they were holding his hands and praying God to restore his health.

The boy felt instantly better and gave a hug to both !

“Seeing you together as friends makes my heart full of joy ! You made my dream come true. This is a miracle !”, shouted the boy !”

Tiger and snake were now full of remorse, impressed by the boy’s precious love and incredible force.

The night the boy’s animals reconciled, a king was born with a dragon by his side !

Think of this as a window…

“All that you behold, though it appears without, it is within, in your imagination, of which this world of mortality is but a shadow.”

Blake

d514e5092dd04a9604e4ed6f83c5af27

The world is just a screen, where a movie is played upon that has been scripted in your imagination.

Your IMAGINATION is your window, your window is your mind.

In your inner eye you are able to see what you would like to be.

IMAGINATION is reality. The physical world is the shadow it leaves behind.

All limitions arise in your mind. You limit yourself !

Your awareness creates your circumstances. You are the only one who can change your world.

YES YOU ARE !

63f5c3c111b9e9682fe8b5e750cc5fb4

“Leave the mirror and change your face. Leave the world alone and change your conceptions of yourself. The reflection then will be satisfactory.”

Neville

The change that you would like to see in your world must first take place in your mind.

If you want the movie to change, you need to rescript it !

At its origin.

At its source !

AND YOU ARE THAT !

Visualisation

Visualisation is all about selecting the right mental images ! Using your imagination is very important in all creative processes !

You are about to do something that makes you fearful. Now you can tell your subconscious mind : “Don’t be afraid” or ou can make a mental picture of your fear and say “Don’t do that !”

tumblr_lt74iczjXo1qiz3j8o1_500

The subconscious will only see the picture and completely forget about the “don’t” and “not”, because these words mean nothing to it !

Mental image of what you don’t want + positive words = Low vibration, negative feeling, no positive result !

5752acb57892a25d704751c9843fb9b8

Mental image of what you want + negative words : Low vibration, negative feeling, no positive result !

d55e548853ab885c2c38ceeda0480bfe

Mental image of what you want + positive words : High vibration, positive feeling, positive result !

2e7ca6769f074be8d2a84da2847c5202

Just turn things around and focus on the result : if it doesn’t feel good, change your vision until it does !

You must influence your subconscious with the right impressions ! YES, IMPRESS IT ! You must make mental pictures of what you want and REPEAT them diligently but with ease, effortlessly…

dance

It’s about selecting your view, envisioning “who you want to be” or “what you want to do” and feel your way into it, untill it really feels that good and naturel that you are completely comfortable with the outcome !

So it is a matter of focus and attention and one of internalising and intention !

magic word

And if you have a friend who supports your vision, you are definitely lucky…

It was all a dream…

 

It was all a dream

An idea fueled with passion

and so many things

to feel excited about.

Too good to be true,

but too good to forget

a madman’s fantasy,

a far fetched reality.

But once shut down

the senses to this world

and silenced the riot in the body,

Once taken back the hijacked mind

that stole your desires away.

What you wanted to be without.

You saw within.

You became the creator.

And It was all imagination.

“I pursue this dream and carry on. I don’t dwell too much on the outside, I just focus on the inside.”

Conor McGregor

“Ideas only act if they are felt, if they awaken inner movement. Inner movement is conditionned by self motivation. Outer movement is conditionned by compulsion.”

Conor McGregor inspired me to write this little piece after he recently posted this beautiful video of his son’s christening party on Facebook. While many of you were focussing on his wealth and richness, all I saw was genuine happiness and a beautiful hashtag #itwasalladream.

Leave the mirror & change your face

“Stop trying to change the world since it is only the mirror.”

Neville

If it is your desire to have what you want, to be abundant, you have to see yourself as a millionaire, you have to be one, not become one ! If we stay focused on “becoming” someone or something, we will keep ourselves trapped in the idea of abundance, health, change in the future… Pushing it away from ourselves, keeping it at a distance ! The desire is the start to develop our vision in further detail in our imagination, but we have to take the other step and internalize the feeling of being healthy or abundant, that means feeling healthy or abundant NOW.

Creation is infinite and finished. That means all possibilities exist in the here and now. You can’t create you reality, you select yourself what comes to you. You simply have to allign your state of being with the thing that you want. If it is richness you want, you have to erase all feelings of lack, of poverty out of your consciousness and focus on the richness in life now. Even if in your environment there is nothing that affirms your vision, hold on to it and hold on to the feeling !

Only state of being matters or better said : “only state of being materializes”. Therefor keep your thoughts and emotions vibrating high so you can easily access what you want ! You have to start imposing your vision on your current reality.

Neville Goddard said : “Change the concept of yourself, your state of being to start creating the version you wish to experience. You are always creating, consciously or unconsciously whether you like it or not. Missing the mark is you using your power unconsciously. This is the real sin in the world. Your desire becomes a fact when you are  assuming the feeling of the wish fulfilled, that means not only mentally thinking OF it, looking AT it, but thinking FROM it, feeling immerzed in it ! That means ignoring what you see in the outer world and be focused consciously on your ideal, on what you wish to experience. You have to allow it in your world and firmly believe it although nothing in your world supports you in it. You see things as you are, remember that !

Give yourself, give your imagination enough reasons why you deserve to have it and then own it, claim it to be yours. Start thinking about the things you would be doing and what feeling it would give you !

15672549_1559509440733050_7874577471411916925_n

Let us reverse engineer the thing you want : let’s say you want to build a succesful business ! What is your vision ? How would your life be if you had all those things ? Could you envision yourself in that movie ? That would be awesome, would it ?

Now this is your vision, your dream. It’s good to know that this is your detailed vision of the future version of yourself, but if you stop here, your dream will always stay a dream ! Why ? Because it misses another necessary element ! You have to drop the desire entirely now and become what you want to be NOW ! How ? Believe that you already are the person that you want to be, that you already have the thing you desire. “Believing it” is to “be it” and “live it” ! Nail it firmly and claim it ! It is that simple !

Your subconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between an imagined state and a “real” one. What we project on our imagination and feel as already happening in the now, starts attracting the things we want in life !

What are you projecting consciously or unconsciously on the movie of your mind, in what kind of state are you normally in during the day : in sleep mode or completely awake, conscious of your thoughts, emotions and actions ? Are you off track or in full attraction mode ?

Bring the feeling of accomplishment IN the now. Start visualizing how life would be AFTER the accomplishment of your dream. Bring the future version of yourself in the past !! Who did you meet, where did you go, what did you see yourself doing ? Which version of yourself did you give to the world ? See the accomplishment already in the past, meaning it is done ! Focus on events that took place after your big accomplishment. Do this every morning and every evening when you are still in a fuzzy mode, before completely waking up and starting your day or the moment you feel you are going to fall asleep.

Be sure to remind yourself of the desired state during the day. How do you do that ? See how you are feeling at the moment ! Are you still focused on your goal ? Focused on what brings you excitement, joy, happiness ? Happy because you feel energized, alive, you feel the richness in life and every one is going to remind you of that today, all day and for the rest of your life ! Or are there still rests of your old self lingering around, old stuff where you put your attention on ? Die to the old self, and build a complete new version, it is possible, anything is possible !

The power of imagination makes us infinite. Phuro! Be inspired!
