Does Your Abundance Register?

You’ve probably heard about Gratitude Journals in the past, but now it’s time for the Abundance Register!

What’s that all about?

It’s about noticing the good things you have attracted or created in your life.  Real things… like the coin you found on the street, the bargain that came your way, the help you got to achieve something you wanted, easily.  Even things like getting to sleep in when you really needed it.

Why?

Because you are a creator, and taking note of these things will help you to realize how much goodness you can and do create for yourself on a daily basis.

So grab a notebook now, and write those things down daily.

And then give yourself a pat on the back for how good a creator you really are!

Breathing Is Receiving (Let the Good Things In)

When life gets stressful, we tighten up our mind, muscles and emotions in readiness for fight or flight.

This tightening up gives us a form of tunnel vision which is focused on the bad things that we are trying to fight off. It blocks our view of the good things which are available to us, so even if they are very near, they might as well not exist because we can’t see them or let them in.

So what can we do to let more of the good things in?

Breathing is the most natural and simple way.

Breathe consciously for a short while, whenever you think of it, when you are feeling bad and when you are feeling good as well.  It’s not about sucking in a huge lungful of air.  Instead, breathe slowly and deeply down into your belly, and imagine that breath filling your entire body right down to your toes, filling it.

Breathing is the most basic act of receiving on this planet.  When we can allow ourselves to breathe deeply and fully, we are allowing life, and we are allowing the awareness and flow of goodness in our lives.

How “Choose to Live!” Came To Be Written

It’s January the 17th, the 5th anniversary of my son Daniel’s death.  He took his own life at the age of 17.

It was a nightmare when the police came to the door and told me the news.  It’s one of those things which you cannot accept, and yet you have to.  It’s a ripping and tearing of your whole being.

After the funeral I came home and I didn’t know what I was going to do.  Then suddenly I knew that I had to get a notebook, and that I had to write.  I felt it was Daniel urging me on, and there was a real sense that this had to be done, fast.

As soon as I had the notebook, the words started to come.  First came all the chapter headings, then the content.  As I wrote, I imagined how the words would help readers to feel better about themselves and about their lives.  They would get moments of clarity, and feel relieved of burdens.  I could just imagine people saying “yes, exactly!” and smiling and feeling right about themselves.

This book has been a help to me in the years since, and I hope that it will help my readers too.  If you like it, please help me to get the word out.
