Double Chin be GONE!

Ok so I know this is out of the ordinary for My Art site but, I have to share things that I know people would want and it could help them. SO that being said, how would you like to lose weight by simply drinking a cup a day of coffee?

I am not joking and this is not a typo.

 

before and after

BEFORE                                                                                        AFTER

 

Ok so in literally 2 weeks I have lost weight, to the point where my face is thinner and my clothes are loose!!! AND the greatest part about it is that it isn’t full of chemicals! It is safe to use and helps curb cravings! Drink coffee with lots of water through out the day and within a week or two you will see massive results!! If however you don’t you can get your money back! And that I like because if a product isn’t what its cracked up to be we as the consumer should be able to.

2018 – This is your year!

So a month into 2018 and already its going by so fast. Now into February How are your goals looking? Have you started to get into the groove of things and setting up challenges to meet those goals?

Every year people get so excited because a new year means a new chance at obtaining that goal we have been putting off. But like most people once we get right into it the goal seems to take a regular back burner and we don’t end up doing what we set out to do on that great midnight strikes 12 promise.  Most common ones are getting fit or losing weight or quitting smoking.

I think if you plan these things out and not go out on a whim you have a better chance of the goal being obtained.

SO for every day you avoid that donut or walk for 30 mins write it down on your calender. Yes there will be that tempting donut you couldn’t resist but don’t give up! The next day you have a chance to start again. Make it count and once you start writing it down everyday it will become easier and easier to do.

I find that if you can visually see you are working towards something the easier it gets. Like for me if I want to do something I write it down and look at it everyday and ask myself if I have done it or am I just procrastinating?

Also make the goal an exciting thing, its not supposed to be a death sentence. Write a list of all the positives you will get out of it once its achieved put it on the fridge or somewhere you are faced with the decision you made daily. Let it be a constant reminder to keep yourself in check.

Not only that but mentally you have to really want it too, because no matter what if you are doing this for someone else it won’t work. It has to be for you only.

And lastly, don’t tell anyone you are going to do until its done. Nothing like having people eyeball every slip up you make (like eating the damn donut) when you don’t actually do what you said. You are already your own biggest critic so give yourself a break and keep your goals personal until it happens then surprise them with it! Because really this is just about you and no one else. Only you have yourself to keep track of, and it isn’t the responsibility of another person to keep you in check.

So if you want to do something, like that painting sitting in the corner getting dusty, ahem… then its best to set some time aside everyday to get that done. little by little it will if you keep at it!

Namaste,

Exhausted? How to stretch those hours into quality not quantity.

I often find myself taking on too many tasks and too many projects as they always seem to come in clusters. I feel as though I may not know when the next job comes as an illustrator so when a multitude of work comes my way I just can’t say no.

Typically I work late evening night hours as much as my body will physically allow, only to burn out and eventually become ill. So when is really a good time to stop working and be more productive at your job at home or in the office?

Well, I have started to use certain increments of time during the day or evening that it is set in stone that I set aside for my family and activities because really isn’t that who you are working for anyway? These time slots are not allowed to be broken they are a must a block of time to set aside that will not be broken.

If you don’t take those breaks for yourself, I find the creativity stops flowing and you become so exhausted that the quality of your work suffers as a result. Not to mention family members and friends wondering where you went to. So even if it is 20 mins to read that article that has been sitting on the table for weeks or just stopping to enjoy that cup of coffee or listen to your friends and families day can take huge advantages to your overall moral and health.

So even if it is 20 mins to read that article that has been sitting on the table for weeks or just stopping to enjoy that cup of coffee or listen/text to your friends and families day can take huge advantages to your overall moral and health.

Work is work and family is family and they cannot be replaced so remember that the next time you decide to work late to get in extra hours to buy that bigger home no one will ever see you in.  Remember what is really important, you, your health and your family.

 

Glass Half full

 

When you look at a glass that contains a liquid within it, do you look at it as half full or half empty?

This is an age old question of our own outlook on life. If we believe it to be half full then we are more likely to be positive and if we look at it as half empty then we look at it as a negative.

How about if I said to you, you should be happy to have a glass, never mind the clean water it contains. Now lets get to the thoughts which provoked these responses. When we are told as kids that we should be grateful for everything we have how much of that “what we have”, have we decided was a requirement to be happy? Depending on your parents financial gains we decide from young either we want more of what they had or better.

If our parents were not financially well off did we as kids feel ashamed of our family? Because we didn’t have the latest and greatest of the other kids in school? We decided some how because of what someone else had that they MUST be happy inour minds and from TV that those smiling faces enjoying the new beverage or the new trend that it is what makes people happy.

We decided that in order to get what they have we have to be better at everything. We need to work endless hours because we want it bad and if we show the everyone just how hard we work someone will eventually see this and reward our efforts. But what if our efforts are still not rewarded? What if instead we get fired? we lose our happiness?

Why do we define our happiness in the hands of someone else? Why can’t we just be happy now? who gave them the right to hold on to our happiness and decide when we could have it anyway?

We DECIDE what makes us happy, it isn’t about material things really is it? The fact that you opened your eyes to another day and can see, touch, smell and hear is reason enough to be happy. Now lets add the fact that you are able to read this, you have internet! So when life takes a turn we don’t like remember that ourselves provide the happiness in our lives we can change it or rewrite it or move or get another job, start a business, what ever it is. WE MAKE OUR SELF HAPPY by what we think and believe.

I am going to leave you with this amazing video it is life changing. > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0K_JK8IRJcQ&t=6s&index=18&list=PL5Ig3iuV1wT7SlSVnPKrvGpJfH__l59XG

Laws of life

 

Laws of life are simple yet can be a complicated balance act of  Being kind, being grateful and loving to all, even our self.  If we can remember these simple laws of life our outlook on life begins to shift. There in fact is no room for negative feelings because when we are grateful it already forces us to see the good around us.

When we go against things that are deeply embedded into our genetics and of our ancestors we change. We go out into the world and make a difference, not to the point of being well known, although some do. But nevertheless, we make marked differences to our family and friends near by and they in turn start to radiate that energy you are showing.

Our minds focus not so much on our own aches and pains  but to helping others and  being grateful. It becomes like a magnet and second nature and it is drawn back to us.

If we are always looking for more and never grateful for what life has provided for us which is basically what we think we deserve. It will up till now have in fact created the environment in which you are presently in.

I didn’t believe it before but now that I think about it hard and in non judgement without added excuses I yes have indeed put myself into the lifestyle I thought I deserved. But now I see that I do have the power to change it, I do deserve to be happy and to want to see more then what is presented to me.

That may be hard if you are dealing with guilt or a tragic past you may think that this is what you deserve and even if you are not happy remain because it is what you believe you can only get.

But once you start to think outside the box and be grateful for everything and are not accepting that situation you are in (because of outside factors) and realize it can be changed, things will indeed change. Remember however the speed in which you think you deserve the change or are ready to accept it is ultimately in coalition with you.

Even Despite the fact that we stretch ourselves out to help others and even to the point we haven’t had time to care about our self, only back fires we end up neglecting the very source of the core that is needed to bring forth these feelings.

Being taken advantage of or even disregarded because no matter what, you are showing people what they can get away with. If you never learn to say no then when you want to do things for you, no time will be left.

The laws of life requires a balance. In the words of the wise,’ Be the reflection of the world you want to see.’ So if you want to relax and be at peace you need to carve out that peace. The dishes can wait, or that friend that needs help with something will have to understand that a half hour to read your favorite book or listen to your favorite CD is a must.

Meditation and clearing your head of all the clutter to start fresh and focus to be calm to tackle what ever comes that day is also I find a life saver. If you have never tried it, please do. 20 mins a day  keeps the mind crisp and clear and at ease, which is essential for heavy jobs such as an entrepreneur or start up. Moms and who ever you are, we all need it.

There is nothing wrong with taking time out for you briefly to regroup and focus on our loved ones among the daily chores.

But if you are having trouble thinking of reasons to be grateful for life think about this, being able to get up in the morning is more then enough reason to be thankful for life. It is a start and we can go from there,  if we can see, smell, touch, we have clothes or a roof on our head all good reasons to be thankful and grateful for life.

If we can even in the worst day be grateful for something we can shift our life to the one we would like to see. Whether it be business adventures or any other dream or ambition it all starts with these basic laws of life, be grateful, be kind and love.

Practice it at first and after a while your mind will shift and it will be an automatic response when life throws daggers at us.

11:11 power

I am not sure if you are aware of what today is? Did you know that it is a special day?elizabethcampbellearth-eye

Numerologists for example, 11 would reduce to two by adding the digits, but 11 is considered to be “higher” version of two. 11 is “highly charged” and “difficult to handle” according to numerologists who believe integrating your internal number is important to self-revelation. To them, 11 represents illumination and sensitivity.

Others Believe it is an Angel Number and has deep spiritual meaning.

All of us, every day, see countless numbers, however, if you started seeing 1111 very frequently and seemingly everywhere, maybe you realize it’s not a coincidence, but a sign or something trying to communicate with us. And you are right, they are.

These numbers bring a new beginning, independence, expression of individuality, they are bearers of the initiative, courage and strength, creativity, happiness and fulfillment. In the greatest intensity, these numbers can bring a total restart or rebirth.

This number can also be a confirmation of an answer if you decide to send positive love and energy. Seeing that number confirms it has been sent.

The number one is the number of manifestation, unwavering faith, intuition, motivation, and symbolizes the source that connects us. One universe, one world, one powerful force that materializes our thoughts, and thus fulfills our wishes and desires.

SO today is quite special because manifesting positively will bring it forth your desires and thought processes of bringing the universe to you what you are truly meant to have.

Thoughts become things. So make sure you steer clear of negative thoughts today. Keep your focus on positive life and health and love.

Whatever it may be, go and make the most of this day.

Programmed… Are you?

A magician is an amazing presenter, he or she presents something to you while you are looking at what they have in fact want you so see. they however are training you to watch one hand while the other is doing something else.

Years ago I took an online psychology course. They gave us a video to watch and I did. I did not see the changes being placed right in front of my eyes because I was too busy watching the guy talking that I did not even notice until I was told to watch it again only look for certain things changing around in the video did I see it. I was amazed! How did I not notice this taking place right in front of me, and then it hit me… we are all trained to believe to a degree the world in which it is presented to us. here is a video to show you what I mean; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=voAntzB7EwE

 

Are you looking through glasses in which the presenter wants you to see? How was your childhood? did you get trained to look at life with the glass half full or was it hard and always half empty?

Retraining the brain to look beyond what is presented is challenging but not impossible. Everyday you are presented with life choices and people in front of you, decide if I am going to just accept what life gives me or am I going to be determined to change it. People in my life am I going to just accept the things they give me all the negativity or down play of my lifes ambitions or am I going to change them.

This is ultimately your decision to make. Decide today to make your life a positive one. You hold the keys, so now its time to take them into action.

Namaste
