Many of us have heard of the Law of Attraction and how it can be used to manifest Lasting Love and Meaningful relationships. However, how many of us have really tested it out and manifested the relationship we wanted? Allow me to share this story as it is one of the greatest success stories of my life.

In March 2000, I came out of a 5 year dysfunctional relationship which really drained me and left me jaded about relationships. It wasn’t really a question of who’s fault it was, I guess we were just not compatible for each other. Despite putting in a lot of effort to make the relationship work, it had always felt like we brought out the worst in each other and therefore had to end a bittersweet realtionship.

Over the next few months, I opened myself to healing and “took a break” from dating and partying. Synchronistically, somehow Rangy Gage’s audio program “Prosperity” landed into my possession and it taught me about the Law of Attraction and manifesting the dream relationship I always wanted. Initially I was skeptical about it but by faith I decided to put the law to the test. Moreover, at that time, I was ready to release all the old painful patterns of “getting into the wrong relationships”. (I know some of you can relate to this)

Here’s what I did. I wrote out on a piece of paper all the things I wanted in my dream relationship. I wrote them in 3 main categories:

  1. How does my dream girl look like
  2. What are the characteristics that I’m looking for in my girlfriend
  3. How are we going to complement each other

I wrote them down in point form, describing in detail. After which, I pasted the list next to my bed and I read it once before I went to sleep and once after I woke up. I did this everyday without fail.

Here’s the good part… (more…)

I got the following from Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich. This message was taken off the Power Talk audio series by Anthony Robbins.

Somehow, in the midst of making money and attracting wealth, maybe we should also be thinking of how we can increase our capacity of accumulating wealth. Maybe this might sound a little deep but bear with me here. If a person hasn’t learnt to BE wealthy, even if he / she earns or makes a lot of money (a good example here would be lottery winners), it would still be spent and the person goes back to the original ‘broke’ self. This is what T Harv Eker in his book Secrets of the Millionaire Mind calls the financial thermostat.

So, while we are making money, perhaps it would be useful to also raise our financial thermostat, to be able to increase our capacity to hold wealth. Therefore, I would like to take this opportunity to present to you the 12 things that constitutes real riches.

  1. A positive mental attitude
  2. Sound physical health
  3. Harmony in human relationships
  4. Freedom from fear
  5. The hope of future achievement
  6. The capacity for applied faith
  7. Willingness to share one’s blessings with others
  8. To be engaged in the labour of love
  9. An open mind towards all subjects and all people
  10. Complete self discipline
  11. Wisdom in which to understand people
  12. Financial security

Notice that the positive mental attitude and the rest comes first and money being the last on the list. Guess money as an energy gets attracted to us when all-of-the-above is achieved. 😉

Have Fun Y’all!

The following is a “healthy food hot list” consisting of the 29 food that will give you the biggest nutritional bang for you caloric buck, as well as decrease your risk for deadly illnesses like cancer, diabetes and heart disease. Along with each description is a suggestion as to how to incorporate these power-foods into your diet.

01. Apricots

The Power: Beta-carotene, which helps prevent free-radical damage and protect the eyes. The body also turns beta-carotene into vitamin A, which may help ward off some cancers, especially of the skin. One apricot has 17 calories, 0 fat, 1 gram of fiber. Snacks on them dried, or if you prefer fresh, buy when still firm; once they soften, they lose nutrients.

02. Avocados

The Power: Oleic acid, an unsaturated fat that helps lower overall cholesterol and raise levels of HDL, plus a good dose of fiber. One slice has 81 calories, 8 grams of fat and 3 grams of fiber. Try a few slices instead of mayonnaise to dress up your next burger. (more…)

Today has been a really hectic day, with lots of things to do, places to go to, people to meet and deadlines. Sooooooooo much tension. If only I had done one of these today, I might have felt less overwhelmed. *Sign*

However, better late than never……… Therefore, I hope that this following post would be one that is useful to you too.

7 Quick Tips to Relieve Stress RIGHT NOW! 

1.       Take a 1 minute Breathing Break 

Watch the clock’s second hand while you breathe deeply and slowly for 1 minute. Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth at half speed. You’ll be surprised how much tension is released. 

2.       Take a walk 

Exercise is one of the best remedies for stress.  It increases the amount of endorphins in your brain, helping you to relax, calm down and remember the good things in life. 

3.       Have a Vision Break 

Look at far objects, especially greenery, releases tension and eye strain. 

4.       Talk it out! 

Share your current concern with someone else. Being heard and understood is crucial to relieving stress. 

5.       Write it down. 

Releasing your concerns, stresses on paper can be very therapeutic. As the saying goes, the more you pen on paper, the less you keep in your head. 

6.       Smile 

Look up 45° and give yourself an ear-to-ear grin. When you are smiling, endorphins are released into your system. In this position, unhappy and negative thoughts disappear. 

7.       Finally, when absolutely necessary and you cannot hold it in anymore, STAND UP FOR YOURSELF! 

By asserting your rights you enhance your self-esteem and relieve stress.  Whether you are at work, at home or making a complaint in a shop, make your point politely but firmly.
Prepare what you want to say in your mind;
Maintain steady eye contact, without staring;
State your case firmly in a steady voice without shouting or sounding apologetic;
Avoid seeming confrontational by showing that you are prepared to listen to the other person’s viewpoint and to compromise

If you noticed, my nickname is OysTeR. Wondering why it is so? Please then, let me share with you this poem about The OysTeR. It very much describes a part of me and speaks of a mindset that I believe many should adopt. Enjoy!!!

The OysTeR

There once was an oyster, Whose story I tell,
Who found that some sand, Had got into his shell.

It was only a grain, but it gave him great pain.
For oysters have feelings, Although they’re so plain.

Now, did he berate, the harsh workings of fate
That had brought him, To such a deplorable state?

Did he curse at the government, Cry for election,
And claim that the sea should, Have given him protection?

‘No,’ he said to himself, As he lay on a shell,
Since I cannot remove it, I shall try to improve it.

Now the years have rolled around, As the years always do,
And he came to his ultimate, Destiny stew.

And the small grain of sand, That had bothered him so
Was a beautiful pearl, All richly aglow.

Now the tale has a moral, for isn’t it grand
What an oyster can do, With a morsel of sand?

What couldn’t we do, If we’d only begin
With some of the things, That get under our skin.
I hope you enjoyed that! Hope it gave you just the little bit more inspiration to Persevere on with that which you are striving to achieve. My Mission Statement: “Creating a Difference in the World, One Life At A Time.”
