Never Give Up!

By June 4, 1940, Nazi Germany had already rolled over Poland, Belgium, France and much of Europe and was now setting its eyes on England. The British had just completed the evacuation of its Allied troops from Dunkirk, France, and its people were frightened, anticipating a German invasion at any moment.

Prime Minister Winston Churchill, seeking to reassure his people, went to the House of Commons and stood before the packed chamber to make a nationally-broadcast address.

“Even though large tracts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Gestapo and all the odious apparatus of Nazi rule, we shall not flag or fail,” told his rapt audience. “We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France. We shall fight on the seas and oceans. We shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air. We shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches. We shall fight on the landing grounds. We shall fight in the fields and in the streets. We shall fight in the hills. We shall never surrender!”

England, with the help of the Allies, went on to defeat the seemingly unstoppable German war machine and saved the world from Nazi domination. As Churchill proved, with the right attitude, anything is possible. You can even change the world.

Whether your goal is to further your career, succeed in love and romance, become a sports champion, gain fame and notoriety, lose weight, quit smoking or drinking or any other personal ambition, staying motivated and keeping your attention focused on your ultimate aspiration is critical. Becoming distracted or letting failure derail your plans will never let you get what you want.

The only way to win is to keep on trying. As basketball superstar Michael Jordan put it, “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

In this article, you will find 70 tips to keep you on track so that you can continue to strive to achieve your dream despite any setback, any failure, any distraction, and any mistake. In the words of American industrialist Henry Ford, “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.”

1. Worst Case Scenario – At the start of the day, think about the absolute worst thing that could happen. How likely is it that things would get so bad? Probably not very. Remind yourself that even if the worst occurs, you have what it takes to overcome any situation, no matter how terrible.

2. It’s the Journey, Not the Destination – Living in the moment is the best source of motivation you will ever find. Enjoy the day to day experience of living your life, both when things are going well and when you are dealing with problems. It will give you a better appreciation of who you are and what you can contribute to the world around you.

3. Power Up! – Success requires a lot of energy. To get what you want, you’ll need the physical strength to achieve it. Take care of your body, exercise regularly, eat right and eliminate processed foods, fast foods and other toxins from your environment. This will strengthen your body, your mind and also your will, and give you the endurance you need to do whatever you want to accomplish. When you feel better, you’ll be better!

4. Today Is All You Can Influence – Accomplishing long term goals is a moment by moment activity. You can’t change what has happened in the past, but you can influence what will happen in the future by focusing on achieving the goals you set for yourself each day. Do the very best you can with what you have to work with right now. If you do, the future will take care of itself.

5. Be Inspired Passion — People who don’t care, don’t succeed. Passion is one part emotion and one part commitment. If you have committed but no passion, your work will be dull. If you have passion, but no commitment, your work will be undirected. But when the two come together and you bring real passion to what you do each day, there can be no stopping you.

6. Create a Motivational Environment – Your workplace needs to inspire you, whether it’s an office, a playing field, or wherever you are going to spend the biggest part of your day. Make it a place that you will want to look forward to going. Make sure it’s always neat, organised and trash- and clutter-free. Personalise your space with family photos that make you smile or a small plant. Include motivational triggers that will remind you of your goals and dreams and inspire you to keep striving to achieve them.

7. Your Word Is Your Bond – Living up to the promises you make, both big and small, is what defines you in the eyes of other people. Always stand by your words and take what you promise others with the utmost seriousness. This will improve your personal and professional reputation and also motivate you to get things done. By locking yourself into living up to your verbal commitments, you can create the inspiration you need to live up to the biggest promises you make to yourself: Achieving your ultimate goals.

8. Share Your Knowledge with Others – When you share what you know with others, you will create new confidence in yourself, especially when you see other people achieve their goals with your help. When we help other people, it also can create clarity in your own mind about where your true talents lie and what you are capable of achieving.

9. Nurture Positive Habits – About 80 % of the things we do each day are habitual, meaning we do them without thinking about them. Developing good habits and breaking bad habits will allow you to spend more than half your time working toward your goals on autopilot. Make a list of the successful habits that you need to develop, then train yourself to start performing them daily until they become second nature.

10. Jump Out of Bed – Begin your day with a flourish and that intensity can follow you the rest of your day. Give yourself a great reason to get out of bed every morning, then attack the day with a high level of passion and intensity. Every day holds at least one exciting thing. Ask yourself, “What will today’s be?”

11. Use Measurable Objectives – You can accomplish any goal by breaking it down into a series of smaller steps. Set a long-term goal for yourself, then create milestones to measure how close you are getting to achieving it each day, week and month. Mark your milestones down on a calendar and hang it somewhere that you will see it each day. Celebrate victories and course-correct when you fall behind your objectives.

12. The Power of In-TEN-sity – You can do anything for 10 minutes, right? Whenever you are feeling tired, beaten or worn out, or are facing an unpleasant task, commit to working intensely for just another ten minutes. Usually, by the time the ten minutes are up, you will have found a new solution or something else to inspire you to keep going. Pushing yourself to get started can give you the momentum to push past obstacles.

13. A Mighty Oak Comes from a Tiny Acorn – Remind yourself that the small tasks you perform each day are leading toward your ultimate objective. Focus not just on what you are doing, but why you are doing it. What will be the long-term result of the thousands of tiny short-term tasks you perform each day? You can motivate yourself during the “small stuff” by thinking about how they will shape you as a person.

14. Be Grateful – Say “thank you” more often than you do now. People appreciate it when you appreciate them. Being grateful creates humility, and humility leads to grace, which is a fullness of the heart. By practising gratitude until it becomes second nature, the list of things in your life that you are grateful for will grow larger each day. Gratitude is also the opposite of complaining. So being positively grateful, you can avoid the negativity of complaining.

15. Use Web Research to Make Yourself Better – One of the greatest things about living in the 21st Century is that you have access to virtually unlimited resources right at your fingertips via the Internet. During free moments, go online to look for motivational blogs, forums, articles and other resources you can use to get tips on living a happier, more productive life. Bookmark the places you like best so you can return to them whenever you need inspiration.

16. Prep for Success – Whenever there’s a big job ahead of you, get ready by doing all the advance work you can ahead of time. Gather the tools and resources you will need and set them into place so they are ready when you need them. The very act of preparing can reduce the anxiety of being unprepared. Plus, you will be able to dive right in and get started without stalling when it’s time to get the job done.

17. Clarify Your Thoughts by Giving a Speech – It often helps to work through a problem by pretending to give a speech on the subject. This requires you to frame the problem in a recognisable structure: Outline what the problem is, what’s causing it, what are the possible solutions, and which solution you recommend. Not only will it help you find ways to work through problems, but you will already be prepared whenever somebody asks your opinion on the subject.

18. Make It Easy to See Your Goals – If your goals are hidden under a pile of papers or stuffed into a drawer, it will be harder for you to stay focused on them. Make your targets highly visible: Print up colourful signs or write them on Post-Its and leave them around your workplace, car and home. Set up your Outlook to send you daily reminders to keep you focused. Do whatever you can to keep your goals in the forefront of your attention.

19. Don’t Forget to Relax – Nobody can succeed if they are stressed out and anxious all the time. Take an occasional “breather” by using deep breathing techniques to relax your mind and body.

Inhale deeply and slowly through your nose, then exhale slowly through your mouth, pushing all the air out of your lungs. Repeat this three times and the additional oxygen it pushes into your bloodstream will help you relax and achieve mental clarity.

20. Keep Your Gas Tank Full – What happens if you drive around all day without ever stopping for gas? In the same way, you eventually will run out of fuel if you don’t give yourself the revitalisation you need to keep going. Schedule breaks at regular intervals to have a leisurely cup of tea or coffee, take a brisk walk outside, or call or text a friend to check in on how they are doing. You will return to your work refreshed and re-energised.

21. Optimise Your Working Environment – A great working environment is defined by three things: It’s a place where you can be proud of what you do; It’s a place where you enjoy who you work with, And it’s a place where you trust the people you work for. If any of these three elements are missing from your work, it’s going to be harder for you to achieve your goals and it may be time to consider making a change.

22. Fake It ‘Til You Make It – If you don’t always feel motivated, act as if you are motivated and you can create the desired feeling. Once you’ve gotten the ball rolling, you will find yourself genuinely engaged in your work.

23. Be a Doer Not a Thinker – It’s easy to overthink a problem and lose your momentum or inertia. This process sometimes referred to as “paralysis by analysis”, can be dangerous because it can sidetrack you from your objectives. Be a person of action and don’t be afraid to make decisions. Mistakes are going to be made, but you can learn from these mistakes so that you can do a better job next time. The only way not to succeed is to not act. Indecision leads to a disaster every time.

24. Enter into a Contract with Yourself – A contract is a legally binding document that sets a defined set of requirements on both parties. Enter into a contract with yourself that requires you to achieve your objectives within a set period of time. Write an actual contract, sign it, date it and put it somewhere safe. The knowledge that such a binding contract exists can help keep you motivated toward achieving your goals.

25. When You Get Stuck, Aim for Small Victories – You can keep your forward momentum going even when you get stuck on a problem by targeting tiny triumphs. Accomplishing quick, easy goals generates positive feelings that you can use to keep you moving past obstacles and toward your ultimate objective. You will be inspired to keep repeating that satisfying experience of crossing yet another task off your list.

26. Rewards Matter – Psychology tells us that humans respond most productively when there is the promise of a reward at the end of a given task. Create rewards for yourself for achieving your short- term objectives. They don’t have to be grand, expensive prizes. Find affordable, healthy rewards that you will appreciate. When you know there is a tangible reward at the end of your day, it’s often enough to keep you going even when you don’t want to.

27. Visualise the Payoff – Visualisation exercises help create the proper mindset for success. Take the time to focus on what your life will be like once you achieve your objective. How will you feel? What will other people think about you? Will there be physical, emotional and psychological rewards for reaching your goal? Put yourself in that picture and it can keep you inspired as you work toward achieving your ultimate objective.

28. De-Complicate Complicated Tasks – If there is a particularly complicated task lying ahead of you, it can seem overwhelming and unachievable. But if you break that task into a series of simple, uncomplicated steps, you can remove the stress and focus on achieving only the next simple task in front of you. As you move through each simple task, it will motivate you to keep going.

29. Use Positive Self-Reinforcement – Have you ever noticed that an employee or co-worker will work harder after they’ve been recognised them for doing a good job with a pat on the back or some sort of public recognition. Use that same type of positive reinforcement to motivate yourself. Recognise when you’ve done something extraordinary and take pride in your work. It will make you more likely to work even harder next time.

30. Acknowledge Negative Feelings, But Don’t Hold On to Them – It’s not healthy to suppress negative thoughts or let bad feeling bottle up inside you. When you are having negative thoughts or feelings, it’s okay to acknowledge them. But it’s also necessary to release them. You will accept a negative feeling if you ignore it or let it keep eating away at you. Recognise them for what they are, give yourself a few minutes to let yourself experience them, then move on.

31. Use Checklists – Checklists are useful in keeping yourself on task and not skipping or missing any steps. Before you being a task, break it down into a series of steps and then use those steps as the basis for your checklist. As you move through the task, put a check mark next to the steps you’ve accomplished and move on to the next task on your list. This will help you move through the job smoothly and efficiently.

32. Pay Attention to Opportunities – There are always two ways of looking at things: Something can be either an obligation or an opportunity. Problems can be either setbacks or learning experiences. Instead of thinking, “It’s my job to do …”, approach tasks with the mindset of “This is an opportunity for me to …” That way you will do things because you want to, not because you feel you have to.

33. Clarify Your True Desires – What is it you truly want? Clarifying your real objectives makes it easier for you to achieve them because you don’t waste time chasing secondary or tertiary objectives. If you aren’t sure what you want, answer this question:
“If you never had to worry about earning money for the rest of your life, what would you do with your life?” The answer is your true desire.

34. Create Energy Flow in Your Body – You can’t have mental, emotional and physical energy if you are sedentary all the time. Make it a point to stand up and move around frequently. Keep your heart pumping, your muscles loose and your mind sharp by standing, stretching, walking and moving. It’s the best way to keep energised, even better than a cup of coffee or a power drink. Plus, it will help you sleep better at night.

35. Surround Yourself With People Who Share Your Passions– Enthusiasm is contagious, so when you are around people who are passionate about the same things you are, it’s easier to remain motivated toward achieving your goals. Don’t waste time with naysayers or negative people. Seek out friends, co-workers and acquaintances who share your goals and interests and who will be supportive of your efforts to achieve them.

36. Seek Out the Answers to Secrets – Success leaves clues. Follow these clues to learn the secrets successful people have used to stay motivated. Ask questions. Seek out advice. In most cases, successful people will be more than happy to share what they know with you and are generous with their wisdom.

37. Procrastination Is Your Enemy – In the groundbreaking motivational guide “Success through a Positive Mental Attitude”, Napoleon Hill famously interjected “Do it now!” as a rallying cry for successful people. Never delay or procrastinate or your opportunities may be lost. Your time is the one thing you can never get back. Treat your time like it’s a valuable commodity.

38. “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” – Obnoxious as it was, that song from the 1980s carried a powerful message. Happiness is something you choose, not something that happens to you. When you are enjoying your life and your work, you will approach challenges with vigour rather than with dread. You will be energised to succeed, and all it takes is making up your mind to be happy.

39. Don’t Keep Your Goals to Yourself – Open up to other people about what it is you want to accomplish. This creates a support system that you can rely upon for encouragement when you need it. It’s also harder to go back on the promises you make to yourself when you know other people are expecting you to keep them.

40. Focus on Positivity and Tune Out Negativity – It’s always easier to find excuses or reasons something won’t work, but that kind of thinking never created anything great. It’s okay to acknowledge flaws, but don’t let them be your sole focus. Instead, keep a positive attitude and truly believe that you can overcome any obstacle, achieve anything you truly desire and become the person you were meant to be.

41. Continually Challenge Yourself – When you reach plateaus, bust through them by continually challenging yourself to do more and to work harder. Don’t rest on earlier successes. Discover what you can do to take it to the next level so you can reach your ultimate objective more quickly.

42. Prepare Yourself for the Day that Lies Ahead of You – Rather than diving into the deep end, ease yourself into your day by thinking about what lies ahead, analysing the challenges you can face, and visualising how you can succeed. In the same way that stretching helps prevent injuries when exercising, preparing mentally for your workday can increase your productivity, prevent you from being stressed, and ultimately help you progress toward your goals.

43. Use FIDO – The US Marines have a saying that goes, “Forget It and Drive On”. When you make a mistake or encounter something negative, don’t get caught up on it or dwell on it too long. Wallowing in the past won’t help make your future better, it will only delay you and make you more negative. If mistakes were made, pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and start all over again.

44. Don’t Let Negative People Affect You – Not everybody is going to be as motivated as you. Every day, you will encounter people who have a negative attitude toward life. Don’t let them get to you. You may not be able to change the way they think, but you can change the way you think about them. Share your dreams and ambitions with people who will appreciate them. Don’t waste your time with those who aren’t going to support you.

45. Treat Every Day as if It’s Your First Day – Remember the enthusiasm and curiosity you brought to the first day of school or the first day of a new job? Sustain that type of interest and ambition every day and you will continually strive to succeed and impress other people. This is especially helpful when you are facing an unpleasant task. Act as if you are auditioning for your current position and you will find that you will be giving it your best effort.

46. View Mistakes as “Teaching Moments” – Everybody makes mistakes. But not everybody learns from them. When you mess up, think about what you did wrong and promise yourself that you will do better next time. Set a time limit for analysing your mistake – a few minutes or so – then move on and never dwell on it again.

47. Immune Yourself Against “Destination Disease” – Destination disease is another term for complacency. For some people, when they achieve their goal they become comfortable. This prevents them from growing and achieving more. But not you. Never be satisfied, even after you achieve your ultimate objectives. There’s always more that life offers. It’s up to you to go out and get it.

48. Be Organised In Everything You Do – Organisation makes your life easier. Disorder causes distraction and delay. Why do you think the military is so compulsive about organisation? Your workspace, schedule, activities and everything else in your life need to be as organised as possible so you can stay on task without losing momentum and commitment. Clarity and orderliness allow your mind to focus on more important issues because you don’t have to worry about the small stuff.

49. View Your Life as a Movie – Hollywood movies have happy endings because somebody sat down and wrote them that way. Script your own life, giving it the happy ending that you want. Then stick to the script. You may have to rewrite some parts as you go along, but if you follow your life’s screenplay, you can arrive at where you want to be when the credits roll.

50. Smile – Psychological studies have shown that people who make an effort to smile are happier than people who let situations dictate their emotions. Keep a smile on your face as much as possible and other people will be more comfortable with you, will like you more, and will want to help you achieve your goals. Your smile may even be infectious!

51. practice Self-Discipline – Discipline is the ability to do what needs to be done even when you don’t feel like doing it. Train yourself to separate your feelings and emotions from the job and just do what needs to be done. Soon, it will become second nature and you will always have the self-discipline to keep moving forward toward your goals.

52. Find Inspiration in Other People – Turn to inspirational books, movies, speeches, courses and other resources to keep yourself motivated. There are many successful people who have made it their goal to help other people improve their lives. Take advantage of this generosity by seeking out inspiring personal stories about other people’s accomplishments.

53. Look at Problems from Different Perspectives – When facing challenges, call upon the knowledge and experience you already have accumulated in your life. Ask yourself, “What do I know about this problem that already works?” “What do I know won’t work?” and “What don’t I already know and still need to learn to resolve this issue?” This helps you approach problems from different angles and use your life history to work through them.

54. Calculate Your “Hours of Power” – Different people are more energised at certain times of the day than others. For example, there are “morning people” and “night people”. Keep track of your energy level every hour for a week, writing down on a notepad how energised you are on a scale of 1 to 10. At the end of the week, look for patterns where your energy was the highest each day. Those are the “hours of power” when you can be most productive at working toward your goals.

55. Don’t Get Hung Up on Money – Most people think of money as the way we keep score of success, but this is a flawed viewpoint. There are lots of rich people who aren’t happy and lots of people without money who are successful. Money won’t buy you true happiness or even success. So don’t think that you are going to find contentment once you achieve a certain income level or bank account.

56. Change the Scenery Occasionally – Getting away for a while is a great way to recharge your batteries and get you ready to be more energised so you can keep fighting for what you want when you return. Plan a trip someplace you have never been before and soak in the scenery. Take a relaxing vacation from your worries and ambitions, even if it’s just for a day or even a few hours. You will return refreshed, rested and stronger than ever before.

57. Be an Example for Others – Provide positive support for the people around you and live your life as if you are in a fishbowl and somebody is always watching you. This will prevent you from making stupid mistakes and experiencing unnecessary setbacks. It will also inspire other people to be more like you, which is rewarding on its own.

58. Constantly Seek Ways to Improve – There’s always something you can do to make the outcome better next time. Find it.

59. Build Your Foundation First – Any structure is only as strong as the foundation upon which it is built. Your life is no exception. Make sure you have a firm sense of values and purpose and you can withstand any difficult times life throws at you.

60. Be an Explainer, Not a Complainer – Avoid the temptation to blame others for mistakes or shirk responsibility. Instead, when you make an error, have the maturity to admit it, figure out what went wrong and move on.

61. Learn from Other People’s Mistakes – When others err, learn from them the same way you learn from your own mistakes. This has the double benefit of providing you with valuable lessons and not having to deal with the “blame game” and the consequences of making errors.

62. Become a Collector of Motivational Quotes – Some people collect stamps. Others collect exotic beer cans or fishing lures. Make your hobby something that will help keep you on track toward achieving your goals. Collect motivational quotes and keep them in a file that you can access whenever you need inspiration.

63. Set Your Alarm 30 Minutes Earlier – People complain that there are never enough hours in the day to accomplish everything they need to do, but here’s a great way to “find time”. You will be amazed at how productive you can be when you simply get out of bed a half hour earlier than you normally do.

64. Avoid Comparing Yourself to Other People – Everybody is unique. No two people had the exact same experiences, opportunities and choices. While it’s helpful to find inspiration in other successful people, it’s not productive to compare yourself negatively to them.

65. Use Affirmations to Shut Down Negativity – Often, negative thoughts can get in the way of what we want to accomplish. But you can silence that tiny negative voice in your head by shouting over it with affirmations whenever it starts speaking to you.

66. Keep a Journal – Every day, write down what you did to further yourself toward your objectives. This will motivate you throughout the day so that you will have something to add to your journal later.

67. Embrace Change – The only thing we know for certain is that nothing is for certain. When change happens, don’t resist it. Instead, embrace it as the next chapter in your life. As long as you are motivated to achieve your success, change can never set you back very far. And it often offers an opportunity.

68. Don’t Get Obsessed with Perfection – Getting it right is important, but trying to get it perfect every time will only delay and distract you on your path toward success. Do you very best, but don’t expect perfection every time. Even the best hitters in baseball only connect with the ball once every three times at the plate.

69. Ask for Help When You Need It – No man is an island. Everybody occasionally needs the help of other people in order to succeed. Don’t be too proud to ask others for help. That’s what your support system is there for in the first place.

70. It’s Not Always All About You – Everybody’s life has its ups and downs. Going it alone won’t make it any easier. Let other people into your life so you can celebrate your successes and make your failure s more endurable. Nobody is an island. Your life touches many other people. Be aware of this and let it help make your journey easier.

In this guide, we have provided 70 tips designed to motivate you to never give up on your dreams and ambitions. But the truth is that nobody can motivate anybody to do anything. The only thing a person can do is offer them the inspiration and incentive they need to motivate themselves.

The 70 techniques described here can all be boiled down to three keys to successful living:

Being willing to leave your comfort zone

Not being afraid to make mistakes

Not indulging in self-limiting thinking.

As has been stated repeatedly, mistakes are going to happen. You can prepare as much as possible, but the unexpected will always occur sooner or later. Successful people don’t let setbacks and obstacles stop them from moving toward their ultimate objectives. Instead, they continually commit themselves to happiness and positive thinking, no matter what happens.

By keeping your eye on the prize and daring to dream big, you can achieve anything you want in life.

Good luck!

Archangel Haniel – The Power of Synchronicity


Hello my beloved ones.

Today you are asked to work on being more consciously aware of synchronicity in your life.

Synchronicity is akin to an angel alarm, alerting you to pay attention to what is unfolding and what doorways are opening up to you. Synchronicity can come by way of numbers, colours, music, experiences, people, particular words or even particular dreams.

Synchronicity is when everything moves into alignment. Like a bridge that had its arms raised, but is now lowered, to allow you passage. Synchronicity is when everything has come together, joined up in unison so you can see the way forward.

Doorways of opportunity exist all the time and each time you experience synchronicity, recognise this as confirmation that you are advancing, you are being helped.

During periods of synchronicity, try to move into the energy of what is being conveyed to you. If for example you keep seeing numbers 17:17 or 71:71, 4:44 44:88 or number sequences 132, 231, 123, move into the presence of the numbers given to you during meditation. Or hold the visualization as you prepare to go to sleep.

This will enable you to receive guidance and experience a shift in your awareness. Sometimes with numbers, rather than a specific message, they may be source codes that help change your energy frequencies. By meditating upon these synchronistic symbols, you will open up your pathway. Allow your energy to flow freely today, and be open to the world of synchronicity.

Ascended Master Lady Nada – A Different Perspective

Today, I would like to offer my help so you can see your life from a different perspective.

Try, if you can, to perceive and imagine yourself sat way upon a beautiful white fluffy cloud.

As you look down upon the world, you can see nothing but rows, upon rows of gardens. Each garden has a pathway that leads you out into the wilderness. Call upon Archangel Uriel and ask for your own personal garden to be revealed to you.

Allow yourself to perceive, see and sense the energies of your own garden.

What do you perceive, feel and see?

Do you see a garden that has been well cared for? Is it well planned, orderly, are there beautiful colourful blooms, wholesome fruits and vegetables to sustain you?

Or do you see an unkempt, overgrown garden with weeds?

When you look at your life as if it was a garden, it gives you the ability to see your life from a different perspective. It reveals to you what you have sown and created. It reveals how much you have focused your time and energy on a particular area. It helps you to highlight those areas, that perhaps are beginning to allow the darkness of weeds, to hide an aspect of yourself or inhibit your ability to grow and flourish.

If within your garden you were able to see birds, wildlife, butterflies, your aura is open and you are happy to share yourself. If your garden is walled or gated, you may fear being vulnerable.

Is your garden tranquil and peaceful? Is the design of it chaotic?

What you see in your garden, is what you currently hold within yourself. Everything you can see will help you learn to understand yourself and what you are beginning to manifest.

Your garden will help you to learn to show love, forgiveness and compassion to each aspect of yourself that you have forgotten to nurture. The beauty of your garden can easily be transformed. When you find the need for inner peace, retreat to your inner garden. Spend time tending to your inner garden.

Here you will be shown what you need to uproot and discard. Here you can plant new seeds of consciousness and nurture your garden with divine energy. The garden can represent your own energy fields. Each section will help you contemplate and nurture your own soul’s growth.

If you don’t know where to start, draw a grid of 12 squares upon your garden and put into those 12 squares either spiritual qualities, or personal and professional areas you have in your life. Be sure to create a space for play and creativity. Make a space for your friends and family. Your career, Your home, your emotional needs, your physical needs, so on and so on.

Learn to bring your spiritual insights down into the physical world. Begin with ensuring each segment of your garden holds peace and balance. If it doesn’t, who or what, do you need to release in order to gain peace? You cannot plant something new, without clearing and preparing the ground.

As you venture through each segment of your inner garden, do the energies there bring you a feeling of expansion or restriction? Learn to be conscious of the energies in your own garden.

The beauty of your own garden is that, as it is a reflection of your own energies, you have all the tools you need to transform your inner garden. You can create an incredible place. Look at where you need to plant forgiveness, love, mercy, compassion, hope, faith and joy.

Plant and allow yourself to grow an abundance of colour. Create your own personal sanctuary. The more unified and energised your inner garden becomes, the greater the outer-world will begin to manifest what you are creating.

Creation is a dance, it is a weave of energies, and it is a harmonious, colourful vibration. The more you come to this place, the greater the change you can experience in your own life.

Think of yourself as the constructor of an orchestra, the way in which you use your own conscious energy will weave and create the music of your life.

Your garden is your musical masterpiece that helps your garden to grow. Never be afraid to dream and create. Providing you nurture and take care of your dreams, you will find you can achieve everything you set out to do.

Blessed be
Ascended Master Lady Nada

Top 9 Life Lessons from 100 Year Olds

This is a great article by my friend Greg Thurston
Creator of 7 Minute Mindfulness 

Watching videos of centurions, you start to see a theme: they seem content.

That might be shocking to younger people, especially anyone who fears old age. Maybe we fear missing out on opportunities in life, and worry that we’ll find ourselves too old to do things.

But we have many interviews of people 100 and older, and they love to share about their lives and offer advice to the rest of us.

Dr. Mercola (of the Mercola Video Library) interviewed three centurions for this very information, and many other people have as well.

Quite a few of us (more now than ever) have relatives or know someone who is 100 or over.

One lady I know who is 104 is full of sassy attitude and enjoys talking to people.

From this wealth of information, we can form the following ten lessons.

1. Happiness comes from what we do

At 100 years old, or older, people don’t seem to sit around and smile about the things they accumulated in life.

Rather, it’s more about their life experiences. Happy memories can go a long ways toward happiness later on!

One man over 100 years old said he did all he wanted to do. Now he wants to be helpful and keep going.

“I have so many beautiful memories,” said a woman over 100. “I got to do all the things I wanted to.”

That tells us to jump in and live life – remember that it’s about really living and making memories with people we love.

Science backs this up as well. We know people derive more happiness that is long-term from experiences such as vacations rather than from possessions.

2. Happiness comes from a positive attitude and optimism

People over 100 seem to remember life through rose tinted glasses, making it sound like an adventure even through hard times, like war.

“I’ve always been lucky,” says one centurion despite living through 2 great wars!

She also talked about how “everything makes me happy. I love talking to people… going shopping.”

Common advice from people who are doing well at 100 is to “Decide to be content.” Others say, “Don’t chase happiness. Just be satisfied.”

Deciding life is good changes our perception and makes life better, and apparently it helps you live much longer!

3. Happiness comes from living in the NOW

Age is only a number. You live for the day and keep going.

This is wisdom from someone with a very long past-but they enjoy the present.

The past is the past; we can’t change it. But we can rob ourselves of our present happiness and good emotional health by hanging onto old regrets, grudges, and pain.

You’ll gain inner peace, happiness and feel ‘uncluttered’ in your life.

4. Love and Partnership is critical for long life

Centurions often talk about their “good” marriage, all their happy memories, and all their good times together. It’s another area where they might be applying rose-tinted glasses, but it’s apparent that they got emotional support and felt like they have a life partner.

They also say that people today give up too easily these days-so there was hard work involved, but at the end of their life that part isn’t really important anymore.

“Being happily married and happy in general is the remedy for all illness.”

We don’t have studies on how marriage or long-term relationships affect life span, but you don’t have to be a scientist to take note: centurions all speak about their decades long marriage with a smile on their face.

Even people who have been widowed for a few decades say they have many, many warm memories about their married life, and that still makes them happy.

5. Eat natural, real food to feel good and live long

Many people who are 100 say they feel strong and like they’re 69 or 79. These are the people who stay active physically and mentally, and have a lot to share with other people.

Many people over 100 talk about eating fresh food that they grew themselves.

And older people will tell you over and over: eat in moderation!

6. Learn to adapt for a better and longer life

“Life goes on regardless” is a common theme. People who live well into old age understand that there is hardship in life but they know life goes on and they must too.

If you live 7, 8, 9, 10 or more decades, you’re going to see a lot of change.

People who adapt and change with the times do better. It’s part of having a positive attitude-they’re excited for new opportunities instead of fearing change.

7. Help others

Helping others is one way to build relationships and connections, and it makes you feel great.

It’s another common theme among people who live to be over 100.

Being kind and helping others gives you a sense of purpose too, and it fights depression and anxiety. Not only that, it’s a way of staying active and productive after you retire.

It’s a win-win for everyone involved, and being older and retired can mean having more time for volunteering.

8. Always learn!

Older people will advise to get a good education to help you go far in life, and science has shown that people with a Bachelor’s degree actually do live about a decade longer than people who don’t have one. (From the U.S. Centers for Disease an Control Prevention)

Older people will tell you to keep learning all through life, both in and out of school.

Be curious-it makes life more interesting and fun. And it helps you stay engaged with life and the changing technology and times. That helps you adapt too.

9. Practice Mindfulness

People over 100 tend to live in the moment as it comes, rather than worrying about plans, regrets, and getting caught up in pressure and worry.

They cherish special time with family and friends, the colors and smell of a new flower in spring, or the feel of the grass on their feet.

When life is enjoyed in the moment, it’s just better…

…And people who live in the moment more tend to live longer, happier lives!

Actively practicing mindfulness is one of the best things you can do for yourself.

When we disconnect from the mental chatter (the past, future, worry, expectations and judgements), we are able to approach life with greater perspective – we tend to see the opportunities, instead of carrying around the weight of worry and mental baggage.

There’s a wealth of research on the long term and short term health benefits of mindfulness, including boosting your immune system, Preventing cellular aging, and reducing the likelihood of age-related diseases. (UCLA)

If you’d like disconnect from the mental chatter but don’t have time for long drawn out meditation, then try 7 Minute Mindfulness.

In just 7 minutes you can release the stress that builds up, wipe away the mental chatter, and relax your mind and body… so you can enjoy a long and prosperous life!

Inner Fire – Archangel Michael

Ignatia – Algalithian Galactic Wisdom – Move the Without

Hello, it is my pleasure to assist you more in your understanding of yourselves and what is next in your own personal transformation and evolution.
So many of you are not sure what you are, what you are doing and what you will face next. It is extremely interesting how much worrying and forboding humans have. Generation after generation has trained each new soul from birth to run the programmes of worrying, fearing, doubting and untrusting. This is so far from what you were meant to experience.
It would please us greatly if you would begin to consider yourself as a body of connective light within which a multi-dimensional interface of knowledge and wisdom is held. For example, your Akashic records create a false illusion of what the Akash is. For many of you believe it is linear, a long record somewhere of everything you have ever been, done, felt or thought, through the aeons of time. In reality, your Akash is in the embodiment of the multi-universes consciousness and it is also at the same time, held within your own energy fields.
All the knowledge, the wisdom, the memories, everything is already within your own energy fields, your energy fields are the Akaash and they are a part of your soul, which can guide, inspire, motivate and demotivate you. Those moments when you have what you term a ‘Deja vue’, are when you unconsciously attune to your own Akash energy fields. This is why you can seemingly pull out of nowhere a memory of information that you didn’t know previously existed within.
Your ancestors and those ancestors before them had limited intelligence, so going back all the way through history, everything was explained and written about, with the limited intelligence capacity those ancestors had. This means that when you read old ancient texts, remember that these beings had a lower state of consciousness than you. This means that you cannot take what was written literally, instead you must read with compassion, and see how it may have been, not as it was.
Again, using what was written in the past, learn to access within your own Akash energy fields and remember those times. For rest assured, you will be able to recall either being around at that time or a similar circumstance. The original teachings of Ancient beings are not without you but within you.
It is time now to release what you know and begin again. Times are changing rapidly upon your planet. This is a powerful and beautiful opportunity to reframe, amend and begin anew. If you have been trained to think one way from birth, it is possible to retrain how you perceive information and use that information. All it needs is your willingness to start taking steps towards remaining open, nonjudgmental and focused.
To prepare yourself, begin to affirm that you can access all the knowledge within your Akash energy fields. Command your own Akash energy fields to reconnect you to the positive information that helps you to reconnect with your true soul magnetic frequencies. Do not be in a rush and expect instantaneous revelations, but instead trust within yourself that all will be revealed. During moments of tranquillity, or prior to sleep, command your Akash energy fields to open so you may retrieve information which assists you in your next stage of evolution. Command your Akash energy fields to bring you that which will motivate, inspire, elevate and expand your consciousness to a higher level.
Should you find yourself in a situation that is negative, challenging, worrisome, step back from the energy. Take a few minutes to breathe and reconnect with peace, and then ask your Akash energy fields to access the information which will help you deal with the situation.
Ask your Akash energy fields to find the information, the memories of the best way you can deal with this situation and most importantly of all, relearn to trust what comes to you. Relearn to listen to your own inner navigation system, whether you call it your inner voice, your soul, your intuitive wisdom. The key message for today is learning to listen to your inner voice, above all else. Remember you are an ancient wise multi-dimensional master.
Develop a relationship with your inner voice. Listen to what it tells you or makes you feel. If you feel a heavy feeling in the pit of your stomach, it is alerting you to being out of alignment. When this happens, spend a few moments in meditation, bringing everything into alignment. Spend a few moments grounding your energies. Drink water to cleanse and clear your energies. If necessary, wash, bathe or shower to reset your energy fields. Then, you will find things easier to deal with.
Remember, our guidance is offered for your kind consideration, in the hope that it will help you begin to remember your true essence and connect with the ancient wisdom that lies within you.
Goodbye for now

Archangel Uriel – The Inner Garden













Beloved ones; with life being so hectic, it is so very rare that you take time to enter into stillness. Many of you view making time for meditation, rumination, and even time for the self, as a hindrance.

If you continue to push on, and not take time to enter into stillness, you actually hinder your ability to process information and take action.  This in turn, creates even further frustration and stress.

If you experience frustration, or you feel there is no light at the end of the tunnel, then please see this as the universe telling you to STOP. There is a place, a beautiful tranquil place, where you can receive healing; and this beautiful place offers you the opportunity to integrate information, in a simple way, so clarity is gained. What is this place? It is your inner garden.

The outside garden in the physical world contains weeds, dead leaves; and these need to be cleared, so that a resemblance of order can be seen and appreciated. Your mind contains weeds, dead leaves; and if you don’t take time to tend your inner garden, then your ability to process information and emotions becomes very tangled and overgrown. Make a point of not over-loading your brain. Remember to continually return to tend and care for your inner garden.

There is a time for activity and a time for stillness. Activity that is prolonged creates frustration and forced energies. Stillness creates time for planning, preparation, and gives you the opportunity to create a reserve of energy for the tasks ahead.

Today, take time to prune you inner garden. Allow yourself time to release the stress and strain of human living conditions. Be it prayer, meditation or simply taking time to breathe, if you make time for you, you will be in a much better position to serve the world.



Archangel Uriel.

Ignatia – Algalithian Galactic Wisdom – Now it begins

Hello, I AM Ignatia of the Algalithians. Although you channel me as one voice, know that we are a collective consciousness and that the best frequency to commune with you is through Ignatia, who is one of our Higher Council Advisors.
We have come forward and are most excited of this opportunity to speak with you today. For aeons, we have awaited the time when humanity would be ready for the great galactic shift, which will relaunch humanity back on the path it was meant to travel upon.
For much of your planet’s evolution, there has been an impasse of energy surrounding your planet that has kept your ability to advance and evolve very much at bay. Loops of wars, disease, tragedy, famine and poverty are continuous loops that despite having amassed lots of knowledge over a period of time, very little has been done on an intellectual scale to overcome these issues humanity face.
Like a time loop, you are now conditioned to keep making the same mistakes, repeating patterns of behaviour, sticking with what you know rather than collectively combining knowledge, beliefs, opinions and ideas that work for the greater good.
So why now have we come forward, why are you able to communicate with us? The multi-universes have many entry and exit points, vibrationally they change, as they change, each entry and exit point meet up or close. It has taken some time, but finally, the vibration and frequency of Mother Earth, which is very much conditionally to the vibration and frequency of humanity, has managed to align itself with our energy portal.
(Note from Jill – I am picturing here the moving staircases in Harry Potter film the Philosopher’s Stone, at certain times the staircases thereby allowing access to other parts of Hogwarts Castle that at other times remained inaccessible)
You are right that we already know what you are thinking. Our ability is to read everything within your energy field, so it may seem strange that we answer you, as you think something, but you will get used to it. You are correct there is nothing you can hide, all is transparent, but this is not something to be feared, in fact, it should be refreshing because there is nothing to fear. For if you are afraid or unsure we will work with you to allay your concerns or help you to understand more fully.
So back to your first thought about Earth’s vibrational frequencies being in alignment with ours. Yes, we could have used our technology to visit you, or we could have telepathically communicated with you, but what we wish to bring to help humanity at this time, would not have been believed nor well received.
Our teachings in many ways will be very radically different to all you have learnt before. Our way of being will rattle the very strong fears of those who use power to control others and things. Our way disempowers those who would desire have things purely for themselves.
Our way creates peace, harmony, equality and balance. There is still individuality, but with that individuality, there is an essence of honouring others, so we are not clones of one another, nor are we robotic. We have free will, but we use that free will to support not suppress life.
Can our teachings and technology help you? We know they can. The question is, is humanity ready for the great galactic shift, which is to come? Will humanity now embrace what we have to offer them? We think the time to sow new seeds of opportunity is now.
One of the ways in which we can help you is to show you how you can use your current level of technology to assist you in healing without the need for infusing chemicals and poisons into the body.
Already, many starseed ancient masters have and are entering planet Earth to assist in the rebirthing of humanity. In the time to come, there will be those who are unable to embrace the new way of being, sadly not all can be saved in the way we would like them to be saved. When we talk of saving, we describe this in human terms, for in your eyes, this would mean avoiding the physical transformation you term as death.
Over the coming months and years, we will assist those of you who are ready to embark on a new way of living and being. Our guidance and suggestions are offered with love and hope for humanity. We will bring teachings about how to use your energy bodies correctly. How you can use your energy bodies to heal yourself. We can offer you insight into God, the nature of being spiritual, insight in time, space, illusion, reality and most importantly how to focus your energies to heal physical impediments that are currently seen as incurable.
We understand your desire to download and take as much information as you can, but like creating the perfect presentation, everything must be done in stages if it is to be understood, embraced and absorbed.
We have forged our way through many similar issues humanity has and is dealing with. We have assisted other starseed races in similar quests. Our desire is to build and create a greater galactic family for the future, just as you hop in your vehicles to visit your relations, it is hoped that in the not too distant future, visiting your galactic family will be just as easy.
You will get to know more about us soon but for now, we hope you will allow us to show you how to begin using just more than 10-15% of your brain and your energy fields for greater personal transformation. At this time, personal transformation is key, for once you see the benefits of what we offer you, the more you will embrace some of our more radical knowledge which challenges some of your current scientific and spiritual beliefs.
For now, here is something to consider, ponder and try to find the answer to, when you have a thought, where does that thought come from? It may be processed within the cerebrum, but where does it originate from? How does thought affect your perception of everything within and without you?
It has been my honour to communicate with you.

Hirohito – What Are You Thinking? The Japanese way to happiness…

Whether you are spiritual are not, please be open to reading the following, there may be a reason why you found this particular page.
Whilst visiting Japan for my Metatronic Spiritual School Tour, on my day off from teaching my students and meeting with clients for private sessions. I had decided to spend the morning at a little cafe tucked away from the noise and bustle of Tokyo. Down a small alleyway, was this lovely little Japanese cafe with an English theme. It had just a couple of tables and chairs and beautiful flowers in a vase. It was though it had magically appeared just for me. I sat down and ordered a coffee and something to eat.
I was enjoying the tranquillity when I felt the presence of spirit with me. I said hello and invited them to make themselves known. What follows is a discourse with a Japanese male who said his name was Hirohito. When I asked who he was and what he did, he said his physical role was not important. What he did in his last incarnation was not important, what was important is that he was simply known as divine energy, for in truth he said, that is what everything is.
He wished to share some of his knowledge with me to help me and asked me if I would like his assistance. At the time of ordering my coffee, I was wondering why life had so many ups and downs, so many disparities. My thoughts had drawn Hirohito to me. I invited Hirohito to share with me everything that he wanted to. I asked him if it was possible to write down his comments, so that I could share them with others to which he agreed. Here is what he had to say: –
“In Japan the most important aspect in life is respect.
Respect for all things, from a flea to a tall building, everything is representation of divine energy.
Having respect for your self and others is number one priority. How is your brain? What energy permeates those magnetic cells? If you think radiant thoughts you experience a radiant day. If you think sad negative thoughts, you experience a sad day. When you think radiant thoughts your energy fields are open to receiving divine energy, when you are sad, your cells are closed to receiving divine energy.

Your brain radiates highly charged magneto energy and the energies of a human brain reciprocate with the energies around it. Both feed each other. When your life is stagnant, you must first consider where in brain, your stagnant energy lies.
Let me give example. You look at a person you love but look at their faults, not their qualities. This interrupts flow of energy between you. Therefore, communication energy between you is not even, in harmony. This creates disharmony in your relationship with this person.
Now apply this to your business. If your workspace is filled with books, files, papers strewn everywhere, this shows disrespect to these things and it interrupts flow of energy and makes good work and financial flow difficult. For example, are you showing respect to the items on your desk? Respect must be shown even to a piece of paper.
Think of how Mother Earth has given of her energy to feed tree, think of energy given from tree to create said paper.
Place items neatly, give papers, books, pens, space to breathe. Open window to allow oxygen to purify and clear stagnant energy. If you have to move something in order to do something else, this is not good energy.
The more harmonious you are, the cleaner, purer your space, the quicker the flow of good fortune and luck will find you.
When a baby is born it is surrounded by a large aura infused with divine love. The first thing baby requires is food, warmth and shelter. When baby first takes its nourishment of mothers milk, it is a great example of human core nature. For it is not taking but sharing.
The baby helps physical release, sometimes eases pain in breast of mother. Mother gives her nourishment, warmth and love.
At the core of humanity is the desire to share love and support one another. There is mutual respect. If humanity can remember that only greatness can be achieved through respect and sharing, then much of humanities issues would be healed and happiness would be the energy upon Earth.
When you arise what are you thinking? You must be aware of how strong mind is and you must determine whether mind controls your experiences, or whether heart controls mind, which then determines experiences.
Prayer, meditation enables day to begin in love, gratitude and happiness. When someone is angry, they are expressing pain. When someone is cruel or nasty, they are expressing pain. Rather than reciprocate to another with same energy, thereby fuelling said energy, feel their pain. Acknowledge their dis-ease.
Ask how you may help to ease their suffering. This accomplishes two very important things. First, it makes person acknowledge their pain, their suffering and once they become aware of this, they unconsciously take the responsibility for their issues. Secondly, it opens communication which releases pain and suffering. It leads to greater debate and understanding.
Always come from a place of serenity. Sometimes one may have to show extreme patience, extreme tolerance, but in doing so, you help your inner energy stay at optimum level, so well-being and balance are maintained. You also ensure you continue to draw to you good energy. If you get angry, shout, you force energy out of your inner core like an explosion and this places great stress on the physical cells. It puts the immunity of the body under extreme duress and it shocks the physical cells.
Remembering your true core soul energy of giving and receiving, in gentle manner will help you to live long and prosper. To avoid confrontation, always listen and focus on understanding and learning. There is no need for comment unless you are asked for your thoughts on said topic of conversation.
Mankind is too quick to open mouth before engaging heart and mind. This is cause of much suffering. Great thought must be given to reply. You do not have to answer immediately. Consider is reply from heart or mind? Is it different in heart to what scientific, logical mind thinks? Can a balance between both heart and mind be found? Does answer help, or hinder conversation? For it is very important, energy response is with respect and love.
Does this mean you deny your integrity? No. Honesty is essential, one must never deny or jeopardise its integrity, but honesty that demonstrates respect, understanding and desire to find amicable solution is best. For example, husband says to wife “I am unhappy you have no time for me now we have children.”
If wife responds instantly, it is human nature to defend. Logical scientific mind will justify with reasons causing more pain and suffering for both husband and wife. But, if wife listens, breathes, contemplates, searches her heart and mind, she may feel husbands pain, even her own pain perhaps and acknowledge the pain.
Perhaps she may say… “I am sorry you feel I do not have time for you. I am sad also that we do not spend as much time together. How do you propose together we can make this better between us, what would you like me to do to help us rectify this situation?”
So you see this response make husband feel understood, it eases his pain and this fosters further dialogue and helps promote love energy between both husband and wife.
The human brain is always thinking. In Ancient Days it was possible to experience great peace by not thinking. The art of Nothingness, where nothing is present, nothing is important, learning to blank the mind was a talent many spiritual masters practised.
Learn to spend time doing nothing except breathing. Try to practise not thinking. Sit and every time you have a thought say “Blank”, then go back to nothingness, it will bring you great inner peace and harmony. To help you, you could focus on an object like flower, or sit and observe a scene without thinking. Learn to just observe without thought. Try to do this for one minute, then build until you can attain one hour. This enables your energies to heal mind, body and spirit quickly. It is way to allow body to use energies for healing time.
The way to enlightenment is through happiness and happiness is found in respecting Divine Energy. I will leave you to enjoy your refreshment and practice art of blanking the mind. Namaste.

ASCENDED MASTER MARY MAGDALENE – Controlling Energy Displacement

Dear ones, please take a moment to stop and breathe. Sometimes it is very easy to get caught up in the drama of life as soon as you open your eyes but when this happens your energies are displaced, which in turn, displaces your focus, your emotions and your actions.

Guided meditation, Meditation or prayer, even if it is just two minutes really helps you to stop the displacement of your energy fields. Try to think of your four energy bodies like water. When you wake up and jump into action, this means that the waves on the surface of your energy fields are creating turbulence in the deepest waters of your soul.

By breathing, and focusing on where your energies are, consciously grounding your energies, you instead smooth the turbulent waves above you, or at least you prevent them from destabilising you.

Learning to shield yourself from negativity is an art form. It is necessary to always be aware of how your core energy is behaving, it is being controlled by external factors? Or, are you able to ensure you can calmly and peacefully stay centred?

Learning to stay centred ensures you can remain open to what is unfolding, compassionate, understanding and detached. You may believe being detached means you do not care, but this is not true. Being detached means you are not swayed by human emotion or logic, instead, it gives you the ability to choose how to view and act for the greater good of all whilst maintaining balance. It is seeing and hearing from a spiritual perspective.

You may like to, if your day has begun in a whirl of frenetic energy, take a moment to just breathe, focus on your solar plexus, feel where within you there is any misalignment, anxiety, frustration or irritation. Imagine that energy like the waves of the ocean and breathe gently to calm down those waves. When you do this, the deepest waters of your soul will ensure your outer energy fields are a lake of calm, peace and serenity. I bid you a day of peace, love and joy.

Mary Magdalene.
