Rebooting My Book Project

Rebooting My Book Project

Making My Story A Reality

After a day of feeling a degree of overwhelm, I realised I need to do some fresh prioritising or this book would never be finished

In stepped my beach coach, Des. We were walking on the beach and I was sharing my current lack of progress. Des came up with the plan for me to be accountable on a weekly basis.

There is part of me that doubts  the value of my journey for others. Des reminded me:

You overcame this, if you hadn’t had that positive attitude and total belief that you were going to be healed, it might have overcome you. I said I might still be on dialysis. Des said I might not be here 🙂

That was my wake up moment. I so often forget the seriousness of the kidney failure I had. It takes Des and my freinds to remind me. I often think that what I did was no big thing!

It was very quickly clear to me that completing and publishing my book, Lucky to Be Alive: How I used the Power of Self Love to Safe my Life, had to be high on my list of priorities.

Maybe even the top priority.

I realise that regular readers of this blog might think, “Haven’t we read this before?”, and while I can’t think of a specific blog post to that effect, the reaction would be understandable.

But now I’m putting it out there that this time my commitment is quite serious.

I’m reviewing my plan for completing the writing and scheduling the editing, publication, and marketing elements of the plan.

Being accountable

I’m taking some steps to hold myself accountable to get this done.

One of those steps is to post a weekly update on progress with the book, and I’ll do that even if in my own mind, or in fact, I haven’t made great progress in a specific week.



One idea I am playing with is that in those weekly posts I want to include some excerpts from the book as I’m writing. I’m not sure if that will work, but I want to try it.

Being supported

 

So many people have asked me when the book will be available and some of my friends have urged me to just get on with it! I’m very clear that I will soon be able to share with them and the world a realistic timeframe for that.

What would help would be for you, dear reader, and other readers of this blog, to share your comments and any questions or ideas, as I post my weekly updates.

If you want to be part of the journey and get the weekly updates Plus opportunity to get a review copy join in here: ( you will only get updates  from me about the book, unless you are on my Heart Whisper Ezine list.)

Give Me Advance Notice for Lucky to be Alive + Opportunity for a review copy

What’s the burning question you have for me? 

I look forward to reading your comments .

All my love

 Live with love, smile often and be forever grateful

How to Meditate and Listen To Your Heart Whisper

How to Meditate and Listen To Your Heart Whisper

how-to-meditate-hw

A Simple Way To Start Meditating

Today’s post has come in response to a request from Heart Whisperer Kim Stanley Lawyer when I posted the Heart Whisper Daily guidance card  Your Heart Knows yesterday in the Heart Whisper Circle.

So today when I drew the Listen Card  I knew it was time to create a simple meditation  for you and all the Heart Whisperers. Those of you who want to find a simple way to meditate each day that as Kim said:

I think you might want to have a short session about meditation. Show people that this is not an exact science and we all have our own ways to listen to our hearts. No meditation clothing required. The lotus position is not necessary. No guru, no magic, no prizes. I think a great number of people would benefit from an unveiling of how to go to the quiet place in your mind.

Then my Heart Whisper card drawing today confirmed this

listen

In this post we are going to discover a simple way to start and maybe you fell off your meditation practise and are ready to begin again.

Meditation Should Be (according to Suzie 🙂 )

  • fun
  • simple
  • make you feel good
  • something you look forward to
  • uplifting
  • even a problem solver

Now Let’s Get Started

Today I have recorded a short meditation for you that I am calling : Allowing Your Heart To Be Calm Your Mind.

This is just one way to meditate. Over the next few weeks I will be sharing a variety of ways we can quiet the mind and tap into our hearts.  Make sure you are a member of The Heart Whisper Circle where I do live Heart Whisper Meditations and free Card Readings.

What To Do

RELAX 🙂 Get comfy – this can be sitting in a chair, lying in bed (I often meditate before I get out of bed), lying or sitting on the floor, out in nature ( I love to meditate at the beach).

Now click the start button and listen to my voice guide you. This is a 4 minute meditation to calm your mind and allow you to have a way to simply do a short meditation , especially good when you are getting into overwhelm.

Heart Whisper Meditation To Calm Your Mind

I would love to hear from you in the comments on whether you found that helped you either start to calm your monkey mind.

Don’t forget to join the Heart Whisper Circle

21 Healthy Reasons To Eat Chia Seeds Daily

21 Healthy Reasons To Eat Chia Seeds Daily

chia heart

 “Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you who you are.” -Brillat-Savarin

 Chia seeds are a wonderful gift from nature.

I drink a glass of water each morning that has a tablespoon of chia seeds in it that have been soaked over night. I have been doing this for maybe 4 or 5 years. I first came across chia seeds at a Health show and the man selling Australian grown chia seeds told me,  since taking a tablespoon a day he had stopped taking all other supplements as chia is full of so many nutrients. My ears sparked up. Des and I were taking a Glucosamine with Condroitin supplement for our joints.  I bought a large bag of the seeds and started the morning ritual that has continued since.. I went off the supplement straight away and Des about 3 months later. Since then Des has had no knee pain.

 Chia comes from the plant Salvia Hispanica

Chia was first used by the Aztecs as early as 3500 B.C. and was a cash crop in the centre of Mexico between 1500 and 900 B.C.  Chia was harvested in the Valley of Mexico between 2600 and 2000 B.C. by the Teotihuacan and Toltec civilizations and was one of the main components of the Aztec diet.

Pre-Columbian civilizations used chia as a raw material for medicines, nutritional compounds.  Chia was used by the Aztecs as food, mixed with other foods, mixed in water and drunk as a beverage, ground into flour, included in medicines, and pressed for oil.  Chia flour could be stored for many years and could be easily carried on long trips, serving as a high-energy food.  The aztecs also offered chia to the gods during religious ceremonies.

 

21 Healthy Reasons to Add Chia to Your Daily Menu:

  1. Chia contains 20% Omega 3 ALA, making it a super food for the brain and heart. Chia has eight times more Omega 3 than salmon!
  2. Great source of fiber, with 20 grams per 1/4 cup serving.  Good news for your digestive tract!
  3. Chia is Gluten Free
  4. Chia boasts 20% protein and is a  complete protein with all 8 essential amino acids
  5. It is high in antioxidants (It has a four times higher ORAC value than blueberries)
  6. Chia seeds are known to stabilize blood sugar levels
  7. Chia contains seven times more vitamin C than oranges
  8. Chia contains three times more iron than spinach
  9. Chia contains twice the potassium content of banana
  10. Chia is food for healthy skin.
  11. Chia gives glossy hair and stronger nails
  12. Chia is rich in minerals like Calcium, Manganese, and Phosphorus
  13. It has a positive impact balancing blood glucose levels (making it awesome for diabetics)
  14. Chia makes a great egg replacement. Just combine with water to form a gel, and add it to recipes that call for egg. Great alternative for vegans or people sensitive to eggs.
  15. Chia also contain a decent amount of Zinc, Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Potassium, Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) and Vitamin B2.
  16. Chia seeds contain high levels of calcium, together with boron, which is of great benefit to bone health.
  17. Chia seeds help with constipation
  18. Chia seeds can give you more energy
  19. Chia seeds are low in calories
  20. Chia seeds are filling so can be good for weight loss
  21. Chia gel provides hydration and  help retain electrolytes – great for athletes as an energy drink.

How Much Chia each Day.

I have 1 tablespoon most days just in water, I have read where 2 tablespoons are recommended. With chia you must remember to drink lots of water as they bulk up. You can read about side effects here

chia drink

 How To Use Chia

Chia is tasteless, comes in either black or white seeds, so lends itself to a multitude of recipes. Today I have made  a chia fruit pudding, so easy .

CHIA Pudding Recipe: Serves 4

4 tablespoons of chia seeds

400 mls  (13.5 oz)of Almond Milk. You can substitute this with coconut water or milk or your favourite milk.

1/2 teaspoon of organic vanilla essence, vanilla bean would be better, but I didn’t have any.

1 cup of berries ( I used frozen raspberries and  fresh strawberries)

1/2 a cup of organic shredded coconut

Cinnamon

 

Add the chia seeds, the milk, the fruit, the vanilla into into a bowl and mix. Then add in the shredded coconut and stir, sprinkle with cinnamon.

Place a piece of cling wrap over the bowl and allow it to set in the fridge for 3 hours or more.

mixing1a

When it is ready take out of the bowl and spoon onto serving bowls. You can top with coconut yoghurt, nuts, key you imagination run wild.  I was thinking a raspberry coulis would be yummy.

chia-pudding

After researching chia seeds I now have many new ways to use them that I  will share in another article.

After many people asking my about my alkaline eating regime and when was the recipe book coming I have decided to add in a Heal Your Body or Healthy Life category, with more recipes.

The Healing Power of Gratitude

The Healing Power of Gratitude

Yes Gratitude Does Heal

Putting the words and thoughts into action

After what has been a very success Heart Whisper Gratitude Challenge  I had great plans to look start a new Heart Weekly Whisper Wednesday video series. This would be part of Suzie Tv and I will share my Heart Whisper stories and answer any questions you may have. I did rest and relax last weekend as I had forgotten the demands that 31 days of blogging takes.

Then comes Monday and as the saying goes “The best laid plans of mice and men often go astray – Robert Burns  Yes my plans went totally astray. If you receive my Weekly Heart Whisper you will have read the story:  I went to post a parcel and go to Magic Monday ( Our health food store has an awesome 20% discount on the first Monday of the month). As I was walking back to finish some shopping I found myself falling and the next thing I knew I was flat on the hard tiles floor shopping bags neatly landing. (Amazing I had a large jar of Organic Coconut Oil and it did not smash!)c I was in shock and a quick check at my local doctor showed no broken bones, that was great news. The last time I had a fall I had a fractured humorous! 

I felt okay and continued shopping before returning home to put ice on the damaged knee. I chatted to a friend on skype and thought I would be okay. Not so, by mid afternoon I couldn’t walk. More ice, REST, lots of love and gratitude and bed for the next day or so.  It is now healing and I can only feel a little twinge. I am walking again and I am so full of gratitude and love.
heart-whisper-II-#38
Following on from the Gratitude Challenge I have continued to do my daily gratitude, my card reading and next week I will be sharing them daily on my Facebook Page .
Part of the inspiration for today’s post came from reading a story  by Emmett E Miller MD, Gratitude: A Healing Attitude in  Louise Hay and Friends, GRATITUDE A Way of Life.  Emmett shared his experiences with patients. Over 20 years of medical practice he says grateful people heal faster and are happier.  He says:
A sense of gratitude empowers us to choose wisely….how we feel, what we say, what we believe and what we do. Gratitude leads us to see what is available, what we can develop. After all, there is nothing to work with in the empty part of the glass. Without the attitude of gratitude, there results a feeling of deprivation.
The state of mind  that we call gratitude is not inborn in my opinion, but something we learn. gratitude as to do with feeling full, complete, adequate – we have everything we need and deserve; we approach the world with a sense of value. it is the experience of the range of fulfilment that is possible that leads to a capacity for gratitude. Without gratitude, the tendency is to feel incomplete, cheated, deficient – in a word helpless.
There are many other powerful stories in the book. they inspired me to focus on being grateful to speed up my healing process.
I am  Grateful for…………
  • I am grateful that I have no broken bones, this means my heal my bones regime is working as I was told 2 years ago that I had osteoporosis, caused by predisolone. I have been on a a bone healing and regrowing journey for the past 2 years. I was told that it took two years to regrow bones
  • I am grateful for shopping centre management and the care they took and to the two women who stayed with me
  • I am grateful for our health system and the miracle that I only had to wait 30 minutes to see my own doctor
  • I am grateful to me for letting go and having the sense and patience to rest and heal. I have lots of practice, seems not quite enough
  • I am grateful for all the love, prayers and healing that was sent from all my online friends- you are awesome
  • I am grateful to family who called to see how I was going and offer advice.
  • I am grateful to Des for his continued love and care for me and the yummy meals he cooked and for taking me with chair to Rainbow Bay beach to be in the sun.

  • I am grateful for the healing power of ice
  • I am grateful that my knee did not bruise, I think the bones might be 🙂
  • I am grateful that I have been kind to me and released any anxiety about what did not get done
  • I am grateful for my alkaline lifestyle and all the wonderful fresh food i eat each day, it heals

Heart Whisper Gratitude Challenge Day 28: Reiki As A Gratitude Practice.

Heart Whisper Gratitude Challenge Day 28: Reiki As A Gratitude Practice.

Welcome to Day 28 of The Heart Whisper Gratitude Challenge: Reiki as a gratitude practice.

(If you’re only just catching up with us today go here first to find out what you need to do to get ready or just start at the day you have arrived at. The previous days are listed at the bottom of each post in PINK)

Heart Whisper Gratitude Challenge Day28Just for today, do not be angry. Do not worry and be filled with gratitude. Devote yourself to your work and be kind to others. ~Usui Mika

 

Today’s Card:  I was guided to change decks today to The Archangel Oracle cards and when I drew  Gifts From God I thought what a wonderful follow on from yesterday. Maybe we still have some work to do on receiving and asking for help. 🙂  I know do.

Gifts from God“Archangel Sandaphon: We angels bring you gifts from your Creator. Open your arms to receive.”

 Today’s Message

“Heaven is expansive and ever increasing. One of the ways in which Heaven increases is through the giving and sending of love continuously. This love is sent your way in many forms, and your only task it to be willing to receive. Right now the answers to your prayers await your willing receptivity. Open your arms to these gifts! Your Creator wills that you be happy, healthy, secure and that all your needs are provided. Release any fears of receiving to me.”

Working with Archangel Sandalphon

One of Archangel Sandalphon’s roles is to deliver and answer our prayers and he assures us that every prayer is heard and answered. Call on him when you need help in allowing yourself to receive. Part of the responsibility of claiming your gifts is knowing that there is no scarcity, and the more you share your gifts, the more gifts there will be for you.

Today we are going to give ourselves the gift of reiki.

“We all have the ability to heal ourselves; I know, I have done so…
In the morning, know that you are Loved, You Are Love and You Love” ― Lisa Bellini

Today’s Activity: Using Reiki

Today’s post  was inspired by my friend Heather’s facebook post, in that  I was reminded of the Reiki prayer. It reminded me that I had not been using my reiki channeling for many, many months. This is the third sign I have received in the past 3 weeks. I originally learned Reiki I and II I believe to help heal Des from a skin challenge he had back in 2005. I also used it for my own healing journey

Reiki.org defines reiki as: “A Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It’s administered by laying on hands and can be easily learned by anyone.”

This video Learn Reiki in Ten Minutes explains very simply what reiki is and gives a great introduction, plus teaches you simply how you can bring reiki energy into your life today. I like how Randolph Shipon says the feeling of gratitude to be the foundation of reiki.

“If I want to share Reiki (spiritual energy) with someone, then I would have to first re-discover spiritual energy within myself”-Frans Stiene

Reiki Resources:

  1. If you have studied Reiki and let your practice slip, check out this post  I found on 10 ways to use reiki everyday. I am going to use it to reignite my reiki healing
  2. Hand Positions on my Healing Vision Board
  3. Reiki Hand Positions for self treatment video
  4. Reiki Quotes

The prayer in today’s heart comes from the Ideals of Reiki

Reiki Ideals

 You might like to add this prayer to your daily meditaion practice if it is a fit for you

Daily Activities: Choose what feels good for you

  • Write down five things you are grateful for today- maybe focus on being grateful for times in your life that have had you walking a different path
    Count your blessings one by one as you started to on Day 6. 
  • Use Hoʻoponopono if you need to relax, center yourself  or to be forgiving of you.
  • Breathe in Love Breathe out gratitude from Day 16
  • Still using your gratitude rock?  I was reading today the Lee Bower  suggest you use your gratitude rock daily: Say  the phrase: Everyday I choose to be in an attitude of gratitude. I get to chose how each day begins and receive the positive energy that accompanies my awesomeness of and gratitude for  all of the many blessings in my life
  • Make an affirmation card that sits on your desk, computer or use an app on your phone . I have used heart shaped post-its and this sits on my computer. I often use words  from Louise Hay’s  Your Can Heal Your life Affirmation kit.
  • Record the abundance you notice each day in your journal
  • Now celebrate when you notice abundance, celebrate the evidence of it in you life. Do a happy dance, say: Look what I attracted to me! Do this every day for the next 7 days and share any ahas in the comments

Until tomorrow keep touching your gratitude rock and counting your blessings and seeing the abundance  that you already have.

I love hearing from you in the comments  and please share if you are inspired 🙂

thank you
