Does Your Heart Need Healing

 

Over the last year I have struggled with some unresolved pain...

I do things for myself, gratitude, exercise, journalling, 

All the things I KNOW I need to do but sometimes that is just not enough...

My fur baby (aka beloved dog) passed away late last year,

I knew the time was coming, but she had got me through Soo much

divorce, health issues, bereavement, heart break,

Everything and Everything...

- she had been my constant companion for 14 years, so losing her really hit me hard...

I have bounced back over the last 8 months and then something comes along and Wham, Im back down again....sound familiar?

So I decided to consult a Homeopath a few months ago for the first time...

I found my first visit quite incredible.....

I spent the first visit, pouring my heart out, things I have been through over the years....  

Honestly I got more from that visit than I have almost a lifetime of visiting doctors....

Does Your Heart Need Healing

You don't realise how much you have been through until you recount it to other people and they say 'Omg you've been through so much'

I sometimes don't know how I got through it - I just know that my Personal Growth and

Being Open to Everything and Closed to Nothing

(a quote from the wonderful Wayne Dyer)..

I have managed to work through it all - or so I thought :)

I also have had my first ever Reiki session, from a distance. 

That also was quite amazing. I had told my friend Nicky, what I was feeling. She lives in France, we spoke via skype before hand and she told me at 8pm, my time she would do some Reiki on me.  

The experience, was amazing...I can only recommend you contact Nicki here and have her do some Reiki on you - just incredible...

It's only been on visiting the homeopath, that I have had some AHA moments regards my pain.  

Losing my fur baby (aka my beloved Zoe)  was that ONE thing that has opened the flood gates to Everything I've been through previously.....

I lost one of my sisters, 7 years ago this weekend, there is a lot more to that story too, which I will share in another blog post...

Anyway - over the last week or so, my heart has begun to hurt again....

The universe has been working to help me and never more so than this morning.

 I saw this post on Facebook..which was Just what I needed....

If you have any pain - or even if you don't realise you do...

Try this - I could not believe as I followed the instructions - the pain that was there...

I followed the instructions,

cried my eyes out, and felt the pain ease...

I cannot tell you how amazing I found this....

I don't want to give it away, so go and do the exercise...Now !

Whether someone has hurt you

Unresolved conflict

Whatever you have in your heart 

I Strongly encourage you to do this exercise, its just Amazing, 

I don't agree with everything he said,

Due to my personal growth, I no longer blame anyone else for my pain

I don't consider myself a victim either, in fact when people comment on how much I've been through, I just feel 'others have been through so much worse'

However I did follow his instructions and found it quite incredible...

I would love to hear your comments once you've done the exercise...

This is my friend Melanie's blog where I found this..

What Are you Telling Yourself

What Are you Telling Yourself

 

I watched a video the other day, which was powerful...

it was About Self Talk and How 

We Must Absolutely Not - Say to anyone or ourselves

"I can't do this' or 'This isn't working'.....

We have to be Telling Ourselves "I can Do this' 

I can Do Anything...

My good friend and amazing colleague Shuan Trewern posted this today

Just take a look at this video and You Can't Fail to be Inspired...

Its All In Their Head

Helen

Don't EVER Say You Can't Do Something

The Power Of The Human Spirit

Don't EVER Say You Can't Do Something

 

Sometimes it's easier to say that life has somehow let us down.  

It's the simple way to let ourselves off the hook for not doing more with our lives, to simply blame the circumstances that we find ourselves in...  right?

Well......  NO MORE!

You either Do.... or you Don't.

If there is something you want to do, you just have to do it!

Don't You EVER Say You Can't Do Something with your life.....  and after watching this quick video, I'm sure you never will!

 

The Power Of The Human Spirit to succeed is just amazing!  These men have every reason to sit down and say it's all too hard....  but they refuse to have their life's circumstances dictate to them what is possible!

So the next time you think you are having a bad day.....  

The next time some completely minor thing is inconvenient for you....

The next time..........   

No!  Not JUST the next time....  For the rest of your life...  think of the sacrifice these amazing men have made.  

Draw inspiration from their determination.  

Realize that every time you make a decision to make an excuse for your own inaction, you could have just as easily made a decision to do something awesome!

If you don't have a purpose for your life yet, go find it!!

Decide every day that you will not be beaten by a negative thought or a negative circumstance.  You are responsible for your life!!

Make it Amazing!

So You've Been Rejected....

It hurts doesn't it...

I was prompted to do this post whilst looking up 'old friends' ....

Mmm 'old friends' being the operative word.....

They were actually people I didn't think were 'old friends' 

I thought they were 'current friends'....

However, on looking them up on Facebook - I found they had 'defriended me'

Oh the Betrayal - How Could They??? (wink)..

This is is how I felt when I first started to notice people have 'defriended me'

then I started to realise that 'actually, what did I have in common with that person anyway?'

Many years ago I used to take these things personally....then I read Lisa Nichols book "No Matter What' and she inspired me...

She shares this;

Relationships are like seasons, some last a few weeks, some last a few months, some last years and some do last a life time....
However when you look back on those relationships that have not lasted, you realise that those people came into your life for a reason...when you can accept this and just 'let them go' its far more empowering than that feeling of rejection.

I have often found this when someone has moved away or even completed left the friendship - when I have thought about it - I have realised they were there when I needed them most...

It even happened to me a few years ago...

I spoke up when others wouldn't and there was a huge fall out - I lost several friends, one of them a very close friend..but on reflection and another really good friend pointed out 'you were never like them anyway' and I wasn't.. I had just been 'trying to fit in'.

So back to Facebook and losing friends...yes it hurts at first but then when you realise how many friends you have gained...you WILL lose some people, you can't please everyone and you will die trying...

I've also read Wayne Dyer's book The Power of Intention - which is just a fantastic book.

One thing is just briliant that he shares, we spend so much time

'looking for ways to be offended'

ie 'Why have they defriended me??'

'what are they not speaking to me?'.  

Just continue being the wonderful person that you are....

You are Never Going to Please everyone and you will die Trying

And if by any chance you are losing more friends than you have - then perhaps you need to look at your behaviour?

are you treating people as you would like to be treated?

Are you valueing your friendships?

ie are you telling people how much you value them?

Its also worth remembering some famous rejections....see below....

Be Yourself, even if thats 'wierd' or different (words I've been called many times)

No not everyone will like you but As long as You Love you, and as I said above, you are being kind to other people, you are living a life that is congruent with what you believe... then thats what is important....

Don't Copy anyone else  (I did ALOT of this when I was younger!!)

Never try to follow anyone else, JUST to be liked...

Learn to Love your own company....

So if you've found some people have rejected you - Ok 

Move on - find more people who Get You and Further More Love You....

He Made Us Laugh But  Neglected Himself? - Robin Williams

I have always thought or maybe even known that people who are constantly laughing and making jokes, are secretly very unhappy themselves...

We Never Know Whats Going On in Someone's Life..RIP Robin Williams..You will be Missed So much More than You know...

We Lost such a Gorgeous man today....I see so many hearts breaking all over the world today/tonight 

Robin Williams was a genius..I would laugh 'til I cried watching him... 

Some of my favourites are Good Morning Vietnam, or even Mrs Doubtfire...there were soo many.



You will often find that people who are soo funny and Always making people laugh are actually the least happy inside....

Reading the various tweets from stars that worked with him - one thing is clear..he had so much compassion for people...

He Made Us Laugh But  Neglected Himself? - Robin Williams

I feel for his family, I can only imagine how they are feeling. 

I don't have any experience with suicide, but I know friends who have lost loved ones.  You can only imagine the thoughts that go through the families head...'if only I had known how bad they were feeling'

In reality - they must hide it so well and if someone is so determined to end their life, we cannot stop them.

There are some schools of thoughts, that we ALL chose when we die...but suicide just stands out as so shocking..some religions even call it a sin - I personally have 0 time for that.

I just feel compassion....

You never know whats going on in someone's life...

So Don't Judge People

Give them Love

Talk To People

Hug People 


Tell People how much you care about them....

I feel that Robin Williams gave the World such joy but for whatever reason he didn't give himself that Joy....

We Have To Start With Ourselves....

Learn to Love yourself and Then Love Others...

What A Legacy you Left Robin....

I leave you with one of my favourites video's of Robin with another of my favourites...Graham Norton....

Rest in Peace Easy Robin - you have left such an Amazing Legacy, we will miss you far more than you thought we would...

Why You Have To See Cliff Curtis in the Dark Horse

The real Genesis Potini

I had seen this film advertised so I decided to take myself along to see it.

I have to admit i have a terrible habit of dragging friends along to see films that quite frankly turn out to have horrendous endings....not that they are not good films, but they end in a dreadful way....

Whilst at times as I sat watching this film I did think 'what have I bought myself to' by half way through, I was very glad I had.....inspiring film doesn't even come close...Brilliant...

Why You Have To See Cliff Curtis in the Dark Horse

One such film with a terrible ending

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas....OMG... great film but not sure why they ever allowed it to have that ending....

So there I was going to see The Dark Horse...

A New Zealand Film.  Whilst New Zealand is a small (but beautiful country)- the films we make here are just Amazing..I have yet to see a bad New Zealand made film (including Peter Jackson films)

The Dark Horse,  had our very own Cliff Curtis who has left, New Zealand shores and Really hit the big screen now...

I had seen a clip of The Dark Horse about Cliff Curtis's character being inspiring so I was keen to see it as that is my passion, inspiring people....and seeing people rise from challenges....

Why You Have To See Cliff Curtis in the Dark Horse

New Zealand has a gang culture here...and this was a big part of the story...as was the under underprivileged kids and drugs.....

Its also about Mental Illness which in fairness New Zealand do promote understanding with such adverts as 'Like Minds, Like Mine'.....about treating people with mental illness the same regardless of their condition... 

Cliff Curtis's character has Bipolar and we see him struggle with this throughout the film,which is both heart breaking and inspirational....

Your heart goes out to him as hes SUCH a good guy, trying to help the younger generation, whilst struggling with his own health and his less than supportive family...  what I found so poignant, after I saw the film and was researching for this was when you read about Cliff Curtis's own story here...

When you read bits of Curtis's story, you realise how much more powerful this story was for him

Born in Rotorua, he lost his mum when he was 3. His late father, George, was an alcoholic and young Cliff ended up as a ward of the state when he was 12. leaving school at 14 to become, in no particular order, a labourer, glazier, cleaner, builder.

Dark horse, is based on a true story of Genesis Potini, which frustratingly enough, there is very little to find about him, other than what is shown in the films credits...(see bottom of blog post)

What I did catch in the films credits, just like the film, he took under priviledged kids and chanelled their focus, instead of into drugs and gangs (where a lot of their parents had headed) into Chess...He died a few years ago, from a relatively young age and someone else has taken up the reins and still taking the young under privledged kids to play Chess.

Whilst the violence in this film is not bad; (nothing like some films I've seen and wish I hadn't) its more than I wanted to see - but I simply closed my eyes when it  came on....   its reality for a lot of homes in New Zealand...

more from Curtis

"Sometime in my early-to-mid-20s I thought 'how did this happen? Why am I even here?'," he says about his first flush of success. "And it was something about love and it was something about wanting to make my world right because a lot of things in my childhood were not right. So there was a lot of momentum propelling me away from that.

There is one scene in this film, where Genesis (Cliff Curtis) goes back to get his nephew and puts up with some incredible 'stuff'  (I won't reveal as it will spoil it) but still walks out with his nephew....inspiring...

Go see this film, you will laugh out loud, I did, you will cry - I had my tissues out and I heard and saw a 'few' people blowing their noses and you will be saying 'Go on!, you can do this!'...

Its Empowering at its best and to know that this IS a true story and there are still kids out there who Need this...who we can help by making a difference..is just, well as I like to say 'the bees knees'.

The film ends on a great note and I would absolutely see this film again...and again...

I have a new found respect and admiration for Cliff Curtis...from reading what he went through to achieve what he has - nothing short of amazing.... 

Oh and I just found this....worth checking out... a little piece of 'real Aotearoa' in little old 'Gizzy' :D 

If He Can Do it - You Can Do it - Anyone Can Do It!
