Stay strong and carry on
Clients often ask me why do some people never get ahead no matter how hard they work and everything seems to come so easy for others?
When facing hardships, it’s often difficult to put everything into perspective.And I think what they are really saying is, ‘This is how the world seems to me right now.’ We all have times when things come easily and times when we face a struggle… but at such times we lose the ability to remember how we felt when it was all the other way around!
So stay strong and keep on keeping on, because things will eventually get better. It may be stormy right now but it can’t rain forever.

Many who are feeling a low often dress in dark colours or black to reflect their low mood.
So to reverse the trend and to lift your spirits try to brighten your wardrobe by introducing more vibrant colours.
Scientific research has proven that wearing colours such as yellow, orange, and blue and green can really help improve depression
So if you suffer in this way make sure that every day you try to wear bright colours and also open the windows of your home to let in fresh air and hopefully a little sunshine.
A walk every day to enjoy the colourful sights of Mother Nature will also help to boost your mood.

Romany Depression Cure
The Romany philosophy is that depression attracts depression like a vibration. To ward it off play happy music or mix with happy people. Alternatively, walk to a hilltop to literally rise above your problem. Looking down on roads, cars, houses, and people makes them appear in a better perspective.
Romanies always try to look on the bright side of any situation. However, if that is not so easy, try this Romany antidote to the blues.
Peel several cloves of garlic and place them in a saucer. Pour white vinegar over the cloves until they are partly immersed in it. Place the saucer beside your bed while you sleep. The garlic is said to turn pink as it absorbs the negative energy from you and quickly lifts your mood.
The cloves should be buried in the morning and replaced by fresh cloves at night until the depression lifts.

Accentuate The Positive
Instead of assuming today is going to be the same as yesterday, and the day before that, wake up believing that today is a brand-new day. See every morning as a fresh start full of wonderful opportunities for you. You just have to be open to the positive vibrations and the universe will respond.
Think of it as a sort of ‘veninding machine’. The more positive energy you put in, the more positive energy you get out.
Place a picture of something that inspires you by your bed. If you want to achieve wealth, make it bank notes, if you want to find love, put a photo of a heart. This will be the first thing you see in the morning and the last thing you see at night and it will automatically seep into your unconscious mind.
Mix it up
Change your daily routine and be willing to step out of your comfort zone. Instead of travelling the same way to work, try a different route, eat out at a different place you’ve never been to before, take the train instead of the bus, go shopping in a different town, go the cinema instead of renting a DVD.
By going different places and seeing different things you never know who you may meet or what may happen. Lucky opportunities don’t just come knocking on your door, you have to go out and look for them too!

Five Holistic Therapies Said To Change Your Life
Alternative practitioners have been busy in recent times finding new ways of working with the mind, body and spirit. And many have simply been adding intuition or psychic ability to approaches that have been around for centuries. As a result, an increasing number of therapies today have a strong spiritual base. Here’s the top five to look out for:
Future Life Progression
By using a light meditative state, Future Life Progressionists say that they can work with clients to help them effectively move through the quantum soup as far ahead into their own future as they need to see the ultimate outcome of their current course of action. Based on the notion that our future is not set in stone, clients can then decide to change their course of action in the present – and therefore alter their future – or look back from where they want to be and refine their route to get there.
Neuroscientists have identified a number of different frequencies or patterns that our brains emit. Theta waves are produced when you are deeply relaxed and when you’re dreaming. You can evoke this Theta state through meditation to enhance creativity, but Theta Healing Practitioner claim that they are able to work with clients to access the same state and alter their beliefs and thoughts, which in turn ripples out to create change across all areas of life.
Shamanic healing has been around for thousands of years. Across the world, many shamans use the healing properties of plants in treatment, but healing work is often done through a process called journeying. Unlike other forms of treatment, it is the practitioner who enters an altered state and journeys on behalf of the client to effect healing. Many approaches and techniques are used. For example, in a Soul Retrieval, Shamanic Practitioners say that they can coax back parts of a soul fragmented by trauma to restore a revived sense of wholeness in the client.
Intuitive Life Coaching
Life Coaching is said to focus on helping clients work out what they want and then arrive at strategies to achieve desired goals. Intuitive Life Coaches say that they combine psychic or intuitive abilities with Life Coaching techniques to add an extra edge to the work, helping clients make effective changes and achieve desired goals.
Astrologers consult charts drawn up from a person’s time, place and date of birth to glean information about what influence the planets have had on their personality and the themes and events that are likely to play out in their life. An Intuitive Astrologer will add psychic perception to such information. Modern astrologers believe that people co-create their destinies and say that they work with clients to harness the energy of the planets to support them in achieving what they want in life.

Feel the Fear and Create Your Own Future
Change can be scary for many people but it’s also the pathway to our liberation. Top selling French/Cuban author, the late Anais Nin, once said “And then the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
If there is something in your life you need to let go of, from an unhealthy relationship to negative patterns of behaviour, try writing down and answering these five questions to free yourself from the paralysis of self- doubt and into a new found freedom:-
- What am I no longer willing to have as part of my life?
- What do I want instead?
- What stops me saying goodbye to what I no longer want once and for all?
- What will it cost me if I continue to have this in my life?
- What do I commit to doing to bring in or create space for the new?
Even if you sit there for an hour not knowing what to write in response… try breathing deeply, relaxing , and trusting yourself that you know that you know the answer, even if you aren’t conscious of it yet, it will gradually start to surface from the depths of your unconscious mind.
The most important thing is to do something, no matter how small, even if you can’t do it with a full heart and total conviction. Don’t wait until you believe change is possible. Don’t wait to feel good to do something that will do you good. Do it, and eventually you’ll catch up with yourself and build momentum to go on and make your own dreams come true.
This is particularly powerful if you are trying to move on from say a relationship that, for whatever reason, has ended. Ask yourself just how much you are prepared to inconvenience yourself to start a new and very different life. The British Racing Driver, Nigel Mansell who later became a Forumula One World Champion in 1992 knew all about inconveniencing himself. He gave up a secure job, sold everything he owned and lived in his car whilst he was trying to establish himself as a professional driver. He even at one point discharged himself from hospital with a broken neck ( albeit in a collar) against medical advise to take part in a race. But eventually through his own efforts he he achieved his dream to stand on the podium and take the trophy as the World’s number one! Whilst there is no need to perhaps make such drastic sacrifices as Mr Mansell- you must be prepare to take some action. Life passes very quickly. Why let more months slip by without making an effort to change things for the better? Each week after starting this process, revisit what you have written and answer the following questions:-
- What new things have come into my life as a result of the actions I have taken?
- What have I noticed about me, or the way that others respond to me, since making changes?
- Is there anything else I can do to support myself in creating my new life?
You may suprise yourself by just how much progress you’ve made in a short space of time. And remember you’ve nothing to loose but everything to gain!

Colour Healing Your Home
If there have been a lot of upsets and emotional issues in your home in the past, you may be looking for a simple way to dispel any negativity. A brilliant way to do this which will also at the same time bring an energy boost to your home, is to think about the colours that you use in each room. Every colour vibrates with a particular kind of energy, so you can use different hues to set moods or deliberately draw in more of what you want the ambiance of any particular room to be about.
When you’re thinking about using colour in your home, you don’t have to go overboard. You can think in terms of flowers, candles, panels, crystals, paintings, curtains or cushions rather than floor to ceiling washes. Take a look at each colour below to learn more about the energy associated with each.
Pink is the colour of unconditional love and beauty. Go for the soft pinks rather than the bubblegum hues to give any room a gentle, loving energy. It brings a sense of peace and comfort. Many prisons in America use pink to calm inmates! Pink is comforting and relaxing but make sure there is a balance of colours as pink can overwhelm some men.
As you can imagine, red is an immensely energetic colour that can really stir things up and bring things to a head! It is the colour of passion (and incidentally the root chakra, the centre of our life force!). Fabulous for the boudoir in small touches but if you have a fiery personality one to be avoided! It is also not a good colour if you have high blood pressure.
White can make a room feel pure and clean, but floor to ceiling white can start to feel a bit clinical, so break it up with other colours from the rainbow palette. it’s a great colour if you feel you have cluttered thoughts.
No surprises for getting that this colour is associated with the earth and a sense of grounding. Used wisely, it can lend an air of stability and order.
Orange is another ‘hot’ colour that, when cleverly used, can quite literally bring the sun in to any room. It symbolises energy and has a lot of staying power. The more mellow blends can create chill out havens. Orange is the colour of sexuality so can give you a creative and sensual boost. Avoid painting a kitchen orange as it’s said to increase your appetite.
This rich colour is linked with wealth, but also abundance and wisdom. Gold fabrics bring a real touch of luxury. It’s also a great colour of personal protection.
Purple is the colour of Royalty. Majestic and magical, purple can bring the unconscious to your conscious intention, so if you ever sleep in a purple room, pay attention to your dreams. It can bring a sense of belonging and confidence.
Yellow brings in the energy of happiness and lightness into a room and is also linked with quick thinking. A beautiful colour in its own right, it can also be seen as a paler version of gold and so is also believed to bring wisdom, perhaps aided by faster thought! It’s a lovely colour to use because you can simply enjoy the energy it brings without feeling the need to leap up and do anything. It’s the colour of the solar plexus so can help bring a stronger sense of self and self esteem.
Associated with nature, the colour green symbolises life itself and the right shade in the right touches can make a room feel light and vibrant. Green is the colour associated with the heart chakra and is also believed to balance the eyes and bring a sense of wellbeing.
Blue is considered to be one of the most spiritual colours and is linked with calmness. It’s also associated with meditation, so use it in the area you set aside for any regular practice. Blue is the colour of the throat chakra and so is brilliant if you have problems expressing yourself. It is quite a detached colour so it’s not ideal for the bedroom but perfect for the bathroom.

How thinking of yesterday can make you happy today
The best way to make yourself feel happier is to think of something good that happened to you the day before, latest research shows.
Volunteers who were asked to recall a pleasant event from the previous 24 hours got an instant 15 per cent boost in cheerfulness.
Other popular techniques, such as expressing gratitude
The results come from a mass participation experiment conducted by Professor Richard Wiseman.
The Hertfordshire University psychologist got 26,000 people to go online to try out a selection of mood-boosting techniques.
They were randomly told to carry out an act of kindness, recall a pleasant event from the day before, express gratitude or smile for at least 15 seconds twice a day.
A fifth group carried out a ‘control’ technique for comparison which involved merely thinking about the previous day. All the activities were performed for a week.
Professor Wiseman said: ‘Thinking about one positive thing that had happened the day before appears to have been by far the most effective technique.
‘Compared to those in the control group, this quick and simple procedure provided an additional 15 per cent boost in happiness.’
He found 65 per cent of those recalling something positive had a boost in happiness, compared with 50 per cent of those just thinking about the day’s events.
An act of kindness led to a 9 per cent boost to happiness, while being grateful for an part of your life led to an 8 per cent rise.
Making a conscious effort to smile and hold it made people also made people more cheerful.

10 Morning Mood Boosters
Have you ever noticed that what happens during the morning hours often sets the tone for the rest of the day? When things go smoothly, you tend to feel more relaxed and ready to face whatever the day may bring. However, when things get bumpy before you’ve even managed to get dressed, you’re more likely to remain grumpy until bedtime. While some hassles can’t be avoided, you can make mood-enhancing decisions during the a.m. hours that will set the stage for the next 16 or so. Here’s some tips from the experts and combined with the latest research for 10 pick-me-ups that will have your mood rising like the morning sun. Try one (or all!) of them for a happier and healthier you.
1. Pick one “spoil-me” task to do.
When you wake up, give yourself 30 seconds to think of at least one nice thing you can do for yourself that day…and then do it. When Alice Domar, PhD, psychologist and coauthor of Live a Little! Breaking the Rules Won’t Break Your Health, was in Los Angeles for a book tour one winter, she woke up much earlier than usual. But instead of worrying about lost zzz’s, she got up and did a little early morning shopping at a nearby morning market. She spent an hour or so browsing the bright colourful stalls and buying a few little items for herself. This trip was something that she would never normally have time to do in her normal busy life in her home town and the impromptu side trip kept her mood lifted throughout the day.
2. Eat a well-balanced meal.
Start your morning with a nutritious mix of complex carbohydrates and proteins that will last you until lunch, such as oatmeal or toast with peanut butter (include a sprinkle of cinnamon, which one study linked to improved mood and alertness, for an extra boost). Other research found that a moderate amount of caffeine (200 mg, or the amount in about two cups of coffee) elevated mood and mental sharpness, so enjoy some joe or black tea with your breakfast.
3. Get some fresh air.
Head out for some “green exercise”—physical activity performed in an outdoor setting—even if you only have a few minutes to spare. Researchers found that people experienced an enhanced mood and higher self-esteem after just five minutes of various types of green exercise, including walking and gardening. The study also found that exercising near water amplified the effects, so if you live near a lake, river or waterfall, even better.
4. Listen to the sounds of nature.
Capture the benefits of the great outdoors, even if you can’t get outside, by listening to recorded nature sounds. In a recent study, participants recovered from a stressful situation more quickly when they listened to a recorded combination of running water and bird sounds. Open your window in the morning so you can hear Mother Nature’s music as you get ready, or invest in an alarm clock that eases you awake with nature sounds.
5. Focus on feeling good.
Right after waking up, Robyn McKay, PhD, a psychologist based in Tempe, Arizona, and founder of the Smart Girl-Modern Goddess coaching program, recommends taking five deep breaths and making the decision to feel good for the day. “Imagine that, even when you encounter frustrations and surprises, you will remember to breathe and respond mindfully—rather than react mindlessly—to your circumstances,” she says. Dr. McKay also suggests that, throughout the day, you “take five deep, intentional breaths and remind yourself of your decision to feel good.”
6. Drink hot chocolate.
A recent study found that sipping a drink containing cocoa flavonols improved participants’ moods and levels of alertness—even as they worked on a series of challenging math problems. So go ahead and savor some hot cocoa made with lowfat or skim milk and dark chocolate. The protein and carbs in the milk will help keep your blood sugar levels stable until lunch, which will help you hold on to your mood momentum.
7. Take a moment to assess yourself.
Don’t jump out of bed right when you open your eyes in the morning. Instead, take five minutes to pay attention to your body and notice if you feel any stiffness, then do some light stretching while breathing deeply, suggests Lynn Louise Wonders, a psychotherapist and yoga teacher. She notes, “Before racing off to the hundred things on the day’s to-do list, it can be tremendously beneficial to claim these five minutes to tune in to your body and your breath. You’ll find that you are more ‘present’ and better equipped to deal with the busyness of the day ahead.”
8. Envision the negative.
You’ve probably heard that gratitude is a mood elevator, but here’s a surprising twist to that tactic: Think about a positive event from your life—how you got your dream job or met your ideal partner, for instance—and then imagine what your life would be like if the event hadn’t happened. Though it seems like this would have the opposite effect, it actually improved the mood of one study’s participants more so than simply thinking of the positive event itself.
9. Breathe in some mint.
Researchers found that sniffing peppermint enhanced mood and attention while also fighting fatigue. Try keeping a bottle of peppermint essential oil or bag of peppermint tea on your nightstand so you can inhale the positive scents right as you wake up. Another happiness helper is chewing gum, which elevated the moods, alertness and attention spans of another study’s participants. Chew a piece of peppermint gum after breakfast for a double-duty perk-up.
There’s one thing you can do just about anywhere: Smile. “Remember,” says Dr. McKay, “smiling is a simple way to change your mood—and the mood of those around you, too.” So spread your good-mood wealth by baring those pearly whites as often as possible in the morning as well as throughout the day.

5 Top Tips To Achieving Happiness
Every time you think a negative thought, replace it with a positive one. Instead of fuming if another driver cuts you up on the road, think, This is a reminder for me to drive safely. You can also stave off dark thoughts by inserting sunny ones into your daily routine: Recite a mantra like “Life is good” whenever something goes right.2. Do a joy inventory.
Each night, jot down or make a mental list of three things, big or small, that brought a smile to your face that day (you got a seat on the bus; your boss loved your proposal). This happy list will keep your optimism soaring. The more you look out for life’s little joys, the more of them you’ll find.3. Inspire others to smile.
Compliment the checkout girl at the local supermarket or help a sick friend. Making someone else feel good about themselves has a boomerang effect: Seeing their joy, and knowing you made it happen, gives you a warm glow. Plus, when you value others’ well-being, you learn to be kinder to yourself, too — and you become happier as a result.4. Lighten your load.
It’s easy to neglect the things you want to do for the things you’ve have do (such as opening a pile of unopened bills). So build joy boosters into your day: For every “should” you cross off your list, give yourself a treat — even something as simple as taking five minutes to sit and daydream.5. Celebrate the changes.
As you put these ideas to work, tune in to how you’re responding. Maybe you’re smiling more or there’s a new spring in your step. Really bask in the feeling so you’ll be motivated to stick with your joyful habits. And remember: Happiness is a journey guided by the belief that you can always choose joy.
Happy people don’t feel like they have to wait for something to happen before they give themselves permission to enjoy life. When you learn to live in the moment, your world seems a lot less stressful. People who are happy go with where life takes them instead of obsessing over where they should be – and they know that their journey will bring them new opportunities.Q: But that’s just not me. Can I really change who I am?
You can train yourself to think more optimistically. Learn to find the positive by asking a new set of questions when something goes wrong. Instead of Why me? ask, What can I learn from this? and How might this be a gift? Shifting your inner dialogue helps you live in a state of positive expectations.Q: What are the biggest challenges to achieving happiness, and how can I overcome them?
Hanging out with unhappy people can sap our positive energy. To tone down their negativity, try reacting to them in a more positive way. Rather than sympathising as a friends moans about her job, ask what career she’d love to pursue. Also, sometimes the steps toward happiness involve work, like leaving a bad relationship. Remind yourself that the decision to make that change is often the hardest part – and that you’ll be happier once you get to the other side.

Ever wondered why some people seem to get all the luck? According to new research, it’s just all down to state of mind. The experts have given us five golden rules to help you make the most of life’s twists and turns.
The best opportunities arise when you approach life with a flexible mind-set. here’s how to change how you think…
- ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIPS
If you think this way…
‘Here’s my checklist. he has to be smart, attractive, financially secure, love cooking and love dogs.’
Try this approach instead..
‘I don’t really have a type. I’m open to anyone as long as he’s a good person.’
If you think this way…
‘I need to finish this project by 11, team meeting at 12, lunch at one, finish that report this afternoon and leave by six.’
Try this approach instead…
‘I want to try to accomplish two major things today, but in my downtime I’m going to explore a few other ideas that could help the company or my career.’
If you think this way…
‘I already have a handful of wonderful friends. I don’t need any more.’
Try this approach instead…
‘I love to make friends even if it never goes further than a Facebook chat.’
If you think this way…
‘I need to get to the dry cleaner, the bank and the supermarket before I have lunch.’
Try this approach instead…:
‘I have to get these things done, but I’m not going to rush because I don’t really know what to expect or whom I’ll meet. It will be interesting to see how it works out.’
- BUSINESS MEETING
If you think this way…
‘I’m meeting up with this person to do a deal, not thinking of them as a friend or a potential partner.’
Try this approach instead…
‘I’ll accept a meeting with anyone, any time, because you never know where it might lead – even if it’s five years down the road.’

Boost your Love Life with A Glass of Love Juice!!
If you feel like you’re not getting enough bedroom action, experts have got the answer: drink some fruit juice.
Researchers have discovered that pomegranate is the number one drink to stimulate the libido (aside from a chilled glass of champagne of course!), with cranberry and orange juice following closely behind.
Pomegranate juice even causes couples to kiss more passionately, according to the study carried out by Pomegreat.
It comes as no surprise that the juice had a greater effect on the men’s sexual appetite than the women’s, causing the men to feel increasingly frisky after a good glug of the drink.
‘We had anticipated that the pomegranate might produce a different effect on mind and body to the other two juices since its health benefits are widely known and have been intensively studied,’ says Duncan Smith, head of the research team.
‘What we wanted to find out was whether pomegranate was equally effective in stimulating the libido – in other words in getting the love juices flowing. Our findings clearly show that they most definitely do, especially for men, and that their effect is far greater than we expected.’
Not only could a swig of Pomegranate spice of your love life, it is bursting with antioxidants, which reduce the risk of heart disease and even prevent dental plaque – truly a superfood!
