The Role Negativity Plays In Manifesting

Is wrong to tune into your ‘negative’ thoughts?

When manifesting, people become more aware of their thoughts, of the words they speak and the way they think about themselves, and so they become very, very paranoid about what many address as ‘ negative thoughts’.

Of course your words have power, of course your thoughts have power and of course the way you think about yourself is powerful.

You are a powerful, divine being!

You are a million to one in a lifetime chance of being yourself, being in this time and space and being blessed with the talents, world view and ability to share joy to others. You are a unique being.

And with great power, comes great responsibilities.

So yes, you do need to be aware of your thoughts, words and actions because they are all working in conjunction to send signals to the Divine Spirit that’s only job is to give you what you demand.

Think of the Universe/ Holy Spirit as a benevolent God that is totally whipped for you. They want to give you every single thing you want, but here’s the catch.

They have to wait for you to tell them what you want ( free will and all that) and they have no real understanding of good / bad, their language is one of energy and the frequency of which that energy vibrates when it reaches them.

So if you’re feeding your fear based state, you’ll get more problems, more reasons to stress to F out and more of all the things you say you don’t want.

Why?

Because that’s all you’re thinking about, all you’re talking about, all you believe and expect will follow you in your life.

So you look for evidence that you are NOT going to make it, and you obsess over it. When asked what you don’t want, you know those answers better than the back of your own hand.  And let’s be honest, we’ve all been in this state for years. All learnt to maneuver around life based on the things we fear ( that’s how we survived).

And that’s also the reason when we do get the things we want, they happen in such a way that it further feeds our fear addiction, our stress and they do not stay good for the length of time they should.

So to move from a fear based state to one of love, so that you actually start getting what you desire , want and are being called to have, you have to do the same thing you’ve been doing with fear, but with love.

So you focus on the things you want,  love the feeling of them, you understand that they will come ( same as with fear, when they do), you find evidence that your life is awesome and moving in a direction of awesome and you allow yourself to connect to you more.

To truly move, you need to address those same ‘negative emotions’, and to do that, you have to tune into them.

They are not here to hurt you, but to feed what you allow them to. They are here to test, to challenge and based on your reaction, your ego ( a vital part of your subconscious personality and the vessel through with the Universe/ Holy Spirit protects you) will continue to feed your thoughts to help you stay safe. This will manifest as either more fear or a feeling of confident intuition.

So no it’s not at all wrong to tune into your ‘negative’ thoughts or emotions. In fact what you should do is allow them to come into your mind, analyze them and listen to what they are actually telling you.

To help you with that, I’m gonna give you an exclusive exercise taken from the Level Up Journal Prompter, where you face your feelings and understand what they are actually telling you.


THE FEELINGS


Tune into you right now and just be. No distractions, no interruptions, just be one with your thoughts and breathe as you are guided to, slowly and deeply.

What is an emotion or thought you are resistant to feeling or thinking.

Identify it. Look at it. Is it ultimately true?

What is present underneath that emotion?

Look at that. Is it true?

Feel your way through your various emotions, noticing the stories you’ve been telling yourself.

Observing what you’ve been telling yourself about your life or goals that do not feel good.

Become aware that these are all concepts and ideas that can be shifted.

What idea, concept, or story would feel better than the one you have been telling to yourself?

Take a break for 10 minutes a day at least and focus on the good feelings and thoughts that are now allowed to surround your happy goals.

Why You NEED Solitude

In today’s world, with all the buzzing, deadlines and tons of things to distract you,  the idea of taking time to disconnect and simply listen into your own thoughts is nothing short of alien and may even seem lame, yet, it’s one of the healthiest things you can do for yourself.

Solitude allows you to reboot your brain and unwindConstantly being “on” doesn’t give your brain a chance to rest and replenish itself. Being by yourself with no distractions gives you the chance to clear your mind, focus, and think more clearly. It’s an opportunity to revitalize your mind and body at the same time,” writes Sherrie Bourg Carter Psy.D.

“Solitude provides time for you to think deeply. Day-to-day responsibilities and commitments can make your to-do list seem as if it has no end. This constant motion prevents you from engaging in deep thought, which inhibits creativity and lessens productivity,” she continues.

Solitude allows you to become more comfortable in your own skin and gives you the …

I Finally Took Vacay and The Sky Came For Me!

I’m on vacation and that should mean living at the beach, however, this vacay, I honestly only felt to sleep and wile away the hours in an attempt to feel relax.

( I have been told before that I relax wrong and I wanted to do it right this time!)

That and the fact that for the better portion of this year, I have been unsuccessful in going for a swim!

That all changed on Tuesday, when me and my vacay-pal decide to just get off the couch and go laze in the surf. It was a spur of the moment decision that saw us getting change in record time and on the road to the beach in like 10 minutes.

It was the smartest and silliest thing we had done yet. We managed to grab our towels, but forgot the sun-block, drinking water and everything else, all because of the siren call of cool sea swimming.

The sun was scorching the sands of the beautiful beach as we locked up the car and took in the beauty of the rolling turquoise waves.

I was happy! I was finally-finally at the beach and the sun was still up and the water was calling my name!

But the sun was not playing around!

It was so hot, that just recording a short video for my IG was difficult and I could feel and see the sweat dripping down my face the moment my feet touched the powdery grains of sand, courtesy of my phone.

The beach itself was quiet,  afterall it was a work day for everyone else, still I had not expected to see the place so open and underpopulated.

There was one family in the water and just miles of sandy shores and gentle waters…exactly what the doctor ordered.

So we decide to leave the family a wide berth and find our own chill spot further down the beach and by ‘chill spot’ I mean a shady, forgiving spot that would save us from the cruel sun rays.

We ended up basically on the other side of the beach, which I decided was far enough- really though, I was tired of walking and was ready to dump our stuff under the thicket of trees we had discovered.

That’s when we saw the  ‘warning’ under the tree, instructing us to NOT be under them especially in the rain, because apparently that particular tree is poisonous.

(…my question of course is why is that tree lining all of the beach then?)

We move away and decide to just rest our stuff close to the surf, but far enough away that they are not under the tree, but still on the powdery sand dunes.

The running joke  between me and my friend for this year is that I have yet to submerge myself into the waves of the sea, infact the last time, I got anywhere near the water,  it was too late to go swimming, so I just literally stuck a toe in.

This time I was determined would be different.

I had not taken proper vacation in what felt like five years and I could not handle being so close to shimmering water and not becoming the mermaid I am at heart, by diving into the beautiful depths.

Only problem, – the area we chose was surrounded by big rocks sunken into the surf, as if the beach had built a protective wall around itself and it went on for too long for me to simply jump over them safely.

Not one to give into defeat, we decided to move to an area that I could actually get into the water without hurting myself.

And would you believe the moment we did, the sky changed dramatically with dark grey clouds posing ominously above us?

Just as I placed my stuff down and protected my phone, the rain pelted right down.

This was unacceptable.

I refused to believe that my beach day was going to end in a story about how the rain soaked me with it’s pitter patter, so I waded right into the water, telling my friend I would be damned if I got wet solely by rain and not actual waves.

Was I worried about my hair and the fact that I was about to break the golden rule of not getting my hair wet? Yes.

Did that stop me? Nope!

And so there we were in the cold water, close to the shallows enjoying the rain as well as  the fact that we were now the only two people in the water. It was freeing and for the first time in a really, really long time, I truly felt as if I was on vacation.

My brain was not filled up with marketing plans, with fears over upcoming bills, with plaguing self doubts, instead I was preoccupied by a jumping school of small fish and this medium sized almost translucent fish that seemed determined to use me as his own version of shade and hiding spot.

I was just enjoying myself and making jokes and letting the sea soothe me and it felt amazing!
Self care is so important and in the past I can admit that when it came to really taking care of me and listening to what my body was telling me, I was a bit military in my mindset.

I would check to see if I was healthy enough to work and as long as I was, then I was fine.

In my mind if I had time to rest or enjoy myself, then I should be doing something more ‘productive’ and it’s only recently, when I have had the time to truly check my behavior,  that I had no choice but to see how idiotic that kind of thinking truly is.

My body and mind needed a break, it needed rest and time off from the mental stressors I had been flaying it with and so this vacation has been the best thing ever!

It takes practice to keep relaxing and not give into the very real urges to almost guiltily jump back into work and don the familiar blanket of my life burdens, even when I meditate my intuition tells me to relax and let things come to me, rather than me jumping all over the place.

It’s weird for me to pause, and to give my attention to something other than my hunt for wealth and entrepreneurial validation, but I am glad I gave myself the time and space to grow and stretch, because it made me look critically at the lifestyle I was hell-bent on nurturing.

On the mindset I was still operating from and that it was not ok.

I wanted a life of ease, simplicity and authenticity, yet I was making my own life difficult, stressful and full of intense pressures.  So that meant taking real actions to nurture the lifestyle I claim to want and was praying for.

That meant turning my gaze away from work and firmly onto myself.

It was terrifying.

I rarely ever even take a day off, but I took time for over a week and counting and I slept so much!

And honestly, I feel refreshed, I wake up happier, less scared and guarded and while life will throw a lot of plot twists at you, I can honestly say that I am enjoying my time off and my vacation brain.

I already feel more creative and almost accustomed to having shoulders that don’t slump or  aching as they attempt to keep themselves up.

I gave myself permission to enjoy myself, to look beyond my many challenges right now and take in the much larger picture and that made me realise how ensnared I really was.

Self care for me, is this week of rest, of  pausing on the challenges and giving the happy-meter a serious dial up, because I am human and there will always be challenges, but there won’t always be a me.

These experiences won’t always be here and I prefer to take the break now that I’m healthy and can enjoy it, rather than when I’m sick and cranky.

It’s all mindset and perspective and I’m understanding that more and more daily!

So what about you? What does down time look like for you and how often do you allow your mind and body to fully relax?


The Key to Feeling Young Again

Beauty tips, cute clothes, hours logged in the gym and a strict diet regimen-, these are the things that we turn to when we want to feel happy again; when we want to recapture the spark of our youth, and make our bodies feel GREAT again!

And all of those things work, they help us to be healthier, to feel more confident and to even look at the world with a wider, more rose tinted and relaxed lens, however, these things are not enough.

They are perfect and essential for a balanced life don’t get me wrong, but these things are only half of the coin when it comes to being truly healthy and living that youthful life.

So what is the other half?

It’s the intangible side of you; it’s the part of you that controls your desires, your emotions and even whether you even do any of the above activities!

It’s the side of you that allows you to perceive the world around you and lives right in your heart.  Mental and mindset health don’t always get the credit and due diligence they deserve and over time we have tried to make them sound much better, talking about self care, self love, passions and goals.

No matter what you call it, this intangible side of you is the difference between you reaching your goals and living the kind of life you desire or you feeling muggy, stuck and n stasis, crumpled by stress.

This side of you, the side that should be ruled by your intuition also needs exercise, it needs to be nourished and it needs to be maintained so that you feel not only young again but energetic and unconditionally happy.

It is what will allow you to face your fears, conquer your challenges and stand back up with a huge grin on our face when you are knocked down.

To guide you towards the balanced health of that side of you, we at Ashlee Unscripted created the Level Up Journal Prompter.

LEVEL UP YOUR LIFE BY LETTING YOUR REAL FEARS, DESIRES AND STRATEGIES POUR OUT OF YOU WITH THIS UNIQUE AND EFFECTIVE GUIDE


This book will take you on an insightful journey through your own life and help you to paint the picture of who you intend to grow into next.

It tackles some of the most common pain points as well as pleasure centres  of that side of you and allows you space to vent out not only your frustrations, but also the things you really, really, really want!

Journaling has always been a great way for me to bring the things in my subconscious out into the open where I could look at them and really see them, really acknowledge these wants, desires and also the hurdles.

Says, Ashlee Cox, author of the Level Up Journal Prompter.

This particular book is filled with prompts, insights and actionable tasks that I myself took when I was going through a mindset transition and I felt awful, but knew there had to be more to this and as I face the pain points, I created the journal as well.”

This is a labour of love she is quick to point out and as such she admits that she was skeptical of compiling the questions and thought s she had gone through into a product and release it into the world, but over time, when more of her readers responded to her messages on trying to get their life on track, and expressing their want to feel younger, happier and like they were growing into an enhanced version of themselves, she put the prompter for sale.

It is really for anyone who is trying to figure their life out and want to get back to heart and center. It’s for the person who wants to truly feel young again and be really healthy, because they are taking care of both sides of themselves and allowing themselves to truly grow!” said Ashlee.

Some of the topics covered within the prompter include, reconnecting to the self, repurposing limiting beliefs and conquering mental blocks, understanding the importance of energy and what you are expending yours on, as well as breaking down manifesting abundance and understanding how energy ties it all together.
