Smiling at strangers

Smile! How good does that feel to stretch those cheek muscles. It takes less muscles (& energy) to smile than to frown. So why don’t we do it every minute of the day? That might be creepy & result in an aching face.

Back when I lived in London taking the underground every day to get around there was an under written rule to not make eye contact on the tube let alone smile at people. You would be classed as a nutter, stared at and possibly assaulted ‘apparently.’ How sad is that hey?

Since I’ve transformed my life into one lead by Soul – love & happiness radiating, I find myself smiling at random people (strangers) all the time especially on the train. I am ‘that’ person now! The one I used to fear or class as a crazy. It’s so nice to send a stranger a smile. The reception I get is so wonderful. How can you not welcome and recipitate a beaming smiling happy face? I get more people smiling back at me than scowl.

Just this morning as I was walking to the ticket barriers at Perth underground I saw the ticket inspector sitting on his stool. I was totally in mid walking meditation mode so I wasn’t 100% present in my physical body. I half smiled as I tagged off. The inspector then said “only half a smile today?” I stopped turned on my heel and said in my most cheery, heart felt voice “I’m so sorry, good morning how are you today?” He beamed back and said it looked like I was in my own world so that was okay. We shared a few more seconds of conversation before I headed off on my way with a full smile on my face.

I’m always dropping into my yoga classes the suggestion to ‘smile.’ Especially when I can see my students are struggling hard. It instantly lightens the energy and takes the serious edge off. It helps your body relax too, releases tension and floods your body with light. Smiling puts people at ease. I often finish my classes & my face is aching. One of my colleagues told me she could feel my smile through out the whole class. Job done. Smiles radiate love and that is what makes the world go round. Remember the law of nature what you give out you instantly receive back.

Give it a go smile freely and openly today, no fear or judgment. Shine your light bright!

One Year Today

It’s been exactly one year ago to this date I started my journey that has lead me to be where & whom I am today. It’s been one year since I started the 12 week Advanced Mentoring Program with Elizabeth Peru. This course of study I can not praise enough as it really did change my life. Read this post for more details.

A year on I can not believe how much I have changed for the better. My brief for the program was met beyond my expectations. (I’ll talk more about that in tomorrow’s post) I have discovered why I am here & what my life purpose is. Everybody is so different. I can not guarantee you the same success I achieved by working with Elizabeth. I can say if you put in the effort & truly want to embrace a change in your life in the right direction lead by your Soul you may get the results you are aiming for.

It’s not just twelve weeks, finish it and then stop. The Advanced Mentoring sets you up with life skills you can live every day for the rest of your life. The course material is there for you any time you need it. I was referring to it just the other day. As we grow & expand things will take on a different meaning. Reading back my notes I could see how far I have come and how much ‘I get it now.’

I am so grateful for Elizabeth’s guidance & support over the past year. Despite completing the full Merit Mastery program now I know this is not the end of the relationship. I am out there on my own, I actually always have been as it’s me doing the work for myself. I have gained the skills to figure things out for myself more quickly and with less need for reassurance from others. I can see though as I develop further on my path I may well still need to check in from time to time for some clarity from my mentor. We never stop learning. Even if my sessions become more of a chat to share what I’m up to from a feedback for the program point of view then that’s how it shall be.

I wish all the July 29th new mentees well on their new journey. Enjoy the ride, I loved it!

We’ve all heard the saying ‘caring is sharing.’ Isn’t it the greatest feeling when you have something so wonderful you just want everyone to be a part of it too?

I set up this blog with the intent of sharing my knowledge with anyone who wished to receive it. I am sharing what I’ve learned in order to be of service to others. Deep down though it did not faze me that maybe no one will read. That did not bother me in the slightest. My writing is for me primarily, my outlet and my joy. If other’s wished to come along for the ride, hop on board.

The knowledge I have gained through hours of meditation, mentoring, study and healing is now embedded deeply enough into my daily life it is ready to be shared. I am still learning, a lot, there is so much knowledge to discover (or re-discover from past lives) & access I need to impart some of this wisdom to make room for some more. Empty my glass to refill it it’s a continuous cycle.

The act of giving or sharing works hand in hand with the law of nature. The two-way exchange, there is an equal and opposite to everything. Like breathing, we breathe in so we must breathe out. The more your give the more you will be re-given too. Don’t get me wrong this can easily be misinterpreted as selfish. I do not give solely because I want something material back in return this is not the point. The receiving or re-giving might not be obvious at first and may not be a ‘material’ return but you do get an instant result the moment you give out.

Let me explain further. In writing these blog posts I am sharing with you all and the instant return I receive back is pleasure. I love writing. My words go out as I type, my return is the joy of creating that I receive straight back. It makes me feel good, even though the post isn’t live yet the process is fulfilling. Even if I never publish this piece I am still giving out a part of me into the physical world. Following along?

Only the past week I have really noticed how far I have come in following my life path. I am comfortable enough and living authentically that life is not a struggle. I am flowing perfectly the way I am meant to be. It’s a constant rollercoaster ride for sure but I ‘trust’ its part of my plan.

Other’s are noticing the change in me too and are being drawn to me. Just like on a hot sunny day we flock outside to be in the sunlight. When a person’s ‘light’ is radiating strongly people are drawn to them. Okay it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. I attract some undesired attention that I need to dig deep to see if these people truly are seeking my help or just wanting to feed off me. (Think Energy Vampires) By emitting my love and happiness to the world, it allows others to discover their own love and happiness. You can’t help but feel happy around positive, cheery people hey? That’s not selfish is it?

The greatest pleasure I get from working on purpose is to see my friends and clients flourish off their own back. I plant a seed for them, sometimes indirectly and they run with it. Usually the answers they are seeking are right under their noses or deep inside them. They just need to slow down, be still and ‘ta da’ they find their solution. It’s truly beautiful to watch. I love getting the feedback and the excited stories how one tiny hint from me accelerates them way beyond where they were. Actually it is all ‘them’ they are doing the work for themselves, it’s the only way any of us can progress forward. I’m just a tiny, tiny element of the process. Most people I work with are so busy rushing around inside their own heads and over thinking they miss the obvious. I’m there to gently steer them back inside where their answers lie. How do I know all this? Because I’ve done it myself in my own life & it works. Yes we are all different but we can all start at the same simple point of stillness and forge our own direction from there.

Go forth today and share your light with those around you. See how you feel, as this energy is re-given back to you instantly. Be careful also, if you radiate bad feelings of negativity they’ll come right back at you too. Keep it happy!

Love Seren xx
