4 steps to move forward with confidence

Do you feel that you are not reaching your full potential because of a lack of confidence?
Have you ever experienced the ‘Imposter Syndrome’ where you doubt your abilities and worry about being ‘found out’ in your role at work?
Would you like more confidence to achieve your dreams?

When you lack confidence, it can impact everything and there is no doubt that confidence is inherently linked with success. Confidence is required to communicate with people around you, confidence gives you the power and with confidence comes the ability to assert yourself in challenging situations, influence, build trust and connect with people.

So what is confidence? Where does it come from and how can we get more of it?

You may believe that if you have enough knowledge this will increase your confidence.  Yet so many highly qualified people feel they are not worthy of the jobs they do. Confidence isn’t about knowing it all.

‘Air of confidence’?  You can sense it from a persons’ body language and the way they speak but the reality is, confidence is a state of mind that is directly linked with our thoughts and emotions.  Thinking positively and letting go of old limiting beliefs will help your confidence to skyrocket.

4 steps to move forward with confidence

1) Think Positive – Practising the Meditation on Twin Hearts has been shown to help your thought patterns become more positive and in turn, this will help you grow confidence from the inside.  Try practising this meditation for at least one month and notice the subtle changes in your thought patterns

2) Focus on Success – No matter what task you have in front of you, visualise yourself succeeding. Ensure that you are setting yourself clear goals and break these down into step by step tasks.  This process not only helps you plan and make the goals seem more achievable but helps more energy to flow to your goals.

3)Stand Tall – Posture and body language can have a huge impact on how we feel.  Standing tall with an open posture allows energy to circulate through our entire body, invoking chemical reactions that can very quickly give you a sense of power and boost in confidence, perfect if you have an important meeting or presentation to give.

4) Erase Your Fears – Deep-rooted fears can prevent you from confidently moving forward.  Understanding and learning systematic techniques to remove these fears can help you take giant strides forward.  These powerful techniques are taught in Pranic Psychotherapy and can be applied to yourself and others.

Discover the confidence to achieve your dreams, believe that you have the power to transform your life. Join us for a wellbeing day.

Crystals have recently been in popular demand as more people become aware of their wonderful healing properties.  Not only can you use them to bring a sense of calm into your life but they can also attract prosperity as well as protect you, your family and your surroundings from what is sometimes termed as ‘psychic attack’   In order to truly learn the secrets of crystals and how to harness their powers then come along to our next Pranic Crystal Healing course this October.

Pictures hanging on our walls are used for visual impact but what emotions do they evoke in you when you look at them?  If you find yourself being drawn to sad, dark or chaotic art then ask yourself why?  Being exposed to certain pictures could be creating more stress in your life so look more to what will inspire and uplift you.   Pictures have an effect on your mood so surround yourself with ones that emanate positivity bringing harmony, stability, good health and abundance into your home and work life.

Plants are an easy and useful way to clean up your environment as well as bring a little bit of nature inside to improve your mood.  The cactus plant often seems to feature as a stylish addition to fashionable interiors but in fact, these plants can help a great deal to remove stress and negative energy from your home or workspace with a few simple techniques.  Learn more at the Psychic Self Defence course in October, to book go to www.pranichealinginireland.com/eventschedule/

 

Incense has long been used in many cultures and traditions around the world as a daily ritual and for very good reason as it is highly efficient in cleansing any undesirable energies.  Whether someone has been radiating intense worry in the bedroom or there have been angry exchanges in the kitchen, we can walk into those spaces and unknowingly absorb and take on these feelings into our own emotional system.  Once we understand the benefits of lighting incense, try Sandalwood for effective disintegrating properties, you find that all negativity dissipates making way for a fresh welcoming space to enjoy being in.

Why These Prosperity Courses Can Change Your Life?

Many people embark on a journey to learn Pranic Healing as a means to help themselves take control of their health and wellbeing. In addition to understanding your energy, the key to helping improve your life also lies in the energy of the environment around you. This is the study of Pranic Feng Shui and is one of the prosperity courses taught by Master Co in the UK in September, where you’ll:

  • Learn how energy flows and moves in and around your environment
  • Know to make subtle alterations to your daily habits for success
  • Structure your life in ways that will harness and utilise positive energy around you

We live in a sea of energy and the energy around you has the potential to impact your health, relationships and finances. When it comes to your home, the energy flowing into and out can significantly impact every corner of your life.

By harnessing the positive subtle energies that flow through your living space or workspace, you can maximise your potential for success.

Different types of energy flow from different directions, therefore, the aspect of your front door, the layout of your bedroom, the placement of certain objects and many other factors will impact the energy in your home.  By gaining an understanding of the energy of your environment, the energy associated with the objects in your house and the orientation of everything around you, you can harness the positive energies to benefit your health, wealth and relationships.

One man had a dramatic improvement in his health having taken these courses by making a very simple change to the way his bed was facing!

To help push yourself towards your goals, understanding the science and art of materialization is also key.  Are there things in your life you’ve been ‘wanting’ for a long time but somehow they haven’t quite happened yet?

Our thoughts and emotions play such a huge role in everything that comes to us and sometimes we can be blocking our way without realising.

In addition to our thoughts, the habits and rituals that we carry out each day,  subconsciously, play a large part in the success of our life. By learning to harness the power of your thoughts and by establishing a structure to your day that helps to generate positive energy, you can achieve material and financial success.

Unlock your true potential by gaining a deeper understanding of the energy around you and learn techniques to help create a healthy and abundant life.

Travel Delays – 4 Fantastic Ways to Stay Happy & Calm

You’re excited about your long-awaited holiday and can’t wait to finally get out of your stressful routine and into relaxation mode. However,  before that happens, you need to get there. 

Have you ever had one of those journeys when things didn’t go to plan? 

Although a travel delay can be frustrating, why is it that some people will become outraged and start to shout, yet another person will remain calm and deal with the delay as if it wasn’t even the slightest inconvenience? Is it that the former has more important matters to attend to? More important people to see?  Whilst this may be the case for some, others may be negatively reacting to what they perceive as a taxing situation.

Feelings of panic can arise when you’re caught off guard to an unexpected delay.  Although we know that this doesn’t help the situation, sometimes it’s difficult to control our reactions.

Here are  4 fantastic ways to stay happy and calm  

  1.   Be Prepared

First of all, accept that delays are possible. It makes good sense to plan extra time to allow for traffic jams and cancellations. Ensure you are packed the night before to avoid a last-minute rush in the morning.  By doing this you can keep stress levels down. Bring something that will help if faced with a delay, like a good book, magazine, music or journal. 

  1.   Breathe

Don’t underestimate the power of the breath. A couple of minutes deep abdominal breathing can rapidly release stress and tension. When unhelpful thoughts are spiralling out of control,  stress hormones are triggered which causes you to breathe more quickly to deliver more oxygen-rich blood to the body. Slowing down your breathing will help to stop this ‘fight or flight’ response and allow your mind to think more clearly and logically. 

  1.   Stay Positive

Being positive goes a long way, and every situation can be turned around if you allow it to. Many great things come from a structured and planned approach. However, there’s something to say for spontaneity and creativity. It’s important to keep an eye out for opportunities that are sometimes disguised. Maybe the delay will force you to sit down with a coffee and a chance to think about things you have put off due to your overactive life. Or perhaps you will have that ‘chance’ encounter that could lead to a special conversation or a connection with a long lost friend. If we don’t open ourselves up to possibilities and just stick to unhelpful thinking, we will only limit ourselves and miss some wonderful opportunities.

  1.   Attract Better Outcomes

When you focus on the negatives in a situation, you may notice that more negativity arises in your life. You may encounter a rude staff member at the airport, and all you do is think about how this made you feel, causing you to get angrier by re-living the experience. Once you get into this state, it’s hard to get out of this negative spiral. Your entire physical body changes along with the energy that you radiate, causing people to be wary of any interactions with you. However, if you are in a positive state, people will be drawn to your smile and energy and respond accordingly with kindness. 

There is much more to life than meets the eye. Energy is a significant factor in our everyday interactions and how we choose to focus our attention will determine our outcomes. So the next time you decide to wallow in a perceived unfortunate circumstance or situation, remember that you are in control of how you perceive something. So take a breath and be aware of your thoughts and actions, as they will ultimately determine your state of being. 

Happy Travels! 

3 Winning Ways to Bounce back from Sporting Defeat

Have you ever been in a race or match, where the opposition starts winning? If so, you might have felt an urge to fight back, similar to the fight or flight response. Or maybe your mind starts to create a magnitude of negative self-talk and self-doubt. As the mind creates these thoughts, the physical body starts to automate and act in a way that represents this by slowing down or giving up.

It’s the perfect opportunity for any inner beliefs of low self-esteem to pop up and be fed, and before you know it, you are in the hamster wheel of a negative mindset. “ I’m just not good enough”, “ I should have practised more”, “I give up”. Sound familiar?

As we enter into the sporting season, with the Wimbledon Tennis Finals upon us, we watch how dedicated athletes keep their focus and mindset on the match, even with millions of people watching from around the world.

1.Understanding the mind – The main aspect of succeeding

Down, depressed or even angry. It can take anything from a few minutes to a few days to bounce back. But do you bounce back?

We have between 20,000- 80,000 thoughts per day.  Each thought can be likened to a spark of energy. This then sits in what’s called our energy system, which is in and around our physical body. Scientists call this our ‘bioplasmic body’. Within a match, you could be creating a few thousand thoughts.

“In training, everyone focuses on 90% physical and 10% mental, but in competitions, it’s 90% mental. The mind is one of the main aspects of succeeding in sport whatever your level.”  Ben Ainslie, Triple Olympic Gold and Silver Medallist

Statistics show that our mind impacts our performance by over 75% and 3 factors influence sporting ability:

1. Fitness – which can be improved by increasing training

2. Technical skills – improved by study and practice

3. Mental skills

But how do you improve your mental skills or mindset?

 2. The secret to moving forward 

To do this we need to remove the tendency to repeat the pattern, as well as being aware of what improvements need to be made with regards to fitness and technical skills.

3. A new way to get ahead of your competitors

This can be done through a treatment called Pranic Healing. In China, some of the national sports teams have pranic healers to treat the athletes with sports injuries right on the spot, or just give them a boost of Pranic energy if required to achieve peak performance, mental and physical endurance.

Applying Pranic Healing, to remove the repetitive negative thoughts which can hinder the athlete, and replacing with positive thoughts such as courage, good self-esteem and self-worth and It can also work on the physical body by strengthening and energising. Muscle tissue and tendons can be soothed, healed and regenerated, seemingly looking miraculous to the outsider.

Athletes looking to find a marginal gain in their sport can learn the techniques of Pranic Healing for themselves or work with a Pranic Healing Therapist who will understand how to accelerate the rate of recovery of injuries, help them to overcome performance anxiety, improve mental strength and enhance performance.  By working alongside an athlete in this way remarkable results can be achieved.

If you are a therapist such as a physiotherapist, sports massage therapist, counsellor, then by taking the pranic healing classes you can enhance the skills you already use, making the treatment very comprehensive.

End of Term – 5 Ways to Sail through the Summer Holidays

The summer is finally here, and for parents with school children, there’s a long six weeks holiday looming. Many may be feeling relieved at the thought of a break from the rigorous term time routine but for others, this may bring feelings of trepidation about how to juggle childcare, work, daily activities plus how to cope with challenging behaviours that might rear up from children during this time.

Here are 5 simple but effective suggestions to help you sail through the summer:

1.     Downtime and Stillness

The end of term is typically accompanied by extremely tired and emotional children so allowing them to rest and recuperate is a crucial element to the start of any holiday period.    Slower mornings and easy days at home, reconnecting with toys, books and games that don’t involve the internet will help children to relax and clear their minds. The popular ‘Children’s Meditation on Stillness’ by Les Flitcroft is a great technique to introduce to them as it gives them a sense of happiness, calms their emotions and helps them to better manage friendships.

2.     Get Active

Fresh air and physical exercise offer so many benefits to the emotional and mental health of children. Days out will not only help them to discover new places and try new activities, but the fresh air will also help them to unwind and sleep well at night. Days by the seaside are particularly good as they are not only fun, the sea air is extremely therapeutic and enhances feelings of well being.

3.     Plan and create a new routine

Just because you don’t have the rigorous timelines of a typical school day doesn’t mean you can’t establish a “School Holiday” routine for you and the children – albeit a bit more relaxed. Planning the activities and structure of the day with input from the children will help them to feel empowered and encourage collaboration.  For some children, knowing what’s coming next helps them feel safe including retaining a bedtime routine.

4.     Boundaries and Praise

It’s all too easy to take a laid back, no rules approach during the summer holidays, however, children still need both boundaries and praise to feel safe and secure whatever the circumstances. You might want to get input from your children, age-dependent, to help set some of those boundaries (e.g. how many ice creams a week) so it’s all clear up front.  And then, of course, be prepared for those boundaries to be pushed, your buttons to be pressed and for emotions to run high when you say ‘no’ but know that your firmness now will pay off in the future.

5.     Look after yourself

Your own well being is more important than ever when you are out of your normal routine.  Your physical and mental health will have a direct impact on your children and when you are spending so much time together, it’s important that you are feeling good.

Try to build in some ‘me’ time whether it means getting up earlier than normal to do some meditation, in particular, the Twin Hearts Meditation, which is backed by scientific study and has been found to rapidly reduce stress and anxiety, or by planning in time to exercise. Running, dancing, a yoga class or some other activity you enjoy doing, will help revitalise your system, you’ll be less fatigued and have more energy to keep up with the children.

Above all else the summer holidays offer a positive and unique opportunity to reconnect with our children after a busy school year, treasure this time with them.

Try it and notice the difference it makes to how you think and feel.

3) Learn to meditate

Meditation is not just about relaxation. Putting time aside to release feelings of stress and anxiety allows you to calm your mind. This, in turn, helps you to plan and make quicker decisions, enabling you to become more productive in the way you work. Scientifically proven, Twin Hearts is an advanced meditation practised in over 126 countries.

A Mother’s reflection on Wellbeing for Children

According to Mental Health England, one in ten young people experiences a mental health issue at any one time. Enabling them to take care of their physical and mental wellbeing is of utmost importance as it has a direct impact on their future.  

Even in the absence of any trauma experienced in childhood, navigating the natural emotional ups and downs of hormonal changes, family dynamics, working out where they fit in and now the pressures of social media can be enough to trigger one of many mental health issues.  

Reflecting back on my own childhood, which was not without emotional turbulence, there’s no doubt that children nowadays are facing more pressures than ever and statistics seem to back up my own observations. It, therefore, feels paramount that we arm our children with a full tool kit of techniques they can employ to help build resilience to whatever life throws at them.

When I first discovered Pranic Healing and the techniques I could learn, I had no idea of the value it would bring to my whole family, particularly my children.  

This has played out in two distinct ways.

  1.     Helping myself has had direct positive benefits on those around me:

How many times have your children ‘played up’ when you’ve been in a bad mood?  Children are highly sensitive to energy and it’s certainly no coincidence that when you’re not feeling so good, your child’s behaviour may start to deteriorate.  As I started to learn more and more about energy, I see this more clearly than ever.

  1.     Being able to apply the techniques I’ve learnt on my children:

My eldest son has been open and receptive to me applying Pranic Healing on him since the day I started learning, at which point he was three years old.  Even now, five years later, he will ask for healing if he’s under the weather. Helping with physical pain has been wonderful but even more powerful has been the psychotherapy techniques that I’ve seen help him through periods of change.

The benefits I’ve witnessed to young people go beyond my own family and those young people I’ve treated one-to-one. Many Pranic therapists have been running relaxation and wellbeing sessions in schools and the community across the UK and Ireland.  

The sessions aim to give children some valuable ‘me’ time, enable them to deal with challenging emotions and help them overcome commonly occurring stress and anxiety.  The testimonials from the children, parents and teachers speak volumes about the power of what these simple and easy to implement techniques can do. At the heart of it all is the ability to become aware of oneself.

Helping young people to build self-awareness and equipping them with tools to help deal with the emotions and experiences that come with growing up is vital to enable them to take control of their own physical and mental wellbeing.
