The Power of Focus

What I’d like to talk about this month is the Power of Focus – how much we can achieve if we truly put our minds to it and stay on track.

Recently I decided that I needed to go to Bali to write my book about my trip to Hawaii as I was allowing myself to get easily distracted at home by anything and everything. Its’ amazing how clean and uncluttered the house can get when I’m attempting to write or complete a project that I’ve procrastinated about for a long time. Anyway, off to Bali I go with a commitment to myself to write every morning after meditation and breakfast. Well I kept my end of the bargain and almost completed the project in only 11 days.

I had applied to myself some of the principles I had shared with clients over the years about setting goals, giving myself time limits, seeing the Bigger Picture then breaking it down into tasks that were achievable etc etc. I had coached people on Making Their Dreams Realities since the 1980’s and finally decided to apply this to my own life.

Needless to say I have achieved amazing feats since early September – Books are getting written, Meditation CD’s are being recorded, anointing oils are being made, albums are being formulated, new essences developed and on and on it goes.

I have also started up my online coaching business to assist others to Make Their Dreams Realities also. I have a real gift for helping others find what they’re passionate about, applying this to their lives with purpose and focusing on the vision of how they’d like their Dream Life to be.

My experiences of late have taught me the Power of Focus to get results and have left me excited and driven to do more. In amongst it all though is that need for balance – a time to just BE also, that time to walk on the beach, smell the spring flowers, meditate and relax. When we create that balance in our lives is when the magic happens!

Last Sunday afternoon, after two huge days at an NLP seminar, I organised a gathering down at Point Walter for the 10th of the 10th of 2010 – a powerful turning point.

Well the wind and rain Goddesses were out in full force but the small group of “die-hards” (as my friend’s husband described us) endured the elements and were blessed with GRACE. As we did our ceremony at the waters’ edge to bring healing to the Swan River and all the waterways around the earth, Grace joined us in the shape of a black swan which swam over and lingered at our feet with full eye contact for the whole time. Then when we fought the howling gale across to the other side we asked for mercy from the wind goddess – thanking her for cleansing our auras and blowing out all the cobwebs and stillness came. We performed our next ceremony in calmness and peace then turned around to see the most beautiful rainbow ending in the river where the swan had been, soon after, four sea eagles appeared up above, we watch the beautiful sunset and dined by the waters’ edge with the seagulls before heading home. Needless to say that although it appeared to be pouring with rain all around us, we all went home dry.

So I leave you with two messages

1.       With focus anything is possible, and

2.       Balance creates magic

Have a wonderful month and blessings to all. If you’d like to get on track and Make Your Dreams Realities with my help feel free to enrol yourself in my coaching program.
