Time to start giving back … A special Charity for the Month

It has always been one of my goals to make enough money to give to charity on a regular basis.

I have always said one day I will be able to give to charity but I feel that one day never seems to come.

I am hoping that giving to charity NOW even when I really can’t afford it is a great way to realise that dream to manifest good coming my way and hopefully in time go from donating a few dollars a month to donating a few thousand a month.

I will choose a charity that speaks to me at the time to focus on each month and donate 10% off all sales for that month to the charity of choice. the more sales the more I can donate and the more healing and inspiring power of nature I will be sharing with the world so it’s a total win for everyone.

For the Month of April

I have chosen a special charity which has a bit of a twist to it.

My wonderful friend Penny Van Beek is doing an amazing thing by already raising money for a charity.

The charity is MS .. Multiple Sclerosis.

Penny is participating in the …

This is a big feat to accomplish for a athlete let alone a Mum of three kids who has to juggle everyday life with fundraising and training.

Penny is a Married Mum of three beautiful children living in Armadale, Western Australia and has the added challenge of having a sight disability but still she is throwing herself into the challenge of Stepping up over 1000 steps to reach the top and raise money for MS.

How to change your outlook when your standing still

Today’s oracle card was

Mists of Change

 

033 logo on

 

Description of sunlit oracle card :

your sunlit memory today is asking  you to consider the MIST OF CHANGE each day the sun rises and sets but each day is unique with time comes change it is up to you if it is to be a big change or small  you will never know the beauty of your life if you don’t get out there and live it from every different angle and along other avenues you can’t get beautiful dappled light in your life unless you surrender to a new change of view.  Time to find something new in your life and pursue it.

 

This card is telling us that no matter where we are in life there is always room to move and change.

You can always change you view even when your stuck in the one place.

 

Try this little exercise …

Go stand out in your back yard or in a park in your local area.

Once your feet are stable in a spot don’t move them.

Now look around how many different angles can you see the view from.

Crouch down …. Look up … twist to see the view behind …

Do you see all the different views?

Are they not all beautiful but different in their own way even though you are standing in the same spot.

When you feel like you are stuck and not moving in your life there is always a way to see a different view.

You don’t have to move mountains or across the country or change jobs to change the way you look at life and the joy and excitement you get out of life.

The other amazing thing is if you took that exercise and got the whole family to do it or a group of friends and got them all to write down or tell everyone what views they saw everyone would have different answers because everyone is unique and sees the world from their own view to start with.

So what way are you viewing the world?

Is there room for some change in your view?

Do you catch yourself thinking the negative about everything you see and hear?

When you see a beautiful beach scene do you think “paradise” or do you think “hot sandy and sharks” ?

It’s all in your attitude to your view and it is so easy to change that view.

The first step is to be aware of how your internal voice is talking to you.

Is it being a good positive influence on your life or is it always negative.

This can change your life just by catching yourself and saying something positive about every situation .

The second step is to actually physically change your view the sun will follow you wherever you go and it will still be the same sun but it will give you a different light in a different spot just like in today’s oracle card that dappled light was only possible by trial and error and moving my view to the right spot to get that light right.

You don’t have to move far or make major changes to have a BIG change in your life.

Try it today … would love to know about your experiences and what you saw when you tried the exercise.
