You’re Worth the Effort 

When life feels like it’s hit rock bottom, the only way for us to go is back up. Don’t see it as a bad thing, think of all the good that can come also. Life is a game and we can play along randomly, hoping we are playing correctly. We can give up and hide away from it all and pretend it’s not happening, or we can take charge, reinvent ourselves and start living by our own rules. Life isn’t easy and it isn’t fair, but letting it grind us down is a sure way of losing touch with who we are and who we really could be. Mindful Attraction offers us the chance of getting the ball rolling in a journey of self-improvement, self-awareness and burning belief that anything is possible with the power of you. Seeing people improve or change their lives gives me the drive to carry on with what I first thought was just an idea, and by sharing this idea I have touched so many people – not only my friends and family and my class attendances, but people from all over the wold that follow my blog and social media. Sometimes it’s easy to forget why we started something, but it’s ok as long as you remember that you did start and that our journey will not always be steady. Learning along the way is the key to remembering. Never give up on yourself, you are worth the effort.

Imagine 

Imagine that you woke up tomorrow morning and you find out that everything you wish for had come true. You are Bruce Almighty. Imagine it, and consider – what would you do? Remember that everything you wish for has consequences, so if you wish for world peace it could cause an economic effect in many countries. The same goes for solving hunger. We would have to start off carefully with kid gloves; it’s a big responsibility to have the power of creation in the palm of your hands, but with this power you could have the life of your dreams. So how about for safety reasons we say that as a beginner we have to kind of earn the respect of the power, by showing it that we are prepared. The choices we make can be made with a clear and decisive mind, without prejudice and with an honest soul.Believing that you now have this power what do you do?How do you start? What do you wish for?

Interesting isn’t it, having that kind of opportunity laid in front of you? Every choice you now make has consequences – good and bad – that could affect the world around you. Would you be willing to make sacrifices, take responsibility, become a better you to hold this power? Would you take it seriously enough and give it the time it takes to learn how to use it with skill?
Well, imagine again that I tell you that you hold that power already…you, yes you. Hear me out, I’m being serious for once. I can’t think of a better way of explaining The Law of Attraction than how I just did. The life we lead is determined by the choices we make, this is a true fact whether we want to believe it or not and it works whether you believe in it or not. But by taking responsibility for our actions and choices we can shape a future of amazing possibilities. The proof is out there, I’m not going to rabbit on about it, I don’t need to – all you have to do is try it for yourself. Start off small and grow big – one thing at a time – and I promise I won’t say I told you so. You can stop imagining now, it’s time to start believing.

Does it take long

When we begin anything new we usually have the tendency to jump in head first and try and do as much as possible, wanting to see results straight away. Unfortunately, mindfulness is a process that takes time and has no quick fix or short cuts. We get the best results with mindfulness when we are mindful. Attention and experience are the only ways forward; being in a mindful state is a liberating experience and worth the time spent practising all aspects of it.
What we gain.

Sustainable attention 

Direct attention 

Opens us to new experiences 

Helps us accept 

Helps let go
Mindfulness has the ability – if given the opportunity – to give us a life under our terms and a life of choice. 

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and anything that’s worth doing is worth doing correctly: we only cheat ourselves by not doing so.

We Have to Believe 

Hi everyone, thanks so much for taking time out to visit Byw, hopefully it’s going to be a visit worth taking. Over the last few weeks I have been working on my talk and workshop and have neglected my blog a little, and I apologise for not being around but I’m back and full of excitement for the months to come. If somebody had told me 2 and a half years ago when I stared my journey that I would now be teaching and helping others with the skills I had acquired, I’d have thought they were mad, but here I am: a living testimony of what is possible with faith and self-belief. Life throws so much at us without mercy, and if we are unprepared it can make the strongest of character break. I’m not saying what I teach will change your life – only you can do that. Mindful-Attraction can however, give you the mindset to a more balanced, focused and happier life. Before we start anything we have to believe we are going to finish it or what’s the point of even starting? It’s common sense, right? So before we even start sitting down to attempt mindful-attraction, we have to believe we can do it, because you can do it; anyone can do it – that’s the beauty of it. The only thing you need do is believe, not just in what you are doing, but also in you. You are the most important part of mindful-attraction, without you believing in you then there is no point starting. I have always been fairly confident, I can’t deny that, but it’s always come hand in hand with a deep nagging doubt that has been far more influential in my life. Since starting mindful-attraction my confidence has grown, my fear and doubt haven’t gone – no, no, they are still there, but now I manage them rather than them managing me. I’m far from perfect – who is? – but what I am is a human being, just like you, and if I can do it so can you. All you need do to start is open your mind and believe: anything really is possible.

The Next Step 

Moving forward, taking the next step to fulfilling our goals can be a little overwhelming, if not down right scary, and its natural to feel this way – it’s all part of stepping into the unknown. It’s our defence system kicking in. If we feel able or competent in what we do then there shouldn’t be any reason why we can’t move forward and grow without any fuss or hassle – as long as we are always willing to keep learning along the way. Recently giving my first workshop and talk has given me a refreshed quest to share the skills and techniques that I have learned and found helpful and effective. For a first time giving a talk and basic workshop I was unsurprisingly nervous – and I think it showed slightly – but thankfully I was treated kindly by the friendly participants. It went much better than I expected but still needs work on presentation and structure. Understanding that improvement happens with practice and I am already planning my next few sessions in the next month or so, taking along the lessons I learned from the first; structure being the main lesson. I look forward to meeting you all sometime in the future at one of my talks and remember: each step we make and each move forward is making us stronger and more capable as long as we are willing to keep an open mind and keep learning.

Mindful Music

I love listening to music; all kinds from pop to classical, rock to opera- I have no prejudice, if it’s a good song or track then it’s on my playlist. Shuffle can be amusing or annoying depending on who you ask. Anyway, the reason I’m talking about music is because music has the ability to heal, the ability change our mood, the ability to motivate. Music can be – and is – a powerful tool for self-help when used mindfully. We all have a song that reminds us of a time, a place, a situation: they can make us sad as well as happy, emotional or ecstatic. Music can literally touch our soul. Mindful music isn’t just restricted to dolphins singing or pan pipes – we can use any music to be mindful, although hardcore death metal I haven’t quite mastered. It’s easier to start with a song you are familiar with, obviously something that’s an easy listen. Get your headphones on, plug in and sit back, and before you start make sure you are nice and comfortable. OK, ready? Take a few deep breaths, in through your nose and out through your mouth, keeping your breathing steady throughout the experience and it’s time to press play and begin. The real trick here isn’t actually listening to the song or track, but to actually feel it. This is why using headphones is helpful as it’s just you and the music; loose yourself in it – please give it a try. I use this method often, it’s one that can help if you are constantly in a busy environment. It helps you step away for a few minutes or so. So go on then, give it a try let and me know how you get on. Allow yourself to explore every aspect of the track. Give your full attention, give yourself permission to climb inside the track and dance along with the sound waves. The idea is to simply listen and feel it, to become fully entwined with the composition without any kind of judgment of the lyrics, genre, artist, instruments or language. Please enjoy.

Anything is Possible

Who wouldn’t want to be the best version of themselves?Who wouldn’t want to achieve greatness?Who wouldn’t want to be successful, or be remembered for making a difference to the world? I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t want these things, but it seems that all the above are not true for everyone. Some of us have no self-confidence to achieve anything close to our dreams and ambitions, and its stopping us being who we were born to be. We are not born this way; in fact we are all born with the potential to become amazing humans, fantastical individuals with the abilities to create anything our minds can conceive. So why don’t we? Lack of confidence, self-belief and direction – alongside fear -seem to be the main reasons we are not achieving our full potential, and here at Byw we believe that everyone deserves the chance to shine. We hear a lot of excuses about why people can’t achieve, and the majority of them are just that excuses: we tell ourselves we are not able or worthy of a happy successful life. We actually choose to live this way – we are afraid of stepping outside our comfort zone but that’s exactly what we have to do. I’m not going to go into why we do these things to ourselves right now, I’m more interested in how we change the habits and beliefs that hold us back. We truly have full control of us: you and me are far more capable than we are aware, nothing is down to chance or coincidence, it’s all choice – our choice. What if I was to tell you that life can be as easy or as hard as we chose it to be? What if I was to tell you that with a little bit of hard work and determination you could start living a life that you truly want and deserve? What if I was to tell you that you can determine your own happiness? Well that’s exactly what I am saying – you can have these things and more, and all you have to do is one simple thing: believe. Believe in you. Everyone deserves happiness and fulfilment and Byw’s ambition is to help people achieve just that, whilst together making the world a better place for us all. Improvement together.
