How the 3 M’s Can Help You Reach Your New Year’s Resolutions and Goals

resolutions

2017 has left many of us wanting more in our lives. From political to social unrest, we all want to have a more positive and compassionate 2018. According to Psychology Today, the number one New Year’s resolution this year is “be kind.” That’s something to be encouraged by.

We all need a little more kindness in the world. This goal will take just as much work to achieve as any of your other resolutions. Habits and mindsets don’t just happen overnight. You need to put in the work if you want to achieve your dreams and goals.

Fortunately, there are many methods and techniques that will help you find and stay on the path to success. By following the 3 M’s: Mantras, Meditation and Music the goal of a more positive 2018 will certainly be reached. Let’s get started!

Mantras

Words have an incredible amount of power over people. Just a few words can either motivate someone or tear them down, even holding sway over your body’s healing processes. The words you say and hear are crucial to the achievement of your goals.

This is where mantras come in. A mantra is a phrase you repeat to yourself either silently or out loud. By saying these words several times each day, you remind yourself of your goals on a continual basis. It helps to put a written form of your mantra somewhere you regularly look at, such as on the wallpaper of your cell phone or your mirror.

When faced with a decision you have to make, your phrase will be right where you need. It will help you make the right choices to reach your dreams. The most important thing about your mantra is that it must ring true to you and what you’re trying to achieve. It won’t help you to mutter a phrase over and over again that does nothing to lift your soul.

So choose carefully and know that there’s the perfect mantra out there for you. It’s also useful to schedule this practice, even down to putting it on your calendar if you have a busy lifestyle, like one of a student. Keep in mind how many times you would like to say your mantra a day and at what time you will do it. Also, consider if you want to keep this practice for a set amount of days or if you want this practice to last your life.

Meditation

Meditation is a great practice on its own and in conjunction with saying your mantras. Meditating is not only beneficial for your physical and mental health, but also for accomplishing your goals. This practice trains your mind to focus on what you want to achieve and puts you in the right mindset to succeed. The first step is to relax your body so you’re able to focus on nothing else but your breath.

Concentration can escape you if you’re in a tense state. After a few minutes of focusing on your breathing, take the time to say your mantra out loud. By repeating your mantra, you will continue to calm down and prepare yourself for the next and most important step: Manifesting.

Manifesting is when you visualize your dreams and make them into reality. When you come to this part of your meditation practice, picture in your mind what it would look like when you accomplish your goal. Be as specific as you can be.

Even simple details, like the clothes you’ll wear and what you’ll smell, will be beneficial to you in realizing your dreams. By continually imagining success, you will grow more conscious of the opportunities and choices you can make that will lead you closer to your aspirations.

Music

Much like words, music can make us feel an array of emotions. It’s even used to improve mental health. Your favorite tunes can help you get into the zone and encourage you to chase your dreams. However, not all music is created equal. Some types of music increase productivity, while others don’t.

Although research has shown that people who listen to music while working are faster at getting their jobs done and are more creative in their thinking, there are genres of music that actually hinder mental processes. While classical music, nature sounds, and epic soundtracks are known to improve concentration and motivation, music with words has been proven to have the opposite effect.

Just how talking to people can distract you from completing a task at hand, music with lyrics can do much of the same thing. Instead of playing in the background, the words of a song can play the leading role and steal your attention away from what you’re trying to achieve. The simpler the music structure of a soundtrack is, the better.

Music with too many chords can be just as distracting as lyrics. Choice also seems to play a role in whether or not music helps or hinders your progress to your dream. When you’re the one choosing to listen to music, you will receive the benefits mentioned before. However, if you were not given the choice to listen, the songs you hear can impede you.

Conclusion

No matter what your resolutions are this year, a more positive 2018 is within your grasp. By repeating mantras, meditating and listening to music, your chances of completing your goals rises exponentially. So for this New Year, follow the three M’s to experience a marvelous 2018.

Positive Impact on Others

impact

Impact People and their lives.

Seeing someone you have helped in the past being upbeat and doing well is always a positive thing.  Knowing that you could be the one to touch their lives and be that ray of light that they needed is a special feeling.

Then one day you run into them again, on a break or just in the hall at work.  You see them and you start smiling and so do they.  In this instance, I smiled and he smiled and said…

“You must be my angel”

Of course, I had no idea what he meant or how to respond, but he proceeds to tell me that he is suicidal again.  I had a feeling that something was wrong when I saw him but just asked how he was doing.

This is a very heart breaking issue for anyone to experience, whether you are the one that is suicidal or the one they come to for help.  Was glad I was at the right place at the right time for him, but still it was a sad moment.

Put on my smile and patted his shoulder to let him know that everything was going to be alright and walked with him to the clinic.  Helped him check in and stayed with him to make sure he was comfortable while waiting.  I told him I would stay but he smiles and assures me he will be fine.

All of this to say, you never know how much you impact someone

You never know when that one special person will be a part of your life.  Just stop for a moment and think about how you react or will react in certain situations.  There will always be someone who needs that extra smile, that little extra bit of encouragement in life.

Often people ignore situations or one another.  Ignoring them by looking down and not smiling or listening to them.  You might be able to tell there is a problem going on but do not want to get involved.

Chose to care

For example, I could have just spoken to this man, smiled and walked on.  I CHOSE to take the extra step and listen. That because I picked up on the fact that something might be wrong.

When you see a co-worker or even a stranger looking sad or know they are having a bad day and you smile at them or just speak to them, they feel you caring.

Having an impact on someone means that you took the extra time to care.  No matter how small you think it is, I can promise you that it is noticed.

Take the time to get involved!

Just that one smile or conversation could be a life changing moment for them, even though it seems simple to you.

For example, the next time you see a homeless person in McDonalds or a gas station, someone you see each day on your way to work, just smile at them or tell them good morning.

It is really the simple things in life that stick with someone. It really does not take much to be nice or have an impact, sometimes we just need to be reminded. I truly hope that these words make at least one person stop to think.

Reflective Reality Reflections of the Inner Universe

Reflective Reality: Reflections of the Inner Universe

Reflective Reality: Reflections of the Inner Universe

There is a universe that resides inside of me, a sort if reflective reality, for the universe is a most radical reflection of me. For I am ever expanding like the sea, rooted and grounded like that an oak tree, all while transcendently resting in the ineffable infinity that is our galaxy.

Am I here, no am I really here? Simultaneously sensing that the beginning and the very end rests in this times sphere. Feeling as though my physical existence has vanished, most swiftly disappeared. Filled with a felicitous kind of fear, internally inquiring with my inner self whether I will make it out of here.

Senses overwhelmed as I; hear, smell, and see things ever so clear. For the universe, has never felt ever so near. As I am enveloped in the universe’s ever expanding love, I am emphatically embraced with a most heavenly hug. Interwoven with the galaxy, stars, and the moon above my spirit is overflowing with a bounty of the purest form of love.

For your divine destiny can be found in written in the celestial skies above, paved with eternal love. And so, the next time you find your minds eye gazing up at the sky, know that the universe is looking back at you, resting in the soul of you, you are looking back at the reflection that is you.

This connection to the constellations makes one realize that endless possibilities reside within you, an eternity of endless treasures shall forever await you.

Reflections of the Soul of me, Serenity

Rumi Quote

Reflections of the Soul of me, Serenity

Our ever-expanding universe has undoubtedly blessed me with the oh so glorious gift of pouring out the oh so positively peaceful poetry that has indelibly been written on each and every vessel of my beating heart. As I honor the universe, assuring to live out my life’s purpose too; uplift, inspire, and empower others by gracing them with my most rhythmic rhapsodies, allows for each soul to stop for a moment in time.  For there is profound power in being able to consciously connect, caressing another’s unconscious mind. I must admit, that through the wonderment of words, it invokes in me a feeling that is ineffably one of a kind.

In an effort to provide your dearly beloved soul a glimpse into the reflections  of my soul, In the words of Henry David Thoreau, this is my goal ” to live deeply and suck out the marrow of life” for this is what ignites a fire in my spirit, making me feel wondrously whole. The profoundly perfect stream of words spoken by Mr. Thoreau resonated with the effervescent essence that is me, so remarkably raptured the very soul of me wholeheartedly. It is as if for a moment in time, I was Mr. Thoreau and he was me. For living life deeply is what gives my life purpose. It so promisingly propels me towards my most divine destiny.

I am enamored and inspired by every astoundingly amazing aspect of this belovedly blessed life. From marveling in awe at the beautiful bounty of nature, keenly listening to the whispers of wise willow trees to gazing at the gorgeous glare of ever so brightly shinning stars.  Progressively Pontificating our very existence here on earth, forever inquisitive about why we are the way that we are. Finding solace in those solitary moments when I comforted in clarity by the ever-translucent fact that we are most radical reflections of our most glorious galaxy. Realizing that although our universe appears to be ever reaching, ever expanding, out of reach, and ever so far, we are cosmically connected and thus this kismet connection has an impact on the very reason that we are who we are.

In soaking in the vivaciously vibratory words enlisted above, you may sense that my writings are inspired by the very depths of life, inspired not only by that which our naked eye sees but also those intangibles that can’t be seen, but only felt, with the intention to find out what it means for you and me. It is my hearts hope that my spiritually enlightened writings on; life, depth of emotions, the power of love, and the interconnectedness of it all shall stimulate and invigorate the; mind, body, and soul like that of the most gracefully refreshing rainfall. Overall, I can only wish that it serves to inspire others to become increasingly more in tune with the love and light that resides in us all, propelling others to respond to every call that excites are wonder-filled spirits once and for all.

All in all, working towards the most marvelously miraculous mission for positively peaceful inspirations to behold each and every soul with overwhelming elation, so graciously taking flight, laying a most felicitous foundation across our nation. Transcending our universe’s collective consciousness straight towards the constellations. Cradling each heart in the purest form of serenity, and completely awe-inspiring adoration.

Sincerely,

Serenity
