Here are a few thoughts to cogitate on. Some are based on my personal experience, others I came across and were very meaningful concepts for me at the time:

Speak your affirmations out loud. It’s much more powerful than thinking them. Better still, when no-one’s home run around shouting them at the top of your voice!

Make your affirmations present tense. Then it sounds like you already have, or are, the things you are affirming. For example, “I am healed”, “I am abundant”, “I have all the support I need”, “I am loved.” Hold onto the feeling, embellish it, fantasise about it, make it real in your imagination and your emotions in order to manifest it in your reality.

Express gratitude every time something works out. It’s a way of asking the ‘invisible helping hand’ to guide you, through your instinct, towards more great outcomes.

Strong expectation is a very powerful tool, so put it to good use. Project positive expectations to bring the things you want into your life. If negative thoughts creep in, replace them with positive ones, or distract yourself with something completely different.

Talk to the cells of your body. They have intelligence and respond to your thoughts so make sure you give them positive instructions! For instance, to heal yourself, to be energised, to be rejuvinated in the time you have available sleep, to youth (instead of the default which is to age).

Consciousness is king! Notice how often you think negatively. Replace negative thoughts with positive ones and refrain from making judgments. This is a big step towards bringing more peace and balance in your life.

Spiritual guidance is synchronistic. Watch out for ‘co-incidences’ and celebrate them when they occur.

Compassion is the key to evolution – for yourself, for others and humanity.

Self-worth….once you have this, your life truly begins.

You are not alone! You don’t have to be struggling with a situation to ask for ‘divine intervention’. But you do have to ask. Then be patient, stay balanced and wait for intuition and synchronicity to guide you to a solution. Timing is key. Don’t shoot yourself in the foot by getting impatient (this is a form of negativity). Things may well happen like a row of dominoes when everything is lined up.

You don’t know what you don’t know! Stay open to solutions in your life which are out of your experience and beyond your imagination.

Being true to ourselves in private or with a select few is not enough. Find the courage to show the world who you really are. Then you will inspire others to do the same and create a more authentic world.

How great is it to be able to be cross the boundaries of expected behaviour and use both male and female energy to do whatever needs to be done, whether it’s considered male or female activity. That’s not to say you can be the personification of your sex when you want to. Have your cake and eat it!

Time efficiency is an important feature in my life and I apply it to my personal training as well. I tell my body (out loud) that ‘we’ (my body and I) will get double / triple / quadruple the  benefit from the session. I apply the same principle to my horse’s fitness training!

I aim for a ‘state of grace’ with my riding and my personal training. For me, this means being at one with my horse, my body, the terrain, the elements and the divine and losing awareness of the boundaries between me and everything else. I am addicted to the moments of poetry which result. It’s a form of meditation.
