Operation Motivation: Focus and Live in your Moments

The Matrix of Manifestation: Focus
“Follow your deepest dream, the one you had as a kid... but stay focused.” ― Donal Logue
Our meditation today deals with the second element of the matrix of manifestation: our focus of attention. Just as focused light through a magnifying glass becomes more concentrated and powerful, the light of our consciousness also becomes more powerful when our attention is focused. This concentrated awareness awakens the dormant intelligence within our intention. It is like the warmth that helps the seed of desire sprout.
Today’s meditation will show us that the mind can experience deep focus easily, without strain or effort. When the mind is quiet, deep focus comes effortlessly and naturally. Unbounded awareness and sharp focus not only coexist, but they are mutually supportive, and together they form two of the three elements of awareness in the matrix of manifestation. 
The above read is from one of the meditations I have done in the past.  I'm glad that I keep them because it is always comforting to be able to go back and read words that helps me to think and re-focus on my life in any given moment.  I'm happy to say that I am working again.  It has been quite an experience lately.  I like the instructions at the beginning, in the quote you are told to follow your dreams, the one you had as a kid.  Then you are reminded to "stay focused".  Staying focused is one of the hardest thing for us humans to do.  We are so distracted by everything around us.  Reading further, we learn that when we focus, our minds will easily become more powerful.  Then we become even more aware.

The Headaches of Publishing

I'm at that stage again when my electronics are messing up.  I've posted a few new articles to this blog and they haven't shown up.  Although by what my phone says, they have been published?! I'm on a limited time and it gets frustrating when this happens.  It seems as if I'm hardly spending time with you my dear readers.

Curvy Looks: The Sock Bun

I have never tried the sock bun whenever I need to style my hair in a bun. I usually just do a pony twisted bun, the natural way (see photo below).

The hair bun is a look I like and have even tried it the way JLO wears it! 

Just recently I did a mid high bun, loosely the way that is attractive for my face. If I do it too far back or too tight without creating a certain look it will be a hair-fail for me.

Photo Journal: Telling My Story with Pictures

It has been a busy time, job hunting, meeting with new prospects, and trying to "keep it moving" as I always tell you to do dear readers.
Here are some of the things I have been up to. And that is just the real-life stuff. Just wait until I share what I have been up to on-line!

Happy Labor Day

It's Labor Day here in the United States.  It is a public holiday, a day off work for some. While many people will be having a cook out also known as a Barbecue (barbeque) or (BBQ), some will be headed to the beach (I wanna go!), meeting up with family and friends, with the intentions of relaxing, hanging loose, and just making fun memories.

But what my dear readers is the real reason for this holiday?  Why do we celebrate it at all?  In fact, even in my birth country, Jamaica, we celebrate Labour (spelt that way) Day as well.  Hmm....for now I  will tell you the reasons for the one here in the US and I'm sure that will be the reason why anyone celebrates this type of holiday.

Fitness Wednesdays: How NOT to Go "Mental"

“We don’t wait for the future to come to us. We give birth to the future.” 
― Alain Yaovi M. Dagba

You often hear me say how much "I love" something.  That's because when I do really like something, I LOVE it!  I do when that something appeals to my senses. I do when it makes me think and reflect, and especially when it expresses how I am feeling in a given moment.

The quote above is by Alain Yaovi M. Dagba, Writer, Spritual Leader, Author, et al.  I was introduced to his words from one of the past meditation sessions I participated in.   His quote  resonates with me at this time in my life because it says exactly what I needed to hear.

I've written about mental health in the past on Fitness Wednesdays and even in my Operation Motivation series; sharing how important it is for us to take care of not just our body, but our mind too.  When I started this new year, 2015, my mantra was #GoBold2015.  I did what I've always done and created a Vision Board for the new year, with the intentions of following up with my plans for the future and what I had in mind for 2015.

Those helping hands - Is that Person in it for the Money?

I think it is great to read and learn from others. Especially if the person you are learning from is an individual who has walked the walk in life that lead them to much success.  There are also those people who may have not had the success they wanted, however they too have lived and learned life experiences that are teachable life moments.

Then there are those who are going through life moments; taking the walk which enlightens their awareness that becomes teachable moments that inspires us.  Yes, reading, listening and watching other folks can be very helpful for our self growth.
