HOW TO INCREASE SELF AWARENESS

JOJO takes you all the way to an Amazon Rainforest to share some Soundbytes for your SOUL SAS…… Self Awareness System. We have been so long in lockdown so come with us on a journey to a cleansing rainforest. Please note this was filmed prior to lockdown but I just felt you needed this today to embrace a brave new world. Please excuse my rather dishevelled appearance but I HAD been living out of a rucksack for 3 weeks, and after all this video is ALL about what is going on inside and not the outside my friends. x

JOJOS STYLIST TIP: THIS IS ALL ABOUT BEING A COMPLETE PERSON ON YOUR OWN NEVER RELY ON SOMEONE ELSE FOR YOUR OWN HAPPINESS PUT YOURSELF IN THE DRIVING SEAT !

MIDWEEK MANTRA

THE ONLY THING I WANT YOU TO CATCH IS MY WEEKLY MANTRA TO DOSE YOU UP WITH GOODNESS AND OFFER YOU FULL PROTECTION FROM THE NEGATIVES AND STRESS OF DAILY LIFE. JOIN US AND MANY OTHERS EACH WEEK FOR THOUGHTS, TASKS AND LOTS OF SHINY POSITIVITY.

If This Does Not Make You Happy…………

HAPPINESS IS YOUR ETERNAL PARTNER

IT MAY FEEL LIKE HAPPINESS HAS DESERTED YOU OVER THE LAST VERY TOUGH YEAR. BUT ONE THING WE HAVE ALL HAD IN COMMON IS SPENDING MORE TIME WITH OURSELVES AND PRESSED THE PAUSE BUTTON.

DO YOU FEEL TRAPPED AND SUFFOCATED BY YOUR PARTNER ? OR ARE YOU A COMMITMENT PHOBE WHO AVOIDS RELATIONSHIPS ?

NOW IS THE TIME TO HEAL. IMAGINE YOURSELF SURROUNDED EVERY DAY BY A DEPENDABLE, COMFORTING SOURCE. ALL THE SUPPORT AND SPACE YOU REQUIRE YET IS ALWAYS THERE FOR YOU MEETING YOUR NEEDS….NO STRINGS ATTACHED. THIS IS WHAT HAPPINESS OFFERS YOU AND MORE ……… THE ONLY REQUIREMENT IS THAT YOU ARE OPEN TO RECEIVING IT.

ESTABLISH A NEW RELATIONSHIP…….WITH HAPPINESS.

HAPPINESS IS AVAILABLE 24/7 , IF YOU CANNOT FIND IT OR YOU FEEL THAT IT HAS TEMPORARILY DESERTED YOU IT MAYBE THAT YOUR AWARENESS OF HAPPINESS HAS TEMPORARILY DISAPPEARED.

BY RECOGNISING HAPPINESS AS YOUR ETERNAL PARTNER YOU CAN BECOME MORE ATTUNED TO IT EACH DAY. IT IS ALWAYS THERE JUST WELCOME IT IN.

HAPPINESS PROJECT

SO THIS WEEK MY POSITIVE POSSE I WANT TO SET A CHALLENGE AND GET YOU TO PLAY A GAME. I THINK WE HAVE FORGOTTEN HOW GOOD HAPPINESS FEELS. THERE HAS BEEN SO MUCH DOOM AND GLOOM AROUND DURING 2020. EVERYONE YOU MEET SEEM TO BE FULL OF NEGATIVITY WHICH OF COURSE YOU ABSORB ON A DAILY BASIS.

BUT NOW WE HAVE THE LOCKDOWN PATHWAY MAPPED OUT START TO LOOK FORWARD TO THE LIGHT. SO I NEED YOUR HELP TO SPREAD A NEW VIRUS ….THE HAPPINESS VIRUS. EVEN MORE CONTAGIOUS THAN CORONAVIRUS. SO LETS START TODAY…..

TASK

WITH EACH OF THE NEXT 5 PEOPLE YOU TALK TO, SHARE A DIFFERENT PIECE OF GOOD NEWS WITH EACH OF THEM. SO ONE PERSON EQUALS ONE PIECE OF HAPPINESS.

SO NOT ONLY DOES THIS IMPACT ON HOW YOU FEEL BUT LIGHTENS THE LOAD AND PUTS A SMILE ON THE FACE OF OTHER PEOPLE. THE PIECE OF GOOD NEWS MAY NOT BE PERSONAL TO YOU BUT SOMETHING YOU HAVE HEARD.

IT IS SO COMMON TO PLAY LIFE DOWN RATHER THAN CELEBRATE IT.

SO IF YOU ARE READING THIS TELL OTHER PEOPLE TO DO THE SAME… LET US LIFT THE SPIRITS OF THE NATION, THE WORLD. MAKE A NOTE OF WHAT HAPPENS AS YOU EMBARK ON THE PROJECT. SEND ME A MESSAGE ON THIS BLOG.

HAPPINESS IS CONTAGIOUS…CATCH IT.

MIDWEEK MANTRA

UPLIFTING MESSAGES AND POSITIVE LESSONS TO GET YOU THROUGH THE WEEK.

THIS WEEK I WANTED TO REACH OUT TO YOU THROUGH ALL THE DIVISION THAT IS HAPPENING ON THE WORLD POLITICAL STAGE. POLITICS HAS ALWAYS DIVIDED OPINION OF COURSE . BUT WE SEEM TO BE GOING THROUGH A PERIOD OF EXTREMES AND UNCERTAINTY . THE POLITICIANS GIVE US THE POWER TO VOTE THEN LEAVE US POWERLESS IN THEIR INITIATION.

ITS A POWERFUL TIME TO LIVE IN, BOTH THE BEST AND WORST IN HISTORY. THERE IS SO MUCH PAIN AND MISERY, YET NEVER CERTAINLY IN MY LIFETIME HAVE I SEEN SO MANY PEOPLE TAKING CONTROL OF THEIR PERSONAL CIRCUMSTANCES. RE EVALUATING AND TRANSFORMING THEIR LIVES AND AWARENESS OF SELF.

SO HARNESS YOUR PERSONAL POWER. STUDY MORE, CHANGE MORE, SHARE MORE AND BE THERE FOR OTHERS MORE. WE ALL NEED EACH OTHER. ULTIMATELY ALL WANT THE SAME THINGS. THATS WHAT THIS TIME IS ALL ABOUT. LEARNING, TALKING, GROWING.

SO THIS WEEK THINK ABOUT THE THINGS YOU WANT TO LEARN FOR SELF IMPROVEMENT AND MAKE A START !

CHANGE IS USUALLY A GOOD THING A CHANCE TO MAKE A FRESH START TO DO THINGS IN A BETTER WAY MOVING FORWARD AND TO LEARN PAST LESSONS.

JOJOS STYLELIST TIP: CHANGE CAN BE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR GROWTH AND TO MAKE MORE INFORMED CHOICES. EMBRACE WHAT IS TO COME.

A FREE GIFT TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE

MY GIFT TO YOU THIS WEEK WILL HAVE A PROFOUND EFFECT ON YOUR BEING.

FIND A QUIET PLACE (TOTAL SILENCE) AND EITHER LIE ON YOUR YOGA MAT WITH A PILLOW UNDER YOUR HEAD OR USE YOUR BED . SITTING CROSS LEGGED IS FINE BUT IT IS IMPORTANT TO BE COMFORTABLE. CLOSE YOUR EYES OR USE AN EYE MASK. PLACE ONE HAND ON YOUR HEART AND THE OTHER ONE ON YOUR TUMMY. START TO CONNECT WITH YOUR BREATHING. BREATHING SLOWLY IN THROUGH YOUR NOSE AND OUT THROUGH YOUR NOSE IN DEEP LONG SLOW BREATHS. I LIKE TO CALL THIS OCEAN BREATHING THINK OF YOUR BREATH AS THE WAVES GOING IN AND OUT WITH THROAT BREATHING ON THE EXHALE.

CONCENTRATING ON YOUR HEART SPACE WITH YOUR BREATH MASSAGING THE WHOLE AREA . PEEL BACK YOUR PHYSICAL LAYER , THEN YOUR EMOTIONAL LAYER AND THERE YOU HAVE THE ESSENCE OF YOU. WHO YOU ARE. NOTICE HOW YOU ARE FEELING. HOW DO YOU WANT TO FEEL ? YOU ARE THE LEADER OF YOUR OWN INTERNAL COMMUNITY. YOU ARE ALONE WITH YOUR TRUE SELF.

DO YOU WANT TO FEEL HAPPY, CALM AND AT PEACE…….. OR ANGRY, HATEFUL AND NEGATIVE ? TAKE THE FEELING TO EVERY PART OF YOUR BODY, TUNE UP YOUR ORCHESTRA. FOCUS ON YOUR CHOSEN MANTRA FOR AT LEAST 5 MINUTES.

BRING YOURSELF BACK TO REALITY BY GENTLY TOUCHING YOUR THUMB TO EACH FINGER AND WRIGGLING YOUR TOES.

AS YOU OPEN YOUR EYES LIE STILL AND REFLECT ON YOUR NEW ENERGISED BODY AND MIND RENEWED AND FULL OF LIGHT. YOU JUST GOT TO KNOW YOUR INNER SELF A LITTLE BETTER.

JOJOS STYLELIST TIP: EVERY TIME I DO THIS EXERCISE I FEEL IT IS A DEEPLY PROFOUND 10 MINUTES . DEVELOP A BEAUTIFUL FRIENDSHIP WITH YOURSELF TODAY IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE AND YOUR THINKING. YOU DESERVE THIS.

PEACE AND LOVE

MENTAL HEALTH WORKOUT

MANY OF US CONCENTRATE ON WORKING OUT THE BODY BUT IT IS JUST AS IMPORTANT TO EXERCISE THE MIND TO KEEP IT STRONG AND HEALTHY. SO THIS WEEK I WANT YOU TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW. THINK ABOUT A SKILL OR KNOWLEDGE YOU WOULD LIKE TO ACQUIRE. WE ARE ALL AWAITING OUR JABS IN THE ARM, THINK OF THIS AS A JAB FOR YOUR MIND!!! IN MY DAILY TIMETABLE I ALLOW ONE HOUR EVERY DAY FOR MY MENTAL WORKOUT. SOME DAYS THIS MAY JUST BE DOING A CROSSWORD IN MY CROSSWORD BOOK BUT AS I LOVE DISCOVERY AND SELF IMPROVEMENT THE CURRENT MENTAL CHALLENGES I HAVE GOING ON ARE…………..

  • PIANO LESSONS. I HAVE GONE FROM BEGINNER TO ADVANCED DURING ‘ LOCKDOWN2020’ WITH THE HELP FROM AN APP “SIMPLY PIANO” . I CAN DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS APP IT IS ADDICTIVE AND REALLY HAS RE ESTABLISHED MY LOVE FOR PIANO IT IS MY FAVOURITE HOUR OF THE DAY. SO LEARN AN INSTRUMENT, STUDIES HAVE SHOWN IT HAS A HUGE VALUE ON MENTAL CAPACITY.
  • PHOTOGRAPHIC COURSE. THERE ARE MANY FREE COURSES ON LINE. I AM STUDYING WITH EOS ONLINE. THIS ALSO ENCOURAGES ME TO GET OUT IN THE FRESH AIR WALKING WITH MY CAMERA TO PUT WHAT I HAVE LEARNED INTO PRACTICE.
  • A NEW LANGUAGE. PERFECT YOUR SCHOOLGIRL FRENCH OR LEARN MANDARIN. PIMSLEUR.COM ARE CURRENTLY OFFERING THE FIRST LESSON FREE. WITH THIS METHOD YOU CAN CONVERSE AT INTERMEDIATE LEVEL IN 30 DAYS WITH 30 MINS A DAY PRACTISE. NO WRITING. JUST LISTENING AND SPEAKING .
  • GOOD OLD FASHIONED BOOKS. I HAVE A WINE BOOK AND AN ART BOOK WHICH IS BASED ON A WALK AROUND A GALLERY (THE ART MUSEUM PUBLISHED BY PHAIDON). PERFECT FOR CURLING UP IN FRONT OF THE FIRE WITH A GLASS OF WINE AS YOU EMBARK ON YOUR TOUR.

THIS IS THE PERFECT TIME TO EXPLORE AND DISCOVER, MAKE THE MOST OF IT ! START A WORKOUT PROGRAM FOR YOUR MIND TODAY ONE THAT YOU WILL ENJOY AND LOOK FORWARD TO ! MAKE TIME. SELF CARE IS NOT SELFISH……..

JOJOS STYLELIST TIP:IT IS IMPORTANT FOR MENTAL HEALTH TO ACHIEVE AND MOVE FORWARDS AT THE MOMENT IT MAY FEEL LIKE YOU CANNOT DO THIS IN YOUR WORKING LIFE SO START WITH SOME NEW SKILLS. THIS WILL MOTIVATE AND REWARD THE MIND.

HEY TEAM HOW ARE YOU ALL THIS WEEK ? CHECKING IN ? HOPE YOU ARE ALL STILL WITH US AND FEELING UPLIFTED AND EXCITED ABOUT THE DAY AHEAD FULL OF POSSIBILITIES AND OPPORTUNITIES……..IT IS UP TO YOU. BUT LET ME BE YOUR GUIDE XXXXX

YOUR WEEKLY SUPPORT GROUP OF MANTRAS, TASKS AND POSITIVE THINKING TO GET YOU THROUGH THE REST OF THE WEEK ON A PINK HEAVENLY CLOUD.

white clouds and blue sky

DISCOVER YOUR INNER LIGHT

WHAT FEELS BETTER LIGHTNESS OR DARKNESS ? SUNSHINE OR CLOUD ? WEDDINGS OR FUNERALS ? LAUGHTER OR SORROW ?

WE ALL NEED TO LET MORE LIGHT INTO OUR LIVES. WE ALL WILL EXPERIENCE PERIODS OF DARKNESS IN OUR LIVES BUT IT IS IMPORTANT TO FIGHT BACK TO DELIVER MORE LIGHT TO OUR MINDS AND BODIES. LET US NOT JUST TRY TO ACHIEVE BALANCE BUT LET THE LIGHT ALWAYS TIP THE SCALES TOWARDS JOY AND BEAUTY. THIS REQUIRES EFFORT. TRULY HAPPY PEOPLE WORK AT IT.

THESE TIMES ARE SO DIFFICULT BUT ALSO AFFORD US SOME TIME TO REALLY WORK ON UPPING OUR HAPPINESS QUOTA. CREATING A REGIME TO PRACTISE LONG AFTER THE VIRUS HAS BEEN CONQUERED.

SO HOW DO WE BRING AS MUCH LIGHT IN AS POSSIBLE DURING LOCKDOWN. HERE ARE A FEW SIMPLE TIPS YOU CAN DO DAILY.

  • WE ARE OBVIOUSLY SPENDING MORE TIME INDOORS. GET OUTSIDE AT LEAST ONCE A DAY TO SOAK UP NATURAL LIGHT (VITAMIN D) AND FRESH AIR. GO FOR A BRISK WALK IN A BEAUTIFUL PLACE. LOCALLY (ABIDE BY THE CURRENT RULES). ALL OF US NEVER FEEL LIKE EXERCISING BUT PUSH YOURSELF WHEN YOU GET HOME YOU WILL BE VERY GLAD YOU DID. NO ONE EVER REGRETS EXERCISE.
  • IF YOU REALLY ARE ANXIOUS ABOUT GOING ANYWHERE THEN JUST GO INTO YOUR GARDEN OR SPACE BY YOUR HOME AND ROOT YOURSELF TO THE EARTH STRETCH YOUR HANDS UP TO THE SKY AND LET THE LIGHT FILL YOUR BODY.
  • BREATHE. EVEN INDOORS YOU CAN PRACTISE WITH THE BREATH. BREATHE IN THE LIGHT THROUGH YOUR BODY AND EXPEL THE DARK STALE AIR. REPEAT SEVERAL TIMES WITH LONG SLOW BREATHS. AS YOU EHALE BREATHE OUT EVERY LAST DROP OF STALE AIR. READ MY ARTICLE ON THIS BLOG ABOUT THE HAPPY BUDDHA MEDITATION. A MEDITATION THAT TAKES 5 MINUTES EVERY MORNING FILLING YOUR BODY WITH LIGHT AND ENSURES A CALM PEACEFUL MOOD FOR THE ENTIRE DAY !
  • LONGER MEDITATION IS SO IMPORTANT. BUT RIGHT NOW AS YOU MEDITATE TAKE YOURSELF ON HOLIDAY AND FEEL THE HEAT ON YOUR BODY AS YOU BATHE IN THE SUNLIGHT. WE ARE ALL MISSING OUR HOLIDAYS RIGHT NOW. SO WHO WOULDNT WANT TO TAKE THEMSELVES AWAY FOR 30 MINS EVERY DAY.
  • VITAMIN D MOUTH SPRAY. OUR BODIES CREATE VITAMIN D FROM THE SUNLIGHT. BUT AS WE HAVE BEEN INDOORS FOR MOST OF THE YEAR MANY OF US WILL BE DEFICIENT. MOUTH SPRAYS ARE NOW SEEN AS A FAR MORE EFFECTIVE WAY OF GETTING VITAMINS INTO YOUR BODY AS IT DOES NOT HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM. THE MOUTH HAS LARGER CAPILLARIES PARTICULARLY THE BACK OF THE TONGUE FOR FASTER AND MORE EFFECTIVE ABSORPTION. VIT D FOODS INCLUDE EGG YOLKS, OILY FISH AND RED MEAT.
  • EAT GREEN. MOST GREEN PLANT BASED FOODS CONTAIN CHLOROPHYLL THAT ABSORBS THE SUNSHINE. SO I LIKE TO THINK I AM EATING THE SUNSHINE.
  • WEAR SOMETHING BRIGHT AND SUNNY. VISUALS CAN LIGHT US UP TOO. WEAR SOME YELLOWS, ORANGE AND TURQUOISE. WILL NOT ONLY UPLIFT YOU BUT UPLIFT THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU.
  • SURROUND YOURSELF WITH PEOPLE ( IN YOUR BUBBLE OF COURSE) THAT ARE SUNNY AND POSITIVE. TOXIC PEOPLE WILL DRAIN YOUR LIGHT. EVEN ON ZOOM CALLS A VIBRANT FRIEND CAN LIGHT YO UP.

JOJOS STYLELIST TIP: SORRY THE MANTRA WAS LONGER THIS WEEK BUT THERE ARE ENDLESS WAYS TO FILL YOU WITH LIGHT. CHOOSE A FEW….OR ALL TO FLOOD YOUR OWN BODY AND MIND BUT DO THEM EVERY DAY !!!

MWAH MWAH
