Finding Your Tigger Moment

Sometimes life gets a bit too much to handle. That is when we need to stop what we are doing or thinking about and just take time to just be. Life at present is in the fast lane for everyone on the planet. Why do we do this to ourselves and try to impose it on others too. The root of all of this comes down to money, materialism and power. These things don't do anyone any good. We are all slowly starting to realize that.

Having said that just look at the economy, it will come to a screaming halt and when it does, what are we all going to do? First thing is take a deep breath. Next have a look at all those people, world wide that lived through 2 world wars and the great depression. They survived didn't they. So will we.

I always joke with my friends about finding"Your Tigger moment" or letting the Tigger in you out to play. What I am actually saying is, relax.The world isn't going to stop if you don't  do something at a set time, or if you miss a call on your phone. It isn't going to make the slightest difference if you decide to change the daily routine, that you have been in for the past 20 years. But it will make life better for you, the individual.

Just take time out for yourself from time to time and de-stress. Think of the things in your life that you are thankful for. Being thankful and mindful are very important things to be practicing right now. These thoughts actually lift the vibrations not just of yourself but, they have a flow on effect for the planet as a whole. Energy is what makes every living thing including the whole Universe work. We are all part of it. You can create positive energy or negative energy all by your thoughts.

As they say you are what you think you are, you are creating your world by the thoughts that you hold.Thought manifests into reality remember? So getting back to Tigger, we must train ourselves to think happy thoughts, uplifting thoughts, that is the way to improve our lives. Believe it of not happiness is contagious.

There is no point in beating ourselves up when things don't go the way we want them to. We do have choices in life. They might be small at times, but we still have them. It is hard work being happy at times but it is well worth the effort. Why on Earth would you choose to think negative thoughts and upset yourself, when you can just as easily think happy thoughts.

Do things that bring you happiness, spend time with those that you love. Avoid TV shows and movies that make you angry. Read more novels that are uplifting, old classic novels are great. I have a wide range of them From Sir Walter Scott , Jane Austen, Charles Dickens and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to name a few. I love reading all sorts of books. History is a big favorite with me as well as gardening.
I love my gardening to de-stress. Pure bliss just touching base with nature.

What ever makes you happy is all that matters. Just follow your heart to find that happiness. Meditation also helps you find that  feeling of happiness. It must not be underestimated either. This is the power of the Human mind. We only know a fraction of what it can do. But you can really open up when you get into the swing of meditation and do it often. You will get a better nights sleep, feel better about yourself. And you will learn about your true self. Meditation is not just one of those yoga things to to quit smoking. It is a powerful tool to connect with your higher self, your spirit guides, the Universe and so much more.The trouble is many people do not make the attempt to get in to the process of proper meditation.

But as I said, at the end of the day, follow your heart and find what makes you happy. Focus on that as often as you need to. Eventually you will do it automatically. It is OK to be silly and clown around. Who says that you must be serious all the time? There are no rules in life other than what we impose on ourselves or what we wrongly impose on others. Be silly when you feel like it. Laugh often and share you laughter. That is a gift remember. We also need to show others the way too.

Part of our mental health should include laughter, after all it is the best medicine. Even adult animals play. Have you ever watched your pets at play? A horse rolling on it's back and then getting up to run. We are meant to have time to have fun otherwise we would crack up. Think about all those people on anti-depressants at this point in time. Why do you think that is? Never in the history of the Human race have we pushed ourselves to destruction like we are now. We don't have to live like this. We have the choice. So as I say find your Tigger moment, and enjoy life.
