Mahatma Gandhi

Which is odd because the act of eating is probably one of the single most important things we do! Food keeps us nourished, it allows our bodies to keep going and our minds moving. A good meal can nourish the mind and soul as well as the body.

I think we all get too caught up in thinking our life purpose is connected to a specific profession. I spent a long time trying to work out what sort of job my life purpose was but that never got me anywhere. The truth is a job is not your life purpose, it’s merely a vehicle of action through which you can channel your life purpose (if you so choose). Your life purpose is not something that you do, it’s something that you are.

Affirmations are a powerful tool to unpick negative thought patterns. I think almost everyone has some sort of negative association with money and deserving abundance. I like to use affirmations to restructure my thought patterns into more useful, positive ones. Even on the most basic level, affirmations will help you to get into a better frame of mind.

A few years ago, I remember watching a TV programme about luck. They were trying to find out what made some people seemingly ‘luckier’ than others. Were they blessed by Jupiter? Rather, the TV programme showed a few experiments they did to explore this concept. They found  something interesting. The people who considered themselves ‘lucky’ were just more open to opportunities. In contrast to those participants who considered themselves ‘unlucky’ were less open to opportunities.
