A Short Path to Change by Jenny Mannion ~ Author Interview and Review

Book – A Short Path to Change: 30 Ways to Transform Your Life

“Change is possible and does not have to be difficult.” ~ Jenny Mannion

I’m an advocate for Positive change. Always have been. I know its never easy to change our negative ways, but we can DO it if we are committed to our inner peace and happiness.

Change always seems daunting to the human mind. We are creatures of comfortable habit and refuse to change our ways simply because we think its difficult. But Jenny’s book kicks all those difficult ways to change out the window and gives you simple, clear, wise and doable ways to create positive change within you. Jenny’s journey is inspiring and learning from her life’s work has been a blessing for me. I recommend this book to everyone who really really wants to create positive change within themselves and add happiness to their life. A must read!

And do I have a treat for you- Below is an interview with the gorgeous and very inspiring Jenny Mannion about her amazing book. Enjoy darlings! Continue reading

While flying to Africa, he lovingly assists a fellow passenger whose brain is about to explode due to the impact of the high altitude pressure on her medical condition.  Hector directs the pilot to fly at a lower elevation, relieves her pain by applying a cold compress to her head, and listens to her story.

When Hector questions the effectiveness of his help, she says, “Listening is loving.” Continue reading

3 Simple Steps to Overcoming Your Unnecessary Wants

“Stop chasing what your mind wants and you’ll get what your soul needs.”

Just Last Night, my little daughter kept pulling me to the fridge to ask me for Ice cream. Now there is nothing wrong with ice cream is there??But at 11p.m. (well past bedtime) on a heavily rainy and cold day it’s potentially disastrous. Now we grown ups know that don’t we? But for a child its still the best thing in the world and not getting what she wanted makes her cranky and irritable. I try hard to distract her attention from it but all in vain. I actually had to drag her to bed…and even then she kept at it…she couldn’t stop crying and saying ice cream ice-cream…finally after much ado she did fall asleep. What she needed was to go to sleep, but what she wanted was ice cream! Continue reading

When I drew the Kaun Yin card for compassion this morning and read the words:

“Release Judgements About Yourself and Others, Focus on the love and light that is within everyone”
