Discovering Your Calling

This post is inspired by the calling work of Anurag Gupta and Bentinho Massaro. I will put helpful links to their work at the end of the post.

Have you ever wondered why you’re here?  What the core purpose or intention is for your incarnation into the life you’re living now?

Or, do you feel that you have something to share that may help or inspire others in some way?

Is there some area of expertise you have gained and can share to help others solve some issue?

Or, do you already know you’re here to create or express something that will benefit the whole?

So, what is meant by finding or connecting with your ‘calling’?

According to Anurag Gupta, it is something you create or express that doesn’t involve you.  In other words, your calling relates to something that is of benefit to others.

To discover your calling, ask yourself, ‘What is it that lights me up  when I see other people experiencing……what’?

Your calling may be linked to a passion or gift you have, e.g your art inspiring people or helping them connect with joy.

Or, it could be a quality that you can unveil in another, such as  confidence in people, i.e being an encourager of sorts.   Whatever your calling, you can find it by asking, ‘Where in my life did I really feel lit up as others were experiencing X’?

Another benefit to finding your calling is the realization of some positive aspect that you would like to see expressed in the world e.g compassion or unconditional love.

When you are aligned with your calling, and helping people to experience joy, freedom etc,  you are actualising more of that quality/frequency on the planet!

As each one of us tunes into our calling (those positive qualities or realizations we wish to inspire in others), we are naturally uplifted too.   Everyone wins!  And more joy vibrates around the planet.

You don’t ‘do’ your calling, you become the expression of it, for you are already it.

Know that just by being here and radiating your true self, you are already fulfilling your calling to some extent.  If you respect others and treat them with compassion, appreciation and love, you are already making a big difference.

So, no need to worry, if it is not yet clear what your calling is.  Simply continue radiating love and all will graciously unfold for you.

At some point, you will feel ‘service’ inspired and desire to create and share something that will benefit others.

Your first job is to create a truer expression of you!

Be who you truly are, beyond the mask of personality that you adopted to protect yourself.   Let go of the fear to be seen and become sincere/authentic.

Living your calling is about where you are coming from, not where you are getting to.   It is your authentic expression from the heart.

When you live from your heart, you inspire others to do the same.

We are all tired as a collective of being clones.  Playing it safe so as not to offend anyone has to be shelved.  It’s time to not give a monkey’s and start playing the part of your most true self.

Be fearless, bold, courageous. Shine!

Play your calling like a game!

This world is a stage, it helps to see it all as a game.  You can’t lose, even if you make mistakes or make a fool of yourself.

Forget worrying about how you look to others. Just start playing and having fun!  Explore, tranform, learn, adapt, refine as go along.  You don’t have to get it perfect.  There’s no such thing anyway.  There will always be something more to learn in this game of life.

Living your calling is being at the source of your life.

Your core intention or purpose is where it all happens.  You are an amazing Creator.  Creation is where the most fun is!  As you create a more true expression of you, you inspire others to do the same.

We can all show up for each other, as infinite expressions of the One.

Your calling is not what you can get.  It’s about what you can give to life.

What difference can you make to another?  How can you uplift another?

Commitment to your calling means you become the Creator of your life, where the magic happens, otherwise the environment creates you.  Which would you prefer?  To be a Creator or sheep? (no disrespect to sheep!)

Magic is the end result of what you can create for others and yourself, as you live your calling.

As you stay focussed, synchronicities will occur and you will be supported because you are aligned with what lights you up!

There is great energy generated in being in the high energy state of what lights you up.  It’s like being in love. But you will feel like that all the time!

To summarise, your calling is what fulfills you whilst benefitting others in some way.

You can use this formula to help you discover what your calling is:-

My calling is people experiencing…….?

Your calling is not where you are trying to get to.  It’s about where you are fundamentally and wholeheartedly coming from.

Stay true to yourself and be sincere.

Your calling is bigger than you. It is a vision you can align with and then the vision itself will carry you forward, guiding you and morphing as it becomes realized in the world.  Have fun!

And remember that YOU being you is fulfilling your calling.

Living your calling doesn’t have to be a big hoo-hah expression in the world.  It could simply be, being a great mother.

You can relax.  Simply ponder the question, ‘What is my calling’?  See what arises.  No need to stress.  Just be yourself and do the best you can in your interactions with others.

We can all certainly make a difference and already are in our own communities.

Just stay true to yourself and your authentic light.

Shine brightly.  All will be expressed from that.

Relax. Trust.

Affirmation: I AM INFINITE WORTH AND NOW ALIGN WITH MY CALLING FOR THE HIGHEST GOOD OF ALL.

Law of Attraction & Turning Thoughts Into Things

Have you ever wondered about Law Of Attraction and if it really works?

Would you like to know how to apply it and try it out for yourself?

Let me share with you why you might want to take notice of Law of Attraction and change your thinking so that you can make positive changes in your life, starting today.

To start, I’d like you to think about all the things that have been created in the world e.g houses, businesses, the billions of products we have, things in your home, appliances, food etc.

Now, I’d like you to think back to a time before these things were here in our experience.

And now I’d like you to think about where the ideas for these things to be created/produced started?

Stop for a moment and ponder….. Everything that is known to you as a physical tangible thing in our world, was first born inside someone’s head. Everything that has come into existence ie known to our senses, started as an idea or inspired thought/desire to create. Can you agree with this? Good.

Now, think about the things that you have in your home today. Take a good look around the room you are in right now, if you are at home reading this,and if not, do it later.

Before you got the things you have, you had a desire for these things or you thought about these things, right? So, do you see that they were all your ideas and thoughts before you had them manifest in your experience? The home you are living in.

At some point in the past, you had an ‘idea’ or ‘desire’ to move home. Or, you had a desire for a type of car. You took some action and then you got the car. There is the proof that your thoughts create your reality!

Everything is FIRST an idea or thought before it comes into creation.

Now, you don’t even have to believe in a higher power to get to grasps with the nature of how creation works. It IS IN YOUR EXPERIENCE, as fact.

Whether you admit it or not, whether it can be proven or not, which it can now. Look into quantum physics and you will find that scientists are discovering that consciousness creates matter/ideas etc.

Consciousness is the source of it all, meaning that your mind and thinking are the fuel for creating matter ie the physical appearance and experiences that show up in your life.

This is the basic of Law of Attraction teachings. They teach you to understand that you are the creator and that you have the power to shape your life with your thoughts and emotions.

So, what are you thinking/feeling today? What signal are you emitting to the universe? You will get back what you give out.

It is an energetic/vibrational universe.

Things begin in the non physical realms first, then they are transferred into the physical. Much like one of those coffee dispensing machines. Everything is silent, only the idea of coffee exists. You press the button to select the coffee and then a cup is dispensed and filled with water, milk and coffee. Et voila, coffee!

First there is the space for desire to be born, then comes the means for the tangible expression of the realised desire.

Thought is a intangible form of energy. It has the ability to shape matter, literally around you and before your very eyes. It happens quicker if you believe that it is possible or make it conscious. Otherwise you continue to create unconsciously with your inner most held beliefs and assumptions. Why not awaken to the fact that you have this ability to create your hearts desires instead?

To put this creation process into practise,you can start thinking thoughts that will manifest a life that is in alignment with your highest desires.

Seems too good to be true?

Yes, it can seem that way at first, until you start delving into it and begin to experience it for yourself.

You see, the world of ‘things’ around you exists in vibrational essence first, ie as an idea/desire.

You have the ability to create through intention/thought/desire.

Think about how creative our civilisation is?

From the first beginnings of creating tools to make fire, to the more advanced technologies of today. We created it!

Isn’t it amazing that we have the power to basically create anything we can imagine? Anything that improves our experience in this physical world or provides comfort and convenience e.g cars

So now you know that it’s actually possible to shape matter and create your world with your thoughts, desires and imagination, you can use it wisely for the highest good of all.

There is only one rule, and that is, only create with good intentions that does not infringe on another’s freewill. Remember you will always reap what you sow!

We are all one in this world together. Always be aware of what you are thinking and never think ill of another. We all came from one source but each one of us is here to create something wonderful for our lives, and ideally for the benefit of all. Remember to share!

Initially, we are service to self oriented and so we want to accumulate. As we mature, we can create in ways that benefit all.

By sharing our passions/vision for the highest good of all, we can be the change we wish to see in the world and be of service to our fellow beings.

So, if you want to change your life, start by changing your thoughts! Choose wisely.

Notice where you assume lack in your life. Where do you judge yourself or others? What parts of yourself require forgiveness and love?

Know that you are absolutely worthy to receive your good and true hearts desire.

Yes, there will be challenges, but you can change the way you think about what shows up. This will greatly change what you attract into your experience, and how you react to what is happening now.

Always be kind to yourself and love yourself unconditionally, just as the Universe does!

You are deserving of a wonderful life with the highest of what you can imagine for yourself.

Having this abundance mind set will also inpsire and help all of us to remember that we also are worthy. Become the best version of you, believing abundance is possible for all.

We humans all basically want the same things;- love, warmth, companionship, a comfortable home, purpose in our work/contribution, wellbeing, financial abundance. We are all deserving of achieving our goals/dreams and contributing something of value and benefit for all.

We are one.

Whilst we presently live in a society where we use money as an exchange for the goods and services we need to live/thrive, new systems will eventually be put in place.

Money is presently a symbol we use to exchange energy i.e pay for something someone has created or some kind of service. It is an exchange for goods/services. It is a cyclic system to repesent a flow of energy given or received. That’s all money is. Learning to appreciate what money represents and having gratitude for its back and forth flow is said to increase it’s yield.

If you wish to start putting LoA to work for you, start by catching yourself when you think of or believe in lack. Start replacing ‘lack’ thoughts with thoughts of abundance and all being well.

Change doesn’t happen overnight, it’s a process.

Start with worthiness and know that you deserve to be the person you wish to be and to enjoy experiences that resonate with you and help you expand.

You are unique and everyone has different desires depending on their purpose in being here.

Tune in and ask yourself what you wish to create and experience that is for your highest good?

Since everything is energy, I recommend you ‘feed’ your mind (or replace the lack programming) with thoughts of abundance on a daily basis.

Nourish your mind with inspiring material that affirms ideas of abundance and confidence.

Get to know yourself and unlearn the social conditioning of lack assumptions that may have come from your parents, teachers etc.

It is always helpful and supportive to find inspiration that is in tune with your goals and visions.

Make a detailed list of what you wish to create for yourself in your life.
Is there a calling you wish to unveil or become more aligned with?
What is it?

Who are you? And what did you come here to do and create?

You might want to get a notebook and write daily activities/ideas and quotes that are inspiring and will support this new attitude of abundance and purposeful living.

Gratitude for what you have now will attract more to be grateful for!

What are you grateful for?

Gratitude generates amazing ‘feel good’ energy that increases your vibration/energy, and will make you glow when you take it on board to practise everyday.

Start to notice the things or people around you that you are grateful for or appreciate e.g pets, spouse, the tree in your garden, your car, the food on your table tonight. The more you notice abundance in your life, the more it will increase.

See it! Feel it! Believe it!

You get more of what you focus on. Use your energy of attention wisely.   Attention gives more energy to what it is paying attention to.

Be grateful for your body, your smile, your teeth etc.
Increasing the ‘noticing’ of abundance in all areas of your life, multiplies the supply!

Keep smiling, be grateful.
Enjoy your life and what is given to you.

Don’t be complacent, keep gratitude alive! It creates a feeling of abundance.

The more gratitude you feel everyday, the more it shall bring to you to be grateful for.

Wishing you all the abundance, love and light.

My ebook Tune Into Bliss is about empowering ourselves to live abundant and purposeful lives and talks about how we can detach from limiting beliefs.

Compassionate Dietary Choices – Health & Animals

My reasons for eating vegan were not originally about the animals.  It was more for health reasons.  I had come across David Wolfe (The Sunfood Diet Success System), and his research seemed to support a raw plant-based diet as the the healthiest choice.  The fact that I had  been macrobiotic for a few years and was feeling a bit down and heavy may have had something to do with it as well.  So, when I came across David’s book, it was like a breath of fresh air!

And so it began.  It wasn’t just about being vegan, it was ‘raw’ vegan.  This strange new path that I was about to get on board with.  I did it for 13 years.  100% raw or certainly ‘uncooked’ to the best of my knowledge.  No cooked food, no processed food, hell, not even a bag of crisps!   It was tough.  My body didn’t know what had happened.  I began to lose weight.  I was following mainly a fruit diet to start with and it just wasn’t feeling very good after some time.

Thankfully, after a few years of not getting the results I had expected, I came across Gabriel Cousens and his wonderful book ‘Rainbow Green Live Food Cuisine’.  This book made sense and it covered a lot to do with tailoring a raw food diet on an individual basis and applying it in a balanced way.  Cousen’s recommended a mineral rich, low sweet approach which was refreshing after all the fruit sugars I had been consuming.

Cousens went into the scientifics of cellular metabolism and how cancer and candida growth are perpetuated by sugar and the SAD  (standard american diet).  Dr Cousen’s had over 30 years experience with a raw food diet and had also helped many people heal themselves at his rejuvenation center, following an ‘individuated’ raw plant based diet.


After a few months of following the diet that Cousen’s recommended, I saw results!  I finally felt healthy, had lots of energy and the way of eating was far more enjoyable with the inclusion of salty condiments/spices/oils and it all felt more ‘normal’ to me.  Being low on salt doesn’t work for everyone!   So, now my diet included a more raw ‘gourmet’ style of eating, including raw crackers, cookies, nut milks, salad dressings, spicy falafels and RAW CHOCOLATE!!!  Annnnd, I had worked out how my air/water constitution could best be balanced through tailored food preparation.

So, this became more of the norm and I started enjoying the plant based diet.  I began writing recipe books,and offering some low GI sweets by mail order.  It was all rosy.

And then it happened……….!

One day, I heard the pitter patter of tiny webbed feet on the outside window ledge and I looked up to see Mr Woody, the resident wood pigeon (he was a regular visitor!)  Yet something was different.  When I looked at him, I felt him as though he was part of me.  The sense of connection was so real to me, so amazing, and I knew in that moment ‘We Are All One’.  (The realisation inspired a song I entitled ‘All As One’)  I will never forget that moment.  It was the moment I became aware of my deep sense of connection with other living non-human beings.

I have always loved animals.  It wasn’t as though this was the first time I was appreciating them.  But there was something about that memory, that moment, that was pivotal in my committment to appreciating, empathically connecting with and respecting animals.  It was the day I was vegan not just for health, but absolutely for the animals too.

And so fast forward, blah de blah, to the present!  My own journey into dietary exploration in the first place was also from a place of seeking balance withing myself, mentally and emotionally.   Even though I had already had a blissful experience that was way beyond ‘chemistry’, still, I undertook this experimental path to learn more about myself in relation to food and to observe the subtle effects on my mind and emotions.

I have always been on a spiritual journey seeking the higher truths of existence.  Wondering what the purpose of our existence/creation is.  Moving towards eating a plant based diet has been a part of that evolution on the path of self-realization for me.   I feel that as we awaken to the best in ourselves, we will also naturally come to respect that all living beings are also here for an individual experience, as part of their species evolution.  I feel that since, we can make big changes that affect those lives, we have a responsibility to be guardians of peace and safety to support the fulfillment of their purpose too.  And as we do so, we are accelerating our own conscious development in the process.

When I look at an ‘animal’, it is simply a reflection/expression of the Divine or Source, or Infinite Intelligence, or however you wish to put it.  It is consicousness looking back at consciousness.  And I wish to say,
‘Namaste: I bow to the Divine In You’. ~ Anabrese

And that is how I see the beings known as ‘animals’.  In the film Avatar, do you remember the part where the female character says ‘I see you’?  It is the moment of recognizing the Beloved in another, the raw infinite intelligence in all.

I see you

If we are to be consciously intelligent awake/loving human beings, surely the qualities to develop include compassion and respect for all of the Creator’s Creations?   If we are all One, then can we live like that through our choices, with our dollars?  We can vote for love, compassion and respect for all.  We have that power, YOU have that power……today.   I trust you will use it well.

I looked, and behold, I saw that ‘It’ was me ~ Anabrese

Fur Friends Moving On – Lessons in The Eternal Now

Fur baby Mocha
Fur baby Willow

And so it was that my dear fur friend Mocha, transitioned last Sunday, exactly one week ago now.   I had been nursing her for around 6 weeks, making special food, helping her wash, even wheel barrowing her around for some physical movement (holding up the back tumour that was preventing her use her legs)  Such is the way for many pet rats.

Mocha had already had 2 lump removals Jan/Feb, which had given her extra time with her friends over the last 8 months.  She would have been 3 years of age next month which is a good age for a rat.

I had been talking to a friend about euthanasia, as this had been my dilemna the whole time, thinking ‘was it kinder to let her go?’, to aid  her transition, but every time, it just didn’t feel the right thing to do.  And so, I delayed.  However, last Sunday, for the first time, Mocha wouldn’t eat and I knew she was very close.  At around 7pm  I sat down to watch ‘What Dreams May Come,’ a film about the afterlife.

As the film got to the part where the spirit of the husband made his wife write down the words ‘I still exist‘ – Mocha literally took a couple of stretches and took leave of her body.  It turned out that a friend I hadn’t been in touch with awhile had also had her rat girl Willow transition exactly one hour earlier than Mocha.  I had felt moved to get in touch just the next day and she told me about her little Willow.

Around 4 days later, I met Mocha in the dream world.  There appeared a mass of living material, sort of dome shaped, around the size of a tennis ball.  There was something inside of it that was trying to move forward but it couldn’t with this mass on top of it.  I lifted it up, and there was Mocha!  I exclaimed in surprise, ‘Mocha’!  And there was my little friend!  She was slim, able to move and without any lumps!  Fully healed.  I lifted her up close to me and that is all I can remember.

This is not uncommon in my experience.  To receive some sort of communication from one of my beloved rat friends after they have crossed the threshold of this physical world.  Some may say it was my subconscious but I know that there is connection with Spirit.  It has been in my experience too often to suggest otherwise.

So, I just wanted to share my little story with you.  And maybe it will bring some comfort to those who have lost their furry friend recently.

I do very much feel that they go on and these dreams of them appearing whole and healed, are because they have been (healed), restored to full health in that other space/dimsension.  I saw my mother there as well and she was youthful and vibrant looking, and she even made a joke about how good she was looking!

This physical world is only one reality, but we are  connected to all timelines of existence, whether physical or non physical.  Connection and communication therefore with our loved ones who have shifted their consciousness to the non physical, seems completely viable and possible if we are but open to it.

Cheap and Cheerful Health Drink – Green Smoothie

I recently bought a Berg Blender to get back into making massive amount of smoothie to share with friends and family.   I had been using a Kenwood 2 go smoothie maker for the last year or so, which was actually quite good for the job and very economical.  But since I had had a vitamix in the past, I was ready to treat myself to a crazily high powered blender again and one that could handle making nuts butters and icecream.

Berg 1500W

The Berg high powered blender can handle making nut butter, ice cream, chopping up veggies, crushing ice and is good for making raw soups, something I was in the habit of doing some years ago!

The Berg is a fraction of the price of the vitamix at just over £100 at the time of writing, and according to many reviews, it has the same functionality as the Vitamix.  They weren’t wrong!  It also comes with a 7 year warranty!

Vitamix Total Nutrition Center

So, today, after being on soup for a week to recover from a cold, I took the first step at making a green smoothie with the Berg.   And boy, did it perform!  It’s actually pretty smooth and quiet compared to the Vitamix for making smoothies, and I only had to ‘pulse’ it a few times for a super smooth drink.  The ingredients were pretty easy for it to mulch up so it produced a beautifully textured smoothie in no time!

My green drink

2  large handfuls of spinach

4-5 strawberries

2 bananas

drop of vanilla essence

pinch of sea salt

cup of water

I used the ‘smoothie’ pulse button and the machine blended it all up to smooth perfection.  It was yummy too!

A daily green smoothie is very cheap to incorporate into one’s daily diet.  And even if you only had one glass a day, you would be ‘nutritional miles’ ahead.

Kenwood Smoothie 2 Go

Ready to give it a go?   Try a daily green smoothie and see how you feel?  And, you don’t have to invest in a high powered blender like the Berg.  You can start with something simple like the Kenwood Smoothie 2 Go.    I wanted the Berg as I could make more volume and I plan to keep extra in the fridge.   I also desired the increased funcionality  for making nut butters and ice cream.  It is also considered a commercial blender which means it can handle frequent use, such as at classes etc.

Let me know how you get on with the smoothie and feel free to share your favourite smoothie recipe in the comments below.

Feeling Good Matters

Sing Your Tune

Each one of us is a light, a cell in the body of humanity.  A little battery pack that has the ability to generate energy or emit a frequency/vibration that affects the whole.  Your light/energy and contribution to the ‘field’ or radiance of the whole is important and essential.

Your thoughts and emotions are affecting your energy or vibration and how good you can feel in any moment.  You have the opportunity to be conscious of this and navigate how you feel.

Energy is continually available to you and how you use it is up to you.

If you can imagine yourself as a tuning rod or pitch fork, the more ‘in tune’ you are with yourself, conscious of ‘what’ or ‘how’ you are vibrating/toning, the more you can make tiny calibrations so that you can feel better and better.

If you can attune yourself to the source of the sound itself, you can align yourself to feel good all the time and be a ‘light’ rod that contributes to the raising of the good vibes for the whole planet at this time.  This is the responsibility now for each one of us if we wish to live in paradise on earth.

How you feel matters, what you emanate affects the whole.  And, on a positive note, when you are vibrating high and feeling good, you will likely have a better life experience, things will shift for you in your life for the better too!  So, it’s a win-win, are you in?

So how do you make this positive shift to feeling good more and more?

There are many ways but one thing you can do is to make sure you start your day as you mean to go on!

Upon first waking, feed your mind (a good breakfast!) with some positive affirmations such as:-

This is a great day!
Everything is always working out for me.
I am so grateful for……… (think of at least 10 things and ‘feel’ into why)
Good things are always happening to me!
I am loved.
Today there is a perfect unfolding for me and I am so grateful.
I am always in the right place at the right time for my Highest Good.
I feel glad to be alive in these transformative times and know that I have something valuable to contribute.

You get the idea?

Meditating first thing in the morning is also a great thing to do. Connect with the vast spaciousness within, simply allowing thoughts to come and go.   Rest in the pure awareness of Being, your true self and simply be present.  Relax your mind and just Be.

Make it a habit to ‘feel good’.  Generally speaking, we are not ‘trained’ in this way and have to do it purposefully, consciously.

Diminish activity that doesn’t feel good to you.  Your wellbeing and feeling good is crucial for the planet to awaken.  Can you awaken to your true self?  Can you awaken to feeling good?  Yes you can!  Just pay attention to how you feel and take steps to counter balance anytime you feel stress or negative emotion.  Breathe, chill out, walk in nature.  Make your FEELING GOOD THE HIGHEST PRIORITY.  If you don’t it for yourself, no one else will.  No one else can make you feel good.  This is your responsibility.  Will you claim it?  Will you claim your right to feeling good now?  I hope so!  Because when you feel good, you become a permission slip to allow others to do so also.

As each one of us takes responsibility for our own feeling good, we raise the vibration on the planet and positive energy flows for the good of all.  Your positive intentions are needed!

So, will you take that step today?  Start making your wellbeing, your feeling good your TOP PRIORITY.  Do it now.  Thank you, I love you.

6 Tips For A Happier Day

edited-wellbeing

  1. As soon as you wake up in your bed in the morning, start saying ‘thankyou’ and then think of at least 10 things you are thankful for and get into the ‘feeling’ of why you’re grateful for these things. Keep saying thank you in your mind as you get out of bed and go to the bathroom.  See if you can just spend those first 15 mins of the day just saying ‘thankyou’ Adopting a habit of gratitude and appreciation makes for a happier emotional state of being.
  2. Drink a glass of lemon water which helps to cleanse toxins and hydrate your body. Say ‘thankyou’ for the clean water and take a moment to appreciate the fact you have clean water available to you as well as running hot water for bathing in your home.
  3. Meditate – meditation helps to still the mind and early in the morning before the momentum of the day begins, is a good time to practise.  Light a candle if you like and just sit quietly for 15-20 minutes.  Take a few long breaths  to start and visualise something that feels good to you.  Enjoy this time for yourself. You can imagine being in a lovely place  like a forest or by the ocean with the sunlight coming down through your head and moving through your body, filling you up with light, energy and peace.
  4. After your meditation, say a few affirmations such as ‘this is going to be a really good day’ or ‘everything is always working out for me’ or ‘everything is unfolding this day for my highest good in  perfect timing’ or make up your own positive affirmations that resonate with you.
  5. Then, just go about your day as usual but you’ve set the ‘tone’ for positive expectation and given yourself a peaceful and grounding start that should filter throughout your day, benefitting you in whatever situation you’re faced with.
  6. Before you go to sleep at night, mentally go over your day and remember the best things that happened that day and give thanks.  This implants positive visuals and emotions  before you go to sleep and can help you to have a more peaceful sleep and dreams.

Happy Days!!! 🙂
