Imagine Magik !
Magic happens everytime we dream! Magic, as fascinating as it sounds, is quite a simple art if you believe it. Touch your inner magic through simple practices such as yoga or meditation. Connecting to your inner magic is as simple as breathing.
Life can be much like a challenging relationship! On again, off again, bursts of emotions, good days, challenging days, ups and downs, hot and cold emotions. Life can be a challenge at best, especially over the past two years it's put many of us to the test as we ride the emotional roller coaster!
Unless off course you have a 'go to' counsellor, psychic or a BFF who really cares it can feel daunting. Ways to remain focused and in control of emotions can be simple and cost little to nothing.
One such way is connecting with like minded souls, reaching out can be therapeutic healing, add value to life and have lasting benefits.
As my grandmother use to say 'birds of a feather flock together' seeking out like minded people who support, understand and hear you out, especially on those tricky days when all goes 'flat' in life, will lift the burden from your heart. You don't have to go it alone, provided you find your flock, your soul group with like minded souls.
On days when life feels overwhelming, I like to read a feel-good book or simply 'Net-flix it' with a feel good movie, it's far better than chocolate, and can lighten the emotional weight. Yoga breathing can also add that special spark to any dull day, simply play a soothing music track you love, find a safe, quiet space, close your eyes take three nice deeeep breaths in and out, for the next five minutes relax and imagine you're a beautiful bird flying high, releasing all those blocked emotions, letting go of difficult people in your life, the higher you fly the lighter the burden becomes, feel the wind beneath your wings carry away those overwhelming emotions, release, let go, feel FREE!
After five or ten minutes visualize yourself back in your physical space, take three nice deeeep breaths in and out, drink a healthy warm or cool beverage to feel grounded and carry on with your life. Remember find your 'flock' and stick together. Enjoy the journey beautiful souls. Spread your wings and fly, the sky's the limit.

Inner peace is a journey, peace of mind is the destination. Inner Peace is achievable, life can be made easier and we can cut worry and stress in half by following some simple directions, a bit like following directions on a navigator when travelling. Bhakti Yoga or the yoga of devotion has saved many from the grips of stress anxiety and the ever present 'monkey mind'.
You may practice Bhakti Yoga at home or find a teacher. It starts with a daily routine of five minutes of simply sitting in a quiet place, being still and listening to the sound of your breathing which sounds like the ocean. As simple as this may sound many find it easier to run around multi-tasking than to sit still for five minutes, but this short but effective five minutes out of our busy lives is the key to finding inner peace.
Finding Inner Peace not only helps us feel more relaxed and focused it allows us to be more in tune with our inner wisdom, to listen to our inner voice. It can be achieved by sitting in silence as you listen to your breathing, gently in through the nose and out through the mouth, it will change the way you feel instantly. In addition, gazing at a serene image whilst sitting in silence may be of benefit, some serene images I like to use are a peaceful pond, a sunset, a bed of roses or just gazing into a candle flame.

Stress and worry are two strong intuition blockers. I hear my clients say, when I'm under a lot of stress my emotions get in way and my intuition 'goes out the window’ I make rash decisions, or my relationships suffer as a result.
It's all one vicious circle really, but there is light at the end of the tunnel, and that guiding light for many Zen masters is...tah dah...yoga and yogic chanting!
I started yoga twenty years ago after a failed marriage, yoga helped me go within my core, remain centred, focused and balanced whilst everything on the 'outside was falling apart. So today I'd like to share a simple technique to help my lovely readers find peace in a world that's falling apart.
Step 1. Wake up 5 mins earlier than usual so you can sit in bed for 5 mins and mentally prepare for your day ahead.
Step 2 Hold a pillow against your chest, close your eyes and take three nice long deep breaths exhaling any unwanted thoughts/mind clutter.
Step 3 Repeat the mantra OM eight times (or more if you like) in your mind if you have room mates, or out aloud if you have more privacy.
Take three long deep breaths, as you exhale chant the OM mantra, the shift will be profound and lasting throughout the day. You may repeat this simple chanting at night before retiring. OM chanting at the start and finish of your day clears the Third Eye chakra, clears the mind of unnecessary mind clutter, which helps us make better decisions throughout the day.
With love Marayah Rose
OM OM OM OM OM OM OM OM
