These 5 simple things: advice to my younger self

Do you ever wish you could go back in time and give some advice to your younger self?  Here’s what came to me today during meditation of what I might say (with love) to the young girl I once was.  Please bear in mind, we should never berate ourselves for the things we have done in the past, for these all help us to learn life lessons along the way.    This post is also for Debbie Roth’s #forgivingfridays.

Nostalgia and Love

 

What if our four-year old self knew what was ahead of us!  Would we still make the same choices, do the same things?  Or would knowledge of what was to come dampen our enthusiasm for being a daredevil, or indeed encourage us to jump outside the box from time to time and do crazy things?

Offerings of devotion

“A leaf, a flower, a fruit, or even water, offered to me in devotion, I will accept as the loving gift of a dedicated heart.” 

These loving words were spoken by Lord Krishna to his devotee Arjuna in Chapter 9 of the Bhagavad Gita (the Hindu Bible if you like).  It was written centuries before the Christian Bible, and at a time of higher spiritual attunement to God.  The sentiments are clear:  if a person is sincerely seeking God, determinedly trying to be a better person each day, meditating regularly and deeply, this person need not offer gifts of material wealth to God. Rather, seekers are encouraged to offer up everything they think, do, say, eat, drink, see, touch and so on, even and especially the smallest thing, so that we realise that it is God Himself that is behind everything.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Linktree

Do you have lots of social media links?  Are you fed up typing them all at the end of posts and on any pieces of writing that you do?  Try linktree (it’s free!) and really easy to set up and use.  Here’s an image of what my linktree looks like.  If you click on the image, it will take you to my linktree account (@healingwordsblog).   You then simply have to click on whichever link you want to explore.  I think this is a great idea and would be really useful for your existing and potential customers.

Perhaps I’m late on the uptake to Linktree, and if you know all about it already, you have my permission to roll your eyes and give a slight shake of the head in pity at my ignorance, lol !!  Anyway, happy blogging everyone and have a great weekend.  Cannot wait, Spring is definitely in the air here in Scotland and I want to get out for a walk in nature.  Anita 😁🌳

p.s.  have you checked out my new Podcast site? ( healingwordsblogpodcast )  There are only 2 episodes, but more will be added soon.  It’s been fun learning all the new skills involved!  Constructive feedback would be welcome.

Out with the old (2)

I love this quote from Rumi above.  It was the starting point for my new PODCAST channel on Soundcloud (yay! – major learning curve overcome).  This episode offers guidance on how sorrowful thoughts can be used to our advantage.  It’s a 5-minute listen, easy to do while you’re busy with daily tasks.

You can tune in here:  Podcast Episode 2 Out with the Old

I would love your feedback and any helpful suggestions!  Anita.
