Prosperity by Iyanla Vanzant

I came across this a few days ago in Iyanla’s book, Acts of Faith. It has daily inspirational passages and I dip into it from time to time. Prosperity gets thrown around a lot at this time of year as people wish each other success and wealth in the new year.

But, Iyanla discusses that prosperity is so much more. This passage made me think about prosperity in a whole new way…I hope you enjoy and get something out of it too!

“If you have things to do and protect that you think others can take away from you, you are not prosperous.

If you are not comfortable with yourself no matter where you are, you are not prosperous.

If you believe others can take your ideas, your mate, your things, you are not comfortable.

Propsperity is a state of mind. When worry or fear crowd your mind, you cannot be prosperous.

If you know you will eat even when you don’t have a dime, you are prosperous.

When you can love and give all that you have, you are prosperous.

When you do what you love without pay or reward, you are prosperous.

When you do what you can because you can, not for the money only, you are prosperous.

When you love all people for who they are, not for what they can give you, you are a wealthy being.

Prosperity is a a state of mind.”

-Iyanla Vanzant, Acts of Faith  

Much peace, love, blessings (and prosperity) to you all

I give it up to you…

I give it up to you.

When I no longer know what to do.

I turn it over to you, Allah!

I shouldn’t have waited so long before giving it to you.

As I lay in Sujood, I feel that pain.

The inner, emotional pain that came to revisit me again.

That empty, sad, unfulfilled and flat feeling-Sometimes I don’t even know how to explain it!

I don’t know how to get rid of it or heal it!

So, I give it up to you, Allah!

Don’t Ignore! Ask!

As simple as that is, that’s my advice if you notice someone is in a mood or down.

Just acknowledge them….Do not ignore them!

My husband casually told me during a conversation that when I was in a bad mood recently he purposefully ignored me!

His reasoning was:

“I was in a good mood and didn’t want you bringing me down!”

As I type this, my self-esteem is taking a knock! Continue reading “Don’t Ignore! Ask!”

5 free Guided Meditations I love #freebies #links

Why do I love guided meditations?

I struggle to tell myself the ‘good-stuff’! So, that’s where guided meditations come in!

Sitting meditations, help to clear my mind but I feel I need some positive input and affirmations about myself and my life, and moving forward with a positive mindset…which isn’t always easy to do!

Also…there’s something nice about hearing how beautiful and amazing I am –  Especially, when I don’t feel it!

Even if you fall asleep- which is highly likely your subconscious is still awake and taking it all in! #winning

So, what are my favs?

Developing a Morning Routine

I’ve always wondered about the idea of a “morning routine”.  After all, you always hear about the amazing benefits (I’m sure you’ve heard them all before).

I recently realised that I am actually developing a morning routine, all quite naturally. Just by following the things that energize me and make me feel good! Its not quite rocket science, but because I’ve been so out of touch with doing what makes me happy- its quite a revelation!

Connecting to The Creator is the very first thing I do each morning, and this has become second nature since I became Muslim-so much so that I didn’t even consider it as part of my morning routine until writing this post.

Now, I’ve added something that really helps me to connect to myself.

It began as a challenge to see if I would notice any positive effects of doing this energy-healing stretching routine known as a Daily Energy Routine curated by Donna Eden.

I  had been performing it every morning for two weeks. One particular morning I went straight into making breakfast and straight into preparing dinner. Lets just say I was in the kitchen for a while and was beginning to feel resentful…a feeling that I hadn’t felt for a while.

Inspirational Litter

I came across this lovely note a couple weeks back on a walk.  I found it moving at the time and a great reminder. Thought I’d share the love!

This was the back of the handwritten card…I definitely found it inspiring!

Have you ever come across any ‘inspirational litter’?



Much love, peace and blessings to you,
