[1: 1,973 of 10,000] Collaborating With My Mind

In Article on January 21, 2020 at 6:47 AM

Marisa Peer

I have an AHA moment after listening to therapist Marisa Peer’s TEDxKCS talk called To reach beyond your limits by training your mind. It’s mind-blowing and let me break it down for you, one because I need to ingrain it in my mind so I can get what I want and two because you can use it to your favor.

The mind wants 4 things and if I know this then I can hack it into my advantage. My mind is my intellect and the monkey that occupies my wild imaginations, the incessant thought that creates scenes after scenes in my head and the worst part is when I even fall to believe a lie.

1: My mind does exactly what it thinks I want in my best interest. Hack: I have to be very clear to tell my mind what I really want. If I want to become a best-selling author, then I have to tell my mind that I am a best-selling author and write to finish the book. If I’m in the zone, I also attract the right people into my orbit. (Side note: I’m loving the word ‘orbit’ lately!)

2: My mind is hard-wired to move me towards pleasure and avoiding pain. Any successful endeavor requires putting work. The only time it doesn’t feel like hard work is if I like what I’m doing, but the reality is there’s work to be done. Hack: Condition myself to link that I have massive pleasure doing hard work. It feels awful to exercise but it’s the only way for my muscles to get healthy so I got to enjoy while exercising.

3: My mind response to 2 things that affect my feelings, (a) what I picture in my head and (b) the words that I say to myself. Hack: Picture that I am doing it and use words that are positive to me. Stop with the low vibration thoughts. I have a brilliant mind and I better use it positively.

4.  My mind is programmed to what’s familiar. Hack: Make the unfamiliar familiar especially my self-beliefs. Familiarize myself to love my self, my work, my life and are grateful to everything that’s happening to me. Unfamiliarize me from procrastination and not good enough thoughts, move those words out of my vocabulary.

In Journal on July 4, 2017 at 10:47 AM

My sister, my only flat mate, just left to have a vacation in Europe. I am left alone in our one bedroom apartment in Dubai. I couldn’t stand the silence for a long time knowing that I am alone and resulted to opening the television, playing something from Netflix through my laptop, or playing a podcast out loud from my phone. But when my sister is around, I love the wee hours where there is complete quietness and I can hear my raging thoughts, making plans for the future, and listing my graces that I’m grateful for.

There is a puzzle in my head that I couldn’t solve, my heart is restless and there’s struggle in my dreams when I sleep. I feel that I am close to solving it though, the pieces are all over the place but maybe I am missing a key, and I want desperately to finish in order to see the picture. I am haunted for not finishing and yet I also see the beauty of having it unfinished; but is settling with the unfinished showed that I got a mindset of a blind investor who did not calculate the risks?

I am worried, probably because of the Venti Caramel Macchiato from Starbucks or my body demands that I hit the gym. There are split moment that I caught myself to cease the worrying because it is not useful, but instead have the courage to do the work and show up to the things that I am passionate about, work to be great at it, or pursue to make it happen.

In Journal on July 28, 2016 at 7:48 PM


I have to take care of my mind, body, and spirit.

I keep neglecting every single one of them.

24 hours in a day was made that way for a specific purpose. Day is for toiling, while night is for resting.

I deplete my energy up to the last bit but fails to fully recharge.

Oh peace, please come to me. My worries do not leave me and it leaves me missing good sleep.

I love having a perfect amount of rest at night because I expect myself to be healthy, smart on my decision making, and alert in completing task with gladness.

I have another night to practice and build the right habit.

[1: 1,601 of 10,000] The Race Inside My Head

In Article on September 26, 2015 at 10:01 AM


You don’t want to go inside my head right now because it’s moving so fast and it desires to do million things that aren’t possible. It hurries like today is the last day of my life! 😀 I am not really exaggerating and it is neither advisable nor healthy.

I like this quiet Saturday on the outset where I am at the dining table at 9:45 AM, looking out at the window with bright sunlight, just finished my hot peppermint tea, and calming myself that I can do one thing at a time and be present when doing it in my comfy pajama.

It is undeniable that I have a talent of juggling two to four tasks at the same time and anticipating possibilities and the best way to deal with them before they even really happened; and yet the consequence is my heart palpitate with excitement, my brain invites worries of all the possible things that could also go wrong, and I end up frazzled and even frozen with an overwhelmed feeling.

It takes practise to enjoy every moment that I live my life. I only have right now and thank God that I am not in a middle of a war zone with physical challenges that could cause me pain; but it doesn’t give me the license that I create my own mind battle that will kill me again inside.

Chill. Relax. Breathe.

It’s a beautiful weekend and I am loving every minute of it.

[1: 1,560 of 10,000] I Am Not Separate From You And Everyone

In Article on August 16, 2015 at 8:48 AM


The ego that resides inside in each of us, the thinking mind and the constant chattering that will not stop unless we’ve managed to be still and recognise that it isn’t us, is the same mind that makes us believe that we are separate from one another.

You and I are connected. You and I in spirit have so much abundance of everything but most of all we’re made one in LOVE. In the physical realm we are often clouded with selfishness, greed, protection of what we believed is our terriroty, what is ours and ours alone, yet in truth nothing separates us but the mind who is not even us.

The mind collects memories and creates images that would make us feel okay or to be in control, but that’s not who we really are and it’s not what we’re supposed to be doing. We are meant to collaborate with one another to achieve peace. We are supposed to extend forgiveness when we go astray so we may begin again. We are supposed to serve one another with our best selves to feel fulfilled, enjoying, and to feel love multiplying.

Why do we want to be better than anyone? Why do we want others to be worthy than us? We are all enough. We are all able to serve one another with a smile on our face.

As shared by Marianne Williamson, “Loving people is the experience of God whether you believe in Him or not.”

May we live with love in everything we do, we think, and we believe. May we use our talents, energy, and resources to build one another.

[1: 1,325 of 10,000] I Am Crazy for Painful Massage

In Journal on June 7, 2014 at 5:59 PM

I am so crazy for massage; the painful one. It feels like only the painful one could pop all the aching parts. I feel like my age strained the muscles at my neck, shoulder, and back. Or the simple reality that I am stressing out on things that could actually be managed if I stop being a drama queen.

My beautiful Mum used to give me the most divine acupressure; so divine I almost pee myself and begged her to stop so I can recuperate or simply breathe. Since she got really sick and passed away; I have never found anyone who has a pair of hands that soothe every tensed muscles in my immaculate body.

Last Monday, I tried Thai Massage, I wasn’t sure if it was just the technique but the soft hands didn’t satisfy. Today, i just finished a 2-hour Hot Stone Full Body Massage & a generous Foot Massage, I haven’t been having peace of mind lately so for the first time on a massage bed, I fell asleep and snored! I was not actually embarrass to the therapist because the way I saw it, it is a definite compliment. I wish we were at home and I could slumber all throughout.

It’s a good day being pampered by someone who seems to love what she is doing.
