Journaling Thoughts, Brings Affirmations That Transform…..

Journaling today, has set my agenda for the new week ahead! That agenda is all about health being without a doubt, wealth. To create the type of wealth I want for my mental and physical health, I need to set daily intentions with affirmations, that keeps my ignition on full power.  Living with invisible illness, that ideology can be hard but with practice, when you set the mind to think healthy thoughts, you can stay on board the track to filling up on a wealth of health.

The connection between our mind and body is becoming more prominent, with regard to healing the illnesses that we cannot see.  You see, a lot of invisible illnesses are heightened by negative thought and emotions because our immune systems have been lowered and compromised for an abundant number of reasons. When we can allow our minds to become still and calm, we give ourselves a chance to heal right down to the cellular core.
Living with chronic and invisible health conditions, many of us allow our emotions to be controlled by our thought patterns and these  very thought patterns are often formed at will, when needed to comfort us when we are in fear or doubt about health and life. Setting intentions using affirmations daily, help us to create new and more positive thought patterns and thus help us to develop new strategies for healing our health.
The quote, β€œChange your thoughts, change your life” is so profound when building stronger and resilient health foundations. You can fill the mind with new healing health thoughts and actions when you choose to use regular positive health intentions and affirmations. One such affirmation that I use every single day is this beauty – 

“Every passing day my body becomes more energetic, more healthy.”

Repeating affirmations like this one, over and over has absolutely helped me find new and positive steps into healing my health. Even, when the day is glum, simply allowing myself to find a place to be still brings me back to the heart of my affirmation and positivity reigns over the pain and suffering that maybe being felt. The process of repeating a sentence as an intention or affirmation, over and over regularly impresses the subconscious mind, so that it slowly starts transforming the body to align with the mental thoughts that you want to attract.

As I said before , there is more and more  profound evidence through medical research, about chemicals, naturally found in our bodies reacting differently to emotions in our  minds, thus making us negative or positive. When we are healthy and happy, the  chemicals  produce emotions that are helpful to us.  When we are sad and perhaps ill of health, these chemicals are harmful to our bodies. Thus, thoughts affect the body. It is clear that positive affirmations for health can have only positive effects on the body. 

So I believe, by selecting a affirmation that will help create new health boundaries is an important step to finding that wealth of health. The affirmation I mentioned earlier is on repeat many times a day internally and externally for me.  I will generally use one main affirmation for many months or until I can see it manifesting what I am affirming into my reality, but I do have other affirmations and intentions that I can use at particular times. Affirmations complement my more mainstream medical treatments BUT they do not replace them and nor would I want them too. I have not discontinued any treatment or medication, that my doctors have prescribed, however by using affirmations, I have strengthened my mind and body allowing positive change to help me achieve a much better journey towards holding the health and life that I want. By following this path, slowly but surely I am reducing medications and treatments to more natural and holistic ways of healing.

These are some of my other favourite affirmations that I have used and still use;

  • My mind is calm and peaceful, allowing me to be more energetic & vibrant in thought and action.
  • Every day is a new day full of hope, happiness and health.
  • I am my own creator, because I create who I am and what I am.
  • I breathe in deeply, so that every cell in my body is conscious to greatness.

So as I closed my journal this morning…..my breath took me to a place where I stand wth so much power.  That power is because I align so closely to the affirmation that sings in my heart with every breath I take and make. Even with my tired days, I can feel energy transforming my most inner self allowing within me that without a doubt health is wealth and I am becoming abundant in all areas of it.

If my ramblings today, about journaling and affirmations have helped you,  that makes me happy.  Because by sharing my experiences of living with invisible illness in despair and joy is why I light the flame for greater awareness. If we haven’t connected in social media yet, make sure you jump by and say hi on the following channels and if you want to light the flame for invisible illness, we launch tomorrow.

Tired, Weary, Broken & Fucked Up……..

So what happens when we fall……and we all do!

You know, those moments when we are tired, weary, broken & fucked up!!!!


These thoughts, feelings and actions occur when we live with invisible illness. These are the moments that make us need to keep fighting the pain of being chronically and invisibly ill. Illnesses such as anxiety, depression, autoimmune and neurological disorders fill us with scars that embed deeply into our mental, emotional and physical being. 

Beginning the process of healing and recovery from these debilitating illnesses takes work BUT throughout the process and progress, low energy succumbs and we fall……! We tire and perhaps stumble from all the work that it takes to recover AND it affects us…..and if this happens, we fall and we break!!!! 

When this happens, we feel that we have fucked everything up……all that progress-RUINED!

But these emotions that come and go when wandering a journey with invisible illness are real and we should not be ashamed of letting the world see them! We haven’t fucked up….it’s a stumble and yeah, if we fall, it’s just that a fall…..stand back up – be present and be YOU! Remember even mentally and physically strong people fall! This conversation that I am having tonight is such a strong anti-suicide message, for why fighting is so important to remember when we are overwhelmed with the chronic pain and suffering of these illnesses.

You are saying. . . but at these moments I’m too tired to keep fighting……Yeah, I get it, I’ve felt really tired too and YES I still tire after all my 15 years fighting……but I won’t give up, I don’t give up!

Invisible illnesses are diseases that can take a life time to recover from. They grind away at our inner most core, sucking the life out of us, just as we are rebuilding ourselves up from the ground. The fight becomes a moment to moment battle everyday and as we go, we have to listen to the self whispering, but more than that we have to stand up to our voices and the external voices who don’t recognise our illnesses as illnesses……it’s exhausting, and it’s why we get tired, weary and feel broken and fucked up!

These illnesses, these invisible fucking illnesses never take holidays so every day and every night you have to fight, fight and fight again. You might be finding the biggest reasons in the world to give up, but those reasons don’t need to be your reality. In fighting these illnesses, no one can see or know how hard you’re working to keep going every day. The fight is hard and in the walk to recovery you will feel broken.

BUT, WE NEED TO FIGHT……I know, you are saying, you don’t want too,  sometimes I have said that too, but you don’t get to stop. I’m sorry, but the statistics say life is better than death and I insist you go on living……I am and I do!

But the good news is that when you choose to fight, you choose to take your next breath. Our invisible illnesses want to steal us of everything that we want to and need to experience today, tomorrow and the days after that. But we are  not going to let these illnesses win. We are going to breathe in and out, one breath at a time, each and everyday knowing that this is our best fight and it’s enough, it will always be enough, because I am enough and you are enough!

Being tired is OK. Being weary is OK, feeling broken and yelling that we have fucked up is OK. But by taking the next breath…..after the yelling session, is all we need to do…..because that’s the process of the healing fight.
If you are resonating with my thoughts, feelings and conversations tonight please let me know, by liking and sharing this blog.

 I write about my experiences with wandering a journey with all the invisible illnesses that are part of me because when we share our stories we connect and help each other.

I am a advocate and speaker who has made it my mission to change the way healing and recovery is seen for all that live with invisible illness.

I’ve Been Gifted & Now I’m Gifting You, The Art Of Meditation….

Today I recorded my first set of healing meditations.

This has been a huge step for me, as it has put me on a platform of knowing that through mindful action I have learnt to control my inner most thoughts and it has set me on my newest path to determining a true quality of life.

Through meditation I have found the ability to control those words that nobody else can hear. By learning how to turn down or better turning off that inner voice, I’ve been able to shift not only my internal actions but also my external happenings. In doing this, I am improving my brain functions that have been severely impacted by a range of of chronic illnesses over many years.

Meditation heals and it has allowed me to go within my own self, learning how my thoughts, feelings and actions can be breathed clearly and freely without stress and judgement that the busyness of modern world gives.

Meditation changes lives and it has changed mine! It has brought me a new level of awareness and a form of gentle art that is changing the way I do things. It allows me a sense of positivity that absolutely brings me peace of mind through an internal light that has been switched on giving me so much happiness to my healing journey. This is why everyday I wake to meditation that sets the foundations to the rest of my day. To ensure my day stays as it starts I will stop for shortened meditation sessions. These shorter meditations are also great, if external stresses come flowing across life! Of course, just as I did when I awoke I also allow meditation in before I go to sleep. These moments of going inwards allows me to let go of all the daily thoughts and actions,  in readiness for my mind and body to rest.

Meditation has given me a gift that I shall always be grateful for and that’s why I would like to offer you the same gift. If you would like to try using meditation to help your healing journey please email me at harmonishakti@gmail.com

Meditation, You Are My Intimate Friend….πŸ™πŸ»

Tonight, as most nights I sat with stillness – yes meditation AND can I tell you what I deciphered is that my meditation is sitting intimately with thy self saying hello beautifully and blissfully. 
Being able to develop and create such a internal connection is a special kind of inner relationship that leads me to being able to make amazing magic in life, despite the crippling hurdles that have been met.
I say to you, if you are struggling take a moment or maybe a few and let the journey with mindfulness take you away. Let it take you to you, through your breathe in every beat! What you will find is a friendship like no other AND it’s a friendship that can greet you whenever you choose to take its hand…..
Are you ready?

Stress – It Does Make Us Sick!

Need something else to get stressed out about on this Sunday evening!

Ok here it is, stress itself can and does make you sick. It. doesn’t only make us feel awful emotionally, it can and does also worsen just any health condition that we can think of . Don’t get too stressed out about being stressed out, though because there is some good news and that is there are 4 simple stress relief tips using mindfulness, that can counter and lower further health issues. 

The next time you feel stressed, try one of these simple easy tips;
1 – Breathe deeply. Just a few minutes of deep breathing can calm you and tame the fight or flight stress response. Try creating a specific time to relax each day is a good idea. Also one advantage to using deep breathing for stress relief is that you can do it anywhere. Also as you breathe out, try relaxing a certain muscle groups. Move through the different areas of your body until you’re feeling calm.

2 – Focus on the NOW moment. 

When you’re stressed, you’re probably living in the future or the past. You’re worried about what to do next or regretful about something you’ve already done. To get some stress relief, instead try focusing on what you’re doing right now. If you’re walking, feel the sensation of your legs moving. If you’re eating, focus on the taste and the sensation of the food. No matter what you are doing – focus on the NOW moment!

3 – Look At The Situation Differently.

So you’re running late and stuck in terrible traffic or you have missed the train. Getting worked up is a natural reaction, but it won’t help you at all. Rather than swearing, cursing or crying – see things in a different circumstance. Look at time as an opportunity – a chance for you to be alone for yourself . 

4 – Don’t Let Your Problems Grow Bigger Than They Need To Be.

Next time you’re feeling stressed out, don’t let the stress grow instead think of the things for which you are grateful. It can be a effective method for stress relief.

I know these are my most important go to stress relief tips particularly if I am going through chronic illness flare ups or particularly stressful circumstances along my journey of life.

I would love to know what you think and if you have any tips that help calm your stress levels, please share.

Christmas Brings Out My Mother’s Love & I Know I Am OK. I will always be ok.

It’s almost christmas, and there is lots of excitement around but as I sit here watching my christmas tree lights flickering,I find myself thinking of my mother who has now passed.

I am wondering how she would look,if she was alive now. I am thinking about how she held it together the way she did, way back when. It seemed no matter how life got out of control, she always puts it back the way it should be for me as a child. It’s always been a mystery, how she was so strong in a life of so much mess but I guess that was her and I guess in a way I have some of that strength….well I held a lot of shit deep down in my guts for so long and it’s just now as I am releasing and purging as I am recovering from multiple chronic illnesses and what has always held me back that, that’s probably what my mother was doing long, long ago. Yes, she stumbled and fell but seriously there is nothing stronger than my mother’s love because she used the glue of another era to make me have a life to smile through and give me the courage and bravery to step out into the world now, naked and free to walk and talk my vulnerabilities to awaken the world to my mission, message and life’s purpose.

Now this glue, I talk of, it is not a recipe, nor is it that sticky stuff used in art and craft. This is a special bond that mothers use to keep life from falling apart. It’s created a way that i knew and still know she is always there listening – she may not have been literally there sometimes in younger years and now I know she isn’t but it oh so feels like she is and I know that everything is and will always be okay. It’s that special bonding hug on a bad day, it’s her look that she always gave if I was scared or fearful that would take the tears and fears away. She made sacrifices because she always knew, I could do anything at all but that bonding glue of such love still holds tight because I think she knows without it I wouldn’t make it through, even now.

Mum, if you’re still awake up there, probably sitting in your favourite chair with your Chivas Regal and  Marlboro cigarettes I am letting you know that our glue is bonded strong and I have not given up and I will never give up – because my purpose in life has only just awoken. I am strong because of my story and I am strong because of you and next time you will see me standing on top of the mountain of life shining light from the darkness adding a bonded glue for those that need a helping hand and a warm heart. Yes, mum I know you are smiling at me, because yes that bonding glue has held tight keeping me safe on life’s wandered scary tightrope. 

If you are perhaps not as excited about Christmas this year, let me ask you to feel my outstretched arm and hand giving you strength, giving you hope this festive season.
