5 Powerful Habits for Dealing with Failure

5 Powerful Habits for Dealing with Failure

Failures are an essential part of our lives. Ask anyone who has ever tried to achieve something in their life, from sports and art to business and personal relationships.
Even if you carefully plan your journey to success and minimize the chances of failure, sometimes things will inevitably go wrong. And when this happens, it’s essential to know how to respond adequately to avoid falling into self-doubt and rebuild your damaged self-esteem.
Like many others before you, if you fail often enough, you may begin to question whether you really have what it takes to succeed. If this sounds like something that is affecting you personally right now, read on because I have some helpful tips for combating the self-doubt that comes with any failure, no matter how tiny…

Accept your failures and learn from them.

The first step to learning from failure is admitting you made a mistake. Accepting mistakes doesn’t just mean admitting them and moving on. It also means using what you learn as a source of inspiration for future success, not letting it consume you and undermine your efforts.
It is important to remember that even the biggest failures can teach you valuable lessons about yourself, but only if you make the most of the experience. Allowing mistakes to define you can lead to a gloomy outlook on life, so instead, embrace these failures and use them to fuel your motivation for future successes.

Take failure as a stepping stone to success.

Take failure as a stepping stone to success.

If you want to succeed, you will inevitably go through failures along the way. And if you want to achieve anything in this world, you’re going to need a lot of failures. So embrace the idea that failure is a necessary step on the road to success, and don’t let it stop you from moving onward and upward. It’s easy to feel regret that something didn’t work out and feel like just giving up on it. But if you do decide to try again and have a little more patience, you’ll be in a better position for your next attempt. The truth is, most people never achieve their goals because they give up too soon after failing once or twice.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help.

Failure is a part of life so that you will fail from time to time. But don’t let setbacks stop you from achieving your dreams. Sometimes the best thing you can do is ask for help. Call a friend, but not to complain and grumble – tell him about your dreams and ask for advice. If you’re struggling with something, especially if it’s an important decision that could have a significant impact on your life, talk to someone you trust: a friend, family member, or professional mentor.
Not only will they be able to provide you with support and guidance, but they may also be able to offer some new perspective on the situation. Also, there’s nothing wrong with asking for help when you need it!

Shed old habits and build new ones

Take some time to think about the things that are working for you in your life and try to determine what is holding you back and what is inspiring you in your day. It could be the late getting up or the constant blackness. It could be cigarettes or another lousy habit; maybe you eat more than you would like to admit, even to yourself… Analyze everything. And once you feel which habit is a brake for you and which could help you jump higher – act! Make a program of easy steps to follow in your daily life. For example, you want to learn to get up early. Good! It’s easy… but it takes a little persistence. Instead of winding your watch to get up every day at 5 am – Agree with yourself to get up 20 minutes earlier every week. If today you get up at 8, next week set your alarm for 7:40; the following week, let it be 7:20. So step by step, after a month, you will find that 6:15 may be the perfect time to wake up full of energy and passion.

Shed old habits and build new ones

One of the ways to build new habits that will help you in the future is by learning from your mistakes. If a previous failure taught you something valuable about yourself, try to incorporate that knowledge into your daily life. For example, if you have a habit of skipping meals at home because it is difficult for you to cook or buy the products in time, try to prepare an easy feast – make yourself a salad or cook something easy with simple ingredients so that it does not require a lot of cooking time .

Set short-term goals for success and stick to them

Many people start with big plans, start with the big basket… and that can be good, but it’s essential to break the big goal down into small, easy-to-do steps. And so, day after day, week after week, taking these small steps, you’ll suddenly imperceptibly find that you’re halfway there 🙂
When you have a certain goal, but it seems impossible to achieve, it can be tempting to give up and move on to something else. Do not do this! It’s essential to stay focused on short-term goals, the small steps that are within your control.
Think about the small victories you’ve already achieved, and make sure you keep those wins by targeting another short-term goal that will help you reach your big goal. For example, you want to learn a foreign language. Set a short-term goal, such as learning 10 words every day for two months. In this way, at the end of these two months, you will have learned 600 words. And this is already a solid base on which to start building your knowledge in this language.


Failure is a part of life, and it is important to know how to deal with it. The key to success is building an attitude that sees failure as a stepping stone to success. You must be willing to accept your failures and learn from them, not be afraid to ask for help, discard old habits so that you can build new ones and last but not least – set easy short-term goals that are part of your plan for great success. Thus, by following these 5 rules, you will be able to achieve much more in your life.

New Moon in Aquarius

❤️ New Moon in Aquarius! New Year of the White Metal Ox!

The new enters our lives more and more. The question is whether we will be in sync with it or not.

How to synchronize with the upcoming New Moon in Aquarius, which gives the beginning of the White Metal Ox year?

Here are the seven steps:

1. On 11.02.2021, wide open the windows of your home, ventilate well as a symbol of throwing away the old and the stale energy. The next step is to light frankincense and work your home in a clockwise direction. If you do not have frankincense, you can use a bay leaf or incense sticks. That will purify and renew the energy and help you enter the new year fresh and renewed.

2. From the evening of 10 February for 24 hours, lighten your diet if possible and based on your health condition’s specifics. That will purify both your body and your thoughts. They are connected.

3. It is good to light 5 (preferably white) candles on 5 consecutive days. 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15.02

4. Voluntary sacrifice! What is that unnecessary something in yourself that you will metaphorically sacrifice? A quality that you know is time to break up with, that is not good for you. The one you should not wait for circumstances of your life to press you to release. It is good to decide by the dawn of 11/02/2021. Carefully meditate on it. And then just leave this something in the old year.

5. The new year begins on 12.02.2021; as you can see, these are mirrored numbers. That is a sign that a powerful energy portal is opening. This time is particularly great for unlimited and bold dreams! Use those during your meditation or before sleep.

6. The Metal Ox is a conservative being, so these next few days, don’t wear red; it will anger it. Also, avoid beef at the table. The Ox is a domesticated animal, so it is best to be home on the evening of 11.02

7. The Ox is revered as a sacred animal in India, Nepal, China, and it will reward anyone who’s patient, consistent, and persistent. Jupiter – the planet of luck and happiness, is the planet of Taurus. It is believed that Taurus brings happiness, luck, and fertility to the consistent and hardworking.

I wish you an inspired New Beginning!

Dreams come true!

Renewal and Expansion!

And let the Light lead us on the way!

Two Bad Bricks

❤️Two Bad Bricks

Ajahn Brahmavamso’s story of Two Bad Bricks from his book Who Ordered This Truckload Of Dung? is the inspirational story that human relationships should be built on. If you haven’t read this book, the least you can do will be to read the story here:

Two Bad Bricks

“After we purchased the land for our monastery in 1983 we were broke. We were in debt. There were no buildings on the land, not even a shed. Those first few weeks we slept not on beds but on old doors we had bought cheaply from the salvage yard; we raised them on bricks at each corner to lift them off the ground. (There were no mattresses, of course — we were forest monks.)

“The abbot had the best door, the flat one. My door was ribbed with a sizeable hole in the center where the doorknob would have been. I joked that now I wouldn’t need to get out of bed to go to the toilet! The cold truth was, however, that the wind would come up through that hole. I didn’t sleep much those nights.

“We were poor monks who needed buildings. We couldn’t afford to employ a builder — the materials were expensive enough. So I had to learn how to build: how to prepare the foundations, lay concrete and bricks, erect the roof, put in the plumbing — the whole lot. I had been a theoretical physicist and high-school teacher in lay life, not used to working with my hands. After a few years, I became quite skilled at building, even calling my crew the BBC (“Buddhist Building Company”). But when I started it was very difficult.

“It may look easy to lay a brick: a dollop of mortar underneath, a little tap here, a little tap there. But when I began laying bricks, I’d tap one corner down to make it level and another corner would go up. So I’d tap that corner down then the brick would move out of line. After I’d nudged it back into line, the first corner would be too high again. Hey, you try it!

“Being a monk, I had the patience and as much time as I needed. I made sure every single brick was perfect, no matter how long it took. Eventually, I completed my first brick wall and stood back to admire it. It was only then that I noticed— oh no! — I’d missed two bricks. All the other bricks were nicely in line, but these two were inclined at an angle. They looked terrible. They spoiled the whole wall. They ruined it.

“By then, the cement mortar was too hard for the bricks to be taken out, so I asked the abbot if I could knock the wall down and start over again — or, even better, perhaps blow it up. I’d made a mess of it and I was very embarrassed. The abbot said no, the wall had to stay.

“When I showed our first visitors around our fledgling monastery, I always tried to avoid taking them past my brick wall. I hated anyone seeing it. Then one day, some three or four months after I finished it, I was walking with a visitor and he saw the wall.

You can get the book here:

” ‘That’s a nice wall,’ he casually remarked.

” ‘Sir,’ I replied in surprise, ‘have you left your glasses in your car? Are you visually impaired? Can’t you see those two bad bricks which spoil the whole wall?’

What he said next changed my whole view of that wall, of myself, and of many other aspects of life.

He said, “Yes. I can see those two bad bricks. But I can see the 998 good bricks as well.’

“I was stunned. For the first time in over three months, I could see other bricks in that wall apart from the two mistakes. Above, below, to the left, and to the right of the bad bricks were good bricks, perfect bricks. Moreover, the perfect bricks were many, many more than the two bad bricks. Before, my eyes would focus exclusively on my two mistakes; I was blind to everything else. That was why I couldn’t bear looking at that wall, or having others see it. That was why I wanted to destroy it. Now that I could see the good bricks, the wall didn’t look so bad after all. It was, as the visitor had said, ‘a nice brick wall.’ It’s still there now, twenty years later, but I’ve forgotten exactly where those bad bricks are. I literally cannot see those mistakes anymore.

“How many people end a relationship or get divorced because all they can see in their partner are ‘two bad bricks’? How many of us become depressed or even contemplate suicide, because all we can see in ourselves are ‘two bad bricks.’ In truth, there are many, many more good bricks, perfect bricks — above, below, to the left, and to the right of the faults — but at times we just can’t see them. Instead, every time we look our eyes focuses exclusively on the mistakes. The mistakes are all we see, they’re all we think are there and so we want to destroy them. And sometimes, sadly, we do destroy a ‘very nice wall.’

“We’ve all got our two bad bricks, but the perfect bricks in each one of us are much, much more than the mistakes. Once we see this, things aren’t so bad. Not only can we live at peace with ourselves, inclusive of our faults, but we can also enjoy living with a partner. This is bad news for divorce lawyers, but good news for you.

“I have told this anecdote many times. After one occasion, a builder came up to me and told me a professional secret. ‘We builders always make mistakes,’ he said, ‘But we tell our clients that it is “an original feature” with no other house in the neighborhood like it. And then we charge them a couple of thousand dollars extra!’

“So the ‘unique features’ in your house probably started out as mistakes. In the same way, what you might take to be mistakes in yourself, in your partner, or in general, can become ‘unique features,’ enriching your time here — once you stop focusing on them exclusively.”

You can get the book here:


Ajahn Brahm has been a monk for more than 30 years. He is now a revered spiritual guide and abbot of one of the largest Buddhist monasteries in the southern hemisphere. On 29 Oct 2006, the Bangkok Post wrote this about him: “His clerical name is Phra Brahmavamso. His official Buddhist title in the Thai ecclesiastical hierarchy is Phra Visutisangvornthera. But the UK-born monk is known internationally as Ajahn Brahm. And he likes it that way – short and simple. He likes his teachings to be that way too. Ajahn Brahm’s accessible and practical teachings, delivered with a humorous touch, have won him an international following. Ordained for 32 years and trained under the late meditation master and forest monk Ajahn Chah, he is now abbot of the Bodhinyana Monastery in Australia.”

7 things to get rid from your life

❤️ 7 things to get rid from your life

Every change starts from the inside out.

The world is changing because you are changing. Not the other way around. YES! We are moving forward, but it is important to take our new selves forward. And for our new self, it’s essential to get rid of these 7 things. They would be a pointless burden on the road.

Here are 7 things to get rid from your life:

1. Criticism of yourself and others

It’s time to revise this habit, which only drains your energy. It doesn’t matter if you criticize mentally or aloud. Criticism is only needed for discovering and analyzing what you need to keep working on. It is a constructive critique. BUT! When it becomes a relentless river of resentment, denial, rejection, hatred, it becomes hidden aggression towards you and others. Aggression attracts more aggression, and without realizing it, you enter into a vicious circle. Everything has its positive and its not so positive sides. Learn to accept both, to seek and discover the positive in you and things.

2. Living in the past

You will not find anything new there. When you live in the past, you bring it into the present and make it your current attraction point. It is how you attract more of the same. And then you wonder why you attract the same relationships, situations, and things again. Throw away old wounds and pain. Take off your old insults and fears. Put on faith, goodwill. And go ahead. Don’t let the past steal your present.

3. Toxic relationships

These are one-way relationships. Relationships in which energy moves only from one side to the other, and there is no exchange. Only you give, save, listen, comfort, help. These are relationships that steal your energy and mood. It’s time to change. Someone only looks for you when they need something. And do you need this type of communication?

Don’t pretend to be a good person with toxic people. If you are sympathetic to them, you become toxic to yourself.

4. Excessive thinking

It is the art of creating problems that do not exist. Suppose you are the type of person who tends to think the same thing over and over again like a merry-go-round. You spend more time in your mind than in reality. It is merely the inertia of the mind. It’s time to release the momentum that steals from your present. This way, you give more importance to things that do not really deserve your concern. Just say to yourself: STOP! And return your awareness to the present. This is only a matter of a little practice. The moment you take your attention out of the thought carousel and infuse it into the present reality, and you are ready. You will feel how you got out of the grip of the mental carousel. Then persevere with this practice for a while. You will now feel how nice it is to regain the joy of life.

5. Fear of change

How do you know that what you are accustomed to or have is better than what is coming? The only sure thing in life is change. Learning to accept change is one of the essential lessons of modern times. Of course, any change is associated with leaving the comfort zone. But the moment you allow the change, you realize that it has expanded your comfort zone. It has made you more flexible and adaptable. After all, life itself is an endless journey, learning, and expansion, right? And the more you resist change and try to hide in safety, the more painful it becomes. With each change, you become more conscious, knowledgeable, skilled, and wise. Change brings expansion. Trust the change.

6. To underestimate yourself

Stop doing it. Stop underestimating yourself. You keep thinking that others are more than you. And you are inferior to them. Too often, I meet capable and talented people who, however, underestimate themselves so much that they place a restrictive barrier to their future development. And only because they do not believe in themselves. They are too critical of themselves and thus underestimate their capabilities and skills. If you have such a tendency, it’s time to stop sabotaging yourself. How? Observe how you think of yourself. You often put labels in your thoughts and characterize yourself with not very pleasant characteristics. How to stop underestimating yourself? By taking care of your confidence and self-esteem.

It is essential to realize and accept that mistakes are part of you growing up.

And they don’t define you as incompetent, silly, or bad. Start noticing and paying attention to your good qualities. And they are so many. Notice and enjoy the small successes and victories. You managed not to get angry, and you kept your composure in a critical situation. You have shown empathy and supported someone in need. You have kept your dignity despite the difficulty and so forth. The examples can be countless. The point is to notice them, to reflect on them. Everyone has good and not so good qualities. Whichever you choose to focus on is up to you.

❤️The best things in life
Let’s remember what some of the best things in life are. Maybe then we will realize that our days are not so

7. Trying to please everyone.

You don’t need it at all, because you also don’t like everyone. But the desire to please everyone has stolen so much from the beauty of life. Any attempt to please someone just to be approved by them takes you away from yourself. In order to please everyone, you betray and lose yourself. And even if you make everyone like you, it still won’t be an indicator of your worth. And you, your value, you determine it yourself with your attitude towards you.

Do you like yourself is the important question?

Do you approve of the path you are taking? Are you satisfied with the choices you make? And the strange paradox is that the less you depend on others’ opinions about you, the more they start to like you. You are important. Try to please yourself because you will share your whole life with you. The others come and go. But you will stay with you.

Get rid of these 7 things, and you will feel that you are regaining your life and the joy of life.

Sometimes, it is important to get rid of the old unnecessary burden in order to move forward. Change starts from the inside out. And every little step along the way is worth it because this is the way to you.

Dr. Hinohara’s advice for longevity and fulfilling life:

Dr. Shigeaki Hinohara is one of those to whom Japan is indebted for its many centenarians. He himself was a worthy example with his incredibly active life – after turning 75, he published over 150 books, including the bestseller “Live Long, Live Well“, distributed in 1.2 million copies. After celebrating his 100th birthday, Dr. Hinohara continues to treat people and give lectures. His life remains dedicated to the good cause – to guide and advise people on achieving health and longevity. In July 2017, the Japanese doctor left this world at the age of 105.

One does not get energy from food and sleep but from joy.

Do you remember how in childhood, if you had fun, you forgot to eat and did not need sleep? It’s the same for adults. You should not plague your body with strict rules of eating and sleeping.

energy from food People of all races, nationalities, and genders can live long. They have only one thing in common – there is not a single fat person among the long-lived. For example, at breakfast, I drink coffee or milk, maybe orange juice with a spoonful of olive oil – it is good for the skin and arteries. At lunch – milk with biscuits, or nothing if I’m too busy. When I work, I don’t feel hungry at all. My dinner – vegetables, some fish and rice. Twice a week, I eat 100 g of lean meat. So you should not get all your energy from food but also from joy and happiness!

❤️ 10 inspiring thoughts on the meaning of happiness

Happiness is the most important engine in our lives, but we often do not understand what it is or where we can find it. We try different scenarios, hoping that we will somehow stumble upon happiness, but we are still aware of how deceptive the search can be.
The truth is that sometimes tricky questions have really simple answers. This probably is the case with happiness.

These 10 inspiring thoughts will give you great insights into what makes people happy.
  1. Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.” Jim Rohn
    We tend to see happiness as a goal we need to achieve somewhere in the future, not as something we can achieve right now and right here. This way of thinking actually prevents us from finding happiness in the present, when the present offers us opportunities for it.

  1. There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved. George Sand
    People seek happiness in many different ways, but everyone would agree that the surest way to find happiness is to cultivate love. Sharing and receiving love makes us happy – it’s that simple.

  1. Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. Albert Schweizer

Our modern society accepts that happiness is something that only comes after we have achieved success. Successful people know that happiness precedes success. Enjoying your work and finding joy and happiness in work make us successful.

  1. Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort. Franklin D. Roosevelt
    Happiness is not really about reaching a specific goal or destination but rather about enjoying the ride. Every new step towards our goal should make us happy and fulfilled. This type of happiness is not about excitement but about peace. It is stable and lasting happiness.

  1. Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. – Mahatma Gandhi
    Lasting happiness is not ecstatic. It is like the feeling of peace and harmony that extends to our thoughts and actions. This is possible when our actions and thoughts correspond to the deepest desires of our hearts.

  1. It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness. Charles Spurgeon
    Happiness is rarely about what we have or what we can produce. It is more important that we have what we have. True happiness comes from knowing how to see everything in bright, positive light and enjoying all the things that happen to us.

  1. Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. It means that you’ve decided to look beyond imperfections. Gerard Way
    We always strive for perfection and delude ourselves that happiness can only come from perfection. As a result, we lack happiness entirely. When we learn to see and accept imperfect things as they are, we attain true happiness.

  1. A smile is happiness you’ll find right under your nose. Tom Wilson
    Happiness can be associated with outstanding achievements, but it can also be related to simple things. Sometimes all it takes to feel happy is to remind ourselves to smile and meet the world with optimism and joy. In this way, we discover that happiness has always been waiting for us.

  1. Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions. The Dalai Lama
    Believing that happiness is something that awaits for us to find it somewhere in the distant future is a distorted way of thinking about life. Happiness is a product of our actions, decisions, and thoughts. It does not come to us from outside. It grows in us.

  1. Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more. H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
    Selfish people never know happiness. They confuse happiness with a fleeting sense of satisfaction that, instead of leaving them satisfied, makes them victims of new desires. Truly happy people know how to escape this trap by giving more to others instead of always thinking for themselves.

no one owes you anything

❤️ A Gift for My Daughter – No one owes you anything

The Christmas letter you have to reread every year

It’s Christmas and I have the usual problem of deciding what to give you. I know you might enjoy many things — books, games, clothes.

But I’m very selfish. I want to give you something that will stay with you for more than a few months or years. I want to give you a gift that might remind you of me every Christmas.

If I could give you just one thing, I’d want it to be a simple truth that took me many years to learn. If you learn it now, it may enrich your life in hundreds of ways. And it may prevent you from facing many problems that have hurt people who have never learned it.

The truth is simply this:

No one owes you anything.


How could such a simple statement be important? It may not seem so, but understanding it can bless your entire life.


No one owes you anything.

It means that no one else is living for you, my child. Because no one is you. Each person is living for himself; his own happiness is all he can ever personally feel.

When you realize that no one owes you happiness or anything else, you’ll be freed from expecting what isn’t likely to be.

It means no one has to love you. If someone loves you, it’s because there’s something special about you that gives him happiness. Find out what that something special is and try to make it stronger in you, so that you’ll be loved even more.

When people do things for you, it’s because they want to — because you, in some way, give them something meaningful that makes them want to please you, not because anyone owes you anything.

No one has to like you. If your friends want to be with you, it’s not out of duty. Find out what makes others happy so they’ll want to be near you.

No one has to respect you. Some people may even be unkind to you. But once you realize that people don’t have to be good to you, and may not be good to you, you’ll learn to avoid those who would harm you. For you don’t owe them anything either.

Living your Life
No one owes you anything.

You owe it to yourself to be the best person possible. Because if you are, others will want to be with you, want to provide you with the things you want in exchange for what you’re giving to them.

Some people will choose not to be with you for reasons that have nothing to do with you. When that happens, look elsewhere for the relationships you want. Don’t make someone else’s problem your problem.

Once you learn that you must earn the love and respect of others, you’ll never expect the impossible and you won’t be disappointed. Others don’t have to share their property with you, nor their feelings or thoughts.

If they do, it’s because you’ve earned these things. And you have every reason to be proud of the love you receive, your friends’ respect, the property you’ve earned. But don’t ever take them for granted. If you do, you could lose them. They’re not yours by right; you must always earn them.

My Experience

A great burden was lifted from my shoulders the day I realized that no one owes me anything. For so long as I’d thought there were things I was entitled to, I’d been wearing myself out — physically and emotionally — trying to collect them.

No one owes me moral conduct, respect, friendship, love, courtesy, or intelligence. And once I recognized that, all my relationships became far more satisfying. I’ve focused on being with people who want to do the things I want them to do.

That understanding has served me well with friends, business associates, lovers, sales prospects, and strangers. It constantly reminds me that I can get what I want only if I can enter the other person’s world. I must try to understand how he thinks, what he believes to be important, what he wants. Only then can I appeal to someone in ways that will bring me what I want.

And only then can I tell whether I really want to be involved with someone. And I can save the important relationships for those with whom I have the most in common.

It’s not easy to sum up in a few words what has taken me years to learn. But maybe if you re-read this gift each Christmas, the meaning will become a little clearer every year.

I hope so, for I want more than anything else for you to understand this simple truth that can set you free: no one owes you anything.

❤️ How to cure every disease with the power of consciousness and thought – Master Peter Deunov

If people would concentrate their minds on a certain point,

they would melt what is there. The rock would melt from the energy radiated by the human brain. People, if they know how, can concentrate all sorrows and diseases by concentrating their thoughts.

In a healthy state, the body has some vibrations.

Different diseases have different vibrations, but each disease speaks of reduced vibrations. The temperature must rise. This is done by uttering special thoughts and formulas, which a person, by uttering and bringing into his body, changes the vibrations. This is achieved by looking at beautiful paintings, landscapes. The starry sky can also serve as a cure.

Every word has a certain power.

If you focus on a word, your brain will connect with the power that is invested in it, and you will experience encouragement or fatigue according to the nature of the word. Some words, once told, cannot be said a second time. Why? They have a detrimental effect on the human brain. For example, if you say the words several times: I will get sick, a person will experience their bad effect on his body, and it will not take long – he may get sick. Conversely, if a person with tuberculosis repeats the words several times a day: I will recover, he will really recover.

One can heal through thought.

The stronger and more focused a person’s thoughts are, the easier it is to cure a certain disease. It is enough to say one word to heal. Some words work magic on a person. He must also know when to say the word. Everything must happen in its place and time.

Diseases are due to the accumulation of foreign substances, but through thought and will, a person can throw them out of his body and heal. The more sublime the thought, the greater the possibilities.

Strong thought is the way to cure every disease

The Kabbalist clarifies healing through thought as follows: thought can modify the vibrations of the human body. When a person becomes ill, these vibrations decrease; he can turn them from lower to higher with thought power. For example, colds are caused by a special type of germ that enters the nose, and if the vibrations are reduced, they find conditions to multiply. As they multiply, they irritate the mucous membrane of the nose. To eliminate this irritation, the nasal glands start to secrete abundant fluid, which expels them outside.

Human thought is connected with the vital electricity in life.

When thoughts are positive, they attract life forces to themselves; when thoughts are negative, these life forces dissipate, move away from the person, resulting in disease.

Mind, body and… health! How to heal with the power of the mind?

You can send your positive thoughts, your warm feelings, and wishes to someone sick with absolute faith, without any hesitation and doubt, and it will heal him. So, for a person to be healthy, you have to send a current of life to him. He will accept your thought and wish and feel better. In this respect, good friends are a good fence for health, and bad friends always bring disease and suffering.

When the will is involved, you can heal yourself.

With the power of your will, you can stay out in the cold for hours dressed in thin clothes without catching a cold. Mentally, one can make a warm, magnetic garment that will not tremble even in the coldest weather. Without such a garment, without the will’s participation, no matter how well dressed, one can still feel cold and catch a cold.

If someone gets rheumatism, he needs to grab it(rheumatism),

shake it a little and start talking to him,

that he had lost his way and need to left his body. If the rheumatism is embedded somewhere in the shoulder, he should direct it to his elbow, then to the fingers of his hand until he pulls it out. Diseases are treated not only with drugs but also with thought.

Thought can drive any disease out of the human body. The power of thought is powerful.

If any of you suffer from fever, let him put in the thought that he wants to heal, to dedicate his life to the realization of a good, great deed. Soon the thought begins to work in him, and the fever will pass. If the idea gives him a good result and he recovers, it shows that it worked. Every idea, every virtue that can be realized, first improves human health.

Hindus have the following way to heal their wounds: they collect prana from nature, and with the help of their thought, they direct this prana to the sick place, which heals in a maximum 20 minutes.

While you live in a world of contradictions, you need to know

that you are under the influence of the law of suggestion. No mortal, even immortal, is free from this law. With this in mind, you will always keep positive thoughts and feelings in your mind if you want to get rid of many painful conditions that are not yours. If you contact someone who suffers from a leg, you will experience the same pain.

There are days and hours when the suggestion has a detrimental effect on the person. Then neither he nor the others should suggest to him. In such moments, one must protect oneself from suggestion, just as the military encloses itself from its enemies with a fortress.

A tumor appeared in the abdomen or elsewhere.

Do not be afraid; this shows that excess energy has accumulated in one place, which must go somewhere outside. You will stimulate some of the healthy cells around to expel this energy; the thought will be strong, focused, and you will come to the natural state. If there is no other way out, surgery can eliminate the disease. But with strong, concentrated thought, a tumor can go away on its own. By suggestion, you can make even the healthiest person sick. By suggestion, you can get any tumor out of the body in 24 hours. You can get a tumor out in three days by putting the patient in magnetic sleep. By suggestion, any tumor can be removed; it all depends on the thought.

If you have a runny nose, think about health. Repeat the thought often: I am healthy,

and soon the cold will leave you. The healthy often think about the disease and are attracted to it. Do the exact opposite, think about health to attract and strengthen it, and eliminate the disease. The rational, the good, the great in man can fight the microbes that cause disease.

Apply good and positive words and thoughts as formulas,

with which you can influence yourself.

How are TB patients treated today? They put them on the bed so that they do not move left or right. They feed them in a special way and nothing more. No, let the patient go free. If he wants to lie down- let him lie down; if he wants to walk, leave him to walk, but

He has to say many times a day the words: I will be healed,

gradually increasing to 1000-2000 times a day. The first day to pronounce these words 100 times, the second 120 times, the third day 150 times, etc., until it reaches 1000 or 2000 times. That is how any disease, any discouragement, can be treated. This way, the heavy, dark atmosphere around the patient brightens up, becomes bright, pleasant, and he feels better and better day by day.

❤️ Do not miss the moments with your children, they will not happen again

Work will wait until you show your child the rainbow, but the rainbow will not wait for you to do your job –

Patricia Clafford

I was in a hurry.
I came rushing through our dining room in my best suit, focused on getting ready for an evening meeting. Gillian, my four-year-old, was dancing about to one of her favorite oldies, “Cool,” from West Side Story.
I was in a hurry, on the verge of being late. Yet a small voice inside of me said, Stop.
So I stopped. I looked at her. I reached out, grabbed her hand and spun her around. My seven-year-old, Caitlin, came into our orbit, and I grabbed her, too. The three of us did a wild jitterbug around the dining room and into the living room. We were laughing. We were spinning. Could the neighbors see the lunacy through the windows? It didn’t matter. The song ended with a dramatic flourish and our dance finished with it. I patted them on their bottoms and sent them to take their baths.
They went up the stairs, gasping for breath, their giggles bouncing off the walls. I went back to business. I was bent over, shoving papers into my briefcase, when I overheard my youngest say to her sister, “Caitlin, isn’t Mommy the bestest one?”
I froze. How close I had come to hurrying through life, missing that moment. My mind went to the awards and diplomas that covered the walls of my office. No award, no achievement I have ever earned can match this: Isn’t Mommy the bestest one?
My child said that at age four. I don’t expect her to say it at age 14. But at age 40, if she bends down over that pine box to say good-bye to the cast-off container of my soul, I want her to say it then.
Isn’t Mommy the bestest one?
It doesn’t fit on my resume. But I want it on my tombstone.
