3 PRACTICES THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE

Today I want to share with you, 3 practices that have literally changed my life! The practices are so simple, yet so life changing and amazing. And if you have never tried them before, you will have so much fun trying it out and a whole new world will open up for you.

 

So, let’s get into these amazing practices!

Gratitude

The first one you will most likely be familiar with if you have followed me for just a little while, and that is: showing and feeling gratitude. I first learned about this when I read the book ‘The Secret‘* (affiliate link) for the first time back in 2012 (where I magically saw the book in a bookstore in London and bought it right away – that book has impacted my life in such a positive way, I can not recommend it enough!). Here I was introduced to the concept of showing gratitude for the things you have in your life. I learned about how I was not going to be able to get ‘more’ (things, love, money etc.) in my life, if I didn’t start to appreciate and be grateful for what I already had.

In the book there is a 30 day practice where you get a new task everyday, and one of the tasks was to write down 3 things every single day that you were grateful for. I started doing this practice, and in the beginning I had such a had time thinking about things to write, because I thought it needed to be something big, but when I learned that there are SO many things to be grateful for, then my lists became longer and longer!

You can literally be grateful for everything in your life: the air you breathe, the food you eat, the water you drink, buying another a present, having a home, having a job etc. Once you start paying attention to all the wonderful things you already have in your life, an abundance of things will come to you. Like attract like, and if you are grateful and show gratitude, you will only get more to be grateful for. On the other hand, if you focus on all the things you ‘lack’ in your life, then there won’t come more good things in your life.

Ps, if you think I’m just crazy, then just try google it, and you’ll quickly find out that some of the greatest people on this planet (Oprah for example) practice and believe in this as well.

 

Visualising & Manifesting

Visualisation is the act of imagining something which you do not have yet, and really feeling as if you already have it. Our minds are so amazing, they can imagine things which are not there yet, and we can actually feel the joy, love or whatever we want to feel without having the things which we think will bring us this emotion. The practice of visualisation is about becoming clear about what you want in life, and for this practice you can make a list (*I will cover this in the next point), or you can make a vision board.

A vision board is where you have a blank piece of paper (or you can make it on your computer), and then you find a lot of pictures, words etc. that symbolises what you want in life, and how you want to feel. That could be people smiling, pictures of the places you want to travel to, your dream apartment, words like ‘love’, ‘happiness’ etc. – exactly what YOU want in life. Then you make a nice collage, and then you look at this collage every single day and feel how it would feel to have these things in your life. Such a simple, yet very powerful practice.

I have made several vision boards over the years, and it is amazing to look back at them and see the things which have ‘come true’, or realise that your dreams might have completely changed – then you just make a new vision board which is more in alignment with your present needs, wants and desires.

 

Script Writing

Script writing is almost the same as vision boards, except this is about writing the things you want in life, rather than making a visual collage. A script is where you write – in present tense – what you want.

Let me explain that. You shall not write: “I want to find the love of my life”, because then you send out a signal that it is something you are still searching for, and then you will stay in the process of searching. Instead, you need to write:
“I have found the love of my life and we tell each other every single day how much we love each other”. So, you write as if you already have it. And really feel when you write and read it.

You can change your script as often as you like. Just remember to look at it often, and read it and really feel as if you already have it.

I cannot tell you the amount of things I have written down on a piece of paper that have come true in my life – just some examples; my boyfriend, our apartment, some of my friends, winning the Danish championsship in showdance with my dancing team, travelling to lots of countries, my job etc.

 

Some people might say that “well, that is not because of some sort of magic that these things happened to you, that is just you who made it happen“, and that might be true – but I like to believe in everyday magic, and really – does it matter? As long as it works. And seriously, no harm can happen with these practices.

 

At least I know that my life has become more fun, more filled with joy, happiness, love and everyday magic after having found these practices and incorporated them into my life – and my hope with this post is that you might discover something new which can change your life for the better as well.

 

Have you heard about these practices before? Do you practice them yourself? Or, is it the first time you learn about them? – and in that case, is it something you want to start practicing?

BOOK RECOMMENDATION – THE FOUR AGREEMENTS

A little while ago I read the book “The Four Agreements*” by Don Miguel Ruiz, and wauw. I’ve had this book on my reading list for such a long time, and it is such a light an easy read so I don’t know why I’ve waited so long, but I do believe in timing, and it was the perfect time to read it, it really got me.

 

Don Miguel Ruiz writes about 4 fundamental life lessons in his book “The Four Agreements”, which in all its simplicity are some very simple life lessons, yet this is something we tend to forget about all the time. But, getting reminded of these things and seeing them in such a simple way really makes a difference. It lights you up and makes you feel good, and really shows you how you can change your own world by changing your perception about life.

I don’t want to give away too much, or say what these life lessons are, because I do believe there was something very special about reading the book and seeing these for yourself, and I don’t want to give that away. But, I will give you a little inspirering quote from the book:

 

“The word is pure magic – the most powerful gift we have as humans – and we use it against ourselves”

 

All I can say is that I definitely recommend this book. It is beautiful and so full of wisdom which we could all benefit from becoming aware of and knowing (and using).

 

Have you read the book? What did you think about it? If you have any other book recommendations, please let me know and I’ll add it to my never-ending-reading-list!

MY FAVOURITE PODCASTS ABOUT HEALTH AND SPIRITUALITY

Det er noget tid siden jeg har delt mine yndlings podcast, og dengang var det mere rent generelt. Nu har jeg fundet nogle nye favoritter, og da jeg for tiden er all-in-for sundhed, holisme og spiritualitet, så tænkte jeg at det kunne være interessant at dele mine yndlings podcast indenfor denne genre med jer.

Selv skal jeg på arbejde hele weekenden, men det kan være at du har helt fri og kunne bruge et godt og inspirerende podcast til en god gå tur ude i naturen.

Især er der fokus på sundhed, men der kommer også emner som parforhold, selvudvikling og meget mere.

Jeg er begyndt at være meget fascineret af Ayurveda (læs lidt mere om det her), og i dette podcast finder man information og hverdagstips til hvordan man kan implementere ayurvedaen i sin egen hverdag.

English:

It’s been a while since I last shared my favourite podcasts, and at that time it was more podcasts in general.

And it’s perfect here for the weekend! I have to work all weekend, but you might have a free weekend and could use a good and inspirational podcast to listen to while going for a walk outside in nature.

This is an old favourite, which I’ve already shared several times on the blog. But, if you do not know about it, Melissa Ambrosini interviews a lot of different people and you get so much new knowledge. There is especially focus on health, but it also touches upon subjects such as relationships, self development and much more.

This is a new favourite of mine. The podcast is made by Connie Chapman (which btw has the most lovely Instagram account!). Connie’s voice is so soothing and calm, and this podcast has focus on health, but also a lot of spirituality – which I’m loving these days.
