Z for Zest. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Zest Enthusiasm, Energy, Liveliness, Gusto provides the Zest for Life. Doesn’t that make you come alive. Just those words give me a boost of happiness and make me want to do a little jig. I love the word Zest as it feels so fresh, full of juiciness, life, vibrancy, colour just as our lives should […]

Y for Yourself First. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Yourself First Put your oxygen mask on first before trying to help anyone else with theirs During the safety demonstration before any flight this is what you are told in the event of an emergency and the oxygen masks are needed. Why do you think we need to get ours on first before helping our […]

X for Xtraordinary. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Xtraordinary Why fit in when you were born to stand out. No one is ordinary. We are all beyond what is normal. So where did this desire to fit in, be accepted by others by being like them come from? In N for Needs we see that Love & Connection is a big need that […]

W for Worthy. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Worthy We are worthy of a life of abundance in all areas. We deserve everything we could wish for. So many of us really don’t feel we are worthy of anything. Give us praise and we shun it. Give us a compliment and we are embarrassed by it. Where does this feeling of unworthiness come […]

V for Values. the A to Z of Conscious Living

Values What Value to you put on yourself, your feelings, your loved ones, your things? Our values are the things that are most important to us. The things that we will always give priority to in our lives over other things, and while we may not consciously know what our values are, we can find […]

U for Unicorn. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Unicorn Someone told me I was delusional. I almost fell off my Unicorn. That quote always makes me smile. I love the idea and fantasy of living out my dreams that others would say are unrealistic. Well, where would we be today if it wasn’t for many others before us having ‘unrealistic’ dreams like equal […]

T for Trust. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Trust Trust in yourself. Trust in the Universe. Trust that all will be ok in the end, and if it’s not ok then it’s not the end. Now you know you are not who you think you are you can begin to build a relationship with the real you. In the absence of your script […]

S for Script. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Script Who are we when we are not ourselves? We come into this world with just the fear of falling and loud noises. Everything else we learn. We are born, get given a name and from that moment on the script of that character with that name starts to develop. Each day we are told […]

R for Rewards. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Rewards What are the rewards for conscious living? I mean, why bother? Sometimes I feel that living in the land of the sub-conscious is a much easier life. Society tells you what to do, how to think, when and how to react to situations and you can be much more accepted by those around you […]

Q for Quiet and Questions. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Quiet & Questions When we are quiet enough and still enough for long enough, we hear the answers. Wouldn’t it be fabulous to have someone to always go to and ask about anything and everything we want to, and at any time of the day? Questions like “what is the lesson I need to learn […]

P for Pearls. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Pearls You will find more pearls when you go pearl diving. Similarly you will find more trouble when you go looking for that too. It’s a simple case of what we set our radar on to search out in our everyday life. If we want to see the best in people we will see it, […]

O for Ok and Not Ok. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Ok & Not Ok It’s ok to be ok, and it’s ok to be not ok. We seem to have created a society where it’s not ok to be not ok. Not every day we live is going to be great even when living consciously. Some days are going to be challenging beyond words and […]

N for Needs. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Needs We all have similar needs yet how we meet those needs differs significantly. There are a few models that look at how we as humans progress through meeting our needs, a popular one being Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs which is well documented (google it to find out more). However, the one I tend to […]

M for Me to We. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Me to We The greatest experience of life is as a result of moving our focus from ‘Me’ to the ‘We’. ‘Me to We’ is another great saying by Richard Wilkins, founder of Broadband Consciousness, and simply means that when we do what we do for the greater good of others, we get the best […]

L for Let It Go. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Let It Go L is also for Love, however having spoken about love in H for Heart and Humpty, I took the opportunity to have L for Let It Go. ‘Let it go’ was my mantra quite a few years ago now as I started my journey to conscious living. Quite simply it served me […]

K for Kindness. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Kindness “Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible” The Dalai Lama When living half asleep, from the pre-programmed patterns of our sub-conscious, it is all too easy to slip into the culture all too prevalent in our society which is to put others down in order that we may feel better about ourselves. There […]

J for Joy. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Joy Pure joy. The ultimate feel good feeling for me, and one which I know I cannot reach unless I am wide awake and living life consciously. In fact the higher my consciousness, the higher the joy I am able to feel. When I talk about a higher consciousness I am referring to the fact […]

I for Identity. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Identity We have many Identities, the question is, are they ones we would choose to have? Two descriptions of ‘identity’ in the dictionary are “the condition of being oneself and not another” and “character as to who a person is”. We take on our identities at an early age, some of which serve us well […]

H for Heart. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Heart (and Humpty) Our heart works in the background keeping us alive. It’s not something we have to think about, in fact if we had to keep ourselves alive consciously, we wouldn’t last very long on this earth. There are many things our body does so incredibly well that we often take it for granted. […]

G for Gratitude. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Gratitude When you want to shift your state to a more positive one, gratitude is the best state shifter I know. When I am having those days with my mind firmly stuck in the pits and I can’t seem to easily ‘choose’ a better state, feeling thankful for all around me always makes a shift. […]

F for Feelings. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Feelings Our only real goal in life is to feel good and feel proud of ourselves. Often we think of goals as more material things, like a new home or car, or maybe a new job or promotion. Often our goals are focused on other areas of our life like relationships or our personal appearance […]

E for Energy. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Energy We are all just energy. Vibrating at different frequencies we are simply a mass of energy and together we create all that is. Quantum Physics has now proved that while we are made up of atoms, those atoms are in themselves just pure energy. So each one of us is a mass of energy […]

D for Dare. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Dare Dare to believe you are not who you think you are Do you think you know yourself?  In the first blog A for Awaken, we touched on the concept that for most of the time when we are not really fully awake and living consciously then we are half asleep and living from our […]

C for Choosing. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Choosing (and Cosmic Google) When we think we have nothing, we always have choice. The question I ask myself a lot these days is “What would I choose?”. This is a question that was asked of me the very first time I met the founders of ‘Broadband Consciousness’, Richard Wilkins and Liz Ivory. A question […]

B for Being. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Being  (and Broadband Consciousness) We are human beings, not human doings. When I first read that a while back now, I had to stop and think about what it meant. I kind of got that as humans we are ‘beings’, and that we are always ‘doing’, but it was to take some time before it […]

A for Awaken. The A to Z of Conscious Living

Awaken. Living consciously is living in the state of being awake. Not just awake as in not in bed asleep, I mean really awake and consciously aware of what’s around you, your behaviour, your thinking, your reactions and your daily choices.  That may sound obvious yet most of us go about our daily life in […]
