Sure, I can go without beef or pork for a long while, it’s no big deal. But chicken? Now that’s a WHOLE other story!
And you tend to forget about fish, the way we’ve been conditioned; it’s almost as if they don’t count as an animal! Plus, I love a juicy king prawn!
Then you’ve got your dairy………milk drenched cereal, rich cheesecake, milky tea, stringy pizza topping and any kind of moist, tempting cake…….how an earth can I leave all that behind?!
I’ll tell you how!
Perhaps the biggest change that has occurred with me since my awakening, my deeper questioning of life, of the last 2 years and my commitment to continuous personal development, is my connection with nature.
When I try to explain this, some people don’t get it. I wouldn’t expect them to, simply because it’s something you have to experience yourself to understand.
One friend said to me that she already was a nature lover, so going through an awakening would make no difference to her. But you see, I have always been a nature lover too.
Alexi Panos was one of those people who just clicked with me instantly at the height of my spiritual awakening. I first saw her in The Abundance Factor Movie and was spellbound by her passion, energy, astoundingly honest story of immense highs, success (a top modelling career) and despairing lows (rape), and the way she now devotes her life to helping others.
Man, if I could ony find a woman like her! I’ll have to make do with interviews like this one with the wonderful Rick William on his YouTube channel. She talks about her crazy, inspirational life, spirituality and how any one of us can create an epic dream life too.
Alexi also has a great channel she still posts on occassionally – check it out!
This world is completely, utterly insane! If you still haven’t woken up to that fact yet, then I have a story for you!
If there is just one experience, one anecdote that I would use to prove to anyone or to try to convince them that our reality, is way more than we can explain by using our limited 5 senses, then my experience with an energy healer recently, would be my choice!
This was the moment that really tipped me from being 99% sure in the law of attraction, to 100%. Because I actually FELT something, for the first time. I had a tangible, physical experience that I simply could not refute, no matter how I tried to rationalise it.
Everything else that I would have previously used in conversation with doubters, was anecdotal or had the minute chance that it could just have been coincidence (I would be 99% sure it was down to the law of attraction but there was always a 1% chance it might have been sheer coincidence).
But not the energy healing; he wasn’t even in the same COUNTRY as me! Read more →
A few years ago, before I began my process of awakening (you know, from that zombie-esque sleepwalking!) questioning everything in life, and self-development, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear, would have been the type of book I would have run a mile from!
On the outside, it appears to be your classic, namby-pamby, head in the clouds, self-help, woo-woo drivel for pretentious creative types. Written by the author of Eat, Pray, Love (your classic namby-pamby, head in the clouds, white middle-class American woman on a foreign journey of self discovery drivel!), you can see how one might think that!
But once again on this increasingly incredible twist to my life over the past 2 years, I find myself thinking and feeling the exact opposite of what the old me would have thought or felt. Read more →
If you’d told me 18 months ago that I would meditate every single day, without fail and actually ENJOY it, I would have had you sectioned – for you surely would have been insane! I simply could not keep my mind quiet for more than 10 seconds – and that was a struggle! And on the odd moments where I did manage to relax, I would fall asleep!
There was literally nothing I liked about this practice. My legs ached for days after sitting in the lotus position. I never managed to shut out all thoughts – my mind would always race away to whatever worries I had going on that day. It was a wholly frustrating experience and I just didn’t understand what all the fuss was about.
Ever wondered how a psychic/seer can read people’s future? Some of you may know Teal Swan, she’s a bit of a YouTube sensation (incredible life story!) and describes herself as a “spiritual catalyst”. She’s also a seer. This is my fave video of hers.
I’ve been celibate for almost 2 years. Now I know what you’re thinking;
“You aren’t actually celibate Tim, you just haven’t pulled in ages!”
Well, I’ll admit, it wasn’t a choice at first! I had been single for much longer than 2 years but for a long time, my focus had been on getting a girlfriend way too much.
It got to the point, around the time of my awakening, that I started to think I should actually stop even trying to meet someone. After all, it had only caused me stress and frustration for most of my life. I realised that if I could put all the energy I spent trying to meet women into something more productive, I would improve my life much quicker.
Part of the problem was that I had spent most of my life trying to get women to like me. Trying to get a girlfriend. And failing miserably! I’ve only had one serious relationship and even that didn’t last long. Anxiety was a key factor in that but I can’t put the blame entirely there.
There came a point where I did actually say to myself;
“Tim, you are going to remain single for the forseeable future. You are not going to date. You are not spending any more time on dating sites. You do not need or indeed, want, a girlfriend in your life right now.”
