Over the weekend, Netflix suggested I watch ‘Tony Robbins – I Am Not Your Guru’. What an experience that was, it is truly amazing to see how he just cuts straight to the heart of the situation and pushes people into addressing their issues and start living the life they want.
His annual ‘Date with Destiny’ is pretty full on, and not for everybody, but what I really noticed from this documentary was the man himself. In his down time, the camera caught Tony either meditating, jumping into a very tiny and freezing plunge pool (very cool!), doing his gratuity exercises and then tackling his busy busy day.
Now not all of us have the commitment to doing all those things, I mean I for one don’t have a plunge pool. I do however have a balcony I can meditate on and access to the internet. Now that’s an easy step to take to begin this self expansion journey. Meditating isn’t for everyone, and on the days I just cant sit still and quiet the mind, I prefer a materialistic quick fix. On days like that I take enormous pleasure in making boards on my pinterest account. A little white noise and endless images of pretty things are just the key to unlocking your imagination and pin pointing what you do and do not want in your life.
I have several boards on my pinterest, from my dream house, to giant diamond engagement rings, beautiful flowers, stunning landscapes, they are part of what I’d like to materialise in my life. These are pretty standard, and almost any girl with a pinterest account has these, but regardless it’s a great way to known beyond doubt that you want certain things and can’t stand others. TRUST ME, when you see an ugly wedding dress, you’ll know!
Every successful and holistically balanced person you’ve heard of probably does some sort of meditation, and while I vouch for it too, maybe it’s not for you, maybe you’re not in the right head space to begin, or maybe you don’t believe in it. But if you want to start building your life, getting clarity and stating your spiritual journey. Then I suggest swapping your 15 mins of mediation for pinterest. Who knows, maybe 10 years down the line, you come back to your account and realise you’ve achieved all you put into your boards!
And if all else fails…
