Taking advice from people who are not doing what you want to do

Have you ever met someone who has told you that something you are trying to accomplish wouldn’t be possible for you? A person, who would unintentionally or maybe intentionally try to crush your dream before you even begin? It happened to me quite a few times.

One time, in my twenties, when I decided to take the route of becoming a private pilot. I was excited about my dream, so I was telling many people about it and of course, most of them were very encouraging and genuinely happy for me. But one day, I had a conversation with a person who started listing all the reason why I could fail. He said, that it would be too hard, there is so much maths and physics involved, that English is not my first language, so it would be even double-hard, besides I’m going to put myself into to lots of debt because flying is just too expensive.

It turned out later, this individual didn’t even have a pilot’s license himself, yet he was trying to crush my dream before I even began my journey. Since then, I’m really careful who I share my dreams with and take advice from, especially the people who are not doing something I’m striving to do.

You decide what’s possible for you

There are many possibilities for all of us and it is up to us whether we make something happen or not. If you believe in yourself and put the hard work into it, you can make anything happen. If it’s important to you, you will find a way, if not, you will find an excuse. Listen to your own inner wisdom and focus on what you want to do.

Be aware of people who are negative about something you are excited about

These kind of people are incapable of doing something themselves, so they try to push their fear onto you too. If they were willing to change the approach, they could definitely achieve some great things themselves. Unfortunately, they are too focused on the ‘Why they can’t’.

To summarise it, don’t be angry with these people, but rather be compassionate. Always be positive and who knows…maybe your positive approach towards your dream will show them, that they too can accomplish some cool things in their lives just by changing their attitude. Anyhow, taking advice from people who are not doing what you want to do is a big NO, NO! Focus on you, your dreams and most importantly, have fun in this process.

And lastly, besides the hard work and everything else that man listed, I completed my training successfully and became a private pilot 🙂 What a great journey it has been.


How to get into the right alignment to start manifesting the life you truly want

This week, I would like to share with you some of my favourite ways to get into alignment with the powerful energies of the Universe and start manifesting the life you truly want. I believe those of you who are into manifesting can really understand that being on a positive frequency is the number one key how you can successfully call in what you desire. It’s about feeling good. Once you feel good, manifesting becomes easy and fun because you realise the strength of your being. You are the creator of your own reality.

But how about when we are not feeling so good, when we are feeling upset, angry and out of alignment? How do you shift your vibration from these low frequencies? How do you change already a bad day to a good one?

Lately, I’ve been noticing how I easily get triggered by other people. From careless drives on the roads to random strangers walking on a high street unintentionally trying to irritate me by being uncoordinated and always in my way. I’ve noticed how low my energy gets when these situations strike. I’ve realised how this sometimes affects even my entire day.

So, after feeling quite edgy in the last couple of months due to several reasons, I’ve decided to approach these occurrences differently. I’ve stopped giving them too much attention and my precious energy. I try not to dwell on the unimportant too much. After all, it has consequences and if I can avoid them I will. I don’t want to feel down, uneasy and angry with the world.

I believe we can all start shifting our vibrational frequency and start manifesting our dream life instead of being a victim of it, just by making some small adjustments. Listed below are some of my suggestions:

A) The talk

Some people may say that positive self-talk is a cliché, but I don’t. It changes my mood almost instantly. It may not work for everyone, but in my case works like magic. It is often by repetition, we can get into better alignment with some positive energies and this will lead to more positive experiences. Talk yourself out of the bad mood.

B) Movement

To keep the vibes high, I highly recommend moving your body. Walking in nature, doing yoga, going to the gym…whatever works for you. I know going to the gym isn’t for everyone, myself included, but any form of physical activity can do the trick. Know yourself and most importantly move your body every day in some way.

C) Inspiration + Fun

I try to read something inspiring every single day (especially when I feel down), even if it’s just a couple of sentences. This is not to delude, as some people may say, but it is to inspire myself. I care deeply about my wellbeing and I know myself enough and what works for me. Another suggestion could be listening to an inspiring podcast or watching a funny video that can bring you right up from the self-pity or upset to a good mood.

D) De-cluttering

What can you let go of? Is it throwing something out, donating it to a charity, or letting go of an old habit? Think about it and make a decision to discard whatever is no longer serving you or holding you back today.

E) Music

Music is an amazing healer. When I want to raise my vibrational frequency and get into alignment with the positive energies, I put on the headphones and listen to the music that brings joy to my soul. My personal favourites are Alex Adair- Make me feel better and Matt Simons- Catch & Release.


Speak up & stand in your power

Ever since I can remember, I have been afraid of standing up for myself. I often said yes when I meant no, just to please others. I would go out of my way doing favours for other people, so they wouldn’t get upset with me, even though I knew they wouldn’t do the same for me. I didn’t know what being assertive meant and thought of myself as inferior and worthless. All I was striving for was to be liked, accepted and have friends. With that, came lots of advantage-taking and emotional pain. I had no boundaries and this caused me so much inner suffering.

In terms of speaking up, this was a huge deal for me. I must admit, I still detour into this place more than you may think. Picking up the phone and deal with something that can’t be resolved any other way, making a complaint at a department store which I have a full right to make can still be a big challenge for me. Why? I’m still afraid. I still haven’t healed myself fully, my past fears and feelings of inadequacy. That’s the truth.

Confidence

Most people who don’t know me think I’m very confident. In my case, confidence is a learned skill. By making this statement I don’t mean I’m faking it or I’m pretending to be someone I’m not. I’ve passed that stage. What I mean, however, is that we live in a tough world, and learning to be tough and becoming more confident is a necessity, especially for us introverts. On the other hand, I am very confident in my ideas and beliefs, and I’m so happy this comes to me naturally.

Setting boundaries

The year 2010 was a year of big changes for me when my inner transformation truly began. Little did that I know at the time, it will take years to shed off many old energies and unlearning bad habits which caused me so much pain and anxiety. I’m still working on it, but the transformation I am seeing is incredible. I’m learning to speak up more and fear the world less. I’m learning to stand in my power and be the person I truly am without pretending or trying to impress anyone. It’s not always an easy process, but I am willing to be a life long student if I must.

Why am I sharing all this with you today?

  • To help you be your authentic self while you are working on bettering yourself
  • To give you permission to step out of your own comfort zone, so you can start becoming the person you truly are
  • To help you release the blocks that have been holding you back and step into your truth, fully
  • To help you accept that it is okay to disappoint people when their requests don’t resonate with your truth
  • To help you let go of old beliefs and labels others may have placed on you and you so deeply accepted

“Own your truth. Be who you came here to be. Don’t be ashamed of your story and show the world the beautiful person and soul that you truly are.”

Tired of getting other people’s approval

We all want to be liked and accepted. We all want an occasional acknowledgement that what we are doing is right and we are doing it well. With social media being a big part of our lives these days, some of us measure our worth by the ‘Likes’ and comments we get on these platforms.
I must admit, I sometimes too, find myself checking the ‘Likes’ and comments, to see how are people responding to my sharings.
And here is something very interesting I’ve noticed recently: When I post something very positive, not many people actually respond to it and I can sense they don’t really like the positivity, as strange as this may sound (by like, I don’t only mean pressing the ‘Like’ button). I often sense the energy of resentment towards the positive posts. But that’s okay.
I’m not upset about this, because, I don’t want people ‘liking’ something just for the sake of liking it. And none of this really matters anyway. What I’m referring to is that I feel people would rather criticize others (whether that’s in their mind or publicly) than cheering them up when they are doing well. People are more comfortable in their unhappiness because it’s familiar. Seeing a positive post may actually trigger something within them they are not ready to face.

No, I’m not always positive and inspiring. Who is?

I’m not always positive, but as I’m becoming more and more honest with myself and letting go many old resentments and grudges, I am able to find beauty in others and the jealousy and inferiority are slowly fading away. I’m not going to lie, I used to be quite depressed, for many years I suffered from severe anxiety, I lived in so much fear and this was making me feel miserable, jealous and sometimes even unpleasant to others. And the truth is, I still get triggered by some people. Who doesn’t? But there is a big difference in my life now. I love seeing others succeeding. I love seeing others happy and positive. They are a reflection of my own successful, happy and positive self. When it comes to social media, I deliberately search for positive messages, because they make me feel good, and of course, when I get inspired by something, I want to share it with others too. It’s uplifting, inspiring and can help change someone’s day, even their life. That’s my reason for sharing positive messages around the Cyber-Space. 

Forget about the ‘Likes’ it’s about doing what you love

Your ‘Likes’ on social media do not define you. Focus on you, your life, your loved ones, your priorities. Be yourself, and if you want to post ten times a day on Facebook or Instagram, do so. If someone doesn’t like it, they have a choice of unfriending you or unfollowing you, and this has nothing to do with you. Do what resonates with you and what brings the most joy to your soul. You don’t have to explain yourself to anyone, you don’t have to justify anything to anyone. Just be yourself, make mistakes and enjoy the beauty of this life. This is your journey and only you decide what you want to do with it.

I will leave you with this inspiring quote today:

“Stop looking outside for scraps of pleasure and fulfilment, for validation, security, or love -you have a treasure within that is infinitely greater than anything the world can offer.” ~Eckhart Tolle 


From a procrastinator to an action taker

Hello to all procrastinators. You know who you are, so let’s get right to the point. Are you the one who always complains about not having enough time or coming up with all sorts of excuses (having no energy, not enough finances, being too tired, too cold etc.)? I get it. We all detour to these places once in a while. The question is: Is procrastination starting to affect your every daily life?

I’ve realised that doing the work that has been on your mind doesn’t take that long at all. What does take long, however, is thinking about it. So when I, for example, procrastinate on something, let’s say writing an article, I may spend more time and energy having it in the back of my mind rather than investing my time to actually write. The task may only take me half an hour, yet I sometimes waste 2-3 days putting it aside. When I finally get round to it, I’m amazed how quickly I was able to complete it.

Invest your time to things that matter

We all have 24 hours a day and it’s up to us how we spend these 24 hours. Do you invest most of your time on mindless scrolling through social media or do you actually do the things you say you have no time for? This is a time to get honest with yourself. Imagine how much you could accomplish by adjusting your daily habits? There is a huge difference between being busy and being busy doing things that matter. So what can you discard and what can you keep to create more space in your life?

Begin and the results will follow

Take action today. No more excuses, simply go and do it. Remember what we said earlier, the actual work doesn’t take that long, it’s the thinking about it that takes forever and so much space in your busy mind. Make a decision today, that you are going to step out of the procrastinator zone and you will become that action taker you know you are. So, let’s start making those dreams a reality. It’s time to take action.

A thought to keep

“The best way to get something done is to begin.” ~Author unknown 


What would you like to manifest in your life? Simply decide to have it now

What if I told you that with one simple decision you can change your life? What if I told you that with one simple decision you can get healthy, prosperous, successful or happier? What if I told you that your true power lies within yourself, and by changing your perspective you can shift anything you want in your life.

So, what is it that you truly desire? What would you like to accomplish? What would you like to see happening in your life now? Is it having more finances, a new career, better health or a beautiful relationship? Simply decide.

When you make a decision, you are putting your invisible desire out to the universe and saying, you are ready to see it in your physical reality. Of course, this process may take a little while, but this is entirely up to you and the frequency you put yourself on. It also depends on your belief system and your feeling about it.

Do you feel worthy of your desire? Do you truly believe it can be yours? If so, you are closer than you may think. Feel the feelings of already feeling how you are going to feel when your desire is manifested. Visualising and feeling your desire with you now are the secrets of a creative process. You have to see it in your mind’s eye and feel it within the whole level of your being before it happens. 

Your decision changes everything

Making a decision about what you truly want, means stepping out of your current frequency into a new and higher frequency. This will start creating your new reality. Your current reality is the result of the choices you have made up to this point. If you want to change that reality, you have to change your frequency. And you change your frequency by making a new, conscious decision. This way, you begin the process of re-programming your mind.

My boyfriend and I are currently in the process of changing our perspective on things we thought wouldn’t be possible. We are re-programming our mindsets, making new and exciting choices and letting go of old stories and beliefs. It is a very refreshing process. The results we are starting to see are incredible, and new ideas and possibilities are lining up in front of us almost on a daily basis.

The power lies within you

You are an amazing universal artist and you should start using your magical power now. Start creating the life you desire. You truly deserve it.


Bring more prosperity into your life

I always felt uncomfortable when it came to a topic of money, mainly because I often struggled financially. These days, I look at finances in a completely different way. Money is energy and energy can always be created. Manifesting financial abundance doesn’t bring us all the happiness, but it can certainly bring more ease into our lives.

For this week, I put together some powerful affirmations for you, I believe can shift your perspective about money. You deserve to feel abundant in all areas of your life, and you deserve to start noticing all the unlimited possibilities that surround you. Claim it and start calling in the financial prosperity you are worthy of and you truly deserve. May this recording serve you well.


8 powerful daily reminders

In this fast pace moving world, we often forget to remind ourselves what really matters in life. I believe there are many things we can say to ourselves every single day and they can have a positive impact on our lives. Let’s be honest: Life doesn’t have to be so serious. It should be joyful and adventurous. After all, it is an amazing journey that we should all treasure. Listed below are 8 of my favourite things I began reminding myself every single day and as a result of that, I’m starting to see some great results.

1) You are good enough just as you are

You are good enough just as you are. You have nothing to prove to anyone. Remind these words to yourself every single day, especially in this social media era, where everyone compares to themselves to each other.

2) You create your own reality

Many books and articles have been written about the law of attraction and manifesting. The point I want to make here is this: Be mindful of your thoughts, they create your reality. Your outside world is always a reflection of your inner state.

3) Your dreams can come true

Your dreams can definitely come true if you have the courage to pursue them. Keep taking action every single day towards your dreams, keep working and keep learning from your mistakes. Never give up, your dreams can come true.

4) Be kind to yourself and others

Always be kind to yourself and others. One kind world can change somebody’s entire day and even their life. The same applies to you too. Stop being so hard on yourself and speak kindly to yourself.

5) It’s okay to take rest and don’t feel guilty about it

I must admit, I can sometimes be a workaholic. I have to force myself sometimes to take rest and don’t feel guilty about it. Taking rest is essential to our wellbeing and we should really make it one of our priorities. I’m noticing more and more how much my perfomance improves and how much more after I get done after a proper rest.

6) Be grateful

Gratitude turns what we have into enough. Ask yourself: What am I grateful for today? Get a piece of paper or your notebook/journal and write it all down. This can set your day on a positive frequency.

7) Listen to your inner wisdom

Your intuition is your greatest guide. I often say to people, when you want to make the right decision don’t only ask yourself what do I think about it, but most importantly is to ask yourself: How do I feel about it? Pay attention to the signs in your body, to your feelings and visions. Don’t ignore them, trust them.

8) What has happened served its purpose

We often travel back in time and pay for the same mistakes just by thinking about them. Past is not here anymore and there is nothing that can be changed about the past, only your approach towards your past can be changed. Remember that what has happened served its purpose. Learn from it and focus as much possible on the present moment ~the only place where the true life exists. 


Exciting News: The Mystic Butterfly Notebook is here!

I am so excited to share with you that I recently created my first Mystic Butterfly Notebook with a help of two amazing women, my wonderful sister Maria, a talented artist and a creative and lovely Jane, a graphic designer and author. The notebook will be officially out very soon and I will be announcing the date in the next couple of weeks.

The Mystic Butterfly Notebook can be used in a couple of ways:

1) It’s here to accompany my book Mystic Butterfly ~a guide to your true self

I strongly encourage you to use it when you are working through the exercises in the book. Write it all down and keep it as a guide you can refer to.

2) To begin each day by listing things you are grateful for & fill the rest of the pages with your thoughts, feelings, dreams & visions for the future

Every left-hand side page begins with a saying: Today I am grateful for… which basically means, you can use it as a journal. Start each day by listing things you are grateful for. When you adopt this as a daily practice, you can set yourself on a positive note first thing in the morning. Remember that when we are grateful for what we already have in our lives, that often turns everything else into enough. What a wonderful exercise to begin the day.

At the bottom of every right-hand side page, is a positive affirmation (a different one for every day), which is designed to inspire you. Fill the pages of your notebook with your thoughts, feelings, dreams and visions for the future. It is yours and you can say it all your secrets and desires.

The notebook comes in a hardback cover format and has 154 pages.

I can’t even express how happy I am about this new creation and I really believe it will serve you well. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me: jana@mysticbutterfly.co.uk and I will get back to you within 48 hours.
