“You’re Not My Child!”

How to Cope With Someone Who Has Alzheimer’s

There’s over 6 million people today diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and what’s most interesting is that Alzheimer’s individuals, seem to remember their early and young adult life perfectly but they will have trouble remembering their life they currently live.

This disease is a deterioration of the brain and the person will not remember anyone or how to eat, or even bathe by themselves.  This is a heart breaking disease for family members, and friends as majority of the cases will not know who their friends and family are, however there are some ways to cope and help the individual and you with this disease.

DONT Take it Personally

This is a hard tip to remember, but it is one that must kept in mind.  It is just as frustrating on them as it is on you.  Imagine you forgot to leave the milk out and someone at home reminded you but you don’t remember misplacing the milk. It is a similar way to understand someone with Alzheimer’s.  Do your best to remember it is not a personal, vindictive attack.  Also do not shame or hate yourself, there is nothing you could have done to cause this, and nothing that could have been done to prevent it.  Doctors have some idea but no foundation answer as to what causes this in the brain.

Play Along

The best way to deal with sorrow and sadness, is the find light in the situation, this being said the best way to help someone with Alzheimer’s is to play along with them.  For example if they hold onto a doll and say it’s this child, do not try to correct them, instead play along by offering to hold their so they can get dressed.  You can even offer to bathe their baby so they can have a night off.  Don’t be afraid to get creative!

Let’s keep working together to end Alzheimer’s. One day we will work together and find a cure.

3 Simple Ways to Get More Spiritual in Minutes!

Happy Friday!

I get it, we are busy, between our work, home life, husband and kids, that doesn’t leave us much “me time” let alone spiritual time!

I completely get it, it’s hard it’s stressful and I’m willing to bet you if you set aside even 3 minutes a day to meditate, and get spiritual, you will feel much better!

Spend Time Outdoors

As cliche as it is say this, being outside can really boost the spirit and even help with energy and skin!  You don’t have to stay out long, even a 3 minute walk can do you wonders!  You don’t even have to walk either sitting in the grass and just taking the scenery in can really help you as well.

Count Your Blessings

Again, I know you’re over there probably saying, “that’s so cliche”, but in all honestly showing your divine gratitude for the day even if it’s something as simple, as being able to eat, is what it’s all about, finding the simple, enjoyable blessings is one way to help you on your journey.

Meditate

I think many people get the notion in their head the meditation has to be this long, drawn out, never ending, event.  To be honest you don;t have to meditate for long, even 3 minutes of just inhaling abundance and exhaling negativity can really help you become more spiritual!  Om!

 

How do you get spiritual in turbo time?

Simple Ways to Break Out of Your Chains

We’ve all been there, and we have all done that!

It is no doubt that life has poured spoiled milk into the golden ray of sunshine cereal bowl that we call joy, and when it happens more frequently, well that’s about enough to make anybody want to chain themselves down and and wallow in self pity.

Here’s the honest truth friend, and this does hold true, we have a choice to how we react to situations and stimuli whether that be good ju ju or bad ju ju.  We can sit there and feel sorry for ourselves all we want, but guess what that does, it just makes the world misread our vibes and take us for being weak, which we are not.

So here’s the garbage disposal to end those self defeating feelings and place them down the drain so that the goddess and her consort can find a better energy to shift those to, and so can’t you!

1.It Starts With YOU- I know that’s not what you want to hear, but my dear, you choose to be miserable or you choose to be happy.  It takes a lot of work, DAILY at that, but once you come to realize you can choose how you want to react to the world, no matter what happens you will rise above!

         How to Fix This: Get over yourself, I know it sucks, I work at a minimum wage paying job, and have been there for 9 years.  I don’t care for the mission statement, I don’t care about anything other than getting my job done and going back home.  Sometime’s we just have to bite the bullet for the time being and stay strong.  This too shall pass.

2. Gratitude-  This my friend is a valuable art form in itself.  I know it’s hard when you’re stuck at a dead end job, low on cash, have little to no friends, or just really seem to be in a downward spiral called life.  But there is beauty in that my friend. Gratitude!

Image result for Gratitude

How to Fix This: Be thankful, there really is no simpler way to describe it than that.  Everyday you wake up is a new rise for opportunities, a new energy to come in and a chance to balance and ground yourself to the abundance of the universe.  Find one thing you are thankful daily, it can be as simple as being able to pee even!

3. Find Peace-  It’s cliche to say, but it’s also the hard truth.  You can find peace even in the toughest situations, if you are willing to dig deep enough to discover it.

How to Do This:  The first step to finding peace in your life, is finding it deep within yourself.  Set side 5 to 10 minutes when you first wake up to meditate, and ground yourself, and it’s a great way to start your day!  Lead with this mantra daily: ” I will align myself to the inner peace that is within me”.

Hows it feel not being attached by shackles to negativity?  You must be feeling pretty relieved after reading this.  Also reiki is another great way to remove energy blocks that are holding you back(yours truly happens to be a reiki master).

Namaste,

Manda

Manifest Mania

Simple Manifestations to Increase Abundance

Blessings!

Today I wanted to share a few ways that I am helping clients and people around the world like you manifest money in their life.

  1. Visualization: Imagine every day that your bank account is a cup, imagine a beautiful green healing and abundant light is filling your bank account.  Do this daily for optimum results!
  2.  Every day give thanks to the universe for abundance and open your energy up top the opportunities that may be presented to you today.
  3. In a bowl, add cinnamon, ground is best, and write on a piece of paper, with a couple on coins added to the bowl, an amount of money( now let’s be mindful about this), and leave this out for the 3 days the next full moon will be or leave it out for one night of moon and one day of sunlight.  When you receive the amount of money you asked for, bury the coins in soil out in nature, to return the coins to the earth and the divine.

What manifestation methods have you tried?
