    I do, but they are very little things. I have only great or as I say magical days now. I really do!!!

    I have a concept that I live by. I am very calm and I pay attention to my level of calmness. In the moment, my calmness goes down by 1% I do everything to bring it up to where it was before. I talk to myself, all the amazing things, or play with my dogs, or watch a comedy. You see I make sure that my calmness if it goes down is only by a fraction.

    Why do you think it is a great idea to do that? :huh:

    Then, I pay a great attention to growing that calmness as much as I can every single day. I do the tools that I teach. When you will pay attention to your calmness, what is going to happen in your life? Will you have bad days? :silly:

    Why do I only let my calmness go down by a fraction and not more? :huh: Why is that important? :dry:

    When you say, your calmness goes down.. what do you mean by that?? So you can actually focus on your calmness? I can honestly say, I have never even given it a thought as to how calm I am….I guess this is another thing to add to the list of things to do….I imagine it comes to you easily without you even having to think about it.

    When I say that my calmness goes down, I mean that is not on the same level I expect it to be. Imagine you are meditating. When you finish meditating, you are very calm, but as you start your day, you can feel your calmness going down. That is what I am talking about. I let my calmness go only a fraction down and I bring it up straight away.

    And yes, I focus on my calmness all the time. I have found it much easier to pay attention to how calm I am than trying to lift myself up. I discovered that over 1.5 years ago and I find it a very sufficent and very easy thing to do. 😉

    Why do you think it is easier that way? :huh:

    How do you bring your calmness up straight away without meditating?? I don’t know why its easier to bring your calmness down instead of lifting yourself up…I think this is something very important to know! It seems like it could be a key….significant key!

    Remaining calm is a moment to moment challenge. In this complicated rushed world we are all bombarded with stuff that can cause anxiety. :unsure:
    To be calm it takes a conscious effort and practice practice practice. 🙂

    I’d like to know specifically how to do it

    My newest trick is to allow myself to be sensitive to all my feeling.
    When I feel something that is uncomfortable I have my mind say STOP.
    That is when I feel the feeling, ask myself where is it coming from. What is going on that is creating this feeling?
    Now for the big part. What can I do to change it?
    This may sound difficult but I have programed this into my mind and practiced a lot.
    Give yourself time. You didn’t get where you are overnight.

    Emptiness is a feeling. Think of an empty clear buitfuly carved vessel. Nothing is in the container yet.
    Think about people, places, and things that have brought you feelings of joy, happiness and abundance into your life. Now immagion them in the vessel.
    Think of the perfect people, places and things that you know will make you happy. Now immagem them in the vessel.
    You are that beautiful vessel. You can chose how to fill it. Because it is beginning from emptiness you have a lot to look forward to.
    Remember make wonderful happy choices.
    If anything else tryes to polute your thoughts say (oh no you don’t) My vessel is beautiful and clear and only will allow beauty and happiness to enter.
    Enjoy the new you.

    I would suggest that if you can, meditate to bring your calmness up. If you cannot as you are busy with work or any other situation that you cannot put the CD on, do this. Close your eyes for a moment and drop your shoulders relaxing your body. It works!!! When you practice that, you won’t even need to close your eyes, you will just drop your shoulders down, relaxing your body and you will feel awesome!!! :woohoo:
