A little about me and my philosophy
Hello! I want to welcome you to my first blog post, I’m Jonathan and I’ve been playing this game of life for over 40 years now..sometimes successfully and and sometimes not so successfully; sometimes I’ve been thriving and sometimes.. well I have literally been sinking underneath the despair that happens from just being human and trying to navigate the uncertain ocean of life. It has been those times when I’ve felt that I’ve almost drowned, that my greatest learnings and insights to life have happened – those times when I’ve felt like I’ve wanted to end it all have prompted me to seek out a meaning, a reason for being here, a reason for the pain and the suffering, a reason also for experiencing the joy and happiness – and how we can have more of that rather than the pain and despair. Questions I’ve constantly asked myself have been: What is life? Why are we here? What’s it all about?
Do I know what life is all about? No, I don’t know. And I’ve come to the conclusion that maybe we’re not meant to know – if we were, then we wouldalready know, right?! We wouldn’t have these questions in the first place, we would feel safe, secure and powerful.. things would go well all the time for us because we would be certain why things happen, we’d see the ‘bigger’ picture, we’d be able to see the events of our lives from birth to death and therefore see why everything happens. We would have FAITH, we would be STRONG, we would be POWERFUL and fulfil our POTENTIAL.
So if we can’t know these answers for certain, if we can’t have this knowledge of our lives, does that mean we’re forever doomed to uncertainty and unknowing, pain and despair, and being tossed around on the ever changing tide of the ocean of life? Being a passive object at the mercy of things beyond our control rather than someone who can master their lives, living each day purposefully creating the life they actually want to be living? I’m here to tell you, no it doesn’t mean that we’re doomed. Just because we don’t know the meaning of life, just because we’ve experienced pain and fear, doesn’t mean that our lives have to remain like that forever, we can be liberated, we can be freed from uncertainty and begin to live life the way we are truly meant to live it -with PURPOSE, JOY and LOVE.
I have learned through my personal journey things that can make life easier, techniques and philosophies that give life some meaning and help us to cope, from the everyday hurdles of life to life-changing events, and for when things are going well, these techniques and philosophies can help us THRIVE making us feel better than we could ever imagine, infusing our days with joy and allowing us to take conscious control of our destinies.
I want to share with you where I have been, where I am and where I’m going to and to show you that you’re not in this game of life alone. When things aren’t going well, there are things that can make it easier, and when things are going well, there are things you can do that can make life truly FANTASTIC. Through my studies of philosophy, Buddhism, Kabbalah, the Law of Attraction and my practices of Hypnotherapy, Reiki, Yoga and lecturing in Yoga and Philosophy for many years, I’ve learned lots of things and gathered insights into living a better life, living a fuller life where youcan take conscious control of your life and your personal destiny. You can create the life you want.
Through applying some of the processes I will share with you, you can completely change your mindset and thus totally change your life – creating the life you DESERVE. A life that happens for you, rather than to you.
From meditation to breathing techniques, affirmations, creating a life story of how you wish your life to unfold, finding things in your life that are already serving you well, using the Law of Attraction in a conscious way, advice on health and well-being, I will guide you and help you every step of the way to becoming a fully self-empowered, creative, purposeful human being – fully able to direct your mind and your life to that which you wish to experience. You will have a bag of tools and techniques which you can call upon to assist you when times are difficult, but also to accelerate your progress when times are going well.
So if you want to improve your life, feel more fulfilled, live your days with more passion and purpose, then I invite you to join me and let’s share in this journey together.
With love –
