Gem Magazine May: Future me

For this magazine, everything that has been on Gem so far, and probably some things which have not been featured, is a huge help! And will ultimately lead to the following.

Talking about the absolute right nutrition, your circadian rhythm, taking the needed supplements, practicing mindfulness and making vision boards, writing yourself future letters, changing the navigation constantly on your plans, educating yourself and adjusting your social media and tv intakes etc.

This’ll be leaning more towards easy biohacking. Biohacking can mean so far as DNA research (which I’ve done btw), but for now, let’s keep it way more simpler.

Easy biohacking; meaning previously stated and mostly psychological biohacking.

So, welcome to the spring of 2022 and May!

Now, imagine a moment and place you’re in at in the future. Your own future, which you alone have created and manufactured.

Infact a key is to visualise yourself there; what you are wearing, what you’re eating or drinking (tea, coffee or perhaps something stronger?), and with who you’re with, or with whom you’re talking on the phone. Etc.

It can be kind of unsettling to see and live that specific moment in your future. Again going back to Feb/March issue with vision boards, it’ll not be a possible future, if there’s no work behind it. If you’ve never tried anything new, then nothing new happens…right?

Meditation is a great tool to help you see further. By meditation I’m not particularly talking about sitting cross-legged for 20min.

Each finds their own meditation features; whether it’s actually sitting in silence or a walking meditation etc. F.e mine is stopping to reroute many times a day while watching a numbing tv-show (on purpose, btw!), or being so active myself, I prefer walk/jog rethinking++out of the box thinking, while there’s movement and fresh air.

Or, just use a guided meditation. Quite easy, all you have to do is to relax.

Feb/March Gem Magazine: Dreams don’t work unless you do

Ever had a dream that literally changed the direction of your life?

This Gem Winter Magazine is going to be a vision board come to life as a text.

Whether you dream of the things that had already happened or are going to happen in the future.

Here comes the headline to fruition: “dreams don’t work unless you do”. The quote is by John C. Maxwell.

That’s also the way that vision boards work; seeing it (or dreams) every day and then put in the work for it. You gotta put in the work for the goal, that’s fairly important. Because dreams don’t work unless you do! It’s reasonably not going to happen that there’s suddenly a million dollars on your bank account without putting in the work, from a dollar to dollar. But you know this! It’s not even Gem material. However, it is manifesting and vision board things.

Stephenie Meyer has said to had have a dream of a girl and a vampire talking in a meadow, before she started writing Twilight or ever thought of writing in the first place. That’s how powerful dreams can be.

If you’re not a crafty person at all (enough of cutting magazines and glue sticking to fingers – type) then f.e Pinterest is great for vision or mood boards.

Just for example, I have one vision board for every month on Pinterest, on where I see any dream I might’ve had, awaken.

There you can keep some (or all) boards hidden and some (or all) boards public.

Joyful visioning days!
