In this episode I will explain how everything we have experienced up to this very moment has made us who we are today.
All of our impressions, everything we watch, read and hear impacts our psyche in a big way. The implications of this idea can help us to understand our past, and the things that we experienced when we were younger, our present, regarding how we choose to spend our time on a daily basis, as well as our future, if we continue along the same lines day in and day out.
We have every right to make our lives better, to make them the best we are able, and I believe that knowledge and understanding of who we are plays a huge part in this process. I hope the Vlog gives you what you need to move ahead in your own life.
I was at the park over the weekend and was observing the world going by as I often do, when it struck me that more people than normal had their faces glued to their phone screens. It was only an hour or so later that I realised the reason for this and it was because everyone was playing the augmented realty game Pokemon Go.
Now what is augmented reality? One definition I found is that it is a technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on a users view of the real world thus providing a composite view.
It can also be quite dangerous to have your eyes glued to the phone screen, and towards the end of the Vlog I share a short montage of people getting into trouble because they are not being mindful of the world around them and the dangers it can often present.
The reason for this Vlog is that we have a responsibility to take control of our lives and create the future that we want to see, and not just go with the flow only to wake up in ten years and realise that what we are living is not what we wanted.
In this episode I’m talking about all things mindfulness. What is mindfulness? Why practice mindfulness? And also sharing 5 tips to increase your mindfulness practice. By the end of the video you will have all the tools necessary, and know everything you need to begin practicing mindfulness.
I have had a mindfulness practice for close to 10 years now and it has transformed my life, its increased my level of peace and happiness and allowed me to experience every aspect of my life more fully.
The 5 mindfulness tips I share are:
- Mindful activities.

In this episode I thought I would share briefly where my mind has been at and what things I have been thinking about.
We don’t have to accept the lot we have been given. We have the potential within us to make a massive change in our lives. Society has grown and been shaped by thousands of years of historical influence, this doesn’t mean that we must accept our current station in life.
I am super confident that an individual can change their life for the better, but these books I have been reading are turning my mind to what might be possible for us as a collective. Keep watching to see if my thoughts might well become a movement….
- What is Mental Health?
- How can we increase our awareness of it?
- Why is it so important to make time in our life for better understanding of Mental Health?
Mental Health can be defined as a persons condition regarding their psychological and emotional well being. It affects how we think, feel and act, and is also a huge determiner in how we handle stress, make choices and relate to others.

There is a term in Arabic: Hafiz, and it’s meaning is that of guardian or memoriser. It is a term used by Muslims for someone who has completely memorised the Qur’an.
The Qur’an is divided into 114 Surahs (chapters), containing 6,236 verses (comprising some 80,000 words or 330,000 individual characters). This process generally takes between 3 and 6 years part-time together with schooling.
There are many Hafiz all over the globe. Those noble among us who spend their time focussing on and memorising the Holy Scriptures.
We now have a specific list of the Worlds various lineages and their works. And we have all of the worlds Scripture to draw from.
Where would you begin? The Qur’an, The Gospels, Psalms, Phaedo, Bhagavad Gita? The list is endless. We can’t memorise them all, but it is clear that we can certainly memorise one. Where would you start?
