BREAKFAST FOR YOUR MIND - FIRST SITTING FOR 2019
Welcome to a brand new week!
It’s a B-E-A-utiful morning, so let’s get you out of bed with a great big smile on your face and a heart full of love, laughter passion and excitement as we kick off the first Monday of 2019 with a sumptuous FIVE-COURSE Breakfast for Your Mind.
As I spoke about in my first blog back in November last year (click HERE if you want to re-read it before tucking in to your breakfast), every Monday morning throughout 2019 I will be serving up an inspirational cordon bleu Breakfast For Your Mind, designed to put you in a great state for the working (and playing!) week ahead.
The five courses will be served as follows:
Course 1: A brief numerology report for your Monday to make sure you tune in to the numerological rhythm of the next seven days
Course 2: Some comedy to give you a laugh
Course 3: Words to inspire you from people much wiser than me
Course 4: A "Morning Question" to focus your mind on positive thoughts for the day ahead, and throughout the week
Course 5: The final course takes the form of a joke that you can tell other people during the week ahead (I'll try to keep them as clean as I can). The beauty of this final course is that (hopefully!) my joke will make you laugh - which makes you feel good, right? And then every time you tell it to someone else, you will make them laugh as well - which will make you feel even better.
So, without further ado... are you ready?
Are you hungry?
Then (ta da!)... breakfast is served!

FIRST COURSE: NUMEROLOGY REPORT
Today is a 2 day, which means it's a perfect day for connecting with others by starting new friendships and relationships - both personal and professional - or deepening the ones you already have
2 is the number of connection, co-operation and mutual support... so whether it's at work with your colleagues, or at home with your family and friends, this would be a great day to heal old wounds, let go of any differences and make your colleagues and loved ones know just how much you appreciate them.
And because 2 is also the number of intuition and empathy, try to let your inner guidance decide who to focus on and what you say to them.
(Note: To find the energy of a day, simply add together the individual digits of the date, and then add together any double-digit numbers you get until you arrive at a single-digit number between 1 and 9 . Today's date is 7 / 1 / 2019 – so you add together 7 + 1 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 9 to get 20. Then add 2 + 0 to get 10. And finally add 2 + 0 to arrive at 2.)
In numerology, 2 is a water number... and water, as I am sure you know, is the element that governs our emotions and feelings. The other water number is 6, but whereas 6 resonates with the energy of divine love (ie, the spiritual bliss that is ours when we focus on love as being all-encompassing in our lives), 2 is more concerned with inter-personal love - in other words, the compassionate connections we have with our fellow travellers who cross paths with us on this inner journey we call "life".
So today, try to see the love in everyone and try to magnify the feelings of love you feel in your heart - not just for everyone you connect with today, but also with your Self. Because, as the eternally wonderful Whitney Houston, sang... Self-love truly is The Greatest Love of All.
Oh, and don't forget to smile at as many strangers as you can today as you "spread the lurv" far and wide. After all, sometimes a loving smile - which takes a split second and zero energy - can make a monumental difference in how someone else might be feeling.
Finally, if there is a project you want to start but need the help of others to bring it to fruition, today would be the perfect day to approach whoever it is you want to work with. Again, trust your intuition to tell you not just who to approach, but how to approach them and what to say.
Have fun. Be as open and loving as you can. And take this opportunity to enrich all the relationships in your life.
(Oh, and if you want to find out more about numerology and what it can do for you, I will am delighted to offer you a FREE 12-page PDF e-book called "The Nine Numbers of Numerology". Click HERE to learn more.)

SECOND COURSE: A DAY WITHOUT
LAUGHTER IS A DAY WASTED
Did you know children laugh on average 10 times more every day than adults do? So stop being such a serious old fart and try to spend as much time today as you possibly can laughing - and pump those happy little endorphins around your blood stream.
Here's my favourite comedian Eddie Izzard to get you started on the right foot. Even if you have seen it before, it's bound to raise a chuckle or two.

WORDS TO INSPIRE YOU
The quality of our thoughts determines the quality of our life - and not just how we feel at any given moment, but what we are capable of achieving. That's why it's essential to direct your mind to think positive thoughts as often as possible, starting right now with one of my favourite "Quotes To Live By"...
"Happiness is a butterfly that, when pursued, is always beyond your grasp... but which, if you sit down quietly, may alight upon you."
- Nathaniel Hawthorne

SET YOUR FOCUS FOR THE DAY
There's an old saying: "Whatever we focus on, we feel." So if we focus on all that is wrong with our life, we're going to feel pretty crap! But if we can train our mind to focus on what is good in our life (or COULD be good, if there really is nothing good at the moment) then not only are we going to feel better, but our life will get better as well.
So this fourth course is designed to help you control what you focus on. And the very best way to control what you focus on is to train your brain to ask empowering questions every morning when you first wake up to put you in a great frame of mind for the day.
You see, the human brain works just like a computer. If you ask it a question, it has to answer it. It can't not. So if you ask it a negative question, such as "Why does this always happen to me?", it's going to give you a negative answer along the lines of "Because people are bastards", or "Because the world is cruel", or even worse: "Because you don't deserve any better."
It's time to take control of the questions you ask your Self, starting from the moment you wake up., and the very best way to do this is to write down a list of questions that are guaranteed to make you focus on all that is good in your life (or COULD be good), and put them up on your bathroom mirror so that you see them every morning and literally PROGRAM your brain to look for the positives in your day ahead.
My friend Tony Robbins calls them "Morning Questions", and here is the first one to get you started.
(Note: Please don’t just read the question for a second and then go back to playing Candy Crush or reading the paper. You need to fully associate – for at least 30 seconds – to how it makes you FEEL, and then spend another 30 seconds thinking about how you can use all those wonderfully positive emotions to make today - and every day - a day in which you truly make a difference in someone else’s life, as well as your own.
Ready? Set? OK, here goes…
"Who do I love, and who loves me? How does that make me FEEL? And who can I tell today that I love them who I haven't told for a while? And how would that make THEM feel?"

FIFTH COURSE: JOKE OF THE WEEK
Please remember that long, drawn-out jokes may be fine at a dinner party when it's late and everyone has had a skinful. But during the daytime - and especially at work - jokes have to be short and sweet.
With that in mind, here's one I heard the other day...
Q: Why did the scarecrow win the Nobel prize?
A: He was out standing in his field!
