Break-ups, Crisis & Daily Mishaps to FLOW & Happiness

My dear, last year someone broke up with me for being too “spiritual”. I know what he meant and that’s perfectly fine. I was actually really thankful that he was so clear and honest with me. But still, for a while, and with the events of last year, it rocked my confidence. When I started seeing a psych in September, I expressed that I didn’t know what to believe anymore. But as life and our sessions progressed, I came to realise that I actually do have many beliefs and practices that are helpful to myself and to others.

So that’s why I’ve started sharing them more. Each time there is some mishap or some difficult person or situation to deal with, I use my practices even more and give them to those who need help. I know of people going through really tough situations right now, like a dad who’s not been able to see his two young sons for a year because his ex has made false claims about him. I would like people who are going through stuff like that to know that it’s entirely possible to turn your life around, but you have to believe you can affect the outcome.

One thing to know about the law of attraction is that the vibration of the problem is not the same as that of the solution. When you’re sitting there trying to figure stuff out, the solution is elusive, but when you go for a walk or go do something else, it comes. Last week I had a really strange thing happen. My car registration was due and had been paid but the money returned to the bank account. I got on the phone to pay or figure out what was going on and while I was waiting, I heard some useful information on the recorded message and knew that I needed to go to The Department of Transport.

So off I went. It was a Wednesday afternoon and Perth was in a semi-lockdown so  all the social distancing procedures were in effect. I was a little stressed by this situation because I didn’t know what was going on and by the time I got to the counter, I could tell this was not the right lady to get. She kept telling me to stand back when I moved from my spot and then told me I had to take my car to the pits because the number plates had been cancelled. When I told her I still had the number plates she was confused and went to get advice. Meanwhile I stood on my spot, masked up, till she came back and told me to return with my number plates.

In a panic, I thought to go home and get back there that day, but there was a lot going on, school-hour traffic, and so I decided to return in the morning when I was fresh. So that is what I did. The problem was resolved easily and effortlessly, with my new energy, and I didn’t have to wait long. The lady said that it had been an error and I accepted that, knowing everything happens for a reason, including this. I actually ended up with a few added bonuses, including money saved.

Thinking that “It shouldn’t have happened” or how annoying it was that I had to run around when it was their fault would have been a waste of time and energy. It should have happened because it did. But I know when you’re going through something big or small, it can be hard to get to this place of peace and flow. That’s why I’ve created a couple of guides to help. Uplift is a transformational mini-guide to help anyone wanting to turn their life around,  get out of a slump and start going in an upwards direction or for those who would love some High Vibe Conversation starters. The other is Empower : a free guide to help process emotions, change thoughts and return to peace and happiness.

Lots of love,

Mireille xx

When Your World Crashes Down

The year is 2016 and I am working away in my coaching business, having just finished running the Healthy and Powerfully Feminine online course for the first time, and loving it! Sure there are many ways I could improve my organisational skills. I have a stack of papers beside my desk with all the ideas and projects I’m going to implement and a piece of paper posted to the pinup board above my desk listing out what I’m going to be doing each month. Then Life happens.

Literally, just as I finish the ebook on How To Be Queen of Your Love Life and upload it, the first migraine hits. It feels like having a plate smashed in my face. I stagger home from the cafe and spend the next month either lying in bed, trying to work up the courage to turn over, or making it out dosed up on pills to get different therapies to try and work out what is wrong. In between, when I do feel good, I try to post on instagram, to publicise my ebook and keep running my business, but each time I’m slapped back down by a killer migraine.

Eventually my friend Aleisha says to get an MRI and I do and find out I have a 6cm tumour in my head pushing the whole brain over, causing the migraines. Well, you may know the rest. I have emergency brain surgery two days later, spend a week in the hospital and eight months recovering. The behind the scenes, I will be sharing in my next books. The thing is that after a few months (a few weeks?), I tried to carry on as usual, posting on instagram and then having the great idea (sarcasm) to run a Body Love workshop. Only looking back could I see that I wasn’t ready for it. But at the time, I tried to carry on as usual. Then I accidentally deleted all my YouTube videos by “mistake” one day and was so distraught that I finally gave up.

That was when the journey to wellness really began. It was awful also and  I went through many months of suffering and even longer to fully come to terms with the repercussions, but ultimately I am happier and better. Even though I felt happy and good before. Right now there is a lot of this going on, worlds coming crashing down, and I’m writing this to say that it does get better. This midlife crisis really is for our highest good. The Great Awakening.

Married At First Sight : Intuition & Receiving

Dear friend, have you been watching Married At First Sight? I didn’t know what to write to you about today so I will write about this. Last Monday I woke at 4.30am and couldn’t get back to sleep so I ended up reading Rich As Fuck  and then I felt the urge to look at Amanda Frances’s instagram, which I resisted at first, and from there I had the urge to look at Katrina Ruth’s account, which I resisted at first too. But I read a post from her saying to teach what has been most transformative in your life.

At first I wasn’t sure what has been most transformative in my life. There are things that I’m practising but am not 100% sure about, like the law of attraction. Then there are things that I’m writing my books about but haven’t wanted to write here because I’d rather tell it as a full story. But over the week, it became clear that learning about love and relationships has been the most transformative thing in my life. I started off so bad at it and was for a very long time. But in the last five years this is really what I’ve been studying and practising behind the scenes.

And though my ego was saying “no, no.. I don’t want to teach!” that little call of the soul was saying go on, step in gently. So today, I again had no clue what to write but here it is. My head wanted to write about Married At First Sight but it was only a way for my heart to speak. Intuition feels like a push from the heart to me. It’s a physical feeling, which I practise tuning into. If I have to decide between two things or where to park, what to eat, I’ll ask my heart and listen to the feeling. Left or right, I ask, and I get an impulse or an answer of right or left. Know what I mean? 

Jess Lively has said, “The ego pushes, the soul calls” and sometimes I haven’t been so clear on what this means. But I guess it is exactly what I’ve just written about. My mind wants a good night’s sleep and decides I shouldn’t look up the Married At First Sight cast before bed because I wake up at 4.30am alert, my brain churning with ideas. But sometimes this is a good thing. One thing I feel for sure is true from the law of attraction (Abraham) teachings is that we receive thought, according to our vibrational frequency. That’s why I don’t think about important things at night when I’m tired or have critical discussions then.

But these little bread crumbs, one thing leading to the next, that morning at 4.30am, felt like part of a manifestation for sure, leading to me here, with more to come. Over the week other pieces started to come together, as ideas formulated out of the abyss. Abraham says that thought is manifestation, and sometimes you are not ready for your desire so you get the letting in process instead. These past five years have been a letting in process, a learning, an education, stepping stones on a path of discovery, still continuing. But getting closer it seems.

The Places Ego And I Have Been!

‘You are always on your path.’

~ Abraham Hicks

Oh I now have clarity! So awesome.

Well so I’ve still been pondering the questions posed in Tuesday’s post. But, as you know, it’s the moments when we let go that we receive our answers. Anyway, I’m a person with a lot of thoughts in my head (it’s even in my human design chart. Have you checked yours yet?) and that’s fine.

The trick is to remember that my intuition comes from my spleen and heart, not my head. According to human design, 70% of people’s intuition comes from their sacral chakra (gut area) btw.

So I was making a list of the places that my ego has taken me, that we’ve run in the direction of.

1. Joining the coaching academy when I was supposed to be recovering from breast cancer.
2. Setting up the Zen French Woman site.
3. Starting the Powerfully You Show.
4. Signing up for the course on running courses last year.
5. Setting up Wonderlust on Amazon.
6. Starting these 4 IG accounts.
7. Committing to doing a month of Master Your Mind videos.

Actually I resisted at first and thought a lot about some but they seemed like a good idea. Then turned out to not be my path. Except for 3 of the IG accounts, I’m still happy with that and just doing it because I enjoy it and not because it makes “sense”.

Though all of them I’ve gotten clarity on what I truly want to do through, experienced a huge amount of growth because of and enjoyed them immensely for a time. But see we often see the success stories and the finished products and think it’s easy and perhaps if that’s your path it will be worth it.

But all this has shown me that we are always on our paths anyway. Even the detours! It’s all taking us right here to this moment, which is perfect.

Hope you are having a wonderful week and enjoying the full moon!

Lots of love,

Mireille xx

Is It An Ego Or Soul Desire?

‘The ego pushes, the soul calls.’

~ Jess Lively

Oh I’m a bit confused. I’ll let you know what I’m wondering about.

Ok so last night I heard from Aubrey Marcus that part of the hero’s journey (a la Joseph Campbell) is “the call” and the soul will often resist the call, whereas the ego runs straight towards its desires.

Hmm. I have many thoughts on this.

I definitely feel and experience that the ego pushes while the soul calls.

The ego says, you have to do it now! While the should knows, all in good time.

Aubrey says though that often we resist the thing we actually should do.

I’ve tried to think about this in terms of my own life.

What have I resisted?

* Quitting my coaching business after the first brain surgery. Yes, it was the thing I needed to do.

* Being single here in Perth. It was the thing I needed to do.

* Learning Amazon ads and how to write copy. Certainly I hope this was the thing I needed to do because I’m doing it now.

* Starting my @mireilleparkerauthor instagram page so I can specialise. Just started that.

* Quitting my part-time teaching job. I feel it was what my soul was guiding me to do with all this metastasis, giving me a reason to truly allow myself.

These are just some of the things I can think of right now.

Then I also do believe that we need to be discerning (or I do), especially in this age when so much is on offer. That suits the ego desire theory; the shiny objects on our path.

But then again, those detours have often provided so much learning, so much experience and wisdom. And fun. 

Not everything is manifestation, as Lacy Phillips teaches, the universe also sends us tests to see if we are ready, if we really have the self-esteem to say no to what we don’t want. So true I find!!

Today I had this experience as I was walking before work and came across a local newspaper with the word ‘novel’ on the front page. The story was about how local bookshops are really thriving during this time of Corona.

I kept on walking but could feel a pit of fear in my stomach. What if I fail? That’s what it was saying. Do I have to go and contact this place now?

I just breathed through it.

Later I remembered how just yesterday I was telling a friend how there’s so many ways I could be getting my books out there but networking is really not my jam.

I’m an introvert!

I’d rather just write a post. Create a YouTube video even.

I think this was a test. I’d just said what I wasn’t available for and so was tested.

But should I do the thing I’m resisting?

You see the dilemma?

I’m just going to wait and see and keep on setting up my ads.

Already that’s a stretch. I’m itching to be working on my next books.

I’d love to know what you think about this. REPLY and let me know. Is there something you’ve resisted that turned out to be exactly what you needed to do?

Something to ponder at least.

Hope you are having a wonderful week my dear!

Till Thursday.. Join here to receive my release your feelings guide & next post.

How To Get Over An Ex!

‘What we resist persists.’

Once upon a time I had a video on YouTube called The Art of Getting Over An Ex and then I went and accidentally deleted all my videos on the path to here, but a month back I saw a story on the news about an ex murdering his ex’s new boyfriend and it makes me so sad to hear this. Getting over an ex is how I began my personal development journey and learned how to train my mind so it didn’t drive me mental. That’s why I put out Master Your Mind : Create Peace Within so quickly.

We are magical.

But How To Get Over An Ex?

1. Allow time and space to feel.

Apparently it takes half the time of your relationship to get over someone. I’ve had shorter ones that took longer and also those that really took no time at all. But when you ignore it, if it affected you, it will still be there waiting for you and come out the moment you are still.

When I first moved back to Australia, I tried to just get on with my life. I was so busy I barely had time to think about it. Didn’t want to. But it was there under the surface. Then I got into other relationships and had to get over those also. Finally Life forced me to feel the damn thing. If you want my process for feeling and releasing feelings get it here.

2. Focus on the negatives.

I don’t think I’ve ever done this but there’s so much value in the pros and cons list. Once you see it there, you can decide which is better and move on. I know this sounds so logical and feelings aren’t like that but our feelings can be caused by thoughts and we do have ways to change them or just allow them without reacting.

Focusing on the negatives of a person or situation is a way to create new neural programming. Right now your mind might keep bringing up the positives because the ego’s job is to keep us safe and “better the devil you know” as it goes. Each time you think of that person positively, you have to replace the thought with a negative. It doesn’t mean the person is bad, it’s just a way to stop your mind from tormenting you. Train that beast.

3. Remove the apps.

If the problem is obsessing over the person online, give yourself a no checking 30-day challenge and mark it off on your calendar. This weakens the neural programming and dopamine hit you’re getting clicking on that person’s page. That will only continue the attachment. It doesn’t have to be forever. You can also have a friendship in the future but if you’re creeping round the internet and causing yourself pain, stop it.

4. Realise what you’re resisting.

What we resist, persists. Ask yourself, preferably write it down, “What am I resting here?” Once when I was struggling to get over a person, I asked myself this question and had the epiphany that I was resisting that this person did love me anymore. That he didn’t find me attractive. That he was more interested in other people. What freedom. Like the negatives, you could write a list of what’s perfect about your current situation and accept it.

5. Be present.

There is a space between the action (or thought) and the reaction, and if we sit in it, it grows. Meditation is so helpful in learning how to do this or , as I wrote last time in how to turn fear to faith, imagine a bulldozer pushing the thought out of your head.

Of course feel your feelings and release them, but don’t get tangled up in repetitive thinking. Sometimes my mind likes to bring up the past and I just get curious about it. What’s Psyche wanting to show me? Is there something I still need to deal with or is it just fun? Just boredom?

6. Go outside.

Or dance or clean a cupboard. There’s a time and place for distraction. Going outside reminds us what a wonderful world we live in and it shifts our vibe (like the dancing or cupboard cleaning) so we actually do receive different thoughts.

7. Create your magical future.

Focus on your goals and dreams and work on creating those. Every ending is a new beginning yo. Write as if you’re three months in the future about all that you have done and received during this time. There’s a whole world of development at our fingertips. Remind yourself of the powerhouse that you are (You the Queen) (or King). Decide who you want to be from now on and be it.

I hope you enjoyed this and I hope it helps. It’s been awhile!

How Hindi Vinyl Made Me A Writer!

‘To act but not to grasp.’

~ Wisdom of the Tao

When I was in my late teens, one of my friends did photography as part of her art program and then degree. She sometimes used me in her shoots and I really enjoyed the process and would input my ideas on the day. As I shared in How a Breakup Changed my Life, I was a very creative child but didn’t have an outlet for it after starting high school and turned myself into the art project, developing disordered eating, obsession with food and always trying to diet, over-exercise and perfect myself.

So when I met Satheesh the sound engineer in India, following the breakup, and he offered to teach me to use an SLR camera, I was thrilled. I love taking photos (as you’d know if you follow Wonderlust_intheworld or MireilleParkerAuthor). So I spent the month practising round the suburbs of West Mumbai. My parents, by this stage, had gone home, while I stayed on to see how this all played out and it was just so awesome really, with my dream of developing creativity coming to fruition.

My mum had said that I should go into advertising as I was good with words and images but I didn’t want to sell people stuff I wasn’t passionate about or work long hours. However, Life has its way of leading us to our path. All we have to do is ask.

Because of Satheesh, I got to be the still photographer on a documentary shoot about a matrilineal society for the U.N. in Nagaland, an undeveloped area in the north east of India where tourists were normally not allowed to visit due to tribal conflict.

What I learned there is that it is really very tough working in film. We had to be up before dawn and no one cared about our breakfast. No one seemed to think about food for ten hours or so! Even so, it was an amazing experience being with these local villagers in a society where, unlike in the rest of India, women ruled. And sat around smoking home-grown tobacco and chewing betel-nut.

In Mumbai, Satheesh left me at the studio one weekend to upload old Hindhi vinyl while he went away for a shoot. To do this I’d been learning about sound and Protools, the software. Well, I got so bored that a novel started coming out of me! Words flowed, streaming through me and I just had to get it down. I spent the rest of the weekend on the laptop and, when Satheesh returned, I showed him what I’d ‘caught’.

As Life would have it, he had dated a Canadian-Indian screenwriter for three years and said that, for a first draft, it was amazing and I really had to focus on this now. So that is what I did. The all-seeing I. How magical is Life?! This is the power of mastering the mind. This is the power of tuning into instinct/ intuition. You don’t have to try to paddle upstream, As Abraham says, you only have to put your boat in the river.

I’ll be doing the 30-day Master Your Mind : Create Peace Within practice. If you’d like to join, simply follow these steps.

The Breakup That Changed my Life!

“Ask and it is given.”

~ Wayne Dyer

When I was twenty four, a breakup led me to become a photographer for the U.N., write my first novel and a whole lot of other amazing opportunities that I couldn’t have dreamt up as a kid – or as an adult. Growing up in suburbia, I dreamed of living an interesting life. Perth, my home city, has been described as a “little strip of civilisation between the desert and the sea” (Shaun Tan) and the most isolated city in the world.

At the University Of Western Australia I majored in psychology and English literature and minored in Ancient Greeks and Viking history, after failing my final history exam in high-school. I hadn’t studied but had been up all night, obsessed with a guy, consumed by him. He was my boyfriend, a cheater, and my mind was going crazy with worry. I figured I’d get into university anyway and walked out of the exam.

But this was not the breakup that changed my life. Five years later, after fifteen months in Europe and living in London with my friends, I’d been going out with an English guy and thought my confidence was pretty great for the first time in my life. I felt very attractive and, a year into our relationship, couldn’t understand when his feelings or attention seemed to wane. I tried to talk him into being more into me but when this didn’t work, I broke up with him.

That’s when my mind started going crazy. It no longer had control. So round and round it went. What if he’s with someone else? Why not drive by his place and see?! and blah blah blah on and on. Literally, going mental. And I just wanted it to Shut. Up. I just wanted peace! Then I found out he was now seeing someone else. Whoa. It hurts to think about my emotional state. But ask and it is given. 

One day I saw an ad in the newspaper for a talk on Absolute Happiness, on how to use the power of your mind. I attended the talk with the ex and my mum but I was the only one who bought the book and started applying the principles immediately. In little time I had created relative peace within and soon extraordinary things started happening.

A  few weeks later, I was on a trip with my parents to Mumbai to visit nana Hazel and, after reading Holy Cow as well, felt inspired to try out all that India had to offer. So it was that we attended a laughter’s club in Bandra West, where we were told to come back the next day too because an Australian film crew would be there filming for a documentary on happiness. That is how I met Satheesh.

The class had finished and the director said to him that he wanted to interview me, a young Indian woman, the youngest by thirty years at least. But Satheesh, the sound engineer, knew from the way I dressed and carried myself that I was no native. He came to talk to me anyway and that’s how we became friends.

I’d been a very creative child but since high-school, had had no outlet for my creativity. I craved the artist’s life, but, with several friends who were artists, was so shy about it. It had never been encouraged in me. But Satheesh was the one who had the confidence and know-how to see some talent in me. He was the first to encourage me creatively because he could.

When Satheesh saw my photos, he said I had good perspective so he taught me to use an SLR camera. In the next post I’ll share how this led to becoming a U.N. photographer and to the day at the sound studio when a book started coming out of me. This period of good fortune lasted for quite some time but as I added more to my mind power practice, things got complicated.

Then, after the brain surgery and radiation on my head for metastatic breast cancer had me feeling so down and hopeless, I realised that when I was happy and just going with the flow, not trying so hard, amazing opportunities really did come to me. And I believe it’s part of my purpose to share this with others.

Or why would this have happened?

That’s why I created Master Your Mind : Create Peace Within to help people at this time or whenever life is not going as planned. Because it’s the perfect time to consciously create and manifest.

At just 37 pages, it’s a book for busy people! Because I know how it is and it actually requires simplicity more than anything.

The Breakdown That Created My Best Mind!

‘Rule your mind or it will rule you.’

~ Horace

In case you’ve been stuck under a rock, you may not know that I had emergency brain surgery to remove a 6cm tumour in 2016, which turned out to be metastatic breast cancer. I should get the T-shirt printed. What you may not know though is how miserable and down I felt afterwards, which came as a complete shock.

Oh I was so happy to be having the surgery to put an end to the excruciating migraines – and quite high on the drugs for a bit. But afterwards, after the visitors had dried up and life went back to normal, I found myself so angry and sad. I was sad because life hadn’t turned out as planned – even though I’d tried so hard. And angry because everyone else was living their best life.

I tried to carry on as usual. Life had to play harder. I organised a Body Love workshop and that didn’t go so well. Then, one Saturday, on a day I’d promised myself I wouldn’t work, I decided to just do “one little thing”. I wanted to delete some YouTube videos I’d made and was checking them off. But when I looked up, they were all gone! All of them!!

I tried to get them back, joined chat groups and put out ads. But there was no getting them back. And I was so distraught that I just couldn’t think about it. So, finally, I gave up. 

First, for a month, I sat in bed thinking about all the errors I’d made, feeling like the biggest loser on the planet. But finally I had to pull myself together because being miserable was affecting everyone around me and I didn’t want to pull the house down.

So I started, bit by bit, and then it gained momentum. The thing was that I was grounded for the first time in my life. I couldn’t go anywhere. I just had to be here now.

Just. Be. Here. Now.

That’s what I started doing. I found ways to make myself happy in the present moment and what followed was truly the best year of my life. Because I was better.I was no longer associating with the split mind, the grass is greener mind, but making the most of my life today.

Then I discovered that what I was doing was actually the law of attraction (or art of allowing, as it’s also called). So when other people worried about having enough teaching work, I intentionally did not. When I wanted to go away again, I used these practices too

Since then it’s developed also. Now I’m sharing what I learnt in Master Your Mind : Create Peace Within. It’s a book for busy people!

It’s just 37 pages and consists of 30 daily 20-minute practices with one page of reading for each. That’s it! And there’s only one gratitude practice. I wanted to share how I tune into intuition and flow with life last year in the course (remember?). But I’m sharing it this way instead so I can 1. follow my intuition 2. Help more people and 3. so you can save $500!

Get the Master Your Mind : Create Peace Within book on Kindle.
