Over the years, I have come across, used, and sometimes invented ‘Life Tools’ that make the journey easier and more enjoyable. I decided to collate them all together many years ago to have them handy in one Little Book of Life Tools for reference, and also as a gift that I can share with my friends, family, clients or readers. That way it’s also portable for travellers and nomads like me. I have continued to add useful tools to it ever since, which have all been tried and tested in advance by me and enhanced my life.
It’s the kind of book I wish I’d been given as a child. I didn’t grow up with this knowledge, (but then I wouldn’t have had all the fun of discovering them myself, and experimenting with these techniques.)
There’s something for every situation, and I hope it shows clearly that there’s always hope and we are more powerful than we sometimes think and never alone.
My underlying assumption is that everything is energy and that our thoughts and intentions direct that energy and create. Intention is everything so the intention behind each tool is key. Any activity, from lighting a candle or drinking water to going to work or running a marathon can turn into magic when done consciously, from the heart with positive intent, making life more purposeful, fun, and sacred.
I use these tools all the time. They are almost second nature to me now, and they have unquestionably made my life easier, and more magical than it would be without them. My hope is that by sharing them with you, your life will be improved and your journey be blessed with much light, love, truth, protection, health, success, peace and joy and oneness. If even one person’s life is improved by this book, it will have been worth creating it.
Pick any tool that resonates with you or one for a particular need, or read through them all, experiment with those you like the most, ignore those that don’t grab you as they are all simply friendly suggestions, and choose some favourites which might become regular ‘Life Tools’ for you. I hope you find some inspiration here, to use during good times or bad. Enjoy!
Where appropriate, I have added an applicable yoga tip and essential oil tip to the end of each life tool.
