This is the first giveaway I have ever done on my blog, it is a thank you for following me and my blog and commenting and supporting me.

The book is precious so precious and soooo deep that I really want it to go to somone who will love it, understand it and appreciate the gift of the wisdom in this book.  For me this is a gift from  my heart to yours and it is so precious,  I want it to be read, experienced to be life changing and loved and re-read.

Because I think it is so precious, I include an audio of me reading bit of it.  Now, you have to forgive the sound quality, my terrible terrible reading and my voice.  This is the first time I have ever done this and I don’t know how to edit.  I sound so young , my voice is awful, but trust me I am not as young as I sound I even have a few grey hairs (eek – lol). 

Anyway, if you go past the bad sound and my voice and hear the words, then you can decide if you want this book and if you want to enter the give away.  The link works I have tried it, you might have to click it twice or something, but please hear it.  The audio is about 12 minutes long.   I am very sorry my reading is terrible  – I recorded this 3 times and it is still terrible.

  1. What a lovely idea Bella. I’m sorry I couldn’t reply earlier – we were away camping, with no internet access. I’ve answered most of the questions but I couldn’t listen to the audio as it won’t play anything for me..
    Here goes:……

    What is true happiness?
    Being at peace in our inner and outer world and appreciating the beauty of the World we occupy.
    Where do you find your happiness?
    Spending time with my family, noticing the small details in the natural world and remembering how miraculous life really is..
    How do manage your waste thoughts now?
    Self hypnosis
    What are your thoughts on the Divine? If you have any at all?
    I don’t follow a religion but I do have a strong belief that there is a spirit beyond what we see and that our lives are a learning ground.
    What would owning a book like this allow you to do in terms of changing your life?
    Open my mind to new possibilities
    From the audio I created what becomes self-defeating ?
    The audio wont come up for me Bella – it shows on the page but with zero minutes..
    From the audio when we are filled with ‘x’ then falsehood has  no place.  What is the ‘x’? – as above
    From the audio who is the jewel? – as above..
    What do like about my blog and why do you follow my blog?
    I love being inspired by your blog Bella, your heart shines through the pages and posts..
    What don’t you like about my blog?  I want some feedback and it won’t affect your chance of winning. Seriously – I’ve never found anything about your blog that I didn’t like..
    How do you deal with waste  thoughts ?
    I have learned to take control of my ‘negative committee’ better in recent years. I definitely recognise sooner when those voices are starting to try and take control.
    What makes you unhappy and how do you get yourself out to that? I feel so sad about the loss of precious lives with the current terrorist atrocities around the world, often in the name of religion (which isn’t the case, just people using religion for their own purpose..) and also the epidemic use of drugs which I’m seeing increasingly has become a serious problem affecting both the individuals taking them and the people around them.. it’s so sad.. Personally, I feel blessed to have a lovely family and when I’m feeling low, spending time with my 2 gorgeous granddaughters reminds me that the simple pleasures in life are often what brings us ‘true happiness’…

  2. What is true happiness?

    True happiness is really being in the moment, free of thought, feelings and action. At these points, the body, mind and soul are fully aligned. It is said through yoga that we can reach the mind. When we reach the mind, and the mind is still and stable, then the true capacity of human happiness is possible.

    Where do you find your happiness?

    Nature. On the beach or in the mountains. When I am free, flowing and present. When I am one with the magnificence and perfection of nature.

    How do manage your waste thoughts now?

    Through meditation.

    What are your thoughts on the Divine? If you have any at all?

    The divine is the soul and the heaven within. It is the peace of mind that we find when we transcend either in meditation or deep in the heart of nature.

    What would owning a book like this allow you to do in terms of changing your life?

    This wonderful book would be a source of inspiration, something that I could turn to, pick up and read to give me strength to deal with whatever is going on in my life at the moment.

    From the audio I created what becomes self-defeating ? [I didn’t get time to listen to the audio properly, I was commuting when I wrote this, so I will try later]

    From the audio when we are filled with ‘x’ then falsehood has no place. What is the ‘x’?

    From the audio who is the jewel?

    What do like about my blog and why do you follow my blog?

    What don’t you like about my blog? I want some feedback and it won’t affect your chance of winning.

    I don’t like to pass judgement. I think your blog is great – from the heart, authentic and I can hear your passion and voice.

    How do you deal with waste thoughts ?

    Through meditation. Through meditation these thoughts dissolve so I am become truly present.

    What makes you unhappy and how do you get yourself out to that?

    When I become attached to the future, let my expectations get on top of me or let my anxieties get the better of me. I deal with it by lots of exercise (yoga, pilates etc…) as well as meditation. At these points, I am more present.

  3. Hi Bella, I’m sorry that I didn’t get a chance to listen to your audio properly. I was on the gatwick express and it was interrupted. I will listen to it later. Nice to hear your voice though :). I like the giveaway idea, very inspiring for something that is very special to your heart. All the best, Scott

  4. Dear All, So the giveaway entrance ends tonight at Midnight and I am going on wordpress midnight meaning the change of day. I will update this post with the word CLOSED and the fun of choosing winners begins. It is not going to be easy, and as this book is not available on Amazon making it more special, I want to provide a few alternative books for everyone to buy themselves, so that way it becomes win/win a bit. I think the announcement of the winner will be either on Sunday or Next Tuesday, because it is going to take me a bit of time to research books and explain my selection madness. So, I hope you don’t mind hanging in a bit longer. I wanted to do it sooner, but life always gets hectic when you don’t want it. Eitherway you guys will know soonish.

    Regards your blogging Friend Bella

What is true happiness?

True Happiness can be described in many ways. Any moment in time can be genuine happiness but the greatest joy I’ve found comes from being in peace with one self and everyone around us.

    2.Where do you find your happiness

I find my happiness all around me. From listening to may favoirte songs, to spending time with the ones I love. Doing what I love and helping people brings me the most happiness.

    3.How do manage your waste thoughts now?

I’m still learning how to but for what I have learned, I focus on the positive. I clear out my mind doing meditation or just taking deep breaths. 
 
    4.What are your thoughts on the Divine? If you have any at all?

My thoughts on the Divne are endless. However I am only certain of one thing. That is, the love I have for him and the love he has for me. I hear he is everywhere and I do believe that but I also believe he is in me. Not only in me but in each one of us. I am also uncertain if this divine is a male or female but since I’ve know him as a male my whole life I reffer to God as He. Hence, I’ve learned through Dwayne Dyer and other spiritual teacher, the real God has no gender or name. I may be completely wrong but those are my thoughts. In my head it all makes sense as you can call me M, MoMo, Mon, Moni, Monique, and I’ll still respond and be the same person.

5.What would owning a book like this allow you to do in terms of changing your life?
    
Owning a book like this would empower me. At this moment it would be great to have a book like this because it would give me the positive, uplifting outlook I need in my life right now. I know this book will take my mind on a journey it desperately wants to go on. 

    6.What do like about my blog and why do you follow my blog?
    
What I love about your blog is how uplifting and spirtual it is. Being that you teach about what you practice, it allows me to learn and embrace this positivitty you radiate Bella. I love learning about meditation and you have the best commentary’s!

    7.What don’t you like about my blog?  I want some feedback and it won’t affect your chance of winning.

Your blog is one of my favorite, I read yours more than others beacause I know when I come to your blog I with feel a warmth of inspiration. The only opinion as a reader I can give is maybe less quotes on one post? I find myself skimming through them when theres more than 5 on one post, because the ones you do post at the beginning I want to observe and think about the authors words. In a way I’m making only a few special.

    8.How do you deal with waste  thoughts ?

If it something as silly as me being worried about something or pondering about something someone said that slightly offended me I stop thinking about it and think about something positive or I watch a show or listen to a podcast. If it a situation that happened but theres nothing I can do to change it, I make peace with the situation by expressing myself or pondering on the thought acknowledging it then After I move forward searching for positive thoughts and actions.
 
9.What makes you unhappy and how do you get yourself out to that?
    
What makes me unhappy is feeling stress or losing someone. Feeling stressed is an easy one, I make a plan on whatever is bother me of how im going to get out of it or I mediate or think positive thoughts. Losing someone I love is the hard one. It usually takes a few days to get out of it. I let myself feel sadness but every moment I also try to make myself stronger. I Listen to music that helps me deal, I write, it talk about it, I don’t talk, I exercise and focus on self love. I think of life and realize theres a great big world for me discover and conquore. I find my happy again, even if I have to rebuild every piece of me to create a new mosaic.
