Positive Affirmation Card Reading 15th Oct – 22st Oct

  
So I haven’t done a positive affirmation #reading for all of us in a long time!!! So I shuffled my #miriclesnow cards and asked them for guidance this week!!

The card I picked reads: 

‘In The Midst Of A Meltdown, I BREATH Through The Discomfort And Come Out The Other Side’ 

✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

Anytime you feel any pressure or stress it’s always good to pause for a minute and take some long deep breaths in and out! When everything gets too much mentally, physically or both our minds and bodies react and we go into panic mode! The simplest things become a task and we then start to have a ‘meltdown’ we start to suffer… But taking a few minutes to ground yourself and breath will really help!! Try and refocus while letting all the tension come out of you! The situation your in wont change but how you deal and process it definitely will! Also take a few minutes to do something physically to clear your mind like having a cup of tea or read a few pages of your favourite book… ❤️💜💛💚💙 So remember this week just pause and take deep breathes when things overwhelm you and come out stronger on the other side! 

Peace and love xxx

Disabled Revolution  Anyone? 

  

  
It was a long night and day yesterday in the UK with some of us waking up to the horrid news that David Cameron, leader of the Conservative party will be our priminister again for the second term and what’s worse is that there is no coalition this time so it’s pure Tories!! As a young disabled woman living in central London this is really hard news to digest.. I have seen and experienced how much suffering sick and disabled people have gone through in the past 5 years and as a young person I have seen all the services that were helping me live a supported and progressive life vanish before my eyes… We have been treated like the lowest of low for being sick and not being ‘able’ to work! We are living in a country where people automatically believe sick/disabled people are just a drain to society  or we are all lazy and just want to live on benifits! How are we MENT to work without support or suitable jobs! 

  
I have been on benefits for maybe 7 years now.. I have never had a ‘real’ job as My illness progressed when I was 16. I would love to work but with my health conditions there is nothing out there right now that I can physically do or earn enough from. Saying all of that I don’t believe that I’m getting money from the government for not doing anything! I am a positive member of society that works as a person for the community! I volunteer as much as I  can to local charity’s, I speak to and help as many  people as I can about issues they are having! I educate people on my illnesses and disabilities, I am always there for my friends and family and most of all I am there for disabled/sick people! So many disabled/sick people really help and support each other! I think that’s the biggest ‘job’ of all! We shouldn’t be named unemployed benefit receivers  we should be called ‘undercover heros’ or ‘expert advisor to the people’ lol no one with an ‘official’ job can do the work we do to support and educate each other! I honestly think if we didn’t communicate with others or just sat in a dark room quiet it would be a very horrible and a hard world out there! We are the experts and I think its about time we get recognised for it!! We need a disabled revolution! We need to stop all this bull shit thinking others have of us! We are not benefit scroungers, we are not useless but WE ARE the soldiers that show everyone that you can do anything you put your mind to! WE ARE the fire that burns through all the bullshit and WE ARE some of the most important and influential people in society!  

  
I know it can be hard to stay positive but we need to! Even with the government we have today we are  still lucky to live in a country where  people do support us and we are lucky to have free health care and financial help! Allot of countries don’t have this! So we do need to praise the good while recognising the bad but don’t let the government make us disabled! We are amazing people with soo much knowledge and power! So I say fuck all the nagetivity and bullshit and join together to show everyone what we are made of and why we are key to the running of this country!!! We will stick together and rise together and do anything in our power to stop any injustice thrown our way! The next five years are gong to be very interesting! So lets continue to be open and out there! Fight for what you believe in and continue to reach out to everyone you can! We are the force for change and equality! We are the soldiers and most importantly we are the PEOPLE

So let your voice out in any way you can and fight for what’s right!!!

Positive Affirmation Card Reading for 5th May to the 11th May: Living

Not to well this week so sorry in advanced for the short reading! Xxx

  

The moment I begin to celebrate myself and focus on my successes is the moment I begin living’ 

❤️💚💙💜💛 
This weeks positive affirmation card reading 😊 it was a beautiful full moon last night and with that came allot of rain and wind! Something was quite soothing about the weather! (ESP when your not outside in it lol) When there’s a full moon you can soak up its energy  and really  start focusing on you! If you live in the UK, tomorrow is finally Election Day! It can be a stressful time and all we hear about is what the parties can do for us and their ideas on how we should live but the truth is we have to look at ourselves and ask what can I do for me! We are all beautiful beings and deep down we know what we need and want! But we often push our feelings and thoughts aside to focus on other things! It’s time to #pause and look at all the beauty inside you and start recognising all the amazing things you do and can do! Start focusing on YOU! Make yourself #proud by doing the things you want to do! Stand up for what you believe in and be the best you out there cause you are the only one who can do that! Once you are true to yourself and celebrate the light that shines out of you only then will you start living with confidence and #soul, YOUR SOUL!! We can be the change in any situation it all depends on how much you believe in it and yourself!! 
Love and Light to you all xxxx

Positive Affirmation Card Reading for 28th April to 4th May: Light

Sorry for the Very late post, my hay-fever was Soo crazy he past few days! Iv only stopped sneezing  now! Had such a busy day on Monday so yesterday I  just wanted to crash out!

  
For those who follow me on Instagram I Picked a card for this weeks Positive Affirmation Reading on Tuesday  morning and wrote a short reading there but was too tiered to post on here so hope you understand 🙂 

This weeks card is.. 

  

‘I Am Not The Victim; I Am The          Lighthouse!’

I didn’t really get this card when I first read it! I even naughtily shuffled the deck again and re picked but I was still drawn to this card and randomly managed to pick it up again lol law of attraction lol 

I began to stare at this card! I ignored the words and just focused of the beautiful  colours. As I closed my eyes the bright red slowly turned into Orange and yellow! I could feel the warmth of the colours wash over me. Then I could see little flashes like a camera flash but it wasn’t white! The flashes were purple and blue! It was Soo nice! I just felt so happy and relaxed! These feelings were so strong then I looked at the words on the card and immediately thought this is how I will feel if I become this beacon of light!  I also realised if I surround myself with people who project this light I will still have these wonderful feelings even if my light is dimmed or when I’m having a bad day.. 

Victim is a very strong word! When you think about being a victim you automatically think about things like being a victim of bullying or a victim of abuse etc… But in some situations we can make ourselves victims of our minds. We do this by starting to focus on something that hurt us and not letting go of it! I used to do this allot and still do… 

  
Say someone pushes into you on the street, drops your coffee but they keep walking, don’t apologise and they just ignore you completely. Most of us would automatically feel upset, hurt or angry about what has happened. We can get quite upset and start winding your self up about it but there is another way to think about it! This card is reminding  you to be of Light! Think of all the other reasons someone could have bumped into you.. They could have had so many things going on in their head that their mind was completely somewhere else or they were running late for an important appointment and didn’t even realise what they did… Being of light is about being positive and wanting to share good and loving vibes into the universe! It’s to project a pure energy that attracts positivity without you needing to do anything. Light is love and Love is what we all need!  Last week we learnt to love ourselves and be open to receiving love and this week we are now projecting love and Light! 

  
 So this week if someone hurts you try and resolve it in your mind with positive thinking even if they were totally in the wrong send positive light  to them! By you doing that you will shine so brightly and wash away any negative thoughts and feelings!! When you become the ‘lighthouse’ good things will come to you and you will also attract others whom you can guide with your light😊 

 
This weeks song for the reading is… 

Rihanna- Dimonds click here to watch it 😊

  
Apologies again for the very late post! Please follow me on Instagram as my uploads are faster on there also I keep Instagram updated every day! 

Won’t post till next week as I’m still not well… 

Hope you all enjoy the rest of the week and the long weekend (if you live in the UK)

Positive Affirmation Card Reading! For 21st April to 27th April : LOVE

Its Soo sunny today 😊! I woke up at 9am but lets not get that confused with actually getting out of bed lol! I was still in bed at 12pm stretching and waking my body up! I felt like playing Drakes latest album to wake up to today! It’s getting me really excited for wireless festival! 

   

I have to go to the dentist today to get my mouth guard! I’m also taking grandma to the hospital to pick up her new hearing aids! Hopefully her hearing will be improved and she will be able to be herself again!

❤️💜💙💚

Ok so it’s time for this weeks inspirational affirmation! 

After praying and also sitting in the sun on my bed I picked this weeks card 😊 

  
The card reads 

‘I Am Ready To Recieve Love’ 

This card couldn’t come at a better time!! Summer is starting and we want to get out and about! We want to be able to sit on a park bench so the sun hits our skin or we want to try and be more active because we became hermits during winter! Allot of us tend to find winter really hard and lose allot of love and care for ourselves because we unconsciously close up to love!

Being ready to give love is quite easy! Most of us do loving things with out blinking an eye! Complimenting somone is loving, smiling at a stranger is loving, buying your parents a gift is loving, making food for your friends is loving etc… But sometimes we are not READY to Recieve love because we feel bad! And when you have a chronic illness being ready to accept love on top of physical/mental support can seem over baring or we feel like people do so much For us already that we forget we need love just as much as everything else. 

Should I let you in on a secret? We ARE READY for love! We were all born ready! From the moment we were created we grew because of love! We just need to accept it as one of the most natural things that can happen to us! So are you ready? – ‘Yes we were BORN READY!’ 

Receive is an amazing word! Sometimes we get the word confused with taking! To receive is to accept what is coming to you but with no ill or insecure feeling afterwords! When we receive our bodies and souls will react! Receiving means we are open to obsorbing what is being presented to us, and in this case it’s love! 

Love comes in many forms and to receive it is to accept it! We have established that we are ready for love and that receiving it is as important as giving love! I know as a spoonie I sometimes feel like I don’t need it and I need stregth instead so i can keep strong! But I got it all wrong! Love comes to me in all forms and wether it’s from a friend hugging me or the checkout guy in Tesco helping me pack  my bags! It’s it continually being presented to me and I learnt that when I accept the loving actions presented to me I automatically grew stronger! 

So this week make sure you tell yourself 

‘I Am Ready To Recieve Love’ 

Also keep an eye out for All the loving things that come your way this week and write them down! I bet you will be surprised how many things come up 😊 

The song that played in my head when I picked this card was: 

Katrina  & The Waves – Walking on Sunsshine

Positive Affirmation Card Reading! For 14th April to 20th April Happines  

So over the weekend I bought a set of inspirational affirmation cards by Gabrielle Bernstein! She has a book called ‘miracles now’ which I still need to buy! You can use these cards like a oracle deck 😊 I have grown so attached to them from the moment I opened the box! They just get their message across loud and clear! And they are Soo pretty to look at! I’m not sure if they are available online yet but will let you know! 

 Edit   
 I am a firm believer of Angels and have really upped my game in connecting with my angels and anything spiritual that will better my life and the life of others! 

I will write a post about my spiritualrange soon 😊 But in the mean time I will try and upload a random card after meditating every week so we can stay positive together! Or I will do an angel card reading for all my followers to help us stay connected 🙂 Make sure you check out my Instagram to keep in contact with me daily! 

   
 

After my morning meditation I asked the universe and my spiritual guides to help me pick a card for my Findingmyrange family today! So I shuffled the 62-card deck, prayed and picked a card I am drawn to! 

So today’s card is: 

 Edit   
Happiness is something we cannot live without! When I don’t feel happy my body physically reacts! Happiness really helps mentally and physically when you have a chronic health condition! Every living creature on earth has a right to happiness! So today think about what makes you happy! Try and write a list of things that make you happy then do a few of those things today! 😊

CLEAN HAIR LIFE HACKS

Hair comes in all shapes and forms! Some have long hair some have green hair but we all have one thing in common!! washing our hair!                   Well most of us like washing our hair 👇👇👇 except for Luke of xfactor last year!! 



I love washing my hair! Honestly the shampoo smell and then the silky conditioner!!! It makes you feel soo refreshed, it smells great and it really feels like your washing all your pain away!! But for thoes of us with EDS, Fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions, washing your hair can be the hardest thing esp when it’s long hair like mine!!!



Currently my hair is just above my lower back! So you can’t see all of it in the photo, I’m going to get it cut soon lol but iv always had my hair long and  having long hair with pain is not the best combination.. There are allot of days when your too weak or tiered to have a shower, or you have had a dislocation and the worst thing would be to wash your hair!! 

CLEAN HAIR LIFE HACKS are the only way I have managed to keep and maintain my long hair so here are some hacks that help me 😊

DRY SHAMPOO 

Dry shampoo is a miricle worker!! Everyone needs this!! There are soo many types of dry shampoo and for different types of hair! They also all give your hair volume!! 

Batiste Dry Shampoo Aerosol  



Im sure allot of you have heard about this brand and their range! I think this is the first dry shampoo I tried about 5 years ago! Back then they had a tiny selection but now they got a huge array of products with amazing smells and they even have ones for dark hair! 

  1. So brush you hair! Then shake the can like you would with hairspray
  2. Now hold it about 10cm away from your scalp and spray where need it! I normally spray on my crown 
  3. It comes out as a greyish powder!  Now it’s times to use your fingers to massage it in! This will absorb the excess oil! You can also brush it out! I normally turn my head upside down and rub my roots this creates more volume 
  4. Don’t spray on the ends of your hair just the scalp 
  5. Replete if needed

My fav from this range are these three!! They smell like holidays lol 



Herbal Essences

Soo many other hair companies have now got a dry shampoo range! I’v stoped using the Batiste range recently because im inlove with the dry shampoo by Herbal Essences!! It smells just like their shsmpoos. I literally spray it all over my scalp and rub it in! You can get mini cans for your bag to!



VO5

Another great product is the VO5 Plump It Up Dry Back Combing Spray now technically this isn’t advertised as a dry shampoo but it sure works like one!! I love using this on nights out! I use the spray before I curl my hair so I know what the volume is like! Again you use it in the same way but this one will give you soo much volume so you don’t really want to brush it out!! 



TRESEMME

For thoes of you with wavey or curly hair I would be cautious about the above as it may make your hair static or frizzy but don’t fear I found a really nice dry shampoo mouse by Tresemme it’s called Instant Refresh



  1. So shake the bottle gently to mix the product 
  2. This comes with a pump! I use one pump at a time! It comes out like a wet mouse 
  3. Scrunch this in the ends of your hair and even your roots! 
  4. It smells refreshing 
  5. It does make your hair a little wet but give it 5 minutes and  will dry! 

I love this product as you can use ur everywhere! It does not give you volume but it makes your hair look like it’s just been washed! I tend you use this allot in the summer and when my hair is Curley or wavey 

TALCUM POWDER 

Good old baby powder!!! what would we do without it!! It’s got a comforting smell and can be used for soo many things! If you don’t have dry shampoo at home or want a cheap alternative then it’s time to get the talc out!! 

Excess oil from you scalp and dirt make your hair greasy! So using Talc really help absorb the oils! 

  1. Brush your hair 
  2. Take a tiny pinch of talc on your fingers and rub it in the areas of your scalp that need it! 
  3. The brush it out or keep massaging it in so you can no longer see it! 
  4. Be careful not to put to much as it’s very noticeable ESP on darker hair 



That’s all I have for now and will update if I find anything new! If all fails invest in a good hat!! Lol 



Please share any advice you have!! Take a look at more life hacks here 😊

Let’s talk ‘LIFE HACKS’

What are Life Hacks you may ask? It’s a list of things that help me through life!



I suffer from a few medical conditions and one of the hardest to manage is my EDS and Fibromyalgia. Living with so many complex conditions can be very tricky and it can feel impossible at times. I was 16 and in the middle of GCSEs when my health deteriorated! My life turned upside-down and I didn’t recognise my body anymore I just felt lost! I went from going out with friends and family to having to stay at home or in hospital all day!! I could no longer do small things like painting my nails or making a cup of tea! Back then I didn’t think I could do anything independently anymore! EVERYTHING SEEMED LOST! 



You will be glad to hear that things have changed soo much! And I am no longer that scared and lost teenager I once was! like soo many of you I have gone through  lots of challenges and changes but for the better! I have learnt to pick myself up and I came to the realisation that If I want to see a change I need to be that change!!



I am now 26 and living in tempory (been here 4 years lol) supported housing two roads down from my parents. I am 100% more clued up about my health conditions and have oblivious grown up allot!! I now know and understand that life goes on and you just have to adapt to it! Anyone can do anything they want as long as you’re smart about it and have self belief! 



I have learnt loads on my journey so far especially when it comes to making sure I live my life to the fullest ontop of keeping a healthy balance between my life and my health conditions! But I’m telling you it’s soo hard ESP in the beginning! But I’m trying my best a and I couldn’t live like this now without my ‘life hacks’

LIFE HACKS
