Creating Daily Habits: Entrepreneurs Daily Grind

You better be passionate about what you do, because if you’re not, it will fuck with your head. It is probably the only possible addiction that you can get away with because it is apparently politically correct. (what?)

Planning and Goal Setting Come From the Execution of Daily Habits

To stop yourself from burning out and fucking yourself over, you need to execute a general daily plan and set of guidelines.

Try your best to make it simple, painless, effortless and the easiest way to get everything done. You have to just simply keep on working on it.

I did this little meme up for you as a reminder of what to put into every single day.

Remember, work … work … and that rest! is so important.

How to Remove a Ghost

Is Your House Haunted? Here’s How to Treat It


Paranormal Activity, White Noise, Poltergeist and The Blair Witch Project all focus on supernatural activity and hauntings. They are loosely based on true stories, and whilst created for the purposes of entertaining the masses, for those who live in real life hauntings, the experiences are both terrifying and distressing.


Symptoms of a haunting range from unexplained cuts and bruises on the body, sleep paralysis, waking while feeling like you are being choked, having strange noises occur around the house, having objects disappear and feeling like you are being watched. Some people report strange smells emanating around their house, and in particularly bad cases of hauntings, furniture is rearranged, objects go missing, electronic devices turn on and off, and pictures get thrown down from the walls. The environment of a home or building that is haunted can feel stifling, with the air heavy and leave a very bad feeling in a person.


When a home has had a lot of conflict, negative interactivity or some violence happen in a house, or people have performed seances, or used ouija boards, or opened up spiritual portals, this can be a magnet for both spirits and demonic type entities. If people have performed magick rituals involving some kind of sacrifice or the invoking of spirits, this can also be an invitation for hauntings.


Wiccans or people who practice magickal arts will cast circles in order to contain the energy of a spirit, but if they have forgotten to close the circle, this leaves the entity with an open doorway in order to manifest and cause havoc in a home, particularly if it is not wanted by new residents of a home.


Seances and the use of ouija boards, and using tarot cards without proper protections in a home whilst using these devices is also an invitation to spirits, particularly malevolent energies. If protection is utilised, such as remembering to cast a circle, to also close a circle, the burning of white candles and incense, and mental imagery prior to use of divination tools of a golden rain of protection, then these entities are repelled from entering.


Items in the home may be haunted if these started suddenly, and things began to become disturbing in your home. If you have been to a flea market or other second hand store, a ghost may be attached to something that it loved dearly. The best way to detect paranormal infestations is to keep a log of which room attracts the most haunting type activity. If you have recently bought an item into your home that belonged to another person, and since then strange phenomenon has been happening, the object that is infested with spirits will need to be cleansed or disposed of in order to eradicate the malevolent spirits.


It is worth carrying out a paranormal investigation if you suspect that there are evil or negative spirits or energies at work disturbing the residents in the house. A small group of people is best for an investigation, consider a variety of divining tools, including pendulums, electronic recorders, EM energy detectors, cameras, ouija boards and divining rods. Ghosts are unpredictable, so do not immediately expect that they will be present, but be open minded. If no activity occurs, do not immediately assume that no activity happens. A ghost or hauntings due to their random natures may not occur on one particular investigation, but log everything and do interview the household residents.


There are international paranormal investigation agencies, often available free of charge, that can be found on directory listings such as These investigation groups use an array of monitoring equipment and often work in conjunction with clairvoyant mediums in order to verify and document a suspect haunting. They eliminate all other possible reasons for strange activities, and once these have been outruled as a cause, paranormal activity is left as a likely cause.


If a person believes that they have a haunting, and has had an investigative team in to verify and document the haunting, it is possible to eliminate the haunting and get the malevolent spirits to move on. Both religious organisations and clairvoyant psychics are professionally available either for a donation or a prescribed fee, depending on who you contract. If this is not an option, a do-it-yourself option might be effective.


If you do choose the do-it-yourself option, here are some time tested, proven and highly effective ways of improving the feel of your house, removing malevolent energies, and to promote a feeling of calm and wellbeing in your home:


  1. American Indians have used white sage in their spirit ceremonies for thousands of years, cleansing people and places of all evil types of forces. White sage can be purchased from crystal stores or online spiritual supplies stores. It is simply set alight, the flame burn out, and the smoke waved around each person and room in the home. When you have finished using the smudging technique of the white sage, allow it to sit in a flame-proof pot in a bowl of water, and allow the smoke to go out by itself.

‘The use of dried white sage however, is a 2,000 year old Indigenous American practice. The shamans used dried sage plants on their fires as a ritual of calling upon ancestral spirits. Any conflict, anger, illness or evil was absorbed by the sage smoke to be released or cleansed from the energy field of a person.’


  1. Burn a lot of incense to clear the space in your home. Incense helps to remove negative psychic energies and to promote feelings of wellbeing and calm. The use of crystals placed around the home may also help to cleanse the aura within the home. Crystals have a particular geometric arrangement in them that casts an electrical quantum field that affects the energy of a home and helps align it to certain energies.

Incense is used for meditation purposes, to create a sacred space where … people can develop a sense of calm. It creates a serene atmosphere in which we can live, create and experience joy. Both crystals and incense can help maintain a peaceful and clean energy feel throughout the home.


  1. Detect all spiritual portals, and close them off performing circle closing ceremonies, so that entities are prevented from entering into a space. The Hadron Collider has opened some very strange portals, and it is believed that it is responsible for increasing the amount of supernatural activity around the planet. Harvard University theorist, Lisa Randall talks about the opening of spirit portals to other dimensions through the use of the Hadron Collider:

‘…an extra dimension may exist close to our familiar reality, hidden except for a bizarre sapping of the strength of gravity as we see it.’

If physicists are having concerns about the opening of portals, then this provides a scientific link to the need to close portals that have been opened by people for various means around suspected hauntings.

Stephanie Relfe, writing about spirital portals says, ‘… There is a reason why the level of evil is increasing on this planet. Different entities and aliens of a level of creepiness and evil impossible for humans to imagine, have been invading earth in increasing numbers.

They have been able to do this because humans have helped them either unknowingly or because they got tricked into it, by opening portals to the different universes and dimensions where the evil ones live.’

When a portal is suspected, then use pendulums, divining rods, and the use of a psychic medium to move the spirits on, and close those portals, then perform a blessing in the house.


  1. Use white candles to banish harmful energies every time somebody enters your home. If you have visitors that carry with them negative energies or hauntings, or have malevolent intentions, and you have not yet detected these, burning a white candle before, during and after they leave will alleviate any negative entities or energy that has come into your home. Spreading white salt across your black door is also useful, and if you keep attracting people to your home who are negative, using a floor wash that is a spiritually cleansing floor wash such as Chinese Floor Wash with van van oil will help to push negative energies out of your home.

Clutter and dirt also can cause low energy, depression and anxiety. A clean home can help eradicate low vibrational energies, so ensuring that your home is regularly cleaned, decluttered and free of infestations such as pests, mosquitos, flies and other sundry hindrances keeps the energy in your home clean and free of negative residue. It also helps to raise the vibration of the residents in the home, and forms a psychic protection.


  1. Use blessed sea-salt and holy water to cleanse and protect your house. A priest can bless salt, candles and consecrate water for the purposes of cleansing your house at home. The Catholic Church authorises priestly blessings for homes, or you can take these items to be blessed by a priest.

When any of the faithful wish to mark their moving into a new home with a religious celebration, the parish priest (pastor) and his associates should gladly cooperate.’ (Catholic News Agency).

If a priest has been invited to cleanse the home, follow through with his instructions, or if you have taken sea-salt, holy water and blessed candles to the priest, these can be taken home, and words of blessing spoken over the home. This will work regardless of what belief that a person adheres to, whether pagan or otherwise.

‘All negativity is now banished from this place, only people with loving thoughts and intentions may enter or dwell herein. This place is claimed only for light, laughter and loving hearts, and positive warm and compassionate peaceful thoughts. All else is banished, so be it, so it is.’

Blessed sea salt, blessed candles and holy water is available for purchase if you do not wish to have to go visit a priest to have the items blessed and prefer to do this privately. When you do perform a blessing, sprinkle the salt and holy water across all the doorways and windows, and burn the candle from room to room. Also spread holy water in the corners of the rooms, as this may be where dark spirits lurk.


  1. Use a clairvoyant psychic to cleanse and purge your house of all negative spirits and malevolent energies. Ensure that the person is a professional who has good reviews, and has had experience. It is possible to seek a metaphysics practitioner who is professionally trained to heal both people and geographic locations and objects, and these people are often affiliated with spiritual organisations, and have had professional and reputable experience. Check the person’s credentials, and ask them where they have performed previous cleansings, or if they come with recommendations.

When you bring the clairvoyant psychic into your home, they will bring the required tools and equipment, and simply follow their instructions as to how to prevent further manifestations. These cleansings can also be performed after periods of difficulty, purchasing of a new property or land, building a house, or a renovation, or moving house into a new rental. Any of these types of activities can stir up ghostly manifestations. A clairvoyant psychic can eradicate the portals, and urge the spirits to move on.


Haunting experiences can be devastating for the people who experience them, and despite the taboo nature of the topic, and reluctance of people in general society to speak about hauntings, these are real, and they have been scientifically documented. Professional spiritual metaphysical practitioners, clairvoyant psychics, and ordained priests and ministers are the third parties to seek should you have any concerns about malevolent spiritual activities in your home. Performing regular cleansing rituals on both yourself, your family and your home is recommended, and if you are seriously distressed or disturbed over this, consulting with a professional counsellor, as well as a paranormal investigation unit is strongly recommended. … space.html … ive-energy … 82527.aspx … cleansing/

Getting More Work – Freelance Work Challenges

So, I signed up for Dr Joe Vitale’s Remembering Process course. In it he talks about journalling what you remember being in your future. You have to do the course if you want to keep on progressing towards what can be.

It is indeed a process, and since reading the book, The One Thing, I have settled in my mind that what is the one thing I can do this day in order to progress my life. There are a few things I attend to daily, and it has removed some of the process of procrastination.

There is the principle of do it now, and also when a certain group of clients have work finish off, and projects get completed, it is important to start sourcing other work. Today that is what I have been doing, making applications for work in freelance in a variety of different areas.

I have picked up some freelance writing jobs for copywriting, for feature article writing, and blog marketing. I do a bit of social media promotion, ad marketing and creating digital videos.

I am learning the subtle art of budgeting too!

I worked out what my expenses were, and I think that I have to hit some income targets every week, due to being on the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme, I can earn a certain amount of money and it is there to assist my business become viable. I am working towards those income targets, and that is where fishing for clients becomes really essential.

Being an entrepreneur is indeed always a challenge, and there are so many courses going on how to make money. I do sign up and pay for courses from people like Dr Joe Vitale, because his story resonates and is real. He makes a lot of sense, and how he does things is unconventional but it seems to work.

Earning money is really about setting yourself free from your own limitations and understanding your own self-worth. I did some free work for a client today, and she and I have the understanding that we take care of one another when we can.

I also am working now at a second job, doing telephone counselling, and it is actually pretty awesome. Something I really enjoy. The money from the second job goes into savings. So, I fished around for a bunch of clients today, and followed up on some old leads. There will be some work there for it next week, and the budget as it came in, it got allocated for savings, bills and other things like necessities.

I have three children, so I have to budget for their provision as well. This weekend we are celebrating Halloween, and the party budget has been allocated. I have started developing the habit of putting money into various places where it is needed, and I think that it is coming together a lot better. I am sure it will all work out and I am grateful. Grateful for my clients, grateful for working from home, and grateful for having a second source of income in order to build savings, and grateful for things like the remembering course.

How to Manifest Anything You Want

Ever been confused by The Secret, I read the entire series, and it was awesome, and I am grateful for it.

Wish Granted is one of the first books I have read (and published) that lays out a step-by-step guide in to how to manifest things that you want in your life.

Some of the things I have encountered are:

  • Being grateful for your life the way that it currently is, and this brings more good
  • Creating the space in your life for good things to show up (like demonstrating to the universe that you have packed some boxes ready to move, or made space in your closet for a man)
  • Using a vision board
  • Using mantras
  • Massive action – meaning that you focus on taking inspired action through your intuition as to how to ensure that what you want comes about. If you are looking for a new car, start saving for it, or if you want to lose weight, buy smaller clothes, and seek dietary and exercise advice
  • Goal setting
  • It is about how you put manifestation into action
  • For me, with my house, I have driven up the street, chosen a block, started saving money into a savings account, looked for solicitors for conveyancing, found an architect … the universe will bring those things to you. Take care of what you have, and in doing so you will be brought more.

Decorating the Rental

So, I checked out Rose Wholesale, and they had these amazing wall tapestries … the rental house I am in is a cute little place, but my bedroom really needs a makeover.

So, post divorce and life being back on the mend, I fully want to build a place. My house is going to be pretty epic; it’s a loft home designed by an architect.

The bed I have in my room I picked up off a second hand site, and paid it off over a few weeks. It is a shabby chic style hardwood white bed and has four posts and being knocked around suits the beach style.

I bought a white locker from Kmart, and I am going to change to curtains and add some rugs to the floor to make a little more chic. This week has seen me tidy up a bit more, and I submitted my Master’s Thesis hypothesis about how powerful it is to set your intention, and the benefit you get from setting up a sacred space. This week I got my apothecary oils and perfume from The Art of The Root.

Burning incense helps clear away negative thoughts and angst from the atmosphere in your home, and every morning I have been engaging in a candle meditation in order to set my intention better for the day. Things have been going pretty well, and in a structured order that I am happy with.

So, I’ll update my bedroom when it all arrives, but so far I am pretty happy with The Art of the Root to help create some ambience, and looking forward to what Rose Wholesale have to send. I spotted some floor cushions on another website that I wouldn’t mind, but all in good time.

How to Save on Groceries

I purchased Jodie Allen’s book on saving money on groceries recently, The $50 Grocery Shop. I know she started the Stay at Home Mum Blog a number of years ago and has been a wild success. I belong to The Cheapskates Club, a membership club on how to save money. I am always keen to be frugal, but I have needed to develop the habit of saving something from every single pay. Managing a freelancing business, and paying for children’s food, education, healthcare and other entertainment can be expensive, so I am keen to follow an economical but nutritious eating plan.

I went grocery shopping this morning for a few things, and itemised what I needed before I went. As you can see, I went to the “expensive” local supermarket just here on the island, and bought generic things where I could. It came to about $40, and I have posted the receipt here.

This shopping list more or less comes out of Jodie Allen’s book, and already having had a few meals in the freezer, I have the ability to do some bulk cooking and some other things in order to make life a little easier with children.

My Significant Other, he put me onto Cheese Toasties, and he does his in the frypan with cheese and butter, and I have become somewhat fond of these. In the morning with pod coffee (one of life’s little luxuries); and after meditation, the day is set.

Frying up a cheese toastie Jason style =)

Tonight I will be making tuna patties out of mashed potato, and mixed frozen vegetables. I will serve these with coleslaw, and it will mean I have something to eat tomorrow while I go to class.

Here are some other tips I have found to make groceries go a little further, particularly with picky children.

  • Have single serve containers of pre-cooked meals ready to defrost in the microwave, also good when you are a single mother and need to eat after work or a long day, or not everyone wants to eat the same thing
  • Ensure you have a crate of bulk milk from Aldi or generic ones from Woolworths or Coles, milk is a complete protein food, so is good to have on standby, if you are devoid of everything else, drink milk * watch for lactose intolerance
  • Always have eggs on standby, they can make a meal, be put in a cake, fried for breakfast, made into an omelette, or a Japanese pancake (okonomyaki)
  • Have some basic appliances like a stand mixer, blender, stick blender, food processor and some other items like a slow cooker to make life a little easier
  • Ensure you have plenty of frozen dinner containers (I buy mine from Kmart and they are dishwasher and freezer and microwave proof)
  • For bulk fruit, peel it, stew it and turn it into really delicious strudels or pastries for something different
  • For citrus, juice it and freeze it
  • Turn overripe bananas into smoothies
  • Before your vegetables get really sad, put them into a soup, with some chicken thigh fillets and stock, then divvy up and freeze as easy meals
  • Snacks such as wafer biscuits and other things can be found on the lower shelves of the supermarket, also look for day-old bread and buns to eat, some second hand charity stores offer free bread
  • If necessary call the local charity to get a food hamper
  • I keep frozen vegetables on hand to ensure nutrition
  • I often have long life apple juice as a treat, as well as water, herbal tea, and coffee
  • Avoid sugar when you can, your immune system will vastly improve
  • Go to mutual friends houses for coffee rather than eating out at a cafe
  • Ensure you eat before you go grocery shopping
  • Put food away as soon as you come home to avoid food poisoning
  • Do once a month cooking
  • Have an idea of a menu so that you don’t have to think everything through all the time
  • Some tinned meats are acceptable for meals and casseroles
  • Turn leftovers into pet food
  • Encourage your children to help you cook and clean in the kitchen, it encourages them to be less fussy, and to also appreciate your effort more.
