Taking control of your life

Taking control of your life

In a draining society of materialism and unattainable expectation, a striking commonality amongst many is a loss of a sense of control over oneself. Australian Bush Flower Essences are here to assist and guide you to an elevated level of self-control and awareness. Below we detail the benefits of heightening the control of your life and the small steps to achieve it. 

Why You Should Be in Control of Your Life

‘Taking control of your life’ is to exercise personal leadership - a practice rife amongst those who prioritise self-care and personal development. It enriches you with a greater sense of clarity and confidence, ultimately enabling you to be more productive in achieving your personal goals and being truly happy. 

Steps Towards Taking More Control 

Set Yourself Achievable Goals 

No matter how small your day to day goals may seem, completing them will enrich you with a great sense of achievement. Goals that can contribute to feeling more in control of your life include bettering your physical health, performing well at work, staying on top of personal errands and socialising with friends and family. Individually, each of the above goals will have a positive impact on your day today. Completing simple, but effective, goals can make you feel more in control of your life; establishing a routine is a great way to get started and to hold yourself accountable. This overall sense of achievement will undoubtedly enrich you with confidence; opening new doors and presenting an array of opportunities to you. 

The Power of a Mentor

Your energy flows where your attention goes.It is easy to focus on our flaws and mistakes and be discouraged, however a better way is to focus on our strengths and positive side. A powerful way to progress forward with control of our life is identifying people who are three, five or ten steps ahead of us where you would like to be, (not 100 steps ahead.) this could be a good boss, a health coach, a good parent, we can learn from them and they can inspire positive changes in our daily life. Finding a life coach or mentor can help take you to the next level in your life, even for a short time can change your life for the long term.

Manage Your Emotions and Expectations

Being mindful of your emotions helps prevent you from reacting in a self-destructive manner on impulse, when you have clouded judgement. Whilst managing expectations of situations or other individuals can help create a more harmonious environment. This will make for better outcomes of problems and ultimately, emotional regulation will make you more powerful and bountiful in situations normally sent to distress you.  

AUS Flower Essence Remedies

Red Grevillea Essence Drops: This Essence is for people who feel stuck. It acts as a catalyst for those who know what they want to achieve but do not know how to go about it. It is for people who are too reliant on others. It promotes independence and boldness. This Essence is extremely effective though the changes may not be as anticipated. Like the Grey Spider Flower this plant is a member of the Grevillea family and its flowers are a dark red colour, similar in colour to the Waratah.

Five Corners Essence Drops: Five Corners Essence resolves low self-esteem, lack of confidence and diminished self-love. This tall, proud shrub gets its name from its fruit which has five corners – and this corresponds with the anatomical position of a body with arms and legs, and the fifth point being the head. This Essence allows the life force to flow through to these five centres. When this happens a person feels good and strong in themselves, and they feel their own love and beauty. In the negative mode, the person will appear crushed and 'held in'. This flower is in Confid Remedy Essence, which helps us to take responsibility for situations and events that occur in our lives and realise that we have the ability and power not only to change those events but also to create those we want.

Creative Remedy Essence: Inspires creative and emotional expression and gives courage and clarity in public speaking. It also helps to clear creative blocks and to find creative solutions in all of life’s pursuits.

Silver Princess Essence Drops: Helps for finding your life direction when you are at a cross-road and helps to show you what your next step is and an understanding of that direction. This Essence is also excellent when one has reached an important goal and yet one is left feeling very flat, thinking 'is this all there is'. In this case, it gives one a glimpse or a sense of what is next and allows one to enjoy the journey whilst striving for the goal. 

Amongst the chaos of everyday life, it is all too easy to become consumed by others and your responsibilities. Often individuals suffering from a loss of control of their life, lose connection with their true selves and the ambitions that were once so important to them. Australian Bush Flower Essences want to see you regain your sense of self and be in control of your life. Our remedies are on hand to help.  

Much love, respect and peace,
