Hajj the Journey of a Lifetime

https://youtu.be/zEqmeTRApkk This video says it all- a beautiful and spiritual journey of hearts and souls undertaken by millions of muslims annually. It was my calling in August 2019 as I undertook the holy pilgrimage. I filmed highlights of my time out there. Nothing can compare to it.

Future Dreams

It’s useful to visualise yourself in the future and see what you want it to look like as you then train your mind, plans, thoughts and actions to meet that desired need. Almost like training your brain to think and act in order to achieve that goal. So what are you waiting for? Create your own vision board either via scrapbooking images and words about what you want to happen in your life or via a digital slideshow of images and words to reinforce your wishes to the universe and to yourself🤗
