Live your life in new ways

Posted on: January 1st, 2015 by Lynika Write A Comment



How to survive…

“Live your life in new ways…

Climb out via the other side of the bed each morning.

Don’t reach for your phone, let your soul come back all the way first.

Notice small things, kneel in the garden, watch the tiny worlds living amongst the grass.

Remember how your heart beats for you each day, take deep breaths in return.

Work in a different room or corner of your home.

If you don’t work or you work for someone else, carry a stone or scrap of paper in your pocket with something valuable written on it.

It can be a quote, a word, a wish, your name…

Remember your world is bigger than 4 walls and it calls to you.

Eat outside.

Help someone.

Love the miracle of being here, alive, playing yourself for a short time on this magnificent stage.

Love your character. Write it new lines.

Remember to let it laugh, weep, dance, fall down, get up, love.

Think outside the old lines.

Don’t stay in one repeat episode.

Walk into new rooms, make new chapters.

Own your life.

Occupy it.

Our time here is brief.

Live it wild, w i d e, open and deep.”  ~ Lynika Cruz

Get ready to shine, shine, shine

This world has enough imitations…

Break free of any limitations you may have boxed yourself in with and shine, shine shine…

Because it turns out…

That little light of yours ain’t so little…

And it sure as heck doesn’t belong in the shade of anyone else’s shadow.

You don’t need anybody’s permission to be who you really are!

Live whole…

Live deep…

Live wide…

Live out loud..!

Count down with me…

In ten seconds you are going to decide to let go of everything and anything that keeps you small…











Welcome to the planet you magnificent, authentic, unique being!

We’ve been waiting for you! ~ Lynika Cruz

P.S. You’re born with the right to become YOU!

Your life is happening right NOW

Pssst… Look around you…

Life is happening right this second.

This very moment right here, right now, is where you are actually ALIVE and living.

We spend so much time thinking and planning ahead that we sometimes don’t realise we have accidentally abandoned our current life and moved there.

Moved to a place that doesn’t have solid, earthy goodness filling you up and sweet, present, ecstatic joy slapping you in the face with a big, happy kiss.

Planning ahead is important but be careful not to live there.

We lose precious moments on words and half sentences like these:

  • Later…
  • As soon as…
  • Once I’ve/We’ve…
  • After…
  • When the/they/he/she…

Meanwhile those lost moments accumulate and turn into days, then weeks, months, years until one day you realise…

“These moments are my LIFE.”

Go outside for a moment, really. Get up, look out the window if you’re in a blizzard or heatwave, but LOOK out there, look at life, it’s happening right now around you and TO you.

The loose leaf, the sudden dot of a small bird lifting against the sky, the rustle or stillness of this very moment and your own heart beating in your chest, right now. THIS is living.

And it’s happening NOW.

Be happy in it.

Satisfied even…

Take one small moment if you will and just LOVE it.

Turn it over for a brief second and say out loud, in this moment, this very moment I’m alive and I am noticing it and feeling it.

Now breathe and breathe and breathe.

Life is brief…

Live it W I D E and DEEP… you gorgeous, magnificent, amazing miracle!

Yes, YOU are!

The most powerful influence in your life

“When you’re bad-mouthing yourself internally, you’re also listening hard. Remember there IS a recipient on the receiving end of your inner jargon.

Catch yourself whenever you start to put yourself down or discourage yourself. In that very moment STOP and SEE that person as 3D, standing right there in the room with you, looking at you wide eyed, earnestly, waiting to trust and believe whatever comes out of your mouth.

This isn’t a trick, it’s the sad yet honest reality. You’re listening, soaking up every message you send yourself. YOU are the one who can make the difference to yourself. YOU are the most powerful influencer in your life.

Maybe your boss or colleagues are mean, maybe the world bites hard sometimes, maybe your parents weren’t there for you or never understood you, perhaps you were bullied badly or still are, maybe you’ve had an abusive spouse, maybe you’ve felt your whole life that nobody cared and you have never mattered.

All the more reason and PROOF as to why YOU need to be the exact person to show up for yourself. Funny enough, it may feel as if all those other people and events are the ones that could make the difference to your life being good or bad, a success or failure. If only they’d understand or say sorry or back you up.

Truth is, it’s you. You’re the one, the only one who CAN make the difference. Every one else’s support or encouragement is either temporary or part time.

You’re the one constant in your life, the one voice always talking, the one companion always in the room.

Your approval, your belief is what you really need. Those eyes are looking to you, those ears are waiting for you.

Waste no more time looking outward.

And don’t just take some half-baked, casual attitude about it either. Would you convince anyone else that way? No.

You’re no fool and you don’t want some watered down, inner flaky prince or princess charming showing up, asking you to hop on a two legged horse outta there.

Get FIERCE with your life, get protective, get REAL and CHAMPION yourself every moment you can.

You’re listening, start talking.

I want to see you smash the illusions and powerhouse your life.

This world needs you at your best. YOU need you at your best.

This is the moment it all changes forever.” ~ Lynika Cruz

Surround yourself with the right people

“You must surround yourself with the right people, it’s imperative to your heart, soul and dreams. You wouldn’t fill your house with things that make you miserable and sad. Don’t fill your life with anything less than the beautiful people who deserve you in theirs.” ~ Lynika Cruz

Let your colours spill over the lines

Posted on: May 16th, 2011 by Lynika Write A Comment



I LOVE anything outside of the box.

As a child I found it very hard to colour inside the lines and I’m glad to say I still do. I much prefer to live outside the box and to let colour spill over any lines.

When was the last time you threw off the ‘expected’ and did something in a new way, or simply your way or just for the fun of it?
