‘DISCUSSIONS ON FOOD & EMOTIONAL REACTIONS

THURSDAY 6TH FEBRUARY – TIME TO TALK DAY
SATURDAY 8TH FEBRUARY – WHITE ROSE CENTRE LEEDS
Sunday 19th January 2014 – EAT AT – HIGHLY Recommended – Oranaise, Hyde Park/ Woodhouse Corner, Leeds
Today I have eaten the most fantastic Moroccan Style cooking in a simple small restaurant at Hyde Park in Leeds.
My day started waking up after sleeping most off yesterday being quite sick, and being half asleep this morning to be turned around by food that in the simplest terms makes you ‘happy’.
Yesterday had been miserable and wet, so we were stuck in most the day, and to get this meal was inspired by a beautiful walk in the sunshine, and was a spur of the moment decision by my lovely ‘Meerkat’ energy healing love in my life.
To not feel sick and to have spend my time with my lovely positive energy healing girlfriend inspired me to write a little about the eating out and travelling that I have been doing over these last few weeks with my lovely ‘Meerkat’ and to talk a little about Energy, how we are feeling, and how we represent that within ourselves internally at any moment in time.
How something as simple as a good meal at what we feel it is worth in price, our emotions towards that feeling off the meals worth and how that may change our own feelings at any moment in time…
Right now I am happy, because
1 – It has been nice sunshine this afternoon.
2 – I have had a nice walk and seen wonderful people around me enjoying the weather.
3 – I have had a wonderful fresh cooked meal with fabulous service and good deserts and a beautiful coffee to go along with it.
4 – I have spent that time with someone who is beautiful caring, wonderful and works with the law off attraction with me
5 – I am no longer feeling so sick within myself.
—- What I was most happy about on this day is now I recognise gratitude and I am thankful for this today.
“In our internal thinkings we may also not be grateful, which chooses your thinking to be unhappy about an event, and make you feel internally ill within yourself.”
Saturday 11th January 2014 – Below Average – Raya Malaysian – Bayswater – London
Anyway food, Sidra Jafri where next??? Oh I remember.
We arrived at Kings Cross at 07:30ish. Sleepy from the train and grabbing a quick coffee from mcd’s, we take a beautiful morning walk in a diagonal sort of direction whilst to enjoy the morning Sunlight and wake up a little more.
Heading in the direction to register for the weekend Seminar at Kensington. Somehow we arrive at Tottenham Court Road, Take a quick time check, and take the tube over to Kensington High Street to Register.
Because we had previously attended the seminars and the day was beautiful, We had already decided to enjoy our day & the sites this morning.
It is always nice to take a walk around Hyde Park near the Palace and see the birds on the small lake. We take a few sandwiches and give them some breakfast, and hungry we make a form of sense of direction towards the South Bank, which is an area I hadn’t really visited before.
Where is that sandwich shop that we went to before??? circling around Gloucester road area we try to remember where we found that fabulous sandwich shop that we had been to before.
(after scouring google maps in the middle of writing this blog taking the roads where we had walked – I am positive this is Cafe Deco, on Gloucester Road)
Again we eat the most beautiful toasted ciabatta with mozzarella, chicken, bacon tomatoes & more. 1 sandwich is enough to feed 2 people, and yet we forgot about that because we knew that the coffee was nice and strong good to take away and the sandwiches are worth what you pay for them around £4-5 each.)
So again we were really happy because we had eaten beautiful food, which at this moment in time we were also feeling good about our day the sunshine, London was not to busy and overcrowded which it sometimes is, and we were relaxed and beginning to enjoy the day after an early wake up and train journey
(subnote : Remember thoughts on emotions and food, how simple things make us feel happy. So if i’m ever feeling a little crappy now about things i remember the good thoughts about that food, and soon I am happy again)
After a beautiful toasted sandwich, our stomachs full we head towards the city. Here’s a few pics of how beautiful the warm january Sun was that day, the sky clear.

We had walked around the south bank, and we decide it’s time to go to the afternoon session of the seminar, so we head to bayswater quickly check into the hotel and head back towards Kensington.
Thank you again for :Another fantastic enlightening fun open spiritual awakened minded seminar afternoon from Sidra & her Team at the Tara.
Happy and full of questions about our thoughts emotions eft frequencies and more pdp info, we head back to the Hotel and get ready looking forward to the Malaysian Meal we had read up about in the hotel.
(quoted as one of the best in the Paddington area, we had the what was a below average meal with a huge chef error by bringing out rice that had looked like it had been re heated in a microwave, and was like rubber!)
Served with a fabulous curry dish that was a little small in portion.
The soup that was the starter appeared & tasted to be freshly boiled water with a stock cube added to it and poured over some cooked meat and fresh whole vegetables.
This may have just been because they had a party in, and yet the rice was no excuse. The service was polite and good and there was an apology from the waiting staff that they were having problems with the chef and fresher rice was brought to us.
To take the conversation back to mood, and how happy I was on Sunday to have eaten the most fabulous simplest freshest food in Leeds, and to compare how and because the meal at the malaysian was poor and average it definitely changed the mood off our emotional thinking at that time, and affected the way that we were feeling within, and changed our energy at that time in the area that we were in and was surrounding us.
Because we are a positive couple and have been so fortunate to have been partaking in a Personal Development Awakening Weekend with Sidra Jafri and her team that weekend, we soon shrugged the negative energy front from ourselves which was causing us to feel drained and tired out, to find by pure accident getting slightly lost some beautiful night lit scenery around St Pauls Cathedral and views & pictures taken over millenium bridge and the river.
It had been such a wonderful, sharp, bright day that day, the daylight throughout the day was clean and strong, the evening so calm cool, and yet serene.
So we closed our day sleepy on the central line on our way back to the hotel, I stayed up watching the footy results, and my wonderful meerkat exhausted by our 5am start from leeds that day was fast asleep as soon as hitting the pillow.
“When we change our internal thinking process about an event such as the meal and the energy it took from us by being unhappy about it. We disband or move away from the negative energy and find something positive from a time in a day, our energy returns we feel better within ourselves because we are happier within ourselves, and we find gratitude in our time and place in our day”
Sunday 12th January 2014 – Highly recommended – The Muffin Man Kensington & Cafe Deco Gloucester Road, London
Today started cold, and being so hungry after having a lie in, we found the nearest half decent looking cafe in the area and ate a below average breakfast in a cafe on bayswater road.
And yet we were ok with that, because at that moment in time our emotional thinking was satisfied because we were hungry, Most important part of the breakfast was the coffee to wake us up, and the egg i sent back, because there was no excuse to send a broken fried egg when there were only 2 off us in the cafe.
Happy our stomachs full we walked from bayswater across hyde park to watch the many different birds at the lake, as we always do if we are in that area. Hyde park is a beautiful place to walk on any day to escape the busy streets, take your dog out, go for a cycle or a run, take in the magnificent buildings such as Kensington Palace and the Albert Hall, or simply kick a ball around or relax with a few beers with friends or family and talk to loads off interesting random strangers on any day. Sunny is nicer with a few beers I admit.
Today we were heading to the second day of Sidra Jafri, and her fabulous awakening weekends.
If you need to take your head for a talk this is the best space to do it. a combination of powerful coaching & personal development techniques, learning off our higher self, being, emotional freedom techniques and more.
I have been slightly disappointed for people to not take the positive benefits out off the weekend and seen people complaining writing negative comments about the FREE TIME that Sidra & her team give, and then to ask for a good fee, if anyone will like to join the team and further develop themselves.
To that effect what i say is you pay for your own development what you believe your self worth to be, and if anyone will be an angel and sponsor me to take on further advanced pdp work on myself with Sidra Jafri & her Team then this is certainly one team that I will like to work with myself further developing myself
Back to our stomachs emotions, food, and partly why I am writing this blog to encourage you to work on yourself when you may be at a loss in sense of direction with your life, be that work, your relationship, anything.
To want to know more about ‘what is possible’ then work on yourself.
6 years ago. I wouldn’t have even thought I’d be writing this blog and been inspired to do so if I hadn’t attended as many self development seminars as possible travelling to London in the cheapest possible way, understood more about personal emotions, psychology and met as many people working in that field which if they see you willing to work on yourself will help you work on you. Doing this whilst not working, going through homelessness at the time and more.
It has changed my whole mindset about life, possibilities, and everything. Allowed me to recognise my own Mental Health Anxiety issues, and helped me dealing with that.
Has stopped me from going backwards with my life, brought me to meet with fabulous people around the world, and to develop a sense of gratitude in life about everything.
Today because for a change we took in some sights most of the previous day, our intention was to see the rest of the day through with the 2nd day of the seminar, to feel at the end of the day and each session, completely stress free and full off energy because of the good people and energy we were surrounded by. The relaxing meditation, and full of further knowledge about how we can work with our emotional energy, more coaching & nlp tips/ techniques, and time given by Sidra Jafri & her team which is worth anybodies time, effort, and a weekend in London.
It was the afternoon break, and feeling in need of a little coffee we decided to pop into a little place around the corner from Kensington Tube which has kept intriguing us to be treated to the most delightful family run cafe.
THE MUFFIN MAN – PROBABLY THE BEST HOME MADE MUFFIN/ CAKE SHOP/ QUANT CAFE GOING !!!!! (so far that I have tasted!) I ate a carrot cake, and Ms meerkat a muffin… Heaven on both plates, fabulous service, VERY WELL PRICED, good coffee. This place just shocked us… For under £15 for 2 people we had just eaten what an angel had sent us.
That simply how delicious the food was, our emotional state further uplifted by good food, service, the Awakening. So imagine how happy we are feeling.
So lets say that your feeling unhappy in any circumstance or situation. Simply take your thoughts back to a good feeling. How good do you feel when your thinking that way. See how happy feeling that way is. Put your state of mind back in a state of the happiness you are in when your feeling good.
Make sure that you will be at the Time To Change Event in Leeds on Sat 8th, and if you are unable to make your pledge online & support the #TimeToTalk Day on Feb 6th
Thankyou for your time in reading this, and I hope that these thoughts will help you at any moment in time if you may be in an unhappy state of mind.
With Love – George
