5 Ways to be Excellent in Bed

Sex, a word that can make the most dirty minded person blush at the right moment. But the thing that grabs my attention about sex is the benefits, increased mental and physical health. Sex can also reduce stress, helping you to feel relaxed throughout the day.

The countless benefits are mind blowing. But how do you make the best of such a beneficial practice? How do you keep it ‘fresh’ in the bedroom?

In this post I’m going to share 5 ways that will help you to become excellent in bed, keeping your spouse happy and wanting more. Your sexual relationship does not have to die down, buried by boredom and repetition.

1. Maintain a healthy physique

Exercise your core, do some cardio and lift some weights. Being fit is a big plus in the bedroom. You do not want to be immensely out of breath in just 30 seconds of intercourse.

2. Teach yourself to last longer

If you have trouble ejaculating early, you are not as screwed as you might think. Masturbate 2 hours before intercourse or buy thick condoms. Thick condoms decrease the sensation and helps to delay ejaculation.

3. Do not rush foreplay!

Foreplay can lead to some unimaginably hot sex, if done correctly. So, whisper in her ear, kiss her all over and experiment with some new ways to skyrocket the sexual tension. Take your time. Foreplay should not be rushed and can be very fun.

4. Experiment with different positions

Personally, I think practicing the missionary position for more than 15 minutes is boring as hell. Learn a menu of different sex positions. The internet houses allot of them. Wow your partner with some newly learned skills and keep her/him guessing. Sex should be a fun experimentation, not a repetition.

5. Make eye contact as much as possible

Look into your spouse’s eyes. Make the experience as intimate as possible. Show him/her that they are the only person that matters in the given moment. Stare deep into her eyes, look into her soul. She will feel the attraction and melt with the movement of your body. This makes the practice more special and unforgettable.

Master these 5 tips and you will be well on your way on perfecting yourself in bed. Feel free to leave a comment about this post and share tips of your own.

5 Step Meditation to Empower Your Aura

You feel drained all the time. Your motivation has depleted into the gutter. You want to accomplish your goals but you don’t have the energy. You fall deeper and deeper into depressive thoughts.

An unhealthy or damaged aura might be the cause of your so called self destruction. Below you will notice a guided meditation to empower your aura. When done regularly, I assure you that your negative mindset will demolish itself. You will start to think more positively and your energy levels throughout the day will be more than enough to accomplish your goals.

1. Make yourself as comfortable as possible

Sit or lie down, whichever feels more comfortable. It is important to feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible.

2. Focus on your breathing

Close your eyes and start to breathe deeply. Inhaling and exhaling, completely focused on your breath. Feel your chest rise and fall, focusing on the motion.

3. Observe and banish any thoughts

As you start to relax, observe any thoughts you might have. Imagen your thoughts floating away. Excluding those thoughts from your mind’s eye until they are no longer visible. This will need some practice, but eventually you will get the hang of it.

4. Realize the endless opportunities at your fingertips

You should now feel completely relaxed and one with yourself. Imagen yourself sitting smack in the middle of the universe. See the starts and planets around you. Notice how huge and perfect the universe really is. Realize the limitless opportunities waiting for you to take action. 

5. Breathe in white-gold energy

Now that you have a clear image, start to breathe in white-gold energy from the stars and planets around you. Feel the energy within your body vibrating at a higher frequency. Keep on breathing in the white-gold energy until it expands beyond your being, expanding your aura and empowering it with divine light. When you are ready, slowly open your eyes and continue your day feeling refreshed and empowered.

I would recommend practising this meditation at least 15 minutes a day if you are striving for quick results.

4 Ways to Demolish the opinions of others

Have you ever walked into a crowded place feeling watched and judged in every way? You wake up one morning in the best mood, ready to let your dreams come true, only to be stomped on by someone else’s insecurities. Like I said in my other post, 5 Ways to Break the Habit of Negative Thinking, people love to judge other people, but the thing is that most of the time it’s all in your head.

You’ve been living to please others. You’ve been told what respectable looks like and how to act to be accepted by others. Simply losing yourself in the process. Forgetting your own uniqueness. If you really think about it there is absolutely no reason to even consider the opinions of others. The only opinion that matters is your own. 

If you know that you did wrong in some way, follow your own opinion and try to fix it. If you know you can do better, follow your opinion and better yourself.

You will be surprised what wonders listening to yourself can manifest into your daily life.

Below I am going to share an exercise that will help you make your opinion your priority, discarding the judgement of others…

1. Write down your insecurities

Grab a pen and some paper. Write down everything that makes you feel insecure. Dig deep within yourself.

2. Write down your feelings regarding those insecurities

How does it make you feel as you see your insecurities in black and white? Acknowledged your emotions. Write down your feelings regarding those insecurities. Force your emotions to be as vivid as possible.

3. Write down how you would conquer those insecurities

After spending some time with your insecurities and emotions, write down how you would be able to conquer it. If you feel insecure about your weight, develop a plan or goal to shake a few pounds. Whatever insecurities you can demolish, go for it. Improve yourself in every way.

4. Motivate 

If you have days were you don’t feel motivated enough, re-read those emotions you’ve written down so that you can remember why you are doing whatever you are doing in the first place.

Live only to please yourself. Stay on top and don’t let anyone drag you down to their level. Screw what they think. You are on planet earth to sculpt the life you want, not the life other people expect you to create.

5 Ways to Break the Habit of Negative Thinking

In this day and age many people struggle with negative thoughts. As a child you have been taught how to act, how to treat people and what is important and what’s not. The list goes on and on. You start to think inside the box instead of seeing a bigger picture. 
You’ve been told what to do your entire life and finally you lose your way. Falling into a pit filled with negative thoughts, caused by people brainwashing you into doing their bidding instead of your own. 

In this post I want to discuss 5 ways to get rid of negative thinking. 5 ways that will serve you well…

1. Meditation

You might have read about this one allot on various websites. The reason for that is because its true. Meditation helps you to look within yourself. It helps you to take control of your mind, excluding that negative chatter. If you can learn to listen beyond that little annoying voice telling you that you are not worthy, creating the life that you deserve will become much easier. So start meditating and reap its known benefits.

2. Occupy your wasted time with something you enjoy

If you love writing as much as I do or you love drawing, whatever the case might be. Why not occupy your free time with something that interests you. Own your much loved skill and use it to broaden your horizon. You will be surprised on what benefit it might have in your everyday life. It also helps to quiet that voice inside your head constantly trampling your motivation to the ground.

3. Break a sweat: Another important one on my list

Make sure to exercise regularly. You will feel much better and your self confidence will skyrocket through the roof. Regular exercise also improves your mental health. Helping you to stay sharp by improving your memory. So break a sweat and turn some heads with a healthy physique you can be proud of. 

4. Take a day off

We are not robots destined to work and not play. Take a day to do whatever you want. Watch a movie, read a book or go have a beer with your friends or maybe even alone. Everyone needs time to recharge with some occasional fun. Life is about living and what is living without doing something you actually enjoy. Give yourself a reason to live.

5. Care what you think about you.

People love to judge. They will always be judging you behind every corner. The thing is that… It doesn’t matter. What they think and say about you has no impact on your life whatsoever. The only time they will have an impact on your life is when you allow them to. Sit back and ask yourself, “Why the hell do I care what people think?” Give yourself some concrete answers, study these answers and realize how stupid they sound when you say it out loud.  And for the love of God, discard these negative, judging leaches from your social sircle. 

Live by these 5 ways and negative thinking will disappear from your mind. You will learn to respect yourself. You will realize that your top priority is to keep yourself happy, living the life that you deserve.
