I live my life from the core belief of honour and integrity. Where I live, love and meet others, I expect that core belief to be respected and honoured.
Who am I?
I was born to Eileen and Edward Ellis who taught me that nothing mattered in life as long as you had love in your heart and lived with honour and integrity.
I am a simple man, with simple principles, I am not the sum of my achievements. I am not my past, and I am not my mistakes, I am not what I do or what I know. I am not what I own. I am simply, David.
A positive, heartfelt belief was inherent within me from a very young age that, “I can do it” and “I can be what I want to be.” That belief drove me along my journey, and in that pursuit of “I can,” I was successful most of the time. However, sometimes I failed, and when I failed, I learned, before trying again. Each time I tried and believed in my heart that I would be successful, I was successful. But every time I used my head and thought the process through, or became fearful, I failed. The interesting thing here is, the more you fail, the more you fear failure and the more you fail. It's a problematic loop to escape.
During my earlier journey, I made mistakes - so many mistakes. I was incongruent with myself and did not live my truth. I lived a lie, and I was ashamed of who I was, and as a result, I hurt myself. More importantly, I hurt the people I loved. They were hurt, and it was my fault.
As I journeyed deeper into self with new learnings of universal energy and quantum physics, I became congruent with self and truthful to who I am. I vowed never to lie or hurt others again in the pursuit of my own identity, life goals or dreams.
The pain I felt after my Dad died left a void which I slowly filled with study. Studies into energy, holistic healing and the life hereafter. My first interest was a study in Colour Therapy, which opened the door for my new learning. I continued with more education embracing Crystal Therapy, REIKI, Hypnotherapy, Addiction Counselling, C.B.T, Stress Management, N.L.P, and a host more, I continue to learn today.
I practised as a therapist for 20 years and taught courses in Stress Management, The Power of the Subconscious Mind, Colour Therapy and Crystal Therapy at the Atlantis Institute in Ireland.
Over the past ten years, I have written many inspirational quotes, memes, blogs, and articles, which I have shared on my websites - www.ThePositiveMind.ie, www.AtlantisCentre.ie and www.DavidEllis.ie along with my social media platforms. I decided that I would combine my work and publish them in hard copy, to share the knowledge that has been imparted to me through my life experience, teaching career and as a therapist, hypnotherapist, and counsellor.
The inspiration to write my memes and quotes came from events in my day to day life. People I have met and places I have visited, these would resonate very strongly in my heart. As waves of learning would present themselves in the matrix of universal consciousness, I learned that these teachings were sporadic and not a regular occurrence. So I began to write my quotes, articles, and blogs as they occurred to me and I continue to do that today.
