From Here to Eternity

June 14, 2018

If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow.

Meditation, mindfulness, silence, and being present in the moment are all about quieting the mind and calming the body. If you have never done this, fifteen minutes of meditation can feel like an eternity.

Being still is something that is uncomfortable and foreign if you never were taught to do this. I know I didn’t grow up with parents that practiced this. We live in a very busy world. It is all about go, go, go and do, do, do. However what ever you want to do, be or have will come to you so much easier when we go within and calm your mind. Everything is created twice, once in the spiritual form and then in the physical.There are so many benefits you will get when you begin making a daily practice out of meditating.

I now meditate for fifteen minutes every day and am so much more peaceful, patient, happier and healthier. The things I desire come to me much more effortlessly too. It is as if the struggle has disappeared and I just allow the universe to met me half way in acquiring what I want.

So, if you are ready to be here now but touch the hands of eternity to manifest what ever you want into your life, begin your daily practice of meditation. If you need help beginning this, I would love to be your guide.

Seek and Destroy

June 7, 2018
6 months into the year! Have you reached your goals? Have you lost the weight or given up those negative habits you set out to do on the 1st of the year? If not, what’s holding you back?
Are subconscious beliefs sabotaging your personal power? If you got more “I can’t” than “I can” messages as a child, you are probably having more “I can’t” than “I can” experiences as an adult. In other words, if you heard messages from parents and other authority figures that told you that your opinion didn’t count and that your actions didn’t matter, you are likely to have subconscious beliefs that mirror those ideas. The result is often a person with deep insecurities about their ability to positively affect the course of their lives. Some people overcompensate for this feeling of powerlessness by making a career out of becoming powerful. Usually this sense of power is achieved by acquiring money, possessions and social status.
Unfortunately, these external signs of power seldom satisfy the gnawing feeling of insecurity and powerlessness within. Anger,procrastination or  any negative behavior are signs that you are sabotaging your personal power.  People with authentic power can have an abundance of money, possessions and social status, but their personal power does not come from the things they have, but rather from who they are.

Sample Beliefs:

  • I trust the decisions I make.
  • I trust the Divine guidance I am receiving.
  • I acknowledge my ability and responsibility to make a positive difference in the world.
  • I actively embrace the opportunities that come with change.
  • I am true to my personal vision.
  • I am willing to take the risks necessary to live my life openly and honestly.
  • I give myself permission to do what I love.
So if you’re ready to get to the next level of greatness and change those behaviors that are not serving you, let’s have a conversation.
The quality of your culture depends on the quality of your relationships, which depend on the quality of your conversations.


It’s A Mistake

May 31, 2018

We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here NOW with the power to shape your day and your future.                                                           Steve Maraboli

I have made a ton of mistakes in my life. I continue to make them. Every time I fail or take a wrong turn, I do my best to see what I can do differently. How can I improve in some way?

I used to beat myself up over my mistakes, however I have learned that to move forward I need to forgive myself and do better today. Here is an acronym John C. Maxwell created to help him keep mistakes in perspective.

M-messages that give us feedback about life.

I-interruptions that should cause us to reflect and think.

S-signposts that direct us to the right path.

T-tests that push us to greater maturity.

A-awakenings that keep us in the game mentally.

K-keys that we can use to unlock the next door of opportunity.

E-explorations that let us journey where we’ve never been before.

S-statements about our development and progress.

 

So the next time you make a mistake, just know that you can climb out of the hole that you might think you are in. It is never to late to start again. Just keep moving forward and take a new path.


Tough Times

May 24, 2018

“You’re going to go through tough times- that’s life. But I say, nothing happens to you, it happens for you. See the positive in negative events.”                                                                                         Joel Osteen

Life can get pretty tough sometimes.  It can get dirty, messy and so damn hard. Many people are struggling with feelings that are pulling them down. Having a spiritual practice is vital when the going gets tough.

Recently I have been sadden by the death of a dear friend and another one that is fighting for his life, after a diagnose with leukemia. One thing after the next has set back is healing process. It is difficult to witness love ones hurting. I took in another friend into my home who is going through a tough time and I have a coaching client who also just lost her mother and nephew from a drug overdose.

I am so happy and grateful to have the faith that everything is for our highest good. I meditate every morning to stay connect to source energy. I take impeccable care of body by walking, dancing, gardening and other activities to stay healthy, I journal every morning, read inspirational books and listen to things that motivate me. Without this practice, it is easy to sink into a funky state of mind.

Even when you don’t feel like it, that is when it is most important to reach out, stay connected and have a practice that will give you the strength to pull yourself out of any situation that seems dire.  You can get through it.


Finding A Conclusion to My Confusion

May 17, 2018

“The most important physiological discovery of the century is the discovery of the self image.”     Maxwell Maltz

Who really are you? What are your beliefs about yourself? We are the person we believe ourselves to be. Henry Ford said,” If you think you can’t do something you’re right, If you think you can, you’re right too.”

Maxwell Maltz was a renowned plastic surgeon back in the 1930’s and 1940’s.  He saw that after removing scars and preforming other procedures on peoples faces to improve their appearance, they still didn’t feel any better about themselves.  He found this remarkable and later went on to write a book Psycho-Cybernetics, were he introduced his idea that a person must have an accurate and positive view of themselves before setting goals; otherwise they will get stuck in a continuing pattern of limiting beliefs.

If ones self image is unhealthy or faulty, everything he or she does will end up in failure. A healthy self image is the key to your success.

The good news is you can change your self image through awareness, study, understanding and diligently applying the principles to become someone new. If you want a new personal reality, you need to create a new personality.

If you want more success, if you want to aspire higher, or if you just want to feel better about YOU, reach out. It will be a grand step in developing an outstanding self image.


Do You Want to Know a Secret?

May 10, 2018

“Nature yields her most profound secrets to the person who is determined to uncover them.”         Napoleon Hill

I love older classic movies from the 1940-1950’s. I find the acting and stories so compelling. There were no special effects to entertain you, so the dialog had to be intriguing, intelligent and emotionally gripping. There was’t even any color to enhance the scenes so using shadows and playing with angles left much to your imagination.

One movie I watch last week was Bird Man of Alcatraz, a true story based on the life of  Robert Franklin Stroud. He was incarcerated for 54 years of his life with 43 of those years in solitary confinement. In that time he became a respected ornithologist (bird expert) and  educated himself in many subjects.

It made me think of what we are capable of when we join forces with this universal intelligence. We don’t have to go to solitary confinement to uncover our  talents and gifts, but we do need to sacrifice something of a lower nature for a higher one.

When we go into the solitude of our minds, nature will begin to reveal her secrets to you too!

Are you ready for a revaluation?

 

 


You Don’t Like Me?

May 3, 2018

Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

Don Miquel Ruiz- The Four Agreements

 

This lesson was one of the most difficult for me and I believe most others as well to learn. The fear of criticism is one of the greatest fears. That is why people would rather die than speak on stage. I used to be petrified to speak in public. My voice would crackle and my body would shake from fear. However now I absolutely love it!  By facing your fear, it will loss its hold on you. If people criticize you for doing something that isn’t to their liking, it’s their issues, not yours.  They owe it, not you!

 

Be true to you and give no attention to the people how put you down. Give your best, be your best and let the rest fall away. Own your power!!!
