Some people have decided to buckle up for safety because life has become bumpy. The ride has been quite wild the last eight or more months. So much uncertainty. So much unpredictability. I can certainly understand people wanting to hold tight, protect and keep safe from a world that seems to be so out of control. That is not what my gut is telling me. My intuition is calling me to let lose and let my wild side out. To dance furiously and unleash my passion. Sometimes I want to scream out loud, to laugh wildly, to love passionately and play childishly.
My body longs for movement. My soul cries out for freedom. My spirit is searching for peace. All around me I see people wanting to hold on to security. To look for the familiar. But we must dance furiously until we create a new pattern. A new dance. Let go……..
Allow yourself to embrace the uncertainty with faith and courage. Take a trip of your mind and explore all the places that have kept you imprisoned in your own beliefs. The secret things that you keep tucked away. Even you think you can fool yourself. Loss yourself to yourself. That is where you will find yourself. The hippies of yesterday had it right. Make love not war. My hippy heart wants to move forward with creating and exploring new possibilities with the wisdom of the ancient ancestors of the past. Let’s dance wildly and furiously. Let’s get into a frenzy to rearrange, derange, and interchange the addictive patterns that have our culture crippled and trapped in conformity. The way out is the way in.
“When the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught, the last river poisoned, only then will we realize that one cannot eat money.”
Cree Indian Wisdom
Hoo Hoo Hoo, Tis the season! As I watch television it seems like every commercial is about shopping and buying. Sales, specials and bargains are every where! Every year the commercialism seems to get more and more frenzied. What is it that we yearn for? Is it really more stuff? I mean, I like nice things but the older I get the less stuff I really want. I really love connecting with people. I love sharing ideas. I love good stories. How much money do we need to feel secure? We can’t eat money If we took the time to educate, empower,reward and train people we would have a stronger and healthier economy. Our economy would be healthier if we invested in educating the people. Our planet is not doing well. She is melting, burning, choking and suffocating. This is our home. Our earth and our heart. They are one and the same.
As we get closer to the holidays, why not forfeit gift giving with relationship building. Invest in giving away things, invest in healthy conversations, and invest in supporting a cause. Things that will last and pays dividends over and over. Let’s return to our hearts to heal the earth.
“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”
If there is one constant in life it is change. This is good news because if you aren’t happy with any part of your life, you can change it. In order to change your personal reality, you must change your personality. In order to change your personality, you must change the conversation you are having with yourself. We live in a river of change and everything is connected. Our six hundred trillion cells are self-regulating themselves every second of every day. You are not the same person you were yesterday. When your cells are in harmonious communication with each other you experience homeostasis. When they’re not you experience some sort of emotional and or physical pain. This all stems from resistance to change.
It takes courage to change. To transform our words, thinking, habits and patterns takes a conscious awareness. But if we don’t, we become rigid, and if we become too rigid, we will collapse. Staying open to change is staying open to possibilities. When we can communicate with ourselves and each other in a healthy way, we can create the life we truly want. Our words have incredible energy behind them. They resonate in our bodies and send out a ripple vibration into the world. Words create worlds. Use them wisely.
One of the best pieces of advice I ever got was from a horse master. “Its not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it.”
Stress, it is simply unavoidable, right? I mean it seems like every day there is something that can take you on a journey that disrupts your serenity. Just yesterday, I was working on a power point presentation for a client who needed to insert some videos into it. Now I don’t normally do this sort of thing, however, I thought I would help him out. Yikes, it took me on a road to oblivion, but, I did get it done. Then, I came home to find that my older daughter didn’t clean out the garage like she promised. At this point, I needed to take some deep breaths take a walk, and shake of the frustration of the day. Whew, some days are like this.
What takes you over the edge? I know when I get stressed, the best thing for me to do is to do something physical to release the tension in my body, because it becomes physiological. In other words, my bodies functions get compromised and it goes into survival mode, changing the way my organs & cells respond. It does this so fast that if I don’t change my energy, over time, this can become a repetitive pattern causing all sorts of negative reaction to occur.
So, take a walk, go to a yoga class, dance or take a bike ride. Find something that brings joy to your day.Change the energy before it gets locked into your physiology. Go from stressed to blessed, it feels so much better!
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.
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.
“If your not living your life on the edge, your taking up way too much room.” Bob Proctor
Wow, when I first heard that statement, it was so powerful that it rocked my world!
I thought to myself, could I have that much faith? Could I be so bold and start doing the things that I really desire? Could I live the life that I dream about? Well the first thing I had to do is say YES! To risk playing it safe and go for it. To get uncomfortable is something I have been doing, however this year I want to step it up. I decided that 2018 is going to be the year that I really step into my greatness. I am working on a song about awakening the spirit within, which I know is going to be a world wide hit. I just booked a trip to India to celebrate the grand opening of a school for orphaned children and homeless women, in which I donated a large sum of money to and am leaving for Australia at the end of the month to host a playshop. I am also going to California in February for another one. This is just the beginning of the most exiting and fabulous journey!
So my question to you is, what are you going to do to step out and live on your edge? Are you ready to live your best life? Are you ready to step into your greatness? It is inside of you! All you have to do is say YES!
I could never have done this alone. I had coaches there to support me and still do. So let’s talk about YOU! Isn’t it time you took the next step to the edge? Let’s talk, I am here to assist. NOW, is your time!!!
“Life should be a glorious adventure or nothing at all.” Helen Keller
Recently I found myself getting lost upstate will hiking alone in the woods. I lost my sense of direction and wasn’t sure were I was and how I was going to find my way back out. I didn’t have my handy dandy cell phone with the navigation to help me. I was lost! After gaining my composure I sat down to try to orient myself. So many questions about my life came up for me. After about three hours, other hikers came walking by. They lead the way out.
After I got back to my camp site, I thought about how I found myself by getting lost. I realized that not knowing can be a great way to discover hidden emotions, strengths and fears that would have never come up if I didn’t get lost. After calming my mind, I realized so many things about who I am and how I respond to circumstances that I never would have known about myself if I didn’t get lost.
My younger daughter, just traveled alone cross country in your tiny home and had the most glorious adventure. Some of the pictures from the places she explored where absolutely incredible! Ever day was a new discovery. A journey into the unknown. You can follow her adventures on Instagram (ramblinanne).
So what is something you can do to discover a new path? How can you get lost to find yourself? Step outside of your comfort zone to discover yourself. Get lost! It will be the best thing you did for yourself in a long time.
Need some help in discovering yourself or stepping out of your comfort zone? Let’s talk.
Have you ever wondered where consciousness come from?
Being conscious gives us the ability to feel sensations and to experience the world through the lens of our minds. We can enjoy a beautiful day at the beach or appreciate the laughter of small children playing. We get to feel pain and pleasure.
Our brain perceives nerve impulses from our physical world that get interpreted as sensations or conscious awareness of that stimulus that is triggering the feelings. Consciousness is what psychologist’s call “theory of the mind”. However it is more than this. The mystery of consciousness is now being explored as an illusion. Maybe it is there only to amaze ourselves? Maybe it is there to see ourselves as spiritual beings having this human experience?
The chief benefits of being conscious feeds our self-worth, gives us the joys of life, eases our fear of death and most important, increases our respect for others. Maybe instead of “I think therefore I am” it really is I feel, therefore I am?
In this short video, you will get a glimpse of how magical we humans really are.
If your interested in exploring how this understanding can change your life for the better, please reach out, I love to explore the possibilities.
How many times have you been a conversation were someone was insisting on being right? It seemed like they weren’t even listening to what you had to say. They were just addicted to wanting to be RIGHT! They just wanted to prove their point, position or claim. Every time that we get in this mind-set we actually release dopamine into our body and get a good high from it. We want to prove a point, get the right answers and look smart.
Now being smart is great, however if there is no emotional intelligence behind the smarts we are really not growing, learning and communicating well. We actually remain stuck, and actually are damaging our relationships in business and in our personal life. If you are a boss or in a leadership position, this is vital for the health of your company.
It is wanting to be in a position of power and control rather than cooperation. When we learn how to listen and just be open to another point of view, it will allow so much trust and open dialog. We shift to create the freedom to explore possibilities and look for solutions to problems rather than slam the door shut on any other view point.
So the next time you feel the urge to be RIGHT, rather than react, take a moment to respond in a different way.
Here are three suggestions to keep an open mind and respond rather than that knee jerk reaction:
1-Ask- How do you feel?
2- Ask- What do you think?
3-Ask-How can we work together to find an answer?
Would your rather be RIGHT or do the RIGHT thing?
