Addicted To The Madness!

The quieter you become the more you are able to hear.

Rumi

Last Friday, I took the train into New York to meet up with some friends and visit the Met. They are celebrating by having an exhibit of the fiftieth anniversary of Apollo 11 moon landing that took place on July 20,1969. It was fascinating and I highly recommend seeing it. But it got me thinking, of how absolutely quiet it must be in space. and the absence of any sound.

To get to the museum, I walked a few blocks and then took the subway there. The noise level on the streets was off the charts! Between the sirens, trucks and cars beeping there horns, and the stimulus from other things was over whelming. Thank God, I am able to stay grounded and be aware of the noise without getting sucked into all, but, I gotta say that I couldn’t wait to get out of the city. It can rattle your nervous system to a point were you just become numb and addicted to it all.

We are not meant to live like this. It isn’t healthy. Yes, you can learn to adjust to all the noise but you will never get in touch with your authentic self if you aren’t taking the time to be in nature. Going to the moon has shown mankind how vital and precious our beautiful blue planet really is. Connect to Mother Earth, embrace all the wonders and the natural resources that she has to offer. And most importantly, listen to the silence.


Don’t Leave Me Out!

Are your thoughts and words supporting you and creating a beautiful vision for your future or sabotaging you and keeping you a victim of your past? Words change worlds and make the invisible, visible.

As humans, our need to connect and feel like we belong is more important than anything else. When we don’t feel like we belong, we don’t feel safe, when we don’t feel safe, there is no trust, and when there is no trust, we protect ourselves and shut down.

When we shut down, there is no room for growth, the ability to learn or create. It feels like a pit in your stomach, like an unspoken entity that wants to be heard but you’re too afraid or don’t know how to talk about it.  Our emotions go into overdrive, fear sets in and our nervous system triggers the fight, flight or freeze responds. You’re in pure survival mode. Our amygdala gets hijacked and our brains are up-regulating stress hormones which compromises our immune system, causing dis-ease.

As opposed to when we feel safe, there is a feeling of openness and trust. The energy is completely different. There is a coherence between the heart and the brain which allows for cooperation, sharing, compassion and growth. We are able to navigate the uncertainties of life with faith and courage. When we feel safe and connected, we are building, expanding, developing, celebrating and creating possibilities that we didn’t see before. We fall in love with life!  The hormone oxytocin, the love hormone is oozing from our hearts.  Trust is generated by our pre-frontal cortex or the executive brain. The ladder is generated by our primitive brain, or the limbic brain. This is the shift we need to make so we can evolve from the survival mind-set to the creative mind-set.

Our words and the energy behind them can make someone feel included or excluded.

So, the question now is how do we transform a conversation so we can communicate on a higher level to open up the connections with ourselves and others.

It’s by making the invisible, visible. We must become aware of the feelings that are being triggered inside of us and the chemical cocktails we are either up regulating or down regulating within our bodies through the language of conversations.


Once Upon a Time

September 29, 2015

knowledge-key-to-success-written-vintage-old-book-34949738Once Upon a time, people relied on old knowledge of living off the land rather than shops, for their source of food, clothing and other such necessities.  Our modern world has evolved out of this ancient one. Unfortunately the course we took as a whole, has separated nature out of the equation. Most people have forgotten the old ways. Knowledge is the key to success, and nature is the key to knowledge. When you study nature, all the mysteries of life reveal themselves. All the answers are hidden in the very thing that we over look. Even a single blade of grass has knowledge in it. The natural laws of the universe have been given to us to explore, and live in harmony with. This is our play ground. So why would we want to  decimate our world? I believe that the only reason is, that we forgot about the old knowledge. This is the same reason why there is so much addiction, distraction, depression, and disease. Because we separated from the truth of who we are. We are creators, here to create our best life. To manifest our deep desires, we must connect with nature and the old knowledge.When we become whole in body, mind and spirit, we will remember who we really are. So let’s go back and read the story. Once upon a time when we were all connected.


Prayer Works

April 8, 2015

Life is a prayer. I love this statement; When life is rough pray, when life is great, pray. I have come into the habit of praying every day. Actually, I practice prayer without ceasing. Which means, I am conscious of my thoughts, which are my prayers. Every morning, I wake up and ask God how may I be of service to my highest good. Every evening, I do the same. I feel and have come to know that prayer is not just in times of trouble, but also when times are good.  It is raising our consciousness with a deep feeling of gratitude that will connect us to God, and this is where are prayers are answered. Pray every day, even when times are good. Pray is a state of mind.
