I recently had a discussion with someone who felt that everyone is going to die anyway so why not do what you want. My philosophy on life is totally different. Yes, no one gets out alive. We are all going to die one day, however it is the quality of life that is all so important. The choices we make will create either a healthy life style or a destructive one. I chose to eat healthy, think thoughts that are empowering, meditate, be of service and laugh a lot. These choices will give me the quality of life I am seeking. Yes, I might die tomorrow however, I know I would have lived my life my way and in a healthy way. Too many people are not living, the are existing with long drawn out illnesses. How do you want to live your life? Chose wisely.

What triggers your feelings? Do you believe that it is the outside world that makes you feel a certain way? Do you react to what people say, do, or how they behave? Your feelings are an indicator of who you really are. Your feelings than get projected into an emotion. Emotions are the labels we give to our feelings. Say that you feel sad, well, the sadness is the emotion and the feeling could be discomfort in your body. All our feelings are cellular memories that we are bringing up over and over again. It is as if we are really living in the past. What we may act like in our outer world could be totally different than what we are truly feeling. It is who I want you to think I am. This is our facade. This gap creates ambiguity within the body, causing stress. What if you could go through a looking glass and see yourself for who you really are. Beyond the feelings and labels we have come to memorize as us? You can learn to liberate yourself from feelings that keep you a prisoner in your body. The looking glass is meditation. It is going beyond the illusion of time, space, personality, and form. When you break the patterns that keep you addicted to the same feelings over and over, causing the same emotions to spring up, you will become a new person. You are no longer attached to the limiting feeling and you have closed the gap between you and you. You will have traveled through the looking glass and reflecting back a new you!

Do you get overwhelmed by all the people, places and things in your life? Many people are relying more and more on medication, alcohol, and illegal substances to calm their nerves and ease their mind. However, all of these external things are a quick fix to the problem and bandage to the real cause of what’s really going on. A Panic attack, is a feeling in your mind and body that overtakes your ability to function in a healthy way. It is as if your mind is being taking over by bandits. There’s mutiny in your mind, and you are wrestling with the enemy;yourself. The chatter, confusion, and sheer panic that is expressed in your body can feel like every nerve is on fire. So, how do you stop the madness? You must first understand that your conscious and subconscious mind are at odds. Next, you have to become aware of the negative emotions that have been stored in your subconscious mind and release them through practice, meditation, and techniques to calm and center the mind. There is help. In today’s busy world, you can find the peace within to withstand any storm that might be ragging outside of you.

Faith is finding answers in the heart. Sometimes life can be very challenging, and we’re, not sure how to move forward. Faith, will always guide you when you just take that first step. Faith cannot be seen by the eyes, or heard by the ears, but rather, felt by the heart. It is a trusting that all is moving towards the good when you take that leap of faith. You must first feed your mind with encouraging words. Then translate these thoughts into feelings that will begin to be supported by faith to begin believing in yourself. Every step you take to empower yourself, you are stepping into faith. Your faith will get stronger and stronger as you continually trust in yourself.
Faith comes from within. Nothing in the physical world will give it to you. You must develop it from within your mind and spirit. Fear will always test your faith. Whatever beliefs you grew up with that are keeping you stuck in feelings of lack, limitation, or unworthiness, needs to be transmuted into a life of faith. Faith can be developed, by meditation, study, prayer, forgiveness, love, and practice. Every day you can either live in fear, which will hold you back, and keep you imprisoned or move forward with faith. Life becomes a glorious adventure of freedom when you trust in your higher power and live in faith. I choose faith and freedom. How about you?

We are living in a time of massive change that is quite unsettling for many people. If you are not equip with the tools to navigate these changes, you will be pulled under and expect things to settle down and go back to normal. However, there is no normal anymore, nor will there ever be a normal again. The new normal is constant change. We need to learn from the past, live in the now, and prepare for the future. That is, the new normal. Through the art of meditation, spiritual practice, cooperation, and creating new ideas for a sustainable future we can create a world that is collaborating for the good of all. We are living in the age of consciousness and waking up to the manifest, beautiful souls that we are.
However we can not continue to live life as usual. These are times of sacred activism and rethinking how we can assist others. This is the new normal. Together we can build a beautiful, sustainable brave new world.
