Studying Harriet Tubman's life has made me a believer in praying for help. When I first began to follow her example, I had a difficult time discerning the guidance coming my way. Yet it's still possible for us to learn how to hear and carry out the internal guidance we receive.
As I've started to explore more outside of urban radio and hip hop blogs for inspiring and interesting music, I've been pulled in what feels like a thousand different directions. Dozens of musical genres float in and out of my musical landscape on a daily basis.
Your answers have come from your true self, your heart, who you are -- and that means you can count on your plan, trust it, and let it guide you toward making the changes and achieving the results you care about mos
I emerged from the subway to a crisp Sunday afternoon with clear skies and snowflakes on the sidewalk and as I was thinking about what chores I had to do that evening I heard a woman say, "Excuse me, do you have the time?"
Right there, I intimately felt the power of now. I'd read about it, heard about it, and had seen more than one book title containing those words, yet I'd never understood it until that unexpected and routine moment of time.
How do you deal with each change is going to determine whether it will spur you on to happiness, greater accomplishments, and peace -- eustress, or reduce you to frustration, lowered productivity and regret -- distress.
In the years I've been doing this work, I've noticed that insights are a lot like butterflies -- while there are things you can do to make them more or less likely, it's ultimately not up to us when they land.
Upon meeting someone new, part of me hopes I will never hear the dreaded four words (what-do-you-do) because then I wouldn't have to assess how I am going to respond -- with my pragmatic communications-consultant role, or with the idealistic wanting-to-save-the-world profile.
Your inner voice that tells you that you can accomplish something is a positive and healthy one. The more you listen to it and trust it, the more likely you will be successful at whatever you're attempting to do.
Lately, I hear more and more people across different disciplines and walks of life talking about the heart. People seem to be waking up to the wisdom of letting their hearts guide them, finding it leads them to more joy and fulfillment. This is news that does my heart good.
Intuition offers a direct line to your life force, and also, as I experience it, to a divine intelligence. We can't afford to remain deaf to intuition's messages. Its expertise is energy; its job is to know every nuance of what makes you tick.
Decisions and choices give momentum and then we are rolling. From there, energy can move and things can land. The choice is ours. We can't do anything wrong, and we can always make new choices. Things are rarely so serious and final as they seem.
Having lived more than half my life, I've gained a perspective I describe as the backward look that may be beneficial to persons of any age, but particularly to those who still have more than half their lives to live.
If used mindfully, the calendar is a wonderful tool with which you can measure your year before living it -- intentionally pacing yourself with a rhythm that suits and honors your life spiritually, mentally and physically.
