Questioning the status quo in your life is a way to reveal and honor your authentic self. An autopilot response is based on the past and someone else's choice or desire. In order to evolve and grow, you have to be willing to honor your authentic feelings and beliefs as they evolve.
I've learned that the world only wants one thing from us: our authentic truth. Throughout my life, the more "me" I've become, the more powerful I am. Today's vlog speaks to the power of sharing your authenticity with the world.
The nature of your thinking (free and easy vs. bound up) creates your feelings. Your feelings create your mood. Your mood then perpetuates the nature of your thinking, forming a closed loop that is immune to the circumstances of the outside world.
From a metaphysical and metaphorical perspective, the process of casting, relative to our spiritual evolution, can be likened to our soul being poured into the mold of our present-time body, which is itself cast to play a specific role and intentioned life purpose.
This weekend, allow yourself the time and space to put thoughts into words (which makes you more accountable and, therefore, more likely to act upon them). Living the life you deserve that is in line with your truth is worth the time and effort.
One great sadness in my life is the seeming lack of magic that can, when tended, illuminate people from the inside. These are the people who, when we meet them, give out a real sense that here is someone doing justice to a life.
The next time you aren't taking into consideration the feelings of others, it's perfectly normal and okay. Just remember, the self-centered feeling within you is actually your custom-designed reminder that it's you that is off, not the world around you.
When two people come together because they want to learn together, grow together, heal together, share their time and companionship, and share their love and passion, they have a good chance of creating a lasting, loving relationship.
A few weeks ago I lost my 17-year-old chihuahua. Saddled with sadness, I lost all interest in sex -- a very bad thing when you make your living off selling it. Not only did I not want to have sex, but I didn't want to think about it, look at it, write about it, or even tweet about it.
Now that it's fall and we're clearing out our summer clothes for what feels good to wear in the new season, let's clear out our negative self-thoughts and only wear words that contribute to our self-esteem.
Resilience is a popular buzzword, but what really is resilience? Most people are able to define it as the ability to bounce back from adversity, but few realize that resilience is made up of a number of different skills and abilities.
When used properly, questions have the potential to connect us to the world of another. A heartfelt "How are you?" or "How was your day?" can become the bridge that keeps us in relationship to the lives of those we love.
We all want to change something. Most of us have tried and had either fleeting success or chalked up a failure. The way we think about change is the problem. In this arena (unlike most), we think too much. We usually think our way to keeping things exactly as they are.
Triggers can be an incredible ally. Triggers lead to what needs healing. Instead of being ashamed of being triggered, get excited because you have a clue for where to do your work! Triggers lead you on the path you need to go.
We either get pulled down by our resistances, into the safe comfort of what is known, or we make peace with the fact that we have resistances. We don't actually overcome them at this point, but we can make peace with them.
When we practice Radical Acceptance, we begin with the fears and wounds of our own life and
discover that our heart of compassion widens endlessly. In holding ourselves with compassion,
we become free to love this living world.
