At a time when we hear so much about what people are not doing and what people need to do to act responsibly, I offer my simple truth. Uncomplicated gestures move mountains and deserve to be acknowledged.
Choose freedom. Dare to think for yourself. Your very choice is an expression of affection for the true you. I think Alan Watts would agree there is no more noble act than to elevate your consciousness above the roar of what others have to say, so you can hear what you have to say.
Self-awareness is the key to long-term weight loss and weight maintenance. That means paying attention to what we think, what we put into our bodies and how we feel. If these thoughts are below the conscious level, then we can do nothing to change them.
Designing your career destiny takes courage, strength and commitment. As you look to celebrate all that you've accomplished in 2012, consider the following gifts to yourself that cost nothing but are truly priceless.
Although there's no official diagnosis for Internet or social media addiction, in my view, if it negatively impacts other areas of a person's life and use becomes more and more frequent, then at minimum it's a dependence, and at worst it's an addiction. Don't fear, though -- it is treatable.
Work. Just the word can cause your stress level to rise. But what most of us don't realize is that we can use our brains to control our stress response wherever we are right now. Here are four ways to de-stress without even leaving your desk.
As one of my favorite manifesting teachers, Neville Goddard, asks: "What thoughts are you 'consenting' to?" I love that he used the word "consent," because it describes the active role each of us has with our thoughts, as author of our mental habits.
Fear often shows up when we face the unknown. The heightened energy of fear can serve to put you on alert, to find the information or resources you might need for the future, to stimulate your creativity and imagination to fulfill your goals and objectives.
Letting go makes way for something closer to your truth, which is always more beautiful. Always. Making space signals to the universe that you're ready for ideal -- or, at the very least, much improved.
Remember when you learned to drive a car? Didn't you need to know some basics about the car's equipment? Maybe you didn't need to know specifically how the fuel injectors interact with the fuel pump. But you at least had to understand that the gas pedal gets you moving.
How do you feel about change? If you're anything like me, you probably have mixed feelings about it. While it often depends on our perception of the type of change -- big or small, good or bad, needed or unnecessary, easy or hard, etc. - most of us seek and fear change simultaneously.
Most of us take a reactive approach to media, entertainment and art. We turn to these for many reasons, but not often to help us improve our lives in a proactive way. Yet there's a growing body of research that shows it has the power to do just that.
To me, if you want to perform your best, love, compassion, spirit, and concern for others are absolutely essential, and here's why: They don't require deliberate thought. They are the byproduct of consciousness.
Honoring your intuition is a practice, and it's easy to begin. Start right now. Then make a commitment to honor it in all things big and small. The more you practice, the more quickly you'll become an expert.
Never let someone else tell you that honoring your intuition and gut to leave a situation they deem to be "just fine" means you're ungrateful. Be grateful for what you have -- but take action to make changes anyway.
It all comes down to stories. The stories we tell ourselves and the stories we tell others. Every online dating profile I read is a narrative... an intimate — if calculated — snapshot of a soul. Every profile I read forces me to compare and contrast — his story to mine, my narrative to his.
When you're trying to change your life -- for example, get results like more money, a better career, better health, happier relationships, and so forth -- what you're really trying to do is create a new reality.
Your intent -- whether to control and avoid, or to love yourself and share your love with others -- is the main choice that can determine whether your holidays are stressful and lonely, or peaceful and fulfilling.
I'm in no way suggesting that hurt and depression are good places to hang out. They're not. I'm all about happiness, joy and fulfillment! However, when things in your life aren't working or you're feeling down and overwhelmed, sometimes you have to fall apart.
