Helping Live Your Dreams

When it comes to personal growth, there are so many topics, ideas, systems, thoughts and paths to choose. Eventually, they will all lead back to this one Truth: what you are seeking is within you.

In my life, I have had three major revelations that have helped me step out of thoughts of fear and lack and step into a life of greater & greater abundance.

Here they are:

1. Your Path will support you in manifesting your Purpose because It created you to do so.

2. Love is where you come from and It is your birthright. It is a basic principle to Love your Creator, Love yourself and Love your fellow beings with the same Love that you have for yourself.

3. Things always workout for the best.

By slowly realizing these principles above, my life has gone from itty-bitty tiny to huge.

 

If it’s true that the Path will support me in my purpose, then that means any thoughts I have and actions I do that are not aligned with my purpose are actually making my life harder, more stressful and less full. All those fearful thoughts of lack, all those doubting thoughts about whether I will be taken care of or not, have never proved to be true. What I had to do was sacrifice my ego’s desires and let go of any past identity of what I thought I “deserved” and instead, accept the gifts of my journey. From fragile beginnings the roots of my journey have begun to support a stronger hold on Life.

 

This will be the same for you. You WILL be supported, not in the way that you want to be, but in the way that you NEED to be.

 

If it’s true that Love is where you came from and that you gotta love your fellow beings the way you love yourself, it’s important that you love yourself; because if you hate yourself, then that means you’ll hate your neighbors, too. So it’s vitally important that you get to work on loving you. Eventually as you grow in the Love for yourself, you will be more and more full, and be able to share that love with others.

 

If you believe that things always work out for the best, then this will give you an empowered point of view through which to interpret the events of your life. When things go “wrong”, you’ll know it’s for the best and then make the best of it. This point of view is sooooo important to incorporate into your life. If you do, you will be able to overcome any challenge. And challenges will come on Your Path.

 

I’d love to hear your thoughts on these principles; they have helped me through good times and bad times. I believe if you incorporate them into your life, they will help you live your dreams, too.

Possibility is in YOUR Reach

Here’s a major block to getting what you want: scarcity or lack of consciousness.

 

What’s that mean? It means believing that there is not enough to go around. Doesn’t matter what you think it is, this applies to all forms of manifestations.

 

Love, money, success, happiness, whatever.

 

Buying into the belief that there is not enough will only hinder you.

 

Why? Well, first of all, in an INFINITE world the thought that there isn’t enough is just a straight lie.

 

This world is naturally abundant; it is we, the humans, who don’t understand this, and as a result create the temporary “experience” of lack. But, if we look deeper, we will see lack is just a belief we’ve bought into.

 

Don’t believe me? Try to count all the grains of sand on a beach, or all the cells in your body. There are TRILLIONS of cells in your body and even more grains of sand on this earth.

 

Some of the wealthiest people became wealthy during recessions and the Great Depression. Even recently companies like Groupon (which Google offered to buy for BILLIONS and was turned down) and Facebook are thriving and experienced huge growth during the recession.

 

This isn’t about lack of resources, love or friendship in the world. This is about a lack of inner love, possibility and friendship.

 

When you truly belong to yourself, when you trust your Higher Power, when you accept yourself, claim your talents and see possibility in the world, life starts to change.

 

Lack is an inner experience, not an outer reality. The reason why there is lack in the world is because human beings are not in alignment with the natural way of things. The majority of us are driven by fear and the belief in lack and separation from each other, so that is what most of us experience.

 

But we, the Seekers on The Journey perceive differently. We believe and experience an infinite supply. We are already connected to all that we wish to manifest. We leave room for miracles, synchronicity and GRACE to show up in our lives. We are co-Creators of our lives and so we are not victims of the way most people believe life to be.

 

We know there is more than enough out there and that we are more than enough “in here”. So there is no chase. There is only enjoyment of the present moment. When we want a new experience, we shift our intention, change our actions and persist with faith that all things are being done for our greatest good.

 

This shift from lack to abundance thinking is a game changer. Try it for one year, make your thoughts, intentions, actions and beliefs line up with the natural abundance of This Journey and see what happens.

 

I can promise you this, dear Reader- life will NEVER be the same again!

The Power of Thoughts

I realized something very different today. Here’s a liberating thought – you don’t have to believe every thought that you think. AND – not every thought that you think is true.

You might be conditioned to think – THIS ALWAYS HAPPENS TO ME.

Or perhaps – I DON’T DESERVE LOVE.

Or even better – I DON’T DESERVE TO BE HAPPY.

Since when did you let thoughts like this run your world? And who said you should believe them? And WHY do you believe them?

Today, here is a practice for you… Just for today, try NOT believing your thoughts. Just notice them.

When you have fearful thoughts, do not react, just notice. When you have thoughts of needing something outside yourself, do not react, just notice. When you have angry thoughts, do not react – just notice. When you have resentful thoughts, do not react, just notice.

If you want to live on this JOURNEY and reach your Highest Potential, it is essential that your awareness, your Soul, your Heart run the show. Do not buy into every thought that your mind believes. When you start to change your life, your mind will still believe the old thoughts and think that the newer and healthier thoughts are “weird”, “lies” or “cheesy”. None of these things are true.

If you want to step into a new way of being, then do not buy into what you think. Instead, learn to silence the mind through meditation (simply sit down for 15 minutes, close your eyes and focus on the breath entering and leaving your nose). When thoughts come up, just notice them and let them go.

It’s liberating to know that not everything you think is true, and it’s even more liberating to know that you have a CHOICE over which thoughts you want to believe.

Don’t Give Up

A lot of people tend to think, when they are pursuing their dreams, that when things aren’t going the way they “want” or the way they “planned”, that they should give up. Many people want to give up when things get a little tough. And it’s interesting to me to see how easy it is for people to BELIEVE the negative voice in their head, far more than their positive and neutral voices.

It’s almost like we are so afraid of getting our heart broken by our dream not coming true that any sign of setback, let down or unmet expectations are an excuse to stop trying.

But see, the thing is, walking on this JOURNEY will very rarely ever meet your “expectations”. The world speaks in paradox. What looks big, is usually small; what looks scary is usually joyful; what seems impossible is very much achievable and what seems hard can be easy. It’s just being able to understand the paradoxical nature of this JOURNEY as well as having the emotional fitness and humility to not have to buy into the thought that everything has to go “your way”.

Instead of judging a situation as “bad”, a “setback” or a “quitting point”, look at it this way… see… GRACE.

You have no idea how protected, guided and looked after you are. When you look back at this moment in a few weeks, months or years, you very well will look back and see a blessing instead of a setback. So train your mind to refrain from judging a situation. Believe in GRACE. Instead of running away from your dreams, just sit with the uncomfortable feelings, meditate, take care of yourself and let them pass through you.

Do not run away because it is uncomfortable. Stay BECAUSE it is uncomfortable. Let your fears be purified by facing them. Let your judgments fade by not reacting to them and seeing how they play out over time. Humble yourself and know that things don’t have to go YOUR WAY for you to be happy. There could be a way that is being guided from this JOURNEY that is much greater than you could ever imagine.

Emotional fitness, humility and a grace-filled mind will take you where you need to go. Let go of the judgments. Let go of the expectations and just show up fully with whatever you are feeling today. But do not turn back. Stay in the fire. You are not being burned – you are bring purified.

Merry Christmakwanzakah!

No matter what path you walk on in your life, religious, spiritual, atheist, yogic, nature, or none of the above I feel that today is a very special and symbolic day.

Far too often we use our differences to divide us. This group believes this, this group believes that – look how different we are. And while variety is indeed the spice of life and different points of view all help to push us forward to see the many sides of life; I think the most important thing to focus on this Holiday season, this Christmas is what our similarities are.

We may have a million differences, but if we can find even one similarity that is enough of a bond to rally and unite around. My belief is that the one thing we are share, above anything else, is the strong desire to Love and be Loved. This is what moves us, binds us and keeps us moving. To feel love in action is to feel and be alive. The animals and plant life we share this planet with know how to do this intuitively.

Being human, we are presented with a challenge. We have the gift of intuition, of trusting our inherent nature, but then we have this mind. And this mind of ours is a wonderful thing. The human mind is capable of such genius, such innovation and amazement that there truly is no limit. But this mind of ours also gets in the way. Doubt, fear, worry, anxiety, low-self-esteem, addiction, etc… all these things are by products of a mind that is not in sync with the natural knowing of our being.

My deep wish for you this Holiday season, on this Christmas Day is for you to know your authentic self. For all the outward shapes, relationships and things to not define you. To let your fears slip away and transform into trust and to know at once who you really are.

You, like all beings on this planet, are a child of the Universe and have a natural ability within you to thrive. This has nothing to do with possessions, social status or outward appearance. Who you truly are is infinite, indescribable and constantly changing.

This Christmas, give yourself the gift of your own authenticity. The chains of fear have held you long enough. The heavy weight of doubt no longer needs to be carried. Today, and everyday forward free yourself from who-you-think-you-are and simply be authentic. Many of us have less than we did last year. The global recession has made everyone “less” on paper, including me.

But what’s funny is that I have never felt more alive, more real or larger in my life. Being forced to lose things, which I placed my self worth in, made me reevaluate who I am, and what defines me. And what I’ve learned is that nothing defines me, but me. And I have 100% control over my actions, my choices and my response to life. I can’t control all of life, but I can control how I respond to it.

I believe many of our outside words have been made small, so that we can finally see and embrace how large we are within. When you find this power inside, it’s not a false power. It’s actually the only true thing we know, that we actually experience. And when you start to act from and trust this power within you, you start to look around and see that this same energy is inside everything else. This simplifies life. If the same power and energy is within us, to more we activate and cultivate our own power the more that power will be attracted to us from the outside.

Our false world is dying so that our true world, our bliss, our Heaven on earth can be born, from within. This is happening on a person by person basis.

This Christmas, I urge to know how large you are within yourself, to trust your natural abilities and talents and to act on your intuition, your primal knowing and trusting of life. Taking this step, trusting this coming of age will change your Life and set you up for an amazing and prosperous 2012.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays! May all the love, joy, abundance and peace be yours! Now and forever!

Just be…

Don’t play small! Stand up! Take Charge!

You are doing yourself and others a disservice by catering your actions towards how you think others will react.

Instead, just be yourself, be exactly as you are. When you are being yourself you will attract everything that is in alignment with who you truly are. You will be shocked to see who drops away.

Their absence will leave a space for new and amazing relationships to enter your life. Just be you, and let everyone else do what they may. You are not what others believe you to be, you are what you know you are and nothing else.

Just be.

You will be rewarded for your courage with a life that reflects your true essence instead of an invented identity created to “please others”.

Awwhhh… doesn’t it feel good to just be!?
