Unplug

Unplug

What steps do you take when you become overwhelmed with the everyday stresses of life?  Perhaps you take a day off and spend it in nature.  Or maybe you book a day at the spa.  What if you can’t get a whole day to yourself, what then?  Maybe you take a long bubble bath,  spend an extra hour at the gym or take a walk/run sometime during the day.  Some of you may have a meditation practice and you retreat inward to reconnect.

Everyone is flooded with information overload.  The modern day of technology keeps us plugged in 24/7 if we allow it.  As a business owner I find I am on my computer more than I truly enjoy.  Between keeping up with social media and daily business practice answering emails and keeping records it can be a bit much.  This past week I hit the reset button.  I found myself not having fun; the excitement was missing so I knew it was time to unplug and rejuvenate.

Keeping your inner child happy is vital to living a fulfilling life. Your inner child is no different then any other child and sometimes the child just wants to play.  Taking a day of play feels really good and I encourage you to schedule those days as hard dates in your calendar.  Treat them like you would any other important appointment.  It will give you a whole new perspective and perhaps the one thing you are struggling with will look completely different after a day of play.

Struggling for ideas, consider….

  •  Going to the playground without the kids and swing on the swings or go down the sliding board.
  • On a beautiful sunny day, look up and gaze at the clouds.  What do you see?
  • Stop and listen to the background noises your mind automatically filters out, the birds chirping, the sound of the wind rustling through the trees, footsteps…
  • Watch a sunset and count the colors.
  • Go on a hike in nature or take a slow walk and really look at your surroundings.  Remember it’s not about getting to the finish line, it’s the journey that counts.
  • Do something for yourself that you normally consider a luxury.
  • Go on a day trip and enjoy the ride.
  • Climb a tree.

Be spontaneous!  Sometimes it good to be alone and other times it’s fun to take someone with you.  Whatever activity makes you smile when you think about it, is a perfect play activity!  Remind yourself of what you liked doing as a kid and just go for it!

You & Your Shadow

Posted by on May 19, 2014

You & Your Shadow

When you stand in the sunlight you can see your shadow; but do you hear your shadow?  The shadow I’m referring to the that little voice that you hear in your head, the ongoing mind chatter that is always judging you in some way.  Some look at this voice as the bad self or the wrong self.  I choose to look at the shadow as the limited self.  The shadow self or ego can only speak about a belief system it has learned either from a previous experience or from a belief.  Many of the beliefs carried to adulthood were learned from someone else and they can be limited and fixed.  A viewpoint that is limited can keep you in a small safe box.  Usually, this perceived safety looks and feels like fear and lack.  When decisions are made from the point of fear or lack it becomes easy to blame others for life experiences.  A person who lives in fear and is full of worry and anger, often wondering why is this happening to me.  Their entire focus is on what they don’t have or what is wrong with their life.  What happens next?  Law of Attraction; what you focus on is what you attract.

What is the alternative?  First, changing your focus will change your experience. We are spirit beings have a human experience.  Our spirit is limitless.  When you live your life from spirit you are open to all the possibilities; knowing and trusting that your higher self knows what is best for you.

Is it possible to live life totally from spirit?  I’ve often asked this question and I do believe it is possible; although I believe most of us strive for a healthy balance between the two. Since we are human, the shadow self is needed for the logical part of life decisions.  It aids us in manifesting what we desire.  The dance is not letting the shadow self control you.  It is important to acknowledge and love your shadow self.  Pushing it away only makes it stronger.

Here are a few tips that have helped me over the years to make friends with my shadow self.

Tip 1:

When your mind is on overload and you witness all these conversations going on at once, not knowing what to listen to, stop and scan your body.  Are you breathing easily or are you holding your breath?  Do you feel tension in your shoulders?  Are your shoulders scrunched up around your ears?  Is your jaw tightly clenched? Take a moment and receive deep breaths, breathing into the tension in your body and allow your body to relax.  Let your tongue relax gently on the roof of your mouth as you let your jaw drop.  Move your shoulders down and sink into your seat.

You will begin to notice the mind chatter starts to quiet when you start to relax.

Tip 2:

The mind chatter sounds like this:  You don’t know what you are doing.  Who do you think you are?  Why did you do this?  You are so stupid.  You idiot.  You can’t do this.

Notice a common denominator…the word “You”.  Whenever the shadow self speaks it always uses the word “you”.

When it is your spirit speaks the word used is “I”.

Tip 3:

The shadow self wants to be heard and appreciated.  It will become relentless until it’s acknowledged.  It also thrives on fear.  Giving into the fear makes it stronger.  Emotions like worry make it stronger.  It can become a vicious cycle that is all driven by fear.  How do you move out of fear?  One way is to acknowledge what your shadow self is saying.  This is an example of the type of conversations I have with my shadow self.

“Yes, I hear you.  I know you are scared and I know you only want the very best for me.  I love you and I want you to know that I am fine.  I’ve got this covered so there is not need to be afraid, we are okay.”  After I have this conversation I can see a mental image of my shadow self walking away with a big smile singing, she heard me and she loves me, life is good.”

The greatest gift you have, is your intuition.  Listen to your instincts as they always serve you and your highest good.   Develop a practice when you can quiet your mind and go deep within your heart.  You have your own answers to all of your questions.  It just takes trusting and loving yourself to tap into the answers.

Celebrating Your Life!

Posted by on May 12, 2014

Celebrating Your Life!

During the year we collectively celebrate many things; birthdays, anniversaries, religious holidays, national holidays, it seems the list can be endless.  There is a Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Grandparent’s Day, Boss’s Day, Professional’s Day, Teacher’s Day, Nurse’s Day, Earth Day just to name a few.

So I ask, why do we only celebrate on specific days?  Isn’t everyday we’re alive worth some sort of acknowledgment?  Imagine celebrating “You” everyday.  Can you see how your life may look different?  Can you see yourself creating the life you desire?

During a coaching session a client expressed his desire for a joyful life but didn’t see how he could manage a happy attitude 24/7 with all the pressures and stresses he had in his life.  We had a conversation about what joy or happiness looked and felt like for him.

(There is a difference between being happy and being joyful.  Happiness can be short lived and is normally based on outside forces or things; whereas,  joy resides in the heart.  It comes from within and is unshakable.)

My client agreed to a little experiment.  First we agreed that he would be conscious about living in the moment, as best he could.   He would start his day off each and every morning looking in the mirror and saying something positive about himself; acknowledging his uniqueness and his talents.  During the day whenever he found himself angry, unhappy, or frustrated he would take a moment and reflect at what was behind the emotion.  I also challenged him not to complain about anything and whenever he noticed he was complaining he would pause and reflect on what triggered the complaint or negativity.  I encouraged him to keep a journal during this timeframe so we could discuss the results.  The next week, my client had seen major shifts in his attitude because he became aware of his triggers and by living consciously he was able to shift out of the negativity easily.

We become programmed by our experiences, living on autopilot.  Most of the time we don’t even realize we are complaining during the course of the day.  Complaining is a low vibrational energy and will attract more of the same.  It’s the Law of Attraction, what you think and feel is what you attract more of.

Life delivers many obstacles and challenges, it is how you learn and how you grow.  If you can change something to create a different outcome, then by all means make the change.  If it isn’t possible to change it; then the only thing you can do is accept it and go with the flow.  Complaining about it will not solve the problem or make life easier.  Looking outside of yourself will not solve anything, it all starts with you and it comes from within.  Start by celebrating you everyday!  Embrace your uniqueness and your gifts.  There is only one of you and you were divinely created to be here on this planet right here and right now.  You have gifts to offer, share your gifts, share you light.  Live your life fully, appreciating each and every day.  Stay in the space of gratitude and love and watch how your life shifts.  What will you gain?  You will gain joy in your heart and an inner peace that cannot be shaken!  Remember you deserve this, it is your birthright!

Vulnerability equals Courage

Posted by on May 5, 2014

Vulnerability equals Courage

“Vulnerability is not weakness.  And that myth is profoundly dangerous.  Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change.”   ~ Brene Brown

 

What does being vulnerable mean to you?  The literal definition of the word “vulnerable” from the dictionary is “susceptible to physical or emotional attack or harm”.  Does this make you feel uncomfortable or fearful?  Is there a knot in the pit of your stomach?

I can only speak about my experience of being vulnerable and it wasn’t an option for me growing up.  I was often told I was too sensitive, I wore my heart on my sleeve, I needed to toughen up.  Sensitivity and vulnerability were looked upon as a weakness; something that needed to be changed or fixed.  What were the effects of these statements in my life?  I became an island of sorts; thinking that I had to solve all my problems on my own.  Asking for support or even guidance was being weak and I had to be strong for everyone around me.  Carrying this around for many years created a persona of sorts.  Honestly, I put up facades, wearing masks, always covering up my true feelings and emotions to the point where I didn’t even recognize my truth.  It took years to unravel my truth around vulnerability.

This is not a healthy, joyful way to live life.  Being vulnerable, leaning on someone for support is a form of great courage.  It breaks down walls and allows others to witness your true self, your true beauty.  It also provides opportunities for others to be of service to you and that is a gift from your heart to them.

What is being in service to someone?  It is giving without the expectation of receiving something in return.  Think back on the last time you were in service to someone, how did you feel?   To be appreciated and feel valued is true bliss.  It doesn’t get any better than that!

It takes tremendous courage to stand up and say out loud, I deserve assistance.  This transparency can open you to ridicule; but it will also open you to unconditional love.  Is the risk worth taking to receive unconditional love, the greatest gift of all?  My answer is yes, most definitely!

Always remember if anyone attacks you emotionally with hateful, hurtful words it isn’t about you.  It is a reflection of how they feel about themselves.  Knowing this makes it easier to navigate around these situations and allows you to show compassion towards them.  People who hate live in a very low, dark energy vibration.  Showing compassion, loving them regardless has a ripple effect on their behavior.  Even if they don’t realize or acknowledge the changed feeling consciously,  I guarantee they experience something different sub-consciously.

Personally, I would love to remove the word “hate” from our vocabulary.  Become mindful; it’s a word people overuse to make a point.  You can dislike something or not agree without “hating” it.  Teach the children something different to express their dislike.  Small changes like this have a huge ripple effect on our existence.
