Sharing why I decided to do a fast.

Why did I have such a strong withdrawal on my first day of water fasting?

And why I decided to simply add Coconut Water to my water!

Who holds the key 🔑 to your Happiness?

Do you know where your power lies?

Do you give away your Power cowering in fear of what you perceive to be more powerful than you?

Power is innate & a part of our natural state!  Nobody can take that away from you without your permission!

Force is the speeding up & the appearance of having Power & will inevitably fail because it is unnatural & out of sync with Source.

What’s the operating system you have running your Mind? 
Do you realize that your thoughts dictate what your experiences will be?
How running over the same old story in your Mind is just recreating those repeated experiences for you?
How does this shape what you see, experience, & draw to you?

For starters, whatever you look for you will find even if you don’t realize that’s where your focus actually is.

For example, have you tried to blame “Murphy’s Law” for why you “knew something would happen!?”

This is actually the biggest scapegoat out there because we are the ones who create the “something!”

Most of the time this is so habitual or unconscious for us we rarely connect the dots of where our single-minded focus really is at any given moment!

I know this from my own experience because I realized my tendency was to look for negative things to point out or pick at.  It took Mindfulness & a constant retraining of where I focused my attention but over time it demonstrated how when I looked for the positive, it far exceeded my previous experiences!

My life took on a completely different direction & synchronicity took over with what I desired versus what I feared!

BeTheChangeQuote

It’s time for an upgrade! 

Change those thoughts that are creating your reality!

Remember this movie called The Neverending Story – where The Nothing was really a shift in focus!  It was a profound story where the reason the land was dying was because of the state of despair the child’s mind was fixed on. Very similarly, focusing on all of the hopeless events outside of ourselves is overshadowing all of the equally, if not more prevalent blessings & gifts available to us all!  Which do you choose to look for?

Any extreme attention to what you may consider an “injustice” really is one way to remove yourself from personal accountability for your own life & an exercise in denying your own unhealed life traumas & pains.

Whenever you try to fix the conditions around you you’re doing yourself an injustice because it’s the internal conditions that determine them & without working on yourself, you end up going without – in essence creating your own self-perpetuated continuous suffering

Nothing is harsher than giving your power away to circumstances completely outside of your immediate control.

Pointing them out the world’s problems doesn’t fix nor solve them but keeps you from being in your joy & evolving. A great lesson in how “Talk is cheap!
But ever so much more worthless if you’re not working toward a solution!”

If more of us were to work on being happy in our own lives instead of buying into the mass media influenced & thus, Self-induced suffering around the world, we’d see a significant shift in everything & everyone around us.

Looking for the argument will give you just that!  An Argument…
Looking to defend yourself, will give you an attack to which you’ll need to defend yourself!

I know because I used to look to defend myself from the stance of a victim mentality & I drew many an attack unto myself as a result.

I can see the lesson for me was to recognize how I was, & still am, personally responsible for the vibration, energy, mental state & awareness I bring forth in every moment of my life!

If I have an uncomfortable experience, I know I need to step back & see what it is telling me about myself – where I’m at in my single-minded focus & how I arrived there…

How can you apply single-minded focus in your own life?

June Jordan’s quote rings the truth that

“We are the ones we have been waiting for!”

Ghandi just reminds us to “Be the change you wish to see in the world!”

Because, ultimately, everything starts individual with ME & with YOU!
Nothing can be accomplished if we try to start outside…it all has to come from within, at the root, the source of All!

🕰 Ego is Time ~ Time is Ego! 🕰
Confines, Restrictions, Control

The Ego likes to have everything defined because that’s its subtle way of feeling “in control!”

It’s not about the quality or the deep indescribable connection! Because the key is in the Indescribable ~ that which cannot be confined!
😊

ego-is-a-social-fiction-for-which-one-person-at-a-time-gets-all-the-blame-quote-1

We’re all Perfect where we’re at! We evolve through life & when something triggers us it’s because of an attachment to a belief or unhealed experience… judgement is simply us comparing ourselves; deciding what resonates & what doesn’t while projecting it upon others or situations!  This projection is the root of all of our Stress in this life!

When we’re feeling the need to judge it’s simply a reflection of an insecure Ego Mind!  Your Ego wants to feel safe & secure so it seeks to be right in order to accomplish this.  It looks outside to elevate itself so that it can hide this insecurity in secret ~ to mask it.

youre-too-blessed-to-be-stressed-quote-1

Haven’t you felt exhausted from being around certain people!?  Well, that’s exactly what’s draining you ~ the constant energy you expend comparing & contrasting your filtered experiences to those around you!  It’s when you’re expending this energy judging & projecting that the Ego is seeking its security!

“Let that shit go homie!” 😉

Only the Ego wants to be Right!  The Heart wants to be Happy!

egoseeksloveheartlovesquote

“My secret to happiness, I don’t MIND what happens.”
– Jiddu Krishnamurti

To be free of your stress is to put that Ego Mind in check…let it serve you & recognize where the green pastures are in your own life!  Too many of us are looking outside of ourselves for happiness or to see what someone else has when we have everything we need within us.

Expel the stress by feeling gratitude for your own life & all you have here & now!

“How you do anything is how you do everything!” ~ T Harv Eker

When we recognize this for ourselves this naturally radiates out & extends out to all those around us!

My personal confession…
I haven’t always been as compassionate for others as I claimed to be.

Heck, I wasn’t always that kind to myself so how could I know how to express it!?

At the same time, you could see my desperate for acceptance, connection/love, recognition, & validation from others through my actions.

I mean, I had always been a meat eater while claiming to eat animals.

It took me some serious searching within to recognize my own hypocrisy.

This was exceptionally humbling because I see how we have to walk this life in Conscious Awareness in all that we do, think, & believe.

img_7445

What is it that motivates us?

Why is it so difficult for us to accept that what we all truly want is to connect & feel loved in this life?

Why do we allow external sources to influence what we all innately know in our hearts to be true?

Right now our stuff is really in our faces!  Whether people want to admit it, or not, we all have our inner demons we wish we didn’t have to be confront with.  The key is to accept them, confront them, & work on healing them.

If we claim to want to be accepted for who we are, why not see that that’s simply what we all are?

How compassionate are we really if we can’t even step up & accept ourselves!?

That’s really where it all begins ~ with Self!

💫The Wisdom of the Mind💫

One of the biggest lessons I received in 2016 was how I was able to recognize through self-inquiry & reflection on my Mind; the old thought patterns & beliefs were confronting me but this year I tuned into them & witnessed them for what they were telling me about myself!

I had to see that when my Mind went into so much of a tailspin, it really simply was my Ego. My Ego could turn my feelings about how someone treated me or failed to show up for me the way I wanted them to by making it all about me when it never had anything to do with me at all!

thinktoohardproblems

Thinking, continuous thinking caused fears & illusions to pop up that were unfounded & wasted precious time & energy!

It was what caused my suffering & depression taking me out of my Personal Power!

My Ego simply wanted to be acknowledged because that is how it perceives Love to be – through a certain ideal experience; my Ego Mind wanted to receive Love! The truth is that it doesn’t know what Love looks like or truly feels like because it has kept a distant view… taking in only what has been around me or seen in movies, books, sensationalized…

The Ego doesn’t really experience anything but instead acts as a watch-guard. It sees everything through the filters of your experiences & watches as you react or respond to them as they come waiting for that moment it has to launch forward in your defense because its purest of intentions is to protect you from harm ~ physical & emotional!

Love is all around but looking for or expecting it to be a certain way was getting in the way.

My Ego just needed & needs to be embraced more & allowed to see Love in All! ❤️

“Honoring & Meeting Yourself/Others where you’re/they’re at!”

self-worth-never-confuse-self-love-with-ego

What is Judgment?
Simply defined, “it’s when you come to a conclusion or have an opinion…evaluation of evidence to make a decision.”

We are all judging based on our own life experiences ~ this is not the truth we all know but our individual truth!  When someone tells you their experience, it doesn’t make it fact of all who were involved because we all can have been involved but never ever have the same exact experience as anyone else!  It’s just that our Ego looks to relate & connect with others through experiences.

self_acceptance_quotes

“Sometimes my inner child really just wants to be heard while my inner wise woman recognizes this & holds the space allowing her to vent because ultimately She knows what is needed to heal & how honoring that gives way to release! My inner wise woman is able to witness knowingly & allow my inner child the space to BE with what she feels….because my inner wise woman is Aware & knows it is all perfect as she accepts herself at all stages throughout her life!”

I truly witnessed myself wanting & needing to be heard at different stages throughout the year & this was humbling as I was also able to recognize it in others as a result.  In fact, it made it even more profound when I was able to hold space to connect & truly listen to others who also needed it!

“It’s through the Awareness & Acceptance of All of You that the healing begins!”

As much as people want to think that I am the spiritual strong arm & nothing bothers me, I’m still human & sometimes my feelings get hurt!

I have my strengths & weaknesses just like everyone else!

I am extremely hard on myself ~ even more so when others point out or remind me of my shortcomings!

Over these years I’ve spent my time working on Me & my deep traumas/pains, patterns, & behaviors. It certainly hasn’t been the easiest ride. It has definitely been insightful, rewarding, frustrating, & vulnerable but I also see the beauty in how those around me have benefited & grown on their own through my changes…

It’s brought me closer to family because I see patterns I inherited/learned causing me to be humble & have compassion for this awareness.

To see what others are unable to see because they’re not yet ready to see but with hope that when their time comes, they will – in their own time & not what I would “want or expect” them to!  We didn’t figure it out overnight ourselves so we need to honor each person where they’re at now.

Truly, life may not be the easiest but it certainly doesn’t need to be as difficult as we make it.

We just need to be patient, kind, & loving towards ourselves, as well as, others!

“Let your Breath dictate the Breadth of your Life! The more conscious, deeper & fuller your breath, the more fulfilling your life! Let your breath expand within & your life …”

Its in the experience you’ll find your freedom from suffering!

See the Pattern

💫“See the Pattern” ~ Recognize Your Patterns 💫

Watch the video here:
https://youtu.be/q55EQyLcEOs

We are Creatures of Habit because it’s comfortable to stay in the known even if it’s uncomfortable!

This is how change starts! The only way change can occur is for you to initially recognize in yourself what it is that holds you back from change.

So, first you must be aware of a particular pattern that keeps you stuck in the same routine, habits, mundane, familiar…

Then, just observe how it comes up in your life…Repeatedly!

Is it a reaction to an emotion?
Is the pattern simply a routine that is not yielding you joy in your life?
Is it an addictive pattern?

Now once you have identified the pattern, simply witness it without judging it & ask yourself:
“When did this begin? From what point did this pattern originate in my life?”

Sit with it, keep asking yourself questions to challenge why it exists…
Journal what comes up as a cathartic healing & release of old wounds! 

You’ll build even more awareness as things you might have forgotten also begin to surface for you!

Ask yourself “how is this serving me?”

How can I release this pattern for something more fulfilling?

LevelofAwareness

You have to recognize that every pattern/habit/routine serves us in our life but it’s important to see when it’s past it’s “expiration date & efficacy” in your life!

“See the Pattern?”

One of the main things that people get upset at is they assume others should just know their boundaries/limitations. When in fact, they don’t even know for themselves.

So when a person feels like someone is taking advantage of them, it’s mostly because they’re expecting the other person to recognize when enough is enough [for them]…or when they should stop imposing. That idea that people should just “know”…doesn’t serve anyone because it’s uncommunicated!

The reality is the individual just keeps on giving without recognizing for themselves when enough is enough! 

What is the underlying drive that causes them to keep on giving?

Simple – they want to be liked & accepted!

Those that claim they do it from their heart but still get upset, have an expectation of something in return… So, it is not as genuine as they claim.

True genuine giving has no strings attached!

We all want to connect with, feel loved & appreciated by others!

The pattern to recognize & ask yourself is whether or not you are compromising your self in order to feel validated, liked, or accepted by others.

Do you give without expectation or do you do it for something in return?

Don’t let the mind trick you into thinking you do  if you’re still getting upset by the giving!

Expectations are our own self-created saboteurs causing us stress, pain & suffering!

Here’s the deal:
We all have those friends we claim let us down. But just like the saying goes the definition of crazy is doing the same thing over & over again still expecting different results…

It’s the same in the way we think! If we continue to have the same thought patterns, we will continue to experience the same unwanted repeated experiences…

Example of this is:  You have that friend who you claim lets you down but you still hope for them to prove you wrong while also still holding onto the reminder of their past behaviors – this is creating a conflict in you & since you’ve been let down in the past by them, you actually are looking for them to do it again – this is where the Ego Mind also feels superior when they do & points out, “See, I was right!  I told you they keep doing…”

See the pattern for what it is telling you!

It’s not the person doing this to you because they’re just being who they are (Integrity & Character) & making it clear what their patterns are.

The bigger thing is for you to recognize your own patterns of thought & how you respond to them!

Then, for you to change how you respond to what you recognize as a pattern in another & accept these people where they are without holding those expectations which continue to let you down against them or yourself!

Watch Brain Waves & Brain Coupling ~ Jason Silva

What I gleaned in the short 3 minute video on Brain Coupling was simply how it has been scientifically proven to show that the brains of 2 people who connect deeply with one another will actually synchronize to one another. There is no coincidence in this but to see science proving how we’re all connected brings us closer to accepting our influences through the energy sent out via thoughts.

So, if you respond differently to another person, you also are sending out a new brainwave to disrupt the repeated thought patterns shared & also giving a glimmer of something new that sets the domino in motion! 

What do you think?

We aren’t here to live this life in the seriousness of constant struggle, pain & suffering.  We’re here to live a life of joy, fun, laughter, & love!

So what is it that has made it so darned complicated?

Since when did the choice to be right overtake the choice to be happy or to love one another versus competing & putting them down?

The US was founded upon the Freedom to choose – in all aspects of life!  Albeit, there are many historical events we will never know & some brought to our attention were not what we’d been originally told only to learn history is altered to protect people’s interests. 

Why all the lies, the deceit, & distrust?

Who can we trust?  
Why do we resist what we know in the deepest parts of our beings?

Let’s not regret our choices by placing the focus on what we think we should do or have been conditioned to believe is the right way/path to follow!

“Those that fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it.” 
~ Winston Churchill

We want to Free our Ancestors from their mistakes – they were unable to change their choices & provided plenty of examples of regret & remorse for them… Let’s not finish this life with regret for what we wished we had done & just do it!

Don’t you want to make them proud by making a better life for yourself as they would want for you!?  
To build a the life that they had actually hoped for themselves but lost sight of by being caught in the trap of old paradigms & ways of thinking!?

Do you like me for me, what I can do for you, what I represent, or how I make you feel?

In any case, there’s no denying we like people for how they make us feel!

Sometimes it’s to feel a connection or to be validated for beliefs we may similarly hold but sometimes it’s superficial in belonging to a clique, association, group, team, political party, movement, passion, etc… but what draws us to those things?

They’re not who we are but part of what we’ve accustomed to or always known or done – sometimes something you were introduced to via family like a sports team or a political party or school alma mater.  It’s out of routine & comfort we steer toward these arenas.

This is the major reason many of us need to peel back layers in our lives to challenge our beliefs, habits, routines, & lifestyles. 


Do these things truly represent who I am on the inside?


connectionquoteDo I like the people I associate with or do they simply provide an escapism from the life I’m living but also find myself unhappy with while still seeking something I still haven’t grasped?

Am I simply looking to change things up to avoid going within to confront myself & any unresolved painful memories?

We’re all going to have our attachments to certain beliefs but the key is finding neutrality where you don’t feel the need to defend your beliefs to anyone else & to honor & respect another’s beliefs that may differ from yours.

Stop looking for the argument or attack of shaming another, let alone yourself for the sole purpose of elevating your Ego!

Wars are based on trying to impose one set of ideals upon an opposing group. 

Have you seen how that plays out?

A clue to it is ~~>     Have you ever seen a war that was “won?”  

No, because it’s a continuous fight for people to overpower others by imposing their beliefs upon them.  To dishonor, take power over, & try to force people into taking on the same beliefs. 

Nobody wants this done to them so, why do we do it to others?

There is no such thing as a war that has been won!

I’ve heard people mock the statement “Why can’t we all just get along!?”

Because the Ego is strong!  Rarely does a person know themselves well enough to even consider what is right for another person but funny enough, we have all been raised in way to take care of thy neighbor as if we should only ever think of others & then, we project ourselves (experiences, beliefs, & ideals) upon them to top it off.
