With all the calamities that have been occurring on the planet, what are the lessons that we can learn about life and ourselves? Most of us take our life on this planet for granted. When something dramatic happens, it forces us to re-evaluate the reason we are here and why we do what we do. Calamities, illness and death are the greatest teachers and awakeners. They shake us up and take us out of our comfort zone and illusion of separation. Our struggles and hardships give us opportunities to grow and realize that life is a temporary gift for us to love, cherish, and be grateful for.
When we let go of our non-love and negative self-thoughts, our true nature is revealed: a quiet presence, love, a peace beyond description. From this place we deal more patiently with our teenagers, eat more healthy, have no fear to tell those we care about that we love them, or drive in traffic with more calm. In short, life changes in all ways when we love ourselves and when we accept that the source of love we have been seeking is right here within ~ waiting for our attention.
We have all heard the phrase “You are the Master of your own Destiny”. What this means in Law of Attraction terms is that you create your reality and attract into your life circumstances that align to your current state of thinking. We all want to have the most amazing life possible (at least on a soul level – even if the subconscious is in conflict) – but do you have the ability to take the helm and steer your own life?
We search for love outside, but love is already around us and within us everywhere. We are so afraid to love and accept because we are so afraid of getting rejected. But until we learn to love ourselves, we will never be able to truly love anybody else. How do we stop rejecting ourselves? How do we stop being self-destructive? We have to stop pretending to be something we are not and find our authenticity again.
In order to consciously evolve and master ourselves, our attitude in each moment is what we should focus on as our gauge of personal mastery. We are beings of perception, and the quality of our perception is determined by our attitude. This is the importance of attitude. An individual who has the openness, honesty, and subtlety to perceive the nuances of their attitude in each moment, and the concentration necessary to make corrections as necessary is truly an unlimited person. For it is our attitude which determines the reality we live in and the opportunities and experiences we are available to.
Following your bliss is not about seeking extremes of joy and happiness. It is about following your heart and doing what is right for you. It’s about noticing what gives you energy, and doing that thing. It’s about noticing where your energy gets sucked away, and not doing that thing. For me, following your bliss is finding your own special path in life and then having the courage to walk that path. And while we may find guides along the way to offer advice and some direction, it is ultimately a solo-journey as we each discover our own unique way.
Do you feel like you reflect on things more than everyone else? Do you find yourself worrying about how other people feel? Do you prefer quieter, less chaotic environments? If the above sound true to you, you may be highly sensitive. The personality trait — which was first researched by Elaine N. Aron, Ph.D., in the early 1990s — is relatively common, with as many as one in five people possessing it. Aron, who has written multiple studies and books on high sensitivity, including The Highly Sensitive Person, also developed a self-test (which you can take here) to help you determine if you are highly sensitive. While recent interest in introversion — driven largely by high-profile publications on the subject, including Susan Cain’s book “Quiet,” — has brought more awareness to personality traits that value less stimulation and higher sensitivity, Aron notes that highly sensitive people still tend to be considered the “minority.” But “minority” doesn’t mean bad — in fact, being highly sensitive carries a multitude of positive characteristics. Read on for some of the commonalities shared by highly sensitive people.
I feel cheated. I feel like a fourth grade girl at a birthday party where all the other girls are whispering in the corner, playing mean games and trading juicy secrets at my expense. I feel like I’ve grown out of the slumber parties and games of spin the bottle, yet everyone is still out there playing whisper down the lane and refusing to let me in. Whether they were trying to protect us or were just too wrapped up in their own misery to warn us of our own, our parents didn’t do the best job of exposing us to the harsh realities of adult life and I feel like I’ve been left out of some pretty important secrets.
No matter where you live, there are plenty of things to do without spending money. From amazing places with breathtaking views, to sports and activities that can keep you entertained, to the joy of learning, building, and exploring new things, here’s a list of 31 meaningful things you can do instead of spending money.
Here’s some mantras of Divine intercession on a whole slew of topics. These reliably elicit magic, expansion, and possibility when done with a sincere heart or even partially open mind. These go far beyond affirmations; they truly invoke the highest divine potential. They bypass the conditioning and repetitive constraints of the ego. I recommend doing whichever ones you need for at least twenty-one days to help the mind recalibrate. Even if you are skeptical, why not try any of them as an experiment?
We’re all living creatures: things that lucked out and were blessed with life. The chances of the particles that make you up forming the person that you are today are so minute that it’s nearly a miracle that you exist. Mathematically speaking, you shouldn’t exist. You shouldn’t be alive. Yet, there will always be a lottery winner. And like most lottery winners, you are probably squandering away your winnings. You were given the most valuable thing on the planet, time – tax free mind you. And what exactly is it that you are doing with your winnings? We never worry about money until our funds start to run dry. Just the same, we never worry about our lives until we realize how quickly our time is running out. Unfortunately, by then, it’s usually too late. Wasting time is being unappreciative of how lucky you really are. Wasting time is not appreciating the phenomenon that is life. There are those, however, that do appreciate life. They tend to differ from those who don’t, greatly.
In life things always seem to go wrong when we start to interfere with the natural order of things. And when we do interfere and things start to get all messed up, our solution is to keep on interfering and try to forcibly change and fix things with our own will. Yet that rarely ever works because every time we interject in life we are always trying to solve a problem with the same level of awareness that created it, and as Einstein advised us, that does not work.
These 5 basic, Feng Shui-inspired, space-clearing techniques encourage buoyant energy to gather in the home, enhancing its energetic orderliness while sustaining our own happiness.
