I love Eckhart Tolle. I remember reading his book, The Power of Now in 2010 and from that moment on, whenever I feel that my mind is drifting, making too much noise and keeping me from being fully present and engaged in the NOW, I immediately go back to reading his book. I have learned so many wonderful lessons from reading his inspiring books, watching his lectures, and today I would like to share 27 of these life changing lessons with you.
Many women think that the key to beauty lies in the bottom of their makeup bag. There are a million and one reasons why women believe this: they’re judged on their appearance, pop culture and mass media support those judgements, and big business makes its money off shamelessly promoting the before and after effects of their miraculous products. The truth is, being beautiful doesn’t come from a lipstick tube, mascara wand, or blush brush. The following seven factors create a more lasting impression than any amount of makeup ever could.
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.
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?
There is a new more expansive energy in the air – do you feel it? More importantly, would you like to know how to fully utilize this buoyant energy to get your life moving in a beneficial direction? In this article, I explain the background of where we sit energetically now and how you can purposefully and intentionally take advantage of our new, friendlier, and more expansive energies arriving this month. Right now in fact is an excellent time to get up to date with your own energies and reflect on intentions you made for your life early in 2014. If you are like most people around the world, there have been some bumpy times so far this year, especially in April-May-June when planetary energies stirred a plethora of chaos and uncertainty.
When you meet someone who is spiritually healthy, you’re immediately drawn to that person. You feel good just by being around them. These people are magnets for happiness, freedom and generosity, and have a unique ability to enjoy the present moment. The only way you can achieve true spiritual satisfaction is by following your heart’s desires. Here are some clues that you can use to stay on the right path. Here are 20 signs you’re spiritually healthy:
We’ve all had the experience of walking into the movies, and then walking out feeling like different people. Movies have the potential to inspire, and influence our decisions about life. And why wouldn’t they? We’re all familiar with the work of Woody Allen, James Cameron, and Quentin Tarantino. Three of the great many writers and directors who know how to emotionally impact an audience. Sometimes a movie could be our motivational bridge to the success we truly desire. And in this article, I’m sharing my personal list of 10 movies you need to watch to be more successful.
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.
Your friends and family will probably think you’re a few chakras short of an aura (after all, most grown adults don’t usually talk to imaginary friends) but opening your third eye and contacting your spirit guides is a lot of fun and it can improve your life in countless ways. Aside from the colourful characters you can meet and the mind-altering visions you can receive, there are plenty of reasons to make like a shaman and give this mysterious path of spiritual awakening a whirl. Here’s my top 10:
In this inspirational TEDx talk, Paola Gianturco takes us on a magical journey around the globe introducing us to the women who are making change in their communities and bringing light, hope and improvements. She calls these women: The women who light the dark!
When we find a job we feel passionate about, there are a lot of signs that we love it. But finding work we love does not always mean that it’s easy. And when the work begins to challenge us, or when we hit roadblocks (which everyone will) it’s not as easy to tell if we’re actually doing work we’re meant to do. Finding work you are truly passionate about can feel a lot like falling in love. You become infatuated, excited, and you can feel yourself changing for the better. But what happens when you get used to it? New is now familiar, and that loving feeling is not as “sparkly” as it once was. In some cases, when relationships last for this long (with a person or a career) it can be difficult to tell if you still want to be in it for the long run. Here are some signs that you’ve found the one.
Mistakes are inevitable. It’s basically written into our biology that we will make them. If you claim that you never make mistakes, it seems likely that you don’t do very much of anything. There is a reason mistakes are consistent happenings in all of our lives: They help us to identify our faults so we can establish who we want to become. The experiences that mistakes allow us to have are unattainable elsewhere.
Ask yourself, “What is the inspiration of this moment? What am I inspired to do now? What is the next wave of energy?” Pause and listen for a moment, but not with your ears. Listen like a radio antenna listens for a radio signal. When you catch the edge of the signal, tune into its frequency. Let it become stronger, louder, clearer, just as you might manually tune an analog radio dial.
