How to Align Your Life With the Power of Focused Attention

How to Align Your Life With the Power of Focused Attention

When we make a conscious choice regarding what we think about rather than just letting our brain run rampant, a funny thing happens…you realize that you are not your thoughts! You are, rather, the observer behind them; the conscious listener per se. And you realize as well that this consciousness you are, is ever-present, and infinite and if you’re anything like me when this hit my heart, an unimaginable wave of peace will overcome you.

The Art of Turning Your Relationships Into Creationships

The Art of Turning Your Relationships Into Creationships

So, what’s the point of relationships? Are they really all only a, “you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours” deal? Well, yes…sometimes that’s exactly the sole purpose of a relationship. But all of them? Definitely not.

How To Use Painful Times From Your Past to Create a Happier Future

How To Use Painful Times From Your Past to Create a Happier Future

We all have times from our past that we’d rather forget. Whether they’re embarrassing, painful or things we done or said we now regret, I can say with confidence that all of us have things in our past that affect us deeply in our hearts and cause us to carry around some often painful memories each and every day, whether we are consciously aware of it or not. These memories show up in our lives manifested in the way we react to compliments or insults, as well as the opinions, judgments, flattery or grievances of others. Basically in how we’ve learned to respond to the world at large. And unless we “learn to learn” from our past experiences, they will continue to show up over and over in our lives as the same lesson, just through different experiences.

Why The Best Teachers Know They Are Ever-Expanding Students

Does practice ever really end? Are you the “best” until someone “beats” you? Or is this all mere perception? What does it truly mean to personally master an art or craft or skill? And does it really have anything to do with anyone else? Well, yes and no…

The (Half) Truth Movement and How it Affects You

The (Half) Truth Movement and How it Affects You

Believe it or not, the “spiritual” community is heavily weighed with so-called “gurus” who lead from ego rather than heart, and whom tend to have mastered the art of taking money from people with low self-esteem. While this isn’t the norm of course, there are many whom are profiting off people’s weaknesses and rather than helping people actually learn, grow and expand, they are monetizing these weakness to keep people living small.

How to Use Fear as a Tool for Success

How to Use Fear as a Tool for Success

If we let fear act as an emotion that halts our growth rather than to inspire more of it, then we will begin to see the ramifications of this in many if not all areas of our lives. We are not being punished or singled out or destined for a crappy life, we are simply being shown where WE need to show up in our own lives even MORE! Life acts to point out where we’re not giving and contributing, but this shows up as our lives appearing to have something missing or being incomplete. This is the curse of being human; always comparing ourselves to one another and looking at them as a guide of how well or not we are doing at life ourselves.

When Being Positive Can Have Negative Effects on Your Life

When Being Positive Can Have Negative Effects on Your Life

When we see happiness as something to be obtained, or a state that we’ll eventually reach once certain other things fall into place, we put ourselves in a place of constant distance from it. When we are always in a state of chasing happiness, we fail to realize that happiness is always right here in this moment, just waiting for us to simply tune into it.

Loved & Lost: Rising From the Fall

Loved & Lost: Rising From the Fall

The hidden gift of love itself is that you must be willing to be vulnerable, to be open and to have your heart broken in order to explore its deepest depths. When you surrender to your truth and fully expose yourself to another in that way, love will pour into that space in immeasurable ways.

The CCC Practice: “Creating Congruent Conditions” for Optimal Living

Being in tune with your intuition and knowing how to read and decipher the signals and signs it sends to you is vital to working with The CCC Practice, or “Creating Congruent Conditions” in your life that
will naturally draw in the experiences that desire. This falls over all categories of our lives from work to love to family and education, etc. In fact, living a truly congruent life actually means having all parts of your life existing wholly as they are; in balance and harmony being an extension of you via your own creative expression you bring to these various areas of your life.

Integrity: What It is and Why You Want to be Living in It

Integrity: What It is and Why You Want to be Living in It

When we are living “out of integrity”, this will show up in our lives as discord and disharmony. This is not punishment by any means, but rather an invitation to look at the areas in your life where you can show up MORE.

What Problem? How Denial Repeals Accountability & Growth

What Problem? How Denial Repeals Accountability & Growth

Growth comes from not avoiding issues or so much trying not to have them, but rather knowing how to handle them when they occur. If you can be open and honest with yourself and with others, you will most likely be an effective communicator and grow quickly from your experiences.

What to Expect From Your Everyday Expectations

What to Expect From Your Everyday Expectations

Expectations can be healthy when they come to holding yourself accountable for going after something you want. They can also be healthy when certain boundaries have been set among people and all parties lie in agreement. They can all expect of one another to honor the agreement. But what about when there is no agreement and we put expectations on people anyway? I truly believe that set expectations that are not talked about are the number one causes of misunderstandings in all relationships.

So Happy It Hurts: Why The Greatest Growth Is Often So Painful

So Happy It Hurts: Why The Greatest Growth Is Often So Painful

I’ve come to learn that life really is a matter of personal perspective. You can live 90 years with each day incredible and purpose-driven; full of creative ambition. Or you can live the same day over and over for 90 years. It’s really up to you, no matter where you come from, who your parents were, what gender or race you are, or nationality you are born under. Yes, these factors have their own undeniable struggles, but those too are calling to be looked in an entirely new way. When one sees “short-comings” not as obstacles, but as catalysts for motivation, the world opens up with new possibilities.

How to Maintain Momentum After a Huge Breakthrough

How to Maintain Momentum After a Huge Breakthrough

Sometimes we get so caught up in the initial high of the “revelation” or insight that somewhere along the line we soon find ourselves again into bad habits, perhaps back to self-sabotaging, bringing doubt and fear back into the picture and letting our ego run the show. I know better than anyone that this is such an easy thing to fall back into and it’s beyond frustrating when you catch yourself doing nothing but distracting yourself from the real work you need to be doing to move you towards completing your goals.

Draw That Line: Why it is So Important to Set Personal Boundaries

Draw That Line: Why it is So Important to Set Personal Boundaries

Unfortunately, we all have those relationships that we fear if we are honest with the person we will hurt their feelings or damage the relationship, but by not being honest we are allowing the person to inadvertently cause us pain and believe me, if they love you and knew they were doing so, they would want this to stop immediately.
