Forever Fixin’ to Fix: Why It’s OK to Be OK and How to Just Be OK With It

Forever Fixin’ to Fix: Why It’s OK to Be OK and How to Just Be OK With It

Many of us are not quite able to love the things we are trying to change about ourselves and I get that sounds rather odd and counter-intuitive. I mean, if we liked this part of ourselves, why would we want to change it, right?

Let it Be: The Whispering Words of Wisdom Getting Louder

Let it Be: The Whispering Words of Wisdom Getting Louder

It is when we hold tight to things in such fear of losing them that there is sometimes literally no room to breathe, and therefore no room for creative expression to emerge. So, in reality holding tightly often times is the very cause of something falling away from us. We never really “lose” anything. We simply experience lessons we choose to learn from (wins) or not (what we’d call losses), but the moment you accept and acknowledge the lesson, you have won.

Pruning the Tree of Expectation: How What We See Has Roots in What We’re Looking For

Pruning the Tree of Expectation: How What We See Has Roots in What We’re Looking For

The moment we incarnate we are bombarded with outside stimuli from the physical world that demand our attention and we rightly so give it to learn how to navigate this new environment to ensure our greatest chances for survival. However, it is rare that we are taught that this is not the only place to get your cues in life from. Sure, we often get the good old generic lessons passed down to us like, “always trust your gut” or “follow your heart”, but these cookie-cutter conversation pieces are rarely ever more deeply explored even though they carry some serious hidden gem insights. And this must lead us to wonder are they really understood and communicated from one generation to the next on what it really means to do either?

Easy ZZZ’s: How to Tune Out the Noise of the Day For Optimal Rest

Easy ZZZ’s: How to Tune Out the Noise of the Day For Optimal Rest

Meditation is an incredible way to calm the mind and clear away the noise of the day that we all tend to carry well into the late evening. With regular practice, the mind will naturally get into the rhythm of starting to calm down and meditation will get easier for you. It is not about having NO thoughts; it’s about letting those thoughts pass by like clouds in the sky and coming back to your calm center.

Magnetic Mirrors – Why Opposites Really Attract

Magnetic Mirrors – Why Opposites Really Attract

The longer I date someone who is just like me in so many damn ways, but in the ways that matter, my absolute complete and udder opposite, I also learn to embrace those dualistic parts within myself. I learn to recognize and discern between the judgments I surpass as things I am projecting and things that I genuinely am picking up on that he needs my help pointing out that he is simply not aware of.

Quantum, Chaos or Relativity: Which Persona-Reality Theory Are You?

Quantum, Chaos or Relativity: Which Persona-Reality Theory Are You?

According to Quantum Theory, if we simply rely on “common sense” to understand the nature of reality, we refuse ourselves the chance to see the whole picture; which takes a bit of being open to…well, a little bit of weirdness. It says that our rational minds simply cannot perceive the ultimate truth of reality and to even begin to understand, we need to expand, go deeper and think outside of the box.

How to Get Out of Your Own Way [VIDEO: Alan Watts]

How to Get Out of Your Own Way [VIDEO: Alan Watts]

It’s always a good idea plan for the future, absolutely. But life has proven to me time and time again that it strives in balance and will always return to such, as long as you don’t get in the way. And when we hold on or cling to life through the various ways we try desperately to control things, then we are literally planting ourselves right in the middle of the road, refusing to move and eventually life will create a current strong enough to get us up and going again.

When It’s All Done in Love – How We Justify the Lies We Live

When It’s All Done in Love – How We Justify the Lies We Live

If you’re anything like me you cherish the respect it shows a person has for you when they can trust you enough with dealing with reality as it is. They aren’t taking it upon themselves to give you an altered, watered-down version of it just to protect your feelings. Now, if you outwardly are the type that would rather be on a “need know” basis, then that’s different. Most people, however I believe would rather be informed and treated as if they have the conscious awareness and mental capacity to make sound choices with the truth of the situation at hand. And yes, I am definitely one of those people.

The Alchemy of Voice: How Living For Yourself Can Tune a Dying Dream

The Alchemy of Voice: How Living For Yourself Can Tune a Dying Dream

That voice is what I’m sure we’ve all heard called before our “inner child”. That raw, un-filtered part of us that so dearly just wants to be loved and accepted as they are. The one that doesn’t want to be told to shut up because they have strange ideas or don’t fit in. The one that perhaps keeps those ideas to themselves now in fear of rejection. The one who’s voice has grown quieter over the years due to the addition of other people’s core beliefs as well as societal conditioning.

A Paradox With Purpose: To Hang On, We Must Let Go

A Paradox With Purpose: To Hang On, We Must Let Go

It is so vital to learning about the Ego and its tricks and how to actually use it to benefit you. If left to its own devices the Ego will convince you that all you know is all you need to know and you must hang on with a Kung Fu grip or else! It does not want you growing, expanding, nor especially changing in a positive way because that means it is threatened. But if we can learn to shift the dynamic with our Egos and learn to work the paradox of having to let go of things to keep them stable and balanced in our life, then the Ego can do amazing things for us.

A Conscious Comparison of The Human Spirit & Soul

A Conscious Comparison of The Human Spirit & Soul

We’ve all heard at one time or another someone say that a person “has spirit” or that a song might be “soulful”, and what is apparent is that BOTH spirit and soul invoke emotion and are deeply embedded within us, so that when the creative force they invoke surfaces whether it be via painting, writing, singing, or mud wrestling (lol), each bring from our core that which makes us each human beings with a living purpose. They are intertwined and affecting one another as a whole, and yet maintaining their respected uniqueness and differences all the while.

Why You Are A Spiritual Being No Matter What

Why You Are A Spiritual Being No Matter What

While I understand that to “be” something, you must fit the criteria of what “being” that certain something actually means. But when it comes to Spirituality, who got to decide and why do we all just go along with it? I also get it that with increased self-awareness, intuition, centeredness, connection to Source, the Divine, God or whatever name you prefer to use there comes the draw towards certain activities, types of people and even thoughts, as well as the draw away from certain activities, types of people and again…thoughts. But when we start to invest our own perceptual opinions onto something greater than ourselves; something that is meant to encompass everything and be bias to none (see all in love and everything as connected), to me it seems to not only defeat the purpose, but chip away at what it such an incredibly and personally beautiful experience to each and every one of us.

New Year’s On, Old Fear’s Gone: How to Finally Stop Fear From Holding You Back

New Year’s On, Old Fear’s Gone: How to Finally Stop Fear From Holding You Back

Fear only has as much power over us as we allow it to. And all fears are dispelled in the same exact way, no matter what they are about and no matter how large or how small. All fears, dissipate when we face them. And that’s not to say that it actually goes away entirely, but when we face the fear it’s POWER over us ceases to exist and therefore the control it had over our lives is no longer.

New Year, New You: How to Turn Those Resolutions into Tangible Goals

New Year, New You: How to Turn Those Resolutions into Tangible Goals

When we can fully embrace what it feels like in all senses to be the person who has already achieved the goals we set out for ourselves, this is setting the frequencies to match up and pull the experience to you. Think “fake it until you make it”. There’s something in that when we own the energy of our desires; we ultimately do become them.

Forgiveness: The Universal Understanding We All Need to Take Up

Forgiveness: The Universal Understanding We All Need to Take Up

You see, as humans we all know we make mistakes. Some of us even take a few more times than others to learn our lessons, but the point is we ALL mess up at times, we all over-react, we all lay slave to our emotions, we all let untrue thoughts haunt us and take away our self-worth, and we all judge and judge one another, but what I’ve come to realize is the less I judge and the more I show forgiveness the more I am able to love myself.
