We may think we know ourselves well but we have many hidden aspects that subconsciously drive our thoughts and behavior. They are known as "blind spots" but I call them BLIND OPENINGS. When we are willing and open to know ourselves better (or when we finally become tired of our old stories repeating themselves), blind spots become profound openings for us to grow and cultivate new possibilities...
Having an agenda causes us to be obsessed, usually subconsciously, with certain desired outcomes which then prevents us from living in harmony with ourselves. I reflect upon my past and see clearly how often my agendas have dictated my actions (and omissions) and how much I missed my glorious and abundant life because of them. Let's distinguish an agenda from a tamed, pure and authentic desire
From the deepest truth within you, what do you wish to transcend in your life in 2015? We all desire more for our lives. Let's respect that desire, as it IS a porthole for you to transcend something that is within you NOW. It is asking you to address it and illuminate it so that you transcend...
The desire you have specified is a beautiful expression of your Soul which, when you work with it by
Are you feeling moody lately? Are you wishing you felt better about your life, your work, your relationships or yourSELF? Might you be less patient, grateful, kind or compassionate than you would like to be?
A first step to consciously transcend your undesired mood is to bring nonjudgmental awareness to your current state, just as it is. Breathe in whatever it is you are feeling in this moment and breathe it out. Breathe it in and breathe it out. Really feel it and refrain from medicating it with food, drink, a person or an activity. Allow your whole being to actually experience the mood,
Are you feeling exhausted? In learning to honor ourselves, which you are doing by reading this blog :), a heightened awareness about sleep and energy levels is essential. WE ARE THE MASTERS OF OUR LIVES. It is possible to create a life that is vibrant and rested, where we are AWAKE enough to show up for ourselves at our best.
Contemplate these questions to help you transcend your ordinary consciousness:
"When somebody provokes your anger, the only reason you get angry is because you're holding on to how you think something is supposed to be. You are denying how it is. Then you see it's the expectations of your own mind that are creating your own hell. When you get frustrated because something isn't the way you thought it would be, examine the way you thought, not just the thing that frustrates you. You'll see
Our bodies are fragile and extraordinarily complex. Millions of parts function together to create your PRECIOUS body. When one part is not working in our favor, we tend to be angry, annoyed and aggravated. If we instead transfer those negative feelings to ones that are more positive, we are approaching pain and our relationships to our bodies in a new transcendent way. Let's consider treating our bodily pain like we would a fragile child who is hurting--with love, nurture and respect. So, the next time you have neck, back or any other pain,
We all have important responsibilities in our lives, so it can be helpful to ask yourself: how much of your week is spent doing activities and obligations that you really don't want to do? What would your weeks look like if you actually felt good inside and your week was filled with joy and purpose? You'd likely spend your time resting an appropriate number of hours based on YOUR needs, eating foods that nourish YOU, working in a field that gives YOU purpose, fulfillment and adequate compensation, spending time with people because you GENUINELY want to, taking time to exercise in a manner that YOU enjoy, and engaging in leisurely activities that make you smile. Ah... doesn't the idea of this lifestyle cause you to breathe more fully?
