The Power of Self-Awareness

The Power of Self-Awareness

Self-awareness is a major key to successfully creating what you want in your life and thus feeling fulfilled in your efforts. Without self-awareness, you are literally blind as to why things may not be working out in the way you had hoped. But with it, you can grow your experience of confidence and personal power in ways you never imagined!

When things don’t work out the way that we want, we usually look outside of ourselves for the answer. This is definitely important, but if you leave out your own awareness of self in the matter, you may never feel certain about what you should do next.

The self  that you are today directly influences your decisions and choices in life. It influences your actions or lack thereof. It ultimately influences your results. If you remain unaware of what is going on with that self, you are likely to repeat the same mistakes over and over again. You are much more likely to become discouraged and want to give up.

Nurturing self-awareness is like shining a light in a dark room, so you can see again.

Why You Need Inner Peace

Why You Need Inner Peace

Inner peace is a deep human need, just like air, water, love, and sunshine. The trouble is that even though we want it, we live as though we can do without it because we can still survive physically even when we are in serious states of chronic stress.

But inner peace does not show up automatically, just like food on our plate will not show up unless we do something about it. So it’s important to think carefully about what we can do to create this much-needed experience for ourselves.

Firstly, let’s dispel some of the myths about inner peace, so we can focus on how to make peace a regular experience in our lives.

Don’t Let Others Steal Your Power

Don’t Let Others Steal Your Power

I would like to address two groups of people. And even if you do not consider yourself to be a part of these groups, there are still some great tips here for you, as well.

The first group consists of those who are angry and upset about politics and social matters, no matter which side you are on. The second group consists of the group of young people and college students who are highly reactive and looking for safe spaces to avoid feeling “triggered”.

What do both of these groups have in common? Extreme levels of feeling reactive to the outside world. I do not need to address the things you are reacting to. You already know about that. What I want to address is how being extremely reactive affects you personally in a negative way, and how you can deal with the things that bother you in a much more empowered way.

To Feel Beautiful, You Must be Connected to Nature

To Feel Beautiful, You Must be Connected to Nature

Technology has in many ways convinced us that we don’t really need nature, except on special occasions. But what have we lost as individuals by inadvertently believing this? If nature is last on the list of our individual priorities in life, then we are on a path of diminishing the pure essence that makes us special as human beings.

You see, we are completely, wholly, and totally a part of the natural world. We are an integral part of a massive ecosystem of life, that includes stars, planets, galaxies, and beyond. How strange it is that we find it acceptable to erase the beauty of nature from our personal lives.

I’m sure that you are already well aware of the beauty of the outside world of nature, such as what can be found in the kingdoms of mountains, lakes, forests, oceans, and the beautiful sky overhead.

But what about the beauty of you in your natural state? And what happens if you choose to disregard that beauty?

Be a Lightworker!

Be a Lightworker!

The world needs Light and stability right now. We can sit back and wait for this to happen all by itself, or we can play a conscious role in contributing positive energy into our collective situation.

It’s a common human habit to always assume that someone else (even God) will ultimately take care of things. But this denies the very real fact that we human beings have a specific purpose in this Universe. We are creators, sourced in Love, whose purpose it is to create out of that very same love.

We are currently witnessing a grave downward spiral in our world, where division, hate, and fear are being fomented on a near 24 hour basis. At first glance, it can appear that the wisest thing to do is to pick a side and then battle it out to see who “wins”. But, of course, no one wins in this scenario. A toxic climate such as this benefits no one.

It is time for Lightworkers to come out of the closet, and accept the power of who we really are to effect positive change and transformation.

A Simple Way to Understand Life!

A Simple Way to Understand Life!

How much time do you spend trying to understand your life? Sometimes it seems like we are put here with a host of problems and no instructions about how to solve them. Wouldn’t it be great if a simple paradigm shift could clear your mind and show you the best way forward? The good news is that there is such a shift, and I’m going to show you exactly how to make that happen.

A paradigm refers to your view or perception of reality. It’s how you see the world. We tend to think that what we see is the way that it actually is. But what we see is actually just a product of what we believe. We usually see only that which reinforces our belief. Anything else is likely to be blocked out. So if we feel trapped by our outer circumstances, the reality is that the trap is mostly inside our minds.

Imagine this. Imagine that you are in a big, wide world filled with endless possibilities. You can literally do almost anything you want, by learning how to do it and then taking action. You are a creator, an infinite being living in a body, who can survey the world and make whatever creative choices you wish. This is what life looks like when you remember who you are.

How to Stay Happy, Peaceful, and Grounded through the Holidays

Christmas and the holiday season can be a time of great joy, great stress, or a combination of both. For many people it consists of a roller coaster of emotions and the upheaval of everyday routines. But the idea is that this is supposed to be a time of happiness and celebration, so let’s talk about how best to keep the experience entirely positive.

I’m going to focus on Christmas, but you can apply this to any holiday, no matter what you are celebrating. How can we truly enjoy ourselves and benefit from this magical time of year, with as little stress as possible?

I’m going to divide this into six possible situations, and then offer ideas and suggestions to improve each one of them. Of course, you are free to mix and match any of these suggestions, according to what works best for you.

Don’t Let Technology Diminish Your Humanity

Don’t Let Technology Diminish Your Humanity

Our humanity is a powerful thing. We are creative, spiritual beings whose highest essence is that of Light and Divine Love. We are essentially agents of the Heart. We are at our best when we love ourselves, each other, and all of life.

Technology, on the other hand, is cold and without feeling. It is a mimicker and an accelerator. By its own nature, it does not connect with our hearts and our spirituality. We are thus obliged to find a healthy balance in living with this alien force that is so intertwined in our lives.

I refer to our current fast-evolving technology as alien because it does not connect with nature or with our higher selves. It exists as an interloping foreigner that must be kept in perspective, and whose influence must be tamed in our everyday lives.

How to Banish Worry from Your Life

How to Banish Worry from Your Life

Worry isn’t fun, is it? Imagine how different your life would be if worry did not exist. Your thinking would be clear, decisions would be easier, and you would be much more productive. You would be relaxed and healthier. And you would certainly smile a lot more, with an enhanced ability to enjoy life!

Many of us believe that our worries would go away if only things outside of us would change for the better. Surely if our circumstances improved, or that certain family member would change his or her behavior, then we could stop worrying. Or maybe if world events changed for the better, then we could end our personal stream of anxiety.

The only problem with these ideas is that many of these circumstances are beyond our control. We may have some influence, but the final outcomes are likely due to a combination of other things as well.

The best way to deal with worry is to realize that you do not need it in order to solve your problems. In fact, worry is likely to stand in the way of your ability to find the very solutions you are looking for.

How Much Do You Love Yourself?

How Much Do You Love Yourself?

We hear a lot about loving other people, but many don’t realize that this starts with loving yourself. How you feel about yourself plays a very large role in your ability to love others. It also plays a huge role in your ability to function effectively as a creator in your life.

Let’s look at a simple analogy to understand this more clearly. If you buy a plant that you love, you will likely take very good care of it. Because you enjoy its presence, you will probably be inspired to do whatever it takes to enhance that presence. You will be attentive to its needs, water it, feed it, and make sure that it has exactly the right amount of light. You will also freely open your heart to appreciating it, which will inspire you to continue caring for it.

This is not very different from what you will do if you love yourself. Granted, loving yourself as a human being is far more complex than loving a plant. But the principle is the same.
