Your Evolutionary Role and Purpose

PDblog7.9

Every single one of you has had a past life or multiple past lives centered around ascension and evolution. We access all of the potential that we have connected with through every incarnation, every prior incarnation. That's why you're good at certain things. That's why you are gifted in the way that you are. And, it's why when you learn things like healing modalities, or you take classes on mediumship, or you begin to dive into the esoteric world, you excel at it. 

It's not an accident that you excel at it. Some of you are even better than your teachers because you are a natural at it because it's who you've been before. So at some point, you have to understand that who and what you are is an oracle. And an oracle is an individual that brings light energy and information into this reality.

Bouncing Back from Disappointment

disapointment

Disappointment. We’ve all been there.

Whether it was the promising new relationship, the job interview that seemed so right, the passion project that didn’t pan out, we have all known the disappointment of not having our big dream met.

Even though the feelings of loss and sadness that come with disappointment totally suck, there are actions you can take to move you back into possibility.

When this happens to me, I give myself permission to spend a few minutes to experience my sad and blue feelings. Then I will journal these feelings and really exaggerate just how bad I feel. I let my imagination run wild on the negative side just to purge it all.

Next, I take a few moments to close my eyes, drop into my heart and remind myself of all the goodness in my life as I practice breathing deeply in and out through my heart.

Finally, I get my journal out again and this time I write myself five true and positive statements about my life.

Gaining a New Perspective

perspective

My transformational awareness journey began at age twenty when I broke my neck in gymnastics, was paralyzed and told I wasn’t going to recover. Completely recovering from my accident caused me to look at my life from a whole new perspective. Writing my book “Broken To Brilliant” allowed me to connect the dots (experiences) to develop a new perspective on why my life unfolded the way it did. More importantly, it exposed the truth of what really happened, versus the stories I told myself to make sense of my life. The things our minds make up to make us feel safe. All of our experiences and life stories have shaped us. How we interpret and give meaning to those stories forms the beliefs of who we think we are and what we’re capable of. Having an awareness of our stories is the first step in creating change in our lives.

Often, we believe that things in life, like this horrendous accident of mine, happen to us. I now believe life happens for us.

If you could gain a new awareness, a new perspective of your experiences and begin to uncover the potential gift in each one of them, how would your life be different? Having a new perspective could give you a whole new outlook on your life and a better understanding that ‘everything happens for a reason’.

Mark Nepo's Weekly Reflection: For Tu Fu

Mark-Nepo-July7
It was the spirit of Tu Fu from

the Tang Dynasty who gave me

strength to endure my cancer.

Now, years later, he appears again,

in a book of translations by a ninety-

nine-year-old. This time lamenting

how the autumn storms tore thatches

from his roof and how he woke to see

patches of straw fly into the river. In

the morning, he could see parts of his

roof tangled in the trees. If not for the

cold, he would have preferred sleeping

under the sky. On the page above his

poem is a print by Han Gan of sixteen

horses in various poses. If I could, I’d

tie a poem to the saddle of each and

send them back to the great one who

didn’t know he was great. I’d send

a long bow that could scarf its way

through history to let him know

that the red shock of his heart

still lives on.

3 Stages to Effectively Communicate with Confidence

confident

Confidence: Quite simply, it means Freedom from Doubt, A Belief in Yourself and Your Innate Abilities. What I like to call ‘your Genius’.


Now, I think many people believe that confidence is…

  • Elusive

  • Genetic (you had to be born with it)

  • Only available to those that are attractive or fit

  • An attitude that is gifted to you

  • Something your parents were supposed to teach you

  • What you feel only when everything is right and perfect in your life

  • Based on where you live or went to school or what degree you hold

  • Only for the wealthy

I’m going to challenge all those beliefs because I say confidence comes from knowing who you are and what you are here to share. Knowing what you do well that brings benefit to yourself and others. It could also include clarity around the message you are sending out to the world.

When you know how to communicate what you want, what you care about, what your innate gifts are and what you have to offer, then there is no doubt. To spin that in a positive way, there is CONFIDENCE.

Why Perfectionism Kills Creativity?!

Perfectionism

To experience true creativity is to be lost in a flow state. It can feel as if a stream of ideas and messages moves through us – we just have to get out of the way and allow this magical process to happen. 

Creativity by nature has a very fluid structure, which is why perfectionism can be the ultimate killer of creativity. Perfectionism is focused only on the end game. It has a strict idea of what we plan to create and it doesn’t allow space for something unique and surprising to emerge. 

If the thing you create is not exact, if it goes outside the lines, then you deny it. Inherent in the word perfectionism is a denial of the perfection of everything as it is. It denies the opportunity for something to create its own form. 

Getting to the root of your perfectionism

If you’re starting to explore how to overcome perfectionism, you have to start by getting to the root. What’s causing this tendency and desire in the first place? 

Typically, perfectionism is rooted in our strident need for certainty. In the desired end result of approval. Often, this desire for approval from others comes from a deep wound. 

If this pressure to be approved of by another person is deeply ingrained in us, it can start to feel as though we personally will not be whole if we don’t get the approval from someone outside of ourselves. So, we learn to deny approval from ourselves to ourselves unless we reach some perfection that seems to be always out of reach.

Embrace the Challenging Conditions that Change You

embracing_condition

Do you feel like you can’t embrace anything these days? You go to the store and encounter a scowling face. You hear some bad news, or you get a call, and you have a terrible reaction. You don’t want to embrace it. You want to erase it! How many of you wish you had a giant eraser? And isn’t that what we’ve been trying to do most of our lives when things go wrong?

Wouldn’t it be nice to live from something that, at any moment, never feels like whatever it’s looking at is too much for it to embrace?

How To Make Peace In Your Life

peace

The balance of peace in the world can seem overwhelming, as if huge forces outside our control are in charge. But you can take a different perspective, setting yourself the goal of creating peace all around you. The source of violence, war, discontent, rebellion, and unrest lies inside each of us. When you become a unit of peace consciousness, exemplifying the quality known as Ahimsa (harmlessness) in Yoga, you have added in a unique way to bringing the world to a state of peace.

In the coming week, you can develop your peace consciousness by focusing on a different habit every day.

At Times Like These---Do Not Get Discouraged

stayingpostitive

It’s time.  Please stop hiding your love under a bushel or a credit card statement. Do not apologize for believing in greater things—for yourself and for the state of our planet. It’s time to stop treating your quest for self-realization like a crumb of lint on your jacket, brushing your truth away.  I am asking you to stop listening to the noise of the media or your relatives. What does your heart whisper? What does this uncanny prophet know?

Here’s what I know: You’ve been chosen, marked, assigned. We all have. We are here to discover our light, a capacity within us that turns every “problem” into a portal of freedom.

Mindful and Spiritual Travel Are More Essential Now Than Ever

peaceful-woman-meditating-in-machu-picchu

Visiting sacred sites, studying sacred mythology, meeting new people abroad, and learning from spiritual teachers are all factors driving people into spiritual travel.

You see, ever since stay-at-home orders went into place due to COVID-19, people have been waking up to their need for more meaningful connections and experiences.

Even Deepak Chopra predicts the future of wellness travel after COVID. His verdict?

Chopra says people are looking for a reconnection to existence. From exploring nature to seeking wellness travel, people yearn to form meaningful social connections as well as connections to why they’re alive.

Chopra even predicts people will begin seeking out spiritual sites more and more. 

What is spiritual travel exactly?

What To Do When You Feel Lost

lost

We all have moments when we feel lost and unsure of what is going on, where we are going or what to do next.

What if in your greatest darkness when you felt lost, you were actually much closer to where you needed to be?

It’s scary to sit in the unknown. It’s often easier to go back to the familiar comforts of your old life. But this only leads to more of the same.

It’s easy to stay stuck in fear, and lose faith in such moments of feeling lost. But to act from fear only creates more drama and things to be afraid of.

Rather than act from fear and desperation, simply ….

Be still.

When you don’t know what to do…

Is It Possible to Choose Happiness?

choose_happiness What You Need to Know to Be Happy According to These 5 Spiritual Principles

Every one of us wants to be happy, and not just for brief, fleeting moments but deeply happy throughout the course of our entire life.

But sometimes, when faced with certain circumstances, situations or conditions, it can be difficult to feel happy!

I’m often asked if it’s true that we can choose to be happy, and if it’s possible to maintain a state of true happiness for longer than a few moments at a time.

Well, spiritual leaders have been asked these questions for centuries.

The following are five spiritual truths about happiness for you to contemplate and begin applying to your life so that you can experience greater happiness and fulfillment long term.

Yes, you have the ability to choose happiness, no matter your circumstance, situation or condition

choose-happiness-buddha-quote

“Happiness does not depend on what you have or who you are. It solely relies on what you think.”

–Buddha

One of the biggest “secrets” to creating a happier and more fulfilling life is knowing that happiness is always a choice.

In other words, you can’t always control what happens to you in life, but you do always have the power to choose how you’re going to react to what’s happening in the world around you.

Does this mean you have to feel good about everything and everyone at all times?

Stop Taking the Rejection of Others Personally

pdblog7.2

Life is in constant motion, but not everything in your life is at the same rate of motion. 

An example is like riding in a car. You’re driving down a road, but everything that you’re driving past is moving past you. Why? Because you’re at a different rate of motion than everything that’s walking on the street or riding a bike. Your trajectory is at a different rate of motion than everything and everyone else in your life. Every now and again, you’ll bump into someone who’s at the same rate of motion. And those are the people that are sticky. They stick in your life, a product of momentum and energy. If someone is on an evolutionary journey and they’re committed to the evolutionary journey, more than likely, they’ll be able to hang with you.

Be the Creator of Your Own Happiness

happy-jump
In every human being is a limitless reservoir of power which can overcome anything in the world. Tapping into this is the true essence of the human experience. 

CLEAR REALIZATION
The day you realize that you can overcome any weakness, you are the winner. You should accept that your subconscious can solve all your problems,  heal your body, and prosper you in every way. 

LEARN TO TRUST
Trusting the power and wisdom of your subconscious mind is essential. By living in this fashion you are creating a superstructure for happiness. Since happiness is the ultimate and only goal of the individual, focusing on it completely is extremely imperative. 

CHOOSE HAPPINESS
When you wake up in the morning,  it is essential for you to repeat to yourself "Divine order takes charge of life and things are working for your good, Divine Love enfolds me and I move forward in peace"

Mark Nepo's Weekly Reflection: The Work of Care

mark nepo 6.30
I’m not sure I can help
but my heart wants to try.

Oh, I can shop for you or
bring you dinner.

I can even help you up
should you fall.

But when the hunger is
inside, when the break is
where no one can see,

then all we can do is be
a greenhouse for each other.

Your Mindset Creates Your Reality

mindset
If you’ve read my book or any of my blogs, you know that I passionately believe in, and encourage you to harness the power of your money mindset. It is true that what you put out to the Universe is returned to you.

I’m overcome with joy when I see someone else experience these abundant moments and share them with the world, thereby planting more seeds of empowering shift.

I was inspired when I read this post by Jenn Dieas, Founder and President of “Glowout – A Golden Girl Salon”. She truly manifests the power of this message.

You may have your fearful moment, lament about your struggle. But once you focus back on your strength and let the world know you’re ready to embrace it, things change.

See how Jenn pulled herself from fear to power, and the financial win she experienced from creating that shift for herself. Read on, and unleash your inner Glow Getter!

You are a Difference Maker: The World Needs You

butterfly-in-water-picture-id157315385
You are a Difference Maker. You dare. You dream. You DO. You are unique in a world where people too often stop at dreaming or never dare to dream at all.

Difference Makers are alive with passion. We see dreams as visions — a sacred spiral, a chrysalis, a circular path to growing. It’s the metamorphosis of soul, an evolutionary process in the cycle of becoming who we are meant to be. The more our dreams align with nature and the natural flow of life, the more authentic we become. It’s how we transform ourselves and discover our true purpose.

This is the butterfly effect. Something as small as the flutter of one butterfly’s wing can ultimately cause a tsunami of good around the world.

5 Ways to Help You Choose What You Really Want

trekking-with-the-dog-on-mountains-picture-id940258986

It’s a little-known secret that our experience of life in any given moment is a direct reflection of what we actually value in that same moment. We may deny this unsettling truth, but when it comes to what we are in relationship with, inwardly and outwardly, actions speak louder than words—and, seen or not, all actions are a choice of one kind or another.

Nothing in the universe can make us choose to act against ourselves, as in when we consort with self-compromising negative states. Living in sorrow, with anger, or awash in regrets is a consensual affair. These dark states never dance alone; they must have a partner to produce their pain, which brings us to this good news: we are released from the dark embrace of any unhappy thought or feeling in the same moment we see that we’ve been tricked into dancing that troubled tango.

Use the following five insights to help you choose higher self-awareness as your new partner in life, and watch how effortless it becomes to start giving yourself what you really want.
