Discover What Playful Energy Is and How it Can Change Your Life

Discover What Playful Energy Is - Polly Wirum

Have you found yourself rolling through life expecting the same thing day after day? Maybe you have forgotten how to anticipate and allow new opportunities in your world. Keep reading and discover what playful energy is and how it can change your life.

One of my favorite tools for quick inspiration is getting outside, preferably on a hiking trail. I do this because I love the sense of freedom, and expansion of playful energy. It clears my mind and brings me joy.

This morning was no exception. I left my house at sunrise, with my four-legged trail companion. As we climbed up into the valley, we could see hot air balloons in the distance. A couple minutes later, a coyote with a stunning coat of reds, browns and white colors, met us on the trail. He paused, and looked at us before he dropped off into a ravine.

What Are Your Wildest Dreams?

20220117-140357maria1.18 Maria Shriver’s Sunday Paper: What Are Your Wildest Dreams?
“Freedom is never really won, you earn it and win it in every generation.”
—Coretta Scott King


I've Been Thinking...

I woke up Friday and went about my usual morning routine. My house is quiet in the early hours, which means I can hear every creak and crack as I make my coffee. 

“It’s going to be a good day,” I whispered to myself. “My essay is done. My schedule isn’t packed. I’m looking forward to my morning meditation and the day ahead.”

Then about 30 minutes later, just after this feeling of ease had set in, I picked up my phone. My eyes scanned my morning email newsletter from The New York Times and fell on the headline of David Brooks’ latest column: “America Is Falling Apart at the Seams.”

Life Doesn't Accept Ultimatums

Temple Hayes - Life Doesn't Accept Ultimatums
Everything in your life has prepared you for where you are right now. You are where you are supposed to be and when your dream is ready it will appear to you.

The amazing aspect about letting go is that it is powerful. Have you ever let something go and it came back to you in a greater way than what you ever imagined?

Everything Is A Miracle: 3 TECHNIQUES TO CREATE INNER PEACE

20220111-144108tamaK1.12.22

“You can live as though nothing is a miracle. Or as if everything is a miracle.”  – Albert Einstein



What does it mean to live as if everything is a miracle?  It means to dare to experience how loved you are. It means take a damn chance. Find your language. Chase goosebumps, visions, mala beads or hawk feathers upon the trail.  It means to dive into your own intimate relationship with the Presence, the tenderness in between the broken moments, the nudges, the coincidences, and uncanny, joyous juxtapositions.

Who Are You Right Now?

mariaShriver1.11.22
"Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom."  
Aristotle

I've Been Thinking...

“At this moment we must decide what kind of nation we are going to be,” said President Biden in his speech on the first anniversary of the January 6 insurrection. “Are we going to be a nation that lives not by the light of the truth but in the shadow of lies? We cannot allow ourselves to be that kind of nation.”

Bam.

Decisions can be hard to make. Yes, some are easier than others. But making the decisions that will change your life? Well, that can be pretty difficult. You have to be brave to make hard choices. You have to be willing to push through the discomfort. You have got to stand in your truth and be willing to see it through.

How to Make a Difference in Each Moment

guy1.7

In a thousand different ways, we are meant every day to begin to realize that it’s so easy to just run on automatic. Everything just goes on, doesn’t it? It just goes on. Sometimes it’s good. Sometimes it’s bad. But it just goes on. We are meant to understand that as long as we live from a life that just goes on, no difference is taking place in our life or in the world we’re in. We’re just part of a great machine, churning itself over and over again. Repetition, reincarnation, recurrence is all that’s happening.

It’s the clarity of this understanding that produces the need and the willingness an individual must have to make a difference. And it can be in the smallest way – as when you’re polite to somebody at the cost of yourself, meaning that you catch the impolite person in yourself and don’t give it a voice. To make a difference means that you are being different in the moment so that nobody knows what you’re doing, what you had to give up. That’s the beauty of it. Those you have interacted with won’t even know anything happened. They won’t know that you suffered yourself and allowed something new to happen.

Make This New Year Your Best Soul-Filled Year!

jholland1.4.22

Now is a time when we reflect on the year gone by … the happiest times as well as the challenges and losses. What have we learned about ourselves this past year? What do we want more of? How can we serve? What we need to change? And most importantly — What can we do to make the most out of 2022 and make it our best year yet?

It’s not about how many pounds you can lose or how many resolutions you can jot down that are too unrealistic to ever achieve. I personally believe – it’s really a time to make the dedicated commitment to look and listen within and tap into your soul and let it guide you to your most fulfilling life.

Yes, you can do this! Why worry about the days ahead when your soul is already there making sure that every step you take is for your highest good? Appreciate all that has happened to you in 2021, whether positive or negative.

The difficult challenges that we have in our lives are usually the biggest spiritual change agents for us. As long as we learn from every situation and lesson that we have been through, we then become better people and… so much wiser.

Set the intention to live in the present, send out a loving thought to your loved ones, friends, your animals, to those in need, and to Mother Earth. Enjoy every moment, have gratitude for all your blessings and celebrate!

As I’ve been teaching throughout this year, you can manifest anything you desire when you tap into the power of your soul. That’s where you’ll find everything you’re looking for: peace, comfort, hope, guidance, community and love. All you have to do is open your heart and welcome it in!

Here are 5 ways you can rest assured that this New Year will be your Best Year:

How to Manifest Your Best Life with The Energy of 2022

pollyw12.26

One of my favorite times of the year is headed our way and impossible to miss. We are about to experience a pause that highlights a line drawn in the cosmic landscape of time. It is the ending of 2021 and the beginning of 2022. Keep reading and discover how you can manifest your best life with the powerful energy of the collective spiritual evolution found in 2022.

Key Components of 2022 Energy

The simplest way to understand the overarching energy of 2022, is to imagine a sacred vessel holding the catalyst for karmic healing, self-love and personal empowerment.

2022 is designed in a way that makes it almost impossible to move laterally in life. The upward expansion is limitless, the lateral moves are restricted. It is also difficult to travel in a downward spiral, in other words don’t worry about losing ground in your spiritual evolution.

Resolve To Live Mindfully in 2022

juliepot12.24

The soothing S.N.A.P. method can help you meet whatever challenges the New Year brings with mindful self-compassion


According to one recent poll, more than half of people surveyed say one of their New Years resolutions will be to take more vacation time in 2022 than they did in 2021. That’s a wonderful idea to recharge, refresh and get more happiness and joy out of life.

There’s something else we can do to help us be more resilient in 2022 — even when the crap hits the fan. I’m talking about practicing mindfulness and mindful self-compassion.

Research shows that practicing mindfulness in everyday life can help us feel less distracted, reduce anxiety, improve memory and concentration and better manage crises like dealing with the pandemic. Mindful self-compassion can even give us a leg up when it comes to keeping New Year’s resolutions!

Studies show that people that are compassionate toward themselves are more likely to try again when they fail to achieve a goal. They don’t see failure as a blow to their self-concept. They recognize that everyone fails, and see failure is a growth opportunity.

Want to be more mindful and compassionate with yourself? Try the S.N.A.P. method:

Do You Feel Seen and Heard?

mariaS12.21 The Sunday Paper
"The song is ended, but the melody lingers on."
—Irving Berlin

For many of us, the holidays are a complicated time. So many emotions come up. So many memories flood our brains. It almost requires a daily practice to keep them all in check and from bubbling over.

I’ve found that this time of year requires a delicate dance. You may be feeling festive, joyful, or celebratory one moment, and then all of a sudden feel flooded with emotions from holidays of the past. You may find yourself missing people who are no longer part of your life, longing for traditions you no longer have, or struggling to implement new traditions. You may find yourself caught up in the madness and then find yourself trying to do your part to do less and keep it simple.

I find myself really cognizant of people’s swirling emotions at this time of year. Some fear that they can’t give what others are giving, others are anxious about not being able to keep up or keep it all together. I’m also mindful of my own emotions. One moment I’m decorating the tree with my granddaughter, laughing and dancing to Christmas songs, and the next moment I’m overwhelmed by memories of my kids when they were little and tears fill my eyes.

If Not Us, Then Who?

mariaS12.14 Maria Shriver's Sunday Paper
"Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth."
—Henry David Thoreau

I've Been Thinking...

Who knew what, and when?

That’s the question swirling around Capitol Hill in regards to the January 6 insurrection. In a court of law on Thursday, former President Trump lost again trying to claim presidential privilege when it came to his actions on that fateful day. The judge ruled that, as it turns out, it actually is in the public interest to know who knew what, and when.

That’s good for all of us. It’s good for our country to know who is trying to undermine it, as well as who is trying to protect it. On Monday, the January 6 committee will decide whether or not to hold former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows in contempt. I hope they do. He is in contempt, and he should be called out for exactly that.

The anniversary of January 6 is less than one month away, and what an anniversary it will be if we actually wake up to what that day was and is all about. It’s about who we are. It’s about our elections. It’s about our democracy. It’s about what we cherish, what people have fought for and given their lives for. It’s also ultimately about who we want to be moving forward.

Listening To The Messages of Your Intuition or Sixth Sense

annV12.13

If you meet someone new and suddenly feel that they are not trustworthy or mean well towards others. This would be an example of your sixth sense giving you information regarding them before any other senses can pick up on it.  

Other examples are if you suddenly become aware of the danger around yourself without knowing where it's coming from. when there's a feeling in the pit of your stomach, or maybe it's just an overwhelming thought about someone who has been on your mind lately. 

These feelings can come from different sources, but they all have in common that they should always be taken into consideration. Another type of message your intuition may send you is through dreams and premonitions; this can happen while sleeping or even during the day when you're wide awake. Your gut will tell you if these things are essential, so don't ignore them. They all mean something for a reason, whether it be good or bad news.

Defining What Wealth Is

PDblog12.10

In today’s world, it’s important to have an understanding of what wealth is. So picture this: You lose everything you have. Some of you might be on the verge of it and some of you are a long way away from it. Wherever you are right now, just imagine that you lose everything that you have. 

In the event you lose everything you have, would you still be OK? If the answer is NO, then you are not wealthy. If the answer is yes, then you are wealthy. 

As you evolve, you realize that wealth has nothing to do with money. Wealth has to do with your contribution, the love that you’ve shared, and the lives that you’ve touched. A person who has dedicated their entire lives to helping other people and loving other people will always have a place to sleep and somebody will always feed them at least one meal a day. This is wealth.

How To Get Inspired And Beckon Your Extraordinary Life

TamaK12.8

Believe me, I know about inspired space. I work in this realm with others.

I’ve been leading retreats in nurturing, scenic places for years. I am the one who encourages others to let go and trust the process. Participants arrive tired, excited, and some slightly frightened with faces white as goat cheese. I sometimes wonder if they think I am going to make them call their bosses, quit their jobs, and run away with me to follow their bliss—or maybe join a new age circus. Some may be secretly hoping I will.

Naturally the bright-eyed overachievers want to get their money’s worth. They are hoping that in the opening circle I can start giving them exercises to figure out their lives now, before they unpack their luggage. I feel the need pulsing within them to attack the problem at hand. I tell them we are going to spend the weekend relaxing, undoing conditioning, and receiving what is already within. I am setting them up to be guided. Because this is how to get inspired.

Being a Conscious Conductor of Your life

PDblog12.3

Just imagine that you are a conductor of an orchestra and every instrument is playing the exact composition that you’ve asked to be played based on where you are in your energy, and in your consciousness. 

For example, when you are a beginner, or novice conductor, you’re not going to have the complete grasp of the tonality, over the rhythms, over the melodies, the composition, as you would once you are an expert conductor. 

Life is about getting the highest, most vibrant energy filled composition out of everyone in your reality. We do this by realizing that every single person in our lives is showing us what we have to feel inside of us in order to go to the next place in our own being. For example, work is showing you where you are still anxious. Relationships, as well as ex-husbands and ex-wives, are showing you where you are living in victim consciousness. Children are showing you where you feel guilty or ashamed. Your life is showing you who you are internally.

Positive Self Talk Affirmations and How They Can Make You Money

juliem12.1

Positive self-talk affirmations are one of my secret weapons in building wealth.

I talk a lot about dealing with what I call, “crabs in your bucket”.

These “crabs” are negative words, actions, and vibe-killing thought processes from other people that cause serious damage to our self-image, dreams, and big goals.

These energies get their claws into the deepest parts of your psyche, tearing you down jab by jab, reversing any progress you’ve made, and knocking you back down to where you don’t want to be.

The truth is, though, sometimes we are our own worst crabs. And I think this has a big part in how we speak to ourselves.

Our self-talk is truly the gateway to what our future could hold. I believe, and know, that we speak things into existence.

For example, if we tell ourselves that today will be a bad day, then we more than likely will experience a bad day.

If we say to ourselves that we can’t do something, then we’ll never attempt to do it.

So, how are you talking to yourself? About your job? About your finances?

If you’re speaking negatively to yourself and into the universe, you can expect negativity in return.

To cultivate lasting wealth—both inner and outer—we have to start talking positively to ourselves.

How do you do that?

I like to start with positive self-talk affirmations.

In today’s post, I want to talk about what affirmations are and how I’ve used them to attract money into

my life.

How To Write Your Memories In Air

deepak11.29 Deepak Chopra, M.D., Brian J. Fertig, M.D. and Jack A. Tuszynski, Ph.D., D.Sc.

Memories are cherished or feared, depending on whether they are good or bad memories, so it makes sense to have as many happy experiences as possible. We can call this sound psychological advice, but spirituality is different. From the ancient Indian tradition comes a saying: “First experiences are written in stone, then in sand, then in water, and finally in air.”

In this one sentence the path of enlightenment has been encapsulated, once you unravel what the sentence means. It concerns the ability of experiences to stick with us as memories. If a memory is so strong that it makes a deep, even lifelong impression, it is like words engraved in stone. To find freedom, to live in the present moment, you can’t be bound up in the past, which is what strong, sticky, stubborn memories do. Therefore, the spiritual path isn’t about getting as many positive memories as you can. It’s about whether your memories are holding you back, overshadowing the present with ghosts from the past.

The past is a mental illusion created by memories. The present moment is free from the past, and as we live in the moment more and more, our memories loosen their grip. As the Indian axiom says, they are no longer engraved in stone but are like writing in sand, then water, and finally air. If this sequence sounds mysterious, that’s chiefly because modern Western science hasn’t solved the mystery of memory in the first place.
