True Potential

What is holding you back from achieving your true potential? Do you have physical limitations that seem to restrict your energy, focus or stamina? If so, how could your living experience be a gift you could share with others? The same is true with your emotional or psychological battles. Instead of looking at aspects of your life as limitations, can you see them as lived experience that give you something very valuable to share with the world?
How you share these experiences may vary also. For some, writing is their ideal medium while others share through art of some type. Others are expert teachers or inspiring coaches. Whatever your gift is, now is a great time to begin to share it with a wider audience. Humanity needs your perspective and your voice of wisdom. Playing small and being fearful of putting yourself out there doesn’t serve you or the greater good of humanity. Why not see your limitations as strengths and be open hearted enough to share yourself with others? Making yourself vulnerable isn’t something to fear, it sets you free and becomes your superpower! We can all contribute to the consciousness of our planet in this age of awakening! Be Mindful… Pause… Connect!

Warning Signs

Do you scan your body and heed its warning signs? Or do you continue to push on until you get a huge wake-up call, in the form of an illness or injury? Most of us have been so indoctrinated with the work ethic that we have trouble relaxing and have lost the essential art of rejuvenation. Just as the body needs sleep at night to recuperate and repair itself, time away from stress and being on the job are essential to retain a sense of energy and purpose in what you are doing.
In fact, resting may just give you the perspective to begin to question what you are doing in your life and ensure that it is in alignment with your life purpose. When you take time to step away and truly evaluate what you are spending your life doing, it may become clear that you are not necessarily aligned with your highest purpose. The longer you remain in the busy mode, the more difficult it is to reflect and wake up to the trap you may have gotten sucked into. What is your body telling you? Is it asking for more rest and recovery time? Is it asking for more exercise or time in nature? When you learn to honour your body’s signals, you will be able to achieve a more consistently fulfilling life, filled with the joy of being on purpose in everything you do.

The Mindful Way

Change the Story

How do you make changes in your life? Let’s say you have just returned from an inspirational workshop and you have lots of great ideas. Should you try to implement them all at once? It is better to focus on one or maybe two things that you feel will have the greatest benefit. Then work out what you need to clear that is currently taking your time, in order to invest time into the new. Consciously saying no to certain habits can be very liberating, especially when you replace them with something that will be much more empowering.
Most importantly, you need to change the story around whatever you are trying to implement. For example, if it is financially related, you should catch any thoughts around doubt, fear or any sense of lack. When you notice such thoughts… be mindful… pause… connect and be grateful for what you have. Gratitude is one of the greatest energies that allows us to receive abundance from the universe. When our story supports our worthiness to receive, anything is possible! Changes can happen instantly and life can transform in the most miraculous ways. Keep practicing! Be Mindful… Pause… Connect!

Shift in Consciousness

How do you unify different views of the world? When you recognise that a shift in consciousness is happening on the planet, how do you interact with those who have no clue what is happening? Do you try to share your knowledge with them? Should you give them information and try to convince them you’re right? Save your breath! You can’t convince people of anything they choose not to believe. Nor can you help anyone unless they ask for help!

The key is to be authentic with everyone you meet and simply share love with them. Listening and empathy are the greatest leadership skills! Be the most amazing bearer of light and be willing to share your wisdom when you have a spiritual prompt to do so. But never in a forceful or judgmental way. Be an example of how awakened, loving human beings conduct themselves. Pause your mind and go within for the wisdom that will help them move beyond the collective fear into a space of understanding and joy. Be Mindful… Pause… Connect!

Making Choices

How do we make choices? Are major decisions in life planned out logically with lists of pros and cons, the cost and possible outcomes? Or do we take the opposite approach and simply go with the flow, trusting the universe to bring us opportunities and experiences that will shape and guide our life? Perhaps both approaches are valid and which one we use may depend on the nature of the choice.
What has served many people well is to listen to their body and what it tells them about a particular choice. Others simply follow their gut as to what feels right. What would happen if you used mindfulness and simply meditated? Trusting Source to guide you to the right decision? Opening your mind to new ideas by questioning old belief patterns can potentially reveal a new choice. The mindful practice of pausing your thoughts and connecting with Source can result in choices more wonderful than you could ever have imagined. Allowing the universe to guide you can result in miraculous choices that open up a whole new world of possibilities. Be Mindful… Pause… Connect!

Perspective

How do we truly change the world? Do we really have the power to help make a shift in the history of our planet? The beauty of life is that we have a choice in each moment, as to who we are and what our world looks like. No matter what corporate media says or what appears to be happening in the big picture of our tiny planet. We can choose to have an even bigger picture of ourselves, our planet and the entire universe. When we look from this perspective, we can live in a way that isn’t really affected by the news-making headlines of the day. When we see from the timeless perspective of eternity and the unlimited perspective of space, we can see how tiny and fleeting these happenings on Earth truly are. It enables us to savour each moment and be present with it, without being sucked into the drama of events being reported.
How do we balance these two perspectives? When we have a universal perspective, we can see everything as part of the grand plan, that we co-create under the direction of the creative forces of our Source Energy. When we trust in the benevolence of the universe, then our daily life becomes one of adventure and constant surprises, we are able to see the beauty in everyone and the positive value in every experience. When we are living in love and are aware of our higher purpose, we automatically become a role model to show others that it is possible to experience tremendous challenges without fear. We change the world by constantly choosing love over fear. In this way we change our world in every moment, and soon the entire world will reflect our shift in consciousness. Be Mindful… Pause… Connect! Mindful Love & Practice Always!

Challenge of Change

Heaps of things are in the process of change. Although it isn’t seen on corporate media, there are massive shifts happening in the world today. As important as these changes are, nothing is more important than what is happening within us. The shifts in energy that we are feeling, as we are moving into the light, is creating changes in all of us! We know that changes require challenges and struggle, so it’s important to view everything as happening for our highest good. The important thing is to remain hopeful and joyful when recognising the birth pangs of bringing forth a new world.
When we are mindful and grateful in the midst of seeming chaos, we provide incredible strength and inspiration to others. We feel our energy and vibration rising, as we strive to bring more light into the world by sharing our heart with others. This is a time for celebration and a sense of liberation from the darkness our world has experienced. Being immersed in the energy of love is the most effective way that we can assist in bringing forth the new world. Let’s continue throwing off the last vestiges of the fear based control structure we are all familiar with. As we face these ongoing challenges, the gratitude we express for being here at this time, will help make the shift one of smoothness, grace and joy. Be Mindful… Pause… Connect!

Are You Worthy?

How do you spoil yourself? Do you feel like you deserve to spoil yourself with pleasures or do you have an innate sense of unworthiness for everything you have achieved and received? Many of us were brought up with a feeling that we could never be good enough to gain the love we so desperately desired. We created such high expectations for ourselves that would make it almost impossible for us to feel satisfied that we were good enough. This feeling leads to a sense of always needing to prove ourselves and that no matter how hard we try, it is never enough.
What would happen if we adopted the belief that we are children of God and we are innately lovable just as we are? We are deserving of all the abundance of the universe, and it is ours for the asking. What if the purpose we choose is simply to share this abundance with others who might have shared similar beliefs. We can trust the universe to provide for our desires as long as we are committed to sharing our love and abundance with others. We are worthy of love and respect from everyone simply because we give it first. By adopting these more empowering beliefs we can shift our paradigm from one of unworthiness to one of being someone who can manifest abundance in our life and in the lives of others.
Remember… we are what we believe. Be Mindful… Pause… Connect!

Open Mind Required

Minds are like parachutes… they work best when open! So what does it mean to have an open mind? Is it possible to have a truly blank mind like that of a young child, to whom everything is new and exciting and sometimes overwhelming? What would the world look like if we were to achieve this state of being? Would life seem exciting, stimulating and always with something new to learn and experience? What would it take to return to that state of having a truly open mind?
It would first require examining our limiting beliefs and be willing to let them go. Judgments would have to go as well. How can we have a completely open mind when we are labelling and judging things as good or bad based on our past experience? Next it would require deep listening (mindfulness) and willingness to take in information, knowledge, and wisdom from any source, not just ones we deem as acceptable.
Would this totally throw you off? Most likely! It would wipe out the foundation of life and discernment that most of us have built up over a lifetime. However, what would the benefits be? Is it possible that this is what we need to change… now that the world is awakening? Would a truly open mind be required to be part of these exciting times? Be Mindful… Pause… Connect!

Are You Worthy?

Do you feel like you have to prove yourself as being worthy or tend to judge yourself? Is this a positive or negative thing? Most of us were taught that we must make lots of money in order to prove our worth, that we have to compete for our place in the world, that we must do well on the test or win the game, that we are inherently flawed and must perform well to be deserving of love. Sound familiar? Looking back, it is easy to see this pattern in most of our lives. Has this kind of thinking motivated you or propelled you to success? Or has it cost you in certain areas of your life?

What would happen if you saw yourself as a perfect and powerful spark of Source Energy? Would you love yourself and recognise your inherent worth more completely? Would you see this life as a wonderful gift in which you are meant to share your love and your wisdom with as many people as possible? Would you strive to accomplish good things for your community, not out of a need to prove yourself worthy, but out of a sense of gratitude for the amazing gifts you have been given!
