What Is Directing Your Choices?

What Is Directing Your Choices
So many realizations on how I have stepped over so many people in my life, carrying the baggage of guilt or shame, always at the back of my mind. This includes my beloved children. As we step over our broken promises and agreements of being a trustworthy friend, a compassionate lover, or a present mother/father, our choices begin to be made unconsciously from the past!
For instance, your son spills the milk and it pours all over the beautiful beige shag rug. In the process of trying to catch the glass before the mishap, mom's glass of red wine gets knocked off the table and and all over her white blouse as well as the floor....She reacts in an irrational manner, yelling or giving the child advice which really is just criticism and blame! Where is this reaction coming from?? Initially, she believes that the reaction supports what happened, also saying, "This is my personality." "This is who I am." At the same time, her son s…

Meaning

When you take the meaning out of everything, you are left with no-thing. With no-thing, you can create any-thing. When we have meaning depict what we see, hear, smell, touch, and taste, we make judgments or evaluations, and they are ALL coming from the past. No exceptions.

Being in the present moment, without adding meaning to everything, takes you out of the past and out of the future. You are then able to make decisions from WISDOM.

Many friends and clients ask me, "How do I stop the mind-chatter to be in the present?" "That's what's hard." Clean up the mess!! Go to the "source", acknowledge it, and see the distinction between what happened and the story that was formed. The story is the illusion. This creates AWARENESS. From that point you have a CHOICE. You can continue to live within the story and the misery it creates, or you can make a commitment to yourself to let it be and create from NOW.

By doing this, you don't disregar…

Broken Promises

When we go to the 'source' of unworkability, there is a broken promise or agreement with either yourself or others. Many of us try to avoid the consequences or the potential conflict that may arise in the situation if we deal with it in a straight fashion - if we face it.

When we don't deal with the broken promises or agreements, we begin to strip away our integrity. We become dead or numb, not only to ourselves but to the world. We slide into a fog and overwhelm.

Are you living with integrity from the heart? To reclaim your power, stop stepping over the things that create that chatter in your head. The mind frick that won't go away.

Be authentic and be real with yourself. Begin instilling a new, positive and powerful habit to restore your divinity. With all this mind chatter, we cannot hear the still, small voice from within. Do the work, and you will go from confusion or a deadness to clarity, peace, and freedom.

Uncovering Your Values

There is always a lot of talk about values. I'm sure you have heard these words, "When you know your values and you are aligned with them, you live with harmony. Basically, what this means is that when you honor your values in your daily activities and your goals, you live with joy and peace of mind.

How do you uncover your values, though? That's the question. In my experience, I was living with a lot of baggage, and with that baggage, I had no idea what my values were. I was so afraid to be judged by others, conforming to their opinions and wants, that my values were not only unclear, they were no where to be seen. "What? Values? What the heck are they?"

I know what I 'needed' to do to survive. I lived in an 'identity' that was coming from the past. I 'thought' I had clearly defined values (whatever that meant at the time), but those values were coming from my conditioned past as well as all of societies views and what they th…

Great Things Arise From Small Things

Great Arises Come From Small Things
"Whenever you notice that some form of negativity has arisen within you, look on it not as a failure, but as a helpful signal that is telling you: Wake up. Get out of your mind. Be Present."

"The great arises out of small things that are honored and cared for. Everybody’s life really consists of small things. Greatness is a mental abstraction and a favorite fantasy of the ego. The paradox is that the foundation for greatness is the honoring of the small things in the present moment instead of pursuing the idea of greatness."

"In you, as in each human being, there is a dimension of consciousness far deeper than thought. Love, joy, creative expansion, and lasting inner peace can only come into your life through that unconditioned dimension of consciousness." Eckhart Tolle

Joy Factor

Your joy factor will remain constant as you are continually refining your ideas of what you want, and that's why it is so important for you to get everybody else out of the equation. They've got their own game going on; they don't understand your game. Give them a break; stop asking them what they think. Start paying attention to how you feel. Joy will be yours immediately, and everything else that you have ever thought would make you happy, will start flowing, seemingly effortlessly, into your experience.

Confrontation

Stepping over what's been held back in your life, broken promises or regrets, as well as resentments, anger, and pain take away your power. To reclaim your power, start with small promises to yourself and KEEP them!

To give you an example, think about a diet or an exercise program. When have you promised yourself that you were going to lose that last 10 or 20 pounds? Yet over and over again you beat yourself up after you break that promise to yourself, saying that you are weak or have no will-power. Then you justify yourself by saying, it's hereditary, it's in my genes, or I'm just like my mother/father, or work/children/friends got in the way. The excuses and stories are endless! But what matters the most, is that your self-esteem and your confidence begin to dwindle.

Begin by confronting what is really going on in your life. Take what is happening in the background of your life and bring it to the foreground. FACE your Demon!From that point, be REAL with your…

Depth of Now

"When you allow your emotions to be, you become aware of the depth of Now. The Now is not about what happens but the field, the space in which it happens."

~Eckhart Tolle

The Game of Life

When I choose to look at obstacles as the way the game of life is played, my entire perception changes. One from, "Oh my gawd here I go again." The poor me victim mentality, to "How can I make this work for me?" I can now take on this so called obstacle as more of an exciting challenge and as something I CAN deal with!

"Would you not agree that we are sharing each others breath?And, as we share each others breath, we also share our molecules.And, as we share our molecules, we share our bodies.We are members of One breath, One body, One energy field.We are One informational field, One consciousness.This is not a mystical fact. It is a scientific fact."
