Thrive Through Awareness Of Your Natural Cycles.

Thrive Through Awareness Of Your Natural Cycles.

There is added value in following one’s own natural cycles. Akin to the ocean and her tidal movements, you as individuals have your own ebbs, flows, high tide, low tide and so forth.

When you wake up in the morning you may get an inkling of how you would like your day to be. First connect with yourself to get a sense of your energy level or flow that day.

In particular, when on holidays, you will often find the choice is completely yours. Do you rest in bed a little longer and have a late breakfast or get up earlier to chase the first waves of daylight? These decisions and more are best made in accordance with your own inner cycle.

Similarly at work you may find that you feel a maxim of productivity spilling forth from your entire being. Master those tasks perceived as more difficult or time-consuming. It is like riding a big wave and feeling the energy behind you, carrying you easily. The same applies when working. Use this vitality to get through the larger tasks. Another day may see a more gentle low tide where energetically your natural inclination is sombre and calm, perhaps slower even. Undertake the quieter and less challenging tasks where possible.

Even for the creatives, when experiencing a lull in inspiration, you can choose to focus on the admin tasks or ride the internet absorbing creative designs of others that may not even be related to your field.

You know how it is when the creative juices are overflowing and you don’t even have to think about the actual design, solution, or next phase of your project. This state will flow to you again so rest in your down time in good faith.

Our cycles can be daily, hourly, interspersed in blocks of a month or more. However yours are occurring is the truth for you. No need to push extra hard all of the time.

The space that you give yourself to wind down provides you with big wave energy when later required.

Trust in this. Stay in sync with your energy cycles as much as possible. Be kind to you when you feel low or even diminished. For it is the physical, intellectual and emotional being asking you for quiet moments for energetic restoration.

The energy will be replenished and you have no need to fear otherwise. Rest and restore then truly invite the energy supply for continued circulation. It only completely stops for long periods if you believe this to be the case. Rest and say yes to the energy flowing to every cell.

Do yourself a favour, ask yourself how you are feeling today. Then respond with loving kindness taking your needs in to account.

This is self-love in action – or sometimes via inaction. Both are valuable and underpin your ability to thrive.

Joining The Human Dots

Joining The Human Dots

Start with a blank canvas. You can do this at any time. Find your centre, locate the grounded position of mind where mental chatter has ceased and view your blank canvas. If you could paint anything whatsoever on this canvas to please you, what would you paint? What colours, strokes or patterns? Would it excite you to look at this finished canvas? Would it calm you and provide a sense of deep contemplation? Would it invigorate your being? Or would it exemplify a point of focus?

If we were each to undertake the creative application of expressing ourselves on a canvas, to later show each other our work, we would realise the results would be unique. Perhaps we might have some similarities with another in choice of colours used or even share a particular flow of the brush.

Still we would not discover that any two of us painted an identical art work.

We are each intricate beings with unique settings and combinations, both varied and real, yet connecting and interconnecting irrespective of our contrasts.

This is often due to our innate approach that involves seeking out the similarities and the overlaps, the preference of the same colour scheme!

Ultimately we uncover the crossover in experience and the analogous memories, hopes and dreams bring us closer together. We feel validated and excited at the same time knowing that this other person, even a stranger, contributes to our understanding of life experiences.

Do you want to go a little further?

Challenge yourself to find the commonality in those that you feel least connected to in your life or surrounds.

Open your mind and your heart so as to glimpse what like, preference or even dream it is that you have in common.

It is in this way, with this awareness, that you will continue to join the human dots. You will gently forge one seamless flowing connection from one to another. The walls of delusion and division will disappear as you recall that you all have the same human heart beating, beating, beating in time.

Coming From Love.

Coming From Love.

With light comes honesty and integrity. And so when one walks into the light they are surrendering their ego, secrets, untruths and their own self-denial.

This may require some energetic purging, some clearing of old energies and letting go of former behaviours, ideas, activities, even people, who no longer serve your highest good in this life.

This is not to say that one is then entitled to be judgmental for this would clearly indicate that the ego is still having its say and control in perceiving a situation.

The enlightened person looks at all of their brothers and sisters with love and compassion. Where anger once was, gentle understanding can be reached. Where hatred was once felt, an incoming genuine love can be received and sent.

There is no right or wrong. There is only this opinion or that opinion. For either party holding the opinion it will feel completely true and right. Their ego will seek the evidence it believes is required to back up the opinion held. Sometimes it may even occur that a simple truth or fact may be ingested and regurgitated by the ego and later look nothing like its original form. This is humanity’s challenge of mind/ego mixed with belief.

In all of the world arguments, even those close to home, rise above and survey the conflict below. You will see that coming from love could mend them all.

That first truly remembering that you are all one, all from the same source, and all brothers and sisters, that you would cease fighting.

It would only take one long look in the other’s eyes and the willingness to see through to the heart for you to remember this and hug.

The love and care of each other outweighs all differences of opinions. However it takes truly being in the light, truly seeing another and feeling their heart for all conflict to dissipate.

Living The Dream.

Living The Dream.

For some time now you have held a dream close to your heart. It has filled you with happiness to think of it coming true and you’ve allowed yourself the languid pleasure of daydreaming about how it will look and feel once experienced. It has nurtured your hope and nourished your faith. Then it starts to materialise.

Suddenly you find yourself caught up in the excitement of it becoming tangible. Then, as if lurking in a dark alley way, fear appears ready to be a game changer. “What if it’s too soon? What if I fail? What if I don’t have what it takes after all to pull this off?” What if, what if, what if.

Your ego comes into play, and oddly enough, does it’s best to undermine your new reality by engaging you in negative self talk.

So here you stand with the very creation that you have dreamed into a manifested/manifesting state and the same you starts to almost talk it out of existence. Yes it’s a quandary but it need not be.

Try this instead. Silence your mind for a moment. Take a few deep breaths, or place your attention on a physical object or landscape, and let your thoughts ease. Now check in with your feelings and take time to describe these to yourself. How do you feel? Where is it warm? Where are you buzzing? Where in you feels at peace? You may discover other sensations like elation, excitement, bliss, wonder, awe and gratitude. Stay in the feeling state a little while longer. Really soak up the abundance of good energy that circulates your being.

Look at your project again – this new reality that you have manifested. With your heart open and excitement coursing through your veins, continue with your leap of faith.

The flow is already coming to you. No need to block it and certainly you won’t want to control this. All that is required is your allowing and subsequent joyfulness at your own creative magnificence.

This is yours. You deserve every delicious feeling that arises. Know that no one can take this away from you, especially not yourself if you stay in faith and the present moment.

Feel more, fear less and keep living the dream.

The Gift Of Being Present.

The Gift Of Being Present.

Picture the perfect deserted island with pure white sand sliding between your toes as you walk peacefully. It is plentiful with all that you need to nourish yourself. The sun shines brightly and shelter abounds allowing fresh breeze to maintain a comfortable temperature. You have no worries in the world, no meeting to rush to, no traffic to contest and no financial responsibilities. Your mood is one of complete joy and relaxation, the ultimate emotional cocktail.

Now look away from this writing and what is it you see? Just the objects. Yes objects of this reality right now. Which one is your favourite? Why? It makes you feel good right? It is part of your reality. Thank the Universe that it is yours.

Look at your partner, your child or children, or if alone, think of someone you adore.

Breathe in the beautiful feeling that they exude. This is your reality. Thank the Universe that they are in your life.

Sit quietly and hold your other hand. Feel it slowly and discover the shape of your palm, the dip before you connect to your fingers, the lines, the creases, the softness or roughness. Sit quieter still and feel the energy in your hands. Your life source, your own enchanting essential self vibrating gently with energy. How incredible that you can touch and sense so much through your finger tips. This is you. Thank the Universe for all of your senses for they allow you experience all of the obvious and subtle beauty that crosses your path each moment.

Make yourself a promise that tomorrow you will notice three ultimate sensory experiences.

It might mean really smelling the delicious coffee before it reaches your lips. Truly smelling it. It could be poignantly noticing the soft fur of your pet as you give it a morning cuddle. Perhaps it will be breathing in the sea air and honestly noticing the freshness it delivers to the insides of your nostrils.

There are many more wonderful experiences that you will discover if only you will allow yourself to be present. You do not need to go on holidays to that picture perfect tranquil island to enjoy life. No it is in the moments that you truly allow yourself the gift of being present that will shape your everyday into something magnificent. It costs you nothing and yet rewards you endlessly.

Your Path To Success.

Your Path To Success.

There are paths walked by many and yet not always appropriate for all. Some will diverge, put heads together and concoct the new and different life experiences that they will live during this lifetime and that others can choose to live.

It is not to say that one path is better than another. Simply they are different. From this difference arises more choice and an increase in possibilities. Ideas are given testing grounds and for those whom these paths or even lifestyles resonate with, they will be naturally drawn. For those who do not resonate, they may try to or use their minds and wills to follow the same path but their heart’s will become heavier.

If this is your experience right now perhaps it is time to explore what paths are on offer. Allow yourself to discover the one that excites you. Follow it, trust in the change and know that if it is moving your core and making you feel alive then it is in alignment with your desires.

Perchance, should more of the paths you see not stir a significant interest then it could be timely for you to be the pioneer and charter your own new terrain. It could be a place, a project, a role, a way of solving a challenge that no-one else has knowledge of.

Take courage when undertaking new projects, significant life changes, start ups or implementing your visions, for they are not limited to you and your life. Through you, these initiatives will always contribute to wider humanity, communities, families and most often, your own family. Often times, to live your own life fully, this stepping forth into a not-yet-known experience really is your only choice.

You know that you feel the desire, the pull of this calling, so allow yourself to be the servant of this direction.

You do not need to push, not unless you “believe” that you have to push! Focus on the desire and then allow the flow. The secret here is to notice all of the small gifts along the way for they are here to remind you that yes, this feels good, my desires are becoming realities and the Universe is delivering.

You are all creative for you all create your reality.

Whether it is a reality that fills your soul and heart with joy or one that disappoints, come back to you and survey the beliefs you have. What are your default thoughts that you entertain? What are the opinions you have of yourself and do they support you or undermine you?

Keep choosing. Choose the positivity, choose love, choose possibility, choose to believe in magic and so it will all be yours.

Set your self the small task of checking in with your thoughts for one hour each day. Simply notice what they are. Do not indulge your thoughts and avoid judging yourself for having them. Ok, now what areas or what thoughts or opinions would you like to tweak? How can you transform these to better reflect the happiness, success, or even love that you desire?

Put this into practice. If you tell yourself for example, that your brother is more successful and really has the business brain in the family and you don’t, shift this into a higher more self serving gear. “My brother is so clever at business and how wonderful that I can tap into his knowledge and experience AND add my talent and skill for relating so well to people/customers!” How much better do you feel when you read this?

Eliminate any of the competitive thoughts or comparisons with others. You are you. We all have our unique set of gifts, talents, passions and experiences. Focus on this. All of the other stuff is simply time-wasting static that diverts you from your true course. Do an inventory of all your skills, talents, capabilities, experience and list what gives you ultimate pleasure. This is very important, for when we come from pure desire, we always succeed.

If we are only focusing on money then that’s all you get, money. If you are focusing on all of the joys of success, then guess what? This will be your experience: a joyful exciting journey and success that truly reflects a rich happiness.

You can have it all. Anyone who told you that you cannot, didn’t have it all.

Make your decision today to choose to live a fulfilling and successful life on every level and take note of all of the signs that this is your reality now. Gratitude will only ever bring you closer to your wildest dreams.

Choose The Now.

Choose The Now.

The sensation of emotion is a varied tool. From it’s simplest purpose of allowing you to feel happiness, contentment, excitement and love to being an indicator of where your mind is currently at.

Emotions can be your guide. They can be your way of knowing what you are thinking in this very moment.

Do you feel at peace? Yes? This is wonderful.

Do you feel uneasy? Are you worried, stressed or feeling low? This too is wonderful. For these emotions are guiding you to know that “mind” or thinking has taken over. Rather than being in the present moment it is likely that you are thinking of the past that you cannot change, or ahead into a future that you cannot control.

If this resonates with you while reading this, know that you can tweak your emotions by choosing your thoughts, or even choosing to let them go. If in this instant you come back to your now, you will start to feel calmer, more tranquil.

Come back to the now and sit with me in this. Look around. What do you see? Disregard feelings for a moment and simply observe. What you see is in your present. What you smell or taste is in your present. When we do this the mind stops projecting thoughts or analysis on potential future situations. Instead your attention (and you) reside in the now. You are in the present moment. Experience this a moment longer.

It feels good doesn’t it? It’s nice to have the space for the soul, mind and heart to be at peace, for the emotions to give you a sense of joy in this tranquility. This is called consciousness.

When your mind, attention and being are focused on the moment you are conscious. You will notice that your interactions with others are further enriched. You detect the subtle beauty of your relationships and experience the magic of your life in an expanded way.

Apply this to your work. Be in the moment, attend to your projects, tasks and meetings with attention on the now. The results are always improved.

Know that you are required to undertake the task and that you have the choice to do this in a focused and more relaxed way.

It is simply your outlook and perception that ultimately counts. For the deadline is a deadline. A due date. How you arrive at this – in a focused calm way in the moment, or a projected stressful way focused on the future with fear or dread, is your choice. Your approach does not change the existence of the deadline.

Your conscious attention on the task will transform the experience into one of enjoyment and satisfaction. Do not be surprised if the quality of the outcome is also enhanced.

Check in with yourself. While at work, or at home, or at the gym or even out at dinner. Check in with your emotions. If they feel positive and agreeable to you, continue in your joyful moments. On the contrary, if they are bringing you down, restricting your happiness or tying you up in knots, start tweaking. For with the focus on the now, your wellbeing and countenance will improve.

After all if your thoughts are on the past, this has already happened and no amount of thinking will change what has occurred. And if you continuously think of the future, this too is in the future. It hasn’t happened yet and you cannot control this either.

This is why we choose the now. This is the moment you can affect with your choice to be in the present. Enjoy this and allow many more wonderful moments (or nows) to flow to you.
