What is your gauge towards success?

I think we ask ourselves this question everyday.  Sometimes we answer it, sometimes we don’t.  We have this fairy tale idea of what success is when we are little.  My four old always want me to tie a blanket around her neck so that she can be super girl and fly around the house.  I Love her imagination.  I Love to watch her play and wonder what pictures are popping up in her head.  All things are possible to her.  She is not old enough to allow logic to destroy her dreams.  When she is sad she will cry.  When she is mad she will scream.  When she is happy she will run around the house screaming with joy.  It is hard to tell her to be quiet because she is preoccupied with joy.

When was the last time you were preoccupied with joy.  She has no care in the world because all of her basic needs are taken care of.  Her only concern is what mood will her mom be in today.  Will mom be happy, silly, mad or sad.  What is she going to make me do today to get a cookie?  The point is, deep in her soul, she knows that she is taken care of.  She relies on that unseen force, that spirit that is more powerful than ourselves.

Whether you are mad, sad, angry, happy, sick, depressed or you fill in the blank; they are always there with hand out.  They are waiting for you to calm down and grab their hand when you need it.  A child demands it, expects it, so they receive it.  We must do the same in our quiet time.  The time we spend with spirit.  We must expect what we ask for.

Back to the original question.  What is your gauge for success?

  1. Do you want money?
  2. Do you want love?
  3. Do you want peace?
  4. Do you want understanding?
  5. Do you want ______?

It is not always a question of whether we will receive what we want.  The answer is, are we releasing enough control to allow the powers that be to do the work and give it to us?

We are already there, we just need to see it, expect it, get out of the way and allow it.  When we were children we didn’t have our logical minds putting us in a maze of destruction.

Expect change!

What do you expect out of life? What we expect, we get! This is why we tend to have the same size house as our parents or the one we spent a lot of time in. This is why we tend to make the same amount of money as our parents, or our mentors. This is why we dress the same way as our environment teaches us. If you live in Texas we like boots and big hats. If you live in the country, we like plaid shirts and comfortable blue jeans. If you live in the city and have an office job, we tend to wear dress shirts and slacks.

We either love our environment or we hate our environment. If we hate our environment, how do we get out? So often we pray or cry out to spirit, wanting a change. Spirit says OK, what would you like? We tell spirit what we want. Spirit says, “It is yours.” Some how we didn’t hear this answer. Why?

  • We are our environments.
  • We expect no change to occur.
  • We fight spirit, because we don’t believe.
  • We have too many voices inside or outside of our heads fighting change.

So we ask the question again, “Why are things not changing, if we already know this?”  We have already excepted this and think we are ready for change.  We have worked on this a long time.

We have to be willing to walk through the fear (False Evidence Appearing Real) to allow change to occur.  If you get up everyday and have a cup of coffee.  You expect a cup of coffee.  If you don’t get that cup of coffee, you will seek it out.  If Spirit tells you to stop drinking the coffee in the morning to have success, you will fight it because it does not make since to you.  You are fighting the advice that will change your direction.  Not drinking the cup of coffee is another dimension that you don’t understand.  So you chose another direction, maybe the wrong direction and change does not occur.  While you want to reach this dimension, you don’t understand the rules, regulations or the day to day activities  You feel as though you don’t belong.  You fight to stay away from going to go to the next level.  The next level makes you uncomfortable, so you stay where you are at.

You have to be willing to put up with the change that comes with what you want.  Create a new environment for yourself.  Make the new environment home.  There is a strong part of you that wants this new place, so navigate the rapid waters and start your new path.

Today we live in what I call the microwave age.

I have so many clients ask me

  • When is the pain of the injury going to go away?
  • How long will it take for the muscles to heal?
  • How long will it take me to loose weight?
  • When am I going to feel better?
  • When am I going to master this energy work thing.
  • How long will it take to start making money at the home based business.

 

In the information age we has lost our ability to relax our minds and wait the natural course of time for an activity to prosper.

We say that we want everything now, we buy lottery ticket and hope to win despite the odds.  We go to fast food restaurants expecting good quality food.  We want to take a  pill so that we can look like a model, have perfect skin as well as have the energy of a four year old.  We can have all of these things if we take the proper actions and give it the proper time to be accomplished.

Here is what is funny.  As far as money is concerned, the people who are financially prosperous are the ones that do the work and allow the time for their business or job to mature to the point of making good money.  As far as restaurants are concerned, we go to a places like The Bread Company because we want fresh bread.  We love the smell of the bread, the moisture, the texture and the taste.  The bread that takes 3-6 hours to make.  The owners of The Bread companies take the time to make the bread right.  In taking the time to make it right, they have many customers that desire their food.  They have success.

As far as having the model appearance, perfect skin and the energy of a four year old we must take the necessary steps and give it the proper time.  If we exercised, ate right and spent time with spirit everyday, we would get just what we wanted.  I will explain the time table this way.  All of the work out programs that are successful give you a chart to tract your progress, a meal plan and tips for success.  The reason they do this is so that you give the program a reasonable amount of time.  They want you to tract your progress so that you see the rewards along the way to motivate you.  Insanity is a 2 month program.  P90X is a 90 day program.  I could go on and on, however the point is patients.

Give yourself the time to succeed.  Be patient.  You will succeed!

There are simple things that we can do everyday day to re-train our minds to work in our favor rather than work against us.  We talk to ourselves constantly, some of us talk out loud and some of us talk silently.  Sometimes we hear the chatter, sometime we don’t.  If we don’t hear the chatter in our mind, and it is negative, it is hard to change.

How do we turn off the monkey mind, as we call it, and turn on the messages to success?

What are the self help exercises that we can do to have our mental tape recorder playing positive thoughts?

  1. Pay attention to what you think about.  Turn the volume up.
  2. Take notes of the messages you hear.  What is the phrase my father said in which I play over and over again in my mind?
  3. Take action to change these messages.
  4. Practice constantly.

A good way to pay attention to the mental messages in your head is listen to what you are telling your spouse, your children, your pet or you co-worker?  Who do you sound like?  If you said that to yourself, would you like hearing it?  One message that I liked from my mom, “You can do anything that you set your mind to.”  This is a good message that I payed attention to and I play in my mind all the time.  If it is a bad message, obviously you need to stop playing the message.  However you must be aware of the message first.

Write these message down.  If you don’t like to write, make a tape recording of yourself so that you can check back on your progress later.

Here is the part that I love, take action.  So often we recognize the message and we try to stuff that message so far back into our consciousness it will never be seen again.  The problem is the harder we stuff, the more it comes up.  I want you to treat the message the same way you would train a dog.  When I am trying to get a certain behavior out of my dog, I try to balance reward and discipline.

  1. When you recognize the message, make note and decide your action.
  2. With a good message, play it often and give your treat for good behavior.
  3. With a bad message, literally tell yourself no, no.
  4. Practice these two things often, minute by minute if necessary.
  5. Take breaks when needed

These or short and cute exercise, however they can be effective.  You are telling you mind that the bad messages are not OK.  Start creating new memories, memories that create success.  The more you hear something, the more likely the change.  You can eliminate the negative message playing for good.  You must practice.  When an athlete wants to play his best, and have predictable results on the field, they practice hours a day.  This practice always starts in the mind!

Obviously the goal is to change the messages and create good behavior in your mental thoughts.  As you move towards these bad messages, other stuff can comes up.  Expect this, sometimes it means you are going in the right direction.  It is better for it to come up, so that you can manipulate the situation to the direction you want to go in.  If you need help, considering a Reiki session or an Akashic Records reading.

 

The Simple thing I can do Daily to achieve Success!

We get up early, go to work, eat in between and go to bed.  If we stay at home, we still get up early, take care of household things (if you have children, most of your energy goes there), eat somewhere, and find (by the grace of god) our way to the bed.  We go through this cycle everyday, without thinking about it.  When you go to work or take your children to school, do you even remember the drive.  Were you in a trance that kicked on and guided your actions?

  • We must schedule down time everyday!
  • We must schedule rewards intermittently throughout the day!
  • We must stop at moments and give ourselves a pat on the back!

When was the last time you scheduled an appointment with your friend to have lunch?  When was the last time you went for a drive by yourself, without a agenda in mind?  Have you ever scheduled tea in the afternoon, where your calender has a 15 block saying “tea break”?

In Italy most stores close down in the afternoon for people to have a siesta.  The whole country has scheduled in their daily routine to take a break in the afternoon.  Studies have shown that the calmer you are internally, the healthy you are physically and mentally.  Studies have also shown that people in Italy have a lower change of having high blood press and other stress related illnesses.  I will say that some of this is due to the wine consumption, however this is also a form of scheduled down time.  You don’t have to drink wine during your down time, or drink alcohol to force downtime, however you must rest during your down time.  If we don’t schedule down time our bodies will schedule it for us in a form of sickness.  We sleep every night because I bodies need rest.  We need to schedule the breaks throughout the day for the same reason.

We must get use to scheduling our own down time.  Once we get into a routine of scheduling down time, our system get use to rest.  The schedule of rest burns into our subconscious minds as the new thing we do automatically.  Our cells remember and look forward to getting breaks throughout the day and starst to relax.  Once our cells relax automatically the pressure to overwork is eliminated and your blood pressure can regulate.  We can create a new pattern for ourselves.  If we have more energy overall, we have more energy to succeed on our life journey.

What are the simple things I can do to achieve success daily?

  1. Schedule a breaks everyday. (Just like our jobs give us 15 minute breaks every 4 hours)
  2. Allow you cells to create a new pattern of relaxation.
  3. Give your self a pat on the back for the improvement.

Go accomplish your daily success!

What is the difference between winning something and having success?

Some self help thoughts to help you navigate through the difference between winning something and having success.  Some of us grow up with the win win attitude.  We watch a football game and all we care about is our team winning.  We place a bet on the game, whether it be a wager bet or a gentlemen bet.  We go to our child’s soccer game and we want them to win so badly, a part of us wants to run out there and play for them.  Now we are spending time with our friends, playing a friendly game of Wii sports and our winning nature has crossed over into our relaxing fun time.

  • Where does this behavior begin and end?
  • Are we carrying this behavior into our personal lives?
  • Are we teaching our children to be overly competitive?
  • Have we brought this behavior into our dream lives, into our subconscious mind?

If we are trying to win all the time, everything is a game.   Everything is a competition.  Our mind, body and spirit never have a change to relax.  If we don’t win at the game more than 50% of the time, we become extremely unhappy.  This is no way to live.

The better way to live is to be successful.  Always striving to do your best.  Comparing what you do today to what you did yesterday.  Improving on your own personal work, rather than someone else’s work.  Success is taking steps everyday to improve your personal life.

  • What do you want to be when you grow up? (remember that we never grow up so we are always improving)
  • What do you want to be successful doing?
  • What are the resources that you need to use in order to improve your personal stats?
  • Who do you need help from?
  • What rewards are you going to give yourself for accomplishing your personal improvements for the day?

Remember that you must be in balance to feel like improving your life.

  1. Make sure you take care of your physical body.
  2. Eat live food.
  3. Exercise
  4. Have a personal relationship with spirit everyday.

Don’t treat life as a game to win, treat life as a journey towards success!

There are steps to success!

  • Having a relationship with spirit.
  • Eating food that is live!
  • Taking care of yourself and Exercise daily!
  • Making money doing what you love!

Here I would like to focus on giving your subconscious mind what it needs to be satisfied.  Especially the dark side of your personality.  We must love all aspects of ourselves and that means loving the dark side as well.

What is it about your personality that you would like to keep private?  The dark side of your personality you can not live without?  That part of you which you are embarrassed about?  The part of you that you are embarrassed about is actually what makes you happy when you have it.

  • Do you like drama and cannot get enough of it on television?
  • Do you like to fight and can’t get enough of the fight club?
  • Do you like to haggle to the point where you are taking the shirt off the other persons back?  Would we find you at an auction or yard sale?
  • Do you like the _______ explicit part of the world?  You fill in the blank, you know yourself.

What is the trick to feeding this side of ourselves and still loving ourselves?

  1. You must love yourself just the way you are.
  2. Know that you are going to have good aspects and bad aspects.  Call it a balance, you must have ying and yang.
  3. Identify that part of yourself that you keep in the closet.
  4. Determine how much you need to fill your freak tank.
  5. Look for a safe way to fill the tank,
  6. Be happy knowing that you are receiving what you want.
  7. Remember that you are not alone, many people feel the exactly the same way you do.

 

Let’s use one of the examples above.  I like drama.  When a friend or stranger has a juicy story to tell, I am all over it.  I want to know every detail.  I want to know who is dating whom.  I want to know who broke up with whom.  When I am in the line at the grocery store, I must take a glance at the magazines to see what the stars are doing.  This is a side of me that I am not proud of.  However, this is a side of me.  How I fill the need for drama and make a positive personality trait out of a negative, is to look at my weakness as a strength.  A lot of my healing work involves talking, and I love to talk.  I love to get to the root of the issue and clear the energy associated with the problem.  I will offer myself a reward here and there by picking up the magazine and flipping through the pages.  I do not buy the magazine, however, it allows me some dessert.  If I allow myself a little of what I need, then I won’t buy the magazine, take it home, and read it for an hour.  I can use the energy to read the magazine to do healing work, taking what I saw as a weakness and using it for good.

When you have done everything you can, it is time to look inside and see what you need to clear energetically to feel complete.

This all sounds simple, however, how do I do it.  Having a relationship with spirit helps you face the dark side of yourself.  If you would like help with this have an Akashic Record Reading.

What are the self help techniques that I can do to raise my vibration and accomplish my goals?

  1. Self help starts with a personal relationship with spirit!

  2. Self help continues with knowing thyself.

  3. Knowing what makes you happy solidifies self help.

Checking in with your spirit every day makes self help long lasting. Listen to your spirit guides, the angles who are watching over you.

 

If you don’t know how to do these self help techniques, take a class, read a book, watch a video or listen to a audio. I offer Introduction to energy work classes that gives you the basics. You have to start somewhere. If you know the basics take a Reiki class, an Akashic Records class, or a healing modality that has been on your mind forever. The more time you spend with spirit the higher your vibration will be and the more you will hear from your guides, angles, and personal spirit.

The answer to being able to go to the next level, being able to accomplish your goals, make extra money  or eliminate physical pain is clearing the energy that stops you. Knowing what that energy is means having a better relationship with spirit.

 

We must take care of our vessel, our body!

Our bodies must be in good physical condition to hold the vibration of listening to spirit.

 

  1. Get a massage regularly, see the chiropractor regularly or learn self help exercises to do daily until you can afford it.

  2. Exercise everyday.

  3. Eat Live Food!

 

Many people think that massage is all fluffy. Your cells have to circulate in order to push out the old and bring in the new. Some of us can not get a massage everyday as the pharaohs did.  The way to keep your cells circulating and remain physically young  is to exercise. The other way to stay young and healthy is to give your body the nutrients it needs to have the energy to do physical activities.  Here is a massage tip!

 

We must take care of our physical need!

 

  1. We must have money

  2. We must have time

  3. We must have love

 

In order to make money successfully we must love what we are doing. Self help here comes from knowing what you love and finding a way to make money with it. With a creative mind, from yourself or from an expert, you can make money from doing what you love. When you are making money doing what you love, you seem to have more time and energy. This helps everything else fall into place. Once things start falling into place, you can look in the mirror and have love for yourself. Self love sustains you forever!

Yesterday we talked about how to meditate successfully.  There are all forms of meditation, we just have to find the one that works for us!

Lets answer a few question about meditation and why it is so important to do it everyday.

  • What is meditation?
  • Why should I meditate, especially everyday?
  • How do I meditate?
  • What type of results should I expect from my meditation?

What are some clues that I had a successful mediation?

What is meditation?

A practice in which an individual trains the mind to induce a mode of consciousness to realize some benefit. We don’t have to sit in a uncomfortable position while trying to reach a higher state of consciousness. We want to train our minds to find a place of peace quickly. If you desire to reach a state of higher consciousness, this is a good place to start.

Why should I meditate, especially everyday?

The goal with meditation is to train your mind to reach a state of harmony. We must be able to quiet the beast inside. The ones who have too much scheduled in one day, our boss or spouse (for you stay at home people) seems to always project his/her bad day at me, my kids see me as the worst parent ever, or everywhere I turn is a negative situation. We have so many reason to meditate, to find a quiet place in our minds.

  • Many times we are in situations where we are not give a room to decompress.
  • Home is not as relaxing as we like.
  • It is raining the day we need the long walk.

If you practice everyday to calm your mind, find the happy place or get the stress out. You will have a better life. You will be able to close you eyes, take a deep breathe and be there. Heaven on earth.
How do I mediate?

Part of successful meditation is knowing thy self. Are you a thinker and you need to know how to clear the mind? Are you a physically hyper person and you need to know how to clear the body? Are you a audio person who is are aware of every noise around you (you swear you were a dog in a past life) or at least it feels that way sometimes; you need to be able to turn the noise off in your head? Are you an all the above person, like me and have to find a way to target it all? You need to suit the meditation to compliment how your mind and body operates already.

  • Do you need to sit back and listen to music to quiet the internal noise?
  • Do you need to work out everyday, made twice a day?
  • Do you need to do brainteasers to calm the mind?

Once you have satisfied your mind body needs, then you can meditate and create ques to get there fast. An example might be a particular song which relaxes you immediately, or closing your eyes and thinking of the serenity of the stars and/or nature. Find out what works for you.

What type of results should I expect from my meditation?

Remember to set a goal as to what you want from the meditation. The simple answer is to get to your original goal.

  • You will be calmer.
  • You will have a decrease in stress (if you have high blood pressure, mediation will help decrease it).
  • You will be making better choices and decisions.
  • You will be able to sleep better.
  • You will have more energy during waking hours.
  • You will be able to enjoy life to the fullest.

What are some clues that I had a successful mediation?

You notice that you are handling stressful situation better (an example is your hormonal child, doesn’t bother you as much).
You feel lighter, like you have lost a few pounds.
You could feel your skin tingling.
When you are having conversation, you will have a better connect with that person.

Hope this helps, Nameste

One of the keys to success in life is successfully having a relationship with spirit. It doesn’t matter what you believe in as long as you are checking in with your spirit everyday. We talk to our co-workers everyday. We talk to our spouses, or significant others everyday. Hopefully we are talking to ourselves everyday, giving encouraging words so that you can look in the mirror and say “job well done!”

One form of communicating with spirit everyday is to meditate. I think we have a mis-understanding of what meditation is. We all see the guy sitting in Indian style (some people can’t even get in that position!) with his hands held out facing up, his eyes closed and his body at peace. We have a respect for this position. We admire the peace we see in this guy. If you are empathic like me, you can feel the serenity within the picture. Once this is put in our consciousness, we want a piece of the experience. The problem with this guy is we are not this guy. We must find a form of meditation that work for us.

There are many forms of mediation, we must find the method that works for us.

Sitting meditation

yoga meditation

exercising

singing

listening to music

walking

reading a book

gardening

deep conversation with a friend

dancing

I want to give you a sitting mediation, for those of you that like that. For those of you that don’t like that, develop you own moving meditation and practice. We will talk more on that tomorrow.

  1. Sit in a quiet place.
  2. Turn on some soothing music.
  3. Make sure there is blue and green color around (these are soothing colors).Light a candle.
  4. If you want to dump a lot of negative energy, put a bowl of water near by,Take a deep breath (breath in on a count of 7 and out on a count of 7),3- 7 times.
  5. While you are taking these deep breaths, breath in divine blue light and breath out all the unwanted energy.
  6. Once you have reached a place of harmony, sit quietly for a period of time and bathe in the sweet energy.
  7. Allow yourself to come back in the room.
  8. Share the energy with others during the day. (what goes out comes back to us)

 

 

Enjoy and see you tomorrow!
