ENOUGH

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

The Fear of “Not Enough”. The fear that WE are not enough. Everybody feels it – The Successful and unsuccessful, the alive and fulfilled, the empty. This deathly feeling of not enough. Everybody feels this in some context: Not rich enough Smart enough Playful enough Pretty enough Strong enough the list goes on… Now when we feel worthless there is no deeper fear than us being not enough; and because we are not enough we cannot possibly be loved; but only we can judge our self-worth, no one else. We are ENOUGH and so much more. Say it, Out Loud. Own it. The world is yearning to LOVE you, all …

Ask yourself

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Did I live? Did I love? Did I matter? Did I grow? Did I learn? Did I break rules? Did I breathe? Did I slide in head first at least once? What will my obituary say? How will I be remembered? Did I do everything I wanted to do? What do i want out of this life and why do I think I can’t have it? What am I doing that I don’t love? These are the questions that matter. These are the questions that grab our veins and shake the dust, shake us from the inside. These are the thoughts that begin to tear down walls, move mountains, tilt the axis …

Go Home, Change The Story

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Take all the Villains and turn them into Heroes. Take all the things that went wrong and make them right. Make what should have happened, what did happen. It’s not delusional, it’s truth, believe it. It’s not a lie, the lie is the dark and grim story you tell yourself. How do I know? Because we were not put on this planet to have or achieve or BE anything else but magnificent. Our magnificence, your magnificence. Don’t compare it to someone else’s. This is your story. For some the story ends as a president, for others, a doctor, a monk, a firemen, a wife, a school teacher, a poet, a …

What Unexpected GOOD Will Happen Today?

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

How many times have you asked that?? Are you ready for all the good that will come your way? Expected and unexpected greatness. Or have you feared the worst? Instead of fearing all the things you wish wouldn’t happen but most likely expect will happen, ask yourself – With the mindset that there is more than enough, nothing but enough GOOD to go around: What good!? All Good! What unexpected good will happen today? What great things will surprise me today? What does the universe have in store for me today? What beautiful lessons will I learn today? Who will I meet? What will I see? Where will the universe …

“I know, I know.”

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

“I know, I know.” “I know, I know.” – you tell someone something that’s what you get, “I know, I know!” I know that you know, but do you believe? Do you own it? We don’t truly believe the things we know are true or right – and it’s not our fault – it’s because we haven’t seen them play out just yet. We haven’t seen them fulfilled or realized. We live in a goal orientated society, but it’s all about the middle, they gray, the little things. Do you truly believe with everything? That it will all be alright, that all you have to do is trust, accept, surrender, …

Honesty… Do Us All A Favor

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Saying how we honestly feel. Saying what we honestly need. How many times a day do you get asked and or you ask, “how are you doing?” – and the immediate auto-pilot response is… “Good” Good, always good. Good or tired. I doubt you are just good, I doubt you are just tired- granted sometimes that’s all we are– but more often than not we are neither, we are so many more things: we are overwhelmed, we are vulnerable, we are sad, we are scared, we are anxious, we are loved, we are grateful, we are not good, we are not alright, etc… When was the last time you said …

The Need For Others

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Like all things, in moderation. But necessary. One cannot find enlightenment alone – it can’t be found in a cave. The inner work must be done but sooner or later we are going to need the chance to practice love and kindness in and around the presence of others. All the peace, presence, stillness one has when they are alone are great, but if they are thrown out the window the second the get cut off on the highway, or meet an unexpected long line – that is where the work comes into play, where we learn our biggest lessons. “Allow the world to be your teacher” You need the …

Not Childish, Child Like

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Child like soul Child like being Minds Imaginations Free spirits – There is nothing wrong with that! You are not childish, you are beautiful and powerful and oh so Child-Like! You are curious. You ask questions because asking questions is how you figure things out. Lots and lots of questions. You hated it when a grown-up told you, “We’ll see.” It’s still unacceptable. Don’t say it yourself. Your body was designed for throwing baseballs, shooting hoops, and jumping off diving boards and stuff. In the secret language of children, the word “fitness” doesn’t exist. It’s called “having fun.” Your world can be half-real and half-imaginary. Food is Energy. You eat …

Becoming A Great Giver

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

In order to become an even greater Liver. Giving is the way. Giving fully. Like the Artist who made it everything. The poet – gave to the poem. The lover- Gave all of himself in search of making the world feel nothing but love. The composer The thinker The writer Every great artist GAVE. Every great person, leader, thinker, human being GAVE. Before the beginning of time we were given everything, everything in total perfection from our creator, from our God. Now it’s time that we Give. Knowing that there is ENOUGH of everything to go around, now what do we do!? Where do we begin when the world is …

Now Thats A To-Do List!

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

The to-do list might be the secret to willpower, and it is certainly an essential tool of creativity, just take it from these folks:   Thomas Edison Circa 1888 Among Edison’s “things doing and to be done,” while he wasn’t busy inventing and scandalizing cinema, were: Cotton picker New standard phonograph Hand turning phonograph Deaf apparatus Electrical piano New expansion pyromagnetic dynamo Artificial silk Phonographic clock Marine telegraphy Chalk battery Ink for blind           Leonardo DaVinci                                                       John Lennon Hand …

Don’t Find, CREATE

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

This is how we manifest reality. We have to show up first. We don’t find a lover, We create them. We don’t find a friend, we create them. We want them to be kind, WE must be kind. We want them to be warm, WE must be warm. “The karma you plant is the karma you get.” They should take care of us, we should take care of the world. They should treat us special, we should treat the world special. It starts with Us. When Jesus resurrected Lazarus, Martha (Lazarus’ wife) said to Jesus, “Where were you? He’s been dead for two days” Jesus replies, “Martha, do you believe?” …

Write Yourself A Masterpiece

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

You are the Author. WRITE! & then write some more! In ink, blood, scars, life, something that’s permanent, something that retraces your steps. The book on your life- it will rock! Out loud. Backwards. In different languages. The audio tape will pop speakers! We’ll buy new speakers, because it’s that good. It’ll be in the “Religion” section and the “How To” section: An instruction manual, a guide to falling into ditches and being okay, to packing light, never forgetting your breath at home, risking it all, falling harder, faster, finding a better way, a better way in, how to scrape our knees enough so we know how to stand instead …

I Am Whole

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

A chant I have written above my mirror: … I am Whole. I am Everything. I am Complete. I am Perfect. I am as Beautiful as I need to be. I don’t need to be anything I am not. I am not my body, I have a body. … How good it is to Center Down. I have a Good Life.

You Just need to KNOW It.

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Until we know, like REALLY KNOW Until we believe, TRULY BELIEVE In ourselves, in our God(s), in our faith, in our path, in our universe(s), in our truths Until we OWN it We are suffering from “spiritual indigestion” – Reverend Micheal Beckwith Own your power. You have a huge place in this world. A huge stake. When you move the earth shakes. The universe, like water, moves around YOU. Where will you place yourself!?  Everyone wins when you’re in alignment with all things- self, prayer, energy, universe, love, hobbies, faith, hope, worship, trust, forgiveness, health & wellness-body & soul inside & out. You Rock. Start shaking things up. That’s one …

BE an APPLE TREE!!

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

BE Abundance. An apple tree doesn’t get mad or nervous when a human comes to pick its fruit. It knows there’s so many more where that came from. It encourages that world take from it, that’s why it’s there. To spread its gift, not too hang onto anything. That’s why we’re here. To shine and be great and be abundant in all things; to prosper and GIVE. To Share our gifts with the world, freely, without judgement. Every opportunity is an opportunity to speak and BE your truth; your true self. Be the Apple Tree who lives fearless and knows that there is definitely more where that came from! … …

The Curse of “The Secret”

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

No more standing around and waiting for things to come to us. Yes, the universe does work in mysterious ways. Yes, there is a law of attraction, but that does not mean that we can sit back and just wait. We need to take action. “Be the change you wish to become.” Maybe what the universe is giving you is as an opportunity to work, THE opportunity to shine, everywhere and all the time. Maybe this is your gallery, maybe this is your talk show, maybe this is your big break. Maybe while you’ve been looking for things, God, the universe, and everyone else has been saying stop, look, breathe …

Start by Doing

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

This is the only way. Conventional wisdom tells us to wait until we feel like it – at that rate nothing will ever happen. According to the Torah, when Moses stood atop Mount Sinai and presented his people the stone tablets with the Law of Jehovah inscribed upon them, the Hebrews spoke in unison “na’aseh v’nishma,” which means “We will do and we will understand.”  Basically the Hebrews decided that they would live the Law first, in the hope that through living the law they would eventually come to understand it. Virtues don’t come through simply thinking about them. You have to “exercise them.” Aristotle’s promise is this: if you …

Dare To Imagine

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

  Dare to be Silly  Dare to be wrong.  “I can deal with failure, everybody fails at something, but I can’t deal with not trying” – Micheal Jordan Dare to take chances. Dare to rise up and ask for something that was once considered impossible. Dare to be Stand Out. Dare to tear down walls, brick by brick. Dare to place yourself. Dare to Fall. Dare to Trust. Dare to Forgive. Dare to be anything but ordinary. Dare to Shine. Dare to Inspire. Dare to BE. Dare to Allow. Dare to Breathe. Dare to Live. Dare to Try. Dare to Love. Dare to know that with each breath, each step, …

Whose Dream am I Dreaming?

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Asleep, dreaming you’re awake… What dream am I dreaming? Experience vs Reality – Two very different things! We all know that we each experience reality differently. We have all see a hypnotist or magician make someone think they are someone else, make them chase invisible rabbits, etc… Is that reality?? These thoughts played in the mind. What are you experiencing? Lack, separation, fear, judgement, labels, doubt, worry What IS your Reality? Abundance, courage, power, wisdom, strength, creativity, acceptance, forgiveness, trust, peace – it’s all there. That’s REAL LIFE. What a relief! No more needing to get over, you are over. You have arrived. You are great. You are Light. This …

Find Your Breath

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Find your breath. Play your music. Speak your truth. No one can judge your self worth. No one can judge your self worth. No one can judge your self worth. Breathe. With ease.

Release and Forgive from that place. Bring it with you. Let it flow out. So you are not weighed down, share it. Light, effortless, peaceful, powerful, brave, beautiful, and constantly in grace.

Mixed Messages

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

  Does this seem familiar?  Is this a feeling you know all too well?  What are they saying? What are you saying? Why can’t you communicate with anyone, with yourself, with your own thoughts?  Typical reactions to this behavior are confusion, anger, and a willingness to cease communication. Where is the block? Whats happened? You want to build a solid connection and fortify your relationships so that they can be as strong as possible? Relationships to and for self, work, friends, lovers, family, then go back to ONE. Take a breath and start over right NOW. You are not the confusion, and lost and wandering that came before you. You …

I’m A Fool

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

& I’m Weird. & I talk to myself… A Lot. “In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they’re still beautiful.” – Alice Walker, author, poet, activist We all have this deeper darker self that is so far from perfect. We have to embrace it, embrace how necessary it is to our sanity. Because it’s my inner weirdo who has become my creative muse and it’s him who has stormed onto all my expression, all my art- at once despicable and lovable. And yes, he adores donuts (From Randy’s) just a little too much. He is my shadow. He is …
