Building Circuits: Awakening Through A Vibrational Frequency

atom-abstract-scientific-background-picture-id934061146 Building Circuits: Awakening Through A Vibrational Frequency

If you’ve ever attended my Energy Codes® coursework, watched a video of mine or heard me on an interview, you’ve probably heard me mention, “building circuits” more than a few times. I speak about circuits and building circuits frequently for this reason: the amount of energetic circuits we create in our body is the key to living an expansive and magnificent life.

But what are circuits exactly, and why do we need to build them?

Building Circuitry from the Authentic Self

When we come into this world, we are born with a certain amount of circuitry in place that affects our experience of this world.

Based on our unique circuitry present when we are born, we begin to develop a particular, and often times limited, way of interacting with everything and everyone around us. Our innate responses to life and others – whether it be parents, teachers, bosses or friends - are all based upon the circuitry established in our system from an early age. It’s as if the specific set of circuitry present in our system determines how we see and react to the world, which then reinforces those same beliefs and experiences, thereby strengthening the existing circuitry.

Grow Inner Strengths

innerstrength Grow Inner Strengths

What would make a difference inside you?
The Practice: 
Grow Inner Strengths.
Why?

I’ve hiked a lot and have often had to depend on what was in my pack. Inner strengths are the supplies you’ve got in your pack as you make your way down the twisting and often hard road of life. They include a positive mood, common sense, integrity, inner peace, determination, and a warm heart. Researchers have identified other strengths as well, such as self-compassion, secure attachment, emotional intelligence, learned optimism, the relaxation response, self-esteem, distress tolerance, self-regulation, resilience, and executive functions. I’m using the word strength broadly to include positive feelings such as calm, contentment, and caring, as well as skills, useful perspectives and inclinations, and embodied qualities such as vitality or relaxation. Unlike fleeting mental states, inner strengths are stable traits, an enduring source of well-being, wise and effective action, and contributions to others.

What a Beautiful Life

beautifullife What a Beautiful Life

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style.” — Maya Angelou

My friend Clay wrote me the other day to tell me about a book he’s reading. It’s called Seven Ages of Paris, and in it, the French writer Colette is quoted as having said the following just before she died in 1954:

“What a beautiful life I’ve had. It’s a pity I didn’t notice it sooner.”

That quote landed on me like a thud. I hope you’ll stop and absorb it, too. Make a silent vow to not be Colette, like I did.

Now, to be honest, I’ve been in Colette’s heels before. When I was younger, I was constantly running through life as I juggled work, my children, my parents and all the other obligations coming my way. My to-do list was pages’ long, and it was all of my own making. I wasn’t noticing anything along the way because I was just trying to get everything done and start all over again.

Thank God I came to my senses.

Completing the Circle

heather-shevlin-jomtL-cBB-E-unsplash-1024x768 Completing the Circle

My family is in the final stages of relocating to Arizona from Alaska. We will be in sunny Arizona 10 months of the year, and enjoying Alaska’s cool summers two months of the year. We frequently use air travel into and out of Alaska . This time I wanted to experience a longer journey out, maybe even savor the experience of leaving Alaska. Entering or exiting the 49th state has two unique options during the summer months. We can drive the Alaska highway system into Canada and then into the lower 48 states, or use the ferry system. Both are about 4 or 5 days of continues travel.

A friend graciously accompanied me on the ferry. We drove my car, that was packed full of photographs and other treasures, onto the ferry just before midnight on Monday. Both of us had sleeping bags, food and Dramamine. Our sleeping arrangements included chaise lounges, minus the cushions and sleeping bags. We felt lucky to score two of the lounges. It took us a short amount of time to find where we wanted to camp for 4 and a half days.

3 Stepping Stones to Better Habits

woman-in-lotus-position-meditating-on-the-rooftop-picture-id624671100 3 Stepping Stones to Better Habits

How many things do you do every day without even really thinking about it?

It’s so easy to walk up to the counter at the coffee shop and order a pastry to go with that highly sweetened coffee. Or, to flop onto the couch when you get home instead of taking a detour toward the rowing machine.

The power of habit can feel nearly unbreakable and it can feel incredibly hard to form better habits.

Our habits are patterns that provide comfort and familiarity.

But, I don’t have to tell you that not all of our habits are beneficial to us. Some of our habits leave us with problems like expanding debt or expanding waistlines.

Others can keep us in a holding pattern where we want to improve ourselves in many ways, but never get around to putting them into action because we’ve created bad habits.

Researchers who’ve looked at habits and patterns of behavior say that it can take 60 days or more to get rid of an old habit and get a new one to stick.

From Anxiety to Personal Power: A Quantum Flip Perspective

young-woman-stands-on-boulder-holds-blanket-in-the-air-picture-id521996604 From Anxiety to Personal Power: A Quantum Flip Perspective

Heart racing; sweaty palms; shortness of breath and a knot in your stomach the size of a grapefruit. If you’ve experienced these sensations in your body, you’re most likely one of the millions who have been affected by anxiety disorder.

In our fast-paced society, anxiety affects a staggering number of adults. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, an estimated 40 million adults in the United States are affected by anxiety alone. Approximately 65% of North Americans take prescription medication daily to help offset the disorder and of those, a reported 43% take mood altering prescriptions regularly.

Less Is More

the-statue-of-liberty-picture-id984229164 Less Is More

“I have spent my whole life judging the distance between American reality and the American dream.” — Bruce Springsteen

The other night, I was having dinner with a friend when she said something that really struck me.

She said: “I just want less. Less stuff. Less to worry about. Less to do. Less of everything, really. I’d be willing to give up a lot just to get less.”

I couldn’t stop thinking about her words as I walked back to my hotel that night.

As we head into our nation’s birthday, this concept of “less is more” is very much on my mind. What do we need to feel peaceful, joyful and happy? Do we need more, or do we need less? Perhaps we already have enough, and should instead focus on giving more to others.

I know I share my friend’s feeling that less is more. I want less, too. I want less of what keeps me from getting closer to what my heart and soul crave. I want less of what robs me from getting more of what really matters.

Now when I say “more,” I don’t mean more stuff. I’m wise enough these days to know that stuff doesn’t bring happiness. I’m also wise enough to know that busyness doesn’t bring peace and that outward success doesn’t bring joy.

True happiness, peace and joy come from spending time in connection with those you love and care about, and one of those people in my life is my friend Eddie.

Every time I’m in New York for The Today Show, Eddie is the one who picks me up in in the wee hours of the morning and drives me to work. He doesn’t just pick me up in his car, though. He also picks me up in life. Eddie is a hard-working man who loves his wife, loves his family, loves his job and—guess what?—also loves me.

8 Ways to Create an Abundant Mindset Insights

bucket-with-ripe-apples-in-sunset-garden-picture-id518833646 8 Ways to Create an Abundant Mindset Insights

Did you know that you live in an abundant universe where prosperity and wealth are your birthright? Well, you do! In my Weekly Oracle Card Guidance and Lesson, the cards show us that we are looking at prosperity in a big way this week. 

I know it’s sometimes hard to see the abundance in our lives, especially in today’s changing world where few of us have been untouched by economic concerns. But, even during tough times, we still have everything we need and more. In fact, prosperity can be ours no matter what’s going on in our lives and around us. It’s all a matter of the thoughts, feelings, and beliefs we CHOOSE to live by. 

There’s no doubt that we’re living in times of unprecedented transformation, challenge, and opportunity. Both on a personal and global level, we’re being called to higher consciousness. As part of this metamorphosis, each of us is being invited to redefine what wealth and prosperity mean in our lives. 

Many of us have tended to view terms such as wealthrich, and prosperous as something outside of us that which we’ll eventually experience when we finally get more than what we have now. But, the truth is, wealth starts from WITHIN us! Prosperity isn’t about what you have; it’s a state of mind and being. It’s what you value, the thoughts you think, and the beliefs that you hold, that determine the riches in your life.

Mark Nepo's Weekly Reflection: Speechless

summertree Mark Nepo's Weekly Reflection: Speechless

I pause under that summer tree, the one that feels like a friend, as my dog wonders why we’ve stopped. She was trotting in such rhythm. But when this still, I wonder what part of me, way down, remains untouched by dream or memory? What drop of being remains out of reach of the opinions of others? When up close, each thing reveals its shimmer. And it’s the unexpected closeness that holds everything together. The light spreads across my dog’s face, her eyes so devoted to wherever I want to go. Can I be this devoted to the pull of life? Last month, I saw a dolphin and her calf slip back into the surf, and the pucker of the sea where they went under said, This is what it feels like to shimmer and go speechless. There’s a closeness we recognize in everything simple, as if we knew everything at the moment of our birth, and living is how we remember it all, piece by broken piece. It can happen when I stop to pick up what you drop in the supermarket. As your eyes shimmer, I realize we’ve known each other forever, though we just met.

Take Yourself Out of Harm's Way

driving Take Yourself Out of Harm's Way

Imagine for a moment you're driving home from work, and that you've just come from having a pretty rough day. As you drive along, your eyes see the road before you, but your mind is in the past. It's very busy re-running all of the day's unpleasant events.

Over and over again, you feel that painful stab of some thoughtless remark someone cruelly blurted out, or the embarrassment of that stupid comment you made without thinking. And with each mental replay of this unpleasant scene, you go deeper and deeper into thought, desperately trying to find a way to escape what seems an intolerable situation.

But what you don't see happening to you is that the more you think, the more you sink! Exactly the opposite of what you think you're accomplishing. And the deeper you sink in thought, the less you're able to see what the rest of you is doing.

Driving recklessly, speeding, missing the exit you want -- these, and other equally dangerous stunts, are only a few of the foolish things that happen to you while driving under the influence of a stream of self-compromising, self-wrecking thoughts.

Your life, in moments such as these, is actually out of your hands. It belongs to your thinking, to an undeveloped nature that doesn't understand what it's doing to itself, or to you, as it struggles to find a way out from under the weight of its own unconscious actions.

Are You Tied to a Financial Lead Balloon?

passenger-airplane-flying-above-clouds-during-sunset-picture-id155439315 Are You Tied to a Financial Lead Balloon?

A dear friend of mine, Susan, said to me, “Julie, I sold my house and I bought my freedom!” We are taught to believe that buying a house is the American Dream, and for many of us, it may very well be.  But, if you face the monthly stress of a home mortgage you can’t really afford, you’re holding the string of a financial lead balloon. Financial lead balloons are items we purchase that look good on the outside, but in reality, they weigh us down and rob us of our personal and financial freedom.

Why do we make these choices? Because there is always Emotion Behind Money. What we do is driven by how we feel, both consciously and unconsciously. When we open ourselves to these emotions and take control, we can heal our financial past and move toward building real wealth. If you aren’t where you want to be, financially, personally, or otherwise, you need to forgive yourself for where you’re at. When you forgive yourself, you create space for the new to come in. And, when the new comes in, it will often surprise the heck out of you!

Take Yourself to a Higher, Happier Life Level

serenemountain Take Yourself to a Higher, Happier Life Level

Human beings are a unique creation in the cosmic scheme of things. Unlike the untold billions of other life forms teaming on the Earth -- whose nature is an open and shut case -- human nature is not fixed. What does this mean to you? Only everything!

The tiger, the horse, and the bird
must express their nature. They have no real choice. And even though they may be free to choose which part of the jungle, or open range, in which they want to feed and roam, these animals have no choice as to the kind of world in which they must dwell.

The tiger can't choose to live above the jungle floor any more than a shark can decide to soar through blue skies. The tiger, horse, bird, and shark must live
where they do because of what they are. Try to see this deeply.

The tiger's nature determines its life. And that life is
a part of the jungle floor. They are inseparable. The tiger's nature and its life level is one thing. The tiger's life level determines the world it must inhabit. Its nature and life level are as fixed as its stripes.

But your nature is not fixed. This is spiritual fact. And now you must turn this powerful fact into your discovery and personal experience.

3 Ways To Be Here Now

beherenow 3 Ways To Be Here Now

We all spend far too much time “in our heads”. Imagine the freedom that comes with learning to quiet the incessant chatter of yesterday and tomorrow, and just live calmly with today – the here and now.

You can truly learn to be present in any situation. As a matter of fact, it can help you with many of your day to day stresses. The reason for this is because so much of our stress lies in NOT being present in the moment.

The power of the present is enormous and endless. So, too, is the power that being in the present has to change the focus of our lives from worry and regret to gratitude and love! And being present in the moment is so much simpler than you may have been led to believe.

Here are three of the techniques that I use daily to help me harness the power of the present:

1) Learn to Savor Your Life– What do you think of when you think of savoring something? To savor is to slow down, sensually observe, and enjoy each moment. At first, try savoring a bite of your favorite food. As you take the bite off your spoon or fork, smell it’s wonderful aroma. Allow the flavors to linger on your tongue. Notice how it feels in your mouth. This is in deep contrast to how we tend to eat quickly, barely even noticing what it is we’re consuming, isn’t it? You can learn to savor just about anything, or any experience, and it is one of the most powerful ways to be present.

Is Someone Else Carrying the Keys to Your Happiness?

cute-small-keyholder-dog-looking-back-picture-id514633375 Is Someone Else Carrying the Keys to Your Happiness?

Hi Dear One,

The most critical variable in whether or not we experience happiness is not our external circumstances but our internal state — our state of mind.Is someone else carrying the keys to your happiness?

Think about that for a moment…

Our state of mind determines our emotions, which in turn determines whether we respond creatively to external conditions or whether we react in the same old, less than optimal, habitual patterns.

What does that mean?

It means that when you master the art of living in a high frequency state, it becomes harder for others to push your buttons.

You become neutral and stop taking offense to things that would normally drive you crazy and make you react negatively.

As a result… you feel better… happier… more at peace.

As energetic beings we are constantly vibrating at various frequencies.

The Secret to A Miracle Mindset – Three Steps to Love Life

yoga-pose-picture-id475855444 The Secret to A Miracle Mindset – Three Steps to Love Life

This morning I woke up and meditated, hand on heart, waiting for that click that I know will turn on my miracle mindset. Sometimes that’s not the case and I don’t wake up loving my life. When that happens it’s a call to action! I need to make a change-clean house, start again. And, once I get back in the zone of wonder, to keep the “love engine” oiled and running I need to redo those steps again and again.

So how do you get to that miracle mindset? Where do you start, how do you get there and what do you change when you’re not really sure?

Sometimes the change is internal, about perspective and perception, sometimes it’s environmental, about the state of your surroundings and its effect on you, and other times it’s about the act of dropping resistance and surrendering to what is to be liberated from judgment so your heart can open wide. I know when I’m in love with my life I’m automatically aligned with a miracle mindset and then anything becomes possible.

5 Traits of Those Who've Harnessed Their Unlimited Potential

infinitepotential 5 Traits of Those Who've Harnessed Their Unlimited Potential

Do you ever wonder why some people seem to truly “have it all”? Not in the material sense (but maybe in the material sense, too!) but those around you who seem healthy, happy, peaceful, and fulfilled? Do you wonder how you, too, can realize and achieve your own limitless potential?

There are specific traits that these seemingly magical people tend to exhibit – but in all honesty, it’s not magic! People who are tapping into their true potential have simply realized that it’s how you approach life that matters.
