Quick Inspiration Tricks When You've Lost Your MOJO

Quick Inspiration Tricks When You've Lost Your MOJO

A factory outputs identical pieces of plastic merchandise, no matter what. But you are “operationally challenged” –for you are made of conscious bold choices, moods, and miracles.

A mechanical life requires output, form, and results measured down to the chin hair of the decimal point. An organic life is natural. It’s blemished and mythic. You will not endlessly “produce” without having awakening times of getting to know yourself again and again– and working with riotous forces. . You will not endlessly “produce” without having awakening times of getting to know yourself again and again– and working with riotous forces.

Mark Nepo's Weekly Reflection: The Life After Tears

Mark Nepo's Weekly Reflection: The Life  After Tears

In the life before tears,
there are endless plans
and we avoid the difficult
feelings at all cost, as if grief,
pain, and loss are canyons
we’ll never climb out of.


But, then, one day, while
not looking, someone dear
dies, or a dream breaks like
a plate, and our world, as
we’ve known it, is blown
apart.


Then, we discover that
falling in the canyon is
our initiation, and
the river at the bottom
is the only water that
will keep us alive.


I wish it were different.
But the reward for being
hollowed out is that the
song then sings us.

How To Let Go and Get What You Truly Need

How To Let Go and Get What You Truly Need

The art of a fulfilled life is the art of "letting'':
letting in, letting out, letting go. - Ernst Ferstl


My whole life, I craved love and perfection. The stakes were so high that I find it hard to relax.  I need to do it all. But it's not easy to carry this heavyweight upon me. Always worrying about love, career, or health. Doubting my own self-worth, ability, and strength. Choosing the wrong people to fall in love with always confirmed they were right about me. I was not worthy of their love and attention. I talk too much, I am too loud, I take too much space. On a career level, I doubted, too. Am I good enough? My dream was to become an artist. I wanted to sing, act, model, and write. Do I sound well, do I overact, am I pretty enough, do people like my writings?

Trains, Planes & Soul Guidance

Trains, Planes & Soul Guidance - John Holland

As the passage mentioned: “Like a passenger riding a train, you have the choice to get on and off, find new routes, pick new places to visit, or just stop and enjoy the view for a while. Perhaps, you like to move quickly through life as if you were an express train. Or maybe, like a commuter passenger, you like taking the same routes over and over again. You may even stop just riding along and choose a different direction you’d like your life to take.”

Sometimes there are so many choices on our plates that we get caught up in the chaos and let stress and anxiety take over.  Which route is best for me? Which way do I turn? How far do I go? Which stop will get me to where I want to be? Will I be satisfied going this way or that? Before we know it, we get stuck in one spot and we’re afraid to move forward. It’s like watching the confusing timetable of endless trains or planes coming and going here, there and everywhere, and we’d rather sit in the terminal and hide our heads!

What is Self Discipline? 7 Ways to Develop It

What is Self Discipline? 7 Ways to Develop It

Do you know what sets highly successful people apart from the people who never achieve their goals in life?

And that, my friend, takes self-discipline. 

Today I’m going to share my top tips on how to build self-discipline and cultivate the unstoppable persistence and resilience you need to achieve ambitious goals.

How To Embrace Change Without Anxiety

How To Embrace Change Without Anxiety - Deepak Chopra, MD.

The messages that society sends about change are two-edged. On one side is the marketing strategy that uses new and improved to spark sales. On the other hand are life insurance companies selling financial security in old age. You can divide almost anything between those two messages, the allure of change and the anxiety it arouses. 

Everyone feels the pull of these two forces, and in anxious times, what looms larger is fear of change. But human beings are designed to embrace change, because we are the only creatures who can choose a creative life. A cat is content to eat, sleep, and lie in the sun. It was designed to be a creature of instinct, and very little free choice is allowed.

How to Own Your Value and Worth

How to Own Your Value and Worth - Julie Murphy

To begin to manifest what we desire and go after creating what we want to create, the biggest barrier is not a lack of intelligence, commitment or motivation, but usually, a subconscious lack of self worth and belief in ourselves. I’ve experienced this personally and with many private clients that I’ve worked with. 

We have so much inner resistance to the change we want to call into our life that the things we manifest become a reflection of the doubt, fear and worry that resides inside of us. 

When you know your worth, this is when you will see profound changes in your life and can make those quantum leaps in reaching your goals. In this article today, I’ll look at some of the steps you can take to own your value and worth and go after your dreams!

Be the New You that Sees the Moment As It Is

Be the New You that Sees the Moment As It Is  - Guy Finley

Before we can experience the truth of a higher state of consciousness, before we can stand on the ground of ourselves that is the secret stuff of Reality, we are asked to quietly be who and what we are in the Now.  

To do this we must learn to let go of those parts of our present nature that are never quite pleased with what is. After all, doesn’t it seem that we are always in some sort of a struggle to change whatever or whoever it may be before us that misses the mark?

Aboriginal Culture and Experience on The Great Ocean Road

Aboriginal Culture and Experience on The Great Ocean Road

The traditional territory of the Wadawurrung and Eastern Maar peoples is traversed by the Great Ocean Road. Before the arrival of Europeans, their predecessors lived in this region for at least 40,000 years.

The entrance of British colonists had a disastrous effect on the indigenous populations due to conflicts, land removal, and the introduction of a new way of life. Thankfully, nowadays, all of Victoria's Aboriginal cultural landmarks and artifacts are now legally protected.

Through The Great Ocean Road, you may experience the remnants of the Aboriginal culture in all its glory. Visit the cultural centers and the glorious natural sights. The foods are also something to write home about. Read on to find out more.

It Will Take All Of Us

Maria Shirver's Sunday Paper- It Will Take All of Us
“One can not reflect in streaming water. Only those who know internal peace can give it to others.”  —Lao Tzu


I've Been Thinking...

The people came to Washington DC to testify this past week. They testified about fearing for their lives in our nation’s classrooms. They testified about what they endured while defending our nation’s democracy. They testified about loss, the need for gun reform, and dishonesty in our elections process. They came to Washington with pleas for hope. They put their lives on the line to testify about not just what they endured and experienced, but also what they felt in those harrowing moments and still feel today.

How Rationality Hides The Truth

How Rationality Hides The Truth - Deepak Chopra, MD

Rationality is the most ingenious invention ever devised by the human mind for extracting order out of chaos. As raw experience, the physical world is chaos soup. We are bombarded by billons of perceptual bits every minute—the retina at the back of your eye alone receives trillions of photons a minute. Chaos is totally disorderly and disorganized. It makes no sense; therefore, the world makes no sense unless something steps in to organize things so that everyday life doesn’t feel like a storm-tossed ship.

Reason did the trick. You can gaze out your window and see trees, sky, buildings, and other people, giving each a name. You can hone your reason, go to graduate school, and become an expert in botany so that you know everything about trees or architecture so that you can build a house or skyscraper. The modern world has been engineered by the rational mind. So what could go wrong?

The Miracle of Physicality

The Miracle of Physicality - Neale Donald Walsch

Today I’d like to take a look at “the miracle of physicality.” If we really are “all one” (and we are), what IS this One Thing that becomes physical?

The other day I was doing some re-reading in one of the powerful books in the Conversations with God oeuvre, titled “When Everything Changes, Change Everything,” and I happened upon a passage that neatly explained this question. It said that more and more we are coming to understand that we are something other than the body, other than the mind, and yes, even other than the soul. We are all three combined, and “the Whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”

The Law of Thinking: What Is It and How Does It Work?

The Law of Thinking: What Is It and How Does It Work?

“The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.” – Plutarch


As you read this post, you have thoughts in your head. You can’t not think. It’s a constant state of being.

When you’re doing dishes, driving to the store, taking a shower, or head down working in absolute concentration, you are thinking. You are thinking at all moments of your life.

I often tell people to notice what they are noticing. It’s a Brave Thinking® tool used to manifest the life you would love. If you take charge over your thoughts, you will be able to make your reality equal to your dream.

Have you ever had someone ask you what you were thinking? And the surprise of the question threw you off guard?

Sometimes you didn’t know what you were thinking.

Holding the Space for Humanity

Holding the Space for Humanity - Panache Desai

When you die, the infinite takes whatever form you need it to take for you, a form you can accept and embrace. In my book Discovering Your Soul Signature, I said that if God is infinite, then everybody is right because the Infinite, the formless, takes the form that you love in order to greet you, meet you and welcome you back into infinity. 

This is also true with people who are alive. For example, the infinite takes the form of a person or maybe the infinite has taken the form of all of us for the same reason. The form makes the potential accessible. Everything that is unfolding has to unfold through everyone of us. We are here to hold the space for humanity.
