The Great Awakening is Upon Us

There is a reason this period of time is referred to as the great awakening.

Many people are waking up to the reality that life as it has been presented to us, isn’t actually the reality at all, that we are missing a major component to what life is really about.

We live in a system that works for the benefit of the few; it is a top down system that caters to those at the top, and progressive serves those all the way down the hierarchy with less respect and total distain toward their own existence and plight.

Many cannot complain of this system because most of their creature comforts are looked after in the material world, while many go without the basic necessities or are living in a state of fear that they soon will be without.

This is not about giving to charity, it is about co-creating a framework where we all prosper.

We have been programmed in an era of fear, and that is coming to an end.

Religious, educational/institutional, familiar, societal programming has conditioned us to accept what is not acceptable.

“Be good, or you are going to hell”.

“Get good grades and don’t question your teachers or you will get a failing grade and won’t get a good job”.

“Don’t be too big for your britches”.

The statements that kept members of society playing small are endless. All these statements are symptoms of living in a society where young and old alike were controlled with fear and shame.

People are walking away from this control dynamic in droves. We should be able to live in our own authority, to be sovereign in our own bodies; to be able to be our selves without judgement, or even worse, told who we should be. We are created innately divine and internally wise, yet have been steered away from using our own internal mechanisms. Learning how to go inward to find our true power is an inside job and no one can do it for us, except us, for us.

  • Review your religious beliefs; what does god and spirituality mean to you?

Are your thoughts your own or were they the thoughts others wanted you to believe?

  • What does education mean to you? Does our current education model encourage people to strive their highest potential or does it pump out mediocracy?

Are your beliefs yours or were they indoctrinated into you through the education system?

  • What beliefs did you learn in your family? Were you treated as a valuable member or were you treated with lack of respect and appreciation?

Ask yourself what holds true for you based on your own beliefs.

We all fear change, yet we can not evolve without it. Fear of change creates resistance and resistance creates blocks to the natural flow of life, growth and self development.

Surrender. When you resist change, you are saying no to the flow of life. Say yes to change and let go and make room for the magic to begin.

Simply choose to change and find a life that’s based on love and truth; love and light for we need both. Love without truth is delusional. Truth without love heartless. Do so without guilt or shame about choices you have made in the past.

Look deeper inward where all your answers are waiting for you to ask yourself the right questions. Our answers lie in the questions we ask.

Listen to your inner voice of wisdom to guide your decisions and the changes you make.

Choose a path that brings you more peace, joy, unity and happiness and as you access more of these states of being, share them outward.

All change begins within and life never stops changing, that is the beauty of growth and self discovery.

Once you have discovered the pathway within, you will turn to it with more trust and love in your heart, for you will know it is true for you. Being able to trust your own discernment will develop into more appreciation of yourself.

During this great awakening, life will benefit those who are willing to break free from the programming and living true to themselves.

This is the new reality, the one we are awakening to.

I hope you have enjoyed this message of inspiration.

Can We End Global Loneliness One Knock at a Time?

There was a program re-introduced at a Canadian university where people are supporting each other by knocking on dorm doors and checking to see if the students are okay.

It is that time of year again when too many students are feeling overwhelmed and pressured by life circumstances and this causes individuals to isolate themselves, withdraw from society and more worrisome; harm themselves or consider taking their own lives.

Loneliness  in youth isn’t new, in fact it is more prevalent than we would think. We aren’t meant to go through life alone. Although we live in a time when we are unrestrained by cultural and economic limitations, people seem less happy, disconnected and more lonely than ever which begs the question; “What is going on?”

I know the feelings of loneliness. A few years ago I decided to explore this in more depth and in doing so, realized that although I had reached a certain level of financial success, there was a huge part of me that wasn’t fulfilled on a personal level. That sent me on a personal quest; I have done the research and there are strategies you can use to feel more connected.

Here are the three elements I found to combat loneliness.

  1. Have a purpose that is larger than you. This purpose provides you with a focus that will always guide you as you share who you with the world. And, by looking outside of yourself you will connect with others.
  2. Get in touch with the concept of love again, in particular the concept of self-love. Love is one of the biggest fears we have and not loving ourselves tops the chart. Look for what is right with you over what is wrong, will help you build self-esteem and confidence which is a great way to start to love yourself.
  3. Use your self-love to create environments around you that attract supportive people to you. When you love yourself, you become energized and active which will attract other energized and active people to you.

This is why the knock on door campaign is a great way to check in on each other to ensure students are not in emotional distress. Knowing someone cares can be the connection that a person needs who is feeling low. And, it could be the first step to them understanding that they have a purpose, are appreciated and are loved.

Be the Change You want to see in the World.

 

 

 

 

Everything in life involves change and when we deny change, we resist growth. Living a sedentary lifestyle is not how we were meant to live, and can cause complacency. Nothing stays the same forever; nor should we want it to. Everything has the ability to change. Humans have restricted ourselves to the benefits of change and in some cases humans have been conditioned to fear change.

Change is a constant in life and resisting doesn’t work. You cannot will yourself to stop change any more than you can will yourself to stop growing physically. Willing yourself to stay 3’5” because it was your comfort zone isn’t possible, yet we often try to restrict our emotional and conscious growth. Some things can’t be control and it can be liberating when we stop trying to. What could happen if we stopped trying to resist emotional and conscious growth? If we can’t stop our physical self from changing, why do we think we can stop our emotional and conscious selves from growing and evolving? There is no benefit when we deny ourselves from the experiences that will enrich our lives emotionally and consciously.

Life’s experiences are meant to be fun and are meant to help us grow emotionally and consciously. They are meant to challenge us as we enthusiastically move through life, for without experiencing life, we stagnate. We can all become courageous and reach beyond our comfort zones as we take affirmative action as we change. When you stop changing you retire from life—do it long enough and you can feel yourself decline over time.  Ask yourself how do you want to experience life. Being consciously aware means you feel and are present as you experience life.  Do you want to experience an easy life or do you want to experience meaning? Read More→

The Power of Love

Do we discount the power of love in our relationships?

 

 

 

Love is as important to our psyche as food and water are to our bodies. If this is so, then why are men and women still struggling to get love right? Endless studies have been conducted on the topic of love, but how to love freely still eludes us. What link are we missing in understanding the power of love and why it is so important in our lives?

A major component of our personality is derived from our sexuality. Sharing needs of feeling loved and of feeling significant is a part of experiencing love. The differences in our male and female sexuality was created by nature in a way that was designed to complement each other, to keep things fun and interesting. It’s the differences between the sexes that make us appealing to the other. Instead of celebrating our differences, we keep them under wraps, often criticizing over embracing them.

Assimilating our sexes strips our sexuality from us. When we try to make the opposite sex be more like us, it neutralizes our sexual attraction instead of complementing our natural state of masculine or feminine energy.

If we all behaved like men or women, how long would it take before we are all bored with one another emotionally, intellectually, physically and sexually? Lack of understanding our natural attributes contribute to why we are getting love so wrong. Men and women are lonely, we are yearning for each other, so there is no better time than now to figure this out.

Some of our needs and wants register at the biological level, they are not controlled by our minds, love being one. Love is sourced in our hearts, it is a feeling, not a thought. Thinking about a feeling can leave us confused, especially when we over intellectualize.  How are men and women supposed to get love right if we aren’t versed in our basic love needs, where love is sourced for us, or the patterns of how we communicate with one another?

It is easy is to fall into the trap of focusing on how others impact us, while we neglect to look at how we impact those around us. Too often, when people share stories that involve their spouses, the conversation defaults to how disappointed one is by the other. Treating our relationships with a big dose of negativity can’t be inspiring for anyone. It helps to check in with yourself periodically to see if you are treating your relationship in a negative manner. Looking for what is right with each other instead of focusing on the negative contributes to a more loving world around us.

A short self-test can help you discern how you view both sexes. Create a list of 10 things you admire about men; then list 10 things about women that you absolutely adore. If the list is not easy to create, what can you do to expand your appreciation of both sexes?
