Are You Feeling Energized Today?

Monday, January 26th, 2009

How is your energy level? If your answer is zero, and you feel run down and worn out, it may be time to recharge your batteries. Vitamins and extra rest and relaxation may be all that you need. However, if you are willing to delve deeper, you might discover an underlying cause for your exhaustion.

If you are willing to take an honest look at why you are feeling this way, you may find that a thought or belief or a relationship is not in alignment with who you truly are. There may also be people in your life that are draining your energy. Once you figure out the root cause of these feelings you can weed them out and redirect your energy toward things that uplift you and help you to feel more vibrant.

Try to follow your head and your heart’s direction. Honor yourself in all that you do and in all situations. Make meditation a part of your daily practice to get the clarity you need in all of life situations..

Your Goals

Monday, January 26th, 2009

Do you feel stuck in a rut? Do you feel that you are stagnating? Remember that your goals are your dreams that you are willing to work for. Choose wholeheartedly to devote yourself to your aspirations. Take ministeps in that direction each day.

When you decide to persue your goals, your choices and your actions speak loudly to you daily. Putting your goals in words and speaking your intention often will remind you of your purpose and help you to stay on track. As you make daily progress give yourself a reward for your efforts.

Remember when you create your goals you also create your future. When you choose from your head and your heart you take the first step in creating what you want in your own destiny. Everytime that you acheive another goal you are creating your own wishes for yourself.

Decision Making

Monday, January 26th, 2009

For some of you making a decision is a difficult procedure. Many of you feel like a pressure cooker before you make a decision. Always know that you can relieve the pressured feeling by using deep diaphragmatic breathing.

Think of the decision process as analogous to a great recipe. You can allow yourself to marinade in the juices of your own understanding while you add your own spices of intuition and any other considerations that are necessary to making a thoughtful decision. You might want to visualize the various scenarios and decide which one makes you feel the best during this time. You might want to remind yourself of your goals or even sit silently in meditation for proper guidance. Any of these techniques can add flavor to your recipe of decisions.

When you allow yourself the time to let understanding come in , you can cocreate the best decision possible for you and everyone involved…

You Deserve A Break Today

Sunday, January 25th, 2009

Sometimes you may find yourself getting all wrapped up in daily concerns and problems that you find yourself going round and round in activities and not really accomplishing much. You may also be feeling some physical signals that are a message to you to slow down and take a break! You may be so involved in things that are external that you overlook what is going on inside of you..It is that very time that you need to step back from the very things that are occupying your time and take time to connect to your inner self and heal…

It may seem to you that taking a break is not very productive.. But try to realize that a healthy period of rest is the best medicine for you to give you a true sense of your unlimited potential. Take a walk in nature and do some yoga poses and meditate and let go of your worries.. These acts bring you back to the things that are truly and honestly essential such as your sense of oneness with the universe, as well as your inner peace and well being.. As you do this you will be able to put problems into their proper perspective and you will concentrate on what is really important and meaningful in your life. You will encounter all situations with a much more healthier outlook.

Giving yourself a respite from daily concerns is giving yourself a wonderful gift.
As you step away from the problems that saturate your thoughts, you lessen the burden you may be carrying. You also become more receptive to the positive answers that the universe is offering to you.

Connect With Nature

Sunday, January 25th, 2009

Did you ever pick up a beautiful leaf and hold it in your hands and study it? It is indeed a spiritual experience to hold it in your hands and study the veins on it and the shape and color of nature’s mystery. This leaf represents just one of the miracles of nature and the beautiful natural art that you can connect with. As you contemplate this beautiful part of nature,you will realize that this leaf is one part of the system that harnesses the energy of the sun and brings into being the oxygen that many living things rely on to live.

This marvelous leaf transforms the elements of ; sunlight, carbon dioxide, and rain into nourishment for the tree. This weightless piece of nature is a conduit to the branch that is also the conduit to the trunk and ultimately the conduit to the roots of the tree. The roots in turn draw nourishment from the earth to feed the trunk , branches and leaves of the tree. You as a living being inhales the oxygen that comes from the process and exhales the carbon dioxide from which the tree is fed. It is hard to understand where one cycle begins and another ends.

This example of nature shows the interdepence between you and nature. Explore and enjoy the beauty of nature and respect it and realize the interdepence between you and all living things. Caring for your plants and trees and appreciating their beauty is connecting to all that is wonderful and beautiful. Go out into nature and care for your environment with respect and awe!!

If you can choose to spend your time with uplifting people or people that you do not resonate with,who would you choose to spend time with?? You know that answer. You would choose to spend time with those you feel most comfortable with. However, from a deep spiritual perspective learning to spend time with those who are annoying teaches you a great deal about yourself.However good you think you are about controlling your environment there is always something or someone that you cannot control. Remaining centered in these situations is a very empowering learning activity for you. When being comfronted with a situation or person that irritates you and choosing not to react, you will know that you have made progress spiritually.
When you are in the presence of someone that you find annoying you have the power to develop the qualities of patience, tolerance and acceptance. You also have the right to limit these experiences in accordance with your growing comfort level and spiritual growth.

Try to spend some time with your true friends. Speak in gratitude for the blessings that they share with you as well as the confidences that they allow you to hear. Enjoy the sense of enchantment that you feel as you spend time with them. Think about how blessed you are to be connected with them in sharing the joys and wonders and sometimes the sorrows that they have had to endure. Stay in the moment with your friends as they will often lighten your mood, and bring happiness and good spirits your way.

Open Up Your Mind

Monday, January 19th, 2009

Today is a good day to expand your goals. One of the best ways for you to do this is to broaden your perceptions of what is possible for you. Try to approach every new experience with optimism in yourself. By doing this you will help to create more positive experiences in every situation you encounter.

By opening up your thinking with a positive outlook you are opening up the possibilities of making your dreams a reality. By being willing to stretch your circumstances, you create more beneficial outcomes. At the same time you learn to let go of preconceived notions that are not working for you. You adopt a new attitude of optimism in all settings that you encounter.This helps to attract more opportunities for growth and success. By opening up your mind and just considering the new and unusual in your life you welcome new possibilities for fulfillment.
