What’s Driving You?

Drive is important, but it’s more important to figure out exactly what is driving you. Only when you are conscious of this can you make the best decisions possible. How can you tell if your desire is genuine or if ego is running the show?

Ego in charge (ego-driven):

  • You believe your choice will make you look good to others.
  • You are following the expectations of your family/society.
  • You are making your decision based solely on practicality.
  • Your choices feel forced.
  • Intuition is never a factor in your decision making.

When the real you is in charge (soul-driven), there is only one reason you move forward:

  • Because, you must.

You are compelled to move by an innate force which goes beyond surface (and sometimes flawed) logic.

The consequences of your decisions are more likely to be rewarding and long-lasting. The next time you set out to do or experience something, make sure it’s for all the right reasons. Be certain that the real you is in the driver’s seat.

How to Change Your Life

fish-530x312Are you satisfied with your life as it is?

If not, there’s only one place to look. Well…there are several places to look but only one that matters.

Inward.

Your inner journey is the key to your outer experience.

Self-discovery is a turning point. The difference between then & now. (Tweet this.)

If you haven’t bothered to look at something in a new way, your circumstances stay the same. Only a shift in perspective gives you the chance for real change.

Remember, nothing changes until you do.

The Art of Living

loving_life_wIt’s obvious when someone possesses a zest for life. They exude an energy that easily captivates others. When you’re on the other end of the spectrum, that energy is enviable. This is the divide between existing and living.

These people know the secret to art of living and it is simply this:

Stay current. That’s it.

Current has two meanings.

1) Current means flow. Staying current means surrender to the Universal flow.

2) Current means now. Staying current means remain in the present.

This is the essence of soul work.

The difference between existing and living is the infusion of your soul. (tweet this)

In what ways could you add more soulfulness to your days?

Facing What Is

Woman Looking at ReflectionWhat do you do when your present situation isn’t where you want to be?

When things feel misaligned, your instinct may be to fight against it. However, upon closer inspection, fighting the present moment goes against everything that is addressed by conscious living and mindfulness.

Trying to force something into what it is not wastes precious energy. As contradictory as it may seem, your release from the situation is to surrender to it.

We can choose to make the moment useful by extracting lessons from any situation that presents itself. This is where your power lies. Being present informs you of what to do next.

When you fight the moment, you miss the guidance. (Tweet this.)

You reject the wisdom that is being offered to you.

Only when you willingly face it, can you regain your footing and ultimately walk away from it – stronger and wiser. Your growth releases it and it has no other choice than to finally release you.

When Dreams are Realized

45759-Follow-Your-Dreams-They-Know-The-WayPursuing a dream can be scary. Having that dream realized can be even scarier.

It’s easy to think that the grass will be greener on the other side and it some ways it will. However, moving into that new space can be disconcerting. The questions will start to come:

“Can I do this?”
“Am I really ready for this?”
“Am I worthy of this?”

Those are the signs of your armor shattering. Your previous shell must break in order for you to expand. As a result you will feel unprotected when actualizing a dream. But remember this:

The willingness to be vulnerable will carry you to new levels. (Tweet this.)

Walk into it knowing that you are on the right path.

How to Get What You Need

woman-thinking-2-620x310Three steps are between your current state and your desired state. That’s it. Three steps. And, you only have to complete the first two. Here they are:

Ask. Act. Allow.

1. Ask: You must ask the Universe for exactly what you want. No beating around the bush.
2. Act: You must perform the appropriate supporting action. Note, sometimes, the right action is stillness.
3. Allow: Receive the feedback that is being provided.

If the desired result hasn’t manifested, you need to recalibrate. The problem isn’t in the process. It’s in how you perform the three steps.

Block #1: You don’t feel worthy enough to make an outright request.
Block #2: You take no action that is required or take inappropriate action.
Block #3: You don’t  receive what comes back to you because it isn’t in the form you expected.

Forgot one thing; let your intuition guide all three steps. This is the only way this works.

The Universe is having a constant conversation with you. Ego can not be at the helm. Remember, you attract the lessons you need more than the thing your ego wants. To yield the optimal results, you have to listen to the voice of your soul. That’s what intuition is.

If you aren’t getting what you think you want, make sure you’re listening to the right voice. Then, repeat the process as necessary.
