Be the Buddha

Be the Buddha "It is better to travel well than to arrive." - Buddha Chillax, it's all happening.  When you take a moment to take in your life...... OK, maybe you need a few hours, lol.  Anyhoo, take the time to reflect on what's transpired in your life.  Are you at peace with it?  Can you look at all the crap that you've been through and be OK with it? You may feel like you have 'unfinished business' with yourself or someone else.  Life is too short to hang on to ill will, pettiness, or anything that will hold you back.  Holding on is what contributes to physical and mental illness, a bad vibe and unwanted stress.  Are you done yet?! If you'd like to 'travel well' and enjoy your journey, I'd like to share a little Hawaiian prayer I learned a month or so ago.  It's called Ho'oponopono. This ancient Hawaiian practice will bring you calm, solace and peace.  It can be practiced for...

BUST YOUR SHACKLES

BUST YOUR SHACKLES When you come down to it, you've imprisoned yourself for years EVERY TIME YOU SQUASH YOUR THOUGHTS, FEELINGS OR ACTIONS, YOU'RE IMPRISONING YOURSELF.  It is one thing to be kind, considerate and thoughtful.  Quite another to give people what they want to hear at your expense. YOU ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANOTHER PERSON'S FEELINGS.  Are you the type of person who thinks about how every word you say is going to affect someone else?  So much so that you squash your real feelings and words? DON'T GET CHARGED WITH A BUI™   I've termed a BUI™ - Being Under the Influence™.  As we continue to discover and weed out our negative self talk, we want to find out where these thoughts, words and emotions are coming from.  Are they habits developed from your family during early childhood?  A 'gift' from the nuns?  Cultural?  Wherever they came from, let me tell you something...... they're draining! BE YOURSELF - COMPLETELY.  There's a huge freedom in...

Damn! Did I say that?!

Are you even aware of the shit that comes out of your mouth...... the thoughts that pop in your head...... the things you do?  Get with the program!! Now is your time to be noticing all the little things you do, like saying "I'm so stupid", without a second thought.  Is that really what you think of yourself.  Probably not, but you've programmed yourself with these automatic responses, and now they're pretty much like breathing to you. Are you writing this stuff down?!  If not, indulge yourself in this exercise of 'keeping track'.  You will be surprised at what you uncover.  Once you know what you're saying and doing, you'll be able to make some changes.  Check back in to find out how you can begin to make these changes & giving yourself a better message!...

Your Evil Twin

We all have an Evil Twin.  Just when you think you're on the right track, up pops that dark side of you that just wants to fuck with you.  The Evil Twin who holds you hostage and has you squirming in your own shit, causing you to spin out of control with negative overload. So how do you get a grip and start to loosen the grasp?  You become AWARE.  Awareness is the key to change.  The recognition of your evil twin is the very thing that will empower you to get out of your own chaos.  Insert the catch phrase, 'get out of your own way.'  Maybe someone has used that phrase with you before? Every time I hear it or say it, it holds a bittersweet tone.  Probably because I've heard it so many times, lol.  Nowadays, instead of wincing, I offer a chuckle and half hearted smile.  At this point it's better to go with humor.  Seriously, what...

Are you behind the 8 ball?

  Where are you?!   Do you constantly feel like you have to keep up, get up or buck up? Are you getting in your own way? Are you your own worst enemy? Do you say things like “I'm hopeless”, “I'm a failure”, “I'm so stupid”, “___ will never like me”   If you said 'Yes' to even one of those questions or statements, you could be guilty of Negative Self Talk. Consciously or unconsciously, we spit out words that have a 'negative' connotation, and are actually derogatory. It's a constant slip that keeps people spinning out of control and frustrated.   The best way to make any change is Awareness. Raise your level of awareness to how much destructive behavior you elicit on regular basis by noting it! Thoughts, words and action should be counted. You'll be surprised how much shit you talk to yourself, lol. Relate to this post?  Sign up for my email list & stay...
