5 Thoughts That Are Dragging You Down

Avatar

on

Is anyone else feeling it? It seems like there is this build up of energy on our planet at this time, more so than ever before. Everyone I talk to is sorting through personal challenges and forced to look at their egos -myself included! We are literally being pushed to the max so we can let go of the thought patterns and limiting beliefs that weigh us down. Intense, yet beautiful times!

Solar Flares

Cosmically speaking, even the sun is currently blasting a powerful solar storm at Earth. What does that have to do with anything? Well, considering the fact that we are all made of energy, high vibrating cosmic energies affect us. They bring to the surface any lower density energies that dwell within us and our planet, which explains why so much is coming to the surface at a very rapid pace. I am not much of an astrologer but we also have the mercury retrograde going on, which is apparently masterful at pushing us to go inwards.

That being said, if you feel you are going crazy, are experiencing heavy emotions, feel confused or think you are alone experiencing all of this, well YOU ARE NOT ALONE. The key is to understand that it is not a “bad” thing, nor is it a random occurrence. We are going through a major evolutionary leap of consciousness on our planet, and freeing ourselves from our own mental shackles is a huge part of it. Actually, it’s the whole point! Because it is only then that we will be able to reflect and create a more harmonious world.

This entire process has allowed me to observe some of the ways we let our egos take over and limit our ability to feel free and at peace within ourselves. Here is a list of 5 thoughts that once released, will bring us to a whole new level of freedom!

1. I am More/Less, Worthy/Worthless, Better/Worse…

Ah the belief in our separation from our Source. If you have looked into the fundamental nature of our reality through quantum physics or spirituality, you probably know -at least intellectually -that we are all one and equal at our core. So why do we often feel so separate? For a very good reason actually: so we can have the experience of separation. Much like it’s more fun to play a video game than it is to stare at the CD, it is more enriching for the source of life to project itself into many forms. But along with the belief in our separation from source came a boat load of illusory perceptions including feelings of inferiority or superiority.

We are now pushed to let go of the thoughts in our minds that put so much effort into feeling better (or worse) about ourselves through comparison, appearances, what we do externally etc. When we can truly see how this effort stems from us feeling separate and inadequate as we already are, we can then recognize it as an illusion and let it go.

Separation isn’t real. Scientifically; it isn’t true. Spiritually; it isn’t true. Experientially; it pulls us away from feeling whole and at peace from being truly who we are. It blocks our natural desire to share our gifts with the world by making it into a personal loss or gain game. Imagine the freedom in letting ourselves be who we truly are with no second thought or idea that one must chase after self-worth. Now feel it! This is our true essence.

“Deep down inside the shy person or this person who is suffering from this sense of inferiority, there’s the desire, the unexpressed desire to be superior. And inside the person who acts superior who seems to have a big confident ego, is always the hidden fear that he might be inferior. And his whole acting out is to compensate for that hidden fear of being inferior.” – Eckhart Tolle

[accordion title=”Exercise: Meditative Visualization”]

Here is a meditative visualization I have guided myself through that assisted me in feeling the difference between feeling either bigger/smaller versus simply being complete and one with all of existence.

Oneness1. Be in a comfortable position, close your eyes and deeply connect to the movement and sensation of your breath.

2. Once you feel more relaxed, visualize yourself as this puzzle piece amongst other puzzle pieces that all make up a sphere.

3. Now try to push against other pieces to make yourself bigger. Notice the effort in trying to squeeze yourself out of the whole.

4. Now make yourself feel smaller and inferior, picture your puzzle piece deflating and sinking in. Notice how it disconnects you from the whole.

5. Take a deep breath, and simply let yourself be who you already are. If you experience fear or discomfort in the process of letting yourself be, simply feel it out without resistance and allow the emotions to come and go.

6. Once you have let yourself rest as you are amongst the whole, see how your unique piece of the puzzle already fits perfectly. Feel the completion that is experienced once you allow yourself to be as you are. Feel how in this natural and effortless state, you are one with everything, with every piece of existence. You become the sphere, experiencing itself as a unique piece of the puzzle!

7. Ask yourself: Does comparison, feelings of jealousy, inferiority or superiority resonate any longer when seeing life from the perspective of oneness?

In my experience, I feel nothing but love for everyone when I let the illusions of separation fade. We are all on our own unique learning journeys and not one is better than the other! (Click Here to Listen to a Talk and Clearing Process on “Judgment & Comparison”)

[/accordion]

2. The Truth is “Out There”

I need my guru! I rely on the news to know what to feel/believe about world events. The only way for me to gain knowledge is by reading what “knowledgable” people have to say! 

The tendency to always seek out for knowledge instead of reaching in; that’s one worth letting go of. There is great information out there, no doubt about that! And there is also misleading information. But this doesn’t matter as much as developing trust in our own intuition about the information we are exposed to.

For us to be able to see clearly and not have anything interfere with how we process information, we need to let go of the interference! That includes fears, prejudices, judgmental thoughts, self-doubt and how we tend to let emotional reactions take over our ability to observe from a neutral state. I understand the passion for finding truth, but in my own experience, I have found that the most important thing was weeding out every fear-based belief and reaction that came in between me and my ability to simply OBSERVE and FEEL what rings true to me.

“The truth about life and lie about life is not measured by others but by your intuition, which never lies.” – Santosh Kalwar

3. I Am Not “On Purpose”, I Must Find “My Purpose”

Be YouWe do have a purpose, and we’re in it right now! What I mean by that, is that purpose isn’t a destination, it is the very thing we came on this planet to do: experience, learn, play, evolve, create… and whether we are consciously aware of it or not; that’s what we are always doing! Our purpose isn’t a goal, it is an ongoing process. Every moment we are in is purposeful, because within it lies the possibility -or should I say inevitability to 1.Experience life 2.Grow and 3.Continue the unfoldment of our journey.

Sure, it is possible to hit stagnant periods in our lives. But even those are purposeful since the feeling of stagnancy is here to make us aware of whatever it is we are holding on to that is keeping us from moving fluidly and peacefully through our journey.

“But I want to accomplish something grand with my life! I want to make an impact, I want to follow my passion…” This is all noble and good, but first and foremost, we need to observe whether or not those statements come from a feeling of inadequateness or feeling that we are not where we should be in this very moment. Because we are! Once we let go of all of the extra thoughts, rigid expectations and judgments that cloud our natural state of completeness, there will be nothing stopping us from sharing our gifts to the world. From this effortless state of being, it will happen naturally. And no, it doesn’t need to “look a certain way” : )

“Do trees have to try hard to purify the air? Does the sun have to try hard to light up the sky? Of course not… they simply do because it is their natural state and gift to do so. Being on purpose does not require anything more than to BE who we already are. In our natural state, we will contribute to humanity and the planet just like every other aspect of nature already is.”

4. I Can Make Mistakes

I usually end each bullet point with a quote… but I can’t wait with this one:

“If babies held the same tendency toward self-criticism as adults, they might never learn to walk or talk. Can you imagine infants stomping, ‘Aarggh! Screwed up again!’ Fortunately, babies are free of self-criticism. They just keep practicing.” – The Way of the Peaceful Warrior

Only Experiences, No MistakesHere’s an analogy: If the road you took led to a dead-end, NO PROBLEM! Now you know this road leads to a dead end. You can now add that map to your internal GPS. It wasn’t a waste of time, it wasn’t a mistake; you learned from walking down that road. You are now more experientially rich. You visited places you would have never visited if you took another “easier” direction. Honour that, let go of judgment. We are not here to go from A to B in a straight line, we are here to experience infinite possibilities, and there isn’t a “wrong” one. And if similar dead-ends keep showing up in your life, it’s probably because you resist the most important lesson: quit judging so much! After all, it’s when we let go of judgment and re-enter a neutral state that we can truly learn from our experiences and deepen our connection to who we truly are.

The freedom we feel once we stop beating ourselves up to fit a narrow path of “perfection” is really, really amazing. So stop, breathe and know that everything is perfect no matter the outcome. There are no mistakes, only experiences. You live, you learn ♫

5. Shooting the Messengers: “It’s Your Fault!”

Pointing FingerIt is easy to point fingers out there when something is upsetting us. But when we understand that we are also here on earth to learn, grow and wizen up, we can’t keep ignoring the fact that we also have some work to do on ourselves. By work, I mean OBSERVING. Observing our patterns. Observing what keeps repeating in our lives to see what it is trying to tell us. Noticing what’s driving us. Is it fear? Is it resentment? Is it the avoidance of something we are afraid to deal with, or an emotion we are afraid to feel again? What are we trying to defend?

When you shift your approach to life from “searching for the one to blame” to “searching for the lesson to learn,” you experience a HUGE level up in how free you feel. The events or people our egos would think to blame are actually the messengers, bringing us a letter saying “hey, you really got a sensitivity/disempowering belief about yourself there, investigate what it’s all about. P.S. I love you.”

The way we have been conditioned to look at it is: “If it is uncomfortable, I must avoid. If it hurts, I must blame the trigger. If I’m afraid, that is because the world is a scary place.” I know it seems almost like a second nature to judge uncomfortable feelings and seek to avoid them at all cost. I am going through this myself. but I can also say from experience that allowing myself to feel what I feel and investigating what is the root of my trigger -as opposed to simply blaming what/who brought it up –has brought me the greatest freedom I have ever experienced.

So here’s a new way to look at freedom. It’s not a positive-thinking technique. It’s not about avoiding anything and chasing after something else. It’s not about skipping the bumpy road and the button pushers. It’s about getting rid of those buttons! Otherwise it’s like blaming the fire for the gasoline you carry yourself. When we know ourselves to be the creator of our reality -not the victim -everything changes!

“These messengers are easy to identify because they materialize as any event or person’s behavior that upsets us. We were invited to do our best not to “shoot the messenger.” Accordingly, we “dismiss the messenger” and in the same breath acknowledge that the value of the upsetting experience is in the message, not its carrier. We don’t blame the mail carrier for bills that are delivered, just as we don’t blame a mirror for what it reflects. Likewise, it’s pointless reacting to reflections of our unintegrated emotional charges.” – Michael Brown – The Presence Process

Here is a great talk and guided clearing meditation to help get to the root of our emotional reactions and clear them:

Useful Tip To Choose Freedom Everyday:

To end this article, I wish to share with you a tip that is personally helping me choose freedom everyday. Whenever you are obsessing over certain thoughts, are caught up in worry or are battling with your mind, ask yourself this powerful question:

“Is This Freeing Me, Right Now?”

If it feels constrictive in your body, let it go, breathe it out and choose freedom.

If your thoughts are attached to a deeper issue within yourself, you can assist yourself through guided clearing meditations such as the one in the video above. But ultimately, it will all come down to a choice between the freedom of this moment and the constriction of being caught up in the mind.

Choosing freedom will not necessarily cause you to stop doing anything about your challenges, but will release you from the unnecessary mental turbulence that is pulling you away from the peace of this moment and clouding your ability to act intuitively anyways.

“Maybe the mind is waiting for you to choose freedom, so that it can have a rest.” – Mooji

New Moon In Capricorn: Power Struggles, Intensity & Renewal

Avatar

Published

on

We are having a New Moon in Capricorn on January 13th throughout most of the world and on the night of the 12th in Central to Western North America. This is initiating a 29.5 day lunar cycle and new wave of energy for the coming month; however, the astrological configurations mentioned in this article will be more prominent over the following two weeks. This cycle will include a Full Moon in Leo on January 28th/29th.

Capricorn season began on the December 21st solstice, just over three weeks prior to this lunation, and will end on January 19th/20th when Aquarius season begins. However, this New Moon will carry some of the Capricorn energies into the earlier part of Aquarius season.

This is a good period of working with and co-creating with the energies of this sign. Capricorn is associated with structure, ambitions, achieving goals, mastery, business, career, social status, responsibilities, duty, authority, governance, and hard work. It is cautious, worldly, conservative, and pragmatic. As an Earth sign, it has the qualities of practicality, reliability, solidity and being grounded. This element is very much orientated around the physical and material world. Negatively, Capricorn energy can be too serious, cynical, cold, controlling, and unrelenting.

New Moon Conjunct Pluto

This New Moon is aligned with Pluto which is also in Capricorn. This energy can be strong willed, focused, calculated, strategic, secretive, transformational, probing, deep, regenerating, sexual, cleansing, purging, and evolutionary. It can also be destructive, heavy, controlling, intense, subversive, obsessive, compulsive, jealous, power seeking, authoritarian, abusive, violent, manipulative, and dark.

Pluto rules investments, taboos, transmutation, hidden matters, repressed feelings, shadows, psychoanalysis, and the underworld. It is associated with power struggles, conspiracies, viruses, death, fears as well as fearlessness. This Plutonian energy will be strongly felt during the New Moon and in the two days following it, but it will still affect the entire Lunar Cycle.

Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008 and will be there until 2024. Collectively, this is a period of major changes affecting government, financial structures, and business in a big way. This has been more obvious in recent years as Saturn, the Lunar South Node, and Jupiter have all joined Pluto in the same sign. This will continue to be a big theme over the remaining years of Pluto in Capricorn and beyond. We also recently had a Great Conjunction in Aquarius on December 21st which also reflects changes affecting society in a big way over a long period.

This Lunar Cycle can really trigger the collective impact of this energy especially considering the current landscape. To learn more about all of this, I recommend reading my Pluto in Capricorn article from 2017 here and my more recent Great Conjunction article here.

Mars Conjunct Uranus In Taurus Square Jupiter & Saturn in Aquarius

The action oriented Mars recently changed signs into Taurus on January 6th/7th and has since been approaching Uranus, the planet of surprises and rebellion, in the same sign. They are both applying squares to Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius which are still in close proximity with each other.

During this New Moon, from January 12th-14th, Mars is in a square with Saturn which is the first exact aspect made between these four planets. Our actions can be faced with obstacles, delays, resistance, or limitations. Conflicts around boundaries or restrictions can play out. Doing tasks may require extra patience and caution.

As this is finishing, Jupiter will be going into an exact square with Uranus from January 14th to the 19th. This energy can be freedom seeking, rebellious, scattered, idealistic, or even risk taking. It could be good for exploring, learning, education, or expansiveness around things that are new to us, unconventional, technological, scientific, progressive, or metaphysical.

Mars then makes its exact conjunction with Uranus from the 19th to the 21st while it is finishing its square Jupiter. It can really crank up the energies mentioned above and this energy can also be impulsive, erratic, experimental, disruptive, surprising, irritable, and quick tempered.

From the 21st until the 24th, Mars will then be in exact square with Jupiter. We may feel like doing things in a big way but it’s important to be cautious around what we do because we can more easily apply ourselves in a way that is overextending, overestimating, or overlooking of important things. Conflicts around beliefs, opinions, judgements, and principles can play out.

During the later part of this period, the Sun will be in a conjunction with Saturn from the 23rd to 24th. This can have a serious tone, and perhaps the need to be realistic, cautious, orderly, disciplined, committed, or responsible, may come up. Following this, the Sun will be making aspects to Jupiter, Uranus, and Mars in the last week of January and into the first few days of February which can trigger some of the energies mentioned earlier in this section.

The combination of all of these planets in close proximity to aspects with each other throughout January can be good for applying ourselves in new ways that are congruent with changes that are happening personally or collectively. However, it can also be a time of anger, impulsiveness, and rebelliousness towards obstacles, restrictions, opinions, beliefs, authority figures, as well as other recent or upcoming developments, circumstances, or changes.

Venus Square Chiron &  Trine Uranus, Mercury Entering pre-Retrograde Shadow

Venus in Capricorn is in a square with Chiron in Aries at the time of this New Moon and in the day leading up to it.  This can bring up wounds, blockages, negative patterns, or can reflect themes around healing, holistic perception, or perhaps solutions when it comes to love, our social life, friends, pleasures, values, or monetary issues.

Venus is also in a trine with Uranus in Taurus which is strongest in the day and half following this New Moon. It can bring a new, stimulating, unusual, exciting, inspiring, liberating, unexpected, or unique energy around our relations with others.  This can also reflect surprises, positive changes, or freeing type of developments around financial matters. In some cases it can be good for exploring new ways of making money that can be innovative, online, metaphysical, or technologically oriented.

On January 15th, Mercury in Aquarius will be entering the shadow period of its retrograde that will be beginning on January 30th/31st and last until February 20th/21st. It can increasingly start to feel like it’s retrograde during these weeks leading up to it as delays, technological/mechanical problems, mistakes, miscommunications, misunderstandings, or other complications can be more probable than in the previous six weeks.

Certain developments, interactions, connections, or issues that occur at this time can be connected to how this retrograde will affect us in February through its adjusting and perceptive changing qualities. There can be something we are not seeing clearly that needs to unfold throughout the upcoming retrograde and post-retrograde process. I will be writing a separate article on this, you can join my mailing list here to ensure that you receive it.

Making Intentions & Things To Consider

What changes do you need to make when it comes to your ambitions, career, structures, or business matters? What can you do to make your profession more congruent with a changing world? What are you fighting for and what can you do to be more calculated, effective, and persuasive? What kind of strategies can you employ to help you achieve your goals? Do you need to be more innovative when it comes to making money? What area of your life is calling for some sort of purging, cleansing, empowerment, and/or transformation?

These are just some examples of what to consider or focus your intentions on at this time. However, it is good to reflect on anything else that is coming up for you. It is generally best to make any intentions within the first 24 hours following a New Moon. The exact moment it will occur is 5:00am Universal Time on January 13th.

Mermaids: Ancient Mythology or Actual Reality?

Avatar

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Mermaids have been written about by several cultures across multiple time periods, from Babylon till now. There have even been claims of recent sightings. With all of the lore that exists, it's not hard to imagine these beings could be real.

  • Reflect On:

    How many examples exist where ancient knowledge has turned into ancient fact? How much do we really know about our true suppressed history? Could there be a whole world we don't know about our there?

Photo credit: Ramakien Murals depicting the hero Hanuman meeting the mermaid Suvannamaccha, Wat Phra Kaew, Bangkok, Thailand, 1831.

Ancient lore is fascinating to say the least, especially if you dive into mythology. What’s always attractive about mythology is that there are good reasons to believe that a lot of it isn’t actually mythological, but real in some cases.

We see this in many examples, Plato’s (among others before and after him) description of Atlantis could be one, especially when you tie in all of the evidence that’s emerged of its existence. Another example could be people with ‘superhuman’ abilities, like clairvoyance, telepathy, and psychokinesis that we find in a lot of Buddhist and other ancient Eastern texts.

Today, there are many documents and examples of people who demonstrate these types of  abilities. Another great example is Nikola Tesla, who derived his ideas of “free energy” and electrical generators from ancient Vedic concepts.  Let’s not forget about modern day quantum physics and neuroscience and their close correlation with ancient eastern philosophy and buddhism.

There are many topics to choose from, and it seems that we always place ideas and concepts that don’t fit within the frame of  accepted reality into the  ‘mythological’ category. This is obviously quite understandable, but remember that those who actually spoke about these creatures and studied the lore are certain some of these so-called mythological concepts were completely real. Why is that so?

Perhaps they were? I don’t think we should completely rule out the possibility. Mermaids are a great example, and one of many.

Mermaids

We see images everywhere today, Starbucks even uses the two-tailed mermaid as their logo. According to Greek mythology, mermaids, also known as sirens, were predatory in nature, masters in the art of seduction. They would seduce men at sea with songs and promises of sex, only to kill those who succumbed to their lure. But stories of their benevolence and malevolence differ.

One study in the Journal of Academic Study of Religion explains,

The mermaid blurs the boundary between woman and fish, femininity and carnality, land and sea, human and other. She is also held to be an astral entity in various metaphysical circles, in the mermaiding industry she is often marketed as an ambassador for marine preservation, and in the general pervasiveness of this character, competing with inhuman beings such as vampires, werewolves, and angels in the heavily mediated realm of contemporary culture, the mermaid represents an additional opportunity to invest in an other-than-human identity.

They are also depicted in ancient Vedic lore, the story of Suvannamaccha, for example, comes from the Asian versions of ancient Hindu mythology. They are not always depicted as luring, tricky beasts, some stories speak of them as protectors, falling in love, and more. They also tell of a history of capture, which isn’t surprising, reflecting a dark tendency of the human race in our current state of consciousness. It would be no surprise why these beings may not take to kindly to the race of men, and perhaps still don’t. After all, look what we’ve done to the oceans and continue to do. Look what we are doing to life on this planet…

Etheric Domain

According to one of the foremost authorities on the subject, Manly P. Hall (from his book, The Secret Teachings of All Ages), the Undines, as they were also known, were water elementals, that function “in the invisible, spiritual essence called humid (or liquid) ether.

This is particularly interesting because that’s another thing that’s been spoken of in ancient “mythology” for so long, but now physics is showing it to be true. Here’s a great quote that illustrates that:

“And they allowed Apollonius to ask questions; and he asked them of what they thought the cosmos was composed; but they replied; “Of elements.” “Are there then four?” he asked. “Not four,” said Larchas,  “but five.” “And how can there be a fifth,” said Apollonius, “alongside of water and air and earth and fire?” “There is the ether,” replied the other, “which we must regard as the stuff of which gods are made; for just as all mortal creatures inhale the wire, so do immortal and divine natures inhale the ether.” “Am I,” said Appollonius, “to regard the universe as a living creature?” “Yes,” said the other. – The Life of Apollonius of Tyana, Philostratus, 220AD (source)

According to Nikola Tesla,

“All perceptible matter comes from a primary substance, or tenuity beyond conception, filling all space, the akasha or luminiferous ether, which is acted upon by the life-giving Prana or creative force, calling into existence, in never-ending cycles all things and phenomena.”– Nikola Tesla, Man’s Greatest Achievement, 1907

Other-Dimensional Visitation

This is why, in my opinion, it’s not hard at all believing that forms of life, invisible to our senses, also dwell in the ether and in realms we cannot perceive with our senses. Other beings would be nature spirits like fairies or gnomes who, according to the lore, can also appear in our ‘dimensional’ reality as well, on our frequency, if they choose to do so.

According to Hall, from The Secret Teachings of All Ages,

The Undines are able to control, to a great degree, the course and function of this fluid in Nature. Beauty seems to be the keynote of the water spirits. Wherever we find them pictured in art or sculpture, they abound in symmetry and grace. Controlling the water element–which has always been a feminine symbol–it is natural that the water spirits should most often be symbolized as female.

Hall writes about how there are many different groups of Undines; some live in waterfalls, others in fast-moving rivers or remote marshes, some in mountain lakes as well as in the ocean.

In describing them, the ancients agreed on certain salient features. In general, nearly all the Undines closely resemble human beings in appearance and size, though the ones inhabiting small streams and fountains were of correspondingly of lesser proportions. It was believed that these water spirits were occasionally capable of assuming the appearance of normal human beings and actually associating with men and women.

 He goes on to describe stories of these water spirits and their adoption by families. As far as the males, Hall does not dismiss their existence but writes that practically nothing is known about them. We do know of one, however, called Neptune. We also know of another.

The Babylonians worshipped a fish-tailed god named Oannes. John Ashton, author of Curious Creatures in Zoologyproposes that this is the first depiction of a merman. Also in ancient lore, the goddess Atargatis, chief goddess of northern Syria, was depicted as a fish-bodied human, supposedly constituting the first known representation of a mermaid.

He describes a group of Undines interestingly, and different from other mythology we see. Perhaps these ‘elementals’ differ from other creatures that are closer to our own frequency? Hall goes on to explain,

Their temperament is said to be vital, and to them has been given as their throne the western corner of creation. They are rather emotional beings, friendly to human life and fond of serving mankind. They are sometimes pictured riding on dolphins or other great fish and seem to have a special love of flowers and plants, which they serve almost as devotedly and intelligently as the gnomes. Ancient poets have said that the songs of the Undines were heard in the West Wind and that their lives were consecrated to the beautifying of the material earth.

It’s also noteworthy to mention that multiple apparent sightings have been recorded and spoken about in modern history as well, according to numerous eyewitnesses a few years ago, from a seaside shore town in Israel. They said it looked like a cross between a little girl and a dolphin, and only comes out at sunset. “People are telling us they are sure they have seen the mermaid and they are all independent of each other,” said Natti Zilberman, a local council spokesman, as she spoke to ABC News. It sparked so much controversy that the Mayor offered a million dollar reward for a photograph.

Perhaps there are many concepts of our reality that remain unknown to us? Always interesting to explore 🙂 There are many truths waiting to be discovered that would completely change our perception of not only our planet but also the nature of reality itself.

Who Are You Really? The Impactful Video That Could Change Your Life

Avatar

Published

on

This short and sweet film reminds us of who we are at the core: the person we were before being made to believe that growing up meant giving up your creativity and your authenticity; the person we were before losing touch with nature and our true Self. We can get so caught up with the business of life that we forget the joy of it, and go about our days unconsciously, with no idea how much self-awareness we have lost. For some of us living in the corporate world, or doing any job we are unsatisfied with, we might not even realize we are living out our days on auto-pilot. Choices are presented to us and we make decisions automatically, robotically even, without putting much thought into the act — without putting much of ourselves into the choosing.

“What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.”

– unknown

So how do you find out who you really are and what you really want out of life? The answer is simple: Give yourself a day to be completely present.

Evaluate how you feel when you wake up, when you go to work, when you are at work, how you communicate with others, etc. What are you really feeling? If you feel complacent or disengaged, it might be time to reexamine your current position at work (or in life) so that you are sure you are getting the most out of what you are given, which sometimes might just go right over your head.

The beautiful thing about life is that it is ever-changing; it moves with or without us and we have a choice about whether to live actively or passively — to engage in everything life has to offer or to fall into the background of someone else’s life.

So what do you choose?

As a side note, we have a powerful course inside our membership area called CETV that helps to bring presence and self awareness to your everyday life through a simple set of tools. It’s called Profound Realization and you can check it out here.

“Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.” 

– Jim Rohn

So here it is: “I am Nature” by Alex Eslam, written by Die Rabauken.

These days, it’s not just knowing information and facts that will create change, it’s changing ourselves, how we go about communicating, and re-assessing the underlying stories, ideas and beliefs that form our world. We have to practice these things if we truly want to change. At Collective Evolution and CETV, this is a big part of our mission.

Amongst 100's of hours of exclusive content, we have recently completed two short courses to help you become an effective changemaker, one called Profound Realization and the other called How To Do An Effective Media Detox.
