Mindset: Thinking Success Personally and Professionally

Mindset: Thinking Success Personally and Professionally

I recently had the opportunity to join Lainie Sevante Wulkan on Zeta Global Conscious Radio and share a conscious conversation on understanding mindset and personal growth development. I invite you to tune in and listen.

 

Journey with Joy

Journey with Joy

As I’m beginning to write, these Sunday school song lyrics are in my mind:
I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart
Where?
Down in my heart!
Where?
Down in my heart!
I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart
Down in my heart to stay

Joy is defined as a feeling of great pleasure and happiness. Personally speaking, it is often the simple things that bring me the greatest joy. We have recently had a lot of rain in Oklahoma, and I am always on the lookout to see a rainbow when it rains. Traveling home from Tulsa last week, I was eager and excited to catch a glimpse of one beginning to form.

Subsequently, I was delighted to view an entire one from end to end. Sensing my joy, my husband offered to pull the truck over several times, so I could fully embody the experience rather than whizzing by at 65 mph.

I snapped several images, yet the vibrancy and expansiveness were unable to be captured fully. Nevertheless, here are two of the images from that moment in time.

Of course, this is just one example. I believe that it is essential for each one of us to become aware of how we’re investing our emotional, mental, financial, and physical energy, and then choosing to recognize whether these activities bring us joy, connection, nurturing, rest, and creativity to our lives.

When we focus on bringing love and joy to our life or perhaps just allowing it to happen rather than bringing, it will have a ripple effect throughout our life. A simple affirmation can assist us with this process.

Affirm ~ My heart overflows with gratitude and joy. I am conscious of being present in this moment. I recognize that I am love and I am loved. I am allowing myself to simply breathe.

What makes you happy? How do you journey with joy?

Honor Your Well-Being During the Holiday Season

christmas2This time of year and the holiday season can be a very stressful time for a lot of people. This stress may involve shopping for gifts and the associated financial aspects as well as the interaction with family during get-togethers.

If you feel anxious and tend to dread the holiday season, take a moment to breathe in deeply and let go of the lower vibration emotions of fear, worry, doubt, regret, guilt, shame, anger, frustration, etc. and breathe in the higher vibration of love. Allow yourself to acknowledge those individuals and situations that are triggers for you as well as those people, places and things that push your buttons, so that you can clear those triggers from affecting you anymore.

Recognize that it is necessary for you to honor yourself and what YOU are feeling, especially during this holiday season. Consciously choose to acknowledge any emotions you are feeling and then release them. You are in control of your thoughts, words, actions, emotions and reactions. You choose how you wish to perceive an experience and how you wish to respond to it. Remember, each individual is having their own unique human life experience.

Balancing the aspects of mind, body, and spirit is an integral part of our overall well-being. One’s physical health, mental/emotional health and spiritual health should all be considered. It is important to cultivate the spirit, yet equally important to honor the mind and body.

Here are a few tips to energetically assist you in having a stress-free holiday season:
Tip #1 – Be Present
Focus your energy on being present and in the NOW at this very moment. Allow yourself to become fully aware and completely present right here, right now. Being present involves living in the moment rather than focusing on the future or dwelling in the past. Focus on living, be-ing and breathing in the moment.

Tip #2 – Breathe
Take a moment to breathe in deeply and exhale anyone and anything that no longer serves you. Be mindful of your inhalations and your exhalations. Two to three times a day for 2-3 minutes, take a moment to pause in order to clear your mind and open your heart. Visualize yourself breathing in emerald green healing energy and exhaling the pain, hurt, fear, frustration, worry and doubt. Release it and let it go.

Tip #3 – Ground Your Energy
Grounding your energy keeps you present and in the moment. It completes the energy circuit and anchors your energy to the earth below. Keeping firmly planted energetically helps prevent feelings of fuzziness or spacey-ness that can often disperse your personal energy.

Tip #4 – Center Your Energy
Centering your energy involves finding that calm spot deep inside yourself that is eternal being-ness. Take a few deep breaths and bring awareness inward to the central essence – that place that is peaceful and serene no matter what the external circumstance. Think of the phrase, “Calm, cool and collected” as you exhale and smile.

Tip #5 – Release and Receive
Release feeling obligated to reciprocate when someone gives you a gift. Allow yourself the ability to receive without giving. Honor yourself and what you are feeling, but there is no need to hold onto the feel bad or guilt energy. Simply receive and sincerely say, “Thank you!” If you are the giver, release the expectation that a gift will be reciprocated. Be mindful of the intention behind giving.

Tip #6 – Give the Gift of You
If you typically exchange gifts with a friend, family member or co-worker, you may be guided to do something different this year. Many individuals do purchase what they need when they need it, so you may choose to forgo giving a material gift and instead give the gift of you. Plan an excursion or get together and spend time with someone you love. You may also want to volunteer your time or donate to a favorite charity. Perhaps, you may bake a special treat or create a handmade gift. These thoughtful gifts as well as the gift of your presence is immeasurable and greatly appreciated.

Tip #7 – Express your Gratitude
Gratitude is an expression of thankfulness. The simple words, “thank you,” extend far beyond their utterance. They are an acknowledgement of appreciation. Acknowledging and expressing gratitude for all you are thankful for radiates this energy to the Universe and returns in more blessings.

Honoring yourself during this holiday season will create a ripple effect throughout your life. Rather than isolating yourself, consciously choose to honor yourself. Remember, your mental/emotional well-being is an essential aspect of your physical health.

Journey with Intentions

We are now two weeks into 2014. This year’s energy feels fresh and new. I can feel the change, movement, vibrancy and possibilities that this year holds. Can you feel it as well?

Copyright Caitlin Wilson 2013As I’ve stated many times, I don’t make resolutions. However, I do set intentions. My new year’s intentions are to stay grounded, focused, centered and present to continue to create and manifest opportunities and abundance in my life. I am allowing myself to be in the flow of creation; instead of inhibiting or restricting this flow with the linear time aspect and the need to know everything all of the time. Life is so much easier and takes pressure off of us when we allow ourselves to be rather than do.

I invite you to take a moment and write down your new year’s intentions. Be mindful of the energy behind these intentions – are they love based/coming from the heart-space or fear based/feeling of lack? One isn’t “good” or “bad” per se, just different energetic vibrations.

Remember to see the blessings within the challenges and enjoy life moment by moment while honoring all emotions and experiences along the way.
