The Gift of Non-Attachment

The Gift of Non-Attachment

At certain times, many of us may find ourselves having expectations and pre-conceived notions about a relationship, situation or experience. We may even become extremely attached to achieving a specific outcome or the end result. In doing so, we can then become consumed with frustration and disappointment when things didn’t go as planned and ultimately deprive ourselves of something even better.

I’ve learned over time and with much practice the gift of non-attachment to the outcome. Personally speaking, I recently traveled to Atlanta, GA to collaborate with my friend Jacqueline for a workshop and healing event. No one had registered in advance, yet we knew there was the possibility for walk-ins, and we still needed to be there at the designated time.

On the car ride to the event center that morning, we began discussing possibilities while still being very present and allowing. Turns out, no one showed up for the day long workshop. The private sessions I had scheduled for Sunday were able to be rescheduled to Saturday, so Sunday became available for exploration and play.

Synchronistically, the workshop we created to present is titled “Embracing the Magic Within” and focused on the power words of connection, communication and creation. Rather than present it that day, we were both intended to embody and embrace it for ourselves.

Consider this: Upon reflection, when thinking about your own experiences where you have been attached to the outcome, and it didn’t turn out the way you had planned or even hoped, how did you feel? Did you feel disappointed and frustrated? Were you able to move through that energy to embrace the gift that presented itself to you?

Remember, every experience and individual you encounter offers you opportunities for learning and growth. If you are guided to, choose to consciously practice non-attachment to the outcome whenever possible (and it’s always possible). Sometimes, it is necessary to step back from an experience, observe what is happening, allow it to happen and then let go of the outcome. Subsequently, the magic of the moment unfolds as you welcome the gift of non-attachment.

Calm within the Chaos

Calm within the Chaos

Everything we do is infused with the energy with which we do it.
If we’re frantic, life will be frantic. If we’re peaceful, life will be peaceful.

~ Marianne Williamson

Any time the energy around you feels a bit heavy or overwhelming, it is essential for you to remember that you have the power to shift the energy. You can allow what is happening around you to affect you or you can maintain the calm within the chaos and consciously choose how you wish to respond. Becoming aware of your own energetic emission is necessary, so that you can gauge what feels “off” to you.

I have mentioned before that I am aware of issues connected to Mercury Retrograde, but I don’t intentionally fuel them with fear or worry. During my time in Kansas City recently, my patience was really tested as I experienced numerous challenges. There were issues involving my email, website, communication and even my own energy. On four separate occasions, I actually had to have my hotel room key reprogrammed. Each time was a reminder to pause, breathe and do my best to stay in a space of grace.

To experience peace does not mean that your life is always blissful.
It means that you are capable of tapping into a blissful state of mind
amidst the normal chaos of a hectic life.
~ Jill Bolte Taylor

When there is perceived chaos surrounding you, come back to you by grounding and centering your energy. To ground your energy, visualize your legs as tree roots growing into the earth below and work with grounding crystals, such as hematite, jet, smoky quartz and black tourmaline. Staying hydrated assists with grounding as well.

Then, center your energy by visualizing white light at your core and see that light shifting to yellow, which is the color of the solar plexus chakra. Breathe in peace, love, calmness and serenity as you exhale the heavy, lower vibrational energy that may be affecting you. Remember, often times you cannot control what is happening around you, but you can attain the peace within and choose how you wish to respond.

Happy Love Day! Are you loving you?

Happy Love Day! Are you loving you?

In his book, Whatever Arises, Love That, Matt Kahn refers to the new paradigm of spirituality as a love revolution that begins with you. You are a drop in the ocean of all. How you feel and what you do contributes to that metaphorical ocean of oneness.

Self-love is a choice. It is not the result of achieving this or getting that. Self-love is not a destination; it’s a practice. Self-love is the foundation on which we build a happy life. Without self-love, we have nowhere to put the love or abundance that comes to us.

Just be love…
Love is always here!

Not sure what it looks like to love yourself?
Self-love is…

1. Choosing ourselves and taking responsibility for all of our choices and experiences.

2. Establishing personal boundaries and knowing what is right for you, including saying “no” when you mean no rather than saying yes to appease others.

3. Saying what you mean to say and also communicating your needs and desires to yourself and to others.

4. Taking care of our physical health by giving our body the nurturing, rest, exercise, and comfort it needs to the best of our ability.

5. Honoring our emotions and mental health, while recognizing certain people, places or things may not be right for us or resonate with us.

6. Wearing clothes that make us feel good rather than keeping up with the current styles.

7. Taking time to do whatever we love, just to play, without worrying about wasting time.

8. Seeing ourselves as beautiful, unique and miraculous creations without feeling guilty, arrogant, or entitled to do so.

9. Not rehashing our self-perceived mistakes and instead choosing to see them as opportunities for learning and growth.

10. Spending some quality, connected time with ourselves, which may include pampering, instead of partaking in activities to just occupy our time.

11. Trusting the individualized path that our soul is on without comparing our journey to others and making a genuine effort to become a conscious co-creator of our destiny.

12. Listening to our heart/spirit and following what our gut/intuition says instead of living out of our brain and ego.

13. Knowing how we’re spending our emotional, mental, financial, and physical energy, and recognizing whether these activities bring back joy, connection, nurturing, rest, and creativity to our lives

Lighten Up: Living in Prosperous Joy

Lighten Up: Living in Prosperous Joy

I recently had the opportunity to speak at Unity of Fayetteville in Fayetteville, Arkansas.  To listen to and/or download the inspirational message, please click the Hightail link.

The last few months, I’ve consistently become more aware of consciously choosing to live my life with passion, presence and purpose. Spending time in reflection has also involved questioning mortality, life and truly living.

I often say each one of us are having our own unique human life experience. However, all too often we deny ourselves the opportunity to experience something magical or even limit ourselves based on the fear of being judged. What will people think? How will people perceive me? Will they like me? Is this good or bad, right or wrong?

We may also withhold expressing how we feel because we fear being criticized or judged for saying too much or not enough. To me, it feels extremely limiting to get caught up in what other people think, yet I am human, too, so those thoughts do arise.

Take a moment to consider – Are you living a life of joy or simply existing?

It’s time for each one of us to lighten up and consciously choose to live a prosperous life with passion, presence and purpose. Do your best to live your life fully with no regret. Speak from the heart. Be present in the moment. Stop judging and being critical of yourself and those around you. Surrender to the sweetness of life. Live your life and let others live theirs. Everyone is experiencing their own journey into consciousness.

Journey with Aliveness

Journey with Aliveness

Imagination makes it possible to experience a whole world inside the mind and creates possibilities. It offers the opportunity to look at any situation from a different point of view and then to mentally explore the past and the future. Through the power of imagination, we can transform our lives and is one of the keys to living an enhanced or different life. Whatever outcome we envision, we can achieve. Using this gift, we can release limiting thoughts and realize our divine potential.

Learn to use your imagination to raise your thinking to a higher level and to consciously create by choosing to replace any negative (lower vibrational) thoughts with positive (higher vibrational) ones through awareness and intention. Doubt and fear are the biggest obstacles to the manifestation process. Understanding how to use your imagination and putting this knowledge into practice, for your own and others’ benefit, will put you on the path to success, satisfaction and happiness.

Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement. ~ Golda Meir

With so much heavy and chaotic energy surrounding us, it is essential to attain and maintain inner peace, not just for ourselves, but also for the collective consciousness. A heart-centered love-based intention reminds us to stay in a space of grace, especially when faced with challenges. In doing so, we are tapping into the well of Divine love. This love is accessible, unconditional and unfaltering. It transcends yet also embraces.

It is time for each one of us to wake up to our greatness so that we can truly live life fully. Have the courage to imagine this reality and choose to journey into consciousness with fullness and aliveness rather than simply existing.
