3 Simple Things You Can do to Empower Yourself

1) Be "Who You Really Are". That statement used to sound so silly to me. I thought, "Of, course I am being who I really am, who else would I be being?!" But today I realize the depth of that statement. The best thing that has ever happened to me was remembering and re-discovering who I really am. Decades of standards and ideals both societal and self-imposed, layer after layer, severely covered up a really amazing, extraordinary and beautiful human being who apparently was dying (no pun intended) to come out and play! What if there were no standards or ideals put…

How to be the Soul of Your Relationships

Our soul work starts with the ones we love, the ones who know our deepest secrets and our worst fears. These close relationships are the primary stepping-stones to learning how to love unconditionally. But bringing love and compassion to one another in these dark times is more easily said than done. So often our insecurities, disappointments, or expectations - stemming from our belief that the other person is responsible for our happiness - can get in the way. No wonder we want to run from or push away the relationships that most strongly reflect our darkness. It's our erroneous belief…

Surrender and the Power of Prayer

Normally, we think of surrender in one way. For example, I don't know how many of you have seen the movie Life of Pi, but in it, the main character finds himself in the middle of the ocean without food, without water, and with nowhere to go. Eventually, in his desperation, he calls to the Creator and he says, "Okay! I give myself to you! I surrender!" That's one kind of surrender. But that's not the surrender I'm talking about. There's another form of surrender-aggressive surrender- which is when I can say to myself, "I'm prepared and I'm willing to…

What If Life is But a Dream?

Many of us have had the experience of awaking from a vivid dream or nightmare and being certain that what we dreamed really happened. Then, as we awaken more, we realize we were only dreaming. It didn't really happen. Or did it? We can have the reverse experience too—dream-like moments happen even though we are awake. One day, while holding my grandson Kai on my lap, I had a waking dream. As if it were yesterday, I remembered sitting on my grandfather's lap. In a dreamlike way I wondered how I had become the grandfather, and so quickly too. In…

Life Feeling Too Dull? Change Your Perception

I, like you, am just a normal person living a normal life. But, by "normal" I don't mean mundane. Nothing that exists in this universe should ever be seen as mundane! Take a moment to breathe. Look around you right now. You see a computer, a desk, maybe a window and trees outside. You see your hands. You feel your clothes against your skin. Perhaps you smell dinner cooking, or notice the familiar scents of your office. Everything you have noticed just now is a miracle. Once, none of it existed. Can you picture the total absence of everything? When…

Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Heart

Sometimes we think about things too much. We need to be more in the heart. The mind is a part of our existence that causes real problems when we are attempting something. Everybody on earth has experienced the stream of endless and meaningless thoughts that crop up in the mind. Think back to a time when you have been lying in bed unable to sleep. Never-ending banter and thoughts make you agitated and restless. As a result you toss and turn and cannot rest. The mind will do this 24/7 unless you learn to invoke silence, to access a deeper…

Heartfelt Brilliance That You Simply Must Read

The greatest power in the universe is faith. The same force that gives rise to the longings in our heart is guiding our lives towards their fulfillment. Like wind in our sails, when we let go and allow the Divine breezes of support and insight to direct our lives we discover a happiness and contentment beyond what we could have dreamed of for ourselves. Fear tells us that we can only be happy in certain situations and as long as such and such does or does not happen. Unfortunately, it is these ideas of what will make us happy that…

Today’s Brilliance from Margot Potter

I'm a restless sort of a gypsy soul and I have found that following my intuition and my heart has led me on a fascinating journey. I have come to understand in the course of my lifetime that the only thing that matters, the only thing that is real is love. When I speak of love, I mean absolute unconditional love. When we love unconditionally, we are reaching our highest purpose. When we learn to love unconditionally we also learn to forgive. When we learn the power of forgiveness and come to understand that forgiveness isn't a sanctioning of bad…

We all have the ability to live life on our terms, but yet many of us don't realize this till it's too late. What would you do if you had one day to live?

If you want to pursue your dreams, there is no better time to start than right now. We do not have anything to fear, but fear itself. Our surroundings, circumstances, and society tell us exactly…

Your Happiness IS a Choice

When you realize that happiness is a choice, a lot of things change. They get easier. It's easier to have fun, relax and move forward in your life with the things that matter. Realizing that happiness is a choice didn't come easy though. I believe that having a strong sense of self-awareness really allows you to see how achievable happiness is and what happiness actually means. When I could really understand myself and my goals and really not let other people's perception of me or my goals bother me...being happy got a lot easier. For a while I was too…

I would share these Top 10 Life Lessons for Humanity.... 1. TRUTH: Let go of all your inner struggles or fights by accepting what is. What IS the truth?

John 8:32 2. PASSION: Listen to the desires and passions in your heart. There is…

Peace Of Mind- An Inside Job

Everyone is looking for "happiness with no sorrow" or peace of mind, but most people are looking for this outside themselves. They are looking for it in someone, in some thing, in making money, being a big shot, having possessions, and so on. Unfortunately, it is impossible to find peace of mind that way. Here's an example for you. Take a look at somebody who is powerful, who is monetarily successful. How happy are they? How satisfied are they? Do they really have peace of mind?

Today’s Brilliance from Sue Frederick

Divine order rules! A doubt-inducing childhood, a sweet young husband's early death, countless broken hearts and flawed careers, were all perfectly designed to get me where I came here to go; to help me evolve to my highest state of grace, to know God, and to become who I became. I mostly forget this. When I'm on path and in alignment with divine order, I feel of use to the greater message, the larger truth, the highest good. It moves through me like a ray of light piercing everything, a laser beam opening my heart, filling the pages of my…

Today’s Brilliance from Lorna Nicholson

Life is about passion, finding something to do that makes you excited and gives you a reason to live. That something can be anything. Too many people are afraid to live passionately because they fear they won't be successful at their passion. Yes, some people, like professional musicians, actors and athletes, make millions of dollars doing what they love and that is fantastic. Unfortunately, so many people look at them and say, "I can't do that. I'm not good enough at my passion." So they give up and live a life that is safe. But, honestly, pursuing your passion doesn't…

Looking for Happiness? Accept Yourself

I've gleaned some fundamental principles from the wisdom offered by several "metaphysical" guides on how to go about living a life better filled with happiness, health, abundance, and fulfillment. They provide a spiritual code of conduct that, when followed, profoundly affects your perception of reality. These few are the key "natural principles": Accept and Allow. This is the key to living a life full of Love. To accept and allow is to invoke the natural power of Divine Love within you.True acceptance involves eliminating judgment while you allow things to be as they are. Crucially, this begins with yourself. Accepting…

Because you deserve to be somebody who makes a difference in the world. Ask yourself this question every day of your life, "Am I doing everything I could with everything I am given?" And you want to be able to answer, "Yes, I am giving it my all." No matter where you are, no matter what you've been through and no matter what takes place during…

Are We Standing on the Edge?

This we know: Humanity stands at the precipice. We must quickly decide whether we will continue to desecrate and destroy our planet, or whether we will make the needed changes and sacrifices that allow all of earthly existence to survive and thrive. We are asked to consciously co-create a new reality in which to fulfill our greater, more noble destinies. Indeed it is the very reason that each of us is presently living upon Earth. This we know: We are summoned, and how we respond is critical. Do we step up to the plate and begin to make the necessary…

Today’s Brilliance from Doug Vermeeren

As I have had the opportunity to study more than 400 of the world's top achievers I have found a single interesting key to creating greater productivity and success in all areas of life. It begins with our neurotransmitters. Thoughts move through our brain over a pathway that begins with a neuron, then crosses a bridge called a synapse and is received ultimately by a receptor called a dendrite. Neurotransmitters send signals over the synaptic bridge between neurons and dendrites. This is the exact place where the critical thing happens. The information in the thought either makes the jump over…

Being Yourself Is A Choice

Everyone has different tastes in what they like. That means that you don't have to be someone you're not. Be your most authentic, genuine, and loving self, because there is someone (if not many someones) who will love you just as you are. Discrimination and prejudice: fast tracks to missing out on amazing people and cool learning opportunities. When we are open-hearted and open-minded, we create the potential for some awesome opportunities and amazing relationships. The brain cannot think positive and negative thoughts at the same time. When fear, anger, stress, or resentment creep in, try copping an attitude of…
