Do you know where you're growing?

2018 was an amazing year for me.

One of the more deliberate years in recent memory.

What I mean by that is,

I was in control of consciously creating my reality.

I did’t show up to the past unfolding over and over again.

This doesn’t mean I don’t have a routine or maintain a schedule,

it means I was in the active process of growing my brightest future.

I had many profound experiences.

A deep remembering of the path I am on.

The path is one of freedom and light.

One of unconditional love and compassion.

It is a path of growth, rather than change.

I see change as a compromise of who I am.

I see growth as the opportunity to become more of what is possible.

The way to do this is to understand where I’ve been and where I want to be.

No matter what, I am and will always be the perfection of the essence that is me.

We all are always perfect as is.

I seek growth to challenge the depths of this expreience.

The growth I am talking about is for more awareness.

It is not to have more happiness,

because I know that happiness available to me now,

at any point in the process.

Growing awareness is a lot of daily work of watching and maintaining the mind.

It’s the awareness that makes the time in between giving away your power and remembering you are the only one who can control your mind, shorter.

It’s the awareness that turns problems into power.

It’s evolutionary thinking.

We don’t need to grow to survive,

but let’s see what we’re capable of.

I’m in the planning stages of my 2019.

Everything’s coming up Mary, my best year yet.

I am going to guarantee it by practicing what it will feel like

when my dreams are actualized.

The feelings I will feel in 2019, my biggest growth year yet:

Impecable

Gathered

Flowing

Focused

Beaming

The work is now thinking in alignment with these feelings and qualities.

It’s going to be a wild ride.

I can not wait.

If you need some help planting your 2019 “ I’m on fire garden”',

let me know and we will schedule a mini coaching session.

The more we all grow, the brighter the glow.

Breathe, Relax, Feel, Watch, Allow

The amazing part of being human is our ability to step into the seat of witness consciousness. It is not something we are taught in school, or even by our parents, at least not in those terms. The opportunity to pay attention to our wandering thoughts and emotions that often times seem to take over, is one we fall short of taking advantage of most of the time. In my opinion, there are no emotions we have that are bad, they are part of our experience because they inform us about what is going on with how we are relating to our circumstances and our higher self. They should not be ignored, dismissed or put down. It is hard not to take our adverse emotions personally, but don’t! Your thoughts and emotions are tools, they are not the essence of your being. When we practice observation without judgment, we strengthen the muscle of pause.

The cornerstone of the Kriplau tradition of yoga I studied, is self-study. This technique I am about to teach you, is an amazing tool, meditation or mantra. Use it how ever you like to. In my “Dig Deeper” video, I guide you through the process as a meditation with additional cues.

Prompt: Next time you are experiencing anxiety, depressive feelings, self doubt, limiting beliefs or another emotion or thought that you would like to shift into something different, try this:

Find a quiet comfortable seat.

Take serval long, slow, deep breaths.

Repeat the five main key words to your self and take several breaths between each one.

It’s not enough to just to say the words but you need to shift your perspective to fully engage in each one. This will change your life if you use it.

BREATHE: notice the sensations of your breath, the rise and fall of the belly and chest, the stretching of the body. from the inside out.

RELAX: Lean back into the space behind you a little, soften any parts of the body you are holding, let go of tension.

FEEL: Notice sensations in the body and your senses.

WATCH: Tune into the witness consciousness. The ability to see your self just as you are right now.

ALLOW: As you deepen into that witness perspective, simply let your thoughts and emotions be what they are. They wash over you just like a wave and before you know it, it shifts.

When you first start this practice, go through the process several times. I suggest doing it as a morning meditation, that way it will become familiar to you when you need to call on it in a time where stuff maybe coming up, you will be able to access it more easily.

I am so excited to offer this tool to you. It is such a powerful way to take control of any situation you find your self in. Problems are only problems if we believe they are. With attention and action you can change the way you feel and think by paying attention. Keep up the good work and let me know if you would like to connect to gain some more insight and knowledge into this type of self inquiry. I would love to work with you.
