Get High daily. Twice daily if you can! The following one minute positivity stream is a quick, simple, effective way to shift your mind and align yourself with Source energy. Writing, thinking, or saying (mentally or verbally) whatever comes to mind about how you're feeling when you are in your zone, feeling centered and in flow, creates an instantaneous shift. Your body will feel warmth, invigoration, peace. Positivity raises us from ego-centered, lower-level chakras allowing us to experience awakening the heart, experiencing the feel of high vibrations.
Take time each day to check in with yourself. Ask yourself how you're feeling. Where are you focusing your attention? What are you thinking? Is it positive? Are you working towards alignment or going against the current?
Is your insatiable urge for pleasure in your adult life a hopeless attempt to gain the pleasure you missed as a child? Are you an adrenaline addict, thriving on conflict?
We've grown up thinking life has to be hard if we want to achieve or acquire “good” things. We don't want to be labelled lazy. We've been believing that results come about only from struggle and pain. So, we press on relentlessly, without taking a breath, without asking ourselves questions . . . starting with, how does this feel? Instead, we operate to please others, to live up to society's standards, to gain extrinsic approval and reward.
We're making life harder on ourselves when we stay all trapped up in our minds, unaware that we are NOT our thoughts. So lost replaying the past, fretting over the future, we don't realize it doesn't have to be this way.
RE-learning how to cultivate positivity allows us to feel the shift. We CAN shift gears -- by disconnecting from the outer world and by going within -- connecting with a wholesome inner world. This practice takes conscious daily effort, commitment, with focused, devoted will -- but mostly it takes sincere desire to want to return back to your true nature.
It's as simple as easing up on ourselves, surrendering, and letting go. We don't need to continue pushing . . . punishing ourselves to prove anything to anybody. No more paddling our boats tirelessly upstream, strapping unnecessary baggage on our backs climbing uphill. The frustrating search for that external peak somewhere out there rests within. Our truth is to be found with ease . . . in gentle downstream discovery; the thrill is on the descent. It's in complete surrender that we flow with Source and find our true home, within ourselves, with Self as the ultimate resource.
Let's try this one-minute exercise in order to get in touch with Source energy. Choose a neutral word like “center” or “one.” Simply close your eyes . . . take three deep, cleansing breaths.
Settle in, drop down into your pelvis, deep down into your center. Place your hands on your belly and breathe here for three slow breaths. Imagine a grounding cord running from your spine going deeply into the earth. Allow any excess mental energy to run down your spine and be released into the earth.
Once you feel grounded, fully supported by the Earth, imagine a time when you felt at one with nature or create a situation where you experience perfect tranquility. Maybe it's by the lake, in the ocean, walking in the forest, or simply playing with your children/grandchildren.
Find that feeling where you feel in harmony with all of life. Enter into the feeling of this experience in the here and now. Experience the heart awakening, bring about words to express these feelings of goodness, fullness and love that feeling centered brings . . .
Now, mentally recite positivity for one minute. For example: “Center brings me to feeling in balance; Center gives me a sense of calm, peace, ease, flow, security, happiness, excitement, eagerness, warmth, good feelings. [KEEP GOING] I like being centered. I feel good when I'm balanced and at center. There's no resistance when I'm centered. Center is strong. Center is real. Center is the truth. I feel alive when I'm in center. I feel colorful, magnetic, and powerful in center. I am vibrating and emitting good vibes from center. Center feels good. Center feels right. Center is safe. Center is reality. I am protected at my center. I receive Spirit in center. I am open, willing, able, confident, purposeful, flowing, and happy at my center. I love from my center. I am happiest when I'm centered. It feels safe. It's calm and nurturing. It feels like home. I am strong when I'm home and centered. I am focused, balanced, centered. It feels good. It feels right. It is easy. There's freedom. There's space. There's light. There's peace. There's serenity. I am in it. I am guided. I feel grateful. I feel warm, loving, vibrant, full of life. I am beautiful. I AM.”
"Each of us has a most natural way to be, and when we're aligned with it, our outer world comes into balance. It takes faith to believe harmony does exist. But you first have to believe that it can be found before you can surrender to it."
A one-legged yoga posture demonstrates balance. The tree posture is easy to describe. Stand tall and erect with your weight equally distributed on both feet. Shift your weight to your right foot so that your left foot bears no weight on it, and you can pick it up. Now bring your left foot up and brace it against the inside thigh of your right leg. Stretch yourself downward and upward simultaneously to avoid throwing your hip out to the right. Let go of your leg and bring your palms together in prayer posture to your chest and find the point of balance.
At first, this posture will have you wobbling back and forth, trying to achieve the desired state of balance. You use the large muscles in your legs and abdomen to try to align yourself, but you continue to wobble back and forth, beyond the balance point. Eventually you sink into equilibrium. You align with the center point that is already there! When you quit trying, and instead, align to the point of balance within, you eventually become skilled in this posture --you'll continue making minor adjustments with your feet and toes, but adjustments become more subtle than before.
What's true with the body is true with the mind and emotions. Before you can create or experience balance, you must exert effort and align to the balance point within. You must believe balance already exists somewhere within, and if you can become sensitive to it, you will align with it.
Decisions made from a place of imbalance will lead to further requirements for adjustments. Making decisions from a balanced place leads to balanced decisions.
Believe in your center and trust that it can always be found.
To find balance you must know how it feels. If you do not know this place of harmony within, you can't know what this centered place feels like, you have no point of reference. If you make the effort to pay attention, to become aware, you will begin to notice how effortlessly your life will come into harmony.
As you begin to feel harmony, conflict begins to disappear from your life. Your instincts become trained to move out of a reactionary point of view and into adopting a “witness” perspective. With a little more space to see, life takes on greater ease. While issues will continue to emerge, you're better able to deal with them by making minor adjustments. You're becoming resilient, allowing life to continue to unfold in its mysterious ways.
The art of balance brings a refinement to life, heightening the senses, allowing enjoyment and appreciation of simple pleasures, even everyday chores.
Let's Get Into The Zone. Feel the pocket. Your groove. Center. I call it Home.
When we step out of our heads by focusing intently on whatever it is we're doing (drawing, coloring, listening to music, playing sports, dancing, singing, walking), life flows. Flow occurs because we are in alignment with Source energy; we are in tune with our higher Selves. Alignment occurs when we are fully present, absorbed, connected, centered -- feeling love.
Abraham Hicks calls this feeling “being in the vortex.” She reminds us to check in with ourselves to see if we're in alignment by checking in with our thoughts. If our thoughts are positive and feel good, they are aligning us; if negative and uncomfortable, we are out of alignment.
I like to refer to my inner world as my “home.” When I close my eyes, I can escape the outer world and retreat into quiet stillness, creating another reality; a beautiful, safe inner world. Yet I realize that “home” stirs up negative emotions for a lot of us. "Home" may trigger emotions from cultural conditioning, spoken and unspoken. Expectations of family, school, church, friends, and coworkers who send strong messages of how we should be according to others. Failing to ask ourselves whether these influences are really working for us causes us to feel disconnected from ourselves, from the Self. Even though we may have achieved success, when you're a success in a life that others chose, life lacks spirit and instead feels like drudgery.
Living unbalanced, out of tune with your true nature, clouds perception and sends us into an insecurity cycle, leading us to approach life as a victim -- finding all too many scenarios that support our view of scarcity. This fearful view creates defensive living. But the physical world will not come into balance for us. The outer balance is simply a reflection of the inner imbalance. Inner imbalance creates situations in the outer world and blockages in the the physical body making us feel unease, disconnected, pessimistic, or numb.
Change the inner experience of energy and the outer world will follow. Since the mind creates pain and suffering, our goal is to change our beliefs and to find a place within where things feel easy, loving, comforting, positive, and safe. This place can only be found within, at the seat of our soul, at our heart center. Source is constantly flowing, streaming through us. We are always vibrating with Source. We just need to make the conscious effort to connect and identify with it.
