How to Release the Brakes & Step Out of Your Comfort Zone

How to Release the Brakes & Step Out of Your Comfort Zone

  Have you ever heard that saying "Everything you want in life is just outside your comfort zone?" So many people in the world are traveling through their lives with their spiritual, emotional, physical, and psychological emergency brakes on and because of it they never pick up speed or momentum to even peak beyond the corner of their comfort zone, let alone go full throttle and fly towards a life of their dreams. Their doubts more often than not win the day and their fears override the juicy freedom that awaits openly beyond the illusionary borders that they've placed upon themselves.  Borders that become maximum potential demarcation lines surrounding what they've deemed possible for their life. Potential by definition means “that which is possible” and so the question remains what is your human potential then after all?  Where is your personal finish line letting you know that you've reached it?  Is there an indication, a light bulb, a spark of awareness that goes off inside your mind letting you know that you've hit your limit when you've given your life...

Needing Others to Change in Order to Forgive Them

Q. How can I really forgiving someone when they won't change? ~ Lisa H. – Texas   A. This is a challenging piece to move through and I'm grateful you asked this, you are not alone in feeling this way.  We don’t forgive someone else to make them feel better, to absolve them of their sins.  No one needs another human’s absolution to be clear and considered pure again, thank God.  We forgive so that we can get past the pain of our hurts and expand our capacity to love even more.  We forgive so that we can let go of staying trapped in the old energy of pain and unhealthy connections to that other person/situation. Ultimately we have no right to judge anyone, inherently there is good in bad people and bad in good people, myself included.  I have also seen people choose not to forgive because they lack the courage to move forward with their life.  It is safer to stay in that energetic rut than to allow themselves the freedom to move forward to get past the...

Manifesting A New Perspective - Creating A New World

Manifesting A New Perspective – Creating A New World

You yourself are the eternal energy which appears as this Universe.   You didn't come into this world; you came out of it.  Like a wave from the ocean.  ~Alan Watts Perspective is one of those interesting things because no matter who you ask, you will always get a different answer.  As the saying goes, no matter how small you slice the cake there will always be two sides.  Lately, I’ve been dancing in the playground of perception, sitting in the stillness of contemplation and looking deeper within myself to find a wiser understanding around this concept.   What does “perspective” really mean for all of us playing in the game of creation? How does it affect our microcosmic selves in our infinitesimal time here on this planet? Especially with the notion that reality is bendable. If perspective is personal and there are as many points of view as there are people on this planet, then what is real?  What is the “absolute truth” if all truth is ultimately relative to the unique observer playing at their life?  I’ve learned...

What To Think During Meditation – Do We Need To Master Our Mental Chatter?

Mental chatter in meditation is something most people feel they have to stop, however, there is an easy way to master this with remarkable results.  Let’s look at this from a different point of view.  Many often wonder what to think during meditation to stop the chatter.  It's not about stopping the mental chatter, it’s about moving outside of your thoughts going through their motions.  It’s like noticing what your brain is thinking and not being personally involved in it.  The quality of your thoughts are important for inner happiness, but to think you cannot meditate with any thoughts is a set up for failure.  It’s like saying you can’t meditate unless it is completely quiet around you.  Yet can you not hear yourself breathing or the pulsation of your blood being pumped through your ears?  If this were the case, only the deaf could meditate.  Your brain is a gift, it's doing its job coming up with new wonderful ways of playing and experiencing life.  Where it can cause a disturbance in your meditation is when you are not...

You Are What You Eat – Part Two

The first segment of this article explored multiple aspects of the old adage “You are what you eat.”  I learned a lot about myself, my eating habits and improving my daily self-care, and I hope you did too! So, what is the next piece?  Understanding that we are not just what we eat, we are also what we integrate.  Take a moment to consider what is being “consumed” daily from our environment, whether it is on a conscious, subconscious, or unconscious level.  From the first morning yawn and the moment our bodies begin to awaken, we are fed a continuous stream of visual, auditory, olfactory and tactile stimuli.  All of these sensations have an impact on our internal environment and to some degree affect our thoughts and emotions.  Ask yourself the following self-assessment questions: Do I feel at peace and joyous with my surroundings, or do I feel overwhelmed, stagnant, or disorganized?  If your response is one of the latter, invest some time to clear out clutter and reorganize your home or work space.  As you are clearing, set an...

How Can Two Minutes of Focus Change Your Life?

How Can Two Minutes of Focus Change Your Life?

Time is the most valuable resource that we all have on this planet.  There are those who never seem to have enough of it, many who don't make the most of it, and yet each day we all have the same amount of it. So why is time so significant?  Well, it's very clear, because once it's used, it's the one commodity that we can never get back. So, when a close friend of mine looked me straight in the eyes and said “Two minutes Kjirsten”, I paused and took a moment to think about what she said before she followed up with this confident and bold statement, “I have convinced myself that I can do ANYTHING for two minutes.”  Later that day I was in the gym happily spinning my legs off, grateful that I have legs to spin in the first place, when I caught myself repeating the same mantra without realizing it, “come on Kjirst, just two more minutes, you've got this.”  I usually finish the gym with sitting in an extra hot steam room and today,...
