I would like to invite my friends and new friends to the Truth. We are all here together whether we welcome this feeling or not, we can all bring something to the table that can have an impact on another person’s life. You may not even know this person but yet your kindness, tone and expression could become someone’s very saviour. Exactly what they needed to hear, at exactly the right time is a gift from the divine.
This can also go the other way around, if you have nothing positive or kind to say that is okay just merely reflect on the images and kind words written here for you. I welcome you all to my journey, my truth, my story my ever after continuing healing process. I too am scared to begin to write this publicly but we all have the power to end this sentence. or continue it,
When I chose Truth as my very first blog to write about many months ago I did not realize the impact of lies and deceitful thinking which blocked my views of a true perspective. What I mean by this is simply, my body, mind and spirit were out of alignment. I went digging on a search, on a tremendous mission to find the truth that was inside of me. What I discovered was fascinating, I judged others because of my own fears and insecurities. This continuous cycle of blame and judgement took me through a whirlwind of emotions that had I known at the time, probably would have stopped but something continued to search for the inner truth in the very core of my being. Who was I? What is my purpose? Where do I fit in? Do I even belong here? These are some of the questions I started to contemplate.
Fear is the ultimate enemy, it holds us in anger and rage and destroys relationships and families. There are seven core centres within our bodies and in these energy centres we carry the emotions of: fear, guilt, anger, indifference and shame.
We are in a society where a lot of people are starting to awaken to this new concept of surrendering, detachment, letting go… whichever you would like to call it. We are finally starting to understand that the world needs less control and more letting go.
When we really look at this concept, it can be quite difficult for most of us because we have grown accustom to the lifestyles that keep us safe. Following a routine keeps us feeling safe and it allows us to feel secure in a world that we know nothing about, a world that is so full of fear that we continue to grasp onto the concept that we actually have something to hold on to when we really don’t.
Let me give you an example of what surrendering has looked like for me over the last couple of years, not only has it benefited me in the moment although different the feeling is freeing and it’s the basis as to where freedom comes from. If we want to be free in a world that tries to keep us captive, how do we get the upper hand? It is that less is more mentality, it’s been allowing others to go their own way and knowing my security lies within my ability to change and continue to work on myself. There is something so interesting that happens when we let go of fear and start to feel love and exude the confidence that has always been there. People start to respect you and they actually want to “be like you”. They want to know your secret, they want someone that they can follow, they want a leader and that is just who they are looking for, someone who isn’t afraid to take on whatever is thrown their way. We will never feel completely safe in the world if we hang onto things, items, people, the indefinites in life. Things are going to come in and out of your life but the only thing that will always be there is you.
When the word meditation comes to mind, what does it bring to you?
Frustration? Self criticism? Judgmental thinking? That we should do more or maybe that we just don’t even really understand where to start with meditation.
No two people are the same, just as no two snowflakes are the same, the intricate details and underlying depth of our unique frames both inside and out are evident that we are completely original and unique. With that in mind, it tells us that we each have our own unique special gift to bring to the world. How do we find this gift of passion and fire that can ignite our creativity and expand our minds to inspire us to our full potential?
The answer is simple….meditation. Meditation, unlike anything else is the only method that allows us to come up with new ideas, inspirations and inventions.
Here are a few simple ways to get started with meditation:
Find a quiet, calm space where you cannot be disturbed as this time belongs to you.
Start with your eyes open, with a soft gaze looking at something beautiful that brings joy to your heart.
Have a glass of water and a candle lit to set your intention, you may play soft music if this is helpful for you.
Bring your awareness to your breath, feel it enter your body and observe its presence, you may wish to give it a lighter clear colour on the breath in and a darker colour on your breathe out.
There are four different positions to meditate in. The first is seated with your back straight and head sitting slightly foreword, the second is lying on your back with your palms facing upward, the third is standing while you feel the weight of your feet plant into the ground and fourthly walking meditation is great for allowing exercise and peace of mind, a good tip is to count your steps up to 10 then start again.
When we feel lonely, we often feel that no one understands us, no one loves us and that we are not good enough which puts our ego at a very fragile state. If you fall under the category of superiority than you have grandiose thoughts of yourself and if you fall into inferiority you suffer from low self esteem and insignificance.
We all have our own strengths and passions in this world, no one else will ever have gone through your experiences. Express You’re uniqueness, we all have a special gift leading us towards happiness.
You are loved, you matter and you are never truly alone…
