Just do it!

Nike says “Just do it.”  They are right.  But how do you “Just do it.” when you are afraid of making mistakes?  The stress can be overwhelming with all the responsibilities you have.  No one seems to understand.  No one seems to care.

Just do it  nike center of oneness fear action

I, too, got stuck in a bit of fear this week.  I run a website development firm.  We also produce software.  The funding that goes into these projects can be staggering.  After all, we are no small ma and pa shop anymore.  I have a staff to feed.  Every decision I make can affect the company including “What’s for lunch?”.   You think I’m over exaggerating.  I may be.  Actually, I know I am.  But when you are a business owner, it’s no longer lunch that’s a concern.  It’s the 10 billion things that can happen relating to that simple lunch.  The productivity can be down for the day after a company lunch.  The morale can stay up, as long as the managers treat the staff fairly.  Or will it cross over to friendships that will eventually turn into an HR issue?  What if someone’s having an office romance and the date didn’t go so well the night before?  Will that affect the energy of the whole office?  So, no.  Lunch is no longer just hanging with the guys and have a beer.

As we are looking to launch a prototype business community site, I see myself (in slow motion) refining my marketing plan over and over again instead of taking the action of “Just do it.”  The marketing plan is simply a distraction, you see.  It’s busy work.  It’s safe to be in the planning stages.  It’s safe to fantasize about success.  Taking the action means I’m putting myself out there.  It means I will be faced with potential rejection.  It means I may have to realize that the product is a big failure.  So, yeah.  It feels much better staying in the safe zone.  I know exactly what I will be getting.  Zero.  Am I happy about it?  Not necessarily.  But I’d feel safe.

So, how do you get out of this vicious cycle?

1.  Stop what you are doing IMMEDIATELY.  In my case, I stopped refining my marketing plan.

2.  Remind yourself what your goal(s) are.  In my case, to launch a business community where we can help one another with business expansion.

3.  Remove the obstacle.  In my case, me.  I’m the one stopping myself from getting what I want.  By the way, this will raise many debates but the obstacle is ALWAYS ourselves.

4.  Know you’re in the space of Abundance and you deserve to have ALL you wish.  In my case, I’ve been wanting an online business resource center for years. Why not now?  I’m ready.  I have a team behind me.  I have business affiliates who will back my project.  I’m definitely ready.

5.  Choose Differently.  In my case, continue to write my marketing plan isn’t exactly getting me anywhere.  The magic is in execution.  So, despite fear and doubt, I choose to take action.  I choose to “Just do it.”

Now, don’t think you have to take a giant step forward to shift your vibration.  Me writing this blog post instead of working on my marketing plan is already shifting my energy.  This minor gesture is HUGE in the energy world.  I’m telling my Higher Self that I’m ready and WILLING.  It’s time to make my dream into reality.  So just do it.  You deserve everything you want in Life, plus more!

Connection with the Universal Energy- Once again!

Afsi asked me tonight “Why haven’t you been sharing your thoughts lately on the site?”. My easy brush- off answer was “Got busy with our business.” My second excuse was “I’m having a hard time traveling in and out of this 3rd Dimensional world.” The Truth is that I’ve been neglecting what’s important- the grounding force in my life– my connection to Mother Earth, my connection with the Universal energy that has brought me so much joy, and my connection with you all. I simply had a moment (a year long moment- but who’s counting) of clouded judgement that 3rd Dimensional tasks are more important than my heart, body and soul.

Pushing off Spiritual commitment seems to be so easy when there’s a long to-do list each day! I have, after all, been communicating with the Universe every day in my own way- lighting a candle, saying a prayer. But I’ve forgotten I signed up to be here serving the World in this lifetime through information sharing and communications.

I have to be honest and say that I have been feeling very unsettled lately. There is this nagging uneasy and unfulfilled feeling running through me. I thought I was just stressed out. I thought I was just fully back living in the 3rd Dimensional life. However, Afsi’s question reminded me that we feel this way when we are not walking our Path. As I write this blog post sharing my experiences, the uneasy feeling is lifting right out of me. A sense of freedom washes over me. I feel calm, happy and psychic again.

I rely on good friends like Afsi to remind me what’s important in life. Not a growing business. Not a staff I need to worry about. All that will sort itself out when I’m grounded, as the leader of our company. I am the force of this organization. and I choose to trust that I’m backed by Infinity. All great things will follow when I’m in a good place. Therefore, I’m back on my Path after taking the scenic route. It was beautiful but nothing beats Freedom and Joy!

Changing Behavior- How to stop what’s not working and choose differently…

One of the hardest things to do is changing our behavior when things aren’t working out for us.  We get tired of the same old patterns, whether it’s a dysfunctional relationship or constantly running out of money.  While knowing deeply things aren’t working out, we feel like there’s no way out.  We point to the other person (or situation) to seek fault when we have full control is what we are willing and not willing to accept in our own Life. Changing behavior is easy to say but hard to do sometimes, isn’t it? Well, there’s one thing we often skip  in our “transformational” process before we can choose differently.  Bob is right on the money with this comedy skit…

As I watch this comedy skit with Bob Newhart, part of me was laughing super hard.  The other part of me felt it was striking too close to home.  Over the years, I’ve grown used to the constant changes in life, business and my Spiritual journey.  I have solid evidence that change is good.  However, my husband just recently started his Awakening process.  and he’s really having a hard time embracing he has the power to design his destiny and change his reality, instantly!  For an engineer, he needs proof before he’s willing to proceed in choosing differently.  As much as I want to be supportive, knowing full well the initial Awakening process can be daunting, there are many moments where I want to tell my dear husband to “Stop it!  Just Stop it!” as Bob Newhart did with his patient.

First, let me assure you hesitation is normal.  Our own pimple always feels bigger than it really is.  Our problem always seems harder than it appears.  It’s easy to tell someone to choose differently but it seems impossible when you’re going through it yourself.   It’s okay.  You are no different than the rest of us.  We are humans.  It is natural for us to second guess ourselves, creating internal confusion.  It’s our human way of holding on what’s not working for us.  After all, it is safe.  It is what we know.  Changes invites in the unknown factor.  It can feel scary.

The reality is that the old patterns and behaviors that are no longer serving us today once protected us.  There’s no right or wrong.  We must honor that they served us well when we needed them.  At the same time, we must embrace the fact it’s time to retire these behaviors if they do not fit into our new paradigm as we Awaken to Infinite Possibilities.

When I see myself getting wrapped into the loop of resistance, I do tell myself to “Stop it!  Just stop it!”   It works.  Sometimes I have to shock my system a bit before I can take a deep breath and choose differently.  Once I’ve calmed down, I’d proceed with setting new Intentions asking the Universe to show me the way.  Trying to protect the old is the same as resisting the new abundance coming to ya!

It’s never about changing the behavior that matters.  What matters is your willingness to retire what’s not working for you and embrace new opportunities.  This willingness will take you to new dimensions, shift your energy instantly.  Guaranteed!  It will open up to a world of abundance, peace and love.  Choose differently today!  If you notice yourself stuck in the loop of “what if’s”, imagine Bob Newhart telling you to “Stop it! Just Stop it!”  because there’s a whole new life waiting for you to enjoy.  Remember, what’s happening now isn’t working for you anyway.  Try something new.  If that doesn’t work, you can always choose to change it back.

Can Wealth and Spirituality co-exist?

During my Awakening, one of the biggest questions I had was: Can wealth and Spirituality co-exist? 

My Awakening was both shocking and intense. I literally woke up one morning and felt like my world was turned upside down. All the wealth I accumulated and worked hard for didn’t make sense to me any longer. The marriage I adored felt like a trap. The world I lived in seemed like Barbie’s dreamland.  I ended up locking myself in my room for three days wondering about the meaning of Life.

In my pursuit of Happiness, I neglected my family and friends.  I lost interest in all of my businesses and investment properties.  Consequently, I lost nearly all of my material possession. Once a wealthy, driven die-hard Entrepreneur, I was now someone who felt lost, deflated and counting pennies.

As I went  on a one-year Soul Searching mission studying under Spiritual teachers and Gurus, I was almost proud of the fact that I was poor and detached from money.  As an Entrepreneur-at-heart, I had to question why a Spiritual person must live in poverty to feel peaceful.  What if I love both?  Is there a balance?

Since one of my biggest joys in my life is being able to write large donation checks to support various charitable organizations, I wondered the validity of having to live in poverty while being Spiritual.

As I live a Spiritualist lifestyle, I realized one thing: Money is not everything, just like Spirituality isn’t everything.  But both can supercharge a lifestyle, if used for good.  Money is just a form of energy.  It’s a manifestation of how we feel on the inside.  When I feel good, my life is naturally full of wealth and abundance in every area.

When there’s money in my possession, there is so much more I could do for society!  But I do not need it to start doing good.  I can start helping today.  When I’m feeling zen is also when I can do quite a bit for others.  But I don’t need to start feeling compassionate to offer compassion.  Being rich is not a bad thing unless we make it to be.  Money doesn’t take away from our core values.  It doesn’t change who we are but it will magnify who we already are.

The biggest Gift I received from my Soul Discovery Journey is that I now understand the power of living in the space of Infinite Possibilities.  My Journey back to my Earthly life taught me how I can create harmony between my business savvy and my Intuitive healing nature.   I don’t have to choose between Spirituality and money.  I can have both.

No doubt if you are here, you’re already a giving person.  Money can provide the opportunity for an abundant effortless lifestyle so you have the Freedom to do whatever you want, whenever you want and however you want.  The new found Freedom can inspire you to continue your Light work in peace, love and harmony.  Start embracing wealth.  Start living abundantly!  Namaste.

Awakening Discomfort- Why do we have a hard time investing in ourselves?

Last week, I introduced a product called DrinkinMate . Something that has helped me and many around me relieve Awakening discomforts.  Yes, the yucky feelings in the stomach, the body aches, and the dreaded overall fatigue.

Quite a few people emailed me and told me that they no longer can deal with the intense physical discomfort associated with Awakening.  They know they want the relief but not sure why they find every excuse not to try this product, especially when I personally recommended it.

After receiving these emails and quick conversations, I realized that many are having a difficult time investing in themselves, which prompted this email. So, why is it that we can feel so uncomfortable, yet not able to invest in a solution that’s right in front of us?  an instant relief that’s handed to us on a silver platter?  In theory, it can’t get any easier than this right?  Wrong!  The mind can play tricks on us, if we allow it.

Let’s do the math here so we get the obvious out of the way. The product is $13, less than $1 per tablet. We have no problem spending $300 on a pair of shoes for our kids or $50 on meditation CD’s so it can’t be the money.  If I tell you to give me $1 to relieve you of discomfort, you’d gladly hand it over!  So, why won’t we invest in ourselves?  I learned a lot while coaching clients throughout the years (and through my own Journey) that:

1. Sometimes we are not ready to let go of discomfort (physical, emotional or Spiritual) because subconsciously we feel misery is all we deserve in life. You may fight this one hard. You may even want to email me right now and tell me I don’t know what I’m talking about. If that’s the case, I’ve hit a nerve haven’t I?  The fact is that we don’t like investing in ourselves.  It feels un-natural.  We have been taught it’s rude to give to ourselves and to believe in ourselves. We are givers. We are only supposed to give. We don’t receive. The Truth is if we are true givers, we will give unconditionally and it won’t matter who we are giving to- this includes ourselves. Remember, giving cannot be done without someone on the other end to receive it.  The 2 go hand in hand.  Choose to give to yourself today!

2. Sometimes we can’t accept that the answers were provided so easily. Yes. Life is that simple. However, we aren’t always ready to Receive.  Not everyone opens my emails. If you didn’t last week, perhaps you weren’t ready to hear this solution and that’s okay.  If you opened it today, you may be ready.  The Universe work in mysterious ways.  Everything happens at exactly the right Moment.  Answers are given when we are ready to receive them.  Good things not only come when you work hard, good things come when we feel GOOD!  Positives attract positives. Healthy bodies hold positive energy.  We have the answers and the power right in our hands. It’s a matter of choosing which path we want to take– the Effortless route without pain and discomfort, or the difficult route where we live in suffering. If this resonates with you, the question is what’s so attractive to the negative path of suffering that’s stopping you from Receiving all things positive?  Do we actually feel better, more powerful when we suffer?  Because we are actually strong enough to endure the misery?  Something is keeping you on that path and perhaps it’s time to travel on a new route, the easier route!

3. Sometimes we refuse to invest in our healthy, because we’d no longer have excuses not to move forward and do all we want in life. Not feeling well can provide a comforting easy excuse not to do what you signed up to do here on Earth- make a difference. Come on.  We have all called in sick to work.  We pretend to not feel good for some much needed mental rest.  Honestly, there are days I rather be a regular Joe who didn’t sign up as a Lightworker. But I do know now that whenever I want to, I can take a break. I do not need to be a Lightworker 24/7. and I do not need to be a saint 24/7. That’s not what Life is about.  I certainly do not need to feel ill or bad to have an excuse to relax.  I can choose to relax while feeling good!

I’m not here to force DrinkinMate on you. But if you are on the fence about feeling better with these Awakening symptoms, I urge you to try it. Not because of anything else but to embrace investing in your health. Invest in feeling better. Invest in you. It’s time.  Pay attention to how you feel in this process of choosing “feeling better”.  Here are some patterns that may occur…

~~ If you’re having a hard time pressing the “buy” button, you may be having a hard time “committing” to your health and having too much fun committing to feeling bad.  Ask what’s feeling so good about feeling bad?  That will open up the gateway to internal honesty and help you see how you’ve formed an attachment to things that don’t serve you.  There’s no good or bad in this.  Remember the goal is to feel good in life, not to criticize!

~~ If you find yourself wondering what else you can spend this money on, the Truth is you may be feeling guilty for investing in yourself.  Choose to change it because you’re worth it, no matter what the price is!  Make it a habit to Give to yourself each day.

~~ If you’re questioning whether this product will work, 2 things may be happening:  Either you’re not uncomfortable enough in your situation and you need to hit the bottom before you make a decision to get out.  Or maybe more work needs to be done in the faith department when the answer is provided to you.  The more we trust the more answers show up in Life. The Truth is not everything will work 100% of the time.  But giving up and not trying at all is for sure an 100% failure rate.

Give it a try. Feel better the next day!  Note:  This product was originally designed for symptoms relating to excess drinking; symptoms such as queasy or sensitive stomach, dehydration, fatigue and aches.  However, my research indicates that our cells go through the same type of trauma when experiencing Consciousness Awakening. This special Guava Leaf Extract formula has definitely helped me and my friends in the relief of those lousy feelings.  Enjoy!  http://www.ameriwellproducts.com/shop/drinkin-mate-effervescent/?ap_id=bottomlinetara

Feel better the next day!
