Soul lives in connection

"We all seek Soul. While Soul is always present, it doesn�t appear in our lives automatically. Soul requires our attention and reflection. Offering our respectful regard to the Soul is a way of loving it, caring for it, nurturing it."

-- Benjamin Shield and Richard Carlson
How do we experience soul in our lives?

It�s so simple! STOP AND PAY ATTENTION! Soul lives in connection. Whenever we are present and conscious, soul emerges.

To easily experience soul, find something you love to do and immerse yourself in it. Consciously savour a favourite piece of music. Consciously enjoy a walk in nature. Really experience your breathing and the pounding of your heart as you exercise. Really be present to your partner, your kids, your pet or another, and you will know the contentment of soul.

"I think that whenever soul is present, it�s because what you�re doing, whom you�re with, where you are, evokes love without your thinking about it. You are totally absorbed in the place or person or event, without ego and without judgment."

-- Jean Shinoda Bolen

Seek the inner cause of problems

"When you arrive at your future, will you blame your past?"

-- Robert Half


What holds you back from being and doing more? In your journal, list what you believe is holding you back.

Have you blamed people or factors outside of yourself? It's important to understand that ALL problems are rooted inside us. Even the blocks that appear to be outside of us are only reflecting back an issue we have inside that we have not yet owned. Once we address our inner issue, the outer situation no longer troubles us.

The buck always stops with us. We step into our power when we accept responsibility for our lives.

"The most self-destructive thought that any person can have is thinking that he or she is not in total control of his or her life. That's when, �Why me?� becomes a theme song."

-- Roger Dawson
"...look at that word blame. It's just a coincidence that the last two letters spell the word me. But that coincidence is worth thinking about. Other people or unfortunate circumstances may have caused you to feel pain, but only you control whether you allow that pain to go on. If you want those feelings to go away, you have to say: �It's up to me.�"

-- Arthur Freeman
"Don't make excuses -- make good."

-- Elbert Hubbard

Know your motives

"As long as one keeps searching, the answers come."

-- Joan Baez
Why? Why? Why?

Asking ourselves 'why?' helps us delve deeply into our main motives -- why we do what we do. This process helps us go deeper into our reasoning, habits and unconscious beliefs. Once we become aware of our underlying motives, we can choose to change them, if we wish.

Regularly ask yourself, "Why am I ...?" Listen closely for the answer that surfaces in your mind, and write it down. Now look at your answer and ask why again. Continue with this process to reach the true source of your motivation.

"Men are more accountable for their motives, than for anything else ...."

-- Archibald Alexander

Embrace the positive and negative
in wholeness

"Only when we can love hell will we find heaven."

-- Unknown source
People often view the spiritual path as a search for the light. In truth, spirituality asks us to bring light and darkness together in wholeness. And in fact, this is the only possible solution. In our world of duality, any effort to focus all attention on the light only serves to increase the power of the darkness. Our aim is not to deny or reject anything but to embrace it all.

"When you are able to contain both the light and dark together, that is a very enlightening state. It means that you no longer have to choose one experience over another. You do not have to choose love OR hate, blame OR forgiveness, sadness OR joy, anger OR openheartedness. You are no longer polarized; no particular feeling boxes you in and keeps you from the light of true self. You then have access to the full range of human experiences you came into this life to embrace."

-- Martia Nelson

When we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

~Marianne Williamson~

The Inner Journey

Spend time with your soul

"Be mindful of how you approach time. Watching the clock is not the same as watching the sun rise."

-- Sophia Bedford-Pierce
What would your soul consider a waste of time?

To a soul, the only real time is right NOW. Not the future or the past. It lives in connecting deeply with the rich experience of each moment. Through awareness we can be in touch with our authentic self and how it perceives all of the energies and guidance around and within us.

"Chronos is clocks, deadlines, watches, calendars, agendas, planners, schedules, beepers. Chronos is time at her worst. Chronos keeps track. ...Chronos is the world's time. Kairos is transcendence, infinity, reverence, joy, passion, love, the Sacred. Kairos is intimacy with the Real. Kairos is time at her best. ...Kairos is Spirit's time. We exist in chronos. We long for kairos. That's our duality. Chronos requires speed so that it won't be wasted. Kairos requires space so that it might be savored. We do in chronos. In kairos we're allowed to be ... It takes only a moment to cross over from chronos into kairos, but it does take a moment. All that kairos asks is our willingness to stop running long enough to hear the music of the spheres."

-- Sarah Ban Breathnach
"He who postpones the hour of living rightly is like the rustic who waits for the river to run out before he crosses."

-- Horace

More Words To Live By

Discover the treasures inside

"You wander from room to room
Hunting for the diamond necklace
That is already around your neck!"

-- Jalal-Uddin Rumi

Peace, joy, health and well-being can only be found inside us. They exist within us now, waiting to be discovered. Yet we tend to look to the outside world to satisfy our needs and longings.

Our outer life reflects back to us the way we think, feel and behave. The outer world is all effects. Go to the source inside for all of life's treasures.

How are you searching for peace and contentment outside of yourself?

"Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude."

-- Denis Waitley

"It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere."

-- Agnes Repplier

A wonderful and Powerful Inspirational Message:

I'm taking a journey down life's pathway into a world unknown to me.
Unsure of the directions I must take but one thing I know for sure; I'm to walk by faith and not by sight as the world is known to do. I decided to walk down this life's pathway when I answered the Father's call from above.

Everything going so smooth, I asked my Father to draw me close and make me more like His Son. Then all of a sudden my world turned upside down: test and trails that came my way and I didn't understand why? There is no way possible to walk this life's pathway that I have chosen for Him.

So discouraged and ready to give up from all the hurt and pain in my life, I know I have failed: it seems nothing turns out right. With tears in my eyes and with all of my heart, I cried out, "Father! This is not what I wanted nor is this what I asked for. Can't you see there is too much pain?"

Then I hear His soft gentle voice telling me, "Through the test and trails that I have sent into your life is to teach you to lean and trust in Me. Through test and trails I draw you close and make you more like MY Son." Now I'm beginning to understand why.

Still with all the test and trails I stumble, fall and at times I just want to give up. I still wonder why it has to be so hard; why can't I just run and hide? There is too much pain and heartache to continue on a journey down this life's pathway no matter how hard I try.

Again I hear that soft and gentle voice of my Father saying to me, "Don't be discouraged and don't give up for I have brought you this far. I have never left you, my child, and I will never leave you alone. I will go with you each step and every mile of the way, until your work is done."

With His words so gentle and softly spoken, now encourages me to stand tall. Through test and trails still come my way I know that I'm not alone and my strength is renewed each and every day. So no matter what may come my way, I will draw close to my Father and become more like His Son. Then when my journey down this life's pathway finally comes to an end; I know without a doubt, I will stand with Them through out all eternity. ~Connie L. Burchett copyright used with permission

Creating New Experiences Through Meditation: How can you change what you believe when the experiences you have had have convinced you otherwise?

To reach your goal of happiness,you have to act as though the following statement is true: Everything that happens to me is the best possible thing that can happen to me.

Your actions create an energy that draws in the necessary ingredients of your project you have ventured into.

Here's another article on: Fear, Anxiety and
overcoming them

How to be Free from Fears, Worries, and Shyness by Andrew McCole

Many people are crippled by fears and phobias. Most people worry what other people think about them, and this causes many of these people to avoid social interactions. The majority of people are also plagued by fruitless worries and stresses.

What is fear? Fear is a natural response designed to protect us from danger. However, it has become much more complicated nowadays. It is more than just instinct. Most of the fear we experience is irrational and imaginary. Sometimes we don't know why it is there. This is called anxiety. When a specific anxiety starts to gain more control over us, and becomes more severe and persistent it is called a phobia. Phobias always seem irrational to those that are not experiencing them, but when you are in the middle of a phobia the fear can be totally overwhelming. Shyness can have the same effect.

Panic is the most extreme form of fear. All conscious control is lost. You may feel you cannot breathe and may be hyperventilating. Reassurance is of little help.

Why Do You Get Fears and Phobias?

Fears, phobias and lack of confidence are NOT a sign of weakness or lack of courage. They are nothing to be ashamed about. We all get them. They are simply the effect of your subconscious mind trying to protect you. It wants to keep you away from what it perceives as danger. Occasionally this is a useful mechanism, but it is more often an over-exaggerated response.

The subconscious mind does not work on a rational level. That is why even when we know there is no rational reason to be afraid, the fear takes over anyway. This can weaken you, harm your career and cripple your social life. It is a constant obstacle. Unfortunately, the subconscious doesn't care too much about logic.

To complicate matters further, each time a fear is experienced the more the subconscious mind accepts it as normal.

How to Overcome Fear, Worry and Shyness

You now realize that all the ingredients of the problem exist in the SUBCONSCIOUS MIND. So, obviously the solution lies in dealing with the subconscious. Makes sense, right?

People try numerous methods to cure themselves of fear, from medications and conscious desensitization to discovering the root cause of their fears. The downside of these therapies is that they don't focus on a subconscious level and therefore show very poor results. It can be like trying to clean a spot off a window when it is actually on the other side. No amount of scrubbing will remove it. Instead you have to attack it from the right side.

It is pointless to try to conquer a subconscious problem in the conscious mind! A conscious 'pep-talk' might sound nice, but unless the subconscious is changed the behavior will ultimately stay the same. If you don't deal with the subconscious you could well be sabotaging your success.

It is clear that the subconscious must be dealt with. This may mean it needs re-educating or desensitizing. There may be an emotionally traumatic incident festering away in the subconscious that needs to be resolved. This may even be hidden from your conscious recall.

The safest, fastest and surest (and in my opinion, the only) way to change the subconscious is with the aid of hypnosis. Hypnosis gives us access to the subconscious in a controlled, relaxed environment - perfect for dealing with fears and confidence problems.

With hypnosis, your subconscious can directly experience and accept a new perspective regarding the fear triggers. This means that instead of responding with fear, shyness, worry, panic and other unpleasant symptoms you can instead feel relaxed, secure, confident and comfortable. Fear can be turned into personal power! Can you imagine that?

You don't need to imagine! Everyone can easily be hypnotized, and my advanced techniques can enable you to start a new, happy life, free from irrational fears and nervousness. You already have confidence, security and control, whether you express them freely or not. Hypnosis is the ideal tool to make these feelings a natural part of your behavior - ALL of the time.

Make sure hypnotist is properly qualified. Ask for details of their training, and keep in mind that a degree in medicine or psychology does not include hypnosis training.

I am sure you can now see that hypnosis is THE way to change subconscious behavior. And positively changing subconscious behavior is one of the best ways to achieve both happiness and success.
