Who’s up for a poke at the nuts?

So you ‘should’ leave your comfort zone, right? Sure, you’ve heard it’s a good thing to do, but contemplating it puts knots in your stomach, nightmares in your head, and ultimately, cement shoes where your feet used to be.

I’m pretty sure I can help with that… Continue reading Who’s up for a poke at the nuts?

There Are Two Kinds of People…

two-kinds-of-people_eyesThere are two kinds of people in the world. Actually, a better way to put it would be to say, ‘there are two ways of being in the world’: loving, or being afraid to love. Interestingly, both of them arise out of the same theme: whether you feel your needs will be met or not… Continue reading There Are Two Kinds of People…

Fear of Falling (or is it ‘Flying’?)

at the centreThis is a response to a message I received from LinkedIn asking me about ‘Trends in my Industry’ …

Well, it’s a ‘trend’ that we feel we need to make an effort to directly control things, or we won’t be on the same road our Dreams are. The truth is, though, that by endeavouring to manipulate things, we won’t be. Self-will limits what Spirit can provide, because it limits what we’re capable of believing we Deserve. It begs the question, ‘are you desiring something that’s actually Good for you (and others), or is it possible that you can manifest something Bigger and Better?’ What motivates us isn’t necessarily in our Highest, best interest. ‘Going right’ might get us what we’re conditioned to want, but not what we well and truly Need.

Another trend is fear, of ‘bad news’, of change, a detour, loss, and /or disappointment. In our grasping at what we imagine is ‘valuable’, we miss our lifedream’s inherently invaluable message: that sometimes, our going in circles is right on target. It’s an invitation to becoming a Master… and what do you imagine that’s worth?

Litterbug medicine: eat, sh!t, and die

“don’t litter”, by Shenghung Lin on Flickr

I took a shamanic earthwalk the other day (~ a walkabout vision quest in nature), and afterwards, as part of ‘being the change I want to see in the world’, I was guided to ask, “Why do people litter?”

(Although I realize the better question might be, “Why does it bother me so much?”)

Symbolically, tossing litter is motivated by an unconscious impulse to clear one’s mind. Funny enough, nature can help us with that, but many of us don’t know how to take advantage of what She offers.

Wealth: the value of your lifedream

‘Because it seems I’ve been hurt or experienced such fear while living it, how can my lifedream be valuable? How can something that seems so out of balance in its presentation of grief and pain be worth anything?’

Whether it’s physical, emotional or spiritual, ‘suffering’ is a soul-level tool for (not directly providing, but) accessing information; it focuses and directs our attentions (sometimes by way of diversion).

It motivates Profound self-reflection, which in its right medicine inspires us to recognize and stand up for what we Believe in, regardless of the opinions, judgements or (dis)approval of others or our conditioned selves. With the benefit of those insights, we’re actually able to move past self-pity and cynicism, be instilled with clarity, come into alignment with our own strength and Beauty, and recognize and be motivated by our own Divine personal purpose.
