My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 11 (Synchronicity)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 11

(Synchronicity)

yogachallenge

[ Exactly What I Need ]

Yesterday I did my Yoga practice at-home.  This morning, I was revived, feeling alive and as if I’d not even had a dip in my wellness 24 hours prior.

I was thinking about taking one more day for at-home work, and decided I felt well enough to participate in a 4PM Hatha Yoga Session.

It appears, Monday 4PM Hatha seems to be the right fit for me and my schedule.  Both times I have participated, the teacher I thought would be there was replaced by others.  I suppose he is no longer teaching any more.

Fortunately, my first 4PM Monday Hatha Yoga and today’s class were exactly what I needed.

[ The Experience ]

My life is just one big wave of synchronicity and I am riding it like a champion surfer.  I am also regularly engaged in lucid dreaming, and have been since I was a young girl.  It has only been in the last year that I realized what lucid dreaming is and that I’ve been doing it for most of my life (I’d dare say at least 25 of my 31 Earth Years).

This morning, I awoke from a dream wherein I was doing a lot of pushups.  Like, A LOT, of push ups.

I felt strong and capable.

Flash forward to the Yoga Class today, and our teacher had us doing a LOT more planks than I’ve experienced thus far in this challenge. Yet, I had done them before (in my dream), so I felt strong and capable, slowly lowering myself down with full presence and in relaxed breath, each and every time.

We also did a lot of the work I did in my home-practice last evening, including a variation of the lymphatic bouncing I did.  As we tapped our leg meridians, I was grateful for the abundant synchronicity tying today and yesterday’s practice together seamlessly.

[ The Takeaway ]

If you are breathing, you are doing yoga.

That really stuck out to me in class. I also found I closed my eyes more today than I have this entire 30 Day Yoga Challenge.

I am listening to my SELF. I trust myself and my abilities. (Confidence boost)

And as I do what my body needs, I keep getting more of what it needs without trying.

[ Question For You ]

Do you do Yoga? Why or why not?

‪#‎GentleNudge‬ ] 26Nov2014:
12 Habits of Abundant-Minded Entrepreneurs

brain-78440

Here’s Your Weekly Wednesday #GentleNudge To Get You Over The Hump…
and into the weekend!

[ Stressed and Stuck ]

I often send out emails asking what my clients and audience would like to read about .  I feel there is VALUE in writing, and POWER in writing that speaks to the solving of problems people have.

The other week, I got a response to one of my questions and the person inquired about “How to move away from the stress of NOT Having enough”, essentially in order to have an abundant and exciting business as an Entrepreneur.

So, I’ve dedicated this GentleNudge to help you go from Stressed and Stuck to…

[ Relaxed and Receptive ]

Do you agree the opposite of stress is relaxation? If so, then we are on the same page.

But what do you do to get relaxed? How do you get there? Simply put, you do the opposite of what is causing you stress.

If you are familiar with, or have read, Stephen R. Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, then you know

Click to View/Download a 7 Habits Community Briefing PDF

As you can see, these habits apply to any type of Entrepreneur, because at the heart of every person in business for themselves, is an individual striving to live a happy, healthy, WHOLE, life.

[ Upping the Abundance Vibration ]

Just utilizing ONE of the 7 habits will improve your life, and business, tremendously.  Applying all 7 habits will create the balanced foundation to launch you forward in an amazing way. However, I wanted to include 5 more habits that may or may not be as clearly outlined in the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

From my work with mentors and studying abundant-minded entrepreneurs, I have come to find these five habits boost your abundance, while continually allowing you to relax.

1) Focus on what you want, not what you don’t  want.

You don’t want stress. But the more you stress about not wanting stress, you’ll just get more stress.

Do yourself a favor and focus on feeling relaxed.  Focus on abundance and the energy around that.  The next habit will help you with this…

2) Celebrate and appreciate what you have and are doing.

oprah-500x503

3) Provide Offerings Vs. Services.

Be OK providing Offerings, or Gifts, rather than always providing Services, or Something to be monetarily compensated for.  An Abundance mindset means you know you can share your knowledge freely without a price-tag because you know your worth, and know that sometimes, money isn’t how abundance is measured.  It can be measured in opportunity, new partnerships/affiliations, or providing a workshop or article for free that will be received by someone who will tell millions of paying customers about you!

4) Forgive.

Forgive yourself, everyone and your past experience… Let go of your banana.

5) Believe you are enough and you are perfect, just as you are:

Bonus Life-REmixing Tip: Take 5 minutes a day to sit with yourself and just breathe…

Empower Yourself With This 3-Word Phrase


#GentleNudge 22Oct2014:
Empower Yourself With This 3-Word Phrase
dontknowpanel

Here’s Your Weekly Wednesday #‎GentleNudge To Get You Over The Hump…
and into the weekend!

[ You Do Know Yourself ]

You have more power within you than you give yourself credit for.
To fully tap into this power, start with “I Don’t Know”.

Hint: How you use this phrase can either empower you or diminish your capacity, just the same.

[ The Positive Side of “I Don’t Know” ]

“I Don’t Know” can be a very positive statement to empower you and move you forward.

For instance, would you rather work with someone who pretended to know it all, or someone who was willing to say, “I don’t know” AND help you uncover the answer via reaching out to personal connections or more research?

Personally, I would rather work with the latter of the two.

When you say you don’t know and are willing to find the answer by asking a trusted expert or through additional research, some of the benefits are:

  • strengthened connections which lead to a deeper sense of belonging,
  • gained knowledge and increased brain function,
  • gained respect from peers for being authentic vs blowing smoke up the bum, and
  • being seen as more valuable, and therefore more worthy of higher pay, for example.

What? Being seen as more valuable? Yes, when you become good at being a problem solver for others, you indeed are seen more valuable than if you either just said “I Don’t Know” flatly or said you did know and were later called out on your bluff.

I’m an obsessive-compulsive researcher.  It is in my nature to make things happen.  My father was a rocket scientist, so to figure out a problem is in my DNA; because I am a care-giver, intuitive type, it is also in my DNA to help solve problems for others, as well.

I use “I Don’t Know” to empower myself and others.

[ The Negative Side of “I Don’t Know” ]

incidence-228823_1280

With just the 4 benefits I’ve already listed for using “I Don’t Know”, you’d think there couldn’t possibly be a negative side of the statement.

OK, there really isn’t a negative side, you’re right. 

But there is a diminishing effect of using “I Don’t Know”.

For instance, when I work with my clients in my health coaching practice, I ask a lot of questions to help them dig deep and uncover the root of their problems so that we can work together on solutions to overcome them.  Many times, I hear, “I Don’t Know” to some of the questions, with a complete resolution in the comfort of their answer.

What that says to me: “I’m not ready to move forward because I don’t feel empowered.”  Why? Because my clients have often spent so much time saying “I Don’t Know”, that even if the answer were staring them in the face, they’d not have an answer for fear of being “wrong”, simply because they have been stripped of their power for so long.

[ Reframe “I Don’t Know” ]

So, to move them forward, I’ll usually ask something like, “If you did know, what would you do/say/think about the situation?”

That allows space to focus on coming from a place of empowerment, which will ultimately lead to a more expansive capacity for knowing more than you think you don’t know.

Remember what I said in the beginning of this post?

How will you use “I Don’t Know” as more of an empowered statement to foster growth in your personal and professional life?

Here’s to your health, happiness and WHOLENESS!

[ #GentleNudge ] 15Oct2014: The Secret To Making Your Life Easier


#GentleNudge 15Oct2014:
The Secret To Making Your Life Easier

freedom-307791Celebrate

Here’s Your Weekly Wednesday #‎GentleNudge To Get You Over The Hump…
and into the weekend!

[ The First 100 Years Are The Hardest ]

My grandpa is 91.

He says the first 100 years are always the hardest.  He’s been saying it as long as I can remember.

On the one hand, I find myself laughing because it is a rather hilarious statement.

On the other hand, as I get older, I find myself wondering,

“100 years?! How can I shorten that time?” 

Because I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to spend 100 of my 120 years here trudging through the mud! 🙂  I spent the last 30 years getting myself unglued from the illusion of the Earth, and I’d like to keep it that way!

So, I mulled it over, and

Then one day, it clicked.

There IS a way to shorten the hardship of the years.
(It’s actually so simple, I realized children do it all the time!)

baby-433093_1920

Want to know the secret?

[ You Make Your Life Easier By Celebrating ]

Yup.  As children, even though life is “hard”, we celebrate, clapping and shouting “YAY!” every chance we get in celebration of new things we’ve accomplished or learned.

And generally speaking, our parents and caregivers are there to root us on as we uncover new territory with each new step we make towards progressing into fully-formed human beings.

We celebrate learning to talk, walk, eat, even poop.  We celebrate being alive with birthdays…

Speaking of which, I know that celebrating birthdays are not a part of some religious faiths, and I’ve always known this, but it just dawned on me that to not celebrate is like enslaving one to forgetting the reason we are here on Earth: to be joyful and happy.

Celebration is healthy, and therefore, it brings us more health and well-being.

When we don’t celebrate, even the smallest things like another year being born, to me, it feels like we are actually slapping the Universe in the mouth with un-appreciation.

Plus,

[ There is power in Celebration ]

OK, another soap box moment here:  Just as I don’t condone not celebrating things like your life through a birthday or other similar ceremony or ritual, I also don’t condone the act of celebrating things that shouldn’t be recognized… Example: *ahem* Thanksgiving Day, “aka” Colonization Day.  It’s like giving credit to and celebrating the person who won something, even though they stole the idea from their lab partner.

Just sayin’.

Whether you celebrate or don’t celebrate, (and whether you celebrate with integrity or not), there is POWER in celebration.

So, I say, celebrate with integrity. It will set you free…

[Celebrating vs being grateful]

I am working with a client who asked me the other day, “what is the difference between celebrating and being grateful? How would you specify?”

My answer: Celebrating is just one way to be grateful.  At the same time, when you are grateful you’ll have a lot to celebrate, because when you are grateful you’ll attract more of that to be grateful for!

oprah-500x503

So, in essence what is the REAL secret to making your life easier?

Being grateful.

Ever notice that all roads lead back to gratitude? More over, having an attitude of gratitude?  Could life really be that simple and easy?

[ What if I don’t have anything to celebrate? ]

There’s ALWAYS something to celebrate and be grateful for.  And if you’re not being grateful, I know from personal experience that you’ll stay in the same rut, and even fall deeper into the negative mind matrix… such a slippery slope!

When I’ve been in my deepest darkest depressive states through my teens into my 20s (and I mean depression, not sadness), I’ve found myself not being grateful that I even  had a bed to be depressed in in the first place.

The more I filled my brain with ungrateful thoughts, the deeper my despair became.  But, something would spark in me, or I’d “randomly” get a call from a friend, or some other Gentle Nudge from the Universe that reminded me of the things to celebrate and be grateful for.  I would put effort into making the shift and then more of the good things to celebrate and be grateful for would show up, almost “miraculously”…

alwayssomething

[ Celebrate Life ]

Start with life. Celebrate your life, and the fact that you were a fast swimmer and were birthed. 🙂

If you’re a woman, don’t think of your periods as disgusting, celebrate them as the essence of your beauty.

If you’re a man, don’t think of being without work as emasculating, celebrate the time to discover the essence of your power.

If you’re a teen, don’t think of your life as over when you feel no one gets you.  CELEBRATE that most people will never understand you because you’re f*ckin’ awesome!

Celebrate every small step.  I’ll be 2 years sober in December 2014, but I had a few missteps in the beginning.  Did I get angry? No, I celebrated the process and kept going!

Celebrate your breath, celebrate your heart, celebrate the one friend you have, because truly you don’t need 100 friends who just talk about you behind your back.

[ I am grateful for my grandpa ]

selfiegrandpa

When I felt unloved, unsupported and like I had nothing to be grateful for, my grandpa was always there to inspire and motivate me.  And the same goes for when everything was going well… Grandpa Greene is always there to inspire and motivate me.

Truly, he is the reason I am alive.

Who is that person for you?
(whether they are alive or not)

If they are still living, Let them know as soon as you can.

Because just as good as you feel to celebrate, people love to know they are appreciated.  You’ll not only shave off hardship time for yourself, but you’ll also do the same for them.

Remember what my grandpa told me in the beginning of this post? You now hold the secret to re-writing that statement for yourself!

Here’s to your health, happiness and WHOLENESS!
