The first part of you is your perspective. Your decisions that you make are based upon the view that you choose to take. Leading with the heart is the idea of perceiving things as the soul perceives things - from a unified perspective.
The problem is the idea that we must lead with our mind to be "rational," and that we have associated the concept of perceiving things in a unified sense as ungrounded or idealistic or irrational. This is the perspective of not having experienced viewing items from the heart's perspective and not having made critical decisions with that perspective being the dominating perspective.
The solution is to allow the mind to relax into it's the more comfortable role of observing and reacting - not projecting out expected values without regard for the more easeful and many times unseen route.
Neurologically speaking, your heart is your brain as much as your mind is your brain.
As the central organ in your physical body, the heart is the FIRST organ that...
Sounding like you know what you are talking about is as easy as admitting when you don't know what you're talking about.
We tend to "pretend" because we are afraid of what someone else thinks. It's important to realize that we are ALWAYS playing a role; we are always performing a character. The more that we judge ourselves because of the nature of the character we are playing at that time, the more inauthentic we feel.
The solution is to accept that we are always performing a role, and as you bring more of yourself into that role, the more you will sound (and look) like you know what you are talking about.
Boom. Wake up. You're in a simulated reality, right now. You've got an avatar, and you can express that avatar however you'd like. Some things feel better than others, and you'll use that feeling to determine better what that character evolves into.
This is not far from the truth.
Where we see resistance in ourselves is when we feel like what we are...
Author Elizabeth Stone said, "Making the decision to have a child - it is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body."
As spiritual parents, it is our job to do much more than potty train, pack bag lunches, and choose a discipline style; we recognize that our children come to this life with their unique spiritual inspiration to express. In a world full of pressure and distraction, how can we support the spiritual awakening of our children? Here are five guidelines to get you started.
1) Follow your child's spiritual inspiration: If you want to help your child maintain their innate connection to spirit, you must support them in following their intuition. With young children, this includes a wide range of cues. If your child feels uncomfortable with a specific person or place, respect that. In so doing, you teach them to trust their gut instincts and maintain their connection to their inner voice.
Their inspiration may...
This SUPER Full Moon is giving us exactly what we need at this time.
Ever after that one sentence, I know many of you are feeling skeptical lol.
"Vic, are you living under a rock brother?
Have you been watching what's going on?"
There's a great book I just finished reading called "The Go-Giver."
One of the main characters, Pindar, would always say…
"Looks can be deceiving… and most of the time… they are."
A couple of years ago, I took my family to this nature preserve in Las Vegas.
There was a nice little stream, lush vegetation (rare for Las Vegas), and a beautiful assortment of colorful flowers.
As my family and I were riding our bikes along the path, we noticed an area that didn't look so good.
In fact, you could easily tell there had been a fire, and most of the trees and plants in this particular area were black and dead.
There was a sign, however, that stated…
What is spiritual awakening? A spiritual awakening is when a person's attitude towards the world and life in general, shifts and perhaps changes forever.
But what does spiritual mean, and how does it relate to a spiritual awaking? Spiritual means something that speaks to your soul or psyche that isn't necessarily material or physical. So, simply put, a spiritual awakening is a process of change in your beliefs or within your spiritual life.
People usually live their lives however they want to, or however they were taught. They have their values and use them as their guide to living, and there isn't necessarily anything wrong with that. But, often there comes a time when something happens, and a person’s psychic awakening is triggered. While some people may be lucky to go through it without pain or sorrow, many have to suffer first before they can see the light.
Spiritual transformation is sometimes associated with discomfort because it can put a person in...
What if you find that special someone who you wanted to spend the rest of your life with? Wouldn’t it be nice if you had a job you love that also helps you achieve financial independence? Learning how to manifest what our heart truly desires is a gift, and if you could have this gift, wouldn’t you want to possess it?
What if you could finally realize your purpose, find your inner joy, and feel fulfilled from the inside? It is your heart’s innermost desires that help you become the person that you are today. Although positive affirmations from the people around you can help you find a sense of stability, it is through grounding through meditation that will truly make all the difference.
All that is required to manifest everything that you desire is a quiet moment of meditation. Find some time every day where you can find some inner peace. This process goes beyond what your conscious mind is telling you. The Law of Attraction is activated...
When was the last time you felt frustrated? Do you still remember how you felt at that time? Did you think about giving up altogether? More importantly, how long did the feeling last?
Perhaps you are currently struggling with the feelings of frustration with the situations, things, or people in your life. Has that feeling lingered for so long that you can no longer remember the last time you actually felt satisfied?
Frustrations seem to have become a natural part of us. It is the kind of negative emotion that keeps people from operating at their best. But why do people get so frustrated? What could be fueling such negativity?
One of the biggest ways to decrease your daily frustrations is through managing expectations, and managing expectations begins by understanding what makes us feel agitated in the first place.
According to Luis Von Ahn, “Frustration is a matter of Expectation.”
If you look back and think about the times when you felt...
You are most likely a healthy adult who is responsible enough to take care of your relationships, finances and prepare for your future. You are surrounded by people in your life who provide you with the care and support that you need, and you enjoy doing different things both for work and for pleasure.
But are you happy?
As it turns out, even with this incredibly beautiful life scenario, there is probably still a part of you that struggles with anxiety, frustration, stress, and anger. Life can sometimes be overwhelming and frustrating even though you take a breath and see that you have what you need. All of these feelings, combined together, can make you feel habitually uneasy.
So how do you go about life to find that sense of peace from within?
Be mindful and meditate.
Morning meditation is a great way to help you start your day with the right mindset. Although some people may choose to perform their mindfulness activities at night after a full day...
When was the last time you engaged in a play or something really fun? It’s easy to think that play is only for kids. Adults have "more important things" at hand that are more pressing, right? Chances are it's been a while since the last time you really did something strictly for play.
Most parents would say that they engage their children in play and learn activities because they know how vital it is for children to have fun. In fact, childhood games revolve a lot on something educational and fun at the same time. But can imaginative play be good for adults, too? Will it benefit older people to indulge themselves in games?
Just because you are above thirty or are already in your late fifties, you can still reap the benefits of engaging in activities that are not about work, or any responsibility for that matter. In fact, when you learn to give in to the idea of playing a game (not WINNING a game), the more that it will benefit your family life, your job, and your mood in...
The human mind can get easily distracted. One moment you are thinking about work, then another minute, your thoughts shift to thinking about the vacation plans you’ve always wanted to push for but just couldn’t. Indeed, the mind could think about a million other things in a matter of minutes with so much going on right now, making one’s thoughts more confusing than it has ever been.
The thinking never stops. Even while at rest, the human mind thinks about a lot of things. For some people, their mind wonders about the possibilities that they find themselves in. Whether it is taking on the new job offer in another company or getting married and having kids, the mind hardly ever stops thinking.
There are others whose minds wander in a daydream. They stop and take a break from the work that they do, thinking about what to cook for dinner or what it would be like just to leave the city and never look back.
Whether you find yourself...
