Bad things can happen to anyone, both in their personal and professional lives. Sometimes, relationships, no matter how hard you work on them, just end. Significant people in your life could die, and they leave you brokenhearted.
There are days when you don't want to go to the office, knowing that a colleague will be getting the promotion you wished for yourself. Sometimes, the burden of doing a lot in the workplace with little to no thanks can take its toll on you.
In the advent of all these negative situations, how can you keep yourself from falling apart? How do you teach yourself to move on and start anew? Is there anything you can do to become more resilient?
A "how to live a happy life" essay would always end on a positive note. It would speak of the importance of happiness and how one could bring joy in his own life. A happy mind happy life mindset can always do wonders. But before you reach that aspect...
First, let me say that trusting yourself is not an activity that you do once, and it is done forever. There are multiple levels and dimensions both of TRUST and SELF. As you level up your ability to perceive more of you, you will be redefining the idea of “you” altogether. Therefore the process of getting to know and trust yourself is a practice, not an achievement.
Initially acting upon synchronicity does take a bit of blindness, but it can be done rationally and experientially, with feedback.
To more fully act upon synchronistic opportunities, you have to be ready for action.
Think about a lightning strike. In just a few microseconds, the energetic equivalent of over 100 barrels of petroleum is released. Consistently channeling this energy into an electrical grid would produce an enormous amount of sustainable energy for a very long time. The excitement of that fraction of a second would energetically carry itself into the future. All that is...
As you have more and more synchronistic experiences and can perceive them with greater accuracy, there will be moments where you will ask yourself to take action upon them, to utilize the guidance that you are perceiving.
Before you can sustainably do this, you will need to trust it, honestly believe it.
Typically, there is so much self-doubt to overcome when trusting synchronicity, because, as I am going to talk about, it is more about trusting yourself. It is not about believing something that you perceive to be outside of you but rather building upon your comprehension and intuition to place yourself in a place of trusting.
Remember that everything that you experience is experienced through your perception. This means that nothing that you can perceive exists outside of you.
There is a fundamental choice that each of us makes consciously or subconsciously, in every moment, and collectively we make together, and it has to do with how we perceive the world...
Comprehending synchronicity is important because understanding the mechanics of how something works empowers you to own it and eventually live it. There is a high tendency to look upon spiritual matters as mysterious, and therefore unknowable. This is not the case. As with anything, there is a rational and intuitive aspect, or rather, there is a practical perspective and an intuitive perspective. Bringing some rationality to the equation is vital to move through the awe state that most everyone experiences when they begin to recognize synchronicities.
Though individual deduction and rationality have mostly been absconded by mainstream belief systems that are more rigid (yet becoming loosened) than what is required to comprehend some of the "miraculous" events and experiences happening in our world, simply put, long-standing, left-brained, cultural evidence-based rationality is being introduced to the intuitive truths...
The idea of owning synchronicity is an extension of comprehending synchronicity, and more broadly, integrating your highest levels of truth—or your beliefs—about the nature of reality.
Having TRUE ownership of your creations and what happens to you in your life is not an activity of the ego; it is a balancing of the wisdom of both the mind and the heart.
It is my truth that we all have a fundamental belief—either consciously or subconsciously—that we are either the creator of our experience or the victim of it. I do not see any real middle ground here other than the process of moving from one to the other.
Where most people get hung up on this idea, and its application is when we discuss experiences relating to what we call trauma, or more judgmentally, “bad things.” The purpose is essential, “I would never choose for such terrible things to happen to me, or to happen to people that I love. Therefore, I am not the...
The love that one shows for another shatters the ill-feelings that you have about yourself and eliminates the negativity that your team has about you, and by extension, their work. It more firmly sets the foundation of trust and respect, creating an atmosphere where people go above and beyond expectations.
Getting the most out of your team is as simple as showing them how much you care about them beyond the results that they produce. Contributing to this meaningfully for your organization—no matter the size—can be done with one daily fifteen-minute exercise of utilizing empathy and demonstrating compassion.
Compassion requires empathy towards another. Being seen through the lens of love and care is ultimately what every person wants in some way.
You can be a vehicle for that compassion by 1) having it within you and 2) demonstrating it tangibly and regularly. This consistency brings one out of the honeymoon phase as it gets people to trust you and...
Does money bring happiness? You hear people say over and over again that money can't buy you happiness. In truth, many wealthy people dealing with alcoholism, addiction, and depression could tell you that this is true.
You may have experienced it yourself when you received the last bonus, but it didn't make you happy at all. True happiness, after all, is not something that money can buy. Splurging on a new cell phone or buying yourself a car would make you happy for a moment, and then the feeling fades away.
But what if someone tells you that your perception of money and what it can buy is obsolete? What if someone can show you the right way of spending money so that it can buy you your happiness?
Before you give up on the thought of money as a source of your happiness or pleasure, you should be aware of the various research that shows how much money can buy people their joy.
Money can buy you happiness,...
A flexible schedule requires rigid principles, a bright and defined vision, a dependence/confidence upon yourself, and an open heart and mind.
There is perhaps no more seemingly paradoxical self-management question to ask than how to maintain a flexible schedule. It may seem contradictory to be productive and focused yet, at the same time, allow yourself flexibility in the way in which you manage your day-to-day. These are, in fact, not competing for ideas whatsoever. When we can find more alignment with our bodies' natural flow, a relatively flexible schedule does begin to reveal itself. The problem in doing this is many people have not permitted themselves to, nor have they genuinely realized that—in many cases—it creates more growth opportunities, so long as we stay focused on the fundamental things we are creating and not the superficial ones.
Yes, this terminology comes from the motion pictures' version of Atlas Shrugged....
When was the last time you felt like you won the lottery? A time you felt so good about your life that you couldn't think of anything negative at that very moment. It felt like everything just fell into place.
But when you feel like you are experiencing all the bad things in the world, you tend to blame it on other people. Sometimes, you even blame the Universe for not giving you what you want. But then, when you consult experts, they will tell you that if you are feeling all that bad luck, the first thing you need to look into is yourself.
Make an honest assessment of where you are at the moment. What are your predominant thoughts? After all, if you believe in your thoughts' power, then you should know that the energy of your thoughts can affect your life. While adjusting your thoughts can do wonders, taking advantage of the counterpart energy in crystals can give you a boost.
Good luck crystals often bring you good energy....
The experience that many people are having where they desire MORE out of their relationships—intimate, family, friendships, coworkers—is a reflection of wishing more out of life . . . desiring a depth of experience that has been suppressed. We are having the feeling of wanting to love people more—to have a deeper, more authentic connection with our friends and family—because we also desire to connect more within ourselves.
The problem that many people have is that they do not know how to love themselves. Therefore they do not know how to love someone else. That's it. While there is not a right or wrong way to express your love, the more attentive we are to our own emotions, the more ability we have to be careful about that of others. We can find a more in-depth connection with others by connecting more genuinely within ourselves first, or simultaneously.
The practice of working through our ideal self-image and our...
