Inner Journey: TIME TO CHANGE?

“When coasting in our comfort zones, we don’t grow. We continue to do more of the same…. Maintaining a comfort zone can, paradoxically, lead to discomfort in the long run. If by being comfortable we avoid important life issues, internal tension accumulates…. Eventually, as both internal and external pressures for change persist, the ‘comfort zone’ ceases to serve us.”
— Eric Allenbaugh

It takes effort to change. What do you most want to change in your life? Make a list of what you can do to start the process. Try journaling, perhaps. Read books. Take a course. Find a mentor. Seek out support.

How will you commit time to make it happen? When are you going to start? Your life is passing quickly!

“Be not afraid of changing slowly; be afraid only of standing still.”
— Chinese Proverb

Searching
“Often the search proves more profitable than the goal.”

-E.L. Konigsburg, From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, 1967


There’s an old saying that the journey, not the destination, is what is important. What if what we are actually searching for is the search itself? Here we are, somehow we got ourselves at this point in time, at this place on earth, and yet we know there is “more.” Just that knowingness leads us to places, both physical and spiritual, that allow us to experience more of our Selves

ThoughtCo: Choosing Crystals

Most people who want to use crystals have a particular purpose in mind.

Additionally, not everyone reacts the same way when exposed to a crystal.

Inner Journey: EXPLORE YOUR FEARS

“Fear is a question: What are you afraid of, and why? Just as the seed of health is in illness, because illness contains information, our fears are a treasure house of self-knowledge if we explore them.”
— Marilyn Ferguson

In our world of duality, fear and love sit at opposite ends of the continuum. Fear belongs only to the personality because it believes in separation and impermanence. The soul never knows fear because it understands the unity of all.

When fear arises, we can invite our soul to sit with our frightened personality. What soul energies are waiting to be acknowledged? When we bring higher energies into the presence of lower energies, the lower energies are transformed.

“What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear,not how to escape from it.”
— Jiddu Krishnamurti

Self-Awareness
“When one is pretending the entire body revolts.”

-Anais Nin


Self-awareness means also being in touch with the signals that our body gives us. We might try to “fake it” on the outside, but we can’t fool ourselves. The body doesn’t lie. When we get stressed out it can show up in our stomach, or our back, or as a headache. We can use those signals to give our body what it needs to come back into balance – whether it’s a glass of water, a massage, or a nap!

-Lissa Coffey

MBG: Struggling With Willpower? A ‘Spiritual Anchor’ Is The Solution You’ve Been Looking For

A “spiritual anchor” is an object that reminds people of what gives their lives meaning and purpose and consequently why they may want to change their behavior. It’s a talisman that connects to the most powerful neuro-networks in the central nervous system those that influence behaviors. This is because meaning and purpose are strongly related to emotions that “emote movement” toward healthy choices, choices people make because they are associated with what matters most to them.

A Bountiful Moment

The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us. ~Voltaire

Daily Thought: When you look back at past experiences make sure you are focusing on the wins, the overcoming and the achievements. Don’t focus on what should have been, could have been or the what if? Focus on the positive aspects of you and your life will only grow more of the same. Be strong and support the best you to continue to be better and better

Daily Practice: Write yourself a small note of congratulations for all you have accomplished. Write it as if it is to someone you are really proud of and inspired by. Write as many details as possible describing what characteristics you see as impressive and awesome! Now read it back to yourself. Save it and read it over and over and over until you can believe it is you.

Have a Great Day and Believe in Yourself!

MNN: How to identify different types of bees

When was the last time you were in your garden, saw a bee, grabbed it and squeezed it? Probably never, right?

Unless you’ve done that, there’s a good chance that if you’ve ever been stung it wasn’t by a bee, said Becky Griffin. And she would know. Griffin teaches classes on bees to children and adults through the Center for Urban Agriculture at the University of Georgia Extension’s Northwest District and is a certified beekeeper in Cherokee County, Georgia

Patheos-Pagan: Lord of the Rings: Lessons to Remember, Lessons to Forget

A couple weeks ago some friends and I gathered for a Lord of the Rings marathon: all three movies back to back to back, complete with second breakfast, elevenes, lunch, dinner, and enough tea and ale to keep all the hobbits happy. It was a fun day – and a long day.

Tales of heroism – particularly from creatures as small and unlikely as hobbits – are popular with everyone

Inner Journey: What do you feed your mind

“I then remembered why I avoid the ‘news,’ if that’s what you want to call it. Our ‘news’ is a misnomer, and it’s more like ‘the ongoing train wreck you can tune in to at any time when you want to divert yourself from your purpose and your happiness… lose your faith in humanity… and go from feeling like things are pretty good to feeling like the world is going to sh*t and why bother going on, I mean really?'”
— Ali Brown

Our beliefs create our reality. If we wish to live happy, healthy lives, it’s vital that we feed our minds healthy, nourishing material. The negative, sensational focus of today’s ‘news’ media hardly serves to enlighten us about the true state of the planet. Let’s open to our limitless potential by keeping our focus firmly on what uplifts us.

“The world is not dying. It’s not falling apart. It’s changing. I personally believe that pessimism is an indulgence, despair an insult to the imagination. There are wonderfully positive things out there.”
— Wade Davis
