There Is a Space

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

When we react to something, what actually happens is that our brain thinks to itself, “Hmmm, where have I encountered a similar experience before?” and then it re-acts, meaning: acts again. It’s a simple survival mechanism, but it doesn’t have to run on automatic. At any given moment we have the option to pause and say: “Thanks, but no thanks.. This time I’m responding differently.”

speak the truth

I’ve reached a point in my life where honesty and openness have become a priority. It isn’t always easy, but it’s always fulfilling. To stay true to myself is the ultimate freedom.

 

But…

But...

If you insist on contradicting your desires with “buts” all the time, (i.e. “I want to follow my passion BUT I don’t think I can make money from it”), try switching it around and adding a “but” to your doubts, instead.

For example: “I don’t think I can make money from doing what I love…BUT…I know that others have done it so I’m willing to research the idea and seek examples of those who make money from similar passions.”

Next time a doubt comes to mind, try adding a “But…” to that thought and see what you come up with. Your brain won’t know what hit it and your heart will thank you.

How Thoughts & Feelings Create Reality

Vibrational frequency

Did you know that your thoughts and feelings directly create your reality?

This is not a new concept, we do it all the time. The thoughts we think make us feel a certain way, and that feeling causes us to vibrate on a certain frequency – just like a radio dial tuning in to a certain station. Thoughts that make us feel bad have lower frequencies, and those that make us feel good have higher ones.

SO, what happens when you tune in to a certain frequency? Well, the same as when you tune in to a certain radio station – you get more of the same! That radio station (life) will continue to provide you with more and more things that match that low or high thought or feeling.

You can change the station, at any given moment, by reaching for a thought that makes you FEEL a little better than you do right now. The key word here is “feel” because your feelings and emotions will always be the indication of whether you are in a low or higher vibrational frequency.

Earth Day

Earth has been around for like 4.6 BILLION YEARS.. does it really need an annual “Day” to be “protected?” If it wanted us off the planet, it would shake us off like a wet dog shakes off water… We should celebrate every single day that Mother Earth still chooses to keep us around…

Happy Earth Day, fellow humans.

Imagine You Lived in a Constant State of Orgasm

Imagine you lived in a constant state of orgasm. 24/7. Pretty cool, huh?

Now imagine you lived this way for eternity. Infinitely. Forever and ever.

Eventually, you will reach a point where you don’t even realize the experience (since it would simply become a part of you), but moreover, you would not be able to enjoy the experience because you no longer have anything to compare it to (i.e. NOT being in a state of orgasm).

So think of it this way: God/The Universe is in a constant state of infinite (metaphorical) orgasm. Only problem is, it has nothing to compare it to.

That’s where we come in.

I have resistance to people who feel the need to make a lot of noise and drama in order for others to accept who they are.. YOU accept who YOU are. The rest will follow. (And yes, i can easily turn that statement back on myself.)

Only in New York can I hear sirens, construction work, birds chirping and my professional opera-singing neighbor all at the same time…
