I AM Magic!

sparkle-head

 

What does it feel and look like to love and accept yourself? It does have a look you know. I know because I have seen it on people; it is like a wave of energy all around them, a rainbow glow. You can feel its warmth, you can see it in the clothes they are wearing, their smiles are big and inviting, they have a twinkle in their eye. Their body language says, Welcome!

They shine, and their energy is radiant, you are drawn to them without even knowing why, you just are. The next time you meet up with someone, look into their eyes, not a quick glance but the kind of contact that you can see and feel the energy flow. Eye contact can reflect our current emotions; it is also the coined phrase; The eyes are the window to the soul. Traditional Proverb.

When I greet anyone, I always make eye contact straight away. I know it can be intimidating to look into the eyes, after all, it is like looking in someone’s window of their home. The eyes don’t lie; they are excellent indicators of where we are at and how open we are.

How do we set the tone for a good day?

Imagine waking up every morning and deciding what color sparkle you want to wear, what light you want to shine ‘within’ and on every person you meet. Well, you can, when you first wake up, adopt the practice of a morning mantra; say to yourself the words; “I AM,” and Fill in how you want your day to go with something positive about yourself and your day.

It works, it sets the temperature for you to feel all the beauty you are, a morning mantra empowers you, it sets an awareness to take into your day. That is the perfect way to get your groovy on and create perfect weather!

Think of yourself as a walking magician sprinkling your magical energy everywhere. The more you give, the more you light up.

You are on a joyous journey every day, and you are walking around in the company of yourself and other people. You are powerful and can change the energy flow with your self-talk, presence, and intentions. YOU are POWERFUL!

“What day is it?” asked Pooh.
“It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.
“My favorite day,” said Pooh.

acceptance5

 

Accepting oneself has a significant side effect, you start to accept everyone else too. You begin to understand that perfect is a made up word to drive you crazy. “Perfect” is so damn subjective.
 
What is perfect? Perfection in the minds of another, most definitely won’t be defined that way by you. We all have our definition of what perfection is to us.
 
Self-acceptance is NOT about liking everything about yourself, nor do you have to change everything either. It is about accepting what is happening now with you.
 
Only you can decide if something is not working for you, in you and around you to make that change.
 
When you accept life, you accept yourself and realize that running, hiding from yourself won’t change a thing. It just brings about feelings of worthlessness, shame, and an unlived life.
 
Life is about ‘What is.’ Accepting the moment for what it is. That is true freedom. Living out openly as you are meant to be an inspiration to yourself.
 
Only YOU can decide what is perfect for you. Self-acceptance is having compassion for yourself, being a friend to yourself. Come out of hiding, embrace your beautiful badass self. The world needs YOU, YOU need you.
 
Everything is within you; every joy, every happiness, every laugh unheard, every smile un-shown. It is up to you to decide when to release them, live them and own them.
 
Love yourself—accept yourself—forgive yourself—and be good to yourself, because without you the rest of us are without a source of many wonderful things.” ~Leo F. Buscaglia

earth

Quote; Eric Micha’el Leventhal

When we were born the first words were; “It’s a boy,” “It’s a girl,” that was when we adopted the either, or identity.
 
It is our responsibility to come into alignment with nature and natural law. To know ourselves deeply to integrate qualities of the feminine (yin) and masculine (yang) in a balanced and harmonious way for optimal health, harmony and understanding. To know ourselves and others in such a way we create a dance that brings us into balance.
 
How am I attuned to my inner awareness? Am I in touch with the energy that flows through my body? Do I know who I am?
 
All of our emotions are a great symphony that tells our story. If we listen, inquire and allow the natural law of the body to flow, we begin to understand just how creative, wondrous and uniquely designed we are, both masculine and feminine.
 
Even though we might identify with being male or female, we utilize both traits to “do” and “experience” life. Aggressive and passive behaviors let us know which energy is taking over. When we understand that, we can adjust accordingly.
 
Going through life is a series of adjustments, but we can only make those modifications when we are aware of these beautiful qualities in ourselves. Understanding that we are both ‘yin’ and ‘yang’ is an important piece of the human puzzle. It is the ultimate dance.
 
Today, notice your energy when you are stressed out or just being passive, or maybe you are neutral. This awareness can help to see places where you are less aware, or less adept with some aspect of your masculine or feminine qualities.
 
By tuning into ourselves, it affords us to understand ourselves deeper and clearer.
You are an ONE-OF-KIND footprint of life. Realizing our full potential is key to feeling, breathing and living the flow of life.
 
Male and female represent the two sides of the great radical dualism. But in fact, they are perpetually passing into one another. Fluid hardens to solid, solid rushes to fluid. There is no wholly masculine man, no purely feminine woman.~Margret fuller

awareness1

 

How often do you take a moment to feel yourself completely, to awaken to all the sensations of who you are?

To take a personal inventory of this human phenomenon called life. To discover that In those quiet moments, we nearly perceive a grand, divine conspiracy of interconnectedness between us and everything in us, around us, and beyond. We can catch a glimpse of that free falling feeling when we take a few moments to feel.

Why are we here? Always the big question with a thousand answers according to what we want to believe about ourselves and our evolution.

We are all mysterious creations of some unexplainable force that we can’t even grasp entirely in our limited mind and perception of what this life it all about.

Each one of us a unique expression, a beautiful expansive heart, a radiant and evolutionary spirit.

Can you imagine feeling that magnificence within, that is a ‘WOW,’ there would be so much love and respect for the essence of who you are, and everything around you. You would be the sun shining on everything and everyone. That is powerful.

When we empty ourselves of our egoic selves, we live connected to all the parts of being a whole human being. Our prejudices do not drive us.

Each day take a moment to breathe in yourself, feel every fiber of your being and know what a miracle YOU are. Self-Love lives without any rules, conditions, limitations or neediness. You are everything you need in the quiet moment.

That openhearted regard for yourself is always present, regardless of whether or not you are in a relationship. It is in your own heart. It is the essence of YOU! It is your constant companion.

Always love yourself more each day, build on that and your life will get better and better. When you love yourself, nurture your heart and know just how wondrous you are, that is infectious. That radiance is something everyone wants to get.

Love is a game of hiding and seeking within, we have ideas about what love should be like, look like and how others should act. It is when we go within, we can find the big ‘reveal’ That love is YOU!

“Come out come out wherever you are!”

All that is necessary to awaken to yourself as the radiant emptiness of spirit is to stop seeking something more or better or different and to turn your attention inward to the awake silence that you are.~Adyashanti

surrender8

 

Play a game today with yourself, surrender into having the most unordinary day ever! Surrender to be kind to everyone you meet, smile big for no reason other than it changes the way YOU feel inside. Act as if you are the magician, and YOUR presence makes everyone love themselves more.

Feel your confidence rise when you are greeted with a day that does not bother you and your intention is for you and everyone to feel that big bliss.

This allowing and surrendering to ‘what is,’ is very powerful. You have more control in your life as you are not weighted down by expectations.

I love it when I see a dog hanging his head out the window without a care in the world trusting this moment.

When we operate through surrender, flow, and intention, it affords us inner peace. We drop the storylines of our lives; we are not so quick to project, and the quality of our day just gets better.

Just for today, get in touch with what it feels like to just allow life to unfold and flow while you witness it. It’s kinda like going to the movies and relaxing into the story; there is nothing to do but observe.

Exemplify the life you wish to see mirrored back to you! Dolby Dharma

“Always say “yes” to the present moment. What could be more futile, more insane, than to create inner resistance to what already is? What could be more insane than to oppose life itself, which is now and always now? Surrender to what is. Say “yes” to life — and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you.” ~Eckhart Tolle

what-you-thinks

Of course, we take thinking for granted; it is something that just happens throughout the day. We generate thoughts all day long, some conscious and some not so much. Our minds are in constant motion, even when we sleep the brain never turns off.

When we have thoughts, they generate energy and of course they have an effect on us in some way, shape or form. We know this from experiences; when we are angry it changes us, and when we are joyful it changes us too, and when we put our stuff out there, the feedback creates energy. The point is that the thoughts we think about ‘ourselves’ are vital either way, negative or positive.

The opinion that you form about yourself is what shapes you, guides you into the decisions in your life, the kinds of friends you have, the job you choose and of course your ultimate relationship, the one with yourself.

More often than not what other people think of you usually reflects what you think of yourself. Unfortunately, we are so busy looking outside ourselves for direction, answers, the way and at the other person to see the ‘BIG’ picture. Your uniqueness!

There is a saying; “Your vibe attracts your tribe.” Over the many years I have been here on planet earth, I can see a lot of truth to that statement, not always, but for the most part, yes.

So how do we think better about ourselves? How do we accept who we are as an individual without fearing what others might think, more than what we believe? There is no quick fix with the exception of being mindful of how much you worry about what others think, or how it will look, and or question yourself as to why you need that input at all. If you seek an answer, you will find one.

Not all of us are comfortable making our decisions without the input of other people a lot of the time. Feedback, input all those things are very valuable to us and can guide us when we feel unsure. It is when we live to please the outside tribe, or not to upset the apple cart by living our way is the problem.

Like anything, it is a practice to hone in on your opinions without worrying about who is going to judge you. We are social by nature, and we love to talk and ask other people what they think about this, that and the other. People are well meaning and want you to adopt their perspective because it makes them feel more comfortable and secure, and you just might feel that too, after all, you won’t be in it alone.

There is nothing wrong with input, but what counts is where you put ‘it.’ ‘It’ meaning, stop being a people pleaser. It can be scary thinking outside the box or making a choice that is the opposite of what was suggested. When we don’t think for ourselves, it is most often because we are scared of disagreeing with others and afraid of “rocking the boat.” A freethinker, on the other hand, bases their self-worth on something other than what people think of them.

Freethinkers may still experience rejection, discomfort, and anguish, but they will continue to think for themselves.

When we like who we are, trust in ourselves, we make decisions that are unique to our wellbeing, not the opinions of others. Carolyn Myss says that when you have to run your story around it takes a lot of time and you have to ‘wait’ to make that decision, and it also ‘weighs’ you down. To move freely in life CHOOSE YOU and Rock the hell out of a lot of boats, because in the end, WE ALL benefit from FREE THINKERS, which by the way is an OPEN MIND that paves a new way! Trust YOURSELF more! Dolby Dharma

We begin life with the world presenting itself to us as it is. Someone — our parents, teachers, analysts — hypnotizes us to “see” the world and construe it in the “right” way. These others label the world, attach names and give voices to the beings and events in it, so that after that, we cannot read the world in any other language or hear it saying other things to us. The task is to break the hypnotic spell, so that we become undeaf, unblind and multilingual, thereby letting the world speak to us in new voices and write all its possible meanings in the new book of our existence. Be careful in your choice of hypnotists. ~Sidney Jourard

fragile

 

We are all just a stone throw away from experiencing some event or situation that can leave us scared, vulnerable and fragile.

This past week I experienced feeling fragile, scared and walking on shaky ground. I have always considered myself the strong one, the one who takes care of everything, protects my family and friends. The cheerleader for everyone when their lives feel frail and out of control.

My slogan; ‘I got this.’

This past week I was feeling a ton of anxiety for something that was out of my control. I know most things are out of our control, but I also know we think we are in control, at least we like to believe that.

The only strength I could hold onto that I could grasp was my faith, my breath, and how I will direct my energy and even those elements were feeling challenged at the moment.

I know that it’s okay to feel down, to cry, to feel vulnerable and to get it all out; that is a natural relief, but that doesn’t change the ‘reality’ and the fragilities of the things thrown at us in unexpected ways. We have insecurities, weaknesses, heartaches, past hurts, and fears, that shape how we will experience certain hardships. I was tested this past week.

When our lives get hard, scary, and feel like we are spiraling in a tunnel where we can’t see the light or which way is up. That is the time to dig deep within, call out the warrior and be brave and open to all the love and support that is offered to us without feeling like a burden. We all deserve a helping hand now and then. That is what gets you through it too.

Fragile and uncertain times are the perfect opportunities to love ourselves, even more, to trust, even more, to have faith in something greater than what we can see, the unknowing spirit that is watching out for all of us and that everything is in Divine order.

None of us know what comes or the outcomes of our lives; that is the great mystery.

That unknowing is scary and exciting depending on what is going on in our lives. One day at a time, one breath at a time helps us deal with fragile, uncertain, unknowing times that will come, like it or not!
Life is good! Dolby Dharma

Never be ashamed of what you are feeling.

No matter how strong and Positive we are;
It okay to be sad sometimes.
It’s okay to be afraid sometimes.
It’s okay to cry or want someone to hold you.

It doesn’t mean you are weak.
It just means that you are strong enough to accept;
And embrace all that your Journey brings to you.
It takes great courage to be able to do that.

Out of this Darkness, the Light of Hope will Shine.
And with the Lessons learned;
You will come forth out of the cocoon;
Like a Butterfly, celebrating its Transformation.

Beautiful Hearts, we may be Brave;

But we’re all a little Fragile at times.

~ Kiran.
