“We live in an incredibly busy world. Our pace of life is often frantic, our minds are always busy, and we’re always doing something,” says Andy Puddicombe at the TEDSalon London Fall 2012. “The sad fact is that we’re so distracted that we are no longer present in the world in which we live. We miss out on the things that are most important to us. The crazy thing is, people assume that’s just the way life is. But that’s not really how it has to be.” - Andy Puddicombe
One of things I am committed to in 2013, is truth. To being brutally and ridiculously truthful to myself for starters.
It’s funny when you start asking yourself, “is that true?” after you say something you may have said a million times before. You start to realize how many of the things you say are actually excuses, simply being made out of habit. Don’t be too hard on yourself, we all do this.
Yes, it’s scary at first when you start to ask yourself “is that true” and the answer is actually, no (sometimes, hell no). It’s scary to think about how many times you didn’t tell the truth to yourself (or others) without even realizing it. You think, “Can I even trust myself?”
No need to dwell in that. Now is now. Trust yourself now. Tell yourself the truth now. Seriously, do it. I can already see a new type of freedom starting to show itself, even after only 5 days of this new awareness of what is true and what is turning out to be total bullshit. ;)
There are many advantages to the truth, and I am ready to learn them all. Try it for yourself. Truth feels good.
“The Greatest Advantage of speaking the truth is that you don’t have to remember what you said.” – Anonymous
This picture just popped up on my computer as I sit here working, contemplating if I should skip yoga and not go up to Los Angeles to see my friend because I have too much work to do. I love when these beautiful little reminders come at the perfect moment. Yes, you can have it all, it just takes practice and a little bit of harmony.
Like all of us, I have many important relationships in my life. They all start the same way, with an unexplainable, beautiful connection that is love in its purest form. It’s crazy how you can have something so amazing with little or no effort.
We are taught that the more you add to things, the better they should get, but connection, honestly may be just the opposite. As we add time, circumstances and life, fear and insecurity, those connections can be dramatically diminished, and sometimes completely lost and nowhere to be found. This can be very frustrating, to say the least.
Just as my connection to others is essential in my life, the relationship between me and my intuition may be the most important one. We have a pretty amazing relationship overall and can be a pretty powerful team, literally making things appear like magic (even surprising ourselves sometimes). HOWEVER, if things are not good between us, we can do some pretty impressive damage… and we work fast!
About six months ago, I found myself in a familiar place, heading down that dark alley way and slowing being enveloped by fear (I hate when that happens). That place where you can’t make a decision, where it’s hard to look in the mirror because, well, you’re not there.
On this one particular day, I decided to look at myself anyway, and literally said to myself, “You are not going there again. Go take care of yourself, once and for all!” Seriously, enough is enough.
I mean, I do yoga, meditate and I am a wellness professional myself, but to be honest, was I really doing all I could do to keep my intuition strong, to nurture it? The answer was no. Do any of us really give it the attention it deserves?
So, I started caring for it, taking away all of the things that get piled up on top of it and bringing it back to that pure, connected place I mentioned in the beginning of this story.
Long story short, in the last six months of working with an intuitive wellness counselor, Jenna. Think about that, “intuitive wellness”. I love that! I have been so inspired by her, I have started my own rapidly growing business living out my passion, I am in a beautiful relationship, and seem to be calling a truce on the battle against me and my old self-sabotaging patterns. Seriously magic.
Now, intuitive wellness is simply part of my overall routine (why wouldn’t it be?), along with eating healthy, running and going to yoga. What working with Jenna has reinforced is that NO MATTER what we allow to cover up our intuition, it is always there. It is our job, and no one else’s to protect it and keep it strong. If you do this, every time you look in the mirror, you will see yourself. And when we really see ourselves, our truths, we realize that anything is possible, because, it is.
To learn more about Intuitive Wellness, I strongly encourage you to contact Jenna at Tune in Solana Beach, California. She is wonderful and will support you to find something you thought you may have lost. Don’t worry, it’s not lost, you just have to give it a little love. ♥
