The difference with Spirituality from Traditional Education

Creating and implementing Spirituality is very much like going to school and then applying what you’ve learned out in the everyday world. Where some people view Spirituality and everyday living, career, work, family, fitness, finances as separate, they are not.

Learning to understand Spirituality takes a practice, discipline and a process. The difference with Spirituality from traditional education is, Spirituality has you uncover, reveal and bring to light aspects of you, aspects of life and living which had been hidden from you, missing, actually moved from your path of growth. It’s an uncovering of personal truths, that feel good, add value to your life and bring to you love, abundance which in turn builds and creates success, happiness and fulfillment. Just as the tree, which can bear fruits of its labor, so too can you, when understanding this natural order.

Places in your life where you feel drained, depleted, stuck, stagnant, repeating cycles and patterns, unstable, these are ways Spirituality provides an influence, greater awareness and the tools and skills to repair, restore and rebalance you, your life and the world you live in.

Spirituality has a foundation in the natural order of things, growth, expansion, harvest. A birth, death, rebirth cycle that is the ebbs and flows of life.

What I find throws people off the track with Spirituality is not having a foundation to understand the principles, practices and how to apply them without creating disruption in one’s own life.

It requires Endings that with grace flow into New Beginnings.

So how does one go about implementing Spirituality without disrupting their life, work and foundation, while choosing to grow, expand and create the changes they desire?

I believe the first thing is understanding your own foundation, your strengths. Usually strengths revolve around career/work, fitness/health, home/family, relationship/ connection in community, things in your life that create stability. For me, my strength has revolved around health and fitness. Health and fitness has always provided me a stable ground to build on, trust in myself and settle in.

Spirituality involves your relationship and connection to yourself in many ways, from your inner child, masculine & feminine to the environment you find yourself in and the people you’re around.

Holding and understanding your foundation, which is the root chakra through the heart chakra, can remove alot of stress in your life over the struggle and contemplation of what to do next.

As you learn the ebbs and flows, cycles and the ending into new beginnings, you can navigate your life with greater ease. You can enjoy your beloved with deeper and greater love, and you can show up more powerfully and fully as the man or woman you desire to be.

You see with Spirituality, there is no reward, or something to earn. There is no achievement or need to look good or get. With Spirituality you have alignment, the place where your true destiny, your path coincides with the choices, actions, decision and, Trust & Faith you hold.

This give you, the essence of your truth and desires a place, a space to show up. You see, it’s not rewards, recognition, or achievement you truly desire. What you desire is the Truth of you, your desires and your path of excellence and contribution to be expressed to come into your life, to come alive through you.

Spirituality in the presence of practice brings this to you. It’s grounded in your truth and nourished and nurtured by your thoughts actions and beliefs. It comes to light, through the dark and unknown with the ability to apply your skills and tools, your practices to the aspects of you which have been buried, hidden and out of alignment. The ones as I mentioned, you struggle with.

In this you find, happiness, health, healing, vitality, prosperity, joy, pleasure, and all of the aspects of you, you believed were missing. You believed you needed to find or get outside of yourself or didn’t know how to grow and tend to.

Spirituality when implemented into your everyday life offers you this gift. This gift of transformation, of the fruits of your labor, from pain to pleasure, from sadness/despair to joy, from poor to wealth. To see the world through the lens of growth.

Owning your Identity

The power of your 2nd chakra, Owning your identity

The 2nd chakra represents either side of the spectrum, pain or pleasure. It is linked to lack and scarcity or abundance and prosperity. It represents your identity within the world and your relationship to the resources that nourish and nurture, money, food and sex.

It is often modeled, imprinted and developed based on your family systems, their beliefs habits and patterns.

Where lack and scarcity bring upon fear of unworthy, neediness, not enough, hiding, self judgment, hopeless, and a host negative feelings and emotions.

Abundance and prosperity brings with it clarity, focus, a sense of peace, trust and more than enough. It speaks of owning your own identity around your basic needs, money, food, sex.

These 2 sides of the spectrum are designed to have movement~ e-motion, energy in motion. Therefore when you are caught in the current, the flow of emotions you can see, feel and turn your emotions into a powerful transformer of circumstances. Where there was lack and scarcity, identify the relationship, the trigger, the point you feel and how you describe the feeling. From here, begin a process to redefine the feeling. Confront fears, the basis for holding negative feelings and emotions. Take actions that challenge you, scare you and trust, that transforms your feeling quick, it’s an accomplishment, and says yes I can and I do.

Abundance and prosperity is meant to be shared. It’s meant to flow, that’s the true nature of the 2nd chakra when healthy and balanced. You flow, your resources flow freely meaning no negative charge to hold them stuck and stagnant.

2nd chakra is how we relate to our emotions and feelings and how we can flow in the world, our resources and relationships. If you find you get a bit stuck or unsure, find trust, step forward, find pleasure and joy and act. Often the simplicity of giving gets you unstuck. Giving from a positive emotion, no attachment, this is what it means to give freely, non attachment.

Learning to navigate your 2nd chakra will give you a plan of action. It identifies your feelings and emotions and directs you, without attachment, to where to transform and shift your interaction and energy. Energy meaning thoughts, feelings and actions, your beliefs. Once again, often the beliefs were planted by family patterns. As you look, and see, as you decide you want a different outcome, feeling, belief you begin to feel and act from that place.

It begins with giving. With opening up your heart, with finding trust in yourself and freely giving with passion and self love.

It’s where you own your identity. Who you are in the world

It’s a beautiful chakra to have spinning and moving healthy and clear. Enjoy the process

Willingness. What Are You Willing to Do?

Willingness is the ability to say yes to yourself. It is the doorway to possibilities.

What do I mean?

In order to go after what it is you want, in order to create changes and change the course of your life, you are going to have to be willing. I don’t use those words often, “have to”. What I know for sure is, if what you are doing is not making you happy or going in the direction you want it to go in, you will have to change your course of action.

Let’s begin with your resources, your money, time and energy. You will need to, have a willingness to place your money, time and energy towards that which you want. Your willingness shows that you desire the changes. Willingness has no attachment. It is an energy that shows up as yes, this is what I want. Willingness speaks of your ability to let go, vulnerability and openness. This is the path to change.

So what are you willing to Do? Often when you get deep in the chaos turmoil, stuckness, or pain, getting out takes a greater commitment, a greater need to settle, create a plan and act, again a willingness to let go of the story and problem and find a solution, this is willingness.

Most people are held back by their inability to be willing, to have courage, to find faith to act from self trust. Think about this. Do you want to be like and considered most people, or do you believe in yourself that you are capable of making the changes necessary to have what you want.

This is a conscious choice, a decision made based on your own self confidence, no one can or will do it for you.

Willingness may go against everything you were taught and believe, and that is what courage is about. Standing up for what you believe in and speaking up. Courage is not tied to outer resources.

This is where most people lose their willingness. Once you begin to talk about money, time, or energy, people shut down, disconnect or turn off. Willingness flies out the window. Willingness, has no attachment, so once again, it opens the conversation to something new and it understands in this new, in a new direction it will take, money, time and energy.

What are you willing to Do? What is something new you are ready to step into that points you in the direction of your dreams, goals, vision and desires?

Creating changes can be challenging, we tend to be programmed pretty good as to what we believe is right or wrong, truth or not truth and what is important.

Willingness breaks through these barriers.

What changes are you looking to create in your life now?

Why women struggle to see the changes they want

For most women it’s not a lack of resources, time, energy or money that holds them back from making the life changes they desire.  Although I hear it all the time from affluent, successful women.  Women who by far have every aspect of comfort and luxury available to them. The real root of the issue is their lack of courage, self confidence, personal power and joy.  Based on the culture values they were raised on, everything was taken care of for them.  There are those women who never had to find their way through a challenge, and the ones that did, were so afraid of real survival issues, found a way to settle in, leaving the past behind, yet never really reconciling the emotional scars.

Now is the time to bring to light, to confront the real fears holding women back, stuck in fear, lack and limitation.

This requires them to face the only person who can save them, and that is themselves.

It can be scary, uncomfortable and risky to think about having to look at yourself in the mirror. To see all the ways you gave up on yourself, in order to get validation of who you are in the world.

Where do we begin? And why?

First we begin with accepting yourself. Forgiving yourself for believing others, trying to keep others happy and forgive yourself for giving up on yourself. Accept the woman you are right now, today. The woman who stands before you in front of the mirror and tell her, you love her.

Look at your confidence, power, and joy. What do you notice?  How do these resources make you feel? Do you know what they are, from within you? How do they show up in your life, or are they missing?

If these are the resources missing, congratulate yourself for your awareness, recognizing thy’re missing and why you’re held back from making the desired changes you’ve been looking to make. You traded your confidence, power and joy in exchange for time, energy and money as opposed to weaving and blending the two together. You gave up on one for the other, and you wonder why you’re not succeeding in making the changes you desire.

So now, it’s time to head in a new direction. That means to take new actions.  This requires courage.  Courage is the key that unlocks the door to the tower you’ve locked yourself away in. No one can do it for you. It’s about taking one step at a time, an action that will set you on a new path, which involves a risk.  Look at it this way.  Every time you step into a courageous action you build your account of confidence, power and joy.

Accept yourself. Look at yourself.  You deserve more.  Not more things.  More, joy, passion, pleasure and love. That can only come from you taking action for your desires.

The biggest challenge is getting started, and since you haven’t been privy to taking actions, risk taking, and courage, it’s like death.  Yes, I know, it feels like death.  That’s it sister. Crossing the threshold into unknown territory will challenge your opposites, life and death. To gain new life you will have to cross over the death of the old into the new.  Living a life in fear.  Living a life attached to outside resources, that’s not living.  That’s keeping you locked in your ivory tower. Your confidence, power and joy, will open you in ways that will shake you to the core, freeing you.

It is freedom you seek.  You thought you’d find it in time, energy and money.  Doing more, having more.

Freedom.  Now you know, your freedom is found in your confidence, power and joy.  Go. Find it, make it happen.

I believe in you.
