Non Attachment

It’s very simple to speak and say, well detach from it- hold no attachment, it’s another thing to actually be able to apply this skill set.

Non-attachment at its foundation holds you in faith, strength, courage and trust.  It’s a magical place to stand. What occurs in order to be in non- attachment is a power from within and without so strong, there is nothing to stand in your way of the desired outcome.

Now, for many people the idea of detaching, brings up the exact issue that creates the attachment. So for example, fear of money- has people afraid of letting go, releasing, give of money. Fear of safety and security has people holding onto things, homes, people, money because of the feelings and emotions that are associated with the idea of losing safety and security.

These are the real issues, programming and patterns to clear- to find a sense of peace, clarity and freedom.

So how does one go about doing this?

First, identify what the fear is?  I mean look at the fear- not judge it, or label it, just look at what brings up fear- loss of what?  Now once you have identified the fear, be present with it. No action required. No emotions required.  Go about your living, and begin to notice each time a thought, feeling, emotion or experience comes up and triggers this fear. Good.  All you are set to do here is identify it and observe as it comes up.

Now that you know what brings up the fear, you see the trigger. Be patient.  What often is a thorn in the side with non- attachment is the fighting, the grip, the will, and determination to change something to get out of the pain, chaos, trauma.  This holds a charge and power.  Patience is the salve to igniting the trigger.  With patience you can defuse the charge.  Stay in patience. Center, breath, and find stillness.  These are a new experience.  This begin to settle the ground beneath you, the one that shakes everytime the trigger blows up.

What your next step here is to look for what you want.  What experiences feelings emotions and outcomes do you want.  No- attachment, just what are they.  Then ask youself why these triggers affect you.  Why at this point in your life are you being triggered by something that occurred when you were a child and what truth do they hold now? What traumas were there, what chaos erupted, what pain, saddness, vicitimization and lack or scarcity did you see or were exposed to.

Here is where you my love must show up in your power.  If you saw witnessed or experienced a trauma, you most likely did everything you could to protect yourself and overcome it.  Settle in to this with me.  Look around you.  Do you have the love, security, safety, money, food and relationship (whether with yourself or a partner) you desire.  Did you create the environment now as an adult you needed to get yourself out of the situation or circumstance that held you in pain, chaos and trauma?

I bet you did.

So now, the body, your emotions are still running the program.  They are being triggered by the patterns that show up in your life.  See you did a great job remove and growing from the experience physically, yet emotionally those wounds must be released- non- attachment, for you to truly be free.

You’re essentially still holding the fear pattern within through your thoughts actions and behaviors.  Now, non-attachment will ask of you to step into courage, to be the adult, the responsible adult you were always looking for to show up, to step in and take action, to protect you through creating a safe space.  This space gives your emotions, feelings and inner child, inner feminine a space to be safe.  In this safety you have the freedom to be, to express yourself, your truth- to feel to speak to be heard seen and validated.  You are given the space to open and let go, relax and find peace.  This continues to evolve into non-attachment.  That’s right, you are no longer attached to the story or the way others, adults in your life, showed up projecting and intimidating their issues on you.

You find a new sense of peace joy and happiness.  It is here you are free.

Your emotions hold the power to transform your life, are you ready.

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?

What holds you back from what you want

What’s holding you back isn’t what you don’t have. What’s holding you back is the choice and decision to have that which you want.

You see, in order to acquire and have what you want, will ask of you to do the work, put a plan together and take the steps necessary to have what you want.
What holds you back is the story, and beliefs you tell yourself about money, about spending money or putting money towards what you want.

Money is a tool. it is used to build and invest into things, qualities that will help you, to aquire the thing you want. Money is the vehicle, when you spend and invest in services, program and products thathelp you get there. Now the choices you make on the products, services and programs are up to you. The point is saying no, and being unwilling to move money towards your desires, hold you back.

You don’t commit. You’ don’t hold yourself powerful enough. You don’t see the power you hold in the decision you make to have what you want by placing money towards having it.

Now the steps, require action. So when money is put in the plan, you have a sense of urgency a sense of purpose. Take the steps. Go to the groups, take the classes, show up. These are all important aspects that move you towards your desire. It take courage and it shows commitment.

In order to have what you want, you must be doing things different than you are doing them, so this plan puts that in place.

Practice. Practice feeling what it feels like having what you want. Practice expriencing who you are having this. What does it feel like. How do you stand, how do you act? What becomes important to you. Do more of these things.

You see having what you want is in your control What it takes is letting go of the story. Letting go of the excuses. Stepping into curiosity and courage, the 2 qualities necessary to find a new way, to find what it is you desire and want. Every other way- has you in the old beliefs that hold you back and don’t support you and your wants.

Other people will have a story why you can’t do it, why it won’t work.

Stop listening to them. They don’t hold the power, you do. Your power requires actions in alignment with your goals and desires.

What holds you back is your inability to take the actions, to be bold and hold yourself powerful in action.

Now, today, what are you going to do, what action are you going to take on in alignment with your goals and desires.

The Pathway to Flow

Surrender, Allow, Receive

 

There is a pathway, a process flow moves through.  Often when there are blocks in the way, blocks such as limiting beliefs, faulty habits and patterns, and blocks that are negative self talk, this pathway becomes stuck, stagnant and empty.

It is here, often people try to fill this void, this stuckness with things, relationships and other toxic actions, unaware how to step into surrender, allow, receive in order to have the flow moving again.

I want to break this down into simplicity, and yet fully aware of the magnitude these thoughts and actions are, for they ask you to step outside your comfort zone.

So if you have thoughts, actions and beliefs that weigh you down, that feel heavy, these are creating blocks, interfering with your growth, development and flow. In order to move, to grow, shake off the limitations, you must take a new action, create new thoughts and beliefs.  You must remove the old in order to clear space, create and receive the new.

So, here is where surrender, allow, receive come in.  While you recognize the limitations, you take a new action.  In this new action, entering the unknown, you build courage, strength and develop trust and faith. This is laying the pathway to the new.  Consider it laying a new foundation or digging out a channel that’s been backed up.  Once you have developed the new habits, patterns and beliefs, and taken actions, there will be a bridge to cross.  This is the threshold into the new. This is through your courage and commitment to move forward. It is here, as you cross this threshold, the work is complete, you must lay down your actions, your movement, and surrender your will to the bigger vision. To the vision you are going towards.  This surrender is peaceful, authentic and truly a gift from the Universe for you to be seen, heard and validated. As you accept surrender, you allow.  Allow is a beautiful practice of clarity, clear on what you want to receive and clear of what is not acceptable, as you hold strong, discerning boundaries. Allowing only that which is in direct alignment with your desires, growth and new.  This sets the ground, and foundation to receive- a nest to receive that which you desire, the new. And to receive what you desire becomes simple and effortless.  It comes in in the most miraculous ways.

 

Be strong.  Be powerful.  Trust in your desires and take action.

It is up to you to cultivate a relationship with trust, faith, surrender, allow and receive.

You’ve got this!

Busting Open the Beliefs of Yoga. Connecting to your true Source of Personal Power

The depth of connection we have through our bodies is profound, penetrating through ever aspect of how we choose to live and in every thought, action, movement and feeling. 

inner compass 2

Let’s bust open some myths or outdated beliefs here, about the practice of yoga. Practice, is a series of actions, disciplines that create shifts, and gives you a formula for growth and development. Where yoga has an exceptional plan for focus and discipline in practice, it’s method of connecting one’s spirit to it’s own innate inner knowing, which includes opening channels that connect the ground below and the heavens above is archaic, built on a philosophy that held others in power and control.

There is another way. It is the way of the Priestess

From a time when women, with her beautiful ability to surrender, receive and allow had access to Divine Wisdom for the prosperity and abundance of all. Before the darkness. When the light was a representation of individuality, fertility, expansion, and all the joys and pleasure this connection brought to the people. There was no one leader. There was no one to follow. What transpired was the unique self expression of people through play, arts, creativity, music, sex, dance, food from the land and community connection.

Yoga, in it’s actions, closes off the channel. As a woman leader, one of the Priestess with a Divine Channel, my energy and ability to connect, like my sisters, is my greatest asset. This ability to connect my energy source to the earth below and the heaven above flows through the Divine Channel that opens with my pubic bone tilted and held forward, my coccyx bone tilted back and sits bones extended left to right. This Diamond shape, is the channel and connection that allows for a free flowing source energy to move through me. It is a place of personal power.

What this relationship creates within the body is extraordinary. It holds the lumbar spine, the lower back in a neutral position which is an arch. This arch, the design is for the connection of spiritual energy, rich, fertile, creative, and self expressive to move through this channel. It is the spirit in action. It is YOU. It is how you create and express your unique self in this world.

The current model and teachings of yoga, has not acknowledged nor chooses to recognize this essential action step in opening the channel which connects one’s spirit to their inner knowing.

Yoga, in it’s practice and philosophy teaches to tuck the tailbone- which is a submissive position. It creates a domination. It has someone’s own sense of personal safety and security look toward outward teaching. And looking in at the naval or solar plexus, has someone giving up their power to something or someone other than themselves.

Let’s put this in perspective with the true Natural order of the Divine, the animal Kingdom which thrives through a food chain model. A jaguar does not tuck it’s tailbone. She stands strong in her center, present. The curves of her svelte body the epitome of strength and beauty. When this majestic beauty decides it’s time to take action and look at the world around her, she sits looking out, observing with clarity on her next steps, which are divinely guided by her intuition. In situations where she finds herself in trouble, after the experience, she shakes herself off. She is clear on her power. And, no where does she give it away.

The exquisite nature of our senses are to experience the richness and fullness of life. Sights, sounds, feel, touch, smells all bring greater joy and evoke the feeling of pleasure. If you are not experiencing pleasure, the opposite is pain, or no feeling connection apathy. Neither one produces a positive Flow state. It’s easy to become stuck and stagnant here.

Yoga has a philosophy to turn off your senses, not be attached to the feelings. My feelings as a Divine Being are a gift from Heaven and my compass- the compass of my heart, spirit and passion, which drive and move me forward. And, isn’t that the same thing they teach about Law of Attraction, get into the feelings? My senses are a map, directing me in the direction to go. With each piece of pleasure I receive through sight, sound, touch, feel and smell, the experience of it, I find peace, joy and happiness. I open, I connect, I feel and I love. I FLOW. I receive, I open, I give and I celebrate the richness that moves through my life.

This is the path, the channel and source of the 2nd chakra flow~ sensuality, joy and pleasure. Your deepest connection to pleasure. Sure their are false pleasures to get you out of pain, and that is for you to reconcile. Money, sex, food all travel through the 2nd chakra. These 3 connect us to the physical and a sense of true safety and security. When we get into right relationships with our flow, our Selves, they flow freely. Opening your channel, connecting to your inner knowing, reclaims your personal power, and sense of identity that only you can have, it is your unique genius through your senses, feelings, thoughts and emotions, which comes from a high vibe state of pleasure and feeling, individual to you. Your blueprint, your identity.

Money, Food, Sex. These are the areas people and society have a hard time identifying themselves, your own personal power, your own blueprint, your own identity without a group, tribal or other people’s beliefs, ideas, judgments and philosophies. Taking a stand for your own personal philosophy. Just as I choose to do here. Without your own identity and personal power, what do you think happens? You give it away to others. You give it to others and you receive what they give, their ideas, beliefs and philosophies. The energy of the 2nd chakra is giving and receiving and creative or destructive. What do you think happens when the channel and flow is closed? Pain or apathy sets in. What do you think happens when you don’t have a sense of identity or feeling of personal power? You feel weak, vulnerable, unworthy. Do you think the Jaguar ever feels that way or gives her power away.

The depth of connection we have through our bodies is profound, penetrating through ever aspect of how we choose to live and in every thought, action, movement and feeling.

Make no mistake the practice of yoga has helped me, as a guide and a tool, a practice of focus and discipline, where like the jaguar I thrive in the environment. I took matters into my own hands. I consistently apply my own philosophy, inner wisdom, strength and personal power. I consistently trust my inner knowing, I choose to act from a place of power with my intimate intelligent inner wisdom as a Priestess.

This is the way we create change.

We allow, we give way to each person to connect into their own inner wisdom. We guide lead, model and teach how to keep this flow, this connection through the 2nd chakra of sensuality and the significant values of personal power exemplified by the jaguar.

This is they way of the Priestess

Success and Business. Gaining an edge, standing out from the crowd

 

Succeeding in business takes persistence, commitment and drive to succeed, while implementing an impeccable work ethic and a positive mental attitude highlights your drive to succeed. Gaining confidence, knowing your strengths and taking action towards your goals provides you the stamina necessary to get where you are going, and keeps you moving forward.

Here are 7 skills to Gain an Edge, Stand Out from the Crowd

  1. Know your goals.  Have clear definitive goals on what you want to accomplish in business such as  job title, salary, company you want to work for, and work you do. These goals give you a structure to work in, like a road map.  By staying focused on your business goals you’ll pay attention to opportunities, take action towards your goals and keep moving forward.
  2. Think outside the box.  Businesses today are looking for leaders who are willing to lead the way, to bring ideas to the table with creative thinking.  Be an asset to a company by providing them valuable ways to solve problems and come up with new ways to generate income or provide better service.  
  3. Know your strengths.  Building yourself up as an asset to your company, a valuable team player, requires you to know what strengths you bring to the business. Knowing your best skills, where you shine, provides you a way to communicate and act from focus, while asking for collaboration and cooperation with others creates a  business team that leads to results. By taking action from your place of power, your strengths, you open yourself to greater confidence, clarity in your communication style and showcase your ability to lead.
  4. Stay in the game.  Take action, take initiative. Being able to consistently challenge yourself, growing with new opportunities and a willingness to be uncomfortable gives you the skills and courage to stay in the game.  Business is not about being easy, it’s about challenging yourself to be your best and making it look easy.
  5. Take chances.  One of the greatest skill sets that successful business men and women have is the ability to trust their instinct/intuition and take chances.  Chances provide you the opportunity to stretch yourself, to test your limits.  It’s gives you the experience necessary to learn. Chances lead to success and to failure and failure is an important step in the process.  It’s not failure unless you stay down.  It’s the getting up where strength, courage, inner worth and desire to succeed are produced.  The more chances you take the better you get at taking them.
  6. Use your instinct and intuition, trust it.  Instinct and intuition are an internal compass, pointing you in the direction to go. It takes skill, time, patience and practice to use them well.  Time alone, reading, meditating, working out, yoga, fishing, being in nature are some ways to provide you the resources you need to build your instinct and intuition.  Listen to your inner voice, trust in the wisdom, the actions to take and your ability to succeed.
  7. Surround yourself with like minded people.  People who succeed spend time with others who succeed, think of it as “The Success Club”.  They hold each other up, celebrate successes, build you up and know you’re on the move.  People with goals, visions and direction have no time for stories, problems or distractions. Find people who have the success you want and spend time with them, join their circle of friendship.  Attend events with other success driven people.  Go be the successful business man/woman you want to be.

 

Create a plan, have a vision and go out and get it.  Succeeding in business requires you to do the personal work necessary to grow, step out on a limb and take flight.  Be bold, be courageous and be the woman or man everyone wants to do business with.

Embraced by a larger love, moving from ambition to meaning

 

Bacons-stained-glass-window-4-largeMoving from ambition to meaning

There comes a point in your life, whether you stop and wonder,  look around you questioning what you have and what you’re doing, or just recognize and acknowledge your life is not everything you want. I’m talking about want from an inner perspective. You see all the things you’ve acquired, the degrees earned, titles held, the way you spend your time energy and money, really hold no meaning to you.  They’re not aligned with your true values. Once you reach this level of consciousness, a whole new world opens up to you, literally and figuratively.

This consciousness brings with it a new level of risk. A risk where you begin trusting in the unseen, you become the observer, peeling back the layers that once held power over you.  It requires humility, compassion and most importantly, self love. This level of risk is a vulnerability to the aspects of your life that you built which held meaning and power to you and for the life you built.

Moving to meaning.  In this new choice, meaning is everything that you value from your heart, body and mind.  It asks for you to listen to the message within your heart, feeling the truth in your body which sets you free.  The feeling of ease, simplicity, grace and flow. It asks your mind to let go, release and surrender to the opening.  It’s only through the crack in the darkness can the light enter.  Like stained glass windows and décor, the effects of the light, sunlight reflecting light can your true beauty shine.  This is your journey through the darkness into the light, where your sense of identity is broken- you transcend into the next phase of your growth. Your truth. Where things hold no meaning over you.

Where you claim your power. The power you hold within, to make conscious choices and decisions, to act from faith and belief in yourself, and to stand your ground for what you believe in.

Empowerment. The true gift in empowerment is you choose where you invest ( I choose not to use the word spend here), your time, energy and money.  When you are empowered the choices you make with your resources, time, energy and money, will add increase to your life and to those you touch.  The resources exchanged will be an asset on both sides, adding to growth.

Let me elaborate.  In ambition, you are looking to get a bigger home, a fancier car, a better body, more of the external with the spending of your resources to get something that you believe will make you have or feel a certain way.  Moving to meaning, you decide to invest your money in a home that makes you feel safe, secure and provides you a temple, a sanctuary to rest your head.  It may still be a big home, yet the meaning behind it is what it provides you.  In that safety and security you make better choices and decisions.  When in meaning, rather than complaining about how much the fitness program costs, the gym, private training, the fresh foods, the time it takes to workout, being to busy, not having any energy, you decide to look at the overall lifestyle of having health, you recognize the investment you are making towards your health which will pay generously as you grow and mature.  You are consciously investing in your health today, so later you’re not at the mercy of the Dr.s and medical system.  In ambition you are looking for doing it all, showing up for everyone.  You want to be seen as successful, only doing it all leaves you unfulfilled on the inside.  In meaning you leave that all behind.  You choose to say, “what makes me happy.  What can I do to be of service that gives to me that which I give to others?”  You decide to find peace, grounding and stability in trusting yourself, your gifts, your OWN INHERENT WORTH, which has nothing to do with a title, money or status.  In this you find Freedom.

You Thrive.

While in meaning you choose habits, patterns, places and experiences that nourish you.  You choose to leave the realm of excuses, problems and difficulties to stand in your place of power in the realm of solutions, gratitude, trust, compassion, and the present moment, a consciousness of richness found within that supersedes anything external.

It is here, You give meaning to your greatest gifts, your values, and power flow through you, from a place of love.
