Why My Dad Says I’m Unemployable..

Why My Dad Says I’m Unemployable..

I’ve always rebelled against systems and done things my way; but, that didn’t always go over well in school, at a job or with my parents rules and beliefs. I didn’t like anything that bounded me and always felt like I had a better way of doing things.
Teachers, family, my peers and society attempted to put me into a uniformed box by telling me what I can and can not do, say and think – going against everything I believed in – Including my personal freedom.
It seemed that in most schools and businesses, there was a lack of team or leadership skills and it was painful and discouraging when my ideas and feedback was disregarded without any discussion or consideration. I felt let down and disappointed by societies suppression of individuality and the outdated systems that create conformity.

Even though I went from high school drop out, who was lost and confused; there was a driving thirst inside that wanted more out of life than the social systems imposed on me.
Through courage and determination I found my way!
I became a personal trainer, began running events, and owned an integrative medical centre.
The key to my success in these areas, and continues to be, is that they were expressions of my life’s purpose and my passion to support others in creating the best life possible. To support others in also living their purpose, from the heart, with a sense of freedom and in a state of gratitude and happiness.

At 26, after losing 80lbs and then becoming a personal trainer, I felt a calling and longing for a deeper understanding of myself and life. I set out in search to learn more. I attended a Tony Robbins event called Date With Destiny that rattled me to the bone. It turned my world upside down and it totally changed my life.

It was at that event that I realized I didn’t have to keep pushing against my conditioning, but instead, I could step into my greatest potential! I didn’t have to have a job just to pay bills and keep a roof over my head. I could actually do something I love, that I’m passionate about, that would make a difference in this world and have a positive impact on others. I could get paid to do all of that!
So can YOU!

At that event I called my boss, at the time, and told him I quit.
The taste of sweet freedom to be my own person and do things on my terms has been the best decision I have ever made!
I’ve never looked back and my life has never been the same.

I must say, however, being your own boss is not luxurious: it takes commitment to yourself, your purpose, and to something greater than any one person. It means learning and growing everyday. Through your passion you will find better and more efficient ways of doing the things you don’t always want to do. It means long hours and laser like focus to create your vision. It means falling, a lot, and getting back up. It means a lot of no’s until you get a yes. It means trusting yourself and listening to your inner guidance, even when the outside world is saying something else. It means YOU are solely responsible for your wins and your losses. You fail, you learn, you move on, or, you allow it to consume you and lose sight of what you’re here for.
The great thing is, that it is all YOUR choice.

Then, eventually, you learn about something called balance, which is the only thing that keeps you sane. It’s your saving grace. It’s where you refuel to keep going.

After all the hard work, commitments, sweat and tears, you start to see the light. You get glimpses into the impact your life’s work is having on the world and those around you. That impact is what continually stokes your inner flame.
When you become successful, in whatever form that takes on for you, you have a genuine sense of living your truth, a deeper peace and knowing that you’re aligned with your purpose. You know that what you’re sharing and contributing with the world is much bigger than just you alone..
It becomes an expression of your heart, of what you feel you came here to do.
It becomes a space of soulful gratitude that is unexplainable with words.

Since I was a kid I’ve always beat to my own drum. My dad told me that from a young age I knew what I wanted and always went for it. There’s something inside of me that has an innate knowing of what is true. I listened to that truth and no matter what anyone else had to say, I followed it.
I believe you have that too.

I’m inviting you to fully step into your Greatness and Purpose..

To do more than just survive each day, to change your routine, to do something different, do what inspires you! Get uncomfortable. Do something you’re terrified of but have always wanted to do. Live this life to the fullest! Everything out on the table. No regrets, no holding back. Live your life the way you know it can be.

I leave you with one of my favourite quotes to live by..

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!”

~ Hunter S. Thompson

Getting To The Heart Of Manifesting

Getting To The Heart Of Manifesting

heart1

Manifestation – it’s on the minds and lips of most everyone today who studies, practices, and has committed to what we call “New Age Thought.”  The SecretThe Power of Now, and even classics such as Peale’s The Power of Positive Thinkingand Hill’s Think and Grow Rich have u-turned many back to the origins of the “you create your own reality” edict, all proclaiming that our thoughts indeed have power to create. Be in the moment, visualize your dream reality and you can make it so.  All of these mantras do have validity, but there is one key ingredient; perhaps the single most influential conduit to consciously creating our reality – the heart.  But how and why is the heart of the human being – the magical rain maker, the instrument that has apparent non-local ability to pull “stuff” out of the ethers and into the 3D world?

First, it behooves us here to have a brief think about the law of attraction (LOA), whereby the proclamation of like attracts like is a fundamental tenet of the universe.  Another idiom – Energy goes where attention flows, and so on.  As Lisa Nichols explains in The Secret that if you open an envelope expecting to get a bill, chances are that is exactly what you’ll find.  Conversely, if you have an expectation (the thought) of receiving a check in the mail – voila, your thought will manifest that long awaited tax refund that was 3 months late.


The Real Secret is:  There is more to the story…

The Secret no doubt served as an important primer, indoctrinating millions into a new (or re-newed) way of contemplating their every thought and moved those toward a proactive routine of abundance creation using picture scrapbooking and visualizing images that can stir up the energy to attract that very object or scenario.

Thoughts are a powerful precursor to creating one’s reality, but if you look at instances in which thoughts, especially those which were redundant, created an outcome that seemed to correspond perfectly to the thought, what was behind it?  The feeling!

Let’s look at that.  Have you ever taken notice of the feeling that comes every time you think of something that you may be anticipating?  Something you are worrying about will bring a feeling of anxiety.  Something that you are looking forward to like a vacation will bring a feeling of excitement.  It’s a physical sensation that corresponds with the thought.  If it’s an authentic thought, you can’t escape the feeling.  Have you ever taken notice of how you feel when you receive news that may be shocking or unexpected?  Your heart will emit a physical vibration, whether it’s a pounding of fear or surprise or a fluttering when you’re around someone that you are attracted to.  How do you feel when you are in absolute gratitude about something that has been given to you that you’ve always wanted or when you are absorbed in sadness from a tear jerker on TV or the grief over a departed loved one?  The heart has a physical sensation that is associated with every emotion that we carry – and that may be the key to how and why realities manifest via the heart.


The Heart Has Intelligence

Most are familiar with the perennial wisdom of James Allen’s “As a Man Thinketh” which was borrowed from the biblical text that says “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”  The intimation with this brief passage is that the heart apparently has some ability tothink and have consciousness.   From this passage we can deduce that “he” will become that which he thinks (feels, emotes) from the heart – his reality, circumstances, lot in life et al.

An interesting study conducted by the Institute of Heartmath (www.heartmath.org) revealed that from an electromagnetic perspective, the heart carries at least 50 times more energy electrically and 5,000 times more magnetically than that of the brain, making it the single most powerful energy generator in our bodies.  Simply put – this means it has juice!

When you look at the field of possibilities; that which exists in the invisible realm that many have simply called “The Field,” or “The Zero Point Field,” you can reason that somehow our consciousness, that which was born out of this field, is still connected to it, but there must be some sort of conduit or energy string that allows for that connection.  There are numerous accounts throughout history that have anecdotally yielded a curious phenomenon that point to the fact that many of our greatest inventions, artistic creations and even prophecies were gleaned from some connection to this invisible albeit authentic realm.  In nearly every case of these magnanimous manifestations, the experiencer will speak of their being in a state or feeling of focus, bliss and emotional abandon which precipitated a synchronization with the Universe.  Subsequently, the answer to a perplexing mathematical problem would be realized, or a flow of musical inspiration would dance its way onto a sheet of paper, culminating in a grand and complex symphony.  Have you ever noticed how you feel while listening to a powerful symphonic piece, all instruments in perfect symmetry and synchronization?  It’s as if the original emotion that was used to put the pieces of the musical construct in order affected our own electromagnetic field which of course is received chiefly by the heart!

It seems that the heart acts as a transmission antenna of sorts, broadcasting via intense feelings, which strengthens the electromagnetic field and thus broadcasts the thought, intention and visualization into The Field.  The Law of attraction then kicks in whereby the Universe acknowledges this broadcast and boomerangs it back into the physical realm in the form of the manifestation.  This you might call the law of reciprocity. 


The Harmonic Spectrum

In David Sereda’s documentary Quantum Communication, it talks about the importance of coherent or harmonic sequence as it relates to the electromagnetic frequencies that the heart emits.  If you are in a state of fear, anger or sadness the heart will produce an incoherent electromagnetic pattern and thus weaken the transmission of thoughts and feelings into the field, usurping our ability to manifest our positive desires.  However, if one is centered within feelings of unconditional compassion, gratitude and love, the opposite will be true, thus creating a strong and harmonic resonance with this field.  A cooperation then ensues and manifestation is primed to take place within one’s physical reality.

Penney Peirce, author of the book Frequency – The Power of Personal Vibration, talks about the impact that the raising of the earth’s frequency is having on the quickening of manifestations, either consciously or unconsciously.  She said, I think (instant manifestation) is absolutely happening and I think in order to really get it to happen, we have to let go of thinking that things occur through cause and effect.  Time used to be linear and it’s not anymore.  Now it’s spherical; it’s all in the moment.  If you get an idea, it’s in there with you and all you have to do is put attention on it and keep attention on it.  You don’t even have to usein-tention because that’s willpower and willpower doesn’t work.  Soft attention is what brings things in – love brings things in, not force.  When you think of imagination like a little movie that you want to picture yourself in, you get in it and you feel it.”

“Feel it.”  That seems to be the secret key to manifestation of all kinds.  Now there is science that appears to be backing this process.  There is a physics to manifestation and its equation lies within the heart.

So next time you set aside a few precious moments to practice manifesting, get to the heart of the matter – the force of materialization literally lies within!

What Is Love?

What is love? 
Image
When all the games and dramas and stories are done… when one reaches a level of awareness and awakening where one sees in a truthful manner… all that can be left is love. You can love only when you do not possess…. when you are not envious or not greedy … when you can be honouring and respectful no matter what the situation… when you can have compassion that comes from a loving heart…. and not from the mind. When you have consideration for all those in your presence… you are touching true love.Love is not something we can do. It is not something that we can cultivate or practice. True love is a happening…. it is becoming a part of the river that is flowing.. full of a force and energy that overwhelms us. When it happens it happens. It is something that is so real and true and all encompassing that it literally takes over…. it moves us into a very high state of consciousness where there is only it. We drop the stories… and all the illusions.

When everything else stops… and we move into this state… then we will experience true love. We move from a unique and separate individual…. to one who is a part of the magnificent whole… where there is no separation … but rather a knowing and feeling and understanding that this whole is life… we move from loving in the mind to experiencing love in the heart.
Loving as a concept is often the source of many of our actions or motivations. Can love that is driven from the mind be the source of truthful living? We are often driven by the needs, the insecurities, the ramifications of the mental process…. we like to think that this is life lived authentically… but is it? A decision based out of the illusions of the mind can only lead to more doing… more distraction… helping to spin the ongoing story of seperation that we believe is our life. It is awareness that reveals the motives… the agendas ….. the paradoxes… and all we need to do is that… be aware…. and soon all of these ploys of the ego begin to naturally fall away… they do not hold their strength or power over us. So begins the process of not wanting or needing to change your mind… but allowing it to be without any resistance or effort to change. We can look at it and see that we have a freedom with the mind. It is still there, but has none of it’s power that it once held.

And it is very difficult to experience that because the thinker is habitually there, evaluating, judging, condemning, comparing, identifying. Can we slow down our experience enough to be able to witness our habitual processes? To evaluate the patterns …. to realize that some of our decisions are coming from a mindset that was established long ago… and to realize that we have succumb to this way for most of our life?

This is the process of awakening.Decisions that are heart based are not really decisions as we believe them to be. A great spiritual teacher once said, “this is life happening automatically”. This is when we naturally flow with life… where we cease to resist what is happening …… when we open to the truthfulness and fullness of being.

Love is where there is neither one nor many…. where there is only love.

It is here that we can experience unconditional peace, bliss and happiness.

And as we are all learning…. love is not something we can get or do…. love is the benediction of the Divine…
