The unconscious agreements we make with the world -- where we agree to say yes to everyone, even at the expense of our own happiness.
The Yes-es we agree to are not even literal. It is not about us uttering the word, yes, it is our action, taking on more at our own expense because we think we should.
Here's a checklist that you might find useful:
Getting the right perception of self has to be one of the most difficult things to achieve because it requires a high level of self-awareness.
Most people are still working in progress or have not even started in the area of self-awareness.
People you meet or even yourself could be either thinking that they/you are better at something than they/you actually are. Or thinking that they/you are not as good as they/you are when in truth they/you are meeting the standards!
This can be tricky for...
Most of us do not realise how liberating it is to heal.
I'm not talking just about healing our physical being, healing must take place in our emotional/mental selves, and spiritual selves as well. The reason why most of us do not see the importance of healing our other mental, emotional and spiritual being is because we do not see how limited we really are without healing.
When we are physically injured or when we are ill, we are so aware that our movements are limited. Our...
Making decisions is never easy and the worst thing is we are never taught how to make decisions. No one taught us this life skill as we are growing up. No one in school or at home taught us. We only learn through observation. And most of the time we observe people not knowing how to make a decision!
And one of the most ineffective processes is in the making of a pros and cons list! And this is one of the most popular ways in which people base their decisions on.
So the most common...
Thoughts are things. They are not just secret energies we keep in our heads. We create them, and we energise them, we allow them to torture us, or we allow them to nurture us.
The thing is, we often forget that it is our thoughts that create how we feel, emotionally. We think that our emotions just come up randomly or that other people cause us to feel a certain way. In other words, emotions can be controlled by our thinking.
As if we are not complicated enough, we have this thing...
Remember the days when you feel just bleh.
And you find it meaningless to do anything because you are not seeing the results you are expecting.
All you want to do is to crawl into bed and sleep the day away, hoping the mood will go away and tomorrow will be better. The thing is, it is not the day that is causing you to feel this way.
It is you.
Remember these few words, which I tell my clients often: MOVEMENT IS LIFE. When we move — to do...
What is the shadow self?
In simple terms: this is a part of us that we cannot see, it lurks in the shadows and it has so much power that it can compel you to do, feel and think things without your conscious mind having any control over it. Within the shadow are both good and bad aspects of you. So for eg, you could be an extremely talented pianist, but because it is lurking in the shadows you have no idea of your abilities, and you only listen to other parts of the shadow that says...
Ever experienced a time in your life, whether it is for a project, a job, a relationship, where you are uncertain about when and if it is the time to let go?
We feel all of these tension within our hearts and our heads. We feel the burden of the indecision, we feel stuck, we feel paralysed even. And the temptation to run away is strong. Yet we know we need to face the music.
I’m certain every one of us have been through this. And we start questioning:
You know those times when you feel bad about yourself when you put yourself down, feel shame, feel small, feel inadequate, and you’re comparing yourself with other people on social media? That’s the lower ego at work!
The lower ego wants you to be all of that so that you can never see who you really are because when you become who you really are, you will be more powerful than the lower ego.
Some of you may say, well if we don’t feel this way about...
Have you heard of this saying: Designed to win, programmed to fail? This quote is talking about us, humans.
If we believe that we have a soul, or spirit, or inner energy, whatever you want to call it, you will believe that we have been designed to win. Why else would we go into our inner sanctuary and do self-talk, or pray in an outer sanctuary if we do not believe this to be true? Think about it -- whenever we feel out of sorts, or things are not working out, or if we feel deep sadness,...
