[Ep 55] Are You Giving Only 70%?

  • Reading time:2 mins read

In this episode, I’ll be chatting with you about why you are only giving 70% of yourself to a certain goal.

Most of us are living way below our potential. Some of us are living close to our potential, but for some reason, we are afraid to fully touch our potential.

We dip our bodies in, but we leave out our shoulders and head due to some odd fear.

I’ve been thinking about my 2016 and how I have spent my days and I’ve been doing a lot of contemplation and introspection about my 2017 and how I want to spend my days.

[Ep 54] Creativity And Sexuality Are Intertwined

  • Reading time:3 mins read

In this episode, I’ll discuss how sex can be used as a source of procrastination and how creativity and sexuality are so interconnected that we can use one to affect the other. The deep connection that exists between creativity and sexuality cannot be denied. Both are creative forms of energies in their essence. 

In our mainstream culture, sex is a form of easy and instant gratification and distraction. Because of the immediate joy and pleasure we get from it, we primarily maximize sex as a tool to distract us from the work that we were supposed to be doing.

The intention behind our sexual acts should always be considered. If we are consciously using sex as a distraction then that’s fine, but I think it becomes an issue when sex is used unconsciously for years, and decades as a way to get away from the present moment.

Sex at that point becomes not a means of connecting to a person you like or love or lust after. It isn’t just a refuge we choose to seek when are afraid of what the present moment could mean for us. It isn’t a shelter we run into when we are scared of the present moment. It is so much more than that, so much more.

[Ep 53] Create a Jealousy Map to Guide Your Decisions

  • Reading time:3 mins read

In this episode, I’ll be chatting about using jealousy as a guidepost to our heart’s desires, rather than an emotion to be avoided. I call these Jealousy Maps.

Normally, jealousy is used in a negative light. We believe that if we feel jealousy then we are horrible human beings, who are imperfect, and that, we should never ever feel jealousy if we are to be good. Jealousy is avoided, eschewed, and demeaned as an emotion.

The key in turning it around is by using all these insights we gleaned from our feelings of jealousy and wield it as a weapon to enhance and transform our lives for the better. Jealousy has an important lesson in it that we miss if we avoid listening to its message by running away from it.

Do You Have An Anxious Heart? Try Out This Meditation

  • Reading time:5 mins read

If you know me at all, or have read any of my other posts, you know I am a serious connoisseur of meditation. I believe in my heart-of-hearts that meditation is a cure-all. If everyone on this planet meditated, it would eliminate disease, war, poverty, and any of the other evils that ail the human race. But everyone doesn’t meditate, and I am on this quest to get people to meditate. In this quest, I have created this funky new meditation. Let me explain how it came about.

In my opinion, if you have an itch and it needs to be scratched, a lot of times you can’t find the solution to the itch in the market place. 2 out of 3 times you will be able to find a solution that fits okay, but sometimes you won’t be able to find a solution at all.

I have an anxious heart. Whenever I am stressed or scared or feeling any kind of emotion, it starts thumping about like a rabbit in a barrel (just made this up, I call poetic license). I didn’t want to numb the thumping. I wanted to hear it beat, and calm it down by talking to it. Instead of feeling so out of sorts, because my heart is feeling so anxious, I decided I would try out different things to calm it down.

We Live And Die Under The Illusion Of A Thousand Tomorrows

  • Reading time:8 mins read

I have a procrastination problem, where I keep on pushing off my work from one day to the next, to the next, to the next, until I realize that the item I pushed off for months on end, isn’t even relevant anymore. Yikes. I see it happening, but like a car accident that’s gone too far, I cannot prevent it, all I can do is watch it happen over and over again, in a nightmarish way. No matter what app I use or how many admonishments I give myself, I keep on doing this over and over again.

There are two reasons for it. The first being that a lot of these items I am pushing off aren’t important to me, or aren’t important in general. If I was able to push them off for months on end, without any ill consequences to me, that means they weren’t truly necessary tasks, but just something nice to do. This reason is important, but not as important as the second reason, which is that, I live under the illusion that I am going to live forever.

That is the only reason I would keep on pushing off my tasks over and over again to this illusionary land called tomorrow, where I am a different person who gets everything on her to-do list done. If I believed that I was going to live forever, and I have a hundred or thousand or million tomorrows at my disposal, I can move off my tasks to those tomorrows, and still get all of my work done.

[Ep 52] Find Your Tribe to 10x Your Life

  • Reading time:2 mins read

In this episode, I’ll be chatting about the importance of finding your tribe or community to really get the support you need to grow your life and business.

Loneliness frequently stems from isolation. When I first quit my job and began my online business, I felt incredibly alone. Though I am learning a lot from various online forums, I felt lost and started questioning the path I am currently taking. Being a social creature, I began hating my path and everything I do. 

My first attempt to break through this was finding my first tribe – people who think like me, individuals who are working on their online business and who believed that there is more to life than 9-5 jobs, those who make it a point to travel as the norm and not as a mere fad. They made me realize that the kind of life I want isn’t just a castle in the air.

[Ep 51] Say Yes To Everything To Be Truly Alive

  • Reading time:2 mins read

In this episode, I’ll be chatting about the value of saying yes to everything that the universe sends your way. This way, you are telling the universe thank you for everything, and I trust your path for me.

If there is one common experience that all of us share and has been through, it is this: saying no to almost every single thing that the universe hurls at us. Most often than not we utter more “no” than “yes” when an opportunity presents themselves upon us.

No is the usual response when confronted with new experiences. I often find myself in that situation, and it made me feel like living in a tiny and limited world that limits human potential.

Everything Is Perfect In Hindsight So Make It So Right Now

  • Reading time:8 mins read

If you looked back at your life right now, you will see a pattern in your life. A pattern that is apparent to everyone in hindsight. Think about the last time your life was imperfect, and something went wrong. You were in dire straits, you were crying, or angry about it, you felt like your life would never be the same again. Everything was tumbling upside down in that moment and perhaps for a few more moments after that.

Then, a few days after or a few weeks after, you wondered what all the fuss was all about? What were you so upset about? What happened? You might try to remember that anguish you felt, but the emotion you felt has faded in your mind, and you feel nothing for that oh-so-momentous occasion. It seemed so important back then. It seemed like everything was going to fall apart in your life, but nothing actually did. Everything is normal now, and you are back to the humdrum of everyday life. What happened there?

Not only that, you are sitting here a few years later, looking back at that part of your life, and you realize that that bad thing which happened to you needed to happen for you to be where you are right now. If that particular thing hadn’t happened, you wouldn’t be where you are right now.
