Don't get a big head. You are not the creator. Just a creative conduit. You are merely the medium that was chosen for God or that higher intelligence to work through you. All you need to worry about is to how to become a creative conduit more easily. Allow, allow, allow. Allow for the universe to flow through you. Just allow for the grace of the higher intelligence to flow through your fingers and your heart. Don't resist and don't censor. Let go. Breathe. Deeper. Go deeper. Don't stay at the surface. Don't be superficial about it and let go even more. Breathe even deeper. Belly breaths now. That's it. A creative conduit doesn't have it easy, but we have to keep going. Keep on at it. Letting go and relaxing into the process. A Creative Conduit Has To Relax Themselves More and More How relaxed are you right now? Take a look at your body. How tight are your shoulders? Your…
Most of us know that meditation is a powerful tool that can absolutely and completely transform our lives for the better. Then why aren't we using it in the specific ways that it is meant to be used? Why are we being so fickle or temperamental with its usage? Meditation is a powerful tool, but not just that. In my opinion, it is the ultimate tool to get yourself from 0 to 100 reasonably fast. But most of us end up using meditation as a mind-scrubber rather than a transformative tool. Read on to see how you can use meditation in very specific ways to improve your life. Meditation Is a Powerful Tool To Relieve Anxiety Most people start meditating as a way of relieving their stress and anxiety. It is the ultimate tool for that. In fact, that's one of the reasons I started meditating diligently. I noticed that I felt a whole lot better about my life and everything that…
Are you rushing through life instead of living each moment in the here and now? Are you imagining that there’s something better at the end of the tunnel, at the end of all of that rushing?
I have done that too many times to count. For example, I will be doing my yoga practice, and instead of actually paying attention to what’s going on in my practice, my mind will be a million miles away, thinking about my to-do list.
Even now, as I write this post, no matter how much I try to concentrate and focus entirely on the clicking of the keyboard keys, and the words that swirl in my mind, I feel my mind wandering and thinking, planning and dreaming.
Is this really necessary? Why do I do this to myself?(more…)
I’m sure you have hundreds of ‘important’ things on your to-do list, but perhaps slowing down isn’t one of them. Maybe it isn’t even on your radar.
But as Mother Earth and the universe has given us clear direction over 2020, the planet as a whole needs to slow down, particularly humankind. We have been rushing our way through the Iron Age, the Renaissance, and the Internet Age.
Perhaps the universe has had enough of our nonsense. They must be looking down at us from wherever they are and thinking where are these fools running to? What are they running from? Why is slowing down so hard for them?(more…)
Do you have a beginner’s mindset? Do you realize that you don’t know anything and go in with that thinking into every situation?
Or do you believe that you are the ultimate knower, and there’s nothing that can befuddle or confuse you?
Everyone goes through phases of believing they know everything, until they realize they know nothing. And that in-between phase is where all of the growing up and maturing happens.
I remember when I was a teenager, or in my twenties, I believed I had all the answers to all the questions. Ask me anything, I know it, I used to retort. I had such a huge ego, it’s a wonder I wasn’t buried under its weight.(more…)
Yesterday it was a full moon. Normally, the full moon affects me a bit. But yesterday, it affected me a lot. It was as if everything in my life should be rewritten. I hated my job, my country, my life, my limbs, my everything. My heart space was tight.
I wanted to hit the reset button, but there was none to be found. It was as if I was in the middle of a great storm, and I couldn’t see my way out of it. I was in the thick of things, and I was mired with doubts, frustrations, and anxieties.
It was not a good place to be in.
Normally, what I do with these situations is I hit the reset button on myself, by going to sleep. A meal and a nap, if it’s the middle of the day, or a long night of restful sleep, if it’s nighttime, does the trick.
Perhaps, this sleep tactic works for you as well?
But I also realized that by sleeping my problems away, I might be running away from them.(more…)
Something I have noticed for myself is that I love to journal, but after a full day of sitting on my behind, at my desk, or on my meditation cushion, I’m ready for a change of pace. That’s why Voice Journaling is the key here.
It’s not just that I want to go for a walk, because that isn’t enough. I want to vent, I want to grumble, complain, and moan, I want to whine, and bitch. Yes, I want to journal, but I don’t want to sit anymore.
I have figured that creating voice memos (on the iPhone) or voice notes is a great way of doing this.
Whenever I am ready to go for a walk, I pick up my phone, my house keys, and go for a walk, with my headphones on. As I walk, stuff comes up that I want to speak to myself about. Things that I want to vent about or to untangle in my mind.
I walk and talk. And the more I talk, the less confused I feel. Eventually, after a 20–30 minute walk, I’m clear-minded again.(more…)
I have a lot to say on this subject of liver flush and the wisdom and glory of Andreas Moritz for sharing this great natural health treatment with us. He is no more in the world, but his legacy lives on in the world.
I first heard about liver flushes in August 2019 from a friend, who offered me that suggestion when I complained about frequent Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs).
I wasn’t even sexually active then, and I was still getting them frequently, which made me think that something was wrong with my kidneys.
She said that she had read this book by Andreas Moritz that said that liver flushes could help prevent frequent UTIs.
Hmm, I had no idea what liver flushes were, but I was still pretty closed off at that point. I wasn’t open enough to the idea of doing something so drastic with my body, even if it was natural.(more…)
The ways of the universe are mysterious enough that puny humans like us don’t get it. I’m sure that’s true all the time, but especially right now, it seems particularly poignant. I’m speaking about lessons here.
When I first traveled back to Toronto from Thailand (which is like my first home), I didn’t think that I would still be in Toronto 8 months later, due to the pandemic and travel ban in the world.
I thought I would stay for a few months, five or six at most, and then skedaddle my way back to Chiang Mai, where I live most of the year.
The universe had other plans.
I was not the only one the universe had alternate plans for. Many of my friends from Chiang Mai, who had left there to go back to their home countries, were stuck there now.(more…)
