Monday Morning Motivation
In order to reach your full potential you must keep expanding your comfort zone. To expand your comfort zone you must reach, stretch and grow. Try something you have always wanted to do. Try something you have never done before. Do something that excites you or do something that scares you.
Your body does the same thing physiology wise whether you are excited or afraid; the heart races, the sympathetic nervous system increases activity, and the brain begins to signal the increased production of hormones. When you are excited or afraid your emotions become more powerful. The only difference between the two is in your brain. The next time you try something that scares you tell yourself you are EXCITED and dare to reach for the stars. You are of course, made of stardust!
The Divine, the Universe, God, Source, (whatever name you use), is only Love. It only knows Love. It only speaks Love. It only shares Love. Love is the core of what it is and the core of who you are. It only says I Love You!
The Universe is for you, always moving you into more of who you are meant to be. It does not judge you, it does not punish you, it does not wish you harm. It does reflect back to you whatever you are vibrating. Raise your vibration to the energy of Love, surrender your life to the energy of Love and watch miracles shower you with Love.
Today is the first day of autumn here and change is happening. The days are shorter, the nights are cooler, the air is fresher and the colors of the leaves are beginning to change into vibrant shades of red, orange, yellow, pink and gold. It is my favorite time of year!
With all the changes happening in nature we often find changes happening in our own life. School is back in session for many. For some it is the first day of school, whether it’s preschool or college it is a major change for a family. For others it is the first day of work or a new job; a major step in life. It’s also a time for many weddings which will bring on significant changes for a couple. Whatever changes are happening in your life remember change symbolizes growth. If you are changing you are growing and that’s a good thing. Keep growing!
The clouds, the storms, the darkness, all of it is meant to help you reach higher, meant to help you grow. All of it designed to help you remember who you really are: a precious child of the Divine! It may not always feel like it but remember the sun shines behind the clouds, there is calm after the storm, and there is light to cast out the darkness.
Remember to look for the sun, the golden nuggets of wisdom hidden in the storms. Remember to remain calm when things are spinning all around you. Remember to let your Light shine as bright as possible to help you (and others) make your way out of the darkness. Remember to rise above the clouds no matter what.
The quality of your life is directly related to the quality of your questions. We ask questions every day; become aware of the conversation you have with yourself. What questions do you ask yourself? Do they empower you or do they diminish you? Your brain is like a computer if you ask it a question it will search for the answer. Great questions will lead to great answers which will lead to a great quality of life.
Ask questions that bring answers to empower you not diminish you. Questions like; Why doesn’t anyone love me? How come I never have enough money? Why can’t I lose weight? are dis-empowering, they diminish you. You don’t want your brain searching for those answers. On the other hand questions like: What am I grateful for? How can I let more love flow through me today? How can I make my body stronger and healthier today? What can I do today that will take me to the next level? are all questions that will bring answers to take you higher. Ask yourself questions every day that will make you ponder, expand your vision, help you discover something, take positive action or awaken you and you will have a great quality of life.
You have 7 major energy centers called Chakras; the first is your Root Chakra, located at the base of your spine, this represents the feeling of being grounded connected to Mother Earth, it is red; the second is your Sacral Chakra, approximately 2″ below your belly button, it represents abundance, creativity and sexuality, it is orange; the third is your Solar Plexus Chakra approximately 2″ above your belly button, it represents confidence, personal power and sense of self, it is yellow; the fourth is your Heart Chakra; located at your heart, represents your ability to love and be loved, it is green; the fifth is your Throat Chakra, located in your throat it represents your ability to communicate, it is blue; the sixth is your Third Eye Chakra, located on your forehead between your eyes it represents your intuition or inner vision, it is violet; the seventh is your Crown Chakra, located at the top of your head it represents your connection to Divine, it is white.
To open your chakras imagine energy flowing from Mother Earth to your Base chakra then flowing through all the chakras. See the energy spinning in each chakra as a ball of light the corresponding color for each chakra flicked with crystals so it sparkles. Energy flows to each chakra and from each chakra to the next one connecting them. It also flows out the front and back of each chakra. When you get to your crown chakra see the energy coming out the top of your head flowing into the Universe connecting with the Divine. When your Chakras are open and the energy is spinning freely through them you are, you feel, you do, you love, you speak, you know and you understand!
Today is a new day filled with endless possibilities! Yesterday’s thinking brought you to today but yesterday is over. Today is a new day, a new opportunity to begin a new life. Fill your day with new thoughts, new beliefs, and new actions that will take you to a higher level. As you bring these into each new day you will see your life begin to shift. Believe this shift will bring better days. Believe that today and every day will be brighter.
Gratitude is so important. It is the first step to receiving more. Far too often people focus on what they don’t have. They focus on what is missing in their life and focus on what they lack. Whatever you focus on you get more of so be careful what you focus on.
Spend this week paying attention to what you focus on. Spend time paying attention to all the things you can be grateful for. The simple things that happen every day; a kind word, a friendly smile, a thoughtful gesture. Look around you and notice the beauty of the day. Notice the wonder of the world around you and the wonder of your own being. Give thanks for the miracle of your body, the miracle of the Universe. Give thanks for everything, even the little things we sometimes take for granted.
There is a strength of character to you that you haven’t fully realized yet. There is a depth of love within you that you haven’t tapped into yet. There is a precious gift that only you can give that you haven’t even unwrapped yet. There is something that you are to share with the world that you haven’t touched upon yet. There is a greatness to you that you haven’t discovered yet. Discover your greatness!
Discover the love. Discover the gift. Discover the greatness that lies within. Share all of it with the world. Your greatness is needed in the world now more than ever!
There may be times in your life when you feel confused about something. You may not know which way to turn, which path to take, what to do. This confusion is often because your heart and your head are not aligned. Your heart tells you to do one thing but your head says do something else. This can certainly cause confusion, leave you feeling stressed and stuck.
To gain clarity and clear up the confusion align your heart and your head. To do this you must quiet the mind chatter and the emotions. You must go into the silence of your own being. You have an internal guidance system that knows which way to go. Be patient and be still for as long as it takes for the answer to reveal itself. The answer will come for your soul knows the way. Trust that still small voice and surrender to the Divine guidance for it will align your heart and your head. It will bring clarity, relieve stress and help you move into more.
