I used to live in Dallas TX and I would often miss the turning of the seasons. Summer it seemed would hang on until quite suddenly winter appeared. I enjoy the much more subtle shift that occurs here in the Pacific Northwest. What I am enjoying the most is the feeling of abundance that comes with the time of harvest. It is a time to gather with friends and break bread and share time and stories together. Most of all for me it's a time of gratitude and being thankful for all that the year has presented to me so far.
I have been rereading, " The Most Important Thing" by spiritual teacher Adyashanti, and it was on the second reading that this statement really resonated with me. This is a very difficult concept to embrace especially for a spiritual guy like me. Someone who knows that he is spending his life helping people solve some pretty difficult problems. I of course am in service to good, so I thought. This is not something that I would speak out loud yet it was definitely a part of my internal narrative.
What I have found recently is that it is possible to do good work without being entirely clear about why I do it. There is a certain "ideology of the good" that is fairly easy to slip into and the assumption that because you help people, how you do it is not as important.
Looking for the best self-confidence hypnosis to find that elusive trait that others seem to manifest so easily? It can certainly burden your everyday life to suffer from a crisis of confidence, perhaps feeling you are the only one with this issue. Having low self-confidence can make you feel uncomfortable in social situations, stop you from going for the promotion you want, or advancing in your professional and romantic life the way you deserve. That is no way to live and you don't deserve to silently suffer from false beliefs about yourself. Self-confidence hypnosis can help boost your inner-morale and set you on a better course to enjoy life as you want to. Let's go over how many people try to boost their self-confidence through outward appearance, how self-confidence is expressed, and why self-confidence hypnosis can get to the core problem.
Summer Solstice- Gratitude for an Open Heart
I returned from eastern Oregon early this morning and I am committed to allowing the beauty that I feel in my heart to continue. Returning to our seemingly busy lives after spending the better part of a week in ceremony is a opportunity to begin to assess what is truly important. When we step outside of our routine we have a chance to look at not only what we do but how we do it. If the expansive open hearted feeling that I returned with is important to me, then I will allow it to continue. Doing so begins with trusting that it is not only possible, it is our natural state of being. The purpose of the ceremony was to invite a new way of interacting with the world. We were invited to become co-creators, to be active participants in this change process.
Life Hack Number 7-Begin with Strong Intention
I always say that change begins with a strong intention, so why is it last in this series? It is last because without having a strategy and a method of tracking the behavior change, it will be of little use. Let's be honest we all want a magic bullet a pill or a diet or even a hypnosis session to cause some rapid change. We essentially want years of non-productive behaviors to go away and never come back and the marketers who sell you stuff, want you to buy into that billion dollar fairy tale. We look at the sexy bodies and fill up our garages with dust gathering exercise equipment. Did it occur to us, that the sexy fit body took time to get that way, not really because we bought the fantasy.
