Perspectives. Choices. They affect us daily.
Sometimes our perspectives make us feel as though we are on top of the world and like nothing could get us down ever again. Other days? Well, we just can’t seem to get out of bed or do what’s before us.
Your perspective can show you useful past conditioning and help you make the empowering choices. At other times, your conditioned perspectives can be maladaptive and “appear” to take away any chance of choice. But, you can still make a choice.
“What’s this about, and can I get past my reaction?”, we ask ourselves!
Have you ever asked yourself this question?
I have. Many times. For myself, I’ve come to understand that life is about whatever I choose it to be about in any given moment.
Why? Because I get to decide and I assign the meaning to everything that happens.
And I’ve learned that we have a choice regarding our emotions, even during a medical emergency.
At just 13 years of age, I learned from my father that I had a choice in my response (as he had modeled for me). And we always do, even if we don’t think so due to past conditioning.read more
It could have been wrecked my day. It wasn’t a life or death sort of thing, but if I had believed it, it certainly could have robbed me of my Being-ness, my happiness and of my productivity. And, if I continued it as a habit, it could rob me of my fulfillment and purpose.
Does this ever happen to you?
You’re running behind schedule and you say to yourself, “I don’t have time to meditate right now!”.
It happened with me just the other day. When I looked at my upcoming schedule, my mind told me that I didn’t have enough time to get everything done before my trip. That thought was quickly followed by “I better skip my meditation and dive into those projects right now”.
But, what happened next set me straight and left me with my mouth hanging wide open!read more
Ever said this to your self?. . .
“I’ve spent years working on this issue. I thought I’d already healed this!”
People have said to me:
• I’ve TAPPED until my acupuncture points were raw.
• I’ve MEDITATED.
• I’ve sat in SILENCE for 10 days straight without a word to anyone, giving up Facebook and my smartphone.
• I’ve spent YEARS in therapy!
• I’ve FORGIVEN.
• I’ve PRAYED. And PRAYED.
• I’ve VISUALIZED.
• I’ve been to a sweat lodge.
• I thought I was OVER this issue!
Why is this problem is back again, LaRue?!
You have no idea how many times people have asked me that question. Do you relate? Know of someone who does?
If so, I have an answer for you and it may not be what you think!read more
Do you hold yourself back? Ever put something off for far too long, and after you’ve finally done it you think to yourself, “That wasn’t so bad. I should have done it sooner!”?
A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the two voices we hear inside ourselves. The first voice you have is the voice of God. The second one is the voice of logic. Today’s Insight is about the second voice, which can rob you of your Greatness, your Dreams, and even your Purpose!
Did you know Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Harrison Ford and even Meryl Streep despise seeing themselves on screen? That’s right! Even acclaimed actors still have a critical voice even after their award-winning talent has been validated by the masses. Mindboggling, isn’t it?
In today’s INSIGHT I share how I caught my critical voice in action and what I did about it.read more
