Attitude of Gratitude

Gratitude plays a very important role in my life. Its the one thing that I begin and end my day with, its the one thing that has changed my life in seconds and its the one that allows me to expand my awareness a little every single day. Harboring the attitude of gratitude is the way I choose to live my life! I recently made a video about the importance of having an attitude of gratitude and share a personal story, you watch it here.

On my YouTube, I am hosting a giveaway to give thanks, and to give something to the seekers who are choosing to better their life and expand their consciousness. You can watch the video and enter the giveaway, here.

Backstage

What do you do when you feel lost, confused, fed up and overall just really in a fog? That is exactly how I feel right now, and I can’t precisely pinpoint why. It sort of snuck up on me all of the sudden, it didn’t even give me a warning! All my emotions are a jumbled mess in my head. If there was a weather forecast for my head it would say this, “50 degrees with winds at 25 mph and 90% chance of flooding.”

Why do I feel this way? Well, I know that I am in a cycle of self destruction and self loathing right now. As to why I fall into these cycles of cynical disposition with my self, I have no clue. Perhaps a sense of unfulfillment, boredom, lack of joy, lack of self expression, but I think most of all the lack of self worth. I feel like I am doing absolutely nothing with my life, and the reality of the matter is that I am not. I am a lazy bum who loves to sit around all day and just wait…wait for what? I have no clue. Wait for the day that dollar bills pour out of the sky so then I can go on epic adventures around the globe, visiting and escaping from this treacherous world of insanity. But I can’t do that, and I won’t do that. Whats the point in running away, escaping and avoiding? This too is a part of the beautiful journey of life, and it too must be experienced. Because within these sappy, sad experiences lie crucial information about who you are. When you can stop trying to resist this state you can try to understand it and eventually the gift in it. Challenges always come bearing gifts. Every time you have a challenge remember there is also a gift involved, so keep your chin up and let them come. You’ve got this, you can handle anything, because nothing is greater than you. You are indestructible and you cannot be demolished. So stay with it, it too shall pass. Trust. No more comparison to what others are doing, or how amazing and wonderful their accomplishments are. So what if they are doing great things on stage, but do you know what’s going on backstage? You are taking care of the backstage stuff, so the show can shine on the front and center stage. You are taking the time to really understand, embrace and get to know the material so even if the there is glitch during the show.  You will remain calm, but most of all you will be able to stay with your peace and joy. There is no rush or something to have…it happens when it will, your only requirement is that you show up for yourself daily and choose to live this joyride called life. Live it fearlessly, live it with passion and most of all live it with authenticity!

What is, shall be. What is not, shall not be

It was one of those days when you could feel the silence that lingered within the room as though it had crept into your being and quieted everything down. A serene sense of peace smothered you as the silence settled in. You didn’t resist it. You didn’t even try to stop it, but rather you just welcomed it in. Closely with it you sat, as if you were holding its hand tightly and could feel the warmth entangled between both of your fingers. There was never an ounce of doubt in your mind that it would let go of your hand to make its way out, because with its invitation came a knowingness of “What is, shall be. What is not, shall not be”. That was your way of allowing the presence of peace to come forth and take you into its embrace. Together all three of you sat, hand in hand, heart in heart, blissfully cohabiting the same space, but in three very different ways. It was what was felt that really mattered, not what was seen or heard. For just being seen and heard meant something different than feeling. Feeling was the language of lovers, for it was the only thing that has the ability to dissolve, tear apart and remove walls or even mountains. It didn’t need a reason or perfect timing, it came either invited or as a guest. Because of its utter belief in all things unique, beautiful and true. It entered as a gentle glow of a candlelight in a dark room to ignite and lighten the darkness that somberly rested all around it. That was enough for it. It didn’t want anything more or desired anything different, for its only real task was one of light, truth and love. To open all hearts to such a thing because its heart wasn’t any different than anyone else’s, it knew that. And it was sharing with others its knowing. It was sharing its glow and igniting the unlit torches of the soul into magical flames of energy and absolute truth of being, the divine infinity of its own creation.

Dear Monday,

Thanks for having the word “mon” in you. That’s french for “mine”, in case you weren’t aware, Monday, but it makes me think of you more as “my day” and frankly that sounds like a much more promising start to the week.

Happy Monday!

Something Untitled

Being has nothing to do with definition.
Its an essence of an aroma that lingers with every breathe you take.
Being is to the level of awaken and aliveness you present in each moment.
A knowing that you are as you are: complete, whole and perfect,
Without any labels, nouns or titles attached.
You are the barebones of a great work of art, a masterpiece.

Her Knowing, Her Truth

For she sat between what was real and what was not. She didn’t really ever think to consider anything else other than the pure state of bliss and joy she felt deeply engraved onto her being. At times she would be reminded that this outer world is just a mere reflection of a bunch of thoughts, ideas, perceptions and attitudes. She didn’t think it necessary to adopt any such meanings to her viewpoint because her view was undefinable yet unexplainable. It was just the silent calm of knowing and the strong powerful arms of truth, who were her guide in this realm of illusion and suffering. They loved her deeply and stood by her as a light thin layer of glowing fog, which she didn’t know of because she could only feel them as a gentle little ladybug sitting on her palm. It was all she ever needed and all they ever wanted, was to see her beautiful mesmerizing smile that she wore proudly day in and day out, because she had an inner knowing and indestructible truth that she is and would be alright.

40 Day Kirtan Kriya Meditation

In this video, I talk about the Kundalini Yoga Mediation taught by Yogi Bhajan called, Kirtan Kriya Meditation. This meditation is great for breaking habits, emotional balance and overall clarity and calmness. It also helps eliminate negative thoughts and allows for a positive state of mind. The mantra used in this meditation is designed to be uplifting. The sounds comes from the words SAT NAM, which means “Truth I Am”.

The Mediation is done for either 12 minutes or 31 minutes for 40 days {or for however long you would like}. The reason 40 days is suggested is because it takes that amount of time to break a habit and make it last long term.

If you have any questions, please leave them below.  Sat Nam.

The Encounter

A sense of calmness filled my mind
A sense of certainty loomed over my head.
In that moment, I knew that I had tapped into something far greater than I could ever imagine.
It represented a part of me that I had neglected, ignored, abandoned and even killed.
I saw it standing there, right in front of my own eyes and then some how it collided into me.
As if I had merged into it and it had melted into every inch of my being.
Never have I felt the same, it changed me, it took me out of my own head.
It took me to another world, that was the most familiar place I’d ever been to, but at the same time I’d never gone.
I couldn’t understand what was happening, or why it was happening. It just happened and I was along for the ride, witnessing every single breathe I took as it made its way deep into my lungs, nestling right in.
It felt like I was breathing in magic, fairy dust that ignited all my senses into a deep communion that was held together tighter than any knot I could possibly tie. With each breathe, I felt reawakened, re-assured that I was alright, I need not worry or fret. I simply must feel the feeling and drift away into the unknown of the most truthful thing I had ever encountered. That sense of stillness and calmness still lurks within me, even after I’ve awoken back to this delusional realm of reality, called ‘truth’. I carry, the aroma of its love with me as I continue on my adventures, and dive into the blue daily to uncover, discover and recover more of who I am.
