What is the consensus view of reality: And how does accepting it limit our potential?

The collective consensus reality of ‘how the world is’ is a collection of ideas that have been established, built upon, refined, and subsequently enforced by those in power for thousands of years. This does not mean that their view of reality is correct, however, it is the current view that most of us accept and live by. How has this consensus reality been maintained? Current political systems continue to push ideas that reinforce the status quo. The main idea being that, as individuals, we are unable to look after ourselves and need continued ‘guidance’ from those who are wiser than

Do you want a better life? Then seek transformation instead of information

Do you want a better life? Then seek transformation instead of information

Do you really want a different life than the one you have now? I’m assuming that you want to make it ‘better’ in some ways than the life experience you are currently living. Do you realize that this means you will have to change things about yourself, not other people? Other people are not responsible for creating our lives. Our life experience is our responsibility and if you are blaming other people or other events/circumstances for your reality then you are playing at being a victim of circumstances. The benefits of being a ‘victim’ is that you do not accept

What is Karma: Why it doesn’t pay to judge ourselves or others?

What is Karma: Why it doesn’t pay to judge ourselves or others?

Karma can be defined as ‘the spiritual principle of cause and effect where the intent and actions of an individual influence the future of that very person.’ This means that the way others behave towards us contributes towards their karma, and the way we respond contributes to our karma. When we understand this, we know that nothing happens by chance, and therefore everything in our life happens for our benefit so that we can learn and grow from our experiences! We are all students here, learning about life on earth and most of us still have unresolved issues, things that

Everything is Energy: Including our body, thoughts, emotions, and spirit.

Everything is Energy: Including our body, thoughts, emotions, and spirit.

“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.” Albert Einstein. Our consciousness resides in our physical body. We are fortunate that the necessary functions our bodies require, to sustain life, are automatic and need no conscious thought on our behalf. Imagine if we had to think every time we wanted: our heart to beat, to control where the blood flow was most required our lungs to breathe, our muscles

Am I doing something wrong? Life is not fair!

Am I doing something wrong? Life is not fair!

I grew up with 2 brothers and 2 sisters. Resources were sometimes scarce, so we were always taught to ‘be fair.’ This meant sharing what we had and trying to get along the best we could with what we had. When commenting to an older and wiser acquaintance one day about some current situation in the world that I thought was not fair, he simply said, ‘Who said that life was meant to be fair?’ It was like a light being switched on in my brain as I realized that what he said was absolutely true! Why hadn’t I known

Are you a Human Being or a Human Doing? Human Beings have better lives!

Are you a Human Being or a Human Doing? Human Beings have better lives!

Most people are busy ‘doing’ instead of ‘being.’ The problem with being busy all of the time, doing stuff, is that we tend to miss a lot of the signals in our lives which are there to guide us towards the life we desire to create for ourselves. Our lives are actually full of ‘potential’ with so many options available to us right here and right now. What do we actually choose to see? How do we define, and then react to, what we are seeing? The answers to these questions tell us much about the way our mind is

What is emotional intelligence: Part two- How to develop it!

This is part two of a blog I started yesterday which explains what emotional intelligence is and why being aware of our emotional state and reactions is very beneficial to us. Go here to see part one of ‘What is emotional Intelligence?’ _________________________________________________ I’m not willing to change. I’m happy to remain unhappy! Not everyone wants to feel ‘better’ for whatever reason. Some people are comfortable to be in a permanent state of stress, as this is all they have ever known. Some relate the feeling of emotions with pain and fear due to past emotional experiences when others have

What is personal growth and development? It’s all about you!

Asking this questions shows that you are ready to move forward into a different stage in life than the one you are currently living. If you were not ready you would not be searching for personal growth and development. You would be content with your current life, knowing that your future is going to be quite similar to your present. Let me tell you this: You are alive at this time, in this place, to live a great life! Are you fully embracing life or is there more you want to achieve? Will you do what it takes to move

What is Emotional Intelligence? And why should I care?

What is Emotional Intelligence? And why should I care?

Mainstream science is beginning to accept more and more, due to successful research, the importance of ‘emotional intelligence.’ You may ask, but ‘what is emotional intelligence and why should I care?’ The definition of emotional intelligence means having the ability to recognize, direct, and positively express emotions by involving the heart as well as the mind. It has never been a secret that emotions play a huge role in our overall well-being. However, it has taken the scientific community time to wake up to this obvious fact and to be able to conduct experiments to verify it. Emotions were not

Meaningful ways to connect to our spiritual SELF

Meaningful ways to connect to our spiritual SELF

While we are here on Earth, each of us has a unique life, and we are here to learn different lessons about living as a human being. However, we are so much more that just this physical body and mind that most of us relate to. And this becomes very apparent when we begin to seek out our true nature. By becoming an observer to our own life, we can come to the conclusion that we are not this human being, but we are something more, something greater than this body and mind. Below I have listed some ways in
