connecting

one of my favorite things to do is kayak. i have a favorite spot that i like to go. i paddle out, enjoying all the water and trees surrounding me.

my mind wanders as i paddle. my thoughts focused and sporadic.

i paddle through the narrows and come into a small outlet that is surrounded by trees. i see green above the water, i see green below the water. the water is clear and smooth.

my mind quiets. i connect to my inner being.

i sit

i float

i think

i relax

i let go

i allow

i connect to me

i listen

i connect to all that is

i be

these moments are my time. my time to connect to myself. to be real with myself. to be aware of what’s most important to me. to be aware of my deepest dreams and desires.

it is these moments that i connect and become aware of what i need to let go, what i need to allow. who i’m being. who i want to be. what i’m doing. what i want to do. what i’m experiencing. what i want to experience. how i’m living. how i want to live. what i’m creating. what i want to create.

what do you do to create the space to connect to yourself? where is it that your mind is energized and serene? where is it that you have moments of awareness for your being? for your dreams and desires? where is it that you let to and allow?

enjoy your moments. connect to you. be.

live your truth!

a simple life

i’d like to live a simple life. but i make life not simple.

there are many wants that i want and it’s a challenge for me to find the balance between healthy wanting and lacking wanting. lacking want leads me to feeling overwhelmed.

when i think of simple it’s not really a simple life that i want.

what i really want is to experience and feel all those things that are important to me.

the question is then, what is important to me?

the next question, am i doing what’s important to me?

someday’s yes, someday’s no.

on someday’s no, i ask myself, what’s important to me? what do i want?

and then, my life goes back to being a little simpler. not because it’s a simpler life, because it’s the life that i want to live. and living the life that i want to live is being connected to me.

being connected to me, that feels good, positive, simple – even when it’s not. that is the energy of being connected.

what’s important to you?

what do you want?

are you doing what’s important to you?

are you connected to you?

live your truth!

centered and grounded

what do you do to get centered and grounded?

it is important for me to get centered and grounded for many different reasons.

for myself so that i connect to the truth and love in me. so that i am aware of what’s most important to me. for myself so that i am a positive energy and i am connected to me.

for my family so that i am present and patient. so that i am open and loving. so that i am ready to laugh and ready to be accountable. for my family so that we are connected.

for being a difference maker, so that i am present and in the moment.  for being a difference maker so i am in alignment and we are connected.

for the world so that my positive energy can flow and be a light and source of positive energy to as many people as possible. for the world so that we are connected.

why do you want to be centered and grounded?

grow

are you growing?

are you becoming more? are you doing more and more of what you want to do? are you doing more and more of what you want to experience?

dscn7318

what do you need for your growth?

  • awareness – do you know what you want?
  • connection – are you connected and listening to yourself?
  • fun – what do you enjoy doing?
  • challenge – where are you coming from?
  • enthusiasm – why do you want what you want?

these are important to me for my growth. when i am growing i’m connected to myself. i’m aware of where i am and what i want. many times, even when it’s hard, i’m enjoying what i’m doing and having fun.

when i’m connected to myself and know what it is that i want i feel enthusiasm and energy to begin creating what i want and growing.

i’m curious, what helps your growth? what are some of the feelings and activities that you do to help you become more?

are you doing more? are you experiencing more?

i and myself

who is “i”? who is “myself”?

i was listening the other day and had some awareness to the pieces of me.

have you ever said to yourself, “i was listening to myself”, “i saw myself”, “i thought to myself” or “i found myself.”

i had never wondered who the “i” of me is, and who the “myself” of me is. i started thinking about the pieces of me differently. i am me, and i like to connect to my inner being. is the myself of me my inner being, and the i of me my thinking mind?

what is the difference between my inner being and my thinking mind?

my inner being is a deep wisdom, truth, energy, source. my inner being knows, believes and trusts. my inner being is calm, serene, positive, and love.

my thinking mind is random thoughts generated from past experience, the now moment, and the future that i want to create. my thinking mind can be positive, negative and everything in between. my thinking mind imagines and wonders “what if”. my thinking mind can get carried away about what isn’t true and become anxious.

having two pieces of me, which me am i the most of? which me do i want to be the most of?

if i am being the “i” of me in my thinking mind, i easily get lost in the daily routines and expectations and live life like a roller coaster.

if i am being the “myself”  of me in my inner being, i am connected to my deepest and truest part of me and live life like i’m flowing with the river.

what part of you are you the most of?

live your truth!

 

rejuvenate your energy

i needed some time away. i was being run by this commitment and this activity, responsibility after responsibility seemed to have a hold of my life and i didn’t have time for myself.

everything that i was doing, everything that seemed to have taken over my life are all things that i have chosen, they are (maybe not as much as when i first began) important to me. but, all of them combined overtook my life that i wasn’t living life, life was living me.

my energy was draining and i wasn’t able to give myself what i needed to keep my energy where i needed it to be and where i wanted it to be. i wasn’t doing activities that were for me; my body, mind and spirit. i wasn’t giving what i wanted to give to what i was doing. i needed to give me myself and rejuvenate my energy.

i needed to get away so that i could re-connect to myself. get in touch with what i want, and what’s important to me. and then to sit still and let my mind quiet.

one day. one day to connect to myself, quiet my mind, slow down, and let the sounds of nature rejuvenate my energy. let nature surround me with the flow of life. energy flowing back into my life. excitement and enthusiasm for the life i want to create flowing in my thoughts again.

i love and enjoy as much time as possible to give to myself in this way and many other smaller and bigger ways. it’s amazing what we can give to ourselves and do for our wellbeing in a small amount of time.

we all need to care for and love ourselves. we need to be able to rejuvenate and keep our energy high. when we care for ourselves, we give to ourselves, and we give to others in our lives fully.

how do you give to yourself? what keeps your energy high? how do you rejuvenate?

take time and give to yourself. give to yourself in the small ways and give to yourself in the big ways. if you need to take time away because you have given and taken too much energy from yourself, do that. you will return with energy, excitement and enthusiasm to live and create life, being a part of all that you choose with happiness and gratitude.

rejuvenate your energy!
