True Self

It seems that these days people are finding themselves on a path to spirituality more than ever.  But really…what does that mean? I feel its different and the same for everyone. I believe, we all have this “true self” inside of us and I have learned from myself and my clients that the more we hide or push our true selves away, the more unhappy or restless our lives become. For whatever reason, it seems easier to just “go with the flow” or “do what everyone else is doing” rather than take a step and see what its like to do our own things. Usually its fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of what others will think. But the funny thing is, your true self is always there no matter what you do. It actually takes more work than we realize to push our true selves away. It can manifest in so many different ways…smoking, drinking, over eating and countless ways of self distruction. So my message to you today is this….think about something- just 1 thing that will help you get 1 step closer to your true self. It doesn’t have to be something major…umless you want it to be…and put it into motion. Don’t try to do…just do it. It can be as simple as just making a decision and just going for it…see what the reprocussions are of freeing yourself and your energy of holding your true self back….and let the rest of the world know and benefit from the amazing person who you really and truly are !

29 Day Giving Challenge

Last September I learned about something that changed my life. It showed me what can happen in and how you can “change your frequency in your life” by simply giving to another person. I learned about a movement called “29-Day Giving Challenge” which was started by Cami Walker and has become a worldwide phenomenon reaching 38 countries. Cami’s original goal was to have 2000 people by 9/29/08 to commit to 29 consecutive days of giving. One thing per day – anything you want, no matter how big or little it is. Whether it’s a flower or 10 dozen flowers, whether it’s a simple smile or holding a door for someone, lending your ear to a friend- it’s a give. And to do these things and hopefully more as your commitment progresses – with an open heart and mindfulness really does change your life. It has certainly changed mine and thousands of others all over the world who have participated. I am now in the beginning of Round 3 and I am so happy to be back and a part of something so amazing. I look forward to ‘kicking it up a notch” in my second half of this round and this is where the fun begins! I challenge you my friends- to challenge yourself. Amazing things will happen in your life- I can promise you that. Visit www.29gifts.org today to find out more about it! And don’t forget to look me up as well !
