Passions Speak

I believe passion truly speaks through our pulses. It beckons us towards our purpose in life, our highest good.

We often forget how precious each and every moment is. My Sunday nights are usually spent reflecting, introspecting, and realigning to my visions and values. I spend my time thinking about what’s most important and plan my upcoming week doing and investing in those ‘things’.

What gets me so excited is when I think about opportunities, when I think about possibilities and what it would feel like to embrace new ones to help realise my dreams. You see, life can change in any moment. I like to remind myself how in a single moment, everything around me can change, my entire life can be changed forever. I’ve experienced this! Have you?

Life is not all about doom and gloom. There’s so much to celebrate! But it’s also important to stay grounded and recognise that things like natural disasters, illness, accidents, negative circumstances and life in itself can just “happen”. And you have no choice but to roll with it!

Having this foresight helps to keep me grounded! Knowing how vital and precious this moment truly is. This moment. Right now! And when I become present to this moment, everything around me feels alive! I become more passionate about my visions, my dreams, my feelings and life itself. Passion truly starts to speak through my pulses! It’s the shivers, the goosebumps and the hair raisers that physically remind me of the magical and sacred space that we live in. These experiences marry up the physical with the ethereal for me. This feeling is truly beyond the regions of this earth!

Now… what passions will you pursue this week? What pulses will push you to take the next step in investing in your dreams? Go on! Grab every opportunity and embrace change as that is the only constant in life. Keep evolving and watch yourself blossom!

Stay blessed.

The ‘C’ Word

Relax. It’s not what you’re thinking. Read on to feed your own curiosity.

When I was younger I wanted to be older and be an expert at ‘adulting’. And now that I’m older and somewhat wiser (I hope?), I sometimes miss the good old days, the days when nothing really mattered and my heart roamed free of responsibilities and the uncertainty of life.

What I know now is that time flies. It seriously feels like it moves faster than the speed of light.

Looking back in time and reflecting on both the good times and the bad times, the highs and lows, the peaks and troughs, I now realise that I’ve wasted so much time.

I’ve wasted so much time not being fully present in the moments that mattered. I’ve wasted so much time not loving enough. I’ve wasted so much time saying no to opportunities due to my own fears and lack of belief. I’ve wasted so much time questioning rather than accepting and understanding. I’ve wasted so much time feeling like I’m not enough or inadequate. I’ve wasted so much time not being open to endless possibilities and harnessing my power to create. I’ve wasted so much time. And now I can’t get it all back. That’s the sad reality.

I’m not quite sure whether this blog post is going to go anywhere, but I’ll keep writing, trust the process and see what presents itself.

Sometimes we want to see and focus too much on the ‘ending’, the results or the fruits of our labour rather than realigning ourselves with the present moment and the journey itself. It sounds cliched and I write about ‘the now’ frequently but no matter how many times we are reminded of this, we still constantly forget. It’s so easy to get caught up on the results and outcomes, and the truth is the future is not easy to quantify. This is my learning for today. The decisions we make based on the assumptions, beliefs and stories we tell ourselves about our past, present and future dictate what we do on a daily basis, and from moment to moment. The power to choose and live consciously is also heavily influenced by what most people refer to as our ‘self-talk’. And let’s be honest. Our self-talk is not always positive or nurturing is it?

When I write, I always write short snippets of content. I rarely ever write long posts, and to be honest it is simply because I don’t have a long attention span and I find that I digest information more easily when it is fed to me in small doses. And I know this might sound selfish, but I’m not writing this for you or the blogging community. I only write for myself. Everything we do no matter how selfless, compassionate or service-related it is, we do for the benefit of ourselves. Don’t you think that’s true? We do these things because it makes us feel good. And with that in mind, we evolve.

Anyhow, I digress. Going back to speaking of waste. Yes, I’ve wasted a considerable amount of time in my past. So what’s next? What now? Well, given that there’s no going back, and only moving forward and upwards, I am making a commitment. Yikesss! The ‘C’ word gives me the spooks and bouts of anxiety. But I truly am feeling these words so I will continue to write.

I commit to living in the moment. I commit to newness. I commit to learning. I commit to love. I commit to bravery. I commit to myself. I commit to commitment. And the discipline that comes with it!

I think that’s the end. I believe that’s all I have to say. My vessel is empty (for now). My words are complete.

Stay blessed.

Connection

Hello there to my blogging family! It’s been awhile since I’ve written…

Today I’d like to write about Connection. We connect with people, beings, situations and even objects on a daily basis. How blessed we are! Why? Because we have the natural propensity to feel and connect to so many things with our hearts and souls. We have the opportunity to be intimate with various aspects of life and life itself.

Why is connection so important to me? Because each time you meet someone or something or a situation, you have the valuable opportunity to connect and learn from them, it or the circumstances. What’s most important however is our connection to ourselves, our inner being, our inner light. Staying connected to the source gives us great power and the opportunity to live life fully with grace. Discover the sacred within you.

Right now… you can decide to spend this day… this moment… attuned to and connect with life’s goodness. Do all you can to make this the best day possible for yourself and all those around you.

Stay blessed.

Your Body

Sometimes it’s time to stop. It is time to just take a break and stop.

Your body knows. Your body knows everything. Your body is a powerful energy field and every single atom of your existence is filled with life-force.

I’ve had the flu for the last three days and being stuck at home and being forced to stop for the first time in a long while has really made me think. It’s made me think about how I take care of myself and my body. We often take our bodies and health for granted. It’s true, our bodies are like temples. They’re sacred and precious entities. When something is not right within you energetically or physically, it’s time to stop, reflect, mend and move forward. Until you devote some time to nurturing yourself, you won’t be able to perform to your full potential.

Sickness is not a sign of weakness. It is normal. It is simply being human. It is only natural. It’s important however for us to stay in tune with ourselves and our personal needs. Your thoughts, energy and emotions affect your health and body’s wisdom in so many ways. Heal the chaos inside you by taking some time out.

Your body loves you. Love it back! What’s your body telling you today? What’s your mind tell you today? Do you need to stop and take a break? Go on, listen to your needs and take care of yourself.

Stay blessed.
