WORD POWER

img_1841

The power of the Word.

What does one word mean

when all is meaningless

when words like thoughts are just ideas floating on clouds

made of thin air

with no beginning and no ending.

What does one word mean

when we are all day bombarded by random texts

by thousand words we catch here and there

that we read, we hear and then we forget

What does one word mean

when we spend our days listening to the ones in our heads

all messed up, pulling us here and there

backwards, forwards,

we are running behind them trying to catch them

looking for answers

searching for their meaning in our lives

What does one word mean

when it is lost among all these?

And what would it mean if it were to stand alone,

in its glory

in its power

in its simplicity

It is everything, it is all that is, it is all we are looking for.

LOVE

That is not who I am

hat-head

I am a woman but being a woman is not who I am

I have a job, but my job isn’t who I am

I have a family, but my family isn’t who I am

I have a body, but my body isn’t who I am

I have a country, but my country isn’t who I am

I have beliefs, but my beliefs aren’t who I am

I have thoughts and opinions, but they are not who I am

I have a personality , but this isn’t who I am

I own things, but my things are not who I am

Who am I then?

I AM ME being aware that I am not all that.

We are not the mind

Byron Bay love

The mind is talking always, and we are listening to it.
But we don’t have to.
The mind is talking always and we are identifying with it.
But we don’t have to.
When we realize that we are separate from the mind, then we start to awaken.
If not we spend all our lives in an illusion.
The body is.
We are.
But we are not the body.
The mind is.
We are.
But we are not the mind.

The meaning of life

IMG_5066

What is the meaning of life?

Is it the incessant quest for a future dream object?

The daily building of a future security?

A working path towards retirement?

The search for the happy ending of ever after?

Or is it more noticing what is already there,

what we already have and don’t really need

what our life is full of but that we hardly see

the joy and the love of the present moment

the life and the laughs of the daily instants

the peace and the beauty of nature events

the happiness that is

right

here

right

now.

The Power of the Mind and Meditation

Our mind is a powerful tool. Most of the time, we tend to believe what our mind is saying. We hear a voice in our head and we tend to identify with it. Yet whatever is being said isn’t always true. But if we believe all that we hear in our head then our happiness will only depend on our positive thinking. It is great if we are a naturally born optimist but challenging if our mind is wired on fear or self-criticism.

Also our emotions are strongly linked with our thoughts. If our mind tends to worry about something in the future, we then tend to experience fear in the present moment. It does not mean that this worry will actually happen, it may or it may not. But in the meantime we have created stress for ourselves by listening to those thoughts.Whatever the mind is saying, it will create an emotional response in our body.We have a tendency to spend most of our life reacting and responding to our thoughts without questioning. Yet what if it could be different?

We hold the power within ourselves to change our thoughts and even to stop our mind at once.And when we become able to control our mind, we also become in control of how we experience life.The best tool I know that can bring us this new quality of life is the practice of meditation.

With regular practice, we slowly start managing our thoughts. We become more aware and conscious of all the incessant chatter inside our head. And then we can learn how to completely stop it. Of course it takes time but the peace and happiness that result are definitely worth it.

With meditation regular practice is essential. We can learn different techniques and practice the ones that suit us best. We can join a meditation class in our neighbourhood or enrol in a meditation retreat for a quantum leap in our practice!

Here are 7 Reasons why meditation is good for us and we should start today!:

Health: A stress-free body will repair and heal itself quicker than a stress-full body. Meditation is like fresh air, like healthy food, like physical exercise. It keeps our body and mind in perfect shape and condition.

Happiness: If we learn how to control our mind, then we know how to stop our negative thoughts and replace them with positive thoughts. We then have the power to choose happiness over unhappiness.

Freedom: Meditation will free us from the illusion of the past or the future. It keeps us in the present, the only reality.

Power: Meditation empowers us. We become our own master and we discover the power to create our reality.

Peace: A quiet mind. A peaceful mind. Peace. We can be peaceful no matter what our outside circumstances are.

Charisma: It changes our energy. Our light radiates. We attract and empower other people.

Life: We can start living, really living. We become present. We enjoy life here and now.

Here are a few tips for starting a meditation practice:

Daily practice: This is very important. A minimum of twenty minutes at the beginning is good. But if we have time the longer the better!

Discipline: Doing it at the same time every day can help with the discipline.

Will power: Not listening to all the excuses that our mind will try to bring forth to get out of the meditation. We should do it no matter what!

Right place: It is good to find a quiet place for our practice at home or outdoors and it is better to switch off all our mobile and wi-fi devices.

Persistence: Not giving up! Like everything in life, it can take time before we start experiencing results but as always when they come we are glad we persisted!

Basic technique: A good technique to start with is putting all our attention on our breath. Taking long and deep breath-in and breath-out and just watching it. Becoming conscious of the air entering our lungs before escaping again. And every time we notice ourselves caught in the stream of our random thoughts we just have to come back to watching the breath.

Enjoy!

Am I caught in the same pattern again?

IMG_3212

Often times we can find ourselves caught up in the same kind of situations in life.
Wether it be the same kind of unhealthy relationship, the same working environment where we feel disrespected or the “one more time” miracle diet that we pray will make us skinny once and for all.
Have we been here before in similar circumstances?
Why are we always attracting these situations?
And yet why not?
Are we doing anything different, have we looked at ourselves and made inside changes?
If not why are we expecting life to do it for us?
Life is giving us what we need to learn about ourselves.
If we are always attracting abusive relationships, what does that say about our self-esteem and self-respect? The day we decide we are deserving of much better and we truly believe it, is the day we will start looking for a partner that will respect us.
The day we will stand up for ourselves in front of an abusive boss because we know everyone is equal and deserve to be treated fairly, including us, is the day we will receive better treatment or we will quit our job for a better one.
The day we accept ourselves as an imperfect human being, the same as everyone else, knowing that we always do the best with what we have, is the day we will stop all the crazy yo-yo diets and start respecting ourselves and our bodies on a daily basis with a healthier lifestyle.
There are no miracle cures for life, there are no miracle tricks that will save us, but we own the power to change ourselves within us.
We are on own saviour.
We owe it to ourselves to take responsibility for our own lives and make the necessary changes that will support our spirit to thrive in this life.
We can all do it, there are no limitations, only the ones we put on ourselves.
And just like that, in an instant, in a moment we can break through these limitations and become free, just by choosing to be.

We are free, we are Spirit.
