Fix it

Sometimes, there’s nothing to fix.

Sometimes, there’s nothing to fix.

In our broken state, we are complete.

Sometimes, we don’t need to change anything.

We can be sad and be complete.

We can be happy and be complete.

We can be alone and be complete.

We can be home and be complete.

Sometimes through the madness and complexities of life,

there’s nothing to change.

Even though the light of unfairness can be seen at times.

Even though we can fall back on pain, all is complete.

All is stillness, all is wholeness, all is oneness.

Sometimes there’s nothing to fix.

Sink, rest into your body and experience.

Experience sensation, emotion, heartache, bliss, confusion,

anxiety, hate, joy and peace– experience it all! Why?

Because you’re alive. All that’s required of you now is to simply experience, and feel.

Sometimes there’s nothing to fix.

And there’s everything to experience.

There is absolutely nothing you need to change.

What I’ve Learned this Year (so far)

Since January of this year (2019), I’ve moved across the country twice, started a new job, had amazing experiences teaching yoga, met amazing people, and I have learned a lot about myself.

From the beginning of this year, I’ve learned a lot about choices.

I get to deliberately choose the things I want in my life.

I choose where to live, who I interact with, and how I interact with other people.

I choose how I start my day, I choose what I want to do.

I learned that if I don’t choose what I want, then whatever happens, happens by default. I can’t complain about what happens in those times, because in a way I chose that too. I chose it by not choosing.

I learned that if I choose what other people want me to do, then that makes them happy.

If I choose what I want to do, then that makes me happy.

Even within the choices I have already made, I continue to choose either contentment, or dissatisfaction.

Remember Day One

Isn’t it interesting how when we get a new job, we are often enthusiastic about it and so excited to be there. After a few short months, we can feel dissatisfied and negative about it. The job most likely didn’t change very much in that time. It’s us and our experiences and thoughts that continually shape our perspective on everything.

It’s like this with relationships too. When you first get into a relationship, you feel enthusiastic and so in-love. As time passes, you begin to feel maybe not as excited as you once were about things. It seems more routine, or it has become ordinary.

I have learned that it is a continual choice how you feel about the relationship, or the job, or anything else in your life.

You can feel the same way you have felt on day-one, even if it’s months or years later.

I invite you to imagine the very first day of some experience, job, relationship, or even back to the beginning of this year.

What were you feeling, thinking, or believing in during that time?

Live in that moment. Breathe it, see it, feel it.

Is any of what you have experienced on day-one applicable now?

I believe it can be.

Generate those same thoughts, feelings and excitements as you felt when you were most excited about the experience, and I bet you can find some of the same elements in that situation now. Situations change all the time, see if you can find some new things to be excited about, as if it were day-one. Every day can feel like day-one.

Every day there’s something you can find excitement in.

And that’s what I’ve learned this year (so far).

You.

I’m afraid I won’t be able to have what I want for myself in the future.

I’m afraid I’ll have nowhere to go. Nowhere I can be myself.

My inner voice is telling me to find the bliss inside, all the love, the joy, the precious thoughts, the small moments, live them inside just for me.

They’ve always been just for me. Find the spark of desire within, and live within your own inner world.

Your outer world is a reflection of your inner world. Don’t give up your dream, don’t let doubt creep inside and tarnish your inner world. This world is your castle and your domain.

Let it breathe inside you. As you breathe within you will see it with-out, and it cannot leave you.

Whatever you invite in cannot leave you. You are abundant and precious to me. It’s all within your reach, let this inner confidence grow within you.

Show yourself how, you know the way, Your heart knows the way. You are precious.
Don’t let others opinions hold you back– you are powerful. I enjoy looking into your eyes and seeing endless possibilities within. Take chances, breathe in life and all the experiences they have to offer.

I love you.

We’ll Meet Again, Dreamer

Maybe we can’t always be with the ones we love. Maybe they are out of reach, or away often. Maybe you are apart from someone for a time.

You can always connect to your love through your heart, through your dreams.

Here is a music meditation to connect you to your inner dreamer.

On Giving Advice

This topic has been on my mind lately.

Giving advice, or receiving advice from others. Everyone seems to have an opinion on most, if not everything you do. I’m pretty sure all of us have received advice that was not wanted or needed before. I am also sure that we have all given advice or have tried to help someone, but in the end it was not really any help to them.

Generally, I like to think that people can handle life and all it brings on their own. They know where to find me if they need help, and my self- worth and self-value does not decrease if someone does not want advice from me. Those people that don’t need my help are just being themselves. Continue reading “On Giving Advice”

New Years Every Day

Most people at some point in their life have made a New Year’s Resolution. We have such high hopes to change with the New year. To become a better version of ourselves. Many of us use these Resolutions to spark that fire of change.

Then, many of us give up or forget our Resolutions by week three of January. Or maybe even sooner than that. I have personally made the choice to not make any New Year’s Resolutions this year. This is not because I am not committed to being the best version of me, but it’s because the idea of Resolutions is unrealistic for me. They may be unrealistic for you too, and if you feel overwhelmed or uninspired to make any New Years Resolutions, let me offer this instead:
