How I Got to Belize
I am sitting in my apartment in New York city right now. It snowed last night and there's a dusting of white on the ground. I am sitting here in awe, reverence and extreme appreciation. You see, last night I arrived back in New York City after an amazingly beautiful and inspirational week in Belize. I had the honor of co teaching an Angelic yoga retreat with two of my very good friends there. Of course I didn't teach the yoga... That would be funny! I taught the angelic part of the retreat. We had an amazing time. This trip exceeded all of our expectations. We were in the rain Forest of Belize for four days. We swam in the waterfalls. We hiked through some of the most beautiful land I've ever seen. We crossed the ocean to go to a very tiny beautiful island that had the most amazing accommodations and had adventures in the ocean. I got to swim in the second largest barrier reef in the world. I swam with sea turtles, saw sharks And even saw a mermaid under the water ( wel...l she is a tattoo on my leg. Haha)
I got to do all this and more with some of the most amazing women that I know. Some people I got to know on the trip while others I have known for a while. Each and every one of them is a blessing in my life. AND I got to do this while doing what I love: teach people that life is so much more then what they might be experiencing right now. In fact, a theme emerged from the retreat that seems so appropriate; "Anything and everything is possible."
This trip was an adventure. This trip was a dream. This trip was beautiful. This trip was inspirational. This trip has added to my life in more ways than I even know right now. Besides all that, doing all these things while I was making a living at the same time!
This was the kind of trip that many people hold in their thoughts very far away from them, thinking "I would love to do something like that, if I only had the money, if I only have the time, if I only… If I only… If I only…"
Is there a part of you that, as you read this is saying "if only…"? Well, I used to be just like you. I used to think or feel "if I only..." I also thought that such trips or having a life where you can do what you love and have adventure and even create more significant connections to yourself and others was something that was out of reach. It was something "other people" did. You know, those people that have a different life. Those people that have money. Those people that had a better education. Those people who…(Fill in the blank) Well, it's nice to meet you, I am now one of "those people ". I have crossed over to the... LIGHT side. And it's the most wonderful place to be. It is a place where I know at a cellular level that anything is possible! It is a place of acceptance, joy, adventure and love. Say "yes" if that place sounds good to you.
Well, all of this could just be a story about another person that was one of "those people" who finally achieved what they dreamed of. But, this story is about you and not me... This is a story about you and how you are writing your life with every thought and every action you take in your life.
I titled this "How I got to Belize" because really how I got to Belize was that I took responsibility and accepted that I am the creator of my life. I finally, after many years of study and practice decided in the last year that it was time... It was time to be more consistent with my thoughts. It was time to be more consistent with my actions. It was time to know and allow the true goodness of life to flow through me and not only through "other people". I truly decided that "anything and everything was possible".
By doing this my vibration changed. By doing this my vibration raised. By doing this the universe matched my vibration. I literally have trained myself to let go of anything that felt bad in my vibration. Now that I am truly consistent with doing this, the results are showing up in my life in so many ways that it's almost impossible to write them all down.
As they say, "Everything is an inner journey." And it is more true than you might know right now. But I stand in your consciousness as you read this, as I shining example of how the inner journey will change your outer results.
You can get to Belize or anywhere that you decide you want to go. If you're willing to do the work and walk the walk of a mystical traveler through your life. When I say "work", I want you to know that the "work" doesn't have to be hard. It just has to be consistent. If you can change your mind about that, that is one of the first steps. Be consistent in always turning towards what you DO want and letting go of what you DON'T want. Over and over and over and over and over again. Every time that you change your mind towards something that you DO, want, you create a new vibration and that is literally "How you get to Belize".
As usual, I'm sending you all my love and preparing for a future post that will be entitled "How I got to Bali" ;)
One of my favorite quotes and I think one of the most effective principles in getting positive results in your life is this: "It is in our defenselessness that your safety lies" That is from A Course in Miracles.
The concept of defenselessness is something that is foreign to many people. It is foreign because we have been trained by the world and by the ego to always defend. Defend ourselves. Defend family. Defend our opinion. Defend our country. Defend our friends. Defend. Defend. Defend...
If you truly want to have peace in your life and to attract positive results in any area, you have to be willing to give up the defense. What defending does is to literally create more of what you're defending against.
Think about the greatest sages and enlightened beings that have walked this earth. When have you ever heard of them defending? And, if they have defended, if you look very closely at the situation, it is more like they are stating the truth instead of defending. They know what most of us need to learn.
Take one of the most classic examples of this in our Western world; the persecution of Jesus. Was there any moment in that story when Jesus tried to defend himself? It would've been a whole other story if Jesus would have tried to defend his position or argued with his detractors trying to free himself. Can you imagine Jesus getting anger and saying "You are wrong! I am right!!!"? It's almost comical. You see in that story Jesus didn't need to be right he needed to stand in his peace. It was is in his defenselessness that his safety laid. This is not to say that his body was not safe. But the essential HIM which is not the body, was completely safe and had nothing to defend against, because the essential HIM will never die.
You are just like that. The essential YOU will never die. All the great teachings have already told you that you have all that the enlightened masters have, you just haven't realize your potential...yet.
So, one of the things in attracting positive results in your life is to be keenly aware about when you're defending against something and when you were just stating the truth. Stating the truth or defending against is an energetic frequency, a feeling or a vibration that is within you. You could be saying the exact same words but on one level your defending and on the other level you're just stating a truth. And you know what they say about the truth don't you? "The truth shall set you ______. " Do you want to be free?
This takes practice for some of you, but I am sure that you can do it. After all the truth is all you are. There is no need to defend the truth is there? I guarantee you that implementing this will help you to attract more positive results in your life because you're underlying vibration will become one of peace and flow instead of one of pushing and defending.
So the next time that a situation comes up where you feel the need to defend, take a deep breath before anything flies out of your mouth. In that breath, STOP and ask yourself if what you're about to say is defending, which will create more of what you're defending against, or is what you're about to say the simple truth? Then either state your truth with love and peace or keep your mouth shut! By keeping your mouth shut it will literally stop the crazy cycle of attack/defend. When that cycle is broken, the vibration changes and when the vibration changes, your results change.
Here is to stating the TRUTH and to defenselessness!
3 Steps to Expand YOU!
To have a different experience of the life you have you must have a different experience of who you are...
Think about this for just a minute: how many people including yourself, do you know in your life that is in a place where they are not happy? They're not happy with their relationships. They're not happy with their careers. They're not happy with their health. They are not happy with their wealth or lack of it. Any of the above circumstances. Many of these people, maybe even you, talk about how they want to change these areas of their lives. They talk about how where they are is not where they want to be. They talk about how if they could only get out of their current situation they then would be happy and be living the life they think they are meant to be living.
This is the perfect place to start in our lives to begin the incredible miraculous and even magical process of change and manifestation. This is the beginning of the beginning. This is when you look at what you don't want so you know what you do want.
If this need for change is great enough, then people will start to take certain actions and start to change their mind about their current circumstances so they can reach the circumstances that they dream of. They will read books. They will search out a coach or a trainer. They will begin the process of manifesting that new change in their life.
Of course I've seen this many times with many people over and over in my work. People that are ready for the change. People that want all of these things and yet what I have found is that many people are not willing to have a different experience of themselves.
What I mean by this is that in order for us to have a different experience of our life and our circumstances, we need to have a different experience of ourselves first. This is crucial in the manifestation process.
Think about this: there is a young mail clerk in a big corporation. He wants to be the head of the corporation. He wants to earn the money. He wants to have the life. He wants to have the influence. He knows this and keeps working as himself hoping and wishing that someday he will make it to the top. He keeps wishing day in and day out that this would happen, yet he still believes that he is the mailroom clerk in the bottom office. He still sees himself as the mailroom clerk in the bottom office. He still feels himself as the mailroom clerk in the bottom office. And eventually guess what happens? For many of the mailroom clerks of the world they might rise one or two levels, but they never get the top. They get to the end of their life and think "I wish I could have gotten there..."
The reason that the mailroom clerks of the world so rarely make it to the top, is because they are looking at everything from the perspective of the mailroom clerk. They are acting from the perspective of the mailroom clerk. They are thinking from the perspective of the mailroom clerk. They are doing from the perspective of the mailroom clerk. You get my point. What they haven't done is to have a different experience of themselves other then the mailroom clerk. They haven't activated their imagination. They haven't spent time energy and focus seeing , believing and knowing that there is a small part of them within themselves that has all the goals and desires that they dream of.
You see, in order to have a different experience, you have to experience your self differently. As soon as we experience ourselves differently everything in the universe is set up to start to bring those kinds of experiences, opportunities and goals into your vibration. I can guarantee you, if you are not spending time seeing yourself as that person who has the things and the experiences of life that you now only dream of, the likelihood of it manifesting in your life is slim to none. On the other hand, if you do spend time doing that, everything will move much faster for you.
I can hear your next question right now. How do we do that? Well, start with these 3 steps...
1. Know and take stock at the deepest level of who you are, that you are creating everything in your life. This comes back to basic universal principle. Everything you're experiencing in your life is because you are living it internally on a vibrational level. Your outer life is a reflection of your inner life.
Realize that what you are experiencing right now is what you you have created from the past. The you you are experiencing right now is your projection of your past ideas of who you thought you were. This can be tough if you are in a place that doesn't feel good in some area of your life. But, it is vital that you accept this truth. There is something within you vibrationally that has created who you are right now.
2. Change your concept of yourself. What I mean by that is start to look at what you believe about yourself that is not serving you. Look at what you are telling yourself about your life and about life in general that is not serving you to live a life of wonder, success and love. As you start to do this, you will begin to realize that the part of you that you're experiencing right now as your self, is very small. The possibilities of who you can become are far greater then the small ideas of what you are right now.
3. Be open and willing to change. Be open to the thought that your beliefs of who you are are the springboard to who you want to be. Take the magical leap off that springboard into who you want to be or what circumstance you want to create in your life. Literally feel it. Literally see it. Do this on a daily basis, and you will begin to change your concept of who you are.
When you do or accept these 3 things, your concept of who you are will start to match who you want to be and/or what you want to experience.
Know that your imagination is one of the most powerful tools that you could ever have in your life. Honor your imagination. Treasure your imagination. Use your imagination to serve yourself and serve the world in a much more effective, purposeful and creative way.
Remember everything starts with you. When you change your idea about yourself and consistently focus on who you want to be instead of your current circumstances, everything will fall in line. I know you can do it!
What Are You Thinking NOW?
What you are experiencing in your life right now is a reflection of the thoughts that you had previously two now.
This is the basis of creation. This is the basis of making your life in line with the divine flow. As we really gets the fact that we are co-creating with the universe at all times, we understand and more importantly, activate this divine law.
If what you are experiencing in the moment is something that you do not want, it is just a reflection that you had a vibration that is manifesting itself in the present moment. If it is any area of our lives including financial, relationships, career or your overall experience of your life you had to have a matching vibration to get that result in the present moment. I realize that this can be a daunting and tough lesson to get, but when you do it is your ticket to freedom. In fact, it is not just your ticket to freedom but your ticket to peace, joy, love and creation.
It is through much trial and error that eventually we all get to understand and see the power of this concept. It is up to you to embrace this concept now and start to be a true cocreator with the divine flow so that you can escape your suffering forever. As the Buddha says, "suffering comes from life not being what you wanted to be." On the deepest metaphysical level we are suffering because we're sending out a vibration of what we think we wanted to be. Now, this is not to say that we want tragedy or financial struggle or anything that feels in conflict. What it is saying is that allow life to be what it is and then make a new decision to create something that you do want and that feels fantastic!
One of the first ways to do this is to take responsibility that everything in your life is somehow reflecting your vibration. It is then that you can respond in a different way. It is then that you can say "In this moment, I choose joy" This is a consistent practice. It is not a magical solution. But it contains with in it the most powerful tool that we have our ability to choose beyond the insanity of the ego.
The next thing to do, is to ask yourself what it is that I am thinking about and what it is I am focusing on? If there is something you are focusing on that is worrying you or upsetting you, then change your focus. Change what you were looking at. Change your mind and your results will change also. The more you do this on a consistent basis, the more the results will show more piece, more joy, more love and results that feel fantastic!
So, what are you thinking NOW?
