I swear ~ Rumi

Heart shaped moon reflected in oceanLet go of your worries

and be completely clear-hearted,

like the face of a mirror

that contains no images.

If you want a clear mirror,

behold yourself

and see the shameless truth,

which the mirror reflects.

If metal can be polished

to a mirror-like finish,

what polishing might the mirror

of the heart require?

Between the mirror and the heart

is this single difference:

the heart conceals secrets,

while the mirror does not.

Meditation = Happier Wealth

originally posted http://www.strategystream.com ~ by Ruby RenshawWater ying yang

Recently, I asked a successful finance director, who has been incorporating meditation into his business life for several years now, his own experience of the benefits of committing to a meditative practice.

Along with some expected benefits:

-Being un-rattled by issues arising when things seem to be going wrong.

-Ability to be present, to observe, not to engage in negative emotion, not because I am suppressing it – but genuinely because I do not need to go there anymore.

He also offered up the most yummy, juicy benefit:

I am happier! … AND what is a surprise – now becoming wealthier! …. Meditation energy is the type of energy that lets the stuff you no longer want go and allows in the new good stuff ….

I had to drop my old ways of doing business which worked financially, but were not based around happiness. So I had to drop some old ways of thinking – including with it ways that made money – without knowing how I was going to make a new way work financially. When you realize you want to do that, that’s a ‘Gulp’ moment! 

But when you have your own heart on your side, well that’s alignment, and things you cannot foretell start to engage, to happen and you get there.

Beautiful.

By improving your inner landscape, meditation helps you to respond to external events with more awareness and clarity, and hence, change the business and HAPPINESS results that you deliver over time.

Stretch at Your Desk

There is a stream of business, when everything is developing and prospering naturally. Occasionally you may come up against rocks and obstacles you need to divert around, but there’s no reason for flow to stop or for you to be so stressed out you are not taking care of yourself!

If we allow the anxiety and pressure of being an entrepreneur to take hold of our minds and our bodies, it will affect our well-being, efficiency, and ultimately our attitude about our business.

When we are strong enough to take hold of these anxieties, the results are immeasurable. Staying attuned to our core-highest-stress-free-self results in sustainable and fulfilling business results!

One way of saying “no” to stress, is taking a few minutes out of each workday to stretch at your desk or wherever you may be working. When you stop and stretch, doing so will improve your circulation and the amount of oxygen to your brain; thus your attitude, creativity, thoughts, intention and concentration are more under your conscious control.

It is a given when you begin to focus on your business, the stream will expand in all kinds of ways – new clients, new ideas, flowing money – and of course, more things “to-do”.

By incorporating pausing & stretching into your routine, you are taking control of the stress side of things .

Pro-actively keeping the banks of your stream (your mind, body, spirit, as well as your strategic intention) strong will help you to gracefully manage and allow the inevitable grace of expanded abundance and gifts coming your way.

Heart-Centered Meditation

Follow your heart, but be quiet for a while first. Ask questions,         then feel the answer. Learn to trust your heart.                              ~ Author Unknown

Operating in a survival state-of-mind in which the ego is in control of our thoughts and emotions when external events rock us is not uncommon.

This state-of-mind is characterized by negative self-talk and unhelpful thinking patterns. It can lead us to feel disempowered, hopeless and pessimistic about the future.

If this is a feeling you recognize, take note; there is a solution.  To help you infiltrate ego-hold with peaceful more heart-centered thoughts, try incorporating a meditative practice into your day.

By taking a moment to pause and reflect on your highest-self and giving yourself the opportunity to remember who you are and who you want to be, you will conquer the negative self-talk and retain a positive, peaceful and heart-centered outlook.

Allow the meditative process to tap into your subconscious– there you will find clarity and a sense of peace.

Peaceful-Heart-Centered Meditation

A peaceful-heart-centered meditation begins by finding a place where you can sit quietly, without outside disturbances.  Close your eyes and take several deep breaths.  As you begin to feel settled, bring your attention to the area of your physical heart.

With each breath you take, see your heart slowly expanding.  Allow your heart to continue to expand.  If you feel that your mind is trailing off – note the pattern.  Are you thinking of unpaid bills or a to-do list that seems never ending?  Bring yourself back to heart-center, and refocus on your breathing.  Take a few minutes – or longer – to rest in this nourishing energy.  Now, slowly open your eyes, sit quietly.

Integrate this awakening into your being. You should feel awakened to specific details related to your mission, and you should feel a sense of peace and calmness, rather than feeling stress and anxiety. You can work with increased focus, clarity and awareness, increased productivity and an increase in self-worth and self-confidence.

By taking the time to listen to the wisdom of your highest, heart-centered self during meditation and throughout the day, you allow this wisdom to guide you into a higher expression; where the ego does not have a booming voice.
