When you feel a peaceful joy

images-6You know what it feels like to be “in the flow” –-those times when your words and actions seem supported by creation –when for example, a specific person was needed, they would show up; when a certain set of circumstances was necessary for a project to go on, the pieces seemed to magically fall into place. It could be said that in those moments, your Highest Self was joyfully guiding your actions.

You have also probably experienced what it feels like when you are not in the flow, when you have wandered off your path and joy seems replaced by struggle. In those times, things do not move easily; the “wick won’t light”.

What can bring you back to your path is consciously tuning in —repeatedly reawakening to peace and your Higher Self. In the space of joyful awakening there is access to deep knowledge of what to create, speak, release, and leverage in the moment and for the future of your business.

When you feel a peaceful joy, you’re near the truth.

Unquiet and off center, jealous or greedy, what you do seems pretentious and those around you insincere.

Speak the clearest truth you know, and let the dis-ease heal.

If words are tinged with lying, they’re like water dripping into an oil lamp.

The wick won’t light, and the pleasure and rest of your love room will diminish. ~Rumi

Look for the mysterious….

Look for the mysteriouimages-3s in life. Wherever you look – in the white clouds, in the stars in the night, in the flowers, in a flowing river – wherever you look, look for the mystery. And whenever you find that a mystery is there, meditate on it. Meditation means: dissolve yourself before that mystery, annihilate yourself before that mystery, disperse yourself before that mystery. Be no more, and let the mystery be so total that you are absorbed in it. And suddenly a new door opens, a new perception is achieved ~Osho

When you are attempting to implement, tweak, or develop a growth plan for your business, the first step should always be checking into the mysterious. Checking into the mysterious means looking beyond your first impressions, viewing your business holographically and moving beyond the boundaries of making “typical” business decisions. In this way you access and integrate new perceptions into action and suddenly …all flows.

4 ways to reduce stress

6Meditative Management Consulting

Radical Emergence

I loved this post shared by Petra Umann petraeamu@gmail.com, September 2014. Petra covers the bases of what happens to us when we are stressed. She includes meditation and breath (and we know kundalini yoga includes both!) as 2 of the top 4 ways to reduce stress levels…

When we look around in the world today, everyone seems to be experiencing ever more escalating amounts of stress on a daily basis–from disgruntled airline passengers fighting over a few inches of legroom and reclining seat issues, to emotionally draining exclamations of impending doom by the media, to the egregious stress of war and fighting. Whether we are consciously aware of it or try to downplay the amount of stress we experience, stress is a seemingly normal part of life.

In addition, we all know that we live in a visual world. This is a powerful realization that advertisers, news outlets and individuals of media-driven markets have long ago internalized. On a purely physical level, we are drawn to messages and imagery that trigger an adrenaline boost; e.g. fear- and panic-inducing key words and visuals that prompt us to react with a “fight-or-flight” response, which is a form of highly “effective” stress.

When we are stressed or afraid, the hypothalamus is activated and sends signals to the adrenal glands via the sympathetic nervous system to flood the body with adrenaline, cortisol and DHEA. These hormones, in turn, cause the heartbeat to quicken, respiration increases, pupils dilate and every muscle slightly contracts. In short, the body produces extra energy to deal with whatever potential challenge we might be facing.

This “fight or flight” response is a psychogenetic, historic imprint that conjures the energy necessary to either “fight” or “flee”. If you were suddenly being attacked by a a large animal, you would have felt a surge of excitement to either fight harder than you’ve ever fought before or to run faster than you had ever run before. In today’s world, if a large truck came speeding towards you, you would have the same response. This energy of “excitement” can create “hysterical strength” in cases of extreme duress, e.g. I’m sure you’ve all heard of the seemingly impossible feats of a woman lifting a car to free her entrapped child or the, at times, superhuman accomplishments of professional athletes. These examples are a testament to what the human body is capable of under the influence of adrenaline and when the extra energy that stress/fear creates is being used.

This goes to show that our bodies are actually quite well equipped in dealing with “regular” stress. Once our bodies have adapted to or have dealt with the unusual or threatening circumstances that triggered the adrenaline production, the body calms down again and the adrenaline is being metabolized.

Problems often arise from many of the chronic mental stressors that we are exposed to. E.g. worrying about financial issues and uncertainty, being afraid of losing one’s job, family issues pulling us in a million different directions, etc. The problem with this form of mental stress is that there is no obvious course of action available (like running away or fighting the tiger that’s attacking you), thus the extra energy that the body created to “fight or flight” becomes stagnant and causes contraction, while leaving the adrenal glands in a continuous cycle of over production. This chronic “jolt” very quickly becomes a poison causing a myriad of physical problems ranging from high blood pressure, headaches, weight gain, insomnia, depression, addiction issues, autoimmune diseases and allergies, among other issues.

Fortunately there are quite a few, very effective ways to not only manage but also reduce stress levels.

1. Meditation – “Exercising your inner muscles”

Sending color to your adrenal glands

Sit comfortably. Close your eyes and take a deep breath into your body. Imagine drawing white light from the cosmos down through the top of your head and let it fill your body. Then, begin to radiate the white light out through your solar plexus, out through the ceiling and into the sky. Keep radiating this white light, noticing how it creates a “blank/clean slate” in your body and how it expands the auric field while activating all of your senses.

Now, rub your hands together to create heat and energy. When you feel a buzzing or palpable energy in your hands, place them on your lower back (above the pelvic bone), more specifically, on your kidneys and adrenal glands (your adrenal glands are situated on top of the kidneys). Feel how the warmth of your hands nourishes and replenishes your kidneys and adrenals.

Bring your consciousness into your adrenal glands, now. As you tune into your adrenal glands, ask them what color they need to be balanced and to function perfectly. (If you are stressed, you can specifically ask your adrenal glands what color they need to produce the perfect amount of adrenaline/cortisol to deal with the given situation.) Take the first color that comes to mind and imagine that you draw that frequency from the cosmos directly into your adrenal glands. Keep filling your adrenals with that color until they feel balanced to you.

Bonus: In a stressful situation, imagine/envision a solution.
If you are stressed about financial worries, imagine having all the money you need.
Health related issues: visualize healing or a healthy body. Conflicts/arguments: concentrate on a peaceful solution.
Relationships: focus on something you love/appreciate about that person/the people you are having problems with.

When ever you feel ready, take another deep breath and open your eyes again.

2. Breathing and Being Present

Deep breathing counteracts the effects of stress by lowering blood pressure and slowing down the heart rate. Try this:

Sit comfortably, close your eyes and begin to breathe deeply into your body. On each inhale, count to 3 or 5 (depending on lung capacity and what you feel most comfortable with), hold your breath for 3 to 5 counts and then exhale using that same 3-5 count pattern. Continue for a few minutes until you feel a sense of calm and nourishment.

You have to be present when you focus on your breath, as your breath draws your attention inward. When you feel the space that you’ve created for yourself in this present moment, take a moment to perceive your surroundings; e.g. notice how the air feels on your skin, if you are outside, or enjoy the texture and taste of each bite of food. The applications are really limitless. You’ll be surprised by how many things you don’t notice on a daily basis because you are too stressed or busy to pay attention to them.

3. Exercise

Physical exercise is a wonderful way to release and utilize all of those stuck energies created through fear or stress. When you work out or participate in a Yoga class, the physicality of the tasks at hand demand your presence. When you use the energy of fear and stress, it will ultimately liberate you. Exercise also has the added benefit of releasing endorphins into the brain, which improves your mood.

4. Sleep and B Vitamins

Sleep is probably the most important stress reducer. So when you are stressed, do whatever works for you to get a good night’s sleep.
B Vitamins are typically found in eggs, dairy products, beans, peas, nuts, liver and in the bran of cereal grains and help induce relaxation, support the brain and nervous system as well as help fight fatigue.

Of course, eating healthy, limiting cell phone and internet use, getting a massage or acupuncture treatment, or using essential oils are all great stress-reducing factors as well.

Choose any of the above methods when you feel stressed. Especially sending light to your adrenal glands can be used as an effective precaution and a way to set the tone for a peaceful day.

Keep the Financial Fires Blazing

images

Blazing passion is real power. It is the ying (feminine) and the yang (masculine) coming together. Passion can create anything you want and inspire you to accomplish the impossible.

Passion will move mountains and bring business success.

Passion is the energy blend of containment (ying) and force (yang) that results in a fire-building cosmic dance of creation.

Passion is the on-going implementation of your business (the container for your desire) from a space of still mind, penetrated with the force of conscious action.
Un-stilled mind will always think in terms of purpose, profit, and utility. Mind acting without pause will be aggressive and full of activity.

When mind is stilled thru meditation, activity will disappear and action will appear –and there is a great difference between the two. Activity has utility; conscious action becomes pure joy, pure beauty. You act not because something has to be achieved; you act because action is a joy, a dance. You act because you are so full of energy.

And all your joyful dancing cannot but result in a blazing fire of fulfilling abundance.

Follow your heart

Rose quartz heart

                                                                   ….don’t waste (your time) living someone

else’s life.

Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking.

Don’t let the noise of other’s opinion drown your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become.

Everything else is secondary

3. Have Gratitude
“Wear gratitude like a cloak and it will feed every corner of your life.”
4. Take Action

5. Have Faith
“As you start to walk out on the way, the way appears.”
6. Embrace Setbacks
“If you are irritated by every rub, how will you be polished?”
