… helps you to discover who you really are.

Finding yourself is a life-long journey and it starts with the search for clarity — “Who am I? What makes me happy? What’s my purpose? Why do people treat me the way they do?”

We all ask these questions but why ask them if we’re not willing to hear the answers and act upon them?

When you’re consciously walking through your life, you’re awake. You get it. You see it. You feel it. You don’t ignore it. You don’t push it aside and brush it under the rug. You listen to it, integrate it and transform because of it.

But when you’re sleepwalking your way through your life, you miss all the significance and you miss the simple synchronicities that are meant to transform you and the path you’re walking.

Pay attention to your life, it’s trying to tell you something. There’s a rhyme and reason for every situation and every person you encounter in life. And the more you understand that, the better your life gets. And the sooner you understand that, the faster the rewards come.

There’s a deeper meaning to your life if you’re willing to be conscious of it. The universe is always whispering the answers to you, you just have to become adept to hearing the responses and identifying the next step.

You’re never alone and you’re never without answers. The universe gives you several spiritual tools to help you to understand who you are and why your life is unfolding the way it is. Life is a process of uncovering yourself. Are you still hiding from yourself or are you ready to be found. Whenever you’re ready, the rest of your life is waiting to begin.

… a better plan is coming together for you.

It can be no other way.

Plans are the foundation on which we build our lives. If a plan you’ve worked hard on is falling apart, it obviously isn’t strong enough to support your growth. Don’t be upset that it fell apart before its vision was realized — be grateful that you now know you require a stronger foundation and build it accordingly.

Not every plan is meant to come into fruition. Some plans are more important for where they bring you to then whether or not they materialize.

Trust the process of your life — if something doesn’t come together for you, it’s because something better is just around the corner.

The best laid plans should fall apart if they are not able to support your dreams. Be flexible. If it crashes down, step back and recognize that there is something much better coming together. Know that it’s not a punishment, it’s a reward.

Life is funny like that.

… it’s right for you.

If it depletes you, it holds no value for you.

When making decisions you always want to follow your emotional guidance system. It tells you everything you need to know about WHAT’S RIGHT for you.

Passion is your purpose — it will always lead you to the right places. Don’t doubt the inspiration coming through you. It doesn’t have to make sense. You only have to trust it and move towards it.

When you move in the direction of things that make you happy/excited/inspired, you are open to the possibilities. When you resist your inspiration and ignore what feels exciting to you, you kill the impetus for change and keep yourself locked in a pattern of frustration and stagnation.

Not everything in life is meant to be difficult. Life is meant to be joyful. Why listen to the voices of despair when the voices of excitement are so much more encouraging.

Trust your intuition — if it excites you, it’s right for you. If it depletes you, it holds no value for you. It’s your life — you’re the only one who knows the difference.

… once you’re on it, you’re in for a ride.

And that ride is a tough one.

One negative thought begets another begets another, begets another. Once you set down the path of focusing on self-limiting beliefs, fears and anxieties, you spiral down the rabbit hole burying yourself under your own negative thought forms.

Trains have a tendency to pick up momentum as they barrel along the track. The negativity train is fueled by every fearful, depressing thought you’ve ever had and it gains speed and force along the way. Once that train is moving in a swift self-defeating direction, it’s almost impossible to stop the inevitable. 

To stop the negativity train, get out ahead of it. Stop those negative thoughts in their tracks before they gain momentum over you and learn to replace those thoughts with thoughts that are more constructive and more inspiring.

Your life is your own. Don’t let the runaway negativity train take you out. If you don’t stop the momentum before it builds, you’ll never know what hit you.

… doesn’t make things easier for you.

It makes them HARDER.

Things may not always go the way you intended them to go and that has to be ok. Sure it might be upsetting and sure you might have wished you’d done things differently, and sure you might’ve even tried another approach to fix things but unfortunately was unable. What do you do now?

You can’t change what’s done. Focusing on the disappointment of the past keeps you trapped there. Learning the lesson from that experience frees you to move on.

Learning what you will never do again is by far one of the most powerful lessons one can learn. Transformation is never easy. If it doesn’t hurt, it’ll probably never change you.

Being hard on yourself is never the answer. Transformation is hard work. If you beat yourself up over your learning process, you’ll just impede your growth. Mistakes make you better if you learn from them. Don’t waste your time lamenting those mistakes, use that time to apply the learning and make your future better because of it.

… doesn’t mean it has to become YOUR TRUTH.

Something may have happened to you and it may be part of your past/present, but that doesn’t mean it has to become part of your future — unless you make it so. 

It may very well be true, but it doesn’t mean that you have to feed it energy and give it control over your life. Nothing has control over your life, unless you give it. 

Again, it may be true, but if it doesn’t serve you — uplift you — mold you into a higher version of yourself — then take your attention off of it and put it into something that does. 

You get what you think about whether you want it or not. You don’t have to spend your energy re-living your troubled past or present — shut it down — and put that energy into rewriting your story.

Just because something may seem to be true, doesn’t mean it has to become your truth. You decide what’s true for you and what’s true for you will always become your reality and what isn’t… will simply fade away.

… is not a function of life.

It’s a function of LIVING.

It’s not about the number of physical years you’ve lived, but the quality of those years that determines how you age.

You are only as old as you feel and how you feel is a function of how you are currently living.

Our modern lifestyle has increased our chronological age (the age in years) — people live longer these days — but modern living has also increased our biological age (the age of our physical bodies) and those are NOT always the same age. 

Modern life includes many factors that speed up your biological age clock. Factors of aging increase cellular turnover and just a few of those modern factors include:

stress

sleep deprivation

chemicals found in processed foods + factory farming

coffee

nicotine

extensive alcohol + drug consumption

negative emotions (depression/anxiety/anger/hatred/bitterness/fear)

states of chronic pain

pharmaceuticals

sun exposure

radiation

Keeping yourself young is not only a physical process, but an emotional and mental one as well. We all know how to alleviate the above triggers of aging, but to stay young, follow these simple rules…

Learn how to be happy.

Learn how to cultivate a positive/optimistic mindset.

Learn how to transform negative emotions into positive ones.

Learn to sit in stillness + contemplation (meditation).

Learn to move negative (toxic) energy out of your body through yoga, acupuncture + reiki.

Learn to dispel negative energy (heavy metals/stress) in your environment through smudging (sage/palo santo/incense/himalayan salt lamps/crystals)

Learn to let the earth ground you — spend time in nature and harness the healing power of its bounty in the form of salt water, herbs, flower essences + aromatherapy oils.

Modern living, negative energy and negative emotions will age you faster then you ever thought possible. If you let the world around you dictate your state of mind and emotions, you’ll fall right into premature aging, but if you learn to cultivate a clean body, inner strength, emotional balance and a peaceful mind — you’ll remain youthful beyond your years. How old do you want to be?
