[:en]Yoga is an ancient practice of physical exercises that promotes overall well-being. There are many definitions of yoga. The word “yoga” comes from a Sanskrit root which means “to join.” Indeed, continuous practice of yoga promotes integration of movement and breath, increases strength and flexibility, and improves the quality of focus and attention, among other documented benefits. Long-time yoga practitioners tend experience increased sense of peace, well-being, mental clarity, and overall harmony with the environment. [:]
[:en]The nature of Life is infinite abundance, ultimate fulfillment, and constant state of expanding and joy. We are a part of Life, so we share the same inherent qualities. But do we really know that about ourselves? When we try to play small, we are denying who we are and redefining our God-given nature. Of course, this cannot feel good. Given that our mind is extremely powerful, lack and limitation becomes our reality through belief. Even though we can never change who we are in truth, we can convince ourselves that we are limited, small, or inadequate.
A Course in Miracles contains profound teachings on how to shift our mindset from believing in lack to believing in abundance. It teaches that “only belief in separation gives us the experience of lack.”[:]
[:en]A clear goal invites spontaneous action that is directed towards a specific area of focus. It saves our time and energy, and allows us to stay in our power. In this post, I reviewed the best goal-setting practices according to science. Do you use them for yourself?[:]
[:en]We all know that the holiday season can get very busy and stressful with all the parties, Christmas shopping, and traveling. We have long lists of to-do items, shopping lists, lists for mailing all those presents or postcards, and so on. In addition, we reflect on the last year and set goals for 2017. It is important to remember to take care of yourself in the middle of all this activity.
I hope the ideas I’m sharing below will serve as an inspiration for you to find your own unique way to relax and recharge your batteries. Here is what helped me to shift into my attitude from worrying about getting things done to enjoying each moment while still doing what has to be done.
[:en]Wouldn’t it be nice to be in the state of full acceptance and peace inside, regardless of what happens outside? Is it even possible? This is the state of zero, the state of presence that is full of potential for transformation. In numerology, zero represents the highest degree of acceptance that opens the door to power, fullness, and strength. The strength and power comes from the awareness that you are who you are, regardless of what other people think, say, or do. When we are in this state, we are open to receive insights from our inner wisdom. This state of calm presence transforms our environment, our life, and our world.[:]
[:en]Our understanding of life purpose changes and evolves over time, as we mature and gain new experience. However, everyone begins to wonder sooner or later how to find his or her life purpose. As always, the answer is usually very simple. We are happy when we are doing exactly what we came here to do, and unhappy when we are trying to do someone else’s job. The degree of unhappiness intensifies the longer the person insists on staying away from his or her life purpose.
Even though deep inside we know what we need to be doing, we often ignore or doubt these hints of intuition. The further we are from the path that leads to the fulfillment of our life purpose, the more it feels like we are living someone else’s life. In a way, that’s exactly what we are trying to do! Following an iterative process of trial and error, we are finally drawn to discover our life purpose.[:]
[:en]“Enlightenment means taking full responsibility for your life.” ~ William Blake
As a spiritual life coach and numerologist, I see that many people struggle with understanding and developing the skill of responsibility. I have made the same mistake early on my spiritual path. In our culture, the true meaning of responsibility is often obscured.
What Is Responsibility?
If you have a number 8 in your birth date, there is a good chance that you are already familiar with the energy of bringing the spiritual and material worlds together inside of you. If you don’t have an 8 in your birth date, it might indicate that you are working on integrating the quality of responsibility in this lifetime. It’s not an easy task, but it can strengthen your potential for growth and fulfillment.
In other words, 8 is the number of power and mastery in material expression that comes from knowing who you are spiritually.[:]
[:en]Last week, I had a very profound phone conversation with my sister. We talked about the importance of finding balance between action and reflection, learning and doing, theory and practice. It is crucial to reinforce everything you’re learning by putting it into practical action steps. In the community of spiritual seekers and personal development enthusiasts, it is commonly thought that you need to put all your efforts into changing your mindset and establishing new thinking patterns. Then, the actions that are right for you are supposed to flow naturally and effortlessly from there. That’s true only under certain conditions. In practice, the last step often doesn’t actually follow.[:]
[:en]Are some people born strong and others weak? Can we develop inner strength? After pondering on these questions, I’m convinced that everyone is inherently strong, although not everyone can see their strength. We become what we believe ourselves to be. So when you believe you are weak, consciously or unconsciously, you begin to display the characteristics of weakness and look for the proof it is so in your life.
The good news is that inner strength can be reclaimed and restored in anyone, even if weakness and adversity is all that a person can see at the moment. Your mind is very powerful, and it always reinforces in you the values and qualities that you consistently put your attention on. Below are six main characteristics of a strong person. [:]
[:en]Last Saturday, I have attended “Playing the Matrix” workshop with Mike Dooley. I thoroughly enjoyed this concise and practical step-by-step guide to how to make your dreams a reality. Mike is and author, speaker, and writer of inspirational Notes from the Universe that are sent out daily to hundreds of thousands of his email subscribers. The workshop was held in a beautiful Omni Grove Park Inn hotel in Asheville, North Carolina. If you haven’t visited this beautiful resort, it is quite an experience! If you feel inspired to attend one of Mike Dooley’s events, you can check Mike’s calendar here. Give yourself a gift of concentrated wisdom, humor, and connection!
It was beyond amazing to spend the day in a company of like-minded people and to hear about Mike’s genuine experience of finding his life purpose. Everything that he has shared with us in the workshop resonated with me deeply. Sometimes it really helps to hear someone, who is several steps ahead of you, confirming that what you are doing now is going to take you exactly where you want to go. I felt I have received my confirmations directly from the Universe through Mike, the writer for the Universe. How cool and symbolic is that?!
I am going to share the main lessons that stood out for me during the day. If you are on your way of making your dreams a reality, they might resonate with you too. There is much more that happened that day. There were serendipitous meetings, mountain views, synchronicities, and receiving a personal message from the Universe.[:]
