[: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] Between February 10th and February 26th, we were in the period between the two eclipses. That means that karmic events and serendipitous meetings surround us. The eclipses are charged with a massive amount of cosmic energy. We can direct this potent energy to bring about changes in our lives, release the old toxic patterns of thinking, and welcome the new Age of Aquarius. During this eclipse season, we are … Continue reading [:en]Step Into Power: Solar Eclipse Activates the Age of Aquarius[:]
[:en]Solar and lunar eclipses are vibrational activation points that help us grow and accelerate our evolution. They are very important in terms of astrological interpretation, because they signify shifts in our inner and outer life. Eclipses emphasize certain areas of life and bring fated events, significant meetings, and powerful insights. They are powerful portals that open the doors for us for realizing our life purpose.
Eclipses are charged with cosmic energy that can be used to change time and space and create the life we want. If we skillfully and consciously use this energy, we can manifest our hearts’ desires faster. However, if you don’t realize how these cycles work and what their purpose is, we can see them as chaotic and unpredictable events.[:]
[: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]Commitment is severely underrated in our modern society. As a result, the Holy Grail of a wholehearted decision to fully commit to reaching one’s highest potential at all levels is overlooked. Often, we wait for things to work out in our lives without really investing the energy into our own success and well-being. To commit means to believe in yourself and to pursue wholeheartedly what you think is good for you. It is not a “maybe”, but a definite “yes”.
Commitment literally opens the doors and brings clarity and joy into one’s life. There is no more questions that need to be answered, no doubts, and no more convincing left to do. The road ahead is clear, and there are no more obstacles that block the light. At that point, the only option that is available to you is to share that light with the rest of the world. The way you can contribute to the world is maximized.[:]
