Quick Technique to Improve Self-Esteem

I believe many of us spiritual seekers are prone to low self-esteem -- after all, we are generally sensitive souls going through life with unconventional beliefs, feeling different, never seeming to fit in, with the mainstream often writing us off as flaky, weird or woo-woo.

On top of that, as many of us are highly empathic, we're constantly picking up thoughts, energies and emotions from all around us; therefore it can be hard to know what's ours and what's someone else's, giving way to confusion and self-doubt.

I recently heard Sonia Choquette sharing this simple technique to feel good about yourself - I really love it so wanted to pass it on to you :-)

Throughout the day, simply say:

"My spirit is beautiful"

Additionally, remind yourself throughout the day what you love about your spirit, such as "I love my spirit's sense of humor", "I love that my spirit perceives beauty where others don't", "I love that my spirit is kind", etc etc.

The mind always wants to nit-pick, criticize, and ruminate over everything you did "wrong", but putting the focus on your beautiful spirit takes you back to the truth: you are a shining star, a beautiful bright light in an often-times dark world.

As Sonia says "Your mind will catch up eventually, but your spirit is beautiful!"

Believe it!!!! :-)

How to Open Your Third Eye

The third eye or Ajna chakra, located in the center of the head, is responsible for psychic abilities and heightened awareness.

There are many, many ways to open your Third Eye, but here are 5 techniques I've found to be very effective. Good luck!


1. Decalicify Your Pineal Gland

In order to activate your Third Eye, you absolutely MUST take steps to decalcify your pineal gland. Even if you only do this one thing, your Third Eye will start to open.

The pineal gland is located in the center of the head and is responsible for awareness and psychic abilities. Ages ago it was large and soft; however in our present day & age it’s about the size of a pea and calcified due to fluoride, processed & GMO food, environmental toxins, etc etc (hence so many “sheeple”)

Many experts say our pineal glands are calcified by the age of 17, so adults must do everything we can to restore it to its natural state for more heightened awareness.

Fortunately, there are simple steps you can take, and here some excellent links & videos:

2. Meditate

Regular meditation will undoubtedly help open your Third Eye, as it allows for other senses and higher awareness to come into play.

There are many ways to meditate, but you can start by simply sitting in a chair with your back straight but relaxed. If you prefer, you can dim the lights and/or listen to soft music - just make sure you won't be disturbed for awhile.

Focus on your feet and set the intention to remain grounded. Take some deep, slow breaths from the diaphragm and with each exhale, set the intention to relax your body more & more, and to just let go. Be sure to relax all the tiny muscles in your head - especially around your eyes and ears. If thoughts come, just let them go. (I visualize particles settling at the bottom of a glass of water, and the water becoming crystal clear.)

After several breaths, besides relaxed, you should feel a wonderful sense of expansion and release.

Whenever you're ready, focus on the center of your head; visualize a beautiful white light there and set the intention that your Third Eye now open, harmoniously and comfortably.

Whatever happens (or doesn't happen), remain detached and don't judge anything - just trust that with each meditation, you are becoming more aware and progressing on your spiritual journey.

Stay like this for as long as you want. You should feel great afterwards :-)

You can so try the guided meditation at #5 below - it's wonderful!!!


3. Mudras

This article shows the mudras (hand positions) to open all the chakras; scroll down for the Third Eye mudra. You should feel a nice buzzing around your Third Eye area as you hold this mudra and chant "Om" or "Ah":

4. Sounds

According to this source, specific sounds will activate your Third Eye:

5. Crystals

Crystals amplify energy, so if you place one on your Third Eye chakra it helps to helps to open & activate it. Once I laid down with a large quartz crystal on my forehead and after about 15 minutes of meditation, vivid scenes played out in my mind's eye - I believe these were from a past life since I recognized some faces as people I know in this life. Wild!

Even better, crystals can be programmed - so you can imbue a crystal with the energy & intention of opening your Third Eye, becoming more telepathic, seeing angels, etc etc

Here is a excellent link on using crystals to open your Third Eye:

5. Meditation For Activating the Third Eye and Pineal Gland - with Archangel Michael

image


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqbaMetiFbg

This is a wonderful meditation & activation! Do it now, then again in 3 months to bring your awareness to the next level. According to Telos, Archangel Michael and Asara (the channeler):

"It is a powerful guided meditation to strengthen not only our perception of the unseen world, it also enables us to envision our experience of Heaven on Earth. 

Also, this meditation will activate our pineal gland to the next level.

The function of our pineal gland in our spiritual evolution is very important, as it assists with the entire re-wiring of our DNA into an ascended state.

It is directly connected with our Third Eye Chakra, to bridge our physical with the non-physical world."

In Celebration of Introverts

I personally believe most of us who are into spirituality and metaphysics are on the introverted side -- we're typically sensitive souls who enjoy peace, quiet, solitude, deep conversation and pondering the mysteries of life.



Unfortunately, in western societies (USA in particular) extraversion is considered the ideal. The message sent loud and clear from our educational system, social events, seminars, the corporate world, and even TV sitcoms & reality shows is that interesting, successful people are talkative and gregarious, love the spotlight and have active social lives. If however, you are a quiet, sensitive loner you are somehow lacking as a person.

For me, as an introverted artist, there has been no sweeter pleasure than to spend hours or days alone crafting art, reading, thinking, taking long walks, etc - basically tuning in and traveling far & wide in my inner world. In solitude (or with 1 or 2 like-minded friends) I feel wonderful; but in large noisy groups I can't even think let alone carry on an interesting conversation with anyone.



Because of this, I've been called weird, boring, timid, shy, weak, spacey, stuck-up, a mouse, and too serious; yet when I avoided socializing I've been called unfriendly, stuck up and "no fun". So frustrating since I am none of these things! Unfortunately, extraverts seldom get it, and it's amazing what they read into someone who's quiet or simply wants to be alone.

Additionally, many (though not all) introverts are also empaths, which means we absorb energies around us. While this makes us intuitively gifted, it also causes us to be very sensitive and to take on others' "stuff" -- another reason we not only want but require ample time alone just to feel clear and grounded.

Extraverts get an energy boost from interacting with others (which is why they love socializing), but the opposite happens with empathic introverts: for us, peace & solitude recharge our batteries while encounters with others - even a brief chat - often causes an energy loss. Of course this isn't always the case with every person we meet, but it happens often enough for us to be very selective about who we interact with. Most extraverts don't realize that for empathic introverts, withdrawal only means we're just trying to keep our energy balanced; we're not shy or stuck-up, we're just doing what we need to do to feel good.

If you can relate to any of this, let me state for the record: there is nothing wrong with you for being who you are!!! You are a special person with your own unique way of experiencing life. Furthermore, your introversion is the key to your personal talents and abilities, and where you can make the biggest difference in the world. So be proud of it!




Also, I'm sure you'll appreciate the following books - they have certainly changed my life for the better and I highly recommend them: Introvert Power: Why Your Inner Life is Your Hidden Strength by Laurie Helgo, and Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World the Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain 

***********************************************************************************************

by Laurie Helgo

Rich with insights, advice and empowering perspectives, Introvert Power presents introversion in an entirely positive light, instead of a weakness to be overcome. The introvert's way of thinking and communicating as well as why we thrive in peace and solitude are explained rationally. Also presented is the important contribution we make to society - a real self-esteem booster for any introvert feeling inadequate in an extroverted society.


Some of the empowering insights presented include:

-Introverts comprise over half the population, instead of the typical assumption we are on the fringe

 
-It's been scientifically proven that introvert brains are busier and get easily overstimulated, which is why we seek quiet time and need to retreat to our inner world. Extrovert brains, conversely, are quieter (nothing to do with intelligence), which is why they seek external stimuli by creating a rich outer/social world

-"[Introverts] gain energy and power through inner reflection, and get more excited by ideas than by external activities."

-Introverts contribute so much to society! When you look around at the world, notice technical innovations, captivating novels and artistic creations - these are most likely products of introverts


The book also contains:

-Strategies for handling parties, dealing with the work world (chatty co-workers, meetings, etc), and declining invitations by being tactfully honest

-Insights for no longer apologizing for introversion, and accepting and embracing the gifts it offers

...and so much more

Personally, thanks to Introvert Power, I can now appreciate my gifts, draw strength from my inner world, and finally understand the way I am. I feel free to take time for myself and be alone. I also feel confident being quiet in groups and declining invitations. This book has truly changed my life and I highly recommend it.



******************************
*******************************************

by Susan Cain
Outstanding best-seller which covers topics such as:

- Why, in most parts of the world, we consider extroversion the ideal. This wasn't always the case; centuries ago people valued qualities like honesty, hard work, kindness, trustworthiness, etc over the "sociable salesperson" that came into being in the 20th century.

- How self-help gurus and groups contribute to believing we have to be extroverted to be successful

- How collaboration often kills creativity; i.e. working in solitude to solve problems produces better results than everyone throwing ideas on the table.

- How introverts and extroverts think differently

- How schools are set up to foster teamwork, instead of solitary concentration, and how, for the introvert who can't think with others chatting near them, it's difficult to do well in school.

- Leadership styles of introverts versus extroverts

- How introverts and extroverts can communicate with each other

-- and so much more




 

In Summary...

If you're an introvert feeling misunderstood and out of place in an extroverted society, I urge you to read these books to know loud and clear that 1) there is nothing wrong with you, 2) you are not alone, and 3) you are indeed a thoughtful, perceptive, gifted and interesting person!

If you're an extrovert, I also urge you read these books to gain insight and empathy for how introverts work. Please don't conclude we are weird, boring, depressed, etc just because we prefer solitude, quiet and deep conversation to crowds and noisy chit-chat. We just have a different way of experiencing life, and it works for us.
So celebrate who you are! :-)

9/11 Truth Search: Recommended Videos

Some may say this isn't exactly spiritual; however, I do believe this topic is in the realm of increasing our awareness, breaking out of the old paradigm, not being one of the sheeple, and questioning what the mainstream media tells us.

Anyway if you're like me and believe we've been lied to about 9/11 you'll love these!

(Note: I realize some of these videos are long, but they are OUTSTANDING so try to watch as much as possible - they’re worth it!)


*************************************************************************

9/11 Explained in 5 Minutes


Excellent video!!! (and it's only 5 minutes)

http://youtu.be/jLXyB5GtfBU


*************************************************************************

9/11 Pentagon Attack - Behind the Smoke Curtain - Barbara Honegger

Excellent presentation by Barbara Honegger which effectively disputes the official story of what happened at the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. It's filled with compelling evidence, quotes and sworn testimonies.
I know 3 hours is one long video, but even if you only watch at 5:00 - 27:00 (approx), your eyes will be opened to A LOT.


*************************************************************************

Dr Judy Wood at New Horizons - Where Did the Towers Go?

Dr. Judy Wood has an impressive resume of extensive study and expertise with Mechanical Engineering, Stress Analysis, Structural Mechanics, Deformation Analysis, Materials Characterization and Materials Engineering Science (you can read more about her credentials here).

According to Dr Wood, what we've been told about the Twin Towers could not possibly be true (i.e. that heat from airplanes caused the towers to collapse), and since September 11, 2001 she has dedicated her time to debunking these myths.

Her main argument is that if the towers collapsed, there would have been 1,250,000 tons of debris; instead they seemed to go "poof" into a giant dust cloud.

 I'm not sure what I believe about her Free Energy explanation, but the presentation is outstanding (and even though an engineer, she uses layman's terms).

Part 1:  (Presentation starts at about 3:30)

EXCELLENT movie examining all details of what we've been fed about the Twin Towers, the Pentagon and Flight 93:

Super Mind Music - Beautiful and Effective!

Super Mind Music (from http://www.mindpowermp3.com) is extraordinary music, not only because it is some of the most beautifully composed music I've ever heard, but  because it uses a proprietary technology called "brainwave entrainment", which "tunes" the brain to better states of mind.


With brainwave entrainment, you listen to the music with headphones on, and the music produces a frequency corresponding to the intended brain-state (such as sleep, creativity, memory improvement, etc)

With Super Mind Music, you can:
  • Activate your pineal gland (for expanded perception)
  • Increase your IQ
  • Create peace and relaxation
  • Foster healing of the body
  • Repair DNA
  • Sleep better
  • Elevate your mood
- and so much more!



Compilations are sold as downloadable mp3's, and are reasonably priced, at about $12 USD each  - plus, they are always offering specials. 
I have 3 compilations and 1 single track (click the links to listen to samples):



Schumann Resonance: Unforgettable Moments
Schumann Resonance - Unforgettable Moments
Magnificently beautiful classical music, which lifts you to wonderful heights. 
According to their website, "Tune into the frequency of earth - the Schumann Resonance at 7.83 Hz. Also known as the heartbeat of Earth, benefits of listening include enhanced reading/learning, rejuvenation, grounding, ESP activation, anti-jetlag, anti-mind control and improved stress tolerance. It can also help you feel balanced, grounded, whilst calming and focusing the mind. The breathtaking music may be some of the best modern classical music you have ever heard ...the movie soundtrack to the unforgettable moments in your life ...nostalgic, romantic, dramatic ...epic..."  Wonderful!!

 
 The Solfeggio Collection

The Awakening
Sacred Love (single track - from The Awakening)

(the first sound sample)

"This is the music of the heart chakra -- love and compassion, pure and simple." I love this track - it is heavenly and makes you feel completely at peace!


I am not affiliated with Super Mind Music, and am not profiting from mentioning them - I just love their music and the resulting benefits!

Enjoy :-)

Zen Entrepreneurship : Follow the clues to find your true calling!

The Zen of Entrepreneurship is about how to use your career path as a tool for spiritual growth. It's also about what's behind the logical advice for career success, addressing topics like: 
  • Clearing your mind to see the big picture and make wise decisions 
  • Identifying your inner patterns so they don't sabatoge you 
  • Following your gut instincts
  • Being aware of the clues the Universe is sending you
  • "Connecting the dots" to find your life's calling

Techcrunch just published an article about this - excellent read! - you can view it at 
http://techcrunch.com/2013/06/08/the-zen-of-entrepreneurship/


New Bestselling Book

Zen Entrepreneurship is a new release (now a bestseller!)  that is part story, part how-to manual about how to use your career path to foster your spiritual growth. It's an excellent read packed with wisdom, insights and exercises to shift your perceptions to help you find and live your life's work with joy.

About the Book (from my review on Amazon)

 

Zen Entrepreneurship is a must-read for anyone seeking to integrate their spiritual path with their career path.

The book chronicles the story of Riz Virk, a young, energetic entrepreneur & recent MIT graduate, who hopes to one day make it big in the software industry. He meets Ramaswami, who serves as his spiritual as well as business mentor, offering wisdom and guidance along Riz's path. What follows is an engaging adventure (sometimes misadventure) of spiritual awakening on the path to career success.


One of the great features of Zen Entrepreneurship is that it's not only a story, but also a how-to book. Each chapter concludes with a brief summary of exercises for you to practice, which will open your eyes and expand your awareness. You can read the story straight-through, or stop after each chapter to practice the exercises.


Some of what you'll learn is:


-identifying your energetic patterns which influence your career success as well as spiritual growth
-utilizing "right timing" and identifying "times of power"
-accessing hidden flows of energy
-trusting your intuition, not your logic, no matter how crazy it may seem
-using your work as a form of meditation
-strengthening your "dreaming attention" to receive clearer guidance from your dreams
-turning your career path into a treasure hunt, by following the clues the Universe sends you
- and so much more!



This book is a joy to read and a real page-turner (I first read this on a long flight to Boston, but the book was so engrossing I was hardly aware of the passage of time); it's conversational, down-to-earth and often hilarious. It's also very relatable - for everyone not just entrepreneurs.



Both an entertaining story as well as a practical manual, Zen Entrepreneurship will shift your perceptions and unleash your inner "career warrior", enabling you to find & do your life's work with passion and joy!
