Creating “Self”

The Power That

Is You

In creating “self” and in creating “story” in your life and living your life you will learn, develop and grow! You can change your self as well as change your story as you go because every day is a new day to start and begin again. Your life is in constant flux and can change any time and any place along the journey!

Anatma:  The self is always changing.

In creating “self” you have to feel a sense of “self”! Your values and beliefs. What you identify with, especially in defining yourself!

Is it about finding yourself? Or Creating “self”?

When I went on this journey of self I thought is was about finding myself. I have discovered that I need to focus on creating the self I need and want when it comes to living my life each and every day! I am more present and in the moment now. I need and want to do more of what I love and feed my passions!

I am having an interesting experience in that I am becoming more comfortable with the constant change in my life every day! It is not all about me and there is a bigger world to experience out there. It is about being open to the possibilities and the opportunities. It is about being in the present and conquering every new day!

I do not have to constantly change to my environment, however; I can “be” in an environment that is constantly changing!

  • Practice acceptance and forgiveness of myself.
  • Process my emotions, feelings and thoughts in order to release and let go of what is no longer working or serving me in living my life.
  • Part of living life is the constant state of flux and learning to embrace it, love it and learn from it.
  • Open my heart and come from a place of love because change and uncertainty can surprise and amaze me with wonderful gifts.
  • There is nothing better than gaining life experiences.

Getting Schooled

Lesson Time

Do you have a particular lesson that continues to show up in your life?

I do! Sometimes it is nice and other times it hard knocks me in the head. Why? What am I NOT getting?

STOP hitting the repeat button already!

Doing . . .

It is one thing to know what I need and what I want, but it does not happen when I want it to happen! I cannot time it or schedule it to just happen. I certainly have no control over certain things! Why do I worry and stress? Why do I add pressure and tension? Just let it go, right!

 I need to do what I love and spend my time doing that instead! I need to do what makes me happy and brings me joy. I need to take pleasure in that. Maybe the lessons would be more enjoyable and fun!

Being . . .

I need to be in control and take charge in living my life! I need to release the ego and let go of the attitude that is trying to take control and be in charge at times. I need to have self confidence instead of self doubt and fear. I need to use my energy and power for the good and the positive!

I also need to be in control and take charge of my emotions, feelings and thoughts! I need to reign it in instead of it riding right over me, especially in emotionally charged situations. I am working on leaning into discomfort and facing my feelings and fears! I find it doable and that I can cope and deal. I find my comfortable place to be okay with it and move on again!

Practicing . . .

The most important lesson that comes back to me in a good way is to always love myself no matter what! I tap into feeling good about myself because it helps me feel good about what is going on. I tune into my confidence and own it. I look at my needs and what I care about and let the rest go!

I am practicing patience, but I still have very little of it to give to myself let alone others! I am finding that when I am in the moment and focusing on the task at hand that patience becomes a little easier because I am in the process. I am enjoying the process. I am discovering that good things happen in being patient!

Slowing . . .

I enjoy slowing down and being mindful! I am amazed at what I am aware of and what I pay attention to now. I am able to tune in to myself from the inside out and connect with myself. It is exciting and fulfilling!

In slowing down I am taking the time to relax and rest too! I need that down time not only for my sanity, but for my whole being. I feel less panicked and do not feel that fight or flight response either. It all works out in the end, so why not ease into it, relax and just get comfortable!

Here’s to Working It, Gaining From It and Being Rewarded! Love to Hear Your Thoughts, Please Share!

No Limits

One BIG World

I dream about “the sky has no limits”, however; I still put a false ceiling above me when going for what I want or need in my life! Why is that I wondered one day!

  1. What do I need to clear out and declutter in my life?
  2. What do I need clarity on as far as choices, decisions, changes, and transitions in my life?
  3. What do I need to do to define/redefine meaning and purpose in my life?
  4. What do I need to question and/or answer in my life?
  5. What do I need to do to make those changes for the better and transition in my life?

I needed to tune in and turn inward! I needed to tap into my talents, gifts and passions again. I needed to find my motivation and inspiration to spark that creative energy again. I needed to develop and grow as well as learn and experience again. Just get curious and explore!

  • What am I meant to do with my life and how to go about doing it?

I needed to step forward, take action and just get out there in trying new things and opening up my world to new experiences! I feel freer and lighter. I feel more open to embrace the good and the positive. I feel joy and happiness as well as richness and abundance. Just feel better about my whole being!

  • What am I passionate about?
  • What excites and motivates me?
  • What sparks my creative side or intellectual side?
  • What skills, talents and gifts do I have?
  • What life experiences do I have?
  • What life experiences do I want to make?

I seem to revert back to my childhood when I answer these questions! I reflect on the games I played and the fantasy worlds I made up!

  • I love to read.
  • I love to explore and go on adventures.
  • I love to escape and get outside my regular elements.
  • I love to be with nature and the wild things.
  • I love being active and on the move.

What would I do if there were NO LIMITS???

I think about the endless possibilities and opportunities!

My Three’s Company

Emotions, Feelings & Thoughts

I get it and it clicks into place for me now! Your energy comes from emotions, feelings and thoughts. I am starting to understand why this part of my energy comes out so overwhelming and overpowering in certain situations. Especially the emotionally charged situations I find myself in more than I would like to be!

I knew I had buttons that could be pushed, but never thought I had a wind up key too! I think about that wind up monkey on the shelf growing up and how sometimes it would go off all by itself – creepy. Where is that “stop” button that I know is around here somewhere. Talk about a dangerous combination when those 2 get going!

My main emotion that comes out is anger.

My main feeling that comes out is defensive.

My main thought is the color red.

Then comes another whole set of emotions, feelings and thoughts, like shame, guilt, blame.

What do you think should be done with emotions, feelings and thoughts?

Should you handle it, deal with it and move on! Should you stay with that emotion and give yourself the permission to feel it. Should you have the experience of emotions, feelings and thoughts. Should you practice the art of avoidance and wish it away!

I usually have to experience my emotions, feelings and thoughts! I struggle with pushing it aside and hoping it just goes away. I want to have a positive energy instead of a negative energy about me. I am able to have that positive energy when I clear my body completely and overall by becoming aware of my emotions, feelings and thoughts!

In becoming more aware of my emotions, feelings and thoughts I have the ability to tune into my buttons and wind up key as well as my triggers and trip ups! I know I need to slow down and not continue to speed up. I need to be in better control of my emotions, feelings and thoughts and just how to handle it. I need to tap into the good energy!
