Live an inspired life, a purposeful life, an uncluttered life- wisdom from Inspiration by Dr. Wayne Dyer

Live an inspired life, a purposeful life, an uncluttered life; wisdom from Inspiration by Dr. Wayne Dyer

I just finished watching Dr. Wayne Dyer’s presentation of his book, Inspiration, about living one’s life inspired and ON purpose.  If ever I have doubts whether there’s grace in the universe, today is not one of those days.  Why?  I attribute it to grace that without a coach, a guru, or a mentor for most of my life, I came to the conclusions and choices that Dr. D (as he’s known) advocates in his book for living an inspired life, a life ON purpose to fulfill one’s purpose.

He says there are a few things that are KEY:

  • Change your awareness of yourself.  Jung said one of the most important things you can do is to become aware of yourself.  I agree.  I have said this in many posts and in many places on my website as my work is built upon this principle.
  • Put your attention on what can be improved or changed rather than on what is wrong.  Maslow said this, I say this, and The Law of Attraction is based on this.
  • Allow time for quiet and contemplation.  There needs to be space for inspiration to enter and dwell.  A quiet mind is closest to god. Inspiration and guidance are often delivered in a soft voice; if your life is too loud or chaotic, you may not hear the soft voice.  (See part 2 of this post)
  • Motivation has to do with taking an idea all the way to completion.  Inspiration has to do with an idea taking YOU where you’re meant to go. You surrender to this; you trust it.  You allow yourself to be infused with this.  Your spirit is aligned with your desire and these are aligned with divine will and your individual will.  We are then moved into resourcefulness and creativity- we find the way and the means to get done what needs to be done along the way.  Obstacles are challenges not an excuse to give up or stop.

Through grace, guidance, etc., I have done these things and my life could not be more ON purpose or inspired.  I certainly did not expect or plan to wind up here.  I planned to be an architect, but being one didn’t mesh well with motherhood so I surrendered to inspiration and divine will and here I am.  Woo Hoo!!!  At times it’s felt like Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride (one of the scariest rides of my first trip to Disneyland as a small child), but when the ride concludes, you emerge in the sunlight and are no worse for the adventure, maybe even better.

Why live an inspired life? Patanjali said the reward for an inspired life is that your thoughts breaks free of their bounds, your mind transcends limitations, you enter the field of all possibilities, your consciousness expands in every direction, you find yourself in a great new world of god realization, and you discover yourself to be a greater person than you’d known.  While all of this is true, it’s not instantaneous; these things occur because of what you DO when you’re inspired and who you BECOME when you live an inspired life.

Dr. Dyer defines true nobility as being better than you used to be.

Self-mastery and self-discipline

Self-mastery and self-discipline are the foundation of good relationships with others.

Success or Failure: Perspective, Beliefs and Persistence

Success or Failure: Perspective, Beliefs and Persistence

Change your beliefs = change your results!

All failure begins this way:
People start out with high hopes about fulfilling their dreams, their life purpose, being successful, becoming balanced, happy and fulfilled, becoming wealthy,etc….., but when their perception of their circumstances suggests a lesser outcome is more likely (perhaps  an unexpected obstacle arises), their reaction becomes the initial seed of failure. This process destroys the dreams of countless people.  One of the myriad benefits of getting life purpose coaching or Money Mastery coaching is that the coach will help you to see the obstacles for what they are and hold you accountable to pursuing and fulfilling the dreams or intentions you initially brought to your coach.
Take a look at how this process works:
1. We all have two parts in our thinking: One is our dream or goal, and the second is the belief (conscious or subconscious limiting belief) that it might not ever happen. This is where most people start out.  This is like driving with the parking brake on- the parking brake makes it extremely difficult to move forward much less achieve acceleration or transformation.  It takes tremendous effort on the engine’s part, consumes a tremendous amount of fuel in order to move forward AND it’s highly stressful and will create damage.  In this analogy, we can all see that it makes no sense to operate a car this way.  Yet, many of us do attempt to operate our lives and our businesses this way and we wonder why we don’t succeed or why we can’t do everything needed to succeed.  We wonder why our spiritual, personal, and economic growth is slow or difficult.  So often it’s a case of looking at only half of the equation (the doing half) and forgetting the other half: WHO/HOW you have to BE to succeed.

2. Next, something begins to spark or inspire a person to take action on their dream, their life purpose, or their mission. Yet, not having a full understanding of the Laws of Success, they may not be aware of or receptive to the changes, the personal and spiritual growth required to realize their dream outcome.  Many individuals are not open to growth and change; this shows up as resistance.

3. Their subconscious may manifest an obstacle to keep them from experiencing anything “new” – a pre-requisite for moving forward.  This new challenge is perceived as a point of failure.
It is at this point in a person’s journey where moving forward becomes too painful or fearful, and a person usually chooses to stay “safe”, to remain in the realm of what they’ve known and are comfortable with.  This is known as one’s comfort zone. Being willing to move out of one’s comfort zone allows one to move forward, see the bigger win they are hoping for, and move into the growth and change necessary!
For any kind of change to occur, some sort of shift is necessary. Your beliefs control your perception of everything in your world, which in turn creates your reality. If you want to change your results, you must change your beliefs AND shift your perception. Until you shift your perception and your beliefs, you will continue to make choices that keep you where you are.  Without such a shift, you will likely feel defeated and give up on your dreams.
In theory, it’s really simple … but in practice, many people find it difficult because they really don’t understand all beliefs are nothing but illusions anyway. These illusions are so strong people think that they are real and they lack the knowledge, training or guidance to transform their beliefs.
The power of belief is astounding. I encourage you to study its mysteries for yourself and see what changes you truly do have the power to make.  Want some help?  I have powerful graceful tools to facilitate your transformation.  Contact me: kamila@MoneyMastery.us

Esoteric Astrology, the economy, and your spiritual growth

Esoteric Astrology, the economy, and your spiritual growth

Since the economic downturn began, so many people have been taking stock of their lives on a deeper level than they normally do, re-evaluating their priorities, and questioning/re-assessing who they are separate from their material wealth, possessions, and security. This is one of the positive outcomes of this economic stress.

In light of this, for those who have an interest in esoteric astrology, I direct you to this month’s news from Astrologer Lynn Hayes: http://www.astrodynamics.com

Wayne Dyer: Excuses Begone

Wayne Dyer: Excuses Begone

Wayne Dyer’s new book: Excuses Begone gives readers 18 affirmations to antidote 18 of the most common excuses and gives a 6 part exercise to do on the excuses that you use.

Here are some snippets:

Don’t underestimate your ability to change.

Fulfill your passion and your purpose by eliminating all excuses.  Simply accept no excuses from yourself.

You can change your DNA by changing your perception.

Passion within you is god speaking.

The effectiveness of The Placebo Effect is due to the power of belief and due to thoughts becoming things.

Never let money keep you from living your dharma or your purpose.

Don’t let rules stop you.  Practice civil disobedience.

“With god, all things are possible”- this means EVERYTHING; nothing is excluded!

All excuses are the result of misalignment.

Can you imagine God/Source saying “I’m too tired” or “I don’t have enough time”?

If your thoughts match Source/God, you have the same power as Source, you set into motion the creative forces in the Universe, and you attract Divine Mind.

Make your #1 relationship your relationship with the divine.

Allow the divine to work it’s magic.

Suspend all blame, take full responsibility, surrender to what’s bigger than you, be willing to transform, shed EVERYTHING you’ve been unwilling to do.

It’s never too late.  many people have created highly successful careers and businesses after midlife.

Carl Jung said: “Our greatest problems are not to be solved but to be outgrown”.

See the hidden blessings in the challenges you have.

Feelings are your manifesters!

Lao-tzu: change your beliefs, your perception, your thoughts and transform yourself, your life and your finances

Change your beliefs, your perception, your thoughts and transform yourself, your life and your finances

”If you correct your mind, the rest of your life will fall into place.”

Lao-tzu

 

This may be the most appropriate quote for my website because my work with clients is all about working with them to become aware of and ultimately changing their thinking, their beliefs and their perception of reality and of possibility.

It’s both my opinion as well as my personal experience that when we become aware of and endeavor to shift our beliefs and perceptions that total transformation becomes possible.

My own thinking and perception today is soooo different than it was 20 years ago.  As a result, my experience and my behavior are quite transformed and I’m much closer to realizing my full potential.  My teenage daughter even thinks I’m totally awesome.  How rare is that?

The Creature from Jekyll Island: financial markets bailout

If you want to know why the towers of American capitalism are crumbling, I recommend reading “The Creature from Jekyll Island” by G. Edward Griffin. It’s not an easy book to find, but once you start reading it’s hard to put down. In fact, in many ways it’s a murder mystery about the financial “murder” of the middle class.

A very important lesson in the book is how political leaders use financial spin to deceive the public. The very, very rich use the system to legally steal from the rest of us by appealing to our sense of patriotism. When our leaders say, “We’re bailing out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac because we want to protect the American people,” they really mean “We’re saving our rich friends.”

A bailout can be different things. First, printing more money is a kind of bailout that leads to higher inflation. Rather than protecting people, it makes life for the poor and middle class more expensive. The other kind of bailout is protection for our rich and incompetent friends. If you or I fail at business, we fail. No one bails us out or forgives our indebtedness.  If we cheat and get caught, we go to jail. However, if you’re rich and politically connected, your incompetence may likely be protected by a government bailout.  Some would say that this is the antithesis of capitalism.  Some would say this is communistic.

What many people don’t know is that the securities that the government bought from these ailing financial giants at full price (the bailout) will later be sold back to these same companies for ten cents on the dollar and these companies will then sell them again on the secondary market for 30-40 cents on the dollar; allowing these companies to get rich again while the American public is left with the crippling debt.
