Find your place.
Hold your space in the world.
To yourself especially.
Be slow when your body needs you to be. Not because you can’t power through, but because that’s what listening is about.
You can overrule the messages from your body. You can run rough shod all over it.
And it, like the faithful vessel that it is will absorb the shock of impact over and over again like a strong vehicle.
Until it doesn’t and then the built up impact of the repeated shocks will knock you off for months at a time.
Dis-ease is a way for your body to catch your attention and focus you on IT, if you fail to do it the other way.
So learn to be acutely aware of your body. It is not a distraction from your work you must do in the world. It is your equal partner. It’s like trying to cook with a hand tied behind your back. You can do a fairly good job, but it’s not your best work. After all it is the vessel through which the work gets done.
Much like you would care for your car after a long road trip– you would wash and detail it and do some regular maintenance on it. So too must you care for your body with love and respect, the vehicle by which you do your work in this lifetime.
Sit quietly for a few minutes and deepen your breathing. Do a mental body scan from head to toe. Be kind to the parts that draw your attention to them through aches and pains. Give a mental kiss, send love, express compassion and wish it well like you would a dear sick friend. Promise to check back on it soon and be tender with it like you would your sick child.
Mantra: I love my body with all my heart. I am Divinely created and I am perfect just the way I am.
Your work is accelerating, the actions you are taking are all in preparation for cleansing the old, to show clarity and looking inside you to see that all is well.
It is time to fall in love with who you are and what you look like. This is necessary for what is next. Your physical form is what is important for the process because it is beacon of hope and light for a lot of people so show that you love yourself. It is from here that you will express what you need to do and who you be in the world so ensure that it is of and in the form of love for yourself just as your love for nature, animals and other human forms.
Be more aware of the thoughts you think on yourself – be more aware of the way you look at yourself and faults you see. There are no faults. Your physical form is perfect just the way it is. It is the mental capacity that you need to shift – to make space to truly love yourself, your physical body and the image of who and how you see yourself,
To fully express as a spiritual being requires a love and appreciation for your physical form. Your purpose is to help people care for this physical form so that they can manifest their full destiny- because the physical form is how they can express their God self in this life and it is the physical vessel that is the vehicle to evolution and growth in the next life.
The How is Arbonne, the Why is because you are teaching them to be good stewards of their body- this physical form so that they can fulfill their God purpose.
TéO, I met someone yesterday. Meeting her was like getting splashed with cold water when you don’t expect to…it’s refreshing, but in a jarring sort of way. Why is she here?
She is a mirror for people she encounters. A conduit for them to find their way back to themselves. She must first recognize that there is no wrong way. There is just the way. Every thought, action and motion is closely orchestrated to bring her closer into alignment. She needs to recognize them as such and trust that every person is there to show her herself. The people she is put in front of are there to help her get closer to herself. There is no wrong. She is a conduit to show people their right by birth.
Stay grounded H.M., practice quiet patient listening, listen for the pauses between the noise.
Your role is to help polish the diamond in the rough. She is you when you first found yourself.
There is something special about being awake really early.
I feel one with the Universe when I go for a walk or a run.
Consciousness of life hasn’t yet kicked in and it’s the sort of suspended space where you’re awake yet your mind is more or less still blank and more receptive to creative nudges.
That’s when I do most of my writing.
As to working out, yes the sense of accomplishment, and not having to worry about it later in the day is quite profound as well.
More than anything else I find that it’s a mindset shift that it required, and then the body comes along easily for the ride.
There are times that I feel the need to sleep more, and then I do. I allow myself to be fluid and honor my body by listening closely to its needs.
To smile is to allow others a glimpse of your soul. It is the way souls communicate with each other. If someone smiles at you, you can’t help but smile back. This is a soul greeting.
A smile says I see you. I truly see you and I receive you.
When we lack awareness or are living in a state of autopilot, we neglect to smile. We move away from grace. We move away from love.
A smile is the simplest act of charity.
It is an expression of love.
It is compassion for another and it can be the only ray of sunshine in someone else’s life.
Smiling May Induce Love Everywhere
To smile is to feed the world joy.
To smile is to surge joy through you; it is an instant pick me up.
You can’t be sad when you smile and you can’t help but smile when someone smiles at you.
Because it infuses light, love and joy among those around you who witness your smile.
You can be in a war zone and be completely at peace. You can stand in a chaotic place like Legoland and be at peace because the wellspring of peace, the source of it is within you. Who you BE in the world doesn’t change with where you are. That stays the same regardless of the interactions.
Your True North, your Guiding Star is your inner guidance that drives you forward.
If you can tap into this Source within– if you can actually use the power that is latent within you to slow you down, to steady your heartbeat, to pause your step, your thoughts, your breath and your pace, you will find peace.
Peace isn’t just a state of mind, it’s a state of heart. Peace is what will help you live your greatest potential.
It’s not in DOING that life is won. It’s in the BEING. You can BE only when you are at peace with who you are. You can be at peace with who you are only if you find that stillness within you.
Once you do, your life could be full speed ahead- but at complete peace with who you are in the world – and from that place- you will find a wellspring of everything you need to propel you forward at light speed. Because after all, time is relative.
So lately I’ve been having these flash thoughts– doubting my ability to do certain things. Thoughts like– “it’s too hard,” “maybe I’m not cut out to do this,” maybe this is not for me.” They don’t linger because I immediately squash the thought. But I’m curious why this is coming up…and what I can to do about it.
TéO: “Stay focused on the doing. Stay focused on the process and not the outcome and be consistent with your activity. Be mindful of those thoughts but don’t condemn yourself for having them. Simply bless and release them and support your inner child to be happy and confident in what she is capable of doing.
Remind her that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step and that everything challenging has been overcome by simply being in the activity needed and doing it without being too focused on the outcome.
This is what it looks like to have complete faith in the activity that you are called to put forth.”
I think back on my days in New York. I had no idea how I was going to accomplish the milestones that I did. I simply put one foot in front of the other and forged on. Trusting that the work I was doing would yield results. And it did. Just one foot in front of the other.
