Realising your own voice

"The recognition of your own voice will not only shield you from those who will belittle your life choices, but it will also propel you closer to the dreams that seemed distant when you ignored your own worth." — Dodinsky

Realising your voice is easier said than done. How exactly does one come to realise their own voice and unleash their own uniqueness? How do we know when we have found our own voice amongst the many, many others that seem to overpower and over-ride ours. Allowing your voice to come through is definitely challenging that I know from personal experience. But we cannot allow ourselves to live a hum-drum of an existence as opposed to living life they way you have always dreamed of.

Your voice is YOUR POWER!

Ask yourself these four questions:

  • What are you good at?
  • What do you love doing?
  • What need can you serve?
  • What is life asking of you?

When you have answered these questions honestly and shamelessly is when you are on the right path. Now all it requires is that you work your *** off persistently and passionately until your dream has been realised.  Your voice is absolutely necessary in this world, never forget that! And don't you dare give up now!

Give what you most like to recieve!

Whatever you think people are withholding from you - praise, appreciation, assistance, loving care, and so on - give it to them. You don’t have it? Just act as if you had it, and it will come. Then, soon after you start giving, you will start receiving. You cannot receive what you don’t give. — Eckhart

Give what you would most like to receive! Do you want something so dire that deep inside you it feels like  you would die without it? Do you want love, appreciation, loyalty and understanding? Give it! The very thing we want is the thing we ought to give away. When we give freely without expecting absolutely anything in return that is when we set up ourselves for receiving abundantly. The simple act of giving tells the universe that what you want and are a vibrational  match thereby bringing what you so ardently desire into your possession.

Liberation of thy ego

Letting go of your ego allows you to live limitlessly. For it is the ego which holds you back from getting what you really want.-Janneke

How many times have you instigated a fight or conflict just to satisfy your ego? How many times have become  depressed because you are not where your ego thinks you ought to be in life right now? How many times have you felt angry because you believe people did not treat you the way you think you should be treated? Many of us live our entire lives duelling for the sake of primping our inflated egos. Each of us allowing ourselves to feel worthy in some way or another even those who feel inferior.The crisis arises when this sense of self worth becomes exaggerated to the extent that it leads to a life of suffering.

You are the creator of your own reality-through the ways in which you interpret your environment,your ego and mind draw  new conclusions and new desires. Letting go of your desires and releasing your attachment from the outcome is a key aspect of manifestation.  Sometimes hyper-focusing on what you want is ultimately detrimental because you are focusing on the lack of it, thus your vibrational energy  remains the same. The universe will not grant your desires if you are not a vibrational match to it. For us to manifest what we want we need to get out of our own way and remove your mind and especially your ego from the equation. You need to practice setting your intentions, letting go of it and trusting that the universe will ALWAYS take care of you!

We are all addicted to something

We are all addicted to something that takes away the pain. As humans we are not immune to suffering....We all suffer. Pain is inevitable. Now when I speak of suffering  I am referring to the Buddhist definition of suffering and yes I am  a CHRISTIAN but I feel that knowing the principles of another religion doesn't cause me any harm, there is always room for doubt it strengthens my faith in God.

Their definition of suffering is basically that suffering is a way of life this includes our daily suffering such as minor illnesses, sadness, unpleasant things and grief.  It is also caused by cravings, wanting and desireousness.It also notes that the only way out of suffering is to live mindfully aware of the present moment and to follow said path.This path promotes right views, speech, action, livelihood, perseverance, mindfulness and meditation.

When we try to hide, to take away the pain, to lesson the hurt with all sorts of things for some it may be addictions to drugs, certain unhealthy habits, psychological dispositions etc. What we fail to understand is that this  simply masks the real issues at hand, we must get real with ourselves, we must bring to our awareness our true issues - don't be afraid to! Because when we are aware of our issues that is when we can allow the healing to happen- with love of course! Nothing can heal like love can.

Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls

''Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.'' — Kahlil Gibran

The thing about challenging times is that when you recover you  are  sooooooo  much better like 1000, no wait a billion times better. It's like you went in a mere coal and after extreme exposure to heat and pressure you came out a diamond.Well it pretty much is that. Except using broken people and coming out complete functioning members of society.

The art of introspection which is something we develop  going through the challenges in life or some of us are naturally inclined introspective people is  ultimately the key to happiness. Think about it! Without being able to adequately process our emotions we are basically useless. We won't be able to function as complete individuals in society  and the inability to do so is what will cause us to fall out with friends or loved ones or  prevent us from making any new lasting and meaningful bonds. How can you make human connections when you are not acting as a human should?

When we allow ourselves to ride the waves of the emotions we are experiencing, but not to succumb to their wrath, when allow ourselves to just be and allow life to take its natural course great things will happen. When we allow the divine, God , and the universe to speak through us, truly getting to the core of our being, understanding the reason for our existence and who we are. That is when we become limitless!

Great opportunities will waste away

Great opportunities will waste away if you don't act on them immediately and persistently. In almost every aspect of my life I have experienced that. I find I tend to delay my satisfaction for some odd reason. As if I don't deserve it! Or who am I to think that I could get something as great as this. I don't know if this happens to many people, but if it does come on over to unicorn island and drink the cocktail of courage so that we can finally get what we really want.

It is absolutely absurd to think that things will happen if there were meant to .....
 I can't believe I am still stuck in this mind-set. I mean sure some things are definitely out of our hands. But you have to work  for everything you want in life. No excuses and no lies!

My advice is simple if you love something don't you dare let it go for a second, it is yours keep it safe with you. Because that little bird might just fly sky high away from you. And no I mean to lock it away and throw away the key. Nurture it, let it roam in your magnificent garden, show it with love and attention. But don't you let that bird get out of your sight because the minute you do is the minute someone else will swipe it away and take away your pride and joy. When that day comes when someone else has your beloved bird you must decide whether you want to continue to pursue it or find a new love. If you want to continue to pursue it you better hope that your actions portrayed the love and affection that you held in your heart for you beloved bird.

Winning formula for success

I will not be lazy. I will not  be like everyone else in society. I will not accept what I have now if I know I deserve better. I will not sleep until I finish . I will not leave until I'm done. I will not stop until I stop breathing. I will be whatever I want to be even if it takes sacrifice. Even if I have little to give.Even if it takes time.Even if I have no time at all. I will succeed.

I will commit my life, my every breath to the fulfilment of my dreams.

The stairway to success requires that you build it ,it is under construction ,no  one will regret it like you will if your path to greatness is not paved.So why are you still on your butt? Get moving!If you want success bad enough you will have to put in the hours ,you will have to dedicate your time and energy to the fulfilment of your goals.You will have to be persistent.You will have to push through the pain because the pain will come -it is inevitable!

So you have weakness,who doesn't ? Annihilate them ,focus on what you can do with all your energy. Remember if you want success you must be willing to give up the notion of pleasure and gratification now for abundance later.You must be willing to put in the extra hours to work on your weak areas to make them strong.You must give up those lame *** excuses you have, get over yourself and ask for help where you need it. 

You must do whatever it takes to be the best! You must remain determined to your goals even when your emotions tell you otherwise.

Greatness! Who will answer its call? Who will dare to venture into the realm of awesomness and unlimited opportunities? Who dares to be legendary?

 Let's commit ourselves,our journey and every fibre of our being into being great. May greatness be with you always.Namaste!

To many people undervalue what they are!

Too many people undervalue what they are! We focus and fuss over our ''flaws'' and our ''shortcomings'' and forgetting that what we focus on we magnify.

We ought to acknowledge our ''flaws'' and ''shortcomings''  but zoom in on our magnificence.

The habit of undervaluing ourselves comes from comparing ourselves to others, focusing on the negatives and forgetting that we are stars. Give yourself some credit you are the remains of of cosmic energy that has lit the earth for forever. How can  you be satisfied living a life less than you deserve? Get on up and work for the life you believe you deserve even if it's a lonely road.

Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to understand ourselves.

Perplexed huh? Why is that dude so annoying?

When it boils down to it, the parts of us within ourselves are reflected in the people we interact with. What most of us fail to realise is this -what bothers us most about others is something, more often than not, we do without even being completely aware of it.
When you notice someone do something and it evokes a negative emotion inside of you this means they are reflecting something inside you which is similar. Whatever it may be it is a belief that you have formed at the subconscious level and you must acknowledge that particular characteristic. But do not let it determine who you are at the core of your being. To grow as individuals we must explore that characteristic that we dislike about others and choose whether we keep it or not. Become more aware of when you do those things you dislike so much in others. Ask yourself whether this characteristic is serving you in anyway. If that characteristic draws negative energy from others when you express it then you must accept that though it is a part of you it is not all of who you are -and let it go.

Waiting for words

I was waiting for words, words to fill the bereavement you left. Waiting on the something more to be brought to me but that subtle disillusionment of my fantasies failed to fulfil its expectations.
Speaking of expectations I thought it was your civil duty to be my savour and protector but you'd coincide with nothingness at even the slightest emotional trigger. I was waiting for words to fill me up where you left because that's all I was a vacant, frail, shell of a human. Because that's the only way you knew. That is what you were taught.
 Perhaps we are all screwed up in some way, different shades of crazy, falling victim to the behaviours, attitudes and decisions of those who raised us. Until we can get the courage to break free, think for ourselves and to re-paint the course of our destiny our lives will forever live in constant stagnation.

The lame *** excuses we tell ourselves

We are all plagued by some mis-guided belief that we have repeated to ourselves over and over again until we have surrendered our power to this illusion of reality which does not really exist. But we keep on chugging, using the same beliefs and attitudes that do not serve us well.That I call utter INSANITY!

Why do we do this to ourselves? One thing is certain is that we are afraid, afraid to look  bad trying something new and different, afraid that we will make a permanent mistake and most definitely unwilling to accept the responsibility for our own action, putting our lives course in someone else's hands.

At the end of the day, whether your excuse is :

  • I will get to it someday
  • I need to get more feedback first
  • I don't have time for that
  • I can't afford it 
  • That might work for someone but not for me
  • They have an advantage I don't have
  • I wish I could but....
  • I don't know what I want
  • It's not the right time
  • They are forcing me to
  • No one really cares what I think...

To get rid of these lame  *** excuses we must learn to take responsibility for your actions. Blaming someone for where you are in life, regardless of your situation is saying that you are powerless which is utter crap! You are the sole navigator of your destiny, claim your steering wheel and steer your vessel to higher places.
