When you manage your mind you free your spirit. You are a powerful creator. Be a force for good.
What if your inner self-talk was encouraging, kind, and loving? What if you had an inner cheerleader instead of an inner critic? What if fears and limitations didn’t keep you stuck? How would you show up for yourself today?
It is possible to re-train your brain to serve your spirit instead of letting it lead your life in a fear-based, low self-worth mindlessness existence. Empower your thinking with mindfulness and creativity, discover and live your unique gifts, shatter your limiting fear-driven beliefs and shush that negative self-talk. Open your heart to the power of your purpose.
Creativity is the power of choice. It’s curiosity and experimenting to try a new, fresh approach to life. Creative thinking is an inborn skill that can be cultivated and developed. The more you create your moments out of a deeply present intentional place, the more authentic you become to your highest potential and self-expression. You can only make creative choices in the present moment. The opposite of creativity is routine. Creativity is our nature, is constant, is the energy of the Universe we life in. It is an alive and dynamic energy that you have access to.
Mindfulness is present moment awareness, so you can break the habits of mind that keep you stuck and choose to respond rather than react to your life. When you are mindless you are reactive - re-acting. Any time you are caught in re-acting, re-living, or re-creating, you are not here in the present moment, which is where your power to respond and create lives. Mindfulness is simply (ha!) the practice of training yourself to become aware that you are aware.
Character Strengths + Gene Keys are my favorite tools for understanding exactly who you are. It is powerful knowledge knowing your natural strengths, talents and abilities. There are amazing tools grounded in the latest cutting edge science. What would your days look like to fulfill your potential? Gene keys are more “contemplative” but I believe you ARE a living quantum energy field encased in a dynamic energy system called your body. And just as the oak tree sleeps in the acorn, your potential sleeps in you.
