This Isn’t About Him, Her, or Them…It’s About YOU October 13, 2011

One night, in a deep meditative state, I heard a voice from deep within in me, yet at the same time all around me say, “This isn’t about him, it’s about you.”

I was in the throes of healing from heartbreak. The guy I’m speaking of is one of those soul connections, you know the kind where you get knocked off your feet the first time you see the person? Yep, I was a goner from minute one.

This person has influenced my life in profound ways. He himself hasn’t done this consciously to my knowledge, however my response to him was what ultimately delivered so much healing to my heart, to my body, and to my life. He did not want the same things I wanted from our relationship, but sitting here now, I understand that it was best for things to happen the way they did.

Here are three of the many things I have learned from this:

1) It’s never what you think it’s about. When someone crosses your path, what you feel and experience has nothing to do with them. It’s all about you. Everything they call up in you is their gift to you, but how you handle it from there is your gift to yourself, to them, and ultimately to the world. Remember, this isn’t about him (or her), it’s about you. Take care of YOU, and that is always what’s best for everyone in the bigger scheme. If someone is meant to be there, they will remain standing in the end.

2)  As we become willing to always turn within and look at ourselves when we feel hurt, jealous, insecure, lonely, resentful, etc, we get to find freedom from these feelings. If you are blaming someone or something else for your suffering, you better get use to suffering. Suffering transforms when we choose to respond to our feelings from a place of curiosity and eagerness to learn and awaken. Then, everyone and everything becomes our teacher and instead of being trapped in victim mode, we become grateful for the experiences, and we become courageous warriors who use everything to teach us more about ourselves. As a result, we bring light to the places within us where we lack self acceptance, forgiveness, compassion, and love, and we begin to accept, feel compassion for ourselves and others, experience a release from resentment as we see our part in things (even if our part is just that we are refusing to let go of old stories), and finally we begin to get a real sense of what it feels like to have self-love and a kind of real trust that knows we are being taken care of, even if we can’t see it, understand it, or explain it.

3) When we speak to others, respond to others, or share our time and energy with others, it’s important to observe ourselves and be aware if we are speaking and doing things with an intention of eliciting a specific response or outcome, rather than just wanting to be real and present with them. As we begin to observe our needs for controlling and manipulating circumstances and situations, to get certain results, we can then feel the feelings of fear that drive us to do that to begin with. For me, when I do that, it’s because I am afraid if I just be myself, vulnerable, honest, and just plain me, that I will find out the person on the receiving end thinks I’m boring, average, not cool, nothing special, and not someone they feel the need to go out of their way to spend time with and to love. The real fear is of myself, and not wanting to look at my needs for others approval as a result of not having my own approval. If I am conscious of this, I can just go right to the root of my fear, and begin to work through it by sending love and acceptance and approval to myself. If I am unable to do this, I can at least ask for help. When I have those things, I no longer need it from anyone else, and therefore I am free to respond from a neutral place, unattached to any result.

As you observe your fears, it is helpful to know there is power there for you if  can bring enough consciousness to it to shift. All suffering is just an opportunity to reclaim our power. As you begin to notice and bring awareness to your fears and suffering, you can consciously choose NOT to respond from them, and therefore as you respond from a neutral space, unattached to the outcome, you start to transform yourself, your relationships, and your life.

I don’t now about you guys, but I am flying pretty high the last couple days. As I keep sharing with you, there is a BIG shift in the collective consciousness on the 28th of October so the  days leading up to it are pretty juicy. I have given you a daily process you can be doing, to help support your transition into this next phase of the human experience. We are in for some yummy goodness! Life is gonna get really cool! However, you may be feeling a lot of intense emotions right now, and that is completely normal. Big Shifts bring up BIG Sh*t!

Ok, that’s all for today. How are you going? Please fill me in here, or shoot me an email at erinlanahanmethod@gmail.com if you’d like to share anything with me 🙂

Love you all!

Turn Your Dreams Into A Reality June 20, 2011

Hey guys. I am finally back to doing some filming and writing again! I have been so busy with training, coaching, packing, cleaning, and finding good homes for all my things, so it feels super good to be connecting with you right now 🙂

Man, what a transitional and TRANSFORMATIONAL process. I am so clear that my health and well-being are the reasons behind why I have the courage, energy, vision, and ability to follow my heart, intuition, and dreams, and I hope you know that works the same for you as well. When you live a FIT Life, nothing you really want is out of your reach.

Living with FIT Consciousness means that we remain aware of how our choices affect our bodies, our thoughts, our relationships, our work, our rest, our play, etc. Living a FIT Life means we are committed to becoming awake and fully present to the inner light and gifts we have within us.

As I take on the responsibility to step into my authentic power and to shine my light as bright as it goes, I hope you are doing the same!

Namaste,

Letting Go Of Attachment: The Key To Optimal Health, Well-Being, and Freedom May 18, 2011

So obviously when one decides to move countries, there is a letting go process that begins to happen. There is also a point at which I have become super aware to all the attachments I have to things, people, places, ideas, patterns, habits, etc, that I wasn’t even aware of!

As someone who is on a path, seeking freedom, abundance, optimal health and well-being, connection, love, and oneness, I am waking up to certain things along the way as a result. As I begin to allow my mind to expand, and I play with new ideas and step outside my comfort zone more and more, I get to find out that I am not so dependent on those “attachments” as I once thought I was. Instead, I am finding that it is really freeing to be able to let go of our attachments and find true freedom within instead.

True freedom comes when we can love who we are, feel connected, have a sense of inner peace and joy, know that we are provided for, that we are safe and secure, abundant, sexy, and living on purpose, no matter where we are, who we are with, and no matter what is going on around us.

When we hang on too tightly to old ideas, things, and limited beliefs, these attachments can ultimately hold us back from living our best life as our best self.

Here’s a video I did for you on this exact topic. I hope you dig it! 🙂

Sending you light, love, and blessings!

Namaste,

Erin

 

Transformation: How To Keep Going When The Going Gets Tough

Hello my dear friends. I know I haven’t been posting as much as I usually do, and it breaks my heart. There is just SO much required of me right now, as my big move to Australia gets closer.

Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about you, and I think about you every day! I will be posting as much as this one woman show possibly can until I leave, and then once I get there…look out! I have all sorts of amazing pieces I want to put together to share with you from over there:)

This video below, is about my experience and perception on how to keep moving through our transformation, even on those days that just feel like we can’t keep going. You know those days?

It’s going to be super important that we all find the inner strength to keep going no matter what, because we have some pretty intense years ahead of us energy wise. It is all good though. The planet, and the collective consciousness is finding a more healthy, more authentic, and more humble, more sustainable place to be, and therefore most of us will find ourselves being confronted with our deepest secrets, wounds, dreams, visions, truths, and we will also have an awareness of the urgency around clearing old energy and patterns and limited thinking, so we can live at a higher consciousness. Ultimately, we are heading toward more freedom, happiness, joy, peace, connection, love, abundance, health and well-being, and Oneness:)

The Universe is really not tolerating anyone who wants to stay and play small anymore. Now is the time to step into our authentic power, and to claim our truth and dreams, because the Universe is in full support mode and it’s going to favor anyone who aligns themselves with their innermost truth. Now is not the time to procrastinate.

These are super exciting times!

Ok, remember, we all have those days, when we wonder if we can ally complete the mission…but WE CAN. Never forget that. This is for you…

I love you,

Erin 😉
