Thank Goodness for Humility! November 25, 2010

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you are enjoying this day, wherever you may be, whether you are surrounded with loved ones or by yourself. This morning I spent a good few hours with a couple different families, neither one of which are my birth family. In the time I spent with them, I was reminded of the POWER of community. We shared with each other everything we are grateful for, and although I AM SOOOO grateful for so much…what I am most thankful for today is humility. I was reminded of this as I took part in a group consciousness that is aware of what it really means to live with humility.

You see, for me, if I do not live each day humble, in humility, then I am not teachable or in receiving mode.  I can really want something, but until we have the WILLINGNESS to do whatever it takes, we will not achieve the things we desire. I talk to my clients a lot about willingness, but today it hit me. We cannot even get to a point of being willing, until we have humility. Humility is the key that unlocks willingness, and willingness is all the Divine needs to enter our lives and to begin transforming us. I use to live life from a very ego place, and I made many attempts to create a life that felt good to me. I also failed many times. I still try this sometimes, and fail every time, but then the POWER of community helps me remember this main ingredient to living a happy life, which is HUMILITY. Today, I connect with other people who live their lives with humility. I reach out and help someone else. I pray, meditate, and look for reasons to be grateful. Today I GET to feel excited about embracing my reality, whatever it looks like, and appreciating the current moment. Today I am HUMBLY grateful for all that I experience…the good, the bad, and the ugly…because ultimately there is no suffering in pain. There is only suffering in our perception of the pain. What we feel is merely a fact. Suffering only occurs in our judgement of the fact. This keeps me humble, because I know happiness is a choice I must make. Happiness comes from a shift in my perception of the fact, and community reminds me of this daily and helps me shift my perception. I can choose to accept my feelings at face value, allowing me to actually feel them and have the experience of them, and be in the moment… or I can believe the story my ego wants to make up about what I am feeling, and get transported out of the present moment. There is no suffering in the NOW, there is only suffering when we are not living in the NOW. I am humbled by this knowing. I am humbled by the knowing that I cannot remember these simple things without community. Thank Goodness for Humility! Because I am humble, I am open, teachable, connected, and willing to do whatever it takes to live a good life. I will spend the rest of my day writing, enjoying my family, and eating food that loves me back. Here’s to HUMILITY!

What’s Your Bigger Picture Goal? November 7, 2010

Happy Saturday! Today I’ve been a little sleepy, because I was out late last night having FUN! It was well worth feeling a bit low energy today. It has also got me thinking…when we are really connected to what we want to create for our lives, we get pulled into action even on the low energy days. As I sit here in Starbucks at 430pm on a Saturday afternoon…I am realizing, that this would NOT be happening if I was not so tuned in, tapped in, and turned on to my life’s purpose and mission. When we are motivated by passion, we GET to feel inspired no matter what we may feel like each day. I think that’s really cool. I use this tool for everything. Some days, when I may not feel like working out, I tell myself, just do a gentle workout and do it ONE EXERCISE AT A TIME. I make an effort to really tune in to the vibration of what it is I want in the long run, and then I have the luxury of making a choice that is most in alignment with that. I have to admit, working out vs rest on a tired day is not always what I pick. My main concern is choosing what is the best and most supportive of my “bigger picture.” Some days my bigger picture goal is going to require I have more endorphins that day or that I get in a good sweat, and other days it will require less movement, and more internal exploration such as meditation and rest.

Today, my bigger picture requires me to reach out, share where I am at, and to connect with as many people as I can. It requires that I be in humble gratitude for all that I have created thus far, and for all that I will be able to give and receive in my life. So you see, regardless of if we are tired or not, if we are really connected to our bigger picture goals, then we can set our smaller picture goals up in such of a way that they really support the vision we have for our lives.

What is your bigger picture goal today?

Lots of Love,

Erin

 

I KNOW, I TRUST, I GIVE THANKS October 25, 2010

Ahhhh tonight I am just sipping tea, breathing and relaxing to the sounds of the joy calmly moving through my veins, my lungs, and my heart. Every cell in my body is full, and emanating with love, light, and pure gratitude for my life. I am realizing that no matter what challenges I face or what sadness I may tap in to from time to time, I always move through these feelings and get to the other side. Lately I have been missing someone special to me. I find myself thinking about him more than I was just a few short weeks ago. At first, I was alarmed by this, as I have been really staying focused on my own life and on healing my own wounds around this relationship. However, ultimately it doesn’t matter why I am feeling so much for him right now. It doesn’t matter why I miss him so much either, or that I wonder if he thinks about or misses me. No, it doesn’t matter that I cannot seem to let go quite yet. All that matters is that I observe that this IS the way I feel NOW. So I am allowing myself to just be with these feelings. Meanwhile, I continue to create the visions of my heart. I keep on keep’n on, and I do this for me, no one else. I do what I love and love every minute of what I do, and that saves me. I KNOW that I am blessed. I KNOW that more and more is being revealed to me every single day, and I KNOW that even though it may look like things are not going my way with this person, that there is a power greater than me with much bigger and better plans than I could ever plan for myself. So I TRUST and I TRUST and I TRUST, and I keep following the visions of my heart. As a result, I move through the temporary pain, and find more of the truth, the light, and the love that always resides deep within me. I am at peace, even when things do not look the way I think they should or want them to at times. I KNOW that I am enough, I am being taken care of, and that I am exactly where I am supposed to be and the rest is on its way. My dreams are finding me. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for this knowing.

Sweet Dreams,

Erin
