The problem with Type A personalities and what to do about it

If there is a friend who needs to move, a party to plan, or committee to chair, this person can’t help but raise a hand and say, "I'll do it!"  Meanwhile, the things-to-do list mounts.  But what happens to the life of the person who is everything to everyone?

Believe the impossible

You absolutely have to go there.  You have to believe that miracles can happen, that the outrageous dream you have is possible, that the impossible really does just mean i’m-possible.

Your mantra should be... 

You have to believe with the innocence of a child who knows that all things are possible because they could not fathom anything otherwise.  

Don't be the cynical adult with your vision-- let your imaginative juices out to play and say, what if?  What if you really can do it, be it, have it, know it?  

You deserve every ounce of creative freedom when it comes to the fulfillment of your desires.  

There's a lot to be said for seeing something in the minds eye then allowing it to manifest.  

Athletes do it, they see they're race or game performed at a record pace in order to invite the possibility of winning in.  We have to get in the same practice for our lives.  

The 2nd (sacral) and 6th (third eye) Chakras are key for this.  Creativity is born in the sacral chakra.  This is where you give birth to an exciting idea and allow it to bloom.   At the third eye, start to see and sense what it would feel like for your impossible idea to come to fruition.  

Let creativity meet imagination and watch the once small thought grow into an exciting and grand project.

 Don't let any thing limit the process.  When you allow the impossible the sky is the limit.

 

Your past does not have to be your future

The amazing thing about life is that we always have the opportunity to see a new day.  

What happened yesterday has no bearing on what will happen in the present.

The only thing we bring with us as we travel forward through time our story about who we are or who we were told we were supposed to be.

We often hang on to other’s definition of who we are stemming from childhood or teenage years.

This characterization, while so out dated is familiar and we may wear it like a badge. We cling to what we know even if it does not serve us.

The challenge is to rewrite our story.

What happened in the past is the past. So, who are you now? What new foundation can you lay so that you move forward with security and safety?

Paint where you have come from in a positive light.

Challenges have only made you stronger and more appreciate of what others take for granted.

Highlight good times and moments you have felt all your needs being met. Feel where you want to go and know that you have support. Breathe in a fresh new perspective and move into your future feeling blessed with strength and resilience.

 

Does your soul sing

What are you doing in life if not working, living and breathing your passion? 

MANY today have sacrificed what makes them happy for what they were told they were supposed to do.  So 1950’s!  Today, we live in a time where 9 year olds are CEOs of multimillion dollar companies, information is as close as a key stroke and the sky is the limit when it comes to innovation.

With so much possibility in the world, what are you waiting for? 

Passion denotes a compelling feeling, enthusiasm or desire for something.  Generated in the 2nd Chakra, it is where ideas go through gestation to be delivered into the world. 

Let’s see if we can get you closer to figuring out your passion:

  • What recurring ideas for projects keep coming to you? 
  • What activities or topics really excite you? 
  • What could you not live without? 
  • What is your ideal life? 
  • If money were not an issue, what would you do for a living? 
  • What makes you happy and fulfilled? 
  • What could you do for work that would really be like a hobby? 
  • What talents do you have that you enjoy?

When you are in alignment with what excites you, joy transforms the life you knew into a life full of fulfillment.  Stay focused on purpose and passion and you will find yourself living your way into a renewed life.
