Satori Wisdom - I Am True to Myself

Photo by Carol Gutzeit

The outer world is a reflection of your inner world. When you're being true to your authentic self the world looks bright and beautiful. Being true to your conditioned self dulls that beauty. Be true to your soul and your ego will adapt. 

“To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.”  ~ William Shakespeare

ACTION STEPS

Being true to your soul will lead you to your highest potential. Your soul holds the dreams for your life. When you awaken your dreams your higher self will make good on your intentions.

The ego is who you think you are; your soul is who you really are. Your conditioned self needs your loyalty to be in charge of your life. When you decide to be more loyal to your soul than your ego, your life will take on new meaning.

You'll know that your ego is in control when you're preoccupied with past and future thinking. Your soul guides you to live in the present...

Satori Wisdom - I Am Setting Healthy Boundaries

Uncategorized Oct 07, 2019

Boundaries are less about excluding others and more about including yourself. Healthy relationships thrive on healthy boundaries. Even though spiritually we're all one, physically we need to honor our personal preferences.  

Daring to set boundaries is about having the courage to love ourselves even when we risk disappointing others.”  ~ Brené Brown

ACTION STEPS

Choose to be around people who empower and energize you. Healthy boundaries need to be set with people who bring you down or drain your energy. You will have to learn how to say no to stop giving your power and energy away.   

It's up to the one who sets the boundary to keep it in place. If someone crosses a boundary you may have to reset that boundary in such a way that it won't be crossed again. For example, if you don't like the way someone is treating you and you let them know it will no longer be tolerated, you have to be willing to back that up by walking away if...

Satori Wisdom - I Am Letting My Light Shine

Photo by Carol Gutzeit

Just like the the sun shines its light through the atmosphere and illuminates everything it touches, your spirit can shine through your body and radiate your unique brilliance. When you let your light shine you free your spirit.

“As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence actually liberates others.”

                                                                                                                ~ Marianne Williamson

ACTION STEPS

A free spirit is someone who shines their light at all times, not just when it's convenient. A free spirit is in the flow of life and...

Satori Wisdom - I Am Living On the Edge

There is an edge between the ordinary fear-based world and the extraordinary love-centered world. When you're on the edge considering the call to adventure you can either answer the call or refuse it. The choice is yours.  

“There is perhaps nothing worse than reaching the top of the ladder and discovering that you’re on the wrong wall.” ~ Joseph Campbell

ACTION STEPS

Your ego may refuse the call to adventure because the path appears too difficult and the final destination seems unreachable. If you've always played it safe or done what was expected of you, your calling will require an essential shift in consciousness from fear to love. Trust your soul to guide you on the path of love to fulfill your destiny.

It's helpful to know that refusing the call is a stage of the hero's journey that leads to meeting a mentor. If you were heading out into unknown territory to embark on a great adventure and you knew nothing about where you were going, you might...

Answering the Call to Adventure

"The big question is whether you are going to be able to say a hearty yes to your adventure." ~ Joseph Campbell
 
Do you ever feel like there’s something missing in your life? If you do, you’re not alone. Too much stress, worry, fear, and doubt have a way of causing you to get stuck in patterns and behaviors that prevent you from answering the call to adventure. The truth is, there is a big part of you that is ready to jump at the chance to shine your light more brightly. 
 
Satori is a Zen word that describes the instant awakening that occurs when your body, mind, heart and spirit are in their natural state of balance and you have a glimpse into the true nature of existence. Satori Living is about answering the call to adventure and living an awakened life.
 
I answered the call to adventure when I was 33. It happened while I was running on the beach in Hawaii. I had a Satori experience of feeling one with everything and it totally changed my...

Satori Wisdom - I Am Already Whole and Complete

As above, so below. As a spiritual being you're already whole and complete. It stands to reason that part of your physical journey is to experience heaven on earth by remembering that your natural state is wholeness.

 “Everything you need you already have. You are complete right now, you are a whole, total person, not an apprentice person on the way to someplace else.”   ~ Wayne Dyer

ACTION STEPS

Vibrant health is an aspect of wholeness. When you forget who you really are then parts of who you think you are turn into fragments that become vulnerable to illness and dis-ease. Remember that being whole is your true nature and healing is natural.

Your mental well-being is tied to your belief about wholeness. If you believe that you need something or someone outside of yourself to feel complete, you are mistaken. That is a myth that has been perpetuated by the illusion of lack. You already have everything you need as a spiritual being having a human experience.

Satori Wisdom - I Am Restoring Balance

Photo by Carol Gutzeit

Balance is your natural state. Chronic stress will throw you off balance and affect your overall well-being. Make your health a top priority and you'll discover a variety of ways you can naturally restore balance. 

“To heal illness, begin by restoring balance.”  ~ Caroline Myss

Being out in nature is one of the easiest ways to restore balance, especially near water. Get into an ocean, lake or river and feel yourself being cleansed of stress and all the cortisol that goes with it. 

Stress causes shallow breathing. Make a habit of taking deep, relaxing breaths throughout the day. Sighing is a great way to move from your head to your heart and lower stress. Breathing consciously will help you live in the present moment and feel more balanced.

Relationships can throw you off balance. You may need to set a few healthy boundaries with people who are sources of stress in your life. That means deciding what you will, and will not tolerate,...

Satori Wisdom - I Am the Master of My Health

Everything you think, say, do, and believe is either raising or lowering your life force energy. Your body is greatly influenced by your vibrational state. Set your frequency at the level of faith to become the master of your health.   

“To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.”  ~ Buddha

ACTION STEPS

The cells in your body are responding to your subconscious beliefs. A health challenge can lead you to a limiting belief that is at the root cause. It's helpful to shine a light on your subconscious mind to reveal the misbeliefs that need to be changed. Give more life to your body by believing you deserve vibrant health.

Guilt seeks punishment. If you've stored feelings of guilt in your body they will lower your vibration and negatively...

Satori Wisdom - I Am Worthy of Love

When you remember that love is who you really are you'll realize that your worthiness comes from within. How freely you give love determines how worthy you feel. As you express your true nature your self-worth will be strengthened.

“You can search the entire universe and not find a single being more worthy of love than you.”~ Buddha

ACTION STEPS

The moose symbolizes self-worth. Let it remind you that there is power in knowing who you are. By being true to yourself you'll realize that individuality is a strength. Summon moose energy to remember your inherent worthiness. 

Love your body; it deserves to be well cared for. Pay attention to every symptom and determine what it's trying to tell you. Your body is always trying to come back into balance and it needs your support to get there. No one knows your body better than you do. You are its primary caregiver.

Love your mind; it deserves to be directed, otherwise it will leap from one thing to another like a...
