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.

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.

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...

Satori Wisdom - I Am Worthy of Success

Success dwells in a state of worthiness. You might gain worldly success but without the belief that you are worthy you'll either find a way to sabotage it or you won't enjoy it. Reach for your worthiness, it will lead to lasting success.

“When you get to a place where you understand that love and belonging, your worthiness, is a birthright and not something you have to earn, anything is possible.” ~ Brene Brown

ACTION STEPS

Physical success is knowing that you're worthy of having perfect health. You don't need to buy into the medical model of your health declining with age. Choose your own model of becoming healthier with age. With age comes wisdom, with wisdom comes patience, with patience comes wholeness.  

Mental success means standing in your worthiness as you express your creativity in ways that uplift your soul. It matters less what other people think of your creative expression and more what you think of it.

Emotional success is having enough self-worth to...

Satori Wisdom - I Am Reconnecting

The journey from the head to the heart will transform your life. It reconnects you to a divine state of unconditional love where your innocence is alive and well. When you extend this pure love to others their lives will be transformed.   

Loneliness is proof that your innate search for connection is intact.” ~ Martha Beck

ACTION STEPS

Reconnect with your body by seeing it through the eyes of love. Find out what your body needs to return to its natural state of balance and provide it. Give your body the love and appreciation it deserves for its ability to heal itself with the right support.

Reconnect with unconditional love by giving it to yourself first. Appreciating and accepting who you are without conditions is good practice for loving others unconditionally. You can't give what you don't already have. 

Reconnect with the earth as a source of abundance. It provides everything you need to thrive from oxygen, water, fruits and veggies to herbs, oils and...

Satori Wisdom - I Am On the Right Track

You're on the right track when you're being pulled toward a vision for your life. Even if you're the only one who can see the light at the end of the tunnel you can trust your intuition to keep guiding you in the right direction.

"Unfortunately, some of our poor choices are irreversible, but many are not. Often, we can change course and get back on the right track".  ~ James E. Faust

ACTION STEPS

Being on the right track means allowing your life to unfold. Making things happen or forcing yourself to get ahead may cause an unpleasant derailment. Set a course for where you want to go and the right track will appear.

You're either on a track of love or a track of fear. You'll know if you're on the track of love by the way that you feel. Love brings with it all of your good feelings and emotions to let you know you're on the right track. 

Your train of thought determines the track you're on. Uplifting thoughts set you on a smooth track; degrading thoughts put...

Photo by Christy Gutzeit

The soul is pure love living in a state of joy. You'll know that you're connected with your higher self when you're feeling good. Embody your childlike goodness by staying connected to your soul and it will always guide you to the best course of action.

Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes, that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts.” ~ Paramahansa Yogananda

ACTION STEPS

The voice of your soul is intuition; your body is its physical form; your emotions are its language; your mind is its instrument; and your ego is its companion. Connect with your soul on every level and it will guide you to your highest good.

One way to hear the intuitive voice of your soul is to invite it to speak to you through the written word. You can sit quietly, take several deep breaths to calm your nervous system, and then write your soul a question. Continue journaling whatever comes through as an answer.

Your body is the physical...
