Satori Wisdom ~ I Am Making Curiosity a Habit

Curiosity is a magical quality you had as a child. Your imagination soared with each new experience, person, place or thing that was introduced into your world. As an adult, making curiosity a habit will help you stay young at heart.

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” ~ Walt Disney

ACTION STEPS

The best thing about making curiosity a habit is that it will become automatic. You won't have to think about being curious because it will be second nature, like when you were a child. Your world will expand each time you're genuinely intrigued by what it has to offer.

Curiosity will take you on a treasure hunt to discover your passion. When you're curious you begin following clues that could lead you to your life purpose, deeper relationships, better health, real success, and true happiness.  

A curious mind is an open mind. It uses new experiences to feed its imagination...

Live Your Dreams

When dreams become frozen in the past only the warmth of your present attention allows them to thaw and flow into a beautiful future. Living your dreams will eventually lead you to manifest your best destiny. 
 
There is no dream too big or challenge to great when you’re committed to finding a way. Dreams usually manifest step-by-step. Sometimes you need to take a leap of faith to overcome fear or self-doubt but most of the time you simply take one step at a time to make gradual progress until your dream comes to fruition. 
 
I recently heard Oprah interview Diana Nyad about being the first person to swim 111 miles from Cuba to Florida, without a shark cage, when she was 64. She had attempted this grueling marathon swim four times before, and finally made it the fifth time.
 
Whenever she doubted that she could finish, her trainer and best friend who was coaching her from the boat told her to find a way. Diana used that mantra to keep going. She...

Satori Wisdom ~ I Am Trusting My Body

Photo by Nichole Gutzeit

Self-trust begins when you realize what your body needs to thrive, and provide it. Our bodies depend on Mother Earth for oxygen, water, food, and shelter. This basic interconnectedness is the source of physical well-being.  

“The body never lies.” ~ Martha Graham

ACTION STEPS

The combination of a furry friend and the great outdoors is a health prescription you can trust to elevate your well-being.The only side effects are a deeper connection with your four-legged companion and Mother Nature. 

Forest Bathing is a practice that supports the immune system. Simply by walking among the trees your health will be enhanced by the wood essential oils being emitted in the air. Strolling through a forest also strengthens all of your senses, including intuition.

Listen to what your body is saying. It's always speaking to you through symptoms and sensations. Your body could be directing you to spend more time outdoors because on this...

Satori Wisdom ~ I Am Transforming My Health

Transformation literally means to go beyond form. If there is a form that your health has taken that you would like to change, know that you have the power to transform it. Start by believing in your body's innate ability to heal itself. 

There is one consolation in being sick; and that is the possibility that you may recover to a better state than you were ever in before.”  ~ Henry David Thoreau

ACTION STEPS

Your body is like a tree. For it to thrive it needs to be grounded, bask in the sunshine, receive nourishment from the soil, absorb plenty of water, and grow towards the light. A healthy tree provides oxygen and shade. You can provide infinite love and light with a healthy body.

Hug a tree. This is one way to stay grounded and improve your overall health and wellbeing. Hugging a tree increases the feel-good hormones oxytocin, dopamine and serotonin, and it's good for the tree.    

You get a new body every seven years. How you care for your...

Satori Wisdom ~ I Am On a Path to Enlightenment

Photo by Carol Gutzeit

The pinecone represents enlightenment. The four pathways to becoming enlightened are as close as your body, mind, heart and spirit. Focus on maintaining a healthy body so you'll have a reliable vehicle for your journey.

True enlightenment is nothing but the nature of one's own self being fully realized. 

~ Dalai Lama

ACTION STEPS

Your body is one pathway to enlightenment. Every message it gives you is a sign that points you in the right direction. If you ignore your body's signals you may end up taking a detour to your soul's destination.

Create a passion project for your body. Decide what you feel passionate about when it comes to health and fitness. Use your passion to fuel a project that will take you on the physical pathway to enlightenment.

Acceptance of your body just the way it is can lead to enlightenment. Your ego is in the habit of finding fault, and its limited perspective will take you in the wrong direction. Love your body and give it the...

Satori Wisdom ~ Time for Reflection

Photo by Carol Gutzeit

Reflection provides insights into your life as you move from one year to the next. Looking back at what you've learned and how you've grown will help you step confidently into a new decade. Remember that hindsight is 20/20. 

“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” ~ Soren Kierkegaard

ACTION STEPS

If you kept a journal or planner in 2019 you can use it to review your year. Start by writing all that you accomplished and then celebrate your successes. You may want to throw yourself a dance party for one. Play your favorite music and dance to the vibration of success.

It's a good idea to get away by yourself for a day or even an hour or two to reflect on the past year. This is a good time to focus on what you learned in 2019, then you can take all that wisdom with you into the new year.

Take a look at your relationships and honor the ones that have been strengthened as well as the ones that have been completed....

Satori Wisdom ~ I Am a Free Spirit

A free spirit lives by their own wishes and is unconstrained by society. If your spirit is waiting to be set free there is no time like the present for a Christmas miracle. Unleash your spirit and let the magic begin.  

“I like to be a free spirit. Some don't like that, but that's the way I am.”  ~ Princess Diana

ACTION STEPS
 
You were born a free spirit. In this world of duality you are both spirit and form. Your physical self has been conditioned by a fear-based society, while your spiritual self dwells in a state of love. Free your spirit and shift from fear to love.

To become more of a free spirit you must march to the beat of your own drum. That means to trust your intuition, be wildly creative, live in the present moment, be adventurous, create a balanced life, find your joy, and live your dreams.  

Free spirits are attracted to one another. They can be seen soaring together in their version of heaven on earth. You can either choose to...

Satori Wisdom ~ I Am Worthy of Abundance

Abundance is a state of grace. Simply by accepting your inherent worthiness you will allow whatever is yours to naturally come to you from the infinite field of potentiality. Be open to receive, and the universe will provide.  

“Strong emotions such as passion and bliss are indications that you're connected to Spirit, or 'inspired,' if you will. When you're inspired, you activate dormant forces, and the abundance you seek in any form comes streaming into your life.” ~ Wayne Dyer

ACTION STEPS

Nature never wonders if it's worthy of abundance. Seeds become flowers, acorns turn into oak trees, and pine cones release seeds to create more pine trees. It's all part of the divine orchestration of life unfolding naturally. Pay attention to Mother Nature's course on abundant living.   

Abundance is a mindset. It causes you to overflow from having what you want and need. This fullness can manifest as work that you love, financial freedom, loving relationships and...

Satori Wisdom ~ I Am Worthy of Divine Inspiration

Photo by Brian Hood

When parts of yourself become frozen in fear there is no forward movement. Thawing occurs when you remember your innate worthiness. Allow divine inspiration to flow through you like a river and it will take you to your best life. 

 “No one was ever great without some portion of divine inspiration.”  ~ Cicero 

ACTION STEPS

Worthiness is your birthright and divine inspiration is yours for the asking. You're like a radio that is always plugged into its source. You simply have to turn the radio on and tune into the right frequency, and then listen. 

Identify the fears that keep you stuck. You can do this by completing the following sentence several times: If I weren't afraid I would . . . . It's helpful to write this out in a journal or notebook to help you get unstuck.

Inspire literally means to breathe in. When you want to receive divine inspiration it's helpful to breathe deeply while you're asking. You can ask for...

Satori Wisdom ~ Find Your Joy

Do you want a joyful life?

The holidays are meant to be a season of joy. If you start to feel like you're not doing enough or that stress, overwhelm, and fatigue are stealing your joy, it's time to stop what you're doing and find your joy.

Joy lives in the light of your soul. When the dark side of the ego comes between you and your soul, it diminishes the light and hides your joy.

A joyful life comes from waking up and remembering that you have unlimited potential. To fulfill your potential it’s helpful to remove the obstacles that are blocking you from hearing the voice of your soul. 

When you change your beliefs, you change your life. Fear-based beliefs will stop you from realizing your full potential more than any outside circumstances ever will. 

What you believe about yourself matters. What you think repeatedly forms your beliefs, and your beliefs create your reality. If you want to change anything about your life, you have to start by changing your false...
