Two unlikely companions are the ego and the soul. One is fueled by blame and judgment while the other is filled with love and compassion. Healing occurs when the two come together and find common ground.
Declare “I Am Letting Go of Judgment” and reflect on these words: “Do not judge yourself harshly. Without mercy for ourselves we cannot love the world.” Buddha
Your soul is a non-judgmental witness that responds to pain and suffering with love and compassion. Look for the positive intention behind a negative behavior and it will help you let go of judgment.
Self-judgment is a lack of compassion for being human. It comes from having certain expectations about yourself that you haven’t fulfilled or recalling past mistakes you haven’t forgiven. Set yourself free with self-acceptance.
All human behavior is either coming from love or it is a cry for love. If you are in the habit of judging yourself or others harshly for behaving badly, try...
Freedom lies beyond the mundane world of self-doubt. It’s a higher state of mind where dreaming the impossible dream, taking inspired risks, and trusting in divine wisdom fuels the dreamer with passion and purpose.
Declare “I Am Letting Go of Doubt” and reflect on this quote from Richard Branson: “I view life as one big adventure. I’m always learning, and finding new things to try and challenges to overcome.”
When life causes you to doubt yourself remember that self-doubt is a strategy of the ego to stop you from taking risks. Its main concern is survival and so you will need to coax your ego along until it gets comfortable with uncertainty.
Self-doubt is a sign that a limiting belief about yourself is operating. You can update your operating system by realizing that doubt is a block to inner wisdom. You can choose to let it go, meditate, ask for divine guidance, and take inspired action. Repeat daily to instill...
Faith in the goodness of life begins where worry ends. This is where you’ll discover an island of inner peace exists inside your imagination. When you trust in the wisdom of uncertainty the world will reflect your integrity.
Declare “I Am Letting Go of Worry” and imagine the best.
Focus on what you do want, rather than worrying about what you don’t want; this allows you to feel good in the present, and create a better future.
Worry drains your mental energy and makes it more difficult to come up with solutions. Let go of worry and you’ll free your mind to come up with creative ideas, overcome challenges, solve problems, and discover new possibilities.
Drink plenty of water. Your mental state improves when you’re hydrated and you’re less likely to worry when you’re in a good mood.
Einstein said: “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”
Practice creative visualization as a...
Love is on the other side of fear. Past fear causes depression, and future fear is called anxiety. Let go of your past and future fears while centered in your heart, and return to love in the present moment.
Declare “I Am Letting Go of Fear” and find your balance.
Fear has a way of putting up walls around your heart. Fear of rejection, abandonment, failure, and judgment can stop you from going for it and living your dreams. Let go of fear and tear down the imaginary barriers to wholehearted living.
FEAR is an acronym for ‘False Expectations Appearing Real.’ Drop your false expectations and replace them with Love. LOVE stands for ‘Living On Vital Energy.’ Fear is only useful when it steers you away from danger and keeps you safe.
The most important journey you’ll ever take is from your head to your heart. The ego can paralyze you with all its fear-based beliefs. Your soul will uplift you with its love-centered wisdom. Make a list...
Trust is at the heart of healthy relationships. When you trust yourself you’ve connected with your intuition. Self-trust aligns you with infinite intelligence and the wisdom to make choices for the highest good of all concerned.
Declare “I Am Trusting Myself” and check with your inner GPS (Go. Proceed. Succeed.) before making a decision.
Trusting yourself requires being vulnerable. There may be a fear of rejection if someone doesn’t agree with the choices you make when you’re tuned into your inner sense of knowing. You were born with a natural ability to trust yourself but fear of getting hurt caused a split between knowing what to do, and doing it. Being vulnerable is a strength, especially when it leads to trusting yourself.
Self-trust takes courage. It opens you up to how others will respond to your words and actions. It’s a sure-fire way to strengthen your character and develop your trust muscle. Rejection can sometimes be the...
Determination creates breakthroughs. It’s the unstoppable drive to keep going even if life knocks you down. When you see challenges through the eye of the tiger, a fierce confidence rises up from deep inside you.
Use the mantra “I Am Determined” and take the next bold step.
Remember that unforgettable theme song from Rocky? It’s Eye of the Tiger . The lyrics are about rising up to the challenge no matter how many times you get knocked down. Play this song anytime you need a shot of determination.
The tiger represents the power to overcome obstacles. Whenever you face an obstacle in your life you can embody the energy of a tiger to get over, around or through whatever appears to be blocking your way. Lack of success in any endeavor is directly related to lack of determination.
The procrastination creed is: Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow? The determination creed is: Why put off until tomorrow what you can do today?...
Intentions connect you with the creative power of the universe. The simple act of getting clear and living in the feeling of already having what you desire, allows it to show up. Setting an intention gets you on course before taking flight.
Declare “I Am Setting Intentions” and then do so.
You may have heard that the road to hell is paved with good intentions; that means without follow-through there may be some regret that causes a hellish kind of mental suffering.
Writing your intentions is a creative note to the universe. It’s the act of getting clear and asking for what you want. Adding images to the written word will enhance your vision and help you get to the feeling.
Health is wealth. Set the intention to start investing in your health today, and you will see the return on your investment for the rest of your life.
Are you doing work that you love? If not, set an intention to love what you do or change what you’re doing to align with this...
When your body, mind and heart are aligned with your spirit, you’re in a natural state of balance. There is great value in creating a balanced life from the inside out. It gives you the power to live your life on your own terms.
Declare “I Am Creating a Balanced Life” and start today.
Do you take good care of your body? Are you developing the strength, flexibility, endurance and energy you need to be fit? If your physical self were to ask you to change one thing, what would it be? Respond with an action plan.
Are you living the life of your dreams? Who would you have to be, and what would you be doing differently to fulfill your biggest dream? Plant those seeds of change in your mind, and nurture them daily.
Are you in a healthy, happy relationship? If not, start by having one with yourself. Be the partner you would like to have by treating yourself with loving kindness and respect at all times.
Do you feel aligned with your spirit? If not, start a...
Chronic stress is like pushing against a gorilla all day in an effort to control it. This habit of resistance turns life into a struggle. You can let go of stress by either accepting, changing or leaving a stressful situation.
Declare “I Am Letting Go of Stress” and come back to your natural state of ease.
Stress is like a thief that sneaks up on you, and robs you of your health, happiness and peace of mind. The good news is, you can stop this thief in its tracks by changing your response to it. Look for the lesson in every challenge and grow from the experience rather than suffer through it.
Stress is useful when it triggers the fight-or-flight response to deal with real danger. The release of cortisol helps your body deal with a life-threatening situation; however, if the stress is chronic, cortisol is no longer beneficial and becomes stored in the body rather than used for survival. Too much cortisol will hurt you rather than help you.
Here are some...
