Satori Wisdom ~ I Am Mastering My Emotions

Photo by Carol Gutzeit

Emotions are rooted in your body as a way to receive messages from your soul. Thoughts aligned with love generate pleasant emotions; fearful thoughts have the opposite effect. Become the master of your emotions to live in harmony. 

“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

Life is like a block of clay. You get to mold it into form using your beliefs, thoughts, words, and actions. Love is creation. Fear is distraction. If you experience reality from a fear-based perspective you'll be distracted from living your best life. Experiencing reality from a heart-centered perspective inspires you to create a life of joy and fulfillment. 

Emotions are neither good or bad; they're useful. All of your positive,...

Satori Wisdom ~ I Am Fiercely Committed

Just like a mama bear is fiercely committed to her cubs, you are being called to fiercely commit to what you hold sacred. Get clear on your highest values and take a stand for what matters to you.

“I do not believe in using women in combat, because females are too fierce.” ~ Margaret Mead

ACTION STEPS 

Use your fierce feminine and masculine power to speak your truth. It takes courage to stand up for your beliefs and commit to being a leader. Let your inner fierceness be a force for good in the world. 

Fierceness builds strength. Just like lifting weights builds strong muscles, lifting people up develops inner strength. Commit to uplifting and inspiring others and be aware of how strong you feel.

Be fiercely committed to your health. Boost your immune system, eat organic, exercise daily, get up and move every hour, breathe deeply, get grounded, spend time in nature, bask in the sunshine, reduce stress, and get rid of toxins from your body, mind, and...

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 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 Creating Happiness

Happiness is a choice. It cannot be bought or sold, pursued or found because it’s a state of mind. Unhappiness can be transformed by loving yourself enough to break through the blocks that are preventing your well-being.

ACTION STEPS

Declare “I Am Creating Happiness” and reflect on these words by Dale Carnegie: “Happiness doesn’t depend on any external conditions, it is governed by our mental attitude.”

The way you see your body can either strengthen or weaken your happiness. If you focus on what you don’t like about your body you will see more of that and feel sad. Focus on what you love and appreciate to dissolve the block of judgment.

Do you earn a living doing what you love or does it bring you down? Notice how you feel while you’re working to determine if it’s blocking or enhancing your happiness. You can remove the block to feeling good by either changing your career or having a different view of it. 

In relationships...

Satori Wisdom - I Am Changing Limiting Beliefs

Beliefs are like puzzle pieces that interlock to form your identity. Since nature abhors a vacuum, if you want to change a limiting belief you can remove a detrimental piece, and replace it with one that’s useful.

“The outer conditions of a person’s life will always be found to reflect their inner beliefs.” ~ James Allen

 ACTIONS STEPS

The first step to changing a belief is to identify it. The way to recognize that a limiting belief is operating in your life is to detect patterns that are driving your behavior. If you’re stuck on repeat and want to change a behavior, decide what kind of a belief you would have to have to keep attracting the same kind of experiences over and over again.

The second step is to choose a new belief. You can replace a limiting belief with one that is empowering by flipping it to its opposite. For example: ‘I’m not good enough’ can be changed to ‘I am good enough.’  

The third step is to...

Satori Wisdom - I Am Ready for Change

From the season of hibernation to the first day of spring, change happens naturally. It’s a constant reminder that anything can be transformed with the light of faith, the power of love, and a desire for growth.

ACTION STEPS

Declare “I Am Ready for Change” and reflect on this quote by Viktor Frankl: “When we are no longer able to change a situation - we are challenged to change ourselves.” 

You can change anything with the power of love. When you love the change you wish to see, it opens the door to transformation.  

Your body changes every day due to do constant cell die-off and regeneration.  If you want healthier cells in the future, what could you do differently now? Use any current symptoms you may have as a catalyst for change. 

Contemplate the Serenity Prayer: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.”

Make a list of the...

Satori Wisdom - I Am Letting Go of Judgment

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.

ACTION STEPS

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...

Satori Wisdom - I Am Letting Go of Fear

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.

ACTION STEPS

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...

Satori Wisdom - I Am Trusting Myself

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.

ACTION STEPS

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...
