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...

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 Connected to My Soul

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...

Satori Wisdom - I Am Getting Out of My Comfort Zone

The ego builds a comfort zone to feel safe and survive. When you trust your soul to be your guide you'll feel safe to go beyond your comfort zone and thrive. This is how you reach your full potential.

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” ~ Neale Donald Walsch

ACTION STEPS

Your body is a physical manifestation of your comfort zone, and it's doing its best to help you survive. If you're experiencing any discomfort in your body this is one way your soul is urging you to make some changes. To get out of this comfort zone it's useful to determine the emotional issues beneath the physical symptoms and clear them out of your body to support healing.

Living in a comfort zone is the realm of status quo where no real growth can occur. If you're not growing . . . you're dying. Choose to grow, then trust your intuition to lead the way and the Universe will support every step you take towards expansion.

The wisdom of getting out of your comfort zone comes from the...

Satori Wisdom - I Am Leaving the Past Behind

Photo by Carol Gutzeit

The past may leave a trail behind you but it doesn't have the power to create a path in front of you. Although it causes a ripple effect made of life experiences, they have all been for your soul's highest good and evolution. Keep moving forward in the direction of enlightenment.

“Learn from the past, set vivid, detailed goals for the future, and live in the only moment of time over which you have any control: now.”  ~ Denis Waitley

ACTION STEPS

However you choose to move your body throughout the day, set an intention that with each forward step you take you are leaving the past behind and fully entering the present moment. This will help your body let go of any physical discomfort it may be carrying related to the past.

When others judge you, or you judge yourself, for what you did in the past it's helpful to remember that you're not defined by your past experiences; it's who you become as a result of what you've been through that...

Satori Wisdom - I Am Following My North Star

When following your North Star it's best to look forward to keep moving onward and upward. Looking backward will keep you stuck in a past that has already been traveled. Trust the wisdom of the Universe to help you navigate the journey that lies ahead. 

“The way to find your own North Star is not to think or feel your way forward but to dissolve the thoughts and feeling that make you miserable. You don't have to learn your destiny—you already know it; you just have to unlearn the thoughts that blind you to what you know.”

                                                                                                                             ...

Satori Wisdom - I Am Validating Myself

The order of self-validation is from spirit to soul; soul to ego; ego to body; and body to life. As you connect with these essential parts of yourself you will no longer be fooled by the illusion that you need external validation to feel good. 

 “When we consistently suppress and distrust our intuitive knowingness, looking instead for authority, validation, and approval from others, we give our personal power away.” 

                                                                                                                        ~ Shakti Gawain

Satori Wisdom - I Am Answering the Call

Everyone has a calling. The call may be loud and clear or quiet and subtle. When you answer the call your soul will move you the direction of your greatest dream to fulfill your mission on earth.

"It's about listening to yourself, going inside, and being still. Go into the forest or go into the sea; be in a place where you can hear it. You'll be told by your own subconscious. You have it in you, and it's always been there, you've just put it someplace deep inside."

                                                                                            ~ Laird Hamilton, Big Wave Surfer

ACTION STEPS

Life is meant to be a journey to express your full potential. The way that you fulfill that expression is from answering the call to follow your...

Satori Wisdom - I Am Believing in Myself

To believe in yourself you must live with integrity. This means that the way you show up in the world is in alignment with your soul. There’s an immediate loss of self-doubt when you unleash this superpower.

 

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful 

beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.”

                                                                                                                 ~ Marianne Williamson
