Competition is a Fallacy

One of the things that pops up again and again as we shift out of the old paradigm into the new is that old habit of being competitive. We were brought up to believe that we had to compete with others, that this is the only thing that will make us successful, and this training in competition which feeds the ego leads to a stirring up and expression of pretty much every lower emotion and negative energy you can think of.

Manifestation 101

I was prompted to write this as earlier this week I did a Facebook live broadcast in the group that I run on there about the same subject and it struck me that it would be useful to put this down into a written format for all who like to have things written out for them, especially as manifestation (especially successful manifestation) still seems to be a subject that many struggle with for various reasons.

Be the change you wish to see in the world

As spiritual entrepreneurs and change makers we focus so very much on how we wish to change, heal and reshape the world so that it is a more loving place for us all to live in but often in the process we forget the most important thing, and that is to love ourselves and heal all of the parts of ourselves which are often seeking validation and recognition from others, and this is where we fall down.

It’s all about teamwork!

So, I have been having HUGE epiphanies over the past week, partly thanks to a process I went through as part of an offering from another spiritual business mentor which my team told me that I needed to get involved with which has fully connected me with my wider mission (which is something that I had an inkling of but had been avoiding for reasons I will explain).

Anyone can, only some will...

When you really look at it, there are only really two types of people in this world.

The first camp have all the potential to be, do and have anything that they want but will somehow convince themselves that it's not possible because I can't afford it/I just wasn't built that way/I wasn't born with the right background/my parents told me I'd never amount to anything/other people get all the breaks/I'm not talented enough/life isn't fair (delete as applicable and add in any further excuses you can think of).

When nothing you do seems to be working

We live in such a busy world. Technology crowds us at every moment, there is always something to do, we are fed the message that we have to try hard, to be better, be more, be different, at every turn. There’s always the striving and trying, and forcing, and pushing, and work, work, work, goddamit, so much work. This is what it means to be a valid human being, this is what it means to be successful.

Swimming rather than drowning

One of the things that has become abundantly clear to me recently is how important it is to keep an eye on your personal balance at all times. I woke up yesterday morning after Rachel and the kids had gone to the airport and I had gone back to bed for a bit, and did what I always do - immediately launched myself into a cleaning, tidying and rearranging routine to turn my work space back into my work space from being a bedroom for three weeks, and our bedroom back into a bedroom from being frankly a dumpsite with a makeshift desk in it.
