FREE SPIRIT, LOVE AND PASSION!

Sunday, November 13, 2011

FREE SPIRIT, LOVE AND PASSION (pdf) written by Sylvia Marina©

What is the common factor that has projects unfinished, love unexplored and dreams unfulfilled?

If I were given the power to cure just one ill that haunts mankind, writes Todd Puntolillo, I would pass up cancer, AIDS, and overlook heart disease because curing the malady I have in mind might just cure most of the others as a side effect. The cure I would seek would be the cure of criticism. No disease shrivels up children, destroys the family unit, ruins the business place, incapacitates government, nor produces stress like criticism.

The terrible three (criticism, judgment, and complaint) do more to dishearten the spirit and, in general, create misery, pain and sorrow than anything else I have ever encountered, says Todd.

Recently we embarked on a new to me art. I was excited about the prospect of exploring another aspect of the creative spirit. To friends I passed the frivolous comment that I hoped the evening didn’t finish with the dream being bundled into the box marked unfinished products.

It didn’t! I completed the project and now have a beautiful piece of wearable art that I enjoy.
Oh, the joy, smiles, accolades from our friends! And I was ecstatic! I’d finished my project, oh the satisfaction!

In conversation we began to mentally explore items that become unfinished projects and wondered why they had not been completed. Not having time was an excuse, as was not sure how to complete and change of mind, and no longer appropriate was why the project(s) lay dormant and then... Criticism we decided, was why most projects, remain incomplete.
For many criticism had not been expressed just the notion of what others may think or be thinking and not being supported in the dream, are debilitating factors.

We have no control over what others think, or say. Demeaning comments, judgement and criticism debilitates the innocent spirit, cripples ideas, fades and erases dreams and incapacitates human desire.

Probably all of us know the difference between receiving encouragement and being invalidated. Criticism puts the criticiser in a loveless place while the person being criticised feels inadequate loved-less and un-love-able. It’s a place devoid of kindness.

Unappreciated, people endeavour to cope by closing off emotions to the point they begin to operate their lives from a place of disappointment and then to move on in life, unfeeling.

Locked in ‘unfeeling’ people continue to physically live, emotionally freeze and spiritually diminish. Afraid to reach out and explore they stay stuck in the familiar environment of silent and verbal taunts continually longing to feel and know what love and kindness is! And internally yearning and asking, what is freedom?

What does it mean to have a free spirit?

  • To be able to express your initiative without fear of negative response
  • To live your life and life’s purpose with clarity and passion
  • To trust your knowing – understand the invisible and do the impossible

This is what it means to ‘evolve your future’, and truly know the love and joy of living.

RELATIONSHIPS - Non-Verbal Communication, it’s powerful!

Sunday, October 23, 2011

RELATIONSHIPS - Non-Verbal Communication, it’s powerful! (pdf)

Daily, people communicate with much more than words. Research shows that the majority of our communication is non-verbal. Non-verbal communication, or body language, includes the tone of our voice, gestures, facial expressions, eye contact, posture.

Good communication is the foundation of successful relationships, both personally and professionally. The ability to understand and use non-verbal communication is powerful tools that will help you connect with others, express what you really mean, navigate challenging situations, and build better relationships at home and work.

If you are serious about improving your relationship skills observe how many non verbal messages impact your daily interactions.

Louder than words!
Often it is our non-verbal communication that sends louder messages that the spoken word. As we interact with others, we continually give wordless signals. The way we sit, how fast we speak, what we do with our hands, how close we stand, whether our shoulders are angle or direct, depending on cultures eye contact or no eye contact, crossed or uncrossed legs.   The nonverbal signals you send either produce a sense of interest, trust, and desire for connection—or they generate disinterest, distrust, and confusion.

Many of you are aware of my ongoing study in Face Language (physiognomy). The human face is extremely expressive, able to express countless emotions without saying a word. And unlike some forms of nonverbal communication, facial expressions are universal. The facial expressions for happiness, sadness, anger, surprise, fear, and disgust are the same across all cultures.

Too often, we send negative non-verbal signals without even knowing it, and then wonder why the developing connection and trust are lost in a relationship.

Queen of her castle:  Is this you?
Her castle is her domain whether that be the kitchen or the office?
I will give you a true life example:
After a luscious meal at ‘her home’ my partner offered to dry the dishes. Not having been to her home before he put the clean dishes onto a clear patch on the kitchen bench. Soon he was being directed to put the dishes in their allocated space and according to directions he did his best, shortly ‘queen of her kitchen’ began huffing and puffing, clicked her tongue and rearranged.
In aware of her dominant behaviour, I the observer was amused at the non-verbal antics.

Alone later that evening ‘he’ commented he would never ever offer to help in her kitchen again.

Unappreciative, bolshie behaviour! Is this one of the reasons why so many people yearn for close meaningful relationship and either don’t attract or attract and push the other interested party away– in an endeavour to be perfect, to always be ‘right’, through inflexibility, are you pushing people away!

The way you listen, look, move, and react tells the other person whether or not you care. The best way to understand non-verbal communication is to observe your own behaviour before judging another. They may unconsciously be mirroring you.

CHANGE HAPPENS in Theta & Delta

Sunday, October 09, 2011

CHANGE HAPPENS in Theta and Delta (pdf)
written by Sylvia Marina ©

There are times when life throws you an experience you had not planned.

In 1997 following a horrid accident I had a dramatic change of life. My body, was badly fractured and for a period of time I was unable to do for myself. What to do? Firstly, I tried to discover what I could do! Very little!

While my body mended I reviewed my life.  In childhood I had a non specific place where I could connect to my inner self and it was to this place that I instinctively travelled, to the quiet place within, the place where many mysteries of life can be solved, physical hurts healed, clarity where once confusion and misunderstanding reigned ...  the place of solace, healing and positive change.

Deep in the DNA, Deoxyribonucleic acid, of each species on earth is a knowing. A knowing of our physical life purpose, the purpose of every organ and system – the purpose of life for you, the whole being – our DNA our blueprint! Along with this knowledge of survival and endeavours for the continued existence of life i.e. within the reproductive system comes the knowing of what is required for the ongoing survival of not only humans but every species, is the knowing of how to heal our life, how to change, how to be all that we aspire to be.

The importance of every human is contained in the DNA remembering their true structure and function. For cells that are damaged or dis-empowered, we can access the remembering when they were empowered and functioning according to nature and connect them back to the full complement of genetic information that we inherited from our parents, especially the set of chromosomes and the genes we carry, remembering within each gene is a wealth of knowing – its cradled in our magnificent cellular memory.

Cellular memory holds emotional imprints and beliefs and our current  ‘bio and geo’ graphical stresses and contributing factors to disease.  How to access cellular memory? That’s where the quiet place comes in!

The brainwave patterns of Theta and Delta hold the keys to cellular memory. Learning how to connect to the exact brain pattern energy where a negative imprint is stored and then changing the pattern of that energy has led to outstanding success in people’s wellness.

It is not only physical illness where
accessing memories in Theta & Delta is helpful.  People have advanced their career, improve relationships, transformed from low self esteem to increased confidence and more.  It is a simple matter of training the brain.
Once you have trained the brain it becomes a natural progression of life to use the brain wave pattern to focus creative energy for behaviour change, healing, relaxation, meditation.

To understand how each brainwave pattern has a role - healing and permanent change takes place in Theta & Delta.

Brain Pattern

Frequency range   

Activity



State

High Beta

21Hz - 33Hz

Highly alert

Controlled by time & deadlines.

Beta  

14Hz - 21Hz

Alert and focused

Logic, wants power & control.

Alpha  

7Hz - 14Hz

Relaxed but alert

Creative energy 

Theta  

4Hz - 7Hz

Deep Relaxation
(also first stage of sleep)

 

Meditative state for changing behaviours.

Connected to knowledge & purpose.
Creative energy to manifest what our heart yearns for - love, intimacy, belonging, creative expression.

Delta  

0.5Hz - 4Hz

Ideal Meditation state for Healing & Transformation

Deep sleep

Transformation & Healing,
Creative Hypnosis

Connecting to Wisdom


When a certain brainwave state is experienced and practiced over a period of time, the brain will "learn" and it will become easier to self-produce the desired brainwave state at will. Applying a stimulus to the brain will eventually bring the brain's state closer to the desired frequency. We use distinctive audible sound, finely tuned to the specific brain pattern frequencies for the purpose of educating the brain to switch from Beta to a desired state for healing, behavioural change or relaxation. Once you have trained the brain it becomes a natural progression of life to use the brain wave pattern most suited to focus energy, creative energy, behaviour change, relaxation or meditation.

HIDDEN DIMENSIONS & INFLUENCES THAT IMPACTED OUR LIVES

Saturday, September 24, 2011

HIDDEN DIMENSIONS and INFLUENCES THAT IMPACTED OUR LIVES (pdf)
written by Sylvia Marina ©

In the past therapists and good meaning friends have accused people of ‘blocking out’ or god forbid...denial!, of certain events that influenced a life. Influences that you may have no conscious recall of having or being involved in – I suggest many influences were imprinted into our DNA, our genetic history. What if, those influences impacted our lives and led to a shut-down of insulted, injured or emotionally shocked/toxic organs or systems in the body and as if that part of us had been surgically removed another system surrogated for the block-out thus emotionally separating that organ, system or life-form.

In my thirty years of professional healthcare experience, one major reason people are still searching for their life path is that they misinterpret their longings and desires – the truth is, in our unfettered knowing, we each know our life purpose. While we have parts of our self that are still ‘separate’ we keep searching. We yearn to belong...but feel empty and unfulfilled.

Multi-dimensional healthcare researchers have increasing evidence of the effects of delayed trauma on the wellbeing of certain patients. For example; a significant number of severe burns/shock cases have within a five to seven year period of their accident, developed serious illnesses. The burns heal, the shock and scars remain.

When residue remains from emotional shock and/or prolonged trauma, as a pathway forward many put up a brave face, a mask, hoping life and the body will sort itself out. 

Until we remove the masks that hide the multi-dimensional aspects of the self, a part of you will still be unfulfilled, dissatisfied and yearning.

You recognise that you are unfulfilled when you notice you consciously or unconsciously flit in pursuit of one idea to another when, to simply reconcile the past, embrace the present and welcome each tomorrow as a treasured friend that you have known for a very long time; is to then you begin to truly live in a space of sweet inner harmony.

Harmony is what you seek

Working with multi faceted diseases of the body ie cancer, rheumatoid arthritis ...contributing factors include environment, emotional, nutritional, ritual, habit, lifestyle and lifestyle expectations, work/life stress...the list is perhaps endless!

Genetically most people are predisposed to certain diseases and dysfunctions. These lie dormant till a trigger is activated. I mentioned burns victims, the shock of the event and the resulting stress and for many a sudden change of life and lifestyle is the trigger which manifests itself some five to seven years later in serious illness, cancer.

Identifying and defusing stored negative emotions means a trigger has nothing to activate.

 

However, expressing feelings is not something that most of us have ever been taught to do in any skilful way. In the hands of a skilled practitioner it is easy to express feelings and in so doing release triggers for disease. It can help boost feelings of self-worth and enhance relationships at work and home.

 

To fully embrace healthcare is to wholistically embrace the many parts and aspects of our known and unknown. If you are still questioning your reason or life purpose, then there are parts that make up the total of who you are that you have not yet identified and fully embraced.

 

At the age of fourteen, Jenny (not her real name) had a ‘life change’ shock that rocked her world.
Her father whom she adored, suddenly left the family home for another relationship. Along with that relationship was a ready-made family which included a ‘fourteen year old daughter’.
Father was infatuated with his new love and family and dote his time, money and attention to them. Jenny supported her Mum by putting on a brave face!

 

I was presenting a program for cancer patients when I met Jenny, she was nineteen years of age and three months into her medical treatment. After the five day retreat Jenny decided to book a follow-up kinesiology session with me, incorporating the specific specialised technique of theta & delta brain pattern energy.

Jenny had four sessions over three months plus used our specific ‘Keys to Clearing Theta & Delta’ CD twice a day.

Additionally she deleted foods that were likely to have a negative effect on her system.
Personally prepared and ate specific foods to support her immune system.
Gentle exercise, mild sunlight, adequate sleep, music, flower essences.
Ten years later Jenny continues her wellness regime which includes a specialised kinesiology session every six months.

Jenny experienced a ‘life changing’ event that sent her world into a spin and with it she lost her sense of ‘belonging’, the fourteen years of being ‘favourite girl’ was now a closed chapter. She felt she couldn’t share her feeling of dark desolation with her mum because mum was ‘hurting’ too. In Jenny’s words, “she would never trust again”.

Kinesiology showed 71% of her body was ‘separate’. Only 29% wanted to live.
On the statement, I yearn to feel and express the flame of being fully alive?  Only 2% positive energy.  In the fourth session, On the statement, I yearn to feel and express the flame of being fully alive?  68% positive energy. Further sessions her body is clear, her positive energy definite and the ‘separate’ parts – nil.

 

This specific work changed Jenny’s life and the lives of the many who seek positive change.

A FREDDO FROG or a MINTIE

Sunday, September 11, 2011

A FREDDO FROG or a MINTIE (pdf)

What were you doing ten years ago today?

Ten years ago on the morning of September eleven I was preparing to work the day with management at a large West Australia resort, when my partner asked me to watch the world news before venturing to my contract.

Throughout the years my business scope of managing stress, included corporate ‘cultural change’ consultant, health professional, speaker, trainer... this day I had on my organisation ‘cultural change’ hat on.

9/11 – disbelief, anguish, sickening, sadness, sorrow, abuse, destruction.

Research states, people have a natural forgiving spirit in time of natural disaster but in times of human intervention disaster, deliberate or by mistake people are less forgiving.

As I left our home that morning  I decided, my first stop was the local shop to get some Minties and Freddo Frogs. I felt if I was to sit in meetings the moral of management and team leaders may be boosted by a small gesture of goodwill, it also provided us some reality space.
Little did we know that day how close Ansett Australia was to collapse – in the days that followed my life experience and professional background was wishing for more than a Freddo or Mintie to boost the team whose business and income for hundreds, depended on tourism.

That day was the first time that I had ever felt courageous enough to ask management for permission to go to the ‘quiet place’; that place inside of our self, and refocus. They agreed.
Guided by wisdom and grace, together they followed my voice to find their place of serenity, the place where each could be authentic, be composed and effectively lead their people through the inevitable changing scenes of uncertainty. This is now an automatic part of what I do.

I encouraged them to be feeling people, to drop the facade. Rather than running on 95% panic and 5% assured that all would be well. Practical strategies and resilience was needed.

Imagine how powerful you could be by taking charge of your 95%?
In difficult times, in times of crisis or despair to have the skills required to consciously take responsibility for 95% of your responses to life is personal empowerment.

When people change their perspective, change their feelings, they create a whole new beginning.
Accessing the alpha, theta and delta brain pattern energy is the fastest and most effective way to access and reprogram the subconscious mind, which runs 95% of your responses to life.

In times of crisis, the fight and flight beta brainwave pattern is for most people, dominant, the resulting factor is what I term delirious rather that resilient.

Have you noticed how in times of stress, some people panic whilst others are resourceful.

The majority of resourceful people, practice the art and science of effective meditation and through times of crisis or despair know how to access the slower brainwave patterns of alpha, theta and delta, which means the two sides of the brain work together in harmony rather than one hemisphere dominant. With dominance the body goes wobbly, anger and dysfunction become the driving force rather than sense and sensibility.

When the two sides of the brain learn to function as one then our experience of reality is different ~ Sylvia Marina

Your gifts are within you. Learn how to go within and discover all of you.
Don’t wait for a crisis to occur to discover your mode of process.
People who discover and work with their inner gifts, make decisions from their wisdom power and through times of change go forward or begin again with resilience, serenity and grace.

COMMUNICATION IS THE KEY TO ALL RELATIONSHIPS

Saturday, August 20, 2011

COMMUNICATION IS THE KEY TO ALL RELATIONSHIPS pdf

When the talking has died, so has the relationship!

Whether it is intimate, social or business, a relationship does not have to be perfect in order for it to work. However every successful relationship has this ingredient, good communication – by good I mean uncomplicated, clear and simple, easy to follow and easy to contribute to.

Communication is a two way event – otherwise it is a lecture, speech, scolding, instruct, or sermon – not exactly prized energy for establishing or furthering an intimate or esteemed relationship.

Relationships bring immense pleasure and satisfaction where they work and miserable unhappiness when they don’t.

Within the boundaries of my work I am privy to peoples personal and business relationships.
The common complaint is communication – “she talks in riddles and he rarely speaks or when he does he lectures” is a common state.

Ladies, if you wish to have meaningful relationships, in business, social or intimately, stop creating innuendos. Stop hinting or insinuating instead use straight gentle speak this way you are taking steps to creating consequential conversations. For him it brings up pictures of allusion and he is left guessing as to what it is you are requesting or indicating.

Men, don’t lecture, speech, scold, instruct, or sermon your equals, I hear you calling them your ‘better-half’ and if they really are your ‘better-half’ then they deserve gentle kind conversational (two-way) communication, that’s the way to build life-long rewarding relationships.

Compatibility, interests in common and shared values are contributing factors to the flow of conversation and energy.  In your personal life as in business when the talking has died, so has the relationship, sad but true.

Importantly, in all relationships you need to be who you really are, and you allow the other person to be who they are, after all isn’t that what attracted you to each other or did you make the disgusting mistake that as ‘in the moment passionate people’ do when buying an old house…they think they will change and renovate, once they are committed to the purchase/contract.

Communication means that you care enough and are comfortable to talk openly about the things that are important to you. It also means that you respect that the person is different from yourself and that you do not seek to change them.

  ‘The definition of caring is knowing someone's values and expressing your values in terms of theirs. Whenever  
  something supports your values, you take away the rules. When something challenges or threatens your values,
  you set up rules. Nations do it, companies do it and you do it in relationships. Knowing both yours and your  
  partner’s values assists you in mastering the art of communication and building relations.' Dr John Demartini.
 

  Communication involves both speaking honestly and listening attentively. When people have things on their
  mind and let them go without discussing it, it usually manifests itself elsewhere.

Without communication, many hold grudges. Holding a grudge is definitely not productive for any relationship, social, business and certainly does not endear companionship or intimacy.

One important rule about communications is to speak in a respectful manner. Just spewing out whatever is on your mind in any tone of voice is not effective communication. Talking is great but if you don’t do it with respect, it’s pointless.

As with every good conversation there comes a time to say...I’ve been here chatting for a while...surely now it’s your turn to speak and I will listen!

HOW YOU AFFECT OTHERS

Sunday, August 07, 2011

HOW YOU AFFECT OTHERS pdf
Most people rarely give thought to the effect they have or will have on others!

 

Frequently I have the opportunity to have a window seat on an aircraft. Looking from above at remote communities and observing the street patterns and close dwellings of cities means from the smallest to the largest populated areas almost everyone, if not all have close encounters with others every day.

 

In the home, office, worksite and community, in this close encounter existence we unconsciously absorb each other's energy, adopting the moral fibre and temperament of those with whom we share close quarters. Everything we do or say has the potential to affect not only the individuals we live, work, and play with but also those we've just met.

Although we may never know the impact we have or the scope of our influence, accepting and understanding that our attitudes and choices will affect others can help us remember to conduct ourselves with grace.

From the many who seek clarity on how and where they ‘fit in’ to a place in this world, workplace, community or family I am increasingly aware that too many are living in close encounters yet feel ‘isolated’ by the simply element of ‘ignorance’.

People rarely give thought to the effect they have or how their current word or action will have on others. The evolved person will take a few moments to contemplate how their individual mode of being affects the people they spend time with each day – in this we come closer to seeing through the eyes and life of another.

CREATE CHANGE
            Practice gratitude and healthy values.
            Appreciate and gracefully encourage everyone.
            Assist those who are making mistakes.
 
            Eliminate ‘put-downs’.
            If you can’t put your thoughts into kindness – erase the thought.
            Fear and force are ineffective tools to motivate others.

The pace and fullness of modern life can serve to isolate us from each other or make the contact we share more significant and valued.

A smile can change a person’s day.
Small gestures of kindness can prove to those embittered by the world that
goodness still exists.
The art of listening is an incredibly helpful skill to have.
Respect is a value to be modelled.

When we seek always to be friendly, helpful, and responsive, we effortlessly create an atmosphere around ourselves that is both uplifting and inspiring.

Remember, your influence like the shadow of a great tree, extends to places you may never be.
In creating an inner landscape of grace and kindness our silent demeanour becomes the inspiration others seek.

If we behave and interact with others from pretence rather than an inner landscape of warmth, tolerance, grace and kindness it will be reflected in our face, body language, voice and choice of words.

When you develop an landscape of peace and harmony all who enter your presence, leave with a sense of peace and gratitude.

EFFORTLESS MANIFESTING

Sunday, July 24, 2011

EFFORTLESS MANIFESTING pdf

Effortless manifesting will be an awesome experience when people are ready to break free of the pack mentality. There’s an anomaly in the attraction meme. Collective beliefs around how to create results in your life, these mostly limit your creativity!

You don’t have to concentrate on attracting air in order to breathe – if we did we are living under a false premise that in order to have we must first attract

The law of reversed effort states the harder you try, (conscious will-power), to do something, the less chance you have of achieving it.

This week, I was listening to a group of business people sharing the collective beliefs of creating results in their life and the flavour of the conversation was about attracting.
It set me thinking and I thank them for the excessive use of three words ‘law of attraction’.

There is a charming part of the brain that wants the bee to be attracted to the nectar and in so doing the bee plays an important role in pollination. In a human way the brain recognises worth and value and through this the ‘referral system’ happens in business.  

I am an avid self-investor, I spend an inordinate amount of time and money on self development (if I don’t invest in me who will?!).  The best investment you will ever make is in your own personal development and wellness. Through this self investing I’ve become a better mother, better partner, better friend, better teacher, better mentor, better person.

The more you learn how to open the energy pathways in your brain, the more worth and value we add to who we are and all we do.

Too many hold on tightly to lack so that even when they have what they want, they end up wanting more and the cycle continues over and over again, wanting and getting, wanting and getting. Very few people ever stop and realise that it’s a trance that few escape from.

Pain comes from the belief that your source of happiness is somewhere outside of you!

Entangled in this trance; purpose, truth, love and wisdom evade.
 
Whilst the striving... wanting and getting, wanting and getting drives the yearning, the ‘rat in the wheel’ confusion continues and you become dizzy and overwhelmed. Without conscious change this dizziness turns to sadness, hopelessness and for many, addiction.

Stop trying. Instead become the best you.
This week our friend Sahaja sent this message
"You have to love yourself, you have to be very friendly to yourself; because it is only through love that transformation happens." Osho

When you are authentically you, it shines through.

From my book ‘In Love with Life’ page 120. Stop, ask yourself the question,
‘What would love do now?’ Each can create the life they want by developing the power to love ourselves through learning to connect with our spirit energy and wisdom self.

Dear friend, don’t let the best that you have been so far, be the standard for the rest of your life!

‘What would love do now?’
This simple yet powerful question will provide the answer that is truly right for you.

Zen poem, ‘Young man seize every moment of your time, the days fly by, before too long you shall grow old, if you believe me not, see here in the courtyard how the frost glitters white and cold and cruel on the grass that once was green.’

ENLIGHTENMENT Pdf

                                            When the soul is at peace, there is harmony in the heart.
                                   When there is harmony in the heart, there is harmony in the home.
                 When there is harmony in the home, peace will flow to the many parts of our life and beyond.


Being off-balance is the basis of all mental tension
.
If constant anguish and mental tension becomes too much, people go mad.

Most people have learned to temper their lives in such a way that they experience only small degrees of anything. They have learned to control their emotions, and therefore they never really experience life fully. If you are always cutting short the experience of emotions, you do not know yourself either.

Today I watch a mother with her three year old child. The child was expressing frustration and the mother was ignoring. I sometimes did that when I was a young mother too. Finally the child screamed at her mother and asked to go home to bed.  The mother looked at her watch and gasped at the time of day and with an apology to the child, quickly prepared to leave for home.
The mother’s final words were, I guess I need to learn to read her better!

How well do you know, read or understand your own self and emotions? Many people live between two extremes of life, tension and anxiety and the absolute centre of wisdom and harmony which some people call the ‘divine’.  Have you ever noticed creative people, artists, painters, poets? Many of these people move like liquid between two changing worlds, that’s why many artists feel they have no identity. They feel that they are outsiders. In the world of normality many feel they don’t belong because their life experience is the two extremes.

For so much of my life I felt I was an outsider. Not anymore! Through meditation I learnt to touch the centre of my being, my place of harmony and wisdom and in this moment we are no different to the great masters who've walked this earth.  For most though, the difference between the great masters and the now is that the self pride ego part of us says ‘look how good I am’ and in that moment we lose the place of unity.

The empowered person naturally centers their self, even in the face of adversity.
To find your centeredness, begin with meditation

MEDITATION

Meditation goes back many thousands of years, no one really knows how far, allowing connection to nature and the laws of nature and our reunion with our spiritual essence. History and research, supports the practice of meditation. Unlike appeal of prayer which makes requests with the hope of a miracle, the practice of meditation has no instant expectation. The practice of meditation empowers people with the ability to naturally center their self. That centeredness brings an inner harmony that no other discipline provides.

Our simple meditation, switches off the inner chatter, thoughts of negativity and fear of failure.
You find you are thinking creatively, begin to relate and reason with others, also analyze and plan. You will gain a better understanding of yourself, reduce your stress levels and create better balance and harmony between the thinking and emotional sides of your brain.

Begin with a few minutes each morning. Listen to the early morning sounds of the day. Breathe deep and slow
and allow only the sounds of the day to enter your awareness. I’ll give you the next step in our next article.

CHANGE IS NATURAL

Sunday, June 26, 2011
CHANGE IS NATURAL pdf
In a world overflowing with fear, wouldn’t you love to enjoy more? Unless we learn how to cultivate our sense of belonging which respects differences, and honours similarities, we will remain in fear, isolation and blind to the blessings all around us. I mentor, teach and train remarkable groups of people. The common denominator of these resilience champions, both men and women, comes from the fact that each believes they cannot expect the world 'out there' to get any better, unless they, themselves, are willing to do the necessary spadework within their own unknown, interior landscape. The more interconnected the many parts of our lives become, the more centered and self actualising we become. Being more interconnected comes from noticing and receiving the gift of modelling and what it truly means to be present. Each had experienced what happens when we are shown that there is space for us and room for even the neglected self-orphaned parts to breathe and come forward. Mentoring is modelling what it truly means to be present. As we change so do those who we influence (known and unknown). As we adjust and expand so the world changes.  While holidaying in Alaska I spent intervals of time gazing though the lens of our binoculars. Through adjusting and expanding the lens, my way of seeing the world changed. I brought the distant close, and made the impossible possible.  Through the lens of the binoculars I zoomed the mother bear and her cubs close and from a distance had a new awareness of the ‘pay it forward’ system.  For species survival and for this mother and her cubs, it means keeping the earth’s environment healthy, rugged and clean for her and her future generations. She lives in the remnants of the last ice age. An age that by nature and limited human awareness is diminishing! In this moment I had a new sense of responsibility to this mother, her cubs and her future generations. She is already life threatened as her feeding ground diminishes. I returned to the home office and notice life has changed. The weather temperature has dropped, its winter now! The leaves on the deciduous trees have changed colour and are beginning to fall. The oranges that were green are now ripe and luscious for harvest. As I write our roses are in magnificent bloom. Through the harsh heat of Western Australia’s summer, the garden and fruit trees struggled just to stay alive and now they are displaying their full beauty, the memory of summer’s harsh days gone. Change is natural. Do we struggle, whimper, complain through times of change or are we resilient? Every fear-driven act denying our natural connection to one another, and Mother Nature, creates a disturbing ripple effect through the cosmos. So what can we do? The human psyche (like animals in nature) can only take so much disconnection, anxiety, fear before the human spirit plunges into a deep abyss.

I am a dedicated pioneer in the realm of practical spiritual development through the gateway of creative mastery.

It is belief and perception that makes life seem complicated. Using creative mastery, I invite you to join us in understanding the simplicity of life and relationships.
To learn how to turn off the isolation and desolation of inner conflict, unfulfilled or failed relationships, career, business?
To let go of the struggle and by design, turn your life around. Come, at our next seven day Mastery Retreat to learn more. Copyright ©2011 Sylvia Marina
