TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “5 Myths that Prevent You From Living Life to Your Fullest Potential”

live-life-to-fullest

Even though our souls are endless, timeless and boundless, we really only get one shot in this body and in this lifetime.

In order to make the most of our time here on earth, we must live to the fullest of our abilities. This requires us to not only get in touch with the purpose of our soul, but to also get in touch with the amazing potential that life offers.

When your soul decided to come down to Earth, it was super excited to experience all that life has to offer. It was excited to taste foods, explore countries, connect with others and was excited to make a difference.

Your soul was even excited to experience the amazing growth and transformation that often happens when your soul comes down to Earth in human form.

It is very easy to forget this and a lot of the time we move through life feeling a victim to our surroundings and trapped in the circumstances that have come our way. We may also feel limited, stuck and separated from our purpose or true calling.

This is also all part of the journey and in many ways, we have to feel this in way in order to understand the full spectrum of our life here on earth.

But if you are ready to make some changes, if you are ready to transform your life and start living it to the fullest, here are 5 myths that you need to shed-

Myth #1: You Need to Know Your Purpose

Many people fall into the trap of getting wrapped up with finding their purpose. They spend weeks, months and even years trying to find what they were put on this earth to do. The real secret of this is that your purpose is not outside of you, it is inside you.

Your purpose flows through you and ultimately is you. Your purpose is to be authentic you, and the more you can start being true to yourself, the more you are going to be able to create and live a life of purpose.

When you start acting from a place of authenticity, you will also naturally find yourself drawn to things that you feel passionate about and things that you love to do. By connecting with yourself first and being true to yourself, everything else just falls into place.

Myth #2: You Need to Be Super Positive All the Time 

While being positive is a great mindset to have, it is a myth that you have to be this way all the time.

Seemingly negative emotions are natural, normal and a part of life. Just because you think negatively from time to time doesn’t mean you are bad or any less “spiritual”.

The trick is to not become attached to your thoughts, and this goes for both positive and negative thinking.

When you become attached to your thoughts and hold onto them, that is when they can become destructive. But simply having negative thoughts or feeling anger, rage, frustration and so on, is normal and healthy and should not be squashed.

It is more important that you express how you truly feel and learn how to cope with all types of emotions. This is far more beneficial than squashing negative thinking or trying to fake positive.

Having a positive mindset is definitely a great and productive way to move through life, but this doesn’t mean that you need to ignore the negative.

Myth #3: You Shouldn’t Want Money or Material Wealth 

On the spiritual journey it is common to feel that you shouldn’t want for things, especially material things or money.

The fact of the matter is, in order to get by on this planet we need money.

Money gives us a feeling of security and comfort and is necessary for our physical health and well being. Money also allows us to buy experiences and material items that can aid in our development or even bring pleasure.

Nothing is wrong with opening yourself to abundance and letting the Universe and others know what you need. Nothing is wrong with stating your worth and asking to be paid for your time or services.

The trick with this is learning how to develop a healthy relationship with money. Obsessing about money or being greedy is definitely not the vibration you want to live from, but opening yourself to abundance and knowing your worth is definitely going to help you.

Myth #4: You are Being Punished for your Bad Karma

Some people believe that while your soul is on Earth it has to be “punished” for all the bad or wrong things that occurred in previous lifetimes. Karma is often viewed as being the measure of the good and bad things your soul has done and how you are going to be treated because of it.

This may go against some people’s beliefs, but I do not believe that you are punished for your bad karma by having negative or bad things happen to you. I do not even believe that you inherit “bad” karma. We all have karma, but this karma is neither good or bad, it just is.

Karma is simply the cause and effect energy that emanates from everything that you do and everything that you have done from previous lifetimes. Your karma does not bring “bad” or “unlucky” experiences into your life, instead your karma simply highlights the lessons and the journey that your soul needs to learn.

The Universe does not punish you, even though it can feel this way sometimes! The Universe simply sends you lessons and experiences that help you to grow for your highest good and the highest good of others.

Myth #5: You are Not a Limitless Being

If you were to view life through your five senses, you would notice limits. You would see that you are limited by your physical body, you are limited by the capacity of your mind and you are limited as to how you can move and what you can do.

While there are definitely are limits in the human world, in the spirit world there are no limits, at least there are no limits in the way that we understand them. And living inside all of us is a thriving and healthy spirit.

While you may not be able to fly or hold your breath underwater for a long period of time without assistance, there is a force inside of you that is limitless. And by remembering this, it can help you to achieve all of your hopes, goals, dreams and wishes.

When you view life from your hidden senses, from your sixth sense, you will start to see that life is truly limitless and there is nothing you can’t achieve, you may need some help from others, or even assistance from technology, but there is nothing you can’t do.

When you understand that you have a limitless force inside of you, you can use it to help you navigate through this dimension.

You may not be able to exert all of this limitless force within you in your waking life, but simply knowing it is there will allow you to move mountains in whatever direction you feel called to.

ELIZABETH RENTER: “7 Ways To Better Listen To Your Intuition”

dreamcatchers.jpg

Have you ever been in a situation where your “gut feeling” told you one thing, but your rational mind said another?  If you went with your brain rather than your intuition, there’s a good chance you ended up regretting your decision.  Your intuition is the subconscious leader that many people fail to give proper respect to.  But learning to listen to this internal compass could help you make better decisions and live a more fulfilling life.

It’s unconscious reasoning, the guidance that compels you to turn left when all signs may be pointing right.  It’s often the whisper inside that can lead you to the best results possible, if you will just learn to let go and give it a chance.  Intuition is commonly associated with New Age mysticism or a metaphysical way of thinking, but it doesn’t have to be so.  Our intuition was here long before anyone even gave a word to it, and it will be here long after other fad words expire.

Warm up to the idea that you don’t have to control everything.  Life is going to happen whether you overthink it or not.  Relax.”

Whether it’s deciding which job to take, which direction to turn when you’re lost, or how to handle a conflict in your family, intuition sometimes knows better than the rational mind.  The problem is that many of us have buried that little voice so deeply within, we have a hard time hearing or feeling where it is guiding us.

The good news is that your intuition is still there, you merely have to learn to hear it again.

To better listen to your intuition, try:

1.  Meditation:  Spend time in silence, simply listening.

2.  Commune with nature:  Aim to get at least sometime outside every single day.

3.  Creativity:  Tap into your internal artist by drawing, writing, painting, or making music.

4.  Learn to listen:  In general, listen to friends, families, silence, and yourself.

5.  Be body conscious:  Learn to appreciate the little signs and signals from your body, when it tells you it’s tired, joyful, in need of love, or getting sick.

6.  Let go:  Warm up to the idea that you don’t have to control everything.  Life is going to happen whether you overthink it or not.  Relax.

7.  Stay positive:  Being in a good mood boosts participant’s abilities to make intuitive calls in a word game.  So smile!

Working on becoming more intuitive requires you to adopt healthier habits and a healthier mindset.  These are things that are good for your mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing, no matter your end goal.  And if cultivated regularly, they could lend themselves to better decision making and more happiness overall.

PAUL LENDA & CHRISTIE SHELDON: “16 Ways to Bring Positive Energy Into Your Life”

9d69c2541dcc5a3ec6ab740b3cd65f26.jpg

You’ve felt it.  You’re in a group of people, and somebody walks in with a black cloud hanging over their head.  Their energy repels you, and you may find your own mood affected by it.  So how can you NOT be one of those people?  We all have bad days, but with a few simple tricks, you can avoid letting that black cloud grow and hover over you.

1.  Do not dwell on the negatives.

Stuff happens.  It’s how you respond that matters.  If you choose to be victimized by what happens, your negative energy will gain momentum.  Instead:

 —Stop thinking about it if there’s nothing you can do to improve it  (if a thought comes up about that situation, do not allow it to continue — force yourself to think about something else).

 —Do not talk about it anymore than you absolutely have to.  Don’t give it energy!

 —Find the blessings and lessons in the situation.  This may take some time, but if you stay busy looking for them, you won’t dwell on how something negatively impacted you.

2.  Do not speak of your problems, diseases, illnesses or worries.

The more energy you give what is wrong, the more it persists.  Yes, we all need to vent once in a while but if you vent, or even when you’re just thinking about what’s wrong, here are some rules:

 —Don’t think or say: “I’m so sick, I feel like I’ve been run over by a truck!  I don’t know how I’m going to get through the week!”  Do think or say: “I caught some bug but I’m taking good care of myself and I’m feeling better every day!”

 —Don’t think or say: “This job is terrible! My boss is a jerk and nobody appreciates me!”  Do think or say: “I’m looking for a better job and meantime I’m trying to learn as much as I can so I benefit. In fact, my boss is the perfect example of how not to treat employees!”

3.  Love and accept yourself.  As you are.  NOW.

It’s easy to beat yourself up about what’s wrong, but how much energy do you give to your positive qualities?  Do that more.  For every negative comment you make about yourself, give yourself FIVE compliments.

4.  Let go of the past.

You can’t undo anything.  It’s done.  Forgive others, forgive yourself… learn from your mistakes, learn from others’ mistakes, remember that NO unkind or thoughtless action ever comes from love but from a place of deep inner pain  (you can be compassionate to that pain without condoning the acting out of the pain) and release the energetic burden you carry: grudges, resentments, pain, hurt, disappointments, sadness, anger, guilt… let it all go.

5.  Don’t give away your power or your happiness.

Remember that when you criticize, judge or blame others, you are choosing to focus on what they’re doing wrong or what’s wrong with them — and you give these people the power to control your mood and state of mind.  Ask yourself why somebody’s behavior irritates you so much that you allow yourself to get upset about it.  Why let others’ behavior affect your mood?  Why give them the power to control your happiness?  Instead of criticizing, judging or blaming, find something you can compliment them on.

6.  Do not say yes when you mean no.

Honor your needs, priorities, time and energy!  You’ll resent it.  Save your precious time and energy for things that are meaningful to you, or in instances where others ask you to do something, make sure that it brings you satisfaction and joy.  Otherwise, politely decline.

7.  Laugh!  Smile! 

Surround yourself with upbeat people who make you laugh.

8.  Be grateful.

Appreciate the many blessings, but also appreciate the struggles and frustrations.  How have you become enriched because of them?

9.  Don’t worry.

Use your imagination to visualize what can go right, instead of what can go wrong.  Train yourself to visualize the best-case scenario.  Be solution-oriented, not problem-oriented.  Think only about the ideal situation, not the current problematic situation.

10.  Run it off.

Exercise physically removes you from your problems, and it also removes you mentally.  If you’re worried about something, you need to give your brain a chance to process things.  Exercise will flood your system with feel-good endorphins, release stress and in the middle of a long bike ride, walk or swim… or in the middle of the climbing wall, you may suddenly have an epiphany.  Or, at least for a while, you will be fully present and not worried about the future.

11.  Be present.

Speaking of being present, be interested in what you’re doing, no matter how “boring” or “mundane” it may be — quotes intended, because any activity can be made as interesting as you are willing to make it.  This will keep you in the moment and will keep your mind off your troubles and worries.

You have the power to control your mood.  Use these positive-energy-boosting exercises every single day.  Before long, you will be the high-vibrating ray of sunshine that brightens everyone’s mood!  We all have the ability to look to our mind for ways to not only dissolve that sadness, but to cultivate such a positive state of mind that we won’t fall easily back into melancholia.

There are many ways in which we can cultivate positive energy five ways to transform your mindset from darkness into light, sadness into happiness.  May they also help lift up your soul.

12.  Appreciation

When you appreciate someone, you’re tuned into their positive qualities and express your empathy and gratitude for them.  It’s a simple way to refresh yourself and establish heartfelt connections with ourselves and others.

With so much beauty all around us, it is easy to show our appreciation to others, and nature, on a daily basis.  Try appreciating the simple things you might take for granted, for example, a deep relaxing breath of crisp outdoor air or the pleasurable radiant warmth of the sun at noon.  Or the thing we should be the most grateful for  (but the one we often forget) — that we’re alive and so fortunate to experience each and every day.

As you do this, try to focus completely on the good this experience offers you and acknowledge that you — and only you have created it — no matter how it came to you.  Regardless of your condition or circumstances, there will always be something that you can find to appreciate.

13.  Forgiveness

Forgiveness is the moment-to-moment experience of peace and understanding that occurs when the suffering of someone who feels injured has their suffering reduced as they transform the grievance that initiated that suffering.  By embracing the feeling of forgiveness as something that can help us, we accept it as an aspect of acceptance, love, peace, and truth instead of experiencing hatred, negativity, and falsehood — all of which are faces of resentment.  By being forgiving, we acknowledge that people make mistakes and release the emotional burden that holding a grudge has on us.

14.  Selflessness

When we are selfless, we shift our focus onto the needs of others, rather than keeping it on ourselves.  It’s the practice of being unselfish and minimizing the gratification of the ego’s wants and desires.

In order to make the life-redefining shift from selfishness to selflessness, go and focus on the well-being of others.  This can be done in countless ways.  You can clean up your life and surrender a fully healed body, heart, mind and soul to others when entering a relationship.

You can also be ready to share any amount of time needed by others whenever they need it  (don’t allow yourself to be used, however).  Be happy with your life and with whatever you are offered by others.  Whenever you are sure to give your very best, you are receiving exactly what ever you need for your greatest possible benefit.

15.  Wonder

Experiences of wonder can lead us to a sense of transcendence and realization of higher states of consciousness.  From a mystical perspective, it relates to affirmation, as wonder openings reveal the infinite and the source of all that is, which operates as gateways to uniting experiences.

Buddhism muses that distinctions limited to relative or empirical reality are just an illusion; resulting in the continuation of anguish, pain and frustration because we become alienated from experiencing reality through the eyes of a child where everything was wondrous.  In short, wonder leads us tasting a unified and infinite existence that enriches our life experience.

16. Nostalgia

Nostalgia is a yearning for a return to some past period or seemingly irrecoverable condition that’s seen in a positive light.

Studies have found that people who have a heightened level of nostalgia have higher self-esteem and are less prone to depression.  Thinking of good memories for just 15 or 20 minutes a day can make you more cheerful than you were the week before, and happier than if you think of your current life.  Nostalgia is a very potent mood booster, so if you seem to be in a bit of a funk, think about good memories of times past and you will experience higher self-esteem and feel more positive about friendships and close relationships.

JERRY SERGEANT: “10 Ways To Live Your Greatest Life”

jerry-sergeant

Every human being on this planet is incredible and has the potential to live their greatest life possible. With that being the case, why isn’t everybody happy, successful and in beautifully loving relationships? Why do people work a job they do not like? What makes human beings live a mechanical, systematic lifestyle where they suffer, go through school, possibly university, follow a career, get a mortgage, get married, retire and live their lives out struggling until their time comes to depart this beautiful big blue planet? And, not forgetting, most people live in fear of death, dreading the day when all is lost.

It seems to me that humanity, on the most part is surviving not living. Why is this So, when there really is an abundant world awaiting us?

The issue is that most of us live in groups or communities. We have become dependent on so-called governments and others is our groups, and we have handed our power over to others, thinking and believing that we need the help or guidance to survive here on Earth.

We are living in fear. The fear of leaving the known and stepping into the unknown. We have cornered ourselves. We have a desire to be psychologically secure.

Over centuries we have become conditioned. We fear leaving the group or whatever we are a part of because we believe that if we do we may not survive. Or we will be alone. When it fact alone means to be ‘All One’. Being alone will bring you closer to the whole than you have ever been before, but our thoughts, which are based on fear keep us stagnant.

It’s time to stop believing and start knowing. You see, all beliefs are based on thought and all thought is based on fear. This is a notion that totally defies everything you have ever been taught so it will take serious self-reflection to see the underlying truth in what is.

If you want to live your greatest life and realise your full potential you must take full responsibility for you, and not depend on anyone or anything for your survival.

Here are 10 ways to realise your full potential.

10 Ways to Live Your Greatest Life

Greatest Life Tip #1

Do not give your power over to anyone

Nobody in this world has any authority over you. Including any member of society, government, friend, partner, mother, father, son, daughter, school teacher, policeman or woman – Absolutely no one. You are a human being and you’re free. Meditate on this fact. I must point out that this is not an idea. It is a fact, it’s true. Know that you have the power to be or do anything and no one has the power to influence you unless you let them.

Greatest Life Tip #2

Create space in your life

You can do this by creating space in your mind. You, like most people will think too much. You must break that pattern of thought by meditating. Meditating every day will enable your awareness to grow. This awareness will give you space and from that space, clarity, focus and energy will flow.

Greatest Life Tip #3

Leave the crowd. Be different

As long as you are trying to blend in with society you will become a sheep, moving with the tide, getting nowhere very fast and helping other people live their dreams instead of creating your own.

Greatest Life Tip #4

Face your fears

To leave the crowd you must face your fears and venture into unknown territory. This will crush you or make you. The further you move towards your fears the smaller they will get and eventually you will realise that your fears are an illusion, created by thought, in your mind. Facing your fears is easy, all you have to do is follow your life compass – your heart. It will lead you in the direction of your dreams, and always, without a shadow of a doubt, straight through your fears.

Greatest Life Tip #5 

Be fit and healthy

Eat natural foods, exercise daily, drink at least 3 litres of filtered water per day, juice every morning, go to bed early and try drinking a cup or urine every morning. Trust me, it’s the only liquid on the planet that contains all the information on your own body. It contains all the goodness. I will write another article specifically on this topic soon. It is a real game changer in terms of your health.

Greatest Life Tip #6 

Surround yourself in a bubble of positivity and tranquillity

Stay away from the naysayers and be around people that inspire you. After all, you become like the company you keep. So keep World Class Company.

Greatest Life Tip #7 

Guard your dreams

Don’t tell everyone what you are going to achieve. They will try and shoot you down, even those closest to you. Inspire through action, not idle chatter. Get the job done. Actions speak louder than words.

Greatest Life Tip #8 

Stay away from secondary activity

Keep your eye on your dream and learn to say no. Saying no is mission-critical as the closer you get to your desired outcome, the more offers you will get to side track you. Saying no will keep the train from being derailed. It’s so important to keep a laser focus.

Greatest Life Tip #9 

Go all out and never quit

The bigger your dreams the bigger the challenges. So learn to turn all of your obstacles into opportunities for growth. Be grateful to everything that is thrown at you because I promise you, once you look back along your journey, from the pinnacle of success, you will see that everything was designed perfectly, by a mind that knew more than you or I. The journey is the most rewarding part because it creates you, the human being you become once you are where you know you can be.

Greatest Life Tip #10

Know you are destined to reach your full potential

Know you are special and were born with a purpose. Follow these steps and you will realise the power you have and the magic will spill into your life.
