Seeing The Big Picture

Published August 22, 2013 by Stuff My Brain Thinks

In late November I created a vision board.  I hung it in my living room, and on it I posted pictures that would promote the creation of balance in my life.  I didn’t post anything material.  The only thing that matter to me was my overall health, mentally, physically, and spiritually.  Unbeknownst to me I was creating an intention.  I made my desires known to the universe, and at the same time I didn’t change anything in my life to bring about this change.  I figured I would think about it after the first of the year.  I would allow myself to enjoy the holidays, and that I did.

It was less than a week later that I no longer had the desire to smoke.  It was like I was just over it.  Quitting wasn’t hard because the desire to do it left me somehow.  Then for Christmas I got a tablet from my son and husband.  I have never been much of a reader, but something inside of me was craving knowledge.  I had no idea what to read so I decided to start with the first book that struck me.  I began a journey to find out who I am and why I think and feel the way I do.  Why do I imprison myself with so many addictions.  Just before New Years I decided to quit drinking.  It wasn’t like I thought about it at all I just became enlightened to the fact that it wasn’t fun anymore.  It was actually just the opposite it became almost painful.  So, as you can see my intentions and desires are rapidly coming to fruition over just a short period of time.download

At the beginning of the year I was nearly three hundred pounds.  I knew I needed help, but what I have always done was not working.  I would diet and lose weight, however my staying power was only three months.  I always started out strong but essentially after three months I would go the other way and slowly but surely put the weight back on plus some.  So instead of forcing myself to eat a certain way or workout, which I am not exactly a fan of to begin with I just began to journal all of my thoughts and feelings and read as much as I could on how to transform the mind.  How to detoxify my thoughts, and almost Instantly I began to lose weight.  Something inside of me was choosing healthy foods and inspiring me to walk and move my body more.  Inspiring me to learn more about me.  Over the next few months I went from a size twenty-four to a size sixteen with the greatest ease I have ever experienced.

Now that I am able to see the big picture I can see that I simply allowed the universe to take care of the details by practicing the law of least effort and detaching myself from the outcome.  The universe and/or God , if you will, has created a path of healing for me.  I am so grateful for that and to know that there is a cosmic intelligence especially designed for each of us specifically.

Finally the most amazing aspect of the journey was the introduction to meditation through Oprah and Deepak Chopra’s 21-Day Meditation Challenge.  It couldn’t have come at a better time.  It seemed to not only pull everything together but open up an entire new world for me.  It allowed me to just be.  To embrace the silent witness from within.  It allowed me to recognized the thoughts and feelings that were coming from my ego, and the peace that lives within my consciousness.

Meditation has now become a passion of mine.  It has opened me up to understand all the different aspects for creating balance in my life such as getting the proper amount of sleep, filling my body with the proper nutrition, and providing my mind with only the best quality thoughts.

Spirituality IS Self Awareness

Published August 18, 2013 by Stuff My Brain Thinks

Thoughts and emotions are not who we are, but rather they are constructed from past experiences.  One of the greatest mistakes we, as human beings, make is believing everything we think and feel.  Becoming self-aware is so important to understand why we think and feel the way we do.  I cannot tell you how many times I discovered I had no reason within the present space and time for feeling a certain way.  I still have feelings that seem to have nothing to support them.  I will become irritable, for instance, without knowing why.  This feeling could have come from a dream for all I know, or maybe it was a feeling I was picking up from someone else, I don’t know.  I just know that when I take it to my journal I find that there is absolutely no real reason for me to be irritated.

For the past several months I have been working on becoming more spiritual which essentially means being more self-aware.  Taking this journey of self discovery has been an extreme eye opener for me.  For so many years of my life I followed every thought and emotion as if they were real, as if they actually had merit without even questioning them.  This way of living was causing me so much harm.  Because I allowed my thoughts and emotions control me, most of all of my actions were self harming.  I thought I was a terrible person, and I treated myself as such.  I believed everything I thought and felt.  Becoming in touch with my consciousness was imperative.  It became apparent to me that the thoughts that were coming and going within my mind were actually formed from past experiences and mostly fueled by ego.  It was an Aha moment when I realized that my thoughts were separate from myself.  That I was actually the observer of my thoughts.  The see’er of my world.

When you can easily take the position of your consciousness you can  tap into the true potential of who you are.  You will easily be guided to your passion, which in turn will allow you live the best possible life, tailored specifically for you.  You will find your authentic self and will feel pure comfort from within.  You will feel peace and joy that can only come from within.  It has been an amazing journey thus far, for me.  I can only hope that my story will inspire someone else to take a look within and discover their own field of possibilities.  To find that we are all made up of pure unconditional love, compassion, and empathy.  We all have the ability to make a difference.

Positively Devastated

DSCN0714I am positively devastated that someone has taken my kitten.  The very kitty that followed me to work has been stolen.  This is the second cat that has been taken in the past three months.  I am heart broken.  I don’t want to work or talk to people.  I just want to  be left alone.  Unfortunately I am stuck at work.  I would love to just walk out.

 

21-Day Meditation Challenge

Published August 5, 2013 by Stuff My Brain Thinks

I just finished watching Super Soul Sunday with Deepak Chopra it was Meditation 101.  I am amazed at how I feel when listening to Deepak talk about meditation.  He is passionate about it something I completely understand.  Meditation has changed my life in such a short amount of time.  Imagine being able to lose weight and quit smoking all around the same time without feeling any resistance.  I have to admit I have become somewhat of a meditation pusher, but that is only because I want to share how amazing this is.  I want everyone to feel full.  Full of Joy, gratitute, and possibilities.

Today is the start of Deepak and Oprah’s 21-Day Meditation Challenge.  I strongly suggest that you give it a shot.  Make a committment to fulfill the entire twenty-one days.  I can promise that you will never be the same.
