From Ordinary to Extraordinary

 

The energy of possibility is far stronger and more exciting than when we are talking about our issues. Have you ever noticed how you feel when you get stuck in negative thoughts? When you are thinking or talking about your issues you become inward focused, and so does your energy. When fear, doubt or worry become the focal point, it is easy to get sucked into a downward spiral that works to keep you stuck.

Granted, this is not where we want to be, yet we all find ourselves there from time to time. When you recognize that you are stuck, that awareness is 80 % of the making a change. After all, nothing can be changed unless there is recognition of it.

Thinking about what is possible is one way to change the energy and look beyond the issue. Begin this by asking a what if question?

What if everything is working together for my good?

What if all the negative things I think about myself, simply are not true?

What if all my needs are being met? What else might be true?

What if I stopped being afraid of change?

Asking what if, begins to open your thinking to a story that is larger than your own. It helps you to think beyond your own limits and into a world of possibility. You don’t have to have it all figured out to tap into this energy.

You can simply begin by imagining the best story for your life. I urge you to think about the most positive and generous response you can have to your life situation. When it comes to ourselves, we often make the most negative and critical assessment of ourselves and our life, assuming it is the only truth. If you can bypass this first response, and embrace a mindset that is open and receptive to seeing beyond the present moment you will begin to notice and begin to see the small miraculous parts of life that are there for you every day.

I want to leave you with one of my favorite quotes: “When your life is filled with the desire to see holiness in everyday life, something magical happens: ordinary life becomes extraordinary, and the very process of life begins to nourish your soul.”  ~Rabbi Harold Kushner

The more you look for the extraordinary moments in life, the more you will begin to see what has been there all along. Blessing on your journey.

The Beauty of a Sunrise

When you allow your mind to become quiet, you can hear the whispers of your soul. – Sandy Thibault

I have been doing a morning practice for 15 years, and it has become the most valuable thing I have done toward my own personal transformation. Thru this practice I have learned how to quiet my mind, transform my thoughts, and move through life with greater ease and harmony. I will often sit on my deck in the early morning offering gratitude for all of creation.  On a recent to trip to Breezy Point, a place that holds many fun memories, I enjoyed this beautiful sunrise as my son worked on his video blog. I hope you will take some time to watch this short video and use it as a way to start your day!

Changing Your Perspective: A Spiritual Adventure

Perspective is a complicated matter. The opinions we hold and live out through our actions, are the things we value, our individual sense of how we think the world should be, as well as our own sense of what we feel is right and what is wrong. We all have a right to our perspective, however learning the value of challenging that perspective is a lesson in spirituality that helps us grow.

As important as it is to hold on to what we believe or how we think life should be, this perspective can also keep us stuck in old thinking.  Learning to take a step back to discern if what we think and do still serves us, is a life skill. When we are able to challenge our own beliefs, our actions, and how we relate to others, it helps ourselves and improves our relationships.

Being able to take this step back, provides the space needed to see something from another point of view. Looking at ourselves means opening our mind so we are able to see where we might need a perspective shift. It means we might have to admit we were wrong, forgive our self or someone else or take responsibility for our part. Acknowledging these things provides the opportunity to forgive ourselves and move on. When done with kindness and compassion, it can be a valuable tool for personal growth.

I had no idea how deeply my mission trip to Tanzania would influence my life and impact how I saw myself and the world around me. Having been in the rural areas and small villages of Tanzania for over two weeks, our group traveled to the very remote, mountain top village of Idunda.

We were welcomed there with open arms as most of the village met our vehicles on the road and escorted us with song and dance all the way to their village. We stayed two nights and I think the toll of being in a third world country where nothing was the same was wearing on my friend and I. On the third morning we woke up before sunrise and the rest of the village. The view was breath taking as we watched the sun rise over the mountain and yet, there we were complaining that nothing was like home and how anxious we were to leave.  All of a sudden we heard singing coming from the road and soon we saw 5 woman with babies on their backs, carrying 5 gallons of water on their head. We were immediately humbled and I’m sure the look on our faces said it all.

In that moment we could have ignored what we saw or been happy that was not our life, but the moment was too impactful. My friend and I looked at each other and were immediately ashamed of ourselves for complaining about our circumstances. They were after all, carrying extra water for us, given up their cots so we would not have to sleep on the floor and offered us the little food they had.

We were not intentionally ungrateful it was just that our actions did not show it. From that experience I learned that perspective is much more than the ability to change our thoughts but to also work to have our thoughts and actions congruent.  I challenge you to take stock of your thoughts and actions and begin to align what you believe with what you do.
