Bill Gates grew up a little different than most of us. He came from an affluent family, went to leading-edge schools, and knew from the time he was a tot that he was good at math–not just good at math but a genius at math.
In the 7th grade, he took a statewide exam and scored better than anyone in the sate. Not just for 7th graders but 7th-12th graders. He had something special.
Consciousness is a difficult thing to grasp because our human brain has a hard time understanding things outside of our physical senses.
But it’s not impossible to wrap our brain around the abstract idea of consciousness because we’ve learned to trust other things that we don’t fully comprehend so we can use them and benefit from them.

One of the most effective spiritual practices I’ve committed to is keeping a meditation journal. Over the years, it’s become a treasure map from my Soul to me.
You see, Souls speak in the languages of emotions, sensations, and imagery. They often use these languages during meditation to give messages and information.
Your Soul gently communicates with you. Those subtle nudges show up in a variety of ways.

Figuring out what to do with your life is the ultimate challenge we all face. And the question comes at us again and again in every new stage of our life. When you don’t know the answer, it brings up all sorts of resistance—your fear, your frustration, your struggle, your confusion, your doubt. I get it because I’ve been there too!
I’ve always wanted to be one of those people who knew what they wanted out of life.
Meditation is on the rise. Lots of folks are touting the benefits of quieting your mind for a few minutes a day. Lower blood pressure, less, anxiety, a better night’s sleep, a clearer mind, and a calmer attitude are just a few of the benefits of meditation.

I’m going to be upfront with you. I believe meditation is a big piece of spiritual life. I haven’t found a better practice to release my pesky, troubling thoughts so that I can feel my natural state of peace.
But I get it. I live in the real world too. I understand you don’t always have time to meditate. When you do make time, it can be hard to quiet your thoughts.
Follow your bliss. This advice used to really piss me off. I would think to myself, “if I knew how to follow my bliss, don’t you think I’d be doing it.”
I was super frustrated and found myself spinning in circles trying to figure it out, but it’s way easier than I made it.
The secret most folks don’t know–Bliss hides in plain sight. It’s in the most random things and in ordinary places.
Does this ever happen to you? 🙋🏼♀️
You 👀 look around your world 🌎 and see others thriving and wonder why things aren’t working out for you like they are for them.❓❓❓
💰Your business is barely limping along while your colleagues are killing it.

They don’t think they need to prove themselves.
They don’t want to put forth any effort.
They don’t want to earn their way.
