Integrity. Authenticity. Transparency. Truth.

Is all the spiritual talk about living in your truth, following your integrity, being authentic, and transparent confusing you? Does it feel like another thing that you have to get right when in reality, you’re just trying to get through the day without losing your shit?

I get it. This well-meaning advice can make your head spin. Even worse, it can make you give up on your spiritual journey because it feels too hard to figure out the “right way.”

It’s time to give yourself a break because Spirit is not demanding some lofty standard from you or judging how you’re doing.

Should I Stay or Should I Go?

It’s so easy to fall into the trap of wanting to make the perfect decision, but often this is a stalling tactic not to decide at all for fear of getting it wrong.

The split energy of indecisiveness feels uncomfortable because your energy is meant to flow.

The next time you must make a decision ask yourself, “What do I want?” And then permit that desire to be enough reason to go in that direction.

There is NO Shame in Losing Your Balance

I know, I’ve fallen into the old habit of worry more than I’d like over the last year. Maybe you have too? It’s okay. It happens to all of us (especially in the current energy of the pandemic.)

So, when life feels overwhelming or out of control, it’s best to get back to basics to feel safe in the here and now. It’s an immense help to quiet our outer world so that we can tune to the natural calm of our inner world.

The Spiritual Path is Unique for Everyone

Your version of spirituality doesn’t have to look like my version. You have the freedom to connect, commune, and enjoy your Soul in any way you choose.

This may look like meditation, yoga, baying at the moon, painting a mural, dancing in the street, banging on the drums, shooting hoops, cooking, walking in nature, and much more. The options are endless.

You’ll know how you like to flow, express, and be in harmony with your Soul by the way it feels.

Here & Now

Humans love to remember the past and dream about the future, but the only time that truly exists is the Here and Now. This beautiful present moment is where all possibilities live at once.

When you tap into the fullness of present moment awareness, you can access anything you want to know, be, do, or have. Everything is here waiting for you to recognize that it already exists.

Choices

What if there isn’t one right choice of how to live your life? What if there is not a giant door with a sign on it that reads The Right Choice— this way? What if finding your purpose, career, or mate is more about making little decisions every day that feel good and naturally shift you into a place of Soul-alignment?

Become Self-Conscious

It’s easy to live life on auto-pilot. Not really paying attention. Phoning it in.

But only by being fully conscious in the present moment of your thoughts, choices, desires, state of being, and actions can you genuinely know who you are.

Being self-conscious is being self-aware. Self-awareness is an inner listening of the Soul.

Listen intently, my friend. Listen consciously.
