When You Want Something, First Give That Something Away

20 Nov

Hello all.

The real secret to getting something you need, is by first giving it away. If you are missing love in your life, give love away for free, if you have very little money, give whatever you have away. If you want more happiness, make it your aim first to bring happiness to someone else. If you want peace, send others peace. The list goes on. This goes to the simple universal laws of creation. As you sow so shall you reap. You can’t have more of something unless you are ready to give it away first. By giving it away first, you prove to the universe that you really have it, therefore receiving more of what you want.

The Most Important Thing To Consider In Your Personal Development

13 Nov

Hello all.

The most important thing to consider in your personal development is that it is YOUR personal development. It doesn’t belong to anyone else, so that’s why I believe that the more you understand your timing and the way you get in your flow, the more you can appreciate your own personal development. So regardless of where you think you are in your own personal development,  know that it’s okay to be there as long as you know you are growing at your pace. Keep in mind what others think about where  you are in your personal development does not matter in this example. Only you would really know where you are in your personal development. If you get stuck with the feeling of not growing, that’s what leads to a lot of confusion about life.


We Are All In different stages in life.

We are all in different stages, I won’t even begin to assume to guess where you are on your particular path. But I know that personal develoment takes time. Some people are developing at this very moment and may not even know it. That’s why I urge people to keep record of all the growing up they did, so you can be grateful for the joy of learning new things for the future. I will post a video soon about the joy of learning on Youtube.

Don’t Compare

Comparing your personal growth with others is a total waste of time. Where you are today is a result of all the choices you made to lead you up to this point in life. It can be daunting or exciting depending on the consious or unconscious choices you have made in the past. But remember regardless if you are doing really well, or things are a bit of a challenge for you at the moment, don’t compare yourself to others. The ego loves to compare and do all these mind tricks, and ends up loosing in the end, because we are all one unified consiousness. Yes we all have different life experiences, but we are all connected at a deeper level in humanity. Accept where you are in your personal development, and use your knowledge to grow and expand into realities you intend to experience for yourself.

YOUR Personal Development

So remember it is your Personal development which means it doesn’t matter where you think you are along the path, or what others think, as long as you recognize life lessons when they appear, and grow from each one in a manner that is right for you. Being Patient and honoring your own personal development growth is essential to a worthwhile life.

Abundance Mindset V.S Scarcity Mindset-Why The Universe Rewards People Who Are Detached

9 Nov

Green_Grass_Blue_Sky_Bliss

Hello all.

You probably heard about the abundance and scarcity mindset before. The abundance mindset is a way of living that comes across as confident, detached, and joyful. It is confident that money, resources, and people will come in it’s own perfect time. The abundance mindset believes that there is always going to be more than enough. The scarcity mindset is a way of living that comes across as worried, attatched, and sad. The scarcity mindset always believes there is never going to be enough. It is constantly worried that money, resources, and people will not come.


The universe rewards Detachment

The universe rewards detatchment because after an intention is set, and you let go of this desire, the universe sees that you are confident and assured it will come. It seems counter intuitive by what we were taught in this society. The idea of setting a goal and never loosing sight of this goal (attaching) until completion does work. However, that way is only one way of reaching a desire. You see by being easy and relaxed about something coming is sending signals to the universe that you are in a dominant vibration. As you sink into a lower vibration of neediness and being clingy the universe gives you more neediness and scarcity, because this is a weaker vibration.

On A date

Let’s say that you are on a date with someone. You have probably been in the position when you are on a date, and felt that the person that is most interested in the other person and feels the need to attach, is the one that doesn’t get what he or she wants at the end of the day. The person that displays a sense of neediness generally in most cases, leaves feeling unfulfilled. The reason is because neediness is unattractive. There is a feeling of scarcity and lack when someone is in desperate need of something. The person on the date that is having a good time, relaxed, and detached actually is in control over the situation, because he or she is confident that everything works out fine in the end anyway. The same way is with abundance. The person trying desperately to need more abundance gets a lack of it, and the person that is relaxed and easy about it generally gets more abundance.

On Money

The individuals who care most about having money, generally get it, but aren’t fulfilled because of the way they attatched to the money. The person that sets the intention of having an abundance of money, lets it go and just has fun, is sending out a more dominate vibration out to the universe, and generally attracts more money to him or her. Like I said this may sound counter intuitive because of the way you were socially conditioned early on. However, understanding the importance of detatchment in getting what you desire is actually the best way to attract things to you.

You are a Magnet

Think of yourself as a magnet. You are constantly attracting to yourself that which you are. So if you are a happy joyful abundant person you attract these circumstances and people towards you. The problem is that people have a hard time seeing themselves as a magnet because they are stuck in the scarcity mindset. With the scarcity mindset you aren’t a magnet. As you become aware and grateful for the abundance that is already present in your life, you tune in easier to this abundance. The reason is because abundance is already within you. It’s not something “out there.” If you begin to live in this manner, you will have a lot more fun being yourself and allowing abundance to flow to you simply by just tunning into the abundance within you, by being grateful for what you already have.

You Don't "Have To" Do Anything.

Hello all.
You technically don’t “have to” do anything. We are bred as children to be forced into doing stuff we don’t like to do. This makes for very confused adulthood, as we begin to try to do things that made other people happy. The truth is the only thing you should be doing, is what you feel your life’s purpose is. You should always be following your highest excitment.
 
Your life’s purpose I can tell you right now is bigger than you. You will never feel like its accomplished, because the size of it. Your life’s purpose is what gets you excited each morning to get up really early to start working on it. However, in the beginning, all you really have to do is listen. Many people are waking up to this wonderful phenomenon. If you don’t know exactly what to do, don’t do anything, sit in silence. Don’t move if you don’t feel like it. We entering an age where freewill is becoming mainstream and easily understood. You control your destiny. You don’t necessarily have to do everything, just pick the few things that resonate deep within you and follow the unfolding of it all. Finding your life’s purpose takes time, and patience. The more you are aware and awakening to the natural flow of life, the more patience you will expect from yourself, and you will begin to realize there are times when you simply don’t have to do anything.
 
I am not a motivational blogger, I am a realistic blogger. I know that from my experience there were so many times that I was just like, “I don’t have to do anything, it will just come” And guess what. I was right. It just comes, don’t do anything if you don’t feel compelled to move yet. It is all about your timing. It’s not about anybody else’s time clock. You will read many books on self help, and personal development requiring you and pushing you to take action on your goals. But what if your not even in the place of goal setting yet? What if you haven’t found your purpose in life?
 
I am not like most personal development gurus out there, I know you don’t have it all figured out yet, and that is perfectly fine. We live in a “feeling” universe, you must go with the naturally flow of things. As you become more self aware, you will begin to feel the natural flow of things is actually you being yourself in the moment. Just don’t pretend that you have all these amazing plans for the future, when you aren’t even honestly clear of what your true purpose in life is. Just don’t fall into the habit of laziness. There’s a difference between consious nothingness and just flat out being lazy. But I know that if you are reading this type of blog, you understand the clear difference.
 
It’s fine not to do anything. Doing nothing, eventually allows you to do something good for you and others, if done consciously.

The Story Behind The Pictures I Post On My Blogs

Hello all.
Many people enjoy the pictures that I have above my blog posts. The majority of the pictures I post are carefully selected pictures I get from google images. I try my best to contact each photo and ask approval from the source when I can. Some of the other pictures you see of were taken by my sister Kimbundance. The picture above is from my sister Kimbundance. You can check out her amazing photography work HERE.

“A picture is worth a thousand words.”
-Napoleon Bonaparte

There is a little story that goes behind the pictures I’ve posted on my blogs.
This entire summer has been remarkable. This summer, I’ve been fortunate enough to have done a lot of traveling relatively close to California. This summer I’ve been lucky enough to travel to different parts of Arizona, Lake Tahoe, San Diego, and some really nice Orange County beaches such as Newport and Laguna Beach. While I was traveling, little did I know the pictures that I’ve carefully selected and admired that I had just grabbed from Google Images have began appearing to me in real life.

It was pretty amazing watching the whole thing unfold. I would be say in Arizona, visiting the Grand Canyon, and actually be standing right in front of the wonderful sight in real life, only to realize about 7-10 blog posts before, I had the exact same picture in one of my blog posts. This has happened in numerous occasions.
Life really does imitate art, and art imitates life…

Don't Use A Yardstick To Measure Up

4 Aug

silver coin

Hello all.

NOT TRYING TO MEASURE UP

The real secret to my personal life of beyond success, was the moment that I began stop using a yardstick to measure up to other people. I refuse to measure my accomplishments and failures with that of others. This is because I understand that the yardstick is actually a form of the ego. Like I’ve stated in my previous posts, the ego is desperate for survival. It needs to cling onto some fixed idea in order for it to survive. The idea of trying to have accomplished a particular thing at a certain time or age, is all ego.

I believe that the way the school system is structured actually strengthens the ego. For example, the idea of finishing college in 4 years, following orders from your teacher to get good grades, is a mental and social conditioning that enables people to start using the yardstick to measure up to others. The social constructed individual takes this into the workplace, and the ego chooses to hang out with people that identity with similar conditioning. So using a mental yardstick to measure up is actually something people, through social conditioning start to live up to. They begin comparing themselves, because there is a certain “time” things need to get done.

I don’t know about you, but the idea of having to always trust this yardstick doesn’t feel natural.
This has nothing to do with being either an ambitious or lazy individual. It’s about being in your natural flow at the time you are meant to be. I write a lot also about being in the present moment in my previous posts. This all ties into not using a yardstick, because when you are fully present in what you are doing, the thoughts of “measuring up” to others, slowly diminishes and ceases to exist. That’s why I believe the yardstick is a form of the ego, because it takes you out of the present moment, and instead of doing what needs to be done, you look outward for suggestions, when the real answers are within you to begin with.


“When You Try hard, You Die hard”
-Kanye West

The great thing about the way life works is that everything comes when it’s supposed to come. Nothing in nature is ever forced. If you look at the way the trees grow overtime, they actually just grow naturally. They don’t try hard to grow, they don’t compare their size to other trees. 🙂 One tree doesn’t try to grow taller than the other tree, it just grows at the level that is natural for the tree, neither does one tree try to shrink to make the tree next to it look bigger.

AN EXAMPLE FROM NATURE
The tree will lose leaves, and grow new ones. It’s just being. That’s what I feel more people should consider. Just being. Your personal growth may come really quickly or may come at a slower pace. You may have a run of tremendous accomplishment, and a time for a few disappointments. Begin now to be okay with the pace of whatever is best for you in your own life. Let it flow. Everything happens at it’s own pace and it’s own time.
Put your faith in yourself and you and express gratitude for the small victories along the way. Allow good things to come and don’t rely on the yardstick of other people, to determine where you should be, or what you should have. You are actually at a better place, than you realize at this moment.


“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
-Steve Jobs

A PERSONAL EXAMPLE-THE SUCCESS OF THIS BLOG
An example in my own life is that when I began to see a lot of success with this blog. To be honest, I couldn’t really keep up with the success of this blog at the time. When I started seeing 80+ visitors to my blog I got a little scared. From going to 0 views a day for 6 straight months, to my readership growing to 80+ was a stretch for me at the time. This fear has taught me to except what is and let it be. I have to be willing to accept the fact that I’m moving to higher levels with my writing. I’m learning how to accept the victories I’ve been blessed with along the way. I have to stay with this flow, because this is where I’m at.

One year ago, I couldn’t say that was the case at all. Two years ago I operated at a much slower pace of success. Two years ago things seemed to move slower and things felt muddy. So acknowledging that I’m in a higher place for me creatively is key. It’s not about whether others say it’s a success or not, but really what I honestly know from what I know for myself. Begin now to trust your flow, your own pace. This is a more reliable way for you to go about life.

Don’t use a yardstick to measure up, it’s not reliable.
