Change: One Thing You Can Rely On and Use to Your Advantage ~ Cherie Roe Dirksen.

Change: One Thing You Can Rely On and Use to Your Advantage.

By Cherie Roe Dirksen, Conscious Life News.

July 5th, 2019.

“To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” — Winston Churchill
You guessed it, the only constant thing is this mortal coil is change. It’s the definitive dichotomy of our existence.
 
Now — seeing it’s the only thing you most certainly CAN rely on — let’s look at how we can use change to our benefit:
“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” — Wayne Dyer
1. Perspective
When the earth around you shakes, the only thing you can do to keep your head above water is to adapt. When you allow yourself to see change as a prelude to something greater, you can learn how to cope with it more easily.
Changing the way you look at something will ultimately give you a bigger picture and more coping skills. Staying stuck in rigidity will only make you less flexible and fearful.
“Without a struggle, there can be no progress.”  — Frederick Douglass
2. Progress
When the earth was terraforming, it must have been an awesome sight to behold. Continents shifting, mountains being pushed up from the depths of the ocean and molten lava spewing out of the earths core to create new land. It must have been sheer chaos but without the changes the earth experienced, we would not have the beautiful planet we experience today.

Sometimes things seem harsh but, in the long run, can be leading to a more exquisite conclusion — something you couldn’t have expected in your dizziest daydreams.
Exercise your mind to embrace reformation and to expect the world around you to keep evolving to an even better state of existence than what you are experiencing now. When you do this, you are always laying seeds for a positive outcome.
“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” — George Bernard Shaw
And, finally:
“The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.” — Alan Watts
3. Prepare
Play with reshaping your environment — gracefully accept the dance and move with redirective flow. You can take small steps today to train yourself in accepting change such as:
  • Rearrange your home decor periodically,
  • experiment with your wardrobe,
  • shuffle things about on your office desk,
  • plan a new jogging route,
  • attempt a new zesty meal plan for the week or test out a different restaurant,
  • try something new this weekend instead of doing the same old same old — inject change into your daily life and break up stringent regimes.
The human race is fixated on routine and stability and, although those qualities sometimes have their place, we could do with learning to accept and even instigate transformation once in a while to build that flexibility muscle.

Be the master of change and see how life becomes easier and more joyful.
“You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.” — Jim Rohn

What Could Possibly Be More Powerful Than Positive Thinking? The Answer May Surprise You! ~ Cherie Roe Dirksen.

What Could Possibly Be More Powerful Than Positive Thinking?

 The Answer May Surprise You!

We Just Can’t Help It!
It’s January 2016 and it’s that time of year when most of us are all revved up and ready for change — we, the hopefuls, dream of stepping up our game in the new months that are about to unfold. It’s all quite exciting.
Then a few weeks into the new year — well, you know the story — some of us get disillusioned and stumble off that rickety bandwagon. Our hopes, dreams and willpower get kicked to the curb and we continue with the same old same old wondering why every year feels like a sequel to Groundhog Day.
Towards the end of last year, I overheard some folks complaining about people who make new years resolutions and all that ‘blah blah blah’…then I saw a quote on Facebook that made me laugh. I’m paraphrasing here but it went something like, ‘I’m not making any new years resolutions ’cause, let’s face it, who likes a skinny, rich woman?’

I even tried to stay away from making resolutions this year but I just couldn’t resist the pull…
Getting Real…For the Umpteenth Time!
I’m no stranger to the Law of Attraction and positive thinking and I’ve applied them to most sections of my life with great success. However, I also have some areas of my life that I’ve applied them to with little or sporadic success.
What I mean by this is that I can achieve something one month but can’t pull it off the next – it wavers (in this specific arena) and then I begin to doubt myself. And I know I’m not the only one experiencing this.
The last months of 2015 had me catching a huge wake up call.
Positive thinking is fantabulosis. But positive feeling is the vooma that lights that ignition! Some of you have probably heard of this already. I had. A gazillion times before as a matter of fact. I know this and yet I was still deluding myself and avoiding how I was truly feeling about the things I was trying to create.
Introspection and Facing a Hard Reality
My ‘a-ha’ moments with regards to manifesting finances come and go and never seem to ‘stick’. I have huge epiphanies, things go great and then I trip and fall into a rut.
I took a very serious look at my manifesting behaviors over this past year and was quite shocked to see that I was sliding down a slippery slope of limited thinking — falling back into an abyss of past experience that was dictating my future.
So I hopped to it and created a new vision board for myself in December. When I stepped back to look at it it made my eyes hurt. It was all over the place! It was so helter-skelter that I felt like crying. Why? It was such a huge reflection of what was going on in my head.

My brains and ambitions at the end of 2015 felt like watery, scrambled eggs.
Cracking the Shell
I took a long, hard, penetrating look at my life and thoughts and realized that all the positive thinking in the world couldn’t help me if I felt so ‘out of control’ on the inside.
I do positively affirm a lot of things when I wake up and even during the day. I try to steer my thoughts to positive outcomes but I was lacking in one thing. I wasn’t checking in with myself to see if I was truly feeling positive about my situation.
I got real and figured out that even though I have set goals, vision boards, do affirmations — the whole toot — I was not always feeling the outcome. There was still a little lack in my gut (your solar plexus doesn’t lie!). A little twinge to say, ‘you might not (fill in the blank)’.
How did I feel about manifesting enough money for next months bills?
Exhausted. My brain was jet-lagged. I hadn’t really accomplished what I wanted to this year and I felt like I didn’t even know what I wanted for next year. It felt overwhelming and it was reflecting in my vision board
Their is No Space For Doubt
I set to work trying to simplify my board. I got it down to the top 10 things I wanted this year. I stood back this time and felt relief wash over me. I could feel the shift within.
It was as though all the straggling thoughts had been filed neatly for me to gaze upon and the feeling was being upgraded.
I had been too chaotic in my thoughts and it was manifesting in my life through my feelings of being out of control. I was even trying to control how I manifested things. My new board reflected what I wanted and I decided to relinquish how I was going to get it.
Within 2 days of me completing the new and upgraded vision for 2016, I manifested one of the things on that board. It involved me bartering one of my paintings for it but, low and behold, the damn thing was working!
Within a week, I had manifested another thing on my board.
What changed?
I not only do my affirmations every day now but I make myself feel what it’s like to be on that holiday in Italy, sipping red wine and I can feel the wind zipping through my hair as I cycle down the main road on my new mountain bike.
Before I thought I had to concentrate on manifesting money to be able to buy things and experiences but I know now that the universe works in mysterious ways.
I’ve had people give me things that I thought I’d have to buy or spontaneously treat me to dinner or even trade with me for mutually beneficial gain. It’s opened my eyes up to new ways of manifesting and has given me a new hope that this year is going to be epic.

All I have to do is feel it. I hope you get to feel your way to all the things you dream about doing and having!

How to Align Your Life With the Power of Focused Attention ~ Tamara Rant

How to Align Your Life With the Power of Focused Attention.

By Tamara Rant, Conscious Life News.

May 4th, 2019. 

 
.

 

 
Most of us have heard the phrase, “Energy flows where attention goes”, but have you ever stopped to ponder what this truly means and how to actually apply this Truth to your own life? It is such a powerful principle that can so easily be harnessed, yet so few of us catch onto it right away; if ever.
Most of us tend to put our energy into the things we think we are supposed to and for the most part that’s a good thing, right? We study hard so we get into a good college so we have a better chance at landing a good job. We take care of our families by going to those jobs each day. We pay the bills from our wages to keep a roof over our heads, etc.
However, if most of us are doing what we are “supposed” to be doing, then why are so many of us so unhappy and so unsatisfied with our lives? The very lives we work so very hard for every single day to ensure stay in place just as they are? Why do we struggle then, only to keep the struggle going? Do you see where I’m going with this?
Well, for starters let’s take a look at where our major priorities in life may come from. If you never question your own beliefs, wants, and feelings then how can you ever know if they are truly your own or have simply been inherited or passed down from your parents and possibly even the generations before them? This would mean that what you are choosing to focus on is a subconscious, not conscious choice that is there because of someone else’s perceptions of the world; not your own.
If you are happy, then keep on keeping on! However, if you are unhappy and want to align your life so that it works better for you, then the first thing I would suggest that you do is take a look at your core beliefs; these strongest, most influential beliefs you have over the greatest, most relevant parts of your life including your love life, finances, health and career.
You may get a feeling at some point during your career that the particular path they’ve chosen is not for you and that you’re simply not doing what you love. It may run as deep as feeling like you’re wasting your talents, gifts and abilities and were put here to do more than “the daily grind”. If it runs deep enough, this is often the first time we question what we are doing with our lives, why and for whom?
Unfortunately, many of us never stop to question our beliefs and may never know the Self with a capital “S” that lies beneath the masks of our perceptual personality. However, if we do get to asking the question, then this usually is the first sign that our current beliefs and motivations leave great room for growth, molding, shaping and expansion of our creation and hopefully we like the taste of power that questioning our beliefs actually gives us.
Focusing our attention on all we’ve been told and un-learning anything that no longer serves us is the first step to aligning our lives. With the first question, with directed attention on new potential we begin to see that we are creators in our own rite. And hopefully, we roll with it! 🙂 Because the more we are willing to face the unknown about ourselves and get to know to real us, the more life will reward us with balanced experiences. And by that I mean, because you are living as a true expression of yourself, you stop projecting and reflecting in your relationships and you just ARE. And with just being is where we find…yep, you guessed it…balance. And in balance, there is none other than peace.
When we can live peaceful lives, we thrive and align in all sectors. We are not haunted by our fears, but rather see them as catalysts for action. We are not exhausted by change, we are respectful of it’s infinite presence. We are not attached to experiences, we are aware of conscious love in all time. We’re not living on auto-pilot reacting to things that “happen” to us, but rather choosing how we direct our focus and energy or rather living “pro-actively”. We gain confidence needed to focus our attention on self-love and things that serve us, so that we may better serve the world.
When we make a conscious choice regarding what we think about rather than just letting our brain run rampant, a funny thing happens…you realize that you are not your thoughts! You are, rather, the observer behind them; the conscious listener per se. And you realize as well that this consciousness you are, is ever-present, and infinite and if you’re anything like me when this hit my heart, an unimaginable wave of peace will overcome you.
I think we’d all agree that living in peace where you feel aligned and balanced would sound great to anyone, right? And I’m confident that anyone can live that way, regardless of what circumstances we many find ourselves in. This doesn’t mean repressing emotions or pushing down feelings. This is a simple shift in how we handle things and process our feelings. We are peaceful because we are confident, strong and can trust our own decisions. We are aligned because of the choices we are now making in our lives that serve our needs and allow us to do what we love. We are so much stronger than we’ve ever been taught to believe and perhaps that is the first belief we must truly take into our hearts as our own to overcome all others that are not.
*This article is dedicated to all the kick-ass souls out there who had the guts to leave jobs they hated to make a living doing what they love! Have a safe and awesome Labor Day weekend (if you’re here in the States with me, of course.)

How to Use Your Heart Wisdom ~ Cherie Roe Dirksen

How to Use Your Heart Wisdom.

By Cherie Roe Dirksen, Conscious Life News.

We hear the terms ‘heart-centered living’ and ‘using your heart’ thrown around a lot in conversation and literature these days but how do we practically do this? What wisdom does our heart really have?
“There is no instinct like that of the heart.” ~ Lord Byron
Piercing the Heart Mystery
When I think of using my heart and not my head to gauge situations, it conjures feelings of love (synonymous with our ‘hearts’) and trusting my intuition.  However, it still baffles me a bit…well at least up until a recent experience I had (I promise to divulge all the juicy bits further on in this article).
In my experience, heart wisdom has got as much to do with our physical heart organ as mind has to do with our physical brain.
The process of working with your heart guidance is better likened to a hunk of awareness that clusters in the area of your heart.  You drop into that space, which is the center of your being — your core — and you try to sense your inborn intelligence…something called the innate.
This is how I see it, or rather, how I feel it.
The Moving Around of Consciousness
When we are thinking and talking, our consciousness is usually felt in the head.  See if you can feel your consciousness right now.  Does it feel like it’s all sitting up in your noggin?
Now see if you can drop that sense of conscious awareness into your heart center (which is actually your heart chakra — in the middle of your chest).
I feel it’s all about focusing that consciousness wherever it is needed.  Sometimes, we can drop that awareness into our solar plexus to ‘feel’ for our gut instinct.  When we are faced with challenges, it’s best to sense our answers from the heart chakra and when we need to take action (after we have processed through the heart), we move our awareness up into our head.
It’s a Combo Deal
We need to get used to using all our bodily ‘brains’ to face the challenges of living in this chaotic and, yet, oh so beautiful world.
“The heart is the chief feature of a functioning mind.” ~ Frank Lloyd Wright
We have brains in our skull, for sure, but you can also say we have intelligence dotted all over the body — in our gut, in our heart, in our pineal, in our feet and so on.  Most of us have just lost the inherent ability to use them all.
Thumbs Up to a Helpful Heart
Okay, so here’s my story about how I finally ‘got’ using the heart guidance:
A couple of days ago I got my thumb slammed in the hinge-side of my car door…and this is where I’m going to introduce you to the South African word (Afrikaans to be precise), ‘Eina!’  Pronounced ‘aye – naa’ and it means PAIN.
After using ice pack after ice pack to numb the pain, I knew it was inevitable that I would have to leave the cold comfort of my plastic glacial crutch and feel the damage.
This is where the head came into play.
My thoughts wandered all over my thumb piercing the excruciating throbbing and feelings of heat and swelling.  It was obviously necessary to feel that my appendage was damaged (if we didn’t feel the pain, we wouldn’t be alerted to a problem).
Right, so now that I was alerted to my body’s distress call and felt the busy little repair army coming to do its job, I wondered, ‘so what is the point of still feeling the pain?  I know I’m hurt — I’ve done all I can to ‘doctor’ myself…why can’t we just ‘switch off’?’
“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart … Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.” ~ Carl Jung
Then, by some weird miraculous notion, I started to move my consciousness into my heart center.  It was kind of spontaneous and I went with it.  I focused all my awareness in the space of my chest and ‘thought’ from there.  The pain subsided until it was completely gone and all I was left with was the throb.
I scanned my thumb with my heart mind and was still alert to the pounding (almost as if the body is still reminding you that there is a ‘crisis’ being seen to) but without the pain.
Hallelujah!
For the next half hour I sat switching from mind (experiencing the pain) to heart (no pain), just to make sure I wasn’t delusional.  It worked every time!
Alchemy and the Heart — Turning Our Experiences into Gold!
It’s still early days for me and my new found heart/mind appreciation.  I’m not professing to now be in full control of pain but I sure got a glimpse of how our amazing system works, or should work.
Pain is necessary to alert us to something that is out of alignment (this can be taken both physically or mentally/emotionally) but could it be that we don’t have to suffer as a consequence?  That using our mind to do all the thinking is actually causing us unnecessary suffering?
It’s something to ponder, or should I say, something we should at least try to explore or sense. within ourselves — shifting from perpetual overthinking to heart-centered awareness.

Could it be that our heart-centers are our own personal Philosophers Stone — alchemizing situations to their most basic core?
I’ve sensed that our hearts are divination tools to the truth.  When we drop into our hearts we operate from completeness — from the wholeness of our sacred soul.
“The workings of the human heart are the profoundest mystery of the universe. One moment they make us despair of our kind, and the next we see in them the reflection of the divine image.” ~ Charles W. Chestnut
It’s pure bliss to drop into our hearts — when it is done effectively it feels like everything is as it should be and that the only truth is unconditional, unequivocal love.

We are spirit having a corporeal experience therefore it is necessary to be mindful of our thoughts and the physical actions we need to take in order to sustain our material endeavor.  However, strive to trust the innate wisdom of the heart and use it as often as possible as a balancing, neutralizing force in our lives.
“If I keep a green bough in my heart, then the singing bird will come.” ~ Chinese Proverb

4 Alchemical Tools for Spiritual Transmutation ~ Tamara Rant.

4 Alchemical Tools for Spiritual Transmutation.

By Tamara Rant, Conscious Life News.

February 11, 2019. 

 
.

 

 
The ancient art of Transmutation has stretched and webbed itself to mean different things throughout various theologies and esoteric studies. In pure Alchemy, it is the act of turning lead into gold, whereas within the darker halls of the esoteric soul sciences, it is the act of bringing your shadows to light to become the greatest, most illuminated version of yourself. As gold is the goal within the chemical and physical processes; wisdom and joy are the goals when it comes to “spiritual” Alchemy.
In modern society, we are taught as very young children to feel “good” or “bad” about certain emotions and ultimately parts of ourselves we’ve already associated with these emotions. The raising of children lead to believe that anger is unacceptable or embarrassing, or that having individual wants and needs is selfish and shameful, sows the seeds for future adults who believe that money is God and aptly surrender their lives to participate in what is deemed appropriate by the masses.
I remember being SOOO damn confused as a child having adults around me tell me things like they had “wished” they had gone after their dreams, or if they could go back and do some things over they would. Seemingly putting out an underlying message or even a warning perhaps of what’s to come later in life.
These same adults preaching how important it is to learn and study, which is absolutely true; however it is WHAT we are taught to focus on that I have a problem with as a 40-year-old woman…and it’s one I’ve had since I was a 4-year-old girl…
Whether we have figured it out yet or not, we are raised in a world of confusion, conundrums, and hypocrisy. The parent living vicariously through their children; putting more effort into seeing how their pushes and pulls on their children towards or away from certain things, is somehow worth more than putting in the same effort to manifest these types of “successes” for themselves.
It never made sense to me as a child to see an adult be so talented as something, and then not do it for years because someone made a rude comment or told them they weren’t good enough at some point. Like the lack of pure, unadulterated (no pun intended) joy was worth giving up, just to keep our sad stories alive and well of why we “can’t do it” or “don’t have enough time to do it”. This isn’t and wasn’t the most confusing part for me growing up. It was rather the fact that while those around me were literally in jobs they hate, working to impress people they don’t even really like, voluntarily giving up the pursuit of their own dreams, yet somehow find the time to push us as children to “never give up” on our own.
How can a child learn to express their greatest potentials with the adults around them living lives where they are doing anything but?

“The world is changed by your example, not by your opinion.” – Paulo Coelho

 
While I don’t have children personally, I’ve come to understand throughout my own learning processes, that adults do not actually exist and we are ALL just children; some of us who’ve been here a bit longer than others. What I mean by this is that we don’t ever actually “grow up” but rather we grow “out of” or “into” different versions of ourselves. But ultimately, we never lose who we are as children and if we are wise, we learn to appreciate that rather than thinking it is something to be ashamed of, for it is our childlike wonder, enwrapped in our imaginations that are ultimately weaving our lives…stitch by stitch…thought by thought…
We can keep a firm grip on our inner child, while also allowing it to keep us grounded to our roots. This is something I think many people give up throughout their lives and once we have convinced ourselves that inner child has long since gone, it becomes so much easier to convince ourselves it’s too late to become our greatest selves, which cannot happen without the acceptance and embracing of all facets of your existence, and this includes facing our darkest shadows, to allow the brightest light from with to emerge.
Thus this brings us to the 4 Alchemical Tools for Spiritual Transmutation and they are as follows…
  1. Nigredo (Confession) – Connecting with your deepest and darkest desires, facing your shadows, proactively looking at parts of yourself without judgment.
  2. Albedo (Illumination) – Focusing on building a connection between the conscious and unconscious mind, interacting with and reading the world around you through symbols, dreams, and archetypes.
  3. Citrinitas (Education) – Transference and Countertransference work that focuses on our interactions with others and the world at large to get a better view of our place within it.
  4. Rubedo (Transformation) – Focusing on individuation and authentic personification; i.e. living your most true and highest potential self.
Now, I’ve purposely omitted including more information on these stages because my intention is not to point which way to go, but rather to plant a seed and just get you started in the right direction; whatever that is for you personally. I know for me, researching new topics with the sole intention of gaining new and wider perspectives, is the key that opens the door to the Universe. And once the Universe is invited and welcome into your life, it will gently but firmly point the way for you…
We all just need to look up and within as only then we will know we are never truly without. Happy transmuting!

5 Tools to Stop You Worrying ~ Cherie Roe Dirksen

5 Tools to Stop You Worrying.

By Cherie Roe Dirksen, Conscious Life News.

February 1, 2019.

Why Do We Worry So?
When it comes to concerns about life’s uneasy or potentially disastrous situations, we start to worry. I don’t think there is a single person in this world that hasn’t experienced a copious bout of the collywobbles in their lifetime — but why do we do this?
There could be a number of reasons, some being:
  • You feel you need to ‘prepare’ yourself for the worst
  • You are a ‘glass is half empty’ kind of person and just expect the worst to happen
  • It is in your experience that disaster always strikes, so worry is a necessary coping mechanism
  • There are so many things that could go wrong and you feel you need to focus on each one to embody it or try to find a possible solution for it in the event of it happening.
Now, if we actually look at this list from a transpersonal point of view — we take ourselves out of the equation and are impartial — these worries are not only a waste of precious manifesting time but they are a reinforcement of nonconstructive potential timelines.
YOU ARE WHAT YOU THINK
Just remember you bring about what you think about the most.  This is not meant to scare you, it’s a preparation tool so that you can steer your thoughts to more positive neurological pathways.  When you reinforce encouraging situations in your mind, as opposed to harmful scenarios (aka worrying), you are creating potential for a more fruitful future.
Easier said than done?
Sure, but it is possible.
Answer this: Has worrying ever solved your problems anyway?
I’m going to take a stab in the dark and say ‘no’ it probably hasn’t, right?  So, what can you do now to alleviate any future concerns you have?
Eckhart Tolle has pointed out three memorable and straightforward options that you can apply here, either: remove yourself from the situation (in this case, remove the worry), change it (transmute the worrisome thought form), or accept it totally (surrender to any future possibility).  But let’s go into it a bit more:
Here are 5 simple techniques you can carry out when you find yourself in a state of worry:
1. Do Something
Swap worrying for doing. Can you actually do something about it now?  If the answer is yes, take those first steps and you will begin to lighten the load off your mind.  Even if it means writing the problem down.  Just getting it out of your head and onto paper can be a relief.  You can even then burn the paper or trash it symbolizing your new stance on worry.  Tell your troublesome thought who’s the boss! The best thing you can actually do is visualize what you DO want to happen — I can’t stress this enough.
2. Find a Solution
solutions quote
Map out a possible solution. Again, it’s always helpful to write it down so that your mind is free of it.  When you can look at some achievable solutions, you may gain a better perspective of how you can change or alter the course of your quandary. Remember to focus on the desired outcome.

3. Acceptance
If there is absolutely nothing you can do, then try acceptance of what is.  If you cannot change what is, you need to let it go and find peace within your situation. How has this situation affected your life? Is there any diamond you can mine from it? Hint: there usually always is a positive learning when you can train yourself to see something from an alternative perspective.
4. Meditate
Solutions will present themselves when we quiet the mind.  There is a wealth of information just waiting for you to tap into when you are in a meditative state.   Clearing your mind of what I like to call ‘mind-static’ (continuous loops of mind chatter — read related article: How to Stop the ‘Monkey Mind’ Phenomenon) will help you to excavate that pearl of truth and gain a lucid perspective. When you step out of the way — solutions can come in. Your higher self never gives you any challenge that you cannot conquer.
5. Positive Reinforcement
Remind yourself that what you think you attract. Do you want to attract more of what you are worrying about? If not, then switch to thinking about what you do want to manifest in your life and let all negative outcomes go — you don’t need them. Capeesh!
“Make sure your thinking is pointing you in the right direction to manifesting your ideal destination” 
The mind can be trained to think differently — you are 100% in control of your destiny.
You have a choice to rewire your thought process to align with what you want to manifest — don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.  Don’t fall into the trap of being a ‘victim of circumstance’ — this state doesn’t really exist as you create everything and only you can give it the necessary potency.
Playing any kind of victim role is a disempowering stance that you should avoid at all costs.
You are the powerful creator of your reality and you are in the driver’s seat — where are you going?  Where do you want to go?  Wherever you see yourself in the future just remember, worrying never got anyone anywhere — so…
Hakuna Matata* all the way!
