Archives For greatness

Are you your name? Are you your body? Or your job? Your gender? The family you came from? The color of your skin?

Or, are you much, much, greater than all of those definitions? Are you actually an infinite being?

We live in a world where we keep trying to define us and everyone else. Well, here’s the thing – definition always creates limitation.

Definitions and labels confine and limit us. When we judge ourselves or others based on labels, we are choosing to separate; we are choosing finiteness.

It’s our definition of us, and the ones we buy from other people, that stop us. Because it’s our definitions of us and others that lead to judgment. And judgment is the biggest killer on the planet.

As I watched this potent and moving video, I asked myself some questions:

What if we no longer chose smallness over greatness?
What would our world look like without separation, without labels, without judgment?

As Prince Ea says in the video – “When there’s division, there will be conflict.” What if by ending the division and the separation, the conflicts that are occurring all over the world could end?

I ask you my friends, what else do you know is possible here, on this planet of ours? What would you like to choose? What choices could you make today to create a world you’d like to live in?

Awhile back, I did a google hangout on “The Potency of Being Undefined”. Imagine for a moment if you had no name, no race, no past and no definitions of who, what, when, where, how and why you were supposed to be? If you no longer had to look for a definition of yourself, or others, what possibilities would be available that you haven’t yet chosen?

You see, it’s our definition of us, that we we’re not willing to go beyond, that leads to the limited path that we can walk rather than an expansive path of infinite possibilities.

Which one would you like to choose my friends? What else do you know is possible?

Until next time,

Are you one of those people that is interested in LOTS of different things?  Maybe you’re like me and bright, shiny new things make you happy? 🙂

Have you ever jumped in the deep end of something new and found that you can swim quite well?  But then maybe later (often pretty quickly), you get bored. It’s not challenging anymore. It’s not fun.  You’re ready to move on, yet you make yourself wrong for not being able to commit, not sticking with something, and not finding your ‘purpose’ in life.

What if you didn’t have to make yourself wrong anymore? What if this ‘wrongness’ is actually a strongness?

In our culture, we’ve been told that you should feel like a failure if you don’t find your purpose – a jack of all trades and master of none.  This idea – that you have to find your destiny and your one true calling, and if you don’t figure it out, you have somehow failed or are terribly wrong…does that make you feel light or heavy?

What’s true always makes you feel lighter.  A lie always makes you feel heavier.

I have a question for you my friends – what if you are a master of all trades and a jack of none? What if you’re more brilliant and gifted than you’ve ever acknowledged? Does that make you feel lighter or heavier?

What if you didn’t have to choose just one thing? What if you didn’t have to limit your menu of choice at all?

What if instead, one of your greatest gifts, was the capacity to learn new things, to adapt, and to be able to choose anything and everything you would like to?

As I watched this amazing TED Talk about ‘multipotentialites’ (a great term created by Emilie Wapnick), I was reminded once again of the brilliance that each of us has by continuing to choose, seek, and explore more of what is possible.

Welcome to the world of infinite possibilities my friends!

What if you are way, way greater than you’ve decided you are?

What if who you be right now is just the starting point of an adventure of what you can create yourself as?

What I’ve noticed is that the normal, average and real is really just a mask that most people learned to hide behind. And when someone let’s the mask fall, and becomes real and authentic, there is this huge mutual sigh of relief from everyone around. Suddenly everyone breathes easier and becomes more ALIVE — all from that one person dropping the mask.

The strange thing is that WE ALL KNOW THIS.

All through our lives, we try to peek behind other’s masks, to see who they really are. We often fall in love with just a small, tiny glimps of who someone truly is. The movies we adore, the stories that touch us the deepest, they are all about people showing up as the greatness they truly be. Something — circumstances, crisis, death, war, catastrophe — pushes them beyond the box of the normal they bought as real, and as their barriers fall, they SOAR.

We’re touched since we know this to be true, in ourselves. We actually know we are so much more than what we decided we are.

What if you let your mask fall now? What if you don’t need be pushed off the cliff?What could you receive? What could you be? What could you inspire in the world?

And please know, this is not hard work. It is actually way easier than keeping the mask on!

You, truly being you, has a smile to it. The soft smile of the lightness of being.

What the BLEEP is BE-ing?

December 7, 2014 — 1 Comment

Do you have a sense of ease with who you are, wherever you go?

What if that is what “BEING YOU” is all about?

If you’ve been searching endlessly for your purpose and the meaning of it all or secretly wondering what it would take to stop getting it wrong…here’s a Google Hangout just for you!
[break]

When you’re actually willing to get out of the plan … you can get into the possibilities. And, when you don’t have to have everything show up the way you “think” it should or the way this reality says it should…the Universe can show you the easiest path possible.

You see, what we’ve always been taught is how to be and create in this reality.

If you had no judgment of you ever again, you would actually be choosing and creating your own reality.

Would you like to get a sense of what your reality would be like?

To listen in to a 9-minute audio from the Finding the Greatness of You telecall with an exercise that will give you a sense of the greatness you truly be, go here:

We never quite know how life’s obstacles and challenges will change our course. We can never really predict either the tragedies in life or the greatnesses that come from them.

What if one choice, one question, can drastically change everything?

This TEDx talk of Amy Purdy, Gold Medalist and entrepreneur who lost her legs at age 19; and is truly an example of inspiration on the planet.

If my life were a book…and I was the author…how would I want the story to go? -Amy Purdy

Do you know that you are here to bring something to this world that would change it for the greater? And maybe in ways you’ve never even imagined yet?

What if your limitations and challenges are gifts that ignite your imagination and inspire you to go further than you ever thought you could go?

Are there things that you have experienced in the past that seem impossible to move beyond? Are there hurts that have occurred that you just can’t seem to let go of? Do you find yourself playing the same story over and over again in your mind and wondering if you’ll ever be free?

What would it take to truly move beyond the hurts of the past? What would it take to remove your energy from those situations and to put it into truly creating the life you desire?

For starters, take a look at who’s running your life. Are you? Or is all of the anger, rage, fury, hate and resentment? If anger and resentment are who’s in charge, are you ready to choose something different? Perhaps you are saying, “Yes! I’m willing to choose something different. But how? I’ve tried so many things and I just can’t seem to silence the resentment.”

Here are a few tools that you can use to unstick you from the hurts of the past and move you into the place of total freedom:

Moving beyond the hurts of the past starts with a choice. Have you made that choice? Would you be willing to? Would you be willing to say, “I’m choosing me. I’m choosing the power and potency of me. I’m choosing to move beyond these situations that have been holding me back.”?

Ask: What’s the value of holding on to the hurts of the past? Whenever we choose something, we perceive that there is something of value in it. For some of us, we hold on to hurts because we want to be right and we want to prove how right we are. For others, we hold on to prove that we are indeed as wrong as we have decided we are. Whatever the reason may be, when we are holding on to the hurts of the past, we are not in charge of our lives. Something else is.

When you ask, “What’s the value of holding on to the hurts of the past?” everything you’ve decided that is locking that in place comes up and you are able to clear all of that away with the clearing statement. Right and wrong, good and bad, POD and POC, all nines, shorts, boys and beyond.

When being free has more value to us than proving that we are right or proving that we are wrong, the hurt we are holding on to start to fade away.

Undo the idea that there are hurts in the past that you can’t go beyond and that you can’t change as well as the idea that they are greater than you. In order for the hurts or situations of the past to be controlling your life, you have had to make them greater than you. And the truth is, NOTHING IS GREATER THAN YOU! So everywhere you decided that someone or something was more powerful than you, everywhere you made yourself small rather than being the total potency, the total capacity and the total brilliance of you, would you now be willing to let that go? And would you be willing to claim, own and acknowledge the true potency of you?

Moving beyond the hurts of the past begins with a choice. The choice to no longer be at the effect of people or situation. The choice to be the greatness of you. Are you ready to be free?
