Today, I am going to share with you a series of principles that govern my
life. Remember that everything is energy and yoga is union of that energy.
Notice as you read each one, which ones speak to you, which cause you to
react, possibly in a negative or disbelieving way, and which ones are you
neutral about at this time. If you do not agree, what do you currently
believe instead? Just read each one and notice what comes up for you. Where
this is a charge, there is gold to mine.
Energy flows where attention goes. What we resist persists. Pay close
attention to what you are focusing on. What are you thinking about? What are
you feeling? How much time are you spending focusing on what you want, and how much time
are you spending focusing on what you don’t want?
Everything counts. Everything matters. A choice point exists in every
moment. Our life is shaped by the series of choices we make along the way.
Become more conscious about the choices presented to you. Become more
conscious of your ability to choose. This requires a shift in perspective
from Victim to Creator. This requires taking completely responsibility for all of
Everything is Energy. You are an energetic being in energetic exchange with
the Universe and everyone and everything in it.
Learn how to use it to heal yourself and create your extraordinary life.
Learn to work with this. Everything that shows up in your life is there for
You can learn to interpret this, recognize it, heal and clear it, and create
life YOUR way.
When we begin to dream big dreams, to set intentions and goals for
ourselves, when we begin to strive for a more extraordinary life, everything
that is not in alignment with that rises up to be healed or transformed. I call that, “Your
stuff coming up.” When you step into your intentions, dreams and goals, your
“stuff” is going to come up. You can choose to heal and clear this so that you can
move forward and step out of mediocrity into your most extraordinary
expression and experience.
Learn to leave the How’s to the Universe. Get to the essence of what you
want. Dream big. See it, feel it, live it, love it, be it. Don’t waste your
time asking, how? “How could THIS possibly happen for ME?”
Don’t let your logical mind take over and try to figure it all out. That
will take you right into stories of limitation, scarcity and lack.
The Universe can create miracles when we move out of the way.
Get out of your head and get out of your stories. We all have created
stories we tell others and ourselves that define who we are and what our
lives are about. These stories have power over us. They are highly charged with words and
emotions. We can become trapped within our stories. Start recognizing what stories you are telling, then stop telling your stories.
The Law of Attraction is always on. It always exists whether you believe in
it or not, whether you are actively working with it or not. It is not
something you can spend time on here and there and get consistent results. A
common misperception I see people making is that they set aside some time to
meditate or journal or say their affirmations or attend a workshop, and then
they step right back into living their life with their limiting beliefs, bad
habits and unhealthy patterns, and toxic emotions driving their bus. And
then they wonder why The Law of Attraction doesn’t work.
Once you get into the flow, don’t stop. Act, Access and Adjust. Keep going.
So many people stop just short of acting. They hesitate, and then they miss
the moment of the energy that has stepped in to meet them. You can learn to
stay connected to Source/Creator energy and to receive inspired actions.
Then it¹s still up to you to ACT.
Before the doing comes the being. This one is counterintuitive to a lot of
people when they first start working with it. Many people come for help, and
they say, tell me what to do, and I’ll do it if you can guarantee that I’ll
get these results. They say that when they have something, they will do
something that will allow them to be something. It doesn’t work that way.
You have to be the thing you want to be first. You have to do the things
that people like that would do. And THEN you will have what people like that
have. I call this the Be-Do-Have.
