The Most Meaningful Gifts We Can Give

blog Dec 09, 2014

Every year at this time shoppers are busily hustling and bustling around town trying with all their might to find "the perfect gift" for the special ones in their lives. Commercials ring out "He went to Jared!" or "Every kiss begins with Kay" in an attempt to lure customers into particular stores in the hopes of making a profit.

This leads me to ask myself, what is a gift? I know how the dictionary defines the word, but how do we define it for ourselves on a daily basis? Do we believe that a true gift has to cost an enormous amount of money and come in a neatly wrapped box with a big red bow? Do we believe that a true gift must come from the heart and hold value in our lives like a long lost treasure? Maybe it's a combination of both.

What if a true gift need not cost anything at all? What if the premise surrounding gift giving was to give something of yourself; something no one else could offer, something you couldn't find in a store, something that could not possibly be purchased...

Forgiveness

blog Nov 25, 2014

Have you ever been hurt? Have you felt pain and suffering because of an incident in your past? Is there someone in your life who has caused this pain and you now find yourself unable to embrace life fully because of this incident or person? Do you want to move forward and put this pain behind you? Have you considered forgiveness? Mahatma Gandhi said that "Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong, not the weak". Forgiving can create another way of life for you that give you access to all the peace and happiness you deserve. Not forgiving on the other hand holds you back and traps you in the past. Today's Pause For Power Radio episode will guide you towards being fully present in your relationships by letting go of the past and clearing the emotional baggage that is cluttering up your life.

I Love You, I Hate You, I Love You

blog Nov 21, 2014

Think back to when you were a child. Things were much easier back then. If you were hungry, you grabbed a snack. If you were tired, you took a nap. And if you were upset you just threw yourself on the floor and cried...and it was perfectly fine. 

Something I miss about being a child is how innocently children love. Love to them seems to come naturally. They don't question it. They don't weigh the odds of getting hurt if they put their hearts on the line. No, children have a way of seeing the beautiful side in everyone and loving unconditionally. 

 

When we are born, we love innocently. There are no checks and balances. There are no conditions...nothing to consider before giving our love to another person. All we know is that pure, simple love. Love the way it was meant to be.

As I watch my sweet girls interact with one another, I notice how their love is truly unconditional. They laugh together and share toys and DVDs...it truly warms my heart to see how purely they...

5 Guidelines to Ease Worrying

blog Oct 31, 2014

Have you turned on your television lately? If so, words like ISIS, Ebola, economy and Obamacare can send your blood pressure through the roof. It is difficult in today's world to keep from worrying. I've recently spoken with a number of friends who say they have trouble sleeping at night because their minds just can't shut down. With all of the stresses and strains on our lives these days it's no wonder people are weighted down with worry. 

Worry is a dangerous animal. It lurks through our minds and then moves in and says a while. It fills us with self-doubt, fear, and sometimes even anger...all of which have significant negative effects on our health and well-being.

So the question becomes, "How can we stop worrying?" There is a quote I love that states, "Worrying does not take away tomorrow's troubles, it takes away today's peace." Today I would like to present to you my top 5 guidelines to easing your worrying mind. I know I could use a little more of all of these things in...

Are You Too Busy to Feel?

blog Oct 21, 2014

We all have that one particular friend or relative that, when invited out to dinner or to a family get-together, is always "too busy". We hear this all the time, and maybe have even used this excuse ourselves to get out of an undesirable situation once or twice. But we've got to take a step back and ask ourselves, what exactly do we mean by "busy"?

In my mind there are two kinds of "busy". There is a legitimate type of busy where life is evolving around you at break-neck speed and you are doing your level best to keep up. Many of us have children, run businesses, are active in our communities and churches...pair all of that with the day-to-day tasks of running a household, caring for automobiles and lawns, and simply making sure everyone has clean clothing and food and you have the makings of a pretty busy day, I agree.

 

The second type of busy is what I call "optional busy". This type of busy is where we consciously choose to remain engaged in "life" so as to avoid being...

Prioritize And Simplify

blog Oct 21, 2014

Over the years I've often found myself getting overwhelmed to the point of near paralysis. This wasn't working for me, how could it? I now find that when I give up the way it looks to me, a.k.a the "overwhelm", I can just get present to what needs to get done. I begin with prioritization and then I break that down a little more and simplify my tasks even further. Now, I'm finally getting somewhere, consicously and purposefully. Experiencing my life without the drama of overwhelm is rather liberating.

Most people I know talk about this list that never gets done. I've found a way that works for me finally, and I'd love to share it with you. You can start getting clear, prioritizing and succeeding in your life immediately.

Everyone has baggage in their lives; those nagging, self-limiting beliefs that linger in your mind that keep you from reaching your highest potential. These beliefs can make you or break you. Only you can decide what you want them to do for you.

Are your beliefs serving your higher good? Richa explains exactly how excess baggage is weighing us down and finishes with a thought-provoking exercise.
