The Zen Hustler In You

It was the I AM Love and Aliveness Retreat in February 2011. The weather had been terrible for the past few weeks but this weekend was looking great. The snow had started to melt, the roads were clear and the sun was out. But that was in Northern VA where I lived, not in Berkeley Springs, WV where the retreat was going to be held. The cabin we rented was atop a small hill and the roads leading up to the cabin were most definitely covered with thick ice and snow.  Vehicles, a no go!

My team and I always arrive at least one day before the retreat. The retreat began on Friday morning, so my team, Nicol, Mina, Dawn and I were there on Thursday morning. Mina and I were driving to Berkeley Springs together as we received the phone call. It was Dawn. She informs us that the road leading up to the cabin, coincidentally called "Breathrough Way", is covered in thick snow and ice and she can't get up to the cabin.

I am driving my car as Mina turns to her left and looks at me.  We...

Do Affirmations Really Work?

Do affirmations really work? Can standing in the mirror reciting one affirmation after another truly attract positive things to your life as the Law of Attraction suggests?

 The answer is yes...BUT simply going through the physical motions of reciting or writing down your affirmations is not enough. In order for affirmations to truly help you reach your full potential, you need to develop a sense of inner awareness.

Ask yourself, "Are there negative things that are going on in my life or in my mind that are actually sabotaging my ability to attract what I want in my life?" If the answer is yes then it's time for you to Pause for some personal reflection; discover who you are and why you are who you are. These discoveries will help bring down the walls that are blocking the power of affirmations in your life, and will allow you to better and more effectively use affirmations to create the success you desire.

Living Your Truth

How many times have you told a little white lie thinking it was no big deal? After all, no one got hurt, right? But we all know that one lie leads to even more lies, and eventually you end up in a situation that spirals out of control and becomes completely exhausting. We tell lies for many reasons, but when we are not speaking truthfully we are not being authentic. We are actually holding back what we really want to say.

Listen as Richa explains what damage not speaking your truth is actually causing in your life. What can you do on a daily basis to live a more truthful and honest life?

Got Baggage?

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. If your beliefs are positive, you will be successful. Likewise, if your beliefs tend to be negative your journey towards success may be a bit longer and more painful. The bottom line is you will have exactly what you believe in! Are your beliefs serving your higher good? Richa explains exactly how excess baggage is weighing us down and finishes with a thought-provoking exercise.

Beat Procrastination

Let's talk about procrastination for a minute. Yes, now, not tomorrow. How predictable! As much as it hurts to admit, if there was a way of putting off doing something for tomorrow or the next week, I've probably tried it! This was a habit that I developed over time and slowly but surely began to master, until....I couldn't afford to anymore. Since I wasn't in the present moment most of the time I hadn't realized what the energetic consequences of procrastination were. I was not only putting off the task at hand, I was putting off the unfolding and conscious creation of a future that I deeply desired. I spent time wondering why I wasn't witnessing breakthroughs and results? While all along my actions had been rather lackluster. A bit unfair, isn't it? To expect our intentions and dreams be manifested while self-sabotaging the very things we yearn the most?

Clean Shoes Tell No Stories

"Can we please have a weekend where we don't have another social event on the calendar? No birthday parties, no family functions, no work commitments. I would just like to wake up, relax with my first cup of coffee in the morning and have a day where I am not on a schedule!!!" A cry for help by my husband Kash and also a fair request. The weekends tend to get crammed with all the "other stuff" that cannot be scheduled during the week. As a result, all seven days on the calendar sometimes get packed with either work or non-work related activities, leaving little time to do "nothing".

Voila! A weekend we discovered we had wide open! Kash, who works 80/90 hours a week in his software sales job calls the week a "compression chamber". Come the weekend and all he wants to do is decompress, relax and rejuvenate! So here we were with the gift of free play time on our calendar. With a desire to go hiking with the kids weeks ago he had already picked out a place 20 minutes from us. He was so...

Recognizing Opportunities for Meditation

Have you ever been advised to "meditate"? Perhaps by a friend, a colleague or even your doctor? Several well-known leaders in the personal transformation field including Oprah, Deepak Chopra, and Wayne Dyer advocate that we get present, breathe, and meditate. We may hear this advice and believe that meditation is useful, but for some of us there is a preconceived notion of what it means to meditate. And for others of us it is a matter of feeling like there just aren't enough hours in the day. 

 

During my years of studying the different forms of meditation and ancient techniques from gurus and teachers in India I learned that there are many levels of meditation and a variety of techniques. While "sitting" is surely one of them, we practiced walking, movement, dancing, singing and even cooking as meditation. The goal was to infuse a meditative quality into our everyday lives. Simply stated, getting present and being mindful.

Instead of measuring "quiet time" by how many...
