Native Wisdom… October 28, 2011

One of the greatest gifts we have been given is the one of free will.  The freedom to chose any direction we want! I coach a lot about choice.  Where do you want to go from here? If you don’t like how you feel make a different choice… What’s another way of looking at your situation?

This “Native Wisdom” was sent to me awhile ago from my dear friend Reverend Mark Delcuze.  And then I was reminded again from another remarkable coach, Tara Roth! I believe that things show up for a reason… so Obviously this is something I need to hear.  I hope you enjoy it as much!!

 

Native Wisdom: A Grandfather from the Cherokee Nation was talking with his grandson.

“A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.
“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.”
“One wolf is evil and ugly: He is anger, envy, war, greed, self-pity, sorrow, regret, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, selfishness and arrogance.”
“The other wolf is beautiful and good: He is friendly, joyful, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, justice, fairness, empathy, generosity, true, compassion, gratitude, and deep vision.”
“This same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other human as well.”
The grandson paused in deep reflection because of what his grandfather had just said. Then he finally cried out; “Oyee! Grandfather, which wolf will win?”
The elder Cherokee replied, “The one you feed.”

How do you unplug? October 26, 2011

As I sit here listening to the clock tick and the birds chirp, I wonder how do people unplug?  We, myself included run around during our day strapped to our phone.  Not but 10 years ago we were able to leave our home/office and be relatively untethered.  But now between texting, IM’ing, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, LinkedIn or any social media for that fact (along with all the different  pieces of technology we use) we undergo a barrage of static energy.  For our business and our relationships to work we have told ourselves this is how it needs to be.  But I want to know: What do you want it to be?  How can we find that happy medium where our business and intimate relationships can thrive? How can you unplugged? Turn off? Put down and walk away from this stimulus?

You know how when your on vacation and you decide to turn off your phone and computer it can take at least a few days to realize that you aren’t running late for something? You know that feeling: “I know I should be doing something”.  How do you allow it to dissipate?  It amazes me how long it takes that anxious feeling to go away and it’s even stronger when you work for yourself! What can you do to unplug, step away and put down the gadgets?  Is it taking a walk… without them? Meditate? How do you give yourself permission to not respond?  I have really been enjoying getting out in nature and going for a walk… Heaven.  This stress level can and to myriad illnesses as we know. So let’s start a dialogue on what we can do to let in the air, Love and space!

What do you do?

Jealousy: An inside job October 4, 2011

As many of you know I’m inspired by my clients on a regular basis and as such I end up writing about that inspired thought.  Well today it is about jealousy.  For some reason this topic has been coming up quite a but recently so it got me thinking.  What’s it all about and why do this pesky emotion keep creeping up?  Often times it’s in reference to a partner or it could even be cooked up at work.  So why does this happen in the first place?  I have found that it is because you are uncomfortable about something or you don’t feel secure in your present situation.  It doesn’t have anything to do with the other person.  It is an inside job, like most things.  It’s about the choices you are making to feel the way you feel.  How can you take a step back so that you can have some objectivity?  So you can see what is really bothering you.  In what way do you  feel like you are not measuring up?  How can you take a breath and step back?

Also it’s created by a communication line that has been hidden from you.  Once you have addressed it within, you can then talk about it with your partner/work associate. What’s a way of addressing it so you can phrase the question from an “I” standpoint? Like,”I just wanted to talk about something so I won’t continue to stew. Are you… (what’s causing the jealousy)”  Then that line of communication has been addressed.

 

When we allow ourselves to feel that vulnerable feeling and know that it’s ok…. We are then able to shift those catabolic (unhealthy) emotions because this toxic emotion can wreak havoc with the fiber of that working relationship.  So if we acknowledge what’s going on and what’s really at the base of those feelings we can shift them and foster a more healthy union, be it work or intimate.
