Day 24 No Striving Challenge – The Truth of Your Soul

In order to move forward from where you are, and to move beyond the striving, you need to shed the old beliefs, the old stories that were keeping you there, and start to embrace new ones.   When committed to moving away from striving, it’s important to tap into the truth of who you are, as well as Universal Truths (aka Soul Truths). These new beliefs will support you in moving into and embracing more of who you are. When we truly know the power of who we are, the need for striving falls away.   These serve as reminders to help ease the chatter of the ego mind, and to keep us in the flow of life.   Here is a list of Truth Affirmations I use… I don’t need to figure out the “how.” What I focus on expands. We are all Infinite Beings. The answers I seek are within me. We are all interconnected. My thoughts and actions impact the whole. I am the source of my abundance. My higher self is always conspiring for my highest...

Day 23 No Striving Challenge – Gettin’ to the Truth

Since there has been more and more people waking up to the knowledge that we live in an energy based world, and the understanding of Universal Laws such as the Law of Attraction, many people have used this knowledge to manipulate energy to make things happen (ie. Affirmations, pre-pave journaling, visualization, Reiki, etc).   I have certainly used my fair share of strategies and techniques to influence energy, and try to tip the scales in my favour towards what I want. This in of itself in not a bad thing. Our intentions are powerful. However, what I have learned and noticed for myself is that these types of strategies and techniques are often employed coming from a place of striving.   But, when we overcome our inclination to strive these are great tools to support us on our journey.   Affirmations (a positive statement in the present tense affirming our desire) have often been praised in the self-help world as being the key to creating lasting mind-set shifts. I personally have never felt...

Day 20 No Striving Challenge – How Striving Affects You

When in the energy of striving we’re never able to relax into life. Our systems are in over-drive trying to prove our value and worth.   This affects us on 4 levels:   Physically – When we are in an on-going state of striving, eventually our bodies will give the signal that we’ve hit our limit. Our bodies give us messages as to what’s going on in the inside, not only from a traditional medical perspective, but also from a mental, emotional, and spiritual perspective. If you don’t listen to the initial nudges your body is sending you (ie. headache, tension, cold), the messages get louder and louder, until you are forced to listen …usually through the form of drama and trauma.   Mentally – Strivers have a hard time shutting their mind off. The mind is always checking off the to-do list and adding more to it. This creates A LOT of mind chatter and not only keeps us from not being in the moment, but keeps our nervous system...

Tea Time with Trish: Part 3 – What Are We Trying To Escape?

UNEXPECTED GIFTS FROM A GETAWAY As I continue onto Part 3 of the series “Unexpected Gifts From A Getaway, ” little did I know that my trip to Banffwas going to heal me on more levels than just self-care.  If you missed out on Part 1 and Part 2, you can still be caught up to speed.   So many of us struggle through our everyday moments just looking forward to the reprieve we get at the end of the road.  We justify our busyness and stick fast to our determination to be in action…some to the point of even claiming to “like” being busy.  Hmmm?  Really?  That begs the question, “why?”   Finally we hit a tipping point where we need a break and we grasp on tightly to knowing its coming…just hold on and buck up and we’ll get a break soon.   This is exactly what I did.  I had thought, “I’ll fit in one more meeting, or one more activity, and then when I get toBanff, I’ll have a break.”   I was completely...

A New Year; A New You

As I start the New Year, the quote by Wayne Dyer comes to mind “You don’t attract what you want, you attract what you are.”   To start this discussion on “attracting” I will go back to the basics of Universal Laws that state that we are governed by many laws, but the one that we have been hearing a lot about over the last several years is the Law of Attraction – “I attract to my life whatever I give my attention, energy and focus to, whether positive or negative.”    This law is a fact. It’s been based in spiritual practices for centuries, and is now scientifically proven.  If you aren’t already consciously aware of this law…well, that means you’ve been living it by default.   …So, the Good News?  You create your life.  …And, the Bad News?  You create your life.   Yep, after reading this you can no longer place blame anywhere else for what is going on in your life, because the fact is…you created it. ...
