Day 27 No Striving Challenge – Create a Soul Anchor

So, you now know (or remember) that you have support, and you realize you need to surrender. Now what?   You need a SOUL ANCHOR – this is something that keeps you anchored in the remembering of the power of who you truly are. I’ve already mentioned my Truth Affirmations which have been pivotal in building my trust.   Another anchor is creating a daily practice. Now don’t get overwhelmed with thinking that means you need to fit yet another thing into your day. Your daily practice can be very simple. Taking only 5 minutes a day to commune with your soul has far reaching impact…and I highly recommend that you find 5 minutes to yourself to do this.   Find a spot that is quiet where you won’t be interrupted, make a conscious connection with your Source (all that takes is your intention to connect), and deep breathe. That’s it.   Sound too simple? I have to say, I thought it was too simple, and that it didn’t really “make anything happen, ” but what I...

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.

I personally have never felt...

Day 21 No Striving Challenge – Warning Signs You’re Disconnected

Connecting with your Spiritual Side is the key to letting go of the striving.   First I want to touch on what I mean by Spiritual. This word can cause resistance because it is linked to certain beliefs. When I refer to spiritual I’m using it to mean knowing our true selves, and living from a place of love and compassion.   Knowing our True Selves also brings with it some questions. What I mean by this is understanding that we are more than a human body. We are all divine beings here to create, experience and enjoy.   “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” ~Pierre Teilhard de Chardin   When we have forgotten this truth, we often feel disconnected. If you've ever felt… Lonely, alone and isolated A roller coaster of intense emotions Tense and anxious about your future Angry, regretful, and unforgiving of your past Overwhelmed, confused, and frustrated Filled with self-doubt & despair A sense of longing for a better way A knowing there has got to be more to...
