Tracy Chapman – The Promise

We love this simple stunning video to the song called The Promise by Tracy Chapman. Coincidentally, Tracy has also returned this year with a brilliant soulful new album called: Our Bright Future .

What’s the Best Way to Handle Rejection?

Barefoot Doctor: 

“The key is to train yourself to stop taking anything personally. Because although it certainly appears personal when someone rejects you personally or professionally, the reality is instead simply that you’re not fitting into the other person’s current agenda. It’s just like being an actor who’s rejected by a casting director because the actor’s face doesn’t fit the picture the casting director had in mind.

Ultimately it all comes down to trusting that each of us has our own destiny and that if someone or something you wanted doesn’t seem to want you back, it’s merely because your destiny has better plans for you.

So every time something doesn’t work out as anticipated or desired, rather than succumb to feeling deflated or dismayed, let yourself feel relieved as it merely means you’re being saved for something that will serve you more effectively on your path to full self-actualization.”

Listen to this uplifting song

Here’s a beautiful uplifting song to help set a joyful beat to your day:

The song is called ‘Soul Purpose‘ and it’s by Nightmares on Wax.

Ever ask yourself if your life is normal or not?

We think the following quote from Paul McKenna really helps in defining what normal is:

“Some people experience hardly any good feelings during the course of a day. Because that’s what they are used to, they think it’s natural. What I point out to them is that a lack of joy in life isn’t natural – it’s normal.

But normal is just another way of saying ‘what usually happens’. In some parts of the world, poverty is normal. Children dying of hunger is normal. Cruelty to animals is normal.

The point is, normal doesn’t mean good, and it certainly doesn’t mean natural. Natural is what you’re designed for – and, simply put, human beings are designed for happiness.”

Does spirituality affect your political choice?

It’s always interesting to see politics filtered through the lense of spiritual thinkers.

At a recent Integral Institute seminar on business leadership, a senior zen teacher asked Ken Wilber, “what do you think of the Republican convention?”, his response is in the video below:

Unleash your natural energy

The Source (unleash your natural energy, power up your health, and feel 10years younger) by: Woodson & Kathleen Merrellis a deeply transformative.

We recommend this book – you will not want to stop reading it because it’s packed with practical insights and tips on how to increase and maintaining your energy resources, gain extra health, reduce stress and live a more fulfilling life.

It is a great guide to help inspire you towards healthy lifestyle changes. The Source program is designed to help reverse the many energy drains that throws your life out of balance and into illness. At the heart of the book is a 21 Day step-by-step plan with multiple energy-boosting tips for each day.

This book is jam packed with practical information like on removing toxins, simple exercise movements, great recipes, etc.

The best bit is that unlike many other holistic books, The Source has grounded information and won’t leave you with that “how do i apply it into real life” feeling- this then helps you to keep both your internal and external self powering forward into great physical and spiritual health.

How to deal with the changing world

There is no doubt that we are all currently at the crossroads of extraordinary change. It almost seems like the universe is shifting. Everyday consciousness is experiencing a total upheaval that is radiating through our entire planet ranging from the environment, politics, global markets to entertainment/etc.

Change now seems to be the constant mantra being directly sent to us from the universe itself. Every layer of our reality is currently being transformed in some shape or form. We are in a time of profound transformation, so it’s essential for us to stay connect to our true inner selves and not be overtaken by the fears that change naturally brings.

Many of us are currently caught up in our day to day dramas of life, we forget that we, as humans, exist on so many different energy levels. It’s vitally important for us to take a little time to surrender to the greater truth that dwells within each of us. It is essential that we not allow fear to get in the way of this deep knowing. Become present to the truth within you…
