Be kind to all so you can in turn receive kindness.

It’s a no brainer that when we are kind to others that it sparks our own light and causes us to high vibe and feel good about it.

That it causes others to be kind to us in some way because we are sparking that same light in them. That when we are being kind, it means we are happy or at least positively neutral about ourselves.

When we are feeling low or not so happy in ourselves – you will notice you judge more, don’t feel like smiling, pick and moan all the time.

So time to turn it around and be kind to others and most importantly yourself!

Do the world and yourself a favour!

“I choose kind today and Express it in all I do, say and feel. I am kindness”

Till next time… keep walking…

The Journey Holds The Nuggets

The journey holds the nuggets.

It is the journey that gives us our learnings, our pleasure, our pain. It is the joy of getting through all the possible set ups, the step throughs and the aha’s that makes reaching the destination that much sweeter.

The journey can give us our greatest teachings if we allow and open our minds to these nuggets. It never truly is about the destination as much as what we can gain from achieving it and what we did along the way.

The Angels want you to say ” I open my mind and heart to the gold in my journeys”

Till next time… keep walking your spiritual path xx

Spiritually Malnourished

Issues from the Heart

Image result for spiritually malnourished

In an era where being health conscious is the order of the day the spiritual man is often neglected. The focal point of being healthy is on the physical man, while the theocentric part of man is left famished. Keen attention is directed to what should be consumed and its quantity. While this is good and important, I dare to say that we have missed the mark as it is not what enters a man that defiles him but what comes out. As such much focus should be given to the spiritual man.

The Bible characterizes humans as being able to display two types of reactions, namely the characteristics of the fruit of the spirit or the manifestation of the works of the flesh. Whichever is fed the more will be the strongest and more dominant in an individual. Although we all like to wear a mask and act like we are the…

Being Enlightened

Aria-Bella Rises

enlightened

There can be a misconception around being enlightened that I want to clear up.

Being enlightened does not mean that the ego shit we all experience just simply isn’t there anymore. That all of a sudden the crap we used to live like is suddenly gone never to appear again. And we can float around thinking everything and everyone is just wonderful.

If anything, it can mean the opposite, as sometimes when you are on the path of evolving – Ego and all its wonderful buddies pick up their game and try even harder to keep you held back and in the old claws way of being.

The beauty of seeing past that veil though is being able to RECOGNISE that this shit is happening and being able to do something about it.

So many cannot see anything wrong in their way of being, acting, living etc. it is just…

I Adrift in my Ego Human self

Aria-Bella Rises!

Aria-Bella Rises

I have been,for the last week or so, allowing my Ego or my human side as I like to call it run the show. I seemed to have forgotten that strong ever loving spiritual side of me that can get through anything and instead let old reprogramming come up and seize the day. Panic attacks, low vibes, unworthiness, the list is pretty endless, have all snuck in while I sat back on the couch and allowed it. Starting the old ‘woe is me’ victim soundtrack (cue the violins).
I kept getting whispers and nudges from my guides and angels, but at first I was too far gone in struggling against it all that I refused to listen.

Then all of a sudden during each bout of nastiness, I stopped. And I listened. Really listened to what they were trying to tell me. I’d bless and thank what was happening to…

Message to my Ego

Aria-Bella Rises!

Aria-Bella Rises

ego

I have realised I have been quite a meanie to my Ego. Blaming her for most bad things and whenever I have a human moment. I bag her in my blog and then expect her to treat me nicely, which let’s face it, would you be nice if blamed and shamed all the time?

My panic has been bad this week and it was only when Super J pointed out just how mean I have been to her that I realised Ego was putting on a show because of my hateful words.

So this is a blog to my Ego, a nice blog!

I want to take the time to Thank my Ego for being there all of my life. For protecting me from things she deemed unsafe and for putting me on the right path when I could have gone many other unsavoury ways. She has always been a…

Cracking the Code: Spirit

Meet the Peaceful Practice!!

(as always I appreciate comments, but please be considerate to the original writer and leave comments with them as well. Thnx. Danny)

Spirit is an often overlooked part of health since many physicians do not talk to their patients about it. However, it is an essential component for having balance and power.

What Do I Mean by Spirit?

Spirit is the energy that powers your life.

cracking the code spirit

This energy gives your life meaning and makes you feel fulfilled and happy. 

Our daily occupation and professions should also be meaningful and give us a sense of joy because without this meaning, our health suffers. 

I enjoy being a physician but I wanted to be a force to transform my patients’ lives and not simply hand them prescriptions.

My search for answers on how to meaningfully help patients in my own profession led me to begin writing about integrative medicine.

Being able to give others a way of improving their health using many different and interesting ways has given my spirit a whole new boost. I therefore believe…

How to Find Your Creative Spark and Ignite Your Life!

Several years ago I remember having a conversation with a friend about food.  What types of exotic foods we had eaten, which were our favorites and what we disliked.  I recall my part of the conversation being short as it has only been in recent years that I have moved off of the southern delights of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, fried okra and corn; on the cob or off!

But what is so vivid in my memory for some reason is my friends challenge to me to step out and try new things. And it was out of that conversation that I realized that I loved broccoli. I had spent the majority of my adult life explaining to people when presented with the veggie that I didn’t like it. I can’t recall why I didn’t like broccoli nor why I had never tried it since I was a kid.

And as a matter of fact the memory of first tasting it and deciding I didn’t like it escapes me. But none the less I had decided in my mind that I did not like broccoli therefore broccoli was not a food option.  I am thankful now that many years ago I tried broccoli and realized I loved it as now it is one of my favorite vegetables.

This veggie situation got me to thinking about the dilemma that some have when starting to design a life of success.  Step one is deciding on what you want, what you have desire for, and stating it to the universe.  But how do you begin when you don’t know what you have desire for?

So here’s my answer: you have to experiment in life to determine what might release desire in your heart. Just as I stepped out and gave broccoli a new place in my life, you must be open to new things in order to find passion and desire!  Until I started writing I did not realize how much I loved it.  It has become more than something to do, often times it is my therapy, my release from stress. It releases in me a creative juice that permeates all parts of my life.  I think we treat our life sometimes like I treated broccoli. We don’t know what we will like because we close ourselves off to the opportunities!

There is true desire and passion inside of every single human being. Some have a desire to serve and help people. Some have a desire for business and money. Some have a desire to write. Some have a desire to draw. Some have a desire to fly. What you must do is retrain your thinking, start saying yes to more experiences in life that will open up the creative spark inside of you and awaken your desire. (If you haven’t watched Yes Man starring Jim Carey do so).  Think of life as a Chinese buffet bar.

And when you are standing in front of that buffet bar with your empty plate don’t go automatically to the things that you already know you like.  Fill your plate up with things that you have never tasted before or have passed over.  I am going to promise you some of those items on that plate you very well may not like. But, you may find one new item that you had never given the opportunity before and it may become your new favorite Chinese buffet bar item!

There is such a big, beautiful world in which we live, full of amazing and spectacular things to do and experience.  Yet, we sit in our cubicle and type away.  And that might be okay for work, but that is not okay for LIFE!!

from the movie Office Space

from the movie Office Space

Life was not meant to be lived in a cubicle. And many of us struggle with desire because our life has become so normal and ordinary, that we haven’t taken the time to expand ourselves by expanding our life experiences! Our routines have numbed us to the amazing world we live in; and many of us live with dying spirits.

So, step one to developing desire is to get outside of your “world.”  Go to the park and kick a ball, experience being a kid again by finger painting, make a mess, cut your own hair, take a picture, paint a picture, skip a stone, go fishing, fly a kite, get grass stains on your jeans, play in the rain, lay in the grass and watch clouds, go hiking….Scream at the top of your lungs and sing a song.

Break that shell and declare yourself to the world!  Once you have awakened the creative spark, finding your passion is right around the corner!

Just a thought for a Thursday morning…
