Gift Giver – What’s Your Gift? It’s Your Purpose to Know!

I felt the energy expand as I was packaging this special gift for a little girl. I knew it was going to bring her so much joy. The joy was actually welling up in me in anticipation. It occurred to me that we all are gift givers, literally every second of our lives. Every thought, every action, every interaction and even every frown or smile are gifts that echo energy out into the world. All we have to do is look at when a child is born, and we immediately feel the gift of their presence. Every human being is a pulse of life that is naturally and constantly outpouring the gifts of life energy. The big question is… What’s your gift that you are giving the world this very second? Is your mind hostile ground? Are you constantly tearing yourself and others down? Are angry or antagonistic words your gift to others? What’s amazing with the mirroring of gift giving is that I felt the joy expanding in me for this little girl’s gift. Angry exchanges work the same way joyful exchanges work. When someone gives you their gift of anger and if you receive that gift, you will actually feel anger and its similar companion of unhappiness, expand inside you. And hence, we have the recycling of the same anger energy. What can be liberating is to take full responsibility for the kind of people we want to be in our lives. We are the chooser of the gifts we are giving to the world. Thoughts of hope, thoughts of love, and thoughts of understanding begin with...

Everyone Has Their Limp

Everyone Has Their Limp I walk with a limp. It’s an interesting limp, subtle yet evident. Often times people who don’t know me can’t quite pinpoint the cause. The hip? A recent injury? The knee? The ankle? A prothesis? It’s uniquely mine. We all have our limps. It might not show up in our walk that displays our history with our structural bodies. It shows up uniquely to everyone in its combination of circumstances that have formed aspects of how we live, interact and orient in our lives. Every one of us has areas that are strong - abilities, ways, talents or traits that come easily through our own innate gifts or natural survival instincts. Some of these strengths might really be serving us, some of these adapted survival instincts could be costing us. For example, those of us who have developed strong independence for survival might also have trouble being a good receiver. I am a big possibility person. Yes, I believe there are always more possibilities for ourselves available for ourselves than we realize. I think we often discount our own possibilities too quickly, or we give our power away to others and accept their version of possibilities for ourselves. A couple years ago when I got a new prosthetic limb with advanced technology in my foot, I went to the physical therapist to help smooth out my gait (reduce my limp) as much as possible. Three powerful things happened when I took physical therapy. One, I was able to be full weight bearing on my right leg for 2.5 seconds which is something I had not...

Harness the Power of the Pause! Magical!

I hope this weekend you give yourself some allotment of your magical power of the pause. I know I am. So much energy and changes have been circling in my life almost non-stop for weeks. Jack returned home after being gone for two months this weekend. Other than posting/emailing my radio show, I am using this weekend to unplug, pause and connect. I am doing all those ordinary things that bring joy to me and my loved ones that don’t require a screen. Takes no genius to quickly observe that everything around says… more, more more! Do more. Try more. Get more. Have more. Be more. Yet, we live in a time where more people are frazzled, stressed and depressed within this cultural frenzy of non-rest and always needing more. Get energy. Get answers. Get clarity. Get the authentic power that is available in your moments of the pause. Pick an hour, a day or whatever amount of time you are able to pause and unplug. You will feel some inspiring magic arise from giving yourself some stillness. Join the conversation and invoke your power of the...
