Living an authentic life

A great number of people muddle through the emotional backwaters of their lives. Quite often they deny their true feelings altogether, which is the root cause of stagnated emotional energy and much pain. Are you one of them?

Many of us learn our patterns of behaviour from a young age - and are often playing old recorded tapes that are no longer serving us.

Don't say "I'm alright", when you're clearly not... notice when there are lots of stressors negatively impacting your life and allow yourself to acknowledge that you might need help.  

Realise that "it's okay not to be okay", and that you might benefit from seeking advice from seeking out spiritual counselling, energy healing, and/or professional guidance.

Your family and friends may not have the awareness or experience to offer you a balanced perspective. Even if they do, they may lack the detachment necessary to offer impartial advice.

When you get help, don't expect your spiritual counsellor or energy healer to clean up your emotional fallout. Don't falsely project all your negativity, and shirk emotional responsibility. You must learn to look within to see the root cause of imbalance - the outer is simply a reflection of what is within.

The key is to take full responsibility for how you are feeling, in this moment, and learn to transmute any negative emotion into positive emotion. 

Focus your attention on where you want to go, then commit to living it!

It's important to live an authentic life.

Do you know how to pray effectively?

Do you know how to pray effectively? How long is it since you prayed as part of your everyday activities?

Certainly, prayer is an ever present help in time of trouble but you do not have to wait for contrasting situations to appear to make prayer an integral and constructive part of your life.

Prayer is, quite simply, a heartfelt request to your own connection to Non Physical source - it has nothing to do with churches, or mosques, or temples.

By asking Source, your request is granted, every time. You just need to unite mentally and emotionally with the good you wish to embody, and the creative powers of your inner being will respond accordingly.

Do you trust that you are part of a Greater Intelligence, and that you are being heard? Not only heard, but listened to. Not only listened to, but cared for.

And so it is...

Are you addicted to your mobile phone?

Conscious Living Tip: Keep your mobile switched off whilst travelling to or from work at least one day this week.

Ask yourself, does it really need to be on all the time? Do you really need to check your emails, text messages, voicemails, tweets and other messages so frequently? (Maybe you do... but I doubt it).

On your way to or from work try smiling (yes, people may think you're weird, especially if you do this during the rush hour commute in London, for example), then try smiling at someone else (be genuine and you may get a smile back, if they haven't called for help!), look out the window of your bus or train with fresh eyes (can you see the window with all those other people crammed in front of you??)... if you can, try making sure you walk through a park or green, and inhale some long, deep, good-feeling breaths... really be present.

Basically, keep your mobile off for as long as you can. Watch yourself "needing" to switch it on (it will happen!)... watch the habit and let it go.

Enjoy the feeling of being free.

Switch your mobile on later, when you feel you want to. Or perhaps you really need to check your messages/tweets/emails now?
