4 Aspects to Obtaining Higher Consciousness

What is consciousness?

Consciousness is the state of being awake and aware to one’s surroundings.


What does it mean to live unconsciously?

The unconscious mind is a shadow of the “real” mind it’s not identifiable less flexible, complex, controlling, deliberative and action-oriented than its counterpart (the conscious mind).

– Paraphrased from https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2440575/

To live unconsciously is to act on the emotions we don’t understand, when we do this we give away our power and life-energy acting out of routine, patterns and old conditioning.

We tend to live according to our “current feeling” rather than seeing life as it is and working towards the bigger picture.


What is higher consciousness?

Higher consciousness is the consciousness of a higher self, transcendental reality or God. It is “the part of the human being that is capable of transcending animal instincts.

– Excerpt from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Higher_consciousness#CITEREFBunge2001


How do we influence higher consciousness?

We can influence higher consciousness by understanding ourselves and our place in time and space. We must become aware of all the conditional patterns that have influenced our behavior up until this point.

We need to learn discipline and control in order to train the mind and body to abide to our higher self.

To reach a higher consciousness we need to transcend the current circumstances… we need to stop living through the senses, stop living through emotion and rather live through our objective intellect and spiritual needs.


How do you transcend your current circumstances?

We transcend our current circumstanced through a process of self-actualization.

Through understanding ourselves fully, spiritually and physically we are better able to see clearly and better able to work along side the laws of nature rather than against them.


What is the process of self-actualization?

We can build awareness by challenging our trials and tribulations with a can-do attitude, only through giving yourself fully can we learn best from experience. Knowledge is power and knowing thyself is the beginning of all wisdom.


How do we begin the process of self-actualization?

We begin by realizing we’re human just like everyone else. We must also realize the world is full of chaos and we can’t always make sense of everything; we need to learn to control what we can and to let go of what we can’t.

The process of self-actualization begins the moment we accept ourselves as who we are and begin to release the negativity that has plagued us up until this point in time.

The good and the bad of the past have come together to make this very moment in time, accept it and give in to the moment. Focus on creating memorable moments so tomorrow’s moment can be harvested better than today’s.

The process begins when we start taking initiative and responsibility for the direction of our lives.


I still don’t know where to begin, where do I start?

Start by determining what it is you truly want in life if money was no object. Where would your soul guide you if you weren’t tied down by your cash resources?

Okay, I determined what I want… but I still haven’t figured myself out…

Honestly dreams are dreams and can sometimes becoming true realizations but until we are able to distinguish our deeper reasons for these dreams they will direct us and cause mayhem on our psyche.

One thing we need to truly come to realize within ourselves is life isn’t about the destination, its about the journey. Embrace your journey and you’ll have arrived at your destination. 

Most of us are to focused on the past and future leading us to our biggest flaw; emotional-based thinking. We need to focus on this current moment with our full awareness and continue honoring each moment remaining fully present to grow as individuals.


Understanding the Flaws in Emotional-Based Thinking

Living in a reaction-based consciousness we tend to hold in various emotions simultaneously, these emotions identify themselves when we feel threatened. Most of the time when we get into this defensive state we can only identify ourselves with the strongest emotion out of the bunch, usually anger or sadness.

We are “unconscious” to our emotional thinking. When we become emotional it’s not an instance of one emotion becoming to strong to contain, it’s more of an instance of how our various emotions react with one another.

More often then not we’re feeling more than one emotion at a time and this can becoming confusing to us on the conscious level, which causes us to react at times on surface level and not fully understanding why.

Higher consciousness begins with discipline first and foremost.

Discipline is everything; the road to liberation is a dogfight that will knock you down time after time again… not everyone will be able to live and find what is known as “Christ consciousness” some of us live on low levels, others on high ones.

The frequency in which we “be” and frequently reside in will determine our circumstances, how we handle them and how they introspectively change us.

Only through a commitment of excellence are we able to find our own strongest levels achieving clarity and true direction.


Overcoming Subjectivity

To live in higher consciousness we must fight to see the objective truth. There is a lot of man-made deception with the intent on keeping humankind focused on basic needs.

Keeping the mass population focused on these lower level needs takes the attention away from things that could truly benefit our nature and overall existence.


Personal Growth and the Road to Achievement

Read, read, and read… there’s so much to understand about human nature and existence itself. Anyone who knows anything knows there’s always more to learn.

Find a way that you work on yourself so that you can add value to others. Find your beliefs and allow others to find theirs even if ideas may vary from your own; we all need to come to our own realizations and need to express ourselves without fear of being judged.

Start learning about personal development, check out business gurus like Brian Tracy, Jim Rohn, Earl Nightingale and Chris Widener, listen to audio books, podcasts or if you don’t have many books google for PDFs versions of whatever it is you’re interested in; find anything that inspires you and let it do its thing.


4 Key Aspects of Higher Consciousness

Thinking outside of the box, outside of labels and outside of predetermined patterns.

Transcendentalism – the belief that man is at his best when independent, and not part of organized religion or politics. To discover the nature of reality by investigating the process of thought rather than the objects of sense experience.

– Definition from http://www.yourdictionary.com/transcendentalism

Don’t cling to strongly to one idea, we are flawed thinkers and constantly make breakthroughs with new paradigm shifts. What you believe at this very moment may not be exactly what you believe in the future so don’t criticize others because before you know it you’ve become a hypocrite yourself. We all make mistakes and need to embrace the inner journey, don’t force others, focus on what you can control.

Commitment, initiative, releasing the negative and influencing the positive.

We feel lost or happy usually based on the extent of control we have over our own lives. Choosing to live through our senses typically comes with consequences physical in nature such as depleting our resources that could have been allocated to a better cause.

Living through senses creates the cycle of dependency and inner struggle which creates more conflict and barriers to happiness.

When we’re in this state of low self-esteem we tend to attract others in the same state which can create a faulty support system where everyone likes to see each other lose. With this feeling of lesser worth and inferiority we tend to feel envious and defeated when others mention their accomplishments. As a unconscious or conscious manipulative act using peer pressure and our influence we tend to hold people in the same position; we like change as long as it doesn’t affect us to much.

Finding silence, transcending energy through meditation, prayer or reflection.

A big part of finding silence is accepting our thoughts and ourselves as we are. We are all that we are, it is all that it is and if it’s meant to be it’ll be.

We must see life and reality not as something that happens to us but something that happens through us, and how we react will spawn and re-spawn through out our lives.

Choose to find your calmness. Choose to give time to your concealed thoughts, choose to see your thoughts but to realize you are not your mind but an eternal consciousness that cannot be scientifically shown as existing within the human body.

We are not trapped by our thoughts. What we generally do, however, is create thoughts that trap us.” Joshua David Stone

Those who carry the biggest burden have the greatest message with the greatest influence.

Choose to live life with a sense of passion, determine your values/principles and address what truly matters.

Live according to the greater good and praise all who see worth in you. Choose to add value to others, aim to ignite the ascension of others spiritually, and they will come back ten times stronger to influence you in your own endeavors.

Focus on good karma, do unto others as you wish to be treated yourself… choose to see the good and help people grow.

Reaching higher consciousness isn’t easy, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth it. We all must find our own virtues to happiness, all I ask is we all do our best to encourage positive change; peace, love and positivity.

10 Inner Dimensions of Self-Worth

Many of us look outside ourselves with intent on finding things that will make us happy. Sadly this isn’t where true happiness resides; happiness comes from within not “without”. If you’re not happy with yourself in your current circumstances then nothing will make you happy until you flip the switch and decide to be happy with what you’ve got.

Living a selfish life wrecks havoc on our self-esteem and our self-worth; although our esteem may be at an all time low this doesn’t mean it can’t be re-awoken and soar to new heights.

Even if our circumstances are brutal and hard to rise above we must always remember these inner principles to being and improving self-worth:

  1. Strive for better  Each day there are winners and losers, do you consider today a win in the grand scheme of things? Did you step closer to your goals or fall further away?
  2. Push past exhaustion – Just because the elements are not perfect doesn’t mean effort isn’t necessary. Push through doubts, exhaustion and any necessary conflict.
  3. Recognize needs verses wants – Be deliberate with how you utilize your resources. Avoid any vicious cycles of coping with stress, battle your conditions and elicit better (positive) ways to cope.
  4. Recognize workplace success vs. a successful life – Sometimes to have a successful life we must abide by the roles we’ve been given. Don’t squander your opportunities; they may not be ideal but honor each moment with awareness and see where life takes you.
  5. Recognize flawed patterns – Whether these flawed patterns are our negative thinking, over thinking or idolizing material possessions; choose to let go. It is what it is; manage what you’ve been given.
  6. See the good in others – Keep conversations light-hearted, don’t dig into pasts or try to make sense of everything. Validate feelings and give your honest perspective, everyone has a voice that needs to be heard.
  7. See the bigger picture
    a) Everyone wants to belong, everyone is human, and we’re all the same with a few subtle differences. Don’t let differences divide, let differences influence positive change.
    b) Everyone’s got their own problems; running away is never the solution, and not everyone copes well.
  8. Understand we all have bad days – Okay so today wasn’t perfect, that doesn’t mean we have to beat ourselves up. We all have off days but don’t let that discourage you. It’s not easy but try and wake up every morning with a sense of bliss thinking “nothing could be better than it is right now.”
  9. Being the victim is a choice – Attitude is everything. Bring a positive light for all to see but only confide in those who show true loyalty.
  10. Everything happens for a reason – Don’t bask in your failures; mistakes are stepping stones to success. Brush that dust of your shoulder and choose to challenge life.

Ultimately effort is between you and you. If you’re not willing to sacrifice something to get to where you want be honest with yourself. Like stated above “nothing could be better than it is right now”, if you’re not happy with yourself how do you expect to be happy with others and the world around you?


Self-love is everything; don’t forget your worth.

Here’s some age old wisdom: Love yourself and treat others as you wish to be treated.

W.O.L.F – Warrior of Liberty and Freedom

There are moments of our lives where we feel as though we are in the spotlight… recognition comes, friends, we seem to have all the support we could ever want or need. Then there’s those moments where we’ve fallen. Those moments of struggle where we really need somebody and there’s no one to be found. Sometimes in these moments of struggle we see the true reality which the universe has brought forth.

Through struggle we are able to see on a genuine level who adds true value to your life. Some people are manipulative sociopaths who will try to fool you by any means necessary; not everyone looks to add value to your life, most people are out for themselves looking to get ahead by any means necessary. The truth is most people are superficial and have their own agenda.

Life is short, we’re supposed to be happy but some people need to get off the hamster wheel and realize what’s actually taking place in the grand scheme of things.

On a deep level psychological level people of society’s lives have been predestined. So many people are living according to the invisible script that has been written for them. It’s sad because those who choose to take the “unscripted” path tend to be the one’s who are shunned for their differences.

Those who choose to live the “unscripted” life have a hard road sometimes no one will have faith in one’s vision but the individual has to keep pushing and believing one day will be his day. This is why I classify it as the wolf mentality, life’s tough but we’ve got to be tougher.

Code of the Wolf

Protect your pack,
show no fear,
respect the elder,
teach the young,
lead your companions,
survive each day,
hunt your enemies,
howl to a new tomorrow,
explore the unknown,
adapt to the environment,
demonstrate no weakness,
never back down
and leave your mark.

Raphael Vieira

Why is the W.O.L.F classified as the black sheep of society?

Not only does the wolf have to establish values important to him and his pack but the wolf also has to be strong, fearless and never back down in the face of challenge.

The wolf mentality builds a strong positive presence leaving others in awe and wonder; a fierce mentality can be intimidating to those who live according to life’s predestined script.wolf 4

You know you’re doing it right if people begin hating you for no reason what-so-ever. People will begin questioning your story, your path, and your morals that got you to where you are now; that’s life. There’s always going to be naysayers and people who doubt but it’s up to you to determine your course and sometimes that means moving against the current.

Those who refuse to take action will make excuses and build reasoning for those who managed to accomplish what it was they set their mind to. Let people rationalize their failures all they want, don’t let it affect your being.

People always have their own two-cents when it comes to someone else’s progress, most people will minimize the transformational efforts from a place of envy and hate. Misery loves company and these people will say anything to keep you where you are at this very moment. They don’t want you to improve it’s of no benefit to them. Your improvement only makes them feel less competent and resentful of their own life.

Even when you have nothing your attitude is that one thing still under your control. Don’t be vengeful or jealous of others; choose to focus your energy on building something for yourself. Don’t live in envy and resentment choose to focus your attention on the now and commit to something worth completing.

  • Choose to build; build your knowledge, build your wealth, build your reputation, build your mastermind group, build your network.
  • Choose to create; create positive change, create strong values, create a legacy, create hope and a course of direction for your life.

At the end of the day we have to be accountable for ourselves. It’s up to us the legacy we decide to leave behind as individuals and as a collective. Be the role model and lead by example. Let people make their own decisions just offer value and direction, give it time but gradually those who support you will share your word and follow.

Ego & The Path of Enlightenment

The Path of Liberation

The stories we tell ourselves play a big part on how we live our lives. Our stories can be those of success or of failure, of love or of hate, greed and envy. The stories we tell ourselves define our reputation, they define our perspective and they define how we interact with other people and how we go about our daily lives. The stories we tell ourselves whether deliberate or not are reflected back to us by our subconscious mind.

Whether these stories finish happily ever after or not is forecasted by the narrator. The narrator, oblivious to the force his story imposes draws himself into constant conflict until able to tame the egoic self. Until we begin to live purposefully and for the greater good we will continuously fall into the ego trap.

Understanding The Ego

The ego is the starting point of the self; it’s consciousness that ensures security and survival.  The ego is the part of self that ensures your individualistic needs are met. Growing up we quickly came to realize which behaviour resulted in getting what we wanted. This is where the ego is devised from.

When needs aren’t met for an individual they subconsciously slip into the egoic state(old behavioural patterns) in order to manipulate their way to get whats desired.


 Living with the Egoic Self

Sometimes we feel hopeless like nothing we can do will help us out of our situation we think to ourselves “why try? I’ll lose anyways”, “it’s only going to make the pain worse in the end”, “it won’t make a difference”.

A lot of us live contently with our self-harming behaviour and don’t see it any other way. We begin to feel lost in self-doubt and analyzing ourselves based on our past attempts. We think, “well I tried to quit 100 times before in the past, whats the point trying again?”

Its sad but this is the truth about where most of us are at in our lives. We’ve decided we’d be happier to live with our struggles rather than face up and acknowledge our destructive habits. We’ve decided “I’ll wait till the time is right, there’s no reason to change right now”.  Waiting for a sign from God to help make the life-changing decision.

Lets be honest if you’re waiting for a sign from God to make you start acknowledging your finances and health you’ve got it all wrong. All you’re going to get is a big reality check. The sign you’re going to get is that you neglected control of your life for to long. The lesson of the ego is humility and it’s only a matter of time before you learn.


The Purpose of the Ego

The ego is an illusion, a state of mind some live in yet are completely unaware. The ego is a plane of consciousness, its a way of thinking. The ego is “I”; “I this..”,”I that..”, it’s a focus putting all attention on ourselves. Living through the ego we are less informed and more self-privileged. We think only in terms of our own survival.

Living through the ego we become blinded with clouded judgement, unintentionally leading ourselves to our own demise. More often then not we must embrace the path of the ego before we can reach the path of liberation. We must become self-aware of the ego to rid the curse of distorted vision.


Frequencies of Being

3 Planes of Consciousness

The Egoic Self – plane of consciousness based on personal history and the stories we tell ourselves. Fueled by material desires and self-sabotaging habits. Oblivious and ignorant to the consequences we continue to live in suffering of the past or demand for the future.

Liberated self – plane of consciousness free from attachment, living amongst abundant resources. Lives in the current moment with a calm quiet mind and natural flow. Accepts what is, lives with love in heart and compassion for others.

Duality  a plane of consciousness where an individual has liberated values but partakes in self-sabotaging behavior. Duality is the middle ground of the enlightened and egoic self. An individual will have illusions of enlightenment yet will confuse behavior because true values have still yet to be established.


Transformations in becoming the enlightened self.

Learning Acceptance.
The enlightened self learns to release suffering and accept what is. It is what is is, I am what I am. The first transition step to becoming the enlightened self is realizing the things you can change and understanding the things you can’t.

Building self-confidence & self-esteem.
Releasing of suffering means release from its destructive counterparts. Learning to detach from our material desires we learn to build our self-confidence rather than destroy it. We must learn to let go of hate, jealousy, envy and regret; competition should be healthy inspire us not hinder our ability.

“Jealousy lives upon doubts. It becomes madness or ceases entirely as soon as we pass from doubt to certainty.” – Francois de la Rochefoucauld

Living through love, submission, awe, optimism.
How you treat others is a reflection of how you feel about your self. Once we learn to accept ourselves we can then begin to live in a new light.

From escaping earth to creating heaven on earth.
Learning to love ourselves and others we begin to live with a more honorable & graceful presence. We begin to live in a way that’s true to ourselves and our values rather than hiding from fear of rejection.

Concern for others.
Once we begin to forgive ourselves for our past(s) and relieve ourselves of the burden of the future we can then begin to understand where true happiness comes from. Being content and happy with ourselves we can begin to put forth our effort outwards in a more constructive way. Less fixated on status we are more inclined to help those less fortunate.

Thinking collectively & objectively.
Once removed from our isolated ways of thinking are able to grasp new ideas allowing us to think with a more logical and objective approach. We begin to analyze from different perspectives rather than having only one way of seeing. We become more in tuned with our emotional intelligence and more skillful engaging with others.

Focusing on inner change.
Thinking collectively we come to grips with the idea that the earth is in chaos and we need to do our part to bring back order. On the path to enlightenment we must become more self-aware of ourselves and of the damage we are inflicting to the earth. We need to begin to take a more mindful approach to living.

Focusing on happiness and fufillment.
Once we move away from our subjective universe of thought we begin to understand our feelings more clearly. We begin to understand the importance of having fun and how critical it is when stress. Fun is a key component to happiness and without it life quickly becomes dull. What better way to help the world, helping the world to appreciate fun, always be in a good mood and enjoy life wherever you are.

Thinking logically.
Thinking logically we better understand our own feelings and are better able move past our own limiting beliefs. No longer controlled by forces of anger we are better able to set emotions aside or utilize them whenever necessary to capitalize on opportunity. Fear can be paralyzing if you let it, think to yourself “what do you have to lose?” and strive to take the right approach.

Becoming mindful and alert of our unconscious patterns.
As we become more grounded and self-aware we are better able to analyze our behaviour and to deem what may be beneficial or consequential in the long run. Uncovering unconscious patterns we allow ourselves to better understand the choices we make and how they affect us mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Building willpower and delaying gratification.
Uncovering unconscious patterns we become more adapt and able to reconfigure the triggers that cause them. We become more conscious of the negative influences and can begin to monitor behaviour. Living consciously we can begin to treat ourselves to these desires moderately as a means of rewards for accomplishing goals

Striving to live free from attachment.
Becoming more conscious and aware of our influences and attachment we can encourage a healthy structure through moderation and balance. Stuck in a realm of burden we must free ourselves of addictive behaviour which depletes all our resources and diminishes our life force. We live in a era plagued by temptation and it’s not easy to fight the current but without doing so we remain stuck in our patterns of resentment analyzing the opportunity lost. Remember, balance.

Living in the current moment.
Free from attachment we are able to move past our own flawed thinking patterns. Caught up in loops we are constantly dwelling on the opportunity we’ve forgone and we constantly resent ourselves. Free from attachment we are better able to address the concerns of the present moment. We become less distracted and better able to focus on actions that improve our overall quality of living.

Maturity and Growth.
Free from the grips of attachment we are less distracted by toys and material possessions. In our child-like state we are narcissistic sociopaths manipulating others to get what it is we want. In our child-like state we are only focused on feeding the senses. We are focused on what “feels good” without thought into the consequences. Once we begin to understand every action has a consequence we can better improve our decision making and critical thinking skills. Relieved from distractions we are able to focus on the journey of personal growth.

Grounded with reality.
Free from attachment the past, future and material possessions we begin to see what really matters; the now. Gathering facts living through universal truth we are able to break free from the chains of illusion and live in a more natural way. We begin to understand our anger, the destruction it causes and the pain it brings. We begin to understand and become one with human nature, forgiving others and not faulting them for their mistakes.

Finding inner peace.
From Jekyll and Hyde to the modern Ghandi, duality is the battle of personalities and motives. Relieving the wickedness we begin to find calmness in ones self. Living with duality we can strive to do well for so long before the ego diminishes any progress that’s been made. Living free of burden and attachment – letting go of pain – we can then choose to begin the healing process finding a structure that supports our underlying needs.

A supportive inner voice.
When the going gets tough the tough get going, your inner voice should be one of support; your biggest cheerleader. Choose to fight through your pain and embrace the healing process. Manage your thoughts, feelings and emotions in a way thats conducive to getting things done.  If you begin to beat yourself up and doubt yourself step back and remember your reasoning behind pursuing the action. Think logically, law of averages we will only get better with practice, if you’re to frustrated at the moment take a break and begin again with a calm mind.

Begin building power for yourself.
From constant nagging and emphasizing the negative in everything to accepting challenges and rising up to the occasion. Rather than having low-self esteem dwelling on everything that isn’t begin to take action and improve your current situation. Hard work pays off mentally and physically when your applying yourself constructively. Small accomplishments become huge feats with a little bit of patience and perseverance. Have faith in yourself, have confidence but be honest with yourself and how much effort you’re willing to put in.

A strong sense of willpower.
Learning to love ourselves again we must begin to abide by our word. Our word to ourselves and our word to others, our word is our reputation. Don’t make promises you can’t keep, follow through on everything you said you do. Breaking the pattern of self-sabotaging behaviour is difficult. Just like building muscle, your will is developed through action, practice and training. You’ll have your mind on your side before you know it.

Living in a tranquil state.
From never being able to enjoy yourself to seeing the beauty in anything that comes along. Understand you can only take action when the opportunity presents itself. If you have lingering thoughts of what you need to get done write them down. Don’t let thoughts linger longer than they have to. Be honest with yourself in regards to how much effort you’re going to put in. Schedule blocks of time to work hard and to relax; realize one is not as great without the other but together they can become self-mastery.

Releasing negative thoughts.
Getting into the process of writing things down frees us and allows quietness from overbearing thoughts. Understand you are not your thoughts, you are the observer of your thoughts, nothing else. If an unnecessary thought persists choose to release it and allow other thoughts to flow. You can only take action when the opportunity presents itself, jot down your thoughts and focus on the opportunities of the present moment.

Open & willing to accept posibilities.
Unwilling to accept help we become malicious and vengeful, willing to accept feedback we can better reflect, analyze and grow. Forget about fear of failure, accept humility. Try your best and don’t get down on yourself when you make mistakes. Mistakes are experience and through experience we gather wisdom. Choose to look at life with a beginner’s mind, when the students ready the teacher will appear. Be ready for the lesson.

Being humble & able to accept humility.
At peace with humility we come to terms that we don’t know everything. The more we know, the more we know we don’t. Don’t be ignorant or narrow-minded, be honest with yourself and others with what you know and what you don’t.

“It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels.” – Saint Augustine

Being compassionate & understanding.
Able to accept humility we grow to understand rather than reacting to circumstances. We understand we can’t be the best at everything but if we are willing to put the time and effort we can always improve. The practice of self-mastery may consume you but the hard work and patience helps us to build a strong character. We’re all in pain and struggle with hardships, some people are just better at adapting and coping.

Minding manners and a graceful presence.
With insight into pain and struggle we develop our emotional intelligence and become more aware of other’s difficulties. We become more mindful of the burdens we impose on others and realize that we can reduce stress by acting with a calm graceful demeanor. No longer blaming others for their faults we become more patient and analyze less.

Remember we live in a mad world and everyone has to find a way to be happy with themselves whether you understand it or not, let it be. Inform and help others but remember we all value things differently, don’t get attached to an outcome. Don’t pour your beliefs down other’s throats, accept we’re all unique.

“Respect for ourselves guides our morals, respect for others guides our manners.” – Laurence Sterne

Becoming minimalistic.
Having a more grounded view of reality and a better understanding of human nature we can better address our needs. Being able to move past the ego, on a much more elevated state of awareness we become more concerned with the legacy we leave rather than our overall consumption. With the focus on the true self rather than the ego we can nurture ourselves mentally and emotionally without excessive spending. We begin to see the value in less and gain an appreciation for anything more.

Balance and moderation in all things.
From torpedoing behaviour that’s extremely self-destructive to accepting everything as it comes and allowing the universe to flow naturally. Living within a healthy structured environment we are more adapt to choose balance over extremist self-harming behaviour. We begin to understand lasting change doesn’t happen overnight and in learning so, we embrace the virtue of patience.

Living constructively.
Understanding transformation change doesn’t happen overnight we are more stable working towards the long term results. You reap what you sough; hard work pays off even if you don’t see the benefits immediately. There’s a season for sowing and a season for reaping but never are the two done in the same season. Be patient in waiting for the picture to develop, just know you’ll get there eventually if you just stick to the plan set forth.

Reflective pauses & meditation.
Understanding our consuming/overstimulating behaviour we must be deliberate in finding quiet time away from distractions. Pauses allow our progress to catch up with us, it allows us to internalize our experiences. Finding time to meditate alone or with others can go long ways helping us to acquire wisdom and better understand ourselves.

“Quiet the mind and the soul will speak.” – Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati

Feeling hopeful & one with faith.
Living through the ego we begin to feel overwhelmed by the repetitive patterns and cycles and feel as if we we’ve been recklessly abandoned with no hope of releiving the suffering. Through enlightenment and learning to accept one’s circumstances we can grow by making the unconscious conscious. Understanding our own behaviour and emotions we begin to come to terms that noone can influence change in your life other than ourselves. Real change starts from the heart. Living in a more peaceful way we begin to see the beauty that is, we begin to reflect our inner peace on the external world and in doing so opening a world of possibility.

Open to reflection & understanding.
Human consciousness can only explain so much, noone has all the answers. Just be one with yourself and come to terms with your being. Remember we all build our understandings differently but wisdom is something that never changes. Be open to other’s ways of living even if you don’t fully understand. Don’t become attached to a piece of information, be willing to understand the facts and put in the due dillegence.

Practices of self-mastery.
As we move to the enlightened self we begin to understand life isn’t about being the best or being right. We begin to understand life is a soulful journey and happiness comes from fully embracing it’s challenges. Life doesn’t get easier we just get wiser and better at managing it. Focus your energy where it counts and on things that will truly matter in the overall scheme of things.

Seeing the bigger picture.
Once self-aware and able to understand our emotions and pains we can begin to live in good practice. Understanding the environment’s threats and opportunities we can become more deliberate in fashioning our future. Understanding both the environment and self we can begin living purposefully, whole and with the best intentions in mind with little hindrance from the ego.


Gradually we learn to stop our emotional reactions and begin to act logically. We must begin to find our flow taking actions that attract opportunities and likeminded individuals. We need to begin handling challenges as the observer focused living in the moment surrendering to the flow of life with unconditional love and acceptance for ourselves and others. Live with love in your heart, take control of your vibration and begin moving through states of being you want to experience.

Accomplishing Goals

What is it you want to accomplish? Maybe you want to start living a healthier life? Maybe you want to start saving money for the future? Start saving for a dream home? A future business?


Whatever it is you want to accomplish there are fundamental steps to making these changes occur in our daily lives. The biggest factor without a doubt being focus. Without focus we wander lost and without purpose. With focus and concentration we can strive to live purposefully, taking actions to improve the overall quality of our lives bringing us close to the dream we’ve established for ourselves.

To reach your vision it must be deeply engrained, your actions must come from a place of passion. Your vision should be your first thought when you wake and your last thought before going to bed. Your vision should be something you cannot go without, something no one can convince you to shy away from.

8 Principles to Accomplishing Any Goal

Visualize where it is you want to be, visualize the end result, and visualize the journey. Where is it you want to be at the end of your transformation? Is it realistic? Can you see yourself taking the steps to get there?

Create a vision & action steps
This is where imagination becomes so important, we need to see it before it ever actually comes into being. Note everything you may encounter, note every opportunity, every risk, create actions steps incase these scenarios ever come into play.

Commit to action
A goal is just an idea without effort and consistent action. Wake up everyday with the intention to knock something else off the list.

Keep the end in mind
We all begin from different starting points, for some success and happiness might be harder to attain than others. Keep the end in mind; don’t quit, you’ll get there in time.

Accept failure and uncertainty
The road of success is buried in misfortune, don’t let failure affect your emotions. You’re going to fail its inevitable, you’re only human… we all make mistakes. Learn from your mistakes and move past them, don’t linger.

Evaluate and re-evaluate
Evaluate yourself, what does your progression look like up until this point? What could be done differently? Are you really utilizing your resources most efficiently? Your time? Are you taking the proper actions? Do your action steps need to be revisited? Is something missing?

The biggest question we should ask ourselves is “knowing what I know now, am I taking the best possible direction to reach my outcome?”

Things change that includes our vision and priorities. The more we come to understand about life, human nature and wholeness the more we redirect our energy to gain purpose from our actions. The more we understand our feelings and emotions the more aware we become and the more willing we are to make the correct choices.

Revisit your vision
is it what you truly want? Are you truly willing to sacrifice everything necessary to accomplish this vision? Are you fooling yourself? Or do you truly believe?

Give your best effort and persevere
If you’re completely sold on your vision and completely willing to sacrifice whatever it is to get there then there’s no better time to start than right now. Effort is between you and you, don’t limit yourself; work for everything you deserve.

Stay poised, don’t get down on yourself if you’ve been at it for a long time. If your vision is really worth it you’ll stick with it. Failure and mistakes are just stepping stones, don’t let them define you. Remember, if it was easy everyone would do it. Not everybody can musker up the strength and courage but for those who can glory awaits.

Building Self-Esteem & Following Your Word

your word

It’s crazy what we can accomplish when we really set our minds to something. When all distractions are eliminated and focus is at its peak we’re able to accomplish so much it’s ironic we accomplish so little.

What do you want to get done today? What’s today’s top priority? If you could reflect at the end of the day what is it you want to say you did?

Do you wake up in the morning with achievable goals in mind?

It’s difficult. Not everyone knows what it is they want to accomplish. Most of us have been laying back and relaxing so long we forget we’re capable of achieving.

We neglect ourselves till our self-worth is diminished and we no longer value ourselves. When we neglect action we begin to believe life’s opportunities are based on luck. We begin to believe all power is out of control and things will never change.

Wake up with a sense of purpose. Where do you want to be within a week’s time? A month’s time? Start to live according to your plans.

Build your self-confidence and self-esteem with little steps. Begin with something small and gradually challenge yourself more and more as you build momentum.

Follow your word. Your word is everything to yourself and others.

What is your word? Your word is following through with whatever it is you say you’re going to do. Your word is integrity.

Your word builds other people’s faith in you. Without following through on your word you become unreliable and toxic anchor. Following through with your word you can build the greatest of plans. Following through with your word you can build the strongest of support systems and a favorable reputation.

Where to Begin:

1) Write things down. More often then not we have so much on our plate our brain decides out with the old in with the new. We begin to discard thoughts that deem unimportant to the current situation. If you can’t take action now write it down and take action when the opportunity presents itself.

2) Be honest with yourself and others. Part of following your word is not offering false promises. We have to be honest with what we are truly capable of so we don’t overpromise. Be humble, more often then not its better to undersell that way you can exceed expectations.

3) Have good intentions & strong morals. Life is full of different influences, don’t let them distract you and throw you off. Living according to your values and purpose will become its own reward over time. Don’t deviate.

4) Hope for the best but be realistic. Don’t let doubt limit your potential. When you say you’re going to do something do it with a positive and open mind, don’t let stress get in the way. Choose not to complain or dwell but rather to look at the situation in a new light.

5) Remember the concept of karma. Do unto others as you wish to be done unto yourself. Live life in a purposeful way and gradually you’ll build a network of like-minded individuals. There world is full of infinite possibilities and the internet offers many ways to find social groups. Choose to create and publish, find your niche. Don’t be limited to your local community, get out there.

Remember you can build true value by living through your word. Choose to lead by example, not everyone is ready to live in such a way. Don’t procrastinate, start taking action and conquer anything that plagues you. Don’t let fear stand in the way from you living the life you’ve dreamed of. Start with little steps and begin from there, life doesn’t get easier we just get wiser and better at managing it.

Remember this concept of self-esteem and don’t forget it:

“Self-esteem is like a difficult-to-cultivate flower. It requires frequent nurturing that occurs when you keep your word and follow through on your promises.” Derrick Bell

Principles of Blog Writing

When it comes to blog writing everyone has their own take. Blog writing is self-expression at its finest, allowing even the most complex individuals to showcase and articulate their deepest thoughts without fear of rejection.


Honestly when I think about blog writing I think to myself… Am I really cut out for this? Could I really maintain a blog? Would I be able to keep up with engaging content that viewers actually want to read?

Realistically it doesn’t matter as long as I write. My first principle of blog-writing is doing it for myself. Writing about topics that peak my interest and at a volume that makes sense to me. If I wake up tomorrow and don’t want to write a blog, that’s fine, I won’t write a blog that day. If I wake up and want to write 4 blogs then I don’t let anything stop me and I do so. I try not to criticize myself in terms of working on my blog; I try to just allow the energy to flow naturally.

My second principle would be patience. There are many factors that contribute to becoming a successful SEO and blog writing is only one of those aspects. It’s essential to continue to stay patient not only when considering building followers but also when working on developing your own personal skills. Change is inevitable and we need to continue our own personal progression to stay innovative and ahead of the curve.

Principle three; perseverance. (A) Staying true to your voice, (B) putting the time in when it counts and (C) remaining consistent.

(A) First persevere with your voice. Don’t forget about why you began and what your aim was. What were your values and your overall goal? Stay consistent with who you are just focus on A+ quality. Honestly we can all be insightful if we are given the opportunity to engage in deep thought. We all see the world different from one another and can learn from each other’s various perspectives. Staying true to yourself means staying in line with your passion and finding a niche that will appreciate and support you for who you are.

(B) Putting in the time when it counts refers to not allowing yourself to fall behind. It means being able to deviate good decisions from bad ones, doing what actually needs to be done rather than a lesser task. It means potentially staying up some nights just to get head sometimes just to allow freedom to breathe. Writing can easily become a daunting task if you begin to resent it but that’s not to say it could also introduce you into a world of euphoria engaging in new positive thought patterns.

(C) Perseverance is everything. “Writing at its best, is a lonely life” – Ernest Hemingway. You need to be willing to endure solitude and isolation to concentrate on your own thoughts.

Principle four; care for yourself. Now this may seem odd and almost like it has nothing to do with blog-writing but that couldn’t be further from the truth. If blogging is our platform for self-expression then we need to be sure we are expressing ourselves in a whole, joyous way. Choose to live in the light rather than the darkness.

If we are angry at the world 24/7 365 days out of the year then most likely when we write the underlying tone that the readers will embrace is that of anger or sadness. We need to be able to write from the heart from a place of love or the craft will become tedious and repetitive fairly quickly.”We can’t learn to love another until we’ve learnt to love ourselves” this is also in our writing. Learn to love yourself and enjoy being happy everything else will fall in line.
