Happy Weekend Warriors!
Let’s spend the weekend leaning into our dreams by practicing present moment awareness (attention), planting our dream seeds (intentions), and fully detaching from the outcome. Be free, stay positive, and remember, where attention goes, energy flows! Trust that this moment is exactly as it should be – pure, perfect, and infinitely abundant.

Saturday – Law of Dharma (what are your unique gifts & special talents?)
Sunday – Law of Pure Potentiality

Stillness, Intentions, & Detachment

exploring-spirituality
“The most creative act you will ever undertake is the act of creating yourself.” – Deepak Chopra

Hello again Spiritual Warriors!! And welcome to another week of Life Tools! This week, we explore Deepak Chopra’s timeless classic The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. Each law is so powerful by itself; but collectively they allow us to weave a fabric of success and fulfillment.

Plant your seeds of intentions with me this November! SPACE IS LIMITED!

Plant your seeds of intentions with me this November!
SPACE IS LIMITED!

On page 73, regarding the Law of Intention and Desire, Deepak writes that, “Intention is the real power behind desire. Intent alone is very powerful, because intent is desire without attachment to outcome…And intention combined with detachment leads to life-centered present-moment awareness. As long as your attention is in the present, (and you are detached from the outcome) then your intent for the future will manifest, because the future is created in the present.”

This echoes the guidance of Krishna to Arjuna in Chapter 2 Verse 48 of the Bhagavad Gita when he tells him “yogastha kuru karmani.” In English, this means “established in yoga (one-ness or present moment awareness), perform action.” So let’s settle ourselves with meditation…and then move into action!

To make our most powerful moves in life, we must plant the seeds for the future, yet be detached from our expectations of what the future will bring. In essence, stay present — right here, right now — and nurture the garden so the seeds can unfold. But our desires for the seeds to grow more quickly, or in a certain way, can create expectations.

Having expectations is a very common thought-form during meditation that drifts our minds into the future, spawning even more thoughts. Many expectations we have are illusions we’ve created based on years of conditioning – decades of developing thought patterns and refining behaviors that have sculpted our sense of Self. We are continuously expecting. Sometimes what we expect is exactly what is delivered; other times, it’s a surprise.

In the Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga, Deepak and David Simon write: “Embrace uncertainty as an essential ingredient of your experience and watch how creative solutions to problems spontaneously emerge out of the chaos. Cultivate an attitude of curiosity and innocence as you live your life and notice how a deep inner security develops within you, independent of things around you.”

So let’s live this week with an attitude of curiosity and innocence and let’s allow that inner sense of security to blossom. Join me Thursday on Hay House Radio and we’ll take it even deeper.

Keep meditating, and I’ll see you in the gap!
Peace. -davidji

This Moment Is the Perfect Teacher

tumblr_m34gs2FXUF1r3jhqxo1_1280
“The most difficult times for many of us are the ones we give ourselves.” – Pema Chodron

Hello Spiritual Warriors!!! And welcome to another week of life tools. This week we celebrate the American Buddhist nun Pema Chodron who teaches at the Gampo Abbey in Nova Scotia, Canada. She is the author of the classic When Things Fall Apart and the magnificent life guide Comfortable with Uncertainty. And, her teachings are core to my Masters of Wisdom & Meditation Teacher Training, which I hold twice a year (16 weeks online and then a week right here with me at the Meditation Nest in the SweetSpot of the universe).

Pema Chodron teaches that we can use our difficulties and problems to awaken our hearts; that this moment is the perfect teacher; and that when you feel like running, instead lean into the pain, the hurt, or the discomfort. She is a powerful teacher of heart-based living and one of her core teachings is that true compassion does not come from wanting to help out those less fortunate than ourselves but from realizing our kinship with all beings – our one-ness.

She advises that before we take on the suffering of others, we develop compassion for our own wounds. That can be difficult for some of us as we run around serving everyone else in the world and forgetting about our own emotional wellbeing. But, it is our unconditional compassion for ourselves that leads naturally to unconditional compassion for others. And, if we are willing to stand fully in our own shoes and never give up on ourselves, then we will be able to put ourselves in the shoes of others and never give up on them.

This week, I invite you to forgive yourself for one mistake you’ve made this year and treat yourself gently about it. Feel free to choose a big or a little “mistake”; just choose one thing you have been beating yourself up over and act kindly to yourself about it. Can you do that? Can you love yourself just a little bit more? (don’t worry – it’s just a little bit) Can you forgive yourself? (finally) Can you give yourself a second chance? Or third? (just one more time). Don’t do this alone. Forward this email to anyone you know in emotional pain and watch the impact of your compassion ripple out into the world.

After you’ve read this, sit with your fear, disappointment, embarrassment, irritation, resentment, anger, or jealousy – own it. Sit with your sadness and feel it. Allow your feelings to become so deep that they pierce your heart. A magnificent experience will unfold. You will die to the past. You will step into the now. Your love will become true. Your heart will expand as will your ability to have compassion for yourself. I know…easier said than done. But if we take the time to just allow one emotion to ripple into our heart, a powerful cleansing will occur. Be gentle. Be loving. Be forgiving. Keep it real, keep rippling, and keep meditating. Email me your experiences at and let me know how this practice feels to you.

In the meantime, I’ll see you in the gap. Peace. -d

Let’s Make Some Agreements

tumblr_nazqbybCAE1tg7z2bo1_500
“Every human is an artist. The dream of your life is to make beautiful art.”
– don Miguel Ruiz

Hello Spiritual Warriors! And welcome to September!!!!! And another week of Life Tools.

The Four Agreements, by don Miguel Ruiz, shares four simple truths to commit to and practice to create more love and happiness in your life. The process is transformational – ultimately evolving the way we think!!

Spiritual Reboot Camp Registration closes this week!

Spiritual Reboot Camp
Registration closes this week!

The Four Agreements are:
1. Be impeccable with your word
2. Don’t take anything personally
3. Don’t make assumptions
4. Always do your best

These four simple agreements are powerful change agents and require diligence in the early days of the practice. Sometimes it’s really tough because you feel like you’re going against everything you’ve ever been taught…but the results happen quickly and powerful shifts begin in your life at a rapid pace.

Through years of conditioning, we often fail to see the nuances in the evolution of the ways we express ourselves. Our words…our speech…our emotions…our physical body…our voice…our tone…even our attitude is so often automatic, habitual, knee jerk – we are blind to being the person that everyone else experiences; but as they react to that being, and we react to them, we refine our agreements a bit more tightly. Do you see that this can be a path to inner constriction and UN-conscious behaviors?

Over the years our mind has filled with beliefs that generate a running parade of thoughts. In all that thinking there are many assumptions that we are not aware of. We even make the assumption that what we think is true. We imagine and assume we know what others think of us and how they will react. We also assume that the judgments and self-criticisms we have are true. We have learned to make so many assumptions that we aren’t aware of. These assumptions are not the truth. These assumptions and the faith we express in them is just one way that we are not impeccable with our word.

Through our own personal domestication we have learned to take things personally. We assume that other people’s opinions about us are valid and when those opinions don’t agree with ours, we choose to dislike that person, second guess ourselves, or change OUR own opinion. Their opinion becomes our belief about our self. We end up having an emotional reaction to our own belief because we assumed their opinion is true. We can also take our own opinions personally. Our own self-judgments are also simply assumptions. Even though we have made them up and they are not necessarily true, we make assumptions and take them personally.

This week on Hay House Radio, I invite you to join in me in creating an opening within us to allow these new agreements to flow freely. Bean by bean the bag gets filled; so why not make a commitment this month to practice one of the Four Agreements each week; and if you are gentle and consistent, your life will unfold with greater grace and greater ease. One agreement each week – don’t reach for more. See if you can bring single pointed intention to your personal evolution.

In the meantime, I’ll see you in the gap!
Peace, -davidji

Relationship Reboot

artworks-000062225376-lcnc2i-original
“The most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely.”
― C.G. Jung

Hello Spiritual Warriors! And welcome to another week of growth & transformation. This week, our Life Tool is exploring your life through one of the five realms – specifically, the realm of RELATIONSHIPS.

Dive deep with me into the 5 Realms this November!

Dive deep with me into the 5 Realms this November!

The deepest relationship we have is with ourselves. How do you treat yourself? Is it with compassion, acceptance, & forgiveness? Is it with love & understanding? We know that you are your harshest critic – but are you also your greatest champion?

This week, let’s give ourselves permission to nourish the YOU inside yourself. We can start by looking at one other relationship in your life – a relationship that takes up space in your mind, consumes your thoughts, or relentlessly occupies your time. We let people into our heads that we would never invite into our homes – so let’s transform that relationship right now, and take a powerful first step to loving yourself a bit more.

There are four things you can do with a relationship. You can:

Birth it – start anew…fresh…unfettered… unconditioned… as we were born – whole, perfect, pure, and unconditioned, and then let it unfold.

Repair it – ask first, “Do I want to keep this relationship alive?” If yes…then let go of the past, and commit to soothing the wounds, let go of grievances, forgive, forgive, forgive – forgive yourself, forgive the other, make peace.

Shift it – the old way didn’t work, there are boundaries that have been violated – new boundaries, new understandings…new rules of engagement must be established, articulated, and agreed upon — and committed to by both parties — if that can not be agreed upon…

music-mantras-meditations

music-mantras-meditations

End it – cut the cord, say goodbye, every day release one more piece of the relationship… TRULY let it go…when you think you have let it go, let more go…journal, share, charge a rock with your emotional pain and throw it into the ocean…write down your grievances and burn them in a ceremonial fire. Release…release…release.

So let’s make this week one of clarity, grace, and ease, as we take a step toward transformation… one relationship at a time and watch the new you unfold.

Email me with the step you’ve taken. Sharing your choice with someone else can be a powerful support system to your process.

In the meantime, I’ll see you in the gap! Peace. -davidji

Reboot Abundance

abundancee
“Life is a dance between making it happen and letting it happen.”
- Arianna Huffington

Hello spiritual warriors!! It’s time for abundance! Let’s get ready to bring more abundance into our lives.

Let’s start by witnessing our breathing. Feel your breath flow into your nostrils and move into your throat and then into your belly as your lungs fill with air.

Hold this breath in for a few moments and then let go…as if you were letting go of a balloon filled with helium.

EXPAND & TRANSFORM November 22-29, 2014

EXPAND & TRANSFORM
November 22-29, 2014

Now as you slowly inhale again, think of all the things in your life that limit you (you may think it’s a person but rather than making it a person’s name, think of it as your current relationship with that person or something one of you is holding onto).

And it’s important to remember that the things in your life that limit you are all self-imposed, all self-created, all self-directed.

We get the choice to bring our attention to different things in our world – people, jobs, conversations, money, relatives, relationships — these are all forms of energy. We move our energy, our attention, our awareness to these things and they blossom and bloom – they get larger, consuming, and omnipresent until they weave themselves into every fiber of your being.

Not opening yourself to more possibilities in every moment…is a sign of constriction, of fear, of lack, of not enough. Not seeing all that life has to offer in each moment narrows our view until we can only see what we already know – we need to move beyond our blind spots into expanded awareness.

REBOOT your mind, body, & spirit this October!

REBOOT your mind, body, & spirit this October!

If we look to our most genuine Self – the self that rests beneath all of this, we know that we are pure and perfect and whole and full – yes…we are abundant. So where does the confusion come in? Why do we sometimes feel a lack inside when we are actually so full at our core? Why would we feel we are less than, when we have so much to be grateful for?

Right now think of just three things you are grateful for:

It can be as innocent as a relationship, a smile, a health-related issue, something that occurred that you requested, something that happened and took you by surprise, a conversation, a hug, the result of your hard work, or the result of you surrendering…

Keep those three things you are grateful for in your awareness right now. Allow them to block out any other thought.

Now take a deep breath in – and breathe in gratitude; exhale constriction,

Breathe in power; exhale fear,

Breathe in where you are in this moment; exhale where you were,

Breathe in love; exhale loneliness,

Breathe in stillness; breathe out conditioning,

Breathe in silence; exhale chatter,

Breathe in certainty; breathe out doubt,

Breathe in comfort; breathe out pain,

Breathe in abundance; exhale poverty consciousness

Breathe in abundance; and release constriction,

Breathe in abundance; and let go of attachment,

Now just breathe…and witness your breath.

Throughout the day, when you are feeling less than or not in celebration mode…STOP, breathe deep and feel the abundance that flows through you; feel the expansion that grows beyond your constrictions; recognize you are abundant in every moment.

Connect with me LIVE! From the SweetSpot on hayhouseradio.com every Thursday at 11a PST/2pEST!

Aham brahmasmi baby. Now, what are those three things you are grateful for? They must have gotten lost in all your abundance!!

Let’s keep that going. Let’s keep it flowing. I’ll see you in the gap! Peace. -davidji
