Re-Booting Your Love-Life

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hello spiritual warriors – welcome to a week of love! I know it sounds so woo-woo…all this peace & love stuff BUT isn’t that where it all begins? We can deny it and toughen it up but from the moment we exited the womb (and most likely before), we have been seeking a kind hand to hold us, feed us, protect us, nourish us, and comfort us.

Yet with all this other stuff in our lives, it’s easy to push our present needs for this same love into the background. Fear is the absence of love…and we buy into that emotion much more often than the sweet surrender of love.

Most likely this is linked to our original DNA programming to fight or run when we sense a threat. When we live from that mode of existence, there is no room for love. In fact, when we come from a place of fear, we ask these types of questions, “Am I loveable?” “Do I need to change something about my self so people will love me?” “Does that person love me the way I love them?” We could go on forever in this circular devolution of self worth but when we look to our most genuine self that is whole and pure and perfect and abundant and infinite…we realize there is only love and it is ever expanding and ever available because WE ARE LOVE!

So here are 5 easy steps to bring more love into your life:

1) Spend some time in stillness & silence every day – meditate, get quiet, shift your heart and mind out of conversation and into surrender.
2) Wake up, acknowledge the magnificent love of the universe and remind yourself you are part of it by affirming out loud I am safe. I am loved. I am love.
3) When you feel “less than”, give someone love, send someone love, text a kind word, email a loving sentiment – flowing love to others can get you out of that stinking thinking and into appreciation mode very quickly.
4) Remember the power of your ripple – the love you flow RIGHT NOW will continue to reverberate forever, so start the flow.
5) When you are sad or feeling unloved, open your chest wide, extend your heart, and let the universe swoop in and cradle you in its loving arms

You are so worthy of being loved – so read this poem by Hafiz translated by Daniel Ladinsky:

Saints Bowing In the Mountains

Do you know how beautiful you are?
I think not, my dear.

For as you talk of God, 
I see great parades with wildly colorful bands
Streaming from your mind and heart,
Carrying wonderful and secret messages
To every corner of this world.

I see saints bowing in the mountains
Hundreds of miles away
To the wonder of sounds
That break into light
From your most common words.

Speak to me of your mother,
Your cousins and your friends.
Tell me of squirrels and birds you know. 
Awaken your legion of nightingales—
Let them soar wild and free in the sky.

And begin to sing to God. 
Let’s all begin to sing to God!

Do you know how beautiful you are?
I think not, my dear…

Yet Hafiz
Could set you upon a Stage
And worship you forever!

Heal Yourself!

Heal Yourself!

And share this with everyone you know…email it, forward it, tweet it, post it on Facebook, shout it from the mountains!!! Remember the power of your ripple.

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

RE-Booting Your Meditation Practice

mountain-meditation
“Everything happens kind of the way it’s supposed to happen, and we just watch it unfold. And you can’t control it. Looking back, you can’t say, ‘I should’ve… ‘ You didn’t, and had you, the outcome would have been different.
- Rick Rubin

Hello Spiritual Warriors!!

This week, we explore the Restful Awareness Response: A Meditator’s Third Gear.

When we meditate, our body’s chemistry changes. In fact, we experience the opposite of the physiological effects produced by the fight-or-flight and ego responses. We are less inclined to perspire, our breathing and heart rate slow, our body’s production of stress hormones decreases, our sex hormone production increase, our growth hormone levels are elevated, our immune system strengthens, and our blood flows more easily throughout our entire body. As these physiological shifts to our physical body occur, our mind calms, anxiety lessens, stress seems to shed, and there is an emotional shift in how we respond to unmet needs. This state of restful awareness can last for a moment or through the entire meditation. But the beauty of this process is that the state of restful awareness continues to benefit our bodies even after our meditation session. And as we meditate on a regular basis, we slowly and gently shift our automatic response mechanism to a more unconditioned one.

In the state of restful awareness, we move through situations with greater grace and ease. We are more reflective and less reflexive. We’re less likely to lash out or have knee-jerk reactions, because we are not coming from a conditioned space. We’re less impulsive and more intuitive. We’re making more conscious choices, because we intuitively know what is the highest choice in that moment—the one that honors our Self and the person we are interacting with; the one that elevates both of us to the highest plane of existence; the one that comes from a heart filled with compassion, forgiveness, and a desire for peace.

In the state of restful awareness, we are more open to multiple interpretations of a situation or scenario. We become less attached to our previous interpretations, and our need to defend them feels less urgent. We see the bigger picture…a more expanded landscape…rather than the more narrow view we once had. Over the first few weeks of daily meditation, this grace, ease, and expanded awareness weave themselves intermittently through our interactions. As we continue to meditate and spend time in stillness and silence, each day becomes more comfortable, restful awareness becomes more and more our natural state, and greater clarity begins to unfold. It becomes less important to defend our point of view, because we see greater possibilities, and creative solutions emerge to once-daunting challenges.

We become more alert, more creative, more intuitive, and more relaxed. We start having anxiety-free days, and stress becomes more manageable. And our first response to unmet needs is no longer the ego response…it’s as if we have reached another level in our emotional evolution.

Our more common response starts to be one of truly resting while we are aware—of silent witnessing before we act out old, conditioned response patterns yet again. This “new” state could also be called restful alertness, because our senses are heightened, and we begin to experience a new lightness of being. Little things don’t irritate us or knock us off course as easily. We become more fluid in our thoughts and actions—more intuitive and creative in our choices…then more visionary in our goals…and then we start seeing miracles unfold in our daily life.

Awakening Your Inner Healer

“Get out of your head and get into your heart. Think less and feel more.” – Osho

Hello spiritual warriors!

Ready to awaken healing in your life? It’s actually a re-awakening since there was a time when you were whole, pure, perfect, healed, and one with the universe. Somewhere along the way, you shifted your mindset and began seeing yourself as separate from the one-ness of everything.

JOIN ME for a RE-BOOT!!! October 9 - 12, 2014 LEARN MORE!

JOIN ME for a RE-BOOT!!!

It was in that moment that you began to listen to outside voices instead of the divine voice of source whispering within. It was just about then when you started to see yourself as an unconnected, singular individual – and right about then, your belief that you were alone and had to fend for yourself began to manifest.

So how do we get back to that pure moment? How do we time travel back to that mind-set when we saw ourselves as an inseparable piece of the whole – like a drop of water in the ocean containing the entire ocean in its essence?

We get back to that healing space through a few simple steps:
• Surrender
• Stillness & silence
• Affirming
• Trust

We start the process with an open mind and an open heart. This requires that we don’t resist ANYTHING. We surrender to the reality that this moment is perfect, pure, and exactly as it is supposed to be. Every moment leading up to this moment is exactly as it should be and that makes this moment no exception. From a fully surrendered space we will receive rather than resist what the universe is offering us.

Next we connect with the stillness & silence that rests within. We can start that by simply practicing the 16-second technique. Witness your breath as you breathe in to the count of 4; then hold that breath in as you observe it in your belly; then gently release the breath and watch it as it moves up your chest into your throat and out through your nostrils; then hold the breath out…watching it as it dissipates into the ether. Do that 4 times and it’s a minute; do it 20 times and that’s five minutes.

Once you have achieved this state of restful awareness, with your eyes closed begin to repeat an affirmation. This is a statement of wholeness in this present moment such as “I am safe.” “I am whole.” “I am healed.” “I am love.” “I am one.” Or “I am the universe.” Select one that speaks to you deeply. Whichever you select, say it out loud 3 times; then whisper it 3 times; and then repeat it silently to yourself over and over.

When you have finished your affirmation session (anywhere from 1 minute to 30 minutes), take a deep breath in, feel the wholeness of the universe fill you and as you let go of that breath, announce to yourself and the world, “I Trust!”
Practice this every day for a week and you will start to feel your wholeness returning. Keep it going and your life will continue to blossom & bloom.

Send me an email and let me know how your awakening of your inner healer is progressing. In the meantime, I’ll see you in the gap! Peace. -davidji

Weekend Meditation – Saying YES to Life!

tumblr_n92vojWDF91sx0b9go1_500
“Always say “yes” to the present moment. What could be more futile, more insane, than to create inner resistance to what already is? what could be more insane than to oppose life itself, which is now and always now? Surrender to what is. Say “yes” to life — and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you.” - Eckhart Tolle

Happy Weekend Spiritual Warriors!
Float & enjoy this FREEDOM meditation.

“Love is a place
& through this place of

(with brightness of peace)

yes is a world
& in this world of yes live
(skillfully curled)
all worlds”
-  E.E. Cummings

Hello Spiritual Warriors!!

What would you dare to dream if you knew you wouldn’t fail? Where would you take your life, if you had no fear or limitations?

What are we afraid of anyway? The most common fears are:

• Fear of being alone
• Fear of the unknown
• Fear of looking like a fool
• Fear of being “found out”
• Fear of having no money
• Fear of trying new things
• Fear of not measuring up to new people
• Fear of failing
• Fear of succeeding

Every time a new offer appears in our life, our conditioning guides us to either block it or accept it. We all choose what will occur in our lives based on our resistance or open-ness to a given moment. In the unknown rests the fresh, the new, the expansion of our existence. When we unconsciously block the unknown by saying “no”, we resist the universe and constrict our potential.

While saying “yes” every time we are asked a favor, can lead to weak & porous boundaries, saying “yes” every time we are offered an opportunity can lead us to new dimensions – which can shift our life to new heights.

Try it this week. Simply make the commitment every day, to say “YES” when offered the opportunity to meet a new person, express our voice, try something new (as long as it isn’t hurtful to you or someone else), or test your abilities.
Start small. Begin by taking small steps: make a phone call you’ve been putting off, text someone you haven’t spoken to in a while, ask a question when you don’t really understand the situation, and prepare for magnificence to unfold in your life.

Listen Now!

Listen Now!

Use my 16 seconds to clarity breathing technique (inhale for 4 seconds; hold it in for 4 seconds; release it for 4 seconds; hold it out for 4 seconds) as soon as you find yourself saying no. Introducing this pattern interrupt will allow you to step into YES with greater grace and greater ease. Email me with your results to celebrate your YESes!!!

I’ll see you in the gap. Peace. -davidji

Awakening Love in Your Life

tumblr_n8q27i4qUx1s85s52o1_500

“May our heart’s garden of awakening bloom with hundreds of flowers.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

Hello Spiritual Warriors!! I hope you are thriving and leaning towards nourishment. This week we explore awakening love in our life.

No matter who your are; no matter what you do; no matter where you live – you could use more love. More self-nourishment, more joy, more affection, more forgiveness, more compassion from those in your life, more attention from others.

Spiritual RE-Boot Camp October 9 - 12, 2014 Carlsbad, CA

We want it; we need it, but our quest for it is often misguided. We look outside of ourselves for something that rests within. We seek what we already are.

Yet we wake up each morning on a quest to somehow find it in a text, a phone call, an email, or the eye of someone we are gazing at.

If we could recognize our splendor – see the divine nature of our being, we’d understand and appreciate the magnificence that rests at the core of our being.

We can connect to that radiance with greater consistency by following these 5 steps starting with each morning as soon as we rise:

Step 1) Start your day with some stillness & silence. Meditate – whether for 16 seconds or a full 30 minutes. Using a mantra (I list 12 timeless mantras on page 207 in Secrets of Meditation), or simply following your breath in and out, will place us in a state of witnessing awareness.

Step 2) Surrender. Acknowledge that this moment is pure and perfect and exactly as it’s supposed to be. The past is carved in stone – the future is unknown – all we have is this precious, sacred precious moment.

“There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow, so today is the right day to LOVE, believe, do, and mostly LIVE.” – Dalai Lama

Step 3) Draw the logical conclusion that — if this moment is perfect – so are you…exactly where you are supposed to be – with all the emotions, relationships, and circumstances that you have created.

Step 4) Open your heart to love. Repeat the affirmation. Today I let love in. Today I receive love. Today I am love. And throughout the day, as soon as you are not getting your way…as soon as you witness yourself trying to impose you view on how things are supposed to be or how something should unfold, repeat the affirmation.

Step 5) Flow. Extend yourself to someone. Lend a helping hand, ear, or heart. Give something to someone – a thank you, an apology, a hug, a smile. Send a text to someone telling them you are thinking about them and sending them love.

Remember that you are so worthy to receive love. And the more you practice these simple steps, the more quickly you will feel loved and feel the love of the universe. Email me with your results. Keep your ripple flowing. I’ll see you in the gap. Peace. -davidji
