4 Ways to Flex Your Self Forgiveness Muscle

BIG Shifts are chock full of opportunities for self forgiveness.

Tempers run short, emotions run high. You're bound to say, or do something, you won't feel particularly proud of.

There's probably no other time when you're prone to make more mistakes than usual. This being human gig takes practice.

Now, more than ever, is a perfect time to lighten up, especially with your own mishaps.

Here are 4 ways to flex your self forgiveness muscle:

1. Feel your feelings, but don't hold onto them. We all experience negative feelings: anger, fear, resentment. Welcome feelings, but then release them. The worst thing you can do is put those feelings on instant replay. It will only attract more of the same stuff. Let it in, then let it go. Feelings are part of the human experience. Allow them to inform you, not immobilize you.

2. Envision the Possible You. Especially during darkest times, hold fast to the vision of who you are becoming (as a consequence of this BIG Shift). Don't give energy to the negative aspect of your BIG Shift story. The less you say about and perpetuate the old story, the sooner you'll create the new one. Keep focused on the continuum of your expansion and expression. See yourself as the evolutionary being that you are.

3. Do Things That Make You Happy. Keep your poise and positive attitude and act as best you can moment to moment. Do little things every day that give you that cup runneth over feeling. It might taking a bubble bath, singing to your favorite songs, or going to a special place that you love. Going off on a weekly Artist Date is a great practice too. And, if you love company, make sure to invite a good friend to share it with you.

4. Engage in random acts of kindness. Even if it seems insignificant, devote yourself to giving selflessly. You may have lost things during your BIG Shift, but you did not lose your most precious resource: You! Share your gifts and talents and your joys and thrills. The more you share, the more that energy multiplies and ricochets back to you. The energy of giving is the most abundant force on the planet.

Forgiveness is a power tool that frees your energy and unleashes your creative essence. It also puts you in the present moment, instead of the past. It liberates you from the chains of the old and positions you on the pathway to the new.

How to Make Your BIG Shifts Fun and Easy


Resistance is not a fun place.

It is, however, a portal to possibility. That shift alone can open infinite doorways on your BIG Shifts journey.

Consider that resistance is your companion on the evolutionary adventure. Wouldn't it make sense to embrace the unknown, instead of fighting it?

The dark and the difficult are needed as
much as the light 
and the easy.  Osho

What if  resistance is a call to a deeper level of trust, an opening to your soul's calling? Wouldn't you just hate to miss that opportunity?

Luckily, you don't have to. Life is always on offer and resistance is really a personalized map to unleashing your greatest potential.

Once a BIG Shift has occurred you have a choice: You can respond from your wholeness or you can react from your habits. You know which one leads to a quantum leap in your own evolution, right?

Here are 4 companions to help you experience the BIG easy on your BIG Shifts:

1. Laugh a Lot. There are SO many reasons that laughter is good for you, but mostly it feels great AND gets your energy flowing. You can either watch some funny You Tube videos or even start laughing spontaneously. What may first seem to be a forced laughed, will become genuine laughter. Laughter relaxes and energizes you in seconds. Laugh more!

2. Lighten Up. Release your tight grip on how things need to be, or used to be. Seriousness and significance will only slow down your movement. Tune into the ways that you can lighten up right now. Look for the places in your world that are rigid and set. Toss out some of the ‘have to's.' Break the rules!

3. Luxuriate in the Now. Bask in the rightness of this moment. Feel the goodness that IS flowing and give thanks. Feel the perfection of right now. Less doing, more being. When you think of the things that you need to ‘do,' break them down into byte-sized bits that can be handled in a sitting. Build on these moment to moment successes. Experience every day magic!

4. Wonder. Think back to when you were a child and you’d sit, wonder and dream about the stars in the evening sky. Weren't you transported by your sense of excitement and possibility of what else was out there? It is this ‘curious inquiry’ which is an invaluable tool when engaging the BIG Shifts and breaking through to an expanded level of awareness. Daydream more!

Things often must break down in order for you to explore a new way of seeing and being. Resistance is Life’s invitation to compost the old and bring in the new. It’s the natural order for an evolutionary being, and that’s who you really are.

Every painful situation in your life can be used as a catalyst to create increased clarity and greater understanding. You are peace, you are light, you are love. The only ‘problem’ is a gap in awareness. The only ‘challenge’ is your programmed behavior. Be willing to free the me.

BIG Shifts can be your personal pathway to peaceful power.

6 Money Myths and Memes That Block Your Abundance

709You're sure to encounter some money stuff on your BIG Shifts adventure. With all the breakdown in your world this is one playground that is certainly up for revision.

BIG Shifts can create a good amount of stress in your world, but having to deal with fears about money can be the thing to put you over the top.  Let's explore some  money myths and memes to shift your perspective on the money game.

Myth #1: I'll never have enough money.  You don't have to settle for the way things are. In order to shift this belief  you have  to (1) consider that it's possible and (2) tap into your desire for abundance. The constricted feel of this meme let's you know it's not true. You are a child of the universe and deserving of ALL the good things in life.

Myth #2: Money is the source of all evil. Wanting money doesn't make you selfish or bad. Money gives you the means to lead the kind of life you want: fulfilling, exciting and independent. Being financially abundant gives you choices so you can live a more rich and rewarding life. It also gives you the power to share your abundance with those movements that matter most to you.

Myth #3: Money is scarce. Abundance for you does not mean lack for someone else. You don't have to take anything away from someone else to build your wealth. The universe expands, and so does money. It's the focus of your flow that makes the difference.

Myth #4: You need to have money to make money. Think of all the ‘success stories' you've heard. There are so many people who came from nothing and have created an abundant life for themselves, and others. You don't have to have a lot of money to make more money. You just have to be willing to step up and claim yours.

Myth #5: Wealth requires sacrifice. You don't have to give up anything to become wealthy. Financial flow is a choice, not a sacrifice. There will be trade-offs. You might have to put off having certain things, but that's a choice. You get to decide.

Myth #6: You can't make money doing what you love. The legion of creative entrepreneurs that are taking hold of the marketplace illustrates that the time has now come to align your work in the world with what powers you up. All you need to do is take the leap.

There are an infinite number of money myths, these are just a few frequent flyers. Naming your own money myths is a powerful practice. Tuning in to your money memes and myths is just another invitation to experience your ability to expand your power, clarity and vision. Game on!
