How to stay balanced!

When you are in balance with yourself you are present, you see clearly and you are grounded.

Since we are both, the masculine and the feminine within and we are divine energy/love/light Beings incarnated into a Human experience, it is clear to understand that maintaining your personal balance is essential to a happy and fulfilled life experience.

To maintain your balance wants to be an easy and joy filled experience.

You will notice how good it feels to be in balance in comparison to when you are out of balance. To be out of balance really is an awful and unstable place to reside in.

But when you do take the necessary steps to regain your balance you will find the beauty in this process as well as the feeling of relief, strength and authentic empowerment that it will give to you.

In essence claiming your ability and response- ability to be in charge of your happiness and well-being.

Lets start with the focus point for your balance.  It is your 2nd chakra or the power point about 2 inches below your navel.  The best and easiest way to activate this power place within you is to breathe slowly and deeply into the bottom of your belly.

This will ground you into your body, it will shift you into being present and it will connect you into your energy/love/light self.  This is very important and an exercise you want to maintain all day every day J.

As you are aware of your breath and your conscious connection into yourself you have the ability to self observe.

Here is a small check list to go over:

Ask yourself:

1) Have I maintained a balance between my mind and simply being?

Meaning, if you have been over thinking and been occupied with an overload of thoughts, it is time to disengage from all thoughts and give yourself a mental break; peace of mind.  This is when you will become aware of any stored emotions; breathe-feel-don’t think!

2) Have I maintained a balance between work mode and enjoy/relax mode? Meaning; too much of anything isn’t a good thing.

3) Have I maintained a balance between giving and receiving?

Meaning; if you only give you will deplete yourself and if you only receive you overwhelm yourself.  We all must give and we all must receive.  It is the balance of the masculine and the feminine within us.

It is easy to find ways to give but harder to receive when it depends on another.  Don’t depend on another!  Give to yourself!!!  Refill, recharge and love yourself.  Anything above and beyond coming from another will be a positive extra J.

4) Is this choice going to support my balance?

Meaning; Only you know what you need and what you have been lacking.  This could be a food choice to – vacation choice – to taking “you time” choice.  No matter how large or how small the choice, it wants to balance you on the smaller level as well as on the bigger life picture level.

Sept Blog Picture Britta DubbelsThe more present you become to keeping yourself in balance the happier you will be!  It is true J.

Of course sometimes we get out of balance, when life sweeps us away.

Recognize this and pay attention to how you feel when imbalanced.

Then find the ways to rebalance yourself and notice the difference in well being within yourself.  Pay attention to your feeling/guidance/ intuition when you ask yourself:

“What do I need/want to rebalance myself?”

The stronger you become in your conscious balance the more authentically empowered you will be when life throws curve balls at you.  Because you know it will, that is how you get to practice maintaining your center.

Have fun with taking responsibility and make it playful!

Until next time.

Love and Light,

The more you give, the more you have!

Bora Bora and Miami 325

 

Giving doesn’t necessarily have to mean solely to others, giving is just as real and important when you give to yourself.  So whether you are giving to yourself or to others, the importance is the balance between the two.

Conscious giving is a magical experience. You may be giving of your time, your devotion, your patience, care or love. Whenever you give love for example, you feel more love,  Whenever you give more patience, you feel more patient. That which we are focusing on becomes our experience. Therefore, whatever you want more of, give it.

To give to yourself is very important.  Sometimes you may need alone time, sometimes you just may need to do what you want to do. And when you do honor your own needs, you “refill yourself” so you will be able to give again in a conscious way.

Enjoy conscious giving in this balanced way and you are supporting the healing and clearing of us all.

Namaste,

Britta

A clean slate

IMG_1059I invite you to feel confident in your own ability to turn around a bad moment or even a bad day.  It is not at all necessary that a single adverse situation needs to affect the remainder of your day in a negative way.  You have the choice to create a clean slate in any moment of every day.

You can create a clean slate in very big ways.  You can also create a clean slate in very small ways.  This blog is about the very small ones.

Start by setting the right intention as soon as you wake up.  If need be, wake up 10 minutes earlier than normal.  Breathe and set the energy for the day.  See yourself moving through your day with ease and grace.  Welcoming any challenge with your breath and a smile on your face.

Visualize yourself dodging your drama reactions knowing that those temptations are not worth the trouble.  Instead, shift your perspective to solution, to possibility and a “better way”.  Then, start your day feeling good about yourself and ready to be strong in your light.

As your day progresses remember your breath.  As long as you are consciously breathing you are in charge of how you perceive every moment.

Let’s say a moment arises where you want to blow your lid, or you are feeling incredible frustration arising from inside of you about a co-worker.  Notice it and as you are taking deep, slow, inhales and exhales. Revisit your morning in your minds eye.  Feel the peace, feel the energy to which you have committed yourself, calm yourself right back into that sweet, warm feeling of your bed.  Re-create your happiness.

From here it will be easier to choose a “better way” to think, to respond and to communicate.

Congratulations!  You have just created a new slate for yourself in responding to your surroundings in an empowering way.

In your taking responsibility for your own well-being and your inner peace, you have just strengthened the positive and desired programming within the biology of your body.  You are promoting a healthy nervous system, regular blood pressure and an all around well-balanced body.

Never forget, you are the boss of you and you are in charge of your responses as well as physical well-being.  Taking this kind of responsibility for yourself will strengthen you in your self-respect, self-love and authentic empowerment.

Hopefully you will choose to create many, many more clean slates throughout your days and shift yourself into glorious amounts of strength.

Thank you for joining me.

Blessings, Love and Light,

Britta

One random act of kindness a day!

I was watching a movie with my 9 year old daughter the other day and the big question of the movie was: “How do I make this world a better place?”  The answer was: “One random act of kindness a day!”

My little Naya immediately suggested: “I want to do that, I want to help! Mom, let’s go pick up the garbage on the beach”, and so we did.

But then what?

“What other random acts of kindness can we do Mom?” “What’s next?”

We were thinking about it together and we felt that it could either be doing something for another Being or giving something to another Being.  We set the intention for ourselves to affect life in a positive way on a daily basis through random acts of kindness.

We all want a better world.  We all need a better world.  My daughter wants a better world!  We cannot rely on politicians to do this for us!  Nobody can do it for us but ourselves!

So if children understand the importance of making changes and the ease and grace of giving kindness randomly to Beings in need, then why can’t we adults lead by example?

We do New Years Eve resolutions and commit ourselves to becoming better versions of ourselves.  Sometimes we even stick to our resolutions.  But generally we slip back into the old rut of the comfort zone of what we know.  We mainly focus on ourselves, our own lives and goals.  We get caught up in what we don’t have yet but want or even feel we need; Thinking that “achieving” or “getting” that will make our own world better and that’s when we’ll finally be able to help make a difference.

We all know that’s not going to happen!Feb 2013 Image

So how about for this year we all commit to doing one random act of kindness a day?

How about we become better versions of ourselves by giving kindness in some way, shape or form on a daily basis?

2013 must be different and 2013 must be special.  Only we can make it special and different ourselves.

Imagine if everybody would participate in one act of random kindness a day,!?  Not once but on a daily basis, letting “doing something for another” become a new habit, a new programming.  How great would that be!?  It would have a great impact on ourselves and on our surroundings.

And it is a wonderful exercise that you can focus on with your children or grandchildren.  What a wonderful activity to live with our children and teach our children (or let them teach us).  Children are so smart and the concerns of our world bother them, they understand that help is needed.  They also understand that two little hands do make a difference.

The impact that giving has on the self is tremendous.  It opens the heart, it lightens the energy, it promotes and increases love vibration, which results in greater health, better feeling, better thinking, which then results in making better choices, better speaking…. And so on.

It is priceless and in my opinion and the New Year resolution we all need.

I am committed, I am all the way in.  As a matter of fact I have already begun, why wait ;0)))

Lets make this world a better place, one random act of kindness a day!

With Love and Light,

Britta

Put a smile on your face ;)

Are you smiling enough?

Children smile about 400 times a day; the average adult only 15 times a day.  Is that enough?  I do not think so! ;0))))

A smile goes a long way!

Research is showing that your body does not know the difference between a real smile and you faking a smile.  Any smile affects the body in the same positive ways, so fake it till you make it!

The positive effects a smile or laughter has on your biology are abundant.  Not only does laughter reduce the level of stress hormones, it also increases your antibody production and helps strengthen your immune system.

Habitual smiling provides a fabulous mechanism for release of emotions you’ve been keeping in storage.  A smile on your face will also help you shift your perspective on your life or a personal challenge.  Cracking a smile when your mind is telling you “Life sucks” will communicate into your biology “all is well”; it will also help shift your mental perspective into a more positive outlook such as “solution thinking” or positive self talk and support.  By you producing a smile and holding it for just a few minutes will redirect your focus from negative to positive!!!!

From a social perspective a smile is way more inviting to an outsider than a frown or unhappy face.   The positive benefits of a smile and laughter have been successfully used through laughter therapy, laughing yoga and even in anger management and stress management groups.   It is not a well kept secret.

Do yourself the favor and smile the next time you are upset, angry or stressed for example.  Try it out and see for yourself how it will help you shift into a more positive attitude about everything!  Allow yourself to take everything with a grain of salt, life is too short not to smile and life is too short not to take it with some humor!

It may seem strange to you to smile even though you naturally feel like crying or screaming in the moment but remember that your body does not know the difference.   A smile will activate a lighter and more positive energy within you.   A smile will open up your heart and make you feel more love, compassion and hope.

So make your life a smiling event!  Watch funny movies, meet happy friends and see the humor in the drama.  Put a smile on your face…

Do it now ;0))))))  Laughing…. After all, it is the best medicine!!!!

Have a laughing, smiling day!

With Love and Light,

Britta

Resist no more!

I am sure you have heard the saying “what resists persists”.

So whether it is an emotion, a circumstance or a personal entanglement; whether you like what is happening or you don’t, you want to accept what you are experiencing unconditionally.  The more you try to ignore, pretend it isn’t happening, try to stop it, make it go away or live in denial, the more energy you are losing completely without effect.  YES, resisting what is, persists in keeping you from where you want to be!!

Why fight “what is”?  Don’t you trust in God, the universe, your higher self or greater consciousness?  Why should everything be easy?

Life is not meant to be easy peasy!  Isn’t it your responsibility to learn and grow from certain experiences?

So then why is it that us Humans have such a hard time dealing with discomfort? Because that is what we are resisting, isn’t it?

Curmudgeons aside, we never really resist feeling good and happy!  But as soon as we feel a little bit of discomfort we want to run for the hills or take something to make it go away!  That’s resisting.  And it won’t make it all go away. You may ease the pain and even put discomfort into remission but at another time in your life, it will return, repeatedly, until you are ready to face the challenge and receive the lesson.  The circumstance may be slightly different next time, the person may look and seem different but the emotions that will get triggered will always be the same, until you do the work to get past it!

Life gets much easier when you begin to accept “what is”.  In other words, accepting your part in all creation, and choosing face its challenges, is what will make it go away for good.  Once you have learned your lesson and you’ve passed the tests, the emotion will heal and each particular point of discomfort will lose its power!

See, by resisting you give undo power to “what is.”  Resisting something will make it grow.  Judging “what is” as bad, or good takes us from our path of creation onto the raggedy road of reaction.

In the end everything just “is”.  There really is no good or bad.

Perhaps you are feeling happy about something, but why are you really feeling happy about it?  Have you ever asked yourself that question?

It is your perception of what makes you happy that is pleasing to you or your ego.

From the bigger picture perspective every experience wants to be pleasing to you.  Everything is a gift and an opportunity for you to heal, grow and evolve; for you to find the perspective of acceptance.  So, in this context, resistance is not your friend.

We are simply conditioned to resist discomfort.  That’s all.  In fact, there are many not-so-cottage industries developed around so assisting us in our resistance.  Pay attention to yourself when you are resisting.  Just notice your resistance, don’t just it.  Breathe and feel the emotions present.  It may take less courage that you imagine.  Do not think!

You will find that the less you resist the easier life becomes!!!!

You will find out how much easier it is to flow with life and to trust in what is being given to you.   All is as it should be, always.  Trust and feel your energy growing and enhancing as you embrace unconditionally your lessons for a better, stronger, smarter, happier and energetic YOU! 😉

Keep flowing.

Love and Light,

Britta

Which side of the bed do you sleep on?

Not too long ago my man and I were discussing on which side of his bed the crystal that I gave him for his birthday should go.

This conversation went something like this.

“Should the crystal go on the left or the right side of the bed?,” I asked. 

“You mean the right side I sleep on?,” he asked.

“You don’t sleep on the right side, you sleep on the left side,” I corrected. 

“Well standing in front of the bed, I sleep on the right side,” he insisted. 

“Yes, but when in bed you sleep on the left,” I pursued.

It really is such a great everyday example of how misunderstandings, confusions and misperceptions can occur in all areas of life.

I am sure you have experienced such a phenomenon where your sense of “how it all went down” in a situation and the other person’s sense of “how it all went down” are vastly different.  I always find it somewhat mindboggling. It can cause great frustration and even create great distance between people that generally care for each other.  As witnessed on the world stage, it wreaks even more havoc when countries are somewhat suspect of each other to begin with.

What does all this tell me?

It says that we ought to clarify. We ought to ask questions.   We ought to check our assumptions.

We ought to make an effort to understand the other person’s perspective in order to grasp completely his or her intentions so that you can respond appropriately and at very least you can agree to disagree. 

From my perspective, ultimately it is all about peaceful, unconditional co-existence on this earth.

So, even though you may not always agree with the other person’s experience, perception or opinions, by trying to understand the other you will hopefully open doors that will encourage empathy and mutual respect.

With Love and Light,

Namaste,

Comfortable in your Skin

Hello again : )

This month’s blog is about your skin … and whether or not you are comfortable in it!?

One of my clients said the other day: “All the work I have been doing on myself, has been so worth it! I am actually becoming comfortable in my skin.  I am being myself and I am ok with it!!!”

I loved my client’s comment and felt very inspired by it. Because ultimately isn’t it one of the most important aspects to being and happiness, to be happy in one’s own skin?!?

I assume that most of you who are reading this blog are on the path of bettering yourselves and practicing consciousness of being.  Are there ever times when you do feel uncomfortable in being you, unsure of yourself or insecure for example?  Do you ever feel uncomfortable in your skin?  I am sure this happens to you; it happens to everybody! These are the times and moments filled with valuable material for you!  The moments and times want to be keenly observed and worked with. Never judge! Breathe!!!

Always using the breath, try not to think or intellectualize what you are experiencing! If you are feeling something uncomfortable, then just feel it.  Remember you have to feel it to heal it!

Only if you feel your emotions unconditionally in the moment will you not store it.  Do not think while you are acknowledging to yourself what it is you are feeling.  This allows the emotion to flow right through you and then move on.  Emotions are energy and so are you.  Once the emotion has passed through you is it ok to turn back to your mind. 

Now you may ask yourself: “Where did this uncomfortable emotion come from? Was I judging myself?  Was I judging another Being or a situation? Was this perhaps old conditioning/programming showing itself?” “Did I judge myself through other people’s eyes, perhaps?”

By being honest with yourself you will now be able to identify this experience through the use of your mind and register what indeed created this discomfort in being you and/or being in your own skin.  From here you will have gained great conscious knowledge of yourself so that when it does happen again you will be better equipped to handle it:  better equipped to recognize the pattern which you have identified and stop it, and stop yourself in your tracks! 

Stop your thoughts, whether superior ego or victim ego and say “NO”!  “This is not an acceptable conditioning anymore, I refuse to engage in these thoughts!” Breathe and distance yourself from those old pattern thoughts for as long as you need to, no thoughts, just breath.

The key is to breathe and continuously shift away from those thoughts, knowing it is only conditioning, it is not who you really are!!! Take control of your mind!  Because you can! J
Enjoy working toward a more comfortable skin to live in as you are honoring your journey.

Namaste everybody,
Love and Light,
Britta
