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

Fears are foes.

So many of us are plagued by fears.  There is the fear of flying, fear of heights, fear of snakes, fear of water, fear of germs, fear of dentist etc.

Then there are more internal and intangible fears such as fear of loss, fear of abandonment, fear of success, fear of love, fear of commitment, fear of failure, fear of public speaking, just to name a few.

Here is the most common fear of all: “Fear of the unknown”.

All these fears feel real and can be quite debilitating. The strange this is … none of these fears are actually real.

Fears result from our conditioning or programming.  They stem from past experiences and the perceptions of those events.  You were born without fears (give or take a few fears from past life time’s carry over ;0).   Essentially, you were born fearless:  free to explore and with a clean slate.

So if fears are just programming and not who you are, then why do they hold such power over us?  It is almost as if our society has deemed fears as dangerous daemons, made them out to be bigger, smarter and more powerful than we are and could ever be.  Why do we so readily accept these fears and why do we identify with them as if they are something cool and interesting to share?  Fears have become a conversation piece for entertainment.  How many times have you dramatically shared your fear of heights for example?  How many times have you accepted another failed attempt at business or relationship because of your inability to give it your all? How many times have you let a fear hold you back?

You know fears are like a bad domino trick – you allow and accept one fear, which makes accommodation for another fear, and that for another – next thing you know your pillars of confidence are collapsing uncontrollably.  Fear breeds fear, it builds upon itself.

Fears are energy suckers, they literally drain the life force out of you.

 

The more predominant your fear, the more it weakens you.   At the moment that you know for example that you feel the need to change something but in reality you don’t because you are too fearful of the unknown, you are a little bit weaker than the previous moment.

And all because you haven’t realized yet that you give fear its power.

Without you fear is powerless!  It needs you to feed it, to accept it, to engage it and to keep it alive.  You feed it and keep it alive with your thoughts.  You justify and even identify with your fear through your thoughts, when in truth you are not your thoughts and you are certainly not your fears (because your fears don’t exist, remember?)

When you overcome your fear and you move through it to the other side you are strengthened.  You’ve taken back your power back.  You are less self-debilitated.  You’ve freed yourself from imprisonment.

You have to want it though.  You must choose to and desire to be liberated and more empowered than ever before.  Imagine yourself fearless!  What would you do?  What wouldn’t you do?

Once you can see yourself free from your fear, you are ready! You can feel it.  You are ready to move through it.

What you want to do is lean into your fear.  Get to know it.  Realize that without your thoughts, it has no substance.  Lean into it deeper still.

Iguana picture by Britta Dubbels

Feel your resistance to it and lean into that. By moving into it you are literally taken the power out of it.  It’s like stepping into a dark, cold and scary room, once you turn the lights and the heat on you will see that there is nothing scary about the room at all.  You may even begin to like the space of the room so much that it’ll become your new favorite hang out space.  When you lean into your fears, you will realize that there is nothing to fear but fear itself.  Your fears aren’t real unless you make them real.

So be bigger than your fears, be smarter and face them fearlessly because that is who you really are.  Make it real … let your siblings, your friends,  and your colleagues know that they can change their debilitating fears as well

Namaste,

Britta

Our Religion

Happy Holidays!!!
How this time of year comes around so quickly again and again amazes me.

I would like to dedicate this month’s blog to hopefully inspire a higher level of thought or bigger picture perspective on a very touchy subject: “Religion”.

I went to a Christian Church last Sunday. As I was raised Christian by my family in the north of Germany; we weren’t particularly “religious” but we were certainly “God fearing”.

Since this last Sunday I hadn’t been to a church in decades.  I hadn’t been to a church in all this time mostly because I had found my own “Church” inside of me and have developed wonderful communication and connection with Source without having to attend a designated building.  Also, I have chosen not to be affiliated with any belief group but instead to honor them all.  In this way I feel in closer alignment to my original truth-source.

As I was sitting there in church, in the midst of many people, I could feel their despair, their struggle and pain as well as their hope and longing to belong.  Next I could see the different religions of our planet flash in front of me (my mind’s eye) with all their different traditions. This is when I remembered, that no matter the religion, tradition or heritage, we all have similar pain and struggle. No matter what part of the planet we are from, no matter which religion, belief or tradition, we all suffer the same!  We all feel!
Therefore none of us are better or worse than the next.  None of us are more or less chosen.  We are equal; we are all extensions of source equally.  Yes, we are born into different religions, traditions and cultures but neither is better or worse, more right or wrong; There is no “right way” or “the only way”.  We may have different karma, purposes and intentions for our lifetimes but our essence is the SAME!

We need to unite as people belonging to the same race, not separate from each other because of the details (religion, cultures, traditions…etc.) of how we experience this life. These “details” are simply human illusion, ego-based limiting perceptions which will keep us separate for as long as we allow ourselves to remain blinded.  We are all special in our own right, every single one of us.

Yes, there are fanatics in all walks of this life and those radical extremists could easily be judged as dark or unconscious.  Who are we to judge?
Is it our job to judge?  How about we simply observe and bring the focus back to our own selves and ask for blessings straight from Source to penetrate these Beings. “May their hearts open and may their wounds heal”.

We are all the same, we are all one and we are all here together. 

It is time to focus on acceptance, unconditional co-existence and “equality”.  And the ones of us who consider themselves “special”, “chosen” or “right” ought to take more responsibility in finding ways in which to unify rather than separate any further. 
The more conscious you are the more responsibility you hold in choosing Love and “Oneness” consciousness.

For as long as there is still “separation consciousness” present on this planet we have not completed our purpose-individually as well as globally.

To all of you conscious beings regardless of religious belief orientations: “Be the leaders in this love-choice”.

Communication is Uplifting

This month’s blog subject is communication. 🙂

Communication is often easier said than done.
Why is this?

We all have different strengths and weaknesses.  For some of us communicating is easy and a pleasure and for some of us communication is more of a burden. Of course what, and with whom we communicate may change the likes or dislikes of the process all together. Like it or not, however, the bottom line is that communication is the basis for all relationships.

There are many different forms of communication.  Animals communicate through sounds, gestures and body language, and so do we humans. We can even communicate through mental telepathy but that’s not what I mean — I am talking about good old vocal cord-activated words coming out of our mouths.

Communication can become challenging when different points of views are at play or emotions want to be expressed.  Another common difficulty is that people often hear what they would like to hear or hear what fits into their reality perspective or their comfortzone.

Here are some guidelines as to how can we perfect the art of our own communication ability?

First, there is no such thing as perfect!  Let go of any pressure of it having to be “perfect” and let go of it having to go a certain way.

Second, let go of any expectations of how you would like to be heard, received or responded to.

Third, be clear within yourself what it is you wish to communicate and be sure to express your feelings in and around the subject.  How you feel matters.

Fourth, do not interrupt or allow interruption.
Do not hog speaking time and do not allow it to be so dominated.

Fifth, speak your truth without censoring. Speak it as calmly and respectfully as you can.  Do not alter your truth out of concern for the outcome if only because at best you would be speculating what that outcome might be.

Sixth, check in to make sure that the other party is understanding/hearing the meaning of what you are saying. Visa versa, listen and be sure to repeat important points back to the other person to let them know you are listening and that it is important for you to understand and show respect.

Seventh, remember it takes two to tango. It’s ok to give a little and to receive a little — in other words find a solution that works for both parties. 
The solution is always attached.

The more we consciously communicate the better we become at it and the greater the benefits will unfold for ourselves. Especially if it is difficult for you to express yourself, know that this means that it is something you must practice! And after all, repetition is the mother of success. 🙂
Communication is uplifting and healing to relationships, it creates intimacy and that benefits all of our relationships, personal and professional. 

Namaste everybody!
Your Friend,
Britta

Authentically Empowered

I would like to dedicate this blog to help clear up some misconceptions about what the word “powerful” means and relate a bit on what this word means to me.

Anybody who knows me has most likely heard me use the words “authentically empowered”.  It is not only important to me personally but also to my work’s intention: to assist Beings into their authentic empowerment.  What I have come across in the process of this work has been quite interesting and worthy of sharing.

It turns out that many people associate the word “powerful” with a rather dark/negative force vs. a light/positive one.  I relate this perception to past experiences with power where it was enforced through some kind of abuse whether that may have been yelling, screaming, hitting, intimidating, belittling, etc. This perceived “power” felt dark or negative to these individuals because the results of it were most likely disempowering to the receiver and empowering to the giver. 

Many of my clients express feelings of fear of themselves and have a difficult time even conceptualizing who they would be as authentically empowered Human Beings.  Since power is seen as a negative force, some experience trepidation that they would do bad things if and when so empowered.

In my work, I help clients redefine their perceptions of power so they can first understand and conceptualize authentic empowerment … and then we can begin the work to help move them to that place.

“Authentic empowerment” does not hurt or harm other Beings.  It does not divide Beings into “better-than” or “worse-than”.  It does not feed the ego and it does not manipulate.  It does not overpower and it does not intimidate. It does not abuse or misuse its power and it does not create negative Karma(after all, everything that goes around will come around!)

So what does this shift in perspective look like!? Authentic empowerment is strong and truthful.  At the same time it is humble and kind. Operating out of a place of authentic empowerment sets clear boundaries to honor the worth of the self and others and respects all other perspectives without judgment and it does not adjust or betray this self-truth in order to please another.

It takes practice of course to keep the balance of honoring the truth and boundaries of self and others, to communicate wants and desires calmly as well as hearing the wants and desires within all relationships unconditionally.  This means, you should not take it personally if another is not in alignment with your truth; you may need a re-evaluation your relationship with this individual to try to find an appropriate place of unconditional co-existence.

It can be a balancing act for some time but the results are magnificent.  I have been blessed to witness this growth within many clients and Beings around the world.  Authentically empowered people who are in alignment with their truth, manifesting Love and Light in all areas of their lives as well as spilling it over and creating positive change for this  planet.

May the force be with you, always!

With Love and Light,
Britta

Choosing to Be The Light

Hello everybody.

It seems as though time is collapsing on itself. I feel as if I have touched and witnessed more than ever before trauma, devastation, pain and drama in people’s lives. And yet, I feel as if have never experienced so much willingness from Humans to face it all and step up to the plate to take it on!

Will change bring out the best or the worst in you!? Obviously it is easy not to deal, to say “poor me”, to take no responsibility, to resist change and growth … or so we think… : )

But that is not what this blog is about!!!

This blog is about me acknowledging the grace and the beauty that comes from making “light” choices! And I want to say “Thank you” to all of you amazing Humans who have been pulling in the light!!! : )

I have been a witness to so many of you struggling with personal challenges but each and everyone of you stand up tall with the knowledge of who you really are and face your challenges through the eyes of solution, growth and healing. It’s been amazing to see the results of authentic empowerment and the influx of light this creates within you as individuals as well as on our planet!

I have also been seeing and hearing about the support which you have been giving to each other!!!

I’ve learned of stories of people helping others find a new job, giving emotional and mental support, helping out with finances, donating money to people who have even less, lending time and energy to others or a cause, and in general of making an effort to help others and ease their pain.

The light is here, it is real, it is you and it is increasing because you are choosing to be the light. It is real because you are shining your light into the challenges and are illuminating the truth.

I am very excited and humbled by the increasing awareness and so, want to finish this blog with the words of Mahatma Gandhi:

Let your thoughts be positive for they will become your words,
Let your words be positive for they will become your actions,
Let your actions be positive for they will become your values,
Let your values be positive for they will become your destiny.

With Love and Light,
Britta

Intelligent Universe

There is a really fun experiment which is easy to do and very entertaining, so if your family ends up sitting around bored on Christmas day-try it!
Or… use it as a good party gag!

What you need is a string and a metal object that has some weight; a nail clipper would do. Tie the metal object to the string so you have a makeshift pendulum.

Choose a subject (friend or family member) and hold your pendulum right over your subject’s head.  Make sure you hold it by the end of the string with the heavy end about three to four inches above the crown of the head.  Hold it very still, breathe and wait about 30-45 seconds.  Shortly the metal object or pendulum will start moving in a circular motion. 

The interesting part here is that if your subject is a male it will always move clockwise and if your subject is a female it will always move counterclockwise!!!  Even more fascinating is that if a friend or family member of the opposite sex holds your subject’s hand, the motion of the pendulum will stop completely!

Party trick or universal intelligence?!?

Even though this is a fun party trick I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t read deeper into it 🙂 and there certainly is some food for thought here!

What you are observing when doing this experiment is a flow of energy.  Remember science is proving that we are energy! Since the downward flow of energy is seven times stronger than an upward flow, this phenomenon most likely demonstrates energy flowing into the head. 

This of course raises questions…such as:

  • where is this energy coming from?
  • why and how does it know to supply the different sex with different energy?
  • is it really a different energy or just moving or vibrating in an opposite way?
  • does this only happen with humans or also with animals and plants?  Since science is showing an energetic interconnection to and with all Beings and things!
  • I believe that this is very simply showing the existence of our always-existing connection to and with source (whatever you wish to call it) and all that is!  And the intelligence or consciousness that supports us at all times!  To me it also shows that male and female are each other’s counterpart and that indeed we do balance out each other — we are ying and yang.

    The first step is always awareness and after that, everybody is responsible to make up his/her own mind.  Party gag or not, it might just be a nice Holiday gift to try this out and to stimulate this very awareness within the ones we love. 🙂

Nurturing our Differences

Happy summer everybody!

Did you know that no two snowflakes (seen under a microscope of course) ever look the same?
Each time it snows, every one of the millions or billions of snowflakes is different! They are individual. All these individuals come together to make snow.  : )   I have always liked this concept and I thought I’d share it with you.

We Humans are like snowflakes.  We are all so different but yet in many ways the same.  We are unique individuals, here together, collaboratively a Human race.

So why is it so difficult to live as these individuals in peace?  Why can we not coexist within our differences?  Our differences exist, so they must be there for a reason.  So should it ever be a matter that we all look different, speak different languages, pray to different Gods, eat different foods, wear different clothing, have different traditions, etc?

The fact of we all being different is never going to change; what needs to change is our ability to accept these differences as they are. To coexist in peace, as one Human race within the differences.  There is no “one way” and there surely is no “the right way” — think about it.  Yes, there is only ONE LOVE but there are many ways to get there!  All paths lead to Rome.  : )

How much easier would life be if we would respect and honor differences rather than trying to reform others to become the “same”. How much happier could we be if differences wouldn’t make us feel threatened and inadequate but at ease and inspired instead. 

As our world become increasingly complex, diversification and coexistence seems to be the path of our future; it may be the only future we have as a Human race.  Let’s be proud of and even nurture our differences!  Let’s unite the way nature intended, individuals coming together as a collaborative race, fitting together all the better because of our differences.

Let’s make snow people, let’s make snow.  : )

Namaste

Conscious Response

Hello everybody! 
Yeah summertime : }

This month I would like to focus on consciously choosing a response vs. unconscious reaction. 

Please allow me to clarify that not all unconscious reaction is bad.  There is the “gut” reaction which is wonderful and can be life saving — instinct at it’s best.

The unconscious reaction that I would like to bring into focus is the programmed/judgmental reaction that involves emotion and thought.  It is what modern psychology refers to as conditioning. This is the reaction programming that may have you looking at yourself saying: “I wish I would have handled myself differently, or I wish I didn’t say that.”

Awareness is the first step you know!? : )

Once you have become aware of yourself “reacting” (and thinking) in ways which are “out of control” and disrespectful to your Being (let alone the other Beings) you are now in the position to do something about it. 

You are the boss of you and only you are able to create change for yourself!  There is no point in waiting for other people or situations to change; it will never happen!!!  Remember, we must take responsibility for ourselves; for the way we think, the way we act and speak as well for the way we perceive.

Perception is really where it is all at because perception is a filtered reality.  Your personal conditioning — emotions and thought patterns — is perception programmed years ago.

What can you do and how do you do it? Get to know yourself!  Observe yourself!  Know where, when and how you get triggered into reacting, yet please, observe yourself without judgment.  Change wants to be created out of love for yourself.  The desire to better yourself and to represent yourself in a graceful way is already a loving experience.  Good for you!

Try to pay close attention when the moment arrives that might trigger you into an old and outdated way of handling yourself.  Watch your body’s sensations because everybody experiences the body’s reaction (oftentimes a “tell” or precursor to the reaction) in a different way.  Remember your breath!? 

Remove yourself from the situation if need be, there is nothing wrong with giving yourself a “time out” and being with yourself in the way that you know you don’t want to react — breathe through i t… Focus on your breath, cool yourself down, remind yourself of the negative words and raised voices and see how that feels outside of the context of that moment. Simply shrinking into yourself and saying nothing at all for example is not a healthy alternative!

As you are breathing encourage yourself; remember how you want to represent yourself and then choose an appropriate response — now you are truly in control!  Do not hesitate to be strong yet gentle.  The gentle strength is your true authentic power.
Express your truth, honor your truth, live your truth.

One last thing, repetition is the mother of success!

Namaste everybody.
Love and Light,
Britta
