Sometimes we slip into playing and living in a much smaller and safer way than we are really here and capable of living. The key to moving beyond this place is to get conscious and to begin to really live the life we most desire. For many of us this desire may feel distant or faraway or perhaps we have been there but lost our way and need to regroup. We often get cues or hints in or daily life that gets us thinking – am I happy , is this life really working for me? Some of us freeze like Bambi in headlights when we hear these messages and stay small- as change can be uncertain and staying where we are seems safer.  Some of us reach overwhelm and question our whole life, its meaning and purpose.  We all get a moment of pause that allows us to question how we are really living life.

When we are being called forward to live more consciously we usually:

  Get a niggling feeling that something is not right…that we are not fulfilled

  Experience a reoccurring sense that there is more to life than the way I am now living.

  Or get another sign in a way we are used to receiving information

Always listen to these cues because they provide invaluable opportunities and subtle openings for change and lasting success.

Recently I realized that I had a lot on my plate and that my priorities and my ability to accomplish what I needed to accomplish while still loving my life was becoming a challenge. I had one of those niggling feeling that something was not right. I had to stop- slow down – listen – take the bull by the horns and reprioritize my days based on what I truly desired most- that aligned with what I value most.

So where does getting VERY clear on our desires enter into the picture?

What we desire is central to designing a life of success and meaning. When you understand your deepest desire (and have tested it to see if it is linked with your highest reason for being here -your destiny) your life will take on a new rich meaning- fulfillment will be central to your every day. You then know that you are on the path to a life well lived.

Let’s get practical here is the roadmap I have used to anchor my deepest desires and values in my day and to measure- daily- how I am doing:

  First be clear about your dream– what do you really want to accomplish (be it in your life or a given month- the art here is clarity about what you want!

  Next, take small measurable steps to build more of this dream into your day (find a teacher or mentor who has already accomplished it, research about it – to build understanding. Do whatever you can to make it real.

  See yourself already there- picture yourself living or accomplishing this great desire ( it really helps to take the distance and blocks away). As you become more comfortable and familiar with the desire it slowly becomes a part of your world.

  Notice coincidences and synchronicities….these are gold dust. Every day here are signs, messages and intuitive knowledge available to us. We must be proactive and invite this wisdom in and use it.

  Close each day with a review of what was wonderful about the day and aligned your day actually was with your greatest desires and values. We are living in an era where great consciousness is needed. Be very conscious and very intentional.

These days that we are living in are absolutely amazing. We have many choices available to us each day. Live life fully. It is your choice.

Let me know if I can be of help. I am committed to your success- your success from the inside out!

Last weekend I was a guest on KGO Radio here in the Bay Area!  I was discussing Life Force Activation – my new work.  Many people have requested the link to the show.  Here it is!  http://www.maureensimonconsulting.com/#!resources/c1xyd

Women are craving more life force in their day-to-day lives.  Maureen Langan and I talked about this in the radio interview.  She is a wonderful comedian with a great personality who truly understands women.  During the interview she asked me a number of questions about why women need to activate their life force at this time.  To me it is very clear that women hold a unique power.  Unless we are clear about our gifts and how we want to use them we stagnate and lose energy and power.  After launching coaching in the U.K., designing hundreds of businesses with women, writing a book on our feminine attributes and hosting online courses for thousands of women, I can clearly see that the next step is to activate our life force.  Interested in learning more?  http://www.maureensimonconsulting.com/#!life-activation/c1m17

Let me know if a session would be useful to you. 
I’m extending the Life Force Activation session special through June.

Life must be lived well and fully!

Enjoy.

“Explore your own higher altitudes…Nay be a Columbus to whole new continents and worlds within you, opening new channels not of trade but of thought.  Every man (woman) is the lord of a realm beside which the earthly empire of the Czar is but a petty state, a hummock left by the ice.”

Henry D. Thoreau “On Man & Nature”

Much of our life is lived in the invisible. We have the option of a conscious spiritual inner life and we can make important life decisions informed from within. And if we chose, we can commit to a deeper – richer inner world. Sit quietly- learn to still your mind. Notice what thoughts and feelings come in. Allow yourself to hear and feel yourself. It is in the higher altitude that you will truly know yourself and your needs and from this knowledge live a rich life of meaning.

Happy flying!

“…the future is not fixed.  The other side of the bridge to the future is not an objective, predetermined, static destination.  In reality, it is a moveable object, a set of probabilities, and most important, a karmic consequence of the lives we lived yesterday and the lives we live today.

The bridge to the future is a bridge that moves – and the land to which it is connected moves as well – according to how we walk across the bridge and who we are while we are walking.”

— Marianne Williamson, Editor “Imagine”

We are the bridge to our futures.  In the lives we live, in the individual choices we make.  We can live in fear of life enhanced by the news media’s gloom and doom reports or we can take small positive steps across the bridge towards a better future.  The choices that we make are very personal and individual.  However, each choice creates the pattern for the life that we live.  Each choice is reflected in the previous choice and the choice to come.

Look backwards to yesterday.  What choices are you living that are the consequences of the past? 

 

Look forward to tomorrow.  What choices do you want to make today that will ripple through and effect your tomorrow?

1004991834_5eVnU-LIf we finally put an end to the prejudices and persecutions that have caused so much bloodshed and suffering, we have to leave behind cultural traditions that justify violence and abuse in the foundational relations between parents and children and between women and men.  The acceptance of these violations provides a model for accepting human rights abuses across the board.

Riane Eisler “The Power of Partnership”

There is no reason for us to hurt another in any regard.  The unrest of the world is a reflection of our own unrest.  Take a look at your life and notice where you could be at peace.  Take one small step today to increase your own inner peace.  Have faith that this action will add to universal peace.

“If you try to view yourself through the lenses that others offer you, all you will see are distortions; your own light and beauty will become blurred, awkward, and ugly.  Your sense of inner beauty has to remain a very private thing.”

John O’Donohue “Anam Cara”

Maureen Simon

 We all hold a unique and distinct inner beauty that others do not always understand.  Be sure to view yourself through your own lens as you receive signs and messages and important information from your inner life.  Never be too proud to reject feedback but do so selectively.

Who is the Singer that sends his voice through the dark forest, and inhabits us with ageless and immortal music, and sets the long echoes rolling for evermore?  -Mary Webb, Gone to Earth

sun peaking through the sky- the voice of the soul

We all hold a powerful and unique voice within the depths of our being.  The voice may not speak to us with words, but lets us know that it is there, through a strong sense of knowing that we each know and hold within ourselves.  Many call this the voice of our soul.  In order to hear this inner voice we need to tune out the loudness and distractions of the world, both cannot be heard at the same time.

The Voice of the Soul informs the voice that we speak in our day-to-day lives.  Have you ever had a feeling that something wasn’t quite right?  You knew the answer was clear within yourself?  This is an example of how our inner voice informs us.

 

Take a look at your life and notice, in the past, times that you have a certain sense of knowing.  Respect and honor that knowing with a renewed sense of commitment.  This inner voice holds a great deal of information for us to benefit from. What is your inner voice of knowing trying to inform you of today. Listen.

When we think about the influence we have in our life and in the world- the idea of our personal power and how we use or do not use it – it always becomes a central theme.  Women have been a part of cultures that place power over her, as opposed to power with or next to her, for far too long.  We need to realize that only when we ourselves recognize and claim our strength, voice and power – as a daily practice – will we fully manifest it!

Maureen Simon

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the best ways to allow our inner strength to manifest is by fully contributing to life- by sharing our gifts and the parts of us that we love. By sharing our competence through speaking clearly and sharing what is most important to us -we will create a true and deep excitement towards living!  Also remember to use your past experiences to inform the future and to provide you with strength to which you can begin integrating past lessons.  Never be victim to the challenging days that have passed but use them to your benefit and advantage today.

 

Gloria Steinem speaks to this in her comment below:

“ I had been raised to assume all power was outside myself, but they (men) had been raised to place power almost nowhere but within themselves.  Often, they were suffering, too.  Just as the fantasy of no control was the enemy of my self-esteem, the fantasy of total control was the enemy of theirs.  For both of us, the goal should have been a point of balance in between: a back-and-forth between the self and others, uniqueness and unity, the planned and the accidental, our internal selves and the universe.  As wise women and men in every culture tell us, the art of life is not controlling what happens to us, but using what happens to us.”

Gloria Steinem “Revolution From Within”

 

 

Use life’s experiences to guide and to support you. You have all you need!

Stretching Our Minds

“A mind once stretched by a great idea or new understanding will never fully return to its original dimensions.”

William James

Life is always in motion.  You can never really go back.  Great ideas provide us with the inspiration and innovation that change and add to the quality of our lives.  Stretch your mind today.  Think of a new idea or a new way of doing something.  Notice how this slight change provides a new ripple across your life and affects many other things.

Divine Destiny? – What’s Yours?

After  many conversations with women — to get a better sense for what most of us need most today to be fulfilled, to contribute, to shine and  to make a difference in this world (which women really love to do)…it has become very clear to us that:

  • We all have a very special reason that we are here in this world
  • When we know this reason and incorporate it into our every day — our life comes alive and we contribute at a much higher level and are much happier doing so.
  • We  also become more excited about our life because it — all of a sudden has   a deeper meaning
  • We can measure our day and life against something greater than us and OUR needs (narcissism is becoming passé).
  • Life becomes VERY interesting.

In the research for the book the ability for women to make a meaningful contribution to the world she lives in showed up consistently — as a high value for women. When we are giving, caring and overlooking the needs of “the whole”- all- we are most happy.

What is your Divine Destiny?

Happy Autumn!
